At “rst glance, it would seem there were no abortions in Charlotte County last year and through at least April this year, despite hundreds in prior years. But numbers painting that picture from the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration are incorrect, according to some of“ces performing abortions locally and opponents following them closely. Its dishonest,Ž said Respect Life Director at Diocese of Venice in Florida Jeanne Berdeaux about the data. It shows were abortion-free in Charlotte County, and were not.Ž If statewide totals are correct, though, then Florida has seen slightly fewer abortions overall performed in recent years „ dropping from 69,770 in 2016 to 68,935 last year. Numbers nationally have also declined in recent years, which has been attributed to improvements in contraceptive use along with some restrictions on abortion imposed by state lawmakers, at least according to the Guttmacher Institute, which is a research and policy organization aimed at advancing sexual and reproductive rights. A few years ago, the U.S. abortion rate hit a historic low falling below levels in 1973 „ when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision in Roe v. Wade, which recognized that a constitutional right to privacy includes a womans right to abortion. But exactly how many abortions are happening in Florida, county-by-county, appears to be skewed. For example, AHCA data recently available to the public online showed 143 abortions happened in Charlotte County in 2016, but none in 2017, nor any so far this year. Sarasota County had slightly fewer, dropping from 1,423 in 2016 to 1,357 last year. Meanwhile, Lee and Hillsborough counties had more abortions last year compared to the year before, at least according to the data from AHCA, which changed its reporting system last year. Abortion numbers dont tell real storyData collection issue impacts local statsBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERASSISTANT EDITOR RESTRICTIONS ON ABORTIONThe following restrictions on abortion were in effect in Florida (as of Jan. 1): € Health plans offered in the states health exchange under the Affordable Care Act can only cover abortion if the womans life is endangered, or in cases of rape or incest, unless individuals purchase an optional rider at an additional cost. € The parent of a minor must be notified before an abortion is provided. € Public funding is available for abortion only in cases of life endangerment, rape or incest. € A woman must undergo an ultrasound before obtaining an abortion; the provider must offer her the option to view the image. € An abortion may be performed at 24 or more weeks after the womans last menstrual period only if the womans life or health is endangered. „ Source: Guttmacher Institute SUN FILE PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSA 40 Days for Life prayer vigil group stood along Olean Boulevard in April 2014 holding signs promoting their message near the Port Charlotte oce of a local physician who provides abortion services, Dr. Ali Azima.

Thats based on to a study from WalletHub, which recently published the results of its 2018 Best & Worst Cities in Florida for Jobs.Ž Port Charlotte was ranked 120th out of 135 cities reviewed in the study. Venice came in at a stronger 27th, and North Port ranked 83rd, according to WalletHub. Port Charlotte lacks industry variety,Ž said Jill Gonzalez, analyst and media director at Wallethub. An improvement in that area could bring with it a rise in full-time employment.Ž Top industries in Charlotte County involve health care, social assistance, retail trade and construction, according to Charlotte County Economic Development Offices 2017 Industrial Snapshot. These industries account for almost 42 percent of jobs in Charlotte County. As for the socioeconomic environment, Port Charlottes residents have very high annual transportation costs, leaving room for improvement in the public transit sector,Ž Gonzalez said. Port Charlotte can also improve in its high housing costs, as well as employee benefits, according to Gonzalez. WalletHub compared 135 Florida cities using 16 metrics covering the local job market, along with the areas socioeconomic environment. The study considered factors ranging from the number job openings per unemployed resident and the average starting salary, to the share of employers providing benefits and the length of the average work day. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale. A weighted-sum of each citys individual-metric scores made up its overall States best place for jobs is ƒBy LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERJOBS | 9I am a Socialist, probably even a Communist.

SARASOTA „ As department directors stepped to the table to present their proposed budgets to Sarasota County commissioners this week, one item jumped off the page. Uncontrollable costs. While pay raises and internal service charges accounted for some of the cost increases in each county department, medical and pharmacy costs continue to be the key driver, according to county of“cials. These particular costs continue to be a focus for Commissioner Mike Moran, who jumped on the topic during Libraries Director Sarabeth Kalajians presentation. In theory, every cost were dealing with here is controllable,Ž Moran said, pointing to claims adjudications and plan designs as examples. When County Administrator Jonathan Lewis countered with the argument that there are many costs that were beyond the control of the department heads, Moran argued they could be controlled by the commissioners. We must control these costs,Ž Moran continued. Commissioner Charles Hines added that the county controls its revenues through the millage rate or can control costs by lowering the levels of service to county residents. Chris Louria, the countys director of Human Resources, told commissioners during his budget presentation that his staff continues to aggressively monitor the trends among county employees on the medical and pharmacy claims. With open enrollment coming this fall, Louria said his staff was exploring changes to the medical and prescriptions plans offered to county employees. They also continue to push the variety of preventative health programs the county offers employees as another means of cost reduction. A fairly new program, Teledoc, has proved extremely popular with employees, Louria said, with usage increasing threefold from 2016 to 2017. The program allows county employees to access a national network of doctors by telephone or videoconferencing to discuss their medical issue. Louria indicated that the program saves the county about $79 per visit. He did not present, nor did commissioners request, speci“c data on the rising health care costs for the county but indicated that there would be a future presentation to the board on the issue. Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comSarasota County commissioners debate controlling costsBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENT Punta Gorda Airport is one of just a few airports serving Allegiant, which the airline pinpoints for longer than normal waits at security checkpoints. Since the airport expanded with the Bailey Terminal in 2016, Allegiants presence has also grown, according to Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) spokesperson Kaley Miller. Its a trend,Ž Miller said. As Allegiant has increased the amount of planes that theyve based here, theyve also increased the amount of ”ights departing in the morning.Ž But the airport is working on a few solutions. Possibilities include rewarding passengers who arrive early, requesting some earlier departures, and asking for an additional security checkpoint. Now, with six to nine planes usually based at PGD, the airport is considered an originating airport. There are multiple ”ights departing between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. each morning,Ž said Miller. A check of PGD arrivals and departures, for example, shows a ”ight was scheduled to depart every 10 minutes on June 15 between 6:30 a.m. and 7:20 a.m. Inevitably, there are going to be hundreds of people arriving around the same time each morning, which leads to longer lines for check-in and TSA security screening during this morning time window,Ž Miller said. For these early morning ”ights, PGD recommends passengers arrive two hours before their scheduled departure time to allow enough time for check-in, screening and boarding. Allegiant is currently the only commercial carrier ”ying through PGD. And with 36 ”ights routing into the airport, that marks a high-point for the airline, which began service at PGD in March of 2009, Allegiant spokesperson Krysta Levy recently said. March was the busiest month in the history of Punta Gorda Airport when there were 94,795 boarding passengers, and 98,152 arriving passengers, the Charlotte County Airport Authority recently announced. Aside from providing a reward to pa ssengers who arrive early „ which Miller said could be announced soon „ the airline is also exploring other solutions to alleviate security waits. For example, PGD has been in discussions with Allegiant about potentially spacing out morning flights mo re. The airport recommends some ”ights could leave earlier around 6 a.m. Thats an Allegiant decision,Ž said Miller. And, PGD has also requested the U.S. Transportation Security Administration open another security lane at the airport. With earlier ”ights, earlier passenger arrivals, and additional security lanes, Miller said the waits could be reduced. She added public education is important. Passengers can check PGDs website to see how busy it should be before their ”ights and are encouraged by PGD to arrive early: www.”ypgd. com/arrivals/departures/ At least a few other cities also have longer than normal wait times at security checkpoints, according to Allegiant. Those include: Orlando Sanford International Airport, Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport and Phoenix…Mesa Gateway Airport.

Its not healthy for them to be breathing in the smell of dead “sh.Ž Its the same thing that happened to Amy Creswell and her daughters Elise and Olivia. We are from Michigan and are here visiting my grandmother who lives near Warm Mineral Springs,Ž said Amy, who tried to “nd if there was red tide along the beaches by doing a Google search. I didnt see any red tide warnings, so I headed to Venice Beach because its too hot to go into the springs (day spa which is 87-degrees year round). We only made it a few minutes at Venice Beach before the smell from the red tide was overpowering. Then we came here and its not much better. Theres no way we can be out there, its not healthy.Ž Elise, 10, said seeing so many dead “sh was a little gross, especially as she tried to eat lunch. Some of them dont have any eyes,Ž she said. The dead “sh are falling apart along the beach.Ž Olivia, 12, agreed. Its very stinky,Ž she said. You can smell it almost immediately as you are getting out of the car.Ž According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a patchy bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, is lingering in Southwest Florida at places including Manasota Beach, Casey Key, Lido and Siesta Key, Caspersen Beach, Crescent Beach, Little Sarasota Bay, Nokomis Beach, Service Beach, Venice Beach, Venice North Jetty. In Charlotte County theres Gasparilla Sound. In Lee County, there is Boca Grande, Gasparilla Island Range Lighthouse, and Little Gasparilla Pass. Mote Marine Laboratory also reported last week that red tide is creating intense respiratory irritationŽ at Manasota Beach. There were reports of moderate irritation reported at Venice Beach, Venice North Jetty, Siesta Key, Nokomis, Venice Beach and Gasparilla Island Range Light (Boca Grande). Many dead “sh were reported at Venice North Jetty, Manasota Beach, Nokomis and Gasparilla Island. Saturday morning, about 80 dead “sh washed up at Englewood Beach. This is a way of life if you live in Florida,Ž said Melaine Hobbs, a lifelong Englewood resident. Its worse on Boca Grande right now.Ž Hobbs and her friend Pat Cooper, of northern Ireland, who lived in Rotonda for 20 years, lounged in beach chairs just 400 feet away from a giant snook. It washed up and had ”ies buzzing around it. I was trying to “gure out where I could put it so it wasnt on the shoreline,Ž Hobbs joked. I dont understand why someone doesnt come out and remove them.Ž Cooper said the stench wasnt as bad on Englewood Beach as it was on Boca Grande all last week. You cant even go to the bank without coughing,Ž she said. We (Hobbs and Cooper) work on Boca Grande, and its been bad. But it is a part of living in paradise. It could be stinky and bad one day and completely clear the next.Ž Usually busy nearby restaurants and bars along Englewood Beach saw few outdoor diners as the easterly winds blew the smell inland. Red tide was bad last year,Ž said four-year Englewood resident Deborah Charles. We are only a couple of days into summer and we are experiencing red tide earlier than last year. If you dont have upper respiratory problems, then you will be okay. But if you do, stay away. You can check it online before you come and are disappointed by the smell. It does eventually go away.ŽEmail: eallen@sun-herald.com Red tide and dead fish dampen beach funBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR The Taylor family, Lauren, Myah, 10, Ayanah, 6, Jaylah, 8, and Alinah, 5, packed up their buckets, snacks and noodles and left Englewood Beach Saturday shortly after arriving from North Port due to the red tide and dead sh.SUN PHOTOS BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHWhile some enjoyed the water at Englewood Beach, others stayed away due to the stench of dead sh caused by red tide.

So that means physicians who perform abortions, such as Dr. Ali Azima „ who until recently had of“ces in both Charlotte and Lee counties „ could not report the number of abortions he performed in each county. All of them were lumped into Lee County. According to Azimas of“ce, the doctor performed 129 abortions in Charlotte County in 2017 and a few dozen so far this year „ despite AHCAs numbers showing none. The agency is in the process of evaluating the data that is being posted and anticipates updating reports in the near future,Ž said Coleman. According to AHCA, doctors performing abortions county-bycounty is not public record, but the number of facilities that are deemed to be abortion clinicsŽ are. Charlotte County has none of those listed. Sarasota and Lee counties each have two, and Tampas Hillsborough County has six. Dr. Azima is now just practicing out of the Charlotte County office he owns, since a lease for a North Fort Myers office he had rented for years was not renewed. A nurse at Azimas practice, Sally Azima, explained frequent antiabortion protesting that occurred near the North Fort Myers location was upsetting customers of a store nearby, which threatened to leave if Dr. Azima did not. Dr. Azima said he believes the longstanding protests are a form of stalking. About 20 years ago, Dr. Azima requested protection from law enforcement from protesters but was shut down by a former sheriff who served in Lee and Charlotte counties, John J. McDougall. The New York Times reported on the controversy, which noted McDougall responded to Dr. Azimas request by saying he would carry out a duty to protect a baby killer.Ž But McDougall also noted he would protect the anti-abortion protesters as they tried to help misguided mothers.Ž Dr. Azima said he believes the government continues to push aside the rights of patients and doctors. According to Berdeaux, stalking carries evil intentions.Ž She said the people standing near Dr. Azimas practice have good intentions and want to help. These are Godloving, baby-loving people who want to bring attention to the public that this is not the only answer,Ž said Berdeaux. Theres other ways they can be helped. You dont need to destroy a child.Ž Dr. Azima shared a letter received after the McDougall incident, where a woman „ whose name was redacted for con“dentiality „ said she was appalled at the comments of sheriff McDougall.Ž There are many people thankful for your work,Ž the woman wrote. While I regret that I ever needed one, I have been very grateful for the opportunities the abortion gave me. I was able to “nish school, travel the world and now am a happily married mother. You are truly helping people every day. Thank you for continuing this dif“cult job.Ž Charlotte County resident SabrinaŽ „ who requested her last name be withheld out of concern people will look her up and call me terribleŽ „ had an abortion in Naples due to a medical issue affecting her health in 2012. She said she regrets it, thinks often about it and wishes she had gotten a second opinion on her health. Sabrina, 27, who overcame a drug addiction and lost other children to foster care and adoption, said she was subjected to protesters in Collier County. When women enter a clinic, their mind is already set, according to Sabrina, who is pro-choice and does not want to ever have another abortion. Your body, your right,Ž she said. Staff at a Planned Parenthood Clinic protected Sabrina with an umbrella from protesters „ who she said called her a murderer.Ž Sabrina said she doesnt support any protesting outside clinics. I do enough to myself regretting it,Ž said Sabrina. I dont need others.Ž Sabrina traveled from another state for her abortion. Some women travel for abortions and may need to take time off work, and arrange childca re, or transportation, according to information from Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, which has a goal of ensuring people have access to care without judgment or shame. For example, through April, more people from out-of-state had traveled into Florida to have abortions „ than the combined number of residents from Charlotte, Sarasota and Lee counties who had abortions throughout Florida, according to AHCA numbers obtained by the Sun Pro-life advocate, Pam Stenzels mother was raped. She doesnt know either birth parent, and though legal abortion would not have been an option at the time, Stenzel is grateful to her birth mother and was ultimately adopted into a loving family. I think we need to recognize the person-hood of the child,Ž said Stenzel, who is senior regional clinic director for Community Pregnancy Clinics Inc., which has provided outreach at some Charlotte County churches and has a location in Sarasota County. Does a mothers right to happiness usurp the right of a child to live?Ž Through early May in Florida, 18,169 elective abortions had occurred. In addition to that, there were 4,005 attributed to social or economic reasons. Just four involved incest, 34 were associated with rape, 188 for fetal defects or abnormalities, and 33 life-endangering conditions for the mother prompted abortions, according to AHCA. Lets love women and empower women enough that abortion is unthinkable,Ž said Stenzel. Sabrina said she doesnt believe unwanted pregnancy or abortion will ever disappear, but hopes people will be safe and educatedŽ if they choose to have one. She has a baby now with her partner, and said she is grateful for help they have received through Pregnancy Careline Center in Charlotte County, which has assisted them with material needs, job coaching and more.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comABORTIONFROM PAGE 1NUMBER OF ABORTIONS€ These are reported abortions by provider county: YEARLOCATIONNUMBER **2018 YTD Florida 23,040 Charlotte 0 Sarasota400 Lee 652 Hillsborough 2,617 DeSoto 0 Dade4,960 Polk 326 **2017 Florida 68,935 Charlotte0 Sarasota 1,357 Lee 2,072 Hillsborough 7,766 DeSoto0 Dade 15,020 Polk 821 2016 Florida69,770 Charlotte 143 Sarasota 1,423 Lee 1,788 Hillsborough7,180 DeSoto not listed Dade 15,152 Polk 803 2015 Florida 72,023 Charlotte 173 Sarasota 1,500 Lee2,065 Hillsborough 6,980 DeSoto not listed Dade 15,051 Polk1,309 € These are reported abortions by select patient county of residence: YEAR LOCATION NUMBER 2018 YTD Charlotte 84 Lee 539 Polk 488 Dade4,775 Highlands 42 Hillsborough 1,728 Sarasota 235 Out-of-state1,168 **In 2017, AHCA updated its reporting system and physicians performing abortions in more than one location (not including hospitals and abortion clinics) reported as a single physician provider and not specific to the location(s) where the abortions were performed.

WADE410 U.S. 113 (1973), established a womans right to have an abortion without undue restrictive interference from the government. The Court held that a womans right to decide for herself to bring or not bring a pregnancy to term is guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment. A Texas law prohibiting abortions had been challenged by an unmarried pregnant woman (Roe) and the court ruled in her favor, finding that the state had violated her right to privacy. In attempting to balance the states rights against the rights of the individual, Justice Harry A. Blackmun held that the states legitimate interest in protecting potential life increased as the pregnancy advanced. While allowing that the state may forbid abortions during the third trimester, Blackmun wrote that a woman is entitled to obtain an abortion freely, after consultation with a doctor, in the first trimester and in an authorized clinic in the second trimester.Ž „ Source: Merriam-Webster Dictionary NEW SUPREME COURT ABORTION DECISIONIn one of the latest antiabortion victories for conservatives and major defeat for the rights of women, the Supreme Court recently allowed Arkansas to put in effect restrictions on how abortion pills are administered. Critics of a challenged state law say it could effectively end medication abortions in the state. The legal fight over the law is not over, but for the time being, the state is now free to enforce the law, which is supported by evangelicals. Planned Parenthood has said that if the law stands, Arkansas would be the only state where women would not have access to a pair of drugs that end pregnancies: mifepristone, which makes it difficult for a fetus to attach to the uterine wall, and misoprostol, which causes the body to expel it, similar to a miscarriage. The decision is the latest in a political assault on reproductive freedoms led by President Donald Trump, who has increasingly pushed for rules making it more difficult for women to receive abortions and been heavily campaigning on the topic since May. Before his switch to the Republican Party, he had described himself as very pro-choice.Ž Iowas governor last month signed legislation prohibiting nearly all abortions in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, making it the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation and a potential test to 1973s Roe v. Wade decision. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said he would sign such a law as Florida Republican governor if elected. The Democratic Party described him as an anti-choice extremist.Ž „ Source: Associated Press, Fox News, Orlando Sentinel The door to longtime local Dr. Ali Azimas oce in Port Charlotte shows a security camera above the door in May.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS For Americans growing up between the 1950s and the 1980s, religion was not a regular presence on television. Aside from Sunday morning shows or occasional commercials, religious programming issued end-time warnings, sought monetary contributions, or staged faith healings. But it did not cover news. Today is different, however. Not only are there entire networks devoted to religious broadcasting, but also Christian television has moved directly into covering news and politics, reaching millions of Americans daily with a conservative perspective on current events. As a scholar of religion and politics in America, I believe it is important to understand the impact of the medium at this point of time as well as how it came to have such in”uence.The growth of Christian mediaAmerican Christians have historically used new media to spread the gospel. In the 19th century, evangelicals used pamphlets and advertising techniques. The early 20th century produced a religious radio subculture that is still thriving in programs like the ones offered by Focus on the Family or Moody Radio. By the early 1950s, preachers like Fulton Sheen, Robert Schuller or Billy Graham took to television. While there was occasionally a political overtone to these programs, most of them refrained from explicit commentary. This changed beginning in the 1970s, in large part, because of two related political trends: One, since the late 1970s, largely fundamentalist Protestant organizations like the Moral Majority took to popularizing Christian conservatism. These organizations rallied national support to in”uence politicians to oppose abortion rights and the Equal Rights Amendment, among other causes. Two, around the same time, beginning with Ronald Reagans presidency, conservative politicians started to harness evangelicals as a voting bloc. As a result, many of these politicians began paying closer attention to Christian media for indications of this blocs concerns. This gave Christian media further in”uence in the political world.The televangelistsThe above political changes were re”ected in the rapid growth of Christian shows on cable television. Pat Robertsons longstanding talk show The 700 Club,Ž the end-times prophecy show Jack Van Impe PresentsŽ and others began to address what was happening in the news from a Biblical perspective. They claimed they were providing viewers with realŽ explanations that media and liberal politicians covered up. These shows also reinforced conservative talking points as objective facts. It is true that during this period, American televangelistsŽ experienced several withering scandals. Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, for example, was discovered with a prostitute, and televangelist Jim Bakker was convicted of fraud. This led some scholars to suggest that religious television went undergroundŽ because of this disrepute. On the contrary, as the data shows, religious broadcasting grew hugely in the 1990s and 2000s. Christian media increasingly commented on current events. And, critically, it began to have an in”uence on the wider culture. For example, from the mid-1990s, popular “lms and novels like Left BehindŽ suggested that viewers with the wrongŽ religious or political beliefs would suffer damnation. Such “lms and literature attracted tens of millions of viewers and readers. Furthermore, Christian media was used to advance conservative biases. Authors and advocates of textbooks and curricula, for example, downplayed the womens movement in American history or referred to slavery as involuntary immigration.Ž Such changes were adopted in some Christian schools and their authors were often featured in Christian media. Even when the in”uence was indirect, the media, schools and entertainment mutually reinforced each others ideas. There is considerable evidence, then, of the connections between evangelical media broadly speaking, Christian news speci“cally, and a conservative Republican base that sought steady support and advocacy from it.Why this mattersThe power of these programs is more than simply the stories covered or guests interviewed „ it is their social impact on religious beliefs. Christian news is effective in conveying its views because it repeats claims that viewers already believe, and provides them with particular emotional experiences that are described as facts. This way of viewing the world has moved closer to the center of conservative politics since the 1980s, a period of time when the Christian right acquired more in”uence in American politics. The themes central to Christian television were more consistently those of the Republican Party. Consider how in the 1980s, Ronald Reagan began to be depicted as Gods agent on Earth. In the 1990s, the growth of multinational corporations and trade deals was decried as part of a demonic new world order.Ž And today, when Islamophobia is on the rise, Christian television channels depict and celebrate President Trump as the “ghter-in-chief, who defends Christians despite his personal faults. These attitudes are re”ected in the contemporary news programs themselves. For example, Robert Jeffress of Dallas First Baptist Church has called Islam a false religionŽ that is demonically inspired. Such claims have been widespread since September 11, 2001, but on Jeffress Pathway to VictoryŽ program, with an audience estimated in the millions, they are given a vast reach without the facts of Islam ever being addressed. Further, Christian Broadcasting Network news regularly features stories about Christians persecuted in Turkey or India. While such persecution clearly does occur in places across the world, it is often cited by CBN and other outlets to support the idea that American Christians are censored or otherwise embattled by liberalism or secularism.Amplifying one view?The growing regularity of such examples has signi“cant implications for American politics. First, assertions that religious liberty is being violated around the world are put out endlessly in what I call the resonance chamber of American public life,Ž in which repetition, aided by social media, helps claims to achieve legitimacy. Second, stories on the Christian news channels are constantly tailored to the idea that viewers are being persecuted. By presenting itself as authoritative, trustworthy journalism, Christian news reassures viewers that they do not need to consult mainstream media in order to be informed. More dangerously, it authorizes a particular, often conspiratorial way of viewing the world. It denounces neutrality or accountability to multiple constituencies as burdensome or even hostile to Christian faith. Sadly, tens of millions of its viewers are left without a sense of two of democracys most necessary foundations: the value of multiple viewpoints and shared political participation. Jason C.

The vast majority of the time the content is of little interest but, today, a letter from Englewood succinctly summed up everything I have been saying about our educational system in every state (seven of them) I have lived in. There is a management problem, not a teaching or money problem. Teachers should be paid more, much more. But the money is already there. Get rid of the useless, bureaucratic layers of management out in place by many politicians over many years. Pare down to the root. Let individual school principals and individual teachers manage their schools like individual businesses and you will see amazing results. The beauty of this approach is that each school could be individually responsible for its results. Have a problem? Change the leadership at that school. Without the extra expenses associated with county education departments, teachers salaries could be doubled with money already in our budget. Education effectiveness would rise. Teachers unions would be unnecessary. What are we waiting for? Gregg Higgins North PortEditor: Are the people in San Diego building the wall, being paid in pesos?Jerry Mitchell Port Charlottemurders suspected rivals „ as very talented, worthy, honorable, and one who loves his people.Ž He minimized Kims human rights violations, including against Americans, saying, Yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done some really bad things.Ž He praised Putin, who invades his neighbors with impunity, runs a kleptocracy, sends murder squads to England, routinely kills his rivals and attacks our elections as getting and AŽ for leadership and bright and talented.Ž Hes done an amazing job,Ž gushed Trump. When confronted with Putins murderous reign, he said, I think our country does plenty of killing also,Ž implying a moral equivalency. Despite Putins record, Trump wants Russia readmitted to the G-7. He said Chinas Xi did something great for making himself president for life. When a Chinese company was caught spying on the U.S., it was quickly smoothed over by a $500 million infusion into a Trump property. Trump lauded the Philippines Duterte, who justi“ed killing journalists and who has murdered thousands of his citizens without trials. Trump treats thugs with deference and scolds allies like they are lazy employees. He described Canadas Trudeau as weakŽ and dishonestŽ and he lied about the U.S./Canada trade surplus, calling it a de“cit. He attacked the leaders of France, Germany, Australia and England as if they were enemies rather than friends. Trumps allies are not Americas allies.Tom Butler Port CharlotteEditor: Trump praised Kim Jong Un „ who starves his people, imprisons three generations for one persons violations, and Editor: The liberally biased The ConversationŽ on June 18 departs common sense and soars into outer space regarding women voting. The methodology begins in a ”awed question and rockets through the analytic stratosphere into pure palaver. The authors used data from the American National Election Study ƒ (when) ƒ women were asked: Do you think that what happens generally to women in this country will have something to do with what happens in your life?Ž Vague question! My sociology, biology and business professors insisted that research needs to ask questions so that what comes back can be understood. As I “rst read that question today, I took it to probe whether what happens in my life can change what happens in other womens lives. Ive worked for 25 years as a volunteer at the Healthcare Businesswomens Association toward the mission of advancing the impact of women in health care. Silly me, I didnt interpret the question as a victim would. In the step described next: Those who answered yes were then asked to report the extent to which what happens to others affects them. (They) used this measure to identify gender-linked fate, or the extent to which women see their futures as tied to those of other women.Ž This adds mud to muddy analytic water. What happened to the women who answered noŽ to the “rst question? All that follows has been sliced and diced out of the 2,000 women in 2012 who all, no doubt, interpreted the “rst question individually.Anne Camille Talley Punta GordaEditor: I urge the readers of this newspaper to ask their U.S. senators to support bringing the CREATES Act (S. 974) to the Senate ”oor and to vote yes for its passage. The Senate Judiciary committee passed Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples (CREATES) Act by a 16 to 5 vote on June 14. It targets abusive delay tactics that are being used by brand-name pharmaceutical companies to block market entry of more affordable generic drugs. The “rst delay tactic addressed by the CREATES Act is when brand-name drug companies prevent potential generic competitors from obtaining samples of the branded product, so the generic company cannot perform the testing necessary to show that its product is equivalent to the brand-name product, a prerequisite for FDA approval. The second delay tactic addressed by the CREATES Act occurs when brand-name manufacturers, whose products require a distribution safety protocol, refuse to allow generic competitors to participate in that safety protocol, again undermining the generics ability to gain FDA approval. The CREATES Act is intended to provide an ef“cient path for generic drug manufacturers to obtain relief so they can continue working to bring their lower-cost product to market. The Congressional Budget Of“ce (CBO) estimates that passage of the CREATES Act will result in a $3.3 billion net decrease in the federal de“cit and the savings to Americans is likely to be far greater.Dale Jensen Rotonda WestFuture planning needed for Polk water, not lawsuitOUR POSITION: There are long-term solutions to getting more water for Polk County homeowners and businesses and a much-discussed lawsuit would only hinder, not expedite, them. A myriad of agencies, government entities and individuals have been scrambling for a solution to Polk Countys water woes for weeks now. So far, no magic pill has been found to calm fears that the area is slowly running out of water while the Peace River Regional Water Authority is preparing a plan to pump millions more gallons out of the Peace River to fill a planned reservoir in DeSoto County. That plan has fostered threats of a lawsuit from people in Polk County who feel coastal counties are getting more than their share of water. As we wrote earlier, a lawsuit is useless and counter productive. First of all, neither the Polk Regional Water Cooperative, Polk County government nor the Peace River Regional Water Authority has the money to fund what could end up being nearly a million-dollar litigation „ although the water authority is better prepared to take on that expense. Secondly, and most important, the water that would be taken to fill another reservoir here is headed for the Gulf of Mexico. The water is far downstream from Polk. I am scratching my head how this (new permit for DeSoto County) would impact (Polk),Ž Lehman said in a meeting with the Suns editorial board. So, lets forget the lawsuit. Lets plan on water from the Peace River being taken to fill another reservoir for thirsty coastal residents. Where does that leave our friends in Polk County? We propose, for starters, that a water summit is in order. It should include representatives from the PRWC, the Water Authority, Southwest Florida Water Management District (known as Swiftmud) and elected officials in Polk County who believe a lawsuit is the answer. Plans and ideas could be exchanged. Perhaps Polk would even leave with plans to file for a permit to build its own reservoir, to be filled by stormwater. The Peace River is too weak to be pumped into Polk County as it is further downstream when it turns into a mighty river just before emptying into the Gulf. Other solutions to beef up Polks water supply could include tougher requirements on conservation. Maybe using gray water for irrigation or limiting the days lawns can be watered could make a difference. And, if Polk feels slighted, and so desires, discussions could begin to some day apply for membership in the Water Authority. Lehman has said his board would be open to at least discuss the possibility. And, if that ever happens, Polk would have a voice where it now feels shut out. What is obvious, is that no lawsuit is needed. Responsible people can come together to work out a long-term plan for Polk while continuing to prepare for the growth along Floridas Gulf Coast. A lawsuit is a no-win situation „ and a costly one for taxpayers.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINTWEEK IN REVIEW Amid the carnage of Republican misrule in Washington, there is this glimmer of good news: The family-shredding policy along the southern border, which was merely the most telegenic recent example of misrule, clari“ed something. Occurring less than 140 days before elections that can reshape Congress, the policy has given independents and temperate Republicans „ these are probably expanding and contracting cohorts, respectively „ fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which they should vote. The principle is: The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of the Constitutions Article I powers that they have been too invertebrate to use against the current wielder of Article II powers. They will then have leisure time to wonder why they worked so hard to achieve membership in a legislature whose unexercised muscles have atrophied because of people like them. Consider the melancholy example of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who wagered his dignity on the patently false proposition that it is possible to have sustained transactions with todays president, this Vesuvius of mendacities, without being degraded. In Robert Bolts play A Man for All Seasons,Ž Thomas More, having angered Henry VIII, is on trial for his life. When Richard Rich, who More had once mentored, commits perjury against More in exchange for the of“ce of attorney general for Wales. More says: Why, Richard, it pro“ts a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world ... But for Wales!Ž Ryan traded his political soul for ... a tax cut. He who formerly spoke truths about the accelerating crisis of the entitlement system lost everything in the service of a president pledged to preserve the unsustainable status quo. Ryan and many other Republicans have become the presidents poodles, not because James Madisons system has failed but because todays abject careerists have failed to be worthy of it. As Madison explained it in Federalist 51: Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place.Ž Congressional Republicans (congressional Democrats are equally supine toward Democratic presidents) have no higher ambition than to placate this president. By leaving dormant the powers inherent in their institution, they vitiate the Constitutions vital principle, the separation of powers. Recently Sen. Bob Corker, the Tennessee Republican who is retiring, became an exception that illuminates the depressing rule. He proposed a measure by which Congress could retrieve a small portion of the policymaking power that it has, over many decades and under both parties, improvidently delegated to presidents. Congress has done this out of sloth and timidity „ to duck hard work and risky choices. Corkers measure would have required Congress to vote to approve any trade restrictions imposed in the name of national security.Ž All Senate Republicans worthy of the conservative label that all Senate Republicans ”aunt would privately admit that this is conducive to sound governance and true to the Constitutions structure. But the Senate would not vote on it „ would not allow it to become just the second amendment voted on this year. This is because the amendment would have peeved the easily peeved president. The Republicancontrolled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of Republican control. The Trump whisperer regarding immigration is Stephen Miller, 32, whose ascent to eminence began when he became the Savonarola of Santa Monica High School. Corey Lewandowski, a Trump campaign of“cial who fell from the kings grace but is crawling back (he works for Mike Pences political action committee), recently responded on Fox News to the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome taken from her parents at the border. Lewandowski replied: Wah, wah.Ž Meaningless noise is this administrations appropriate libretto because, just as a magnet attracts iron “lings, Trump attracts, and is attracted to, louts. In todays GOP, which is the presidents plaything, he is the mainstream. So, to vote against his partys cowering congressional caucuses is to af“rm the nations honor while quarantining him. A Democratic-controlled Congress would be a basket of deplorables, but there would be enough Republicans to gum up the Senates machinery, keeping the institution as peripheral as it has been under their control, and asphyxiating mischief from a Democratic House. And to those who say, But the judges, the judges!Ž the answer is: Article III institutions are not more important than those of Articles I and II combined. George Wills email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.This November, vote against the GOP George Will Is there a psychiatrist in the house? Like so many Americans, this columnist longs for the voice of another, the great and good Charles Krauthammer, who died last week, leaving us mortals to plod through the darkness without the light of his reasoned guidance. A revered Washington Post colleague, Krauthammer was a psychiatrist as well as a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, a rare embodiment of exquisite logic and philosophical insight, as well as a wordsmith of enviable skill. Although I penned my tribute to the man while he was still living, he inevitably came to mind as I perused the morning mail and wondered about the extreme disconnect between how people have viewed the border crisis these past few weeks. Though he never played the psychiatrist card, Krauthammer surely must have taken into account the psychological dimensions and rami“cations of a given issue. It would be nearly remiss not to, given todays ever-more partisan and tribal ways. To wit: The crying child. Most have seen the photo of a 2-year-old child sobbing as her mother is being patted down by a Border Patrol agent. This image, which would touch anyones heart, became an instant viral infestation,Ž to borrow the presidents term for the migrant ”ow, and it quickly shifted the border debate from one of urgency to near hysteria. Lets just say coifs are a”ame. For Democrats, the quintessential photo provided the ultimate bunker buster for the mid-term battles ahead. For Republicans, it was merely further evidence of the Fake News empire striking, yet again. The profanely unwise Ann Coulter even suggested that such children were actors trained by liberals. Next came Time magazines newest cover, a powerful illustration showing the tiny tot standing alone before a looming President Trump, with the caption: Welcome to America.Ž During the small window between the photos global debut and the Time cover, fresh information surfaced clarifying that the child, though clearly upset, was not ultimately separated from her mother, as many would have inferred. You could practically hear the Yahoos!Ž from the Oval Of“ce to the Fox News headquarters. For the rest of the world, the image remains iconic and understood as what was intended, presumably by the photographer, and surely by Time „ a human symbol of a terrible policy gone awry. The fact that this little girl wasnt taken away from her mother „ hallelujah „ doesnt erase all the others who have been separated, nor does it alter the reality of suffering imposed on so many migrant families. It does remind us, in the case of the photograph, that captions should be as complete as possible. Pictures are more powerful than a thousand words, to be sure, but journalism standards require as much accompanying information as we can get. In the viral social media world, this doesnt always happen. As for Time, an illustration, like a cartoon, isnt meant to be taken literally. It is, after all, a “gurative representation. Whatever the fallout, the photo served a noble purpose in helping organize peoples outrage, no doubt leading Trump to issue an executive order Wednesday to end the separation abuse. Unfortunately, the image of this poor, innocent child will be used by both sides to advance political purposes. Meanwhile, 2,300 children already have been separated and housed, who-knows-where? In at least some cases, of“cialdom hasnt a clue. This should be appalling to anyone with a heartbeat, but guess what? It isnt. The disconnect mentioned earlier is con“rmed both by my mailbag and by recent polling that shows up to 58 percent of Republicans supported the separation policy, while two-thirds of Americans overall did not. This data is re”ected in letters from which two clear perspectives emerge: One, the crying child is an obvious metaphor for a terrible policy; two, this particular child was not separated from her mother and, therefore, everything else reported from the border can be dismissed as liberal/ Marxist propaganda. As a charitable concession commensurate with the moment, lets assume that anyone can entertain the following two thoughts at once: It is possible to both honor the law and other peoples basic human rights. Yes, of course, the migrating parents are responsible for bringing their young children to the border without documentation, but theirs is a sin born mostly of desperation; ours is a sin of volition, lacking even ordinary logic or a philosophy of compassion, both of which are today in scarcer supply with the departure of one Dr. Krauthammer.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 at the family level. Every family has members with different needs. As a parent, you love all your children equally, but certain children need more of your time and potentially more of your money than other children. Even perhaps in your will, you struggle with how to allocate money. Do I give more of my money to the successful child who will do more good with it and make the money multiply? Do I give money to all of my children equally? Do I give more of my money to the child that needs it the most? What is the appropriate definition of equal? My guess is, like me, you too have Socialist and perhaps even Communist leanings when it concerns your family. The gift Nassim Taleb gave me was the understanding that I, and most Americans, each carry Libertarian, Republican, Democrat and Socialist leanings within us. Each person I meet likely is not simply only a Democrat or a Republican. We are a mix of all four philosophies. Nassim helped me understand that the idea of individualism versus collectivism is actually just a spectrum. Most of us will embrace individualism or collectivism based on how close the other persons need is to what we consider family. If you are in the Sudan, expect parental Tough Love from Americans. If the need is for someone in the immediate blood family, we may talk about the need for Tough Love, but we will likely act as Communists or Socialists. Somewhere, in the federal to city space that lies between family and foreigners, most of us end up center-left or center-right. The national parties try to force our four-part philosophy into just one box „ their own. But most of us Americans are four parts. We dont want us, or our country, to always be forced into a single box. Share your thoughts. You can contact David at daviddr@sun-herald. com .DAVIDFROM PAGE 1 score used for the final rankings.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSWith hurricane season in full swing, seawall reconstruction is still ongoing with the anticipation of completion around the end of 2019 to the beginning of 2020, according to the city. While this endpoint seems far off, the city is making progress in its repairs to the regions seawalls. Marine Contracting Group will be replacing damaged seawalls in Burnt Store Isles in the fall which has been divided into BSI North and BSI South. MCG has submitted a schedule to start work in the BSI-S section beginning Oct. 1. The city is planning a workshop prior to that date to answer any questions for the seawall replacements in BSI. Residents will have the opportunity to speak with Punta Gorda Canal Maintenance employees. As of this report, the contractors have poured 250 panels for a total of 6,605 seawall panels to date. Roughly 10,000 seawall panels are needed to repair damage from Irma. Crews have “lled 43 depressions in Punta Gorda Isles. Work is underway in six PGI zones and Harborwalk, according to the city. We have three seawall contractors,Ž said Rick Keeney, public works director with the city. The local contractor was able to hit the ground running and is pretty much on schedule. The two contractors from out of the area are behind schedule. Time was needed for mobilization, becoming familiar with the canal system and the citys construction methods.Ž With hurricane season back for 2018, Keeney said that the city does have its concerns. The rain amounts and tide or storm surge levels are major factors in seawall failures. In Irmas case,Ž said Keeney, most of the water was removed from the harbor and canal system along with heavy rain amounts. The rain amount caused the hydrostatic pressure from the land-side to push or break the seawalls. If the water level in the canal system were to stay high, seawall failures would likely have been greatly reduced.Ž Keeney said that the city has provided erosion control for the areas being considered as high priority that will not be addressed until after July. We continue to monitor for erosion and will take corrective measures as needed,Ž said Keeney. If another hurricane hits we will do our best to respond to our citizens needs. Every hurricane is unique with its own challenges.Ž The city has also suggested that waterfront property owners avoid planting anything but grass for at least six feet back from the seawall cap, according to the citys weekly highlight report. They should also avoid placement of large trees adjacent to the seawalls. Sprinkler heads and pool water discharge should also be kept six feet away from seawall. Property owners should also allow the grass to grow halfway over the seawall cap which will help prevent rutting and allow the water to run off into the canal. The city highlighted these tips in their weekly highlights report. In the report, it is noted that the city of Punta Gorda abides by the EPAs National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System with the goal of improving water quality. The city recommends property owners avoid releasing any liquids into the canal, such as pool over”ow or drainage pipes. They also suggest owners do not paint, alter or install accessories on or through the seawall cap, such as cleats, hang conduit or discharge pipes among other options. The city has also asked boaters to watch their speed in the canals as seawall repairs continue. According to the highlight report, the city has requested that no person operate a boat in creeks canals, harbors or docking areas in a manner that would produce a wake capable of causing damage to other boats, docks, seawalls, shorelines or other property by wash or erosion. As of this report, there was no update as far as any funding from FEMA for the seawall replacement. We continue to supply requested documentation and information as requested (to FEMA),Ž said Keeney.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSTwo suspects were arrested Wednesday after a Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce K-9 alerted to narcotics during a traf“c stop. A deputy stopped the v ehicle for several traf“c violations in Port Charlotte and observed suspicious interaction between the driver, later identi“ed as Justin Atwood, 30, and a passenger, Joseph OBrien, 36. Atwood provided a Florida Identi“cation Card and stated he did not possess a drivers license, according to a CCSO press release. He denied ownership of anything inside the vehicle and refused consent to search it. K-9 Ladybird conducted a free air sniff around the vehicle, alerting to the presence of narcotics. Ladybird is certi“ed through the United States Police Canine Association to detect the odors of marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, MDMA, and cocaine. During a search of the vehicle, a black backpack was located on the passenger side ”oorboard, bearing the name Peenutt,Ž which is OBriens nickname, the press release stated. Inside the backpack, multiple baggies were located containing a white crystal substance which tested positive for methamphetamine. Used syringes were also located on the ”oorboard. The total amount of meth found in his bag weighed approximately 9.68 grams, according to the press release. Justin Atwood was charged with driving on a suspended license, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held at the Charlotte County Jail with a $12,000 bond. Joseph OBrien was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kern Deputy Clerk Publish: June 10, 17, 24, AND July 1, 2018 395956 3586262 TALLAHASSEE „ Floridas 2018 midterm election is one of the most important in years. The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are open, Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, several congressional seats will be competitive, and Floridians will vote on 13 proposed constitutional amendments, ranging from property tax cuts to banning greyhound racing. The following are items of political interest from the past week:POT, MEET KETTLERepublican Gov. Rick Scott has relentlessly blasted Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson on the airwaves, launching ad after ad criticizing the three-term senator as a career politician. One ad compared Nelson to a Ford Pinto, a now defunct car that was popular in the 1970s. The latest attack? Nelsons too negative. An announcer says, Nelson has learned some tricks. Some cheap tricks, like attacking your opponent regardless of the facts.Ž Um. Hmm. That comes from the campaign team that repeatedly says Nelson has been in Washington half a century.Ž Sure, Nelson has spent a lot of time in D.C., but 50 years? The total is 30: 12 in the U.S. House and now 18 in the Senate.MARCH FOR MIGRANTSPresident Donald Trumps executive order ending future separations of migrant children from their parents isnt stopping the major Democratic candidates for governor from participating in a march in Homestead, where an estimated 1,000 children who entered the country illegally are being housed. Most are unaccompanied minors, but some were separated from their parents at border crossings. Former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Orlando-area businessman Chris King, and billionaire Jeff Greene all plan to participate in whats called the March to Keep Families Together. We stand against hate and we stand against divisiveness, and we stand against babies, kids, children being used as political pawns,Ž Gillum said at a press conference.CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? One of Greenes “rst television ads features video of a confrontation with then President-elect Donald Trump. It doesnt, however, include audio of the verbal exchange between the Palm Beach billionaires. Asked whether the audio will be made available, Greene said it doesnt exist. He said his wife took the video with her cellphone and was a few tables away from the confrontation. But Greene did describe the event. He just called out to me and started attacking me. He wasnt talking to me. I dont know if you know how the president sometimes works, but Donald Trump points at you and says, Jeff Greene,Ž Greene said. He was clearly unhinged and very upset at the fact that I had come out very big for Hillary (Clinton).Ž Greene said hes seen Trump around town, and he still has a Mar-a-Lago membership, but made it clear the two are not friends. Ive never had lunch or dinner with him,Ž Green said. Hes never been to my home, Ive never broken bread with him or anyone in his family.ŽNOSHOW SCOTT?This coming week Florida Republicans are going to gather in Orlando for the Republican Party of Florida Sunshine Summit. One of the highlights of the two-day event will be a televised GOP debate between Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. The two men are vying for the Republican nomination for governor. But it appears highly unlikely that Scott will attend. His campaign says a “nal decision hasnt been made, but its no secret that Scott does not enjoy a close relationship with party leaders. Scott distanced himself ever since the party picked Rep. Blaise Ingoglia as party chairman instead of the candidate backed by the governor. Another factor, however, could be the decision by the party to have conservative “lmmaker and author Dinesh DSouza as one of the speakers at the summit. In February, DSouza apologized for mocking Parkland, Florida, high school students who were upset after the Florida House voted down a proposed ban on a type of semiautomatic ri”es known as assault weapons. QUOTE OF THE WEEKThe “rst thing I should do is make a mandate „ executive order: Everyone needs to wear jeans in Tallahassee from Monday through Thursday. Then on Friday they can dress down and wear sweat pants,Ž Levine said after a reporter commented on his attire, which was jeans, sneakers and a sport coat.Negative ads, marches and more last week in Florida politicsBy BRENDAN FARRINGTON and GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESS Man charged after dog dies in hot car No charges for teens who mocked drowning man Florida gets high marks for handling of state financesSEBASTIAN (AP) „ Authorities say a dog died after its owner left it in a hot car to spend the afternoon at a Florida bar. Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that 64-year-old Harold Krages was arrested Thursday and charged with animal cruelty. Sebastian police say Krages arrived at Earls Hideaway shortly after noon Thursday. He left his dog in his car with the engine off and the windows rolled down slightly. Of“cers responded to the bar around 4 p.m. because angry patrons had learned about the dog. They brought the animal inside to the air-conditioned restroom, where it died. The National Weather Service says temperatures reached 97 degrees Thursday. COCOA, Fla. (AP) „ Five Florida teenagers will not be prosecuted after they videotaped and mocked a disabled man as he drowned and didnt help. Prosecutors told Florida Today the teens could not be prosecuted because there is no state law that requires a bystander to help or get assistance for someone who is in danger. The teens spotted 31-year-old Jamel Dunn TALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Florida is getting high marks from a major ratings agency for a sustainedŽ and robustŽ recovery from the Great Recession. Moodys Investors Services upgraded the states bond rating to AAA. Thats the highest rating the agency awards and means Florida will pay lower interest payments when it borrows money. The administration of Gov. Rick Scott said this marks the “rst time that all three major rating agencies have assigned the state their highest ratings. During his time as governor Scott has pushed to reduce Floridas total amount of debt. Moodys in a release Thursday said Florida earned the higher rating because the states economy and “nances have been consistently improving. It also noted the states low amount of debt and the health of its pension plan. | HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEstruggling in a pond last July, but instead of helping they videotaped him and then posted it online. In the video, the teens are heard laughing and yelling at Dunn, telling him that he is going to drown and that they are not going to help him.

OUR TOWN: SUNCOAST HOMES SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018 RENTALS GROWING CASH COWINTUBATION PROCESS SIMPLIFIEDNEW HOPE HOSTS VBS After Airbnb came on the scene, many local governments created ordinances mandating registration of operators and rules of conduct. Seepage 3. New Airtraq devices to help paramedics get a tube down patients throats in just 15 seconds. Seepage 7. More than 60 kids attended the weeklong program. Seepage 10. Rising interest rates have done little to sti”e home values during the “rst 5 months of this year. The median sales price (half sold for more; half for less) for Charlotte County, single-family homes rose from $200,000 to $220,000 compared to the same 5 months in 2017. Thats an impressive 10 percent gain. The number of sales increased from 1,926 homes in 2017 to 1,990 in 2018 for a gain of 3 percent. While real estate statistics are usually reported on a month-tomonth basis, this creates some wild variations in smaller counties like Charlotte. For example, the median sales price comparing April 2018 to April 2017 rose 17 percent. But the following month, May 2018, the median sales price rose just 5 percent compared to May 2017. It doesnt really make sense that in April 2018 home values rose 17 percent over the past 12 months. But just 1 month later, they were only up 5 percent during the past 12 months. Thats a good example of the wild variations we get when using a collection of data too small to produce reliable results. Of course, the solution is to use bigger data sets such as the 5-month period used above. Stock market analysts use a similar approach called rolling averagesŽ or moving averagesŽ. For instance, each day they may look at the average price during the most recent 200 days (the 200-day rolling average). The gold standard of real estate statistics, the Case-Shiller Index, uses a 3-month moving average. € € € Note: Brett reprints this every 5 years as our heavy rains launch the pothole season. Did you read the letter-to-the-editor from the lady who ran into a pothole? As she attested, running into a pothole can cost nearly as much as a minor fender bender. So, lets come up with a strategy for avoiding the pitfalls of potholes. You have probably noticed there has been a recent surge of potholes. According to Alan Holbach, Charlotte Countys public works director, potholes are directly correlated to the age of a road and the amount of rain that falls on it. Most folks avoid potholes by driving around them. One problem with this strategy is that this is not always an option. If there is a car in front of you, you may not see the hole until it is too late. The same applies if it is nightfall. Or if rainwater has “lled the pothole. I addressed this subject in my 09/05/05 column. I recounted how I became frustrated that the county sometimes took months to “ll a pothole. That could easily add up to hundreds of tire alignments for unfortunate drivers. Worse, they could be lethal for motorcyclists. So, one day I called the public works department to complain. The clerk cut me short. She asked me for the location and told me she would dispatch a repair crew. Two days later, every pothole I had reported was “xed. I had assumed the county hires workers to drive the streets searching for potholes. That wasnt my brightest moment. That came when I programmed the number for reporting potholes into my cellphone. Since that day, I have called in over 100 potholes and received the same great service every time. And its quite nice to think about the hundreds, maybe thousands of drivers, that I may have saved from tire alignments. So, the best way to avoid potholes is to report them. In Charlotte County, call 941-575-3600, then press 1. The best way to avoid potholes is to make them go away. And youll be doing us all a favor. € € € Question : Thank you for your recent article on replacing the yellowed panels on overhead, kitchen ”uorescent lighting. My home was built in the early nineties and I have the same problem. However, after much searching I cannot “nd anything similar on the net. How can I “nd these panels? Thanks. Answer : I got mine at the Englewood Home Depot store. They have a large assortment of panels in various sizes. Brett Slattery is broker/owner of Brett Slattery Realty llc in Charlotte County.

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 2 South Florida real estate agent Sara Dorfman hit the jackpot this month when she arranged the sale of a multi-unit complex in Fort Lauderdales Victoria Park for $1.65 million. The chief selling point: The property was set up for vacation home rentals. And the buyer is eager to continue that business. We see more investors who are looking to do things this way,Ž said Dorfman, who works for Native Realty. I call them the savvy investors.Ž On a grander scale, home sharing is becoming an attractive option for South Florida developers who are installing liberal rental programs for would-be residential owners, including partnerships with Airbnb, the third-party booking company, and Pillow, a short-term rental management service that serves as property manager and listing expert for residents. Historically speaking, a lot of people have had their second homes here since before the internet,Ž said Tom Martinelli, public policy manager for Airbnb in the Southeast. If its a home or in a multi-family building, owners are getting smart to optimize their assetŽ so they can retire earlier or make additional income. Developers are seeing these trends and catering to this market as well,Ž Martinelli said. But traditional hotel operators take a dim view of the home-sharing phenomenon, particularly through the increased use of multiunit properties. They assert that the business distorts the playing “eld in the favor of Airbnb and its homeowner partners. Home sharing, they argue, has ballooned into a full-blown, multimillion dollar business, and is no longer just a side hustle for moms and pops in search of extra income. These are not people bringing someone into their spare bedroom to make a few extra bucks,Ž said Troy Flanagan, vice president of government affairs/industry relations for the American Hotel and Lodging Association. Youre seeing the conversion of residential quality of life into a tourist hotel,Ž he said. Thats something the local governments have to take a close look at.Ž A 13-city study by the hotels arm of CBRE, a national real estate services “rm, leaves no doubt that the homeshare business is booming, driven in large part by multi-unit residential complexes. The study „ which included Miami and tracked the numbers of hosts, units and revenue between October 2014 and September 2016 „ found that revenue generated year over year by Airbnb hosts almost doubled in 2016. And the multi-unit hosts were the fastest growing segment of the business in terms of numbers of hosts, units and revenue generated in 2016, the study found. Hoteliers argue that many home-share operators dont register with their cities as required, dont collect and pay tourist and sales taxes, and dont follow rules of the road set by local governments. But Airbnb says it is making a proactive effort to collect taxes through agreements it has struck with counties and states. On June 8, it announced that it delivered more than $12 million in tax revenue to Broward and Miami-Dade counties during the “rst year of tax collection agreements with both jurisdictions. The agreements were signed in April 2017. Palm Beach County does not have a collection agreement with Airbnb. Around the country, some local governments are taking drastic actions against home-share operators. Last week, the Boston City Council voted to forbid investors from engaging in home sharing, triggering a bitter rebuke from Airbnb. The new ordinance unfortunately creates a system that violates the privacy of our hosts, and prevents Boston families from making much-needed extra income in one of the countrys most expensive cities,Ž said Airbnb spokeswoman Crystal Davis in a statement. After Airbnb came on the scene, many local governments created ordinances mandating the registration of operators and rules of conduct. Miami Beach is looking to impose tougher requirements on how properties are advertised. Fort Lauderdale is considering additions to an existing code that governs vacation rentals. According to the city, the majority of complaints received by its staff stem from noise, parking and the number of people who occupy rental units at any given time. In a set of recommendations issued last month, the staff urged that the maximum number of occupants approved by the city should be included in vacation rental lease agreements. It also recommended that guests of rental occupants be required to leave the premises by 9 p.m., or go indoors. The commission has yet to act on the recommendations. South Florida developers who allow multi-unit owners to engage in short-term leasing say there is a rising demand for home-sharing among owners. Besides, they say, their partnerships with Airbnb actually ensure that local rules are followed and that taxes are collected. David Arditi, founding principal of Aria Development Group, developer of the YotelPad project, said his high-rises home-sharing option is an outgrowth of Miamis diversity. We acknowledged that, especially in downtown Miami, a large part of the ownership universe is not local,Ž he said. It resides outof-state and overseas. Absentee owners use their home several months over the years, and the ability to offer the buyer universe a ”exible rental option is ideal. We know people want it. We know people like it. We said, Why not be proactive about it?Ž In our case, owners will have the ability to have their home professionally managed and administered through a program through Yotel or agents or services like Airbnb,Ž he said. Harvey Hernandez, founder and owner of Newgard, and a co-founder of Niido, asserted that his “rms partnership with Airbnb is a way to ensure that local rules governing rentals are enforced. In addition to Newgards home-sharing project in Kissimmee, The Gale Residences Fort Lauderdale Beach is being marketed as a ”exible livingŽ complex with a managed rental program that encourages tie-ins with Airbnb. Its a way of allowing the activity in our properties and provides the opportunity to our tenants to basically monetize that asset that they lease from us when theyre not using it,Ž Hernandez said. Instead of “ghting the activity, we are controlling it.Ž Were making sure the municipalities get their taxes, and making sure everybody registers,Ž Hernandez said. If anything, we see ourselves as a solution to the problem.ŽAirbnb-style rentals are a growing cash cowBy DAVID LYONSSUN SENTINEL TNS PHOTOThe Airbnb iPhone app Q : We bought a house with a major problem, a covered-over sinkhole, that was not disclosed to us. No one wants to help us with it „ our agent, the seller, everyone has turned his or her back. The house is so torn up to “x the problem that we have been staying in a hotel. Is there anything we can do? „ Edythe A : Most people have heard the Latin term caveat emptorŽ (let the buyer beware) and think that it is up to the buyer to “nd all the problems with a new home. In reality, this is only partly true. Buyers are responsible for inspecting their prospective new home and “nding all of the problems that can reasonably be found. However, some problems cannot be found with the normal inspections done when buying a house because they are hidden. These are known as latent defectsŽ and can include cracked foundations, leaky pipes inside walls, sinkholes „ or even the fact that someone was murdered in the home. If sellers know of any such latent defects, they are legally required to disclose them to prospective buyers, and if they do not, they can be held liable to pay for “xing the problem. It is important to note that sellers are only liable for latent defects if they actually knew of the problem. So, for example, if this is the “rst occurrence of a sinkhole in the area, the seller may not have known of the issue and wont be held responsible for not disclosing it. It just makes sense that someone cannot be liable for not disclosing a fact he or she did not know. You should “rst look to your homeowners insurance coverage to get help repairing your home. Unfortunately, if your policy is like many, sinkholes may not be covered. If this is the case, and if you believe that your seller hid the issue from you, then you should consider a lawsuit to hold that person liable for the damage. Gary M.

Page 16 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 4 Many people dont realize that there are renovation loans that can help pay for your housing upgrades. Whether you need a new roof or your kitchen is outdated, there is a mortgage thats right for your “xer-upper. Here are your options and what you should know about each one.Govermentbacked home renovation loansOne of the best-known loans for home improvements, Fannie Maes HomeStyle Renovation loan, allows borrowers to either buy a place that needs repairs or re“nance their existing home loan to pay for improvements. The HomeStyle loan is available from any Fannie Maeapproved lender, but there are quali“cation requirements: For a primary residence, you must have a credit score of at least 620. You can check your credit score for free at myBankrate to see if you meet this criterion. You have to make a down payment of at least 5 percent of the purchase price of the home. A certi“ed contractor must prepare and submit a cost estimate and details of the work to be done. One advantage of a HomeStyle loan is that its just one loan; you dont have to take out a loan for the mortgage and then another loan for home repairs. One loan reduces paperwork and closing costs. Keep in mind that the money for the home improvements goes into a separate escrow account thats used to pay the contractor directly. You dont have access to those funds like you do with a home equity loan or a cash-out re“nance. The nuance with the HomeStyle loan is that theres a little less freedom for the customer because the funds are held in an escrow account,Ž says Eric Wilson, director of operations at Better Mortgage. The Federal Housing Administration offers a home renovation loan called a 203(k). Theres typically a lower credit-score requirement for this loan than there is for a HomeStyle loan, and a lower minimum down payment of 3.5 percent. There are two types of FHA 203(k) loans: limited (formerly called streamline) and standard. A limited FHA 203(k) loan is designed for cosmetic improvements and is capped at $35,000. A standard FHA 203(k) loan can be used for extensive remodeling, but it requires you to hire a quali“ed 203(k) consultant to oversee every step of the work, from the plans to the “nished product. Theres security in having the consultant. Most people doing a major home improvement project hire a contractor on their own, notes Stuart Blend, regional sales manager for Planet Home Lending. But with a standard 203(k) loan, the consultant is your project manager, assessing the cost, the plans and overseeing the work. When you take out that loan, that money rests with the lender. Were holding those funds in escrow, and were making sure everything is done the way its supposed to be done,Ž Blend says.Private home renovation loansAnother way to “nance your home renovation is by taking out a home equity loan, also known as a second mortgage. This is a one-time loan, so its not subject to ”uctuating interest rates, and monthly payments remain the same for the loan term. A similar loan is the home equity line of credit, or HELOC. It has a revolving balance and might be best for someone who has several large payments due over time, like with a big home improvement project. With either option, youre pledging your home as collateral, meaning if you dont make your payments, the lender will end up owning your house. Alternatively, you can take out an unsecured personal loan to avoid putting up your home as collateral. But HomeStyle and FHA 203(k) loans have some advantages over home equity loans. The loan amount with either of these is based on the completed value and not the present value. A home equity loan is based on the current value,Ž says Gregg Harris, president of LenderCity Home Loans, a division of BBMC/Bridgeview Bank Group. A cash-out re“ allows homeowners to re“nance their mortgage. This mortgage will be for a higher amount than the “rst one, and the homeowner gets the difference in cash. Like home equity loans and HELOCs, cash-out mortgages require homeowners to use their home as collateral. But if youve got a considerable amount of equity in your home, you might be able to “nd lower interest rates. Combine lower interest rates with the added home value derived from renovations, and you could save more in the long run. Youll need at least 20 percent equity in your home to qualify for cash-out re“nancing. The total loan amount is limited to the available equity in your home. Credit score requirements vary per loan amount and value of your home, but generally start at 640. How do you choose the best renovation loan? It really comes down to credit and eligibility,Ž Harris says. An FHA 203(k) might be best for a borrower with so-so credit and little money to pay down since borrowers can get a mortgage with only 3.5 percent down. Consider how much you want to borrow and what it is you want to change. It can be hard to calculate the best home renovation mortgage for your needs, so work with a lender who has extensive knowledge of the different loans, advises Laurie Souza, national business development manager at Mortgage Network Inc. in the Boston area. Make sure youre working with a lender that is well versed with the details of the program,Ž she says.These mortgages pay for home renovationsBy ROBIN SAKS FRANKELBANKRATE.COM While rising interest rates have sharply reduced the number of mortgage borrowers who can re“nance into a lower rate, rising home prices create opportunities for some borrowers to re“nance into mortgages that are less costly in other respects. Previous articles looked at re“nancing a mortgage that is burdened by mortgage insurance, or by a second (piggybackŽ) mortgage, into a new mortgage that has neither. This article considers a third option, which is to re“nance in order to consolidate short-term debts. This appears to be one of the most attractive options a mortgage borrower may have. Yet of the three approaches to re“nancing considered in this series of articles, this is the trickiest and the easiest to get wrong. Homeowners with one mortgage and high-cost, short-term debt can re“nance that mortgage with cash-out in an amount suf“cient to pay off the short-term debt. (Note: cash-outŽ means that the new mortgage amount will be larger than the outstanding balance of the old one). Alternatively, they can take out a new second mortgage to pay off the short-term debt, and leave the “rst mortgage alone. Homeowners who already have two mortgages along with shortterm debt also have two options: 1. They can re“nance the second mortgage with cash out to consolidate the short-term debt, leaving the “rst mortgage alone. 2. They can re“nance both mortgages into a new “rst mortgage that also includes the shortterm debt. Note that re“nancing the “rst mortgage alone is not a good option because the “rst mortgage lender requires the borrower to obtain permission of the second mortgage lender, without which the second mortgage becomes the “rst mortgage. Getting permission can be a hassle. I have two calculators on my web site designed to deal with these two situations. These are: Calculator 1b: Debt Consolidation Calculator for Home Owners With One Mortgage. Calculator 1c: Debt Consolidation Calculator for Home Owners With Two Mortgages. The calculators provide the information about each option that is needed to make the correct decision. This includes the total monthly payment, which consists of mortgage payments, mortgage insurance premiums (if any) and non-mortgage debt payments (if any). Borrowers on tight budgets must be concerned about the monthly payment affordability, but it should not be the major determinant of their choice. The second type of information the calculators provide about all the options is their total cost over a period speci“ed by the user. If the users time horizon is, say, 10 years, the total cost of each option is the sum of the monthly payments over 10 years including lost interest, less the tax savings and reduction in total debt over that period. Minimizing total cost should be the borrowers major objective because cost minimization is the path to early debt retirement. This measure should be used both to determine whether to re“nance and, if so, which of the options to adopt. A single-minded focus on the monthly payment can lead borrowers to a bad decision. As an example, Marie has a $358,788 balance on her 3.5 percent “rst mortgage secured by a home now worth $600,000, but she owes $50,000 on credit cards with an average interest charge of 24 percent. Marie wants to rid herself of the highcost credit card debt, the question being how best to do it. With recent appreciation, she now has enough equity in her house to re“nance her mortgage with suf“cient cash out to pay off the credit cards, paying 4.5 percent and 2 points on the new “rst mortgage. The alternative is a new second mortgage for $50,000 at 7.5 percent and 2 points, leaving the “rst mortgage as it is. From a monthly payment perspective, consolidating the shortterm debt by re“nancing is more attractive, reducing her total monthly payment from $2,796 to $2,113. Consolidating in a new second mortgage would result in a total payment of $2,153. From a cost perspective, however, taking a new second mortgage is the better deal. Over the next 10 years, total cost would be $144,000 in the re“nance case compared to $117,000 in the second mortgage case. At the end of the 10 years, Marie would owe $38,000 less if she took the second mortgage rather than re“nancing the “rst. Concluding comment: The reason that refinancing is not the best solution in this case is that the interest rate on a new first mortgage is higher than the rate on the existing mortgage. As a result, in order to reduce the rate on $50,000 of debt by refinancing, Marie would be obliged to increase the rate on $358,788 of debt.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 19 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 7You have the education, experience and hard skills needed for your career. But what about your soft skills and emotional intelligence (EQ)? How do they impact your ability to be successful? Lets de“ne what is meant by soft skills. Employers not only look for the skills needed to do the job, they also search for professionals who have soft skills like problem solving, teamwork and communication. EQ is de“ned as the capacity to be aware of, control, and express ones emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. These two skills sets are critical for career success. When our employees undergo an annual review, their hard skills are evaluated, but just as important, the majority of the areas are soft skills and EQ. Categories in our review form are in the “rst section called Critical Success Factors. Areas that employees are evaluated on include approachability and responsiveness. In this area we are looking at their willingness to help, a positive attitude, a high level of dedication and meeting expectations. In our case, the customers are our students. We also evaluate our employees on ethics and values with how they embrace differences in others and professionalism. The emphasis here is on the importance of understanding and respecting each others world view, personalities and working styles. In the area of communication, we evaluate employees on their abilities to read, write, speak and listen effectively, and to successfully communicate and collaborate with others to achieve goals. As a college, critical thinking is something we emphasize to our students, and also our employees. We evaluate employees by looking at how well they demonstrate the skills necessary for analysis; provide an intellectual atmosphere conducive to the stimulation and interchange of ideas; make decisions in a timely manner and can look at situations and make recommendations for improvement. In the area of work effectiveness, were looking at how well our employees demonstrate the skills and use of technology needed to collect, verify, document and organize information from a variety of sources. How well do they understand their job duties, the college processes and related work? Are they dependable when it comes to getting their work done not only accurately but on time? Can they adapt to changing goals and work requirements? Our last area for evaluation is in the area of leadership. How well can they manage con”ict? How much do they invest in others to assist them to reach their potential? This can mean not only with colleagues, but also students. Another important area is “scal accountability. Not all of our employees are evaluated in this area, but for those who are, we look for effective and ef“cient use “nancial resources. Whether you are looking for a job, or wanting to advance in your current position, its important to keep in mind how soft skills and EQ can help you. They can make or break your career goals. Susan Bronstein is the Director of Human Resources for Florida SouthWestern State College.Soft skills matter for success in the workplace Susan Bronstein NORTH PORT „ The North Port City Commission has a full agenda at its upcoming Tuesday meeting. A multitude of new topics will be tackled, ranging from Parks and Recreation to West Villages to the Legacy Trail. Second readings for the West Villages comprehensive plan map, Village E rezone and index map amendment will be reviewed by the commissioners at their 6 p.m. meeting. The Parks and Recreation Department will also give updates to several projects, including: Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, Blue Ridge parking lot plans, City Center front green plans and potential disc golf locations. Two programs will be up for discussion and possible action: the special event assistance program and the Citywide Sponsorship program. The special event assistance is intended for events that enhance the community and are bene“cial to North Port and the local economy. The city has a special fund commissioners can choose to use to help pay for the event. They will be reviewing a revised application and guidelines. The citywide sponsorship program allows North Port businesses and organizations to sponsor events such as the National Night Out or Public Works Road-E-O. And the commissioners will also discuss some of the work being done at the county level. The Legacy Trail, which runs 10.6 miles, will be on the November ballot for a possible $65 million expansion in Sarasota. The agenda states the commissioners will discuss and take possible action. The meeting can be viewed online at: cityofnorthport.legistar.com/ Calendar.aspx or on Youtube under City of North Port.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.com North Port plans for parks, parking, programsBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERNew rules of procedure were presented to the Murdock Village Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee at its quarterly meeting Monday. The changes are part of an effort by county staff to bring consistency to advisory committees across the county, said Economic Development Director Lucienne Pears. Its an effort, to the extent that we can, clarify roles, responsibilities, requirements, terms, all of those things,Ž she said. Like new rules recently submitted to the Charlotte Harbor CRA Advisory Committee, the Murdock Village CRA Advisory Committee will be barred from reviewing quasi-judicial matters, such as rezoning applications or variances from the development code, and forwarding an opinion to the Planning & Zoning Board, the Board of Zoning Appeals, or the Charlotte County Commission. We think thats potentially prejudicial to the applicant whose due process rights were trying to protect,Ž said Assistant County Attorney Tom David. The change also protects the countys decisions on such matters. If a quasi-judicial matter came before a court due to an issue involving the advisory committee, the entire action taken by the County Commission could be struck down, David said. The proposed new rules also clarify term limits for committee members, stating they can serve three, threeyear terms for a total of nine years. Committee Member Bill Schafer expressed some concerns with the limit, wanting to preserve continuity on the committee. If multiple seats are open and current members are forced to vacate, it may be dif“cult to “ll spots, he said. One prior members seat has been open for several months, despite advertising the position. The rules also provide for committee members training in the Sunshine Law, though the speci“c mode of training has not been decided. Members suggested holding periodic workshops for members of all advisory boards or offering the training online. The proposed changes will be presented to the committee a second time before going to the county commission for approval. Pears also provided updates on the two large developments in the works for the Murdock Village area. Private Equity Group (PEG) is expected to close on the 452-acre property by the end of the year. The company is working with the Florida Department of Transportation on issues involving access points but has already obtained the majority of the permits needed to begin construction. The county commission is expected to approve a preliminary plat on July 24. The deadline for closing on the property is the end of January 2019, but PEG expects to close in October or November. Pears said President Don Scrotenboer has communicated to the county that theres been great interest from home builders, and he expects to close on a number of pods shortly after obtaining the property. The Lost Lagoon entertainment complex, including a water park, hotels, retail pavilion, and other entertainment uses, is about a year behind Murdock Village, as its contract was approved about a year later. The deadline to submit its rezoning application is at the end of July.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.com Changes advised for Charlotte advisory committeesBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER When trauma, lung disease, or anaphylactic shock cause trouble breathing, Charlotte County paramedics hope to get a tube down patients throats in just 15 seconds. Soon, their jobs will be much easier with a clearer view made possible by new Airtraq devices, recently purchased with a state grant, which include a detachable digital camera on top of an introducer to help guide the tube down the trachea. A light is attached, and the throat is visible on a small screen. I can watch myself push that tube into the airway,Ž said Captain Nathan McManus, demonstrating on a dummy at the Public Safety Building. Charlotte County EMS began official training with the devices this week, and McManus said they hope to have them in the field by mid to late July. The camera can also take photos and record the entire intubation process, so doctors and nurses can see what the process involves and any complications that might arise in the future. We write in our report what we saw and how it went, but now the file gives the nurse or doctor exactly what we saw,Ž McManus said. It shows any blood, vomit, difficulty in the airway. Its basically bringing the doctor to the field, or the field to the doctor.Ž The camera action can also be transmitted to another device, so if multiple responders are on scene, a partner can watch the intubation and offer direction. Now you can have two medics watching this process, and they can talk to each other and help each other,Ž McManus said. For paramedics in training, a field trainer will be able to see whats going on and more accurately assess how the trainee is progressing. The department has 17 of the cameras and about 60 introducers in different sizes, ranging from infant to adult. The cameras cost $750 each, while the introducers cost about $40 a piece. Each ambulance will be equipped with one of the devices. Next year, EMS plans to apply for the same grant for additional devices to go in all Advanced Life Support firetrucks, which paramedics also ride in.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.com New technology eases intubation processBy ANNE EASKER Sta Writer SUN PHOTOS BY ANNE EASKERCharlotte County EMS Captain Nathan McManus demonstrates use of the Airtraq device on a dummy.

Page 24 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 OUR TOWN SPORTS 12 Whenever Tarpons baseball coach Lavell Cudjo pulls up to the baseball “elds at Charlotte High School, its almost become an expectation to see Kyle Machados truck sitting in the parking lot. Machado, a junior right-handed pitcher for Charlotte, has been one of the teams most talented pitchers since he stepped foot on campus nearly three years ago. His dedication and passion for the game has pushed him to become the Tarpons ace, and has also earned him a commitment to play for FGCU. Im basically at the “eld 24/7,Ž Machado said. Ill be there hitting, throwing bullpens, or working out with coach Ron.Ž Even with all the success Machado has had early in his baseball career, hes quick to defer the credit to his teammates. With him, theres kind of a different atmosphere when he goes out there,Ž Tarpons junior catcher Aaron Martins said. Hes always been very humble. Hes never talked about his success or talked about what he does, its always, We did this, or we won that.Ž Following a season in which he recorded a 5-2 record with a 1.79 ERA along with leading Charlotte to a 7A Region-3 quarter“nals berth, Machado thinks theres still a lot of room for improvement. The Sun s All-Area Player of the Year, Machado helped Charlotte “nish 20-9, and all of this despite having a challenging schedule featuring a number of dif“cult opponents, but the Tarpons fell in the district championship to Venice and would eventually be knocked out in the regional quarter“nals by Gulf Coast. Every workout, I have this picture in my head of all of us raising the trophy,Ž Machado said of his longtime goal of winning a district title. Just imagining us raising that trophy gives me all the motivation to work harder.Ž Machado has played with fellow teammates and FGCU commits Martins and Kevin Conway since they were all around 9 years old, and the bond theyve built since they all joined the Florida Burn 10-U team in 2009 has translated to high school well. Martins has caught both Machado and Conway for nearly 10 years, and the junior catcher said their idiosyncrasies have become like second nature. Its to the point where if were in school and somethings wrong, Ill be asking him, You hurt? You sore? Just stuff like that, I can pick up just about anything with the kid,Ž Martins said of his relationship with Machado. It helps me command more of whats gonna happen in a game. If hes missing low, Ill tell him, Hey, youre pulling down too much, try to stay through it. It helps me get him under control and in command so he can shut down the other team easier.Ž But it hasnt always been effortless for Machado. His work ethic and passion for the game were tested last summer, when he tore the labrum in his left shoulder playing summer baseball on July 30. He was faced with a daunting rehabilitation process. one that restricted him from throwing for three months and swinging for six months, it was during that time that Machado decided to direct his energies toward building up the rest of his body, and in doing so adding power to his pitching. With that time off, he built his strength in pitching,Ž Cudjo said. He could already throw hard. Obviously his location is good. But with that time off he built his leg and arm strength a little more to get ready for the season and it helped him. As far as pitching wise, he was at the top of his game. Once he got back and the season started, he was clicking on all cylinders as a pitcher.Ž The junior started the season without missing a beat, leading Charlotte to several key wins throughout the regular season. For Cudjo and Martins, one performance that was particulary impressive was Machados outing against IMG Academy. When we played the IMG national game, thats the best game Ive ever seen that kid throw,Ž Martins said. His velocity was up to about 88-90 (mph) that game and not only that, but I would put my glove on the outside corner and the only time Id have to move my mitt is when I was squeezing the ball. His off-speed, everything was working. Id tell him, Hey, put this one on the outside corner of the plate. And he would put it right on that outside corner.Ž Though the Tarpons fell to Venice and Gulf Coast in the playoffs, Machado threw a complete game shutout at North Port to send Charlotte to the district championship. And despite not being able to capture a district title, Cudjo said the pitching Machado displayed during his junior season hasnt been overlooked. Kyle is a kid that even some of the big league scouts are looking at right now,Ž he said. He has one more year of high school, but hes getting bigger and stronger. (At the) Beginning of the season he was 88-91 mph, and next year Im looking for him to be maybe around 92-93. That speaks volumes. They want to see velocity, they want to see off-speed and change of pace, and he has all of that. If we can keep him healthy, hes got the opportunity to do a lot of good things. I tell him all the time, If you continue to work, the baseball gods will reward you. We dont know where youll be or how far youll go, but you will be rewarded. But I think hes gonna be a kid where we look up in the next “ve years and say, You know what? We were blessed to see that kid pi tch.ŽAll-Area TeamWarnner Rincones, Lemon Bay The captain of the Manta Rays, Rincones led Lemon Bay with both his hitting and defense from the shortstop position. Batting leadoff, Rincones hit .500 with 33 runs and 22 RBI while stealing 12 bases. Aaron Martins, Charlotte „ Batting in the heart of the order for the majority of the season, Martins was a consistent offensive threat on a Tarpons team that struggled to score runs at times. The junior catcher hit .382 with “ve doubles and two home runs. One of his best performances came against Miami Beach in the Sarasota Classic when he hit a solo home run and then a game-winning double in extra innings. The Tarpons would go on to win the tournament. Justin Mincieli, Lemon Bay „ Mincieli transferred from Charlotte to Lemon Bay for his senior year and he had no trouble adjusting to life as a Manta Ray. Mincieli led Lemon Bay by going 8-2 with a 1.80 ERA and with a strikeout ratio of 50 strikeouts to four walks. He started all but one of the Mantas playoff games as they advanced all the way to the regional “nals, where they fell to Avon Park. Mincieli will play for the Webber Warriors when he begins school in the fall. Brandon Gielow, Lemon Bay „ Following a sophomore season that earned him a verbal commitment to Tennessee, Gielow both started and worked in relief for Lemon Bay in 2018. The junior left-hander “nished 6-3 with a 2.70 ERA and 57 strikeouts to 29 walks. With Mincieli starting in the playoffs, Gielow closed out the district championship win over Lake Placid and Lemon Bays regional semi“nals win over Lakewood. Along with his work on the mound, Gielow also played “rst base and left “eld while hitting .376 with 21 runs and 28 RBI. Charlie Davidson, North Port „ Davidson was one of the top pitchers and hitters for North Port, and had several big games for the Bobcats during the season. The senior pitched a no-hitter against Booker and helped kickstart a late rally with a double and a run scored to come from behind and beat Charlotte in an important district matchup. On the mound, he was 3-6 with a 3.52 ERA with 57 strikeouts to 19 walks. At the plate, Davidson led North Port in several key offensive categories pacing the Bobcats with a .355 average, scoring 17 runs and delivering 16 RBI. Kevin Conway, Charlotte „ Another twoway player for Charlotte, Conway was one of the key pitchers and hitters for the Tarpons in his junior season. Along with “nishing 2-2 with a 2.82 ERA, he also was a force offensively “nishing with a .328 average, accounting for 18 hits, including three doubles. Mitch Derocher, Port Charlotte „ Limited to DH duties after injuring his elbow and requiring Tommy John surgery prior to the season, Derocher still provided consistent offense for a Pirates team that was certainly in need of it. Derocher “nished 2018 hitting .327 with 13 runs, 7 RBI and a .421 on-base percentage. He hit his “rst homer of the season when he crushed a ball deep over the 350 foot sign on the left “eld wall at Lemon Bay High School.

DanMEARNSCOLUMNIST Health & HopeHearing Impaired Persons of Charlotte County is getting a name change. Starting July 1, the assistance organization will be known as Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of Charlotte County. When we started in 1989, saying hearing impaired instead of deafŽ was considered politically correct,Ž said Executive Director Kim Gaut. Now, impaired has negative connotations.Ž The Port Charlotte organization provides free counseling, education, equipment and other services to individuals suffering various degree of deafness. Its services include: Ampli“ed phones. Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services is one of the distribution centers in the state that provides these phones that light up, ring very loudly and can be equipped with photos on the dial that identify familiar callers. The phones are distributed by the Florida Telecommunications Relay Incorporated (FTRI), a statewide nonpro“t that administers the Telecommunications Access Systems Act (TASA) of 1991, Everyone always assumes theres a catch,Ž Gaut said, but theres not. You just have to be a resident of the state of Florida and have a hearing or speech loss.Ž Anyone with a doctors certi“cation of deafness or wearing hearing aids quali“es for a free phone with a Florida drivers license or Florida ID. Others are given a “ve-minute written test that determines if they have some type of hearing loss, Gaut said. The ampli“ed phones can be paired with Bluetooth-enabled cellphones, which makes them portable. Recipients may keep them as long as they want. Technically, its a phone-onloan program,Ž Gaut said. Its not theirs to sell, give away or throw away. If they dont want it anymore, Same Hearing Impaired Persons services, different nameDAN | 2 Florida House Bill 21, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in March, goes into effect on July 1, when the prescribing of controlled substances will be more tightly regulated.Opioids are a mainstay of pain relief for cancer patients, so it may not be surprising that many feel victimized by efforts to curb the nations opioid addiction epidemic by limiting access to prescription painkillers. But the doctors and nurses who care for those patients are also caught in the middle of the crisis, two University of Pennsylvania experts argue in a recent opinion piece in JAMA Oncology. Cancer clinicians have been hit with con”icting recommendations for prescribing long-term opioid therapy. Worse, the guidance is largely based on opinion because research is lacking, said Salimah H. Meghani, a nursing professor and palliative care expert, and co-author Neha Vapiwala, a radiation oncologist. The lack of research re”ects the fact that cancer patients are usually excluded from long-term opioid therapy studies because the widely held and timehonored assumption that cancer pain should be regarded differently from other chronic pain conditions,Ž the authors said. The writers are particularly critical of opioid prescribing guidelines issued two years ago by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The advice, aimed at reducing use of the addictive painkillers, has created confusion for cancer clinicians because it de“es recommendations from leading oncology groups, including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. For example, while the CDC guidance exempts cancer patients who are currently in treatment, it applies to those who have “nished treatment „ even though cancer pain can be related to the disease, its treatment, or after-effects of both. Indeed, an American Cancer Society study of survivors found that chronic pain was a leading complaint. The CDC also urges prescribing non-drug pain treatments, such as physical and psychological therapy, even though these are not Opioid prescribing guidelines frustrate cancer doctors as well as their patientsBy MARIE MCCULLOUGHPHILLY.COM OPIOID | 8If my 3-year-old goes more than two hours without a snack, he turns into a screaming, hangry monster.

A new term is causing heartburn for beef, chicken and pork producers: Clean meat.Ž The term is being used by supporters of the emerging science of meat grown in labs without slaughtering cows and chickens. But many in the conventional meat industry dont want it to become the accepted moniker, saying it implies that the meat they produce isnt clean. Meat products grown by replicating animal cells are not yet on supermarket shelves, but the topic is getting enough attention that the Food and Drug Administration is holding a public meeting on culturedŽ meat next month. The agency notes the technological considerations for these products are complex and evolving.Ž One challenge is making sure the cells replicate the animal cells correctly, the agency says. Heres an overview of how the science works: A sample of animal cells is taken and replicated using a culture that fosters their growth. The FDA says animal cells can currently be produced from starter cellsŽ in machines where the cells are cultured to grow. Now companies are working to commercialize the process with techniques that allow complex tissues to form, the FDA says, similar to strategies being explored for human organ replacement. Cultures provide nutrients, vitamins and minerals to help cells grow, but the ones currently on the market are too costly for commercially viable products, according to the Good Food Institute, which advocates and lobbies for meat A look at how cultured meat madeTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOThis Jan. 9 photo shows the Impossible Burger at Stellas, in Bellevue, Nebraska, which is a burger made from plant protein.

Fortunately, collagen enriched skin isnt the highest gauge to a ful“lling life. Wrinkles and skin sagging aside, some things really do improve with age. Research and aging experts report that bene“ts go along with father time. More Emotional Resilience. When youre young, you dont have enough opportunities that make for emotional toughness. As we age, were plenty tested. And the more successful youve been with persevering tough times, the more emotionally resilient you will become. The old adage, The reward of suffering is experience,Ž really is appropriate for those in triple digits. Lifelong Brain Skills are Still Building. If you forgot where you put your watch, or cant remember a new friends name, you may think age is against you. But everyone has a laundry list of ways their memory has failed. When it comes to word skills and abilities to read other peoples emotional states, age is on your side. Research from April 2015 Psychological Science reported that cognitive skills, such as word knowledge does not peak until your sixties and seventies. In another study, younger people just werent as adept as older adults in determining peoples emotional states. Thats pretty helpful when youre trying to react to a friend who is annoyed or distraught. As we age, mental processing and cognitive skills can decline, but it doesnt have to be this way. With a bit of physical effort you can prevent those skills from sloping. We know that people who are active and physically “t can experience slower cognitive loss than those whove been couch potatoes their whole life,Ž says Catherine Mananita, physical therapist for Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center „ a facility that specializes in the active and aging population. Migraines Dampen with Age. According to the Human Health Project, the aging brain begins to lose cells and shrink. Naturally, this can decrease a variety of neurological f unctions and their cognitive signaling pathways. They hypothesize that this process may account for migraines decreasing in severity with each decade. About 40 percent of people with migraines will notice they dont have them anymore by age 65, according to The Migraine Trust, a United Kingdom-based migraine research charity. More Wakefullness. Its common to hear seniors rant about their fatigue. But in comparison to younger people, seniors rule wakefulness. According to a new U.S. study and reported in Reuters Health, The 15 to 24 age group reported feeling the most tired during all activities throughout the day. Researchers used a scale of 0 to 6 with 6 being very tired and the 15-24 groups were almost a full point higher than seniors. The average fatigue scores fell from 2.5 among the youngest age group in the study to approximately 1.8 for the oldest age group.Ž The study, conducted by Laura Kurdna and Paul Dolan at the London School of Economics and Political Science and published in the Journals of Gerontology Series B, included nearly 13,000 American participants and is one of very few large-scale investigations of tiredness. Its a big effect,Ž Kurdna told Reuters Health. The evidence on this so far is quite mixed, and most studies have either been done in clinical settings or in Europe.Ž Kurdnas plausible explanations for the “ndings of the study, includes, older people are able to use their time and do what they want to do when they want to do it.Ž She also noted that, because older people tend not to use social media they may not have their attention drained the way that younger people might.Ž Blooming SelfCon“dence with Each Decade. Its true. Research surveyed older peoples con“dence (starting in middle adolescence and at various points in the aging process) and found there was a subtle uptick in self-esteem. Although it was scant, it did show that our self-esteem gets more positive with age progression. One reason for this increase is called the maturity principle. The idea is that early in life, were confused about where we “t into the grand scheme of society. As we get older, though, we start to adapt to social roles and understand our place. In doing so, we get more comfortable, con“dent, and capable. As people age, their knowledge of the world „ and themselves „ grows. Their sense of self identity gets stronger, and theyve acquired a lot of different experiences to support that,Ž says Elizabeth Glisky, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Glisky told Huf“ngton Post, With all these things together, you know who you are and what youre about, and you have a lot more selfcon“dence than when you were younger.Ž For more information regarding rehabilitation, call Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center at 941-235-8011.They offer comprehensive rehabilitative outpatient and inpatient services for shortor long-term care and are located at 25325 Rampart Blvd., Port Charlotte.Five reasons life gets easier with ageBy LAUREEN ALBRECHTPort CHARLOTTE REHABILITATION CENTER PHOTO PROVIDEDResearch surveyed older peoples condence (starting in middle adolescence and at various points in the aging process) and found there was a subtle uptick in self-esteem.

FTRI wants it back.Ž Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services covers Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Venice and Sebring, and Gaut said she receives a combined total of more than 800 requests a year for the special telephones. Hearing aids. When available, refurbished hearing aids are provided for free to low-income individuals who qualify. Residents are invited to donate old or discarded hearing aids, which Gaut sends to one of her agencys audiologist partners (such as Dr. Bethany Walden in Port Charlotte and Dr. Roberto Gautier in Punta Gorda). The doctors determine if the old hearing aids can be refurbished, then refurbish and hold them for us,Ž said Gaut. We send quali“ed people to those doctors, who “t them with the hearing aids. Unfortunately, we dont have anything in hearing aid bank right now.Ž Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services also refers people to the area Lions Clubs that have partnered with hearing aid manufacturer Rexton, Inc. to offer three types of digital hearing aids for low-income individuals. Gaut said many people suffering from hearing loss reject hearing aids. Cost is a factor,Ž she said, but denial and vanity are the main reasons people dont get them.Ž Communication classes. Evening sign language classes will be available at the end of July for anyone who wants to take them. They are held four times a year, depending on instructor availability. Gaut serves as a teacher, along with other volunteers from the local deaf community. She starting taking classes 20 years ago. When I was a little kid, I saw two deaf men signing and I was fascinated with the language,Ž she recalled. When I had the chance to learn it, I did. From there, I met people in the deaf community who taught me.Ž Gaut said only Canada and the United States use American Sign Lan guage (ASL). The other countries have their own versions, but Gaut said deaf people have a way of understanding each other, through body language, pantomime and other resources. ASL is a complex language that employs signs made by moving the hands combined with facial expressions and body posturing. Its a totally different language,Ž she said. It has its own grammar and syntax. Its a conceptual and visual language.Ž Part of ASL involves spelling out words on one hand, using signs to correspond to the letters in each word. If that seems like a laborious process, watch a skilled practitioner; their fingers seem to fly. In 2011, a Portland, Oregon, hearing person named Marty Wormley set a record by signing the entire alphabet in just 4.43 seconds. We only do proper names in letters,Ž said Gaut. Other than that its signing. Theres no English.Ž Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services is located at 21450 Gibralter Drive, Suite 8, in Port Charlotte.

Page 28 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 June is Aphasia Awareness month, and although over 2 million people in the US experience aphasia, and 1 in 3 strokes results in aphasia, most Americans (84.5 percent) state that theyve never heard the term aphasia.Ž Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs a persons ability to process or produce language and impairs the ability to speak and/or understand others. Most people with aphasia experience dif“culty with reading and writing, yet, intelligence is usually intact. Aphasia post stroke is associated with damage to the left side of the brain, where most of the language functions are housed. A less common form of aphasia is Primary Progressive Aphasia, a neurodegenerative disease which is associated with a gradual loss of language abilities. The inability to formulate thoughts into verbal expression or fully understand what is being said can result in frustration for persons with aphasia and their loved ones. In the past, it was thought that recovery from aphasia post stroke was limited to the “rst 6 months to a year, and this prognosis for poor recovery of language often limited insurance payment for speech therapy services when aphasia persisted months or years following an initial stroke. However, with advances in neuro-imaging, new theories have evolved about neuroplasticity, which is the brains capacity to create new pathways over a lifetime, and these theories have given rise to new treatments, including speech generating devices; computer-assisted programs and home-based programs including the use of telepractice delivery models. Research continues to evolve, giving hope to individuals with chronic aphasia that improvement in communication can still be attained and guiding speech-language pathologists in the selection of the best treatment approaches based on the location of brain injury and an individuals learning style. Voices of Hope for Aphasia is a community-based program located in Tampa. This fall, Oct. 1920, VOH for Aphasia is sponsoring Project BRIDGE (Building Research Initiatives by Developing Gr oup Effort). Researchers, individuals with aphasia, speechlanguage professionals, and family members are invited to attend and discuss research needs affecting people living with aphasia.

Where the experience is different for Muslim people is that we understand that, and we push ourselves to go the opposite direction.Ž Hunger zaps you with stress hormones, tinkers with your blood sugar levels and causes physiological arousal, where you notice something happening to your body. For example, you might not notice your resting heart rate, but if youre scared, youll notice your racing pulse. Hanger happens when you mix up hunger, which is a bad physiological feeling, with a bad emotional feeling. I wanted to look at speci“c ways that the body contributes to emotion,Ž study co-author and UNC graduate student Jennifer MacCormack said. Whats your “rst impression when you meet a stranger?

Hungry participants who had seen an angry dog image guessed that the Chinese characters were more negative than hungry people who saw kittens or irons. But hunger by itself didnt affect the ratings. Only hungry, negative-exposed people acted more like Debbie Downers than people who were full. Hungry people exposed to neutral or positive images acted the same as full people. Its not the case that being hungry makes you a jerk,Ž UNC professor Kristin Lindquist, the other study co-author, said. You need to have some sort of instigating context. (Hangry) people attribute their reactions to the context, and hunger turns up the dial on what otherwise would be a mildly angry response.Ž After establishing that negative contexts turned hungry people hangry, Lindquist and MacCormack tested how people interacted with live experimenters. First, participants saw a picture of Jon,Ž a generic white man, looking neutral, sad or angry. Then participants, who fasted for “ve hours or ate less than an hour before the experiment wrote short stories about what happened to Jon and why he felt that way. The researchers wanted to “nd out whether focusing on emotions makes you less likely to blame others in bad situations, like the one that participants then faced. After completing 100 trials of a tedious taskŽ of counting whether a ring of circles was even or odd, their computer crashed.Ž They had to “nd the experimenter, who asked them, What did you do? What keys did you press?Ž and then left after some tinkering. Participants were more likely to say they felt hateŽ or that the experimenter was judgmentalŽ if they were hungry and had written about neutral-faced Jon. It was the unpleasant negative context that allowed people to misattribute their hunger to the experimenter in the study,Ž MacCormack said. A lot of times, our body is not directly producing a feeling of pleasantness or unpleasantness. Its making physiological arousal, and people interpret automatically what that physiological arousal means, (but its) not a conscious process.Ž By learning more about how hanger arises, we can learn how to avoid it. To write this story I tried to become hangry by not eating, but I was so focused on my emotions that I didnt overreact hangrily. Something similar might be happening when Muslims fast for Ramadan, Lindquist said. The key is awareness,Ž Lindquist said. I would imagine nothing makes you more aware of your hunger than fasting for religious purposes. In that case, people are acutely aware of the fact that theyre very hungry and are good at not misinterpreting their body states.Ž Injecting positivityŽ into your environment might also protect you from hanger, MacCormack wrote in a recent article. So if youre fasting, you can avoid hanger if you give positive connotations to the fast. Ramadan provides a positive, pleasant, meaningful context,Ž MacCormack said. The hunger could be interpreted and constructed as a very different emotion, like a sense of awe or humility or whatever religious emotions are special for people during that time.Ž Hanger can happen to anyone, though people who are more in tune with their bodies might be able to avoid it more. Are there Muslim people who struggle and dont achieve those mental and spiritual goals and experience hanger? Absolutely,Ž Aukhil said. The goal is to not do that.Ž MacCormack also noted, If youre more aware of your bodily cues, you recognize that this is my body and this is not something happening in the world around me. You can better identify the so-called true cause of your feelings.ŽHANGRYFROM PAGE 1 Alzheimers support groupsThe Alzheimers Association holds monthly caregiver support groups for spouses, adult children and family members who want to connect and share insight with others in similar situations.

The Sun /Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 31 According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, older adults who exercise regularly have a reduced mortality risk. The concept of using exercise to stay healthy and live longer is common knowledge. What is not as common is the manner in which exercise should be approached to facilitate these bene“ts. Without a well thought out plan, it is unlikely that many people will accomplish much in the way of “tness improvement. Such a plan is, quite often, best done by a “tness or health professional and will include one or more training factors. These factors, in reality, are your goals. An aim, when planning your “tness program, is to choose goals that are important to you, realistic, attainable and will help you address a “tness concern or problem. Common “tness goals include: increasing ”exibility, strength or endurance; facilitating an ideal body composition; improving balance, coordination or posture; managing stress or increasing energy and vitality. A brief description of these training factors or “tness goals are presented below. € Flexibility: The capacity of the body, or its parts, to bend and unbend freely. € Strength: The amount of force a group of muscles can exert against a resistance. € Endurance: The capacity of groups of muscles or systems of the body to perform (work) for long periods of time. € Body Composition: The relative amounts of fat, muscle and bone contained in the body. € Balance: The ability of the body to maintain equilibrium while stationary or moving. € Coordination. The harmonious working of groups of muscles in the execution of complex tasks. € Posture. How well the body, as a whole, is positioned or aligned. € Relaxation and stress management € Bioenergetics: Understanding and manipulating those elements (air, nutrients, etc.) that are capable of facilitating good health and vitality. Simply choosing a factor of training is not enough. The selected factor should be seen as a goal to be used to form the basis for an effective training plan or program.

Page 32 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 Though severe eye problems are not limited to just the older age brackets, its a fact that there is a disproportionate number of people over the age of 65 who have vision loss. According to the Special Report on Aging, produced by the American Foundation for the Blind, as the baby boom generation gets older, those numbers will only increase. Experts predict that by the year 2030, the rates of vision loss will actually be double what they are today. The causes of vision loss and low vision, and ways to deal with and treat them, were some of the topics discussed at a recent seminar at Solaris Healthcare Charlotte Harbor, a rehabilitation facility in Port Charlotte. A panel from Lighthouse of Manasota spoke to the group and answered questions as part of a seminar series designed to educate and inform Solaris clients about important issues that affect them. Lighthouse is a nationally accredited, private, nonpro“t agency which provides rehabilitation training to blind and visually impaired individuals of all ages who reside in Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto, Charlotte or Highlands counties. Sally Meyers, a rehabilitation instructor at Lighthouse, explained how she and other rehabilitation practitioners help their clients learn to deal with the effects of full or partial blindness. Our mission is to educate and empower people with vision loss and enhance their quality of life,Ž she said. Individual training is helpful, but when youre in a group of people who are in a similar situation to you, you realize that youre not alone in what youre going through. There is help and there are adaptive aids that we can teach you to use, that will help make your life a little less frustrating.Ž Myers said that some of the simple tools she teaches are mobility and assistive technology training. For instance, there is a free smartphone application that will say out loud what denomination of paper money you are holding when you pass the camera over the bills. Though Lighthouse of Manasota has clients that range from the age of three months to 102 years old, most of their clientele are over the age of 65. Dr. Chelsea Spalding is an optometrist who was on the panel to discuss the causes of vision loss and what can be done, if anything, to correct them. She said that there are three primary conditions that lead to vision loss. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the United States for those over the age of 50,Ž she said. Weve seen it a lot more recently, because its age-related and people are living longer now. Glaucoma results when the pressure in the eye becomes too high, and there are seven or eight different types. And Diabetic Retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness from ages 17 to 74.Ž Dwayne and Georgia Ellenberger were sitting on the discussion panel to speak about vision impairm ent, from the perspective of both patient and caregiver. Dwayne is 88 years old and has macular degeneration. He said that he and his wife went to Lighthouse to learn how to deal with the effects of the rapidly progressing condition. This is the kind of disease that the whole family is aware of,Ž he said. She (Georgia) made a phone book for me with large numbers to use, and I do still play golf, but I play with traf“c orange ones, so I can see them better. At “rst, I was really bashful and was afraid to say I was blind, but now Im not and Im really enjoying myself.Ž Many members of the audience listening to Ellenberger and the other panelists were potential Lighthouse clients „ patients of Solaris Healthcare who were having low vision problems. But others were caregivers who were hoping to “nd solutions to help their own patients. Lorna Deriggs is a home health nurse in North Port. She said that one of the most debilitating issues she sees with her clients is their vision problems. Their struggles with low vision can cause frustration and can even be dangerous. One of the biggest problems is with reading medicine bottle labels,Ž she said. Theres so much information thats required to be on there and they need to be able to read it. What they (Lighthouse) provide would really empower the geriatric population suffering from visual de“cit.Ž In addition to Assistive Technology Training, Lighthouse of Manasota offers an Independent Living Program and an Orientation Program, as well as Early Intervention (for young children) and Transition for Teenage Students. They also have an in-house store called Peepers, where they stock a variety of low vision products, like portable video magni“ers, audio clocks, talking watches, cooking aids, speed dots iPhones and braille pill boxes. The programs are all free, but in order to participate, clients must have an eye report from their doctor. After that is submitted, a case manager will contact them to schedule a visit and map out a course of treatment. The instruction is helpful to both the client and the caregiver, as Georgia Ellenberger will attest. She, as well as Dr. Spalding, said that the key to getting the most out of the Lighthouse experience is to seek help as soon as you can. As a caregiver, youre going through the same problems as the patient, so its important to be involved,Ž she said. We were very lucky that Lighthouse found us early on, that way they could help us understand what was ahead and how to understand things. My advice to everyone would be to go as early in the disease as you can.Ž To “nd out more about Lighthouse of Manasota, visit the website at www. LighthouseofManasota. org or call 941-3591404.

In response to the CDC guidance, the American Medical Association passed a resolution, Ensuring Cancer Patient Access to Pain Medication,Ž and vowed to oppose arbitrary prescription limits. For their part, Meghani and Vapiwala call for studies to “gure out the best prescribing practices for cancer patients, and collaboration by key organizations and agencies to resolve inconsistencies in recommendations. Opioid prescribing practices are a function of complicated decision making processes,Ž the authors conclude, and clinicians express frustration about how to best navigate an increasingly overwhelming set of institutional, regulatory, and policy requirements, while being advocates for their patients with pain.ŽOPIOIDFROM PAGE 1 FEELING FIT 8 Having a venous ulcer is like having a red-hot poker on your leg.

NEW YORK „ Rory Carlton is getting used to hearing younger staffers ask, Why are we doing this?Ž Its a question Carlton would never have asked his boss when he started working nearly 40 years ago. When he was given an assignment, he just completed it. But Carlton, like other business owners in their 40s and older, is learning how to manage employees in their 20s and 30s who dont look at the world or the workplace as he does. Hes learned that staffers arent asking questions to be dif“cult or argumentative „ theyre curious. I “nd todays younger employees have a hunger to learn and progress, and they want to understand the bigger picture „ the why? behind what they are doing, rather than just the what? of the assignment they are given,Ž says Carlton, owner of Arketi Group, a marketing strategy company based in Atlanta. Its not a confrontation, its a collaboration.Ž Small business owners can sometimes be perplexed or annoyed by younger staffers, whom they see as demanding or entitled in asking for time off or to know when theyll get a promotion. But owners who take time to understand, train and mentor staffers say younger workers bring perspectives that can help a company, and that lumping an entire age group into a stereotype is detrimental to everyone. This group of individuals does get a bad rap,Ž says AdreAnne Tesene, owner of Two Bostons, four pet goods store in the Chicago area. Its up to us as owners and managers to just let them know whats expected.Ž Most of Tesenes 36 employees are in their 20s and 30s. She looks at them individually to determine what each needs from her in terms of mentoring and coaching. Still, she “nds some challenges. After several employees skipped two monthly staff meetings at which attendance is mandatory, they were surprised to “nd themselves dismissed. She holds herself responsible. If I bring someone into our team who doesnt want to improve, thats my fault. Its not a generational thing,Ž she says. Owners should try to understand their younger staffers, says Kate Zabriskie, owner of Business Training Works, which offers management and other business instruction. For example, she notes, younger employees are apt to ask, when can I expect a promotion? That may be less a sense of entitlement and more based on their experience progressing through school, sports and other extracurricular activities. They may also be seeking feedback. Theyre new to the workplace. They want to know theyre getting it right,Ž says Zabriskie, who urges owners not to be authoritarian or dismissive. Younger staffers may also seek more help and information than an owner expects. The right thing approach is to answer patiently, Zabriskie says.

Page 34 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 I paid my dues, nobody helped me.Ž Of course, older owners who complain are repeating history. Bosses with a work ethic honed during the Great Depression groused about baby boomers. And boomers did the same with Gen X workers. Some of what you see from employees in their 20s and early 30s is just young people being young,Ž says Brian Carter, owner of an eponymous digital and social media marketing “rm in Charleston, South Carolina. Carter has learned that younger staffers want to be emotionally and professionally ful“lled. They will stick with a manager or boss who cares about them personally and helps them grow and develop. If they dont make a connection with you, or you dont make the effort to connect with them, you can lose them,Ž he says. Carter regularly takes time to ask his “ve staffers how they are, including what theyre doing outside of work. Hes also learned that younger staffers will be more vocal than older ones about wanting the boss to be accountable for mistakes. When I take responsibility for any miscommunications, and compliment them on any and all effort and progress, they are a lot happier and happy to do good work,Ž he says. Rick Gibbs gets a lot of questions from clients about how to manage younger employees. The answer, says Gibbs, a consultant with the human resources provider Insperity, is to look at these staffers without judgment and resentment, and lead rather than try to control them. Theyre a resource, not a problem,Ž Gibbs says. You may be missing out on different points of view, ways of doing things that may help your company make money.Ž Andy Pittmans solution is to listen, negotiate and appreciate. They definitely have a different perspective on life than boomers. They like beer at work on Friday afternoon. They collaborate with each other in a group format a lot. Its a more relaxed attitude,Ž says Pittman, CEO of ShelfGenie, a home improvement franchise chain based in Atlanta and owner of two franchises in North Carolina. Pittman does see a little bit more of the entitlement attitudeŽ among younger employees, but he also sees hard workers. So hes willing to negotiate on things like time off; some of his staffers would rather have more paid vacation than raises. If we can do the work we need to do, Ill give them more time off,Ž he says. Carlton finds younger staffers are interested in finding different ways to do things. One employee figured out an alternative method of accomplishing a task and wanted to keep using it. Carlton had to explain that the task wasnt done often enough to justify the expense of the different approach. He said noŽ in a way that acknowledged the staffers efforts but also explained the financial realities. Were teaching them to be business people. Its important for them to know how the money is made,Ž he says.STAFFERSFROM PAGE 1 Tamika Lofton, right, speaks with a potential job applicant at a job fair, Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in Chicago.

People wait to talk to potential, future employers at a job fair, Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in Chicago. The unemployment rate is 3.8 percent in the U.S. Q: Lately I have been feeling very insecure and lacking in con“dence. It started when I moved to a different city to take a challenging new job. Its been a few months and I just cant seem to get my feet under me. What should I do? „Celia, 31, graphic designer A: Build multiple platforms to support you in your new setting to get the best grounding. Many aspects of your life were affected when you moved for this job. You changed homes, lost day-to-day contact with friends and had to establish new routines. While it can be exciting, it can also be exhausting. At the same time, you are learning a new job, one that may be causing you to stretch more than you may have expected. Thats a lot of sources of stress at once, and your feelings of insecurity may be your way of reacting. If you are responding by withdrawing, this could exacerbate the issue. To help you adjust, consider which aspects of your life give you the most strength. For example, if you are athletic, seek out teams or activities to participate in. Similarly, if you are a person of faith, find a religious home that suits you. Engaging in preferred activities will help you connect with the type of personal network you might be craving. Also, find ways to ease the transition through connections with friends from your former community. Its easier than ever with mobile phones and social media; also invite people to visit so that you can introduce them to your new environment. Build routines, finding a favorite grocery store, hair stylist, vet, etc. so that every decision you make doesnt require effort. This will free up a lot of mental energy. Now consider your work situation. Clearly, if your employer recruited you to move for this position, they saw strong potential and value in the skills you bring. Remind yourself of these skills, writing down a list so that they are clear and tangible to you. While you are at it, make a list of all the strengths you bring, not just intellectual task-based skills. Also consider emotional intelligence characteristics, communication skills and the like to bolster your confidence. That said, since you are so new in your job, you are probably still on a learning curve. Think through your primary responsibilities, and take an objective look at your performance. Which have been easy to pick up? Give yourself pats on the back for those. For those that have been a challenge, assess the approaches you have taken, and strategize ways to improve. Be sure you are getting feedback on your ramp up from your boss. You may well be meeting or exceeding expectations for getting started; in that case, you are putting undue pressure on yourself. Look at steps you can take to get the support you need. You will feel better once you have more mastery of your position, so any training, coaching, or mentoring you can get will be time well spent. Finally, be patient with yourself so that you can ease into your new life with less anxiety.New job in a new city requires a new approachBy LIZ REYERSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS) Need that hard-to-find item?

PRO-POWER AUTO SALES 4140 Whidden Blvd PC 33980 (941) 627-8822DEAR CARRIE: I work for a medical practice that is open seven days a week. Its a relatively new business, and I was hired a couple of years ago as a practice administrator Monday through Friday. In the beginning, I worked endless hours to make this practice work. As time went by, it was clear that none of my hard work on the weekends was appreciated. I am not paid for weekend work, nor am I given comp days for the extra time. I generally work about 50 hours a week. I have promoted some staff to supervisors, and part of their job is to handle weekend calls. Recently a worker called in sick at the last minute on a Sunday. My supervisor took the call and alerted me. She tried hard to get another staff member to come in. In the end, we could not get a substitute for the front desk. But the medical assistant, who is one of the promoted supervisors, handled the morning by herself really well. I thought that was that. But when I went in on Monday, the two physicians rudely told me I should have been in the of“ce and that it is my responsibility to work on weekends when someone calls in sick. I advised them that the supervisor handled the situation well, and there was nothing I could do as I was a great distance from the of“ce. I am clearly an exempt employee designated as a practice administrator who works Monday through Friday. I did report this to the human-resource department, but no one has gotten back to me. The physicians demand that I be on call to work every weekend. Are there labor laws that make it illegal for an exempt employee who is scheduled to work Monday through Friday to be forced to work on a Saturday or Sunday, too? „ Weary Worker DEAR WEARY: Unless you have a contract that limits your hours, that Monday through Friday schedule is like the suggested retail price for a car: subject to change. Labor laws dont limit the hours of adult workers, even those of nonexempt, or hourly, employees. But the difference is that the latter must be paid for all the hours they work and overtime when they work more than 40 hours a week. But when it comes to exempt workers, they just have to be paid a set salary, which on Long Island is currently $825 a week for employees that fall into the executive and administrative categories. Aside from that salary, exempt workers dont have to be paid a penny more, no matter how many extra hours they work. I am surprised your supervisors didnt explain that to you. If they had, you wouldnt have had to take the extra step of reporting the matter to HR. I often get this question from newly minted supervisors who are grateful for the bump up in pay their new job brings but are astounded to “nd out that they can legally be asked to work numerous more hours in the week without extra pay. Those situations may seem unfair, but theyre legal. DEAR CARRIE: Is there a limit on the number of hours, either per day or per week, that an exempt employee can be expected to work? „ Inquiring Mind DEAR INQUIRING: As I mentioned in the question above, labor law generally dont limit the number of hours adult employees can be required to work, whether it be on a daily or weekly basis. As with any law, there are exceptions. For example, state law requires workers in such businesses as factories and hotels, except resort and seasonal hotels, to get at least 24 consecutive hours of rest in each calendar week. (For a more complete list, check the link that accompanies this story online.) Other that, an employer can require an adult employee to work any number of hours. Go to bit.ly/ DayOfRestLI for a list of industries and jobs whose employees must be given at least 24 hours of rest in each calendar workweek.Exempt employee questions extra hours, no extra payBy CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAY WASHINGTON Eight years ago, Samantha Miller was earning six “gures a year as a product developer for a LED lighting company in Northern California when a high school friend called to ask a favor. Would Miller be able to help her friends boss at a medical marijuana dispensary “gure out how to use a new machine purchased to analyze the quality of pot? Miller passed on the job, but offered some free advice. With her background in machinery design and lab supervision, she told the dispensary folks: You need (to hire) a scientist because you are going to ruin that piece of equipment if you dont know how to run it.Ž The dispensary owner ignored her warning and sure enough, Miller soon received a call that the machine had gone kaput. Fed up, the owner offered to give the high-tech device to Miller if she could repair it and would be willing to test the dispensarys marijuana for free. Miller “xed the machine, and her business was born. I look back at the moment, and I dont know what totally seized me,Ž she said. These days, Miller employs about 10 people at Pure Analytics, a quality assurance and testing company outside of Santa Rosa. Last month, she hired four people, including two high-level scientists. (Ones an expert with terpene, a component of marijuana that gives it its aroma.) Both are six-“gure jobs, Miller said. She also hired “eld sample technicians employees who go to customer facilities and collect product to bring back to the lab. The job requires workers to have a Bachelor of Science degree, she said, and employees earn between $40,000 and $55,000 annually, depending on how many years out of school and how wet they are behind the ears.Ž More than a year and a half has passed since Californians legalized the adult use of recreational marijuana, and since then, pot has become one fastest growing employment sectors in the U.S. Job creation isnt limited to dirt-under-the-“ngernails positions like growers and trimmers. White collar work in the industry also is exploding, with businesses scrambling to hire scientists, attorneys, accountants, technicians and marketing experts. Employment sites such as Monster.com and Indeed.com are “lled with openings. A medical marijuana dispensary in Sacramento needs an experienced store manager. Salary: $40,000-$60,000. A cannabis lab in Los Angeles wants to process manager-lab technician and will pay $75,000-$110,000. CEOs and master growers also can command six-“gure salaries and equity in the company. California leads the nation in marijuana employment. In 2017, the state had 38,233 people directly employed in the pot business, and 18,165 people in related employment, according to BDS Analytics, a market research “rm that follows the industry. By 2021, BDS predicts that almost 100,000 Californians will be employed in the cannabis industry. Similar gains are expected nationally well. With recreational or medical marijuana legal in 29 states and the nations capital, the pot industry employed 121,000 people in the U.S. last year. By 2021, thats predicted to more than double, according to BDS. Those looking for cannabis jobs already can feel the momentum. According to employment site ZipRecruiter.com, marijuana job postings increased 693 percent from the last quarter of 2016 to last quarter 2017. California, Colorado and Washington had the highest number of marijuana jobs posted last year, according to the site. The allure of the industry is about more than the abundance of positions or the amounts they pay. Similar to those who signed up to work at Silicon Valley start ups, many marijuana employees were drawn by the opportunity to work in a nascent industry and help create companies from the ground up. This applies to millennials as well as mid-career professionals looking for a change. There may be some people who are getting nice salaries, but the majority of reasons we are seeing people from other industries come over is because its exciting,Ž said Lara Kaminsky, executive director of the Cannabis Alliance, a Seattle-based trade association. Its uncharted territory. They can apply skills they developed in other industries and be more creative. This is an opportunity to really shift the landscape to what a new industry looks like.Ž Theres also the hope of being a part of the green rush,Ž and possibly landing a little piece of the actionŽ in the form of stock options that one day could be worth millions, said Hugh Hempel, CEO of Strainz, a cannabis brand-management company that is one of the few weed businesses operating in multiple states (Washington, Colorado, Nevada and California). For some in the industry, job creation is a sign the marijuana business is maturing. Dr. Bao Le got into the medical marijuana business about eight years ago after his son was diagnosed with autism. The boy had night terrors, and Le wanted to avoid giving him traditional pharmaceuticals and began researching cannabis oils, he said. He realized there was a need in the market for ingredients that were quality-assured and pure. That led to the launch of his own company, BAS Research, a cannabis research and manufacturing company in Berkeley. Le said that with the mainstreaming of the marijuana marketplace, pot companies increasingly are relying on employees with the same job skills and talents as those in other industries. You have got to have a full spectrum of professional people to take it from procurement to extraction to production and then go sell it,Ž he said. And people want in. Within minutesŽ of posting a job, Le said, his company is ”ooded with responses. We probably have 1,200 resumes right now for “ve positions,Ž he said. Hempel, an early employee at Netscape, said he got into the cannabis business seeking a treatment for his two twin teenage girls, who have Niemann-Pick Type C, a rare genetic disorder with no known cure. He said that while the job market in cannabis is hot right now, its just beginning to see recruiters headhunting for candidates with the same frequency as they do in other industries. Until a few years ago, his main way of “nding talent was wordof-mouth or informal job boards such as Craigslist. Recently, a recruiter contacted him on LinkedIn to see if he was looking for a new opportunity. It took me a little by surprise,Ž Hempel said. Its not the norm in this industry.Ž The idea of switching to the pot business from her job as an account manager at marketing agency for web development initially gave Heather Smyth pause. I had concerns about having cannabis on my resume,Ž she said. But her worries evaporated as she realized that the cannabis business is just like any other business, she said. Shes now director of marketing at Wurk, a management consulting “rm for the cannabis industry in Denver. Its a professional of“ce space, and Im doing a lot of the same things Id be doing at any other marketing “rm,Ž Smyth said.  Its fun.Ž Despite its growth, the pot industry faces challenges. Marijuana remains illegal at the federal level. The government considers it a Schedule 1 drug, one that has no accepted medical use and can be subject to abuse. That complicates the industrys ability to use banks. It also means higher taxes because business owners cant take advantage of federal tax deductions available to other businesses. Its also hard for job candidates from overseas to get work visas. Meanwhile, Californias marijuana tax revenues are off to a slow start. The state had expected to collect upwards of $175 million by mid-year, but only collected $34 million in the “rst quarter of 2018. Thats in part because fewer communities than expected have welcomed the marijuana trade. Sales have been down as well, as some buyers, put off by high state and local taxes, opted for the black market. On the upside, a Gallup poll last fall found that two-thirds of the country supports legalization, including 51 percent of Republican respondents, a jump of 9 percentage points over last year. That represents a long, strange trip from the days of illicit nickel bags, fringed jackets and light shows. Its de“nitely a sea change,Ž said Lindsay Robinson, executive director of the California Cannabis Industry Association, a trade group. Its taken activists many, many years to get here. Its really exciting to see politicians become outspoken. Were hopeful that federal government will catch up to the will of the people.ŽPot businesses are on a hiring spree.

The News Wire Sunday, June 24, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Sanders says she was asked to leave Virginia restaurantSee page 4. MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) „ Peter Unger traveled the world, “rst in the Navy at the tail end of the Korean War and then as a free spirit searching the ancient paths of India for lifes sacred meaning. Toward the end of his life Unger, sporting a ”owing white beard and well-off “nancially thanks to his handcrafted jewelry business, sought sanctuary in the idea of living simply. But in a twist of fate, the 85-year-old who shunned worldly cares was found dead May 7, alone in a nondescript white Ford van that sat parked undisturbed for days at a Walmart, a retail giant seen by many as Americas temple of commerce and materialism. Unger was among the growing number of people around the country who drew their last breaths in Walmart parking lots. It is not that the parking lots are unsafe. In fact, it is the relative safety of the well-lit and busy lots „ combined with a welcoming corporate policy „ that has drawn more people like Unger to call the Walmart parking lots home, if only temporarily. And where people live, they also die. They include those who are homeless, truckers, immigrants, drug-addled, suicidal or ill „ all whose bodies are found nationwide in cars, vans and other vehicles in the parking lots of the retail giant. It is the last stop, one that can go unnoticed amid the daily crush of shoppers searching for deals, sometimes focused on the rattle of carts instead of their crowded surroundings. In Brevard, police have investigated nearly half a dozen such parking lot deaths since 2015, from the badly decomposed remains of a man found inside a ”y-swarmed sedan at a beachside Walmart in the simmering July heat to that of a man who suffered from cancer, found the same year in a sport utility vehicle that sat in a far corner of the Walmart lot in Viera. In both cases, it was the pungent smell that “rst caught the attention of passers-by or workers. Its unfortunate but these (things) do happen. Its not uncommon,Ž said Lt. Cheryl Trainer, spokeswoman for the Melbourne Police Department, an agency that has investigated the bulk of the Walmart parking lot deaths on the Space Coast. LAS VEGAS „ President Donald Trump pressed his tough immigration stance at a Nevada political convention Saturday, telling hundreds we have to be very strongŽ to keep people, including violent gang members, from entering the country illegally. Trump was in Las Vegas to boost the candidacy of Dean Heller, the only Republican U.S. senator seeking re-election in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Trump and Heller have papered over their once prickly relationship to present a united front in their shared goal of helping Republicans maintain, if not expand, their thin 51-49 majority in the Senate. Heller was among the of“cials waiting on the sweltering airport tarmac to greet Trump. In remarks to several hundred people attending the Nevada GOP Convention, Trump portrayed himself as tough against illegal immigration, saying at one point, I think I got elected largely because we are strong on the border.Ž But he excluded any mention of the fact that, following a massive public outcry, including from members of his own family, he reversed course earlier this week and ended the practice of separating families illegally crossing the southern border into the U.S. Trump sharply criticized Hellers Democratic opponent, Rep. Jacky Rosen, and tagged her with one of the derisive nicknames hes fond of giving his opponents: Wacky Jacky.Ž Wacky Jacky is campaigning with Pocahontas. Do you believe this?Ž Dead bodies found at Walmart stores in Brevard is phenomenonTrump pushes tough immigration stance in Nevada appearanceBy J.D. GALLOPFLORIDA TODAYBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ The Justice Department says it has given House Republicans new classi“ed information related to the Russia investigation after lawmakers had threatened to hold of“cials in contempt of Congress or even impeach them. A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday that the department has partially complied with subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after of“cials turned over more than a thousand new documents this week. House Republicans had given the Justice Department and FBI a Friday deadline for all documents, most of which are related to the origins of the FBIs Russia investigation and the handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary Clintons emails. Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said the department asked for more time and they will get it „ for now. Our efforts have resulted in the committees “nally getting access to information that was sought months ago, but some important requests remain to be completed,Ž Strong said in a statement Saturday. Additional time has been requested for the outstanding items, and based on our understanding of the process we believe that request is reasonable. We expect the department to meet its full obligations to the two committees.Ž The efforts by the Justice Department over the last week to deliver documents DOJ gives Congress new classified documents on Russia probeBy MARY CLARE JALONICKASSOCIATED PRESSHARARE, Zimbabwe „ Zimbabwes president was unscathed Saturday by an explosion at a campaign rally that state media called an attempt to assassinate him, later visiting his two injured vice presidents and declaring the cowardly actŽ will not disrupt next months historic elections. Dramatic footage showed a smiling President Emmerson Mnangagwa walking off the stage and into a crowded tent where the blast occurred seconds later, sending up smoke as people screamed and ran for cover. Of“cials said Mnangagwa was whisked from the stadium rally to a nearby government building in Bulawayo, a traditional opposition stronghold.

Nine police of“cials were arrested, state media reported. Witnesses said a man tried to throw the grenade at the stage as Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed waved to the cheering crowd of tens of thousands shortly after he made a strong appeal for unity following months of anti-government protests. Addressing the nation minutes after he was rushed to safety, Abiy called the blast a wellorchestrated attackŽ but one that failed. He did not lay blame and said police were investigating.

The lawsuits were “led in federal courts in New York City and Spokane, Washington, by four different Planned Parenthood af“liates covering New York City and the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska and Washington. Planned Parenthood says the lawsuits are intended to protect the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program from what they termed ineffective abstinenceonly-until-marriage curriculums. Young people have the right to the information and skills they need to protect their health,Ž Dawn Laguens said in a press release, vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The TrumpPence administration is trying to impose their abstinence-only agenda on young people across the country.Ž Evidence shows such programs do not work, Laguens said. An email sent to the Health and Human Services public relations of“ce was not immediately answered on Friday. In previous court documents, the agency has said it has the right to change its funding priorities. The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program has served about 1.2 million teens in 39 states since it started in 2010. The Trump administration in April announced it would remake the program to push abstinence-only counseling. Last year, the agency informed recipients of 81 teen pregnancy prevention grants that it would terminate their grant agreements two years early, meaning this year. That decision was made after President Trump appointed Valerie Huber as chief of staff for the Of“ce of Assistant Secretary of Health. After her appointment, Huber wrote an article decrying the lack of federal funding for abstinence education and questioned the effectiveness of teen pregnancy prevention grants. In April, a federal judge in Spokane blocked the Trump administration from cutting the grants. Judges in Seattle, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., have made similar rulings. Supporters of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program credit it with helping to lower the teen pregnancy rate 41 percent since 2010. But the agency has issued past statements calling the program ineffective. Congress created the $110 million program in 2010 to support and develop evidence-based ways to reduce teen pregnancy. In 2015, HHS awarded the 81 grants that were to last “ve years. The lawsuits were “led by Planned Parenthood of New York City; Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands; Planned Parenthood of the Heartland; and Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho. They contend that abstinence-only programs can contain false and misleading information and stigmatize teens who have sex. Most people have had sex by the time theyre 18,Ž Planned Parenthood said in a press release. In addition to the agency, the lawsuits name as defendants HHS Secretary Alex Azar and Huber.Lawsuits challenge efforts to push abstinence-only on teensBy NICHOLAS K. GERANIOSASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOVeteran given $15K in lawn equipment after theft Houston heart transplant hospital could lose Medicaid fundsArkansas to evaluate river sinkhole where kayaker diedTULSA, Okla. (AP) „ A veteran in Oklahoma whose life and business were disrupted when his lawn equipment was stolen no longer needs to face acres of grass using a push mower. The Tulsa World reports Cody Nichols on Friday received $15,000 worth of new lawn-mowing equipment through the nonpro“t group Soldiers Wish. The Tulsa-based organization works to meet the needs of military veterans. Nichols, who served in the Marines, operates Our Troops Services. The small business hires veterans for landscaping, fencing and construction jobs. The theft occurred early May 20. Nichols arrived to discover all of the equipment was gone. He tried to get by with a couple of donated push mowers, but fell behind. Nichols now has a commercial riding mower thanks to Fridays presentation at Bloss Equipment. HOUSTON (AP) „ A Houston hospital that suspended its renowned heart transplant program for two weeks amid scrutiny following the deaths of two patients could lose federal Medicaid funding. Baylor St. Lukes Medical Center was noti“ed Friday that Medicare plans to halt funding to its heart transplant program on Aug. 17, the Houston Chronicle reports Federal of“cials, raising concerns about two deaths in May, said the LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) „ Arkansas has hired a consultant to evaluate a stretch of river where a kayaker was dragged to his death when a rare sinkhole created a whirlpool. Commissioner of State Lands John Thurston says experts will begin evaluating the Spring River on Monday. The sinkhole area is closed to the public. Of“cials say 64-yearold Donald Wright of Searcy died in the June 9 accident near Saddler Falls. A statement from Thurstons of“ce says the matter is of utmost importance, especially with the anticipated increase of traf“c with the upcoming July Fourth holiday. Of“cials say sinkholes are common in the northern half of Arkansas, where subterranean limestone easily erodes. Its unusual to have a sinkhole open a whirlpool in the middle of a stream. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONhospital has not done enough to “x shortcomings that endanger patients. St. Lukes temporary suspension of its heart transplant program came after joint reports by the Chronicle and ProPublica. The hospital reopened the program on June 15 after “nding no systemic issues related to the quality of the program.Ž It said it was reorganizing its transplant surgery team, re“ning the criteria for which patients it would accept for heart transplants and making other improvements to strengthen the program. The funding withdrawal by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would threaten the hospitals viability, experts contend, depriving it of an essential source of funding. The termination could trigger private insurance companies to follow suit. St. Lukes, in a statement, said it looks forward to discussing CMS concerns with agency of“cials. The hospital said it believes it is eligible to take further corrective steps, including a systems improvement agreement, which would provide a long-term path forward for our program.Ž Our unwavering focus is always to ensure our patients receive the best possible medical care, and in ways that re”ect our core values of reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence,Ž the hospital said. Systems improvement agreements, when they occur, are usually “rst offered by CMS, not requested by a hospital. No such agreement was offered in the CMS letter. St. Lukes can appeal the termination, but that wont freeze the process, according to Medicare rules.AP FILE PHOTOThis June 10, photo provided by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission shows a whirlpool along the Spring River in northeastern Arkansas.

Police of“cers nearby quickly restrained him, he said. Then we heard the explosion.Ž Nine police of“cials were arrested, including the deputy head of the capitals police commission, state broadcaster ETV reported. AP video from the scene showed bloodstained ground and abandoned shoes while people chanting the prime ministers name ”ed, some clutching their heads in shock and despair. The attack was cheap and unacceptable,Ž the prime minister said, and added: Love always wins. Killing others is a defeat. To those who tried to divide us, I want to tell you that you have not succeeded.Ž The ruling party in a statement blamed desperate anti-peace elementsŽ and vowed to continue with the countrys reforms. The explosion in packed Meskel Square in Addis Ababa followed weeks of dramatic changes that shocked many in the East African nation after years of anti-government tensions, states of emergency, thousands of arrests and long internet shutdowns. The 42-year-old Abiy took of“ce in April and quickly announced the release of tens of thousands of prisoners, the opening of state-owned companies to private investment and the unconditional embrace of a peace deal with rival Eritrea. Websites were unblocked and opposition “gures were invited to dinner. Ethiopians said they could hardly keep up with the pace of change. Saturdays rally began as a show of exuberance, with supporters wearing clothes displaying Abiys image and carrying signs saying One Love, One Ethiopia.Ž Informal in a neon green T-shirt, Abiy told the tens of thousands of supporters that change was coming and there was no turning back. After the explosion the state broadcaster quickly cut away from coverage of the rally, which broke up with people singing, chanting and going back to their homes. Ive never thought this day will come in Ethiopia. Im very emotional right now,Ž said supporter Mulugeta Sema, who wore a T-shirt with the new leaders image and spoke before the blast. We should never get back to dictatorship. This is time for change.Ž In a sign of the new effort at dialogue between bitter rivals after a deadly border war and years of skirmishes, one Eritrean diplomat, ambassador to Japan Estifanos Afeworki, said on Twitter that his country strongly condemns the attempt to incite violenceŽ in Saturdays attack. The United States has been among those in the international community expressing support for the dramatic changes in Ethiopia, a key security ally in a turbulent region with neighbors including Somalia and South Sudan. Not everyone has cheered the changes. Some Ethiopians in the north near the border with Eritrea, one of the worlds most reclusive nations, have protested the embrace of the peace deal. And the Tigrayan Peoples Liberation Front, a party in Ethiopias ruling coalition that has been the dominant force in government for most of the past 27 years, said the announcement on the peace deal had been made before the ruling coalitions congress met to discuss it: We see this as a ”aw.Ž Abiy is the “rst prime minister from the Oromo ethnic group, the largest in the country, since the ruling party came to power in 1991. Ethiopias sometimes deadly protests demanding more freedoms began in the Oromia and Amhara regions in late 2015 and spread elsewhere, “nally leading to the resignation of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn early this year.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1about multiple attempts on his life in the past, said he was used to them by now. At least eight people were injured, the staterun Herald newspaper reported. Vice President Kembo Mohadi had leg injuries, while Constantino Chiwenga, a second vice president and the former military commander, had bruises on his face, the report said. Most of the injured were discharged from a hospital after treatment, presidential spokesman George Charamba told the newspaper. The blast and the lack of clarity about who was behind it injected new uncertainty into preparations for the July 30 elections, the “rst since longtime leader Robert Mugabe stepped down in November after a military takeover. Mnangagwa, who had been “red as Mugabes deputy in a ruling party feud shortly before the power transition, took over with pledges to deliver free and fair elections. Mnangagwa said on Twitter that he was awaiting further information about the blast but added, without elaborating, that those responsible must have come from outside Bulawayo.Ž He added: I can assure you these are my normal enemies.Ž He had ”ed Zimbabwe shortly after his “ring in November by Mugabe, who along with his wife, Grace, had sharply criticized the man who had been his closest con“dant for many years. Zimbabwes main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, said on Twitter: Our prayers go out to the injured and we hope no lives have been lost. Violence must have no place in our politics.  The United States and Britain were among countries that condemned the explosion. Zimbabwes election next month will be the “rst without Mugabe since independence from white minority rule in 1980. Mnangagwa, a former justice and defense minister who served for decades as Mugabes enforcer, has invited Western election observers for the “rst time in almost two decades. Past votes have been marked by violence and fraud, and the United States and others have said a credible vote is key to lifting international sanctions.ZIMBABWEFROM PAGE 1 BRUSSELS „ With another migrant rescue ship stranded in the Mediterranean and both Italy and Malta again refusing to let it dock, European Union leaders will try to “nd common ground for tackling a growing political crisis that is threatening to undermine the entire EU. The leaders of about 16 countries „ more than half the 28-nation bloc „ will take part in what is being billed as informal talksŽ in Brussels on Sunday ahead of a full EU summit next Thursday and Friday, where migration will top the agenda. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the meeting involves talking with particularly affected nations about all problems connected with migration.Ž She said the hope is to see if we can reach bi-, trior even multinational agreements to better solve certain problems.Ž The arrival of more than one million people in 2015, most ”eeing wars in Syria and Iraq, exposed glaring de“ciencies in EU migrant reception capacities and asylum laws. It has fueled tensions among EU nations and anti-migrant parties have won votes in Europe by fomenting public fears of foreigners. These rescue ships can forget about reaching Italy,Ž Italys new “rebrand interior minister, Matteo Salvini, said Saturday as he assured his anti-migrant base that he would crushŽ the human traf“cking business. At the heart of the problem lie deep divisions over who should take responsibility for arriving migrants „ often Mediterranean countries like Italy, Greece and increasingly Spain „ how long they should be required to accommodate them, and what should be done to help those EU countries hardest hit. The problem was crystalized last week in a row between Italys new populist government, Malta and France over who should take responsibility for 630 people rescued from the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Libya, the main departure point for people trying to reach Europe. Amid the mud-slinging, Spains new Socialist government agreed to take charge of the migrants and the ship eventually made a weeklong voyage to Valencia. On Saturday, Spain also announced it had rescued 569 more migrants at sea, many from boats in the Strait of Gibraltar, a busy shipping lane with treacherous currents. But another rescue ship, the Lifeline of the German NGO Mission Lifeline, was stranded in the Mediterranean off Malta after both Italy and Malta refused to let it dock with its 234 migrants. Lifeline said a merchant vessel, the Alexander Maersk, had another 113 migrants and was also waiting for a port to receive them. Salvini has demanded that Malta, the EUs smallest country, allow the Lifeline to dock because it was in the islands waters. Maltese authorities on Saturday provided humanitarian assistance to the Lifelines passengers but Maltese Premier Joseph Muscat stood “rm and insisted that Malta had no responsibilityŽ for the rescue. The Lifeline should move from its position toward their original destination to prevent escalationŽ of the situation, Muscat tweeted. The rhetoric ahead of the Sunday summit extended north, with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz saying his country would reintroduce controls on its border with Italy if neighboring Germany were to turn back migrants at its border to Austria. Like everything to do with migrants in Europe lately, even this meeting is proving controversial. What started as talks between half a dozen leaders now involves at least 16, as others demanded to take part. Four countries in Eastern Europe „ the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia „ have refused to attend and reject taking in migrants in general. Referring to hasty arrangements and a domestic crisis over migration policies within Germanys coalition government, the fervently anti-migrant Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, said: We understand that countries have domestic political dif“culties, but this cant result in pan-European confusion.Ž This is an open invitation. Nobody is excluded, everybody is invited. Nobody is forced to attend either,Ž said Alexander Winterstein, spokesman for the European Commission, where the talks will take place. With plans to reform Europes asylum laws bogged down, EU leaders hope to stop migrants leaving North Africa by paying countries like Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia to hold people until their eligibility for asylum can be established. French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday proposed that migrants arriving in Europe be placed in closed centers on European soilŽ so authorities can quickly decide whether they are eligible to apply for asylum and send home those who dont qualify. Speaking in Paris after meeting with new Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Macron said European countries would take in migrants who qualify to apply for asylum, helping to remove the burden of caring for them from Mediterranean nations on the front line like Italy or Spain. Italy has proposed these asylum-processing hotspotsŽ be located in the migrants countries of origin or transit. Ironically, the tough talk comes as the number of migrants entering Europe is dropping signi“cantly. The U.N.s refugee agency says around 80,000 people are expected to arrive by sea this year, about half the number from 2017. We do not have a crisis of numbers. We continue to have a crisis of political will,Ž said UNHCR Europe chief Sophie Magennis.Debate over migrants divides EU; Mini-summit seeks solutionsBy LORNE COOK and NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESS MISSION LIFELINE VIA APIn this photo taken on Thursday, the ship operated by the German NGO Mission Lifeline rescues migrants from a rubber boat in the Mediterranean Sea in front of the Libyan coast.IS demands release of Iraq women prisoners in hostage video Israelis, Palestinians await Williams inaugural royal visit 4 dead in suspected Boko Haram extremist attack in Nigeria Egypt officer who thought to break Israeli Bar Lev diesBAGHDAD (AP) „ The Islamic State group released a hostage video on Saturday demanding the release of all Sunni women prisoners from Iraqi jails. The group said it was giving the government a deadline of three days before it would execute the six men in the video, who identi“ed themselves as Iraqi policemen and militiamen. The video was published on jihadist social media groups, one week after the Islamic State group announced it had kidnapped 17 policemen and members of Iraqs Popular Mobilization Forces, which are predominantly Shiite militia groups that “ght for the government. A string of kidnappings claimed by IS on the highway connecting Baghdad to the north of the country has raised concerns about lingering threat posed by the group, after Iraqi forces recaptured the city of Mosul last year. Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has come under pressure in recent weeks to explain the gaps in security outside the capital. A spokesman for the Iraqi military said he was aware of the hostage video and said the armed forces were pursuing the IS sleeper cell it believes is responsible.

The Bureau of Land Management in Alaska on Tuesday asked the publics help in recovering an approximately 10,000-year-old tusk stolen from the Campbell Creek Science Center, in east Anchorage. The woolly mammoth is Alaskas official state fossil. The tusk was on display when the center was burglarized March 8. Anchorage police say a thief broke in through a window and only took the tusk, which weighs 100 pounds. The curved tusk is darkand light-brown, mottled and about 5.5 feet long. The tusk is 8 inches in diameter on the large end and 6 inches in diameter at the narrow end. BLM spokeswoman Maureen Clark said the tusk was one of several found in the 1980s near the Colville River, which flows into the Arctic Ocean.ODD NEWS A theft of mammoth proportions ALMANAC Today is Sunday, June 24, the 175th day of 2018.

Dear Mr. Berko: Please explain to me what a business development company is and how it works. Also, my brother, who is a certi“ed public accountant, has recommended that I buy 1,000 shares of Main Street Capital. What do you think? „ SP, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Dear SP: Business development companies were initiated by Congress in 1980. The goal of BDCs is to encourage the ”ow of public dollars (your investible funds) to private businesses. Generally, BDCs invest at least 70 percent of their cash in private U.S. companies or in public U.S. companies with market values of less than $250 million. And these BDCs must send quarterly, as well as annual, reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission and to their shareholders. Owning a BDC (only 55 are publicly traded) allows shareholders to have their cake and eat it, too. They enjoy the liquidity of a publicly traded stock while participating in the potential pro“t of private companies. A BDC must qualify as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code; distribute 98 percent of its ordinary income and 98 percent of net capital gains for one year; derive at least 90 percent of gross income from dividends, interest and capital gains; have no more than 25 percent of their assets invested in the securities of one company or two or more issues that are engaged in the same or similar business activities, limit its debt-to-equity ratio to 1-to-1 or less, and revalue its private investments every quarter. Like real estate investment trusts, BDCs are not taxed at the corporate level, as long as they pay out the required income to shareholders. This avoids double taxation and allows BDC investments to pay higher dividends than common stock. But theres a string attached, because a large percentage of a BDCs cash distribution is considered ordinary income and is taxed at the shareholders higher tax rate (33 percent to 39.6 percent) rather than the 15 percent rate for quali“ed dividends. For this reason, it makes good sense to own BDC investments in an individual retirement account, where distributions are deferred, or in a Roth IRA, where theyre exempt from taxation. Your brothers a smart lad. I like his recommendation of Main Street Capital (MAIN-$38), which specializes in longterm equity and debt investments primarily in smalland lower-middle-market companies. This is a classy BDC. MAIN primarily invests in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the U.S. Management typically invests between $2 million and $75 million in equity and between $5 million and $50 million in debt with companies that have revenues between $10 million and $150 million and an EBITDA „ or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization „ of $1 million to $20 million. Management usually requires a “xed interest rate between 12 and 14 percent. And these investments are typically in the form of secured debt and equity participation „ and oftentimes the equity participation can be a very attractive kicker. MAINs management likes to make loans to well-established family-run businesses that need “nancing for founders who want to pass their companies to heirs. MAINs loans are highly collateralized. And rising interest rates may not affect MAIN as they will other BDCs. Rather, they will increase earnings, because 72 percent of MAINs loans have ”oating rates. MAIN has a better record than most BDCs. Compared with its peer companies, it has impressive operating margins of 83.5 percent, a 5.1 percent return on capital and a 35 percent cash ”ow, which are nearly twice those of its competitors. Since 2010, revenues and net income have grown fourfold, and the dividend has doubled. MAIN currently pays a monthly dividend of 19 cents a share, plus a 27.5-cent semiannual dividend. Total 2017 payout was $2.83, making for a very acceptable yield of 7.5 percent. And 2018 is looking better than any year in MAINs history, so expect a nice dividend increase. Listen to your brother.

She says, I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.Ž Sanders treatment at the restaurant created a social media commotion with people on both sides weighing in with their critique, including her father, former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Bigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the Hate Plate,Ž Huckabee said in a tweet, quickly generating 2,000 replies in about 30 minutes. And appetizers are small plates for small minds.Ž On Yelp, a reviewer of the restaurant from Los Angeles wrote: Dont eat here if youre a Republican, wearing a MAGA hat or a patriot.Ž But many reviewers were also supportive of the restaurant owners actions. 12/10 would recommend. Bonus: this place is run by management who stuck up for their beliefs and who are true Americans. THANK YOU!!!!Ž wrote a reviewer from Commerce City, Colorado. No one answered the phone at the restaurant, which was not scheduled to open until the evening. Lexington is about a three-hour drive from the nations capital and is in Virginias Shenandoah Valley. The separation of families trying to enter the U.S. at the southern border has intensi“ed political differences and passions that were already at elevated levels during the Trump presidency.

In each case, of“cers turn up in environmental suits and masks, sorting through the grisly discoveries, from pill bottles to notepads and photos left behind, hoping to piece together the lives of people like Unger who ended up in the parking lots. The bodies „ the shell of their physical humanity faded and decomposed by the elements „ are carefully removed and turned over to medical examiners. Family members, if any can be found, are contacted. Across the nation, the stories bear similar refrains: € In California, a woman missing for months turned up dead. Investigators said the womans body remained in the car, parked at the retailer, for up to three months. € In Illinois, the body of a 49-year-old man who was reported missing for more than a month, was found dead May 18, in a van at a Bradley, Illinois, Walmart. He was seen going into the store on May 1 and then leaving a short time later. He died of natural causes, according to media reports. € In Ohio, police said a 59-year-old man found April 17, in a pickup truck at an Airport Thruway Walmart, died of natural causes. The body was in the truck, parked on the side of the retail store since April 8, authorities report. € Here in Florida, a Walmart employee walking the parking aisles Feb. 22, at a Tarpon Springs store reported a strong odor. Of“cers arrived and found an unidenti“ed body. Police suspected suicide. Walmart has a longstanding corporate policy that anyone is welcome to stay in their parking lots overnight, depending on local laws. The open-lot policies vary from area to area, depending on the store managers. Most of the people we see are actually travelers, people in RVs. Theres like a whole society or culture out there. We do go out and check the lots, get the cars and keep an eye out for trash, but our workers arent peeping into peoples cars,Ž said Casey Staheli, a spokesman for Walmart, whose corporate of“ces are based in Arkansas. Unfortunately, they might smell something and thats when its brought to our attention.Ž Other retailers besides Walmart see similar deaths in their parking areas. A West Melbourne McDonalds was the site of another gruesome discovery in April 2017 when a mans body was found inside a van. He had overdosed. But none are as pervasive or as consistent as the ones that happen at Walmart, which has about 4,000 stores nationwide. Truckers, recreational vehicle enthusiasts, and others view parking spaces as prime locations to “nd rest. Weary travelers see the stores as friendly and convenient, modern meccas for the nations transient, mobile culture. Inside are restrooms, lower-priced groceries, medical supplies and even portable grills for cooking. Theres also hot coffee, newspapers, and smiles from greeters. Others also “nd the lots „ despite the hustle and bustle or the sound of the occasional bass-heavy car blasting music „ as places of safety and belonging. Tommy Studstill, a Cocoa minister who advocates for the homeless, readies hygiene products, food, and clothes for clients who colonize diverse locations from wooded areas to store lots. Some who may be living in their automobiles are transient, struggling to hold on to jobs, Studstill says. Some park at Walmart in the cool of night and then move on to other sites in the heat of the day. But not everyone who sleeps at Walmart is homeless. They just might not be able to afford a motel room. Walmart is one of the very few retailers that would say, Look, dont cause us any problems and you can go ahead and sleep in the parking lot,Ž he said. These are people who stay low-key. For some, its extremely embarrassing to be homeless, sleeping in a car. I know one man whose family lives in a car. During the daytime, the wife drops him off at work. Thats why I will have to give Walmart credit for what theyre doing,Ž Studstill said. According to estimates from the Brevard Homeless Coalition, about 845 people „ sheltered and unsheltered „ in Brevard County are homeless, according to statistics from 2017. And many use Walmart as a way station, or a place to “nd supplies or even live from time to time, says the groups executive director Mark Broms. For others like Unger, though, the lure of the open road has led them to abandon houses and apartments and live in their vehicles. Unger, who chose to be homeless for the last decade of his life, had been writing letters to his son, talking about his exploits and a life untethered to marterialistic values. The two last talked face to face about two years ago. He was a philosopher, a wisdom-seeker,Ž said Charles Unger of his father, whose remains were found at the Melbourne Walmart. Toward the end, the man who loved the Eastern teachings of Indian gurus, saw Walmart and its parking lot as another place of solace.WALMARTFROM PAGE 1CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) „ Politicians and friends from across the country are sending thoughts and prayers to Republican U.S. House candidate Katie Arrington after she was seriously injured in a car crash in South Carolina. President Donald Trump posted on Twitter he was thinking about Arrington. U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford also sent prayers to Arrington over Twitter. Arrington defeated Sanford in the June 12 primary thanks to strong support from Trump. Authorities say Arrington was the passenger in a car that was hit head on Friday night by another vehicle on U.S. Highway 17 near Charleston. Arringtons campaign says she suffered a broken back and ribs and will be hospitalized for two weeks. Authorities say the driver of her car, 59-yearold Jacqueline Goff of Mandeville, Louisiana, also suffered serious injuries. The driver of the other vehicle died at the scene, according to Sheriffs Capt. Roger Antonio.

Invest only in companies and industries you have studied and understand well. Weigh the risks that companies disclose in their financial statements. Consider a stocks valuation. Assess the market capitalization, expected future earnings and price-to-sales and price-to-earnings ratios for candidates for your portfolio. Stocks that seem undervalued should offer less downside risk than exciting high-flying stocks. 4. Avoid penny stocks (those costing less than about $5 per share), commodities, futures, day trading, shorting and investing on margin. Those can be risky ways of investing. 5. Consider not investing in any or many individual stocks and just opting for a low-fee S&P 500 index fund. Youll match the markets returns effortlessly. The stock market can be volatile, but over the long run, its one of the most effective ways to build wealth.The Motley Fool TakeProfitable RelationshipsTheres a fast-growing kind of software out there „ specializing in customer relationship management (CRM) „ and the dominant company in the business is salesforce. com (NYSE: CRM). Its systems help companies keep track of and manage their relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers „ and analyze that data, too. Shares of Salesforce have more than tripled in value over the past five years, and many analysts expect continued robust growth. Why? Well, the market for CRM software is expected to surge from a recent $72 billion to $123 billion by 2021. According to industry analyst IDC, Salesforce gained more market share than the rest of the 20 largest CRM suppliers combined in 2017. The companys market share gains are helping to produce tremendous increases in revenue and cash flow, with Salesforces revenue popping 25 percent over year-ago levels in the last quarter to $3 billion, along with a 25 percent gain in free cash flow, to $1.3 billion. Looking even further ahead, Salesforce is on pace to hit its goal of generating $21 billion to $23 billion in annual revenue by fiscal 2022. Catalysts for further growth include Salesforces incorporation of artificial intelligence in its offerings and its recent acquisition of MuleSoft, which will expand its cloud computing capabilities. Long-term investors seeking growth should take a closer look at Salesforce. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Salesforce.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentBefore and AfterUgh. My dumbest investment was in an offshore drilling company that was recommended by a TV stock guru. I bought into the stock when the price of a barrel of oil was still in triple digits. I kept adding as the price of oil continued to crash „ hey! Ill end up with a lower cost basis! I lost a lot of money. Im keeping the shares as a reminder of how not to build up my portfolio. Ive learned a lot since that investment, as Ive spent a lot of time reading The Motley Fool. Before, my IRA was managed by my broker and invested in aggressiveŽ mutual funds. Now Im sticking with stock in high-quality companies. Before, I would buy more shares of sinking companies. Now I buy more shares of solidly performing companies „ even if their prices are going up. Before, Id panic when the stock market retreated. Now I get excited about sale prices. Before, my returns trailed the S&P 500. Now, Ive been outperforming it. „ C.B., Los Angeles The Fool Responds: It can be tempting to buy more shares of a falling stock, as it might seem like more of a bargain. But stocks often fall for good reasons. Always dig deeply into the situation before committing any more money. Make sure that any problems you discover seem to be temporary, not permanent, ones. Growth or Value?QShould I invest in growth stocksŽ or value stocksŽ „ which is better? „ G.G., Portland, OregonAYou dont have to choose one or the other „ some of the best stocks to invest in are both.Growth stocks are tied to companies that are increasing their revenue and earnings relatively rapidly, while value stocks are tied to companies with market values significantly below what they seem to really be worth. If you find a company thats growing at a solid clip and it seems to be undervalued, thats a very appealing proposition, offering a good chance of stock price appreciation. Its best, overall, though, to favor undervalued stocks. Even if they grow slowly, they offer a margin of safety by not being overpriced.***QAre secondary offerings and subsequent offerings the same thing? „ K.F., Muskegon, MichiganASubsequent offerings are often called secondary offerings, but the two events are different. When a company goes public,Ž it issues stock in itself via an initial public offering (IPO) on the open market. Its common for insiders or large investors to keep sizable ownership stakes in the company, with only a portion of shares sold in the IPO. If these big investors later sell some of their shares to the public, thats a secondary offering, and the investors collect the sales proceeds, not the company. A subsequent (or follow-on) offering happens if the company wants or needs to raise more money later (perhaps to pay down debt, finance operations or buy another company).

Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolLower Your RiskIt can seem like investing in stocks is a crapshoot, as stocks can go up or down on any given day, but it doesnt have to be so risky. Here are some ways to reduce your risk. 1. Invest for the long haul. Shortterm investing is more like speculating or gambling. Being a shareholder means youre a part-owner in a company, so commit yourself to those businesses and aim to stay invested in them as long as they remain healthy and growing. With a long investing period, you can ride out the occasional market downturns that will likely occur. Dont worry about what happens this year if you dont plan to sell for many years. 2. Learn more. The savvier you become about investing, the fewer mistakes youll likely make. Dont buy stocks merely on tips from friends or strangers without even knowing what a company does. Instead, read widely and keep reading. Start with books by Peter Lynch, John Bogle, The Motley Fool „ or the Little BookŽ series 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Whats required of you is basically attendance. If you cover that part of it, the rest will happen quite naturally out of the moment. In other words, just show up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Theres only one you. So you dont have to worry about being original or saying something novel or turning in unique work. It will be unique just because it came from you. Thats good. And that is enough. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The time you spend following, observing and studying those you admire will not be in vain. It might feel as if youre loang o, but youre not. Theres great, if intangible, value in these interests. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be careful not to attribute special qualities to people just because they happen to be attractive. Try to see what is instead of making assumptions about what probably is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its wonderful to understand and be understood, but its not necessary to love. You can still love someone you dont really get. You can still love someone you dont communicate well with. Love goes beyond these things. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel a bit invisible in some way. Theres a positive side to this. You can get much done under the radar. Take advantage of the freedom and creativity that come when nobody is paying very close attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). We are all fragile. We dont all look it, though. Be gentle with the people in your life, as there is probably more ego on the line today than is readily apparent. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Keep in mind that oftentimes the most inuential and p ositive thin g you can do for mankind isnt grand at all; rather, it is small. To take care of yourself and treat yourself in a loving manner is a good start. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Figure out what youre going to do when the pressure is on. You wont be able to tell when its coming or where its coming from, but when youre ready for unpredictable stressors, they will seem far less stressful to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ending up where you started can be wonderful or terrible. Its wonderful if you traveled far and wide like Dorothy down the yellow brick lane to Oz.

They are both married, live across the street from each other and spend time together almost every day. Their children play together. I spend a lot of time with both families, and my children play with theirs. Jane is having an aair with Marys husband and has conded in me about every detail. She keeps telling me its over, and then I nd out it isnt. I spoke to Marys husband and told him if it doesnt stop, Ill tell Mary. (Jane doesnt know I talked to him.) They recently had another weak moment.Ž Should I tell Mary whats going on? Her husband has cheated in the past, and she chose to stay with him. Im afraid the fallout from her nding out will be two broken marriages and several broken friendships. Its very dicult to spend time with any/all of them knowing what I know. I feel like my silence is betraying Mary. Help! „ WISH I DIDNT KNOW DEAR WISH: You are already more involved in this than you should be, and Jane should not have placed you in that position. Mary knows she has a philandering husband but chose to remain with him. I vote for keeping your lip zipped and trying to stay out of the line of re. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 38 years. We divorced once, but remarried. We have four grown sons and six grandchildren. He retired a year and a half ago, and I went through menopause. There has been constant contention since. He wants to ght over everything and wont speak to me for days, sometimes weeks, at a time. I feel I am being emotionally abused. When I asked him for another divorce, he told me not to be ridiculous. Four months ago, I moved out and moved in with my dad to be his caretaker. Dad is 95 and on home hospice. I am so much happier not living with my husband. When my father passes away, I dread having to move back with my husband. I know we probably need counseling, but he doesnt agree. I want to live a happy, peaceful life. My husband seems to enjoy the constant ghting. Should I get my own place and live apart from my husband when my dad passes? „ UNHAPPILY MARRIED IN UTAH DEAR UNHAPPILY MARRIED: Your husbands silent treatment qualies as emotional abuse. You do NOT have to tolerate it. Before making plans about where you will live after your fathers passing, discuss this with a lawyer. Marriage isnt slavery, and you do not need your abusers permissionŽ to divorce him (again). DEAR ABBY: I am suddenly encountering workplace hostility from someone I thought was my friend.

Use your smartphone or digital camera to take pictures or videos of jewelry, antiques, paintings, computer equipment or anything of sentimental value.

Watermelon is aptly named because its more than 90 percent water and surprisingly, its a member of the cucumber family.

Take these steps to prevent it from getting there in the rst place: After you and your family members leave the beach, and before getting to the car, have baking soda or baby powder on hand. Sprinkle a healthy amount of it on the top and bottom of everyones feet and in between the toes because it will help to get the sand o quickly. To keep sand from getting on car seats, buy cheap plastic shower curtains and drape them over the seat.

Dont throw them out. Instead, freeze them, which will keep their avor and aroma. You will have fresh herbs yearround to liven up many dishes. Heres what to do: 1. Stem the herbs, and blanch in lightly salted, boiling water for just 5 to 10 seconds. Drain the water. 2. Put the herbs into a bowl of ice water. When cool, drain and pat dry well with a paper towel. 3. Place the herbs into sealed freezer bags and store in the freezer. „ HeloiseWoman is put in the middle of a neighborhood aair with friendsDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 to the House Republicans appear to have at least temporarily diffused a monthslong standoff with Congress. Democrats have criticized the multiple document requests, charging that they are intended to discredit the department and distract from or even undermine special counsel Robert Muellers investigation into the Trump campaigns Russia ties and whether there was obstruction of justice. In a letter sent to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., late Friday, the Justice Department said it had that day provided a classi“ed letter to his panel regarding whether the FBI used con“dential human sourcesŽ before it of“cially began its Russia investigation in 2016. Bolstered by President Donald Trump, Nunes has been pressing the department on an informant who spoke to members of Trumps campaign as the FBI began to explore the campaigns ties to Russia. Trump has called the matter spygate,Ž though multiple Republicans who have been briefed on the informant have downplayed its signi“cance. In the letter, the Justice Departments acting assistant director of congressional affairs, Jill Tyson, said Nunes had also asked for transcripts of conversations between con“dential human sources and Trump campaign of“cials. She said the department had referred that request to National Intelligence Director Dan Coats. Tysons letter said the department had also given Nunes materials related to the departments guidelines under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Republicans have for months questioned whether the department abused that act when prosecutors and agents in 2016 applied for and received a secret warrant to monitor the communications of Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The department is also working to provide outstanding documents related to former British spy Christopher Steele, Tyson said, and the dossier he compiled of anti-Trump research during the presidential campaign. Trump and congressional Republicans have charged that the research in the dossier, paid for by Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was used inappropriately to obtain the warrant on Page. House Speaker Paul Ryan has backed the document requests, and he led a meeting last week with committee chairmen and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to try to resolve the issue. In a television interview two days after that meeting, on June 17, Nunes said if they dont get the documents by this week, theres going to be hell to payŽ and indicated the House could act on contempt or even impeachment. A spokesman for Nunes did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday. Tyson also wrote House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who have requested more than a million documents as part of multiple investigations into the FBI and Justice Departments handling of the Russia and Clinton probes. Tyson said the department has already provided more than 800,000 documents for review and the FBI produced over 1,400 pages of responsive materialsŽ on Friday, among other documents already sent to the panel. The letter says FBI is also working to address a request about proposed, recommended or actualŽ surveillance on the Clinton Foundation. Tyson said the department was responding in a separate, classi“ed letter, and that the request had proven dif“cult to address.Ž She said the department hoped to talk to lawmakers further about it. In the letters, Tyson said the department had built new toolsŽ to search top secret documents and had diverted resources from other congressional requests.PROBEFROM PAGE 1 Trump said, resurrecting his nickname for Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a vocal Trump critic. When you see that, thats not the senator you want,Ž he added. Rosen quickly responded on Twitter: Is that the best youve got @realDonaldTrump?Ž Outside the hotel, at least 300 people protesting Trumps policy of separating families at the southern border were stretched along a sidewalk outside the Las Vegas casino where the president met behind closed doors with supporters before addressing the Nevada GOP convention. His motorcade drove past a smaller group of people holding signs that said ResistŽ and History Has Its Eyes On You.Ž Trump was also holding a separate event promoting tax cuts he signed into law six months ago before ”ying back to Washington. Heller, a past critic of Trump, had renounced Trump during the campaign as someone who denigrates human beings.Ž Heller suggested he wouldnt vote for Trump, but later said he did. Heller also received a $2,000 donation from Trump in 2015 but gave it to charity. Once in of“ce, Trump publicly scolded Heller for holding up the GOPs long-promised effort to repeal President Barack Obamas health care law. He later repaired his relationship with Trump and helped deliver the rewrite of U.S. tax laws to Trumps desk. Trump intervened in Nevadas Senate race in March and persuaded Hellers main challenger, Danny Tarkanian, to step aside and run for a U.S. House seat instead. Heller has said he didnt ask Trump for the favor. Accompanying Trump to Las Vegas were top former top campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, now acting as outside advisers to the president. Lewandowski joined Trump days after he responded with Wah-wahŽ during a Fox News Channel appearance after another panelist raised the case of a 10-year-old disabled girl who had been separated from her parents under Trumps immigration policy. Attendees lined up to have their photos taken with Lewandowski before Trump took the stage. Trump has stepped up the pace of his political appearances in recent weeks. He campaigned in Minnesota this week for a GOP House candidate, to be followed by a stop Monday in South Carolina to boost Gov. Henry McMasters fortunes in a Republican gubernatorial runoff on Tuesday. Trump is also scheduled to appear in North Dakota on Wednesday on behalf of Republican Kevin Cramer, who is challenging U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat seeking another six-year term in a state Trump won by 36 percentage points in 2016.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1BLAINE, Wash.

By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay Times Besides the continual evolution of their intriguing pit ching plan, the primary topics of conversation for the Rays over the next several weeks will be trades and prospects. And not mutually exclusively. Some sooner than others, the Rays are going to clear out a number of veterans. Catcher Wilson Ramos should bring a good return, and SS Adeiny Hechavarria „ even though all teams know they need to trade him „ at least something. This seems like the year theyd deal starter Chris Archer, if healthy, for a haul. Outfielder Carlos Gomez and relievers Jonny Venters and Sergio Romo are likely to go one way or another to open roster space, maybe starter Nathan Eovaldi, too. If the offer is right, infielder Matt Duffy and reliever Chaz Roe also could be dealt. And while the Rays have already brought up several promising prospects, such as infielders Willy Adames, Christian Arroyo and Jake Bauers, plus reliever Diego Castillo and outfielder Johnny Field, they have more coming. By the end of the season, you could see relievers Ian Gibaut, Colin Poche and Jaime Schultz; starter Andrew Moore; infielders Andrew Velazquez and Kean Wong; outfielders Joe McCarthy (pending recovery form a back issue) and Justin Williams, maybe even catcher Nick Ciuffo. The connection comes in the churn, as the Rays „ love it or hate it „ annually trade veterans for prospects. Its how they roll.

He was 0-for-9 at Houston, despite going 7-for-17 in rehab stints at Class A Port Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. Its funny how this game works,Ž he said. I go from squaring every ball up in my rehab assignment, then my swings havent been very good up here, although I was facing some good pitching. I go back to last year on my rehab assignment and I got like three hits in 20-something at-bats. Then I come up and hit like .450. But as long as my body feels good, then I know offensively things will come around.ŽArroyo cautiously optimisticINF Christian Arroyo has had no baseball activities since being put on the 10-day DL after last Saturdays game in New York. He has a left oblique muscle strain. The hope is for him to return before the All-Star break ( J ul y 17). I dont know what the timetable is at all,Ž Arroyo said. Obliques are kind of tricky, so its kind of hard to tell. The good thing is I dont think it was anything significant. It wasnt like I had a severe strain or anything, nothing crazy. ƒ Ive started to do some mobility stuff and Ive been able to get through it.ŽNice start, kidNick Schnell, the Rays third pick in this years draft (No. 32 overall), couldnt have started his professional career any better. Schnell homered in his first at-bat for the Gulf Coast League Rays. He was Indianas Gatorade Player of the Year and hit 15 home runs as a high school senior.RETURNFrom Page 1 scored on Adames single. The Yankees had one hit in eight at-bats with runners in scoring position, including three unsuccessful tries in both the second and third innings. New York was limited to five hits and went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position in a 2-1 loss Friday night.Tanaka timeYankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka, on the 10-day disabled since June 9 with strained left and right hamstrings, will have his first bullpen session Sunday and may start a simulated game Friday. If you look back two weeks ago there was no way I would be able to move the way that I did today,Ž Tanaka said through a translator. Its definitely better.ŽRAYSFrom Page 1 look at whats potentially the infield of the future. Adames, Arroyo, Bauers and Daniel Robertson were all acquired as minor leaguers (Arroyo had some time with the Giants) of various levels of notoriety in deals for big-name veterans. (Of the prospects still coming, Poche, Moore, Velasquez and Williams also were acquired in trade.) It just speaks to the Rays and their development and being educated, that they knew who to go after at the time,Ž Robertson said. Now that were all here hopefully its going to pay off for a long time, so thats cool.Ž Heres a look at the tracks of those trades:Jake Bauers-Wil MyersThe deal: The Rays got Bauers from the Padres as a Class A minor-leaguer in December 2014 as part of the return in the threeteam deal built around Wil Myers (whom the Rays got as a blue-chip Triple-A prospect two years earlier in a big deal with the Royals built around James Shields and Wade Davis). The details: Acquired with C Rene Rivera and RHP Burch Smith from San Diego along with OF Steven Souza Jr. and LHP Travis Ott from Washington for Myers, C Ryan Hanigan, LHP Jose Castillo, RHP Gerardo Reyes. The Nats got RHP Joe Ross and INF Trea Turner from the Padres. The decision: For now, its pretty much on Bauers. Rivera was released, Smith injured and then lost in the Rule 5 draft, Ott is a middle reliever at DoubleA. Souza became the key piece of the return (though the Rays regrettably gave up future star Turner, who will be at the Trop Monday), playing three seasons with some success, earning team MVP honors last year. Then this spring, Souza was traded to Arizona for a package of prospects: LHP Anthony Banda (was in majors, now out for season), INF Nick Solak (Double-A All-Star), RHP Sam McWilliams (Double-A starter), Poche (Triple-A reliever).Daniel Robertson … Ben ZobristThe deal: The Rays got Robertson from the As as a Class A minor-leaguer in January 2015 as part of the return in a deal built around longtime star Ben Zobrist (whom the Rays got as a Double-A players in July 2006 as part of the return, along with RHP Mitch Talbot, in a salary dump deal of Aubrey Huff). The details: Acquired with C/DH John Jaso, OF Boog Powell and cash from Oakland for Zobrist and SS Yunel Escobar. The decision: Robertson was the key piece once the Rays decided to deal and not re-sign Zobrist, and could dump the unwanted Escobar into the deal. Jaso got hurt opening day 2015, missed three months and left as a free agent, though he went on to play two more seasons for Pittsburgh. Powell was flipped to the Mariners in another deal and has twice been suspended for PEDs but made it to the majors.Willy Adames-David PriceThe deal: The Rays got Adames from the Tigers as a Class A minor-leaguer in July 2014 as part of the return in a deadline deal for 2012 Cy Young Award winner LHP David Price. The details: Acquired with LHP Drew Smyly from Detroit, along with INF Nick Franklin from Seattle, for Price. Seattle also got OF Austin Jackson. The decision: Former Tigers/now Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski said they didnt want to deal Adames, a 2012 international signee, but knew the Rays wouldnt do the deal with them otherwise. Franklin never arrived as promised, Smyly after three injury-marred seasons was traded to Seattle for more prospects „ OF Mallex Smith and LHP Ryan Yarbrough (who are in the majors now), INF Carlos Vargas (playing at rookie-level Princeton).Christian Arroyo-Evan LongoriaThe deal: The Rays got Arroyo from the Giants as Triple-A player with some big-league time in December 2017 as part of the return in a deal for face-of-the-franchise 3B Evan Longoria. The details: Acquired with OF Denard Span, LHP Matt Krook, RHP Stephen Woods from San Francisco for Longoria and cash. The decision: Getting out from under the bulk of the $86 million still owed Longoria was the key, with Arroyo, a local product the Rays have had interest in. considered the key part of the return, though there is some positional uncertainty „ second, third, utility. (He is currently on the DL after playing 21 games). Krook is a reliever at Double-A, Woods on the Class A DL. Span, who was foisted on the Rays with $13 million due, was going to be flipped, and was last month with (with Alex Colome) to Seattle, getting back, you got it, more prospects, Moore (starting at Triple-A) and RHP Tommy Romero (starting at Class A).Short stopsThere was some surprise when the Rays passed on promoting longtime bench coach Dave Martinez to succeed Joe Maddon in 2015 and hired Kevin Cash. But it worked out for all, as Cash has been praised often by his bosses and Martinez won a ring on Maddons Cubs staff and now is managing the Nationals, who visit Monday. There should be a warm welcome for Martinez, who spent three years as a Rays player (logging the first hit in franchise history, so theres your video clip for the tribute) and eight as a coach. Not wanting to give away SS Adeiny Hechavarria and/or eat his remaining $3.2 million is understandable. But given the vexing roster jam the Rays knew was coming with Willy Adames mid-June promotion, its easy (and maybe unfair) to say the Rays should have been proactive and traded Hechavarria when he was playing well (and before he got hurt) in mid-May.Rays rumblingsIs singer Marc Anthony now the biggest name ever to see a game at the Trop? Bigger than Chris Rock? Or Kate Upton? ƒ Did MLB not see the marketing value in bringing Evan Longoria and the Giants to the Trop next year? ƒ Its kind of cool, and a better show, having the Sun Sports preand post-game crew on the road rather than in their Fort Lauderdale studio. ƒ Jim Bowden of the Athletic suggests the Rays trade LHP Blake Snell to the Yankees for prospects OF Clint Frazier, LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson. ƒ Totally spitballin here, but will Kevin Cashs name come up as candidate for the FSU job when Mike Martin retires after next season? ƒ Traded INF Brad Miller hit .185 in his first eight games for Milwaukees Triple-A team with one extra base hit. ƒ Former manager Lou Piniella had a good line last week, saying (Joe) Maddon has basically benefitted from following meŽ as manager of the Rays and (with a couple in between) Cubs. Piniella is looking forward to being back in a Rays uniform for an Aug. 11 corporate sponsor event. ƒ OF Nick Schnell, the Rays third pick in the June draft, was named first-team All-American by Baseball America, top pick LHP Matt Liberatore a second-team selection. ƒ Washingtons Bryce Harper returns this week to the Trop, where as a high schooler in a 2009 home run derby he hit a legendary 502-foot blast with a metal bat. ƒ With two straight blown saves and a velocity drop into the mid-80s following three straight days of work, ex-Ray Brad Boxberger could be losing his grip on Arizonas closers job.TRADESFrom Page 1 Staff ReportsThe Charlotte Stone Crabs used a three-run 10th inning to steal a 4-1 victory from the Palm Beach Cardinals Saturday night. Jermaine Palacios' RBI triple to leadoff the 10th got the scoring going for Charlotte. Robbie Tenerowicz later hit a two-run single to extend the lead. The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the second inning … the only run starting pitcher Brock Burke would allow over four innings of work … before The Stone Crabs eventually tied it in the fifth on an RBI single for Lucius Fox. Alexis Tapia tossed a pair of scoreless innings in relief. Spencer Jones earned the victory for throwing four innings while allowing no runs on four hits with no walks and two strikeouts.

The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3 Associated PressMADISON, Wis. „ Esteban Toledo birdied four of the last six holes for a 6-under 66 and the second-round lead Saturday in the American Family Insurance Championship. Five strokes behind tournament host Steve Stricker after an opening 69 in rain Friday at University Ridge, Toledo had six birdies in a bogey-free round to reach 9-under 135. The 55-year-old Mexican player won the last of his four PGA Tour Champions titles in 2016. Defending champion Fred Couples (67), David Toms (66), Kent Jones (67) and Billy Mayfair (68) were a stroke back. Im surprised that someone isnt 11 or 12 under, but the greens picked up a lot of pace today,Ž Couples said. I think maybe the scoring was a little easier yesterday because we got to clean the ball in the fairways, but its not easy out there.Ž Bernhard Langer (69) was 8 under with Madison player Jerry Kelly (69), Scott McCarron (67), Mark Calcavecchia (68), Paul Goydos (68), Joey Sindelar (68), Glen Day (69) and Brad Bryant (72). The conditions havent been that easy,Ž Kelly said. The pins are in some spots where you cant spin it and you have to hit them firm out of these kind of soft fairways, otherwise you could chunk it. Its not that easy even though the course is gettable. Theres just a few things going on out there to keep the scoring from going too low like it normally does.Ž Stricker followed his opening 64 with a 74, ending his Champions under-par streak at 30 rounds „ the fourth-longest streak in tour history. It just was one of those days where I didnt have a lot of energy,Ž Stricker said. Nothing „ hit very few good shots, really. The couple that I did hit well, I was in bad spots, and a couple bad shots even got worse.Ž He had three bogeys and a birdie „ on the final hole. That was a big birdie in my mind,Ž Stricker said. It kept me a little bit closer. No one ran away with this thing today and three shots back, a lot of guys in between me and the lead. It was a good putt to make and finally get a birdie. That was my only one today.ŽGOLF: PGAToledo takes Champions lead; home star Stricker drops backBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressDALLAS„ The stress of stopping the puck with a game on the line is no sweat compared to what young goaltenders deal with waiting to be taken in the NHL draft. Even the best goaltending prospects usually have to wait through the first round and then some before their names are called. Top-rated Olivier Rodrigue went through that this weekend. No expectation for the draft,Ž Rodrigue said. Totally a mystery. We all know its difficult for a goalie to be selected early.Ž Its nearly impossible now as teams wait until the later rounds to shore up the most important position in the sport. Unlike quarterbacks and pitchers who are often top-10 picks in football and baseball, goaltenders in hockey are so difficult to project that only six have gone in the first round over the past decade „ including none this year. No goaltender has been taken in the top 10 since Carey Price went fifth to Montreal in 2005. In the years since, the philosophy has shifted drastically from trying to hit on an elite goaltender early in the draft to hoping for the best in rounds 2 through 7 like 23 different teams did on Saturday. Theyre so up and down and very few of them dominate,Ž Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. Its hard. There are very few guys that are firstrounders that you can say at 18 are going to be Price or that type of goalie right off the bat. It doesnt happen very often.Ž The first goalie off the board at this years draft was Olof Lindbom 39th to the Rangers. Armed with a successful Swedish goalie in 36-year-old Henrik Lundqvist, New York GM Jeff Gorton called taking Lindbom an opportunity we couldnt pass up.Ž But as Rodrigue knows, teams pass on goalies all the time. His father, Sylvaine, is a goaltending instructor for Edmonton, which traded up to take him 62nd at the end of the second round. Rodrigue was the second of 39 goalies taken in the 2018 draft that followed the recent pattern of the position being in demand but not early. Longtime Los Angeles Kings director of amateur scouting Mark Yanetti believes there havent been many generational goalies like Price and Marc-Andre Fleury recently but also points to the long development curve as a reason why theyre so rarely firstround picks. With the rare, rare, rare exception of like a Carey Price, Fleury, it takes a minimum of probably four to six years for a goalie to develop,Ž Yanetti said. Drafting a goalie very, very high with the success that they tend to have or dont have, „I think its right around 50 percent (odds of) becoming a regular NHL goaltender. Im not even talking about elite.Ž For every Price Fleury and Roberto Luongo who have strong NHL careers, theres a laundry list of top-10 goalies who never panned out. A year after Nashville missed on Brian Finley sixth overall in 1999, Calgary whiffed on Brent Krahn ninth in 2000, and while Al Montoya had a respectable career as a backup, he never lived up to going No. 6 to the Rangers in 2004.NHL: DraftTeams wait on goalies at NHL draftBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressDALLAS „ Ilya Kovalchuk signed with the Kings in his return to the NHL, the Hurricanes and Flames pulled off a five-player trade, and John Tavares will now explore different possibilities for his future. After a dull first round of the draft, action picked up Saturday as teams laid the groundwork for more moves. The biggest is Tavares, who will begin talking to other teams Sunday when the free agent negotiating period opens. The New York Islanders face of the franchise will reportedly meet with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks and three other teams in the upcoming days in Los Angeles before he can sign a contract July 1. Hes earned every right to make whatever choice he has,Ž Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said. He has a right to do that. The important thing is that hes an Islander at the end.Ž Thats far from certain after the Islanders were unable to agree to terms with the 27-year-old point-a-game center before he could open the dialogue with other teams. Just being able to woo Tavares is a tantalizing possibility, even if GMs arent willing to say his name while hes still property of New York. I think players do identify our team, our organization, as a place that they want to explore, which is a good thing,Ž Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. Its a good thing that I think players look at our place as a place they want to consider to play, which as a GM makes your life a little bit easier.Ž Tavares is the biggest fish in free agency, especially considering the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals were closing in on a deal to re-sign defenseman John Carlson. Amid the fast-andfurious selecting in Rounds 2 through 7, Carolina acquired defenseman Dougie Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox from Calgary for center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin. After missing the playoffs the past nine seasons, the Hurricanes arent done dealing. Well stay busy,Ž Hurricanes GM Don Waddell said. I cant say for sure anything will get done. Im pretty confident something will get done, whether its in the next few days or next 10 days.ŽNHL: DraftTavares future, Flames-Hurricanes trade spice up NHL draftBy PAT EATON-ROBBAssociated PressCROMWELL, Conn. „ Paul Casey has come close each of the three previous times he has played in Connecticut. He has a great chance to break through Sunday in the Travelers Championship. Casey shot an 8-under 62 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round. Casey, whose win at Valspar in Florida in March was his first PGA Tour title in nine years, called the bogey-free round at TPC River Highlands his best of the year. The Englishman had six birdies and an eagle „ at the signature par-4 15th hole „ where he hit his tee shot onto the green and then sank a 23-foot putt. He broke out of the pack hitting all 18 greens and has a streak of 23 straight heading into Sunday. He was at 16-under 194. It was clinical,Ž he said. I did everything I wanted to do. I cant do any more than that.Ž Casey was second here during his first visit in 2015, came in 17th a year later and had a fifthplace finish in Cromwell a year ago. I love this golf course,Ž he said. Russell Henley was 12 under after a 67,and J.B. Holmes (65), Anirban Lahiri (65) and third-round leader Brain Harman (69) were 11 under. I think I can shoot a low number on this course,Ž Henley said. Youve got to make the putts. Im definitely hitting it well enough, and if I can get a couple putts to fall, that would be good. But I cant control what (Casey) is doing. I can just try to keep playing solid.Ž Jason Day shot 66, and Bubba Watson 67, leaving them 10 under. Watson came from six back to the 2010 event and beat Casey in a playoff in 2015. Watson would join Billy Casper as the only players to win this tournament more than twice. Casper won his fourth Connecticut title in 1973. Im hoping the weather is real sunny when Im teeing off and as soon as I putt out it gets windy and a little be of rain and gives me a better shot at it,Ž he said. Morning rain and drizzle throughout the day kept the greens soft, but nobody was able to stay with Casey. The shot of the day came from James Hahn, who aced the 154-yard 11th hole. Hahns tee shot went over the greenside bunker on the right front of the hole, struck the bottom of the flag pole and went into the hole, which required some repair work to the front lip after taking the hit.GOLF: Travelers ChampionshipPaul Casey shoots 62 to take 4-shot lead in TravelersAP PHOTOLarge galleries form around the course as players like Jordan Spieth walks onto the first green during the third round of the T ravelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., Saturday. an Uber so he could go home on his own. Theres two different Uber rides is what were talking about.Ž This would explain the discrepancy between the drivers account of Winston as her only passenger, and Winston and Darby testifying that there were three passengers. Winston did not make any reference to a second ride in defending himself when the allegations first came out in November, nor did Darby in his statement supporting Winston. Why would Winston, who had faced public allegations of sexual assault while in college at Florida State, be hanging out with another football player who was facing rape charges at the time in 2016? Scruggs said Banks had been friends with Darby since they played at rival high schools in Maryland; he said he would only characterize Winston as an acquaintanceŽ of Banks. Winston and Darby have their own history together, as Darby and FSU teammate Chris Casher both witnessed the sexual encounter that led to Erica Kinsman of Zephyrhills accusing Winston of rape in 2012. He was not charged criminally, but settled out of court in 2016 with Kinsman, who also settled with FSU, getting $950,000 in a Title IX lawsuit against the university. Messages left with Winstons attorney were not returned Friday night. Neither Bucs general manager Jason Licht nor head coach Dirk Koetter had any response to text messages seeking comment. Banks was found guilty for his role in the gang rape of a female Vanderbilt student in 2013. He is appealing to have a new trial, and Scruggs said he was allowed to be in Arizona in 2016 while the charges were still pending. Scruggs said the NFL reached out to Banks in prison as part of its investigation into Winston, but he said he wouldnt speak without his attorney present, and Scruggs said the league never reached out to him. It appeared that Mr. Winston was trying to deflect responsibility for this,Ž Scruggs said. There were two different rides.Ž As a result of Winstons suspension, the Bucs will be without their franchise quarterback for their first three games, all against defending division champs from last season. They open at New Orleans, then face defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia and Pittsburgh at home, with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to fill in at quarterback. After a disappointing 5-11 season last year, the Bucs enter the year with Koetter and Lichts future in jeopardy if the team doesnt show significant improvement. Before the new details came out Friday night, Winston had gotten support on social media from one of his teammates, Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander, who came into the league with him in 2015 and himself dealt with a four-game suspension as a rookie for violating the leagues policy on performance-enhancing drugs. We gotcha back @ Jaboowins Im riding with ya foreva! Family!!Ž Alexander tweeted. The Glazer family, which owns the Bucs, has been unwavering in its support for Winston throughout the investigation. As recently as May, co-chair Joel Glazer had been confident the NFL would clear Winston. I can only speak to the person that I know, the person I have known,Ž Glazer said from the NFL owners meetings. And the person everyone I know knows. Thats what Ill speak to, and thats a first-class individual, hard-working, wonderful in the community, a leader and everything that we wouldve hoped for in our quarterback.ŽBUCSFrom Page 1 Hes not the biggest guy on the ice, but hes not scared to go in the corner against the 6-foot-4 guys,Ž Fortier said. He works hard every shift. This year, Montreal had a rough year, but everyone was talking about him and how he was working every night. I think its a good comparison with me.Ž The Lightning didnt have a first-round pick because they traded it to the Rangers as part of the February trade for defenseman Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller. THIRD ROUND: The Lightning shifted to defense in the third round, selecting Dmitry Semykin, a 6-foot-3, 191-pound prospect from Stupino in Russias Minor Hockey League. Semykin, 18, showed some scoring potential with Stupino last season, with eight goals and seven assists in 41 games. He also had 118 penalty minutes, nearly twice as much as his closest teammate.LIGHTNINGFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, June 24, 2018 / The SunBy RONALD BLUMAssociated PressMOSCOW „ American soccer fans: Icelands prime minister wants your support. The United States is absent from the World Cup for the first time since 1986, which means up to 325 million Americans are temporarily free agents. Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir says her island nation about 900 miles (1,450 kilometers) off Norways coast is the perfect pick for their passion. Iceland is the least-populous country ever at soccers showcase with just 350,000. We can do with more supporters. We absolutely need them,Ž she said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. Weve got a lot of support from people around the world. I think a lot of people like the way the Icelandic team played. I think the team spirit really was something that people liked.Ž Costa Rica, Egypt, Morocco, Peru and Saudi Arabia already are out, and Argentina is on the verge of elimination, but alluring alternatives remain for those still unsure how to release their pent-up fervor with no U.S. redwhite-and-blue to root for. About 200,000 tickets were bought by American residents for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, second behind only the host nation and up from approximately 130,000 four years earlier in South Africa. The U.S. remains second this year, but the total is down to approximately 87,000, FIFA said. That means more soccer supporters back home. Reyka Vodka set up viewing parties in a dozen or so states to recruit fans for Strakarnir Okkar,Ž the nickname of Icelands Our Boys.Ž Viet Lam, a 35-year-old emergency room pharmacist from Seattle, was at The George & Dragon Pub to watch Icelands 2-0 loss Friday to Nigeria, which started at 8 a.m. PDT. He first visited Iceland in 2013 and has gone back two more times. Say Goodbye to Erectile DysfunctionPaid Advertisement The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood ow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and c reams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatmentŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.Ž The physicians and professional medical sta at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood ow cannot enter into the penis,thus creating ED.Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, rmer and more sustainable erections. NO SURGERY(239) 887-3602Southwest Florida Medical Group www.SWFLMedicalGroup.comIndividual results may vary. All rights reserved.adno=50537836By DEREK GATOPOULOSAssociated PressROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia „ The criticism of Mexicos national team heading into the World Cup was loud and scathing. The answer has been emphatic. The Mexicans won their second straight match at the tournament, beating South Korea 2-1 Saturday to move ever closer to a spot in the round of 16. We didnt listen to the criticism,Ž said Javier Hernandez, one of the scorers against South Korea. It was just noise.Ž Mexico opened its World Cup by upsetting defending champion Germany 1-0. A second victory on Saturday gives it six points and a chance to win Group F on Wednesday when the team faces Sweden. We want the Mexican people to enjoy this. We are going to enjoy it,Ž Hernandez said. But as of tomorrow we will be working hard thinking about Sweden and regardless of the results of the matches against Germany and South Korea, we are going to go out there to get the three points.Ž Hernandez and Carlos Vela scored a goal each at Rostov Arena. Vela converted from the penalty spot in the 26th minute after Jang Hyunsoo handled the ball while trying to stop a cross from Andres Guardado. Hernandez added the second in the 66th, scoring his 50th goal for Mexico. He hit the ball low past goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo after collecting a pass from Hirving Lozano.WORLD CUP: MEXICO 1, SOUTH KOREA 1Mexicos victory over South Korea silences criticsBy TIM BOOTHAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia „ The desperate world champions from Germany were seconds from losing control of their World Cup fate when Toni Kroos whispered to Marco Reus just outside Swedens penalty area. With the score tied in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Kroos seemed to remind Reus of a tricky set play from training that will live in World Cup lore. Down to 10 men after Jerome Boateng was given a second yellow card, Germany rallied for a 2-1 victory over Sweden on Saturday to suddenly revive its title defense thanks to a strike from Kroos that caught the Swedes by surprise and wont soon be forgotten in Germany. The fact Toni Kroos put it away is just incredible,Ž Reus said. Hes shown that talent on previous occasions but really in this case it was practically the very last opportunity to win this match.Ž Kroos lined up for a free kick as if he was going for goal but just tapped the ball to Reus, who held it with his toe as the defenders paused. Kroos swung his right foot, curling the ball past a spinning Sebastian Larsson and over the outstretched hand of diving goalkeeper Robin Olsen. The Swedes watched the ball go in, mouths open in disbelief. The Germans ran to Kroos and erupted in emotional relief. Happy of course. It was a tough game again today for us,Ž Kroos said. We suffered. ... If you dont score an early goal and we have the chances then its going to be difficult until the end. It was, but now of course were happy because I think we also deserved the victory.ŽWORLD CUP: GERMANY 2, SWEDEN 1Kroos scores late to give Germany win over Sweden By GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressELKHART LAKE, Wis. „ Robert Wickens emerged from his trailer after a meeting with engineers, taking a brief break after practice at Road America. Finally, the IndyCar rookie has to get ready for a race at the rural Wisconsin road course. Wickens is off to an impressive start this weekend at Road America, a year after taking his first IndyCar spin around the 4-mile track as a substitute driver for Mikhail Aleshin for one day of practice. Now the Canadian, a former DTM star, has the full-time IndyCar ride. Hell stay in the drivers seat of the No. 6 car for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports for the 222-mile Kohler Grand Prix on Sunday. When I drove the free practice here last year ... this was just kind of a (check off) a bucket-list item, driving IndyCar on one of the best tracks in America,Ž Wickens said Saturday. A year later, Im a full-time IndyCar driver,Ž he added. This is a new car, its a new season and so far its going well.Ž Wickens will start fifth on Sunday, building on top-five finishes in all three practice rounds at Road America this weekend. It helps that Wickens feels comfortable on road courses. He put up impressive times this weekend at Road America despite not actually racing at the course since 2007. Im at home a road course. I can jump into this IndyCar and Im confident right away I can be quick,Ž he said as crew members worked on the car in the garage after practice. Still, a year ago, he held back while subbing for Aleshin. The Russian driver had brief troubles returning to the United States after the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Because if you put it all on the line and you crash,Ž Wickens said, you look like that idiot who crashed when you were just reserving for someone else.Ž Back then, Wickens said he was happy driving in Europe in DTM with MercedesAMG Motorsport. But he made the move to IndyCar this year after Mercedes said it was pulling out of the series. Wickens grew up with fellow Schmidt driver James Hinchcliffe, who recommended Wickens in the first place to fill in last year for Aleshin. Wickens and Hinchcliffe were karting teammates as teens in Canada. Hinchcliffe said he tried to sit backŽ and let team members come to their own conclusions about Wickens.IndyCar rookie Robert Wickens returns to Road AmericaAP PHOTOIn this May 21, 2018 file photo Robert Wickens, of Canada, waits in the pits before a practice session for the IndyCar Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in Indianapolis.

SOCCER: World CupFree-agent fansIceland, Mexico, England compete for World Cup support from AmericansBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressSONOMA, Calif. „ William Byron recently got instruction on the finer points of road racing from two coaches. He also used a simulator, did countless hours of study and drove Saturday in the K&N Pro Series race to prepare for his first NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway. I feel like Ive made some good progress on the road courses this year,Ž Byron said after finishing third in the K&N race. The 20-year-old rookie still realizes that nothing substitutes for experience on the winding turns and changing elevation of this unique track. Even then, its awfully difficult for any oval-centric driver to sustain any career success in a race that hasnt had a repeat winner since 2000. Byron is a quick study, though: He qualified in eighth in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet on Saturday, putting himself in position to be a player Sunday in a race that nearly anybody can win. (On Friday) I really started getting my rhythm of what I needed to do better,Ž Byron said. I kind of put that all together (Saturday) to try to get where we need to be. It was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. It was cool.Ž Sonoma is a highly enjoyable stop on the Cup circuit for most of the drivers, but its even more fun for their families and sponsors, who flock to Northern California for a pleasant weekend. The areas gracious vibe contrasts sharply with the difficult racing for drivers on a circuit with only three non-oval courses on its schedule. These are the types of events where, honestly, nobody cares about the race except us,Ž Kevin Harvick said. Everybody has a hell of a time when they come to Sonoma, because they can bring their wife, bring their friends, and the sponsors all come and we have big events. It could be the best race youve ever seen at Sonoma or the worst race, but everybody is going to have a great time.Ž Byron isnt the only driver doing extra preparation for those sharp turns, though. Aric Almirola has struggled mightily on road courses throughout his career, and he never finished better than 14th in six career starts at Sonoma. He has rededicated himself to learning the skill for Stewart-Haas Racing.AUTO RACING: NASCARDrivers embrace Sonoma challenge

Sunday, June 24, 2018 Page 1 Congratulations! Youve found Englewood, Florida. Give yourself a pat on the back. Not everyone “nds us. Maybe its because we dont have an interstate highway running through town or a busy commercial airport terminal. Those things are within reach, but theres a respectful distance. Were a bit off the beaten path, but weve been right here all along, on Floridas beautiful Sun Coast. If youve been here any length of time, you may have noticed some of our assets. We dont like to brag, but calling us a waterfront communityŽ is a bit of an understatement. We have miles of beautiful beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoy unequaled “shing and boating opportunities in the gulf and Lemon Bay, in world-famous Boca Grande Pass, and our many creeks and reefs. That goes for kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding, too. Our Old-Florida charm is on full display in Olde Englewood Village, centered on the West Dearborn Street shopping district, with its artists galleries, unique gift shops, cafs and night spots. Weve nearly lost count of the number of weekly farmers markets that pop up during the season. (Last time we checked, it was “ve each week.) Lets see, what else ƒ Theres the year-round golf on any our wonderful and challenging courses. We have some of the “nest restaurants anywhere. Take your pick. We have one of the best high schools youve ever seen. Our health care is second to none. We must admit, we may be lacking in a few areas. We dont have a lot of big-box stores or cookie-cutter restaurant chains. We dont seem to have a lot of traf“c jams. Thats not to say we cant draw a crowd. Folks travel from all over the world each November for the Offshore Powerboat Associations World Championships, held right here at Englewood Beach. And thousands line up to watch our Pioneer Days Parade every Labor Day. But you may “nd were more suited to the smaller groups that gather to watch the sunsets or listen to the drum circles at the beach. Or take a quiet birding walk through one of our parks or preserves. If youre just here for a few days, take some time and look around. If youre here to stay, then youll have plenty of time to explore it all. After all, you found us, right?You found us. Welcome.

Sunday, June 24, 2018 Page 3 The Englewood Area Board of Realtors has a long tradition of serving the community through fundraising, volunteering and encouraging members to become engaged. Members of the Englewood Area Board of Realtors, and its Young Professionals Network, can often be found assisting on a home-building project by Habitat for Humanity, or throwing a spontaneous Ice Cream Sundae party for the kids at the Englewood Boys & Girls Club on a weekday afternoon. Their members volunteer their time to help people “gure out their electronic devices at Tech Talk sessions, raise money for Kids Needs of Englewood, counsel Lemon Bay High School Students, and always “eld an enthusiastic team for the Great American Cleanup. EABOR members dont always wear their T-shirts when theyre helping out.
