In the midst of a rainy morning Saturday, a fatal, singlevehicle crash closed the right lane of eastbound S.R. 776. Traf“c backed up near the El Jobean Bridge in Charlotte County. The victim was identi“ed as Travis W. Becker, 48, a Port Charlotte resident, according to Florida Highway Patrol. Charlotte County Fire/ EMS stated he was found with no pulse upon the arrival of paramedics at about 8:30 a.m., and he was the only person involved in the crash. Charlotte County Fire/EMS “rst responded to the scene. FHP was dispatched around 8:56 a.m. to the scene near the intersection of McCall Road and Gillot Boulevard in Port Charlotte, for the singlevehicle wreck. FHP arrived at about 10 a.m., according to their live crash report.

They both have been “red by the man they hope to take the place of, State Attorney Stephen Russell, according to Crowley. However, both Russell and Amira Fox „ Crowleys opponent who Russell endorses „ deny that story. Crowley and Fox will face each other in the Republican primary Aug. 28. Write-in candidate, Joseph Hoffman, has also quali“ed for the race for state attorney in the 20th Judicial Circuit. Fox left the State Attorneys Of“ce in December 2002, shortly before Russell took of“ce in January. She submitted a letter of resignation on Nov. 4, 2002, stating her resignation would be effective Dec. 2. Russell won the primary earlier that year, facing three opponents, one of whom was Foxs direct supervisor, Marshall Bower. She admits to supporting his campaign. A book by her father Taher Dajani, From Palestine to America describes the election this way: When the State Attorney (Joe DAllesandro) decided not to run for re-election after thirty years on the job, his deputy (Marshall Bower), decided to run.

ARCADIA „ Theresa Wheeler, who grew up on a cattle-and-citrus farm her grandparents homesteaded a century ago, says her son is now raising his own sons on that Pine Level farm. Now, however, Wheeler fears Mosaics plan to open a nearly 14,000-acre phosphate mine next door will rip the heart out of their familys rural-DeSoto heritage. The quiet place weve loved for generations will be destroyed,Ž she told the DeSoto County Planning Commission at a public hearing for the mine June 6. The drag lines with their ”ood lights, the trains running across the countryside, the trucks shifting through 10 to 12 gears, this will be going on 24 hours per day, seven days per week.Ž In a 3-2 vote, DeSoto Countys Planning Commission approved a rezoning request from Mosaic last month. The recommendation will be presented to the countys Board of Commissioners from 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday; and 9 a.m. until noon, and 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. Wednesday. This is an area where a coyote can be heard howling for miles,Ž she added. I cant imagine how this is going to affect my son and his neighbors.Ž Wheeler was one of scores of area residents who spoke passionately against Mosaics proposal to have the county rezone the site from lowdensity agriculture (A-10) to phosphate mining. Some warned stormwaters in the ”ood-prone area could cause spills. Some predicted property values will decline. A few reminded the planning commission that Mosaic has been “ned millions of dollars over pollution problems in the past. While the publics opposition might seem overwhelming, much of the testimony was irrelevant, according to both county and Mosaic of“cials. Thats because the county adopted an ordinance earlier this year that mandated hearings on Mosaics proposed mine be considered quasi-judicial.Ž In such hearings, board members are to give greater weight to substantial and competentŽ testimony and evidence. That means testimony from quali“ed experts. Also, the rezoning would merely authorize phosphate mining as a permissible land use. Mosaic would still need to get two additional permits approved before it could begin mining. Those permits, for a master plan and an operating permit, would Mosaic wants to rezone nearly 14,000 acres for miningBy GREG MARTINSUN CORESPONDENT SUN FILE PHOTOS BY ANDREA PRAEGITZERA large dragline in the distance beyond an open and active Mosaic phosphate mine in Hardee County in December of 2017.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia ENGLEWOOD „ Some of the signs protesting lawmakers and political candidates may say let them eat pie while the dolphins and sea turtles die. On Saturday about six business owners joined 35 other locals from the Red Tide Watch Manasota Facebook group and met at the Elsie Quirk Library. They are interested in solutions to persistent red tide and noxious algae blooms they believe are caused by polluted discharged waters in Lake Okeechobee. One way the group plans to garner attention from several lawmakers is to make and hold signs showing dead dolphins, “sh, manatees and sea turtles that washed up on Englewood and Manasota beaches and nearby waterways. The group is planning to protest outside a candidate rally planned from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Robarts Arena, 3000 Ringling Blvd. in Sarasota while many Republican candidates eat pie inside. Candidates running for governor, Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis, plan to be there. Also planning to be there are candidates for city and county commission, attorney general, state senate, state representatives, school board, agriculture commissioner, along with others including Gov. Rick Scott who is running for U.S. Senate. In June, President Donald Trump endorsed DeSantis. U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan also plans to attend. Dan Yoder, who co-led the meeting, said anyone interested in joining a convoy to protest in Sarasota can meet in the Publix parking lot at 9 a.m. on Saturday, located at 55 North Indiana Ave, in Englewood. We need to pay close attention to which candidates are getting money from Big Sugar,Ž he said. We need to speak to as many candidates as possible. Then we need to do our homework and see who is contributing to these campaigns.Ž Meeting organizer Dan Martin said while unclean water is a non-partisan issue, those who are registered as independent voters cannot participate in the primary elections. If you want your voice heard next month, you have to be either a Republican or Democrat,Ž he said, adding the issue is so important, its necessary to approach the problem in a non-confrontational manner, regardless of political preference. Capt. Dave Spargur, a retired local “re“ghter, said his business suffered greatly since the red tide outbreak this summer. I was born and raised here since 1968,Ž Spargur said. I was doing great last year, but Ive had to cancel seven charters in the past month. Its already a slow time, but its not impacting just me, its the restaurants, the guided tours, rentals and others dependent on tourism.Ž Spargur said hes frustrated that some charter captains are still telling their out-of-state customers to keep their reservations here knowing the water smells bad. People arent going to come back if they cant breathe or see dead dolphins on the beach like there was again this morning.Ž Heather Stout works on Palm Island and lives near the beach. She, her children and their dog are all suffering from the red tide stench. Her dog is on a breathing medication. Stout said a guest at a Palm Island rental wrote on a comment card that he was escaping from Alcatraz.Ž It was heart breaking and shocking to hear that from a valued visitor to our area,Ž she said. But it was a reality for them. They were stuck on the island. The water was bad at Englewood and Venice beaches. Its not going to get better on its own.Ž Mark Timchula, known as the Beach Guy for his rental umbrellas and chairs, dealt with the dead dolphin on Englewood Beach before coming to the meeting. He told the crowd of 40 that a woman asked him if he knew what the wormlike creatures with eyes stuck to her granddaughters bathing suit were when she came out of the water. There must have been 100 of them on the bathing suit,Ž he said. A local business owner explained it could be sea lice or microscopic thimble jelly“sh larvae which can cause a rash. The water is not clean and not safe to swim in right now,Ž Yoder said. I told people to get out of the water yesterday.Ž Locals said the health departments need to be more involved in alerting the public of the medical dangers from red tide. They said administrators are turning a blind eye on the issue. Others complained theres no one group leading the charge for changes, awareness and solutions for clean water. Many in the group pledged to email everyone from the health department directors, to commissioners, state reps and the governor. They also plan to have more meetings and eventually become a non-pro“t group. Im just a concerned citizen with a boat at Stump Pass who is upset over how our waterways are mismanaged,Ž Martin said. We have to bombard our elected of“cials and the candidates and explain that our waterways need attention too.Ž Martin said updates will be posted to the Manasota Red Tide Watch Manasota Key Facebook page.Email: Red tide group plans protest over unclean water By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHPeople in the audience were asked if they were local business owners at a clean water/red tide meeting held Saturday at the Elsie Quirk Library.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 HARDEE OFFICIAL SHARES ADVICEPhosphate mining boosts the local economy while the mining is underway. But when the mining is done, the reclaimed site practically becomes an economic ghost town,Ž according to Bill Lambert, Hardee County economic development director. However, his county, largely at his urging as a former commissioner a decade ago, made sure Mosaic Fertilizer LLC and other mining companies contributed substantial funds for economic development upfront, as part of mining approvals, to offset the impacts. Asked if he had any advice for DeSoto County, which is poised to consider its first phosphate mine this month, he said DeSoto should follow Hardees approach. Plan for the closure from the beginning,Ž he said. The DeSoto Commission will decide after a public hearing today and Wednesday whether to approve Mosaics request to rezone some 14,000 acres in the northwest corner of the county from low-density agriculture to phosphate mining. Mosaic would also need a master plan and operating permit before it could open the mine. Mosaic plans to open it in some five years, as Hardees Fort Mead Extension mine plays out, Mosaic officials said this week. Mosaic plans to complete the mining in 15 years, but, historically, mines take longer to close than planned, according to Lambert. Thats because the mining rises and falls along with market fluctuations, he said. Mining began in Hardee in the 1970s and is still going strong. Mosaic is working to expand its South Pasture and Fort Meade mines. And earlier this month, the Hardee commission approved a major special exception that would authorize Mosaics 27,000-acre Ona Mine. Mosaic is awaiting Army Corps of Engineers permits for some of those projects. The first deal to make cash contributions a condition for approval came in 2008 when Mosaic agreed to pay $42million over 10 years. The industrial authority received its first installment under that deal in 2011, Lambert said. The authority used some of the money to build a 264-acre commerce park. Some funds were also used to finance business startups, with mixed results. The county also secured an agreement from the now-defunct CF Industries to pay $10million for educational and training facilities in exchange for approval for the South Pasture mine. For the Ona Mine, the commission negotiated for another $2million per year guaranteed and an additional amount tied to the fluctuations of the phosphate market. That deal, which remains pending Mosaic approval, could net some $87million over the 25-year life of the mine. The funds are for further industrial development, Lambert said. State and federal agencies also negotiated a settlement over a mining infraction against a predecessor of Mosaic in which the mine company created lakes and donated the site to Hardee County. That site is now Hardee Lakes Park. It is a beautiful example of reclamation, but its one that cannot occur very frequently because of other environmental constraints the mining companies have to comply with,Ž Lambert said. Mosaic is currently emerging from a market downturn that saw net revenues drop from nearly $1 billion to around $250million in recent years, according to a Mosaic report. Meanwhile, Hardee Countys economy has remained flat,Ž Lambert said. In fact, Hardee is one of only eight Florida counties that lost population, at a rate of -1.1 percent, over the past seven years, according to the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. DeSoto grew by 2.2 percent, Charlotte by 8 percent and Polk by 9.9 percent during that period, from 2010 to 2017, according to BEBR. A big factor in Hardees negative population growth is that a big chunk of land, some 140,000 acres, is tied up as phosphate mines, Lambert said. No one seems interested in developing home sites on those lands, he said. Also, the agricultural productivity of those lands is greatly reducedŽ even after reclamation, he said. (Phosphate companies) say these lands are reclaimed, but thats by rule. Somebody really needs to look at the productivity pre-mining and post-mining,Ž he said. Another factor that hammered Hardee had nothing to do with phosphate. It was citrus greening, he said. Hardee and DeSoto could be twinsŽ in their heritage, he said. Both are inland counties that share the Peace River, both have economies based on citrus and cattle, and, perhaps soon, both will have phosphate mining. However, the amount of mining in Hardee far exceeds the 23,000 acres envisioned in DeSoto, he noted. Also, DeSoto can expect to see residential development increase because if its proximity to coastal Charlotte County, where the economy is booming, he said. Mosaic plans to employ some 250 at its DeSoto mine, and some nearby businesses could expect to sprout up to serve the miners. But, those jobs go away when the minings done. Its the same scenario that created ghost townsŽ out west, he pointed out. Dont wait until the mining is done and then have a knee-jerk reaction and say, Oh, what have we done?Ž Lambert warned. „ By Charlotte Sun Correspondent Greg Martin regulate how the mining would be conducted to minimize impacts. Because the rezoning wouldnt automatically initiate mining, comments about mining impacts are not relevant to the rezoning, according to Mosaic. And County Development Director Earl Hahn agreed with that argument, in a staff report recommending the rezoning be approved. Expert testimony should also be given greater weight when the County Commission considers the rezoning July 2425, according to Hahn. Although the public is encouraged to provide input, the commission will be advised to make its decision based only on substantial, competent and relevant testimony, he said. Both he and County Attorney Donald Conn advised the planning commission to base its decision not on emotion, but on whether Mosaics proposal complies with 15 criteria for rezoning in the countys zoning procedure. Some of the criteria does not seem appropriate for a phosphate mining rezoning because it either pertains to residential development or to impacts that could stem from phosphate operations, which would be addressed by the separate mining permits, Hahn said in an interview last week. For example, one criteria suggests the rezoning could be denied if it would create an adverse in”uence on living conditions such as noise, dust, light pollution or traf“c congestion. Hahns report points out the rezoning does not authorize mining so no such impacts will result. However, the report also notes that in Mosaics application for the other permits it includes a traf“c study that shows traf“c from the mine will only amount to 5 percent of the capacity of State Road 70, which is the main road to the mine site. Mosaic also plans to have eight trains cross State Road 70 each day. They will hold up traf“c for 10 minutes each. Although that will pose a major inconvenience,Ž the train crossing wont create either congestion or unsafe conditions on the nowrural two-lane road, Hahn concluded. Another criteria suggests a rezoning could be rejected if the propertys owner would be able to use his or her property under its existing zoning. Mosaic now uses its land for agricultural purposes, but it contains valuable minerals that Mosaic would not be able to extract unless the property were to be rezoned. So Mosaics proposal complies with that criteria, Hahn states. Another criteria suggests rezonings could be rejected if they pose drainage impacts. Hahns report again points out the rezoning will not create a drainage problem because the rezoning does not authorize mining and related activities.Ž However, the report also notes that Mosaic has already received a state permit that prohibits impacts. Thats proof the company will comply with drainage requirements, the report states. Geri Waksler, attorney for Mosaic, also emphasized at the hearing that Mosaic in April 2017 obtained its Environmental Resource Permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. By de“nition, that suggests Mosaic will not cause adverse impacts to water resources. Youve heard a tremendous amount of public testimony about phosphate mining and why it should not be permitted in DeSoto County,Ž Waksler told the commission. But, as Mr. Conn just said, were not here today to decide whether to allow phosphate mining in DeSoto County. Its a public hearing to decide whether to zone land in which phosphate mining would be a permitted use, and where agriculture would be a continuing permitted use.Ž She added that Mosaics experts and evidence proved the mine would comply with DeSotos comprehensive plan and land development codes. You have heard no expert testimony to the contrary,Ž she said. The planning commission ultimately voted 3-2 to recommend the County Commission approve the rezoning. Percy Angelo of Placida, who sits on the Charlotte Harbor Group of the Sierra Club, said in an interview Thursday she thinks all 15 of the DeSoto Countys rezoning criteria are relevant to phosphate mining impacts, so testimony about those impacts is relevant. The argument that phosphate mining impacts dont count in a rezoning hearing I think is incorrect,Ž she said. Angelo said the mine poses multiple concernsŽ for people downstream. She pointed out Mosaic plans to surround large sections of the mine with a ditch and a berm in order to capture all the rain that falls on the site until the mine is reclaimed. That means the water no longer gets to the larger system, which is the Peace River,Ž she said. That reduces salinity levels in the Charlotte Harbor estuary, and that affects wildlife, she said. Angelo also pointed out the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority provides water from the Peace River to four counties and a city. Mining puts that waters quality at risk, despite Mosaics efforts to comply with permit requirements, she said. She pointed out some spills have occurred in the past. Glenn Compton, director of Manasota-88, noted that Mosaic is also currently mining on two similar mines in Hardee County and is working to get permits for third, the 27,000acre Ona Mine. The immense size of whats proposed will de“nitely have impacts on water resources downstream for decades if not centuries to come,Ž he said. Compton worries that county staffs dont have adequate resources to fully review such projects before approving them. State and federal governments have streamlined their reviews in recent years, he said. Thats one reason why its important for the public to raise issues during public hearings. We cannot assume they understand all the potential impacts phosphate mining could have on their county,Ž Compton said. Mosaic also owns 9,000 acres next to the 14,000-acre site set to be rezoned. The 9,000-acre tract was rezoned for phosphate mining in 1981, when the site was owned by Amax, according to Mosaic of“cials. In 2010, DeSoto County adopted a general phosphate mining overlay district that encompasses the entire Mosaic site. The intent was to limit future phosphate mining only to that area, according to Hahns staff report. Mosaic “led applications for all three of its county permits in December of 2016. In other mining counties, commissions have held a single hearing to consider all three. However, in DeSoto, the county administrator, attorney and development director decided to “rst take up the rezoning separately, Hahn said. The goal was to avoid overloading commissioners and give the public more input opportunities, he said. We didnt feel (one hearing) was an appropriate way to go because it seemed like shoving everything down their throats at once,Ž he said. The county expects to consider the other permits next year, he said. Mosaic is also awaiting a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for wetlands and wildlife impacts. Some residents have warned that granting a rezoning will vest Mosaic with the right to mine. Hahn, however, noted a county code states a rezoning does not guarantee a particular project will be approved. Several residents told stories of ”oods in the area of the mine site, which includes Horse Creek, a major Peace River tributary. One resident said during Hurricane Irma, a couple of creeks topped their banks and merged together. Andy Mele, the Suncoast Waterkeeper, in testimony to the planning commission, said the proposed mine plan shows a clay settling area that seems to have been plopped with diabolical accuracy right on top of Buzzard Roost and Brandy Branch,Ž which are Horse Creek tributaries. Mele, who has a masters degree in environmental science from Bard College, warned the clay settling areas, which are “lled with a crud, like pudding,Ž disrupt natural hydrology and pose a threat of spills during ”oods. Mele encouraged the commission to consider mining impacts despite advice to the contrary from the county attorney. The literalist interpretation by Mosaic, (and) by your staff: it may be technically reasonable and logical ƒ but it is not compelling,Ž he said. Rezoning is going to open the door for mining.Ž Mele is one of several area environmental advocates who have “led reports within a county two-week deadline to testify as experts at the commissions July 24-25 hearing. Waksler has also submitted a report within the deadline. In that report, a real estate expert concludes land values near mines in Hardee County are higher than values for land far away from mines.MOSAICFROM PAGE 1 SUN FILE PHOTO BY ANDREA PRAEGITZERMosaic has multiple processing plants where fertilizer products are produced, along with beneciation plants where mined phosphate is separated from other materials.

For many years she belonged to the Bird Key Yacht Club. Her greatest passion in life was sailing. The happiest years of her life were the time she and Gil spent traveling all over the Caribbean in their vessel Moondancer. Beverly had a talent for writing and sent amazing travelogues to friends and family describing her adventures. Bev was adventurous, funny, classy, assertive and larger than life in so many ways. At the age of 80 she was still rollerblading and enjoying every minute of it. She leaves a void in the lives of her family that can never be “lled. They take solace in the belief she is now at peace and happy sailing with Gil on the other side of the horizon. Beverly is survived by her 3 children: Melinda Downes of Nokomis, Bonnie Volney (husband Peter Bertinelli) of Port Charlotte, and Gordon Parry of Boston. She had 6 wonderful grandchildren: Kelly Downes Comer, Kate Downes Richardson, Casey Downes Ware, Shane Volney, Myka Volney Meier, and Bron Volney, as well as 8 greatgrandchildren. She loved her family with all her heart. She was preceded in death by the love of her life, C. Gilbert Collingwood. In keeping with Bevs wishes a private family service and burial at sea will take place at a later date. Donations in her name can be made to the Alzheimers Association, at 800-272-3900.

John earned his BS from FSU in 1964 where he met and married Margay Blasingame Grose. A daughter, Clarissa Margaret Elizabeth Grose, was subsequently born of that union. Completing his MBA in 1965, John won a Teaching Fellowship to the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.

Bill was born in December of 1946, to the late Herbert and Elizabeth Van Pelt, in Martinsville, Ohio, where he grew up in the Methodist faith. After many years farming, Bill went to work with Airborne Express, retiring after 25 years, as an Area Manager. Bill and his loving wife of 38 years, Linda, moved from Wilmington, Ohio, to Port Charlotte in 2008. Floridas warm sunny climate and abundant waters suited his love of boating, “shing, and the many outdoor activities he enjoyed with his family, especially his kids. He loved having a good time, and always had a smile. With great sadness he leaves behind his beloved wife, Linda; daughters, Andrea (Chad Karr) of New Port Richey, Florida, and Cristal Osborne (William Moore) of Independence, Kentucky; a son, Christopher Osborne (Alexis Caplinger) of Blue Ash, Ohio; grandsons, Zachary Osborne of Ohio, Kaleb and Samuel Karr of Florida; one granddaughter, Charissa Harris of Kentucky; two sisters, Sue Chase (Andrew) of Tennessee, and Kay Martin (Larry) of Ohio; many beloved Kathleen Ann LapcinskiKathleen Ann (Mintline) Lapcinski was born Aug. 1, 1942, in Saginaw, Michigan to Edward and Marion Mintline. She spent her early years in Traverse City, Michigan, later moving to Adrian, Michigan, attending both Adrian Catholic Central High School and Siena Heights University. Upon earning her Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, she began a long and accomplished professional career in healthcare and hospital administration. Shortly after moving to Flint, Michigan she met a charming high school teacher, Clarence Lapcinski, who shared her love of dancing. They married in 1966 and remained dancing partners for over 50 years. Kathleen and Clarence moved to Grand Blanc, Michigan to raise their two boys and enjoyed family vacations, camping, hiking, and exploring the natural wonders of North America. She also cherished time spent with loved ones and friends at the family cabin on the bank of the AuSable River. Kathleen always valued intellectual challenge, breaking new ground and continually learning. She spent the majority of her career at St. Joseph Hospital, Flint Michigan and Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, Michigan. While working full-time and raising a family, she earned her Master of Health Administration from Central Michigan University, pioneered new approaches to family health medicine management and was instrumental in establishing the Genesys Family Health Center program. She was very active with her community, family and friends, serving on multiple community organization boards, singing in her church choir, tutoring youth and adults and playing in numerous Bridge, Pinochle and Euchre groups. Kathleens relocation to Punta Gorda upon retirement did not diminish her drive to give to her local community. She soon found herself organizing entertainment and travel excursions for her senior community where she also served as Treasurer and later, Vice President of the Eagle Point Homeowners Association. Her passion for adventure with family and friends was a de“ning characteristic throughout her life. She developed a love for kayaking with her son, Mark, embarked solo to Belize to visit a close friend, tackled indoor skydiving in her late sixties, and marked her 50th wedding anniversary completing her goal to visit all “fty states with a family trip to Alaska. Kathleen was a loving and dedicated person, often going to great lengths to keep her commitments. She faced death with courage and dignity, passing away surrounded by family after a 19-year battle with liver disease. We will miss her dearly and will remember her with much love, admiration and affection. Kathleen is survived by her husband of nearly 52 years, Clarence; two children, Mark and Matthew; granddaughter, Elle; siblings, Edward, Mary Margaret, Margie, and Deborah; and many friends.

I wish I could say I have spent a similar amount of time talking with crime victims about their own rights, but unfortunately victims lack any clear, enforceable constitutional protections. Imagine telling a mother the law considers the rights of her sons murderer more important than her own, or that a rapist has stronger legal protections than the person he or she sexually assaulted. Thankfully, this could soon change. In November, Floridians will have the chance to provide crime victims with constitutional rights through Amendment 6, also known as Marsys Law. Amendment 6 guarantees victims have rights equal to those accused of a crime, such as the right to information, the right to be heard and the right to be treated with fairness. The criminal justice system is set up to balance the interests of the state with the person accused or convicted of a crime. But, an important component is missing: the victim. As a law enforcement of“cer, I “rmly believe those accused of a crime are entitled to their Sixth Amendment protections „ but I also believe we can uphold those rights while providing victims with constitutional protections, too. Marsys Law will bring much-needed equality to the criminal justice system. I will be voting for Amendment 6, and I encourage you to do the same.Bill Prummell Punta GordaEditor: If you think you are living in an alternate reality, you are not alone. As Americans, we just watched our president criticize our intelligence community and took the word of Putin that the Russians did not interfere in our democracy. Where are those patriotic Americans today and why do we not hear from Editor: There has been a great deal of discussion about the 39% conviction rate by the area prosecutors of“ce. Unfortunately for the people of Southwest Florida, this “gure is accurate. The State Attorneys Of“ce for the 20th Judicial Circuit only successfully prosecuted just 39 percent of those arrested for the “scal year of 2015 to 2016. As the former information technology coordinator at the State Attorneys of“ce for the 20th Judicial Circuit, I am uniquely familiar with the statistics and data related to arrests and adjudications of guilty. The data regarding the State Attorneys Of“ce 2016 conviction rate, where we compared criminal arrests to formal adjudications of guilt was provided by the Florida Of“ce of State Court Administration (published reports), the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (published reports) as well as con“rmed by detailed data spreadsheets Editor: I “nd it very interesting that politicians, who supposedly work for the people, have taken it upon themselves to ban the smoking of medical marijuana. This is far better than opioid addiction that is destroying our country. Who is the government to decide right from wrong? Doctors and scientists have proven that marijuana is an effective remedy for pain, glaucoma, seizures, and many other ailments. Many people with these ailments cant afford the costs associated with vaping. It is far less expensive to use the smokable form. The hypocrisy of these politicians to defy the constitutional amendment which was approved by 72 percent of our voters is reprehensible. Based upon their de“nition of morality, all liquor stores, bars and pharmacies should be closed and opiates and liquor be administered without swallowing. I challenge these moralists to never imbibe alcohol or use opiates for pain.Alan Glassman Punta GordaEditor: As a U.S. Navy vet and lifelong student of history, I am appalled at the affront to our democracy. If one takes a good look at history, it is apparent that this president has not. His declaration that our longtime ally (Canada) burned the White House during the War of 1812 shows his ignorance. One only has to look back to see how a previous leader hoodwinked an entire continent. It seems we are possibly headed down the same path. Attempts to discredit the media, division of families, constant lies, edicts from above, etc, etc. We must all get out and vote this November. Only we can stop this madman. Power to the people. With all that is happening, I have adopted a new personal saying: Drain the swamp...“ll the sewer.Monty Birdsey Port CharlotteEditor: They used to mention that the contaminated water ”owing down the Caloosahatchee River from Lake Okeechobee was Editor: A tax by any other name. Of course Im talking about the non ad valorem portion of your property tax bill. Everyone needs to prioritize a visit with their commissioner(s); perhaps, while you are paying off your tax bill. Lets get rid of MSBUs forever „ as early as this summer. Did you know . Each of the 78 authorized MSBUs is directly controlled by the citizens of this county. Whatever happened to representative government in a free democratic republic? Presently the MSBU accounts have a surplus of $300 million? Many MSBU assessments continue to be collected (much like a toll booth) long after the designated project has been paid in full. Each MSBU has an exorbitant administration cost built into the cost, up to almost half the taxes collected, which is not included in the county budget. This immoral and unjust scheme further extends to disabled veterans and nonpro“t organizations, who are also tax exempt. Many of these worthy organizations greatly struggle every year to pay thousands of dollars in oppressive non ad valorem assessments. This taxing scheme unlawfully and immorally goes against over 200 years of multiple and repeated legal precedence, which acknowledges that Yahweh (Jesus) alone is the one and only true Sovereign over His Church and is therefore not subject to any authority! Churches are exempt and immune from every taxing authority in the land including sales taxes, municipal fees, “nes, etc.Rev. Bob McDue ElJobeanIts past time to develop City MarketplaceOUR POSITION: Its time for Punta Gorda to think outside the box and make something happen with the long-vacant City Marketplace property.There is a $9.4 million hole in the heart of Punta Gorda. That is the asking price for the 5-or-so-long-dormant acres „ called City Marketplace „ in the middle of town. For years, private citizens, developers and City Council members have debated its fate. On two or three occasions someone actually produced plans „ complete with sketches „ of their idea to “ll in the barren lots. Blame it on a failure to capture the imagination of council members, a lack of money, zoning restrictions that choked developers bottom line, but nothing has worked, so far. I think the property has to become something that creates synergy downtown,Ž said Nick Nemec, a partner in Edgewater Events LLC, which produces concerts and other happeningsŽ at City Marketplace. Nemecs popular shows „ FunkFest is the biggest „ are proof that people will swarm to Punta Gorda for the right attraction. A “ve-day circus will be the next promotion Nemec offers the public. Its set for October. If he were a richer man, no doubt Nemec might cherish the idea of turning City Marketplace into the type of venue we envision. That would be a lot of open space „ a park „ surrounded by specialty shops, more restaurants and maybe a dance club. We can even imagine an amphitheater. The roadblock is money. First you have the $9.4 million price and then the cost of building whatever you build,Ž Nemec pointed out. That would be another $10-$15 million. I dont know where the money would come from. And, it would take a long time to make that money back.Ž The property is owned by Lely Development Corporation of Naples, Florida. Its president, Joe Boff, knows he is setting on a gold mine. Everyone who has expressed interest in the property says they need to (build higher),Ž said Bruce Laishley, a former part-owner of the land before selling it to Lely. And even if you get a variance to build higher, people are (skeptical) because anyone can go to court and object to the variance. Punta Gordas code says a variance can be granted for hardship. But the citys de“nition of a hardship is vague.Ž Laishley proposed that until the city changes its code, there will be no buyers „ even though he suggested that Punta Gorda is a hotŽ destination for developers and hoteliers right now. Boff is just waiting for the right offer. I have had some conversations,Ž he said. But nothing in writing. Ive been asking for more building height. You have to have residents to do business.Ž We believe there has to be a way to make it happen „ and not necessarily by raising the building height There are rumors of a potential public/private partnership. That may be a great way to raise the money if the parties can agree on the scope of the development and what works best for the city. We would love to see a park where music could be played late at night „ unlike Laishley where the music dies at 10 p.m. because of an agreement with nearby condo owners. Its time for the city to step up efforts to reach out for partners „ even beyond Florida. Theres a hole in its heart that needs “lling. all those Republican leaders who swore an oath to America and its people to protect the constitution, our democracy and Americas leadership in the world. Unfortunately what I see today is American democracy being ripped apart all because of a president who will not acknowledge the truth that the Russians did meddle in our election. This is a president who is much more comfortable with dictators and autocrats than with our allies who have been with us for the last 70 years. The day will come when America will need those allies and I just hope they can forget what this president has done. I chose to become an American citizen and was proud to do so and I still believe in what America stands for throughout the world. But I cannot, and will not, support a president who undermines our laws and institutions and spreads hate. One needs only to go outside America and see how we are perceived by our friends and allies. I was willing to give Mr. Trump an opportunity to prove me wrong and show he could lead and bring our country together. Unfortunately he is everything I thought.George Baillie North Portshared by the Lee County Clerk of Court and Charlotte County Clerk of Court. According to the Florida Of“ce of State Court Administration, the total number of arrests in the “ve county Judicial Circuit of Southwest Florida for “scal year of 2015-2016, totaled 46,122, yet the same of“ce reported total adjudications of guilt of only 18,025. The data clearly shows a 2015-2016 “ve-county circuit conviction rates of 39 percent. Some have called this factual data and information a lieŽ for political reasons, but the data provided by the Florida Of“ce of State Court Administrator (published reports), FDLE (published reports) and con“rmed by two clerks of“ces are not in question. A 39 percent conviction rate for the prosecutors of“ce from 2016 is indisputable.Guy Smith Fort Myersphosphates and algae caused by Big Sugar and farm fertilizer.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINT Its ironic that with all the wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth concerning Russias attempts to meddle and prevent the American people from participating in a fair election, that our own Florida government would cynically manipulate the Primary Election laws to disenfranchise a majority of our population from participating in selected primary races. And it is done in such a shadowy, convoluted process that most of you who are prevented from voting are not even aware of it. I refer speci“cally to the ongoing contentious contest for the State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit between Amira Fox and Chris Crowley, both Republicans „ a bitter “ght well documented in the news media. What you dont know, and it makes all the difference in the world, is that there is a third candidate, a write-in, a shadowy faux candidate. Fort Myers attorney Joseph P. Hoffman is also on the ballot,Ž though his name will not appear anywhere on it. And over 55 percent of Charlotte County voters will be denied their right to vote in that contest. Heres how the scam works. Like I said, its a bit convoluted so bear with me. Florida conducts a closed primary, meaning that each political party selects their candidate to represent them in the Nov. 6 General Election. Only registered members of the Democratic Party are allowed to vote for the Democrat candidates. Same for the Republican Party. A closed primary prevents members from an opposing political party from skewing the vote in order to elect a candidate less likely to win in the General Election. Those voters who choose to not be associated with a political party, identi“ed as NPA or No Political Af“liation, are not permitted to vote in those races which are choosing a party candidate, and their ballot will show only those non-partisan contests, such as school boards, judges, etc. It is a fair way to conduct a primary and a process I enthusiastically endorse. So far, so good. A person can qualify to be a candidate in three different ways. He or she can submit a required number of petitions signed by supporters; he or she can pay a substantial fee, based on the salary of the of“ce being sought, both of which will secure his or her name and political af“liation on the ballot. Or … and here is where we “nd the snake in the grass „ he or she can simply, without any effort, fee, or a single petition, “le with the Supervisor of Elections Of“ce, a form that will list the person as a write-in candidate. The name will not appear on the ballot; only a blank line labeled write in candidate.Ž But now we come to the cynical, convoluted process that can strip you of your right to vote in certain contests, and it is happening in this Primary Election. In our closed primary system, if only two or more candidates from the same party are running, then everyone, regardless of political af“liation will get to vote in the contest. If, for example, there are only three Republican candidates running for sheriff, then everyone gets to vote in that race. The reason is that the winner of that contest will win the of“ce and that race wont even appear on the November ballot. Nothing could be more fair than that. But if anyone from a different political party, or no party at all, enters the contest, then the contest is closed to anyone outside that party af“liation. The State Attorney contest is a case in point. When Fox and Crowley, both Republicans, were the only candidates in the race, their names would have appeared on the ballot of every one of the 132,553 registered voters in Charlotte County and we would all have a chance to vote our choice. But when Hoffman submitted a form declaring his candidacy, and, unlike the other candidates, there was no effort, no fee and no petitions, he closed the race to only Republican voters thereby disenfranchising 73,120 non-Republican voters in Charlotte County. He is a faux candidate, does not actively campaign, has not reported any contributions, reports no expenditures, his name will not even be on the ballot, and, like other faux write-in candidates of past elections, he will probably quietly drop out of the contest after the Primary. Hes there simply to close the race. To deny you your right to vote. So what can you do? In the short term, if you think this is an important contest or you just want to protest this inequity by rattling a few cages, you can change your party af“liation to RepublicanŽ anytime between now and July 29. After that date the Charlotte County voter polls are closedŽ for the August Primary. And, of course, after the Primary it doesnt make a bit of difference what your political af“liation is for the General Election in November. If you want to change your party af“liation, you must submit a new voter registration application, available on-line or at the Supervisor of Elections of“ce. You may also submit a signed written notice that contains your date of birth or your voter registration number. You may mail, fax, or email this notice to the Supervisor of Election. Then the day after the Primary switch back as you were. Its easy. Dont let the politicians in Tallahassee rob you of your right to vote! In the long term, you can write your legislator in Tallahassee expressing your displeasure at this shameful manipulation of your right to a fair election, demanding this cynical loophole in our election law be closed. How to close the loophole? Simple. A write-in candidate cannot close a primary election. Period. Register and vote. It matters! Robert Hardy is a resident of Port Charlotte and a veteran poll worker.55 percent of voters silenced in this race Guest ColumnRobert Hardy ŽThis human nature is shabby stuff, as you may know from introspection.Ž „ Peter De VriesOr from reading the public letter of admonitionŽ sent by the U.S. Senates Select Committee on Ethics to Robert Menendez, the Democratic incumbent seeking a third full term representing New Jersey. Nationwide, Democrats are defending 26 Senate seats, Republicans; only nine. Five Democratic incumbents are running in states that 21 months ago experienced Donald Trump swoons: He won Missouri by 18.6 points, Indiana by 19.2, Montana by 20.4, North Dakota by 35.7, West Virginia by 42.1. In New Jersey, which Hillary Clinton carried by 14.1 points, Menendez was supposed to be safe. The Republicans most recent presidential victory in New Jersey was in 1988. In the subsequent seven elections, the Democratic presidential candidates average margin of victory was almost 13 points. This state last elected a Republican senator (Clifford Case) in 1972. This 46-year drought might end in November. Robert Hugin, 63, grew up in blue-collar Union City, as did Menendez, with whom Hugin served as student representatives to the local board of education. Hugin became the “rst in his family to graduate from college (Princeton), served 14 years in the Marine Corps (his two sons are now of“cers), then went into business, rising to run a pharmaceutical company. This sin, although scarlet in the overheated public mind, might be less so than Menendezs transgressions detailed in the letter. With hilarious understatement, James Madison, who was not known for hilarity, said, Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.Ž A unanimous Senate ethics committee (three Republicans, three Democrats) in its April 26 letter to Menendez said: By this letter, you are hereby severely admonished.Ž Menendez, the letter said, brought discredit upon the SenateŽ by the following: Over a six-year period,Ž Menendez knowingly and repeatedly accepted gifts of signi“cant valueŽ from a friend (an ophthalmologist who, the letter did not say, is currently appealing a 17-year sentence for $73 million of fraudulent Medicare billings). The gifts included air travel on private and commercial ”ights, a luxury hotel stay in Paris (the committees letter is demurely silent about Menendezs accompanying girlfriend) and 19 visits to a Dominican Republic villa. He neither publicly reported, nor received written permission for, these gifts. In addition, the committee said, Menendez improperly intervened with federal agencies with persistent advocacyŽ for his friends business interests. New Jersey Democrats „ they outnumber Republicans by nearly 900,000 „ powered Menendez to a 19-point victory six years ago. In last months primary, however, his opponent won 37.8 percent of the vote while spending next to nothing „ not enough to require “ling any “nancial statement. In October he was underwater, 19-59, in a poll about whether he deserves re-election. Today, polls show Menendez with small single-digit leads, but Hugins brass-knuckle ads are saying things like this: (President) Obamas Justice Department said (Menendez) belongs in jail.Ž The department brought a 14-count felony corruption indictment, which resulted in a nearly three-month trial that did not convict Menendez. The government then decided against a new prosecution. Hugin might be hindered by the Republican tax cut, which limited the deductibility on federal income taxes of state and local tax payments. This particularly hurts residents of high-tax blue states such as this one. The 10 percent of New Jersey voters affected are affected substantially because property taxes are very high. Hugin says that New Jersey ranks 50th among the states in the high ratio of money sent to Washington compared to the money Washington sends back. He notes that the state has suffered from the out-migration of high earners. (One, who a few years ago decamped to income-tax-free Florida, had been sending hundreds of millions a year to Trenton.) The fastest rate of out-migration is among those ages 18 to 34. The state leads the nation in the percentage of young adults living with their parents „ a nightmare for both sides of the transaction. Most New Jersey voters get their news from New York and Philadelphia television stations that pay minimal attention to the state, and many New Jersey newspapers, experiencing resource constraints common to the industry everywhere, have reduced power to broadly inform. So, Hugin must pay for the dissemination of information about Menendezs many departures from Senate standards. This election will test whether voters think that being a luridly indiscreet (this is a discreet way of describing Menendezs behavior) senator is less objectionable than Hugins guilt of association with the pharmaceutical industry whose products help to give millions of people suf“cient longevity and vitality to nurse grievances against the products prices.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 campaign outside urban centers. After taking of“ce the new State Attorney began a major sweep in senior staff positions appointing new attorneys who were close to him. He asked Amira to resign. Soon she was offered a job at a new law “rm in Fort Myers, switching from being a state prosecutor to a defense attorney.Ž This week, Fox denied she had ever been asked to resign. She instead said Russell met with everyone on executive staff, including her, as she was head of the Collier County of“ce at the time. Russell discussed that he would be changing over the executive staff,Ž and with that in mind, Fox chose to go into private practice. There was nothing unfriendly about it,Ž she said. It was very amicable, but I decided at that point, it would be better for my career if I went to do private practice and learn the other side of the criminal justice system.Ž She and Russell remained friends throughout her time in private practice, she said, eventually leading him to ask her to return to the of“ce as deputy chief assistant in 2012, overseeing the homicide unit, economic crimes unit, and special cases such as public corruption and police shootings. It was a huge compliment to me that he thought highly enough of me in both roles that he would consider me for one of the highest positions at the State Attorneys Of“ce,Ž she said. A statement issued by Stephen Russells spokesperson Samantha Syoen describes events the same way, stating Russell met with executive staff to discuss future plans for the of“ce, at which time Fox chose to leave the of“ce. She had already entered private practice when he took over in January, the statement notes. Steve Russell had great respect for Amira when they worked together at the State Attorneys Of“ce under State Attorney Joe DAlessandro,Ž the statement reads. That respect only grew over the ensuing years while she engaged in a very successful private practice. This admiration and appreciation for Amira as an attorney and as a person led him to approach her in early 2012 and offer her a leadership position at the SAO.Ž The statement goes on to praise Foxs work over the past six years as deputy chief assistant and now as the chief assistant state attorney. It said that Fox is clearly the most quali“ed candidate.Ž Chris Crowley believes the two are not being entirely truthful, and stated Russell was furiousŽ with Fox for campaigning full time for Marshall Bower in 2002. Its clear to me Mr. Russell “red her because he was unhappy with her constantly campaigning for the chosen successor, and now shes doing it again,Ž he said, referring to an ethics complaint “led by Lee County Attorney Dan Endrizal to the Florida Ethics Commission. Filed in December, the complaint states during 2017 and possibly part of 2016, Fox attended dozens of political and community events throughout the 20th Judicial Circuit of Florida, many of them while being a paid State employee during regular business hours, in an effort to further her undeclared campaign for State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit.Ž Crowley indicated Fox already had her eye on State Attorney when she came back to the of“ce in 2012, describing her return as a backroom deal.Ž I believe that Amira was gearing up four years ago to run against Steve Russell, but a backroom deal was made,Ž he said. By email Friday, Fox states she takes annual leave whenever she attends any campaign functions or does any campaign business. The ethics complaint “led against me was “led by my opponents close friend and is absolutely baseless and false,Ž she said. I never considered running against Mr. Russell and that claim is also baseless and false as are all my opponents claims.Ž Speaking with the Sun earlier in the week, she described her decision to return to the of“ce as a return to her true loveŽ of prosecuting. As I got toward the latter half of my career, I think this is what I wanted to do,Ž she said. I have never regretted for a moment going back. Its been a wonderful six years being deputy chief assistant and now chief assistant and thus leading me to, when Mr. Russell said he was going to retire, leading me to say, all right. Its time. This is going to be my last stop here for me to complete my service to the citizens.Ž Crowley is an attorney with a Fort Myers private practice and Lt. Col. in the Army Reserve Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps.

A sand spit is considered a narrow point of sandy land that projects into the water. Elsewhere on Knight and Don Pedro islands, very few dead sh were scattered along the shorelines. The dead sh were presumably aected by red tide, according to information from Brenda Bossman, who is the state permit holder overseeing volunteer sea turtle nesting patrols on Knight and Don Pedro islands south of Stump Pass.Dead fish line sand near Stump Pass accord ing to Charlotte County Fire/EMS and FHP reports. The area was thick with mangroves and other vegetation, which partially hid the wreckage and other signs of the crash. The vehicle came to rest upside down in a shallow pool of water and appeared to be completely totaled. According to FHP, it was a 1995 Dodge Ram, though the car was so damaged it was hard to note a make or model from the scene. It is unclear how fast Becker was traveling prior to hitting the guardrail, which was completely smashed through. The vehicle appeared to come to a stop quite some ways from the initial crash point. Authorities said it was unclear if Becker was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Heavy rain and lightning in the area delayed efforts to immediately retrieve Beckers body and vehicle from the ditch. Tow-trucks and State Trooper cars were parked along the road with their lights ”ashing. When the weather “nally let up to a light drizzle, a “retruck arrived and authorities were able to pull him up to the sidewalk. At the scene, traf“c slowed to a near standstill as motorists looked on. Closer to the intersection, a second accident „ seemingly caused by a combination of rubbernecking and lane closure „ blocked another portion of the road. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce responded to that incident and worked quickly to move the involved vehicles onto the median. The accident appeared to be only a fender-bender with no injuries. The crash investigation is still ongoing,Ž said FHP in a press release late Saturday afternoon on the fatal crash. It is not yet certain if the driver was wearing a seat belt, or if the driver was under the in”uence of any controlled substance/alcohol,Ž the release stated.Email: CRASHFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY KAYLA GLEASONFirst responders attempt to pull the victims body from a watery ditch. On a rainy Saturday, a vehicle crashed through a guardrail parallel to eastbound S.R. 776. FROM PAGE ONEWhile busy on the campaign trail, Democratic candidates for a variety of state and local offices gathered at Harbour Heights Park in Port Charlotte. The event, Politics in the Park,Ž drew in hundreds of locals interested in getting to know those racing a little bit more. This is an amazing turnout for Charlotte County and a great opportunity for people to get more involved,Ž said Indivisible Southwest Florida member, Michele Moe. Guests included gubernatorial candidates Chris King and Philip Levine, Florida State Senate runner Olivia Babis and Attorney General hopeful Sean Shaw. Im running for Attorney General because its the best office. You can do the most good with the least interference,Ž Shaw said. The campaign has been going great. Ive been going all over the state, meeting people and getting my goals out there. The numbers look really good, even against the Republican candidates.Ž The runners stressed the importance of visiting counties like Charlotte that tend to vote red. Most registered voters in Charlotte County are Republican, with 59,482, as compared to 36,316 Democrats, and 36,824 who are registered as othersŽ according to information from the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections website. I had a stop in Pinellas, then Sarasota, then here because we just cant keep losing these areas by huge margins,Ž said King, feeling encouraged by a recent gubernatorial debate. These are the moments, these are the issues where we need a Democrat for governor.Ž Another major message of the event was the desire to achieve universal goals through bipartisanship. Candidates noted that many Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike are looking outside of their parties at potential office-holders. The attitude is always us against them but we need to come together for the greater good,Ž Debbie Reynolds said of Americas dueling party system. Reynolds is the mother-in-law of School Board District 1 hopeful, Cara Reynolds. Babis was one candidate hoping to highlight common ground. I have a different perspective than everybody else. Disability overlaps with a lot of the problems seniors and veterans are experiencing and I think people can relate to some of the challenges Ive faced in my life,Ž she said. The issues are all interconnected. When a legislator fails to address them, all taxpayers end up paying.Ž The Charlotte County Democrats organized and led the event. We made it our mission to reach out and bring our message to as many people as possible. We know theres a misconception about what Democrats believe and this is one way we can show the community what we stand for, Ž said Patrick Hurley, Chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee. Politics in the Park was the brainchild of Betty Gissendanner, though she was unable to make it. Kelly Shearin, who is only 19 years old, chaired the event. I was an intern during the 2016 Clinton campaign, I came back the next summer and here I am again. Charlotte County is often disregarded when it comes to our party but there are definitely a lot of Democrats here and we can help get people elected,Ž said the Vanderbilt sophomore. Years ago, we never wouldve imagined that gubernatorial candidates would be speaking in Charlotte County but here we are.Ž Despite the rainy weather, the event went off without a hitch and left many speakers and residents feeling very hopeful. If any of the Democratic candidates win, we will be in way better shape in the state of Florida,Ž Levine said.

Page 10 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSWhen they stand and put their hand over their heart, Tab and Carol Teehee change the Pledge of Allegiance to say and justice for some.Ž For 10 years, the North Port couple and „ their daughter Jana Thompson „ waited for law enforcement to follow leads and arrest the men who they say killed their son Alex Teehee. A 2006 North Port High School graduate, Alex, 20, was killed just days after moving to Charlotte Harbor. He was hit by a vehicle while walking on the edge of Sibley Bay Street around 11 p.m., on July 13, 2008. Taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, the father of two „ Kaden, now 13, and Eli, now 12 „ died 15 hours later. There was an altercation and Alex was thrown from that SUV,Ž Carol said. The DNA under his “ngernails was never tested. I was later told even if it was, it would only prove Alex was with three people on the night he died. The story kept changing. Then we were told we couldnt ask about it anymore.Ž Investigators initially believed as the couple did. Alex was allegedly threatened, pistol-whipped and pushed from a Nissan Xterra driven by former suspect Ralph Loosman. Detectives believed Michael Sylvester and Matthew Tricarico were also in the vehicle. They may have been “ghting over drugs, according to a police report. As Alex landed on the ground, he hit his head on a culvert pipe. None of the former suspects are currently accused of any wrongdoing in relation to the death. The medical examiner ruled it a homicide,Ž Carol said. It just doesnt seem like the detectives treated it like a homicide. They changed their theory and said he was hit by a car and it was an accident. Yet, this came after we pointed out there was con”ict of interest. One of the suspects brother and mother worked for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce. Deputies interviewed him instead of FHP detectives. We begged for the case to be moved to Sarasota or Lee county to get new eyes on it, because something is not right.Ž Desperate for answers, the family offered a $20,000 reward to help investigators with leads. But 10 years later, the Teehees say no one at the Florida Highway Patrol, who investigated the case, or the 12th Circuit Court is willing to even review the case. I get that certain things couldnt be done with DNA 10 years ago, but advancements have been made,Ž Carol said. We cant get a copy of reports from the state attorneys of“ce or the FHP, even though the investigation is closed and considered a cold case.Ž According to Samantha Syoen, spokeswoman for the state attorneys of“ce, the case was closed in 2012 by former Assistant State Attorney Don Mason, who is now a judge. There is a large quantity of public record available,Ž she said in an email to the Sun In a 2012 letter to the FHP, Mason wrote he was unaware FHP required a weekly report of the Teehee homicide investigation. He wrote the case against Loosman was dismissed in 2010 and was unaware of any new evidence linking the other two men in the case. The letter said DNA was tested from Alexs right “ngernail. It showed evidence he interacted with at least two other people. But the results could not be resolvedŽ from where the foreign DNAŽ came from under his “ngernail. The letter didnt say if Tricaricos or Sylvesters DNA were tested. It said the two men admitted being with Alex and did “ght over drugs. However it didnt proveŽ Alex was murdered by them. There comes a point when such efforts are futile and as much as we would all like to bring those responsible for the death of Alex Teehee to justice, the facts and circumstances of this case make that wish virtually impossible.Ž FHP investigators said Friday in an email to the Sun a thorough investigationŽ was done on the Teehee case. We are unable to actively pursue further action in this case,Ž said Greg Bueno, FHP spokesman. Should any new information, evidence and/or witnesses come forward, we will proceed with processing those new leads.Ž Carol con“rmed she didnt know any of the former suspects before her son died, but she does today. Karma is real,Ž she said. The Teehee family recently released large lanterns at Sibley Bay Street for the 10th anniversary of Alexs passing. Carol wants to buy the property and install benches for anyone who wants to sit and remember Alex. Alex died when Kaden was 3,Ž she said. We kept all of Alexs clothing. Now, Kaden (13) “ts into the jeans his dad wore when he was 20. The other day I was doing the laundry and said out loud, Alex, Im washing your pants. Im sad that Alex cant see them grow up. One looks like him and the other acts like him, so thats a constant reminder of Alex.Ž The boys are active in the community as members of the Young Marines program for middle-schoolers at Imagine School of North Port. Like his dad, Eli likes video games. He wants to be a YouTube video streamer. Kaden is intrigued by forensics and wants to join the military. Despite a few bright spots, Carol admits she and Tab havent moved on after her sons murder. Our marriage changed, weve changed who we were and what our dreams were, its gone,Ž she said. Memories dont seem to exist because somebody is gone out of them.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSSARASOTA „ In their next-to-last meeting before leaving on its annual summer break, Sarasota County commissioners took care of one critical piece of business. By a unanimous vote at its July 10 meeting, commissioners voted to keep the tentative millage rate at 3.39 mills, the rate used to determine the property tax a homeowner in the county pays. Approving the tentative millage rate will allow the tax collector to prepare and mail out to property owners the TRIM (truth in millage) statement next month. That notice informs property owners what their total tax bills will be when the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. When commissioners return from their annual break, they will have one final workshop on Aug. 22 to pore over the details of County Administrator Jonathan Lewis proposed $1.2 billion budget. While commissioners can make changes to the proposed budget, they cannot increase the millage rate. That proposed budget will then face two public hearings leading to approval on Sept. 12 in downtown Sarasota and Sept. 27 in Venice. Within the tentative millage rate, Budget Director Kim Radtke told commissioners, the millage need to support the countys debt service declined by 7 percent, falling from 0.1317 to 0.1222 mills. Conversely, the millage rate for mosquito control is increasing by almost 18 percent, from 0.0467 this year to 0.0550 in fiscal year 2019. So, youre telling us debt is down but mosquitoes are up?Ž Commission Chairwoman Nancy Detert jokingly remarked. Commissioners have maintained the millage rate at 3.39 mills for five years, since 2013 when it was set at the current level. At that rate, for example, the owner of a $100,000 home would pay $339 to the countys general fund. That does not, however, include the property taxes for the school board, the municipalities or other districts like the West Coast Inland Navigation District, each of which have their own taxing power and set their own millage rates. And, while the county commission is keeping the millage rate at the same level, property owners may still see an increase in their total tax bill compared to 2018 due to the continued increase in property values in the county. Property Appraiser Bill Furst reported to the county in July that overall property values had increased to $58.4 billion, up from $54.6 billion in 2017.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comSarasota property owners to expect tax noticesBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENT CHARLOTTE COUNTY „ Beginning Monday, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office will increase traffic enforcement at the following locations: Speed enforcement: € Kings Highway Top crash locations: € Tamiami Trail and Toledo Blade Boulevard € El Jobean Road and Toledo Blade Boulevard € Veterans Boulevard and Kings Highway € I-75 and Duncan Road € S.R. 31 and Bermont Road The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: € Jennifer Lyn Olson, 36, 26100 block of Angelica Rd., Punta Gorda.

OUR TOWN: SUNCOAST HOMES SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2018 SUNCOAST WIND ENSEMBLEHELP IN THE KITCHENLOCAL SPORTS: FIRECRACKER 5K The SunCoast Wind Ensemble performs its summer concert titled Give My Regards to Broadway!Ž Seepage 22. In the flurry of moving, North Port Meals on Wheels got a bit of extra help. Seepage 20. Tyler Fisher has won the Firecracker 5K multiple times. Seepage 24.Question: I am working with a Realtor to “nd a home. Ive been using search engines like Zillow, Trulia, etc. When I see a home I like, I email the address to my Realtor for follow-up. The problem is that I frequently get excited about a home, only to “nd out that it is no longer on the market. Is there a search engine you could recommend that is more accurate and reliable than the ones Ive been using? Or more to the point, what search engine would be best for me? Answer: Youre not alone. Realtors also get frustrated chasing non-existent leads from our web-shopping buyers. I took a call recently from a buyer who saw my listing on Zillow. It had everything he was looking for. I had sold that listing 2 years earlier, but Zillow indicated it was still listed. But I do have good news for you. There is a search engine that is absolutely the best when it comes to accuracy, reliability, and timeliness. I use it myself, and its available to you, too. Its the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Most search engines import their listings from multiple listing services. Once services like Zillow,, and Trulia import the data, the focus changes. The focus of the MLS is to provide to Realtors and their customers accurate, real-time data. The focus of Non-MLS search engines is to rope you into their web so that they can sell you products and services. The largest MLS system in Florida, My Florida Regional MLS (MFR-MLS), provides public access to its own search engine. But like non-MLS systems, it is very limited. You can only enter basic search criteria like zip code, size, year built, and price. For example, most systems require you to search by a speci“c zip code. That doesnt really let you drill down to the speci“c neighborhoods you are interested in. In fact, 57 percent of all Charlotte County homes are in just 5 zip codes. Zip 33952 has the most at 16.52 percent. The solution is to ask your Realtor to set up an MLS search portal for you. Instead of you entering your criteria on a public interface, your Realtor will use his super-charged interface to do it for you. Realtors have access to hundreds of data “elds that provide over 1,000 search options not available to the public. This provides vastly more power to tailor your search to your speci“c criteria. Realtors are not limited to zip code searches. Using aerial maps, they can draw polygons around speci“c areas and neighborhoods to restrict the search results to only those speci“c boundaries you want. For example, public search engines give you just two choices for waterfront propertiesyes or no. But your Realtor can check boxes to narrow your waterfront preferences down to oceanfront, bay front, canals, the Intracoastal, lake front, bridgeless sailboat access to the Gulf, etc. Not interested in waterfront? Other location options include properties with frontage and/or views of a golf course, a greenbelt, park, woods, etc. If you are a sun worshipper, you can limit the search to pool homes with direct southern exposure in the back yard. Other frequently used “elds include deed restrictions, pet restrictions, exterior construction, interior features like stone countertops, and much, much more.What search engine is best?

Page 14 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 2 Once you have provided your Realtor with your criteria, he will create a search portalŽ for you. We also refer to it as an auto-email system. Within a few hours, you will receive an email with a link to your portal. There, you will be able to browse through all the listings that are an exact match for your criteria. You will have access to all the listing details, photos, the virtual tour, an aerial map, etc. You can mark your favorites and revisit your portal any time. If a new listing matching your criteria comes on the market, or a pre-existing match in a higher price point drops down to your price range, you will receive a real-time email to alert you. As powerful as this MLS search engine is, there will always be some limitations. There are no data “elds for some characteristics that are important to many buyers. Thats because the answers are subjective. Does the house have an open ”oor plan? Is it clean? Is it move-in ready? Is it in a quiet neighborhood? Is it in good shape? But the answers to these questions are often found, or hidden between the lines, of the listing agents descriptive narrative. A comprehensive display of high quality photos by the listing agent is also a powerful tool for providing answers to interested buyers. The fact that your portal, unlike many public search engines, will include all the MLS photos and the virtual tours are another advantage to using your Realtors MLS search portal.

Reach him via 941-468-1430,, or PAGE 1 LOS ANGELES „ Heres the story of a lovely family home, which just hit the market for $1.885 million. The Brady Bunch house, a Traditionalstyle residence near the Colfax Meadows neighborhood, was used for outdoor representations of the beloved television familys abode. That included the shows opening and closing scenes as well as numerous interludes to denote the time of day. Interior scenes for The Brady BunchŽ were filmed in studio. Violet and George McCallister bought the two-bedroom, three-bathroom house in 1973 for $61,000, records show. The series ran from September 1969 to March 1974 before moving into reruns in syndication. Ernie Carswell, a Douglas Elliman agent who is listing the property, said the split-level house has been updated and upgraded but retains almost the exact interior decor from that era, though the layout does not resemble the TV show home. A rock-wall fireplace and wood-paneled walls are among classic details found in the living room, which features a built-in bar. Floral wallpaper and window coverings are another vintage touch. The homes MusiCall intercom and whole-house radio also remain. This is a postcard of exactly what homes looked like in the 1970s,Ž Carswell said. The home has about 2,500 square feet of living space, but that may not include an expansion of the downstairs family room, according to Carswell. The garage was converted into a recreation room „ much like the garage turned den on The Brady Bunch.Ž The desirability of the property is enhanced by its size, a 12,500-squarefoot lot that abuts the L.A. River. It sits in an area that has been ripe for tear-downs and new development in recent years. But the owners will give first consideration to bidders who want to keep the home intact, Carswell said. Were not going to accept the first big offer from a developer who wants to tear it down,Ž he said. Were going to wait a few days, in case there are others who want to purchase it as an investment to preserve it.Ž The Brady BunchŽ as a brand has stood the test of time, according to Joe Maddalena, founder of the Profiles in HistoryŽ memorabilia dealer and auction house. Maddalena, who is not affiliated with the listing, has experience when it comes to marketing properties with Hollywood cachet. He previously handled the personal property collection of late singer-actress Debbie Reynolds, which included her North Hollywood dance studio, and once marketed a property seen on American Horror Story.Ž The Brady Bunch, over the next 20 or 30 years, will never be forgotten,Ž Maddalena said. I think there is a definite cool factor (in buying) one of the most recognizable television homes in existence.Ž Carswell expects to see overwhelming interest in the property. Were preparing for an avalanche,Ž he said. Emails, telephone calls „ we may see upwards of 500 calls a day.Ž The Brady Bunch house is among the most photographed homes in America and attracts a steady stream of 30-50 fans each day, according to the agent. The property even has its own Yelp page. Finally got to see the Brady Bunch house, and couldnt help but feel nostalgic .4 stars!,Ž one Yelp user wrote. From there, the challenge becomes weeding out the looky-loos from actual potential buyers. Carswell said he plans to show the house by appointment only „ something residents in the quiet suburban neighborhood will likely appreciate. I just dont think we can have a Sunday open house where 1,000 people show up,Ž Carswell said. Wed be inviting chaos.Ž Private broker tours are another possibility, but not without security on site. The house is for sale, but this is not an exercise in publicity,Ž he said. Violet McCallister, the mother of an almost-Brady bunchŽ of five sons, was never bothered by the daily visitors who came to take a picture or drive by the house, according to Carswell. However, after the public became emboldened enough to approach the front door, a low brick wall was erected around the property. The McCallisters have both passed away. Their children are selling the home. The homes celebrity is something the next owner will have to consider, said Maddalena. Youre buying a never-ending attraction,Ž he said. There are positives and negatives.Ž One only needs to look to New Mexico to see another example of the drawbacks. Last year, owners of a house known around the world as Walter Whites residence on Breaking BadŽ had to build a fence around the property because of unwanted visitors. In addition to taking photos, many fans came to recreate a famous scene in which White tosses a pizza onto the roof of the home. For all the fan attention they draw, famous Hollywood homes dont always command a premium on the market. When the American Horror StoryŽ house, a Gothic Tudor-style home in L.A.s Alrlington Heights area, sold three years ago, it did so after years on the market and roughly $14 million below the $17-million original asking price. But for every horror story, there is a happy ending: Two years ago, a much-publicized Alhambra home featured in the movie Father of the BrideŽ sold for the asking price. Last year, a Venice compound made famous on the show CalifornicationŽ sold for $14.6 million, setting a record for the area.Brady Bunch house for sale for nearly $1.9MBy NEAL J.

Page 16 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 4 Not knowing your mortgage rate can be an expensive mistake, especially in this rising interest rate market. Yet nearly 3 in 10 mortgage holders (29 percent) either didnt know their mortgage rate or wouldnt say, according to a survey by Bankrate. This is a big problem, says Martin Choy, operations manager at Westwood Mortgage in Seattle. Most homeowners should know what their rate is. If they have an adjustable rate mortgage, then they should contact their lender immediately and get their current rate,Ž Choy says. Rates are climbing, so borrowers should act now As rates continue to rise, this could be your last chance for many years to lock in a lower rate. During the big boom, before this last election, we could re“nance mortgages at no cost because the rates were so low, but now the rates are heading up,Ž Choy says. The average rates on 30-, 15and 10-year “xed re“nances have risen from a year ago, according to Bankrates weekly survey of large lenders. The benchmark 30-year “xed-rate mortgage rose to 4.70 percent as of July 11, 2018 from 4.13 percent a year earlier. A $200,000 mortgage with a 4.70 percent interest rate costs $119 a month more in interest than the same mortgage with a 4.13 percent rate. As rates and mortgage amounts go up, the impact on your bottom line increases. Over time, this difference in rates can cost you thousands of dollars. Good candidates for re“nancing When you re“nance your mortgage, you pay off the remaining balance on your current loan and get a new one. You can get a new rate, new terms, or a new rate and new terms. You can get a cash-out re“nance where you tap into the equity to extract cash and then get a new mortgage. You can even pay money in and take out a smaller mortgage. Those with adjustable rate mortgages may be good candidates for re“nancing. As mortgage rates climb, so will your monthly payments. If you lock in a “xed-rate mortgage now, you may be able to save thousands of dollars later. The same is true for people with high-rate mortgages who have since improved their credit. There are many variables in determining whether re“nancing is a good option,Ž says Choy. How much do you owe? How much is your house appraised for? Is your credit score good? If youre in better “nancial shape now, both with your monthly debt ratio and credit score than when you got your mortgage, then you could qualify for better rates.Ž Today, most people arent getting ARMs because the rates are about the same as “xed-rate mortgages, says Choy. Its always better to get a “xed-rate loan than an ARM when interest rates are equal. Now is a good time to re“nance an ARM before rates get even higher.Ž Cash-out re“nance options If you have outstanding higher-rate consumer debt and an above-market mortgage interest rate, a cash-out re“nance might be a good option. That way you can consolidate all the debt into one presumably more affordable monthly payment. Not only are mortgage rates rising, so are interest rates for credit card debt. Because credit card interest rates follow in lockstep with mortgage rates, people with credit card debt might be looking at higher monthly payments. With a cash-out re“, you can use that money to pay off debt and get a new mortgage with better rates. That is an option for some homeowners,Ž says Choy. What does re“nancing cost? Re“nancing fees vary by lender and state, so be sure to shop around for speci“c costs. Bankrates mortgage rate tables are a good place to start looking at rates in your area. Calculate when youll break even on the new mortgage by taking into account the costs of re“nancing and any prepayment penalty for paying off your mortgage early. On average, borrowers can expect to pay between 3 and 6 percent of their balance in re“nancing fees. Costs might include: € Application fee: This charge varies by lender and is used to cover processing your application and credit report. The cost ranges from $75 to $300. € Loan origination fee: The lender charges this fee for preparing your loan. This may be between 0 percent and 1.5 percent of the loan principal. € Points: You might pay loan-discount points, which is a one-time fee for reducing the interest rate on your loan. Each point is equal to 1 percent of the amount of your mortgage. There is another point-based fee charged by lenders to earn money on the loan. This latter fee of up to 3 percent of the loan principal can sometimes be negotiated. Other fees might include: € Appraisal fee € Title search/title insurance € FHA, RDS, or VA fees or PMI € Homeowners insurance € Attorney review € Inspection € Surveys Sometimes these fees can be rolled into your new mortgage, or the lender will pay them in exchange for a higher interest rate. Re“nances that dont require borrowers to pay these up-front fees are known as nocostŽ re“nancing.Why you should know your mortgage rateBy NATALIE CAMPISIBANKRATE.COM I get many rental-related questions where the answers are too short to write a whole column about „ but they are important questions. Here I answer several of them. Q: I have rented part of a house for several years, paying monthly without a written lease, and recently the landlord signi“cantly raised the rent. Can he do this? „ Nancy A: Yes. If you dont have a written lease, your rent is locked in for only the term equal to how often you pay. If you pay weekly, your lease is for a week; pay monthly and it is for a month, and so on. Since your lease is month to month, you can be asked to leave, with 15 days notice, after just a month. Similarly, the terms of your lease, including the rent amount, can be changed just as frequently. Fortunately, if you are not happy with the change, you can also bail out with the same short notice. Q: I have a written lease, and the landlord now wants me to pay the water bill too. The lease states it is his responsibility. Do I now have to pay the water? „ Sandy A: No. The terms of the lease are enforceable by both the landlord and the tenant and cannot be changed unless both sides agree. Q: We pay our rent on the “rst of the month. The landlord just sold the apartment on the “fth. Does the previous landlord need to pay us back for the rest of the month? „ Kathy A: No. The proration of your rent is between the old landlord and the new one. The prior owner should have turned your rent and security deposit over to the new landlord, who is now responsible, since he is your landlord now. Your lease does not change just because the homes owner does. Everything should remain the same except for whom you write the check to. Q: I rent a couple of apartments. How long should I keep the old paperwork for when a tenant moves out? „ Richard A: Both landlords and tenants should keep lease records an absolute minimum of “ve years after move-out. Seven years is better. Same goes for homeowners. Gary M. Singer is a Florida attorney and board-certi“ed as an expert in real estate law by the Florida Bar.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 The HECM reverse mortgage program has been bleeding red ink. Losses on transactions in which the loan balance at termination exceeds the net recoverable property value have been larger than the insurance premiums FHA collects from all HECM borrowers. According to news reports, FHA Commissioner Brian Montgomery is considering measures that would reduce the amounts that seniors could draw on reverse mortgages. Smaller draws would result in slower growth in loan balances and, other things being the same, in reduced losses to FHA. Other things are not the same, however. Reduced draw amounts would make the program less attractive to potential new borrowers, especially to the type of borrowers needed to make the program self-sustaining. FHA needs to take another look at what needs to be done. A large proportion of HECM borrowers are “nancially desperate, a HECM is their last resort and they draw the maximum amounts permitted. Equity retention is not an objective and they are not scrupulous in maintaining their property. In contrast to the desperates,Ž there is a much larger group whose lives could be enriched by a HECM, for which purpose they would not necessarily need to draw the maximum amounts permitted. If they did take a HECM, many would retain some equity for their heirs, an objective that protects FHA against loss. For these solid seniors,Ž the HECM is optional but very few exercise the option. HUDs objective should be to attract more of them. I have three suggestions for accomplishing this, listed below in order of complexity: the “rst two are considered in this article, and the third will be in a forthcoming article. € Provide a basic HECM education function on HECM draw potential. € Encourage conversion of the existing dysfunctional HECM market into a shoppers market by certifying HECM multi-lender networks (MLNs). € Encourage integration of the HECM into retirement strategies.Basic Education on HECM Draw PotentialThis is directed to the large group of senior homeowners who could pro“t from a HECM reverse mortgage but under existing circumstances are not motivated to pursue it. They might pursue it if information about how a HECM might help them was readily available from a highly visible and completely trustworthy source. That source could be HUDs website. I have already done the work for HUD. My site contains a series of tables on HECM draw amounts of different types, which are updated whenever HECM prices change. The tables are directed at four major ways that a HECM reverse mortgage can help seniors: € Table 1 is directed at those who are still making payments on a standard mortgage, showing how large a balance they can pay off with a HECM reverse mortgage. € Table 2 is directed at those who need to supplement their income, showing the monthly payment they can draw for as long as they live in their home, or for shorter periods. € Table 3 is directed at those who want to prepare themselves for future contingencies or opportunities, showing the credit line available to them at closing, after 12 months, and after 10 years. € Table 4 is directed at those who want to buy a house without incurring a monthly payment, showing the amount they can draw for that purpose from a HECM, and the amount required from other sources. I would be happy to place these tables on the HUD site and support them without charge.Convert the HECM Market into a Shoppers Market by Certifying MLNsThe existing market for HECMs can best be described as a gotchaŽ market in which distrust is a major by-product. The objective of HECM loan providers is to attract potential borrowers into making contact, and then collecting the information needed to entangle them in a process that encourages them to take a HECM but discourages them from looking elsewhere. Prices are disclosed only after a senior discloses the property address, their email address and in some cases their Social Security number. As a result, very few prospective HECM borrowers contact more than one lender. A HECM MLN is an independent entity that will help seniors make the best decision among HECM options, and obtain the best deal offered by multiple lenders on that option, at a single source. Seniors select the lender they want to deal with from among those participating in the MLN, based on information provided by the MLN. MLNs would replace the gotcha market with a shoppers market. MLNs would be certi“ed as providing the following functions: 1. Compilation of price data from multiple lenders: The MLN should maintain a relationship with enough lenders that it can offer at least three independent price quotes in every state. This can be done with three national lenders that operate in every state, or with a larger number of lenders that have limited geographical coverage. 2. Provision of draw amount trade-off technology: The MLN should provide an easy-to-use tool that allows a senior with no prior HECM knowledge to de“ne the HECM draw option or options that they want. The tool must allow the senior to try out different combinations of draw options to “nd the preferred combination. 3. Provision of decision metrics: The MLN should provide data on the particular metrics that are relevant to each seniors selection of a lender. The required metrics are: € Maximum cash draw at closing. € Maximum sum of cash draw at closing and after 12 months. € Maximum initial credit line. € Maximum credit line after X years where the borrower sets X. € Maximum monthly payment for as long as the borrower resides in the house. € Maximum monthly payment over Y years where the borrower sets Y. € Minimum debt after Z years where the borrower sets Z. Back in the 1990s, HUD toyed with the concept of a computerized loan origination network or CLO in connection with standard mortgages. Nothing ever came of it, perhaps because the need was less then compelling. I changed the name from CLO to MLN because HECMs are very different and the need for what a network can provide is more than compelling.

Page 20 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 8 In the ”urry of moving, North Port Meals on Wheels got a bit of extra help. On Friday, route coordinator Ed Repose received a $3,000 check from Robin Bongiovi of AMVETS Post 312 to help make sure the organization has the supplies it needs, though meals are typically paid for. The money came from AMVETS Post 312 Ladiess Auxiliary which collected $500, the Sons of AMVETS which collected $1,500, along with a match from the AMVETS department of Florida Service Foundation. Bonjiovi, who is part of the auxiliary, said the post chose to donate to Meals on Wheels after realizing that the group helps to feed veterans, their widows and widowers, as well as family of veterans. The Sons (of AMVETS) and Ladies (Auxiliary) are always fundraising,Ž she said. Repose said this does help, especially since the money will go to fund meals for those who cant afford them, as well help with kitchen expenses. North Port Meals on Wheels relies solely on donations to feed the residents who need it. The entirely volunteer run organization is always in need of help and funding to make sure those who rely on them get the food they need. As for the move, Repose said theyre waiting on one last permit and inspection. The group, which has been housed at Trinity United Methodist Church, has been struggling with space. Earlier this year, the group began the process of moving to a new space in Biscayne Plaza off of U.S. 41. Repose said the new space is almost done and all they need to do is move in. He said the move is planned for a weekend to not disrupt meal distribution. Until then, the group will continue cooking and distributing meals.

The board will also discuss the tentative millage rate. According to district documents, the schools 2018-19 preliminary budget is $828,200,066 spanning all departments. The general fund for 2018-19 is projected to be at $463,963,632 for the upcoming school year. For the 2017-18 school year, the general fund for the district was projected to end up at $447,258,941, according to documents from a June 19 workshop. A large amount of the budget comes from the general fund, with funding also coming from other sources. The rise in the general fund is due to capital outlay, which is being used to fund the new police department, but also salary increases and construction. For the coming school year, the capital fund „ which funds projects across the district „ is set to be $61,326,229. The rise in the capital fund is due to recent construction, in response to the fatal shooting of 17 students and educators on Feb. 14 in Parkland at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The district has moved several future projects to the current year to comply with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act. The rest of the $319,614,896 for the districts budget comes from federal, state and local funding, as well as grants. Along with the budget, the board will also look at its tentative millage rate for the 2018-19 school year. The proposed millage rate for the 201819 school year is 7.003, which is less than the rate for 2017-18 „ the rate for this past year was 7.209. The millage rate in the county is set through the property taxes collected by the county, 1 mill is equal to $100 per every $100,000 of assessed home value. The Sarasota County School Board will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday for its tentative budget meeting and millage rate meeting in the board chambers, 1980 Landings Blvd., Sarasota. Meetings are broadcast live on the Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33, as well as streamed live on the districts website www. sarasotacountyschools. net.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 E/N/C Page 23 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 11 South Florida juries appear to be less likely to send convicted killers to death row under the states newest death penalty law. Two juries in Broward County decided to spare the lives of convicted killers in the past week in cases where capital punishment would have seemed likely just a few years ago. On July 16, Bernard Forbes, Eloyn Ingraham and Andre Delancy learned they would not face execution for the 2006 murder of Broward Sheriffs Deputy Brian Tephford. And July 19, Eric Montgomerys life was spared by the same jury that convicted him of fatally shooting his stepdaughter in the face, chasing down her terri“ed mother and shooting her to death while his grandmother physically tried to stop him, taking a bullet in the process. In three “rst-degree murder trials in Palm Beach County since September, juries have recommended life sentences for the men they convicted. The challenge appears to be the stringent requirement of the death penalty law passed in the spring of 2017. The state now requires juries to unanimously “nd at least one aggravating factor justifying the imposition of the death penalty, and a second unanimous vote recommending it. The requirement for unanimity was probably the biggest factor in why the jury spared their lives,Ž said Ingrahams penalty-phase lawyer, Ed Salantrie. The jury might have been troubled by one piece of missing information, he said. No one knows which defendant “red the bullets that killed Tephford. Simple majorities were required before 2016, but a combination of federal and state Supreme Court decisions found that without a unanimous verdict, Floridas death penalty process was unconstitutional. It would appear based solely on the fact that a unanimous verdict is now required rather than a majority verdict, it will be more dif“cult to secure a death penalty verdict under the current law,Ž Broward State Attorney Mike Satz said. Since the newest law was enacted, Broward juries have rejected the death penalty in three of four cases. In each of those cases, the defense put up a “ght, calling witnesses and urging jurors to show mercy. The unanimous death decision came against Peter Avsenew, convicted of killing a Wilton Manors couple in 2010. After his conviction, Avsenew “red his defense lawyers and represented himself in front of the jury, making no effort to plead for his life or show a hint of remorse. I have no regrets in my life and I am proud of the decisions Ive made,Ž he said. Defense lawyers and prosecutors agree that its too soon to determine whether the new law will result in a long-term reduction in the number of capital sentences. According to the state Corrections Department, Florida sent 12 inmates to death row in 2014 and 2015. From 2017 to 2018 so far, four have been condemned: one each from Collier, Polk, Duval and St. Johns County. But in Palm Beach, prosecutors have not gotten a death penalty since 1998, even under the old law. You are asking a citizen to be so certain that they are willing to kill a person based on their conscientious review of the evidence,Ž said Elizabeth Ramsey lead homicide defense attorney for the Palm Beach Public Defenders of“ce. She says she doesnt expect to see all 12 members of a jury vote for death in Palm Beach County. In some of the countys more heinous cases, defense lawyers evaded the death penalty by making plea deals, Ramsey said. Under the new law, prosecutors in Jacksonville have sought the death penalty once. The jury in that case was unanimous against Donald Smith, 61 who kidnapped, raped and murdered 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle in 2013. Four death penalty cases have been tried in the Orlando area, with unanimous jury verdicts coming back in two of them. Judges are not permitted to overrule a jurys rejection of death. Whenever you have 12 people in a room, its hard to get them to agree on anything,Ž said former Broward prosecutor Marjorie Sommer, a jury consultant with Focus Consulting Services. Potential jurors in death penalty cases are typically removed if they have philosophical objections to capital punishment. But sometimes they slip through. Last year, a Broward jury convicted Jacqueline Luongo of killing her roommate for insurance money, stuf“ng her body in a closet for days while disguising herself as her victim to make bank withdrawals. When it came time to deliberate over the penalty, juror Sarah Miller said she was stunned to learn that a fellow panelist had no intention of even considering death. She faked her way onto the jury,Ž Miller said. It was so unfair to the victims family. It didnt sit well with me. We didnt do justice.Ž The vote, Miller said, was 11-1. Luongo was sentenced to life in prison.Killers avoid death row under new lawBy RAFAEL OLMEDA and MARC FREEMANSUN SENTINELMan killed by deputies after he kills dog Woman gets 40 years for death of baby left in her care Sheriff: Drugs sprayed on mail sent to inmates Buzz Aldrin expected to be no-show at Apollo galaLADY LAKE (AP) „ Authorities in Florida say deputies shot and killed a man who punched and then shot dogs following a domestic dispute with his wife.

Authorities said Bradley had been babysitting Jaxon Betts for several months when she called his mother in September 2015 and said he wasnt breathing. Court records show that an autopsy determined Jaxon died of brain swelling after being violently shaken. PANAMA CITY (AP) „ Florida authorities are charging dozens of people as part of a sophisticated drug-smuggling operation that consisted of spraying synthetic drugs on mail sent to inmates. Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford on Friday announced that 27 people had been arrested as part of a year-long investigation called Youve Got Mail.Ž It began when authorities found a drug called Suboxone on a CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) „ Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin is expected to be noticeably absent from a gala kicking off a yearlong celebration of the | HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEhusband had punched a dog three times in the face and then pushed her.

However, the Port Charlotte High School graduates recent win was his first after completing a full year of college competition. The Cornell University rising senior finished in 15 minutes, 43.3 seconds to win the July race in North Port. He won the race in consecutive years from 2014-16. I was happy to do a little better,Ž said Fisher, who improved upon his winning 2015 time of 15:54.6. It was the fastest Ive ever run in the summer.Ž Fisher will be the top returning runner this fall for Cornells mens cross country team. He finished as the squads fourth scorer placing behind three seniors, in the 2017 NCAA Division I Northeast Region Championship 10K. He was the fourth scorer in another meet and the third scorer in one. He participated in his first indoor track and field season, competing in the 3,000-meter run. He ran the 10,000 during the outdoor season. Not being injured was definitely big,Ž said Fisher, a medical redshirt as an underclassman after breaking his femur. My first year of college running all the way through, that was huge. I made some big progress.Ž He has been running 70 to 75 miles a week and will reach 85 by the end of the summer. He has been training with Charlotte High graduate Michael Balseca, who will compete in cross country for Florida Southern College as a freshman this year. Fisher said Balseca was a freshman on the Pirates team when he was a senior. Fisher is training extra to improve his strength and his race recovery. He has been doing stretching, flexibility drills and body weight training, such as pushups and crunches. He is considering running in another area race before reporting to Cornell. After the fall, Fisher said, he has two years of eligibility remaining in indoor track and one year in outdoor track. He is planning on attending another school for his masters degree so that he may continue competing.

DanMEARNSCOLUMNIST Health & HopeThe American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 97,220 new cases of colon cancer and 43,030 new cases of rectal cancer will be diagnosed in 2018. Colorectal cancer, the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the United States, is expected to claim more than 50,000 lives this year. It has long been believed that the he risk of colorectal increases with age, with the median age of diagnosis for colon cancer being 68 for men and 72 for women, and the median of diagnosis for rectal cancer being 63 in both men women. In a shocking new study published in February, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) determined that the rates of colon and rectal cancer are rising sharply among young and middle-aged Americans, while they continue to decline for adults 55 and older. Colon cancer rates are increasing about one to two percent per year for people in their 20s and 30s, the study found. Rates for middle-aged adults also rose, but at a slower pace. Rectal cancer rates climbed even faster in recent decades, at about three percent per year for people in their 20s and 30s and two percent annually for those ages 40 to 54. As a result, three in 10 new cases of rectal cancer now are diagnosed in patients younger than 55. By contrast, rectal cancer rates in adults ages 55 and older have dropped for four decades. Dr. John Rioux, a board-certi“ed general surgeon based practicing at Gulf Pointe Surgical Specialists and Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte, said he and his colleagues had observed that people were getting the disease earlier. Until this study came out, there was really not a whole lot of data on it,Ž he said. Based on the Colorectal cancer on the rise in younger adultsDAN | 3Maverick Coltrin entered the world a seemingly healthy 8-pound boy. But within a week, he was having seizures that doctors could neither explain nor control. They warned that he would probably die within a few months. I remember my world just came crashing down,Ž said his mother, Kara Coltrin, 24. In October, Coltrin and her husband, Michael, began taking hundreds of photos of their son, hooked up to tubes and his skin purplish gray. Family rushed to San Diego from across the country to meet him before he died. Then, in a last-ditch effort, doctors at Rady Childrens Hospital-San Diego decided to analyze his DNA in case it could reveal what was wrong. In one of his genes, they found a mutation that had caused a seizure disorder. The attacks could now be controlled with a few medicines. Today, Maverick is a chubby 6-month-old who bounces on his moms knee. He narrows his eyes at strangers, drawing his thick brows together, before easing into a toothless grin. Maverick bene“ted from a groundbreaking $25 million federal effort studying the value of sequencing babies entire DNA, known as their genome. Doctors in San Diego have shown that genome sequencing can help very sick infants like Maverick. But the potential to uncover diseases and risks hidden in DNA has sparked a controversial debate: What if all babies had their genomes sequenced? Other researchers in the same federal project, called Newborn Sequencing in Genomic Medicine and Public Health, have been investigating this broader notion, as well as the sticky ethical questions that come with it. Using genetics to prevent disease has been envisioned since DNA was discovered more than half a century ago. Ideally, it would ”ag risks that doctors and parents could try to mitigate, such as a likelihood of obesity or breast cancer. Nowadays, delving into your genetic makeup requires little more than spitting into a tube and mailing away for results. Yet little is known about how easy access to such information could play out. Many worry about whether parents may treat children differently once they have a window into their future. Researchers also warn that much genetic information isnt predictive or even accurate, and will undoubtedly lead to anxiety among parents. Its like drinking out of a “re hose,Ž said Dr. Tracy Trotter, a Bay Area pediatrician and co-chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Genetics. Its going to be something people want to do, and when they get the information, theyll wish they didnt do it.Ž Parents regularly ask Trotter about their childs 23andMe mail-in genetic tests, detailing their projected risks of lactose intolerance or macular degeneration.

The American Academy of Opthalmology says many conditions and diseases can impact a childs vision. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to improving a youngsters eye health and helping him or her see and feel better. Learning about certain conditions and how to recognize their accompanying symptoms can help parents ensure kids get the treatment they need. AmblyopiaOften referred to as lazy eye,Ž amblyopia may be characterized by reduced vision in an eye that has not received adequate use during early childhood. Amblyopia may result from misalignment of a childs eyes or from one eye focusing better than the other. If left untreated, the weaker eye can continue to weaken until it is rendered useless. Sight in the affected eye can be restored if treatment is begun early, says Prevent Blindness America. Glasses, eye exercises or surgery may be prescribed to help “x the underlying causes of the condition.AstigmatismAstigmatism is a condition wherein objects viewed at both a distance and close up can appear blurry. Experts say it occurs from the uneven curvature of the cornea or lens, which prevents rays of light from entering the eye and focusing on a single point on the retina, otherwise known as a refractive error. Prescription eyeglasses often “x astigmatism. All About Vision also says that refractive surgery may correct astigmatism.Color blindness (color vision deficiency)The main symptom of color blindness is dif“culty distinguishing between colors or making mistakes when identifying colors, particularly those shaded red and green. Typically by age “ve, children with normal color vision will be able to identify groups of colors, so if a school-aged child is having dif“culty or showing disinterest in coloring, he or she may bene“t from a colorblindness test.

They said that finding findings are based on results from recent laboratory tests. The FDA said the carcinogens presence is thought to be related to changes in the way the active substance was manufactured.Ž We have carefully assessed the valsartan-containing medications sold in the United States, and weve found that the valsartan sold by these specific companies does not meet our safety standards. This is why weve asked these companies to take immediate action to protect patients,Ž said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Patients already taking the recalled medications should contact their pharmacist or doctor immediately, the FDA said. To determine whether a specific product has been recalled, patients should look at the drug name and company name on the label of their prescription bottle. If the information is not on the bottle, patients should contact the pharmacy that dispensed the medicine. The speci“c medicines recalled are: € Valsartan, Major Pharmaceuticals. € Valsartan, Solco Healthcare. € Valsartan, Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries Ltd. € Valsartan/ Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), Solco Healthcare. € Valsartan/ Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries Ltd.FDA recalls heart medication valsartan, citing cancer concernsBy MONIQUE O. MADANMIAMI HERALDAccording to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of three adults „ those 65 and older „ fall each year. Over 700,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture. The good news is, falls can be prevented. Improving balance is a good way of helping to accomplish this. Good balance is the result of several body systems working together to help us stand and move comfortably and with control. These systems include the eyes (visual system), the ears (vestibular system) and the network of proprioceptors responsible for providing an awareness of the bodys position in space (proprioception). Proprioceptors (nerve receptors) are found in muscles and the joint-supporting ligaments found throughout the body. The information they receive helps to facilitate balance as we stand and move. Should any of the systems required for balance fail to work properly, balance problems will result. Even when the balance systemsŽ are working correctly, a number of conditions and/ or behavior can exist that, over time, help to make good balance impossible. Inactivity and poor diet are examples. Inactivity will, quite often, lead to weight gain, loss of muscle mass (tissue), joint pain and weakness and a decrease in bone strength. These conditions will, ultimately, affect good balance and make falling more likely. Ones diet, if it fails to provide the body with the important elements it needs, will „ over time „ prevent organs and systems from functioning properly. For instance, when calcium is lacking in ones diet, a decrease in the density (compactness and strength) of bones becomes possible. Such a condition, when it exists, is an important contributor to poor balance and, therefore, falling. To assist the public in dealing with this problem, the Cultural Center of Charlotte County will be offering a three-hour Fall Prevention and Balance Improvement Workshop. The workshop will present a comprehensive overview of the important principles and strategies basic to effective fall prevention and balance improvement.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 E/N/C Page 27 FEELING FIT 3 The growing use of anti-anxiety pills reminds some doctors of the early days of the opioid crisis. Considered relatively safe and non-addictive by the general public and many doctors, Xanax, Valium, Ativan and Klonopin have been prescribed to millions of Americans for decades to calm jittery nerves and promote a good nights sleep. But the number of people taking the sedatives and the average length of time theyre taking them have shot up since the 1990s, when doctors also started liberally prescribing opioid painkillers. As a result, some state and federal of“cials are now warning that excessive prescribing of a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines or benzosŽ is putting more people at risk of dependence on the pills and is exacerbating the fatal overdose toll of painkillers and heroin. Some local governments are beginning to restrict benzo prescriptions. When taken in combination with painkillers or illicit narcotics, benzodiazepines can increase the likelihood of a fatal overdose as much as tenfold, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. On their own, the medications can cause debilitating withdrawal symptoms that last for months or years. Public health of“cials also warn that people who abruptly stop taking benzodiazepines risk seizures or even death. With heightened public awareness of the nations opioid epidemic, some state and local of“cials are insisting that these anti-anxiety medications start sharing some of the scrutiny. We have this whole infrastructure set up now to prevent overprescribing of opioids and address the need for addiction treatment,Ž said Dr. Anna Lembke, a researcher and addiction specialist at Stanford University. We need to start making benzos part of that.Ž What were seeing is just like what happened with opioids in the 1990s,Ž she said. It really does begin with overprescribing. Liberal therapeutic use of drugs in a medical setting tends to normalize their use. People start to think theyre safe and, because they make them feel good, it doesnt matter where they get them or how many they use.Ž The number of adults “lling a benzodiazepine prescription increased by two-thirds between 1996 and 2013, from 8 million to nearly 14 million, according to a review of market data by Lembke and others in the New England Journal of Medicine. Despite the known dangers of co-prescribing painkillers and anti-anxiety medications, the rate of combined prescriptions nearly doubled between 2001 and 2013. Since then, prescriptions for benzodiazepines may have leveled off or declined slightly, according to recent data from a market research “rm that tracks prescription drug sales, the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science. At the same time, opioid prescribing has dropped by more than a “fth. Still, Lembke said, the level of prescribing is much higher than it was in the mid-1990s and benzo dependence appears to be rising based on her own clinical observations. First marketed in the early 1960s, benzodiazepines have been cyclically abused throughout their history. Whats notable now, Lembke said, is that overuse of benzos is coinciding with overuse of opioids. But a newly formed group of researchers and pharmacologists, the International Task Force on Benzodiazepines, wrote in an editorial that recent negative publicity has made it dif“cult for many doctors around the world to prescribe medications they consider essential. Some scienti“c articles achieved a common goal that negative propaganda frequently reaches: they aroused suspicion of benzodiazepines and suggested dif“culties in using them, while overlooking their bene“ts,Ž the pharmacologists said. (Three of the 17 co-authors reported having consulted for or received support from drug companies.) Psychiatrists, including Lembke, agree that relatively inexpensive benzodiazepines can be effective at relieving acute cases of anxiety and sleeplessness. Physicians agree that benzos should not be used long term to solve psychiatric problems. Research indicates that use of the drugs for more than a few weeks can cause tolerance, including withdrawal symptoms between doses, and physical and psychological dependence. To raise awareness of benzodiazepines dangers, Hawaii, Pennsylvania and New York City have issued prescribing guidelines that limit the duration of Xanax, Valium and other benzo prescriptions, similar to many state guidelines for opioids. In addition, the Massachusetts Legislature this month passed a wide-ranging opioid bill that included benzodiazepines as a class of restricted drugs. Nationwide, most states require doctors and pharmacists to track opioid prescribing through online databases that monitor patients who receive them and doctors who prescribe them. Benzodiazepines are not included in half of the states, according to an analysis of state laws by The Pew Charitable Trusts, which also supports Stateline. As prescriptions for benzodiazepines have grown since the late 1990s, so have deaths, according to a study at Monte“ore Medical Center in New York. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines quadrupled from 2002 to 2015. New highly potent forms of benzodiazepines that are illicitly traded are also causing overdose deaths, addiction doctors say. Adding to the dangers, the Drug Enforcement Administration has reported that the deadly synthetic drug fentanyl has been found in counterfeit forms of Xanax. Xanax and Valium were involved in more than 30 percent of opioid overdose deaths between 2010 and 2014, far more than cocaine and methamphetamines, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In some parts of the country, the prevalence of Xanax in drug overdose autopsy reports was even higher. Xanax for the past several years has been found in more overdose autopsies in Kentucky than any speci“c opioid, according to Dr. Kelly Clark, president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and an addiction doctor who lives in the state. In fact, community mental health centers in Louisville stopped prescribing Xanax because it is such a common drug of abuse and so dangerous in combination with alcohol and opioids,Ž she said in an interview with Stateline. Researchers and patient advocates argue more needs to be done to educate medical students and inform doctors and patients about the drugs dangers. Dr. Christy Huff, who is in recovery from dependence on Xanax, co-directs the Utahbased Benzodiazepine Information Coalition. The nonpro“t advocates for stronger warnings for patients who take Xanax and other benzos, as well as better education for prescribing physicians. Our population of patients is experiencing extremely dif“cult withdrawals, and they have neurological injuries because of unsafe prescribing,Ž Huff said. Doctors need to be informed that the medications should be prescribed for no more than two to four weeks. They were always meant to be short term.Ž In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about the dangers of combining opioids and benzodiazepines. That prompted many doctors to force patients to choose one drug over the other without warning them about the potential symptoms of withdrawal such as seizures or even death, Huff said. Patients who are on the medications should be given the choice of how and when they are tapered off,Ž she said. Too many doctors are taking people off their prescriptions too rapidly.Ž The benzo task force wrote in its editorial that it was developing research that it hoped would support preserving the drugs as a valuable part of the medical arsenal.These pills could be next US drug epidemic, public health officials sayBy CHRISTINE VESTALSTATELINE.ORG PHOTO PROVIDEDClonazepam (traded as Klonopin), diazepam (Valium) and alprazolam (Xanax) are among the most sold drugs in a class of widely prescribed anti-anxiety medications known as benzodiazepines. Public health ocials warn the pills should be used only in the short term and should never be mixed with opioids or alcohol.males than in females.Pediatric glaucomaThis rare condition, also known as congenital glaucoma, occurs in infants and young children. The Glaucoma Research Foundation says incorrect development of the eyes drainage system before birth leads to increased intraocular pressure, which can damage the optic nerve. Enlarged eyes, corneal cloudiness and sensitivity to light can be symptoms. Medication and surgery are required in most cases.StrabismusStrabismus is a condition of misaligned eyes. It occurs when the eye muscles fail to work together and the eyes turn inward, outward, upward, or downward. By the age of three to four months, an infants eyes should be able to focus and be straight and parallel. Parents should consult an eye care professional if they notice eye alignment problems in their children. Pink eye (conjunctivitis), diabetes-related eye problems and other refractive errors also can occur in children. Routine eye examinations can identify problems and get children the treatment they need. EYEFROM PAGE 1 new statistics and our practical experience, it does seem to be true.Ž The NCI study didnt determine the reason for the increase. ACS researcher Rebecca Siegel, who led the study, suggested one explanation might involve the same factors that have contributed to the obesity epidemic … changes in diet, a sedentary lifestyle, excess weight and low “ber consumption. Theres no doubt obesity plays a role,Ž said Dr. Rioux. If we had to design a diet to cause colon cancer, it would be the American diet „ high in fat, low in “ber.Ž Dr. Rioux said another significant risk for colon and rectal cancer is cigarette smoking, which increases the incidence of many cancers. In colorectal cancer, the carcinogens from cigarette smoke enter the throat and lungs and are transferred to the digestive tract though swallowing phlegm and mucus the smoker coughs up. This material passes though the small intestine very quickly, said the doctor, which explains why small bowel cancer is very rare (less than three percent of all gastrointestinal malignancies, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information). Polyps, the abnormal growths that can lead to cancer, develop when chromosomal damage occurs in the inner lining of the intestines. Carcinogens arent generally exposed to the lining of the small bowel for very long,Ž Dr. Rioux said. Colonic motility, on the other hand, is a little slower, so carcinogens are exposed to inner lining for a longer period of time.Ž Dr. Rioux said cancer can be traced to carcinogens and genetic predisposition. The latter refers to an increased likelihood of developing a particular disease based on a persons genetic makeup, often inherited from a parent. If you dont have a predisposition, you may not get cancer if youre exposed to a mild carcinogen,Ž he said, but if youre exposed to a very potent carcinogen, even with great genes, you may get it. If you have a predisposition, it probably doesnt take much exposure to a carcinogen to get the disease.Ž Gulf Pointe Surgical Specialists is located at 21260 Olean Blvd., Suite 200, Port Charlotte.

BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTES Is anyone you know over the age of 50 completely free from knee pain? It seems everyone suffers with stiff or painful knees at least occasionally, and research indicates that up to 30 percent of the adult population is living with at least some osteoarthritis, in one or both knees. Until the age of 50, the condition is equally common in men and women, but prevalence in women increases after 50. As the U.S. population ages, and becomes more active later in life, the demand for stronger and healthier knees continues to drive innovation in the medical community. Candidates for knee replacement surgery have traditionally been those suffering from signi“cant pain and limited mobility due to osteoarthritis,Ž says Mark Davis, M.D., board-certi“ed orthopedic surgeon with Bayfront Health Medical Group and educator to thousands of surgeons in the U.S. and Europe on the latest techniques in joint replacement. But as patients become increasingly active in their 60s, 70s and even 80s, we are continually challenged to develop and provide new and better clinical solutions. Most patients are no longer content with just being able to walk without pain at age 70 „ now they demand strong and ”exible joints that allow them to hike, bike and play tennis.Ž While osteoarthritis can be caused or worsened by injury or in”ammatory conditions, the primary cause of osteoarthritis by far is your genetic makeup. Osteoarthritis is the wearing away of the connective tissue „ or cartilage „ within a joint. Cartilage prevents one bone from scraping against another, acts as a shock absorber, and allows for smooth and stable movement within the joint. Because the durability of cartilage is a genetic factor, its true that many people end up with osteoarthritis, simply because it runs in the family. Early treatments often consist of weight loss programs, anti-in”ammatory medications, and injection therapies to help supplement the lost cartilage and minimize pain. When these remedies are no longer suf“cient, and the patients quality of life is at risk, knee replacement is often the next step „ and is surprisingly common. There are currently more than 700,000 knee replacement surgeries performed each year in the U.S. Statistics suggest that this number will rise to a staggering 3.5 million cases annually by the year 2030. Total vs. Partial Knee Replacement While partial knee replacement surgeries have been around for many years, they used to be reserved for older patients who lived mostly sedentary lifestyles. Now, partial knee replacement is often preferred in younger patients, as their recovery is quicker and with much less pain. It was originally estimated that about 1 in 20 patients with arthritic knees are eligible for partial knee procedures,Ž says Davis. But today, that number is much higher, closer to 1 in 5.Ž There are three compartments of the knee joint, but the inner „ or medial „ area is the most likely to experience cartilage breakdown,Ž says Davis. When arthritis is present in only one of the joints compartments, and it doesnt respond to non-surgical treatments, the patient may be a good candidate for partial knee replacement, offering them less pain and recovery time than a full replacement.Ž When deciding on any surgical treatment plan, your surgeon will give consideration to your current health status and complication risks, your lifestyle and its physical demands, and your ability to coordinate the down time and therapy you will need for recovery in post-surgery. You should be fully open with your doctor about these issues, so he or she can identify whether a full or partial knee procedure is the safest and most bene“cial path for you. If you decide to proceed with a partial knee replacement, be sure to ask your surgeon these “ve questions: € What kind of prosthesis will you use in my knee and why? € What will my recovery look like and when should I expect to return to my job/family/social activities? € Once my partial knee resurfacing is complete, will I be arthritis free? € What are the long-term expectations for my new joint? What can I expect 5, 10 and 20 years post-surgery? € What are the potential complications of surgery, and what can I do to minimize them? Whether you decide on a full or partial replacement of your knee joint, be sure you have considered and shared with your surgeon all of your concerns, expectations and current medical issues. Millions of people worldwide have found their lives dramatically improved, thanks to joint replacement surgery.

Page 30 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 Q: Over the past year, I have developed a number of small brown blotches on my face that darken when Im in the sun. The spots lightened a bit over the winter, but Im concerned they will darken again this summer. What causes this, and is there a way to avoid it from worsening? I am 25 and otherwise healthy. A: What you are describing sounds like ephelides „ also known as freckles. These small areas of extra pigmentation on the skin get darker when they are exposed to sunlight during the summer, and then they tend to fade during the winter. Freckles typically are not a sign of an underlying skin disorder, and they do not require any treatment. Check them from time to time, though. If you notice any changes, such as one of the spots growing larger or developing an irregular border, see a dermatologist to have it checked. Ephelides most often appear tan, brown or red. Unlike some other dark skin patches, such as moles, they are ”at rather than raised from the skin. Freckles are most common in people with fair skin and in those who have red hair. Freckles generally develop in childhood, adolescence or young adulthood, and they may increase in number and distribution during that time. A hallmark characteristic of freckles is that they get darker when exposed to the suns ultraviolet (UV) light. Thats why they become more noticeable in the summertime and fade throughout the winter months. In some case, freckles may be confused with another type of skin spot known as solar lentigines „ sometimes called age spots. The difference is that solar lentigines are actually caused by frequent and prolonged sun exposure over the course of many years. Freckles, on the other hand, are typically a result of genetics. Freckles often fade or disappear with age, while solar lentigines become more common as people get older. You can help keep freckles from getting darker, and reduce the likelihood that more will appear, by taking steps to shield your skin from sunlight, especially during the summer months. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor, or SPF, of 30 or higher whenever you are outdoors. Wear sunscreen „ even if the sun is not shining, as UV light penetrates through clouds and re”ects off water, snow and other surfaces. Apply sunscreen generously and frequently to all areas of exposed skin, particularly after you have been swimming or sweating. To further shield your skin from the suns damaging rays, wear protective gear, such as a broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses, and limit your time outdoors when the sun is strongest during the late morning and early afternoon. Never use a tanning bed. Although freckles are harmless, it is important to keep an eye on skin changes and be familiar with whats normal for your skin. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, so know its signs and symptoms. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, see a dermatologist. In particular, watch for new dark patches appearing on your skin that have not been there before. Notice if a patch of skin changes color; becomes darker in only one area; becomes uneven, jagged or scalloped around the edges; grows larger; or changes in height. If any of that happens, see a dermatologist. If a darker area of skin bleeds, itches or becomes tender, evaluate that promptly, too.All about frecklesFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK TNS PHOTOFreckles typically are not a sign of an underlying skin disorder, and they do not require any treatment.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 E/N/C Page 31 1 Karen Quintana is keenly aware of how hard it is for companies to “nd workers who can handle the government red tape and other complexities of shipping containers of electronics, toys and machine parts in and out of the nations largest port complex in San Pedro Bay. Once companies do “nd a quali“ed applicant, said Quintana, president of L.A.s Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association, its not uncommon for them to already have four other offers. At that point, Quintana said, there is a bidding war.Ž As unemployment hits record lows, Southern California employers are increasingly being forced to compete for a dwindling supply of workers. In many cases, theyre responding by lifting wages. Others are investing in training or automating functions to make do with fewer workers. It is against that backdrop of a tightening labor market that the minimum wage rises again in the city of Los Angeles and some smaller local municipalities, providing another boost to hundreds of thousands of low-paid workers in retail, healthcare and other industries. Some experts say the growing economy should lessen the chance of companies having to cut hours or lay off workers to afford the latest step increase toward a $15 minimum wage for larger employers in 2020. (Companies with fewer than 26 workers have another year to catch up.) As of Sunday, the minimum wage in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Pasadena is $13.25 for large employers, up from $12. Smaller companies saw a $1.50 increase to $12. Unincorporated areas of L.A. County had the same increases. California is also heading toward $15 an hour, but wont get there until two years after the local municipalities. Its a good time to be raising the wages,Ž said Daniel Flaming, president of the Economic Roundtable, a local research group, noting many companies are seeing growing pro“ts and are already facing pressure to lift pay. Across the United States, there are now more job openings than unemployed people, the “rst time thats happened since the government started collecting that data in 2000. And in California, unemployment was 4.2 percent in May, a record low for a survey that began in 1976. L.A. County unemployment clocked in at 4.4 percent. The county rate was slightly lower in November and December 2017; otherwise, thats the lowest since at least 1989. Wage growth had been stubbornly slow during the economic recovery, but there are signs its accelerating. During the “rst “ve months of this year, average weekly earnings in L.A. County rose an average of 5.8 percent from a year earlier, the highest rate of increase since 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. They had been essentially ”at over the same period in 2016 and 2017. But many employers still resist raising permanent pay levels. Homebuilder consultant Don Neff with LJP Construction Services said many construction companies would “nd it tough to turn a reasonable pro“t if they raised pay. Instead, theyre switching from a bi-monthly pay schedule to a weekly one to keep and attract employees. Some builders are turning to automation, choosing to construct the walls of a house or apartment in a factory. That means big business for Entekra, a company that builds parts of a home its factory just outside Modesto. My biggest problem at the moment is having to turn away work,Ž Chief Executive Gerard McCaughey said. The Economic Roundtable estimates that about 624,000 workers in Los Angeles will see a pay bump from the latest minimum wage hike. Not all workers are gaining ground. Mar Martinez, organizing coordinator with the Garment Worker Center, said she doesnt expect that the workers the group helps in downtown Los Angeles factories will see much of a bene“t. Already, too many employers illegally pay garment workers less than the minimum wage, because major retailers dont pay their web of contractors a rate that can support it, she said. Garment pay has “rmed in some cases, Martinez said, but she attributes the slight boost to more aggressive enforcement from the California labor commissioners of“ce. Even as the economy improves, some employers say the minimum wage hikes are squeezing them. In May, restaurateur George Abou-Daoud closed his Hollywood restaurant Farida, which employed about 20 workers and was frequented by middleand uppermiddle class diners who paid an average of $13 for a dish. AbouDaoud said he was barely breaking even as it was, and if he had to pay a minimum of $12 an hour, Some employers wage bidding wars for scarce workersBy ANDREW KHOURILOS ANGELES TIMESBIDDING | 9 SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTO adno=50520512 Mission Driven...

Page 32 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 JOBS 2 At 26, Rariety Monford worries far less about saving for retirement than paying down $60,000 in student loan debt. So her employer has decided to do the saving for her. Abbott Laboratories Tuesday announced a perk designed to ease the “nancial squeeze facing employees like Monford who are burdened with heavy student debt that causes them to forgo critical years of saving. The medical-device maker said that U.S. employees who contribute at least 2 percent their salaries to paying off student loans will get a 5 percent 401(k) match from Abbott. Thats the same percentage given to employees who contribute 2 percent to their 401(k)s. The new bene“t will allow employees to accumulate savings in their retirement accounts without committing any of their own money. Helping employees pay student debt has become an increasingly popular, though still rare, bene“t employers are using to attract and retain young talent. More than 60 percent of students who graduate from college in Illinois have student debt, with an average bill of nearly $30,000. Meanwhile, two-thirds of Americans ages 21 to 32 have nothing saved for retirement, according to the National Institute on Retirement Security. Most employers offering student loan repayment assistance make monthly cash payments against an employees debt to the loan holder. But those payments are taxed, and they dont necessarily result in employees putting more money into retirement savings, said Steve Fussell, executive vice president of human resources at Abbott. To more directly help young people build a nest egg, we set about doing this in a way that others werent doing it,Ž Fussell said. The north suburban Chicago company, which employs 29,000 workers in the U.S., hires 1,000 people under 35 each year. Many of them have masters degrees or doctorates and therefore more that typical debt. Younger employees with student debt contribute less to their 401(k)s than those without. Fussell estimated that 2,500 to 3,000 of Abbotts employees will use the bene“t, which has no time or contribution limits. Employees who join the company with starting annual pay of $70,000 and take advantage of the program could have $54,000 accumulate in their 401(k) accounts over 10 years without any contributions of their own, the company said. Thats assuming a 6 percent average annual return and yearly merit pay increases of 3 percent. Helping employees build future “nancial security “ts into Abbotts other investments to build a sustainable talent pipeline, Fussell said. The program does have a cost, but we think the (return on investment) is tremendous,Ž he said. For Monford, an engineer in Abbotts professional development program, the new bene“t will give her muchneeded breathing room. I have to think about the here and now, and whats most important is paying off my loans,Ž said Monford, who graduated two years ago with a degree in biomedical engineering from North Carolina A&T State University. But I know that if I dont save, Im missing out on that time, and time is the most important thing to accumulate savings.Ž Monford commits 14 percent of her salary „ about $800 per month „ toward her student loans, plus 2 percent to her 401(k). With the new perk, she plans to redirect the 2 percent to more aggressively pay off her loans or help her get through graduate school or maybe shell take a vacation. It lifts the burden, and Im able to pursue what makes me happy,Ž said Monford, who lives in Irving, Texas. Paige Jones, 24, of Evanston, said she plans to use the new bene“t to more quickly pay down the considerable debtŽ she has from graduate school at Northwestern University. Jones, who works as a communications management specialist at Abbott, now puts 5 percent of her salary to pay down student loans and 2 percent into her 401(k). The hit to her paycheck has squeezed other parts of her life, such as limiting where she can live and what kind of apartment and car she can afford. It really shows that Abbott cares about their employees and the longevity of their employees,Ž said Jones, who lives in Evanston. I de“nitely think it makes me more loyal to the company.Ž The mounting student debt crisis „ with outstanding loans nearing $1.5 trillion nationally „ has made student-loan assistance a sought-after employer bene“t. American Student Assistance, a nonpro“t organization, surveyed 500 workers and found that student loan help ranked third in most important bene“ts, after health insurance and 401(k) and before other perks like professional membership payments and commuter bene“ts. Nearly 90 percent of respondents said they would stay with an employer for “ve years if it helped pay off student loans. In another survey, 65 percent of the 827 borrowers polled by student loan marketplace LendEDU said they consider student loan repayment assistance when looking for jobs. Many employers are expressing interest in offering the perk. Chicago-based outplacement “rm Challenger, Gray & Christmas surveyed 100 human resources executives last year and found 72 percent planned to offer student loan assistance, though only 14 percent had plans to implement the bene“t soon. The perk remains rare. Just 4 percent of employers offer programs that help employees repay student loans, a share that hasnt budged in the past three years, according to the Society for Human Resource Managements annual survey of about 3,500 human resources professionals, released last week. That doesnt surprise Matt Goines, an account executive at Assurance, a Schaumburg-based insurance and bene“ts brokerage. About 75 percent of employers want to hear about student loan assistance, but only two of Goines clients have implemented programs to offer it, he said. Thats because many employers are trying to manage rising medical costs without affecting existing bene“t levels. Those that do offer student loan repayment, such as consulting firms and staffing companies, tend to have large populations of young employees with fewer health care claims and therefore lower insurance costs, Goines said. He is also seeing social service nonprofits use the perk to combat high turnover. Most employers offering student loan repayment are large corporations, said Liz Supinski, director of data science at the Society for Human Resource Management. Small organizations may have a harder time affording it without a tax deduction for such loan repayments, she said. If some of the pending federal or state legislation, which proposes employer tax deductions or credits for loan repayment, is passed, I think we will see more uptake of this benefit by smaller employers,Ž Supinski said in an email. Rise Interactive, a Chicago-based digital marketing agency, started offering student loan repayment last year after employee surveys revealed that people didnt like the 401(k) plan. When it dug deeper, the company found that the problem wasnt the plan but that many of its 200 employees „ who at the time were an average age of 28 „ couldnt afford to participate in it, said Nicole Skaluba, director of employee services. About a quarter of its employees now participate in the loan help program, which contributes $50 a month directly to their loans. Rise coordinates the payments through Peanut Butter, a Chicagobased tech company that manages the relationships with the loan holders so that Rise can avoid the paperwork and stay out of their employees private loan information, Skaluba said. It remains to be seen if the benefit reduces turnover among young employees, notorious for moving from job to job, Skaluba said. In the longer term, I think it will bear better fruit on the retention side and the attraction side,Ž Skaluba said. If they are considering two different companies, it may tip their decisionmaking our way as well.Ž One concern that employers express when considering whether to offer student loan repayment programs is that employees without student loans may feel miffed, said Meera Oliva, chief marketing of“cer at Gradi“, a Boston-based company that helps employers implement student loan repayment programs. But that hasnt played out, she said. Student loan debt is such a huge issue that even people who dont have it feel good working at a company that addresses it,Ž she said. Gradi“, which launched in 2016 with professional services giant PricewaterhouseCoopers its “rst client, grew to 350 clients by the end of last year, Oliva said. The popular new perk companies are using to attract millennials Employers have wide latitude to set the parameters of their loan help programs. Some offer the perk only to new college graduates or particular departments, and others increase the amount paid over time to entice people to stay, Oliva said. They can decide whether to set monetary caps or pay until students are no longer in debt. Most employers contribute $100 monthly and cap the contribution at $5,000 to $10,000. About 8,000 employees are enrolled in PwCs program, which pays $1,200 a year for up to six years, according to the company. The program can reduce participants loan principal and interest by as much as $10,000 and shorten payoff periods by up to three years, PwC said.As crushing student debt keeps young people from saving, some employers step up to ease the squeezeBy ALEXIA ELEJALDERUIZCHICAGO TRIBUNE SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTO PETSAREGOODFORYOURMENTALANDPHYSICALWELLBEING.Find that special companion in the Classifieds today! adno=50520514

Many restaurants are passing the wage hike on to customers by raising menu prices. AbouDaoud said he may have tried. But after factoring in his non-minimum wage employees asking for a raise „ something he has seen time and time again after previous increases „ he didnt think diners would pay enough to cover his increased costs. Hes also cut hours at a Hollywood deli he owns. You can only spend as much as you bring in,Ž said Abou-Daoud, who before the minimum wages increase passed in 2015 campaigned unsuccessfully to let tips count toward the requirement. Various studies have found little change in employment from minimum wage increases. However, one study last year from the University of Washington did suggest that when Seattle increased its minimum to $13, employers there cut hours and jobs for the lowest-paid workers. Dave Smith, an economist at the Pepperdine University Graziadio Business School, is not a fan of minimum wage increases, believing that government subsidies are a more effective way to help low-wage workers. But he doesnt expect too many employers to close their doors as a result. We have a strong economy and there is shortage of workers and upward pressure on those wages,Ž he said. Thats particularly true in the trucking industry, which is battling a worsening driver shortage amid rising demand for consumer goods and just-in-time shipments. Like many companies, KKW Trucking in Pomona has been turning away shipments because it doesnt have the drivers to haul goods. In June, the company raised pay 11 percent for the notoriously tough job, which requires nights on the road away from family. KKW updated its online ads with the new pay rate and emailed previous applicants. Chief Financial Of“cer Lynnette Brown said the company did so even though it cant recoup costs right away because of its long-term contracts with retailers. What is really needed is to raise the wages to the point this type of job is attractive to people,Ž she said. Its only been a couple weeks, but the company is already seeing results. The phone is ringing a little bit moreŽ and the quality of applicants is signi“cantly improved, Brown said.BIDDINGFROM PAGE 1


Page 40 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 JOBS 10 WASHINGTON (AP) „ Promoting a robust economy, President Donald Trump pressed U.S. companies and trade associations on Thursday to enhance their job training programs as employers search for quali“ed skilled workers to “ll vacancies. We need people with training,Ž Trump declared. At an event in the East Room, Trump told corporate leaders and workers that the nations students and workers need more opportunities to attain apprenticeships, vocational opportunities and job training. The president said nearly two dozen companies and trade organizations had agreed to sign a pledge to provide the training for their workforce during the next “ve years. Companies are pouring back into our country „ companies that frankly left 10 and 20 years ago „ and theyre coming back and we need people to work for those companies,Ž Trump said. We need talented people. We need people with training.Ž The presidents 2016 campaign included a pitch to help the forgotten men and womenŽ who have suffered amid globalization and a shifting economy. The pledge and an executive order Trump signed creating a national council for U.S. workers and a workforce policy advisory board aim to address the needs of manufacturing workers as the president has engaged in trade disputes that have rattled the economy. The White House said the Pledge to Americas WorkersŽ would provide at least 3.8 million new career opportunities for students and workers over the next “ve years, including apprenticeships, workbased learning and continuing education. Some of the companies signing the pledge include Apple, Boeing, General Motors, FedEx, The Home Depot, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Northrop Grumman and Walmart. Several trade associations also committed to the job training initiative, and Trump welcomed several members of Congress and state and local of“cials, including Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The administration wants to bring millions of Americans who are not working or searching for work „ and therefore arent included in the unemployment rate „ back into the job market. More people with jobs would accelerate economic growth and could help the White House achieve its goal of sustained growth of 3 percent or higher. The additional workers could also help “ll 6.6 million open jobs, a near-record high and more than the number of unemployed workers. Yet a lack of skills is just one reason some Americans have given up the job search. Economic research has found that opioid addiction and related health problems have sidelined millions of Americans. Most labor economists agree that there are plenty of middle-skill jobs that dont require a college degree but do need post-high school education or training. These include jobs in advanced manufacturing, where workers on factory ”oors increasingly deal with software and robotics. Many health care jobs such as radiology and physical therapy are growing and dont require college degrees. The same is true for marketing and sales jobs in banking and insurance “rms. The aging population and retirement of baby boomers is also a challenge. The proportion of Americans ages 25 to 54 who are working or looking for work has risen steadily in the past three years. But that increase has largely been offset by retirements, leaving the overall percentage of Americans in the workforce stuck at about 63 percent. Trump made a big push last year into promoting apprenticeships as a form of job training, but he declined to commit signi“cant funding, and the results of his initiative have yet to deliver on his promises. For the former reality television star, the discussion about apprenticeships was irresistible. Thats an interesting word for me to be saying, right? The Apprentice. I never actually put that together until just now. That was a good experience, I will tell you that,Ž Trump said to laughter. I cant get away from that word. Its a great word!ŽTrump promotes job training as employers search for workersBy KEN THOMAS and CHRISTOPHER RUGABERASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump pauses while speaking before signing an Executive Order that establishes a National Council for the American Worker, during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Deciding to leave a job is seldom an easy decision. However, its a more common decision than many people may know, as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates the average worker holds 10 different jobs before age 40. People change jobs for a variety of reasons. Some do so because of better opportunities elsewhere, while others simply need a change. Regardless of whats motivating a job change, leaving a place of employment can elicit various emotions, including some that may contribute to negative thoughts about a current employer. But its always best to leave a job gracefully, which can pay dividends down the road. The following are seven strategies people can employ as they leave their jobs to ensure those exits go as smoothly as possible. 1. Watch out for social media. Its best to keep resignation plans to yourself and off of social media. You never know who is reading your posts, and bad-mouthing a soon-to-be-former employer can lead to hurt feelings and poor references. Resist the urge to rant about whats making you unhappy at work or brag about a new position to your social network. 2. Play by the rules. Your employer may have a plan in place for how the company prefers resignations to be handled. The standard twoto three-weeks notice is a guideline. Visit with human resources if you need more information, such as whether or not a resignation letter or other documentation is required. 3. Speak with your manager “rst Its respectful for your immediate manager or supervisor to learn of your departure “rst. This gives him or her ample time to put a plan in place to “ll your position. The more notice you can give, the more goodwill youre building on your way out the door. Schedule a meeting for this purpose; do not make it an informal chat by the water cooler. Resist the urge to quit via email or text. Resigning requires face-to-face communication. Present a concise letter of resignation as well. Dont call out colleagues or air your grievances in the letter. 4. Announce your departure. Work collectively with your manager and other higher-ups to decide how to best handle the announcement to other employees. 5. Train your replacement and prepare “nal assignments. Volunteer to train or assist with getting your replacement set up. If you have any outstanding projects or documents, be sure to tie up any loose ends before leaving. Leave behind instructions or a guidebook if you think it will help your replacement perform their duties more effectively. 6. Keep the momentum. It can be tempting to phone it in as you near departure day, but this is inadvisable. Do your job to the best of your ability up until you say your goodbyes. 7. Pack on your own time. Cause as little disruption as possible by packing belongings before or after of“ce hours. Respect the working environment, recognizing that your coworkers still need to get their jobs done. Quitting a job can be full of mixed emotions. Just be sure to time it correctly and leave in as positive a way as possible to maintain a strong professional network.Seven steps in how to leave a current job gracefullyMETRO CREATIVE SERVICES SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTO Moving can be a considerable undertaking. While working professionals who are single or married with no children may “nd it easier to move than men and women with families, its fair to say that anyone who is moving in the near future has some signi“cant work ahead of them. In its Job Relocation Survey, the moving company Allied Van Lines found that people move for a variety of reasons. Fifty percent of the 3,500 respondents indicated they relocated for career advancement or money, and many more indicated they relocated because of a job transfer (12 percent), their companies moved (9 percent) and to be closer to family/relationships (8 percent). Regardless of whats motivating men and women to relocate, and whether or not theyre relocating on their own or uprooting their families, various strategies can make a forthcoming move go more smoothly.Inquire about relocation assistanceThe Allied survey found that 63 percent of companies offered relocation packages. Thats a considerable perk, as moving can be expensive, especially for adults moving to different parts of the country. Asking about relocation expenses before being offered a job can be tricky, but some companies may mention such packages in their job ads or in their initial meetings with out-of-town candidates. Ask what relocation packages cover Relocation packages vary from company to company. The Allied Survey found that 54 percent of companies that offered such packages covered moving expenses, while 21 percent gave new hires a lump sum of money to use as they deemed necessary. One in “ve companies even sponsored trips to search for homes. Adults who are offered relocation packages should get the speci“cs so they can start creating moving budgets.Emphasize organization Much of the stress associated with relocating can be traced to the logistics of uprooting oneself and ones family. Men and women who are unaccustomed to making lists may want to start, as doing so can help keep track of all the tasks that need to be completed before hitting the road. Various unique tasks, from canceling utilities to changing insurance policies, must be completed before moving, and its easy to lose track of whats been done and what hasnt. Maintaining a to-do list and checking off tasks as theyre completed can simplify the relocation process.Rent your first homeThe Allied survey found that 31 percent of respondents indicated the most challenging part of relocating for a job was “nding a home, while 29 percent felt acclimating to their new community was the most challenging aspect of their relocation. Adults who rent their “rst homes upon relocating can remove some of the pressure to “nd the perfect home, knowing full well their “rst home in their new community will be temporary. If possible, rent in a location that makes it easy to immerse yourself in your new community, which should make the adjustment easier. In addition, place items that are unnecessary for day-to-day life in storage. Having some of your possessions already packed should make your next move less stressful. Relocating for a job can be exciting and stressful. But there are ways to make moving go smoothly.

The News Wire Sunday, July 22, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Volunteers provide food, care in wake of Iowa tornadoesSee page 8 BRANSON, Mo. „Grab the baby!Ž Those were the last words Tia Coleman recalls her sister-in-law yelling before the tourist boat they were on sank into a Missouri lake, killing 17 people, including nine of Colemans family members. A huge wave hit, scattering passengers on the vessel known as a duck boat into Table Rock Lake near Branson, Coleman said. When the Indianapolis woman came up for air, she was alone. She prayed. I said, Lord, please, let me get to my babies,Ž she told reporters from her wheelchair Saturday in the lobby of a hospital where shes recovering after swallowing lake water. ... If they dont make it, Lord, take me too. I dont need to be here.Ž Coleman recalled spotting the rescue boat and managed to reach it, somehow.Ž Earlier, from her hospital bed, she recounted to television station KOLR her sisterin-laws last words. Colemans husband and three children, ages 9, 7, and 1; her 45-year-old sister-in-law and 2-year-old nephew; her motherin-law and father-in-law and her husbands uncle all died Thursday night in the deadliest accident of its kind in nearly two decades. Others killed included a Missouri couple who had just celebrated a birthday; another Missouri couple on what was planned as their last extended vacation; an Illinois woman who died while saving her granddaughters life; an Arkansas father and son; and a retired pastor who was the boats operator. None of the 31 passengers on board were wearing a life jacket, according to an incident report released Saturday by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. State and federal investigators were trying to determine what sent the vessel, originally built for military use in World War II, to its demise. An initial assessment blamed thunderstorms and winds that approached hurricane strength, but it wasnt clear why the amphibious vehicle even ventured into the water. Coleman said the crew told passengers they were going into the water “rst, before the landbased part of their tour, because of the incoming storm. The area had been under a severe thunderstorm watch for hours and a severe thunderstorm warning for more than 30 minutes before the boat sank. Suzanne Smagala with Ripley Entertainment, which owns Ride the Ducks in Branson, said it was the companys only accident in more than 40 years of operation. The company hasnt commented Survivor says life vests not worn on boat that capsizedBy MARGARET STAFFORDASSOCIATED PRESSPARIS (AP) „ French investigators on Saturday raided the house of one of French President Emmanuel Macrons former top security aides, a man who was caught on camera beating a young protester in May. Alexandre Benallas involvement in the beating and questions about the governments handling of the affair is turning into Macrons biggest political crisis since he took of“ce last year. The presidential Elysee Palace “red bodyguard Benalla a day before police raided his home Saturday morning in the Parisian suburb of IssyLes-Moulineaux, according to the Paris prosecutors of“ce. Benalla was identi“ed earlier this week by the Le Monde newspaper for beating a young protester during May Day protests while wearing a police helmet. He and a second man are facing potential charges and are in police custody until Sunday. Regular parliamentary work has been paralyzed for two days with questions about why it took 21‡2 months to inform judicial of“cials and why Benalla stayed in his post during that time. Questions over whether there was an of“cial cover-up of his actions have also been raised, and whether Elysee employees have a measure of impunity not granted to others. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb will face questions from parliament next week to see if the government failed to properly discipline Benalla. Despite his of“cial change to a desk job, Benalla was seen this month on the ground with police at several high-pro“le events, including the return home Monday of Frances soccer World Cupwinning team, an event attended by hundreds of thousands. The belated referral of the issue to judicial authorities and what was widely viewed as insuf“cient action at the time by the Elysee Palace has triggered a “restorm from the opposition. Macron has continued to keep a low pro“le and has, thus far, not spoken about the events.French investigators raid home of Macrons ex-bodyguard BOAT | 4BRIDGEWATER, N.J. „ Donald Trump said Saturday he “nds it inconceivableŽ that a lawyer would tape a client, as the president weighed in after the disclosure that in the weeks before the 2016 election, his then-personal attorney secretly recorded their discussion about a potential payment for a former Playboy models account of having an affair with Trump. The recording was part of a large collection of documents and electronic records seized earlier this year by federal authorities from Michael Cohen, the longtime Trump “xer. In a tweet, Trump called such taping totally unheard of & perhaps illegal.Ž He also asserted, without elaborating, in post: The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!Ž Cohen had made a practice of recording conversations, unbeknownst to those he was speaking with. Most states, including New York, allow for recordings of conversations with only the consent of one party; other states require all parties to agree to a recording or have mixed laws on the matter. It was not immediately clear where Trump and Cohen were located at the time of the call. Cohens recording adds to questions about whether Trump tried to quash damaging stories before the election. Trumps campaign had said it knew nothing about any payment to ex-centerfold Karen McDougal. Transparency groups and Democrats have argued that the secret efforts to silence Trump accusers, including a payment to adult “lm actress Stormy Daniels, should be investigated by the Federal Election Commission as potential violations of campaign “nance laws, which require disclosure of campaign expenditures. Trumps attorneys have argued that any payments to accusers would have been made regardless of his presidential candidacy, and that no violation occurred. The recording could also further entangle the president in a criminal investigation that for months has targeted Cohen. The erstwhile Trump loyalist has hired a new attorney, Clinton White House veteran Lanny Davis, and disassociated himself from the president as both remain under investigation. Cohen has not been charged with a crime. Current Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said the payment was never made and the brief recording shows Trump did nothing wrong. The transaction that Michael is talking about on the tape never took place, but whats important is: If it did take place, the president said it has to be done correctly and it has to be done by checkŽ to keep a proper record of it, Giuliani said. Davis said any attempt at spin cannot change what is on the tape.Ž When the recording is heard, it will not hurt Mr. Cohen,Ž Davis said in a statement. The recording was “rst reported Friday by The New York Times. The FBI raided Cohens of“ce, home and hotel room in April, searching in part for information about payments to McDougal and porn actress Stormy Daniels, who received a $130,000 payment from Cohen before the election to keep quiet about a sexual relationship she says she had with Trump. The FBI investigation is separate from special counsel Robert ASPEN, Colo. „ China is waging a quiet kind of cold warŽ against the United States, using all its resources to try to replace America as the leading power in the world, a top CIA expert on Asia said Friday. Beijing doesnt want to go to war, he said, but the current communist government, under President Xi Jingping, is subtly working on multiple fronts to undermine the U.S. in ways that are different than the more well-publicized activities being employed by Russia. I would argue ... that what theyre waging against us is fundamentally a cold war „ a cold war not like we saw during THE Cold War (between the U.S. and the Soviet Union) but a cold war by de“nition,Ž Michael Collins, deputy assistant director of the CIAs East Asia mission center, said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. Rising U.S.-China tension goes beyond the trade dispute playing out in a tariff tit-for-tat between the two nations. There is concern over Chinas pervasive efforts to steal business secrets and details about high-tech research being conducted in the U.S. The Chinese military is expanding and being modernized and the U.S., as well as other nations, have complained about Chinas construction of military outposts on islands in the South China Sea. I would argue that its the Crimea of the East,Ž Collins said, referring to Russias brash annexation of Ukraines Crimean Peninsula, which was condemned throughout the West. Collins comments track warnings about Chinas rising in”uence issued by others who spoke earlier this week at the security conference. The alarm bells come at a time when Washington needs Chinas help in ending its nuclear standoff with North Korea.Trump finds it inconceivable lawyer would tape a clientCIA: China waging quiet kind of cold war against USBy ZEKE MILLERASSOCIATED PRESSBy DEB RIECHMANNASSOCIATED PRESSTAPE | 4 AP FILE PHOTOIn this Wednesday April 26, 2017 le photo, Emmanuel Macron, right, is anked by his bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, left background in northern France.

MARIPOSA, Calif. (AP) „ A California forest “re just west of Yosemite National Park was steadily growing Saturday after two more “re“ghters were injured while battling the ”ames in blazing summer heat to protect mountain communities in the Sierra Nevada. The Ferguson “re was churning northward within Sierra National Forest, sending up smoke that obscured valley views in the park. Yosemite remained open, but one of its scenic routes, Glacier Point Road, was closed to stage “re“ghters. Crews were getting a break from light winds but were contending with rugged terrain and sweltering temperatures, said Deputy Chief Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The vegetation is so dry out there, and its so hot. This “re will continue to grow,Ž he said. Flames have charred about 42 square miles of timber. Two “re“ghters, who were hospitalized Friday after suffering back injuries, have since been released and were expected to fully recover, said “re spokesman Rich Eagan. A total of four “re“ghters have been injured since the blaze broke out July 13. A bulldozer operator was killed the day after the “re started while trying to stop its spread. More than 2,800 “re“ghters aided by a ”eet of aircraft were battling the “re, but only 7 percent of its perimeter was contained. Several areas were under mandatory evacuation orders. Residents of other communities were advised to be ready to leave if necessary, but no homes had been damaged or destroyed. Wild“res burned or smoldered elsewhere in the state, including east of Los Angeles near the Riverside County city of Corona. Most evacuations ordered at the height of the “re Thursday afternoon were lifted that night, but “re“ghters had extensive work to do to complete a containment line around the 250-acre burn scar.2 more firefighters hurt battling blaze near Yosemite AP PHOTOIn this July 16, le photo, the Ferguson Fire burns along a ridgeline in unincorporated Mariposa County, Calif.

The Geneva-based medical charity, Doctors Without Borders „ known as MSF, its French abbreviation „ has closed its free, round-the-clock maternity hospital in Haitis capital. The facility, called CRUO, an acronym for its French name, was opened after Haitis catastrophic 2010 earthquake. It admitted its last expectant mother last Sunday „ three months ahead of its scheduled closing. It was a temporary structure that has a life span that already has been surpassed, and requires signi“cant investments to turn it into a permanent, more long-term structure,Ž Michelle Chouinard, MSFs head of mission, said about the prefabricated structure that was built from shipping containers. Its not MSFs role to remain inde“nitely.Ž The hospital closing is the “rst of two for MSF. The organization opened them after many of Haitis health care facilities collapsed in the earthquake, and a deadly cholera epidemic hit 10 months later. The charitys 122-bed trauma hospital in Tabarre, which receives a large number of head trauma cases and broken bones related to the countrys motorcycle culture, is scheduled to close permanently in June 2019. But other medical facilities run by the charity will remain open. People are saying MSF is leaving. MSF is not leaving,Ž Chouinard said. She said the groups 40-bed severe-burn center, 24-hour sexual violence center, 24-hour emergency clinic in a Port-au-Prince slum and a facility in Porta-Piment, which was opened after 2016s Hurricane Matthew in southern Haiti, will all remain. With the number of con”icts and other humanitarian crises increasing around the world, demands are up for the charitys emergency medical aid, Chouinard said. Also, the situation in Haiti is not the same as it was in 2010, when the charity was in the midst of handing over some projects to the government when earthquake forced it to put plans on hold, she said. MSF does have standards of care for our patients,Ž she said, noting that running the maternity hospital, which admitted an average of 500 patients a day last year, is expensive. In Haiti, that has meant not only providing life-saving care to women with complicated pregnancies and babies with low birth weights, but also being on the front lines of the cholera epidemic. At choleras height, MSF was often the “rst to dispatch emergency response teams to far-”ung reaches of the country affected by the deadly water-borne disease. In 2016, when a strike crippled the countrys public hospitals, the Tabarre facility was the only respite for those unable to afford private care. That year, it treated 15,228 patients in the emergency room and performed 8,088 surgeries. Despite the care, MSF has not been immune from criticism in Haiti, where nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs, are often accused of undermining the government because of their ability to provide services free and pay top dollar for staff. That has led to a complicated „ and sometimes contentious „ relationship between governments and NGOs. It is especially so in Haiti where this year President Jovenel Moise, after a sexual misconduct scandal involving the staff of British charity Oxfam, singled out Doctors Without Borders. In an interview with Reuters, Moise called for an investigation of the medical charity saying it had to repatriate about 17 people for misconduct which was not explained.Ž A Doctors Without Borders spokesman at the time said it was unclear what Moise was referring to. Chouinard, in an interview with the Miami Herald after the presidents comment, said MSF takes allegations of abuse and harassment very seriously,Ž and over the years has developed policies to address such situations, but declined to address the allegations directly. Haitian leaders have long been harsh critics of NGOs, while also enjoying the comfort of knowing that they ful“ll a need. But critics say the reliance on NGOs weakens governments, which often dont consider the fact that funding often runs out and programs go away. In the case of Haiti, the end of MSFs 12-year investment in battling Haitis childbirth crisis, and the eventual closing of the trauma hospital, couldnt have come at a worse time. The country currently doesnt have a functioning government after the resignation of its prime minister and his Cabinet after this months riots over fuel prices. The new government, when it is formed, will have to “gure out how to absorb MSFs services and costs while addressing Haitis dysfunctional health care system. Chouinard and others say MSF had long warned Haitian health ministry of“cials that the maternity and trauma hospitals were temporary. Dr. Claude Surena, former president of the Haitian Medical Association, who was part of the Health Ministrys team that led Haitis response after the earthquake said closing the maternity hospital, which treated pregnant women with eclampsia and pre-eclampsia and was the only health facility that specialized in expectant mothers with cholera, will have a big impact. The Health Ministry, he said, will have to “nd a way to gradually absorb such cases and improve health care delivery. According to the World Bank, Haiti spends less on health care per capita than its closest neighbors. The Dominican Republic spends $180 per capita; Cuba, $781; and the Latin American and Caribbean region overall, $336. Haiti spends just $13. Maternal and infant mortality rates are also “ve and three times, respectively, higher than the regional average, the bank said in a report it published last year while calling on Haitis government to increase health care spending. With 359 deaths for every 100,000 pregnancies, according to the World Health Organizations 2015 statistics, Haiti remains the country in the Western Hemisphere with the highest maternal mortality,Ž Chouinard said.Doctors Without Borders closes the first of two hospitals in HaitiBy JACQUELINE CHARLESMIAMI HERALD HAVANA „ Cuban lawmakers on Saturday approved the Cabinet named by new President Miguel Diaz-Canel, keeping most of the ministers from Rauls Castro government in place, except for in the key post of economic reform. Cubas national assembly was also considering a proposed reform of its 1976 constitution that would reshape its government, courts and economy, creating the position of prime minister alongside the president, although it would maintain the Communist Party as the sole political force in the country. Among the ministers kept in place in Diaz-Canels Council of Ministers were three historic vice presidents: revolutionary commanders Ramiro Valdes, Ricardo Cabrisas and Gen. Ulises Rosales del Toro. Foreign Minster Bruno Rodriguez, Foreign Trade Minister Rodrigo Malmierca and Finance Minister Lina Peraza will also remain in their posts. The main change was the absence of economic reforms minister Marino Murillo who had accompanied Raul Castro for a decade while he implemented modest openings to private enterprise in the socialist economy. Diaz-Canel replaced Castro in April. Cuban officials say the old constitution does not reflect changes made in Cuba in recent years. The new charter would create new recognitions of the free market and private property in Cuban society, and create a new presumption of innocence in the justice system. The proposed reform is also expected to be approved in a later national referendum. The new constitution will maintain rights such as religious freedom but will also make explicit the principle of nondiscrimination due to gender identity.Cuba approves new leaders Cabinet with old facesBy ANDREA RODRIGUEZASSOCIATED PRESSEgypt hikes natural gas prices by up to 75 percent Irans top leader endorses warning over oil supplies Japanese Princess begins visit to Brazils biggest city Train in Greece hits, kills 2 migrants near Turkish border Pakistani court convicts ex-lawmaker for substance misuseCAIRO (AP) „ Egypt raised natural gas prices for households and businesses on Saturday by between 33.3 and 75 percent, the latest among tough austerity measures aimed at rebuilding the countrys economy battered by years of unrest since a 2011 uprising. The governments decision, published in the of“cial gazette on Saturday, should come into effect starting August. It sets the price for gas consumption of up to 30 cubic meters to 0.175 Egyptian pounds up from 0.100 pounds per cubic meter, an increase of 75 percent. Meanwhile, gas consumption between 30-60 cubic meters went up by 42.8 percent, from 0.175 Egyptian pounds to 0.250 pounds per cubic meter. Consumption of over 60 cubic meters was upped by 33.3 percent, from 0.225 pounds to 0.300 pounds per cubic meter. The move is likely to further fan the ”ames of popular discontent, especially among poor and middle-class Egyptians who have borne the brunt of the governments economic reform program. In recent months, Egypt introduced its latest wave of price hikes for fuel, drinking water and electricity. It also raised the price of new cellular phone lines and monthly cellular phone bills. Charges for issuing passports and car licenses also went up steeply. The austerity policies are part of measures taken to meet demands by the International Monetary Fund for a $12 billion bailout loan to support the governments reform plan. Egypt secured the three-year loan in 2016. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi says the reforms, he implemented after he took of“ce in 2014, have put Egypt on the right trackŽ and that they will spur economic growth by over seven percent in the coming years. He urged Egyptians to be patient with the reforms, which the government says should start bene“ting citizens within two years. TEHRAN, Iran (AP) „ Irans top leader has endorsed a warning made earlier by the countrys president over Mideast oil supplies.

It hit two people walking on the tracks at ISLAMABAD (AP) „ A court convicted a former lawmaker and candidate for the national assembly Saturday giving him a life sentence for the misuse of a controlled substance he obtained for his pharmaceutical company. Hanif Abbasi, a leader of the former ruling party Pakistan Muslim League-N, was immediately arrested following the hearing in the garrison city of Rawalpindi after Judge Mohammad Akram Khan announced the verdict in late session. Abbasi, the two-time lawmaker who is contesting the upcoming election from Rawalpindi, was accused of misusing 500kg of ephedrine, which he obtained for his company, Grays Pharmaceuticals, in 2010. The Anti-Narcotics Force had registered a case against Abbasi and his accomplices in June 2012. ANF of“cials claimed the substance was sold to narcotics smugglers who used it to make drugs for partying. Earlier in the day, an independent candidate for parliament shot himself to death after his sons disagreed with his politics. Of“cer Ishfaq Khan said that Mohammad Ahmed Mughal was running for of“ce in both the national and provincial assemblies from the central city of Faisalabad. He said Mughal faced opposition at home as his sons supported candidates from the former ruling party Pakistan Muslim League for both seats.

(AP) „ Police responding to a 911 hang-up call from an abandoned building in western New York found something they werent expecting: a 4-foot-long alligator. WKBW-TV in Buffalo reports officers in the city of Batavia were checking out the inside of the building on Monday for anyone in distress when they found the gator in a make-shift aquarium. Officers notified the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which sent an environmental conservation officer to the scene. The reptile was handed over to the DEC officer. The agency is now investigating. State environmental conservation laws prohibit the sale or ownership of alligators and other dangerous animals in New York.ODD NEWS Cops responding to 911 call find 4-foot gator in buildingDear Mr. Berko: Malls and shopping centers have fallen signi“cantly in value. I want the names of six mall REITs selling below book value and six mall REITs that have comeback potential. Then tell me why you like them. And I want all of them to yield over 15 percent. Ill invest $10,000 in each. „ LL, Detroit Dear LL: Things were so much less complicated when the world was ”at! Real estate investment trusts have trailed the S&P 500 by 45 percent in the past three years, including dividends. Put another way, the price component of the S&P 500 has gained 42 percent in that time frame, while REIT prices have declined by 3 percent. Since March, REITs have underperformed the S&P 500 by 9 percent. Thats not good! Many of todays equity REITs are seriously undervalued, because they trade at 7 to 16 percent discounts or more to the market value of their portfolios. Some regional mall REITs trade at 30 to 65 percent discounts to net asset value. So if those REITs sold all their properties at todays value and paid off their mortgages, the shareholders would receive between 30 and 65 percent more than what they paid for the stock. For example, if you paid $10 for a REIT trading at a 40 percent discount to NAV and management liquidated its properties, youd get your $10 back plus a 40 percent premium. Therefore, some of the huge discounts in regional mall REITs may be an opportunity for super-speculators who can jump over tall buildings and land on their feet. One REIT Im comfortable recommending as a wild-hair speculation is CBL Properties, once one of the darlings of Wall Street. CBL traded at a record high of $48 in January 2007 and then traded at a record low of $2.60 in March 2009. Today CBL trades at $5.98, which is 27 cents below the companys $6.25 book value. CBL owns, manages, acquires, develops and leases regional shopping malls, open-air and mixed-use centers, and of“ce properties. CBL owns 119 properties located in 27 states (mainly in the Southeast and Midwest), comprising 74 million square feet, and manages 6 million square feet of shopping centers for third parties. And after paying salaries for 560 employees from its Chattanooga headquarters, management seems to have enough dollars remaining to pay an 80-cent dividend, which yields 18.8 percent. CBL “nished 2017 with $4.2 billion in declining debt and $5.7 billion in declining total assets. Im also comfortable recommending Washington Prime Group as a REIT that should be able to rise from the ashes in the coming 18 months. The name sounds like a classy steakhouse in D.C. Washington Prime (WPG$8) is “tting for speculators who chew Juicy Fruit, use Wildroot cream oil and buy Old Spice and Mum deodorant. It came public at $17.50 in February 2015, but its been mostly downhill since, reaching an all-time low price of $5.60 in February of this year. However, its comforting to know that Louis Conforti, WPGs CEO, bought 70,000 shares at $8.50 a share between April and May of 2017 and 28,000 shares at $6.49 in March. WPG owns, develops and manages 122 shopping centers in the U.S., comprising 65 million square feet. WPG also owns various land parcels that can be used for new centers or expansion of existing properties. And after paying salaries of its 710 employees from its Columbus headquarters, management had enough left over to pay a $1 dividend, which yields 16.8 percent. Last year, WPG actually earned 98 cents a share and posted a record amount of funds from operations „ $2.04 a share. Over 91 percent of WPGs 186 million shares are institutionally owned, and wonder of wonders, Standard & Poors has posted a strong buyŽ recommendation on WPG. Total assets exceed debt by $1.7 billion, and the dividend may even be safe. Hold WPG for a couple of years and you may more than double your money. Both of these REITs „ and others that are having tough times „ could be acquired by a competitor. Meanwhile, ask your stockbroker for his REIT recommendations.

Referring to that raid, Trump called it inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyers of“ce (early in the morning) „ almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client.Ž In past comments Trump has also referred to the court-ordered seizure as a break-in,Ž though Cohen has been more sanguine, saying the FBI agents were courteous and respectful. A self-described “xer for Trump for more than a decade, Cohen said last year he would take a bulletŽ for Trump. But he told ABC News in an interview broadcast this month that he now puts family and country “rstŽ and wont let anyone paint him as a villain of this story.Ž On Twitter, he scrubbed mentions and photos of Trump from a pro“le that previously identi“ed him as Personal attorney to President Donald J.

Company President Jim Pattison Jr. said the boat captain had 16 years of experience, and the business monitors weather. Twenty-nine passengers and two crew members were aboard. Fourteen people survived, including two adults who remained hospitalized Saturday. Coleman and her 13-year-old nephew were the only two of the 11 members of her family who boarded the boat to make it out alive. Another survivor was 12-year-old Alicia Dennison, of Illinois, who says her grandmother, 64-year-old Leslie Dennison, saved her from drowning. Alicias father, Todd Dennison, told the Kansas City Star that his daughter recalled feeling her grandmother below her, pushing her upward after the boat capsized. Another young survivor was 14-year-old Loren Smith of Osceola, Arkansas. She suffered a concussion, but her father, 53-year-old retired math teacher Steve Smith, and her 15-yearold brother, Lance, died. Others killed included 65-year-old William Bright and his 63-yearold wife, Janice. The couple had recently celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary and had talked about Branson being one of their last big trips, recalled neighbor Barbara Beck. The couple moved to Higginsville from Kansas City, Missouri, three years earlier to be closer to a daughter and grandchildren and quickly embraced small-town life. William Brights “nal public Facebook posting noted the wedding anniversary and how happy he was with his wife, three kids and 16 grandchildren. Life, he wrote, had been a lot of fun.Ž Another Missouri couple killed in the accident were 69-year-old William Asher and 68-year-old Rosemarie Hamann. The St. Louis-area couple had been celebrating Hammans birthday earlier in the week. In a “nal Facebook photo posted by Hamann, hes sticking his tongue out and shes smiling. I can only imagine what they were going through. They were so in love. Its just heartbreaking,Ž said friend Russ McKay, who said he talked to Hamann the day before the accident. McCay says Hamann told him the couple had just gone on a paddle boat and were planning to go again. He doesnt know why they chose the duck boat instead. Chance also brought the Colemans aboard the doomed vessel. Tia Coleman said her family initially lined up for the wrong tour so they had to switch out their tickets for the 6:30 p.m. ride. She says the crew showed passengers where the life jackets were but said they wouldnt need them. The companys website had been taken down by Saturday, save for a statement that its operations would remain shuttered to support the investigation and allow time for families and the community to grieve. Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board and U.S. Coast Guard were hoping a video recorder recovered from the boat would help provide some explanation on why it sank. NTSB member Earl Weener winds were 2 mph short of hurricane force at the time. While the boats driver on water, 51-year-old Kenneth McKee, survived; its driver on land, 73-year-old Bob Williams, did not. Branson Mayor Karen Best said Williams was a great ambassadorŽ for the city. Williams family in Rhode Island, where hed lived for decades before retiring to Branson, remembered him as a deeply religious man who founded a local church. Pastor Bob was a prince of a man, loving, kind, and generous, whose loss to our family is incalculable,Ž said Williams son-in-law, Bishop Jeffery Williams, who now leads Kings Cathedral in Providence.BOATFROM PAGE 1On Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said China, from a counterintelligence perspective, represents the broadest and most signi“cant threat America faces. He said the FBI has economic espionage investigations in all 50 states that can be traced back to China. The volume of it. The pervasiveness of it. The signi“cance of it is something that I think this country cannot underestimate,Ž Wray said. National Intelligence Director Dan Coats also warned of rising Chinese aggression. In particular, he said, the U.S. must stand strong against Chinas effort to steal business secrets and academic research. Susan Thornton, acting assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Paci“c affairs, said increasing the publics awareness about the activities of the hundreds of thousands of Chinese students or groups at U.S. universities could be one way to help mitigate potential damage. Marcel Lettre, former undersecretary of defense for intelligence, said China has the second-largest defense budget in the world, the largest standing army of ground forces, the third-largest air force and a navy of 300 ships and more than 60 submarines. Lettre said China also is pursuing advances in cyber, arti“cial intelligence, engineering and technology, counter-space, anti-satellite capabilities and hypersonic glide weapons. Army Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told a congressional committee earlier this year that China is developing long-range cruise missiles „ some capable of reaching supersonic speeds. The Pentagon has noted that the Chinese have already pursued a test program that has had 20 times more tests than the U.S. has,Ž Lettre said. Franklin Miller, former senior director for defense policy and arms control at the National Security Council, said Chinas weapons developments are emphasizing the need to have a dialogue with Beijing.CHINAFROM PAGE 1 President Donald Trump has an abysmal attendance record when it comes to intelligence brie“ngs. Over the course of his “rst year-and-a-half in of“ce, Trump has had a habit of skipping daily intelligence brie“ngs, according to his public schedule. The meetings provide presidents with a chance to confer with intelligence of“cials about threats and other international developments. Trump attended the meeting Thursday, for only the second time this month. The presidents aversion to interacting with his intelligence of“cials comes as little surprise, given his public rebuke of the U.S. intelligence community assessment of Russian election meddling and previous reports about his disdain for enduring detailed discussions. A Daily News analysis of Trumps schedule shows that he rarely meets with intelligence of“cials to review their assessments. The president attended 121 such brie“ngs during his “rst 545 days in the White House, putting his attendance rate at only 22 percent. That statistic was reached using the same methodology used by the Government Accountability Institute „ a right-wing group founded by former Trump adviser Stephen Bannon „ to criticize President Barack Obama in a 2013 report. During his “rst 1,225 days in of“ce, Obama attended 536 daily intelligence meetings „ an attendance record of 43.8 percent, according to the group. The group did not respond to requests for comment about whether they would analyze or highlight Trumps attendance record. Trump was one of Obamas biggest critics when it came to intelligence brie“ngs. He said in September 2014 that Obama does not read his intelligence brie“ngsŽ and mocked him as too busy I guess!Ž Trump of“cials defended the presidents responsiveness to intelligence. The president receives daily updates and regular brie“ngs from his national security team,Ž a spokesperson for the National Security Council said. However, Trumps team has been forced to take a unique approach to the tradition, presenting the president with graphs, charts, and maps, and limiting information to bullet points, of“cials said. He likes it orally,Ž Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Thursday during a discussion about Trump at the Aspen Security Forum. He likes examples.

New York Times Sunday Crossword No. 0715 Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1980, when I was formed as a result of a legal settlement, succeeding a subsidiary of Coastal States Gas Corp. I entered the retail gas business after that, and am now the worlds largest independent petroleum refiner and a premier ethanol producer and fuel marketer. Based in San Antonio, I employ about 10,000 people and oversee 15 petroleum refineries with a combined throughput capacity topping 3 million barrels per day, and 11 ethanol plants with a combined production capacity of 1.45 billion gallons per year. My market value was recently $47 billion. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. and losses. It can be tempting to invest on margin, but its risky. If youre paying, say, 8 or 9 percent margin interest, youd better be confident your stocks will appreciate by more than that, and theres never any guarantee of that. (Margin rates these days are roughly in the 5 to 10 percent range, with big borrowers getting the lowest rates.) Indeed, the stock market has averaged annual gains of no more than about 10 percent over many decades. Heres how things can get ugly: When your margined securities fall below a certain level, youll receive a margin callŽ from your broker, requiring an infusion of additional cash. If you cant raise the cash, the brokerage will sell some of your holdings to generate the needed funds. This can sting, sometimes resulting in short-term capital gains taxed at high rates. Margin can reduce your investing flexibility, too. If youve borrowed money to invest in a stock and it falls sharply, you may end up forced to sell when youd rather wait it out. You can do quite well in stocks without using margin, and thats the safest route.The Motley Fool TakeCancer-Fighting ScienceIf you can tolerate risk and volatility and youd like to invest in a biotechnology company, consider cancer drug developer Exelixis (Nasdaq: EXEL). Following a two-year stretch in which Exelixis share price rose roughly nine-fold, shares have recently lost more than a third of their value, presenting an opportunity. Whats going on? Well, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Bristol-Myers Squibbs combination therapy of Opdivo and Yervoy for first-line renal cell carcinoma, which competes with Exelixis lead drug, Cabometyx. In addition, the combination of Roches Tecentriq and Exelixis Cotellic in a phase-3 trial for patients with advanced colorectal cancer failed. While these are disappointing outcomes for Exelixis, theres more to consider. For example, Cabometyx seems on track to possibly be approved to treat hepatocellular carcinoma following a successful phase-3 trial. With strong pricing power, peak sales for Cabometyx may top $1 billion a year by 2021. The company is bolstering its pipeline via licensing and acquisitions, too. According to Wall Streets consensus estimate for 2021, Exelixis is on pace to nearly triple the sales it generated in 2017 „ yet it has recently been trading with a price-toearnings (P/E) ratio only in the 20s. Biotech stocks can be volatile, and they rely on gaining FDA approvals. This one is worth considering. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Exelixis.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentUp in SmokeI bought into a cannabis company based on a friends recommendation. It crashed and burned „ with its share price so low that it was not worth selling. Some years later, I read that the company bought an entire town in California and was going to turn it into a cannabis-friendly hospitality destination.Ž I know that chances of this company ever making money are slim, but I am perennially hopeful. When I spot big opportunities like this, I like to look for support companies to invest in „ such as, in this case, specialists in grow lights, fertilizer, etc. „ Patricia, Scottsdale, Arizona The Fool Responds: Fortunes have been made when investors spot emerging trends and developments and invest in them early, so your instinct was good, as cannabis (marijuana) is being legalized for medical and/or recreational use in more states lately. That said, fortunes can also be lost easily when betting on the wrong horses, and in the early years of any developing industry, it can be very hard or impossible to know which companies will prosper and which will fade away. The fact that this was a penny stock when you bought was an extra big red flag, as penny stocks (ones trading for less than about $5 per share) are notoriously volatile and risky. By the way, the company sold that town a few months ago, unable to pay for its big plans.

Ben & Jerrys was bought by Unilever in 2000 „ and you can invest in Unilever, if youre so inspired. Many companies you know are actually subsidiaries of other companies.

Kellogg owns Kashi, Nike owns Converse and Gap owns Old Navy, Banana Republic and Athleta. Nestle owns Gerber and Purina, and CocaCola owns Honest Tea and Odwalla. TJX owns T.J.

He or she answers to the board of directors, who represent owners and shareholders. The chief operating officer (COO), often the same person as the company president, is responsible for executing the companys strategy. A CEO will typically serve as the companys chief communicator, addressing media, employees, shareholders and customers „ and will aim to meet all those constituents needs. He or she will make top-level decisions, will lead uppermanagement personnel, and will often work to get the public and investors interested in the company and confident about its future. The COO manages day-to-day operations, dealing with customers and employees in sales, marketing, finance and more. The COO and the CEO work with the chief financial officer (CFO) to keep the company financially healthy.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email tos SchoolInvesting With Borrowed DollarsYou may not realize it, but you can invest in stocks not only with your own money, but also with money borrowed from your broker. Thats called investing on margin.Ž When you buy on margin, youre borrowing money from your brokerage at a variable interest rate while using the stocks in your portfolio as collateral. Imagine, for example, that you hold $10,000 of stocks and you borrow another $10,000 to invest in more stock. Youll have $20,000 worth of stock in your portfolio. If it doubles in value to $40,000, youll have made $20,000 (less interest charges) with only a $10,000 initial investment. What if your holdings fall in value by 50 percent, though? Then your $20,000 of holdings will be worth $10,000, and youll still owe $10,000 (plus interest). Your holdings dropped by 50 percent, but margin boosted that to a total, 100 percent, loss.

Competition is usually bad for close relationships, as you want to lift, not outshine, the ones you love. However, sometimes the competition brings out the best in everyone, as is the case today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Boredom is a necessary part of life „ and one that keeps you questing forward to discover new horizons. Its not about whether you can nd something better. Its just that you want to see it all and have all of the experiences. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your discomfort may be telling you to stop an activity, or it may be an essential thing to push through in order for you to grow. So which is it? Youll have to back up and look at the big picture to tell. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It can be fun to hang around people who do the social equivalent of spinning in circles and the emotional equivalent of bumping into things for excitement. Its also tiring, though. Today youll denitely need a break from the drama. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It felt as if you were in a trap, and you wanted desperately to be released from the emotional heaviness of a situation. And now you will be, but not because someone else had the key; you will be freed by your own understanding. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People owe you, its true, but if they cant pay, what does it matter? Even thinking about it is a waste of time. Your best bet is to take the lesson and move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

Its within human nature to care for others while being mindful that someday others will care for you. Its superhuman to care for others out of pure love. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Its scary to go forward blindly, knowing that possibly youll only understand an experience when you look back on it. But if you dont go foolishly forward, there will be nothing to look back on at all. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Envy and peace of mind cannot coexist. There are unfair things afoot that youre having trouble letting go of. Try putting them aside for a while, in the name of peace, and maybe youll forget to pick them back up.

The Sun /Sunday, July 22, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: CharlotteŽ and I have been friends for 16 years, ever since we met in college. She lives several states away, so we see each other only once a year when she and her family come to town for a long weekend. Beyond this annual get-together, we never chat on the phone, and communication is pretty much limited to social media. I have known Charlottes (now) husband for 16 years as well, and never cared for him. When they became engaged, none of our friends thought she would actually marry him. He seems to get worse every time I see him, and it has reached the point that I can barely stand to be in the same room with him. Unfortunately, Charlottes kids take after their dad. They are spoiled, nasty, mean children and a bad inuence on my young son. Charlotte and her family were in town for their annual visit recently. Afterward I told my husband I didnt enjoy it and dread the next one. Charlottes husband has now suggested they tag along on our next family vacation! Abby, it would ruin our trip. I dont want to go on vacation if they come with us. Charlotte is still as sweet and lovely as ever, but I do not want to see her husband or children again. What should I do? „ HANGING ON FOR NOW DEAR HANGING ON: Ignore the suggestionŽ Charlottes husband made. Because the two of you talk so infrequently, the subject may not come up again. A solution to your problem might be as simple as suggesting to Charlotte that the two of you have a girls weekendŽ together rather than a family vacation. Then cross your ngers that shes receptive. DEAR ABBY: Men know that when shaking another mans hand, the grip should be rm. A rm handshake is polite and „ lets be honest „ a point of masculine pride. But when I shake a womans hand, Im never sure what kind of grip to use When Im shaking a womans hand, I use a grip that is less rm than I would use with a man. Is this sexist? Sometimes I worry that even my lighter-than-normal grip is too rm, especially if she is older. On the other hand, Im embarrassed if her grip is rm and mine is not. Sometimes I need to adjust my grip midway through the handshake to match the womans, but then I feel silly doing it. Can you oer any guidance? „ HANDING IT OFF IN TENNESSEE DEAR HANDING: Ill try. The rst thing to remember is that a handshake is not a litmus test for masculinity „ at least not with women. While a limp handshake from either sex is a turno, one that is too strong can be painful „ particularly if the ngers being squeezed happen to have rings on them. It isnt silly to oer a lady a mediumŽ handshake, and adjust the rmness if she has a rm grip. Its sensible, not sexist.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O.

How can I get rid of them without using a commercial product? „ Mary from Connecticut Dear Mary: Heres how to solve this annoying pest problem and to prevent ants from nding your kitchen a tasty place to hang out in the future. Ants are seeking good things to eat, and they love sugary food. Heres one way to get rid of them „ sprinkle 1 part boric acid powder with 20 parts of sugar wherever you see them or along their trails. But dont let pets or small children come into contact with the powder. The easy way to banish ants from countertops is to wipe up the areas with a damp paper towel and put it in a garbage can outside. Then clean the area with hot, soapy water to eliminate the scent trail that the ants follow. Ants wont be attracted to your kitchen if you keep it as clean as possible. Do not leave food out on the counter, and wash kitchen oors to remove crumbs or spills. Follow this motto: No food, no ants! „ Heloise Dear Readers: Most of us have bitten into some kind of food thats really spicy hot on the tongue, such as curry or jalapeo. The inside of your mouth feels like its burning. The logical choice might be to rush for a glass of water, but dont do it because the water will spread the heat. Instead, soothe your mouth with a bite of ice cream, yogurt or a cucumber. Dont have any of these on hand? Then try a piece of chocolate or bread. „ Heloise Dear Readers: We always need more space in our luggage, so it makes sense to pack more eciently. When you put shoes into your bag, place them sole to sole with the heel of one shoe touching the toe of the other. Roll up socks and underwear and pack them in the shoes. Lay clothes at in a plastic dry-cleaning bag, and then roll it up. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I just opened several boxes of books that I had stored in my attic and the books have a musty odor. What can I do to get rid of this? „ Suzanne from Pennsylvania Dear Suzanne: If the books were in the attic for a long time, a musty smell is likely to occur. But you can restore your books with a bit of time and eort. To remove this smell, air out the books by fanning the pages with your ngers. Do this several times. Then take them outside and let them sit in the sun for a while. However, dont put old or rare books in the sun. If they still have an odor, sprinkle baking soda over the pages and let it remain on them for several days. Then carefully brush it o the pages. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Microber cloths have become indispensable cleaning tools in our homes. When you buy a new package of them, take out several and put them under the front seat of your car. They will come in handy to wipe up a spill and to get rid of dirt and grit from the dashboard, steering wheel and any other surfaces that may need a fast dusting. This will be particularly helpful when you are on a vacation trip with the family. „ HeloiseWomans husband and children wear out welcome in annual visitDear Abby Hints from Heloise


Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 BUENOS AIRES, Argentina „ U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Saturday that Donald Trump was not trying to put pressure on the Federal Reserve when he criticized its decision to raise interest rates. Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a Group of 20 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mnuchin said he cant comment on why the U.S. president made the comments but he doesnt think they were a mistake. Mnuchin said hes talked to Trump and his intention is not to in any way put pressure on the Fed,Ž referring to the U.S. central bank. On Friday morning, Trump for a second day criticized the Federal Reserve, breaking with a long-standing tradition at the White House of avoiding any in”uence, real or perceived, on the independence of the U.S. central bank. In a tweet, he said: China, the European Union and others have been manipulating their currencies and interest rates lower, while the U.S. is raising rates while the dollars gets stronger and stronger with each passing day „ taking away our big competitive edge.Ž Trump added, referring to the Feds rate increases: The United States should not be penalized because we are doing so well. Ž Last month, the Fed raised its benchmark rate for a second time this year and projected two more increases in 2018. Its rate hikes are meant to prevent the economy from overheating and igniting high in”ation. But rate increases also make borrowing costlier for households and companies and can weaken the pace of growth. Trumps tweet on Friday followed more extensive criticism he made of the Feds rate hikes in an interview with CNBC in which he said, I dont like all of this work that were putting into the economy and then I see rates going up.ŽTreasury Secretary: Trump not threatening Feds independenceBy VICTOR CAIVANOASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) „ President Donald Trumps choice for the Supreme Court has given members of Congress a pile of material to help them start judging the judge. Judge Brett Kavanaugh responded to a Senate Judiciary Committee questionnaire that probes his career as an attorney and jurist, his service in the executive branch, education, society memberships and more. Running 110 pages, plus appendices, his response released Saturday is an opening look at a long paper trail that lawmakers will consider as they decide whether to con“rm him. The high court appointment could shift the court rightward for years to come. A longtime “gure in the Washington establishment, Kavanaugh acknowledged in the questionnaire that he had joined clubs that he said once had discriminatory membership policies. Years before I became a member of the Congressional Country Club and the Chevy Chase Club, it is my understanding that those clubs, like most similar clubs around the country, may have excluded members on discriminatory bases that should not have been acceptable to people then and would not be acceptable now,Ž he wrote. Asked to list the 10 most signi“cant cases for which he sat as a judge, he cited nine in which the position expressed in my opinion (either for the court or in a separate writing) was later adopted by the Supreme Court.Ž The 10th regarded a man “red by mortgage giant Fannie Mae after he “led a discrimination complaint that alleged a company executive had created a hostile work environment by calling the worker the n-word.Ž Kavanaugh said he included it because of what it says about antidiscrimination law and American history.ŽHigh court nominee gets started answering questions MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) „ Businesses and volunteers are pitching in to provide more than cleanup in the wake of the destructive tornadoes that swept through three cities in central Iowa earlier this week. A meatpacking plant provided hot meals to those in need Saturday in Marshalltown, a city of 27,000 people that was hardest hit, the TimesRepublican reported. The Animal Rescue League joined with local emergency management of“cials and a veterinary clinic to care for animals hurt or displaced. The tornado that hit the city was among a ”urry of unexpected twisters on Thursday that injured at least 17 people and ”attened buildings in Marshalltown, Pella and Bondurant. Residents and weather forecasters were surprised by the storms, which left gaping holes in the sides of factories and homes. Vehicles were buried under topped buildings. Among the buildings hit in Mashalltown was the citys historic, 132-year-old courthouse. The Marshalltown Historical Society said Saturday that despite the exterior damage, there was miraculously little damage to our collection.Ž The organization will temporarily move its headquarters to a nearby location. The JBS pork processing plant in Marshalltown also suffered extensive damage. Trailers and railcars were ”ipped and a static freezer that held 24 million pounds of pork was heavily damaged. We will probably lose all of this product,Ž general manager Todd Carl said, but added that he expects production to resume next week. Alliant Energy said it hopes to have power in Marshalltown fully restored by mid-week. About 4,000 customers remained without power midday Saturday.Volunteers provide food, care in wake of Iowa tornadoes AP PHOTOU.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin speaks in Argentina, Saturday.LOS ANGELES (AP) „ A man who in a standoff with police inside a Los Angeles supermarket is suspected of shooting his grandmother and girlfriend earlier Saturday and led police on a pursuit „ at times shooting at of“cers „ before he crashed outside the busy supermarket and ran inside, of“cials said. Police and rescue personnel swarmed the Trader Joes Saturday afternoon and at least one person was injured but expected to survive. Police said it wasnt clear whether there were any employees or others still inside the store. Investigators believe the suspect, whose name hasnt been released, had shot his grandmother and girlfriend around 1:30 p.m. in Los Angeles and then ”ed, said Of“cer Mike Lopez, a Los Angeles police spokesman. Of“cers spotted the suspects car and tried to pull him over, but the man refused to stop and led of“cers on a pursuit. The suspect eventually crashed his car outside of the Trader Joes supermarket and then ran into the store. An Associated Press employee who lives in the area reported seeing a car crashed into a utility pole outside the store. The woman who was injured was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Never in the mix at the Masters, gone by the weekend at the U.S. Open, the 14-time major champion surged into contention Saturday with a 66, his lowest round on weekend at a major in eight years. He didnt have the best score. He was four shots behind. But hes Tiger Woods, and it felt like that again to thousands of fans who crammed along the fairways and beind the greens as Woods ran off three straight birdies around the turn and then two-putted for birdie on the par-5 14th to work his way into a tie for the lead, even if that lasted for only 20 minutes. Ive shown that Ive been there close enough with a chance to win this year,Ž Woods said. Given what happened GOLF: British OpenSpieth part of 3-way tie for leadAP PHOTOJordan Spieth (left) and Kevin Chappell finish the third round of the British Open Golf Championship, Saturday in Carnoustie, Scotland.

The Bucs receiver fired back at the president after a tweet suggesting that NFL players who protest during the national anthem should be suspended.

A jury ruled in favor of the police, but awarded the family $4. Is there a GoFundMe or a donation page for the family?Ž Evans asked on Twitter. When multiple fans reached out with a link to the fundraising effort for family of Gregory Hill, Evans stepped up and made a donation of $11,000, pushing the overall online donations to the family to close to $100,000.

And in a Norwegian record, too. Warholm was runner-up to Samba in the previous Diamond League meetings in Rome, Oslo, Stockholm, Paris, and Lausanne. But Samba preferred to try the 400 without hurdles at London Stadium, and registered a personal-best in coming fifth. Warholm won the hurdles comfortably in 47.65, more than half a second off Sambas best this year. Meanwhile, Abdallelah Haroun won the 400 in a Qatar-record 44.07. In the womens 100meter final, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won in 10.98 seconds, her season best. The Jamaican, a twotime Olympic champion, had a baby boy last August. I havent raced for ages and Im happy that the run today was under 11 seconds,Ž Fraser-Pryce said. Being a mother is my first priority and to come back and be flexible with my training is wonderful, and Im so excited about next year now.Ž Dezerea Bryant of the United States was second in 11.04. Ronnie Baker of the U.S. won the mens 100 in 9.90 for his fourth win of this Diamond League. Zharnel Hughes was second in 9.93, and Commonwealth champion Akani Simbine of South Africa was third. Jamaicas Yohan Blake was fourth. Christian Coleman, who won silver at the worlds last year, pulled out with a hamstring injury. Olympic silver and world bronze medallist Paul Chelimo of the U.S. edged the 5,000 from Ethiopian duo Edris Muktar and Yomif Kejelcha.TRACK & FIELD: Hurdles W arholm exploits Samba absence to win London 400 hurdlesBy KEN POWTAKAssociated PressNEWPORT, R.I. „ When Michael Stich was a teenager, he had to choose a sport „ soccer or tennis. It seems he made right choice now that he has a home in the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The 49-year-old German and Helena Sukova were inducted on Saturday during a ceremony on Newports grass court, the only members of the class of 2018. I played till I was 18,Ž Stich said during a news conference. There was a little bit of a decision between soccer and tennis, but I preferred tennis because I didnt have to deal with 10 other guys messing up on the pitch. It was only up to me to mess up.Ž Stich captured his only Grand Slam singles title in 1991, beating countryman Boris Becker, also a Hall of Famer, at Wimbledon. He was a U.S. Open finalist in 1994 and runner-up at the 1996 French O p en. He joined Becker to win gold in doubles at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. It was always said that we didnt get along,Ž Stich said. Obviously, as we were rivals, we could get along. I think we benefited a lot from each other because we always wanted to be better than the other player,Ž he said. We proved it to ourselves and to everyone else that it was possible to follow our goal.Ž Sukova captured a combined 14 Slam doubles titles „ nine in womens and five in mixed. She was runner-up in singles at four majors „ twice each at the Australian and U.S. opens. For me, the most important (thing) was playing the singles,Ž she said. I didnt really like to practice, so doubles was perfect.Ž The 53-year-old Czech reflected on her biggest singles win, beating Martina Navratilova at the 1984 Australian Open to end her string of 74 consecutive match victories, including six straight Slam titles. I had like three press conferences every day after that,Ž she said. Before that, I barely had one.Ž Hall of Famer Jim Courier jokingly told the crowd that he checked his record against Stich before heading from his New York City home. I almost turned around when I saw I only won five of 12 matches against him,Ž he said. Stich said that when he was 6 years old his family took him to the tennis club. They couldnt leave me at home,Ž he said. They had to take me.Ž And thats how his love of the game began. I had a tennis wall to play against,Ž he said. I got a racket and ball and they said: Spend two hours here and well pick you up later.Ž It was time well spent. The beauty of his game,Ž Courier said, is what really sticks with me.ŽTENNIS: Hall of FameMichael Stich, Helena Sukova inducted into tennis hallAP PHOTOTennis Hall of Fame inductee Helena Sukova, left, of Czech Republic, sits with Hall of Famers Jan Kodes, of Czech Republic, and Kim Clijsters, right, of Belgium, during ceremonies at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Saturday in Newport, R.I. By Greg AumanTampa Bay TimesRays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier left Fridays game in the fifth inning when an injury to his right foot that has bothered him since April flared up with the worst pain hes encountered this season. Kiermaier called the injury a severe bone bruiseŽ and said hell have it evaluated Saturday, hopeful that hell only be sidelined a couple of days.Ž You would think me being on the 60-day DL (with thumb injury), it would go away,Ž Kiermaier said. Its crazy that its still a thing, but Ive been feeling it ƒ Its frustrating because I havent been able to get rid of this. Ive had good days and bad days, but today was the worst day Ive had.Ž Kiermaier said he had hoped the All-Star break would help the injury, given four days to get off his feet and have extended rest for his foot. But it gave him trouble before batting practice, and he said he left the game fearing he wouldnt be able to make a play because of his limitations. 2018 has been a frustrating year for me,Ž he said. Ill be just fine. This is one thing that just comes and goes. I should be good to go and well see what the doctors have to say tomorrow. Its no joke. I was in a lot of pain today.ŽMLB: RaysKiermaier has severe bone bruise in foot, dates back to April injuryTAMPA BAY TIMESKevin Kiermaier was able to get a double in the first inning and score, but left in the fifth inning due to a painful foot injury that has bothered him since April. MLB: RaysBy MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesST. PETERSBURG … To get a sense of how shorthanded the Rays were by the final innings of Saturday night's game, all you had to do was look at the field and see Carlos Gomez playing second base. It was that kind of night for the Rays, who lost another game, 3-2 to the Marlins, and apparently another player to injury, as shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria left in the seventh inning with left oblique soreness. Hechavarria's injury forced Rays prospect Justin Williams, just called up from TripleA Durham, to make a challenging debut, pinchhitting against Marlins lefty Adam Conley, and in a key situation, two on and one out. Williams, 22, who made it to the Trop and into the dugout around the third inning, didn't deliver a moment to remember, grounding into a double play. With CF Kevin Kiermaier (foot) and 3B Matt Duffy (back) sidelined, and only backup Adam Moore on the bench, the Rays put Williams in rightfield and moved Gomez to second. It wasn't totally wacky, as he played there once in 2015, an inning for the Brewers, and does take ground balls often. The Marlins grabbed the lead in the fourth with a quick start against Ryan Yarbrough. Justin Bour drew a leadoff walk, Starlin Castro singled and Martin Prado doubled for one run. A one-out grounder by Miguel Rojas scored the other. The Rays halved the lead when Joey Wendle opened the home fourth with a homer to center, which was the Rays first hit off Miami starter Pablo Lopez. The Marlins extended the lead to 3-1 in the seventh when Cameron Maybin homered off Hunter Wood, the third of five Rays pitchers in a game started by opener Ryne Stanek. The Rays cut it back to 3-2 on a ninth-inning homer by Ji-Man Choi that struck high off the batter's eye in centerfield.Hey kidWilliams, 22, is probably the Rays most advanced outfield prospect, but wasn't necessarily ready for a callup from Triple-A Durham, having hit .267 with eight homers, 45 RBIs and a .715 OPS. But with Kiermaier sidelined for a couple days (but not on the DL), and with neither INF Willy Adames nor Christian Arroyo eligible to be called up by not having at Triple-A Durham 10 days, Williams was the choice since he was already on the 40-man roster. Just getting him to the Trop was challenging enough since Durham was playing in Buffalo. "He's an exciting young player,'' Cash said. ƒ LHP Hoby Milner was optioned to Durham to make room for Williams.

The Sun / Sunday, July 22, 2018 SP Page 3By GARY B. GRAVESAssociated PressNICHOLASVILLE, Ky. „ Brittany Lincicome walked off the 18th green after her first PGA Tour event to applause before stopping on the way to the clubhouse to sign autographs and acknowledge spectators warm wishes. The LPGA Tour player made sure to savor every moment of a historic weekend she wished could have lasted longer. I wouldve liked to have shot better (Thursday),Ž said Lincicome, who missed the cut at the Barbasol Championship after shooting a 1-under 71. She failed in her bid to become the first female player since 1945 to make the cut in a PGA Tour event. Obviously, today was a pretty nice day, so I guess ending with todays round is a good way to leave.Ž Troy Merritt, at 15 under, entered the third round leading Billy Horschel and Cameron Percy by two strokes. Richy Werenski and Andres Romero were tied for fourth at three shots back. Lincicome, the eighttime LPGA Tour winner with two major titles, was the first woman since Michelle Wie in 2008 to play in a PGA Tour event. Lincicome had sought to join Babe Zaharias (1945) as the only women to make the cut. Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam and Suzy Whaley have also played in PGA Tour events. Lincicome faced a huge hurdle after an opening 78 left her near the bottom of the field. She had six birdies in Saturdays rain-delayed second round at Champions Trace at Keene Trace Golf Club, highlighted by an eagle-3 at 17. I thought I hit it a little short,Ž Lincicome added. I thought it was going to spin back a little bit on me. Then when it landed I was like, OK, its on top and then it rolled back and I was like, Oh, my gosh. The highlight of my week.Ž Lincicome also had consecutive birdies on the sixth, seventh and eighth holes before another on No. 10. But her round included six bogeys, including three on the final four holes, and she finished at 5 over 149. Playing partner Conrad Shindler, who made the cut along with Sam Ryder, described playing with Lincicome as a pleasure, a treat.Ž Despite her roller-coaster performance, he felt her approach was consistent. She does the same thing every shot,Ž he said. She just knows where its going to go. Each day, she gained confidence.Ž Her goal now is applying lessons learned from playing with the men back to the LPGA Tour. Lincicome couldnt immediately say whether she would return to play this event, but seemed eager for LPGA Tour and PGA Tour players to be on the same course in some form. That remains to be seen, but Lincicome definitely appreciated this opportunity with her PGA Tour counterparts. Even without the history. Just being inside the ropes with the guys, hitting on the range, on the putting green, its just a cool feeling,Ž she said. I feel like Im at home here. The guys just made me feel so comfortable.ŽGOLF: Barbasol ChampionshipLincicome shoots 71 but misses cut at Barbasol ChampionshipBy ANDREW DAMPFThe Associated PressMENDE, France „ With Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome sitting 1-2 in the overall standings, Team Sky has complete control over the Tour de France. The two British riders took advantage of their powers in the hilly 14th stage in the Massif Central, allowing a large group of breakaway riders to build a lead of nearly 20 minutes then fending off the few attacks thrown their way on the short but steep finishing climb. We can really just ride off each other,Ž Froome said. I imagine for our rivals its making their lives quite difficult, having two guys to watch like that.Ž While the Welshman Thomas is attempting to win the Tour for the first time, the Kenyan-born Froome is aiming for a record-tying fifth victory in cyclings biggest race. Fourth-placed Primoz Roglic was the only overall contender to gain time, finishing eight seconds ahead of Thomas, Froome, and thirdplaced Tom Dumoulin „ with all four riders finishing more than 18 minutes behind stage winner Omar Fraile, who remained far back in the standings. Thomas leads Froome by 1 minute, 39 seconds. Dumoulin, the time trial world champion and last years Giro dItalia winner, is third, 1:50 behind, and Roglic is fourth, 2:38 back. When Dumoulin attacked with two kilometers remaining, Thomas chased him down with Froome towing along. (Dumoulin) can really pace himself,Ž Thomas said. You dont know if he is really suffering or just pacing himself. Hats off to him. It takes (courage) to do that with no teammate around.Ž Fraile escaped from a large group of breakaway riders on the finishing climb, a short but steep three-kilometer ascent that was followed by a quick descent and flat finish on an air strip. When I saw that the breakaway was so big, I knew it was going to be a tough stage, but I picked my moment well and pulled it off,Ž Fraile said. I knew that I still had another gear. ... I have raced here before and I knew the course to perfection.Ž Fraile had time to celebrate before crossing the line, finishing six seconds ahead of Julian Alaphilippe, the Frenchman wearing the polka-dot jersey awarded to the Tours best climber. Jasper Stuyven of Belgium finished third, also six seconds back, and three-time world champion Peter Sagan came fourth. It was the first career victory at the Tour for Fraile, who rides for the Astana team. His only other victory at a Grand Tour came with a stage win in last years Giro dItalia. The Basque rider also won the mountains classification in the Spanish Vuelta in 2015 and 2016. Fraile became the third Spanish winner of a Tour stage in Mende after Marcos Serrano in 2005 and Joaquim PuritoŽ Rodriguez in 2010.

[PETER DEJONG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] basic question: how does coach Dirk Koetter decide how to prepare both Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick to play? How do they split the reps in training camp and the preseason games? Fitzpatrick is likely to start the first three games of the season. At 35, he has a lot of experience and a year under his belt in Koetters offense. But Fitzpatrick will need as much work with the No. 1 offense as possible to be prepared to start Sept. 9 at New Orleans. Winston will miss nearly four weeks of practice by the time he returns from the regular season suspension. At 24, hes a relatively young quarterback, and sitting him out „ with a bigger break looming „ wont help his development. The only recent template for this is what the New England Patriots did in 2016 when Tom Brady knew he was suspended for the first four games. Patriots coach Bill Belichick is a big believer that Brady could get great work in joint practices, so Brady was a little less of a presence in the games,Ž according tos Mike Reiss. (The Bucs have two joint practices at Tennessee). Also, Brady sliced his finger on a pair off cutters that season, so they held him out of the first preseason game. Heres how the breakdown went: Preseason Game 1: Backup Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first half with the No. 1 offense. Jacoby Brissett, the No. 3 quarterback, started the third quarter and finished the game. Preseason Game 2: Brady sat out the entire game again with the finger injury as Garoppolo started and played the first half and one series into the third quarter. Preseason Game 3: Normally, the starting quarterback begins the game and plays into the third quarter. But Garoppolo was done after two series and Brady played most of the first half. Garoppolo finished the first half with a twominute drive and returned for two series in the third quarter. Preseason Game 4: At this point in the preseason, you protect the starting quarterback from possible injury by not playing him. Garropolo sat out of the game while Brady played the entire first half. The preseason game breakdown for snaps played went like this: Brady 0-0-16-39 = 55; Garoppolo 39-45-29-0 = 113; Brissett 28-26-23-38 = 115. Clearly, Brady has vastly more experience than Winston while Garappolo had not started a regular season game prior to 16. Its hard to prepare one quarterback for the season, much less two. And somewhere Ryan Griffin has to fit in there as the No. 3. But thats not the only storyline heading into training camp. Who will emerge as the starting running back? The Bucs have big plans for Ronald Jones, the second-round pick from Southern Cal. His explosiveness could transform the rushing attack. But Jones is a rookie and has much to learn before he can be trusted in pass protection on third down. Peyton Barber is a competent inside rusher. The third-down job may be between Charles Sims, Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Shaun Wilson. Will Chris Godwin unseat DeSean Jackson as the No. 2 receiver? Jackson had only 50 catches last season, but his chemistry with Winston and Fitzpatrick should be better in the second year. Godwin looked and played like a starting NFL receiver this offseason and is another big body target for Winston. Jackson will get the first bite of the apple, but hes also been working in the slot in three-receiver packages.What is the defensive line rotation?Obviously, Gerald McCoy and Jason Pierre-Paul are locks. But will the Bucs go with free agent Beau Allen or first-round pick Vita Vea at defensive tackle? Does Vinny Curry hang onto the other defensive end job over William Gholston? Its a good problem to have, but there are starting jobs on the line. How quickly they identify roles and jell as a unit could go a long way to overcoming Winstons absence.Which rookie will emerge as the third cornerback?Lets assume that Vernon Hargreaves hangs onto his starting right cornerback spot. When he moves inside to the slot in the sub package when teams go to three receivers, who takes Hargreaves spot? Auburn rookie Carlton Davis made a splashy debut in minicamp. At 6-1, he gives the Bucs length and man coverage ability. But M.J. Stewart came on late and will make a challenge. the last few years, I didnt know if that would ever happen again. But here I am with a chance coming Sunday in a major championship. Its going to be fun.Ž It was every bit of that on Saturday, a rare day when Carnoustie had little defense. Justin Rose, who made the cut on the number with a birdie on his final hole, matched the Carnoustie record for the Open with a 64. Spieth set the tone in the afternoon when he decided on the way to the first tee to hit driver on the 396-yard hole. He sent it bouncing and rolling along the firm turf, down a hill and onto the green to about 10 feet away for an eagle. Moments later, Woods began his charge to get into contention at a major for the first time in five years. It never stopped. Seven players had a share of the lead at one point. Kisner, who started the third round tied for the lead, was never far away but had to work hard to stay there. He made a tough par save on the 17th, and then got up-and-down from behind the 18th green for a 68. Schauffele, the PGA Tour rookie of the year last season, holed a 30-foot putt from behind the 18th green for a 67. They were at 9-under 204. Weve got pretty much a new tournament tomorrow,Ž Spieth said. A dozen players were separated by four shots, which is nothing considering that the last two British Open champions at Carnoustie rallied from 10 shots (Paul Lawrie) and six shots (Padraig Ha rrington) on the final day. The wind is expected to be the strongest it has been all week. And then theres the presence of Woods, playing in the third-to-last group. Woods started quietly enough with a few birdies through eight holes. He started his move with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, followed with short birdie putts on the next two holes and with a twoputt birdie on the par-5 14th, he put his name atop the leaderboard. It was there for only 20 minutes. But it was there. A bogey on the 16th and a par save from short of the Barry Burn on the 18th gave him a 66. He figured it would at least keep him in range. He wound up as close to the lead as he has been in a major since he was two behind at Muirfield in the 2013 British Open. Im right there,Ž he said. Ive got a chance at this, which is great.Ž And he has company. Kevin Chappell, who spent most of his round watching Spieth put on a show, birdied the 18th for a 67 and was two shots behind. Francesco Molinari had a 66 and will play in the third-to-last group with Woods. They were last together three weeks ago when Woods presented him the trophy at the Quicken Loans National after Molinari shot 62 for an eight-shot victory. Twelve players were separated by four shots, a group that includes Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Zach Johnson. They all dropped shots on a day when there was no time to be going backward. McIlroy was within two shots of the lead until bogeys on two of his last three holes for a 70 left him four behind. Johnson, staying in the same house as Kisner, Spieth and four other Americans, hooked his approach on No. 12 and three-putted for a double bogey. He shot 72 and was in the group four behind. Joining them was Tommy Fleetwood, who droppe d three shots in two holes on the back nine on his way to a 71. Of the five players separated by three shots, only Spieth has experience winning a major. He will try to become the first player since Padraig Harrington in 2008 to win golfs oldest championship in consecutive years. His move started with a sudden decision. The opening hole is 396 yards on the card, with the fairway getting narrow between two bunkers. Spieth, who spent Saturday morning watching the Open on television, asked caddie Michael Greller on the practice range, Do we like driver?Ž Greller told him no. Play short and its a wedge to a front pin, easy birdie chance. Spieth walked to the tee with coach Cameron McCormick and asked him, How about I just send it on No. 1?Ž I felt good about the range session. And hes like, I put my chips behind anything you decide, always. And that kind of gave me that little extra boost,Ž Spieth said. on Saturday morning: You that mad the USFL didnt work out?Ž The tweet had more than 1,000 retweets and nearly 5,000 likes in the first six hours, the most vocal response of any Bucs player to the presidents tweet. Evans first national anthem protest in November 2016 was an expression of his disappointment that Trump was elected president. Im not going to stand for something I dont believe in,Ž Evans said after that protest. Im not big on politics. I told myself, If this happens, then Americas not right, right now. I said this a long time ago. When (Trump) ran, I thought it was a joke. And the joke continues. Im not a political person that much, but Ive got common sense. I know when somethings not right.Ž Evans also protested with teammate DeSean Jackson during the Bucs Week 3 game at Minnesota last season, in the first game after Trump called NFL players who protested sons of b„….Ž That was the teams only protest during a national anthem last season.LEADFrom Page 1BUCSFrom Page 1EVANSFrom Page 1

The All-Star captain had 15 of her 30 points in the opening period to help Washington beat the New York Liberty 95-78 on Saturday. It definitely helps the spread the floor better when Im hitting shots,Ž said Delle Donne, who also had 10 rebounds. She hit all six of her shots in the opening period, including three 3-pointers „ most of them just swishing through the net. The Mystics won for only the second time in their past six games and sit in a three-way tie for fourth in the league. Every game matter so much,Ž Delle Donne said. Its going to be a sprint to the finish.Ž Washington (14-10) led by eight at the half, and Delle Donne and Kristi Toliver combined for 20 points of the teams 32 points in the third quarter to extend the advantage to 75-53. Toliver finished with 19 points and eight assists. New York (7-17) tried to get back in the game behind rookie Kia Nurse, who had eight straight points during one stretch to get the Liberty within 11. But thats as close as they could come. Excellent effort in the fourth quarter by all who came in,Ž Liberty coach Katie Smith said. . Maybe we can bottle that up and get four quarters of that.Ž New York is all but assured of missing the playoffs this season after making the postseason the past three years. Its going to be rough to try to get in,Ž Smith said. But I think for us, its going out every night and being proud of what we did that night and proud of how we played, proud of our effort. Its tough to win in this league anyways.Ž Tina Charles scored 22 points, including her 3,000th in New York. Sugar Rodgers added 16 for the Liberty.Swatting away the record bookKiah Stokes tied the franchise record for career blocks, equaling the mark of 155 set by Sue Wicks of 155.Training roomMystics: Natasha Cloud is still out with a concussion.

She couldnt have liked what she saw. While her teammates placed their hands on their heads in disbelief, France was celebrating on the field after stunning Australia 19-12 to reach its first Rugby World Cup Sevens final. Green, an Olympic champion, scored Australias second try but then received a hard tackle and was escorted off for a head injury assessment. Australia led 12-0 at the time. Congratulations to the French team,Ž Australia coach John Manenti said. They had to fight back from a halftime deficit. To bring (Green) off, shes an impact player. She plays another minute or two, scores a try, or chases someone down, things are different.Ž France replacement Anne Cecile Ciofani found some breathing room on the left side and scampered in with the match-winning try on the final play to complete the comeback. Theres too much emotion I can tell you,Ž Ciofani said. Its so wonderful. Its just magic. We won against a great team. I cant explain it. Too amazing.Ž France will face defending champion and heavy favorite New Zealand in the final later Saturday. The Black Ferns repelled a stiff semifinals test from the host Americans in a 26-21 victory. They didnt make it safe until Sarah Goss set up Portia Woodman for their fourth try and 26-14 with a minute to go. New Zealand won all four meetings with France this season on the world series. But Woodman said: Theyre going to be unpredictable.ŽRUGBYFrance upset Australia to face New Zealand in RWC 7s womens “ nal Associated PressGSTAAD, Switzerland „ Mandy Minella has a chance at becoming the third mother to win a WTA singles title in the last 12 months after reaching the Ladies Championships Gstaad final on Saturday. Minella, of Luxembourg, overcame 19-year-old Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 to reach her first career final at 32. She will meet topseeded Alize Cornet of France, who beat Eugenie Bouchard 7-6 (5), 1-0 when the Canadian retired with a right thigh injury in their semifinal. I was congratulating her after each of her matches,Ž Cornet said of Minella. Being a mom, its not easy its such a comeback.Ž Minella gave birth to a daughter in October. The other mothers to win in the past year were Kateryna Bondarenko in Tashkent last year, and Tatjana Maria at Mallorca last month. Cornet will be going for her sixth WTA singles title, but first in more than two years. She was broken by Bouchard early but broke straight back. Cornet saved four set points in the seventh game, and Bouchard saved three in the 10th. Cornet prevailed in a tight tiebreaker by being the first to win two points in a row. Bouchard then couldnt play on in her first semifinal in 18 months. If she had won the first set, maybe she would have kept going. She was playing amazing,Ž Cornet said. Im glad to be in the final ... and I hope I can get to the trophy.ŽTENNIS: WTAMinella reaches “ rst WTA “ nal 9 months after babyBy JEROME PUGMIREAssociated PressHOCKENHEIM, Germany „ Sebastian Vettel secured pole position for the German Grand Prix while Lewis Hamiltons hopes took another blow on Saturday. Already trailing Vettel by eight points in the title race, Hamilton starts Sundays race from 14th place after a hydraulic failure. A huge roar went up from German fans at the Hockenheimring as their local favorite „ Vettel grew up near the track „ moved to the top of the leaderboard with seconds left in qualifying. Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas had only just beaten Vettels leading time when Vettel produced a stunning lap to move back in front by about 0.2 seconds. To do it here, just minutes from where I was born and grew up, it means a lot,Ž Vettel said. Im confident for tomorrow.Ž Vettel has won the German GP only once „ five years ago when it was held at the Nuerburgring „ but never at Hockeneim. His 55th career pole position felt even sweeter. Todays one of my best. I have a mixed relationship with this track. For some reason it has never come together,Ž Vettel said. The car was really a pleasure to drive. Some days you can feel you have something in your hands. Thats the feeling I had.Ž Ferraris good day was completed with Kimi Raikkonen third fastest, ahead of Red Bulls Max Verstappen. Earlier, German fans cheered for a different reason when Hamiltons Mercedes suddenly stalled on track in the first part of qualifying, known as Q1. It happened shortly after Hamilton slid off the track, went through some rough grass, and jumped a kerb „ momentarily airborne „ before coming back onto the track. It was the hydraulics ... the power steering failed,Ž Hamilton said. I was carrying a lot of speed and I couldnt really slow down.Ž The British driver desperately tried to push his car back to the pits so he could continue qualifying, but even with the help of track officials he realized it was a futile effort. Moments later, Hamilton was slumped over his car, head down for several moments. It was a shame to see him go out, and I mean it,Ž said Vettel, who is aiming for his fifth win this season and 52nd overall. Hamilton is one win away from matching F1 great Michael Schumachers record of four German GP wins, but he will need an exceptional drive „ and probably a little good fortune „ to achieve that. After a huge downpour drenched the track for final practice earlier Saturday, led by Monaco driver Charles Leclerc, the Hockenheimring dried out somewhat by the time qualifying started. After veering off track, a worried Hamilton complained over his team radio that his gears would not change. Within moments, fans had the rare sight of a four-time F1 champion „ who has just signed a whopping new two-year contract „ pushing his own car. After giving up, Hamilton ripped his driving gloves off in frustration as he walked away. He jumped onto the back of a scooter, taking him to the paddock area. With cameras fixed firmly on him, Hamilton walked slowly before standing completely still for several seconds, his helmet still on, seemingly unable to comprehend his misfortune. It is the latest reliability issue to blight the oncedominant Mercedes team after Hamilton and Bottas were forced to retire from the Austrian GP three weeks ago. There have also been communication errors and strategy mistakes. Hamilton faces another slog through the field after being bumped off the track by Raikkonen early in the British GP two weeks ago. In that race, he clawed back from last to finish second. Although Hamilton is way down, he still needs to watch his back on Sunday. Daniel Ricciardo, who has won two races, starts from last place because of an engine penalty. He incurred it because Red Bull made changes to the hybrid system, the energy store and the electronics unit for a combined total of 20 grid positions. Drivers can use two of each specific engine part during the season before penalties, but this is the third time he is using each individual element. Hamilton and Ricciardo carving through the midfield, possibly dueling with each other, promises to be an exciting spectacle.AUTO RACING: F1Vettel takes pole for German GP; Hamilton down in 14th AP PHOTOFerrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany, center, celebrates after setting a pole position with second placed Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas of Finland, left, and third placed Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen of Finland during the qualifying session at the Hockenheimring racetrack in Hockenheim, Germany, Saturday. By DAN GELSTONAssociated PressLOUDON, N.H. „ Christopher Bell has cracked the Cup supremacy in Xfinity. The 23-year-old Bell held off hard-charging 2012 Cup champion Brad Keselowski over the final 18 laps at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to win his second straight Xfinity Series race. Bell pulled off the towering achievement of winning two straight Xfinity races against former champs from NASCARs top-tier series who moonlight on Saturdays. Bell topped 2015 Cup champion Kyle Busch to win last weeks race at Kentucky Speedway and he followed up Saturday in the No. 20 Toyota by keeping Keselowski at bay down the stretch for his third win this season. You hope to race those guys at one point, so Im thankful that I get the opportunity here in the Xfinity Series to race with them and proud that Im able to compete with them, let alone beat them,Ž Bell said. Keselowski had won the pole Saturday but was dropped to the rear of the field because he was late to the mandatory drivers meeting. It proved to be nothing more than a mild inconvenience for Keselowski in the No. 22 Ford. He stormed past the second-tier regulars and had his fourth straight Xfinity win in sight. Bell, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing, had the fresh tires that Keselowski needed and that was enough to ring in a victory lane celebration. Bell gave his checkered flag to a young fan in the stands. I hope it means a lot more to that kid than it is to me,Ž he said. You know, we get trophies, we get all sorts of trophies, so hopefully it means a lot to that kid.Ž JGR fields cars for Busch and Bell, one reason its continued to have success in Xfinity. Theyve won before me, theyre going to win after me,Ž Bell said. Its my job to make sure they win with me.Ž Ryan Preece, John Hunter Nemechek and Matt Tift completed the top five to complete a solid showing for the Xfinity regulars. You see all this crap going around the Internet that Cup guys shouldnt be allowed in Xfinity,Ž Bell said. Why?Ž Because Xfinity is supposed to be the series where the stars of NASCARs future are discovered. Instead, they spent this season looking up at Cup regulars Busch, Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Austin Dillon as race winners. But Bell said he wanted them in Xfinity so he could race against the best drivers in NASCAR.AUTO RACING: NASCARBell tops New Hampshire “ eldAP PHOTOChristopher Bell celebrates his win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series auto race Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.
