Theres an irony to it. In a statewide effort to protect people from addiction, local doctors fear new legislation may hurt their patients. Starting today, patients can only receive a three-day supply of Schedule II opiates for their acute pain. This includes, but isnt limited to hydromorphone, methadone, meperidine, oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, opium, codeine and hydrocodone. A physician can extend the prescription to seven days when deemed medically necessary. The prescription limit is implemented by House Bill 21, which passed unanimously through the state Legislature. Area lawmakers supported the bill including Rep. Mike Grant (R-Port Charlotte). This is to limit the number of individuals who inadvertently got addicted to drugs as a result of a surgical procedure,Ž said Grant. Getting addicted was never their intention to begin with.Ž The main purpose of the bill was to combat the opioid epidemic. The crisis was declared a national and state public health emergency in 2017. In 2016, 5,725 opioid-related deaths were reported in Florida alone, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. A large percentage of those addicted to heroin or fentanyl began with a legal opioid prescription for a minor medical procedure, said David Thompson, the Charlotte Behavioral Health Cares substance abuse program manager. Patients reported to Thompson it took a very short time to become addicted this way: When their prescriptions ran out they began to resort to friends and other sources to obtain similar drugs to keep from feeling sick or just to function.Ž Some physicians, however, arent so pleased with the bill as it limits their ability to help their patients from being in pain. The provision that limited the prescribing abilities of physicians was excessive. I think it was counterproductive,Ž said Rep. Julio Gonzalez (R-Venice), who voted in favor of the bill. Gonzalez is also an orthopedic surgeon in Venice. In the end, I voted for the bill because I thought there were too many things in the bill that were very good and very positive that we may not be able to get again,Ž Gonzalez said.Knee-jerk reactionDr. John Mason, a family physician at the Sarasota Medical Center, said he has seen patients get addicted. Normally we do something about it,Ž Mason said. Anybody whos been in real pain, imagine that all the time.Ž The legislators have made it more difficult for physicians to take care of their patients and could cause people to be in agony, Mason said. Its absurd,Ž Mason said. Its a state-imposed torture.Ž Dr. Joseph Ravid, a primary care physician affiliated with Bayfront Health Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda hospitals, said he feels the law was a knee-jerk reaction carried out by non-physicians.Ž Ravid, an associate professor at the University of South Florida School of Public Health, explained the new rules come from legislatures that dont really understand the scope and depth of this particular problem.Ž The bill, according to Ravid, takes away a modality of treatments from those who need it. He said it paints everyone with the same brush, and is horrific and heartbreaking. They need to let the doctors do our job. Who are they really punishing? The patient,Ž Ravid said. This limit doesnt apply to patients with cancer, a terminal condition, pain related to palliative care or with a traumatic injury with a severity score (ISS) of nine or higher. Though the bill was implemented to mainly combat drug abuse and addiction, Ravid says the bill will mostly affect grandma.Ž Opioid prescription limit upsets some doctors‘State-imposed torture’By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITER OPIOIDS: BY THE NUMBERS20: Charlotte County deaths 6,500: Floridians who lost their lives 57: Percentage of states drug-related deaths attributed to opiods.

INSIDE The day David Tankersley died, his family wanted to save another life. At just 34 years old, Tankersley didnt wake up to his alarm for work on the morning of June 27. Shocked and grieving from his unexpected passing, Tankersleys family called area hospitals to ask about donating his organs. All the hospitals were saying he is not eligible to donate because he died in the home,Ž said Tankersleys uncle, Ken Jones. It was a double hit. The family lost their loved one, and wouldnt be able to save another. My cousin needs a kidney,Ž Jones said hours after discovering his nephew had died. Theyre probably going to be a match,Ž he said. This is the stupidest policy.ŽOrgan donation criteria disappoints familyBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERASSISTANT EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDED BY DAVID TANKERSLEYCharlotte County resident David Tankersley, 34, suered a stroke April 14 and after undergoing a thrombectomy at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, he expected to fully recover.

Zannone and James Barton had spent hours at the beach Sunday before the storm moved in. Now they were hustling back to Bartons car, but neither minded the refreshing dousing. I remember him looking into my eyes and saying, This is so great, I love the rain,Ž Zannone recalled. I said, I love the rain, too. We were de“nitely hurrying up to get back, but he was very happy.Ž The rain began to fall harder as Barton walked a half step ahead of her. Suddenly, Zannone felt a shock and saw a ”ash of light. She was thrown backward. Her body buzzing and paralyzed, Zannone looked up from the ground in time to see Barton standing still, frozen like a mannequin. Then the 33-year-old Seffner plumbing contractor toppled over, face “rst, onto the sand. I thought I was dying,Ž Zannone said, sobbing as she recalled the moment, but I thought, I have to help him.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSNo one ever wants to be without something they may need to save their life. Unfortunately, many are “nding themselves in this position because of an ongoing shortage of EpiPen auto-injector products in recent weeks. The EpiPen autoinjector is widely used in the emergency treatment of allergic reactions from everything from bee stings to peanuts. The pen dispenses epinephrine which can stop the deadly symptoms of severe allergic reactions. According to Mylan, the company that manufactures EpiPen, the shortage is caused by intermittent supply constraintsŽ. This issue was con“rmed May 9 by a supply noti“cation from the FDA. Limited supplies of EpiPens have been reported around the country since this time, leaving many with allergies unable to obtain a medicine that may be needed to save their lives in an emergency. Supplies of EpiPen products vary across different pharmacies and wholesalers. Walgreens described supply constraints in Charlotte County as a ”uid situationŽ adding that they are taking additional measures to help meet current patient demand.Ž If a particular store is out of stock other locations or pharmacies may still be able to “ll EpiPen prescriptions. A pharmacist at one Charlotte County CVS, said the store had no issues “lling recent EpiPen orders. Mylan encourages patients in need of assistance in locating alternative pharmacies to contact the Mylan customer relations department at: 800796-9526. Walgreens customers can contact their local stores before attempting to “ll prescriptions to verify EpiPen availability.Fluid situation locally in EpiPen shortageBy Rory LaneSUN INTERN AP FILE PHOTOA pharmacist holds a package of EpiPen epinephrine auto-injector, a Mylan product, in 2016.

Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comBody found in Myakka River identifiedBy LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITER MANASOTA BEACH „ Its been miserable on Manasota Key for a few weeks now. When the wind blows, the strong stench of dead “sh “lls the air. The usual sights of bikes riding in the road or walkers traveling to Englewood Beach were scarce Saturday morning and afternoon. The usual crowd of outdoor restaurant-goers werent enjoying dining near Englewood Beach. And the true sign that red tide is still along the shoreline is that there were plenty of parking spots on Englewood Beach. This is the worst its been in the 33 years Ive been coming on vacation here from Polk County,Ž said visitor Terry Phillips as he was launching his boat on the dock at Westons wannaB inn on Manasota Key. We usually “sh in Englewood. We live for this, but theres just no way to do it today here. Its too hard to breathe with the dead “sh smell. We are going to try Pine Island.Ž Red tide „ Karenia brevis „ is a naturally occurring organism. Researchers deem natural, background counts of red tide as levels of 1,000 cells or fewer per liter of water. In higher concentrations, the algae can cause respiratory irritations and other ailments, as well as triggering “sh kills. For lifelong Englewood residents Dan and Nikki Kiehl, the red tide outbreak is impacting their young children and their summer activities. Its very hard to breathe,Ž Nikki said. Our 2-year-old daughter has had to have a nebulizer and two different types of medicine for the last month.Ž The children played on a Slip N Slide in front of their home on Manasota Key Saturday. This is the “rst day weve been able to enjoy being outside for a little while,Ž she said. Weve spent a lot of time stuck in the house this month. Weve been studying whats going on with red tide because it has hit so early this year. I think Hurricane Irma (on Sept. 10) may have stirred up sediment, then the fertilizer and pesticides may have all hit the water.Ž The couple also believes water released from Lake Okeechobees algae blooms are polluting local waterways. Its toxic water in Lake Okeechobee and its come our way,Ž Dan said. Its got to be killing business here and on Boca Grande. The restaurants arent as busy as they usually are leading up to the Fourth of July. Im not sure how much fun its going to be for people trying to watch “reworks near the beach thats “lled with dead “sh. Its affecting birds, sea turtles, a ton of snook, lots of snook, Goliath grouper, sea turtles and even some dolphin. You know when it affects “sh that large something is really wrong. I think people should pay attention to people who are running for of“ce like Adam Putnam (for governor),Ž he said. Some of these candidates are taking money from the sugar cane folks. It impacts our waterways. Theres about 1 million people who are impacted by red tide. We want the politicians to do something about it. Too many candidates are taking big money from lobbyists and our environment is suffering. Ive been paying attention to whats being written on the Everglades Trust Facebook page and Bullsugar.org because they are paying attention to the toxins coming from Lake Okeechobee.Ž From January to June 22, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission con“rmed seven manatee deaths caused by red tide and another 51 where red tide was suspected as the cause of death. We need clean water,Ž Dan said. Im going to spend July 4 here with dead “sh and “reworks.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 FROM PAGE ONEThe limit will affect the patient whos been on a narcotic for so many years,Ž Ravid said. The physician created a dependent patient on a narcotic. (It is) going to be detrimental to her overall wellbeing.Ž Some Charlotte patients are already trying to wean off existing opioid dependencies. People that have been on these opiates for long periods of time cannot just stop abruptly without experiencing significant withdrawal symptoms,Ž said Dr. Dan Smith, an anesthesiologist running Liberate Physician Centers in Port Charlotte, which assists qualifying patients in obtaining medical marijuana. When patients go through withdrawal, feel like they have the worst flu possible,Ž said Dr. Eugene Pereira, director of pain management centers in Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Systems. Though the process isnt life-threatening, patients have no motivation to get out of bed, their bones ache and they feel completely lethargic. Patients will also experience diarrhea and vomiting. Ravid said patients will feel like they have ants crawling under their skin. He said its 24 to 48 hours of pure hell.Ž Along with helping patients through withdrawal, Smith says medical marijuana patients report having a better mood, sleeping better, being less anxious, and the typical elderly patient feel more like their old self.Ž The FDA has not shown the responsibility and the leadership to have (CBD and some canabanoid derivatives) studied,Ž Gonzalez said. I think that is one of the most important priorities the FDA needs to do in combating this narcotics crisis.Ž However, medicinal marijuana doesnt work for everyone. Though Smiths patients average an age of 60, Smith says there is still a social stigma that restricts some patients from pursuing relief with the medicine. ImplementationPhysicians anticipate that the initial implementation of HB 21 will be hectic,Ž Gonzalez said. Technically, patients can come back to see their doctors every three days for a new prescription, leading to more patients filling waiting rooms and doctors schedules. Gonzalez fears patients will flood the emergency rooms to manage their pain, when they otherwise wouldnt have needed to. But for those who will suffer in pain, Pereira thinks the definition of suffering altogether has to change. When undergoing surgery, the patient needs to be told they will have pain: We have to be realistic.Ž Pereira thinks preventative care needs to be taken more seriously, so that patients will have to go through these elective surgeries, such as hip and knee replacements, less often. HB 21 also requires all physicians with a Florida Medical License and a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) license who are authorized to prescribe controlled substances, to complete a two-hour course before Jan. 31, 2019. All of a sudden I need to take a course to dispense a medication that Im already dispensing,Ž Ravid said. According to Ravid, the Florida Medical Association (FMA) was fighting HB 21 tooth and nailŽ but all of a sudden they decided to agree with the legislators.Ž An online version of the course offered on the FMA website requires FMA members to pay $25 and non-members pay $75. They sold us,Ž Ravid said. Physician and Avon Park Republican Rep. Cary Pigman has told floridapolitics.com that the support is tied to medical associations offering the course, which will bring in revenue of at least $4 million over two years. But FMA General Counsel Jeff Scott rejected that assessment, calling Pigmans assertions absurd.Ž HB 21 also requires doctors to consult the state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) before supplying an opioid. With so much information and publicity in the mainstream, loved ones of addicts often wonder what caused someone to form such a dangerous addiction. Opiates dont take your pain from you. They remove you from the pain,Ž Pereira said. This is what has pulled in so many people and gripped a third of Americans to abuse prescription pain relievers, according to the Center for Disease Control and Preventions 2017 Drug Surveillance report. Patients feel a sense of detachment. (Opiates) take them away from that reality,Ž Pereira said. If youre unhappy, then that can be used as an escape.Ž Before the PDMP was implemented in 2009, nationwide pain pill prescriptions were running rampant. Even in 2017, oxycodone and hydrocodone still made up a quarter of all prescriptions in Florida, according to the PDMPs 2017 Annual Report. The problem was so big,Ž Gonzalez said. It was important the Legislature do something about this incredibly life-threatening problem,Ž he said.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comTORTUREFROM PAGE 1 WHAT IS ACUTE PAIN?Acute pain means the normal, predicted, physiological, and time-limited response to an adverse chemical, thermal, or mechanical stimulus associated with surgery, trauma, or acute illness. This is affected by a laws new opioid prescription restrictions. However, acute pain is not related to: € Cancer. € A terminal condition, progressive disease or medical or surgical condition that causes significant functional impairment. This is not considered by a treating physician to be reversible without the administration of life-sustaining procedures, and will result in death within oneyear after diagnosis if the condition runs its normal course. € Palliative care to provide relief of symptoms related to an incurable, progressive illness or injury. € A traumatic injury with an Injury Severity Score (ISS) of nine or greater. An ISS is a scoring system used in trauma centers to assess the severity of multiple injuries. The score can range between 0 and 75. € Chronic non-malignant pain unrelated to cancer that persists beyond the usual course of disease, or an injury that is the cause of the pain, or more than 90 days after surgery. Once the pain is not considered acute, there are no restrictions for opioid prescriptions. Source: HB 21 OTHER STATESNot many states have limited opioid prescriptions. A bill similar to Floridas passed by Kentuckys state legislature, House Bill 333, hasnt seen any significant effects yet after becoming law in November 2017. Mike Rodman, the executive director of Kentucky Board of Licensure, said its too early to tell. Van Ingram, executive director of the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, says the legislation will certainly decrease availability of opiates altogether. In May2017, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton signed SF 2a into law. This limits opioid prescriptions to four days for acute dental or refractive eye surgery pain. Minnesota also finalized guidelines for prescribing opiates in May of thisyear. The guidelines recommended that doctors prescribe the lowest effective dose when used to treat acute pain. Doctors are also recommended to keep close tabs on patients after these prescriptions and avoid prescribing opioids altogether for chronic pain patients, Minnesota Public Radio News reports. However, doctors are not required to follow these guidelines, the Minnesota Medical Association said. PrescriptionCompiled by Sun staff writer Liz Hardaway FUNDING BREAKDOWNThe new law adds more than $53.6 million in funding, which with additional money promised in the budget, totals about $65 million dedicated to fighting the opioid epidemic. The money includes: € More than $27 million in federal funding from the Opioid State Targeted Response Grant appropriated to the Florida Department of Children and Families. This grant was the secondyear of money promised under the 21st Century Cures Act through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant program. € More than $14.6 millionyearly for enhancements to the substance abuse system of care given to the Florida Department of Children and Families for community-based services, including additional residential treatment beds, outpatient treatment and case management, emergency room treatment and follow-up, peer recovery support services and targeted outreach for pregnant women with substance abuse disorders. € $5 millionyearly to the Florida Department of Health to provide naloxone for first responders. € $6 millionyearly to the Office of State Court Administrator for medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction. € More than $990,000 to enhance the Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring System. The system will receive $873,000 ayear in subsequentyears.Source: Tribune News Service STATE LAWS TAKING EFFECT TODAYGov. Rick Scott signed 234 including HB 21 and vetoed 11 of the 245 bills passed by the Florida Legislature in its regular and special sessions thisyear. Here is a sampling: Everglades reservoir SB 10 allows for the creation of a massive reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee. Its to be built on 31,000 acres of state-owned land at a cost of $1.5 billion. Proponents, including Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, believe the reservoir will serve the dual purpose of sending more water south into the Everglades while preventing further pollution of the St. Lucie River, near Stuart, and the Caloosahatchee River, near Fort Myers. Religious expression in public schools Public schools are required to allow children to pray and to treat coursework that includes religious elements the same as the school would consider secular work. SB 436 also allows school personnel to join in with student-led prayer. Another new law, HB 989, allows any county resident „ not just a parent of a child at a school „ to object to textbooks and other class materials used in a school. Drones and robots Florida becomes the fourth state to regulate commercial deliveries by drones and land-based personal delivery devices,Ž such as robots. HB 1027 essentially adds personal delivery devices to the list of vehicles allowed to operate on sidewalks, such as bicycles. It also adds commercial delivery to the allowed uses for drones. This opens the door for major delivery companies such as Amazon to begin delivering goods to peoples doors using unmanned drones and robots. Boating Boaters have to follow new rules about where they can anchor or moor their boats. HB 7043 sets specific distances boats can anchor near marinas, yacht facilities and public moorings. Some marina owners have long complained about vessels anchored too closely to marinas. The law also gives local governments the right to regulate live-aboard vessels, which some residents have said are cluttering some waterways. A separate bill, HB 711, lowers vessel registration fees for boats that have emergency location devices. That bill comes after two 14-year-old boys, Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, disappeared at sea off the coast of Jupiter Inlet twoyears ago. Education HB 7069 offers 274 pages and $419 million worth of new school programs and funding. It mandates 20 minutes of daily recess for grades five and under and requires students be allowed to have sunscreen on school campuses. The law requires school districts to give charter schools some of the money they take in from property taxes and features a $140 million fund to entice charter schools to open near failing traditional public schools. Criminal history records Floridians wont have to pay to have an arrest mugshot removed from a publication or website. Websites that run mugshots and then charge a fee to remove them have been especially problematic in Florida. The states broad public records law has allowed sites to post millions of mugshots online, then charge to have them removed. SB 118 also creates a public record exemption for all arrest records in which the person arrested is subsequently found not guilty or the charges dismissed.Source: Sun-Sentinel GRAPHIC FROM PDMPPrescribing rates for opioids in Florida per 1,000 people in 2017 from the Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substances Evaluation.

Ron Beck, 38, a detective for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office narcotics unit, said when he started his position fiveyears ago, it was really easy to buy prescription drugs off the streets. Over 1,000 arrests have been made since 2010 by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office for oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine and methadone alone. Usually dealers get these drugs through their own family members, or the dealer will solicit three or four elderly people and pay them off for a full prescription, Beck said. With this new limit being imposed, drug dealers have personally told Beck its going to be harder to find these pills. I think its going to totally change up the game,Ž Beck said. Due to the increasingly limited number of legitimate prescription drugs available to the public, Beck said, some drug dealers have gotten their hands on pill presses. These allow drug dealers try to create seemingly identical oxycodone pills to sell to customers, with the same inscription and shape. However, Beck said, dealers can lace dangerous opiates such as fentanyl into these pills. Compiled by Sun staff writer Liz Hardaway

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSThe Palm Beach Post is out with a devastating series of stories about Floridas role in Americas heroin crisis, citing little-seen data and interviews with of“cials from around the country. And few people look worse in it than Florida legislators „ including Marco Rubio „ for waiting a decade to crack down on dirty doctors and pill mills. Post investigative reporter Pat Beall writes that their failure to act fed the nations appetite for pills, making the nations heroin crisis that much worse when Florida “nally cracked down, in 2011. The stories are “lled with nuggets about the history of Floridas opioid crisis and how it was viewed by of“cials in other states. The series can be found at the heroin.palmbeachpost.com web site, but here are three highlights: 1. Marco Rubio killed a critical prescription drug monitoring program over politics.Ž Florida had the chance to implement a program that would track overprescribing by doctors „ considered a silver bulletŽ against pill mills „ but one person blocked it in 2002, early in the opioid crisis, according to the Post: And there was one person who was responsible,Ž said former state Sen. Burt, now an Ormond Beach insurance executive. And it was Marco Rubio.Ž A rising state lawmaker in 2002, now-U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio had the clout to make or break the legislation. He had been one of two state House majority whips and was on the fast track to becoming House speaker. Rubio didnt kill the 2002 bill out of opposition to prescription monitoring. It was politics. That year, Rubio favored a bill changing the Miami-Dade County charter, which failed to pass because of a single noŽ vote in the Senate. Burt cast the vote. Angered by what he saw as Burts betrayal, Rubio killed the prescription drug monitoring bill. When I found out he broke his word, it made the choice easy,Ž Rubio told The Miami Herald. Its not clear whether the bill would have passed the Legislature anyway, and Rubio was hardly the only one who stood against it „ lawmakers didnt roll out the program until 2011. From 2002 to 2011, 35,000 Floridians would die after taking prescription opioids, the Post writes. 2. Kentucky went berserk when Rick Scott considered stopping the drug monitoring database in 2011. Gov. Rick Scott considered stopping the databases rollout in 2011, and of“cials in Kentucky nearly lost it. As much as 60 percent of the illicit oxycodone in Kentucky state ”owed from Florida, the Post writes, and Kentucky Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo proposed erecting billboards at the Florida line: Welcome to the Oxy Tourism Capital of the World.Ž Federal lawmakers tried to intervene: U.S. House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, also from Kentucky, twice wrote Scott. Canceling Floridas prescription drug monitoring program is equal to “ring “re“ghters while your house is ablaze,Ž he wrote. And a small-county Kentucky sheriff was convinced Scott was on the take, and was warned to be quiet about it: In Greenup County, an infuriated Keith Cooper told a reporter, In my opinion, (Scotts) getting money from somewhere. He has to be.Ž A few days later, recalled Cooper, A lieutenant with the state police Id been talking to down there called me, said, Man, just a heads up: I wouldnt come to Florida.Ž The database was saved by Attorney General Pam Bondi, who convinced Scott to leave it alone. 3. Floridas drug database curbed overprescribing … and led to heroin deaths across the country. Much has been made about the arrests of pill mill doctors, but the Posts reporting suggests that the prescription drug monitoring program was the real reason that prescription opioids became hard to come by. When we look back at when the line (of heroin admissions) started going up, the prescription monitoring database is the inciting event,Ž Dr. Hansel Tookes, a former ER doctor-turned-professor at the University of Miami, told the Post. And Floridas crackdown was felt across the nation: Little-noticed DEA reports and federal court records show that by 2010, South Florida was a reliable oxycodone supplier to users and traf“ckers not only across the Southeast, but also in the New England, Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes regions, an area encompassing half the United States. And when Florida “nally began shutting down its pill mill pipeline, users and addicts there did exactly what users and addicts did in Florida: They turned to heroin. Academic studies, news reports and government agencies all have lauded the success of this states overdue efforts to shutter its pill mills. None has documented „ or even suggested „ what The Post found: East of the Mississippi, as Florida-supplied oxycodone began disappearing, deaths tied to that and similar drugs started falling. And simultaneously, deaths linked to heroin started rising. And as a reminder, Florida lawmakers still have not done much to help with the heroin crisis.Report: Florida lawmakers, including Marco Rubio, ignited Americas heroin crisisBy LAWRENCE MOWERHERALD/TIMES TALLAHASSEE BUREAU Editors note: The writer, emeritus professor of government at USF St. Petersburg, composed this a few days before the Legislature approved HB 21. Yes, I need pain medsŽ was the headline on an essay I wrote for the Perspective section of the Tampa Bay Times three years ago. That article generated a response like nothing else I had ever published. I dont know if readers reacted to that headline or to the version that accompanied my column on the Times website: Help Floridians who have chronic pain get the meds they need.Ž But more than 400 individuals emailed or wrote to me describing the problems they encountered in getting pain meds they needed. Perhaps they found a kindred spirit. I am one of them. I have had chronic pain for more than half a century. Just a few years ago, Florida had a massive problem with drug abuse due to the growth of pill mills.Ž So many out-of-state residents ”ocked to Florida to get easy access to opioids that I-275 was labeled the Oxy Express.Ž In 2010, 650 million oxycodone pills were prescribed in Florida, enough for 34 pills per resident. That same year, 98 of the top 100 doctors dispensing oxycodone resided in Florida. Deaths from overdoses skyrocketed. To combat the problem, Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi established the Florida Regulatory Drug Enforcement Task Force. Florida cracked down on drug manufacturers and pharmacies responsible for the distribution of hundreds of millions of pills to the pill mills. The state also arrested 3,742 people, including 67 physicians, seized more than $10 million in cash and shut down 254 pill mills. The Legislature passed a law requiring that only certi“ed pain specialists could prescribe Schedule I and II controlled substances. As a result of these actions, the number of oxycodone pills distributed in Florida was cut by more than half. Where 98 of the top 100 doctors prescribing oxycodone lived in Florida in 2010, by 2013 only two of the top 100 prescribers were Floridians. Now the governor and Legislature want to impose a threeto seven-day limit on opioids, even though studies indicate that less than one-third of opioid abusers got their drugs from a doctor. They may be attacking an issue that is not the primary problem associated with drug abuse. Of the 63,000 drug deaths in 2016, 19,000 were related to fentanyl. Much of the fentanyl is illegally imported from China, and the drug is mixed with heroin or other illegal drugs. Heroin accounted for another 15,500 deaths. Pain meds accounted for 14,500 deaths, but a majority of these were not from doctor-prescribed opioids. A threeto seven-day limit on pain meds will be especially burdensome for Floridas senior citizens. Instead of seeing a doctor once a month, they will now have to see the doctor from four to 10 times a month. Doctors will not be able to deal with the tremendous increase in patient visits. Many pain patients are elderly and will have problems getting to the doctors of“ce every three to seven days. Paying for all of these extra visits is another burden that many Florida residents will be unable to afford. The threeto seven-day policy means that many Floridians will no longer be able to visit friends and family in another state. Do I visit the grandkids or do I stay home to get my meds? Many retirees look forward to travel, especially overseas. This is now out of the question. Its hard to visit Europe or Australia if you have to be back to see your doctor in three to seven days. Many Floridians will face one of three choices, and none of them are good. First, those who can will move to another state with less restrictive policies. Few individuals can afford this option, but those who can will likely move. Option two is that many Floridians will turn to illicit drugs. Dr. Sarah Wakeman, a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, notes that more people are buying drugs on the illicit market now because they cant “nd the opioids they were used to getting.Ž A third option is that some will end their lives. It doesnt take long to search the literature of pain patients to “nd stories about those who commit suicide rather than endure constant pain and withdrawal because they cant get their pain meds. The Legislature needs to crack down on abuses by drug companies and those who sell illegal drugs, and not on Floridians who have a documented need for pain meds. Both Democrats and Republicans have insisted that government not interfere with the doctor/ patient relationship, but that is exactly what is happening. I did not vote for my legislator to be my doctor. I already have one.

The increasing number of deaths and injuries will probably continue to rise. While there are no good reasons for road rage, some of these groups of cyclists taking over a public road make one wonder. Public roads are not the place for human-powered transportation and the current law permitting such should be rescinded. Maybe your paper can encourage this? There are several other reasons that this bicycling mania now in style should be better controlled. € Their fun activity should be funded by them and not by the general public. € No users of public roads should be allowed unless they can maintain the minimum speed. € Crash tests and other safety and licensing rules imposed on automobiles might be required also for bicycles.John P. Derr Port CharlotteEditor: Commissioner Stephen Roger Deutsch, be a man of your word; withdraw from the race for District 4 commissioner. You said you would deliver a solution to the Murdock Village money pit. The solution is close enough with Private Equity Group sealing the deal in August or September. You may go now. You only ask questions for which you know the answers. We see through your political tactics. For example, during the May Utilities Update meeting you asked if roads could be paved after being torn up by unwanted sewer construction in Spring Lake. You asked the question in order to appear to care about the people. Even though it wasnt publicized, you already knew paving would start this month as evidenced by the paving being done on Spring Lake Boulevard and on the streets connecting to West Tarpon Boulevard. Where was your care for the people when you voted for sewers? Where was your compassion when you voted to force massive sewer costs on senior citizens after they told you they struggled to afford their medications? You think your support of veterans causes is reason to vote for you. Support of veterans is expected of patriots in this community. Everyone in the community and on the board supports our veterans. You have made a career milking the taxpayers udders for almost 40 years. This goes beyond the ideas our forefathers had when they established our government. Its past time to for you to retire!Susan Hutt Port CharlotteEditor: In the 1990s when visiting my parents in Punta Gorda, I was fortunate to discover Guidittas, a womens clothing store with an incredible array of womens fashions. Guidittas, owned by Judy Damron, was initially located at Fishermens Village, later moving downtown to Editor: I “nd it inconceivable that on the same page in Fridays paper there was a lengthy article about the passing of Koko the gorilla and a list of his accomplishments but only a short article about the passing of Dr. Charles Krauthammer mentioning only a few things about his life. In his “rst year at Harvard Medical School, Charles Krauthammer, at the age of 22, suffered a neck injury while diving at a swimming pool. After 14 months recovering in the hospital, he returned to medical school and “nished his medical training despite being paralyzed from the neck down. He was truly a Renaissance man achieving mastery in “elds of psychiatry, speech writing, print journalism and television. He won the Edwin Dunlop prize for excellence in psychiatric research and clinical medicine. Dr. Krauthammer wanted to reach a broader platform and began a career as a columnist and political commentator. He made no compunction about calling out those in power, whether they were Democrats, Republicans or conservatives. In 1987, he won the Pulitzer Prize as a columnist and the National Magazine Award. He was also the author of several best selling books. One could go on and on about his accomplishments. But I guess the passing of a gorilla seemed to warrant more media attention then the passing of the brilliant Charles Krauthammer. But then what can you expect from a liberal newspaper?Linda Fellin EnglewoodEditor: Dear Mr. President, I am not fearful of MS-13, ISIS or illegal immigration. I am fearful for millions of Americans not having affordable health insurance coverage. I am fearful for Americans being gunned down while attending school, their place of worship or a music concert. I am fearful for Americans living below the poverty level while unable to earn a living wage. I am fearful for womens rights to slowly slip away. I am fearful of the continued division of our great country with your empty rhetorical daily Tweets.Ž I am fearful of the coming trade wars driving the cost of everything skyward. I am fearful of the stock market crashing and our country heading into another recession. Stop the fear-mongering. Lets make America think again.Kenneth A. Liddle RotondaNorth Port finally will get its community poolOUR POSITION: A long time coming; a community necessity.Englewood has a public beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Four, actually, including one in Charlotte County, two in Sarasota County and one state park. A plethora of world-class public beaches, if you will. Port Charlotte has a beach complex, too. Punta Gorda doesnt, but it has a harbor. Venices beaches stretch from the spectacular, unspoiled Caspersen Beach in the south to Venice Beach near the jetty in the north. And the landlocked North Port? Low and dry. No public swimming facilities other than a long ride west to neighboring beaches or the old YMCA pool, owned by the city. That was “ne when the city of North Port had 15,000 or 20,000 residents „ as it did only 20 or 15 years ago. But it is clearly inadequate for a city of 67,000 people (and rising rapidly). Especially for a city whose demographics skew far lower than the Charlotte-Sarasota median. Its a large, family-oriented city where not everyone has a backyard pool; a city that roasts in the spring-summer-fall heat of Southwest Florida. North Port needs a proper community pool. North Port has needed a proper community pool for a couple of decades now, but it hasnt built one, despite the energetic efforts of a small group of dedicated advocates, led by the indomitable Joan Morgan. Until now. North Port city of“cials picked up ceremonial shovels yesterday morning and turned a spadeful of sand for a new community pool and water park. Finally! The ceremony took place at Butler Park near the Morgan Family Community Center off Price Boulevard. Naturally and appropriately, its the site of the new park. The pool/water park, which is due to be completed by July 2019, will include a 25-meter stretch pool, three water slides and a lazy river water feature. It will have a kiddie pool, a childrens play area and shaded areas to escape the relentless Florida sun. All that is next to the aforementioned Community Center and ball“elds of Butler Park, across from North Port High School and down the street from Heron Creek Middle School. Its the perfect spot, an epicenter of family life in this growing city. The cost is roughly $12 million. Capital construction funding of $11.1 million will come from the city surtax „ a portion of the sales tax „ with the rest to be made up in parks and recreation impact fees, which come from new construction. At this point, no ad valorem property tax money is due for construction, but some burden is likely to fall on property taxpayers in the future. When designs were “rst drawn years ago, the stumbling block wasnt the upfront cost but ongoing maintenance and operations. In 2011, a potential $600,000 price tag for annual operation froze city commissioners. Two years ago, consultants warned it would cost $200,000 to keep a pool running, which again scared off city commissioners. After much debate and “ddling with scope and design, the commission “nally moved forward. The numbers are still fuzzy. But city of“cials hope user fees will support roughly 50 percent of the costs. The expectation also is that water park features in this larger facility will bring in bigger paying crowds. We can hope, but the projections really are estimates. Projected user fees may be $10 for adults and $8 for children and seniors. City residents would get $2 off entrance fees. Were hopeful the costs will be reasonable and sustainable. Nevertheless, big picture, a public pool/water park is a must-have community amenity for a landlocked city of this size in sunny Florida. It deserves support. This groundbreaking is cause for celebration.Candidates columnsCandidates for local of“ce in Charlotte and Sarasota counties are invited to write one editorial column to run in the Sun before the Primary Election.

Nelson and all Democrat senators just signed on to a bill which will prohibit law enforcement of“cials from removing a child from a parent within 100 miles of the border or anywhere adjacent or near the port of entry (which when interpreted loosely could include the entire U.S.). except for three subjective circumstances: Since children cannot be incarcerated with parents, it follows the parent cannot be incarcerated (arrested). This bill does not differentiate between illegal immigrant children and legal U.S. children. This is an open border bill which will encourage millions of illegal families to enter the country with no fear of consequences. Florida with its warm year-round temperature may become a magnet for millions of these families. Does our state have the capacity to provide housing for an in”ux of families; do our schools have the capacity to accommodate all the additional children; do our medical facilities have the ability to provide health care to an overwhelming number of additional adults and children? I certainly dont have any answers and while I too feel compassion for those seeking a better life, I cant help but question the concept of leaving our borders open so that every family in the world who would like to enjoy the bene“ts of living in the U.S. can cross our southern border knowing they cannot be arrested and deported.

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINT WEEK IN REVIEW A recent article in the Sun indicated that Florida is second in the nation for bike deaths. There was, however, a slight drop in bicycle deaths in 2017 compared to 2016. Four fatalities were reported in 2016 compared to one in 2017. The climate in Florida is conducive to bicycle use for riders, however many bicyclists use bikes for shopping and travel to and from the work place. In a subsequent article on May 15, 2018, the paper published a bicycle quiz that I thought was informative. It is unfortunate that many cyclists are unaware of or do not follow the rules of the road. It also is evident that motorists are not following the rules. Florida statutes state that a cyclist has all of the rights of the roadway applicable to any driver. A common rule that seems to be disregarded by a motorist is the threefoot rule when passing a cyclist. Many times when riding a bike, motorists have come dangerously close and in fact, once a truck hit a mirror on my bike. Charlotte County is proactive in providing bike paths, wide sidewalks and bike trails. In Florida, it is legal for a cyclist to use sidewalks, but they must follow all rules, such as using audible signals to alert pedestrians when riding on sidewalks. Also, at intersections the cyclist must observe all rules of the road. In the Parkside area of Port Charlotte, the county is proactive in designing and installing wide sidewalks which accommodate both pedestrian and cyclist. The purpose is to link all sections of Parkside to the medical district and the Promenades Mall for access to stores in the mall. The reconstruction of U.S. 41 in the Port Charlotte area provides cyclists with a designated bike lane. It seems that some cyclists are not observing all the rules in that some are riding against the traf“c on the wrong side of the highway. A cyclist must be extra careful when there are right-hand turn lanes at intersections and entrances to shopping malls. The bike lane puts the rider between two lanes of traf“c and he must watch for vehicles changing lanes abruptly. Also, it is important to observe all traf“c light and to yield to pedestrians crossing the road. Florida law states that a bicycle operator who rides between sunset and sunrise must be equipped with a lamp exhibiting a white light visible from a distance of at least 500 feet.Ž In addition, a lamp and a re”ector on the rear exhibiting a red light visible from a distance of 600 feet to the rear.Ž An operator under the age of 16 must wear a helmet. It is suggested that all operators wear helmets. As this column was being “nished, an article in the Sun dated May 26, reported on two highway accidents occurring the previous week. The “rst accident occurred when a teen was hit while riding a bicycle on U.S. 41. The teen was at fault because he did not observe traf“c signals. Although not required, the teen was not wearing a helmet. The driver of the motor vehicle hitting the cyclist was not charged. A second teen was struck by a vehicle while he was crossing U.S. 41 on foot. This accident was determined to be a hit and run. Remember that highway safety is the responsibility of all drivers whether operating a motor vehicle or by all bikers using the roadway.Candidates ForumCharlotte County has a primary election in August. The Charlotte County Curmudgeon Club will sponsor a Meet the Candidates Forum at the Charlotte County Cultural Center on Aug. 1. It is encouraged that all eligible voters familiarize themselves with the candidates on the ballot. This year several positions on the Airport Authority and County Commission races will be decided. Looking ahead to the November election, many questions will be on the ballot that will affect our pocketbooks, including an increase in school taxes and the increase in the homestead exemption.

They funded and coordinated the development of the Citizens Master Plan and spearheaded the recovery that kept our town such a special place to live. The “rst step taken by TEAM was to hire a world-renowned urban planner to work with the citizens of Punta Gorda to develop the Citizens Master Plan 2005. Once the Master Plan was completed and gifted to the city, TEAM began the process of seeing that the plan was implemented. A major emphasis was to build a close working relationship with city and Charlotte County governments to provide volunteer citizen assistance in rebuilding our community. TEAM quickly became a grassroots organization of active volunteers. Today, TEAM Punta Gorda engages over 500 community volunteers per year in three areas:Community Service Community service includes projects like Paint Your Heart Out, Punta Gorda, where over 100 volunteers paint eight homes in one day each year for homeowners in need. This program has expanded to include raising money for badly needed home repairs. After Hurricane Irma this year, TEAM volunteers turned out in numbers to clean up the citys parks. TEAM also funds and operates the yellow bike program along the Harborwalk. Due to the dedication of our volunteers, the public can ride one of 44 free loaner bicycles for transportation, or recreation. Community ProjectsThe list of community projects completed by TEAM Punta Gorda since 2005 is very long. A sampling includes: Provided beauti“cation and landscaping all over town, starting with Marion Avenue after Charley. Developed a thriving Community Garden Program in three public areas. Developed the Parks That Teach Program (now operated by the Charlotte Master Gardeners) and the Artisans Atelier (now operated by the Downtown Merchants Association). Provided many amenities in town, such as the way-“nder kiosks along the Punta Gorda Pathways, funding the equipment for the PGFDs EMTs on bikes, and the naturalist interpretive signs along the Harborwalk. Weve saved the city many dollars through these projects and offered the community a way to get engaged. Community DevelopmentTEAM often serves as convener for conversations that need to happen. An example of this is the Housing Workgroup convened in 2016 to bring together community leaders to talk about housing. We brought in a resource expert and held a seminar then discussed the implications for Punta Gorda. The group is still working in this area under the leadership of the Gulfcoast Partnership. Were often asked about our position on individual development projects under consideration by the City Council. Its simple. TEAM Punta Gorda does not take positions on individual development projects. The opinions held by TEAM on development principles can be readily accessed in the Citizens Master Plan (available at www.teampuntagorda. org). We look forward to the citys efforts to update the plan. Were pleased that city leaders actively seek community input. During the development of the Citizens Master Plan there was a joyfulness, a positive energy and a visionary quality to the community conversation. There was excitement and hope for a better future for our community. Todays conversations seem “lled with anger, angst and criticism instead of civility and new ideas. As the city moves into its intended update of the Citizens Master Plan, wed like to see it be a constructive dialogue. TEAM Punta Gorda will be there, too, fully engaged in the conversation. TEAM Punta Gorda is a 501(c)(3) nonpro“t organization. Nancy Johnson is the CEO of TEAM Punta Gorda. Ideas or questions can be addressed to team@ teampuntagorda.org. Or, call 941-637-TEAM (8326).

Lawrence David Mills Jr. A record-setting 10 million Floridians have signed up to donate their organs after death „ including about 60 percent of drivers in Charlotte and Sarasota counties. But just 1 to 2 percent of all deaths on average meet the criteria necessary for donations to happen „ according to information from LifeLink Senior Public Affairs Coordinator Betsy Edwards. Serving all the hospitals in Charlotte and Sarasota counties, LifeLink, a nonpro“t organization, is the areas federally designated organ procurement organization. Edwards said in order for organ donation to potentially take place, a donor must be in a hospital and on a ventilator when pronounced brain dead. Thats not what happens when many people die. But when it is, a ventilator can keep blood ”owing through organs so they are viable and suitable to save another persons life, according to Edwards. Even under this traditional organ donation criteria in the U.S., time is of the essence. In a home death like Tankersleys, the environment is uncontrolled and the exact timing of death cant be certain, according to Edwards. Jones said they were told the death likely happened within about a half-hour of discovery. He said within hours of his nephews lifeless body being removed from the home by emergency medical workers, Jones searched online for organ donation information. He read that kidneys could be good for up to 72 hours. But according to some medical studies, kidneys require a constant supply of oxygen and when that stops they usually need to be removed and preserved within at least 40 minutes. Then, a healthy kidney is transported in cool saltwater that preserves the organ for up to 48 hours. This gives health care providers time to perform tests to ensure matches of donor and recipient blood and tissues, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Hospitals and their doctors are tasked with saving lives. Still, they are required to report deaths that have occurred or that are imminent. LifeLink physically handles all the areas organ donations, and has recovery surgeons on staff, Edwards said. Although we are not a transplant center, we work with LifeLink of Florida „ the federally designated organ procurement organization „ to identify patients who may be eligible for organ donation,Ž said Kim Savage, Sarasota Memorial Hospitals public information of“cer. All determinations of eligibility are made by LifeLink, which serves 15 counties in west Florida, including Sarasota and Charlotte counties,Ž said Savage. But the stipulation that deaths occur in a hospital is not required by any regulation or law, Edwards con“rmed. Its a matter of biology,Ž she said. When blood stops ”owing through the organ, its not considered viable by LifeLink for donation. Some countries such as Netherlands and the United Kingdom, however, have found that donations after circulatory deaths have almost doubled their numbers of deceased organ donors. Very strict organ selection may reduce the risk of poor initial function after transplantation, but it also carries the risk that viable organs are discarded, which may result in the death of patients on the waiting list who otherwise could have been transplanted,Ž stated a 2016 paper in the journal Transplant InternationalŽ from the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam. Edwards said she couldnt speak to practices in other countries. But she said more people who decide to be donors increases the chances that more lives will be saved. We are seeing more organs being made available for transplant,Ž Edwards said. Throughout 15 Florida counties in 2015 served by LifeLink, 207 organ donors saved more than 600 lives, according to the organization. And though not necessarily life-saving, tissue and eye removal for donation can occur within 24 hours of death. Tankersley died just a couple months after receiving a life-saving stroke treatment at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. The family said they were told an autopsy would not be performed because Tankersley suffered heart problems most of his life. He had a pacemaker since childhood. In May, while recovering at his grandparents home in Port Charlotte where he lived, Tankersley told the Sun that the procedure gave him a chance at life that he didnt think he otherwise would have had. Tankersley had returned to work at Best Buy and was happy, said Jones who was visiting the area last week through the weekend and also staying at his parents house. There was no warning whatsoever,Ž said Jones. My mom and dad got to spend two months with him ƒ I got to see him.Ž Tankersley hadnt registered as an organ donor, but Jones said he thinks his nephew would have supported his familys decision to donate his organs had it been possible. If no instructions are left prior to death about organ donation in Florida, the right to decide can fall on certain family members. It would have been left with Tankersleys mother, as he was unmarried. David had such a big heart and gave out so much love, he didnt have enough to keep his body going,Ž said Tankersleys mother, Carol Brock, from Ore City, Texas. He gave it all away.Ž Funeral arrangements have not been set.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comORGANFROM PAGE 1 2017 FL ORIDA ORGAN DONOR REGISTRATION RATESThe donor registration rate is how many people say yes to being an organ donor during drivers license transactions.

The chances of getting struck over a lifetime here are just 1 in 3,000, the National Weather Service says. When Zannone and Barton stepped on to the beach that day, 500 people had been killed by lightning in Florida since 1959, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration records. Sunday also marked the start of the National Lightning Safety Councils Lightning Safety Awareness Week. Theyd met six weeks earlier, when Barton installed a bathroom sink in her Tampa home. He was kind and funny, with a gentle spirit and sense of adventure, said Zannone, a 44-year-old systems analyst for Tampa General Hospital. They shared a passion for astrology, hot peppers and the beach. They decided on Siesta Key for Sundays outing because Barton knew of a prime snorkeling spot along the barrier island off the coast of Sarasota. On the ride down, Barton played a song called Bartender by the Dave Matthews Band, one of his favorite groups: If I go before Im old, oh brother of mine, please dont forget me if I goƒ Oh and if I die, before my time, oh sweet sister of mine please dont regret me if I goŽ They parked near the Siesta Key Beach Pavilion and walked south along the beach under a blazing sun for about a mile, then swam. They lounged on the beach for a bit, then Barton swam south to Point of Rocks, an area of shallow water dotted with limestone formations. As Barton snorkeled, Zannone spent the next two hours or so reading at the waters edge. About 2 p.m., dark clouds began to roll in from the south. Rain drops pattered onto the pages of Zannones book, a memoir called Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle. As the sky grew darker and lightning ”ashed, swimmers hustled out of the water. Zannone spotted a smiling Barton walking up the beach. He said the water was clear and beautiful and he had a great time,Ž Zannone recalled. She grabbed her bag and they started the long trek to the car. About 10 minutes later, the sky opened wider. They kept walking. Im not afraid of storms and neither is James, so we werent thinking about it in a fearful way even though it was really, really bad,Ž said Zannone, a Florida resident since 1989. Im beating myself up about why I didnt say, Lets just go “nd shelter.  € € € Barton was just a foot or two from Zannone when the bolt hit. Shed once been shocked plugging in a home appliance, and this jolt felt 10,000 times worse,Ž she said. Looking up from the sand, she saw light dancing above Bartons head. Sparks ”ared near his waist. He fell over. Stunned and unable to move, Zannone screamed Bartons name, though she couldnt hear herself. She summoned the strength to roll to her knees and dragged herself to him. She yanked his smoking swim “ns from under his arm and tossed them aside. She screamed for help. Michelle Trippi of St. Petersburg was gathered with some friends on a covered patio at the nearby Peppertree Bay vacation rentals when the bolt struck. Her husband had been standing just outside the pool gate, and the force of the strike knocked him off his feet. The clap was loud enough to be felt in your stomach and chest,Ž Trippi said. They heard cries for help and Zannone appeared on the sandy walkway, yelling for someone to call 911. Trippi, 42, and others ran with Zannone back to Barton, who was lying motionless in the sand. They turned him over and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was already so blue when I got to him, and cold almost,Ž Trippi recalled. Lifeguards and paramedics arrived and loaded Barton into an ambulance. Zannone rode up front, praying as paramedics continued to pump Bartons chest. When they arrived at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Zannone overheard one of the paramedics say something like, Hes gone,Ž to another hospital worker. She broke into sobs. Zanonne sat by Bartons bedside afterward, still in shock. I held his hand,Ž she recalled through tears, and kept saying, James, come back. James, come back.Ž € € € For Bartons friends and family, grief swirls with disbelief. Danny Kubisiak, Bartons close friend and roommate, “nds himself waiting for him to burst through the door of their mobile home and greet his black cat, Ace. He said Barton loved remote control cars, virtual reality video games and “shing. Kubisiak, 30, is glad Barton spent his last hours snorkeling. It was kind of his getaway,Ž he said. Theres no sound, just you and the ocean, and he loved every minute of it.Ž Barton was born at Tampa General Hospital, the oldest of three boys, and grew up in Tazewell, Va., a small town west of Roanoke, said his mother, Talena Goad. He served four years in the U.S. Army and moved to Florida about eight years ago. She called him an awesome man of God.Ž He was full of life,Ž she said. Youd never see him upset or mad.Ž A Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce report notes that Barton had a mark on the back of his head and a wound on his chin, possibly an exit wound from the lightning bolt. When Goad saw her sons body on Monday, he looked like he was sleeping peacefully. A nurse told her hed died instantly. Goad believes his death is part of a grander plan she doesnt yet understand. I dont know why, but God handpicked him for a reason, and thats whats giving me peace,Ž she said. Zannone is struggling to “nd her own peace. Physically, she thinks shes okay. The tingling in her feet stopped after a couple of days. Her heart is “ne and she was waiting Friday for MRI results. But the images from the beach play in a loop in her mind. She wonders why it was Barton and not her. And she wishes they had just walked straight off the beach. People need to take storms seriously and seek shelter immediately. I never thought this would happen but it has, and it was a horri“c experience that will never leave me.ŽFLASHFROM PAGE 1LIGHTNING SAFETY€ If you hear thunder, youre at risk of being struck by lightning and should seek shelter in a building or vehicle. Lightning often strikes outside the area of heavy rain and can strike as far as 10 miles from any rainfall. Many lightning deaths occur ahead of or after storms. € Stay in shelter for at least 30 minutes after you hear the last sound of thunder. € If youre caught in a storm, avoid open areas and bodies of water. Dont be the tallest object in the area. Stay away from isolated tall trees, towers or utility poles. € Avoid metal conductors such as wires or fences. Metal does not attract lightning, but lightning can travel long distances through it. € If you are with a group of people, spread out. While this increases the chance that someone might get struck, it tends to prevent multiple casualties. „ Source: National Weather Service 3440 Conway Blvd. #2A (Behind Post Office) € Port Charlotte DR.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSNORTH PORT „ While North Port organizations have had the ability to receive monetary help with events, the city is looking to streamline and expand the process. This is a conversation that started in February and the goal was to simplify, streamline, make it easier to use,Ž City Manager Pete Lear said. The special event assistance program was “rst created with the focus being on new organizations and nonpro“ts who otherwise would have dif“culties holding events. And while Vice Mayor Yates wanted to keep the program that way, the other commissioners pushed for a slight expansion. So maybe remove (the non-pro“t speci“cation) and have it visited as we need to,Ž Commissioner Debbie McDowell said. The whole thing is to have private events in the city. The more that come to North Port, the more people will come to appreciate our amazing city. We can do all things on a case by case basis.Ž But Yates believed there needed to be more regulation in order to encourage new organizations to host events. It completely changes the whole intent of the program to start new events and Im very concerned,Ž she said. Its just giving the money away, theres no measurements to it. Were going back to old ways.Ž Exactly,Ž Mayor Vanessa Carusone said. Under the new rules, the former quarterly application process was removed, which all commissioners agreed with. The commissioners also gave consensus to allow organizations to receive more than one award per year if the commission chooses. They can also allow subsidizing annual special events that are successful. With our commission now, Im not concerned,Ž Yates said. But this program was put in place because of issues in the past with favoritism.Ž However, the remaining current commissioners believed there are enough regulations to prevent that from happening, which can always be changed in the future. This has more accountability to it,Ž Commissioner Jill Luke said. Nothing is written in stone. Every two years you have a new commission, you have staff operating the program. Youll be able to see if it draws in more applicants and you can always tweak later. I understand your concerns but it gives you enough to go down the road to tweak later.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.com North Port looks to ease event assistance programBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER NORTH PORT „ The North Port City Commission has set out to ensure its event sponsorship program brings in the most businesses possible in a worthwhile way. At a February meeting, commissioners were concerned a presenting sponsor would be the only one of its kind at a city event. For example, if Moes Southwest Grill was the headlining sponsor for the Freedom Festival, no other Southwest Mexican food would be available other than Moes. Years ago (the exclusivity) was maybe a good thing because we didnt have that much participation,Ž Commissioner Debbie McDowell said at a February meeting. But the way its growing I think we should open it and maybe even add more signature events like the Road-E-O events. We also have no of“cial policy on this. Its just something city and staff implemented as a starting point.Ž The General Services Department alone hosts 26 events per year in the city, with more such as the Public Works Road-E-O and Economic Development Summit being added to the mix in recent years. The new proposed guidelines were intended to be implemented across the departments, to help streamline the process. There also was action taken to switch up the current process of a presenting sponsor getting automatic renewal to be the presenting sponsor the following year. The presenting sponsor had to let the city know three months before the event if they were interested. Under a new consensus, the sponsor now has to pay their fee nine months in advance or else the spot is open to any other interested entity. It is very valuable, which is why year after year companies wanna do it,Ž said Trisha Wisner, Parks and Recreation manager. Which is why extending from three months to nine months is important to us. We want to honor the relationship we built, however we want to give option (to other companies). A consensus was taken for gold, silver and bronze level sponsors to be unlimited for interested sponsors. The presenting sponsor only has one entity. The sponsorships will now have investment ranges instead of a hard investment number. Presenting sponsor: € $2,000-$5,000 investment range € Have one per event € Have to renew that right nine months before event Platinum sponsor: € $1,500-$5,000 investment range € Have 2-3 per event Gold sponsor: € $1,000-$1,900 investment range Silver sponsor: € $500-$999 investment range Bronze sponsor: € $250-$499 investment range In-kind sponsor: € Depends on value of contribution The city attorney will review and “ne tune the current agreement used to sign on a sponsor. Because it is not an ordinance or amendment, it does not need an of“cial vote which is why commissioners gave consensus instead on several items. According to Erin Bryce, General Services communications and outreach coordinator, the program will be enacted quickly while the administrative regulations are updated for the city manager.Email: lcoey@sun-herald.com North Port Commission revamps sponsorship programBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER Chronic Back & Joint Pain?

Question: I was wondering if you would give me your opinion. Im planning to build a spec house. It would be a 3 bed, 2 bath home with 1,325 square feet under air. For an extra $12,000, my builder will upgrade the home from a 2-car to a 3-car garage or increase the living space under air by 175 SqFt. The home would be completed in about a year. My questions are: Would it be better to apply the extra $12,000 to increase the square footage in the home or the garage? Which way is the market trending? Any thoughts or info would be appreciated. Answer: The market has been trending up. Locally, prices have increased sharply since they hit bottom in 2011. Regarding where to spend the extra $12,000 I would apply it towards increasing the living space under air. The size of your spec home will put it in a category that is attractive to “rst-time, entry-level buyers. This demographic values living space over garage space. Lets see if the numbers support this. The number of single family homes with 3-car garages that sold on the MLS over the past 12 months in Charlotte County is 313. Only one of those homes was as small as your spec home. The median sales price was $405,000. So clearly, a 3-car garage is out of character for a small home. If there was a demand, wed see more of them. Regarding any thoughts would be appreciatedŽ: My Dad had a favorite question he would pose to sales people. At the end of the pitch, he would say From your experience, what additional questions should I be asking you?Ž So, in that spirit, here are some more questions for you. 1: Why would a buyer pay extra for your spec home when they can go directly to the builder? The convenience factor and ability to move into a brand-new home immediately would be one reason. I know of a local investor who is capitalizing on this with high-end homes. I dont know if this is pro“table with entry-level homes. 2: How will you “nance the spec home? On the phone, you stated that you will partially “nance the stages of construction with a home-equity loan (on your existing home). That could be risky. During the bubble-burst of 2005 and “nancial meltdown of 2008, there were many unforeseen chain of events that led to waves of bankruptcies and foreclosures. Declining home prices turned huge numbers of equity-rich homeowners into under-water borrowers. Consequently, banks like Bank of America abruptly canceled borrowers ability to withdraw any more money from their home-equity loans. Do you have a backup plan for unforeseen situations like this? 3: Do you have any guarantee that the builders “nal bill will not exceed the quoted price? You should review the contract with a real estate attorney. Some contracts have escalation fees which hold you responsible if the builders costs increase during construction. Given the rapid escalation in labor and materials cost, that seems likely. 4: Have you run the numbers to discover the sales price youll need just to break even? At 6 percent commission, the total cost of sale will be about 7 percent. Other expenses will include the interest charges on your equity-line. Keep in mind that equity-line interest is not “xed like 30-year mortgages. Interest rates are trending up, so discuss the possible scenarios with your lender. 5: Is there any guarantee your home will be completed in a year? The low un-employment rate and heated economy are expected to increase in”ation, which would increase the interest rate on your equity loan. The longer it takes to complete your home, the more youll pay in interest. In 2005, there was a wellknown builder on the Cape Haze Peninsula. He got so busy, he included a clause in his contracts that stipulated he was not bound to any completion date if he had more than ten homes under construction. Its hard to imagine anyone who signed that contract really read that clause. 6: Are there any mandatory septic-to-sewer conversions planned for the area where you are building? You dont want to install a costly septic system with the expectation that you, or your buyer, may be required to rip it out and pay thousands more for a sewer connection a few years down the road. I hope this helps. Good luck with your decision. Brett Slattery is broker/ owner of Brett Slattery Realty llc in Charlotte County.

But remodeling and renovations could set you back thousands of dollars for each room. A midrange minor kitchen remodelŽ „ including hardware, countertops, ”ooring and a refrigerator „ is about $21,000, on average, according to Remodeling magazines 2018 Cost vs. Value report. But with the right approach, you can give your abode some TLC without busting your budget. If youre strategic with the planning, especially if youre willing to put in a little sweat equity, there are de“nite simple “xes that you can make,Ž says Dan DiClerico, a home expert at HomeAdvisor. Try these ways to update your home for less.Rearrange the furnitureHeres a solution that wont cost a dime: a new room layout. You can work with what you already have to make your space feel new again. Consider ideas like moving the bed to the opposite wall or swapping the location of the sofa and chair in the living room.Grab a paint brushSlap a fresh coat of paint on the walls for a quick makeover. Hiring a professional to tackle the entire interior can set you back close to $2,000, DiClerico says. But youll cut costs by taking on the project yourself. Dont have the time or money to paint the whole house? Choose one or two areas that you spend the most time in, such as the living room or bedroom. If youre able to do it yourself, certainly under $100 is going to get you a bucket of paint and all the necessary tools to totally transform that space,Ž DiClerico says. Try the same tactic with furniture. Fresh paint or a new “nish can revitalize old cabinets, tables, dressers and other items.Replace fixtures and hardwareNew light “xtures, faucets or cabinet hardware can give a room a completely different look and feel. Cosmetic changes can bene“t your wallet, too. You can “nd cabinet handles and knobs at most home improvement and hardware stores for a few dollars each. Some faucets and shower heads reduce water use, which means you could save money each month.Limit your upgradesYou dont have to revamp every inch of a room. DiClerico suggests that you splurge on the things youre interacting with on a daily basis.Ž So rather than shell out half a years salary for a complete kitchen remodel, upgrade a few select items. You can do a sweep of appliances „ the fridge, the range, the dishwasher „ for a few thousand dollars or less,Ž DiClerico says. Explore other ways to scale back on costs. You might purchase a coffee table or chair in lieu of a living room set, or install new ”ooring in a small, heavily traf“cked location instead of every room.AccessorizeRedecorating can be much more affordable „ and just as effective „ as major upgrades. You can cozy up a space and add a pop of color with throw pillows, lamps, area rugs or plants. Dress up windows with brand new curtains. Or, pick a statement piece for the wall, like a large work of art or mirror. Its about zeroing in on the focal points in that space to get the bang for the buck,Ž DiClerico says.Cover your furnitureSalvage couches and armchairs that have minor wear and tear with slipcovers. While getting a piece of furniture reupholstered or buying an entirely new piece can cost hundreds to several thousand dollars, you can buy a quality cover for less than $100.Shop smartKnowing when and where to shop can help you trim expenses. For example, January white sales are prime time for discounted bedding. Presidents Day sales in February often include furniture, while Novembers Black Friday deals feature appliances. Map out your purchases accordingly, if you can. Check thrift stores, yard sales and local online marketplaces like Craigslist throughout the year for cheap or free secondhand furniture and home goods. Making your home more beautiful, more functional, more energy ef“cient shouldnt have to put you in the poorhouse or into debt,Ž DiClerico says.

Theyre right to ask because starter homes are becoming increasingly scarce in many housing markets. Housing inventory is low and home prices are soaring. Whats a “rst-time buyer to do? Here are “ve tips for “nding a starter home: € Be realistic about todays market: Sellers clearly have an advantage in the current market. Inventory is low, which keeps pushing home prices to record levels, according to the National Association of Realtors. Buyer competition is “erce as homes in the lower price ranges ”y off the market. Unfortunately, that leaves many “rst-time buyers „ especially those with tight budgets „ on the sidelines. If youre searching for your “rst home, be realistic about what you can afford and what amenities come with that budget. (Hint: You may have to forgo top-of-the-line appliances and shiny quartz countertops.) A starter home isnt necessarily your forever home. Be prepared to make some compromises to get your foot in the homeownership door. € Adjust your wish list: Buyers shopping for their “rst home need to be open-minded about the location, size and condition of the home they want to buy, said Tim Deihl, associate broker with Gibson Sothebys International Realty in Boston. For many buyers, a classic starter home, which traditionally doesnt have many amenities, is more achievable. If your “rst home is the place youre going to have your family, maybe build an addition and stay there forever; thats one set of criteria. If your starter home will be a “nancial launch pad into a larger, better home, thats a different approach,Ž Deihl said. Another strategy: Look for an older home in a well-established neighborhood. Resales typically cost less than brand-new homes, said Bradley Hunter, chief economist for HomeAdvisor.com, a home-improvement matching service based in Golden, Colo. Older homes typically need more maintenance and repairs, which offset some of the savings. However, Hunter said, buyers who choose a used home might be able to do repairs and renovations over time, pacing themselves to make the cost manageable. € Hire the right real estate agent: When youre up against stiff competition, working with an experienced real estate agent who knows the local market is key. Look for an agent who specializes in the neighborhoods youre interested in. Savvy agents should be able to answer your questions about neighborhood amenities, local schools, crime and nearby home values. A good agent shines when it comes to negotiating the deal and writing a strong offer letter backed with solid data. Your agent can suggest certain strategies to win in a competitive market, such as limiting contingencies or writing a personal letter. Ask friends and relatives to recommend agents they have used and were happy with. Also, interview two or three different agents. Find out how they prefer to communicate with clients and how often youll get updates. Finally, research the agents youre considering online to see what past clients have said about their work. € Rethink location: If youre thinking about starting a family in the future, dont focus too much on your homes location, size and school district just yet, Deihl said. Resetting those parameters can make it easier to buy a “rst home. Buyers may be in a position where schools wont impact them for six or seven years,Ž Deihl said. Thats a good opportunity to buy in the city, make some money and roll that into a community where they want to be longer-term with the kids.Ž Buyers who sacri“ce location for affordability can “nd themselves in a neighborhood far from major job centers with a long daily commute and expensive transportation costs. Sometimes that tradeoff makes sense, but not always, said Cathy Coneway, a broker for Stanberry & Associates Realtors in Austin, Texas. You have to look at how much you make and how much you can afford to spend for gas,Ž Coneway said. You might actually be better off buying a house thats closer to town so you have more cash ”ow for property taxes, insurance and living expenses.Ž € Make a strong offer: When a well-priced starter house comes on the market, the quest to buy it can be super competitive,Ž Deihl said. One way to strengthen an offer is to present a loan preapproval that includes everything but a title search, appraisal and hazard insurance, said Jay Dacey, a mortgage broker at Metropolitan Financial Mortgage Co. in Minneapolis. A strategic phone call might help, too. We call the listing agent and say, Mr. and Mrs. Jones submitted an offer on your property. Not only are they preapproved, but theyve gone through the underwriting approval process with our bank,Ž Dacey said. That makes the offer stronger.Ž Other ways to entice sellers: Offer above asking price (if you can afford to), keep repair requests to a minimum, make a larger down payment or give them more time to move after closing.Five tips to help you find a starter homeBy DEBORAH KEARNSBANKRATE.COM 18440 Paulson Dr., Suite B, Port Charlotte, FL 33954www.acergranite” a.comcontact@acergranitecorp.com Mon-Fri 9-5 € Sat 9-Noon € Closed SundayWe have the LARGEST GRANITE INVENTORY in Charlotte County, with over 800 slabs to select from on our lot!Ballot #359 Granite Supplieradno=50536771 for forUS!

Page 16 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 4 The private pension system in the U.S. is in transition. The shift is from de“ned bene“t pension plans wholly controlled by employers to de“ned-contribution 401(k) plans that are partially controlled by the employees enrolled in them. This is happening largely because 401(k) plans provide greater ”exibility to employers, avoiding the large balance-sheet liability generated by the employers commitment to provide de“ned bene“ts over an inde“nite future period. From a retiree perspective, however, de“ned-contribution plans have two major weaknesses. The weakness that has generated the most attention is that employees have not been saving enough in their 401(k) to assure a comfortable retirement. Some of the reasons for this, along with initiatives aimed at encouraging higher 401(k) saving rates, were noted in a recent article by Anne Tergesen in the Wall Street Journal. She cited the following measures aimed at raising saving rates, which either have been adopted or are pending in legislative proposals: € Systems that enroll employees into 401(k) plans automatically, requiring laggards and procrastinators to opt out. € Authorization of multiple employer plans for small “rms that have no plans of their own. € More convenient methods that employees who are changing employers can use to transfer their accounts to the new employers, avoiding cash-outs that can result in spending splurges. € Emergency funds that would co-exist alongside 401(k) accounts so employees do not raid their 401(k)s to meet emergencies. € An option for investing 401(k) funds in an annuity. The second major weakness of 401(k) plans, which has not generated much if any attention, is that they do not include any way for the individual retiree to manage mortality risk. Such management is an integral feature of de“ned-bene“t plans because the employer delivers pensions for life to a group of employees with markedly different lifespans. In contrast, employees with 401(k)s are on their own. While allowing retirees to purchase annuities might be viewed as a step in that direction, the wisdom of purchasing annuities before to retirement is highly questionable. In my view, the retirees objective during working years ought to be to accumulate as large a nest egg of “nancial assets as possible. Annuities do not “t that objective. After retirement, however, when “nancial assets begin to be drawn down to meet living expenses, that judgment ”ips. If there is any likelihood that the retiree could outlive the assets, some of the assets should be allocated to the purchase of a deferred annuity. But doing that makes sense only within the framework of a “nancial plan that integrates the annuity with a scheme for drawing down “nancial assets over time. Further, if the retiree is a homeowner, the plan can also include a reverse mortgage. Here is an example of an integrated retirement plan: The retiree at 63 has a nest egg of $1 million of common stock and a house worth $400,000 with no mortgage. The plan objective is to maximize the spendable funds available to the retiree that will increase by 2 percent a year, subject to investment risk that the retiree “nds tolerable. The retirees $1 million nest egg is divided into two parts. One part for $567,122 remains invested and will be drawn down as a source of spendable funds over 20 years. The remaining $432,878 is used to purchase a monthly annuity deferred 20 years. The allocation of the $1 million between the two uses is such that the initial draw amount from the assets plus a HECM term payment, amounting to $6,047, growing by 2 percent a year, after 19 years will be just 2 percent below the initial annuity payment of $8,986 that begins in the following year. A plan of this type must also be managed in response to deviations between the rate of return assumed in calculating the amounts that could be drawn from month to month, and actual returns. My example assumed a 20-year return of 11.24 percent, which was the median return on common stock during all 20-year periods between 1926 and 2012. The return that materializes is equally likely to be lower or higher. If the return is larger than assumed, the retiree can draw more, accumulate “nancial assets, or both. If the return is lower than assumed, the retiree must scale down the draw amounts to avoid asset depletion. The size of the adjustment depends on the size of the earnings shortfall. The retiree will be aware of the adjustments that might be required by earnings short falls, and will take account of them in deciding on the amount to draw from assets. For example, if the adjustment that might be required using the median draw is viewed as excessive, the retiree could scale down the initial draw, making a shortfall less likely, and the adjustments associated with a shortfall smaller.

Comments and questions can be left at http://www. mtgprofessor.com.Challenges to the private retirement systemBy JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSOR Q: My neighbor in my condo is a heavy cigarette smoker and it is getting into my unit, making it hard for me to breathe. I have an air puri“er that helps some but is not perfect. What can I do? „ Louise A: Your “rst step in resolving a neighbor dispute is always communication. Speak with your neighbor nicely and ask him or her to help mitigate the problem, perhaps by investing in smokeless ashtrays or by smoking outdoors. If that does not work, you can speak with your condo board. Some condos have rules that allow residents to smoke in certain areas, such as on the balcony. The condo may even be able to make the resident “nd ways to prevent the smoke from bothering neighbors. Weather-stripping or air “ltration installed in the smokers unit may prevent the smoke from escaping and seeping into neighboring units. If your community is not able to help you, you may be able to turn to the legal system. Your city or town may have enacted secondhand-smoke ordinances that might help. If none of those ideas work, you may need to take your neighbor to court. However, this is one of the areas in which even smart attorneys disagree. A secondhand-smoke case can be tough to win, but there is legal precedent. There was a case in Broward County, Florida, in 2005 in which the judge ruled that secondhand smoke was a nuisance and ordered the smoker to stop. I have even seen smaller lawsuits such as one in which a neighbor sued in small-claims court to get their dry-cleaning bills paid because of the smell left on their closet full of clothes. Gary M.

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 Yvonne Jimenez Smith and her husband, Brandon Smith, spoke in whispers recently as they visited a white stucco house they planned to buy on a leafy street in San Jose, Calif. After six months of aggressive hunting, they were on their way to a small suburban home of their own after spending most of their 20s in noisy city centers. It was so quiet, it just seemed weird to speak out loud,Ž Jimenez Smith said. We lived over a freeway entrance in San Francisco. It was always loud and we were always surrounded by people. Its a big change.Ž Like the couple from San Francisco, who are 28 and 30, other millennials are starting to follow in the footsteps of earlier generations and buy suburban houses after fueling a boom in city apartments. The share of 25to 35-yearolds who own homes, which had been falling since 2005 as renting grew in popularity, rose slightly in 2017, according to a Stateline analysis of census microdata from IPUMS-Current Population Survey. Last year 32.3 percent of young people were homeowners, a slight increase from 2016 when it was 32.2 percent. Thats still well below the 45 percent in 2005 and the peak of 55 percent in 1980. Millennials are hitting the market at a difficult time, though, with rising prices and few houses to buy as the housing industry has shifted to building more downtown rentals. Some people seeking to buy houses have been discouraged and have postponed the step, just as many have had to put off moving out of parents houses, forming couples and having children as they tried to build careers delayed by the recession. Between 2011 and 2017, home prices grew 48 percent while income for all age groups rose only 15 percent, according to National Association of Realtors statistics. It just feels irresponsible right now,Ž said Jayme Fraser, a 28-yearold freelance journalist who considered buying a house in Missoula, Montana, three years ago but found prices too high. She and her husband, who is in graduate school, are now looking for a more rural home in Montana they can afford to buy while paying off student debt. Student debt is a big obstacle to buying a home for many millennials, said Jessica Lautz, director of demographics at the National Association of Realtors. The median student debt for millennials is $41,000, and they typically put off buying their first home for seven years after they wanted to buy, Lautz said. Young people with college debt typically spend close to half of their income on loan payments, according to a 2017 study in The Journal of Consumer Affairs. This makes it almost impossible to qualify for a home mortgage with a small down payment. Contrary to popular opinion, millennials are not buying avocado toast instead of saving for a down payment. Theyre paying their student debt,Ž Lautz said. Somebody with $41,000 in student debt is going to be buying something far away with a long commute, or in a bad school district, or something too small. Theyre not going to be able to stay there for long.Ž Thirty-two is the median age for first-time homebuyers, according to a survey by the Realtors Association. That means many firsttime buyers are squarely in the millennial generation, the oldest of whom reached their mid-30s in 2017. The apparent increase in ownership in 2017, the first since 2005, was so tiny that its hard to say if the trend toward less buying and more renting is really over, said Chris Porter, chief demographer for California-based John Burns Real Estate Consulting. Ownership is still considerably lower than 10 years ago,Ž Porter said. We may need another year or two of data to understand whether this is truly a reversal.Ž Some young people who could buy houses are still on the sidelines, like Connor Coyle and his fiancee, Amy Branchini, both in their late 20s. Coyle, who works in wealth management, moved a few years ago from Manhattan to suburban Westchester County, N.Y., where he rents an apartment. Both of us were at the point where we wanted to get out of the city and live a more relaxed lifestyle,Ž Coyle said. The couple is ready to stop renting and own a house, but they just havent seen a house they love in their $500,000 price range. If we end up renting for another three years, thats OK,Ž Coyle said. What youre getting for your money right now, to my mind, is subpar. Maybe in a few more years we can get something in the $600,000 to $700,000 range, and it will make more sense we wont have to put in $100,000 in renovations.Ž In some expensive states such as Hawaii, California and New York, and the District of Columbia, fewer than 1 in 5 millennials is a homeowner, according to the Stateline analysis. But in Iowa, the Dakotas and Minnesota, its close to half. Todays “rst-time buyers are increasingly living in ad hoc situations while they save, Lautz said, citing a survey from the Realtors Association. Twenty-one percent lived with parents, relatives or friends before buying in 2017, up from 12 percent in 1993. Statelines analysis showed that the share of 25to 35-year-olds in ad hoc situations, neither renting nor owning, has grown steadily from 21.2 percent in 2012 to 24.2 percent in 2017. Most in those situations are living with parents or other relatives. A shortage of housing for sale is also driving prices up in some booming areas such as the San Francisco metropolitan area, where Jimenez Smith and her husband work and live. The area has added 189,000 jobs in the past three years but only 14,000 housing units, the largest discrepancy in the nation, said Lawrence Yun, economist for the National Association of Realtors. Other areas facing similar crunches are Boston; Washington; Orlando; Phoenix and Chicago, he said. Even so, 25to 34-year-olds are likely to insist they want to own a home in the futu re, according to the Realtors survey. The San Francisco couple felt the pressure to buy because their rent was rising and they were afraid that the price of a house would soon outstrip their income, even though they already could afford a $4,000 monthly mortgage and had saved about $150,000 for a down payment. Smith is a video graphics programmer for Apple, and Jimenez Smith is a policy aide for the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. But in six months of shopping, they lost bidding wars again and again. Once they bid $350,000 for an empty lot with the facade and rubble of a burneddown home, figuring they could build a new home there for another $250,000. But someone else offered $480,000 for the same lot and is now trying to sell it for even more. The couple feels lucky to have bought a modest two-bedroom house with 1,000 square feet of living space from a seller who turned out to be an acquaintance and helped them by accepting an offer matching the highest bid, not exceeding it. We were going through disclosures and praying it would appraise right,Ž Jimenez Smith said. Fortunately, it did appraise right at $795,000.Ž There were other scares. The couple had been counting on a new transit stop in the neighborhood that would have allowed Smith to commute to San Francisco, a doable but grinding hour and 40 minutes each way. The new stop was delayed, but Smith got his new job at Apple, about a half-hour away in Cupertino. Sometimes we worry that this is the top, that prices will go down, but our bigger worry was what if it goes up?Ž Jimenez Smith said. If it went up to $900,000, wed never be able to buy a house.ŽMillennial buyers face a tough housing marketBy TIM HENDERSONSTATELINE.ORG Advertisement Advertisement DOES YOUR BUSINESS QUALIFY?

Status Address Zip Code City Sq. Ft. Community Price BE FB HB Built Pool Property Style Sold Terms Sold Date SP/SqFt SP/LP RatioGiving your home a little extra oomphŽ doesnt have to cost thousands of dollars. In fact, you can make some dramatic home improvements on a budget of just a few hundred dollars. These “ve projects will make a big impact for less than the cost of a new TV. 1. Revamp your entryway. A stylish entrance makes an instant impression. Begin your entryway revamp with simple, affordable upgrades like a new welcome mat and house numbers. You can also arrange potted plants „ like easy-to-maintain succulents „ around your entrance for an eye-popping aesthetic. Flowering plants, while slightly more dif“cult to maintain, can complement the color scheme of your entrance or act as a standalone focal point. You can also spruce up your homes entrance with a quick color update to your front door. A new shade will complement your entryway dcor and spruce up the overall look of your homes exterior. Chic doorknockers, updated doorknobs and alluring porch lighting are the perfect “nishing touches for your homes entrance. 2. Modernize your bathroom. Major remodels arent the only way to revive your tired bathroom. Start by updating your paint. A new color will open up small spaces, rejuvenate your aesthetic and inspire chic dcor. Next, upgrade your linens. New towels, shower mats and shower curtains can hide dated features and improve the overall feel of your bathroom. Add sconces, towel-hanging ladders and reclaimed crates for extra storage and fashionable functionality. And consider a stylish new mirror to add just the right “nishing touch. 3. Repaint your interior walls. Repainting a room can do wonders to bring it back to life. Lighter colors are perfect for opening up small areas and creating a sense of calm. You can also paint your walls and trim (or other architectural features like mantles and built-in bookcases) in subtly contrasting colors to add depth and interest. Accent walls are perfect for reviving dull spaces „ and they cost less and require less work than painting a whole room. Darker shades are perfect for spaces like studies, home of“ces and dens. 4. Update your cabinet hardware. Installing stylish cabinet hardware is a quick and cost-effective way to update your kitchen. Before you begin your update, its important to consider your kitchens style „ you dont want to mismatch modern pulls and knobs with traditional cabinets. If your kitchen has a contemporary design, go with sleek, understated hardware. Ornate, classically inspired hardware will work best for traditional cabinets. 5. Rejuvenate your light “xtures. Dated light “xtures not only look bad, but they can also make day-to-day activities dif“cult „ ultra-low lighting is great for a romantic night in, but not so much for chopping vegetables. Installing new light “xtures offers the chance to take your dcor to the next level „ and there are thousands of pendant light and chandelier options to suit every taste and budget. Just remember: Do-it-yourself electrical jobs can be dangerous. If youre unsure how to switch out your lighting, its best to hire a professional to do it for you.5 home projects that cost less than a TVBy WILSON WEAVERHOMEADVISOR OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 7

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 23 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 11 Local author Donald P. Robin was tired of writing academic-inspired books and articles. His experiment in “ction writing, has resulted in two books „ the second of which he signed recently during an event at St. Andrews South Golf Club in Punta Gorda. The newest release, titled 2079: A War for Brain Enhancement,Ž was snapped up by dozens of friends and admirers. A resident of Punta Gorda, Robin was accompanied by his wife, Sarah, to greet friends and fans during the evening event. 2079Ž is the second “ctional novel written by Robin, who also has penned “ve academic books, along with numerous academic articles. Robin said that after writing the whole of his academic career, it was nice to branch out to the “ctional genre. The idea of writing a novel was kind of like freeing you up,Ž said Robin. I could use my imagination and creativity to try my hand at writing something other people might like to read.Ž Robins “rst book, Libator,Ž is set in the same science-“ction universe as 2079,Ž with some familiar characters „ though Robin said reading Libator,Ž wasnt a necessary precursor to understanding the happenings of 2079.Ž Scienti“c literature is a large in”uence on Robin. who was a business ethics professor at Wake Forest University prior to retiring. A degree in Mechanical Engineering, a dissertation dealing with Philosophy of Science issues and a profound interest in brain science, plays a large role in Robins writing. Reminiscent of Aldous Huxleys Brave New World ,Ž Robin extrapolates from current scienti“c studies to anticipate future scienti“c developments. The story of 2079Ž continues to detail a secretive and scienti“cally advanced nation in a futuristic Middle East. We are still in diapers with our knowledge about the brain,Ž said Robin. But I think that is going to pick up in the near future, possibly well ahead of the year 2079.Ž Robin said he has no plans on slowing down and is already working on a third book for the series. Im always working on the book,Ž said Robin. Something is always going on in the back of my brain... As long as I have a brain thats still working, Im going to keep going and going.Ž Punta Gorda author pens new novelBY JUSTIN RAFFONESUN INTERN Author Donald P.

Backpacks, pencils and paper are needed for foster children going back to school. Susan Bennett heads the Children of God program, which helps students in foster care from Englewood, Venice, North Port and Charlotte County. Bennett is making donation boxes to collect supplies in time for a back-to-school giveaway shes planning for July. One is already at A Better Scoop Ice Cream Shop, 70 S. Indiana Ave., Englewood. Theres no party or anything big this year, Im just collecting as many backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils everything they need for school to give out to the families on July 28 at West Coast Church in Englewood,Ž she said. We are hoping people will give, so we really can help these 50 kids who will be starting the new school year maybe in a different home with a different family. Buying for older children is more expensive. They need calculators, bigger binders and more supplies. So it gets expensive for foster parents.Ž Foster children are removed by the Department of Children and Families if a parent is abusive, incarcerated, or convicted of drug usage or neglect. Each month DCF workers call Bennett for help with personal items for children. Thats why throughout the year, Bennett collects items for infants and toddlers such as diapers, blankets, formula and clothing, bikes, playpens, car seats, strollers, childrens clothing, supplies, toys and shoes and sneakers. Usually when a child comes into the foster care system with a garbage bag with everything they own in it,Ž Bennett said. Their school supplies are long gone or are in really bad shape. They sometimes dont have the basics either like a toothbrush or a comb and a brush.Ž During the holiday, Bennett also collects donations to help the children have a good Christmas and Easter. Bennett, who is a foster parent, said donations can be dropped off at West Coast Church, 240 Pine St., Englewood. I love helping children,Ž Bennett said. Its such a blessing when foster children can receive the same thing as other children. They really feel better when they have their own school supplies and clothing.Ž For more information, call Bennett at 207-513-8003.Email: eallen@sun-herald.com School supplies needed for foster childrenBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR Color is subjective, which is why you have to know who you and the people living in your home are,Ž designer Sharon Breay said. I try to convince people they are truly beautiful personalities, and they should showcase who they are in the colors they use in their home.Ž In her class The Art of a Beautiful Home 2: Color,Ž Breay explores why and how to use color in decorating homes. The class is 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, Punta Gorda. Participants will learn how to create a desired mood with color, understand the basic color wheel, create color combinations using “ve color formulas, how one color can affect the other colors in a room and how to create focal points with color. An experienced designer, Breay earned her design degree from the University of Michigan, and is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). ASID also recommends her for barrier-free accessible design and homes for the physically challenged. In her “rst career, she was a museum-awarded painter. Color produces psychological effects that are often subliminal and consequently create moods,Ž Breay said. If youre going to create a color scheme for your home, you have to know what youre about.Ž Because color schemes should be personalized to those living in the home, color trends dont work. Color trends are marketing tools that have nothing to do with the homeowners personality, require changing colors every three or four years as trends change, lack individuality and are boring, because they are so common, according to Breay. Well go through each of the colors and describe how they affect us psychologically,Ž Breay said. For example, in the West red signals alarm or excitement or you can create a quieter room with a subdued burgundy or a pastel pink, both of which are in the red family. Blue is calming and is often a favorite, but if youre surrounded by blue all the time it can become depressing.Ž Participants will also learn how to create speci“c color formulas for the entire house that suit their personalities and meet their speci“c needs. Once participants know themselves, identify their activities, know what kinds of moods they want to project, and what kind of sun exposure they have, well introduce the color wheel,Ž Breay said. As they learn the color wheel, well apply colors to one of “ve color formulas to create a harmonious color scheme for their home, a scheme that isnt all the same, but is connected.Ž Colors re”ect and absorb surrounding colors, which is why a certain color sofa looks one way in the store but looks differently in the color scheme at home. So, we must work all the colors together,Ž Breay said. You can also use color to direct the eye away from an eyesore in a room.Ž Using a “ctitious couple, with sample information about the couples home, personalities and lives provided, participants will design a color scheme for the home that re”ects the laboratory couple. Participants should also bring photos or drawings of the areas in their homes they want to improve as theyll get an opportunity to work on those as well.

Page 24 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 12 We all like to hear quotes that inspire us, make us feel good, bring a smile, or make us laugh. There are hundreds of popular quotes about pets, made by famous people that have been passed along. Two very popular quotes that we hear, are, Jonathan Swifts, Every dog must have his day,Ž and, Happiness is a warm puppy,Ž credited to Charles Schultz. Another writer, who obviously traveled a lot, once said, Such short lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home.Ž Former Presidents and world leaders have uttered their share of pet quotes. Woodrow Wilson once said, If your dog will not come to you after looking you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.Ž Harry S. Truman quipped, If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.Ž More recently Barack Obama said, Many shelter dogs are really mutts like me.Ž Charles De Gaulle made his point with, The better I get to know man, the more I “nd myself loving dogs.Ž I am not sure who Winston Churchill was talking with or about when he stated, I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us, cats look down to us, but pigs treat us as equal.Ž Entertainers have chimed in with odd pet quotes. Marilyn Monroe said, Dogs never bite me, just humans.Ž Elizabeth Taylor let it be known that, Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.Ž I am not sure if Richard Burton heard that or not. Ann Landers may have hit the nail on the head with Dont accept your dogs admiration for you as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.Ž A great quote from Rodney Danger“eld was, I looked up my family tree and found three dogs using it.Ž Cats have not been left out when it comes to popular quotes. Sigmund Freud is credited with, Time spent with a cat is never wasted.Ž James Harriott felt that, Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.Ž And, Albert Schweitzer thought, There are two means of refuge, music and cats.Ž Rod McKuen shared, Cats have it all, admiration, endless sleep, and being company only when they want to.Ž Robert Heinlein went out on a limb with, Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.Ž Sad but true is Bruce Camerons sentiment, When we adopt a pet we know it will end with us having to say goodbye, someday. We do it anyway because they bring us so much joy, optimism and happiness. Their love affects us every moment of the day.Ž In 1885, the speech Tribute to a Dog,Ž was presented as testimony by U.S. Sen. George West, then a young attorney in Missouri, representing a man who was suing another man for killing his dog. In part the quote goes, The one absolutely unsel“sh friend that man can have in this sel“sh world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.Ž My all-time favorite was part of an epitaph on a tombstone. It reads, Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who possessed beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity and all the virtues of man without his vices. This praise, which would be unmeaning ”attery if inscribed over human ashes, is but a just tribute to the memory of Boatswain, a Newfoundland dog.Ž Dated 1808. Phil Snyder is the executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society. He has more than 40 years of experience in animal care, control and welfare, including 15 years with the Humane Society of the United States.

The Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County offered 50 percent off adoption fees at the Summer Lovin event on Saturday. DNA microchipping and gift shop items were also on sale to promote pet safety and comfort. For $10, new pet parents could even get a family portrait taken. Were just trying to adopt as many out as possible, were hoping this attracts more people,Ž said AWL Development Manager Patty Cook. Throughout the day, prospective pet owners got the chance to meet and fall in love with all of the 77 adoptable animals at the AWL. Dogs and cats alike were eager for adoption „ as was Benny the pig „ and the discounted price was intended to help place them in good homes. We want them to have a family and a nice life. This way, they can “nd their forever homes,Ž said Cook. We treat them well here but they dont want to stay, they want forever families.Ž Cook predicted a lot of people would come out for the event after ensuring it was well-publicized across social media platforms and the local news. Summer Lovin is one of the AWLs largest adopt-a-thons of the year, according to Acting Director Aggie Augila. Facebook is a really good tool,Ž said Marco De Assis, AWLs Media Manager. Usually, pets that are posted on there get adopted within a month. It also helps us get the word out about events like this.Ž Earlier in the week, one of the shelters two pigs, Hubert, was adopted. They are hoping to “nd more good homes for Benny and their other animals through the event. Weve only been open for 20 minutes and weve already had one adoption, so I think thats a good sign,Ž Cook said. Throughout the morning, the small shelter lobby was packed with young families, retirees, everyone looking for a special addition to their homes. Were hoping to “nd that perfect kitten,Ž said Sean McLaughlin as his children, Lolie and Evan, played with the young cats. Many families already had pets and wanted to get them a new friend. My cat has a lot of medical issues and we need a playmate for him,Ž said Samantha Ferguson, rocking one of the small kittens in her arms. I really like how friendly and playful they are. And cuddly.Ž To make sure the pets go to good homes, the AWL asks potential parents to meet certain requirements. According to their website, www.awlshelter. org, those looking to adopt must own their own home or have explicit permission from their landlord, let the animal meet any other pets they have and be over 18, among other policies. If you missed the Summer Lovin event but are still interested in adopting from the AWL, the shelter is open daily and adoptions run until 3:30 p.m. Email: kgleason@sun-herald.comDog days of summer: AWL holds discount adoption eventBy KAYLA GLEASONSTAFF WRITER KITTEN SHOWERA Kitten ShowerŽ will be held on Saturday, July 21 to welcome incoming cats.

Each Fourth of July, thousands of people are injured from using consumer “reworks. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 9,000 “reworks-related injuries happen each year. Of these, nearly half are headrelated injuries with nearly 30 percent of these injuries to the eyes. One-fourth of “reworks eye injuries result in permanent vision loss or blindness. The EyeSmart campaign the American Academy of Ophthalmology wants to remind consumers to leave “reworks to professionals. Children are the most common victims of “rework accidents, with those 15-years-old or younger accounting for half of all “reworks eye injuries in the U.S. For children under the age of “ve, seemingly innocent sparklers account for onethird of all “reworks injuries. Sparklers can burn at nearly 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hot enough to cause a third-degree burn. Abrupt trauma to the eye from bottle rockets causes the most serious injuries. These include eye lid lacerations, corneal abrasions, traumatic cataract, retinal detachment, optic nerve damage, rupture of the eyeball, eye muscle damage and complete blindness. The American Academy of Ophthalmology urges observance of the following tips: € Never let children play with “reworks of any type. € View “reworks from a safe distance of at least 500 feet away. € Respect safety barriers set up to allow pyrotechnicians to do their jobs safely. € Leave the lighting of “reworks to trained professionals. € If you “nd unexploded “reworks remains, do not touch them. € If you get an eye injury from “reworks, seek medical help immediately. In the event of an accident, minimize the damage to the eye by following these six steps which can save a childs sight: € Do not rub the eye. Rubbing the eye may increase bleeding or make the injury worse. € Do not attempt to rinse out the eye. This can be even more damaging than rubbing. € Do not apply pressure to the eye itself. Holding or taping a foam cup or the bottom of a juice carton to the eye are just two tips. Protecting the eye from further contact with any item, including a childs hand, is the goal.Fireworks safetyProvided by NEIL B.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, heat is the leading weather-related killer in the United States, with the National Vital Statistics System reporting a total of more than 7,400 deaths between 1999 and 2010. Many of those deaths could have been prevented had people taken steps to keep cool in the face of summer heat. € Choose wisely when spending time outdoors. As hot as summer can be, many people still want to enjoy some time outdoors. You dont have to spend summer indoors to survive the summer heat, but it helps to choose the time you spend outdoors wisely. Avoid spending time outdoors between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Temperatures soar Keep cool in the summer heat PROVIDED BY MCC HEAT | 2 PHOTO PROVIDEDAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency, heat is the leading weather-related killer in the United States. DanMEARNSCOLUMNIST Health & HopeContinuing last weeks column on hearing loss, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of Charlotte County Executive Director Kim Gaut said there are 35,000 to 40,000 people with some form of hearing loss in Charlotte County. Nationwide, the number is 48 million, including one million in Florida. These numbers are from 2010, so there has to have been an increase,Ž said Gaut. Hearing loss is serious business. It has been shown to cause dementia and Alzheimers.Ž Hearing loss may result from genetics, birth complications, ageing, illness (high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney problems), trauma and medication (such as certain antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs). The leading cause by far is noise-induced hearing loss, and the most vulnerable are young people. Two out of 10 children from age four to 19 have hearing loss,Ž Gaut said. Some are born that way, but most suffer noise-induced hearing loss from ear buds and headphones. Theyre going to be needing our services very soon.Ž In March, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that 1.1 billion people between 12 and 35 years of age are at risk of hearing loss due to exposure to noise in recreational settings.Ž The WHO cited personal audio devices, such as smartphones and iPods, and damaging levels of sound at concerts and music festivals, where noise levels can top 120 decibels for hours. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), repeated exposure to sound over 85 decibels can cause hearing loss. Permanent damage can happen in minutes,Ž said the NIH, and when the damage is done, Self-inflicted hearing loss can be avoidedDAN | 8Picnics can be a lot of fun. But improper handling of the food can mean trouble in the form of foodborne germs. Before you fill your cooler, review these tips for safer picnics. Picnic tip No. 1: When you open the cooler, keep an eye on the clock. The general rule is to have food out only two hours,Ž said Kate Zeratsky, a Mayo Clinic registered dietitian nutritionist. However, on a hot day „ 90 degrees Fahrneheit and above „ you want to limit the time that food is out in that hot weather to one hour.Ž She added, You might even consider a bowl of ice. And, then, sit your food container in that ice. That can help maintain a cool temperature.Ž Picnic tip No. 2: Pay special attention to proteins. Bacteria like protein,Ž said Zeratsky. So keep meat cold until it hits the grill. Then, use a meat thermometer to make sure its cooked to a safe temperature. At least 160 degrees degrees Fahrneheit for ground meats and 165 degrees Fahrneheit for poultry. Picnic tip No. 3: Shield your sweets, including the ones from Mother Nature. Fruit, with its natural sugars, is going to attract some bugs,Ž said Zeratsky. So you might want to keep it covered.Ž And picnic tip No. 4: Better to be safe than sorry. When in doubt, throw it out. You dont want anyone to get sick.ŽSafety tips for a holiday picnicFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK PHOTO PROVIDEDPicnics can be a lot of fun.

But Boniface said drowning usually doesnt look how people expect it to. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on average, more than 10 people die from drowning each day, mostly children. But there isnt usually the splashing and screaming you see in movies. In most cases, you dont see a struggle,Ž Boniface said. You just see somebody under the water or ”oating face down.Ž But, in some cases, there is a window of a few seconds where you might notice some signs. Drowning people wont wave their arms because their arms instinctively push down to try and get their heads above water. And a drowning person is unable to make any sound, so if a child is noticeably quiet, thats a red ”ag. Boniface says the most important thing you can do is take steps to prevent a drowning. That means limiting alcohol, fencing off a pool and keeping an eye on kids in the water. This involves close, constant adult supervision „ somebody watching the water at all times,Ž Boniface said.

Recipients of these letters are likely eligible for Extra Help, a lowincome subsidy program for Medicare Part D prescription benefits, or other Medicare Savings Programs. The Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida (AAASWFL) wants to reassure seniors that these letters from the Social Security Administration are legitimate. Recipients are encouraged to contact the SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program to determine if they are eligible and receive application assistance. SHINE Medicare counselors provide free, unbiased, and personalized assistance with Medicare, Medicaid, prescription drug plans, and long-term care insurance. Offered locally through the Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida, SHINE empowers seniors, their caregivers, and family members to make informed decisions about health care coverage. SHINE is a volunteer program of the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and part of the national SHIP Program. About 12 million people nationwide use one of these programs to help cover the costs of medications, copays, deductibles, and Medicare premiums,Ž explained Camilita Aldridge, SHINE Liaison with AAASWFL. About 2,300 people in Charlotte and DeSoto Counties will receive these letters. If you found one of these letters in your mailbox, SHINE may be able to help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on your health care. With healthcare costs continuing to rise, these programs can be a lifeline for older adults with limited incomes.Ž AAASWFL provides SHINE counseling services at locations across Southwest Florida.

SHINE can help seniors apply for cost savings programsProvided by KIRSTEN ODONNELLAREA AGENCY ON AGING FOR SOUTHWEST FLORIDA A result of our contemporary lifestyle is the inability to “nd the time and motivation to participate in bene“cial physical activities. This, in turn, has led to a decrease in the level of “tness (and state of health) of many. Improving “tness and health is not an easy task. Allowing ones level of “tness and state of health to decrease to a point where disease and illness are prevalent is never a good thing. Of all the components essential to “tness and good health, exercise appears to be the most signi“cant. Through regular exercise, many of the illnesses threatening good health and longevity can be avoided. Furthermore, conditions such as obesity, abdominal distention (a condition that, quite often, results into what we commonly refer to as a pot belly), osteoporosis and many other illnesses would not be as prevalent as they are today. In the old daysŽ when we walked to school and work, used our physical body to perform our daily labor and involved ourselves in the games and “tness activities of the time, it was less dif“cult to maintain favorable degrees of “tness and health. Today, the situation has changed. It would appear that more people are now driving to work, to school, to the supermarket and even to the neighborhood bread shop. In addition, the work done by contemporary folks are performed indoors while standing or sitting and, in many cases, through the use of some automated or computerized machine. As dif“cult as it might be, it is important that time (and motivation) be found to reclaim and/or maintain desirable levels of “tness and good health. The following tips are presented to help you “nd the time to exercise. € Join a health club or “tness center. The atmosphere and other members will, quite often, offer needed motivation. € Consider your available time and establish (put it on paper) an exercise schedule. € Plan to exercise at different times of the day. You may wish to do some exercise in the morning, a little before and/or after lunch and a “nal session at some point in the evening. € Do some simple exercises while at your desk or at different points during the performance of your work. Fusion One is an exercise program that offers a vast number of exercises you can do while sitting. € When creating your exercise schedule, plan activities for the weekend.

Mosquitoes are pesky parasites leaving bite marks that can be unbearable to itch. So whats the best way to stop yourself from scratching? Jason Howland has the answer from a Mayo Clinic expert in this Mayo Clinic Minute. There are millions of mosquitoes swarming this summer, sucking blood and leaving itchy, red bumps on the skin. Their saliva deposits in the skin from where the bite is, and its causing a reaction to that saliva,Ž said Dr. Summer Allen, a Mayo Clinic family physician. Allen says some of the tried-and-true home remedies for treating mosquito bites work well. Calamine lotion, over-thecounter hydrocortisone cream and even a cold compress can ease the itch. Its going to sooth and kind of calm down that intense burning and in”ammation that theyre feeling in their skin,Ž said Allen. And, while its not always easy, its important to keep the itching to a minimum. If they scratch it hard enough, or depending on what they use to scratch their skin, they can cause a break in their skin,Ž said Allen. They can develop a bacterial infection.Ž Although using insect repellent and other prevention tips can reduce your chances of being bit, really, getting at least one skeeter bite this summer is almost inevitable. Time takes care of it, and try to do your best not to scratch it if you can,Ž said Allen.Easing the itch of mosquito bitesFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORKPHOTO PROVIDED BY UF/IFASFemale Aedes aegypti mosquito and peak during these hours, and the American Melanoma Foundation notes that UV radiation reaches its peak intensity at approximately 1 p.m. The more intense that UV radiation is, the more susceptible people are to UV-related sun damage to their skin. If you prefer to exercise outdoors during the summer, do so in the early morning or in the evening, when temperatures tend to be lower and UV radiation is less of a threat. € Limit time spent outside. Its OK to spend time outside in the summer, just make sure you are not outside for extended periods of time on hot days. Exposure to sustained heat can adversely affect the bodys ability to sweat. Sweat might be uncomfortable, but it helps to regulate body temperature by cooling the body. People who cannot sweat or suddenly stop perspiring can succumb to heat exhaustion or heat stroke very quickly. If you must spend time outdoors on hot days, take periodic breaks to go indoors, heading inside immediately if you realize your body is no longer producing sweat. € Stay hydrated. Come the dog days of summer, keep a water bottle with you at all times, re“lling it throughout the day as necessary. The American Heart Association notes that the heart can more easily pump blood thr ough blood vessels to the muscles when it is hydrated. That means the heart isnt working as hard as it would have to if you were not staying hydrated. Dehydration reduces the bodys ability to sweat and maintain a normal body temperature, so stay hydrated on hot days by drinking water throughout the day. € Make cool dietary choices. When planning meals on hot days, choose light foods and opt for small portions so you arent “ghting feelings of sluggishness that can compound any heat-related feelings of listlessness youre already coping with. In addition, choose meals that dont require you to turn on the oven. Hot ovens can make homes, even those with fully functioning air conditioning systems, far less comfortable on especially hot days. The dog days of summer are often marked by humidity and blazing sun. Overcoming those factors may require altering certain habits.HEATFROM PAGE 1 FEELING FIT 2Caregivers support groupPort Charlotte United Methodist Church, 21075 Quesada Ave., Port Charlotte, hosts a caregiver support group from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. every Wednesday.

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 29 Adults in their 40s are getting diagnosed with Stage 3 or Stage 4 liver cirrhosis, even though they have never consumed alcohol to excess and have never felt any symptoms of the disease. Whats going on? Liver specialists say theres a form of hepatitis that is sneaking up on about 12 percent of the U.S. population, an estimated 25 million Americans, and they want to urge primary care providers to send patients for testing earlier in the game. Called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH for short, it does not result from drug use, alcoholism, sexual contact, water contaminants or viruses. Rather this particular liver condition occurs when too much fat is stored in liver cells. What were trying to do is bring that awareness to bear,Ž said Dr. Stephen Harrison, a liver specialist who has been working nationally to get out the word on the disease. Were saying, Listen, this is a chronic disease. Thirty percent of the population has nonalcoholic fatty liver, and 25 percent of that population is at risk for the form of fatty liver called NASH that can progress to cirrhosis, end-stage liver disease and liver cancer. Thats the group we need to be getting after, but we cant even begin to work them up if they dont come in for an evaluation.Ž NASH tends to occur more often among people at high risk of heart disease because of Type 2 diabetes and obesity, and in the United States, a disproportionately high number of Latinos are being diagnosed with the disease. When we talk about any chronic liver disease, its important that people are able to recognize if it exists in themselves or if theyre at risk for it,Ž Harrison said. The problem with NASH is that its an asymptomatic, silent disease.Ž If you get a headache, you feel the pain and you can do something about it, but patients with NASH typically dont get that kind of warning, said Dr. Souvik Sarkar, a liver specialist at UC Davis Health in Sacramento. In addition, he said, there is no test in the primary care providers arsenal that can diagnose NASH. Esparto resident Kimberly Pearson, 45, said her liver disease had progressed to the third of four stages by the time she was diagnosed with NASH. She said Sarkar was trying to explain how serious the illness was, Pearson said, but her brain wasnt processing it. She had never heard of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. He was trying to get me to realize that this was very serious, but it didnt really hit home until I went on Dr. Google to “gure out what it could lead to cancer or liver failure,Ž Pearson said. Sarkar and Harrison said that primary care providers must be on the lookout for a combination of risk factors that warrant sending patients to a specialist for a noninvasive liver ultrasound known as a FibroScan. Those risk factors are: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a diagnosis of diabetes or a family history of diabetes, a body-mass index of 30 or higher, a fatty liver or a family history of liver disease. Sarkar said that, eight years before Pearson was sent to his of“ce for a FibroScan and ultimately a liver biopsy, her lab work had shown she had nonalcoholic fatty liver and she had been diagnosed with diabetes. Its important, he said, for primary care physicians to screen for NASH early. By educating doctors and patients, we hope to get patients diagnosed in earlier stages of the disease and not in later stages when they need liver transplantation,Ž said Harrison, who practices in San Antonio, Texas. If we can do that, then the patient can somewhat manage the disease by changing their lifestyle, adopting a healthier diet and exercising.Ž Harrison has been a leading voice in the NASH education program being rolled out globally. In fact, June 12 is the “rst-ever International NASH Day with events and information-sharing planned worldwide in street events and online at www.thenash-education-program. Harrison said the initiative is aimed at educating both patients and the health care community. Sarkar said a patient doesnt have to show all the risk factors to receive a NASH diagnosis. He said hes seen one NASH patient with a BMI of 24, but the patient had high cholesterol and a fatty liver. Genetics can play a strong factor in whether someone develops NASH, Sarkar said, rather than the degree of obesity. With many NASH patients, Sarkar said, the secret to beating the disease is weight loss, but for a patient with a BMI of 24, he said, doctors have to treat NASH by getting the cholesterol under control with medication. So, what is “brosis and cirrhosis of the liver? Harrison explained: Say tonight you have a big party. You go out in Sacramento, and you blow it out. You drink way more than you should. Your liver is not going to be happy tomorrow morning, but if you dont drink any more, very quickly, your liver will lay down a scab. It will lay down collagen and “brose that will allow new hepatocytes to grow. When they grow and regenerate, the liver then comes in and reabsorbs that scar tissue. A nd, you heal, and the liver looks brand-new. But heres the problem with NASH: The fat in the liver is toxic to the liver. Its called lipotoxicity, and that is always there. Its there for decades. The liver never has a chance to heal, so it is constantly laying down more scab. Over 10 to 20 years, that scab develops so much that we call it cirrhosis, and its at that point that we cant do much for you.Ž Its then that patients require a liver transplant in order to survive, he and Sarkar said, and a liver transplant can take years of waiting behind thousands of people in line ahead of you.

BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTES patients can control or beat NASH by losing weight, Sarkar and Harrison say they have seen patients struggle to do so. Sarkar said hes treated about 100 patients for NASH, and only two have been able to lose weight and keep it off. The doctors said it takes tremendous behavioral change. Harrison said he tries to keep his weight loss advice simple for patients: Do not eat bread, tortillas, rice or potatoes. When he tells patients that, however, they immediately start bargaining: Does that include sweet potatoes? Is brown bread OK? What about injera, the Ethiopian bread? Dont bargain, Harrison said. Give up anything under the letters b-re-a-d, he said, and any food that “ts in the other categories. He said he suggests his patients sequester themselves for seven to 10 days until they get in the habit. Once they do that, he said, theyll feel better and the weight starts coming off and theyre better able to handle temptations. At the same time, he said, start working out at the gym. Start with 10 minutes if thats all you can manage, Harrison said, and try to move that up to 20 minutes the next week. Youll “nd you can go a long time without being that hungry,Ž he said. Your portion size drops. Your total caloric count drops and it augments the weight loss youre having, and then youre at the gym, and that augments it even more. Very quickly, fat ”uxes in and out of the liver in a heartbeat. The liver wants to regenerate. It wants to heal itself just like the skin does.Ž Sarkar acknowledged that it can be as dif“cult for some people to give up certain foods as it is for an addict to quit drugs. Thats why hes pleased that UC Davis Health offers its patients two different programs to help encourage behavioral changes around food. Theres the Living Light Living Well Adult Weight Management and Lifestyle program, a yearlong plan with regular weight check-ins, education around food and exercise, and tools to help participants reach their goals. The other program, LifeSteps Weight Management, teaches participants over 12 weeks to take gradual steps toward changing their eating and physical activity. Other health providers may have similar programs. Pearson said that weight management has not come easy for her, but shes kept at it. Shes up by 4 oclock “ve days a week to go on morning walks before work with two of her friends. Once she gets to work, she said, she and two co-workers head to workout classes several days a week. The support of friends, she said, has played a critical role in her effort to get a healthier liver. One of the biggest challenges, she said, is getting people to understand just how vital it is to adhere to a strict diet and exercise. You look “ne, and you arent exhibiting symptoms, and people think: Its just one piece of cake. Whats the harm? Harrison said that one slice of cake or bread, that one tortilla, those potatoes and rice produce a reaction in the bodies of those with NASH that is just as serious as a food allergy. Those four carbs, the liver is allergic to them,Ž he said. Its like, if youre allergic to peanuts, they will kill you. Your livers allergic to those carbs.

Page 32 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 Sea Dragon Aquatics hosted a Swim-aThon fundraiser at the Port Charlotte High School Pirates pool. Swimmers asked family members, friends, neighbors or businesses to pledge a certain amount per length or to make a ”at donation in support of the new swim team. Swimmers were encouraged to swim 200 laps each, within a 2-hour timeframe. Participants earned Swim-a-Thon Deck Pass Patches, participation and incentive awards, including bag tags, swim caps, water bottles, T-shirts, hoodies, towels, duffel bags, and backpacks. Money raised during the event will directly bene“t Sea Dragons Aquatics, with “ve percent of the gross proceeds from the event going to the USA Swimming Foundation. The Foundation supports their national team, coaches clinics, conferences, as well as providing free or low-cost swim lessons to children across the country and so much more. The coed team consists of 40 kids ages 5 to 18, with Port Charlotte High Schools pool being their hub.

Experts say the best way to protect young ears is to apply the 60/60Ž rule: Keep the volume on the MP3 player under 60 percent and only listen for a maximum of 60 minutes a day. Parents may use Apples parental control settings to lock in lower sound levels on iPhones and iPods. Another major concern Gaut discussed involves compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, which requires businesses to provide reasonable accommodationsŽ to enable people with disabilities to enjoy equal opportunities. In the case of deafness, reasonable accommodations include telecommunication devices for the deaf (TTYs), amplified telephones, visual alarms, assistive listening systems, visible accommodations to communicate audible alarms and messages, and, for those who rely on sign language, providing qualified sign language interpreter services. A lot of businesses in Charlotte County refuse to provide accommodations, even when a hard of hearing person requests it,Ž said Gaut. Businesses dont know or understand their responsibilities under the law. The ADA tells them what they need to know.Ž Before any legal action to take place, those who believe they are being discriminated against because of their disability must make authorities aware of the situation. They often inform Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services first. Every time we hear a grievance, if nots not resolved in a reasonable of time, we file a complaint with the DOJ (Department of Justice),Ž said Gaut. And we always encourage a deaf person to see a lawyer and sue. Theres no legal standing for people who will not provide accommodations,Ž she added. They lose every time.Ž In May, the Florida Association of the Deaf sent an open letter to the City of Tampa complaining that a televised announcement from the mayor concerning the approaching Hurricane Alberto left the deaf in the dark.Ž There was an interpreter on hand using American Sign Language to interpret the mayors remarks, but the camera focused on a close up of the mayors face. The (television) stations in Fort Myers are very good, very ADA compliant,Ž said Gaut. But there was a lawsuit against them after Hurricane Charley for not providing appropriated captioning. Now they do and they do a very good job.Ž Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services provides free counseling, education, equipment, sign language and communication classes, and other services to individuals suffering various degrees of deafness. It relies solely on fundraisers and donations only source of income and receives no state or federal funding. We lost county funds and United Way funding,Ž Gaut said, but did receive a grant from the Charlotte Community Foundation for equipment and certain programs.Ž Lack of funding cost Gaut her only paid employee, Ellen Sapaugh, who stayed on to become a great volunteer.Ž If youd like to help, get more information, or make an appointment, call 941-743-8347, which is a voice, fax and TTY (Text Telephone) line.

CHICAGO „ Since graduating from college last month, Gabriel Villagomez has been polishing his resume, updating his LinkedIn pro“le and worrying. Sure, the job market looks promising for new grads. And Villagomez, who plans to apply to medical school, just needs a job to hold him over for a year or so. But with student loan bills looming, Villagomez can sense how the need for a paycheck any paycheck could suck him into a job that doesnt take advantage of his education. He has seen cousins and friends abandon ambitions and fall into the rut of lowwage work when life gets in the way. Im worried about not following through on my plans,Ž said Villagomez, 27, who spent “ve years in the Marine Corps before enrolling at University of Illinois at Chicago, where he majored in economics and minored in biology. Sometimes its easier to get stuck in these other “elds.Ž While the nations sunny jobs reports show low unemployment and growing payrolls, the jobs available arent necessarily good ones, and many new college graduates “nd themselves settling for less than what they bargained for. Nearly 43 percent of recent college graduates are underemployed that is, working in jobs that dont require a college degree, according to March numbers from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. While making lattes or staf“ng a cash register is often considered a youthful rite of passage during that bumpy transition from campus to the workforce, new research suggests that settling for a subpar job out of the gate can harm career prospects for years to come. Two-thirds of new grads who were underemployed in their “rst job out of college were still underemployed “ve years later, while only 13 percent of new grads who landed collegelevel jobs right away were underemployed “ve years in, according a study released last month by Burning Glass Technologies, a labor market analytics company, and the nonpro“t Strada Institute for the Future of Work. The cycle gets harder to escape as time goes on. Three-quarters of those who were underemployed “ve years after college continued to be so at the 10-year mark, according to the report. The skills and professional connections gained in the “rst job help lead to the next and then the next, and those who missed the early boat have a hard time catching up. Their earnings fall behind. Recent college graduates who are underemployed earn, on average, $10,000 less per year than their counterparts doing college-level work, the report found. Women are disproportionately affected. Forty-seven percent of women were underemployed in their “rst post-college job, versus 37 percent of men, the report found. The researchers didnt examine the reasons for the gender divide, but it could be linked to the growing speci“city of job descriptions, as research has shown that women are less likely than men to apply for a job if they dont believe they meet all of the listed requirements, said Burning Glass CEO Matt Sigelman. That “rst job is so critical because so many who do start out behind stay behind, and the “nancial implications are substantial as well,Ž said Michelle Weise, chief innovation of“cer for the Strada Institute. The research was based on 4 million resumes of people who graduated after 2000, and, to account for rising employer standards, it de“ned college-level jobs as those for which more than half of current job postings require a college degree. In decades past, wandering aimlessly for a while after college was an accepted part of the transition to adulthood. Todays new grads face a very different labor landscape that favors the focused, the researchers said. For one, ballooning student debt approaching $1.5 trillion nationally, with Illinois graduates on average facing nearly $30,000 each makes it unwise to cut short earning potential. In addition, employers no longer expect new hires to stay with the same company for the long haul, so many dont invest in entry-level training, yet they also have high expectations that people come in with a speci“c skill set, Sigelman said. Meanwhile, the population of college graduates has risen markedly more than a third of people over 25 now have at least a bachelors degree, compared to about a “fth 20 years ago which has made it harder to stand out and has allowed employers to make college a prerequisite for jobs that traditionally didnt require it.

Page 34 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 peers still recovering from the misfortune of graduating during the Great Recession. As a result, Sigelman said, college students cant wait until the second semester of their senior year to visit the career services of“ce, and should start thinking strategically about career paths closer to freshman year. Its incumbent on students to have a plan,Ž he said. Not all underemployment is created equal. In a study published last year, sociologist Kody Steffy, director of student research at Indiana University, conducted in-depth interviews with three dozen underemployed college graduates from a large Midwestern university, and found a stark class divide between those who were in that position intentionally versus not. The voluntarily underemployed tended to come from families with money, and many did not consider the decision to be a temporary exploratory detour but, rather, a permanent path. They spoke of rejecting capitalism or prioritizing other facets of life besides career ambition, or they had found meaningful work that simply didnt require a college degree, Steffy said. More worrisome were the new grads in his study who were involuntarily underemployed. They tended to come from working-class backgrounds and often were the “rst in their families to go to college, which can make it harder to secure that “rst postcollege job because they lack family friends who can put a good word in at a desired employer. Those grads felt highly stressed about not “nding work commensurate with their education, which their families had believed would be the ticket to upward mobility, and several cried during their interviews, Steffy said. The distinction is important, he said, to properly frame the problem and direct resources to the people who need it most. I think theres both a positive story here and a disturbing story,Ž Steffy said. Its great that there is a set of college graduates thinking very seriously about what the good life is and not just following the path of least resistance, but that same sort of exploration isnt available for our “rst-generation college graduates.Ž Villagomez, who lives with two roommates in Humboldt Park, is the “rst in his family to go to college, and he feels anxious as he contemplates his next step. He was born in Chicago but raised in Mexico, where he spent long days juggling school and helping run the familys produce store. When he realized his family wouldnt be able to afford to send him to college, he saved enough money for a bus ticket and, at 16, returned to Chicago to live with relatives and aspire for more. As he studies for the MCAT, Villagomez is working in a paid internship with a real estate broker and consultant, to see if thats another path to pursue. But the $13-an-hour wage wont be enough to make ends meet when student loans start to come due in a few months, he said. He applied for a few jobs through his fraternitys alumni network, but is concerned employers wont want to hire a short-timer intending to return to school. As “nancial pressures mount, he worries more immediate options could lead him to abandon his expensive medical school goal altogether. I think Id do either driving or private security, and thats where Id be stuck,Ž said Villagomez, who quali“es for numerous military veterans employment programs, including some that would help him get a commercial drivers license. Jaime Velasquez, associate director for employer relations at UIC Career Services, said now is not the time to settle for a subpar job, as opportunities are plentiful and new grads should strike while the iron is hot. The schools March job fair drew 156 employers trying to “ll more than 2,600 open positions, a return to pre-recession levels. Hiring outcomes have been good for new grads, said Velasquez, who advises students to do extensive research on the companies they are interested in so that their enthusiasm and preparation sets them apart in interviews. But, he said, I worry about the students who have never been to our of“ce.Ž National Louis University, located in the Loop, has initiatives to ensure students start exploring career options early. Starting this fall, all new undergraduates will have to complete an internship, or comparable faculty-led capstone project, in order to graduate, said Smret Smith, executive director of the schools career services of“ce. A key tool in helping students build their professional resumes has been microinternships,Ž she said. Those are paid projects that companies hire students to do, typically remotely, allowing students to try out different kinds of work while employers test them out as potential hires without making a big upfront investment. Jeffrey Moss, CEO of Parker Dewey, a Chicagobased company that connects students and recent graduates with microinternships, said the projects get students on the radar of employers who otherwise might not consider them. The projects also help students “gure out what they like to do, reducing the risk that they will become job hoppers after graduation, Moss said. The projects, which typically take one to three weeks, involve professional-level work, such as drafting a white paper or doing a competitive analysis, he said. We have a ton of students on our platform who are graduated and underemployed, and this helps them get out of it,Ž Moss said. A risk of underemployment is that it could discourage students from seeking a four-year degree. But most good-paying jobs do require college, so a better solution is for colleges to improve their career planning offerings, said David Attis, managing director of strategic research at EAB, an education consulting “rm based in Washington, D.C. For example, he said, Queens University in Ontario has created a major mapŽ that that outlines the courses to take, the clubs to join, the internships and study abroad opportunities to pursue, and students sit down in their “rst or second year to look at the occupations that could be relevant. Students who are drawn to majors that have poor employment outcomes should also be encouraged to develop skills that the job market values, according to the Burning Glass report. The “rms research has shown that liberal arts students, more than half of whom are underemployed in their “rst jobs, can signi“cantly boost their employment and earnings prospects by acquiring additional skills, such as data analysis, graphic design and social media. The world needs more liberal arts majors, not fewer,Ž Burning Glass Sigelman said, but their success depends upon their ability to complement their traditional program with the last-mile skills that drive employability.Ž To avoid, or escape, the underemployment trap, new grads struggling to “nd a good job should try to be underemployed in a “eld where there is a room to move up into college-level positions, Stradas Weise said. Recent graduates who take jobs as help desk technicians or community health workers, which dont require college degrees, are more likely to get back on track than those who wait tables, the report said. Corey Hardiman, 27, lucked into such a situation. Hardiman said he was frustrated initially when his “rst full-time job out of college was as a teaching assistant at his own elementary school in Chicagos Roseland neighborhood, working with third-graders. The political science major, newly graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta, had recently dropped out of the race for 9th ward alder man, and never imagined working in a classroom. I thought I had failed myself,Ž he said. A Gates Millennium Scholar, Hardiman did not to have any student debt pressuring him to take a job he didnt want. But he wasnt sure what path to take, so he accepted the offer from his old elementary school principal. Hardiman discovered it was deeply ful“lling, and soon got a job as a college and career counselor in Englewood. Last year he became a reengagement specialist for Chicago P ublic Schools, where he is tasked with “nding and motivating 150 truants across 15 high schools, and he plans to continue working in education. The experience taught Hardiman the importance of cultivating relationships, and of a good steppingstone. When people know you, job opportunities will come,Ž he said.CAREERFROM PAGE 1Q: Despite having a stellar employment record, I am concerned about two incidents mentioned during my recent performance review. Both involved accusations which were completely unfair. Several months ago, our human resources manager told me that I was suspected of harassing another employee. She refused to reveal the nature of the offense or the persons name, but said there would be an investigation. This didnt worry me because I have never harassed anyone. After that discussion, I was never contacted again. However, during my review, my manager indicated that HR had informed him about this allegation. He gave me a lecture about proper workplace conduct even though I had done nothing wrong. The second problem occurred when another group requested my help with a project. Because they were being billed for my time, they initially planned to use me for only 20 hours. After I discovered some major ”aws, however, the project manager said to take all the time I needed. During my review, I was told that he had complained about the extra charges. Although these events didnt lower my performance rating, Im afraid they may have harmed my reputation with my manager. How can I avoid such problems in the future? A: Never surprise your bossŽ is an old saying which provides excellent advice. This adage simply means that you should always give your manager a heads-up about problematic or disturbing developments. Advance notice not only keeps the boss from being blindsided, but also allows you to control how negative news is delivered. In both these situations, you neglected to share important information with your manager. As a result, you missed the opportunity to provide your version of events before others offered theirs. Because peoples perceptions are usually shaped by the “rst account they hear, you automatically placed yourself at a disadvantage. Like many employees, you also overlooked the fact that managers do talk to each other. By anticipating that the HR representative and project leader might convey their concerns, you could probably have avoided these unpleasant surprises. Q: Although I have worked in business for many years, I would like to become an academic advisor at the university level. As an undergraduate, I enjoyed tutoring people, and I have also done volunteer work with high school students. How should I go about starting this new career? A: Because radical transitions seldom happen overnight, such a dramatic change requires a stepping stoneŽ approach. Just as you might plot your steps to safely cross a river, so you must identify a logical sequence of events to shift from one career to another. For example, one initial strategy involves using current skills to obtain a position in the desired setting. So if your background is in accounting, you might look for a position in a university finance department. By successfully transitioning to the academic world, you would have moved one step closer to your goal. But before making any permanent changes, take time to thoroughly understand your preferred “eld. Explore educational requirements, research possible employers, and conduct informational interviews with academic advisors. Before crossing this river, you need to be sure that youll be happier on the other side.Your Office Coach: Never surprise your bossBy MARIE G.

The News Wire Sunday, July 1, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER California zoo vets raising neglected baby red pandaSee page 3 WASHINGTON „ They wore white. They shook their “sts in the air. They carried signs reading: No more children in cages,Ž and Whats next? Concentration Camps?Ž In major cities and tiny towns, hundreds of thousands of marchers gathered Saturday across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, in the latest act of mass resistance against President Donald Trumps immigration policies. Protesters ”ooded more than 700 marches, from immigrant-friendly cities like New York and Los Angeles to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming. They gathered on the front lawn of a Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, near a detention center where migrant children were being held in cages, and on a street corner near Trumps golf resort at Bedminster, New Jersey, where the president is spending the weekend. Do you know where our children are?Ž one protesters sign there asked. Another offered: Even the Trump family belongs together.Ž Trump has backed away from the family separation policy amid bipartisan and international uproar, and those marching Saturday demanded the government quickly reunite the families that were already divided. In the presidents hometown of New York City, an estimated 30,000 marchers poured across the Brooklyn Bridge in sweltering 90-degree heat, some carrying their children on their shoulders, chanting, Shame!Ž Drivers honked their horns in support. Its important for this administration to know that these policies that rip apart families „that treat people as less than human, like theyre vermin „ are not the way of God, they are not the law of love,Ž said the Rev. Julie Hoplamazian, an We care: Family separation protests flood US citiesBy ELLEN KNICKMEYERASSOCIATED PRESSBERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. „ President Donald Trump said Saturday that he had received assurances from King Salman of Saudi Arabia that the kingdom will increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrelsŽ in response to turmoil in Iran and Venezuela. Saudi Arabia acknowledged the call took place, but mentioned no production targets. Trump wrote on Twitter that he had asked the king in a phone call to boost oil production to make up the difference... Prices to (sic) high! He has agreed!Ž A little over an hour later, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported on the call, but offered few details. During the call, the two leaders stressed the need to make efforts to maintain the stability of oil markets and the growth of the global economy,Ž the statement said. Saudi Arabia says that King Salman has spoken to President Donald Trump, but gave no mention of the 2 million barrels of extra production the American leader tweeted about earlier in the day. A statement on the state-run Saudi Press Agency on Saturday afternoon said: During the call, the two leaders stressed the need to make efforts to maintain the stability of oil markets and the growth of the global economy.Ž It added that there also was an understanding that oil-producing countries would need to compensate for any potential shortage of supplies.Ž It did not elaborate. Oil prices have edged higher as the Trump administration has pushed allies to end all purchases of oil from Iran following the U.S. pulling out of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers. Prices also have risen with ongoing unrest in Venezuela and “ghting in Libya over control of that countrys oil infrastructure. Last week, members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries cartel led by Saudi Arabia and non-cartel Trump claims Saudi Arabia will boost oil productionBy KEN THOMAS and JON GAMBRELLASSOCIATED PRESSABOARD THE OPEN ARMS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA „ The full moon was the only light as a terri“ed 9-year-old boy from Central African Republic climbed into a rubber dinghy held together with duct tape, risking death in the dark waters off Libya along with his parents and 57 other traf“cked migrants. After a long night on the Mediterranean Sea, a Spanish rescue boat spotted them on the horizon after dawn. People were screaming, I was afraid,Ž said the boy, Krisley Dokouada. But after seeing the rescue boat, I knew there was no more danger.Ž Their savior Saturday was the Open Arms, which became the third rescue ship run by humanitarian aid groups to draw the ire of Italys anti-migrant interior minister, Matteo Salvini. He has vowed that Italys new populist government will no longer allow such rescue boats to dock in Italy, which has taken in hundreds of thousands of migrants rescued at sea in the last few years. Malta then angrily rebuffed Salvinis claim that the tiny Mediterranean nation was closest to the rescue ship and should give it safe harbor. That left Open Arms, operated by the Spanish group Proactiva Open Arms, relieved that all were safely rescued but without knowing where or when the boat will reach land. Later Saturday, in an unrelated rescue much further west, Spanish authorities reported saving another 63 people trying to reach the countrys southern coast from North Africa. While European politicians bickered about where the migrants should go, those rescued by the Open Arms were jubilant „ jumping, chanting and hugging their rescuers. Krisleys tensions melted when he was allowed to sit for a few minutes in the captains seat. For months, his family had lived in Libya, while they awaited their chance to make the Mediterranean crossing. His mother, Judith Dokouada, said she never left the shelter for fear of being kidnapped or sold as a slave, a fate many African migrants have spoken of to human rights advocates. There is war at home. They kill people, they beat people, they rape women, they kill boys,Ž said Dokouada, 32. She and her husband want to raise Krisley in a safer place. Another of those rescued, Bitcha Honoree, said he knew the risk he was taking when he boarded the dinghy in the middle of the night. The 39-year-old man from Cameroon said that he was sold twice as a slave, kidnapped and tortured in Libya while awaiting his chance to get aboard a smugglers boat. His brother sold his home in order to pay the ransom demanded by his captors in largely lawless Libya. Many have died on the dangerous crossing. The U.N. refugee agency says 1,137 migrants are estimated to have died on Mediterranean so far this year. And that does not include the 100 migrants reported missing and feared dead at sea Friday off the coast of Libya. A few hours after the Open Arms rescue Saturday, Salvini declared that the Spanish rescue Fear turns into joy: Rescue boat saves 60 in MediterraneanBy RENATA BRITO and FRANCES DEMILIOASSOCIATED PRESS PROTEST | 4 OIL | 4NEW YORK „ For evangelical Christian leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr., this is their political holy grail. Like many religious conservatives in a position to know, the Liberty University president with close ties to the White House suspects that the Supreme Court vacancy President Donald Trump “lls in the coming months will ultimately lead to the reversal of the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. But instead of celebrating publicly, some evangelical leaders are downplaying their fortune on an issue that has de“ned their movement for decades. What people dont understand is that if you overturn Roe v. Wade, all that does is give the states the right to decide whether abortion is legal or illegal,Ž Falwell told The Associated Press in an interview. My guess is that thered probably be less than 20 states that would make abortion illegal if given that right.Ž Falwell added: In the 70s, I dont know how many states had abortion illegal before Roe v. Wade, but it wont be near as many this time.Ž The sentiment, echoed by evangelical leaders across the country this past week, underscores the delicate politics that surround a moment many religious conservatives have longed for. With the retirement of swing vote Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump and his Republican allies in the Senate plan to install a conservative justice who could re-de“ne the law of the land on some of the nations most explosive policy debates „ none bigger than abortion. And while these are the very best of times for the religious right, social conservatives risk a powerful backlash from their opponents if they cheer too loudly. Womens groups have already raised the alarm for their constituents, particularly Evangelical leaders downplay potential Roe v.

The protesters demanded the death penalty for two suspects arrested on suspicion of raping the girl and trying to slit her throat with a knife on Tuesday in Mandsaur, a town in Madhya Pradesh state. The town is 425 miles southwest of New Delhi. The girl was allegedly abducted while waiting to be picked up from school by her parents. She is in a stable condition in a hospital, police of“cer Manoj Kumar Singh said. Crimes against women in India have been rising despite tougher laws. India has been shaken by a series of sexual assaults since 2012, when a student was gang-raped and murdered on a moving New Delhi bus. The government has passed a series of laws increasing punishment for rape of an adult to 20 years in prison, but its rare for more than a few weeks to pass without another report of a brutal sexual assault. Responding to widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of young girls and other attacks on children, Indias government recently approved the death penalty for people convicted of raping children under 12.Ethiopia set to remove 3 armed groups from terror list NSA deletion of call records raising questionsADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) „ Ethiopias cabinet has passed a resolution to remove three armed groups from a terror list as part of sweeping reforms under a new prime minister. The groups, operating mainly from neighboring Eritrea, had opposed the government that ruled Ethiopia for close to three decades. The resolution delisting the Ogaden National Liberation Front, the Oromo Liberation Front and Ginbot 7 now goes to Parliament, the prime ministers chief of staff, Fitsum Arega, said Saturday on Twitter: The decision will encourage groups to use peaceful political discourse to achieve political ends.Ž Senior “gures with the groups, including British national Andargachew Tsige, were released from prison in the weeks after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed took of“ce in April. Al-Qaida and the Somalia-based al-Shabab remain on Ethiopias terror list. The “ve groups were listed in 2011 under Ethiopias anti-terrorism proclamation, which the government at the time said was aimed at undercutting terror threats at home and in the region. The cabinet also approved a law to be sent to Parliament that grants amnesty for individuals and groups either under investigation or convicted for treason, crime against the constitutional order and armed struggle. Ethiopias ruling coalition and af“liated parties hold all seats in Parliament. WASHINGTON (AP) „ The National Security Agency is deleting more than 685 million call records the government obtained since 2015 from telecommunication companies in connection with investigations.

Mexican law dictates that candidates and parties must cease their campaign activities three days before elections so that voters can re”ect on their options. Workers pulled down giant banners with the smiling faces of politicians that have accompanied capital dwellers for 150 days. Authorities in Mexico City said that as of Saturday they had removed more than 10 tons of roadside propaganda. Mexicans will cast votes for posts at every level of government, including the presidency. The campaign season was marked by lively debates, allegations of vote buying and more than 130 politicians murdered. The election has become a referendum of sorts on widespread government corruption.Barack Obama visits venture capital firm on California trip Police: 8 shot at Georgia nightclub, no fatalities Pharmacy chain, Ohio Health Department sued over HIV mailing Police: Teacher, 70, offered 16-year-old girl iPhone for sexFormer President Barack Obama has visited a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital “rm.

News outlets report the shooting in Ashburn, about 160 miles south of Atlanta, happened Saturday at around 2:30 a.m. Of“cials are not sure if the shooting happened inside or outside the nightclub. The victims have been taken to Tift Regional Hospital and one was airlifted to a hospital in Macon. Their conditions have not been released.

Suffolk County police said Inswasty paid one student $5 for a bikini photo and the other student $150 to pose for nude photos. Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart says Inswasty later offered the second student an iPhone X to have sex. She declined. No phone number was listed for Inswasty. Court records did not list a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. Inswastys union did not immediately respond to a message.

TOKYO, Japan (AP) „ A Hello Kitty-themed  shinkansen Ž bullet train has debuted in Japan. Adorned with the cartoon icon inside and out, its a dream ride for fans of the internationally popular character. The special shinkansen had its inaugural round trip Saturday between Osaka and Fukuoka, connecting Japans west and south. It will run through September. The stylish, eight-car train is painted pink and white, showcasing Hello Kitty images and trademark ribbons from ”ooring to seat covers and windows. In one car, a life-size Hello Kitty doll donning a train crew uniform and a hat „ decorated with a pink bow, of course „ greets passengers. Hello Kitty, created in 1974 by the Japanese company Sanrio Co., is a global icon with fans of all ages.ODD NEWS All aboard: Hello Kitty bullet train debuts KYODO NEWS VIA APHello Kitty-themed bullet train Dear Mr. Berko: Ive enclosed my check for you to review my portfolio. My husband passed away four years ago, and Im now a 71-year-old widow. A lady friend and I attended an invitation-only lunch for seniors two weeks ago, which was very interesting. The speaker believes that in the coming years, were going to have a stock market crash and very high in”ation that will last at least through the next two elections. My daughter and I visited him at his of“ce, and he recommended that I sell our nine stocks and two mutual funds, which my husband bought and have been in our account since he died. The stockbroker said that 20 percent of the proceeds should be invested in a ”oating-rate mutual fund, which would pay more each time interest rates go up. Then, he said, we should invest 30 percent in an annuity that guarantees against any loss and pays a guaranteed 6 percent. He wants the last 30 percent to go in a private real estate limited partnership that owns new Section 8 apartments. This real estate partnership would protect me against in”ation and start paying an 8 percent dividend in three years. He advises that we leave the remaining 20 percent in a money market account. Both my daughter and I think this makes good sense, and so does our accountant, who has known this broker for years. Im close to my husbands sister, who is a pharmacist and smart in business ways. She reads your column in Cleveland and told me to contact you before making any changes. „ TB, Vancouver, Wash. Dear TB: Beware of free educationalŽ lunches; theyre infrequently free and seldom educational. Rather, theyre a salesmans decoy and an investors trap. And because of your pro“le „ a widow with several million dollars and no “nancial experience „ youre de“ned as a whaleŽ (a big catch) by “nancial advisers. Thank you for the $1,000 check, which Ive returned. Your newspaper pays me well for my semiweekly advice. That your sister in-law told you to write to me suggests shes a very smart lady. This adviser has the makings of a great sociopath who would steal the dimes from his dead mothers eyes. I know many “nancial advisers like this cur. Their sweet spiels could persuade the devil to join a Baptist church. I urge you to contact the investment adviser who helped your husband “ve years ago. If hes still in business, I believe that his advice would jibe with mine. I cant think of a reason to sell a single one of your nine stocks „ Medtronic, Caterpillar, Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, Southern, American Express, Chevron, Home Depot and NextEra Energy. Those are nine stocks that you can keep for the rest and best of your life „ and your daughters life, too. Nor would I, in my wildest dreams, ever consider selling your two mutual funds „ Fidelity Growth Co. Fund and Dodge & Cox Stock Fund. They are managed darn well and have enviable long-term annual returns. Your husband had a “ne adviser, who didnt need those risible government rules and investment guidelines from Washington telling him how to invest your spouses money. Sadly, an increasing number of “nancial advisers have become so greedy and viscerally unscrupulous. Now the federal government “nds it must enact laws requiring “nancial advisers to put the clients best interests “rst. The realization is that too many “nancial advisers are putting their best interest “rst and not the clients, and thats scary. It certainly describes the fellow who bought you lunch. Your $2.8 million portfolio is a widows dream and a slick “nancial advisers Golconda. If you followed this creeps advice, he would make an 8 percent commission on an $840,000 real estate limited partnership purchase. That would be a $67,200 payday. Next, hed take a $17,000 commission on a $560,000 purchase of a ”oating-rate bond fund. Then he would scarf a 6 percent fee, or $50,040, on an $840,000 purchase of a 5 percent annuity. The total commission cost would be $134,600, and this rotter would pocket that money, which is just about what the average stockbroker makes in a year, in one afternoon. Meanwhile, your accountant may be in cahoots with this brokster and might share some of the commission. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O.

The families split up as they tried to enter the U.S. illegally were largely ”eeing extreme violence, persecution or economic collapse in their home countries, often in Central America. In Washington, D.C., another massive crowd gathered in Lafayette Park across from the White House in what was expected to be the largest protest of the day, stretching for hours under a searing sun. Fire“ghters at one point misted the crowd to help people cool off. Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the musical Hamilton,Ž sang a lullaby dedicated to parents unable to sing to their children. Singersongwriter Alicia Keys read a letter written by a woman whose child had been taken away from her at the border. Around her, thousands waved signs: I care,Ž some read, referencing a jacket that “rst lady Melania Trump wore when traveling to visit child migrants. Her jacket said, I really dont care, do U?Ž and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday. We care!Ž marchers shouted outside Dallas City Hall. Organizer Michelle Wentz says opposition to the Trump administrations barbaric and inhumaneŽ policy has seemed to cross political party lines. The zero tolerance policyŽ of prosecuting people caught entering the country illegally led of“cials to separate more than 2,000 children from their parents before being abandoned. Trump took to Twitter to show his support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement amid calls from some Democrats for major changes to the agency. Tweeting from New Jersey on Saturday, Trump urged ICE agents to not worry or lose your spirit.Ž He wrote that the radical left Dems want you out. Next it will be all police.Ž Though many at the rallies were seasoned anti-Trump demonstrators, others were new to activism, including parents who said they felt compelled to act after heart-wrenching accounts of families torn apart. Nationwide, groups came together in city parks and downtown squares, while others converged on the international bridge between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico. At the border, they protested what speakers described as unconstitutional overreach by the Trump administration and heavy-handed tactics by immigration agents. They carried signs with slogans like We are all immigrantsŽ as they chanted Love, not hate, makes America great.Ž Marchers took to the streets in Raleigh, North Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; Pittsburgh; Houston; cities in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, as well as Antler, North Dakota, population 27. Steve Adelmund, a father of two, was inspired to organize a protest in rural Marshalltown, Iowa, after turning on the news on Fathers Day and seeing children being separated from their families and held in cages. It hit me in the heart. I cried,Ž said Adelmund, whose event drew about 125 people. In Columbus, Ohio, at least one person was arrested when protesters blocked a downtown street, the Columbus Dispatch reported. But most of the rallies remained peaceful. In downtown Los Angeles, John Legend serenaded the crowd while Democratic politicians who have clashed with Trump had strong words for the president, including U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters who called for impeachment. In Boston, a Brazilian mother separated from her 10-year-old son at the border 37 days ago approached the microphone. We came to the United States seeking help, and we never imagined that this could happen. So I beg everyone, please release these children, give my son back to me,Ž she said through an interpreter and wept. He son has pleaded with her on the phone to bring him home. I beg you all,Ž she said. Please “ght and continue “ghting, because we will win.ŽPROTESTFROM PAGE 1 members agreed to pump 1 million barrels more crude oil per day, a move that should help contain the recent rise in global energy prices. However, summer months in the U.S. usually lead to increased demand for oil, pushing up the price of gasoline in a midterm election year. A gallon of regular gasoline sold on average in the U.S. for $2.85, up from $2.23 a gallon last year, according to AAA. If Trumps comments are accurate, oil analyst Phil Flynn said it could immediately knock $2 or $3 off a barrel of oil. But he said its unlikely that decrease could sustain itself as demand spikes, leading prices to rise by wintertime. Well need more oil down the road and therell be nowhere to get it,Ž said Flynn, of the Price Futures Group. This leaves the world in kind of a vulnerable state.Ž Other analysts were more doubtful about immediate effects. Trump appears to be trying to talk the market down,Ž said Lawrence Goldstein, who directs the Energy Policy Research Foundation. He questioned whether Trumps words would do anything to reverse the effects on the market of declining Iranian oil production. He also noted it always takes at least two months before a change in shipping commitments affects the market. Trumps aim may be to exert maximum pressure on Iran while at the same time not upsetting potential U.S. midterm voters with higher gas prices, said Antoine Halff, a Columbia University researcher and former chief oil analyst for the International Energy Agency. Trumps comments came Saturday as global “nancial markets were closed. Brent crude stood at $79.42 a barrel, while U.S. benchmark crude was at $74.15. Saudi Arabia currently produces some 10 million barrels of crude oil a day. Its record is 10.72 million barrels a day. Trumps tweet offered no timeframe for the additional 2 million barrels „ whether that meant per day or per month. However, Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser told journalists in India on Monday that the state oil company has spare capacity of 2 million barrels of oil a day. That was after Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said the kingdom would honor the OPEC decision to stick to a 1-millionbarrel increase.OILFROM PAGE 1 suburban women, who are poised to play an outsized role in the “ght for the House majority this November. Two-thirds of Americans do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, according to a poll released Friday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Among women of reproductive age, three out of four want the high court ruling left alone. The poll was conducted before Kennedys retirement was announced. The left is going to try very hard to say this is all about overturning Roe,Ž said Johnnie Moore, a Southern Baptist minister who was a co-chairman of the Trump campaigns evangelical advisory board. The more signi“cant shift on the high court, he said, would likely be the help given to conservatives in their “ght for what they call religious freedom. Tony Perkins, who leads the socially conservative Family Research Council, said abortion was simply a factorŽ in evangelicals excitement over a more conservative Supreme Court. He suggested that public opinion was already shifting against abortion rights, although thats not true of the Roe v. Wade ruling, which has become slightly more popular over time. Perkins agreed with Moore that the broader push for religious freedom was a bigger conservative focus. Many evangelicals, for example, have lashed out against Obama-era laws that required churches and other religious institutions to provide their employees with womens reproductive services, including access to abortion and birth control. Others have rallied behind private business owners who faced legal repercussions after denying services to gay people. Yet sweeping restrictions to abortion rights are certainly on the table, Moore noted. There is a high level of con“dence within the community that overturning Roe is actually, “nally possible,Ž Moore said. He added: Evangelicals have never been more con“dent in the future of America than they are now. Its just a fact.Ž Despite Trumps struggles with Christian values in his personal life at times, skeptical evangelical Christians lined up behind him in the 2016 election, and they remain one of his most loyal constituencies. The presidents standing with white evangelical Christians hit an alltime high in April when 75 percent of evangelicals held a favorable view of Trump, according to a poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute.REVERSALFROM PAGE 1boat can forget about arriving in an Italian portŽ and claimed it should go to Malta. Even though the number of migrants arriving in Europe is sharply down this year from 2017, migration issues have deepened political divisions in the European Union, fueled in part by the demands of anti-migrant nationalist parties. Roberto Fico, a leading “gure in the 5-Star Movement, the senior partner in Italys ruling coalition, told reporters after inspecting a migrant reception center in Sicily that I wouldnt close the ports.Ž The Open Arms captain, Marco Martinez, said he told the Romebased Maritime Rescue Coordination Center about the migrants and was instructed to call Libyan maritime authorities, who didnt answer. The captain said of“cials in Rome then told him it was up to him to decide whether to carry out the rescue. I took the decision to save these human beings,Ž Martinez told an AP journalist who viewed the rescue from a dinghy belonging to its sister ship Astral.

I was a pioneering discount brokerage, with commission fees as low as $8 as early as 1998. (Today my online stock trades cost $6.95.) Over the years I merged with or acquired K. Aufhauser, Datek, National Discount Brokers, thinkorswim and Scottrade. I was first to offer automated trades via touchtone phone back in 1988. Today I have more than 10,000 employees, more than 11 million funded client accounts, and more than $1 trillion in client assets. I execute more than 900,000 trades daily. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. fee S&P 500 index funds can have you in stocks quickly and easily. Contribute generously to IRAs and/ or 401(k)s. € Spend less. There are lots of relatively painless ways to cut back, such as by switching from cable TV to one or more streaming services and by shopping around for lower insurance rates on your various policies. Eat out a little less often and shop only when you need things, not just for fun. If you can spend $200 less per month, thats $2,400 per year, which would grow to more than $118,000 over 20 years at an average annual growth rate of 8 percent. € Consider retiring a few years later than planned, to save more money and delay starting to tap your nest egg. You might enjoy company-sponsored health insurance a bit longer, too. Or aim to retire early, if you can. A good plan and discipline can have many retiring in their early 60s or sooner.

Its shares have been beaten down due to competitive pressures and uncertainty surrounding its planned merger with Time Warner. Of course, as a stocks price falls, its dividend yield rises, and AT&Ts payout recently yielded a fat 6.2 percent. Better still, that payout is likely to increase in the future, as AT&T has boosted its dividend for 34 years in a row. AT&T generated roughly $18.3 billion in free cash flow over the trailing-12-month period. Its robust cash flow generation is likely to continue, thanks to its being an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider and its strong positions in the still-reliable wireless service and video businesses. (The company will soon be rolling out its 5G network.) With the merger with Time Warner recently completed, AT&Ts longterm prospects are even better. The union will create one of the worlds leading entertainment producers, open up new service bundling opportunities and allow for the combined company to use AT&Ts strength in the mobile and internet spaces to get better advertising rates for Time Warner networks and content. AT&T is the second-largest wireless carrier in the U.S., and the nations top wireline and pay-TV service provider. Those businesses give it a wide defensive moat against its potential challengers. Give the company some consideration for your long-term portfolio. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentThe Wrong StockMy dumbest investment was when I trusted a day traderŽ to execute an order to buy $10,000 worth of Apple at $27 per share. Instead, he bought shares of another company, which immediately went bye-bye. The guys boss? He stood behind this bozo. The lesson I learned is: Dont trust anyone working with your money. If you dont take care of your own business, then someone else will. „ I., online The Fool Responds: If it was really a day trader who was managing your money, you probably would have done poorly, regardless. Day traders are known for buying and selling frequently, which racks up commission charges and has any gains taxed at generally higher tax rates. More important, day traders are known for losing money. No less an authority than the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has warned: Day traders typically suffer severe financial losses in their first months of trading, and many never graduate to profit-making status.Ž If youd owned Apple stock for only a few hours or days, you would have lost out on a heck of a lot of future growth. Consulting financial professionals is fine, but as you concluded, its best to stay in control of your own money and do your own research and thinking, too, as no one has your best interests at heart as much as you do. Market Share, ExplainedQWhats market shareŽ? „ M.R., Venice, FloridaAIt refers to the percentage of a market that a product, service or company commands, and its a useful measure to track when researching companies or industries.Think about smartphones, for example. If many of your friends use iPhones, you might assume that Apple enjoys the highest market share in the category. But actually, as of the end of March, Samsung had that honor, with a 20.5 percent global share; followed by Apple, with 14.1 percent; and the Chinese company Huawei, with 10.4 percent. (That means that 20.5 percent of smartphones sold worldwide in the last quarter were Samsung devices.) Its also good to pay attention to trends and growth rates. Apple may be in second place, but it gained share from the end of 2017 to the end of March 2018, rising to that 14.1 percent from 13.7 percent. Samsungs share shrank from 20.8 percent to 20.5 percent. As another example, the U.S. market share leader in ice cream brands last year was private label brands, with 20 percent of the market, followed by Breyers, with 9.2 percent; Ben & Jerrys, with 8.7 percent; and Haagen-Dazs, with 8.4 percent.***QWhy cant I find stock listings in the newspaper on Mondays? „ C.C., SeattleAThe stock markets in America are closed on weekends, so there is no action to report on Mondays. Dont think you have to follow stocks daily moves, though. Its more important to keep up with how a company is performing than how its stock is moving. Great fortunes can be amassed by buying into companies youve researched well and believe in and then simply hanging on for the long term.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolHow to Build a Better RetirementMost of us are looking forward to retirement, but yours may not be as good as you hoped if you dont plan for it and make some smart moves „ like these: € Pay off debt. Its OK to maintain a low-interest-rate mortgage, but work hard to pay off any high-interest-rate debt, such as that from credit cards. € Have a plan. Run the numbers to see how much money youll need for retirement, how close you are to your goal and how you might get there. Online calculators such as those at calculator.net and finra.org/ retirementcalculator can help, and a financial planner can be well worth hiring, too. (Youll find fee-only ones at napfa.org .) € Save aggressively. Dont just save a little in your 401(k) and hope for the best. The more you save, and the earlier you do so, the more youll likely end up with in retirement. Long-term money stands a good chance of growing well in the stock market, and low 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun /Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My husband has become very overweight, which has caused his sex drive „ as well as his health „ to suer. I worry about him constantly, and I miss the intimacy we used to have. He is aware of how I feel and started trying to eat healthier. He also tries to exercise at least a little bit every day. The problem is he constantly falls o the wagon. Sometimes he says hes too tired to exercise, or he reverts back to his old habits and ends up eating fast food. He always tries again the next day, but he wont make much progress at the rate hes going. I What can I say that will make him take this more seriously? „ ALL ABOUT HEALTH IN ALABAMA DEAR ALL ABOUT HEALTH: Tell your husband how much you love him, and youre afraid until death do us partŽ will happen prematurely if he continues killing himself with his fork and his sedentary ways. You might also recite the names of the various diseases that accompany obesity in most people. But if your husbands doctor hasnt been able to get the message through to him, there isnt much more you can do besides love him for the wonderful husband he is and keep your ngers crossed. I say this because the only person who can makeŽ your husband commit to a diet and exercise program is himself, with the recognition that changing his unhealthy patterns wont be easy and WILL take time. DEAR ABBY: Recently, my wife took two of our granddaughters (ages 9 and 15) and a friend (age 15) to the movies. As usual, the next day I found trash had been left in the car, which triggered the following text exchange. I sent both granddaughters a picture of a garbage can and my car and asked: Please advise which one is used to throw away trash? If you need help, ask your mom. Im not accusing anyone of anything. Also, if one of your friends was to throw trash on your Poppys car oor, what should you do? Would you ask them to pick it up „ yes or no?Ž The only response I received was from their mom, who said, Amber (granddaughter) did not leave trash in your car!Ž Things have gone downhill from there. I replied that I expected an answer to my questions, and that I hadnt accused anybody of anything. Many tears have been shed, and my wife has threatened to divorce me for standing my ground. We have agreed to have you settle this. What say you? „ TALKING TRASH IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR TALKING TRASH: You are the injured party. You did nothing wrong. You are owed an apology from all concerned „ the kid who left the trash in your car, and your wife and daughter for overreacting. DEAR ABBY: My older sister was born on July 4. Shes now in her 60s and refuses to celebrate the holiday. She also doesnt want the family to celebrate it either. We have tried to be supportive in years past, but we miss having our Fourth of July holiday. What do you suggest? „ WANTS TO CELEBRATE DEAR WANTS TO CELEBRATE: I suggest that before July 4, you declare YOUR independence by asking your older sister what other day she would like to celebrate her birthday. Then celebrate the Fourth of July as you would like „ without her.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

And making a satisfying pot of coee is essential for many of my readers. Heres how to make that pot a good one: „Always begin with fresh, clean, cold water. „Select the correct amount of coee, which usually is 1 tablespoon per 6 ounces, but, of course, varies according to your taste. Pick the proper grind for the method you are using for brewing. „Clean the coeepot thoroughly. Dont just give the pot a fast rinse with water after use because the oils will build up over time. Wash the pot with soap and water often, at least every third or fourth time. Many pots, lter baskets and lids can be cleaned well in the dishwasher. „For many coee makers (check the directions), you can run full-strength vinegar through a brew cycle and follow with several brew cycles of plain water to remove heavy deposits. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Be sure to be prepared to take care of your high-tech devices, which will undoubtedly come on board along with your children and pets. Safety on all levels should be your top priority. Put your smartphones, cameras or other high-tech equipment into heavy-duty zippered plastic bags to protect them in case they get sprayed or fall into the water. Also make certain that everyone on board has a life vest. And that includes your dog! „ Heloise Dear Heloise: When we have company, we always serve pancakes, a family tradition. For less stress in the morning, I make the batter the night before and pour it into a clean, plastic squeeze bottle. In the morning, I just squirt the batter into the pan. This gives me more time to chat with my guests and less mess to clean up! „ Becky from North Carolina Dear Readers: Here are two quick and easy recipes to use with your favorite honey: „Blend honey with apple cider and rub over a leg of lamb and then cook. „Spread lightly buttered toast with fresh ricotta cheese and spoon a bit of honey on top for a sweet breakfast treat. „If your honey has crystallized, just zap it uncovered in the microwave on high for a few seconds. To prevent this problem, do not store honey in the refrigerator. Instead, keep it on a shelf. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: My kids and our family love to go to the beach, which involves hauling a lot of stu. To lessen this task, I give each one of my children a large mesh tote bag. They can take their favorite beach toys and are responsible for them. At the day of the day, they just put them all back into their bag. Then they dunk the bag into the water to remove the sand before they bring it back to the car. „ Valerie from Maryland Dear Readers: The brass objects we have in our homes are lovely, but they need to be cleaned and polished. First, check the brass to see if its lacquered or nonlacquered because a dierent cleaning method is used for each surface. For lacquered brass, wipe it o with a soft, clean, damp cloth. Do not put any cleaner on this type of surface. For nonlacquered brass, pour a bit of ketchup onto a cloth, rub over it, rinse and dry. „ HeloisePassion for fast food slows down mans eort to lose some weightDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Despite living in Illinois, hes had season tickets since 2007, and when the 2015 NFL draft was held in Chicago, the Bucs gave him VIP passes so he could be there in person when quarterback Jameis Winstons name was announced as the No. 1 overall pick. He grew to like Winston enough that two years ago, in Tampa to see a Thursday night game, he bought a red No. 3 Winston jersey at Raymond James Stadium, proudly rotating that with a No. 93 Gerald McCoy jersey. But when news came out Thursday that Winston was being suspended three games for violating the leagues personal conduct policy, when he read Winstons apology, he decided it was enough. He neatly folded up the jersey, NFL: BuccaneersLifelong fan mails back jersey to the teamBy RODNEY PAGETampa Bay TimesST. PETERSBURG … The Rays certainly missed CF Kevin Kiermaier when he was forced to the disabled list in mid-April with a right thumb injury. His bat at the top of the lineup is one reason, but even bigger is his play in the outfield. One example came in the ninth inning of Thursdays game against the Astros. With the Rays down 1-0, Kiermaier made a running catch in left-centerfield with one out and a runner on second. The Rays eventually got out of the inning and at least had a chance down by a run in the bottom of the ninth. It was kind of a nothing KK play but he is one of three or four center fielders who can actually go get that ball,Ž Rays manager Kevin Cash said. As a third base coach you have to be aware of where he is standing because he can beat you with his legs and with his arm.Ž Kiermaier did try to beat the Astros on Thursday with his legs when he laid down a bunt base hit in the eighth that put runners on the corners with no outs. He got doubled off first when Matt Duffy lined out to shortstop, but he still tried to make something happen. Cash said that was Kiermaiers call. And hes not going to expect him to bunt often in the future. I would never ask a guy to sit there and bunt,Ž Cash said. KK can do so many powerful things with the bat. He can hit the ball in the gap, hit it out of the ball park. There are times in a game where its nice to drop it down. But KK has to be comfortable doing that. We dont want to be in a position to tell him to bunt.

Unlike Francesco Molinari and Abraham Ancer, he couldnt keep it going Saturday in the Quicken Loans National. Ancer and Molinari each handled the scorching heat on the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm and shared the lead going into the final round. Ancer birdied two of his last three holes for the lowest score of his career, an 8-under 62, giving the 27-year-old Mexican his best shot at a first PGA Tour victory. Ancer has never been in the to p 10 g oin g into the final round in 22 previous starts. Molinari also is going for his first official PGA Tour victory, though that comes with an asterisk. He won a World Golf Championship in Shanghai in 2010, though the PGA Tour did not recognize the HSBC Champions as an official win until a year later. They were at 13-under 197, two shots clear of Ryan Armour (68) and Zac Blair (66). Woods was six shots behind, the seventh straight tournament he has been at least five shots behind going into the final round. It sure didnt sound that way, and for most of the round, it didnt look that way. With his fifth birdie of the front nine, Woods was two shots out of the lead. And then he opened the back nine with a pair of birdie chances just inside 10 feet and missed the both. He never really regained his momentum, finished with another bogey and shot 68. Considering the scoring average was 69.6 in the third round, he wound up losing two shots to the lead. It was frustrating because I played better than what my score indicates,Ž Woods said. I thought that 10 under would have been a good score for me to end up at for the day, and I could have easily gotten that today on the back nine.Ž He didnt, and now has more ground to make up. The nine players ahead of him have combined for just five (official) PGA Tour victories. Molinaro has five European Tour victories, has played on two Ryder Cup teams and is No. 17 in the world. The Italian is playing at the National and plans to be at the John Deere Classic in two weeks, even though the European Tour is in the meat of its summer schedule with national opens in France, Ireland and Scotland leading up to the British Open. Molinaro is currently among qualifiers for the Ryder Cup team, but his FedEx Cup standing is at No. 123. Hes making the most of his first trip to the TPC Potomac. Even though he missed a few short putts on the front nine, he closed with a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th and hit wedge into 5 feet for birdie at the 18th.GOLF: PGA TourAncer, Molinari share lead at National, Tiger stallsBy DICK SCANLONAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG „ Justin Verlanders worst start with the Houston Astros might have been OK if not for Wilson Ramos. Ramos drove in four runs in the first two innings against Verlander and the Tampa Bay Rays went on to a 5-2 win over the Astros on Saturday. I wasnt sharp, but also I didnt have luck on my side,Ž Verlander said. I made an adjustment during the third inning that I thought was good, but it was too little too late.Ž Verlander (9-4) gave up the most runs (5) and hits (9) of any of his 23 starts since his trade to Houston late last summer. He struck out eight in a seasonlow five innings after coming in with a major league-leading 1.82 ERA „ though it was 4.34 in six June starts. The Astros have lost his last three starts. Matt Duffy finished with three hits, including two in the first two innings, to help the Rays win for the seventh time in eight tames to move to .500 (41-41) for the first time since June 1. I gave up three hard-hit balls, all to the same guy. The rest of em, nobody hit the ball hard,Ž Verlander said. Ramos got the Rays on the scoreboard with a two-run double in the first, and made it 5-0 with a two-run single in the second. Those two at bats summarized Verlanders day. The first at bat, I put him in a 3-1 situation where, bases loaded, he knows a heaters coming, and he hit it off the wall. So thats my fault,Ž Verlander said. His next bat I got a ground ball up the middle on a slider, which is kind of what youre looking for. But it found a hole.Ž Tampa Bay has held opponents to two runs or fewer in five straight games for only the second time in franchise history. The way these guys are throwing right now, were tough to beat,Ž said Kevin Kiermaier, who scored in each of the first two innings. Alex Bregman got the Astros on the board with a two-run homer in the sixth off Vidal Nuno. It was Bregmans 16th home run and his fifth in six games. Theyve been throwing the ball well over there, and we havent really been able to put anything together,Ž Bregman said. Verlander was a little unfortunate today with some of the weak contact that went for hits, but weve got to do a better job of putting up runs for him. Nuno (2-0) got the win after pitching 4 ‡ innings of relief, giving up two runs and four hits while striking out four. Sergio Romo pitched ninth for his seventh save in 11 opportunities. Ryne Stanek pitched the first inning for Tampa Bay, giving up a single to Jose Altuve, Houstons only hit in the first four innings.RARE ERRORAdeiny Hechavarria made a fielding error on George Springers grounder in the top of the sixth just before Bregmans homer. It ended a streak of 94 games and 319 chances in which the Rays shortstop had not committed a miscue. It was the longest errorless streak in franchise history for a shortstop. Hechavarrias last error had come on July 30, 2017 at Yankee Stadium.MLB: Rays 5, Astros 2Ramos has 4 RBIs as Rays beat AstrosAP PHOTOTampa Bay Rays Matt Duffy (5), C.J. Cron (44) and Kevin Kiermaier celebrate the win over the Astros yesterday in St. Petersburg. By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Leading by one run entering the ninth inning, the Charlotte Stone Crabs were three outs away from their first winning streak of the second half. Stone Crabs reliever Hunter Schryver managed to record just one out before allowing four batters to reach base on the way to a 6-5 victory for the Tampa Tarpons. Schryver allowed two runs in the ninth inning „ one of which came while Zack Mozingo was on the mound „ but both were unearned after a fielding error by Miles Mastrobuoni helped spark the Tarpons rally. Charlotte trailed for nearly the entirety of the game, but managed to take a 5-4 lead in the eighth inning. After Kevin Padlo walked and Jesus Sanchez reached on an error, Josh Lowe cleared the bases for a gametying two-run double. Lowe later scored on a wild pitch by Tarpons reliever Matt Wivins. The Stone Crabs once again went with the Tampa Bay Rays openerŽ strategy of beginning the game with a reliever. Saturdays starting reliever was J.D. Busfield, and the strategy didnt go as planned. Busfield, pitching for the first two innings of the game, allowed three runs on three hits and a walk. He also gave up a pair of solo home runs to Steven Sensley and Alexander Palma. Typical starting pitcher Brock Burke took over for Busfield in the third inning and continued the strong streak hes put together over his last eight outings „ where hes allowed more than two earned runs just twice in that span. Burke gave up just one run on three hits and two walks over six strong innings while striking out six batters. The lone run Burke surrendered came on a passed ball with a runner on third base, which probably shouldve been controlled by catcher Zac Law. Lucius Fox and Josh Lowe each had two hits in the loss. Fox scored a pair of runs. Lowe had two RBI. Tristan Gray hit his league-leading 22nd double of the season.MILB: Tarpons 6, Stone Crabs 5Stone Crabs blow 9th-inning leadPHOTO BY TOM ONEILLCharlotte Stone Crabs relief pitcher Brock Burke (23) faces the Tampa Tarpons during the third inning Saturday at Charlotte Sports Park.

The Sun / Sunday, July 1, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By STEPHEN WHYNO and JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressOn the eve of free agency, John Tavares is leaving the NHL guessing about his destination. Roughly 18 hours until the market opens, the elite center had not chosen between six suitors, with the San Jose Sharks, hometown Toronto Maple Leafs and incumbent New York Islanders considered the most likely options. Tavares could only get an eight-year deal by re-signing with the Islanders, but would have to do so before midnight when that advantage expires. If the Tavares sweepstakes drag on into Sunday, it would seem to favor San Jose and Toronto, either of which could sign the 27-yearold to a seven-year deal worth $70 million or more. He met this week with the Sharks, Maple Leafs, Islanders, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning, and his decision could drastically affect the plans of those teams and others. I think other teams have admitted, we would have to make moves (to clear salary-cap space),Ž Bruins general manager Don Sweeny told reporters in Boston on Friday. Pretty confident wed be able to do that.Ž As hockey waited for the Tavares watch to end, several teams made moves Saturday ahead of the frenzy. The Sharks agreed to terms on a $64 million, eight-year extension with forward Logan Couture, according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasnt been announced. It cant become official until after noon Sunday because it doesnt begin until the 2019-20 season „ the same as long-term deals the Los Angeles Kings have with Drew Doughty and Arizona Coyotes have with Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Niklas Hjalmarsson. Detroit got its own defenseman under contract for the next two seasons by agreeing to deal with Mike Green that pays him $5.375 million annually. Signing Green could be just the start of the action for the Red Wings, who have been linked to unrestricted free agent goaltender Jonathan Bernier and winger Thomas Vanek. New Jersey also shored up its goaltending situation by re-signing Eddie Lack to a $650,000, oneyear deal. The Devils also have Cory Schneider and Keith Kinkaid, who split time last season and in the playoffs. A person with direct knowledge of discussions said the Buffalo Sabres are expected to sign goalie Carter Hutton, who had been the St. Louis Blues backup to Jake Allen. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because agreements cannot be announced until the signing period begins. Hutton and others seem to already be ticketed for certain places, but many big-name players are still up for grabs. Maple Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk, who tied Tavares with 36 goals last season, has been drawing significant interest and, at 29, could easily command a seven-year contract at a substantial raise over his previous $4.25 million salary. The Western Conference-champion Vegas Golden Knights have cap space but might lose wingers David Perron and James Neal, who combined for 110 points last season. The Winnipeg Jets are doing their best to try to bring back center Paul Stastny after he was so instrumental in their playoff run. They cleared about $5.5 million in cap space by trading goaltender Steve Mason and Finnish forward Joel Armia to Montreal on Saturday but may still need more room to bring back the 32-year-old. The Canadiens are set to buy out Mason, putting him on unconditional waivers as the Minnesota Wild did with forward Tyler Ennis to clear cap space.NHLLeague awaits John Tavares decision on eve of free agencyAP PHOTONew York Islanders center John Tavares skates against the New Jersey Devils during the first period of an NHL hockey game on March 31, in Newark, N.J. took it to the post office and spent $24 to mail it, Priority Mail Express, to the team at 1 Buccaneer Place. In good conscience I can no longer wear my @ Jaboowins @Buccaneers jersey,Ž he wrote on Twitter. Im sending it back for you to donate or whatever you want. As a season ticket holder since 2007, Im embarrassed & disappointed by this scandal. Go Bucs in 2018!Ž Schuzer, 50, said he had long defended Winston, even since November, when a female Uber driver in Arizona accused him of putting his hand on her crotch during a 2 a.m. ride in March 2016. I was actually quite an advocate, saying if theres no evidence, I really didnt support how the NFL suspends people without tangible evidence or proof,Ž said Schuzer, who works in research with CAT scan and X-ray machines. I was in his corner, supporting him. Without evidence, how can you suspend someone?Ž But on Thursday, he read the statement from the NFL, finding the drivers account consistent and credibleŽ and determining that Winston had touched her in an inappropriate and sexual manner without her consent.Ž Then he read Winstons apology: Im sorr y to the Uber driver for the position I put you in.Ž That was the breaking point. I just didnt find it sincere,Ž Schuzer said. He was just covering his own (butt). To me, I didnt think there was anything tangible in there in terms of owning up to what he did. It was the final straw. You create more chaos by giving a half-hearted apology than by giving none at all.Ž Schuzer said he had supported the Bucs draftin g Winston in 2015, preferring him to Oregons Marcus Mariota, who would be taken No. 2 by the Titans. This was a careful, measured response by Schuzer. (I) didnt want to burn it on video or cut it up,Ž he wrote on Twitter, happy to see the jersey go to a Bucs fan who is more comfortable putting Winstons name on his or her back. They can donate it or whatever they want. But I wont wear it anymore.Ž To be clear, Schuzer says this doesnt make him any less of a Bucs fan. Hes keeping his season tickets, hopes to get to as many games as he can, and hell pay a steep price to see the Bucs play the Bears in Chicago as well. Im going to support this team 110 percent,Ž he said. But its going to be hard for me to cheer him, to have that on my shoulders. It doesnt feel right. If that was my sister or mother in that car, its just a bad message were sendin g .ŽBUCSFrom Page 1Hes equally wellversed on current events. Hes a junkie for what happens in the world,Ž said College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock, Kellys boss the past 5- years. He keeps up with the news „ all the news „ very closely.Ž Toss in a passion for pizza, a good burger (no cheese), movies, daily walks and Washington, D.C., sports teams (he was raised in Gaithersburg, Md., and went to high school in D.C.), and youve got the nuances in the portrait of USFs new vice president of athletics. But the broad strokes are what compelled the school to bring Kelly back to Tampa. Peers and former bosses insist this 47-year-old married dad of two girls „ who helped run a bay area Super Bowl and Final Four „ warrants a sequence of titles befitting a college leader. Consensus builder. Devoted husband and father. Visionary. Listener. Organizer. Not to mention proprietor of a most coveted cell-phone directory. No one has more extensive, positive contacts than Michael,Ž said former Bulls AD Paul Griffin, who hired Kelly as a USF associate AD in 2001. If those (Power Five) opportunities dont provide themselves in the industry, it wont be because of a lack of his ability to network with the decision makers.Ž The ability to pick up his iPhone and scroll through a directory of names such as Saban, Swinney and Swofford was a huge reason Kelly found himself grinning for cameras „ in dark suit, dark-green tie and small Bulls logo pinned on his left lapel „ Friday afternoon. From the outset of its AD search, USF made no secret it wanted someone with the clout and contacts to help the school get into a Power Five league when the next wave of conference realignment arrives. We were looking for a high level of integrity and strong moral character,Ž Dr. Judy Genshaft said Friday. For us, these qualities were non-negotiable.Ž Unlike other names mentioned for the USF job, Kellys figurative closet appears empty. A routine Tampa Bay Times background search uncovered only three traffic/driving tickets, all more than a decade old. The only potential source of embarrassment upon his return Friday to Tampa was from the shameless plaudits heaped upon him by colleagues. The two words I think for me that come to mind are organization and relationships,Ž said Sigmon, who worked for Kelly in Wake Forests athletic department in the late 1990s. He has great ability from a vision standpoint of how things should be organized, and the process that you need to go through to be ready and to accomplish whatever the goal is.Ž That quarter-century administrative odyssey included stints in athletic departments at Wake Forest (where he met wife Lisa, and where Maya Angelou was among their professors) and USF, where he served as Lee Roy Selmons associate AD for external affairs from 2001-02. It extended to three Super Bowls and a Final Four (where Kelly presided over local organizing committees), to the ACC (an associate commissioner overseeing football and broadcasting), to the College Football Playoff, where he spent five years as COO. Kelly first appeared on Hancocks radar while he was helping run an NCAA Tournament firstand second-round weekend in Winston-Salem in the 1990s. When St. Petersburg was considering people to head its local organizing committee for the 1999 Final Four at Tropicana Field, Kellys name was floated to Hancock, then Final Four director. And I thought, wow, thats a home run,Ž Hancock said. Hancock watched Kelly spend the better part of a year efficiently juggle the nuts and bolts of the operation: transportation planning, mobilizing community volunteers, handling the logistics of the massive coaches convention (which coincides with the Final Four), and game management. And then he and I just stayed in touch,Ž Hancock said. And when it was time to hire our COO here (at the College Football Playoff), Michael was No. 1 on my list.Ž Now comes perhaps his most challenging operation: to try and usher the Bulls into a place at the Power Five table. It will call for organization, networking, engagement, creativity, and perhaps even some smooth operating. Soundtrack optional. Were in a great league (American Athletic Conference) right now. How do we dominate that league to the best of our ability?Ž Kelly said. Thats got to be our goal right now. And when we do thatƒ well be the best-positioned school of anyone in the country for if anything else happens.ŽUSFFrom Page 1By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressFor Colin Campbell, going from Mike Keenans top assistant to head coach of the New York Rangers wasnt a big move. I just had to move 10 feet to another office,Ž Campbell said. Logistically it was simple, but in every other way it was an almostimpossible task. Campbell took over the Rangers after they ended a 54-year drought and paraded the Stanley Cup down Broadway because Keenan left in a contract dispute. Its a similar situation to the one Todd Reirden is walking into after the Washington Capitals promoted him from associate to head coach to replace Barry Trotz mere weeks after winning the Cup. Reirden is just the fourth new coach in the past 30 years to assume control of a Stanley Cup champion, a unique opportunity that presents problems Campbell, Scotty Bowman and Dave Lewis know well from their experiences. Lewis succeeded Bowman after being his associate coach with the champion 2002 Detroit Red Wings, and Bowman stepped in for BadgerŽ Bob Johnson after he led the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Cup in 1991 and had to take a leave of absence to fight cancer. All three had to balance the opportunity of taking over with the expectation of following a Cupwinning coach and the ensuing pressure. Besides replacing a legend, to be equal, you have to win the Stanley Cup, so it was a big challenge,Ž Lewis said. I was looking forward to the challenge, actually, of taking over a team, taking over a team that won a Stanley Cup and try to accomplish the same thing. I knew it would be very difficult.Ž Or as Campbell pointed out: You can only tie. You cant do better. Tyings pretty good. You have to win a Cup just tie your performance from a year before.Ž No pressure, Todd. Only Bowman „ who already had five Cup rings from the Montreal Canadiens 1970s dynasty „ pulled it off and repeated. And even that was a different set of circumstances because as director of player development, Bowman only agreed to coach the Penguins until Johnson was able to resume coaching or succumbed to cancer.NHLTaking over Stanley Cup champ is not an easy task for a coachBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles from a family vacation in the Caribbean. He could be there longer than usual. Hours before NBA free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize, James returned Saturday to Southern California, where he has two homes and a film production company. The Lakers are hoping they can persuade him to sign with them and return them to glory. Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday that he will not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season. At 12:01 a.m. Sunday, James will be an unrestricted free agent, and agent Rich Paul is expected to contact several teams with the Lakers and Cavs atop his list. By declining his option, James positioned himself to be able to choose where hell play next, and Cleveland, just up the road from his home near Akron, remains a strong possibility. But there are at least three other teams „ and maybe an outsider or two „ with legitimate shots at landing James, who made it clear following this years NBA Finals that hes still driven to win championships. While every team dreams of being ruled by King James, only a few have a legit chance of signing him.NBALeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nears

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, July 1, 2018 / The Sun Say Goodbye to Erectile DysfunctionPaid Advertisement The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood ow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and c reams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a 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=50538443By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON „ Everythings changed for Andy Murray at Wimbledon this time. A two-time champion at the All England Club, hes not really considered a serious title contender „ by himself or by anyone else, for that matter. He is not as prepared as usual as the grass-court Grand Slam tournaments Monday start approaches, having played a total of three matches all year after recently returning from hip surgery. He is not seeded, because his ranking is outside the top 150. Murray is, however, thrilled to be playing, provided nothing crops up before hes scheduled to face Benoit Paire of France in the first round Tuesday. I always want to be here competing. It feels a little bit odd coming into the tournament this year,Ž Murray said Saturday after practicing at the All England Club. Normally, like, at this stage, I feel really nervous, lots of pressure, and I expect a lot of myself around this time of year. Ive always loved that and enjoyed that in a way. It has been difficult, but enjoyed it. Whereas this year, it feels very, very different.Ž The first British man in 77 years to win a Wimbledon singles title when he did so in 2013, before adding another in 2016, Murray lost in the quarterfinals in 2017 to Sam Querrey, clearly hampered by his hip. Murray wound up not playing another match last season, then had his operation in January. Nearly 12 full months had passed by the time he ventured back into competition at the Queens Club grass-court event less than two weeks ago. Still with a hitch in his gait, Murray played more than 2 hours before losing to Nick Kyrgios in three sets. This week, again on grass, Murray beat fellow three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, before losing to countryman Kyle Edmund. Im pumped obviously because, I mean, four or five weeks ago, I didnt know whether Id be capable of competing at a level Id be happy with. I think the last couple of weeks has been beneficial,Ž said Murray, a two-time Olympic singles gold medalist whose first Grand Slam championship came at the 2012 U.S. Open. I dont think I played amazing in the matches, but I think Ive done well, considering the opponents.Ž Now comes Paire, a former member of the top 20 who is currently ranked 48th. Murray has won both of their two previous matchups, including in the fourth round at Wimbledon a year ago. Hes a tricky guy to play against, because of his style,Ž Murray said. He does hit a lot of drop shots, he serve-volleys. Hes unorthodox with his shot selection and stuff. He can be quite up and down, too, at times.ŽTENNIS: WimbledonSo much is di erent for Andy Murray this timeAP PHOTOAndy Murray practices ahead of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Saturday. By PAN PYLASAssociated PressKAZAN, Russia „ What Lionel Messi has never done, 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe did twice. The quick-footed French teenager scored two goals in a five-minute span of the second half to help his team rally for a 4-3 victory over Argentina. Saturdays victory gave France a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. Messi, who turned 31 during his fourth and possibly final World Cup, set up a pair of goals but again failed to score in a knockout match at the biggest event in soccer. Mbappe got his two in his first attempt. Of course, as Ive already and always said, in the World Cup you have all the top level players so it is an opportunity to show what you can do and what your abilities are,Ž said Mbappe, who now has three goals in Russia. There is no better place than a World Cup.Ž Mbappe was a constant threat to Argentinas creaking defense with his speed and skill and was at the heart of Frances often-breathtaking display, particularly in the middle of the second half. He became the second teenager to score multiple goals in a knockout match at the World Cup. Pele was the other, doing it twice at 17 at the 1958 tournament in Sweden. It is flattering to be the second one after Pele but lets put things in context. Pele is another category,Ž Mbappe said. But its good to be among the players to score in knockout matches.Ž With the score 2-2, Mbappe got his first goal with a cool finish from a tight angle in the 64th minute, his low shot going under Argentina goalkeeper Franco Armani. Four minutes later, he slotted past Armani again after he was put through on goal by a deft pass from Oliver Giroud. Mbappe also helped France to its first goal. Following a sustained period of early pressure, he won a penalty after a 40-meter burst of speed that ended with him being brought down by Marcos Rojo. Antoine Griezmann then scored from the spot in the 13th minute, sending Armani the wrong way. Our team is much younger, but we are there. We answered the call,Ž France coach Didier Deschamps said. It was not easy because we were leading and then there was an equalizer. Then they led 2-1, but we kept fighting. There is an excellent mentality in this group and we did everything to go further. We couldnt miss it and we did win it.Ž Mbappe was born a few months after France won the 1998 World Cup at home, its only title at the tournament. Deschamps was the captain of that team and Zinedine Zidane scored two goals in the final. People remember more the World Cup victory than the year I was born,Ž Mbappe said. It is normal (because) it was the time we were World Cup winners, so that is obviously what they remember.Ž France will next face Uruguay in the quarterfinals on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod. Blaise Matuidi will miss the match after receiving a second yellow card of the tournament.WORLD CUP: France 4, Argentina 3Mbappe, France beat ArgentinaBy ANGELA CHARLTONAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Moscows beer kegs are emptying fast and demand for Vladimir Putin T-shirts is overwhelming St. Petersburg street vendors as the World Cup sends business surging across the 11 Russian cities hosting soccers biggest show. The Russian president was counting on just such a boost after U.S. and European sanctions and low oil prices sank the country into recession, and after Russias government spent 800 billion rubles ($12.7 billion) to ready for the World Cup. But experts warn the boon wont last long without deeper change to the oil-reliant, corruption-tainted Russian economy. Among the big winners: freelance taxi drivers, dating apps and bars where fans gather to watch matches or celebrate their teams victory. We are so far off the chart on this, we order as much beer in one night as we would order in a month,Ž said Doug Steele, owner of Papas Bar & Grill on Nikolskaya Street just off Red Square. He dragged a keg on a dolly as he talked, too busy to stop. This neighborhood has become the place to party since the World Cup opened June 14. The blocklong GUM shopping mall that faces the Kremlin has seen traffic climb 80 percent compared to the same period last year, according to its manager, Teymuraz Guguberidze. The effect is much higher than our expectation,Ž he said. It makes us very happy.Ž The lift has reached retailers far beyond the Russian capital, helping other host cities far off the tourist path. The lowest-profile of the bunch, Saransk, spent hundreds of millions of dollars to build a stadium, high-rises and transport to accommodate tens of thousands of visitors who descended in recent weeks. Proud residents rented out their apartments and kept businesses open extra late to host fans after night games. High demand at restaurants so frequently caused shortages that patrons had to make a list of menu items they liked before ordering. Mexican fans revved up business in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg, overwhelming vendors at a sports store as they bought up any available souvenirs.WORLD CUPFans rev up revenues for sanctions-hobbled Russia hounded by two or three Uruguayan defenders. It was Cavani who instead took the spotlight. He combined with Luis Suarez to compete a series of precision passes to give Uruguay the early advantage with a header in the seventh minute. And after Portugal equalized on Pepes header in the 55th minute, it was Cavani again finishing a perfect Uruguay counter in the 62nd with a shot from just inside the penalty area that caught Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio slightly out of position and curled inside the far post. The truth is, it was really exciting,Ž Cavani said. There arent words to describe this.Ž Cavani now has three goals at the World Cup, but limped off in the 70th minute with an apparent injury and had to be replaced. He was helped to the sideline with his arm around Ronaldos back. Uruguay, a two-time champion that reached the semifinals at the 2010 World Cup, will next face France on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod.URUGUAYFrom Page 1 Former England captain John Terry caused a flap during Sparks call of the PortugalMorocco game when he posted a video of a TV screen to Instagram and added the words: Having to watch this game with no volume.Ž Terry deleted the post and wrote he meant there was no audio in his house when he returned from the Maldives. No matter the interpretation, it is clear women have had a difficult path gaining roles in sports broadcasts beyond studio hosts and sideline reporters. Play-by-play and color jobs remain nearly universally the domain of men. Women traditionally have kind of been accepted into their hosting role, whether or not they were the strongest candidate, because for a long period of time there was just simply the idea that it was enough to look good on television. It didnt necessarily imply somebody being an expert,Ž said Kate Abdo, Foxs start-ofthe-day studio show anchor in Red Square. For women to break into that domain, which traditionally has been very, very male, has been more difficult.Ž Wagner, a national team midfielder from 1998-2008, was a game analyst for Fox at the 2015 Womens World Cup and called 10 of Foxs 48 group-stage telecasts this year from the networks Los Angeles studios, paired with Scottish broadcaster Derek Rae. It wasnt that I set out to end up calling a mens World Cup match, but my path has led me here now and Ill be extremely proud doing it,Ž Wagner said. Hopefully I can prove its about my effort and my work and my passion and my commitment and my love for the game that comes through when I call the match as opposed to it having anything to do with being the first female.ŽHISTORYFrom Page 1
