As hurricane season nears,local emergency managersPREPARE FOR WORST A year after one of the most active hurricane seasons on record, this yearÂs Atlantic storm season is expected to be near to slightly above average this year. But that doesnÂt mean anything to local emergency managers. TheyÂre preparing for the worst nonetheless. Although tropical weather has already sprung up in recent days, the hurricane season ofÂ“cially starts Friday and runs through Nov. 30 with the typical peak on Sept. 10 Â„ the same day Irma slammed Florida last year. Colorado State University researchers predicted 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes in their seasonal forecast, above the norm. ThatÂs because they donÂt anticipate the development of an El Nino, which would cause wind shear, making it harder for hurricanes to develop. The Weather Company, an IBM business, puts it at 13 named storms including six hurricanes. However, the CSU report also calls for a 39 percent chance of a major hurricane landing on the U.S. East Coast. ÂOne of the key points we tell people regardless of whether itÂs an active season or not, it only takes one hurricane and that can hit us any year,ÂŽ National Weather Service Meteorologist Dustin Norman said. Â(Hurricane) Andrew is a good example of that. When that struck (in 1992) that was a very inactive hurricane season; yet it kind of sticks out as one of the hallmark hurricane years.ÂŽBy SOMMER BROKAWSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTOCategory 4 Hurricane Charley destroyed six schools in Charlotte County, including: the Baker Center, Peace River Elementary, Neil Armstrong Elementary, East Elementary, Punta Gorda Middle, and C harlotte High.

ÂParticipation at this event is in direct support of the Economic Development OfficeÂs mission to recruit companies in the high value, targeted industries of aviation and aerospace,ÂŽ said the countyÂs Economic Development Director Lucienne Pears in a memo to county commissioners on the Farnborough International Air Show. This week, PearsÂ request for a budget to attend the event amounting to $5,450 was unanimously approved by county commissioners from the General Fund. The sum includes airfare, ground transportation, hotel, per diem expenses along with ticket and booth costs. Aviation has become a target industry in the county, with the Charlotte County Economic Development OfÂ“ceÂs slogan reading: ÂYour business. Cleared for takeoff.ÂŽ Punta Gorda Airport recently underwent a multi-million dollar expansion. Western Michigan University since last year has been offering pilot training and aviation maintenance technology programs that lead to a bachelorÂs degree. And Sunseeker Resorts is planned to be built along Charlotte Harbor waterfront through Allegiant Travel Company Â„ as trafÂ“c from the airline into Punta Gorda Airport has grown year-over-year.CharlotteÂs economic development director Âcleared for takeoffBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITERDIRECTOR | 10Thanks to all those who wrote in response to my column comparing this President and President Jimmy Carter. We are lucky to have the best newspaper readers in America. I am often asked by readers what I think of President Trump. My usual response is it is too early to tell. History will be the judge. The Â“rst President Bush was mocked and kicked out of ofÂ“ce. President George H.W. Bush looks better all the time. If you still donÂt like the Â“rst Bush, I encourage you to read Jon MeachamÂs excellent book, ÂDestiny and Power.ÂŽ If you donÂt like President Bush a bit more after reading MeachamÂs book, let me know, and IÂll pay for your copy. How do we have a conversation when we disagree about politics? I thought Michelle WolfÂs remarks at the White House CorrespondentsÂ Dinner were mean and personal Â„ not funny. I wish reader TB had been the host. He rewrote Jimmy CarterÂs speech I quoted in my column, the way TB imagined President Trump would have delivered it. IÂll print just the Â“rst paragraph. ÂI want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy Â„ CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. 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 Trouble draining the nationÂs swampDAVID | 10 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENT PEARSCALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2 0 1 6 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 126 | NO. 147AMERICAÂS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY Wind and rainHigh 82 Low 75$3.00 www.yoursun.comTodayÂs weather: GOOD MORNING Sunday, May 27, 2018 INSIDE TODAY: A LOOK AT LOCAL HISTORY Â„ 1930-1940 During the economically depressed 1930s, A.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSNORTH PORT Â„ Two new roads are underway in West Villages as the area prepares for more traffic and the Atlanta Braves. Along U.S. 41 near the entrance to IslandWalk and Gran Paradiso, construction is underway on Preto Boulevard which Â„ when finished Â„ will provide another entrance to the new Spring Training facility for the Braves. Work on the Braves stadium continues and should be completed in less than a year. Preto will run into a portion of West Villages Parkway which Â„ near the ballpark Â„ is also undergoing changes. That segment is being renamed Playmore and will run from a back entrance of IslandWalk and, eventually, all the way to River Road. ÂNow that we have the stadium, that has triggered the need to start Preto,ÂŽ West Villages marketing manager Sondra Guffey said. ÂIt will be complete by the time the stadium opens.ÂŽ Work on Preto Â„ which is Portuguese for black Â„ began in earnest about six weeks ago. However, the road has been considered for years, she said. ÂEven before the stadium, it was on the map,ÂŽ Guffey said. Preto will be a secondary road into the stadium to help alleviate congestion. ÂIt will eventually be landscaped nicely like West Villages Parkway,ÂŽ Guffey said. ÂBut when thereÂs not a game, this will not be a very heavily trafficked road, so itÂll be nice for walks and bike rides.ÂŽ And while Playmore sounds like a name picked by a marketing team for a road outside a stadium, itÂs just a happy coincidence. ÂIt was meant to be,ÂŽ Guffey said, noting the way it worked out. ÂPlaymore is an extension of a road already in existence on the other side of River Road... The name is perfect for where we are.ÂŽ In the future, Playmore will likely extend all the way to River Road to run into the other portion of it. Guffey said while people are curious about the progress of the stadium, work on that along with the continuing and new work on the roads makes it Ârather dangerousÂŽ right now. But with mounds of dirt being moved right off U.S. 41 along with more clearing for other projects, people are starting to notice the changes in West Villages. ÂItÂs definitely more visible. ItÂs showing people that weÂre doing what we said weÂd be doing; weÂre making progress,ÂŽ Guffey said.More and more roads under construction in West VillagesBy SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT SUN EDITOR IMAGE PROVIDEDA map shows the new roads under construction or reconstruction in West Villages, including Playmore Road and Preto Boulevard.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 Local emergency managers say they have to be ready for the worst regardless. ÂEvery season is different. Every storm is different,ÂŽ said Sarasota County Emergency Management Chief Ed McCrane. ÂWe just need to be prepared and plan for the worst.ÂŽ Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Jerry Mallet agrees. ÂWe prepare the same way every year like weÂre going to have one (hurricane landfall),ÂŽ Mallet said. McCrane said that residents need to prepare early for the hurricane season and not become complacent. ÂWe got very, very lucky with Irma. Irma was kind to us compared to what she did to other areas,ÂŽ McCrane said. ÂYou want to prepare now. You donÂt want to wait until you turn on the news and thereÂs a hurricane, and itÂs in the Gulf and you go to the Publix and thereÂs no water.ÂŽ Lessons learned from IrmaBoth agencies have reÂ“ned their disaster preparedness plans since Irma. ÂOur goal is to improve,ÂŽ McCrane said. ÂWe learned a lot about the public and how they respond, how they want information, how they understand our information, so we wanted to adjust it to better explain what they need to do.ÂŽ Among the changes, is a new transportation plan to assist Sarasota County residents with getting to an evacuation center when an emergency weather alert has been activated if they are unable to drive themselves. Residents must preregister for the new program through an online registration form on the governmentÂs emergency management website at scgov.net/government/emergency-services/ emergency-medical-services. McCrane added that based on the Irma After Action Review, terms like mandatory evacuation and voluntary evacuations are gone, simpliÂ“ed to just evacuations. Also, all 11 schools used as shelters will be opened at one time during a hurricane watch. ÂIn the past, we would open these up four at a time as needed, and we determined during Irma that caused some confusion,ÂŽ he said. In Charlotte County, schools listed as places of refuge from the storm have been revised this year. ÂWe used to list all of our schools,ÂŽ Mallet said. ÂNow, weÂre going to list only schools weÂll use for shelter, which brings it down to just a few schools.ÂŽ Mallet said reviewing Charlotte CountyÂs Emergency Management website, www. charlottecountyÂ”.gov/services/ emergencymgmt/Pages/ default.aspx is a good tool to prepare. The site names Port Charlotte Middle and Kingsway and Liberty elementaries as refuges of last resort, noting these may not open depending on the size and direction of the storm and that the county has no certiÂ“ed Red Cross shelters.Proposed hurricane research cuts Earlier this month, a study of Hurricane Harvey concluded that record-breaking ocean heat fueled last yearÂs devastating tropical cyclone, according to the EOS publication. In August 2017, the Gulf of MexicoÂs waters were hotter than any time on record. ÂAs climate change continues to heat the oceans, we can expect more supercharged storms like Harvey,ÂŽ said lead author Kevin Trenberth, a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projections estimate global warming will cause hurricanes globally to be 2 to 11 percent more intense on average by the end of the 21st century. At the same time, President Donald Trump, who says climate change is a Chinese hoax, plans to hack the budget for federal climate research funding 37 percent Â„ from $158 million in 2017 to $98 million in 2019. The Miami Herald also reported that heÂs pushing to slash an additional $100 million from ocean, coastal and Great Lakes research that Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo said are ÂsigniÂ“cant reductions to agencies needed to protect our environment and combat the threats of climate change and sea level rise.ÂŽ The Âbudget proposal from the Administration is certainly not reÂ”ective of the direction our federal government should take,ÂŽ Curbelo said. ÂThis budget abandons progress already made on many programs that enjoy bipartisan support.ÂŽ Regardless of climate changeÂs role, Emily Porter, a Florida SouthWestern State College environmental science professor, said the cuts would be a step backward. ÂThat probably would be the wrong move because we need more information, not less information,ÂŽ Porter said. Data is needed to prepare for storms, like Irma, and get to the bottom of the undetermined factors in such hurricanes, which canÂt be pegged on climate change or other role-playing components without more research, she said. ÂWe canÂt point to Irma and say that was due to climate change,ÂŽ Porter said. ÂItÂs really premature to conclude that human activity and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that causes global warming have a detectable impact on the Atlantic hurricane activity.ÂŽ She deÂ“ned detectable as Âchanges that are large enough to be clearly distinguishable from the variability due to natural causes.ÂŽ However, Âhuman activities may have already caused changes that are not yet detectable,ÂŽ she added.

Hurricane Irma, which reached speeds of 180 mph over the Caribbean, killed 44 people and accounted for a large number of indirect deaths including 12 who died at a sweltering Hollywood nursing home. It also left most of the state without power. Harvey caused catastrophic Â”ooding in Texas, and MariaÂs 175mph winds brought mass devastation and death when it struck the eastern Caribbean and Puerto Rico, which is still struggling to recover. Tropical weather season is unpredictable. It makes sense to prepare before a storm hits to avoid long lines and scarce supplies.

Storm surge is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. It poses a significant threat for drowning. A mere 6 inches of fast-moving floodwater can knock over an adult. It takes only 2 feet of rushing water to carry away most vehicles Â„ including pickups and SUVs. 2. Storm surge can cause water levels to rise quickly and flood large areas Â„ sometimes in just minutes, and you could be left with no time to take action if you havenÂt already evacuated as instructed. 3. Storm surge values do not correspond well to the hurricane wind categories (of the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) that range from 1 to 5. These categories are based only on winds and do not account for storm surge. 4. Tropical storms, Category 1 or 2hurricanes, major (Category 3 to 5) hurricanes, and post-tropical cyclones can all cause life-threatening storm surge. 5. Southwest Florida is vulnerable to storm surge, including areas up to several miles inland from the coastline. 6. Storm surge can occur before, during, or after the center of a storm passes through an area. Storm surge can sometimes cut off evacuation routes, so do not delay leaving if an evacuation is ordered for your area. 7. During the peak of a storm surge event, it is unlikely that emergency responders will be able to reach you if you are in danger.

The ancient peoples of the Caribbean and Central America blamed hurricanes on a variety of violent gods and goddesses. Modern Floridians cling to their own hurricane myths; misconceptions that may be less colorful but are often more dangerous. Here are some common beliefs about hurricanes that arenÂt true, courtesy of Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center; Bill Johnson, emergency management director for Palm Beach County; and Phil Klotzbach, research scientist in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Taping windows will help protect your house: A waste of time (and tape). If the window breaks in the storm, the tape will help produce large, dangerous shards Â”ying into your house, which is not desirable. Use plywood or hurricane shutters. You should open a window on the downwind side of the storm: A great idea if you want to get water and debris blown into your house. Otherwise, it doesnÂt accomplish anything. Many people think they need to open a window to allow pressure to equalize. But thatÂs a solution in search of a problem. No house is airtight, no matter how hard we try to eliminate every air gap, so you donÂt have to worry about equalizing pressure. The most dangerous element of the storm is wind: For all the focus on wind speeds and hurricane categories, the real killer is water. Storm surge, the temporary rise in sea level caused by the stormÂs winds, causes more fatalities than any other part of the storm. A study of tropical storms and hurricanes from 1963 to 2012 by Edward Rappaport, deputy director of the National Hurricane Center, found that 49 percent of deaths were caused by storm surge, 27 percent by rain and 6 percent by surf. Wind accounted for 8 percent of deaths and tornadoes for 3 percent. Once a hurricane has passed, the danger is over: A very dangerous misconception, as shown by the deaths of 12 people in a Hollywood nursing home after Hurricane Irma knocked out power. After a storm, people die from downed power lines, heat from loss of power, Â”ooding and falls off ladders as they make repairs. Disaster brings out the worst in people: Many people believe a loss of electric power, regular access to grocery stores and other basic elements of modern life will lead to a war of all against all, in which life is nasty, brutish and sweaty. Johnson says this misconception becomes dangerous when people decide not to evacuate, or take risks by returning home too soon, for fear of leaving their homes vulnerable to looting, which is rarer than people think. Setting up a family disaster kit is a time-consuming pain, requiring multiple shopping trips (so why bother?): Most people could scrounge up three daysÂ of non-perishable food, such as peanut butter and canned goods, around the house. The same with other necessities, such as garbage bags, Â”ashlights, batteries and blankets. ItÂs just a question of gathering it all up. The only area at risk is the coast: Damaging wind, heavy rain and Â”ooding can occur hundreds of miles inland, says Feltgen. Hurricane Harvey, for example, caused catastrophic Â”ooding in 2017 far inland in Texas. A below-average season means I wonÂt get hit: Two words: Hurricane Andrew. Andrew brought historic devastation to South Florida during what was otherwise a pretty quiet hurricane season. Other catastrophic storms that struck in low-activity seasons, according to Feltgen, include Hurricane Donna, a 1960 storm that struck the Keys with 140 mph winds, and Hurricane Betsy, a 1965 storm that brought disastrous Â”ooding to New Orleans. I got hit last year, so I wonÂt get hit this year: The cards have no memory, and neither do hurricane seasons.HURRICANE MYTHS: What you should not believeBy DAVID FLESHLERSUN-SENTINEL The rapid intensiÂ“cation of hurricanes, a fearful development that forecasters still struggle to predict, may be tied to an inner battle between a stormÂs thunderstorms and winds. Forecasters typically look at outside environmental conditions Â„ ocean temperatures, moisture in the atmosphere and the Â”ow of upper level winds Â„ to model a hurricaneÂs potential power. Hurricanes in favorable conditions predictably intensify. But sometimes, like Harvey, Irma and Maria did last year, they mutate abruptly, becoming even more dangerous with little warning. In a recent paper published in the Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, scientists now say a look inside the storm might provide forecasters with valuable warning signs. After examining models from a 2014 hurricane that rapidly intensiÂ“ed, they found that interior thunderstorms were able to overcome the power of upper level winds that held them in place. As the thunderstorms begin swirling around the stormÂs center, they appeared to increase the stormÂs circulation, make the hurricane more symmetrical and lessen its tilt, allowing it to spin more furiously. ÂIÂm not trying to downplay the role of shear because itÂs very important. If you have very large shear, you wonÂt have an (intense) hurricane,ÂŽ said Hua Leighton, the studyÂs lead author and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientist at the University of MiamiÂs Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies. ÂBut when shear is in the middle range, then the distribution of the wind relative to the storm becomes very important.ÂŽ In recent years, National Hurricane Center forecasters have dramatically improved track predictions. Tracks are 30 to 40 percent more accurate than they were just two decades ago. But gains in intensity have been smaller, with the average error at 72 to 120 hours out still off by one category. Forecasters say thatÂs due to the complexity of balancing broader environmental conditions within the narrower confines of the stormÂs structure, and they warn u ltimately they will reach the limits of predictability. Forecasting rapid intensiÂ“cation, when wind speeds increase by at least 35 mph in 24 hours, is even more difÂ“cult. Hurricanes are basically coils spun out of tropical water and air. When upper level winds push against the counterclockwise spin of systems that form in the Northern Hemisphere, they can help smother storms. The opposite is true when winds Â”ow in the same direction. WhatÂs not clear is why a storm facing moderate wind shear can intensify quickly, a change that can dramatically increase risks to the public. For this study, researchers used predictions made by NOAAÂs Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast model for Edouard, the 2014 storm that developed off the coast of Africa as a tropical depression and rapidly intensified to Category 3 strength. Model runs that accurately predicted a rapid intensification showed thunderstorms normally anchored by upper level winds swept up in the hurricaneÂs spin. Leighton said it appeared the thunderstorms were able to outmuscle the power of the winds. ÂYou have the strength of the storm and the strength of the inner core. ItÂs a battle,ÂŽ she said. It may not be possible to predict which will win, but once the thunderstorms start circulating, they appear to set the stage for the other conditions. Before the information can be developed into a potential forecast tool, Leighton said scientists need to do more case studies to conÂ“rm their Â“ndings and rule out other inÂ”uences. Models that factor environmental assumptions, and not real-life conditions, also remain an obstacle, she said. ÂEven if we understand the process, itÂs not like weÂre going to have a perfect forecast beca use we still rely on a model,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs a long way to go for the forecast improvement.ÂŽResearchers find a key clue to why some hurricanes intensify rapidlyBy JENNY STALETOVICHMIAMI HERALD LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS adno=54535560 Another Reason to Choose Our Crematory...Â It is unwise to pay too much, but it Â s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money that Â s all. When you pay too little, sometimes you lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the job it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot it canÂt be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and, if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to firstname.lastname@example.orgPublisher Â„ Glen Nickerson Executive editor Â„ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor Â„ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor Â„ John Hackworth V IEWPOINTWhat solutions to mass shootings? Situation normal: Nature destroyed NRA provides training course Walk against, cycle with tracEditor: It has become all too common, when a mass shooting occurs, like recently in Santa Fe, we get outraged, ask for prayers, and turn to our leaders to for answers. HereÂs what we have gotten from our president: ÂEveryone must work together at every level of government to keep our children safe. May God heal the injured and may God comfort the wounded.ÂŽ Prayers and words only. Then, after the Parkland shooting Feb. 22, the very same president sat with survivors in the White House to discuss ideas how to protect our school children from gun violence, and said, ÂAgain, thank you for your ideas. Thank you for your thoughts. Thank you for pouring out your hearts, because the world is watching. And weÂre going to come up with a solution.ÂŽ Again, words. No actions taken. They can do something, but they donÂt. When a dog died on a Â”ight because he was forced into an overhead bin, Sen. John Kennedy announced, ÂI will be Â“ling a bill tomorrow that will prohibit airlines from putting animals in overhead bins. Violators will face signiÂ“cant Â“nes. Pets are family.ÂŽ Two days later the bill program is the security assessor training which seeks to facilitate a partnership between schools and local stakeholders by teaching them how to analyze a schoolÂs physical security, communications systems and overall preparedness. Since the Â“rst NSS Security Assessor Training was held in 2015, 16 additional training courses have been completed in 11 states. Perhaps it would be worthwhile for local school districts to look into this valuable service which is available from the NRA.John Sproat Englewoodof a few. But the trees will not return, the wildlife will be declared Âa nuisanceÂŽ and caged or destroyed. Where llamas grazed street lamps will replace the moon. So why raise our voices over the destruction of six acres, or 600 or 6,000? The Overbrook Substation is a microcosm, but it is one on which the developers rely. It is too late to question the Sarasota County Commission on why they are so eager to eradicate the landscape and its inhabitants. But it must end, or the ending will be disastrous.Richard Brobst Englewoodhad been Â“led. Wait a minute, these dead children are our family, too. Where are your priorities? Our government wonÂt Â“x the problem, because they are the problem. They have been paid to allow guns to Â”ow freely, unfettered throughout the country to any and all that wish to have a gun. So, Mr. President, where are those solutions you said you talked about? John R. Munn EnglewoodEditor: So six acres of wetlands, scrub palms and grand oaks is being destroyed to make room for concrete, steel, highvoltage power lines. So more animals are being driven out of their burrows, from their sanctuaries, across the highway? So rain now pools on cement while the wetlands die? Mounds of ground oak Â„ live, white, water Â„ stumps smolder beneath the heavy sky. The county calls this progress. Thousands of new homes will follow. Soon we will be all pavement Â„ a bracelet of developments stretching from Sarasota to Naples. ÂJust build them higher, boys Âƒ the tide will be coming in.ÂŽ Progress goes into the pockets Editor: From the Âpolitical cartoonÂŽ in WednesdayÂs paper it is quite evident that the anti-NRA bias continues unabated. It is sad that so little research is done anymore by the media, otherwise perhaps they would have come across the NRAÂs National School Shield program which was established in 2012. The National School Shield (NSS) provides expertise in many facets of school security by educating community, law enforcement and school leaders on best practices in security infrastructure, technology, personnel, training and policy. A cornerstone of the NSS Editor: I just read the article on bicycle and pedestrian safety. The sentence that pedestrians Â”ow with trafÂ“c and bicycles against is wrong and dangerous. I looked it up to be sure. Walking, you face trafÂ“c so that you are aware of vehiclesÂ movements. Riding a bike, you Â”ow with trafÂ“c and obey all trafÂ“c rules. I just yesterday came upon a bicyclist on Kings Highway going toward trafÂ“c, riding left, and it is extremely dangerous if there is trafÂ“c because even if the car stops the bike can hit it. Please print a correction.Candace Lawless ArcadiaSticker shock greets potential Springs rentersOUR POSITION: While the new Springs apartment complex will add to a puny inventory, it wonÂt do much to provide relief for those seeking workforce housing in Charlotte County.We feel Â”im-Â”ammed. Anyone holding out hope for economical housing at the new Springs at Port Charlotte complex, currently going up near the Peachland/Veterans Boulevard intersection, has to be disappointed. We are more than disappointed. When developers pitched the apartment complex almost a year ago, they were painting a picture of workforce housing. They talked about relief for the lack of housing for teachers, Â“rst responders Â„ those making in the $30,000 to $40,000 salary range. They mentioned rents starting around $800. That type of housing is almost nonexistent in Charlotte County today. When the Sun reached out to Continental Properties to get an update on the new apartments, we were stunned to see the price for rentals. A 600-square-foot efÂ“ciency is expected to start at $950. A onebedroom will range from $1,095 to $1,350. A two-bedroom can rent for as much as $1,600. A threebedroom? How about up to $1,900. Shocking? Maybe not in todayÂs market, but certainly not workforce housing. Charlotte County commissioners, who approved zoning for the complex and who were also eager for lower-priced rentals, did not seem surprised. ÂI always heard it was going to be market-rate housing,ÂŽ said Commissioner Ken Doherty. ÂWhen supply increases, those numbers may go down.ÂŽ Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch said he hoped for some change in the pricing but, Âit is a private project.ÂŽ He added, ÂI was in that business for a long time Âƒ those prices are a tad higher than I thought they would be, but I expect they could go down.ÂŽ Carrie Blackwell-Hussey, director of human services for the county and a longtime advocate for workforce housing, said she has no idea what happened to the proposed cheaper rents. ÂThat is not workforce housing (prices),ÂŽ she said. ÂBut, my understanding was that it was to be market-rate housing. IÂm not in the real estate industry so I donÂt know what the going rate is right now. ÂAny additional housing in the market is a good thing, though,ÂŽ she said. Jake Meier, marketing specialist for Continental Properties, said once the apartments are completed, the prices may be adjusted. ÂThose are projected rents,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut, you have to look at our brand. We offer luxury amenities and unmatched customer service. We are much more than the space you are renting. ÂAnd prices in the rental market can change daily. It Â”uctuates. When the (complex) is completed and a serious renter comes to us, depending on if they want ground Â”oor, second Â”oor, a garage and so on, the rent could (be cheaper).ÂŽ We can only hope for a price adjustment when Continental experiences the realities of a county with an average per capita income of $38,473 in 2016 Â„ $7,480 less than the statewide average, according to the Florida OfÂ“ce of Economic and Demographic Research. Using the rule of thumb that 30 percent of your income goes for housing, the average worker in Charlotte County could afford an efÂ“ciency at the Springs. As the search continues for workforce housing in Charlotte County, we would ask our county commissioners to get developersÂ hype in writing next time. Meanwhile, anyone believing workforce housing was near can stop holding their breath. If Adam PutnamÂs campaign for governor ultimately crashes on the rocks, historians will note the time of 8:27 p.m., July 25, 2017, as the point where it began to unravel. ThatÂs when he sent out a fateful tweet that was equal parts of bravado and miscalculation. It read: ÂThe liberal media recently called me a sellout to the NRA. IÂm a proud #NRASellout!ÂŽ Putnam may have believed he was invincible at that point. He didnÂt have a serious challenger looming for the Republican nomination and, well, donÂt GOP candidates always win the governorÂs race in Florida? He had money, folksy charm, name recognition, along with the perception by many that this was just his time. After serving in Congress and two terms as state Agriculture Commissioner, this Â“fth-generation Floridian with small-town Bartow roots seemed to have everything going his way. But that changed on ValentineÂs Day when 17 people were shot to death at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The resulting backlash against the NRA, led by student outrage at how Florida Republicans rubber-stamp basically anything from the gun lobby, brought new and now-unwanted attention to Putnam. Suddenly, being a Âproud NRA selloutÂŽ didnÂt sound like such a hot idea. Then, the Tampa Bay Times uncorked a scoop that brought even more eyebrow-raising attention to Putnam. It reported top ofÂ“cials at the beloved Florida grocery chain Publix had donated more than $670,000 to Putnam in the last three years Â„ far more support than it had given any other candidate. Publix tried to explain it was just supporting a pro-business candidate, but a lot of people couldnÂt get past ÂProud NRA Sellout.ÂŽ Just a few days after that story appeared, 10 people were murdered at Santa Fe High School in Texas. That focused more attention on Publix and, by extension, Putnam. Calls for a boycott of Publix for its support of gun-loving Putnam quickly grew loud throughout the state, and it has had an impact. The massive grocery chain, realizing potential damage to the brand, had to issue a statement to CBS.com saying it is reconsidering how to handle such matters in the future. ÂWe regret that some of our political contributions have led to an unintentional customer divide instead of our desire to support a growing economy in Florida,ÂŽ Publix said in an email to CBS.Publix will survive this, but Adam Putnam?

The Sun /Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 WEEK IN REVIEW WeÂre going to try something different today. Rather than pontiÂ“cate yet again upon the motives of Donald TrumpÂs supporters, IÂll let a few of them explain themselves in their own words. Here, then, is ÂRobertÂŽ with a comparative analysis of the 44th and 45th presidents: ÂPresident Trump has accomplished more positive things for this nation in less than two years than the last three have accomplished in twenty plus years. After the past eight years of a Muslim Marxist in the White House this nation could not survive another demwit in the White House. Could you please list one thing the demwit party has done for the black people in America other than hand out government freeies for their continued votes?ÂŽ And hereÂs ÂGaryÂsÂŽ take on demographic change: Â(America) has a constitution which guarantees equal rights for all and yet people like you hungar for change that puts people like me in the back of the bus. You seem egar to know what it would be like to be in the driverÂs seat. You need look no further than Zimbabwe and South Africa. When people like you started driving the bus, the wheels came off. ThatÂs what terriÂ“es people like me.ÂŽ This column is presented as a service for those progressive readers who are struggling with something I said in this space. Namely, that I see no point in trying to reason with Trump voters. I Â“rst wrote that over a month ago, and I am still hearing how ÂdisappointedÂŽ they are at my refusal to reach out. So I thought it might be valuable to hear from the people IÂve failed to reach out to. IÂm sure some of you think those emails were cherry-picked to highlight the intolerance of Trump voters. They werenÂt. They are, in fact, a representative sampling from a single day in May, culled by my assistant, Judi. ItÂs still an article of faith for many that the Trump phenomenon was borne out of Â“scal insecurity, the primal scream of working people left behind by a changing economy. But I donÂt think IÂve ever, not once, seen an email from a Trump supporter who explained himself in terms of the factory or the coal mine shutting down. I have, however, heard from hundreds like ÂMatthew,ÂŽ who worries about ÂimmigrantsÂŽ and ÂGerald,ÂŽ who thinks people of color have an ÂallianceÂŽ against him. Such people validate the verdict of a growing body of scholarship that says, in the words of a new study by University of Kansas professors David N. Smith and Eric Hanley, ÂThe decisive reason that white, male, older and less educated voters were disproportionately pro-Trump is that they shared his prejudices and wanted domineering, aggressive leaders.ÂŽ Look, I get it. ThatÂs a hard pill for those progressives who have kin or friends among Trump supporters. We love who we love, even when they Â„ or we Â„ are small, unkind or disappointing. ThatÂs what family is about. We love who we love, and let no one make you feel compelled to apologize for that. But at the same time, let us be clear-eyed and tough-minded in assessing whatÂs happened to our country Â„ and why. How else can we salvage it from the likes of ÂA TrumperÂŽ who says Trump was needed to Âget things back in orderÂŽ after the Âterrible jobÂŽ done by President Obama? He wrote: ÂWeÂre sick of paying welfare to so many of your brothers who donÂt know what work and integrity mean. I hope you keep writing these articles and reminding my White Christian brothers that we did the right thing and we need to re elect Trump.ÂŽ I have two words for those progressives who think itÂs possible to ÂreasonÂŽ with that: You Â“rst. Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him via email at lpittsmiamiherald.com.Trump supporters speak: HereÂs what they say Leonard Pitts No elaborate catechism is required to determine if someone is a conservative. A single question, as simple as it is infallible, sufÂ“ces: For whom would you have voted in the presidential election of 1912? That year, a former president and a future president ran against the incumbent president, who lost, as did the country, which would have been much better off giving another term to William Howard Taft. Instead it got Woodrow Wilson and the modern imperial presidency that had been preÂ“gured by TaftÂs predecessor and second major opponent in 1912, Theodore Roosevelt. Taft won fewer electoral votes (eight, from Utah and Vermont) than any other incumbent president; Roosevelt carried six states, Wilson 40. TaftÂs presidency was bracketed by RooseveltÂs and WilsonÂs, the progenitors of todayÂs imperial presidency. Jeffrey Rosen, law professor at George Washington University and CEO of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, began writing his new appreciation of the 27th president (ÂWilliam Howard Taft,ÂŽ the latest in the series of slender books on ÂThe American Presidents,ÂŽ now edited by Princeton historian Sean Wilentz) in January 2017, when the 45th president began inadvertently doing something useful Â„ validating nostalgia for Taft, whom Rosen calls Âthe only president to approach the ofÂ“ce in constitutional terms above all.ÂŽ Wilson was the Â“rst president to criticize the American founding, particularly for the separation of powers that crimps presidential supremacy. Roosevelt believed that presidents are free to do whatever the Constitution does not forbid. TaftÂs constitutional modesty held that presidents should exercise only powers explicitly granted by the document. Romanticizers of Roosevelt ignore his belief that no moral equivalent of war could be as invigorating as the real thing, and they celebrate him as a trustbuster taming corporate capitalism and a pioneering environmentalist. Rosen notes, however, that Taft Âextended federal environmental protection to more land than RooseveltÂŽ Â„ and he created 10 national parks Â„ Âand brought more antitrust suits in one term than Roosevelt brought in nearly two.ÂŽ One of RooseveltÂs excuses for trying to regain the presidency was that Taft, who in 1911 brought an antitrust action against U.S. Steel (worldÂs Â“rst billion-dollar corporation, then producing a quarter of the worldÂs steel), was too aggressive in trust-busting. Roosevelt thought that, in industry, big was beautiful (because efÂ“ciently Darwinian) if big government supervised it. Taft signed the Â“rst revision of tariffs, which are regressive taxes, since the 1890s, when they were raised by an average of 57 percent. His tariff message to Congress was just 340 words because he thought the Constitution and traditional political practice allowed presidents to recommend, but not lobby for, congressional action. Such was his constitutional reticence, in his inaugural address he referred to tariff reform as Âa suggestion only.ÂŽ Taft unsuccessfully resisted President William McKinleyÂs entreaties that he become governor of the Philippines (ÂI have never approved of keeping the PhilippinesÂŽ). Others wanted him to be president much more than he did. His aspiration, achieved after the presidency, was to be chief justice of the United States. As a reluctant president, he demonstrated that reluctance, which is vanishingly rare, is a recommendation for the ofÂ“ce. In 1912, RooseveltÂs ÂNew NationalismÂŽ promised populism rampant and a plebiscitary presidency untethered from constitutional inhibitions: ÂI donÂt think that any harm comes from the concentration of powers in one manÂs hands.ÂŽ And ÂI believe in pure democracy,ÂŽ the purity being unmediated, unÂ“ltered public opinion empowered even to overturn state court decisions by referendums. This galvanized TaftÂs determination to resist Roosevelt (Âmy closest friendÂŽ) in the name of judicial independence. Taft had vetoed the legislation admitting New Mexico and Arizona to statehood because the latterÂs constitution provided for the recall of judicial decisions. Arizona removed this quintessentially populist provision Â„ then restored it once safely inside the Union. Taft correctly compared Roosevelt to the Â“rst populist president (whose portrait would be hung in the Oval OfÂ“ce in 2017 by a populist president): ÂThere is a decided similarity between Andrew Jackson and Roosevelt. He had the same disrespect for law when he felt the law stood between him and what he thought was right to do.ÂŽ The 1912 strife between conservative and progressive-populist Republicans simmered until Ronald ReaganÂs election in 1980 sealed conservatismÂs ascendancy in the party. This lasted 36 years, until it was supplanted by its antithesis, populism, 104 years after Taft resisted Roosevelt. This, for a while, prevented American from having only a populist Republican Party to oppose a progressive Democratic Party Â„ an echo, not a choice. George WillÂs email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Trump stokes Republican populism Taft resisted George Will ÂAs a result of this situation, we are evaluating our processes to ensure that our giving better reÂ”ects our intended desire to support a strong economy and a healthy community.ÂŽ Since all of this hit the fan, PutnamÂs tweets have concentrated on mundane campaign stuff like the Newberry Watermelon Festival parade last Saturday. He hasnÂt used that medium to address the controversy with Publix or the growing backlash against the NRA. The closest he came to any of this was a tweet that said he was ÂsaddenedÂŽ by the murders at Santa Fe. IÂm sure he was, but thereÂs a difference between being ÂsaddenedÂŽ and being willing to be an agent of change to a culture that believes guns are as essential as food and water. PutnamÂs candidacy remains strong though, and he still bashing the so-called Âliberal eliteÂŽ at every opportunity. I canÂt see him losing the GOP nomination to an even more strident Ron DeSantis, and Democrats have yet to prove they have a winning formula. But itÂs not the sure thing it used to look like. When Publix starts to move an armÂs length away, you may have a problem. Publix will survive this. Putnam? Too soon to say. The internet lasts forever. If you tweet it, you own it.

In 2016, 82 of the top 100 aerospace companies participated. It involved 1,500 exhibitors from 52 countries. ÂFace-to-face networking is still, by far, the best way to engage and communicate to discover new business prospects,ÂŽ Pears said in the memo. ÂA smile and a handshake still go a long way and can paint a strong picture of yourself and your business to the many attendees and exhibitors.ÂŽ The event is the only international one that the countyÂs economic development department so far plans to attend, Pears conÂ“rmed. And this will be PearsÂ Â“rst time at Farnborough, which according to Enterprise Florida, led to $10.5 million in export sales for Florida businesses in 2016. ÂWe were approached by FPL (Florida Power & Light) and Enterprise Florida to partner with both agencies to represent Florida and our individual communities at this event,ÂŽ said Pears. A Florida pavilion at the event has been one of the largest of U.S. states, according to information from Enterprise Florida, which began attending more than 20 years ago. At least Â“ve counties will be sending people to the Farnborough event this year, according to Enterprise Florida. And it can land deals. For example, Florida Gov. Rick Scott met with ofÂ“cials from a company, GKN Aerospace, during a trade mission to the Farnborough International Air Show in London with Enterprise Florida in 2016. In 2017, Scott announced GKN Aerospace would be opening their Â“rst location in Florida by locating a new manufacturing facility in Bay County, which is expected to create 170 new jobs and invest more than $50 million into that community. The company is a supplier to the international aviation industry, according to information from Enterprise Florida. Charlotte County has also targeted industries such as distribution and medical device manufacturing, according to the countyÂs economic development website.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comDIRECTORFROM PAGE 1Sugar Bert Boxing Title Belt National QualifierHundreds of boxers from the U.S. and Caribbean will converge on Punta Gorda to compete for a chance to advance to the 3rd Annual Sugar Bert Boxing Title Belt National Championship.

AWhole Marketplaceof Shoppingisrightat your Fingertips! FORT LAUDERDALE Â„ After the most horrible day of their lives, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teachers and families expected thoughtful and compassionate outreach from Broward school district staff and board members. But some say their phones stayed quiet. Several said their contacts with the school district have been clumsy or nonexistent. These parents, students and staff are adding their voices to the anguish expressed at a School Board meeting Tuesday by April and Phil Schentrup, whose daughter, Carmen, was killed during the massacre Feb. 14. April Schentrup, principal at Pembroke Pines Elementary School, said none of the nine School Board members offered their condolences. She said the district tried to dock her pay when she took time off to grieve. When she transitioned back to work, she said Broward schools chief Robert Runcie told her Âthis is not a part-time job.ÂŽ Debra Hixon, wife of slain athletic director Chris Hixon, said she shares the pain of being forgotten. Hixon, a 29-year school district employee, is the magnet school coordinator at South Broward High School. ÂI am on the company email. Someone could have said, ÂThinking about you,Â or something,ÂŽ she said. ÂThey know I am broken. It would have been nice to get a message like, ÂIs there something we can do to make this easier for you?ÂÂŽ Since her husbandÂs death, she said, her only contact with the school districtÂs leadership involved Runcie, who appeared at her husbandÂs viewing with a check from a donor at what she thought was an inopportune time. ÂI was pulled out of the line to talk with him,ÂŽ Hixon said. Runcie told her the donorÂs only requirement was to give her a hug, along with the check. Tony Montalto, whose daughter, Gina, died during the shootings, said a school district staffer he did not know approached him as he entered a limousine after a church service for Gina. Montalto said he was Â”oored by what he considered the inappropriate timing. ÂWhy would I listen to him at that moment?ÂŽ Montalto asked. He has since participated in two meetings that Runcie attended, but he has not met him. Montalto said Runcie has never said hello, expressed his condolences or shook his hand. Runcie said he and his staff began reaching out to Stoneman Douglas staff and families the day after the shooting. ÂMany of the families have asked for privacy, and we seek to honor that request while still being available to them,ÂŽ he said. District staff said that as soon as the victims were identiÂ“ed, a social worker, family therapist or psychologist contacted the family. Stoneman Douglas teachers also were offered this help. Staff at the Employee Assistance Program Âmade direct contact with teachers who were in the 1200 building (where the incident occurred),ÂŽ according to a school district statement to The South Florida SunSentinel. Also offered was a telephone hotline, a weekly staff support group and ongoing access to mental health professionals. Some School Board members concede they could have done more. School board member Robin Bartleman, who said she attended 14 of the 17 funerals and wakes for the dead, said she, too, was profoundly affected by the SchentrupsÂ presentation. ÂI thought I was doing right by respecting their privacy,ÂŽ Bartleman said Thursday. ÂNow I deeply regret not reaching out, knowing it would have given April comfort. Clearly she needed that. I feel horrible.ÂŽ Not everyone directly affected by the shooting is critical of the school districtÂs response. Linda Beigel Schulman, whose son, teacher Scott Beigel, was killed, said she received a supportive text from Runcie and always Â“nds someone to answer her questions when she calls. She said school staff helped her get her sonÂs car when the school reopened and organized his belongings in boxes for her to pick up. Geography teacher Kimberly Krawczyk, who was in the 1200 building during the shootings, said the district showed teachers a video before school reopened to demonstrate how to support traumatized children, without acknowledging that teachers were equally devastated. ÂI am angry about the lack of communication and support from the district,ÂŽ she said. ÂI am a teacher and a mom, not a recovery specialist. I was dealing with my own trauma: guilt for yelling at my students to get in the corner, shame for not being able to help the students pulling at my door seeking shelter and remorse for sitting safely with my students while another called down the hall for help. I was not made to be a therapist.ÂŽSome Parkland victims slam school district as unsupportive: ÂThey know I am brokenÂBy LOIS K.

If you have made significant upgrades to your home, creating a list of those upgrades can literally be worth its weight in gold. It can be an invaluable tool for marketing your home, for assisting the appraiser in establishing the market value, and may be useful at tax time towards establishing the cost basis of your home. The easiest way to do this is to create a spreadsheet that includes a description of the upgrade, the year of the upgrade, and the cost. The spreadsheet will automatically sum the costs into the grand total. Most sellers are quite surprised at the total. Homes with upgrades valued at $50,000 to $100,000 are common. A renovated kitchen can easily cost $60,000. The value of the upgrades can also have a powerful impact on potential buyers. Realtors can use the list as a marketing tool by incorporating it into the virtual tour. And while upgrades can also be listed in the listing description, the description is limited to 1,530 characters. That is usually inadequate to list all the upgrades and their cost. Another reason for publicizing the list is that many upgrades are not readily visible. For example, I recently sold a home with electric, roll-down, storm shutters that virtually disappear when not in use. Those were a $20,000 upgrade. I was in a home last week that also had disappearing shutters installed at a cost of $38,000. Hurricane impactrated windows are another very desirable and costly upgrade that is not readily detectable. There is a long list of upgrades that add value to the home but are not readily visible or detectable to buyers viewing the home. I recommend that you break the upgrades list into two sections. Use the first section to list the upgrades that were added when the home was built. It is common for sellers to provide buyers with documents pertaining to the home when the home is sold. If you are not the original owner, but your sellers were gracious enough to provide you with these documents, you may find a list of builderÂs upgrades. Use the second section to list the upgrades that you added after purchasing your home. If your home goes under contract and the buyer is obtaining a mortgage, it is likely the lender will hire an appraiser to verify that your homeÂs value meets or exceeds the sales price. Appraisers typically spend no more than 20 minutes inside the home. Upgrades that are not readily visible or detectable may as well be invisible. In this situation, the upgrades list can again be worth its weight in gold. Recent laws forbid direct communication between the lender and the appraiser. But they do permit communication between the appraiser and Realtors. So, I invariably meet the appraiser to provide him or her with the upgrades list, and to point out other nonobvious characteristics of the home that add value. I have always found appraisers to be receptive and appreciative of any information that is helpful to them. Maintaining an upgrades list could also be helpful if you need to establish the cost basis of your home for tax purposes. For this purpose, youÂll also need receipts or other verification of the cost. Generally speaking, there are situations where current tax laws do not require you to establish the cost basis of your home if the home has been your primary residence and your profit is below a certain level. I keep all receipts indefinitely in case the tax laws change. Brett Slattery is broker/owner of Brett Slattery Realty LLC in Charlotte County.

Ft. Pool Price BE FB HB Built Property Style Sold Terms Sold Date SP/SqFt SP/LP RatioWith summerÂs higher temperatures just around the corner, now is the ideal time to schedule an air conditioning tune-up. Early air conditioner maintenance can prevent many small problems from becoming bigger, more expensive problems in the long run. Furthermore, scheduling your air conditioner checkup now will save you the long waits and higher prices that come with peak season heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) repair visits. Scheduling an annual air conditioner maintenance appointment with an HVAC professional will save you money. For starters, youÂll increase the chances that your technician will catch small problems before they become bigger issues that necessitate costly repair work. Repairing a small refrigerant leak, for example, wonÂt cost much more than the service call itself. But buying a new compressor when low refrigerant levels burn out the existing piece can cost $1,000 dollars or more. An annual checkup will also save you money by ensuring that your air conditioning unit is working at optimal efÂ“ciency. When your air conditioner is running well, it uses less energy to cool your house. And lower energy use means bigger savings on your monthly utility bills. ItÂs easy to schedule an air conditioner checkup. Simply contact a local HVAC technician about coming out to perform basic air conditioner maintenance. Spring or early summer is the best time to schedule this appointment. Not only will you ensure that your unit is in good working order to beat the coming heat, but youÂll also get in before everyone else realizes they need air conditioning service as well. If you call early enough, an HVAC contractor will be able to come out when itÂs most convenient for you. Wait until later in the summer, and you may Â“nd all of the pros are booked (and, in some cases, charging more for emergency appointments). An air conditioner tune-up will help to ensure that you get long-lasting, efÂ“cient performance from your air conditioner. HereÂs a short checklist of the maintenance procedures your HVAC contractor should include in a routine maintenance call: Â€ Check for proper refrigerant levels. Low levels indicate a leak that needs to be found and repaired immediately. Low refrigerant levels can burn out your compressor, resulting in the most expensive kinds of air conditioner repairs. Â€ Check all electrical components and controls to make sure theyÂre working properly. Â€ Clean evaporator and condenser coils. Dirty evaporators and coils reduce the energy efÂ“ciency and cooling ability of your unit. Â€ Oil motors as needed. Â€ Calibrate the thermostat to make sure your air conditioner isnÂt working overtime. Â€ Check the condenser for any possible problems. Â€ Check, clean and/or replace Â“lters. An annual air conditioner checkup is the easiest way to ensure youÂll get worryfree, money-saving performance from your air conditioner Â„ and to keep your unit working at top efÂ“ciency for years to come.Get ahead of the summer heat with an air conditioner tune-upBY HOMEADVISOR OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 8 Advertisement Advertisement Ultraviolet Light PuriÂ“ es Air Inside Homes And Businesses Ultraviolet (UV) light is widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases.

The Sun /Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 21 A decade ago, Chris Rompre, an ER nurse, and his youngest daughter, Kaci, then 10, had their own emergency: abdominal cramps. They consulted doctors and underwent batteries of tests, without relief. But because both Chris and his wife, Debbi an ER EMT, were in the medical Â“eld, they began their own research and, after years of trial and error, homed in on the culprit Â„ gluten. Despite Â„ or perhaps because of Â„ restaurant menus dotted with ÂGFÂŽ labels, countless blogs, hundreds of dedicated social media groups, and such unsettling best-sellers as ÂGrain BrainÂŽ and ÂWheat Belly,ÂŽ confusion and misinformation about gluten intolerance persist. As Chris and Debbi learned, gluten is simply a protein found in grains. But in the gluten intolerant, some of whom suffer from celiac disease, it triggers an autoimmune response that can lead to a host of ailments like those Chris and Kaci experienced. Avoiding gluten, they discovered, wasnÂt just a fad. It restored their health. Debbi had grown up in upstate New York, on land that her parents owned and her grandparents farmed. ÂWe grew up eating fresh fruits and vegetables,ÂŽ she said. ÂIÂd go into the garden with my salt shaker, pick a tomato or a cucumber and eat it. I didnÂt have McDonaldÂs until I was 18.ÂŽ ÂDebbi and her mom are fantastic cooks,ÂŽ explained Chris. ÂWe do most of our home cooking on the grill, with fresh salads and veggies every night. ÂSo, we already ate pretty healthy and it wasnÂt that hard for us to go entirely gluten free. It doesnÂt always mean changing out Â”our, either. We have a machine that turns zucchini into spaghetti, for instance.ÂŽ But it wasnÂt easy, especially for a 10-year-old like Kaci, to avoid bread, baked goods, pizza and pasta. The couple began hunting for gluten-free versions. Said Chris, ÂWe went from Naples to Tampa, and there really wasnÂt much at that time.ÂŽ ÂFor us,ÂŽ Debbi added, Âpreservatives and additives went hand in hand with gluten. So, it became even harder to Â“nd foods. ItÂs hard enough to go gluten free, and when store-bought gluten-free products taste like cardboard, it makes the transition more difÂ“cult.ÂŽ When a perversely serendipitous spinal injury undid DebbiÂs hospital career, she soon found a different way to help others: using her talent for cooking to bring gluten-free goods and seminars to more people. For the last four years the coupleÂs T n D Bakery (which borrowed the initials for DebbiÂs mother, Therese, and Debbi) has been selling at farmers markets in Punta Gorda, Sanibel, Boca Grande, Fort Myers and North Port, where they felt they could reach more people than through brick-and-mortar. In the beginning, the hardest part was getting the bread right. Said Debbi, ÂIt took me eight months blending my own Â”our before IÂd give the bread to anyone but my husband and children. Now weÂre really well known for our sourdough. Customers from England and Canada wait in line just to get some. One lady from Italy, who winters on Boca Grande, takes 20 jars of our bread crumbs back with her.ÂŽ In addition to yeast breads from sourdough to honey-oat multigrain and French; sweet breads such as zucchini, banana and cinnamon raisin; doughnuts, cookies, bars, cakes and biscotti, they also have glutenfree jellies, prepared pasta, bread crumbs and wafÂ”es. Even pizza becomes possible with their gluten-free dough. ÂCustomers take it to their pizzeria to make pizza with,ÂŽ said Debbi. For at least a year now, Debbi and Chris have had their eye on the longempty caf alongside Punta GordaÂs ÂPostcards in TimeÂŽ mural. Now, while continuing at farmers markets, theyÂve opened a brickand-mortar T n D Bakery in what was, at different times, Encore Tearoom/ Caf, DeenaÂs Delectables and DeenaÂs Caf. Centrally located, itÂs close to home and to the farmers market where they have the biggest following. ÂIn the morning weÂll offer fresh-ground coffees, mufÂ“ns, scones and mini-soufÂ”s Â„ for people to eat here or take to the ofÂ“ce. For lunch, weÂll have different types of salads, tabbouleh, shepherdÂs pie, spinach pie, pot pies.ÂŽ The homey, 28-seat caf will emphasize healthy eating, without preservatives, additives or GMOs. It just happens to be gluten free, too, because thatÂs how Chris and Debbi themselves eat. Among their toughest critics were family members who wanted them to open a ÂnormalÂŽ eatery and told them that gluten free would be a hard sell. ÂNot long ago, we had a family gathering,ÂŽ said Chris. ÂAfter they all said what a great time they had, complimented us and went home, we told them, ÂWeÂre so glad you enjoyed it. Every bite you ate was gluten free.ÂÂŽ T n D Bakery ($), 941-585-9443, 122 Nesbit Street, #114 (facing E. Marion Avenue, next to the ÂPostcards in TimeÂŽ mural), is open Monday to Friday 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. The entrance is on Marion, with ample parking behind the building.

Page 22 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 As local high school graduates celebrate their accomplishments this summer and take a deep breath before considering the next step in their life plan, we want them to know that thereÂs no better time to become a Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) Buccaneer. Our peaceful Charlotte Campus in Punta Gorda offers everything theyÂre seeking in a friendly, natural setting. Students take evening, weekend and online classes in a number of competitive academic degree programs, such as nursing or business administration and management. With additional access to any of the classes at our three locations in Southwest Florida, there are no limits to what they can achieve. The average class size at FSW is 24, so students can personally connect with faculty and staff while taking advantage of a hands-on learning environment. FSW provides multiple pathways for students. The majority of FSW students graduate with an associate in arts (A.A.) degree, which allows a seamless transfer to any of the 13 Florida public universities in the stateÂs 2+2 program (www. FSW.edu/twoplustwo). Spending their Â“rst two years at FSW gives students a chance to save money with our affordable tuition rates and complete their general education requirements before transferring. Other students earn associate in science (A.S.) degrees in speciÂ“c Â“elds such as accounting, computer programming, or cardiovascular technology, and with high job placement rates they are hired directly into the local workforce to positions with generous pay and beneÂ“ts. Some people donÂt know that FSW also offers bachelorÂs degrees. Many of our students decide to stay at the college after their associate degree or return for career advancement to earn a four-year degree in one of Â“ve workforce-based disciplines: elementary education, nursing, cardiopulmonary sciences, public safety administration, and supervision and management. Exciting things are happening on the Charlotte Campus. Western Michigan University partnered with FSW to offer bachelorÂs and graduate degrees to the Punta Gorda community and develop an aviation program to train new pilots. This year, the FSW Nursing Program also celebrated 50 years of training the professional nurses who work in hospitals across the region. Our FSW Buccaneers athletics teams are winning championships and students get free admission to all games. Campus life continues to expand, with more students getting active in student clubs and organizations, and the FSW OfÂ“ce of Student Engagement planning events and workshops to keep them engaged outside of the classroom. We hope our local high school graduates consider FSW this summer during the college application process. TheyÂll Â“nd many opportunities and beneÂ“ts waiting for them on campus, and when itÂs time to leave, theyÂll Â“nd that FSW has helped open many new doors. If you know a graduate who is interested in learning more about FSW, please refer them to www.FSW. edu/admissions. Our Admissions OfÂ“ce holds regular tours and information sessions, and our fall open house will be in October.Florida SouthWestern students take many pathsIn observance of the Memorial Day holiday, all Charlotte and Sarasota County government business offices along with North Port and Punta Gorda city offices will be closed May 28.

ÂReminds me of a movie,ÂŽ he said. ÂWhy Samuel,ÂŽ said I, our relationship having afforded me the familiarity, Âwhatever do you mean?ÂŽ The good doctor went on to describe a scene from the 1955 medical melodrama ÂNot as a Stranger,ÂŽ about the trials and tribulations of the brilliant and dedicated medical student Lucas Marsh (played by Robert Mitchum). During the scene in question, a patient asks Dr. Marsh to remove an ugly mole on her jaw. After examining the mole, Dr. Marsh says it would be best Ânot to touch it.ÂŽ Later, after learning his best friend, Dr. Alfred Boone (Frank Sinatra), removed the mole, Dr. Marsh reproaches his friend, arguing that Âit wasnÂt a simple mole, it was a melanomaÂŽ as if Dr. Boone had been grossly negligent. Despite that medical inaccuracy, this is a terrific film. It marked famed director Stanley KramerÂs debut and features a stellar cast. In addition to Mitchum and Sinatra, there are Olivia de Havilland, Gloria Grahame, Broderick Crawford and Lee Marvin, each immensely watchable. I told Dr. Johnson that while I was not familiar with that particular scene, I remembered the movie and would rank it among the top medical films I had seen.

Here are a few tips to help keep your eyes safe and healthy. 1. Use sun protection. Your eyes need protection from the sunÂs harmful rays just like your skin does. Over-exposure to the sun can cause early cataracts, skin cancer around the eyelids, macular degeneration and premature wrinkles. Sunglasses that block 99 percent to 100 percent of UV-A and UV-B rays is very important. Wrap-around sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats add extra protection because they help block UV rays from entering the eyes from the sides and above. 2. Wear eye protection. There are an estimated 2.5 million eye injuries in the United States each year. Many of these injuries can be avoided with the use of proper eye protection. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved eyewear is recommended for home and recreational use. Accidents to the eye can occur around the home while gardening, doing repairs, or using harsh chemicals. Sports-related injuries are also common while Â“shing, golÂ“ng and playing baseball, to name a few. Wearing a cap, proper eye protection and being cognizant of your surroundings can be a safeguard to any potential injury. 3. Know your family history. Many diseases tend to run in families. Diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma are hereditary. By making your eye professional aware of your family medical history, you are providing a valuable tool for early detection and intervention. Being knowledgeable about your history is imperative as it can lead to a more favorable outcome. 4. Proper nutrition. A healthy diet with a variety of green leafy vegetables, fruits, lean protein and omega-3s is a wonderful way to prevent eye disease and maintain overall health.

According to a 2015 report published in the Daily Mail, many people spend more time on their devices than they do sleeping. A recent Nielsen Company audience report found that adults in the United States devote about 10 hours and 40 minutes each day to consuming media on their personal computers, tablets, multimedia devices, TVs, and more. Researchers continue to study the effects of screen time on personal health, but there is reason to believe that screen time may be especially harmful to vision. Devices force the eyes to focus at near range, and over time that can have an adverse effect on vision. Prevent Blindness America says that eye fatigue, dryness and blurred vision are some of the common effects of prolonged screen use, but these are not the only concerns. Digital devices also expose the eyes to blue light. While research as to how blue light impacts vision is ongoing, there is concern over the long-term effects of screen exposure since these screens are in close proximity to the eyes and use is often prolonged. Prevent Blindness America says that studies suggest continued exposure to blue light over time can lead to difÂ“culty focusing, premature aging of the eyes and even damage to retinal cells. A recent study by the National Eye Institute found the frequency of myopia, also known as near-sightedness, has increased exponentially in the last few years. Reasons include a spike in time spent looking at things close-up and a lack of outdoor activities that require focusing elsewhere.

Snow, rain and other factors that compromise driversÂ vision can make driving hazardous, but thereÂs a dark side to sunny skies as well. Glare from the sun can compromise driversÂ vision and lead to driving mishaps, regardless of driversÂ experience or skill level. The sun can pack a powerful punch any time during the day, but can be especially hazardous in the early morning sunrise and late-afternoon sunset. A 2017 study published in the journal Medicine titled, Lifethreatening motor vehicle crashes in bright sunlight looked at the risks posed by bright sunlight. Researchers found that the risk of a life-threatening crash was 16 percent higher during bright sunlight than during normal weather. Researchers concluded that bright sunlight may create visual illusions that lead to driver error, including poor distance judgement. Plentiful sunlight is often a hallmark of spring and summer, but sun-blindness is a real concern for drivers. As anyone who has turned into blazing sun only to discover their windshield has been rendered opaque by sun glare can attest, driving on sunny days can be challenging. Unfortunately, the sun might create substantial glare during rush hour, making driving during these times more dangerous and accidents more likely. While there might be no way to prevent glare, drivers can take steps to make driving safer during times of day when glare is prevalent. Â€ Make sure the windshield is clean.

Offering homework help and/or hiring tutors can help kids achieve their academic potential, but parents should not overlook the effects their childrenÂs vision can have on their performance in the classroom. The American Optometric Association notes that students perform visual tasks in the classroom throughout a typical school day. Kids rely on their vision when reading, writing or using computers. When that vision is not functioning properly, studentsÂ performance may suffer. What are some warning signs that kids may be struggling with their vision? The AOA notes that undeveloped or poorly developed visual skills can make it difÂ“cult or stressful for youngsters to learn. But children may not always inform their parents if theyÂre struggling with their vision. Rather, the AOA says children with poor visual skills will typically avoid reading or other near visual work as much as possible. Students also may attempt to do their work, but do so with a lowered level of comprehension or efÂ“ciency. Discomfort, fatigue and shortened attention spans are other potential indicators of undeveloped or poorly developed visual skills. Children experiencing eye and vision problems also may suffer from frequent headaches, cover one eye, tilt their head to one side, lose their place when reading, see double, and/or hold reading materials close to their face. Are poor visual skills always diagnosed? Because undeveloped or poorly developed visual skills elicit many of the same symptoms associated with attention deÂ“cit hyperactivity disorder, some kids struggling with their vision may be misdiagnosed with ADHD. To ensure kids are accurately diagnosed, the AOA recommends that children receive routine eye examinations. This is especially important for school-aged children, as vision changes frequently during this period. Visual problems like myopia (nearsightedness) or refractive errors like farsightedness or astigmatisms can adversely affect studentsÂ academic performance. When should kids receive eye exams? The AOA recommends children receive annual eye examinations. More frequent examinations are recommended for children experiencing speciÂ“c vision problems. School screenings are not sufÂ“cient, as the AOA notes that such screenings only test for distance visual acuity. Comprehensive optometric examinations are more thorough than school screenings and can reveal issues that can adversely affect students in the classroom. Undeveloped or poorly developed visual skills can adversely affect kidsÂ academic performance. But annual optometric examinations can detect vision problems that may otherwise go undiagnosed.

The Sun /Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 27 Every day, a school bus drops off as many as 45 children at a community eye clinic on ChicagoÂs South Side. Many of them are referred to the clinic after failing vision screenings at their public schools. Clinicians and students from the Illinois College of Optometry give the children comprehensive eye exams, which feature refraction tests to determine a correct prescription for eyeglasses and dilation of their pupils to examine their eyes, including the optic nerve and retina. No family pays out-ofpocket for the exam. The program bills insurance if the children have coverage, but about a third are uninsured. Operated in partnership with Chicago public schools, the program annually serves up to 7,000 children from birth through high school. ÂMany of the kids weÂre serving fall through the cracks,ÂŽ said Dr. Sandra Block, a professor of optometry at the Illinois College of Optometry and medical director of the school-based vision clinics program. Many are low-income Hispanic and African-American children whose parents may not speak English or are immigrants who are not in the country legally. Falling through the cracks is not an uncommon problem when it comes to vision care. According to a 2016 report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, as many as 16 million people in the United States have undiagnosed or uncorrected ÂrefractiveÂŽ errors that could be Â“xed with eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery. And while insurance coverage for eye exams and corrective lenses clearly has improved, signiÂ“cant gaps remain. The national academiesÂ report noted that impaired vision affects how people experience their world, including normal communication and social activities, independence and mobility. Not seeing clearly can hamper childrenÂs academic achievement, social development and long-term health. But when people must choose, vision care may lose out to more pressing medical concerns, said Block, who was on the committee that developed the report. ÂVision issues are not life-threatening,ÂŽ she said. ÂPeople get through their day knowing they canÂt see as well as theyÂd like.ÂŽ Insurance can make regular eye exams, glasses and treatment for medical problems such as cataracts more accessible and affordable. But comprehensive vision coverage is often achieved only through a patchwork of plans. The Medicare program that provides coverage for millions of Americans age 65 and older doesnÂt include routine eye exams, refraction testing or eyeglasses. Some tests are covered if youÂre at high risk for a condition such as glaucoma, for example. And if you develop a vision-related medical condition such as cataracts, the program will cover your medical care. But if youÂre just a normal 70-year-old and you want to get your eyes examined, the program wonÂt cover it, said Dr. David Glasser, an ophthalmologist in Columbia, Md., who is a clinical spokesman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. If you make an appointment because youÂre experiencing troubling symptoms and get measured for eyeglasses while there, youÂll likely be charged anywhere from about $30 to $75, Glasser said. There are a few exceptions. Medicare will pay for one pair of glasses or contact lenses following cataract surgery, for example. Some Medicare Advantage plans offer vision care. Many commercial health insurance plans also exclude routine vision care from their coverage. Employers may offer workers a separate vision plan to Â“ll in the gaps. VSP Vision Care provides vision care plans to 60,000 employers and other clients, said Kate Renwick-Espinosa, the organizationÂs president. A typical plan provides coverage for a comprehensive eye exam once a year and an allowance toward standard eyeglasses or contact lenses, sometimes with a copayment. Also, individuals seeking plans make up a growing part of their business, she said. Vision coverage for kids improved under the Affordable Care Act. The law requires most plans sold on the individual and small-gr oup market to offer vision beneÂ“ts for children younger than 19. That generally means that those plans cover a comprehensive eye exam, including refraction, every year, as well as a pair of glasses or contact lenses. But since pediatric eye exams arenÂt considered preventive care that must be covered without charging people anything out-of-pocket under the ACA, theyÂre subject to copays and the deductible. Medicaid programs for low-income people also typically cover vision beneÂ“ts for children and sometimes for adults as well, said Dr. Christopher Quinn, president of the American Optometric Association, a professional group. But coverage alone isnÂt enough. To bring down the number of people with undiagnosed or uncorrected vision, education is key to helping people understand the importance of eye health in maintaining good vision. Just as important, it can also reduce the impact of chronic conditions such as diabetes, the national academiesÂ report found. ÂAll health care providers need to at least ask vision questions when providing primary care,ÂŽ said Block.Lack of insurance exposes blind spots in vision careBy MICHELLE ANDREWSKAISER HEALTH NEWSFEELING FIT 3 Darlene and Marco Decinti feel blessed to be able to help the community with the A & E Autos 4 The Needy program.On Thursday, May, 10, A & E Autos 4 The Needy in Port Charlotte donated four cars to local residents in need.

(941)-979-2887 MEDICAL6095 NEWS & NOTESGolisano recognized as asthma-friendly hospitalGolisano ChildrenÂs Hospital of Southwest Florida is the newest hospital and the fourth in the state to be designated an Asthma-Friendly Hospital by the Florida Asthma Coalition. This state-wide award recognizes hospitals that create a safe and healthy environment for patients with asthma. The hospital had to meet speciÂ“c criteria that were designed to improve asthma care and outcomes for patients while reducing emergency department visits and hospitalizations. The Â“ve criterion include: Â€ Professional development for hospital nurses and respiratory therapists on asthma management Â€ Professional development for hospital physicians on asthma management Â€ Asthma action plan Â€ Self-management education Â€ Multi-component home-based asthma education Hospital admissions due to asthma at Golisano ChildrenÂs Hospital have been declining for the past several years. In 2014, there were 611 children with asthma admitted to the hospital; that number signiÂ“cantly declined to 369 admissions in Â“scal year 2017. Readmission rates dropped to nearly half in the same period Â„ from 5.7 percent in 2014 to 2.8 percent in 2017. The decreases are a direct result of an asthma prevention program that helps patients and families better understand the disease, the triggers and how to manage medications. Lee Health already helped day care centers and school districts throughout Southwest Florida work toward Asthma-Friendly designation. Marked by episodes of coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and breathlessness, asthma is common among children. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note that, on average in a classroom of 30 children, about four are likely to have asthma. It is important for children to understand what triggers an attack and how to take their medications and treat their asthma.

SHINE is a free, unbiased Medicare and health insurance information, counseling, and assistance program whose specially-trained volunteers assist seniors in making informed health care decisions. Currently, the Area Agency on Aging of Southwest Florida supports more than 50 dedicated SHINE volunteers who provide services to aged and disabled Medicare beneÂ“ciaries, their caregivers, and families. However, as the number of Medicare beneÂ“ciaries needing assistance increases, the need for volunteers increases, too. A SHINE volunteer can serve in many different capacities. Volunteers provide Medicare and health insurance information, counseling and assistance in person or over the phone, delivers educational presentations or speeches, distributes educational and promotional materials in your community, provides training and leadership to other volunteers, or assists with general program support. Assignments are matched to the skills and interests of each volunteer. The Area Agency on Aging of Southwest Florida supports its volunteers through a network of paid staff and volunteer coordinators. The Department of Elder Affairs provides training and technical assistance. Volunteers also receive local mentoring and support from the Area Agency on Aging of Southwest Florida. The rewards for volunteer service are plentiful. Since the ProgramÂs inception in 1993, SHINE volunteers have helped Florida elders and their caregivers save millions of dollars, and they have brought peace of mind to those who needed guidance in understanding and accessing health insurance options. To inquire about volunteer opportunities or to request SHINE services in your community,
The Sun /Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 29 Like others before you, you have tried to improve your Â“tness and health and have failed or found it difÂ“cult to accomplish. The good news is, with the right attitude and knowledge base, the potential for improved Â“tness and health increases. In this article, I will introduce you to principles and practices that have helped others take their Â“tness and health to higher levels. In addition, I will provide an opportunity for you to ensure, even more, the success of your Â“tness and health goals. See end of article for my offer. It is almost impossible for anyone to improve his/her Â“tness or health without some understanding of what they are. Fitness signiÂ“es preparation for -and adjustment toan activity, an event, a situation or even life itself. A cyclist trains so s/he may be Â“t to participate in a scheduled race. Fitness, unfortunately, does not signify health. Fitness is expressed through components such as: agility, balance, coordination, power, speed and reaction time. Other -more health relatedcomponents are cardiovascular Â“tness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, Â”exibility and body composition. Health, although it encompasses many components that are related to Â“tness, is not expressed solely through ones physical capacities and abilities. Health (unlike Â“tness) considers the total individual; not just aspects. In addition, it views the individual as an entity that is interconnected to all that surrounds him or her. It is -thereforewise to keep in mind that running long distances, eating the right foods or even meditating many hours a day does not indicate good health. Even the most physically attuned individual could be mentally and/or emotionally unbalanced; a situation that would certainly not form a favorable basis for good health (wholeness). Health, in essence, is a state or condition of physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being that is brought about through the harmonious interplay between man and the things around him. To improve your Â“tness and health will require some degree of planning and preparation. In addition, consideration should be given to your existing level of Â“tness and state of health. So, before proceeding too far with your Â“tness and health improvement efforts, it is important that you assess your existing state. If you are overweight, lack endurance, possess inadequate muscle strength or are overly inÂ”exible, then you should consider Â“tness improvement. Regarding your health, you should view your existing state from the inside out. You should consider, Â“rst and foremost, how well the bodyÂs internal systems are functioning. Next, consider how you function with or relate to the people and things within your external environments. Finally, you should consider the quality or degree of your relationship with nature, the universe, the spiritual realm, the creative force or whatever name you choose to give the supreme power that is the basis for all that exists. Now, there are quite a number of conditions (illnesses) that can be made worse when certain products and food items are used and when certain exercises are attempted. It is therefore wise to communicate regularly and openly with your doctor or other health advisors when planning or participating in a Â“tness or health improvement program. Also, as a general rule, irrespective of your age, if you suffer from any pulmonary, cardiovascular or metabolic disease such as diabetes or diseases of the thyroid, liver or kidneys, you should have a health screening prior to participating in any type of strenuous exercise. Your plan to improve your Â“tness and health should not be simplistic. It should make use of components that are expansive and varied enough to assess your existing Â“tness and health state and determine needs that are important and capable of facilitating improvement. What follows are a number of concepts, principles and tips that possess the potential to enhance your existing state of Â“tness and health. Â€ Acquaint yourself with the nature and scope of Â“tness and health. Read widely and study those subjects and areas of interest and importance to you. Make use of the internet while keeping in mind that not everything offered there is true and/or correct. Â€ Do not limit yourself in your choice of Â“tness and health services and resources. Study, research and gain knowledge of those that are new, uncommon, unconventional and even strange. Your goal should always be to seek those services and resources that are safe and beneÂ“cial. Â€ Expand your social sphere. Take a health class or two. You may also wish to join a Â“tness or health club in your neighborhood. Keep in mind though that all clubs are not equal. Choose one that will best satisfy your unique needs. Be willing to pay a bit more for the high quality service that you deserve, You should also keep in mind that all the wealth in the world will be worthless if you are too sick to use and enjoy it. Spend a bit more for your Â“tness and good health. Â€ Your state of health and level of Â“tness constantly change. On one hand you have positive degrees of Â“tness and health. On the other, negative degrees. When you allow your state of health and level of Â“tness to move too far in the negative direction, you become ÂunhealthyÂŽ and ÂunÂ“t.ÂŽ When, on the other hand, your state of health and level of Â“tness move in the positive direction, good health and improve Â“tness are the results. Your task, therefore, is to do those things that will help to maintain Â“tness and good health. From birth to the point of death, how active you are will have a strong inÂ”uence on your Â“tness and health. For most, the highest activity levels precede the senior years. In fact, data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the percentage of adults (both sexes combined) who engaged in regular leisure-time physical activity decreased with age. Furthermore, for adults 65-74 years, women were less likely than men to engage in regular leisure-time physical activity. Always keep in mind that when suitable levels of activity are maintained at the various stages of oneÂs life, Â“tness, good health, a slowing of the aging process and the potential for long life are all possible. At least 23 percent of deaths from the major chronic diseases are linked to sedentary lifestyles. Increasing ones activity level through participation in regular physical activity is a sure way to help improve Â“tness and health and reduce the risk of developing or dying from many common diseases. These beneÂ“ts are not bestowed just on the young. They are available to all who are willing (and able) to activate themselves regularly and at a level or intensity that will produce these beneÂ“ts. To those wanting to improve their Â“tness and health, join me at the Cultural Center of Charlotte CountyÂs Fitness Center. I will work with you for three months (June to August, 2018) to help ensure that your goal of improving your Â“tness and health is realized. You will have access to the center and its equipment and be provided a training program created or you. You will also receive training and assistance that are essential and required to help you reach your goal. Interested persons are asked to call 941-625-4175 ext. 263 or visit the Cultural CenterÂs Fitness Center at 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.Principles and practices to improve your tness and healthBy GREGORY WHYTETHE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYÂS FITNESS CENTERFEELING FIT 5 the eyes, and that l imiting usage of gadgets decreased the degree of eye crossing in these patients. Eyes, just like any other muscle, require a varied workout to remain healthy. Many vision experts recommend the 20-20-20 rule. According to this rule, for every 20 minutes of looking at a screen, a person should look away at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds or more. This will help eye muscles to relax. The group All About Vision says to use proper lighting, such as ambient lighting. Position a computer monitor so that windows or lights are to the sides instead of in front or behind it. Be sure indoor light isn't too bright, as bright light can contribute to glare and fatigue. AntireÂ”ective lenses on eyeglasses or Â“lters for screens also can help absorb some of the blue light and limit how much reaches the retina and accesses the central nerve of the eye. This may alleviate digital eye strain as well. Screen users may want to adjust the display of their devices so they feature a cool, gray tone, which produces less glare. Eyes can be adversely affected by screen time unless strategies are implemented to limit strain and to rest muscles.DAMAGEFROM PAGE 1 Water marks, dead insects, cracks, and road grime can make it even harder to see out of the windshield when the sun is blazing. Clean windshields regularly, and donÂt wait until youÂre head-on into the sun to engage the windshield washer spray. Doing so may only further compromise visibility. Â€ Observe speed limits. When glare is present, slow down and keep more space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. If someone in front of you needs to brake suddenly, the greater distance between vehicles can give you more time to react and avoid accidents. Â€ Change your route. Try changing your commute so youÂre not driving headon into eastern sun in the morning and western sun in the afternoon. Â€ Invest in new sunglasses. Special lenses that mitigate glare, UV rays and blue light can make it easier for drivers to handle glare when behind the wheel. Â€ Make sure the visor is functioning. Sun visors are there for a reason. Use it to the best of your ability, angling as needed. Â€ Pull over. If the glare is especially bad, Plymouth Rock Assurance suggests playing it safe and pulling over until the sun rises or sets. You also may want to change your driving time to avoid the glare. Motor vehicle accidents can happen on bright, sunny days. Glare can compromise driversÂ visibility, and drivers may need to take steps to protect their vision on sunny days.

See an eye professional. Annual eye exams are a good rule of thumb. Children are typically followed by their pediatrician and screened for vision problems at their annual exam. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends the following guidelines when one should see and eye doctor (ophthalmologist): Â€ Before the age of 5, toddlers should be screened for common childhood problems such as crossed eyes, lazy eye, nearsightedness and farsightedness. Â€ From age 20-29, at least once during this period. Â€ From age 30-39, at least twice during this period. Â€ Age 40, comprehensive eye exam, with future frequency determined by this exam. Â€ Age 65 and over, every one to two years. Â€ Individuals at higher risk for eye disease should be examined more often (African Americans over 40, history of high blood pressure, diabetes, or family history of eye disease or injury).

Page 30 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 Many people take their vision for granted until a problem arises that affects their ability to see. While certain conditions may occur suddenly, others develop more gradually and may not even be noticeable until the problem has progressed significantly. Cataracts is a common vision problem that is often associated with aging. The National Eye Institute says that, by age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Prevent Blindness America says there are more cases of cataracts worldwide than there are of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy combined. The American Optometric Association defines a cataract as a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Depending on its size, cataracts can interfere with normal vision. They typically occur in people over the age of 55. A cataract can be present in one or both eyes. The lens is responsible for helping to focus light or an image on the retina. In a healthy lens, fluid and protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear, offers NEI. However, as one ages, the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. Over time, this clouding may grow. Researchers also suspect there are other causes to cataracts, such as smoking or diabetes. In addition, wear and tear on the lens can develop into cataract clouding. Significant alcohol consumption, UV radiation, eye surgery, and high myopia also may contribute to cataract formation. All About Vision says the types of cataracts include: Â€ Subcapsular cataract, which occurs at the back of the lens; Â€ Nuclear cataract, which forms deep in the central zone of the lens; and Â€ Cortical cataract, which starts as white opacities in the periphery of the lens and then grows inward. The Mayo Clinic advises that there are no known methods to prevent cataracts or slow their progression. But choosing a healthy diet full of antioxidants, quitting bad habits like smoking, managing diabetes, and having regular eye examinations can help. ItÂs also a good idea to wear sunglasses that block against UVA and UVB light when outdoors. Cataracts can cause blurring of vision and even make it difficult to see in bright conditions. Colors may seem faded, night vision may be adversely affected and glare may be problematic. The AOA says that early cataracts typically are not treated and changes to prescriptions may provide temporary visual improvement. If a cataract progresses to the point that it affects oneÂs ability to perform everyday tasks, surgery in which an artificial lens replaces the natural lens may be necessary.

Frankenstein, Caligari and Strange Â„ I offered Dr. J. the following: ÂThe Cider House Rules,ÂŽ a 1999 award winner directed by Lasse Hallstrm and based on John IrvingÂs novel. An extraordinary group of actors Â„ including Oscar winner Michael Caine, Tobey Magui re, Charlize Theron, Paul Rudd, Delroy Lindo, Jane Alexander and Kathy Baker Â„ delivers beautiful and touching performances while covering a number of deep issues such as growing up, abortion, and rape. ÂM*A*S*HÂŽ director Robert AltmanÂs satirical black comedy about life (and death) in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. It stars Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt, Elliott Gould, Sally Kellerman, Robert Duvall, Ren Auberjonois, Gary Burghoff, Roger Bowen and Michael Murphy. (BurghoffÂs Radar OÂReilly transitioned to the equally successful and long-running TV series.) ÂThose doctors were making their own rules,ÂŽ noted Dr. J. In ÂOutbreak,ÂŽ another group of Army doctors struggle to find a cure for a deadly virus spreading throughout a California town that was brought to America by an African monkey. The 1995 film was directed by Wolfgang Petersen and stars Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey. ÂThe Interns,ÂŽ centering on the personal and professional conflicts endured by a group of young doctors fresh out of med school, hit theaters in 19 62. The Â“lm features Michael Callan and Cliff Robertson among the interns under the tutelage of senior surgeons Telly Savalas and Buddy Ebsen. David Swift also directed James MacArthur, Stefanie Powers, Suzy Parker and Nick Adams. While ÂThe InternsÂŽ presaged many similar television programs, you have to go back to 1938 for the quintessential medical mentor movie. ÂYoung Dr. KildareÂŽ stars Lew Ayres as Dr. James Kildare, an idealistic, freshly graduated medical intern who beneÂ“ts greatly from the wise counsel of his experienced mentor, Dr. Leonard Gillespie (played by Lionel Barrymore). To give the nurses their due, consider ÂSo Proudly We Hail!ÂŽ a 1943 war Â“lm directed and produced by Mark Sandrich and starring Claudette Colbert, Paulette Goddard and Veronica Lake. They are among a group of military nurses sent to the Philippines during the early days of World War II. The story covers many dayto-day events and contrasts the brutality of war against the sometimes futile efforts of the nurses to provide medical aid and comfort. Each of the nurses has a past or present love story with a soldier, and while that may be the primary focus of the Â“lm, the difÂ“culties and emotional toll of war are also shown in unforgettable fashion. ÂAll well and good,ÂŽ said Dr. Johnson as he removed a handkerchief from his vest and proceeded to wipe his pince-nez. ÂHowever, letÂs not forget ÂThe DoctorÂ with William Hurt playing a very aloof and distant surgeon until he gets sick.ÂŽ The good doctor cited several other Â“lms along with pithy comments: ÂDr. ZhivagoÂŽ Â„ Âabove the politics.ÂŽ ÂDr. DoolittleÂŽ Â„ Âa really great vet.ÂŽ ÂMagniÂ“cent ObsessionÂŽ Â„ Âan accident changes a careless man into a dedicated doctor.ÂŽ ÂArrowsmithÂŽ Â„ Âheroic doctor changing the science of medicine.ÂŽ Dr. Johnson concluded his remarks with a question: ÂWonder if your readers have any thoughts?ÂŽ ÂWe shall see,ÂŽ I replied.

As the school year draws to a close and fewer teens plan to spend their summers scooping ice cream, carrying golf clubs and working other hourly jobs, parenting and career counseling experts say todayÂs young people are forgoing valuable life and workplace lessons needed to become successful and happy adults. ÂWhen I think about kids en masse not working, I think about all the things theyÂre going to miss out on,ÂŽ said Tim Thayne, a family therapist and author of the book ÂNot by Chance: How Parents Boost Their TeenÂs Success in and After Treatment.ÂŽ ÂThereÂs a level of accountability that doesnÂt come with internships; it doesnÂt come with service either,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf youÂre out doing a service project, the person youÂre doing the service project for probably isnÂt going to get after you if youÂre on a cellphone.ÂŽ The youth summer labor force Â„ the number of 16 Â„ to 24-year-olds working or actively looking for work has been on the decline for more than 30 years, with a peak rate of 77.5 percent in July 1989. In 2017, the youth labor force participation rate was 60.6 for July, considered the peak of summertime youth employment, according to statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor. Last July, only four in 10 teens were in the labor force, compared with about seven in 10 in July 1978, according to the department. Research points to a number of factors that have contributed to the decline in teens taking summer jobs: more students taking internships or seeking volunteer experiences to bolster college applications, overbooked extracurricular activity schedules, and lack of available hourly jobs in some communities. But Mike Minton, assistant director of the Career Center at Illinois State University, said he and other college ofÂ“cials think teens avoiding summer jobs in the hopes of padding their college resumes is counterproductive. College ofÂ“cials sometimes value work experience just as much, if not more, than service in a community. ÂWe see the value the students bring when they bring employment experience from high school,ÂŽ Minton said, adding that students with notable work experience from their teen years often come to college with a strong sense of time management, strong verbal communication skills and a good work ethic. Students who work summer jobs before college also seem to get exposure to lines of work they may or may not be interested in, making it easier to narrow down a career choice later, Minton said. ÂGetting used to the Â”ow of work, getting used to customer service at a fast food restaurant or up in the hay loft, itÂs great for just character development,ÂŽ Minton said. Thayne said allowing teens to be employed by an outside business or person is most beneÂ“cial because it forces them to show respect, develop relationships and be compensated by people theyÂve never met. But he said parents have a responsibility to help a child seek out those opportunities. In working with families, Thayne said, he encourages parents with teens to balance allowing young people to experience situations that build resilience while also keeping them from too much difÂ“culty for their age. ÂYour goal is to help them someday be happy and be able to be a great, contributing member of society,ÂŽ Thayne said. ÂAnd in order to get there, youÂre really trying to help your teen develop a sense of personal mastery in their life over time. YouÂre going to want to let them do some things that are pretty hard.ÂŽ For Thayne and his wife, who are raising Â“ve children ages 14 to 23 in Utah, this meant buying a milking cow for his children to take turns milking twice a day for a small business the family ran out of the home, 365 days a year. Thayne said that when his daughter, the only girl, inherited the job after her older brother graduated from high school, she sulked and protested the need for the responsibility. But it didnÂt take long for the girl to change her attitude about work, he said. ÂA week later, she kind of came into the house smiling. She said, ÂDad, I donÂt want to really tell you this, but itÂs actually kind of fun.ÂÂŽTeens need summer jobs to learn important life skillsBy VIKKI ORTIZCHICAGO TRIBUNEToo bad theyÂre not getting them Fewer teens are getting summer jobs.

College interns used to make coffee and open mail. Those days are gone. Christian Cousin, a mechanical engineering student from Cape Coral, Fla., co-invented such groundbreaking technology during his 12-week internship at Eaton Valvetrain in Marshall, Mich., that the company was inspired to Â“le multiple patents and created a product prototype now used by a customer. ÂInterns have this need to make a difference,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe donÂt just want to sit around designing stationary objects in a warehouse. A company has to be aggressive.ÂŽ This is the mindset of new engineers in one of the fastest-growing industries in America. Corporate leaders say they are rethinking how they recruit in the insanely competitive area of engineering. ÂMuch of the future of the automotive industry is going to be determined, and developed, right here in Detroit,ÂŽ said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, GM global product development, purchasing and supply chain. ÂBy 2020, itÂs estimated that the United States will face a shortage of roughly half a million engineers, so we are working hard to offer the kinds of experiences and opportunities in Detroit that students are seeing in Silicon Valley and other technology hubs around the world.ÂŽ Young men and women from colleges around the country Â“ll 400 engineering internships at GM in southeast Michigan alone. Driverless vehicles and electriÂ“cation are a huge draw. Now companies are targeting high school students more aggressively. Cristo Rey High School in Detroit feeds a pipeline of about 50 students a year through work-study programs at GMÂs Tech Center, the Renaissance Center, Global Propulsion and other facilities. ÂTheyÂre not pushing paper,ÂŽ Reuss said. ÂSome work on manufacturing processes, while others work on thermal development in GMÂs wind tunnel, among other jobs. Recent graduates who worked for GM are in college engineering programs now, and will be among the companyÂs top recruiting targets when they graduate.ÂŽCutthroat recruitingCousin, 25, now a PhD student at the University of Florida, said his internship at Eaton was the most aggressive and rewarding of half a dozen internships. He was encouraged to brainstorm ideas and given the resources to pursue them. He created a computer system that connected to an automobile engine physically and interface electronically. It essentially issues instructions to the engine that results in fuel savings. These days, automotive companies must be creative in a cutthroat recruiting environment. ÂCompanies are competing for the few engineering graduates coming out,ÂŽ said Larry Bennett, director, vehicle technologies and innovation at Eaton. ÂWe have always had interns and co-op students, but in the last three years, we put a strategy around it.ÂŽ Potential employers are seeing greater hunger today among students, he said. ÂTheyÂre willing to take career risks, rather than go into large wellestablished companies that provide the security of a long career of 30 years.ÂŽ Fact is, billionaire tech leaders Elon Musk of Tesla and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook are the role models. Not only is there interest in new technologies, but the combustion engine isnÂt going away anytime soon. ÂOur interns are asked to do serious work and every year they make valuable contributions to the business,ÂŽ said Meeta Huggins, chief diversity ofÂ“cer and talent acquisitions operations at Ford Motor Co. ÂAssignments from last yearÂs class ranged from calibrating vehicle transmissions to designing algorithms for energy management on hybrid vehicles.ÂŽ Jeff Brown, 24, a mechanical engineering student from Battle Creek, has been a Western Michigan University co-op student at Eaton for four years. He works full-time in the summer and part-time during the school year. ÂIÂve seen mistakes. IÂve had to redo things. And I see what it means to be part of the industry.ÂŽ He has been exposed to manufacturing, design, product development, hands-on technical experience. He has freedom to make decisions, propose solutions and work with engineers daily. His focus has been engine research that leads to better fuel economy and reducing greenhouse gases. Vanessa Liddell, 24, of Marshall accepted a job at Eaton in product engineering after graduating with a mechanical engineering degree from Kettering University. She works on projects involving medium and heavy duty transmissions used in tractor-trailers. ÂFor me, I wanted to feel like I was contributing and helping the business succeed, not just take up space,ÂŽ she said. ÂPlus, you learn soft skills in the workplace that enhance what you do in the classroom, like how to communicate well with diverse groups of people and global teams.ÂŽ She said she had more than one internship and they were very, very different. ÂEaton was inclusive, inviting, willing to sit down and teach me something to learn and grow.ÂŽTransportation Âcool againÂDeveloping young engineers is what Frank Menchaca does as chief product ofÂ“cer for the Society of Automotive Engineers, a global association based in Warrendale, Pa. ÂTransportation is cool again,ÂŽ he said. ÂStudents are understanding they can enter into a Â“eld that has decades potentially of expansion. They can work on automated and connected vehicles, which allows them to think about smart cities, cyber security, the introduction of technology so the car can communicate with other cars. Revolutionary things are happening in the transportation industry. And thatÂs creating tremendous energy.ÂŽ Ann Zuzuly, 26, a lead software engineer for EatonÂs Vehicle Group, talks with high school students in southeast Michigan about aerodynamics and the impact on fuel economy and how it all relates to design. ÂIt helps when students are able to interact with a real engineer. I donÂt think a lot of students really know what engineering is. We have to get them excited about it.ÂŽ Young engineers are breathing strength and life into an already vibrant and evolving industry. ÂTheyÂre open-minded, they bring new vantage points,ÂŽ said Jim McCarthy, chief engineer for vehicle technologies and innovation at Eaton. ÂIÂve challenged more people in the last Â“ve years than 10 years ago. IÂve challenged students beyond their means.ÂŽ And they meet the challenge. He noted with awe the intern Christian Cousin who helped make a cylinder deactivation controller for a diesel engine. Most nonengineers have no idea what that even means. Eaton is a power management company that focuses on electrical products, electrical systems, hydraulics, aerospace and vehicles. The Michigan team alone sees hundreds of applications for internships every year. McCarthy said Eaton, a global company that saw $20 billion in sales in 2017, proudly included three student speakers among Â“ve engineering presentations for a national conference in April 2018. ÂUnprecedented,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou normally donÂt put up someone who doesnÂt have a bachelorÂs degree.ÂŽ His student, Brown, bristled at the idea of standing up in front of more than 50 engineers. ÂHe said, ÂI donÂt know if I want to do that. What if IÂm bad?Â Â McCarthy said. ÂI said, ÂIf youÂre bad, youÂre a senior in college. But if youÂre good, youÂre a senior in college. You canÂt lose.Â And he was brilliant.ÂŽ Corporate leaders are seeing a new breed of engineer, seeking mentors and colleagues with an approach not seen in memory. Engineering students say they want to learn about success, failure and not giving up. At Eaton, Bennett jokes that he went to Western University to play second base and didnÂt make the baseball team. He entered a pilot program but the son of a telescope maintenance mechanic couldnÂt afford the required Â”ight classes so he enrolled in aviation engineering to follow what he loved. Students talk of friendships made with engineers and discussions that impact their career choices. ÂThis generation is deÂ“nitely showing much more of an interest in innovation and doing something new,ÂŽ said Dr. Craig Hoff, dean of the College of Engineering at Kettering. ÂIÂve talked to recent alums at a couple different automakers. They told me how they loved their jobs. Thirty years ago, engineers were not telling me they loved their jobs.Â When he asks what inspires the passion, young engineers say theyÂre being encouraged to rethink ideas previously accepted as gospel. ÂTheyÂre not getting beat up if they have a bad idea that doesnÂt work. TheyÂre being encouraged to be innovative. TheyÂre given time to work on projects,ÂŽ Hoff said. ÂIf you look at Ford and GM and others, theyÂre redoing the whole landscape of their ofÂ“ce, making it more Google-like. ItÂs a pretty happy situation.ÂŽCutting-edge companies fighting over students hungry for challengeBy PHOEBE WALL HOWARDDETROIT FREE PRESS PHOTO PROVIDEDCompanies are competing to recruit engineering interns. DALLAS Â„ Like fax machines and desktop telephones, your individual ofÂ“ce workspace may be headed for extinction. More than half of corporate execs say they plan to switch to unassigned worker seating for all or some of their employees during the next three years. Instead of having their own desks, workers will grab an empty workstation when they come to the ofÂ“ce in the morning. DonÂt be late to work, or you could wind up sitting by the dumpster. ItÂs just one of the ways that employers are shaking up the traditional ofÂ“ce environment to cut costs and Â„ supposedly Â„ increase productivity, according to a new report by commercial real estate Â“rm CBRE. In the last decade, business employers have increasingly shifted from individual ofÂ“ces to open work environments. They usually say the moves are to increase collaboration among workers. But major ofÂ“ce users also acknowledge they are slashing real estate costs with these shifts. At a growing number of ofÂ“ce centers, including JPMorgan ChaseÂs new campus in Plano and Liberty Mutual Insurance across the street, many workers donÂt have assigned desks and keep their personal items in a locker or cabinet when they leave. ÂThe modern workplace is in a state of transition as workplace design standards have evolved from traditional layouts with a mix of enclosed and open workspaces,ÂŽ CBRE research analyst Julie Whelan said in the new report. ÂManaging employees through this change is critical, so that the initiative is viewed as being additive to productivity and wellness instead of a pure cost-cutting measure.ÂŽ The moves, it appears, are only partially to build teamwork and promote employee networking. More than 50 percent of Â“rms say their primary reason for the ofÂ“ce changes is to reduce costs. Only 20 percent of companies said they are going to the new ofÂ“ce environments to promote innovation. And less than a third say the changes are to retain and attract talent Â„ something we keep hearing from big corporations. CBRE surveyed mostly banking and Â“nance, tech and telecom and professional service Â“rms about their ofÂ“ce plans. Almost half of the companies said they planned to make workplace changes to seek better space utilization. Less than half of the companies said they plan to allocate primary assigned worker seating in the years ahead. Not all trends are as utilitarian. To keep their workers happy, ofÂ“ce users say they plan to ramp up their workplace amenities, including full-service cafeterias, employee showers, bike racks for commuters, custom coffee services, green space, game rooms and on-site health care.

The News Wire Sunday, May 27, 2018 STATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHER Scouts honor veterans for Memorial Day with gravesite flagsSee page 8 ST. PETERSBURG Â„ Florida and Mississippi launched emergency preparations Saturday ahead of the arrival of Subtropical Storm Alberto, a slow-moving system expected to cause wet misery across the eastern U.S. Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend. Cuba was being pounded by rain along its western coast, raising the threat of Â”ash Â”oods and mudslides. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the islandÂs rain totals could reach 10 to 15 inches Â„ and even 25 inches in isolated areas. Heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday. The Florida Keys could see as much as 10 inches of rain, the hurricane center said. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of Florida and Alabama. About 5 to 10 inches of rain are possible along affected areas in eastern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, western Tennessee and the western Florida Panhandle. Isolated areas could see as much as 15 inches. Under overcast skies and occasional drizzle, several Gulfport, Mississippi, residents lined up to Â“ll 10and 20-pound bags with sand they will use to block any encroaching Â”oodwater expected as a result of Alberto. Tommy Whitlock said HONOLULU (AP) Â„ Damage to the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu was worse than expected and it will remain closed indeÂ“nitely, ofÂ“cials said. Boat transportation to the attraction was suspended May 6 after one of the vessel operators noticed a crack on the outside of the memorial, Hawaii News Now reported Tourists were allowed to disembark at the memorial after crews completed interim repairs. But the cracks reappeared hours later, indicating a more serious issue. ÂThere is a brow or an edge where the visitor ramp meets the memorial, and at that point, thereÂs been some Â“ssures located on the exterior,ÂŽ said Jay Blount, a spokesman for the World War II Valor in the PaciÂ“c National Monument. ÂAfter further investigation on the interior, it was determined that the structure is not supporting the loading ramp the way that we need.ÂŽ Engineers are working to Â“gure out Gulf in state of emergency as Alberto heads northBy TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSSEOUL, South Korea Â„ The leaders of North and South Korea met Saturday in an effort to resurrect talks between Washington and Pyongyang, continuing their close coordination despite the apparent breakdown in U.S.-North Korean diplomacy. White House ofÂ“cials said they were informed of the two-hour meeting in advance, and indicated that they remain open to a direct summit between President Donald Trump and North KoreaÂs leader, Kim Jong Un. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced Saturday morning that a logistical team bound for Singapore, led by TrumpÂs deputy chief of staff, Joe Hagin, Âwill leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place.ÂŽ And Trump suggested in a Saturday Twitter post that he remained eager as well, pushing back against an unidentiÂ“ed ofÂ“cial from the White House who called the June 12 summit date ÂimpossibleÂŽ for logistical reasons. ÂWRONG AGAIN!ÂŽ Trump wrote. The meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in was revealed by the South Korean presidentÂs ofÂ“ce. The apparent purpose was to continue inter-Korean dialogue and to salvage a potential meeting between Kim and Trump, who this past week canceled a scheduled summit in Singapore with the North. ÂThey exchanged opinions for implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration and for the successful realization of U.S.-North Korea summit,ÂŽ said Yoon Young-chan, a spokesman for Moon.With US talks in limbo, Korean leaders hold surprise summitUSS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor closedBy NOAH BIERMAN and MATT STILESLOS ANGELES TIMESDUBLIN Â„ In the end, it wasnÂt even close. Irish voters Â„ young and old, male and female, farming types and city-bred folk Â„ endorsed expunging an abortion ban from their largely Catholic countryÂs constitution by a two-toone margin, referendum results compiled Saturday showed. The decisive outcome of the landmark referendum held Friday exceeded expectations and was cast as a historic victory for womenÂs rights. Polls had given the pro-repeal ÂyesÂŽ side a small lead, but suggested the contest would be close. Since 1983, the now-repealed Eighth Amendment had forced women seeking to terminate pregnancies to go abroad for abortions, bear children conceived through rape or incest or take illegal measures at home. As the Â“nal tally was announced showing over 66 percent of voters supported lifting the ban, crowds in the ancient courtyard of Dublin Castle began chanting ÂSavita! Savita!ÂŽ in honor of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old dentist who died of sepsis during a protracted miscarriage after being denied an abortion at a Galway hospital in 2012. With exit polls showing a win for abortion rights campaigners, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called the apparent victory the Âculmination of a quiet revolution.ÂŽ Later, he hailed the momentous outcome as a victory for IrelandÂs future. ÂI said in recent days that this was a once in a generation vote. Today I believe we have voted for the next generation,ÂŽ said Varadkar, who is IrelandÂs Â“rst openly gay leader as well as its Â“rst prime minister from an ethnic minority group. The next battleground is likely to be IrelandÂs parliament, where the government led by Varadkar hopes to capitalize on the fresh momentum and enact legislation spelling out the conditions under which abortions will be legal for the Â“rst time by the end of this year. The plan is to allow abortions during the Â“rst WASHINGTON Â„ Joshua Holt, who traveled to Venezuela from Utah in 2016 to marry a Spanishspeaking Mormon woman but soon found himself jailed and later branded the CIAÂs top spy in Latin America, was set free by the anti-American Maduro government on Saturday in what his family called Âthis miracle.ÂŽ The release of Holt and his wife, Thamara Caleno, and their departure for Washington came one day after an inÂ”uential U.S. senator held a surprise meeting in Caracas with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who the Trump administration says runs a ÂdictatorshipÂŽ and just won re-election in a ÂshamÂŽ vote. Their get-together was the result of months of secret, backchannel talks between an aide to Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and close allies of Maduro. Yet HoltÂs release had seemed unlikely even a week ago. President Donald Trump, in a tweet, described Holt as a ÂhostageÂŽ and said he expected to host Holt and his family ÂQuiet revolutionÂ leads to abortion rights win in IrelandAmerican jailed in Venezuela for 2 years now on his way homeBy GREGORY KATZ, RENATA BRITO and LEO ENRIGHTASSOCIATED PRESSBy CATHERINE LUCEY and JOSHUA GOODMANASSOCIATED PRESS JAILED | 4 RIGHTS | 4 ALBERTO | 4 ARIZONA | 4SUMMIT | 4 HOLT FAMILY PHOTO VIA APIn this image provided by the Holt family, Joshua Holt, his wife Thamara and her daughter, board a plane at the airport in Caracas, Venezuela, Saturday.

Marches and rallies were also held in dozens of other French cities as part of the joint action against MacronÂs economic policies that organizers consider ÂbrutalÂŽ and imbalanced. At the Paris event, Philippe Martinez, head of leading French union CGT, advised the president to Âlook out the window of his palace to see real life.ÂŽ Police estimated that 21,000 people took part in the Paris protest, while CGT put the number at 80,000. More than 1,500 police ofÂ“cers were mobilized in the French capital to prevent activists not associated with the ofÂ“cial protest from disrupting the march and causing damage, which has happened during previous recent demonstrations. Police said they detained 39 people in Paris before and after the march started, including 26 were put into custody. Most of them were preemptively taken in for questioning after ofÂ“cers searched their bags and found ÂequipmentÂŽ that could be used to cause damage or to hide their faces. A few others, mainly youths dressed in black with their faces covered, were detained on the sidelines of the main protest for breaking a window at a business or damaging bus shelters. Police used tear gas canisters to push them back. Seven ofÂ“cers were slightly injured mainly by thrown debris. Unions, opposition parties and other groups were particularly denouncing a Macronled overhaul of labor rules that would reduce worker protections and laws increasing police powers. They allege that Macron supports tax reform that favors FranceÂs wealthiest and is working to tear down public services. They also oppose a government plan making it harder for students to attend the public universities of their choice, more restrictive immigration laws and police methods in underprivileged neighborhoods that protesters consider Ârepressive.ÂŽ In the southern port city of Marseille, Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the far-left DeÂ“ant France party, also addressed Macron while speaking to demonstrators. ÂIn the name of the poor, the humiliated, the homeless and the jobless, we are telling you, ÂEnough, enough of this world,ÂÂŽ Melenchon said. Macron, a centrist former investment banker, says his economic changes are meant to increase FranceÂs global competitiveness. In an interview with BFM TV on Friday, the French leader said that those who protest will not manage to Âblock the country.ÂŽ ÂNo disorder will stop me, and calm will return,ÂŽ Macron said.Thousands across France protest MacronÂs ÂbrutalÂ policiesBy PHILIPPE SOTTOASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOProtesters holding ares take part of an afternoon march against President Emmanuel MacronÂs pro-business reforms and to demand more social justice in Paris, Saturday.

US warns Syrian government not to advance on south Putin and Abe discuss Kuril Islands, WWII peace treaty 7 bodies found in central Mexico Head of Chilean churchÂs anti-abuse panel resignsBEIRUT Â„ The United States warned it would take ÂÂ“rm and appropriate measuresÂŽ to protect a cease-Â“re in southern Syria if President Bashar AssadÂs forces move against rebels there. The area in southwestern Syria, between the border city of Daraa and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, has emerged as a Â”ashpoint in a wider standoff between regional archrivals Israel and Iran. The U.S., Russia, and Jordan agreed last year to include Daraa in a Âde-escalation zoneÂŽ to freeze the lines of conÂ”ict. But government forces have recently dropped leaÂ”ets on rebel-held areas warning of an imminent offensive and urging Â“ghters to lay down their arms, Syrian state media said Friday. In a statement released Friday, the U.S. State Department said it was concerned by reports that AssadÂs forces were preparing for an operation in southwestern Syria. It warned the government against Âany actions that risk broadening the conÂ”ict.ÂŽ Assad has relied on Russia, Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah to battle an uprising against his familyÂs decades-long rule and roll-back an Islamic State insurgency that grew out of the countryÂs seven-year civil war. Iran has sent military commanders to oversee battles and organize militias from across the Middle East to Â“ght alongside AssadÂs troops. LeaÂ”ets dropped on northern Daraa, which is divided between rebel and government-controlled areas, warned: ÂThe men of the Syrian army are coming.ÂŽ MOSCOW (AP) Â„ Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met in Moscow on Saturday for talks that included resolving a dispute over four PaciÂ“c islands and eventually signing a peace treaty. Abe has been pushing for a way forward in the dispute that centers on the four most southern of the Kuril Islands, which Japan calls the Northern Territories. The Soviet Union took the islands in the closing days of World War II. The dispute has kept the two countries from signing a peace treaty formally ending World War II hostilities. Japan is seeking to implement joint business projects on the Kuril Islands as a way to gain momentum to resolve the dispute. ÂThe Japanese and the Russians will be able to reap the fruits of the joint work on the islands,ÂŽ Abe said. ÂIf we cooperate, we can achieve great results that bring mutual beneÂ“t.ÂŽ Putin said after the meeting that a Japanese business delegation would visit the islands this year. MEXICO CITY (AP) Â„ Mexican ofÂ“cials in the central state of Guanajuato say seven bodies have been found in the city of Salamanca and they appear to be members of a criminal organization. The state attorney generalÂs ofÂ“ce says three of the victims were shot, and they have been identiÂ“ed. Four others also were found Friday Â„ dismembered in black plastic bags in two separate locations, on the side of a highway and in a neighborhood. Written messages from a rival gang were found next to the bags. The agency spokesman declined to name the alleged criminal groups, but said they sell drugs and stolen gasoline. SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) Â„ The president of the Chilean Catholic ChurchÂs Commission for the Prevention of Abuses has resigned after acknowledging he was slow to investigate allegations of misconduct in his diocese. The churchÂs Episcopal Conference announced Saturday it had accepted the resignation by Rancagua Bishop Alejandro Goic. He remains bishop of the diocese. Its statement says that ÂdifÂ“culties that have occurred in the diocese he leads have made this determination necessary.ÂŽ Fourteen priests in GoicÂs diocense have been temporarily suspended over the past week. A week ago, Goic apologized for failing to promptly investigate a reported case of sexual abuse in his diocese. Every bishop in the South American country has offered to resign over what Pope Francis said was their negligence in protecting children. | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD POOL PHOTO VIA APJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, right, shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting in Moscow, Russia, Saturday.

Five seismic survey companies want federal permission to shoot loud, pressurized air blasts into the ocean every 10 to 12 seconds aroundthe-clock for months at a time over 330,000 square miles of ocean from Florida to the Delaware bay, in search of fossil fuel deposits beneath the ocean Â”oor. If approved, the activity would reverse an Obamaera denial of testing permits in the Atlantic Ocean and represent a major advance of TrumpÂs ÂAmerica-First Offshore Energy Strategy.ÂŽ After the public-comment period ended in July 2017, many stakeholders expected the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to quickly approve the Âincidental harassment authorizationsÂŽ needed to move the permit applications forward. But more than 10 months later, NOAA, one of two federal agencies that will decide the matter, still hasnÂt approved the authorizations. The IHA would allow the seismic testing to harass or injure small numbers of marine mammals, which would otherwise be prohibited under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Scientists fear long-term exposure to air-blast noise could cause hearing loss and impair breeding, feeding, foraging and communication activity among dolphins, endangered whales, other marine mammals and sea turtles. While the Marine Mammal Protection Act sets a 120-day statutory review period to decide IHA applications, some require more analysis, consultation and resources that can exceed the 4-month time period. From 2011 through 2016, the average processing time for IHA applications was 7.5 months, according to written Senate testimony from Chris Oliver, assistant administrator for Â“sheries at NOAA. But after executive orders from Trump called for reducing regulatory burden, NOAA committed to cutting IHA processing times. Since implementing new streamlining measures, like waiving legal reviews for Âlow impact/ low controversy actions not expected to be at risk of litigation,ÂŽ the average processing time overall fell to 6.6 months for IHAs issued from December 2016 to November 2017, OliverÂs written testimony said. The authorizations for the Atlantic, however, are proving more of a challenge. ÂWeÂre in the process of evaluating over 117,000 comments that we received on that, many of them of a highly technical, legal, policy nature. So that process has taken a little bit longer than we expect. But we expect within the next few weeks to have made a decision on those authorizations,ÂŽ Oliver told a Senate panel on April 25. One month later, the energy industry is still waiting. And it is openly chiding the Trump administration over the slow process. In a recent blog post, Nikki Martin, president of the International Association of Geophysical Contractors and Randall Luthi, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, said the permitting Âdelay is a complete bureaucratic breakdown by federal agencies in what should be an otherwise straightforward process. ÂApprove or deny is simple and clear.ÂŽ If the authorizations are granted, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management would then have to complete an environmental study before they decide whether to approve the Â“nal testing permits. There is no timeline for the environmental study. While some lawmakers and business leaders have raised concerns about the economic effect that seismic testing and offshore drilling could have on Atlantic Coast toursim and Â“shing, the energy industry has largely cheered President TrumpÂs push to expand offshore drilling. In January, the Interior Department announced plans to hold 47 offshore oil and gas lease sales from 2019 to 2024. That includes 19 off the coast of Alaska, seven off the coast of California, 12 in the Gulf of Mexico and nine in the Atlantic Ocean, where there have been no sales since 1983 and there are no existing leases. Seismic testing became a moot issue after President Barack Obama removed the Atlantic Ocean from the nationÂs Â“ve-year program for oil and gas development in March 2016. Later that year, Obama also barred drilling in environmentally sensitive areas of the Atlantic from Virginia to Maine. Then, in one of its Â“nal acts, the Obama administration in January 2017 denied all pending Atlantic Ocean testing permits. But Trump signed an executive order in April 2017 that would reverse these policies. In addition to opening up millions of acres of coastal waters for oil and gas leasing, Trump also called for streamlining the application process for seismic testing permits. A December 2017 GAO report found that National Marine Fisheries Service, a division of NOAA, couldnÂt accurately provide the dates when they determined IHA applications were Âadequate and completeÂŽ because the agency doesnÂt specify how or when staff should record this data. The agency is currently working on that new guidance, according to OliverÂs testimony. But the regulatory delays are taking a toll. ÂConsidering that the Marine Mammal Protection Act, or MMPA, requires agencies to issue decisions within 120 days after deeming IHA applications complete, this delay is a shocking policy failure,ÂŽ Martin and LuthiÂs blog post said. Luthi, Martin and representatives of other industry groups, like the American Petroleum Institute and the International Association of Drilling Contractors, support passage of the Streamlining Environmental Approvals Act (HR 3133), sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La. The legislation would amend the Marine Mammal Protection Act and deem permit applications dealing with offshore oil and gas exploration to be ÂapprovedÂŽ if the processing time exceeded 120 days. The bill, which was assailed by environmental groups for weakening protections for marine mammals, was passed by the House Committee on Natural Resources in January. But it hasnÂt been voted on by the full House where Democrats and some coastal state Republicans oppose seismic testing as a prelude to offshore drilling. In an email statement, Oceana, an international ocean conservation group, said scrapping the Âsmall numbersÂŽ requirement in the Marine Mammals Protection Act would Âremove one of the precautionary standards that Congress recognized is necessary to prevent the extinctionÂŽ of marine mammals. ÂWe cannot trade away protections for our treasured marine life just because the oil and gas industry sometimes Â“nds them inconvenient,ÂŽ wrote Diane Hoskins, OceanaÂs campaign director. In his testimony, Oliver said the NOAA is considering other ideas to further streamline the permitting process. These include increasing the maximum time period for IHAs beyond the current one-year limit and removing the requirement that only Âsmall numbersÂŽ of marine mammals can be harassed or injured under an IHA. The agency is also considering removing the requirement that IHAs apply only in a ÂspeciÂ“ed geographical region.ÂŽ ÂThere may be circumstances where the impacts of an activity on marine mammals is similar across multiple regions,ÂŽ OliverÂs written testimony said.Delayed seismic testing decision puts energy industry at odds with Trump administrationBy TONY PUGHMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU LAS VEGAS Â„ Firsthand accounts by Las Vegas police ofÂ“cers about their roles in the mass shooting last October that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds at an outdoor concert were released this week, offering a new perspective on the deadliest mass shooting in modern America. It was the third major release this month in response to a public records request and a court ruling requiring the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to provide documents, body camera footage and 911 call records. WednesdayÂs release of about 2,000 pages included more witness statements and interviews with staff at the Mandalay Bay hotel Â„ where the shooter was staying and carried out the slaughter. More materials are expected to be released in the coming weeks. Dozens of the ofÂ“cersÂ reports paint a harrowing Â„ yet often a more clinical Â„ view of what happened that night when Stephen Paddock opened Â“re from his 32nd-Â”oor suite Â„ taking aim at 22,000 attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. OfÂ“cers described feeling fear. One questioned God. Amid the chaos, another recounted remembering seemingly trivial items Â„ like a victim looking for his friend while still clutching a can of Bud Light. Some of the reports are short Â„ just a few lines. Others are detailed, with a few leading into the shooting by describing what they were doing prior to tragedy. One was busting prostitutes. Another was on a jog near his home. Some were working security for a Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL preseason game. One ofÂ“cer had spent the day celebrating his childÂs birthday. There were accounts of bravery and heroism amid the tragedy, and some ofÂ“cers used their reports to praise the actions of others Â„ including a recruit at the scene who began performing Â“rst aid immediately. But there were also accounts of frustration at some who got in the way of Â“rst responders. None imagined what they were going to see that night. A few ofÂ“cers noted having to decide on the spot whether to help the wounded or try to stop the shooter. One report included ideas for tactics that might have helped save lives, including the use of smoke canisters that could have made it harder for Paddock to pick out targets. There were accounts of hospitals overÂ”owing with patients. ÂThe hospital went from smelling like blood and death to smelling of bleach,ÂŽ an ofÂ“cer observed. Here is a sampling of what some saw and how they felt responding to the Oct. 1 shooting: ÂI was terriÂ“ed. I questioned God, ÂWhy?Â Why am I going to die today? I donÂt want to die. This is what I was trained for? I have to see this? Why? I donÂt want to do this anymore. I thought, ÂI want to run, look thereÂs a Â“eld, you can run, Â“nd a street, call a cab, leave, go home!ÂÂŽ OfÂ“cer A. Mitre wrote. ÂThen I said to myself, Âhow hard have you worked, the academy, the badge, the love you have for people, you have to help, you might die, thatÂs okay, you canÂt go, you have to stop the threat, you have to save them.ÂÂŽ ÂAt this point, I believed I would probably die, as all I had was concealment from a fabric tent,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer P. Zaragoza wrote. ÂI continued to make tourniquets, overwhelmed by seemingly dozens of individuals bleeding out, waited for a pause in the gunÂ“re so I could run to gear up, and hoped that if I was shot, it would be in my body, not my head.ÂŽ ÂThe Â“rst victim I came across was a female in her 20s not breathing,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer D. Hunkins wrote. ÂI immediately started chest compressions and an unknown male was giving the victim breaths. We worked for several minutes on the female before a member of Medic West checked her vitals. The medic stated: ÂÂShe is dead. Move on.ÂÂŽ Â(OfÂ“cer) Mark (Bordoni) and I kept going back and forth trying to Â“gure out where the shots were coming from,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer K. Bryant wrote. ÂI remember very clearly thinking, Âthis is it. I only have my Glock 40 caliber and IÂm probably up against a fully stocked assault team with tactical gear. I thought about my wife and kids, would I ever see them again. I looked to my right and there were three or four men doing chest compressions on a female who had been shot in the head. IÂve seen enough death in my 15 years on the job that I knew she was gone, but I was not about to say anything to those brave men.ÂŽ ÂAround 10:39 p.m. I called my family and said, ÂIÂm ok.ÂÂŽ OfÂ“cer J. Parker wrote. ÂI must have sounded not ok though.ÂŽ ÂAs I got home I found it was hard to process what had happened. I just sat in my bed thinking that I hoped what IÂve done was enough,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer S. Quijano wrote. ÂAt this time, a highly intoxicated (man) standing at approximately 6Â0ÂŽ with a medium build wearing a baby blue polo shirt, having a buzzed haircut and a thin moustache approached me from behind,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer A. Loos wrote. ÂHe shouted that he was a combat vet and that I should give him my riÂ”e as he emerged from behind the cover of the patrol car and Â”ipped off the shooter. I grabbed him and pulled him back to safety, he promptly stood up again and continued to Â”ip off the shooter. I pulled him back a second time and he demanded my patrol riÂ”e again. He then grabbed onto my riÂ”e with both hands in an attempt to wrest it away from me. I punched him one time in the jaw with my left hand causing him to let go and lay down Â”at on his back in a supine position.ÂŽ ÂI could feel my mouth was extremely dry and cotton mouth and I had no spit. I also felt myself starting to get tunnel vision and I can remember concentrating on tactical breathing to calm myself,ÂŽ Field Training OfÂ“cer C. Hendrex wrote about searching for the shooter on the 31st-Â”oor of the Mandalay Bay. ÂDespite the carnage all around us, some people did not seem to understand the danger they were in,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer C. Cooney wrote. ÂI even observed two men in the crowd get into a Â“st Â“ght for unknown reasons. One of the men was punched unconscious by the other and two other men dragged the man to safety.ÂŽ ÂI may not know for some time who you all were but I will Â“nd you and make sure I get to thank you personally,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer Bryce Martines wrote. ÂSergeant Hee, who was aware of the fact (name redacted) and I were at the scene of the carnage, did an amazing job in making sure we were okay,ÂŽ OfÂ“cer Brennan Childers wrote. ÂIn the days following, he went above and beyond for us. I was born and raised in this city, and this was a devastating day for me. Since then, I have been overwhelmed by the community outreach, the stories of heroism and the overall emotion associated with this call.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) Â„ Someone has paid big bucks for some vintage denim in Maine. An auctioneer in Maine said the 125-year-old jeans that failed to sell at auction in 2016 now have a new owner somewhere in southeast Asia. Daniel Buck Soules from Daniel Buck Auctions in Lisbon Falls said the Levi Strauss & Co. blue jeans from the American Old West sold for nearly $100,000. He said his agreement with the buyer precluded him from providing the buyerÂs location or the exact cost of those jeans. The cotton jeans with button Â”y were worn only a few times. They were purchased in 1893 by a store keeper in the Arizona Territory and ended up spending decades in a trunk.

ÂUnder the Eighth Amendment, the only thing we could say to women in this country was ÂTake a Â”ight or take a boat,ÂÂŽ Health Minister Simon Harris told Irish broadcaster RTE. ÂAnd now the country is saying, ÂNo, take our hands, we want to support you.ÂÂŽ Some called for the new abortion legislation to be named, ÂSavitaÂs law.ÂŽ Her father, Andanappa Yalagi, said he has Âno wordsÂŽ to express his gratitude for IrelandÂs ÂyesÂŽ vote. ÂWeÂve got justice for Savita,ÂŽ he told the Hindustan Times. ÂWhat happened to her will not happen to any other family.ÂŽ It is not yet clear how hard the soundly defeated ÂnoÂŽ forces will Â“ght for restrictive laws in parliament in light of the overwhelming appetite for reform. Opponents of the repeal movement conceded defeat Saturday morning after exit polls from the night before suggested they had no hope of victory. John McGuirk, spokesman for the Save the 8th group, told RTE that many Irish citizens would not recognize the country in which they were waking up. The group said on its website that the referendum was a Âtragedy of historic proportions,ÂŽ but McGuirk said the vote must still be respected. ÂYou can still passionately believe that the decision of the people is wrong, as I happen to do, and accept it,ÂŽ he said. The Â“nal tally showed that just over 66 percent of voters who cast valid ballots wanted the Eighth Amendment abolished. Exit polls indicated that both men and women strongly opposed the abortion ban, and that opposition to it was strong in rural areas, not just cosmopolitan Dublin. The support for lifting the ban highlights the liberalization of traditionally Catholic Ireland, marking the diminishing inÂ”uence of the Church hierarchy and a desire to align Irish secular laws with the other countries of Europe. First it was same-sex marriage, approved here in 2015, and now it will be the consignment to history of the Eighth Amendment, which banned nearly all abortions and turned women seeking them into pariahs. ÂThis is a monumental day for women in Ireland,ÂŽ Orla OÂConnor, co-director of the Together for Yes group, said. ÂThis is about women taking their rightful place in Irish society, Â“nally.ÂŽ The mood was jubilant at DublinÂs Intercontinental Hotel, where supporters of the Together For Yes group spent hours watching the vote tally come in from the countryÂs 40 districts. In the end, 39 voted for repeal. Some supporters had tears of joy running down their cheeks, and many women hugged each other. Cheers erupted every time partial results were shown on two big screens transmitting the latest television news. When the Â“nal count was announced at Dublin Castle, more than 1,000 people were gathered outside singing, chanting and toasting each other with champagne despite an intermittent light rain. They cheered when leaders of the ÂyesÂŽ campaign surfaced and they cheered for the prime minister when he arrived. For many, the victory was vindication after years of opposing the abortion ban, which required Irish authorities to defend the lives of a woman and a fetus as equals under the law from the moment of conception. In practical terms, the amendment outlawed all abortions until 2014, when terminations in rare cases when a womanÂs life was at risk started being allowed. Irish Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone said she was deeply moved by the vote. The vote in the Republic of Ireland may increase pressure on Northern Ireland to follow suit. When abortion becomes legal in the Republic of Ireland, it will become the only part of Britain and Ireland to ban the procedure. Abortions approved by doctors are allowed in the rest of Britain until the 24th week of pregnancy, but not in Northern Ireland, where the procedure is limited to cases when a womanÂs life is at risk. IrelandÂs prime minister noted that SaturdayÂs win for legalizing abortion could not right past wrongs, but could prevent future ones. ÂThe wrenching pain of decades of mistreatment of Irish women cannot be unlived,ÂŽ Varadkar, who backed repeal, said. ÂHowever, today we have ensured that it does not have to be lived again.ÂŽRIGHTSFROM PAGE 1at the White House on Saturday evening. ÂGood news about the release,ÂŽ he wrote. The U.S. contended Holt was held on trumped up charges. The White House learned from Corker, R-Tenn., on Friday of HoltÂs impending release, according to a U.S. ofÂ“cial who has closely followed HoltÂs plight and spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private talks. Holt and his wife were reunited at the Caracas airport with her daughter from a previous relationship, and all three boarded a chartered Â”ight to Washington. ÂWe are on our way home,ÂŽ Corker tweeted. VenezuelaÂs communications minister, Jorge Rodriguez, said their release was a goodwill gesture that followed months of dialogue between the Maduro government and U.S. lawmakers. ÂWeÂre praying that this type of gesture ... will allow us to strengthen what weÂve always sought: dialogue, harmony, respect for our independence and respect for our sovereignty,ÂŽ he said. Holt, now 26, set out for the South American country in June 2016 to marry a woman he met online while he was looking for Spanishspeaking Mormons who could help him improve his Spanish. He had planned to spend several months in Caracas that summer with his new wife and her two daughters, to secure their visas so they could move with him to the U.S. Instead, the couple was arrested that June 30 at her familyÂs apartment in a government housing complex on the outskirts of Caracas. Authorities accused him of stockpiling an assault riÂ”e and grenades, and suggested that his case was linked to other unspeciÂ“ed U.S. attempts to undermine MaduroÂs rule amid deep economic and political turbulence. They were held in a notorious Caracas prison, run by the secret police, that also is home to dozens of top Maduro opponents jailed during the past few years of political unrest in the country. Their trial was set to begin this month after repeated delays that led the Trump administration to question the motives for his detention. Until TrumpÂs tweet on Saturday, the U.S. had stopped short of publicly calling Holt a Âhostage.ÂŽ HoltÂs release looked unlikely a week ago, when he appeared in a clandestinely shot video railing against the Maduro government and saying his life was threatened in a prison riot. In retaliation, socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello, a powerful Maduro ally, said on state television that Holt was the CIAÂs top spy in Latin America. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who has TrumpÂs ear on Latin America issues and spoke to Trump at length Friday night, said the coupleÂs release Âwill in no way change U.S. policy toward the dictatorship in Venezuela.ÂŽ The Trump administration has threatened crippling oil sanctions on Venezuela for MaduroÂs decision to go forward with the presidential election last week. The U.S. government at Â“rst avoided ratcheting up public pressure on Venezuela in light of their already strained relations, but eventually raised HoltÂs case with the highest levels of the Venezuelan government and decried his treatment in prison. Corker was seen live on state TV on Friday shaking hands with Maduro and being greeted by Â“rst lady Cilia Flores as he entered the presidential palace. Corker left an hour later; neither the senator nor the president made any statements. HoltÂs mother, Laurie Holt, said her son and his wife were wrongly accused. She worked feverishly to bring attention to her sonÂs incarceration, hosting rallies, fundraisers and doing media interviews. Laurie Holt said her son has suffered numerous health problems in jail, including kidney stones and respiratory problems. He was depressed and at one point lost so much weight that he dropped several pant sizes, she said. In their statement, the Holt family said, ÂWe thank you for your collaboration during this time of anguish. We ask that you allow us to meet with our son and his wife before giving any interviews and statements. We are grateful to all who participated in this miracle.ÂŽJAILEDFROM PAGE 1 sandbagging has become a usual event in his life since he lives next to a creek.

Alberto Â„ the Â“rst named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that ofÂ“cially starts June 1 Â„ is expected to strengthen until it reaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely on Monday night. The NWS said waves as high as 18 feet could pound the popular Gulf beaches in Baldwin County, Alabama, and northwestern Florida on Monday. A high surf warning was in effect through 7 p.m. Tuesday local time. At 5 p.m. EDT Saturday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Alberto was about 95 miles north of the western tip of Cuba and moving north at 13 mph. The storm had top sustained winds of 40 mph and was expected to strengthen as it moves over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less deÂ“ned and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes. A tropical storm warning remained in effect for CubaÂs western Pinar del Rio province, where heavy rains could trigger Â”ash Â”oods and mudslides, the National Hurricane Center said. Mexico canceled its watch for the resort-dotted coast of the Yucatan peninsula, where the storm brought heavy rain. There were no immediate reports of emergencies. In Cancun, local newspapers showed scenes of some streets Â”ooded to mid-hubcap level. The downpours could dampen Memorial Day, the unofÂ“cial start of the summer tourist season along Gulf beaches. Along with heavy rains and high winds come rough seas and a threat of rip currents from Florida to Louisiana that can sweep swimmers out to sea.ALBERTOFROM PAGE 1The U.S. still has 28,000 troops, several military bases and defensive anti-missile systems scattered throughout South Korea. But Moon, the son of North Korean war refugees who rose to power last year and has staked his presidency on the prospect of inter-Korean peace, might also be trying to secure his own commitments from the North Â„ even if talks with Trump go nowhere. Moon has been careful during the past few months of whirlwind diplomacy to frequently credit Trump for the opening of talks with North Korea. Nonetheless, strains between the allies have periodically become noticeable. Trump did not inform the South Koreans before canceling the summit Thursday. White House ofÂ“cials said Trump feared that the news would leak if he informed allies. The White House released his letter to Kim scrubbing the summit soon after Moon landed back in Seoul after a visit to Washington, where he had met with Trump. Robert Palladino, a U.S. national security spokesman, said Saturday that high-level White House ofÂ“cials were notiÂ“ed of MoonÂs meeting in advance, though he would not say whether the White House requested it, helped script it or was given an option to call it off. Moon and Kim met at Tongilgak, a negotiation site on the North Korean side of Panmunjom, the diplomatic outpost on the border separating the two countries, which are still technically at war. Moon was greeted by Kim Yo Jong, the North Korean leaderÂs sister, who made a splash in South Korea by attending the Winter Olympics. A top North Korean diplomat and former spy chief for the totalitarian state, Kim Yong Chol, also attended the meeting. The two leaders posed for pictures together, embracing for a hug, during the meeting. SaturdayÂs meeting was only the fourth time Â„ but the second in a month Â„ that leaders from the North and South have met directly. The two nations have remained estranged since the Korean War, and tensions between them had risen in recent years as the North sought to advance its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. Representatives of the Blue House, the South Korean presidentÂs ofÂ“cial residence, declined to comment on which nation initiated SaturdayÂs meeting. In calling off the June 12 summit with Kim, Trump had accused the government in Pyongyang of Âopen hostility.ÂŽ On Friday, however, he said talks with North Korean ofÂ“cials had resumed. He expressed cautious optimism that the meeting could be held after all. TrumpÂs conciliatory turn followed a statement by KimÂs government saying it regretted TrumpÂs action and remained willing to talk. Trump called that Âa very nice statement.ÂŽ The chief sticking point for the two nations is WashingtonÂs insistence that North Korea, which has amassed as many as 60 nuclear weapons and long-range missiles to deliver them, must immediately begin total denuclearization. North Korea has not been willing to commit to eliminating its nuclear arsenal, which Kim, his father and his grandfather, who preceded him as leader, have spent more than half a century acquiring.SUMMITFROM PAGE 1 possible long-term solutions.

Munger added, Â... itÂs just dementia,ÂŽ explaining the popularity of cryptocurrencies this way: ÂItÂs like somebody else is trading turds, and you decide (you) canÂt be left out.ÂŽ Â€ On health care in America: Buffett noted that health care costs make up around 18 percent of AmericaÂs GDP, up from just 5 percent in 1960, repeating that medical costs are Âthe tapewormÂŽ of American economic competitiveness. Munger noted that once Democrats have more control in Washington, a single-payer health care system will likely result. Meanwhile, Berkshire is teaming up with Amazon.com and JPMorgan Chase to try to develop a better and lowercost health care system for their employees. WeÂll offer more on Buffett next week. In the meantime, read his educational (and often entertaining) annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.)The Motley Fool TakeA River of ProfitsAmazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) has seen its stock soar more than 2,000 percent over the past decade and more than 60 percent over the past year. From its thriving e-commerce business to its ridiculously profitable Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-computing segment, along with its acquisitions of Whole Foods Market and video-doorbell leader Ring, Amazon is truly firing on all cylinders. (Last year, AWS contributed 10 percent of AmazonÂs revenue Â„ and some believe the business could triple over the next five years.) AmazonÂs revenue last quarter skyrocketed 39 percent year over year (on a constant-currency basis) to a staggering $51 billion, with operating income jumping 92 percent. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has confirmed that the Amazon Prime service sports more than 100 million members. Those members not only enjoy the fast, free shipping on millions of items for which Prime is best known, but also have access to Prime Music, Prime Instant Video, discounts at Whole Foods and other little-known benefits. In fact, Amazon recently used those benefits to justify increasing the price of Prime by $20, to $119 per year, marking its first price hike in four years. With significant and accelerating growth drivers, Amazon.com is well worth considering as a long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Amazon.com. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley FoolÂs board of directors.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentOut of the Frying Pan Â„ and Back in AgainMy dumbest investment experience was when I couldnÂt place some trading orders I wanted to make because of problems with my brokerage. It required me to go into the office to sign a couple of forms. I got mad and transferred two of my accounts to two other well-known brokerages. Unfortunately, the other brokerages caused me grief, too, as it took a long time until I got the options trading rights that I wanted. One brokerageÂs online trading screen didnÂt allow for larger text to accommodate my poor eyesight, and the other brokerage surprised me with lots of extra fees Â„ while having a confusing and hard-to-use trading platform. I ended up moving those accounts back to my original brokerage. Â„ J.B., Camano Island, Washington The Fool Responds: YouÂre right to move your account if youÂre displeased with your brokerage and believe that a different one will serve you better. Most major brokerages get good marks on a host of factors. Be sure you assess many factors before settling on which brokerage to use. Consider trading commissions, but also think about whether you want a brick-and-mortar location and about minimum investments and fees youÂll face, among other things. It can be a good idea to call each candidateÂs customer service, too, to see how responsive and helpful it is. See if you can get a good look at how easy-to-use their online trading system seems to be, too. After Doubling, What?QWhen one of my stock holdings doubles in value, would it be smart to sell it and buy a different stock that looks more undervalued? Â„ D.B., St. Joseph, MichiganAMaybe Â„ but maybe not. Focus more on how o vervalued or undervalued you think the stock is and what you think of the companyÂs growth prospects than on how much it has grown.Do you believe it still has a lot of room to grow? If so, consider hanging on to all or some of your shares. The stocks of many great companies have doubled and doubled repeatedly over the years. On the other hand, if, after doing some research, youÂre not so sure about it, you might sell some or all of your shares, thereby locking in at least some gains. If you donÂt understand the companyÂs business very well, selling is smart. Meanwhile, if the stock has grown so much that it now makes up a significant chunk of your portfolioÂs total value, consider selling at least some shares so that you donÂt have too many eggs in that one basket. Even seemingly terrific companies fall on hard times Â„ you donÂt want too much of your money tied up in one stock.***QWhat do brokerages charge to buy or sell a stock? Â„ R.L., onlineAIn the old days, each trade could cost several hundred dollars. Today, though, many major brokerages charge commissions of around $7 or less per trade. They typically offer other services, too, such as stock research, banking and/or financial planning.DonÂt just focus on commission costs, though, when seeking a brokerage Â„ especially if you donÂt trade often.Want more information about stocks?

Here are some nuggets, paraphrased: Â€ On the big picture: Buffett reminded the crowd that when it comes to investing, we shouldnÂt get too distracted by the current state of the economy. The overriding question is how American business is going to do over your investing lifetime. If you are bullish on America and believe that its businesses will grow and prosper over time, then investing in the stock market should pay off. (A great way to do this is simply to invest in an S&P 500 index fund for many years.) Â€ On bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies: Buffett and Munger made it clear that theyÂre not big fans.

The Sun /Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I have the sweetest boyfriend IÂll call ÂEarl.ÂŽ HeÂs 58. IÂm a widow and have been with him for two years. Earl loves me, helps me and goes out with me wherever I want to go. One problem: He irts with other women. It can be family, neighbors, clerks, waitresses, etc. He calls them Âsweetheart,ÂŽ Âbaby,ÂŽ Âdarling,ÂŽ etc. He pours on the charm and even follows them around to help them with whatever they are doing. I am not threatened, but I get really embarrassed. I have also noticed that Earl has no male friends and seems to avoid them. When we are alone, itÂs all about me. He treats me wonderfully, but get another woman around and he goes nuts. WhatÂs going on with this man? Â„ PUT OFF IN PHOENIX DEAR PUT OFF: Earl may be less condent in the company of other men, or he may consider them competition for the attention of women. Or, he may need to constantly ingratiate and prove his attractiveness to himself. IÂm not going to attempt to psychoanalyze a man I have never met. Heck, itÂs hard enough to do when I know the person. If you really want to know whatÂs going on with Earl, ask HIM to explain it to you. DEAR ABBY: Please help settle a debate my wife and I are having. When making the bed, I always place the top sheet between the tted sheet and comforter with the nished side facing up. It seems logical. She insists the nished side should face down so that when you fold the top back near the pillows you see the nished side of the sheet. I get her point, but I just donÂt think thatÂs right. Which way should it go? Â„ SLEEPLESS IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR SLEEPLESS: If the sheet has attractive trim, why on Earth wouldnÂt you want to display it? IÂm voting with your wife. If you are ÂSleeplessÂŽ because you are arguing over which way the top sheet should face, thank your lucky stars itÂs not a pitched battle over something more serious. My solution would be: Whoever makes the bed gets to decide which way the sheet faces. DEAR ABBY: When a spouse dies, what should be done with the wedding bands? Â„ PLANNING AHEAD IN NEW ENGLAND DEAR PLANNING AHEAD: There is no right or wrong answer to a question like yours because getting past the loss of a loved life partner (grieving) is an individual process. ThatÂs why you should do whatever feels right to you. Some widows and widowers continue to wear their wedding band until they are ready to date again. Others move it to their right hand, or wear their spouseÂs ring on a chain around their neck. P.S. I once saw a woman wearing a gold band to which she had fused her deceased husbandÂs ring so that it sat at atop her ring nger. I thought the concept was clever, original and touching.

Â„Purchase a cleaner thatÂs made specically for glass tops and rub it onto the burned-on area with a paper towel. Â„Use a scraper blade to gently lift o any leftover gunk (be careful not to let the blade scratch the surface). Â„Clean the surface again. Â„Never apply harsh abrasives to this kind of range.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 NEW YORK Â„ Morgan Freeman says he likes to compliment people to make them feel at ease around him but that he has never sexually assaulted women. The Academy Awardwinning actor is Â“ghting back against charges of bad behavior made by multiple women in a CNN report this week. He said in a statement late Friday that the report has devastated him and that Âit is not right to equate horriÂ“c incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor.ÂŽ CNNÂs story includes one movie production assistant who said Freeman unsuccessfully tried to lift her skirt. Other women talked about unwanted touching on their backs and shoulders. Mostly, FreemanÂs accusers say he would comment about their bodies or clothes or make them uncomfortable by staring. A male former employee of FreemanÂs production company said the 80-yearold actor would behave like a Âcreepy uncle.ÂŽ One of the articleÂs authors, Chloe Melas, began working on it following a press junket where she said Freeman clasped her hand, looked her up and down and made comments like, Âyou are ripe.ÂŽ ÂI admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women, and men, feel appreciated and at ease around me,ÂŽ Freeman said. ÂAs a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way. Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended.ÂŽ He said that he did not assault women, create unsafe work environments or offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. His reference to equating his behavior with others was unclear. The accusations against Freeman came out the same day word spread that New York City authorities were Â“ling rape charges against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. FreemanÂs statement was reminiscent of an email written by longtime television anchor Tom Brokaw sent to friends recently after a former colleague had accused him of unwanted sexual advances. ÂI am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by ThursdayÂs media reports,ÂŽ Freeman said. Freeman won the 2005 Oscar for best supporting actor for ÂMillion Dollar Baby.ÂŽ He was nominated four other times, including for ÂDriving Miss DaisyÂŽ and ÂThe Shawshank Redemption.ÂŽ His voice is familiar on commercials and as a narrator for documentaries and other productions.Morgan Freeman says he did not assault womenBy DAVID BAUDERAP MEDIA WRITER FREEMAN LOS ANGELES (AP) Â„ Thousands of scouts have placed American Â”ags on the graves of veterans in a ceremony ahead of Memorial Day.

ItÂs their first time competing against each other since racing around the world together seeking $1 million last fall. ItÂs not the starting spot either wanted, but both have a chance to make history. ÂThe silver lining is we have a very cool opportunity,ÂŽ Rossi said. ÂI think it will be one hell of a story if we can pull it off.ÂŽ The 26-year-old Rossi will start next to last in the No. 27 Honda for Andretti Autosport. The 2016 race winner ended up with a less-than-ideal qualifying position because of a punctured right front tire. No one expects him to be in the back very long. Rossi showed enough speed during practice sessions that he has been made one of the bettingline favorites. Online betting site Bovada made him the top choice, with 8-1 odds. ÂItÂs definitely possible at this race,ÂŽ he said.

By STEVE REEDAssociated PressCONCORD, N.C. Â„ Kevin Harvick is well aware heÂs in the midst of something special. Harvick has won the last three Cup races, including the $1 million All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend. And while he is starting 39th for the Coca-Cola 600 after his No. 4 Ford failed inspection three times prior to qualifying, heÂs expected to be in the mix at the end. ÂWhen you are on a hot streak, you are so confident not only as a driver but as a team,ÂŽ said Joey Logano ÂItÂs like you canÂt do anything wrong. You just happen to be in the right spot at the right times. Their cars are really fast, they are really smart and they are really good. And Kevin is a great driver. ... When youÂre good, youÂre good. HeÂs confident.ÂŽ HarvickÂs failure to participate in qualifying wasnÂt lost on his competitors, who are looking for any advantage possible in their attempts to reel him in. Logano joked that Âit sure donÂt hurtÂŽ that Harvick has to start at the back of the field. But with this being 100 miles longer than any other race on the NASCAR circuit, Harvick has plenty of time to push to the front. Harvick said his team knows things are going well, but they are staying focused and handling success in stride. ÂYou can feel that within the organization that what you could achieve by the time you roll through Homestead at the end of the year,ÂŽ Harvick said. ÂItÂs something you might not ever get to do again, so I donÂt believe that those conversations will have to happen. Our goal is to playoff race every week and I think as weÂre doing that right now as an organization. ThatÂs still the goal going forward.ÂŽ Harvick is looking to become the sixth driver to win the All-Star race and then follow with a win in the 600.AUTO RACING: Coca-Cola 600Harvick looks to carry hot streakAP PHOTOKevin Harvick prepares for practice for the NASCAR Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C., yesterday. By MARK DIDTLERAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG Â„ Ryne Stanek, Anthony Banda and Chaz Roe combined to give up three hits on a bullpen day as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Saturday. With the Rays thin in the rotation, Banda (1-0) entered with two outs in the second. He wound up allowing one run and three hits while striking out seven over 6 Â‡ innings. The left-hander held Baltimore hitless until Danny Valencia tripled to start the fifth. Valencia was left stranded when Banda struck out Chris Davis and Joey Rickard, and got a grounder from Andrew Susac Stanek got the start and retired all five batters he faced, including strikeouts of Adam Jones, Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop. Roe worked a perfect ninth for the Rays. Sergio Romo will make his second start in three days and fourth in eight days in SundayÂs series finale when the Rays completes a stretch of three consecutive days of having relievers starting games. The longtime reliever took the loss in Friday nightÂs 2-0 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run while getting two outs. Tampa Bay jumped ahead early, taking a 5-0 lead after two innings. Joey Wendle had an RBI triple and scored on Wilson RamosÂ double in the first. After Rob Refsnyder hit a runscoring single, C.J. Cron made it 5-0 in the second with a two-run double off Andrew Cashner. Cashner (2-6), who allowed five runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings, left with the bases loaded and no outs in the sixth and was replaced by Tanner Scott, who struck out three batters in a row. The Orioles got their run in the seventh when Machado doubled and scored on DavisÂ opposite-field single to left.TRAINERÂS ROOMOrioles: OF Mark Trumbo (sore knee) is feeling better and could avoid going on the disabled list.

With a consistent rain and puddles forming on the infield, the Charlotte Stone Crabs and Fort Myers Miracle managed to squeeze in five innings of the first game of a scheduled doubleheader. Despite the less than ideal weather conditions, the Stone Crabs prevailed, scoring a run in each of the first two innings to defeat the Miracle 2-0. Blake Bivens tossed five innings for the Stone Crabs, holding the Miracle to just three hits, while striking out four en route to earning his first first victory of the season. Charlotte's Nate Lowe delivered the first RBI of the game, driving in Miles Mastrobuoni who had singled earlier in the inning The Stone Crabs added another run in the second, taking advantage of a scoring opportunity, as Lucius Fox singled home Peter Maris, whose leadoff single set the table to open the inning. Fort MyersÂ Tyler Wells also technically threw a complete game, holding Charlotte to two runs on six hits, while striking out one and allowing a walk. Lowe added a double in the third inning after his first-inning RBI single. Maris reached base twice.

Fusing athleticism and technique, it was a mesmerizing sight to behold from the Real Madrid forward. Rarely has there been a finer goal in a European final and Bale followed it up with another to seal MadridÂs third successive Champions League title in a 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday. Yet with blunders, injuries and intrigue unfolding throughout the night in KievÂs Olympic Stadium, the wonder-goal just enriched this engrossing climax to the European club season and set the tone for weeks of uncertainty. A weeping Mohamed Salah was forced off in the first half with a shoulder injury that foiled LiverpoolÂs quest for a first continental success in 13 years and left the World Cup hopes of the ÂEgyptian KingÂŽ in jeopardy. Tears also streamed down Loris KariusÂ face after the Liverpool goalkeeperÂs mistakes gifted two goals in the biggest match of his career. It might also be his last for Liverpool, which was denied a sixth European title by the aristocrats of the continent. When all they should have been thinking about is celebrating, both Bale and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo also cast doubts on their Madrid careers. But while Zinedine Zidane was adamant about the need to keep hold of five-time world player of the year Ronaldo, the Madrid coach seemed far less concerned about the future of the player whose two goals just delivered the clubÂs record-extending 13th European title. Bale only came on in the second half. The impact was explosive, scoring the bicycle kick in the 64th minute. Five years into his Madrid career, the 28-year-old Bale wants to be more than a super-sub. ÂI need to be playing week in, week out and that hasnÂt happened this season for one reason or another,ÂŽ Bale said after lifting the European Cup for a fourth time with Madrid. ÂI need to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent.ÂŽCHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Real Madrid 3, Liverpool 1Madrid seals Champions League three-peat By NOAH TRISTERAssociated PressANN ARBOR, Mich. Â„ In-Kyung Kim began her round with a flurry of birdies, and Stacy Lewis Â„ playing five monthsÂ pregnant Â„ closed hers out in similar fashion. They both still have work to do if theyÂre going to catch Minjee Lee, whose steady consistency has been enough so far. Lee shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the LPGA Volvik Championship. She capped a bogey-free third round with a birdie on No. 18 to get to 12 under, and now the Australian standout will try to celebrate her birthday with her first victory of the year. She turns 22 on Sunday. ÂIt was pretty solid today,ÂŽ Lee said. ÂI didnÂt make any bogeys. Just four birdies on the card. Yeah, thatÂs pretty good.ÂŽ Expecting her first child in November, Lewis birdied five of the last six holes for a 67. She finished the day at 10 under along with Kim (67), who birdied six of the first eight holes and shot a 31 on the front nine. Jodi Ewart Shadoff (69) and Lindy Duncan (69) were also at 10 under, and five more players were at 9 under, setting the stage for what could be a wild final round. ÂThis golf course, you can shoot a number, you can shoot 6 or 7 under, but you can also play pretty good and shoot even par,ÂŽ Lewis said. ÂSo youÂve just got to get runs like I did there at the end of the day and just keep hanging around and post a number and see what happens. ThatÂs what wins these things.ÂŽ Lee left a putt about 8 feet short on the par-3 16th, but she was able to par that hole. Then she hit a provisional after a wayward tee shot on 17, but her original ball was OK in the rough, and she parred that hole too. She has made only two bogeys in three days. Lee lost this tournament by one stroke last year to Shanshan Feng. Kim couldnÂt maintain her torrid early pace, playing the back nine in even par. Lewis, meanwhile, was having a quiet round until her impressive stretch toward the end. ÂThe little one was telling me itÂs dinnertime right now, but other than that I feel pretty good,ÂŽ she said after the round. Ewart Shadoff holed out from about 85 yards for an eagle on No. 4. She was 11 under when she made the turn but had her ups and downs after that, making three bogeys and two birdies on the back. SheÂs been dealing with a lower back injury recently. ÂItÂs better,ÂŽ Ewart Shadoff said. ÂThis is the first time IÂve done three or four consecutive rounds in a row.ÂŽ Nasa Hataoka, the 36-hole leader shot a 74 and dropped to 7 under. Play was interrupted for about two hours by a weather delay, and the timing was particularly interesting for Lizette Salas. She was about to putt for par from only a couple feet on No. 18 when the horn went off, signaling for players to clear the course. So Salas (70) had to wait out the delay before returning to make her routine putt. She received a big cheer when she did. Playing partner Wichanee Meechai finished the 18th just before the delay, but she had to come back to the green as well because of scorecard protocol. Players did have a chance to warm up before play resumed. ÂPractice my 2-footers,ÂŽ Salas said. ÂI was actually really nervous.ÂŽLPGA: Volvik ChampionshipLee tops event in Michigan; pregnant Lewis tied for 2ndAP PHOTOStacy Lewis hits from the fairway on the first hole during the third round of the LPGA Volvik Championship golf tournament at the Travis Pointe Country Club yesterday in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Â„ Alyssa Thomas had 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting and Courtney Williams added 11 points, seven rebounds and career-high tying six assists in the Connecticut SunÂ 86-77 victory over the Indiana Fever on Saturday night. Rachel Banham scored a career-high 14 points, Jasmine Thomas added 11, and Chiney Ogwumike had 10 points with eight rebounds for Connecticut (3-0). The Sun are off to their best start in 10 seasons. Alyssa Thomas made back-to-back layups to give Connecticut a 6-0 lead and the Sun never trailed. Kelsey Mitchell hit a 3-pointer to pull the Fever within one late in the first quarter, but Alex Bentley answered with a layup to make it 24-21 going into the second and spark a 16-0 run. Banham scored seven points during that span, including a pair of free throws that capped the spurt and made it 37-21. Mitchell, the second overall pick in the 2018 draft, finished with 18 points Â„ her fourth consecutive game in double figures Â„ for Indiana (0-5).

The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By ROGER MOONEYTimes Staff WriterTAMPA Â„ Captain Steven Stamkos said the LightningÂs window for contending for a Stanley Cup championship is not closing. ÂI think itÂs wide open,ÂŽ he said Thursday, one day after the Lightning lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final to the Capitals. General manager Steve Yzerman thinks it is, too, and it is YzermanÂs job to keep that window open. YzermanÂs team fell one game shy of reaching the Stanley Cup final, which indicates to him it is not good enough to win it all. How does he fix that? Not by blowing up the roster, he said. But, he added, the team has to be better. ÂAnd how is that? Is that in the way we play? Is that in changing personnel? Personnel will change regardless, whether itÂs just evolution year to year,ÂŽ Yzerman said Thursday. ÂHow much it changes depends on what options, what opportunities are out there. ItÂs difficult to change significantly for us at this stage. ItÂs a challenge. We need to improve.ÂŽ And improving the team is YzermanÂs main job. Does he do it through free agency, like last summer, when he signed defenseman Dan Girardi and forward Chris Kunitz? Or a trade, like he did last summer, when he swapped forward Jonathan Drouin for defenseman Mikhail Sergachev? Does he bring up some kids, like he did with forwards Yanni Gourde and, late in the season, Tony Cirelli? Does he make changes to coach Jon CooperÂs staff? ÂYou kind of look at everything,ÂŽ he said. Kunitz can be an unrestricted free agent July 1. So can defenseman Andrej Sustr. Forward Matthew Peca can be an unrestricted free agent. Headed to restricted free agency are forwards J.T. Miller, Cedric Paquette and Adam Erne, defenseman Slater Koekkoek and goalie Louis Domingue. Plus, forward Nikita Kucherov is eligible to sign a contract extension July 1. Also, forward Tyler JohnsonÂs no-trade clause kicks in July 1, so that is something to be considered. The players naturally believe in the current group and will reassemble in early September for training camp intent on reaching their goal, which is the same one they have had since 2015, when they lost to the Blackhawks in the Cup final. ÂI definitely think weÂre capable,ÂŽ forward Ryan Callahan said. ÂOur body of work has shown that weÂre right there. The guys that we have in that (locker) room have the ability to take that next step. The core has been together for quite a while and accomplished some good things. We want to win together, thatÂs for sure.ÂŽ The core, with a few tweaks, will remain largely intact for the 2018-19 season. Kunitz, who will be 38 in September, might find a better offer elsewhere. Sustr and Koekkoek, healthy scratches toward the end of the regular season and throughout the playoffs, could do well with a change of scenery. There could be a trade or two, mostly minor unless Yzerman moves Johnson while he still has the flexibility. Cooper said there is a Ârazor-thinÂŽ line between the top teams in the league and those at the bottom. He believes his team is poised to get over that Eastern Conference final hump after stumbling in a Game 7 during the 2016 playoffs and again this spring. He believes the Lightning had the talent to do that this year but added it has to improve. The Capitals improved last offseason, not by adding a big piece, but by adding younger, faster players. It helped them that Alex Ovechkin, their best player, changed his game to become more of a two-way player. Perhaps one of the LightningÂs top scorers could do the same. That is one way to keep the Stanley-Cup-contender window open.ÂWhen you have a guy like (Andrei Vasilevskiy) in net, thatÂs what you build upon,ÂŽ Stamkos said. ÂAnd we have so many great young players, the expectations are going to be just as high. ItÂs about fulfilling them.ÂŽ Getting back to the question at heart: Is this Lightning team good enough or does Yzerman have a lot of work ahead of him this offseason? ÂI donÂt know if there is an exact answer for you,ÂŽ Yzerman said. ÂWeÂll find out a year from now. WeÂll try to improve. We need to be better. A lot of positives (this season). Got to Game 7 of the conference finals, but ultimately, if weÂre trying to win the Stanley Cup, we need to improve.ÂŽ Noteworthy: The NHL awards are June 20 in Las Vegas, with Victor Hedman a finalist for the Norris Trophy (top defenseman), Vasilevskiy a finalist for the Vezina Trophy (top goalie) and Yzerman a finalist for GM of the year. .

By JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON Â„ LeBron James and the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers wonÂt get any sympathy from the Celtics when they return to Boston for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. Already laboring to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals with a supporting crew made mostly of cast-offs and throw-ins, James lost the only other All-Star on the roster on Saturday when Kevin Love was declared out for the series finale with a concussion. Now, in what could be his final game in a Cleveland uniform Â„ again Â„ James will have to do it largely on his own. In Boston, where the Celtics are perfect so far this postseason. And in a series where the road team hasnÂt really even come close. ÂThereÂs something different about LeBron, period,ÂŽ Cleveland forward Larry Nance Jr. said after James scored 46 with 11 rebounds and nine assists on Friday night to send the series to a decisive seventh game. ÂI think (coach Tyronn Lue) said it best: ÂWeÂre going into a Game 7 with the baddest dude on the planet on our team.Â I like our chances.ÂŽ James is having what could be the best postseason of his career, averaging 33.9 points and just under nine assists and rebounds, with seven 40-point games, two buzzer beaters, and a sweep of top-seeded Toronto. But heÂs played in every game this season Â„ Sunday will be his 100th Â„ and it showed in the Game 5 loss to the Celtics.NBA: Eastern Conference FinalsLeBron, back in Boston, for another Cavaliers farewellBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND Â„ Kevin Love wonÂt be able to help LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Game 7 against the Celtics. Love was placed in the NBAÂs concussion protocol and the All-Star forward will miss SundayÂs series finale of the Eastern Conference finals, a personal blow and yet another challenge for Cleveland to overcome. The Cavaliers said Love, who inadvertently bashed heads with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Game 6, experienced concussion-like symptoms Saturday before the teamÂs flight to Boston. Moments before the Cavs sent a news release updating LoveÂs status, coach Tyronn Lue held a confusing teleconference during which he said the 29-year-old was still being evaluated and there was a possibility he could play. However, like everything else in this erratic, convoluted season for Cleveland, things changed quickly. Now, the Cavs will be without their secondleading scorer and top rebounder as they try to win their fourth straight conference title against a younger team that is 10-0 at home in the playoffs. Love is averaging 13.9 points and 10.0 rebounds in 17 playoff starts, and heÂs the No. 2 scoring option for the Cavs, who have leaned on James harder than ever this p ostseason.NBA: Eastern Conference FinalsCavsÂ Kevin Love to miss Game 7 By BARRY WILNERAssociated PressNEW YORK Â„ When veteran Todd Desgrosseilliers was recovering from battle wounds, he went back to a boyhood love: fly fishing. The organization he now leads has 8,500 participants, one of whom was so inspired by Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing that he told Desgrosseilliers: ÂThis program saved my life.ÂŽ DesgrosseilliersÂ group for disabled veterans is one of many receiving funding though the Bob Woodruff Foundation which this week secured an agreement with the NFL to support such initiatives. ÂThe Bob Woodruff Foundation provides us with a grant each year that supports one of our largest programs, rod building,ÂŽ Desgrosseilliers says. ÂWe had over 900 veterans participate in it as part of a larger core of activities we have that include fly fishing education and outings. ÂWhen our participants are able to come to the meetings, the rod building provides them with an activity that kind of brings them together, creates camaraderie.ÂŽ Such pastimes create more than that. For Desgrosseilliers, who learned to fly fish with his great-grandfather and grandfather in Maine, it has been an effective therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder and vertigo he suffered after a traumatic head injury in combat. There are 222 programs nationwide under the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing umbrella. They stage local and regional events as well as national destination trips; 400 members will go on a variety of excursions this year, including to Alaska or the Florida Keys. ÂItÂs a group of disabled veterans coming together with folks who care about them, and they are involved in an activity that is fun,ÂŽ Desgrosseilliers says. ÂWe partner our programs with fly fishing organizations to provide the (3,500) volunteers who know how to do the fly fishing basics.ÂŽ The Woodruff Foundation was founded in 2006 after reporter Woodruff was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq. To date, the foundation has invested more than $55 million to find, fund and shape programs that have empowered veterans, service members and their families. Its $2 million affiliation with the NFL announced this week wil l bolster the grant work done by the foundation. ÂThe NFL is such a prominent American brand and one that has a longstanding commitment to the veteran community,ÂŽ says Marshall Lauck, the foundationÂs chief growth and marketing officer. ÂThis is not something new to them; their history with supporting veterans and active military members is strong. This is a time with increased interest on their part in how they can most effectively support the veteran community (through nonprofits). ÂOur expertise can be very helpful for the NFL in its goals in supporting these communities.ÂŽNFLNFL teams up with Woodru Foundation to help veteransBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressARLINGTON, Va. Â„ Raw emotion came from Alex Ovechkin as he wore an ÂEastern Conference championsÂŽ hat for the first time. ÂOh my God,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs unbelievable. I canÂt explain my emotions. IÂm just happy for my boys, for organizations, for fans. Finally.ÂŽ Finally. Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals will play for the Stanley Cup. ItÂs a journey 14 years in the making from Ovechkin being the first overall draft pick to the greatest goal scorer of this generation Â„ and a player who until this year hasnÂt made it out of the second round of the playoffs through little fault of his own. Yet heÂs gotten an uneven proportion of the blame. Ovechkin essentially willed the Capitals to the Cup Final with 12 goals, 10 assists and the best postseason of his career. In one spring, the 32-yearold Russian superstar has ended WashingtonÂs 20-year final drought, slayed demons and destroyed the old narrative that he canÂt get the job done when it matters most. ÂThe special thing is because weÂre winning,ÂŽ Ovechkin said before the Capitals left for Las Vegas. ÂThatÂs the whole thing. ThatÂs all I can say. We win and we move forward. WeÂve never been in this position before. All my career, I played for this team, and we never get the success like that.ÂŽ Ovechkin bore the brunt of nine playoff appearances ending after the first or second round despite being a point-agame player. With time running out on chasing the trophy he knew all about as a kid, this season has featured a differentlooking player. General manager Brian MacLellan sees a new level of maturity on and off the ice that he believes comes from Ovechkin getting married. A different offseason training regimen allowed Ovechkin to produce more at even strength, and the result was an NHL-leading 49 goals. ÂI think the way he plays this year is more within the team structure,ÂŽ MacLellan said. ÂThis is the most systematic heÂs played throughout his career, in my mind.ÂŽ In the playoffs, Ovechkin has raised his game even further. His vintage physicality and his willingness to get his body in front of shots and hustle down ice on the backcheck have been noticeable. ÂWhen you see him blocking shots, you see him coming back hard, you see him playing physical, heÂs getting more and more excited,ÂŽ linemate Tom Wilson said. ÂIt seems like every round you win, heÂs playing even harder. And thatÂs what you need out of your top guys. When heÂs going, youÂre aware heÂs on the ice. Everyone in the building knows heÂs on the ice.ÂŽ During the third round, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said Ovechkin has Âtaken 14 years of frustration out in one playoffs.ÂŽ Ovechkin is reluctant to talk about previous playoff disappointments, but theyÂve been tied to him. Even though this is a team sport, someone has to be the greatest player to never win the Cup. Until now, arguably thatÂs Ovechkin, a label he has the chance to shed beginning in Game 1 of the final Monday at the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.NHL: Stanley Cup FinalsOvechkin slays demons on Â“ rst trip to Finals

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, May 27, 2018 / The SunBy DAVE HYDESun Sentinel (TNS)The first time Andre Dawson drove a hearse, he turned to the woman in the casket and said, completely serious, "I'll do my best to make sure this isn't bumpy." The first time he told Hall of Fame baseball friends Tim Raines and Jim Rice he was in the funeral business, they stared at him with what Dawson realizes is a universal blank look and finally said, "You're doing what?" The first time he even told his wife, Vanessa, about his interest in buying a funeral home a decade ago, she purposely did nothing at all. Said nothing. "I ignored him," she said. They're together in the office at Paradise Memorial Funeral Home in the south Miami-Dade community of Richmond Heights that they've owned for a decade. She gave a wry smile. "I then saw the funds getting depleted," she said. This is a story of "Six Feet Under" meeting "Sixty Feet Six Inches," a TV show about a funeral home mashing up with a book about baseball. Dawson, who spent 21 years in the major leagues playing with the Expos, Cubs, Red Sox and Marlins, does everything except embalm bodies. He comforts families. Ushers at services. Drives the hearse and limousine. Goes to homes and hospitals to collect bodies. And, when requested, poses for pictures. "Hawk?" one man said, using Dawson's nickname, when the Hall of Famer appeared at the man's home one night to collect a deceased family member. "Is that you?" This turn of careers surprises even Dawson, whose 13-year relationship with the Marlins ended after new owner Derek Jeter took over. Owning a funeral home wasn't a dream or even a plan as much as the falling of a procession of dominoes. He was one of six partners investing in a north Miami funeral home his brother ran. That led to him being approached about buying this Richmond Heights funeral home when it went up for sale. He talked with the pastors and leaders and saw it was a community service more than anything. "I was brought in to secure financing," Dawson, 63, said. The state inspected the funeral home and found violations. It also had prior violations Dawson didn't know about. Faced with this, he tried to sell it. "I thought people were nickel-and-diming me, so I said I'll keep it and run it myself," he said. Eight months later, with a new name and refurbished building, Paradise Memorial opened. "I try to stay in the background," Dawson said. "I don't want to be out front. I never named the funeral home. How crazy that would be? I answer a lot of questions, as it is, when people find out what I do. "I think they have an issue with, not the dead in a sense, but how at times it can feel a little morbid. They look at me and stare. They just stare at me. I hand them my business card." This is the first time in 13 seasons Dawson isn't a presence at Marlins games, counseling players, helping coaches and generally being a veteran sounding board. New owner Jeter fired Dawson, Tony Perez, Jack McKeon and Jeff Conine from those roles. He doesn't watch Marlins games. He makes appearances for the Cubs now. But he keeps up with Marlins players, current and former. He still texts Giancarlo Stanton on occasion, as he did a few weeks ago with Stanton in a slump. "You know what's coming," he wrote, meaning a hot run for Stanton. He still keeps a picture of late pitcher Jose Fernandez, a former Tampa Alonso standout who died in a late-night boat crash, on his phone as, "my keepsake. I loved Jose. Loved his vigor, his energy, his competitiveness." And he thought the Marlins should have been, "a little more hands-on with him. I'm talking on the field. Between his games. "I'm not the one to make that call. But it starts early, if you don't want it to get out of hand. Have him tone down things Â… even things like chasing fly balls. Let him know, 'We want you to take care of yourself.' Reel him in. 'We want you for 162 games, not 16 starts.' It was sensitive. No one wanted to do it because who he was." He stood up after an interview in the viewing room of his funeral home and flexed his bad left knee, the one replaced with complications 12 years ago. He's had seven surgeries on both knees. But there's a funeral to plan, and business to be done. His wife, two uncles and son are part of his hand-picked, churchbased team. "I always thought this was an extension of the church," he said. "God placed me here for a reason," Dawson said. "If you had told me a while back I'd be doing this, I'd say, 'Not gonna happen." I'm both feet in now. It's been a learning experience for me. "One thing about people dying, people getting married Â… it divides families. I try not to be a psychologist. I try to just help them through the process. "I see people come bac k weeks after (the service) and I tell them, that's one wound that doesn't completely heal. You can put a Band-Aid over it, but you're always going to have your moments." His moment typically comes when he's at a baseball function, or just signing a fan's autograph request and the normal question comes: "What are you doing now?" "I take a deep breath, pause and say, 'I own a funeral home. No, I don't do any embalming, I own the funeral home.' And then I know what's coming." He hands them his new life's business card from six feet under. right now, I definitely wouldnÂt be as optimistic as I am. But this race, if you qualify 32nd if youÂre slow, youÂre not going to drive to the front. If you qualify 32nd because you have an issue and you donÂt feel that you should be there, then you have a pretty big opportunity. ÂThere are a lot of different ways you can play if you have a fast car.ÂŽ Daly qualified 31st in the 33-car field, getting Thom Burns Racing and the No. 18 Honda sponsored by the U.S. Air Force into one of auto racingÂs most prestigious events. ÂIÂd say weÂre a 16 seed,ÂŽ Daly said, noting all the upsets in the NCAA Tournament in March. ÂBut just like the tournament, anything can happen in this race. We see it all the time: Things change. Things go from really bad to really good. Just one pit stop can change things from all over the place.ÂŽ Daly doesnÂt have a full-time ride in the IndyCar Series this season. The 26-yearold Daly will make his NASCAR debut in August when he jumps into a Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing and competed in the Xfinit y Series race at Road America in Wisconsin. Still, IndyCar is his first choice and delivering a solid result Sunday could lead to more options in the future. ÂWe sort of know where weÂre at,ÂŽ Daly said. ÂWe have realistic expectations: We want to have a long Sunday. We want to be there the whole time, the whole race and have a shot to have a good finish at the end.ÂŽ Rossi and Daly failed to make it to the end of ÂThe Amazing Race.ÂŽ The roommates ended up fourth, eliminated just before the finale. It was a disappointing conclusion after competing around the g lobe. The y sto pp ed in Iceland, Belgium, Morocco, France, the Czech Republic, Zimbabwe, Bahrain, Thailand and Hong Kong, winning a race-high four legs but finishing last in Hong Kong and getting cut. Among the challenges they faced: traversing a suspension line in Iceland, completing a Âsky climbÂŽ in Belgium, sailing a dinghy in France, building a trebuchet in France, singing and dancing in Zimbabwe and eating scorpions in Thailand. They were slowed and eventually done in by a tricky street puzzle in Hong Kong at night. ÂIt was definitely a wild experience,ÂŽ Daly said. Added Rossi: ÂIt wasnÂt for fame or money or anything like that. It was just to truly try to help promote my brand and the rising IndyCar Series.ÂŽ They found themselves paired up again Thursday night at the ÂLast Row Party,ÂŽ an annual celebration of the final three qualifiers that raises scholarship money for journalism students. Daly, Rossi and lastplace qualifier Jack Harvey also earned a little money. Daly was presented a check for 31 cents. Rossi got one for 32 cents, and Harvey landed one for 33 cents. The paychecks served as reminders of how quickly things can change at Indy, where Rossi was a surprise winner two years ago, a challenger in 2017 and now someone looking to deliver a real-life amazing race. ÂThis place owes no one anything,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou donÂt deserve to be in it by any stretch of the imagination. Going from fighting to be in the Fast Nine so you can hopefully fight for the pole to the next day literally being next to last just shows you that every day you have to respect it and you have to appreciate the opportunity you have to be able to drive on it. ÂThatÂs what makes it so s p ecial.ÂŽ500From Page 1By BETH HARRISAssociated PressARCADIA, Calif. Â„ Victor Espinoza shook AccelerateÂs neck to encourage him leaving the starting gate. That got the usually slow-breaking horse away in good position. Then Espinoza waited. With pacesetting Dr. Dorr and City of Light going at it up front, Accelerate and Espinoza laid third before rallying in mid-stretch to win the $500,000 Gold Cup at Santa Anita on Saturday by 4 lengths over Dr. Dorr, trained by Bob Baffert. Accelerate ran 1 miles in 2:01.38 and paid $5.80, $3 and $2.10 at 9-5 odds. ÂHe had a lot of patience, a lot of confidence in the horse,ÂŽ winning trainer John Sadler said. ÂHe was riding confidently in the sense that he knew his horse could get the distance.ÂŽ Dr. Dorr, owned by BaffertÂs wife, Jill, returned $4.20 and $2.60 and had his three-race winning streak snapped. City of Light, the 6-5 favorite, was another 1 lengths back in third and paid $2.20 to show in the Grade 1 race. City of LightÂs threerace winning streak ended when Accelerate turned the tables on his rival. Accelerate finished second as the favorite by a neck to City of Light in the Oaklawn Handicap last month in Arkansas. Espinoza swung the 5-year-old son of Lookin At Lucky out and drifted four-wide into the stretch before Accelerate gained the lead under the whip. ÂI was hoping to be on the inside but at the three-eighths I knew it wasnÂt going to happen,ÂŽ Espinoza said. ÂI knew the outside horse (City of Light) was getting tired, so I just kept following and had to be patient.ÂŽ Accelerate carried high weight of 125 pounds Â„ four more than his rivals Â„ under the handicap conditions. ÂWhat we kind of forget in modern-day horse racing is that because he already won a Grade 1, heÂs the high weight under 125 pounds and was giving weight to every other horse at a mile and a quarter,ÂŽ Sadler said. ÂThat makes his win that much more impressive, when you give away four pounds to the competition at this distance.ÂŽ City of Light won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap on March 10, one of his four victories in eight starts. He had never finished worse than second until Saturday. ÂAccelerate really ran strong at the end and we couldnÂt go with him,ÂŽ jockey Drayden Van Dyke said. The victory, worth $300,000, increased AccelerateÂs career earnings to $1,712,480, with six wins in 19 starts. ÂHe looked beautiful today,ÂŽ Sadler said. ÂHeÂs a 5-year-old, a strong horse, a happy horse. Sometimes I look to keep him in the barn, but heÂs just doing so well, he says, ÂI should be running,Â so thatÂs what we did.ÂŽ Sadler said Accelerate will be pointed toward the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar on Aug. 18. Pavel was fourth, Prince of Arabia was fifth and Chile-bred Full of Luck finished last. In the $300,000 Gamely Stakes for fillies and mares, 14-1 shot Sophie P won by a nose in a photo finish under Kent Desormeaux. Trained by Jim Cassidy, the Britain-bred mare ran 1 Â‡ miles on turf in 1:48.53 and paid $30, $11.80 and $6.80 in the Grade 1 race. Ireland-bred Madame Dancealot returned $5.40 and $3.40. Argentinabred Madame Stripes was another neck back in third and paid $5.60 to show. In the $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes on turf, 4-5 favorite Itsinthepost won by 1 lengths under Julien Leparoux, who replaced the injured Tyler Baze. The 6-year-old gelding bred in France ran 1 miles in 2:02.10 and paid $3.80, $2.40 and $2.10 in the Grade 2 race. Kenjisstorm returned $4.60 and $3. Frank Conversation was another 2 lengths back in third and paid $4 to show.HORSE RACING: Santa AnitaAccelerate spurts ahead in stretch to win Grade 1 Gold CupAP PHOTOIn a photo provided by Benoit Photo, Accelerate and jockey Victor Espinoza win the Grade I, $500,000 Gold Cup horse race yesterday at Santa Anita in Arcadia, Calif.

Dawson was a special assistant to Marlins president David Samson before Derek Jeter let Dawson and others go. Now, Dawson runs the business with his family. By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressFORT WORTH, Texas Â„ While Justin Rose felt good about his four-stroke lead after three rounds at Colonial, he wasnÂt yet counting down the holes left in the Fort Worth Invitational. ÂI think IÂve won and lost actually from four ahead, so IÂve got experience both ways,ÂŽ Rose said after shooting a 4-under 66 on Saturday to get to 14 under. ÂJust shows you canÂt get ahead of yourself.ÂŽ Rose also remembers how he won his PGA Tour season debut, a surprise in Shanghai in October after he began the final round of the HSBC Champions eight shots behind Dustin Johnson, then the No. 1 player in the world. ÂIÂve got experience the other way,ÂŽ Rose said. ÂSo you can see how things can go both ways real quick. ... Great position going into tomorrow, yeah. Look forward to putting it away, but I kind of know there are going to be challenges out there.ÂŽ Fifth-ranked Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion and Olympic gold medalist with eight PGA Tour victories, led by four over playing partner Emiliano Grillo and defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. Grillo shot 69 while Koepka had a 67. On a steamy day in North Texas Â„ with temperatures in the upper 90s and it feeling even warmer Â„ Rose birdied the first three holes to quickly extend his lead from one to four over Grillo, who had eight pars in a row before consecutive birdies at Nos. 9 and 10. ÂYou canÂt drink enough (water) out there,ÂŽ Rose said. ÂYeah, it was a factor today. I struggled a little bit on the bad nine with my focus. ... I was really trying to put one foot in front of the other and stay committed.ÂŽ The closest Grillo got after the opening stretch was three strokes, when he was 11 under with an 8-foot birdie at No. 10. Rose regained his four-stroke edge with a birdie at the 616-yard 11th hole.GOLF: Fort Worth InvitationalRose shoots 66 to take 4-shot lead into Â“ nale
