THE BOTTOM LINEFlorida SouthWestern College says a convoluted state funding formula shortchanges it, but that hasnÂt stopped the school from implementing programs increasing the number of students almost every year. In recent budget breakdowns, Florida SouthWestern State College ranks on the lower end of state funding despite a rapid growth in admissions. While Florida SouthWestern Collegiate High School ranks No. 3 in the state for funding, the college of the same name has repeatedly seen only a small portion of the yearly state budget come its way. The school has been underfunded since the 2014-15 school year, culminating in a $26.1 million shortfall, according to data provided by FSW. In the 2017-18 school year, FSW, which has a Charlotte County campus, received $2,847.67 per full time equivalent (FTE) student. The Florida College SystemÂs current funding per FTE averages $3,712.17, meaning the collegeÂs funding is nearly $1,000 below the statewide mean. Despite the lack of funding, FSW continues to Â“nd new ways to help its students. ÂAbout Â“ve years ago, we began a truly transformative process with a focus on student success. That led to our Dedicate to Graduate initiative,ÂŽ said Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Christine Davis. ÂThis is a one-stop area for our students that covers everything from academic advising and support centers, counseling and adaptive services to Â“nancial aid, peer tutoring and student engagement. ÂOur end goal is to help our students graduate from FSW in a timely manner. IÂm pleased to say that we are seeing improvement, so we know this initiative is working.ÂŽ A major reason for the schoolÂs funding discrepancy is how Florida divides its yearly budget. For the 2018-19 funding year, the Florida Legislature passed a $88.7 billion budget Â„ though $64 million of this was later vetoed by Gov. Rick Scott and placed back into reserves Â„ with over a quarter (28.47 percent) designated for education. Of this, K-12 public schools, including charters like FSW Collegiate, receive 58.25 percent of the funding while state colleges receive the second lowest amount at 4.86 percent. From this sliver of the budget, funds are then allocated to the 28 state colleges based on a variety of factors.

ÂAt this time, DHS has no indication of threats, vulnerabilities, or risks speciÂ“c to Florida elections ofÂ“ces or the processes they administer,ÂŽ a DHS ofÂ“cial told the Sun in an email this week. ÂBroadly, the Department is supporting state and local election ofÂ“cials as they take steps to identify and reduce risks to their systems.ÂŽ Recently, DHS provided a half day training to FloridaÂs elections supervisors during the annual summer conference of the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections held May 20-24 in Fort Lauderdale. The focus of the DHS training was Âimproving the security and resilience of elections.ÂŽ DHS also provided a brieÂ“ng to elections supervisors on various services and support it can provide locally. ÂFlorida has been very engaged with the Department; both state and local election ofÂ“cials are working in partnership with DHS to share information and manage risks to their systems,ÂŽ the DHS ofÂ“cial said. ÂOur ofÂ“ce is aware of the formidable threats being directed or contemplated against our democracy and has taken the necessary countermeasures to protect our voting system,ÂŽ said Charlotte County Elections Supervisor Paul Stamoulis. ÂWe as a nation have faced grave dangers before and have always prevailed against those that would do us harm,ÂŽ Stamoulis said. ÂThis type of new warfare will be no different.ÂŽ Sarasota County Elections Supervisor Ron Turner said his ofÂ“ce was recently visited by DHS ofÂ“cials, as DHS involvement has increased since the 2016 election.

He has a bolder personality, a more loyal base and we now have the internet. ÂAmericans can get more news. Yes, a lot is fake or biased but it is harder for the swamp to keep information from the people. Time will tell. I love it when you challenge us, your readers, to think.ÂŽ Â„ CW Thanks, CW. Based on reader feedback, IÂm going to write more about the similar backgrounds and similar challenges of President Trump and President Carter. Both President Trump and President Carter came into the White House having lived their lives primarily outside politics Â„ as successful businessmen. Carter came from a wealthy agricultural family, but inherited very little. CarterÂs Â“rst-year harvest failed and Jimmy took out debt to stay aÂ”oat. He and his wife spent a year in subsidized housing as he got started in business. Carter used grit, hard work and smarts to build a successful agricultural business which included insurance, seed and fertilizer sales, corn buying and cotton ginning. He eventually became quite successful in business. He used that business background to launch a political career. President Trump also came from a successful family. Donald faced downturns, borrowed money to stay aÂ”oat and eventually built a very successful real estate empire. Both men, forged by business challenges, became supremely conÂ“dent in their own decision making. President Carter was so conÂ“dent, he disdained the chief of staff position. Chris WhippleÂs book, about the history of the chief of staff position, ÂThe Gatekeepers,ÂŽ chronicles how CarterÂs distaste for a Decision-making style forged by business successesDAVID | 5 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENTCALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2 0 1 6 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 126 | NO. 154AMERICAÂS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY Partly sunnyHigh 89 Low 76$3.00 www.yoursun.comTodayÂs weather: GOOD MORNING Sunday, June 3, 2018 REPORT: TRUMP LAWYERSÂ LETTER TO MUELLER CHALLENGES SUBPOENAPresident Donald TrumpÂs lawyers composed a secret 20-page letter to special counsel Robert Mueller to assert that he cannot be forced to testify while arguing that he could not have committed obstruction because he has absolute authority over all federal investigations.

Postmaster: Please send address changes to the SUN, 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, Florida 33980-2100.Punta Gorda staff is proposing to rezone property located at 1700 Jamaica Way across from the Isles Yacht Club. The site was previously developed with a condominium building that was severely damaged during Hurricane Charley. The structure has since been torn down and the property has been vacant since 2005. The rezoning would allow for the property owner to develop a commercial structure at the location, an outcome that has some area residents speaking out. ÂMy wife and I have lived on Jamaica Way for 28 years,ÂŽ said Paul Wozney. ÂWe are opposed to the proposed rezoningÂŽ He said he and his wife are against the rezoning for multiple reasons, one of which being that the area already occupies other vacant retail buildings. ÂThere are several commercial properties similar or identical to the proposed center already existing within a short distance,ÂŽ said Wozney. ÂSome of these spaces are vacant Âƒ these include the now empty 7-Eleven building. Finding tenants for retail space in Punta Gorda Isles has been problematic (already). We we do not another empty retail space right at the entrance of our street.ÂŽ The 7-Eleven was located on Bal Harbor Boulevard and Aqui Esta Drive in PGI. The property is in a unique position according to Geri Waksler, attorney for McCrory Law Firm and a representative of the property owner. ÂThe site has frontage on Marion Avenue,ÂŽ said Waksler, Âwhich at this intersection was developed with, essentially, all nonresidential uses. It also has frontage on Jamaica Way, which is a residential street. The proposed Neighborhood residential zoning allows the property to take advantage of this unique location.ÂŽ She said that rezoning the property would allow the owner to have a commercial structure at the corner of the intersection of W. Marion and Jamaica Way and residential along the residential street. Until the rezoning can be approved by council, there are no deÂ“nite plans for the property. ÂWithout the zoning in place,ÂŽ said Waksler, Âof course my client hasnÂt gone out and marketed the site to anybody.ÂŽ Waksler said her clientÂs intent is to build a neighborhood-scaled commercial structure. ÂPerhaps a small deli ... an ofÂ“ce location,ÂŽ she said. ÂTheyÂre not looking to put a heavy intense commercial use at this corner.ÂŽ The goal of the rezoning for the property owner and city staff is to create walkable neighborhoods. Â... not some place where you have to get in your car every time you want to go for commercial uses.ÂŽ The intent of the Neighborhood Center zoning district is to provide for a location for pedestrian-scale shops, services, small workplaces and residential buildings central to a neighborhood, according to Waksler. One worry for area residents would be an increase in trafÂ“c along Jamaica Way due to a commercial business being allowed on the property. ÂUntil we have a speciÂ“c balance of the commercial to the residential (structures),ÂŽ said Waksler, Âwe canÂt do a trafÂ“c study.ÂŽ Waksler did say that a trafÂ“c study would be required before when more concrete plans for the property are in place. ÂOne will be required,ÂŽ said Waksler, Â... and your codes require concurrency. We could not put something here that would create a trafÂ“c problem because your codes do not allow it. You must maintain and stay within the adopted levels of service for both the local road, which would be Jamaica Way ... as well as for Marion Ave.ÂŽ The zoning ordinance will have to be presented and approved by the City Council before any actions can be taken by the property owner.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgPunta Gorda to consider rezoning vacant Jamaica Way propertyBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERCar showThe San Pedro Quarterly Car Show takes place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, June 9 at 14380 Tamiami Trail, North Port.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 which receive funding based solely on student enrollment, state colleges use a combination of enrollment, utility costs, graduation rates and more to determine what each one receives. ÂUtility costs in Miami, for instance, are going to cost more than in other parts of the state, so a school there would be given more money to continue operating,ÂŽ said Jim Browne, legislative assistant to Rep. Michael Grant (R-Port Charlotte). Regardless of low funding, the population of FSWÂs Charlotte campus keeps increasing, demanding a wider range of programs and instructors as well as student resources and assistance. ÂFSW is one of only six state colleges to see continuous growth over the past three years. It has seen a 6 percent increase in enrollment compared to the state average,ÂŽ FSW Director of Communications Teresa Araque said. ÂThe Charlotte campus has seen a 9.9 percent increase.ÂŽ According to Araque, the ratio of students to the schoolÂs cut of the budget resulted in FSW being underfunded operationally by $9.3 million this year. However, GrantÂs ofÂ“ce says their funding is well within 1 percent of the state mean. Meanwhile, the amount of money put into the education budget has also increased in recent years, presumably giving schools access to more funds. ÂThe state budget passed during the 2018 legislative session made signiÂ“cant investments in both the Florida college system and the K-12 public school system,ÂŽ Sen. Denise Grimsley said. ÂWe also invested in performance funding in the Florida College System, which would be available to Florida SouthWestern College,and provided a $6.7 million increase in operating funds for the state college system.ÂŽ These investments have added up to millions of dollars available in the upcoming school year. ÂThe 2018-19 budget for state colleges has increased by $59.6 million over the current year (2017-18),ÂŽ Grant said. Despite the increase this year, FSW will not necessarily feel the impact because of its position on the Performance Funding Model. This model divides all 28 Florida state colleges into Gold, Silver, Bronze and Purple levels. Gold receives the most funding while Silver Â„ where FSW places Â„ receives Âbase funds restored and prorated share of state investment,ÂŽ according to the model. The PFM uses four categories Â„ retention rates, completion rates, job placement/continuing education rates and entrylevel wages Â„ to award points to each school. The closer a college is to 40 points, the better it ranks and the more funding it receives. FSW consistently does well in certain categories while falling far behind in others. The school, for instance, has an incredibly high job placement rate Â„ degrees like Cardiovascular Technology and Dental Hygiene saw 100 percent placement after the 2015-16 school year. However, they have a below-average completion rate. The latter only earns them 2.67 points out of 10 for that category, according to the Florida College System. Regardless of these setbacks, the school refuses to be slowed down. Since partnering with Western Michigan University Â„ a self-funded initiative Â„ FSW hopes to create classes that supplement those at the out-of-state school. ÂWe want to launch an undergraduate aviation program that would complement the aviation programs WMU is offering. We project that cost to be a $1.1 million startup,ÂŽ said Araque. The goal is to train people in areas that Â“t the regionÂs needs and with Punta Gorda Airport being only a mile away from campus, the program makes perfect sense. To continue preparing Charlotte County students for the workforce, FSW has to make its lower-than-average budget work and only spend on the most important projects. School ofÂ“cials hope they can eventually offer a wider array of certiÂ“cations and degrees, though perpetually low funding severely inhibits this goal. ÂIf we were to receive the extra operational funding, we would hire more academic advisors and put additional resources into student advising. Another area that is as important would be in hiring more full-time faculty. These areas ultimately beneÂ“t our students, and are essential in our continued success for our Dedicate to Graduate initiative,ÂŽ Davis said.

Rick Scott signed the stateÂs 2018-19 budget in March, a couple of key education institutions serving Sarasota and Manatee counties suffered losses as compared to the previous year. HereÂs what the schools got: University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM): $10,888,702 State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF): $23,851,956 Both USFSM and SCF went through budget cuts and vetoes last year, and this year was no different. The former is slated to get $3,426,867 fewer than what it got last year, and SCF, which has a Venice campus, may lose out on $1,619,028. Although SCF lost out on about $1.15 million in recurring funds from the budget last year, Brian Thomas, special assistant to the SCF president, said they had received $1.38 million in non-recurring funds from the local legislative delegation to offset the impact in 2017. This year doesnÂt make up for it, as they expect to receive $174,000 in new recurring funds. The school could receive $4 million to renovate its popular science building, which is $2.2 million shy of what they needed. Next year, the budgets for the independent campuses of the University of South Florida Â„ Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Manatee Â„ will be absorbed into one budget for the USF system. Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law SB 4, also known as the Florida Excellence in Higher Education Act sponsored by Galvano. The highlighting achievement was permanently expanding the Bright Futures scholarship program, but also detailed that each USF campus must merge into a single university system by June 2020. The St. Petersburg campus gained its accreditation in 2006 and Sarasota-Manatee in 2011. The purpose of having all three USF campuses under one accreditation, also branded as Âreunification,ÂŽ is for the school to reach preeminent status, a designation that comes with more funding. Other reasons, detailed to the Bradenton Herald by USF System trustee Byron Shinn in January, include adding new programs and sharing resources. USFSM spokesman Shawn Ahearn said, after speaking with partners in Tampa, that they are ÂoptimisticÂŽ in the reunification process. Â(In) time, additional resources could be put into our programs of strategic importance, especially in the STEM fields,ÂŽ he said.SCF took hit in Gov. ScottÂs 2018-19 budget approvalBy HANNAH MORSEBRADENTON HERALD Like so many Florida teenagers, Zach Berman grew up a Gator fan, attending plenty of football and basketball games in Gainesville and tailgating at an annual homecoming party that draws big-name talent like Snoop Dogg. As Berman, the oldest child of two University of Florida alumni, started submitting college applications, the stateÂs flagship university was at the top of his list. And he was in good company. At UF and Florida State University, which received record numbers of applicants this year, slightly fewer in-state students are getting in, while more of their out-of-state peers are receiving acceptances. Applications were up at other state schools, too. The University of Central Florida, which has a rolling admissions policy, received about 34,338 applications by mid-April, up about 16 percent from the same point last year, and also on track to set a record. ÂIt looks like we will become a little more selective this year than last year just because of the sheer increase in applications,ÂŽ said Gordon Chavis, associate vice president for enrollment services at UCF. The growing number of applications is tied to more out-of-state students applying to the stateÂs most prestigious universities. Guidance counselors say students are applying to more schools, with some moved by fears they wonÂt get into their dream schools and others lured after seeing images of distant campuses on social media. Many Florida universities use forms that can be submitted to multiple schools, making it easier for students to send in a few extra applications. At UF, 40,849 students vied to become Gators this year, up about 20 percent from last year. Most of the increase was from out-of-state students: The school received 12,279 applications from non-Florida students, up from 9,182 last year. From that pool, 5,212 were admitted, compared with 3,627 the previous year. More Florida residents applied, too: 21,163 this year, up from 20,200 last year. But 276 fewer were admitted. In all, about 42 percent of applicants, both in-state and out-of-state, received acceptances. The residencies of more than 7,000 UF applicants, and whether they were eligible for less expensive in-state tuition, has not been determined, and 948 of those students were admitted. The surge in applications was even more staggering at FSU, which received nearly 10,000 more applications this year compared with last. FSU has Ânever had an increase this big,ÂŽ said John Barnhill, assistant vice president for academic affairs, whoÂs worked in admissions there for 40 years. He chalked it up to several factors, including the relative affordability of the stateÂs university system, state Âpre-eminenceÂŽ funding that has allowed FSU to hire new faculty and the decision to accept the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success application. More than 140 other schools, including UF, accept the same forms and essays from that system. Like their rivals in Gainesville, a growing number of out-ofstate students want to become FSU Seminoles: 14,782 non-Florida residents applied for summer or fall admissions, up 35 percent from last year and 359 more of them received acceptance letters. More Florida students wanted to bleed garnet and gold, too. FSU received 34,611 applications from in-state students, up 18 percent from last year. Of that pool, 13,861 were accepted, 185 fewer than in 2017. The admitted out-ofstate students had, on average, slightly lower GPAs than their in-state counterparts, with comparable test scores. However, the acceptance rate for in-state students was higher: 40 percent, compared with 24 percent for non-Florida applicants. Other reasons for why applications are soaring, university officials say, also could include the LegislatureÂs decision to permanently expand the top Bright Futures scholarship to cover 100 percent of tuition, providing a bigger lure for high-achievers to stay in state. And the pool of potential applicants also grew slightly, with 203,022 seniors in Florida public high schools, up about 3 percent from 2017. First-time freshmen are submitting more applications, with 35 percent submitting seven or more applications in 2016, up from 18 percent a decade ago, according to a report from the National Association for College Admission Counseling. Berman, the Lake Mary senior who applied to seven schools, including two outside Florida, received just one rejection: His top choice of UF. Though he finished high school with a weighted GPA of 4.2 and scored 32 on the ACT, in the 98th percentile, he said he knew getting into UF would be tough. Still, the news stung. ÂIt was defeating, for sure,ÂŽ Berman said. His mom, Kelly Berman, said she realizes the competition has intensified since she was a student. ÂWe tell our kids we wouldnÂt have gotten in if we applied now,ÂŽ she said. The 18-year-old decided on UCF, which offered him a generous scholarship and invited him to join LEAD Scholars, a leadership development program. He took down the Gator decor in his bedroom, replaced it with a Knights pennant and installed a UCF license plate holder on his car.

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSstates widely blamed on the Russian government, which denied the allegations. University of South Florida Distinguished Professor Susan MacManus presented at the conference as well. Overcoming a public perception that every piece of election equipment can be hacked is one of the challenges for elections supervisors, according to MacManus. As stories permeate through the media about various emails and banks being hacked, that creates an often jaded public, MacManus said. But Turner explained the voting system is not online, which he said lessens its vulnerability. ÂItÂs a closed system,ÂŽ said Turner. ThereÂs also a paper trail for votes in both Charlotte and Sarasota counties. That was a key recommendation by cybersecurity experts to Congress last year, along with safeguarding against internet-related security vulnerabilities, and conducting statistical post-election audits. Turner said they audit results with paper ballots to ensure accuracy. ÂA lot of measures are in place and have been for a long time,ÂŽ he said. There is an online network for accessing voter registration data through the state. But Turner said Â”ows of online trafÂ“c are monitored to pinpoint any potential intrusions. ÂI feel conÂ“dent about the voting system in Sarasota County,ÂŽ Turner said. Every election cycle is unique, but Stamoulis said with this one, Âwe are on notice.ÂŽ According to DHS, the nationÂs election infrastructure increasingly uses technology for efÂ“ciency and convenience, and this reliance on digital technologies can introduce cybersecurity risks. But the risks are not unique to elections, nor to Florida, the DHS ofÂ“cial said. ÂAs has been widely reported, we do expect that foreign adversaries and criminals will continue to demonstrate an interest in our nationÂs election infrastructure and in reducing conÂ“dence in our elections. In response, election ofÂ“cials across the country have been diligent in improving the resilience and audit-ability of the process.ÂŽ State and local election ofÂ“cials have taken a number of steps to secure their elections against cyber and other threats, according to DHS, which did not provide any additional details on that. The Department of Homeland Security ofÂ“cial said they have been working with state and local ofÂ“cials for more than a year Âto Â“ll in any potential gaps with our services and expertise.ÂŽEmail: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comFOCUSFROM PAGE 1 strong chief of staff hobbled his presidency. President Trump also seems to have a high opinion of his own decision-making style. Trump is quite dismissive of his chief of staffÂs attempts to bring order to the White House. Like Carter, Trump wants to be the center Â„ not his chief of staff. The upside of that management style is seen in foreign policy. I never thought Carter had strong negotiating skills until I read Lawrence WrightÂs ÂThirteen Days in SeptemberÂŽ which chronicles the peace negotiations at Camp David. HereÂs hoping our current President has the same success with Korea. President Carter wanted a strong economy. He averaged over 200,000 new jobs created every month over his four years in ofÂ“ce. Better than Reagan, yet we somehow think Reagan did a better job of creating jobs. CarterÂs new job creation record is similar to President Trump, but slightly better. Many readers might think Paul Volcker and Ronald Reagan broke our high interest and high inÂ”ation rates. But it was Jimmy Carter who hired Paul Volcker to break the inÂ”ationary spiral. In Paul VolckerÂs autobiography, he writes that Carter blamed VolckerÂs insistence on raising interest rates during the election season for CarterÂs loss to Reagan. Now we have President Trump, who also has a Federal Reserve chairman, focused on raising rates right into the mid-term election and beyond. VolckerÂs interest rate increases created back-toback terrible recessions. Will the current rise in interest rates have the same effect? President Carter, a Democrat, was frustrated by a Congress that his party controlled. President Trump, a Republican, is stymied by a Congress that his party controls. We often want to think that right now is the Â“rst time. Right now is a unique moment never before seen. Today is indeed unique, but history is full of similar moments. Share your thoughts.

In your ÂOur ViewÂŽ editorial that same day, you stated Âwe feel Â”im-Â”ammedÂŽ over what has transpired with the new Springs at Port Charlotte complex near Peachland/ Veterans Boulevard. Flim-Â”ammed? No, you were completely duped. You were scammed. More importantly, with your assistance, so was the public. The developer, commissioners, Chamber of Commerce, etc., all pushed this project, claiming it was workforce housing. Not only did the Sun swallow it all, hook, line and sinker, but it also made matters worse by vigorously championing the project, and denouncing its doubters. Your editorial only supports the notion that the Sun wouldnÂt know a swamp if it sank in one. This gem sums it all up, ÂAs the search continues for workforce housing in Charlotte County, we would ask our county commissioners to get developersÂ hype in writing next time.ÂŽ ThatÂs it? ThatÂs the SunÂs idea of holding our public ofÂ“cials accountable? How about instead asking them to resign for gross failure to properly perform their duties, or worse yet, deliberately lying to the public having known all along that this very large project was not going to be workforce housing? The Sun may state Âwe are more than disappointedÂŽ in our local swamp-dwellers, but it appears willing to do nothing about them except continuing to feed them. Jim Fuccillo Port CharlotteEditor: Good grief! Roseanne Barr needs to look in the mirror. To defame a woman of Valerie JarrettÂs character and integrity is not a joke. It is bigoted ignorance. It is a further symptom of the discord sown by the Âman who would be king.ÂŽ America is a great country. We donÂt need lies and false slogans from a man solely interested in his personal gain and inner-directed narcissism. A man who spends Sunday morning tweeting vitriol instead of going to church, as all our other real presidents did. We need leadership from someone who will restore civility in the public discourse, integrity in our politics, and honesty in government as we try to repair our fractured society. Think about this in November.Ed N. White Rotonda WestEditor: We were honored recently to attend a phenomenal concert by the 13th Army Band, which is headquartered in Miramar, Florida. Chief Warrant OfÂ“cer Stephen K. Rivero is the commander and conductor Editor: The giant has awakened. Realize it or not North Port has reached a point in its young life where it is becoming a political force to reckon with. Instead of being the Âred-headed stepchild of Sarasota CountyÂŽ we are becoming a voting powerhouse. We, as North Port voters, now control over 34 percent of the total active voters in all of State House District 74 for which seat our Vice Mayor Linda Yates is currently running for. We have the opportunity as a city to motivate our friends and neighbors to get out and vote to put one of our own in the state House of Representatives. Linda has done an exemplary job as one of our city commissioners for the past eight years, serving as mayor twice and currently vice mayor. Linda served on regional boards, including Sarasota/ Manatee MPO, Manasota League of Cities and served on the Florida League of Cities Board of Directors, who awarded her the ÂHometown HeroÂŽ award three times for her work in protecting our home rule powers in the state of Florida. Personally, after working with Vice Mayor Yates I can attest to her integrity, holding onto her core values and truly looking at both sides of an issue and acting accordingly. She doesnÂt always vote to please myself or close constituents. One thing IÂve learned is, Linda, will vote whatever she feels is fair to both sides of an issue. That, you can take to the bank. Thank you for listening.Gary Stouch North PortEditor: People love to say, whatÂs wrong with the world today? Many seem to believe that all would be well if parents would simply beat the heck out of their kids so they could learn ÂrespectÂŽ like we did in Âour day.ÂŽ Some even think teachers should be allowed to inÂ”ict corporal punishment. Yes, a good Â”ogging will make little Johnny a better boy. Meanwhile, on a single page of todayÂs Sun we learn that the ÂteacherÂŽ who drowned two raccoons and an opossum, as students looked on, will not face criminal charges since the killings were Ânot cruel or inhumane.ÂŽ (Really? That video was pretty disturbing.) Well, after all, it does make sense since the man who cut off the tails of four kittens with rusty scissors was acquitted. Another story on the same page reveals that parents of children killed at Parkland are not happy about the release of a new video game called ÂActive Shooter.ÂŽ Who would even think this game has a place in the world? So maybe, gentle folks, beating your kids so theyÂll learn respect like you did is not the answer. How about teaching compassion and empathy? HereÂs a novel idea. Start by example.Eileen Collins Rotonda WestEditor: What follows is somewhat personal, but affects every Sun reader. My wife and I enjoy gambling at our areaÂs four Seminole Indian casinos (Tampa, Immokalee, Brighton and Hollywood). For years we have gleefully gone, although we tend to lose. To us, gambling is fun and the Indians treat us wonderfully. Are you aware, and it must be emphasized, that in the last eight years alone the Seminoles have paid billions (thatÂs with a ÂBÂŽ) in state taxes? Obviously, they are a vital component of why we Florida residents donÂt pay a dime in state income tax. But here we have a strange disconnect. Florida has a Republican governor and a Republican-controlled legislature. Would it not be logical to assume politicians of such persuasion are conÂ“rmed Âcapitalists?ÂŽ ShouldnÂt they be preaching Âcompetition?ÂŽ Yet they allow our Seminole brothers to enjoy a near virtual monopoly on casino gambling in Florida. In the interest of full disclosure, my wife and I regularly (as do many Floridians) visit Biloxi, Miss., to gamble. The small town of Biloxi has more than a dozen casinos. ThatÂs more casinos than the entire state of Florida has. We lose there, too, but at a noticeably slower pace. Why? This can be answered in a single word Â„ competition. ItÂs time our state government opens Florida to competitive casino gambling. These businesses are open 24/7. Realized beneÂ“ts include even more tax revenue and more jobs.Bob Filkins Punta Gordaof the Florida National GuardÂs 13th Army Band.

Thank you, MOAA, for providing Charlotte County with this event.Barbara Durham Punta GordaCrime trends continue down throughout USOUR POSITION: Local crime statistics reflect national trend.When Gov. Rick Scott announced at a press conference recently that FloridaÂs crime rate had declined again last year, he was happy to draw connections to increases in public safety funding and police programs. Local officials puffed chests too. It was good news. That is undeniable. Good news for Florida and Southwest Florida, which also recorded decreases. But we shouldnÂt be too quick attribute good crime stats to specific state or local programs. Trends here roughly mirror national statistics. And the reason? There are plenty of theories, but no one really seems to know. The most recent statistics from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement showed overall crimes in Charlotte County dropped 12.6 percent, from 3,062 in 2016 to 2,675 last year. Violent crime and burglary/larceny also dropped. Sarasota County decreased 5 percent, from 8,987 in 2016 to 8,513 total crimes this year. Punta GordaÂs overall rate went up 17 percent, but the crime rate weighted for population was below the county as a whole. North Port saw a decrease of 5 percent. A spokeswoman for the Sarasota County SheriffÂs Office attributed the decrease to Âintelligence-led policing.ÂŽ The Punta police chief cited community education. North Port Public Information Officer Josh Taylor spoke to the Sun about the prevalence of cameras and social media, but acknowledged they Âhesitate to take too much credit.ÂŽ Which is both honest and wise. The rate of violent crime in the United States is Âdramatically lowerÂŽ than the peaks of the 1980s and early 1990s, NPR reported last year. ÂIn 1991, for example, the rate was 785 per 1,000 Â„ roughly double what it was in 2016,ÂŽ NPR said. The murder rate, nationally, was the lowest in decades. Forbes reported the rate of violent crime victimization dropped 71 percent from 1994 to 2013. FBI statistics indicate property crime rates declined by half from 1993 to 2016. The Bureau of Justice Statistics puts the decrease at 74 percent, according to the Vox website. Crime is way down. And why? Explanations vary widely. Among the theories: Â€ More police and better policing techniques. (Except that a Brennan Center study attributed only a 0-10 percent crime decrease in the 1990s to higher numbers of officers. And the popular Âbroken windowsÂŽ policing policy has been discounted statistically.) Â€ The deterrence of the death penalty. (Except crime rates have dropped in states without the death penalty.) Â€ Increased prosperity in a growing economy. (Except that crime rates also dropped, unexpectedly, during the Great Recession.) Â€ Tougher sentences that keep offenders behind bars. (Except states with lower incarceration rates have experienced the similar declines.) Â€ Less exposure of children to lead after the Clean Air Act. (Yes, that is a reputable theory.) Â€ The decease in alcohol consumption. (Same.)CRIME | 7
The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINTWEEK IN REVIEW Within 17 days in the autumn of 1975 Â„ Â“rst in Sacramento, then in San Francisco Â„ two separate handgun-wielding women attempted to assassinate the president. Had either succeeded, and each was close enough to have done so, the nation would have had a third president in 14 months, and a second consecutive one who had never been on a national ticket. Gerald Ford survived to continue with an 895-day presidency during which the nation regained its equilibrium after Watergate and Vietnam. The only president to have reached the Oval OfÂ“ce without Â“rst appearing on a ballot for either vice president or president, Ford became vice president (under the 25th Amendment) when scandals forced Richard NixonÂs vice president, Spiro Agnew, to resign. Ford became president when Nixon resigned. Had Ford been assassinated, his vice president, Nelson Rockefeller (also conÂ“rmed by Congress under the 25th Amendment), would have become president. Today, with the nation seemingly more irritable and depressed than at any time since then, it is well to fondly remember the 38th president, which Donald Rumsfeld does in ÂWhen the Center Held: Gerald Ford and the Rescue of the American Presidency.ÂŽ Readers can tickle from this book a reason for looking on the bright side of, or at least for an inadvertent beneÂ“t from, the 45th president. Ford was the most accomplished athlete ever to hold the nationÂs highest elective ofÂ“ce: For three seasons he was the center (hence RumsfeldÂs title) on University of MichiganÂs football teams, two of which were undefeated national champions. Yet because of a few public stumbles related to a footballweakened knee, he is remembered as awkward. His lack of rhetorical nimbleness, one instance of which might have cost him the 1976 election, elicited condescension from critics, few of whom were, as he was, graduates of Yale Law School. When he was sworn in as president on Aug. 9, 1974, only 36 percent of Americans expressed trust in government, down from 77 percent in 1964. And the inÂ”ation rate was 10.9 percent, the highest since 1947: nothing destroys faith in government faster than its currency failing as a store of value. To cauterize the Watergate wound, Ford pardoned Nixon, an act both statesmanlike Â„ it spared the nation additional years of rancor Â„ and politically damaging: FordÂs job approval plunged 31 points. And he was clueless about inÂ”ation, urging people to drive less and buy cheaper groceries. Rumsfeld, who served as FordÂs White House chief of staff and then secretary of defense, delicately says this Âperplexed a number of our countryÂs top economists.ÂŽ In January 1975, in his Â“rst State of the Union address, delivered three months before the last helicopters lifted the remnants of the U.S. presence in Vietnam off the roof of the Saigon embassy, Ford said: ÂThe state of the Union is not good.ÂŽ Ronald Reagan agreed and began planning his attempt to wrest the 1976 Republican nomination from Ford. That fate had dealt Ford a miserable hand of cards did not discombobulate him, largely because, as Rumsfeld says, he had not Âcome to the Oval OfÂ“ce with an outsized view of himself.ÂŽ Never having campaigned other than in MichiganÂs 5th Congressional District (Grand Rapids), he nevertheless won the 1976 GOP nomination, and probably would have won the election if, during a debate with Jimmy Carter, he had inserted the word ÂpermanentlyÂŽ in his statement that Eastern European peoples did not Âconsider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union.ÂŽ Rumsfeld, who calls Ford Âthe president we always wanted that we didnÂt know we had,ÂŽ tiptoes up to a comparison with todayÂs Washington when he says the city Âcan be a magnet for sizable personalitiesÂŽ and that FordÂs Âsaving graceÂŽ was that he was not like that: ÂHis calm, thoughtful and steadfast nature was remarkable in Washington, D.C., even in his own day, and some might assert even more so now.ÂŽ Do tell. The current presidentÂs contribution Â„ unintended but not insigniÂ“cant Â„ to AmericaÂs civic health might be to help cure the country of unreasonable fastidiousness regarding presidential aspirants. For a while, at least, many voters will be less inclined than they once were to measure candidates with a political micrometer that encourages voters to be excessively Â“nicky, rejecting candidates for minor blemishes, only to wind up with one who is all blemish. More than four decades on from FordÂs accidental presidency, this man who wore plaid trousers and wore power lightly is a reminder that the nation can always do worse than to embrace normality. George WillÂs email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Gerald Ford: Accidental president wore power lightly George Will How evil is MS13? Last year, two gang members in Texas reportedly murdered a teenage girl as an offering to Satan. According to prosecutors, the gang leader (known as ÂDiabolicoÂŽ) told the young girl that Âthe BeastÂŽ wanted Âa soulÂŽ before having his partner shoot her in the head and dump her body on a street corner. As charges were read against the two, the Houston Chronicle reported, they Âlaughed, smiled and waved for the media cameras.ÂŽ MS-13 gang members, police have said, also stabbed a Maryland man more than 100 times before decapitating him and cutting out his heart Âƒ lured a 34-year-old man to his already dug grave Âƒ and stoned an 18-year-old boy to death and dumped his body under a bridge. MS-13 is a demonic death cult. And President Trump has Nancy Pelosi defending its membersÂ humanity. When Trump declared at a White House roundtable, ÂYou wouldnÂt believe how bad these people are. These arenÂt people. These are animals,ÂŽ he was clearly referring to MS-13. But the media and Democrats took the presidentÂs quote out of context and declared that he had referred to all illegal immigrants as animals. The Associated Press tweeted that ÂTrump referred to those crossing US border illegally as Âanimals.ÂÂŽ The New York Times tweeted, ÂTrump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the countryÂs borders Âanimals.ÂÂŽ Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) declared, ÂWhen all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they werenÂt Âanimals,Â and these people arenÂt either.ÂŽ By the next morning, news organizations were walking back their stories. The Associated Press announced it had Âdeleted a tweet from late Wednesday on TrumpÂs ÂanimalsÂ comment about immigrants because it wasnÂt made clear that he was speaking after a comment about gang members.ÂŽ But not Pelosi, the House minority leader. Even after it was clear that Trump was referring to gang members, the California Democrat still claimed the president had called Âundocumented immigrantsÂŽ animals, declaring at a news conference that his remarks were ÂinhumaneÂŽ and that ÂweÂre all GodÂs children Âƒ Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?ÂŽ Of course, we are all created in the image and likeness of God. That is true of MS-13 members. It was also true of Osama bin Laden, Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler. But can you imagine Pelosi standing up in outrage to defend their humanity? Referring to evil men as ÂanimalsÂŽ is a common colloquial expression. The Oxford DictionaryÂs deÂ“nition of the word ÂanimalÂŽ includes Âa person without human attributes or civilizing inÂ”uences, especially someone who is very cruel, violent, or repulsive.ÂŽ It offers, as an example of its proper use: Âthose men have to be animals Â„ what they did to that boy was savage.ÂŽ Which is exactly how Trump used the word. To this day, Pelosi has neither retracted her remarks nor admitted she was wrong. So now Trump is giving as good as he got. ÂI noticed recently where Democrats, Nancy Pelosi as an example, are trying to defend MS-13 gang members,ÂŽ Trump declared at a Long Island event last week. ÂI called them animals the other day and I was met with rebuke. They said, Âthey are people.Â They are not people. These are animals.ÂŽ At a rally in Nashville this week, he announced to a cheering crowd that Pelosi Âloves MS-13,ÂŽ pointing out that, ÂI said theyÂre animals, and she said Âhow dare you say that?ÂÂŽ He then asked the crowd, ÂWhat was the name?ÂŽ The crowd responded, Âanimals!ÂŽ Expect to hear that refrain at many Trump rallies in the months ahead. Through their dishonesty, Democrats such as Pelosi have handed the president a winning issue. A Harvard/Harris poll Â“nds that 56 percent of Americans agree with Trump that it is fair to call MS-13 ÂanimalsÂŽ (including 47 percent of Hispanics, and 41 percent of Democrats). Millions of Americans canÂt understand why Democrats seem more hostile toward Trump than a vicious gang that carries out savage killings. Is Trump wrong to say Pelosi Âloves MS-13ÂŽ? Sure. But with her deceitful attack, she gave him the pretext to make that claim. There is a lesson here for Democrats: Trump says enough outrageous things that Democrats shouldnÂt have to make them up. When the president has you defending the Âdignity and worthÂŽ of MS-13 members, youÂre doing something wrong. Marc A. Thiessen is a Washington Post columnist.DemocratsÂ dishonesty hands Trump a winning issue Marc A. Thiessen Â€ Fewer unwanted children born following Roe v. Wade in 1973. (See above.) The problem with all is that research is, as the Atlantic magazine put it, Âinconclusive.ÂŽ ÂThereÂs no real consensus among scholars about what caused one of the largest social shifts in modern American history,ÂŽ the magazine wrote. It is Âa mystery.ÂŽ It is doubtful many taxpayers would be eager to unravel speciÂ“c state or local law enforcement programs or decrease police stafÂ“ng to reÂ”ect the overall drop in crime. Fear of crime is a powerful votermotivator. Studies also show public perception of the prevalence of crime is far higher than reality. A Pew Research Center study found 57 percent of Americans in 2016 believed crime had risen since 2008; in fact, it underwent a double-digit decline. Nevertheless, it is worth contemplating whether law enforcement budget trends should be brought in line with the crime-rate decline, considering costbeneÂ“t correlations.CRIMEFROM PAGE 6 adno=54535598 STARTING AT $24,750!!

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 Florida regulators have approved plans for three new hospitals in Lee and Collier counties, a decision that reverses the stateÂs view four years ago that no new health centers were needed in the region. This means that Lee Health may proceed with plans to build an 82-bed hospital on a medical campus it is already building in Estero. But it also means that HCA Healthcare, which left Southwest Florida more than a decade ago, may open its own 80-bed hospital and inpatient psychiatric facility less than three miles away on a site near Corkscrew Road and U.S. 41. The hospital also would become Lee CountyÂs third receiving facility for people undergoing involuntary mental health evaluations under the stateÂs Baker Act. The Florida Agency for Health Care AdministrationÂs ruling, which must approve most new hospital construction, said on Friday that both hospitals are needed to meet the care for the rapidly growing population and to diversify the regionÂs health care offerings: ÂThe Agency Â“nds that approval of both applicants, collectively, will increase accessibility and availability of inpatient services while enhancing health care and fostering competition to promote quality and cost effectiveness to residents of the subdistrict.ÂŽ A third approved plan from Braden Clinic in Ave Maria calls for the construction of a 25-bed health center in that community. AHCA actually approved all six hospitalrelated applications Â“led throughout the state in February. Other approved plans involve health centers in Marion, Volusia and Orange counties. Lee HealthÂs president and CEO, Larry Antonucci, praised AHCAÂs decision to approve his organizationÂs project. He did not mention the approval of HCAÂs. ÂThis is great news for the residents of the Estero and Bonita Springs community. We have recognized the need for a hospital in South Lee County for a very long time,ÂŽ Antonucci said in a written statement. ÂThis new hospital bed tower will integrate beautifully with Lee Health Â„ Coconut Point, and provide necessary acute care beds to the community.ÂŽ HCA did not comment on the announcement Friday. Braden Clinic administrators also welcomed the news in an email that read, in part: Â(It) is clear that the Braden HospitalÂs application was successful in demonstrating to the state what the residents of Ave Maria and Immokalee have known for a very long time: it is time to build a hospital in Eastern Collier County.ÂŽ The decision is not the Â“nal say in the matter. Challenges to it may be Â“led through June 25. Lee Health has not yet decided its next steps, spokeswoman Mary Briggs said. NCH Healthcare System, which operates the largest hospitals in Collier County and competes with Lee Health for patients in south Lee County, had opposed all three bids. It plans to challenge the approvals by arguing that the new hospitals will provide nothing that isnÂt already offered in the region. In a lengthy statement issued Friday afternoon, NCH administrators also questioned the motives behind AHCAÂs ÂunprecedentedÂŽ approvals of all hospital proposals Â“led in Florida this year. ÂIt is clear that by these across-the-board approvals that the applications were not approved on their merit or under statutory criteria,ÂŽ the NCH statement reads, in part. It added: ÂThere is simply no case to be made that a new $100 million-plus hospital should be built in Lee County.ÂŽ Though the NCH statement does not mention it, Gov. Rick Scott has called for changing state law to make it easier for new hospitals and trauma centers to open. A proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution to scrap the existing approval process failed to make it onto the November ballot. Whatever the reasoning, Estero community activists who have been seeking a south Lee County hospital for years welcomed the news. The nearest hospitals in south Fort Myers and Naples are roughly a half hour drive away. ÂAfter 10 years of Â“ghting for this, itÂs great to hear. Unfortunately, itÂs not over yet. But hopefully this will be upheld,ÂŽ said Nick Batos, an Estero Village Council member and its liaison to Lee Health. As for the two approvals for Estero, he said: ÂTo have two within a couple of miles of each other is kind of astonishing. I donÂt understand that.ÂŽThe playersThe 102-year-old Lee Health, formerly known as Lee Memorial Health System, is a public hospital system governed by an elected 10-person governing board. It operates four acute-care hospitals in Lee County and a variety of specialty clinics and health centers, including The Golisano ChildrenÂs Hospital of Southwest Florida. Lee Health also operates the only trauma center between Sarasota and Miami. It frequently faces criticism for being a ÂmonopolyÂŽ because it operates roughly 95 percent of the adult acute-care hospital beds in Lee County. For now, its only competitor is the 88-bed Lehigh Regional Medical Center in Lehigh Acres. Nashville-based HCA Healthcare is the nationÂs largest hospital operator with 179 hospitals, 120 freestanding surgery centers and a number of medical facilities in 20 states and the United Kingdom. Its Florida holdings include Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte, Englewood Community Hospital and Doctors Hospital of Sarasota. Scott led what was then known as Columbia/HCA between 1987 and 1997. He left amid a federal investigation into its Medicare billing practices, which ultimately forced the company to pay $1.7 billion in penalties and Â“nes between 2000 and 2002. At the time, it was the largest health care fraud in the nationÂs history, according to Politifact. HCA formerly operated the now-demolished Southwest Florida Regional Medical Center and what was once known as Gulf Coast Hospital. Lee Health acquired both in 2006 in a $535 million deal. Braden Clinic has been in Ave Maria for several years and provides a number of outpatient medical services, including primary medical care, urgent care and pediatric care. It also offers lab services. Its hospital would serve Ave Maria, Immokalee and the surrounding rural communities, according to its website. It is expected to offer 24/7 emergency services, a pharmacy, a lab, rehabilitation care, imaging, an infusion center and cardiorespiratory.Florida approves three new hospitals for Lee and Collier countiesBy FRANK GLUCKNEWS PRESSNORTH PORT Â„ It is that time of year again. The North Port City Commission will spend most of next week pouring over budget proposals for the 2019 Â“scal year, which begins in October. From June 4-6, commissioners will meet with staff starting at 9 a.m. in City Hall. Each department will bring their proposals for the budget, which commissioners will give their opinion on. City Manager Pete Lear will then compile a budget based on those opinions to present to commission for approval. With all the proposed changes, the preliminary budget would be $161,352,528. However, requests often face tough battles seeking approval. An increase in the millage rate is also proposed in the document. The millage rate is the amount per $1,000 of property value that is used to calculate local property taxes. The total proposed increase is 0.2236, which would help cover the costs of the 2019 North Port Aquatic Center and increased service levels for the city. This would bring the total millage rate from 3.4070 to 3.6306, bringing in $14,545,980 more in ad volorem revenue. The meetings will be held in Room 244 and are open to the public.

SARASOTA Â„ The Sarasota County School Board will continue to look at its policy ahead of TuesdayÂs meeting. The board has been reviewing policies. During its last policy workshop, the board looked at several chapters. Since it began looking at its policy, the board has approved to advertise several of the chapters, and has been combing through Chapter 9, which has several parts. Following its policy workshop, the board will move into its afternoon meeting. On TuesdayÂs agenda, there are two items of new business dealing with the State College of Florida articulation agreement and the one year extension of Apex Learning credit recovery program. The SCF articulation agreement has been the subject of several board discussions following an issue with the Pine View school. Back in April, SCF decided to no longer allow dual-enrollment classes on Pine ViewÂs campus. The choice to end the classes at Pine View caused the board to review the articulation agreement. During its May workshop, the board looked over the articulation agreement and the changes made for the 2018-19 school year. On Tuesday, the board will approve the new changes to the articulation agreement for the coming school year. Also under new business is the approval of the Apex Learning credit recovery program. The approval is for another year of use of the program at Sarasota County Schools. The program makes it possible to offer a personalized credit recovery that addresses the diverse learning needs of all credit recovery students, according to board documents. Tuesday the board will approve the extension of the program for another year. The Sarasota County School Board will meet at 4 p.m. for its policy review workshop, followed by its regular board meeting at 6:30 p.m. in The Board Chambers, 1980 Landings Blvd., Sarasota. Meetings are broadcast live on The Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33, and live streamed on the districtÂs website www. sarasotacountyschools. net.

PUNTA GORDA Â„ ItÂs often the start of a journey for those with dreams and aspirations of glory. The Sugar Bert Boxing national qualiÂ“er began Saturday at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, where as many as 500 boxers in nearly 100 classes tested their mettle, with an opportunity to earn points, championship belts and the chance to participate for the national title to be held in November at the Park Inn by Radisson Resort in Kissimmee. However, those boxers will have to distinguish themselves in the ring during the third of four regional qualiÂ“ers, if theyÂre to move up to the next level. Charlotte County will take on a far more active role as a site for a tournament that has brought amateur boxing back into the mainstream consciousness. It was announced Friday that Punta Gorda, which also hosted this event in 2016, will become the home of the Sugar Bert event in 2019 and 2020. The tournament will not only provide the Charlotte County area with some prestige within the boxing community, but bring a much welcomed economic boost during whatÂs considered to be a relatively slow time of the year. ÂSugar BertÂŽ Wells, a former Golden Gloves boxer and the eventÂs promoter, said the boxers who go through his promotion, have gone on to the Olympic Trials, Olympics and professional ranks. This is due in part to the sponsors who play a large role in helping the top-ranked Â“ghters get to national tournaments, providing them with exposure against elite competition. Prominent corporate names and renowned brands have been involved with the tournament including Nike, Publix and USA Boxing, the nationÂs ofÂ“cial sanctioning body of amateur boxing. ÂThis event brings in the best boxers in the country,ÂŽ said Wells. ÂWeÂre going to take these sponsorship dollars and spread it among those who are ranked. This will allow boxers to go to these USA Boxing events and compete.ÂŽ Wells said these types of events are important in providing the Â“ghters with an opportunity to get exposure, allowing them to compete against boxers of a similar caliber, preparing them for the next level of competition. ÂThis is a belt tournament,ÂŽ said Wells.ÂŽNobody has the belts we have. YouÂre also being ranked so you can go to Disney World to box and the top-ranked ones will be sponsored.ÂŽ Many of the boxers, as young as age 8, male and female, came to the conference center to weigh-in and get used to the two rings that will be used during the weekend. Weigh-ins continue Saturday morning for the walk-ups who register, with bouts beginning at 2 p.m. both days and going until roughly 8 p.m., with belts being given throughout the entire weekend. The boxers also have an opportunity to meet people such as Nelson Lopez Jr., whose Raynelo promotions has served as a conduit in helping Â“ghters enjoy success, by making the transition seamless as they leave the amateur ranks and turn professional. ÂSome of the kids I work with came through this event,ÂŽ said Lopez. ÂErickson Lubin, a top contender in the lightmiddleweight division, came through these tournaments. This is where they start their career. When someone beats a contender, people talk about it. It gets publicity.ÂŽ Bob Alexander, a longtime boxing announcer and Charlotte County resident, said he was thrilled the tournament will make a home in Punta Gorda for the next few years, which is expected to bring in up to $1.5 million in economic impact this weekend alone. ÂItÂs a part of the vision of Sugar Bert Boxing to make Punta Gorda a boxing city and weÂre very excited for the community to be a part of that,ÂŽ Alexander said. ÂSugar Bert Boxing wants to give amateur boxing a shot in the arm and make sure it gets back to the heights of the past.ÂŽPunta Gorda to be site for boxing tournament in 2019 and 2020By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT SUGAR BERT BOXING SPORTS CAMPSFOOTBALLThe CHS football team is hosting its annual 2-man golf scramble Saturday, June 2 at Port Charlotte Golf Club.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 BIG PINE KEY, Fla. Â„ Hurricane Irma took Dirk LockardÂs truck, his tools, his house Â„ Âit folded like a house of cardsÂŽ Â„ and turned the working class island he called home for the past 16 years into a scene of devastation. When the Category 4 storm swept through Big Pine Key in September with 140 mph winds and 5 feet of storm surge, it wiped out houses, crumpled trailers and scattered boats. Still, Lockard, 58, isnÂt that worried about this yearÂs hurricane season. He doesnÂt have much more to lose anymore. ÂWe have minimalized considerably,ÂŽ he said, sitting in front of his current home, a new trailer. Although Big Pine, one of the hardest hit areas in the storm, still has work to do before the community is fully recovered from Irma, the rest of the Florida Keys appear to be back online and ready for hurricane season. The county promises issues from last year Â„ a Â“ght over debris removal contractors and anger over re-entry procedures Â„ wonÂt be repeated. Money is trickling in from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the residents in FEMA-subsidized housing are down to a just a few. Most important, said Martin SenterÂ“tt, emergency management director for the Keys, residents had their storm preparation muscles Â”exed. ÂPrior to Irma 90 percent of the people in the Florida Keys have never experienced a major hurricane. Now 90 percent of people have. Just that institutional knowledge, that right there is an incredible strength. We have a whole community now that gets it.ÂŽ That includes Lockard and his wife. He said that if the spaghetti models show another hurricane headed for the Keys, theyÂll rent a truck and haul their trailer home and remaining belongings to safety. And they probably wonÂt come back. Like many on Big Pine Key, Lockard canÂt afford to rebuild a home that meets the hurricane-resilient codes that have been considerably strengthened up in the decades since his house was built Â„ even though he had insurance and cash in the bank before the storm. But his land alone is still valuable, so heÂs selling it to pay for a new life somewhere more affordable. The Keys economy has taken plenty of hits since the storm. Tourism is down, destroyed homes mean less property tax income and only $600,000 in FEMA money has been deposited so far by the county. Despite that, Roman Gastesi, the county administrator, said he is conÂ“dent that Monroe has enough money to handle the next hurricane. For one thing, the taxes and fees from the many people (like Lockard) selling their property are offsetting the loss of property tax revenue to the county from 1,500 homes that were destroyed and lost value. The county property appraiser is projecting at least 5 percent growth in property values next year, in part because of the replacement of cheaper homes in places like Big Pine with newer, more expensive houses. The county also took out a $40 million line of credit. So far itÂs used about $29 million, and Gastesi said Monroe has such good credit it can always take out another loan. The county applied for $34 million in FEMA reimbursement, Gastesi said. So far itÂs received $600,000, with another $2.2 million on the way soon from the state, through which the money Â”ows. Overall, FEMA says it has given the state $21.4 million earmarked for Monroe. Statewide, FEMA estimates that Irma recovery projects will cost more than $333 million. Assurances from ofÂ“cials that the island chain is prepared for the season aside, residents are still wary. The dark side of that risk is still visible in the Avenues, the center of the damage in Big Pine Key. Blue tarps abound. Here and there, properties have tents set up with sleeping bags and belongings inside next to destroyed homes. Like LockardÂs place, many of the lots have Âfor saleÂŽ signs. The stacks of ruined cars, trashed mobile homes and soggy, moldfurred pieces of home siding no longer line the roads. Most of the ruined homes have been demolished. On some lots, concrete pillars have sprouted Â„ hinting at the higher elevation home that will soon follow. On others, the carcasses of ruined homes still stand untouched. Lynn Ackiss, whose family owns the former trailer park turned FEMA trailer lot on Big Pine, said sheÂs down to 14 tenants of the original 20 trailer households. All but one of the six families that left have moved out of the Keys because they couldnÂt Â“nd affordable housing. If another hurricane comes, Ackiss said she expects her residents to evacuate and not return. ÂWith everything theyÂve been through, theyÂll just pack up and head out,ÂŽ she said.Grim upside for the Keys this hurricane season: Because of Irma, thereÂs less to loseBy ALEX HARRISMIAMI HERALD AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 13, 2017, le photo, debris surrounds a destroyed structure in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in Big Pine Key, Fla.

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 2 Money issues often stand in the way of homeownership. A survey by rental service Apartment List found that 80 percent of millennial renters want to buy a home, but most say they canÂt afford to. What you may not realize is that many Â“rst-time homebuyer programs and grants offer Â“nancial help, and you may be eligible for various types of assistance. Here are nine Â“rst-time homebuyer programs and grants designed to help you land a great mortgage and get a place of your own.1. FHA loanIn an FHA loan, the Federal Housing Administration insures the mortgage. The FHA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHAÂs backing offers lenders a layer of protection, meaning that your lender wonÂt experience a loss if you default on the mortgage. FHA loans typically come with competitive interest rates, smaller down payments and lower closing costs than conventional loans. If you have a credit score of 580 or higher, you could be eligible for a mortgage with a down payment as low as 3.5 percent of the purchase price. If your credit score is lower than 580, you still might qualify for an FHA mortgage, but the down payment would be at least 10 percent of the purchase amount.2. USDA loanWhile not well known, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a homebuyer assistance program. While the program focuses on homes in certain rural areas, you donÂt need to buy or run a farm to be eligible. The USDA guarantees the home loan. There may be no down payment required, and the loan payments are Â“xed. Applicants with a credit score of 640 or higher typically get streamlined processing. With a credit score below 640, you still can qualify for a USDA loan, but the lender will ask for extra documentation about your payment history. Keep in mind that there are income limitations, which can vary by region.3. VA loanThe U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) helps active-duty military members, veterans and surviving spouses buy homes. The VA guarantees part of the loan, making it possible for lenders to offer some special features. VA loans come with competitive interest rates and require no down payment. You arenÂt required to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI), and a minimum credit score isnÂt needed for eligibility. If it becomes difÂ“cult to make payments on the mortgage, the VA can negotiate with the lender on your behalf.4. Good Neighbor Next DoorThe Good Neighbor Next Door program, sponsored by HUD, provides housing aid for law enforcement ofÂ“cers, Â“reÂ“ghters, emergency medical technicians and pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers. Through this program, you can receive a discount of 50 percent on a homeÂs listed price in regions known as Ârevitalization areas.ÂŽ Using the programÂs website, you can search for properties available in your state. You must commit to living in the home for at least 36 months.5. Fannie Mae or Freddie MacFannie Mae and Freddie Mac are government-sponsored entities. They work with local lenders to offer mortgage options that beneÂ“t lowand moderate-income families. With the backing of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, lenders can offer competitive interest rates and accept down payments as low as 3 percent of the purchase price. Fannie Mae also provides homeownership education for Â“rst-time homebuyers through its ÂHomePath Ready BuyerÂŽ program.6. Energy-efficient mortgage (EEM)An energy-efÂ“cient, or Âgreen,ÂŽ mortgage is designed to help you add improvements to your home to make it more environmentally friendly. The federal government supports EEM loans by insuring them through the FHA or VA programs. The key advantage of this mortgage is that it lets you create an energy-efÂ“cient home without having to make a larger down payment. The extra cost is rolled into your primary loan. Some improvements you can make include installing double-paned windows, new insulation or a modern heating-and-cooling system.7. FHA Section 203(k)If youÂve run the numbers to see how much house you can afford and have determined a Â“xer-upper is best for your budget, the Section 203(k) rehabilitation program may be a good Â“t. This type of loan, backed by the FHA, takes into consideration the value of the residence after improvements have been made. It then lets you borrow the funds youÂll need to carry out the project and includes them in your main mortgage. The down payment for a 203(k) loan can be as low as 3 percent.8. Native American Direct LoanSince 1992, the Native American Veteran Direct Loan program has helped Native American veterans and their spouses buy homes on federal trust lands. The VA serves as the lender. If youÂre eligible, you wonÂt be required to make a down payment or pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI). This Â“rst-time homebuyer loan also offers low closing costs and a 30-year Â“xed-rate mortgage.9. Local grants and programsIn addition to the various programs provided by the federal government, many states and cities offer help to Â“rst-time homebuyers. Before buying a home, check your stateÂs or communityÂs website for information on housing grants and programs available in your area. You also might consider contacting a real estate agent or local HUD-approved housing counseling agency to learn more about programs in your area that might apply to your situation.Nine grants and programs to help you buy your first homeBy RACHEL HARTMANBANKRATE.COM Board members of the Englewood Area Board of Realtors recently traveled to our nationÂs capital to attend the Realtors Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo. The event is held to give members of the National Association of Realtors an opportunity to have an active role to advance the real estate industry, public policy and the association. Special issues forums are held, including the Federal Legislative & Political Forum, which featured speaker William Brock Long, administrator of Federal Emergency Management Agency. Administrator LongÂs address covered a broad range of disaster and emergency management topics from the National Flood Insurance Reauthorization to Federal Disaster Relief, Rebuilding Assistance and Mitigation in the aftermath of the record-breaking 2017 hurricane season. EABOR president Kathi Obendorfer attended the expo and met with Congressman Vern Buchanan to discuss issues that directly affect private property rights. ÂAttending the NAR Legislative Meetings was a great way to meet and network with many Association Presidents from around the country,ÂŽ Obendorfer said. ÂConnecting with so many Realtor professionals makes you realize you are making a difference for homeowners by Â“ghting to protect private property rights.ÂŽ The NAR Board of Directors at its meeting in Washington took a major step toward increasing professionalism in real estate by giving associations new teeth for enforcing Code of Ethics violations, and it also positioned Realtors for the future by adopting the associationÂs Â“rst dues increase in eight years. Obendorfer will share what she learned at EABORÂs next membership meeting in June. EABOR is a trade organization that has been the local voice for real estate since 1962.

They are inexpensive and will make a signiÂ“cant difference. A better, more involved option is to gut everything in this recessed area. Around the edges of the rectangle, apply bead-board. Have an electrician redirect the wiring that powered the Â”uorescent tubes to an overhead electrical box that you can use to install contemporary lighting Â“xtures. And third, replace the loud, bold colors that cover some of your rooms with neutral colors that tend to endure over time. You can get ideas for this by visiting the model homes in your area.

This results in a very dated look. This photo depicts a similar situation where the orescent lighting has been gutted. The resultant rectangle is covered with bead-board and outtted with contemporary lighting.Mortgage borrowers with enough money to make a down payment larger than the minimum must decide whether to increase the down payment or pay points. This is an investment decision that should be based on which option yields the higher rate of return. Â€ Borrowers with long time horizons, who donÂt have enough money to make a meaningful increase in down payment (see below), should consider paying points. In todayÂs market, the 4.50 percent rate on a 30-year Â“xed-rate loan to a prime borrower could be reduced to 4 percent by paying 2.6 points Â„ that is 2.6 percent of the loan amount. Over the next 12 years, that would earn a return of 11.5 percent. If the mortgage is terminated after Â“ve years, however, the interest saved would not cover the cost of the points, resulting in a negative rate of return. The rate of return from an investment in points on a fixed-rate mortgage can be derived using calculator 11c on my website. Â€ Investing a small amount in a larger down payment yields a modest return. A borrower putting 5 percent down who elects to increase the down payment to 6 percent or 7 percent earns a return equal to the mortgage rate, or just a little higher, regardless of how long the mortgage is in force. The return is a little higher than the mortgage rate because of upfront fees scaled to the loan amount. Â€ To generate a higher yield, the investment in a larger down payment must be large enough to flip the loan into a lower mortgage insurance premium or interest rate category. Mortgage insurance premium categories, expressed in down payments, are generally 3 percent to 4.99 percent, 5 percent to 9.99 percent, 10 percent to 14.99 percent, and15 percent to 19.99 percent. Where lenders pay for the mortgage insurance and price it in the rate, they use the same categories. If the borrower taking a 4.5 percent mortgage at zero points with 5 percent down raises the down payment to 10 percent, the loan shifts into the 10-14.99 percent mortgage insurance premium category. Since the premium is lower, the return on investment over 12 years rises to 7 percent. The rate of return from an investment in down payment on a fixed-rate mortgage can be derived using calculator 12a on my website Â€ Increasing the down payment on a loan slightly larger than the conforming loan limit increases the rate of return. The conforming loan limit is the maximum size mortgage that can be purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. A loan for $453,101 will carry a rate about 0.25 percent higher than a loan of $453,100, which is the current maximum. Hence, a borrower contemplating a down payment that would result in a loan amount slightly above the conforming loan limit should consider raising the down payment by enough to get under the limit. Â€ Borrowers forced into a non-qualified mortgage earn the highest return on investment in a larger down payment. Last week I wrote about mortgages that for one reason or another did not meet the requirements established by Dodd-Frank for the standard mortgage designation. One consequence of this designation is that we now have lenders specializing in non-qualiÂ“ed mortgages who operate in a manner very similar to sub-prime lenders before the Â“nancial crisis. One striking point of similarity is that mortgage insurance is not required but variability in interest rate associated with differences in down payment is very large. A result is that the rate of return to the borrower on an investment in a larger down payment is very high. As an example, one lender of non-qualiÂ“ed mortgages whose price sheets I managed to access quoted 6.625 percent on a high credit score transaction with 10 percent down, and 5.375 percent with 20 percent down. The rate of return to the borrower on the down payment increase would be 12.2 percent calculated over 12 years. With a low credit score borrower, the rates were 8.375 percent and 7.375 percent, resulting in a return on investment of 15.9 percent. The bottom line is that mortgage borrowers who fall into the highest price categories, whether because of their credit history, weak documentation or whatever, can earn the highest rate of return on investments in larger down payments.

Page E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 4 PHILADELPHIA Â„ Photographer Kate Devlin takes the time to consider all four corners of a room. Bare or cluttered, tight or spacious, the next corner always offers a different view. Is the best photograph of a living room the one that reveals a glimpse of a stairway and not the open kitchen that lies directly ahead? Or should she shoot both angles? An online real estate listing typically has 25 photographs these days, another reason to consider multiple perspectives. Devlin recently moved about the living room in a Fitler Square rowhouse calmly and quietly. She settled her tripod in a spot where the staircase sat out of range, then found a shot that captured the width of the living room, but also the stairs in a mirrorÂs reÂ”ection. Devlin, who lives in Fairmount, estimates that she shoots some 525 homes a year. Real estate photography isnÂt a new Â“eld, but it carries new clout in the internet age as searching for homes online has become a near-universal experience. According to a 2017 National Association of Realtors survey, 95 percent of home buyers used the internet to look for property; 68 percent are doing so on their phones. The new imperative? Entice potential buyers to keep swiping. Sixty percent of Realtors, according to another 2017 NAR survey, recommend leaving photos to the pros, in part, because the pictures wonÂt be viewed solely by potential buyers. Photographer Drew Callaghan, based in Queen Village, noted that many photos survive in online databases after sales close and serve appraisers, insurance Â“rms and developers in their research. Callaghan, who worked as an real estate agent before shifting to photography, remembers simpler times. To prep a house for market, he recalls hiring a cleaner and setting up an open house. If a home was photographed, he said, the focus was primarily the exterior. Realtor Mike McCann remembers this era, too, in the 1990s, with the old, printed black-and-white listings that included only thumbnails. Back then, he said, the going rate for a color brochure was $1,800. Today, while some photographers may charge hundreds, others can be commissioned for under two Benjamins. Now McCann has every livable home on his roster shot professionally. When he sits down with clients, he primes them on DevlinÂs work as part of package of services they can expect. Professional photography, along with home staging, are both trends reÂ”ective of larger industry shifts to try to make homes competitive for buyers with limitless listings at their Â“ngertips, said Jessica Lautz, director of demographics and behavioral insights at NAR. When prospective homeowners show a listing they like to a loved one, Lautz said, it isnÂt too different from friends opening Tinder to discuss their matches. Photo-led listings can be quickly devoured, but theyÂre also easy to share. ÂIt makes it easier to visualize yourself in the property, but also makes (buyers) more willing to be visit the house as well,ÂŽ Lautz said. Devlin, 39, earned a bachelorÂs degree in painting at Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia but had been working in restaurants before she found real estate photography about eight years ago. ÂA friend of mine needed somebody and said, ÂDo you have a wide-angle lens?ÂÂŽ Devlin said, thinking back. ÂIÂve been doing it ever since.ÂŽ Wide-angle lenses can help make a room look spacious, but shooters must be careful not to take things too far. Realtors donÂt want to face angry home buyers who feel tricked when they see the space in person. With a wide-angle lens, a piece of furniture toward the back of a shot can appear distant, while a telephone near the front can look like a Buick. Even without staging, Devlin moves things around. At a townhome in Fairmount, Devlin removed items that could appear clutter-ish, such as kidsÂ toys and outerwear. SheÂll position a colorful bowl of produce to catch the cameraÂs eye but also nix items that could be too bright, such as a bottle of blue Listerine or orange liquid soap. Trash cans, shoes, weight scales Â„ sheÂll hide those. The homeownersÂ job is to hide themselves. Weather has a strong effect on DevlinÂs output. Sometimes, Realtors want to reschedule if the light isnÂt right. Others tell her to go for it, but even in these cases, Devlin said, sheÂll often return to shoot the exterior. The sweet spot for both inside and out is a day with blue skies and light cloud cover, something she articulated while waiting for a cloud to mosey toward the sun on a recent bright afternoon.

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 Q: We bought our home a year ago with a fenced in yard. Recently, our neighbor demanded that we remove the fence from his property stating it is two feet over the line. I looked at our closing papers and saw that our survey does show our fence is on his property. The fence company, the seller, and our title company are telling us they will not help. We bought the house this way, and it does not feel right for us to have to pay to have the fence moved. Do we? Â„ Stan A: Yes, you will have to pay to have the fence moved because you became responsible for it when you became the owner. When you entered into the contract to purchase the property, you and the seller agreed to a bundle of rights and responsibilities. The very situation you are now dealing with now was addressed in your contract and is part of the reason that you had the home surveyed during the closing process. The typical contract lets you notify the seller if there is an issue, such as yours, and would require the seller to Â“x the problem before closing. However, if you failed to notify the seller and went to closing, you waive this requirement. It becomes your problem, not the sellerÂs. The fence company installed the fence with the approval of the seller, so they are not responsible, and this would be excluded from your title insurance policy because it is plainly showing on the survey. While I donÂt think you did it intentionally, you accepted this problem and will now need to move the fence. While the typical real estate contract seems like a simple Â“ll-in-theblank form, it has been crafted over the years to address almost every issue that arises during the process. There are numerous rights and responsibilities in those pages, and they should be carefully read. If, after reading them, you still donÂt fully understand what the contract requires, you should Â“nd a professional to help you through the process to make sure that a seemingly unimportant issue, such as this one, doesnÂt cause signiÂ“cant problems later.

SINGERSUN SENTINEL I stand watching clouds.ÂŽ Devlin has a quietly pleasant temperament, an attribute on a job that, in theory, is supposed to be in and out, but often calls for interactions with residents experiencing major life changes. Although Devlin shoots many empty spaces, she also enters occupied homes where homeowners are going through a divorce or a tenant has just learned the landlord is selling. And she sees Âa big assortment of care,ÂŽ Devlin said. ÂIÂve seen bongs being left out on the table, and itÂs like, really?ÂŽ Homeowners Sumi Maeshima and Atsushi Moriyashu in Fitler Square seemed at peace when they explained that they were returning to their home country, Japan. So did Kathie Daley in Laverock when she described how she hopes to downsize to a modest farmhouse in Bucks County. Currently, Daley and her spouse, Richard Sand, live in an 8,645-square-foot historic mansion. Realtor Rob Lamb, who works with Devlin often, asked her to capture the estate. ÂAnybody can have the tools,ÂŽ Lamb said. ÂBut she has this slight artistic, creative touch that folds itself into the photos and becomes a part of the story.ÂŽ When Devlin submits photos after a shoot, Lamb and his team develop the sequence for the listing with the sellerÂs approval. The goal is that each photo will draw the viewer to the next, Lamb said. ÂYou want to get them deeper and deeper into a stream of photos,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf you donÂt catch them there, onto the next house.ÂŽ DevlinÂs bread and butter continues to be wide room-length shots, but she has begun taking more details for social media. That intense closeup of carvings, tiles, or the azalea bush through the window might not work in an online listing, but it could kill on Instagram. To shoot the dining room of the historic mansion, Devlin carried in a vase of Â”owers to provide a centerpiece and turned off the lights. She tries to avoid the glow light Â“xtures can create, relying on a combination of Â”ash and long exposure times. She set her camera for a 1 .6-second exposure time, so the details of the panoramic mural wallpaper Â„ from a series also brought to the White House Â„ would come into view. Devlin is careful to note that the work she does for listings isnÂt the work sheÂd do for Architectural Digest. Even if thereÂs careful staging, sometimes she has to pull back and make sure that each closet is included. ÂSometimes I take photos that arenÂt terribly pretty,ÂŽ she said, Âbut I need to show the room works.ÂŽREADYFROM PAGE 4 TNS PHOTOReal Estate photographer Kate Devlin takes aim at the kitchen in a home she is photographing that is for sale in Laverock, Penn sylvania, for realtor Robert Lamb.

But it is the hot buzz word in home selling, especially when it comes to the world of professional home staging. Staging is a marketing and selling tool, often performed by a professional home stager, in which an atmosphere or lifestyle is created in a home to appeal to potential buyers and allow them to be able to envision themselves in a space. Lifestyle selling techniques go hand in hand with the process, involving props as well as accessories and accents to achieve a certain look. The good news? You donÂt have to be a professional to help make your space enticing to potential buyers. Often using lifestyle elements is the key. Looking for ideas? Here are some tips to keep in mind. 1. Determine the mood you want to create or message you want to send within your space, then incorporate appropriate lifestyle elements. For example, in a bathroom the message you may want to is the space is spalike. In this instance, your lifestyle element could be candles or bath salts. 2. Use colorful accents. Color done purposefully can help appeal to potential buyers. Accents should be used sparingly. 3. Develop a clear color scheme. The ideal color scheme consists of typically three colors. 4. Consider the end user. The foundation of lifestyle selling is to appeal to the potential buyer, considering how they will likely wish to live and function in the home and create a space that will appeal. A key question to ask yourself in this process is: ÂWho will buy this home?ÂŽ 5. Create the look of a model home. Staging is neutralizing and depersonalizing as well as adding lifestyle elements that give the feeling of a space that is lived in. In choosing your lifestyle elements, look to create the same look and feel as you would see in a model home. 6. Dress shelves and bookcases. Large empty shelves and empty bookcases can serve as a visual hurdle for many potential buyers. Showing potential buyers how they can be functional is helpful. 7. DonÂt ignore areas such as kitchens and closets. Many potential buyers Â“nd elements such as organized and generous storage to be a bonus. 8. Focus on main or key areas. Once inside a home, there are often key areas or main rooms that will inÂ”uence a potential buyer early in their walkthrough experience. Make sure these rooms are strong. 9. Create an appealing point of entry. Typically buyers make a decision about a home within the Â“rst three minutes. First impressions are key. 10. Use decorative elements such as artwork, books and accessories to help tell your story. Lifestyle selling techniques is about telling a story, one that will appeal to a potential buyer and allow them to be able to envision themselves in a space.

About 1.5 million Americans throw some stuff in a bag, drive to an airport, board a commercial airliner and Â”y somewhere every day, while globally about 3 million other people do the same thing. In the early days of commercial aviation, it wasnÂt so easy. Many airports were just large, prepared grass Â“elds, like the network of airports designed and built by the U.S. Army for the U.S. Air Mail Service in the 1920s. These Â“elds, however, were unable to support large passenger planes and unsuitable for commercial aviation. ÂFlying boats with their ability to land on water, during a time when there were few airports around the world, were critical to the development of international passenger air travel,ÂŽ said Thomas Williams, a former U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and Vietnam War veteran, retired civil engineer specializing in road construction and currently a historical Â“ction author with Â“ve titles to his name. In his class ÂThe Age of Flying Boats,ÂŽ Williams explores the development, operation and ultimate demise of these unique commercial airliners. The class is 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. June 12 at Florida Gulf Coast UniversityÂs Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211 in Punta Gorda. Understanding the history of Â”ying boats requires an understanding of the history of Pan American Airways, according to Williams. ÂPan Am started in 1927, using Â”oat planes to provide a scheduled mail and passenger service from Key West to Havana, Cuba,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂThe Â”ying boats were the successors of the spindly Â”oat planes used in that early mail and passenger service.ÂŽ Ultimately, Pan AmericanÂs Â”ying boat passenger service grew to encompass the Caribbean and South America, as well as the Atlantic and PaciÂ“c oceans, according to Williams. ÂPan AmericanÂs president Juan Trippe developed both the Atlantic and PaciÂ“c Â”y boat passenger routes,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂTo do that across the PaciÂ“c, from San Francisco to Manila, Trippe oversaw the building of hotels, restaurants and maintenance and fueling facilities on remote islands like Midway, Wake and Guam.ÂŽ TrippeÂs objective was to compete with the cruise ships then in trans-Atlantic and trans-PaciÂ“c service. Consequently, the Â”ying boats developed by Pan Am were models of elegance, with all the amenities, including sleeping berths, galleys, lounges, card rooms and even the Â“rst airborne bathrooms. Uniformed chefs and stewards attended to the passengersÂ needs, according to Williams. ÂUnlike todayÂs commercial airliners, these were luxurious aircraft that only the wealthiest could afford to board,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂA trans-PaciÂ“c fare was more than $10,000, oneway per person in todayÂs dollars.ÂŽ Later this summer, Williams also presents ÂNaval Warfare During World War IÂŽ July 9 and ÂCAT: The Secret Airline of the CIAÂŽ Aug. 7. Both classes are 10 to 11:30 a.m. To register or for more information about ÂThe Age of Flying Boats,ÂŽ call 941-505-0130.Opulent flying boats kick-start commercial aviation FGCU Publicity AssistantRichard Ramos COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSLBTD Club meetsThe next meeting of the Lemon Bay Touchdown Club will be 7 p.m. June 5 in Coach Don SouthwellÂs classroom No. 235 at Lemon Bay High School, 2201 Placida Road, Englewood.

Page 22 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 10Despite all that caffeine, our local caf culture is so mellow that youÂll Â“nd competing coffee shop owners supporting each other, in a spirit of coffeehouse camaraderie.Cool beans!The timeless Bean on 41, in Towles Plaza, Punta Gorda, had sat there comfortably for 18 years. Grizzled owner Bob Gilmore who started the business with his wife, Elly used to say, ÂWe donÂt do anything fancy here, and we donÂt take a lot very seriously. We live in a town thatÂs pretty laid back, and the people who frequent our business come here to relax.ÂŽ It was so homey that the Gilmores had hauled in a china cabinet out of their house. But recently Bob decided to sell the business. At about the same time, Punta Gorda guitarist/vocalist Tiki Tom Watson who performs all over town with partner L. A. Daniels had plans. He dreamed of opening his own piece of Hawaii Â„ where heÂd spent 20 years in broadcast TV and media Â„ in Punta Gorda. A regular at MercerÂs Fresh Roasted Coffees in Port Charlotte, heÂd worked with owner Wayne Mercer for two months, learning the daily grind of coffee making. HeÂd made a business plan for a Tiki TomÂs Kona Caf, aiming for a little spot beside Burnt Store Publix, where he worked. ÂI showed the plan to Wayne, and he said, ÂAre you sure you really want to start something new? You might want to talk to Bob at The Bean, IÂm pretty sure heÂs going to be selling soon.ÂŽ Watson gives full credit to Mercer, more friend than competitor, for his buying The Bean Watson remembers, ÂThe irony is, Jan. 15 was the date in my business plan for securing Â“nancing, and Apr. 1 was the date I wanted to open the doors on a new shop. As it turned out, my wife, Moni, and I met Bob here on Jan. 15 and shook hands that day. And Easter Sunday, April 1, turned out to be our start date!ÂŽ Though not strictly according to plan, Tom and MoniÂs The Bean has its own piece of Hawaii, too Â„ the Aloha Corner, with a surfboard-toting parrot, bags of HawaiiÂs own vanilla-macadamia Lion Coffee and Â„ whatÂs this? Â„ a caricatured Wayne Mercer presiding over packs of his own Colombian, Ethiopian and Balinese ground coffee for sale. The Bean ($), 239314-6808, 2705 Tamiami Trail No. 413, is open Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday to noon. MercerÂs, where the beans come fromCoffee brewing has come a long way since Wayne Mercer Âs dad, a local cowpoke, brewed his in a tin can hung over the campÂ“re. When they Â“rst heard about the Âroast your ownÂŽ movement, Wayne got a little roaster, just big enough for a pot. He and his wife, Valerie burned through the thing in three weeks. Soon it was, ÂWeÂre gonna need a bigger roaster.ÂŽ They educated themselves, visited coffee houses, read up on coffee. They became the very model of modern coffee connoisseurs. Seven years ago, they opened MercerÂs Fresh Roasted Coffees in Port Charlotte, where they also serve breakfast and lunch, in a living room setting as cozy and relaxing as The BeanÂs. Now they have a 5-pound and an 11-pound roaster, affectionately nicknamed ÂBig Daddy.ÂŽ They donÂt buy coffee by the pound anymore; they buy it in 150-pound sacks from all over the world and now distribute through The Bean as well. MercerÂs ($), 941-2867054, 4678 Tamiami Trail, is open Monday to Saturday 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Coffee that keeps on givingItÂs another ÂWhat are the odds?ÂŽ story that you canÂt make up. North PortÂs unique bean-to-cup caf, Los Dos Cristianos Coffee Shop is named for its two founders Â„ Christian Ibarra born in Mexico, and Christian Mortimore born in England. Unknown to each other, both their mothers named their sons after Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, best known for his childrenÂs stories. AndersenÂs ÂThe Ugly DucklingÂŽ must have seemed perfectly suited to their infant sons, whom they doubtless hoped would one day become beautiful swans. Thus their logo of a pair of swans. But itÂs even more remarkable than that. Los Dos Cristianos is the only coffee shop in Southwest Florida that imports all its own green Latin American (mostly Honduran) coffee; roasts, grinds and serves it; and returns proceeds to the children of Honduras. They know where each bean came from and all the farmers and workers who raised it. Mortimore started out selling green beans and fresh-roasted coffee to local restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and churches, and last year opened the North Port shop now run by his wife, Danielle. Not only do they give back to the country of origin, they also feature baked goods from local stores that many might consider competition: EnglewoodÂs Manatee Beans & Brews AbbeÂs Donuts of Port Charlotte, and Punta GordaÂs Zoet Sweet Boutique Los Dos Cristianos Coffee Shop ($), 941-661-1782, 1120 Plantation Blvd., is open Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Send restaurant and bar news and recommendations to columnist Sue Wade at suewade47@aol. com.

Page 24 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 12We should know by now June is the ofÂ“cial start of hurricane season. Problem is, our pets may not know that. As pet owners it is our role to assure their safety. They are family members whose welfare must be included in our planning. Like ours, the plan for your pets should include a disaster kit checklist. Each checklist should contain any medications, medical records, leashes, harnesses and carriers for transporting your pet. Also, remember to pack a current photo of you and your pets, along with their descriptions, in case you become separated. Include several daysÂ supply of food and water, and donÂt forget a manual can opener. Stock up on nonperishable items well ahead of time. Having your petsÂ own bed and toys, along with grooming tools, can relieve stress. If you plan to leave the area, remember to Â“nd a safe place, ahead of time, that will accept you and your pets. Do not wait until disaster strikes to do your homework. If you will be staying with friends or relatives, contact them far in advance to ensure they are prepared for your arrival. If you plan to check into a hotel, research their pet-acceptance policies. Ask if they vary during a disaster. Call as early as possible for a reservation, as other prepared pet owners may be doing the same. If you plan to Âride out the stormÂŽ at a local shelter, contact your local emergency management and obtain a list of pet-friendly shelters in your area. These are shelters that allow people and their pets, at the same location. The number of pet friendly shelters are increasing so it is important to stay updated. (All of Sarasota CountyÂs evacuation shelters are pet-friendly.) We learn from experience, so if you have any doubt as to the seriousness of NOT planning for your pet, here are some recent reminders left by Hurricane Irma just last year. Â€ Dozens of pets in Palm Beach County, Florida, abandoned and left behind. Â€ Thousands abandoned in the Caribbean. Â€ Hundreds had to be airlifted to safety in the U.S. Â€ Many were not that lucky. Authorities in Palm Beach County were so disturbed by the number of pets that were left behind that they strongly considered charging the owners with abandonment. Knee-jerk reaction? Maybe, but abandonment is animal cruelty. Also, emergency personnel dealing with the needs of multiple animals in distress does interfere with efforts to save human lives. It has been a dozen years since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, yet today, animals are still suffering and people are feeling the effect. In addition to the tens of thousands of animals that died in the storm, thousands of pets were abandoned. Dogs have formed dangerous packs. They have increased in numbers through indiscriminate breeding and continue to roam deserted neighborhoods throughout the city. Severe public health and safety hazards have been created by the packs of dogs and increased dog bites. These animals have become the forgotten victims of a hurricane. We naturally think of our petÂs needs, but, disaster planning for all types of animals is important. This includes farm animals, zoos, wildlife centers and animal sanctuaries. For the safety of the animals, yes, but also because loose and frightened animals can cause many problems, like blocking roadways during the emergency. Since Hurricane Andrew hit Homestead Florida in 1992, cities, counties, states and the Federal Emergency Management Agency have all enacted animal disaster plans. Suncoast Humane Society played a major role in animal rescue and relief following Hurricane Charley in 2004. We hope that our aging shelter will be ready to help when needed again. Like all shelters in times of disaster, our animal care center will be immediately Â“lled to capacity with displaced animals. Existing animal shelters will not have room to temporarily board your pet. Again, advanced planning for you and your pet is a must. Remember to keep your petÂs disaster kits fresh and prepared for any disaster. If you would like additional information, including a copy of ÂYou and Your Pet, Preparing for Disaster,ÂŽ please contact Suncoast Humane Society at 941484-7884 or visit us online at www.humane.org. Phil Snyder is the executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society. He has more than 40 years of experience in animal care, control and welfare, including 15 years with the Humane Society of the United States. To learn how you can help homeless animals at your humane society, visit www.humane.org or call 941-474-7884.Hurricane season: Is your pet ready?

Feeling Fit PORT CHARLOTTE Â€ PUNTA GORDA Â€ NORTH PORT Â€ ENGLEWOOD Â€ ARCADIA SUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2018 A WEEKLY SUN PUBLICATION WWW.FEELINGFIT.COMFawcett Memorial Hospital announced today that it is a recipient of the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award, a designation that recognizes superior performance of hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays. The distinction places Fawcett Memorial Hospital among the top 5 percent of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. During the 2014 to 2016 study period, Healthgrades found that patients treated in hospitals receiving the Patient Safety Excellence Award were, on average: 55.6 percent less likely to experience an accidental cut, puncture, perforation or hemorrhage during medical care, than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals 52.4 percent less likely to experience a collapsed lung due to a procedure or surgery in or around the chest, than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals. 62.8 percent less likely to experience catheter-related bloodstream infections acquired at the hospital, than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals 54.3 percent less likely to experience pressure sores or bed sores acquired in the hospital, than patients treated at non-recipient hospitals. During the study period (2014 to 2016), Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award recipient hospitals demonstrated excellent performance in safety provided for patients in the Medicare population, as measured by objective outcomes (risk-adjusted patient safety indicator rates) for 13 patient safety indicators deÂ“ned by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). If all hospitals achieved the average performance of award recipients for each of the 13 Patient Safety Indicators evaluated, during the 2014 to 2016 study period, 126,342 patient safety events could have been avoided. ÂWe applaud the hospitals who have received the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award,ÂŽ said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical OfÂ“cer, H ealthgrades. ÂTheir dedication and commitment to providing safe care creates tangible results for patients.ÂŽ Fawcett Memorial Hospital is a 237-bed, full-service acute care hospital serving Charlotte County and the surrounding areas since 1975.

PSA is produced by normal, as well as malignant, cells, and elevated levels can indicate cancer may be present. Confusion about the screening, speciÂ“cally the PSA test, arose in 2012 when a government-sponsored network of disease prevention experts stopped recommending the PSA test, determining that its potential negatives outweigh its beneÂ“ts. The controversy that erupted over the best way to screen for the disease may have given it a chance to Â”ourish, according to the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer released last week by National Cancer Institute. The report states that while cancer deaths overall continue to decline, prostate cancer deaths are creeping up again after years of decline. Especially troubling is an increase in men diagnosed with late-stage prostate cancer that has spread to other organs. The aforementioned network, the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF), tweaked its screening guidelines slightly last year, saying the beneÂ“ts of getting screened may Âslightly outweigh the risks.ÂŽ ÂThe physicians that make up this board are primarily internists and family physicians,ÂŽ noted Dr. Andrew Weitzel, a Port Charlotte urologist. ÂThereÂs not even a urologist or specialist on the panel.ÂŽ Indeed. The USPSTF website says ÂTask force members come from the Â“elds of preventive medicine and primary care, including internal medicine, family Questions surround prostate cancer screeningMEARNS | 3Anyone caring for a loved one with AlzheimerÂs disease likely can relate to former Â“rst lady Nancy Reagan, who called the illness suffered by former President Ronald Reagan Âa truly long, long goodbye.ÂŽ Mrs. Reagan, who died Sunday at age 94, was a tireless advocate for AlzheimerÂs patients and their families, recalls Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Ronald Petersen, who knew the Reagans well. ÂIn many respects, Mrs. Reagan was the optimal caregiver, providing love and support for the president in a fashion similar to many other Americans whose families deal with this difÂ“cult diagnosis,ÂŽ he said. In 2015, an estimated 5.3 million Americans had AlzheimerÂs disease, according to the AlzheimerÂs Association. As the disease progresses, once-simple tasks become difÂ“cult or impossible. Practical tips can help your loved maintain a sense of independence and dignity. To limit challenges resulting from AlzheimerÂs: Â€ Schedule wisely. Establish a routine to make each day more predictable and less confusing. Schedule the most difÂ“cult tasks, such as bathing or medical appointments, for the time of day when your loved one is most calm. Â€ Adapt your routine, as needed. For example, if your loved one insists on wearing the same outÂ“t every day, consider buying a few identical outÂ“ts. When your loved one is bathing, switch the worn outÂ“t for a clean one. Â€ Take your time. Expect things to take longer than they once did. Schedule more time to complete tasks, so you donÂt need to hurry your loved one. Â€ Involve your loved one. Allow your loved one to do as much as possible with the least amount of assistance. For example, perhaps your loved one can dress alone if you lay out the clothes in the order they go on. Â€ Limit choices. The fewer the options, the easier it is to decide. For example, provide two outÂ“ts to choose between Â„ not a closet full of clothes. Eliminate belts or accessories that are likely to be put on incorrectly. Â€ Reduce distractions. Turn off the TV, and minimize distractions at mealtime and during conversations, so your loved one can better focus on the task at hand. To keep your loved one with AlzheimerÂs safe: Â€ Prevent falls. Avoid scatter rugs, extension cords and any clutter that could cause your loved one to trip or fall. Install handrails or grab bars in critical areas. Â€ Use locks. Install locks on cabinets that contain anything potentially dangerous, such as medicine, alcohol, guns, toxic cleaning substances, dangerous utensils and tools. Â€ Check water temperature. Lower the thermostat on the hot-water heater to prevent burns. Â€ Take Â“re safety precautions. Keep matches and lighters out of reach. If your loved one smokes, make sure he or she does so with supervision. Have an accessible Â“re extinguisher and smoke alarms with fresh batteries. Caring for the CaregiverAlzheimerÂs caregivers need all the support they PHOTO PROVIDEDAnyone caring for a loved one with AlzheimerÂs disease likely can relate to former rst lady Nancy Reagan, who called the illness suered by former President Ronald Reagan Âa truly long, long goodbye.ÂŽWhen a loved one has AlzheimerÂs disease, practical tips can help patient, caregiverFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK HELP | 3Government and other scientists are proposing a new way to define AlzheimerÂs disease Â„ basing it on biological signs, such as brain changes, rather than memory loss and other symptoms of dementia that are used today. The move is aimed at improving research, by using more objective criteria like brain scans to pick patients for studies and enroll them sooner in the course of their illness, when treatments may have more chance to help. But itÂs too soon to use these scans and other tests in routine care, because they havenÂt been validated for that yet, experts stress. For now, doctors will still rely on the tools theyÂve long used to evaluate thinking skills to diagnose most cases. Regardless of what tests are used to make the diagnosis, the new definition will have a startling effect: Many more people will be considered to have AlzheimerÂs, because the biological signs can show up 15 to 20 years before symptoms do. ÂThe numbers will increase dramatically,ÂŽ said Dr. Clifford R. Jack Jr., a Mayo Clinic brain imaging specialist. ÂThere are a lot more cognitively normal people who have the pathology in the brain who will now be counted as having AlzheimerÂs disease.ÂŽ He led a panel of experts, working with the AlzheimerÂs Association and the National Institute on Aging, that updated guidelines on the disease, published Tuesday in AlzheimerÂs & Dementia: The Journal of the AlzheimerÂs Association.ABOUT ALZHEIMERÂSAbout 50 million people worldwide have dementia, and AlzheimerÂs is the New way of defining AlzheimerÂs aims to find disease soonerBy MARILYNN MARCHIONEAP CHIEF MEDICAL WRITER AP PHOTOin this May 19, 2015, le photo, R.

Contact feelingfit@ sun-herald.com or call 941-206-1135.Feeling FitThis article is in response to questions that are asked most frequently by students of Fusion One, visitors to the Fitness Center and members of the general public. Some question are answered brieÂ”y while others require a bit more explanation. Question One : With the vast number of food items existing, how can I be sure I am eating the right things? Shopping for food can be quite daunting. There are so many things to consider and food items to choose from. Yet, you should not allow the complex array of foods to confuse you. Simply keep in mind that the food items you eat are intended to do the following: provide energy, build body tissues and/or regulate body processes. Your responsibility is to know the food items that will facilitate these functions. You should know, for instance, that protein foods are the building and repairing materials used by the body, and that carbohydrate foods (starch and sugars) and lipids (fats and oils) are its principal sources of energy. You should also know that vitamins and minerals are important for regulating body functions and that water is vital for chemical reactions within the body to take place. It is worth noting that water is also needed to replace that lost through urination, perspiration, defecation and exhalation (breathing). WhatÂs left for you to know are the food items that supply these nutrients and the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for each nutrient. Question Two : Are vitamin and mineral supplements important, and should I use them? Although the nutrients you need is best had from the food you eat, making use of vitamin and mineral supplements are ok; especially if you are unsure as to whether or not you are getting all of the important vitamins and minerals from your diet. Question Three : These days, it is suggested that our food be organic, but what is organic food? Food in its true sense is any organic matter. By organic I am referring to the vast quantities of carbon-based compounds found throughout nature. All living things (plants and animals) are composed of these organic compounds and require the same if they are to stay alive and thrive. When plants and animals die, their remains return to the environment of which they are a part. This cycle helps to ensure the continued replenishment of the vital organic matter. It is quite safe to say that anything organic can be consumed as food by man or other life forms. Regrettably, not all organic matter is suitable for consumption by all organisms. In some cases the digestive system will be incapable of tolerating or digesting, in an adequate manner, a speciÂ“c organic item. Grass, as an example, is incapable of being adequately processed by the digestive system of man. A cow, on the other hand, with its four stomach compartments, is more capable of completely digesting grass and securing its beneÂ“ts. Because organic matter is found in the soil and in most ÂnaturalÂŽ bodies of water, our food Â„ if it is to be at is best Â„ should be had from, or inÂ”uenced by, these reserves of life sustaining matter. Organic food is Â„ primarilyÂ„ any organic matter of plant or animal origin which, when consumed, is capable of yielding energy, building body tissues and/or regulating body processes in the safest and most efÂ“cient manner. The environment within which the plant or animal (food source) is raised, nourished, etc. (and how it is raised or nourished) are important if that food is to be considered organic. Question Four: What are some important tips for eating better? Listed below are a number of Âgood eatingÂŽ tips that have helped many others: Â€ Eat in moderation. Â€ Avoid eating late at night. Â€ Eat your heavy meals during the early parts of the day. Â€ Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly Â€ Avoid eating when angry or upset Â€ Make use of foods low in fat and calories Â€ Consider adding more seeds and nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables and cereal and grains to your diet. Â€ Do not place fruits and vegetables on a surface used to prepare meats; unless it is, Â“rst, thoroughly cleaned. Â€ Eat a wide variety of foods. Â€ A great way to ensure that you are getting most or all of the vitamins and minerals you need is to add to your regular diet, a variety of ÂloadedÂŽ foods. By ÂloadedÂŽ I am referring to foods that yield a large number of nutrients or a high concentration of a few. When these foods are consumed daily, you are ensuring the consumption of important vitamins and minerals. The following is a short list of ÂloadedÂŽ foods for you to consider: 1. BrewerÂs yeast (may not be suitable for some) 2. Blackstrap molasses 3. Fresh vegetable salad consisting of four or more vegetables of varying colors 4. Fresh fruit salad consisting of four or more fruits of varying colors and taste.

If not checked, Candida can enter the blood stream and move to other body components such as the urinary tract, skin, Â“ngernails, toenails, organs, and tissues. It has been postulated that overgrowth of Candida may be both the cause and the effect of Âleaky gutÂ or increased intestinal permeability; however, the lines between cause and effect are often unclear. A 2016 study by two researchers at the Human Microbiology Institute in New York demonstrates, perhaps for the Â“rst time, that bacteriophages, viruses that infect and replicate within bacteria, affect the gut microbiome and can provoke leaky gut. The lack of agreement on which causes which makes treatment confusing, complex and challenging. Some health practitioners focus on treating leaky gut as the cause of Candidiasis, while others focus on the opposite. A paper written by Stephen C. Byrnes, Doctor of Naturopathy, indicates that prolonged use of antibiotics, corticosteroid drugs, birth control pills, and/ or a high sugar diet play signiÂ“cant roles in Candidiasis. Antibiotics have been shown to deplete the gut microbiome or beneÂ“cial gut bacteria which help control Candida yeast overgrowth. As a treatment for Candidiasis, antibiotics have often been proved ineffective, and do not prevent the recurrence of the disease in the body. In fact, many yeast infections have become antibiotic resistant. In contrast, there are myriad herbal preparations which have been used and studied in killing Candida yeast infections and preventing its further proliferation in the body. A 2004 systematic review of controlled clinical trials written by researchers at Peninsula Medical School, Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, Exeter, UK. examined the effects of tea tree oil on Candidiasis. Other herbs reviewed were herbs in the potato family, clove, and bitter orange. All trials had beneficial results with eliminating Candidiasis. Another review by researchers at the Medical Pl ants Research Center in Iran has shown effectiveness of almost 30 herbs used widely there, and a study published in the Chinese Journal of Medicine ascertained that extracts of propolis, a resinous substance collected by honey bee and thyme, among others, showed great efÂ“cacy against Candidiasis. Antibiotics as a treatment for this disease could harm the gut microbiome and pose a threat to health. Conversely, countless encouraging current research, reviews, and clinical trials support herbal treatments for Candidiasis. One of the many sources for this can be found in the Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences in a research paper entitled Candidiasis Phytotherapy: An Overview of the Most Important Medicinal Plants Affecting the Candida Albicans. Before using any herbal supplements or supplements of any kind, it is extremely important to always check with your health care professional.Candidiasis, leaky gut and why herbal is betterBy KAREN ANN GALLAGHER FEELING FIT 2 Wece Dr. Rojas to Punta Gorda!

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 27 medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, obstetrics and gynecology, and nursing.ÂŽ ÂMost urologists follow the American Urology Association recommendations,ÂŽ said Dr. Weitzel, Âwhich weigh risk factors in determining who gets screened.ÂŽ According to the American Cancer Association, prostate cancer occurs more often in African-American men and in Caribbean men of African descent. An even higher risk factor, which applies to all men regardless of racial or ethnic differences, is family history. Having a father or brother with prostate cancer more than doubles a manÂs risk of developing the disease. Obesity and diet and also increase the chances of men developing prostate cancer. ÂFor high-risk individuals starting at age 40, we recommend a digital rectal exam and a PSA every year,ÂŽ said Dr. Weitzel. Generally, men between the ages of 50 and 70 should undergo routine screening every two years. ÂIn our area, we have a high population of men between 70 and 75,ÂŽ noted Dr. Weitzel. ÂIf theyÂre in excellent health and have a family history of longevity, we donÂt automatically cut them off and say they donÂt need a PSA any more.ÂŽ The question the senior patient and his physician have to ask is what to do if the screening comes back positive for prostate cancer. The USPSTF, Mayo Clinic and other organizations recommend not screening men in their 70s. ÂThey donÂt want us to biopsy anyone over 70,ÂŽ said Dr. Weitzel. ÂThatÂs ludicrous. The average life expectancy for men is 79 and creeping up all the time. Men at that age still die from prostate cancer. ÂWe do treat patients in their 70s for prostate cancer,ÂŽ he added. ÂSometimes itÂs as easy as radiation or as easy a shot every six months.ÂŽ When a patient reaches 80, Dr. Weitzel advises against doing a PSA test, because even if the level is slightly elevated, itÂs more than likely what he called an Âindolent cancer.ÂŽ These prostate cancer cells simply stay within the prostate gland and never spread, progress, or cause any harm to the patient. ÂNevertheless, I still leave up to the individual patients,ÂŽ the doctor said, Âbecause I do have patients in their 80s who want the PSA. Sometimes, itÂs just for peace of mind.ÂŽ An elevated PSA test, combined with abnormalities found in the digital exam, can prompt the physician performing a biopsy of the gland, and therein lies the risk. A biopsy can cause pain, bleeding and infection. The last-named is the most serious complication, but Dr. Weitzel said this is rare. Dr. Weitzel, a board-certiÂ“ed urological surgeon, has been practicing for 25 years. He works alongside Dr. Eric E. Coronato at Gulf Coast Urology, a division of 21st Century Oncology. The clinic has ofÂ“ces at 21260 Olean Boulevard, Suite 202A, in Port Charlotte, 713 East Marion Ave., Suite 135, in Punta Gorda, and 720 Doctors Drive in Englewood. All ofÂ“ces may be reached at 941-625-1550. Additional information is available at the Gulf Coast website, www.gcurology21c.com. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

If you know someone whoÂs caring for a loved one who has AlzheimerÂs disease, hereÂs how to help: Â€ Be speciÂ“c when you offer help: If you want to support a friend caring for a loved one, make a concrete offer. For example: Â€ ÂIÂm going to the grocery store. What can I pick up for you?ÂŽ Â€ ÂIÂve got a few free hours tomorrow. May I sit in for you, while you run errands or take time for yourself?ÂŽ Â€ ÂI doubled my meatloaf recipe, so I could share with you. I brought enough to last you for several meals.ÂŽ Â€ ÂDoes your yard need to be mowed? IÂd be happy to take care of it this weekend.ÂŽ Check in with the caregiver: Sending a card or calling a caregiver can be a meaningful way to show support. Emails and text messages work, too; however, personal visits can be better. Contact with the outside world can lift a car egiverÂs spirits. most common form. In the U.S., about 5.7 million have AlzheimerÂs under its current definition, which is based on memory problems and other symptoms. About one-third of people over 70 who show no thinking problems actually have brain signs that suggest AlzheimerÂs, Jack said. There is no cure Â„ current medicines such as Aricept and Namenda just temporarily ease symptoms. Dozens of hoped-for treatments have failed, and doctors think one reason may be that the studies enrolled patients after too much brain damage had already occurred. ÂBy the time that you have the diagnosis of the disease, itÂs very late,ÂŽ said Dr. Eliezer Masliah, neuroscience chief at the Institute on Aging. ÂWhat weÂve realized is that you have to go earlier and earlier and earlier,ÂŽ just as doctors found with treating cancer, he said. Another problem: as many as 30 percent of people enrolled in AlzheimerÂs studies based on symptoms didnÂt actually have the disease Â„ they had other forms of dementia or even other medical conditions. That doesnÂt give an accurate picture of whether a potential treatment might help, and the new definition aims to improve patient selection by using brain scans and other tests.BETTER TESTSMany other diseases, such as diabetes, already are defined by measuring a biomarker, an objective indicator such as blood sugar. That wasnÂt possible for AlzheimerÂs disease until a few years ago, when brain scans and spinal fluid tests were developed to do this. They measure certain forms of two proteins Â„ amyloid and tau Â„ that form plaques and tangles in the brain Â„ and signs of nerve injury, degeneration and brain shrinkage. The guidelines spell out use of these biomarkers over a spectrum of mental decline, starting with early brain changes, through mild impairment and AlzheimerÂs dementia.WHAT TO DO?People may be worried and want these tests for themselves or a family member now, but Jack advises: ÂDonÂt bother. ThereÂs no proven treatment yet.ÂŽ You might find a doctor willing to order them, but spinal fluid tests are somewhat invasive, and brain scans can cost up to $6,000. Insurance usually does not pay because theyÂre considered experimental outside of research. A large study is underway now to see whether Medicare should cover them and when. Anyone with symptoms or family history of dementia, or even healthy people concerned about the risk can consider enrolling in one of the many studies underway. ÂWe need more people in this pre-symptomatic stageÂŽ to see if treatments can help stave off decline, Masliah said.SOONERFROM PAGE 1 HELP FROM PAGE 1Free Yoga Â€ Englewood Beach: Daily at 8:30 a.m.; and Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. 941-473-0135.

The Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida (AAASWFL) is asking the community to wear purple on that day to raise awareness of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. ÂWe associate the color purple with dignity, respect, and royalty,ÂŽ explains Sherry Young, AAASWFL Elder Abuse Prevention Coordinator. ÂAnd those are often the same words we use when describing how to treat our elders. Wearing purple on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is another reminder of how we need to treat our seniors with respect and dignity.ÂŽ Elder abuse impacts millions of people around the world each year. The National Council on Aging estimates that one in ten Americans age 60 and over have experienced some kind of elder abuse, and the U.S. Administration for Community living states that older Americans lose an estimated $2.6 billion annually due to Â“nancial abuse and material exploitation. Other forms of include emotional or psychological abuse, neglect and self-neglect, and physical and sexual abuse. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was established in 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations. The goal of WEAAD is to promote a better understanding of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older persons. AAASWFL provides informational seminars on elder abuse recognition, prevention, and reporting. To schedule a presentation for your group, call the AAASWFL Helpline at 866-413-5337 (866-41-ELDER).

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 29 FEELING FIT 5 When you think of dementia, most people automatically think of AlzheimerÂs disease, too. But, under a new definition of AlzheimerÂs, the two terms no longer will be considered interchangeable. The new definition is part of a new framework for researching AlzheimerÂs disease that the AlzheimerÂs Association and the National Institute on Aging developed and released. ÂAlzheimerÂs disease is one cause of dementia,ÂŽ Dr. Clifford Jack Jr., a Mayo Clinic radiologist and AlzheimerÂs researcher, says. ÂItÂs the most common cause, but itÂs certainly not the only cause. And that has been a source of major confusion.ÂŽ Jack helped lead a team of scientists with the AlzheimerÂs Association and the National Institute on Aging releasing the new AlzheimerÂs research framework. Currently, AlzheimerÂs is diagnosed by evaluating symptoms and cognitive behavior associated with the disease. But, Jack says, that can be misleading for research. So, in the new research framework, AlzheimerÂs disease is not diagnosed based on symptoms. Instead, it is diagnosed by its neuropathology, referred to as plaques and tangles. This can be done at autopsy or using biomarkers when a person is still living. That means through cerebral spinal fluid or through brain imaging. Jack says the change is significant. ÂWhat weÂre saying is that symptoms are a consequence of the disease,ÂŽ he says. ÂTheyÂre not the definition of the disease. People can have the pathology in the brain and be symptom-free. They still have the disease even though they have no symptoms. If they have the pathology, they have the diseases. ItÂs controversial in some circles because, historically, the presence of symptoms was the definition. Now weÂre saying (thatÂs) no longer so.ÂŽ Jack says changing the definition allows research to better target patients so clinical trials will be more effective. He also says this change is significant because it can allow researchers to diagnose AlzheimerÂs disease before a patient has symptoms. This will allow scientists to develop treatments that stop AlzheimerÂs before symptoms develop, improving the quality of life for patients. Jack says a good way to think of the shift is comparing it to how health care providers treat heart disease. ÂThe best way to treat cardiovascular disease is by giving an asymptomatic person statins, you know, for 20, 30 years, as opposed to waiting until that person has a stroke or heart attack, and then trying to treat (that),ÂŽ he says. Jack says he and the other scientists releasing the new framework hope it will create a common language for researchers to use in the short term. ÂThe long term is that these biomarkers Â„ classifying people in this way, defining AlzheimerÂs disease in this way, using biomarkers to determine who actually gets into clinical trials Â„ that will lead to more rapid development and identification of treatments,ÂŽ he says. ÂAnd, so, the long term is that this biomarkerbased definition will lead more rapidly to effective treatments.ÂŽNew definition of AlzheimerÂs changes how disease is researchedFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORKIMAGE PROVIDED Nearly two-thirds of caregivers whose loved ones suffer from the debilitating effects of AlzheimerÂs or related dementia say they would take medication to delay the onset of their own memory loss by even six months, if it were affordable and free of side effects. Sixtyfour percent say theyÂve already made healthy lifestyle modifications in an effort to prevent their own memory loss, making meaningful edits to their diet and exercise. However, only one-third of caregivers say they have been tested for the AlzheimerÂs gene. These, and other, findings were revealed in a new report from Healthline Media, the fastest growing health information brand, reaching 39 million monthly users in the United States. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/ home/20180530005860/ en/ The report, ÂState of Caregiving for AlzheimerÂs Disease and Related Dementia 2018,ÂŽ examines the current caregiving population, the challenges they face in caring for a loved one with the disease today and how advances in science and technology may affect caregiving roles in the future. The report included a survey of nearly 400 active caregivers across generations and in-depth interviews with medical experts and advocacy groups. The full report can be accessed at www. healthline.com/health/ state-of-alzheimers. ÂAlzheimerÂs disease is on the rise, and the landscape is evolving Â„ the types of clinical trials, treatments, resources/support, and the accelerated need for more family caregivers to take on the intensive responsibility of care for loved ones,ÂŽ said Diane Ty, Project Director of the Global Social Enterprise Initiative and AgingWell Hub at Georgetown UniversityÂs McDonough School of Business. ÂHealthlineÂs report helps prepare the modern patient and caregiver for the new state of AlzheimerÂs disease and other dementias.ÂŽ According to HealthlineÂs report, the intimate view of a loved one aging with AlzheimerÂs or related dementia is prompting more caregivers (34 percent) to be genetically tested for the disease, something millennials (49 percent) are more proactive about than older generations (Gen Xers 36 percent, Boomers 17 percent.) Most caregivers report that a specific incident prompted a medical evaluation for their loved one (70 percent.) In almost half of all cases the incident was the last in a series, though more than one quarter of the cases were the first of its kind. Interestingly, millennial caregivers were more likely to report a firsttime incident led to a medical evaluation (41 percent) compared to other caregiver groups (Boomers 21 percent; Gen Xers 18 percent.) KEY FINDINGS: Â€ Patient 67 percent take up to one year to receive a specific diagnosis 41 percent had MCI (mild cognitive impairment) before an AlzheimerÂs or related dementia diagnosis 75 percent of AlzheimerÂs or related dementia patients remain home or in a private residence despite the diseaseÂs progression Â€ Caregiver 71 percent of caregivers are female 72 percent of caregivers say their health has worsened since becoming caregivers 1 of 2 caregivers have had their career and/ or finances impacted due to caregiving responsibilities Â€ Caregiver Resources 42 percent of caregivers use in-person support groups, online communities/forums 55 percent of caregivers say they are not getting adequate emotional support. ÂWe know our readers Â„ both patients and their caregivers Â„ have individual health journeys and we always strive to understand their specific paths, and how our content can best support them,ÂŽ said Tracy Stickler, Editor in Chief, Healthline. ÂThe latest ÂState OfÂ report helps deepen our understanding of the evolving needs of the caregiver so we can create content and programs to better support them in making critical decisions.ÂŽ HealthlineÂs ÂState Of.ÂŽ series examines consumer lifestyle data gathered by the websiteÂs research team. ÂState of.ÂŽ research results are paired with editorial content illustrating topics from the consumerÂs perspective, highlighting credible, expert-informed insights to inform health decisions. The ÂState OfÂŽ series kicked off in July 2017 with the ÂState of Fertility,ÂŽ followed by the ÂState of CareÂŽ and ÂState of Cancer.ÂŽ ÂState of Caregiving for AlzheimerÂs Disease and Related Dementia 2018ÂŽ adds to the growing body of research in key disease states affecting HealthlineÂs readers Â„ the modern healthcare consumer and their caregivers. Additional studies in this series will continue in 2018, examining other key disease states affecting HealthlineÂs readers. About AlzheimerÂs Disease and Related Dementia According to the AlzheimerÂs Association, AlzheimerÂs disease is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Dementia is not a specific disease. ItÂs an overall term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a personÂs ability to perform everyday activities. AlzheimerÂs accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. There are currently 5.7 million Americans living with AlzheimerÂs, with 47 million people with the disease worldwide. One in every 10 Americans aged 65 or older is living with AlzheimerÂs, with twothirds being women. AlzheimerÂs is the costliest disease in the United States, in raw expense of more than $270 billion annually, but also in the incalculable toll it takes on patient and caregiver alike. About HealthlineÂs The State of Caregiving for AlzheimerÂs or Related Dementia 2018 Healthline conducted a survey of nearly 400 active caregivers representing millennials, Gen X, and Boomers, and interviewed a dynamic group of medical and care experts to best understand the constraints, needs, and unspoken truths of living with and caring for an AlzheimerÂs patient. The objective of the survey was to understand the role and responsibilities of unpaid AlzheimerÂs or related dementia caregivers, identify the resources and tools used by these caregivers and gauge the impact caregiving has on the health, career, and Â“nances of caregivers. Respondents were screened to conÂ“rm US residency, age 18 and up and unpaid caregiving for someone diagnosed with AlzheimerÂs or related dementia. The survey was Â“elded between Feb.16, 2018 to Feb. 23, AlzheimerÂs caregivers determined to lower their own risk of cognitive decline, may not be doing enoughBUSINESS WIRE a d no= 54535621 DIABETIC & WOUND CARE CERTIFIED BOARD Dr. Tom Lane DPM, FAPWCA Guardian Angel Foot Care2400 S.

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 31 CLASSIFIEDS 1 BENTONVILLE, Ark. Â„ Walmart is offering its employees a chance for a college degree without taking on student debt. The largest U.S. employer has partnered with education beneÂ“ts company Guild Education to coach employees through a college degree, starting with the application process through graduation while giving attention to work and school balance issues. Three nonproÂ“t and accredited universities Â„ the University of Florida, Brandman University in California and Bellevue University in Nebraska Â„ have agreed to be part of the program. The universities have collaborated with Walmart to offer online classes for associateÂs and bachelorÂs degrees in business and supply chain management. Those colleges were selected because of their track record for graduating working adults, said Rachel Carlson, CEO and co-founder of Guild. All three schools already cater to working adults who need classes to be available on the weekends and in the evenings. In a conference call with reporters, Carlson said 300 non-proÂ“t schools were considered. The University of Florida is a top tier university. Bellevue already works with the military services and would be familiar to veterans. Brandman has been successful with Hispanic students. ÂWalmart has kicked off what might be the nationÂs most scalable approach to creating educational opportunity for AmericaÂs workforce,ÂŽ Carlson said. The retailer made the announcement Wednesday to employees and shareholders. Walmart made some changes to its annual meeting this year, moving the formal business meeting to Wednesday. The companyÂs traditional Friday celebrity-Â“lled event for shareholders and employees from around the world to Â“ll the Bud Walton Arena University of Arkansas is still on.Walmart gets creativeThe new beneÂ“t, which is the Â“rst tuition program offered by Walmart, could have a big impact in Texas and give the retailer a competitive advantage in hiring. Walmart is the largest employer in the state with 168,403 working at its stores, distribution centers and other facilities. Walmart will pay all costsÂ„ tuition, fees and books Â„ not covered by Â“nancial aid. Employees pay $1 a day, or $365 a year, for the Â“ve years expected for a working employee to complete a bachelorÂs degree. While itÂs a fraction of the college cost, itÂs a meaningful amount for hourly workers. Full-time, part-time and salaried employees at WalmartÂs U.S. stores, supply chain, home ofÂ“ce and SamÂs Club can apply for the beneÂ“ts. To qualify, an employee has to have been on staff at least 90 days. There are no requirements to stay with the company after graduation, Murphy said. Walmart estimated that more than 60,000 people from its 1.4 million U.S. workforce will want take it up on its offer based on participation rates at other companies with tuition programs, including Starbucks, said Julie Murphy, executive vice president of people at Walmart U.S. Many companies did away with their tuition reimbursement programs during the Great Recession. Companies that offer some kind of tuition help include Dallas-based AT&T and major retailers Amazon and Home Depot. ÂThe support that employees will receive from Guild coaches is like having a personal trainer for your education,ÂŽ Murphy said. Walmart is requiring its employees to participate fully and pass their classes. No grade requirements are attached to the funding. Murphy said she canÂt estimate the cost of the program because each personÂs situation will be unique. ÂInvesting in the personal and professional success of our associates is vital to WalmartÂs future success. We know training and learning opportunities empower associates to deliver for customers while growing and advancing in their careers,ÂŽ said Greg Foran, CEO of Walmart U.S. In January, Walmart raised starting wages from $9 to $11 an hour and gave employees bonuses ranging from $200 to $1,000. This year, Walmart also expanded paid maternity to 10 weeks for full-time hourly employees and six weeks of paid parental leave.

Page 32 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 CLASSIFIEDS 2 SEATTLE Â„ Matthew SkellyÂs dreams are in the clouds. SpeciÂ“cally, in an Alaska Airlines plane, Â”ying through the clouds. The 21-year-old Seattleite has a goal to become a Â”ight attendant for the local airline company Â„ but this spring, his training is taking place Â“rmly on the ground, within a series of mirrored rooms on the University of Washington campus. Skelly strides conÂ“dently to a small whiteboard in the corner of a back ofÂ“ce packed with chairs, a coffee maker and a copy machine. He bends down to see his task list for the day, the red highlighter in his hand poised to check off the Â“rst job. First on the list: Wipe down the tables and chairs in every room of the University of Washington Speech & Hearing Clinic. Skelly, dressed smartly in black slacks and a black polo shirt, knows exactly where to Â“nd the tube of cleaning wipes and the Â”oor map of the ofÂ“ce. After dusting the rooms, the task list notes he will make copies, then do a bit of computer work if he has time. Skelly checks the list often throughout his shift, relying on it to help keep him on track. Skelly has autism and has long struggled to keep focused on the tasks presented him. That distraction was especially bad in middle school, Skelly remembers, but has signiÂ“cantly improved the past several years. ÂIÂm learning about how to be more in-depth in my job,ÂŽ Skelly says, pausing brieÂ”y from wiping down a table to check his map and see which room is next. ÂItÂs about knowing what I should be doing without someone telling me.ÂŽ Still, it helps Skelly to have a list so he can take things one step at a time. He plans to employ a similar checklist approach to working his way toward Alaska Air. He already knows a few of the requirements: must be able to swim, must be at least 21, must be able to work on a team. Skelly is part of Project Search at UW, a program operated in part by the university and Seattle Public Schools that helps young people with autism gain skills vital to workplaces Â„ and, by the end of the school year, to Â“nd jobs. The goal is that, over a course of at least three internships in a year, Skelly and his classmates will learn how to work in an ofÂ“ce, or perhaps a restaurant, or maybe in a library Â„ and they will know how to take public transit to get to their jobs and how to interact with co-workers and supervisors. The UW program is one of several Project Search programs across the United States, and is one of a small handful to focus solely on young people with autism. Its challenges are signiÂ“cant: Research shows only about half the people with autism have held a job at some point during high school and their early 20s Â„ the lowest rate when compared to other groups with disabilities, according to a study published in the National Institutes of Health Public Access. But researchers at UW, backed by teachers from high schools and job-placement experts, are hopeful they can craft speciÂ“c classroom lessons and pair students with specialized job experiences to give young people a jump-start into jobs. Part of the challenge is the breadth of the autism spectrum, and in the number of ways the condition can manifest. Autism can mean many things, but generally appears in two ways: difÂ“culties related to social communication, and the concept of repetitive behaviors, says Gary Stobbe, a neurologist at UW Medicine who has helped craft the Project Search program. That means people with autism might have trouble maintaining eye contact and keeping up with conversations, especially if the chatter is ambiguous, and might focus intently on a certain topic when talking to people, showing little interest for other topics. Some people with autism also have intellectual disabilities. But not everyone with autism has any or all of these characteristics, and severity varies widely. So the program organizers curate the internships as much as possible, aiming to give all students jobs in which they can gain skills within their reach. Holding a job has been shown to reduce depression and create better mental health generally, Stobbe says. Many people argue that getting people into jobs beneÂ“ts society as a whole. Otherwise, some people with autism would be more dependent on their families and social services during the days. Many companies, such as Microsoft, are starting to think of people with autism as an untapped talent pool Â„ people who are skilled, but also might bring perspectives to companies that are currently lacking. Maggie Meister is mapping out a schedule for the next two weeks on a huge whiteboard in UWÂs Allen Library. ÂWhat do you all need to bring for the pool on Friday?ÂŽ she asked the Project Search students. The end of the quarter was nearing in March, and the students were about to Â“nish their second internship of the year. ÂA suit, and a towel if we want to swim,ÂŽ Skelly answered. ÂAnd?ÂŽ Meister prompted. ÂThree dollars.ÂŽ ÂAnd which jobs are you going to apply to before next week?ÂŽ The answers came out slowly, as prompted: Pemco. Target. Starbucks. Alaska Air. Meister, a Seattle Public Schools teacher, works with students with disabilities who are in the three Âtransition yearsÂŽ that can be taken from the age of 18 to 21. Students stay enrolled in high school and participate in programs formed to help them Â“nd work after school. Along with job coach Cassondra Yi from Provail, a Seattle company that works with people with disabilities, Meister helps students do mock job interviews and videotapes them to review. One student was having trouble understanding the question, ÂHow long have you been working at this worksite?ÂŽ The obvious answer, it seemed to him, was ÂÂ“ve hours,ÂŽ the length of time he had been at his internship that day. People with autism often understand the most literal interpretation of language. So Meister explained that although that is what she asked, what she meant was: How many months have you been working at this particular job? ThatÂs reasonable for Meister and Yi to do while the students are practicing at UW. But out in the wild of the job market, itÂs tough to count on hiring managers understanding the intricacies of autism Â„ even if they know the interviewee has it Â„ and knowing how to best communicate. ThatÂs why Microsoft has taken a two-sided approach to hiring people with autism. The Redmond tech giant not only brings candidates with autism into the ofÂ“ce for at least a week to walk them through a specialized interview process; it also trains hiring managers and future co-workers on how to best interact with their new colleagues. Anyone with autism can apply for MicrosoftÂs hiring academy, and the company often gets recent college grads applying from all over the country. Russ King, an engineering manager at Microsoft, fully embraced that challenge. King dumps a thick book Â„ 542 pages, to be exact Â„ on the table of a conference room in MicrosoftÂs sprawling headquarters. ÂHave you read this?ÂŽ he asks the room, pointing to ÂNeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity,ÂŽ a book by Steve Silberman that traces the history of autism. King has. He devoured it, and several other books and articles about autism, after Â“rst taking the company-offered training about a year and a half ago. King stumbled upon MicrosoftÂs hiring program in the way you might expect a hiring manager to: He needed more engineers. King, a British native who started working for Microsoft in the U.K. nearly 26 years ago, has made a couple of hires from the program, which began at Microsoft four years ago. And once the hires from the autism program are in, there are no accommodations as far as what King expects from the quality of work. ÂWe donÂt lower the bar; we havenÂt changed the rules,ÂŽ he says. ÂItÂs just a different-shaped door.ÂŽ It started with resumes. Jenny Lay-Flurrie, MicrosoftÂs chief accessibility ofÂ“cer, knows software jobs appeal to some people with autism Â„ coding is logicand rule-based, and it requires a lot of attention to detail. But she had heard about people struggling to Â“nd jobs, and she looked into why. It was the resumes. A resume would list maybe one internship, a few months at a grocery store, a huge gap in time and then, at the bottom ... a double major in computer science and data science. Lay-Flurrie and her team at Microsoft reasoned the candidates must be getting hung up somewhere in the interview process, because it seemed pretty clear that the technical skills were there. Interviewing can be intimidating, and the consequences of misunderstanding someone or getting off on the wrong foot can mean not getting a job. ÂWhat weÂve learned is, youÂve kind of got to ditch the interview,ÂŽ Lay-Flurrie says. ÂAnd go with an academy.ÂŽ MicrosoftÂs weeklong program is held each quarter and has so far resulted in hiring 50 people with autism. The week includes classes and tips on how to communicate in teams, tests of technical prowess and group games Â„ the most well-known: building a bridge with sticks and marshmallows. Kendall Foster came to MeisterÂs class at UW beaming. The cheerful 21-year-old has good news, delivered to her via a phone call just 16 hours ago. She got a job. It was no small feat. Foster, who has autism and dyslexia, interviewed for six jobs since December, with no luck. ÂGene Juarez, QFC, Microsoft, a coffee shop, Seattle Center and Nordstrom Rack,ÂŽ she lists. But the winner is Inglewood Golf Club, where Foster will work in the newly renovated restaurant, helping set tables and making sure everything stays in order. SheÂll have a job coach with her, at least at the beginning, and already has Â“gured out how to take the Access bus from her home in North Seattle to the Kenmore club. ÂI canÂt wait to tell my sister,ÂŽ Foster says, grinning. Only the fact that her sister is studying abroad, and was therefore asleep, stopped Foster from calling right when she got the news. FosterÂs goals are pretty typical of a young 20-something. SheÂd like to earn money, get some experience for her resume and maybe one day live independently. She lives with her parents now, and has a home aide, called a Âbehavior technician,ÂŽ visit a few times a week. They go over Â”ashcards with common social phrases, a bit of math and life skills such as buttoning jean jackets That might make rolling silverware in napkins difÂ“cult, she tells Provail job coach Yi, who helped Foster leverage her internships at UW into her job offer and will accompany Foster as she starts at Inglewood. When Foster started in Project Search, she didnÂt know how to use a copy machine, a skill she mastered while interning in the Speech & Hearing clinic.

Another day, another data set for new college grads who are about to enter the workforce. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers Job Outlook 2018 survey, there exists a handful of signiÂ“cant skills that employers are seeking from new college grads. Unfortunately, last year only 44% of college seniors felt very prepared for their careers, according to a survey of more than 5,000 students by McGraw-Hill (as of the writing of this article, the 2018 report has not yet been published). Now, this isnÂt necessarily a negative for you job-seeking college grads out there; itÂs an opportunity to hone your skill set and show that you actually do have what it takes. Below youÂll Â“nd the skills hiring managers say need to be part of the college grad repertoire. So if youÂre on the hunt for an entry-level job, read on to learn what these skills are and how to master them.Ability to work in a teamUnlike your career as a student, where youÂre really the only one who can make or break your success, the workplace depends on teams of people to get the job done. No surprise that 82.9 percent of hiring managers want to know you can work well with lots of different personalities. YouÂll need to learn how to delegate, take direction, value differences of opinion, and play to your and your co-workersÂ strengths and weaknesses. It goes without saying that nobody likes the employee who wants to hog the spotlight. Be sure to point out your co-workersÂ contributions to projects.Critical thinking/ problem-solvingThis year, there was a tie for Â“rst place, as 82.9% of managers want to see new college graduates tout excellent problem-solving skills. Many hiring managers use behavioral interview questionsÂ„phrases such as Âtell me about a time whenÂŽ or Âgive me an example ofÂŽÂ„to assess a job candidateÂs critical-thinking ability. Thus, youÂll want to prepare anecdotes that paint you as a problem solver. Granted, ÂitÂs tough giving employers examples when you donÂt have work experience yet,ÂŽ says Los Angeles-based career coach Nancy Karas. So you may not have a ton of work experience, but that doesnÂt mean you have no experience whatsoever. After all, you must have experienced something in college. Guess what: That still counts. ÂThink about times where you were proactive, innovative, or highly responsive to a challenge,ÂŽ like that time you helped solve a customer complaint while working at the campus coffee shop, Karas says. Even better: Show that you took the initiative to identify a problem and then solved it.Writing proficiencyThe survey found that 80.3% of managers feel writing proÂ“ciency is the most desirable hard skill among recent college graduates. Submitting a well-crafted cover letter is crucial, but there are some other unconventional ways to highlight your writing chops. If you volunteered to be the scribe for a group project in college, for example, include that on your resume, advises Dawn Bugni, a professional resume writer in Atkinson, North Carolina. Depending on the nature of the industryÂ„marketing, communications or journalism to name a fewÂ„you might also bring writing samples with you to job interviews.LeadershipItÂs a tall order: 72.6% of hiring managers want potential hires with great leadership skills. Believe it or not, there are ways you can show possible employers that you have leadership potential before you even enter the workforce. If you held a leadership role in college (e.g., president of the French club), highlight it on your resume. If you emerged as the informal leader on a group project, talk about the experience during the job interview. Also, get letters of recommendation former internship managers that speak to your leadership skills.Strong work ethicYou need to be committed to your job responsibilities and understand that doing your job is more than just means to a paycheckÂ„ after all, a company stands for something beyond business and so should you. ThatÂs why 68.4% of hiring managers want to see new hires demonstrate a strong work ethic. Show up on time, be engaged in your work, and act with integrity.Get hired fasterNow that you know which attributes to highlight in order to turn heads, youÂll want to feature them prominently on your resume and cover letter. Once youÂre ready, itÂs time to get in front of as many hiring managers as possible. Need help with that? Join Monster today.

The News Wire Sunday, June 3, 2018 STATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHER Remains of 8 veterans, long unclaimed, buried in San AntonioSee page2. WASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un say they have the same goal Â„ denuclearization of the Korean peninsula Â„ at their upcoming summit in Singapore. But they disagree fundamentally about what that would look like. The dispute over the shape, scope and speed of a potential disarmament has stymied international efforts to stop or roll back North KoreaÂs nuclear weapons program for three decades. It arguably poses the biggest obstacle to a successful summit now that it is back on track for June 12. Reconciling or Â“nessing that gap Â„ and determining what the secretive police state would get in return for handing over or dismantling its nuclear arsenal Â„ could make the difference between a deal or no deal after the haggling starts. ÂThe common mistake is to assume when the North Koreans talk about denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, theyÂre talking about giving up all their weapons,ÂŽ said Victor Cha, who headed Asian affairs in the National Security Council under President George W. Bush and who participated took in nuclear talks with North Korea at the time. ÂItÂs not really the way we look at it, which is ÂCrate it up and take it out,ÂÂŽ said Cha, who now heads the Korea program at the nonpartisan Center for Strategic and International Studies. Rather, he said, North Koreans view denuclearization as a long-term aspiration, the way Americans talk of someday abolishing nuclear weapons worldwide. North Korea has a long list of other grievances, and could demand the removal of U.S. troops, or even the U.S. nuclear umbrella, from South Korea. ÂItÂs an endless list,ÂŽ said Michael Green, another veteran of Bush administration negotiations with North Korea. ÂThey will keep adding to the list of things we have to do in order for them to denuclearize until the cows come home.ÂŽ Most experts say DAMASCUS, Syria Â„ SyriaÂs foreign minister said Saturday Iranian military advisers are embedded with Syrian troops but Tehran has no combat forces or Â“xed bases in the country. Walid al-MoallemÂs comments came amid rising tension in the region as Israel has repeatedly warned against any permanent Iranian military presence in Syria. Al-Moallem said Israel is making false claims to try to pressure Iran, its archrival. In May, Israel carried out a wave of airstrikes in response to what it said was an Iranian rocket attack on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights. It was the most serious confrontation between Israel and Iran to date. Scores of Iranian soldiers have been killed in battles with insurgents in Syria, including a number of ofÂ“cers. Several others were also killed in the past few months in airstrikes said to be carried out by Israel. Iran has repeatedly said in the past that it only has advisers in Syria but thousands of Iranbacked groups from Lebanon, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan have played instrumental role in helping government forces regain control of areas held by insurgents. Those areas include eastern neighborhoods of the northern city of Aleppo, the eastern province of Deir el-Zour and parts of Idlib and Hama provinces to the west. On April 9, an airstrike struck the T4 air base in central Syria reportedly targeting a unit of IranÂs powerful Revolutionary Guard Corps and killing several Iranians, including a colonel who was a commander of the guardsÂ Aerospace Force. Russia blamed Israel for the attack. ÂThere are Iranian advisers in Syria some of whom were martyred while working with the Syrian Arab army and their presence is part of an agreement and in coordination with the armed forces on where they should be,ÂŽ al-Moallem said. ÂThere are no Â“xed military bases for the Islamic Republic of Iran and what Israel is circulating are lies.ÂŽ ÂWhen the conspiracy against Syria began in 2011 our brothers in the Islamic Republic of Iran came to help Syria Trump and Kim want ÂdenuclearizationÂ but disagree on what that meansSyria FM: Iran has no combat forces, bases in the countryBy NOAH BIERMAN and MATT STILESLOS ANGELES TIMESBy ALBERT AJI and BASSEM MROUETHE ASSOCIATED PRESS SYRIA | 4 DENUCLEARIZATION | 4TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Â„ A government agency reports that most Florida nursing homes and assisted-living facilities do not have backup power despite new requirements enacted after a dozen people died in a sweltering center following Hurricane Irma. The state Agency for Health Care Administration says only 48 nursing homes and 91 assisted-living facilities have installed equipment and had state inspections as of May 25. The new rules that went into effect Friday require all facilities to have backup power for cooling for at least 96 hours. The agency reports that 348 nursing homes and 343 assisted-living facilities have requested extensions to install equipment and have it inspected. They have until Jan. 1, 2019, to meet the requirements, meaning many will not have backup power for this hurricane season. Gov. Rick Scott Â“rst directed the state to issue emergency rules requiring generators in long-term care facilities in the weeks after the tragedy last fall at the Rehabilitation Center Agency: Most Florida nursing homes are without backup powerTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald TrumpÂs lawyers composed a secret 20-page letter to special counsel Robert Mueller to assert that he cannot be forced to testify while arguing that he could not have committed obstruction because he has absolute authority over all federal investigations. The existence of the letter, which was Â“rst reported and posted by The New York Times on Saturday, was a bold assertion of presidential power and another front on which TrumpÂs lawyers have argued that the president canÂt be subpoenaed in the special counselÂs ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The letter is dated January 29 and addressed to Mueller from John Dowd, one of TrumpÂs lawyers at the time who has since resigned from the legal team. In the letter, the TrumpÂs lawyers argue that a charge of illegal obstruction is moot because the Constitution empowers the president to, Âif he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon.ÂŽ Trump weighed in on Saturday on Twitter, asking ÂIs the Special Counsel/Justice Department leaking my lawyers letters to the Fake News Media?ÂŽ He added: ÂWhen will this very expensive Witch Hunt Hoax ever end? So bad for our Country.ÂŽ Mueller has requested an interview with the president to determine whether he had criminal intent to obstruct the investigation into his associatesÂ possible links to RussiaÂs election interference. Trump had previously signaled that he would be willing to sit for an interview, but his legal team, including head lawyer Rudy Giuliani, have privately and publicly expressed concern that the president could risk charges of perjury. If Trump does not consent to an interview, Mueller will have to decide whether to forge forward with a historic grand jury subpoena. His team raised the possibility in March of subpoenaing the president but it is not clear if it is still under active consideration.

Baylor St. LukeÂs Medical Center said Friday that the transplant program will be inactive for 14 days as administrators assess whatÂs gone awry. The decision follows a series of joint reports by the Houston Chronicle and ProPublica revealing an unusually high number of patient deaths in recent years. The programÂs inactive status means it will turn away all donor hearts during the suspension. ÂAlthough extensive reviews are conducted on each unsuccessful transplant, the recent patient outcomes deserve an in-depth review before we move forward with the program,ÂŽ Doug Lawson, CEO of Catholic Health Initiatives Texas Division, which owns St. LukeÂs, said in a statement. ÂOur prayers are with the families, as well as all those on the waiting list.ÂŽ The decision punctuates a dramatic fall for one of the nationÂs most respected heart transplant programs. It was at St. LukeÂs that famed surgeon Denton Cooley performed some of the worldÂs Â“rst heart transplants back in the 1960s. But staffers have recently raised concerns to hospital leaders about the programÂs direction under Dr. Jeffrey Morgan, its surgical director since 2016, according to the Chronicle and ProPublica. Morgan did not respond to requests for comment. Some St. LukeÂs cardiologists grew so troubled by the programÂs direction in 2016 that they referred some patients to other hospitals for transplants. OfÂ“cials at St. LukeÂs and its afÂ“liated Baylor College of Medicine have defended the program for weeks, saying they made improvements after a string of patient deaths in 2015. OfÂ“cials said the programÂs one-year survival rate after heart transplants had reached 94 percent in 2016 and 2017. But of nine patients who received heart transplants at St. LukeÂs since the start of 2018, at least three have died, according to interviews with patientsÂ family members, information provided by the hospital and data from the United Network for Organ Sharing. James ÂLeeÂŽ Lewis, a 52-year-old pipeÂ“tter from Bay City, Texas, received a transplant on Jan. 2. Operating room equipment malfunctioned during surgery, and the donor heart failed. He died nearly three months later after undergoing more than a dozen operations and suffering numerous complications. His wife, Jennifer, chronicled her husbandÂs transplant and drawn-out death on Facebook. ÂIÂm glad they are doing something,ÂŽ she said Friday. ÂThat was my hope in speaking out and telling LeeÂs story.ÂŽRenowned Texas heart transplant program suspends operationsTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS JON SHAPELY/HOUSTON CHRONICLE VIA APThis Friday photo shows Baylor St. LukeÂs Medical Center in Houston.

SANFORD, Maine (AP) Â„ A car careened onto a Maine Â“eld during a boysÂ baseball game Friday night, striking and killing a man and sending screaming ballplayers and bystanders Â”eeing, police said. Sanford police said the car drove through an open gate at Goodall Park onto a ballÂ“eld, hitting Douglas Parkhurst, 68, of West NewÂ“eld, before attempting to speed away. Parkhurst died on the way to the hospital. None of the players were injured. Police arrested Carol Sharrow, 51, of Sanford, and charged her with manslaughter. She was taken to York County Jail in Alfred, where she remained on Saturday. Efforts to contact an attorney for Sharrow were unsuccessful. Sanford police Detective Sgt. Matthew Jones said Sharrow has a drunken driving conviction in Maine and an aggravated drunk driving conviction in New Hampshire, the Portland Press Herald reported. Authorities declined to say whether alcohol was involved on Friday. Witnesses said that before Sharrow entered the park she tried to drive onto the basketball court across the street but couldnÂt get past big boulders lining the court. They said Parkhurst was trying to close a gate when he was hit. ÂWe want to share our heartfelt gratitude that physically all of our players from Babe Ruth and Little League are safe,ÂŽ the Sanford Maine Little League said in a Facebook post. The leagueÂs leaders called for the community to support the young players and on Saturday about 100 people turned out for a morning game, where the Salvation Army distributed free water and coffee.Car careens onto field during baseball game

ÂThe free ride is over,ÂŽ League leader Matteo Salvini, ItalyÂs new interior minister, warned migrants at a rally in northern Italy. ÂItÂs time to pack your bags.ÂŽ The pledge of mass deportations to come was a reminder that Italy has a staunchly anti-immigrant, right-wing party in its governing coalition Â„ and that the European Union will face a whole new partner governing its fourth-largest economy. Earlier, Salvini joined Premier Giuseppe Conte and the rest of the newly sworn-in Cabinet to view the Republic Day parade. ItalyÂs aeronautic acrobatic squad Â”ew low and loud over downtown Rome trailing smoke in the red, white and green of the Italian Â”ag. The national pride on display is a feature of every Republic Day, but it took on a particular signiÂ“cance this year after Italy on Friday ended three months of political and Â“nancial turmoil and swore in a government whose populist and euroskeptic leanings have alarmed Europe. Conte, a law professor plucked from relative obscurity to head an unlikely governing alliance of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and League, said the celebrations Saturday transcended all the tensions of recent days. ÂItÂs the celebration for all of us, of our republic,ÂŽ he said. ConteÂs Cabinet was sworn in after a last-minute deal averted the threat of a new election that could have turned into a referendum on whether Italy stayed with the shared European euro currency. The political stability relieved Â“nancial markets on Friday but ItalyÂs European neighbors continued to express concerns about the euroskeptic bent and the heavy spending agenda of ItalyÂs new government. ÂItaly is destroying itself Â„ and dragging down Europe with it,ÂŽ read the headline of GermanyÂs Der Spiegel magazine, the cover of which featured a forkful of spaghetti with one dangling strand tied up as a noose. While Spiegel is known for such provocations, another Spiegel article last week drew an ofÂ“cial protest from ItalyÂs ambassador to Germany. On Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel phoned Conte and invited him to visit soon. MerkelÂs ofÂ“ce said both leaders emphasized the importance of continued close bilateral cooperation. Conte has so far left policy speciÂ“cs to the drivers of his improbable rise, his two deputies: Salvini and 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio. Di Maio, the new economic development minister, reported for work after the parade to his ministry, which would have otherwise been closed for the holiday. ÂStarting today, we get to work to create work,ÂŽ Di Maio said in a Facebook video giving Italians a tour of the empty ministry. Di Maio is also the minister for labor, a combination he said made sense since the two ministries must work together. Offering the new government cautious support was ItalyÂs small, far-right neo-fascist CasaPound party, which held its own Republic Day commemoration on Saturday. Banners featured images of a crossedout EU Â”ag and Â#exITÂŽ written underneath, a reference to calls for Italy to leave the 28-nation bloc. The 5-Star-League agenda has no such plans, but Conte made clear he was irked by comments this week by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who said Italy had to stop blaming the EU for its problems and must take responsibility to address the poverty in southern Italy. ÂThat means more work, less corruption. Seriousness,ÂŽ Juncker said in comments his spokeswoman later said he regretted. In an unscripted blast from the parade route, Conte insisted Italy wasnÂt alone in facing cases of corruption and declared that Âwe all have to work for legality.ÂŽ ConteÂs government faces mandatory conÂ“dence votes next week in parliament, where the two governing parties have a slim majority. Republic Day commemorates the day, June 2, 1946, when Italians voted in a referendum to abolish the monarchy in favor of a republic, ItalyÂs Â“rst. The political upheaval that has created western EuropeÂs Â“rst populist government this week has been dubbed the start of ItalyÂs Third Republic.New Italian govt vows to create jobs, deport migrantsBy NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESS FABIO FRUSTACI/ ANSA IA APItalian Premier Giuseppe Conte is greeted by citizens on the occasion of the celebrations for ItalyÂs Republic Day, in Rome Saturday. BERLIN (AP) Â„ The co-leader of the far-right nationalist Alternative for Germany party on Saturday dismissed the Nazi era as a Âspeck of bird poopÂŽ in German history, drawing swift condemnation from mainstream politicians and outrage on social media. Alexander Gauland said Germans must take responsibility for 12 years of rule by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party, but argued that itÂs only a small part of GermanyÂs history. ÂWe have a glorious history and it, dear friends, lasted longer than those blasted 12 years,ÂŽ he told a gathering of the partyÂs youth movement, according to the dpa news agency. ÂHitler and the Nazis are just a speck of bird poop in more than 1,000 years of successful German history,ÂŽ he said to applause. The party, known by its German acronym AfD, became the third largest in GermanyÂs parliament after the 2017 election. It is also the largest opposition party. Responding to Gauland, the secretary general of Chancellor Angela MerkelÂs Christian Democratic Party, wrote on Twitter that Â50 million victims of war, the Holocaust and total war are just bird poopÂŽ for Gauland and his party. Annegret KrampKarrenbauer said GaulandÂs comments reveal the true nature of a party hiding behind middle-class respectability. Katrin Gring-Eckardt of the Greens party called GaulandÂs comments a slap in the face to Holocaust survivors and their descendants and said they highlight the need to push back against a hate-Â“lled minority. ÂThose who say they understand the concerns of AfD voters havenÂt understood anything,ÂŽ she said. Marco Buschmann of the Free Democratic Party said politicians who systematically play down the Nazi dictatorship and the Holocaust show how bleak their vision for GermanyÂs future is. Hitler and his party ruled Germany from 1933-1945, in later years engineering the genocide of Jews in Europe. Millions of people were persecuted or perished under Nazi rule, including six million Jews who lost their lives in the Holocaust.AfD chief: Nazi era a Âspeck of bird poopÂ in German history CataloniaÂs new regional government was sworn in Saturday, ending months of direct rule by the Spanish government that was imposed after an illegal referendum last year. Catalonian President Quim Torra swore in his 13 ministers at the regional governmentÂs palace in Barcelona. During the ceremony, Torra also commemorated the politicians from the regionÂs previous government who were in jail or have Â”ed abroad to avoid potential prison sentences over accusations including rebellion and misappropriation of public funds by the Spanish government. There were major hurdles to forming the Catalan government, with several candidates for president or minister positions rejected because they could not appear in Parliament because of their legal problems. In Madrid, the Spanish government also held a swearing-in ceremony Saturday, with socialist leader Pedro Sanchez becoming prime minister. It remains to be seen whether the new Spanish government will behave differently toward the Catalan regional government.Inauguration of Catalonian government ends SpainÂs direct rulePROVIDED BY DPA (TNS)Cuba forms commission to update Soviet-era constitution US citizen killed in Nicaragua amid unrest Conservatives protest in Macedonia, demand early election Danes seek to limit male circumcision to those 18 and over Cuban officials raise death toll from Alberto to 7HAVANA (AP) Â„ Cuban legislators took the Â“rst step Saturday to drafting a new constitution. Current President Miguel Diaz-Canel convened a special session of CubaÂs parliament to propose a list of people to undertake a rewrite of the Soviet-era document. Delegates gave their approval for a commission presided over by former President Raul Castro and comprised of some 30 others, including Diaz-Canel. There is no pending draft, but ofÂ“cials have made clear that the constitution will maintain a Communist Party-led system in which freedom of speech, the press and other rights are limited by Âthe purposes of socialist society.ÂŽ One change expected to be adapted would limit presidents to two Â“ve-year terms and impose an age limit Â„ a dramatic shift following a nearly 60-year run of leadership by Castro and his late brother Fidel, who both ruled into their 80s. Another possible change could regulate private property in a limited way. The rewrite comes as the countryÂs communist leaders seek to adapt to an era in which hundreds of thousands of Cubans work for themselves, remittances help keep the economy aÂ”oat and the daughter of Communist Party chief Castro is campaigning for gay rights.

The VMRO-DPMNE party, which ruled from 2006 to 2017, was holding a large anti-government demonstration Saturday against the left-wing governmentÂs one-year rule and wants an early election held in March or April next year. Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, 43, took power in May 2017 after 11 years of conservative rule amid a deep political crisis sparked by a wiretapping scandal in 2015. The opposition claims the government is incompetent, has devastated the economy, lowered wages and pensions and allowed corruption to Â”ourish. It also claims the government has damaged national interests by negotiating with Greece over a possible new name for the country. TALLINN, Estonia (AP) Â„ A Danish group says petition seeking to set a minimum age of 18 for non-medical male circumcision in the country has gathered the required 50,000 signatures to send the proposal to Parliament for debate later this year. Lena Nyhus of the group Intact Denmark told The Associated Press on Saturday that her childrenÂs welfare organization believes Âwe need to respect a personÂs right to decide for themselvesÂŽ on a possible circumcision when they become an adult. The ritual of removing an infant boyÂs foreskin is common among Jews and Muslims for religious reasons. The American Academy of Pediatrics says the health beneÂ“ts of male circumcision outweigh the risks but not by enough to recommend universal male circumcision. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says doctors should educate infant boysÂ parents about the health beneÂ“ts of circumcision, which it says reduces the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. A recent poll commissioned by Danish TV2 broadcaster found that 83 percent of respondents supported such an age HAVANA (AP) Â„ Cuban ofÂ“cials have raised the death toll from Subtropical Storm Alberto to seven. Civil Defense authorities said Saturday that two others remained missing and had disappeared in the provinces of Villa Clara and Ciego de Avila. Authorities previously said the storm left four people dead after heavy rains drenched the island. In addition to damage caused to the agricultural sector, they said Alberto triggered some 100 mudslides in Havana and brought an estimated $1 million in losses after an oil reÂ“nery collapsed in the city of Cienfuegos.

TheyÂll be displayed for the next few weeks.ODD NEWS Creative road signs warn Maine motorists in funny waysFROM PAGE ONEPyongyang wants to be recognized as a full-Â”edged nuclear power with the weapons it has, but with global obligations, much as Communist ChinaÂs nuclear arms program ultimately was accepted after President Richard NixonÂs visit to Beijing in 1972. The broad parameters of a potential deal are wellestablished. The U.S. side wants North Korea to give up the estimated 20 to 60 nuclear weapons that it has built, and the infrastructure that created them, and presumably the ballistic missiles that can hurl them across the PaciÂ“c. In exchange, Trump can offer U.S. security guarantees for the regime in Pyongyang, better relations with Washington and its allies in Japan and South Korea and easing of international economic sanctions that have strangled North KoreaÂs ability to trade with the outside world. Trump has signaled that he wonÂt offer Â“nancial aid, though he has suggested he would ask Asian allies to do so. Whether thatÂs enough Â„ or whether North Korea is really prepared to give up a weapons program that has consumed much of the impoverished countryÂs energy and resources for decades Â„ remains to be seen. Many former U.S. negotiators with North Korea are deeply skeptical of how much its leaders will relinquish, and whether they would allow the intrusive inspections needed to ensure the program isnÂt secretly restarting Â„ as North Korea has done in the past. As part of the recent thaw, Pyongyang announced a freeze on further nuclear tests Â„ it previously conducted six Â„ and last week blew up the entrances to its underground test site at Punggye-ri. It didnÂt allow international inspectors in to determine if the damage is reversible, however, and it could always lift its freeze. One of TrumpÂs chief complaints was the Iran deal focused only on its nuclear program, not its ballistic missiles or support for terrorist groups. In the case of North Korea, the administration has not made it clear whether it will seek curbs on PyongyangÂs ballistic missiles Â„ or its chemical, biological and cyberwarfare capabilities, demands that would complicate a potential agreement. Behind the scenes, U.S. ofÂ“cials have sought to narrow their differences with Pyongyang in a rush of advance and even so-called pre-advance planning and talks in Washington, New York, Singapore and in the buffer zone that divides the two Koreas. TrumpÂs national security adviser, John Bolton, enraged North Koreans and nearly scuttled the sensitive diplomacy when he suggested that North Korea should follow the ÂLibya model.ÂŽ Libya gave up its nascent nuclear program in 2003 in hopes, largely unfulÂ“lled, of economic beneÂ“ts. Its leader, Moammar GadhaÂ“, was killed in an uprising eight years later. Most nuclear experts discount the idea of an immediate and complete denuclearization in North Korea given its big program and deep distrust of Washington. They say full disarmament probably would require at least a decade and allow the two governments to build trust over time as they see results. ÂThe summit represents a historic opportunity,ÂŽ said Siegfried Hecker, a former director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and one of the few Americans who has toured North KoreaÂs major nuclear facilities. But he said Washington Âwill have to settle for a phased process,ÂŽ not a quick disarmament. Hecker and two co-authors, Robert Carlin and Elliot Serbin, recently completed a study at Stanford University arguing that full disarmament would take 15 years. After nuclear weapons and missile tests stop, they argue, initial stages would include ending production of plutonium and highly enriched uranium, either of which can power a bomb, and stopping exports of nuclear technology or expertise to other states.DENUCLEARIZATIONFROM PAGE 1 in Â“ghting terrorism,ÂŽ al-Moallem said adding that the Syrian people are ÂgratefulÂŽ for this help from Iran. ÂAs long as there is war on terrorism, Syria as a sovereign state will cooperate with whoever it wants in Â“ghting terrorism,ÂŽ he said. Al-Moallem denied reports that an agreement was reached between regional and other powers over the situation of southwestern Syria where the countryÂs Israelioccupied Golan Heights are located. On Friday, RussiaÂs ambassador to the U.N. Vasily Nebenzia said he heard from the news that an agreement was reached on Âcertain disengagement in the southwest of Syria and, I think, my understanding is that an agreement has been reached.ÂŽ However, asked about NebenziaÂs comments al-Moallem said no agreement has been reached for southern Syria, adding that Damascus is not currently involved in any negotiations over the area. Al-Moallem said that only when U.S. troops withdraw from the Tanf area near the Jordanian border can an agreement be discussed. The U.S. has military advisers based in Tanf. ÂThe U.S. troops should withdraw from Syria and Syrian sovereignty over the Tanf area is undoubted,ÂŽ he said. Earlier this week, RussiaÂs Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Syrian troops should be positioned on the border with the Golan Heights, which have been occupied by Israel since the 1967 Mideast war. The area between the southern province of Daraa and the Golan Heights has emerged as a Â”ashpoint in a wider standoff between Israel and Iran, and the United States has warned it will take action to protect a cease-Â“re there. In Tehran, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani told the pro-reform Shargh daily that Iran has no presence in south of Syria but supports DamascusÂ efforts to regain control over the area. ÂIranian military advisers have no presence in southern area of Syria and have had no role in operations there,ÂŽ Shamkhani was quoted as saying. ÂWe strongly support RussiaÂs effort for removing terrorists from the Syria-Jordan border and restoring Syrian army control over the region.ÂŽ The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reported on Thursday that Iranian troops and members of LebanonÂs Iran-backed Hezbollah group are getting ready to withdraw from southern Syria. A Syria-based ofÂ“cial with the Iran-led axis of resistance denied the report. Al-Moallem reiterated the governmentÂs position that it aims to regain control of the whole country.SYRIAFROM PAGE 1 not have the authority to do so. A court battle is likely if TrumpÂs team argues that the president canÂt be forced to answer questions or be charged with obstruction of justice. President Bill Clinton was charged with obstruction in 1998 by the House of Representatives as part of his impeachment trial. And one of the articles of impeachment prepared against Richard Nixon in 1974 was for obstruction. Topics of MuellerÂs obstruction investigation include the Â“rings of both Comey and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, as well TrumpÂs reaction to Attorney General Jeff SessionsÂ recusal from the Russia investigation. In addition to the legal battles, TrumpÂs team and allies have waged a public relations campaign against Mueller to discredit the investigation and soften the impact of the special counselÂs potential Â“ndings. Giuliani said last week that the special counsel probe may be an Âentirely illegitimate investigationÂŽ and need to be curtailed because, in his estimation, it was based on inappropriately obtained information from an informant and former FBI director James ComeyÂs memos. In reality, the FBI began a counterintelligence investigation in July 2016 to determine if Trump campaign associates were coordinating with Russia to tip the election. The investigation was opened after the hacking of Democratic emails that intelligence ofÂ“cials later formally attributed to Russia. Giuliani has said a decision will not be made about a possible presidential interview with the special counsel until after TrumpÂs summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore.MUELLERFROM PAGE 1 at Hollywood Hills, where an investigation continues into the residentsÂ deaths after Irma knocked out power. Following months of legal disputes between the state and industry groups that pushed back on the requirements, the Florida Legislature passed rules mandating that those facilities verify they have installed a working generator or alternate backup power source by June 1, the start of hurricane season. Yet under the rules, extensions can be granted for reasons including construction or delays in delivery, zoning, or regulatory approvals, provided the facility submits alternative cooling plans that can keep residents at safe temperatures for 96 hours. Obtaining an extension means that the facilities are still in compliance with the law, despite not having the backup power fully in place or not inspected. The Agency for Health Care Administration says it will ensure all nursing homes and assisted-living facilities will meet the letter of the law. ÂIt is AHCAÂs expectation that all assisted living facilities and nursing homes are actively planning for hurricane season and complying with the new rules put in place to protect the vulnerable population they serve,ÂŽ said agency spokeswoman Mallory McManus in a statement. ÂIf a facility has not documented compliance with the June 1 deadline the agency will issue a notice of violation, which can lead to Â“nes and other penalties.ÂŽ The state is tracking when facilities report implementing their emergency power plan, when local emergency management agencies approve the plans, and when Â“re marshals or the agencyÂs ofÂ“ce does site visits. The agency plans to issue notices of violation after FridayÂs deadline if no paperwork has been submitted, McManus said.POWERFROM PAGE 1 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Â„ The president of a leading Baptist seminary in Texas was dismissed because of his response to two rape allegations made years apart by students, according to ofÂ“cials at the Fort Worth-based school. Kevin Ueckert, board chairman for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, in a statement Friday criticized the actions of former President Paige Patterson. Ueckert said Patterson sent an email to the head of campus security in 2015 to say he wanted to meet alone with a student who told him she had been raped, to Âbreak her down.ÂŽ The attitude expressed by Patterson in the email was Âantithetical to the core values of our faith,ÂŽ Ueckert said. Patterson also was criticized by the board for his response to a studentÂs allegation of rape in 2003 when Patterson was president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. That allegation was never reported to law enforcement, and Ueckert said Patterson gave contradictory information to the board when asked about it. A working phone number for Patterson could not be found Saturday to answer the allegations. Also contributing to the downfall of one of the leading Â“gures of the Southern Baptist Convention were documents requested by the North Carolina school. Southeastern Baptist had requested the return of any school records Patterson took with him when he departed to become president of Southwestern Baptist in 2003. Through an attorney, Patterson initially claimed last month not to have any such records, Ueckert said. But then the attorney later provided records clearly indicating they belonged to Southeastern Baptist, the board chairman said. Shortly after the records were turned over, the wife of PattersonÂs chief of staff posted them online as part of a blog entry, Ueckert said. The records included the names of students and other information not authorized for release by ofÂ“cials at either school, he said. ÂI believe this was inappropriate and unethical,ÂŽ Ueckert said. The Fort Worth seminary initially named the 75-year-old Patterson as president emeritus on May 23 after pushing him out of his position as president. The board at the time said that he and his wife could continue to live on campus as theologiansin-residence. But trustees later cut all ties after conÂ“rming the new allegations against him, ofÂ“cials previously said. Patterson had drawn scrutiny in recent months based on accusations that he made remarks about a teenage girlÂs body, said female seminarians should work hard to look attractive and argued that abused women should almost always stay with their husbands. The comments led to a letter from a group of Âconcerned Southern Baptist womenÂŽ dated May 6 to the board, asking trustees Âto exercise the authority you have been given by the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention and to take a strong stand against unbiblical teaching regarding womanhood, sexuality and domestic violence.ÂŽ Patterson issued an apology days later: ÂI wish to apologize to every woman who has been wounded by anything I have said that was inappropriate or that lacked clarity,ÂŽ his statement said. ÂPlease forgive the failure to be as thoughtful and careful in my extemporaneous expression as I should have been.ÂŽOfficials: Ex-Baptist leader mishandled separate rape claims PATTERSON

After some years, I entered the textile business, and later got involved in other lines of work, such as shipbuilding, heavy industry and, in 1969, electronics. I found success with televisions, video recorders, appliances and semiconductors, among other things. I developed mobile phones in the early 1990s and a smartphone in 1999. Today IÂm one of the worldÂs top brands and largest companies, with more than 300,000 employees and No. 1 market share in TVs, smartphones, memory chips, refrigerators, display drivers and more. Who am I?Think you know the answer? WeÂll announce it in next weekÂs edition. that many of them had the job when their company became part of Berkshire Â„ thereÂs little turnover. Still, about half of the new CEOs Buffett has appointed in the past several years have been women. Buffett suggested that the #metoo movement (of women coming forward about sexual harassment or abuse) will be good for the economy. He has pointed out in the past how half of the talent in America has been undertapped, and thinks that women are now more likely to have workforce opportunities. Â€ On the importance of learning: Munger opined: ÂIf youÂre going to live a long time, you have to keep learning Â„ what you formerly knew is never enough. So if you donÂt learn to constantly revise your earlier conclusions, and get better ones, you are Â„ I always use the same metaphor Â„ youÂre like a one-legged man in an a Â„ kicking contest.ÂŽ Read BuffettÂs enlightening annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com Roger LowensteinÂs book, ÂBuffett: The Making of an American CapitalistÂŽ (Random House, $20) is an excellent read, too. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.)The Motley Fool TakeA Visa to ProfitlandThe world is transitioning away from cash, with Visa (NYSE: V) likely to be a major beneficiary. The company enjoys a host of competitive advantages Â„ such as its scope. According to card payment analyst The Nilson Report, there were nearly 300 billion purchase transactions made on credit cards globally in 2017, and Visa processed more half of them. Meanwhile, the barrier to entry in the payment processing industry is exceptionally high. Not only does it take a small fortune to set up the infrastructure to process payments, but it also takes a long time for payment facilitators to build rapport with merchants and consumers. Visa expanded its geographic reach in June 2016 when it acquired Visa Europe. With much of the worldÂs transactions still conducted in cash, there are great growth opportunities in regions such as Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. In emerging markets such as India, Visa has a head start, with its CEO recently noting that Visa had more than a 50 percent share of debit and credit card spending in the worldÂs secondmost-populous nation. Finally, Visa is relatively unaffected by economic swings. Though the company does rely on purchasing to drive the processing fees it collects, itÂs not a lender, so it doesnÂt have to worry about credit delinquencies. Give it some consideration. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Visa.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentA Good Idea IsnÂt EnoughYou can add WebVan to my list of dumb investments. It was a great idea with an unbelievably stupid ad campaign. The company had no clue who their core audience should have been. Their advertising targeted 20-something males when they should have been looking at working moms. Stupid. Â„ Z.S., online The Fool Responds: You werenÂt alone in being disappointed with WebVan. The Wall Street Journal called it Âone of the most glorious flops of the dot-com-bust.ÂŽ The companyÂs concept of groceries being ordered online and delivered to customersÂ doors was exciting Â„ so much so that investors plowed more than $800 million into it, when it wasnÂt even profitable. The company had smart management, invested heavily in infrastructure (such as high-tech warehouse fulfillment centers), and started out serving 10 cities and regions. In the year before it went out of business, the company took in only $200,000 Â„ in top-line revenue, not bottom-line profit. The story reinforces the important lesson that a great idea isnÂt enough. Many great ideas never catch on Â„ sometimes because their advertising doesnÂt get the right message out to the right targets. Investing in unproven companies is riskier than favoring established enterprises. Interestingly, many WebVan executives ended up doing well. Some now work for Amazon.com, which is building out a grocery delivery business Â„ at what it hopes is the right time. Target-Date FundsQWhat are ÂlifecycleÂŽ funds, and should I invest in them? Â„ M.D., St. Augustine, FloridaATheyÂre often referred to as Âtarget-dateÂŽ funds and are meant to help you invest for retirement.People are often advised to hold mostly stocks when theyÂre young and to shift toward bonds as they age. That can be a bother, so target-date funds do it for you. Each is focused on a particular year when shareholders would be expected to retire, and its asset allocation is adjusted over time as retirement approaches. If you plan to retire around 2040, for example, you might buy into a Â2040ÂŽ fund that will gradually shed stocks and add bonds over time. Target-date funds vary widely, though. Before investing in one, consider each candidateÂs fees, holdings and performance. (Funds with the same target year can have different allocation mixes.) Keep your big picture in mind, too. You might invest $25,000 in a targetdate fund with an 80-20 stock-bond ratio, but if you hold $100,000 in bonds separately and your retirement is 25 years away, your overall asset allocation might not be what you want or need it to be.

Here are some highlights, paraphrased: Â€ On stock buybacks: When asked about AppleÂs plan to spend $100 billion buying back some of its stock, Buffett explained that it can make sense. (Doing so essentially retires those shares, reducing the companyÂs total share count and making remaining shares more valuable.) Buybacks should only happen when the shares are undervalued, though, and when the companies donÂt have more productive uses for that money, such as reinvesting in further growth. Buffett noted that via buybacks, BerkshireÂs 5 percent stake in Apple might grow to a 7 percent stake. Â€ On women in management: ItÂs true that most of the managers who lead BerkshireÂs many businesses are men, but Buffett noted 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun /Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My daughter is 17. When she was 1, she had leukemia. The treatments have left her with chronic pain as well as some disabilities that she deals with. SheÂs now a senior in high school, but looks like sheÂs 7 or 8. She yearns for what every teen girl wants Â„ a boyfriend. The problem is, no one wants to date her. ItÂs not because of her personality but because of her size and her young looks. My heart breaks seeing how depressed she is. I have told her she will meet that special person when she is supposed to, and she used to think that as well, but she doesnÂt anymore. What can I do to help my daughter through this? Â„ HEARTBROKEN DEAR HEARTBROKEN: Patience and the passage of time may bring a solution to the problem. In the meantime, if there is a name for her condition, go online and do some research to nd out if there is a support group for survivors who also have it. If there is, your daughter may nd what she needs there. Surely, others have had her experience, and perhaps they can help. One thing I know for sure Â„ you canÂt nd a date until you nd a FRIEND. DEAR ABBY: Because I was sexually abused as a child, I have diculty trusting men. My oldest sons have dierent fathers. While they were toddlers, I met the father of my youngest two sons. In the beginning, I wasnÂt in love with him, although over the years, I have grown to love him. While I am now in love with him, because of the emotional, mental and physical abuse I put him through, he doesnÂt feel the same. HeÂs a great father to all of my boys. My question is, how can I express that IÂm in love with him and want a relationship with him now? Â„ A SECOND CHANCE DEAR SECOND CHANCE: If you havenÂt already, oer the poor man a sincere apology for the way you have treated him. Then, if he is unaware of it, explain your history and oer to get counseling if he will give you the second chance you are asking for. ItÂs worth a try. That he would continue to be a Âgreat fatherÂŽ to all of your sons tells me what a prize you may have lost. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married 41 years. We live outside of Chicago, where the winters can be bad. My son and his family moved to Florida to get away from the weather here. Now my wife wants to move there, too. I have medical issues and donÂt like hot, humid weather. She says sheÂs going, and I told her IÂm staying here. Should I go with her or should she stay here with me? Â„ ÂWEATHERÂŽ TO OR NOT DEAR ÂWEATHERÂŽ: This should not be a question of either/or. Surely there is room for compromise. If your medical condition is such that you cannot tolerate the Florida climate, then you must stay where you are. If your wifeÂs reason for wanting to move south is to be closer to the grandchildren, perhaps she could arrange to visit them for three or four weeks at a time throughout the year. READER ALERT!

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 NATIONAL NEWS HOMESTEAD, Fla. Â„ Cipriano Garza says Rep. Carlos Curbelo is Âa decent man, a family man.ÂŽ He lauds the South Florida Republican for deÂ“antly pushing his party to protect young ÂDreamerÂŽ immigrants from deportation. Founder of a nonproÂ“t that helps farm workers, Garza happily hosted Curbelo at a reception honoring high school graduates last week at the massive HomesteadMiami Speedway. But his praise came with a warning about this NovemberÂs elections. ÂHe better do whatÂs right for the community,ÂŽ said Garza, 70, himself a former migrant laborer. ÂIf not, he can lose.ÂŽ Across the country Â„ from CaliforniaÂs lush Central Valley to suburban Denver to CurbeloÂs district of strip malls, farms and the laid-back Florida Keys Â„ moderate Republicans like Curbelo are under hefty pressure to buck their partyÂs hardline stance on immigration. After years of watching their conservative colleagues in safe districts refuse to budge, the GOP middle is Â“ghting back Â„ mindful that a softer position may be necessary to save their jobs and GOP control of the House. ÂMembers who have priorities and feel passionate about issues canÂt sit back and expect leadersÂŽ to address them, Curbelo said. ÂBecause it doesnÂt work.ÂŽ Curbelo, 38, is seeking a third term from a district that stretches from upscale Miami suburbs to the Everglades and down to eccentric Key West. Seventy percent of his constituents are Hispanic and nearly half are foreign-born. Those are among the highest percentages in the nation, giving many of them a Â“rsthand stake in CongressÂ immigration Â“ght. Curbelo and Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., whose Modesto-area district thrives on agriculture powered by migrant workers, have launched a petition drive that would force House votes on four immigration bills, ranging from liberal to conservative versions. Twenty-three Republicans have signed on, two shy of the number needed to succeed, assuming all Democrats jump aboard. Another supporter of the rare rebellion by the usually compliant moderates is Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., a former Marine who learned Spanish when his district was redrawn to include DenverÂs diverse eastern suburbs. In an interview, Coffman expressed frustration over waiting nearly 18 months for House Speaker Paul Ryan to deliver on assurances that Congress would address the issue. ÂHe was always telling me, ÂIt will happen, it will happen.Â I never saw it happen,ÂŽ Coffman said. The centrists favor legislation that would protect from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. They back a path to citizenship for these immigrants, who have lived in limbo since President Donald Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, called DACA. Federal courts have blocked its termination for now. Trying to head off the petition, Ryan, R-Wis., and conservatives are negotiating with the centrists in hopes of Â“nding compromise. Roll calls are on track for later this month, but it will be tough to steer legislation through the House thatÂs both liberal enough to survive in the more moderate Senate and restrictive enough for Trump to sign into law. At the speedway, a local economic anchor since Hurricane Andrew shattered the city in 1992, Curbelo didnÂt mention his battle in Washington to the graduates. ÂOur country and our community need you,ÂŽ he told his audience, some of whom Garza said were DACA recipients. CurbeloÂs district backed Democrat Hillary Clinton by a whopping 16 percentage points in the 2016 presidential race over Trump, who has fanned immigrantsÂ resentment by repeatedly linking them to crime and job losses. ThatÂs left Curbelo facing a competitive re-election, though heÂs raised far more campaign cash than his likely Democratic challenger, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. Of the 23 Republican petition signees, nine represent districts whose Hispanic populations exceed the 18 percent national average. Clinton carried 12 of their districts in 2016, and several are from moderate-leaning suburbs of cities like Philadelphia and Minneapolis and agricultural areas in California and upstate New York that rely on migrant workers. The centristsÂ petition echoes the hardball tactics often employed by the hard-right House Freedom Caucus. Its roughly 30 members often band together with demands top Republicans ignore at peril of losing votes in the narrowly divided House. GOP leaders and Freedom Caucus members fear that under the votes the petition would force, liberal-leaning legislation backed by most Democrats and a few Republicans would prevail. That would infuriate conservative voters whoÂll be needed at the polls to fend off a Democratic wave threatening GOP House control. Among those envisioning that scenario is Nicholas Mulick, GOP chairman of FloridaÂs Monroe County, which encompasses the Keys and is the reddest portion of CurbeloÂs district. ÂWith the greatest respect for the congressman, I donÂt think itÂs going to work,ÂŽ Mulick said. Others reject that argument, saying moderatesÂ worries should be heeded because they must be re-elected for Republicans to retain their majority. ÂThat sounds like somebody whoÂs never run in a swing district,ÂŽ former Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., who once led his partyÂs House campaign arm, said of claims that immigration votes would dampen conservative turnout. ÂDo they want to be in the majority, hold gavels?ÂŽ Democrats and local immigration activists say they wish CurbeloÂs effort well but question his motivation. They say heÂs reacting to election pressures and simply wants to show voters heÂs Â“ghting for them. Many at the speedway event, sponsored by GarzaÂs Mexican-American Council, were sympathetic to CurbeloÂs battle in Washington, signaling the type of support heÂll need to be re-elected. Rosa Castillo, 51, of nearby Florida City, said she knows people who donÂt get driverÂs licenses for fear of having their residency challenged. ÂHeÂs doing an awesome job for our DACA people,ÂŽ said Castillo, a Democrat who said sheÂll back Curbelo. That sentiment isnÂt universally shared. Over breakfast at a nearby Cracker Barrel restaurant, retiree and Trump backer Randy Nichols, 73, said he wonÂt support Curbelo. ÂIf theyÂre illegal, they need to leave. I hate to say that, but even for DACA kids,ÂŽ said Nichols, who lives in Marathon, one of the Keys. Mucarsel-Powell, CurbeloÂs likely Democratic challenger, said in an interview that she was glad heÂd ÂÂ“nally found some strengthÂŽ to take on fellow Republicans. The former state Senate candidate, an immigrant from Ecuador, said CurbeloÂs challenge to GOP leaders Âwill obviously bring some positive attention.ÂŽ She said she hopes Curbelo and his supporters ÂarenÂt doing it for political reasons.ÂŽPushed by voters, GOP moderates rebel on immigrationBy ALAN FRAM and NICHOLAS RICCARDIASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSIn this Tuesday photo, Rep.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency also said vigorous lava eruptions are continuing in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens. The volcano began erupting on May 3, forcing thousands of residents to evacuate and destroying dozens of homes. County ofÂ“cials said in a news release that there is no access to Kapoho and Vacationland along Highway 132 or Highway 137 because of the lava Â”ow. Video posted on Twitter showed a heap of smoldering debris blocking the roadway, as smoke billowed into the air. OfÂ“cials had issued mandatory orders for residents of Leilani Estates and those in Kapoho Beach and Vacationland to leave by Friday afternoon or risk being trapped and unreachable by emergency crews. Residents in the nearby areas should also be prepared to evacuate with little notice, ofÂ“cials said. The erupting Kilauea volcano has been spouting lava, ash and rocks for nearly a month. About two dozen recent Â“ssures in the area have created towering lava fountains and bonerattling explosions throughout the eruption.Lava cuts off access to more Hawaii neighborhoodsPolice: Phoenix killings of psychiatrist, 2 women linked BabyÂs body found floating in ocean near Boynton Beach Inlet Man trying to dance with woman stabs her boyfriend, friends FBI agentÂs gun accidentally discharges in Denver nightclubSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Â„ Authorities say the fatal shootings of two paralegals in a Phoenix suburb are related to the killing of a well-known forensic psychiatrist in Phoenix, and police are investigating if a fourth homicide is related. Scottsdale police Sgt. Ben Hoster says the killings Friday of 48-year-old Veleria Sharp and 49-year-old Laura Anderson are connected to the shooting death a day earlier of Dr. Steven Pitt. The women and Pitt were killed outside their Scottsdale ofÂ“ces. Hoster said a fatal shooting occurred Saturday morning at an ofÂ“ce also in Scottsdale appears to be connected. He didnÂt identify that victim and didnÂt immediately respond to an inquiry for further information. The 59-year-old Pitt assisted in the investigations into the 1996 death of JonBenet Ramsey in Colorado and a string of killings in Phoenix in 2006. FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Â„ An off-duty Â“reÂ“ghter was boating near the Boynton Beach Inlet early Friday afternoon when he discovered a baby girlÂs body Â”oating in the water, authorities said. The childÂs age and how long she was in the water was not yet determined, said Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce. The discovery was made by Chris Lemieux, a 10-year veteran of Boynton Beach Fire Rescue, while he was out catching bait from his conch boat, the Palm Beach Post reported. The babyÂs body will be taken to the Medical ExaminerÂs OfÂ“ce to Â“gure out cause of death and possible identiÂ“cation, Barbera said. The discovery was made about 1:20 p.m. on the ocean side of the inlet, Barbera said. Detectives were on the scene investigating. NEW YORK (AP) Â„ Police say a man trying to dance with a woman at a Manhattan bar stabbed her boyfriend and his friends. The suspect entered the bar on ManhattanÂs East Side early Saturday morning and tried to dance with a woman. Police say he put his hands on her hips when her boyfriend confronted him. An argument ensued and the assailant pulled out a knife, stabbing and slashing the 27-year-old boyfriend in the torso and shoulders. His friends tried to help him and were slashed around the head and shoulders. All Â“ve are in stable condition. The Turtle Bay Bar on Second Avenue near East 52nd Street was evacuated after the attack. Police say the suspect is in his 20s and was wearing a white shirt and white hat. DENVER (AP) Â„ Denver police say an off-duty FBI agent dancing at a nightclub accidentally discharged a Â“rearm, wounding another patron in the leg. Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said in a statement Saturday that the victim was taken to an unidentiÂ“ed hospital in good condition. Jackson says the agent, whose identity wasnÂt released, was dancing at the downtown club around 12:45 a.m. Saturday when the Â“rearm fell from the agentÂs waistband holster onto the Â”oor. It discharged when the agent picked it up. Jackson says the agent was later released to an FBI supervisor. He says police are investigating and any charges would be determined by the Denver District AttorneyÂs OfÂ“ce. Denver FBI spokeswoman Amy Sanders refused to comment, citing an ongoing investigation. A telephone message to the nightclub, Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar, wasnÂt immediately returned. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATION HONOLULU (AP) Â„ A Japanese couple is facing $50,000 in medical costs after being assaulted in a public restroom at a Honolulu park, a Hawaii visitorsÂ assistance organization said. The couple was attacked Monday at the Mother Waldron Neighborhood Park, leading the Japanese consulate to issue a warning Tuesday for tourists to avoid public bathrooms in Kakaako, the Honolulu StarAdvertiser reported. The man was hit in the face after entering the restroom, said Jessica Lani Rich, president of the Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii. Hearing a noise, his wife then entered the bathroom and was choked, causing her to brieÂ”y pass out, Rich said. Honolulu police had reported the encounter to the society. The couple came upon a group of men injecting drugs inside the bathroom, according to the consulateÂs warning written in Japanese. Both the man and woman were punched in the face, leaving them with broken teeth, the warning stated. The couple returned to Japan this week. ÂItÂs really sad when our visitors are assaulted when they come to Hawaii to have a wonderful, dream vacation,ÂŽ Rich said. The group has offered to solicit donations to help pay for the coupleÂs medical expenses, Rich said. ÂTheir biggest concern is their hospital expense,ÂŽ Rich said. Â(Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii) does not pay hospital bills, but we are trying to do what we can to raise money.ÂŽ The city closed the park Tuesday for maintenance. The closure was announced before the attack occurred, and itÂs scheduled to reopen next month.Couple attacked in Honolulu faces $50K in medical costs In this Tuesday photo, Rep.

By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesSEATTLE Â„ The shock of being traded by the Rays to the Mariners a week ago has finally worn off for RHP Alex Colome. The adjustment to a new team and, more importantly, a new role behind closer Edwin Diaz has gone well. So Friday, in his first comments to Tampa Bay media since the deal, was the time for his formal goodbye. ÂItÂs really hard for me, Colome said. ÂThey signed me in 2007. IÂve always been a Ray. I just say, thank you for By RICK STROUDTampa Bay TimesTAMPA Â„ It was sunny, 87 degrees with humidity around 70 percent. But it felt more like summer than it had in some time during the BucsÂ organized team activities practice Thursday. Players ran gassers afterward, testing the limits of ÂvoluntaryÂŽ offseason workouts. ÂIt was oppressive,ÂŽ coach Dirk Koetter said. ÂReally, add six or seven degrees, this is training camp today. I think the guys adjust pretty fast to that. In training camp, we practice in the morning, so (Thursday) is as tough as it gets.ÂŽ In fact, it felt a lot like the kind of heat the Bucs experience in the summer and early fall. Which brings us to 347pound rookie defensive tackle Vita Vea. Of course, players were not in pads, it wasnÂt close to simulating a game and there is virtually no real contact between offensive and defensive linemen. But Vea, the firstround pick from Washington, has shown no signs of having trouble adjusting to the warmer, humid climate. ÂWhat weÂve seen is a guy that his weight definitely has not affected him,ÂŽ Koetter said. The Bucs have seen more than that. VeaÂs size and quickness show up in routine line drills. So does his strength, which may be his biggest asset. ÂHeÂs got an excellent motor and he is a very strong human being,ÂŽ Koetter said. ÂYou can ask those guards that are playing against him. I mean, heÂs got a (hump) move with that inside arm. IÂve seen him lift 300-pound men off the ground with one arm. ItÂs impressive, his strength.ÂŽ Vea, 23, has a lot to learn about the NFL game. He will have the luxury of having good mentors in defensive tackles Gerald McCoy, Beau Allen and Mitch Unrein.By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesSEATTLE Â„ Seeing Alex Colome and Denard Span in Mariner home whites this weekend is the latest product of the relationship between the Rays and Mariners that seems to be one of the coziest in the game. Besides the cracks about a baseball bromance between general managers Erik Neander and Jerry Dipoto Â„ and there are plenty, such as Chris ArcherÂs, ÂYou know theyÂre favorites in each otherÂs phoneÂŽ Â„ there are several commonalities that have led to nine trades, involving 28 players (including Anthony Misiewicz, twice) over the past 2 years.

TheyÂre different enough By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS Â„ If the upcoming French Open showdown between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova provides any of the sort of animus and back-andforth they manage to stir up away from the court, look out. During a news conference after both won Saturday to set up the longtime rivalsÂ fourthround matchup at Roland Garros, Williams criticized SharapovaÂs autobiography as ÂhearsayÂŽ and twice brought up the RussianÂs 15-month doping ban. Producing by far the best performance in her return to Grand Slam tennis Â„ 16 months after her last major tournament and nine months after having a baby Â„ Williams played cleanly and powerfully in a 6-3, 6-4 tour de force against 11th-seeded Julia Goerges that lasted a mere 75 minutes and lacked much in the way of theatrics. ÂThere is still a ways to go, but itÂs moving in the right direction,ÂŽ said Williams, who made only three unforced errors in the first set, 12 in all. ÂAnd I think that as long as itÂs moving in the right direction, I know I will get there.ÂŽ Sharapova advanced with a similarly lopsided win, 6-2, 6-1 against 2016 U.S. Open runnerup Karolina Pliskova. Now comes the drama: Williams vs. Sharapova on Monday with a quarterfinal spot at stake. They have verbally clashed in the past, such as a 2013 public spat about their private lives. Williams, 36, owns 23 major singles titles. Sharapova, 31, has won five. Williams has won the French Open three times, Sharapova twice. They are the only active women with a career Grand Slam; they are two of six in history to accomplish that.

ÂThey all played well Â„ you own a piece of this win last night.ÂŽ Mann beamed with pride when more than a half-dozen players he coached with the American Hockey LeagueÂs Hershey Bears contributed to the victory that got the Capitals into the Eastern Conference final. Many of those players are still playing key roles for Washington in the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights Â„ more than a month after Mann was fired from his job as HersheyÂs head coach. This is a bittersweet time for Mann, who had a hand in the development of Jakub Vrana, Chandler Stephenson and Christian Djoos as coach and was an assistant when Braden Holtby, John Carlson, Dmitry Orlov, Andre Burakovsky, Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson went through Hershey on their way to the NHL. Considering the success of those players and Hershey products Nate Schmidt and Cody Eakin contributing for Vegas, the Cup Final is a validation of MannÂs methods of getting prospects ready for the next level. ÂI called Troy Mann the other day and thanked him for producing a lot of good players,ÂŽ Trotz said. ÂAll the players he had the last couple of years are all playing in the Stanley Cup Finals. Guys who havenÂt played a (playoff) game before. TheyÂve brought some of that winning tradition that they had in Hershey.

By JOHN LEICESTERAssociated PressPARIS Â„ Surely, thatÂs no way to treat a friend? Rafael Nadal beat his old buddy Richard Gasquet for a 16th consecutive time Saturday, making theirs one of the most lopsided duels in menÂs tennis. The Spaniard and the Frenchman were born 15 days apart in 1986. TheyÂve known each other since they were young prodigies. But with a racket in his hand, Nadal is ruthless with the player he calls Âa good friend and a good person.ÂŽ With friends like that, who needs enemies? NadalÂs streak against Gasquet stretches back to 2004. Gasquet hasnÂt taken so much as a set off Nadal in 10 years. Their third-round match at the French Open on Saturday followed a familiar pattern: Nadal subjected Gasquet to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 pummeling. At 16-0, NadalÂs headto-head record against Gasquet is now one of the most lopsided since the professional era began in 1968. Bjorn Borg went 17-0 against Vitas Gerulaitis; Ivan Lendl did likewise against Tim Mayotte. Roger Federer has 17-0 streaks going against Mikhail Youzhny and David Ferrer. With his gentlemanly right-handed tennis, Gasquet quickly finds himself overpowered by the left-handed Nadal. ÂWhen he plays on his backhand, he has an intensity which is monstrous,ÂŽ Gasquet said after the latest loss. ÂI really have trouble with his forehand that comes to my shoulder every time.ÂŽTENNIS: French OpenNadalÂs 16-0 streak vs. old buddy GasquetBy JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Â„ All the chatter is that underdog Cleveland could be completely deflated from the way it flopped in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Determined and as motivated as ever might be more appropriate and fitting whenever LeBron James is in the mix. ÂItÂs one of the toughest losses IÂve had in my career,ÂŽ James acknowledged Saturday, Âbecause of everything that kind of went on with the game and the way we played. Obviously, we all know what happened in the game.ÂŽ There were miscues aplenty, most notably J.R. SmithÂs offensive rebound in the final seconds of regulation that he dribbled back toward half-court in a tie game rather than shooting for a chance to win it Â„ later insisting he knew the score, though that remains a huge mystery. The decision baffled a frustrated and stunned LeBron, who signaled at his teammate with arms pointed toward the basket. ÂThe gameÂs over. ThereÂs nothing we can do about it,ÂŽ Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. ÂWeÂve got to move on, move forward.ÂŽ James has done so all postseason with an edge, intensity and ability to all-out carry the Cavs Â„ will them to win after win, if you wish. Yes, with King James on the other side in this familiar June rivalry, Golden State knows much better than to fall into such a trap that the Cavs might be down and out, even if the defending champions have some momentum going into Game 2 on Sunday night back home at Oracle Arena.

Peter Maris opened the gameÂs scoring in the 1st Inning with his 5th home run of the year, a solo shot to right field. However, Bradenton would answer back in the 3rd inning, with a home run of their own, the first of three extrabase hits on the night for Marauders third baseman Hunter Owen,. The Marauders would chase Stone Crabs starter Willy Ortiz in the fifth inning, scoring 5-runs, with the big blast coming from shortstop Jung Ho Kang, whose grand slam helped give Bradenton what they thought would be a comfortable cushion. However, the Stone Crabs rallied back in the 6th inning scoring 5-runs of their own. Stone Crabs reliever Zack Mozingo pitched effectively in relief, giving way to fellow fireman Brandon Koch in the 8th inning. However, after yielding an infield single and a walk, Koch surrendered the winning run, with Owen delivering his third RBI of the night.MILB: Stone CrabsStone CrabsÂ woes continue NHL: FinalsCapitals Â” ying high up 2-1 on Vegas in Stanley Cup FinalBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Alex O vechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored, Braden Holtby made enough saves to compensate for his giveaway and the Washington Capitals beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final. Ovechkin scored his 14th goal of the playoffs and joyfully watched Kuznetsov wrist a shot past Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury not long after. Kuznetsov was a game-time decision after leaving Game 2 clutching his left arm, but he looked fine and for good measure unleashed his signature birdflapping celebration as Ovechkin screamed and raised his arms on the bench. Holtby stopped 21 of the 22 shots he faced, more than enough to withstand a puck-handling miscue that led to Tomas NosekÂs third-period goal to cut WashingtonÂs lead to 2-1. Devante Smith-Pelly scored for the Capitals with 6:07 left to put them two away from the franchiseÂs first title. Fleury stopped 23 of 26 shots, but Vegas lost back-to-back games for the first time in the playoffs and looked nothing like the team that won 13 of 16 games through three rounds. The Golden KnightsÂ magical, historic run is now in danger of coming to an end with Game 4 back in Washington on Monday.
The Sun / Sunday, June 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressDUBLIN, Ohio Â„ Bryson DeChambeau finished off a 6-under 66 with birdies on two of the toughest holes, giving him a one-shot lead going into a final round at a Memorial that features Tiger Woods in the mix at Muirfield Village for the first time in six years. Woods was in total control of his shots for the second straight day, only to miss short putts down the stretch that spoiled his run. He was briefly tied for the lead Saturday until threeputt bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes, and he had to settle for a 68. He was five shots behind. Woods wasnÂt alone in missing short putts. Walking off the course with his first 54-hole lead, DeChambeau couldnÂt but help but think of the two that got away. He missed a 3-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole, and then missed a birdie putt from 4 feet on the par-5 15th. With the course soft and vulnerable to low scores, it was tough to leave shots on the course. ÂJust keep thinking about those two 3-footers I missed,ÂŽ said DeChambeau, who was at 14-under 202. ÂI played great, obviously. Ecstatic about where I am.ÂŽ DeChambeau wasnÂt even sure where he was when he finished because so many players worked their way up and down the leaderboard over the final two hours. He wound up with a one-shot lead over Kyle Stanley, who bogeyed the 18th hole from the bunker for a 70; Patrick Cantlay, who drove into the creek left of the 18th fairway for a bogey and a 66; and Joaquin Niemann, the 19-year-old from Chile who atoned for one big mistake on the 15th hole with a birdie on the 18th for a 70. Cantlay made two eagles, including a holein-one on the par-3 eighth. DeChambeau rolled in a 20-foot birdie on the par-3 16th, the third-toughest at Muirfield Village in the third round, and he hit 9-iron to 5 feet on the toughest hole the 18th. Six players had at least a share of the lead at some point. Byeong Hun An played bogey-free for a 69 and was two shots behind, while Justin Rose dropped two shots over the last three holes for a 69 and was four back. Woods played the last five holes of the front nine in 5 under, starting with his second eagle of the week. And then he stalled, just like he did on Friday. He didnÂt make another birdie until the par-5 15th, when his sharp-breaking 15-footer dropped to give him a tie for the lead. That didnÂt last long. Woods ran his 45-foot birdie putt about 7 feet by on the par-3 16th and missed it coming back, and then closed by missing a 3-foot par putt. ÂI know I shot 68 today, but again, thatÂs probably the highest score I could have possibly shot,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂI played really, really well. I played beautifully, actually. Had total control of what I was doing out there and just didnÂt finish it off.ÂŽ He won the Memorial for the fifth time in 2012, finished 20 shots behind the following year and then injuries took over. He finished in last place in 2015, the last time he was at Muirfield Village. This year has produced the kind of golf Ohio fans are used to seeing. And the weather is about par for Muirfield Village, with more thunderstorms expected Sunday. The final round will be threesomes teeing off earlier than usual to account for the forecast. ÂThe weather is going to be a little iffy,ÂŽ Woods said. ÂBut IÂm in a position where if I shoot another good round like I had the last two days, IÂve got a chance.ÂŽ Rory McIlroy, remarkably, has reason to feel the same way. McIlroy nearly missed the cut, surviving on the number after two days. He played bogey-free for a 64 and wound up just six shots behind. Just like Woods and DeChambeau, he had a few regrets on the greens. McIlroy missed three birdie chances inside 8 feet.GOLF: MemorialDeChambeau takes 1-shot lead as Woods lurks at MemorialAP PHOTOBryson DeChambeau follows his tee shot on the 18th hole during the third round of the Memorial golf tournament Saturday, in Dublin, Ohio. By DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Â„ Sarah Jane Smith has a three-shot lead entering the third round of the U.S. WomenÂs Open. The Australian shot a 5-under 67 Friday, finishing her second round before more thunderstorms soaked an already wet Shoal Creek course. Half the field completed the second round Saturday morning. ThailandÂs Ariya Jutanugarn is second after a 70. South Koreanborn Su-Hyun Oh, who moved to Australia at 8, shot a 68 and is third. SheÂs four shots behind Smith, who is at 10-under 134 for the tournament. Michelle Wie is among eight players tied for fourth, seven shots off the lead. Wie had a 72 in the second round after a 69 Thursday. The third round begins with groups of three, starting on the first and 10th tees.GOLF: US WomenÂs OpenSarah Jane Smith up by 3 at US W omenÂs Open at Shoal Creek AP PHOTOSarah Jane Smith, of Australia, and her caddie husband, Duane Smith, talk about her tee shot on the 18th hole during the second round of the U.S. WomenÂs Open golf tournament at Shoal Creek, Friday, in Birmingham, Ala. in the stages of roster construction to recognize and address matchups. And they have enough trust to be able to have open, direct and skip-the-bull-and-cutto-the-chase talks. ÂThey obviously have a good working relationship, front office to front office,ÂŽ said Rays infielder Brad Miller, part of the first deal after Dipoto took over the Mariners following the 2015 season. ÂItÂs kind of unique. ThereÂs clearly something there. I donÂt think itÂs chance. They know how each other works. ItÂs kind of mutually advantageous.ÂŽ The frat chat between Neander and Dipoto is what seals deals, but there is so much work involved before they say ÂI do,ÂŽ such as reports on the medicals, analytical projections, financial implications. It all starts with the work of the scouts, the RaysÂ eclectic 15-man crew that is out in ballparks across the country and beyond almost every day, watching, identifying, evaluating and recommending players long before their names are ever on the table. That includes Â„ and proved critical in several of the deals with the Mariners Â„ work at many of the lowest levels of the minors, as far as extended spring training and summer first-year leagues, which the Rays focus on more heavily than some other teams. ÂI might be a little biased, but I think our group does a tremendous job from the major leagues all the way down to the Dominican Summer League of really covering all the levels so we donÂt have a blind spot when someone does have an idea,ÂŽ Rays pro scouting director Kevin Ibach said. ÂSo when Erik and Jerry might first discuss something and it filters down, I think weÂre in a really good position to honestly evaluate not only their system but to take a look from our side, too, and weigh in on whether the trade would be a net positive for us.ÂŽ The Rays encourage their scouts not only to be vigilant and observant, knowing even the smallest tidbit about a player on or off the field can be a big thing, but also open minded, creative and aggressive in making suggestions, pushing the paired themes that Âno idea is a bad ideaÂŽ and Âno name is a bad name.ÂŽ The workload is shared, as the Rays are among the half or so teams that do their pro scouting geographically rather than by organization. That means, for example, rather than having one scout be responsible for all of SeattleÂs minorleague teams, they use several scouts to cover the Mariners affiliates (as well as those of other teams) near where they live, creating what they consider a benefit of multiple opinions on some players. Seattle-based Dave Myers Â„a former Mariners majorand minor-league coach and former Rays TripleA coach Â„ handles the big-league team, Triple-A Tacoma, rookie-level Everett (Wash.) and advanced Class A Modesto (Calif). J.D. Elliby has Double-A Arkansas, Jeff Stewart Class A Clinton (Iowa), Mike Langill extended spring and the complexbased Arizona league, and Jose Gomez the Dominican summer league teams. Cross-checker Jason Cole posts up at the Mariners/Padres shared spring camp. All have had a hand in the deals, and well beyond the obvious. ÂYou canÂt go out from our perspective and only scout the famous guys,ÂŽ Ibach said. ÂI always challenge our guys to find the Âoff-the-radar typesÂ that are down a little bit deeper in the system and maybe have that one pitch or the sum of the parts that add up to something that functions really well.ÂŽ That commitment to scout the low levels and scout hard has factored in to several of the deals with Seattle. Neither pitchers Ryan Yarbrough nor Andrew Kittredge were considered prime prospects when acquired, but the Rays saw them as future major-leaguers in the skilled hands of their player development staff, and both made it. Shortstop Carlos Vargas was a 17-year-old who had played only one pro season in the Dominican League, but the Rays had good reports on him. Catcher Jesus Sucre proved more than capable of being a big-league backup after three years bouncing to Triple A. Sometimes the diligence, preparation and complex scheduling (such as trying to scout a team for six straight games to see all the pitchers) pays off. And sometimes so does a little luck, too. Twice this season Ibach went to see the other team when Tommy Romero pitched, and impressively, for SeattleÂs Class A Clinton team. So when they were looking to complete the Span/Colome deal last week, IbachÂs data, plus reports from the amateur scouting staff, including at last yearÂs predraft workout at the Trop, led to Romero bein g included. ÂJust given the history,ÂŽ Ibach said, Âour antennas are up any time weÂre in the ballpark scouting a Mariners affiliate.ÂŽ Probably a good idea. Marc Topkin can be reached at mtopkin@ tampabay.com.

The group of about 300 kids (many paying $149 to attend) included 75 from Special Olympics, as well as 16 boys and girls from his hometown in Alabama who won a collage contest and were brought to Tampa with their parents to attend the camp for free. With rain much of the week and summer heat, Winston was grateful to be able to move his camp indoors to the BucsÂ new facility, where parents could watch their kids without worrying about sunburns. ÂI canÂt give enough thanks to the Bucs,ÂŽ Winston said. ÂTampaÂs hot, and for us to be able to do this here in this indoor facility is huge. You see the excitement of the kids. (They) donÂt have to get 10 water breaks because of the heat. I thank the Bucs wholeheartedly.ÂŽ Winston, who recently got engaged and has a baby on the way in July, said a fundraiser Friday night for his Dream Forever Foundation went well, and heÂs happy to be able to give back to the Tampa Bay area. ÂThis is our community,ÂŽ Winston said. ÂHopefully they can see in their hearts that my foundation is helping support the kids. ThatÂs what itÂs all about. My child is going to grow up in this community hopefully, so itÂs exciting to be able to put on events like this.ÂŽWINSTONFrom Page 1everything they did for me, for giving me the opportunity to be the closer, to be pitching every time.ÂŽ After sticking with the Rays through a winter of rumors, Colome figured he would be traded at some point this season, just not that soon. ÂI was on the couch resting for the game when they called me (in). I said, ÂWhat?Â They said, ÂYes, we traded you,Â ÂÂ Colome relayed. ÂI knew that going to happen this year, but not this soon. When they tell me Âƒ I said, ÂDamn.Â Â A year after leading the majors in saves, Colome will be used primarily as a setup man to Diaz, who leads the majors with 19 saves and an AL-reliever high 48 strikeouts in 28 innings. And Colome said thatÂs okay: ÂI just try to do my job. ItÂs fine. I donÂt care. Like I told you before, IÂll throw anywhere they give me the opportunity.ÂŽ Manager Scott Servais said he welcomes having Colome as an option for when Diaz needs a day off, already using him to close once. Aside from being a little chilly on some nights in Seattle, Colome said he has adjusted well and noted how well he has been treated. He is lookin g forward to returning to the Trop with the Mariners next week to see the fans and stadium personnel. As for facing the Rays? ÂThey know what I do, IÂm just going to throw the fastball and cutter to everybody,ÂŽ he said. ÂOn the mound, no friends. But they know I love these guys and respect every one for the Rays.ÂŽSpanning the countryTampa-raised OF Denard Span was also traded from the Rays to the Mariners in the deal for two pitching prospects. Though Span wasnÂt in the lineup Friday, Servais said he has been a ÂwelcomeÂŽ addition, primarily because of his p atient at-bats. ÂHeÂs been around, heÂs got a lot of experience in the league, his preparation is very good,ÂŽ Servais said.Nothing sticky hereRHP Nathan Eovaldi denied the on-air accusation by AÂs TV analyst, and former big-leaguer, Dallas Braden that he was using pine tar on his hand during WednesdayÂs game, as some pitchers do to improve their grip. ÂI donÂt use any sort of sticky stuff,ÂŽ Eovaldi said Friday. ÂHonestly, if you all want to look at my glove, thatÂs fine. The only thing I use is rosin. The reason is I want the ball to feel free coming out when I throw m y s p lit, because thatÂs my go-to strike pitch and I donÂt want to have any sticky substance to manipulate it to cut. Âƒ I donÂt have anything in my glove or any sticky substance anywhere. Âƒ I donÂt have anything to hide. ÂPeople can say what they want. I know whatÂs true and whatÂs not.ÂŽFor openersRHP Sergio Romo made his fifth start as the game Âopener,ÂŽ and for the first time the opposing team made a significant change to its lineup in reaction, with the Mariners moving up Kyle Seager to have two lefties in the top three. Rays manager Kevin Cash reiterated that he felt the p lan has worked for his team even though its 3-3 in the games when it has used a reliever to get the first three-six outs.MiscellanyÂ€ Interesting that the Dodgers borrowed from the Rays and used a reliever as their ÂopenerÂŽ Friday against the Rockies. Â€ Cash said SS Adeiny Hechavarria remains sidelined by his hamstring strain, still limited to getting treatment with no onfield activity. Â€ RHP Chris Archer starts Saturday, saying his improved May is the result of executing more pitches but no other real change, more an evening out of his performance over a long season.COLOMEFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, June 3, 2018 / The Sun Say Goodbye to Erectile DysfunctionPaid Advertisement The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood ow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and c reams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a ÂtreatmentÂŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that ÂAcoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.ÂŽ The physicians and professional medical sta at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood ow cannot enter into the penis,thus creating ED.Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, rmer and more sustainable erections. NO SURGERY(239) 887-3602Southwest Florida Medical Group www.SWFLMedicalGroup.comIndividual results may vary. All rights reserved.adno=50536987By DAN GELSTONAssociated PressLONG POND, Pa. Â„ Kyle Busch spent the week in New York City with his family, hitting the town and taking in the sights like any other tourist. His wife wore a Yankees cap as they caught a baseball game and the couple attended a theater production of ÂSleep No More.ÂŽ The outings seemed fitting: Busch is enjoying his time leading the points standing while he gives the rest of the field a few restless nights. Busch and Kevin Harvick have turned NASCAR into a two-driver show Â„ theyÂve won nine of 13 races Â„ and the rest of the drivers are simply playing catch-up to the former champions. The 33-year-old Busch, the 2015 Cup champ, is on course for a career year. His four wins are four shy of matching his career best in 2008, he has three poles and eight top-five finishes, and he has racked up so many playoff points (25) that he could seemingly waltz into Homestead in the season finale and race for the title. The Joe Gibbs Racing star is coming off a sensational effort in the No. 18 Toyota at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He won the pole for the Coca-Cola 600, won all four stages, led 377 of 400 laps and became the only driver in NASCARÂs modern era to win a points race on every track on the schedule. Busch won the second Pocono race last season and then romped at Charlotte to knock the last two winless tracks off his resume. ÂItÂs just something that has never been done, and itÂs hard to find things that have never been done in this sport,ÂŽ Busch said. ÂItÂs been around for a long, long time. So itÂs very meaningful and special and something that IÂve kind of strived for.ÂŽ Busch has been special in the sport since he won two races driving for Rick Hendrick in 2005 and has at least one victory every season of his career, including at least four each from 2015 to the present. He won SaturdayÂs Xfinity race at Pocono and has 189 wins across NASCARÂs three national series (Cup, second-tier Xfinity and Trucks), which puts him 11 shy of matching Richard Petty for the overall record. Petty, of course, won all 200 races in the Cup series and the countdown to The King has irked traditionalists who believe the two drivers should barely be mentioned in the same sentence. BuschÂs 47 Cup wins, while impressive in any era and 15th on the career list, canÂt catch Petty and 200 will remain NASCARÂs Holy Grail. WhatÂs not in dispute is BuschÂs milestone of winning at every active Cup track. NASCAR returns in September to Charlotte, where the series for the first time will race on the trackÂs road course. Some of BuschÂs critics Â„ of which he has plenty because of a career pockmarked with boorish behavior Â„ believe the track record wonÂt count until he wins on the new layout. ÂEverybody wants to make my life more difficult, so IÂm sure that I wonÂt be credited for all the racetracks once the Roval gets here,ÂŽ he said. But the track name is the track name and the mark stands, no matter the result. ÂI think everybody just around the sport really appreciates how hard that is,ÂŽ team owner Joe Gibbs said. ÂFor him to do that, particularly Kyle is young, and for him to be able to get that done at this age I think is special. I think everybody around the sport really appreciates it.ÂŽMOTORSPORTS: NASCARBusch has few mountains left to climb in NASCAR careerAP PHOTOKyle Busch answers questions in an interview during practice for SundayÂs NASCAR Cup Series auto race, Saturday, in Long Pond, Pa. By DAN GELSTONAssociated PressLONG POND, Pa. Â„ Kyle Bu sch had a flicker of concern when a speeding penalty dumped him to the rear of the field. ÂYouÂre always worried about something crazy or unpredictable situations taking place,ÂŽ he said. ThereÂs very little unpredictable about an Xfinity Series race with Busch in the field. He romped again, overcoming an early penalty that dropped him to the back to win the Xfinity Series race on Saturday at Pocono Raceway for his 189th career NASCAR victory. ÂWe knew we had speed in our race car. It was really fast out front,ÂŽ he said. He led 24 of the first 26 laps and the final 40 to win for the 92nd time in Xfinity to add to his series record. Busch scaled back his schedule in the second-tier series and won for the first time in four races this season. ÂI hear about the numbers from everyone else. I donÂt necessarily go back and check stats or look at records,ÂŽ he said. The 33-year-old Busch is piling up quite the list of milestones over a 14-plus year career. Busch also has 47 Cup wins and 50 in the Truck Series to become perhaps the most dominant driver across all three national NASCAR series in history. He dominated early on Saturday and won the first stage until he was busted on the 27th lap for speeding on pit road.MOTOR SPORTS: XÂ“ nity SeriesBusch dominates again to win XÂ“ nity Series race at PoconoAssociated PressEPSOM, England Â„ The Dubai-owned Godolphin stable celebrated its first victory in the English Derby on Saturday when Masar achieved a 16-1 upset victory in the 239th edition of the race. Beaten into third in the 2000 Guineas last month by Saxon Warrior, William BuickÂs Masar turned the tables on Aidan OÂBrienÂs favorite, which finished fourth. ÂItÂs not easy to win the Derby, but we have won it,ÂŽ said Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who founded Godolphin. ÂI was jumping up and down in the final furlong. Horses are in my blood, I love them.ÂŽ In a Godolphin double, Dee Ex Bee was second Â„ running in the colors of Sheikh MohammedÂs son, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum. Masar, trainer Charlie ApplebyÂs colt, finished 1 lengths ahead of Dee Ex Bee. ÂWe came here with doubts about his effectiveness on the track and IÂm not sure it suits,ÂŽ Dee Ex Bee trainer Mark Johnston said. ÂBecause of the camber he rolled on to the one on his inside, but he rallied again up the hill so it bodes really well for the future.ÂŽHORSE RACING: English DerbyDubai-owned Godolphin stable claims 1st English Derby win But opposing offenses will have to account for Vea. ItÂs hard to imagine teams trying to block Vea with one player, and McCoy already draws more than his fair share of double teams. Together, they should create some one-on-one opportunities for their line-mates, which is key for a team that was last in the NFL with 22 sacks last season.Mr. Inside, Mr. OutsideIt takes more than one running back in the NFL these days. The Eagles certainly proved what you can do splitting carries with three. New Orleans had the perfect combination last season of a tough, inside runner in Mark Ingram and a threat on the perimeter in Alvin Kamara. As good as Drew Brees is, the Saints rode those backs to the NFC divisional playoff game. The Bucs believe they have that in Peyton Barber and rookie Ronald Jones, the second-round pick from Southern Cal. Barber led the Bucs in rushing despite not really seeing much action until the second half of the 2017 season. He had career highs with 23 carries for 102 yards (4.4 avg.) to with four catches for 41 yards in an overtime loss against the Packers. It was the only time a Bucs player reached the century rushing mark last season. ÂI donÂt know what Ronald is going to do because Ronald hasnÂt done it in the NFL,ÂŽ offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. ÂI know what IÂve seen from Ronald and I know what IÂve seen from Peyton Barber. Peyton gives you a different dimension in the case of 2 yards being 4 yards, and 4 yards being 6 yards, and 6 yards being 8 yards Â„ finishing off runs. There is something about a run that gets finished off invigorates your team right along your sideline, or a great block by a wideout, or an effort play, or a guy that breaks a tackle.ÂŽTitanic workoutsThe Bucs will have joint workouts with the Titans for two practices before their Aug. 18 preseason game at Tennessee. Koetter believes it not only breaks the monotony of training camp, but the practices give coaches a better evaluation of players. ÂI think the main thing that people try to get out of those joint practices is Â„ training camp is a fairly long process and it doesnÂt take too long for the players to get tired of going against each other,ÂŽ Koetter said. ÂI mean, even out here, youÂre going (against) the same matchups every day. When youÂre the right guard for the Buccaneers and the two guys youÂre going against are Gerald McCoy and Vita Vea every day, you want to go against somebody else. ÂAs an offense and defense, we want to go against different schemes. The BucsÂ O playing the BucsÂ D, we sort of know each otherÂs tendencies. So you want to see some different things, and then we also get officials so we play some situations. ItÂs just good crossover work and weÂre thankful that the Titans are going to let us work with them.ÂŽPlayer of the weekWR Bobo Wilson, an undrafted rookie from Florida State a year ago, is making some splashy plays during OTAs but could have trouble earning a job on a crowded receiving corps. ÂYeah, BoboÂs having one of the best offseasons of anybody,ÂŽ Koetter said. ÂI said at the end of last year he was one of the most improved players. Two guys, receiver-wise, that stick out almost every day are Bobo Wilson and Freddie Martino. TheyÂre going with the second group because weÂve got four guys going with the first group. ÂSo they get to go with Fitz (Ryan Fitzpatrick) and with Griff (Ryan Griffin), whoeverÂs working the second quarterback that day, and theyÂre getting a lot of balls thrown to them. Bobo has gone from a guy that could only play one position to a guy that could play all three, which helps his chances. HeÂs just become so much more coachable.ÂŽVEAFrom Page 1MONICA HERNDON | TIMESDefensive tackle Vita Vea runs drills during organized team activities on May 22. have been ranked No. 1. But the head-to-head history is overwhelmingly in WilliamsÂ favor: She has won 19 of 21 meetings, including 18 in a row. ÂQuite frankly, sheÂs probably a favorite in this match, for sure,ÂŽ Williams said with a chuckle. ÂSheÂs been playing ... for over a year now. I just started. So IÂm just really trying to get my bearings and trying to feel out where I am and see where I can go.ÂŽ The last time Sharapova beat Williams was in 2004. The last time they played was in the 2016 Australian Open quarterfinals, SharapovaÂs final appearance before her 15-month drug suspension. ÂWell, itÂs been a while,ÂŽ Sharapova said, Âand I think a lot has happened in our lives for the both of us, in very different ways.ÂŽTENNISFrom Page 1
