If that vehicle drove past a law enforcement patrol car equipped with a license plate reader, the of“ cer would immediately get an alert, and a life could potentially be saved. Its an extra set of eyes for the of“ cer, but its running thousands of tags per minute,Ž said North Port Police Department Deputy Chief Chris Morales. Morales said NPPD has purchased its “ rst license plate reader through Vigilant Solutions, following the same brand used by the Charlotte and Sarasota County sheriffs of“ ces, and a growing number of agencies around Florida. The unit has two different camera angles and takes photos of surrounding license plates, capturing the date, time, and GPS coordinates of where the photo was taken. License plate readers are just one example of how new technology is changing the jobs of those in law enforcement, providing a plethora of information accessible to of“ cers in seconds. The images captured by the camera are stored in the Vigilants database in Virginia as a record that can be searched only by authorized personnel. Each individual agency can decide whether to share its data with other agencies or not. Advocacy groups such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation have raised concerns about technology like license plate readers: Taken in the aggregate, ALPR data can paint an intimate portrait of a drivers life and even chill First Amendment protected activity. ALPR technology can be used to target drivers who visit sensitive places such as health centers, immigration clinics, gun shops, union halls, protests or centers of religious worship.Ž An American Civil Liberties Union report from 2013 concluded the implementation of automatic license plate readers across the country poses a serious threat to privacy and other civil liberties, because they allow citizens locations to be tracked: More and more cameras, longer retention periods, and widespread sharing allow law enforcement agents to assemble the individual puzzle pieces of where we have been over time into a single, high-resolution image of our lives.Ž But Morales said he doesnt think privacy is an issue. The license plate readers are no different than the ones that capture plates for tolls throughout the state, he said. To me, I dont see an issue, but I know its been brought up in the past,Ž he said. Tag readers are utilized all across the country.Ž The ACLU report raised the concern that if license plate reader databases are not properly secured, they open the door to abusive tracking, enabling anyone with access to pry into the lives of his boss, his ex-wife, or his romantic, political, or workplace rivals.Ž Vigilant Solutions refutes Police technology keeps evolving SUN PHOTOS BY ANNE EASKERCrime Scene Unit Supervisor Kary Brese surveys a digital scan of a crime scene provided by the FARO 3D Scanner.

THE BOTTOM LINEOn this Labor Day weekend, we take a look at one of the toughest jobs out there. This is the first of a two-part series looking at whats new in law enforcement. € Today: The technology that police say helps them solve crimes. € Coming Monday : Agencies offering incentives for staying fit. High-tech scanners help police solve crime POLICE | 4By KAYLA GLEASONSTAFF WRITERWith the primary election over, attention has turned to Novembers general election. And the League of Women Voters of Florida (LWVF) has a serious concern, shared by its local counterparts. Expanded use of college campuses like FSW (Florida Southwestern State College) would enable more young people to vote,Ž President of the Charlotte County League of Women Voters Julie McGillivray, told the Sun It will raise their awareness, and provide a convenient access point for them,Ž McGillivray said. Certainly, if we can have polling stations in local community centers and yacht clubs, we can have them on local college campuses where busy young people spend the majority of their time.Ž Up until just recently, early voting sites on college campuses was banned. But in July, a federal court ruled that was unconstitutional and put an unfair burden on college students. The LWVF, the American Civil Liberties Union and other organizations are urging local elections supervisors „ such as those in Charlotte and Sarasota counties „ to establish early voting sites on college campuses before the November general election. Though some elections supervisors have announced early voting will be offered on some college campuses in Alachua, Hillsborough, Leon and Orange counties, its unlikely to happen locally. University of Florida, the University of South Florida and the University of Central Florida main campuses are expected to have early voting sites leading up to the general election, Tampa Bay Times reported. But locally, there are no plans to make these changes for the 2018 General Election, where satellites of major state colleges and universities are located in both Charlotte and Sarasota counties. Those institutions include Florida SouthWestern State College, State College of Florida and USF. We try our best to make voting Are young voters left out at the polls?Local college campus early voting sites unlikely MORE INFOFor more information on voter registration and voting precincts, visit charlottevotes. com or sarasotavotes. com.VOTERS | 4

Polk Avenue, Arcadia By BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERTogether Charlotte is poised to release its long-awaited report that will offer strategies to prevent a predicted crisis in workforce housing. At the latest gathering of the coalition this past week, members spoke of a future in Charlotte County where there are not enough people to staff restaurants, stores, gas stations, construction sites, and to do yard maintenance. What if every restaurant becomes a buffet, because theres nobody there to serve you?Ž asked Alecia Cunningham, director of social services for Charlotte County Homeless Coaltion. Charlotte County Director of Human Services Carrie Hussey agreed saying, We need to show people what happens if we dont do something.Ž Together Charlotte is a coalition of government, nonpro“t and business members who agreed to work together in recent years to address issues of critical importance to residents of the county. It has an estimated 80 members from organizations ranging from county planning staff to area hospitals to building industry experts to local charities. About 20 of those members met this past week to plan for the release of the report. They are preparing to help spread the word about possible strategies that the county can take, including strategies for business, nonpro“ts and government. So far, the coalition is not yet releasing the details of the report to the public. The plan is to meet with members of the Board of County Commissioners “rst and seek guidance, Hussey said. Full details of the report will be publicly available later in September. Some of the report is based on input from 100 members of the public who attended meetings this past year. Other parts of the report are based on research by housing and planning experts. During the public meetings earlier this year, residents spoke of their precarious housing situations. This helped the coalition to name affordable housing as the most important issue facing the county at this time. The issue mirrors a national crisis in affordable housing, but also re”ects problems unique to Charlotte County. Most notable is the fact that Charlotte County has one of the oldest age demographics in the country due to retirees. As a result, it has a higher than normal rate of home ownership, and a lower rate of workforce participation. These are facts released in the past by the countys Economic Development Of“ce. The high rate of home ownership means the number of rental properties is limited and physical space for rental construction is limited. The lower workforce participation rate means there are fewer people to handle the call for service workers in tourism, retail and elder care. Residents attending Together Charlotte gatherings in recent months have told stories of challenges trying to “nd housing when rentals often run $1,200 or more per month.Email: ecalvert@sun-herald.comStrategies for housing to be revealedWill workers leave without more affordable options?

All three plans, approved by the Charlotte County Commissioners earlier in the summer, override earlier subdivision plans. Two of the plans, including Murdock, are preliminary and only include the design for basic roads, water and sewer. In addition to the Murdock mega-plan, the board also approved two smaller plans, one in Englewood and one in Punta Gorda. The plan in Englewood is called Lake Emily and replaces an earlier plan called Winchester Lake Subdivision that was never built. Winchester Lake was intended to be for 169 lots. Lake Emily, also along Winchester Boulevard, does not include individual lots yet. The site is 176 acres. In Punta Gorda, Calusa Creek Section B is described as a remake of an earlier subdivision plan for 124 lots that was also never built. The new plan calls for 66 single-family lots on 14 acres east of Duncan Road on Shell Mound Circle The Murdock Village plan is part of Private Equity Group, LLCs goal to develop 434 acres north of El Joean Road and west of Market Circle. PEGs plan calls for the installation of water, sewer and turning ODonnell Boulevard into a four-lane connector between U.S. 41 and State Road 776. Both Lake Emily and Murdock Village have requirements to protect wetlands along with protected species. PEG must come up with a gopher tortoise avoidance plan before clearing land, and a tortoise relocation plan approved by the state. Lake Emily must comply with requirements of a Habitat Reservation Trust with a minimum of 5 percent of development area set aside for preservation.New Charlotte developments moving forward No adjustments on previously sold merchandise.

ALPR records contain no personally identi“able information,Ž said Mary Alice Johnson, spokeswoman for Vigilant Solutions, a partner of Vetted Security Solutions that manufactures the devices. Vigilant Solutions is committed to ensuring the right to individual privacy.Ž Morales said of“cers are using the device only to look for people of interest in stolen vehicle cases, AMBER Alerts and Silver Alerts, and people with outstanding warrants, not to track individuals locations. Thats not the purpose of it,Ž he said. Thats a misconceived thing. Were not worried about where you are.Ž According to Morales, the value of the plate reader is in the crimes it will solve, which he expects to be many. AMBER Alerts are the perfect example, he said. If a kidnapper with a child went by and the of“cer didnt notice the tag, the device would notify them and can also be programmed to alert all the police departments units for a quick, ef“cient response. Not all agencies are following North Ports concept. We want to make it impossible for you to enter Riviera Beach without being detected,Ž that citys police department spokeswoman, Rose Anne Brown, told the SunSentinel in 2016. Home to about 50,000 residents, the city of Coral Gables this past week received notice of a pending suit by the New Civil Liberties Alliance after the discovery that its police department was on track to capture 30 million license plates this year, more than 26 other Florida agencies that were analyzed, according to the New Times. Crime scene scanning New technology isnt just for the road or the CSI franchise of TV shows that are now in reruns around the clock with Law and Order programming. At the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce, the FARO 3D Laser Scanner collects complete images of crime scenes, making crime scene technicians work more precise „ but also much more time consuming. The scanner sends out laser lights at known intervals and captures a 360 degree view of the scene. The measurements are accurate down to the millimeter. The scanner is used in all homicides, any death that appears unnatural, gunshot scenes, and anything with a lot of blood splatter. Each scan can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, and the crime scene technicians often have to move it to different areas and heights to capture the entire scene. Crime Scene Unit Supervisor Kary Brese said before the scanner, everything was measured by hand with either a laser measuring device or a tape measure, and those measurements could always be off due to human error. With FARO, everything is covered,Ž she said. Its helpful because you can go back and look at things that might not have seemed pertinent at the time.Ž Brese said a lot has changed for crime scene technicians in the last few years. They dont just take a camera and “ngerprint powder to the scene anymore. The scanners ability to capture the crime scene frozen in time lets technicians go back and capture evidence down to the millimeter. But its also increased the time involved. An overdose might take a few hours to process, but a homicide could take days. Its de“nitely made the quality of our work much better,Ž Brese said. Were spending more time at crime scenes and more time afterward in the lab.Ž Digital forensics After an initial investigation, when a search warrant gives law enforcement access to cell phones and computers, digital forensic units can “nd vast information that never really disappears, even when its deleted. A lot of times well execute search warrants, and well be able to “nd hidden “les the suspect has deleted,Ž said Sgt. John Jenson, of the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce. SCSOs Digital Forensic Lab is getting involved in more and more cases, since a lmost everyone has access to some form of technology. The software they use lets them access text messages, photos, and more „ even when those files may be deleted. The way I describe it to people is when you delete a file on your cell phone, its still on that device until it gets written over by another file,Ž said Lt. Jon Varley. Its still there until the phone randomly uses that storage space that contained that image or information. And even then, it could still partially be the re. The inform ation on top of it might not be as large as what was there originally.Ž If a photo is deleted, of“cers still might be able to extract the top portion of the photo. If that top portion contains a persons face, it might allow them to identify a suspect. Its a double-edged sword,Ž Varley said. Its making our job easier in regard to closing out cases, but making it more dif“cult in regard to having so much information. The workload has increased. In the past, you would try to get “ngerprints, canvass the neighborhood. If you didnt have access to those things, you didnt have much to go on. Now you may have cell phone evidence, surveillance cameras, etc.Ž Law enforcement of“cers involved in digital forensics must consistently attend additional training as technology continues to involve. To search a device, they must have a warrant just like they would for searching a home, but a warrant doesnt guarantee easy access. Apple and other cell phone providers are constantly creating their devices to be more secure. Theyre moving at the speed of light; were moving at the speed of light minus 10,Ž Jenson said. The Sun-Sentinel supplemented this report.POLICEFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDED BY PRNEWSFOTO/VIGILANT SOLUTIONSLicense Plate Recognition Camera from Vigilant Solutions.

It continues: Recording driving habits could implicate First Amendment concerns. Specifically, LPR systems have the ability to record vehicles attendance at locations or events that, although lawful and public, may be considered private. For example, mobile LPR units could read and collect the license plate numbers of vehicles parked at addiction counseling meetings, doctors offices, health clinics, or even staging areas for political protests.Ž „ Source: Vigilant Solutions, The Atlantic magazine PHOTO PROVIDEDAt left: The FARO 3D Scanner at the scene of a death investigation where a body was recovered from a retention pond.

Unlike many campuses, FSW-PG is a commuter college. No one lives there, and our Early Voting location at the Old County Courthouse is only three miles away,Ž said Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis. Charlotte currently offers three early voting locations: the Historical Court House in Punta Gorda, Mid-County Regional Library in Port Charlotte and San Casa Elections Of“ce in Englewood. Of“cials at FSW declined to comment on the issue last week. But McGillivray said the campus could prove important regardless of whether or not students live there. Currently, only two out of 10 young people, she said, consider themselves politically active. I believe that a greater number of young people would have voted, had that been a polling station,Ž she said. In the absence of early voting locations on local college campuses for the general election, McGillivray pointed to an important alternative to promote turnout among younger voters. This is another reason to encourage them to consider registering to vote by mail. Vote by mail has proven an effective means of increasing voter participation by as much as 10 percent,Ž she said. Young people can play an impactful role in the political process, not unlike other age brackets,Ž McGillivray said. Still, young people are exhausted by politics „ midterm elections draw only about 15 percent to cast their vote, which is half that of older voters. Its really a mixed bag. Young people feel issues important to them are being largely ignored.Ž In the local 2016 general election in Charlotte County, only 9,660 people between 18 and 35 voted. Meanwhile, 45,598 residents over 66 years old voted, according to information from the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections website. Its similar in Sarasota County, where 18 to 29-year-olds only represent just over 10 percent of the voting population, according to the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections website. Ron Turner, Sarasota Elections Supervisor said: We regularly assess our early voting and election day locations based on accessibility and voter need.Ž But both Turner and Stamoulis have no plans to make this change and offer early voting sites on college campuses in Charlotte and Sarasota counties, they con“rmed. There are currently six early voting sites in Sarasota „ West“eld Sarasota Square Mall, Fruitville Library, North Sarasota Library and one in each of the supervisor of“ces in Sarasota, Venice and North Port. The closest early voting location to USF Sarasota and New College of Florida is North Sarasota Library, about four miles away. SCF-Venices closest early voting location is six miles away at the Venice supervisors of“ce. Even the 10 to 20 minute drive, however, can be tough on students. Data compiled from 214 universities across the United States showed that under half of college attendees bring cars to campus. If they dont vote by mail, they have to walk, “nd a ride or navigate public transportation „ which can be challenging in smaller cities. For instance, it would take about an hour to get from USF SarasotaManatee to their closest early voting location. They would also have to spend another hour getting back to campus plus wait in line to vote, time that many students just dont have. Meanwhile, the Sarasota League of Women Voters (SLWV) have used this as an opportunity to further their own outreach. Step one is to encourage students to register to vote. The Sarasota League already has dates arranged for voter registration to occur at New College, USF and Ringing College of Art and Design,Ž SLWV President Carol Hartz said in an email. Ultimately, Hartz noted what the League of Women Voters of Florida President Patti Brigham has stressed. The lack of early voting on some college campuses sends a terrible message to our young people, she said.Email: kgleason@sun-herald.comVOTERSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY KAYLA GLEASONView of the courtyard at FSW-Punta Gorda.

Page 5 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018We must preserve democratic valuesEditor: Aug. 21, 2018, the day our democracy and Constitution did us proud. Separate but equal branches of government, as well as a free press, are helping us understand what actually occurred in a most unusual election. The guilty verdict regarding Manafort and the guilty plea of Cohen are perfect examples of an independent judicial system doing its job, investigating potential criminal activity, just as it did during the Nixon and Clinton administrations. Our democracy needs the protection of thorough scrutiny of issues related to the core value of open and fair elections. However, the “nal judicial outcome of the current situation will undoubtedly end up in the Supreme Court, months if not years from now. A court made up of political appointments. Most, however, predict the “nal outcome will be political, and that means the U.S. Congress. Thus the time is soon coming for the legislative branch of government to do its job. The legislature is the branch of government most directly representing individual constituencies. Hence the time is soon approaching for us citizens to do our job. A free press with good, fair and thorough investigative reporting on both sides of the issues is essential to our informed decision-making. I would suggest the gravity of the overriding issue this country faces, the ability to choose our political leaders through a fair and honest election, should guide our votes. Candidates that hold our democratic values paramount deserve our support. Candidates that support the subversion of those values do not.Robert Tompkins Rotonda WestOld Punta Gorda on solid footingEditor: This is a public update regarding the organization Old Punta Gorda Inc. doing business as Punta Gorda Historical Society. Under our new leadership, we are now solvent. Since January 2017, we have faced many challenges and handled many negative rumors that were then and are now false. I want to thank the city of Punta Gorda, the city Police Department, Punta Gorda History Center, The Old Timers, the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port-Association of Realtors, volunteers and members for their support and for standing with us through these trying times. The of“cers and board of directors in this organization are dedicated to preserving our local history and historical buildings through programs and events so residents and visitors can learn about and enjoy our fascinating past. Recently, a rumor has been circulating that the Historical Society is going under and that the Womens Club building (which is on the National Registry for Historic Buildings) will be given back to the Womens Club and put up for sale due to “nancial dif“culties. This is a false rumor. I strongly urge the public, the members and other organizations not to listen to any negative rumors or gossip. This only serves the agenda of the person spreading the false information. This is a personal letter from me. I am the recording secretary of Old Punta Gorda Inc. DBA Punta Gorda Historical Society. The organization is solvent.Martha McKenzie Punta GordaGov. Scott de“led paradiseEditor: Imagine Southwest Florida without sea turtles, dolphins, manatee and tarpon. What health effects does pollution have on children, shorebirds, etc.? These are things we dont yet know. What we do know is corporate polluters are ruining our country and state under current administrations. Climate-denying industry pro“teers make billions at the expense of the health of our families, wildlife and future. Their war on truth and science and their move to dismantle environmental protections has caused our catastrophe. Rick Scott, Trump and cronies need to be voted out. We need to face up to the cost of their greed and ignorance even if they wont. Billions in losses from wild“res on the West Coast, more intense hurricanes, climate extremes, etc., from which we may never recover. We need to stop this short-sighted thinking and turn our country around now. Rick Scott, you ruined our beloved paradise, you de“led our home.Teresa de Simone Rotonda WestErasing legacy of the circus?Editor: We can all rest peacefully today knowing that the terrible graphicsŽ that graced the Animal Cracker boxes for generations will disappear into oblivion. I would like to think they would disappear into the history books; but alas, it will likely not be so. Along with many other things from our past that today we understand were wrong, all mention of the circus must be erased. I expect soon that any monuments or statues of John Ringling will be removed. That would work with the agenda of Sarasota County, as it would make room for more condos.Sylvia E. Warren EnglewoodThanks for the opportunityEditor: On Aug. 22, Charlotte County Community Service displayed an opportunity for residents to speak about their concerns and their resolve for future and existing recreational amenities that they as taxpayers would like to see come to their, or other parts of the recreational domain, given location. The surprising low gathering spoke of their concerns with recommendations to correct or point directions to the enthusiastic staffers who were ready and able to answer all. I was impressed with the willingness and knowledge the staffers presented at their displays. I wish to thank Community Services for their efforts to reach out to the residents and praise them for their insights. To those residents who were in attendance, I thank you for your response to their guidance.Art Richards Rotonda WestGive Gillum a fair, clean runEditor: Today as I put an Andrew Gillum for Governor sticker on the back of my car, it reminds me of when I drove around Charlotte County with an Obama for President sticker. One day a carload of young men beeped us from behind, tapped my car and pushed us into a muddy ditch. The usŽ that I refer to was my 98-yearold mother and me. Neither of us was hurt. Mom shook her head. Shed endured other indignities. She had faith, and to calm my anger, she told me someone good would come along to help us. She was right. My mother died six months ago. I wonder what she would think of an African-American running for governor of Florida. Shed want to know: Is his heart in the right place? Is his character upright? Are his policies sound? The same as she would want to know of any candidate for of“ce. Ive studied Andrew Gillum; I give him high marks. I sincerely hope that Floridians, all Floridians, especially those who pushed my car off the road, will look beyond skin color and take the high road and allow Andrew Gillum a no mud-slinging, no dogwhistling fair run.Naomi Pringle Port CharlotteVIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to letters@sun-herald.com OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR POSITION: Harnessing the power of scienti“c inquiry to remedy environmental ills.There are many unsettling things about the lingering red tide outbreak in Southwest Florida: The “sh and wildlife kills, the heavy air that chokes the coast one day or the next, the inconvenience and disruption of daily life for residents and the loss of income for businesses. Add to that another. What we “nd to be a noxious impulse: Cynicism that leads to “nger-pointing aimed at those attempting to provide a balanced scienti“c explanation of what is known and what isnt known. The phenomenon was on display at a recent community meeting that drew more than 700 people to Englewood. Among those on a panel discussing the question were Richard Pierce, the associate vice president for research at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota. As Pierce was explaining that the toxic Karenia brevis algae occurred naturally in the environment, someone shouted, How can we trust you if Mote takes money from Mosaic? Its dirty money.Ž There were more jeers. According to a report from Sun staff writer Elaine Allen-Emrich, Pierce responded appropriately, slamming the fake newsŽ that leads some to question Motes integrity. Pierce did acknowledge the fact that Mote did get phosphate industry donations for a 5K race and a “shery program. He also insisted, We are scientists. We report data which is important to understanding what is going on with the water.Ž Plus, he acknowledged phosphate and nutrient pollution added to algae blooms. There are many, many sources of nutrients,Ž he said. Motes point is that whether or not it enhances red tide, we should not have excess nutrients coming to our coast.Ž That includes nutrient runoff from malfunctioning septic systems, from fertilizer and from discharges from algae-“lled Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico. Charlotte County has instituted a progressive program to do away with septic tanks in sensitive areas in Port Charlotte. More must be done „ for example around here, on Manasota Key in Englewood and South Venice. The state needs to increase assistance for septic-to-sewer conversion. State government also must take steps as soon as possible to store and clean the water in Lake Okeechobee, so polluted water isnt released into the rivers. And then, we also need to launch a comprehensive study by Floridas best scienti“c institutions into the underlying causes of red tide blooms and the potential steps that can be taken to prevent or mitigate noxious blooms like the one were experiencing now. There are plenty of theories ”oating in cyberspace right now, but not enough solid scienti“c information. We need much more. Without it, we cant really expect to address the problem properly. It is not simple. The natural world is not simple. As one person recently framed it, this is not a matter of simple math, but algebra. Not even algebra, perhaps, but calculus. Just to say: Its complicated. But thats what scientists do. They study and explain complex natural phenomena. Rather than rip Mote for perceived con”icts of interest, we should insist they and other research facilities are empowered to do more. A lot more. That will take time and money, but we need to gear up now. Lets also consider paying for it with a fee on phosphate and fertilizer, both where it is produced and where it is purchased. That way well know the money from an industry that may well be adding to the problem is paying to help mitigate it too.Less lip service, more science is needed ASAP HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 6Four decades ago, New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, an intellectual Democrat, observed with amazement and regret that Republicans had become the party of ideas. Today, many of Americas most interesting arguments divide conservatives. One concerns the judiciarys role in the supervision of democracy: Should judges be, as Oliver Wendell Holmes and Robert Bork believed, deferential to majorities, or should judges be engaged in limiting majorities in the name of liberty? Another intramural conservative debate is whether originalismŽ is suf“cient as a method of construing the Constitution. So, Brett Kavanaughs Senate interrogators might usefully ask: OriginalistsŽ say the text should be construed by discerning the public meaning of its words when they were written. The 1866 Congress that drafted the 14th Amendments guarantee of equal protection of the lawŽ continued to fund racially segregated schools in the District of Columbia, which Congress controlled. Yet the 1954 Brown decision held that segregation violated that guarantee. Can originalists defend the courts reasoning in Brown? How might the court have better reached the Brown result? When the 14th Amendment was rati“ed, 32 of the 37 states had laws criminalizing sodomy. Can originalists defend the courts 2003 ruling that such laws violate this amendments due processŽ guarantee? The Eighth Amendment proscribes cruel and unusualŽ punishments. But punishments contemporaneous with the rati“cation of this amendment included branding, pillorying, whipping and mutilation. Would originalism allow these? Holmes said: I dont care what (the Constitutions Framers) intention was. I only want to know what the words mean.Ž But can the meaning of words be severed from the intentions of those who use them? Abraham Lincoln said the Declaration of Independence is the apple of goldŽ that is framedŽ by something silverŽ: the Constitution. Silver is less precious than gold; frames serve what they frame. Do you believe that the Constitutions authors intended their words to advance what the Declaration began „ the securing of natural rights? Do you agree (as the Goldwater Institutes Timothy Sandefur argues) that the Declaration is logically as well as chronologically prior to the Constitution: The Declaration sets the framework for readingŽ the Constitution as a charter for government institutedŽ to secureŽ pre-existing rights? When the First Congress debated what became the Bill of Rights, a member questioned why the drafters enumerated only certain rights. Massachusetts Rep. Theodore Sedgwick replied: They might have gone into a very lengthy enumeration of rights; they might have declared that a man should have a right to wear his hat if he pleased; that he might get up when he pleased, and go to bed when he thought proper, but (I) would ask the gentleman whether he thought it necessary to enter these tri”es in a declaration of rights, under a government where none of them were intended to be infringed.Ž By what principles do you determine what rights are neither tri”es nor enumerated? Justice Clarence Thomas says, We as a nation adopted a written Constitution precisely because it has a “xed meaning that does not change.Ž Can you cite an important constitutional provision (certainly not the regulation of interstate commerce, or the establishment of religion, or government taking private property for public use,Ž or the prohibition of cruel and unusual punishmentsŽ) the meaning of which today is the same as the public meaning when the provision was rati“ed? Bork said the central problem of constitutional lawŽ is: Our political ethos is majoritarian, but the Supreme Court, with the power to strike down laws democratically enacted, is counter-majoritarian.Ž Others, however, say that majority rule is a process ; the purpose of Americas collective existence is an outcome a condition : liberty, which the process can threaten. What say you? Sandefur argues that the Fifth and 14th Amendments guarantees of due process of lawŽ are not purely about process. Rather, the adjective dueŽ modi“es the noun processŽ by giving it the following substance: Due process produces an outcome that is not arbitrary as measured by criteria inherent in the concept of law „ generality, fairness and rationality understood as a cost-ef“cient means to a legitimate government end. Finally, University of Chicago and New York University professor Richard Epstein says the Constitutions architecture „ separation of powers, checks and balances, federalism, guarantees of individual rights „ implies a presumption of errorŽ: The architecture intentionally slows the political process because government interventions in societys spontaneous order are presumptively of dubious legitimacy because government is presumed to be not disinterested but serving factional interests, or its own.

WEEK IN REVIEW VIEWPOINT One of the unpleasant surprises of your 50s (among many) is seeing the heroes and mentors of your 20s pass away. I worked for the late Chuck Colson, of Watergate fame, who became, through his work with prisoners, one of the most important social reformers of the 20th century. I worked for the late Jack Kemp, who inspired generations of conservatives with his passion for inclusion. I worked against the late John McCain in the 2000 Republican primaries, but came to admire his truculent commitment to principle. Perhaps it is natural to attribute heroism to past generations and to “nd a sad smallness in your own. But we are seeing the largest test of political character in my lifetime. And where are the Republican leaders large enough to show the way? President Trumps recent remarks to evangelicals at the White House capture where Republican politics is heading. This Nov. 6 election,Ž Trump said, is very much a referendum on not only me, its a referendum on your religion.Ž A direct, unadorned appeal to tribal hostilities. Fighting for Trump, Trump argued, is the only way to defend the Christian faith. None of these men and women of God, apparently, gagged on their hors doeuvres. If religious get-outthe-vote efforts are insuf“cient, according to the president, that will be the beginning of ending everything youve gotten.Ž The gates of hell will not prevail against the church, but evidently Nancy Pelosi would. Its not a question of like or dislike, its a question that they (Democrats) will overturn everything that weve done and they will do it quickly and violently. And violently. There is violence.Ž Here Trump is preparing his audience for the possibility of bloodshed by predicting it from the other side. Christians, evidently, need to start taking Onward, Christian SoldiersŽ more literally. This is now what passes for GOP discourse „ the cultivation of anger, fear, grievances, prejudices and hatreds. I have sympathy for principled Republicans at a time when principle is swiftly and effectively punished. In Floridas recent primaries, signi“cantly more Republican voters said they were loyal to Trump than to the GOP. In many places, the only way for an average Republican senator or House member to maintain any political in”uence is to burn incense to the emperor. But Republican leaders need to prepare themselves. This compromise is likely to be temporary. Trump is not only making a challenge to the Republican establishment; he is increasingly impatient with structures of democratic accountability. As Edward Luce argues in The Retreat of Western Liberalism,Ž the true populist loses patience with the rules of the democratic game.Ž He comes to view himself as the embodied voice of the people, and opponents as (in Trumps words) un-AmericanŽ and treasonous.Ž As Robert Mueller continues his inexorable investigation of Trumps sleazy business and political world „ and if Democrats gain the House and begin aggressive oversight „ a cornered president may test the limits of executive power in the attempt to avoid justice. If the GOP narrowly retains control of the House, Trump and others will take it as the vindication of his whole approach to politics. The president will doubtlessly go further in targeting his enemies for investigation and other harm. He will doubtlessly attack the independence of the FBI and attempt to make it an instrument of his will. He will doubtlessly continue his vendetta against responsible journalism and increase his pressure on media companies that dont please him. On a broad front, Trumps lunacy would become operational. The separation of powers does not work automatically, like a washing machine. Republicans must pick their own point of principled resistance to a corrosive populism, if they have one at all. In the preface to his play A Man for All Seasons,Ž author Robert Bolt tries to explain the character of Thomas More, who ends up killed for his opposition to the king. He knew where he began and left off,Ž Bolt says, what area of himself he could yield to the encroachments of his enemies, and what to the encroachments of those he loved ... But at length he was asked to retreat from that final area where he located himself. And there this supple, humorous, unassuming and sophisticated person set like metal, was overtaken by an absolutely primitive rigor and could no more be budged than a cliff.Ž Republican leaders may dread it, but they will eventually be forced to identify that “nal area where they keep themselves „ or “nd there is no one there.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy MICHELLE VALKOVSUN CORRESPONDENTNORTH PORT „ Traditionally, coding excluded girls, so the North Port Public Library is working to spark interest with Girls who Code program. The “rst session begins Tuesday from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. and goes through Dec. 11, every Tuesday afternoon. The program is free and open to all. Participants can sign up on the North Port Public Library website under the Calendar of Events. Girls Who Code is a national program and the North Port Public Library was one of the chosen agencies to run the program. The library receives training for it. The program focuses on the accomplishments on women in coding and trying to promote girls into coding. During the classes, students will “nd out something about historical women involved with computer science and throughout the course they will develop something thats going to be community centered for the project. The girls can develop an app, or website, or an animation. It is open ended as far as what they choose to do,Ž said Marcus Gilfert, North Ports teen librarian at the library. Gilfert said he likes seeing girls help each other when working on the projects. Maybe the girls who are a bit more advanced in the coding help the ones who are just starting out or have a question and are unfamiliar,Ž he said. And we really encourage everyone to have an input on the “nal project, so no matter your skill level, everyone contributes on the “nal result.Ž The program gives an entry to the younger generation into the technology world moving forward and it is self-paced. There is access to the program online as well.

Salford, North Port. 697-1747 A 66-year-old Punta Gorda woman was seriously injured early Saturday morning when her bicycle was struck by a semi-truck near the intersection of U.S. 41 and Payne Street. Joyce Hughes was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital following the incident. Doney Pulido, 55, of Lehigh Acres was driving the tractor trailer and did not sustain any injuries. Florida Highway Patrol reported the crash happened as Hughes was riding westbound on Payne Street and Pulido was northbound in the right lane of U.S. 41. Hughes, who was not wearing a helmet and whose bicycle had no lights, turned into the right lane of U.S. 41 in front of Pulido. The front left of the semi then struck the left rear side of the bicycle. Hughes bike overturned and came to an uncontrolled stop in the northbound left lane of U.S. 41.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSIf youve lived in Englewood all your long life, or youre just now reading the word Englewood for the “rst time this morning, you owe it to yourself to come down and watch the Pioneer Days Parade. Now in its 62nd year, its the states oldest parade. Every Labor Day morning, we break the record again for continuously running parade in Florida. Probably runningŽ isnt the best word to use here. Its a very leisurely parade. There are sure to be some gaps. But there will be lots of other things. Im almost positive there will be bunches of clowns, and a cadre of conquistadors. We can expect the Lemon Bay High School Marching Manta Band and well see Mr. and Miss Pioneer Days of varying ages. There will be police cars and “re trucks and big boats, and any number of riders on beautiful horses. Some classy and classic convertibles will convey the honorary Grand Marshals (say hello to the ladies of the Lemon Bay Womans Club and Rick Goff when they come by!) and our brand new Englewood Mayor for a Day. Although if I know Mayor Marg, shes more likely to be straddling her thundering tryke as she traverses the route. I wonder how many clocks there will be, since the theme is Journey in Time.Ž The thing is, you never know what youll see until it play out in front of you. We do know the color guard will lead the way with the American Flag. (Please stand, if you are able, and kindly remove your hat.) The smart money says the Englewood Area Fire Control District will pull up the rear with one of its big trucks, lights ”ashing and sirens blaring. Its a pretty old-school parade. Ill tell you this, its not one of those parades where people will cart their lawn chairs down to the curb two weeks beforehand, and lock them down with bicycle chains to stake out a prime viewing spot. Maybe that happens up north, but not here. Thats because there is plenty of room to watch the Pioneer Days Parade. Its about two miles from the Englewood Center where it marshals up (Obees Sandwiches, Rowley Insurance), and the St. Raphael Catholic Church where it winds down. There should be no problem “nding a place where no else one is standing, sitting or leaning up against a tree or a tailgate. By the way, that two miles is about 3.22K, if youre a “tness person or still part of the European Union. Everyone has their own way of doing the parade. A lot of families stop for breakfast on the way, while some will just pick up a cup of coffee. Many will make a day out of it, planning to hang around Pioneer Park and watch the pie-eating or the watermelon-eating contests, or maybe even take part. Many people will bring their kids or grandkids, nieces or nephews „ that is, if theyre not in the parade already. The chances are good theyll catch a couple of peppermints or some beads, or someone will hand them a tiny American ”ag or a cardboard fan. Tell me, isnt all that enough to get you out of the air conditioning for a few hours? Besides, where else are you going to get the chance to help break a state record this weekend?

Just ask Alex Vangor, 9, Debbie Brannon, 10, Natalie Brannon, 9, Autumn Matthews, 10. They researched the unicorn-like creature with a large tusk. Then they patterned their giant cardboard boat after the majestic mammal. The narwhal used to be hunted in the waters of Antarctica because its a giant whale with a horn,Ž Natalie said. It used its horn to cut through the waters. It was hunted for its horn. But its illegal to bring them to America. We want to tell people more about them. We were going to do a unicorn boat, but they arent real and the narwhal is.Ž Using a donated watermelon box from a grocery store, the team worked on their colorful boat for more than a week. At times the girls painted each other and made up a narwhal cheer. We looked like Smurfs,Ž Alex said. The blue was in our hair for a couple of weeks.Ž The narwhal girls werent the only ones to have fun preparing for Saturdays 26th annual Pioneer Days Card Board Boat races Saturday. Friends Kyan Cowell, 12, Atticus Randall, 10, Bradley Baker, 9 and Kyle Lackey, 9, spent hours trying to perfect the Scare Squad boat. We not only made our boat scary, but we are all wearing scary clown shirts we spray painted,Ž Cowell said. It is made out of lots and lots of cardboard.Ž The boat would eventually take second place in the age division. One of the few adults to compete in the race at Ann Dever Park pool Saturday were friends Colleen Stapleton and Heather Barry. The pair dawning bright red wigs looked as if they auditioned for a Wendys hamburger commercial. We work together at the Farr Law “rm so we thought we should design a boat called the Red Headed Step Sisters,Ž Stapleton said. We spent about 30 hours on our pink pony boat.Ž While in the water, the pair added plastic carrots to their ensemble as they paddled across the pool. The event was originally scheduled for its regular spot at Indian Mound Park. Due to red tide, it was moved into Charlotte County at the pool. Several of the 300 in attendance said it was great to see the pool for the “rst time. While red tide didnt ruin the event for residents Mike and Billie Jo Baxter, they wanted their boat to send a reminder of the persistent bloom thats wrecked summertime fun for thousands of local beach lovers. Their boat was bright green and blue and named Toxic.Ž Dalton Davenport (11) has been our boat racer for the last couple of years,Ž Billie Jo said. We wanted to be at Indian Mound Park and not a pool. We want our beaches back.Ž Another boat was named Make Florida Great AgainŽ referring to having clean water and safe beaches in the Sunshine state. Ovid Rawlins, 8, spent three weeks on his boat, but he had only began waterproo“ng it Friday. His parents joked about it hopefully not sinking.Ž Ovid, who is homeschooled, had several opportunities to compete against others in his age group. He even did a lap with his mom. The Englewood Fishing Club launched a boat navigated by different students for the past 12 years. This years participants Collin Morningstar and Austin Nottingham were both as old as the boat. As another 12-year-old, Ethan Wilson, started his race, he accidentally fell out of his purple boat, the S.S. Chaos. I meant to do it, no, not really,Ž Ethan said joking. I named the boat after my dog. It was fun. It was my “rst time. I won my “rst race.Ž Pioneer Days events continue today along Dearborn Street and Monday with a 9 a.m. Pioneer Days Parade which also travels down Dearborn Street. There is a day long festival following the parade.Email: eallen@sun-herald.comHundreds attend cardboard boat races SUN PHOTOS BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHThey call themselves the NARWALS girls and they proudly made a boat to bring awareness to Englewood about the Narwal giant whale.

I hadnt given much thought to this until I read a news report on the subject. The columnist reported that lower-priced homes had been outperforming higher-priced homes in terms of price appreciation. I decided to see if this trend also applies to Charlotte Countys, single-family home market. To do this, I created a software program that identi“ ed 126 homes that had one thing in common. All 126 homes sold twice. Once in 2014, and then again in 2017. I split the 2014 sales into 2 groups representing the lower-priced homesŽ and the higher-priced homesŽ. The lower-priced homes are the half that sold for less than the median sales price. The higher-priced homes are the half that sold for more than the median sales price. The median sales price is the price at which half the homes sold for more; half for less. The median sales price of the 63, lower-priced homes that sold in 2013 was $93,000. The median sales price of the 63, higher-priced homes that sold in the same year was $209,860. In 2017, these exact same homes sold again. This presents a wonderful, apples-to-apples comparison to determine which group of homes appreciated the mostthe lower-priced half, or the higher-priced half. This is referred to as paired-salesŽ analysis. Using the exact same homes, and comparing their sales prices over two time periods, strips out extraneous in” uences like changing consumer preferences. Heres the results: From 2013 to 2017, the median sales price of the lower-priced homes jumped from $93,000 to $159,500. Thats a 72 percent increase in value for the lower-priced homes. During that same time, the median sales price of the higher-priced homes jumped from $209,860 to $278,000. Thats a 32 percent increase in value for the higher-priced homes. So, in summary, analyzing the 126 homes that sold in 2013, and again in 2017, indicates that the lower-priced homes appreciated by 72 percent while the higher-priced homes appreciated 32 percent. This dovetails with the “ ndings of the columnist referenced in paragraph one. Yet, I was surprised by the wide variance in appreciation between the lower and higher-priced groups. Im not sure why this is, but here are some thoughts. Blackstone and other investment companies led a massive drive to buy lower-priced, often-distressed homes this decade throughout the country, including Charlotte County. Their business model was to rent these homes, and then sell them for a pro“ t once the market recovers. In hindsight, this was a smart move for quite a few reasons. Its easier to realize a positive cash-” ow on lower-priced homes purchased for rentals. Blackstone and others appeared on the scene very close to the market bottom. Their absorption of affordable homes put upward pressure on lower-priced homes. And the surge in short sales, bankruptcies, foreclosures, lost jobs, etc. turned many homeowners into renters at a time when rentals became increasingly scarce, as they still are today. In case youre curious why we used the years 2014 and 2017, its because our market had largely rebounded towards normalcy by 2014. 2017 is the most current full year. Also, by using a four-year time period, we minimize the impact of ” ipping since ” ippers typically resell their ” ips within 12 months of the purchase.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy ADRIAN D. GARCIABANKRATE.COMThe home equity picture in the United States looks pretty similar to what it did pre-recession. Collectively, homeowners have $15 trillion tucked away in their properties „ about a trillion and a half dollars north of the high mark before the recession, based on federal data. But this time around, people seem unwilling „ or unable „ to use their homes to come up with some extra cash. The percentage of people using their homes to secure loans remains exceptionally low. Some experts view the change in borrowing behavior as a sign that consumers are more financially savvy about avoiding the pitfalls of using home equity witnessed during the last housing boom. Homeowners held 4.2 million home equity loans and 10.3 million home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) collectively as of March, the lowest numbers in each category since at least the first quarter of 2008, according to Equifax. Cautiousness around using home equity „ the difference between how much the house is worth and any debts against the home „ is a smart move by consumers, says Greg McBride, CFA, chief financial analyst for Bankrate.com. The people that got into trouble by tapping home equity during the late stages of the last economic expansion were the people that werent timid at all,Ž McBride says. Those that were timid and hesitant were better protected when home prices fell.ŽHomes are not ATMsFrom 2003 to 2007, homeowners were extracting more than $350 billion per year to free up cash for a variety of purposes, from renovating the kitchen to purchasing a new car, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yorks Liberty Street Economists blog. There were a lot of people drinking the Kool-Aid of home prices will never decline,Ž McBride says. One of the consequences of that was people took out equity that evaporated a couple years later. Then they were on the hook for a loan, and thats why the percentage of underwater homeowners skyrocketed.Ž Home prices hit a high in February 2007 and then steadily fell until February 2012, a 35 percent drop, based on the S&P/Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index. Drilling down on exactly what people used equity for is tricky. In 2007, the U.S. Census Bureau released a brief showing the main reason people took out HELOCs in 2001 and 1991 was for home improvements. The second most popular reason, according to the brief based on the Residential Finance Survey, was debt consolidation. About 10 percent of HELOC borrowers indicated they used the equity they extracted from their homes to make a vehicle purchase, according to the census brief. Research from economists at the Federal Reserve Bank and a graduate student at the University of California-Los Angeles shows that home equity extraction funds about 1 to 2 percent of both new and used car purchases and was largely unchanged during and after the housing boom. Later research from the team shows some borrowers may have been using home equity to help make down payments and then turning to a traditional auto loan to cover the rest of the auto purchase.Home equitys untapped potentialHELOC balances have been steadily declining since 2010. Decreasing originations coupled with the decline in open accounts reaching their end of draw led to a 5.9 percent drop in balances in the second quarter of 2018 compared with the year prior, according to data from the latest TransUnion Industry Insights Report. Economists at the Federal Reserve suggest the decline in home equity is contributing to people spending less overall. The HELOC market presents a lot of potential for lenders, says Kristen Bataillon, senior manager of financial services research and consulting at TransUnion. Given that the percentage of borrowers with delinquencies is back at 2007 levels, market shrinkage is likely due to the lack of product promotion as opposed to lender caution. And given that homeowners equity prices are up, this really is an opportunity,Ž Bataillon said during a webinar Thursday.Smart ways to use home equityMcBride warns homeowners not to believe every dollar they use in home equity to add a new deck or make other home improvements will be added to the value of the home „ a $20,000 new kitchen in a $300,000 home doesnt necessarily make the property worth $320,000. And in the case of repairs like fixing a hail-damaged roof or dealing with termites, the money from home equity might go toward preserving the current value of the house. Using home equity to get debt under control could be advantageous because its possible to reduce interest costs and speed up debt repayment, McBride says. But its going to require a lot of discipline, and youre also going to have to have identified and solved the problem that produced that debt in the first place,Ž he says. If that debt came about from overspending, until you fix that problem, dont tap the home equity because whats going to happen is youre still going to have home equity debt youre paying on but you also would have gone out and run up the credit cards all over again.ŽHow to avoid the mistakes of the housing crash, use home equity wisely Custom Granite CountertopsLARGEST INVENTORY IN OUR AREA!!

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSOROver the years, the topic that has attracted the largest number of readers on my website is shopping for a mortgage. I just counted 70 articles on the subject, going back to the year 2000. There are many articles because shopping is a multi-stage process, with complexities and challenges arising at each stage. The multi-lender shopping facility on my site is designed to guide shoppers through the entire process. This article describes a quicker and simpler approach to mortgage shopping that was recently implemented „ the Quick Mortgage Shopper or QMS. It has emerged late in the development of my approach to mortgage shopping because one must know all the hazards of the main road before “nding a safe short cut. Though not for everyone, those who can use QMS will shop as effectively as those who go through the longer process, and spend much less time doing it.Simplifying assumptionsQMS skips three steps in the shopping process: € Determining whether the shopper quali“es. QMS assumes that she does. € Determining the preferred type of mortgage. The user must know the type of mortgage she wants beforehand. QMS requires the shopper to select a 30or 15-year FRM, or a 5/1, 7/1 or 10/1 ARM. € Determining the preferred combination of interest rate and lender points. QMS assumes the borrower wants the lowest interest rate at zero points and other fees. The borrower who wants to buy down the interest rate by paying points, and the borrower who needs a rebate from the lender to meet cash needs, should not use QMS. Another name for QMS is Rate Shopper.ŽAdjusting the rate for transaction featuresThe core feature of QMS is the calculation of a competitive rate that is unique to the shopper based on the features of the shoppers transaction that affect the rate. These features are the loan purpose, purchase price or property value, down payment, loan amount, property zip code, FICO score, type of property, type of occupancy, lock period and escrow waiver. The shoppers information is used to derive a nofee interest rate from each of the lenders who deliver prices to my web site, and the lowest of those rates is reported to the shopper. The shopping rate is thus a competitive rate that the shopper can use to shop anywhere. Since rates are reset every morning, shoppers who use the QMS to shop should refresh it every day, even after selecting a lender, until the lender selected locks the loan rate.Comparison to the CFPB shopping guideTo my knowledge, the only other mortgage-shopping guide is the Explore Interest RatesŽ tool provided by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Instead of a shopping rate that a competing lender should match or better, CFPB shows a distribution of rates, and leaves it to the shopper to decide which rate in the distribution is the lowest they can expect to “nd by shopping. For example, given the loan features I entered on August 21, CFPB told me that in Pennsylvania where I live, rates ranged from 4.5 percent to 5.75 percent with a clustering at 4.875 percent. Since there is no way to determine the reasons for the differences, this is not much help. Furthermore, where the rates posted on my site are updated daily, in line with market practice, the CFPB rates are updated on Wednesdays and Fridays only.

By KAYLA GLEASONSTAFF WRITERAs part of ongoing efforts to keep schools and everyone in them safe, some districts are considering a ban on large bags and backpacks at after-school events. Lee and Collier Counties have already implemented rules to prohibit bags, cans, coolers, weapons and more at sports events and other after-school activities in light of recent football game shootings in Jacksonville and Palm Beach County. Charlotte County „ which was recently voted safest school district in the state by niche. com „ is considering similar policies, though some students argue the new rules feasibility and effectiveness. In all honesty, I dont know how effective a backpack ban will be in keeping us safe. I dont think theres any harm, but it also seems to me that this measure is just another attempt to create an illusion of security,Ž said Port Charlotte High School student activist Sabrina Salovitz. My school has upped security measures, it has hired another School Resource Of“cer, its banned headphones in the hallways.Ž According to Salovitz, PCHS has already barred backpacks from its football games. Mike Riley, spokesperson for Charlotte County Public Schools, stated Principal Lou Long made an all-call on Friday to parents and guardians, informing them of the decision. For years in different instances individual schools have taken actions on their own. For instance, using a wand for admittance before homecoming or prom. Last year there was a threat at one of the football games and we had enhanced law-enforcement and a K9 present,Ž Riley said in an email. A district-wide ruling, in response to Lee and Collier counties bans, is currently in the works. We are presently working on a security policy and it will be ready early next week so parents can prepare.Ž Abigail Kirshy, a senior at Charlotte High School, believes the ruling would greatly bene“t campus security. I, personally, would not mind if the district made this choice. When I go to a game or any after-school activity, I usually wear a small cross-body bag or...a wallet on a lanyard. I can understand why the district would want to make the change and I think it would help improve school safety. We could be searched every time we walk into the gym... but they have chosen not to cross that personal boundary, maybe banning bags would be a positive move for student safety.Ž Sarasota County Schools is also in the process of reaching a decision. There will be adjustments made to our athletic security planning, but these are not in response to the incident in Jacksonville. These were updates that were already in progress since we are continually adding new team members to our school-based police force,Ž said Kelsey Whealy, Media Relations Specialist for SCS. As the school year „ and all its related games and activities „ get into full swing, parents and students should expect districts conversations on safety to continue.Email: kgleason@sun-herald.comBag bans at after-school events could become reality locally UPCOMING GAMEPort Charlotte Pirates vs. Lemon Bay Rays @ Port Charlotte High School Friday, Sept. 7 7:30 p.m. By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERPUNTA GORDA „ Dawn Lucas sat down to open a letter addressed to the Compass Center. It was handwritten from someone she knew when the individual was a teenager. But now that letter writer is in jail. I screwed up past my 18th birthday, but the staff at Compass made me realize my worth and value,Ž the letter reads. While it may not look like the typical picture of success, planting the seed is what keeps Lucas „ who is the director of Compass „ and other staffers at Compass Behavioral Healthcare Services going. Those are always the moments „ we cant reach them all, we cant save them all, but the positive feedback that we do get is just enough to keep going,Ž Lucas said. Compass serves as a center for teens 13-17 years old with mental health issues and drug addiction. They are currently serving boys and girls who come from across the state. They are a last-resort for every child there. We get kids from all over the area with low self-esteem, kids that have been involved in the juvenile justice system, kids who have committed felonies,Ž Lucas said. We have some pretty heinous crimes theyve committed and they come here and this is, again, a last resort where they think Okay Ive failed at everything else, this is my last stop. And we have staff here that are really invested in helping the kids.Ž Compass moved from Sarasota to Punta Gorda in 2010 and began “lling up due to the huge amount of need. However, there are two potential problems „ a child needs to voluntarily walk through the door and a parent or guardian has to bring them to the facility. For the families thats what we run into a lot „ they are fearful for their childs imminent death and they cant make them seek treatment because in this state a youth has a right to refuse treatment,Ž said Sandra Tanguay, program coordinator. We can get everything in motion and then the youth says Nope, not going to do to it.Ž There is also the issue of some parents not being on board, due to their own struggle with addiction. Thats a tricky one,Ž Tanguay said. I will talk to the youth for information, “nd out do they meet our criteria and ask Can I talk to your parent, would your parent talk to me? I have been lucky and been able to make contact with whoever that is. No matter what condition theyre in when I talk to them. But get (the parents) to where they get (the teenager) here and then theyre not in the picture „ but the youth is safe, secure and getting the help they need.Ž The teens in the center stay for 120 days. More than 90 percent of the patients stay the full time and there is a 60 percent success rate after they leave the program. What makes Compass work so well is letting the teens focus and work toward their future, according to Lucas. Whatever youve done to get here, youve pretty much lost all your privileges when you walk through the door...but it doesnt de“ne them, they can move past it,Ž Lucas said. And sometimes thinking outside the box, asking What are your goals? whether its a one-week goal, 30 day goal, 90 day goal. So it de“nitely helps them and it helps us.

(A few girls) all dyed their hair one week with their parent permission.Ž For many of the teens, it is the “rst time they have three meals a day and a safe bed to sleep in every night. It is also the “rst time they have to do their own laundry, give up their cellphones and vices. It is a daunting task for the 22 employees, which help ensure the center is manned 24/7. Thats just it, theyre not doing it for the paycheck because we are nonpro“t and the pay is much lower than other places, but theyre invested,Ž Lucas said. They know the children are the future and its such an under-served population. So whether its adults with other programs or here with the kids, theres a need and were just amazed we can “nd people who are invested as much as we are.Ž The biggest struggle, though, is ensuring the facility is kept up while trying to climb the evergrowing mountain of mental health cuts. Marlene Hauck, director of development for Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, said after a tragedy, funding will inevitably be shifted around „ but for the most part, it is not going to what they believe is best. Whenever an incident happens like Parkland or something like that, the state gets money and then they cut over here and over here so they can give money wherever they feel the band-aid needed,Ž she said. Theyre not forward thinkers. They want to put the band-aid on to solve the immediate problem but 10-15 years ago when the hospitals would say Oh my gosh, we dont want you to suffer in pain, let me give you this pill so you dont have to have pain. What did they think was going to happen 20 years from now when we have a room full of addicts?Ž However, the staff still have lofty goals and dreams not only for their patients, but the center itself. The recreation yard, which sits on 5 acres of property, has a dilapidated ropes course and ”ooding throughout. But eventually they want it “lled with hydroponic gardens, equipment which uses the teens own weight and animals. We already know when kids take care of something else it forms a sense of self worth,Ž Hauck said. So weve got the big dream going. Were talking with architects now of the different levels: what we really need now and then the next level and next level then the big dream.Ž As the staff continue on, they understand they c annot help every patient „ but also know what they are teaching has a deeper impact. All knowledge they gain here is good knowledge,Ž Tanguay said. You plant that seed, its always there.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.comCOMPASSFROM PAGE 5 Digital Sales Manager FLORIDA SUN NEWSPAPERS Career Opportunity The Sun Newspapers is seeking a highly motivated, self-starting digital professional to lead our digital sales operation.The primary responsibility of the Digital Sales Manager will be to work with upper management and Director of Digital content to increase digital advertising revenues by actively engaging with account executives and client visits.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD „ The 89-year-old Green Street Church will be prepared this week to make its 1-mile journey to the historic Lemon Bay Cemetery on South Indiana Avenue. The goal is to move the church at 2 a.m. Sept. 11. R.E. Johnson & Sons, a specialized house mover based out of Parrish in Manatee County, is scheduled to be in Englewood all next week preparing the church for its journey. The church will proceed east on West Green Street, then south on Indiana Avenue (State Road 776) to the cemetery at walking speed,Ž between 2-5 mph. Comcast and Florida Power & Light crews will accompany the church, removing then reconnecting overhead utility lines along the route. The move should take about four hours or more to complete. Englewoods Leo P”iger Construction is overseeing the move for the Lemon Bay Historical Society, the owners of the church, but other Englewood companies „ such as Castle Air Heating and Cooling and Michael J. Looney Electric „ have lent a hand to prepare the church for its move. The historic church is Englewoods “rst house of worship. It is now on property the Historical Society leased from the Crosspoint Church of the Nazarene on West Green Street. The Historical Society bought its own property at the cemetery so the church has a forever home.Ž Moving the church is not inexpensive. Historical society members have $170,000 set aside for the move. They received grants from the Sarasota County Alliance for Historical Preservation and William G. and Marie Selby Foundation. Sarasota County commissioners agreed with the Englewood Community Redevelopment Area Advisory Board to commit $50,000 to the move and an additional $50,000 as a matching grant. But when all the expenses are added up, members anticipate they may have to borrow $50,000 or more for the church to settle into its location at the cemetery. Though its no longer a house of worship, the Green Street Church still serves the community. The Historical Society regularly schedules community events, weddings and memorial services at the church, which is tucked away from main thoroughfares on West Green Street. Members of the Historical Society hope the churchs new, more-visible home on State Road 776, near the Englewood Chamber of Commerce and the Englewood Fire Districts Station 1, will lead to more events and community appreciation. For more information, visit lemonbayhistory. com or call 941-4738491. Donations for the church move can be made online or mailed to Lemon Bay Hi storical Society, P.O. Box 1245, Englewood FL 34295.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comHistoric Englewood church prepares for move SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYThe picket fence and other amenities at the historic Green Street Church are packed away as the Lemon Bay Historical Society prepares for its move Sept. 11 to the historic Lemon Bay Cemetery on State Road 776. By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERPUNTA GORDA „ The land purchase agreement for The Buckleys Pass project „ formerly the PGI Bird Section Cut Through and/or Additional Harbor Access project „ has been approved, allowing city of“cials to “nalize the transaction. The pass will cut through an existing mixed wetland and upland area, connecting the Punta Gorda Isles canal system to Alligator Creek and leading to Charlotte Harbor. The property involved includes 4.24 acres of wetland and removal of 0.38 acres of mangroves. By approving the land purchase, the city agrees to pay Robert McQueen, trustee for the property, in the amount of $440,000, according to documents in Wednesdays City Council meeting agenda. As part of the deal, the City Council also approved the sale of city-owned property at 5625 Taylor Road to McQueen for $40,000 to be placed in a special-use fund. We have no idea when the purchase will go through,Ž said Mark Gering, the citys public works engineering manager. By passing the agreement, the city can now move forward with the steps necessary to purchase the property. Everybody still needs to be patient,Ž said City Manager Howard Kunik. We have a lot of work still to do.Ž Some of that work will keep the project at a paperwork level until at least February or March of 2019. We have to put together all of the parcels that are going to be included in the assessment,Ž said Kunik. We have to make sure that we double check so that each parcel ... based on the methodology that we approved ... how many water access units will be allowed or permitted, allowed to be built per parcel.Ž That information then has to be sent to Charlotte County so they can start formulating the assessment district, according to Kunik, which has to be done before December 2018. During that time, the city will be working with attorneys who helped develop the methodology behind the project to put together an assessment resolution. (This is) similar to an ordinance resolution. We will advertise that and hold a public hearing for the assessment probably in the February (or) March time fr ame when (all the residents are) back and in town. So thats February/ March (2019) to hold a formal assessment hearing.Ž The city has been involved in the project since July 2013, however, a citizens group has worked on the project years before the city even became involved. We thought it would be done in two years. Five or six years later, were getting there,Ž said Bill Stamp, a PGI Bird Section resident and long-time advocate for the project. The new name for the project, Buckleys Pass, was in honor of one Punta Gorda resident, Jay Buckley, who was a major part of moving the project along.

ZUSMAN, M.D., FACSZUSMAN EYE CARE CENTERSeptember is Healthy Aging Month and it is important to know about maintaining healthy vision. Vision problems such as glaucoma, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy are common among older adults. You cant prevent your eyes from aging, but you can slow age-related damage by taking care of your eye health. The following 10 tips can help you take care of your eyes and preserve clear vision: GET REGULAR EYE EXAMS. Starting at age 40, get periodic eye exams where your eye doctor will look for signs of glaucoma and retinal diseases, even if youre a healthy adult with no vision problems. Many common eye diseases often have no warning signs. A dilated eye exam is the only way to detect such diseases in their early stage. People who have certain medical conditions that increase the risk of eye disorders, such as diabetes or hypertension, or those who have vision problems should see an eye care professional earlier than 40. Based on your risk factors and the initial “ndings of your exam, your eye doctor will recommend the appropriate screening intervals that will help maintain healthy vision. KNOW YOUR FAMILYS EYE HEALTH HISTORY. Talk to your family members about their eye health history. Its important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with a disease or condition since many are hereditary. This will help determine if you are at higher risk for developing an eye disease or condition. WEAR SUNGLASSES WITH UV PROTECTION. The suns ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage aging eyes. UV rays can cause skin cancer on the lids and surface of the eye, cataracts, and possibly accelerate macular degeneration. The best way to protect eyes from the sun is with sunglasses that block out virtually 100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation. WEAR A HAT. When you are outdoors for any length of time, especially in Florida, a wide-brimmed hat is protective. This will give added protection to your face and eyes in addition to sunglasses. EAT RIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR SIGHT. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy. Such foods contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Research also suggests there are eye health bene“ts from Health & Hope DanMEARNSC By KAREN DSOUZATHE MERCURY NEWS (TNS)In our youth-obsessed culture, where ageism has never been stronger and looking younger is next to godliness, it may be easy to assume young people feel happier than older ones. Nope. According to science, at least one thing gets better with age and thats your self-esteem. In fact, a paper published recently in the journal Psychological Bulletin, self-esteem seems to peak around age 60 and that uplifting feeling may well last for an entire decade. So maybe 60 really is the new 40? Midlife is, for many adults, a TIME of highly stable life circumstances in domains such as relationships and work. Moreover, during middle adulthood, most individuals further invest in the social roles they hold, which might promote their self-esteem,Ž study co-author Ulrich Orth, a professor of psychology at the University of Bern in Switzerland, told TIME. For example, people take on managerial roles at work, maintain a satisfying relationship with their spouse or partner, and help their children to become responsible and independent adults.Ž Researchers examined 191 articles about self-esteem, which included data from almost 165,000 people, for a comprehensive look at how self-esteem changes with age, exploring different demographics and age groups. Apparently, self-esteem begins to rise between ages 4 and 11, as children develop and revel in a sense of independence. Those feelings level off in the teenage years and hold steady until mid-adolescence. After that, self-esteem grows substantially until age 30, then more gradually throughout At what age is your self-esteem at its highest? DREAMSTIMEA recent study suggests self-esteem peaks around age 60.PROVIDED BY MCCIn the not-so-distant past, extended families frequently lived in close proximity to one another. Such families shared meals and experiences and essentially grew up together. Nowadays, families separate for various reasons, such as job opportunities and cost of living concerns. While there are advantages to spreading out, there are also some disadvantages, namely that grandparents and grandchildren may not see one another frequently enough. Even though people of different age groups may not entirely have the same interests, the interactions between generations can bene“t both young people and their aging relatives.Finding renewed vigorSenior living and active lifestyle communities provide invaluable care and amenities for seniors. While being around like-minded individuals can be handy, its also limiting.

The Arizona senator, who died Aug. 25, had announced to the world on Aug. 24, that he was stopping treatment after a year while the former president was declared cancer-free just four months after he started therapy in 2015. How could these two men with household names have such opposite outcomes? The answer, said Dr. Ezra Cohen, associate director of Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego, has to do with the speci“c physical and genetic characteristics involved. Carters brain tumor was caused by metastatic melanoma which started in a distant part of the 39th presidents body and traveled to his brain. McCains tumor is a malignancy called a glioblastoma, the most common kind of brain tumor. For most of human history, both metastatic melanoma and glioblastoma had similarly dire prognoses. Most patients didnt live more than a few years after diagnosis. But the advent of immunotherapy drugs has dramatically changed the survival odds for melanoma. Metastatic melanoma, due to immunotherapy, is now on the complete other end of the spectrum from glioblastoma,Ž Cohen said. Were now seeing melanoma patients who are nearly a decade from treatment and are still showing no signs of recurrence. Were beginning to think that these patients are cured.Ž Not so for glioblastoma. Survival after diagnosis continues to range from one to two years. Why hasnt glioblastoma seen the same kind of progress? Cohen said it all comes down to mutation. Melanoma, Cohen noted, has a highly mutated form of cancer which has made it one of the toughest forms of to treat once it spreads from its initial location. But having a high mutation rate also makes it more likely that melanoma cells will be detected and responded to by the bodys immune system. Mutation just makes it more likely that there will be all sorts of abnormal features on the outside of melanoma cells that the bodys immune system will recognize as foreign and attack. New checkpointŽ immunotherapies such as Keytruda, the drug that produced Carters miraculous recovery, rev up the response of immune systems of patients that cancer cells have tricked into semi-dormancy. But other forms of cancer such as glioblastoma have fewer mutations, and fewer abnormal features that set off immune system alarms. Revving up the immune system, Cohen noted, doesnt do much good if it has not adequately detected the cancer in the “rst place. Glioblastoma has 100-fold less mutation than melanoma does, and that makes it a poorer target for these drugs,Ž Cohen said. Though the checkpoint inhibitors that are getting dramatic results in many forms of cancer have signi“cantly less effect for glioblastoma, some think they may actually be capable of some change. Though initial trials have shown poor results, some researchers have speculated that what looks like continued growth after immunotherapy treatment may actually be the in”ammation that indicates a strong immune response. A large trial is currently underway to determine the exact effect of checkpoint inhibitors on glioblastoma while other smaller trials are attempting to target these tumors based on other unique characteristics they possess. Sharp HealthCares Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute is one of 215 organizations worldwide enrolling patients in a trial that uses a special type of receptor that pops up on about half of glioblastoma cells to target a cancer-killing drug. Early-phase trials are also starting to show tantalizing results using cancer-killing viruses and vaccines. Dr. Charles Redfern of the Amtower Institute said it has been dif“cult seeing some patients bene“t while others continue to suffer. But he noted that, with melanoma, there were many years of small advances before the sudden sea change brought by the latest crop of drugs. I have a patient like Jimmy Carter where his disease has pretty much gone into remission. We would love to that that same kind of result in glioblastoma,Ž Redfern said.Why did Jimmy Carter and John McCain have such different brain tumor results? CARTER MCCAINBy GREGORY WHYTEFITNESS CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYWhen performed correctly, the seated forward bend is capable of providing a number of important bene“ts. In addition to facilitating spinal ”exibility, this exercise stimulates the kidneys, pancreas and liver. It also relieves constipation and gas, tones the abdominal muscles and improves digestion. Although it offers some of the bene“ts provided by inversion exercises such as the headstand, these bene“ts are somewhat limited. Within the Fusion One system, quite a number of inversion exercises exist. Some are more dif“cult than others to perform. Now, although the headstand could be considered the most popular inversion exercise, one that is used quite often by people who are incapable of performing it is the standing forward bend. This exercise, although it lacks inversion bene“tsŽ such as spinal decompression and minimal obstruction of blood ”ow to the upper extremities, will help ensure good health and avoid premature aging. Some of the speci“c bene“ts are the following: € Relieves stress € Helps with depression € Stimulates healthy hair € Facilitates spinal ”exibility € Helps to improve eye function € Tones the abdominal muscles € Improves digestion € Helps improve breathing € Stretches the posterior (back) muscles of the legs When learning to perform the standing forward bend, it is best to do so by “rst assuming the seated version (see photo). Sit comfortably in a chair while ensuring that your feet are about a shoulder width apart. Next, you bend the upper body forward and lower it between both legs. Continue lowering the body towards the floor. At the same time, reach for the floor with your hands and allow the fingers or palms to make contact if possible. Hold the position for as long as comfortably possible as you breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically thr ough your nose. To progress to the standing version (see photo above), you simply raise your buttocks from the chair and proceed to straighten your legs. If possible, the hands or finger tips should maintain contact with the floor. Once again, its important that you hold the position for as long as comfortably possible as you breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically through your nose. When ready, return your buttocks to the chair and raise the upper body back to the star ting position. Fusion One and other exercise classes will start the week of Sept. 24. Registration is underway.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3By KAREN KAPLANLOS ANGELES TIMESYou know its important to eat right, exercise and keep your cholesterol under control to reduce your risk of a heart attack of stroke. If thats not enough of an incentive, new research suggests that taking care of your cardiovascular system will pay off for your brain as well. A study of more than 6,600 senior citizens found that the better they scored on seven measures of cardiovascular health, the lower their risk of dementia over the ensuing years. The difference was dramatic: Among those with the lowest scores, dementia developed at a rate of 13.3 cases per 100 people. But among those with the highest scores, there were only 7.1 cases per 100 people. The results, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, should prompt doctors and patients alike to focus on cardiovascular fitness for the sake of preserving cognitive health, experts said. To achieve a lifetime of robust brain health free of dementia, it is never too early or too late to strive for attainment of idea cardiovascular health,Ž Dr. Jeffrey Saver, a leader of the UCLA Stroke Center, and Dr. Mary Cushman of the University of Vermont wrote in an editorial that accompanies the study. Given the aging population, this positive health message is important to communicate to all members of society.Ž There have already been many clues that vascular problems can translate into brain problems. Narrowed, blocked or leaky blood vessels can lead to strokes, which are the No. 2 cause of dementia (after Alzheimers disease). Observational studies have turned up connections between cardiovascular conditions in midlife and cognitive conditions in late life. The new study adds to the picture by focusing on adults who are already in their senior years. The data came from the Three-City Study, a research effort from France that enrolled residents of Bordeaux, Dijon and Montpellier. All of the participants were at least 65 years old when they enrolled in the study (their average age was 73.7 years). Upon joining, they were given a battery of physical and cognitive tests. For the JAMA report, the researchers focused on seven metrics of cardiovascular health that the American Heart Assn. call Lifes Simple 7. Four of the metrics are behavioral (diet, exercise, weight management and smoking status) and three are biological (blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol). Study participants were given a score of 0, 1 or 2 for each of the categories, to reflect whether their compliance with the AHAs targets was poor,Ž intermediateŽ or optimal.Ž For example, to earn two points for a healthy diet, people had to eat at least one portion of fresh fruit, one portion of raw vegetables, and one portion of cooked fruit or vegetables each day, plus at least two portions of fish each week. To earn two points for weight, they had to have a body mass index under 25; to earn two points for blood pressu re, they needed a reading below 120/80 mm Hg without the assistance of medication. High scores were ra re. Only 6.5 percent of study participants had optimal measurements for at least five of the seven categories. At the other end of the spectrum, 36.4 percent of participants received optimal scores in no more than two categories. The 6,626 seniors in the study were tracked for an average of 8.5 years. During that time, 745 of them were diagnosed with dementia. The risk wasnt the same for everyone. Among those with optimal levels for none or just one of the seven metrics, the diagnosis rate was 1.76 dementia cases per 100 person-years (a measure that accounts for the number of people in the study and the length of time they participated). For each additional metric that was at optimal levels, the risk of dementia fell by about 10 percent. The study authors put it like this: Imagine a 73-year-old man who has a low level of education and does not carry a well-known genetic variant linked with an increased risk of Alzheimers disease. If this man did not meet any of the AHA standards, it would take about six years for his global cognitive level to fall by one standard unit.Ž However, if he met all seven of the AHA standards, it would take twice as long for his cognitive level to decline by the same amount. The authors acknowledged that getting people to upgrade from poor to optimal status on Lifes Simple 7 would be challenging.Ž Simply motivating them to reach intermediateŽ status would be much more doable, and still quite valuable, they wrote. However, the study did not track changes in peoples cardiovascular health over time, so there was no way to know whether improving ones cardiovascular health was associated with a lower dementia risk, they added.

The four-location pediatric/ adult dermatological facility was named number four out of 40 “rms that make up said category. The list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend and is now available at FloridaTrend.com. This is the second consecutive year that Florida Skin Center earned a spot on the top 100 lineup of small, medium and large employers. Last year, Florida Skin Center was named number 36 out of 37 “rms. Florida Skin Centers 2018 results were based on a two-part assessment „ an Employer Bene“ts & Policies Questionnaire and an Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey „conducted by Florida Trends Best Companies Group. For the “rst time, the questionnaire largely consisted of yes/no questions for a quicker turnaround, and the survey required respondents to include their birth year as a way of categorizing employee responses by generational groupings, such as millennials and baby boomers. As always, the questionnaire was distributed to collect information about company policies, practices and demographics, while the survey consisted of statements to be answered on a “vepoint agreement scale, as well as open-ended and demographics questions. Based on the size of the company, Best Companies Group analyzed and categorized all Florida Skin Center employees, according to a list of eight core focus areas. They ranged from leadership and planning, to corporate culture and communications, to role satisfaction, and work environment. Also, results from the questionnaire and survey were still combined and analyzed for ranking purposes. Florida Skin Center was eligible for consideration, since it is a privately held, for-pro“t business in the State of Florida, with 40 employees, for the past 17 years. This honor comes less than three months after the opening of Florida Skin Centers fourth location in Punta Gorda, as well as less than one month after completing 971 free skin examinations. These complimentary skin checks resulted in 44 skin cancer detections and “ve melanoma discoveries. We stood out among hundreds of small businesses across the state, af“rming just how proud our employees are to work here and how much they are able to exercise their dermatological skillset, along with their levels of community engagement,Ž said Anais Aurora Badia, M.D., D.O., Founder. Florida Skin Centers employee roster and patient portal is growing before our very eyes, and for-pro“t and nonpro“t efforts will only climb from here.Ž The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5PROVIDED BY MCCAs men and women age, various factors may affect their ability to drive. In addition to issues with memory, seniors may have failing eyesight and physical limitations, and their reaction time may slow down. In such instances, seniors ability to safely operate a motor vehicle may be questioned. Age alone is not a reliable measure of driving ability, but many of the issues that affect ones ability to safely drive a vehicle tend to appear as men and women near their golden years. Losing the ability to safely operate an automobile can greatly reduce a persons independence. That is why periodic driver evaluations may be met with some reluctance. Aging men and women who dont want to avoid potential con”icts with concerned family members can take their own steps to ensure they maintain their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.Schedule a driving-safety evaluationWhen drivers abilities to operate a motor vehicle become suspect, a thorough evaluation should be scheduled. The evaluation should not be handled by a family physician or family member, but by an unbiased third party like a Certi“ed Driving Rehabilitation Specialist. This is a therapist who has special certi“cation to assist people with disabilities, including older adults, with driving. They can help individuals with adaptive equipment or techniques if driving issues stem from something that can be addressed.Figure out if the car fits the individualA program called CarFit can help drivers assess if their car is suited to their abilities. A team of trained technicians and/ or health professionals work with participants to ensure their vehicles are equipped for maximum safety and comfort. A properly adjusted vehicle is as important as ones cognitive and physical abilities. Adjustments can include mirror placement, good foot positioning and sitting at the proper distance from the steering wheel. People can learn about an upcoming event at www.car-“t.org.Take a driver-improvement courseDriver improvement courses are provided by various organizations, including some insurance companies. AARP also has a Driver Safety Course to lower the risk of traf“c violations, collisions and injuries. Completion of these courses can help drivers enhance their abilities behind the wheel and may result in lower premiums for mature drivers.Keep the mind and body fitRegular exercise and a healthy diet can be assets for mature drivers. Mental “tness techniques and brain exercises can improve reaction time, while aerobic and strength-training workouts can keep the body in shape. Driving is one of the key avenues to personal independence. Strengthening seniors driving abilities is a goal of many organizations.Help senior drivers maintain their independencePHOTO PROVIDEDA properly adjusted vehicle is as important as ones cognitive and physical abilities. middle adu lthood, before peaking around age 60. Unfortunately, sometime after age 70, it seems to take a hit, a factor which gets more worrying as you approach 90. It should also be noted that women tended to have lower self-esteem than men in young adulthood, but gain parity as the decades wear on. Sadly, it also appears that people in happy relationships experience the same drop in self-esteem during old age as people in unhappy relationships. So much for romantic bliss. Although they enter old age with higher self-esteem and continue to have higher self-esteem as they age, they decline in self-esteem to the same extent as people in unhappy relationships,Ž said co-author Kali H. Trzesniewski, PhD, of the University of Western Ontario, as the American Psychological Association noted. Thus, being in a happy relationship does not protect a person against the decline in self-esteem that typically occurs in old age.Ž The upside is that the years between 60 and 70, generally speaking, appear to be as golden as they have been made out to be.AGEFROM PAGE 1 also can spark interesting conversation, and all parties involved can learn something from one another.Planning for the futureYounger generations may not understand the concept of hard timesŽ or doing withoutŽ like a person who has lived through various ups and downs. Passing along advice about economic cycles, saving for the future and maintaining stability is one area of expertise at which many seniors excel.Practicing interpersonal skillsAll the technological savviness in the world cannot compensate for the power of strong interpersonal skills. Being able to address a group of people or speak one-on-one is essential in the workplace and in life. When younger generations speak to older adults, they may become stronger at verbal discourse and have greater perspective of different points of conversation.Learning new technologyYounger generations can impart knowledge of technological devices to older adults. People with skills are usually happy to share their knowledge. Even if seniors arent ready to purchase tablets or smartphones, they may be excited to have their grandchildren teach them about the latest gadgets.Providing sense of purposeBoth seniors and younger generations can realize a greater sense of purpose when interacting with one another. That person may be the reason the other one greets the day with a smile. Visits from grandchildren can reduce the liklihood of isolation and depression in older adults. And younger generations can discover the benefits of personal social interaction rather than communicating exclusively through social media apps. Fostering intergenerational connections is a great way to broaden social circles, improve communication and learn new things.LEARNFROM PAGE 1 eating “sh high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna and halibut. MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. If you are having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, talk to your doctor. CONSIDER A MULTIVITAMIN. Vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, E and the mineral zinc have been shown to promote eye health. In fact, in patients with moderate to severe age-related macular degeneration, a certain vitamin combination has been found to help prevent progression of the disease. This “nding was based on the Age Related Eye Disease Study 1 and 2 (AREDS 1 and 2) which took many years to complete. The latest formula recommended is known as Preservision containing the AREDS 2 formula. STOP SMOKING. Smoking is linked to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness. WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home. Protective eyewear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards specially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity. Most protective eyewear lenses are made of a safety plastic, such as polycarbonate, which is a much stronger material and does not shatter. GIVE YOUR EYES A REST. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing at any one distance, you sometimes forget to blink, resulting in dryness and eye fatigue. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eyestrain. CLEAN YOUR HANDS AND YOUR CONTACT LENSES PROPERLY. To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as appropriate. You cant stop time, but you can take care of your eyes so that they remain healthy as you age. Having clear vision is possible at any age! The National Eye Institute (NEI), one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the federal governments principal agency for vision research, offers additional eye health information and tips for people to protect their vision as they age. Visit nei.nih.gov/agingeye to learn more. Neil B. Zusman, MD, FACS specializes in no needle, no stitch, no patch cataract surgery. He also offers comprehensive eye care including evaluation and treatment of glaucoma, evaluation of diabetes and macular degeneration, laser eye surgery, eyelid surgery and reconstruction, contact lenses, and exams for children and adults. There is an optical shop and a licensed optician on the premises offering the latest styles in glasses. Dr. Zusman is a board certi“ed ophthalmologist and a consultant for the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Department of Housing & Urban Development estimates that in January 2017, over 40,000 veterans are more likely to be homeless each night. As recently as 2014, an average of 20 veterans died from suicide each day. These brave men and women need a listening ear, and they need to know that Gods grace is still with them.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7By ESE OLUMHENSECHICAGO TRIBUNEAfter advising the public to avoid the nasal-spray version of the ”u vaccine for the past two years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now giving it the green light. A favorite of the needle-averse, the spray did not appear to work as well against H1N1, a strain of the flu, in the past few seasons, the CDC said. But its expected to work better this year, said the CDC and Dr. Andrew Pavia, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Utah Hospital. Its an encouraging sign, especially after an especially severe flu season. The CDC said this year that more than 172 children died of flu-related illness in the 2017-18 season, the highest on record in a single season. Last year we had a very bad flu season,Ž Pavia said. The vast majority of deaths were in people who did not get the vaccine.Ž The vaccine formula for H3N2, responsible for much of the damageŽ last season, has also been tweaked, he said. The CDC is recommending those with severe egg allergies to get any version of the vaccine. Previously, some with egg allergies had to be careful to avoid egg-based vaccines, or to get the vaccines administered at sites that could monitor them for allergic reactions. This is the second year the CDC has made the recommendation, Dr. Pavia said.CDC approves nasal-spray vaccine for flu season TNS PHOTOBrayden Yee of Shoreline, Washington, receives a dose of FluMist from a Bartell Drugs pharmacist.€ Englewood Beach: Daily at 8:30 a.m.; and Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. 941-473-0135. € Manasota Beach: Monday-Saturday at 8 a.m. € Venice Beach Pavilion: Monday-Thursday at 7:30 p.m. € North Jetty, Nokomis Beach Yoga: 9 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday € Pop Up Yoga classes at local business led by The Yoga Sanctuary will be held all throughout the summer.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCAging is associated with or linked to a host of mental and physical side effects. For example, many adults expect their vision to deteriorate as they grow older. Such a side effect can be combatted with routine eye examinations that may indicate a need for a stronger eyeglass prescription, a relatively simple solution that wont impact adults daily lives much at all. While physical side effects like diminished vision might not strike much fear in the hearts of aging men and women, those same people may be concerned and/ or frightened by the notion of age-related cognitive decline. Some immediately associate such decline with Alzheimers disease, an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys memory and cognitive skills, ultimately compromising a persons ability to perform even the simplest of tasks. But age-related cognitive decline is not always symptomatic of Alzheimers disease. Learning about Alzheimers and how to maintain mental acuity can help aging men and women better understand the changes their brains might be undergoing as they near or pass retirement age.Is Alzheimers disease hereditary?The National Institute on Aging notes that only a very rare form of Alzheimers disease is inherited. Early-onset familial Alzheimers disease, or FAD, is caused by mutations in certain genes. If these genes are passed down from parent to child, then the child is likely, but not certain, to get FAD. So while many adults may be concerned about Alzheimers because one of their parents had the disease, the NIA notes that the majority of Alzheimers cases are late-onset, which has no obvious family pattern. Can Alzheimers disease be prevented? Studies of Alzheimers disease are ongoing, but to date there is no definitive way to prevent the onset of the disease.How can I maintain mental acuity as I age?Researchers have not yet determined a way to prevent Alzheimers disease, but adults can take certain steps to maintain their mental acuity into retirement. € Exercise regularly. Routine exercise may be most associated with physical benefits, but the NIA notes that such activity has been linked to benefits for the brain as well. For example, a 2011 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America found that aerobic exercise training increases the size of the hippocampus, leading to improvements in spatial memory. The NIA also notes that one study indicated exercise stimulated the brains ability to maintain old network connections and make new ones vital to cognitive health. € Read more. Avid readers may be happy to learn that one of their favorite pastimes can improve the efficiency of their cognitive systems while delaying such systems decline. A 2013 study published in the journal Neurology by researchers at Chicagos Rush University Medical Center found that mentally active lifestyles may not prevent the formations of plaques and tangles associated with Alzheimers disease, but such lifestyles decreases the likelihood that the presence of plaques or tangles will impair cognitive function. € Stay socially connected. Maintaining social connections with family, friends and community members also can help women prevent cognitive decline. Epidemiologist Bryan James of the Rush Alzheimers Disease Center studied how social activity affected cognitive decline, ultimately noting that the rate of cognitive decline was considerably lower among men and women who maintained social contact than it was among those with low levels of social activity. The idea of agerelated cognitive decline strikes fear in the hearts of many men and women, but there are ways for adults to maintain their mental acuity well into their golden years.How aging adults can maintain their mental acuity PHOTO PROVIDEDMaintaining social connections can help aging men and women prevent cognitive decline.

ZUSMAN, M.D., FACSZUSMAN EYE CARE CENTERSeptember is Healthy Aging Month and it is important to know about maintaining healthy vision. Vision problems such as glaucoma, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy are common among older adults. You cant prevent your eyes from aging, but you can slow age-related damage by taking care of your eye health. The following 10 tips can help you take care of your eyes and preserve clear vision: GET REGULAR EYE EXAMS. Starting at age 40, get periodic eye exams where your eye doctor will look for signs of glaucoma and retinal diseases, even if youre a healthy adult with no vision problems. Many common eye diseases often have no warning signs. A dilated eye exam is the only way to detect such diseases in their early stage. People who have certain medical conditions that increase the risk of eye disorders, such as diabetes or hypertension, or those who have vision problems should see an eye care professional earlier than 40. Based on your risk factors and the initial “ndings of your exam, your eye doctor will recommend the appropriate screening intervals that will help maintain healthy vision. KNOW YOUR FAMILYS EYE HEALTH HISTORY. Talk to your family members about their eye health history. Its important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with a disease or condition since many are hereditary. This will help determine if you are at higher risk for developing an eye disease or condition. WEAR SUNGLASSES WITH UV PROTECTION. The suns ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage aging eyes. UV rays can cause skin cancer on the lids and surface of the eye, cataracts, and possibly accelerate macular degeneration. The best way to protect eyes from the sun is with sunglasses that block out virtually 100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation. WEAR A HAT. When you are outdoors for any length of time, especially in Florida, a wide-brimmed hat is protective. This will give added protection to your face and eyes in addition to sunglasses. EAT RIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR SIGHT. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy. Such foods contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Research also suggests there are eye health bene“ts from Health & Hope DanMEARNSC By KAREN DSOUZATHE MERCURY NEWS (TNS)In our youth-obsessed culture, where ageism has never been stronger and looking younger is next to godliness, it may be easy to assume young people feel happier than older ones. Nope. According to science, at least one thing gets better with age and thats your self-esteem. In fact, a paper published recently in the journal Psychological Bulletin, self-esteem seems to peak around age 60 and that uplifting feeling may well last for an entire decade. So maybe 60 really is the new 40? Midlife is, for many adults, a TIME of highly stable life circumstances in domains such as relationships and work. Moreover, during middle adulthood, most individuals further invest in the social roles they hold, which might promote their self-esteem,Ž study co-author Ulrich Orth, a professor of psychology at the University of Bern in Switzerland, told TIME. For example, people take on managerial roles at work, maintain a satisfying relationship with their spouse or partner, and help their children to become responsible and independent adults.Ž Researchers examined 191 articles about self-esteem, which included data from almost 165,000 people, for a comprehensive look at how self-esteem changes with age, exploring different demographics and age groups. Apparently, self-esteem begins to rise between ages 4 and 11, as children develop and revel in a sense of independence. Those feelings level off in the teenage years and hold steady until mid-adolescence. After that, self-esteem grows substantially until age 30, then more gradually throughout At what age is your self-esteem at its highest? DREAMSTIMEA recent study suggests self-esteem peaks around age 60.PROVIDED BY MCCIn the not-so-distant past, extended families frequently lived in close proximity to one another. Such families shared meals and experiences and essentially grew up together. Nowadays, families separate for various reasons, such as job opportunities and cost of living concerns. While there are advantages to spreading out, there are also some disadvantages, namely that grandparents and grandchildren may not see one another frequently enough. Even though people of different age groups may not entirely have the same interests, the interactions between generations can bene“t both young people and their aging relatives.Finding renewed vigorSenior living and active lifestyle communities provide invaluable care and amenities for seniors.

The Arizona senator, who died Aug. 25, had announced to the world on Aug. 24, that he was stopping treatment after a year while the former president was declared cancer-free just four months after he started therapy in 2015. How could these two men with household names have such opposite outcomes? The answer, said Dr. Ezra Cohen, associate director of Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego, has to do with the speci“c physical and genetic characteristics involved. Carters brain tumor was caused by metastatic melanoma which started in a distant part of the 39th presidents body and traveled to his brain. McCains tumor is a malignancy called a glioblastoma, the most common kind of brain tumor. For most of human history, both metastatic melanoma and glioblastoma had similarly dire prognoses. Most patients didnt live more than a few years after diagnosis. But the advent of immunotherapy drugs has dramatically changed the survival odds for melanoma. Metastatic melanoma, due to immunotherapy, is now on the complete other end of the spectrum from glioblastoma,Ž Cohen said. Were now seeing melanoma patients who are nearly a decade from treatment and are still showing no signs of recurrence. Were beginning to think that these patients are cured.Ž Not so for glioblastoma. Survival after diagnosis continues to range from one to two years. Why hasnt glioblastoma seen the same kind of progress? Cohen said it all comes down to mutation. Melanoma, Cohen noted, has a highly mutated form of cancer which has made it one of the toughest forms of to treat once it spreads from its initial location. But having a high mutation rate also makes it more likely that melanoma cells will be detected and responded to by the bodys immune system. Mutation just makes it more likely that there will be all sorts of abnormal features on the outside of melanoma cells that the bodys immune system will recognize as foreign and attack. New checkpointŽ immunotherapies such as Keytruda, the drug that produced Carters miraculous recovery, rev up the response of immune systems of patients that cancer cells have tricked into semi-dormancy. But other forms of cancer such as glioblastoma have fewer mutations, and fewer abnormal features that set off immune system alarms. Revving up the immune system, Cohen noted, doesnt do much good if it has not adequately detected the cancer in the “rst place. Glioblastoma has 100-fold less mutation than melanoma does, and that makes it a poorer target for these drugs,Ž Cohen said. Though the checkpoint inhibitors that are getting dramatic results in many forms of cancer have signi“cantly less effect for glioblastoma, some think they may actually be capable of some change. Though initial trials have shown poor results, some researchers have speculated that what looks like continued growth after immunotherapy treatment may actually be the in”ammation that indicates a strong immune response. A large trial is currently underway to determine the exact effect of checkpoint inhibitors on glioblastoma while other smaller trials are attempting to target these tumors based on other unique characteristics they possess. Sharp HealthCares Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute is one of 215 organizations worldwide enrolling patients in a trial that uses a special type of receptor that pops up on about half of glioblastoma cells to target a cancer-killing drug. Early-phase trials are also starting to show tantalizing results using cancer-killing viruses and vaccines. Dr. Charles Redfern of the Amtower Institute said it has been dif“cult seeing some patients bene“t while others continue to suffer. But he noted that, with melanoma, there were many years of small advances before the sudden sea change brought by the latest crop of drugs. I have a patient like Jimmy Carter where his disease has pretty much gone into remission. We would love to that that same kind of result in glioblastoma,Ž Redfern said.Why did Jimmy Carter and John McCain have such different brain tumor results? CARTER MCCAINBy GREGORY WHYTEFITNESS CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYWhen performed correctly, the seated forward bend is capable of providing a number of important bene“ts. In addition to facilitating spinal ”exibility, this exercise stimulates the kidneys, pancreas and liver. It also relieves constipation and gas, tones the abdominal muscles and improves digestion. Although it offers some of the bene“ts provided by inversion exercises such as the headstand, these bene“ts are somewhat limited. Within the Fusion One system, quite a number of inversion exercises exist. Some are more dif“cult than others to perform. Now, although the headstand could be considered the most popular inversion exercise, one that is used quite often by people who are incapable of performing it is the standing forward bend. This exercise, although it lacks inversion bene“tsŽ such as spinal decompression and minimal obstruction of blood ”ow to the upper extremities, will help ensure good health and avoid premature aging. Some of the speci“c bene“ts are the following: € Relieves stress € Helps with depression € Stimulates healthy hair € Facilitates spinal ”exibility € Helps to improve eye function € Tones the abdominal muscles € Improves digestion € Helps improve breathing € Stretches the posterior (back) muscles of the legs When learning to perform the standing forward bend, it is best to do so by “rst assuming the seated version (see photo). Sit comfortably in a chair while ensuring that your feet are about a shoulder width apart. Next, you bend the upper body forward and lower it between both legs. Continue lowering the body towards the floor. At the same time, reach for the floor with your hands and allow the fingers or palms to make contact if possible. Hold the position for as long as comfortably possible as you breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically thr ough your nose. To progress to the standing version (see photo above), you simply raise your buttocks from the chair and proceed to straighten your legs. If possible, the hands or finger tips should maintain contact with the floor. Once again, its important that you hold the position for as long as comfortably possible as you breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically through your nose. When ready, return your buttocks to the chair and raise the upper body back to the star ting position. Fusion One and other exercise classes will start the week of Sept. 24. Registration is underway.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3By KAREN KAPLANLOS ANGELES TIMESYou know its important to eat right, exercise and keep your cholesterol under control to reduce your risk of a heart attack of stroke. If thats not enough of an incentive, new research suggests that taking care of your cardiovascular system will pay off for your brain as well. A study of more than 6,600 senior citizens found that the better they scored on seven measures of cardiovascular health, the lower their risk of dementia over the ensuing years. The difference was dramatic: Among those with the lowest scores, dementia developed at a rate of 13.3 cases per 100 people. But among those with the highest scores, there were only 7.1 cases per 100 people. The results, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, should prompt doctors and patients alike to focus on cardiovascular fitness for the sake of preserving cognitive health, experts said. To achieve a lifetime of robust brain health free of dementia, it is never too early or too late to strive for attainment of idea cardiovascular health,Ž Dr. Jeffrey Saver, a leader of the UCLA Stroke Center, and Dr. Mary Cushman of the University of Vermont wrote in an editorial that accompanies the study. Given the aging population, this positive health message is important to communicate to all members of society.Ž There have already been many clues that vascular problems can translate into brain problems. Narrowed, blocked or leaky blood vessels can lead to strokes, which are the No. 2 cause of dementia (after Alzheimers disease). Observational studies have turned up connections between cardiovascular conditions in midlife and cognitive conditions in late life. The new study adds to the picture by focusing on adults who are already in their senior years. The data came from the Three-City Study, a research effort from France that enrolled residents of Bordeaux, Dijon and Montpellier. All of the participants were at least 65 years old when they enrolled in the study (their average age was 73.7 years). Upon joining, they were given a battery of physical and cognitive tests. For the JAMA report, the researchers focused on seven metrics of cardiovascular health that the American Heart Assn. call Lifes Simple 7. Four of the metrics are behavioral (diet, exercise, weight management and smoking status) and three are biological (blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol). Study participants were given a score of 0, 1 or 2 for each of the categories, to reflect whether their compliance with the AHAs targets was poor,Ž intermediateŽ or optimal.Ž For example, to earn two points for a healthy diet, people had to eat at least one portion of fresh fruit, one portion of raw vegetables, and one portion of cooked fruit or vegetables each day, plus at least two portions of fish each week. To earn two points for weight, they had to have a body mass index under 25; to earn two points for blood pressu re, they needed a reading below 120/80 mm Hg without the assistance of medication. High scores were ra re. Only 6.5 percent of study participants had optimal measurements for at least five of the seven categories. At the other end of the spectrum, 36.4 percent of participants received optimal scores in no more than two categories. The 6,626 seniors in the study were tracked for an average of 8.5 years. During that time, 745 of them were diagnosed with dementia. The risk wasnt the same for everyone. Among those with optimal levels for none or just one of the seven metrics, the diagnosis rate was 1.76 dementia cases per 100 person-years (a measure that accounts for the number of people in the study and the length of time they participated). For each additional metric that was at optimal levels, the risk of dementia fell by about 10 percent. The study authors put it like this: Imagine a 73-year-old man who has a low level of education and does not carry a well-known genetic variant linked with an increased risk of Alzheimers disease. If this man did not meet any of the AHA standards, it would take about six years for his global cognitive level to fall by one standard unit.Ž However, if he met all seven of the AHA standards, it would take twice as long for his cognitive level to decline by the same amount. The authors acknowledged that getting people to upgrade from poor to optimal status on Lifes Simple 7 would be challenging.Ž Simply motivating them to reach intermediateŽ status would be much more doable, and still quite valuable, they wrote. However, the study did not track changes in peoples cardiovascular health over time, so there was no way to know whether improving ones cardiovascular health was associated with a lower dementia risk, they added.

The four-location pediatric/ adult dermatological facility was named number four out of 40 “rms that make up said category. The list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend and is now available at FloridaTrend.com. This is the second consecutive year that Florida Skin Center earned a spot on the top 100 lineup of small, medium and large employers. Last year, Florida Skin Center was named number 36 out of 37 “rms. Florida Skin Centers 2018 results were based on a two-part assessment „ an Employer Bene“ts & Policies Questionnaire and an Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey „conducted by Florida Trends Best Companies Group. For the “rst time, the questionnaire largely consisted of yes/no questions for a quicker turnaround, and the survey required respondents to include their birth year as a way of categorizing employee responses by generational groupings, such as millennials and baby boomers. As always, the questionnaire was distributed to collect information about company policies, practices and demographics, while the survey consisted of statements to be answered on a “vepoint agreement scale, as well as open-ended and demographics questions. Based on the size of the company, Best Companies Group analyzed and categorized all Florida Skin Center employees, according to a list of eight core focus areas. They ranged from leadership and planning, to corporate culture and communications, to role satisfaction, and work environment. Also, results from the questionnaire and survey were still combined and analyzed for ranking purposes. Florida Skin Center was eligible for consideration, since it is a privately held, for-pro“t business in the State of Florida, with 40 employees, for the past 17 years. This honor comes less than three months after the opening of Florida Skin Centers fourth location in Punta Gorda, as well as less than one month after completing 971 free skin examinations. These complimentary skin checks resulted in 44 skin cancer detections and “ve melanoma discoveries. We stood out among hundreds of small businesses across the state, af“rming just how proud our employees are to work here and how much they are able to exercise their dermatological skillset, along with their levels of community engagement,Ž said Anais Aurora Badia, M.D., D.O., Founder. Florida Skin Centers employee roster and patient portal is growing before our very eyes, and for-pro“t and nonpro“t efforts will only climb from here.Ž The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5PROVIDED BY MCCAs men and women age, various factors may affect their ability to drive. In addition to issues with memory, seniors may have failing eyesight and physical limitations, and their reaction time may slow down. In such instances, seniors ability to safely operate a motor vehicle may be questioned. Age alone is not a reliable measure of driving ability, but many of the issues that affect ones ability to safely drive a vehicle tend to appear as men and women near their golden years. Losing the ability to safely operate an automobile can greatly reduce a persons independence. That is why periodic driver evaluations may be met with some reluctance. Aging men and women who dont want to avoid potential con”icts with concerned family members can take their own steps to ensure they maintain their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.Schedule a driving-safety evaluationWhen drivers abilities to operate a motor vehicle become suspect, a thorough evaluation should be scheduled. The evaluation should not be handled by a family physician or family member, but by an unbiased third party like a Certi“ed Driving Rehabilitation Specialist. This is a therapist who has special certi“cation to assist people with disabilities, including older adults, with driving. They can help individuals with adaptive equipment or techniques if driving issues stem from something that can be addressed.Figure out if the car fits the individualA program called CarFit can help drivers assess if their car is suited to their abilities. A team of trained technicians and/ or health professionals work with participants to ensure their vehicles are equipped for maximum safety and comfort. A properly adjusted vehicle is as important as ones cognitive and physical abilities. Adjustments can include mirror placement, good foot positioning and sitting at the proper distance from the steering wheel. People can learn about an upcoming event at www.car-“t.org.Take a driver-improvement courseDriver improvement courses are provided by various organizations, including some insurance companies. AARP also has a Driver Safety Course to lower the risk of traf“c violations, collisions and injuries. Completion of these courses can help drivers enhance their abilities behind the wheel and may result in lower premiums for mature drivers.Keep the mind and body fitRegular exercise and a healthy diet can be assets for mature drivers. Mental “tness techniques and brain exercises can improve reaction time, while aerobic and strength-training workouts can keep the body in shape. Driving is one of the key avenues to personal independence. Strengthening seniors driving abilities is a goal of many organizations.Help senior drivers maintain their independencePHOTO PROVIDEDA properly adjusted vehicle is as important as ones cognitive and physical abilities. middle adu lthood, before peaking around age 60. Unfortunately, sometime after age 70, it seems to take a hit, a factor which gets more worrying as you approach 90. It should also be noted that women tended to have lower self-esteem than men in young adulthood, but gain parity as the decades wear on. Sadly, it also appears that people in happy relationships experience the same drop in self-esteem during old age as people in unhappy relationships. So much for romantic bliss. Although they enter old age with higher self-esteem and continue to have higher self-esteem as they age, they decline in self-esteem to the same extent as people in unhappy relationships,Ž said co-author Kali H. Trzesniewski, PhD, of the University of Western Ontario, as the American Psychological Association noted. Thus, being in a happy relationship does not protect a person against the decline in self-esteem that typically occurs in old age.Ž The upside is that the years between 60 and 70, generally speaking, appear to be as golden as they have been made out to be.AGEFROM PAGE 1 also can spark interesting conversation, and all parties involved can learn something from one another.Planning for the futureYounger generations may not understand the concept of hard timesŽ or doing withoutŽ like a person who has lived through various ups and downs. Passing along advice about economic cycles, saving for the future and maintaining stability is one area of expertise at which many seniors excel.Practicing interpersonal skillsAll the technological savviness in the world cannot compensate for the power of strong interpersonal skills. Being able to address a group of people or speak one-on-one is essential in the workplace and in life. When younger generations speak to older adults, they may become stronger at verbal discourse and have greater perspective of different points of conversation.Learning new technologyYounger generations can impart knowledge of technological devices to older adults. People with skills are usually happy to share their knowledge. Even if seniors arent ready to purchase tablets or smartphones, they may be excited to have their grandchildren teach them about the latest gadgets.Providing sense of purposeBoth seniors and younger generations can realize a greater sense of purpose when interacting with one another. That person may be the reason the other one greets the day with a smile. Visits from grandchildren can reduce the liklihood of isolation and depression in older adults. And younger generations can discover the benefits of personal social interaction rather than communicating exclusively through social media apps. Fostering intergenerational connections is a great way to broaden social circles, improve communication and learn new things.LEARNFROM PAGE 1 eating “sh high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna and halibut. MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. If you are having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, talk to your doctor. CONSIDER A MULTIVITAMIN. Vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, E and the mineral zinc have been shown to promote eye health. In fact, in patients with moderate to severe age-related macular degeneration, a certain vitamin combination has been found to help prevent progression of the disease. This “nding was based on the Age Related Eye Disease Study 1 and 2 (AREDS 1 and 2) which took many years to complete. The latest formula recommended is known as Preservision containing the AREDS 2 formula. STOP SMOKING. Smoking is linked to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness. WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home. Protective eyewear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards specially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity. Most protective eyewear lenses are made of a safety plastic, such as polycarbonate, which is a much stronger material and does not shatter. GIVE YOUR EYES A REST. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing at any one distance, you sometimes forget to blink, resulting in dryness and eye fatigue. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eyestrain. CLEAN YOUR HANDS AND YOUR CONTACT LENSES PROPERLY. To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as appropriate. You cant stop time, but you can take care of your eyes so that they remain healthy as you age. Having clear vision is possible at any age! The National Eye Institute (NEI), one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the federal governments principal agency for vision research, offers additional eye health information and tips for people to protect their vision as they age.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7By ESE OLUMHENSECHICAGO TRIBUNEAfter advising the public to avoid the nasal-spray version of the ”u vaccine for the past two years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now giving it the green light. A favorite of the needle-averse, the spray did not appear to work as well against H1N1, a strain of the flu, in the past few seasons, the CDC said. But its expected to work better this year, said the CDC and Dr. Andrew Pavia, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Utah Hospital. Its an encouraging sign, especially after an especially severe flu season. The CDC said this year that more than 172 children died of flu-related illness in the 2017-18 season, the highest on record in a single season. Last year we had a very bad flu season,Ž Pavia said. The vast majority of deaths were in people who did not get the vaccine.Ž The vaccine formula for H3N2, responsible for much of the damageŽ last season, has also been tweaked, he said. The CDC is recommending those with severe egg allergies to get any version of the vaccine. Previously, some with egg allergies had to be careful to avoid egg-based vaccines, or to get the vaccines administered at sites that could monitor them for allergic reactions. This is the second year the CDC has made the recommendation, Dr. Pavia said.CDC approves nasal-spray vaccine for flu season TNS PHOTOBrayden Yee of Shoreline, Washington, receives a dose of FluMist from a Bartell Drugs pharmacist.€ Englewood Beach: Daily at 8:30 a.m.; and Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. 941-473-0135. € Manasota Beach: Monday-Saturday at 8 a.m. € Venice Beach Pavilion: Monday-Thursday at 7:30 p.m. € North Jetty, Nokomis Beach Yoga: 9 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday € Pop Up Yoga classes at local business led by The Yoga Sanctuary will be held all throughout the summer.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCAging is associated with or linked to a host of mental and physical side effects. For example, many adults expect their vision to deteriorate as they grow older. Such a side effect can be combatted with routine eye examinations that may indicate a need for a stronger eyeglass prescription, a relatively simple solution that wont impact adults daily lives much at all. While physical side effects like diminished vision might not strike much fear in the hearts of aging men and women, those same people may be concerned and/ or frightened by the notion of age-related cognitive decline. Some immediately associate such decline with Alzheimers disease, an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys memory and cognitive skills, ultimately compromising a persons ability to perform even the simplest of tasks. But age-related cognitive decline is not always symptomatic of Alzheimers disease. Learning about Alzheimers and how to maintain mental acuity can help aging men and women better understand the changes their brains might be undergoing as they near or pass retirement age.Is Alzheimers disease hereditary?The National Institute on Aging notes that only a very rare form of Alzheimers disease is inherited. Early-onset familial Alzheimers disease, or FAD, is caused by mutations in certain genes. If these genes are passed down from parent to child, then the child is likely, but not certain, to get FAD. So while many adults may be concerned about Alzheimers because one of their parents had the disease, the NIA notes that the majority of Alzheimers cases are late-onset, which has no obvious family pattern. Can Alzheimers disease be prevented? Studies of Alzheimers disease are ongoing, but to date there is no definitive way to prevent the onset of the disease.How can I maintain mental acuity as I age?Researchers have not yet determined a way to prevent Alzheimers disease, but adults can take certain steps to maintain their mental acuity into retirement. € Exercise regularly. Routine exercise may be most associated with physical benefits, but the NIA notes that such activity has been linked to benefits for the brain as well. For example, a 2011 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America found that aerobic exercise training increases the size of the hippocampus, leading to improvements in spatial memory. The NIA also notes that one study indicated exercise stimulated the brains ability to maintain old network connections and make new ones vital to cognitive health. € Read more. Avid readers may be happy to learn that one of their favorite pastimes can improve the efficiency of their cognitive systems while delaying such systems decline. A 2013 study published in the journal Neurology by researchers at Chicagos Rush University Medical Center found that mentally active lifestyles may not prevent the formations of plaques and tangles associated with Alzheimers disease, but such lifestyles decreases the likelihood that the presence of plaques or tangles will impair cognitive function. € Stay socially connected. Maintaining social connections with family, friends and community members also can help women prevent cognitive decline. Epidemiologist Bryan James of the Rush Alzheimers Disease Center studied how social activity affected cognitive decline, ultimately noting that the rate of cognitive decline was considerably lower among men and women who maintained social contact than it was among those with low levels of social activity. The idea of agerelated cognitive decline strikes fear in the hearts of many men and women, but there are ways for adults to maintain their mental acuity well into their golden years.How aging adults can maintain their mental acuity PHOTO PROVIDEDMaintaining social connections can help aging men and women prevent cognitive decline.

By MARCIA HEROUX POUNDSSUN SENTINELSeventy-nine percent of Florida construction employers say theyre having a hard time “lling some or allŽ skilled trade positions, according to a new survey released this week. The annual survey, which included about 2,500 construction “rms, found skilled worker shortages in all regions of the country, said Ken Simonson, chief economist for Associated General Contractors of America. The Arlington, Va.-based organization conducted the survey along with construction software company Autodesk. Like in Florida, 80 percent of respondents nationwide said they are having dif“culty “lling hourly skilled work positions. This has raised project costs and delayed work schedules for construction “rms, Simonson said. Labor shortages are signi“cant and widespread,Ž he said. In Florida, workers most in demand are pipe layers, welders, drywall installers, electricians and bricklayers. Other positions sorely needed include iron workers, installers and concrete workers. The majority of the Florida construction “rms surveyed said they are losing their skilled workers to the competition. Thats despite 77 percent saying theyve increased pay; 43 percent offering hiring signing or referral bonuses; and 37 percent improving employee bene“ts. Peter Dyga, president and CEO of Associated Builders and Contractors East Florida chapter, said construction “rms that arent paying workers enough or training them in required skills risk losing them to a competitor in the tight labor market. Studies show again and again that an employee who is invested in by their employer ends up being more loyal,Ž said Dyga, whose organization provides construction skills training. Fifty-six percent of Floridas construction employers said they are having dif“culty hiring salaried workers including project managers, architects and engineers. Over the next year, Florida companies say they want to hire for expansions: 82 percent will be seeking hourly skilled trade workers; 71 percent salaried of“ce workers; 70 percent salaried “eld workers; and 53 percent hourly of“ce workers. Sarah Hodges, senior director of the construction business line for Californiabased Autodesk, said the hiring survey is a call for actionŽ to improve the construction labor pipeline. In South Florida, construction worker training is available through Associated Builders & Contractors. For more information on apprenticeships, go to WeTrain.org. Associated Builders said it has open enrollment throughout the year. Training opportunities are also available through county work force agencies.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3JOBSBy KYLE ARNOLDORLANDO SENTINELThe hunt is on for budtenders, cannabis cultivators, weed botanists and dozens of other new jobs that have sprouted with Floridas nascent medical marijuana industry. With dispensaries scouting locations across the state and 147,000 people signed up to use the now-legalized drug, the developing industry is quickly trying to recruit thousands of workers to develop, grow and sell medical cannabis. Medical marijuana businesses say stoners need not apply. A passion for smoking weed is a liability, and a criminal record involving drugs will almost certainly disqualify most candidates. We get hundreds of applications for every job opening we have,Ž said Michelle Terrell, spokesman for Wake“eld, Mass.-based Curaleaf, which opened a dispensary in south Orlando in early August. And maybe only 10 percent of those are quali“ed and meet the legal requirements.Ž Its a high-stakes business, where companies are “ghting to establish an early market share, state regulators are strict and most transactions are handled in cash, meaning dispensaries are stocked with thousands of dollars. But workers say its worth it to jump into the risky business of marijuana for the opportunity to get in early. Floridas legal medical marijuana business is expected to generate about $456 million in sales in 2018, according to a study from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. That meant roughly 2,800 jobs at the end of 2017. By 2022, Floridas marijuana employment is expected to grow almost tenfold to about 25,000 jobs, the research group said. Those estimates would put Floridas marijuana employment behind only California and Colorado, states that have legalized full recreational marijuana use. Not all of the jobs are about tending pot, however. Knox Medical, which is based in South Florida and has its nursery in Apopka, is aggressively hiringŽ workers ranging from accountants and of“ce managers to chemists and customer service associates, said company spokesman Scott Klenet. We need customer-experience specialists, we need drivers and well be expanding our phone operations,Ž Klenet said. And what we “nd is that people come from all walks of life.Ž Workers dont need certi“cation or training to start in the business at Knox, Klenet said. But they do need a clean criminal background and a dedication to following rules, even in a business that would have been illegal anywhere in the United States a decade ago. For a lot of people at the entry level, they say they want to get into this industry because of a passion for cannabis,Ž said James Yagielo, founder of Miami-based medical marijuana recruiting “rm HempStaff. We usually tell them they should avoid bringing up any illegal activity regarding cannabis in an interview.Ž Florida law requires all medical marijuana employees to undergo a criminal background check. Any felony will almost automatically disqualify a candidate, he said. Sometimes you can get by with a low-level, misdemeanor possession charge, but not always,Ž Yagielo said. The pay in the medical marijuana “eld is slightly higher than other service industries because employees have to meet more requirements just to start working. Nursery workers usually start at about $11 an hour in Florida while budtenders „ another name for dispensary sales associates „ usually make $14 or $15 an hour, he said. Catie Callahan gave up a six-year career in management at a national grocery chain to open the new Orlando Curaleaf dispensary at 12402 S. Orange Blossom Trail. Callahan, who said she earned an MBA while working in retail, wanted to get into the new industry to accelerate her career. Medical marijuana companies in Florida are required to be vertically integrated, meaning the same companies need to run everything from development and growing to transportation and sales. Florida also has a limited number of companies that can operate, and to date 14 companies have been registered. I took a class on medical marijuana regulations last year, and Ive been keeping my eyes open for an opportunity,Ž said Callahan, 34. There is a stigma, but Im not worried about leaving this business and not being able to get a job because I worked in medical marijuana.Ž With legal recreational marijuana a possibility in the future, she said she hopes to advance in a business that already has an anchor in the industry. In states like Colorado, which legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, dozens of businesses have developed apart from growing and selling weed, said Sam Walch, an instructor at Florida Gulf Coast University who will start teaching a class on medical marijuana this fall. If we look to Colorado and California, theres a big move to mix existing activities with cannabis,Ž he said. So yoga becomes CannaYoga, wine-country tours now become grow house tours, and cooking classes are now open to a whole new spice.ŽFloridas medical marijuana industry is hiring, but stoners need not apply By ROB WILEMIAMI HERALDMIAMI „ Julio Valdez, a valet at a major hotel chain on South Beach, has parked cars for more than a decade. But in recent years, a crucial part of his income has changed: fewer drivers are tipping him. Before, if you worked valet, you earned good tips. It didnt really matter that companies paid little,Ž he said. The culprit: Cash „ and lack of it. It seems fewer and fewer customers are carrying bills in their wallets, he said. As a tourist and hospitality destination, South Florida is home to an army of doormen, waiters, valets, hotel housekeepers, tour guides and drivers. Like Valdez, they rely on cash tips to help make ends meet. But for these workers, getting by is getting harder as more people ditch cash for cards and apps. Valdez said his current employer has not upped his pay, despite the fact that he and his co-workers can no longer count on tips to boost their hourly wage of around $9. (The employer declined to comment.) Like many valets, he said, he now must work two jobs to make ends meet. His second valet job is in Fort Lauderdale. Sometimes I get out of here at 3 p.m. and I have to be in Fort Lauderdale by 4 so I can work until 11 at night,Ž he said. Fontainebleau hotel housekeeper Gerdine Verssagne says she once got a few hundred dollars a year in tips „ a signi“cant amount for someone earning around $14 an hour. Now, the hotel management no longer puts tip envelopes in guest rooms, so she has to hope guests are conscientious enough to leave a tip on their checkout receipt. Its a roll of the dice. Often, she says, they dont give you anything,Ž she said. Evidence of cashs disappearance goes beyond anecdotes. According to the Federal Reserve, only about 7 billion cash notes were printed in the U.S. in 2017. That was the lowest volume in four years and well below the 20-year high of 11 billion reached in 1999. Last year, publicly traded U.S. Bank found that 50 percent of respondents to a survey said they now carry cash less than half of the time.Ž When they do carry cash, nearly half of respondents said they keep less than $20 on hand. And 46 percent said they use cash fewer than eight days each month. Publicly traded Total System Services, a payments processor, also found cash now ranks a distant third behind credit cards and debit cards as users preferred forms of payment. Those “ndings came from a 2016 survey. In South Florida, table-service restaurants have long faced issues with tipping. Because many tourists come from countries where tipping is not customary, some restaurants now include automatic service fees on the bill. Many establishments make a point of letting customers know when tips are not included, and nearly all sitdown restaurants include a tip lineŽ on credit-card receipts „ though it doesnt always help. But the cashless quandary is new for the more than 200,000 leisure and hospitality workers in Miami-Dade and Broward accustomed to quick cash that plugs “nancial holes and „ lets be honest „ isnt always traceable by tax authorities. Most are paid by employers on the assumption that tips will subsidize their wages. In Florida, the minimum wage for tipped workers is only $5.23 per hour rather than the regular minimum of $8.25. By law, its up to employers to make up the difference if the $8.25 threshold is not being met through tips. That doesnt always happen. An employee needs to know enough, if theyre not represented by a union, to go the Department of Labor, “le a charge, and then the Department, through the Fair Labor Standards Act, would investigate and prosecute to get the back wages for that employee,Ž said Wendi Walsh, Secretary-Treasurer of UNITE HERE Local 355, which represents 7,000 workers in South Florida, about a quarter of whom receive tips. You can imagine how rare that is,Ž she said. Employers have no obligation to make up for tips that once may have far exceeded the minimum with higher wages. Valdez, the valet, says his predicament has been further compounded by Uber and Lyft, which means fewer guests are renting their own cars. And those very appbased services are accelerating the transition to a cashless economy. Uber has ƒ ingrained a culture of no tipping,Ž Harry Campbell, an Uber driver and author who blogs about rideshare services on The Rideshare Guy blog, said in an email. So even though they now have the in-app tip option for passengers, its rare that Ill get a tip on Uber, where as taxi drivers are still tipped on most of their rides.Ž When it comes to tipping in 2018, platforms matter. Drivers have told Campbell they are more likely to receive tips on Lyft than on Uber. And the Curb app, which lets riders call traditional taxis, includes the option for passengers to set a default tip amount for all their rides. Another advantage enjoyed by some taxi drivers, as well as workers like baristas at independent coffee shops, has been the arrival of tablets that let customers choose how much tip to leave. Walsh, the union rep, said this technology, which lets customers choose from pre-selected tipping amounts, has increased the likelihood of leaving a tip „ and a good one at that. They help tremendously,Ž she said. Anywhere where you have that option where a person can give a tip simply by clicking a button, it tremendously increases the likelihood for giving a tip.Ž She estimated that 80 percent of customers leave 20 percent „ even if theyre choosing between 15, 18, and 20 percent. You might think people would choose middle option, (but) most people give 20 percent gratuity when its easy to do so.Ž But she said many Miami workers, like those who work at Starbucks, still dont have access to this kind of technology. In South Florida, its still the overwhelming majority that are still under the old system, where you either give a tip or you dont „ theres no tablet to encourage it.Ž Some Miami workplaces are adapting. When Genevie Jacomino opened the Art & Chemistry salon near Westchester in 2014, she had been in the haircare business long enough to know that cash tips were becoming a thing of the past. (Clients) would sometimes go, Oh, Ill get you next time. But they never really came through,Ž she said. Like many other small businesses, she doesnt allow tipping on a credit card because of the time required to separate out tips and declare them on tax forms, she said. Now, she asks that clients download the Cash App to tip, even if they use a credit card to pay for their salon service. Each stylist has his or her own Cash App handle. If a customer is uncomfortable paying through an app, they can go to a nearby ATM machine to withdraw cash for tips, Jacomino said. Most (stylists) live paycheck to paycheck,Ž she said. Its super important to have take-home pay for daily expenses like gas or food. A lot of times people use their paycheck for constants, like their bills. Without tip money they dont have much flexibility for other spending.Ž Some local unions have been proactive in addressing the tipping shortfall. Last month, Miami-Dade approved applying a living wage to all concession workers at MIA Airport, including tipped workers. Thanks to bargaining, that group will now earn $16.15 minus the state tip credit of $3.02, meaning a tipped worker will make $13.13 per hour (or $9.97 if they have qualifying health insurance). The union also successfully lobbied some employers to move tip jars from the pickup counter to the cash register „ a small change that Walsh said can make a huge difference. Still, tips continue to dwindle, even at restaurants with table service. During recent negotiations at Miami International airport, the union produced dozens of restaurant receipts with the tip line left blank. Carlos Caballero, a server at Miami airports Jose Cuervo tequilera, said the drop-off hes seen in cash tips has been incredibleŽ since he started working there four years ago. Hell see some relief when the new airport wage minimums go into effect. But that wont happen until his employers lease is renewed. There is no current timetable for when that will happen. In the meantime, he tries to take on extra hours. Just having 18 percent makes an incredible difference in our lives,Ž he said.Fewer people are using cash, which means fewer tips.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9JOBSWorking While Disabled: How We Can HelpŽ at www. socialsecurity.gov/pubs/ EN-05-10095.pdf. Part of securing today and tomorrow is giving you the tools to create a ful“lling life. Getting back to work might be part of that. Were here with a ticket to a secure tomorrow.SOCIALFROM PAGE 3 By CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAYDEAR CARRIE: I have worked as a home-health aide since 2009. I average more than 30 hours a week. My problem is that I dont receive a pay stub. I would like to receive one to see what is being taken out of my check. But I am told that the only way I can get a pay stub is to come into the of“ce and have one printed out for me. I dont go into the of“ce that often because I have to take a cab to get there. And it seems silly to pay for a cab to get a piece of paper. I asked the of“ce manager if she could mail me a copy. She said I needed to join the 21st century. Does the of“ce have to mail me a pay stub? „ Snubbed on Stub DEAR SNUBBED: First of all, New York state law says you are entitled to a wage statement, said employment attorney Michael J. Borrelli of Borrelli & Associates in Great Neck, N.Y. So if you request a pay stub, the of“ce needs to ensure that you receive it and on your payday, he said. Federal law does not require employers to provide pay statements, but most states do. The exceptions are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, South Dakota and Tennessee. In states that do require statements, the requirements can vary as to format and conditions. Making the statement available for pick-up is not giving it to you and does not ensure that you receive it,Ž Borrelli said. If you dont have a wage statement in your hand on payday, the employer is failing to meet its duty to furnish a wage statement.Ž Additionally, state labor law forbids your employer from charging you for a wage statement, Borrelli said. Why is that relevant here? Your cab rides mean your employer is essentially charging you for the stub, he said. So at the very least you should be reimbursed for the transportation, he said. If an employer is going to require you to travel to the of“ce to pick up the check, it needs to pay you for that travel,Ž he said. Employers have a number of options for getting wage statement to employees. For example, some employers elect to send the statements electronically. When an employer does this, they need to make sure they also provide access to a computer, with a printer, on company time, so that employees can print out their statements,Ž Borrelli said. Heres the bottom line: Regardless of the method of delivery,Ž he said, the law is clear: It is the employers responsibility to ensure that employees receive a wage statement on payday.Ž It seems that your employer needs to rethink how it is handling your request for a wage statement. DEAR CARRIE: When I asked my human-resources person for paid time off to go get a mammogram, I was told I was not entitled to do so because Im a parttime employee. I work in a Nassau County (N.Y.) school district. Is this denial legal? „ Contested Leave DEAR CONTESTED: It appears that some executives at your company need to bone up on recent changes in the law. Both fulland part-time public employees qualify for the leave, said employment attorney Jessica Moller, a partner at Bond, Schoeneck & King in Garden City, N.Y. Heres her summary of the changes: Effective March 18, 2018, Section 159-b of the Civil Service Law was amended to allow any municipal or school district employee up to four hours of paid leave in order to get a cancer screening.  And, she added, that section of the law previously applied to breast cancer screenings only (a similar leave was provided for prostate screenings), but with this new amendment, the law applies to all types of cancer screening.Ž She noted that this leave time cannot be charged against an employees accrued paid time off such as vacation or sick days.

By JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSJERUSALEM „ The Palestinians on Saturday condemned the U.S. decision to end its decades of funding for the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees, calling it an attack on the Palestinian people and accusing the Trump administration of trying to remove sensitive core issues from the negotiating table as it says it is preparing a Mideast peace initiative. The announcement raised new questions about the viability of any future U.S. peace plan. President Donald Trumps Mideast team, led by his adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, have been working on their plan for about a year and a half but have not said when it will be made public. The Palestinians accuse the U.S. of being unfairly biased in favor of Israel, citing a series of steps by the White House. Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital over Palestinian objections and last week cut $200 million in development aid to the Palestinians. Fridays decision cut an additional $300 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which serves millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants across the region. The Palestinians say these steps are aimed at imposing outcomes for two of the most sensitive issues in the con” ict „ the fate of contested Jerusalem and the plight of Palestinian refugees „ without negotiations. What is the American administration doing? They are pre-empting, prejudging issues reserved for permanent status,Ž said Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator.Palestinians condemn US ending funding for UN refugee agencyBy MIKE CORDERASSOCIATED PRESSAMSTERDAM „ A 19-year-old Afghan citizen had a terrorist motiveŽ for allegedly stabbing two Americans at the main train station in Amsterdam, city authorities in the Dutch capital said Saturday. Amsterdam police shot and wounded the suspect after the double stabbing Friday at Central Station. The local government said hours later that it appeared the victims werent targeted for a speci“ c reason, but added that investigators were not excluding any possibilities. After the U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands on Saturday identi“ ed the people injured as American tourists, Amsterdam City Hall gave an update. Based on the suspects “ rst statements, he had a terrorist motive,Ž the city administration said in a statement that did not elaborate on what the statements were or how they showed intent. The wounded Americans were recovering in a hospital from what police termed serious but not life-threatening injuries. Their identities have not been released. The suspect, who was identi“ ed only as Jawed S. in line with privacy rules in the Netherlands, also remains hospitalized. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte con“ rmed on Twitter that the investigation was focused Saturday on extremist ideology. W. had a residency permit from Germany. German authorities searched his home and seized data storage devices that would be analyzed as part of the investigation, the city government statement said. He was scheduled to be arraigned during a Amsterdam: Terrorist motive alleged in attack on AmericansFUNDING | 8ATTACK | 8 Cindy McCain weeps and leans her head on her sons shoulder as opera singer Renee Fleming performs a moving rendition of Danny Boy at the end of the memorial service. By LAURA KING and JA CKIE CALMESLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)WASHINGTON „ Of“ cial Washington gathered at the National Cathedral Saturday to say farewell to Sen. John McCain, capping days of tributes to the war hero and two-time Republican presidential candidate who died last week of brain cancer at 81. Two former presidents who prevented McCain from winning that of“ ce, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, delivered eulogies to the six-term Arizona senator before 2,500 invited guests. Their keynote role was McCains idea „ his “ nal, poignant nod to the bipartisanship that was his hallmark. It was also an implicit yet clear rebuke of the current president, an undercurrent that also ran through the eulogists remarks. He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,Ž said Bush, who defeated McCain in a rancorous race for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination that left McCain embittered for several years. He was honorable, always recognizing that his opponents were still patriots and human beings.Ž Perhaps above all, John detested the abuse of power,Ž Bush said. Obama, who defeated McCain in 2008 after the senator won his partys nomination, said of McCains choice of his two former adversaries as eulogists: What better way to get a last laugh than to make George and I say nice things about him to a national audience?Ž Despite their many differences on foreign policy, Obama said, We stood together on Americas role as the one indispensable nation, believing that with great power and great blessings comes great responsibilities.Ž In his dying weeks and months, McCain presided over many of the preparations for his remembrance, including an abundance of symbolic touchstones from his life and career, and the instruction that the current president not be included. While President Donald Trump was absent, the implicit criticisms in the past presidents remarks, and others, made him a presence. So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, traf“ cking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage,Ž Obama said. Its a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born of fear.Ž John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that.Ž Daughter Meghan McCain delivered the “ rst of the eulogies and, during her emotional recollections of her father, she expressed a clear rebuke of the current president: The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great.Ž That evoked the “ rst applause from an audience that included some administration of“ cials, among them Trumps daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

Broward County will recount ballots this weekend in the school board race between incumbent Donna Korn and her challenger, Ryan Petty. Ryans daughter Alaina was among those killed in the Feb. 14 attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The initial count shows Korn received 50.4 percent of the vote in Tuesdays election for a countywide seat on the nine-member board. She needs to stay above 50 percent to avoid a November runoff with Petty, who “nished second at 31 percent in the three-person “eld. Results are expected to be announced on Sunday.Man convicted of killing wife, unborn childOCALA (AP) „ A Florida man has been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and unborn child. The Ocala-Star Banner reports that 48-year-old Vincent LaSara Terry was found guilty Thursday of two counts of second-degree murder. He faces life in prison at a Oct. 1 sentencing. Authorities say Chrystal Terry disappeared in December 2017 when she was a little more than 4 months pregnant. Investigators later found photos of the woman dead, naked and beaten on Vincent Terrys phone. They also reported “nding a large blood stain on the ”oor of the couples Summer“eld home. Terrys attorney argued that the woman disappeared because she went on a drug binge, and she wasnt dead in the photos on Terrys phone.Suspect fleeing Florida deputies jumps in pond, drownsORLANDO (AP) „ Florida authorities say a suspect ”eeing from deputies drowned after jumping into a retaining pond. The Orange County Sheriffs Of“ce said 49-yeaer-old Corey Anderson ran when of“cers found felony narcotics on him. During the chase, Anderson jumped into a retention pond. The sheriffs of“ce says deputies tried to save him, but Anderson drowned.Oops! Pilot almost lands at wrong Fort Myers airportFORT MYERS (AP) „ An American Airlines ”ight from Philadelphia almost landed at the wrong Florida airport before air traf“c controllers guided it back on course. The Fort Myers NewsPress reports that a pilot began approaching Page Field on Thursday, but the plane was supposed to be landing at Southwest Florida International Airport more than seven miles away. Page Field is a general aviation airport that used to serve as the regions commercial airport until Southwest Florida International opened in 1983. A local pilot who examined ”ight date told the newspaper the Airbus A320 descended to about 800 feet on approach to Page Field before it climbed back to 1,500 feet and zigzagged to the correct airport. The longer of the two runways at Page Field is 6,400 feet, while the runway at Southwest Florida International is 12,000 feet long. The Federal Aviation Administration called the incident unusual.ŽPolice: 2 arrested at drug house with drive-thru windowOCALA (AP) „ Authorities say theyve arrested two people who were running a drug business out of a mobile home with its own walk-up and drive-thru window. An Ocala police news release says 20-year-old McKenzee Dobbs and 32-year-old William Parrish Jr. were arrested last week following several overdoses connected to the house. Both face multiple charges related to the possession and sale of fentanyl, a powerful opioid painkiller. Police say of“cers collected drugs, paraphernalia and cash while executing a search warrant at the home Aug. 24. Investigators determined that Dobbs and Parrish had been selling drugs through a kitchen window. Police say theyve recorded 98 drug overdoses this year within Ocala city limits, and 13 were fatal. Police were working to determine if any fatal overdoses were connected to the mobile home.EA sets up GoFundMe, donates $1M to shooting victimsJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ Video game company Electronic Arts has donated $1 million to the victims of a shooting at a Florida video game tournament. GoFundMe announced in a news release Friday that EAs Jacksonville Tribute Fund has a goal of $2 million. Authorities say 28-yearold Taylor Robertson and 22-year-old Elijah Clayton were killed at a Jacksonville mall Sunday when a fellow gamer opened “re at the Madden NFL 19 tournament. Eleven others were injured. EA says theyve partnered with GoFundMe and the National Compassion Fund to give 100 percent of the collected funds to the wounded and the families of Robertson and Clayton. EA Sports publishes the Madden football games, and the company organized the tournament where the shooting occurred.By ELLIE RUSHINGSOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINELFORT LAUDERDALE „ While many people view South Floridas invasive iguana population as an annoyance at best and a pandemic at worst, Ishmeal Asson sees something else: lunch. The Fort Lauderdale resident and native Trinidadian considers eating iguanas to be a way of life. Growing up, Asson learned to roast the island critters at roadside and backyard gatherings. Iguana is a staple in the Caribbean, where the reptiles are a native species and are known as pollo de los rboles,Ž or chicken of the trees. Their meat contains more protein than chicken, and members of some cultures believe it has medicinal properties. In South Florida, Asson is hardly alone in his taste for cooked iguana. He has more than a dozen friends who eat the animal, and they frequently hunt them using nets, snares and traps. We are having a cookout this weekend,Ž he said. Asson said he and his friends use a traditional method of preparing iguana. First, we cut off the head, then roast (the body) on the “re. You have to roast it with the skin on because its easier to take the skin off once its roasted,Ž he said. Then, we cut it up into pieces and season it with a lot of fresh produce like chives and onions. I love to season it with curry and hot pepper, too. It tastes like chicken.Ž As someone who has eaten iguanas his entire life, Asson still “nds humor in eating the prehistoric-looking reptiles. I prefer to eat it with the skin on,Ž he said, because then I know what Im eating. It kind of gives you a sense of humor, like, This is iguana, you know?Ž While Asson and other South Florida iguana lovers can nab the lizards for free and with little dif“culty, their peers in other states order iguana meat from companies such as Exotic Meat Markets. Anshu Pathak, owner of the California-based company, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that he imports 10,000 pounds of iguana a month from Florida trappers. He said that his company, which sells such items as lion steak and raccoon sausage, is helping to control the iguana population. I am making iguana sausages, hot dogs, iguana burgers,Ž Pathak said. I am trying to do anything and everything to make them palatable to the public. The industry is only growing.Ž He said he sells the meat to customers and restaurants across the United States, offering boneless meat for $59.99 per pound and whole, skin-on iguana for $49.99. Pathak said he used to import iguanas from Puerto Rico, but now gets them from trappers in Florida. He said that trappers sometimes send the reptiles frozen, but mostly transport them alive and by airplane. A lot of my customers want them whole, with guts in,Ž he said. Pathak said his facility has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. When he receives live iguanas, he said, he puts them in a freezer to kill them. The FDA did not respond to inquiries about the consumption and commercialization of iguana meat. Selling iguanas requires a Florida wildlife license, though a permit is not needed to possess one, according to Robert Klepper, law-enforcement media spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. There is no prohibition on who can buy an iguana, Klepper said. Brian Wood, owner of All American Gator, an alligator-processing and iguana-trapping company in Hollywood, is avidly searching for a market for his trapped iguanas. Wood said he captures more than a thousand of the creatures a month. I feel bad just killing them and wasting it, so I started keeping them,Ž he said. Now, more than a thousand of the lizards live on his iguana farm in LaBelle, in Hendry County. Because he captures so many, Wood said he feeds some to his alligators and turns others into wallets. With the number of iguanas I catch, I could make a fortune off selling them if I could “nd a market,Ž Wood said. When I “rst started selling alligator, people asked, Who would eat alligator? Now, I sell 80,000 pounds of it a year.Ž Florida isnt the only place where the lizards run rampant. Green iguanas began to take over Puerto Rico in the early 2000s, undermining roadways, chomping on native plants and harassing islanders. It was when they started obliterating the islands crops that residents asked the government for help. A bounty of up to $6 per pound was placed on the creatures heads. Similar to Floridas python hunt, the Puerto Rican government issued permits in 2012 for private companies to legally hunt iguanas, said Daniel Galan-Kercado, who was secretary of Natural Resources for Puerto Rico at the time. It was very effective in the “rst two years. They were capturing maybe 200 to 300 per week,Ž Galan-Kercado said. Private entities paid hunters for iguanas and then processed and exported the meat to the United States, Central America and Asia, he said. Some Puerto Ricans also started farming iguana, and it became a signi“cant industry. Commercializing iguana provided an answer for Puerto Rico, but so far, no iguana-export industry operates in Florida. Moreover, the reptile is far from appearing on most Floridians dinner tables. You just have to try it, though,Ž said Brittany Peters, who during a recent trip to South Florida made an iguana-inspired meal for the “rst time. With no experience cooking the beasties, Peters went with a simpler route than roasting the meat over an open ”ame „ she made burritos. Peters shot two green iguanas in the Keys, then skinned, boiled and sauteed the meat at her relatives home in Fort Lauderdale. She boiled the skinned body for about an hour, then picked off the tender meat. She added a chili-lime seasoning from Trader Joes before sauteing it with onions. Peters paired the white meat with sour cream, cilantro, avocado and lime for a deliciousŽ reptile burrito. (A note of caution to veteran and would-be iguana eaters: Although it is illegal to do so, nuisance iguanas are occasionally poisoned. Before biting into iguana meat, make sure it does not contain any poisons or other harmful substances.) As an avid hunter, Peters lets none of the animals she kills go to waste. If youre going to participate in killing them, (iguana) is good enough, healthy enough and tasty enough that you should absolutely take the time to cook it, too,Ž Peters said. Overall, she gives her recipe three stars, but only because shes not a chef. With some classes, I think I could get it to taste even better,Ž she said.Chicken of the trees: Eating South Floridas iguanas AP PHOTOSIn this June 24, photo, iguanas gather on a seawall in the Three Islands neighborhood of Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3Dear Mr. Berko: When Tesla stock was trading for $345, you told me to sell my 100 shares, which I had invested in at $96. I did. But within a few weeks, Tesla was trading at $386. You were persona non grata at our house. Now Tesla trades for $318. I need to know whether I should invest in it again. „ RG, Rochester, Minn. Dear RG: Theres a difference between an investment and a speculation. Elon Musk founded Tesla in 2003, the year that Funny Cide won the Kentucky Derby, Norah Jones dominated the Grammy Awards and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders in the Super Bowl. Tesla became the leading developer of electric automobiles. In 2010, Musk began running out of money „ but he believed that soon, Tesla would have tens of thousands of all-electric vehicles on the road. However, numerous snags and unexpected production delays continued to hurt production and sales. Musk badly needed money, so he decided to take Tesla public because it would be easier to lay off risks on thousands of small shareholders than it would be to do so on a consortium of private lenders. So Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley sold 13.3 million shares at $17 each, raising a mingy $220 million, and that was the beginning of Teslas $9 billion of current debt. It was fascinating to watch Tesla Inc. (TSLA$318) zoom higher and higher and climb to $386 a share in June 2017 and then „ gasp „ crash to $266 in nine months. And it was a delightful but frightful brouhaha to watch option traders and their nominees, on both sides of the pit, using put and call options (plus a combination of strips, straddles and straps), which can generate sweet pro“ts as TSLA moves up and as TSLA moves down. TSLA is not the kind of common stock in which one invests money. It is not an investment that belongs in pension plan accounts, nor is it a stock for orphans, widows, widowers, the illegitimate children of widowers or conservative investors. In fact, TSLA is not an investment at all; rather, its a screwball speculation like penny stocks, oil and gas partnerships, and maps of the Lost Dutchmans Gold Mine. Tesla is well-known for missing deadline after deadline and constantly falling short on production numbers. Some watchers believe that Elon spends more time in his world than he does in the real world. Given TSLAs 10 straight years of losses totaling over $5.7 billion, working capital de“cit of $1.8 billion, longterm debt of $9.5 billion, operating margins of 2 percent and expected loss of over $7 a share (nearly $2 billion) this year, Id not care to own the stock. Elon is certainly an unusual and fascinating fellow, but he just doesnt know how to run this business. Like Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla „ both of whom were also unusual, fascinating and lacking in the skills needed to manage men „ Elon cant manage a balance sheet, a marketing program or an income statement. However, if Elon were to leave Tesla „ if his huge marble statues were removed from Tesla buildings, along with the life-size paintings, sculptures and large photographs of him „ Id consider owning the stock. Teslas Model S may be the “nest car ever made. I drove one two years ago, and it was a heck of a hoot. In fact, the P85D, the high-performance version of the Model S, is the highest-rated car in the history of Consumer Reports. TSLA was supposed to make $1 a share this year, but the usual Musk-snags have the bottom line showing a $7-per-share loss. Elon projects a pro“t for next year. So if you want to speculate, you can buy the stock. (But be mindful that when Tesla begins to report earnings, the stocks price will be a lot lower.) If you would prefer to invest, then consider General Mills, Microsoft or AT&T. And when it comes to Elons talk about taking the company private, I doubt that the Saudis are dumb enough to invest in a company that has billions of dollars of losses. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O. Box 8303, Largo, FL 33775, or email him at mjberko@ yahoo.com. Invest in Tesla stock again? MalcolmBERKOC By LUIS ALONSO LUGO, PAUL WISEMAN and ROB GILLIESASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump warned Canada on Saturday that it will be outŽ of a revised North American trade agreement unless its fairŽ to the United States, and he threatened to scrap the current deal should Congress interfereŽ with the negotiations. There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal,Ž Trump said in one of a series of tweets as he visited his Virginia golf club while three former presidents and a range of political dignitaries attended a Washington memorial for John McCain. Trump wasnt invited. But its not clear whether the Trump administration has the authority to strike a deal with just Mexico, as it announced Monday, and exclude Canada. Also, Congress must approve any rewrite of the North American Free Trade Agreement signed under President Bill Clinton, and might refuse to endorse a deal that leaves longtime ally Canada on the sidelines. Talks to keep Canada in the trade bloc are to resume this coming week as Washington and Ottawa try to break a deadlock over issues such as Canadas dairy market and U.S. efforts to shield drug companies from generic competition. As weve said all week, were working toward a modernized NAFTA that is good for the middle class and people working hard to join it,Ž said Adam Austen, a spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. With good will and ”exibility on all sides, a winwin-win outcome is achievable. Canada, of course, will only sign a deal which is good for Canada.Ž Trump noti“ed Congress on Friday that he plans to sign an agreement in 90 days with Mexico to replace NAFTA and hopes Canada can brought on board, too. Congress would have to approve any agreement. There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. If we dont make a fair deal for the U.S. after decades of abuse, Canada will be out,Ž Trump tweeted. Congress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off...Ž Earlier, he said he loved Canada, but says theyve taken advantage of our Country for many years!Ž A U.S.-Mexico deal sealed on Monday excluded Canada. Freeland then hurried to Washington for talks aimed at preserving Canadas membership in the regional trade agreement. But Freeland couldnt break an impasse in four days of negotiations with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. American and Canadian negotiators will return to negotiations Wednesday. The talks had taken an odd turn for the worse Friday over news that Trump had told Bloomberg News that he wasnt willing to make any concessions to Canada. The 24-year-old NAFTA tore down most trade barriers dividing the United States, Mexico and Canada. Trade between the three countries surged. But many manufacturers responded to the agreement by moving factories south of the border to take advantage of low Mexican wages, then shipping goods north to the United States and Canada. Trump has charged that the deal wiped out American factory jobs. He has pledged to negotiate a better deal or withdraw from NAFTA altogether. Talks on a new trade deal started a year ago but bogged down over U.S. demands, including some meant to return manufacturing to the United States. A few weeks ago, the United States began negotiating with Mexico, leaving Canada on the sidelines. Outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto wanted to sign a deal before he left of“ce Dec. 1. The deal announced Monday would, among many other things, require that 40 percent to 45 percent of a car be made in a North American country where auto workers made at least $16 an hour „ that is, not in Mexico „ before qualifying for duty-free status. Canada doesnt have much of an objection to the auto provisions of the U.S.-Mexican deal, which would bene“t Canadian workers too. Ottawa does have other complaints. Neither U.S. nor Canadian negotiators are talking publicly about the issues that divide them. Experts have said the ”ashpoints include trade barriers that protect Canadian dairy farmers and Ottawas insistence on keeping NAFTA provisions for resolving disputes. Also nettlesome is a provision in the U.S.-Mexico deal that shields U.S. makers of biologics „ ultra-expensive drugs produced in living cells „ from generic competition for 10 years instead of the eight Canada is willing to live with: The Canadians fear the protection will drive up drug prices and make their government health care system more costly. The Trump administration had insisted that it wanted a deal by Friday, beginning a 90-day countdown that would let Mexicos Nieto sign the pact before leaving of“ce. But under U.S. trade rules, the U.S. team doesnt have to make public the text of the revamped agreement for 30 additional days, buying more time to reach a deal with the Canadians.Trump: Canada will be out of trade deal unless its fair AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump waves to members of the media after arriving on Air Force One, Friday, at Andrews Air Force Base in Md. Watching is Air Force Col. Samuel Chesnut. By ERIC TUCKERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump nodded with approvalŽ at the suggestion of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a court “ling that seeks leniency for a former campaign aide who lied to the FBI. Lawyers for George Papadopoulos are seeking probation, saying the foreign policy adviser misled agents during a January 2017 interview not to harm an investigation but rather to save his professional aspirations and preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master.Ž Papadopoulos is a pivotal “gure in special counsel Robert Muellers investigation as the “rst Trump campaign aide to plead guilty and cooperate with prosecutors. The revelation that hed been told by a professor during the campaign that Russia had dirtŽ on Democrat Hillary Clinton in the form of emails helped trigger the FBIs counterintelligence investigation in July 2016 into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. The 16-page defense memo “led late Friday paints Papadopoulos as an eager-to-please campaign aide who was in over his head, and aims to counter the prosecutions narrative that Papadopouloss deception irreparably damaged the investigation. The defense lawyers say Papadopoulos was hired by the campaign in March 2016 despite having no experience with Russian or U.S. diplomacy. That month, he traveled to Italy and connected with a London-based professor who introduced him to a woman described as a niece of Putins even though that was not true. That professor, Joseph Mifsud, would later tell him that individuals in Moscow possessed dirtŽ on Clinton. When Papadopoulos returned to Washington, he was eager to show his value to the campaignŽ and witnessed his career skyrocketing to unimaginable heights.Ž At a March 31 meeting of Trumps national security adviser, Papadopoulos proposed that he could leverage his newfound Russian connections to arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin. While some in the room rebuffed Georges offer, Mr. Trump nodded with approval and deferred to Mr. Sessions who appeared to like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it,Ž defense lawyers wrote. That language is a reference to Jeff Sessions, who at the time was a Republican senator from Alabama and key campaign aide and later became the Trump administrations attorney general. Sessions, however, told the House Judiciary Committee last November that he resisted the idea of any Russia meeting. I pushed back at his trip and I was concerned that he not go off somewhere, pretending to represent the Trump campaign,Ž Sessions told lawmakers. He had no authority for that.Ž The inclusion of details about that meeting by defense lawyers seems intended to show that Papadopoulos provided the Mueller team with valuable insight about Trump campaign operations, even though prosecutors have said in their own sentencing memo that he did not provide substantial assistance to them.Ž One morning in January 2017, two FBI agents knocked on the door of Papadopouloss mothers home seeking to interview him. He agreed to accompany them to their of“ce thinking they wanted to ask him about a Russian businessman, Sergei Millian, but soon the questions shifted to Russian in”uence in the election „ and Papadopoulos was surprisedŽ and caught off guard,Ž the defense lawyers wrote. Defense lawyers acknowledge that Papadopoulos lied, minimized, and omitted material factsŽ to the FBI about his foreign contacts, including about when he had learned from Mifsud that the Russians had dirt on Clinton.Papadopoulos: Trump nodded at suggestion of Putin meeting By ADAM PEMBLE and KIRSTEN GRIESHABERASSOCIATED PRESSCHEMNITZ, Germany „ Police in eastern Germany halted an anti-migration protest march that emboldened far-right activists started Saturday hoping would launch a nationwide movement capable of challenging the political establishment. A trio of nationalist groups held separate daytime rallies in the city of Chemnitz over the Aug. 26 killing of a German citizen, allegedly by migrants from Syria and Iraq. The two largest groups also organized a joint nighttime march, thinking a broader force might emerge from the display of unity and take hold. If the number of people who attended is any gauge, the envisioned far-right movement was in the earliest of embryonic stages. It drew about 4,500 participants, Saxony state police reported before citing security concerns as the reason for ending the event early. The demonstrators screamed and whistled angrily as of“cers broke up the protest. The march was stopped several times along the way as counter-protesters blocked the route and the police of“cers deployed to keep them and the marchers apart ”ooded into the street. The counter-protesters numbered about 4,000, the state police said. The opposing camps clashed in Chemnitz on Monday, the day after the fatal stabbing of the 35-yearold German citizen and the arrests of the migrants on suspicion of manslaughter. Scenes of vigilantes chasing foreigners in the citys streets have shocked people in other parts of Germany since. Police, at times, were unable to control the earlier protests and clashes. Leaders of the two groups that combined forces on Saturday night cultivated a different image, wearing dark suits and carrying white roses. However, the mood at the event bringing together previously isolated clusters of nationalists „ from lawmakers to Hitler-saluting skinheads „ darkened as the sun set. People from both ends of the political spectrum could be seen drinking beer and shouting slurs at police. The tension in the air re”ected the polarization over Germanys ongoing effort to come to terms with an in”ux of more than 1 million refugees and migrants seeking jobs since 2015.German police end march envisioned as far-right springboard AP PHOTOPeople participate in a demonstration in Chemnitz, eastern Germany, Saturday.NATIONAL NEWS

The senators wife was silently escorted down the inclined walkway alongside the Vietnam Memorial wall by Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House chief of staff John F. Kelly, two former Marine generals McCain knew well and whose appointment to Trumps Cabinet reassured the senator even as he expressed doubts about the presidents “tness for of“ce. At the deepest point of the monument, where the wall angles, a sailor placed the wreath on a stand and the small group, which included McCains seven children, paused for prayer. As they slowly walked back to the motorcade, assembled tourists broke into applause. The memorial service at Washington National Cathedral was intended as a cap to public commemorations that began Wednesday in Phoenix, in his adopted home state of Arizona. The McCain family plans a private burial service on Sunday at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., where the senator, the son and grandson of four-star admirals, graduated in 1958. Invited guests, including foreign dignitaries, military of“cials and McCains political associates, escorted by Naval Academy cadets in dress whites, began “lling the cathedrals pews two hours before the start of the service. Among the attendees were Bill and Hillary Clinton and former Sens. Robert Dole, the longtime Republican Senate leader, and Joe Lieberman, the former Democrat whom McCain later said he would have preferred as his 2008 vice presidential running mate, rather than Sarah Palin, who was not invited. Lieberman, in his eulogy, said of McCain: He regularly reached across party lines because he knew that was the only way to solve problems.Ž The pallbearers chosen re”ected the senators diverse friendships, including Biden, his Democratic Senate colleague and Obamas vice president; Russian dissident Victor Kara-Murza, and actor-“lmmaker Warren Beatty. The funeral follows elegiac commemorations that began Wednesday in McCains home state of Arizona and continued on to the Capitol Rotunda, where his body lay in state Friday, an honor accorded to few Americans. Members of both parties praised the late lawmaker as the embodiment of the traditional ideals of patriotism and civility in a bitterly polarized political era. The presidents absence from the funeral re”ected McCains belief that Trump violates those ideals, and the president returned McCains enmity. Tributes this week, and McCains posthumous farewell delivered Monday by a longtime aide, avoided mentioning Trump by name but lamented the divisiveness in the nations capital and beyond that the president has come to represent. Trump, who had said that McCain did not qualify as a war hero just because of his captivity in North Vietnam, had publicly mocked McCain to the end at political rallies. On Friday, as McCain for the last time was brought to the Capitol where hed served in the House and Senate, Trump attended a fundraiser in North Carolina. It was nearly a year ago that McCain received his grim diagnosis of an aggressive glioblastoma, the same type of brain tumor that killed his friend Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat, in 2009. His family announced Aug. 24 that medical treatment for his cancer was being discontinued; the next day, he was dead. By LAURIE KELLMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Memories mixed with humor, grief and lessons on civility marked Sen. John McCains memorial service Saturday at Washington National Cathedral, the last event in Washington of the “ve-day farewell tour. A few scenes:THE RESPECT OF RIVALSKeep on talking, even to rivals. That was the message of two former presidents McCain asked to testify that reconciliation, even amid the knife “ght of national politics, is an effort worth making. George W. Bush, who defeated McCains bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000, recalled a hard-fought personal journey.Ž In recent years, we sometimes talked of that intense period like football players remembering a big game,Ž Bush said from the pulpit. In the process, rivalry melted away. In the end, I got to enjoy one of lifes great gifts: the friendship of John McCain. And I will miss him.Ž Barack Obama, meanwhile, said he and McCain didnt advertise it,Ž but they would meet almost weekly in the Oval Of“ce to talk about policy and also their families. And our disagreements didnt go away during these private conversations. Those were real and they were often deep,Ž Obama said. But we enjoyed the time we shared away from the bright lights and we laughed with each other and we learned from each other and we never doubted the other mans sincerity or the others patriotism „ or that when all was said and done, we were on the same team.Ž SEATMATESIf Hillary Clinton and Dick Cheney could sit next to each other, could there be hope for the divided nation, or Middle East peace? Unclear. But the McCainesque pairing of people who have never been close raised eyebrows. The Democratic presidential nominee and Republican former vice president were among the luminaries and their spouses seated in the front row during McCains memorial service. Clinton, of course, was there as the wife of former President Bill Clinton. Cheney was there because he had been Bushs vice president. But at a service McCain designed to break down rivalries and encouraged civility, Clinton and Cheney, two of their parties sharpest partisans, drew stares. Its not clear if the two exchanged any words. LESSONS ON CIVILITYBush and Michelle Obama did. Seated elsewhere in McCain Row 1, the former Republican president at one point could be seen handing the former “rst lady, wife of Bushs Democratic successor, something „ which she accepted. It was too far away in the massive cathedral to say for sure. But that didnt stop Twitter from speculating that the object might have been candy, or a tissue. During Obamas speech, Mrs. Obama and Bush turned to each other, smiled and nodded. Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake tweeted a photo of the front row with the caption, Decency wins.Ž GOLFPresident Donald Trump stuck to his Saturday routine „ heading to the golf course „ as political dignitaries gathered at Washington National Cathedral. Trump left the White House as the late senators daughter Meghan McCain delivered an emotional rebuke to Trump without mentioning his name. Dressed in a white polo shirt and baseball hat, he entered his motorcade, which whisked him to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. The president did not offer any commentary on McCains memorial service. The White House did not respond to questions about whether he was watching. TWEET FROM TRUMPWORLDTrump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson tweeted her own contrast with McCain. @realDonaldTrump ran for @POTUS ONE time and WON! Some people will never recover from that. #SorryNotSorry Yes, #MAGA,Ž she tweeted during McCains service. She appears to be alluding to McCains two unsuccessful presidential bids, in 2000 and 2008, but lost the general election to Obama. Pierson pinned her tweet to the top of her feed, so it would not be buried under future tweets.BIPARTISAN PALLBEARERSEvery aspect of the senators weeklong memorial carried political and personal signi“cance, including his pall bearers Saturday. Among them, former Vice President Joe Biden, actor Warren Beatty, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Russian democracy advocate Vladimir KaraMurza, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and former Sens. Russ Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat; Phil Gramm, a Texas Republican; and Gary Hart, a Colorado Democrat. The group sat together near the side of the altar. A WAVE OF GRIEFMcCains wife, Cindy, was composed during most of the service and other events throughout the “ve-day farewell to her husband. But she broke down at Saturdays memorial service as opera singer Renee Fleming sang Danny BoyŽ at the request of the music-loving late senator. During the performance, Mrs. McCain shut her eyes and put her hand over her mouth. She then rested her head on the shoulder of her son Jack. Tears streamed down her face, which she wiped away as Fleming “nished.ALMANACToday is Sunday, Sept. 2, the 245th day of 2018.

NEW YORK TIMES SUNDAY CROSSWORDFOR ANSWERS TURN TO PAGE 2No. 0826 Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1993, when two Circuit City executives formed me to diversify the companys operations. I was envisioned as a company with a massive inventory of cars offered at a then-revolutionary no-hagglingŽ price. I was spun off from Circuit City in 2002. Today, based in Richmond, Virginia, Im Americas biggest used-car retailer, with more than 190 stores in 41 states. I employ 25,000-plus people. My annual revenue tops $17 billion. In my most recent fiscal year, I sold more than 700,000 used vehicles as well as more than 400,000 wholesale vehicles at in-store auctions. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. € If the stock seems significantly overvalued. Consider the tax consequences, though. If you expect it to keep growing over the long run, hanging on can be best. € If you find a much more attractive investment. If your calculations suggest that a holding is now fairly valued and stock in another great company appears to be very undervalued, you could gain more in the other stock. (Again, consider tax effects, though.) € If there are red flags such as shrinking profit margins or steep debt. Short-term problems can be OK, but look out for long-term ones. € If youll need that money within five (or even 10) years, it should be in a less volatile place than stocks. Consider a money market account or a CD. € If youre only hanging on for emotional reasons. Focusing only on whether to buy a certain stock and not giving much thought to when you should sell it is a costly blunder. If you leave your dollars in a poor investment, they cant grow for you in a great one.The Motley Fool TakeApple AppealApple (Nasdaq: AAPL) recently reported its third-quarter results, in which revenue popped 17 percent year over year (marking four consecutive quarters of double-digit year-over-year growth) and earnings soared 40 percent higher. Apple has been financially dependent on its iPhone, but it is wisely expanding its revenue in other areas. Its Services segment (which includes Apple Music, the App Store and Apple Pay) is a rising star, with its revenue up by 31 percent in the most recent quarter to $9.5 billion, representing 18 percent of the companys top line. Clearly, Apple not only knows how to sell devices to its customers, but it can also convince them to spend more money in the companys ecosystem through its ever-increasing menu of services. The companys dividend yield was recently at 1.4 percent, and dividend investors should consider that Apple has a very low payout ratio of about 24 percent, meaning that the company has plenty of room to increase that payout. Apple is committed to its shareholders, having announced a $100 billion share repurchase program in the second quarter of 2018. Whether youre looking for a company with earnings, cash on the balance sheet or a wide competitive moat, Apple fits the bill. (The Motley Fool has recommended Apple and owns shares of it as well as the following options on it: long January 2020 $150 calls and short January 2020 $155 calls.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentShort-Term BluesI bought shares of Novo Nordisk for around $44.50 per share, and now, about a week later, shares have fallen below $41. From my reading, I gather that they may continue to drop and not recover for years. Should I sell and take a big loss or hold on? „ R.W., online The Fool Responds: Youre being very impatient. Stocks move up and down throughout each day and week and year. Over the long run, the stocks of healthy and growing companies should increase in value, making shareholders wealthier. But even great companies stocks have languished for months or even years „ and terrific investments can fall in value for a while, too. A week is way too short a time in which to expect to reap a profit. Many fortunes have been made by investing in great companies and then hanging onto the shares for many years „ as long as the companies remained strong and with bright futures. If you dont have the confidence to remain invested in individual companies, consider just socking money away in a low-fee broad-market index fund, such as one that tracks the S&P 500. Novo Nordisk was recently trading around $47.50 per share. Its facing pricing pressures for its diabetes drugs and investor opinions about it are mixed. Its future has promise, though, and The Motley Fool has recommended it. Just Divide by 0.14748071991788QThe Dow was recently at 25,600. What, exactly, does that number represent? „ M.M., Decatur, IllinoisAThe DowŽ refers to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), a U.S. stock market index established in 1896. Its an average of the stock prices of 30 companies that include Apple, Boeing, CocaCola, The Home Depot, McDonalds, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Walmart and Visa. It doesnt look like an average, though, when its 25,600 and many of the stocks sport prices below $100.It makes sense, though, because the shares, on average, actually would trade at lofty levels „ if they had never been split, issued dividends or undergone major changes such as spin-offs or mergers during their time in the index. Therefore, in order to account for all those changes, the stock prices of the 30 component stocks are added together and then divided by the divisorŽ (which is adjusted frequently and was recently 0.14748071991788). To understand how each stock affects the average, know that if, say, Visa stock rises by $10, you can just divide 10 by the divisor and learn that the DJIA will rise by about 67.81 points (10 divided by 0.14748071991788 equals 67.805).***QWhat are orphan drugsŽ in the pharmaceutical world? „ T.B., Hattiesburg, MississippiAThe U.S. Food & Drug Administration has an Orphan Drug Designation program, offering incentives for companies to develop drugs to treat, diagnose or prevent rare diseases/disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S., or that affect more than 200,000 persons but are not expected to recover the costs of developing and marketing a treatment drug.Ž Since many of these drugs end up with steep prices, they can make a lot of money for biotech and pharmaceutical companies.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolWhen to Sell Your StocksWhen the price of a particular stock suddenly drops sharply, many shareholders rush to sell it. Many sell their stocks when the market suddenly heads south, too. Those can be costly mistakes, though. Dont sell just because a stock or the market is falling, or youve heard some rumors, or someone tells you to sell. Here are good reasons to consider selling: € If you cant remember why you bought the stock. € If you cant explain exactly how the company makes money. € If you hold too many or too few stocks. Portfolios should be diversified, but not too diversified. Aiming for around eight to 15 companies is good for most people. € If the reason you bought shares is no longer valid. For example, maybe the company is suddenly facing strong competition. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: May I say something about people who call friendsŽ or others they havent talked to recently while theyre driving to an appointment or other errand, only to abruptly end the conversation when the destination is reached? Two people have done this to me recently. One was an old friend I hadnt seen in 13 years. As soon as the destination was reached, I heard an abrupt, Well, Im here ... talk to ya later!Ž Click! I think its incredibly rude. Its as if the recipient of the call is merely an afterthought to alleviate boredom while driving. No matter what the recipient feels or wants to say, the conversation is ended. To be clear: I do not have a reputation of talking too much or extending phone conversations. Talkativeness on my part was not a reason for this behavior. I feel if someone wants to talk to me and respects me as an individual, the conversation should be a MUTUAL interaction „ not something crammed into the callers schedule. Id rather the person not call than treat me like a second-class citizen. „ DEAR WANTING: My mother used to complain to me about the same thing when another relative did it with her. (Im home now, gotta go!Ž) I dont think people who do this mean to be rude; they may simply be overscheduled. However, I agree that its insensitive and, because it bothered you, I hope you made your feelings known. Im glad you wrote because it happens often, I suspect, and not just to you. DEAR ABBY: Life hasnt been easy for me. I taught in inner-city schools for 35 years and lost three life partners who were addicted to alcohol and drugs before they died of AIDS. Out of necessity, I had to carry on with my professional life while struggling with my unfortunate personal life. Im happily retired now and living a wonderful life in Palm Springs, California. But sometimes I nd myself starting to dwell on unhappy memories from my past. When it happens, I have found an eective coping method. It came from a simple mantra a former student of mine posted online: Theres a reason the rearview mirror is so small and the windshield is so large. Its because where youre headed is much more important than where youve been.Ž Now, when a sad memory comes to mind, I say to myself, big windshield; small rearview mirror,Ž let go of the unwanted thought and move on. This has been benecial for my well-being, and I hope it will be for others. „ DESERT JACK DEAR JACK: Im glad you shared this. Clinging to loss and sadness isnt healthy for anyone. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to keep the past behind us rather than let it clutter up our present. Thank you for sharing your coping method. I, too, hope it will help readers.

Second rule of storage: Make a specic place for everything „ and keep the right thing in the right place. If you do this, you will avoid a frustrating and time-consuming search for what youre trying to nd. Use dividers: There are many kinds of dividers, like plastic cutlery trays, to help separate and organize objects. Closed storage: Store as much of your stu behind closed doors!

There are specic disposal recommendations for all of the dierent types of batteries we use today. States have regulations about handling this. You can call your local trash company or city recycling center for detailed information about what to do, but briey here is how to get rid of batteries safely: „Single-use alkaline batteries can be tossed into the trash, but if you are going to a recycling center, include them. „Rechargeable lithium ion batteries always should be recycled. Do not put them into your household garbage.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 They are undermining the moderate forces in Palestine and Israel,Ž he added. Those elements that want to achieve peace peacefully based on a two-state solution are being destroyed.Ž He said extremists across the region had been given gifts.Ž UNRWA was established after the war surrounding Israels establishment in 1948 to aid the 700,000 Palestinians who ”ed or were forced from their homes. Today, it provides education, health care and social services to some 5 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. The agency is also a major employer in the Palestinian areas. The U.S. in recent years has supplied nearly 30 percent of UNRWAs budget. But early this year, it suspended roughly $300 million in planned assistance, pending a review. Fridays decision formally cut that money, as well as future assistance to the agency. In a statement, the U.S. called the agency an irredeemably ”awed operation.Ž It said the U.S. was no longer willing to pay for a very disproportionate shareŽ of UNRWAs costs and criticized what it called the agencys fundamental business model and “scal practicesŽ and its endlessly and exponentially expanding community of entitled bene“ciaries.Ž The statement largely echoed Israeli claims that UNRWA perpetuates the con”ict by promoting an unrealistic Palestinian demand that refugees have the right of returnŽ to long-lost homes in what is now Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said UNRWA should be abolished and its responsibilities taken over by the main U.N. refugee agency. In Lebanon on Friday, the U.N. refugee agencys commissioner, Filipo Grandi, ruled out taking on the Palestinian refugee issue. No! The Palestinians in the region are the responsibility of UNRWA,Ž he said. UNRWAs spokesman, Chris Gunness, said the agency expressed deep regret and disappointmentŽ with the U.S. decision. He rejected in the strongest possible termsŽ the U.S. accusations that its operations are ”awed. The European Union, the largest contributor to UNRWA with its member states, urged the U.S. to reconsider its regrettable decision.Ž It said it would continue its assistance to the agency and discuss funding alternatives with other partners. The U.S. budget cuts have already hit UNRWA hard. In an interview with The Associated Press last month, UNRWAs commissioner, Pierre Kraehenbuehl, said his agency only had enough money to operate its hundreds of schools through the end of September. He said he is planning a major fundraising campaign to keep operations a”oat. He also rejected Israeli arguments that UNRWA perpetuates the Israeli-Palestinian con”ict. He said his agency operates under a mandate approved by the U.N. General Assembly and that the refugee issue must be resolved as part of a broader solution to the overall con”ict. Some in Israel have leveled even tougher criticism, accusing UNRWA of teaching hatred of Israel in its classrooms and tolerating or assisting Hamas, the militant Islamic group that rules Gaza. Kraehenbuehl rejected the accusations, saying his agency is a source of moderation and has condemned attempts by militants to use his facilities for cover. The Palestinian Authority, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, seeks the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem „ areas captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005 and Hamas, after winning legislative elections, forcibly seized control of the territory from Abbas two years later. Trump has broken from a string of predecessors and is no longer demanding the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of a peace agreement. Netanyahu, who brie”y endorsed the two-state solution during the Obama administration, no longer mentions the idea as a way of resolving the con”ict. The Palestinian Authority, citing what it says is a pro-Israeli bias, broke off contact with the U.S. after the Jerusalem announcement and has said it will not accept the administrations upcoming peace proposal. Trump already has said his recognition of Jerusalem was meant to remove the issue from the negotiating table. The Palestinians now fear the U.S. is putting pressure on host countries like Lebanon, Jordan and Syria to absorb their refugee populations and eliminate that issue from future peace negotiations. Abbas spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdeneh, said the U.S. decision does not serve peace but rather strengthens terrorism in the regionŽ and urged the U.N. to take a “rm standŽ against the Americans. In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem accused the United States of going after UNRWA to eliminate the Palestinian right to return to their future homes. Its clear that Trump has shifted from taking sides with the Israeli enemy to being a partner in the assault on our Palestinian peoples rights,Ž he said. All these decisions will not stop our peoples struggle to gain freedom and return.ŽFUNDINGFROM PAGE 1 closed-door hearing with an investigating judge on Monday. Dutch of“cials did not disclose the charges he could face. A statement issued late Friday by Amsterdams city council said the Americans did not appear to have been victims of a targeted attack. Amsterdam authorities also said Friday that it appeared from initial inquiries that the victims werent chosen for a clear reason. The local government said Saturday it had no immediate plans to beef up security in the city, saying the swift action by police shows that Amsterdam is prepared for this kind of incident.Ž A passerbys dramatic photo showed two police of“cers pointing guns at a man in blue jeans and sneakers lying on the ground inside a train station tunnel. Earlier Saturday, the U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands con“rmed that the two people injured Friday were Americans visiting the Netherlands when they were stabbed at the station. Ambassador Pete Hoekstra issued a written statement saying U.S. Embassy of“cials had been in touch with the victims or their families. We wish them a speedy recovery and are working closely with the City of Amsterdam to provide assistance to them and their families,Ž Hoekstra said.

Trailing 16-15 after missing a two-point conversion on their opening drive of the game, Auburn drove 76 yards in 10 plays for the winning score. Jarrett Stidham kept the drive going early with a 12-yard pass to Chandler Cox on third-and-9. Then, facing third-and-7 deep in Washington territory, Auburn handed off inside to Whitlow, who knocked over a Washington defender as he smashed into the end zone. Washington drove to the Auburn 37 with plenty of time to pull off the comeback, but Myles Gaskin was thrown for a 3-yard loss and Jake Browning was stymied by a “erce pass rush on back-to-back plays to preserve the Tigers victory. Stidham was 26 of 36 for 273 yards for Auburn, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Sal Cannella, who made a leaping grab in the end zone before landing ”at on his back. Browning, looking to bounce back from a disappointing junior season, completed 18 of 32 for 296 yards. He was picked off once but connected with Quinten Pounds on a 13yard touchdown in the “nal minute of the “rst half Peyton Henry put the Huskies ahead for the “rst time with his third “eld goal, a 30-yarder that clanked off the right upright but ricocheted through with 14:06 remaining. Both teams squandered scoring chances. Anders Carlson, taking over from older brother Daniel as Auburns kicker, connected on three “eld goals „ including a 53-yarder „ but also missed from 33 and 54 yards. Washington was kicking itself after coming away from a “rst-and-goal with no points. On third down at the 3, Browning rolled right looking to make a pitch only to be smacked by Nick Poe. The ball squirted free and Auburns Darrell Williams fell on it at the 20. Another chance was wasted when Henry shanked a 40-yard “eld goal attempt.The TakeawayWashington: Aaron Fuller addressed what was perhaps the biggest question mark on the Huskies roster, showing he had all the makings of a No. 1 receiver with seven catches for 135 yards. But Washington will have to overcome an early blemish on its record to get into the playoff mix. Auburn: The Tigers picked up a win that should come in very handy if theyre in postseason contention late in the season. The victory really felt good for a team that closed last season with two straight losses at MercedesBenz Stadium, falling to Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game and to Central Florida in the Peach Bowl.Up NextWashington: The Huskies return to Seattle to host FCS opponent North Dakota, which opened its season with a 35-7 victory over Mississippi Valley State. Auburn: The Tigers also face an FCS school, Alabama State, in their home opener at JordanHare Stadium. It will be the first game between the schools, even though they are only about 50 miles apart. Auburn is wrapping up its commitment to play every in-state FCS school over a six-year period, having already faced Alabama A&M, Jacksonville State and Samford.By MATT BAKERTAMPA BAY TIMESThis offense could be entertaining. As promised, Mullen used Feleipe Franks mobility through designed runs and impromptu scrambles. The redshirt sophomore rushed five times for 34 yards in the first half; he rushed for more yards only once last season, and almost all of that was from his 79-yard scramble against Texas A&M. Franks arm fit the system, too, with some downfield shots mixed with quick hits to his playmakers in a 16-of24, 219-yard performance. Franks became the first UF quarterback since Rex Grossman in 2000 to throw five touchdowns in the first half. The Gators went the entire Jim McElwain era without recording five passing touchdowns in a game. Mullen probably left a lot of plays uncalled, but he still showed some ingenuity. Franks dumped a shovel pass to tight end Kemore Gamble out of an option play. At the end of the first half, Franks hit Tyrie Cleveland on a jump pass … an obvious wink from Mullen to his history with Tim Tebow. If this is a Mullen offense in a blowout, how will it look when he needs to get creative against Mississippi State or LSU? Two transfers are going to be among the Gators top players. This isnt a surprise, given how Trevon Grimes (Ohio State) and Van Jefferson (Ole Miss) looked in spring practice and fall camp. But they made immediate impacts. Grimes, took a screen pass from Franks and AREA PREPS: Cross Country CFB: #9 Auburn 21, #6 Washington 16 CFB: Florida 53, Charleston Southern 6Auburn beats Washington 21-16 AP PHOTOAuburn tight end Sal Cannella 80 makes a catch for a touchdown as Washington defensive backs Jordan Miller and JoJo McIntosh de fend in the “rst half of an NCAA college football game on Saturday.

Snell (17-5) allowed two runs in 6 2/3 innings, giving up both runs in the second with one being unearned thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Matt Duffy. The left-hander worked around trouble early in the game, but retired nine of the last 10 hitters he faced and struck out the side in the sixth. Snell is tied with New Yorks Luis Severino and Clevelands Corey Kluber „ two other top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award „ for the most wins in the majors. Snell is 5-0 in his last six starts. Tampa Bay scored four times in the sixth off Shane Bieber (8-3). Matt Duffy tied the game with a two-run double. Tommy Phams RBI double put the Rays ahead before Kevin Kiermaier added a run-scoring single. Brandon Lowe homered off the foul pole in right “eld to in the ninth. Jason Kipnis, whose playing time will decrease after the Indians acquired third baseman Josh Donaldson from Toronto on Friday, started the ninth with a pinch-hit home run off Chaz Roe. Roe retired the next two hitters and Adam Kolarek got pinch-hitter Yonder Alonso for his second save. Duffys two-base error on Brandon Guyers ground ball started Clevelands rally in the second. Melky Cabrera and Yan Gomes drove in runs with back-to-back doubles. Snell retired the next two hitters before Michael Brantley singled to center. Gomes was waved home, but was an easy out at the plate on Kiermaiers throw. Clevelands lead quickly disappeared in the sixth. Brandon Lowe singled and took third on Joey Wendles double. Duffys double down the right “eld line tied the game. Phams one-out double to left-center gave Tampa Bay the lead and “nished Bieber. Kiermaiers single off Tyler Olson scored Pham with the run being charged to Bieber. The rookie right-hander allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings. Donaldson arrived at the ballpark shortly before game-time after having ”ight issues Saturday that delayed him getting into town. The 2015 AL MVP was given a loud ovation and waved to the crowd when he was shown from the dugout on the scoreboard in the seventh inning. Donaldson has been sidelined for three months by a strained calf and its not clear when hell make his Indians debut. Donaldson will play third base with AllStar Jose Ramirez moving to second.TRAINERS ROOMRays: Kiermaier was removed the game in the seventh inning because of back spasms. Indians: Manager Terry Francona said additional tests on the stress fracture in Trevor Bauers right leg showed minimal improvement, a diagnosis the team was expecting. Bauer was hit by a line drive Aug. 11. The team is still hopeful hell return before the regular season ends.UP NEXTIndians RHP Carlos Carrasco (16-7, 3,38 ERA), who is 8-2 in his last 11 starts, will start the series “nale on Monday.

Runners found themselves having to traverse a cross country course that featured a uninviting hill, one they would have to run twice, said Chris George, Charlotte Tarpons cross country coach. Thats a true cross country, running through water, sugar sand and over hills,Ž said George. The weather this past week wreaked havoc in terms of preparing for this Saturdays race, as the Tarpons had to cancel practices and shorten others, with the roster having to modify and adjust their schedules by running on their own. The whole goal each week is to chip away at their time and get faster,Ž said George. I told the guys, even though were getting affected by the lightning and rain, and we cant practice as a team, that doesnt mean that you cant train on your own.

Saturday saw the Tarpons open against the eventual tournament winner Chiles, ultimately losing the contest, but modifying their approach that would yield benefits in later matches. Charlotte found themselves posting wins against Carrollwood Day School South Fork. Coach Michelle Dill, made some adjustments, moving a couple of players around and switching up the Tarpons rotation during the first game against Chiles, to see what would work, and by the end of the day, there was a noticeable difference. I liked what I saw,Ž said Dill. Its started clicking in the second set of that match. I knew going into this tournament it was going to be really tough.Ž The Lady Tarpons were paced by Shelby Beisner, who had eight kills, 23 total attack attempts, and 16 digs; Kaitlyn Chavarria, who had eight kills and 14 total attack attempts; Ashleigh Miller had five block solos; Skylar Gribben had five kills, 14 total attack attempts and seven digs; Eva Le had seven digs, and Kelsey Nolan had six digs.Lady Tarpons enjoy successful tournament KAT GODINARight: Charlottes Shelby Beisner tips over the Desoto block of Hannah Rast (15) and Zakaria Burroughs (4) during Thursdays game

RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERSOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) „ Brandon Wimbush connected on a long touchdown pass to help No. 12 Notre Dame jump out to a big “rst-half lead, Tevon Coney and the defense made it stand with a late takeaway, and the Fighting Irish beat No. 14 Michigan 24-17 on Saturday night as the rivalry returned after a three-year hiatus. A Green-out crowd welcomed the Wolverines back to Notre Dame Stadium and the Fighting Irish scored fast on their “rst two drives against a defense loaded with future NFL draft picks. Chris Finke hauled in a deep throw from Wimbush that went through a defenders hands in traf“c for a 43-yard score to put Notre Dame up 14-0 midway through the “rst half. Jafar Armstrongs second touchdown, a 4-yard run with 3:55 left in the second quarter made it 21-3. Ambry Thomas gave the Wolverines a much-needed jolted with a 99-yard touchdown on the ensuing kickoff, but otherwise the Michigan debut of quarterback Shea Patterson was mostly disappointing. Michigans only offensive touchdown came with 2:18 left in the fourth quarter, when Karan Higdon rushed in from 3 yards to cut the lead to seven. Patterson, the touted transfer from Mississippi, went 20 for 30 for 227 yards and faced steady pressure. Michigan got a “nal opportunity with 1:48 and got as far as its 45. Patterson was ”ushed out of the pocket, grabbed by Jerry Tillery and stripped by Khalid Kareem. Coney recovered the loose ball with 46 seconds and sealed Notre Dames second straight win against the Wolverines. When they last met in 2014, Notre Dame snapped Michigans streak of 365 consecutive games without being shut out with a 31-0 win. That loss also marked the beginning of the end of Brady Hokes tenure as Michigan coach. Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh does not come into this season fretting his job, but make no mistake his program could use a change in trajectory. The Wolverines are now 9-9 in their last 18 games and Michigan has dropped 17 straight road games against a ranked team, dating to 2006. Harbaugh also fell to 1-6 against the schools biggest rivals, Ohio State, Michigan State and Notre Dame.The TakeawayMichigan: The addition of Patterson was supposed to make a vanilla Michigan offense more dynamic, but until the line play improves there is only so much that can be expected from the former “ve-star recruit. Pattersons lone interception came on a play when both the running back and center whiffed on a blitzing Coney. Notre Dame: Have to give some credit to the Irish defense, a unit that returned most of its best players from last season and but has a new coordinator in Clark Lea, who was promoted when Mike Elko left after one season for Texas A&M.Up NextMichigan: The Wolverines return home to face Western Michigan. They have a chance to string together a few victories over the next month, but it will be the middle of October before Michigan gets another chance to show it can win big games. Notre Dame: The Irish are home for Ball State in what looks like the softest spot on their schedule. By CLIFF BRUNTAP SPORTS WRITERNORMAN, Okla. (AP) „ Kyler Murray wasnt worried about replacing Heisman Trophy winner Baker May“eld as Oklahomas quarterback. The junior passed for 209 yards and two touchdowns to lead the seventh-ranked Sooners past Florida Atlantic 63-14 on Saturday. Murray, a “rst-round Major League Baseball draft pick who chose to return to school, connected on 9 of 11 passes in just under one half of action. He also ran for 23 yards on four carries in just his second college start since transferring from Texas A&M after the 2015 season. I woke up, I was pretty calm, pretty composed,Ž Murray said. Im a veteran as far as football goes. Ive played a lot of football, so the nerves didnt really hit me since Ive been there and done it before. When youre prepared for something, its hard to be nervous.Ž Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley liked what he saw from Murray. I thought he was ef“cient and commanded our group,Ž Riley said. I thought he did a nice job.Ž Marquise Brown caught six passes for 133 yards and a touchdown, and Rodney Anderson rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on just “ve carries. Lee Morris caught a 65-yard touchdown pass and blocked a punt for the Sooners. Oklahoma led 42-0 at halftime „ the most points the Sooners have scored in a “rst half since 2008. By the games end, Oklahoma outgained Florida Atlantic 650 yards to 324. Id be shocked if theres a better team in the country than what I saw today,Ž Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kif“n said. Defense much improved, and obviously, that was their area of weakness last year.Ž Former Oklahoma quarterback Chris Robison passed for 157 yards for Florida Atlantic. Oklahoma dismissed him last year for violating team rules. Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary, a third-team All-American last season, was held to 69 yards on 18 carries. By JEFFREY COLLINSASSOCIATED PRESSCLEMSON, S.C. (AP) „ One game against an overwhelmed opponent isnt enough to push the highly touted freshman quarterback at Clemson past the veteran starter. Freshman Trevor Lawrence threw three touchdown passes and scored on all “ve of his drives to help No. 2 Clemson beat Football Championship Subdivision Furman 48-7 on Saturday. But senior starter Kelly Bryant had a touchdown pass of his own. Lawrence completed 10 passes and Bryant completed nine. Both missed some throws. Both made some great throws,Ž Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said after rattling off their stats and emphasizing how similar they were. It was the romp everyone expected as Clemson overmatched the Paladins. Clemson is 33-0 against FCS teams, only once winning by less than 10 points. Swinney said he let his quarterback rotation go as planned. Bryant played the “rst quarter, Lawrence played the second quarter and they each got two drives to start the second half. Lawrence was 9 for 15 for 137 yards. His best pass was a 40yard strike where only Cornell Powell could get to it when Furman jumped offside and the freshman recognized he had a free play. Several of Lawrences incompletions were behind receivers or overthrown. Its made me better,Ž Lawrence said about having to compete for the job after four years as a star in high school, breaking several records set by Deshaun Watson, the former Tigers star who shoved aside a veteran as a freshman to start in 2014. Bryant, who started every game in Clemsons playoff run last year, went 9 for 15 for 137 yards. Bryant threw several passes at the feet of his receivers. He did show some nice moves on a 35-yard touchdown run „ mobility Lawrence doesnt quite have. Bryant has thrown for 15 touchdowns and run for 15 TDs in his career. Bryant also was one of the first players to congratulate Lawrence when he scored his first college touchdown. Ive been in his shoes,Ž Bryant said. My first touchdown, Deshaun congratulated me.Ž With all the talk about depth with a Clemson team that brought back 15 of 22 starters, plenty of newcomers took advantage of their opportunities. Freshman receiver Justyn Ross and freshman tight end Braden Galloway caught the Tigers final two touchdowns. Freshman Lyn-J Dixon led the team with 89 yards on six carries, his Clemson debut was a 16-yard run and he followed it with a 61-yard run the next play. Honestly, with that many young wideouts, I wasnt watching the quarterbacks,Ž co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said.

(AP) „ Blake Barnett threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth score in his South Florida debut and the Bulls beat Elon 34-14 in Saturday nights season opener. The 6-foot-5, 217-pounder, the opening-game starter for Alabama two years ago who left the Crimson Tide in September 2016 and continued his career as a backup at Arizona State last season, completed 24 of 34 passes for 305 yards. Barnett is replacing USFs career total offense leader Quinton Flowers, who threw for 2,911 yards and 25 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,078 yards and 11 TDs last season. Backup Elon quarterback Jalen Greene entered in the third quarter and picked up 87 rushing yards in nine attempts. Malcolm Summers had 62 yards on 15 carries, while starting QB Davis Cheek went 5 for 11 for 45 yards passing. USF scored on its “rst possession on “ve-play drive that was completed when Barnett connected with Randall St. Felix on a 40yard TD pass to cap USFs “rst possession, then hit St. Felix on a 52-yard completion that set up a 33-yard “eld goal by Jake Vivonetto for a 10-0 lead. St. Felix gained 143 yards on seven receptions. After Elon turned the ball over on its next possession, Barnett hit Tyre McCants for a 16-yard touchdown then connected with Mitchell Wilcox on a 14-yarder for a 17-0 halftime lead. Barnett added a 2-yard rushing score midway through the third quarter. Greene scored from 12 yards out late in the third before Brelynd Cyphers 2-yard scoring run with 13 minutes left cut the Elon de“cit to 31-14.Murray leads Oklahoma past FAUNo. 2 Clemson pounds Furman 48-7By MITCH STACYAP SPORTS WRITERCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Ohio State came into the opener with a standin coach and a new starting quarterback after a truly bizarre preseason that led to a three-game suspension for coach Urban Meyer. The day worked out OK for the offensively proli“c No. 5 Buckeyes, though their defense might still be more of a work in progress than expected. New starter Dwayne Haskins Jr. threw for a record “ve touchdowns as Ohio State scored on “ve of its “rst six possessions and cruised to a 77-31 rout of overmatched Oregon State on Saturday. The Buckeyes shook off Meyers “rst absence from the sideline in six years, piling up 721 yards and tying the record for points scored in an opener. Meyer will be allowed to return to practice on Monday, although his suspension by the university will last for two more games. He was sanctioned after an investigation showed he mismanaged former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other bad behavior. The scandal has dogged the program for the past month. Acting coach Ryan Day wasnt surprised the Buckeyes started strong, jumping ahead 21-7 in the “rst quarter and going ahead 42-14 at halftime. There was a quiet con“dence about this team all along,Ž said Day, the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Haskins, who took the keys from four-year starter J.T. Barrett, was 22 for 30 for 313 yards. The “ve touchdowns and yards gained are records for a “rst-time Ohio State starter. Day coached from the sideline, with co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson in the press box. I didnt notice anything different,Ž Haskins said. Just having coach Wilson on the “eld vs. coach Day, they both did a great job giving advice, communicating with me after the drives. There wasnt any stress with that.ŽBright spots for beaversOregon State was able to exploit the Ohio State defense, just not enough. Quarterback Conor Blount, forced into duty when starter Jake Luton went out with a possible concussion on the games sixth play, found plenty of cracks, throwing for 169 yards and two touchdowns. But he also was sacked “ve times in the “rst half, twice by All-American defensive end Nick Bosa. Running back Artavis Pierce slashed the Ohio State secondary for touchdowns of 80 and 78 yards on two of the Beavers “rst three plays from scrimmage in the second half. Oregon State piled up 392 offensive yards. Obviously, falling short isnt fun, but when you go out and put 31 points on a defense like that, I think it says theres a bright future here,Ž Blount said.Meyer-less Buckeyes routs Oregon St in openerBarnetts strong debut helps USF beat Elon 34-14No. 12 Notre Dame beats No. 14 Michigan 24-17 AP PHOTONotre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush throws against the Michigan in the “rst half of an NCAA football game on Saturday.

(AP) „ Amani Oruwariye intercepted a Zac Thomas pass in the end zone and No. 10 Penn State held on to beat Appalachian State 45-38 in overtime on Saturday, exactly 11 years after the Mountaineers stunned Michigan in one of the biggest upsets in college football history. Miles Sanders rushed 19 times for 91 yards with two touchdowns including the go-ahead score in overtime for the Nittany Lions (1-0). But Penn State let a 31-17 lead evaporate when Appalachian State scored on three straight possessions over 5:53 in the fourth quarter and things were tense in Happy Valley. Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley, who completed 21 of 36 passes for 230 yards and ran for two scores, led a game-tying drive that ended with a 15-yard touchdown pass to KJ Hamler with 42 seconds left. Thomas, who returned from injury to lead his teams comeback, completed 25 of 38 passes for 270 yards, threw for two touchdowns and ran for another for Appalachian State (0-1). Jalin Moore ran 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and Malik Williams caught two touchdowns for the Mountaineers. In 2007, it was No. 5. Michigan “ghting for its life at home against a Division I-AA team and when Corey Lynch blocked Michigans “eld-goal attempt it sealed a 34-32 win. No Division I-AA team had ever beaten a team ranked in The Associated Press Top 25 poll between 1989 and 2006, and its unlikely it had ever happened before. Afterward, the AP changed the way it conducted its poll, allowing schools from all divisions to be eligible to receive votes. Fast forward to 2018 and it was another storied Big Ten team on its heels against the Mountaineers, a Sun Belt Conference powerhouse that went 8-4 a year ago. Mountaineers kicker Chandler Stanton added a “eld goal but missed a 56-yarder wide right with 20 seconds left. Jake Pinegar kicked a 32-yard “eld goal for Penn State to tie the game 10-10 just before halftime. By DAVID GINSBURGAP SPORTS WRITERLANDOVER, Md. (AP) „ It was one of those rare occurrences when the sequel proved even more impressive than the original. Maryland emerged from a trying offseason with an emotionally charged 34-29 upset of No. 23 Texas on Saturday, shaking off a lengthy weather delay to provide Matt Canada a satisfying victory in his debut at the Terrapins interim coach. After blowing a 24-7 lead, Maryland forced three turnovers in the “nal 6:09 and scored the games “nal 10 points to stun the Longhorns in the opener for the second year in a row. As remarkable as last seasons 51-41 win at Texas was, this victory was far more notable because of what they endured this summer. Maryland has dedicated its season to offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who collapsed on the practice “eld on May 29 and died two weeks later of heatstroke. The Terrapins paid tribute to McNair by lining up with 10 players on their “rst offensive play. Maryland waited for a delay of game to be called, and Texas declined the penalty in a show of sportsmanship. Maryland players wore a sticker No. 79 on their helmets and emerged from the tunnel with one of his former teammates carrying a red ”ag, also emblazoned with McNairs number. In addition, there was a moment of silence before the game. The circumstances surrounding the medical treatment administered to McNair on the scene, as well as charges of bullying by the coaching staff, led to the university placing head coach DJ Durkin on administrative leave and the resignation of strength coach Rick Court. Canada, the offensive coordinator, was named the interim coach. To his credit, he put in a strong offensive game plan and had his team ready to play. I just cant say enough about our players, everything theyve been through and the way they stuck together,Ž Canada said. It was a great way to honor Jordan. This was a win for Jordan. Were certainly proud of our team, proud of our program.Ž Freshman Jeshaun Jones ran for a score, threw for one and caught a 65-yard TD pass. Quarterback Kasim Hill went 17 for 29 for 222 yards. Everything that has happened this summer has brought us closer together,Ž Hill said. It was just fun to be back out there.Ž Now in their second year under coach Tom Herman, the Longhorns “gured this opener would be different. It was not. A lot of people are going to say it feels a lot like last year,Ž Herman said. It doesnt to me.Ž Texas took its “rst lead in the third quarter after Canada opted to keep his offense on the “eld for a fourth-and-1 from the Maryland 36. Hill was stuffed for no gain, Kyle Porter scored from the 2 to make it 29-24. After Hill directed a 79-yard drive that put the Terps back in front with 14:25 remaining, a potential thunderstorm caused a delay of 86 minutes. Texas came out ”at after the stoppage. This is not much of a setback,Ž left guard Patrick Vahe insisted. We just have to learn from all of the mistakes we had in this game.Ž The game began with teams putting up 21 points in just over seven minutes. Jones opened with a 28-yard touchdown run, Longhorns junior Devin Duvernay caught a 39-yard pass in the end zone and Jones followed with a TD catch. In the second quarter, the Terrapins cashed in on a 15-yard punt, getting a halfback-option throw from Jones to Taivon Jacobs for a 24-7 lead. The Longhorns nearly pulled even by halftime. A touchdown run by Keaontay Ingram, a safety and an excellent catch in the end zone by Collin Johnson made it 24-22 at the break. CFB: West Virginia 40, Tennessee 14 CFB: #10 Penn.

By STEVE REEDAP SPORTS WRITERCHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) „ Will Grier got his Heisman Trophy campaign off to an impressive start, throwing for 429 yards and “ve touchdowns as No. 17 West Virginia defeated Tennessee 40-14 Saturday in a game delayed for more than an hour at halftime due to lightning. Leading 13-7 at halftime, the Associated Press preseason All-American turned up the heat in the third quarter, connecting on touchdown passes of 33 yards to David Sills, 28 yards to Gary Jennings, and 14 yards to Kennedy McCoy as the Mountaineers opened a 33-14 lead. Grier, who grew up in the Charlotte area and once threw for 10 TD passes in a high school playoff game, was 14 of 19 for 275 yards and four TDs in the second half. Sills had seven grabs for 140 yards and two touchdowns after 18 TD receptions last season. Tim Jordan ran for 118 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown for Tennessee, which lost in Jeremy Pruitts head coaching debut. Pruitt won six national championships as a defensive coach, including last year at Alabama, but his Vols had no answer for Grier and the high-powered Mountaineers offense.The TakeawayTennessee: Jarrett Guarantano got the starting nod at quarterback over Keller Chryst and struggled at times. The Vols had only one passing play of longer than 20 yards and Guarantano was limited to 172 yards passing. West Virginia: While Grier lived up to his preseason hype, what might have been most impressive for the Mountaineers was the play of their defense in holding the Vols to just two touchdowns. They set the tone for the game by forcing Tennessee to go three-and-out on the games “rst possession after two tackles for a loss of 15 yards.Grier leads West Virginia past Tennessee 40-14 AP PHOTOWest Virginias Will Grier looks to pass against Tennessee in the “rst half of Saturdays game.Maryland stuns No. 23 Texas 34-29 for interim coach Canada AP PHOTOMaryland wide receiver Taivon Jacobs, left, catches a touchdown pass in front of Texas defensive back Kobe Boyce in the “rst ha lf of an NCAA college football game on Saturday.

(AP) „ Too embarrassed to be seen shopping for golf equipment, Tyrrell Hatton of England sent his caddie to the store to buy him a putter. For now, it looks like a steal. Hatton one-putted six consecutive greens, “ve of them for birdies, on his way to an 8-under 63 to share the early lead with Justin Rose in a Dell Technologies Championship with an English look on Labor Day weekend. Along with Hatton and Rose (67) tied for the lead at 10-under 132, Tommy Fleetwood of England had a 65 and was two shots behind. Tiger Woods was among those playing Saturday afternoon. Hatton, already assured a spot on his “rst Ryder Cup team, was down on his putting last week in New Jersey when he decided to try a new putter. The equipment trucks typically leave on Wednesday, so his only option was to buy one. He sent his caddie to a Golf Galaxy store in Paramus, New Jersey, using a video app to make the selection. I was too embarrassed to go into the store to buy a putter. Obviously, he made a good choice,Ž Hatton said. It cost $149 before taxes, according to the receipt that Hatton tweeted after he shot 65 in the “nal round last week at Ridgewood. It worked even better Saturday morning at the TPC Boston. That stretch of six oneputts included the par-5 second hole, where Hatton put his second shot into the water and saved par with a 6-foot putt. Rose opened with a 65 on Friday, and it didnt take long to notice the scores much lower in the second round. Hatton was 8 under through 14 holes and had to settle for pars the rest of the way. Rose “nished his back nine with a pair of birdies, made two more in the early part of the front nine and managed to keep pace.By DAN GELSTONAP SPORTS WRITERNEW YORK (AP) „ Dickie V found a totally awesome PTPer in the U.S Opens womens bracket. His pick is on point „ Madison Keys knows how to make a Final Four. Madisons backhand is lethal !Ž Vitale tweeted Saturday from the Open Her physical skills r #awesomebaby.Ž Keys was one of the fortunate favorites in the Open, as she survived-and-advanced to the Sweet 16. But much like Vitale would say in a March stuffed with busted brackets, the womens side is loaded with upset specials. Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber was the latest single-digit seed eliminated, leaving none of this years Grand Slam winners left in the U.S. Open. No. 29 seed Dominika Cibulkova rallied Saturday to beat the fourth-seeded Kerber 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, leaving only one of the top-four seeds on the womens side in the tournament after three rounds. I was not able actually to play my best tennis in the important moment,Ž Kerber said. Join the club. Top-ranked Simona Halep, the French Open champion, was eliminated in the “rst round. Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki, the No. 2 seed, fell in the second. Only No. 3 seed and defending champion Sloane Stephens remains among the top-four seeds. Just a quick scan of the bracket “nds more early exits. On Saturday, sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia and No. 13 seed Kiki Bertens were eliminated in three sets. The early stunners seem to clear the “eld for No. 17 seed, oh, and sixtime champion, Serena Williams to steamroll toward another title.

Jefferson scored twice in the second quarter, both on short passes in the red zone where he could use his 6-foot-2, 197-pound frame. Expect more big plays from both once the schedule heats up. After catching only 26 passes last season, tight ends had four receptions in the first half Saturday and couldnt reel in two other catchable balls in Franks first three throws. R.J. Raymond had one of those misses but atoned for it on the next play with a key block that helped spring Grimes score. Seven players were suspended, including defensive lineman Cece Jefferson (academics) and receiver Kadarius Toney (who was involved in several off-field incidents, including being stopped by police with a loaded AR-15 in his backseat). Running back Adarius Lemons (a Clearwater native) was out, too, and three other starters were benched for the first series. Then again, McElwain preached discipline, too. He infamously erupted at running back Kelvin Taylor in Week 2 of his first season and talked a lot about how freedom of choice didnt mean freedom from consequence. Well see whether Mullens message resonates. After blocking only three kicks or punts under McElwain, the Gators blocked two Saturday night „ the first time theyve done so since the Sugar Bowl in January 2013. Hillsborough High alumnus Zachary Carter swatted a field goal to end the first half, and Jeremiah Moon blocked an extra point in the fourth quarter (which Austin Perry returned for two points). UF also narrowly missed blocking a punt in the first half. Its too early to know whether those moments were because of UFs improvement or an overwhelmed opponent, but Mullens emphasis on the third phase of the game is undeniable.GATORSFROM PAGE 1
