Its a mandate many districts are struggling to meet, “ nancially and logistically. In the “ rst comprehensive statewide examination of the program, an Associated Press survey of Floridas 67 county school districts found all campuses are covered including Charlotte and Sarasota as they continue to reopen this week, but many districts are having dif“ culty funding the program and “ nding enough applicants. About a third are supplementing of“ cers with armed civilian security guards, including, in some cases, school staff members. Before the Feb. 14 attack, a few districts already had of“ cers at every campus, but the majority of districts didnt cover any or most elementary schools, and some didnt staff all middle schools. Now every school must have armed protection whenever its open.

Rotondo came out of retirement to serve on the districts emerging police force.

THE BOTTOM LINEWith classes resuming, this is the latest in a series of Back to School stories, examining issues faced by educators, parents and students. After Charlotte pupils started last week, Sarasota County children join them today.Other topics inside:The question of metal detectors, page 4 Encouraging girls in STEM, page 5 By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERLast month, a bird strike caused an Allegiant ” ight leaving Punta Gorda to make an unplanned stop in Orlando. Recent data shows that this bird strike could be the last, if proper technology is implemented. According to results published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Robotics, a ” ock of birds can be herded away from an airplane with just one drone. These results could prevent future bird deaths and alleviate the $1.2 billion in damages bird strikes cause the aviation industry each year, Newsweek reported. There have been 179,000 wildlife strikes and 262 human fatalities attributed to these strikes since 1990, the FAA reported. The drone prevents bird strikes by using an algorithm designed to predict sheep herding behaviors, Newsweek reported. Another algorithm was developed for the drone to lead ” ocks based on typical ” ocking patterns and behaviors. When herding birds away from an airspace, you have to be very careful in how you position your drone,Ž said Soon-Jo Chung, principal investigator on the drone herding project. If its too far away, it wont move the ” ock. And if it gets too close, you risk scattering the ” ock and making it completely uncontrollable. Thats dif“ cult to do with a piloted drone.ŽBird strikes: Problem solved?By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITORENGLEWOOD „ A dead baby sea turtle washed up at Russell Roots foot. Root, an Englewood native since 1977, carried the ” edgling turtle along Englewood Beach where hundreds gathered for Hands Along the Water Englewood. The event was held statewide and nearby beaches including Venice and Nokomis. This isnt just naturally occurring red tide thats killing more than 400 of our sea turtles,Ž Root said. Ive lived here for 40 years. I know what red tide is and understand that it happens. But, I promise, this is the worst Ive ever seen or smelled. Its been here for months.Ž As Root walked along the mile-long stretch of people wearing blue shirts, holding hands with strangers, some people cried. It sickens me to see that the baby sea turtles cant get Hundreds gather for beach pollution awareness event SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLENEMRICHRussell Root holds a baby sea turtle in his hands. He said it washed up at his foot Sunday morning just before the Hands Along the Water event began. By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERFathers in prison dont get to tuck their kids in to bed at night, take them to school in the morning, or cheer them on at sporting events. But through the Family Reading Program at Charlotte Correctional Institution, inmate fathers can read books to their children, even when incarcerated many miles from home. Its huge,Ž said volunteer George Walker, who facilitates the program most Fridays. They are so excited, especially when they get feedback by a phone call or visit.Ž Walker is the programs sole volunteer, who has facilitated the program since 2013. Now, hes about to retire to Knoxville, Tennessee, and the Department of Corrections is looking for someone new to carry on his work. Theres currently a wait list of 10 to 12 inmates hoping to participate and record a book for their kids. Assistant Warden Kara Williams said around 48 inmates participate in the program annually. Theyve touched a lot of families,Ž she said. The Family Reading Program started out as Story Book Mom and Dads, a part of Prison Fellowship. The Christian prison ministry was started by Chuck Colson, an aide to Richard Nixon who pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in the Watergate scandal. After serving seven months in prison in Alabama, Colson wanted to minister to the men and families he left behind, serving them through programs like Story Prison seeks volunteer for Family Reading Program MORE INFOFor more information on volunteering or donating books to the program, contact Assistant Warden Kara Williams at 941-833-8005 or kara.williams@ fdc.myflorida.com.OFFICERS | 4 RULE | 4 STRIKES | 5 PRISON | 5 POLLUTION | 5

Polk Avenue, Arcadia LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERASSISTANT EDITORToday wasnt on Kevin Doyles radar, he said from his Irish pub in Punta Gorda. But its still a day he will never forget. What happened 14 years ago damaged his business, the Celtic Ray Public House, so badly it took more than seven years to fully “x it back up. After all, Hurricane Charley hit the area as a Category 4 hurricane. To note just some of the local damage, Charley tore through about 11,000 residential structures, 27,000 roofs, and forced the rebuilding of a half-dozen demolished schools, according to Sun reports. I actually didnt even give it a thought,Ž Doyle said leading up to today. But when asked to think back, Doyle con“rmed that at the time he feared for his life. The pub stayed open for it all. Law enforcement told Doyle it was time to evacuate shortly before Charley hit. But they stayed. We believed it would go past us,Ž Doyle said. At the pub, they put sandbags below all the doors except one, so people could still come and go. And then it was too late to move. Plate glass windows blew out of the building with frames intact and smashed on Marion Avenue. Video was captured of the storm, and Doyle said at one time they even sold the videos at his business. To commemorate the day, he said, If we had televisions I would probably put up video of the storm.Ž But there arent any televisions at the Celtic Ray, and thats something Doyle said hes proud of. Instead, there are just memories to be shared. In the end, Charley was considered one of the costliest hurricanes in U.S. history „ estimated near $15 billion, according to information from the National Hurricane Center. It was responsible for at least 10 deaths in the U.S. Charley made landfall with maximum winds near 150 m.p.h. on the southwest coast of Florida just north of Captiva Island around 3:45 p.m. An hour later, Charleys eye passed over Punta Gorda,Ž states information from the NHC. The hurricane devastated Punta Gorda and neighboring Port Charlotte.Ž But now, with many buildings in Charlotte County rebuilt to sturdier codes, Doyle said he thinks the community is in a safer place this hurricane season than it was 14 years ago.Today marks 14 years since Hurricane Charley SUN FILE PHOTOCeltic Ray Owner Kevin Doyle HURRICANE HISTORYThe National Hurricane Center offers an overview online of some historic hurricanes, including Charley: www.nhc.noaa.gov/outreach/ history By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITEREarly voting for a slew of political spots begins next Saturday „ but what residents can vote on, depends on their party affiliation.

With the somewhat unusual circumstances and all the new of“cers coming aboard and training at the same time, he said theyre developing a special bond. Rotondo is among the 12 of“cers and one sergeant who have been sworn in and received their badges. The goal is to have 21 by Christmas, probably sooner,Ž said Sarasota County Schools Police Chief Paul Grohowski. Sarasota County Schools Executive Director for Safety and Security Michael Andreas said he appreciates the support by the cities of North Port, Sarasota and Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce, which is helping cover open spots until the agency “lls its staff. School Board Vice Chair Jane Goodwin said she has great con“dence in Andreas and Grohowski, as well as many of the new of“cers, who have varied experience. We are on the right track to make schools safe,Ž Goodwin said. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said he has sworn in a dozen additional deputies of his own for campus duty to help with the efforts and “nished training 11 volunteer school guardians.Ž The latter are non-instructional school employees who took a 144-hour course at the sheriffs of“ce that included “rearms training, crisis intervention training and active shooter scenarios. It takes courage to go into this line of work as a school safety deputy given recent events and it takes sel”essness to voluntarily become a school guardian,Ž Knight said. As we move into the upcoming school year, parents should feel a sense of ease and level of comfort with the complete school safety package we are providing.Ž In Charlotte, schools already had of“cers through deals with the sheriffs of“ce and the Punta Gorda Police Department, but now have supplemented that presence at a few locations. The safety of our students and staff has always been the top priority of our school district,Ž said Superintendent Steve Dionisio, who also implemented other changes when classes resumed last week. Some examples: a video communications device at the front door of schools and a visitors ID scanned by the RAPTOR security system, which is connected to a sex offender database and alerts staff if a match is found. Sweeping legislation enacted after the February school shooting in Parkland set in motion many of the Charlotte and Sarasota changes. Some are obvious to kids as they continue stepping back onto campuses while others are taking shape behind the scenes. The preparations have added a sobering note to this years back-to-school rituals, which usually center on lighter themes like anticipation, making new friends and the grudging goodbye to free time. But of“cials say they are working to prevent the new focus on safety from stoking fear. Educators have worked through the summer to implement security measures now required by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, also known as SB 7026. Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill in March, less than a month after a gunman killed 17 people at the Broward County school. The law created new policies to harden schools, both physically and organizationally. It set aside money to boost student mental health services and requires active shooter drills and trainings. Its the new reality that we live in,Ž said Pasco County sheriffs Lt. Troy Fergueson, who oversees school safety of“cers. We want to make safety something that is on everyones mind all the time ƒ preparing them to meet threats of the current century in U.S. schools.Ž The added security of“cers and safety drills are the most obvious changes for students. For many of them in elementary school, its the “rst time they see an armed person on campus, said Chris Stowe, a retired Marine master sergeant who oversees security in Pasco schools. Previously, resource of“cers were limited primarily to middle and high schools. Guards have been trained to ensure they know how to explain to elementary students why theyre there, Stowe said. Theyre not there to tell a second-grader that theyre there to kill a bad guy,Ž he said. They are to be the schools beat of“cer,Ž getting to know the people and the climate. Some parents in Hillsborough County have worried about how sensitive safety information will be delivered to younger students, said John Newman, director of school security in that district. Its a concern he understands and is working to balance with his job to keep students safe. What looks like a lockdown drill for kindergarten is a lot different than an 11th-grader,Ž he said. You dont want to traumatize a kid, but we also have to satisfy this mandate.Ž For drills and training, he said, Hillsborough is working with counselors and the state to tailor the language and materials used to educate younger students on safety. Other districts are doing the same, and plan to keep parents in the loop. We dont want to heighten the angst they might be feeling after Parkland,Ž said Pasco school superintendent Kurt Browning. Other changes, like expanded student mental health services, wont be as evident because they are happening under the radar,Ž Browning said. As instructed by the new law, districts have worked to meet an Aug. 1 deadline to submit mental health plans to the state for approval. Although those changes wont directly affect most students day-to-day, more resources will be there for those who need them. Sun Regional Editor Phil Fernandez and the Tampa Bay Times writers Megan Reeves and Jeffery S. Solochek supplemented this report.OFFICERSFROM PAGE 1agencies are “lling gaps by taking of“cers off the street or paying overtime. Thats happening in Palm Beach County. The district budgeted $9 million to add 75 of“cers to its 160-member in-house police department, and is asking voters to raise taxes to pay for them. But it isnt getting enough applicants „ Florida has several thousand police and deputy vacancies, and not just for schools. There simply are not enough of“cers to go around,Ž said Kathy Burstein, Palm Beach schools spokeswoman. The district, which has nearly 200,000 students at 170 campuses, will not be arming staff or hiring civilian guards. The Florida Legislature budgeted $165 million to partially cover districts new security costs, but then cut proposed education spending. Before the massacre, Gov. Rick Scott recommended increasing the districts base allocation by $152 per student. Legislators, after passing the security package, cut that to 47 cents. They robbed Peter to pay Paul,Ž said Jim Norton, superintendent of the fourschool Bay County district in the Panhandle. It had two of“cers but will now have four plus a supervisor at an additional district cost of about $50,000 „ the sheriffs of“ce is covering the rest. We all have the same commitment to safer schools, but we also have a duty to provide something beyond daycare.Ž The National Center for Education Statistics says a 2016 survey showed two-thirds of U.S. middle and high schools had an assigned police of“cer at least part-time; about a third of elementary schools were protected this way. Having an armed guard on campus doesnt guarantee safety. The deputy at Stoneman Douglas didnt confront the shooter who killed 17 people. Ten were killed in May at a Texas high school where two school of“cers exchanged “re with the suspect before he surrendered. But school of“cers have stopped other shootings before anyone was killed, such as one in May in Dixon, Illinois. The AP found 45 Florida districts are solely using police of“cers for campus protection. Most contract with law enforcement agencies to hire and employ them, while the few that have school police forces are expanding them. An experienced of“cer can cost $100,000 annually in salary, bene“ts and equipment, and any cost not covered by the state falls on local taxpayers. The staf“ng increases range from two of“cers in smaller districts to dozens in larger ones. Along with protecting students, such school resource of“cers investigate campus crimes, make arrests and can be reassigned off campus during summer and other breaks. In Flagler County, Superintendent James Tager said his district south of Jacksonville felt more comfortable sticking with deputies, many of whom become student mentors. He said little thought was given to arming staff. Teachers teach, and law enforcement does law enforcement,Ž he said. The other 22 districts are supplementing of“cers with guardiansŽ „ armed civilians or staff. They are vetted, receive 132 hours of training and must attain a higher score on the state “rearms test than rookie police of“cers. About 30 states allow school employees to carry “rearms, with varying restrictions, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center. Florida joined them after the Parkland shooting, but left this decision up to each district. Thirteen of those districts, mostly rural, are arming volunteer administrators, custodians and other non-classroom staff members, who get a onetime $500 stipend. The law bans teachers unless they are former police of“cers, active military members or Junior Reserve Of“cer Training Corps instructors. Rick Surrency, superintendent in Putnam County, which borders Flagler, supports arming staff because they have a vested interest in protecting those with whom they know and care for.Ž The other nine are supplementing of“cers by employing full-time guardians, at an estimated annual cost of $30,000 to $50,000 each. Their sole job is stopping lethal attacks. They dont have other law enforcement powers or responsibilities, and many districts are speci“cally hiring veterans and retired police of“cers. Six of the states 10 largest districts are hiring guardians, including 55 by Broward County, Stoneman Douglas district. To meet the goal of ensuring there is armed personnel on every campus, we are going to have to, in the short run, pursue multiple paths,Ž Broward Superintendent Robert Runcie said. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, an outspoken advocate of guardians, said they are cost-ef“cient while providing needed protection, but must be part of a larger strategy to identify potential attackers in advance and keep them out of classrooms. Guardians are the last, best opportunity to keep children safe when all of the other layers have failed,Ž Judd said.RULEFROM PAGE 1By SCOTT TRAVISSUN-SENTINELBroward schools have scrapped plans to install metal detectors at the start of the year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. Superintendent Robert Runcie said many issues have arisen, and plans will be put on hold, ahead of Wednesdays return to classes. As we continue our due diligence to implement the program „ consulting with vendors and experts and reviewing turnkey solutions „ many issues have been raised that require the District to pause and have a more thoughtful discussion on policy and procedural aspects of this pilot,Ž Runcie said. The issues include how to get 3,300 students through the school at the same time, how to staff them, what kind of equipment is needed, how to protect student privacy and what limitations the devices may have, the letter states. Since the tragedy, the district has received a number of offers to donate metal detectors. Of“cials said last month they were still studying which ones to use. Overpromise and underdeliver. Truly sad,Ž said Michael Udine, a county commissioner and former mayor of Parkland, whose kids graduated from Stoneman Douglas. Board member Robin Bartleman said it was embarrassing that the sixth largest school district in the country appeared to not know what it was doing. I am incredibly disappointed in the way metal detectors were handled,Ž Bartleman said. We have no credibility as a board.Ž Board member Rosalind Osgood disagreed. Its good leadership to take a pause and do more evaluation to make sure youre doing whats best for kids,Ž she said. Were trying to do the best we can.Ž The reversal marks the second time this month the school district has ”ip-”opped on major plans involving Stoneman Douglas. A week after hiring a retired Secret Service agent to review the actions of administrators related to the Feb. 14 massacre, Runcie said he was suspending that investigation. He said the inquiry would likely duplicate the work being done by a state commission thats also investigating what happened. The metal detector move frustrated parents like Steve Brown, whose son attends the school. Theyre not doing the things parents want to make the school safer,Ž Brown said. Its a week and a half until school starts and I dont feel any safer than I did in March or April.Ž Parents have been lobbying Runcie to not delay the metal detectors. Time is of the essence. Please do it now,Ž one email to Runcie said. The school district had said in June that metal detectors would be used on a pilot basis at Stoneman Douglas starting the “rst of day of school and possibly added to other schools later. A safety task force organized by the League of Cities recommended considering the devices for all schools. But it also said there may be some challenges to ensure theyre being used consistently and fairly. The physical deployment of these must be uniform across the district,Ž the report says, recommending the district study how the detectors are used in other districts with large schools. The report said the district should come up with procedures to check students, while showing respect for their privacy and personal belongings. The Sun supplemented this report.Metal detector plan scrapped for Stoneman Douglas One of the new Sarasota County Schools Police Department badges PHOTOS PROVIDEDSchool Safety Deputy Caswell Coley, assigned to Englewood Elementary, was among the new campus ocers sworn in last week by Sheri Tom Knight. Coley worked for the Punta Gorda Police Department and New College Police Department. He has eight years of law enforcement experience. School Safety Deputy Nicholas Laterza, assigned to Sky Academy-Englewood, is among the new campus ocers sworn in last week by Sarasota County Sheri Tom Knight. Laterza joins the Sheris Oce after serving two years working for Sarasota Memorial Hospital Department of Public Safety. SAFETY AROUND THE STATEHow other districts are handling safety: The Citrus County sheriff wont sign an agreement to keep officers in the schools, prompting the district to forge ahead with its own police force. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High will have 18 security personnel on campus daily. The Volusia district cant find enough people to serve as armed campus guards. The Lake district is asking voters to increase taxes to pay for security needs. The Hernando district just hired a safe schools director, a month after the state deadline passed. The Palm Beach district has decided to close schools on election days as a safety precaution. Charlotte already does that „ Aug. 28 and Nov. 6; Sarasota County doesnt. „ Compiled by Sun Regional Editor Phil Fernandez using data from the Tampa Bay Times, the Citrus County Chronicle, the Sun-Sentinel, WOFL and the Palm Beach Post. DID YOU KNOW?As part of their efforts to prevent school shootings, Florida lawmakers mandated the creation of a centralized database that will combine individual-level records from the states law-enforcement and social-services agencies with information from peoples personal social media accounts. The provision, tucked within the 105-page law passed in March following the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, marks a potentially dramatic increase in the states collection and sharing of data on individuals. While the new database could have big consequences for individual privacy and civil liberties, proponents described it as necessary to ensure public safety. „ Source: Education Week magazine

According to Miller, the aviation industry has found that the most effective way to reduce the chance of bird collisions is through habitat modification „ by making the airport less attractive to wildlife.Ž Airplanes themselves also have provisions in place to warn birds of their presence. Propellers have stripes so the birds have a chance to see it,Ž said Jim Williams, Western Michigan Universitys Director of Flight Operations and Safety. The airplane also flies with its landing lights, navigation lights and strobe lights on. This makes us visible to other aircrafts, but helps the birds see something coming,Ž Williams said. WMUs planes have not had an issue with bird strikes, Williams said. We would also consider using drones for monitoring our construction projects, fence line and property boundaries,Ž Miller said. This would prove useful for the 20-year Master Plan starting to be implemented, which contains 66 projects and will cost an estimated $206 million.STRIKESFROM PAGE 1Book Moms and Dads and Angel Tree, which provides Christmas gifts to children of inmates. Walker said after Colson died in 2012, Prison Fellowships funding started to decrease, and Storybook Dads was eventually cut from CCI. However, with the support of the Department of Corrections, the program was kept alive with a new name „ the Family Reading Program. Minimal funding is required, he said, as the books are generally donated or purchased very cheap. The recordings are burnt to CDs, which have also been donated, and the packages containing both the books and CDs are typically given to families when they come to visit the institution. There are books for different age levels, religious and non-religious, for boys and girls, and books with diverse characters. Walker said its not something families are expecting, and hes gotten lots of feedback, both written or by phone, from mothers who say how thrilled their kids were to hear dads voice. Its just amazing the love and admiration these children have for their dads,Ž he said. The recordings are edited by inmate Brendon Rao, who had experience with audio editing prior to his time in prison. Rao cuts out things like doors slamming, and any other interruptions or mistakes. Even for inmates who struggle with reading aloud, he and Walker take the time to make sure a high-quality recording is made. Though Rao has no children of his own, he said his own family members suffer twice as much as he does, and he cant imagine what it would be like for small children. Though dads in prison dont have much opportunity to parent, the recordings help inmates let their children know how much they care. If I can be a part of that, Im grateful,Ž Rao said. Any effort to show theyre still cared about and still loved has value.Ž Along with the book, inmates have the opportunity to record a message for their families. Its always positive, Walker said, things like, I miss you, listen to your mother, remember I love you, God loves you „ normal, everyday child and dad stuff.Ž Walker says hes gotten much more out of the program than hes put in, and he hopes it will carry on long into the future. For him, it doesnt matter what inmates have done or why theyre in prison. Were here for one purpose, to record books for the kids,Ž he said. They want their children to have the best and experience a better life.ŽEmail: aeasker@sun-herald.comPRISONFROM PAGE 1past all of the dead “sh to make it into the Gulf,Ž said Beverly Byrum, a longtime resident. Ive been crying over it. This is the “rst time in 30 years that we havent been able to come to the beach every week during the summer. We love the beach.Ž Byrums friend Kenneth Drake agreed. Ive lived here 11 years,Ž he said. This beach should be packed on a Sunday morning. Theres not a soul out there. No one can breathe. Some might say it was this bad in 2014, but it wasnt here for as long as it was then. Ive never had to wear a respirator to come to the beach.Ž Drakes 19-year-old son Dakota held a sign during the 15-minute beach solidarity event Sunday morning. I want my message to be heard around the world, to see this sign, so I wrote the same message in Korean, Chinese, Spanish and Japanese,Ž he said. The message is, the Earth is our mother, treat her like your mother. Im so upset by whats happened to Englewood and other beaches. This is a man-made disaster. Never before have I come to Englewood Beach and saw dead “sh every 2 feet I walked. Its never been this bad in my 19 years coming here. I have never seen eels, puffer “sh and baby sea turtles dead on the beach. Now I get nose bleeds when I come here.Ž Jeff McCord, who owns Captain Stumpys Shuttle service along Englewood Beach, had a mask on and was talking to customers he hasnt seen come to the beach in months. I havent made any money in 60 days,Ž McCord said. What bothers me is there was no plan for this. I dont just want to see money thrown at this issue because its not going to solve the deeper issue of whats going on in our water. In my 26 years in Florida, we havent had red tide hit us for so long like this, not at this level. Its a tough pill to swallow and I dont want to do it anymore. I want to see more done with clean air and water. I want the experts to understand the landmines and start anticipating these issues that impact us all so greatly.Ž Sarasota County Commission District 4 candidate Wesley Anne Beggs joined hands with strangers and stuck around to speak to her friends at the beach. Englewood isnt the district Im running in,Ž she said. District 4 goes from Proctor in Sarasota to Laurel. I came here today because Englewood businesses, residents and beach volunteers have been suffering the most. We saw how quickly the dead “sh were removed from Siesta Key, but Englewood has had this problem for months and months now. My friends who do the turtle patrol have been wearing masks for months and it hasnt gotten much better. We can talk about roundabouts, traf“c, construction, but the environment is my priority,Ž she said. One of the things the county commissioners can do is line up the fertilizer ban during the summer months with what the National Weather Service of“cially says is our rainy season. There is about two weeks on either side of the ban that doesnt line up with what has been declared our rainy season. Even just that little bit will help prevent fertilizer from going into our waterways.Ž On Manasota Beach, many gathered for the event. Anna Johnson, a Florida native, wore a gas mask. Im a skimboard surfer,Ž she said. We cant enjoy the water. We come home coughing all night. Its so hard to breathe. We just hope today brought awareness. This degree of pollution in our water has got to stop. All of us have dealt with red tide, but this is so much more than red tide.

By JILANA BOSTON and ANDREI CIMPIANNEW YORK UNIVERSITYWomen remain underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. In the field of engineering, for example, women earned fewer than 20 percent of doctorates in 2014. Such gaps, however, are not the result of differences in intellectual ability. Girls currently make up over half of the United States gifted student population. If girls have the smarts needed for success in STEM, then what factors explain why they dont pursue education and careers in these fields? There are two types of beliefs that discourage girls from pursuing STEM at an early age: a) negative stereotypes about their intellectual abilities, and b) stereotypes about the people who work in STEM careers as being nerdyŽ or socially awkward. As researchers who study how stereotypes and other psychological factors can dissuade girls from pursuing careers in math and science, we believe that parents and educators can help turn things around and close the gender gaps in STEM.Combat stereotypes about gender and intellectAs early as first grade, girls are less likely than boys to associate their own gender with intellectual ability. Given how pervasive these stereotypes are, how can parents and teachers step in and shield girls from the belief that theyre less intellectually capable „ and therefore less suited to STEM „ than boys?Teach a growth mindsetOne potential strategy is to help girls adopt a growth mindset, or the belief that their abilities can be developed as opposed to being static and unchangeable. Negative stereotypes rest on the assumption that girls lack the innate ability needed for success. Emphasizing how skills change and develop over time challenges this belief. When promoting a growth mindset, its essential to convey that effort and strategies build ability, and that this is true for everyone „ not just girls. For example, a teacher or parent might say, Anyone who wants to become good at math has to practice by doing lots of problems, especially hard ones that they can learn from.Ž Unless effort is made to seem normal for everyone, parents and teachers may unintentionally suggest that girls need to work extra hard to compensate for low ability.Teach the value of failureAnother component of fostering a growth mindset is to frame failure as a learning opportunity instead of something to be avoided or brushed under the carpet when it occurs. This can be done by focusing on the learning process „ for example, discovering where the mistakes come from and troubleshooting new strategies for the next time. When children see how their efforts have paid off, theyll be more likely to view STEM ability from a growth perspective.Talk about successful womenStereotypes can also be challenged by exposing girls to examples of women who have succeeded in STEM. The key is to portray these women as relatable and to highlight how they became scientists, making it easier for girls to envision themselves following a similar path to success.Provide opportunities to succeedAnother strategy is to provide opportunities for girls to succeed at STEM-related tasks to begin building their confidence. For example, a teacher might frame a programming assignment as a game instead, which might help young girls feel more motivated and capable of success.Combat false stereotypes about STEMWhen children imagine themselves holding different jobs in the future, they might question whether they are similar to the people who tend to have those jobs. A mismatch between a young persons self-concept and their impression of the members in a certain field can make the field seem like an unattractive career option. Unfortunately, media depictions of people in STEM are often narrow and perpetuate false stereotypes, such as that scientists are eccentric, nerdyŽ or geeky,Ž obsessive and detached from reality. Similarly, scientists work is assumed to be lonely and isolating. It is also seen as being done in pursuit of self-centered goals, such as satisfying ones curiosity, as opposed to altruistic goals, such as helping others. These cultural images act as a barrier for girls specifically: Girls are socialized to think of themselves as different from the average scientist on most of these dimensions, leading them to favor fields populated by people with whom they more readily identify and who have more altruistic goals. However, many modern scientists dont fit the image of the geeky,Ž eccentric loner, and they do work collaboratively for the good of others.Help children relate to people in STEMTo counteract the effects of these images, parents and teachers can introduce children to diverse and relatable examples of people in STEM. They can do so through online resources, such as This is What a Scientist Looks Like and Skype a Scientist. Parents and teachers might also tell children that scientists often work together in teams and invent things that help people in their everyday lives. These types of messages are likely to help both girls and boys because they reveal a deeper purpose for learning STEM-related subjects.Create an environment that promotes scienceSome have attributed womens underrepresentation in STEM to their inherent preferences. However, the scientific evidence indicates that these preferences are shaped by cultural beliefs. They are not determined by innate differences. Parents and educators are in a great position to help dispel stereotypes that discourage girls from becoming scientists. And one of the best ways to do that, we believe, is to create environments that promote the idea that science careers are within their reach.Heres how to encourage more girls to pursue science math careersTHE CONVERSATION FROM PAGE ONE

What happened to doing and supporting whats good for our country? We just had a 4.1 percent GDP second quarter and the Dems wont accept it. Why did they accept 1.5 percent to 2 percent in the last administration? Along with that, millions of Americans are bene“ting from the Trump tax cuts that the Dems say they will take away if they can. Also, it used to be that, even with political differences, people would still support and stand for our national anthem and ”ag. Now, ourŽ national anthem and ”ag are being used to disrupt and divide ourŽ country. I havent attended or even watched an NFL game since this started. Thousands of others have/are done the same. The founding principles, values and symbols of our country are being attacked. That all started with a 49ers player depicting cops as pigs on his socks. Black Lives Matter developed and Obama honored them in the White House. BLM, chanted pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon.Ž Also, we heard, What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!Ž Did Obama ever try to stop BLM, or anyone else, calling for violence against cops? No! He honored BLM in the White House. So, today what are the Dems running on? No wall, no borders, sanctuary cities/states and abolish ICE. Huh? Also, attacking Trump thus America 24/7, as MSM does. Ross Walcott EnglewoodWaksler unworthy of a voteEditor: Campaigning for School Board, Geri Waksler ”aunts her rsum but neglects mentioning shes the attorney for Mosaic, the notorious phosphate company seeking to rezone 14,000 acres of DeSoto County farmland for mining. Environmental experts authoritatively testify this represents a clear threat to the Peace River. Our Peace River. As a land use attorney, Waksler has every right to take Mosaics money. But she didnt have to. Apparently, environmental morality is not an issue for her „ its just business. Remember satirist Tom Lehrers lyric about German scientist Werner Von Braun? Once the rockets go up who cares where they come down. Thats not my department says Werner Von Braun.Ž Waksler wants to serve on the board that determines how Charlotte Countys schoolchildren will be taught ethical decision-making and the need to safeguard our environment. Shes clearly the wrong person to have that kind of in”uence. Waksler isnt worthy of your vote. Michael Hirsh Punta GordaRestore Pelosi, Schumer to powerEditor: Wake up, America. Its time to ride the blue waveŽ and restore Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to their rightful places in Congress. They have promised to rescind Trumps insane changes to the tax code and take back those crumbsŽ taxpayers received. Also, restore the highest corporate tax in the world since it will be a disaster if those corporations come back to America and Europe and China lose all those jobs. After all, our workers were getting along very well on unemployment insurance, welfare, food stamps, etc., and will now have to go back to work and pay taxes. And he doubled the standard exemption, which will mean more than half of taxpayers will be able to “le a single-page return. Can our economy withstand the closing of all those H & R Block of“ces? Oh, and we do not need a wall. We need cheap labor and they deserve our way of life, including health care and guaranteed incomes. Why should they stay home and change things there when we have everything right here? Also, just imagine the money saved with open borders. We wont need the Border Patrol or ICE, but we will have many more future Democrats. Full employment and a booming economy are no reason to leave the Republicans in control. Bob Davis PlacidaTime to begin impeachmentEditor: I, for one, have given up trying to talk with or reason with staunch Trump supporters. While I dont question their sincerity or patriotism, I do question their cult-like following of their self-proclaimed stable genius. It is a serious ”aw, if not downright dangerous. Why do I say this? Read on. After listening to these folks I “nd that they have no problem with Trumps refusal to release his tax returns, retaining control over his business dealings, undermining our health care system with no credible replacement, refusing to address the extremely high cost of drugs while siding with Big Pharma, personally attacking anyone who criticizes him by name-calling, alienating our allies, publicly undermining our intelligence community while endorsing Putins propaganda, calling any negative reporting fake news,Ž tweeting his own fake news freely and constantly, calling the press the enemy of the people,Ž refusing to hold press conferences, undermining Special Counsel Muellers investigation and on and on. I have serious issues with all of the above and cant understand why anyone can turn a blind eye to them. For me, Trumps performance in Helsinki was the last straw. Arriving unprepared to meet with one of the worlds most highly seasoned politicians and then publicly throwing the entire intelligence community under the bus while publicly agreeing with Putins denials is clearly an impeachable offense. What else does he have to do or say for our gutless Congress to draw up articles of impeachment on this clearly unstable and impulsive president? Tom Kneebis Port CharlotteAnd now this, from El JobeanEditor: Thank you for the article on El Jobean and to Diana Harris, the author. The fishing is still good in El Jobean. Applications are going out for our Christmas Parade. Free. Participation and vendor space. Come one and all, and help us celebrate. If you are moving or just cleaning out your treasures, the Jesus Loves You ministry can use your stuff. For the gift shop or the homeless personally. Towels, socks and underwear, pillows and tarps. The Community Leagues big problem is still in court, but it and all of our programs are moving forward. The building has been brought back up to par by a few dedicated members, and Hank Bartleys bench has been repaired. The fence is also being tackled. Thank you, guys. Congratulations to our own Holly the beautician, barber for being highlighted in the newspaper. She is our pride. One more mention. The Ragin Cajun is closed for a family health emergency. Our thoughts are with them, and hope they can re-open soon. Question: Have any of you sign waving pro-life people ever adopted or fostered any of these unwanted babies you “ght for? Do you take care of when they are drying out from a doping mom? Or when dad beats them up or save them when they are thrown away? They would be better off not to have been. On a happier note, be nice to your neighbor, or just ignore them. Pat Spence El JobeanTwo Republicans are competing for a chance to replace two-term Rep. Julio Gonzalez in House District 74 in November „ one an eight-year member of the North Port City Commission and the other a political newcomer with the name recognition and fundraising connections that come as the son of a well-known Sarasotaarea congressman. North Port City Commisioner Linda Yates is facing off against James Buchanan in the district that encompasses North Port, Englewood, Venice, Nokomis and unincorporated Sarasota south of Clark Road. The winner of the Aug. 28 Republican primary will face Democrat Tony Mowry and independent Robert Kaplan in the General Election. James Buchanan is the son of longtime Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key. He grew up in the Sarasota area, graduated from Florida universities and runs James Buchanan Realty on Longboat Key. He has bought a house in the district „ in Osprey … and plans to move in after closing by the end of the August. This is his second House race this year. This spring, Buchanan was in a special election for a vacated seat in House District 72 in northern Sarasota, but lost to Democrat Margaret Good. He told our Editorial Board he was not shopping for a legislative seat but that district residents had asked him to consider it.Ž He did. He also said his foray into politics wasnt simply a legacy move for the Buchanan family. I want to work for people,Ž he said. About his lack of experience in politics or thin resume in public service, he told us, I think Im the best candidate „ actually, I know it. dont want to be considered a politician. Im willing to work across party lines.Ž At the top of his priority list were the build-out of River Road, reduction of regulations and taxes for small businesses and environmental quality. The pollution in Lake Okeechobee must be cleaned up. I think its important we maintain our environment,Ž he said. We need to have a clean water source in Florida.Ž He is against offshore drilling, but not dead-set against fracking. His opponent, Yates, has lived in the area for 13 years. An energetic campaigner with a strong grassroots network of volunteer supporters, Yates said she thought she had the greatest ability of represent the area.Ž She added, Sarasota County hasnt had the attention on the state level I think we deserve.Ž Yates called herself a fiscal conservativeŽ who would represent the average citizen like myself.Ž She also stressed environmental stewardship, particularly in regard to the green algae flowing from Lake Okeechobee. She called that situation really deplorable.Ž A lot has to be done and it has to be done quickly,Ž she said. Water issues are the number one issue in the state of Florida. We are not going to accomplish economic development with fixing this problem. From a public health perspective, I think its vitally important.Ž She also supports fully funding Florida Forever land preservation in accordance with Amendment 1. The voters spoke loud and clear,Ž she said. Her platform, Yates said, centered on three Es: the economy, the environment and education. Infrastructure must keep pace with growth. Workforce training must be improved, with greater emphasis on vocational training and skills trades. Yates trails by a four-one margin in spending for this campaign, but noted she came from out of nowhere (eight) years agoŽ to capture a North Port commission seat. In that race, she beat the good-old boy systemŽ and later went on win re-election. Can she do it again, on the larger stage? We believe so. We have no doubt Yates would bring the same work ethic, passion for service and attention to detail (sometimes to a fault) that she brings to her job on the North Port City Commission.

The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9VIEWPOINTMemo to Al Sharpton: Bug out, dude. The decision by Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri not to immediately arrest the shooter in the latest stand your groundŽ case in our state has nothing to do with his reluctance to prosecute a crime. If you want to blame someone for this “asco, blame the Republicandominated Florida Legislature. And while youre at it, kick Florida Democrats upside their frequently self-righteous backsides for their role in for the states lopsided gun laws. They got their tails out”anked as Republicans took complete control of state government over the last 20 years. While the GOP pressed for education reform,Ž pro-growth, anti-regulation, antipublic education and taxschmax laws, nowhere has the state felt the impact of Republican rule more than in gun laws. Marion Hammer of the National Ri”e Association became better-known as a policy manipulator than anyone the Democrats had to offer as a counterbalance. And so we have stand your groundŽ rewritten as essentially a license to kill because now a shooter can claim they felt threatened enough in a confrontation to use lethal force. That nuance of law led Gualtieri to decline to arrest Michael Drejka for fatally shooting Markeis McGlockton in an argument over a parking violation that spiraled out of control. At a rally in Clearwater, Sharpton said Gualtieri should give up his badgeŽ for not immediately arresting Drejka, who is white, for shooting McGlockton, who is black, to death. Nonsense. The better argument is whether, regardless of color, Drejka felt empowered on some level by the states idiotic interpretation of SYG to use lethal force in what should have been a relatively minor scuf”e, if that. A lot of people, including me, warned this type of confrontation was coming once state Republican lawmakers rammed this SYG modi“cation through. I asked Gualtieri on Tuesday night if he would have thought differently about arresting Drejka under the old standard of SYG. This is an extremely complicated case,Ž he told me. The state statute as I understand it says you cant arrest without probable cause.Ž I believe his interpretation is correct. Its what GOP lawmakers had in mind when they pushed through the NRAbacked enhancements to SYG. And that, folks, is what Gualtieri is required to enforce. If outsiders like Al Sharpton really want to make a difference here more than a headline, stop blaming law enforcement of“cers on the front line for enforcing what legislators forced upon them. They should stop pretending this is solely a black-white issue. Its a red issue, as in the blood that is being spilled when lawmakers decide that its legal to shoot “rst and justify later. Thats what the protest should be about. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune, where he covered sports, politics and city government. The column moved on website FloridaPolitics.com.Memo to Al Sharpton „ you missed the target Joe HENDERSONColumnist This summer has been the summer of red tide and our Republican-led federal, state and county of“cials have failed to address the crisis. The stench of red tide has come in waves over the course of this summer „ “rst the respiratory irritation of the algae itself and then the noxious smell of the resulting “sh kill. My family has been in this area for over 40 years and nobody has experienced a red tide like this one. Unfortunately, our so-called leadership has consistently shown a lack of concern for environmental issues, instead siding with their donors „ big developers, fossil fuel companies, agri-business, and Big Sugar. Yes, red tide is a normal, annually occurring growth of algae. What is not normal is the current rate and spread of its growth. According to scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota and other studies, the species of algae that causes red tide, Karenia brevis may use nutrients from runoff to sustain itself longer in the inshore environment than it would absent the nutrient runoff. In other words, our own policies, including rampant overdevelopment, may be contributing to the smell coming from our beaches. We must do better! I often boast about the beaches of Nokomis, Englewood and Venice. Although vaguely aware of it as a child, I now fully appreciate the public access and proximity of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We take pride in our beaches. The problem, however, is that the policies coming from our elected of“cials are in direct con”ict with the will of the voters. For example, in 2014, we passed Amendment 1 by an overwhelming margin, requiring the use of documentary stamp fees to purchase land for conservation. The Florida Legislature has consistently ignored the requirements of Amendment 1, failing to use this money to conserve our land, as Floridians demanded. Floridas delicate ecosystems are interconnected and the solutions to our environmental issues require statewide action. We have to take measures to combat the amount of harmful chemicals were allowing into our waterways if we want clean, safe beaches. Our beaches could end up looking like Lake Okeechobee, where over 90 percent of the waters surface is now covered in a thick layer of blue green algae „ an outbreak largely attributed to groundwater runoff. The people have spoken and overwhelming decided to preserve our lands and protect our delicate and interconnected ecosystems. This summer, red tide is affecting the quality of our beaches, threatening our wildlife, and putting the health of our residents and tourists at risk for months rather than a few weeks. The charter fishermen in my family have seen precipitous declines in fishing trips this summer. My elderly clients have suffered respiratory problems with the air quality. This is a crisis. Its time we stopped electing politicians that are funded primarily by special interests. Only then will we see the policy changes that bene“t the people of Florida. Floridians overwhelming support preserving our natural environment. Unfortunately, the Republican-led leadership has not listened to the people. Its time that our elected of“cials listened to the people, declare an emergency, and act now.

Ed Garrick graduated from high school in time to get into the last few hot months of the Korean con”ict before its armistice. After Army basic training, he arrived off the coast of Inchon, North Korea, and was taken ashore in landing craft in the middle of a snowstorm. It was before the armistice was signed,Ž the Port Charlotte resident recalled more than 60 years later. We took a train with no windows. Chicken wire covered where the windows would have been. Armed MPs were at either end of the passenger car. We had our ri”es, but we had no ammunition.Ž We got off the train and they sent us to our out“ts. A close buddy, Tom Perkins, and I ended up together in Love Company, 31st Battalion, 7th Division,Ž Garrick said. Finally, we got to Pork Chop Hill.Ž The hill was an inconsequential mound of dirt along the 38th Parallel dividing the two Koreas. It was fought over during the spring and summer of 1953 by hundreds of American and North Korean troops while armistice talks were in progress at Panmunjeom. During the initial assault, the U.S. and its United Nations allies captured Pork Chop Hill. Immediately afterward the North Koreans and Chinese staged a much larger assault on the hill that killed hundreds of Americans and thousands of enemy soldiers. A total of 547 Americans lost their lives and 1,036 were wounded taking and losing the hill. The enemy lost approximately 1,500 killed and another 4,000 wounded. The hill was meaningless. We were told we couldnt just go up the hill. The enemy controlled the space between where we were and the hill with its artillery. The only way we could get up the hill was if our troops laid down a smoke screen in the area the enemy controlled with its artillery.Ž They did „ and Garrick and Perkins went up the hill together. We were reporting to our company commander and I asked one of the fellows standing there, How long do you have to be here before you get R&R? He replied, Dont worry about it; nobody ever lived that long!Ž That was their introduction the Pork Chop Hill. I was put in a .30-caliber machine-gun bunker. We were in the last bunker to the right. There was a series of bunkers all along Port Chop Hill,Ž he explained. The hill was very steep and there was an 8-foot trench along the top. Tree roots stuck out in the trench and we tied cans to the roots so at night when somebody came down the trench you could hear them coming. If you stuck your head above the trench you were likely to get a sniper bullet between your eyes. Myself and a young second lieutenant were sent out in front of the front lines to a listening post,Ž Garrick said. We were out there quite a while when all of a sudden we heard all this commotion. We called back to our lines and they shot up parachute ”ares that lit up everything. We could see hundreds of enemy soldiers below us getting ready to attack. I had never seen so many enemy soldiers in all my life. We had a bunch of hand grenades with us at our listening post. We waited until they got up one-third of the way up Pork Chop Hill, then we started throwing grenades at them. We were throwing grenades just as fast as we could pull the pins. About the time we ran out of grenades, we realized we were caught in the middle. The Chinese were advancing on our position and if we retreated toward our lines we would be caught in the middle of incoming enemy artillery “re. Finally the lieutenant said, Lets get the hell out of here! So the lieutenant is running down one side of Pork Chop Hill and Im running down the other side. I looked over at the lieutenant who is running as artillery “re is coming down. All of a sudden he disappears. He was hit by an artillery round. I got back to our line on one leg and one arm. I had been hit in the left elbow by a round and taken another round in my left leg and I was grazed by a bullet to my chest that didnt go through. I went back to our company headquarters because I couldnt “nd anyone alive on our side,Ž Garrick said. I took a carbine because I couldnt handle my M-1 because of my injuries and got the hell out of there. I started toward my bunker down the trench and met the Chinese who were coming up. I let go with my carbine and they let go with a hand grenade that overshot me a bit. I was hit with shrapnel in my right leg and backside. Things were getting pretty hairy on Pork Chop Hill. The Chinese were about to take over the “rst part of the hill where I was. They had so many people coming up the hill they were stepping over their own bodies.Ž While all this was going on, his buddy Tom was trapped in a section of the trench with a bunch of dead Americans. He played dead and was bypassed by the enemy. He escaped back to U.N. lines and lived to talk about it. Finally when we were told to pull off the hill there was only a handful of our company left,Ž Garrick said. I couldnt walk by then, so all I could do is roll down the backside of Pork Chop Hill. When I reached the bottom I was tangled up in intercom wire that ran all over the hill. I untangled myself and was trying to “gure out how I was going to get to a nearby access road that ran along the bottom of the hill. I crawled to the road and was lying there with my parka on, bleeding to death. I pulled the belts off several dead soldiers around me and tried to use them as tourniquets, but couldnt tie them off because I only had one hand to work with. So Im lying there thinking about my plight. Its only a matter of time before (the enemy) come along and sticks me with his bayonet or puts a bullet between my eyes. Then I get this bright idea, if Im going, Im going to take someone with me. So I took a grenade I had on me and pulled the pin and held the live grenade in my hand. A short time later a Jeep come along the road where I was. It had a couple of Colombian soldiers in it who didnt speak English. The Colombians were in a unit up on Pork Chop Hill near where we were. As soon as the “rst shot was “red they ”ed. They were moving bodies out of the road so their Jeep could pass without rolling over them. When they got to me and saw I as still alive they threw me in the back of the Jeep, grenade and all. So the three of us are racing down the road in the Jeep and it hits a bump in the road. When it does, the grenade Im holding comes out of my hand and lands in a drainage ditch “lled with water and explodes. The two Columbians dropped me off at an aid station run by Scandinavians who didnt speak English either. They worked on my wounds and the next day I was ”own to a hospital in Tokyo. The doctors were really great and within a few weeks I was ambulatory.Ž The last six months of his time in the Army was spent as company clerk for an Army unit in Japan. He was shipped home and discharged from the service in April 1954. Garrick went back to General Electric, where he worked before he went to war. That lasted about a year and his next job was a salesman for Life Savers candy. He started as a salesman and 18 years later he was in charge of sales for the Northeastern U.S. From there he went into the import business for another dozen or so years. He and his late wife, Martha, retired to Port Charlotte in 2011. They had two sons, Michael and Tom.

Q: Something no one knows about you: A: For several years I was an investigator for South Jersey Paranormal Research in New Jersey.By RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONENTAnais Aurora Badias first step into medical practice was a big one. Her next three were simply logical. Badia, a pediatric and adult dermatologist, in May opened an office in Punta Gorda. The new practice, at 329 E. Olympia Ave., is the fourth in the logical progression of workplaces that began in 2001 with a hit-theground-running opening of Florida Skin Center in Fort Myers. I was still a secondyear resident in dermatology when I started getting ready to go into private practice,Ž she said. At the end of my second year, while I was still in training, I decided I wanted to open a practice. I advertised in the local Yellow Pages, got a local number and, literally, when I started I already had 13 patients scheduled my first day. I graduated and opened my practice. I never worked for anyone.Ž Three more offices followed in steady progression: Cape Coral, Lehigh, and now Punta Gorda. All of the openings, she said, have been patient-driven. Her practice recently was named to Florida Trend magazines 10th annual list of best small companies for the second straight year. In 2017, Badia was named a Distinguished entrepreneur of Southwest Florida by Florida Gulf Coast University. Its wonderful to build something from nothing,Ž she said in a press release announcing the award. It proves you can do whatever you would like, as long as you are willing to put the effort in.Ž Badia bought the Punta Gorda office about a year ago. It is two stories, 7,000 square feet, and her mother, who has the same name, took charge of all the renovations. Shes an architect. She designed the first office in Fort Myers from the ground up. Ambiance sets Badias offices apart from other medical facilities. According to a press release, the practice in Punta Gorda features six speciallydesigned Mohs surgical suites that provide comfort and amenities to patients. Each surgical guest suite includes a gourmet coffee and tea bar, juice, water, and other beverages, plus hot snack items from a microwave oven. Patients can also enjoy music and a highdefinition television in their suite, where they remain for the entire visit. A lot of our focus on patient care is really to make sure the patient „ what we call guests „ is comfortable,Ž Badia said. Theyre coming in, obviously, for a medical service. We want to make sure theyre comfortable. So, we make it an inviting environment, not such a sterile environment where its almost like drudgery to go to the doctors.Ž Badia is the daughter of parents who fled Castros Cuba in 1964. She grew up in Dover, Del. She went to the University of Miami, received her training in dermatology at Albany Medical Center in New York and trained in pediatrics at Miami Childrens Hospital. She is a resident of Fort Myers and the mother of 15-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. She was drawn to dermatology while training in pediatrics at Miami Childrens. I had the opportunity to do a rotation in pediatric dermatology, and it just was an instant interest,Ž she said. I liked the visual aspect of it. I liked the fact that you could help patients pretty quickly. You could see results in their treatment in one or two weeks for the most part, maybe sooner. I just really enjoy helping people. I really do. I just love it. I think my favorite thing to do is when theres a challenging case, when a patient has been having a really tough time of it, that we see results and they feel so much better. Its very gratifying.Ž Harvard-trained Chetan Vedvyas came from Houston Methodist to join the Punta Gorda practice as its director of Mohs surgery and dermatologic oncology. Mohs is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer. He didnt know Badia personally. What I knew of her before joining this group was, its a practice with quite exceptional credentials,Ž he said. Sometimes, when you move to different parts of the country, you dont quite know what youre going to get. But I was really quite happy to discover that someone of Dr. Badias caliber was here.Ž Then, he laughed. Shes also sort of known as one of the experts in keeping people looking young in our community. That makes her a pretty popular person around town.ŽOh, lazy, hazy beach days. One of the most wonderful things about summer. And whats a day at the beach without a cooler full of goodies? But one must be strategic when it comes to packing food for the beach. Because at the beach, there is sand. And hot sun. And wind. You want to make sure to bring along some protein that will hold up in the cooler and that everyone can eat with their hands. You should also try to avoid taking too many salty foods because youll already be dehydrated and salty from the sea. And chocolate and beaches do not go together because melty pile of goo. Its best to pack healthy snacks to keep your energy up if youre in and out of the water. Even if youre just reading on the beach and not swimming, you dont want to feel bloated because of too many greasy treats. So, what do you bring to eat at the beach? Here are some great, simple, healthy ideas! € Fresh fruit. Whole fruits are better than cut up fruit when it comes to sandy “ngers. Apples, peaches, bananas (though they can get mushy in the heat so put them in the cooler) ƒ all good choices. A container of watermelon or cantaloupe slices you can pick up from the rind is also fabulous for the beach. These foods are all hydrating, too, which is a bonus! € Nuts. A great quick source of protein. You can make up a little trail mix of dried fruit and nuts if you think you can eat this without crunching on sand (challenge!). € Crackers. If you need to bring along some carbs, try crackers instead of chips. Less salty and better for you if you choose whole grain crackers. € Wraps. Whether its a tortilla or your favorite gluten-free leaf, a sandwich “lling is more fun to eat when its wrapped up in something, than when its between two pieces of bread. Kids can also eat a wrap more easily with one hand, so their second is free for holding their juice box. Wraps are easier to ... well, wrap, too „ place a cloth napkin or even a paper towel on the bottom half, allowing sandy “ngers to still hold onto the wrap without getting sand in the food itself. € Fried chicken. Yum. Need I say more? Fried chicken is perfect for the beach because it will hold up in the cooler, and you can eat it with your hands. (But you can also pack paper plates and utensils, too, if you wish ...) € Food on skewers. From boiled eggs and cheese to cured meats and veggies, kabobs are always a hit. Especially for the beach so you have no worries of sandy hands touching the foods. € Salad wraps. Salad is not considered a fun food by many people. (I know.) But veggies are important. Instead of going through the effort of “xing a big Tupperware bowl full of salad that no-body will want to eat, wrap the salad toppings inside of lettuce leafs and fasten with toothpicks. Spread a little dressing inside with the cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, or whatever else you like in your salads, and you have handy little easy to eat salads disguised as lettuce wraps. € Beef jerky. Another great source of protein, beef jerky doesnt spoil in a beach bag, and even if it falls in the sand, it can be easily wiped off. The perfect beach protein! € Tradition. All of the above ideas are great, but theres a lot to be said for tradition. If your mother packed egg salad sandwiches and iced tea for the beach, and you cant eat an egg salad sandwich to this day without thinking and smiling about the beach, then pack that. Even if its not the most strategic of beach snacks, go for it. Sometimes memories have to be made, even if it means sand in your teeth. (Just make sure to keep it stored in a cooler, for health reasons!)

She was among the “rst employees hired by then-President Ferold Davis when he and the other founding board members opened the bank in 1988, and she is celebrating her 30th anniversary right along the bank. After I graduated high school, my mother told me it was time to get a job,Ž Norus recalled, and so I interviewed with Mr. Davis and began working the next day. A lot of construction and remodeling was going on, and I remember just a card table and chairs. There was still lots to be done to open a bank, however, and so began my banking career.Ž Norus was promoted from teller to customer service representative and subsequently moved to loans, then loan operations. She is currently Vice President of Loan Operations and Collections. The name Desiree Norus should be synonymous with Englewood Bank & Trust,Ž said Senior Vice President and Senior Commercial Lender Kevin Casey. She has played an integral role in our growth over the years, and her knowledge and experience in loan operations is invaluable in helping us foster a sustainable community and economy through fast, local lending decisions.Ž Norus devotion to the bank and her work is matched by her love of Englewood, where she was born and raised. She was the “rst Little Miss Englewood in 1971 and graduated from Lemon Bay High School in 1986. She learned to water ski at Ski Alley in Boca Grande Pass, where she made her “rst television commercial on a ski disk. She also modeled for Mercury Marine, which manufactures boat engines and equipment and created a calendar featuring Norus photos. In banking, Norus earned degrees from the American Bankers Association in consumer lending, commercial lending, real estate lending and general banking. She volunteered with Englewood Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading for more than “ve years. Her duties included running the concession stand, for which she recruited local high school students to help wait on customers and operated cash registers. One of the students subsequently followed in Norus footsteps and became a teller at Englewood Bank & Trust. Married with four children, Norus is based at the banks main of“ce, 1111 South McCall Road, and may reached at 941-475-6771.Loan ops manager shares bank aninversary PHOTOS PROVIDEDDesiree Norus Desiree as Little Miss EnglewoodKnow of a woman who should be featured?Email todayswoman@sun-herald.com PHOTO BY RICHARD SHOTWELLIn this Dec. 1, 2017, “le photo, Demi Lovato arrives at Jingle Ball at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Renovations will begin today on the recreation center and community center at Tringali Park. Both facilities will remain open during renovation with previously scheduled classes ongoing. Renovations will include a new control desk and circulation area, a new arts and crafts center and a fully renovated kitchen. The Tringali renovations should be complete by March 2019, according to information from the county. The pool will be closed Aug. 14-24 at the Port Charlotte Beach Park. Renovations will include replacement of back-splash tile and installing a new “lter medium to the highrate sand-“ltration system. With schools back in session last Friday, this is the time to take on repairs, said Recreation Superintendent Marc Solomon. Traditionally, the pool experiences a decline in usage during this time, and the time to do the work is ahead of our seasonal residents arriving to spend the winter months,Ž he said. The cost to renovate the pool is $20,645 coming from the countys capital management fund. The Tringali Park project will cost $515,381, paid for by the penny sales tax initiative that county commissioners enacted in 2014. We have renovations occurring at all of our recreation centers in an effort to provide additional amenities to our community and enhance their quality of life,Ž Solomon said.Renovations at 2 Charlotte parks begin today TODAYCrafting, Handmade items avail or help us create one of a kind crafts, Lemon Bay Womans Club, 51 N.

Its a well-known fact that for many senior citizens in the U.S. their home is their single biggest asset, often accounting for more than 50% of their total net worth. Yet, according to new statistics from the mortgage industry, senior homeowners in the U.S. are now sitting on more than 6.1 trillion dollars of unused home equity.1 With people now living longer than ever before and home prices back up again, ignoring this hidden wealthŽ may prove to be short sighted. All things considered, its not surprising that more than a million homeowners have already used a government-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or HECMŽ loan to turn their home equity into extra cash for retirement. However, today, there are still millions of eligible homeowners who could bene“ t from this FHA-insured loan but may simply not be aware of this  retirement secret .Ž Some homeowners think HECM loans sound too good to be true.Ž After all, you get the cash you need out of your home but you have no more monthly mortgage payments.NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE PAYMENTS?2 EXTRA CASH?Its a fact: no monthly mortgage payments are required with a government-insured HECM loan;2 however the homeowners are still responsible for paying for the maintenance of their home, property taxes, homeowners insurance and, if required, their HOA fees. Another fact many are not aware of is that HECM reverse mortgages “ rst took hold when President Reagan signed the FHA Reverse Mortgage Bill into law 29 years ago in order to help senior citizens remain in their homes. Today, HECM loans are simply an e ective way for homeowners 62 and older to get the extra cash they need to enjoy retirement. Although todays HECM loans have been improved to provide even greater “ nancial protection for homeowners, there are still many misconceptions. For example, a lot of people mistakenly believe the home must be paid o in full in order to qualify for a HECM loan, which is not the case. In fact, one key advantage of a HECM is that the proceeds will “ rst be used to pay o any existing liens on the property, which frees up cash ” ow, a huge blessing for seniors living on a “ xed income. Unfortunately, many senior homeowners who might be better o with HECM loan dont even bother to get more information because of rumors theyve heard. ats a shame because HECM loans are helping many senior homeowners live a better life. In fact, a recent survey by American Advisors Group (AAG), the nations number one HECM lender, found that over 90% of their clients are satis“ ed with their loans. While these special loans are not for everyone, they can be a real lifesaver for senior homeowners. e cash from a HECM loan can be used for any purpose. Many people use the money to save on interest charges by paying o credit cards or other high-interest loans. Other common uses include making home improvements, paying o medical bills or helping other family members. Some people simply need the extra cash for everyday expenses while others are now using it as a safety netŽ for “ nancial emergencies. If youre a homeowner age 62 or older, you owe it to yourself to learn more so that you can make an informed decision. Homeowners who are interested in learning more can request a free 2018 HECM loan Information Kit and free Educational DVD by calling American Advisors Group toll-free at 1-(800) 661-4573 At no cost or obligation, the professionals at AAG can help you “ nd out if you qualify and also answer common questions such as: 1. Whats the governments role? 2. How much money might I get? 3. Who owns the home after I take out a HECM loan? You may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover when you call AAG for more information today.1Source: http://reversemortgagedaily.com/2016/06/21/seniors-home-equity-grows-to-6-trillion-reverse-mortgageopportunity. 2If you qualify and your loan is approved, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) must pay off any existing mortgage(s). With a HECM loan, no monthly mortgage payment is required. A HECM increases the principal mortgage loan amount and decreases home equity (it is a negative amortization loan). AAG works with other lenders and nancial institutions that offer HECMs. To process your request for a loan, AAG may forward your contact information to such lenders for your consideration of HECM programs that they offer. When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property no longer belongs to borrowers, who may need to sell the home or otherwise repay the loan with interest from other proceeds. AAG charges an origination fee, mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees (added to the balance of the loan). The balance of the loan grows over time and AAG charges interest on the balance. Interest is not tax-deductible until the loan is partially or fully repaid. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes and homeowners insurance (which may be substantial). We do not establish an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. A set-aside account can be set up to pay taxes and insurance and may be required in some cases. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise the loan becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable when the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes or insurance payments, or does not otherwise comply with the loan terms.

By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSPORTS WRITERSophie Shepherds archery adventures have taken her across the nation in 2018. The Venice High School junior has been participating in recurve cadet female events on the national circuit. The 16-year-old recently returned from the Junior Olympic Archery Development National Target Championships in Raleigh, North Carolina. The July 11-15 event featured an of“cial practice the “rst day, shooting and ranking the second and third days of the event, elimination matches the fourth and team rounds the “fth and “nal day of the competition, she said. Shepherds was ranked 10th in the recurve cadet female division. She was eliminated in the round before the quarter“nals, losing to the eventual winner. The team competition featured matches of three against three. She said event organizers tried to create teams featuring one archer with a higher rank, another in the middle and one with a lower ranking, in an attempt to form evenly balanced teams. Shepherd was paired with gals from California and Oklahoma, and they were eliminated in their second match, she said. Earlier this year she won the recurve cadet female at this years Arizona Cup, a national circuit event she had attended the previous year. She said she received a trophy. I wasnt going out there expecting to win the competition,Ž she said. I went out there and did my best.Ž She has a different coach because her previous coach relocated. She has been training with Robert Regojo, coach and programs coordinator at the EastonNewberry Archery Center. A member of the Lekatchka Archers, Shepherd practices routinely, developing her skill set by training between 90 minutes to two hours a day, six days a week. She has been working on her setup, including getting her shoulders in line at the end of the process. Shepherds focus has been on doing her best instead of trying to “nish in a certain position. Im more consistent,Ž she said. My scores are slowly improving.Ž Shepherd will compete in this months Buckeye Classic in Ohio, her “rst appearance in that event. Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at jdanddoc@gmail.com.Right on target, Shepherd sharpens aim By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORThe Charlotte High School Fighting Tarpons, commitment to excellence continues with a busy fall sports schedule. Football, swimming and diving, cross-country, golf and volleyball have their place on the slate. The varsity volleyball team will be in action Wednesday in the ODA Preseason Classic. Our volleyball program has won two district titles in the past three years,Ž said Brian Nolan, Charlotte High School athletic director. Were a senior-laden team, with seven seniors. Coach (Michelle) Dill said, were going to make a really strong push toward the district championship.Ž The Lady Fighting Tarpons will have their hands full with a familiar district opponent, the much anticipated rivalry with the Port Charlotte Lady Pirates, an encounter that featured a number of close contests in 2017, with the Pirates taking the season series. However, the Lady Fighting Tarpons are poised for a playoff push. Theres no rest for the weary as the athletes composing the Tarpons roster were part of the Flying Fish program in the offseason, keeping themselves focused and mentally sharp in preparation for the fall, said Nolan. Im tremendously satis“ed,Ž said Nolan. They put in a lot of work in the offseason for this to happen.Ž The boys and girls swimming and diving team, much like their volleyball counterpart, train year-round. The preponderance of the rosters are composed of those who came out of the Blue Fins swimming program, working with virtually the same coaching staff that has been part of their life year-round, placing an emphasis on directing their energies toward de“ned objectives. Their season opens Aug. 29 against North Port at the South Country Rec Center at 5 p.m. We have a talented group of seniors (on the boys team), Dylan Hacker, Casey Keller, John Eisen, and Josh Eaton and a good incoming freshman in James Rose,Ž said Charlotte Fighting Tarpons swim coach Jeff Cain. The girls are a larger team. Theyll be pretty deep, but again we have to work on the underneath talent and bring it up.Ž The boys and girls swimming and diving team will also be the host for a mini invitational starting at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 1. The Fighting Tarpons will face Barron Collier, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, North Fort Myers and Northeast. Its a variety of teams that are in our region,Ž said Cain. Its a good way to start the season. Were small (in numbers), young and talented, but we have a lot of work to do yet.Ž Fall is synonymous with football, and the Fighting Tarpons are under the leadership of veteran head coach Binky Waldrop, whos been with the program for nearly a quarter of a century. Charlotte will meet Mariner at home, Friday at 7:30, and will kick off the regular season with a home opener against Dunbar on Aug. 24. The girls and boys golf teams will also be in action. The girls team starts their season on Aug. 20th at home at 3:30 p.m. vs. Braden River High School. The boys team will open at home against Venice at 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 22. The cross country teams will have a busy season facing a series of worthy adversaries, starting with the Lehigh Lightning Invitational on Aug. 25.Fighting Tarpons boast full fall schedule SUN PHOTO TOM ONEILLThe Charlotte Tarpons football team practices Wednesday, August 8, at Charlotte High School.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHERSee page 8 Monday, August 13, 2018 By MARCIA DUNNAP AEROSPACE WRITERCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. „ Embarking on a mission that scientists have been dreaming of since the Sputnik era, a NASA spacecraft hurtled Sunday toward the sun on a quest to unlock some of its mysteries by getting closer than any object sent before. If all goes well, the Parker Solar Probe will ” y straight through the wispy edges of the suns corona, or outer atmosphere, in November. In the years ahead, it will gradually get within 3.8 million miles of the surface, its instruments protected from the extreme heat and radiation by a revolutionary new carbon heat shield and other high-tech wizardry. Altogether, the Parker probe will make 24 close approaches to our star during the seven-year, $1.5 billion journey. Wow, here we go. Were in for some learning over the next several years,Ž said Eugene Parker, the 91-year-old astrophysicist for whom the spacecraft is named. It was Parker who accurately theorized 60 years ago the existence of solar wind „ the supersonic stream of charged particles blasting off the sun and coursing through space, sometimes wreaking havoc on electrical systems on Earth. This is the “ rst time NASA has named a spacecraft after a living person. As Parker and thousands of others watched, a Delta IV Heavy rocket carried the probe aloft, thundering into the clear, star-studded sky on three pillars of “ re that lit up the middle-of-the-night darkness. NASA needed the mighty 23-story rocket, plus a third stage, to get the Parker probe „ the size of a small car and well under a ton „ racing toward the sun, 93 million miles from Earth. A Saturday morning launch attempt was foiled by last-minute technical trouble. But Sunday gave way to complete success. It was the “ rst rocket launch ever witnessed by Parker, a retired University of Chicago professor. He said it was like looking at photos of the Taj Mahal for years and then beholding the real thing in India. I really have to turn from biting my nails in getting it launched, to thinking about all the interesting things which I dont know yet and which will be made clear, I assume, over the next “ ve or six or seven years,Ž Parker said on NASA TV. Among the mysteries scientists hope to solve: Why is the corona hundreds of times hotter than the surface, which is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit? And why is the suns atmosphere continually expanding and accelerating, as Parker theorized in 1958? The only way we can do that is to “ nally go up and touch the sun,Ž said project scientist Nicola Fox of Johns Hopkins University. Weve looked at it. Weve studied it from missions that are close in, even as close as the planet Mercury. But we have to go there.Ž A better understanding of the suns life-giving and sometimes violent nature could also enable earthlings to better protect satellites and astronauts in orbit, along with the Touch the sun: NASA spacecraft hurtles toward our star NASA VIA APIn this photo provided by NASA, The United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket launches NASAs Parker Solar Probe to touch the Sun, Sunday from Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

By GENE JOHNSONASSOCIATED PRESSSEATTLE „ He cracked jokes, complimented the professional demeanor of an air traf“ c controller and apologized for making a fuss. But the friendly tone of a 29-year-old airport worker who stole a commercial plane Friday night, performing acrobatic stunts before the fatal plunge into a thick island forest, belied his desperate actions. I think Im going to try to do a barrel roll, and if that goes good Ill go nose down and call it a night,Ž Richard Russell said from the cockpit, according to a recording of his conversation with the controller. The Pierce County Medical Examiners Of“ ce con“ rmed Sunday that Russell had died in the “ ery wreckage, but whether the crash was deliberate or accidental was one of several topics remaining for investigators. Others include how, nearly 17 years after the 9/11 attack, someone can simply take a passenger plane from a major U.S. airport without authorization.

The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging threeterm Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson; several congressional seats will be competitive; and Floridians will vote on 13 proposed constitutional amendments, ranging from property tax cuts to banning greyhound racing. The following are items of political interest from the past week:Party chairman bemoans bitter primaryTheres someone who is fed up with the barrage of negative television ads and campaigning so far this year: The head of the Republican Party of Florida. Blaise Ingoglia took to Twitter this week to say that Im really disappointed in all the negative campaigning going on between Republicans in the primary this year. We are better than this.Ž In a second tweet, Ingoglia added lets not help our opposition tomorrow by helping to destroy ourselves today.Ž Ingoglias plea came one day after a rancorous debate that witnessed the two GOP candidates for governor trade sharp blows with each other. U.S. Ron DeSantis accused Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam of lying, while Putnam maintained DeSantis was unquali“ed and ignorant about the demands of the job.As (already) seen on TVIt didnt take long for DeSantis to turn his appearance at a rally with President Donald Trump into a TV commercial. DeSantis released an ad this week that was entirely footage of the event. Its called Tough CookieŽ „ a reference to Trump introducing him at the Tampa event as a tough, brilliant cookie.Ž It ends with DeSantis pointing at the crowd as the words CONSERVATIVE WARRIORŽ appear on the screen and Trumps voice saying, Everybody needs to support Ron DeSantis.ŽAnd not so TrumpRepublican U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo is being targeted by Democrats in a Miami-area district that supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. So his message is a little bit different than most Republicans around Florida. Curbelo released a 15-second video ad that begins, We have to work across the aisle to get big things done in Washington, D.C. So I will never apologize for reaching across the aisle and working with all of my colleagues.ŽGotta have faithDemocratic candidate for governor Chris King told a Tiger Bay Club in St. Petersburg spoke of a highly weaponized strand of evangelical RepublicanismŽ and said he wants to use faith to convince the GOP to work with him to enact policy thats more in line with the teachings in the Bible. If youre wealthy and well-connected, Florida is a great place to live, but if you are not, this state can be a tough place to make a living,Ž King said. While the Bible has thousands of versus on caring for the needs of the poor, the immigrant, the sick, the least of these, I would argue that our states one-party Republican government has, in very intentional ways, made life more dif“cult, more dif“cult and more treacherous for them.Ž King said he considers it a sin not to provide health care for those who dont have it, and likewise the state isnt doing enough to provide homes for those who cant afford them. I believe that faith ... whether its coming from a mosque, or a synagogue, or a church, or another faith tradition „ in its purist and most noble form in the public square „ is about caring, serving, loving, sacri“cing for the bene“t of our neighbor,Ž he said.Stand by me? Not quiteState Rep. Julio Gonzalez is in a “erce battle with state Sen. Greg Steube in the Republican primary for U.S. House District 17, which will likely decide the congressman to replace retiring Tom Rooney. But does Gov. Rick Scott supporting Gonzalez? Gonzalez released a 30-second spot showing Scott praising Gonzalez at an event they both attended, but the event was for Scotts U.S. Senate campaign „ not an endorsement. Viewers wouldnt know it by the ad, in which an announcer says Join Governor Scott in support of pro-Trump, tax-cutting conservative Dr. Julio Gonzalez.Ž But Scotts campaign manager, Jackie Schutz, said Scott hasnt endorsed in the race.Faith and tough cookies: This week in Florida politics Candidate accused of lying about graduating, faking diplomaSARASOTA (AP) „ A candidate for the Florida Legislature is being accused of lying about graduating from college and then producing a fake diploma after a website questioned her about it. Miami University in Ohio told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that Florida House candidate Melissa Howard attended the school but never graduated. The school also says the diploma she produced doesnt match those issued in 1994 or 1996, the years she has claimed she graduated, or any year. The Republican businesswoman is running in the Aug. 28 primary. Her educational background was “rst questioned last week by the website Florida News Online. After she posted a photo of the diploma, the website brie”y took down its story and apologized, but the university then said her claim was false. We have no such record of a degree,Ž the universitys lawyer, Robin Parker, said in an email to the paper. Howards diploma says she graduated with a degree in marketing „ Parker says the university has never offered such a degree and that Howards major was retail. Also, Parker said while the university presidents signature is correct, another administrators signature would not have appeared on the diploma. Howard did not answer a call Sunday from The Associated Press. Her campaign consultant, Anthony Pedicini, told the newspaper in a text message Saturday that Howards husband had a cardiac eventŽ and that she is focused on her family „ not fake news.Ž Her campaigns Facebook page appears to have been removed.Workers find prehistoric bone in SWFLCAPE CORAL (AP) „ Construction workers in southwest Florida uncovered a mammoth or mastodon bone that could be 2 million years old. The News-Press in Fort Myers reports that workers found the upper arm bone earlier this summer while digging for a utility extension. The Florida Museum of Natural History said the bone doesnt have enough characteristics to determine if it were a mammoth or mastodon, elephant-like mammals that roamed the area starting about 2 million years ago until about 12,000 years ago.Newspaper hall of fame inducts Miami black publisherORLANDO (AP) „ The publisher of Miamis African-American newspaper during the Civil Rights era has been inducted into Florida Press Associations Newspaper Hall of Fame. Garth Reeves inherited The Miami Times from his family after serving in World War II, where the hypocrisy of “ghting for freedom while living in segregation at home angered him. The association says the Bahamian native exercised his clout to prick the conscience of other Miamians in order to bring about social justice.Ž The association says his paper provided an important perspective that other Miami newspapers often ignored.Ž The 99-year-old Reeves was unable to attend Fridays ceremony in Orlando.Girl dies after being struck by stray bulletJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ A 7-year-old Florida girl died when she was shot in the head by a stray bullet while sitting in a car with her family. Jacksonville police say Heydi Rivas Villanueva was sitting in a car with her father and a sibling Saturday night in a strip mall parking lot, awaiting her mother to get off work at a nearby restaurant. Police say two groups of men started shooting at each other nearby and a bullet struck her. The gunmen ”ed. Heydi died about three hours later at a hospital.Floridians line beaches to demand state stop water pollutionFORT MYERS (AP) „ Thousands lined Floridas beaches to demand state leaders stop future red tide outbreaks like the one killing sea life on the states Gulf Coast. Sundays Hands Along the WaterŽ events happened on the Gulf and Atlantic coasts from the St. Petersburg area to Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale. The stench on some beaches from animals killed by the current red tide outbreak caused protestors to wear breathing masks. The toxic algae bloom has overrun Floridas southern Gulf Coast this summer as thousands of dead “sh, hundreds of sea turtles, some dolphins and even a whale shark have washed ashore. There is debate over whether pollution worsened the outbreak. The state is also dealing with freshwater algae outbreak that is clogging canals connected to Lake Okeechobee. Its caused by fertilizer runoff. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATESTATE NEWS

The explosion took place inside an ammunition depot housed in a residential building in the town of Sarmada in the northwestern province of Idlib, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The blast caused the multistory building to collapse, local activists said. A civil defense volunteer in Idlib put the death toll at over 50. He said at least 70 others were injured. Idlib is largely controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an Islamist alliance led by an alQaida-linked group. In the past three years, thousands of rebels and their families have been moved from different parts of war-torn Syria to Idlib under agreements with the government.Wildfire forces Greek villages on island of Evia to evacuateATHENS, Greece (AP) „ Greeces fire service says a wildfire raging on the island of Evia, in central Greece, has forced them to evacuate two villages and a monastery. No casualties have been reported so far. Traffic on the main road that runs across the length of the 110-mile island has been stopped near the fire, police say. They urge people wishing to drive to Athens from northern Evia to use ferries to the mainland, which will operate throughout the night. Normally, drivers would cross a bridge at the narrowest point separating Evia from the mainland, which is south of the fires location. Greeces most devastating wild“re, at a seaside resort east of Athens on July 23, killed 94 people, with several more hospitalized in serious condition.Gas explosion in Pakistan coal mine kills 4, traps 13QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) „ Police in Pakistan say a methane gas explosion in a coal mine has killed at least four miners and trapped 13 others. Local police official Wajeet Khan says the blast happened Sunday in the village of Sanjdi, about 30 miles east of Quetta. He says rescuers have retrieved four bodies and that 13 other miners are missing and feared dead, with rescue operations hindered by the gas leak. Cave-ins and other mining accidents in Pakistan are often attributed to the poor enforcement of safety regulations.Kenya president urges citizens to arrest the corruptNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) „ Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is urging the nations young people to make citizens arrests of those suspected of corruption, a vice that is endemic in the country. Critics have called Kenyattas regime the most corrupt of the four leaders that Kenya has had since gaining independence from Britain in 1963. Kenyatta is in his second term after a disputed re-election victory last year and his administration has made a flurry of arrests of officials named in corruption scandals in recent weeks. The president said Sunday in the western Kenya town of Kisii during festivities to mark world youth day that young people should not be afraid to arrest the powerful. In his words, The power is in your hands to end this vice in this country.Ž HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD SAN ANTONIO (AP) „ The wife of the man who opened “re at a Texas church last November killing more than two dozen people before killing himself, says he tied her to their bed before leaving for the shooting. In a series of interviews with the San Antonio Express-News, Danielle Kelley said her husband, Devin Kelley, behaved strangely detached that morning until he put their 2-year-old son in the bedroom and forced her into the bedroom, where he bound her to the bed using rope, handcuffs and tape as their son cried. She said Devin told her he loved her, kissed their 5-month-old daughter in her crib and told their son, Ill be right back.Ž He grabbed his ri”e and two handguns, donned military-style tactical gear and body armor, then left. Devin Kelley then went to First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and killed 25 people, more than half of whom were children. Authorities put the of“cial death toll at 26 because one of the victims was pregnant. Her adoptive mother, Michelle Shields, has said her son-in-law was controlling and abusive to her daughter, who often accepted the abuse. Danielle and Devin met when she was 13 and he was 17. Both came from unstable backgrounds. Danielle said her biological parents had abused her before Child Protective Services removed her and Michelle Shields adopted her as a 4-year-old. After he joined the Air Force and married another woman, they corresponded through letters. He was court-martialed for fracturing his stepsons skull, served time behind bars, was kicked out of the military and divorced. Devin and Danielle married in April 2014, when he was 23 and she was 19. In April 2016, he bought an assault-style ri”e and gathered more than a dozen magazines capable of holding 30 rounds of ammunition each. He grew more reclusive. When she persuaded him to attend church services, including at First Baptist, he would laugh during sermons. Devin was sick. He lost who he was. Because the real Devin wouldve never hurt babies. He was a family person. He would never have hurt anybody. He lost touch of reality,Ž Danielle said. After the shooting, he called his parents and told them to go to his house. He later frantically phoned Danielle, who put the call on speakerphone for his parents, who had untied her. I just shot up the Sutherland Springs church,Ž he said. They pleaded with him to stop. He was like I cant. Ive killed so many people „ so, so many people,Ž Danielle said. He kept saying how sorry he was.Ž He told them he wasnt going to make it home, that he loved them. They told him the same. Then the call ended.Church gunmans wife says he bound her to bed before deathsAt least 27 rescued after flash flood hits West Texas parkUVALDE, Texas (AP) „ At least 27 people have been rescued after 8 to 9 inches of rain caused ”ash ”ooding in the Nueces River at a park west of San Antonio. The Uvalde County Sheriffs Of“ce says on its social media that the 27 were rescued from high water Sunday at Chalk Bluff Park, about 15 miles northwest of Uvalde, Texas. Helicopters were used to drop life jackets to those stranded by the rising waters before their rescues. No serious injuries were reported. The National Weather Service reports the 8 to 9 inches of rain fell over a three-hour period Sunday morning in the vicinity of the park, about 90 miles west of San Antonio.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: Please explain convertible bonds. Were in our late 50s. We are not aggressive investors and own a $310,000 portfolio of stocks „ mostly utilities and other income stocks „ yielding 3 to 9 percent. A stockbroker tried to explain convertible bonds to us, but she just made it more confusing. Could you give us a simple explanation so we can have a clearer understanding? And could you recommend some convertible mutual funds to buy? We have about $21,000 to invest. „ PB, Waterloo, Iowa Dear PB: Convertible bond investments can be made to appear as complicated as differential equations or as simple as Simon. Sadly, the supposed experts enjoy complicating this subject by using recursive brute force and dynamic programming algorithms to explain how to choose attractive convertible bonds. So Ill just give you the Readers Digest version. It can be said of convertible bonds that they capture the best of both worlds. They have the safety and income of a plain vanilla corporate bond plus the upside potential of a common stock. Just like regular bonds, CBs are “xed-income investments and pay interest to investors twice a year. But unlike the case with regular bonds, as the underlying stock price increases, so does the market value of the CB. And unlike regular bonds, a CB gives an investor the option to convert his bond into common stock. Unlike common stock, a CB is not worthless if a company declares bankruptcy. CBs can only fall so far because all bonds have prior claims on assets. Another reason is that a CB has a maturity date, at which time the company is obligated to return the par value to each CB holder. Heres how it buries. Assume that Associated Bagel & Matzo issues a convertible bond at $1,000 with interest at 5 percent and that it will mature in November 2038. Then assume that the indenture on the ABM bond declares that the bond can be converted into 25 shares of common stock, which doesnt pay a dividend, any time between now and maturity in 2038. The conversion and break-even price ($1,000 divided by 25) is $40 a share. Assume youve owned a 5 percent $1,000 ABM CB for “ve years. Because it pays $50 interest annually, youve earned $250. Now assume that scientists have discovered that matzo and bagels cure cancer. Resultantly, ABM stock zooms above the $40 conversion price to $75, and the CB, because it converts to 25 shares, zooms to $1,875. Now you have various options. 1) You could tell the broker to convert your bond into 25 shares of stock worth $1,875. There would be no charge for the conversion, though some cheapskate brokerages might demand a conversion fee of $50 to $150. And though youd have a gain of $875 on your $1,000 ABM CB, there would be no tax on this conversion until you sold the stock. 2) Rather than convert, you could sell the ABM CB at $1,875 and make an $875 pro“t. 3) You could continue holding the CB to maturity, knowing it pays $50 interest annually because the stock pays no dividend. Some professionals believe that CBs give good balance and diversity to a long-term growth portfolio. There would be comfort in knowing that each time ABM stock rises $1, the CB would increase by $25. However, on the ”ip side, each $1 decline in ABM stock would reduce the CBs value by $25. Id recommend the following exchange-traded funds: The SPDR Bloomberg Barclays Convertible Securities ETF (CWB-$53.78) has $4.7 billion in assets, and the dividend yields 3.9 percent. The iShares Convertible Bond ETF (ICVT-$59.15) has $200 million in assets, and the dividend yields 2.2 percent. And the First Trust SSI Strategic Convertible Securities ETF (FCVT-$30.40) has $161 million in assets and a 2.2 percent dividend. Or you could invest in individual convertibles by Wells Fargo, Intel, Bank of America and Herbalife. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O.

Harley-Davidson drew Trumps wrath in June after the manufacturer announced it is moving production of motorcycles sold in Europe to facilities outside the U.S. The company blames the decision on tariffs imposed by the European Union to retaliate for tariffs Trump imposed on a host of EU products. On Sunday Trump tweeted that manyŽ Harley-Davidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. That followed Trumps meeting on Saturday with about 180 bikers who are part of a Bikers for TrumpŽ fan group at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson declined to comment. In July, Harley-Davidson said it expects new tariffs to cost the company as much as $100 million annually.Trump tweets about Harley-Davidson boycott death was, he could have in”icted vastly more damage had he been so inclined. Potential targets included tens of thousands of fans assembling at Safeco Field, about 12 miles away, for a sold-out Pearl Jam concert just as he took off. Last nights event is going to push us to learn what we can from this tragedy so that we can ensure this does not happen again at Alaska Air Group or at any other airline,Ž Brad Tilden, CEO of Alaska Airlines, told a news conference Saturday. The plane was a Bombardier Q400, a turboprop that seats 76 people, owned by Horizon Air, part of Alaska Airlines. It had been parked at a cargo and maintenance area for the night after arriving from Victoria, British Columbia, earlier in the day. Russell, a 3 1/2-year Horizon employee, worked as a ground service agent. His responsibilities included towing and pushing aircraft for takeoff and gate approach, de-icing them, and handling baggage. Authorities said he used a tractor to rotate the plane 180 degrees, positioning it so that he could taxi toward a runway. They said its not clear whether he had ever taken ”ight lessons or used ”ight simulators, or where he gained the skills to take off. The plane didnt require a key, but it did require buttons and switches to be activated in a particular order. His 75-minute ”ight during the golden twilight took him south and west, toward the Olympic Mountains. As a ”ight controller tried to persuade him to land, he wondered aloud about whether he had enough fuel to make it to the Olympics, talked of the beautiful view, and said he had a lot of people who cared about him, apologizing for what he was doing. He complimented the controller: You are very calm, collect, poised,Ž he said. He said ”ying was a blastŽ and that he didnt need much help: Ive played some video games before.Ž You think if I land this successfully Alaska will give me a job as a pilot?Ž he joked. He also told the controller he wasnt really planning on landingŽ the aircraft, and he described himself as just a broken guy.Ž Authorities sent “ghter jets to escort him, and the controller repeatedly tried to direct him to runways. But the plane slammed into tiny Ketron Island, a sparsely populated island southwest of Tacoma. Russell went by BeeboŽ on social media. On his Facebook page, which had limited public access, he said he was from Wasilla, Alaska; lived in Sumner, Washington; and was married in 2012. In a humorous YouTube video he posted last year, he talked about his job and included videos and photos of his travels. I lift a lot of bags. Like a lot of bags. So many bags,Ž he said. Russells family said in a statement that they were stunned and heartbroken. They said its clear Russell didnt intend to harm anyone, and he was right in saying that there are so many people who loved him.ŽPLANEFROM PAGE 1the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The weather out here in California seems to be cooling down today and over the next couple days, and that should hopefully help “re“ghters get even more containment,Ž Tolmachoff said. They should make better progress over the next couple of days.Ž Theyll need to, with temperatures, expected to again reach 100 degrees or more by the end of the week. The Holy Fire „ named for Holy Jim Canyon, where it began last Monday „ is one of nearly 20 blazes burning across California as the state sees earlier, longer and more destructive wild“re seasons because of drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change and home construction deeper into forests. With “re“ghters beginning to get a better handle on the blaze, they began to lift evacuation orders over the weekend for areas previously in its path, said Tolmachoff, who did not have exact numbers. More than 20,000 people were reportedly told to evacuate at one point. Aircraft have made ”ight after ”ight, dumping water and bright pink retardant on the blaze to protect Lake Elsinore and other foothill communities near the ”ames. The man accused of deliberately starting the “re appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed. Forrest Clark, 51, made several outbursts, claiming his life was being threatened and saying the arson charge against him was a lie. A court commissioner ordered his bail to remain at $1 million. Elsewhere, the largest “re ever recorded in California „ the Mendocino Complex „ burning north of Sacramento destroyed more than 100 homes. It was nearly 70 percent contained Saturday. Updated containment “gures were not immediately available on Sunday. On Saturday it had covered 508 square miles. The two-week-old Carr Fire that killed eight people and burned more than 1,000 homes was more than 50 percent contained on Saturday.WILDFIREFROM PAGE 1 North Slope was in 1995 at magnitude 5.2, West told the newspaper. The jump from a 5.2 to Sundays 6.4 is signi“cant because earthquakes rapidly grow in strength as magnitude rises, he said. Thats why at 6.4 this changes how we think about the region,Ž West said. Its a little early to say how, but its safe to say this earthquake will cause a re-evaluation of the seismic potential of that area.Ž The magnitude 6.5 earthquake was felt by workers at the oilproduction facilities in and around Prudhoe Bay, the News reported. The newspaper says that Alyeska Pipeline said the earthquake did not damage the trans-Alaska pipeline. The company says in a tweet that there are no operational concernsŽ related to the earthquake, but the pipeline will be inspected. At 7:14 a.m., a magnitude 5.1 earthquake hit another area in northern Alaska. The USGS says the earthquake hit a spot about 340 miles northeast of Fairbanks. Several aftershocks were reported across northern Alaska. The Alaska Earthquake Center says the earthquakes were felt across the eastern part of the states North Slope Borough and as far south as metro Fairbanks. The center adds that there are no reports of damage.EARTHQUAKEFROM PAGE 1FROM PAGE ONE

The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My daughter is 4 years old and has, in the past ve days, developed measles. She was vaccinated at 9 months and has been treated with antibiotics, Tylenol and vitamin A supplements. What concerns me is that she is now experiencing seizures, even without a fever. They are not grand mal seizures, but simple ones. They have me worried. What can I do? „ G.A. ANSWER: Measles remains a serious disease in many parts of the world, with 90,000 deaths reported in 2016. Even in industrialized nations, there have been outbreaks involving tens of thousands of people infected. Vitamin A supplementation may be of value in those who are decient, and Tylenol can help keep the fever down, reducing the risk of febrile seizures. Otherwise, there are no eective antibiotics or other treatments for measles. When seizures occur in a child with measles in absence of fever, it can indicate a complication called encephalitis „ inammation of the brain. Children also may experience nausea and vomiting, and they usually have a headache. Confusion and sleepiness are other common symptoms. The diagnosis can be conrmed by an evaluation of the uid around the brain, the cerebrospinal uid, which is sampled via a needle inserted into the lower back. Conrmed encephalitis with measles is treated with steroids. This reduces the risk of permanent brain damage from the infection. Unfortunately, vaccination at 9 months is not adequate protection. Children's immune systems may not be able to fully respond to the vaccine so early. Children are recommended to have the measles vaccine at 12-15 months and again at 4 to 6 years in the United States. In countries where risk of measles mortality remains high, children are vaccinated at 9 months, then again at 15-18 months. During an outbreak, a dose may be given as early as 6 months old, in addition to the other two doses. DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently was diagnosed with kidney disease and was advised to drink eight glasses of water daily. I can only get down three glasses. Is it OK to drink tea instead? Would vitamins help? „ E.K. ANSWER: From the standpoint of your kidneys, tea and coee count as water. Having adequate uid intake is important for your kidneys, but most people who aren't exercising or living in hot or dry environments don't need eight full glasses a day. Vitamins are not necessary for kidney health; however, people with advanced kidney disease often need a special form of vitamin D called calcitriol. DEAR DR. ROACH: I receive literature in the mail about a new miracle cure for enlarged prostate. The ads state that the new pills shrink the prostate back to normal. Is there such a pill, or is this a scam? I am afraid it is pills lled with drywall dust. „ B.F. ANSWER: I'm afraid it's more likely to be a scam than real, but there are a few herbal therapies that have been shown to help „ but not cure „ enlarged prostate glands in men. Saw palmetto is well-known, but most recently was found to be no better than placebo. Betasitosterol, cernilton and Pygeum africanum all are plant extracts with some evidence of benet, at least when it comes to symptoms. You are quite correct that without independent laboratory verication, there is no way to be sure of the quality and purity of dietary supplements. They are not regulated the way prescription drugs (or even foods) are.DEAR ABBY: I have been dating "James" for almost a year. Things have been rough for him recently. The problem is James' mother. She's well meaning, and she has always been incredibly sweet to me, but she has started texting and questioning me about how I am doing, regarding her son and the "trials" he brings to our relationship. Perhaps she asks out of concern for me, but it seems like she's trying to speak on his behalf or defend him somehow, which makes me feel awful. How can I explain to her that something which is meant to be as simple as "Are you doing OK?" is hurting me? „ Twisted Up DEAR TWISTED UP: Because you are uncomfortable with the way these conversations are going, respond that you are ne and ask her how SHE is doing. You do not have to engage in conversations with anyone who makes you uncomfortable, and if someone ventures into sensitive territory, you have every right to say you prefer not to discuss it and change the subject. DEAR ABBY: My husband is still working, although he will retire in a few years. We have been in our home since 1987. Our grandkids live four hours away, and we are thinking about moving near them. We have looked at "over55" communities, and the yards are small and treeless. I love my trees „ especially the magnolia my husband and sons planted many years ago. I also adore seeing all the birds and wildlife. How do other relocators handle the move? „ Getting Ready In Georgia DEAR GETTING READY: If what you will miss the most about your home is the trees, perhaps the over-55 communities in the area to which you are relocating are not for you. Take some time, talk with a real estate agent. However, if an over-55 community is a must, perhaps you can nd one that's near a park where you can go and enjoy the trees and wildlife. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF concerns the downside of having a beachfront house: "Dear Heloise: Summer is drawing to a close „ thank heavens! My husband and I have a beach house, which we thoroughly enjoy. We bought it so my husband of 48 years could recover from a serious heart attack. What we don't enjoy are drop-in visits from people who think that they're staying the week or weekend. So, to people who feel free to drop in, please wait to be invited. This is a home, not a hotel. Show some respect for our privacy." „ A Reader in California Dear Heloise: I love growing tomatoes, but in my tiny yard, there's no room anymore. Any ideas? „ Barb O., Middlesboro, Ky. Barb, you can always grow cherry tomatoes in a hanging basket, or the larger varieties in a pot with a tomato cage. „ HeloiseMeasles vaccination schedule for kids has multiple doses Girlfriend questions texts from boyfriend's mother Rules of the beach houseHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

One great thing about the past is that it got you here. Another great thing about it is that the bad parts are over. So bless it and leave it back there, where it belongs. Better days are ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To realize our full potential, our ego needs to shrink, not grow. The desire to feel special is understandable, yet no one should have to feel superior in order to feel worthy of respect and love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take a warm and understanding approach to yourself. Your suering wont lessen if youre hard on yourself. You wont overcome perceived shortcomings by merely demanding it. Try self-compassion instead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Accept yourself with an open heart. The constant need to assess how youre measuring up is exhausting and benets no one. Drop it and enjoy the sense of wholeness and oneness with others that follows. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The correctness of an action may be dicult to discern right now, as there are many facets to consider. Think in terms of doing whats helpful and whats useful instead of merely whats correct. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 13). Interesting meetups, family connections and professional alliances are part of the excellent social luck that visits you over the next 10 weeks. A change in what you oer the world will show you making a dream come true in November and making an important deal in June. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 28, 44, 3 and 19.

An AmericanChinese co-production between Warner Bros. and Chinas Gravity Pictures, it also debuted well overseas, taking in $50.3 million in China and totaling $96.8 million internationally, according to studio estimates Sunday. With an international cast led by Jason Statham and featuring Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson and Winston Chao, The MegŽ cost at least $130 million to make. Following hits like The ShallowsŽ and 47 Meters Down,Ž the shark movie „ 43 years after Steven Spielbergs JawsŽ „ has been showing surprising bite at the box of“ ce. Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief for Warner Bros., said late summer was ideal timing for The Meg.Ž This was a fun, dumb popcorn movie that just looked interesting to the public everywhere around the world,Ž Goldstein said. We dug our heels in and said: This is the right time to go.

Were in a space by ourselves.Ž Traditionally a sleepy time at the box of“ ce, August has helped cement a comeback summer for the movie business.

For Warner Bros., which on Wednesday will release the highly touted Crazy Rich Asians,Ž The MegŽ is the studios best opening this year, besting even Spielbergs own Ready Player One.Ž After two weeks at No. 1, Mission: Impossible „ FalloutŽ slid to second place in its third weekend with $20 million. The Paramount Pictures release starring Tom Cruise has pulled in $162 million in three weeks. Lees critically acclaimed BlacKkKlansmanŽ also opened strongly with $10.8 million in 1,512 theaters. The Focus Features release, which took the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in May, was timed to the anniversary of the violent clashes between white nationalists and anti-racism counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. Lees “ lm, produced by Jordan Peele (Get OutŽ), is a true-life tale of AfricanAmerican police detective Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington, son of Denzel), who in 1979 in“ ltrated a Colorado Springs, Colorado, cell of the Ku Klux Klan. The anniversary of Charlottesville was something that was very key to Spike,Ž said Lisa Bunnell, Focus president of distribution. Its obviously a very emotional “ lm that re” ects the times. When audiences respond to that, its what cinema is all about. The state of the country is such that were all feeling really con” icted and alone. This movie is a call to action, and a movie that brings people together.Ž Its Lees best debut since 2006s Inside Man.Ž Sony Screen Gems PG-13rated Slender ManŽ didnt catch on the way some horror releases have this year.

But with a $10 million budget, the tale of an internet-famous boogeyman has a quick path to pro“ tability for Sony.

By Matt BakerTamba Bay TimesGAINESVILLE „ The Florida Gators continued preseason camp Saturday with two and a half hours of practice that were fully open to the media. A few observations: Running back Malik Davis (Jesuit High) looks fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered against Georgia. Hillsborough Countys all-time leading rusher moved well, cut well and had no problem absorbing hits. Davis was second on the team with 526 rushing yards last year, despite only playing in seven games. It looks as if hell be part of a running back corps thats one of the Gators strengths. Cornerback depth looks like a concern. UF was down to four scholarship cornerbacks Saturday. That doesnt leave much wiggle room in case of injury or other attrition. The lack of depth there made it a little hard to evaluate quarterbacks „ did the quarterback make a great throw to help get a receiver open, or was the coverage lacking? Feleipe Franks seemed sharper than Kyle Trask, who struggled early while wearing a glove on his throwing hand. He removed the glove later in practice. UFs top two receivers remain the two transfers, Van Jefferson (Ole Miss) and Trevon Grimes (Ohio State). The Gators havent yet announced whether Jefferson has been granted a waiver for immediate eligibility by the SEC (although both have been cleared by the NCAA). Assuming Jefferson can play, hell be a big target for Franks/Trask. This isnt new, but its still interesting to see T.J. McCoy working as the third-string center after starting nine games there last year. Redshirt junior Nick Buchanan has been working with the starters at that position; he appeared in three games over his first three seasons.By Greg AumanTamba Bay TimesBucs fans who stayed to the very end of Saturdays practice might have been disappointed to see a long field goal attempt by Chandler Catanzaro come up short. That was by design. The Bucs had receiver Adam Humphries parked in the back of the end zone, ready to return a miss on a long field goal. Its another case of Bucs coach Dirk Koetter taking time to practice every possible scenario his team might face during a game, so theyre better prepared when it actually happens. As we know from the college game, that could be a season-changing play,Ž Koetter said, referencing the famous Kick SixŽ play in the 2013 Alabama-Auburn game, where Chris Davis returned a missed field goal 109 yards with no time remaining to give the Tigers an incredible win. Thats just one of the many things that youve got to cover in training camp.Ž In this case, Koetter was making sure his field-goal unit got work on covering such a rare return. He said a situation like the Bucs late 53-yard field goal Thursday, in a normal game, would have the Bucs place a player in the end zone in a regular-season situation if the opponent were kicking. You may have forgotten, but the Bucs and Humphries have realgame experience in such a scenario.

EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS: TRACK & FIELDDuplantis sets U20 record at Euros; 3rd gold for Asher-Smith By STEPHEN WADEAssociated PressTOKYO „ Theyve added a new swimming event to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics „ the 1,500 meter freestyle „ and Katie Ledecky plans to be racing it. This could pose a problem, even for the five-time Olympic champion and 14-time world champion. She won the 200, 400, and 800 two years ago in Rio de Janeiro. Now add to that the 1,500. So is Ledecky planning to perhaps drop the 200, maybe her weakest race, and focus on the longer distances? She lost the 200 a few days ago in the Pan Pacific Championships, her only blemish on a strong showing this week in the Japanese capital. I dont anticipate trying to drop any of them,Ž she said Sunday after winning the 1,500 at the Pan Pacs on the final day of the four-day meet. The meet serves as a dress rehearsal for the Olympics in two years and is the biggest meet of the year for swimmers from the Pacific region. It was held at the Tatsumi swimming center, which is only a five-minute walk from the new Olympic aquatic center under construction. It should be completed early in 2020. Certainly Ledecky wont drop the 1,500. Her time of 15 minutes, 38.97 seconds, was the 10th fastest in history. She now owns nine of the top 10 times in that event „ and the world record. Its something that makes training really challenging and exciting for me to compete in the shorter races,Ž she said. So I have no plans of dropping anything. Plans could change, but I think I still have a lot in me.Ž As a trial for Tokyo, Ledecky is likely to swim all four next year in the world championships in South Korea. I think Im very experienced swimming those events,Ž she said. I think I know how to manage my races and manage my energy.Ž The United States was overpowering in the pool at the Pan Pacs „ especially on the final day. The meet wraps up Tuesday with the outdoor distance events. The Americans won 18 gold medals, ahead of Australia with eight and Japan with six. The Americans also led the overall medal table with 43. China, the Pacifics other swim power, largel y skipped the meet to focus on the Asian Games, which open in a few days in Jakarta, Indonesia. The meet was extra important for American Ryan Murphy. He took the 200 backstroke in 1:53.57, edging Japanese Ryosuke Irie in 1:55.12 and American Austin Katz in 1:56.00. Murphy also won the 100 backstroke earlier in the meet. It was nice to be in Tokyo, and I really wanted to have a good meet here,Ž Murphy said. You know, Im a little superstitious. Hopefully this bodes well for me leading into 2020. Swimming well in a pool here, I think I can swim well in a pool thats two blocks away.Ž SWIMMING: PAN PACIFIC CHAMPIONSHIPSLedecky to tackle all 4 distances in TokyoMLB: BLUE JAYS 2, RAYS 1Another strong Tyler Glasnow start, but Rays fall to Blue JaysBy KEEGAN MATHESONTampa Bay TimesTORONTO „ The Rays might just be on to something with Tyler Glasnow. In his third start since coming over from Pittsburgh in the Chris Archer deal, the towering right-hander pitched five strong innings to continue his strong debut with the Rays, who fell 2-1 to the Blue Jays on Sunday in yet another one-run game but still leave town with a series win. Glasnows standout moment of the game came in the bottom of the fourth with a runner on third base and one out. The Rays shifted their infield to the left and pinched it in with Randal Grichuk at the plate, but Glasnow managed to handle it himself. Grichuk chased a breaking ball for strike two, then struck out on another breaking ball that was buried in the dirt. Glasnow ended the inning with a swinging strikeout of Teoscar Hernandez when he reached back for a 98.7 mph fastball on the outside edge. Glasnow let his emotions break through with that final strike, too, as he skipped off the mound with an audible slap of his glove. Kevin Cash gave Glasnow the opportunity to go out for the bottom of the sixth but quickly went to the bullpen after Glasnow walked the leadoff batter. Jose Alvarado allowed a double to pinch-hitter Kevin Pillar, and both runs eventually came home to put the Blue Jays out in front. Torontos second run of the inning came on a bangbang play at the plate involving reliever Ryne Stanek. With runners on the corners at that point, Grichuk hit a slow roller 10 feet in front of home plate. The moment that Michael Perez threw to first to get Grichuk, Kevin Pillar broke home from third and narrowly beat Staneks tag with a head-first slide. Over his five-plus innings of work, Glasnow was charged with that one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out out six. He has had starts of three, four and five innings since joining the Rays, so Glasnow should be close to taking on a full starters workload in his next outing. After struggling with control issues in the majors and minors, Glasnow did well to stay around the zone again with 48 strikes on 79 pitches. He has issued just three walks over 12 innings with the Rays. Ryan Yarbrough finished the game for Tampa Bay with two innings of scoreless relief, where he allowed one hit and struck out one. Yarbrough was working on extra rest, too, since his last outing came Aug. 5 against the White Sox. Willy Adames put the Rays on the board in the top half of the fourth inning on a fullcount single off Marcus Stroman. Joey Wendle had singled to lead off the inning, then advanced a base on ground outs from Ji-Man Choi an d Kiermaier. Adames ripped the sixth pitch he saw just past the glove of diving Aledmys Diaz at shortstop for the RBI. The closest the Rays came after that was in the top of the seventh, with runners on the corners and two outs. Mallex Smith sliced a ball down the leftfield line than fell just inches foul, but he grounded out to second base on the next pitch he saw to end the inning.

By DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressBALTIMORE „ The attorney for the family of the University of Maryland offensive lineman who died after a strenuous offseason workout is calling for Terrapins football coach DJ Durkin to be fired, citing the abusive culture of the program and the teams failure to properly react after Jordan McNair fell ill on the practice field. The 19-year-old McNair was hospitalized May 29 and died June 13. McNair family attorney Billy Murphy Jr. said Sunday hes seen the preliminary death certificate and has concluded, This is an obvious heatstroke case.Ž Durkin was placed on administrative leave Saturday in the wake of reports that he and his staff verbally abused and humiliated players since his arrival in College Park, Maryland, two years ago. Coach Durkin should be fired immediately,Ž Murphy said. His conduct and the conduct of the coaches was reprehensible. They were not prepared ... to deal with a heatstroke incident.Ž Murphy also contended the climate of the program was all wrong, and cannot be corrected unless Durkin is no longer part of it. Durkin fostered a horrible culture,Ž Murphy said, that included physical and verbalŽ abuse of players. And the third reason he ought to be fired is: How are you going to have a viable football program as long as it is possible for him to become the coach again?Ž Murphy said. Murphy has not yet filed a lawsuit against the school on behalf of the family, but said thats only a matter of time. Dr. Rod Walters, a former college athletic trainer, has been hired by Maryland to head an independent investigation, which is expected to be available by Sept. 15. In the best of all possible worlds we want to wait until that investigation is released,Ž Murphy said. Maryland has put two high-ranking members of the athletic training staff on administrative leave. Murphy said an investigation by his law firm determined the teams head trainer, Wes Robinson, was on the scene when McNair collapsed. We have corroborated facts that Wes Robinson made completely callous statements to Jordan McNair as he was suffering from heatstroke, as his temperature was rising to 106 degrees,Ž Murphy said. He yelled at Jordan McNair, Drag (your butt) across the field. That is absolutely reprehensible and completely reflects the culture that were saying and has been pervading the University of Maryland.Ž Keisha Staples, the mother of junior defensive back Antoine Brooks Jr., said after McNairs death the parents major concern was with the Maryland training staff. Staples said parents she is closest with believed Maryland addressed those concerns by putting Robinson and director of athletic training Steve Nordwall on leave. She had no issues with Durkin, and had little interaction with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who was also placed on leave Saturday. Brooks has never complained about either coach, Staples said. From all the parents that I know personally, theyre in full support of coach Durkin.Ž Staples said parents of players have been reaching out to athletic director Damon Evans to arrange a meeting with him and other university personnel to discuss Durkins situation. Regardless, its too late to correct what happened to McNair on a hot spring day in College Park, Maryland. I think the coaches expected this to be a severe workout because it was their opportunity to find out who was in what shape for football,Ž said Malcolm Ruff, an associate of Murphy, Falcon and Murphy. Ice baths should have been there. Thats the real issue here. You have a young man who is 19 years old who has his entire life ahead of him, but instead of recognizing those symptoms the University of Maryland attempted to re-insert him back into practice.Ž Murphy said the law firm knows of this because, we have spoken to several of the players, and this what they said happened.Ž COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MARYLANDMcNair lawyer calls f or Maryland coach DJ Durkin to be “ redAP PHOTODurkin was placed on administrative leave Saturday in the wake of reports that he and his staff verbally abused and humiliated players since his arrival in College Park, Maryland, two years ago. attacking flags and ran in birdie putts of 10 feet on No. 15 and 7 feet on No. 16 to end the drama. He tapped in for par on the final hole to set the PGA Championship scoring record at 264. It also tied the major championship record that Henrik Stenson set at Royal Troon two years ago in the British Open. Koepka has won three of the last six majors he played, and two of three this year alone. He joined Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only players to win the two U.S. majors that rotate to different courses in the same year. The 28-year-old Floridian also joined Jordan Spieth, Woods, Nicklaus and Tom Watson as the only players with three majors before turning 30 since World War II. Scott hung around by making big putts, just like he hoped, and was tied for the lead until Koepkas birdies. Scott missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the par-5 17th that would have pulled him to within one shot „ right after Koepka missed from the same range „ and then made bogey on the 18th for a 67 to finish alone in third. The St. Louis fans waited 17 years to see Woods „ he last was at Bellerive when the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks canceled a World Golf Championship „ and he delivered a performance that took golf back in time. Thomas Bjorn might have seen it coming. Earlier in the week, as he was cleaning out his locker after withdrawing with an injury, he thought back to Woods getting into contention at Carnoustie last month at the British Open. He recognized who that guy was that day,Ž Bjorn said. Woods was relentless, pumping fists, raising the putter in his left hand, making birdies and charging toward a finish that caused pure pandemonium among one of the largest and noisiest crowds at a major. Without hitting a fairway on the front nine, Woods cut the four-shot deficit to two. Dialed in on the back nine, he dropped an approach into 4 feet on No. 12, got within one shot with a 10-foot birdie on the par-3 13th and, after a bad drive led to bogey, he answered with another approach that hit a foot from the hole. That was as good as it got. Facing the most important drive of the day on the par-5 17th, Woods sent it sailing to the right and it embedded in a hazard along the banks of a creek. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker. Behind him, Koepka holed his two birdie putts. Woods and Koepka played nine holes of a practice round on Wednesday, and the 14-time major champion knew what he was up against. Its tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle,Ž Woods said. What he did at Shinnecock, just bombing it, and then hes doing the same thing here. ... And when a guys doing that and hitting it straight, and as good a putter as he is, its tough to beat.Ž Koepka never imagined a year like this. He missed four months at the start of the year when a partially torn tendon in his left wrist, causing him to sit out the Masters. He outlasted good friend Dustin Johnson at Shinnecock Hills to become the first back-to-back U.S. Open champion in 29 years. And now this. Koepka joked about working out in a public gym this week with Dustin Johnson and not being recognized. He has been motivated by more serious moments, from being left off the notable scoresŽ section of TV coverage at tournaments and even last week, when he was not summoned for a TV interview to preview the PGA Championship. He now is No. 2 in the world, with a shot at overtaking Johnson in two weeks when the FedEx Cup playoffs start. Justin Thomas also had a chance to join Woods as the only back-toback PGA champions in stroke play, and he was tied for the lead briefly on the front nine when Koepka missed fairways and made two straight bogeys. Thomas turned birdie into bogey at the turn with a three-putt from 5 feet, and he missed a short par putt on the 14th to fall back. He shot 68 and tied for sixth. Even with 17 players separated by three shots at one point on the front nine, everyone had to catch Koepka, Woods included.PGAFrom Page 1AP PHOTOTiger Woods reacts to sinking a birdie putt on the ninth green.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, August 13, 2018 / The SunBy LARRY LAGEAssociated pressBROOKLYN, Mich. „ Kevin Harvick broke a tie atop NASCARs Big 3 with a dominant performance, easily winning at Michigan International Speedway for his Cuphigh seventh victory of the season. His No. 4 Ford finished 3-plus seconds ahead of Brad Keselowskis No. 2 Ford on Sunday. Kyle Busch, who started the day with the points lead, finished third in his No. 18 Toyota „ more than 4 seconds behind Harvick. Busch has won six races this year and Martin Truex Jr. has finished in first four times. The rest of the field has combined to win just six of 23 races. Truex Jr., the third driver in NASCARs Big 3 with Harvick and Busch, was 14th in the 40-car field in his No. 78 Toyota. Keselowski said he couldnt be more aggressive late in the 200-lap race because Harvick was so far ahead. Austin Dillon, in the No. 3 Chevrolet, was fourth followed by Ryan Blaneys No. 12 Ford. Harvick was each of three stages and led 108 laps, more than four times more than anyone else on the 2-mile oval. Truex was running with the leaders during the second stage before running out of gas and going into the pits, which were closed. He was penalized for an uncontrollable tire and pushed to the back of the 40-car field. Soon after a restart early in the race, William Byrons No. 24 Chevrolet got loose and made side-by-side contact with Truex to bring out another caution flag. Denny Hamlin led the field to the green flag for the second straight week, but his No. 11 Toyota could not stay ahead. He ended up eighth at MIS after finished 13th in last weeks race at Watkins Glen. NASCAR: MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAYHarvick wins at Michigan for 7th victory of yearAP PHOTOKevin Harvick celebrates his victory after a NASCAR Cup Series auto race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich., Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018. Associated Press Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo edged MotoGP champion Marc Marquez to win the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday. After swapping the lead several times during the race, Marquez overtook Lorenzo again on the final lap but slowed after slipping on his Honda and ultimately finished 0.130 seconds behind in second. Lorenzos teammate Andrea Dovizioso, who won last year, finished third as Ducati retained its unbeaten record on the course since the Austrian MotoGP returned to the calendar in 2016. Chasing his fifth riders championship, Marquez stretched his lead over Yamahas Valentino Rossi to 59 points. The Italian finished sixth after starting the race in 14th. After his third win of the season, Lorenzo climbed to third in the standings, trailing Marquez by 71 points.

By ERIC WILLEMSENAssociated Press Italian cyclist Matteo Trentin sprinted to gold in the mens road race at the European Championships on Sunday as three-time world champion Peter Sagan quit with 84 kilometers (52 miles) left. Spearheading a leading group of five, Italian teammate Davide Cimolai set up Trentin perfectly to beat Dutch rider Mathieu van der Poel and Belgiums Wout van Aert on the final meters. Spains Jesus Herrada Lopez finished fourth. We decided to heat the race from the start, putting guys in the front, not risking anything and in the end it paid off really good as we had a man everywhere. Its unbelievable,Ž said Trentin, whose victory came a week after fellow Italian Marta Bastianelli won the womens race. The five leaders were left from a breakaway group which was reduced following one of many crashes amid persistent rain in a grueling race. Riders completed 16 laps of the 14.4-kilometer course with some tight turns on slippery cobble stones in the shopping streets of Glasgows center. The race got its expected sprint finish „ though without pre-race favorite Sagan, as the Slovakian rider stepped off his bike after two-thirds of the race. I was not in good shape. If you have no legs on this circuit... you need to be in good shape,Ž Sagan told reporters outside the Slovakian team bus. I have still a lot of pain from the crash from the Tour de France.Ž Last month, Sagan crashed heavily on a descent of the 17th stage, but he stayed in the event and ultimately crossed the line in Paris to win his sixth green jersey. Sagan had won the inaugural edition of road cyclings European Championship two years ago, while Alexander Kristoff of Norway claimed the title last year. Sagans quest for another European title was first in doubt after he lost touch with the peloton, left behind after a slow wheel change forced him to catch up with the pack. Later, the Slovak rider dropped behind again, and this time he called it a race. It was a very technical circuit and it was pretty hard,Ž Sagan said. In the end, well, I still had a lot of pain in my back and in my hip and I think I need more time to recover from that crash.Ž Sagan said he still planned to compete in the Cyclassics in Hamburg next Sunday and the Vuelta, which starts in two weeks time. The Grand Tour event in Spain should set him up for the defense of his world title in Innsbruck, on a course requiring a lot of climbing in the Austrian Alps in September. However, chasing a record fourth rainbow jersey was not on his mind yet. I have still some races, Hamburg, Vuelta, different races,Ž Sagan said. I will fight my best for the end of the season.Ž The race had already been deprived of an anticipated showdown between Sagan and another sprinting standout, Mark Cavendish. The British racer pulled out three days ago on medical advice after struggling with illness and injuries throughout the season. Also, Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas was missing on the course where he won the Commonwealth Games in 2014. In other events, Spanish golfer Pedro Oriol teamed up with Scott Fernandez to win the mens team event, beating Birgir Hafthorsson and Axel Boasson, who were part of Icelands golden team at Saturdays mixed competition. Swedens Cajsa Persson and Linda Wessberg won the womens event at Gleneagles. Artur Dalaloyan added two more golds to Russias medal haul in gymnastics by winning the vault and parallel bar events of the mens apparatus finals. EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS: CYCLINGItalian cyclist Trentin sprints to Euro gold as Sagan quitsBy JOE KAYAssociated PressMASON, Ohio „ For the first time in more than a year, the Big FourŽ is back together at the Western & Southern Open. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray highlight the mens bracket that begins Monday in a tournament that will help gauge how several prominent players are recovering from setbacks as the U.S. Open approaches. Murray missed 11 months following hip surgery and tried to return for Wimbledon, but withdrew when he wasnt satisfied with his workouts. Cincinnati will be his fourth tournament in his comeback. He reached the quarterfinals at Washington two weeks ago, his best result. Murray will play Lucas Pouille in the opening round on Monday afternoon. One of the Big FourŽ won the title at Cincinnati in 10 of the last 13 years, with Bulgarias Grigor Dimitrov taking it in 2017. Dimitrov didnt drop a set and lost his serve only once while getting his first Masters title. The second-ranked Federer has a record seven titles in Cincinnati, which is one of his favorite tournaments with its low-key setting. He and No. 1-ranked Nadal have been locked in a season-long, backand-forth atop the rankings, exchanging the top spot six times in the last six months. Nadal is guaranteed to take the top ranking into the U.S. Open. Nadal won his fifth title of the year on Sunday in Toronto, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2, 7-6 (4). While Federer has had great success in Cincinnati „ winning 41 of his last 45 matches „ Djokovic has never won a Western & Southern title „ the only ATP Masters 1000 championship to elude him. Hes reached the finals five times and lost every time, acknowledging that the pressure has played a part. Djokovic is trying once again to become the first to win all nine ATP Masters events. In the womens bracket, Serena Williams faces Daria Gavrilova on Monday night, her first match since she suffered the most lopsided defeat of her career. The 23-time Grand Slam champion lost 6-1, 6-0 to Johanna Konta in San Jose, then withdrew from the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Williams had a baby in September and developed blood clots. She was the runner-up at Wimbledon last month, her fourth tournament since she returned to the tour. When she withdrew from the Rogers Cup, the 36-year-old Williams said shes been struggling with postpartum emotions. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk,Ž Williams said in an Instagram post Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom.Ž Top-ranked Simona Halep is fresh off another title. She beat Sloane Stephens 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-4 for her third title this year „ she also beat Stephens for the French Open title. Stephens is preparing to defend her surprising U.S. Open title last year. She was the runner-up in the French Open, but lost in the opening round at Wimbledon for the second straight year. The loss to Halep on Sunday left her 0-8 against No. 1-ranked players. TENNIS: WESTERN & SOUTHERN OPENReunion time: Big 4 back together at Cincinnati TENNIS: ROGERS CUPSimona Halep wins in Montreal, beating Sloane StephensAssociated Press Top-ranked Simona Halep outlasted thirdranked Sloane Stephens 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-4 on Sunday to win her second Rogers Cup title. The 26-year-old Romanian star also won the hard-court event that rotates between Toronto and Montreal in 2016 in Montreal. In a rematch of Haleps French Open final victory, she overcame Stephens in the match that had 15 service breaks. Halep has won her last six meetings with the 25-year-old American. Stephens, preparing for her U.S. Open title defense, is 0-8 against No. 1-ranked players. I couldnt believe that its over,Ž Halep said. I was really tired. I feel like these tournaments, at this level, you have to have one day off between the matches. Its really tough. Its brutal. This week it was really tough.Ž Halep won her third title of the year and 18th overall. Both matches were crazy good,Ž Halep said about the French and Rogers finals. She makes me play better and better every time we meet each other. Thats a great thing for me. I feel like she improved in her mental (side) also. She doesnt give up that much now. Of course, shes a strong player. I think shes a complex player. She has everything.Ž A large Romanian contingent waving their red and yellow flags chanted Haleps name between points. However, there were just as many pulling for Stephens in a match of two players who dont overpower with their serve but hammer groundstrokes down the lines. I thought I played well, I thought she played well,Ž Stephens said. Obviously, in a final, you hope for matches like that „ super competitive, high energy. Theres nothing more than you could hope for in a final. Its obviously upsetting that I didnt win, but I think I got better than the last final we played. Yeah, its disappointing, but I think this will help me moving forward, getting ready to go into (Cincinnati) and the U.S. Open.ŽAP PHOTOSimona Halep of Romania reacts after defeating Sloane Stephens of the United States to win the final of the Rogers Cup tennis tournament Sunday.
