NORTH PORT „ After a lengthy discussion was cut short, parking regulations will once again be discussed by the City Commission. At their May 22 meeting, the North Port commissioners gave consensus on several items, which will be further discussed and possibly approved at their meeting on Thursday. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. in City Commission chambers and starting at 4 p.m. there will be a recognition portion for city proclamations. The general consensus for parking would be to limit the number of vehicles to some extent, based on the size of residents property. Lots under 11,000 square feet, which is a single family lot, are limited to six vehicles. Lots that are 11,001 to 22,000 square feet, which is an average of two lots, can have eight vehicles. Lots over 22,000 square get eight vehicles and for every 10,000 square feet get one more vehicle. There is a maximum of 12 vehicles. There will also be discussion and possible action on a historical registry record system and angled parking along U.S. 41. Both of those items had to be removed from the May 22 agenda due to the lengthy parking discussion. A presentation on body cameras is also on the meeting agenda, set to be given by interim Police Chief Chris Morales. North Port Police have dashboard cameras in their vehicles but do not have body cameras, which are worn by officers. The meeting can be viewed online at cityofnorthport. or on Youtube under city of North Port.ŽEmail: North Port parking rules back on agendaBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERFlorida voters spoke loudly in the 2016 presidential election: More than two-thirds of them voted early or by mail, not on election day. That clear preference has county elections of“cials thinking about a big change to the use of regional vote centers in the future. An increasingly mobile society and the widespread support for early voting makes it inevitable, experts say, that people will vote at regional sites. Check the numbers: More people voted early than by mail or on election day in 2016. Voters could go to any vote center in their county and cast a ballot, and the traditional neighborhood polling place at a VFW hall or church would be a thing of the past. No matter where you live and vote, the correct ballot for your precinct would be provided on demand at a vote center. People want to vote early, and they want to vote by mail,Ž says Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles in Orlando, where 73 percent of voters cast early or mail ballots in 2016. In a survey of all 67 county election supervisors, more than two-thirds of those participating favored the idea of vote centers, and fewer than a third opposed the idea. Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Hillsborough all like the concept. We already know how to plan and execute this,Ž said Hillsborough County elections chief Craig Latimer. Vote centers would eliminate any confusion voters may have about where they are required to vote on Election Day, because they could vote anywhere.Ž Hernando voted yes for vote centers. So did Collier, Lake, Osceola, St. Lucie, Santa Rosa and Pasco. Voters are ”ocking to early voting more and more Vote centers: The next big thing in Florida elections?By STEVE BOUSQUETTIMES/HERALD BUREAUVOTE | 4A North Port man and a Punta Gorda woman learned recently that Florida takes wildlife violations seriously. North Port resident Justin Laidler, 19, was cited for illegal alligator hunting, according to reports from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. He was charged with a second-degree misdemeanor that could result in a $500 “ne and 60 days in jail. Wildlife of“cers cited Punta Gorda resident Marie Ross, 71, for repeatedly feeding raccoons.

According to reports, of“cers received calls about someone illegally hunting alligators in a secluded canal at Yorkshire Street in North Port. Investigating of“cers spotted Laidler, whom they deemed suspicious.Ž (Of“cers) drove around the block and within a short time they heard gunshots,Ž the report stated. When they came back to the location they saw (Laidler) with some bolt cutters going down the embankment of the bridge.

Fine is $500 for hunting gators, $100 for feeding raccoonsWhile there has only been one credit card skimming attempt in Punta Gorda in 2018, the City Council is considering developing an ordinance to protect people at the citys gas stations. In May, a card skimmer was found at a gas pump at the Mobil gas station on Burnt Store Road and U.S. 41 in Punta Gorda. We have only had one skimmer found within the city limits over the past nine years,Ž said Punta Gorda Police Chief Pam Davis. Davis said that most of her experience with credit card skimmers comes after the fact when people report fraudulent charges on their cards. Most of the time, fraudulent charges related to skimmers have been outside our jurisdiction,Ž said Davis. We identify the jurisdiction and forward the case to them for investigation.Ž Currently, Davis said of“cers regularly patrol gas stations and banks. We also educate our citizens through social media and community meetings,Ž said Davis. Skimmers are illegal card readers that can be attached to payment terminals, such as gas pumps or ATMs. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the skimmers take data off a credit or debit cards magnetic stripe. Criminals can then sell the stolen data or use it to buy things online. In Charlotte County, there have been three other reports in the last six to eight months, according to Katie Heck, public information of“cer with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce. (There were) two at Marathon stations awhile back,Ž said Heck, one caught before the business even opened for the day.Ž There was also one reported at a Pik-N-Run over the weekend. Heck said that a countywide ordinance would need to be proposed and implemented by the County Commission. Im not aware of any staff or commissioner discussions on this topic as far as proposed ordinances being considered,Ž said Brian Gleason, communications manager with the county. The City Council will be discussing a potential ordinance at Wednesdays council meeting. The discussion will be based on an ordinance passed in Cape Coral. The Cape Coral ordinance requires that each gas pump have a locking device with a unique key to restrict access to a customers payment card information, according to the City Councils agenda.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia GARAGESALELISTINGSALWAYSINTHECLASSIFIEDS The city is considering rezoning the four-plus acres of 900 W. Marion Ave., formerly known as the IMPAC building. If the rezoning is approved by the City Council, the area will serve as an upgraded facility for the Military Heritage Museum, a hotel, local of“ce space, an auditorium and condominiums in the Punta Gorda area. The site was purchased by the applicant to complement and support Fishermens Village,Ž said Geri Waksler, attorney for McCrory Law Firm. Integrated Control Systems, IMPAC, built the $6 million training facility in Punta Gorda in 1994. We are excited to take a large vacant building and revitalize it to a new use,Ž said Kathy Burnam, marketing and events manager with Fishermens Village. The proposed rezoning will retain the sites existing con“guration. No major changes to the existing site are being proposed, neither are any new buildings. What this does is allow is for the establishment of a mixed-use project,Ž said Waksler. The applicant will renovate the interior of all the buildings.Ž Waksler said that building one will be converted to a hotel with 25 rooms. Building two will house the Military Heritage Museum. In building two, there is also 3,500 square feet of of“ce space, as well as a 244-seat auditorium. The auditorium is envisioned as an amenity for both residents and guests of this site and for the overnight guests at Fishermens Village,Ž said Waksler. Movies, entertainment, presentations can all be offered in the auditorium, but it will not be open to the general public so it will not generate any additional traf“c. The Fishermens Village people have golf cart and walkability (access) to the site. Were not anticipating any additional traf“c.Ž The third building will be converted into nine condominium units. According to Waksler, all the buildings will maintain their existing footprints. The only new construction that is proposed is a driveway connection from building three to the existing drive which accesses W. Retta Esplanade,Ž said Waksler. Thats new. That doesnt exist right now. That allows for traf“c ”ow through the entire site (and) creates a better ”ow of traf“c ... that is the only change to the site that is currently proposed.Ž The property has been vacant for several years. According to Lisa Hannon, zoning of“cial with the city, the property is currently zoned as neighborhood residential and designated to have 15 units per acre, which only permits residential uses. The IMPAC University was approved by special exception in 1992 for the use of the university,Ž said Hannon. The special exception 07-92 was terminated upon discontinuance of the use in 2011.Ž Traf“c in the area is a big issue. To address it, Waksler said that a transportation study was conducted and included with the rezoning application to the city. The study found that adopted levels of service on all the surrounding roadways will be maintained,Ž said Waksler. That means that the traf“c that this project will generate will not exceed the traf“c for which the road was designed and will not exceed the standard amount of traf“c that has been adopted by the City Council as being the maximum amount of traf“c thats allowed.Ž Waksler said that the proposed redevelopment stands to bene“t the city. This proposed redevelopment bene“ts the city by of“cially utilizing the existing infrastructure, utility infrastructure and roadway infrastructure, broadening the citys tourist amenities and options,Ž said Waksler. The addition of an upgraded Military Heritage Museum also enhances the citys cultural offerings.Ž Ultimately, Waksler said, the rezoning will bene“t the Punta Gorda community in the long run. It diversi“es the citys tax space by incorporating new commercial uses by the proposed of“ce and hotel,Ž she said. Perhaps, most importantly, it will allow a long dormant site to once again become a vibrant part of the community.Ž City staff recommended the approval of the rezoning to the citys planning commission. In order to revive the vacant buildings, the rezoning will have to be approved by the City Council.

The Rock the 80s Party marks the of“cial launch of this summers reading and activity program for kids and teens at the library. According to Erin Carter, reference librarian for the library, this year the facility chose a musical theme for its summer program. She said the librarians at Shannon Staub picked the 80s theme for the kick-off party, “guring parents and children would enjoy it. (There) is something for everybody,Ž she said. On Saturday, families will have an opportunity to do a variety of activities, from face painting and crafts to a Stranger ThingsŽ escape room for teens. The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. with story time where JumanjiŽ by Chris van Allsburg will be read, and music by DJ Jam All Day begins at 1 p.m. playing a variety of 80s music. FootlooseŽ by Kenny Loggins will also be read during one of the other story times on Saturday. Carter said the Stranger ThingsŽ escape room, which is based on the Net”ix show, will be held at a variety of times and the objective is to “nd Character 11. (There) will be an 80s arcade, board games, (and) food,Ž Carter said. There will also be a photo booth and an 80s themed photo contest. The event is free and open to all ages. Saturdays event marks the kick of Sarasota County Libraries summer learning program, which runs until Aug. 4. Kids will have an opportunity to win prizes by logging and reviewing the books they have read. Carter says that the kids will have to meet a goal to receive a prizes from the library. In addition to reading, kids can also participate in a variety of activities like dance workshops, a party centered around the Broadway musical Hamilton,Ž among other music themed activities. This years summer theme is Libraries Rock! and activities are centered around the music, according to Carter. Carter said the library will also have calendars and information available for the summer program.

The commission met Monday to review initial proposed budgets for projects in the capital improvement plans. The capital improvement plan includes any project over $50,000 for all the departments. Each department presented a list of projects they wish to have for “scal year 2019, which begins October. The requests below will not all be included in the “nal budget or even the next budget presentation. City Manager Pete Lear will choose to cut some or revise some requests based on commission feedback and simply crunching numbers. There will be another three-day budget session in July, and the “nal budget decisions will be voted on in September.Public Safety (Fire Rescue and Police)€ Public Safety Training Complex: $488,250 It would be near the driving track off of Price Boulevard and both Fire Chief Scott Titus and City Manager Pete Lear hope it could be a regional draw for other city departments. One of the things to consider is entire project could be a public safety training and it could be regional to attract other entities as well,Ž Lear said. Thats where the school and technical college (partnership) could really help. It could be a great thing for our city as a whole and it could be a regional asset, so you wouldnt have to go all the way to north Sarasota.Ž € Fire Station 81 Renovation: $2,775,000. € Emergency Operations Center and City Hall Generator: $1,250,000 The biggest cost would be the City Hall generator. The building currently does not have a backup generator, which Titus said is crucial during emergencies. Lear added suggested placing it in City Hall versus Fire Station 81 because during an emergency, all “re“ghters would be in the station. With a generator, there would not be room for them use as living quarters. € Fire Station 86 West Villages Independent District: $250,000 Impact fees collected in West Villages from the city would go to pay for the project. It is unknown if West Villages or the city would build the project, should it get approved. 1,000 people come in a month and many of them are in the West Villages,Ž Titus said. And I cant in good conscience say Lets wait another year, that scares me. I dont feel like were being proactive, I feel like were getting on the 8 ball.Ž € Police Station Renovation: $400,000. Many times we have realized the building North Port budget talks kick off By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER BUDGET | 4The Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee will no longer review rezonings, special exceptions, and variances in order to make a recommendation to the Board of Zoning Appeals. The change to the Charlotte Harbor Community Revitalization Plan was made at the committees meeting Monday. According to Economic Development Director Lucienne Pears, the amendment is part of an ongoing effort to bring consistency to the role and responsibility of CRAs, as well as decreasing county liability. Similar changes are being made to the Murdock Village CRA, she said. Chairman James Herston was initially hesitant to adopt the change. We have no power as an advisory committee, so whats wrong with our advice to the people who have all the power?Ž he asked. Assistant County Attorney Tom David said the problem is that the advice essentially becomes an ex parte communication, in violation of the quasi-judicial process. Quasi-judicial hearings conducted by the Board of Zoning Appeals must be based on competevnt substantial evidence. Applicants are required to have due process and must hear the testimony of any witnesses speaking for or against their request, in order to cross-examine them, should they choose. I think the board appreciates your input but the appropriate process is to do it at the hearing so that everybodys on the same page or in writing or some other way,Ž David said. Committee Member Delmar Wooden said the change made sense to him, as the committees involvement has slowed down projects in the past. It seems appropriate to me that this is where it should have been all along,Ž he said. Pears said the advisory committee will still have a significant amount of influence in writing the code which the Board of Zoning Appeals is responsible for enforcing through its hearing process. Herston and Wooden both voted for the change, while the two other committee members present abstained. Vice Chair Garland Wilson stated he did not believe an action from the advisory committee was actually required as the change will go forward with or without the committees approval. Committee Member Charlotte Ventola felt she needed more context to understand the change. Updates on three county projects were also given by county staff at the meeting Monday: € Art in the Park, a project involving painting and artwork at Live Oak Point, has been postponed indefinitely until the county knows when the hurricane damage repairs will be complete and the park can be reopened. € The Harborwalk project is slightly behind schedule due to weather delays and tide issues. The contractor has been awarded 18 additional contract days, and will begin working Saturdays to catch up. € A contractor for hurricane damage repairs at Live Oak Point and Bayshore Park is expected to be chosen this month after the county receives bids for the project.Email: Charlotte Harbor CRA to no longer hear rezoning, special exception, variance requestsBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS

Early voting came back in a huge way in 2016,Ž said Pasco Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley. But I dont think vote centers are ready for prime time in Florida. Lets give it a test drive and see how it works.Ž Questions persist about whether some counties would have enough big sites with enough parking and that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark, who has aggressively promoted voting by mail for more than a decade, does not support the concept of vote centers. I really dont think it would be an improvement over our current system,Ž Clark said. She said each county needs to decide whats best for its voters. In the survey, counties said the advantages of vote centers include allowing people to vote anywhere and a need for fewer poll workers and sites, which could save money. But one of the biggest disadvantages cited is a potential backlash from voters over the change from traditional neighborhood voting to a new system. Other counties that expressed opposition include Alachua, Brevard, Duval, Leon, Marion, Monroe and Polk. Thirteen states use now vote centers, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The state of Colorado mails ballots to all voters whether they request them or not. Florida supervisors were evenly split (22-22) on whether they liked that idea. Florida requires a minimum of eight days and allows up to 14 days of early voting, ending on the Sunday before election day. Controversy swirled two years ago as Democrats said some counties offered too little early voting. The Legislature would need to approve the idea of vote centers. Cowles said supervisors are inclined to keep the current voting system in place for now and in the 2020 presidential election and may propose vote centers as a pilot project for the next midterm election in 2022.VOTEFROM PAGE 1 without a permit/trappers license.

More information can be found ont feed wildlifeWhen it comes to feeding wildlife, state of“cers prefer to educate “rst-time violators. Its never a good idea to feed wildlife,Ž Klepper cautioned, explaining how feeding wildlife can result in the animals becoming nuisances and potentially dangerous to humans. They can fend for themselves. Give wildlife space and let them be wild.Ž An of“cer did try to dissuade Marie Ross from feeding raccoons on a prior occasion. Of“cers, however, received a call that she continued feeding raccoons. According to reports, an of“cer watched Ross walk to the end of her driveway, looking around as if she was trying to see if anyone was watching. She spotted the of“cer and waved to him, then went back inside her house at the 700 block of Hazel Street. The of“cer drove around the block where he could watch Ross. While waiting for her to return, a large number of raccoons emerged from wooded area across the street from the Ross house. About an hour later, Ross came out and started throwing food out for the raccoons. The of“cer then approached Ross and told her she was going to receive a civil citation for creating a public nuisance by feeding the raccoons. The of“cer contacted a trapper, due to the number of raccoons that became accustomed to eating food at her home, the report states. The raccoons would be destroyed, rather than relocated. Ross said Monday she paid the “ne. I wont ever feed them again,Ž Ross said, but she doesnt know how to keep the raccoons out of her trash cans.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comWILDLIFEFROM PAGE 1 FWC WILDLIFE PENALTIES€ First offense: No criminal penalties, $100 civil fine. € Second offense: A criminal second-degree misdemeanor, up to a $500 fine and 60 days jail sentence. € Third offense: First-degree misdemeanor, up to $1,000 fine and one-year jail sentence. € Fourth offense: Third-degree felony, up to a $5,000 fine and fiveyear jail sentences. More detailed information can be found on that the gas pump panel is closed and doesnt show any signs of tampering. Stations put security seals over the pump panel. If the pump panel is opened, the label is supposed to read void,Ž meaning the machine has been tampered with. Before inserting a credit or debit card, a person can try to wiggle the card reader. If it moves, report it to the attendant and use a different pump. If possible, run the card as a credit card instead of entering a PIN. By doing this, the PIN number is safe and the money isnt deducted immediately from the account. If thats not possible, a person should cover his or her hand when entering the PIN. Some scammers use tiny pinhole cameras to record PIN entries. Also, be sure to monitor any credit card or bank accounts to spot any unauthorized charges. Patrons can also just pay inside to avoid any potential skimmer situation.

Please send emails to Editors note: This story originally appeared in Januarys Sun. Jim Hicks, of Emerald Lake Mobile Home Park in Punta Gorda, was the tail gunner on a B-25, twin-engine attack bomber, part of 81st Squadron, 12th Bombardment Group, 10th Air Force in the China Burma and India Theatre during World War II. He was a staff sergeant in the military. His squadrons primary duty was to provide air support for Merrills Marauders „ a highly regarded American longrange jungle penetration unit. The outfits main accomplishment was capturing the Japanese all-weather air base at Myitkyina, Burma, and destroying enemy troops and communications on the way to the base. Looking back on this military career the 93-year-old local resident recalled, I wanted to be in Naval Aviation, so I joined the Aviation Cadet Program, but I flunked the physical „ I had a heart problem. Then I signed up for the Army Air Corps, lied about my medical condition, and was accepted.Ž After basic training, he attended gunnery school at Buckingham Army Air Field in Fort Myers and graduated in August 1943. From there Hicks went to Columbia, S.C., where he became part of a five-man B-25 bomber crew. After we crewed-up, they loaded us into B-24, four-engine bombers converted into troop transports and were flown to North Africa and then on to Karachi, India. We ended up in a little town called Fenny, India. Fenny was a very crude, rural Indian village. All the buildings were made of bamboo,Ž Hicks said. Our barracks housed 16 to 18 men and it was made of bamboo. It had bamboo floors, sides of bamboo and a thatched roof of bamboo. I flew 27 combat missions but never saw a Japanese plane. Our job was to attack the enemy wherever they were camped in support of Merrills Marauders in Burma,Ž Hicks explained. Our first mission was Christmas Day 1944. Our last mission was sometime in March 1945.Ž The Marauders official designation was the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional) commanded by Brig. Gen. Frank Merrill. He and his battalion marched 800 miles from India through the dense jungle of Burma, over the 29,000-foot Himalayan Mountains and on until they captured the Japanese airfield at Myitkyina that took them four months. Everything they required was carried on the soldiers backs or on the pack animals. By the time their successful incursion into Burma was over, they had fought five engagements with the Japanese 18th Division. Each time they won. Their biggest headache during the time Hicks B-25 squadron provided air support for Merrills Marauders was a bridge over the Prom River in India. I dont know how many times we bombed it. We never did knock it down,Ž he said. For Hicks, It was their last flight „ the one that started in Fenny and took his crew on a bombing run to an enemy airport outside Bangkok, Thailand „ he remembers most. It was the longest flight flown by a B-25 in World War II, he said. His bomber crew was awarded the Air Medal for their efforts during that mission. Most of our crew had no idea where we were going. On our return flight we didnt have enough fuel to reach Fenny. We had to land at an airfield on an island off the coast of Burma the British had just captured.Ž Ill never forget it, our pilot was talking to the tower about landing. The tower told him: Ol boy, theres a C-47 transport plane ahead of you thats about to land. Our pilot replied, You better tell that SOB to get out of my way or Ill shoot him down. The C-47 pilot got out of our way an we landed first. Before we could taxi off the runway we ran out of fuel,Ž Hicks said. Mostly he recalls how dull his service was during the war. When they werent flying a mission, there was little to do. One of his buddies in his bunk that was covered with mosquito netting was reading a book. This guy was sitting in his bed when he heard this plop on the netting above him, but saw nothing. Pretty soon, there was a second plop on the netting and then a third plop. By this time, one of the plops fell on his bunk. It was a cobra about 2 to 3 feet in length. All three plops were snakes about the same size that were living in our barracks thatched roof,Ž he said. So what do you do when you have cobras in your thatched roof? We took everything out of our barracks. Then we lit a match and burned the place down. How else would you get cobras out of your thatched roof?Ž People who lived in the area and worked with the American military rebuilt the barracks. It only took them a day or so to put up another barracks,Ž Hicks said. After we “nished our combat missions in Fenny, we were sent to a base outside Calcutta, India, where we trained to fly A-26 Invader bombers at the end of the war. We were training to skip bomb a Japanese battleship bottled up in the harbor at Singapo re. We were told, if they sent 10 A-26s out to sink the battleship they only expected two of the bombers to return from the mission,Ž Hicks explained. It was early June 1945 and he and his buddies got word the president was going to make an announcement over Armed Forces Radio. We sat around all night playing bridge and waiting for the president to speak. It was 4 a.m (our time) when President Truman came on the air and announced the Japanese were going to surrender. I hadnt cared much for the president up until then. After that announcement I loved him.Ž Hicks sailed home from India to New York City on a troop ship. It took them 31 days to reach the Port of New York. He was discharged from the Air Corps just before Christmas 1945. He took the G.I. Bill and attended a little college in his hometown. At the same time he went to work in a local lumber yard owned by the family of a high school friend. He stayed with the lumber company for nine years until he took a job with a building supply firm where he worked for more than 20 years. After that, he was employed by Sony for 11 more years after the Japanese firm purchased a CBS plant in the area. Hicks and his wife, Harriet, retired and purchased a home in Punta Gorda in 2000. Two years later, it was blown down by Hurricane Charley. The couple moved to Emerald Lakes where they currently live. They have six children: Andy, Chris, Cindy, Ron, Susie and Tom.Punta Gorda man was WWII tail gunner PHOTO PROVIDEDJim Hicks was 19 when this picture was taken.

Yet his admiration for autocratic iron-“sted leaders such as Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Rodrigo Duterte raises red ”ags. His ”agrant assault on the rule of law, delegitimizing institutions that check his power (FBI, media), doing everything for personal advantage, stoking toxic partisanship, and amassing power through the provocation of hate and fear, undermines American democracy. Trump calls politicians of the opposing party treasonousŽ and unAmericanŽ and his opponents enemiesŽ; views all criticism as disloyalty that must be punished; turns Americans against each other; and asks law enforcement to investigate the people who are investigating him. Authoritarian leaders use their justice system to punish enemies and de”ate attention from their own crimes, now the U.S. does, too. We should never assume or hope that the balancing institutionsŽ will suf“ciently contain Trumps authoritarian instincts. The Constitution gives Congress the tools it needs to deal with this situation; instead they give Trump a free pass. However, the Constitution gives ultimate power to you and me to curtail his toxic presidency for the next two years. It is up to voters in 2018 to ful“ll George Washingtons hopes for the resilience of the American system.Teresa Jenkins Punta GordaEditor: David Dunn Rankins column on Presidents Trump and Carter was another challenge to readers to think, maybe to even think differently. He compares Presidents Carter and Trump. My initial reaction was, I dont think so.Ž How could two men be any more different? After all, the New York and southern accents, lifestyles, mannerisms, and history are so diverse as to almost be laughable. But, David is right. For all the superficial differences, there are a couple of important similarities, namely, being successful businessmen elected in defiance of the D.C. establishment and in their desire to change the culture in the swamp. It is good for us to ponder what history has taught us and to consider that these two men share some similar values. It is good for Republicans to think about how their perceptions Editors: Did you know that your mailbox flag is a beacon for mail thieves, mail fraud, identity theft and checkwasher criminals?

That is why an incident last week gave me assurance that the world is still full of wonderful people. While celebrating an event at a local restaurant I read to my husband a communication from the children expressing their sorrow that they could not join in our celebration. Being thousands of miles away their attendance was not possible. When we requested our bill, we were told that a couple had already taken care of the cost of our dinner. We were quite surprised and at that moment it reminded me of the good in people. Thank you Jim and your lovely wife. We have since returned your deed to someone else. Diane Davidson Punta Gorda OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITORSafety first, second and third on the roadwaysOUR POSITION: Floridas pedestrian-safety “gures are awful. Let that be a warning. A. The average weight of a car is 4,079 pounds. B. The average weight of an American man is 191. C. A female, 166. Put a moving A in a collision course with a B or C „ or both B and C together, for that matter „ and it adds up to tragedy. No contest. As recent Page 1 stories in the Sun noted, Florida leads the nation in pedestrian-automobile accidents. Of the worst 12 metro areas in the country, Florida has nine that are ranked the least safest places to walk.Ž Cape CoralFort Myers is the worst, by a long shot, with a danger indexŽ of 283. North PortSarasota-Bradenton ranks 10th with a 149 score. In addition, Florida has had 228 pedestrian fatalities as of May 9, and 48 bicycle fatalities. Close to home, three people „ either on bicycles or walking „ were killed in the past two months in Venice. Three. On May 30, a man on a bicycle was hit by a box truck, in the afternoon, on a relatively lightly traveled street on the island of Venice. Ten days before a 19-year-old pedestrian walking east on U.S. 41 in South Venice was struck and killed by an SUV. The SUV took off. The driver was later arrested for leaving the scene of the accident. In April, a 74-year-old man was struck and killed at 2:15 a.m. on the U.S. 41 bypass in Venice. The driver just drove off. No arrests have been made. Three dead in the space of two months. Heed the warning numbers; be very careful. This is a big state with a large population, and an older population whose drivers may be less nimble (or, perhaps, more careful) than the national norm. The weather is good year-round, so people are outside walking and biking more than they may be in northern states. Vehicular traf“c is heavy, especially in the winter tourist/ snowbird season. Analysts also attribute the sky-high fatality “gures to highly developed urban and suburban sprawl where the concentration is on larger roads with only passing consideration, to pedestrians and cyclists, and little space devoted to their safety. Something is way off. We need more safe spaces for walkers and bicyclists. If nothing else, the statistics inform us that pedestrians, cyclists and motorists must be more aware of one another and pay attention to the rules of the road. Infrastructure is critical, and governments road projects must now include bike lanes and sidewalks. But older roads often lack sidewalks and wide shoulders, and sidewalks are expensive to build. Sarasota County now imposes developer mobilityŽ fees „ rather than the traditional roadŽ fees „ which can be used to fund sidewalks and bike lanes in urban areas where road-widening isnt feasible. Sarasota also has the non-motorized 12.5-mile Legacy Trail, which runs from Venice to the Palmer Ranch area. County voters will decide Nov. 6 whether to fund an extension of the trail to downtown Sarasota and upgrade an off-road trail in North Port. It should help. The city of Venice also has a 10-mile-long biking-hiking trail on both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway. Venice has also undertaken a strong effort in recent years to mark bike lanes on the island, increasingly setting itself aside as a Bicycle-Friendly Community. Punta Gorda has traveled in the bike-friendly direction, too, with a bike-loaner program and other initiatives. Unfortunately, as a recent story by Sun staffer Rusty Pray noted, an effort by Team Punta Gorda and city government to elevate the city to Bicycle-Friendly Community status suffered from what one city of“cial termed bike-lash,Ž push-back from residents either worried about cost or unaware of the safety and recreational bene“ts. Misguided, we believe. One thing all agree on is the need for education and individual awareness of the rules of the road. Like these: Motorists must eliminate distractions. Its easy to drift into the shoulder/bike lane. Most important: Dont text while driving! Pedestrians should walk against with the ”ow of traf“c, cyclists ride with it. Bicycles have a right to a portion of the roadway. Cyclists should stay right as much as practicable, but cars are legally required to give cyclists three feet of clearance. Cyclists must follow rules of the road, including stop signs. The law forbids earbuds for cyclists and motorists. Cyclists may use sidewalks, but pedestrians have the right of way. The situation should improve as Floridas road network improves. Still, follow the rules and proceed as safely as possible. Be alert. Look at our shared paths through the other guys eyes. Walk-cycle-drive accordingly. of Carter might have be unkind, if not simply wrong. And it would be refreshing if todays Democrats could give President Trump credit where it is due. It is important to explore our differences and to look for areas of agreement. Dont we all agree that D.C. is a swamp that needs to be drained?

The Sun /Tuesday, June 5, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINTThis was written by the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board:Tariffs like those the Trump administration is imposing on imports invite trade wars „ in this case, foolishly, with U.S. allies and neighbors. Last Thursdays roll-out of new tariffs on steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico have us baf”ed. One reason: Fridays federal employment report, re”ecting strong May hiring and unemployment at an 18year low of 3.8 percent, speaks to a growing economy that tariffs threaten to undermine. The Tribune has a long record of supporting free markets and opposing trade barriers. Open competition enables a dynamic economy that creates jobs and prosperity; government intrusion, by contrast, rarely leads to ef“ciency. So a federal tariff with repercussions close to home is especially vexing. Trumps Commerce Department has picked a trade “ght with Canada over that countrys newsprint exports to the U.S. That means higher costs to American newspapers. Fortunately, some members of the U.S. Senate want to end this needless confrontation. If you care about the future of newspapers „ as we obviously do „ we hope youll look at the facts and support efforts to resolve the mess. In this particularly odd case, the Commerce Department is helping one U.S. manufacturing “rm at great cost to an entire national industry. The brief background: Commerce Department has added anti-dumping duties of up to 32 percent on newsprint and some other paper products from Canada. The agency says these products bene“t from unfair Canadian government subsidies. U.S. publishers retort that Commerce is misreading the state of the newsprint industry, and using government power to bene“t a single paper mill owner in Washington state. That one mill owner, North Paci“c Paper, had asked Commerce to punish the imports from Canada. No other U.S. newsprint mills supported North Paci“cs claim, according to the News Media Alliance, an industry group. The American newsprint industry is in decline as more Americans read newspapers digital editions. There isnt much of a domestic newsprint industry to protect. Newsprint is also a regional business: Publishers and other users of printed products in the Midwest and East import their newsprint from Canada because there are no longer U.S. mills operating in their regions. And no one is clamoring to invest millions to build new mills on this side of the border. This is an example of trade that was working as it should: Canada, blessed with forests and ef“cient paper producers, selling to an eager American market. But now because of pressure from one “rm, publishers are seeing their costs skyrocket. Jobs are at stake. The U.S. government is collecting duties at the border and newsprint prices in the U.S. are up 20 to 30 percent. But the situation still appears ”uid. The International Trade Commission will conduct a “nal investigation, which will include a public comment period and hearings. Meanwhile, a group of Democratic and Republican senators have introduced legislation that would suspend the tariffs and require Commerce to review the economic health of the American printing and publishing industries. Trumps skeptical, inconsistent views on trade make our heads spin. While claiming to embrace free and fair trade, hes been quick to threaten sanctions in certain industries, even against close trading partners. But hes also pulled back from the brink in some circumstances. In the case of newsprint tariffs, lawmakers have an opportunity to reverse a bad decision. Wed like to see more members of Congress get involved.When a foolish tariff hits close to home Another View Chicago Tribune Roseanne Barrs appeal has so long eluded me that her further fall from disgrace has failed to dislodge even the slightest pebble of pity, though pitiful she is. It seems too facile to call her merely racist, which her recent tweet about former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett plainly establishes. Barr said that Jarrett was the result if the muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby,Ž amusing approximately no one. No, Barr is more than an Ambienenhanced racist; shes what happens when a struggling network (ABC) sells out in a bid to capture Donald Trumps base. If executives had but tuned into Barrs Twitter account sooner, theyd have known she was a Trumpster suffering conspiracy fever. Then again, maybe they did know and didnt care. Ratings, baby, ratings are all that matter. Barr apologized six ways from Sunday. In later tweets, she recalled begging ABC President Ben Sherwood not to cancel the recently resurrected show, saying that she thought Jarrett, who served eight years as a senior adviser to President Obama, was actually white. She added that Jarrett looks like my family!Ž Sure. And did she also think that Jarrett was, what, a Presbyterian and not really a Muslim, as people on the fringeright have long held? No, Barr was obviously tapping into the conspiracy theory that Jarrett, who was born to African-American parents living in Iran, is Muslim „ and the racists persistent belief that blacks are inferior and less evolved than whites. This is such an enduring, dehumanizing trope of racists that it requires no further elucidation. That Barr, whose own knuckles must be raw from strolling the subterranean sewers of her foul dreamscape, should select the ape and the terrorist Brotherhood to represent Jarretts parentage is, in Sherwoods words, egregious and unforgivable.Ž But, the Ambien made her do it! This was one of the explanations Barr offered, as she frantically ri”ed through her primordial psyche in search of a credible excuse. Ambien, an insomnia medicine, may help you sleep, but it doesnt make you a mean, ugly person. Those conditions would be considered pre-existing „ and the Ambien hazeŽ to which Barr referred, a release of the inherent being. As the drugs maker tweeted in a comic line that Barr might study: Racism is not a known side effect of Ambien. The overwhelming condemnation of Barrs remarks via social and other media has proved at least one thing: Racism wont be tolerated in this country ever again. We can infer this because Barr made a similar racist remark in 2013 about then-national security adviser Susan Rice with little disapproval. With her familiar classiness, Barr tweeted that Rice, also African-American, was a man with big swinging ape balls.Ž Who thinks like this? Racists, thats who. Nevertheless, some have leapt to Barrs defense. A joke is a joke, they say, and bad ones shouldnt be showstoppers. Free speech, yall, comes the chorus from quarters where the First Amendment is only selectively admired. Speech is free, all right, but it doesnt mean free from consequences „ and free markets decide what sells. It didnt take guts for ABC to cancel Roseanne,Ž despites its high ratings (see Donald Trumps praise) and its 18 million viewers in the “rst week. It took only a modicum of humanity „ and, of course, the understanding that advertisers and audiences would no longer support the show. Frankly, after Barrs screeching, crotchgrabbing (no wonder she likes Trump) massacre of the national anthem in 1990, as well as anti-Semitic comments and her subsequent remark about Rice, she didnt deserve another shot at Americas laugh track. No doubt, Barrs anguish over about the consequences shared by her cast and co-stars is sincere. But bottom line: There is no excuse. While Barrs tweet about Jarrett may have revealed her darkest thoughts, her attempts to cover herself reveal who and what she is. Inadvertently, the incident also highlighted who Valerie Jarrett is: a strong, intelligent, well-educated, servicedriven, thoughtful, warm and charming woman of historic signi“cance. One hopes that Jarrett, whom I count as a friend, is also impervious to the Barrs of the world. Regrettably, these include the current president, who rose to of“ce on the racist birtherŽ myth about Obamas origins and was elected in spite of a long history of moral turpitude and alleged sexual abuse. On a positive note, Trump and Barr are to be credited with shining a light on Americas underbelly and uniting decent Americans in common cause. Unlike in earlier times when racism or sexism were shouted out, social media and the recent momentum of two relevant movements „ #MeToo and #BLM „ suggest that times are, indeed, changing for good. No excuses. In the meantime, Jarrett ”oats above the fray with grace and dignity, seeking ways to make this a teaching moment, and reminding us of what true leadership looks like.

OUR TOWN: BUSINESS NEWS TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2018 I had the opportunity to meet a very interesting person the other day. His name is Mukesh Patel and he was born in India but moved to Uganda at a very early age. As things happen in many parts of the world, the political climate in Uganda changed rapidly. In the 1970s, Idi Amin came to power, and in the havoc he created, his goons killed Mukeshs father and 300,000 other residents, including many people of Asian heritage. This forced Mukeshs family to move all over Africa to “nd a home. They found one eventually, but it was in England, where he learned the retail trade and how to effectively plan a good way of life. Eventually Mukesh came to the United States and settled in Englewood. That was 34 years ago. He opened a very successful business 15 years ago called Mookeys Bar at 4821 Placida Road in Grove City. They dont serve food at Mookeys, but the pool tables and billiard leagues, the dart boards and dart leagues, 14 big screen televisions, outdoor Tiki hut, and smoking allowedŽ keep the happy patrons coming in to relax and enjoy the atmosphere and just have a good time. I personally know quite a few of the league Pool, darts and a good time: Find it all at Mookeys FIND |5The initial email sent from Lucys iPhone was short and sweet: Are you free at the moment?Ž Judy Schnabel recognized Lucys name and email address as that of a good friend who was out of the country with many friends celebrating her mothers birthday. Of course, she immediately responded. Lucy explained she would have phoned but couldnt receive calls where she was. Lucy asked Judy to purchase $500 worth of iTunes gift cards, then send back pictures of the cards with the codes scratched off. She promised to reimburse her when she returned. The purchase didn't exactly throw out any red ”ag,Ž Judy wrote me. ŽI thought of all sorts of ways she could reward some of her friends with a gift card for their help.Ž However, when the 80-year-old Punta Gorda resident went to the Publix store in the Burnt Store Promenade to buy the gift cards, Publix wouldnt let her. Rather, she was referred to the customer service desk, where she was told this had all the earmarks of a scam. Turns out LucyŽ was an impostor. I say hooray for Publix for looking out for their customers,Ž said Judy. They were looking out for our community.Ž Unfortunately, this type of fraud does take place from time to time,Ž said Publixs Brian West, when I told him Judys story. ŽWeve developed extensive information for our store personnel. The information helps educate them so that they can identify a potential scam, and then inform and warn our customers. Were always pleased when the information we share has helped our associates to help our customers.Ž Not surprisingly, Judy said both women are on Facebook, where scammers can harvest a lot of personal information, including a persons travel whereabouts in real time. Crooks like iTunes cards, since theyre readily available, redeemable online and can easily be sold at a discount. Some 350,000 impostor scam reports were “led with the Federal Trade Commission in 2017. It was, by far, the top category, with $328 million in total losses. If you have a computer or a phone, youve probably been targeted by a scammer pretending to be someone theyre not: maybe the IRS, another government of“cial, a family member or friend, or a tech company,Ž warns the FTC. Publix unmasks impostor scamDAVID | 5During the summer months, when traf“c to your business tends to slow a bit, is a good time to look at some of the pieces of the business that we tend to ignore when things are crazy with customers or clients. For this article Id like to address pricing. As long as revenue is coming in, we sometimes forget to look at our prices. You may be losing customers because of price or you could be leaving money on the table because your prices are too low. Determining the proper prices for your products and services is among the most perplexing issues for any small business owner. It should be simple. You want to be competitive, appeal to customers and also cover your costs and make a reasonable pro“t. When you look at costs, there is more to consider than just Cost of Goods Sold or Cost of Services Provided, there are operating expenses that must be covered as well. Things like payroll and self-employment taxes, fees for accepting credit cards, supplies, utilities, of“ce space, equipment rental, etc. In a service business you need to consider nonbillable hours to make certain there is enough cash at the end of the month to cover all the bills and have some left for you. If you underestimate costs, or overestimate the volume that will be sold, the outcome will be reduced pro“ts or even a loss. Yet even after all those costs are accounted for, a seemingly fair price may not gain traction with customers. The truth is, prices are market-driven, not cost-driven. What matters is if you can make a pro“t at a price the market will bear. Wouldnt it be great if you could read minds? Then youd know exactly what each customer thought of your prices and be able to respond accordingly. So how can a small business owner strike a balance between costs and pro“t, yet still attract customers in these cost-conscious times? This is where a review of your marketing strategy becomes important. Your marketing strategy identi“es customer groups that your business can serve better than your competitors. Armed with demographic information about these people you can create product offerings, prices, distribution, promotional efforts, and services toward them. Your strategy should address the unmet needs of the customer that offer the greatest pro“tability. A good strategy helps a business focus on the target markets it can serve best. Also you have to take into consideration what your competition is charging. You can charge more if what you offer is better or a better value. Thats why a marketing strategy is so critical to small business success. Once youve established your pricing structure SCORE small business talk: Check your business pricesED | 5Name of Business: Forestry Resources Address: 850 N.

The Sugar Bert Boxing National Quali“er ran the gamut from local “ghters to those who came from thousands of miles away. The tournaments depth showcased experienced boxers and featured those who were making their initial entry into the sport. There were others whose lineage would suggest greatness, and those who sought to establish themselves in the quest to become the quintessential warrior. More than 30 championship belts were contested for on Sunday at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, and the collective enthusiasm of the spectators in attendance brought a ravenous excitement, as if they were bearing witness to a series of world title “ghts. For local “ghter Anthony Rose, Sunday was a day for redemption following a lackluster split decision victory, as he knocked out Leven Shiver just before the bell to end the “rst round, to win the 201-pound title. I got my sleep,Ž said Rose. We were rested and not running around all over the place. I used my height and my reach and caught him walking in. I waited to see if I had to come in on him or if he would on me.Ž While it was Roses fourth career belt, he said its all a means to an end, with his primary obejctive to transition into the professional ranks. Its a nice achievement, but I want to go for pro and get the real belts,Ž Rose said. The tournaments most recognizable name, Evan Holy“eld, son of former heavyweight champion Evander Holy“eld, didnt have such an easy time as he tangled with Isiah Decent in perhaps the most thrilling bout of the day. Many of the fans went over to see the “ght as both boxers fought relentlessly, exchanging explosive blows, before Holy“eld won a split decision over his opponent. I think my name puts a chip on peoples shoulders and (they want to) prove themselves by saying they knocked out a Holy“eld,Ž Holy“eld said. That makes me train harder and (wanting to) prove those people wrong.Ž More than 30 states were represented at the championships, with both genders having a presence at the tournament. Jaquana Logan, 21, of Virginia, came to Punta Gorda with the objective of winning a belt in her ring debut. And while she won, the bout proved to be an invaluable educational experience. I came in thinking I was in shape and that I had the match won, but when I came in the ring, I had a good “rst round, but soon learned my biggest opponent was myself,Ž said Logan, who comes from a family of boxers. I got tired and had to keep going.Ž However, Florida “ghters proved to be a tough bunch. One was Raycel Blanco of Marco Island, who won in the 125-pound novice division. I was looking for the knockout too quickly and I had to shorten up my punches,Ž said Blanco, whose record improved to 7-1 with the win. I need to work on that.Ž Adrian Vazquez, 9, of Hollywood, won his second belt with a decision over Ruben Soto, a champion in his own right. And like many other boxers, Vasquez found team sports not to his liking. Im not good with team sports, but when its just me and another opponent, Im good because in team sports I would get mad,Ž Vazquez said. Its my second time “ghting him and I beat him both times.Ž Sugar Bert Wells said this weekend was a great experience and hopes that with the tournament returning for two more years to Charlotte County, it will grab even more attention from locals and “ghters. We had boxers who came from all over the country,Ž said Wells. This is the highest level of boxing for the Olympic team, thats the kind of event we provide. Florida has been great to these boxers and its been a great event.ŽTournaments Depth Matches Talent By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT SUGAR BERT BOXING: BOXING NATIONAL QUALIFIER Frank Diaz, left, lands a punch against Eric Tudor during their bout Sunday at the Sugar Bert Boxing National Qualier 2018 at Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center.

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, OR PREVENTANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY. Raymond Wilson The Associated Heath Press AHP Š A recent breakthrough stands to help millions of Americans plagued by burning, tingling and numb legs and feet. But this time it comes in the form of a cream, not a pill, suggesting the medical community may have been going about the problem all wrong. The breakthrough, called Diabasens is a new relief cream developed for managing the relentless discomfort caused by neuropathy. When applied directly to the legs and feet, it causes arteries and blood vessels to expand, increasing the ” ow of warm, nutrient rich blood to damaged tissue. However, w hats most remarkable about the cream...and what makes it so that it contains one of the only natural substances known to activate a special sensory pathway right below the surface of the skin. This pathway is called TRAP1 and it controls the sensitivity of nerves. In laymen terms, it determines whether you feel pins and needles or soothing relief. Studies show that symptoms of neuropathy arise when the nerves in your legs deteriorate and blood ” ow is lost to the areas which surround them. As the nerves begins to die, sensation is lost. This lack of sensation is what causes the feelings of burning, tingling and numbness. This is why the makers of Diabasens say their cream has performed so well in a recent clinical use survey trial. It increases sensation and blood ” ow where ever its applied. No Pills, No Prescriptions, No AgonyUntil now, many doctors have failed to consider a topical cream as an effective way to manage neuropathy. Diabasens is proving it may be the only way going forward. Most of todays treatment methods have focused on minimizing discomfort instead of attacking its underlining cause. Thats why millions of adults are still in excruciating pain every single day, and are constantly dealing with side effectsŽ explains Dr. Esber, the creator of Diabasens  Diabasens is different. Since the most commonly reported symptoms Š burning, tingling and numb legs and feet Š are caused by lack of sensation of the nerves, weve designed the formula increase their sensitivity. And since these nerves are located right below the skin, weve chosen to formulate it as a cream. This allows for the ingredients to get to them faster and without any drug like side effectsŽ he adds.Study Finds Restoring Sensation the Key To Effective, Long Lasting ReliefWith the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Diabasens nationwide. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men and women from all over the country are eager to get their hands on the new cream and, according to the results initial users reported, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, participants taking Diabasens saw a staggering 51% increase sensitivity in just one week. This resulted in signi“ cant relief from burning, tingling and numbness throughout their legs.

(My father also suffered from this pain and itching. I wish I would have had this for him.) The “ rst time I used the cream, I felt an almost immediate relief from this. I nowuseit at least twice a day: once in the morning before work and once at night before I sleep. I am so delighted with this. It has helped my walking, also. It has helped generate feeling again in my feet,Ž raves Marsha A. from TexasTargets Nerve Damage Right Below the Skins SurfaceDiabasens is a topical cream that is to be applied to your legs and feet twice a day for the “ rst two weeks then once a day after. It does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is a compound known as cinnamaldehyde. Studies show that neuropathy and nerve pain is caused when the peripheral nerves breakdown and blood is unable to circulate into your legs and feet. As these nerves deteriorate, sensation is lost. This is why you may not feel hot or cold and your legs and feet may burn, tingle and go numb. Additionally, without proper blood ” ow, tissues and cells in these areas begin to die, causing unbearable pain. The cinnamaldehyde in Diabasens is one of the only compounds in existence that can activate TRPA1, a special sensory pathway that runs through your entire body. According to research, activating this pathway (which can only be done with a cream) increases the sensitivity of nerves, relieving feelings of tingling and numbness in your legs and feet. Supporting ingredients boost blood ” ow, supplying the nerves with the nutrients they need for increased sensation. Amazing Relief Exactly Where You Need ItWith daily use, Diabasens users report remarkable improvements in their quality of life without of the negative side effects or interactions associated with prescription drugs.

Could you please tell us the difference between entitlement spending and discretionary spending? Could you give us examples? Also, could you explain the difference between our national debt and our de“cit? Please try to do this without using complicated economic terminology so we dont have to run to the dictionary. This is for an investment club discussion. „ BA, Rochester, Minn. Dear BA: Entitlement spending is government-spent funds that cant be changed without violating the rights of the individuals who claim the funds. We call certain things entitlementsŽ because individuals have satis“ed eligibility requirements set by Congress and are entitledŽ to federal government bene“ts. And thanks to the beclowning of Congress, those bene“ts always exceed their planned cost. In 2017, our entitlement spending included Social Security ($945 billion), Medicare ($597 billion), Medicaid ($705 billion) and welfare ($444 billion). This totals $2.7 trillion. If our beclowned Congress reduced this spending, it would be political suicide. So were morphing into a nanny state because an increasing number of citizens lack the skill sets to provide for themselves. Its become a fait accompli; technology has advanced to the point at which a growing number of Americans are intellectually ill-equipped to participate in a fast-changing economy. Their earnings capacity will not allow them to buy a home, attend college, save for retirement or pay for health care. They cant be responsible for themselves. Therefore, the government must become responsible for them. Thats why more and more of the money the federal government spends ($4.1 trillion in 2017) is being consigned to support this growing nanny state. Sadly, many Americans produce less than they consume. And those people must work at reducing their numbers. Now, after subtracting $2.7 trillion of entitlement spending from the total $4.1 trillion spent in 2017, the remaining $1.4 trillion is called discretionary spending. Heres what we get for $1.4 trillion. We get the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps and the Air Force. Then we get government agencies, such as the SEC, the EPA, the ATF, NASA, the VA, the CBO, the SBA, the CFTC, HHS, the DOT, the DOJ, the BLM, FEMA, HUD, the CIA, the FBI, the IRS, the NLRB, TSA, the NTSB, ICE, the NRC, the OMB, the DOL, the Secret Service, Homeland Security and the Library of Congress. This list could continue for pages. It reads like a Boston phone directory. And Americans are getting one heck of a real bargain. As I said, the federal government spent $4.1 trillion on stuff and things last year. But it collected only $3.6 trillion in taxes. The difference was $500 billion, and thats the de“cit. The de“cit is the amount of money the government borrows (selling Treasurys) to cover the difference between the amount of money it spent in a budget year and the taxes it collected. And all those annual de“cits added up since the beginning of the republic make up the national debt. When George H.W. Bush was president in 1990, the national debt was only $3 trillion. When Barack Obama was elected in 2008, the national debt was $10 trillion. By December 2009, de“cit spending had grown to $2 trillion, and the national debt had risen to $12 trillion. In 2010, de“cit spending declined to $1.5 trillion, and the national debt was $13.5 trillion. In 2011, de“cit spending declined to $1.2 trillion, and the accumulated national debt stood at $14.7 trillion. In 2012, the end of Obamas “rst term, de“cit spending totaled $1.2 trillion, and the national debt stood at $15.9 trillion. During Obamas next term, the national debt reached $20 trillion. So in 2017, for the “rst time since the Lord made little green apples, the national debt exceeded our $19.3 trillion gross national product. In 2017, we paid over $470 billion in interest on our debt, and interest rates are headed higher. And thats very scary. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O.

Hes 16, and he has a part-time job and a hand-me-down car. Is this a realistic idea? „ Mike Dear Mike, Your son is at a great point in life to learn how to make money behave. Even in his situation, when hes still living at home, there are plenty of things he can include in a budget. Theres gas for his car, along with maintenance and insurance. Hell need to save a little money „ maybe even for college „ and Im sure hell want some spending cash, too. Sit down, and teach him how to make a written budget by “guring out the upcoming months income and expenses ahead of time. Also, make sure he knows how to properly balance and reconcile his bank account. Its still your responsibility to provide him with the basic necessities at this point. But I love your willingness to teach your son how to handle money intelligently. The sooner he learns some basic money management principles, the sooner hell be able to handle his “nances responsibly in the real world! „ DaveControlling your cashDear Dave, I work long hours, and I make pretty good money. The problem is the money from my paychecks always seems to disappear before the end of the month. I know part of the problem is grabbing quick meals between extra shifts, and eating out a lot after work, because Im usually too tired to cook when I get home. How can someone who has very little free time start gaining control of their “nances? „ Sheila Dear Sheila, No matter how little free time you think you have, or how tired you are, you must make time do a written budget every month. This is essential. Making a budget for the month ahead isnt a lot of hard work, and it really doesnt take long. When you give every dollar a name before the month begins, youre taking control of your money instead of allowing a lack of it to control you. Start with the income you know is predictable. If that isnt possible, look back over the last few months and “nd the minimum amount you brought home during a month over that period of time. This will be the basis for your budget. Once youve established a baseline income, you can write down and prioritize bills and other expenses. Just remember, restaurants are not a priority! When you make a prioritized spending plan, and start telling your money what to do ahead of time, youll have the ability to do whats important with what youve earned! „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Page 14 E/N/C The Sun / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 6OUR TOWN STATE NEWSTALLAHASSEE „ Floridians who are eligible to receive medical marijuana will still have to wait a long time to access smokable products if a judge lifts a stay. An attorney representing the states Department of Health said Monday that even if smokable medical marijuana was made legal, it would not be immediately available. Assistant Attorney General Karen Brodeen said it would take several months for the department to make rules and for medical marijuana treatment centers to stock the product. Leon County circuit court Judge Karen Gievers heard testimony Monday on a motion that would vacate a stay on a May 25 ruling that said a provision banning smokable cannabis was unconstitutional. The state immediately “led an appeal which led to an automatic stay against the rulings implementation. John Morgans People United for Medical Marijuana and two patients with terminal illnesses appealed the stay. Jon Mills, who represents the plaintiffs, said if the stay is vacated, then the Department of Health should get to work on creating rules even if further litigation continues.Theres no excuse for delay at this point,Ž he said. We have tens of thousands of people in Florida who could bene“t. We need to expedite it as much as possible.Ž Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment in November 2016 allowing the use of medical marijuana, which left it up to the Legislature to approve enacting laws. Orlando attorney John Morgan, who was the guiding force behind the amendment, has noted that a statement of intentŽ shared with the public before voters approved the constitutional amendment made it clear that smokable marijuana wouldnt be used in public.Ž He also added we said very clearly that if its not allowed in public, it is allowed in private.Ž Morgans People United for Medical Marijuana “led a lawsuit last July, less than a month after the Florida Legislature last year banned smokable medical marijuana due to health risks. The state has argued that the Department of Health and Legislature have a role in regulating public health and that the smoking ban addresses reasonable health and safety concerns. Gievers wrote in her 22-page ruling that the ability to smoke medical marijuana was implied in the amendments language and is a protectable right when used in private places. Gievers said she would decide on the stay as quickly as possible.Ž If she does rule to vacate, she could put a seven-day delay in place so that the Department of Health could start coming up with rules for treatment centers to cultivate and sell smokable pot. The state would likely appeal to the states 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. It will be the second medical marijuana case that court will be taking up after Gievers ruled last month that a Tampa man „ Joseph Redner „ is entitled under state law to possess, grow and use marijuana for juicing. Redner was prescribed juicing treatments from his doctor to prevent a relapse of stage 4 lung cancer. The stay on that ruling remains in place. Mills said this case is different because the smoking ban applies to everyone.Judge considers lifting stay on smokable medical marijuanaBy JOE REEDYASSOCIATED PRESS SUNRISE „ The surprise commencement speaker at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people in February was Jimmy Fallon, who said he wanted to thank the students personally for their courage and bravery. Most commencement speakers get up and talk in future tense: You will succeed. You will make us proud, you will change the world, the Tonight ShowŽ host said. But Im not going to say that, because youre not the future. Youre the present. ... You are succeeding, you are making us proud.Ž Fallon joked about his own less-than-stellar high school performance „ it took having to go to summer school to “nd my people,Ž he said „ before telling the students that theyve already proven how setbacks can change us in ways we dont expect, and make us better, and stronger.Ž You guys have already proved that to everyone. You took something horri“c and instead of letting it stop you, you started a movement. Not just here in Florida and not just in America, but throughout the whole world,Ž he said. That was you, choosing to take something awful and using it to make a change. That was you, choosing hope over fear.Ž Keep making good choices,Ž he added. Im not saying that because you need to learn it; Im saying it because youve already taught it to all of us.Ž Graduate Shannon Recor said afterward that Fallon made us laugh and cry.Ž He brought a positive energy „ Im glad he came,Ž Recor said. Four families received diplomas on behalf of the seniors killed in the attack that gave rise to the March for our LivesŽ movement for gun control: Nicholas Dworet, Joaquin Oliver, Meadow Pollack and Carmen Schentrup.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubios of“ce on Monday announced the U.S. Election Assistance Commission had approved the grant request. The commission wrote a TALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Billionaire Jeff Greene is jumping into Floridas governors race, joining the already crowded Democratic primary. Its not the “rst political run for Palm Beach real estate developer, who lost a U.S. Senate primary eight years ago despite spending $30 million of his own money. | HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE TALLAHASSEE „ When Florida lawmakers began clearing a backlog of payments to victims and families harmed by government actions, their explanation for the dramatic shift was that it was their duty to abide by court rulings for the injured. What wasnt said was that, of the $37.5 million in claims bills approved over the past two years, $16.9 million „ nearly half „ was awarded to victims represented by a lobbyist who is the brother of Floridas outgoing Republican House speaker, Richard Corcoran. Of the roughly 100 bills “led in the House and Senate during the 2017 and 2018 legislative sessions, 21 were approved „ and eight of those 21 were represented by Michael Corcorans “rm, Corcoran and Johnston. Altogether, the “rm submitted 19 claims, giving it a 42 percent success rate. Lobbying records show the Corcoran “rm collected at least $89,000 in fees last year for its work on claims bills and is in line to receive tens of thousands more this year. The success of the well-connected lobbying “rm in winning approval for claims bills adds to a persistent debate among legislators as to who does „ and doesnt „ get paid. Michael Corcoran didnt return a phone call requesting comment. Richard Corcoran didnt respond directly to questions about his brothers lobbying efforts, but said he was a “rm believer that legislators should approve claims bills. Claims bills are needed when someone sues state and local governments and a jury approves a payment above the caps enshrined in the states sovereignimmunity law. The law says state and local government cannot pay more than $200,000 to an individual or $300,000 overall. But some Republicans in the past openly complained that lobbyists held too much sway in deciding which bills were approved. During the 2013 and 2014 sessions, legislators didnt approve a single claims bill, in part due to opposition by then-Senate President Don Gaetz, who said it seemed bills were passing based not on their substance, but the effectiveness of the lobbyists behind them. Rep. Jay Fant, a Jacksonville Republican and attorney, consistently votes against claims bills because of what he calls a ”awed process. The way it is applied is just terribly imperfect,Ž Fant said. Rep. Cord Byrd, a Jacksonville Republican and an attorney, sponsored two claims bills during the 2018 session that didnt pass „ and he blamed lobbyists for their failure. One bill would have authorized Volusia County to pay nearly $2 million to a Kansas woman who was injured and dis“gured after she was run over by a county-operated truck while sunbathing on Daytona Beach. The bill was opposed by an insurer that covered the county. The insurer was represented by a lobbyist. We dont have a consistent process,Ž Byrd said. Its cheaper to hire a lobbyist to go in year in and year out and kill a local claims bill than pay it out.Ž Fant, whos running for attorney general, said that if Florida is going to waive its sovereign immunity caps, it should have a codi“ed, egalitarian process that doesnt rely on who has the best lobbyist. This is something we should “x from a public policy standpoint,Ž Fant said. I think we can do better in Florida.ŽBehind Floridas payments to victims, links to lobbyistsBy GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSGreene, who “led his latest paperwork on Friday, lost by a landslide in 2010 to then-Rep.

The News Wire Tuesday, June 5, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Melania Trump appears for 1st time in 3 weeksSee page 2. LOS ANGELES „ Associated Press Hollywood reporter Bob Thomas was on a one-night political assignment in June 1968 to cover Sen. Robert F. Kennedys victory in the California presidential primary when mayhem unfolded before his eyes. He heard pops of gun“re, then screams, and quickly rushed into the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel to see what was happening. People stood in a circle, staring down at the concrete ”oor in shock. Thomas jumped up on a stack of kitchen trays and saw Kennedy on the ”oor, blood oozing from his head. Thomas sprinted into the press room to “nd an open phone line to call in the story to his editors. The line was dead, so he tried again at a phone booth in the lobby and reached editor Bob Myers. Ive got a ”ash. Kennedy shot,Ž Thomas said. Are you serious?Ž Myers responded. Im serious. Kennedys been shot,Ž Thomas said. Within moments, AP bulletins and story updates were transmitted to newspapers and TV and radio stations around the country, informing the world that Kennedy had been shot. The AP “led numerous takes to the wire that night „ the story broke just after midnight Los Angeles time „ and did the same the next day when Kennedy succumbed to his wounds and the story became an obituary for the 42-year-old senator just “ve years after his brother was assassinated.Here is some of the APs coverage surrounding the assassination:LOS ANGELES (AP) „ Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, brother of the assassinated President John F. Kennedy, was shot in the brain early today just after he claimed victory in the California primary that he felt was the key to his own bid for the presidency. Mayor Sam Yorty and Police Chief Tom Reddin told a news conference How the AP covered the RFK assassination 50 years agoTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Former President Bill Clinton says the #MeToo movement is overdue. Just dont ask him about Monica Lewinsky. In an interview with NBCs Today ShowŽ released Monday, Clinton bristled at questions over whether he should have resigned 20 years ago over his sexual relationship with the White House intern and whether the #MeToo movement has changed his perspective. At the same time, the former Democratic president claimed credit for empowering women in his orbit and disputed that he might owe Lewinsky a private apology, insisting his public televised apology was adequate. Lewinsky wrote in March that their relationship was not sexual assaultŽ but constituted a gross abuse of power.Ž I dealt with it 20 years ago, plus,Ž said Clinton. And the American people, twothirds of them stayed with me. And Ive tried to do a good job since then, and with my life and with my work. Thats all I have to say.Ž Clinton is promoting his new “ctional thriller, The President Is Missing,Ž with best-selling author James Patterson. In clips released from the interview, Clinton was at times both vague and combative in his answers, repeatedly blaming his critics and even the NBC interviewer for omitting factsŽ by trying to lump him in with other men who have abused their positions of power to leverage sexual relationships. Clinton said he was right not to resign. And while he said he supports the #MeToo movement, I still have questions about some of the decisions which have been made.Ž Clinton said he doesnt think President Donald Trump has gotten a free pass, Bill Clinton bristles at questions on Lewinsky, #MeTooBy ANNE FLAHERTYASSOCIATED PRESSEL RODEO, Guatemala „ Rescuers pulled survivors and bodies Monday from the charred aftermath of the powerful eruption of Guatemalas Volcano of Fire, as the death toll rose to 62 and was expected to go higher from a disaster that caught residents of remote mountain hamlets off guard, with little or no time to ”ee to safety. Using shovels and backhoes, emergency workers dug through the debris and mud, perilous labor on smoldering terrain still hot enough to melt shoe soles a day after the volcano exploded in a hail of ash, smoke and molten rock. Bodies were so thickly coated with ash that they looked like statues, and rescuers were forced to use sledgehammers to break through the roofs of houses buried in debris up to their roo”ines to try to see if anyone was trapped inside. Fanuel Garcia, director of the National Institute of Forensic Sciences, said 62 bodies had been recovered and 13 of those had been identi“ed. It is very dif“cult for us to identify them because some of the dead lost their features or their “ngerprintsŽ from the red-hot ”ows, Garcia said. We are going to have to resort to other methods ... and if possible take DNA samples to identify them.Ž Hilda Lopez said her mother and sister were still missing after the slurry of hot gas, ash and rock roared into her village of San Miguel Los Lotes, just below the mountains ”anks. We were at a party, celebrating the birth of a baby, when one of the neighbors shouted at us to come out and see the lava that was coming,Ž the distraught woman said. We didnt believe it, and when we went out the hot mud was already coming down the street.Ž My mother was stuck there, she couldnt get out,Ž said Lopez, weeping and holding her face in her hands. Her husband, Joel Gonzalez, said his father had also been unable to escape and was believed to be buried back there, at the house.Ž Guatemalan authorities say they had been closely monitoring the Volcano of Fire, one of Central Americas most active, after activity picked up around 6 a.m. Sunday. The volcano has registered a number of minor eruptions over the years, and no evacuations were ordered as scienti“c experts reported the activity was decreasing. Guatemalas disaster agency, Conred, issued a number of standard precautions, advising people to wear protective face masks, clean their rooftops of ash once the eruption was over and cover any food and water intended for human consumption. It also said to heed any recommendations from authorities. Guatemala Citys international airport was closed due to the danger to planes. Conred spokesman David de Leon said that around 2 p.m. the volcano registered a new, more WASHINGTON „ The Supreme Court ruled narrowly Monday for a Christian baker who refused to make a same-sex wedding cake, deciding that he was a victim of religious bias on the part of the states civil rights commission. But the 7-2 ruling, written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, stressed the importance of maintaining equal rights for gays and lesbians. The exercise of their freedoms on terms equal to others must be given great weight and respect by the courts,Ž wrote Kennedy, who has penned several decisions upholding the rights of gays and lesbians. He cautioned that law does not allow business owners and other actors in the economy and in society to deny protected persons equal access to goods and services under a neutral and generally applicable public accommodations law.Ž But in this case, Kennedy said, the Colorado civil rights commission displayed hostilityŽ to Jack Phillips, the owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop. Kennedy cited comments by a member of the state commission who had said that religion was often used a basis for bigotry. Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen G. Breyer joined with their more conservative colleagues to form the majority. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case has been widely seen as a clash between religious liberties and gay rights. It also re”ected a conservative backlash against the Supreme Courts ruling in 2015 holding that samesex couples had a constitutional right to marry in all states. But Kennedy and the court chose the narrowest possible way to resolve the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The justices did not say that store owners like Phillips had a right to an exemption from the states civil rights law based on their sincere religious beliefs.

Sen. Jeff Merkleys attempt late Sunday to enter the facility, and his request to speak to a manager, comes amid a national debate over the practice of separating families caught crossing the border illegally. The children are being held in Brownsville, a city along the Mexican border, said Merkley, a Democrat from Oregon who livestreamed his arrival there on Facebook. He said no member of Congress has visited the facility, and that because U.S. citizens were “nancing it, he and the press should be able to see what conditions are like inside. The facility, run by a contractor, is in a former Walmart with blacked-out windows. Every American citizen has a stake in how these children are being treated and how this policy is being enacted,Ž Merkley said. He said a new policy is ripping awayŽ children from immigrant families who have entered the country illegally or are seeking asylum here. A supervisor, who “nally emerged from the building, told Merkley he was not allowed to make any statements. He gave the senator a phone number of the public affairs of“ce in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Washington. Meanwhile, Brownsville police had shown up. One asked Merkley for his name and birth date. Merkley provided the information, and then tried to explain to the of“cer why he had come to the facility. The children who were previously kept with their families, under a new policy just implemented by the attorney general, are being separated from their families and warehoused here,Ž Merkley told the police of“cer. And the attorney generals team, and the Of“ce of Refugee Resettlement, they dont want anyone to know about whats going on behind these doors.Ž Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced a new zero-tolerance policyŽ in which it will press criminal charges against all people crossing the border illegally, even if they have few or no previous offenses. More children are expected to be separated from their parents as a result. It was out of concerns for the safety, security and dignity of the childrenŽ that the senator was barred entry into the Brownsville facility, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families said in an email. A statement from Victoria Palmer said theres a processŽ to enter such a facility he should follow to make headway on this important issue, rather than just headlines.Ž The Department of Health and Human Services says it operates over 100 shelters in some 17 states, and that children spend an average of 51 days in them.Senator refused entry to facility holding migrants kidsBy ANDREW SELSKYASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) „ First lady Melania Trump has attended a White House event honoring Gold Star families in her “rst appearance in more than three weeks after a kidney procedure.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) „ Authorities in Virginia and North Carolina are searching for a convicted sex offender who kidnapped his 7-monthold daughter from her mother at knifepoint, police said Monday. Police in Danville, Virginia, said Emma Grace Kennedy was taken by her father, 51-year-old Carl Ray Kennedy, at a Kwik Stop. The gas station is about three hours southwest of Richmond on the North Carolina border. Virginia State Police issued an Amber Alert and said the infant is believed to be in extreme danger.Ž Danville police Lt. Michael Wallace declined to release the name of the girls 32-year-old mother. Authorities said Carl Kennedy is registered as a sex offender in Asheboro, which is 30 minutes south of Greensboro, North Carolina. Hes currently out of jail on a $250,000 bond on a drug distribution charge. North Carolina incarceration records show Kennedy was convicted in 2014 on a felony charge of strangulation and a charge of misdemeanor sexual battery. Kennedy is described in the police alert as a white man with gray hair, 5 foot 8 inches, weighing 170 pounds, last seen driving a gold 4-door Suzuki, with the North Carolina tag FAA-1873 or EKZ 5093. Police said he has tattoos of skulls on his forearms, an eye on the back of his right hand, a pit bull with American bulldogŽ written under it on his upper right arm, and a wizard on his upper left arm. Emma, the alert said, was last seen in a light blue onesie.Amber Alert: 7-month-old abducted by registered sex offender EMMA GRACE WASHINGTON „ The U.S. campaign to economically isolate North Korea will continue, the White House press secretary said Monday, even as preparations advance for President Donald Trumps summit next week with Kim Jong Un. The White House set a time for Trumps “rst meeting with Kim: 9 a.m. Singapore time on June 12, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. But she said there has been no change in what Trump has described as a maximum pressureŽ campaign on the North Korean regime. Trump said last week hed avoid using the phrase because of improving relations between the two countries. I dont want to use that term because were getting along,Ž he said on Friday. Our policy hasnt changed, and as the president stated, we have sanctions on, theyre very powerful and we would not take those sanctions off unless North Korea denuclearized,Ž Sanders said on Monday. Trump aims to persuade the North Korean dictator to give up his countrys nuclear arsenal in exchange for relief from U.S. economic sanctions. Hes promised American investment in the under-developed country would follow. The White House has been tight-lipped about Trumps preparations for the summit. He spent the weekend at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, with some of his family. The president has been receiving daily brie“ngs on North Korea from his national security team,Ž Sanders said.US pressure on Kim to continue as time set for summitBy JENNIFER JACOBS and JUSTIN SINKBLOOMBERG NEWS NATIONAL NEWS/WEATHER


The Sun /Tuesday, June 5, 2018 Page 3 MOSCOW (AP) „ President Vladimir Putin ridiculed the U.S. indictment of 13 Russians in a television interview broadcast Monday, scof“ng at the notion that a person described as his chef could interfere with a U.S. presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller in February charged Yevgeny Prigozhin, a wealthy businessman dubbed Putins chef,Ž and 12 others in an alleged conspiracy to meddle in the 2016 election. Putin dismissed the charges as ridiculousŽ during an interview with Austrian public broadcaster ORF broadcast late Monday. How low the Western information and political environment has fallen if a restaurateur from Russia could in”uence elections in the United States or a European country,Ž the Russia leader said. The 13 people indicted are accused of an elaborate plot to disrupt the U.S. election that allegedly included running a huge social media campaign from their headquarters in St. Petersburg, dubbed the troll farm.Ž Prigozhin has been dubbed Putins chefŽ by Russian media because his restaurants and catering businesses have hosted the Kremlin leaders dinners with foreign dignitaries. Putin told ORF that the Russian government has no connection to Prigozhins activities. When pressed further, he pointed to HungarianAmerican “nancier and philanthropist George Soros, alleging that Soros meddles in the affairs of various nations while our American friends often tell me that America has nothing to do with it.Ž Ask the (U.S.) Department of State why he does it,Ž Putin said. The Department of State would tell you that it has no relation to that, its Mr. Soros private business. Well, here its Mr. Prigozhins private business.Ž Asked about his interactions with U.S. President Donald Trump, Putin said political in“ghting in Washington was hampering their contacts. In a phone call to Putin in March, Trump proposed their holding a summit. U.S. and Russian of“cials havent discussed speci“cs yet. In my view, its a result of the acute political struggle continuing in the U.S.,Ž Putin said. He emphasized that his meeting with Trump would be important as an opportunity to discuss arms control and preventing a new arms race.Putin scoffs at US indictment of Russians US says airstrike in Somalia kills 27 al-Shabab extremists Cubas new president meets with US senator, Google exec UK police agency puts cost of ex-spy attack at $10 million Greek economy grows for fifth straight quarter Italy mayor halts school lunch after suspect food poisoning Mexican court orders new investigation into missing studentsMOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) „ The U.S. military says it has carried out an airstrike in northern Somalia that killed 27 al-Shabab extremists. The statement issued Monday by the U.S. Africa command said it assesses that no civilians were killed in the attack on Sunday about 26 miles southwest of Bosasso, the commercial capital of the semiautonomous Puntland state. The area has recently seen attacks on local forces by extremists aligned with the Islamic State group. The Trump administration approved expanded military operations against extremists in Somalia, including alShabab, which is linked to al-Qaida and was blamed for the truck bombing in Mogadishu in October that killed more than 500 people.

The Wiltshire Police force, which serves the English city of Salisbury, reported Monday that it has spent about 7.5 million pounds ($10 million) dealing with the aftermath of the March 4 attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. Chief Constable Angus Macpherson says his department wouldnt have been able to handle the crisis without the 1,230 outside of“cers who staffed cordons throughout the city. Macpherson says the of“cers no longer are needed because some decontaminated sites are being turned over to their owners and private security guards are being stationed at the remaining locations. ATHENS, Greece (AP) „ Greeces economy has grown for a “fth consecutive quarter, keeping the countrys recovery on target as eight years of international bailout programs are due to end in August. The Greek Statistical Authority said Monday that the economy grew 2.3 percent in JanuaryMarch compared to the same period a year earlier. The growth from the previous quarter was 0.8 percent. The government is negotiating the terms of its bailout exit with eurozone rescue lenders, and parliament is expected to approve a “nal major round of administrative and cost cutting reforms next week. The planned cuts triggered a 24-hour general strike last week. After the August exit, the government is seeking a full return to bond markets, but Greeces top central banker renewed a support for a more gradual approach with a precautionary credit line from bailout lenders.

The court in the northern state of Tamaulipas says accusations that suspects were tortured to give confessions make it necessary to conduct a new investigation. In a statement Monday, the court called for the creation of an Investigation Commission for Truth and Justice. The commission would be made up of victims representatives, the National Human Rights Commission and federal prosecutors. In September 2014, 43 students at a teachers college disappeared in the town of Iguala in the southern state of Guerrero.

The Sun /Tuesday, June 5, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Yesterdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 69-year-old male who suered an attack of Guillain-Barre syndrome in 1973. I have residual neurological and muscular damage, but otherwise I am in excellent health. I have declined the u shot up to this point, based on the recommendation of my doctor and the advice given at sites where u shots are oered. I have always questioned this advice. Caught between the Scylla of risking a recurrence of Guillain-Barre and the Charybdis of dying of the u, it seems to me that Scylla is the better bet. „ P.B. ANSWER: Guillain-Barre syndrome is an immune-mediated neurological disease causing paralysis, usually as a result of an infection. It's thought that the infection tricks the body into thinking that part of your body is an invader that needs to be destroyed. In the case of GBS, it's the nerve cell „ or the myelin, a protein that protects and insulates the cells „ that is the target of the immune system. Although people have developed GBS after vaccination, the risk is very low (unlikely to be more than 2 per million), and some studies have suggested that there is no increase in risk following vaccination. However, many experts recommend against inuenza vaccination in those people who developed GBS within six weeks of getting the vaccine. Odysseus tried to sail exactly between Scylla (a six-headed monster) and Charybdis (a whirlpool), but you can't go between „ you must choose whether or not to get the vaccine. Here's what studies have shown: Among 107 people who chose to get the vaccine after having had GBS, none had a recurrence of GBS. Another study with 279 patients also showed zero episodes of recurrent GBS. This does not mean there is no risk, but the risk probably is very low. Getting the u vaccine (partially) protects you from dying of the u, but the absolute reduction in death rate is small. In older people, perhaps a single vaccinated person is saved per 200-300; other estimates are not that high. It's very dicult to make a decision about competing low-risk events. You probably will be ne either way. Given a more likely benet of vaccination against only a lesser possibility of harm from GBS would argue for getting the vaccine; however, this remains controversial. DEAR DR. ROACH: While stationed in the U.S. in 1967, I volunteered for a "study" in which an amount of my blood was collected, then saved and returned to my veins. I can't believe as a stupid 19-year-old I trusted some military individual to return my blood to me, and apparently didn't think of the risks involved. I suppose the prospect of receiving what equaled 25 percent of my monthly pittance was my main draw! „ B.B. ANSWER: Protection for subjects in scientic studies has improved since 1967, especially for people in whom compulsion is more likely, such as military, prisoners and medical students, all of whom have been famously involved in research studies. It's also possible that lives have been saved thanks to people like you who participated in this study. We actually do this procedure now in clinical practice. People will have a unit or two of blood removed, and then they can get their own blood back during or after surgery. I suspect the military was testing that back in 1967. It seems unlikely, now that you are 70 (or near there), that it led to any medical issues. DEAR ABBY: Twelve years ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. It was a dicult pregnancy and delivery due to a medical condition my daughter was diagnosed with in the womb. The doctors let my husband and me know there could be problems during the delivery. We needed to make a decision. If things went wrong, we had to choose between my life and our daughter's life. I told my husband to pick her. I can't stop thinking about how quickly my husband agreed to that decision! At the time, I was OK with his immediate reaction and loved him more for caring about our child. My kid is the light of my life, and jealousy plays no role in my emotions. I would want him to choose her again, but I don't understand why his swift agreement haunts me still. „ Haunted In Texas DEAR HAUNTED: You may be viewing what happened from the wrong perspective. From where I sit, you TOLD your husband what you wanted his choice to be, and because he loves you, he immediately agreed. I'm willing to bet that you are his world. I know few men who would wish to parent a child alone. You made the choice for your husband, and you are wrong to be second-guessing him. DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for seven years from my 28-yearold daughter's father. She doesn't understand why I date and keeps asking me why I can't stay single. She said if I do nd a boyfriend, she'll refuse to meet him. She insists that if a man is in my life, he does not have to be in hers. What should I say to her? „ Getting Opposition In Austin, Texas DEAR GETTING: Tell her that you want to date and have companionship for the same reasons she does. Then point out that she does not have the right to dictate how you should live the rest of your life, and if she chooses not to meet someone who brings her mother happiness, it will be her loss. Dear Readers: In a previous column, a reader asked for delivery drivers to RING THE DOORBELL when they leave packages on the porch. Several readers wrote in. Here's a sampling: "I'm a delivery person. There are people who don't want us to ring because of a sleeping baby, barking dog or both. If you would like us to ring the doorbell, please leave a note on the door." „ Lisa, via email "I was happy that someone mentioned what should be obvious: Ring the doorbell. I made a sign and put it on my front gate: 'All Deliveries, Ring Doorbell.'" „ Dave B., Anaheim, Calif. "Some people are day sleepers. There are apps that'll notify you when your package has been delivered, and every stop along the way. You'll get a text once your package has arrived." „ A Retired Late Sleeper in Louisiana Thank you for your feedback! „ HeloiseMan questions if u shot would benet his overall health Choice made before birth continues to haunt mom Reader doorbell responsesHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby


Page 6 The Sun / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). In this Jenga game of life, what seems like a perfectly stable arrangement can be knocked down in a blink with the right kind of jostle. This knowledge makes you simultaneously tougher and tenderer about it all. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes people dont know what to ask for until they see others get it. Mostly its a feeling were going for, not an item, though it can be dicult to tell when its the item that seems to be making us happy, if only momentarily. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At the start of something, the tendency will be to judge every movement as if it were a sign about whether or not to continue. But once you get to the middle, all the trepidation will disappear into your desire to get it accomplished. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Slowing down isnt giving up, but its not showing full commitment and enthusiasm, either. Youll be in a highly visible position today, and others will take their social and professional cues from you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Youll help people by connecting with them through a shared activity. It really doesnt matter what the activity is. What matters is your approach to it „ serious but not solemn. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Removing your expectations from a relationship is not only wise; its kind. It allows people to be who they really are, and it allows you to understand who that is „ a knowledge that will enhance your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The representation of a thing is always dierent from the lived experience of it. Youve always known that at some point youd have to decide which version you wanted more. The point of decision is fast approaching. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Intimidating characters pepper this group you want to join, but dont let that deter you. Once inside youll nd out people are friendlier than they seem from the outside. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Friends will meet success. Your time is coming! You may have to swallow jealous tinges to be truly supportive, but this will be relatively easy for you when you focus on the good luck that is coming your way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those people trying terribly hard to be good are quite possibly compensating for something else. Keep your eyes open, and be slow to align yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The rst requirement for eective action is to make sure youre really behind it. Determine what you really believe, and then get on your own side. If youre not on your side, gure out why and change it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youre likely to take the action that most people would take „ the thing that seems like the best and easiest choice. So give yourself easy options that will make you proud. It will take some planning. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (June 5). This will be a year that sizzles with excitement. It starts with a brilliant plan based both on history and your gut instincts, which are particularly keen over the next three months. October shows you doubling up on friends and money. In November youll nally get the chance to experience what youve long wondered about. Aquarius and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 33, 48 and 15.

Page 8 The Sun / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 ALMANAC Today is Tuesday, June 5, the 156th day of 2018. There are 209 days left in the year. Today in history On June 5, 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was shot and mortally wounded after claiming victory in Californias Democratic presidential primary at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles; assassin Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was arrested at the scene. On this date In 1794 Congress passed the Neutrality Act, which prohibited Americans from taking part in any military action against a country that was at peace with the United States. In 1884 Civil War hero Gen. William T. Sherman refused the Republican presidential nomination, saying, I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected.Ž In 1917 about 10 million American men between the ages of 21 and 31 began registering for the draft in World War I. In 1933 the United States went off the gold standard. In 1950, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Henderson v. United States, struck down racially segregated railroad dining cars. In 1967 war erupted in the Middle East as Israel, anticipating a possible attack by its Arab neighbors, launched a series of pre-emptive airfield strikes that destroyed nearly the entire Egyptian air force; Syria, Jordan and Iraq immediately entered the conflict. In 1986 a federal jury in Baltimore convicted Ronald W. Pelton of selling secrets to the Soviet Union. In 1993 country star Conway Twitty died in Springfield, Missouri, at age 59. In 2004 Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, died in Los Angeles at age 93 after a long struggle with Alzheimers disease. Todays birthdays Actor-singer Bill Hayes is 93. Broadcast journalist Bill Moyers is 84. Author Dame Margaret Drabble is 79. Country singer Don Reid (The Statler Brothers) is 73. Rock singer Laurie Anderson is 71. Country singer Gail Davies is 70. Author Ken Follett is 69. Financial guru Suze Orman is 67. Rock musician Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) is 66. Actress Beth Hall is 60. Actor Jeff Garlin is 56. Singer Brian McKnight is 49. Actor Mark Wahlberg is 47. Actor Chad Allen is 44. Actress Navi Rawat is 41. Actress Liza Weil is 41. Rock musician Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy) is 39. Bible verse When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?Ž „ John 6:5. Sometimes Jesus gives us a problem so that we can learn more about His ability to solve them. Your problem may really be an opportunity in disguise. Just as he fed the 5,000 He can meet your needs too. NEW ORLEANS (AP) „ A Virginia man has slurped down 40 dozen oysters to claim victory at this years World Oyster Eating Championship in New Orleans. TimesPicayune reports Darron Breeden ate 480 of the bivalves in eight minutes in Sundays Oyster Festival event. About 4,000 south Louisiana oysters were prepared and shuttled tray by tray to a table laden with hot sauce, beer and other drinks. The seven contestants ate over the checked tabletop as judges kept careful count, turning over a new number with each dozen consumed. As time ran out, Breeden stretched his stomach, which would soon be encircled by the oyster-festooned championship belt. Defending champion Michelle Lesco of Arizona won second place with 27 dozen oysters, while New Orleans native Adrian Morgan came in third with 26 dozen.ODD NEWS Aw, shucks: Virginia man downs 480 oysters to claim crownhad argued that forcing him to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple violated his rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion. Instead, the court said Phillips was treated unfairly by the civil rights commission, and for this reason alone, he should win his case. The commissions hostility (to Phillips and his religious beliefs) was inconsistent with the 1st Amendments guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion,Ž Kennedy wrote. Phillips was entitled to a neutral decision-maker who would give full and fair consideration to his religious objection.Ž But he said this ruling would not apply to other similar disputes. The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts,Ž he said. These disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek good and services in the open market.Ž Kennedy also spoke for the court in its 2015 ruling that upheld same-sex marriage as a constitutional right. Speaking then for a 5-4 majority, he said marriage is a fundamental right, and it demeans gays and lesbians for the state to lock them outŽ of having legal recognition of their marriages. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right,Ž he wrote. But he conceded that some people would strongly disagree based on their religious beliefs and said the 1st Amendment ensured they would have proper protectionŽ when expressing their contrary views. In the wake of the marriage ruling, conservative religiousrights advocates led by the Alliance Defending Freedom sought to establish a right to refuse to help celebrate a same-sex marriage. The Arizona-based group brought suits on a behalf of a wedding photographer in New Mexico, a ”orist in Washington state and the Colorado baker whose case reached the Supreme Court. Colorado is one of 22 states whose civil rights laws require businesses that are open to the public to serve all customers on an equal basis and without regard to their sexual orientation. Charlie Craig and David Mullins, the two men who were turned away by Phillips, “led a complaint with the state, and its civil rights commission decided unanimously he had indeed violated the states law. Phillips was told that he must make wedding cakes on an equal basis, but he chose to suspend this part of his business. His store remains in operation, but he no longer creates custom cakes. He appealed the states decision, but lost in the Colorado courts. He then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing the states action violated his rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion protected by the 1st Amendment.COURTFROM PAGE 1powerful explosion. Soon, searing ”ows of lava, ash and rock mixed with water and debris were gushing down the volcanos ”anks, blocking roads and burning homes. It traveled much faster. It arrived in communities right when the evacuation alerts were being sent out,Ž de Leon said. Authorities scrambled to issue an evacuation order. Some communities emptied out safely. But in places like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles downslope from the crater, it was too late for many. The fast-moving ”ows overtook people in homes and streets with temperatures reaching as high as 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation. Rafael Letran, a resident of El Rodeo, criticized Conred for not evacuating communities earlier. When the lava was already here they passed by in their pickup trucks yelling at us to leave, but the cars did not stop to pick up the people,Ž Letran said. The government is good at stealing, but when it comes to helping people they lack spark.Ž De Leon said the disaster agency followed protocol. As soon as we received the information around 6 a.m. that the volcano was in an eruptive phase, the protocol was initiated to verify with different sectors and also talk to the communities, to community leaders. ... We had the information from our scienti“c service, and they told us the trend was that the activity was diminishing,Ž he said. In El Rodeo on Monday, heavily armed soldiers wearing blue masks to avoid breathing in ash stood guard behind yellow tape cordoning off the disaster scene. Helmeted workers carried bodies away on stretchers, and smoke was still rising from some parts of the ashen landscape strewn with boulders and other debris. President Jimmy Morales traveled to survey the disaster area. Emergency crews in helicopters managed to pull at least 10 people alive from areas cut off by the ”ows. Conred said 3,265 people had been evacuated.VOLCANOFROM PAGE 1that a Sirhan Sirhan, 23, was traced through the .22 pistol used to wound Kennedy and “ve others, less seriously, and identi“cation was made through a brother, Adel Sirhan, of Pasadena. Even after the identi“cation, Yorty said, the prisoner refused to identify himself. As the two city of“cials made their announcement, Kennedy lay in a hospital “ghting for life. A doctor said he fears the outcome may be extremely tragic,Ž adding that a bullet evidently caused serious damage to the cerebellum, the part of the brain at the back of the head. The New York senator was shot just after jubilantly proclaiming victory in Californias Democratic presidential primary election. The man accused of the shooting was captured on the spot and later identi“ed as being a Jordanian born in Jerusalem, according to Mayor Yorty. He said Sirhan, who earlier had been arraigned as John DoeŽ on six counts of assault with intent to commit murder, had four $100 bills with him and a newspaper story not favorable to Kennedy. He also, Yorty said, had a schedule of where Kennedy was speaking in June. The slender, dark-haired young man sat stonily silent for hours under police questioning, giving only a lone yesŽ to one question. Finally he opened up, they said, and become quite talkative „ very cool, very calm, very stable and quite lucid.Ž But he declined to discuss himself or the shooting. A team of six surgeons removed all but a fragment of a bullet from Kennedys brain. A second and less serious bullet remained lodged in the back of his neck. Dr. Lawrence Pool, a New York neurosurgeon, said after talking with a member of the surgery team that the head wound is much more serious than initially had been expected.Ž He added: There was evidently serious damage to the cerebellum, the part of the brain on the extreme back of the head on the right side; also to part of the right cerebral hemisphere ... and also to the mid brain, which is the main cable connecting the brain itself with the rest of the body.Ž With stunning rapidity at 12:15 a.m., a man police described as a Caucasian, about 25, 5 feet 5 and 120 pounds, with dark hair and complexion, emptied the chamber of an eight-shot .22 pistol. Kennedy fell, hit apparently three times. Five others near him were wounded, none as badly as the presidential candidate. Kennedy lay for a time ”at on his back in the kitchen, eyes open, a crowd milling around him. Some observers say they heard him say, as he was lifted into a police ambulance, Oh, no. No. Dont.Ž Pandemonium broke loose. Roosevelt Grier, giant Negro tackle for the professional Los Angeles Rams, quickly grabbed the much smaller gunman, wrestled the gun from him and held him for police. President Johnson and others around the nation, including Kennedys rival on the campaign primary trail, Minnesotas Sen. McCarthy, expressed shock and sorrow. Johnson ordered the full resources of the FBI thrown into the case and ordered secret service protection for major candidates. Kennedy was brought “rst to Central Receiving Hospital where a doctor said he was practically deadŽ upon arrival. Physicians there administered closed cardiac massage, oxygen and adrenalin. At “rst he was pulseless,Ž said a doctor who treated him, then his pulse came back and we began to hear a heartbeat and he began to breathe a little erratically.Ž The doctor, Victor Baz, said Ethel Kennedy, who accompanied her husband in the ambulance, was frightened, she didnt believe he was alive because she couldnt see that he was responding. I put the stethoscope to her ears so she could listen and she was tremendously relieved. She was very distraught but superb ... very edgy, but my own wife wouldnt have done as well, I dont think. She was gracious at all times.Ž Kennedy was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital near downtown Los Angeles. There, a team of six surgeons began brain surgery at 3:12 a.m. that lasted about 3 hours and 40 minutes. Doctors said one bullet struck near the right ear and entered the brain. Another hit in the shoulder. A third apparently grazed his forehead. Kennedy was moved, unconscious, to the hospitals intensive care unit. The surgery was pronounced successful in that it accomplished what it set out to do, remove most of the bullet. Clark told a news conference, It seems incredible that another such profound tragedy would strike the Kennedy family which has suffered so much from violence already.Ž Clark was an assistant in the Justice Department when Kennedy was attorney general. Kennedy aides said six of Kennedys 10 children who accompanied him here are being returned to Washington on an Air Force plane arranged for by a campaign rival, Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey. Kennedy, in his address to the cheering supporters just before the shooting, was in good spirits with the long primary campaign trail behind him. He looked tired, however, and was looking forward to a few days of rest at the Malibu Beach home of a friend. Then the shots rang out. One witness said the shots came so close together that he could hardly believe they had been “red by one gun. This reporter heard the shots from an adjoining room and they sounded almost like a brief burst of machine-gun “re. The gunman appeared in the kitchen area behind the bandstand of the Embassy Room, where Kennedy backers, including movie stars and students, were listening to their candidates light-hearted victory speech. The gunman carried papers, which he spread out on a stainless steel table. One waiter described them as sketches. The backstage area was crowded with waiters, press and others, and the mans presence caused little notice. Kennedy “nished his speech and began working his way off the platform and into the kitchen, followed by close associates and members of his family. His wife, Ethel, had been at his side during the speech, but she became enveloped in the crowd. Kennedy gazed around as if searching for her. At that moment the gunman pushed through the throng, reached his arm around others in front of him and shot the senator. Roosevelt Grier, beefy tackle for the Los Angeles Rams, grabbed the mans arm. Joe LaHive, a local Kennedy campaigner, wrested the gun away. Grier and Olympic decathlon champion Rafer Johnson lifted the assailant and spread him on a steel kitchen table. Nobody hurt this man,Ž one of the athletes shouted. We want to take him alive.Ž Women were screaming, Oh, no.Ž God, God, not again.Ž Kennedy was stretched on the ”oor, his face covered with blood. Give him room. Step back.Ž Someone yelled. Kennedy seemed to hear nothing. His face was blank, his eyes staring sightlessly. Grier, Johnson and two or three others held the gunman on the table 10 feet away. Screams began to be heard in the ballroom as news of the shooting spread to the campaigners, who had been cheering their candidate two minutes before. Let me explainŽ the gunman shouted. I can explain.Ž A priest handed Kennedy a rosary, and he clutched it in his hand, but the priest was jostled aside. Kennedy was given emergency treatment by a doctor summoned from the ballroom. Then he was wheeled on a stretcher to the hotel service elevator and put into an ambulance.RFKFROM PAGE 1 but that Trumps alleged exploits havent gotten anything like the coverage you would expect.Ž Trump has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct and was caught on tape bragging about grabbing womens crotches.

By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressRoger Penske, from his perch at the Belle Isle race track in Detroit, the governor of Michigan by his side, summed it up smartly after one of General Motors top executives crashed a 2019 Corvette and delayed the start of the Detroit Grand Prix. Come to the races,Ž Penske said. Youll see anything.Ž It was true on Sunday when GMs Mark Reuss wrecked the newest Corvette ZR1l as he led the IndyCar field to the green flag as the celebrity pace car driver. This was a spotlight moment for Chevrolet to show off a new product in its home city, fresh off a win in the Indianapolis 500. There was no better person to handle the honors than Reuss the big dog of the motorsports program. Reuss is the executive vice president of global product development, purchasing and supply chain. In simpler terms, he was the stone-faced guy sitting over CEO Mary Barras shoulder when GM was called before Congress four years ago over a recall. He ranks really high in the GM corporate ladder, and his gaffe on the track was an internet sensation. One he probably wishes would go away. Reuss hit a bump in the street course that caused the Corvette to spin and hit hard into a wall.

The Detroit Tigers selected the Auburn right-hander with the first pick in the Major League Baseball draft Monday night. The announcement at MLB Network studios marked the second time the Tigers led off the draft, and first since they took Rice pitcher Matt Anderson in 1997. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Mize had long been linked to the Tigers, and he pitched his way this season to the top spot on the board. Mize wasnt chosen by any organization out of high school three years ago, but developed into a potential big league ace while in college.Tigers draft right-hander Casey Mize with No. 1 pick SEE MLB, 2 SEE RAYS, 2


It means a ton,Ž he said in an interview on MLB Networks broadcast. Im very thankful that the Tigers thought of me enough to take me with their first selection. I cant describe this feeling right now.Ž Mize is 10-5 with a 2.95 ERA and 151 strikeouts with just 12 walks in 109 ‡ innings while helping the Tigers to the NCAA Tournament super regionals. He has solid command of four pitches, including a fastball that hovers in the mid-90s (mph). His outstanding command and wicked split changeup whip up lots of swings and misses. Mize became the seventh player to go from undrafted in high school to the No. 1 pick, and first since Stephen Strasburg went to the Washington Nationals in 2009. In a statement, Tigers general manager Al Avila said the club is confident Mize will become a pillar in our player development system thats going to bring winning baseball to Detroit for seasons to come.Ž Being a college pitcher „ especially coming from the Southeastern Conference „ we know Casey has seen elite competition before,Ž he added. With the second selection, San Francisco took slugging Georgia Tech catcher Joey Bart, the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Oakland created a major buzz at No. 9 and shook up some draft boards by tabbing speedy Oklahoma outfielder „ and quarterback „ Kyler Murray, the favorite to replace Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield this season as the Sooners starter on the football field. Florida high school righty Carter Stewart was the second player in attendance to be selected, going eighth overall to Atlanta. It also made for a heartwarming moment as 16-year-old Luke Terry, a one-armed high school catcher from Tennessee and a lifelong Braves fan, announced Stewarts name at the podium. Florida right-hander Brady Singer, considered a potential top-3 selection, fell all the way to Kansas City at No. 18.

Leading 4-0 entering the fourth inning, a pair of defensive miscues led to a three-run inning for the Blue Jays. All three runs were unearned off Burke, as Dunedin used just two hits to get those three runs. That was just the beginning of the comeback, as the Blue Jays eventually took a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning. An error, once again, contributed to one of the runs, as did a home run half way up the batters eye in centerfield by Bradley Jones. Its the lack of effort,Ž Ruiz said. The physical errors are going to be there, I get that. But when youre lazy, its unacceptable.Ž Burke threw 92 pitches in his fiveinning outing, allowing seven hits and two walks. He also had four strike outs. Even though a pitcher should be able to overcome those mistakes, (the errors) definitely affected him and the whole game,Ž Ruiz said. Thats why the result was in their favor.Ž Ivan Pelaez made his fifth appearance of the season in relief with Charlotte. Pelaez tossed three scoreless frames, allowing just three hits with two strikeouts. Spencer Jones also threw a scoreless inning. The Stone Crabs cashed in early with the help of a two-out rally. After Blue Jays starter picked up two quick outs, Robbie Tenerowiczs double followed by a Nate Lowe single put a run on the board. Jesus Sanchez added two more runs when he smoked his seventh home run of the season to give the Stone Crabs a 3-0 lead.

Widely projected to be a first-round pick in the major league draft, McClanahan lasted until the 31st pick, when he was taken by the Rays with a Round 1 compensatory pick. As a result, C Scott Hemond (12th overall, As, 1986) remains the highest-drafted player in USF history. Once even considered a top-10 pick due to a fastball that can touch triple digits, McClanahan totaled 120 strikeouts in 76 ‡ innings this season, but struggled with his command in conference and postseason play. He lasted five or fewer innings in five of his 14 starts this season. In his final Bulls appearance „ an 11-inning, 9-4 triumph Saturday against Hartford in the NCAA Tournament „ McClanahan threw 110 pitches in only five innings. He struck out three, walked four, hit two batters and tossed two wild pitches. The inconsistency prompted some experts to suggest the redshirt sophomore, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2016, may be better suited as a reliever in the big leagues. Early on in the spring, this was a guy who was one of the better college pitchers in the country,Žs Jonathan Mayo said. That arm strength is legit.

MLB: Rays Rays draft USF left-handed ace McClanahan Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Washington Capitals are one win a way from the first championship in their 43-year history after routing the Vegas Golden Knights 6-2 on Monday night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final. T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson and Devante Smith-Pelly all scored in the first period to get the Capitals rolling against a determined Vegas team that had no answers early against Braden Holtby, who stopped 28 shots. The desperate Golden Knights outchanced the Capitals by a wide margin but fell apart after James Neal clanked a shot off the post instead of hitting a wide-open net early, and the expansion teams Cinderella run could be over in a matter of days. Evgeny Kuznetsov dished out four assists and John Carlson, Michal Kempny and Brett Connolly also scored as thunderous chants of We want the Cup! We want the Cup!Ž rang out from the crowd.STANLEY CUP FINAL: Capitals 6, Golden Knights 2Capitals on verge of Cup after blowout win


By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS „ Serena Williams tried to play through the pain of an injured chest muscle. Eventually, barely able to serve, she knew she had to call off her Grand Slam comeback. Williams pulled out of the French Open less than an hour before she was supposed to face Maria Sharapova in a fourth-round showdown Monday, the mostanticipated match of the tournament so far. The announcement came two days after the 36-yearold American initially felt something was wrong during a singles victory. But she hid that bit of information „ even from her coach „ and a day after Williams struggled through a doubles loss with her sister, Venus. This was Williams first major tournament in 16 months, and her first as a mother. She was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January 2017 for her 23rd Grand Slam singles championship, the most for anyone during tennis 50-year professional era. Her baby was born last September. I have given up so much to be here. There is times where Im on the court and Im practicing, and I look on the monitor, and I see my daughter and shes playing, and I want to be there,Ž Williams said. But I know that these are the sacrifices you have to make to live out your dream. And I have made every sacrifice that I could. So its extremely disappointing.Ž Her voice trembled a bit during a brief news conference, where she explained she will get an MRI on Tuesday and consult with doctors before figuring out what comes next. Her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, said in an interview that an ultrasound revealed the injury to the muscle, but the extent wasnt clear. The fact that I physically cant serve at all is a good indication that maybe I should just go back to the drawing board and stay positive,Ž Williams said, and try to get better and not get it to a point where it could be a lot worse.Ž In a statement released by the tournament, Sharapova wished Williams a speedy recovery.Ž This would have been their 22nd career meeting; Williams has won 19, including the past 18. Because of the withdrawal, this does not count as a victory for Sharapova, who will play 2016 French Open champion Garbine Muguruza on Wednesday. Oddly enough, Muguruza didnt have to put forth much effort in the fourth round, either. Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko, stopped because of an injury after only two games. No. 1 Simona Halep, a two-time runner-up at Roland Garros, will play former No. 1 Angelique Kerber, a two-time major champion elsewhere, in Wednesdays other quarterfinal after both picked up easy straight-set wins in the fourth round. The quarterfinals Tuesday are Sloane Stephens vs. Daria Kasatkina, and Madison Keys vs. Yulia Putintseva. Kasatkina eliminated Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki 7-6 (5), 6-3 in a match that resumed Monday after being suspended a night earlier because of darkness at 3-all in the second set. The days biggest buzz was about a match that never took place. Williams said she first was troubled by her pectoral muscle during the best performance of her return, a 6-3, 6-4 win in the third round against 11th-seeded Julia Goerges on Saturday. But Mouratoglou had no idea there was an issue. She didnt tell him she was hurting? No, because she knew I would tell her not to play the doubles,Ž he told the AP. I would have made her cancel the doubles, believe me.Ž During Sundays doubles, though, Williams showed signs of trouble. By the third set, she hit first serves at about 80 mph (130 kph), about 40 mph (70 kph) slower than she can. Between points, she repeatedly jabbed a thumb into her chest to massage the muscle. At the end, she was just pushing the ball. ... Thats when I knew she had a problem. I didnt know what kind of problem, but I knew there was something really wrong,Ž Mouratoglou said. Basically, she couldnt play.Ž Williams tried taping up the muscle for doubles, but that didnt help. And while shes pretty much had every injury in the book,Ž this was the first time dealing with this particular malady. Mouratoglou said they held a practice session Monday morning, holding out hope that maybe rain in the forecast would postpone the match against Sharapova. We might gain one more day, and you never know how it feels tomorrow. So we had to wait,Ž he said. But we saw the sky was still blue ... and we thought, No chance.Ž Sharapovas coach, Thomas Hogstedt, said that word of Williams withdrawal arrived while his player was doing warmup exercises outside the locker room at Court Philippe Chatrier, waiting for the match ahead of theirs to finish. She was keen on playing Serena. Its a little bit sad, I think, for everyone. Everybody looked forward to this match,Ž Hogstedt said. This match has had so much build-up.Ž The Sun / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 SP Page 3AP FILE PHOTOThis 2017 file photo shows The Discovery Communications logo atop its headquarters in Silver Spring, Md. AP PHOTOSerena Williams, of the U.S, answers journalists at the Roland Garros stadium Monday in Paris. TENNIS: French OpenSerena out of French Open before Sharapova matchBy TERRIN WAACKAssociated PressNEW YORK „ The PGA Tour broadened its international reach Monday in a $2 billion agreement with Discovery Inc., to deliver golf content directly to consumers in 220 markets outside the United States over the next 12 years. Nine months after the PGA Tour chose not to opt out early of its U.S. network deals, it formed an alliance to turn over its content outside of the U.S. to Discovery, a company that already is reaching audiences around the world through its Eurosport network and other channels. The tour had been exploring its own network. Discovery is the largest international media company,Ž Commissioner Jay Monahan said from the tours New York office. They have content experience, distribution experience, direct-toconsumer experience that, candidly, nobody else has. So they can do for the PGA Tour, and they can do for the game of golf, what no one else can do internationally. This puts us in a place that we could never get to on our own,Ž he said. And it allows us to accomplish some things that we think a decade from now will be exceptional.Ž Discovery has networks such as Animal Planet and Discovery, and through its acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive added the Food Network, HGTV and Travel Channel. Discoverys Eurosport reaches 700 million people and holds Olympic rights through 2024. There is no sport thats more global than the PGA Tour,Ž said David Zaslav, the president and CEO of Discovery. Theres no sport thats more local than the PGA Tour, and theres no sport that has a demographic thats voraciously hungry to consume content.Ž The PGA Tour has 85 players from 25 countries who are full members, including two from China this year. Zaslav said the alliance allows Discovery to build a global platform, an ecosystem around golf that will nourish and excite every golf fan everywhere in the world.Ž The requirement includes a PGA Tourbranded streaming service to reach fans around the world on every mobile screen and device. That includes some 2,000 hours of content from more than 40 PGA Tour events, along with events from five other tours it runs. The PGA Tour has development circuits in China, Canada and Lati n America. Zaslav said content created in the U.S. can be tailored to meet needs in Asia or other markets. Local matters,Ž he said. What we found with sport throughout Europe is local is everything. So the fact that 50 percent of the top players on the tour are form outside the U.S. is huge.Ž Sergio Garcia is one example. Facts about the former Masters champion dont reveal much. He checks in at 5-foot10 and 180 pounds. He turned pro in 1999. But whats going on in his game and fun activities away from golf are rarel y mentioned unless Garcia is near the lead. For so many players, there is a lack of personal information. Thats where Discovery comes in. We want our players from those home countries to have a greater voice and to be able to tell their story,Ž Monahan said, and for them to be able to share to their fans in their home country how theyre progressing through the year, and what theyre eating, how theyre training, the ups, the downs, the life cycle of a season, which has incredible highs and lows, but really to be able to follow that player more intimately than we currently can today.Ž The PGA Tour and Discovery are going to work together to see what works best for golf. Theyre looking at live coverage and beyond. The platform they plan to develop could ultimately be somewhere fans shop, talk to each other, consume news content or watch instructional videos.GOLF: PGA Discovery and PGA agree to $2 billion international rights deal Although such numbers might not be foremost in Nadals mind, they are gauges to the impressive longevity and winning consistency of the Spaniard who turned 32 on Sunday. I dont feel myself old. But I am 32, and I am here around since 2003, so its a long way, a lot of years. I started very young,Ž he said. Being honest, I am enjoying the day by day on the tour and I hope to keep doing this for a while.Ž Nadals next opponent, Diego Schwartzman of Argentina, will be playing his first Roland Garros quarterfinal. It will be Nadals 12th. The only other player with that many in the professional era is Djokovic, who plays his 12th quarterfinal against Marco Cecchinato of Italy. Juan Martin del Potro and Marin Cilic, both former U.S. Open champions, completed the quarterfinal lineup with wins. Cilic, runner-up at the Australian Open in January, was up two sets and seemingly cruising against Fabio Fognini before the hard-to-dislodge Italian took the next two sets, saving a match point along the way. The third-seeded Cilic ultimately prevailed 6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-3. Just a crazy match,Ž said the Croatian, a quarterfinalist last year, too. It was just hanging by a thread. A couple of points decided it.Ž Del Potro, Cilics next opponent, had a more straightforward 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win against big-serving John Isner, who served 12 aces but fell short of becoming the first American man to reach the quarterfinals since Andre Agassi in 2003, despite hopeful chants of U-S-A!, U-SA!Ž from the crowd. I was outplayed by a large margin,Ž Isner said. I would have liked to maybe put up a better fight.Ž Marterer fought, for all the good it did him against Nadal. A lefthander like the Spaniard but ranked 69 spots below the No. 1, the Germans first French Open, and only his third major, has shown he has the tennis to play many more. On Court Philippe Chatrier where Nadal has triumphed so often, he broke the defending champion in the first game, with Nadal looking more like the nervy debutant, serving a double fault at 15-40. But Rafas Law „ the unwritten logic that he is practically unbeatable on the red clay in Paris „ quickly prevailed. Like so many other players down the years since Nadals first title in 2005, Marterer soon found himself back in the press center, explaining to reporters what its like to be on the receiving end. You know, if he hits a forehand like, yeah, really heavy, its of course something different compared to any other opponent you have during the year,Ž he said. The better guy won in the end.ŽNADALFrom Page 1 Chevy issued a tightly worded statement about the incidentŽ that did not identify Reuss and said many factors contributed, including weather and track conditions. The cars safety systems performed as expected.Ž On Facebook, Reuss seemed devastated. His settings are private, but Forbes reported Monday that Reuss wrote: I have driven this course many many many times. I have paced this race in the wet, cold, hot and calm. It is never a casual thing for me, but an honor to be asked. Today I let down my friends, my family, IndyCar, our city, and my company. Sorry does not describe it. I want to thank our engineers for providing me the safety I know is the best in the world.Ž Perhaps Reuss is being a bit too hard on himself. Theres a reason he pays pros to drive the Chevrolets. Its not easy, and, yes, many factors come into play, including weather and track conditions. It was a beautiful, sunny day in Detroit when Reuss wrecked, but it had rained earlier and the track had been washed away of any tire buildup from two previous days of racing. It likely made for a slick and fast track, and Reuss was in a powerful car when he hit a bum p in a difficult corner. Ryan Hunter-Reay, a driver for rival Honda who won Sundays race, said his takeaway from the crash was the power of GMs 2019 toy. I think thats a testament to the Corvette ZR1,Ž he said. I know that thing is 750 horsepower. Ive driven one before, and you do not want to jump on the gas in that thing. For sure its a fast car.Ž Aside from a headset allowin g him to listen to race control, Reuss was just a corporate executive in his work clothes doing his Sunday job. And he got in a car accident while doing his job. He was not injured, though like many pace car drivers in a street vehicle, Reuss was not wearing any safety equipment. It would be unusual for anyone to be talking about Chevrolet or its new Corvette if not for Reuss incidentŽ with the p ace car. It mi g ht not be a marketing jackpot, but GM is getting extensive attention for its car and now can spin the incident by highlighting the safety performance. Reuss should pick himself up and put this tale behind him. He can it turn into a dinner party yarn about the highs and lows of racing. You know, like the time Chevy won the Indy 500, only to wreck the pace car a week later in Detroit, in front of the g overnor, on live TV. AUTOFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP Tuesday, June 5, 2018 / The SunBy MARC TOPKINTimes Staff WriterWASHINGTON „ C Wilson Ramos is eager to return to the scene of his prime. Ramos played parts of seven seasons with the Nationals, picking up the Buffalo nickname and sing-song Phish walk-up tune, culminating with a 2016 All-Star season that had him in line for a mega-bucks contract if not for a final week knee injury. Thats what led him to sign, at a reduced twoyear rate, with the Rays. And as Ramos, 30 completes his return to form, hitting .299 with seven homers and an .819 OPS, headed toward another shot at free agency, he is eager for the quick twogame visit to Nationals Park. Im very excited to go back and play there,Ž Ramos said. Ive got good memories. The fans love me in that city. Its going to be very special for me.Ž Ramos ticked off a series of highlights, from his first walkoff home run to catching three nohitters, including two by Tuesday night starter Max Scherzer, as well as his 20-strikeout game. Those are great moments in my career with that team,Ž Ramos said.Medical mattersThe Rays were collecting information Monday on several medical situations that could have shortand long-term implications: € RHP Chris Archer went to see core muscle specialist Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia, with the possibility of missing at least one start with a DL stint. € Triple-A LHP Anthony Banda, the prime return in the February trade of OF Steven Souza Jr. to Arizona, was seeing Dr. Koco Eaton in St. Petersburg to determine the extent of what is at least a forearm strain. If he were to have a torn ligament that required Tommy John surgery he would be the third advanced prospect to be sidelined, joining Jose De Leon and Brent Honeywell. € 1B/DH C.J. Cron was recovering from a bruised right forearm sustained when he was hit by a Felix Hernandez pitch and forced out of the game, with manager Kevin Cash expecting him in the lineup Tuesday. € There was no update on the status of pitching coach Kyle Snyder, who was hospitalized over the weekend in Seattle for what the team called a personal medical issue.ŽDavey in the dugoutDavey Martinez spent 2 seasons playing for the Devil Rays, two years as a part-time instructor and then seven years as bench coach during Rays heydays. Having been passed over by the Rays to succeed Joe Maddon in 2015, he went with him to the Cubs as bench coach, then finally got his chance to manage this year, taking over a contenting Washington squad. As for facing his old team? Itll be fun,Ž Martinez said in Atlanta Sunday. Itll be fun to see some familiar faces and guys I was around for many, many years.

AP PHOTOJockey Martin Garcia works Triple Crown hopeful Justify at Churchill Downs Tuesday in Louisville, Ky. By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressBob Baffert misses the simple pleasure of watching American Pharoah breeze. On the verge of his second Triple Crown with Justify, the Hall of Fame trainer is quick to recall his admiration for his first history-making superhorse. Ive never had a horse work like him,Ž Baffert said. His mechanics, his motion, just the way he did it. ... This horse is starting to act like Pharoah.Ž Justify isnt American Pharoah. He wasnt a 2-year-old champion and never seemed destined to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. American Pharoah looked bred and built for that. Though Justifys path to this point has differed wildly from American Pharoahs run to the 2015 Triple Crown, Baffert sees similarities in his stride, his growth and his potential. Thats why he thinks Justify could be just the second Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. Theyre two different type of horses, Pharoah and this guy,Ž Baffert said after Justify won the Preakness. I think I see a lot of resemblance in these two, the way they move. ... When I worked him after the Preakness, American Pharoah, when he would breathe, he was like he was a machine. And this horse is getting there.Ž Justifys recent works have brought some similarities into focus. American Pharoah didnt have his best in the Kentucky Derby before rolling in the pouring rain in the Preakness. Three years later, Justify has rebounded from an imperfect Preakness to appear on top of his game with the mileand-a-half Belmont coming up Saturday. He just keeps doing more than we keep expecting,Ž Justify jockey Mike Smith told The Associated Press after the Preakness. Theres always going to be that race where hes going to have to fight one out. I believe that was the one, so hopefully hell come back and run even better next time.ŽHORSE RACING: Triple CrownBa ert sees parallels between Justify and American Pharoah By JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressBATAVIA, N.Y. „ Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly will receive ESPNs Jimmy V Award for the toughness and perseverance hes displayed during his ongoing battle with oral cancer. ESPN officially announced the honor Monday, a few hours after Kelly first revealed the news while attending his charitable foundations 32nd golf tournament outside of Buffalo. Kelly will be honored during the networks ESPY Awards on July 18. The award is named for late North Carolina State mens basketball coach Jimmy Valvano, who gave an inspirational speech at the ESPYs in 1993 less than two months before he died of cancer. Valvano most notably led the Wolfpack on an improbable run to win the 1983 NCAA Tournament championship. Kelly had surgery to have cancer removed from his jaw in March after tests revealed a recurrence. The 58-yearold Kelly was initially diagnosed five years ago with skin cancer and had been cancer free since September 2014. Kelly is still unable to eat solid foods. He is scheduled to have an operation on June 21, when doctors plan to add tissue to the upper portion of his mouth. He is then scheduled to have permanent dentures inserted during another procedure in September. Kelly said hes honored to receive the award, before joking that the only bad thing about it is you have to go through a lot to get it.Ž Difficult as it has been for him, Kelly leans on his faith and says he continues to battle to help inspire others who have cancer. The good Lord has put me in this situation to help not only the people out there who are suffering from cancer, but little kids, too, who are going through tough times to never give up, to keep fighting, because you never know,Ž Kelly said.NFL: BillsJim Kelly to receive Jimmy V AwardAP FILE PHOTOHall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is shown at the Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp, in Orchard Park, N.Y.

State lawmakers brushed back those concerns, telling the leagues that such payments arent going to happen. New Jersey lawmakers are facing some key decisions Monday as they race to legalize sports betting after winning a case in the U.S. Supreme Court. Members of the state Senate and Assembly are taking up a bill that would authorize sports betting. Officials from Major League Baseball, the NBA, and the PGA Tour testified against the bill. They say the leagues need the integrity fee payments, as well as additional tools like information sharing and real-time data controls to make sure betting is conducted honestly. But they stopped short of threatening to sue to block the law, saying they hope to negotiate the desired changes. The integrity fee does not exist in Nevada. Bryan Seeley, a former federal p rosecutor who now serves as senior vice president and deputy general counsel for MLB, said his office was created due to a sports betting scandal: the 1919 World Series that was intentionally lost by the Chicago Black Sox in league with gamblers. Any law to authorize and regulate sports betting must put consumer safety and sports integrity first,Ž he said in prepared testimony. It must recognize that without our games and without a product that fans can trust, sports betting cannot exist.  Dan Spillane, senior vice president and assistant general counse l for the NBA, said sports betting is a unique industry, which builds its product entirely on another business (i.e., a sports league), imposes substantial risks on the other business, and requires the other business to spend more to protect itself, all without providing compensation or a voice in how the underlying product is used.ŽSPORT BETTING: Supreme Court RulingLawmakers facing key decisions on sports betting rules
