NEWS WIRE AVON PARK Â„ Brothers Jim and Thomas Renfro were recognized recently at the Sun Ân Fun Fly In in Lakeland with two awards for their longtime careers in aviation. The brothers received the Federal Aviation AdministrationÂs Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award and the Charles Taylor Master Mechanics Award. The awards recognize 50 years of piloting and aircraft maintenance experience, respectively. To be considered for the awards, three peers in aviation have to forward letters of recommendation to the FAA on behalf of the potential honoree. If there have been no accidents nor incidents, then the FAA bestows the awards recognizing 50 years in aviation. Jim Renfro said the mechanics award is named after Charles Taylor who built the Â“rst aircraft engine. ÂThis was kind of unique because they have never given this award to two brothers at the same time and it is extremely rare for both to get both awards,ÂŽ he said. The brothers grew up in Avon Park. Thomas worked for the FAA as an air trafÂ“c controller in Jacksonville for 25 years and then was a part-time corporate pilot. He then ran the corporate Â”ight department for Wayne Weaver, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL football team, from which he retired about a year and half ago. Thomas lives in Starke. Jim said he learned to Â”y in Avon Park and his brother learned to Â”y two years behind him. ÂHe was living in St. Petersburg at the time,ÂŽ Jim said. ÂI would Â”y him over to Mulberry, which has the little grass airstrip off Highway 60 and that is where he learned to Â”y.ÂŽ They both became airline transport pilots, which is the highest pilot designation, Jim noted. Jim was an airline pilot for about three years and was involved in general aviation and then returned to the maintenance side of aviation at the Avon Park Municipal Airport where he started Highlands Aviation in 1974-75.

Encouraged by his parents, when he was 12 he began volunteering at the WredeÂs Wild Life Sanctuary, working there until he was 21. A lifelong Scout, becoming an Eagle Scout before he aged out of the program, he went on as an adult to become an assistant Scout leader, then leader, and is now chairman of Troop 846Âs committee. More of that in a moment. Joining the Desoto City Volunteer Fire Department in 2010, he was chosen its Â“re chief in 2016. His wife, Jerrie, is a volunteer Â“reÂ“ghter as well. An electrician, Kaplan also volunteers on the air-conditioning apprenticeship board, the Â“re chiefÂs association and the Â“re EMS group, among other civic organizations. ÂThe Â“rst thing,ÂŽ said Tim Eures, Fire Service manager for Highlands County, ÂI donÂt see how Scott keeps up with everything. ThereÂs his work as an electrician, and heÂs very involved with the Boy Scouts, he became chief of the DCVFD, and there are other civic organizations. HeÂs lucky heÂs young. IÂm very proud of him. I donÂt know how he April Unsung Hero: A fiery passion to helpBy CHRISTOPHER TUFFLERCORRESPONDENTSEBRING Â„ Four-year-old Francesca Moreno was all smiles Saturday as she potted a small plant at Lakeshore Mall. Francesca and other children also learned about bees, did nature-related coloring, created windmills and made bird treats. It was all part of the ChildrenÂs Museum of the HighlandsÂ Earth Day celebration. Donika Carlisle said the event was aimed at helping children learn about their environment. Carlisle, who served as manager of the museum on Saturday, said the goal was to help children learn that the environment around them is important to them. In one of the activities, the children coated pine cones with lard and then dipped the cones into tubs of seed. The seeds would then stick to the lard. Ultimately, the plan was for the children to take the pine cones and leave them in areas where birds could eat the seeds. Volunteers with Sebring High School ROTC helped with that activity. Kaitlin Albritton, a member of the ROTC, said she felt the event was a good way to help children learn about nature. ÂThey donÂt usually get to do this stuff,ÂŽ she said. Children also got an opportunity to plant their small plants in pots and take them home. The children would Â“ll the pots with soil and then stick the plants in the soil. Robbins Nursery donated the soil and plants. The children also learned about honeybees from beekeeper Bobbie Clark, who has Â“ve thriving bee hives. Clark said she helps remove bee hives that end up taking over structures. Although she wears protective clothing she Â“nds that the bees are generally not aggressive even when the hives are being moved. She explained how the bees make honey and how they are crucially important to humans and to the food supply.

It was also a night to recognize Sebring High School coaches, as well as welcome a fourth family member into the Most Valuable Man category of the 91-year-old organization. Sebring Firemen Vice President J.C. Shoop recognized Venessa Sinness, with 18 years of coaching, as Female Coach of the Year, and Steve Berry, with 23 years coaching football and weight lifting, as Male Coach of the Year. President Bob Swaine then said thanks to the organizationÂs members in the audience, sharing his appreciation for stepping in during the Highlands County Fair to help cover for staff and volunteers who had taken ill during the fairÂs schedule. He then gave recognition to Tommy Lovett Sr. for his work with the Sebring Firemen Golf Tournament and Dave Travers for all he does for the organization. It was Travers and his wife who headed the kitchen work for Thursday eveningÂs banquet. Member Steve Brown then had the honor of introducing the Most Valuable Man of the organization for 2018. He jokingly began with Âhe was born in 1958, but looks like he is 40. He graduated from Sebring High School in 1976 and the vehicle he drove was a Â70s model green Pinto with shag carpet and an 8-track tape player. It was a real stud machine.ÂŽ John Gose was welcomed to the organizationÂs prestigious list of honorees, joining his brothers Mark and Matt. Thursday was also the 15th anniversary of their uncleÂs passing, Jim Gose, a one-time county commissioner and fellow Sebring Firemen Most Valuable Man. To cap off the evening, Swaine presented Sebring High School Principal Kim Ervin with a check for $46,000 from the organization. In accepting, Ervin told a story of how the organizationÂs money helps the student athletes at Sebring High. During ErvinÂs Â“rst year, she met a young athlete who told her basketball saved her life. It gave her a safe place to go, gave her goals to shoot for, the team atmosphere gave her structure and the sport gave her a way out of a dysfunctional lifestyle. The student, she said, is now attending college on a basketball scholarship and is a straight A student with a part-time job. ÂI just want you to see how your contributions help our students,ÂŽ Ervin said. She added a thanks to Sebring Firemen members Travers and Tim Scott. ÂThey didnÂt hesitate for a second when I called and told them we needed a place to relocate 1,600 students the morning of a bomb threat.ÂŽ In closing, Swaine recognized and thanked the city Â“reÂ“ghters for helping to Âsave a big chunk of downtownÂŽ last month when a Â“re broke out above the Off the Top barber shop and Black Market Tattoo and Gallery on North Ridgewood Drive.STAFF REPORT KAREN CLOGSTON/STAFFFrom left: Matt Gose, John Gose, Steve Brown and Mark Gose pose for a photo after John Gose was awarded the Most Valuable Man award at the Sebring Firemen annual banquet Thursday, April 19.

Amanda Renee Meredith, 24, of 1001 N. U.S. 27, Unit 127, Sebring, was arrested by the Highlands County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce and charged with possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a prescribed area, possession of a controlled substance, two counts of trafficking methamphetamine and two counts of possession of drug equipment. The warrant charged her with petit theft and issuing a worthless check. The arrest report said that deputies located Meredith at a hotel and arrested her. Further investigation resulted in the discovery of a syringe, two digital scales and several bags containing 131 grams of methamphetamine, the report said. Meredith denied the drugs belonged to her, the report said. The quantity of drugs found indicated that Meredith was selling drugs, the report said.Woman arrested on drug chargesBY JAY MEISELSTAFF WRITER EARN8% INTEREST1ST MONEY MORTGAGESSecured by Real EstateShort Term & Long Term M.

Monday, April 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5 www.highlandsnewssun.comGrowing up in the 1950s and early 1960s in the Heartland, a favorite recreation spot for many years was Sand Mountain. Parents took their children on excursions to climb to the top of the mountain and slide down. It was an ideal spot for picnics located two miles south of Fort Meade. It was a man-made mountain that began in 1948. It was owned by Smith & Company, a phosphate mining company. Sand Mountain consisted of discarded Â“ne white powdery sand. The sand pile grew and grew covering several acres and soon reaching 200 feet high and taller than Bok Tower. Smith & Company gave permission for the public to use it as a recreational spot. Parents and church buses brought children to Sand Mountain for a dayÂs outing. The kids would climb to the top of the mountain and slide down using cardboard or an automobile hubcap. ÂBurlap sacks and cement paper bags were also good,ÂŽ said Jim Deal, Avon Park Museum volunteer. Deal grew up in Wauchula and remembers going there as a kid. It was our ÂMagic Kingdom.ÂŽ One lifelong Fort Meade resident recalled; ÂI used to go there every Saturday and Sunday afternoon and climb to the top and slide down on a refrigerator box. We had more fun there than you can imagine. In the summer we would play on Sand Mountain for three or four hours and then go swimming to get the sand out of our hair and undies.ÂŽ In the 1950s, Dick Pope, Jr., of Cypress Gardens, ÂWorld Champion Water SkierÂŽ met with E.F. Fitch, president of the Fort Meade Chamber of Commerce. They had a bright idea. They wanted to create something big for Fort Meade. They thought it would bring lots of tourists to their town. This recreational activity would be sand skiing. Pope was a skilled salesman who made Winter Haven the ÂWater Skiing Capital of the WorldÂŽ and he envisioned Fort Meade as the ÂSand Skiing Capital of the World.ÂŽ Pope found the consistency of the sand just right for sand skiing, so to make sure, he brought the Cypress Gardens water skiers to ski down Sand Mountain. He was so encouraged when he found it was possible he immediately organized the Florida Downhill Sand Skiing Association in Winter Haven and held an International Sand Skiing tournament in 1951 and 1952. He attracted thousands of people from around the world for skiing tournaments. After two years there were no more competitions. It must not have been Â“nancially worthwhile. In 1964, Sand Mountain was leveled. Gone forever and the hopes and dreams of Pope and Fitch were also gone. And for all the kids that played on Sand Mountain it left them with great memories of a fun place, once upon a time.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 23, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comUnknown miraclesThe wife and I do craft shows mostly in the winter. As a retired medical supply representative, I learned long ago you must pay for medical services. I stopped docs [sic] from giving free care and my children got well. Now, the Unknown Miracle. A lady came into our booth, looked over the magnetic bracelets and Â“nally bought one for her son who she said had an aggressive cancer and she was to take him to a large cancer hospital for treatment in two weeks. When I gave her the paid receipt, I held her hand a little longer and I quoted Psalms 107. ÂThe Lord said, ÂI sent you my word and healed you and saved you from destruction,Â and added, ÂMay your son be healed.ÂŽ She turned and left. It was several months later that I thought I saw the lady just unassumingly standing at the entrance way for a moment. She started to leave and I assailed her to wait a minute, asking, ÂAre you the lady with the cancer-ridden son?ÂŽ She replied, ÂOh no, when I took him to that hospital they could not Â“nd any cancer. HeÂs wandering around here somewhere. Got to Â“nd him before he gets into trouble.ÂŽ With that she turned and disappeared in the crowd. I was stunned. Told my wife Ann about it and she simply said, another unknown miracle.Ralph Z. Bell Lake PlacidAn idea that might workI read with great interest Charlene TempleÂs editorial letter, April 10. I am in agreement with her statements as I also need repairs, but Â“nd help almost non-existent. However, I strongly believe there is a solution to every problem. The following article may be just what people are looking for and need: Tampa, July 1997 ÂInmates at the Falkenburg Road Jail were building playhouses for the local Head Start program and ÂThe Spring Hill,Â a shelter for battered women and children. It was part of the construction and wood-working program at the jail that taught inmates job skills. It gave them some new training. The program was modeled after a similar charity provided my inmates in San Francisco. The inmates volunteered for the construction assignment, and materials were donated by local Home Depot and ScottyÂs stores.ÂŽ It meant a lot, doing something to help the community. It was giving back to the community. The inmates were learning skills that would get them jobs once they were released. Although it was on a much smaller scale, the inmates had to learn to read blueprints and understand the construction of a house. Local buildersÂ unions worked with the inmates to help them continue their apprenticeships after they were released. Though that was 21 years ago, I donÂt know if that program is still in effect. Still, what is preventing Highlands County from instituting a similar program? Instead of playhouses, inmates could help homeowners who are in need. Surely there are inmates knowledgeable in the Â“eld of carpentry. Are not the inmates being taught construction techniques? We donÂt have a ScottyÂs, but we do have LoweÂs. Do not dwell on what we donÂt have, concentrate on what we do have. We have a jail and a prison. This is your solution Â„ make it work. I would appreciate reading Sheriff BlackmanÂs viewsDorothy Small s Lake PlacidTrip with Loomis, chorus was greatLast week I was privileged to be included in a trip to New York City with the Avon Park High School Chorus planned by their teacher, Joy Loomis. In just four days, 28 students and 12 adults enjoyed almost every highlight of the city. The most exciting being the performance by the chorus in Carnegie Hall where it was apparent they had been trained by a true professional. However, the ÂharmonyÂŽ exhibited by these students during the whole adventure was as impressive as their voices. Their ideal behavior demonstrated their respect and admiration for their teacher and her devotion to them. APHS is truly fortunate to have Ms Joy Loomis on their teaching staff.Lois Langston Avon ParkAlzheimerÂs disease is a public health threatBased on the AlzheimerÂs AssociationÂs 2018 Facts and Figures, every 65 seconds another American will develop AlzheimerÂs disease accounting for more than 5.7 million people. As the most expensive disease in America, AlzheimerÂs is projected to cost our nation more than $277 million this year with twothirds of the annual cost being borne by Medicare and Medicaid. The disease kills more Americans than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Acknowledging the signiÂ“cant impact of AlzheimerÂs disease it requires more attention than ever from our federal government. The Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for AlzheimerÂs Act (S. 2076/H.R. 4256) will help us make inroads in this Â“ght against the AlzheimerÂs public health crisis. With Florida having the second highest incidence rate, our state is ground zero for this healthcare epidemic. As a caregiver and AlzheimerÂs advocate I am grateful that Congressman Thomas Rooney has joined the effort as a co-sponsor of this legislation. Endorsed by the AlzheimerÂs Association, the BOLD Infrastructure for AlzheimerÂs Act would create an AlzheimerÂs public health infrastructure across the country to implement effective AlzheimerÂs interventions including increasing early detection and diagnosis, reducing risk and preventing avoidable hospitalizations. Congressman Thomas Rooney understands the importance of identifying AlzheimerÂs disease as a public health threat through his support of BOLD Infrastructure for AlzheimerÂs Act. On behalf of AlzheimerÂs advocates and caregiver encourage your members of Congress to join him in the Â“ght against AlzheimerÂs disease. Rona Elias AlzheimerÂs Congressional Team Member AlzheimerÂs Association According to a report on Sept. 21, 2017 by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Florida is the second largest energy producer in the United States and we still import electricity from other states to meet our energy demands. Most of the energy we do make is produced through imported natural gas. Over half of our energy consumption is made by the residential sector. Let that sink in. Now that we got those facts out of the way, letÂs have some real talk. We are The Sunshine State. The sun makes energy and we are able to turn that into electric: electric for our homes and our electric cars. Over half of our stateÂs energy use is coming from our homes. Homes that should be using solar panels. Solar is a clean energy that is not contributing to greenhouse gases or global warming and extreme weather conditions. Solar is renewable energy that will pay you back and will give you a much higher rate of return than the bank will. Homeowners have a huge opportunity locally now to have a new sense of personal economic empowerment. We invite you to join the Solar United Neighbors Highlands County Solar Co-Op. There is only a three-month window to sign up and 2019 is the Â“nal year to get a full 30 percent federal tax credit for solar installation. Take advantage of this opportunity and letÂs capitalize on the sun. Imagine the personal savings that would be made if Floridian homeowners went solar? This co-op is total proof that you can do good, feel good, and make economic sense at the same time. See you at the Â“rst info session on Friday, April 27 at 5:30 p.m. at B.O.C.C.O [sic] at 600 S. Commerce Ave., Sebring Florida. Audrey Asciutto is chair of the Highlands County Solar Outreach Committee. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Do good, feel good, and make economic sense When it comes to sea-level rise, it has long been known that Miami Beach is Ground Zero for whatever dystopian scenario the inundating waters could bring. And that Miami is not far behind. Leaders for both municipalities have made confronting this challenge a priority. And so have students at one of the nationÂs most prestigious universities. Last week, a group of Harvard graduate students and their professor unveiled in a presentation to Miami Beach leaders both conventional Â„ and unconventional Â„ solutions to our rising waters. The basis of their recommendations rests on these core questions: If Miami and Miami Beach are going to be living with water, what form will that take day to day and how will it look? Professor Charles Waldheim and 50 students, speaking in front of Miami Beach commissioners, said they spent almost three years envisioning ways to prevent our most famous cities from being engulfed by water Â„ pretty much bringing an end to life as we know it. The Harvard group also revealed some inconvenient truths. Most troubling: The state-ofthe-art pumps Miami Beach installed to drain Â”ood waters and construction to raise the street level Â„ to the tune of $500 million in taxpayer money Â„ will become inadequate to hold back the water. Given what the science says about sea-level rise, the studentsÂ prognosis is clear-eyed and sobering Â„ and cannot be ignored. The Harvard group had some outside-the-box ideas Miami Beach and Miami could consider to adapt to rising seas: Â€ Large, concrete water-holding cisterns that can double as art strategically placed on roofs throughout the city and in public parks. The idea is for them to capture rainwater. Â€ Constructing buildings with ÂsacriÂ“cial Â”oorsÂŽ on top of a layer of limestone that would serve as a Âsponge padÂŽ to absorb excess water that seeps in. Â€ Deepening Collins Canal and using the excavated rock, muck and sand to elevate nearby properties. The students suggested the city focus on using more trees, grasses and other nature-based solutions to drain Â”oodwater and create pleasant public spaces. The university project looking at how weÂre dealing with sea-level rise and climate change comes at an important time for Miami, too. Mayor Francis Suarez recently decided to expand the goals of the cityÂs Sea-Level Rise Committee, following a brouhaha at a meeting where the cause of sea-level rise, assumed to be climate change, was declared off limits by committee member Reinaldo Borges pushing back against a climate-change activist. The disagreement prompted Suarez to suggest that the committee expand its scope to include climate change Â„ and to ask Borges to resign. Miami is fortunate to have a mayor who has long been a voice of concern and wisdom as to the cityÂs vulnerability. However, weÂre disappointed that Suarez sought to remove a dissenting voice, however rude and hostile that day, from the committee. The mayor could follow U.S. Rep. Carlos CurbeloÂs example. The lawmaker took the lead in assembling a bipartisan task force in Congress where members put aside their differences about the existence or sources of climate change to focus on the undeniable reality of rising seas. If weÂre going to keep our heads above water, we need to rise above this enduring disagreement and get to work.

ÂI started in the maintenance end even before I started Â”ying when I graduated from high school in 1966,ÂŽ Jim said. He was in the Â“rst class at what was then South Florida Junior College. ÂI didnÂt Â“nish [college] right away, I transferred to the U.S. Army for two years,ÂŽ Jim said with a laugh. Through the G.I. Bill he studied for his advanced pilot ratings. Highlands Aviation is the oldest continuously owned and operated refurbishment center on the east coast.PILOTSFROM PAGE 1 gets it all done. And heÂs married besides.ÂŽ Gary King, for a number of years the leader of Troop 846 and now slowing retiring, said simply, ÂYou couldnÂt have picked a better person. Scott is a very community minded guy with the kids in his heart.ÂŽ Having played every role working with the boys, Kaplan now chairs the committee that oversees the Â“nancial aspects of Troop 846, and helps make fundraising events, trips and community service projects happen. King and Kaplan emphasized that Scouting is a Âboys ledÂŽ organization that operates with adult guidance. For example, the Scouts may choose a Â“eld trip, or community service project, including working out the budget. One of the things the troopÂs committee does is ensure the budget can be met, fundraisers are realistic, and goals are met. ÂWeÂre teaching them how to become adults,ÂŽ King said. ÂIt takes a lot of work (to run a successful troop). ItÂs best if parents jump on board and help. Scott is excellent at that.ÂŽ Highlands County Boy Scouts have gone on many out-of-state Â“eld trips and visited historical sites because of people like Kaplan and King. ÂI love taking kids to places they might never get to see otherwise,ÂŽ Kaplan said. ÂOne of the great rewards is seeing boys grow into responsible adults who know how to do things.ÂŽ As a single mark of Kaplan and KingÂs success with Troop 846, eight Scouts are in the process of fulÂ“lling their Eagle Scout requirements, and seven are already Eagle Scouts. King said the historical average is one Eagle Scout per 100 scouts, so Highlands County is doing very well. But letÂs return to Â“re Â“ghting. Eures pointed out that most people think a Â“re chief gets to sit in an ofÂ“ce and sit back. Wrong. ÂYou have to be a jackof-all-trades. ItÂs not just your Â“reÂ“ghting abilities,ÂŽ Eures said. ÂIn fact, a lot of the Â“res a chief deals with have nothing to do with Â”ames. You have to be a business manager and make your funding stretch; you have to know marketing to raise funding; you have to be a psychiatrist and get all kinds of personalities to work together; you have to be able to keep a handle on the inventory, recruiting, training and the state of your facility and apparatus. On top of that you have to be a mechanic. ÂI was glad to hear about this (KaplanÂs selection as an Unsung Hero),ÂŽ Eures added. ÂOf course, behind every great volunteer is a great woman. ScottÂs wife, Jerri, is very involved and supportive.ÂŽ ÂItÂs about neighbors helping neighbors,ÂŽ Kaplan said. ÂI try to be as involved as I can. The Â“re department trumps the Boy Scouts, because I have to go on call outs, but witnessing the change in the boys from when they join the troop and can barely follow instructions to when they can follow through on tasks by themselves is wonderful.ÂŽ For his dedication to his community, our young men and our safety, the Highlands NewsSun takes great pleasure in honoring Scott Kaplan our Unsung Hero for the month of April 2018.HEROFROM PAGE 1 In recent years, concern about collapsing bee colonies and their possible effects on humans has increased. Clark is a board member of the ChildrenÂs Museum of the Highlands. Other volunteers included the 4-H Club.EARTHFROM PAGE 1 JAY MEISEL/STAFFZoe Hutchinson, 9, works intently on nature-related art at the ChildrenÂs Museum of the Highlands Earth DayÂ celebration at Lakeshore Mall. Making friends as a young adult is harder than I ever thought. ItÂs not as simple as it was when I was a child. As young adults. we canÂt just play with some toy trucks or have the same favorite color to decide we are best friends. And maintaining the few adult friendships I have created takes more work that those childhood friendships ever did. Maybe it is something about growing up that makes us shy or resistant to talk to new people. This, in turn, affects the way we create relationships and the number of individuals we are close to. It is human nature to want to feel close to others. We want to be able to share experiences, food, stories and whatever else comes along, with someone we care about. This feeling is more intense for some people, while others might prefer to spend time alone, only needing these close relationships in times of distress or weakness. Not only that, but there are ever conÂ”icting schedules to compete with. When trying to make plans with a group of four or more it often goes something like this, ÂWhat about Monday?ÂŽ ÂI have class and work that day, but I could squeeze in about 45 minutes between if that works for you?ÂŽ ÂThat doesnÂt work for me though.ÂŽ This means that when you do spend in-person time with friends, the time is often limited or the hangout will leak over into the early morning hours. This leaves you satisÂ“ed from enjoying time with people you like to be around, but also exhausted, as you think of just how many times you can hit the snooze when your alarm clock goes off in a mere four hours. This also increases the use of technology in maintaining adult friendships. There are some people I speak to online everyday, but I might only see them in person once a week. This does not mean that my friendship with these people is any less real than if we were to hang out everyday in person. Rather, it means that we both have busy lives but can make enough time for each other that communication still exists. At the unstable age many of us are in, it can be hard to Â“nd others that you have a genuine connection with. People you actually want to hear talk about their interests, even if they do not completely align with your own. Many of us are focused on ourselves, our futures, what we want to do and how we want to do it. This makes our lives unpredictable. For some, the only thing holding them down is a semester and lease. We keep odd hours and donÂt know where we will end up for the night until we are there. The Â”ow of life in your early 20s is something IÂve realized you just have to go with. And if you can grab a couple friends along the way, itÂs important to hang onto them.

With just one caution period early in the running, SaturdayÂs race was another great display of Mazda MX-5 Cup racing. Over 240 passes for position were recorded as the top four Â“nishers crossed the line within one second of each other as Todd Lamb scored second and Nathanial ÂSparkyÂŽ Sparks took third. FridayÂs third place Â“nisher Joey Bickers (No. 34 McCumbee McAleer Racing) led the race from the start, but lost the lead when he spun and caught out a pursuing Bryan Ortiz (No. 4 Copeland Motorsports). The two made contact and had their days end early. AVON PARK Â„ It was Senior Night for the Avon Park Devils on Friday against Fort Meade and they defeated the Miners by a Â“nal score of 3-0. Avon ParkÂs Trent Lewis was on the mound the Â“rst two innings and struck out three and Josh Rivera took over on the mound in the third inning and struck out and fanned nine, as the two combined on a no-hitter. The victory raised Avon ParkÂs record to an impressive 17-4-1. ÂIÂm really pleased with the way Trent Lewis and Josh Rivera went out and challenged the hitters on the mound tonight,ÂŽ said Avon Park coach Whit Cornell. ÂCombined for a no-hitter. That is something real special, especially on Senior Night. Senior Night is always a rough night and not a night you look forward to as a coach because it hits home that some of these guys who have gone through your program for four years, that you have had so many memories with, thatÂs coming to a close.ÂŽ While it was the Â“nal regular season home game for the Devils, it wonÂt be the last time the team plays in front of the home fans, thanks to a solid showing in district play. ÂFortunately for us we are the No. 1 seed in our district, so Tuesday May 1st we host the winner ofTenerocand Mulberry so this is not the last game they will play at Head Field. It just puts things into perspective for you. I thought the seniors went out there and had a good game tonight. Dalton Whitman andJohnny Perry had some big hits for us. Gabe Gomez went out and was able to steal a base for us and got things going. Josh Jantz had some quality at bats up at the plate for us and worked the pitcherÂs pitchcountup. I am real proud of those guys.ÂŽ The action did not pick up until the bottom of the fourth. Gomez was hit by a pitch to get on base and stolesecondwhen he saw anopportunity. Whitman stepped to the plate and hit a blooper into left Â“eld for a double, sending Kris Wright made a statement at Barber Motorsports Park Â„ he is a title contender in the IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda championship. Leading all but one practice session on the weekend and starting the race from the pole, Wright and co-driver Yann Clairay continued to dominate Saturday in the No. 30 Extreme Speed Motorsports Ligier JS P3, only losing the lead brieÂ”y on a cycle of green Â”ag pit stops and winning the one hour, 45 minute race by 34.603 seconds. The win unofÂ“cially moves Wright into the series points lead at the halfway point of the season. It was the third consecutive podium Â“nish of the season for Wright, who Â“nished third at Daytona International Speedway and Sebring International Raceway with two different co-drivers. Barber was the Â“rst race paired with Clairay, a 34-year-old French driver who Â“nished second in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the GT1 class in 2009. ÂWe met each other and we kind of hit it off,ÂŽ said Wright. Â(We had) dinner every night. HeÂs awesome. He did a really good job setting the car up and did a better job picking up my stint.ÂŽ ÂItÂs my Â“rst time in the USA,ÂŽ added Clairay, who set the fastest lap in the race. ÂFor me, itÂs good to win. Big thanks to Kris, Nick and the ESM team, because I had a very, very good car. The stint was easy for me, because I just tried to keep the tires all the time. After you Â“nish Â“rst, itÂs perfect.ÂŽ The No. 47 Forty7 Motorsports Norma M30 of Austin McCusker and TJ Fischer seemed poised to score its third consecutive runner-up Â“nish of the season to hold onto the LMP3 points lead but contact between Fischer and a Mazda Prototype Challenge (MPC) class car with Â“ve minutes remaining relegated the team to a 16th-place Â“nish. Instead, the runner-up spot went to the teamÂs No. 74 Forty7 Motorsports featuring Alianza entry of Rodrigo PÂ”ucker and Anthony Simone, the duoÂs best Â“nish of the season. Leo Lamelas, who entered the weekend third in points, rounded out the podium with a third-place Â“nish with co-driver Will Owen. Lamelas won at Sebring with Pato OÂWard as co-driver. Finishing seventh in LMP3, but winning in Masters was Rob Hodes in the No. 51 K2R Motorsports Ligier JS P3 with co-driver Sean Rayhall. It was the duoÂs best Â“nish On Tuesday, April 10, the Spring Lake MenÂs Golf Association conducted another team tournament; Four Man Team Â„ Three Best Balls, on the Cougar Trail golf course. The three best balls on each hole were based on player handicaps developed by the MenÂs League Â„ every player had a chance to score. There were 10 balanced teams that included three ÂblindÂŽ scores, i.e., three man teams plus one score of a Âsame classÂŽ player drawn at random. First place went to Gary Behrendt, Gerry Esty, Bo Bohanon and newcomer Paul Schoudel, whose three best balls on each hole totaled 185 strokes. Second place Â„ at 186 strokes Â„ went to the team of Bill Lawens, Pat Shatney, Rich Ellison and Ed GrifÂ“th. Third place was won by Ken Gayman, Bill Kingshott, Bob Rider and Steve Cavaney with 187 strokes. Jon Brower, Rich Strawn, Larry Carlson, and Charlie Keniston took fourth place with 191 strokes. There was a tie Â„ at 192 net strokes Â„ between Bill Brown, Ed Thorsen, Ed Clay and Bob Berg and the team of Gordon Reid, Will David, Bart Bartholomy and a blind. On Monday, April 16, some Spring Lake men participated in a rough day of Sebring MenÂs Interclub competition up at Pinecrest Golf Club Â„ not too many players made their points.

Mason Huertas came in to run for Whitman, Avon ParkÂs catcher. Perry hit a slow-moving grounder to the left of the pitcher for a single and advanced Huertas to third. Hunter Vanderpool stepped to the plate and hit a grounder to second base, Perry was out at second and Vanderpool was out at Â“rst for a double play, but Huertas raced home while no one was looking to give the Devils a 2-0 lead. ÂI just wanted to come out and play and do what we do best,ÂŽ said Gomez. ÂI wanted to get some base hits.

As seniors this is our Â“nal chance to do that.ÂŽ ÂTonight was a good game,ÂŽ Perry said. ÂWe had fun. I tried to help my team with some base hits. This was my last home game in the regular season and it was a lot of fun. I like my team; my team is very good. This season my goal is to win State.ÂŽ In the bottom of the Â“fth Avon ParkÂs heavy hitter Josh RIvera stepped to the plate. Rivera hammered the ball over the left-center Â“eld wall for a solo homer escalating the DevilsÂ lead to 3-0. ÂI think we played good,ÂŽ said Dalton Whitman. ÂI think we had a little bit of a slow start but we were hitting balls hard, just right at them and then later we were able to Â“nd some holes. It is cool that it is Senior Night. This is my last regular season home game. I think as a team we had a lot of chemistry. I am going to miss a lot of guys and I think they will miss me. This was a special night. This season I just wanted to do better than last season, try to get further in the playoffs, and make my team better. Hopefully I can play in college.ÂŽ ÂIt was a great game,ÂŽ Jantz said. ÂWe had a slow start but we came together to get the win. It is a little rough with it being Senior Night but it has been a good four years and I am glad to have played with this group of guys and this coaching staff. This season I just wanted to better myself and help my team every chance I can.ÂŽ Senior Night is always an emotional game but Avon Park kept their composure and blanked Fort Meade.

Five teams did not make their points. It was so rough that the entire A Flight only had one player over on his points! It was so rough that the winning team Â„ River Greens Â„ had only plus 9 based on one playerÂs plus 7. Spring LakeÂs fourthplace Â“nish was made possible by two old codgers Â„ 80-year-old Bart BartholomyÂs plus 4 and Bob RiderÂs plus 2 Â„ and them having to hit from the white tees. Unbelievable!! LetÂs see how we do at The Bluffs on April 30. On Tuesday, the Spring Lake MenÂs Golf Association played an Individual Net Points game on Panther Creek Golf Course under much better conditions.

It was all fun.ÂŽ One day after winning his Â“rst IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda pole, Michal Chlumecky capped off a perfect weekend in the MPC class with his Â“rst win since 2012. Chlumecky masterfully handled trafÂ“c around the tight Barber Motorsports Park to win the one hour, 45-minute race in the No. 34 Eurosport Racing Elan DP02. He also set the raceÂs fastest race lap in his class. ÂIt was certainly an exciting Â“rst half of the race,ÂŽ he said. ÂThere was a lot of trafÂ“c and some LMP3s to get around. That was really exciting for us. The car was fantastic, the facility was great and Eurosport Racing, they put together a great car for me. The second half of the session was just keeping pace. Things opened up, just moderate, and it was very enjoyable day. Very enjoyable.ÂŽ Jon Brownson Â“nished off a Eurosport Racing 1-2 Â“nish with the Sebring pole winner placing second in the teamÂs No. 34 entry. Dr. Robert Masson rounded out the podium with a third-place Â“nish in the No. 11 Performance Tech Motorsports Elan DP02. It was MassonÂs second podium of the season after winning the opening race at Daytona and unofÂ“cially moves him into the class points lead. Dave House entered the weekend leading the class by two points over four drivers, including Masson, but Â“nished Â“fth. The Barber race will be televised on May 10 at 9:30 p.m. on FS2.

The lead pack was rich with talent, as 2009 Global Mazda MX-5 Cup champion Todd Lamb as well as 2016 Global Mazda MX-5 Cup champion Nathanial Sparks fought for the lead and Mazda Scholarship racer Selin Rollan gave chase in pursuit of his return to the podium. But it was young Reger, who had qualiÂ“ed in 11th position, who took the lead on lap 23 and didnÂt look back, crossing the Â“nish line 0.4403seconds clear of the Â“eld. ÂThese guys are incredible drivers,ÂŽ said Reger, who is looking forward to his upcoming 20th birthday. ÂI was up there with John Dean, Sparky and Todd Lamb Â„ these guys are champions Â„ but I knew if I kept my head down and didnÂt get too cocky over my win yesterday I could get the win today.ÂŽ Charging from 11th on the grid to score the victory, the young Texan had a big assignment for the 45-minute race but used equal parts pace and patience to score his Â“fth career victory Â„ which came only one day after his fourth as he had captured FridayÂs Global MX-5 Cup race at Barber. The effort not only yielded the big trophy, but his forward progression also saw him earn the Battery Tender Hard Charger Award, given to the driver who advances the most positions in the race. Reger also captured the Â“rst Global MX-5 Cup race of the weekend, on Friday afternoon. ÂThe main thing I learned about this beautiful Barber track at spring training was patience,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt takes a lot of patience to get around this track. That contributed to the win today because I qualiÂ“ed 11th and I had a lot of places to make up, so it was all about patience. I was a little concerned that we didnÂt have the consistency that others had, but I felt fast. I had good control and I felt very comfortable here. It was that comfort that made me believe we had a chance to get on the podium.ÂŽ After getting knocked out of FridayÂs race following contact, Lamb was much happier with how things went on Saturday as he also claimed the Masters category win. ÂIt was a good day for Atlanta Speedwerks,ÂŽ said Lamb. ÂMy teammate, Brian Henderson, was 11th. IÂm much happier with the result today than yesterday! For the most part everyone up front was running clean. You can tell the caliber of drivers up front with everyone running clean and giving each other room and a lot of heads up driving, race craft and strategy.ÂŽ Dean Â“nished the race in second, but was penalized in the post-race inspection, knocking him to the back of the pack. Charlie Belluardo (No. 73 Flatout Motorsports) emerged ahead of Alex Wolenski (No. 56 McCumbee McAleer Racing) and Nigel Faulkner (No. 82 McCumbee McAleer Racing) to net his fourth Challenger Cup presented by Monticello Motor Club win. ÂMazda makes an awesome car and the BFGoodrich tires are unbelievable,ÂŽ said Belluardo. ÂI tortured them today and I was running the same lap times in the end that I was in the beginning. I have to thank Battery Tender for their support of the series and of course Monticello Motor Club and Flatout Motorsports.ÂŽ The Â“nal award of the weekend was the VP Racing Fuels Clean Image Award, which went to Copeland Motorsports for the teamÂs presentation and paddock presence. The squad had two entries for the Barber weekend with Ortiz and Racer Kashima (No. 7 Copeland Motorsports). During the 2018 season, one team each weekend will earn the distinction from VP Racing Fuels, with Flatout Motorsports having claimed the honor at the Circuit of the Americas and the $500 that goes along with it. The series will return to race action in June with the annual visit to Road America as part of the Verizon IndyCar Series event. It should be another competitive event.

It is making a lot of people scratch their heads in wonder, for many reasons: 1. Does this mean pot is legal? No 2. Will this drug be sold at stores without a prescription? No 3. Is it going to make people high. No The FDAs move to prescriptionize a cannabis-related drug is stunning to most, but to me. Its really no surprise considering the pressure theyve been under these past few years. You see, parents of children with seizures have become activists, and have been all over regulatory agencies, such as the FDA to change the laws. Why? Because conventional medicine like benzodiazepines, phenytoin, valproate, gabapentin and/or carbamazepine werent always clinically successful. Children were becoming seriously injured or disabled from seizure-related accidents. Many died in their mothers or fathers arms. Families were going bankrupt. Somewhere along the way, word got out that an extract called CBD (cannabidiol) from the cannabis sativa plant (ie pot) could stop the seizures and make some of these kids go from catatonic, to normal with one special cookie! Epidiolex is causing a lot of consumer confusion, as well as heartache in Colorado, which is the state I live in. By the way, you make your own form of cannabis every single day, and this naturally-produced compound binds to the cannabis receptor in the same exact way as if you had smoked a joint! You have pot receptors all over your body. Colorado-based dispensaries have been in business for decades, and we are experiencing a population explosion in my state, primarily because we have what I call a Pot Rush going on, which is akin to the Gold Rush in the 1850s, except now the commodity is weed, not gold. Epidiolex is pure CBD. Theres no psychoactive THC in it. This drug will require a prescription. The problem here is that dispensaries in Colorado cant sell FDA approved drugs, like Epidiolex, and likewise, pharmacies in Colorado cant sell cannabis-containing products! Parents in every state (except Colorado) will soon be able to go to the pharmacy to get the drug, once it is approved and on the pharmacy shelf. You will need a prescription. FYI, cannabis-related products can and do help with dozens of conditions, especially symptoms of insomnia, pain, autism, high anxiety, inammatory (cancer) and autoimmune disorders. I have a longer version of this article that I can send to you if you sign up for my newsletter, at my website, suzycohen.com. In summary, Epidiolex is different from medical marijuana, mainly because it does not contain any THC whatsoever, and also because it is FDA approved, and standardized. It is the most potent form of CBD currently available, and it cant be sold by dispensaries. Once it hits the U.S. market, it will only be available at pharmacies nationwide, with the exception of pharmacies in Colorado.

But even babies with the most vigilant parents can become ill. According to the Seattle Childrens Healthcare System, newborns are at higher risk for infections, which may be present at any time during the rst month of a childs life. Watching for signs of illness is crucial, especially during a childs rst seven days of life. The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that certain conditions are especially common during a childs rst few weeks after birth. If spotted, the following conditions should be brought to the attention of a pediatrician immediately.Abdominal distension Babies bellies stick out, especially after theyve been fed. But bellies should feel soft between feedings, so swollen, hard bellies should be discussed with a pediatrician. Parents also should call their childrens pediatricians if their babies are vomiting or have not had a bowel movement for more than one or two days. Such symptoms may be a byproduct of gas or constipation, but pediatricians should be contacted to rule out potentially serious intestinal issues.Blue baby Mildly blue hands and feet are not necessarily a problem. Newborns hands and feet may turn blue when theyre cold, returning to pink once they are warm again. In addition, newborns faces, tongues and lips may turn blue after they cry, returning to normal once babies calm down. But persistent blue coloring may indicate that the heart and lungs are not working properly, especially if the blueness is accompanied by difculty breathing and feeding. Immediate Common conditions in newbornsMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONSMCCNewborns are susceptible to various conditions in their rst hours and days of life. Parents who suspect anything out of the ordinary should contact their babies pediatricians immediately.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 23, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com The Â“rst level of management for treating dry eyes is learning to control your environment. Make sure you are not sitting directly underneath or in front of a fan or air conditioner vent. Slide the a/c vents in your car away from your face. The second level of management is the use of over the counter lubricating drops and the start of oral omega 3. I recommend Systane Balance. You should use one drop four times a day. This product has an oil component. There is an inÂ”ammatory component to dry eyes. Taking Omega 3 or Â“sh oil gives us an anti-inÂ”ammatory response. If a person is allergic to Â“sh oil, Â”axseed oil can be used. Start at 2000 mg of Â“sh oil every day. It can take up to six months to realize an effect. If there is no improvement in three months, increase Â“sh oil to 4000 mg every day. Nordic Natural Liquid can be found in health food stores and vitamin shops, and on Amazon.com. The third level of management includes Hydro Eye and prescription eye drops. Hydro Eye uses a little omega 3 and a lot of omega 6 as well as some vitamins and minerals. The company gives a guarantee that if you use two bottles of Hydro Eye and it does not help, they will give you your money back. If you take Hydro Eye you do not need to take Â“sh oil or Â”axseed oil. If you take blood thinner medication, let your doctor know that you are going to start taking Â“sh oil, Â”axseed oil, or Hydro Eye. These can increase the potency of the blood thinner and your doctor may have to decrease the dosage. If the remedies above do not help consider using prescription eye drops. Restasis was the Â“rst prescription approved for dry eye. It is expensive, does not work for everyone, and most patients complain that it burns and makes their eyes red and they usually stop taking it. Xiidra is a new drop for dry eye. It is also expensive and leaves a bad taste that can last for about 30 minutes. There is a drop called Lotemax gel that is very effective. Lotemax gel is a steroid which is an anti-inÂ”ammatory medication. Unfortunately, this medication has side effects. It can cause cataracts, an increase in eye pressure, which is glaucoma, and also increase your risk for eye infections. Use it sparingly. The fourth management level involves a procedure called punctal occlusion. Since the tears do not drain away you have more tears available to help lubricate the cornea. Collagen plugs melts away after six months. Dr. Corkins served as a captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve and still has a passion for aviation. He is currently building a Glasair III high performance, retractable gear airplane.Part II: Dealing with dry eyes Guest ColumnistDR. WILLIAM CORKINS If you observe an animalÂs movement, especially a cat on the hunt, you will see an innate Â”uid motion of Â”exibility. They instinctively rotate and expand the width of their legs and forearms, holding poses as they ÂstalkÂŽ their prey in stillness. Although many domesticated earthlings are beyond the hunting and gathering stages, we still rely instinctively without thinking, walking, running and moving. The difference between animals and humans is that animals constantly use their muscles so they do not atrophy. Athletes are trained to capitalize on precise motion/skill perfection to achieve their goals. Ballerina athletes spend many hours practicing precise movements and gracefully Â”owing in balance as they twist on their toes. Yoga, is also athletic in a sense, as similar physical skills are developed in practice, maintaining the Â”ow of the muscles, balance holding postures to lengthen the spine for increased oxygen delivery to the organs, muscles, tissues and bones in synchronization. We are born with a sense of the athlete, not as skilled or Â”exible as a wild animal, but the innate ability resides within our physical body. We Â“rst have to awaken in the mind the awareness of our great potential as we use our yoga practice in everyday life. LETÂS PRACTICE OUR DAILY ROUTINES THE YOGA WAY: BRUSHING TEETH : To maintain the health of our mouth, teeth, gums, we brush our teeth several times a day. What a yoga practice opportunity! Holding your toothbrush ready to go inside the mouth, bend forward over the sink from the waist into a ÂTÂŽ form with a long back, neck, looking into the mirror. Keep pulling your energy into the buttocks as you stand balanced with your feet Â”at on the Â”oor and hips directly descending in a straight line from the hips through the legs and ankles. To stand up when Â“nished, bend the knees slightly and return to a standing posture or ÂMountain Pose.ÂŽ DRIVING THE CAR: Adjust the driverÂs and passenger seats in the straightest upright position, including the headrests. As you drive, lengthen the spine and be sure to sit on the Âsitting bones,ÂŽ not on the lower spine. Avoid pulling the neck out of enlightenment with the shoulders like a Âchicken neck.ÂŽ As you drive, break the habit of listening the whole time to so-called, Ânews.ÂŽ Turn the radio to soothing music and relax while keeping eyes on the road. Think pleasant thoughts and avoid responding to trafÂ“c issues and drivers Âgone wild,ÂŽ pressing you to go faster or move over even though you have set your car to the required speed. Keep your thoughts positive and do not allow negativity to infect your peace. Breathe deeply, if you become agitated, bring your attention back to deep breathing. Use this time to meditate on you! WASHING DISHES: Instead of putting everything into the dishwasher, use this extra time to hand-wash the dishes in ÂMountain PoseÂŽ with a twist. As you pick up each dish, twist at the waist and hold the pose while cleaning the dish, breathe and lengthen the muscles of the core. When you return to center, take another dish, twist and hold on the other side. At the end, place both arms nice and long at the edge of the sink, press back with straight legs and hips over the ankles, breathe deeply and lengthen the back. Slowly come back to a standing posture or ÂMountain Pose,ÂŽ raising both arms to the sky. SWEEPING THE FLOOR/RAKING LEAVES: This is a great yoga practice! Grab the broom/rake and bring it to the work area. When you hold the broom/rake, keep the body elongated while you move and bend at the knees using your thigh muscles to pick up leaves or the dustpan.. You might even have some fun by placing the broom between two chairs and raising one leg at a time to the top of the middle of the broom to lengthen the hamstrings and calves; raise both arms to the sky and hold the pose. SCRUBBING UP SPILLS: Fill a pan of water with some vinegar and get a hardy sponge. Spread you legs wide into a deep knee bend to reach the pan of water. Hold the squat while you twist and wipe the sponge over the spot you want to remove. When you stand, once again, rise up using the thighs, back into ÂMountain Pose.ÂŽ TRIMMING HEDGES: This is a practice to slowly move into using regular clippers, not electric ones. If your muscles are not used to opening and closing the choppers over branches/stems you may over-stress the upper arms, triceps and biceps or surrounding muscles. So do this practice a little bit at a time, like at the gym use weights and movement slowly. This initiation to the muscles gradually makes them stronger. Rest in between several Âchops.ÂŽ Be sure to deeply breathe during any strenuous activity.

Not only is good cardiovascular health important to be able to enjoy an active vibrant life, itÂs important for your hearing. Cardiovascular disease can cause hearing loss. Hypertension is another condition that can damage your hearing. Hypertension causes the small blood vessels in your ear to become damaged. When this happens there is fatty plaque that builds up and constricts the blood vessels. This constriction will diminish your hearing. According to the Centers for Disease Control (2017), only 54 percent of Americans who have hypertension have it under control. Seventy-Â“ve million U.S. adults have high blood pressure. That equates to approximately one in three people. More alarming, is that another one in three American adults have higher-than-normal blood pressure. They are labeled as Âprehypertensive.ÂŽ A study that was published in Hearing Loss in 2013 showed the link between hearing loss and hypertension. Ages of the participants in the study were between 46-74. During the study it was proven that as blood pressure increases, the hearing decreases. An important aspect of this study is that when the blood pressure was brought under control, the hearing could be restored if too much damage had not occurred. If you have high blood pressure, make sure and get a hearing evaluation so that your hearing thresholds can be monitored. ItÂs important to pay attention to the ÂlittleÂŽ signals that your body sends you. Make an honest effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Exercise and watch your diet to keep your weight in check. Limit salt intake. Exercising, whether itÂs at a gym pumping weights or taking a walk everyday, will help to diminish damaging stress. Walking 25 minutes per day will help to lower your blood pressure (National WalkersÂ Health Study 2016). Drinking less alcohol will also lower your blood pressure. All alcohol can raise your blood pressure, but the limit for women is no more that one drink a day is safe and for men you can have two. More consumption than that can cause dangerous spikes in blood pressure levels. Remember, one in three American adults are prehypertensive. AmericansÂ work hours get longer and more stressful. Do something daily that helps you to unwind and relieve you of your stress. Protect your heart and your hearing. To hear better is to live better. Roseann B.

This program consists of two separate courses for a total of 165 hours: a 90-hour Introduction to Healthcare course (CRN 30791) that begins on Monday, May 7, and a 75-hour Nursing Assistant course (CRN 30775) that begins Tuesday, June 12. Students will need to meet the entry requirement of a fourhour American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers course before entering the nursing assistant course. ÂNursing assistants touch peopleÂs lives in meaningful ways every day,ÂŽ said Mary von Merveldt, director of nursing education at SFSC. ÂThey provide essential care that supports the nursing team and best outcomes for patients which is vital to the health of our community.ÂŽ Nursing assistants can be employed in a variety of health care settings, such as outpatient clinics, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. A nursing assistant works under the supervision of a licensed practical nurse or registered nurse and may assist with personal care; patient mobility; activities associated with nutrition and hydration; maintaining safe patient environments; and collecting basic patient data. It is an entry-level nursing option that may assist students in career exploration or future academic endeavors. The nursing assistant program at SFSC will also provide the information and skills practice necessary to build knowledge and attain conÂ“dence that will help students be successful in taking the Florida Nursing Assistant CertiÂ“cation examination, if they so choose. To register for these courses, visit the Welcome Center at the SFSC Highlands Campus in Avon Park, the Hardee Campus in Bowling Green, the DeSoto Campus in Arcadia, or the Lake Placid Center, or call the Welcome Center at 863-784-7405 or the Hardee Campus at 863-784-7060. For more information about the nursing assistant program, contact Teresa Crawford, director, SFSC Hardee Campus, at 863-784-7061 or Teresa.

You know you should exercise more and eat more nutritious food, of course, but did you also know that just because a food calls itself ÂhealthyÂŽ doesnÂt mean it is? Ditto calling something vegan or calling it carb-free. You have to look beyond the labels and check out the ingredients to see which foods are the real deal and which are just a gimmick. HereÂs a cheat sheet of four foods that you might think of as Âhealthy snacksÂŽ that are really not. This is stuff the nutritionist would nix in a jiffy. VEGGIE CHIPS You know you need to eat more veggies, but alas, puffs that claim to contain vegetables just donÂt cut it. Look at the ingredients and you will often Â“nd potato Â”our, cornmeal and rice Â”our as the mainstays. All that starch means big-time calories. If you are looking to splurge, just go ahead and treat yourself to potato chips or pretzels. The veggie chips are almost as bad for you. As Time points out, one major brand only has 40 than regular old potato chips, which actually provide 1 gram fewer carbs and 1 extra gram of protein. Yikes. Bottom line: If you really want to be healthy, stick with actual veggies. Crunch yourself silly with carrots or bell pepper slices or cucumber wedges. Throw in some hummus and make it a hearty snack. FRUIT SNACKS This one really hurts if you are a mom because itÂs hard to Â“nd a snack that kids love that you can feel good about giving them. ThatÂs why fruit snacks seem like the sweet spot, right? Nope. Sure there might be a smidge of fruit in there but thereÂs usually also a cornucopia of corn syrup, gelatin, modiÂ“ed corn starch, and a host of artiÂ“cial Â”avors, as Today cites. Bottom line: You can get way more vitamins and Â“ber if you stick with real fruit. Maybe mix up a fruit salad for the kiddos with fresh blueberries, apple chunks and banana? ItÂs not as convenient, certainly, but it is actually food. VEGAN COOKIES Just because it has vegan in the name does not mean itÂs actually good for you. Vegan cookies are a prime example because many are chock full of reÂ“ned sugar and reÂ“ned Â”our, and they are totally lacking in Â“ber and other nutrients. Portion control is the key. One brand of vegan cookie actually has the nerve to claim that a serving is one half of a cookie. That means that one 4.25-ounce vegan cookies is actually two servings. If you gobble down that whole cookie, as Time notes, you will have sucked down 480 calories, 78 grams of carb, including 57 grams as sugar, with just 2 grams of Â“ber. Bottom line: If you really want healthy vegan cookies, you might need to bake up a batch at home. Throw in some whole foods, such as almond butter, rolled oats and chia seeds and jazz it up with a little bit of cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla. TRAIL MIX Trail mix varies widely depending on who makes it, as Time puts it. Many brands contain dried fruit thatÂs been drenched with sugar and then treated with artiÂ“cial preservatives. Then they throw in candy-coated milk chocolate orbs and such. This style of trail mix packs a hefty 200 calories into a golf-ball size serving with, little nutritional substance. Bottom line: If you crave healthy trail mix, you might have to DIY. Start with a base of nuts (think almonds, walnuts, pecans or pistachios) and seeds (pumpkin or sunÂ”ower) and then give it some zing with unsweetened chunks of dried fruit (go with chopped dried Â“gs, plums or dried cherries.) Chocolate lovers may want to toss in a little dark chocolate into the mix.4 health foods that are actually bad for youTHE MERCURY NEWS MARK DUFRENE/ BAY AREA NEWS GROUP/ TNSHit the trails with a batch of homemade trail mix and granola bars.

Monday, April 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9 www.highlandsnewssun.com Night owls might face more health issues and earlyBad news, night owls. Evening types have a 10 percent higher risk of dying than those up and at Âem in the morning, according to a new study from Northwestern Medicine and the United KingdomÂs University of Surrey. ÂThis is the Â“rst study, to our knowledge, that was able to look at mortality risk,ÂŽ said Kristen Knutson, an associate professor of neurology and sleep researcher at Northwestern. Night owls have a harder time switching to daylight saving time and are more likely to suffer from diabetes and psychological and neurological disorders, she said. Researchers surveyed 433,268 participants, ages 38 to 73, in the U.K., asking whether they considered themselves a ÂdeÂ“nite morning type,ÂŽ Âmoderate morning type,ÂŽ Âmoderate evening typeÂŽ or ÂdeÂ“nite evening type.ÂŽ Then researchers tracked deaths within the sample. The study, published April 12 in the Chronobiology International journal, found that the 50,000 people who identiÂ“ed as deÂ“nite night owls were more likely to die in the 6 1/2 years researchers followed them. ÂItÂs really important to get the message out to the night owls that there might be health consequences, and they should make an effort to be vigilant,ÂŽ Knutson said. But she said the problem isnÂt necessarily what the study calls Âincreased eveningness,ÂŽ but living in a society with schedules that donÂt welcome this. For example, being forced to get up earlier than your body clock prefers, Âand then going back to night owl times on your days off or weekend,ÂŽ she said. ÂThis jumping around the clock and the mismatch chronically is what really could lead to health problems.ÂŽ She suggests limiting evening activities and going to bed earlier, gradually. ÂAnd I emphasize gradually because you canÂt suddenly go to bed three hours earlier,ÂŽ she said. She noted results are based on a single survey question, so researchers do not know exactly when participants went to sleep or how often sleep schedules were jumping around. She and co-author Malcolm von Schantz, a University of Surrey professor who also researches sleep and circadian rhythms, note the increased likelihood of death could be the result of many factors, including behaviors that can potentially accompany late nights Â„ eating at irregular times, not exercising or sleeping enough, or using drugs and alcohol. ÂIt could include just having a less healthy lifestyle because theyÂre up at night,ÂŽ Knutson said. She said future research might include testing how well it works to try to get night owls to become larks, those who go to bed early and rise with the sun.THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE (TNS)SEBRING Â„ Sunny side up with a side of education is on tap at the next Eggs and Education health Talk Breakfast at Bob Evans from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. on April 27.

Or perhaps the fact that IÂm staring out the window as a beautiful spring storm rages through our area. At any rate, my mind is jumping to several Â“ndings that relate our diet to the development (or protection from) cancer: ItÂs been estimated that we could prevent more than half of all cancers if we would modify our habits, especially those related to smoking (donÂt do it) and diet. And one of every three cases of cancer can be traced to what we eat (or donÂt eat). Still, the evidence of what and how we should eat to prevent cancer is at best inconsistent, according to a review on this topic in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Although researchers are hard pressed to Â“nd dietary components that directly cause cancer, certain components in our diet are linked to an increased risk. For example, a high intake of added sugar and soft drinks is signiÂ“cantly associated with an increased risk for pancreatic cancer. Saturated fat from animal sources like red meat and dairy foods is also a risk factor for this type of cancer in some individuals. And higher intakes of Â“sh (not fried, please) are associated with a lower the risk for pancreatic cancer. Some beneÂ“cial microbes in our gut Â„ what some people call good bacteria or probiotics Â„ may help our bodies Â“ght off the development of colon cancer, according to researcher and registered dietitian Johanna Lampe of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. We can keep these good bugs working by feeding them healthful types of carbohydrates found in dried beans and lentils (IÂve got split pea soup simmering in my Crock pot now), onions, garlic and artichokes. In addition, foods like oats, barley, mushrooms, apples, pears, raisins, peaches and plums contain fermentable Â“bers, resistant starches and other types of Â“bers that are apparently considered delicacies by our good gut microbes. When good bacteria (probiotics) feed on these prebiotics, they produce substances that nourish the lining of the colon and may also help shut down the road that can lead to cancer. HereÂs some disappointing news. Although modest amounts of alcohol may help protect against heart disease, the American Institute for Cancer Research (www. aicr.org) recommends we donÂt drink alcohol at all for cancer prevention. ThatÂs because even small amounts can increase our risk for some types of cancer such as breast cancer.

Monday, April 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B11 www.highlandsnewssun.com medical attention is essential in such instances, as babies exhibiting such symptoms may not be getting enough oxygen in their blood. Coughing Some coughing is normal among newborns, who may cough when they drink too fast (as babies adjust to feeding, these coughs should vanish). But persistent coughs or gagging during feedings may indicate problems with the lungs or digestive tract. Jaundice A yellowish tinge to the skin known as jaundice is not uncommon among healthy newborns. The result of a buildup of bilirubin in the childÂs blood, jaundice often occurs when the babyÂs immature liver is not yet efÂ“ciently removing bilirubin from the bloodstream. Mild jaundice is harmless, but pediatricians may still want to check babiesÂ bilirubin levels because very high levels that are not detected or treated can cause damage to the brain or nervous system. The AAP notes that jaundice is more common in newborns who are breastfeeding, particularly those who are not nursing well. Nursing between eight and 12 times per day can keep bilirubin levels low. Jaundice Â“rst appears on the face followed by the chest and abdomen. Healthy babies discharged from the hospital before they are 72 hours old should be seen by a pediatrician within two days of being discharged so their bilirubin levels can be checked. More information about jaundice is available at www.aap. org. Respiratory distress Babies may need a few hours after birth to develop normal patterns of breathing. But those who need more time may be suffering from respiratory distress. Blockage of the nasal passages, which can be remedied with saline nasal drops and a bulb syringe that hospitals may provide to new parents, may be to blame. However, pediatricians should be notiÂ“ed immediately if babies exhibit fast breathing (more than 60 breaths in a minute), retractions (sucking in the muscles between the ribs with each breath), Â”aring of the nose, grunting while breathing, or persistent blue skin coloring. Newborns are susceptible to various conditions in their Â“rst hours and days of life. Parents who suspect anything out of the ordinary should contact their babiesÂ pediatricians immediately. BABIESFROM PAGE 1Newborns begin receiving vaccinations immediately after theyÂre born, and vaccination schedules continue for years afterward. One inoculation parents have heard of but may not necessarily understand is the DTaP vaccine. DTaP refers to diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, a collection of serious diseases that are caused by bacteria. Diphtheria: Diphtheria causes a thick covering to develop in the back of the throat and can lead to breathing problems, heart failure, paralysis, and even death. Tetanus: Sometimes referred to as Âlockjaw,ÂŽ tetanus causes muscles to tighten, typically all over the body, and is very painful. The AAP notes that tetanus can lead to death in up to two out of 10 cases. Pertussis: Pediatricians may refer to pertussis as Âwhooping cough,ÂŽ which can produce weeks-long coughing spells that make it difÂ“cult for infants to eat, drink or breathe. Pertussis can lead to other conditions, including pneumonia and seizures, and also may cause brain damage or death. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, tetanus enters the body through cuts or wounds, while diphtheria and pertussis are spread from person to person. A safer version of the DTP vaccine, DTaP protects most children from diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis throughout childhood and is distributed in Â“ve doses at various intervals in a childÂs life. Some children, including those who are moderately or severely ill, should wait until they are fully recovered before receiving the DTaP vaccine. In addition, children who suffer life-threatening allergic reactions after a dose of DTaP or those who develop brain or nervous system disease within a week of receiving a DTaP dose should not receive another dose. When children receive a dose of the DTaP vaccine, parents should pay close attention to how their kids react to the dose. The AAP advises parents speak with their childrenÂs pediatricians if children have a seizure or collapse after a dose of DTaP, cry nonstop for three hours or more after a dose or develop a fever over 105 F after receiving a dose of the vaccine. Children typically receive their Â“rst dose of the DTaP vaccine at two months of age, so parents should bring up any questions or concerns they have with their childrenÂs pediatricians before their kids reach that age. Explaining the DTaP vaccineMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS says these and other health experts, limit your intake to no more than 2 drinks a day for men and 1 drink a day for women. (One drink is equal to 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of distilled alcohol.) We donÂt have all the answers about how some cancers happen, but experts say we can substantially lower our risk for developing or dying from cancer if we consistently follow these four recommendations: maintain a healthy body weight, stay physically active, consume a diet that includes a high amount of plant-based foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, legumes) and limit our intake of alcohol.

B12 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, April 23, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com grew and noticed that some of them looked and grew better than others. That really sparked my interest in nutrition.ÂŽ She also grew up with gardening. ÂMy mother had a large garden,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe canned and froze everything from the garden. That fed the family for an entire year. We made butter and baked bread every Saturday. Everything was homemade.ÂŽ When Pisarski was considering her future after high school, her mother encouraged her to become a nurse. ÂShe always wanted to be one,ÂŽ Pisarski said. ÂBut I wanted to be a veterinarian. When I was looking at veterinary schools and the cost and time involved, my dad said, ÂNo, Â“nd something different.ÂÂŽ After graduating from high school, Pisarski got married and had children. ÂThe Â“rst year that I was married, my husband became very ill and was close to death,ÂŽ she said. ÂHe was in the hospital for Â“ve weeks and in the intensive care unit (ICU) for three weeks. When I was in the ICU with him, I watched the nurses work and decided, ÂThis is what I want to do.ÂÂŽ She waited until her children were in school before she enrolled in a nursing program. Shortly after graduating, she was hired as a nurse in the ICU of a local hospital. Over the next 20 years, she became certiÂ“ed to teach vocational technical education and biology, and earned her masterÂs degree. In that time, Pisarski and her husband had a farm while raising their children. She worked as a part-time school nurse, part-time at a hospital, and held various other part-time jobs. ÂI cleaned house or made pies for a restaurant,ÂŽ she said. A parttime job at the nearby Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), eventually, became full-time and lasted 15 years. BOCES is a public organization that provides shared educational services and programs, such as career and technical education, to school districts. At the local BOCES, she taught vocational education in health occupations, nurse assisting, and practical nursing programs. In 2005, Pisarski became a nurse practitioner to embrace her passion for prevention. ÂI just thought that was a good level in nursing to initiate prevention and do a lot of teaching,ÂŽ she said. ÂI feel like many diseases can be prevented and that our diet makes a big difference. So that brings me back to nutrition. We can prevent diabetes, we can prevent heart disease. There are a lot of diseases that we can prevent or we can slow them down or have them start later. If you can get 10 good years of health before disease sets in, thatÂs great.ÂŽ According to the Florida Association of Nurse Practitioners, nurse practitioners in Florida work under the supervision of a physician, hold masterÂs or doctoral degrees, Âmanage and provide primary and acute care, diagnose illness, prescribe tests and medications, and promote health and wellness.ÂŽ ÂAs a nurse practitioner, assessment skills have to be very acute,ÂŽ Pisarski said. ÂI have that sixth sense. I got that from working with animals when I was younger. You have to be able to put pieces together and make a diagnosis on a patient. You have to be knowledgeable about the medications that are going to take care of a concern.ÂŽ Pisarski has been a professor of nursing at SFSC since 2009. When teaching students, she considers nutrition important in patient care. ÂTheyÂre going to be taking care of patients. Teaching pharmacology and nutrition go hand in hand because some foods interact with medications. For example, patients need to be aware that drinking milk when theyÂre taking certain medications will bind with the medication and they wonÂt get the full beneÂ“t of the medication. In addition, many herbals are blood thinning, so if a person is on blood thinners, theyÂre going to get over-treated,ÂŽ she said. ÂSome examples of blood thinning herbals are ginger, garlic, ginseng, glucosamine, to name a few.ÂŽ ÂI teach students the importance of an egg,ÂŽ she said. ÂChickens are fed calcium, and thatÂs what makes that shell hard. When you eat a hard-boiled egg, the calcium from the shell leaches into the egg. So youÂre going to get a little more calcium than if you were just to eat a cracked egg.ÂŽ Pisarski tells students that the egg is the perfect protein and explains by telling the story about a prisoner of war (POW) who was in prison for a year. ÂAll the POW was given to eat was one hard-boiled egg and water every day,ÂŽ she said. ÂWhen he was released and came back to the United States, it was anticipated that heÂd be malnourished, but he wasnÂt. He was expected to have vitamin and mineral deÂ“ciencies, but there werenÂt any.ÂŽ In addition to teaching at SFSC, Pisarski serves as chairwoman on the board of the SamaritanÂs Touch Care Center in Sebring and does volunteer community service as a nurse practitioner at the center. ÂSamaritanÂs Touch is a clinic for the indigent,ÂŽ she said. ÂOftentimes, they donÂt have health insurance because they donÂt have jobs or they have low-paying jobs, and theyÂre looking for alternatives. Many of the clients donÂt want to take medications and want to know, ÂWhat do I have at home that I can use?Â There are things at home that can be used right out of your kitchen cupboard for illnesses.ÂŽNURSINGFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTOMort, Chester and Elek, three tortoises that belong to SFSC nursing professor Dawn Pisarski.

The News Wire Monday, April 23, 2018 STATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHER With dogs in tow, Maine community remembers Barbara BushSee page 8 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Â„ A nearly naked gunman wearing only a green jacket and brandishing an assault riÂ”e stormed a WafÂ”e House restaurant in Nashville early Sunday, shooting four people to death before a customer rushed him and wrestled the weapon away. Authorities were searching for the 29-yearold suspect, Travis Reinking, who they said drove to the busy restaurant and killed two people in the parking lot before entering and continuing to Â“re. When his AR-15 riÂ”e either jammed or the clip was empty, the customer disarmed him in a scufÂ”e. Four people were also wounded before the gunman Â”ed, shedding his jacket. Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson said there was no clear motive, though Reinking may have Âmental issues.ÂŽ He may still be armed, Anderson told a mid-afternoon news conference, because he was known to have owned a handgun that authorities have not recovered. The AR-15 used in the shooting and the handgun were among four Â“rearms that authorities took from Reinking after U.S. Secret Service agents arrested him last July for being in a restricted area near the White House, ofÂ“cials said. Special Agent Todd Hudson said Reinking was detained after refusing to leave the restricted area, later explaining he wanted to meet President Donald Trump. State police in Illinois, where Reinking lived until last fall, revoked his state Â“rearms card at the request of the FBI and the four guns were taken from him, authorities said. Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron said the guns were returned to his father, who told authorities Sunday he had given the weapons to his son. Authorities hailed the customer who intervened to stop a further bloodbath, 29-year-old James Shaw, Jr., as a hero 4 dead in Waffle House shooting in Tennessee; suspect soughtBy SHEILA BURKEASSOCIATED PRESSNASHVILLE, Tenn. Â„ The man who wrestled the gun away from a WafÂ”e House shooting suspect in Tennessee said Sunday if he were going to die, the gunman would Âhave to work to kill me.ÂŽ Police are calling James Shaw Jr. a hero for saving lives in the busy restaurant, but the 29-year-old Nashville resident said he only made a split-second decision to do all he could to challenge the shooter and save himself from being killed. Shaw said at a news conference Sunday he had spent an evening out at a nightclub and entered the restaurant minutes ahead of the gunmanÂs arrival. He said he and another friend were seated at a high counter when he heard gunshots. Shaw said he had just seen restaurant workers stacking up freshly washed plates and thought at Â“rst that plates had crashed down. Then, he said, restaurant workers scattered and he turned and saw a body near the front door as the gunman burst in. It was then he realized he had heard gunshots. ÂI looked back and I saw a person lying on the ground right at the entrance Man fought gunman: He Âwas going to have to work to kill meÂBy SHEILA BURKEASSOCIATED PRESSKABUL, Afghanistan Â„ An Islamic State suicide bomber carried out an attack at a voter registration center in the capital Kabul on Sunday, killing 57 people and wounding more than 100 others, said ofÂ“cials from the Afghan interior and public health ministries. Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majro said that among 57 who were killed in the attack, 22 were women and eight are children. Majro added that 119 people were wounded in SundayÂs attack, among them 17 children and 52 women. ÂThe tolls could still rise,ÂŽ he added. Gen. Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, said the suicide bomber targeted civilians who were registering for national identiÂ“cation cards. The large explosion echoed across the city, shattering windows miles away from the attack site and damaging several nearby vehicles. Police blocked all roads to the blast site, with only ambulances allowed in. Local TV stations broadcast live footage of hundreds of distraught locals gathered at nearby hospitals seeking word about loved ones. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency, saying it had targeted Shiite Âapostates.ÂŽ The attack comes almost a month after another deadly attack by IS in which a suicide bomber carried out an attack near a Shiite shrine in Kabul that targeted attendees celebrating the Persian new year. That attack killed 31 people and wounded 65 others.

Two Palestinian refugees, a father and a son, were killed during the Â“ghting at the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, according to the United NationÂs Palestinian refugee agency, which added that thousands of homes have been destroyed in four days of Â“ghting. Hundreds of IS militants hold parts of the Yarmouk camp and nearby area of Hajar al-Aswad in southern Damascus. They agreed to give up their last pocket there on Friday but have yet to begin surrendering to government forces and relocating to IS-held areas elsewhere in the country. State-run al-Ikhbariya TV showed thick gray smoke billowing from the Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood on Sunday, and government warplanes streaking overhead amid heavy bombardment of the area. Residents of Damascus reported hearing loud booms throughout the night and Sunday morning. UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunnes said that since the start of Â“ghting four days ago, most of the six thousand civilians in Yarmouk camp have been forcibly displaced to the neighboring area of Yalda. ÂMost Â”ed their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Their needs are dire. There are reports that people are begging for medicine. Some have spent their Â“rst nights in the street,ÂŽ he said in a statement. Gunnes said added that the campÂs last functioning hospital, Palestine Hospital, is now completely unable to operate and called on all sides to allow for the safe evacuation of civilians wishing to leave the area. President Bashar Assad has escalated his military campaign to retake all remaining enclaves in the capital and surrounding areas. The IS-held areas in southern Damascus are the last holdouts, after rebels evacuated the eastern Ghouta suburbs following a Â“erce government offensive and an alleged poison gas attack in the town of Douma. Chemical weapons inspectors collected samples from Douma on Saturday, two weeks after the suspected gas attack there prompted retaliatory strikes by Western powers on the Syrian governmentÂs chemical facilities. The site visit, conÂ“rmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, will 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. The OPCW mission is not mandated to apportion blame for the attack. Douma was the Â“nal target of the governmentÂs sweeping campaign to seize back control of eastern Ghouta from rebels after seven years of revolt. Militants gave up the town days after the alleged attack. The Syrian government and its ally Russia denied responsibility for the suspected chemical attack. Meanwhile, rebels have begun evacuating three towns in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside. Al-Ikhbariya TV said that 35 buses left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud, and al-Nasriya on Saturday carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition-held territory in northern Syria. The station said the evacuations would continue for three days. On Sunday, SwedenÂs Ambassador to the United Nations said that he and other Security Council envoys had agreed to work on a Âmeaningful mechanismÂŽ to work out who was behind the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria. Olof Skoog spoke in southern Sweden after an annual, informal working meeting with the U.N. Security Council ambassadors. The meeting comes just a week after the U.S., France and Britain bombed suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities, after accusing AssadÂs government of being behind the attack in Douma.Syrian military pummels IS-held districts in DamascusBy ZEINA KARAMASSOCIATED PRESS SANA VIA APIn this photo released by the Syrian ocial news agency SANA, smoke rises after Syrian government airstrikes and shelling hit in Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood held by Islamic State militants, in southern Damascus, Syria, Sunday.

Pakistan: Gunmen kill 2 Shiites in Quetta 4 Britons on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia killed in bus crashRussian lawyer questions why Mueller hasnÂt contacted herQUETTA, Pakistan (AP) Â„ Gunmen killed two Shiites and wounded a third in Quetta on Sunday, the latest in a recent series of attacks on the religious minority, police said. Police chief Abdur Razzaq Cheema said both deceased men were local ofÂ“cials in Shiite community organizations; Ali Raza was a Baluchistan Shiite Conference ofÂ“cial while Syed Zaman worked for the Hazara Welfare Foundation. Cheema said the attackers Â”ed the scene on motorcycles after SundayÂs shooting and that a search is underway. No arrests have been made. It was the Â“fth attack in recent months targeting Shiites in Quetta. Last week, a Shiite shopkeeper was killed in a drive-by shooting. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency. LONDON (AP) Â„ A British travel company says four Britons on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia have been killed in a bus crash. Hashim Travel said the four were among 18 people on a bus traveling from Mecca to Medina on Saturday. The travel company says the bus collided with a gasoline tanker truck. It says other people on the bus were treated for injuries. The Foreign OfÂ“ce called the collision near the town of Al Khalas in west Saudi Arabia a Âserious road trafÂ“c accident.ÂŽ It said in a statement it is working to assist families of the people killed and injured. It didnÂt give further details. Hashim Travel says it has organized pilgrimage tours for more than 15 years. MOSCOW (AP) Â„ A Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during his fatherÂs 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency says special counsel Robert Mueller hasnÂt contacted her and she thinks he isnÂt interested in Â“nding the truth. Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Donald Trump Jr., the presidentÂs son-inlaw, Jared Kushner, and thencampaign chairman Paul Manafort in June 2016 after Trump Jr. was told she could provide potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton. The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee questioned her in Berlin last month. Veselnitskaya told The Associated Press during an interview in Moscow on Sunday that she hasnÂt been approached by Mueller, the former FBI director leading the U.S. investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. She says thatÂs why she thinks he Âis not working to discover the truth.ÂŽ | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDSunni extremists view Shiites as heretics and apostates. VESELNITSKAYA
The Sun /Monday, April 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSDOVER, N.Y. Â„ What started out as a joyful reunion of a young woman with her birth parents soon turned sour, then shocking, and Â“nally deadly. A young woman named Katie married her birth father, had a baby with him and, after she decided to leave him, lost her life to him along with that of their child and her adoptive father. All three were laid to rest this weekend in upstate New York. Katie, whose last name was Fusco at the time, had no idea before she moved in with Steven Pladl and his wife in August 2016 that he had an explosive temper, a history of abusive behavior and owned at least four guns.A very normal lifeIn 1995, Steven Pladl was 20 when he met a 15-year-old girl named Alyssa on the internet. She soon became pregnant and gave birth to a girl they named Denise. Alyssa Pladl told The Associated Press in an interview last week that they put the girl up for adoption when she was 8 months old. They were young and poor, she said, but she also believed Steven Pladl physically abused the baby. In her interview, she did not elaborate. ÂIt was so hard to give her up,ÂŽ Alyssa said, Âbut I had to because I wanted her to live and be happy.ÂŽ For most of what was to be her short life, she was. Tony Fusco and his wife, Kelly, adopted the girl they renamed Katie and raised her with their biological daughter in Dover, about 80 miles north of New York City. ÂThey had a very, very normal life,ÂŽ said Cary Gould, Kelly FuscoÂs brother. ÂMy nickname for Katie was Pac-Man. She was always eating. She loved animals. She was a vegetarian.ÂŽ After turning 18 in January 2016, Katie, who Gould said had been told she was adopted, found her birth parents and messaged them. The Pladls were happy to reunite with her. Instead of going to college in August 2016, Katie moved in with the Pladls in Henrico County, Virginia, that month. Tony and Kelly Fusco were apprehensive, Gould said, but they thought Katie was old enough to make her own decisions and supported her. All was not well in the Pladl home. Steven and Alyssa had already decided to separate and were sleeping in separate rooms. Alyssa Pladl said she had suffered emotional and verbal abuse by her husband for years. ÂI was always on eggshells, whatever his mood was Âƒ a lot of yelling, a lot of things smashed in the house, in front of our kids,ÂŽ she said. Alyssa Pladl told Katie privately that Steven Pladl had abused her as a baby and that a major reason for the adoption was her own safety. Katie, according to Alyssa, didnÂt appear to be concerned.ÂWeÂre in loveÂSteven PladlÂs behavior changed after he met Katie, Alyssa Pladl said. He began wearing skinny jeans and form-Â“tting shirts. He shaved his beard and let his hair grow long. About six weeks after Katie moved in, Steven Pladl one night slept on the Â”oor in her room. It immediately concerned Alyssa. After he did it again the next night, she confronted him. He said it was none of her business and stormed out of the house with Katie. Alyssa Pladl Â“nally moved out in November 2016, and she shared custody of the two children with Steven Pladl. In May 2017, she learned from her 11-year-old daughterÂs journal of the incestuous relationship and KatieÂs pregnancy. Her daughter wrote that she and her sister were told by Steven Pladl to refer to Katie as their stepmother. ÂI started to become hysterical, and I called him,ÂŽ she said. ÂI said, ÂIs Katie pregnant with your baby?Â He just said, ÂI thought you knew. WeÂre in love.Â ÂI started screaming,ÂŽ she said. ÂI was just cursing him out: ÂHow could you? YouÂre sick. SheÂs a child.ÂÂŽ Then she called the police.Incest chargesOn July 20, 2017, two months after his divorce from Alyssa was Â“nalized and amid the police investigation, Steven Pladl married Katie in Parkton, Maryland. They lied on their application, saying they were unrelated, according to records. KatieÂs adoptive parents posed for a photo on the wedding day along with Steven, Katie and StevenÂs mother. Tony and Kelly Fusco thought there was nothing they could do and had decided it was best to support Katie, Gould said. Katie gave birth to Bennett on Sept. 1. She and Steven moved to a house in North Carolina, east of Raleigh, but wedded bliss did not last long. They were arrested on incest charges in January. A judge ordered them to not contact each other, and Steven PladlÂs mother has custody. Steven PladlÂs lawyer, Rick Friedman II, said there was never an allegation that Steven Pladl pressured Katie into a relationship. ÂThis case is an 18-year-old girl who shows up at the doorstep of a 40-year-old man whoÂs going through difÂ“cult times with his wife,ÂŽ Friedman said. ÂThey have a bond because theyÂre biologically related, but they never knew each other before ÂƒÂŽ After the arrests, Katie moved back with Tony and Kelly Fusco, who declined to comment for this article. Every Tuesday and Thursday, she would travel to her adoptive grandmotherÂs home in Waterbury, Connecticut, Gould said. On April 12, a Thursday, Katie and Tony Fusco left the Dover home for Waterbury. In a minivan nearby, Steven Pladl watched them leave, surveillance video shows. Minutes later in nearby New Milford, witnesses reported someone opening Â“re. Katie and Tony Fusco, 56, were fatally shot. Steven Pladl was later found dead of a self-inÂ”icted gunshot back in Dover. Shortly after the New Milford shooting, Steven PladlÂs mother called 911 to report her son had told her he killed the baby, Katie and her adoptive father. ÂI canÂt even believe this is happening,ÂŽ StevenÂs mother told authorities, according to a 911 call transcript from which her name was redacted. Police found the baby dead and alone in Katie and StevenÂs home. Alyssa Pladl struggles to make sense of it all. ÂIÂm grieving. IÂm sad. IÂm upset,ÂŽ she said. ÂBut I also want to have something good come out of this. If itÂs to get truth out there, to open peopleÂs eyes to incest.ÂŽA reunion with birth parents leads to incest, murderBy DAVE COLLINS and DENISE LAVOIEASSOCIATED PRESS ALYSSA PLADL VIA APThis June 2016 image provided by Alyssa Pladl, shows Katie Pladl and her father Steven Pladl. Woman who gave teen vodka charged in his death Man went on sex trips; gets 330 years for child pornCHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) Â„ Authorities say an Ohio woman who provided alcohol to a 17-year-old boy whose body was found near her home has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. The Chillicothe Gazette reports that 33-year-old Sandy France, of Chillicothe, was arrested Friday after being indicted by a Ross County grand jury. An autopsy showed that Jason Bartley Jr. died of acute alcohol intoxication and abuse of benzodiazepines, a drug typically prescribed to treat anxiety and insomnia last year. He was found by a homeless coordinator Oct. 18. A Ross County prosecutor says France gave the teen a bottle of vodka that he drank before his death. He says France was the mother of one of BartleyÂs friends. ItÂs unclear whether France has an attorney. FORT MYERS (AP) Â„ A Florida man has been sentenced to 330 years in prison on child pornography charges after authorities say he took sex tourism trips to the Philippines and made and posted videos of sexual encounters he had with young children. Authorities say David LynchÂs victims were as young as 6 years old and that he posted videos online dating back to 2005. The Venice man was arrested in 2016 attempting to board a Â”ight to the Philippines. Prosecutors say at least one of the trips was arranged by the mother of one of the young victims. They say Lynch also has two young children living in the Philippines. Lynch was convicted late last year and sentenced this week. The Fort Myers News-Press reports the judge ordered Lynch to forfeit his bayfront home. | NEWS BRIEFS adno=50533071I CAN MAKE ANYONE LOSE WEIGHTThat may sound like a bold statement, but thatÂs how conÂ“dent I am in our weight loss program.

On this date In 1616 (Old Style calendar), English poet and dramatist William Shakespeare died in Stratford-upon-Avon on what has traditionally been regarded as the 52nd anniversary of his birth in 1564. In 1789 President-elect George Washington and his wife, Martha, moved into the first executive mansion, the Franklin House, in New York. In 1943 U.S. Navy Lt. John F. Kennedy assumed command of PT-109, a motor torpedo boat, in the Solomon Islands during World War II. In 1969 Sirhan Sirhan was sentenced to death for assassinating New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. (The sentence was later reduced to life imprisonment.) In 1971 hundreds of Vietnam War veterans opposed to the conflict protested by tossing their medals and ribbons over a wire fence in front of the U.S. Capitol. In 1998 James Earl Ray, who confessed to assassinating the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and then insisted heÂd been framed, died at a Nashville hospital at age 70. In 2005 the recently created video-sharing website YouTube uploaded its first clip, ÂMe at the Zoo,ÂŽ which showed YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim standing in front of an elephant enclosure at the San Diego Zoo.

(AP) Â„ A baby raccoon halted Northern California traffic after he crawled inside the engine compartment of an SUV stopped at a traffic signal. The East Bay Times reports that police Lt. Fred Dauer thought he had come across a traffic accident in Emeryville on Friday when he saw cars parked and people standing around using their cellphones. But he quickly learned they had stopped because the driver of an SUV believed a raccoon he saw in the street had climbed inside his vehicle. Dauer opened the hood and used a pole to free the 5to 6-week-old raccoon, whom an animal officer named ÂThrottle.ÂŽ The raccoon was taken to a shelter and is being transferred to a San Francisco wildlife rescue center.ODD NEWS Police rescue baby raccoon trapped under SUV hoodFROM PAGE ONEGhani as saying such Âterrorist attacksÂŽ wonÂt prevent people from participating in upcoming parliamentary elections. Afghanistan will hold parliamentary elections in October and voter registration started a week ago. Last week, three police ofÂ“cers guarding voter registration centers in two Afghan provinces were killed by militants, according to authorities. Afghan security forces have struggled to prevent attacks by the local Islamic State afÂ“liate as well as the more Â“rmly established Taliban since the U.S. and NATO concluded their combat mission at the end of 2014. Both groups regularly carry out attacks, with the Taliban usually targeting the government and security forces and IS targeting the countryÂs Shiite minority. Both groups want to establish a strict form of Islamic rule in Afghanistan and are opposed to democratic elections. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, at least Â“ve people were killed when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb in the northern Baghlan province. Zabihullah Shuja, spokesman for the provincial police chief, said four other people were wounded in SundayÂs blast in Puli Khomri, the provinceÂs capital. The Taliban routinely target security forces and government ofÂ“cials with roadside bombs, which often end up killing civilians. In the northern Balkh province, a district police chief died of his wounds after being shot Saturday during an exchange of gunÂ“re with insurgents, according to Sher Jan Durrani, spokesman for the provincial police chief. He said around a dozen insurgents were also killed in the battle, which is still underway. Durrani identiÂ“ed the slain commander as Halim Khanjar, police chief for the Char Bolak district. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the killing.BOMBERFROM PAGE 1 A relative of a victim cries outside a voter registration center which was attacked by a suicide bomber in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday. Gen. Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, said the suicide bomber targeted civilians who had gathered to receive national identication cards. Â„ though the father of a 4-year-old girl demurred and said he was just trying to survive. Shaw told reporters he Â“rst thought the gunshots Â“red around 3:25 a.m. were plates falling from a dishwashing station. He said when he realized what was happening, he took cover behind a door as shots shattered windows. The gun either jammed or needed a new clip, and that is when Shaw said he pounced. They cursed at each other as they scufÂ”ed, Shaw said, and he was able to grab the gun and toss it over a counter. The gunman then ran away into the dark of the workingand middle-class Antioch neighborhood of southeast Nashville. Authorities said he shed his jacket nearby and police found two AR-15 magazines loaded with bullets in the pockets. He was seen walking, naked, on a road, ofÂ“cials said, but later was seen in pants after apparently returning to his apartment. Another witness, Chuck Cordero, told The Tennessean newspaper he had stopped to get a cup of coffee and was outside the WafÂ”e House when the chaos unfolded. ÂHe did not say anything,ÂŽ Cordero said of the gunman, who he described as Âall business.ÂŽ Cordero said Shaw saved lives. ÂThere was plenty more people in that restaurant,ÂŽ he said. The dead were identiÂ“ed as 29-year-old restaurant worker Taurean C. Sanderlin, and 20-year-old restaurant patrons Joe R. Perez, 23-year-old Akilah Dasilva and 21-year-old Deebony Groves. A police statement said Sanderlin and Perez were killed outside the restaurant, Groves was fatally shot inside, and Dasilva was critically wounded inside and later died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Aaron, the police spokesman, said two of the wounded were being treated for gunshot wounds at the medical center, where spokeswoman Jennifer Wetzel said one was in critical condition and the other was in critical but stable condition. TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center spokeswoman Katie Radel in Nashville said two people were treated for minor injuries and released. Aaron said Reinking lived near the restaurant, and police used yellow crime scene tape to block public access to an apartment complex about a half-mile from the WafÂ”e House. Reinking is originally from Morton, Illinois. ÂThis is a very sad day for the WafÂ”e House family,ÂŽ the company said in a statement on Twitter. ÂWe ask for everyone to keep the victims and their families in their thoughts and prayers.ÂŽ Nashville Mayor David Briley described the shooting as Âa tragic dayÂŽ for the city. ÂMy heart goes out to the families & friends of every person who was killed or wounded,ÂŽ Briley said in an emailed statement. ÂI know all of their lives will be forever changed by this devastating crime.ÂŽ U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper, whose district includes Nashville, said in an emailed statement that the shooting shows the need for tighter restrictions on Âwidespread civilian access to military-grade assault weapons.ÂŽSHOOTINGFROM PAGE 1 A body is carried out of a Wae House in Nashville, Tenn., Sunday.

ÂHe shot through that door; IÂm pretty sure he grazed my arm. At that time I made up my mind ... that he was going to have to work to kill me. When the gun jammed or whatever happened, I hit him with the swivel door.ÂŽ Shaw said it was then that they began wrestling, ignoring his own pain as he grabbed the hot barrel of the gun: ÂHe was kind of cussing while we were wrestling around. When I Â“nally got the gun he was cussing like I was in the wrong ... it wasnÂt any kind of talking between us; I just knew I just had to get that away from him.ÂŽ Of the gun, he added: ÂI grabbed it from him and threw it over the countertop and I just took him with me out the entrance.ÂŽ Shaw said after getting the man out of the WafÂ”e House, he then ran one way and saw the suspect jogging or trotting another way. ShawÂs right hand was bandaged at the news conference from the struggle. He also said he had an apparent bullet graze on one elbow and fell and hit his knee as he escaped and skinned up some Â“ngers. He said he didnÂt see himself as a hero, adding heÂs certain he wouldnÂt be alive if he hadnÂt succeeded in his mission. ÂI didnÂt really Â“ght that man to save everyone else. That may not be a popular thing,ÂŽ Shaw said. ÂI took the gun so I could get myself outÂŽ of the situation. Tears welled in his eyes at the news conference as law enforcement agents called him a hero. He said he was glad he ended up saving other lives. WafÂ”e House CEO Walter Ehmer also thanked Shaw at the news conference for his bravery. ÂYou donÂt get to meet too many heroes in life,ÂŽ Ehmer said before addressing Shaw, who dabbed at his eyes. ÂWe are forever in your debt.ÂŽFOUGHTFROM PAGE 1WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Â„ President Donald Trump on Sunday claimed North Korea has agreed to ÂdenuclearizationÂŽ before his potential meeting with Kim Jong Un. But thatÂs not the case. North Korea said Friday it would suspend nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile launches ahead of summits with the U.S. and South Korea. Kim also said a nuclear test site would be closed and ÂdismantledÂŽ now that the country has learned how to make nuclear weapons and mount warheads on ballistic rockets. But the North has stopped short of saying it has any intention of abandoning its nuclear arsenal, with Kim making clear that nukes remain a Âtreasured sword.ÂŽ Trump nonetheless tweeted Sunday that the North has Âagreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!ÂŽ Being committed to the concept of denuclearization, however, is not the same as agreeing to it, as Trump claims. South Korea, which is set to meet with North Korea later this week, has said Kim has expressed genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons. But the North for decades has been pushing a concept of ÂdenuclearizationÂŽ that bears no resemblance to the American deÂ“nition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its troops from the Korean Peninsula and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan. South KoreaÂs president has said Kim isnÂt asking for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the Korean Peninsula as a condition for abandoning his nuclear weapons. If true, that would seem to remove a major sticking point to a potential disarmament deal. But that still doesnÂt address a North Korean arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and developmental ICBMs developed during a decadeslong cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises. Trump agreed to meet with Kim after an invitation was delivered by a South Korean delegation that had just returned from Pyongyang. ÂI told President Trump that in our meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said heÂs committed to denuclearization,ÂŽ South KoreaÂs national security adviser later told reporters on the White House driveway. ÂKim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.ÂŽ A place and date have yet to be set, but TrumpÂs pick to be the next secretary of state, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, traveled to North Korea on Easter weekend to lay the groundwork for the meeting. Trump has called the talks a success, but itÂs unclear exactly what was agreed to, if anything, as a condition for the leader-to-leader talks. ÂLook, this is a great public relations effort by Kim Jong-un. And I think people recognize that,ÂŽ Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, said Sunday on CNNÂs ÂState of the Union.ÂŽ But asked whether be believed the North would denuclearize, Corker offered caution. ÂWell, I donÂt think he said anything about denuclearizing on the front end necessarily,ÂŽ he said. He added on ABCÂs ÂThis WeekÂŽ that itÂs unrealistic to think that ÂsomebodyÂs going to go in and charmÂŽ Kim out of keeping his nuclear weapons. ÂIs it realistic that heÂs just willy-nilly going to do that? Absolutely not,ÂŽ Corker said. ÂBut, you know, progress can be made, freezing the program, who knows what heÂs Â„ what his ambitions are as it relates to South Korea.ÂŽ Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, was equally as skeptical on CBSÂ ÂFace the Nation,ÂŽ arguing that North KoreaÂs recent statements are easily reversible and that no announcement has been made about shortor medium-range ballistic missiles that threaten South Korea and Japan. ÂWell, I think this announcement on Friday is better than continued testing, but itÂs not much better than that,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut I do think they show that the president has put Kim Jong Un on the wrong foot for the Â“rst time.ÂŽ Asked what denuclearization means to both sides, White House Legislative Director Marc Short said on NBCÂs ÂMeet the PressÂŽ that there needs to be a sit-down meeting to make sure everyoneÂs on the same page. ÂBut I think from our perspective, it means full denuclearization,ÂŽ he said. ÂNo longer having nuclear weapons that can be used in warfare against any of our allies.ÂŽ Still, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, told CBS that if the president goes through with the meeting, itÂs Âvery importantÂŽ that it Âgoes well and that there is an ability to put together some terms of an agreement that might exist.ÂŽ ÂThe question,ÂŽ she said, Âis whether it lasts or not. And of course the reputation of the North Koreans has been that they donÂt necessarily keep their agreements.ÂŽTrump says North Korea agreed to denuclearize. It hasnÂt.By JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESS
The Sun /Monday, April 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger SaturdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: For two years, I have had symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Like many of my fellow suerers, I continually feel bad, but no test can conrm my diagnosis. Because of this and other factors, I am looking at "psychosomatic illness" as a cause. CFS would lend itself to such a diagnosis. Any information you could oer would be appreciated. Â„ R.S. ANSWER: The term "psychosomatic" simply means "mind and body." It is clear to me that there is no signicant disease of the body that does not aect the mind, at least to some extent. And there is no serious condition that aects the mind where the body does not suer in some way. From that perspective, all diseases are psychosomatic. However, the term is used in everyday language to describe a person with nothing wrong with the body, whose symptoms are due entirely to emotions. It's very frustrating, since it implies that a person's physical symptoms are due to some weakness in his or her character. This is certainly not the case with chronic fatigue syndrome. The recommendation now is to call it "systemic exertion intolerance disease," which is a better explanation of the condition. The Institute of Medicine proposed new criteria for diagnosing SEID (one place to read about this report is at https:// tinyurl.com/SEID-IOM). While there is not yet a blood test to conrm the diagnosis, researchers at Stanford recently reported a pattern of inammatory markers that may help conrm and quantify the severity of this condition. A full description of this complex illness is beyond the scope of this column. Although there is no cure, there are a variety of treatments available. I must caution against the over-aggressive use of exercise programs, which can worsen symptoms. DEAR DR. ROACH: I wear a tness tracker 24/7. Any health risks? Â„ C.P. ANSWER: There are several kinds of tness trackers, ranging from devices that measure activity (such as steps and stairs) to devices that also measure heart rate and precise location via GPS. They can be worn as a bracelet or watch, or carried in the pocket or elsewhere. None of this electronic activity is in any way harmful. I have seen only two kinds of health risks from trackers. The rst is a skin reaction to the device itself. This happens in people who are sensitive, and it's not uncommon. It may happen right away or as the bracelet wears. The second is that some people overdo it. These devices are designed to help motivate people to more activity, and that eect is variable: Some people have no eect; many people get a benet; and a few people overdo it. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column on lip burning and pain generated many suggestions from readers with similar symptoms. Advice included: repeated applications of zinc oxide cream or petrolatum (Vaseline); B-12 tablets (get your level tested rst, though); avoiding triggers, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (present in many toothpastes) and fruits like pineapple and melon. As always, I appreciate my readers who take the time to write in, and I am touched by the desire to help others with their experiences.DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, "Chris," and I were planning on moving in together. We went apartment hunting and created a realistic budget we could both maintain. He was the one who brought up the idea and also the one who pushed it. Chris is an only child. His parents love him so much I think they will do anything to keep him in their house for as long as they can. (He's 21.) I know I must respect his parents, but I also know Chris wants to be out on his own but is afraid of them. I want the best for him and for us. How should I handle this situation without harming the relationship between him and his parents, or me and his parents as well? Â„ Wanting It In Wisconsin DEAR WANTING IT: Because Chris is an adult, asking him when he DOES think the two of you can live together would be a fair question. However, if it's one he can't answer, you must realize that he isn't independent enough to cut the umbilical cord, and you should plan for your future accordingly. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I walk the mall most days, and our route usually takes us through a bookstore where we enjoy coee in the coee shop attached to it. Every time we go we see one particular couple sitting there reading the books and magazines but never bothering to buy anything. The place is not a library. These bookstores are striving to stay alive and make a prot. I'm torn about whether to approach the couple, the management, or let them continue abusing the generosity of the store by never making a purchase. Â„ Mall Patrol DEAR MALL PATROL: Do not take it upon yourselves to shame that couple, which could lead to an ugly argument. Your eorts would be better spent if you talk to the store manager about what you have observed and let that person handle it from there. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about veterans who are singled out by scammers. Â„ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Scammers are targeting American veterans with various schemes to take advantage of them. Veterans should be very wary of any phone calls that are unsolicited. That includes someone who asks you to pay a fee, create a trust or buy an annuity to be eligible for an assistance program. General information on veterans benets can be found online at: http:/www.benets. va.gov/pension/vetpen. asp. Remember, NEVER give out personal or nancial information over the phone to anyone."

Bush, spent years at their summer home in Kennebunkport. Barbara Bush died on Tuesday at home in Houston at the age of 92. She was laid to rest on Saturday at her husbandÂs presidential library in Texas. At the Maine memorial, some also donated childrenÂs books to be given to two local libraries and a childrenÂs hospital in her memory. ÂThatÂs our farewell to Barbara,ÂŽ said Diane Denk, who helped organize the memorial and often saw Bush on the beach in the early morning with her dogs ÂBarbara was just a real stand-up lady. She was a good lady,ÂŽ she said. ÂShe was very philanthropic, she and George, and they just, they loved their community, they loved the state, they donated to childrenÂs hospitals, they donated to just about every philanthropic cause around here.ÂŽ People gathered in a large circle to share stories about their encounters with Bush on the beach. She used to walk her dogs there with a Secret Service agent following behind. One participant made clear that Bush indeed always picked up after her dogs; it wasnÂt the job of the Secret Service. Many people signed a large poster board that featured a photo of the former Â“rst lady and several beach walkers and their dogs. Some also tossed Â”owers into the sea.With dogs in tow, Maine community remembers Barbara BushBy ROBERT BUKATYASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSDog walkers gather to remember former rst lady Barbara Bush at GoochÂs Beach in Kennebunk, Maine, Sunday.

(AP) Â„ Law enforcement authorities say they believe they have recovered all of the explosives stolen from a worksite in Pennsylvania. The theft of dynamite and 400 blasting caps from a Gregory General Contracting Company site was reported a week ago. Investigators recovered 320 sticks of dynamite and 404 blasting caps Friday from a creek in East Donegal Township about a mile away from the theft scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives originally reported that 700 pounds of dynamite was taken, but Special Agent Don Robinson said ofÂ“cials are Âincreasingly conÂ“dentÂŽ that the estimate was erroneous and all stolen materials have been recovered. No arrests have been reported. The company is a subcontractor of Williams Partners, which is managing the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project in Lancaster County. SEVERN, Md.

(AP) Â„ State police say a man believed to have Â“red scores of rounds into a Pennsylvania hunting cabin before Â”eeing has been found dead of a self-inÂ”icted gunshot wound. Police in Somerset County say Donald Smodic, of Apollo, was drinking in the Larimer Township cabin with a friend but left early Saturday after a brief altercation. Police say he began loading his vehicle with his belongings, which included two semiautomatic long guns and ammunition, but then removed the Â“rearms, loaded them and began shooting into the cabin. Police say Smodic Â“red about 121 rounds into the cabin at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. The other man was inside but wasnÂt injured. Smodic was later found dead in Salem Township, Westmoreland County, of a self-inÂ”icted gunshot wound. The case remains under investigation. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATION LOS ANGELES Â„ ItÂs another weekend of buzz versus pure star power at the box ofÂ“ce as the word of mouth sensation ÂA Quiet PlaceÂŽ Â“nds itself neck-and-neck again with Dwayne JohnsonÂs ÂRampage.ÂŽ This time buzz had the slight advantage. Studio estimates on Sunday have placed ÂA Quiet Place,ÂŽ with $22 million, in Â“rst, and ÂRampageÂŽ in second with $21 million, but itÂs possible those numbers may shift when Â“nal results are tallied on Monday. Still, John KrasinskiÂs ÂA Quiet PlaceÂŽ continues to be a mini-phenomenon. With a $17 million production budget, ÂA Quiet PlaceÂŽ has grossed $132.4 million from North American theaters in three weeks. ÂRampage,ÂŽ too, is down only 41 percent domestically in its second weekend and continues to rake in the dollars globally. The Â“lm boasts a worldwide tally of $283 million, and Johnson has continued using his social media accounts to hype the Â“lm and thank audiences. ÂI never take success like this for granted. Global success like this means so much,ÂŽ Johnson posted on his Instagram account Saturday night. ÂIÂm not a Marvel movie. ItÂs not Star Wars. ÂRampageÂ may as well have been called ÂDwayne Johnson and his albino gorilla friendÂ because itÂs such an obscure video game ... Thank you guys so much.ÂŽ The staying power of both somewhat overshadowed the newcomers, like Amy SchumerÂs ÂI Feel PrettyÂŽ and the sequel to the 2001 cult comedy ÂSuper Troopers,ÂŽ both of which nevertheless managed to Â“nd their own niche audiences despite largely negative reviews. ÂI Feel Pretty,ÂŽ released by STX Entertainment, grossed an estimated $16.2 million Â„ a little less than half of what SchumerÂs ÂTrainwreckÂŽ opened to in July 2015. Unlike ÂTrainwreck,ÂŽ Schumer did not write ÂI Feel Pretty,ÂŽ which is about an insecure woman who gets a life-changing conÂ“dence boost after a head injury. The concept became somewhat divisive and the subject of a fair amount of scrutiny. ÂSheÂs a force and thatÂs not going to change,ÂŽ notes comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. ÂSheÂs always going to push the envelope. Sometimes that will bring big box ofÂ“ce, sometimes it wonÂt.ÂŽ The partially crowd-funded ÂSuper Troopers 2,ÂŽ meanwhile, leaned into its April 20 opening and scored a fourth place, $14.7 million opening weekend for Broken Lizards and distributor 20th Century Fox. Fifth place went to the Blumhouse horror ÂTruth or DareÂŽ with $7.9 million in its second weekend, while LionsgateÂs thriller ÂTrafÂ“k,ÂŽ with Paula Patton, launched in ninth with $3.9 million. The box ofÂ“ce for the year remains down about 2.4 percent from last year, but that will change next week. ÂWeÂre going to see a huge turnaround later this week in the box ofÂ“ce fortunes with ÂAvengers: InÂ“nity War,ÂÂŽ Dergarabedian said. The Â“lm is tracking to make over $200 million in its Â“rst weekend in theaters, leading some experts to wonder whether the superhero pic could have the highest opening of all time, beating out even ÂStar Wars: The Force Awakens.ÂŽEstimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S.and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

Prosecutors say Mark Desimone shot and killed Duilio Antonio ÂTonyÂŽ Rosales in May 2016 outside of Juneau after a day that included drinking. Authorities have not disclosed an alleged motive. Jury selection is expected to start Monday. Rosales appeared to have been shot twice in the back of the head as he sat on a picnic bench removing his boots at Excursion Inlet, about 40 miles northwest of Juneau, according to court documents Â“led by prosecutors. A man who was nearby when the shooting occurred, Seth Bradshaw, told an Alaska State Trooper he heard the shots, which he initially thought came from someone target shooting, and ran into Desimone when he walked to the front of the cabin. Desimone told him, ÂI shot Tony. I shot him. ItÂs my fault,ÂŽ according to the charging documents. Desimone faces charges of murder, manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. Assistant District Attorney Amy Paige said prosecutors are giving options so jurors can decide which charge, if any, is appropriate. Desimone, 55, lived in Juneau in the 1980s, and had a brief political career in Arizona, winning a state House seat as a Democrat in a GOPleaning district in 2006. He resigned before his Â“rst term ended after being arrested in a domestic dispute with his then-wife. That case was dropped when he agreed to counseling. The bar he owned eventually closed, and his 2008 divorce case showed he had long struggled with alcohol abuse. He returned to Alaska shortly before the shooting. He worked as a day laborer and couch-surfed at the home of the owner of a jewelry store. Rosales worked at the store. At a pretrial hearing on Thursday, the issue of whether to allow evidence of alcohol on the trip was discussed. DesimoneÂs attorney, Deborah Macaulay, said every witness who was asked whether Desimone was intoxicated said Âno, absolutely not, totally not drunk, might have had one or two drinks throughout the day.ÂŽ Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg said that information would be allowed. He also said the victimÂs widow could testify that she spoke with him hours before he was killed and nothing seemed amiss. But he warned prosecutors not to call a witness solely to generate sympathy from jurors.Trial set to begin for ex-lawmaker in Alaska killingBy BECKY BOHRERASSOCIATED PRESSOfÂ“cials say two male residents and a female worker at the home died.

By MARTIN FENNELLYTampa Bay TimesTAMPA Â„ As usual, Andrei Vasilevskiy didnÂt speak in front of the cameras after the game. He has been like that since he hit the NHL. He still isnÂt comfortable with his English on TV. But Vasilevskiy spoke loudly and clearly in the first-round win over New Jersey, which concluded Saturday and in just five games. The Lightning and its 23-year-old goaltender made quick work of the Devils and earned some rest while the Bruins and Maple Leafs pound each other. And maybe Vasilevskiy put some questions to bed, like how heÂd perform on hockeyÂs biggest stage in his first season as a No. 1. All eyes were on him as the series began, including those belonging to Hall of Fame netminder Ken Dryden, who was visiting with his old coach, Scotty Bowman and who as a 23-year-old lead the Montreal Canadiens to a Stanley Cup. You never know where greatness begins. So it is with Vasilevskiy, who won four times in five games. That is what he did during the regular season, winning 44 games, and that is what the Vezina Trophy nominee is doing now, evidenced by a 2.01 goals against and glistening .941 save percentage against New Jersey.

PETERSBURG, Fla. Â„ It seemed unlikely that slumping Carlos Gomez would follow through on hitting a home run for his son. He had struck out three times in his first four hitless at-bats. His last trip to the plate, however, produced something special. Gomez hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays completed a three-game sweep Sunday by beating the Minnesota Twins 8-6. ÂHe had a really good game (Saturday) playing soccer,ÂŽ Gomez said. ÂThey won the game because of the goal he put in. So, I told him itÂs my turn. IÂll try and hit a homer for you. I did it and I know heÂs going to be really happy.ÂŽ C.J. Cron opened the ninth with a single off Addison Reed (0-1) and Gomez, mired in a 2-for38 slide, hit the next pitch over the left field wall. Earlier, Gomez broke his bat on his leg after striking out. ÂWhatÂs impressive is heÂs able to rebound from that and not let it consume him,ÂŽ Rays manager Kevin Cash. It was GomezÂs first walk-off hit, coming in his 1,329th game. ÂIÂm really happy,ÂŽ Gomez said. ÂBeing the first time, IÂm the right guy.ÂŽ Daniel Robertson had a career-high four hits for Tampa Bay, which has gone 7-5 after losing eight of nine to start the season.

By GREG AUMANTampa Bay TimesTAMPA Â„ The buzz at the top of this yearÂs NFL draft is a class of talented quarterbacks deep enough to challenge the all-time record of six in the first round, set in 1983 with a group that included future Hall of Famers John Elway, Jim Kelly and Dan Marino. ThatÂs setting the expectations high, and the Bucs wonÂt mind if this draft is a little closer to the Class of 1999, which saw five quarterbacks in the first round and three. Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith were the top three picks, and two more QBs went in the top 12. ÂItÂs a quarterbackdriven league,ÂŽ NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said this week.

Nadal was at his dominant best against Kei Nishikori, beating him 6-3, 6-2 in the Monte Carlo Masters final to become the first man in the Open era to win the same title 11 times. ÂItÂs unbelievable,ÂŽ Nadal said, pausing to take it in. ÂItÂs something difficult to imagine.ÂŽ A 10th win in 12 matches against Nishikori wasnÂt, however, even when the Japanese player broke him for a 2-1 lead early on. Nadal moved one ahead of rival Novak Djokovic for career Masters titles. NadalÂs first Monte Carlo title came as a scraggly-haired 18-year-old in 2005. But Nadal had already burst onto the scene in astonishing fashion at this sun-soaked Mediterranean venue two years earlier, beating French Open champion Albert Costa in the second round. It was the start of a remarkable ascendancy for Nadal in becoming the best clay-court player of all time, underlined by more than 50 titles on his favorite surface and including 10 French Opens, both of them records.Even modest Nada l wowed by record 31st Masters titleTENNISAP PHOTOSpainÂs Rafael Nadal celebrates winning the menÂs singles final match of the Monte Carlo Tennis Masters tournament against JapanÂs Kei Nishikori in Monaco on Sunday.

And now itÂs off to the European heartland of MotoGP after another dominant victory at the Grand Prix of the Americas and a leap toward the top of the season championship. Marquez stormed to his sixth consecutive victory at the Circuit of the Americas on Sunday, once again making easy work of a track where the four-time MotoGP champion has seldom even been tested. The only thing unusual about this race was MarquezÂs starting spot. A penalty for interfering with Movistar YamahaÂs Maverick Vinales in qualifying had bumped Marquez and his Repsol Honda from pole position to fourth. It made no difference.

Their series is now tied at 2-2. Page 2.
ÂWhen your team is playing better, it gives you a lot more confidence,ÂŽ Vasilevskiy said. ÂNow itÂs over with and we have to move on to the second round.ÂŽ Vasilevskiy moved on quite well. After giving up five goals in a Game 3 loss, displayed an ironclad short-term memory and held the Devils to two goals over the final two games, both on power plays, one on a 5-on-3 advantage. Mostly he closed the door, including several saves off breakaway chance, including two Saturday. Vasilevskiy credited the shutdown defense in front of him. ÂI know heÂs a young guy, but we feed off him, those big saves,ÂŽ Lightning defenseman Dan Girardi said. ÂHe just came up huge in every big situation,ÂŽ Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. ÂThere would be times in this series heÂd go seven to nine minutes without seeing a shot, then he would face a power play or a big-time shot. The timely saves were phenomenal for us. Even when he played the puck. He was putting it in a position for the defensemen to handle it. He was a pro. It was a big-time performance for him all five games.ÂŽ It was the kind of performance that underlines just why the Lightning felt comfortable in trading Ben Bishop. This is why. The now concluded series is why. ItÂs hard to tell which matters more sometimes, the defense in front of a goalie or a goalie behind the defense. LetÂs just say Vasilevskiy and his team are working in tandem right now, and the tandem is imposing. It will have to stay that way next round and any round after that. FYI, Vasilevskiy went 3-1 against the Maple Leafs during the season with a 2.47 goals against, and while he went just 1-3 against the Bruins, but with a 2.30 goals against, and his last outing against them was a 4-0 shutout that maybe served notice, though not as much as Brad MarchandÂs jabbing stick will if Boston-Tampa Bay happens. It will be another level of pressure on Vasilevskiy, though you couldnÂt tell that Saturday. ÂWell, I just want to play hockey and not think about anything else and what I still have to do or donÂt have to do,ÂŽ Vasilevskiy said. ÂI have to focus on the process and donÂt think about the past, think about the future.ÂŽ ÂHeÂs not always going to be perfect the whole game,ÂŽ Girardi said, ÂBut he made those saves he had to make. Guys are trying to block shots, making it easier for him. But when it gets through, heÂs there.ÂŽ He was against New Jersey. HeÂll have to do it again Toronto or Boston. ItÂs about what you do, not what you say. And thatÂs fine by this kid. He apparently likes when the lights are bright. He is speaking the universal playoff language. Just no cameras after.

The Bucs Â„ picking at No. 7, and well covered at quarterback with Jameis Winston Â„ donÂt care as much which passer goes where, as long as theyÂre getting picked. WhatÂs exciting for them is the player who went 7th in 1999, pushed down by those passers: 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey, headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year. ÂItÂll definitely impact the players that will be available,ÂŽ Bucs general manager Jason Licht said of the demand for quarterbacks high in the draft. ÂYou hear a lot of different scenarios Âƒ ItÂs our job to go through all the scenarios and to be prepared for every single one.ÂŽ The Bucs say theyÂve even prepared for the extremely unlikely scenario that no quarterbacks go in the top six. When they last picked No. 7, in 2014, only one quarterback went in the top six, and they still got a future Pro Bowl receiver in Mike Evans. But there are QBneedy teams at the top of the draft. Cleveland is likely to use either the No. 1 or No. 4 pick on a quarterback, and the Jets, having paid a fortune to move up from No. 6 to No. 3, almost certainly will take another. Other teams like the Bills could trade up into the top six to take another ahead of the Bucs. If four quarterbacks go in the top six picks Â„ thatÂs never happened Â„ it means at least one of the draftÂs top three nonQBs (Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, N.C. State defensive end Bradley Chubb, Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson) will be available at No. 7, far later than theyÂd go in most drafts. If only three go in the top six, that could set up the Bucs to take advantage of the QB demand, trading down from No. 7 and potentially adding another first-round pick, or multiple picks to help address their multiple needs. Which quarterback goes where? ESPNÂs Mel Kiper Jr. has had WyomingÂs Allen going to the Browns with the top pick since January, while some mock drafts have UCLAÂs Rosen as the most likely to fall a bit on Thursday. DonÂt forget about LouisvilleÂs Lamar Jackson, another likely first-round pick whose projections go all over the map. Three teams traded up to take quarterbacks in the top 10 last year, and thereÂs every expectation of more of the same. Teams tend to overpay to get a potential franchise q uarterback, and the Bucs can benefit from that, either in the players pushed down in the draft, or the windfall they may get in a trade. Quarterbacks remain the biggest unknown at the top of the draft, making it more unpredictable than usual. ÂThatÂs what makes this a lot more fun for us, going through all these scenarios,ÂŽ Licht said this week. ÂThatÂs the excitement of the draft. I remember as a kid, watching it, listening to it, reading about it and trying to guess whoÂs going to go where.

Eric Bledsoe passed the ball right from the perimeter on MilwaukeeÂs final possession. Antetokounmpo moved down low to the left side of the basket and Malcolm Brogdon came across the lane for a driving hook shot in traffic that hit the rim. The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo was in perfect position to reach over BostonÂs Jayson Tatum to tip in the miss for the go-ahead basket with 5 seconds left for a 104-102 win on Sunday over the Boston Celtics. Their first-round playoff series is tied at two games apiece. ÂItÂs a heck of play,ÂŽ coach Joe Prunty said. Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points, while Khris Middleton added 23. Middleton also played inyour-face defense in the final seconds on Marcus Morris, forcing the Boston forward to miss a 14-footer at the buzzer. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Boston. SPURS 103, WARRIORS 90: Manu Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter of what could have been his Â“ nal home game with the Spurs, and San Antonio beat the Golden State Warriors to avoid a series sweep as coach Gregg Popovich remained out following the death of his wife. LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs, but they were willed to the Â“ nish by the 40-year-old Ginobili, who has said he will decide in the offseason if he will return for a 17th season. Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who can wrap up the series in Game 5 at home Tuesday. Popovich missed his second straight game after his wife, Erin, passed away Wednesday following a prolonged illness. Lead assistant Ettore Messina led the Spurs again, but to a much different showing than in Game 3. WIZARDS 106, RAPTORS 98: John Wall took over down the stretch after Bradley Beal fouled out, having a hand in 10 of WashingtonÂs last 14 points and Â“ nishing with 27 points and 14 assists as the No. 8 seed Wizards came back to beat No. 1 Toronto and even the Eastern Conference Â“ rst-round playoff series at 2-all. The game was tied at 92 with about Â“ ve minutes left when Beal Â„ who led Washington with 31 points Â„ drew his sixth foul on a play in which he and DeMar DeRozan collided while Toronto had the ball. Beal raced along the sideline, put his hands on his head, then returned to the WizardsÂ bench area and threw a red towel before being restrained by teammates. The Raptors went up by two, but Wall pulled the Wizards even with a layup that drew a goaltending call, then put the hosts in front to stay by feeding Markieff Morris for a layup off the glass. As the Â“ nal seconds ticked away, Wall held up two Â“ ngers on each hand. Yep, itÂs 2-2, and the home team has won every game so far. Toronto will host Game 5 on Wednesday. DeRozan started 0 for 6, before winding up with 35 points, six assists and six rebounds. Kyle Lowry scored 19 points for Toronto.NBA PLAYOFFSTied up: GiannisÂ tip-in lifts Bucks over Celtics in Game 4AP PHOTOMilwaukee BucksÂ Giannis Antetokounmpo dunks during the first half of Game 4 of an NBA first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics on Sunday in Milwaukee.By Dan GelstonThe Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Â„ Jake Guentzel scored four straight goals to help send the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins into the next round with an 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 on Sunday. The Penguins play the winner of the Washington-Columbus series in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Washington leads that series 3-2. Sean Couturier also had a hat trick for the Flyers, who havenÂt won a Stanley Cup since 1975. Guentzel, not Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel or the injured Evgeni Malkin, won the game for the Penguins with goals off costly Flyers turnovers, leading them to their ninth straight playoff series win. He tied the game at 4 with 54 seconds left in the second period off a Flyers turnover. He scored 30 seconds into the third for the lead off another giveaway, and sealed one more lopsided win over the Flyers with two goals 10 seconds apart late in the period. It was 2-2 after one period, 4-4 after two, and nothing was decided in the fiercest game of the series between the longstanding rivals until Guentzel took control. The Flyers lost all three games at home and not even a solid start could help them get out of the first round for the first time since 2012. PREDATORS 5, AVALANCHE 0: Mattias Ekhom ignited the offense early with the Â“ rst goal by a Nashville defenseman in the series, Pekka Rinne stopped 22 shots and the top-seeded Predators advanced to the second round. Austin Watson, Filip Forsberg, Nick Bonino and Viktor Arvidsson also scored to help the Predators move on to face Winnipeg. They were 3-1-1 against the Jets in the regular season. Nashville removed any sort of drama with two goals in the opening period and two more in the second to hush the capacity crowd. Rinne was on his game in notching his fourth career postseason shutout. Andrew Hammond ran out of magic in net, allowing Â“ ve goals. The third-string goaltender had 44 saves during a Game 5 win in Nashville to extend the series. But he couldnÂt turn back a formidable Nashville offense that won a second straight playof f contest in Denver.STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFSPittsburgh wins 8-5 to Â“ nish o Philadelphi a
The Sun / Monday, April 23, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3The fire still burns as strongly for Nadal. ÂThese kind of things not going to happen forever. So (I) just try to play with the full passion and with the full energy and concentration, full love for the sport until I can,ÂŽ the 31-year-old Nadal said. ÂI know the day to say goodbye is closer than 10 years ago.ÂŽ Given how easily he won this tournament, without dropping a set, that parting moment seems a long way off yet. His level of perfection is something for others to worry about. After his semifinal, he rushed to an outside practice court to perfect his forehand. ÂI was just looking to relax,ÂŽ Nadal said. ÂTo hit some balls hard and to move the arm without nerves.ÂŽ NadalÂs win also ensured the Spaniard keeps his top ranking ahead of Roger Federer, as well as taking him to 76 career titles. ÂTo put another trophy in my museum, in my academy, is going to be something great,ÂŽ Nadal said. ÂThis is one of the most important ones in terms of (my) personal feeling.ÂŽ Nishikori was chasing a first Masters title, but the Japanese player took 11 minutes to hold for 1-1. ÂI knew it was going to be tough,ÂŽ said Nishikori, who complained of tiredness. ÂMy legs were very heavy today, playing three sets (for) three days in a row (before the final). It wasnÂt easy physically.ÂŽ Nadal won on his first match point with a stinging backhand winner, thrust both hands into the air and then jogged over to offer Nishikori a sympathetic hug. Nishikori is still working his way back to form and full fitness, after missing the 2017 U.S. Open and this yearÂs Australian Open because of a torn tendon in his right wrist. ÂIt was a great week for me, I had an injury and couldnÂt play for a long time,ÂŽ said Nishikori, who is ranked 36. He can take encouragement from beating Tomas Berdych Â„ the 2015 runner-up here Â„ and Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic on the way to the final. Nadal has not dropped a set in seven matches since coming back from a recurrence of a right hip injury that forced him to abandon during the fifth set of his Australian Open quarterfinal against Cilic. The injury relapse subsequently forced him out of the Mexico Open and Masters tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami, but Nadal appears to be back to his ruthless and rapid best on clay. Now he has his sights firmly set on an 11th title at Barcelona next week, and then an 11th French Open title at Roland Garros. NADALFrom Page 1 Iannone of Italy by the first turn. Iannone held the lead through the slingshot downhill left turn but couldnÂt fight off Marquez to keep it. By the time their bikes were ripping down the long straight halfway through the first lap, Marquez was on the hunt and he made an easy pass for the lead. From there, it was just a matter of avoiding mistakes on an easy Sunday drive. There was no chance of reeling him back to the pack. Marquez pulled away lap by lap until his lead reached 7 seconds, and then he coasted in for the win. Vinales and Iannone knew their day would be a fight for second, not first. Vinales finished second and Iannone was third. ÂMarc and this track are another story,ÂŽ Iannone said. ÂI hope to fight with him another time.ÂŽ Marquez has been unbeatable at the Circuit of the Americas. HeÂs won every race since it first hosted MotoGP in 2013. SundayÂs victory moved Marquez to second in the season championship, a single point behind DucatiÂs Andrea Dovizioso of Italy. And by quickly grabbing the lead Sunday, Marquez stayed clear from the kind of wild racing three weeks ago in Argentina that earned him two penalties for bumping other riders and causing a crash. His antics in South America drew warnings from MotoGP officials that dangerous racing would draw heavy sanctions for any rider. Marquez was the first to feel the consequences with his penalty in Texas for impeding Vinales in qualifying. Marquez had seemed cavalier about the penalty that bumped him from pole position and showed why on Sunday: No other rider was in his class once the race started. ÂAfter what happened in Argentina, I changed my strategy and tried to lead from the start,ÂŽ Marquez said. ÂOnce I saw the gap, I was able to manage the race.ÂŽ As he crossed the finish line, Marquez stood on his bike, thumped his chest with both hands and took a bow toward his garage. He also grabbed an American flag for a victory lap to honor Nicky Hayden, the American 2006 MotoGP champion who died in 2017 when he was hit by a car while training on his bicycle in Italy. ÂI enjoyed a lot to make that lap in his memory,ÂŽ Marquez said. VinalesÂ first podium of the season puts him just four points behind Marquez in the championship standings heading to the next race in Spain. Vinales won three of the first five races of 2017 but hasnÂt taken the checkered flag since winning in France nearly a year ago. ÂWe are coming,ÂŽ Vinales said. ÂIÂm actually really happy. Today I think was the maximum we could do. I canÂt wait to get to Spain.ÂŽ MOTOGPFrom Page 1Marc Marquez (93) of Spain celebrates his win in the Grand Prix of the Americas motorcycle race at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin, Texas, on Sunday. [AP PHOTO/ERIC GAY] By JOHN ZENORAssociated PressBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Â„ Josef Newgarden applauded IndyCarÂs decision not to risk 16 more minutes on a treacherous, rain-soaked track, even though he could have been the biggest beneficiary. Other drivers werenÂt so happy with earlier calls. Newgarden will remain up front at Barber Motorsports Park on Monday for the completion of the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Drivers got in just over 44 minutes of a scheduled 2-hour, or 90-lap, race Sunday under heavy rain that caused some cars to hydroplane and affected visibility. The race was called before it was halfway through, and thus official. ÂI was calling for us not to run and I was in the easiest situation,ÂŽ Newgarden said. ÂI was leading the race, had the best viewpoint. We do another (16) minutes under caution and we call the thing halfway from a time standpoint, we pick up the win. ItÂs more advantageous for us to get it in, but I didnÂt want to do that. I didnÂt think conditions were right.ÂŽ The 2-hour limit of total race time will remain in place. Newgarden started on the pole position and led the first 22 laps of a race he has won two of the past three years. The race restarted after a 37-minute delay because of the track conditions, but only got another few laps in before parking the cars again. The race was called after another 1-hour, 23-minute wait. Sebastien Bourdais is in second, followed by two-time race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, points leader Alexander Rossi and James Hinchcliffe. Rossi said at times he could see Âabsolutely nothing.ÂŽ He questioned the decision to put up the green flag after the first yellow caution, and Âobviously the results of that was a car hydroplaning.ÂŽ It was the first time racing in such rainy conditions with this yearÂs new aero kit. ÂThis is the first actual wet running IÂve done besides a Sunday morning warmup,ÂŽ Rossi said. ÂIt was very bad (Sunday). I donÂt know if that has to do with the generation of the car or not.ÂŽ Two-time race winner Will Power, who started in second and has won twice in Alabama, spun out on the first turn of lap 17 and slammed into the inside wall. He said on the radio: ÂThatÂs it.ÂŽ Power can continue his race, but IndyCar was impounding his Chevrolet overnight so the team couldnÂt work on it. Bad track conditions delay end of IndyCar raceChristopher Steel San Diego, CA The medical community now has a safer and more effective alternative to sex pills, which they can immediately start offering to male patients with sexual performance issues. It will not require a prescription. The alternative, called Sensum+ is an amazing new sex cream containing an active ingredient that activates a sensation pathway on the penis known as TRPA1. When applied as directed, it leads to incredible arousal and triggers erections more easily. It also promotes powerful climaxes and ultimately results in signiÂ“ cant improvements in performance. ÂMen can expect to experience life changing sexual imp rovements with regular use. The penis will become hyper sensitive, making them easily aroused and excitableÂŽ explains Dr. James L. Yeager, the creator of Sensum+ ÂAnd thatÂs because Sensum+ does what no other sex pill or drug has done before ÂŠ it stimulates a special sensory pathway right below the skin, which leads to phenomenal improvements in sensation.ÂŽ Overtime, constant exposure (especially if circumcised) leads to decreased penis sensitivity, which can cause problems with arousal and erection quality. There just isnÂt enough feeling to get excited.ÂŽ ÂDiabetes, antidepressants and normal aging also leads to desensitization, a can make the situation even worse.ÂŽ ÂThis is what makes Sensum+ so effective and why the clinical studies and clinical use studies have been so positive.ÂŽMISDIAGNOSIS LEADS TO UNNEEDED PRESCRIPTIONSAfter years of clinical research and testing, Dr. Yeager and his team have discovered an incredible compound that triggers arousal and helps men achieve erections more easily. This compound isnÂt a drug. ItÂs the active ingredient in Sensum+ And according to users, it produces sensational results. Many men report remarkable imp rovements in sexual performance and overall satisfaction. They are more sexually active than theyÂve been in years with the average Sensum+ user over the age of 50. Clinical studies show Sensum+ Âs key ingredient activates the TRPA1 sensation pathway right below the skin of the penis. According to research, many men adults and seniors who suffer sexually have lost sensation in their penis due to constant rubbing and exposure and health related issues such as diabetes, hernia surgery, use of some antidepressants, multiple sclerosis, and other type of illnesses. This desensitization often makes sex extremely challenging. Without a 100% feeling in the penis, its next to impossible to get truly aroused. Worse, modern day sex drugs have absolutely no effect on sensation and are laden with side effects. They simply stimulate an erection by enhancing blood Â” ow. ItÂs why most men are rarely satisÂ“ ed after taking them and why Sensum+ users are al ways stocking up on more and couldnÂt be happier. ÂWe knew the science behind Sensum+ was there, but we never expected results like weÂre seeing. ItÂs far exceeded our expectationsÂŽ said a spokesperson for the company. A STAGGERING 80% IMPROVEMENT IN SENSITIVITYResearchers have conducted several clinical studies on Sensum+ and the results from the most recent are undoubtedly the most impressive. A data analysis of three clinical sur veys of 370 men showed that an amazing 80% of Sensum+ users experienced dramatic improvements while using the cream and as a result were aroused easier and a phenomenal boost in performance. Additionally, 77.4% of men also reported much more satisfying climaxes, making sex for both them and their partners nearly 300% more satisfying. ÂI have full feeling and sensitivity back in my penis. Everything feels better. My erections are harder, IÂm more easily aroused, I can Â“ nally climax again. This stuff honestly works like magic in the bedroom. I couldnÂt be happier at 66!ÂŽ raves one Sensum+ user. HOW SENSUM+ WORKSSensum+ is a new sex cream for men thatÂs to be applied twice a day for the Â“ rst two weeks then just once every day after. There are no harmful side effects for either the user or partner. It also does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is an organic compound known as cinnamaldehyde with a patented combination of sexually rousing extracts. Research shows that as men get older, they often lose sensitivity to the penis. Although very subtle, this desensitization can signiÂ“ cantly hinder sexual performance and lead to serious problems with becoming aroused and staying/getting hard. The cinnamaldehyde in Sensum+ is one of the only known ingredients to activate a special sensation pathway on the penis called TRPA1. Once activated, it restores tremendous sensation to the penis, stimulating arousal and powerful erections. This would explain why so many users are experiencing impressive results so quickly and why the makers of Sensum+ offer their low cots cream with an amazing guarantee. GUARANTEE DISCOUNTED SUPPLY TAKES RISK OFF CONSUMERSA large percentage of men report life changing results with Sensum+ ThatÂs why it is now being sold with an aboveindustry standard guarantee. ÂWe can only make this guarantee because we are 100% certain this cream works,ÂŽ says Yeager. ÂWe want to take risk off the consumers. So besides offering massive discounts, weÂre also offering this guarantee, so they donÂt have to risk a cent.ÂŽ HereÂs how it works: Use the cream exactly as directed and in just one week, you must feel a signiÂ“ cant improvement in sexual sensations. You must be more easily aroused with harder, longer lasting erections and be having the best sex youÂve had in years. Otherwise, simply return the empty bottles. Then, Innovus Pharmaceuticals will refund your money immediately.HOW TO GET SENSUM+This is the ofÂ“ cial release of Sensum +.

Stone Crabs starting pitcher Brock Burke limited the Cardinals to one run on six hits and a walk in his 5 Â‡ innings of work, exiting with a 10-1 lead in the sixth inning and a seemingly secure lead. However, CharlotteÂs bullpen gave up seven runs including three in the ninth before Taylor worked out of the jam for his first save of the year. Following a 2 RBI single by Jose Martinez and a hit batter, Taylor induced a fly out and struck out Andy Young swinging to kill the CardinalsÂ late rally. Lucius Fox and Joey Roach led the way at the plate for Charlotte, combining for seven of the Stone CrabsÂ 13 hits on the night. FoxÂs 4 for 5 effort included an RBI triple and boosts his average to .383 on the season while Roach scored three times and also knocked in three runs hitting out of the eighth spot in the lineup. Nate Lowe slugged the teamÂs only homer of the game with a two run shot in the third inning to give his club a 5-0 lead. With the series sweep of Palm Beach complete the Stone Crabs will hit the road for seven games, which begins on Monday at 6:30 p.m. as they play the first of three games at St. Lucie. CharlotteÂs Brandon Lawson (0-1, 4.50) will toe the rubber against the MetsÂ Justin Dunn (1-1, 1.26).SUN PHOTO BY TOM OÂNEILLCharlotte starting pitcher Brock Burke exited SundayÂs game with a 10-1 lead over Palm Beach in the sixth inning, but the Stone Crabs just barely held on for the win. CHARLOTTE 10, PALM BEACH 8Associated PressANAHEIM, Calif. Â„ Brandon Belt of the San Francisco Giants saw 21 pitches in an epic plate appearance against Los Angeles Angels rookie right-hander Jaime Barria in the first inning Sunday, the most since records began in 1988. The previous high of 20 pitches in a plate appearance since 1988 was when HoustonÂs Ricky Gutierrez struck out against ClevelandÂs Bartolo Colon on June 26, 1998, according to Retrosheet. The left-handed Belt peppered the crowd with plenty of souvenirs by fouling off 11 straight pitches, including two long fouls down the right-field line, before lining out to right fielder Kole Calhoun. Belt was greeted with high-fives when he returned to the dugout. Angels pitching coach Charles Nagy made a mound visit to check on Barria after the Belt at-bat. Barria had thrown nine pitches to Joe Panik, who hit a leadoff single, before throwing 21 to Belt. BeltÂs 21-pitch at-bat sets recordAP PHOTOSan Francisco GiantsÂ Brandon Belt, right, reacts after hitting a foul ball during the first inning against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, Calif., on Sunday. MLB streak to 16 games with a single in the third. He had shared the old mark of 15 with Kirby Puckett (1994) and Josh Willingham (2012). Dating to last season, Dozier has a hit in 23 straight games. Adeiny Hechavarria hit a three-run homer during a four-run sixth that put Tampa Bay up 6-3. It was his first homer since last Sept. 27, and came on an 0-2 pitch from Alan Busenitz. Cron hit his third homer over the past two games, a two-run shot off Twins right-hander Phil Hughes in the first. Hughes allowed two runs and five hits over 3 Â‡ innings in his first big league start since last July 14. He ended last season on the 60-day disabled list due to thoracic outlet syndrome and started this sidelined by a strained left oblique. ÂNot an ideal start, especially pitch-count wise,ÂŽ said Hughes, who threw 35 of 70 pitches in the first. ÂIt didnÂt give me a chance to go as deep as I would have liked. But it feels good to be back.ÂŽ The Twins tied it at 2 on Eduardo EscobarÂs second-inning solo homer off Yonny Chirinos and an RBI single by Eddie Rosario in the third. Chirinos, making his first appearance as the RaysÂ fourth starter, gave up two runs and four hits in 4 Â‡ innings.TrainerÂs roomTwins: OF Byron Buxton (migraines) went 0 for 4 as the DH for Class A Fort Myers and against Bradenton. He may play in center field Monday and Tuesday for the Florida State League team.

The Rays beat the Twins 8-6. By MIKE FITZPATRICKAssociated PressNEW YORK Â„ With prized prospect Gleyber Torres on board, the New York Yankees are going young. After getting called up from the minors, Torres made his highly anticipated major league debut Sunday against Toronto. The 21-year-old infielder was at second base, batting eighth in a Yankees lineup that didnÂt include a player 30 or older for the first time since Sept. 29, 1989, according to STATS. Veteran left fielder Brett Gardner was rested, so the senior starter on the field was 29-year-old catcher Austin Romine. Rated among the top five or six prospects in baseball, Torres became the youngest position player to appear in a game for the Yankees since 20-year-old Melky Cabrera in 2005. Atlanta second baseman Ozzie Albies, also 21, is the only major leaguer younger than Torres to play in a game this season. ÂWe just feel like heÂs ready,ÂŽ New York manager Aaron Boone said. ÂWe think he has a chance to be a special player.ÂŽ The crowd at Yankee Stadium buzzed when Torres came to the plate for the first time with two runners in scoring position in the second inning. He received a warm ovation, then struck out swinging at an 82 mph curveball from Blue Jays left-hander Jaime Garcia for the second out. With two on in the fourth, Torres grounded into an inning-ending double play. Torres was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he was hitting .347 with a home run, three doubles, one triple and 11 RBIs. He got the news from RailRiders manager Bobby Mitchell, with his teammates around to take part in the celebration. ÂA little bit surprised. Excited, and super happy,ÂŽ Torres said. ÂI think every player has their dreams.ÂŽ Torres can play all over the infield, but for now Boone said the club plans to play him on a regular basis at second base, which has been a problem spot this season. New York hopes Torres can provide a boost for a team thatÂs been shoddy on defense and inconsistent overall so far. Boone said Torres doesnÂt have a specific tool that will ÂwowÂŽ anyone, such as prodigious power or blazing speed. But he possesses an excellent sense of how to play the game. ÂHeÂs a really complete player,ÂŽ Boone said. ÂHe does everything really well on a baseball field.ÂŽ One of four players acquired from the Chicago Cubs in July 2016 for Aroldis Chapman, now the YankeesÂ closer again, Torres arrived in New York on Saturday evening and said his wife would be on hand for his debut. Torres took optional batting practice on the field with teammates in the morning. When the Bleacher Creatures chanted his name during Roll Call at the beginning of the game, the rookie was ready and acknowledged them. He said he had a difficult time nodding off Saturday night and got only three or four hours of sleep. He was given a locker between sluggers Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge, and wore No. 25 in pinstripes Â„ same as former Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. ÂI thinks itÂs awesome that @TorresGleyber is wearing #25 for the @Yankees. I hope he becomes a star and millions buy his jerseys. Then when I see them in the stadium and on the streets I can tell people, ÂLook, another Tex jersey,ÂŽ Teixeira tweeted. Yankees newcomer Giancarlo Stanton, last yearÂs big league home run champion and NL MVP, said he likes TorresÂ swing. ÂThereÂs a lot going on, but itÂs very precise. HeÂs got some cool action in there Â„ and thereÂs some pop at the end,ÂŽ Stanton said. ÂHeÂs going to be good, man. He is good already.ÂŽ New York also signed right-hander David Hale to a major league contract and selected him from Triple-A. Infielder-outfielder Jace Peterson was designated for assignment, and infielder Tyler Wade was optioned to Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre. Wade was batting .086 (3 for 35) with four RBIs. MLBTop prospect Torres makes debut for Yankees By MICHAEL KELLYAssociated PressDENVER Â„ Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant was hit on the head with a 96 mph pitch from ColoradoÂs German Marquez on Sunday but appeared to have escaped serious injury. Cubs spokesman Peter Chase said Bryant passed tests and had no sign of a concussion. Chase said Bryant had a cut above his left eye and will be on the team charter flight to Cleveland. ÂAs good as can be expected,ÂŽ manager Joe Maddon said after ChicagoÂs 9-7 win. ÂI havenÂt heard the word concussion yet, so hopefully good.ÂŽ Bryant appeared stunned as manager Maddon and the CubsÂ training staff attended to him. Bryant walked off the field very slowly, with one arm around head athletic trainer PJ Mainville and the other around assistant athletic trainer Matt Johnson. ÂMatty was asking him questions, and he was answering them correctly,ÂŽ Maddon said. ÂThatÂs just a bad moment. I didnÂt know where KB was at when I got there, but I just knew he needed to be held onto. ÂYou get hit in the head, you get wobbly. You get punched in the jaw, youÂre wobbly,ÂŽ Maddon said. ÂI wanted to make sure to steady him. He steadied up, and then we walked him off and I said, ÂYouÂre out. Go sit down.ÂŽÂ Maddon said Bryant did not ask to stay in the game. ÂEven if he had he was out,ÂŽ Maddon said. Bryant was not available to reporters after the game. Chase said Bryant was still being evaluated. Bryant, the 2016 NL MVP, is hitting .319 with two home runs and 11 RBIs. Chicago hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Andy Haines were ejected by plate umpire Cory Blaser as Cubs trainers attended to Bryant.
