Sears, Macys and J.C. Penney continue to shut down operations around the country, but not at Port Charlotte Town Center, where the big-box retailers continue to serve as anchors. Sears Holdings is the latest to announce yet another round, pulling the plug on 46 spots including its longtime stronghold at Coastland Center in Naples. Meanwhile, Charlotte was not on the list. Also chugging along is the Sears Hometown Store in Englewood. And Port Charlotte was spared earlier this year as Macys closed venues in San Francisco, Miami, Los Angeles and Burlington, Vermont. North Ports 375,000-square foot Cocoplum Village Shops, which opened in 2010 as the trade areas “ rst regional outdoor shopping power center in more than a quarter-century, keeps adding new stores. Dicks Sporting Goods debuted earlier this month. And while Kmart shopping centers remain empty around the nation as those stores disintegrate, it didnt take long for the shuttered 9-acre Port Charlotte location to draw interest from other major chains. The Port Charlotte Marketplace is emerging now, alongside other businesses that already have a presence in the Cochran Boulevard corridor. Among the several new entries coming to the redeveloping 166,000-square-foot space: Ross department store, Luckys Market, Burlington Coat Factory and HomeGoods, which is scheduled to open next month. Online shopping may be a train that you cannot stop,Ž according to Anita Rose, a business professor at Florida SouthWestern State College. But for a demographic „ namely, the older age group that populates the area „ shopping is about seeing things and holding them in your hands, she said. We are all so conditioned to buying in a certain way,Ž said Rose, who at 62 is indicative of the market of which she speaks. That Bucking national trends, local chains thriveMore brick and mortar on horizon for our area SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLPort Charlotte Town CenterSUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLConstruction is underway at Port Charlotte Marketplace, 19400 Cochran Blvd. The site is located at the old Kmart plaza and will feature stores including HomeGoods and Burlington Coat Factory. THE BOTTOM LINEBig-box retailers like Sears and Macys continue to close across the nation, but not in Charlotte County and North Port. Instead, more chains keep coming. Where do you shop? Online or in store? Stefany Daniel, 25, does the majority of her shopping online, except for jewelry. She comes to the mall to eat. The mall is for older people who like to walk around and shop,Ž she said. North Port resident Dori Shalom, 24, shops the stores when he doesnt want to wait: Instant gratification. Port Charlotte resident Lawrence Johnson, 55, doesnt have access to a computer; for him its important to keep shops open that employ local residents.SUN PHOTOS BY MONICA AMAYA€ SEE MORE RESPONSES ON PAGE 6CHAINS | 6By BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERPredicting the future population is a tall order in Charlotte County, thanks to snowbirds, sunbirds and thousands of undeveloped lots. This is one of many things the countys planning of“ cials learned after working with Western Michigan University on an extensive population study, Community Development Director Claire Jubb told commissioners at their meeting last week. Governments use population predictions to help them decide where to add services such as “ re stations or water and sewer lines, zoning of“ cial Shawn Cullinan said. The county paid $90,000 for the “ rst installment of its annual population studies. Annual updates will be about $10,000. This is a lot less than other counties pay private consulting “ rms, he said. The study revealed one fact that county planners found surprising. The fact is that 80 percent of the population in western Charlotte County is seasonal. That shocked us when we saw those numbers,Ž she said. The planners saw this as good news. Thats an awful lot less people that we have to evacuate in terms of a hurricane or storm surge. Western Michigan also introduced a new term for a typical resident of Charlotte County: A sunbird. A sunbird is someone who lives here full time but leaves for one or more months in the summer. Its like snowbird-light. Sunbirds affect the county differently from snowbirds, 80 percent of west Charlotte County population is seasonal, study saysSEASONAL | 6By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERAfter one of its deadliest years in recent history, the Charlotte Correctional Institution is on track for a decrease in inmate deaths this year. In particular, deaths related to K2, also known as spice or synthetic marijuana, seem to be dropping off. Last year, four inmates died from spice overdoses, outnumbering deaths from natural causes. In 2018, theres been one K2 death so far. Tavaris Bentley, a 28-year-old inmate from Orange County serving a 10-year prison sentence for accessory after the fact of murder, died from a synthetic cannabinoid overdose on Feb. 21. Bentleys autopsy, performed by the Lee County Medical Examiner, reported his cause of death as hypoxicischemic encephalopathy, or brain damage due to lack of oxygen, caused by synthetic cannabinoid 5F-ADB, found in his toxicology report. 5F-ADB, a synthetic cannabinoid, has been identi“ ed in products sold as herbal incense,Ž the autopsy states. These products are sold under a wide variety of names including (but not limited to) K2 and Spice. These products may be used as an alternative to marijuana.Ž The Centers for Disease Control states that synthetic cannabinoids are dangerous because they are sprayed with unknown chemicals, which often affect the brain much more powerfully than marijuana creating unpredictable and, in some cases, life-threatening effects including nausea, anxiety, paranoia, brain swelling, seizures, CCI on track for fewer inmate deaths this yearState implements new contraband detection measures BENTLEYDEATHS | 10

By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERNearly three months have passed since the shooting at the Harbour Heights Civic Association, and still no arrests have been made. Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce Spokesperson Katie Heck Still no arrests in Harbour Heights shootingsaid the agency is working with the State Attorneys Of“ce and awaiting test results for various pieces of evidence sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. It could be six to eight months before the testing is done. Were still waiting on a bunch of things to come back,Ž she said. The identities of the victims have not been released, nor have any suspects, due to the active investigation. The shooting occurred in the early morning hours on June 24 at a private party hosted by Donovan Henry. The event was dubbed on ”iers found on Facebook as Donovan Birthday Gemini Cancer Bash.Ž Around 200 people were estimated to be at the event but many were ”eeing the scene by the time detectives arrived. Two security guards directed law enforcement to the area where the shooting occurred, on the northeast side of the building, near where the vehicles were parked. Two victims were located at a nearby hotel after they called for medical assistance and were later airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital. Two additional victims were driven by friends to local hospitals. All four victims were black men, ranging in age from 25 to 57. All have fully recovered. Based on evidence at the scene, law enforcement believes there were multiple shooters. There have been no other calls to the Civic Associations event center since the shooting, possibly due to a change in the centers hours, which no longer allows events to continue after midnight. The policy went into effect immediately the day after the shooting. Heck said no additional information is yet available, because it is still active, so we dont want to put anything out to affect the investigation.ŽEmail: By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERCharlotte County Animal Control might soon have an online database detailing people in the area with a past history involving animal cruelty. The local department is in the process of proposing an online animal cruelty offender registry, but has experienced unexpected delays, according to Brian Jones, the division manager for Charlotte County Animal Control. It continues to be a work in progress for our department,Ž he said. Similar to a sex offender registry, the database would contain names, residence, photo and other related information of abusers within the county. A registrant will not be legally allowed to own or live in the same home as an animal while on the registry. However, this does not apply to service animals. Unlike violent crimes against people, cases of animal abuse have not always been compiled by state or federal agencies, making it dif“cult to calculate just how common they are,Ž a report in the Florida Bar Journal stated regarding the growing trend of animal abuse registries. Once reviewed by the County Attorneys of“ce, animal shelters, pet sellers and other animal caretakers can better ensure pets are in safe hands. Needless to say, we never want to put our animals in harms way and we try to be very careful about who we adopt our pets out to,Ž said Animal Welfare Leagues executive director, Karen Slomba. An animal abuse registry would be helpful in making sure our adoptable pets never get into the wrong hands.Ž A registry wouldnt just help protect pets, but possibly community members. Cruelty to animals has been recognized as an indicator of a dangerous psychopathy that claims both animal and human victims,Ž according a report published by the Animal Legal & Historical Center. People who abuse one animal typically dont stop there „ they are commonly repeat offenders who pose a threat to all members of a community,Ž said PETA spokesperson So“a Chauvet. An animal-abuser registry would help protect the community from violent criminals such as the Boston Strangler, Jeffrey Dahmer, school shooters, and other notorious killers whose “rst victims were animals,Ž Chauvet said. The registry would keep misdemeanor offenses for three years, felony offenses for “ve years, and 10 years for any subsequent misdemeanor or felony animal cruelty offense, according to the registrys draft. Offenders must register wit hin 10 days of their release or judgement of conviction. Delays have mainly stemmed from time constraints, Jones said. After completing the proposal, animal control will submit it to the Charlotte County Attorneys Of“ce for review. Hillsborough County was the “rst county in Florida to create an animal abuse registry after passing the Animal Abuse Registry Ordinance. Marion County shortly followed, and Charlotte County will be the third if the proposal is approved. Charlotte County Animal Control reported 1,242 cases of neglect and 205 cases of cruelty between 2014 and 2017. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce reported 24 cases of animal cruelty since 2013.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 Learn more facts and about our commitment to clean water at The conversation about water has reached a fevered pitch, and rightfully so. Red tide, blue-green algae, and Lake Okeechobee discharges are all extremely organizations, studies and data say that water quality plays a role in all of them. People may be surprised to hear that we agree. However, these water issues are so important that the discussion and thus, the solutions, must be based on the facts rather than mere claims, hype or emotion. The News Press recently editorialized that several key water projects are years from going online throughout Florida, but they are needed to treat and store water, slow Lake O discharge and redirect harmful water away from the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers.Ž We agree with this as well. Since sugarcane farmers have been blamed for everything from polluting the Everglades, to controlling lake discharges, causing red tide, and even Sahara quite some time. Some articles even claim were impacting Tampa Bay and putting sugar in Lake Okeechobee. Often coverage has been focused on blame, not truth. So in taking a hard look at South Floridas water run-off…well start with ours. Many know that U.S. Sugar is the oldest and largest sugarcane farming company in South Florida; we also grow and process citrus, sweet corn and other winter vegetables. When we are called Big SugarŽ by the media, what people may not know is that we are primarily employee and charity owned. Also, our farms are all in Florida and are located primarily south of Lake Okeechobee. the lake, it must be pumped. By law, the only water allowed to be pumped from cities, not protection for our farms. A small amount of our farm water is mixed Many folks on the Southwest Coast are very concerned that the water in the sugarcane area south of the lake is only one percent. The rest is local run-off from lands along the river. There is a real problem but our water is not the reason. The 2500 employee owners of U.S. Sugar are proud of our farming heritage, our farming communities and our efforts to clean the water leaving our farms. We plan to run a series of ads and social media efforts detailing factual information about our water and our role in water issues. We dont like the lies being told about us, even if they are great for fundraising for anti-farming groups. We sincerely want the problems of red tide and algae to be solved, yet they will only be solved by solutions built on truth. Frankly, these water issues are so serious and complex that unless we start moving the discussion from hype to truth and base solutions on science rather than slogans, these problems will never actually be solved. No one wants these problems solved more than we do. To that end, U.S. Sugar and its people are committed to being open and honest about our water, our farming practices and our heartfelt desire to work with our neighbors to use sound science and factual information to solve all of our shared water issues.Its Time to Take a Hard Look at the Truth about Our Water IssuesSugarcane farms are south of the lake and are only 1 % By Robert H.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018Hollywood is out of touchEditor: If you want to know how far left and out of touch with the American way of life Hollywood has come, you only needed to watch the “rst “ve minutes of the Emmys Monday evening. Co-host Michael Che said his grandmother wont watch the Emmys because no one thanks Jesus for their award. His response was that no one except Republicans and former crackheads thank Jesus, and the audience laughed and applauded. I have also never heard a Hollywood award show winner thank the men and women of the armed services or law enforcement for making it possible for them to even have an award show. I personally thank Jesus for being able to never again watch any future Hollywood award show. If you want to see how mainstream Americans should act, watch the Country Music Awards or NASCAR. They are not afraid to thank God and salute the ”ag.Robert Davis PlacidaStupid, petty stu dividing us allEditor: I am sitting here at my computer and listening to the news. I hear Bill Nelsons advertisement about getting up each morning and just doing what is right and putting politics aside?Ž How many times did he do just that? Vote on the subject, not with what his party wants, too. How about treating Lake OŽ “rst before releasing it into the river? Also where is planet Andrew? I would, for once in my lifetime, like to see a politician advertise and do what he says he or she will once elected. If we all did what is right, this world would be a much better place. Money is the root of all evil. There is no better expression than that. When a ”ag bothers a group of people or a bust of someone or a street name needs to be changed to its original one, well, that is so petty in the grand scheme of things. We are all in this world together and I have realized this stupid and petty stuff that divides us isnt so bad after all. We are all just trying to make our way in the world. I have done a lot of things that I regret. I wish that I had used better judgement or thought how my words hurt someone else. I am making an effort to be a better person. So I will use better judgement before I speak and I will keep my word. Even if I “nd Planet AndrewŽ.Carol M. Leonard Port CharlotteTime to unite on Chinas powerEditor: We have heard much of the Russians and their hacking of U.S. companies and government, but China, too, has been a culprit. The last administration pressed Beijing on its hacking, but in 2015, both the U.S. and China came to an agreement that neither would support digital theft for commercial sabotage and hacking of our military. Was that agreement effective? No! Now the Peoples Liberation Army has consolidated control over its cyber forces and industrial espionage has shifted to more sophisticated hackers in Chinas intelligence agencies. Additionally, two Chinese companies are posed to lead the world in arti“cial intelligence. Not a good sign. Sadly, China seeks and is winning at making the U.N. prioritize the interests of government over technology companies. This obviously is a threat to our economy. This is best perceived as a surrender to the Chinese and Russians on technology. This especially becomes crucial when one considers Chinese steal or deal with its Belt and Road Initiative, which is a massive effort to build infrastructure connection from China to the Indian Ocean, the Persian Gulf and Europe. Though many poor nations are already paying too much for the Chinese infrastructure project of roads, railways, pipelines, ports, mines and even utilities, there is another issue. Chinese companies like Alibaba will get entrance into developing nations and other nations, including Europe. This will build a technological and Digital Silk Road that will help not the Chinese government, but Chinese technology companies. Think about that for one moment. Time to get united on such issues.Bill Weightman North Port Non-citizens should be deportedEditor: An recent article in the newspaper refers to some illegal immigrants as non-criminals.Ž Hello. Wait a minute. Hold on. What? Check the de“nition of illegal. My dictionary de“nes illegal as being against the law.Ž An illegal immigrant is one who has entered the USA illegally, thus has committed a crime and is thus a criminal. The United States of America is full of criminal immigrants, well, almost full. We also have criminals who fail to stop at stop signs and/or ignore posted speed limits. If an action is against any law, it is a criminal action. We should not allow those who have committed a criminal act in crossing our borders to be classed as non-criminals. We should never consider them as citizens either. Citizens of the U.S. are the only people who should be allowed to vote. Non-citizens should be given a free ticket back to their home countries and those countries should be billed for the cost of returning their citizens to their homes.Bill Timm North PortVIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The red tide outbreak that has been plaguing the area for months wasnt caused by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. His administrations policies may have played a role in it, and they appear to have a pretty direct connection to the blue-green algae pouring out of Lake Okeechobee, but there are other “ngerprints on those problems besides Scotts. Thats not our topic today, however. This is about Scotts brief visit to the Venice area last Monday. The governor was scheduled to bring his campaign for the U.S. Senate to Mojos Real Cuban on U.S. 41 at noon. Such whistlestop-styleŽ appearances generally follow a pattern: The candidate arrives late, often entering through a back or side door, mingles for a brief time with supporters and then is whisked away to do it again elsewhere. Thats what Scott did Monday, and it likely was all he was planning to do. But news of his visit had circulated among local Democratic groups and environmental organizations, and their members were waiting with picket signs and megaphones to show Scott their opposition and anger about red tide. When they learned he had entered the restaurant through the back door, some chanted, This is what democracy looks like.Ž Inside the restaurant, Scott was surrounded by supporters. He didnt give a speech or answer questions, opting for small talk and autograph signing before ducking out after a few minutes into a SUV parked at the rear door. Some news outlets reported that he was chased out of the restaurant. That seems like an exaggeration to us. He was probably just trying to stay relatively on schedule. Still, at no point did he engage with his critics, and we think that was a failure of leadership on his part. Scott is precluded by terms limits from running for governor again, but he will be governor until January. And he has been and will continue to be the governor of all Floridians, not just the ones who support him. A few hundred of his constituents had gathered trying to get his attention about a number of matters important to them, but mostly about the devastating impact red tide has had on the area. They didnt think Scott could wave a magic wand and make the problem go away, but they did expect to be heard. They were boisterous, but there was ample security present, if Scott had deigned to talk with them. If the idea of engagement crossed his mind, it was never translated into action. No one enjoys criticism but for many people it comes with the job. Thats certainly the case for politicians, especially the states top elected of“cial. If you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,Ž President Harry S. Truman is credited with saying. The obvious corollary is that if you want to be in the kitchen, you have to be willing to take the heat. Scott not only dodged the heat here, but he also did it in Naples, canceling an event there Tuesday morning and heading to Orlando instead. He was met by protesters there, too. His only response to the protesters was an announcement later in the day that the Department of Environmental Protection would be providing an additional $4 million in grants to communities affected by red tide. The money will do some good and is appreciated. Its just too bad Scott wasnt willing to invest some political capital in a dialogue with his critics. How they treat their opponents says much more about politicians than the way they treat their supporters.Theres no back door to leadership G A R A G E S A L E 1 B L O C K B N 2 1 5 I B R A K E F O R G A R A G E S A L E S GONESHOPPINGI2 SHOPSHOP LOCALLY SAVE GASMY FAVORITE STORELO CAL SHOPSHOMEREST A URANT FOR L UNCHFINE DININGGROCERIES 941-234-3420 General Dentistry Implants € Cosmetic € Nitrous Oxide € Dentures & One Day Repair € Laser Periodontal Therapy 3440 Conway Blvd. #2A (Behind Post Office) € Port Charlotte DR.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 9VIEWPOINT WEEK IN REVIEW The current era of scorched-earth politics began “ve years after there was, according to Christine Blasey Ford, in 1982, an alcohol-soaked party in suburban Washington. There her 15-yearold self was, she says, assaulted by 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, who categorically denies this accusation. On July 1, 1987, just 45 minutes after Ronald Reagan announced his nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, Ted Kennedy said in the Senate that Borks con“rmation would mean that women would be forced into backalley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government.Ž America, according to Kennedy and those who vibrated to his bombast, was living on the lip of a volcano, with no secure civil rights. None that could withstand the ascendancy to the court of a man whose judicial philosophy resembled that of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, the progressives pinup who believed in vast judicial deference to majorities. So, Kennedy was asserting that an American majority was eager to extinguish American liberty. Kennedy spoke just 288 days after he and 97 other senators voted 98-0 to con“rm Antonin Scalia, Borks intellectual soulmate. Obviously the Bork episode was not about jurisprudence. Four years after the Senate rejected Bork, it con“rmed Clarence Thomas, 52-48, after weighing last-minute accusations of past sexual misbehavior „ talk, not touching. The next two justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, were con“rmed with just three and nine opposing votes, respectively. Since then, however, the “ve justices con“rmed (John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch) have had between 22 and 45 votes against them. All were eminently quali“ed, but none were more so than Merrick Garland, the shabby treatment of whom was supposedly justi“ed by a terrible and profoundly anti-constitutional idea that fuels todays con”agration. It is the idea that the selection of justices should be tethered to our never-ending political campaigns, so that the court will re”ect voters shifting constitutional preferences. Hence the con“rmation process has followed the crumbling, descending path the rest of American politics has taken into the depths of cynicism, faux outrage and pandering to the parties hysterical bases. The utter emptiness of everything is an intellectual vacuum into which have ”ooded histrionics. Next week, the Senate committee might try to discover some pertinent things „ when and where the party occurred, whether it was unusual, whether all those present were minors. If the committee cannot make such determinations, assisted by Fords timely testimony, this will be instructive and probably dispositive. Her courage in exposing herself to examination and opprobrium has earned her a respectful hearing. However, her rejection of multiple hearing options and her insistence on prolongations that serve her partys agenda have earned her quizzical scrutiny. This debacle du jour dramatizes how the courts stature is hostage to the degrading con“rmation process, which has become a maelstrom of insincerities. The justices who emerge from it suffer subtractions from the dignity that gives their decisions momentum for respect. For 64 years, the infusion of prestige the court received from its desegregation rulings has been remarkably durable, despite decisions „ e.g., Roe v. Wade and Bush v. Gore „ that were made during, and that intensi“ed, turbulence in public sentiment. But prestige is perishable, and senatorial ludicrousness can infect all who come into contact with it. In recent decades, all civilian institutions important to national governance „ Congress, the presidency, the parties, the bureaucracy, the media „ have, by their ignorance and arrogance, earned the disdain that now engulfs them. Yet although the court regularly renders controversial decisions on matters about which the country is either deeply ambivalent (e.g., samesex marriage) or hotly divided (e.g., abortion), its decisions are usually broadly accepted as ratifying norms that must be, and soon are, accepted. The judiciary is (Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 78) the least dangerousŽ branch because, having no in”uence over either the sword or the purse,Ž it has neither force nor will, but merely judgment.Ž Its judgments, however, can be uniquely powerful because they rely entirely on the moral authority of conscientious reasoning explained in writing. Next week, the committees senators, most of whom are fungible and easily replaceable, should try to minimize the damage their theatrics do to the governments least damaged institution.

In “ scal year 2016-2017, the department recovered 56,549 grams of the drug, compared to just 6,226 grams of marijuana. Last year at Charlotte CI, inmates Cesar Ruano, Antonio Kirkland, Jamie Godsey, and Jeffery Miller all died from the effects of K2. They were the only individuals in the county to die from the drug. Press Secretary Patrick Mander“ eld said the Department of Corrections is using every tool available to prevent contraband from entering the institutionŽ and educating on its dangers. Most recently, a new policy states inmates will be placed in facilities at least one region away from their county of commitment or home location to reduce familiarity with staff and contraband issues.Ž We have numerous documented incidents involving contraband introduction and other crimes that are direct results of inmates association with local citizens, gang members, friends, and in some cases, staff,Ž Mander“ eld said in an email. Many of which they spent their entire lives around in the local community.Ž Mander“ eld stated its rare that an inmate is housed at an institution in the county where they were received, as there is not a proportionate amount of institutions in the counties where the department receives the most newly sentenced inmates. The new policy implements a process to house inmates within 125 miles of their home county based on positive behavior. Additionally, in the last “ scal year, the department added nine new K9 dogs to the contraband interdiction unit, and any staff with a positive K9 hit to their vehicle or person are sent for drug testing, and are unable to report to work, Mander“ eld said. New technology has also been implemented in recent years, including X-ray machines at every visitor and staff entry point, state-of-the-artŽ cell phone detection devices, and a detection system to intercept illegal cell phone traf“ c. The Of“ ce of Intelligence has expanded its efforts to combat organized gang activity and contraband interdiction, according to Mander“ eld, and educational videos for inmates and visitors have been used in attempts to educate on the consequences of contraband. Though it appears the departments actions may be helping at Charlotte CI, other prisons are still reporting high death counts this year. For example, Dade CI already has nine deaths this year, at least one of which is termed an accident,Ž which can be indicative of a drug overdose. Santa Rosa CI has eight deaths, with another three at Santa Rosa Annex; while Columbia CI and Everglades CI both have seven deaths each. Understaffed prisons may also come into play in the pervasiveness of contraband, including spice. While Charlotte CI has just 11 vacancies for correctional of“ cers out of 300 total, not enough to trigger mandatory overtime, other prisons have had to cancel weekend visitations due to understaf“ ng. While Charlotte has just 3.97 percent vacancies, other prisons throughout the state have up to 32.64 percent vacancies. Correctional of“ cers salary starts at $33,500. The inability to properly staff our correctional facilities has a negative impact on all operations,Ž Mander“ eld said. In addition to Bentley, two other inmates died this year at Charlotte CI from natural causes. Damon Snider, 53, and Charles Dorsey, 68, both died after an acute cardiac episode caused by coronary artery disease. Toxicological analyses, including synthetic cannabinoids, were negative for both men.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.comDEATHSFROM PAGE 1 By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT „ After a quiet primary season for the North Port city commission, the candidates will have their chance to be heard.

We do not want to get stuck with two mortgages, so well sell our current home “ rst, and then build our new home. This is a big transition for us. Between selling our current home and building our new home, we may rent a home or possibly travel. Any ideas to make the process as smooth as possible? Answer: My “ rst recommendation is that you talk with your CPA early in the process to minimize any tax rami“ cations. Second, be sure to read the builders contract carefully. Consider paying a real estate attorney to do that. Fortunately, your builder has a good reputation. My third recommendation is that you pay close attention to the timeline required for transferring your Save Our HomesŽ bene“ ts from the home you are selling to the home you are buying (or building). This recommendation applies to any Floridian who is selling a homesteaded home with the intention of homesteading their replacement home. Save Our Homes legislation was enacted to provide property-tax discounts to Floridians whose homes serve as their primary residence. Homeowners who meet these criteria must apply for a homestead.Ž When the homestead goes into effect, these homesteaders are entitled to a reduction on the assessed value of their home. Because ad-valorem property taxes are calculated based on the assessed value of a home, this reduces the property tax. Most typically, this amounts to about a $37,500 reduction in your assessed value. The most valuable bene“ t to being homesteaded is that you are protected from excessive increases in your homes assessed value. This is referred to as the Save Our HomesŽ cap. This cap means that the county property appraiser cannot increase the annual assessed value of a homesteaded home by more than 3 percent, or the consumer price index (CPI), whichever is less. This cap is the bene“ t that can save you a small mint. Non-homesteaded property owners also have protection, but its much weaker. Their assessed value can rise by the actual increase in market value, or 10 percent, whichever is less. From 2011 to 2017, the median sales price of single-family homes in Charlotte county rose from $98,000 to $206,000. That re” ects an increase of 110 percent in market values during that time. But thanks to the 10 percent annual cap, the assessed values of non-homesteaded property owners were capped at about 60 percent during those six years. During this same period the CPI increased a measly 9 percent. We are over simplifying due to space, but in general this means that the assessed value of homesteaded homes during this period rose just 9 percent. That created a huge advalorem property-tax discount for homesteaded property owners. The savings realized from the SOH cap is especially valuable in rapidly rising markets like ours. That causes the difference between the assessed and market values to widen each year, providing bigger and bigger discounts on the property tax. This is known as the Homestead Assessment Difference.Ž Heres the main point of todays column: If you sell your homesteaded home and buy another Florida home, you can portŽ the difference between the assessed and market values from the previous homestead to the new homestead. But heres the catch. You have limited time to apply for a homestead on the new home and portŽ the assessment difference to it. And its tricky. Most websites say you have two years to do this. Thats not true. You have two years from January 1st of the year you sold or abandoned the previous homestead. So, you should consult the property appraisers staff to ensure your plans comply with the timing and other portability rules. Now, back to your question. Because it can take more than a year to complete construction on a new home, you should synchronize the selling of your existing home with the date your new home will be eligible for homesteading. In your speci“ c case, that means protecting your ability to port $131,072 in lowered assessments from the home you are selling to the home you are buying. At a millage rate of 17 mills, that will amount to a savings of $2,228 the “ rst year alone. Brett Slattery is broker/ owner of Brett Slattery Realty LLC in Charlotte County.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSORIn a recent article I cited some of the weaknesses of the 4 percent rule,Ž which says that it is probably safe for a retiree to draw an amount every year equal to 4 percent of the current value of a stock portfolio, rising modestly year by year with in”ation. The principal weakness is that the retiree does not know and cannot easily control the risk that is involved. The major risk is that the rate of return that will be earned on the retirees assets will fall short of the rate that was assumed in calculating how much she could withdraw from the assets each month. An additional risk is that the retiree will live past her expected life span. Either could result in impoverishment at an advanced age. This article proposes a replacement I will tentatively call the Retiree Discretion Rule,Ž or RDR, which is designed to remove the weaknesses of the 4 percent rule. The RDR makes the risks explicit and places them under the retirees control. Viewed as a tool for advisers, RDR provides a framework for a retirement plan that incorporates the unique needs and concerns of each retiree. The RDR calculates the initial monthly draw from the retirees assets, based on the following inputs: € Retirees age € Retirees sex € Value of “nancial assets € Annual in”ation rate desired € Age to which retiree wants monthly draws to last „ lifespan € Rate of return on assets Here is an example. Retiree Smith is a 65-yearold male, has a common stock portfolio valued at $1 million, wants his monthly draws from assets to rise by 2 percent a year, wants those draws to last until he is 90, and assumes his “nancial assets will yield 4 percent over that 25-year period. RDR indicates an initial monthly draw of $4,218. The risk of falling short due to an asset return of less than 4 percent is estimated at 6.4 percent, the risk of living past 90 is 18.6 percent, and the combined risk of a shortfall from either source is 23.8 percent. The risk of a shortfall in the rate of return is based on a database of common stock returns during the period 1926-2012. Over the 745 25-year intervals during that period, the rate of return on common stock was less than 4 percent on 6.4 percent of them. The risk of living past any age is based on the mortality statistics used by the Social Security Administration. If Smith views a risk of impoverishment of 23.8 percent to be excessive, he can reduce the assumed rate of return, extend the draw period or both. With a 3 percent rate of return and draw period of 95, the draw amount falls from $4,218 to $3,211, but the risk of running out of funds falls from 23.8 percent to 9.4 percent. Another way to use the RDR is to generate a table of outputs that cover the different cases from which the retiree is making a selection. A table for Smith would look like the following. Application of Retirement Discretion Rule: initial monthly draw amount and risk that it wont materialize for retiree of 65 with common stock portfolio of $1 million Assumed rate of return „ Target age of monthly draws: 90 „ Target age of monthly draws: 95 „ Target age of monthly draws: 100 3 percent „ $3,764/23.0 percent „ $3,211/9.4 percent „ $2,816/4.1 percent 4 percent „ $4,218/23.8 percent „ $3,674/10.9 percent „ $3,289/5.7 percent 5 percent „ $4,699/25.4 percent „ $4,170/12.0 percent „ $3,800/7.7 percent € Assumes 2 percent annual increase in draw amounts A critical variable that is easy to overlook is the assumed annual increase in the draw amount. The table assumes that it is 2 percent. With a zero increase, the draw amounts in the table would be about 20 percent higher. Most retirees, however, will want the withdrawal amounts to rise over time. The RDR has been implemented as an Excel spreadsheet, which is available at https:// spreadsheets.htm. Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Comments and questions can be left at http://www. the 4 percent rule for retirees By MARK HAMRICKBANKRATE.COMInterest rates are going up. The Federal Reserve in June hiked rates for the second time in 2018. And there could be two more rate hikes before the end of the year, including one at this months Fed meeting. Sure, the increases mean it will cost more to borrow. But youll bene“t from getting better rates on high-yield certi“cates of deposit. Healthier returns on CDs are only one gain from the Feds rate-raising campaign. Heres how you can take advantage of other positive outcomes from Fed rate increases.1. Higher returns for saversIf youre a saver, low interest rates have brought about the “nancial equivalent of a long drought. Any improvement, even modest, is welcome and overdue. Interest rates have been so low for so long that many people have fallen out of the habit of rate shopping,Ž says Robert Frick, corporate economist for Navy Federal Credit Union. But now that rates are rising they should get back into the habit and will be seeing bigger payouts from their accounts, especially certificates of deposit. This is especially important for people on fixed incomes.Ž2. Tamed inflationMost broad-based measures of prices indicate in”ation has continued to remain under control in the U.S. in recent years. The central banks target for in”ation is 2 percent, but in”ation has yet to hit the bulls-eye on a sustained basis, as measured by personal consumption expenditures, or PCE. If the Fed achieves its objectives in steering the economy, in”ation should remain under control. A positive in”ation scenario after a rate increase might include lower prices of imported consumer goods, due to a likely higher exchange value of the dollar if our domestic rate increases are not matched by policy tightening in other major economies,Ž says Daniil Manaenkov, U.S. forecasting specialist at the Research Seminar in Quantitative Economics at the University of Michigan.3. More lendingA credit bubble rightfully received some of the blame for the “nancial crisis in 2007. In the aftermath, lending came to a complete stop. Lending has resumed. Banks may have a greater incentive to loan out reserves at higher interest rates, and the increased ”ow of additional credit would boost economic growth,Ž says Sean Snaith, director of the Institute for Economic Competitiveness at the University of Central Florida.4. More interest income for retireesAs a rate boost brings better returns to savings vehicles, senior citizens should enjoy better paydays by putting their money in CDs and savings accounts. Higher interest rates on CDs and other financial instruments will particularly help older Americans trying to live on their retirement savings,Ž says Lynn Reaser, chief economist at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. As the population ages in coming years, many more Americans will come to appreciate even modest increases in interest income during retirement when they buy certi“cates of deposit.5. Stronger dollar to boost purchasing powerAs the Fed continues to boost rates (and with the outlook for more rate hikes to come), the U.S. dollar gets more support. Ultimately, that means more purchasing power with the greenback compared with other currencies. Predicting moves in the foreign exchange market is dif“cult, but Snaith and other economists say the dollar could strengthen further as the Fed boosts rates. Fed tightening is likely to mean a somewhat higher dollar, so people traveling to Europe will do well,Ž says Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington.7 benefits of a Federal Reserve interest rate hikeRATE | 4 € Diabetic Care € Foot Pain € Foot Surgery € Heel Pain Same Day Appointments 941-613-1919 3191 Harbor Blvd. Unit D Port Charlotte, FL 33952 adno=3608095-1 COMPLETE FOOT CARE Dr. Michael Metyk Podiatric Surgery Ricardo Gauthier, Au.D Doctor of Audiology 941.505.0400 The Best of Charlotte for the Past 10 Years!We offer a complete range of audiology services for our clients including the following: We participate in most insurance programs adno=3608069-1100 Madrid Blvd Suite 214 Punta Gorda, FL 33950www.harboraudiology.netRicardo Gauthier, Au.D Doctor of Audiology We participate in most insurance programs adno=3612013-1 24 HOUR WATER REMOVAL€ Steam Cleaning € Rotary Scrub € Dry Cleaning€ Tile & Grout Cleaning € Carpet Repair & Stretching € Oriental & Wool Rug Cleaning Specialist10% OFFCARPET, UPHOLSTERY & TILE CLEANINGPresent this ad at time of service for discount. *10% Discount does not apply to minimum.Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte 941.766.0115WWW.HAPPYHOMESERVICES.NET adno=3610358-1 LAWN REPLACEMENT CALL MALONEY'S SOD No job too big or too small!www.maloneysod.comServing Charlotte County for 40 years941-637-1333adno=3611927-1 Where Shopping Makes Cents Insured by NCUA.*Annual Percentage Yield.

Stocks will trade on fundamentalsAs the Federal Reserve embarks on what of“cials have called normalizationŽ (that is, a backing away from record-low rates), stock prices may start to make more sense and not re”ect the central banks easy monetary policy quite so much. A normalization of rates would return the focus to market fundamentals and off of focusing on the nuances of each Fed statement,Ž says David Nice, former senior economist at DS Economics in Chicago.7. Would-be homebuyers may get off the fenceAs the Fed continues to raise rates, higher mortgage rates likely will follow. If the prospect of higher mortgage rates compels you to a home sooner than later, you wont be alone. Higher mortgage rates could push buyers off the fence „ increasing demand, increasing prices and increasing home equity so that more people can sell their homes,Ž says Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania.RATEFROM PAGE 2 By GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: I live in a gated community with zero lot lines between houses. About 12 years ago, I asked my neighbor if he would be interested in putting a gravel path from the front to the back between our properties, as it is impossible to grow grass in this shaded area and it got muddy. His response was: Do whatever you want. I never go on that side of the house.Ž Now he decided to send a certi“ed letter telling me that part of the path is on his property, and he wants it removed, or he will consult an attorney. Do I have to remove it? „ Barry A: You have two issues at play here. The “rst is whether you need to remove the path from his property, and the second is where his property line is. We will address the second issue “rst. The legal concept of adverse possessionŽ states that if someone uses someone elses property under certain conditions, he or she becomes owner of the property. The reasoning behind this is that all property is supposed to be productive, and if someone takes over and works abandoned property he or she will eventually own it. To become owner of the path, your use of it would need to ful“ll “ve conditions. Possession must be hostile, actual, exclusive, open/ notorious and continuous. In non-lawyer talk, this means use of the property would need to be without his permission, actually used only by you and in no way hidden for a speci“c period, usually between seven and 10 years. It is important to note that you can become owner of someone elses property only if all of the conditions are met. In your case, since he permitted you to put in the path, your neighbor will not lose his ownership of his part to you, even though you met the other conditions. Now, we will have to determine whether you need to remove the path. The short answer is no, you do not need to, but he can if he wants to. In a nutshell, your neighbor gave you a licenseŽ or permission to put the path over a portion of his property and made no requirement that you remove the gravel if he changed his mind. Since it appears he has now changed his mind, something he has the right to do, he can remove the path to his property line, plant a tree over it, or do whatever he wants with it, as long as it is within community rules. This issue is not that much different from your right to carefully prune back your neighbors tree limbs if they cross onto your property. Gary M.

By JOSH BOAKAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. sales of existing homes were unchanged in August, as a shortage of houses priced at less than $250,000 „ a level considered to be affordable for the middle class „ has become a drag on the real estate market. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that homes sold last month at a seasonally adjusted annual pace of 5.34 million. Existing home sales have fallen 1.5 percent during the past 12 months. Price gains are moderating, and the total number of sales listings is increasing, a marked change from roughly three years worth of annual declines in inventory. But the sales momentum is increasingly concentrated on homes worth more than $500,000, while sales of homes worth less than $250,000 have tumbled over the past year. Still viewed as a foundation for the U.S. middle class, home ownership has become a challenge for many Americans as prices have been rising at a faster pace than incomes for roughly the past “ve years. The relative robust job market has boosted demand over the past year, yet borrowing costs have shot up and created affordability pressures that are relegating many would-be buyers to the sidelines. A strong economy is no longer enough to prop up home buying demand,Ž said Cheryl Young, a senior economist at the real estate company Trulia. Home buyers are sensing that the market is near or at an apex and many are pulling back to see when prices may “nally begin to tip in their favor.Ž There were 1.92 million existing homes for sale at the end of August, up from 1.87 million a year ago. The median sales price in July increased 4.6 percent from a year ago to $264,800. Home prices are no longer climbing as quickly as they did in 2017 and 2016, although the gains are still greater than average wage growth. Sales rose last month in the Northeast and Midwest, but they fell in the South and West. Nationally, there has been a 1.7 percent decline in the sale of homes priced between $100,000 and $250,000 in the past year. But the sale of homes worth more than $1 million has jumped by 11.8 percent, a sign that the greater concentration of wealth among the top sliver of households is reshaping how the U.S. housing market operates. Higher mortgage rates also appear to be a drag on sales. This week, the average 30-year “xed-rate mortgage charged an interest rate of 4.65 percent, according to mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. The average has jumped from 3.83 percent a year ago because of the solid economic growth, rising government debt and intensifying showdown between China and the United States on trade, said Sam Khater, Freddie Macs chief economist.US home sales were flat in August adno=3613956-1adno=3613919-1 Single Visit Crowns… Using the Latest in 3D CAD-CAMDr. Farag has brought state of the art Dentistry to Port Charlotte at an a ordable price.Joseph H.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 5OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERNow that the legal dispute over the sale of Fishermens Village is resolved, city of“cials “nally get to decide what to do with the money. Punta Gorda gained $3.5 million from the 2015 sale of the property to ATA Fishville. (I would) suggest that we not be in a huge hurry to spend all this money,Ž said Council Member Lynne Matthews at a recent council meeting. As part of the settlement with the descendants of the citys founder, Col. Isaac H. Trabue, $700,000 of the proceeds had to be set aside for construction at Ponce de Leon Park, a project that has long been in the works. The descendants, led by Robert Berry Trabue, the colonels great-grandnephew and main petitioner, sued the city in 2017 for rightful ownership of 20 plats of land, including Fishermens Village. I think the only thing that I would be willing to say we are obligated to spend money on is Ponce (Park) because we are legally obligated,Ž said Council Member Nancy Prafke. Given our “nancial situation, I think that we need to not be so quick to spend the money.Ž With the Ponce Park money set aside, $2.8 million would remain for use by a city with many projects ahead of them. Despite the weight of those projects hanging over the citys head, council members agreed that they should be cautious on how they spend the money and how quickly they do so. From what I see coming out of this special fund,Ž said Matthews, right now, the only things that should come out of the special fund ... are the Ponce Park construction and the (Citizens) Master Plan.Ž The original Citizens Master Plan was designed in 2005 based on community goals and principles, often referred to as smart growth. Smart growth is a theory in urban planning and transportation focused on growth in compact, walkable, urban centers to avoid sprawl. The City Council has scheduled a special meeting for Wednesday at 1 p.m. where council members will serve as the evaluation and selection committee for the the solicitation of consulting “rms to assist in the design for the master plan. Five “rms have submitted packages for the project. Those “rms include: Canin Associates, DPA Partners, Dover, Kohl Partners, and Sweet Sparkman Architects. Beyond that,Ž said Matthews, I think we should hold off and keep that money set aside ... just in case. This whole FEMA thing hanging over our heads has me very concerned.Ž Punta Gorda still has yet to receive any reimbursement for the Hurricane Irma seawall repairs. The status is still Pending CRC Project Development,Ž according to Melissa Reichert, the citys communications manager. Staff is still optimistic that FEMA will complete the seawall project review in the time-frame we anticipated, but we now know that the state review can be time consuming,Ž said Reichert. FEMA staff on the seawall project are reaching out to the state of Florida to see if they will work concurrently with FEMA in the damage review process. If that occurs,Ž said Reichert, we may still meet our timeline of beginning draws from FEMA funding in January, 2019. If it is delayed, the citys line of credit allows for a ”exible and lengthier loan schedule.Ž The seawall project estimate remains at $29.8 million. City staff anticipate 75 percent reimbursement from FEMA, and 12.5 percent from the state of Florida. The City Council approved that the special fund be used for a to be determinedŽ amount involving the Citizens Master Plan. They also approved the use of funds for the Ponce Park construction. As an internal loan, the city will use $453,000 for the land purchase of Bird Cut property in Punta Gorda Isles to build the 1,446-foot-long, 60-footwide channel, connecting the PGI canal system to Alligator Creek and leading to Charlotte Harbor. The land-purchase for Buckleys Pass,Ž said City Manager Howard Kunik, its just a loan to be paid back by (property) assessment proceeds.Ž The City Council chose to leave the rest of the funds in escrow for the time being. Some of the other projects suggested by city staff included city hall security enhancements, a boost to the citys general fund reserves and the Boca Grande drainage project.

WEEKLY As people get older, they often stop noticing things around their home. Dust gathers in corners or on shelves and cabinets where televisions or knickknacks may be placed. Dust can even settle on plant leaves, despite meticulous watering done for the plant. At the same time, wallto-wall carpeting installed many years ago may have become stained and dirty from spills or pets, or show obvious signs of wear. Its easy to get accustomed to the signs of interior neglect, and to no longer seeŽ it. These things may have become the norm for the homes of older adults. Why not make your home look younger? A good spruce-up will also make you feel younger! If you live on Social Security, you may have to save an amount each month to pay for a home rejuvenation. Dont borrow money for your homes improvement. Saving up may take a lot longer, but it means that you wont go into debt, that you cant afford to pay. If you live in a rented apartment and plan to stay there for many years, ask the landlord to assist with some, or all of the expenses. Explain that this will be an investment in the property. The “rst priority to consider is your homes walls. Are they dull and dingy? Has the paint faded over the years? Search for a local painter or a painting company online, using the keywords best painter in (type the name of your city).Ž Dont choose the one at the top of the search engine page; call at least three painters and have each give you an estimate of costs. When you “nd a painter you like, tell him or her that you want them to do the job, but you must start saving up each month to pay for it. Once the walls are painted and refreshed, its time (because you dont want the painting to be done over new carpet) to start looking for good carpeting. Again, get several estimates. Dont buy the cheapest stuff, it will probably stain easily and it may show signs of wear faster than more expensive carpet. Some big-box chain stores offer customers a dealŽ of free installation. Ignore it, it will end up not being a deal at all. These companies dont use their own contractors, they hand the job over to third-party subcontractors. These subcontractors can charge extra for such things as removal of old carpet and padding, hauling the old carpet and padding away, the moving of furniture, and so on. The store takes its cut of the free installation, which is labeled basic installation. Anything above basic, costs extra. The carpet contractor doesnt make its pro“t from the store, but from the extra charges that can be tacked on to your bill. Despite the fact that you may have been misled into thinking your previous payment of the so-called “nal bill paid for everything, that is usually not the case. You may end up being charged hundreds of dollars more. Go to several carpet stores. Ask if the stores price for installation includes all charges, like installation and hauling away the old carpet and padding. Finally, save up and pay for a cleaning service that will dust everything and neaten your home. The cost is de“nitely worth the money. Getting these three things done, will make your residence look younger and more pleasing.How to spruce up your homeBy DEBBIE CARLSONCHICAGO TRIBUNEDoes your bathroom need a pick-meup? Whether you want to build a spalike experience with a complete remodel or just want to make quick changes in an afternoon, new products and technology make it easy. The 2017 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study said the average spend on a major master bathroom remodel exceeding 100 feet was $21,000, while smaller bathrooms averaged $12,500. Whether or not you have that kind of scratch to throw around, here are “ve ways to refresh your bathroom, from low-cost to luxe. 1. Swap out “xtures. On the super frugal side, replace vanity hardware, light “xtures or install new towel bars and/or toilet paper holder, said Sarah Barnard, principal of Sarah Barnard Design, a Santa Monica, CA -based interior designer. Add plants like orchids or ferns if you have a window. Simple touches can draw attention away from ugly spots. 2. Showerheads. With as little as $100, upgrade to a better showerhead, said Lynn Schrage, marketing manager of the Kohler store in Chicago. Even renters can install a better showerhead and replace it when they move. 3. Medicine cabinet. Have wiggle room in your budget? Lighted mirrored medicine cabinets can improve a bathroom and save space, Schrage said. Many lighted medicine cabinets can use existing electrical supplies too. Kohlers Verdera medicine cabinets and Wade Logan both have LED lighting that mimic natural daylight. 4. Bathing area. Updating the bathing/showering space can spruce up the bathroom without making the rest of the room feel tired, Schrage said. Tom Graham, president of Revive Designer Bathrooms in Lincolnwood, said if youre not gutting the space, just replacing the shower door can make a big impact. Todays doors have more glass and less hardware for a clean look, he said, and many have water repellents added to the glass to eliminate the need to squeegee after the shower, such as the Aqua Swing from DreamLine. 5. Toilet. Graham said he gets a lot of requests for comfort heightŽ commodes, which are closer to chair height, about 2 to 4 inches higher than the standard toilet. Sleeker looks like having the water tank built into the wall, and the seat mounted to the wall are popular, he said. The wall-mounted toilets can be placed at any height, and allow for easier cleaning of the ”oor underneath, he said. Graham, Schrage and Barnard all said that theres more interest in bidet seats, combining the toilet with seats that have warming functions and sprays. Bidet seats can be added just by swapping out old toilet seats without changing the existing toilets. Several brands are available, with prices starting around $250.Easy ways to update your bathroom on any budget


When Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan brought their spectacular athleticism and skills to the big screen in the 1970s and 1980s, they sparked intense interest in Chinese martial arts. For those lacking the core athleticism, health and “tness demanded by martial arts such as Kung Fu, Tai Chi is a slower, gentler alternative ranking “rst among martial arts. Tai Chi, which translates to supreme ultimate “st,Ž is at its core a martial art, although that characterization disguises its depth and bene“ts to practitioners. Tai Chi is the mother of all martial arts. Many people practice it for the physical bene“ts,Ž said Sharon Fultz, who has taught Tai Chi for over 20 years. You can do Tai Chi for the martial arts aspect and gain the health bene“ts, or you can do it for the health purposes and pick up the martial arts aspect.Ž Learn more about both by taking Fultzs ongoing class, Maximum Bene“ts-Low Impact,Ž at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211 in Punta Gorda. Sessions are held noon to 1 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday. Tai Chi is suitable for everyone, young and old alike, who is interested in improving their health and “tness while stimulating their mental focus, memory, concentration and understanding while minimizing negative physical impacts,Ž Fultz said. She began practicing martial arts when she enrolled her son in Tai Kwon Do and wound up signing up herself. It looked like fun,Ž she said. I wasnt comfortable with the combat aspects of Tai Kwon Do. So, I started Tai Chi in 1995 and quickly felt like I was home. I immediately had a comfort level in Tai Chi and started teaching in 1997.Ž An aerobic exercise, Tai Chi improves wellness, cardiovascular “tness, muscle strength, coordination, ”exibility and balance. Because it is low impact „ one foot is always on the ground „ its easy on the joints, bones and connective tissues. A weight-bearing exercise, its helpful in preventing and treating osteoporosis, or low bone mass, as well as structural deterioration of bone tissue. It also eases the pain and stiffness experienced by arthritis sufferers. The improved balance experienced among Tai Chi practitioners is especially important for seniors. Annually, 25 percent of people 65 and older fall, with 20 percent of those falls causing a serious injury such as broken bones or head injuries. Three million older Americans are treated for fall injuries in emergency departments annually, with 800,000 hospitalized „ 300,000 of them for hip fractures. Tai Chi improves leg strength and balance to help in preventing falls, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. There is also evidence Tai Chi can enhance the immune system, improve sleep quality, lower blood pressure, reduce joint pain, alleviate the symptoms of congestive heart failure and improve well-being, according to the Mayo Clinic. In class, Fultz uses a Stepwise Progressive Teaching MethodŽ in which she demonstrates, students follow her, then they all do it together, she said. Over the last 10 years, Tai Chi has evolved to make it more user friendly. In this class, well only be learning six postures instead of the traditional 22,Ž Fultz said. Reducing the number of postures allows participants to focus on performing the postures correctly, internalize them and focus on their breathing, which is what makes Tai Chi meditation in motion.Ž For more information or to register for Maximum Bene“tsLow Impact,Ž call 941-505-0130. Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD „ A new foundation is under construction for Englewoods historic Green Street Church. Englewoods Leo P”iger Construction, which is overseeing the church project for the Lemon Bay Historical Society, started laying the concrete block Friday for the churchs new foundation at the historic Lemon Bay Cemetery on South Indiana Avenue (State Road 776). The church was moved in the early morning hours Sept. 11, from West Green Street to the cemetery. In a week or two, P”iger Construction is expected to reset the steeple atop the church, Historical Society members said. However, they dont know when they will receive a certi“cate of occupancy and reopen the church for weddings, memorials, meetings and other community events. We dont know what (Sarasota County) will require for the C.O.,Ž board member Esther Horton said. The 90-year-old Green Street Church was Englewoods “rst house of worship. For decades, it sat on property the Historical Society leased from the Crosspoint Church of the Nazarene on West Green Street. The Historical Society bought property at the cemetery so the church can have a forever home.Ž The nonpro“t Historical Society has been fundraising and able to set aside $170,000 „ including grants from the Englewood Community Redevelopment Agency, Sarasota County Alliance for Historical Preservation and William G. and Marie Selby Foundation. The Historical Society members continue with their fundraising efforts and worry they could end up carrying some debt.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 9 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy KAYLA GLEASONSTAFF WRITERTiaras, glittering gowns and even the occasional glass slipper and magic wand ”ooded the halls of Mid County Regional Library on Saturday. As part of their ongoing Random FandomŽ program, the library hosted a Disney-themed tea party “t for princesses and princes of all ages. So far, our Pokemon event had been the most popular, so we wanted to learn from that and make the themes accessible to all ages,Ž said Librarian Supervisor Erin Creighton. These events really help bring people into the library and show them what else we can do here. I just “nished signing up six new people for library cards.Ž Over 150 mini Cinderellas, Snow Whites and Rapunzels came out with their families, “lling the event room to capacity and spilling out into the surrounding halls. Weve started moving some of our craft tables out there because we cant “t everyone in here at once,Ž Creighton said. Throughout the afternoon, guests got to create their own crowns, eat as many doughnuts as their hearts desired and take sel“es with classic fairy tale props in front of a castle background. To help develop a love of reading, the organizers also pulled out stacks and stacks of fairy tales and Disney books for families to check out and enjoy together. Ashley Guerzo, the library technician behind the tea party, was dressed up in her own sparkly princess costume and was elated by the days success. I love Disney and I wanted to share that with the kids. I see them all the time in their little dresses and they have nowhere to go,Ž she said. Not all parents can afford to give them huge themed birthdays and stuff, so I wanted to throw a big party for all their dreams to come true.Ž All of the food and fun was donated by local businesses and individuals. Abbys Donut Nook, just across the street from the library, provided 150 doughnuts „ many appropriately themed with bright pink frosting and rainbow sprinkles. We had no idea how popular it would be when we planned it. It was shared a lot on Facebook but we didnt know all those people would actually end up coming,Ž Creighton said. Its so popular, were probably going to do it annually.Ž In October, the library will be holding a much-anticipated Halloween Costume Swap. Families can drop off their gently used costumes between Oct. 1-17 and receive a ticket to return Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon, and pick out a new to youŽ costume.

Page 10 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESIts estimated that 88 million cats share our homes „ or allow us to share theirs „ as opposed to 74 million dogs. Even though more households own dogs, many people have more than one cat, pushing their numbers up over dogs. Sadly, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, APPMA, far fewer cat owners take their cat to a veterinarian than dog owners. People spend less money on cat toys, food and grooming. Part of the problem may be what some consider the “nancial worth of the two species. According to the APPMA, people pay an average of $331 to purchase a dog, while only about one-tenth of that is spent on buying a cat. This may be better understood by the fact that 75 percent of the cat owners pay nothing, and one-third of owned cats are taken in as strays. Adoption fees at Suncoast Humane Society are equal at $85, with even lower fees for senior adopters and long-term residents, both canine and feline. Studies have shown that cats suffer from a public relations problem in many of Americas animal care and control facilities. If this is true, the very essence of the cat may be a contributing factor. Dogs, with their wagging tails, soulful eyes, and eager-to-please demeanor, endear themselves to us and give them the distinction of mans best friend.Ž Many cats, however, are much more independent by nature and often have trouble sellingŽ themselves to potential adopters. On top of that, many animal adoption facilities seem to feature or promoteŽ the dogs more than the cats in adoption advertising such as Pet of the Day, Week, or Month. Again, not the case with Suncoast Humane Society, which strives to advertise and marketŽ dogs and cats equally. Even lost or straying cats get less attention than dogs. Some people do not search for their lost cats, especially cats kept out of doors, as quickly as they do for dogs. Sometimes they dont even miss them for days or weeks. When someone sees a loose dog, they immediately become concerned and try to catch it or call an animal control agency to report the incident. If they see a loose cat, they are much more accepting to the theory that kitty is out for a stroll or a hunt and will go back when she/he is ready.Ž Suncoast Humane Society strives to overcome this secondclass pet theory that has been created. Cats and kittens recommended for adoption are presented in a spacious, homey, open-air environment at our animal care center. Many are free roamingŽ in the adoption cattery enjoying the many toys provided for them, or simply lounging on the kitty condos, countertops, and pet shelves. All of this says, Please take me home!Ž and What you see is what you will get when I become a member of your family.Ž Volunteer cat cuddlersŽ receive special training in socializing cats that need special attention, while also working to maintain gentle dispositions of longer-term feline residents. More cats than dogs are featured at the satellite adoption centers, at PetCos and Pet Supermarkets in Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte and Venice. It is safe to say that with all the focus on our feline friends, cats will never be secondclass citizens during their stay at Suncoast Humane Society. The goal is, however, for them to become a “rstclass citizen in a newly adopted home. Are you ready? Phil Snyder is executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society.

Feeling FitPort Charlotte € Punta Gorda € North Port € Englewood € ArcadiaSunday, September 23,There are only four kinds of people in the world,Ž former First Lady Rosalynn Carter famously said. Those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.Ž A caregiver can be many things: Accountant, companion, housekeeper, nurse, personal assistant, orderly, chauffeur, cook, and more. They may be partners, family members, friends or professionals. Caregiving is rewarding, but can also be stressful … physically, emotionally, and financially,Ž said Sherry Young, Health and Wellness Coordinator with the Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida. The Area Agency on Aging is one of two local concerns launching caregiver support and educational courses this week. The agencys Powerful Tools for CaregiversŽ series is being held in six weekly sessions starting Tuesday (Sept. 25), while the United Way of Charlotte County Senior Nutrition and Care (SNAC) program is presenting the Food for Thought Caregiver SeriesŽ over seven monthly workshops beginning Friday (Sept. 28). The Powerful Tools for CaregiversŽ classes are designed to provide caregivers skills and tools enabling them to take care of themselves while caring for someone else. Classes will teach you how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, Health & Hope DanMEARNSC PROVIDED BY MCCYoga continues to grow in popularity. In a questionnaire administered every “ve years as part of the National Health Interview Survey, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the National Center of Health Statistics found that the number of people practicing yoga increased dramatically between 2002 and 2012, when approximately 21 million adults acknowledged practicing yoga. That “gure equated to nearly double the number of people who practiced yoga just 10 years earlier. The almost meteoric rise in popularity of yoga can likely be traced to many factors, including a growing awareness among the general public regarding the impact a healthy lifestyle can have on both shortand long-term health. An essential component of a healthy lifestyle involves taking steps to protect our bodies, and that can include making an effort to reduce the aches and pains that are often associated with aging. The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome,Ž explained Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certi“ed osteopathic family physician and certi“ed Kundalini Yoga instructor. The American Osteopathic Association notes the bene“ts of yoga extend even further than relieving chronic pain. According to the AOA, yoga can help men, women and even children increase their ”exibility as well as help them build stronger, more toned muscles. Additional bene“ts of yoga include weight reduction, improved cardiovascular and circulatory health and improved energy and vitality. But the bene“ts of yoga extend beyond the physical to the mental. The American Psychological Association notes that several studies have shown that yoga can help strengthen social attachments, reduce stress and relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia. For example, a 2012 study from researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that a particular type of yoga that included brief, daily meditation reduced the The benefits of including yoga in your exercise routine PHOTO PROVIDED The American Psychological Association notes that several studies have shown that yoga can help strengthen social attachments, reduce stress and relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia.

But soon names slipped his mind, too, and then he failed to recognize people. Then he lost his ability to talk and to walk, and then he died, bedridden. I saw my father die of Alzheimers,Ž said Parkerson, 85. Ive experienced a lot of what its like „ its terribly sad „ and I would be very happy to help people not go through that.Ž Thats why she decided to enroll in a “veyear-long Alzheimers research study about four years ago. On Monday, she eagerly sat in the auditorium of East Ridge at Cutler Bay, her Pine Crest senior living community, alongside about 50 other fellow residents, some of whom also volunteered for the studies. They were all there to hear from the man who recruited them for the study, David Loewenstein, a University of Miami expert in neuropsychology who has been studying Alzheimers for 32 years. Loewenstein spoke about one of his teams most recent “ndings: For the “rst time, they successfully used a behavioral test to identify which patients with cognitive impairment are most likely to develop Alzheimers. Loewenstein and his colleagues found patients with mild cognitive impairment, then divided them into three groups. The “rst was patients with underlying Alzheimers, as proved by their high levels of amyloid, an aggregation of a protein in the brain of Alzheimers patients. The second was patients who had the symptoms of Alzheimers, but didnt have the high levels of amyloid, which meant they probably had another disease.

A Centers for Disease Control doctor cautioned that the last ”u season proved to be one of the deadliest. Thats why the CDC is urging people to act now, just before the October start of the 2018-19 ”u season and get vaccinated. That advice comes even if you delayed a few months into the previous ”u season and got vaccinated earlier this year. Some of the age ranges for certain vaccines have been lowered and some vaccines were reformulated to better prevent currently circulating viruses. Among the bene“ts of getting vaccinated for the ”u: Getting a vaccine doesnt mean you wont get the ”u, but if you do get sick it could be less severe, experts say. In addition, a 2007 CDC study found that the ”u vaccination signi“cantly reduced a childs risk of dying from in”uenza. The study analyzed data from four ”u seasons between 2010 and 2014 and found that ”u vaccination reduced the risk of ”u-associated death by half, or 51 percent, among children with underlying high-risk medical conditions and by nearly twothirds, 65 percent, among healthy children.Ž Vaccines to “ght the ”u can also protect women during and after pregnancy and protect a baby after delivery, the CDC said. The push to take the ”u seriously is especially relevant given the severity of the recent season. Vaccines are available at pharmacies, including those at Publix, Walgreens, CVS and most doctors of“ces. The 2017-18 season was the “rst season to be classi“ed as a high severity across all age groups,Ž the CDC reported. The in”uenza-like-illness activity ramped up in November, reached an extended period of high activity during January and February nationally, and remained elevated through the end of March,Ž the CDC reported. Adult deaths from the ”u are not nationally noti“able, the CDC said, but childrens cases are tabulated. The number of pediatric deaths attributed to the ”u, as of Aug. 25, numbered 180 „ the worst since 171 died during the particularly severe 2012-13 ”u season. Of the 180 children who died in the last year, 80 percent, or 144 of them, did not receive the vaccine during the season, the CDC said. At least “ve children died from ”u-related illnesses during the 2017-18 season in Florida, including West Palm Beach seventh-grader Dylan Winnik, 12, who died on Jan. 23. His mother had initially thought he had a cold. In addition, the duration of cases at or above the national baseline was 19 weeks, making the 20172018 season one of the longest in recent years,Ž the CDC said. According to the CDC, ”u viruses are most common during the fall and winter months. In”uenza activity starts to pick up the pace in October and November. The peak of ”u activity happens sometime between De cember and February, but it can last as late as May. So what will this ”u season be like into 2019? The short answer, according to the CDC: It is not possible to predict what this ”u season will be like. While ”u spreads every year, the timing, severity, and length of the season varies from one season to another.Ž But the CDC reports that there are several new things this season. Among them: € Flu vaccines have been updated to better match currently circulating viruses. The B/ Victoria component was changed and the in”uenza A(H3N2) component was updated. € For the 2018-2019 season, the nasal spray ”u vaccine „ or live attenuated in”uenza vaccine or LAIV, often a go-to option for young children who hate shots „ starting at 2 years of age, is recommended. The vaccine is also approved for use in non-pregnant women up to age 49, unless your doctor warns against its use depending on your medical history. € All LAIV vaccines will be quadrivalent, designed to protect against four different ”u viruses: two in”uenza A viruses and two in”uenza B viruses. Most regular-dose eggbased ”u shots will be quadrivalent. All recombinant vaccine will be quadrivalent. No trivalent recombinant vaccine will be available this season,Ž the CDC said. € Cell-grown ”u vaccine will be quadrivalent. For this vaccine, the in”uenza A(H3N2) and both in”uenza B reference viruses will be cell-derived, and the in”uenza A(H1N1) will be egg-derived. € The intradermal ”u vaccine, a shot injected into the skin instead of the muscle using a smaller needle than the regular ”u shot and requiring less antigen to be as effective as the regular ”u shot, will not be available this season. € The age recommendation for Fluarix Equivalent, which uses mammalian culture rather than chicken embryos, was changed from 3 years old and older to 6 months and older. € The age recommendation for A”uria Quadrivalent, an inactivated in”uenza vaccicine, was changed from 18 years and older to 5 years and older. According to the CDC, ”u vaccines protect against the three or four viruses that research suggests will be most common.Ž This season healthcare providers will provide vaccines in various ways, such as standard dose ”u shots given into the muscle via needle or, for some individuals ages 18-64, two varieties, A”uria and A”uria Quadrivalent, can be delivered via jet injector, a medical device that uses a high-pressure, narrow stream of ”uid to penetrate the skin instead of a hypodermic needle. Also, shots made using a vaccine production technology that does not require the use of ”u virus. The CDC recommends that you get your vaccination now, on the eve of the 2018-19 ”u season, before it picks up steam in October. Some school districts, such as in Palm Beach County, have already started social media campaigns to spread awareness of the coming ”u season and have begun programs to offer shots for children. You should get a ”u vaccine before ”u begins spreading in your community,Ž the CDC suggests. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against ”u to develop in the body, so make plans to get vaccinated early in the fall, before ”u season begins.Ž In other words, no later than the end of October. But if youre a procrastinator, you are still advised to get the vaccine even if its January or later. But the CDC counsels that children are a special concern. Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner, because the two doses must be given at least four weeks apart.Ž For the most current in”uenza surveillance information, the CDC regularly updates its FluView Weekly U.S. In”uenza Surveillance Report.Last year the flu was deadly; Heres how you can fight it now PHOTO PROVIDEDThe CDC is urging people to act now, just before the October start of the 2018-19 u season, and get vaccinated.

Too much stress can affect your mood, making you anxious or restless. It can lead to negative behaviors, such as overeating or eating poorly. And it can attack your body, causing headaches, fatigue and other health problems. Some stress is unavoidable, but you can learn to cope with it so stress doesnt control you. Consider the four As of stress relief: Avoid, Alter, Accept, Adapt. € Avoid situations you know to trigger your stress. € Alter your perception to make the situation better. € Accept the things you cant change. € Adapt your standards and expectations to create less stressful situations. Here are some ways to manage stress you cant avoid:GET ACTIVEWatching television, sur“ng the internet or playing video games might seem relaxing, but they are passive activities that can actually increase stress in the long run. To de-stress, try getting active instead. Get up, go for a walk, wash the car, do a little gardening „ anything that gets you moving can help. Getting physical activity every day can help relieve stress.CHANGE YOUR MINDSETHere are some ways to clear your head when life begins to overwhelm you: € Practice relaxation and positive thinking. This can alter your perception and calm you. € Practice gratitude. By focusing on the good, rather than the stress, you can see things more positively and change your perception. € Participate in activities that you enjoy. € Learn how your body reacts to stress and teach yourself to take deep breaths, slow your heart rate and remain positive. € Spend time with supportive people. Talk to those you trust about things that bother you. € Write in a journal if you need a more private outlet than con“ding in someone else. € Understand your emotions. Are you really stressed, or just upset about something? Identifying the issue is the “rst step in “xing a problem.MANAGE YOUR TIME, MAINTAIN PERSPECTIVEIf work is causing you stress, sharpen your time-management skills and maintain perspective: € Set realistic goals, expectations and deadlines. € Make a priority list. Prepare a list of tasks to complete, and rank them. € Protect your time. Block time on your calendar to work without interruptions. € Get other points of view. Talk to trusted colleagues about your situation and listen to them. € Take a break. A few minutes of personal time can be refreshing. € Have an outlet. Set aside time for an activity that you enjoy. € Take care of yourself.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018By GREGORY WHYTETHE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYS FITNESS CENTERTo many, Fusion One is a safe, simple and effective holistic and natural health program. It is a system of therapeutic exercises that are akin to those of yoga, tai chi, chi kung and a number of other disciplines. Although it is used by people of all ages and walks of life, Fusion Ones very nature makes it ideal for the elderly, the functionally challenged,Ž persons managing or recovering from certain illnesses and those attempting to get in shape. Unlike similar programs, Fusion One was created to address many of todays illnesses and health conditions. Its exercises constitute three distinct forms: a lying form, a seated form and a standing form. It is through the use of these forms that the system is able to „ safely and effectively „ address the “tness and health needs of people of all ages. Since its creation, over 30 ago, the program has been used to help prevent and manage a number of diseases and health conditions. They include osteoporosis, arthritis, Parkinsons disease, asthma and other respiratory conditions, cardio vascular diseases, dementia, depression and other mental health disorders, sarcopenia (loss of muscle tissue due mainly to inactivity), poor balance, stress and more. The Fusion One program offered at the Cultural Center has been assisting local residents and visitors to Charlotte County in a big and bene“cial way. Its muscle and joint re-strengthening service and its balance improvement and re-mobilization services have helped persons using canes, walkers, scooters and wheelchairs to walk with little and, in a number of cases, no external support. Its breathing improvement, weight and pot belly reduction and stress management services are quite popular and have become favorites of many residents of the county. Michael Gudo started the Fusion One program after an extensive back operation and having a hip replaced. He needed a cane to walk. After just six weeks he did not need the cane, and after twelve weeks returned to work doing ten hours a day and almost always on his feet. John Papsun is a satis“ed student who took the Fusion One balance improvement class and experienced exceptional results. When he started his training he was using a cane. Now, several months later, he is cane free.Ž Opportunities to make use of the Fusion One program are many. Here is one. If you have come to the end of your physical therapy sessions and know, deep within, that you have not fully recovered, Fusion One is a viable option. nother important way to experience Fusion One is to discuss it with your doctor or health advisor. Many local physicians and health professionals are aware of the Fusion One program and may refer their patients to it. For many, the Fusion One classes offered at the Cultural Center are a perfect opportunity to gain important knowledge and acquire needed bene“ts. Registration for the chair and balance classes are presently under way. Call the Learning Place at 941-625-4175 ext. 223 to register. Your decision to improve your “tness and health should not be taken lightly. F or many, it is quite often the only hope left to effectively combat an illness or stay alive. Finally, it should be noted that the Fusion One program, as helpful and effective as it is, should not be used to replace the services offered by your physician or health advisors.Using Fusion One to improve your tness and health PHOTO PROVIDED Fitness Center members Charles and Marlene Wellington assume two basic positions of Fusion One.In honor of Grandparents Day on Sept. 9, River Commons Senior Living Community hosted a Super Sundae ice cream social and craft hour of decorating coffee mugs.Celebrating Grandparents Day Activities Director Jesse Vega with Melissa Lockhart of Helping Hands Resident Rita Barnatz and her daughter Rosanne Kruze PHOTOS PROVIDEDTristyn Lewis gives a nice wink at the camera while enjoying her ice cream sundae and decorating a coee mug for her grandmother.

The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has bene“ts for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome. Physicians and other health professionals will periodically speak to the group on cancer related topics.

Class opened with an introduction by special guests from PRWCs, highlighting PRWCs role in the care, preservation and protection of our native wildlife, volunteer opportunities at the facility; followed by an all-levels yoga class, taught by Jennifer French, owner of The Yoga Sanctuary. The donation-based class was open to the public and kicked off The Yoga Sanctuarys Yoga Month Bingo Challenge. All donations collected during the event dire ctly bene“ted PRWC.

Loewensteins team used a cognitive stress test developed in 2013 by the University of Miami, and it involves researchers asking patients to learn a list of 15 words from three categories, “ve from each. Then they ask the patients to learn a new list of 15 words from the same categories. Using the test, they found the patients with the high amyloid levels had the most trouble remembering the second list of words because the “rst interfered, even after the patients were given multiple attempts. This means Loewensteins team accurately identi“ed patients who actually have Alzheimers from those who look like they do, but dont. Its a landmark “nding,Ž Loewenstein said. When Loewenstein “nished his hourlong presentation at East Ridge on Monday, about 15 people rushed to talk to him. Most were fascinated by the fact some of them had had a part in the discovery. Loewenstein and his team have received more than $10 million in state and federal funding for research in the last “ve years. In June, he was named the director of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and Aging at UM, which aims to tackle Alzheimers as it becomes a greater issue. As more and more baby boomers get older, the number of Alzheimers patients is increasing. Loewenstein said if the disease isnt stopped, in the next 10 to 15 years it will wreak havoc for patients and their families, as well as bankrupt the federal government, because the cost to care for the ill will be so high. His teams most recent milestone with the cognitive stress test helps researchers better understand Alzheimers and identify the earliest changes that take place in the brain because of it. This test could potentially help doctors screen patients for Alzheimers at a much cheaper cost than through an amyloid PET scan. The test will also help scientists better select candidates with Alzheimers for clinical and prevention trials. Im satis“ed with the effort,Ž Loewenstein said. Were trying very hard, but I dont think Ill be completely satis“ed until we have a cure or a prevention. Were close, but were still not there.ŽTESTFROM PAGE 1 Specializing in Comprehensive nonSurgical Management of the Spine and other Musculoskeletal Conditions € Lumbar and Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections € Spinal Cord Stimulation € Radiofrequency Ablations € Therapeutic Botox Injections for Relief of Chronic MigrainesBoard Certi“ ed Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physician.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018Equipment Loan Fund for the Blind and Visually ImpairedThe South Sarasota County Council of the Blind announces the Equipment Loan Fund for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The SSCCB is now offering an interest-free loan program to assist persons with vision loss in acquiring assistive devices designed to enhance independence in daily living activities. Devices may include hardware, such as computers, smart phones, and Braille displays, or software, including screen-reading speech programs. Technological advancements have enabled blind and visually impaired persons to perform many tasks that previously were felt to be almost impossible. However, the cost of the new technology is prohibitive to many of these persons, especially the retired and the elderly. This is a problem in Florida, where half of Floridians with visual impairments are over the age of 70. Adaptive equipment is not covered by Medicare, and there is little or no funding available from the state or the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation since this population is not considered to be looking for employment. The SSCCB, however, knows that the need for help in accomplishing acts of daily living doesnt end when you reach a certain age. The Equipment Loan Fund, or ELF for short, will help those with vision loss purchase equipment to use right away, while repaying the loan interest-free over a period of months or even years. North Port resident Dr. Tom Hanson, President of the SSCCB and blind himself since the age of six, believes that each individual knows what would make life easier for him or her personally as a blind or visually impaired person. It could be a $1,500 closed circuit monitor to enlarge written material so that a person with macular degeneration can read their own bank statement, or a $100 Amazon Echo to allow someone with diabetic retinopathy to set their own alarm clock or control a $400 heating and air conditioning thermostat by just speaking a command. Dr. Hanson states that Technology has made the impossible possible. We are helping to make it obtainable.Ž The ELF program is designed as a revolving fund, with repayments going back into the program to allow for a continuing stream of funds available for loans. The fund was started with a donation of $10,000 from the SSCCB and a $5,000 grant from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. Persons residing in Sarasota County can request an application form or obtain further information by contacting the ELF Coordinator at 941-426-2499 or by email at ssccb.information@ Preference will be given to those blind or visually impaired applicants from south Sarasota County, and loans will be granted based on “nancial need and on how well the requested equipment will help maintain or increase the applicants independence. All requests will be con“dential. The South Sarasota County Council of the Blind, formerly the Venice Chapter, FCB, is an af“liate of the Florida Council of the Blind. This af“liate was founded in 1982 and has gone through several name changes. The chapter holds monthly meetings, except for July, August and December, on the second Tuesday of the month. Meetings are held in the Lions Community Room, Venice Health Park, 1283 Jacaranda Blvd., Venice. In addition to the Equipment Loan Fund, the SSCCB provides information and support to newly vision-impaired persons and/or their family members and friends. Everyone is welcome to attend meetings and monthly support group lunches.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 9Provided by TIFFANY WHITAKERGOLISANO CHILDRENS HOSPITAL OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDAAs part of childhood cancer awareness month, Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida has announced its Chief Administrative Of“cer, Armando Llechu, alongside more than a dozen others including doctors and team members, community leaders, and in”uential individuals from Southwest Florida will have their heads shaved by pediatric cancer patients on Sept. 28 in the main atrium of the childrens hospital. To raise awareness and drive philanthropic support that will help local children with cancer, these hero sidekicksŽ are asking the Southwest Florida community to come together and make donations to Barbaras Friends „ Golisano Childrens Hospital Cancer Fund. For more than 20 years Barbaras Friends has supported lifesaving cancer care for children from across Southwest Florida at Golisano Childrens Hospital. The Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology Program is the only program of its kind in Southwest Florida, and no child is denied treatment or turned away as a result of their familys inability to pay for care. Llechu will have his head shaved by McKenzie Hummer. Ten years ago on Jan. 29, 2008, eightyear-old Mackenzie was diagnosed with an aggressive, cancerous brain tumor called medulloblastoma that would threaten to end her life way too early. Twenty surgeries, thirty radiation treatments, ten months of chemotherapy, numerous hospital stays and doctor visits would follow. Over the last few years she has battled late-effect complications as a consequence to the treatments she received to save her life. She is a strong young hero that continues to defy the odds every day. Her strength comes from her faith in God, a “re deep inside to win this battle, and a contagious smile. McKenzie has been an inspiration to me. From the moment I met McKenzie, I knew she possessed more strength and cour age in her little body than I could ever hope to. I was simultaneously encouraged by her strength and saddened by the struggle that is so real in the lives of those we serve,Ž said Armando Llechu, Chief Administrative Of“cer, Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. I knew that day that in order to really care for our patients and families, we needed to connect with them and show our support and solidarity in a fun, yet meaningful way. Through this head-shaving event we can show these children that bald is beautiful, and while we may never have the strength they do, we are with them in their journey.Ž Celebrity barber Yoshi of Blackbeard Company will donate his skills to clean up our sidekicks. For more information about helping kids with cancer in your community, please call Lee Health Foundation at 239-343-6950. To make a donation, go to LeeHealthFoundation. org/BaldForTheBrave.Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida to go bald PHOTO PROVIDED Armando Llechu and patients at Golisano Childrens HospitalPROVIDED BY MCCThe popularity of yoga has grown considerably in recent years. Though yoga may trace its origins to ancient India, nowadays this popular approach to balancing the mind and body is practiced all over the world. For those who want to give yoga a try, it helps to be familiar with some of the basic poses one can expect to encounter at the gym or yoga studio. While few can master the following poses on their first day, beginners should know that if they commit to regularly practicing yoga, these poses will get easier over time. € Chair pose: This is a bended position pose in which the knees are bent over the ankles. Arms are up, and the torso forms a right angle over the thighs. Beginners can experiment with moving the feet closer together for a more advanced pose. Do not extend the knees over the toes and rest on the heels. € Childs pose: This is a pose for rest and stretching. Get in a kneeling position with toes touching and hips and knees spread apart. Extend the arms overhead on the floor and lower the forehead to the ground. € Downward-facing dog: This is an inversion that opens up the entire body and can stretch the spine and the back of the legs. The back should be straight and the tailbone should be pulled away so your body forms a VŽ shape. € Forward fold: When performing a forward fold, you are bending over from the waist. Having a straight spine is more important than having straight legs. € Mountain pose: Mountain pose is perhaps the most basic of all the poses and also one that is quite important, as it aligns the spine with the rest of the body and grounds you. Lift your thighs and lengthen through the waist, drawing in the navel. This serves as the basis for other poses. € Tree pose: Tree pose is an introduction to balance poses. You stand on one foot as the other lays nestled against the thigh on the standing leg. € Warrior one: This pose places a leg forward into a right angle in which the knee is over the arch of the foot. The back leg is extended into a 45-degree angle behind the body. Arms are raised above the head. Both hips should be facing forward. € Warrior two: Warrior two is similar to warrior one, but the arms are stretched in opposite directions parallel to the floor. Turn the head and look out over your arm in the direction you are facing. Various poses may be covered in beginner yoga classes, and beginners unfamiliar with certain poses can simply pause and observe their fellow classmates if they are unsure of certain poses. Always begin slowly and breathe when working through these poses; consult with a yoga instructor to help develop proper form. PHOTO PROVIDEDIn downward-facing dog, the key is to have a straight back and elongate the spine.Common yoga poses to knowstress levels of caregivers tasked with caring for people suffering from Alzheimers disease and dementia. One of the more attractive aspects of yoga is that it requires little or no financial commitment on the part of the people who practice it. Unlike fitness centers that typically require members to commit to yearly contracts or even potentially costly month-to-month memberships, many yoga studies do not require long-term commitments, instead asking that customers pay a small amount each time they visit if they are hesitant to commit to memberships. In addition, yoga requires just a mat and some appropriate clothing, ideally clothing thats conducive to flexibility but not so loose that it will prevent you from performing certain poses. Before including yoga in your exercise regimen, speak with your physician. Once you get the green light, look for a beginners course, explaining to your instructor that you are just starting out. Many yoga studios offer introductory classes that help men and women acclimate their bodies to yoga and the various poses it entails before moving on to more challenging poses.YOGAFROM PAGE 1 Childhood Cancer Awareness MonthAmputee Support GroupThe Amputee Support Group meets at 3 p.m. on the second Monday of every month at the Life Care Center, Punta Gorda.

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. Combat veterans from Gulf Cove United Methodist Church are providing some of the support and discussion that our veterans deserve.

By LAUREN ZUMBACHCHICAGO TRIBUNERetailers wont just be battling each other for customers this holiday season „ theyre also gearing up to “ght over the temporary workers who will make the sales. A strong economy has retailers expecting a busy holiday shopping season, but with unemployment near historic lows, staf“ng up to handle extra demand could be a challenge. Its going to be a real battle for these retailers to get the right labor in,Ž said Andrew Challenger, vice president of Chicagobased outplacement and executive coaching “rm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Target plans to hire 120,000 people to “ll seasonal jobs in its 1,839 stores, about 20 percent more than last year. That matches the number of jobs Amazon announced ahead of last years holiday season and is the largest seasonal hiring estimate from a bricks-and-mortar retailer since Challenger, Gray & Christmas began tracking the “gure in 2012. About 8,000 of Targets jobs will be in the Chicago area, with another 1,000 elsewhere in Illinois. Target also is hiring 7,500 people to work in its distribution and ful“llment centers nationwide. The retailer said it needs more seasonal workers to handle online orders from stores, such as in-store or curbside pickup or shipping items to customers homes. The company said it plans to hire nearly twice as many seasonal workers to “ll online orders compared with last year. FedEx also said it plans to hire more seasonal workers this year: 55,000, up from 50,000 in 2017. Macys plans to hire about 80,000 seasonal workers, the same number it initially announced last year before adding another 7,000 holiday jobs in December. But fewer of this years group of holiday hires will be working in Macys stores. About 23,500 of the 80,000 jobs are in ful“llment centers handling online orders, up from 18,000 last year, the Cincinnati-based department store chain said. Retailers have cut thousands of jobs while closing stores in recent years, but theyve also created new ones in areas supporting growing online sales, such as ful“llment centers, logistics and transportation. The workers losing jobs on the sales ”oor at closing stores arent necessarily the same ones getting new jobs in ful“llment centers, but more new jobs have been announced than cut, Challenger said. There are fewer unemployed job seekers too „ the nationwide unemployment rate was 3.9 percent in August, down from 4.4 percent during the same month last year „ and there are signs retailers expect more competition for seasonal hires. Some, like Kohls and J.C. Penney, began hiring seasonal workers signi“cantly earlier than in prior years. Wisconsin-based Kohls announced in June „ about three months earlier than last year „ that seasonal jobs were available at more than 300 stores. Additional hiring started at all stores, distribution and ful“llment centers in August, and Kohls has holding hiring events in stores. Target and Macys have scheduled nationwide hiring events in October. Challenger said he expects others to face off on pay and perks. Wages have been shockingly slow to rise for many years, and its hard to imagine some retailers arent going to have to raise wages to compete,Ž he said. Target said all new hires would start at a minimum wage of $12 per hour and get store discounts. As a new perk, the retailer will randomly select one hourly worker at each store and distribution center to receive a $500 gift card and $500 donation to a local community organization of their choice. As the marketplace becomes more competitive, the signi“cant investment were making in our team, including our increased minimum hourly wages, sets Target apart,Ž Stephanie Lundquist, Targets chief human resources officer, said in a news release. Kohls, which plans to hire more than 2,300 seasonal workers in the Chicago area, has competitive wages, a weekly pay schedule and certain days when employees get largerthan-usual discounts, spokeswoman Julia Markun said. Macys also said it gives seasonal workers competitive pay, merchandise discounts and the ability to earn quarterly incentives if they achieve certain goals. Its not clear how in”uential perks like giveaways and extra discounts are compared with hourly wages, but it suggests retailers are looking for ways to stand out, Challenger said. Theyre getting creative because they have to “gure out ways to get people in the door,Ž he said.Target, Macys, Kohls dangle discounts, gift cards for seasonal workers: Its going to be a real battle to hire staff By CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAYDEAR CARRIE: I work for a food manufacturer. For the past month the of“ce has been infested with yellow jackets. I was told that the warehouse was not following procedures, which call for it to dispose of certain food products in secure dumpsters. As a result the yellow jackets have swarmed the disposal area and made their way to the roof and into the air-conditioning vents. I am scared of bees and am also allergic to them. Weve had the exterminator in a few times. He said we need to put screens on the air-conditioning openings on the roof of the building where the bees are coming in. Senior management does not seem concerned about bees ”ying around and doesnt think the screens are needed. My boss is not afraid. She said if she gets stung, shell just put toothpaste on the sting and move on. I am terri“ed of bees, and the big room where most of us sit is the most affected. Ive had a couple of scares. A bee landed in my hair, and one chased me around the of“ce. Once, I borrowed a laptop and con“ned myself to the conference room. But in order to continue working apart from my area, my boss said she needed a note from my Help Wanted: Shes got a bee in her bonnet and wants boss to deal with the problemBOSS | 9 adno=3613688-1 Mission Driven...

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 9JOBS doctor stating that Im allergic to bee stings. I got one right away. As it turns out, I couldnt spend much time in the conference room because of meetings, so my boss said I could stay in a former kitchen area. For some reason those rooms are not affected. Though I have options, Im shocked and offended by managements lack of concern about this. My co-workers who remain in the affected area are not happy, and they are dealing with having to kill bees every day. There are at least a dozen bees a day that ”y in. I am not free of the bees, either. I still have to walk into the main affected area to get my work off the printer and to get my “les. Ive sprayed Hikers Guard on myself on a daily basis just to try to keep the yellow jackets away. The “rst day I encountered them again I left early because I was so scared. I hope bee season ends soon. Im stressed out walking through the of“ce. Is this problem serious enough to be an OSHA issue? „ Scared DEAR SCARED: It probably is, according to the head of the local of“ce of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA has certainly investigated bee sting instances, and in many cases they have been fatal,Ž said Tony Ciuffo, area director of OSHA for Long Island. This is certainly a concern when the employer has already been alerted that they have an employee that is allergic to bee stings.Ž OSHAs general industry standard as stated in Book 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, says: Every enclosed workplace shall be so constructed, equipped and maintained, so far as reasonably practicable, as to prevent the entrance or harborage of rodents, insects and other vermin. A continuing and effective extermination program shall be instituted where their presence is detected.Ž He said you can “le a complaint at or call the local of“ce at 516-334-3344. I also checked with a workplace expert on the message that managements nonchalant attitude is communicating to employees. She sees long-term damage to morale. By not addressing the hazard, the management is basically saying to the staff, We dont care about you or your safety, Ž said Rita Maniscalco, a Huntington, N.Y.-based career, life and business coach. Employees will not be able to do their best work in this environment. The morale of the team is sure to suffer.Ž And whats worse, she said, Managements blatant disregard for the safety of the staff will be remembered long after the bees are gone.Ž Go to for more on OSHA regulations regarding insects in the workplace.BOSSFROM PAGE 1 By CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAYDEAR CARRIE: I am part of a staff of eight in a doctors of“ce. We do not get paid for holidays, sick time or vacation. Now the doctor is thinking about closing the of“ce this Friday. But we didnt ask for the day off and are willing to come in because if he closes the of“ce, we will not get paid. Is he legally allowed to do this? „ Doctoring the Schedule DEAR DOCTORING: Just as an aside, I always “nd it incredible that a doctor doesnt give employees sick days. He or she of all people should know the importance of such a bene“t. But to your question, if you and your colleagues are hourly, or nonexempt, employees, the doctor has to pay you only when you work, even if he or she is the reason you arent on the job. So when the of“ce isnt open, you dont have to be paid. When inclement weather hits and companies close as a result, they dont have to pay hourly workers. But some companies do because they dont want to cause hardships for their employees. For exempt employees, such as managers and professionals, the situation is different. They would have to be paid even if the of“ce closed. Their pay could be docked only if they missed a full day of work for personal reasons.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS TANZANIA DEATH TOLL 209 AS SURVIVOR FOUND IN CAPSIZED FERRYSee page 2 Sunday, September 23, 2018 By NASSER KARIMI and JON GAMBRELLASSOCIATED PRESSTEHRAN, Iran „ Militants disguised as soldiers opened “ re Saturday on an annual Iranian military parade in the countrys oil-rich southwest, killing at least 25 people and wounding over 60 in the deadliest terror attack to strike the country in nearly a decade. Women and children scattered along with once-marching Revolutionary Guard soldiers as heavy gun“ re rang out at the parade in Ahvaz, the chaos captured live on state television. The regions Arab separatists, once only known for nighttime attacks on unguarded oil pipelines, claimed responsibility for the brazen assault. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blamed regional countries and their U.S. mastersŽ for funding and arming the separatists, issuing a stark warning as regional tensions remain high in the wake of the U.S. withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of Iranian lives,Ž Zarif wrote on Twitter. The attack came as rows of Revolutionary Guardsmen marched down Ahvazs Quds, or Jerusalem, Boulevard. It was one of many around the country marking the start of Irans long 1980s war with Iraq, commemorations known as the Sacred Defense Week.Ž Journalists and onlookers turned to look toward the “ rst shots, then the rows of marchers broke as soldiers and civilians sought cover under sustained gun“ re. Iranian soldiers used their bodies at time to shield civilians in the melee, with one Guardsman in full dress uniform and sash carrying away a bloodied boy. Oh God! Go, go, go! Lie down! Lie down!Ž one man screamed as a woman ” ed with her baby. In the aftermath, paramedics tended to the wounded as soldiers, some bloodied, helped their comrades to ambulances. Video obtained by The Associated Press of the aftermath showed bodies of soldiers, some appearing lifeless, laying on the ground in pools of blood. One had a blanket covering him. A man screamed in grief. The attack killed at least 25 people and wounded over 60, according to the state-run IRNA news agency. It said By SARAH D. WIRELOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)WASHINGTON „ Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, her attorneys said in a letter Saturday. Ford, a research psychologist at Palo Alto University, still hopes that the Senate Judiciary Committee will meet several conditions. The letter, which says the attorneys are disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process,Ž asked for further negotiations for conditions at the expected hearing. The back and forth about when Ford would speak with the committee, and under what conditions, has dragged on for several days, blocking what had appeared a likely party-line vote for the Supreme Court nominee. Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, the committee chairman, had set a 5 p.m. Friday deadline for Ford to make a decision, but then changed that to 10 p.m. He said that if she did not reply, the committee would go ahead with a hearing Monday without her and vote on Kavanaughs nomination. Fords attorneys asked late Friday evening for an extra day to consult with their client, saying the deadline was aggressive and arti“ cial.Ž Grassley said on Twitter Friday evening that he would give Ford more time to decide, but signaled that his patience was running thin. Grassley agreed to Fords requests to allow just one TV camera in the hearing room and to limit news media access, to provide breaks during the testimony, and to keep Kavanaugh out of the room while Ford testi“ es. But he balked at her request that Kavanaugh testify “ rst, that only senators „ and not committee attorneys „ ask questions, and that subpoenas be issued to compel other potential witnesses to testify. Democrats on the committee have joined Ford in pushing for those stipulations, saying that senators have a responsibility to ask the questions. Republicans hope to avoid a repeat of the divisive con“ rmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991, and the political awkwardness optics of a panel of men questioning a female victim of sexual misconduct. They have pushed for staff or outside counsel to ask Ford and Kavanaugh questions. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the highest-ranking Democrat on the committee, accused Republicans of bullying Ford and said there were unpleasant echoes of how Thomas accuser, Anita Hill, was treated before Thomas was con“ rmed. Its clear that Republicans have learned nothing over the last 27 years,Ž Feinstein said. Bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to con“ rm a nominee „ particularly GENEVA (AP) „ Drinking too much alcohol killed more than 3 million people in 2016, mostly men, the World Health Organization said. The U.N. health agency also warned that current policy responses are not suf“ cient to reverse trends predicting an increase in consumption over the next 10 years. In a new report Friday, the agency said that about 237 million men and 46 million women faced alcohol problems, with the highest prevalence in Europe and the Americas. Europe has the highest global per capita alcohol consumption, even though it has already dropped by 10 percent since 2010. Around a third of alcohol-related deaths were a result of injuries, including car crashes and selfharm, while about one in “ ve were due to either digestive disorders or cardiovascular diseases. Cancers, infectious diseases, mental disorders and other health conditions were also to blame. Far too many people, their families and communities suffer the consequences of the harmful use of alcohol through violence, injuries, mental health problems and diseases like cancer and stroke,Ž said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of WHO. Its time to step up action to prevent this serious threat to the development of healthy societies.Ž The average daily consumption of alcohol by people who consume it is about two glasses of wine, a large bottle of beer or two shots of spirits. Globally, about 2.3 billion people are current drinkers. The report, the third in a series after ones in 2010 and 2014, relies on information from 2016 „ the latest data available. WHO said the trends and projections point to an expected increase in global alcohol per capita consumption over the next decade, particularly in Southeast Asia and the Americas. The policy responses which are currently in place in countries are de“ nitely not suf“ cient to reverse the trends, which we observe in several parts of the world, or to improve signi“ cantly this situation,Ž Dr. Vladimir Poznyak, coordinator of WHOs management of substance abuse unit, told reporters. When we look at the trends BY BLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)BEIJING …… With new tariffs by the United States and China to go into effect Monday, there is no improvement in sight for relations between the two nations. $200 billion worth of Chinese products will be subject to tariffs on top of the $50 billion in goods on which tariffs have already imposed. The combined $250 billion in products subject to tariffs is almost half the value of imports from China last year. Meanwhile, $110 billion worth of goods from the U.S. will become subject to Chinese tariffs around the same time, or about 70 percent of the value of goods it bought from America in 2017. We dont want to, but we probably will have no choice,Ž Trump said of the tariff escalation at the Oval Of“ ce last week. Were making a lot of headway with China.Ž China Saturday called off trade talks with U.S. of“ cials that had been planned for next week. U.S. State Department sanctions Thursday against Chinas defense agency and its director contributed to the decision, people familiar with the matter said. Theres a growing consensus in Beijing that substantive talks will be possible with the Trump administration only after U.S. midterm elections in November, those people said. The U.S. products that China has targeted for retaliation have changed over time, shifting from cars and agricultural commodities to industrial goods. In the initial round, soybeans and most of Chinas imports of U.S. cars were hit. In the second round, the focus has widened and shifted more to capital goods and other imports, raising the cost for industrial companies. Thats partly because many of the goods traded in large volumes with the U.S. were already covered by the “ rst round, so its getting harder to “ nd things to impose new tariffs on. That can be seen in the number of goods affected. In round one there were 659 U.S. imports hit with the percent tariff, while this time there are Attack during military parade kills at least 25 in Iran AP PHOTOIn this photo provided by Mehr News Agency, civilians try to take shelter in a shooting scene, during a military parade marking the 38th anniversary of Iraqs 1980 invasion of Iran, in the southwestern city of Ahvaz, Iran, Saturday.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018By TOM ODULAASSOCIATED PRESSNAIROBI, Kenya „ It was a stunning discovery. As rescue divers probed a capsized Tanzanian ferry two days after the disaster and the death toll soared past 200, a man was found in an air pocket, alive. He was an engineer, regional commissioner John Mongella told reporters. As the badly overloaded ferry overturned on Thursday in the “nal stretch before reaching shore, the man shut himself into the engine room, the Tanzanian Broadcasting Corporation reported. Video footage showed the man, barefoot and head lolling, carried quickly along a busy street by medical workers and military personnel as a siren wailed. His condition was not immediately known. No further survivors were likely. Search efforts were ending so the focus could turn to identifying the dead, Tanzanias defense chief Venance Mabeyo told reporters at the scene. Mass graves were dug, and colorfully painted cof“ns arrived. Hundreds of family members and others waited quietly on the shore. One woman dropped to her knees in the sand next to the covered body of her sister and wept. We have found him after three days and now we are transporting his body to Kamasi for burial,Ž said Temeni Katebarira, the brother of one victim. Earlier in the day, workers continued to haul bodies from the water. Abandoned shoes were scattered on the sand. From morning till now we have retrieved more than 58 bodies. This includes both children and adults,Ž said TropistaTemi, a Red Cross volunteer. Because of the congestion we have not been able to do full totaling. Later, we will do a full tally.Ž But the total number of deaths might never be known. No one is sure how many people were on the overcrowded ferry, which of“cials said had a capacity of 101. It tipped as people returning from a busy market day with their goods prepared to disembark, while horri“ed “shermen and others watched. Of“cials on Friday said at least 40 people had been rescued. President John Magufuli has ordered the arrests of those responsible. He said the ferry captain already had been detained after leaving the steering to someone who wasnt properly trained, The Citizen newspaper reported. This is a great disaster for our nation,Ž Magufuli told the nation in a televised address late Friday, announcing four days of national mourning. Pope Francis, the United Nations secretarygeneral, Russian President Vladimir Putin and a number of African leaders have expressed shock and sorrow. The MV Nyerere, named for the former president who led the East African nation to independence, was traveling between the islands of Ukara and Ukerewe when it sank, according to the government agency in charge of servicing the vessels. Accidents are often reported on the large freshwater lake surrounded by Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Some of the deadliest have occurred in Tanzania, where aging passenger ferries often carry hundreds of passengers and well beyond capacity. In 1996, more than 800 people died when passenger and cargo ferry MV Bukoba sank on Lake Victoria. And nearly 200 people died in 2011 when the MV Spice Islander I sank off Tanzanias Indian Ocean coast near Zanzibar.Tanzania death toll 209 as survivor found in capsized ferry AP PHOTOSThe number of dead soared past 200 while a survivor was found inside a capsized Tanzania ferry two days after the Lake Victoria disaster, ocials said Saturday, while search eorts were ending to focus on identifying bodies. Men carry a con for one of the victims of the MV Nyerere passenger ferry on Ukara Island, Tanzania Saturday.ROME (AP) „ Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon declared Saturday that far-right patriotsŽ are the new eliteŽ of Europe as he brought his push for a trans-national, anti-European Union drive to Italy. The ex-aide to U.S. President Donald Trump addressed a forum in Rome organized by a small far-right Italian opposition party. Bannon was asked if there should be a new eliteŽ in growing, far-right populist movements. His reply? The new elite in this populist movement are the patriotsŽ in society. He heaped praised on populist leaders, pitting sovereignty movements against Brussels-based European Union in”uence on the continent. Among the models he cited was one in Italys six-month-old populist government, which includes hard-line Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who leads the right-wing, anti-migrant League party. Salvini, who addressed the forum earlier Saturday, said the farright political spectrum includes the true defenders of European values.Ž The Italian, who is also a deputy premier, said the European Parliament elections in May across the continent offer right-wingers the occasion to send a force into government in Europe thats not socialist.Ž Bannon, in his comments, encouraged Italys populists to push their sovereignty-focused agenda to counter EU policies. He is working to help form a united trans-national front to push politics in Europe far to the right. British parents Tom Evans and Kate James were honored at the forum for their unsuccessful legal battle to keep their toddler son, Al“e Evans, on life support in a British hospital. Far-right “gures had focused on the case as an example of the wishes of one family against a socialistŽ state. The 23-year-monthold child died in April after British judges agreed with doctors that more treatment was futile. He had a degenerative neurological disease that left him with almost no brain function. Pope Francis was among those championing the cause of the parents. Tom Evans told the forum that a foundation has been set up to help people in a dif“cult stage of life like Al“es parents had endured, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. The political event was organized by the Brothers of Italy party, whose political roots come from a descendent of a neo-fascist party. Sardinias far-right governor, Paolo Truzzo, a Brothers of Italy leader, gave the award to the father, who recounted the drama of his son and who thanked, among others, the pope and the partys leader, Giorgia Meloni, for their support.Bannon dubs the far-right Europes new elite patriots OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) „ A powerful tornado that carved a path through parts of Canadas capital snapped trees, tossed cars and obliterated dozens of homes leaving what the citys mayor on Saturday said resembled a war scene.Ž More than 150,000 customers were still without power following the tornado, which churned through pockets of Ottawas west and south ends, as well as densely populated sections of the neighboring Quebec city of Gatineau late Friday. Authorities said dozens of people suffered injuries, however there were no reports of fatalities. The Ottawa Hospital tweeted that two people were in critical condition, one was in serious condition and two others were stable. Of“cials set up shelters for those who couldnt return home and they said crisis counselling would be available. It looked like it was something from a movie scene or a war scene,Ž Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson told reporters Saturday describing what he saw in the area of Dunrobin, where some 60 buildings were wiped out or partially destroyed. Literally, it looks like some bomb was dropped from the air.Ž Much of Dunrobin, a semi-rural community about 22 miles west of downtown Ottawa, remained cordoned off by police. Personal items were strewn everywhere „ a baby blanket, a life jacket, mattresses, lawn mowers, a fridge, a kitchen sink lying on the grass and even a love seat wrapped around a telephone pole. Meteorologist Simon Legault said there was evidence of powerful winds between 112-137 miles per hour.Canadas capital reeling after tornado hammers communities CANADIAN PRESS VIA APPeople walk past debris in a Gatineau, Quebec, Canada neighborhood on SaturdayHurricane Maria caravan, rally focuses on Trumps Mar-a-LagoWEST PALM BEACH (AP) „ Activists marking the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Marias devastation of Puerto Rico are staging a rally and caravan focused on President Donald Trumps Mar-aLago resort in Florida. Organizers say the Saturday afternoon event will include about 20 buses carrying Puerto Ricans and members of other Hispanic groups, along with faith leaders, progressives and others around the Palm Beach resort. A rally will follow in nearby West Palm Beach to remember those who suffered and died in last years hurricane. Among the scheduled speakers is Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, who faces a re-election challenge from Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Both have campaigned steadily among Puerto Ricans living in Florida. Trump recently has challenged estimates that nearly 3,000 died in the storm, claiming the number is aimed at making him look bad.Boy dies a day after choking at day careJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ Of“cials say a toddler died a day after choking on a toy at a Florida day care. The Florida Times-Union reports that the Florida Department of Children and Families says the 1-year-old boy died Friday. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Of“ce says the boy had been rushed to Wolfson Childrens Hospital Thursday afternoon. Doctors told police he was in critical condition and suffering from major brain damage. State of“cials say the choking incident occurred at Tip Top 24 Hour Learning Center. No criminal charges were immediately “led, but law enforcement was investigating.Man killed while walking daughter to bus stopOCALA (AP) „ Authorities say a Florida man was struck and killed by a vehicle while walking his daughter to her school bus stop. The Ocala Star-Banner reports that 38-year-old Jeffrey Todd Kimberlin died shortly after arriving at an Ocala hospital Friday morning. The Florida Highway Patrol says Kimberlin was walking with his 7-yearold daughter along the shoulder of a rural road when a cargo van hit him from behind. The girl was not injured. The vans driver told troopers another vehicle had cut in front of him, forcing him off the road. He was charged with driving without a license.Police: Man stole victims car after fatal crashST. PETERSBURG (AP) „ Police say a Florida man was arrested after fatally striking a man who stopped to help a motorist on an interstate highway and then stealing the victims car. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the body of 22-year-old Dhimitri Andoni was discovered Friday along Interstate 275 in St. Petersburg about 15 hours after the accident. Troopers say Andoni stopped his car on the shoulder to assist another driver when he was struck by a pickup truck driven by 30-year-old Dana Thomas Byrd. Authorities say Byrd stole Andonis car, leaving his truck behind, and abandoned Andonis car at a parking lot. A road ranger discovered Byrds truck and Andonis body, leading to Byrds arrest Friday on several charges. It wasnt clear Saturday if Byrd has an attorney to speak for him.Woman gets 9 years in prison for arson plotTAMPA (AP) „ A Florida woman has been sentenced to nine years and two months in prison for plotting to burn down a house occupied by two adults and six children. Court records show that 39-year-old Rashica Ford was sentenced Friday in Tampa federal court. She was convicted in June of conspiracy to commit arson. Authorities say Ford directed her boyfriend, Jodarin Whit“eld, and her brother, Herbert Pinckney, to set “re to a Sarasota home in March 2015 as retaliation for an earlier “ght. The men were supposed to throw a Molotov cocktail through the victims bedroom window, but the window didnt break, and only the homes exterior burned as the occupants escaped unharmed. Whit“eld was previously sentenced to eight years and three months. Pinckney was sentenced to two years and six months. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEWORLD/STATE NEWS


The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) „ A California kindergartener can keep bringing a cannabis-based drug used for emergency treatment of a rare form of epilepsy to her public school, a judge ruled Friday. The Santa Rosa PressDemocrat reported that a judge sided with the family of 5-year-old Brooke Adams. The Rincon Valley Union School District in Santa Rosa sought to ban the ointment from school grounds because it contains the active ingredient in marijuana. Authorities argued that allowing Brooke to use the drug at school violated state and federal laws barring medical marijuana on school grounds. Medical marijuana use in private with a doctors recommendation is legal in California. A judges temporary order permitted Brooke to start school in August while the districts objections were considered. A nurse accompanies Brooke to school and has had to apply the oil three times to treat seizures. Judge Charles Marson made the order permanent on Friday. Marson is a judge in the state of“ce of Administrative Hearings Special Education Division, which handles disagreements between school districts and parents of children with disabilities. I was so overwhelmed with emotion and joy that we dont have to “ght anymore after a battle of over two years,Ž said Jana Adams, the girls mother. She can just go to school like any other child and we dont have to keep pushing to get what she needs.Ž The familys lawyer Joe Rogoway said he hopes the ruling opens the door for other students who say they need to use a cannabis-based drug on campus for medical reasons.

Paul Gosar have urged voters to cast their ballots against the Arizona Republican in November in an unusual political ad sponsored by the rival candidate. The television ad from Democrat David Brill combines video interviews with Gosar-family siblings who ask voters to usher Paul Gosar out of of“ce because he has broken with the familys values. They do not elaborate. They previously condemned the congressmans false accusation in 2017 that wealthy Democratic donor George Soros was a Nazi collaborator in World War II. Its intervention time,Ž Tim Gosar says in the ad, endorsing Brill. And intervention time means that you go to vote, and you go to vote Paul out.Ž Phone calls Saturday to Paul Gosars of“ces in Washington and Arizona were not returned. Gosar is a fourth-term congressman for a sprawling district in northeastern and central Arizona. In a separate video segment, the siblings urge voters to hold the congressman accountable on health care, employment and environmental issues. Paul Gosars comments about Soros came in a television interview with Vice News in which he also suggested a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, might have been a liberal conspiracy. In the new ad, the congressmans siblings describe their decision to speak out as saddening, horrible and ultimately a matter of pride for the family from Wyoming. I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,Ž says Joan Gosar, an engineer. Pete Gosar, another sibling who ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for governor of Wyoming in 2014, does not appear in the ad, though he has publicly criticized his brothers views in the past. The rift in the Gosar clan is not the only sibling feud to wend its way into campaigning this year for Congress, as Democrats seek to retake majority control of the House and Senate from Republicans. In the race to replace House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Democratic congressional candidate Randy Bryce is confronting an ad in which his brother endorses the Republican candidate. That upset Nancy Bryce, their mother, who has denounced the campaign ad in a letter that was recently made public.6 siblings of Arizona GOP congressman publically endorse his opponent AP PHOTOIn this Dec. 2013, “le photo, U.S. Rep.

By KEVIN FREKINGASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ The Federal Aviation Administration would be required to set new minimum requirements for seats on airplanes under legislation to be considered in the House this week, possibly giving passengers a break from ever-shrinking legroom and cramped quarters. The regulation of seat width and legroom is part of a “ve-year extension of federal aviation programs announced early Saturday by Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate committees that oversee the nations air travel. Congress faces a Sept. 30 deadline to keep FAA programs running. The Senate will also need to take up the bill this week or both chambers will need to pass a shortterm extension. The bill would prohibit the involuntary bumping of passengers who have already boarded a plane. But in a nod to the power of the commercial airliners, lawmakers declined to include language that would have prohibited airlines from imposing fees deemed not reasonable and proportional.Ž Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida said lawmakers from both chambers agreed it was time to take action on ever-shrinking seats.Ž Relief could soon be on the way for weary airline passengers facing smaller and smaller seats,Ž Nelson said. In July, the FAA rejected the idea of setting minimum standards for airlines seats and legroom as a safety measure. But Congress appears determined to require the FAA to do so. The room between rows „ measured from a point on one seat to the same point on the seat in the next row „ has been shrinking for many years as airlines squeeze more seats onto their planes. It was once commonly 34 or 35 inches, and is now less than 30 inches on some planes. Lawmakers also included several provisions to address concerns about increased airport noise levels caused by new ”ight paths. The bill would require the FAA to study the potential health impacts of ”ight noise and the feasibility of amending existing departure procedures. The bill would also mandate that ”ight attendants get a minimum of 10 hours of rest between their work shifts and require airlines to communicate better with customers during mass ”ight cancellations and groundings. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, said he expects the House and Senate to move quickly to send the bill to the presidents desk.Congress takes aim at shrinking seats, legroom on planes By MARYCLAIRE DALEASSOCIATED PRESSBill Cosbys sentencing hearing Monday will begin with testimony about his sex offender evaluation and, presumably, a “erce debate over whether the 81-year-old actor should be branded a sexually violent predator. The stakes are high given the lifetime counseling, community alerts and public shaming the designation would trigger. And it could become evidence in the defamation lawsuits “led against Cosby by accusers who say he branded them liars when he denied molesting them. Defense lawyers say the states latest sex-reporting law, despite several revisions, remains unconstitutional. Its the modern-day version of a scarlet letter,Ž said lawyer Demetra Mehta, a former Philadelphia public defender, which I think is sort of an interesting philosophical issue at this time with the #MeToo movement, but also criminal justice reform.Ž Pennsylvanias sex-offender board has examined Cosby and recommended he be deemed a predator, concluding that he has a mental defect or personality disorder that makes him prone to criminal behavior. Montgomery County Judge Steven T. ONeill will have the “nal say Monday. ONeill has presided over the case for nearly three years, from shortly after Cosbys December 2015 arrest to a 2017 trial that ended in a jury deadlock to the jury “nding this past April that Cosby drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia estate in 2004. He faces anything from probation to 30 years in prison on the three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Its unclear if the judge, in weighing the predator label, will consider the dozens of other Cosby accusers who have gone public or his deposition in the trial victims 2006 lawsuit, when Cosby acknowledged getting quaaludes to give women before sex; described sex acts as the penile entranceŽ to an orificeŽ and digital penetrationŽ; and said he often gave young women alcohol but didnt drink or take drugs himself because he liked to stay in control. Defense lawyers fighting the predator label note that sexual offender registration laws are in flux in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Numerous courts, including the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, have found the laws so vague as to be unconstitutional. Courts have also debated whether the programs unfairly amount to extra punishment, especially for people convicted of misdemeanors. Cosby has added one of the states top appellate lawyers, Peter Goldberger, to his defense team. This is going to probably be a very important case for sex-offender law when its up on appeal,Ž Mehta said. Its an area of law that is just sort of unsettled right now. Theres a lot up on appeal, but theres not a lot decided.Ž Pennsylvania alone now has 2,200 people classified as sexually violent predators, of the more than 20,000 people on its Megans Law list of sex offenders. The Megans Law group has their names, pictures and towns listed online, but theyre not subject to the same monthly counseling mandates as the predatorŽ group, and authorities dont actively warn communities of their nearby presence. The stigma may not be as paralyzing for a man like Cosby „ in his 80s, living in a gated house and presumably not looking for work or going to the local gym. However, its one more stain on his reputation. Defense motions note that the sex offender boards recommendation followed an evaluation by just a single board member, and that the evidence needs only to meet a clear and convincingŽ standard. That violates Cosbys right to reputation without confrontation, without trial by jury and without proof beyond a reasonable doubt,Ž defense lawyer Joseph Green Jr. argued in a July court filing. Legal experts believe a predatorŽ classification would be a legal finding that Cosby accusers could use in their defamation suits, including one involving seven women plaintiffs thats pending in Massachusetts. That may (also) be about legacy protection, about what the obituary says, what the Wikipedia page says,Ž said Daniel Filler, dean of Drexel Universitys Kline College of Law. You can bet, especially in crowd-sourced things, everythings going to begin with hes a sexually violent predator. Its like a slogan. He has a tag now.ŽCosby to fight sexually violent predator tagSentencing hearing Monday will begin with testimony about his sex offender evaluation AP PHOTOIn this Nov. 11, 2014, “le photo, comedian and Navy veteran Bill Cosby speaks during a Veterans Day ceremony in Philadelphia.

At least eight of the dead served in the Revolutionary Guard, an elite paramilitary unit that answers only to Irans supreme leader, according to the semi-of“cial Tasnim news agency. We suddenly realized that some armed people wearing fake military out“ts started attacking the comrades from behind (the stage) and then opened “re on women and children,Ž an unnamed wounded soldier told state TV. They were just aimlessly shooting around and did not have a speci“c target.Ž State TV hours later reported that all four gunmen had been killed, with three dying during the attack and one later succumbing to his wounds at a hospital. President Hassan Rouhani ordered Irans Intelligence Ministry to immediately investigate the attack. The president stressed that the response of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the slightest threat would be harsh, but those who support the terrorists should be accountable,Ž IRNA reported. Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described the attack as exposing the atrocity and viciousness of the enemies of the Iranian nation.Ž Their crime is a continuation of the conspiracies by the U.S.-backed regimes in the region which have aimed at creating insecurity in our dear country,Ž Khamenei said in a statement. However, to their dismay, the Iranian nation will persist on the noble and prideful path they have taken and will „ like before „ overcome all animosities.Ž Tensions have been on the rise between Iran and the U.S. The Trump administration in May pulled out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, and since then has re-imposed sanctions that were eased under the deal. It also has steadily ramped up pressure on Iran to try to get it to stop what Washington calls malign activitiesŽ in the region. Despite those touchy relations, the U.S. government strongly deplored the attack, saying that the United States condemns all acts of terrorism and the loss of any innocent lives.Ž We stand with the Iranian people against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism and express our sympathy to them at this terrible time,Ž State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. Initially, authorities described the assailants as tak“ri gunmen,Ž a term previously used to describe the Islamic State group. Iran has been deeply involved in the “ght against IS in Iraq and has aided embattled Syrian President Bashar al Assad in his countrys long war. But later, state media and government of“cials seemed to come to the consensus that Arab separatists in the region were responsible. The separatists accuse Irans Persiandominated government of discriminating against its ethnic Arab minority, though an Ahvazi Arab, Gen. Ali Shamkhani, serves as the secretary of Irans Supreme National Security Council. Khuzestan province also has seen recent protests over Irans nationwide drought, as well as economic protests. Iran has blamed its Mideast archrival, the Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for funding Arab separatists activity. State media in Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the attack, though a Saudi-linked, Farsilanguage satellite channel based in the United Kingdom immediately carried an interview with an Ahvazi activist claiming Saturdays attack. Hamid Baeidinejad, Irans ambassador to the U.K., called the channels decision a heinous actŽ in a post on Twitter and said his country would “le a complaint with British authorities over the broadcast. Yacoub Hor al-Tostari, a spokesman for the Arab Struggle Movement to Liberate Ahvaz, later told the AP that members of an umbrella group of Ahvazi activists his organization leads carried out the attack. The attack undermined the Iranian government on the day it wants to give a message to the world that it is powerful and in control,Ž al-Tostari said. To bolster his claim, he gave details about one of the attackers that the AP could not immediately verify. The Islamic State group also claimed responsibility for the attack in a message on its Amaaq news agency, but provided no evidence it carried out the assault. They also initially wrongly said the Ahvaz attack targeted Rouhani, who was in Tehran. The militants have made a string of false claims in the wake of major defeats in Iraq and Syria. In Tehran, Rouhani watched a military parade that included ballistic missiles capable of reaching Israel and U.S. military bases in the Mideast. Rouhani said the U.S. withdraw from the nuclear deal was an attempt to get Iran to give up its military arsenal. United Nations inspectors say Iran is still complying with the deal, which saw it limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Iran neither put its defensive arms aside nor lessens its defensive capabilities,Ž Rouhani said. Iran will add to its defensive power day by day.Ž Meanwhile, Iranian Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi, a spokesman for the armed forces, alleged without evidence that the four militants involved in Saturdays attack were dependent to the intelligence services of the U.S. and the MossadŽ of Israel. They have been trained and organized in two Persian Gulf countries,Ž he said, without elaborating.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1at a time when shes receiving death threats „ is an extreme abuse of power.Ž Ford wrote Feinstein a letter in July, seeking con“dentiality.

Though theres been no credible threats against the event, the security concerns are so broad that the New York Police Department has considered how it would stop assassins armed with poison or killer drones. The NYPDs main line of defense will be thousands of extra police of“cers ”ooding the streets as part of a carefully coordinated effort with the Secret Service and other federal and local law enforcement agencies to protect both the United Nations and Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, said Police Commissioner James ONeill. Since the end of last years General Assembly, weve been planning how to best protect the various sites and all the people inside them, while also minimizing the impact on New Yorkers,Ž ONeill said at recent news conference at a command center at police headquarters. The 73rd Session of the General Assembly began on Sept. 18, but the higher-level meetings start Monday. The security arsenal features police boats patrolling the East River near the U.N., aviation units overhead and teams of of“cers trained to respond to chemical, biological and other potential terror threats. About 50 city Department of Sanitation dump trucks “lled with sand and 230 concrete barriers will be positioned at intersections and other strategic locations to guard against car or truck attacks like the one last year that killed eight people on a bike path in Lower Manhattan. Police said other preparations have included consulting with British authorities about the poisoning of a former Russian spy there earlier this year by way of a weapons-grade nerve agent. British of“cials say the attack was carried out by Russian operatives. Police have also studied an attack on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro last month using drones rigged with explosives. Maduro said this past week that he may have to suspend a planned trip to the United Nations because of concerns his opponents would try to kill him if he travels abroad. But the NYPD is expecting more than 200 other world leaders to show up, all needing to move around the city in motorcades with police escorts. Those foreign dignitaries ”ying state aircraft into New Yorks Kennedy Airport will be greeted with strict enforcement of security rules requiring the planes to depart within two hours of touching down. The crackdown comes after the indictment of an airport supervisor on charges he took bribes to let Qatar and other countries park their planes overnight during the gathering. Trump is expected to arrive for a rare hometown visit and a possible stay at Trump Tower, his longtime home he has rarely visited since becoming president. Outside the skyscraper, police plan to set up a series of barriers and security checkpoints. Police said they expect more than 60 demonstrations outside the United Nations, foreign consulates and Trump Tower at various times during the week. The bad news for motorists: Of“cials say all the activity will cause worse gridlock than the traf“c jams during the Thanksgiving Day Parade, the tree-lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center and the New Years Eve celebration in Times Square. Authorities said they hadnt calculated the cost of the security operation. But they said theres been a $20 to $30 million bill for past General Assemblies, and that the federal government covers most of it.Police beef up security for UN gathering AP FILE PHOTOIn this 2017 “le photo, a security team near Trump Tower looks toward high ”oors of nearby buildings shortly before the arrival of President Donald Trump in New York.

He said the data showed, for example, that alcohol consumption tends to drop in countries facing an economic crisis. Poznyak said it was imperative for the governments to put in place measures that can mitigate the harms associated with this increase.Ž The Distilled Spirits Council, which advocates for the industry in the U.S., said in a statement it supports the WHOs goal to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. However, we are concerned that some policy recommendations such as increasing alcohol taxes are misguided and dont effectively address harmful consumption,Ž it said.

So far, this makes a great case for the Roth. But remember that if the $5,000 had gone directly into a traditional IRA, you would have reaped about $1,200 in tax savings each year at a 24 percent tax rate (more, with a higher tax rate). If that sum were also invested, the total difference between the Roth and the regular IRA would become slimmer. Still, the Roth is a compelling proposition for many investors. You may be able to roll over, or convert, your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying taxes on it „ you can generally roll over a 401(k) account into a traditional or Roth IRA when you change jobs, too.

CEO Steve Easterbrook has unlocked more profits by refranchising restaurants in China and elsewhere around the globe, and the stock has soared since he took over in 2015, with shares up 73 percent over the last three years. Refranchising has pushed the percentage of company-owned locations down to 8 percent from 19 percent at the end of 2015, reducing reported revenue but raising profit margins. While many of its peers have complained about a restaurant recession,Ž McDonalds has posted consistently strong comparable sales growth, outpacing its rivals. Customer traffic has been growing, too. The fast-food giant is no slouch in the dividend department, either, having raised its payout annually since 1976. Recently, it yielded 2.5 percent. McDonalds has demonstrated that it can respond to shifting consumer tastes while maintaining „ and even boosting „ its profitability, earnings and direct shareholder returns.

As youve probably noticed, those shares that once traded for $7 have recently been priced above $365 per share. If youd bought $3,000 worth of shares, they would be worth more than $156,000. No one makes all the right investment moves, though our regrettable ones do sting. Align Technology has posted many quarters worth of record sales, and theres still plenty of room for further growth, from international opportunities and from the companys potential to treat more severe kinds of teeth misalignment. You might jump back in if you believe in its future growth „ but, of course, do your own research first. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Align Technology.) Splits, Sales and TaxesQA stock I own split 3-for-1. How do I figure my taxable gain when I sell the shares? „ L.L., Syracuse, New YorkAImagine that you bought 100 shares for $24 (initial cost: $2,400) and they were trading at $30 before the split, for a total value of $3,000. The split gives you three shares for each one you own, so post-split, youll own 300 shares, worth a third as much ($10 each), for a total of ... $3,000. Not much has really changed. For tax purposes, the cost basisŽ of your purchase, which was $24 per share pre-split, is now a third of what it was: $8. But if you sell, your capital gain will be the same as it was pre-split. For example, selling now, your gain would be around $600 „ your $3,000 in sale proceeds (less your brokerage commission cost) minus your $2,400 purchase price (plus your commission cost). When a stock is split, dividends per share, earnings per share and other figures based on share count all get adjusted accordingly. ***QIs buy and holdŽ the best way to invest? „ H.M., onlineAWe prefer to think of it as buying to hold, because while you might aim to hang on forever, you should keep up with your holdings regularly „ hanging on as long as they remain healthy and growing, or selling if their prospects change. Many investors have gotten rich holding shares of great companies for decades, through ups and downs, but you should never just buy a stock and then blindly hold it for years. Superinvestor Warren Buffett has said that his favorite time to sell is neverŽ „ but that doesnt mean he hasnt sold stocks.Want more information about stocks?

You might consider the Roth options for their potentially massive tax breaks. Like other IRAs and 401(k)s, Roth varieties let you accumulate money for retirement and enjoy some tax advantages at the same time. While traditional IRAs and 401(k)s are taxdeferred, permitting you to contribute pre-tax dollars, Roth accounts are designed to be tax-exempt and accept only already-taxed dollars. Imagine that beginning at age 40, you invest $5,000 of your post-tax income into a Roth IRA each year, and earn an 8 percent annual return for 25 years until you retire at 65.

I moved in with him a few months back, and things have been very good between us. I know hes The One, and Id marry him right now if hed ask. My problem is his roommate, Ryan.Ž Mason has hinted about a proposal in the near future, which is something I used to want until recently, when I brought up a concern of mine about his roommate. Ryan has lived with Mason for more than 10 years. Ryan is a grown, healthy man who hasnt had a regular job during the entire 10 years hes lived with my boyfriend. Mason says he depends on Ryans $500 monthly rent payment to keep up with the lifestyle hes used to having. I want to go further in our relationship without a third person, but when I brought it up, I was made out to be the bad guy and accused of not liking Ryan „ which I consider a red ag. Would it be unfair to break up with Mason because hes so fond of „ and dependent upon „ his longtime friend/ roommate and the $500 rent? I dont want to give him an ultimatum. I adore him and wish he was as fond of me as he is his roommate. I want us to depend on each other and experience life like a normal couple without a third party. We both work, and Im starting to resent Ryan, who I feel has no intention of moving on. Should I move out and walk away because I nd it weird? „ BAD GUYŽ GIRLFRIEND DEAR B.G.G.: Before moving out and walking away, have another discussion with Mason. Ask him if he envisions a future with all three of you in it, and what that means. And while youre at it, ask him why he feels he needs Ryans $500 since both of you are working and there should be no reduction in his lifestyle if Ryan moves out. In fact, there should be an improvement if you split all the bills. If Mason still cant agree to part with Ryan, then move out and walk away because hes already taken. DEAR ABBY: My mother has dementia. My sister came to visit. The day after she left to return to Georgia, I noticed a picture was missing from the wall. When I called and asked her about it, she said it was her inheritanceŽ and Mom had given it to her a long time ago.Ž I think it was stealing. Mom has no idea its gone.

A friend will buy the other half. The partnership will buy very expensive old masterpieces, and Ive included the partnership papers for your review. Two other people we know are also investing and have checked out the general partners. What can you tell me, good or bad, about this? „ TS, Oklahoma City Dear TS: Itll be obvious from my answer that I know very little except that this is a leveraged partnership in which the general partners can borrow money using the masterpieces as collateral. Leverage can be dangerous. The big problem with most new Joe Billionaires, those who hopscotch from St. Moritz to Monaco to London, is theyre bored. They have too much money and need to “nd a place where they can be noticed spending it and earn bragging rights. Any billionaire can buy a Lamborghini, a Park Avenue apartment or a monster 300-foot yacht. Thats so plebeian. If your ego really needs stroking and you need to announce your ascendency to the altar of the superrich, your public relations adviser might counsel you to buy a van Gogh or a Warhol for a ghastly sum. Buying something thats as utterly useless as a Pollock or a Rothko is like lighting a Cuban cigar with a $100 bill. Most of the superrich need to light those cigars in public, but there are a few „ such as Joe Jamail, Philippe Kahn, B. Wayne Hughes and James Dyson „ who would light it in private or dont even care for cigars. During the “rst half of this year, Sothebys of”oaded $4.5 billion of art belonging to the superrich. During the second half, stuff by Munch, Picasso, Matisse and Kahlo needs to be sold, and Sothebys is hoping other superrich buyers will be dumb enough to write even bigger checks. In my opinion, theres nothing resembling art in their globs of paint. Real art is Michelangelos Moses, a painting by Rockwell, Daniel Chester Frenchs Lincoln Memorial and The Kiss,Ž by Rodin, certainly not the nightmarish hallucinations of Picasso, Dali and Munch. David Hockneys Paci“c Coast Highway and Santa Monica,Ž which recently sold for an absurd $28.5 million, could have been painted by my daughter when she was 10. And Modiglianis sterile, reclining nude for which some sucker recently paid $157.2 million is less art than fart. In 49 to 71 minutes, some street artists could reproduce a Modigliani nude, and most superrich buyers couldnt tell the difference. In 43 to 69 minutes, a good street artist could reproduce Munchs The ScreamŽ in such a way that, after proper baking and caking, an experienced curator would have trouble telling the difference. Art prices are a scam because there are no parameters for determining value. And two art limited partnerships with which Im familiar are in trouble. Several years ago, both LPs took in respectable millions in capital. But they leveraged their portfolios using previously purchased pieces as collateral. They borrowed heavily to purchase other pieces considered investmentqualityŽ (whatever that means). But those pieces, purchased a few years back, havent risen much in price, and several banks are demanding that their overdue loans be repaid. This has forced the two partnerships to quietly discharge some of their debt in exchange for some pieces in their portfolios. The lawyers are the only folks making money here. If you can afford the loss and know the risks, I dont mind saying, Have at it.Ž Your investment would allow you to hobnob with the glitterati, smoke a joint with Andreas Gursky, score An artful partnership „ is it a scam or Investment?some heroin with Sting and do some quaaludes with Madonna. You might even make a pro“t if, in a few years, the general partners could “nd other enthusiastic suckers willing to pay more than $4.5 million for McCarthys Tomato HeadŽ or $7 million Fischers lamp and bear. Cheese and crackers got all muddy, what crap. Ive given you the phone number of an attorney who has a magic Rolodex and knows all about this stuff. I dont know the general partners of the LP youre considering. However, this lawyer does. Please ring him. He is expecting your call and wont charge you a centime for your call.

He has been stymied at every turn. The Florida landscaping worker took the bold step of going to a government of“ce to submit “ngerprints and other documents required for immigrants to get their children out of government custody „ and now that information is being shared with deportation agents. He was then told that the woman he rents a room from would also need to submit “ngerprints, something she refused to do. He then sought out friends who are here legally to help him out, to no avail. I dont know what to do,Ž said Tabora, an immigrant from Honduras who has lived more than a decade in the shadows without being detected. My daughter is desperate, crying. She wants to get out of there.Ž The drama of parents being separated from their children at the border dominated the headlines this year, but thousands of immigrant families are experiencing a similar frustration: the increasing hurdles they must surmount to take custody of sons, daughters and relatives who crossed the border on their own. The Trump administration has imposed more stringent rules and vetting for family members to get these children back as part of an across-the-board hardening of immigration policy. As a result, family members are struggling to comply with the new requirement, keeping children in detention longer and helping the number of migrant kids in government custody soar to the highest levels ever. Federal of“cials insist the policies are about ensuring the safety of children. More than 12,000 children are now in government shelters, compared with 2,400 in May 2017. The average length that children spend in detention has increased from 40 days in “scal year 2016 to 59 in “scal year 2018, according to federal data. The requirements include the submission of “ngerprints by all adults in the household where a migrant child will live. These sponsors „ the term the U.S. uses for adults who take custody of immigrant children „ are also subject to more background checks, proofs of income and home visits, lawyers say. And this information will now be shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement „ something that did not occur in the past. ICE said this week that the agency has arrested 41 sponsors since the agencies started sharing information in June. Lawyers and advocates say that change has had a chilling effect because many family members live in the country illegally and have been deterred from claiming relatives for fear they will be deported. They are saying: We are going after the people trying to take care of them (children),Ž said Jen Podkul, director of policy at Kids in Need of Defense. The government has long required families to go through some vetting to serve as sponsors. The issue has become more prevalent in the last “ve years when tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras started coming across the border. Since October 2014, the federal government has placed more than 150,000 unaccompanied minors with parents or other adult sponsors who are expected to care for the children and help them attend school while they seek legal status in immigration court. Under Trump, the rules have been toughened in what the administration says are necessary steps to keep children from ending up in the homes of people with criminal records and other issues that could endanger kids. If somebody is unwilling to claim their child from custody because theyre concerned about their own immigration status, I think that de facto calls into question whether theyre an adequate sponsor and whether we should be releasing the child to that person,Ž Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, said when the policy was announced in May. The issue of sharing information with ICE arises because children and adult immigrants are handled by separate federal government agencies. Children are in the custody of the Health and Human Services Departments Of“ce of Refugee Resettlement, while adults are handled by ICE.Parents face tougher rules to get immigrant children back AP PHOTOIn this Friday, Aug. 3, photo, Nahun Eduardo Puerto Pineda, then 8, holding envelope, from Honduras, poses for a photo with his mother, Eilyn Carbajal, and two siblings after being reunited with them at the Cayuga Center, in New York.

ROBERTSON, MARTHA WAGGONER and ALAN SUDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSBLADENBORO, N.C. „ Travel remained dangerous Saturday in southeastern North Carolina, where the governor warned of treacherousŽ ”oodwaters more than a week after Hurricane Florence made landfall, and urged residents to stay alert for ”ood warnings and evacuation orders. Gov. Roy Cooper said nine of the states river gauges are at major ”ood stage and four others are at moderate stage, while parts of Interstates 95 and 40 will remain underwater for another week or more. Emergency management of“cials said residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed will begin moving into hotel rooms next week. Hurricane Florence has deeply wounded our state, wounds that will not fade soon as the ”ood waters “nally recede,Ž Cooper said. South Carolina also has ordered more evacuations as rivers continue to rise in the aftermath of a storm that has claimed at least 43 lives since slamming into the coast more than a week ago. The small farming community of Nichols, South Carolina, about 40 miles from the coast, was completely inundated by water, Mayor Lawson Batter said Saturday. He called the situation worse than Matthew,Ž the 2016 hurricane that destroyed almost 90 percent of the towns 261 homes. Battle said ”ooding from Florence has wiped out the 150 or so homes rebuilt afterward. Its just a mess,Ž said Battle, who was awaiting a visit from Gov. Henry McMaster. We will try everything we can to come back ... but we need to have federal and state help.Ž Benetta White and David Lloyd were among 100 people rescued with helicopters, boats and high-wheeled military vehicles during a six-hour operation in southeastern North Carolinas Bladen County that lasted into Friday morning „ their second evacuation in a week. White and Lloyd, who live in the North Carolina town of Kelly, were given little time Thursday night to evacuate when the Cape Fear River came rushing onto their property. By the time they loaded their van, they had to slog through waist-high, foul-smelling water to get to a neighbors pickup. From there, they went to the towns “re department and were taken by an Army truck to a shelter at a Bladen County high school. We had to evacuate again, all over again, and got trapped in a bunch of water and almost lost our lives,Ž said White. In Wilmington, where Hurricane Florence made landfall and which had been cut off by ”oodwaters, of“cials said theyd identi“ed three safe routes into town. They encouraged people to avoid travel in areas where the risk of ”ooding remains. North Carolina Emergency Management Director Michael Sprayberry said Saturday that eastern counties continue to see major ”ooding, including areas along the Black, Lumber, Neuse and Cape Fear rivers. The Cape Fear river is expected to crest Sunday and remain at ”ood stage through early next week. He said residents who register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency can begin moving into hotels Monday. The program initially will be open to residents in nine counties, then will be expanded. A FEMA coordinator said about 69,000 people from North Carolina already have registered for assistance. North Carolina environmental of“cials said theyre closely monitoring two sites where Florences ”oodwaters have inundated coal ash sites The state is using drones to get photos and video of a dam breach at the L.V. Sutton Power Station in Wilmington, where gray muck has been seen ”owing into the Cape Fear River, and at the H.F. Lee Power Plant near Goldsboro, said Michael Regan, secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. He said Saturday that the video and photos show sand and potential coal ashŽ leaving the Sutton site, and the DEQ will put people on the ground when it is safe. He said that DEQ staff has seen that coal ash left the basin and entered ”ood waters at the H.F. Lee plant, and is trying to determine how much of that, if anyŽ has entered into the Neuse River. In Conway, South Carolina, water from the Waccamaw river began ”owing into a Santee Cooper ash pond. The company said in a statement that the overtopping occurred Saturday morning, but no signi“cant environmental impact was expected because nearly all of the ash had been excavated from the pond.Travel still dangerous in flooded areas of North Carolina AP PHOTOA swift recuse boat motors through ”oodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in Nichols, S.C., Friday.

Francois had his seventh career 300-yard day, completing 23 of 31 passes. The junior had a 78-yard touchdown pass to Tamorrion Terry and an 8-yard TD pass to Jacques Patrick. Despite using a fourth different starting lineup on the offensive line, the Seminoles generated a season-high 473 yards against the Huskies. Florida State was at its best in the first half, generating four scoring drives as the Seminoles took a 20-7 lead. The Seminoles (2-2) gave coach Willie Taggart his first win over an FBS opponent in 2018. Florida States other win came against Samford on Sept. 8.

CJ Worton caught a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes from James Morgan for FIU (2-2), which outscored Miami 17-0 and gained 139 of its 187 yards in the “nal 15 minutes. Perry came in on Miamis third series, replacing starter Malik Rosier after two scoreless possessions. He completed his “rst 10 passes, some into very tight windows, “nished 17 of 25 for 224 yards with the three scores and one interception „ and his performance means the Hurricanes will have a decision to make this week on a starter. By JOHN ZENORAP SPORTS WRITERTUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa passed for 387 yards and four touchdowns and ran for another score to lead No. 1 Alabama to a 45-23 rout of No. 22 Texas A&M on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) easily passed the “rst test against a ranked team. Kellen Mond and the Aggies (2-2, 0-1) couldnt put up nearly the “ght they had in a 28-26 loss to No. 3 Clemson. Tagovailoa completed 22 of 30 passes before leaving after Henry Ruggs III took a shuttle pass 57 yards for a score late in the third. His “rst attempt went for a 30yard touchdown to a diving DeVonta Smith, and he hit tight end Hale Hentges for two more scores. Damien Harris didnt get many touches but had a 35-yard run and a 52-yard catch. We were fortunate that we made a lot of big plays on offense,Ž Tide coach Nick Saban said. We really threw the ball effectively and scored a lot of points, but we really didnt control the game. We didnt control the line of scrimmage. We struggled to run the ball offensively.Ž Mond completed 16 of 33 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown but was intercepted twice, including on his “rst throw. He collected 98 yards rushing despite getting sacked seven times. The SECs top rusher, Trayveon Williams, found little room to run. He gained 31 yards on eight carries.

Tellez singled in the second, hit a two-run homer in the fourth, and added an insurance run with an RBI double in the eighth. Tommy Pham and Jesus Sucre hit solo home runs for the Rays, who began the day 6 1-2 games behind Oakland in the race for the second AL wild card. Tampa Bay has eight games remaining. Toronto has won two of the “rst three of this fourgame set, rallying with a seven-run ninth inning in Thursdays 9-8 win. The Blue Jays are 5-10 against the Rays this season. Making his “fth major league start, Pannone (41) allowed two runs and six hits. He walked three and struck out “ve. After Pham opened the scoring in the third with his 20th home run, Pannone walked the bases loaded but escaped further damage by striking out Willy Adames. The Blue Jays responded with a three-run fourth against Tyler Glasnow (2-7). Justin Smoak drew a leadoff walk and Tellez hit a one-out homer, his third. One out later, Kevin Pillar singled and scored on Reese McGuires double. Pannone gave up a two-out homer to Sucre in the seventh and left after the next batter, Mallex Smith, reached on an in“eld single. Ryan Tepera came on and walked Pham, then struck out Matt Duffy to end the threat. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Ken Giles “nished for his 24th save in 24 opportunities.

MLB: Toronto 5, Tampa Bay 2 By DOUG FEINBERGAP BASKETBALL WRITERTENERIFE, Spain „ U.S. coach Dawn Staley knows her team is a work in progress. With a lack of training time as a group, each game is an opportunity to improve chemistry on the court. The opener against Senegal didnt start out well, with the Americans trailing Senegal by eight points before wearing the African nation down in an 87-67 victory on Saturday in the FIBA Womens Basketball World Cup. Weve had more actual games then weve had practices,Ž Staley said. Thats what you saw on the floor. Sometimes didnt look as clean as wed like it to be.Ž Elena Delle Donne scored 19 points and Nneka Ogwumike added 16 to lead the U.S. The two teams played six days ago and the Americans cruised to a 51-point victory. For the first 15 minutes in this one, Senegal was the more aggressive team. The African nation took a 10-2 lead early on much to the delight of fans who were singing and waving the countrys flag proudly. When the U.S. took a 15-12 advantage, Senegal answered with five straight points to take the lead again. The game was tied at 25 midway through the second quarter before the U.S. started to assert its dominance. The Americans (1-0) closed the half with a 20-6 run keyed by Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi to take a 14-point lead at the break. Senegal tried to hang around in the third quarter and only lost the period by three points, but it could get no closer than 15 in the final 10 minutes, when the U.S. pulled away. Senegal played a great game, came out super strong and came out super aggressive, we had to play our way through the game,Ž Delle Donne said. Like Dawn said, we have a lot of depth and the game is 40 minutes long. Were still getting used to playing together. Weve only had a couple days. We need to continue to get better.Ž The victory was the Americans 17th in a row in the tournament and 42nd in the past 43 games in the World Cup. The only blemish over the past 20 years was a loss to Russia in the semifinals of the 2006 World Cup. Bird has been a part of most of those wins. She is playing a U.S. record fifth World Cup. She has won three gold medals and could become the first player ever to win four. Bird was still wearing a mask to cover her face after breaking her nose in the WNBA playoffs. Bird and Seattle Storm teammates Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd showed up earlier this week after winning the WNBA championship. The Americans have had the entire team together for only a few days, and building continuity on the court will be key during pool play. In the past, the Americans have had a consistent core of players. This team has six players who got their first World Cup experience: Delle Donne, Loyd, Layshia Clarendon, Morgan Tuck, Aja Wilson and Kelsey Plum. Delle Donne played for the U.S. in the 2016 Olympics but missed the 2014 world championship because of a thumb injury. She suffered a bone bruise in the WNBA playoffs and is still recovering. Khairy Sarr Oumoul scored 18 points for Senegal (0-1), which fell to 0-5 against the U.S. in the World Cup all-time. The U.S. won the first four meetings by an average of nearly 53 points. This is a good way to boost our confidence. We can use it as a motivation,Ž Senegal coach Cheikh Sarr said.OTHER SCORESChina defeated Latvia 64-61 in the other game in the same pool as the U.S. France beat South Korea 89-58; Australia topped Nigeria 86-68; Turkey routed Argentina 63-37 and Canada beat Greece 81-50.

Winning. Woods played the most dynamic golf he has all year Saturday with six birdies in his opening seven holes to build a “ve-shot lead. He cooled from there with a few mistakes and had to settle for a 5-under 65 and a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in the Tour Championship. He has the 54-hole lead for the “rst time since his last victory in 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational. He has never lost an of“cial tournament when leading by more than two shots going into the “nal round, and his closing record with the lead is 42-2 on the PGA Tour. Woods has never been in better position to show hes all the way back from four back surgeries that once made him fear he might never play again. Ive gone through a lot this year to get myself to this point, and understanding and “ghting my way through it,Ž Woods said. Im certainly much more equipped than I was in March because of what Ive gone through.Ž Wood was at 12-under 198 and will be paired for the “rst time in “nal group with McIlroy on the PGA Tour. McIlroy birdied two of his last three holes for a 66. Its obviously exciting for the golf tournament. Its exciting for golf in general that hes up there,Ž McIlroy said. But for me, all I can do is concentrate on myself. The game is hard enough without looking at other people. Go out there, take care of my business, and hopefully thats good enough.Ž Rose started the third round tied with Woods, but not for long. Rose opened with two straight bogeys before battling back, but the worlds No. 1 player already was four shots behind after four holes. He narrowed the gap with a birdie on the 16th as Woods had to scramble for bogey, a two-shot swing. In some ways, it felt like a Sunday just with the energy,Ž Rose said after a 68. But I knew that it was halfway through a Saturday. Just wanted to sort of chisel a few back and give myself a chance going into tomorrow.ŽTiger Woods with 3-shot lead, now just 1 round away from winning GOLF: PGA Championship


The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 SP Page 3 By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTNORTH PORT … The North Port High School Cross-Country Invitational has grown to become one of the biggest cross-country meets in the state, with the best runners and programs making the trek to test themselves on one of the fastest tracks around. And the track did not disappoint as local programs tested themselves against the very best. They didnt disappoint, neither. The Charlotte High School girls showed they have an elite program themselves, while several individuals placed high in the large and small school divisions. The Tarpons placed eighth out of 23 teams in the elite division as Victoria Simeone and Alexa Roughton each came home .1 seconds apart with times of 20:43, good for 37th and 38th place, respectively. The race went so fast, the next thing I knew I was finishing,Ž Roughton said. Its really awesome to race against the best of the best because it makes us more confident when we can beat those competitive teams.Ž I was hoping for a top five, but there are a lot of good teams here, probably the best competition we have had. Thats why I love these meets because we can stack ourselves up against that competition,Ž Charlotte coach Chris Robishaw said. Because of the size of the event, boys and girls races were divided into groups of elite, large school and small school. Sarasota won the girls team elite, with Parker Valby of East Lake winning the race. Belen Jesuit was the boys elite team winner, with Benjamin Hartvigsen of Sarasota the race winner. No local teams raced. In the girls large school division, North Ports girls ran to a third place finish behind the running of Alexis Smith, who placed third with a 22:01.4 time despite struggling in the middle part of the race. I started strong. I was in second place, but I died out in the second mile because I went out way too fast. The adrenaline was pumping and it got to my head,Ž Smith said. I recovered at the stretch and got passed for second at the end.Ž In the boys division, the host team placed fourth, led by Joseph Smith, who finished eighth, with a time of 17:48.5. Charlotte finished 14th, with Brendan True finishing 64th with a 19:57.5, the only Tarpon to break 20 minutes. Bloomingdale was the top girls team, while Belen Jesuit was the top boys large school. Elizabeth Wetmore of Evangelical Christian won the girls race, while Er nesto Velasquez of Chamberlain winning the boys. In the small school division, Lemon Bay freshman Katelyn Ziarnicki placed second in the girls race with a 21:35.3, which had no impact on the team standings, since Lemon Bay only had four runners and you need five to qualify. I started in the top 10 and picked it up in the second mile, and was leading for a while before she passed me at the end,Ž Ziarnicki said of race winner Maria Shaw of Out of Door Academy, the team winner. Imagine finished sixth as a team, led by eighth-grader Makayla Rassbach, who was 18th with a 23:54.3. It was really hot and I felt like I was dying. The course was good. It would have been faster if it werent for the heat,Ž Rassbach said, who was running a little later in the morning than usual. In the boys division, Lemon Bay finished ninth as a team, with Thomas Blem earning 12th place with an 18:52.9 time. Imagine was 12th out of 15 teams. Nick Renaud was the top Shark, placing 17th with a 19:16.9 time.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) „ Feleipe Franks threw touchdown passes to three different receivers and ran for a fourth score Saturday as Florida capitalized on six Tennessee turnovers in a 47-21 rout of the Volunteers. Four of Tennessees turnovers led to 24 points for Florida. Tennessee also gave up a safety and cost itself a touchdown by fumbling a ball out of the end zone for a touchback. Florida (3-1, 1-1 SEC) beat Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) for the 13th time in the last 14 seasons and posted its highest point total ever at Neyland Stadium. The Gators had won 43-30 at Tennessee in 1984. Tennessee has lost its last nine games against Power Five opponents since beating Georgia Tech in overtime to open the 2017 season. Franks went 9 of 18 for 172 yards with touchdown passes to R.J. Raymond, Freddie Swain and Tyrie Cleveland, whose 63-yard Hail Mary reception beat Tennessee last year.Old Dominion 49, No. 13 Va. Tech 35NORFOLK, Va. (AP) „ Blake LaRussa came off the bench to throw for 495 yards and four touchdowns to lead Old Dominion to a 49-35 upset of No. 13 Virginia Tech on Saturday in the Hokies first game at the cross-state school that restarted its football program in 2009. LaRussa entered on ODUs second series and completed 30 of 49 and ran for a score to lead the 28 1/2-point underdog Monarchs (1-3) to a stunning win over the Hokies (2-1) from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Jeremy Coxs 40-yard touchdown run with 1:34 remaining sealed the biggest win in program history. After the game, the ODU faithful stormed the field.No. 4 Ohio State 42, Tulane 6COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Dwayne Haskins Jr. threw for 304 yards and five touchdowns in the first half and Ohio State routed Tulane in coach Urban Meyers return to the sideline following a three-game suspension. Haskins was nearly flawless, completing his first nine passes on the way to a 21-for-24 effort before giving way to backup Tate Martell in the second half as the No. 4 Buckeyes (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) backed off. Meyer was back with his team after serving a suspension for his mismanagement of former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other questionable behavior while working under Meyer at Florida and Ohio State. Meyer missed the blowouts of Oregon State and Rutgers, then sat in front of his TV nervously at home as the Buckeyes pulled away from TCU in the second half last week to win 40-28.No. 8 Notre Dame 56, Wake Forest 27WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) „ Ian Book rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two more for Notre Dame. Book replaced Brandon Wimbush in the starting lineup and was 25 of 34 for 325 yards with touchdown passes covering 3 yards to Brock Wright and 7 yards to Chase Claypool, along with three short scoring runs. Book helped the Fighting Irish (4-0) more than double their season high for scoring and roll up a season-best 566 total yards. Jafar Armstrong had touchdown runs of 1 and 30 yards, and Tony Jones Jr. added a short scoring run for the Fighting Irish. Wake Forest (2-2) has lost two straight.Texas 31, No. 17 Tcu 16AUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ Sam Ehlinger passed for two touchdowns and ran for a score, all in the second half, and Texas ended a four-game losing streak to TCU in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Texas (3-1) had been outscored 153-33 the last four years by TCU and trailed 16-10 before the defense forced three turnovers by quarterback Shawn Robinson in the third quarter. A fumble recovery set up a diving touchdown catch by Collin Johnson and an interception return by freshman safety Caden Sterns to the TCU 2 set up Ehlingers scoring run one play later. Ehlingers 38-yard touchdown strike to LilJordan Humphrey with 3:18 left put the game away. The victory gives Texas its “rst three-game win streak since 2014. The Longhorns also have their “rst back-to-back wins over ranked opponents since winning three in a row in 2008, a run that vaulted Texas to No. 1 that season.No. 19 Michigan 56, Nebraska 10ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) „ Karan Higdon ran for 136 yards and a touchdown in the “rst half for Michigan, and Nebraska stumbled to its worst start since 1945. The Wolverines (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) led 20-0 after the “rst quarter and 39-0 at halftime. The Cornhuskers (0-3, 0-1) have lost seven in a row for the “rst time since 1957. Michigan rested Higdon in the second half. Quarterback Shea Patterson played only the “rst series of the second half, giving Dylan McCaffrey an extended opportunity to play. Patterson was 15 of 22 for 120 yards with a 5-yard TD pass to Zach Gentry midway through the second quarter that put the Wolverines ahead 30-0. Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez was 7 of 15 for 22 yards with an interception and he lost 12 yards rushing.Kentuckty 28, No. 14 Mississippi St. 7LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) „ Benny Snell Jr. rushed for four touchdowns to break a Kentucky career record, including two in the fourth quarter, and the Wildcats held No. 14 Mississippi State to 56 yards rushing for a 28-7 upset Saturday night. After Tyrell Ajians 35-yard interception return to the Bulldogs 36, Snell broke left and down the left sideline for his third score with 8 minutes remaining to break Randall Cobbs previous mark of 37 total touchdowns. The junior wasnt done and added a 23yard TD run on the next possession for 21-point cushion the Wildcats (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) preserved for their second win over a ranked school this month. Kentucky beat then-No. 25 Florida two weeks ago to break a 31-game losing streak to the Gators. yards (93) in the “rst half for the Seminoles.THE TAKEAWAYNorthern Illinois: The Huskies had one of the nations worst offenses coming into Saturday and needed 19 minutes to earn their initial “rst down. NIU scored its “rst-half touchdown with the bene“t of a short “eld, starting at Florida States 23 after the Huskies recovered a fumble. Florida State: The Seminoles had 19 “rst downs in three quarters and were ef“cient, relative to the previous three games, despite losing three fumbles.

The Hurricanes scored on four of their “nal “ve drives of the “rst half and took a 24-0 lead into halftime. FIU tied a school record with 63 points last week in a win over UMass. The Panthers managed only 17 rushing yards on 24 carries this week. Miami had 20 of the games “rst 21 “rst downs and led the total-yards battle 397-10 at one point. The Hurricanes improved to 3-0 against their neighbors, winning those games by a combined 89-26. They played a really good football game today and they deserved the victory,Ž FIU coach Butch Davis said. I was proud of our kids from the standpoint of continuing to “ght and compete until the last whistle was blown.ŽMIAMIFROM PAGE 1 the Tide its “rst test of the season.

The Sun | Sunday, September 23, 2018 SP Page 7By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESDefensive tackle Vita Vea made it through practice this week, his “rst since straining his left calf muscle July 29. But coach Dirk Koetter was pretty non-committal about how much, or if, Vea will play Monday night against the Steelers. When youve been out for seven weeks, conditioning indoors is different than playing football outdoors when youve got bodies around your legs,Ž Koetter said. Theres no lack of want to or anything like that. Weve got to be reasonable with how much time we give him. Well see.Ž Vea, the Bucs “rst round pick from Washington, was listed at 347 pounds when training camp began. Koetter said he did a great job with his weight and actually lost 15 pounds during his rehab. They got a bunch of different ways guys can get cardio with a boot on,Ž Koetter said. It starts off on a bike. It goes to the treadmill in the water. Theyve got this ultra-G machine. They got a lot of different things. But cardio and football are not the same thing. We could all go over to Golds Gym and see some good cardio people.Ž The Bucs are expected Monday to be without defensive tackle Beau Allen, who has not practiced this week due to a foot injury he suffered in last Sundays win over the Eagles. Thats why Vea would be a welcome addition this week and defensive coordinator Mike Smith has indicated they could utilize him in a rotation. But it sounds like it may be a game-time decision.Bucs have to be reasonable, about their plan to play defensive tackle Vita Vea TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOBucs defensive tackle Vita Vea smiles while watching teammates run through drills during practice in July in Tampa. By BARRY WILNERAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERThere have been some classic games between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins. While Sundays meeting doesnt carry the weight of a playoff contest between two powers, it certainly brings plenty of intrigue. Such as: Are the Dolphins (2-0) really good, and are the Raiders (0-2) pretty bad? The answers will come over the next few weeks, but this could be a strong indicator of where each team is headed in 2018. Miami has been winning the field position battle, is tied for the NFL lead with five interceptions „ the Dolphins had nine all last year „ and has allowed only seven points in four red-zone possessions by opponents. Healthy QB Ryan Tannehill is 9-1 in his past 10 starts; he missed the 2017 season with a knee injury. Meanwhile, the Raiders are allowing 5.7 yards per rush, worst in the league. They are tied for last with only one takeaway and have all of two sacks. Did someone say they miss Khalil Mack? Yet the key could be when Oakland has the ball and whether it can generate anything against a defense that plays most everybody who suits up. The addition of (DE Robert) Quinn is huge,Ž says Raiders coach Jon Gruden, whose return to the sideline had Raiders fans all giddy before the Mack trade and the two defeats. He has given them supreme effort opposite Cameron Wake. And they have a very good unit inside that can generate pressure as well. Its a combination of new players, new energy and the scheme. Its fun to watch them.Ž Maybe not for Derek Carr, the quarterback who has to face them. The weekend began Thursday night with Clevelands first win in 635 days, a 21-17 home victory over the New York Jets. The No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield replaced injured starter Tyrod Taylor and sparked the Browns (1-1-1) who got two 1-yard touchdown runs from Carlos Hyde in their first win since Dec. 24, 2016. And so ends Clevelands 19game winless streak, the NFLs second-longest since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Jets are 1-2.Indianapolis (1-1) at Philadelphia (1-1)One of several games with tasty matchups. The Super Bowl champions get back Carson Wentz, whose major knee injury last December led to Nick Foles taking over at quarterback „ and winning the title. Wentz is healthy, which means hell play. Its been a long time coming,Ž Wentz says. Its been quite the grind of an offseason. Theres a lot of excitement, a lot of built-up almost anxiety over when it was going to be.Ž It will be against the offensive coordinator, Frank Reich, who had a big role in Wentzs quick development. Reich now coaches the Colts, who have their own star QB back from injury, Andrew Luck. Luck has thrown a TD pass in 25 consecutive games, the leagues longest active streak. The Colts are one win from 300 since moving to Indianapolis in 1984.New England (1-1) at Detroit (0-2)Matt Patricia spent 14 seasons working for Bill Belichick in New England. Rarely did he deal with what has gone on the past two weeks with the Lions. They have looked inept at times, Matthew Stafford has little protection and has thrown a leaguehigh five picks. Detroit is 30th in rushing defense, which must make defensive guru Patricia cringe. Belichick is 14-8 against former assistants. New England is 45-6 after losing a game since 2003 and didnt lose two straight in 2016 or 2017. It fell at Jacksonville last Sunday.Denver (2-0) at Baltimore (1-1)One more spicy matchup, this one on the defensive side. Led by Von Miller the Broncos seem to have rekindled the Orange Crush. He leads the NFL with four sacks, a rate that would give him a record 32. Dont bet against him. Denver has allowed only “ve third-down conversions in 22 tries, the best rate (22.7 percent) in the NFL. The Ravens rank second on D, no surprise there. But theyll likely be missing three-time Pro Bowl LB C.J. Mosley (knee).New Orleans (1-1) at Atlanta (1-1)In perhaps the toughest division, both of these 2017 playoff teams have been way too inconsistent so far. The Saints opened with two home games, losing to Tampa Bay and getting lucky to beat Cleveland. The defense was awful in the opener, the offense struggled last week. Still, they have Drew Brees, looking for his fourth straight road game with a passer rating over 100. WR Michael Thomas has 28 catches, an NFL record for the “rst two games of a season. Atlantas up-and-down nature has been partly caused by injuries, particularly on defense. Thats never a good way to approach a matchup with Brees.New York Giants (0-2) at Houston (0-2)The most watchable thing here „ if you like defenses creaming quarterbacks „ is whether Eli Manning or Deshaun Watson can escape the rush. Watson, who has terri“c agility, already has gone down seven times, and hes not come close to the sensational showings he made as a rookie before tearing up his knee. Even worse, Manning has been sacked eight times and there havent been a handful of pass plays on which he didnt feel pressure. Now, he gets to see J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney close up, with a new center, John Greco, to boot.Dallas (1-1) at Seattle (0-2)More sack time coming. In years past, Seattles defense would be knocking down quarterbacks. This version of the Seahawks has three sacks as the unit is rebuilt. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson has gone down 12 times, and considering his escapability, thats scary in Seattle. Dallas barely let Manning breathe last week, has nine sacks from eight players and faces possibly a bigger sieve of a blocking unit this week.Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) at Los Angeles Rams (2-0)Remember when LA had no teams? Now, both “gure to be contenders in their divisions. Indeed, the Rams have the most talent of any roster and are off to a powerful start. This could be a shootout. Since Week 11 of last season, the Chargers are tops in offense, averaging 436.9 yards per game. Philip Rivers has thrown three or more TD passes and has a passer rating over 100 in three straight regular-season games, and has plenty of weapons. So does Rams QB Jared Goff, particularly 2017 Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley. The fourth-year RB is off to another brilliant start. Its the “rst meeting between two Los Angeles NFL teams since Nov. 13, 1994, when the Raiders defeated the Rams 20-17.Cincinnati (2-0) at Carolina (1-1)Wait, the Bengals are unbeaten? Heres a real chance to prove they are legit. Cincinnati can get after the passer and will force Cam Newton to be creative. The Bengals are well rested „ they beat Baltimore on a Thursday night in Week 2 „ and DT Geno Atkins has looked super, getting three sacks and plenty of pressures. But second-year running back Joe Mixon is sidelined, and Carolina has its own dangerous RB from the 2017 draft in Christian McCaffrey. He tied WR Steve Smiths franchise record with 14 receptions vs. the Falcons. Carolina has won six straight at home.Tennessee (1-1) at Jacksonville (2-0)Jacksonville being 2-0 is no shock and the Jaguars could seize early control of the AFC South here. They showed plenty of moxie in beating New England last Sunday and hope to have top RB Leonard Fournette healthy. They havent been 3-0 in 14 years. Even though the Jags won the division in 2017, they were swept by Tennessee, helping the Titans earn a wild card. Tennessee has been very protective of its passer, whether Marcus Mariota or former Jaguar Blaine Gabbert; opponents have one sack. Getting Mariota back from an elbow injury is critical.San Francisco (1-1) at Kansas City (2-0)Its not that the Chiefs have won two straight, its how they did it. First-time starter Patrick Mahomes came out “ring and hasnt let up. He has an NFL-record 10 TD passes through the “rst two games and has not thrown an interception. Mahomes had six TD passes at Pittsburgh, making him the youngest player in NFL history to accomplish that. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins all have 100-yard receiving games this season. San Francisco ranks 25th in pass defense and might not have the talent to get in a scoring free-for-all.Buffalo (0-2) at Minnesota (1-0-1)The betting line was so high, above 16 points all week, that it sent fans and bettors scrambling for precedent. Buffalo once was an even bigger underdog at 17 points against Miami in 1985. The Dolphins won 28-0. And 80 teams have been 16-point or more underdogs. Five of those actually won. For the Bills to even come close, they need to give raw rookie QB Josh Allen time to throw, and “nd a run defense. Minnesota comes off a depressing 29-29 tie at Green Bay in which the Vikings made a solid comeback, but then couldnt kick the ball straight enough to win. Daniel Carson is gone, replaced by veteran Dan Bailey, who was sensational with Dallas before getting hurt.Green Bay (1-0-1) at Washington (1-1)A gimpy Aaron Rodgers remains a prime threat, and he has loads of talent to catch the ball in Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and tight end Jimmy Graham. The pass defense is far too charitable, but rookie CB Josh Jackson recovered a blocked punt for a TD vs. Minnesota. Alex Smith, the top overall draft pick in 2005 when Rodgers went 24th, now is in Washington. He has a defense ranked No. 1 against the pass, so an aerial contest with A-Rod might not develop.Pittsburgh (0-1-1) at Tampa Bay (2-0), Monday nightWith the Bucs on a roll and Ryan Fitzpatrick demolishing defenses, Pittsburgh could be in trouble. The Steelers have displayed little tackling skill and give up lots of big plays. They rank 30th against the run, a very un-Curtain number. Their offense hasnt been troubled much by star RB LeVeon Bells holdout thanks to James Conner. This also has the makings of a high-scoring showcase, especially if Ben Roethlisberger can limit his teams turnovers.Chicago (1-1) at Arizona (0-2)The Cardinals and Bears are the only founding members of the NFL still in existence. While Chicago seems to have found its way with Mack and a defense that leads the league with 10 sacks, Arizona is foundering. The Cardinals didnt cross mid“eld vs. the Rams until the next-to-last play. Sam Bradford has not thrown a TD pass, has been intercepted twice and has a 55.6 passer rating.Are Raiders that bad? Are Dolphins that good?

The camp provided not only a platform for the participants to improve their knowledge about the sport of basketball, but through Vertical Vision, they learned about the Gospel and the teachings of Christ. Its incredible what Gods doing with it,Ž said Taylor. The Chinese people love the camp so much. Theyre very appreciative when someone from another country comes to teach them something, especially something they dont know much about. Theyre also trying to understand more about the game of basketball, and how to do things the right way.ŽChinese ConnectionThe camp was arranged through an underground church in South China, said Taylor. The process wouldnt have been possible if Taylor didnt have some type of connection in the area, as the church was able to get the word out within the community. The church also has an underground school, providing an opportunity for the Chinese to learn English. The school helps prepare students who may be interested in furthering their education in the United States, exposing them to western culture as well as giving them a chance to have a better command of the English language, said Taylor. We had a lot of kids from the city, the place where we conducted the camp,Ž said Taylor. We had a lot of the kids who were involved with the school.ŽFuture endeavorsThe composition of the camp being conducted in December, should include more kids from the inner city, allowing Vertical Vision an opportunity to reach a different dynamic, said Taylor. I think were going to have more numbers because the parents love the camp so much,Ž said Taylor. They asked me if I could stay another week to run another camp. Theyre loving it (the camp) so much. It was pretty spectacular to see the response. My guy has a whole plan, and hopefully this summer, well be doing almost like a Vertical Vision tour in China, where well be able to run a camp in Hong Kong, a city up north, one with an older feel, and also in the same city where we just ran the camp.Ž Taylor was accompanied to China, by his younger sister Hannah Taylor, who helped with the younger kids in the camp. Hannah enjoyed the experience so much, she decided to stay in China, accepting a teaching position, where she serves as an English instructor, and will help her older brother run the camps, when he returns in July.A lasting impactVertical Visions in”uence and impact were palpable, and the camps participants were grateful for the opportunity. One child in particular made an indelible impression on Taylor, a boy who was about 12-years-old came up to him during the last session of the camp, to express his gratitude in an insightful manner that belied his young age, creating a sense of awareness and understanding that resonates with Taylor, the new head basketball coach at Community Christian School. They dont say coach, they say teacher,Ž said Taylor. He said, I have a question. Do the children in America understand? and I was like, Understand what? Understand how blessed they are to have the opportunities in America. That stunned me, and shocked me in a lot of ways, just because in America, were so blessed. We take for granted the things weve had since we were born. We dont understand how valuable they are. In China, seeing kids wanting to learn English so much, and then to come up to me, and have him say, Do people in America understand how blessed they truly are? It was pretty powerful to me. Its not like this kid has ever been in America. Its not like this Chinese child has interacted with many Americans in his life. But he just knew being in America is a blessing. And as an American, you have an opportunity to do what you love. I think in China, a persons passion can be put to the side. In America, its such a blessing to be able to pursue your passion every day. Vertical Vision will be conducting a camp on Oct. 20 at First Alliance Church in Port Charlotte.
