SEBRING „ J.P. Fane loved being a Highlands County Sheriffs deputy, and really loved riding a motorcycle on the Sheriffs Traf“c Unit. He had a plate on the back that read, Smile. I could be behind you.Ž Those who knew Fane preferred he not be. With J.P. Fane, you werent getting a warning,Ž said Scott Dressel, Sheriffs Of“ce public information of“cer. Fane said stealth also had its hazards. The advantage of a motorbike is nobody sees you,Ž Fane said. The disadvantage is nobody sees you.Ž If people did see you theyd slow down, he said. Eight percent would slow down for a patrol car, but 38 percent would for motoŽ of“cer. Fane rode with the traf“c unit eight years „ under then-sheriff Howard Godwin „ and spent 14 years over the 911 central dispatch. He retired earlier this month. Decreased funds and increased costs make a dedicated traf“c unit no longer feasible. If we could have a traf“c unit, we probably would,Ž Dressel said. Sheriff Paul Blackman, elected in 2016, continued a policy set by former sheriff Susan Benton to have road deputies do traf“c enforcement. Its not like were not doing traf“c (stops) on 27,Ž Dressel said. Of the 4,150 traf“c stops by the Sheriffs Of“ce this year, 1,733 were on U.S. 27, Dressel said: 16 per day. Of 42 driving under the in”uence calls this year, Dressel said, deputies handled 31, with 20 on U.S. 27. Fane said the traf“c unit was effective, but he did not have statistics. Anecdotally, he said, southbound drivers knew to slow down as they neared Avon Park. Also, he said, the Sheriffs Of“ce often got denied for Florida Department of Transportation grants: Not enough fatalities. Fane said motorcycles were relatively inexpensive: $1,000 each from HarleyDavidson. After a year, the Sheriffs Of“ce could trade them for new ones and dealers would resell them. People liked police bikes. Dressel differs with that analysis. A motorcycle is cheaper to insure than a patrol car, but costs as much to buy. It also costs more to hire and out“t the extra deputy for a traf“c unit: They get both a car and motorcycle. The issue also is you dont just take a deputy and throw them on a motorcycle,Ž Dressel said. Theres a whole extra school they have to attend to get certi“ed to ride. It takes several weeks and is not cheap.Ž Fane agrees. The moto (sic) course had to be the most physically demanding course Ive ever taken.Ž Deputies had to learn to ride in formation and in tandem and then how to „ safely „ drop a 950-pound bike on the ground while riding on pavement, grass or sand. Fane wrapped his crash bars in hoses to protect the chrome.Traffic enforcementBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERDedicated unit not in HCSO budget COURTESY PHOTO/HIGHLANDS COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDeputy Jay Carver shoots a LIDAR speed detection device at northbound trac on U.S. 27, across from the Avon Park National Guar d Armory.

The Sheris Oce will have such enforcement eorts, but all road patrol deputies have been charged with the task of keeping an eye on trac infractions.TRAFFIC | 6 GAINESVILLE (AP) „ On Labor Day weekend in 1983, Howard Appledorfs neighbor noticed the celebrity professors back door was broken in, and it looked as though the house had been burgled. Appledorf, who had been honored by the University of Florida as Teacher of the Year in 1974 and Distinguished Lecturer in 1978, was best known as the junkfood professorŽ for his defense of the nutritional value of fast food. Gainesville police responded to the neighbors call. What of“cers found reads more like a scene from the 1980 horror “lm The Shining than a robbery report. They found Appledorf dead on his couch, bound and asphyxiated with his shirt off, a cigarette butt snuffed out in his stomach. Across his living room walls, the words MURDERŽ and REDRUMŽ had been scrawled in red. Beside the body, the murderers had laid out a dining set, apparently having eaten Subway while they watched Appledorf die. News of the death rippled through Gainesville, and then the country, morphing as quickly as it traveled: Appledorf had been asphyxiated with junk food, reporters wrote, a gruesome homage to his nickname. The murderers had written their messages in peanut butter; no „ ketchup; no „ red ink. They had killed him with a frying pan while listening to Soft Cells 1981 hit, Tainted Love.Ž Every version extended the allure until the killers gave themselves up in bizarre fashion after leaving a sloppy trail „ driving Appledorfs car and using his credit card. Who were these psychopaths? Gainesville soon found out, and the answers would shock the citys 1980s conscience. This was seven years before the deaths of “ve students at the hands of Danny Rolling would snuff out any remaining civic naivet. Gary Bown, Paul Everson, and Shane Kennedy were a trio of gay prostitutes from San Francisco. They had traveled to Gainesville on Appledorfs invitation, staying with him at his lakefront home for two nights before their arrest for forging his signature on a $900 check. While in jail, the three requested Appledorf pay their bond, 35 years after murder, Appledorf lives on in UF classBy CHAMPE BARTONTHE GAINESVILLE SUN SEBRING „ Enrollment in the Highlands County School District continues to be up from last year with Avon Park High and Lake Placid Elementary schools making large gains offsetting some the declines at other schools. Overall, the mid-April enrollment in the School Board of Highlands County was up by 43 students. That raises the grand total of students from 12,485 in 2017 to 12,528 in 2018. The increase is not from more students in the schools, but from an increase in students who are in other programs that make up the districts grand total.Ž That includes 35 students at the districts alternative program, the Academy at Youth Care Lane, which had 25 students at this time last year. The Hospital Homebound and prekindergarten disabilities categories also had increases. Also, the grand total includes the Highlands Virtual School, which AP High leads districts enrollment gainsBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER MARC VALERO/STAFFThe mid-April enrollment at Avon Park High School is up by 85 students compared to last year.He was very bright, very friendly, a great speaker ... the resident intellectual at the Red Lion (a local watering hole).

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to The “rst thing you probably think about when someone mentions human traf“cking is the sex trade. And, no doubt, that is probably the form of human traf“cking that is the most talked about „ with the help of Hollywood and movies like Taken.Ž But there are other forms of human traf“cking, some just as prevalent, that we might encounter every day. One de“nition of human traf“cking is recruitment and transportation of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion or deception and taking advantage of that person through abuse of power to gain bene“ts through the exploitation of that person. Traf“cking can involve using that person in the sex trade, forced labor, slavery and even the harvesting of organs. Florida ranks third, behind California and Texas, for the number of traf“cking cases reported. Miami and Tampa are ranked fourth and 12th respectively, of the 100 most populous cities in the U.S., for the number of calls per 100,000 people, to report traf“cking. Southwest Florida is an area that has seen few cases of traf“cking reported „ but that doesnt mean we are immune. Many traf“cking victims are moved around and the Miami-to-Tampa pipeline runs right through out communities. Highlands County Sheriffs Lt. Greg Pearlman sits on the 10th Circuit Human Traf“cking Task Force. At a gathering April 6 to discuss human traf“cking and its local impact, Pearlman said there have been four allegations made in the past two months. Most of it will be an allegation of a parent or guardian prostituting out their child for drugs or something. Usually its an outside source or a disgruntled neighbor or family member, just like most of the child abuse cases are,Ž he said, adding that many of the allegations are false. HCSO Volunteer Chaplain William Trucano added that by having events such as the one hosted at the Genesis Center, law enforcement hopes to keep the numbers low. The more people know and are aware, the less problems we will have,Ž he said. One of the best weapons against traf“cking is awareness and a willingness to get involved and report suspected cases. There are several traits you can be alert to, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families, that could indicate a person is in distress. They include: € Signs of physical and sexual violence, such as: unexplained bruises, black eyes, cuts, or marks € Fear, anxiety, depression, submission, tension, and/or nervousness € Hyper-vigilant or paranoid behavior € Children and youth often express interest in, or are in relationships with adults or older men € Evidence of controlling or dominating relationships, including: repeated phone calls from a boyfriendŽ and/or excessive concern about displeasing a partner € Unexplained shopping trips or possession of expensive clothing, jewelry, or a cell phone could indicate the manipulation of an exploiter € Not in control of their own money € Unaccounted for time, vagueness concerning whereabouts, and/or defensiveness in response to questions or concerns € Keeping late-night or unusual hours € New clothes, or getting hair or nails done with no “nancial means to do this independently € Personal information such as: age, name, and/or date of birth might change with each telling of his or her story, or the information given might contradict itself € No identi“cation or is not in control of his or her identi“cation documents Sometimes it is a dif“cult choice to get involved. But, the hardships and abuse victims of traf“cking go through are often horrendous. If any of us can play even a small role in derailing this terrible crime, we should.Human trafficking more common than we want to believeThe more things change in America, the more they seem to stay the same. Henry Adams, writing about his life in the early 1800s could have been writing about America of 2018. See if you can see yourself and America in these writings from almost 200 years ago. Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, had always been the systematic organization of hatreds, and Massachusetts politics had been as harsh as the climate.Ž This sure sounds similar to todays toxic political climate. America is sometimes polarized between ”yover country and the coastal elites. But that view is not new. Though Quincy was but two hours walk from Beacon Hill, it belonged in a different world. For two hundred years, every Adams, from father to son, had lived within sight of State Street, and sometimes had lived in it, yet none had ever taken kindly to the town, or been taken kindly by it.Ž Yet he felt also that Quincy was in a way inferior to Boston and that socially Boston looked down on Quincy. The reason enough was clear enough even to a “ve-year old child. Quincy had no Boston style.Ž Some folks think our Muslim and Hispanic immigrants dont share our values. That view of immigrants is not new. To outsiders, immigrants, adventurers, it was easy, but the old Puritan nature rebelled against change. The reason it gave was forcible. The Puritan thought his thought higher and his moral standards better than those of his successors.Ž Donald Trumps rough and tumble approach to politics seems new and refreshing to some. But consider what Adams wrote about the Donald Trumps of his time. A coarser instrument would have impressed them more. Average human nature is very coarse, and its ideals must necessarily be average. The world never loved perfect poise. What the world does love is commonly absence of poise, for it has to be amused. Napoleons and Andrew Jacksons amuse it.Ž Why is it that violent acts seem to be committed by boys? This is not a new phenomenon. The idea of violence was familiar to the anti-slavery leaders as well to their followers. Mobs were always possible. Henry never happened to be actually concerned in a mob, but he, like every other boy, was sure to be on hand wherever a mob was expected.Ž Some folks today lament how our schools are indoctrinating our children. That complaint was also true in the early 1800s. All State education is a sort of a dynamo machine for polarizing the popular mind; for turning and holding its lines of force in the direction supposed to be most effective for State purposes.Ž The relationship between man and woman is always complicated yet intoxicating. She was the “rst young woman he was ever intimate with … quick, sensitive, willful, or full of will, energetic, sympathetic and intelligent enough to supply a score of men with ideas „ and he was delighted to give her the reins „ to let her drive him where she would. It was his “rst experiment in giving the reins to a woman, and he was so much pleased with the results that he never wanted to take them back.Ž I imagine 200 years from now they will be discussing these same issues the same way Henry Adams wrote about them in the early 1800s.

How about store parking lots like Lakeshore Mall, Shelby Crossing and even regular grocery stores like Winn-Dixie? These lots have designated parking spaces and designated roads.Ž Every time I go to one of these lots, some drivers, and luckily they are few in number, drive across the spaces and roads without checking to see if someone is on the actual right of way. Come on peeps, do it right. The life you save could be your own. As for red light running, today was a prime example that prompted me to write ... I came from Lakeview Drive to Scenic and was waiting to cross the Parkway at the light. The vehicle in front of me was turning left onto the Parkway and was nearly broadsided by a white Jeep Cherokee or similar barrelling through the red light. How the white one missed him, I dont know. Crazy and scary.S. Alderson Avon Park Politics exposes the dark side Politics turns us into different people. In a nation divided we have sought new and improved ways to dredge up irrelevant ancient history and insults as part of the quest to justify political views while crucifying those who dare to see things differently. For some time now I have seen writings who blast the couple who write as one for stating their opinion on political personalities. Politics is a volatile topic, especially in these times. The atmosphere in America is charged with discord and chaos and some seize the opportunity to spout criticism of government and the citizens who voice their opinion of lawmakers. I have serious concerns regarding the health of our government. There is plenty of blame to go around. The fault of broken democracy does not lie solely with a past president, political candidate or government of“cial. It does not lie entirely with the current administration. We need to move past childish name calling and petty mud slinging. Less time is needed seeking a convenient scapegoat and more time making sure our votes count and that our representatives hear our voices. Madeline Albright reminds us of a comment by Benito Mussolini as he tore away at democracy: If you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, the people wont notice.Ž Enough with the squabbling among ourselves. Our focus needs to be that we are vigilant that America is not the referenced chicken.Warren Pender SebringLets talk ideasThis is to the writers responding to the couple of Sebring gasbags. One writer mentioned talking about ideas. Lets try this and not mention any former presidents. What has the current president produced since inauguration? He did help pass the tax bill. I dont think we can judge that for a couple years to see what effect it has on the budget and middle class. I would like to know what he is going to do on immigration, infrastructure, education, and health care. Please dont say the Democrats have held up his agenda. The Republicans control both houses of Congress. So lets talk ideas without mentioning any past presidents.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, April 22, 2018 threatening to contact a local reporter and out him to the community if he didnt. Kennedy was only 15 years old, after all; would Appledorfs life ever return to normal if community members knew he was gay and that he had slept with a child? Appledorf dropped the charges. As a part of the agreement, the three were to leave Gainesville permanently. Instead, upon their release „ while Appledorf boarded a plane headed for a conference in New York „ they walked six miles to Appledorfs home. Two days later, after Appledorfs return, of“cers would “nd his body. It was quite a shock to everybody and it was right at the start of the semester,Ž recalls UF Emeritus Professor and friend of Appledorfs, Robert Bates. After his death ... (the class he taught) came almost to a screeching halt.Ž According to Bates, Appledorf had grown the UF course, Mans Food, from a sleepy little thing of 15 studentsŽ to a wait-list-only auditorium lecture with over 100. It was a testament to his enthusiasm as a teacher, said Bates, that enrollment dipped so considerably the year of his death. Without Howie, there was just no draw,Ž he said. The department would eventually recover, and Mans Food today brings in hundreds of students each year. Its appeal began with Appledorf. In the months that followed Appledorfs death, Bown and Everson received life sentences for murder. But Kennedy, because he had left the house during the murder to vomit, was only sentenced to four years for grand theft. After serving his time, he returned to Manhattan, where he committed a series of strange offenses, ranging from trashing a Blockbuster video display to biting a chunk out of a security guards leg. Eventually, after multiple arrests for stalking fashion designer Todd Oldham (sending the designer condoms, erotic art, and leaves, loitering outside his studio, etc.) Kennedy was committed to a Manhattan mental hospital. Bown and Everson still live in cells at Martin Correctional Institution, a prison in Martin County. Appledorf had served as a member of the faculty in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition since 1960. He was a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a Ph.D. in nutrition. He came to UF following post-doctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, according to a biographical note by the George Smathers Libraries at UF. The story of his death survives in True Crime retellings. But in Gainesville, there are a handful of people, like Bates, who remember a friend instead of a sensation. He was very bright, very friendly, a great speaker ... the resident intellectual at the Red Lion (a local watering hole),Ž said Bates. He really put this school and this department on the map.ŽMURDERFROM PAGE 1 shows an increase from 17 to 37 students. Avon Park High Schools April enrollment is up by 85 students from 981 in 2017 to 1,066 in 2018. Lake Placid Elementary has a gain of 28 students from 806 in 2017 to 834 in 2018. District-wide, enrollment was ”at at the elementary level with no change of 6,197 students. Enrollment declined by 78 in the middle schools from 2,853 to 2,775. At the high school level, enrollment increased by 76 from 3,356 to 3,432. The largest grade level is fourth-grade with 1,054 students, followed by third-grade with 1,043 students and ninth-grade with 1,041.

Once while Fane was stopped on State Road 17, on funeral escort, an impatient 82-year-old driver whipped around a line of stopped cars and clipped his motorcycle: just beyond his hand on the handlebar; just past his leg on the crash bar. The motorcycle was everywhere,Ž Fane said. God was looking out for me.Ž Fane is thankful for Florida laws that designate certain behaviors as aggressive driving, such as speeding, tailgating and quick, improper lane-changing. On his personal motorcycle, Fane wont ride on U.S. 27. Its too dangerous,Ž he said. When asked if he believes the county still needs a traf“c unit, Fane says, Im biased.Ž He supports having a traf“c unit and believes in motorcycles. People slow down for them, because they only give tickets. (Drivers) realize thats what those guys do,Ž Fane said. Fane also thinks Blackman is doing a great job as it is, and Dressel said the Sheriffs Of“ce struggles with lower post-recession property tax revenue like every agency does. At this point, were doing the best we can with what weve got. People can help us out by slowing down and paying attention,Ž Dressel said. I really think that distraction more than speed is the major cause, and thats very hard to police.Ž Fane said hes seen people distracted by eating and drinking, applying makeup and messing with radios or other in-car amenities. Dressel also said people look too much at cell phones, kids in the back seat or sunsets over Lake Jackson on their way home. It only takes a second of distraction for an otherwise safe driver to have a wreck, Dressel said. He said drivers can do a lot to improve safety. Leave a few minutes early,Ž Dressel said, and leave a little more space between you and other cars.Ž Those two things, he said, go a long way toward reducing wrecks.TRAFFICFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTO/HIGHLANDS COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDeputy Vincent Forrest shoots a LIDAR speed detection device at eastbound trac on Hammock Road in Sebring, between Heron Road and Brunns Road.

Sunday, April 22, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 Over Miami traffic, a man now travels with dolphinsMIAMI (AP) „ Parker Lake got sick of the rat race. Sick of working in a cubicle. Sick of commuting on Miamis mean streets. Sick of being overweight from sitting at a desk or in traf“c jams. So Lake quit his unful“lling job, sold his car and moved to a house on the Little River. Road warrior no more, he paddles to two new jobs on a stand-up paddleboard. The rude drivers who used to accompany him on his travels have been replaced by manatees, dolphins, pelicans and spotted eagle rays. Lake decided to stop despairing and daydreaming and go outside himself, as well as the con“nements of of“ce and automobile. Hes lost 45 pounds. Hes gained peace of mind. I thought to myself, Im spinning my wheels in more ways than one. Im not happy with the commute, Im not happy being a salesman,Ž he said. Now I “nd myself ful“lled. The difference in pay is not insigni“cant but I “gure Im paying to be happy.Ž On Thursday, Lake paddled three miles home from his parttime job as a tour guide at the iPaddle Miami watersports rental center at Pelican Harbor Marina on the 79th Street Causeway. He paused at Bird Key, where a great blue heron launched from the trees. As the wind turned brisk and churned the Intracoastals waters, Lake balanced on his 121/2-foot bamboo Riviera Ron House board and gazed at the downtown Miami skyline. Then he headed up the river, which gets progressively grittier the farther west you go. He passed yachts parked behind luxurious homes, then helped construction workers fetch a “shing pole that had dropped in the water. He stroked onward past a ”ock of orange-beaked ibises, empty warehouses, rundown apartment buildings, a homeless man living under a bridge, walls covered with graf“ti, trash ”oating on the surface. Paddling to and from work, he can see and hear the cars on surrounding roads and bridges. Im not part of that anymore and I feel great,Ž he said. Drivers look at me with a look of longing, and I know what theyre thinking: Hes probably on vacation. I need a vacation.Ž Lakes other job is as a security guard at the Eden Roc hotel in Miami Beach. Thats a 12-mile, two-hour paddle from where he lives on Northeast 85th Street. He carries his work clothes and shoes in a dry bag backpack. He once paddled over a hammerhead shark on his route. This is a mode of transportation that I think more people will be choosing in the future,Ž he said. Some people bike to work. I think everybody stuck in gridlock every day should consider an alternative. When I was cubicleand Fiat-bound, my exercise consisted of walking into of“ces selling web technology. I got fat. Physically and mentally, Im in a better place. Going to work is not a chore. Youve seized the day by the time you get to your job.Ž Lake, 44, is a Los Angeles native who earned an economics degree from the University of Southern California, where he was on the rowing team. He worked in China as an investigator for Pinkertons and in London in the “nancial printing business before moving to Miami “ve years ago to sell computer systems at UDT, a technology company in Doral. In California, the drivers are more polite than they are in Miami,Ž he said. They use their turn indicator, they let people change lanes or cross the street. Self-awareness is the biggest difference between drivers here and there. Here, people are rude, they cut you off, they ”ip each other off, theres lots of micro aggression wherever you go. In California you do not upset drivers because road rage never ends well. I came to realize that commuting in Miami was the worst part of my day. Now, its the best part of my day.Ž Lake is adding mileage to his commutes whenever possible to prepare for Crossing For A Cure, a June 17 fundraising trek from the Bahamas to Dania Beach. Its a 61-mile paddle that will take 8-10 hours. Paddleboarders are raising money for cystic “brosis research. Theres a degree of discomfort in this journey but it will be over in about eight hours,Ž Lake said. Kids with cystic “brosis live with pain all the time.Ž Its no small feat going that distance,Ž said iPaddle owner Manuel Castillo, who is helping Lake train for the event. Its a physical game. Its a mental game.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, April 22, 2018 TRENTON (AP) „ A man who investigators say killed two sheriffs deputies in rural north Florida was a mystery “gure in the small agricultural community rocked by the shooting. John Hubert Highnote, 58, had bought a house on a quiet, tree-lined dirt road outside of the tiny town of Bell in 2010, but didnt speak to neighbors and wasnt familiar at the few restaurants or shops on Main Street. Authorities there said theyd never had any contact with him. Records show hed lived previously in St. Petersburg, where hed had a number of run-ins with the law for minor crimes and misdemeanors, including one arrest for carrying a concealed weapon. On Thursday, Highnote walked into a Chinese restaurant in the nearby town of Trenton, went up to Gilchrist County deputies Sgt. Noel Ramirez, 30, and deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25, and “red at them before they had a chance to react, authorities said. He then went into his car and killed himself. Jamie Mauldin, a waitress at Akins BarB-Q about a mile from Highnotes house in Bell said she didnt know Highnote but that Ramirez and Lindsey were regulars. Ramirez was the sweetest ever. He loved his family. Loved his job. Always had a smile,Ž she said, wearing a freshly made T-shirt that said Gilchrist Strong.Ž The proceeds of the shirts will go to the deputies families. A neighbor who has lived across the street from Highnote for “ve years said he never introduced himself, and she rarely saw him when she ran on their dirt road or was out with her kids. She only ever saw him when drove into his garage. Id see him pull in, shut the garage and go in. No lights on or nothing,Ž said the neighbor, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she did not want to be involved in the investigation. She characterized him as a recluse. Investigators in Florida say they may never know why he “red the shots at Ace China restaurant, about 35 miles (60 kilometers) west of Gainesville. Its inexplicable,Ž State Attorney Bill Cervone said. People will want to know why, and we may never have an answer for them.Ž Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz blamed the deaths on hatred toward law enforcement. What do you expect happens when you demonize law enforcement to the extent its been demonized? Every type of hate, every type of put-down you can think of,Ž Schultz said at a news conference. The only thing these men were guilty of is wanting to protect you and me. They just wanted to get something to eat, and they just wanted to do their job,Ž he said. President Donald Trump called the slain deputies HEROESŽ in a tweet sharing his condolences with their friends, families and colleagues. Highnote lived alone in a small, brick house off a dirt road shaded under a canopy of trees. He bought the house in 2010, property records show. Hed had one traf“c ticket in Gilchrist County over the past eight years, according to the county clerk of court. Prior to moving to Bell, records show Highnote lived in St. Petersburg where he had more runins with law enforcement over previous decades. He was arrested for felony carrying a concealed “rearm in 1978, a charge later dropped after he successfully completed a pre-trial intervention, Pinellas County court records show. Hightnote was also arrested for misdemeanor criminal mischief in 1994, for which he also did a pre-trial diversion program and the charges were dropped. The records had no further information about the mischief for which he was arrested. He was also cited for consuming alcohol in public in 1977, and had 11 traf“c tickets for speeding and other infractions over the years.Man who shot 2 deputies was mystery to neighborsASSOCIATED PRESS SOUTH FLORIDA STATE COLLEGE Criminal Justice Academyadno=3571392

All “shing factors considered, theres not a bad day for “shing this week. Just “sh when the interaction of the sun and moon is most prominent during the day and there should be plenty of hook-setting action. Best Fishing Days: As is the case with every months “rst quarter moon phase, which starts today, the moon overhead and underfoot periods occur along with the sunset and sunrise periods respectively. And since the moon was closest to earth„lunar perigee„on Friday, these periods will produce very well today and Monday, which will be the best days of the next four days. The Major Fishing Period: The moon will be overhead today at 7:47 p.m. and the sunset at 7:54 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 5-6 from 5-9 p.m. Im betting this period will remain the best “shing period of the day until Wednesday when it switches to the midmorning hours. The Minor Fishing Period: The moon will be underfoot today at 7:18 a.m. and the sunrise at 6:54 a.m. which will create a feed rating of 5 from 6-9 a.m. However unlike the major period this period moves later by one hour daily.

This seasonal two foot buffer schedule is necessary because the lake is able to “ll six times faster than water is able to be released. Currently all four S68 gates are closed. On the subject of Istokpoga „ representatives from Fish and Wildlife Commission inform me that, yes, it does seem as if there is more weed spraying occurring, but the new strategy is to treat the invasive weed areas when they are very small in size (small spot treatments) instead of when they become very large in size. Therefore, the amount of chemical used is less with the small-area treatments on a regular basis as opposed to using a large amount of herbicide on very large weed areas a few times per year.Ž The negative factor with this strategy for anglers is, with the spraying occurring much more often (weekly most months), albeit small spot treatments instead of very large ones, the displacement of “sh from the treated areas is much greater or more often than the 2-4 annual large-scale treatment events of very large areas. This explains why locating bass for instance takes far more time than it used to. Bass are having to adjust to new locations due to dying vegetation cover, weekly, instead of seasonally. So the bass population FWC says is still healthy as it ever was, its just that theyre not where you used to “nd themƒas often. In fact, the experienced Istokpoga anglers con“rm this in my discussions with them, We are “nding them in places weve not “shed before, where they would not normally go naturally.Ž Of course, Hurricane Irma greatly changed where “sh inhabit due to excessive blow-in now-decomposing vegetation along the lake bottom western and northern shorelines and south and eastern shorelines of islands.

Charlie Belluardo (No. 73 Flatout Motorsports) kept his Challenger Cup presented by Monticello Motor Club win streak alive with his third class win, as Hernan Palermo claimed the (No. 20 Slipstream Performance) Masters category honors for his run to 11th overall. There is a lot on the line in every Global Mazda MX-5 Cup race, as the series champion will emerge from the year-end awards with a $200,000 prize from Mazda while the top rookie will score some $75,000 in racing support. The “eld of nearly thirty racers demonstrated their motivation right from the drop of the green ”ag, as the drivers fought hard for position on the 2.3-mile circuit all the way to the checkered ”ag, with some 276 passes being completed during the 45-minute race. This feels great,Ž said Reger of his fourth series victory. Its a new team, a new year and I think we “nally pulled it all together today. Those last couple of laps were pretty crazy. We hit some traf“c in the end and thats when I wanted to make moves. I knew I had a good, “ghting chance of getting in the lead. I just took my time and used every ounce of my patience to not make a move on Sparky, who was leading at the time. Whenever I did get around, I saw Ortiz had gotten around too and I knew he was fast. I picked my marks and tried to drive the best lap of my life on the last lap and I guess it was!Ž Ortiz had been hoping to double his Global Mazda MX-5 Cup win tally, but was still pleased to score another strong podium on Friday. The whole race was pretty good,Ž said Ortiz, who grew his lead in the overall championship. I didnt think we had a car to be there at the “nish „ we had to “ght the whole race. Everybody raced really clean. Were happy. We came close. We were thinking about the big picture, about the championship, and we want to be there at the end. Were happy to get second, get good points and this is for a friend of mine Tatiana whose mom, Donna, died this week. I have to thank my sponsor, Bella Group, because I could not do this without them. We had challenging couple months for sure after the hurricane. The people of Puerto Rico are working hard and doing the best we can. We still need help to get the island going, but were getting back on our feet little by little.Ž After John Mauro had to miss the race weekend, Pinkerton got the nod for the Barber event as he looked to put his local knowledge to good use. Despite not having driven a Global Mazda MX-5 Cup machine before the race weekend, the Birmingham native showed he was a quick study. I didnt get the greatest of starts,Ž said Pinkerton. There was a big checkup at the start. The polesitter really waited until the last minute to give it the beans and go. I struggled at the start and a few cars passed me. I tried to go around the outside and it didnt work. There was a lot of action. I capitalized on a lot of other peoples misfortune. There were a few spinners in front of me. The one car that passed me was Zach Lee. He ran me down fair and square once I overheated my tires. I really learned a lot today. Its my “rst start in the series and “rst time running that long in the dry in these cars. Im looking forward to tomorrow. The BFGoodrich tire was awesome and now I know not to abuse it on the backside of the course!Ž After winning both the Challenger Cup presented by Monticello Motor Club races at the Circuit of the Americas, Belluardo kept his streak intact with a return to the top of the Challenger Class podium to open the weekend. It was an amazing race,Ž said Belluardo. I was able to see the video screens going into turn 11 and keep an eye on my competitors. The level of driving talent out here is amazing, thanks to Mazda, Battery Tender and Monticello. And thanks to Flatout Motorsports which gave me a great car today.Ž Also taking part in the post-race podium was Slipstream Performance racer Palermo, who was the highest finishing driver in the Masters category. I just happened to be the fastest old guy today, basically!Ž said Palermo. We were in a pack at the beginning that got a bit tangled and we lost touch with the lead pack, and I ended up 11th overall.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, April 22, 2018 Panthers prowl past Caloosahatchee RiverDefenders of Wildlife organized a meeting to inform citizens about the research and conservation efforts of wildlife biologists to aid in the recovery of the endangered Florida Panther. The meeting was held at Archbold Biological Station on April 14 and residents learned how they could assist with the recovery efforts. Panthers are important for Florida. They are an umbrella species,Ž and efforts to protect panthers will also be bene“cial for protecting other wildlife. Panthers are top predators that keep the ecosystem healthy by keeping deer and other prey populations in check. Preserving undeveloped lands for panthers improves the quality of the soil, water and air for both people and animals. In addition, large tracts of wild land, which panthers need to survive, are important for recharging groundwater. Researchers have been tracking the number of panthers for years, and those numbers are increasing. Also, the panther is expanding its territory and moving farther north. While male panthers will sometimes roam hundreds of miles, breeding females have been limited to extreme southwest Florida. However, in 2017, Female panthers were documented north of the Caloosahatchee River for the “rst time in decades. This indicates that the panthers are extending their home range. The natural diet of panthers includes deer, hogs and small mammals, but panthers have been known to prey on domesticated animals, including pets and livestock. This threat can be mitigated by building enclosed shelters for smaller animals such as goats and chickens. Sometimes panthers prey on calves, and this causes a hardship for ranchers. Fortunately, BY MELISSA MAINCORRESPONDENT MELISSA MAIN/CORRESPONDENTDefenders of Wildlife organized a meeting at Archbold on April 14 to inform citizens about panther recovery eorts. Elizabeth Fleming, Senior Florida Representative for Defenders of Wildlife, welcomed participants to the panther workshop. She also coordinates panther workshops and educational seminars in the area.

Sunday, April 22, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7 the government is working on improving its program to compensate ranchers. Detailed inventory records aid in getting reimbursement for lost cattle. The Fish and Wildlife want to have a good relationship with ranchers and reimburse them properly, because ranch lands are important to conservation efforts as whole. Although human-panther interactions can have some challenges, the Florida ecosystem bene“ts from the panther recovery effort. To further this recovery, researchers need to control panther mortality rates. Sixty-one percent of panther deaths are caused by traf“c collisions. Conservationists are searching for creative, cost-effective ways to help panthers cross highways. In south Florida, wildlife underpasses, such as those on Alligator Alley, have signi“cantly reduced the number of deaths due to vehicular collisions. Panther biologist David Maehr (19552008) once said, The panther is holding up its end of the bargain. Its up to us to let the panther demonstrate a resiliency hampered only by limited space.Ž While the Florida Panther may be expanding its range northward, its long-term survival is still dependent on how well we share that limited space.Ž Face to face with a panther in the woods? Heres what to do. Dont run, this might trigger the panther to begin a chase. Keep eye contact. Talk, but dont scream. Panthers associate talking with humans. Raise your arms up to look as big as possible. Stay calm. If the panther approaches, throw sticks or rocks. Remember, there have been no documented panther attacks on people in Florida.PANTHERFROM PAGE 6 Christian Hunt, Southeast Program Associate for Defenders of Wildlife, helped organize the event at Archbold Biological Station.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush joked that his mother called her style of mothering him and his siblings a benevolent dictatorship „ but honestly, it wasnt always benevolent.Ž He emphasized how she believed in the power of laughter and that joy should be shared. He said he could still feel her presence Saturday inside the nations largest Episcopal church and she would likely have given him advice on his eulogy: Jeb, keep it short. Dont drag this out,Ž he said to chuckles. He met her expectations with a speech lasting about seven minutes. He choked up at one point while addressing the roughly 1,500 people seated inside the St. Martins Episcopal Church in Houston, where his parents regularly worshipped, when saying his mother „ who was known for her self-deprecating remarks about her wrinkles and gray hair „ was beautifulŽ until the very end. He said he felt privileged that he had a front rowŽ seat to the incredible love story shared by his mother and father, former President George H.W. Bush, who laughed as longtime friends and family recalled his wifes wicked sense of humor Barbara Bush was first lady of the greatest generationBy JUAN A. LOZANOASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Now its President Donald Trumps turn to pull off the ultimate charm offensive. Wined and dined on multiple state visits during his tour of Asia last year, Trump is paying it forward and celebrating nearly 250 years of U.S.-French relations by playing host to President Emmanuel Macron at a glitzy White House state dinner on Tuesday. Months in the making, its the “rst state visit and “rst big soiree of the Trump era in Washington. It sounds like what theyre planning will be spectacular,Ž said Jeremy Bernard, who was White House social secretary in 2014, the last time the U.S. feted a French president. The White House has said little beyond the fact that dinner will be served, sticking to the tradition of trying to maintain an element of surprise for its guests. In fact, Macron will break bread twice with Trump. On Monday, the president and Melania Trump will dine privately with Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at Mount Vernon, the home of Americas “rst president, George Washington, on the banks of the Potomac River in Virginia. The White House said the setting will serve as a reminder of Frances unique statusŽ as Americas “rst ally. Trump ended his “rst year without receiving a foreign leader on a state visit, making him the “rst president in nearly 100 years to do so and heightening the stakes for Tuesday. Dinner tickets are typically highly sought after by Washingtons political and business elite. A few inklings of whos in and whos out already are known: Christine Lagarde, head Vive la France: Trump to host glitzy White House state dinnerBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES „ A homeless man who randomly stabbed a man to death as he was holding his daughter in a crowded Southern California restaurant was reported just a few hours earlier for disruptive behavior, but police ultimately determined he was not a threat, authorities said Saturday. Jamal Jackson, 49, is facing a “rst-degree murder charge in the death of 35-year-old Anthony Mele. He was being held in Ventura County jail on a $1.5 million bail. It was unclear if Jackson, who is also a convicted felon, had an attorney to speak on his behalf. Mele and his wife were eating dinner with their 5-year-old daughter Wednesday at Aloha Steakhouse in Ventura. The girl was sitting on her fathers lap when prosecutors say Jackson walked up and stabbed Mele in the neck. Prosecutor Richard Simon said patrons and a restaurant employee followed Jackson out of the restaurant, even though he still had the knife. They kept track of him until Ventura police arrived and arrested him. Mele was taken to a hospital and died Thursday after being taken off life support. Its horrible,Ž Simon said. You dont think youre going to be killed when you go out to dinner at a nice restaurant with your family and you didnt do anything.Ž Simon said the two men had not interacted before the attack. He was just sitting there with Man killed in random knife attack at California steakhouseBy AMANDA LEE MYERSASSOCIATED PRESS ATTACK | 3 BARBARA | 2 DINNER | 3WASHINGTON „ Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin expressed cautious optimism Saturday over efforts to resolve trade tensions that have rattled “nancial markets and clouded the global economic outlook. Mnuchin held a string of meetings over the past three days with “nancial of“cials from China, Japan and Europe over the punitive tariffs the administration has unveiled in an effort to ful“ll President Donald Trumps campaign promise to reduce Americas huge trade de“cits. In a session with reporters, Mnuchin refused to say how close the United States was to resolving the various trade disputes but did indicate progress was being made in the talks. In his discussion with Chinese of“cials, Mnuchin said the two sides covered the proposals that Chinese President Xi Jinping has made to open the Chinese market. We are cautiously optimistic,Ž Mnuchin told reporters, saying that he may soon travel to Beijing for further talks with the Chinese. The United States and China are on the brink of what would be the biggest trade dispute since World War II. The US and China have proposed imposing tariffs of $50 billion on each others products and Trump is looking to impose tariffs on up to $100 billion more of Chinese goods. The rising trade tensions dominated the three days of talks among top “nance of“cials attending meetings of the Group of 20 major economies, the 189-nation International Monetary Fund and its sister lending agency, the World Bank.Mnuchin expresses optimism for resolution of trade fightsBy MARTIN CRUTSINGER and PAUL WISEMANAP ECONOMICS WRITERSTRADE | 3 AP PHOTOFormer President George H.W.

After he spoke, Jeb Bush walked over to his father, and hugged him and kissed him on the cheek. Presidential historian Jon Meacham, who wrote a 2015 biography on the former president, recalled Barbara Bushs devotion to her husband of 73 years, noting former George H.W. Bush. is the only boy she ever kissed.Ž Theirs was the longest marriage of any other presidential couple. One of just two “rst ladies to have a child elected president, Barbara Bush was widely admired for her plainspoken style and was known as the EnforcerŽ in her family, the glue who kept the high-powered clan together. Meacham said it was Barbara Bushs quick tongue that made her so popular, along with her work promoting literacy and bringing awareness to AIDS patients. Barbara Bush was the “rst lady of the greatest generation,Ž Meacham said during his eulogy. The couples family, including their “ve children, 17 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, played a prominent role in the service. Granddaughters offered readings, some their voices shaky with emotion, while their eight grandsons were pallbearers. The Bush family was seated in front of the church. Nearby, two other former presidents „ Bill Clinton and Barack Obama „ along with their wives and current “rst lady Melania Trump were seated in the same pew. The invitation-only service was also attended by former ambassadors, members of Congress, sports stars and Houston business owners. A eulogy was also given by Barbara Bushs longtime friend, Susan Baker, wife of former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, who said Bush „ the wife of the 41st president of the U.S. and mother of the 43rd „ was the secret sauce of this extraordinary family.Ž As the funeral ended, George H.W. Bush was pushed in his wheelchair by his son George W. Bush as they followed the casket out of the churchs cavernous sanctuary, which had been adorned with sprays of yellow garden roses, yellow snap dragons and antique hydrangeas. They stopped along the way to shake hands, as mourners sang Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,Ž which Barbara Bush had requested as the “nal song. She died on Tuesday, with her husband by her side, at their home in Houston. She was 92. The burial will be held at her husbands presidential library at Texas A&M University, about 100 miles northwest of Houston. Hundreds of people lined both sides of the street near the campus ahead of the service. The burial site is in a gated plot surrounded by trees and near a creek where the couples 3-year-old daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953, is buried. Other guests at the funeral included former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and professional golfer Phil Mickelson, along with Karl Rove, and other former White House staff. Many were seen embracing in the church before the service on a gray, cloudy day as ”ags were ”own at half-mast. President Donald Trump did not attend to avoid security disruptions and out of respect for the Bush family and friends attending the service,Ž according to the White House. He said his thoughts were with the family. Melania Trump issued a statement after the funeral saying it was an honor to give her respects to a fearlessŽ “rst lady, adding: Today the world paid tribute to a woman of indisputable character and grace.Ž On Friday, more than 6,200 people visited the Houston church during a public viewing. Many of the women wore the former “rst ladys favorite color, blue, and trademark pearls. George H.W. Bush was so moved by how many people had lined up Friday to pay their “nal respects to his wife that he decided to go. From his wheelchair, he spent about 15 minutes shaking hands with people who had come.BARBARAFROM PAGE 1 Accompanied by his wife, Hillary Clinton,left, former President Bill Clinton arrives at St. Martins Episcopal Church for a funeral service for former rst lady Barbara Bush, Saturday, in Houston.

Meles Facebook page was “lled with photos of his daughter and said he was a manager at an AT&T store. Police con“rmed that a bystander reported a man „ who turned out to be Jackson „ for disruptive behavior several hours before the stabbing. According to the bystander, a man was yelling on the promenade not far from the beachside restaurant about three hours before the attack. Patrol of“cers were out on other calls so command center staff monitored the man via a pier security camera system for more than 20 minutes before deciding he didnt seem to be a threat, police said. Police are asking anyone who spoke with Jackson during that time to contact investigators. The killing prompted the Ventura City Council to increase police patrols in the area and add staff members to monitor security cameras, among other measures. We are extremely disheartened and infuriated by this criminal attack,Ž Mayor Neal Andrews said in a statement. We will not tolerate this in our community. Nothing is more important than the safety of our visitors, residents and businesses.Ž If convicted, Jackson faces up to 55 years in prison. According to online court records, he has prior convictions for burglary and unlawful sexual intercourse dating back to the 1990s.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1of the International Monetary Fund, is in, as are House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky was invited, but his of“ce said he is unable to attend. In a break with tradition, Trump invited no Democratic members of Congress or journalists, said a White House of“cial who was not authorized to discuss the arrangements. But at least one Democrat will be in the crowd: the of“ce of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards con“rmed his attendance. Approximately 150 guests will take their seats in the State Dining Room on Tuesday, making for a more intimate affair than those held by President Barack Obama. Obamas guest lists numbered into the hundreds, requiring that the event be held in a tented pavilion erected on the South Lawn because no room in the White House can accommodate that many people. Most of the responsibility for executing a ”awless celebration falls to the “rst lady and her staff, including such key details as what is served (Trump likes wedge salads and chocolate cake) and poured into glasses (Trump wine?), who sits next to whom, who performs after dinner and what the decor looks like. One big moment is the “rst glimpse of the “rst lady in her gown. Fashion details are kept secret until the “rst couple steps on to the North Portico on Tuesday night to welcome their dinner guests. Former “rst lady Michelle Obama often used state dinners to showcase the talent of up-and-coming designers. Some designers have cited Trumps politics in refusing to dress the current “rst lady, a former model. Still, a likely choice would be Dior, the French design house whose fashions Mrs. Trump often wears, or Herve Pierre, the French-American who designed her inaugural gown and other looks. The last time a Republican president hosted his French counterpart was November 2007 when President George W. Bush welcomed the newly divorced Nicolas Sarkozy. More than 100 guests feasted on lobster bisque, lamb with tomato fondue, green beans and sweet potato casserole, salad and dessert served in the State Dining Room. Among the guests were major league baseball pitcher Tom Glavine, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, French chef Guy Savoy and several Louisiana politicians. After dinner, guests strolled down the hall to the East Room to watch performers in the roles of Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette, the Frenchman who served on Washingtons staff in the Continental Army. Sarkozy toured Mount Vernon the following day. When Macrons limousine “rst pulls up the White House driveway on Tuesday morning, Trump, the “rst lady, White House and administration of“cials, and hundreds of invited guests will be waiting on the South Lawn. The pomp“lled arrival ceremony is for the man who became the youngest president in French history when he was elected in 2017 at age 39 on his “rst run for of“ce. The visit also offers Macron his “rst Oval Of“ce meeting and a joint White House news conference with Trump. Theres also a State Department lunch hosted by Vice President Mike Pence before Macron and his wife arrive for the state dinner. The Trump-Macron relationship appeared to get off to a bumpy start with a white-knuckler of a handshake when the political novices met for the “rst time at a NATO summit in Brussels last May. But Macron likely sealed the bond after Trump accepted his invitation to attend the annual Bastille Day military parade in the center of Paris in July. Macron and his wife also took Trump and the “rst lady on a tour of Napoleons tomb and whisked them up into the Eiffel Tower for dinner overlooking the City of Light. The experience led Trump to order up a military parade for downtown Washington later this year. But the two part company on some signi“cant issues, including the Paris climate accord, which Trump withdrew the U.S. from last year, and the Iran-nuclear deal, another multinational agreement that Trump is itching to pull out of. The president did successfully rally Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May, with whom Trump has sparred, to mount a joint military operation against Syria in response to an apparent chemical attack this month that killed Syrian civilians. Macron still worries about Trumps desire to remove U.S. troops from Syria. An art lover who speaks good English, Macron is known to watch what he eats. Yet he told reporters at an agricultural fair in Paris in February that I drink wine at lunch and dinner.Ž Discerning his tastes, including likes and dislikes, even allergies, is one of the “rst things the White House tries to pin down for all guests, said Bernard. Mrs. Trumps social secretary, Rickie Niceta, came aboard last year after two decades of event planning for a caterer whose clients included the White House, the State Department and several embassies, in addition to working on the past “ve presidential inaugurations, including Trumps. The “rst lady, who speaks French, also has experienced hands running the kitchen, pastry shop and ”orists lair. All three women helped execute more than a dozen state dinners for Obama. Trump owns hotels, including one near the White House, and knows about good hospitality. Bernard recalled that, just as invitations were about to go out for the 2014 dinner for then-French President Francois Hollande, news broke that Hollande and his longtime girlfriend had abruptly split. Mrs. Obamas staff anxiously sought clarity on whether Hollande would bring another date. He didnt, and Bernard dealt with the awkwardness of the situation by seating Hollande between the two Obamas.DINNERFROM PAGE 1 The US get-tough trade approach was roundly criticized by many countries at the “nance meetings but Mnuchin insisted that the United States was not trying to provoke a global trade war but simply achieving a more fair system for American workers. While the administrations America First approach rankled other nations, Mnuchin did announce a change in position with the World Bank, one of several multilateral institutions that Trump of“cials have criticized in the past. Last year, the administration said it was opposed to what would be the “rst increase in the World Banks capital resources since 2010. But on Saturday, Mnuchin said the United States had dropped its opposition and would support the increase as part of a package of lending reforms. The proposal would provide the World Bank with a $13 billion increase in its lending resources. Both the World Bank and IMF held meetings of their policy committees on Saturday. In a closing communique, the IMF expressed concerns that the rising trade tensions could dim what at the moment are bright prospects for the global economy, which is expected to grow this year at the fastest pace since 2011. Trade tensions are not to the bene“t of anyone,Ž said Lesetja Kganyago, who leads the policymaking committee and is governor of the South African Reserve Bank. If there is a trade con”ict, there could never be winners. We could all only be losers.Ž On Friday, Mnuchin had called on the IMF to do more to police countries running large trade surpluses, a role that has traditionally been left to the Genevabased World Trade Organization. While many IMF member countries would object to such a broadening of the IMFs powers, the “nal communique did state, We will work together to reduce excessive global imbalances in a way that supports global growth.Ž The communique did not spell out how this would be accomplished. The IMF communique did list a series of threats to the current global upturn and “nance of“cials pledged to work cooperatively. In his speech to the IMFs policy committee Saturday, Yi Gang, the head of Chinas central bank, said that global growth could be hurt by an escalation of trade frictions caused by unilateral actions,Ž an obvious reference to Americas threatened tariffs against China.TRADEFROM PAGE 1 WEST PALM BEACH „ President Donald Trump said Saturday that he doesnt expect Michael Cohen, his longtime personal lawyer and “xer, to ”ipŽ as the government investigates Cohens business dealings. Trump, in a series of tweets “red off from Florida on the morning of former “rst lady Barbara Bushs funeral, accused The New York Times and one of its reporters of going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will ”ipŽ „ a term that can mean cooperating with the government in exchange for leniency. Most people will ”ip if the Government lets them out of trouble,Ž even if it means lying or making up stories,Ž Trump said, before adding: Sorry, I dont see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!Ž The FBI raided Cohens home, of“ce and hotel room earlier this month looking for evidence of fraud as they conduct a criminal investigation. That included records related to payments Cohen made in 2016 to adult “lm star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom allege having had sexual encounters with Trump, people familiar with the raid have told The Associated Press. Prosecutors have said theyre investigating Cohens personal business dealings but havent said what crime they believe he may have committed. Cohens lawyers have called the raid an assault on attorney-client privilege and Trump has said it was an attack on our country. In the tweets, sent shortly after he arrived at one of his Florida golf courses, Trump accused the newspaper of using non-existent sourcesŽ in a Friday story about the relationship between Trump and Cohen, who has said he would take a bulletŽ for his boss. The story quoted several people on the record. Trump also lashed out personally at one of the storys writers, calling reporter Maggie Haberman third rateŽ and claiming he has nothing to do withŽ her. Trump later deleted and reposted the tweets correcting the spelling of Habermans name. Haberman is widely seen as one of the most diligent reporters covering the president and is known to speak with him often. The Times responded on Twitter, saying it stood by the story and praising Haberman, who was part of the team that just won a Pulitzer Prize for its reporting on Trump. The tweets came as the rest of the country was preparing for the funeral of Mrs. Bush. The president chose not to go to the Houston service, but “rst lady Melania Trump attended.

Page 4 The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 WORLD NEWSSEOUL, South Korea „ Kim Jong Uns suspension of North Korean nuclear tests has strings attached. The leaders statement at a ruling party meeting Friday includes a pledge to seek a favorableŽ international environment for economic development so that he can put the economy on an upward spiral track.Ž That builds on his 2012 vow to ensure that North Koreans would not have to tighten their beltsŽ any longer. It also means he is seeking the help of other countries for developing his economy, including the lifting of trade, “nancial and energy sanctions that hardened every time North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb. Skepticism prevails on whether North Korea could emulate the kind of economic success that South Korea has achieved. And history has shown that overseas investors can suffer with no recourse if they fail in their risk assessment. Yet North Korea is viewed as a wild card and frontier market that could offer rewards for the business community because of its central location in a booming region encompassing China, Japan and South Korea. Everything about North Korea spells potential,Ž said Kim Young-hui, a North Korean defector studying at Seouls government-owned Korea Development Bank. North Korea can be a bridge linking the peninsula to as far as Europe via China. Imagine how much cargo could ”ow on that Asian highway.Ž North Korea has struggled to revive its economy since a famine in the mid-1990s, while South Korea has taken off as an economic powerhouse. The Songun, or military-“rst policy, charted by Kims father, Kim Jong Il, also dried up economic resources that otherwise would have bene“ted the economy. China has been hoarding the rare earths and other minerals in North Korea. Estimated to be worth as much as $6 trillion, North Koreas reserves of gold, copper, zinc, coal, magnesite and molybdenite could attract buyers from countries other than China, allowing Kim to diversify his sources of income if he opens up his country. (In 2013 Kim executed his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, on charges that included selling precious underground resources for dirt-cheap prices.Ž) The nation of 25 million also provides a labor force that remains largely untapped. South Korea has shown that a business model combining its capital and know-how with North Korean labor can work when it ran an industrial park in the North Korean border city of Gaeseong. That complex closed in 2016 during military tensions. The challenge of educating North Koreans with Western business practices and technology remains daunting for any investors who may want to start similar projects. North Koreas isolation has essentially rendered South Korea as an island in the world of commerce. If it opens, it could win transportation fees by allowing South Korea to export its goods to the rest of the world by land. South Korean President Moon Jae-in, set to meet with Kim next Friday, has already suggested that his country could receive gas supplies from Russia through North Korea while cargo ”ows to Europe. That would mean building roads and other infrastructure in North Korea. Much about North Koreas economic development is easier said than done. Kims promise to stop nuclear tests is a far cry from U.S. and South Korean demands that all nuclear programs be rolled back. Kim has said nuclear arms safeguard his regime. It took China, a role model for North Korea, more than two decades to accelerate its growth after Deng Xiaoping decided to open up the country. And he didnt have to worry about the survival of his nation. Kim on the other hand fears for the lack of a nuclear deterrent „ and for a ”ow of information that could turn his people against him.Kim shifts focus to economy as NKorea ditches nuclear testsBy SAM KIMBLOOMBERG NEWSNEW DELHI „ Indias government on Saturday approved of the death penalty for people convicted of raping children under 12, responding to widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of a young girl and other attacks on children. An order was approved by Prime Minister Narendra Modis Cabinet and was being sent to the president for his approval, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. It will require the approval of Parliament within six months to become law. But in the meantime, suspects can be prosecuted under the order. The move follows widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of an 8-year-old girl in Indias Jammu-Kashmir state, the alleged rape of a girl by a ruling party lawmaker in Uttar Pradesh state and several other rape cases involving girls in the country. Many protesters expressed particular anger at Indias ruling Hindu nationalist party for initially siding with the accused in the Kashmir case. The young victim was a Muslim and the accused are Hindus. A total of at least nine suspects, including a lawmaker from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and four police of“cials, have been arrested in the Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh cases. Violent crime against women has been on the rise in India despite tough laws enacted in 2013. In 2012, the fatal gang rape of a young woman in New Delhi triggered massive protests by hundreds of thousands to demand stricter rape laws in the country. The government enacted laws doubling prison terms for rapists to 20 years and criminalizing voyeurism, stalking and the traf“cking of women. Indian lawmakers also voted to lower to 16 from 18 the age at which a person can be tried as an adult for heinous crimes. Abha Singh, a lawyer, said the governments move Saturday would deter men from committing crimes against women. But she urged the government to set a time frame for bringing suspects to justice. Indian courts are notorious for massive delays, with more than 30 million cases pending. She said that the conviction rate in rape cases in India was only 28 percent, implying that 72 out of 100 suspects are going unpunished.ŽIndia approves death penalty for rape of young childrenTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this April 17, 2018 le photo, egies hang on nooses with the words, from left to right, hang the guilty in the Unnao rape case,Ž Hang the guilty in the Kathua rape case,Ž and hang the guilty in the Surat rape case,Ž referring to recent cases and allegations of rape, during a protest in Ahmadabad, India. Indias government has decided to prescribe the death penalty for people convicted of raping girls under the age of 12 to combat an increase in crimes against women. BEIRUT „ Chemical weapons inspectors collected samples from Syrias Douma on Saturday, two weeks after a suspected gas attack there followed by retaliatory strikes by Western powers on the Syrian governments chemical facilities. The site visit, con“rmed by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, would allow the agency to proceed with an independent investigation to determine what chemicals, if any, were used in the April 7 attack that medical workers said killed more than 40 people. Douma was the “nal target of the governments sweeping campaign to seize back control of the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus from rebels after seven years of revolt. Militants gave up the town days after the alleged attack. The U.S., France, and Britain blamed the President Bashar Assads government for the attack, and struck suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities one week later. The Syrian government and its ally Russia denied responsibility for the attack. OPCW inspectors arrived in Damascus just hours before the April 15 strikes but were delayed from visiting the site until Saturday, leading Western of“cials and Syrian activists to accuse Russia and the Syrian government of staging a cover-up. I wont “nd any hope in my heart until the Assad regime is held accountable and eradicated from government in Syria,Ž said Bilal Abou Salah, a Douma media activist who left the town after the government takeover. He said he feared Russian and Syrian government personnel destroyed potential evidence in the two weeks since the alleged attack. The OPCW said in a statement that it visited one of the sitesŽ in Douma to collect samples for analysis at agencydesignated laboratories, adding it would consider future steps including another possible visit to Douma.Ž It said the mission will draft a report based on the “ndings, as well other information and materials collected by the team.Ž The OPCW mission is not mandated to apportion to blame for the attack. A U.N. security team had scouted Douma on Tuesday to see if it was safe for weapons inspectors to visit. The team came under small arms and explosives “re, leading the agency to delay its mission. Journalists visiting Douma the previous day, escorted by government minders, experienced no security issues. Russian ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the delays to the OPCW team were unacceptable,Ž in a statement Saturday. Douma is just minutes away from Damascus, where the OPCW team is based. Images emerging from Douma in the hours after the attack showed lifeless bodies collapsed in crowded rooms, some with foam around their noses and mouths. Abou Salah entered one of the buildings affected by the alleged gas attack the following day and took footage of a yellow cylinder with a gas valve on the top ”oor. He said it had crashed through the roof and showed a gash in the ceiling where it purportedly came through. His assertions could not be independently veri“ed. But the cylinder looked like others identi“ed by the international NGO Human Rights Watch at other locations of chlorine gas attacks attributed to the government in 2016. Raed Saleh, the head of the Syrian Civil Defense search-and-rescue group, also known as the White Helmets, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his organization had shared the coordinates of the graves of April 7 victims with the OPCW, so that inspectors could take biological samples. Civil Defense workers evacuated Douma after the attack, fearing persecution by the security services of the government. The government says the group is a terrorist organization. The group, which operates in opposition areas only, maintains a strong position against Assad. Thousands of people „ rebels and civilians „ left Douma on buses to north Syria in the days after the attack, believing they could not live under government authority after it retook the town. North Syria is divided between opposition, Turkish, and al-Qaida control. The evacuations were the latest in a string of population transfers around the Syrian capital that have displaced more than 60,000 people as the government reconsolidates control after seven years of civil war. U.N. of“cials and human rights groups say the evacuations amount to a forced population displacement that may be a war crime. On Saturday, rebels began evacuating three towns in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside, state TV reported. State-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said 35 buses left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud, and al-Nasriya carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition territory in north Syria. The station said there could be 3,200 rebels leaving three towns on Saturday. It said the evacuations would continue for three days. Syrian government forces will take over the towns once the departures are complete.Samples collected from Syria siteASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOKim Jong Un LONDON (AP) „ Irelands premier has urged his country to show compassion as he launched a campaign to overturn some of Europes strictest abortion rules. Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Saturday that Irelands May 25 referendum on whether to lift a constitutional ban on most abortions is an opportunity to put compassion at the center of our laws.Ž He said the current restrictions do not prevent abortions. Abortion in largely Catholic Ireland is legal only in rare cases when a womans life is in danger. Thousands of Irish women travel each year to get abortions in neighboring Britain. Voters will be asked whether they want to retain or repeal the constitutional ban. If its repealed, parliament would be responsible for creating new abortion laws.Irish premier launches bid to overturn abortion restrictionsSANAA, Yemen „ Unidenti“ed armed men shot dead a humanitarian aid worker in Yemens southwestern province of Taiz early Saturday, the International Committee of the Red Cross said. Hanna Lahoud of Lebanon, who was in charge of the ICRCs detention program in Yemen, was shot at while on his way to visit a prison. He was rushed to hospital but died from his wounds. Other staff members accompanying him were unharmed, the ICRC said in a statement. Yemeni security of“cials said Lahoud was killed in the district of al-Dabab which is under the control of forces loyal to the internationally recognized government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. They said he suffered at least four gunshot wounds before being carried to the hospital where he died. The of“cials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. We condemn this brutal and apparently deliberate attack on a dedicated humanitarian worker,Ž the ICRCs Middle East Director Robert Mardini said. The United Nations also condemned the unjusti“edŽ killing of Lahoud. Parties to the con”ict are obliged under international humanitarian law to do everything possible to protect civilians and ensure they have the assistance they need to survive,Ž U.N. Human Coordinator for Yemen Lise Grande said. Yemeni of“cials said an investigation would be held into the incident, according to a statement by the Ministry of Local Administration. Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war since March 2015 pitting a Saudi-led coalition backing Hadis government against Shiite rebels, known as Houthis. The stalemated war has created the worlds worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million Yemenis in need of assistance.Red Cross says shooting in Yemen kills stafferBy AHMED AL-HAJTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS TOM HONAN/PA VIA APIrish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, center, poses with banners during an event to support a yes vote for the 8th Amendment, in Dublin.

You may not know my name, but youve probably heard of some companies Ive gobbled up, such as J. Walter Thompson, Ogilvy & Mather, Hill & Knowlton, Burson-Marsteller and Young & Rubicam. (There are hundreds of others under my roof.) Today, based in London, Im the world leader in advertising and communications services, with a market value recently near $20 billion and with some 3,000 offices in 112 countries. I bill more than $70 billion annually. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. prefer sinking prices.Ž Its always best to buy into healthy and growing companies when their stocks are trading at fair or depressed prices „ and bargains abound in bear markets. Why hope to buy shares of a company you admire at $30 and then $40 after it rises, when youd do better buying at $30 and $20? If you plan to buy coffee for the next 25 years, 10 years of falling coffee prices would be welcome, right? (Unless you run a coffee plantation, of course.) One effective way to build your wealth is to invest money regularly, over many years. Many patient investors have amassed great fortunes over the long run, while those trying to get rich quick in stocks are just gambling and often dont do well. The media usually treats big or sustained drops in the stock market as only bad and as a good reason to panic. The only ones who should panic, though, are those who need to sell their holdings soon „ and they shouldnt even be invested in stocks. Its best to invest in stocks only with money you can leave in the market for five, or even 10, years.The Motley Fool TakeToying With ProfitsIt might be game over for toy retailer Toys R Us, which is undergoing liquidation as its business evaporates, but that doesnt mean that toy and game giant Hasbro (Nasdaq: HAS) is doomed, even though its stock is being dragged down by the news. Hasbro has multiple channels through which to sell its games and toys, and Toys R Us wasnt the companys biggest retailer. In 2017, Walmart, Toys R Us and Target were its three largest customers, accounting for 19 percent, 9 percent and 9 percent of global sales, respectively. Tie-ins with movies are one of many ways Hasbro is growing, thanks to the enduring popularity of franchises such as Star Wars, Transformers and Marvel superheroes, not to mention Hasbros continuing relationship with Disney. Meanwhile, Hasbros rivals are weakening. Mattels revenue has been shrinking over the past few years, and Hasbro is looking to acquire it. Hasbro has a track record of developing products that kids can relate to, and with its growing presence in the digital market, Hasbro ought to be able to capitalize on kids seeking online entertainment. Its brands include Nerf, My Little Pony, Transformers, Play-Doh, Monopoly and Magic: The Gathering. Recently trading near 52-week lows and sporting a 3 percent dividend yield, Hasbros stock is worth considering. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Hasbro.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentGreat Concepts Arent EnoughMy dumbest investment was in Solomon Technologies, a company making innovative electric motors. It was an exciting concept, but I lost all the money I invested. „ D.A., online The Fool Responds: When investing, an exciting concept isnt enough. A company should ideally offer growing revenue and profits, a healthy balance sheet (meaning little debt and ample cash to meet obligations and fuel growth), one or more sustainable competitive advantages, and trustworthy, capable management. In the case of Solomon Technologies, its visionary CEO ended up accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of defrauding investors through illegal trading. He subsequently left the company. Its always smart to research a company thoroughly before investing, but you can still end up surprised and burned on occasion. Thats why its important not to invest too many eggs in too few baskets. If your Solomon stake made up half your overall portfolios value, it would have been devastating, but if it was just a 10th or 20th of it, it would sting less. Many times, exciting companies you run across have not yet grown into profit-making enterprises and are worth avoiding. In one of Solomons filings with the SEC, it noted, We have never been profitable, and if we continue to lose money and do not achieve profitability soon, we may be unable to continue our business.Ž It also noted unpaid taxes and debts. Look Before You Buy LEAPSQWhat are LEAPS? „ H.B., Pueblo, ColoradoALong Term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) are long-term options. Standard options let you purchase the right to buy (via callŽ options) or sell (via putŽ options) a fixed number of shares of a stock at a fixed price within a fixed time period, typically a few months. LEAPS work the same way, but expire after more than a year.For example, if you think that PieMart (ticker: GOBBL), trading at $50 today, will soon be at $70, you might buy call options for $6 per share that let you buy the shares at $55. That will ultimately cost you $61 per share ($55 plus $6), netting you a $9-per-share profit „ but only if the stock hits your target before the expiration date. LEAPS, with their longer time frames, generally cost more than shorter-term options, but they can be more attractive as they give the underlying stock more time to move. Options are not for beginning investors, and many experienced investors steer clear, too.

They spend their cash for purposes such as paying dividends, expanding their businesses and acquiring other companies. If they suddenly need cash, they draw on their lines of credit. Meanwhile, a manageable amount of debt isnt necessarily bad. Indeed, if a company borrowed at a low rate and made great use of that money, its an effective strategy.Want more information about stocks?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you dont know what to say, youre in a good place. It means youre recognizing the need for discernment. People get in trouble for overusing their lips, not for overusing their ears. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Can you love the art and hate the artist? Hate is too strong a word, but certainly people whose work you admire have done things you really dont, making you grapple with some conicting feelings. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some say, Dont dumb it down.Ž Others say, Give it to me as if you were teaching a 5-year-old.Ž The better you understand a thing the more simply you can explain it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What would you have to be doing to tell yourself that youre doing great? More than likely, this is really about feeling rather than doing. And feeling great will have to do with dropping a few judgments that are holding you back. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to be involved in someones life without fostering a situation that feels heavy to you. Whatever you do, do it for you „ because you want to and because it energizes you to give. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Once you get into a lot of alwaysŽ and neverŽ rules, some of the art goes out the window. Though there are denitely things to alwaysŽ and neverŽ do, most of life happens in the colorful in-between. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Its as if youre in charge of the burner of your life, and when you want to bring things down to a simmer, all you have to do is turn it all down. This is how you avoid getting burned. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People generally say can we talk?Ž when its about something signicant and potentially unpleasant. You want to talk when theres nothing wrong, and thats a lot more fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Research is excellent when you have the time, but it can also be a procrastination tactic. Be honest with yourself. Do you already have enough information to go on? Dive in. Get busy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Its really never too late for a new beginning. You dont even have to wait for the sun to go down. Tomorrow is new, obviously „ but so is an hour from now. So is a breath from now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Decisions have a way of clarifying everything. You make up your mind and then put it to rest. This is mostly between you and you. Your life has to feel good to you on the inside for you to take eective action. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (April 22). Youll wrangle your habits into line this year. Like the ocean waves that beat clis into sand, persistent eorts will change the landscape of your life. You will accept reward for an achievement made possible by consistent movement.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: After a lot of talk and no action, I nally made the decision to further my education with a masters degree. At present, I have one more required undergraduate credit to complete at the local university. My husband and I are excited that I nally made the decision and am following through. The problem is my motherin-law. She has told everyone I have been accepted into the masters program at a prestigious school in my area „ one I am HOPING to get into. Abby, we recently threw a surprise party for her mother and everyone was congratulating me. I was embarrassed and had to correct them, saying that was my hope, but I havent yet applied. I have asked her to please stop, but it continues. I know shes excited and proud of me, and for that I am thankful, but now Im incredibly nervous that if I dont get in Ill look like a failure. Suggestions? „ NERVOUS IN THE EAST DEAR NERVOUS: I am unsure why your motherin-law would continue to spread information she knows isnt true. Perhaps its wishful thinking. If you tell her that what shes doing only increases the pressure on you, she may pipe down, but dont count on it. Because you cant control what comes out of her mouth „ and the cat is out of the bag, so to speak „ you have two choices. Gain admission to that masters program or, if that doesnt turn out to be possible, level with the people who prematurely congratulate you and explain that your MIL jumped the gun and acceptance wasnt a sure thing. The only thing you SHOULDNT do is allow yourself to be embarrassed about it. DEAR ABBY: A recent death in my family has affected me greatly. Her love for others was boundless; her enthusiasm for life unparalleled. Her sense of humor was remarkable. When my spirits were down, she greeted me with love every day and was a positive inuence. Im speaking about my labradoodle, Molly. I was lucky enough to have her in my life for nine years. My problem is, people dont get it. Molly was family. I loved her, she died and Im heartbroken. Im being told to get over itŽ „ she was just a dog.Ž I understand that some people dont like dogs and thats OK. What I dont get is that they cant seem to grasp that I have experienced a great loss. Am I being silly? I feel like I have lost a child. Your input would be greatly appreciated. „ GRIEVING IN NEW MEXICO DEAR GRIEVING: You are not being silly. Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your precious Molly. Unless someone has experienced what you have, it can be dicult to empathize. Because you are grieving, I hope you will reach out to Mollys veterinarian and ask if he or she knows about a support group you can join to help you through this dicult period. Being able to discuss all of your feelings with people who have suered the same loss can be healing.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 NATIONAL NEWS WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) „ President Donald Trump says hes considering a posthumous pardon for boxings “rst black heavyweight champion more than 100 years after the late Jack Johnson was convicted by all-white jury of accompanying a white woman across state lines. Trump announced Saturday on Twitter that the actor Sylvester Stallone, a friend of his, had called to bring Johnsons story to his attention. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial,Ž Trump wrote from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!Ž Johnson is a legendary “gure in boxing and crossed over into popular culture decades ago with biographies, dramas and documentaries following the civil rights era. Most famously, his story was “ctionalized for the play The Great White Hope,Ž starring James Earl Jones, which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and the Tony Award for best play in 1969. A “lm version with Jones was released in 1970. More recently, the documentary Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson,Ž directed by Ken Burns, was aired on PBS in 2004. Johnson was convicted in 1913 for violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for immoralŽ purposes. The boxer died in 1946. His great-great niece has pressed Trump for a posthumous pardon, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., have been pushing Johnsons case for years. The tweet came a week after Trump pardoned I. Lewis ScooterŽ Libby, who had been a top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, arguing that Libby had been treated unfairlyŽ by a special counsel. Stallone, who starred in the 1976 boxing “lm RockyŽ and several sequels, is a supporter of the president and attended Trumps New Years Eve party at Mar-a-Lago in 2016. McCain previously told The Associated Press that Johnson was a boxing legend and pioneer whose career and reputation were ruined by a racially charged conviction more than a century ago.Ž Johnsons imprisonment forced him into the shadows of bigotry and prejudice, and continues to stand as a stain on our national honor,Ž McCain said earlier this month. In Jim Crow America, Johnson was one of the most despised AfricanAmerican of his generation, humiliating white “ghters and ”aunting his affection for white women. The son of former slaves, he defeated Tommy Burns for the heavyweight title in 1908 at a time when blacks and whites rarely entered the same ring. He then mowed down a series of great white hopes,Ž culminating in 1910 with the undefeated former champion, James J. Jeffries. He is one of the craftiest, cunningest boxers that ever stepped into the ring,Ž said the legendary boxer John L. Sullivan, in the aftermath of what was called the “ght of the century.Ž But Johnson also refused to adhere to societal norms, living lavishly and brazenly and dating outside of his race in a time when whites often killed African-Americans without fear of legal repercussions. After seven years as a fugitive following his conviction, Johnson eventually returned to the U.S. and turned himself in. He served about a year in federal prison and was released in 1921. He died in 1946 in an auto crash. The stain on Johnsons reputation forced some family members to live in shame of his legacy. The family didnt talk about it because they were ashamed of him, that he went to prison,Ž Linda E. Haywood, 61, has said of her greatgreat uncle. They were led to believe that he did something wrong. They were so ashamed after being so proud of him.Ž Haywood said she didnt “nd out she was related to Johnson until she was 12. She remembers learning about Johnson when she was in sixth grade during Black History Month, and only learned later that he was kin. Once, she recalled, she asked her mother about Johnson. She just grimaced,Ž Haywood said. Haywood has pressed to have Johnson pardoned since President George W. Bush was in of“ce, a decade ago. Posthumous pardons are rare, but not unprecedented. President Bill Clinton pardoned Henry O. Flipper, the “rst African-American of“cer to lead the Buffalo Soldiers of the 10th Cavalry Regiment during the Civil War; he was framed for embezzlement. Bush pardoned Charles Winters in 2008, an American volunteer in the Arab-Israeli War convicted of violating the U.S. Neutrality Acts in 1949. Haywood wanted Barack Obama, the nations “rst black president, to pardon Johnson, but Justice Department policy says processing posthumous pardon petitions is grounded in the belief that the time of the of“cials involved in the clemency process is better spent on the pardon and commutation requests of living persons.Ž The Justice Department makes decisions on potential pardons through an application process and typically makes recommendations to the president. The general DOJ policy is to not accept applications for posthumous pardons for federal convictions, according to the departments website. But Trump has shown a willingness to work around the DOJ process.Trump considering pardon for late boxer Jack JohnsonBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOThis undated photo shows boxer Jack Johnson. NEW YORK (AP) „ One has recurring nightmares. Another cant take a bath anymore. Still another cant sleep. Jurors in the murder trial of a nanny who stabbed two small children to death in the bathtub of their Manhattan apartment said the nearly twomonth-long experience took an emotional toll they fear will linger long after their guilty verdict. They are still haunted by the words of the anguished parents and the grisly photos that showed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo gashed so severely in the throat that they were nearly decapitated. It was gut-wrenching,Ž said juror David Curtis, a 52-year-old actor who has raised two children of his own. I had nightmares which related to losing something important to me or not being able to “nd my family. It truly did affect me.Ž Alternate juror Chloe Beck, 31, said her days of taking baths to unwind ended after seeing the crime-scene photos (not shown to the courtroom spectators) that showed blood coating virtually every surface of the bathroom. There was even a bloody childrens toothbrush. She “xated on the toddler, Leo, calling him her little guy.Ž I dont know how Ill ever get over this,Ž she said, tears streaming down her face. For juror Edgardo Chacon, 57, its the face of the girl, Lucia, known as Lulu, that he sees when he sits up in the night. Many of the more than 30 stab wounds on her body indicated she tried to “ght back. I was there for 33 days, and every night I think about Lulu,Ž he said. I dont know why it was in my mind. But it was not fair. ƒ Its not fair what she did to those kids.Ž Yoselyn Oretga was convicted Wednesday of murder after the jury rejected the argument that she should not be held responsible in the October 2012 slayings because she was too mentally ill. Prosecutors argued that Ortega, who had been the childrens nanny for two years, knew exactly what she was doing, acting out of jealous hatred of the childrens mother for her wealth and happiness. Among the most wrenching moments of the trial came when mother Marina Krim took the stand as the “rst witness, telling of coming home from a swimming class with her 3-year-old daughter, Nessie, to discover her other two children dead. She described how she saw their vacant eyes and their small bodies ripped apart, and just started screaming. It was a scream you cant imagine is even inside of you,Ž she testi“ed. I dont even know where it came from. I just thought: Im never going to be able to talk to them ever again. They are dead. I just saw my kids dead.Ž Several in the panel of 12 jurors and “ve alternates who sat through the trial were parents, and for at least one, the testimony early in the trial was too much. The man with two small children of his own „ ages 2 and 4 „ asked the judge to be excused, saying he could no longer be impartial. Said juror Curtis: I worked very hard at not thinking about my own children. ƒ It is horrifying to think of being in a position, of having to experience or go through the process of what the Krims had to go through.Ž About 70 percent of jurors report some level of stress, but less than 10 percent report extreme stress, according to a study done by the National Center for State Courts. Some judges will request a crisis-management session after a trial but thats unusual and was not ordered after the nanny verdict. Juror stress is a problem more common than we realize, but cases where there is a mental health intervention are rare,Ž said Theodore Feldmann, a professor emeritus in psychiatry at the University of Louisville who has counseled jurors after dif“cult trials, including those who convicted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the 1990s. Feldmann said jurors may experience whats called acute stress disorder, essentially a less-serious form of post-traumatic stress disorder that includes such symptoms as headaches, anxiety, dif“culty sleeping, nightmares and depression. At the Ortega trial, even jurors who werent deeply disturbed were still highly emotional. Alternate Brittany Yee, 27, was dismissed but stayed and waited for the trial to end. She said she was upset by the evidence she saw, but that she was handling it all right. But then father Kevin Krim entered the courtroom and sat down next to her. When the verdict was read, she sobbed and held his hand. Krim later thanked the jury in a statement he posted on Facebeook. These jurors went through hell,Ž Krim wrote. I hugged every one of them I could.ŽBy COLLEEN LONGASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSIn this image taken from video on Wednesday, jurors in the murder trail of Yoselyn Oretga, the nanny who stabbed two small children to death in the bathtub of their Manhattan apartment, hold a news conference in New York. I had nightmares : Nanny slay trial took toll on jurors Texas 8th-graders asked to list positives of slavery Wife: Man struck by train pushed her off tracksSAN ANTONIO (AP) „ A San Antonio charter school has apologized after a teacher asked students in an eighth-grade American history class to list the positive and negative aspects of slavery. The Great Hearts Monte Vista teacher who distributed the worksheet titled The Life of Slaves: A Balanced ViewŽ was placed on leave and the school said it would audit the textbook associated with the lesson, said Aaron Kindel, the superintendent of Great Hearts Texas, which operates 28 public charter schools in Texas and Arizona. To be clear, there is no debate about slavery. It is immoral and a crime against humanity,Ž Kindel said in a statement posted Thursday on the Great Hearts Facebook page.

The Orange County Register reports Saturday that Jacqueline Gibson, of Lake Elsinore, said she was vacationing with her 71-year-old husband Ernest Gibson Monday when they crossed the tracks to return to their Dana Point campground. She says he suddenly told her to run. She found herself on the other side moments later as the train came through. Once it passed, she found her husbands body. She says investigators told her video from the train showed her husband pushing her out of the way. Metrolink of“cials say the area was restricted.

Sunday, April 22, 2018 SPORTS € @SunCoastSportsINDEX | Lottery 2 | NBA 2, 3 | NHL 2 | Auto Racing 3 | Soccer 3 | Pro Baseball 4, 6 | Scoreboard 5 | By JEROME PUGMIREAssociated PressMONACO „ Rafael Nadals priority after reaching his 12th Monte Carlo Masters final was to whip out his phone and frantically text coach Carlos Moya. Despite a comfortable 6-4, 6-1 win against No. 5-ranked Grigor Dimitrov, he had a pressing concern given how quickly he was texting. What frantic emergency could command such attention? I was texting Carlos to tell him that we need to book a court quick,Ž Nadal said. I wanted to hit some forehands winners that I think I need for tomorrow.Ž So the top-ranked Nadal, a 10-time French Open champion with 75 career titles, hurried to another clay court just for forehand practice ahead of Sundays final against Kei Nishikori, an opponent he has beaten nine times out of 11. While it may seem absurd, it is a reminder of the relentless perfectionist Nadal is even on his best surface. No matter that he has not dropped a set in six matches since coming back from a recurrence of a right hip injury; he is more focused on ironing out even the smallest of flaws. Even though he crushed Dimitrov, as he had Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals on Friday, Nadal was not satisfied.TENNIS: Monte Carlo MastersNadal wants extra practice after he reaches “ nal matchBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI „ Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid certainly arent acting like playoff first-timers, and JJ Redick provided the veteran leadership that Philadelphia so desperately needed. The 76ers might very well be the NBAs team of the future. And that future might be starting sooner than many envisioned. Simmons was the first rookie to since Magic Johnson in 1980 to have a playoff triple-double, Redick led Philadelphia with 24 points and the 76ers moved one win from the second round by topping the Miami Heat 106-102 on Saturday to take a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series. Im shocked that we won this game,Ž 76ers coach Brett Brown said. We really didnt have a right to win the game.Ž Heres why he said that: His team turned the ball over 27 times, NBA: 76ers 106, Heat 102Philadelphia takes control, tops Heat for 3-1 series lead By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA „ Nikita Kucherov and the Tampa Bay Lightning are moving on in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Kucherov scored his 27th career postseason goal and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 26 shots as the top seed in the Eastern Conference beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1 on Saturday to end the first-round series in five games. Mikhail Sergachev became the youngest player in Lightning history to score a playoff goal and Ryan Callahan, back in the lineup after missing the previous two games with an upperbody injury, sealed it with an empty-netter with 1.7 seconds remaining. Tampa Bay, which won the first two games at home before splitting a pair on the road, advances to a second-round series against the winner of the first-round matchup between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs. Kucherov, who had 100 points during the regular season, had five goals and five assists in the series. His sizzling shot past goalie Cory Schneider put Tampa Bay up 2-0 at 12:27 of the third period, and his 10 points were the most ever for a Tampa Bay player in a playoff series Sergachev, at 19 years, 300 days, became the youngest player in franchise history to score a playoff goal, giving the Lightning a 1-0 lead in the first period. Schneider did all he could to give the Devils a chance to extend their first playoff appearance since 2012. He stopped 35 of 37 shots, including Tyler Johnsons breakaway that kept New Jersey within striking distance after Kyle Palmieri trimmed NHL: Lightning 3, Devils 1MOVING ONAP PHOTOTampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev (98) celebrates after his goal against the New Jersey Devils with teammates, including Alex Killorn (17) and center Anthony Cirelli (71) during the first period of Game 5 Saturday, in Tampa.

By DICK SCANLONAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG „ C.J. Cron hit a pair of two-run homers and Blake Snell won his third straight start Saturday night in the Tampa Bay Rays 10-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Crons homer in the third inning put the Rays up 2-1 after Adeiny Hechavarria singled for their first hit off Kyle Gibson. Cron connected again in the seventh off Gabriel Moya, capping a five-run inning. It was his fourth homer of the season. Joey Wendle had three hits and scored twice for the Rays, who won their third straight for the first time this year. Snell (3-1) surrendered just one run for his third consecutive start, striking out six and allowing five hits in seven innings. In 15 starts since his recall from the minors last August, the left-hander is 8-2 with a 2.74 ERA. Gibson (1-1) gave up four runs on five hits in 6 ‡ innings, striking out seven. Daniel Robertson homered in the eighth for Tampa Bay, his second. Brian Dozier led off the game with a double and scored on Miguel Sanos sacrifice fly. The hit stretched Doziers season-opening hitting streak to 15 games, the longest current streak in the majors. He has hit in 22 straight games going back to last season, batting .376 in that stretch. Joe Mauer went 0 for 4 for the Twins, ending his streak of 27 games reaching base safely against Tampa Bay.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: OF Byron Buxton, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with migraines, took batting practice and reported that the problem persists, though some of MLB: Rays 10, Twins 1Cron homers twice in Rays winSEE MLB, 6CURRY CLEARED FOR MODIFIED PRACTICEGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to take part in modi“ ed practices but will be out at least one more week with a left knee injury.

Winslow intentionally stepped on Embiids mask after it had fallen onto the court with 7:51 remaining in the second quarter of the 76ers 128108 victory on Thursday night. The NBA cited Winslow for unsportsmanlike conduct in announcing the penalty Friday. Embiid was wearing the mask for the first time after returning from a 10-game absence caused by a broken orbital bone around his left eye. Philadelphia leads the series 2-1. Game 4 is Saturday.IN BRIEFshot 7 for 31 from 3-point range and trailed by 12 late in the third quarter in an extremely hostile environment against a desperate opponent. Despite it all, the 76ers were unfazed. Philadelphia turned a 10-point deficit into a seven-point lead with a 19-2 run that ended midway through the fourth quarter, then absorbed the best shot Dwyane Wade could throw at the 76ers in the final minutes before heading home with a chance to close the Heat out in Game 5 on Tuesday. Wade led all scorers with 25 points off the Heat bench, 12 of them coming in the fourth. But it wasnt enough. They dont let you off the hook,Ž Wade said, tipping his cap to the 76ers. You make one mistake, or you take your foot off the gas for one second, they make you pay.Ž Wade doesnt have a contract for next season. Hes said if he plays, hell be back with Miami „ though theres no guarantees. And that means Saturday might have been his last home game in a Heat uniform. If he knows what the future holds, he didnt offer any hints. Im focused on the next game, trying to win that one,Ž Wade said. Simmons became the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to post a playoff triple-double „ 17 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists. Joel Embiid finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia. We took care of business,Ž Embiid said. Wade carried the comeback effort, with the Heat down six and less than 2 minutes left. His three-point play cut the margin in half and his next two field goals got Miami within one each time. The Heat got no closer. Goran Dragic scored 20, James Johnson had 15 and Hassan Whiteside finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds for Miami, which now needs to pull off some history. The Heat have erased a 3-1 deficit only once, in 1997 against New York. We all feel that were this close,Ž said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, holding his thumb and index finger maybe a millimeter apart. Thats what makes this game tough. They made bigger plays than us in the fourth quarter.ŽNBAFrom Page 1Tampa Bays lead to one goal with three minutes left. Will Butcher and Taylor Hall assisted on the only goal for New Jersey, which played without injured defenseman Sami Vatanen. Sergachev was second among NHL rookie defensemen in scoring with 40 points (nine goals, 31 assists) during the regular season and had had an assist for his first career postseason point in his playoff debut in Game 1. New Jersey kept it close, killing off four consecutive penalties in the second p eriod, when the Lightning outshot the Devils 18-4 but couldnt expand its one-goal lead. Schneider had two more saves early in the third as Tampa Bay sputtered on a fifth power-play opportunity. Notes: The Lightning was 0-for-10 on the power play in Games 4 and 5, y et won both games. ... Vatanen, New Jerseys top defenseman, was injured during the opening period of Game 4 when he was checked high by Kucherov. The Devils also played without RW Stefan Noesen, who was scratched with a lower-body injury. ... Callahan (upper body) returned after missing Games 3 and 4.NHLFrom Page 1By DAVE CAMPBELLAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS „ Jimmy Butler hit four 3-pointers among his 28 points and KarlAnthony Towns snapped back from a bad start to the series with 18 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves past the Houston Rockets 121-105 in Game 3 on Saturday night for their first postseason victory in 14 years. Jeff Teague scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins pitched in 20 points with another four 3-pointers, helping the Timberwolves match the fire-away Rockets from behind the arc and cruise down the stretch behind a 50 percent shooting performance. Derrick Rose added 17 points off the bench for the Wolves, who will try to even the series with a win in Game 4 on Monday night. James Harden led the way with 29 points, but Chris Paul fouled out with 17 points and the Rockets went just 15 for 41 from 3-point range. The Rockets made four 3-pointers on their last seven possessions of the first half to turn an 11-point deficit to just one in less than 3 minutes up until the break. Butler twisted his left ankle during that stretch, causing some brief anxiety in the arena. He didnt require, or accept, any medical attention and returned from the intermission without any hint that he was hurt. Taj Gibson hounded Harden and forced an airballed 3-pointer, prompting the apex of the noise throughout the night with the Wolves ahead 77-70. Towns powered his way past Ryan Anderson for a layup and a three-point play with 1:57 left in the third quarter, pushing the lead to 10 points, and he flexed his biceps to the crowd after the whistle as he walked like King Kong to the corner of the court in celebration. The Wolves closed that period on a 26-14 run and produced spurts of 15-3 and 11-2 in the fourth quarter to let loose as their plan to push a faster pace played out perfectly against a Rockets team that lost some energy in the venue shift north. Harden, who had 44 points in Game 1 but lost his rainbow jumper in Game 2 and finished only 2 for 18 from the floor for 12 points, wasnt a whole lot sharper in Game 3. He went 9 for 21, including 3 for 8 from 3-point range. Instead, a Wolves team that finished last in the NBA in 3-pointers made during the regular season, posted the second-highest total of 2017-18 while launching their way to a 15-for-27 performance.PELICANS 131, TRAIL BLAZERS 123: Anthony Davis scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and New Orleans completed a “ rst-round playoff sweep of Portland with a victory. Jrue Holiday capped his 41-point performance with an 18-foot pull-up jumper that gave the Pelicans a six-point lead with 40 seconds left. Rajon Rondo added 16 assists, and Davis also had 11 rebounds and three blocks for New Orleans, which is moving on to the second round of the playoffs for only the second time since the NBA returned to the city 16 seasons ago. C.J. McCollum scored 38 for the Trail Blazers, which responded to a blowout loss in Game 3 by keeping Game 4 close until the “ nal minute. Al-Farouq Aminu scored 27, Damian Lillard added 18 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 18 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out.NBA ROUNDUPButler, Towns lead T-wolves past Rockets 121-105 in Game 3AP PHOTOMinnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler, left, shoots as Houston Rockets Eric Gordon, center, and Nene, of Brazil, watch in the first half during Game 3 Saturday, in Minneapolis. By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ Overtime came at the perfect time for the Washington Capitals. Outshot, outskated and outplayed by the Columbus Blue Jackets in a lopsided third period of Game 5, the Capitals went into their locker room at intermission Saturday with no choice but to talk about what went wrong in blowing yet another lead. We knew we had to be better,Ž Nicklas Backstrom said. Better they were in a dominant overtime that Backstrom ended 11:53 in with his second goal of the game to give Washington a 4-3 victory and a 3-2 lead over the Blue Jackets in the first-round series. Thanks to goaltender Braden Holtby making 15 of his 39 saves in the third period and Backstroms first two goals of these playoffs, the Metropolitan Division champions can close out Columbus on the road Monday in Game 6. I think weve always regrouped at intermissions and came back,Ž said Holtby, who has stopped 102 of 109 shots since replacing Philipp Grubauer in net two periods into Game 2. It shows our confidence and our experience in a lot of areas.Ž The playoff-tested Capitals took punch after punch when they were outshot 16-1 by the Blue Jackets in the third period, including Oliver Bjorkstrands deflection goal 2:30 in that tied it. Holtby made saves in quantity and quality, most notably on Columbus No. 1 center Pierre-Luc Dubois on a rebound and again on an attempt to bat the puck out of the air, to get to overtime for the fourth time in five games this series. Thats when everything changed. Suddenly, two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was besieged, having to stop Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson from point-blank range early in overtime. We just came out as a new team,Ž Carlson said. Weve went out and attacked in every game that weve won. That was our mindset, and I think we played a great overtime.Ž Overtime has been the difference in this series. Artemi Panarin and Matt Calvert scored the winners in Games 1 and 2 for Columbus, Lars Eller in double OT in Game 3 for Washington and then Backstrom in Game 5, deflecting defenseman Dmitry Orlovs shot past Bobrovsky to send the sellout crowd in Washington into a frenzy.NHL ROUNDUPCapitals take 3-2 series lead on Jackets


The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 SP Page 3By JIM VERTUNOAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas „ MotoGP promised tougher sanctions for dangerous racing. Marc Marquez is the first to feel their sting. Marquez thought his blistering pace on his Repsol Honda had secured yet another pole position at the MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas. Then it was gone, snatched away with a penalty for interfering with a hot lap by Movistar Yamaha rival Maverick Vinales. That means Marquez, who has dominated the Circuit of the Americas since 2013, will not start on pole for the first time in six years and will instead start fourth. And it offers a sliver of hope to rest of the field that someone else might top the Texas podium on Sunday. That could be Vinales, who got the bump up to pole position. Marquez seemed unruffled by the penalty. He was at ease and smiling during the post-qualifying news conference just minutes after the sanction was announced. I went fastest. Tomorrow will be the race,Ž Marquez said. My style is my style. Maverick has a good pace and maybe tomorrow in the race he can be faster than me.Ž But the penalty means yet another week of racing controversy for the four-time MotoGP champion. MotoGP officials had promised tougher penalties after a wild race in Argentina that saw Marquez in the middle of several crashes and dustups with other riders. Marquez was penalized three times in Argentina, including sanctions for making contact with Aleix Espargaro and bumping Valentino Rossi, causing Rossi to crash. The penalties cost Marquez dearly as he finished 18th in a race he was favored to win. The four-time MotoGP champion is still looking for his first win of 2018. Vinales declined to criticize Marquez after qualifying, but his body language on the bike indicated he was upset. He was on a good lap when Marquez got in his way, and Vinales angrily waved at him as they rode past each other. Riding too slow in the racing lane is considered a danger to other riders. Marquez said he was looking at Suzukis Andrea Iannone ahead of him and was surprised when Vinales came up from the rear. Iannone will start second on Sunday. I didnt expect Vinales,Ž Marquez said. Then I heard an engine behind me ... they said I was in the racing line.Ž Marquez day was a wild one. A hard fall earlier in qualifying sent him and his motorcycling tumbling and spinning into the gravel. A quick bike change gave him time to lay down his best lap of the day. Vinales wouldnt say if he could have taken pole without the interference. Im focused on what Im doing,Ž Vinales said. Marquez is still showing dominant form on a track that hes made a personal playground since his rookie season. Marquez has won all five races here and has rarely failed to top the timesheets in practice. Hes also won 12 straight races in the U.S. dating back to his first Moto2 race at Indianapolis in 2011. Not everyone is so comfortable. Several riders have complained this week about bumpy track conditions. The Circuit of the Americas was built for Formula One and the heavy cars and the soft, clay-based soil underneath have caused bumps and dips that have frustrated the motorcycle riders. Despite efforts to fix them since last years race, several riders have been very critical of the circuit again this year, most notably seven-time MotoGP champion Rossi, who called the bumps a disasterŽ and criticalŽ for riders who deal with them at high speed. For me its the worst situation during all the season. You have three or four bumps that are very big,Ž Rossi said. Track President Bobby Epstein said MotoGP safety officials had given the all clear for the track prior to the race weekend. Epstein said there was work done overnightŽ Friday to address the riders complaints, but he did not immediately provide details.AUTO RACING: MotoGPMarquez penalty puts Vinales on poleOAKLAND, Calif. „ Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to take part in modified practices but will be out at least one more week with a left knee injury.

By TALES AZZONIAssociated PressMADRID „ If it was a farewell, Andres Iniesta went out in style. The veteran midfielder is expected to soon confirm hes leaving Barcelona at the end of the season. He couldnt have asked for a better way to say goodbye. Iniesta scored amid a brilliant performance as Barcelona crushed Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday, and became the first team in 85 years to win four straight Copa titles. It was a great night, for me and for the whole team,Ž Iniesta said. There were a lot of strong emotions, a lot of different feelings. Im happy to be able to help the team win this title.Ž Despite a lifetime contract at Barcelona, the 33-year-old Iniesta has been linked to a move to Chinese football. He will reveal his decision in the next week. Its a spectacle to watch Andres play,Ž Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said. He has to make a decision and see if he wants to come back next season.Ž Luis Suarez scored twice and Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho also made the scoresheet for Barcelonas record-extending 30th Copa triumph, and sixth in the last decade. We played a great match, with a lot of determination,Ž Valverde said. Sevilla was trying to win a sixth Copa and save a season which will end without any trophies and maybe not even a place in the Europa League next season. Barcelona ... played a formidable match,Ž Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella said. The final took place at Atletico Madrids Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the capital amid the ongoing political turmoil involving Catalonias bid for independence. There were jeers by part of the Barcelona crowd when the national anthem was played, but the boos were largely subdued by the reaction of the numerous Sevilla fans in the crowd. Spains King Felipe VI smiled and saluted the fans after the anthem. Suarez opened the scoring with a shot into the open net after a breakaway that started with goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen in the 14th minute. Cillessen made a long pass from inside his area to Coutinho. The Brazilian playmaker entered the box free from markers before making a pass back to Suarez, who just tapped the ball in. Messi scored with a mid-height shot from the middle of the area after a great backheel pass by Jordi Alba off the end line. Messi became the second player to score in five Copa del Rey finals, after Athletic Bilbaos Telmo Zarra. Suarez scored again before halftime with a low shot after picking up a great throughball by Messi and fending off a defender while entering the area. Iniesta scored the fourth in the 52nd after a quick exchange of passes with Messi. He dribbled past goalkeeper David Soria and shot into an empty net. Iniesta received a huge ovation by fans from both clubs when he was substituted near the end of the match. He then lifted the trophy, his sixth in the Copa. Last year, Iniesta became the first player to sign a lifetime contract with Barcelona, a deal allowing him to keep playing for the club for as long as he remained fit. Coutinho closed the scoring by converting a 69th-minute penalty kick after a handball by a Sevilla defender. No other team had won four Copa titles in a row since Athletic Bilbao from 1930-33. The only other team to do it was Real Madrid from 1905-08. Barcelona is also three points away from winning the Spanish league. Sevilla lies seventh, the final spot guaranteeing a Europa League berth next season. It was Sevillas eighth straight match without a win in all competitions.COPA DEL REY: Barcelona 5, Sevilla 0Barcelona easily wins historic 4th straight Copa del ReyAP PHOTOFC Barcelonas Andres Iniesta, centre, with teammates as they celebrate during an award ceremony after defeating Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa del Rey final soccer match at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, Spain, Saturday. I really had a lot of chances in the first set to have (a) little bit better score.

He beat Nadal in their last encounter two years ago to take the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Associated PressCHICAGO „ White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar was in stable but critical condition Saturday, a day after suffering a brain hemorrhage while in the dugout during a game. Farquhar passed out in the sixth inning Friday night after getting two outs against Houston. He was helped by team medical personnel and on-site EMTs, and regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance. The White Sox announced that additional testing revealed the brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm. Farquhar was receiving treatment and being closely monitored in the neurosurgical ICU unit at Rush University Medical center. Manager Rick Renteria met with players before Saturdays game against Houston and updated them on Farquhars condition. Asked if the right-hander required surgery, Renteria said, Well see how they proceed and hopefully the outcome is a positive one.Ž The team said it will provide updates on Farquhars health as appropriate, but requested privacy for the family. The 31-year-old fainted moments after leaving the mound. Renteria said Saturday that Farquhar had a strong heartbeat, a good pulse and was breathing wellŽ when he left Guaranteed Rate Field after passing out. Renteria said no one on the team saw advance signs that Farquhar might be suffering from the condition. Farquhars diagnosis stunned his teammates. Yeah, I mean, it crushes us in this clubhouse,Ž said James Shields, who started Fridays game. And nothing really matters baseball-wise when something like that happens, you know.Ž Hes definitely stable from what we hear, but hes got a long way to go and hes fighting,Ž he said. Houston manager A.J. Hinch said some of his players saw Farquhar collapse. We could see across the way that something was going on,Ž he said. As the group went around him, it just became a scary scene.Ž Then this morning getting that update, its very scary,Ž he said. Farquhar was selected by Toronto in the 10th round of the 2008 draft and made his major league debut with the Blue Jays in 2011. The right-hander is 10-15 with a 3.93 ERA in 253 career relief appearances with Toronto, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Chicago. The White Sox put Farquhar on the 10-day disabled list. Righthander Gregory Infante was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. Page 6 SP Sunday, April 22, 2018 / The SunMARC TOPKINTimes staff writerThe Rays have made it official … or as official as things can be with them … in naming RHP Yonny Chirinos as the fourth starter in their rotation. The Rays had been using three, and two "Bullpen Day" slots when playing five straight days. But Chirinos showed well enough in his first three appearances (two starts) and apparently not enough for the Rays to be concerned about when his last one went bad, that he now will take a regular turn, starting Sunday against the Twins. Manager Kevin Cash said a key was getting Chirinos built up to the point where he could be counted on for 100 pitches. Also, that it took them about three weeks of regular-season play to get a better handle on how all the long relievers could handle the workload and responsibilities. "I think we're in a better spot now with Yonny in the rotation," Cash said. As they are now set up, they have RHP Chris Archer, LHP Blake Snell, RHP Jake Faria as starters. The primary remaining multi-inning relievers are RHP Matt Andriese, RHP Andrew Kittredge, RHP Austin Pruitt, and LHP Ryan Yarbrough.Rays will go forth w ith Chirinos as fourth starterAP PHOTORays starting pitcher Yonny Chirinos th rows against the Chicago White Sox during the first inning Wednesday.

By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Willy Ortiz had himself a career night for the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Saturday. For the first time in his seven seasons as a minor leaguer, Ortiz completed seven innings, and did so in a 5-2 win over the Palm Bech Cardinals. Ortiz surrendered just one run „ unearned „ and limited the Cardinals to just five hits. The right-hander stranded six runners on base while holding Palm Beach to an 0-for-4 night with runners in scoring position. He also came one strikeout shy of his career-best mark of eight and walked just one batter. Reliever Roel Ramirez racked up three strikeouts in a fourout save. The Stone Crabs offense supplied more than enough support for Ortiz, who left the game with a 5-1 lead after seven innings. David Rodriguez has had a strong start to the series against Palm Beach. After a 2-for-3 performance with a double and RBI on Friday night, he came right back on Saturday with two more hits, another double, a run scored and three RBI. Jesus Sanchez also had a nice night with the bat, going 2-for-3 with two runs, a double and an RBI. Defensive miscues plagued the Stone Crabs in the first inning. Miles Mastrobuoni and Kevin Padlo each committed errors which eventually allowed Kramer Robertson to score the games first run off Ortiz. Charlotte answered back with two runs in the second inning with Sanchez and Rodriguez scoring runs. They added to their lead in the sixth inning with three runs with an RBI from Sanchez and two from Rodriguez. Contact Bryan Levine at CRABS 5, CARDINALS 2Palm Beach AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

Sunday, April 22, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D3 www.highlandsnewssun.comNEW YORK„ Im not stylish, but I do like my T-shirts soft, my sweaters cozy and my jeans to not be scratchy „ all of which is hard to know when shopping online. Some online retailers have found ways around that, offering free returns to get shoppers to take a chance and click Buy.Ž Others have opened stores to let people feel the fabrics and try on the clothes. Amazon has another solution: Prime Wardrobe, which sends a box of fashions to try before you pay, basically bringing the “tting room home. It ships up to eight items and users are charged for whatever they dont send back. It sounds a lot like Stitch Fix, Trunk Club or other services that send clothing in a box. But there are differences: There are no stylists with Prime Wardrobe, so youll have to pick out your own shirts or skirts. Its not a subscription, so theres no monthly commitment or additional fees „ although you need to be a Prime member, which costs $99 a year or $12.99 a month. Prime Wardrobe also lets you mix mens, womens or kids items in the same box, which may be useful for families who want to avoid the mall. And accessories like shoes, jewelry, purses and hats can be tried before buying, too. The service has been rolling out to users slowly. Amazon says it is still available only to those who are invited, but it recently gave access to more Prime members, including me. So I tested it out.The searchFinding which clothing quali“es for Prime Wardrobe can be tricky, since its limited to certain designers as well as speci“c colors and sizes. Browsing is simple, since Amazon set up a section within its site for the service, but its easy to get lost when you see something you like. A Goodthreads T-shirt, for example, was available for Prime Wardrobe, but when I changed the color and size I could no longer add it to my box, even though I could still buy it for $12. Amazon says selection varies and that its adding more items to Prime Wardrobe.The goodsDespite the designer and style limitations, theres plenty of choose from including wellknown brands like Adidas, Calvin Klein and Levis. But Prime Wardrobe tends to push Amazons own clothing lines, which often showed up “rst. I fell for it: I added an Amazon Essentials jacket and sweatshirt, since I had been meaning to give its brands a try. The other stuff I added to my box: A Ben Sherman polo shirt; Joes Jeans pants; Arnette sunglasses; Adidas sneakers; and two leather jackets „ one from Cole Haan, the other by Calvin Klein. Altogether, my box was worth nearly $900.The deliveryDont expect Amazons speedy shipping for Prime Wardrobe. It can takes as much as six business days, Amazon says, because it aims to ship in as few boxes as possible. I received all my items in a week, which comes to “ve business days. Plan ahead if youre looking to try on out“ts for a speci“c event.The returnAfter trying on everything in my box, I decided to keep the $66 Adidas sneakers and send the rest back. Some items didnt “t right, or I didnt like the style. I logged into Amazons site and selected which items to return and which to buy. A free shipping return label was included in the box, and the box itself had a sticky strip. I dropped the giant box off at a UPS store.The bottom lineIts nice to get a box of clothes that I could try before committing. But the most useful part of Prime Wardrobe may be the accessories. I can see myself using Prime Wardrobe to test neckties to match a suit, try on shoes to make sure they “t, or pick out sunglasses before a vacation. RETAIL REVIEWAmazon brings fitting room home with Prime WardrobeBy JOSEPH PISANITHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this April 12, 2018 photo, items ordered through Prime Wardrobe are displayed in New York. Amazon hopes to turn your home into a tting room, after shipping you a box of fashions to try on before paying. NEW YORK „ The lunchtime lines at Dos Toros move faster these days „ customers dont fumble for bills or coins, and employees dont make change. Since around New Years, the Mexican food chain has been cashless. For the vast majority of customers, theres no reaction at all; theyre already paying with their cards. And the signi“cant majority of cash customers dont have any problem with it either,Ž says co-owner Leo Kremer, who has 14 stores in New York and one in Chicago. If people do try to use cash, employees explain the reasons for the change „ faster service for customers, saving the business time and money. The trend toward cashless small and mid-sized businesses is fairly new. Many of the companies adopting the policy are restaurants with menus and prices more upscale than fast-food chains, but service that aims to be almost as quick as a McDonalds or Subway. During a busy lunch hour with customers lined up at ordering stations and cashiers, forgoing cash means faster transactions. Many business owners would rather be cashless. Cash actually costs money „ banks charge fees for cash deposits and to handle coins. If businesses take in enough cash to justify pickups by armored car services, thats another cost, and given that restaurants can be a target for holdups, not one that can be eliminated. And counting and checking cash and preparing it for deposit takes up time a manager could spend with staff or customers. We feel a managers time is so valuable, and it was being spent on what is only 10 percent of our revenue,Ž says Kremer, who also says revenue at Dos Toros hasnt been hurt by the transition. Millions of consumers use little or no cash. In a survey released last month by the “nancial services company Capital One, only 21 percent of 2,000 people questioned said cash was their most common way to pay for things. But going cashless isnt a slam-dunk. Some customers who want to use cash point to a statement on paper money: This note is legal tender for all debts public and private.Ž However, the Federal Reserve says on its website that private companies can make their own policies about cash unless there is a state law saying otherwise. Massachusetts does have such a law. Thomas Nguyen switched two of his restaurants to no-cash „ and then had a change of heart. Nguyen, whose has three Peli Peli South African “ne dining restaurants and a Peli Peli Kitchen fast casual location in the Houston area, transitioned one restaurant at the end of 2016 and the other last August. Less than 7 percent of his revenue was coming from cash, and he believed customers would largely be OK with the change. But last month, Nguyen heard from staff at both locations that they were getting daily complaints. That, he says, goes against the idea of running a hospitality business. Its too common of an occurrence when somebody every day is getting surprised or inconvenienced,Ž Nguyen says. Hes well aware that customers can “nd plenty of other places to go. You cant compete if you think youre going to create a whole set of rules and expect people to follow them,Ž he says. One concern about cashless restaurants is that they exclude wouldbe customers who dont have bank accounts or credit cards. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. found in a 2015 survey that about 9 million households didnt have bank accounts. Nearly 60 percent of households without bank accounts or cards said they didnt have enough money to keep in an account. Customers will be more understanding if store employees explain the rationale for going cashless, and how it might bene“t them, says Utpal Dholakia, a marketing professor at Rice Universitys Jones Graduate School of Business. I think customers are very happy to trade off their ability to use cash to get this service in return,Ž he says, and notes the popularity of apps that let people order and pay for food online or on their phones and bypass the line completely to pick it up. David Friedman got many complaints when he began testing a no-cash policy at one of his eight Epic Burger locations in Chicago last June before deciding to go cashless permanently at all the stores. It has generated the most negative pushback of anything weve ever done,Ž Friedman says. He estimates his revenue fell about 2 percent as people who wanted to pay cash left and never returned. But Friedman isnt turning back. Epic Burger locations had an armed robbery, burglaries and break-ins „ six incidents in all „ in eight years. I made the decision to put my customers and my employees safety as my No. 1 priority,Ž says Friedman, whose restaurants also got dozens and dozensŽ of counterfeit bills from customers. Friedmans revenue shortfall has been more than offset because he no longer pays for bank fees and 30 armored car pickups each week. When Tender Greens went cashless earlier this year, it took other steps to improve the experience for customers, says Denyelle Bruno, president of the chain that has 28 stores in California, New York and the Boston area. Customers no longer need to sign charge receipts under $25, and lines move faster since managers have more time to help out. Tender Greens, whose menu includes salads, sandwiches, “sh and chicken, isnt seeing frustrated customers give up and leave the line, Bruno says. Signs throughout the stores alert customers to the no-cash policy. But occasionally, people are still surprised when its time to pay „ and some have no other form of payment on them. We give the food to the guestŽ in those cases, Bruno says. Our goal is never to turn people away when they get to that point.Ž SMALL TALKTradeoff: No cash but faster lines as restaurants forgo cashBy JOYCE M.

Today the resort town is a haven for U.S. and Canadian retirees, with strip malls, fast-food joints and a lot of people speaking English. For all the world, its like youre in a U.S. beach town,Ž says Kathleen Peddicord, publisher of Live and Invest Overseas, a site and newsletter for people who want to work, invest or retire abroad. That kind of retirement destination appeals to many who are looking for an established expatriate community where they may not have to learn another language, says Dan Prescher, a senior editor at International Living, another site for people interested in life abroad. Places like Coronado or Boquete in Panama, Puerto Vallarta or Ajijic in Mexico and Ambergris Caye island in Belize have been welcoming North American retirees for years. If youre looking for places before they become popular, however, you may need to be even more adventurous than the typical expat. Infrastructure that you take for granted „ such as high-speed internet, paved roads, or easy access to quality health care „ may not be abundantly available. When people retire abroad and then boomerang back home, unrealistic expectations are often the culprit, Prescher says. They leave with the expectation that the rest of the world is just like home but at half the cost,Ž Prescher says. Nothing could be further from the truth.Ž The rewards of seeking out less-known destinations, though, can be considerable. Living costs can be lower, and you may enjoy a more authentic experience of the country before your fellow compatriots rush in. Here are “ve destinations that Peddicord and Prescher picked as the next hot retirement destinations abroad, where couples can live comfortably on less than $2,000 a month: 1. AREQUIPA, PERU. Low living costs combined with good infrastructure make Peru one of International Livings top 10 places to retire for 2018. Arequipa offers big-city amenities „ its the countrys second largest, with more than 800,000 people „ and a spring-likeŽ moderate climate year round. Its also UNESCO World Heritage site, singled out by the United Nations organization for its historic core “lled with colonial architecture. A potential downside: its 7,661-foot elevation, which could be a problem for those who dont handle altitudes well. 2. CASCAIS, PORTUGAL. Portugal is one of Europes most affordable places to live, combining modern amenities with an Old World vibe, Prescher says. Cascais a coastal resort town about 20 miles west of Lisbon, is a former royal retreat complete with a 15th century fortress turned palace, a busy marina, spotless streets and a moderate year-round climate. A potential downside: Some expats complain about the slow-moving bureaucracy for establishing residency. 3. CAYO, BELIZE. Belize is popular with U.S. expats for good reasons: English is the of“cial language and the country exempts quali“ed retirees from many taxes, Peddicord says. Away from the more crowded Caribbean coastline, the inland Cayo district offers rainforests, lovely rivers and fertile soil for gardeners. Infrastructure is not great in Cayo, Peddicord says: Expect unpaved roads and “ckle electricity. Its a good “t for those looking for a simpler, back-tobasics lifestyle, she says. A potential downside: Health care is not a strong suit,Ž so many expats cross the border to Mexico for high-quality medical care. 4. LAS TERRENAS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. French settlers on Dominican Republics northeast peninsula give Las Terrenas a European ”air, complete with French bakeries and residents who greet each other with kisses on both cheeks, Peddicord says. A new international airport nearby offers easy travel, good for quick trips back to the states or provinces. A potential downside: Health care in many areas isnt great, although a new hospital in Las Terrenas points to an improved quality of local treatment. 5. PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA. Retirees looking for big-city living at budget prices should check out Cambodias capital city, Prescher says. A booming economy and rising tourist trade mean plenty of options for eating, drinking and socializing. At the same time, Phnom Penh offers some of the lowest living costs of all the expat-friendly options, so that even modest retirement incomes can buy a life of relative luxury, Prescher says. Cambodians tend to be extremely welcoming and friendly, with many speaking English as their second language. A potential downside: Flight times to North America are typically 20 hours or more, making this not a great option for those who want to make frequent trips home.

Ive been seriously questioning the corporate world and the sheer greed that drives the majority of the challenges I face. What should I do? LeAnn, 47, SVP, customer service A: This question places you at a major crossroad. Find a balance between acting rashly and compromising your values. Lets be clear from the start: Theres no single right decision. Each person will have a different set of emotional, spiritual and practical considerations to weigh. And those will change, depending on your stage in life. So set aside any judgment about the decision you ultimately make. Keep in mind, too, that a decision you make this year will not dictate every single decision you make in the future; your options will still be open. Now, digging into the core issue, what is the impact of the greed you are perceiving, both on you and on other people? For example, perhaps a bottom-line focus is causing employees to be shorted. Maybe pro“ts are high but raises, bonuses and development opportunities are low. Or maybe staff are being asked to do more and more without extra reward. In those cases, you may feel like you are the unintended oppressor of people on your team. Perhaps you have become aware of shortcutsŽ that save money but harm the customer, and that is weighing on your conscience. Or maybe its as simple as, your company exists to make money independent of the common good, and this is clashing with an orientation toward social action. Take a look at what you would lose if you walk away from the corporate world. First, at your level in a corporate job, you are likely to be fairly well paid. You may or may not have job security in these somewhat tumultuous times, but you have a reasonable chance of landing on your feet. Are you able and willing to walk away from your current level of “nancial well-being? If you have been taking pride in title and position, this may also be hard to let go of. And what is the cost of staying in your role? You may feel like you are actively doing harm. In that case, you could consider ways to improve the situation from within your current position. It may be preventing you from doing things that make a more direct difference, and maybe on-the-side volunteer roles no longer feel like enough. After weighing all of this, imagine your future given both options. Then decide what steps you need to take to make either option successful. Have conversations with your spouse or partner, if you have one. Consider the impact on your kids, if appropriate. And look inside, letting your heart and soul have a voice. If you really want to change but conclude that nows not the time, think about ways to express your values more fully day to day. Also, consider whether a “ve-or 10-year threshold may be more realistic, and build toward that. Then create practical plans that will lead to a satisfying outcome, regardless of your choice.

Submit questions or comments about this column at or email her at liz@ to do when youre moving up the corporate ladder, but dont like the viewBy LIZ REYERSTAR TRIBUNE Conventional wisdom about credit cards is often black and white, from whether you should use cards at all to which types deserve a slot in your wallet. But personal “nance is just that „ personal, experts say. Financial advice is best when it is not onesize-“ts-all,Ž said Bruce McClary, spokesman for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling Everybody is different in the way they set priorities and manage budget decisions, so it makes sense that some advice may not be a perfect “t for all people.Ž Credit card tips might be easier to understand when theyre binary „ do this, dont do that „ but that advice usually doesnt apply to everybody. In fact, some advice could hurt more than help. Heres a sampling of conventional wisdom on credit cards and why it might not apply to you. „ŽNever use credit cards.Ž Cardholders can get in trouble by charging too much, then paying “nance charges. That downside is real and important, but this advice ignores the majority of cardholders, who pay off balances monthly. Credit cards have many bene“ts, including convenience, building credit, rewards and fraud protections. There is a stigma associated with credit cards, but they can be effective money-management tools as long as you use them correctly,Ž said Paul Golden, spokesman for the National Endowment for Financial Education Much of the bad reputation originates from irresponsible use, overspending and using a product that isnt quite right for you.Ž „ŽAlways use credit cards.Ž For those who regularly incur credit card debt or know they cant trust themselves not to overspend with plastic, credit cards can be a lousy idea. Instead, cash and debit cards can help to curb spending. Besides, not everyone can qualify for credit cards. „ŽNever pay an annual fee.Ž Plenty of good credit cards charge nothing. But cards with annual fees typically offer rewards and bene“ts. They might include sign-up bonuses, airport lounge access and hundreds of dollars in travel credits. Not paying an annual fee is good advice in general, but there are some circumstances when the value of earned rewards might outweigh the cost of using the card,Ž McClary said. „ŽDont transfer balances from card to card.Ž The idea behind this is that moving debt to different cards doesnt address the problem of paying it off. In fact, it could add to debt because balance-transfer cards often charge a fee of 3 to 5 percent of the amount transferred. But the upside is, balance-transfer cards can provide breathing room for carrying balances without “nance charges „ often more than a year. Thats useful when you cant pay now but likely could pay later. „ŽAlways use a rewards card. Ž If you use a card as a payment tool and pay the balance in full every month, a rewards card is ideal. But for those who carry balances and pay “nance charges, the interest When to ignore credit card adviceBy GREGORY KARPNERDWALLET THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 15, 2017, le photo, credit cards are displayed in Haverhill, Mass.


Sunday, April 22, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D7 Cell phones, biometrics fuel jump in bank account ownershipNEW YORK „ Roughly seven out of every 10 adults worldwide now have some form of bank account, the World Bank said Thursday, largely due to the proliferation of cell phone-based bank accounts and other simple bank account programs in places like India and Sub-Saharan Africa. The “nding is a sign of the improved “nancial wellbeing of those living in developing countries and particularly women, who increasingly have a safe place to store their savings and are able to participate in the growing digitalization of the global economy. But women still lag behind their male counterparts in bank account ownership, the World Bank report said. An estimated 69 percent of adults had some sort of bank account in 2017, up from an estimated 51 percent in 2011 and up from 62 percent in 2014. That translates into an additional 515 million adults now having a bank account compared to three years ago. The “gures were released as part of the World Banks Global Findex Report a study on “nancial inclusion released every three years that involves interviews or surveys of 150,000 people covering 144 countries representing 98 percent of the worlds population. A chunk of the growth came from India, the worlds second-most populous country, where bank account ownership has more than doubled from 40 percent to 80 percent in six years. Since 2014, the Indian government has been pushing a program to sign up individuals for simple, no-fee accounts tied to government biometric identi“cation cards. While usage of those accounts is mixed, the World Bank report was not measuring whether or not a bank account is used, just if an adult had one or not. Sub-Saharan Africa saw big growth as well, fueled by mobile phone-based accounts. These mobile moneyŽ accounts, as they are sometimes known, are tied to a persons cell phone account instead of a bank, and allow users to transfer money to family or businesses. In countries such as Kenya, roughly three quarters of Kenyans have a mobile money account, and other Sub-Saharan countries like Zimbabwe and Uganda also saw jumps in mobile phone account usage in the last few years. Mobile money accounts also appear to be gaining popularity in other parts of the continent as well, not just East Africa, to places like West Africa. World Bank experts expect that mobile money accounts will be the primary way to drive the remaining 1.7 billion people without a bank account into “nancial services. The bank estimates that 1.1 billion of those 1.7 billion unbanked adults have a mobile phone, and could be more easily brought into the “nancial system. The World Bank also recommended in its report that countries move their pension payments and other forms of government transfers from cash to electronic in order to spur broader bank account ownership. Utility companies can also consider other electronic forms of payment to spur bank account usage, the World Bank said. While nearly every demographic and continent saw increased usage of bank accounts and other forms of savings, the gender gap among those using “nancial services remains high, according to the World Bank. Women are nine percentage points less likely to have a bank or mobile money account, a gap that hasnt changed since the 2014 report. But the biggest barrier to spur bank account ownership remains wealth itself. The poor are much less likely to have a bank or mobile money account, largely due to the lack of money they have to store in it. Two-thirds of those surveyed who did not have a bank account said a lack of savings was their primary reason for not having one. The World Bank estimates that 93 percent of all American adults have some sort of bank account. That matches a report compiled by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., a federal bank regulator, which estimated that roughly 7 percent of all Americans did not have a bank account.
