The Presidents speech was powerful and moving. I realize many of our readers might not be familiar with much of the text so Ive excerpted parts of his speech here for your reading pleasure. I want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation. The con“dence that we have always had as a people is not simply some romantic dream or a proverb in a dusty book that we read just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea which founded our nation and has guided our development as a people. Con“dence in the future has supported everything else „ public institutions and private enterprise, our own families, and the very Constitution of the United States. For the “rst time in the history of our country a majority of our people believe that the next “ve years will be worse than the past “ve years. Two-thirds of our people do not even vote. The productivity of American workers is actually dropping, and the willingness of Americans to save for the future has fallen below that of all other people in the Western world. As you know, there is a gro wing The Presidents vision for the future of AmericaDAVID | 5 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENTAnother arrest was made in the murder of Trent Joseph Bartol-Thomas. For weeks, law enforcement has been looking for 22-year-old Tyrik Bell of North Port for his alleged role in the murder of BartolThomas during an armed robbery at a Porto Chico Avenue home on Jan. 10. According to a police report, Bartol-Thomas, 19, died trying to stop Bell, who was allegedly one of two masked gunmen who went to the home where there were about 10 people at a party. Five days later, police charged Dontae Lamar Stanley Jr., 21, with murder, home invasion robbery, three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Stanley allegedly was seen holding a silver .38 caliber revolver. He allegedly threatened to shoot two children and their mother while arguing over a missing cellphone. He was seen leaving on a bicycle. Police later found him, but Bell who was allegedly with him, was gone. A loaded gun with four rounds was found near by. The police report shows the weapons original serial numbers were tampered with. Not long after, police began looking for Bell. In early May, North Port Police asked the public for help on social media two weeks ago saying there was a $1,000 reward from the U.S. Marshals for anyone who could give Bells location as he was a homicide suspect. NPPD recently tweeted Bell had been apprehended and thanked the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce for its assistance in the apprehension. Investigators have not released any details on how and when Bell Second suspect arrested in North Port murderBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUSPECT | 5From the steps of the Blanchard House Museum there rang a proclamation of freedom Saturday morning. Retired Lt. Col. Scot Shively reenacted the role of Union General Edward M. McCook, who on May 20, 1865 was tasked with receiving the surrender of Floridas Confederate troops, after which he read the Emancipation Proclamation from the steps of the citys Knott House, ending slavery in the state. Although President Abraham Lincoln had signed the proclamation in 1863, Florida didnt proclaim the emancipation until two years later on May 20, 1865, 11 days after the end of the Civil War. Blanchard House Director Martha Bireda hosted this years Emancipation Day Celebration. Not only did the day commemorate the 153-anniversary of the Florida reading of the proclamation in Tallahassee, but also the history of African-American culture in Punta Gorda. Its just a beautiful day,Ž said Councilman Jaha Cummings. We have people here from the museum network from about seven different counties that have come and its just wonderful for them to be able to celebrate with us.Ž The Blanchard House has been celebrating Emancipation Day since 2004, minus two years due to Hurricane Charley. This years event was also catered by Reeds Family BBQ. Its also an introduction into what the next years exhibit (at the museum) will be,Ž said Cummings. Next years exhibit will be the African origins of Southern cooking.Ž Over 100 people attended Saturdays event. The museum network makes up the Florida African American Heritage Preservation Network, a professional museum and historical reservation association formed in 2001 under its founding director, Althemese Barnes. Barnes currently runs the John Gilmore Riley Center Museum in Tallahassee. Barnes was presented with an award at the ceremony for her efforts in establishing and maintaining the network, as well as her work to preserve African-American heritage in Florida. The “rst thing that I noted on here (the award) was the photograph of Lt. Charles P. Bailey. How coveted this will be among awards. Thank you so much for recognizing me,Ž Barnes said. Lt. Charles Bailey, of Punta Gorda, broke racial barriers as one of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II. His reenactment was performed by recent Charlotte High School graduate Jordan Dixon who delivered a lengthy monologue and a song, as well as taking pictures with the guests. Originally from Houston, Texas, the 18-yearold has only lived in Punta Gorda for around a year. He Jordan Dixon, 18, standing next to the bust of Lt. Charles P.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia With the next Hurricane Season less than two weeks from now, Charlotte County Utilities is on track to complete a list of corrective actions required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection after some sanitary sewers over”owed last year into surface waters during Hurricane Irma. DEP sent Charlotte County Utilities a warning letter in October about violations, and then a consent order followed on Feb. 28. In that consent order, DEP found discharges of hundreds of thousands of gallons of untreated wastewaterŽ and reuse quality waterŽ that entered surface waters through the stormwater system violated state rules and statutes. The utilities department was ordered to pay DEP $11,741.38 in civil penalties and costs, but in lieu of that it could implement an in-kind penalty project of greater value, records show. According to a Charlotte County Utilities Department Annual Report dated May 15, some projects in lieu of “ne amount to about $25,000. Other projects at additional cost are planned as well. Charlotte County reported to DEP it had 17 sanitary sewer over”ows during Irma in September involving extreme rainfall and power failure at lift stations, according to the Consent Order. DEP found approximately 500,000 gallons of reuse quality water and 122,200 gallons of untreated wastewater was discharged, the majority of which entered surface waters through the stormwater system.Ž The discharges violate Florida rules prohibiting release or disposal of excreta, sewage, or other wastewater or domestic wastewater residuals without providing proper treatment approved by the (DEP).Ž DEP also determined each discharge was a violation of state statute which states that it is a violation to cause pollution so as to harm or injure human health or welfare, animal, plant or aquatic life or property.Ž A list of corrective actions were ordered to be completed: € Provide an updated Emergency Procedure, as well as Operation and Maintenance Manual € Complete cleaning, testing and grouting repairs € Identify critical lift stations where emergency pumping will be installed € Buy portable generators or engine powered pumps € Increase in”ow and in“ltration efforts and repairs € Complete force main replacements (Placida and Forrest Nelson force mains) € Improve ”ows from mid-county to the plant by constructing a grand master lift station and gravity interceptor € Update FDEP quarterly on the progress of projects and submit a “nal report To date, weve made a plan to work on the several remedies itemized in the order,Ž said Charlotte County Utilities Department Interim Director Travis Mortimer. A December, 2019 deadline is expected to be met and funding through reserves is available to handle projects required by the Consent Order, he con“rmed.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comDEP orders corrective actions from Charlotte County UtilitiesBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITERSARASOTA „ With Sarasota County commissioners already accepting the offer from the Florida Department of Transportation, this Tuesday they will discuss the next steps that will turn River Road into a state highway. The discussion will likely occur in the late morning under County Administrator Jonathan Lewis report. On March 8, after being told that FDOT was unwilling to negotiate the terms of its original offer, commissioners unanimously voted to accept the deal, which means the state will take over River Road from U.S. 41 to Interstate 75, and the county will accept responsibility for portions of Midnight Pass Road and Stickney Point Road, excluding two moveable bridges on those roads. The only way were going to get anything done in a reasonable time is to get the state to take it over,Ž Hines said during the March 8 meeting. Citing the growth in North Port and western Charlotte County plus the arrival of the Atlanta Braves, Hines added, We cant do this in little bites at a timeƒWe cant wait any longer. The time is now.Ž Now, its down to the nitty-gritty details of the deal, which commissioners will discuss Tuesday. According to a memo from interim Public Works Director Spencer Anderson, the process will start with the county sending a formal letter of acceptance to FDOT, followed by a county application to the State Infrastructure Bank to partially fund the estimated $24 million cost to improve River Road between West Villages Parkway and U.S. 41. Under the terms of the deal, construction of this section of the road will be the countys responsibility, but the state will pick up the tab for any cost overruns in excess of the $24 million. The county and the West Villages Improvement District have been in discussions since last year over an interlocal agreement allowing the district to make the improvements in return for future impact fee credits. Later this year, the county and FDOT would execute the appropriate documents to make the road swap of“cial. Having the road under state ownership is necessary before the state can approve any funding to improve the road. In 2019 and into 2020, Anderson wrote in the memo, the county would approve the loan agreement with the state, and complete the right of way acquisition, design, permitting, and construction plans for bidding for the section between I-75 and West Villages Parkway. These items are also part of the countys obligation under the agreement. The year 2020 would see the project for West Villages Parkway to U.S. 41 put out for bid, with construction occurring from 2021 to 2023. In 2024, the state would construct the “nal portion of the road to I-75. While the county tried to get the state to also accept River Road from U.S. 41 to S.R. 776 in Englewood, the state balked at that proposal. While the county has the necessary right of way from U.S. 41 to Winchester Boulevard, there are no estimates on the cost of construction for this section. Both Hines and Lewis held out hope that the state will accept this “nal portion of River Road in the future. Commissioners will meet Tuesday and Wednesday in commission chambers at the County Administration Center, 1660 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. The meetings will begin at 9 a.m. both days. Access Sarasota TV will also televise the meetings, and the agendas are available at by clicking on Meetings and Agendas under the Services A-Z tab. For more information, residents can also call the countys Call Center at 941-861-5000. Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comDiscussing next steps on River RoadBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENT SARASOTA „ Members of Protect Our Public Schools Manasota protested against a charter school that applied to Sarasota County Schools for a location near Palmer Ranch in southern Sarasota. The charter school would have been known as Pinecrest Academy Gulf Coast. The group protested against the Academicaoperated school. Academica is a Miamibased charter school service that runs several charter schools in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. We would like to see the public resources going into the Sarasota County school system, rather than a corporation,Ž said Carol Lerner, chair for POPS Manasota. Lerner said if Academica was allowed to open in Sarasota, it would look to expand further into the county taking kids away from the public schools. Lerner and other members of POPS spoke during public comment, calling for the denial of the application which would have no local representation in Sarasota. School Board members agreed. We wont have anyone invested here; all of our (charter) schools are homegrown,Ž Vice Chair Jane Goodwin said. Goodwin also added that the district already has a charter school in Palmer Ranch. Board member Caroline Zucker said that there was no community or parent involvement, and she couldnt stand behind that. Board member Eric Robinson agreed and felt that the district had better public schools and the curriculum presented by Pinecrest didnt align with the district. The board voted to deny the application. Chair Bridget Ziegler dissented. The board also voted to approve the addition of tele-health services to its insurance plan. Tele-health allows users to connect with doctors via webcam or phone to help diagnose simple aliments. The board approved the motion unanimously with no comment. Another item passed with little comment was the closure of School Avenue at Sarasota High School. The district has been working with the city of Sarasota to close the road which cuts through the campus in the interest of safety. Previously the road was only closed to vehicle traf“c during the school day, but foot traf“c could cut through the campus. With the changes the road will be closed to all vehicle and foot traf“c permanently in the interest of safety and security. Also passed unanimously was the approval to advertise the changes in Chapter 9 of the School Board policy, as well as the communications department organizational structure and the job description for social media strategist. Two items that caused divide was the approval of the job description for police of“cer and the new job description for executive director of safety and security. Ziegler called it a heavy lift and felt it was rushed. She also called the moves counter-productive. Both items passed with Ziegler and Robinson dissenting. The Sarasota County School Board will meet at 6:30 p.m. on June 5 for its regular board meeting in The Board Chambers, 1980 Landings Blvd., Sarasota. The meetings are broadcast live on The Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33, as well as on the districts website www. aherrera@sun-herald.comSchool Board denies charter schoolBy ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITER GET FIT FOR SUMMER SUMMER FAMILY MEMBERSHIP SPECIALVenice/Englewood € 3 Months: Only $159 (June-August) Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda € 3 Months: Only $125 (June-August )PAY NO $50 NEW MEMBER JOINER FEE!Venice Y 701 Center Road, Venice 941.492.9622 Englewood Y 701 Medical Blvd., Englewood 941.475.1234 Port Charlotte Y 1933 Quesada Ave., Port Charlotte 941.629.9622 Punta Gorda Y 2905 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda 941.505.0999 Membership Includes:€ Unlimited access to all locations € FREE child watch while you work out € Discounts on youth programs € State of the Art Family Friendly Fitness Center € Great selection of Strength Training Equipment € Group Cycling Center € Over 40 Group Fitness Classes each week Bodycombat, LesMills, Spin, Yoga, Barre, Zumba, MYZONE and much more! € FREE Personal Coaching Session € Steam room, spa, sauna, pool and hot tub adno=54534912

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 plans on going to college at Florida Southwestern College. I think its good for me to do this,Ž said Dixon. I learned about the past ... history in this town ... and Black history in the community and that theres so much history. It was really interesting.Ž Bireda stressed that the heritage of the Blanchard House belonged to everyone. The feeling of the crowd was one of togetherness and this is what we want the Blanchard House to be,Ž said Bireda. Although it is the Blanchard House of African American history and culture, it is the communitys museum because you cant tell Punta Gorda culture, unless you tell African-American culture, because together they built this town.Ž This belongs to our community and were so happy we have our new historic district and this is part of the historic district, not separated by race or anything like that.Ž Bireda also said that this years event was different due to the addition of members from the other museums of FAAHPN. We always have ceremonies in Tallahassee, where it was originally read. But this year, part of the network decided to come to ours because we always have one here.Ž Sylvia Umar is a member of the Connecting the Dots of Black History bus tour, which had just made stops in Fort Myers and St. Petersburg. We do this every year,Ž said Sylvia Umar. Last year we went up north to Tallahassee.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 disrespect for government and for churches and for schools, the news media, and other institutions. This is not a message of happiness or reassurance, but it is the truth and it is a warning. Looking for a way out of this crisis, our people have turned to the federal government and found it isolated from the mainstream of our nations life. Washington, D.C., has become an island. The gap between our citizens and our government has never been so wide. The people are looking for honest answers, not easy answers; clear leadership, not false claims and evasiveness and politics as usual. What you see too often in Washington and elsewhere around the country is a system of government that seems incapable of action. You see a Congress twisted and pulled in every direction by hundreds of well-“nanced and powerful special interests. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another. You often see a balanced and a fair approach that demands sacri“ce, a little sacri“ce from everyone, abandoned like an orphan without support and without friends. We can spend until we empty our treasuries, and we may summon all the wonders of science. But we can succeed only if we tap our greatest resources „ Americas people, Americas values, and Americas con“dence.Ž Regardless of your politics, this speech is a powerful call to action and a return to what made America great. Thank you, Mr. President. Sounds a lot like the current President, except it was President Jimmy Carter who made these remarks in 1979. Two different outsider Presidents brought in to drain the swamp, both hindered by the powerful status quo. The alligators dont want their swamp drained.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriffs website, Bell has been charged with homicide and “ve counts of aggravated battery. Bells last known address was on Bronco Lane, not far from where the murder happened. A search warrant was conducted on his home a few weeks ago. Investigators said Bell was known around North Port and Venice. He lived in the city most of his life. He attended local schools including a second-chance facility in Venice. He has been arrested twice. In 2013, as a teenager, Bell was charged as an adult and plead guilty to a distribution of cocaine charge. Court records show in 2015, he failed to show up for a hearing for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, deliver/ possess/sell an altered “rearm, and providing a false ID to an of“cer. In that case, he was allegedly at a Motel 6 in Venice when the manager smelled a cannabis coming from a room. She wanted the guests inside trespassed from the hotel. Bell gave of“cers a fake name. Police later found a 9mm gun hidden in a mattress and cocaine in the room that belonged to Bell, a convicted felon. He plead guilty and went to prison for nearly two years. He had recently been out for a short time before the murder.Email: SUSPECTFROM PAGE 1FROM PAGE ONE JAMES W. MALLONEE, P.A. LAW OFFICE JAMES W.

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 IEWPOINTThe Law of Suspects on Michigan campus Overheard at the pub ƒ Auto laws must be changedEditor: On Sept. 17, 1793, the Committee of Public Safety issued its charter of The Terror,Ž otherwise known as the Law of Suspects. The committee was given sweeping powers of arrest and punishment over individuals suspected of committing a crime. Neighbors turned on neighbors. Old scores were settled with a whisper to a committee member. Within three months, thousands of innocent people were imprisoned and many boarded a cart to transport them to the nearest guillotine. Fast forward 140 years later to 1933 in Germany. The Nazi regime encouraged its citizens to turn in anyone suspected of being disloyal to Hitler was usually a one-way ticket to the detention camps and ultimately, the extermination camp. As reported in the Wall Street Journal May 9, the University of Michigan maintains a Bias Response TeamŽ of administrators and police. The university encourages anyone to turn in their peers if they suspect that individual has been a target or witness to an act of bias. They are expected to turn in their fellow student or professor. While clearly no law has been broken, the Bias Response Team dishes out its own brand of justice which could include expulsion and its by-product „ a damaged reputation. Does this sound familiar Man thoughtfully: Well, I am lonely, hungry, and ƒ horny.Ž Woman: I can handle two out of three.Ž Man quickly: Im not that hungry.Ž Cherchez la femme. Or as my Mother said, A man chases a woman until she catches him.ŽRobert C. Carroll Englewoodin the context of the two historical examples Ive given? Fortunately, a federal lawsuit has been “led against the University of Michigan challenging the constitutionality of Bias Response Teams (there are approximately 200 colleges across the country which have formed these teams). I suspect someone wont like this letter.Stewart Ross Punta GordaEditor: Newly launched into the nether world of single septuagenarians, I have overheard the following three distinct conversations at local watering holes: Man politely: How old are you?Ž Woman leaning forward: Can you keep a secret?Ž Man: Yes.Ž Woman: So can I.Ž Man after some conversation: Can I have your phone number?Ž Woman with no hesitation: No, after such a poor marketing job for such a lousy product.Ž Woman with great empathy: Its been a while since your wife passed. How are you doing?Ž Editor: I moved to Florida three years ago and one major problem I found was automobile drivers. I do not believe reducing speed limits throughout Florida is the answer to reducing accidents. In fact, I would argue that it gives pedestrians one more reason to stop acting responsibly. Streets were created for automobiles not bike riders and walkers; thats why we have sidewalks. (By the way, these are amazing in North Port. They are lighted all the way from Interstate-75 to U.S. 41 on Sumter Boulevard.) One of the highest priority changes thats needed is cell phone use while driving. Texting and using any handheld device while driving should be against the law and enforced with large “nes. This should be the states highest priority. Additionally, giving people a drivers license for nine years without testing is another area that should be addressed. Its laughable that an individual in his or her 70s and 80s is issued a license for nine years with only an eye test. Lastly, the state law that gives an individual the right of way on city streets is the most ridiculous. People feel free to cross the street at any place, at any time, without even looking for vehicles. They even walk around using their cell phone or tablet without ever looking up to see where theyre going. Our Legislature should address these issues “rst before changing speed limits and further incentivizing pedestrians to ignore their surroundings.Eugene Riccio North PortArea programs emphasize getting kids to read earlyOUR POSITION: A number of programs in Sarasota and Charlotte counties are focusing on giving children an early appreciation of reading .Just about anyone will tell you how important it is for children to be good readers. A strong grasp of reading at a very young age sets the stage for success in the classroom. And, hopefully, that early appreciation of reading can transition into a life-long love of the printed word „ opening new vistas to a persons pursuit of knowledge and experiences in life. A handful of programs in Charlotte and Sarasota counties are aiming to develop a love of reading at an early age. The Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood, for example, has developed a program for parents and children called 1,000 Books Before KindergartenŽ „ an ambitious but worthwhile goal. The program asks parents to read books with their young children, up to age 5. Parents can go to the Elsie Quirk Library and pick up a reading log that can be “lled out as books are read. Each time the child and parent read a book, they “ll in a circle on the log. When 25 books have been read, you take the log to the library to receive a sticker. And, when 100 books are read the child gets a small prize. When the magic number of 1,000 is reached, the prize is bigger and comes with a certi“cate of accomplishment. Librarians pointed out that if you read a book a night, 365 in a year, that is 1,095 books in three years. Wow! Meanwhile, the Charlotte County branch of the United Way and the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading are teaming up to boost students reading skills. The program takes aim at the fact 67 percent of children in the nation are not good readers by the time they leave the third grade. And, 80 percent of those students come from low-income families. The proposed two-prong attack started with teaming up with nonpro“t groups to work on programs like the Suncoast Summer Book Challenge „ an 11-week event to require student to read and log six books at or above their reading level. Organizations like Big Brothers, Big Sisters will be involved in the program and the Patterson Foundation is providing funding. There is also a 16-hour course being offered to parents, school staff and anyone who wants to attend, that teaches how to engage with children and encourage them to want to read. And, “nally, kudos to, again, the Patterson Foundation, and the Charlotte County Foundation and the Rotary Club for “lling more than 1,100 Kindergarten readiness bags recently. Seventy volunteers spent hours putting items in bags that early learners might need before starting school „ things like beginner books, crayons and coloring pages. The bags will be delivered to each elementary school in Charlotte County and passed out to parents of incoming kindergarteners. A similar program is ongoing in Sarasota County and Angie Matthiessen, executive director of Charlotte County United Way, has made it a goal to turn the program into an annual event. We applaud these groups for their efforts to help our children become strong readers, building a foundation at a young age for success in both the classroom and life. Yes, the giant Publix supermarket chain has essentially endorsed Adam Putnam to be Floridas next governor and has thrown a lot of money into his campaign. Interesting but, in the big picture, so what? I “nd shopping at Publix to be a pleasure, especially when its deli fried chicken is fresh out of the cooker. The stores are clean, the worker bees are helpful, and by the time I reach the checkout line, it doesnt really matter to me what the company thinks about Putnam or any other politician. I go there for groceries, not for political advice. A lot about Putnams campaign rhetoric has been troubling, especially that elitist liberalŽ crap in his latest TV ad, the one that trumpets his Bartow roots, complete with hay bailing. Guess what, Adam? I bailed hay too, back in the day. I rolled sod. I recapped tires for $2 an hour. I dont think that quali“es me to lead the state. Adam. Please. Stop with the liberal bashing. You are better than this. Arent you? But I also understand primary politics today, which basically forces candidates in either party to prove they can appeal to the almighty base. Thats true of Democrats as well as Republicans, and its a big part of why politics today is so partisan. The baseŽ is “lled with dedicated voters who would turn out if the primary was held at midnight on a Thursday during a hurricane. To win the nomination, a candidate has to show he or she can be just as extreme and uncompromising as anyone in the base. Then the general election comes and everything changes. Thats when the everyday voter, with concerns that include politics but dont exclude everything else, turns out. And if Democrats can somehow ride a blue wave and gain control of the state Senate „ even if they arent successful in winning the governors mansion „ having the political savvy to work with the other side will be important. By that time, I dont think anyone worth a rats patooie will care if whoever wins the race was endorsed by Publix or anyone else. The issues in Florida are going to be the same for a while „ health care, guns, schools, transportation. The question for all candidates is how do they plan to address those things, not their stance on weekly BOGOs. If its going to be a strictly agenda-based administration, on either side, then people might want to stick their heads under the covers for the next four years. Rick Scott won two terms by about 1 percentage point each time. I wouldnt call that a mandate, but Republicans „ with the help of gerrymandered districts in the House and Senate „ treated it that way and rammed through laws that gave the cold shoulder to about half of the state. But thats getting ahead of things. Publix, based in Lakeland, understandably supports Putnam. He came from nearby Bartow, and he represents much of what that corporation stands for. Interestingly, there are some things they dont agree on. Remember how Putnam regrettably referred to himself as a proud NRA sellout?Ž Publix has sought to distance itself from the NRA, if not Putnam, after the Tampa Bay Times initially reported the chains signi“cant “nancial support of him. Im not saying that initial story wasnt interesting. It was good reporting and its helpful to know where the money comes from. However, it wont make me decide to shop somewhere else if I decide not to vote for Putnam. I mean, I really like Publix fried chicken.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 On election night 2016, Mark Schlissel, the University of Michigans president, addressed more than 1,000 students, declaring that the 90 percent of them who had favored the losing candidate had rejected hate.Ž He thereby effectively made those who disagreed with him and with the campus majority eligible to be targets of the universitys bias response teams.Ž That his announced contempt for them made him a suitable target of the thought police is a thought that presumably occurred to no one, least of all him. Now, however, this leader of a public institution is being sued for constitutional violations. So are some members of Michigans archetypal administrative bloat „ the ever-thickening layer of social-justice crusaders and orthodoxy enforcers who, nationwide, live parasitically off universities whose actual purpose is scholarship. These include Michigans vice provost for equity and inclusion, and the director of the Of“ce of Student Con”ict Resolution. Such bureaucrats have professional stakes in “nding inequities to rectify and con”icts to resolve. A splendid new organization, Speech First, headed by Nicole Neily, is not content merely to respond after the fact to violations of students constitutional rights. It is suing to invalidate Michigans elaborate investigatory and disciplinary apparatusŽ that exists to suppress and punish speech other students deem demeaning, bothersome or hurtful.Ž Speech Firsts complaint notes that the most sensitive student on campus effectively dictates the terms under which others may speak.Ž The university darkly warns that bias comes in many formsŽ and the most important indication of bias is your own feelings.Ž Speech First says that Michigans edi“ce of speech regulation, with its Orwellian threats to submit offenders to restorative justice,Ž individual educationŽ and unconscious bias training,Ž amounts to unconstitutional prior restraint speech and is too overbroad and vague to give anyone due notice of what is proscribed. Verbal conductŽ that victimizes,Ž or jeopardizes a social climateŽ that is safe and inclusiveŽ? Such vaporous language must have a chilling effect on humor, parody, satire or plain speech about almost anything. What constitutes forbidden cultural appropriationŽ? You will be told „ after someone, encouraged by the administration to do so, has noti“ed law enforcement. When The Wall Street Journals Jillian Kay Melchior asked Michigan for the records of one year of bias incident reports, the university thwarted this inquiry by imposing a fee of more than $2,400 for the public records.Ž If this secretiveness indicates that the university is embarrassed, this is progress. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) says bias response teams produce a surveillance state on campus where students and faculty must guard their every utterance for fear of being reported to and investigatedŽ by bureaucrats. Their profession is the suppression and re-education of those „ generally conservatives „ whose attitudes and opinions constitute, as Michigan students have learned from Schlissel, hate.Ž FIRE has established a grading system whereby colleges and universities are given green, yellow or red ratings depending on their commitments to freedom of speech and inquiry. Institutions are increasingly interested in earning FIREs green approval. FIRE gives Michigan the red rating that identi“es a university that has at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.Ž Frederick M. Hess and Grant Addison of the American Enterprise Institute, writing in National Affairs (Restoring Free Inquiry on CampusŽ), note that when, after World War II, the federal government decided to direct scienti“c and medical research through universities rather than government-run laboratories, there were worries that government might threaten free inquiry on campuses. Today, say Hess and Addison, ideological homogeneityŽ in academia is producing formal policies and practicesŽ whereby limits on speech and expression have become ingrained in campus culture.Ž Hess and Addison have a sensible proposal: Taxpayer funds should not be subsidizing research at higher-education institutions where the conditions of free inquiry are compromised.Ž Of the 30 academic institutions that received the most research funding in 2015, six (20 percent) received $4.5 billion from the federal government (11 percent of all federal research funds) „ and a red rating from FIRE. According to it, almost 40 percent of all federal research funds went to 25 institutions that have formal policies that restrict constitutionally protected speech. Michigan ranks third among all universities as a recipient of federal research funding. In 2015, its $735 million in federal funding was 54 percent of the universitys total R&D grants. Although Schlissel is ideologically blinkered, tone deaf and awfully complacent about his own ”agrant biases, his bias response teams probably are not worth $735 million to him. George Wills email address is georgewill@ campus oppression of freedom of expression George Will Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the Democrat from Minnesota, uttered a forlorn sentiment at a Center for American Progress conference. She said Democrats cant spend all their time bemoaning President Donald Trumps existence, and that her voters care more about soybean exports than Russian bots. Shes right, but good luck getting anyone to listen. If Democrats have a disappointing November, their consuming Russian obsession will have something to do with it. With special counsel Robert Muellers net allegedly closing in and the investigation having taken a lurid turn by broadening out to the Stormy Daniels affair, there are now reputable polls showing Trump at 44 percent. This doesnt mean hes in hale and hearty condition, but his standing is markedly better than six months ago, raising the question: Why didnt he think of getting embroiled in a “ght with a porn star earlier? Scandal politics is always very tempting, and the left, especially TV personalities like MSNBCs Rachel Maddow, have given in to it utterly. Its allure is understandable: Its easy. You dont have to do any of the hard work of public persuasion or re-examine any of your assumptions. Robert Mueller is your deus ex machina. It creates the delicious possibility of your adversaries not just being defeated or humiliated, but being ruined and sent to jail. Lock them up.Ž It transforms politics into a legal whodunit, with the Trump administration not just the locus of politics and policies you abhor, but an active crime scene to be tantalizingly dissected clue by clue. It offers the promise of vindicating your core belief that the 2016 election wasnt lost but stolen from you. Winning the midterms wouldnt be nearly as emotionally satisfying as righting the presumed wrong of Trumps election by exposing the malefactors truly responsible for it. This mindset insists that everything has to be, at bottom, a legal matter, not a political or moral question. So, when Trump denies he reimbursed Michael Cohen, it could lead to legal trouble. When he admits he reimbursed Michael Cohen, it could lead to legal trouble. Its never enough to say he had an affair with a porn star, paid her off and was dishonest about it, which would seem embarrassing and blameworthy enough. No, there has to be the prospect of him and people around him getting caught up in the grinding machinery of prosecution. Republicans adopted the same view in the 1990s. If they could af“x the scandal suf“x -gateŽ to any matter (Troopergate, Filegate), they thought they had hit gold. The public ended up caring more about the benign material conditions of the 1990s than Bill Clintons appalling conduct and attendant legal problems. Many elected Democrats, per Amy Klobuchar, seem to realize that the most politically promising attack against Trump is as a stereotypical Republican plutocrat implementing all the same textbook GOP policies, rather than as a Kremlin tool. But left-wing cable personalities, much of the mainstream press and the Democratic base are much too vested in Russia to ease off, and the amount of attention they devote to it is overwhelming. The Mueller probe has been covered like its a major scandal, with a missing 18 1‡2 minutes every other day, when it is only an investigation. It holds the possibility of uncovering a major scandal „ if, that is, one exists. A symptom of the Russia obsession is to consider that a given, when there is not yet any public proof. One theory about Trump has been that hes a master at creating distractions, i.e., every other eruption on Twitter is designed to draw attention away from some unwelcome story. But even he couldnt have devised a better way to keep reliable progressive mouthpieces on a topic that is less potent than the issuesbased attack on him and could yet prove a dry hole. That is what his opposition is doing to itself, because it cant resist the scandal temptation. Rich Lowry can be reached via email: comments.lowry@ walk into deep pit with Russia-gate Rich Lowry Turn on the ”ashing lights and crank up the siren: Scott Pruitt has an emergency. President Trumps embattled EPA administrator is an important man. He does not like to wait in traf“c. So, according to CBS News, he let it be known that he wanted his security detail to use police lights and sirens when taking him to the airport, meetings and social events „ even though such emergency equipment is for, well, emergencies. Confronted Wednesday by a Senate committee, Pruitt said the siren-andlights thing was a false alarm. There have been reports that you encouraged the use of lights and sirens on your motorcade even though there wasnt an emergency,Ž said Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M. I dont recall that happening,Ž Pruitt maintained. Udall rephrased. You personally requested that on a number of trips,Ž he charged. No,Ž Pruitt insisted. I dont recall that.Ž It was then that Udall revealed a just-released February 2017 email from Pruitts head of security, Pasquale NinoŽ Perrotta. Subject: Lights and Sirens.Ž The body consisted of one line: Btw „ Administrator encourages the use.Ž Throw that log on Pruitts “ve-alarm blaze of cartoonish corruption, as his explanations go up in smoke. The $3 million, 24/7 security detail that accompanied him to Disneyland and the Rose Bowl? Pruitt suggested that came from a threat assessment, but the EPAs inspector general reported this week that Pruitt requested the protection when he started the job. His $43,000 soundproof phone booth? The Government Accountability Of“ce said last month that it violated the law. The EPA of“cial who served as Pruitts personal real estate representative? Pruitt said she did that on her own time, but he admitted Wednesday he didnt pay her for it „ possibly making it an illegal gift. He is the subject of no fewer than 15 investigations by various federal entities. Actually, make that 16: Udall requested another Wednesday, into the EPA allegedly using taxpayer money for partisan social media. The president, and many congressional Republicans, have stuck with Pruitt, presumably because he has proven skilled at dismantling the EPA. But is there nobody else who can dismantle the EPA without acting like hes the Sultan of Brunei? I am concerned that many of the important policy efforts that you are engaged in are being overshadowed,Ž Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, advised Pruitt. Ya think? Theres his affection for “rst-class travel, because, as Perrotta put it, we believe that the continued use of coach seats for the administrator would endanger his life.Ž Theres his sweetheart deal on a $50-a-night D.C. condo, leased from the wife of a lobbyist. Theres his trip to Morocco, arranged by a lobbyist who then won a contract from the Moroccan government. Theres the stacking of EPA advisory committees and the prioritizing of projects recommended by donors and lobbyists. Theres the attempted exploitation of the Safe Drinking Water Act to give raises to top Pruitt aides, and the Pruitt friend who got a top EPA job but didnt show up at work for months. There are also the bulletproof vests, biometric locks, of“ce decorations, luxury hotels, dubious trips and more. Udall, usually one of the mildest members of the Senate, denounced Pruitt as disastrousŽ and a betrayal of the American people.Ž Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., mocked Pruitts security (nobody even knows who you areŽ) and called him a laughingstock.Ž Pruitt maintained a placid expression; only his legs jiggling under the witness table betrayed his agitation. He said nothing about ethical problems in his opening statement and, when prompted, said the allegations are motivated by policy disagreements. He blamed his predecessors for failing to develop processes ƒ to prevent certain abuses.Ž (Maybe a No $43,000 Phone BoothsŽ sign in his of“ce and an Emergency Use OnlyŽ label on his siren?) He also blamed the decision for him to have 24/7 security on law enforcement career of“cialsŽ „ even though emails reported this week by The Washington Post show the decision was made by a Trump political appointee. Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., asked Pruitt why, given that he requested 24/7 security on day one, he justi“ed the security by citing an August 2017 report on threats against him. Thats not the case,Ž Pruitt replied. No? Just a few weeks ago, Pruitt read from the August 2017 threat investigationŽ when asked by a House committee to justify his extensive security. Pruitts abuses of of“ce are catching up with him „ and no quantity of bodyguards, biometric locks, sirens and ”ashing lights can protect him.

The Charlotte County Commission chose Magnum Builders to design and build Fire Station 10 on Palm Island, after listening to proposals from the four top “rms who bid on the project Thursday. Were just thrilled,Ž Magnum Builders co-owner Clint Riley said after the vote. Were Charlotte County people, and were glad to be here working in our hometown.Ž The station was added to the countys list of capital improvement projects last year due to major de“ciencies in the existing facility, which cannot be renovated, county facilities director David Milligan said at the time. Located on a barrier island, the 3,200-square-foot station has unique needs, including the structural capacity to withstand storms and wave action and access to a second story, since land on the island is at a premium. At a county commission meeting last month, commissioners had some concerns over county staffs rankings of top “rms, due to how close several of the “rms landed in the 500-point ranking. The commission voted to hear in-person presentations from the top four. On Thursday, Magnum went up against Florida Premier Contractors, Wharton-Smith Inc. Construction Group, and Fowler Construction, each with 15 minutes to present their case to the commission. Commissioners asked questions about the teams experience on barrier islands and the design-build process, which Commissioner Ken Doherty said requires good existing relationships between architects and construction teams. According to Riley, the team of Magnum Builders and Sweet Sparkman Architects have worked on 44 “re stations, 10 of which were coastal “re stations on barrier islands. Sweet Sparkman Architects designed the Boca Grande Fire Station and has worked in the past with Charlotte County Fire Chief Bill Van Helden when he was with the Cape Coral Fire Department. Team members have already toured the island and spoken to property owners who may be interested in selling their properties to the county for the “re station. As part of the design-build process, the team, with county input, will determine whether they want to keep the “re station at its current location south of the bridge or explore other options. Fire Chief Bill Van Helden said at a previous meeting it would be advantageous to move north for quicker response times, but further research is required for county staff to consider its future needs. Riley, who will serve as project manager, said Thursday there are several valid options that will require the teams due diligence before anything is decided.Email: Charlotte chooses Magnum Builders for Palm Island fire stationBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER adno=721486 Notice of Certi“ cation of Tax RollPursuant to Section 193.122 and 197.323, Florida Statutes, David A.

ORLANDO „ The arms race to build new theme park attractions in Orlando is paying dividends. A new report released this week shows theme park attendance at the largest parks in North America last year was up 2.3 percent, powered by new attractions in Orlando. The Orlando market represents about a third of theme park attendance in North America, according to the report by the Themed Entertainment Association. Last year, Walt Disney World in Orlando opened a new land in its Animal Kingdom park modeled after the movie, Avatar.Ž Animal Kingdom saw an attendance increase of more than 15 percent, the highest of any major park in North America in 2017. Next year, Disney World is set to open a Star Wars-themed land, Universal Orlando Resort is planning another Harry Potter ride and SeaWorld Orlando is slated to open a land based on Sesame Street. In all, an estimated $10 billion is expected to be spent on attractions, hotels and retail and dining areas in Orlando, according to the Themed Entertainment Association. But the spending and building is not just limited to Orlando. We are seeing the largest capital expenditures that we have ever seen in our years of theme park development,Ž said Dennis Speigel, president of International Theme Park Services, Inc., a Cincinnati-based consulting “rm. Its nationwide and international. We are seeing the same kind of success overseas. Its a true global phenomenon. Everyone is hitting on all cylinders.Ž Growth was even bigger around the globe than in North America. The top 10 biggest theme parks worldwide saw an 8.6 percent attendance increase. Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in China and Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris both saw attendance increases of 15 percent. The Orlando theme park companies typically dont release attendance “gures. But the Themed Entertainment Association estimates that Disneys Magic Kingdom in Orlando had 20.5 million visitors, the most of any park in the world. Disneyland in California had the next highest with an estimated 18.3 million visitors, followed by Tokyo Disneyland with an estimated 16.6 million visitors and Universal Studios Japan with 14.9 million visitors.New attractions in Orlando power jump in park attendanceBy MIKE SCHNEIDERASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this 2017, le photo, a science lab is shown and is viewed while guests are in the queue for the Avatar Flight of Passage ride at the Pandora-World of Avatar land attraction in Disneys Animal Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World.Rabies alert issued for community Pregnant woman says man punched her and service dog on plane Judge tosses charges in fraternity pledges death Man charged with leaving girl locked in car at courthouseMIAMI (AP) „ The Florida Department of Health issued a rabies alert Friday for the Kendall area, which is a suburb southwest of Miami, after a raccoon tested positive for the disease. An agency news release says the raccoon tested positive Tuesday. State health of“cials have been working with Miami-Dade Animal Services and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to identify any individuals who might have been exposed to the animal. The rabies alert will last for 60 days. An animal with rabies could infect other wild or domestic animals that have not been vaccinated against rabies. ORLANDO, (AP) „ A deaf woman who is 5 months pregnant says a man punched her in the stomach and hit her service dog during a confrontation on an airplane as it arrived at a Florida airport. Hazel Ramirez says she and her partner, Matthew Silvay, were confronted Thursday by Timothy Manley, who objected to their service dog, Zariel, a Great Dane. Manley says the dog triggered his wifes allergies. An Orlando Police Department report says Manley punched the dog, upsetting Ramirez and Silvay, who yelled at Manley. Ramirez says she was punched during a subsequent physical confrontation with Manley. Of“cers took statements and referred the case to the FBI. Ramirez says she plans to press charges. TALLAHASSEE (AP) „ A Florida judge is dismissing felony hazing charges against four men connected to the death of a university student. The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Circuit Judge Martin Fitzpatrick ruled Friday that prosecutors have not shown clearly how the actions of the four men were connected to the death of fraternity pledge and Florida State University student Andrew Coffey. Three of the men still have misdemeanor charges pending against them. CLEARWATER (AP) „ Authorities say a Florida man left his 4-year-old daughter locked inside a car outside a courthouse while attending a domestic violence injunction hearing. | HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEState Attorney Jack Campbell is appealing the decision and said he hopes the appeals court would provide clarity on the states felony hazing law. Coffey, 20, died last November of alcohol poisoning after investigators say he was coerced to drink an entire bottle of bourbon. A Clearwater police news release says 52-yearold Dean Baaj was arrested Thursday and charged with child neglect. Detectives say Baaj arrived at the Pinellas County Courthouse around 8:45 a.m. Of“cials say he locked the girl in the car with the windows up and the sunroof open. A passerby heard the child calling for help about two hours later. Medics determined the child was “ne. The girl was turned over to her mother, who had also been at the courthouse. The temperature outside when the child was found was 82 degrees. 1797 Tamiami Trail Port Charlotte, FL 33948Cody.daniels@wells fargo.com941-585-0786 Investment and Insurance Products: NOT FDIC Insured NO Bank Guarantee MAY Lose Value Wells Fargo Advisors is a trade name used by Wells Fargo Clearing Services, LLC, Member SIPC, a registered broker-dealer and non-bank a liate of Wells Fargo & Company. 2012 Wells Fargo Clearing Services, LLC.

He found out all right, and it wasnt pretty. Ali Boyce rushed for 225 yards on 29 carries and three scores, and the Rams offense gained 568 yards from scrimmage as they pulled away in the second half for a 42-17 victory. Riverview quarterback Sean White rushed for 123 yards, while Michael Hayes added another 148 on the ground and threw for a touchdown for a team that went to the regional “nals last year and returns its offensive line and leading rusher. As a team that is much younger and not as deep, the Pirates got exposed, Ingman said. We left three or four touchdowns out there and gave them a free one. When you play a powerhouse like that, you cant give them free ones,Ž Ingman said. We have a lot to build and grow on, but we hung in the entire game and fought to the end.Ž Port Charlotte hung in for most of the “rst half and drew “rst blood when Devin McCormack kicked a “eld goal late in the “rst quarter. But the Rams quickly gained the momentum with a 14-play, 91-yard drive culminating in a Boyce short TD run to give them the lead for good. Jean Marc-Louis was picked off moments later by Matt Garcia, who took it to the house to make it 14-3. The Pirates used trickery to get back in as Bo Guy threw a halfback option pass to Dylan Lockhart to cut the lead to 14-10 before Riverview got that touchdown back in the “nal minute of the half to make it 21-10. It was all Riverview in the second half as the line wore down the Pirates. White and Boyce scored in the third quarter, and Jay Maglinone caught a scoring pass from Hayes to end Riverviews scoring. Logan Rogers showed some promise for the Pirates at quarterback, throwing a 36-yard touchdown pass to Guy in the closing minutes to close out the scoring and restore some dignity. Ingman said there were enough positive signs for him to look forward to summer workouts and fall, although there is a lot of work to do. Logan did well, and Marc had some ”ashes. Bo is one of our veteran guys and he played like one tonight, and there were some bright spots on the interior you cant see yet,Ž Ingman said. Well see a lot of things we have to get better on, but also the woulda, shoulda, couldas.Ž Josh Smithers, Riverview coach, was pleased with his teams play, especially against a well-coached team like Port Charlotte. Our defense is very physical and that takes its toll on guys, and we try to go as fast as we can on offense,Ž Smithers said. We look to out-tempo people and wear them down.Ž RIVERVIEW 42, PORT CHARLOTTE 17Riverview 0 21 14 7 … 42 Port Charlotte 3 7 0 7 … 17 First quarter PC … Devin McCormack 25 eld goal, :53.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSLocal restaurants can be dizzying revolving doors. No sooner do you get to know and love local chefs cuisine than theyve moved on to places where they can better stretch their wings. Some ”y farther than others.How are things in Barcelona?Two years ago, Chef Gene GenoŽ Cooley who was with Hurricane Charleys from day one, announced, Today marks my “nal day in a professional kitchen. After 27 years of grinding away in the BOH (back of the house) Im moving on to a new chapter in my life.Ž And so he did. But he couldnt stay out of the kitchen. Cooley and wife Shawn have been living like tourists in Europe, “rst settling in Barcelona and now „ thanks to HGTVs House Hunters International,Ž for which they were “lmed „ in Sitges, a beachside resort on Barcelonas Mediterranean fringe. Think Punta Gorda without height restrictions. At the time the couple left Florida, Gene said,  Dean and Sandy Stainton have been amazing to me. Theirs reminds me so much of my moms restaurant in Detroit, because theyre a family business, in a nice, small community.Ž Once a chef, always a chef. It didnt take Gene long to connect with Sports Bar Sitges, an American-style restaurant run by Spanish-style Staintons, who own two other restaurants, hotels and a catering business. We met one of the owners during our “ve-day shoot for House Hunters International,Ž said Gene. I told him I was a chef, and he basically said, Great! When can you start?Ž Now Gene is culinary consultant for a restaurant just steps away from a Mediterranean promenade, where hes making menu and procedural changes, and introducing the people of Sitges to the thrill of spicy Buffalo sauce. The job lets him and Shawn travel as much as they like, and frees him from the daily line grind. And now I get another kitchen name,Ž he laughed. Back home its Geno, Gene or G. Now I have to answer to Eugenio from the kitchen staff or Evgeni from the Russian servers.Winks former chef sidelinedYoung Donnie Henson 19, had a dream job as chef-manager of Englewood favorite Winks Old Town Grill He was cooking up a storm at a place that he loved. Winks classics „ Reubens, fried seafood baskets, salads, steaks, burgers „ were ”ying out the pass. Shortly after his parents, Sydney and Jamie Henson bought Winks, he observed, Winks is old school, been here for years, handwritten tickets, one or two guys in the kitchen. I plan to keep it old E nglewood.Ž Until an unwelcome microscopic guest „ Karenia brevis aka red tide „ undid all his plans. Over a year ago, the airborne microorganisms made Donnie so sick that he was forced to move back home to Missouri, where he spent the summer with his multigenerational family while his parents sold the restaurant. Even then his illnessdriven travels werent over. In December he moved to Phoenix, far from the Gulf, but it turned out that smog also affected his lungs. The mountainous midpoint of Arizona proved ideal; there, he took up cooking again. He recently reported, I was cooking up until last month, when all of the smoke and steam gave me breathing problems again. Right now, Im looking to start a different career.Ž This positive young man, who loved cooking because it stretched him to his physical limits, feels con“dent that hell “nd something new. Ive been blessed,Ž he said. And Ive always been led to new places.

SueWADECOLUMNISTTHE SCENE NORTH PORT „ After several meetings and hours of “ne tuning, the City Commission will once again review what vehicles „ and how many „ are allowed to be parked in driveways. The North Port commissioners will meet to discuss the ordinance at a Tuesday night meeting at 6 p.m. on May 22. A nine-page table will be viewed by the commission explaining the changes from the original ordinance to their proposed new ordinance. The last time commissioners reviewed the documents was in January, which ultimately led to them directing staff to create an ordinance that would base the number of cars allowed in driveways on the size of the residents parcels. The average lot size in North Port is 10,739.55, according to meeting backup materials. For any lot less than 7,000 feet, six vehicles are allowed in the driveway. For lot sizes 7,000-20,000 square feet, eight vehicles are allowed. Any lot of more than 20,000 square feet can have unlimited vehicles. The ordinance de“nes vehiclesŽ as motor vehicles, recreational vehicles, boats, buses, trucks, truck tractors and trailers. They must be on an improved surface. The commissioners will also address several new topics on the dais: possible action for angled parking along U.S. 41 and possible creation of a Historical Registry Record System. They will also review a suggested tree planting for former Commissioner Buddy Hughes, who died earlier this month. The meeting can be viewed online at cityofnorthport.legistar. com/Calendar.aspx or YouTube, by searching City of North Port.ŽEmail: Driveway parking rules back on North Port agendaBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER Start your day with the Crossword Puzzle Mon.

Question: I had my agent change the description of my house to include as many of Zillows 15 magic wordsŽ as he could to increase my Zestimate. So far, it has not made a difference. Why isnt this working? Answer: Zillow recently published a list of 15 phrases it claims can signi“cantly increase the sales price of your home, if included in the listing description. Steam showerŽ tied for “rst place. Zillow reported that this phrase increased the sales price by 29 percent. Lets bring this home. During the past 365 days In Charlotte County, according to MFR-MLS, 4,515 single family homes sold for a median sales price of $215,000. Four of these homes included steam showerŽ in the listing description. Their median sales price was $737,500. The obvious conclusion is that Charlotte County steam showers are way more valuable than those in other parts of the country. Or, maybe not. Statisticians adhere to the principle that correlation does not imply causationŽ. The four homes cited above where steam showerŽ was included in the description were all waterfront homes. So, it is accurate to say that there is a correlation between higher-priced homes and homes with steam showerŽ in the description. That is true. But it is not true to say that the presence of this phrase caused the higher prices. There is also a correlation between cars that have a market value exceeding $100,000 and cars that have a Rolls Royce hood ornament. Does that mean if I attach the same ornament to my Lexus it will cause the market value will exceed $100,000? I wish. Question: Brett: As you know, I have made you part of my Estate planning. In my packet of Estate documents, I have included your card and instructions for my daughters to call you and put the sale of my house in your hands. Adult children who live out of the area are often clueless when it comes to picking a Realtor in an unfamiliar area. Ive seen some heirs get far less than the homes comparative value when they used a Realtor who wanted fastŽ not accurate. I think Realtor info should be a part of every estate plan. Do you think that it would be worthwhile to write a column about related estate issues when it comes to homes? Warmest regards, Pattie Answer: Pattie, kudos to you for being so thoughtful. My father did the same for my siblings and me. He was a real estate broker in Victorville, California. While alive, he gave us the contact info for the Realtor he wanted us to use to sell the home we would eventually inherit. That was an enormous help. Even though I was a Realtor myself, his thoughtfulness saved us many hours of researching and vetting Realtors on the other side of the country. It was very comforting to know we had a Realtor who met our dads same standards for integrity and competency. The Victorville market was very depressed when the time came to sell, but our dads go-to Realtor met our high expectations. So, yes, I think its very worthwhile to share what you are doing for your daughters, as our father did for us. Selling a parents home can be very emotional. Even when siblings are close, this can amplify tensions when major decisions require consensus. Or when multiple, strong-willed siblings assume they will be the one to take-on the leadership role in selecting the Realtor, etc. When the parent pre-selects the Realtor for their heirs, they are conveying to the heirs that the Realtor has already been vetted as trustworthy and quali“ed. That reduces stress and uncertainty for the sellers. Youve probably already thought of this, but I also recommend that the parent include the contact info for the family CPA or accountant, and attorney if applicable. This will facilitate locating or discussing important documents like wills, trusts, etc. In writing todays column, it occurred to Deb and me that we have been remiss by not including a Realtors contact info with our own estate documents. So, thanks again, Pattie. Brett Slattery is broker/ owner of Brett Slattery Realty llc in Charlotte County.

Page 14 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 Landscaping around an outdoor swimming pool re quires no-muss, no-fuss plant selections. The pool can be a flowery focal point, but dont open it to litter from leaves and limbs. Both inand above-ground pools offer unique design challenges and opportunities,Ž said Tim Moloney, an instructor in landscape design at the University of Missouri. In-ground pools offer the ability to provide screening with lower height plantsŽ but may have more issues with litter falling into the pool. Above-ground pools are somewhat sheltered from ground debris, but are more of a challenge for visually softening the walls of the pool and (adding) privacy from outside viewers,Ž Moloney said. Start by considering plant needs „ sun or shade. Then decide what you want your poolside landscaping to achieve. Privacy screening versus sun exposure is typically the strongest pool-owner concern,Ž Moloney said. This is followed closely by litter and tracking of grass clippings and mulch materials. After function is addressed, we focus on form,Ž he said. Making the space as enjoyable as possible.Ž Brightly colored flowers attract pollinators, and that could mean bee stings. Some of the most attractive ornamental plants have thorns. Both are obviously annoying to thinly clad and barefoot bathers. Typically, I have found that insects will generally ignore us if we ignore them,Ž Moloney said. Just the mere presence of bees in the landscape does not initiate attack. However, if severe allergies or phobias of bees exist, I recommend concentrating on other ways to brighten up the landscape „ brightly colored foliage, for example.Ž Or turn to marigolds, chrysanthemums, mint, foxglove, geraniums and zinnias whose blooms dont typically attract stinging insects. And thorns? Cacti are very climate specific, but can offer huge aesthetic benefits for arid environments,Ž Moloney said. Roses offer us what few other plants can „ an entire summer of repeat blooms. In my opinion, the benefits of these plants outweigh the hazards as long as the plants are positioned an appropriate distance from well-trafficked areas.Ž Some other poolside gardening dos and donts: Watch where you stockpile organic materials such as pine straw or bark. They can blow or be tracked into the pool by wet feet on pool decking,Ž Moloney said. Select plants for yearround interest, even in cold weather when the pool is closed. Think evergreens. Choose trees and shrubs that produce a minimum of litter. Almost any organic material that falls from trees „ needles, leaves, spent blooms, fruit „ has the potential to stain hardscape elements like pool decks and patios,Ž Moloney said. I simply try to balance the benefits with the concerns, and reach a compromise we can all live with.Ž Think about both day and night use. Evenings can be accented by soft peripheral lighting or featuring tree trunks with up-lights,Ž said Robert Brzuszek, a landscape architecture professor with the Mississippi State University Extension Service. Eliminate the use of dark-colored pavement around the pool; it adds re”ected heat to plants, especially in hotter, dryer climates. Plants that have smaller or waxy leaves will also lose less water than large thin leaves which dry out quickly,Ž he said.Swimming-pool landscaping: pretty with a minimum of debrisBy DEAN FOSDICKASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOThis 2017 photo provided by Grunder Landscaping shows a contrasting mix of long-owering plants separated from the pool water by a walkway in Dayton, Ohio. Poolside landscaping is a bit more demanding than the usual. Container plants can be moved to follow the sun while trees are kept well in the background to help prevent leaf litter.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 15 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMESWhen the time comes to decide on renovations, it can be dif“cult to prioritize your options. And chances are, there are a lot of projects on your wish list. To help you narrow it down, weve put together a list of “ve popular, cost-effective home renovations. From a whole new roof to a simple coat of paint, these projects will have great returns „ whether you want to sell your home or settle in. 1. Roof replacement If your roof is more than 20 years old „ or if youre itching to update it for style and curb appeal „ a total replacement may be in order. Its a big project, but its one that will pay off. A roof replacement can yield returns as high as 68.4 percent, according to Remodeling magazines 2018 Cost vs. Value Report „ making a new roof a good investment for future resale. According to HomeAdvisors True Cost Guide, a new asphalt shingle roof will cost $1,700 to $8,400, while a tile roof will range from $8,000 to $60,000. Consult with a roo“ng pro to review your options. 2. Kitchen remodel A kitchen can make a big difference in the livability of your home. And it can also make or break a sale. Clunky old appliances and well-lovedŽ countertops might keep buyers from seeing any potential to make the space their own. And these same details can take the joy out of your own morning routine. If youre tired of dealing with the same-old, same-old, consider a few small upgrades, like updated lighting and appliances to breathe life back into the space. A small remodel will likely cost around $5,000-$15,000, according to HomeAdvisors True Cost Guide. And a more substantial kitchen renovation will cost around $21,000-$22,000. The good news is that big-ticket kitchen remodels offer returns averaging 53 percent to 81 percent, according to the 2018 Cost vs. Value Report. 3. Painting Dont be afraid to take a small risk in sprucing up interior paint „ and exterior paint, if needed. But consider the atmosphere of the rooms youre painting, and be careful about entering into tacky territory with bright primary colors and mood-altering shades. A red dining room, for example, may be too exciting for an environment that is supposed to be relaxed. And it may also deter future homebuyers should you ever decide to sell. There are lots of neutral colors you can use to enhance your walls without reducing your chances in a future resale. Zillow reports that the most appealing colors for homebuyers are light blue, taupe, grey and greige. Most homeowners report paying just under $2,000 to paint a home interior, according to HomeAdvisors True Cost Guide, and just under $3,000 to paint a home exterior. 4. Bathroom remodel Upgraded bathrooms are one of the most soughtafter elements in a home „ both for buyers and homeowners renovating for themselves. The options for remodeling this space have grown to meet all varieties of budgets, which means that a sleek new bathroom is possible no matter how much you want to spend. Even better: Bathroom remodels offer an ROI as high as 56 percent to 70 percent, according to the 2018 Cost vs. Value Report. The typical bathroom remodel costs between $6,000-$14,000, but even small upgrades of around $2,500 can make a big difference. 5. Windows Windows arent just for ventilation anymore. If you still have standard, single-pane windows, youre probably spending too much on your energy bill. Single-pane styles allow for excessive heat transfer and UV radiation. Plus, theyre easily broken and unlikely to be sealed well against drafts. You can upgrade to double-pane, triple-pane and reinforced or tempered glass windows for optimal ef“ciency and a 70-75 percent ROI, according to the 2018 Cost vs. Value Report. And HomeAdvisors True Cost Guide reports that the average cost to install windows is $2,500-$7,500. A professional window installer will be able to help you pick the right materials and technologies for your home and climate.5 value-boosting home projectsBy LAUREN WHITEHOMEADVISOR 3 From ultraviolet rays to freezing rain, the elements can take a toll on your driveway. Fortunately, resealing your driveway can add a layer of protection that prevents the need for costly future repairs. In fact, professionally sealing your driveway can extend its lifespan up to 30 years while also enhancing your homes curb appeal. How often you need to reseal your driveway depends on factors such as pavement material, local weather conditions, exposure to the elements and the amount of vehicle traf“c your driveway receives. WHAT IS RESEALING? Resealing, also known as sealing or seal coating, is the process of applying a durable coating on top of pavement to prevent deterioration from weather, gas, oil spills and other ”uids. A professional sealcoat will repel water, one of the most detrimental agents when it comes to damaging both asphalt and concrete. Sealing your driveway can also help keep sunlight and oxygen from permeating the pavement and causing corrosion. Sealcoating stops small cracks from growing into big ones and can repel oil spills and grease to make your driveway easier to clean. Resealing the pavement is a straightforward, cost-effective way to double or even triple the life expectancy of your driveway. HOW OFTEN? The months between April and October are typically the best time of the year to reseal a driveway, but the best time to tackle your project will depend on your regions climate. During the sealcoating process, the outside temperature must be 50 degrees or warmer with no freezing nights. In most areas, its best to avoid resealing projects in shaded areas after early October. As a general rule of thumb, you should seal your driveway every one to three years. Heres a look at expert recommendations based on pavement type: Concrete. More durable than asphalt varieties, concrete driveways tend to last longer between sealing. With a concrete driveway, you can typically seal directly after installation and continue to reseal just once every “ve years „ even in regions with colder winters. When deciding whether its time to layer on a new sealcoat, check your concrete driveway for cracks. If the surface is looking porous or worn, reach out to a driveway pro to determine whether your driveway is in need of resealing or other maintenance. When compared to concrete, asphalt is generally more susceptible to damage from weather, water and traf“c. Unlike concrete, asphalt needs to cure,Ž meaning that you should never reseal a newly paved asphalt driveway until at least 90 days after installation. The process of curing enables oils to escape and prepares the pavement for the sealer. Once cured, a sealcoat should be applied promptly to protect asphalt from sunlight, extreme temperatures and other preliminary threats. After the initial seal, asphalt should be resealed once every three to “ve years. If you live in a climate with freezing winters and hot summers, consider resealing your driveway once every two to three years. COST? The cost to reseal your driveway will depend on your region, weather conditions and driveway size. According to HomeAdvisors True Cost Guide, the average cost to seal a driveway in the eastern part of the country is $.10 to $.16 per square foot. This means the cost of resealing a 1,000-squarefoot concrete driveway may range from $100 to $160. No matter where you live, resealing a driveway will cost less than an entire overhaul.Extend the life of your drivewayBY HOMEADVISOR adno=50534193 adno=50520363 NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING PROPOSED ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF NORTH PORT, FLORIDANOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at 6:00 P.M. or shortly thereafter, Ordinance No. 2018-12 was read for “ rst reading in the City Chambers located at 4970 City Hall Boulevard, North Port, Florida, with the second and “ nal reading to be held on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 1:00 P.M. or shortly thereafter in the City Chambers located at 4970 City Hall Boulevard, North Port, Florida.

Page 16 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 4 If youre like most of us, there are a number of small home repairs youd like to take care of but can never “nd the time for. Unfortunately, left unchecked, many small home repairs can turn into big, expensive problems. But there is a solution. If you dont have the time to worry about every minor repair on your list, hiring a handyman service is a great way to get multiple small jobs done without carving out time for multiple home service appointments.What small repairs are handyman companies likely to fix?The beauty of the handyman company is most are pretty ”exible when it comes to the services they offer. Of course, faulty faucets and sticking doors are handyman-friendly projects, but if you have something a little more substantial or obscure, theyre likely to be able to handle that, too. Go over your list with your handyman prior to their visit to ensure the most effective and quickest repairs possible. A handyman may be able to mend everything from a plugged shower drain to a rickety antique bed frame, but theres a good chance theyll need to make a trip to the hardware store to stock the supplies necessary to complete all of your projects.List all small repairs before you call a handyman companyIf you decide to hire a handyman company, its a good idea to have a list of small repairs ready. Taking a close inventory of every small repair will eliminate the need for multiple visits. Additionally, many small home repairs require a considerable amount of setup. For example, “xing holes in drywall involves “rst preparing joint compound. Since there is little difference in preparing enough for one large hole and preparing enough for one large hole and six small holes, making a list of these smaller holes will allow you to have them quickly “xed within the same visit and pricing structure.The cost of small home repairsIts easy to think hiring a handyman will be cheaper than hiring a contractor, but this assumption is only true in certain situations. Handyman services are typically hired to perform multiple small home repairs and can cost less as a result. However, if you have a one speci“c, complex problem, the specialist is generally the way to go. For example, if you have a stair that squeaks or a faucet that drips, hiring a handyman is probably your best bet. On the other hand, if you have a whole set of stairs to replace or a house full of two-pronged outlets that need to be upgraded, youre better off hiring a pro. The reason is simple: Having several small home repairs handled by a single handyman company is going to be cheaper than hiring three or four specialists. On the other hand, when dealing with a single severe problem, the specialized contractor will often have the equipment and expertise to more ef“ciently make the repair. You should also keep in mind that if any smallŽ home repair is valued at over $500, your state may require that you hire a properly licensed contractor.For small home repairs, call a handymanBY HOMEADVISOR As herb and vegetable gardens, composting and other aspects of green living become more popular, many people with limited outdoor space are looking for ways to squeeze the most out of it. A client in a modern high-rise in downtown Chicago did not have a typical garden per se, but did have a large outdoor balcony with a beautiful view,Ž says interior designer Edyta Czajkowska, founder of the Chicago design “rm Edyta & Co. We created a garden space for her by using planters in varying sizes that she could plant ”owers and herbs in. We stuck to one plant per planter, which created an organic yet tailored look, while still elevating something as simple as garlic or chives.Ž Even a small patio or balcony can be made useful and plant-friendly, interior designers say. Here, Czajkowska and two other experts „ Connecticut landscape architect and designer Janice Parker, and Atlanta interior designer Jen Sypeck „ offer advice on creating a lush and plant-friendly area even in a tiny space. MAP OUT YOUR PLAN Assess your space realistically, says Czajkowska, and then seek inspiration at a home and garden store or on Pinterest. Decide what your goals are. Do you want to “ll the space with beautiful blooms, cutting some for indoor ”ower arrangements throughout the summer? Or would you love to grow an ample crop of herbs for cooking or become a composter? Once you choose, get creative. A vertical garden is a great option for smaller spaces as it only utilizes wall space, and you can actually plant quite a bit in it,Ž Czajkowska says. Just like with small interior spaces, youd be surprised at what you can “t into a space thats well thought out.Ž As you plan, consider which tools or equipment youll need for gardening or other outdoor work. One space-saving solution: For seating, choose closed benches with storage space inside. CHOOSE STRATEGICALLY If youre a “rst-time gardener, Sypeck says, start with a hardy plant like rosemary or lavender. Both of these beauties offer a statement moment, an ornamental element, aromatic bene“ts and are hard to kill.Ž Another good option is buying pre-made container gardens with plants and ”owers that work together. Chances are a garden expert paired everything with similar needs,Ž she says. That way, you can water accordingly and provide the correct amount of sunlight needed.Ž For vivid color without too much effort, consider a pre-planted container of succulents such as cheveria, kalanchoe and sedum. Theyre hardy, Sypeck says, but they dont look like it, as they produce vibrant colors and ”owers. When paired together, they create a striking container garden, with the same care requirements.Ž If you want color and beauty during the warm season, Parker says, stick with annuals for high impact color from May to October.Ž If your outdoor space doesnt get much sun, choose plants that do well in the shade. And in a limited space, choose plants that grow slowly and keep their form,Ž Parker says, like boxwood roses or Japanese maples. EMBRACE COLOR In a small space, Parker says, dont be afraid to go big. For example, instead of planting herbs or ”owers in small planters, choose one large and dramatic planter as a design statement. She and Sypeck say there are many beautiful, lightweight planters available made with a mix of “berglass and zinc or bronze, so you can create a dramatic look thats safe to use on rooftops or balconies where weight is an issue. I personally love mixing materials and styles with my outdoor containers,Ž Sypeck says. Layering with a variety of heights and textures is my approach, and I tend to favor copper, cement and stone, all with a soft, modern sensibility.Ž She also recommends repurposing unexpected items as eye-catching containers: An old copper ice bucket was one of my latest victims turned into a now thriving succulent garden,Ž she says. Ive also been known to spray paint a pot or two if Im craving a new color and vibe.Ž Even a small composting bin can be hidden inside an attractive planter, helping that practical item blend well into an outdoor living space. Earth tones work well for planters, Parker says, but one wonderful brightly colored planter can be terri“cŽ too. OTHER DETAILS COUNT Think of a balcony or small patio as an outdoor room, Parker suggests. Choose a beautiful table as a focal point, even if its small and will have plants on it. Also consider lighting, and how the space will look and feel at night, as well as during the day. If the outdoor space doesnt have electricity, no problem. Use LED candles or battery-powered lights clustered around the space. Outdoor lighting will really create a sense of intimacy,Ž Parker says, and welcome you out into the space.Ž As a “nishing touch, add a sculpture or other item „ like a decorative birdcage painted a bright color „ amid your plants.Squeezing the most out of small outdoor spacesBy MELISSA RAYWORTHASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOTo make the most of small outdoor spaces, use one large, dramatic planter rather than several smaller ones GROUPER NY WAY$14 Served with your choice of 2 sides(Sides not included with salads or pastas)(EXCLUDES BLACK GROUPER) adno=545350921255 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, FL 33953 | (941) 624-4225 125 Nesbit St., Punta Gorda, FL 33950 | (941) 637-8909 3100 S.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 VALLEJO, Calif. „ From the outside, homebuilder Lennars model home in Vallejo could be any other house in a new suburban development. But thats where the similarities end and the future begins, courtesy of a new smarthome partnership with Amazon. This week, Amazon and Lennar began showing off what they are calling the Amazon Experience Center, a pre-wired, voice-activated smart home at a North Bay Lennar housing development, along with similar model homes in seven other locations across the country. Lennar „ one of the nations largest homebuilders „ plans to build Amazons Alexa voice-assistant technology into the design when constructing all of its houses nationwide from now on. Because of the partnership with Amazon, this technology package will come standard and will not add anything to the base cost of the home. Alexa will be able to handle many of the mundane, everyday tasks that those who buy the developers homes currently do on their own. Talk to Alexa and, thanks to the Amazon Echo devices that are standard with the house, you can close your shades, “nd a movie to watch via Amazon Prime „ and the Amazon Fire TV that comes with the home „ schedule automatic orders of household goods, or order those things directly by using the Amazon Dash buttons that also come standard with the home. Finally, you can lock your doors and set your thermostat as you turn in for the night. Technology that handles such chores isnt new; Amazon, Google and Apple have offered voice-command assistant technology for years. But a home built from the ground up with a full suite of one companys home-control technology takes the concept to another level. And while Alexa „ or any other kind of voice-command platform „ offers convenience, the LennarAmazon connected-home model presents a slate of questions about just how much control one company can and should have over an individuals daily routines, habits and privacy. This de“nitely takes the everything store to another level, delivering not just products, but nearly every service one could need in a given day,Ž said Gene Munster, partner with tech research “rm Loup Ventures. A wholesale upgrade to a fully smart home gives Amazon a lot of power over whoever lives there. Each incremental smart device you control with Alexa is another touch point for the Amazon brand and makes Prime a little more dif“cult to leave.Ž During a tour of the Amazon Experience Center home in Vallejo, Tom Burrill, Lennars Bay Area division president, said that for some, facing such new technologies in the home can be intimidating,Ž but that seeing the devices in a home setting can alleviate worries about how everything works together. It (the Amazon technology home) lets you come experience it,Ž Burrill said. Amazon looked at Lennar, saw that weve got thousands of model homes around the country, and they said, Why dont we show what we can do?Ž Some see Amazon as a good steward of the personal data its devices gather in consumers homes. Are they always listening? Are they recording our activity? They clearly have the potential to do so,Ž said Michael Pachter, an analyst who covers Amazon for Wedbush Securities. But I think Amazon values its customer relationships and will take whatever steps necessary to ensure that privacy is maintained.Ž Amazon didnt respond to a request for comment about its Experience Center homes. But Lennars Burrill said the homebuilder trusts Amazon to handle and ensure the security of the systems. Customers still have the “nal say about whether or not to use all of the Amazon-enabled options in their homes. In reality, its just like anything else and people can turn it all off,Ž Burrill said. Including Alexa and other Amazon technologies „ Echo speakers, Prime video, home security service „ in someones home from the moment they move in may also lock a consumer into the Amazon tech universe. People typically like to stay with the systems they know rather than go through the rigmarole of switching and learning how to operate something new, so whatever company is providing the in-home technology will get an automatic leg up on its competitors. The concept is viable, but my concern is that this locks you into a single digital assistant and ecosystem. And not everyone buying a home from Lennar will want to have their home connected to just Amazon base assistants,Ž said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies, a San Jose-based tech research “rm. Amazon also monetizes customers information through targeted ads. Although it brings in a much smaller share of digital advertising dollars than Google or Facebook, some experts say its data-gathering technologies including Alexa, inside millions of Echo devices already sold into U.S. homes could help it gain on them over time. As you ask Alexa for things, youre kind of telling Amazon what your habits are, how many people you have in your household, what your interests are,Ž Forrester Research analyst Samantha Merlivat told this news organization in December. Amazon acknowledges on its website how it uses customers information. Amazon displays interest-based advertising using information you make available to us when you interact with our sites, content, or services,Ž the company says. Interestbased ads, also sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on our sites, visiting sites that contain Amazon content or ads, interacting with Amazon tools, or using our payment services, like Checkout by Amazon.Ž But the combination of tech products installed in the home „ and the ease they offer „ may be too much for many Amazon customers to pass up. The do-it-yourself approach that weve largely been using up until now puts too much of a burden on the user who must install, support, and then learn how to use what is often an unmanageable mess,Ž said Rob Enderle, director of tech consultancy the Enderle Group. By approaching this through the builder, and as an option, the homeowner gets a functioning interface, Alexa, they likely know and arent afraid of. The result is not only a happier user, but a system that will likely be used rather than randomly cursed at.ŽAmazon, Alexa and the connected home of tomorrowBy REX CRUMTHE MERCURY NEWS An Amazon Echo Dot displays a video feed of the backyard in a model home on Mare Island in Vallejo, Calif., on May 10.

time limit. The hundreds of moving parts and structures that keep your home running smoothly are under constant strain. And they will all break down sooner or later. This makes budgeting for emergencies essential, because you usually have no choice but to make immediate repairs when your air conditioning goes out, the sewer line breaks, or a roof leak ”oods your kitchen. Your home is a major investment „ indeed, perhaps your biggest investment „ so assembling an emergency budget is not only prudent, but also an essential tool of “nancial planning. HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? Financial planners say homeowners should build up an emergency maintenance fund of about $5,000, if possible. That should be enough to handle most sudden expenses, including major repairs such as a complete HVAC replacement. Veteran contractors recommend saving up between three and six months worth of your home expenses. This rainy-day fund is a good idea for more than just household emergencies; it will provide a cushion in the event of job loss, medical emergencies or other unexpected costs. WHERE SHOULD THE MONEY COME FROM? Financial planners recommend opening a savings account attached to your checking account, which transfers a set amount of money into savings every time youre paid. This can cover routine maintenance and emergencies. Financial experts say savers often forget about this automatically set-aside money, so it builds up faster than they might imagine. If you have no emergency fund, you would be wise to keep a credit card on hand with enough money available to pay for emergencies. This should be a last resort, since you could wind up paying high interest. You might also re“nance your home or take out a home equity line of credit if major equipment goes awry without an emergency fund to back it up. But whether this is a sound idea will depend largely on your personal situation. HOW TO PREPARE FOR EMERGENCIES You can plan for emergencies in ways other than saving money. Even if youre not planning to sell your home, a home inspection can provide insight into what systems are most likely to fail soon „ and it will typically cost only a few hundred dollars. An inspection cant offer guaranteed protection against hidden dangers, but arming yourself with information can help. You should also familiarize yourself with the home emergencies covered and not covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Be sure to hire reliable contractors to regularly maintain your HVAC and other systems. This offers a number of bene“ts: First, it will extend the lifespan of your systems; second, it will uncover problems before they become catastrophic; and third, it will put you on good terms with a contractor whos familiar with your home and more likely to jump you to the front of the line if an emergency should arise. This last part can be very important; you dont want to be thumbing through phone numbers trying to get someone on the line if your sewer main breaks on a major holiday. Paul F. P.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 21 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 9Volunteer Tammie Diehl is hosting The Fiction Writers Group on the last Saturday of each month from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. here at the library. The next class is May 26. The class is about getting started with your writing process, being able to draw readers in to your story, where you want to go with your story or memoir, and how to self edit as you go. One of the things that every one of the local writers groups tries to stress is that everyone can write. If you can tell someone something you did or describe something that happened, you can be a writer. The stumbling block for most people is how to get started. As a community volunteer for Charlotte County Library System and Arts and Humanities, Tammie is conducting the same beginning writing classes that she has previously taught on several campuses. The class is free and open to everyone. The series takes the writer from a budding idea to publishing choices and continues if there is an interest in learning and writing more. This is a hands-on class. Class members work on their own projects with guided help. Although there is no fee, please register with Tammie by May 24, so she may plan for handout materials, by emailing her at tamiami”@ I have always wanted to write a novel but, as many of us do, I have let time slip away from me dealing with the daily things of life „ raising children, going to school, working, etc. I have read many books about creative writing; here are some of my favorites. The Hidden Machinery: Essays On WritingŽ by Margot Livesey, is an interesting new offering. This book is geared towards people who love reading books and literature who also think they might like to write. The author digs into writing “ction and gets you to think about how the stories you write not only bene“t from your personal experiences, but also your understanding from reading other literature. I recently tried I Should Be Writing: A Writers Workshop in a JournalŽ by Mur Lafferty. Lafferty is an award-winning podcaster and has interviewed several famous authors about writing and how they ply their craft. This book provides lots of tips on how to improve your writing. The best advice is to just sit down and write; this work contains several good exercises to get you going. Sometimes that is all it takes to get the creative juices ”owing. Another creative writing book I enjoy is from Elizabeth Berg, Escaping into the Open: The Art of Writing True.Ž Berg writes heartwarming stories about women and their trials and tribulations going through life. In this book that is part autobiography and part writing instruction she provides an insight into her writing process. She also offers helpful and practical hints useful for any writer on how the publishing business works. Youll enjoy her interesting stories about her life and the handson writing tips and exercises. Get started on your story at the library. The Englewood Charlotte Library is located at 3450 N Access Road in the Tringali Recreation Complex off of FL-776/Englewood Road just before Spinnaker Boulevard.Writing class at the Englewood Charlotte library Lynda Citro The generic name for humans has always been John or Jane Doe. The equivalent in the canine world is Fido, and arguably Rover and Spot. Although it is said that the Romans named dogs Fido, we actually credit Abraham Lincoln for having the “rst famous dog known to be named Fido. They became buddies while Lincoln was still an attorney in Spring“eld, Illinois. Since Lincoln became the “rst president to be photographed, newspapers became interested in Fido and spread his picture across the US. With this publicity he quickly became the most well-known dog and Fido the most popular dogs name. The name Fido comes from a Latin word and means faithful, and that he was. It is said that Fido even attended President Lincolns funeral. There was another famous Fido during the 1040s, in Italy. Also an exceedingly faithful companion, this Fido would walk his owner to the bus stop every day to send him off to work. He would also greet his master at the bus stop at the end of each work day. Tragically, one day the owner was killed at work. That evening, Fido showed up at the bus station to “nd that his master wasnt there. Fido showed up the next night, and the next night, and every night for 14 years. Italian newspapers picked up the story, making Fido famous. They even built a statue to him in his home town. This Fido was indeed faithful until the day he died. The earliest known Rover was featured in a short “lm titled Rescued By Rover,Ž back in 1905. It is said to be the “rst “lm starring a dog. This was long before Rin Tin Tin and Lassie stole peoples hearts. In the “lm Rover saves a baby from being kidnapped. The “lms popularity became widespread as did the use of the dogs name, Rover. The “rst well known dog named Spot was not a Dalmatian. He didnt even have spots. He was more like a Cocker Spaniel, somehow named Spot. He was the little dog belonging to Dick and Jane, which was a book series used to help kids learn to read during the 1930s through the 1970s. Does anyone remember, See Spot run? See Spot play?Ž I am sure that somewhere there is still a faithful dog named Fido. There is certain to be a Rover roaming the farmland somewhere in the mid-west. There may even be a real spotted dog out there aptly named Spot. I would like to think that a Lassie is out there somewhere, trying to save Timmy from falling in the well, with his owner crying, Lassie please come home.Ž Phil Snyder is the executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society.

The county opened the annex at 6868 San Casa Drive this week. County of“cials describe the new annex as a full-serviceŽ facility. It houses the of“ces of Charlotte County Tax Collector, Elections, Human Services, Veterans Services, Senior Services, Property Appraiser and Charlotte County Utilities. County Commissioner Bill Truex, whose District 3 includes Englewood, maintains an of“ce in the annex where he can schedule appointments with constituents. Its fabulous,Ž said Lou Ellen Wilson, a volunteer with the Center for Abuse & Rape Emergencies, also known as C.A.R.E. C.A.R.E., along with the federally funded Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program and the free nonpro“t Englewood Community Care Clinic all were alloted of“ce space in the new annex. The new 18,900-squarefoot, four-acre annex replaces the 40-year-old, 12,000-square-foot annex at the same address. The old annex, now surrounded with a chain-link fence, is scheduled for demolition to make way for a parking lot. Until the second construction phase is completed, visitors will have to park in the existing parking lot. Only handicapped parking will be available in front of the new annex. Demolition on the old annex is scheduled to begin early in June and will take about three months, including construction of the new parking lot. The $6.5-million construction project was funded with the countys 2014 1-percent sales tax.

Julie Christy, case manager for Senior Services at the new Charlotte County West County Annex President George Washington offered this advice to his fellow citizens, It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign worldƒ,Ž in his 1796 Farewell Address. Five years later, President Thomas Jefferson echoed Washington when he urged the nation to follow a policy of, Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none,Ž in his First Inaugural Address of 1801. Notwithstanding the advice of Washington and Jefferson, We lose sight of the fact that weve been aided by other countries in nearly all our wars, from the French and Indian War (1754-1763) to the latest con”icts in the Middle East,Ž said Dr. Ronald Suciu. In his two-session short course Coalitions: Allies, Contentious Colleagues and Contrary Chums,Ž Suciu explores the overlooked alliances that have underscored the United States wars and armed con”icts. The course is set for 10 a.m. to noon May 23 and May 30 at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy 117 Herald Court, Suite 211 in Punta Gorda. After serving two tours of duty in Vietnam, Suciu earned a doctoral degree in war history from Kings College, University of London, before becoming a U.S. Military Academy West Point Fellow in History. He lectures at West Point, the U.S. Army Sergeant Majors Academy, was the Deputy Curator of the Military History Museum in Cape Coral and currently serves as the Librarian of the Military Heritage Museum in Punta Gorda. Too often American wars are framed as the United States versus a particular enemy, whether its the British, the Confederate States of America, the Germans, or the Vietnamese,Ž Suciu said. People forget that weve been involved in coalitions since the French and Indian War.Ž During the French and Indian War, an alliance of British-American colonial forces, British troops, and various Native American tribes fought an alliance of French-Canadian colonial troops, French troops, and Native American tribes. The stories of our alliances and our allies are lost over time in the focus on U.S. military history,Ž Suciu said. Although the general public always says we shouldnt be involved in coalitions, coalition warfare has been more the norm than the United States going in and steam rolling the opposition.Ž The history books tell us the United States won both World War I and World War II,Ž Suciu said. What isnt realized is, while the United States contributed to victory in both world wars, the British, French, and other nations had been fighting for years, and suffering millions of casualties, before United States became involved.Ž World War I began July 28, 1914, and raged across Europe for nearly three years, before the United States declared war on the Central Powers of Germany, AustriaHungary, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire on April 2, 1917. When the war ended on Nov. 11, 1918, the U.S. had been involved for just 19 months, while the British, French and its other European allies had fought for more than four years. When we study WWIIs Normandy invasion, we focus on the U.S. contribution,Ž Suciu said. There were others at Normandy on June 6, 1944, including British, Canadian, French, and Polish troops.Ž For more information or to register for Coalitions: Allies, Contentious Colleagues and Contrary Chums,Ž call 941-505-0130.The United States rarely fights its wars alone FGCU Herald Court CentreRick Ramos Looking for a Friend?

Page 24 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 12 Some 2,000 people thronged through the 2018 Hurricane and Business Expo Saturday at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta Gorda, presented by WINK News and sponsored by Sun Newspapers. They toured more than 40 exhibits and attended morning and afternoon hurricane preparedness seminars headed by WINK News meteorologists and Charlotte County Emergency Management director Jerry Mallet. The exhibits displayed myriad hurricane preparedness systems and advice, including doors, windows, water systems, construction, medical services, health care, life care, assisted living, boat security, and cleaning services. Charlotte County Emergency Management did a land of“ce business, as did the Punta Gorda Fire Department. The Animal Welfare League advised on pet safety, and the Red Cross and Salvation Army were on hand as well. A standing-room only audience of more than 500 attendees crowded the morning hurricane preparedness seminar, where presentations on hurricane development, analyzing, tracking, and storm surge were made by Wink meteorologists Jim Farrell, Matt Devitt, Zach Maloch and Brooke Silderange, using last Septembers Hurricane Irma as a model. Farrell said the hurricane center at Colorado State University has forecast 14 tropical storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes for the Atlantic and Gulf coasts during the 2018 hurricane season beginning June 1. But, he cautioned, Thats really irrelevant,Ž because if just one major hurricane hits here, it will be an active hurricane season for Charlotte County.Ž Devitt added that since Irma tracked east into Collier County last year, we dodged a bullet.Ž If it had tracked just 30 miles to the west, he said, we could have had an up to nine-foot storm surge in Charlotte County. Irma formed some 4,000 miles away, off the coast of Africa, yet eventually found its way up through the Keys, and up the Gulf coast, where it was analyzed and tracked all the way, not always with precise accuracy. Yet, he said, Computer models continue to improve, so we can be more accurate in the future,Ž Mallet advised the seminar audience to plan to have a plan, and I dont mean two days before. In an evacuation situation, he said, know if you should go, when you have to go, and where to go.Ž In some situations, he said, it could be just going to stay with friends or relatives on higher ground in Deep Creek or Arcadia. He counseled against evacuating to a shelter, however, where you would have to provide your own bedding. He said the most critical residents who should evacuate in a hurricane alert situation are those living in mobile and manufactured homes, which are least resistant to winds, and people who are electronically dependent, who need electricity to take care of their needs. And, he said, dont wait.Ž The longer you wait, the more traf“c there will be, and less gas, as people experienced by waiting to the last minute to evacuate for Irma. In evacuating, he said, Your best friend by far is your smartphone.Ž You can use it to “nd gas through the Gas Buddy app, to avoid travel backups through Google Maps, or to “nd available lodging. Also, he counseled, stay informed through local radio, TV and social media.Ž CNN or the Weather Channel, he said, arent going to give you a lot of information about Charlotte County.Ž One of the best ways to stay informed, he added, is signing up for Emergency Managements Alert Charlotte website, www. In a question and answer session following the seminar, one attendee wanted to know why there are no hurricane shelters in Englewood. The answer: there isnt high enough ground there to build one. The new high school, Mallet said, is just six feet above sea level. Another questioner wanted to know why there was always such a fuss about storm surge, where there hadnt been one in Charlotte County for a long time. He was right, Mallet said. The last serious storm surge was back in the 1920s. But, he cautioned, just because here hasnt happened in recent memory, doesnt mean it cant happen.Ž SUN PHOTO BY SEAN PORTERPeter Dunbar shows Cynthia Brillhart the dierent types of protective glass.SUN PHOTO BY SEAN PORTERWINK Chief Meteorologist Jim Farrell.SUN PHOTO BY SEAN PORTERCharlotte County Emergency Management Director Jerry Malett speaks to the public about hurricane preparedness.SUN PHOTO BY SEAN PORTERBob Brandner talks to WINK Meteorologist Scott Zedeker about the upcoming hurricane season.SUN PHOTO BY SEAN PORTERWINK Chief Meteorologist Jim Farrell kicks o the 2018 Charlotte County Hurricane Expo.Annual Hurricane and Business Expo draws 2,000By BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY BILL JONESThe City of Punta Gorda Fire Department handles hurricane questions.

A Something similar scene unfolded in south Florida after the Parkland school shooting in February of this year. We were inundated with long lines of donors after Pulse and Parkland,Ž OneBlood Vice President of Marketing and Communications Susan Forbes recalled. After the Pulse shooting, we collected over 28,500 units of blood in seven days, an unheard of amount to collect in a week, but by the following Wednesday, 85 percent of that had already been distributed to our hospital partners.Ž Many who donate after a tragedy do so, no doubt, to help the survivors. In reality, the blood used to treat survivors was donated days before. Weve been stressing all along the need for every city to have a ready blood supplyŽ Forbes said, and encouraging people not to wait for a tragedy to become a blood donor. A mass tragedy can occur in an instant and can put serious strain on the blood supply,Ž she added. On the night of the Pulse tragedy, the trauma center used 441 units of blood in 24 hours, which is an unprecedented amount of blood for one hospital to use in a 24-hour period.Ž Forbes said most people in general are not aware of what it takes to ensure a ready blood supply 365 days a year. It takes time for blood to be available,Ž she noted. People who donate today, their blood is going to be tested tonight and within two to three days, it will be available to be sent to the hospitals. So while the turnaround is very quick for a unit of blood, theres still testing and processing that has to take place for each and every unit.Ž Forbes, who has a background in television production, directed an Dont wait for an emergency to donate bloodDONATE | 2Speech-language pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, and swallowing disorders in children and adults, and every May their mission is to educate the public about the importance of communication and access to services. According to the American SpeechLanguage and Hearing Association (ASHA) forty million Americans have a communication disorder. Speechlanguage pathologists and Audiologists play a principal role in the assessment and treatment of these disorders and thus form a vital and necessary component of educational and health care delivery systems nationwide. Appropriate assessment and treatment of communication disorders yields a healthier, more resilient, and more productive population. Disabilities that impact on communication include cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, multiple sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), aphasia after a stroke, dementia, acquired brain injury, head and neck cancer and Parkinsons disease and related disorders. Hospitalized patients may patients may experience a sudden onset of a communication disorder following a stroke or as a result of medical interventions such as a tracheostomy or intubation. Patients who have been unable to speak because of being on a ventilator, have afterward described feelings of anxiety, fear, frustration, unrecognized pain, and loss of control, thus, assessing patients communication needs has been identi“ed by Joint Commission on Accreditation in Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) as an important component of care for hospitalized patients. Because speech is part of a shared systemŽ with breathing and swallowing, any disease process, developmental, acute or neurodegenerative, that causes changes to speech and breathing may also cause changes in the swallowing mechanism, and so another role for speech-language pathologists is the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia (swallowing disorders). Swallowing disorders affect 300,000 to 600,000 people yearly in the United States, and the impact of these disorders on daily life multifaceted and potentially severe, so, it is critical that people understand the treatment options available to them should they or a and loved one experience dif“culty swallowing. In evaluating a patient with a swallowing disorder, a speech-language pathologist will observe how a persons muscles work when they swallow, and may also perform special tests to see inside a patients throat.

May is better speech and hearing monthBy MARY SPREMULLIVOICE AEROBICS For more than 200,000 years, Neanderthals successfully occupied the cold, dark forests and shores of Europe. Then early humans came along. Archaeological evidence suggests that human migrants from Africa arrived on the European continent around 40,000 years ago. About that same time, the Neanderthals all died off. For decades, anthropologists have puzzled over what factors contributed to this rapid and total replacement of Neanderthals by their modern human cousins. Now, a multi-disciplinary team including mechanical engineers, neuroscientists and physical anthropologists have provided a new clue to this mystery by creating the “rst digital reconstruction of four Neanderthal brains. By comparing these brains with an average human brain, the authors suggest that different ways of processing information may have helped humans outcompete their hominid cousins.

It shows the herculean efforts of the victims, doctors, nurses and OneBlood personnel in dealing with what was at the time the worst mass shooting in U. S. history (until the Las Vegas shooting in October of 2017). The “lm aired on 50 television stations around the county over the summer of 2017, then was picked up by Amazon and is now available on its Prime video streaming service. The attack left 49 people dead and more than 50 injured, a majority of whom were transferred three blocks north to Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC), Central Floridas only level one trauma center. The documentary describes the situation at the hospital as wave after wave of victims were brought in with life-threatening gunshot wounds and the vital role the blood supply was playing in saving them. Every hospital has blood on hand,Ž Forbes noted, but they were going through it so quickly our team had to make eight trips to ORMC that night to get them more. We have different distribution centers around the state, and we were moving what was needed to ORMC. It was an unprecedented response to a massive situation.Ž In an emotional reunion, the one-of-a-kind documentary brings several of the Pulse survivors face-toface with the anonymous blood donors who were responsible for helping save their lives. Forbes and colleague Pat Michaels of OneBlood media and public relations worked together on the documentary. They tracked down the donors and called them. When we told them their blood saved Pulse survivors, many just burst into tears,Ž Forbes recalled. These people donated just a few days before the tragedy, never knowing their donation would end up saving a Pulse survivor. They are the anonymous heroes. They donated when there was no tragedy, and as a result ensured blood was available when it was needed.Ž OneBlood serves more than 200 hospitals, and blood is used every day at every hospital around the clock. Theres never not a need,Ž Forbes said. We never wake up thinking Im going to need a blood transfusion today, it just happens. We never think it will be us, but one in three of us will need blood at some point. These mass tragedies are a grim reminder of why a ready blood supply is so important,Ž she added. In addition to trauma patients, there are also premature babies, cancer patients, heart patients, transplant patients, sickle cell patients and the list goes on and on of people getting blood every day, and theyre getting it from people who donated two or three days ago.Ž There are more than 200 Big Red Buses on the street every day, and OneBlood also has more than 80 donor centers open every day.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 27 Falling is a serious problem for seniors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of three adults „ those 65 and older „ fall each year. Furthermore, over 700,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture. Because falls can be dangerous or even life threatening, every effort should be made to avoid their occurrence. In addition, many people who fall, even if theyre not injured, become afraid of falling. The good news is, falls can be prevented. Improving ones balance is a good way of helping to accomplish this. Good balance is the result of several body systems working together to help us stand and move comfortably and with control. These systems include the eyes (visual system), the ears (vestibular system) and the network of proprioceptors responsible for providing an awareness of the bodys position in space (proprioception). Proprioceptors (nerve receptors) are found in muscles and the joint-supporting ligaments found throughout the body. The information they receive helps to facilitate balance as we stand and move. Should any of the systems required for balance fail to work properly, balance problems will result. Should this be the case, a wide range of conditions are possible. These conditions, although they may possess different causes, have similar manifestations. Most people will complain of feeling dizzy, disoriented, unsteady or even giddy when standing or walking. These sensations can last for a short while or continue for days, weeks, months or even longer. They may decrease in intensity or become worse over time. Once present, they will make it dif“cult or impossible for one to maintain good balance. Even when the balance systemsŽ are working correctly, a number of conditions and/or behavior can exist that, over time, help to make good balance impossible. Inactivity and poor diet are examples. Inactivity will, quite often, lead to weight gain, loss of muscle mass (tissue), joint pain and weakness, and a decrease in bone strength. These conditions will, ultimately, affect balance. Ones diet, if it fails to provide the body with the important elements it needs, will -over timeprevent organs and systems from functioning properly. For instance, when calcium is lacking in ones diet, a decrease in the density (compactness and strength) of bones becomes possible. Such a condition, when it exists, is an important contributor to poor balance. Good balance is important for one to remain active, independent and productive. It is, therefore, vital that effort be made to ensure that its maintenance be a part of any attempt at ensuring safety, “tness and good health. The following seven tips are provided to help you gain more control of your balance: € Pay particular attention to the proper functioning of your eyes and ears. Have them checked by your doctor, at least, once each year. € Exercise regularly to ensure that your muscles and bones are kept strong. Also, make use of exercise programs such as Fusion One, yoga and Tai Chi Chuan. These programs will help ensure a conditioned body and facilitate good balance as well. € Ensure that your diet provides all the important nutrients required for good health. Place emphasis on protein, calcium and vitamins A and D. € Ensure that the drugs you are taking (if any) do not interfere with the proper functioning of the balance systemsŽ mentioned above. You may wish to check with your doctor or pharmacist. € Avoid smoking and the consumption of alcohol. € Get adequate amounts of rest and sleep. € Integrate balance stimulating activities into your life. Examples of such activities are walking, hiking and dancing. If you are -presentlyexperiencing problems with your balance or if you wish to continue maintaining your good balance, the Fitness Center at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County is offering its new members free balance improvement plans and training. For more information, call 941-6254175, ext. 263 or visit the Center at 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte. Keep in mind, also, that Fusion One, yoga and tai chi chuan classes are offered at the Cultural Center and are capable of helping you maintain and improve your balance.Understanding and improving your balanceBy GREGORY WHYTETHE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYS FITNESS CENTER PHOTO PROVIDEDGregory Whyte assumes the archer pose of Fusion One.

Also called re”ex syncope or neurally mediated syncope, vasovagal syncope, or VVS, is the most frequent cause of fainting in people. Although it sounds ominous, VVS is quite common and there are some recognizable triggers. Its important to note that syncope is the medical term for any type of blackout caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain, which is typical of fainting. According to the organization Syncope Trust and Re”ex Anoxic Seizures (STARS), VVS is a transient condition resulting from intermittent dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, which regulates blood pressure and heart rate. The Mayo Clinic advises that VVS occurs when the body overreacts to certain triggers. These can include the sight of blood, extreme emotional distress, standing for a long time, intense pain, dehydration, or prolonged exertion. During a VVS episode, the vagus nerve, which directly controls heart rate, can increase activity and cause the heart rate to fall, a condition known as bradycardia. Heart rate and blood pressure essentially go haywire in response to one of these triggers. When this occurs, heart rate slows and the blood vessels in the legs dilate. Blood then pools in the legs and lowers blood pressure throughout the body. These combined factors reduce blood ”ow to the brain and the person brie”y loses consciousness. According to St. Luke's Hospital, VVS often affects children and young adults. Unlike other types of fainting, VVS is not indicative of underlying problems with the heart or brain. However, doctors may run tests to rule out other conditions. In addition to avoiding triggers, people can often prevent VVS episodes by recognizing when they may occur. If dizziness, light-headedness, sweaty palms, and dilated pupils occur, a person can usually avoid fainting by lying down and elevating his or her legs. This will help restore proper blood ”ow to the brain. Also, a paper published in Circulation Journal titled Usefulness of physical maneuvers for prevention of vasovagal syncope says squatting and leg-crossing with muscle tensing can be used as a simple and effective preventive maneuver in patients with VVS. Some people can manage VVS with lifestyle changes, such as taking in more ”uids and eating more salt. Others may need medications prescribed by their doctors. VVS is usually not dangerous, and a person can recover after a few minutes. Blackouts can be dangerous if they occur while driving or if a person falls and injures himself during a VVS episode. What is vasovagal syncope? PROVIDED BY MCCFEELING FIT 5 of the inside of four Neanderthal skulls. Next, they created an averageŽ digital modern human brain and skull by combining MRI data of more than 1,000 modern humans. Once they had these two measurements, they were able to use a computer program to warp the size and shape of the human brain to match the shape of the interior of the Neanderthals skulls in a process called deformation. This method is not entirely untested. The authors report that the same process has been shown to effectively re-create the structure of a bonobo brain by morphing a chimpanzee brain, and vice versa. Using this technique, the researchers discovered that while the two types of brains were about the same size, there was a clear difference in shape. In particular, the authors found that the cerebellum, a region of the brain that lies toward the lower back of our heads, was signi“cantly larger in humans than in Neanderthals. This part of the brain is associated with speech comprehension and production, working memory and cognitive ”exibility, said Naomichi Ogihara, a mechanical engineer at Keio University in Yokohama, Japan, who worked on the study. And in this region of the brain, size does matter. The researchers demonstrated this by looking at data on brain size and abilities from 1,095 people that showed a clear relationship between the size of the cerebellum and language comprehension and cognitive ”exibility. The auth ors propose that because of their relatively small cerebellums, Neanderthals may have been less able to adapt to changes in the environment compared with the early human invaders, giving the humans a tremendous advantage. However, the teams reconstructions also suggested Neanderthals did have at least one advantage over early humans. The visual processing center of their brains, known as the occipital lobe, was larger than their human counterparts. Ogihara said the Neanderthals may have developed this adaptation in response to the low light levels in Europe compared with Africa, but it could have hindered them from expanding the cerebellum. If that is indeed the case, this volumetric trade-off worked for a very long time-until it didnt. Oh, and one more thing: Readers should remember, however, that this attempt to reconstruct the brain inside a fossil skull is new to the “eld, and perhaps could be improved upon in the future, Ogihara said. We would like to further elaborate our methodology by exchanging thoughts and ideas with researchers in the related “elds working on human brain evolution,Ž he said. Hed also like to use this method to reconstruct the brains of other hominins in the future.BRAINSFROM PAGE 1 When Alec Smith turned 26 last May and aged out of his parents health insurance, he discovered that he couldnt afford coverage of his own. Within weeks, he was trying to ration his diabetes medication because he couldnt afford a $1,300 refill. A month later, the young restaurant manager was dead. An autopsy found he suffered a critical shortage of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar and energy in the body. Now, Smiths mother is speaking out against the high and rising prices of prescription drugs and calling for legislation to prevent excessive price increases for essential medications. The price of insulin has gone up over 1,200 percent in 20 years,Ž said Nicole Smith-Holt of Richfield. Its not affordable. Youre price-gouging people who need this one product to live, to survive.Ž Drugmakers have faced growing pressure over the past year to rein in price hikes, particularly for older drugs such as insulin and epinephrine allergy injections, which have become more expensive without fundamentally changing. After accusing manufacturers of getting away with murderŽ last year, President Donald Trump is expected to offer new proposals for addressing costs. Minnesota lawmakers have crafted bills as well. But advocates believe more pressure is needed at a time when drugmakers, distributors and pharmacists have few financial incentives to change. There is so much money involved in health care and so many different competing interests that its really going to be tough to get the kind of change we need without significant external pressure,Ž said Dr. Vikas Saini of the Right Care Alliance, a national advocacy group that has targeted the cost of insulin. Eli Lilly and Co., a major manufacturer of insulin medication, agrees with the need for expanded access but argues that manufacturers arent solely responsible, a spokesman said. While Lillys list price for Humalog synthetic insulin has increased, its average price received, after discounts and rebates are paid, has gone down since 2009, said spokesman Greg Kueterman. This illustrates an imperfect system that requires more work across the health care community to ensure that insulin is accessible for everyone,Ž Kueterman said. Short-acting Humalog has tripled in price over the past decade and is listed at $275 for a 10 ml bottle, which typically lasts two to three weeks. Lilly is one of three synthetic insulin manufacturers being sued for their prices and marketing tactics. Smith-Holt participated in a demonstration at Lillys Indianapolis headquarters, and she will lead Saturdays rally in St. Paul. When Smith-Holt went to her sons Minneapolis apartment to sort through his belongings after he died, she expected to find a refrigerator full of leftover Mexican fast food and crusty pizza boxes. Instead, she found fruit and vegetables in the fridge and chicken and fish in the freezer. He was trying,Ž she said. Alec was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 23 after suffering flu-like symptoms. Living with his parents, he managed the disease. But it derailed his career plans, because he had trained to be a paramedic and believed his condition would make it harder to secure a job. He moved out in early 2017 and with his mothers help started shopping for health insurance. The best option had a monthly premium of $450 but an annual deductible of $7,600, which would have left him to pay for insulin, test strips and needles out of pocket anyway. He stayed uninsured.

Friends who saw him on Saturday, June 24, didnt notice problems, but his girlfriend became worried Sunday after he refused to go to a food truck festival, saying he didnt think he could eat any of the food. He skipped work Monday due to breathing problems and vomiting, and he was found dead at his apartment the next day. The official cause was diabetic ketoacidosis, an insulin deficiency that forces the body to burn fat and produces an overwhelming supply of harmful acid in the blood. His next payday was only days away, his mother said. Unfortunately, he didnt survive that long. He lasted 27 days without insurance,Ž she said. Lilly officials expressed sympathy when they met with SmithHolt, Kueterman said. Shes a woman with strong convictions who wants to make sure no one else falls through the cracks, and we admire her advocacy. We share her goal of ensuring that everyone who needs insulin has access,Ž he said. Some Minnesota legislators want more than sympathy for patients. Rep. Erin Murphy, DFLSt. Paul, authored a bill in Alec Smiths name authorizing the state to buy bulk insulin at a discount and make it available for free or low cost for diabetes patients with emergency needs. It doesnt take that next step of driving down the cost (of drugs), which is where we need to go,Ž Murphy said. But in the short term, I dont want another example of an Alec Smith.Ž Her bill received an informational committee hearing but will not get a vote this session. Fellow Rep. John Lesch, DFL-St. Paul, has proposed that the state pharmacy board monitor drug prices and alert the Minnesota attorney general to investigate any time a drug price increases by more than 50 percent in one year. Murphy, a nurse by training, said insulin drugs have improved in duration and quality over her career, so some price increases would be expected. But she argued that the increases in recent years have been unreasonable. Health system analysts say part of the problem res ts with middleman distributors. Pharmacy benefit managers negotiate on behalf of drugmakers who want their medications included on the preferred drug lists of insurance companies. But the managers are paid based on the savings achieved below a drugs sticker price, so they earn more as the manufacturers drive up those prices. This practice has been linked to rising costs even of generic drugs. People are pretty angry,Ž said Saini, whose organization is hosting rallies in several U.S. cities. Whats amazing to me about this, and I think this illustrates the failure of leadership, is that everybody is wringing their hands about it, from the president on down, but nothings happening.Ž Smith-Holt says she has struggled over the loss of her son, a goofy, gangly young man who loved his 5-year-old daughter and enjoyed spending time outdoors and at Minnesota sports events. She steels herself when she talks in public, including, when she spoke to Lilly officials. I actually was really proud of myself,Ž she said, that I was able to not lose my cool in front of them.ŽPRICESFROM PAGE 5 Better than Par Vision After all these years, my vision is still fantastic thanks to Dr. Frantz and his team at Frantz EyeCare.ŽCall today! 239.418.0999Fort Myers € Naples € Cape Coral € Punta Gorda € Lehigh Acres George McNeill PGA Pro Golfer & LASIK Patientadno=50536452 Accepting New Primary Care Patients MEDICAL PAVILION CLINICServing the Community since 1984€ Physical Exams € Womens Health € Minor Surgical Procedures € ECHOs € IV Therapy € X-Rays € Stress Test € Hospital Coverage € Weight Loss € Diabetes € Hypertension € Impotence € Allergies € Arthritis € Workers Compensation € Physical TherapyWe Accept Medicare Assignments Local PPO & PHO & HMOMONDAY FRIDAY 8am 7pm | SATURDAY 9am 3pmDAVID S.

A better job is waiting for you. These tips for overcoming fear of change can give you the boost you need. For plenty of people, the phrase new jobŽ is exciting because it signals opportunities to learn new skills, expand your network, and build your resume. But change can also be scary. Fear of change is a real thing for many people, but dont let it crush your career. If you “nd youre having a hard time getting your wheels in motion to start your job search, it might be time to confront your fears. After all, time doesnt move in reverse. The average person spends roughly one-third of their life at work,Ž says Kelsey Bye, a career coach in San Francisco. Thats a lot of time to let yourself feel unful“lled, unchallenged, underpaid, and unappreciated.Ž Read on for “ve reasons you might be afraid of getting a new job, along with some ideas for how to overcome your fears. Youre scared to leave your current employer hanging What will they do without me?Ž Julie Vessel, a Minneapolis-St. Paul career coach who counsels professionals in marketing and advertising, hears this question a lot. For loyal folks,Ž she says, the thought of disappointing their current employer or leaving them emptyhanded at a busy time is paralyzing.Ž Loyalty to an employer is admirable, but what about your loyalty to your career? You have to be the one looking out for your best interest„and career growth,Ž says Vessel. Face your fear: Give your all until the very last minute of your employment,Ž Vessel says. That way you leave as the person who gave their best every single day, not the person who dropped the ball.Ž You are what you do Denver-based career coach Leila Hock says many people are afraid to get a new job because their identity is tied to their current job. People often take refuge in their title, the company they work for, or their industry as identifying their self-worth,Ž Hock says. When that is the case, the idea of transitioning to a new job can feel like they are transitioning their identity„not just what they do to pay the bills.Ž And that can be as unsettling as looking in the mirror and seeing someone elses face instead of your own. Face your fear: Caroline Beaton, Kununus millennial career expert and a Denver-based writer who uses psychological studies to understand millennials at work, suggests getting to know yourself better before you take a leap. Understand your strengths and how you can and want to contribute to an organization,Ž she says. A simple way to tap into this is to practice selfaf“rmation. Youre more than just your job,Ž adds Hock. You are a complex, well-rounded being with interests, broader qualities, and diverse skills.Ž Youre worried you might hate your new job The devil you know is better than the devil you dont, right? Ive seen a lot of folks stay in miserable jobs for fear that they could be even more miserable somewhere else,Ž Vessel says. When things arent great in your job, its easy to assume thats just the way it is: long hours, bad supervisors, demanding clients,Ž says Vessel. But when things are bad, you owe it to yourself to go in search of better.Ž Face your fear: Plenty of people actually dont loathe their jobs„in fact, a whole lot of people really love what they do. So conquer your fear and your ignorance by doing some research about other companies. Go on informational interviews. Investigate the cool company perks that are offered elsewhere. Attend a networking event to meet people who work at other companies, and “nd out how they like their jobs. Your fear may turn out to be as credible as the boogeyman. Youre convinced you cant hack it Do you chalk up all your accomplishments to luck and battle a persistent fear of failing or fear of being exposed as a fraud? Imposter syndrome can drag even the smartest, most competent professional down a dark hole of despair. Know youre not alone. This is a fear that many people face at some point, personally and professionally,Ž says Cathey Stamps, a career coach and former therapist. Face your fear: One simple way to overcome self-doubt is by carefully reading job descriptions for your ideal job role. Study the duties involved and the skills required. Ask yourself: What skills am I using in my current job that are transferable to the job I want? What additional skills do I need to learn? Take the time to learn from your past„what worked for you as well as what didnt„and trust those lessons,Ž Stamps says. With an honest assessment, you are much more able to acknowledge your own skills and see where you need additional learning and support.Ž You positively hate being the new kid Youre comfortable at your current job. You have a routine, you have friends, you know how to “nd the best coffee in the building. Leaving that comfort zone and having to “gure out the of“ce politics„let alone where to eat lunch„among a new set of co-workers can be terrifying. Face your fear: The unknown can certainly be troubling, but its seldom as bad as we think its going to be,Ž Bye says. One way to get over your fear of being the new kid on the block at work: Start pushing yourself to meet new people now. Seek out new experiences. Join new groups and clubs outside of work. The more practice you have meeting new people and navigating the unknown, the more comfortable youll be stepping out in search of a new job.5 reasons youre afraid to get a new jobBy LEE PRICEMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR adno=719700 Mission Driven...

Page 32 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 When it comes to writing your resume, size does matter. Resume experts weigh in on how many pages your resume should be, based on your level of experience and occupation. The one-page resume vs. the two-page resume How many pages should your resume be? Theres an age-old debate about whether size matters that affects job seekers: How long should your resume be? If your resume is too short or skimpy, recruiters and hiring managers will think you dont have a lot to bring to the table,Ž says Peter Yang, New York City… based co-founder of the resume writing service ResumeGo. On the ”ip side, if your resume is too long and bloated, readers will likely get bored or annoyed.Ž So, whats the middle ground for writing your resume? While theres no hard-and-fast rule, says Kim Isaacs, a nationally certi“ed resume writer and director of based in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, your industry and level of experience can help you determine if your resume should be one or two (or more) pages long. When to use a onepage resume The one-page resume is ideal for entry-level workers, new college graduates, and those who have a few years of work experience, Yang says. Additionally, you should consider a one-page resume if youre looking to make a career change and dont have much experience relevant to your new goal. The quicker you can get to the point, the better,Ž Isaacs says. Hiring managers are busy people, sometimes having to sort through hundreds of applications. You get about six seconds of their attention when theyre making their initial fit-or-no-fit decision,Ž says Jessica Holbrook Hernandez, president and CEO of Great Resumes Fast in Callahan, Florida. So, how can you make good use of your resume real estate and really stand out? By being strategic with keywords, quanitifying your achievements, and, most importantly, keeping it concise. This way, your resume will make a good first impression on the recruiter, as it typically serves as your first point of contact when you apply to a company. Not to mention, a resume thats all over the place doesnt say much about your organizational skills, does it? When to use a twopage resume That doesnt mean you have to cram all of your experience on one page with a teeny tiny font that you need a magnifying glass to read. Readability and overall presentation need to be factored in, too. Most resume reviewers would rather read a well-laid-out, easy-to-skim, two-page resume than a one-page resume that jams too much information on the page,Ž Isaacs says. A two-page resume makes sense for many job seekers, especially those who are further along in their career, with 10 or more years of relevant job experience. The extra page may be needed to convey all of the critical information an employer needs to know, Holbrook Hernandez says. Keep in mind, however, that the second page likely wont get as much attention as the first, so its best to make sure youre using the right resume format (think: chronological vs. functional). When to use a three (or more)-page resume Most people believe resumes should fit on two pages max, no matter how long youve been working. However, as with all rules, Yang says there are some exceptions. For example, if you work for the federal government; youre a senior-level manager with a long track record of accomplishments; or youre writing an academic CV for a research or scientific position and have an extensive list of publications, speaking engagements, professional courses, licenses, or certifications; then you may need to extend your resume to three or more pages. The final word on resume length In the end, the length doesnt matter quite as much as the content filling the pages. If you can capture your qualifications on one page, great. But if it takes two pages or more, thats OK, too. Ive had new grads do well with two-page resumes and top executives do well with only one page,Ž Isaacs says. Just remember: Your resume should be a high-level look at your accomplishments that entices the hiring manager to want to learn more. A resume is like the copy on the back cover of a book, designed to make you want to read the book,Ž Isaacs says. Its not the whole book.Ž Once youve nailed down the right length for your resume, visit Monster to see whos hiring. Have your resume checked out We get it; it can be tricky writing a professional resume that covers all your stellar qualities. Remember, the stronger your resume is, the greater your chances of scoring interviews and landing a job. The one-page resume vs. the two-page resumeBy MOIRA LAWLERMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR You only get one chance to make a good “rst impression„so make it count. You got the job. Congrats! Now comes the hard part„ keeping the job by showing your new employers they made the right choice in hiring you. In a recent Monster Twitter poll, asking what was the shortest amount of time youve lasted at a job, 22% of respondents didnt even last a full day at a new job, while 14% made it past the “rst day, but couldnt hold on to the job longer than 10 days. Looks like your new employer really is paying close attention after all. In fact, a recent survey showed that executives can tell within two weeks whether entry-level hires will be successful or not. Thats not a lot of time„but the good news is, a lot of what you need to do in that “rst week is to watch and listen. Monster spoke with career experts to get their advice on how to wow your boss and impress your coworkers in that “rst week. On your “rst morning, while youre packing your lunch, review this list one more time„then, go knock em dead! Pause now, change later Yes, youre all “red up and you want to make things happen. You want to “x, change, improve everything. Thats why they hired you, right? Well, maybe. My best advice for the “rst week at a new job is to listen and observe “rst, and act second,Ž says Jaime Petkanics, founder of the New York City-based job search consultancy, The Prepary. Use your “rst week on the job to get the lay of the land, learn and listen. Once you have a really solid understanding of whats going on, who your key partners are and where you can add value, then start moving and making an impact.Ž Learn team and company culture In addition to the way your team works, its important to pay attention to how they like to live, laugh, have fun and interact. Every company is different, so carefully observe your companys culture and then adapt so you dont start off as the awkward one.Ž You can risk coming across as tone-deaf if you dont pay attention all the signals around you,Ž says Alison Green, author of the popular career advice blog, Ask a Manager. Pay attention to things like what hours people typically work, how long they take for lunch and how they communicate during the day.Ž If people tend to eat at their desks, eat at your desk, at least at “rst. If your co-workers want to talk about last nights episode of The Bachelor, “nd a way to chime in so you can be a part of the team socially, as well as professionally. Ask the right questions You should always ask questions if you dont know the answer or need more information,Ž says Kate Gremillion founder of Mavenly + Co., a New Orleans-based career consulting “rm, but make sure its not a question that you could have “gured out yourself.Ž You may remember Andy Sachs getting hung up on after she asks, Can you spell Gabanna?Ž in The Devil Wears Prada. Dont be that person. When in doubt, turn to Google “rst, co-worker second. Dont be the “rst or last to leave You might think the best way to prove your worth is to open and close the of“ce. But overworking can lead to burnout, poor performance, stress and job dissatisfaction. Take some cues from your co-workers and “nd a happy medium instead. At the end of the day, carefully watch what time people in your department leave the of“ce. You should aim to depart at the midpoint,Ž says Alexandra Levit, author of They Dont Teach Corporate in College: A Twenty-Somethings Guide to the Business World. You dont want to be the “rst one out the door, but if youre the last one, youll set a precedent that you are willing to work late for the rest of your days at that company.Ž Set expectations Once youve settled in and gotten a sense of how things operate, that “rst week is also a great time to sit down with your boss and really “nd out what he or she expects from you. The sooner you know, the more quickly you can start working toward achieving those goals. Ask your new manager what a successful “rst month and “rst six months would look like,Ž says Green. Managers often forget to spell this out, and talking through these questions will give you really useful information about what you need to achieve in order to be performing at the level your boss expects.Ž You may have some missteps in that “rst week„but try not to sweat it. After all, youll have the new kidŽ glow (and excuse) for at least a month. Use these tips as starting points, and youll be off to a great start as you transition into your new job.How to nail your first week at a new jobBy ELANA LYN GROSS MONSTER CONTRIBUTOR 2JOBS adno=50534469 Join Our Sales TeamOpportunity to earn up to $60,000 your “ rst year.Advertising SalesImmediate opening We will even train the right personWe are looking for our next sales superstar, is it you?DO you have a passion for helping small businessess succeed?DO you want to make a difference in the local business community?DO you like meeting new people?DO you like networking and participating in community events?We O er: Guaranteed base salary $25,000 Uncapped Monthly Commission plus bene“ ts, bonuses and expenses.

PRO-POWER AUTO SALES 4140 Whidden Blvd PC 33980 (941) 627-8822 If youre feeling pressure to throw in the towel, use these tips to stave off retirement and remain relevant to the workforce. Many companies value the skills that more experienced workers offer. While many people dream of early retirement, there are some who are perfectly content with working well into their golden years. The unemployment rate for workers 55 and over remains steady at 3.2%, nearly a full point lower than the national average of all workers. In fact, the American workforce is aging, with 35% of the workforce projected to be over 50 years old by 2022. The question is how old is too old to work? While answers may vary by individual since it often depends on a persons physical health, the nature of the job, and their “nancial situation, research shows that its going to become increasingly common to work past retirement age. In fact, less than half (45%) of workers 45+ said they expect to retire at or before age 65, according to an AARP study. When that same question was posed in 2004, the number was 62%. For those who plan to stay in the workforce for the long haul, heres what you need to know. Is age bias common? Short answer: Yes, though ageism doesnt appear to be rampant across the board. However, in certain industries, its almost unheard of to see people in their 50s or 60s thriving. Take tech, for example. Being in Silicon Valley, we face real age discrimination and the work culture is de“nitely one of youth,Ž says Dave Arnold, President of Arnold Partners, LLC, an executive recruiting “rm. Age bias can certainly hamper older job seekers. It can come in the form of employment algorithms that screen out anyone above a certain age, or job advertisements that call for digital natives, or that prospective employers think an experienced candidate will cost too much without ever asking,Ž says Susan Weinstock, AARP Vice President of Financial Resilience Programming. The good news is that many companies have really come to value the skill sets, knowledge, and work ethic that more experienced workers can offer. One study commissioned by AARP called A Business Case for Workers Age 50+: A Look at the Value of Experience found that members of the workforce who are 50 and older continue to be the most engaged age cohort. Weinstock also points out that studies reveal older workers to be: Less resistant to change Less likely to leave the organization Less likely to miss work Innovative and able to keep up with technology How to embrace your age Working well into your retirement years is certainly possible, but it does require personal branding effort and sometimes even a little creative career reshaping. Consider this: Nearly 40% of workers age 50 and over havent updated their resume in the past decade and, for those age 65 and over, the figure jumps to nearly 50%, according to a 2017 national AARP survey. In other words, just because youve been working for decades doesnt mean you should take your foot off the gas„not if you want to have career staying power, that is. Keeping your resume updated is just the start. Here are some other strategies to try: Stay in the know. Keeping your personal brand fresh, current, and relevant is especially important for older workers since one of the potential hesitations a prospective employer may have is that youre not up-to-dateŽ on the latest trends, says Joseph Liu, career consultant and host of the Career Relaunch podcast. To stay informed, he recommends subscribing to relevant industry newsletters and podcasts to learn about trends, leaders, and happenings, and attending conferences to hear the latest thinking on hot topics in your field. Unplug from your old tech ways. I think technology bias is valid in some cases, so it is important that as people go through their career they are continually learning the latest technologies,Ž says Arnold. Do what you can to demonstrate that continual learning and self-improvement are part of your core values by taking training courses and embracing new technologies. Dress the part. Keeping well-groomed and wearing modern styles can go a long way, says Arnold. Hire a personal shopper to help you dress, and work with your stylist„ or go to a younger one„ to keep appropriately current,Ž he suggests. This is especially important if youre doing the job interview circuit. Consider an agefriendly career switch. If youre not having luck finding positions in your field (or keep facing the overqualifiedŽ dead end), consulting work could be the answer. Consulting is one potential industry where being an older worker could be an asset,Ž says Liu, especially because dependability, domain expertise, a wealth of knowledge and skills, and a mature, wellinfor med outlook can be incredibly useful.Ž Although you might think of your age as an asset, its important to understand that not everyone will. Companies talk about cultural “t, but it is a mistake to equate age with culture,Ž says Arnold. I have met people of all ages who retain their sense of youth and vigor.Ž And so can you if you keep your skills fresh and embrace change.How old is too old to work?By DAWN PAPANDREAMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR Do you feel stuck in a job that makes you unhappy? The Art of Living DangerouslyŽ author Jennifer Murphy says the “rst step to determining your perfect job match is knowing what makes you tick. How to identify your job strengths to make a career change Use Your Strengths To Achieve Job Satisfaction Ever had a job„maybe even your current one„where you felt like a square peg trying to squeeze yourself into a round hole? Jennifer Murphy has been there. After a decade as an Army of“cer, Murphy earned an MBA and snagged a series of plum senior management positions at huge global corporations. You know, the type of jobs everyone would be happy to haveƒ right? Unfortunately, job satisfaction isnt one-size“ts-all. And in Murphys case, these high-level, dream-worthy jobs made her absolutely miserable. I felt trapped,Ž she recalls. I had created a lifestyle for myself that demanded a big salary, so I felt I couldnt step off the treadmill, even though I didnt want to be there.Ž Her book, The Art of Living Dangerously: The Rebels Guide to Thriving in a World that Expects You to Conform, explains how she discovered her true calling and made a career change„and how you can, too. Since starting her coaching “rm, No Limits Life Empowerment Institute, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 2012, Murphy has counseled hundreds of people who are unhappy in their careers because they arent using their talents to do work that challenges and excites them. When you dont like your job, you then tend to think about how much you dont like it everywhere else you go,Ž she writes. Not only is this highly stressful and hard on your health, but your friends dont want to hang [with you] because all you do is bitch about your boss or co-workers, and you cant relax enough to enjoy your personal time.Ž Monster recently spoke with Murphy about identifying your strengths and using them to bolster your search for meaningful work. Q : Why is it so important to know what our strengths are? A: Its the difference between thriving and just surviving. Tapping into what youre good at makes you happy to go to work every morning. If one of your biggest strengths is connecting with other people, for instance, a job that isolates you in a corner is not a situation where youll do your best work. Yet, so many people “nd themselves settling, as I did, for a role thats just not right for them. I recommend using the University of Pennsylvanias Positive Psychology Centers strengths-assessment tool (called the VIA Survey of Character Strengths), which anyone can take online for free. It ranks 24 strengths we all possess, in varying degrees, and tells you which ones are most presentŽ and least presentŽ in you. You can use that information, along with feedback from bosses and colleagues who know you well, to pinpoint the kind of work thatll make you thrive. Q: What if your perfect job means taking a big pay cut? A: Been there! And so many of my coaching clients are in that boat, too. First, once you know your strengths, do some strategic, big-picture thinking, and ask yourself: What kind of life would I want if I could start over tomorrow? What kinds of experiences do I want, and what kind of people would I surround myself with? What would I like to create and be remembered for? Get really clear on that, or you could “nd yourself taking a job youll like even less than your current one. Then, its OK to start small! If you are looking at taking a pay cut, at least in the short run, “gure out how much money you really absolutely need. When I left my last big corporate job, my then-husband and I started with small cutbacks in spending, like downgrading our cable TV plan and driving less. Start small, but start tomorrow„ dont put it off. By the same token, you dont need to make a big dramatic leap right away. Try shadowingŽ someone for a day or two who has the kind of job you think you want. You may love it even more than you thought„or you may discover you just liked the idea of it, rather than the reality. Q: What specific advice do you give your coaching clients who are job hunting? A: The most successful job hunters approach the whole search as a learning experience. After each interview, ask for candid feedback from the interviewer, and write down what you learn from that„ especially if you dont get a job offer. What can you do differently next time? What do you just need to let go of? Dont forget to make a note of what you did well and what went right, too. Job hunting is hard on the ego, particularly if youre moving beyond your previous experience and your comfort zone into something different. In doing that, youve put yourself out there. Youve allowed yourself to be vulnerable, and thats not easy„so give yourself the credit you deserve.How to identify your job strengths to make a career changeBy ANNE FISHERMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR 11CLASSIFIEDS/JOBS

The News Wire Sunday, May 20, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER CUBA: 3 SURVIVORS CRITICAL AFTER PLANE CRASHSee page 3. PAHOA, Hawaii „ Lava oozing out of cracks for two weeks in rural Hawaii neighborhoods took on new characteristics as fresher magma mixed with decades-old magma, sending a ”ow toward the ocean Saturday. Since a “rst “ssure opened up in a community on May 3, lava was mostly spattering up and collecting at the edges of the cracks in the ground. Two neighborhoods with nearly 2,000 people were forced to evacuate as lava claimed 40 structures. On Friday afternoon, the lava changed dramatically with one “ssure ramping up and sending a ”ow across a road, destroying four more homes and isolating residents, some of whom had to be air-lifted to safety. The change is attributed to new magma mixing with 1955-era magma in the ground, creating hotter and more ”uid ”ows, scientists said. Theres much more stuff coming out of the ground and its going to produce ”ows that move further away,Ž said Wendy Stovall, a U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist. By Saturday morning, two of 22 “ssures had merged, creating a wide ”ow advancing at rates of up to 300 yards per hour. Aerial footage from the USGS showed fast-moving lava advancing to the southeast. The ”ow was 1.5 miles from the ocean, scientists said. In the background, the footage showed lava fountaining 328 feet high at one of the “ssures. The fountains are created by vents closing, forcing magma to burst through a single outpoint, Stovall said. If lava threatens a main highway, more people will be told to prepare for voluntary evacuation. SANTA FE, Texas „ The suspect in the Texas school shooting began his attack by “ring a shotgun blast through an art classroom door, sending panicked students to the entryway to block him from getting inside, witnesses said. Dimitrios Pagourtzis “red again through the wooden part of the door and fatally hit a student in the chest. He then lingered for nearly 30 minutes in a warren of four rooms, killing seven more students and two teachers before exchanging gun“re with police and surrendering, of“cials said. Freshman Abel San Miguel saw his friend Chris Stone killed at the door. San Miguel got grazed in the stomach by another volley of shots. He and others survived by playing dead. We were on the ground, all piled up in random positions,Ž he said. Galveston County Judge Mark Henry, the countys chief administrator, said he did not think the attack was 30 minutes of constant shooting, and that assessment was consistent with other of“cials who said law enforcement contained the shooter quickly. But authorities did not release a detailed timeline to explain precisely how events unfolded. Junior Breanna Quintanilla was in art class when she heard the shots and someone say, If you all move, Im going to shoot you all.Ž The 17-year-old Pagourtzis walked in, pointed at one person and declared, Im going to kill you.Ž Then he “red. He then said that if the rest of us moved, he was going to shoot us,Ž Quintanilla said. When Quintanilla tried to run out a back door, she realized Pagourtzis was aiming at her. He “red in her direction. He missed me,Ž she said. But it went ahead and ricocheted and hit me in my right Hawaii lava flow ramps up as new magma mixes with oldGunman blasted through door, lingered for almost 30 minutesBy CALEB JONES and JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERASSOCIATED PRESSBy PAUL J. WEBER and JUAN A. LOZANOASSOCIATED PRESS GUNMAN | 4 LAVA | 4WINDSOR, England „ The son of British royalty and the daughter of middle-class Americans wed Saturday in a service that re”ected Prince Harrys royal heritage, Meghan Markles biracial roots and the pairs shared commitment to putting a more diverse, modern face on the monarchy. British reserve crisscrossed with American verve in a service that broke molds and created new ones. Choirboys and a gospel choir; the archbishop of Canterbury and the African-American leader of the Episcopal church; a horsedrawn carriage and ”owers hand-picked by the groom. The wedding was a global event, thanks to Harrys status as a senior British royal and Markles celebrity status after starring on the U.S. television series SuitsŽ for seven years. Yet it seemed somehow so personal „ and they both beamed like a couple who couldnt take their eyes off each other. In a rousing sermon that highlighted a bit of a culture gap between outgoing Americans and reserved Brits, the Most. Rev. Michael Curry of the U.S. stirred the congregation from its fairy-tale reverie, quoting Martin Luther King in in a sermon that had some reaching for hankies and others shifting in their chairs. Theres power in love,Ž Curry said, his voice rising. Love can help and heal when nothing else can. Theres power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.Ž He also quoted from the Song of Solomon in the Bible: Many waters cannot quench love, neither can ”oods drown it.Ž Joining the couple were a phalanx of celebrities, many of whom shared their wish to change the world. Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, Elton John, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, James Corden and David and Victoria Beckham all watched from rows of seats in the Gothic masterpiece that is St. Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle. The British weather was „ gasp! „ sunny and balmy, A royal wedding to rememberPrince Harry, Meghan wed in Windsor as millions watchBy DANICA KIRKA, JILL LAWLESS and GREGORY KATZASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Melania Trump returned to the White House in high spiritsŽ on Saturday following a weeklong hospitalization for kidney treatment, a lengthy stay that raised questions about whether the “rst ladys condition may have been more complicated than “rst revealed. President Donald Trump heralded her homecoming with a tweet that referred to her as MelanieŽ instead of Melania.Ž Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melanie is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!Ž Trump wrote before quickly superseding that tweet with another that spelled his wifes name correctly. Mrs. Trumps quiet return to the White House, her husband and their 12-year-old son, after “ve days at a nearby U.S. military hospital resolved a brewing mystery about when she would eventually be released. What remain are questions about the state of her health. Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, has declined to release additional details, citing Mrs. Trumps right to privacy. The First Lady returned home to the White House this morning,Ž Grisham said in an emailed statement. She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits. Our of“ce has received thousands of calls and emails wishing Mrs. Trump well, and we thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out.Ž First ladies are under no obligation to make their medical histories public. She had been at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington since Monday, when she had an embolization procedure to treat an unspeci“ed kidney condition the White House described as benign.

They also agreed on meaningful increasesŽ in U.S. exports of agriculture and energy products and greater efforts to increase trade in manufactured goods and services. The statement, however, provided no dollar amounts on how much China might boost its purchases of American products. The statement also was silent on whether the talks had made progress in easing the trade standoff between the worlds two biggest economies. Washington and Beijing have threatened to impose billions of dollars in punitive tariffs on each other. The statement said they did agree on the need for effective measuresŽ to reduce Americas trade de“cit, and to strengthen cooperation on protecting intellectual property. The statement said the United States would send a team to China to work out further details. One of the Trump administrations goals has been to get China to take steps that would lower Americas goods trade de“cit with China by at least $200 billion by the end of 2020. Outside analysts said it was highly unlikely that China would ever agree to a U.S. demand for a speci“c de“cit reduction target. Eswar Prasad, an economist and trade expert at Cornell University, said that Saturdays statement seemed to be an effort to de-escalate for the time being the growing tensions. The Trump administration seems eager to engineer at minimum a temporary peace with China to ensure a smooth runup to the Kim-Trump summit in June,Ž Prasad said, referring to the June 12 meeting between Trump and North Koreas leader. It is likely that this agreement, weak and vague though it is, will serve as grounds to at least delay the imposition of tariffsŽ that the United States and China have threatened to impose, Prasad said. There was a consensus on taking effective measures to substantially reduce the United States trade de“cit in goods with China,Ž the joint statement said. The two days of talks were led on the Chinese side by Vice Premier Liu He and on the American side by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The U.S. delegation included Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. Trump campaigned in 2016 on a pledge to get tough on China and other U.S. trading partners. He views the massive U.S. trade de“cit with China „ $337 billion last year, the biggest with any country „ as evidence that Beijing is engaged in abusive trading practices and has outmaneuvered previous U.S. administrations. Last August, Lighthizer began an investigation into Beijings strong-arm tactics to challenge U.S. technological dominance. These include outright cybertheft of U.S. companies trade secrets and Chinas demands that American corporations hand over technology in exchange for access to the Chinese markets. Last month, the administration proposed tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports to protest the forced technology transfers. Trump later ordered Lighthizer to seek up to an additional $100 billion in Chinese products to tax. China responded by targeting $50 billion in U.S. products, including soybeans „ a shot at Trump supporters in Americas heartland. The prospect of an escalating trade war has shaken “nancial markets and alarmed business leaders. In a separate controversy, the Commerce Department last month blocked Chinas ZTE Corp. from importing American components for seven years, accusing the telecommunications company of misleading U.S. regulators after it settled charges last year of violating sanctions against Iran and North Korea. The ban amounted to a death sentence for ZTE, which relies heavily on U.S. parts, and the company announced that it was halting operations. Chinese of“cials complained loudly about the ZTE sanctions when a high-level U.S. delegation, led by Mnuchin, visited Beijing this month. Trump waded into the fray last Sunday, tweeting that he was working with Chinese President Xi Jinping to put ZTE back in business, fast.Ž Media reports suggested that the U.S. was offering to swap a ZTE rescue for an end to proposed Chinese tariffs on U.S. farm products.US, China say Beijing commits to buying more US goodsBy MARTIN CRUTSINGER and PAUL WISEMANAP ECONOMICS WRITER 1 dead, 1 injured in cougar attack in Washington state Trump nominates businessman for Belgium ambassadorNORTH BEND, Wash.

NEW YORK (AP) „ A former Playboy centerfold involved in a custody battle apparently jumped with her 7-year-old son to their deaths from the 25th ”oor of a Manhattan hotel room, law enforcement of“cials said Friday. The pair checked into the penthouse suite of the Gotham Hotel at about 6 p.m. Thursday, police said at a brief news conference. They fell 23 ”oors, and were found on a second-”oor balcony at about 8:15 a.m. Friday in the rear courtyard of the hotel, police said. Law enforcement of“cials identi“ed the woman as Stephanie Adams and her son as Vincent. They were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The of“cials said she was involved in a custody dispute over Vincent with her estranged husband, a Manhattan chiropractor named Charles Nicolai, and police had been called to their home several times in the past few months. A receptionist who answered the phone at Nicolais of“ce said Nicolai would not comment and was unreachable. The New York Post pro“led Adams in 2013, saying that she had by then written more than 25 self-help books, ran an online beauty products company and managed the “nances in her husbands of“ce. She appeared in Playboy in 2003, worked with Elite Model Management and had two business degrees, according to the Post pro“le, The stereotypes are sexist and unfair,Ž Adams told the Post in the pro“le. Just because I look a certain way and have expensive tastes, it doesnt mean Im shallow.

The statement by North Koreas Red Cross came a week after Seoul said it would look more closely into the circumstances surrounding the womens arrival following a media report that suggested some of them might have been brought to the South against their will. Earlier in the week, North Korea canceled a high-level meeting with the South over U.S.-South Korean military exercises and threatened to call off a planned summit between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and President Donald Trump. The cancellation cooled what had been an unusual ”urry of diplomatic moves from Pyongyang following a provocative year of nuclear and missile tests. Kim met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a historic summit on April 27 where they issued a vague vow for the complete denuclearizationŽ of their peninsula and pledged permanent peace. More substantial discussions over the Norths nuclear weapons are expected between Kim and Trump in a meeting planned for June 12 in Singapore. The Norths Red Cross accused South Korean of“cials of evading responsibility and betraying the spirit of last months inter-Korean summit. It said Seoul should severely punish those involved in the case, send our women citizens to their families without delay and thus show the will to improve the NorthSouth ties.Ž Seoul had previously said it suf“ciently con“rmed the womens free will in escaping from the North and resettling in the South. North Korea had been accusing South Korea of abducting the women, who were working in China. Television network JTBC aired an interview earlier this month of a man it said was the manager of a restaurant in China where the women had been working. The man, whos now also in South Korea, said he carried out the escape under plans arranged by South Koreas National Intelligence Service and that the women were brought along without knowledge of where they were going. JTBC also interviewed four women who it said were among the group that arrived in the South. They said they didnt know where they were headed to until they reached the South Korean Embassy in Malaysia and that they wish to see their parents again. When the restaurant workers arrived in 2016, South Koreas then-conservative government said they represented the largest group defection by North Koreans to the South since Kim took power in 2011. Later in 2016, South Korea rejected a highly unusual overture by the North to temporarily send the restaurant workers relatives to the South to meet with them. South Koreas liberal government, elected last year, has reached out to North Korea in recent months in attempting to settle the international standoff over the Norths nuclear program.North Korea demands South Korea send back restaurant workersBy KIM TONG-HYUNGASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTONorth Korean defectors shout slogans during a rally against the possible repatriation of North Korean restaurant workers to North Korea, in front of the Government Complex in Seoul, South Korea, Saturday. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) „ Seven people in Saudi Arabia, including four prominent womens rights activists who campaigned for the right to drive, are being accused by state security of working with foreign entities.Ž Pro-government media outlets have splashed their photos online and on newspapers, accusing them of betrayal and of being traitors. The stunning arrests come before Saudi Arabia is set to lift the worlds only ban on women driving next month. The Interior Ministry late Saturday did not name those arrested, but said the group is being investigated for communicating with foreign entitiesŽ and providing money to foreign circles with the aim of destabilizing the kingdom. Pro-government media have published the names of those detained, which include Loujain al-Hathloul and Aziza al-Yousef. Both are outspoken and well-known activists whove pushed for greater womens rights.Detained Saudi women driving activists branded traitors WASHINGTON „ The Trump administration is aiming to roll out its much-hyped but longdelayed Middle East peace plan next month amid signs it may further alienate the Palestinians by slashing millions of dollars in funding for humanitarian and development projects in the West Bank and Gaza. Five U.S. of“cials and a congressional aide say the administration intends to release the peace plan in midto lateJune, shortly after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, although they cautioned that the timing could slip depending on developments in the region. They say the plans main authors „ President Donald Trumps son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and Trumps special envoy for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt „ have already begun quietly brie“ng select allies and partners on elements of the proposal. Yet any Palestinian willingness to even consider the plan would require conditions to improve and anger to subside considerably in the coming weeks, an unlikely scenario as the Palestinians say evidence of one-sided Trump giveaways to Israel continues to pile up. U.S. allies in Europe and the Persian Gulf also have felt compelled to criticize the administration for its approach. Ostensibly, Trump would need buy-in from those same countries to build enough momentum for any peace plan to succeed. The administration has been resisting congressional demands to fully close the Palestine Liberation Organization of“ce in Washington because Greenblatt and Kushner want to keep that channel open in case the Palestinians are open to re-entering negotiations with Israel based on the plan. The of“ce was ordered closed by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last November, but has been allowed to stay open for limited purposes under the administrations interpretation of the law requiring it to be shut down in the absence of peace talks. The prospect of Palestinian interest in the peace proposal appears dim, however, particularly since Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas recalled the missions chief earlier this week to protest Mondays opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. The embassy move is said to have contributed to violent protests in Gaza that were met with deadly force from Israel. Nearly 60 Palestinians were killed Monday by Israeli forces, drawing condemnations and calls for restraint from Europe and elsewhere. The U.S. declined to join those calls and, while regretting the loss of life, opposed efforts at the U.N. to open an international investigation into the violence. Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital, the embassy move and the administrations unreserved defense of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus policies have alienated and angered the Palestinian leadership, which accuses the administration of abandoning its role as a neutral arbiter in the con”ict. Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said any deal needs to be between the Palestinians and Israel „ not the United States. I dont need Jason Greenblatt. I dont need Kushner,Ž Erekat said. Its our lives.Ž That sense of betrayal may deepen signi“cantly this summer as millions of dollars in U.S. assistance to the Palestinians appears likely to be cut and the funds re-allocated to other regions. That money has been on hold since last year and existing funding for some projects will start to run out in just months if it is not approved in the next two weeks. If that does not happen, the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development will have to notify aid recipients that continued U.S. funding is not forthcoming and those programs will begin to be shut down. Local staffers would be laid off and U.S. of“cials running the projects would be reassigned elsewhere. Of $251 million in U.S. aid planned for the Palestinians in 2018, only $50.5 million has been reported spent, according to the governments online tracker, www.foreignassistance. gov. The remaining more than $200 million is currently on hold, a “gure that does not include an additional $65 million in frozen U.S. assistance to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which provides services to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon. The U.S. aid pays for programs on education, health, good governance and democracy promotion as well as disaster preparedness and security. For several months the White House has been sitting on State Department and USAID recommendations to spend at least some of the money, according to the of“cials. Three of“cials said there is no indication those recommendations will be acted upon any time soon despite appeals from lawmakers and even expressions of concern from Israel, which sees value in the assistance especially in the security sector. One of“cial said there was an overwhelming lack of urgencyŽ about making a decision on the funding. The other two said there was no sign that the end-of-May timeframe would be met. At immediate risk are between “ve and 10 of the some 20 USAID projects in the West Bank and Gaza, along with proposed new initiatives, the of“cials said. Without a quick decision those will run out of money by the end of 2018, they said. Nearly all of the others will run out of money in early 2019 unless the U.S. funding is unblocked, they said.White House pushes with Mideast peace planBy MATTHEW LEEAP DIPLOMATIC WRITER HAVANA „ The only three survivors of Cubas worst aviation disaster in three decades were clinging to life Saturday, a day after their passenger jet carrying 110 people crashed in a “reball in Havanas rural outskirts. Carlos Alberto Martinez, director of the Calixto Garcia Hospital in the Cuban capital, said doctors are always hopeful that their patients will recover, but he acknowledged that the three Cuban women were in extremely grave condition. Meanwhile relatives of those who died gathered at a morgue in the capital, weeping and embracing each other, as investigators tried to piece together why the aging Boeing 737 went down and erupted in ”ames shortly after takeoff early Friday afternoon. And the Cuban Council of Churches announced that 20 clergy members of an evangelical church were among the dead. On that plane were 10 couples of pastors, 20 people. All of the Nazarene Church in the eastern region,Ž said Maite Quesada, a member of the council. The pastors had spent several days at a meeting in the capital and were returning to their homes and places of worship in the province of Holguin. Skies were overcast and rainy at the airport at the time of Cubas third major air accident since 2010, and state television said the 39-year-old jet veered sharply to the right after departing on a domestic ”ight to the eastern city of Holguin. Eyewitness and private salon owner Rocio Martinez said she heard a strange noise and looked up to see the plane with a turbine on “re. In ”ames, here it comes falling toward the ground, and it seems (the pilot) saw it was an area that was too residential and makes a sharp turn,Ž Martinez said. To avoid (the houses) ... to avoid a tragedy, because there would have been a massacre.Ž Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said a special commission had been formed to “nd the cause of the crash. The plane had 104 passengers and six crew members. State airline Cubana, which operated the ”ight, has had a generally good safety record but is notorious for delays and cancellations and has taken many of its planes out of service because of maintenance problems in recent months, prompting it to hire charter aircraft from other companies. Mexican of“cials said the Boeing 737-201 was built in 1979 and rented by Cubana from Aerolineas Damojh, a small charter company that also goes by the name Global Air. Aviation authorities in Guyana last year stopped the same aircraft from conducting charter ”ights because of serious safety concerns, including fears about excessive baggage overloading and other issues. Outside the companys Mexico City of“ces on Friday, former Global Air ”ight attendant Ana Marlen Covarrubias said she had worked for the company for over seven years and knows nearly all the crew members. In addition to the Mexican crew, Cuban Communist Party newspaper Granma reported that the passengers were mostly Cubans plus “ve foreigners from countries it did not identify. Argentinas Foreign Ministry said two of its citizens had died in the crash. In November 2010 a Global Air ”ight originating in Mexico City made an emergency landing in Puerto Vallarta because its front landing gear did not deploy. The “re was quickly extinguished, and none of the 104 people aboard were injured. That plane was a 737 “rst put into service in 1975. Mexican aviation authorities said a team of experts would ”y to Cuba on Saturday to take part in the investigation.Cuba: 3 survivors critical after plane crashBy ANDREA RODRIGUEZ and MICHAEL WEISSENSTEINASSOCIATED PRESS The few surviving passengers of an airliner that crashed arrive at the Calixto Garcia General Hospital in Havana, Cuba, Friday.

A Nebraska Humane Society worker rescued the squirrels from a pine tree in Omaha last week. Nebraska Wildlife Rehab executive director Laura Stastny told the Omaha World-Herald that the sap-covered tails became knotted as the youngsters wrestled in their nest. Stastny says they are about 8 weeks old. Resident Craig Luttman spotted the rodents predicament, describing it Thursday as kind of like a tug of war, going in completely opposite directions.Ž Stastny gave the squirrels a mild painkiller before removing the sticky fur and untangling them. She says some of them suffered injuries to their tails, but that she expects all six to be released in a few weeks.ODD NEWS 6 young squirrels rescued from tangled tails In this May 14, photo provided by Craig Luttman via the AP, the tails of six squirrels are stuck together by tree sap.FROM PAGE ONEa surprise as there was no indication during her public appearances in recent weeks, including during a state visit by Frances president, that Mrs. Trump had been ailing. One week before the procedure, a beaming Mrs. Trump, 48, presided over a splashy announcement ceremony in the White House Rose Garden to introduce her Be BestŽ public awareness campaign to help teach kindness to children. Grisham said Monday that the procedure was successful,Ž there were no complications and that Mrs. Trump would probably remain hospitalized for the duration of the week.Ž The president then tweeted Tuesday that his wife would be released in 2 or 3Ž days, but Thursday and Friday passed without word from the White House on her whereabouts. Trump had visited her during her “rst three days of hospitalization. But he did not visit Thursday or Friday, leading some to wonder whether that meant the “rst lady had been discharged. The “rst lady said Wednesday on Twitter that she was feeling greatŽ and looking forward to going home, but gave no indication of when that might happen. On Friday, she tweeted about the deadly school shooting at a Houstonarea high school but did not update her followers on her medical situation. Urologists with no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trumps condition said the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma. Theyre not common but tend to occur in middle-aged women and can cause problematic bleeding if they become large enough, said Dr. Keith Kowalczyk of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Doctors often treat the condition by cutting off the blood supply so the growth shrinks, added Dr. Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. That is done with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to “nd the right one to block. Most of the time, these tumors are found when people undergo medical scans for another reason, but sometimes people have pain or other symptoms, Kowalczyk said. Many times, embolization patients go home the same day or the next. Grisham on Saturday characterized speculation about the “rst lady as uninformed,Ž adding that every patient is different. Mrs. Trump has a medical team that is comfortable with her care, which is all that matters,Ž she said. Her recovery and privacy are paramount and I will have no further comment beyond this.Ž The question of what level of accountability should be expected of “rst ladies is dif“cult because they are private citizens, yet public “gures who draw keen interest from the public, have taxpayer-supported staff and sometimes involve themselves in politics and policy. Myra Gutin, a Rider University professor who studies presidents wives, recalled the backlash Rosalynn Carter suffered for attending Cabinet meetings; she explained that she just wanted to get things right because she was so often out and about representing President Jimmy Carter. The White House has a mixed record on disclosing information about the ailments of “rst ladies. Nancy Reagan revealed in 1987 that she had breast cancer and had her left breast surgically removed. But nearly two decades later, the White House found itself on the defensive for its after-thefact disclosure that Laura Bush had skin cancer removed from her right shin in November 2006. Mrs. Bush had decided it was a private matter, but it nonetheless came to light after she was seen wearing a bandage below her right knee. The following year, the White House proactively disclosed that Mrs. Bush would have surgery to relieve pain from pinched nerves in her neck. The problem kept her from accompanying President George W. Bush on a trip to Australia. Sheila Tate, a press secretary to Mrs. Reagan, said the “rst lady felt it was appropriate to reveal her breast cancer diagnosis. Such disclosures by a “rst lady arent absolutely required, by any means,Ž Tate said. Melania is entitled to her privacy, if thats what she wants.ŽFIRST LADYFROM PAGE 1 Three people were initially trapped, but eventually got out of a hazardous area; one was evacuated by air, said Janet Snyder, spokeswoman for Hawaii County. One Friday, four people were evacuated by county and National Guard helicopters. They shouldnt be in that area,Ž said County Managing Director Wil Okabe. He wants people to heed evacuation warnings. Edwin Montoya, who lives with his daughter on her farm near the site where lava crossed the road and cut off access, said the “ssure opened and grew quickly. It was just a little crack in the ground, with a little lava coming out,Ž he said. Now its a big crater that opened up where the small little crack in the ground was.Ž Experts are uncertain about when the volcano might calm down. The Big Island volcano released a small explosion at its summit just before midnight Friday, sending an ash cloud 10,000 feet into the sky. The USGSs Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said eruptions that create even minor amounts of ashfall could occur at any time. This follows the more explosive eruption Thursday, which emitted ash and rocks thousands of feet into the sky. No one was injured and there were no reports of damaged property. Scientists said the eruption was the most powerful in recent days, though it probably lasted only a few minutes. It came two weeks after the volcano began sending lava ”ows into neighborhoods 25 miles to the east of the summit. Several open “ssure vents are still producing lava splatter and ”ow in evacuated areas. Gas is also pouring from the vents, cloaking homes and trees in smoke. The fresher, hotter magma will allow faster lava ”ows that can potentially cover more area, said Janet Babb, a geologist with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Much of the lava that has emerged so far may have been underground for decades, perhaps since a 1955 eruption. Meanwhile, more explosive eruptions from the summit are possible. We have no way of knowing whether this is really the beginning or toward the end of this eruption,Ž said Tom Shea, a volcanologist at the University of Hawaii. Were kind of all right now in this world of uncertainty.Ž U.S. government scientists, however, are trying to pin down those signals so we have a little better warning,Ž said Wendy Stovall, a volcanologist with the observatory. The greatest ongoing hazard stems from the lava ”ows and the hot, toxic gases spewing from open “ssure vents close to homes and critical infrastructure, said Charles Mandeville of the U.S. Geological Surveys volcano hazards program. Authorities have been measuring gases, including sulfur dioxide, rising in little puffs from open vents. The area affected by lava and ash is small compared to the Big Island, which is about 4,000 square miles. Most of the island and the rest of the Hawaiian chain is unaffected by the volcanic activity on Kilauea. State and local of“cials have been reminding tourists that ”ights in and out of the entire state, including the Big Island, have not been impacted. Even on the Big Island, most tourist activities are still available and businesses are open.LAVAFROM PAGE 1leg.Ž She was treated at a hospital and spoke with a brown bandage wrapped around her wound. It was a very scary thing,Ž Quintanilla said. I was worried that I wasnt going to be able to make it back to my family.Ž In their “rst statement since Fridays massacre, Pagourtzis family said the bloodshed seems incompatible with the boy we love.Ž We are as shocked and confused as anyone else by these events,Ž said the statement, which offered prayers and condolences to the victims. Relatives said they remained mostly in the dark about the speci“csŽ of the attack and shared the publics hunger for answers.Ž Zach Wofford, a senior, said he was in his agricultural shop class when he heard gun“re from the art classroom across the hall. He said substitute teacher Chris West went into the hall to investigate and pulled a “re alarm. He saved many people today,Ž Wofford said of West. The mother of one slain student said her daughter may have been targeted because she rejected advances from Pagourtzi, who was an ex-boyfriend of her daughters best friend. Sadie Rodriguez said her 16-year-old daughter, Shana Fisher, repeatedly told him no, and he continued to get more aggressive.Ž The week before the shooting, Fisher stood up to himŽ by embarrassing him in class, Rodriguez said. The Houston branch of the FBI tweeted Saturday that 13 people were wounded in the attack, up from 10 previously. Hospitals reported treating 14 people with shooting-related injuries Friday, and the reason for the discrepancy still was not clear. In addition to a shotgun and a handgun, Pagourtzis also had several kinds of homemade explosive devices, but they were not capable of detonating, Henry said. Investigators found a group of carbon dioxide canisters taped together, and a pressure cooker with an alarm clock and nails inside. But the canisters had no detonation device, and the pressure cooker had no explosive material, Henry said. They were intended to look like IEDs, but they were totally non-functional,Ž Henry said, referring to the improvised explosive devices common in the early years of the U.S.-led war in Iraq. Authorities have offered no motive, but they said in a probable-cause af“davit that the suspect had admitted to carrying out the shooting. The gunman told police that when he opened “re, he avoided shooting students he liked so he could have his story told,Ž the af“davit said. From “rst word of the shooting, at 7:32 a.m. Friday, until con“rmation that the suspect was in custody, the attack lasted about half an hour. Dispatch records indicate that law enforcement “rst entered the building about seven minutes later after learning of the assault. The suspect was said to be in custody at 8:03 a.m. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the assailant got a handgun and shotgun from his father, who owned them legally. But it was not clear whether the father knew his son had taken them or if the father could face prosecution. State law makes it illegal to give a gun to anyone under 18, except under the supervision of an adult for hunting or sport shooting. Pagourtzis, who appeared to have no prior arrests or confrontations with law enforcement, made an initial court appearance on capital murder charges Friday. A judge denied bond and took his application for a court-appointed attorney. The shooting in Santa Fe, a city of 13,000 people about 30 miles southeast of Houston, was the nations deadliest such attack since the Parkland, Florida, massacre that killed 17 and energized the teen-led gun-control movement. It was also the deadliest assault in Texas since a man with a semi-automatic ri”e attacked a rural church late last year, killing more than two dozen people. Meanwhile, students were being let back inside Santa Fe High School to gather belongings they abandoned when the gun“re began. The schools roughly 1,400 students were to be allowed inside in groups of no more than 10 accompanied by of“cers, said Walter Braun, the school districts chief of police.GUNMANFROM PAGE 1 A student, left, reacts after retrieving her belongings inside Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas, on Saturday.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. in retirement, while the average 65-year-old woman will spend more (because women tend to live longer) „ $214,565. Worse, those averages dont even account for long-term care, which is something that 70 percent of seniors 65 and over are likely to need. According to Genworth Financials 2017 Cost of Care Survey, the average assisted living facility in the country costs $3,750 per month, or $45,000 on a yearly basis. The average nursing home, meanwhile, costs $235 per day, or $85,775 per year, and thats only for a semiprivate room. What should you do, given all that? Well, aim to save aggressively for retirement, investing your money effectively. Consider taking advantage of taxadvantaged accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s, too.

In addition to its namesake Pepsi line, the company boasts 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion apiece in annual revenue, including Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Tropicana, Quaker, Lays, Doritos and Cheetos. Currently, PepsiCo dishes out $0.805 per share quarterly, with its dividend recently yielding 3.25 percent. The company has increased its dividend annually for 45 consecutive years (through 2017), and further increases are likely. PepsiCos wide moat, featuring intangible assets, cost advantages and brand power, keeps competitors at bay. And it boasts strong relationships with distributors and retailers. One challenge facing PepsiCo is that consumer tastes in the U.S. are trending toward healthier products. In response, PepsiCo is adding healthier items to its lineup, such as Tropicana Essentials Probiotics, while promoting existing healthier options such as its juices and aiming to reduce the sodium content in its foods. Meanwhile, international demand for much of PepsiCos offerings is growing. PepsiCo is cutting costs by increasing automation, recently implementing robotic truck loaders at shipping centers and automating some packing processes. With a solid dividend and some underappreciated growth catalysts, PepsiCo is worth considering for your long-term portfolio. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentAn Unhealthy ScamMy dumbest investment was a company out of Bainbridge Island, Washington, many years ago. The marketing was brilliant, with a sign at Safeco Field, Shaquille ONeal wearing the company hat at an NBA championship celebration and more. It seemed to be a successful high-tech health business, aiming to combine fitness and health services under one roof. I toured the facilities, met staff and was impressed. I invested $10,000 in the company, but it turned out to be a scam. I cant recall managements names, but they should be getting out of prison soon. „ S.O., online The Fool Responds: You werent alone „ that was cited as the largest stock fraud case in Washington state history. Its easy to get excited about fascinating and promising businesses you run across, but you should aim to dig into them deeply before investing „ even more so when theyre small and/or young. Hearing managements rosy outlook isnt enough, and touring the premises isnt necessary. Look into the history and track record of management. Look into their books to see whether theyre turning their great ideas into profits. Look into current and possible future competitors, and weigh all risks facing the company. Even if you do all that, a company could still surprise you by imploding. Thus, its smart to protect your money by spreading it across a bunch of companies (or a simple and low-fee index fund) and not just a few. Watch That Watch ListQHow should I go about creating and using a stock watch list? „ M.S., Warren, OhioAStart by jotting down the names of companies you read or hear about that seem like promising investments. You could do so on paper, but maintaining a list online is easier. You can set up an online watch list or portfolioŽ full of stocks of interest at sites such as and others. You might pretend that you bought one or more shares of each at the stock price at which you first noticed the company.Meanwhile, research and follow the companies on your list and get to know them well. When youre ready to buy, youll be familiar with a bunch of companies and will have a sense of which are strongest, growing most briskly and priced attractively. Monitoring your list will also help you notice when a company of interest falls in price significantly, presenting a possibly great buying opportunity. When that happens, do further research to make sure any problems its facing seem temporary and not protracted.***QWhats window dressing,Ž financially speaking? „ T.D., Watertown, WisconsinAWindow dressing is a not-so-great practice employed by some mutual fund managers. Since fund managers have to report regularly on their funds holdings and they want to impress existing and potential shareholders, some will sell poor performers and replace them with popular stocks before the reporting period ends. That will make a good impression on someone reviewing their list of holdings as of the end of the quarter.You might avoid being taken in by window dressing by favoring funds with low turnover ratios, which reflect relatively infrequent trading activity.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email tos SchoolDont Let Health Care Costs Derail Your RetirementYou may be saving for retirement and assuming youll be fine, but theres a certain cost that many people underestimate or dont include in their retirement planning: health care. According to new data from the Nationwide Retirement Institute, health care costs are keeping roughly a quarter of current retirees from living the lives they expected. Furthermore, 80 percent said that health problems snuck up on them sooner than anticipated. Of course, theres no getting around the need to pay for health care in retirement, but you can do your part to ease the burden by knowing your costs in advance, buying the right insurance and saving for the bills that lie ahead. The amount you ultimately spend on medical care in retirement will depend on a number of factors „ primarily, your health.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I belong to a family that doesnt respond to RSVPs for weddings or wedding showers. They often arrive late, leave weddings early and sometimes dont stay to eat at the reception even when it has been catered at a cost of $100 a person. My adult children always ask me to call my siblings to check whether they are coming or not so some of their friends can be included if the family isnt coming. I just spoke with my brother about an upcoming wedding, and he informed me that he and his family mayŽ decide to extend their camping trip and miss it, even though they had RSVPd with their meal selections. My wife was raised to observe the rules of etiquette, something she has passed on to our four children, but my family never received that kind of instruction. I love my siblings and their families, and feel privileged whenever we get together to celebrate a wedding or special event. How can I improve the situation without hurting feelings and creating turmoil? „ FAMILY PEACEMAKER DEAR PEACEMAKER: Ill resist the urge to suggest you buy your relatives a book on etiquette. Start by explaining the rules to your siblings in a non-confrontational way. For instance, after you send an invitation, call and verify that the recipients plan to attend. If the answer is maybe,Ž tell them the meals cost $100 a plate, which is why its important to have an accurate head count. Because they dont know any better, I suppose its your responsibility to explain the rules of common courtesy to your family each time you invite them to join you for anything. When your brother told you he and his family might extend their camping trip, I hope you responded that you would be taking them o the guest list and hope theyll have a great time. DEAR ABBY: Im almost 20, in my second year of college, and I have never been in a relationship. Usually I shrug it o, but lately it has been really bothering me. I know Im not alone because a lot of my friends are in a similar situation. Im just afraid that Ill end up alone, or if I do ever nd someone, I wont know how to act. Please help. „ FRUSTRATED IN CLOVIS, CALIF. DEAR FRUSTRATED: Ill try, so bear with me. Please quit ogging yourself. Youre in college and on a path to success. To obsess about ending up alone is a distraction and a waste of time. Stop being afraid of what mightŽ happen. Enjoy your college experience. Meet as many people as you can and make friends. The more friends you have, the greater your chances of nding what youre looking for. As to not knowing how to act when you nally meet someone special, I guarantee that you will know how to act because you WONT BE ACTING. You will just be yourself, and that will be all you need.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Its important to keep them clean because bacteria can grow on a plastic or wooden board, particularly in the cracks of wood. So heres how to properly clean and disinfect your cutting boards. Plastic and wooden boards can be cleaned easily in hot, soapy water. To disinfect a cutting board, soak it for two minutes in a mixture of 2 tablespoons of bleach and 1 gallon of water. Always dry thoroughly. Never soak a wooden board for a long period or put it into the dishwasher. Store them upright. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I use a lot of lemons, limes and oranges, and I nd it hard to get all the juice out of them. How do I get more juice? „ Becky of Georgia Dear Becky: Here are several hints to make this task easier. First, let the fruit sit on the counter at room temperature. You also can place citrus fruit in a bowl of warm water or warm it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds. Then, roll the fruit on a hard surface with your hands before cutting. Using a juicer will help, too. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Laundry can be a time-consuming task, as we all know. Try these hints to get your family to help. Teach your children (and husband!) about laundry and taking care of their clothing, the products that are used and how the washer and dryer work (when they are old enough). Give each child a dierentcolored laundry basket to put in their rooms. When the basket is full, they should take it to the laundry room. Show them how to sort garments by color and wash them and how to fold clothing. „ Heloise Dear Readers: The most important thing to do after buying a large appliance is to make certain you get it properly installed by a professional. Save the manual and any instructional material that comes with it. Store the warranty or guarantee with the manual so you can nd it later. Locate a top-notch appliance repair service. If you lose the manuals, you still should be able to nd the information online. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I have several old parking decals that I need to remove from my car window.

Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 FROM PAGE ONEbathing the ancient stones of Windsor Castle in a beautiful spring light. Many in the throng who waited outside also embraced the trans-Atlantic symbolism of the moment. Sheraton Jones, 22, who is from California but studying in Britain, described it as a melding of cultures. It was very touching, its two different cultures kind of coming together, it was just so surreal,Ž she said. In the United States, this royal wedding was embraced for its diversity and inclusivity. This was black history,Ž said Joy Widgeon, who attended a house party in Burlington, New Jersey, with her 6and 8-year-old daughters. African-Americans were front and center at the royal wedding. This was the “rst time, and hopefully it wont be the last. I am here for it.Ž Harry also invited buddies from his 10 years of military service „ which included two tours of duty in Afghanistan „ and from many of the charities he supports, which have focused on helping wounded veterans and encouraging a more open discussion of mental health issues. To kick off the festivities, Queen Elizabeth II honored her red-headed, 33-year-old grandson with a new title: the Duke of Sussex, making the 36-year-old Markle the Duchess of Sussex. The American actress drew raves for her sleek white silk boat-necked dress by U.K. designer Clare Waight Keller of the French fashion house Givenchy. Her sheer veil „ down to her waist in front and billowing for what seemed like miles behind her „ carried ”oral references to all 53 countries in the Commonwealth, countries drawn mostly from the former British Empire, headed by Markles new grandmother-in-law, the queen. The dress is simply beautiful in its classic simplicity,Ž said Caroline Burstein, owner of Browns Bride, a top London bridal boutique. She called it a nod to Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and every iconic wedding we have witnessed throughout the 20th and 21st century. Its perfect for her and for the occasion they are celebrating.Ž The palace said Markle also selected two other plant designs to be on the veil: Wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace, where the royal couple will live, and the California poppy, in a nod to the brides birthplace. Harry and best man Prince William wore white gloves and the frock coat uniforms of the Blues and Royals army regiment, in which Harry was once an of“cer. Harry also kept his full red beard „ a style decision that had sparked British betting earlier. Markle at “rst walked down the aisle with 10 young page boys and bridesmaids, then was accompanied by Prince Charles to the altar. As his father and bride drew close, Harry said: Thank you, Pa.Ž To Markle, Harry said: You look amazing.Ž Markle seemed poised and con“dent as she delivered her vows without so much as a quiver in her voice. She smiled broadly as archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby declared the couple husband and wife. Harry seemed a bit nervous but happy. As they emerged from the chapel, the couple kissed „ and the crowd roared. It just kept on cheering as Harry helped his wife fold her 16-foot train into the Ascot Landau carriage as they began their procession through the streets of Windsor. Police said more than 100,000 people lined the route. The royal couples open-topped carriage was pulled by four Windsor Grey horses and past crowds waving ”ags and holding cellphones aloft. The newlyweds smiled and waved, smiled at each other, waved and repeated the process for the 25-minute tour of Windsor. Other relatives in the ceremony included 4-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, the oldest children of William and the Duchess of Cambridge. The 92-year-old queen and her 96-year-old husband, Prince Philip, Harrys grandparents, looked on with pride, as did Markles mother, Doria Ragland, who has spent the last few days getting to know her daughters new family. Two of Harrys ex-girlfriends were at the chapel „ Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas „ as was Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Harrys uncle, Prince Andrew. The queen hosted the “rst of two royal wedding receptions after the service Saturday, one in the afternoon for 600 people with “nger foods, wine and champagne. On Saturday night, a second, more lively reception for 200 people was being thrown by Charles. Yet it was the crowds in Windsor that seemed to best capture the joy of the moment. Many had camped or arrived at dawn on packed trains, vying for a good spot along the procession route. They cheered and screamed and sighed as the newlyweds passed by.WEDDINGFROM PAGE 1 UK POOL/SKY NEWS VIA APIn this frame from video, Britains Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand during their wedding ceremony at St. Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle in Windsor, near London, England, Saturday.

The rest of the hockey world is, too, as the newly minted Knights play Sunday with the most improbable prize of all at stake „ a chance to go to the Stanley Cup Final. The story is well known by now, or at least it should be. But the fantasy has never been so close to reality as it is now, with the Knights up 3-1 going into Sundays game against the Jets in Winnipeg. An expansion team born last October on the heels of the Las Vegas massacre that took 58 lives is on the brink of winning it all, confounding both hockey experts and expert bookies alike.

The Bucs averaged 3.7 yards per carry, tied for 27th in the NFL. I was disappointed in our mental approach to how we were going to run the ball.

The roar from the crowd was delayed, hushed by the thick fog that enveloped the track. When Justify emerged from the haze in view of the grandstand, trainer Bob Baffert could see jockey Mike Smiths white silks and knew his horse had been pushed to his limit with 100 yards left to go. I knew he was in for a fight,Ž Baffert said. I knew this was not going to be easy.Ž It wasnt easy, but Justify had enough left to hold off several hard-charging challengers and win the Preakness on a sloppy, slippery track Saturday and keep alive the chance for a second Triple Crown champion in four years.

By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA, „ Cedric Paquette scored in the opening minute and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 shots to help the Tampa Bay Lightning hold off the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Saturday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final. Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan also scored as the home team won for the first time in the best-of-seven matchup, with the Lightning taking a 3-2 series lead and moving within one victory of advancing the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in four seasons. The Capitals, in the conference final for the first time in the Alex Ovechkin era, have lost three straight after winning twice on the road to begin the series. Ovechkin scored with 1:36 remaining, trimming what once was a threegoal lead to one, however Vasiliveskiy made three more saves down the stretch to finish the victory. Game 6 is Monday night in Washington, where Tampa Bay has already won to improve to 5-1 on the road this postseason. The Capitals won the first two games on the road, scoring 10 goals on Vezina Trophy finalist Vasilevskiy and sending the Lightning „ won had the best record in the East during the regular season „ into desperation mode. Tampa Bay responded by winning Game 3 in Washington, evening the series despite being outshot and outplayed for sizeable stretches of a 4-2 victory in Game 4 and returning home, where coach Jon Cooper was confident the Lightning would be better than they were in the first two games. Turns out Cooper was right.

But it wasnt too long ago that some of the Rays were kids sitting in the stands watching the games, dreaming one day of getting that opportunity of being down on the field. The trip to Anaheim brought those memories back for five Rays who all grew up, and some still live, in the SoCal area and attended Angels games as kids. Here are a few of their stories:INF Daniel RobertsonAfter missing the chance last year since he was on the disabled list, Robertson was plenty motivated all winter to play in the stadium where he sat dozens of times a year with family and friends. He played some travel-ball games there, and once was in a group of kids who got to run out on the field for the national anthem, paired with Angels 1B Robb Quinlan, but this was different. In the offseason I drove by that field every day thinking one day this next season I might be playing there, he said. It definitely means a lot. One cool experience this week was using the visitors batting cage, where dugout-suite fans can watch, and he once met and got a photo with Josh Hamilton. A lot of memories for sure, he said.INF Matt Du yThough he spent parts of three seasons with the Giants, this was Duffys first official visit to Angel Stadium. His family had season tickets in Section 423, prime foul ball territoryŽ in Row 3 of the upper deck behind home, with a Jose Guillen-hit ball stashed away somewhere to show for it, and he once walked in a pregame youth league parade. My dad and I were talking about it the other night that with all the games we went to if somebody would have told him I would be here playing one day, he said he wouldnt have believed it, Duffy said.RHP Jake FariaWith his dad splitting Section 347 season tickets with another sheriffs deputy, Faria and older brother Matt came to 35-40 games a year as grade-schoolers, spending pregame chasing autographs, his most cherished possession a Vlad Guerrero-signed cap they still have. During high school, Faria would attend when he wasnt playing, including a datenight game with Jessica Soto that led to their first kiss, and now years later an upcoming wedding. MLB: RaysHow California dreamin became realit y Just getting through the Preakness was a test for the Kentucky Derby champion and heavy 2-5 favorite. When Smith looked over his shoulder early and saw Good Magic he thought, Oh man, its going to be a match race from this point on,Ž and Justify held up to the challenge down the backstretch and late as Bravazo and Tenfold chased him down. They tested his fitness today,Ž Smith said after his second Preakness win and first since 1993. This is his hardest race that hes had.Ž With Baffert praying for the wire at Pimlico, Justify won by a half-length after completing the race in 1:55.93. Bravazo edged Tenfold for third, and Good Magic was fourth. What I saw of it, I liked it a lot,Ž said veteran D. Wayne Lukas, who trains Bravazo. I want them to extend it another 50 yards. ... We ran at him. We kept him honest just like we said we would.Ž Good Magic pressed J ustif y so much, the Derb y runner-up faded near the end of the 1 ‡-mile race and fell out of the money for the first time in his career. It just wasnt a good trip,Ž Good Magic trainer Chad Brown said. I would have liked to see a different scenario, maybe where were just off the pace a little bit, we werent getting pressed on the fence the whole way. Disappointing.Ž That almost happened to Justify. Smith was worried when he saw Good Magic over his shoulder and when J ustif y sli pp ed earl y and he was hoping there was enough left to get to the wire. Baffert tied Lukas record with his 14th Triple Crown victory and matched 19th-century trainer R.W. Walden with his seventh Preakness title. Baffert also remained undefeated with Derby winners in the Preakness following Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah. Justify, who paid $2.80, $2.80 and $2.60 as the deserved favorite and improved to 5-0, showed more evidence of bein g the same kind of super horse as American Pharoah, and Baffert has repeatedly drawn comparisons between them. Those will only continue assuming Justify is good to go for the Belmont in three weeks. He has to come out of the race well, and hes got to be training really well,Ž Baffert said. I did the same thing with American Pharoah, all my horses that ran the Triple Crown, they have to be 100 percent.Ž Justify looked every bit of 100 percent after a bruised heel in the Derby caused q uite the firestorm. A bigger question now is how the lightly-raced colt who didnt run as a 2-year-old handles a mile and a half. Had the Preakness been just a tenth of a mile longer, Justify might have been caught, though Smith thought he had plenty of horse left. He withstood that, and even though he got tired today, he was also looking around a bit at the end,Ž Smith said. Although it was a half a length, I certainly couldve got after him a whole lot more a little earlier and made him do a little more, as well.ŽPREAKNESSFrom Page 1 just 19 seconds into the game. Palats second goal of the series made it 2-0. Tampa Bay extended the advantage to three goals when Callahan scored 33 seconds into the second period. Outshot 13-4 and limited to one scoring opportunity in the opening period, the Caps began to put some pressure on Vasilevskiy in the second. Evgeny Kuznetsov scored a goal in his fourth straight game, giving him a franchise single-year, playoffbest 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) and trimming Washingtons deficit to 3-1 at 4:21 of the period. The Capitals kept pressing in the third period, but didnt breakthrough against until Ovechkin scored his 11th goal this postseason. Notes: The road team won each of the first four games of a series for the sixth time in the last 10 years and 26th time in Stanley Cup playoffs history. Under that scenario, the road team has won Game 5 only three times. ... Paquettes goal was his first in the playoffs since Game 3 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, ending a 34-game drought for the 24-yearold center. ... At 19 seconds of the opening period, Palats goal was not the fastest to start a game in Lightning history. Adam Hall scored for Tampa Bay 13 seconds into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final against Boston in 2011. ... Capitals winger Andre Burakovsky was a game-time scratch.LIGHTNINGFrom Page 1 By TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ LeBron James had 27 points and 12 assists, Kevin Love added 14 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers looked like a different team on their home floor, tightening the Eastern Conference finals with a 116-86 victory in Game 3 over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night. Outplayed during two losses in Boston, the Cavs used a three-day break in the series to regroup and re-grip this series. They built a 19-point lead in the first quarter, pushed it to 30 in the second half and overpowered the Celtics, who fell to 1-5 on the road in the postseason. Any discussion of Clevelands demise is premature. Kyle Korver made four of the Cavs 17 3-pointers and Cleveland had six players in double figures. Game 4 is Monday night before the series returns to Boston. Jaylen Brown was in foul trouble all night and scored just 10 for the Celtics after averaging 23 in the first two games. Jayson Tatum scored 18 and Terry Rozier 13 for Boston. Only 19 of a possible 300 teams have ever overcome a 2-0 deficit in the playoffs. James and the Cavs, who previously did it in 2007 and again in 2016 while winning the NBA title, took the first step toward a third comeback. To return to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year, the Cavs have to win four of five and re-write Bostons illustrious history. The Celtics are 37-0 when they win the first two games in a series. That doesnt bother me,Ž Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said before Game 3. The games have to be played. They won two games on their home court, which we know theyve been playing well the whole playoffs, but were not discouraged. So, 0-2 doesnt really mean anything.Ž Apparently not. The Cavs came in wanting to play faster and be more physical with the younger Celtics, who were the aggressors in Games 1 and 2. Lue also needed more from point guard George Hill after two poor performances (8 points, 1 assist) in Boston. Hill responded with a driving layup to start the game and drained three 3-pointers in the first quarter as Cleveland wasted no time taking control. Hill finished with 13, J.R. Smith 11 and Clevelands supporting cast played so well that James only had to play 37 minutes. Boston coach Brad Stevens was confident his team would play better on the road than earlier in these playoffs, but the Celtics were shaky early, committing four turnovers and shooting 2 of 10 while the Cavs opened a 27-11 lead. James arrived at 5:45 p.m., greeted by the usual phalanx of cameras waiting to record his walk from the security entrance at Quicken Loans Arena to Clevelands locker room. Earlier in the day, James said the fact he has twice rallied from 2-0 deficits in the postseason offered no relief. Theres nothing about the playoffs thats comfortable until you either win it all or you lose and go into the summer,Ž he said.NBA: Cavaliers 116, Celtics 86LeBron, Cavs overpower CelticsAP PHOTOBoston Celtics Marcus Morris (13) goes for a rebound with Cleveland Cavaliers Jordan Clarkson (8), left, and LeBron James in the first half of Game 3, in Cleveland.


The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 SP Page 3for them,Ž Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck said. But its not going to stay that way.Ž Maybe not, partly because hockey is a notoriously fickle game. But in this gambling town the odds are suddenly in the houses favor. With the hope they dont have to play at home again until the Stanley Cup Final, the Knights trotted out some old Vegas mojo Friday night with Wayne Newton and the Blue Man Group making appearances to root the team on. The Backstreet Boys were there and rapper Lil Jon took the microphone to lead the cheers just before Reilly Smith punched in the go-ahead goal in the third period. And, of course, this being Las Vegas the guy doing the anthems was a singing gondolier whose day job is serenading tourists in the faux canals of Venice just across the street. Theres nothing fake about this team now one win from one of most improbable runs ever. Once 500-1 longshots to win the Stanley Cup in their first year, the Knights are now favored „ at least in the sports books „ to win it all. Its enough to make even Bark-Andre Fleury „ the lovable canine and goalie namesake who is now the unofficial team mascot „ to sit up and take notice. Its nice, but the last one is always the toughest to get,Ž the human Fleury said. I think we have to keep the same mind set and just go and take it one game at a time and not think too far ahead and be ready to play that next game because they are going to be coming hard.Ž That mentality has worked well for a team that began the season as an afterthought, a collection of unwanted players from other teams thrown together in hopes of winning a respectable number of games in their first year.KNIGHTSFrom Page 1 Associated PressHAMILTON, Ontario „ Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is heading to the Canadian Football League, looking to salvage his football career after a turbulent and unsuccessful stay with the Cleveland Browns. The quarterback signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and appeared at a news conference Saturday, ending months of speculation on his possible path back to the game. Made the decision today to sign my contract with the CFL and further my football career after a long break,Ž Manziel wrote on Twitter earlier in the day. Very grateful for everyone thats been supporting me along the way. I believe this is the best opportunity for me moving forward and Im eager for what the future holds.Ž His last game came at the end of the 2015 season. He now comes to a team coached by June Jones, a former NFL and college coach. Players report to training camp this weekend. In 2016, a domestic assault charge against Manziel in Dallas was dismissed after he took an anger management course and participated in the NFLs substance-abuse program. In a recent interview, he said hes been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has stopped drinking. The CFL has a policy on violence against women. The league said in a statement that in December it began a process to determine if Manziel could join the league. Manziel had to meet certain conditions, including an assessment by an independent expert on domestic violence, a review by legal counsel and a discussion with Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. The league said it informed Manziel and the Tiger-Cats it would approve his signing. He must, however, continue to meet the specified conditions to maintain his eligibility.Ž Manziel was drafted out of Texas A&M by the Browns in the first round in 2014. He threw as many interceptions (seven) as touchdown passes during his two seasons.FOOTBALL: CFLJohnny Manziel signs with CFL in path back to footballManziel By JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. „ One good beating per series is plenty for Draymond Green and Golden State. The Warriors got it in Game 2 at Houston, and now the defending champions plan to do what they seem to do best: bounce back with brilliance. As the Western Conference finals showdown shifts to Oracle Arena for Sundays Game 3, tied at one game apiece, the Warriors have spent the past few days discussing their Game 2 troubles and what theyre striving to do in order not to be dominated again. Its time to play. I think were at our best when we feel threatened,Ž Green said Saturday. Game 1 we felt threatened, we came out with a sense of urgency. Game 2 we maybe didnt feel as threatened and the sense of urgency wasnt there. I think youre allowed one of those a series. Weve had our one, now its time to lock in for the remainder of the series.Ž And for the Warriors that starts on the defensive end against Chris Paul, James Harden and Co., because when they get stops it allows Golden State to get going in transition and find open looks from 3-point range that werent there during a 127-105 Game 2 defeat Wednesday night at Houston. That was largely because the Rockets had ample time to set their defense following made baskets. Houston is making sure not to get too high from its impressive result. The Rockets lost Game 1, 119-106. Feels like Game 2 was a week ago now. Thats how it is in the playoffs,Ž Paul said. I heard somebody say when you lose a game in the playoffs, you feel like youre never going to win again, and when you win, you feel like youre never going to lose again. Weve done a great job all year staying even-keeled.ŽNBA: Western Conference Finals W arriors eager to get back on the court By W.G. RAMIREZAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ Just saying the Vegas Golden Knights are one win away from advancing to the Stanley Cup Final has a magical ring to it. But whats even more mystical is thinking the Knights are a mere five wins from hoisting Lord Stanleys Cup in its inaugural season. Five more wins, over a potential 10 games. And while this might be a first-year team writing a fantastical Hollywood screenplay nobody couldve scripted last summer when the roster was constructed, the NHL playoffs are nothing new to a core of characters in this cast. Everybody knows about three-time Stanley Cup champion Marc-Andre Fleury, a key figure during Pittsburghs reign the last two years, and 10-year veteran James Neal, who was with Nashville for last years run to the final against the Penguins. But between guys such as David Perron, Luca Sbisa, Deryk Engelland, Ryan Reaves, Reilly Smith, Cody Eakin and Tomas Tatar, the Golden Knights arent as new to the playoffs as people may believe. The players individual postseason pedigree could be part of the reason the team is one game from clinching the Western Conference. Another reason is the eagerness of Fleury and Neals co-stars in this feel-good story. We dont see ourselves as an expansion team for a long time now,Ž said Perron, a 13-year veteran who is playing in his seventh postseason. But at the same time, its always nice to keep proving people wrong and we know that even at this point, I dont feel like people believe well close it out. So, weve got to find a way.Ž Coach Gerard Gallant has shown he has confidence in all his players, as theyve all experienced pressure situations and performed well in all three round of the playoffs, including seven one-goal games. Not including Fleurys 129 career playoff games, or Neals 94, the players who skated in Friday nights 3-2 Game 4 victory now have a combined 489 games of postseason experience to their credit. Its not new for those guys, I dont think you get here if you dont use your hockey players,Ž Gallant said. Weve done it from Day One and theres no reason not to use them because everybody competes, everybody battles and everybodys a part of our team. Thats what we do. Guys work hard and compete hard and do your job and youll play. I feel comfortable putting most of our guys on the ice. Theres no issues there.Ž And thats because the Golden Knights have always done a good job of living in the moment, and not looking past each game. Erik Haula spent his first four seasons in Minnesota and went to the playoffs every year, but it didnt take long for him to realize he was with a special group of players. We got off to a great start, won two on the road (to open the season),Ž said Haula, who has three goals and four assists in the postseason. Right after that first home game, that was special. It was a special night for the whole community. Right there, I think we came together as a community, as a team. We never looked back. We just kept going.NHL: Western Conference FinalsVegas looks to continue fair y tale with conference titleAP PHOTOVegas Golden Knights left wing James Neal, left, celebrates the teams 3-2 win with Marc-Andre Fleury after Game 4 on Friday, in Las Vegas. By KAREL JANICEKAssociated PressCOPENHAGEN, Denmark „ Switzerland stunned title favorite Canada 3-2 to reach only its third final of the world ice hockey championship on Saturday. The Swiss will play the gold medal game on Sunday against defending champion Sweden, which strode into the final by crushing the United States 6-0. Canada and the U.S. will play for bronze. We obviously got motivated a lot playing them,Ž Switzerland defenseman Mirco Muller said. Theyre the best country in the world, hockey-wise, and they have a great team here. It was a great battle for us.Ž Canada goaltender Darcy Kuemper made some fine saves in the first period before Tristan Scherwey scored the go-ahead goal for Switzerland with 1:19 remaining in the first period. Bo Horvat tied it in the second but Switzerland proved resilient, and Gregory Hofmann restored the Swiss lead on a power play. Gaetan Haas struck again on a power play in the third, redirecting into the net a shot by Sven Andrighetto from the point. Colton Parayko blasted a slap shot past Swiss goaltender Leonardo Genoni to reduce the lead with 2:07 left in the final period as Canada pulled Kuemper for an extra attacker in vain. Switzerland played an unbelievable game,Ž Canada defenseman Aaron Ekblad said. From the drop of the puck they came at us hard in every facet.Ž Genoni stopped 43 shots. Its important that we win the last game,Ž Canada captain Connor McDavid said. Were up to do it.Ž Switzerlands best results have been runner-up in 1935 and 2013. Sweden is going for a third world title in six years, and 11th overall. Were the big underdogs (against Sweden),Ž Swiss forward Reto Schaeppi said. We have a chance if we play a really good game.Ž Sweden beat Switzerland 5-3 in the preliminary round. The Swedes set up their victory over the Americans with three goals in a 3:07 span midway through the second period. We didnt play our best game but we put up a lot of goals,Ž forward Patric Hornqvist said. We still have some improvement to do for the game tomorrow.Ž Viktor Arvidsson led Sweden with two goals and goalie Anders Nielsen made 41 saves for the shutout. Trailing 1-0 in the second, the U.S. had a four-minute power play but allowed a short-handed goal by Magnus Paajarvi, who scored on a rebound after goaltender Keith Kinkaid stopped Mikael Backlund on a breakaway. Hornqvist stretched the lead to 3-0 on a power play, and Sweden underlined its control when Mattias Janmark made it 4-0 just 11 seconds later. Arvidsson added his second into an empty net in the final period, and Adrian Kempe finished it off with the sixth. Sweden earned its ninth win from nine games in this championship. The U.S. pressured in the opening period, outshooting Sweden 16-8 and 41-19 overall. But it was the Swedes who went ahead. Arvidsson knocked in a loose puck in the crease following a shot from above the right circle by Filip Forsberg. U.S. captain Patrick Kane, the overall scoring leader, failed to register a point for the first time in the championship.WORLD ICE HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPSwiss stun Canada, Sweden crushes UShow we wanted to go about our business. And I thought that helped us. So we just had to shake it up a bit. It doesnt matter who plays. It really doesnt matter who is playing. Its just a matter of how you want to go about playing.Ž What exactly does Warhop mean by mental approach?Ž More finish,Ž Warhop said. More get on your guy. More sustained. Give our backs a better chance. So its just a little more grind.Ž Its actually a common theme this offseason. The Bucs rebuilt their defensive line for much the same reason. General manager Jason Licht has said he grew wearing of watching his team get pushed backward at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. So the Bucs did something about it. They added Ravens center Ryan Jensen, moving Ali Marpet from center to left guard. They also used a thirdround pick on Humboldt State offensive lineman Alex Cappa. Both players have a well-earned reputation to finishing blocks and playing well past the echo of the whistle. Listen, you can slice that any way you want about ƒ guys who chew glass and all that,Ž Warhop said. It comes down to this: youre either going to be competitive or youre not. Thats it. Theres all kinds of guys, whether you playing O-line, D-line, receiver, running back that play the game. It comes down to, Am I going to be a competitive guy or not? If youre not going to be competitive, youre not going to survive. ƒ So when were adding guys, were using the same criteria. One, can they play? Are they better than the guys we have? No. 2, can they compete with the guys we have? No. 3, they have the characteristics were looking for. The guys we added are checking most of those boxes.ŽBUCSFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP Sunday, May 20, 2018 / The Sun 9001 Daniels Pkwy, Suite 202 Fort Myers, FL 33912Southwest Florida Medical 887-3602Individual results may vary. All rights reserved. The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatmentŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.Ž The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works: As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections. Paid AdvertisementSay Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction adno=50537076mobile phones. Theres particular alarm over the anticipated explosion of so-called in-game wageringŽ in which gamblers bet, often at a rapid pace, on play-byplay developments „ for example, will the next football play be a run or a pass. You lose track of time,Ž said Les Bernal, national director of Stop Predatory Gambling The goal of the operators is to get you into a zone where you lose your financial reasoning and think of nothing except betting.Ž Prior to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling this week, only four states were allowed to offer sports betting and only Nevada offered betting on single games. Now that the court has lifted those bans, there are expectations that most states will offer sports betting within a few years in a play to raise tax revenue. We think this is the biggest expansion of gambling in our nations history, in one fell swoop,Ž said Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling Absolutely, categorically, there will be more risk factors for addiction „ weve never had that much high-speed, highstakes interactive access to any sort of betting.Ž The council wants any company, sports league or government that benefits from sports betting to devote at least 1 percent of the revenue to fund programs preventing and treating compulsive gambling. It also wants betting operators to train staff about problem gambling, set and enforce a minimum age limit, and enable gamblers to set limits on how much time and money they spend betting. Whyte is skeptical that state lawmakers and the gambling industry „ even if they pay lip service to problem gambling „ will take sufficiently tough action.BETTINGFrom Page 1 By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ IndyCars marquee names turned a day of qualifying for the Greatest Spectacle in RacingŽ into a throwback, nail-biting, bumping affair. Helio Castroneves, seeking a redemptive record-tying fourth victory, was fastest around Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Danica Patrick was fast, too, and she averaged 227.610 mph to snag the ninth and final spot in the next round of qualifying, the Fast Nine. But this was a full field for the first time in years, and it meant two drivers werent making next Sundays show. Never did the renewed bumping expect to be a threat to James Hinchcliffe, one of IndyCars top drivers, a popular Canadian, and a celebrity from his stint as runnerup on ABCs Dancing With the StarsŽ show. Add in this is the final Indy 500 on ABC, ending a partnership that started in 1965 and is second in sports only to CBS and the Masters. The network has been a strong partner for tiny IndyCar, and it helped turn Hinchcliffe and Castroneves into crossover stars. And no one expected trouble for Pippa Mann, a perennial presence in the Indy 500. The British driver spends her entire year working to raise the money to run the Indy 500. Yet after a day of bumping, it was Hinchcliffe and Mann who were surprisingly sidelined. It was devastating in every way possible,Ž said Hinchcliffe, who is fifth in the IndyCar standings and a full-time series racer for an anchor team. We came here with big expectations and high hopes. We didnt have Fast Nine speed but we didnt think wed miss the race. Its Indy and we finally have bumping again and everyone was thrilled about it. Well, Im a lot less thrilled about it.Ž Hinchcliffe nearly lost his life at Indy in a 2015 crash in which he was pierced in an artery and would have bled to death if not for IndyCars standard-setting medical staff. He missed the race that year, but otherwise is a staple of the series. Mann is a one-off. Without her in the field, the Indy 500 will have just one woman, Patrick, at the time her return to American open wheels crown jewel event is being celebrated. Patrick is retiring after this Indy 500, her first since 2011 because of a brief and unsuccessful move to NASCAR. Back for the second leg of a farewell in The Danica DoubleŽ shes bookended Indy with the Daytona 500 on a two-race goodbye tour. Theres a chance IndyCar could intervene. The standard is 33 cars, but the Indy 500 is the only race that matters to the IndyCar elite and it had a 35 car field in 1997. So the hand-wringing could be real as purists wonder if Tony George, head of the family that owns all things-Indy, can force an exception to get Hinchcliffe and Mann in the field. Should they just start everyone? To me, Im definitely a traditionalist,Ž said Ed Carpenter, son of George and the owner of Patricks car. As tough as it is to watch a guy like Hinch, who has had great moments here, really tough moments, I feel for him, I feel for Pippa. Weve all worked very hard to be here. I really feel for them. At the same time, Indianapolis, thats part of the lure of what makes this race so special and important to all of us. Growing up around this event, seeing years where Team Penske struggled and missed the race, Bobby Rahal missed the race one year, its happened to great teams.ŽAUTO RACING: Indy 500Helio, Danica move on; Hinchcli e is bumpedAP PHOTODanica Patrick is hugged by Patrick Bourdais after she qualified for the IndyCar Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Saturday. By ANDREW DAMPFAP Sports WriterROME „ The latest installment in the rivalry between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic met expectations for one tight set. Then Nadal pulled away for a 7-6 (4), 6-3 win to reach the Italian Open final on Saturday. In their 51st meeting but first in more than a year, Nadals court coverage eventually proved too much to handle for Djokovic, who is still regaining his form from a persistent right elbow injury. That was a tough battle, a good level of tennis, a combination of good tactics and great shots from both of us,Ž said Nadal, who has had injury trouble of his own over the past year. Nadals opponent in Sundays final will be defending champion Alexander Zverev, who recovered from an early break in the second set to beat Marin Cilic 7-6 (13), 6-4. Zverev destroyed his racket near the end of the tiebreak in which he saved five set points. The German player is aiming for his third title in three weeks after lifting trophies in Munich and Madrid „ but he hasnt beaten Nadal in four tries. On this surface (Nadal) is almost unbeatable,Ž Zverev said. Ill have to play my best.Ž If Nadal wins his record-extending eighth Rome title, he will replace Roger Federer at No. 1. Federer is sitting out the clay season to prepare for Wimbledon. On the womens side, top-ranked Simona Halep rallied past threetime Rome champion Maria Sharapova 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 and will again face Elina Svitolina for the trophy.
