NEWS WIRE AVON PARK „ The female shooter ran through the hallways and classrooms of Avon Park High School, shooting people Saturday, before “nally being killed by a Highlands County deputy. In all, seven high school faculty members and students lost their lives, one deputy was killed and six faculty members and students and a deputy were wounded. Thankfully, it was only a scenario conducted to help improve response should an active shooter come on one of the Highlands County school campuses. Undersheriff Mike Brown said that in the coming weeks law enforcement and school employees will be evaluating what happened and developing a new plan on how to deal with the active shooter situation. Its time to be challenging conventional wisdom,Ž Brown said, urging participants to come up with suggestions on how to improve response. Ultimately, whatever plan is developed will be uniform throughout the county. Its very important were all doing it the same way,Ž Brown said. One of the issues that some raised was that classrooms have entrances leading into multiple hallways. That would enable a shooter to quickly move from one hallway to the next by going through classrooms. Another concern voiced by teachers was that in at least some rooms, the windows were completely uncovered, resulting in the rooms being so lighted that it was dif“cult for people to hide. Brown said its likely that those issues will be among others considered during post-scenario planning. The scenario was held in the wake of the mass shooting at a school in Simulation timeBy JAY MEISELSTAFF WRITERLaw enforcement, school employees plan for an active shooter situationSEBRING „ Highlands County commissioners who wanted to see Sebring Parkway Phase II completed before Phase III might get their wish, by a few days. County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. told county commissioners on Tuesday that, if the Southwest Florida Water Management District signs off on the plans, Phase II could go to bid by late April or early May, and start construction by midto late September. Thats our goal right now,Ž Howerton con“rmed Friday, September or before „ as soon as possible.Ž Phase II, planned in AŽ and BŽ sections, has been on the drawing board the longest of any sections, following the route of Highlands Avenue north from U.S. 27 at the intersection where Highlands Regional Medical Center sits. One of the biggest problems has been “guring out how to deal with traf“c in and out of both the hospital and medical practices across Highlands Avenue from the county-owned, privately-leased facility. Currently, motorists can turn left out of the HRMC main entrance to go a short distance to the highway, or can Phase II may start late summerBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERTAMPA (AP) „ Interior walls are still being painted, scaffolding surrounds the exterior, and some amenities await installation, but restoration of Tampas oldest wooden cigar factory and its conversion into an apartment building is nearly complete. Just the “nishing touches now,Ž said Ariel Quintela, who along with business partner Darryl Shaw is the developer. On May 1, after over three years of construction, the 32,000-square-foot, three-story structure built in the late1800s at what is now Palm Avenue and 19th Street will open as the Angel Oliva Sr. Apartments. The “nished apartment complex will be as historically accurate as possible, Quintela said. We wanted to use as much as the actual material of the building as we could. When we couldnt, we made it look real.Ž Here are some examples: Moldings and shutters on all 167 windows are original, as are 40 percent of the exterior sidings. The original front door, once tossed in the trash as unsalvageable by a construction crew, was retrieved and restored. The “rst ”oors interior stairway balusters date to the factorys opening and the rest are exact replicas. The entire structure has hardwood ”oors, but not enough of the original boards remained intact. So the developers used what remained and purchased Wooden cigar factories opening as Ybor City apartmentsBy PAUL GUZZOTAMPA BAY TIMESMemorial game set for late APHS baseball playerLane Crosson died last yearAVON PARK „ The varsity baseball team will play in honor of late Avon Park High School baseball player Lane Crosson at 7 p.m. Friday at a home game against Mulberry. There will be no admission fees for the game. Crosson played ball for Avon Park High School before graduating in 2012 and going on to play with South Florida State College and Webber University. Crosson was just 23 years old when he died from an accident while working on Sept. 26; he just graduated with a business degree in July from Warner University.

Along with considering the proclamation resolution at its meeting at 6 p.m., the City Council agenda includes a proclamation for Womens Lung Health Week.Ž Among the proclamation guidelines and procedures the City Council will consider: € The request should be made at least four weeks in advance of a regularly scheduled council meeting. € A representative of the organization and/or local resident should agree to be in attendance to accept the proclamation. € The city retains the right to modify, edit or otherwise amend the proposed proclamation to meet its requirements, needs or policy determinations. € The City of Avon Park retains the right to decide if the proclamation will be issued or not. Also, the City Council will consider a resolution supporting the concept of solar purchasing cooperatives. The City Council meets in the Council Chambers at 123 E. Pine St., Avon Park.AP Council to consider guidelines for proclamationsMARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER Putnam: Fire season in full forceResidents warned to use cautionSEBRING „ Last year saw Highlands County frequently shrouded in smoke from active wild“res, including a long-burning muck “re near Lake Placid. This year has already seen a large muck “re near Sebring as well as many smaller “res in and around local communities. Although the local picture is not as busy or smoky as last year, Highlands residents are still advised to use caution, as Floridas wild“re season is far from “nished. Melissa Yunas, public information of“cer with the Forest Service Okeechobee District, said Highlands County still has two active wild“res: € The 300-acre Mini Ranch Road muck “re, which started March 3 and still has hot spots on the east side by the sod farm. € A 1.5-acre wild“re off State Road 70, which started Wednesday, and is now contained. The heat/“re drought index currently is 512 on a scale of 800. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, Highlands County is in abnormally dryŽ conditions. If the area does not get rain soon, were going to be in moderate drought,Ž Yunas said. The indexes measure the level of moisture in the soil, down as far as eight inches below the surface. Every day without rainfall, the drought monitor and heat/“re indexes increase, she said. Vegetation is losing more moisture and becomes more susceptible to ignition. This is a process that started in October, Yunas said, with storm debris and any other dead vegetation. Next to dry out is the grasses. Its gotten to the point where shrubs have lost moisture,Ž Yunas said. After that, trees dry out. Over the past week, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which oversees the Florida Forest Service, has reported an average of 35 active wild“res in the state, burning an average of 33,906 acres. Of“cial numbers as of Thursday were 35 active wild“res on 33,605 acres, total. Signi“cant wild“res in the state include: € Greenway Wild“re on 17,957 acres in Collier County „ 95 percent contained. € Firebreak Wild“re on 8,080 acres in Gulf County „ 90 percent contained. € Old Blade Line Wild“re on 450 acres in Polk County „ 60 percent contained. € Mud Dauber Road Wild“re on 139 acres in Polk County „ 100 percent contained. People had to evacuate these wild“res, and many more may have to evacuate from “res that have not yet ignited. Yunas asks people not to wait until they are told to evacuate. Each family needs to have an evacuation kit and plan of action, including a meeting point for all family members. Also, make a plan for pets. Any pet left behind may die in the “re, Yunas said, so she urges people to plan to take pets along. The Florida Forest Service also urges residents to be cautious with “re and heat sources and practice the following safety tips: € Call 911 or a local Florida Forest Service “eld unit of“ce in the event of a wild“re. € Obey Floridas outdoor burning laws, as listed on www.freshfrom”orida.com. € Never leave an outdoor “re or hot grill unattended. € Never burn on windy days. € Always keep a water source and suppression tools with you when burning yard debris. € Avoid parking vehicles on dry grass. The last warning is especially poignant given the fact that many local venues, including churches and ball “elds, use grass parking versus paved parking. People are advised to make sure they are at least maintaining such lawns to the minimum watering standard allowed by water management districts under drought conditions.By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER COURTESY GRAPHIC/U.S. DROUGHT MONITORCurrently, Highlands County is in abnormally dry conditions, based on this map from the U.S. Drought Monitor, released on Thursday. Florida Forest Service ocials warn that if there is no more rain this weekend, the county may enter moderate drought, like the areas just south of Lake Okeechobee. adno=720013Proposed Action and AlternativesThe U.S. Air Force (USAF) is proposing to establish an Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) F-35A mission.

Cornell is the coach at APHS and was Crossons former coach during his high school career. Crosson wore the number 5 on his baseball jerseys. Many former friends and previous team mates now wear the number 5 on their jerseys and some have Crossons initials LCŽ written in a way that shows a 5 in a bit of an optical illusion. I want everyone who has a jersey with the number 5 on it to wear it,Ž Crossons grandmother Janet Hardy said. We would like to see all of his friends that used to play with Lane show up. I want to see the players that still play with his number on their jerseys.Ž Hardy said she has a special announcement that she cannot wait to share with everyone at the game. She is expecting a good attendance. He was such a great kid; everyone loved him,Ž Hardy said. He is missed by so many people.ŽGAMEFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTOLane Crosson is seen here pitching for the Avon Park Red Devils. wooden ”ooring thats just as old, from a torn-down, 130-year-old building in Tennessee. Even the new baseboards were designed to replicate the originals. Why not go the extra mile?Ž Quintela said. The once wide-open factory ”oors are now sectioned into 38 apartments, each from 600 square feet to 1,200 square feet. Renters will be sought in the coming weeks. Hillsborough County Property Appraiser records list the 2014 sales price for the factory at $780,000. Quintela wouldnt reveal how much the partners have invested in the restoration, saying only, It was worth it. Were preserving history.Ž Property appraisers records say the factory was built in 1885, but thats wrong, said Tampa Bay History Center curator Rodney Kite-Powell. The “rst Ybor City cigar factory was built of brick, in 1886, Kite-Powell said. The “rst mention he found of the wooden factory is an 1899 Sandborn map „ part of a series of street plans dating to the mid-1800s. Most cigar factories from that era were wooden, not brick, Kite-Powell said, but they didnt survive like the brick ones did. Aside from the Oliva factory, only one other made of timber still stands „ the Salvador Rodriguez Co. at 402 22nd St. S. in Palmetto Beach. The building is a headquarters for Pilgrim Permocoat, manufacturers and distributors of adhesives. Those are the only glimpses we have left of that time,Ž Kite-Powell said. The Oliva building was “rst inhabited by the R. Monne & Bro. cigar company and developer. Quintela said Cuban freedom “ghter Jos Mart spoke there during his seventh of some 20 trips to Ybor City in the late 1800s to raise money for the island nations war of independence against Spain. Living here means you will live among history,Ž Quintela said. Over the years, the factory was used by other tobacco companies, including Lopez, Alvarez & Co. Some of them rolled their own line of cigars as well as cigars for others, including the Swann family „ namesake of the avenue that connects Bayshore and West Shore boulevards. A Home of Swann CigarsŽ sign was discovered under exterior siding on the Oliva building in 2015, though it was covered up again. Quintela said the developers soon will create a replica of it.YBORFROM PAGE 1 Broward County earlier this year. That prompted school of“cials and law enforcement in Highlands County and other Florida counties to evaluate whether their schools are ready to respond to a mass shooting. Dozens of Highlands County deputies and teachers participated in the scenario. Some Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission law enforcement of“cers also assisted. Highlands County Sheriff Paul Blackman said that the main purpose of the scenario was to bring awareness to people of the possibility of school shootings. But its also to look at responses and see if things need to be improved, he added. One twist in the school shooting was that the shooter was a female. Sgt. Kimberly Gunn portrayed the shooter. Gunn said that the darkness of some classrooms and that people were hiding presented a challenge. It was only after maneuvering her way around the school did she focus on taking people out,Ž she said. After shots were heard and reported, Highlands County dispatch called for deputies to respond. Those deputies, Blackman said, were not given access to the script for the scenario. Scott Dressel, public information of“cer for the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce, said that one twist in the scenario was that the shooter shot out locks on the doors, enabling her to enter rooms regardless of the doors being locked. Thats certainly a possibility authorities and school of“cials will talk about as they move forward in developing a plan, he said. Even after the shooter was killed, the scenario played out a bit longer because participants had to make sure that a second shooter wasnt present. Someone had said during the scenario that they thought a second shooter was present, Dressel said. Although that wasnt the case, none of the people taking part in it knew that there wasnt a second shooter,Ž he added. Jimmy Brinlow, a school resource of“cer, was the injured law enforcement of“cer. He was shot in the legs, he said. While school of“cials and law enforcement believe the scenario and the plan that will be developed as a result it will help a lot, Blackman said, preparing for an active shooter wont end with that. Its a never-ending process,Ž he said.DRILLFROM PAGE 1 KATARA SIMMONS/ CORRESPONDENTThis exercise in the unied command system for a school shooting helps train law enforcement for real life scenarios. turn right and then left again into several different medical practice of“ces. Widening the road to four lanes was going to compound the danger for left turns, so Howerton and Assistant County Engineer J.D. Langford eliminated them. Phase IIB, by the hospital, will close off left turns from U.S. 27 to DeSoto Road, plans show. People will be able to turn right and then turn around at a roundabout set at the northwest corner of the HRMC campus. Also, that will accommodate a rear entrance of the hospital with an expanded parking area. The current main entrance will stay, but only as a right-in, right-out only entrance, according to plans. South of the current main parking area, plans indicate that a green lawn will get transformed into retention ponds, needed to facilitate drainage and recharge area after adding the extra pavement. Sebring Parkway Phase IIA will install four lanes from Youth Care Lane to DeSoto Road, improving the signalized intersections there with extra stacking room for right and left turn lanes both on the Parkway and on the cross-streets. Other than that, Phase IIA will simply carry southward the road widening that exists between Kenilworth Boulevard and Youth Care Lane. Interestingly, its been 14 months since Howerton told Commissioner Jim Brooks at another meeting that he was hoping to have something to SWFWMD within a month. He said at the time that one of the challenges in building Phase IIA was the CSX Railroad crossing in the middle of that section. It had already been improved in anticipation of the four-lane section, but Howerton „ who had been hired the previous year „ said the county still needed to work closely with CSX. You know, weve got to work with the railroad on these things,Ž Howerton said last year. And thats kinda like pulling teeth.Ž Former Highlands News-Sun staff writer Gary Pinnell contributed to this report.PHASEFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTO/HIGHLANDS COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERSSebring Parkway Phase IIA will install four lanes from Youth Care Lane to DeSoto Road, improving the intersections there with extra stacking room for right and left turn lanes both on the Parkway and on the cross-streets.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comWritten citations is a jokeI got a big chuckle reading the Monday, April 2, biggest traf“c infraction article. I have long wondered about the lack of police presence along the whole US 27 corridor. But 887 total citations for speeding in the county is totally dumbfounding in a year. Take just Sebring; at every stoplight, the road looks like an airport runway with all the tire skid marks that should be the “rst clue about speed. Its 50 mph; very few are doing it. Then throw in the lane changes and U-turns, 80,000 semi-trucks and volume of vehicles. If Im doing 60 mph in the right lane through town on my motorcycle, Im not going to pass anyone. Its the responsibility of the state DOT to do traf“c studies where deaths occur to make changes where needed. There is also portable equipment available. But I would “rst suggest dropping the speed limit 10 mph and have a heavy presence of marked squads with of“cers inside them. There are also grant funds available for special programs. Speed is a problem in the whole state, I-4, I-75, I-95, etc. But I live down here in Lake Placid. Id like to see things get safer for everyone. I worked in the traf“c section of a police department on a motorcycle, traf“c enforcement and handling accidents. If I wanted to remain in that unit I was expected to issue citations and not just ride around for eight hours. There wasnt any quota, it was my job to help make the roads safe. But in a years run, I know I wrote more that 2,000 citations a year, thats just me. Not counting all the other of“cers on the police department. A portion of the “ne monies came back to the city and police department to help keep everything up to date and needed equipment and to hire more of“cers if needed. I dont think Florida does that. But please, slow it down; 20 mph over the posted limit isnt the norm. Or give me a couple court dates, a bunch of ticket books, a radar gun and Ill raise my right hand again and do it myself. Robert Wuytack Lake PlacidHelp with state projectDear People of the Great State of Florida, Hello! I am a fourthgrade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we research a state for our State Fair, and I have chosen your state. I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Florida as I work on my report. While we will research most of the information ourselves, we also like to get “rsthand knowledge from people who live in the state. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some small items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that you think would be useful. You can mail items to the address below by April 30 for our State Fair on May 18. I really appreciate your help and will do my very best to send a thank you note to each and every person who takes the time and makes the effort to help me with this project. Thank you in advance for your consideration.Anna Fletcher Mrs. Smiths Class Charlotte Latin School 9502 Providence Road Charlotte, NC 28277 Boy, is narcissism getting out of hand with younger generations. San Diego State psychologist Jean Twenge examines the trend in two books: Generation MeŽ and The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement.Ž Twenge says the self-esteem movement „ in which everybody gets a trophy „ has produced many me-centeredŽ young adults, whose opinions of their own skills and talents are often out of sync with reality. Why is this an issue? Because, says Psychology Today, true narcissists can only see things from their own perspective.Ž They are incapable of the civility and thoughtful deliberation a representative republic requires to address the many challenges ours is facing. Lucky for me, I grew up in the 70s when it was impossible to become self-centered. Unlike many modern parents, who often give their children unique names to demonstrate how specialŽ they are, I was given the biblical name Thomas, after my father. I never took myself too seriously, because thousands of other kids had names „ Bill, Bob, Tim, Joe „ just as common. Families were bigger in the 70s. Growing up as the only boy with “ve sisters was awfully humbling. When I was 12, Bobby Grebber, the neighborhood bully, began roughing me up. Well, I didnt have older brothers to teach me how to “ght; my sisters taught me. I looked Grebber dead in the eyes and said, You are sooooo immature! Get a life!Ž Even though I had “ve sisters, my father, always pinching pennies, made me wear hand-me-downs. It wasnt too bad most of the year, but Easter Sunday was unpleasant. Do you know how hard it is to outrun a bully with your pantyhose bunching up and your bonnet ”opping in the wind? We never experienced a self-esteem movement at St. Germaine Catholic School. The nuns didnt worry about making us feel good about ourselves. They focused on pounding values into us and making sure we mastered math, science, reading and writing. Any narcissistic tendencies were wacked out of us with a hard wooden ruler. I attended a public high school, where I was “nally able to attempt a little narcissism „ until my parents saw a slip in my grades. That resulted in a temporary loss of every privilege. No B grade or better meant no car, friends or the freedom to leave the house. I made it to Penn State University, where I gave narcissism a full go. It was there that I was introduced to my “rst love: Rolling Rock beer. By the time I was a junior, I had attained, to quote comedian Frank Nicotero, a 3.2Ž (blood-alcohol level). But my parents intervened and humbled me yet again. No B grade or better meant no more cash. Whats worse, my father, worried that my liberal-arts major would fail to land me a job, persuaded me to sign up for more practical courses. Im the only person ever to graduate from Penn State with a major in English and a minor in air conditioning and heating. In any event, unlike older generations which had little choice but to be humbled out of their narcissistic impulses, newer generations are getting too self-centered. Twenge tells NPR that millennials score higher on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory than prior generations. She says narcissism is evident in pop songs, which focus on the self, as well as in books that frequently use phrases such as I am specialŽ and all about me.Ž And obsessive use of social media, home of the sel“e,Ž certainly nurtures a narcissists worst tendencies. Perhaps parents should re-embrace some of the harsh child-rearing techniques of prior generations, so that we may reverse todays Narcissistic Personality Inventory scores. Because todays growing narcissism is hurting an entire generation of our children, which is not good for our country.

Not just because they have marched, but also because of their devotion to a cause thats bigger than they are; their willingness to live their commitments „ and look past the haters. The young people of the newest gun-control movement are simply the latest iteration of Martin Luther Kings legacy of nonviolent protest, inspiring followers and rattling the powers that be. April 4, 2018, the 50th anniversary of Kings assassination, suddenly is not just a day on which the man is commemorated. Rather, it is a call to action. And in recent weeks and months, in our own backyard, weve seen that many havent had to wait for a specific date to get involved. In the past year, weve seen citizens put their commitment to what they see as a better America on display, and their credibility, reputations „ and security „ on the line. The womens marches, Colin Kaepernick, fearful immigrants. Most recently, students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have taken the trauma of the Feb. 14 shooting and distilled from their grief and anger the message: #NeverAgain. They have taken their fight against assault weapons in civilians hands to the streets and the halls of power. Two of those student leaders, Kai Koerber and Tyah Roberts, both 17, juniors and #MSDStrong, are the faces of such commitment. They talked to the Editorial Board on Tuesday about what theyve learned from King. We need to be peaceful and resilient in our message and showcase the struggle thats really happening,Ž said Roberts, who in addition to pushing for gun control, also wants African-American students at Stoneman Douglas to be safe in the face of massive police presence. But we need to make sure that we are doing it in a way that is ethical and a way that is right and that will really effect change.Ž Ultimately, #NeverAgain must reach the voting booth. Thats just what King set in motion to ensure that African Americans achieved what was promised them in the Bill of Rights. And like King, who faced down fire hoses, a stabbing, FBI surveillance and hostility from frightened whites and impatient blacks, students will have to work through the vitriol against them on social media, the lies and the mockery „ largely from adults. Again, like King, Roberts and Koerber know that their cause wont end with them: The things we do from now to the end of our lives,Ž Koerber said, is not our final resolve.Ž An editorial from the Miami Herald.Following in MLKs footstepsANOTHER VIEW YOUR VIEW Tom Purcell GUEST COLUMN Tim Smolarick Publisher tim.smolarick@highlandsnewssun.com Romona Washington Executive Editor romona.washington@highlandsnewssun.com JOIN THE CONVERSATIONLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

Monday, April 9, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 www.highlandsnewssun.com Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. The following is about a landmark in Bartow that some Heartland residents will remember. It was once a very popular place to visit. It was brought to my attention from one of the volunteers at the Avon Park Depot Museum that visited the Wonder House. Admission was 25 cents. It was and still is the Wonder House,Ž an enchanting 18-room, four-story mansion built in Bartow by Conrad Schuck and his “ve sons. It was to be their family home. It took 13 years to build. It was so interesting and unusual that it caught the attention of Ripleys Believe It Or NotŽ and gained national attention. It became a very popular tourist attraction from the 1930s to the 1960s long before Disney World and other major attractions came to central Florida. After building for over a decade and not completing the house, Schuck gave up and sold the house. His passion and determination had kept him going a lot longer than a couple of years. It was the DuCharme family that purchased the house and completed the construction. They made very few structural changes but did add central air and heat, enclosed a porch to be used for a breakfast room and remodeled several bathrooms. Who was Conrad Schuck? He was a builder. He was a poet and a philosopher and a dreamer. He was all of these, but most of all he was a dreamer,Ž wrote Lucy DuCharme after purchasing the house in 1964. The doctors told Schuck, a Pittsburgh building contractor and stone quarry dealer in the late 1920s, that his days on earth were numbered. So Schuck decided to take his wife and nine children and move to Bartow, Florida and use his architectural knowledge and his fortune, to build the house of his dreams and to avoid thinking of his impending death. When Schuck started the excavation for his dream house, he found that he was digging into bedrock. Undaunted, he decided to use the rocks to his advantage. A railroad line sold him a large number of steel rails as scrap material, and since in the 1920s good wood in Florida was scarce, Schuck decided to build his house of concrete over stone, reinforced with the steel rails. He took great pride in the fact that his house, with walls 18 inches thick at the ground level, was built almost entirely from the land it sat on except for the rails and imported tile. The ”oor plan of the house is designed in the shape of a cross with each room opening up to two porches. This plan provided a cross draft for each room and in the days before central air-conditioning, was a boom for summer comfort in Florida. Schuck designed the porches with hollow concrete columns to gather rain water from the roof. This was to give cooling insulation and to supply water for the planters from faucets in each column. Bits of glass and tile were worked into the concrete porches to add color. A third ”oor porch features an 8 x 10 foot “shpond. The tile used in the designs embedded on the ”oor and railings of this and other porches were imported from seven countries. The Wonder House, which was started by Conrad Schuck some 90 years ago, stands as a tribute to a man who dared to dream. The doctors were wrong. He lived to the age of 94.

Dogs are forever mans best friend, and with this comes many liberties that are not shared with other household pets. We take dogs to specialty parks, beaches and events. This is proof that dogs are given favorable treatment when compared to other domestic animals. After all, when was the last time you took your cat out to a cat park? Though dogs are given a multitude of special allowances, they are also prohibited from many public places. In fact, dogs are only allowed in speci“c dog-approved locations. This raises the question, should dogs be allowed in more public places? What are the bene“ts or cons of allowing dogs to attend public events or visit public locations? Dogs have been bred to serve human needs for centuries. They not only serve, but also protect. However, human needs to use dogs to accomplish goals have dwindled quickly, meaning that domestic dog breeds have not been able to evolve to remain necessary helpers in human lives and activities. Now, dogs are involved in our lives in very different ways. Many are family pets, or companions. And throughout the country many dogs are protectors of their homes, alerting their owners to potential threats „ or just a squirrel scampering through the backyard. Many dogs are still important as service animals. From helping the blind to diabetics, service animals are often allowed where pets are not usually. This includes restaurants or other public places where the human they are servicing will need their assistance. There are obvious reasons to not allow dogs into certain locations, including sanitation or liability. It has become the standard belief that it is better to exclude these animals from these places, to make sure no dog will create a mess or hurt someone. However, what are we to do with our dogs when we are out for a long time? They shouldnt have to stay in a kennel or in the backyard for hours at a time, wondering where you are or if you are coming back. This can be especially stressful for some dogs, including those with separation anxiety. This leads to destructive activities, which could also stem from boredom. Dogs are a part of our families, and they often enjoy traveling with us. What else do dogs do, other than explore? For this reason, I always try to bring my dog to events when I know I can. And if I am going out of town with my dog, I try to plan a point in the day where we will do something that is more dog oriented, so that I can give him some highlights in the day as well. I cannot say that it is the best idea to bring your dog with you everywhere, nor do I think that dogs should be allowed into public places like restaurants or schools. However, I do think that there should be more pet friendly stores and shops, for people who do like to travel with their dogs, or for dogs who have issues being separated from their owners. We need to be more dog-friendly ColumnistANNSLEY BOHMAN

Before the Costa FLW Series Southeastern Division event on Santee Cooper began, there was a little saying going around that was the tipoff for an impending slugfest: Bring em big, or bust. Ronnie McCoy of Lamar, S.C., took that adage to heart. He brought them big the “rst day with 26 pounds, didnt bust the second day with 21-6 and then brought them the best the “nal day with 26-2. All totaled, McCoy wrangled 73 1/2 pounds of Santee Cooper bass to win the event by a 5-11 margin and pocket a total prize purse of $93,500. This is the fourth Costa event Ive “shed on this lake trying to make this happen,Ž McCoy says. The highest “nish I ever had was 19th. So to “nally win one of these on this lake in front of my friends and family is a true blessing.Ž McCoys journey to the winners circle involved getting the best out of two of Santees primary patterns during the week: the bass spawn and the shad spawn. On Tuesday of practice, McCoy launched his boat in the upper portion of Lake Marion and immediately noticed a shad spawn occurring on a primary point with cypress trees. Two bites told him all he needed to know about that pattern, and he spent the rest of practice looking for more spawning shad and bedding bass. When day one of the tournament dawned, he decided his best bet for getting the event started off on the right foot was to go secure a limit on the shad spawn “rst. After securing a quick limit of about 15 pounds, he checked some of the beds he had found in practice to hunt for “sh that could help him upgrade. But by the time he made it down the lake to Potato Creek to sight-“sh, most of his “sh had either abandoned the beds or had already been picked off. So after that, I just went looking for new “sh,Ž McCoy recalls. I was trolling along throwing a frog and looking when I looked down and saw two huge bass on a deep bed.

After I settled myself down, I stood up, looked down and the other big one was lying right there in the bed. Three ips later I caught her. That bass weighed an estimated 7 pounds. A little while later McCoy caught another 6-pounder off a bed and ended up culling out all of his shad spawn sh with bedding sh to the tune of 26 pounds to start the event in third place. His day-two shad spawn pattern was strong enough to keep him from dipping below the 20-pound mark for the day. McCoy was the only pro to bring 20-plus pounds all three days. He entered day three just A pound behind the leader, Daniel Howell. If he was going to catch Howell on the nal day, McCoy knew the shad spawn bite was going to have to light his way into victory lane. With just 10 boats in the eld and an earlier takeoff time on the nal day, McCoy arrived to his spot earlier than he had all week. Weather was also playing to his favor as clouds and a perfect breeze graced his best cypress tree point. Within 90 minutes this morning, McCoy sacked up 20 pounds.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, April 9, 2018 When I think of acrylic, my mind goes to nail salons where they apply hard acrylic to your “ngernailsƒit doesnt go to coffee or potato chips! But this compound is, in fact, almost always present in coffee and potato chips, as well as many other foods such as cereal, French fries, peanut butterƒ even prune juice. Acrylamide levels are higher in things that are fried like French fries. Just like frying, toasting can produce acrylamide, thats why dark toast is worse for you than light toast, as are well-down has browns, versus lightly browned onesƒ basically the darker (more cooked) areas on your food tend to have more acrylamide. Coffee is high in acrylamide and thats why coffee shops are facing scrutiny now. Id like a Vanilla Latte, double-shot, extra whipped cream, no acrylamide. Starbucks and other big-name cafes are under “re. You see, acrylamide is a compound known to the FDA as a possibleŽ carcinogen. To be fair, the carcinogenic potential of dietary-related acrylamide from foods and beverages is actually unknown. Natural coffee beans dont have acrylamide, it happens during the re“nement process. When coffee growers roast their coffee beans, the acrylamide content goes up to a certain degree. Then coffee houses prepare beverages for us (the consumer) and we drink it. Does that mean were drinking acrylamide? In recent breaking news, Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle has just ruled that coffee companies like Starbucks, Peets and others will have to carry the cancer warning label in the state of California. I am con“dent this cancer-causing acrylamide problem wont even impact their salesƒnot even a dollar! Coffee lovers arent going to run because we, as a nation, are fairly desensitized to toxins by now. Nobody cares if meat contains 28 different ingredients, aside from meat. Nobody cares if blueberry cereal doesnt have real blueberries in it, but rather purple goo. Nobody cares if French fries are fried in disgusting oil. These are the foods that are the highest in acrylamide, so youll want to avoid or minimize these: French fries and potato chips Grains like pasta Breakfast cereal Darkly toasted bread or bagels Certain cookies Lightly roasted coffee beans Peanut, almond or sun”ower butter Thats just the main foods. There are others which I can share in my extended version of this article. Ive written a much more comprehensive article about this, including more about why the foods above are high in acrylamide and what you can substitute. Ive also offered a list of foods and supplements that offset the damage done by acrylamide. To get all of this, its simple.

Ginger is often touted as a great cure for nausea, and people often drink ginger ale when their stomachs are upset, but is ginger safe to use during pregnancy? Yes, ginger is great for nausea,Ž said Dr. Summer Khan, obstetrician at Grace and Heart OBGYN. In addition, Khan recommends eating foods high in Vitamin B6 to alleviate nausea and vomiting. Great sources of Vitamin B6 include forti“ed cereals, chickpeas, sun”ower seeds, lean “sh and lean meat. Along with their growing abdomens, women also experience a growing number of aches and pains during pregnancy. Ibuprofen, a common pain reliever, is not safe for pregnant women. According to Reyes, ARNP at Heartland Womens Health, Ibuprofen is contraindicated during pregnancy as it could harm the baby or cause problems during labor when taken close to term.Ž However, it is generally safe to take Tylenol, or acetaminophen, when pregnant, as long as it does not exceed the recommended dosage, and it is approved by the health care professional. Khan recommends a comprehensive plan to address pain that includes Tylenol, massage and ice packs. Highlands County has several massage parlors that specialize in massage for pregnant women.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com 7 ways to get a workout at workIts no secret that Americans need to move more. Yet our jobs often require us to sit for eight to 10 hours a day … at home, the of“ce or behind the wheel … often getting up only for lunch and trips to the bathroom. And that can be hazardous to your health. Theres a strong link between a sedentary lifestyle and the risk of death. It also increases the risk of adverse health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and many types of cancer,Ž said Qaiser Mukhtar, a health scientist in the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity & Obesity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thats why physical activity is so important.Ž To lower risk of heart attack and stroke, for example, the American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate, or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, per week. While that might sound like a lot, it works out to only 30 minutes a day for a “ve-day work week. The good news for of“ce workers who may have dif“culty blocking out even a half hour for exercise is, you dont have to get those 30 minutes all at once. Bouts of even less than 10 minutes at a time are bene“cial,Ž said Dr. Michael V. McConnell, head of Cardiovascular Health Innovations at Verily Life Sciences. So just in time for Move More Month in April, here are some easy, even fun ways to stay active at work: €No one ever said meetings had to be held sitting down. Take a walking meeting instead. Youll exercise your heart, get the blood ”owing, and may come back to the of“ce with some outof-the-box ideas. €Find a walking buddy to join you during your lunch hour or scheduled breaks. €Face-to-face conversations are often more productive than phone calls, emails or texts. So the next time you want to communicate with a coworker, get up and walk to their desk instead. €You already walk down three ”ights of stairs and up two? Good. Now increase your physical activity by using a restroom on another ”oor or getting off the elevator a ”oor or two below yours and taking the stairs the rest of the way. And no one says you have to use the copier, printer or waste bin closest to your desk. €Water cooler talk is “ne, but water cooler stretches and squats are even better. Harvard epidemiology professor Kaumudi Joshipura has a whole movement called VMove dedicated to helping people move more anytime, anywhere and without needing any special gear or attire. For example, dont just sit there while talking on the phone. Stand up and march in place, do squats or swing your arms instead. Take brief breaks to stand and move during long sedentary meetings. Do ankle circles and ”exes while sitting or lift your legs and hold them up for “ve seconds. And dont forget your wrists, arms and neck. They also need to be stretched after long hours at the keyboard. €Consider taking public transportation to work. Youll probably have to walk farther going to and from the bus or subway stop then to your parked car. And you may save money, too. €Healthier workers are more productive, take fewer sick days and have lower health care costs. So join your companys employee wellness committee (or start one if you have to) to make it easier to exercise during the work day. Consider these steps: 1. Flexible work schedules so you have more time to exercise before or after work when its still light out. 2. Schedule meetings to end “ve minutes early to encourage people to get up and move around. 3. Make standing or walking desks available to those who want one. 4. The latest in employee bene“ts: paid time to exercise. If you have questions or comments about this story, please email editor@heart.org.BY AMERICAN HEART ASSO-CIATION NEWS COURTESY PHOTO/ MCCThere are many ways to squeeze in a workout at work. WASHINGTON (AP) „ Consumers getting “nancial assistance under former President Barack Obamas health care law will pay lower premiums this year, even though the list priceŽ for their health insurance shot up. That odd result is re”ected in a report issued Tuesday by the Trump administration. After federal aid, the average monthly premium paid by subsidized customers on HealthCare. gov is dropping to $89 from last years $106. Thats a 16 percent savings even though the list priceŽ premium went up about 30 percent, now averaging $639 for those subsidized customers. The bottom line is counterintuitive, but it shows how ObamacareŽ subsidies cushion consumers from rising premiums. Seema Verma, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, says more affordable health care options are needed for people who arent eligible for the Affordable Care Acts income-based “nancial assistance. But independent analysts say a big part of this years premium increases is due to actions by the Trump administration, including the cancellation of major payments to insurers. Insurers jacked up premiums to make up for the loss of federal dollars to cover discounted copays and deductibles that the companies were required to provide to low-income customers. Congressional authorization of the payments was under a legal cloud, and President Donald Trump pulled the plug. Bipartisan efforts to restore the money recently fell apart over disputes about abortion coverage. These numbers show for the “rst time how the Trump administrations termination of payments to insurers in a sense back“red,Ž said Larry Levitt of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. The result, which is a little bizarre, is that consumers eligible for government premium subsidies are actually paying less out of their own pockets for insurance on average than last year.Ž About 11.8 million people signed up for coverage this year through HealthCare.gov and state insurance markets, a slight dip from last year.Obamacare premiums shoot upASSOCIATED PRESSBut many are paying less Gregg Shore, M.D. Specializing in InterStim Therapy for Incontinence in Highlands County!

More than half of Americans take vitamin supplements, including 68 percent of those age 65 and older, according to a 2013 Gallup poll. Among older adults, 29 percent take four or more supplements of any kind, according to a Journal of Nutrition study published in 2017. Often, preliminary studies fuel irrational exuberance about a promising dietary supplement, leading millions of people to buy in to the trend. Many never stop. They continue even though more rigorous studies „ which can take many years to complete „ almost never “nd that vitamins prevent disease, and in some cases cause harm. The enthusiasm does tend to outpace the evidence,Ž said Dr. JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at Bostons Brigham and Womens Hospital. Theres no conclusive evidence that dietary supplements prevent chronic disease in the average American, Manson said. And while a handful of vitamin and mineral studies have had positive results, those “ndings havent been strong enough to recommend supplements to the general U.S. public, she said. The National Institutes of Health has spent more than $2.4 billion since 1999 studying vitamins and minerals. Yet for all the research weve done, we dont have much to show for it,Ž said Dr. Barnett Kramer, director of cancer prevention at the National Cancer Institute. A big part of the problem, Kramer said, could be that much nutrition research has been based on faulty assumptions, including the notion that people need more vitamins and minerals than a typical diet provides; that megadoses are always safe; and that scientists can boil down the bene“ts of vegetables like broccoli into a daily pill. Vitamin-rich foods can cure diseases related to vitamin de“ciency. Oranges and limes were famously shown to prevent scurvy in vitamin-deprived 18th-century sailors. And research has long shown that populations that eat a lot of fruits and vegetables tend to be healthier than others. But when researchers tried to deliver the key ingredients of a healthy diet in a capsule, Kramer said, those efforts nearly always failed. Its possible that the chemicals in the fruits and vegetables on your plate work together in ways that scientists dont fully understand „ and which cant be replicated in a tablet, said Marjorie McCullough, strategic director of nutritional epidemiology for the American Cancer Society. More important, perhaps, is that most Americans get plenty of the essentials, anyway. Although the Western diet has a lot of problems „ too much sodium, sugar, saturated fat and calories, in general „ its not short on vitamins, said Alice Lichtenstein, a professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. And although there are more than 90,000 dietary supplements from which to choose, federal health agencies and advisers still recommend that Americans meet their nutritional needs with food, especially fruits and vegetables. Also, American food is highly forti“ed „ with vitamin D in milk, iodine in salt, B vitamins in ”our, even calcium in some brands of orange juice. Without even realizing it, someone who eats a typical lunch or breakfast is essentially eating a multivitamin,Ž said journalist Catherine Price, author of Vitamania: How Vitamins Revolutionized the Way We Think About Food.Ž That can make studying vitamins even more complicated, Price said. Researchers may have trouble “nding a true control group, with no exposure to supplemental vitamins. If everyone in a study is consuming forti“ed food, vitamins may appear less effective. The body naturally regulates the levels of many nutrients, such as vitamin C and many B vitamins, Kramer said, by excreting what it doesnt need in urine. He added: Its hard to avoid getting the full range of vitamins.Ž Not all experts agree. Dr. Walter Willett, a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, says its reasonable to take a daily multivitamin for insurance.Ž Willett said that clinical trials underestimate supplements true bene“ts because they arent long enough, often lasting “ve to 10 years. It could take decades to notice a lower rate of cancer or heart disease in vitamin takers, he said. For Charlsa Bentley, 67, keeping up with the latest nutrition research can be frustrating. She stopped taking calcium, for example, after studies found it doesnt protect against bone fractures. Additional studies suggest that calcium supplements increase the risk of kidney stones and heart disease. I faithfully chewed those calcium supplements, and then a study said they didnt do any good at all,Ž said Bentley, from Austin, Texas. Its hard to know whats effective and whats not.ŽVITAMINFROM PAGE 1Babies do not develop regular sleep cycles until about six months of age. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, newborns may only sleep one or two hours at a time but still sleep roughly 16 hours per day. The AAP notes that newborn sleep occurs in stages and is divided about equally between rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM sleep. The “rst stage of newborn sleep is characterized by drowsiness as babies begin to fall asleep. That drowsiness is followed by REM sleep, during which babies may twitch or jerk their arms or legs. During this stage, parents may notice their babies eyes moving under closed eyelids. In addition, a condition called normal periodic breathing of infancy,Ž in which babies breathing can be irregular and even stop for “ve to 10 seconds before starting again with rapid breathing that continues for 10 to 15 seconds, may occur. The rapid breathing during the REM stage will be followed by regular breathing until the cycle begins anew and repeats itself. The AAP advises parents that, during the pauses of normal periodic breathing of infancy, babies skin color does not change and parents need not be concerned. The third stage of newborn sleep is light sleep, a less active phase during which babies breathing becomes more regular. The fourth and “fth stages are deep nonREM sleep. During these stages, babies fall into a sleep that progressively deepens to a point where babies may be dif“cult to wake.

He had no role in the study, which was led by researchers at the University of Copenhagen, sponsored by the European Union, and published Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine. It involved 62,565 men in Denmark, where mandatory school and military service exams enabled tracking their health for decades. Heights and weights were measured when they were 7, 13, and between 17 and 26. National health records were used to see how many developed diabetes in adulthood. Men who were overweight at age 7 but werent by age 13 had similar odds of diabetes later in life as men whod never been overweight. Those who were overweight only at 13, or only at 7 and 13, had a lower risk than those who stayed overweight throughout young adulthood but a higher risk than men whod never been overweight. They are hopeful resultsŽ that show there are bene“ts if parents can help chubby kids grow into a healthy weight,Ž said Steven Gortmaker, a childhood obesity researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health. If you can slow the rise of obesity in very young children you have a chance of really preventing future cases of diabetes.Ž Why might the teen years matter so much? At adolescence you become more insulin resistant, just sort of a natural part of puberty,Ž Daniels explained.

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com The pollen is in full swing in the Heartland. With the pollen and the seasonal change come the onset of allergies. More people are experiencing allergy symptoms each year. Thirty percent of adults and nearly 40 percent of children are now affected by allergens. (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America April 7, 2017). Being exposed to grass, change in temperature, humidity, mold and pollen may trigger seasonal allergies. You may get a runny nose or a consistent cough. Sneezing will probably be a part of your day. When you experience seasonal allergies it takes a toll on your senses. Your ears and your hearing can also be affected. Your ears may become itchy. Sometimes they may even swell. They may feel blocked up or full. If your allergies are severe you may experience dizziness or vertigo. Allergies may end up causing a conductive hearing loss. Allergens can make your immune system produce antibodies that produce histamine. Along with the other symptoms listed, the body may produce more mucus. If this mucus settles in the middle ear behind the eardrum, then you may experience a temporary conductive hearing loss. A conductive hearing loss occurs when sound cannot travel through the outer and middle ear as it normally would when there is no ”uid blocking the wave. When this happens you may have pain in the ear as well as dizziness. Your inner ear may also be affected by allergies, and for those who already have inner ear disorders, like Menieres disease, you may have increased incidence of vertigo and increased tinnitus or ringing in the ears. While we all know how allergies can affect our eyes, our ears are just as susceptible to the seasonal climate changes. While there are many over-thecounter medicines and nasal sprays available to help alleviate the symptoms, it is always best to consult with your doctor to make sure you are not using something that will interfere with other medicines that you may be taking. If you develop pain or fullness in your ear you should immediately contact your doctor or an ENT (ear, nose, & throat doctor) to ensure the fastest relief of the symptoms and ward off any possible damage to your hearing.

MYERS „ Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS), the largest privately held independent medical oncology/ hematology practice in the United States, is expanding its nurse recruitment efforts to include Puerto Rico. The statewide practice is looking for both longterm and seasonal/ PRN staff at many locations in Florida, and is offering a sign-on bonus to help offset relocation costs. All candidates must be ”uent in English. CEO Bradley Prechtl said: Due to the shortage of nursing staff in Florida, we are hoping to recruit the best candidates not only from across the state, but we are also placing job ads in Puerto Rico. Florida Cancer Specialists offers the chance for nurses from Puerto Rico to relocate to Florida and build their career. Ž Dr. William Harwin, founder and president of FCS, added, Recruiting the best staff for our patients is always top of mind. Florida Cancer Specialists wants to ensure that we hire the best nursing staff with the ability to assess patient needs and conditions that are essential. Ž FCS Director of Nursing, Diane Cope, said, FCS is looking to recruit RNs or OCN Certi“ed RNs for the nursing staff positions. While Oncology Certi“cation in Nursing (OCN) is not required for all positions, it is certainly helpful if nurses have previous experience with cancer patients.Ž For information contact FCS Human Resources Career opportunities with Florida Cancer Specialists can be seen at https:// ”cancer.com/en/careers/.

The News Wire Monday, April 9, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER AMID TRADE FIGHT, TRUMP SAYS CHINA WILL DO THE RIGHT THINGSee page 2. AP PHOTOThis May 13, 2017, photo shows a portion of the Plutonium Finishing Plant on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation near Richland, Was h. SPOKANE, Wash. „ Seven decades after making key portions of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, workers at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation are being exposed to radiation as they tear down buildings that helped create the nations nuclear arsenal. Dozens of workers demolishing a plutonium processing plant from the 1940s have inhaled or ingested radioactive particles in the past year, and even carried some of that radiation into their vehicles, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The incidents have prompted the federal government, along with state regulators, to halt the demolition of the sprawling Plutonium Finishing Plant until a safe plan can be developed. The contamination has also shaken con“dence in a massive cleanup of Hanford, the nations most polluted nuclear weapons production site. The work costs the federal treasury around $2 billion a year. Hanford is near the city of Richland, about 200 miles southeast of Seattle. This is a very disturbing set of incidents,Ž said Tom Carpenter, head of the Seattle-based watchdog group Hanford Challenge. The Energy Department, which owns Hanford, has launched an independent investigation into the spread of radiation at the plant. The investigation will be conducted by an agency of“ce that is not connected to work at Hanford. Radioactive particles are known to have contaminated 42 workers, which led to the shutdown of demolition, the agency has said. Carpenter said widespread worker contamination has been rare at Hanford in recent decades. Plutonium production ended in the 1980s and the site in 1989 switched its focus to cleanup of nuclear wastes. Its one of the more serious events to happen in the age of cleanup at Hanford,Ž Carpenter said. There have been other incidents, but none rose to the level of plutonium contamination of this many people and private vehicles and being found miles and miles away.Ž A union representing some Hanford workers said it was closely monitoring the situation. Weve got our eyes on (the Energy Department) and will do what weve got to do to keep workers safe,Ž said Paul Ruggles, vice-president of the Hanford Atomic Metal Trades Council. Workers have the ability to Workers radiation exposure halts nuke plant demolitionBy NICHOLAS K. GERANIOSASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump on Sunday condemned a mindless CHEMICAL attackŽ in Syria that killed women and children, called Syrian President Bashar Assad an animalŽ and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin for supporting the Damascus government. As Washington worked to verify the claim by Syrian opposition activists and rescuers that poison gas was used, Trump said there would be a big price to payŽ for resorting to outlawed weapons of mass destruction. A top White House aide, asked about the possibility of a U.S. missile strike in response, said, I wouldnt take anything off the table.Ž Just over a year ago, Trump ordered dozens of cruise missiles to be “red at a Syrian air base after declaring there was no doubt Assad had choked out the lives of helplessŽ civilians in an attack that used banned gases. White House advisers said at the time that images of hurt children helped spur the president to launch that air strike, and television new shows on Sunday aired similar depictions of suffering young Syrians. Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria,Ž Trump tweeted. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and veri“cation. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!ŽTrump calls out Animal Assad for attack, criticizes PutinBy JONATHAN LEMIREASSOCIATED PRESS RADIATION | 5 TOWER | 5 TRUMP | 5NEW YORK „ A raging “re that tore through a 50th-”oor apartment at Trump Tower killed a man inside and sent ”ames and thick, black smoke pouring from windows of the presidents namesake skyscraper. New York Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said the cause of Saturdays blaze is not yet known but the apartment was virtually entirely on “reŽ when “re“ghters arrived after 5:30 p.m. It was a very dif“cult “re, as you can imagine,Ž Nigro told reporters outside the building in midtown Manhattan. The apartment is quite large.Ž Todd Brassner, 67, who was in the apartment, was taken to a hospital and died a short time later, the New York Police Department said. Property records obtained by The Associated Press indicate Brassner was an art dealer who had purchased his unit in 1996. Of“cials said four “re“ghters also suffered minor injuries. An investigation is ongoing. Shortly after news of the “re broke, President Donald Trump, who was in Washington, tweeted: Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very con“ned (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!Ž Asked if that assessment was accurate, Nigro said, Its a well-built building. The upper ”oors, the residence ”oors, are not sprinklered.Ž Fire sprinklers were not required in New York City high-rises when Trump Tower was completed in 1983. Subsequent updates to the building code required commercial skyscrapers to install the sprinklers retroactively, but owners of older residential high-rises are not required to install sprinklers unless the building undergoes major renovations. Some “re-safety advocates pushed for a requirement that older apartment buildings be retro“tted with sprinklers when New York City passed a law requiring them in new residential highrises in 1999, but of“cials in the administration of then-mayor Rudy Giuliani said that would be too expensive.

Lets say the car is worth $12,000, and you owe $15,000. That would leave you $3,000 short. The bank holds the title, so unless you give them the payoff amount of $15,000 youre not getting the title. The easiest and simplest way would be if someone buys the car for $12,000, and you had $3,000 on hand to make up the difference. If you dont have the money to make up the difference, you could go to a local bank or credit union and borrow the remaining $3,000. I really hate debt, but being $3,000 in the hole is a lot better than being $15,000 in the hole. Then, you could turn around and quickly pay back the $3,000 you borrowed. Youd give the total amount owed to the bank, they would give you the title, and you would sign it over to the new owner. Hope this helps! „ DaveStop spending completely?Dear Dave, My mom and dad are following your advice, and they are working hard to get out of debt. I was wondering, is it okay to buy things while youre paying off the debt you already have? „ Leslie Dear Leslie, Im glad youre paying attention to the “nances around your house. Of course, there are some things you must have. We call these necessities.Ž Most things are not necessities, though. If your air conditioning breaks down, or you have car repairs, those are things you must spend money on to “x. Things like new furniture, vacations, and eating at restaurants are not necessities. Theyre things you might want, but theyre not necessary „ especially when youre trying to pay off debt. I always recommend people take a hard look at their priorities, and remember theres a difference between wanting something and needing something to survive. It can be hard, and it may mean everyone has to go without a few things they want for a while. But if your parents are serious about getting out of debt, theyll do it. And it really wont take all that long. Great question, Leslie! „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored seven best-selling books, including The Total Money Makeover.

But fostering more uncertainty, the presidents top economic advisers offered mixed messages Sunday as to the best approach with China, which has threatened to retaliate if Washington follows through with its proposed tariffs, even as Trump emphasized his bond with Chinese President Xi Jinping. President Xi and I will always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade,Ž Trump wrote. China will take down its Trade Barriers because it is the right thing to do. Taxes will become Reciprocal & a deal will be made on Intellectual Property. Great future for both countries!Ž But Trump did not explain why, amid a week of economic saber-rattling between the two countries that shook global markets, he felt con“dent a deal could be made. The president made “xing the trade imbalance with China a centerpiece of his presidential campaign, where he frequently used incendiary language to describe how Beijing would rapeŽ the U.S. economically. But even as Trump cozied up to Xi and pressed China for help with derailing North Koreas nuclear ambitions, he has ratcheted up the economic pressure and threatened tariffs, a move opposed by many fellow Republicans. The Trump administration has said it is taking action as a crackdown on Chinas theft of U.S. intellectual property. The U.S. bought more than $500 billion in goods from China last year and now is planning or considering penalties on some $150 billion of those imports. The U.S. sold about $130 billion in goods to China in 2017 and faces a potentially devastating hit to its market there if China responds in kind. China has pledged to counterattack with great strengthŽ if Trump decides to follow through on his latest threat to impose tariffs on an additional $100 billion in Chinese goods „ after an earlier announcement that targeted $50 billion. Beijing also declared that the current rhetoric made negotiations impossible, even as the White House suggested that the tariff talk was a way to spur China to the bargaining table. The new White House economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said Sunday that a coalition of the willingŽ „ including Canada, much of Europe and Australia „ was being formed to pressure China and that the U.S. would demand that the World Trade Organization, an arbiter of trade disputes, be stricter on Beijing. And he said that although the U.S. hoped to avoid taking action, Trump was not bluf“ng.Ž This is a problem caused by China, not a problem caused by President Trump,Ž Kudlow said on Fox News Sunday.Ž But he also downplayed the tariff threat as part of the process,Ž suggested on CNN that the impact would be benignŽ and said he was hopeful that China would enter negotiations. Kudlow, who started his job a week ago after his predecessor, Gary Cohn, quit over the tariff plan, brushed aside the possibility of economic repercussions. I dont think theres any trade war in sight,Ž Kudlow told Fox.Amid trade fight, Trump says China will do the right thingBy JONATHAN LEMIREASSOCIATED PRESS CHINATOPIX VIA APChinese workers stand in front of a loaded cargo ship docked at a port in Qingdao in east Chinas Shandong province, Sunday. 2 0 1 8 0 4 0 9 w i r e 0 2 p d f 1 0 8 A p r 1 8 2 2 : 2 8 : 4 5

The Sun /Monday, April 9, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 WORLD BERLIN „ Six people were detained in connection with what police and prosecutors allege was a plan to carry out an extremist attack on Berlins half-marathon Sunday, German authorities said. There were isolated indications that those arrested, aged between 18 and 21 years, were participating in the preparation of a crime in connection with this event,Ž prosecutors and police wrote in a joint statement. Berlin police tweeted that six people were detained in cooperation with the citys prosecutors of“ce. The German daily Die Welt “rst reported that police foiled a plot to attack race spectators and participants with knives. The main suspect allegedly knew Anis Amri, a Tunisian who killed 12 people and injured dozens more when he drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin in December 2016, Die Welt reported. One of the apartments Berlin police raided before the race started Sunday was also searched after the Christmas market attack, the newspaper said. Special police forces detained four men in connection with the race plot, the paper said „ different from the six that police reported. Die Welt reported that the main suspect, who was not identi“ed, had prepared two knives to use in the attack. It also wrote that in one of the searched apartments, dogs trained to “nd explosives barked when they were taken into the dwellings basement. The local daily Tagesspiegel reported that the main suspect had been under observation for two weeks around the clock. After a foreign intelligence service tipped off German authorities that he was planning to attack the half-marathon, police raided apartments and two vehicles in the Charlottenburg and Neukoelln districts of the city. The half-marathon was being guarded by some 630 police of“cers, German news agency dpa reported.Police say 6 detained in foiled plot to attack Berlin raceBy KIRSTEN GRIESHABERASSOCIATED PRESS PAUL ZINKEN/DPA VIA APPolice guard during the half marathon run in Berlin, Sunday. Abbas says he wont return to Gaza unless Hamas cedes controlRAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) „ Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says that unless he gets full control over the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, including the groups weapons, he will not be responsible for what goes onŽ there. Abbas comments late Sunday dealt another blow to months of U.S.-backed Egyptian efforts to negotiate a deal that would sideline the Islamic militant Hamas and enable Abbas self-rule government to return to Gaza. Hamas seized Gaza from forces loyal to Abbas in 2007. Recent talks between Abbas and his rivals failed, mainly because Hamas refuses to disarm. This comes as tensions are rising on the Gaza-Israel border, with Hamas leading mass protests to try to break an Israeli-Egyptian border blockade. Abbas told leaders of his Fatah movement he has informed Egypt of his demands and is waiting to hear back.French PM: No backing down from reforms amid rail strikesPARIS (AP) „ French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe says the government wont back down in the face of rail strikes that are crippling travel in France. Philippe said in an interview published by French newspaper Le Parisien as a new round of strikes began Sunday that he receives daily messages from supporters telling him to go the whole way and thats what were going to do.Ž Unions are planning periodic two-day strikes through June to try to counter the French governments plans to abolish a bene“ts system that allows train drivers and other workers to have jobs for life. Of“cials say one in “ve high-speed trains, one in three suburban trains and three of four trains with international service are expected to be operating on Monday. Periodic strikes also are hitting Air France.Macedonia: Main opposition party files no-confidence motionSKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) „ Macedonias main opposition party has “led a non-con“dence motion that blames the left-wing government for crime, growing corruption and economic stagnation. Lawmakers are expected to debate the motion on Wednesday. Introduced by the conservative VMRO-DPMNE party on Sunday, the measure has little chance of winning approval in Macedonias 120-member parliament, where it and its allies control 53 seats. The conservatives motion accuses the coalition Cabinet of Prime minister Zoran Zaev of having no capacityŽ to run the country. It states: The government has wasted 10 months.... Pensioners, employees, farmers, social workers, young people and many others are complaining.Ž26,000 evacuated in west German town for WWII bomb removalBERLIN (AP) „ More than 26,000 people have been evacuated in the western German town of Paderborn so bomb specialists could remove a World War II-era bomb discovered during construction work. In addition to people leaving their homes, two hospitals, a university and several nursing homes had to be evacuated. Specialists defused the 1.8 ton heavy British bomb on Sunday, more than a week after it was found by construction workers in a garden, only 31 inches under the ground. The German news agency dpa reported that more than 1,000 “re“ghters, police and emergency personnel were involved in the evacuation. Even more than 70 years after the end of the war, bombs and other munitions still turn up regularly during construction work in Germany „ a testament to the ferocity of World War II. WORLD NEWS BRIEFSClub Ad #23 Herniated disc impinging on the spinal nerve, causing pain Bone spur impinging on spinal nerves Bulge of the spinal cordSpinal cordCompression fractures View of Lower SpineƒAnd How Many People May Have Found A Way To Beat ItWhy Back Pain & Sciatica Might Be e Most Crippling Condition Known to Man Do You Have Any of the Following Symptoms? Lets face it... If the pain hasnt gone away by now, its not likely to disappear on its own. Having severe back pain caused by a herniated disc can feel like a crippling condition. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. Its almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You cant remember the last time you even had a restful night of sleep. Finally, theres a treatment to conquer back and leg pain without dangerous medications or painful surgery. When cushions in your back joints, called discs, get injured or wear out, they begin to degenerate and cause pain. Bulging and herniations begin to form, pressing on the nerve roots.Before You Have To Go Under The Knifeƒ You should seriously consider a less invasive approach called Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. This treatment is having a profound eect on patients suering with pain. Unlike the cutting type of laser seen in movies, and used in medical procedures, Deep Tissue Laser Therapy penetrates the surface of the skin with a pleasant warming sensation. My name is Dr. Laura Korman, and I understand what it feels like to live in pain, because I see it every day. Ive seen hundreds of people with disc herniations, back pain and sciatica -patients who were once told surgery was the only option --leave my oce pain-free.

As part of that purpose, Ive acquired state-of-the-art technology to help local residents like you nally get rid of your pain.Finally, You Have An Option Other Than Drugs Or Surgery Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has been tested for 40 years, had over 2000 papers published on it, and been shown to aid in damaged tissue regeneration, decrease inammation, relieve pain, and boost the immune system. This means that there is a good chance Deep Tissue Laser Therapy could be your pain solution, allowing you to live a more active lifestyle. What this means for you is that in just a matter of weeks, you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again. Professional athletes like Tiger Woods, and team members of the New England Patriots, rely upon laser therapy to treat their sports-related injuries. These guys use the laser for one reason onlyƒ. It Promotes Rapid Healing Of The Injured TissuesBefore the FDA would clear Laser Therapy for human use, they wanted to see proof that it worked. This led to two landmark studies. The rst study showed that patients who had Laser Therapy had 53% better improvement than those who had a placebo. The second study showed patients who used the Laser Therapy had less pain, and more range of motion, days after treatment. If Laser Therapy can help these patients, it can help you too. Its time for you to nd out if Deep Tissue Laser Therapy will be your sciatic pain solution. For the rst 25 callers only Im running a new patient special for those with herniated discs or sciatica.

Page 4 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 9, 2018 STATE-BY-STATE Her blonde hair tied back in a ponytail. Steam rising with every breath. Kaitlyn Kiely pushes a racing wheelchair lled with three 50pound bags of salt through the cold streets of Boston. She runs mostly, but she also walks. She has miles to go and a promise to keep. On Monday, Kiely will run all 26 miles of the Boston Marathon course„ one week early „ fullling a pledge she made to her boyfriend Matt Wetherbee last year after she ran the race for the rst time. Kiely, a 30-year-old graduate of Northern Valley Regional High School at Old Tappan, N.J., promised Wetherbee that the two would run the race together … no mean feat, considering Wetherbee is paralyzed. Two years ago, one week before Wetherbee was to get on one knee to pop the big question, he suered a catastrophic accident. He fell head-rst into a gym wall while playing league basketball with friends, a freak accident that would leave him paralyzed from the shoulders down. So, every day, as she has done for months, Kiely lifts the bags of salt, places them into the threewheeled black and yellow racing chair and pushes on in preparation for the race. It has been too cold for Wetherbee to sit in the chair, so the 150 pounds of salt will have to do until race day. She pushes the chair and the salt, sometimes more than 15 miles and some days up Heartbreak Hill. Its more than just the name of the toughest uphill section of the Boston Marathon course for Kiely. Sometimes its about her and Wetherbee. People tell me Im crazy,Ž Kiely said. Im told Im the rst female to run the marathon route pushing an adult male. Im preparing.Ž On Monday, the couple, along with friends and strangers who have promised to join them, will kick o their race at 9 a.m. from Hopkington, where the ocial race will begin a week later. The race, Kiely said, is unnished business she must see to the end. So, as she pushes the 150 pounds of salt in the chair days before the event, she listens to music or digital books to be distracted. It doesnt always work. Some days, as she runs, her thoughts are on her boyfriend and their life before and after the accident. Kiely and Wetherbee did not qualify to run the ocial Boston Marathon on April 16. Unlike most races, runners must qualify to participate. The couple was told six duo teams, the maximum allowed, had already made the cut. Thats OK, Kiely said. If the Boston Athletic Association wont let us in, we will run it anyway,Ž she said. Cant stop us.ŽHIGHLIGHT: MASSACHUSETTSA loving push for a paralyzed boyfriendAlbina SportelliBergen Record USA TODAY NETWORK NEW JERSEY Kaitlyn Kiely pushes Matt Wetherbee as they train to run the Boston Marathon route.COURTESY OF KAITLYN KIELYALABAMAMontgomery: Gov.

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) „ The torso armor Russell Crowe wore for his Oscar-winning role in GladiatorŽ has eclipsed expectations at a Sydney auction, selling for 125,000 Australian dollars ($96,000). Sothebys Australia had estimated that the stunt cuirass worn in the 2000 blockbuster would fetch between AU$20,000 and AU$30,000. But much of the movie memorabilia auctioned Saturday by the Australia-based New Zealander as part of his divorce settlement exceeded expectations. A cheerful Crowe, who turned 54 on Saturday, made an appearance after a woman sang Happy Birthday and the crowd gave him three cheers immediately before Lot 31, a violin by Leandro Bislach, sold for AU$135,000. The violin was the most expensive sale in the early part of the night and is likely to bring the highest price of the auction.ODD NEWS Russell Crowes Gladiator armor sells for $96K at auction664-foot tower Saturday. Trumps family has an apartment on the top ”oors of the 58-story building, but he has spent little time in New York since taking of“ce. The headquarters of the Trump Organization is on the 26th ”oor. Nigro said “re“ghters and Secret Service members checked on the condition of Trumps apartment. About 200 “re“ghters and emergency medical service workers responded to the “re, he said. Some residents said they didnt get any noti“cation from building management to evacuate. Lalitha Masson, a 76-year-old resident, called it a very, very terrifying experience.Ž Masson told The New York Times that she did not receive any announcement about leaving, and that when she called the front desk no one answered. When I saw the television, I thought we were “nished,Ž said Masson, who lives on the 36th floor with her husband, Narinder, who is 79 and has Parkinsons disease. She said she started praying because she felt it was the end. I called my oldest son and said goodbye to him because the way it looked everything was falling out of the window, and it reminded me of 9/11,Ž Masson said.TOWERFROM PAGE 1 immediately shut a project down, and will not hesitate to do so if their safety is threatened, Ruggles said. Hanford of“cials issued a report in late March that said a total of 42 Hanford workers inhaled or ingested radioactive particles from demolition of the Plutonium Finishing Plant when they were exposed during contamination events in June and December of last year. Radioactive contamination was also found outside plant of“ces and inside two dozen vehicles, the report said. Seven workers homes were checked for radioactive contamination, with none found, the report said. The report concluded Hanford of“cials placed too much reliance on air-monitoring systems that failed to pick up the spread of radioactive particles. Managers of the private contractor performing the demolition work for the federal government were also caught between maintaining safety and trying to make progress toward project deadlines, according to the report. Risk escalated as walls of the plutonium plant were knocked down and the rubble was stored in piles. Fixatives sprayed on the rubble to keep radioactive particles from blowing away may not have been effective, the report said. In addition, the state Health Department found very small amounts of airborne radioactive contamination near Highway 240 in the past year that could have come from the plant demolition 10 miles away. The amounts of radiation that have escaped are considered too small by state experts to pose a health risk. All the contamination was found on lands that are closed to the public. Hanford was created during the Manhattan Project in World War II and made the plutonium for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, that effectively ended the war. The Plutonium Finishing Plant was constructed a few years later, and helped process most of the plutonium for the nations nuclear arsenal. The plant took liquid plutonium and shaped it into hockey puck-sized disks for use in nuclear warheads. Demolition on the plant began in late 2016. Carpenter complained that the Energy Department did not act quickly to contain the contamination after the June incident in which radioactive particles escaped and traces were found inside 31 workers. Eleven more workers were found to be contaminated after the December incident, which prompted the government to shut down demolition. Carpenter expected there would be more incidents of radiation escaping into the environment. Hanford is a very contaminated site that has lots of old facilities that are getting older,Ž Carpenter said. Thats a bad combination.Ž The Washington Department of Ecology, which along with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulates Hanford cleanup, said the two agencies will not yet allow demolition work to resume at the plant. Were not convinced that Energy has adequate safeguards or monitoring in place to ensure safe operations,Ž the Ecology Department said in a press release. This clearly is unacce ptable for worker and public health and safety.Ž The state Health Department said there is presently no threat to public health from the releases. However, we are concerned if work resumes without better controls, a risk to the public may develop,Ž the agency said in a recent letter to Hanford managers.RADIATIONFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis May 13, 2017, photo shows a portion of the Plutonium Finishing Plant on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation near Richland, Wash. Saturdays attack took place in a rebel-held town near Damascus amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce. Syrian activists, rescuers and medics said a poison gas attack in Douma killed at least 40 people, with families found suffocated in their houses and shelters. The reports could not immediately be independently veri“ed. The developments come as Trump has moved to dramatically scale back U.S. goals in Syria, pushing for a quick military withdrawal despite resistance from many of his national security advisers. Trump has given no formal order to pull out the 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria or offered a public timetable other than to say the U.S. will withdraw as soon as the remaining Islamic State “ghters can be vanquished. But Trump has signaled to his advisers that, ideally, he wants all troops out within six months. Images released by the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets, a volunteer organization, show children lying on the ground motionless and foaming at the mouth. The Assad government, in a statement posted on the state-run news agency SANA, denied responsibility. Trump was briefed about the attack by his chief of staff, John Kelly, of“cials said. Trumps homeland security adviser, Thomas Bossert, noted the timing of the suspected chemical attack „ almost a year to the day of the U.S. missile strikes. This isnt just the United States. This is one of those issues on which every nation, all peoples, have all agreed and have agreed since World War II, its an unacceptable practice,Ž Bossert said. Asked about the potential for an American missile strike in response, Bossert said: I wouldnt take anything off the table. These are horrible photos. Were looking into the attack at this point.Ž Trump was to meet with his senior military leadership on Monday, the same day his new national security adviser, John Bolton, assumes his post. Bolton has previously advocated signi“cant airstrikes against Syria. Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday deemed it a likely chemical attackŽ and reiterated Trumps threat that consequences would be coming for those responsible. We condemn in the strongest possible terms the assault on innocent lives, including children,Ž Pence tweeted. The Assad regime & its backers MUST END their barbaric behavior.Ž Trumps decision to single out Putin in a tweet appeared noteworthy because Trump long has been reluctant to personally criticize the Russian leader. Even as the White House, after some delay, imposed tough new sanctions on Russia in the wake of its U.S. election meddling and suspected poisoning of a former spy on British soil, Trump left it to others in his administration to deliver the rebukes to Moscow. Last month, Trump called Putin and, against the counsel of his advisers, congratulated the Russian president on his re-election and invited him to the White House. On Sunday, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, urged Trump to ramp up the pressure and the sanctions on the Russian government, because, without the support of Russia, I do not believe that Assad would still be in of“ce.Ž Trump also invoked Iran in his series of tweets, further challenging Tehran while signaling he may scuttle its nuclear deal with the West. The president has often laid some blame on his predecessor, Barack Obama, for Assads continued grip on power after years of civil war. Obama said in 2012 that Syrias use of chemical weapons would be a red lineŽ that would change his decision-making on intervening in the war and have enormous consequences.Ž After such an attack in 2013 killed hundreds outside Damascus, American ships in the Mediterranean were poised to launch missiles. But Obama pulled back after key U.S. ally Britain, as well as Congress, balked. He opted for a Russian-backed proposal that was supposed to remove and eliminate Syrias chemical weapons stockpiles. If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!Ž Trump tweeted from the White House. Questions about the administrations possible response reverberated throughout Washington in the hours after the attack. Its a de“ning moment in his presidencyŽ that comes as Assad sees the U.S. determination to stay in Syria waning,Ž said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., If he doesnt follow through and live up to that tweet, hes going to look weak in the eyes of Russia and Iran,Ž Graham said. You need to follow through with that tweet. Show a resolve that Obama never did to get this right.Ž Graham and Bossert were on ABCs This Week,Ž and Collins appeared on CNNs State of the Union.ŽTRUMPFROM PAGE 1 SYRIAN CIVIL DEFENSE WHITE HELMETS VIA APThis image released early Sunday, April 8, 2018 by the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets, shows a child receiving oxygen through respirators following an alleged poison gas attack in the rebelheld town of Douma, near Damascus, Syria.

(N) ENTERTAINMENT NEW YORK „ John Krasinskis A Quiet PlaceŽ made a thunderous debut at the box of“ce, opening with $50 million in ticket sales and rumbling to the years secondbest weekend after Black Panther,Ž according to studio estimates Sunday. The Paramount Pictures thriller far exceeded expectations to land one of the top opening weekends for a horror release. It marks an unlikely breakthrough for Krasinski, the former Of“ceŽ star many associate more with inter-of“ce romance and deadpan expressions than silent cinematic frights. Krasinskis third directing effort, which stars himself and wife Emily Blunt is about a family in a future dystopia populated by violent creatures with extremely acute hearing. But it was far from the only success story on the weekend, which also saw Universals R-rated comedy BlockersŽ open solidly with $21.4 million, Steven Spielbergs virtual-reality adventure Ready Player OneŽ dip only 40 percent with $25.1 million in its second weekend and the period docudrama ChappaquiddickŽ beat expectations with a debut of $6.2 million. In limited release, Wes Andersons Isle of Dogs,Ž Lynne Ramsays You Were Never Really HereŽ and Andrew Haighs Lean on PeteŽ all did well, too. For one weekend, at least, just about everything Hollywood could throw at moviegoers worked. The weekend was up 35.3 percent from last year. But nothing approached the runaway success of A Quiet Place.Ž Hollywood had forecast closer to $30 million for the “lm, which cost just $17 million to make. Yet A Quiet PlaceŽ rode strong buzz from its SXSW premiere in March, good reviews (97 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and moviegoers continuing thirst for horror. We always knew we had something special from the “rst screenings. But you dont get to a number like this without breaking free of the genre. I think this is about great storytelling,Ž said Kyle Davies, head of domestic distribution for Paramount, who heaped praise on Krasinski. Were looking forward to what else he has up his sleeve.Ž A Quiet PlaceŽ is also a badly needed hit for Paramount, which has struggled mightily at the box of“ce in recent years while its ownership has sometimes been in limbo. Earlier this week, CBS Corp. submitted a bid to acquire Viacom Inc., Paramounts parent company. Though greenlit under the previous leadership, A Quiet PlaceŽ is the “rst major success under Jim Gianopulos, who took over as studio head a year ago. The opening is Paramounts biggest since 2016s Star Trek BeyondŽ and its best nonfranchise opening since 2013s World War Z.Ž BlockersŽ also heralds a “lmmaking breakthrough aided by an enthusiastic response from SXSW audiences. The “lm, which cost about $21 million to make, is the directorial debut of Kay Cannon, a writer whose credits include 30 RockŽ and Pitch Perfect.Ž Blockers,Ž starring Leslie Mann, John Cena and Ike Barinholtz as parents trying to prevent their daughters from losing their virginity, shrugged off a recent slump for comedies in theaters. Kay Cannon knocked it out of the park,Ž said Jim Orr, distribution head for Universal, who credited Cannon with inverting the double standardsŽ of the teen sex comedy. We could not be more pleased.Ž Despite the competition, Warner Bros. Ready Player OneŽ held well, bringing its domestic total to $96.9 million. But its fared even better overseas, where Spielbergs latest has already grossed $294.4 million. Its done especially well in China, where the “lm has made $161.3 million in two weeks. Continuing ticket sales also pushed Ryan Cooglers Black PantherŽ further into the record books. The Marvel blockbuster now ranks third all-time domestically with $665.4 million, trailing only AvatarŽ and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.Ž Over the weekend, Black PantherŽ passed 1997s Titanic,Ž which grossed $659.4 million, though accounting for in”ation would put it above $1 billion. John Currans Chappaquiddick,Ž about the 1969 Ted Kennedy scandal, opened with $6.2 million in 1,560 theaters. The “lm, starring Jason Clarke as Kennedy, was acquired by Byron Allens Entertainment Studios at last falls Toronto International Film Festival. Originally planned for an awards season release, the move to spring seemed to give ChappaquiddickŽ a better chance to stand out. In its third weekend, Fox Searchlights Isle of DogsŽ grossed $4.6 million in 554 theaters. LD Entertainments The Miracle Season,Ž about an inspirational season for a girls high-school volleyball team, opened with $4.1 million. With one of the best pertheater performances of the year, Amazons You Were Never Really Here,Ž starring Joaquin Phoenix, opened with $129,911 in three theaters. A24s Lean on Pete,Ž with Charlie Plummer, debuted with $50,118 on four screens. Everyone kind of won this weekend,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. This is the kind of weekend that Hollywood should try to recreate over and over again.

The Sun /Monday, April 9, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I have never gotten the u vaccine. Years ago, it was believed to be too dangerous for anyone with an autoimmune condition. They said that the body could not handle the vaccine and that it was actually dangerous to receive it. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I value your knowledge and opinion. Please tell me if that's true. I had the u in 1993 and have not been ill with anything but a cold since. I was not hospitalized in 1993. „ I.D.C. ANSWER: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a condition where the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland, in the neck. The thyroid level initially increases in the body, but then over time, it decreases. In most, it eventually will come back to normal, but people require treatment with thyroid hormone, often for years. I don't agree with the advice you received about the u vaccine. The clearest reason not to give a u vaccine is if people have a severe allergy to any of the components of the vaccine. People who have had Guillain-Barre syndrome within six weeks of a previous inuenza vaccine generally are not vaccinated again. Hashimoto's is not a reason to avoid the u shot. 2017-2018 has been a severe season for inuenza, and while I am glad you haven't had the u in many years, I still recommend the vaccine every year. DEAR DR. ROACH: If a person who is 75 or older has high blood pressure „ say, 175/80 „ in what circumstances would you suggest not taking any hypertensive drugs to lower pressure (to 130/80 or less)? Aren't there some fragile people who require higher blood pressure to meet the body's demands? „ R.I. ANSWER: It used to be the case that older people with high blood pressure were not treated. In fact, the term "essential hypertension" (which now means "high blood pressure with no identiable cause") initially was used to indicate that high blood pressure was essential for adequate blood ow. However, study after study has shown that older people with systolic blood pressure above 160 can have a dramatic reduction in the risk of stroke with treatment. It certainly is true that the blood pressure should be brought down slowly and judiciously. By using low doses of medication at rst, we can reduce the symptoms of having too low a blood pressure. In people whose blood pressure is chronically very high „ such as a diastolic (that's the second number) pressure over 110 „ the blood ow to the brain may no longer be regulated properly, so the blood pressure is brought down very slowly indeed. There have been many situations where what was thought to be common wisdom was upended by the results of carefully done, large clinical trials. How a largescale trial applies to a given individual is not always obvious, and it still requires a skilled clinician with knowledge of both the individual patient and an understanding of the biology of the condition. It would be a very unusual situation for me not to recommend treating a blood pressure that high. READERS: The booklet on restless leg syndrome and nighttime cramps oers more tips.

It was always her plan to go to a school away from our small town, and I supported that decision. However, six months ago she started dating her rst real boyfriend. His parents have oered to pay all expenses if the two of them live in an apartment and go to school at a college nearby. Financially, this would be very helpful for my daughter, but I'm worried that moving in with a boy at such a young age would be a mistake, and she wouldn't get the full college experience. She has a scholarship for free room and board at a college three hours away. What do you think I should encourage her to do? „ Student's Mom In Missouri DEAR STUDENT'S MOM: Forgive me for seeming negative, but what if the romance sours? Your daughter has earned her scholarship. Three hours' distance isn't insurmountable. They can still see each other if they wish. But the separation will allow them more time to concentrate on their studies as well as enjoy the full college experience. DEAR ABBY: My parents smoke weed and do other drugs, and I have no idea what to do. They scream and yell at us daily. There are four of us. I don't know if we should turn them in so we can live in a better environment or just accept it. I need your opinion. „ Anonymous Girl In Indiana DEAR ANONYMOUS GIRL: No child should be subjected to this. It's unhealthy for you and your siblings to be living with drug-addicted adults who are unable to control their emotions.

Page 10 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 9, 2018 NATION INDIANAPOLIS „ A knife-wielding man injured three people in an attack in downtown Indianapolis after being told to stop playing a siren on a bullhorn, authorities said Sunday. James Anderson Jr., 28; Edward Lee Atkins, 26; and Johnny Gilson, 46, were injured in the attack Saturday afternoon on the American Legion Mall and outside the Central Library located across the street, a police report said. Gary Madison, 57, of Indianapolis faces three preliminary charges of battery by means of a deadly weapon, jail records showed. Four people, including Madison, were hospitalized after the attack, two in critical condition and two in serious condition, Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith said. Their medical conditions Sunday were not clear, but a police report said Madison was being held at the Marion County Jail. Taylor George told The Indianapolis Star she was with a group of family and friends, enjoying a sunny day, when the man rode up on a bicycle, got off and began playing a siren on a bullhorn. George said she and a female friend asked him to stop. She said her friend has epilepsy and worried the noise would trigger a seizure. George said no one in the group knew the man, but they had seen him downtown before. He has been down here before with the bullhorn, but usually he uses itŽ to talk, George said. After being told to stop, the man immediately pulled out a knife and tried to stab her and her friend, George said. George, who is pregnant, said the blade came within inches of her stomach. As the two dodged the man, George said, he threw his bike at them and other members in the group. He pulled his knife out of his pocket and when he couldnt get us with the knife, he threw his bike at us. And thats when my family members and friends tried to stop him,Ž George said. Four men in her group rushed the suspect. One of her friends was stabbed in the stomach and two in their arms, she said. The suspect stabbed himself in the abdomen accidentally, George said. After the “ght, another member of the group held the suspect until police arrived, she said. I was really scared,Ž George said. I thought I was going to get stabbed.Ž4 hurt after knife-wielding man attacks Indianapolis crowdASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT VIA APGary Madison of Indianapolis is seen in an undated booking photo released Sunday, by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. NEW YORK „ After years of neglect and a winter of heating failures, New York Citys massive public housing system is “nally getting attention from politicians, who are simultaneously promising a “x and using the crisis to blame and bludgeon their rivals in an election year. Whats not clear is whether the new attention will translate into better conditions for tenants of the system, which holds more people than the cities of St. Louis or Cleveland. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency last week at the New York City Housing Authority, saying its 400,000 tenants have had to endure gaps in basic maintenance that have left some units barely “t for habitation. It is disgusting,Ž he told a business group Thursday. In a series of visits to apartments with peeling paint and crumbling plaster, the Democrat, a former U.S. housing secretary under President Bill Clinton, also assailed the authority as grossly mismanaged. Cuomo said he was appointing a monitor to oversee repairs, saying simply giving the cityrun system money to “x up buildings would be like throwing it out the window.Ž Some tenant groups, which have “led lawsuits over heating breakdowns, missed lead paint inspections and other issues, applauded. But Cuomos actions were also widely seen as a swipe at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a fellow Democrat who has been locked in an intensely personal and seemingly intractable political feud with the governor for years. U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, a Republican, also jumped into the fray, saying he would require the Housing Authority to get prior federal approval before expenditure out of its capital fund. We dont want to do it that way, but they forced us into doing it that way until they become more responsible,Ž Carson told The Wall Street Journal. Sex and the CityŽ actress Cynthia Nixon, who recently launched a campaign to unseat Cuomo as governor, weighed in. She toured a Brooklyn public housing complex for one of her “rst campaign events. A close ally of de Blasio, Nixon said the state wasnt doing enough. Its not just a matter of how broken and crumbling everything is, its literally about how its killing the residents here,Ž Nixon said. She said Cuomo, who she would face in the Democratic primary, was more interested in making de Blasio look bad than getting things done. De Blasio, meanwhile, blamed everybody: the federal government, state government and past mayors. He said Thursday during a news conference at a Queens Housing Authority complex that of“cials have walked away from the project for decades. The news conference, where de Blasio announced the completion of roof work at 65 Housing Authority buildings, was the third visit to one of the Authoritys developments by a high-pro“le politician in a week. Joanne Campbell, the tenants association head at the Albany Houses, which had been the site of Nixons visit, said workers tidied up the grounds for the occasion. Normally, she said, therell be bedbug mattresses out there for months.Ž Campbell was skeptical the sudden spotlight on the Authority would lead to improvements. Nothings going to change,Ž she said. This is just to get votes.Ž New York Citys public housing system is by far the nations largest. Tenants pay an average of $522 a month in rent, with HUD subsidizing the rest. Their average family income of $24,424 would make it dif“cult to “nd housing anywhere else in the city. There are 212,510 families on the waiting list for an apartment „ a testament to the high demand for affordable housing in an ultra-expensive city. Still, some tenants at the Albany Houses said their apartments come with leaks, mold and mice. Regena Orr said she has a leaking pipe within a wall. Every two years, this wall swells, the plaster falls and instead of them repairing the leak “rst, they just come and patch it up,Ž Orr said. Its cheaper for them to just patch it up than go in and change the pipe.Ž This past winter has been a bad one for the Housing Authority. A probe by the citys department of Investigation found in November that apartments were not properly checked for lead paint, despite the fact that of“cials had certi“ed inspections were done. Authority of“cials admitted at a Feb. 6 City Council hearing that about 80 percent of the apartments they manage had experienced heat or hot water outages since Oct. 1. The loss of heat and hot water is a humanitarian crisis, its a state of emergency, its a management failure of the highest magnitude,Ž said City Councilman Ritchie Torres, a Bronx Democrat who grew up in public housing in the 1990s and said hes never seen the system in worse shape than it is now.Politicians blame each other for NYC public housing crisisBy KAREN MATTHEWSASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this March 12, 2018 le photo, New York Gov.

Kimmel apologizes for Melania Trump joke amid Hannity feudNEW YORK (AP) „ Late-night comic Jimmy Kimmel has apologized for a joke about “rst lady Melania Trumps accent and moved to deescalate a feud with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Kimmel says in a Twitter post made Sunday his exchanges with Hannity have been fun but he doesnt want to add to the vitriolŽ of their spat. He says such animosity is harmful to our country.Ž On ABCs Jimmy Kimmel LiveŽ on April 2, Kimmel prodded the “rst ladys reading of a childrens book at the White House Easter egg hunt.

Police Chief William McManus says the of“cer was responding to calls Saturday night about a man assaulting people outside a Walmart. Witnesses pointed the of“cer to a nearby drainage ditch where the chief says the man pulled a knife on the of“cer. The stun gun failed but the of“cer received an electric shock because he was standing in water. The of“cer then pulled his service weapon and shot the man, believed to be homeless, three times. The of“cer wasnt seriously hurt. McManus says hell be on administrative duty pending the outcome of an investigation.Names of 2 Fort Campbell killed in helicopter crash releasedFORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) „ Army of“cials have released the names of two soldiers who were killed when their helicopter crashed during a training mission. Fort Campbell of“cials on Sunday identi“ed the victims as 37-year-old Chief Warrant Of“cer Ryan Connolly and 28-year-old Warrant Of“cer James Casadona. Connolly was an instructor pilot and Casadona was a pilot in the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). Of“cials say in a news release the AH64E Apache helicopter crashed Friday night in a training area at the sprawling Army post that straddles the KentuckyTennessee line. They were the only two people aboard the helicopter. The statement says Connolly joined the Army in 2001 and Casadona joined in 2012. The cause of the crash is under investigation.Ohio company recalls more than 7 tons of BBQ beefHARRISON, Ohio (AP) „ Federal authorities say an Ohio-based food company is recalling more than 14,000 pounds (6,000 kilograms) of pulled barbequed beef products that could be contaminated with rubber. The U.S. agriculture departments Food Safety and Inspection Service reports that J.T.M. Provisions Co. of Harrison had received two consumer complaints of extraneous material contamination. There have been no con“rmed reports of adverse reactions from consuming the products. They come in a sealed plastic tray with a paper sleeve in products labeled Bar-B-Q Sauce With Pulled Beef.Ž Federal authorities say they were produced last September, but they are concerned that some remain frozen in customers refrigerators or freezers.

The service says they should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.Injuries in human-smuggling crash on California highwaySAN DIEGO (AP) „ A horse trailer carrying at least 18 people who entered the country illegally overturned on a Southern California highway just north of the border with Mexico, authorities said. Several people inside the trailer were hurt in the crash Saturday near the town of Campo, with injuries described as moderate and minor. Six patients were hospitalized, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. A witness told the California Highway Patrol that the two-axle trailer being hauled by a pickup truck began to “shtail and eventually tipped onto its right side along northbound Interstate 8. Several people scrambled from the trailer after the crash and many ran away, the newspaper said. No horses were inside. After a search of the area authorities were able to round up most, if not all, involved, said Border Patrol Agent Eduardo Olmos. CHP and Cal Fire reported 18 individuals, while Border Patrol said there were 19; the reason for the discrepancy wasnt immediately known. Border Patrol of“cials said the driver of the pickup had not yet been identi“ed and it was unclear if he or she was in custody. Olmos said it was not yet known where the people made illegal entry into the United States.Police respond to disturbance at juvenile detention facilitySABILLASVILLE, Md. (AP) „ Charges are pending after a disturbance at a juvenile detention facility in western Maryl and in which at least three staffers were assaulted by inmates, authorities said Sunday. Maryland state troopers and local sheriffs deputies were called to the Victor Cullen Center in Frederick County about 11:30 a.m. Sunday. Police established a perimeter, and a Frederick County deputy trained as a negotiator spoke via radio with the juveniles thought to be leading the disturbance. Officials said seven juveniles subsequently surrendered, and that troopers and deputies entered the facility and took an eighth juvenile into custody without incident. Three staff members at the center were taken to area hospitals for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries, state police said. Several others were apparently injured but refused treatment. Of“cials said there was no physical confrontation between responding police and inmates, and that all juveniles were accounted for, with no one escaping from the facility. State police have begun a criminal investigation and said charges are pending. NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFS

By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressTwo of the top four teams in the NHL are guaranteed to be out the playoffs after the second round. Goodbye Nashville or Winnipeg. Goodbye Boston or Tampa Bay. Thanks for playing. Thats the reality under the divisional playoff format that could pit the top two teams in the Eastern and Western Conferences against each other in round 2 after Pittsburgh and Washington were forced into that predicament in back-toback playoffs. Theres not a whole lot of logic there,Ž Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik said. Hows this for logic? If ranking teams 1 through 8 in each conference like the old format that was in place from 1993-94 through 2013, the No. 2 seed is facing the No. 4 seed, 3 versus 7, and 5 versus 6 in the first round in the East and the West this year. A Penguins-Capitals style repeat could happen this year with the Centrals Predators and Jets on a crash course for a second-round showdown and the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning locked into a stacked Atlantic bracket with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Youd think thatd almost be a third-round series kind of thing, but so be it,Ž Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis said. It is what it is. Youre going to have to see a team like that eventually.

Lewis Hamilton profited from Ferraris mishap to finish third behind his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. Both Red Bulls failed, with Max Verstappen retiring moments after Daniel Ricciardo, facilitating Hamiltons transition from ninth on the grid to the podium. It could have been even better for Mercedes. Bottas almost overtook Vettel on the last lap, but Vettel made a crucial blocking move and won by only 0.6 seconds. It was the four-time F1 champions 49th career win on his 200th race start. The last five laps were really difficult,Ž Vettel said. I thought Valtteri would catch me. I nursed the tires and it worked, but only just.Ž Vettel followed up his win at the seasonopening Australian GP two weeks ago by staging a nerve-wracking rearguard.

His plan is to force weak pop ups from the opposing hitters and let his defense do the work. For the most part, his strategy worked Sunday afternoon in a 4-1 win for the Charlotte Stone Crabs over the Fort Myers Miracle. Ive always been a believer of just throwing my fastball until they prove they can hit it,Ž York said. Today I was a little amped up for my (first) start. I was leaving the ball up a little bit in the beginning, but I was just trusting my fastball.Ž York recorded 17 outs in his first start of the season, all of which came by way of a fly out or a strikeout. The righthander induced 15 pop fly outs, including five which were foul balls. He allowed just five hits in the game, one was a pop up which kept carrying for a home run and one was a pop up which shouldve been caught by his outfielder. York gave us a tremendous outing today,Ž acting manager German Melendez. That was fun to watch. Everything he threw was great. All of his stuff was great today.Ž The strong outing was no fluke for York, who had a 0.89 ERA in 11 starts last season between Hudson Valley and Bowling Green. Last year he allowed just 35 hits in 61 innings of work. Yorks counterpart Brady Anderson pitched just as well, except for a hiccup in the fourth inning. Josh Lowe had a lead off single, which he turned into extra bases after stealing second. He later came around to score on a Nate Lowe double, and then Nate scored on a Jesus Sanchez double. Anderson allowed just the two runs on four hits over six innings to take the loss. Mike Mastrobuoni added a pair of insurance runs in the seventh inning with a two-run triple to score Tristan Gray and David Rodriguez. Charlotte reliever Adrian Navas kept the Miracle scoreless while recording seven outs „ the first of which was a groundout immediately following Yorks departure. Spencer Jones picked up his first save with a perfect ninth inning. Through four games this season, Nate and Josh Lowe as well as Robbie Tenerowicz are all hitting .364 or better. The Stone Crabs head on a seven-game road trip following yesterdays victory. Theyll head to Daytona today for a four-game stand before a three-game set against Lakeland beginning Friday. Charlotte returns home on April 17 for a six-game homestand. -Contact Bryan Levine at blevine@sun-herald. com.

Att: 1,597.SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLCharlotte starting pitcher Mikey York helped the Stone Crabs defeat the Miracle 4-1 on Sunday behind 5 ‡ innings of work. Andrew Benintendi hit a fly to left-center that Smith couldnt catch, allowing Betts to score the go-ahead run. Until then, it seemed as if infielder Daniel Robertson and rookie lefty Ryan Yarbrough had the starring roles. Robertson started three rallies, with a pair of infield singles and a walk, and scored three of their runs. And a day after taking the mound for the first time as a pro to pitch the eighth inning, Robertson slid over to make his first professional appearance at first base, covering the final three innings. Yarbrough took over after bullpen dayŽ starter Andrew Kittredge worked the first two innings, and he gave the Rays four strong for what would have been his first big-league win. He got himself into some trouble with three walks but did a good job getting out of his biggest mess. Pitching with a 4-1 lead in the fifth, he loaded the bases with one out but struck out Benintendi, allowed only one run when shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria made a diving stop on a Hanley Ramirez smash and struck out $110 million outfielder J.D. Martinez. There was more to be happy about in a game played on another cold day with a first-pitch temperature of 38, matching the second coolest in franchise history. There was power, such as C.J. Cron getting them even in the second with a homer to center, his first as a Ray. And there was the opposite, as the Rays got one run on a bloop single by Hechavarria and another on a checkswing double by Carlos Gomez while logging four infield hits overall. There was some intrigue, as manager Kevin Cash unexpectedly pinch-hit lefty Joey Wendle for lefty Brad Miller against lefty Bobby Poyner, and it paid off as Wendle tripled off the Green Monster to score Robertson with the Rays sixth run. It was revealed after the game that Miller had tweaked his groin running the bases, and he could be headed for the disabled list. That play got more complicated as Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts slid into the Rays dugout to keep the errantly thrown ball from going out of play, which would have sent Wendle home. Cash challenged the play, though the call stood. But Bogaerts, who had been off to a sizzling start, sustained what the Sox said was a left ankle injury. Centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier, back in the Rays lineup after sitting out Saturday sick, also contributed, tripling in a run in the sixth. The Rays (1-8) left after the game for Chicago, where their cold weather trip continues with a 2:10 matinee against the White Sox, assuming the forecast snow doesnt get in the way.RAYSFrom Page 1I would assume after his year thered be a bigger appetite to do it,Ž Washington general manager Brian MacLellan said. In the past it hasnt affected as many teams as might be required to get that movement. Its basically been us thats been the team thats not benefited from the 1 through 8. But well see what happens this year with a couple more really good teams being beat out in the second round.Ž Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the playoff format is not a burning issue for owners, wasnt discussed by GMs and should be looked at over a long period of time instead of focusing on anomalies.Ž Its worked I think for the most part as we anticipated it would work,Ž Daly said. I do believe in terms of the matchups in the first two rounds of the playoffs, theyre better with this format. Theyre just more intense and more familiar with this format than they were in the old format.Ž Reigniting and creating new rivalries was the goal of this playoff format, which mimics the one in place for most of the 80s and early 90s. Inequities have happened, but so has plenty of drama on Cup runs by the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and the Penguins twice. I think that as a fan, you want to see matchups against rivals,Ž said New Jersey defenseman Ben Lovejoy, who won the Cup with Pittsburgh in 2016. I think that that pits archenemies against each other more often and it can backfire every once in a while. You can get two high seeds playing each other in the first round or the second round and perhaps thats not fair but I think ultimately its good for the game to have heated playoff series against teams that dont like each other and see each other a lot.Ž Heated playoff series make this time of year fun, but Predators versus Jets and Bruins versus Lightning would be just as compelling, if not more so, in the conference finals. Hockey people reluctant to fault the system typically take an approach like Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff, who said Whether the format itself is right or wrong, if you want to win the Cup, you have to find a way to get through this format.Ž The difficult part is the format isnt created equally, making one road to the third round or the Cup Final potentially easier than another. I dont necessarily agree with how it is, but its the way it is,Ž said winger Wayne Simmonds, whose Flyers open against the Penguins. You have to have a mindset that youre going to play teams in your division first and foremost and thats just the way it is.Ž Orpik said players cant wait to revisit the format when the agreement is up, which could be part of the next round of collective bar g ainin g talks. But theres no consensus on what would be better „ a return to 1 through 8, league-wide 1 through 16 or something else. The expected addition of a 32nd team in Seattle could spur change, too. You can play a 1-to16 playoff pool, but I would suggest to you that therell be inequities in that,Ž Predators GM David Poile said, referencing travel among the issues. Pick your poison. I think you change that and you come up with the next idea, youd run into the same thing. ... I dont think theres any exact playoff plan that everybody would say is perfect.Ž Follow Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at https://twitter. com/SWh y noNHLFrom Page 1AP PHOTONashville Predators Viktor Arvidsson (33) celebrates on his knees after scoring on Winnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck (37) during second period NHL hockey action in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Sunday, March 25.

New Prostate Pill Reduces Urge to Pee Especially During the NightMen in clinical trials see dramatic improvements in nighttime bathroom urges and an overall improvement in sexual performance.Kris Stellum National Health Syndicate NHS, Boston MA „ A new prostate pill is helping men across the country regain control of their bladders and their sex lives. Innovus Pharmaceuticals, the company behind the breakthrough, says its key ingredient blocks certain hormones in the body that make your prostate grow. As a result, while taking the pill, your prostate gets smaller and your symptoms disappear. Men say the “ rst things they notice is waking up less for the bathroom and an unexpected boost in sexual performanceŽ says Dr. Bassam Damaj, Director of Science at Innovus. Its why they love the product. While most prostate drugs kill your sex life, our natural pill enhances it. Plus, it solves all the other problems. It will strengthen your stream, end your straining, and relieve the constant urge to urinateŽ. Sensational Improvements in Urinary Control and PerformanceSales for the new pill, which goes by the brand name ProstaGorx are exploding! And thats because ProstaGorx is not a drug. Its something completely different. It uses natural compounds to shrink your prostate and put the brakes on prostate growth. By taking it daily, it helps men regain control of their bladders and escape all of urinary discomfort that can make life miserable.Reverses Prostate GrowthNumerous medical studies reveal that keeping your prostate healthy is vital for avoiding urgent bathroom problems. When your prostate is small, you pee freely, forcefully, and without hesitation. You dont feel any pain, urgency or discomfort. And you feel fully relieved every time you go. But when your prostate swells, you experience just the opposite. And endless battle with annoying enlarged prostate symptoms that can linger for decades! And according to new studies, they will. A staggering 80% of men suffer with them. The most common being weak urinary streams, painful urination, dribbling and leaking, middle of the night bathroom urges, incomplete emptying, and the constant feeling of having to pee.Boosts Sexual Performance According to new research published by the Mayo Clinic, men with large prostate have less sex, lower sex drives, and consider more problems with their erections. In fact 8 out of 10 men with prostate issues end up suffering with ED! Most men have no idea that their prostate can impact their sexual performanceŽ says Dr. Damaj. The prostate gland needs to be healthy to achieve a powerful orgasm. If its enlarged, men can experience serious sexual let downs.ŽHow It WorksProstaGorx uses the same science that makes drugs like Alpha Blockers so effective but since its natural it wont give you any side effects and you wont need a prescription. As you get older your body slowly converts your remaining testosterone into estrogen through a process known as aromatase. Over the years as more testosterone is converted into estrogen, your body becomes imbalanced „ too much estrogen and too little testosterone signals your to produce DHT, a growth hormone 10 times stronger than regular testosterone. Unfortunately, instead of correcting this imbalance, the enormous spike in DHT causes your prostate to grow! As levels of DHT rise, your prostate only gets bigger...pressing hard against your bladder and clamping your urethra shut! The result is painful and persistent prostate problems that will have you living your life around a bathroom. ProstaGorx naturally shrinks your prostate using a key nutrient thats clinically p roven to block DHT. As your levels of DHT begin to fall, your prostate gets smaller and your symptoms vanish.Backed By Stunning ResearchIn a new landmark study, the leading ingredient in ProstaGorx slashed lower urinary tract symptoms by a staggering 81% and was reported to be as effective as the drug Proscar but with virtually zero side effects. And in yet another study boosted prostate health by promoting a healthy libido. Every since I retired my prostate has given me hellŽ says John Manning, 68, of Ohio. But since taking ProstaGorx everything has changed. Ive stopped waking up for the bathroom in the middle of the night. I pee a lot less during the day. And when I do go, my streams are strong and theres no hesitation. And out of nowhere my sex lifes imp roved! Ive tried everything and this is the only thing thats workedŽ. Guaranteed EffectiveProstaGorx is an exciting new prostate pill thats helping men “ nd real relief from prostate problems without any of the negative side effects from drugs. By blocking certain hormones in the body that trigger prostate growth, ProstaGorx naturally shrinks your prostate, relieving your worst symptoms safely. With daily use youll sleep more, pee less, and have much better sex. ProstaGorx is clinically proven to end the urgency and frequency, imp rove urinary ” ow and force, and give you an entirely new level of comfort that makes life easier and much more enjoyable.

No driver has won the opening two races and then failed to win the title since Keke Rosberg in 1982. Bottas, who is fighting to get a new contract for next year, proved a point after a disappointing eighth place in Melbourne. I knew there would be a chance at the end. But it wasnt quite enough,Ž Bottas said. Being second with such a close margin is extremely disappointing.Ž Red Bull had an awful race, with Ricciardo and Verstappen retiring within six laps. In an ironic twist, Red Bulls feeder team Toro Rosso had arguably the result of the day „ with French driver Pierre Gasly driving superbly to finish a career-best fourth. Ferrari totally botched Raikkonens second tire change. A rear wheel was not fitted properly and, in his haste to get back into the race, Raikkonens car ran over and broke a mechanics left leg. A bit sad because one of our mechanics got injured,Ž Vettel said. A mixed day overall.Ž Raikkonen came in for his second change after 36 of 57 laps of the 5.4-kilometer (3.3-mile) desert circuit. He was given the green light to go despite work still continuing on the rear left tire. As the Ferrari driver pulled away, the tire hit the leg of one of the mechanics, knocking him to the ground. The team said the mechanic, named only as Francesco, had sustained a shinbone and fibula fracture. Raikkonens car came to a halt a few meters later and he took off the steering wheel and dejectedly threw it into the cockpit. As he walked back through the team garage, the Finnish driver swiped away a water bottle in frustration. It was a poor error from Ferrari, which was fined 50,000 euros ($61,500) for an unsafe pit release. Ferrari was also fined 5,000 euros for the same error during practice on Friday. As the sun set, drivers prepared on the grid for their showdown under floodlights. Vettel started on the front row with Raikkonen, and Bottas started third. Hamilton was low down after incurring a five-place grid penalty for an unauthorized gearbox change. Raikkonen got passed on the first corner by Bottas, but Vettel held his ground. Verstappen had a more frustrating race. The Dutch driver had done brilliantly to jump from 15th on the grid, and fought with Hamilton on the inside heading into turn one. But he sustained too much damage after puncturing his left rear tire. Moments later, there were heads on hands in the Red Bull garage as Ricciardos race came to an end. He pulled over on the side of the track because of an electrical failure, prompting the safety car to come out. With the VSC on track, Verstappen managed to crawl back into the pits. He resumed the race but abandoned shortly after. A very disappointing weekend,Ž Verstappen said. Feeling sorry for all the fans that support me. Better luck next time in China.Ž Hamilton expertly jumped up three places, passing Sebastian Ocon (Force India), Fernando Alonso (McLaren) and Nico Hulkenberg (Renault). By lap eight of 57, Hamilton was up to fourth and homing in on a 119th career podium. I started ninth so third is not bad at all,Ž Hamilton said. Its damage limitation.Ž V ETTELFrom Page 1AP PHOTOFerrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany celebrates on the podium after winning the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix, at the Formula One Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir, Bahrain, Sunday, April 8, 2018.

By GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressMILWAUKEE „ Chri stian Yelich took some swings in the batting cage but his right oblique was still sore. So the Milwaukee Brewers placed him on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, four days after one of their prized offseason acquisitions got hurt during a 6-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. The move was retroactive to Thursday. The fact I dont remember doing it on a specific swing is probably good news,Ž Yelich said before the Brewers 3-0 loss to the Cubs. Discomfort kind of grew, and as a precaution, to make sure it wasnt worse, we kind of toned it back a little bit. Its really frustrating, you know? Thats the biggest thing.Ž Right-hander Taylor Wiliams was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Yelichs roster spot. Manager Craig Counsell said Yelich reported soreness after hitting over the weekend. So we did an MRI, the MRI is clean,Ž Counsell said. Theres certainly a possibility its (only) 10 days.Ž The outfielder, acquired from Miami, was hitting .385 with one homer and five RBIs. Yelich and Lorenzo Cain, who returned to Brewers as a free agent after seven seasons in Kansas City, came to Milwaukee on back-toback days in January. Yelich said he did not suffer a setback. We were trying to push it to make it in the time frame to stay off the DL, and it just wasnt happening. So take the extra time, get it right, and hopefully be good to go soon,Ž he said. The Brewers are well prepared to withstand a short-term injury to one of their core players. Stocked with outfield depth, Milwaukee can give more playing time to slugger Domingo Santana. Jesus Aguilar also could get more time at first base, too, with starter Eric Thames able to play the outfield. Were going to miss (Yelichs) left-handed bat, I think thats the big thing,Ž Counsell said. But were equipped that way roster-wise obviously have another really capable player get some playing time.Ž Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, April 9, 2018 / The Sun adno=50534109the last hole to leave Reed no room for error. Reed never flinched throughout a raucous afternoon at Augusta National. Clinging to a oneshot lead, his 25-foot putt down the slippery slope on the 18th green ran 3 feet by the hole as Reed pressed down both hands, begging it to stop. From there, the 27-year-old Texan calmly rolled in the par putt for a 1-under 71 and a one-shot victory. To have to par the last hole to win my first major, it definitely felt right,Ž Reed said from Butler cabin, right before Sergio Garcia helped him into a green jacket. The loudest cheers were for everyone else. Reed earned their respect with two big birdie putts on the back nine, one crucial par putt and plenty of grit. He also had a little luck when his 80-foot putt across the 17th green hit the hole, keeping it only 6 feet away. He made that for par to stay in control. Reed won for the sixth time in his PGA Tour career, though he was best known for the trophies he shared at the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. He is ferocious in match play, especially the team variety, and his singles victory over McIlroy at Hazeltine in the 2016 Ryder Cup led to the nickname of Captain America. Captain America is now the Masters champion. Hes not scared. I think you guys have seen that previous from the Ryder Cups and the way he plays,Ž said Fowler, who closed with a 67. He wont back down. I dont necessarily see him as someone that backs up and will let you come back into the tournament. You have to go catch him.Ž Fowler did his best with three birdies in a four-hole stretch, and an 8-foot birdie on the final hole. It still wasnt enough. Fowler was runner-up for the third time in a major. He left the scoring cabin when Reed tapped in for par. Glad I at least made the last one, make him earn it,Ž Fowler said with a grin as he waited to greet the newest major champion. You had to do it didnt you?Ž Reed told him as they exchanged a hug. You had to birdie the last.Ž Spieth put up the most unlikely fight and was on the verge of the greatest comeback in Masters history. He started nine shots behind going into the final round, and was inches away on two shots from a chance at another green jacket. His tee shot on the 18th clipped the last branch in his way, dropping his ball some 267 yards from the green. His 8-foot par putt for a record-tying 63 narrowly missed on the right. He had to settle for a 64. I think Ive proven to myself and to others that you never give up,Ž Spieth said. I started the round nine shots back and I came out with the idea of just playing the golf course and having a lot of fun doing it and try to shoot a low round and finish the tournament strong and see what happens, if something crazy happens.Ž McIlroy, meanwhile, will have to wait another year for a shot at the career Grand Slam. Trailing by three shots to start the final round, he closed to within one shot after two holes. That was as close as he came. McIlroys putter betrayed him, and he was never a factor on the back nine. He closed with a 74 and tied for fifth. The gallery was clearly behind McIlroy, even though Reed led Augusta State to a pair of NCAA titles and briefly lived in Augusta. He was met with polite applause on the first tee. The throaty cheer was for McIlroy, and it looked as though the 28-year-old from Northern Ireland atone himself from shooting 80 in the final round and losing a four-shot lead. Reed scrambled for a bogey on the opening hole. He failed to get up-and-down from a bunker on the par-5 second as McIlroy had a 4-foot eagle putt to tie for the lead. McIlroy missed badly, a sign of what would to come. He missed four putts inside 10 feet on the front nine, and he missed a 3-foot par on the 14th. Different about this victory for Reed was the fuchsia shirt he wore as part of a Nike script. Reed always wears black pants and a red shirt because thats what Tiger Woods does, and Reed has long modeled his mental game after Woods. Be stubborn,Ž he once said about learning by watching Woods.Assosiated PressBOSTON „ Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts left Sundays game against Tampa Bay in the seventh inning after injuring his left ankle while sliding into the Rays dugout. Bogaerts was covering third base and chasing his own mishandling of a ball relayed by J.D. Martinez when he got hurt. He needed help to get off the field and walked with a noticeable limp. He was replaced by Brock Holt.

He is hitting .368 (14 of 38) this season with two homers and nine RBIs. Holt said hes prepared to step in at shortstop if Bogaerts has to miss any time. I feel comfortable at shortstop, second base, third base „ pretty much anywhere,Ž Holt said. Its a tough team to crack the lineup.
