NEWS WIRE SEBRING „ County Commissioners got red noses from Keith TobyŽ Stokes at their last meeting, a thankyou for recognizing National Travel and Tourism Week, May 6-12. Founder of the American Clown Museum and School, Stokes has trained new clowns to give joy to hospital patients and school children. His school and museum has also provided Lake Placid one of its tourist draws. While Lake Placid owes a lot of its tourism to Stokes, the Lake Placid Mural Society and the many caladium growers, the town and county have gained increased notoriety thanks to increased marketing inside and outside Florida. Casey Wohl Hartt, lead marketing consultant for the TDC/ VisitSebring/VisitSebring, said Wednesday that VisitFlorida had pitched the area as a story to Edible South Florida, a quarterly print magazine on exploring South Florida through food. While the Sebring Soda Festival was the initial story, Hartt said, local tourism boosters spoke with the reporter about other food attractions. The story became a fullpage article, Hartt said. Unlike marketing, the TDC had no editorial control but also didnt have to pay for it. Normally, Hartt said, the magazine charges $2,950 for a full-page ad in the magazine, with 60,000 monthly readers. Instead, the magazine promoted the county free on Twitter to 24,000 followers, Hartt said.County recognizes tourism weekBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER VisitSebring gets an article in Edible South FloridaSEBRING „ For recently retired Sebring Police Lt. Russel Morris, solving a major crime wasnt necessarily what made him feel he was a successful police of“cer. Instead, it has been a feeling that he listened to people and gave them a fair shake,Ž he said. A situation that showed that happened a few years ago when he saw a young man doing burnouts with his tires. Instead of giving him a citation, Morris advised the young man that if he continued the behavior youre going to have to buy new tires.Ž A few years later, Morris said the man approached him and thanked him for not having given him a citation. He said I made a difference in his life,Ž Morris said. In another situation, he helped respond to a series of “ghts and helped keep one man on the ground, Morris recalled. Evidently, by the next night, that same man was released on bond. That night, Morris tried to control another series of “ghts. One of the perpetrators kept kicking Morris but the man arrested the night before urged the man to allow Morris to do his job, Morris said. When you treat someone fairly, they respond in the same way, Morris said. But it was never a certainty that Morris was to become a police of“cer. At one point, he worked for Babcock Furniture. He had a friend who was a law enforcement of“cer who invited him to shooting practice. After that, he invited him to go to become an auxiliary member. And eventually Morris went to the law enforcement training academy. Over the years, Morris said, hes worked for more than six police chiefs and interim chiefs.

Highlands County has a contract with Alison Yuko for a $125 hourly rate, according to Assistant County Administrator Tasha Morgan on Friday. The contract is in place, Morgan said, but Yuko is not expected to be on-site in Highlands County. Carmichael con“rmed that, saying work would be forwarded to Yukos Orlando of“ce, as needed. Carmichael also pointed out that the market rate for such work is usually from $250-$350 per hour, or more, depending on the situation and experience of the attorney. Given Highlands is a small rural county and this is a temporary need, Carmichael said Yuko was willing to assist her at a below-market rate. Meanwhile, Morgan said, interviews have not been scheduled yet for a full-time assistant.

Voluntary PreKindergarten is a free program to prepare every 5-year-old for kindergarten. To attend summer VPK, children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2018 and cannot have completed a VPK program already. The school districts locations for summer VPK are: Memorial Elementary in Avon Park, Woodlawn Elementary in Sebring, and Lake Country Elementary in Lake Placid. Superintendent Brenda Longshore said VPK is a big bene“t to young students as they make the transition into the kindergarten classroom. It de“nitely makes a difference with our students and we are thankful that we can provide that service to our community,Ž she said. The program will run 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday from May 29 through July 20. July 4 will be a holiday. The districts summer VPK program provides free breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. No transportation will be provided. For more information and to register, go to the School Board of Highlands County website … www.highlands.k12.”.us. Click on Parent Tab and then VPK Information. Scroll down to Registration Instructions and complete steps one through four. For questions, contact Tracy Mays, School Board of Highlands County, Curriculum Department, at 863-471-5569. In 2002, Florida was one of the “rst states in the country to offer free prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds regardless of family income. The Voluntary Pre-K prepares children to be ready for school. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems. They are also better prepared for kindergarten, especially in the areas of pre-reading, premath and social skills. Data from the Florida Department of Educations Of“ce of Early Learning show in 2013, 82 percent of children who “nished VPK were ready for kindergarten. Only 53 percent of children who didnt attend VPK were kindergarten ready.District enrolling for summer VPKBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER MARC VALERO/STAFFThe School Board of Highlands County is enrolling now for its summer Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program, which helps prepare children for kinder garten. (Pictured: the Kindergarten Learning Centers 10th anniversary celebration in March 2017.) Editors Note: During National Travel and Tourism Week, May 6-12, Highlands News-Sun is partnering with the Highlands County Tourist Development Council to feature in print media locals who help drive the Highlands County tourism industry. If youve ever visited River Greens Golf Course in Avon Park, you know there are two faces you will likely see who are the glue that hold it all together. One who runs the inside and the other who takes care of keeping the outside nice and green. Owners Rodney and Lisa Davis have been partners and spouses for 40 years as of this year. Contrary to superstit ious belief, being married on Friday, Jan. 13 has played well in their favor. River Greens is not only a special place in general but even more so because it is the place they met so many years ago. In 2019, River Greens South in Avon Park will be celebrating 50 years in business here in Florida. It is owned and operated by the same man who started it back in 1969 with his father and brother after relocating from West Lafayette, Ohio. Their sister course, River Greens North, is still located in Ohio and in business today. Throughout the years, the Davis familys commitment has stayed the same: To make you feel like family from the moment you walk through the doors and to make the entire experience one that makes you want to tell everyone you know. Rodney and Lisa Davis have seen many faces through their doors throughout the years, but one golf fans may know well is Lexi Thompson. Thompson competed in the Bagwell Junior Tournament at the age of 10, beating out those who were 17-18 years old. She is now a rock star in the LPGA. Rodney and Lisa Davis say there is no way they would still be in business after all this time if it wasnt for their faithful customers who have become family. Stop by and see them and play a round of golf at River Greens. The course is at 47 W. Lake Damon Drive. Friendly faces abound at River GreensSPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN COURTESY PHOTORodney and Lisa Davis are owners of River Greens Golf Course in Avon Park.863-465-1800to sign up for our free, no obligation seminar to learn how this and other programs can benet you and your family!Call Heartland Financial Group at: Do you plan to pass your annuity to heirs?

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 7, 2018 When your infant cries in the middle of the night, you have to guess what he wants. Later, you get baby speak, and its a game of charades. Hes talking in complete sentences now ... mostly. Oh, sure. Hes a toddler. If he gets upset at something, hell pitch a “t. Between crying “ts, though, hell tell us precisely how he feels about something. Its not always nice. Give him juice when he wants milk, or milk when he wants tea, and hell say it: No-ah! Tee-yuh!Ž Theres a yuhŽ sound after everything these days. Sometimes he wants choco-moke.Ž What do you say?Ž I ask him. Peeeaase,Ž he says with a grin. The letter LŽ gives him “ts. Used to be his favorite fruit was appoh.Ž Hes had trouble with the letter R,Ž too. His favorite little red engine is a “y tuck,Ž and his favorite amphibian is a fohg.Ž When he names parts of my face, I have eyebouzŽ and a foh-eddŽ above them. Hes also started to not do things the same way we teach him. It took a while to get him to brush his teeth instead of his tongue, and ”oss with a ”oss wand. But the other day, Mommy brushed her tongue while brushing her teeth. He saw this, slammed down his toothbrush, held out his hands in bewilderment and said, What going on he-yah? I not do dat!Ž Probably shouldnt let him learn to speak from Cookie Monster: Me no need him talk like dat. Dat not good.Ž He picks out his own books for storytime. He insists on turning pages, reading aloud certain parts, pointing out puppies and cow-uhs,Ž and sometimes leans so far forward, Daddy cant see. Daddy cant read the page without glasses, anyway. When Daddy starts dozing off, reading aloud words that arent on the page „ because thats what you do when you doze „ he wakes me up: Dah-dee!!Ž When books are done and hes tucked in, the talking keeps going. I know: My son, the chatterbox. Go “gure. Our boy babbles at night. If he hasnt talked to us enough in the day, hell keep talking to himself or his stuffed animals, holding meetings in bed. No, no. Yes, yes. No, no, no! Yes, yes, yes! Awwight! CUP-AKE! (cupcake)Ž At least, we think hes talking to his stuffed animalsƒ. If hes not, weve got bigger problems. Phil Attinger is a staff writer for the Highlands News-Sun. He can be reached by email at phil. attinger@highlandsnewssun.comThats what he said Its a tradition. Every Fourth of July since 1991, swimmers, then kayakers, and now just about anyone who can navigate the Peace River, has taken to the water to swim from the banks of Charlotte Harbor to Harpoon Harrys at Fishermens Village. People look forward to expressing their freedom with the mile-long swim each year. Its a time for friends and families to take on the challenge together. The founder of this newspaper company, Derek Dunn-Rankin, participated in the swim well into his 80s. Unfortunately, through the fault of no one in particular, this years swim is in danger of not happening. Or maybe the more accurate description is this years swim faces some challenges „ because everyone who has ever taken the plunge into those brackish waters is determined the swim will go on. The big issue is construction that will block the normal starting point on the sandy shoreline under the Gilchrist Bridge. Charlotte County is in the middle of building its harborwalk that will run from the east side of U.S. 41 to the western shoreline. The entire area is labeled a construction zone and pedestrians „ and swimmers „ will be prohibited from accessing the shoreline until later this summer. The county is offering organizers of the swim a spot in Bayshore Live Oak Park as a starting point. But, there are caveats. Organizers „ and there really are none „ must take out a permit and insurance. The cost of both would be somewhere north of $2,000. The problem is twofold. First, no one is really in charge of the Freedom Swim „ even though Punta Gorda attorney Michael Haymans is the go-to person and the guy who serves as unof“cial starter each Fourth of July. Haymans „ who is also trying to barter a compromise with the Punta Gorda City Council on the parking issues at Gilchrist Park „ has been cast into the role of negotiator, again. The lack of an of“cial sponsor means there is no bank account to pay for anything like a permit or insurance. The whole idea of the swim is an expression of freedom „ to do what you want, when you want. So the idea of forming a club or organization to oversee the event was never a thought „ nor should it be. Haymans is on record that no permit will be requested. He said he is still looking for a spotŽ that swimmers can use as a starting point. He said by imposing rules like permits and insurance, he fears the county is setting the stage to take over the event. Pretty soon, he fears, with insurance and so on people will be marking swimmers with numbers and the swim will digress from an expression of freedom to a bureaucratic boondoggle (our word, not his). The swim must go on. There are ways to save it. One is that a person, or group, or organization, could come forward and pay for the permit and insurance. Its not that much money. Or, maybe Haymans can “nd a loophole or a spotŽ on the Charlotte Harbor shore that swimmers can legally use. Or, maybe, just maybe, everyone shows up and jumps in the water. After all, its all about freedom. „ Sun NewspapersFreedom Swim can overcome July 4 obstacleOUR VIEW Phil Attinger REAL LIFE Tim Smolarick Publisher Romona Washington Executive Editor JOIN THE CONVERSATIONLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

VIEWPOINTS Karen Clogston Editor Rob Kearly Circulation Director rob.kearly@highlandsnewssun.comWhen Will Weatherford took the podium Wednesday morning to open a Florida business economic summit in Orlando, his message was straightforward and clear. Everybody needs a real chance at having a secure future, Weatherford will tell those attending the Florida Business Leaders Summit on Prosperity and Economic Opportunity. The way to do that is to attack the issue of generational poverty. That wont be easy. When people hear about 4 percent unemployment rates, or the stock market performing well, or real estate doing well, they forget there is a large section of the population that doesnt have a large portfolio. They might not have real estate,Ž he said. Its a serious problem in Florida. A 2016 report by the Florida Senate Committee on Children, Families, and Elder Affairs estimated that nearly 15 percent of adults and 24 percent of children here live in poverty. Weatherford, a Land OLakes Republican, is the former Speaker of the state House of Representatives. He is not a newbie to raising awareness of systemic poverty that keeps some families locked in lifelong economic despair. As Speaker, Weatherford spoke about that topic on the opening day of the 2014 Legislative Session. He also can talk with the authority of personal experience. He was the second-oldest in a family of nine children. Money was scarce. The family moved often. Education was his key to achieve a better future. He played football at Jacksonville University, where his roommate was the son of a state representative. That relationship helped open the door to a political career, but that wouldnt have been possible without education. Poverty is a problem that has plagued society as far back as history goes,Ž he said. I dont know that there is a way to completely eradicate it, but we should be creating a society where someone born into poverty doesnt have to stay that way. It wont happen overnight.Ž Weatherford said that education doesnt necessarily have to come from college to create opportunity. It all starts with choice. Its about empowering kids and parents to see there are multiple pathways to success,Ž he said. Your child does not have to go to college to be successful in life. There are other avenues that are available to them.Ž Increased vocational training is one major avenue for acquiring speci“c job skills, and there is a new emphasis on that. But training alone wont bust the cycle. Yes, we need to get creative in our educational system, but there are other signi“cant challenges to the way we handle poverty today. We have created disincentives for some people to work their way out of it,Ž he said. Im not here to say government doesnt play a role in this because it certainly does. But in the 21st century, we need to re-evaluate how we do this.Ž And then there is this nugget: Our criminal justice system is outdated,Ž he said. Its true. Currently, a relatively minor offense committed as a youngster can be a red ”ag for potential employers and dog someone into their adult years. The business community should be involved in “nding a better way that isnt one size “ts all. Leaders could “nd that advocating for more than tax or regulatory reform could create a better longrange workforce. That helps everyone. Thats the message Weatherford plans to share. Its not just me. The idea of a prosperity summit is not to think of creative ways for people who have achieved prosperity to receive more. Its about “nding ways to lift people out of poverty,Ž he said. We want to raise the level of awareness and engagement. And we need to get people who want to jump into the ring and help.Ž Joe Henderson has a 45year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. The column moved on website Florida Politics.

Monday, May 7, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. The town of Lake Placid has a beautiful mural showing an airboat with two passengers sitting in front and the driver behind seated in an elevated position. The mural is on the South Florida State College building and was sponsored by the Highlands Airboat Association identifying Glenn Curtiss as the builder of the “rst airboat in 1920. Who was he, where did he come from? He was an American aviation pioneer manufacturing airplanes and engines in Hammondsport, New York. He was well-known in Florida for bicycle racing and motorcycle racing for many years at Ormond Beach, Florida. He liked speed and held the worlds record for speed on a motorcycle at 137 mph earning the title the fastest man on earth.Ž While in Florida he liked to go hunting with bow and arrow in the Florida backwoods. As frog hunters knew and Curtiss discovered, getting around in the grassy and shallow Everglades was not easy. Using a motorboat was impossible with the seagrass and the muck. The Seminole Indians used canoes with long poles and they had to stand the whole time as they poled through the water. Some used what they called skiffs similar to canoes. Curtiss began thinking of a specially designed vessel that could maneuver through the marshes, the muck, the hallow areas and the grass. He designed a shallow-draft motorboat powered by an aircraft engine connected to an airplane propeller mounted on the stern. Curtiss airboat was enclosed so that a half-dozen people could ride comfortably, protected from the wind. Curtiss called his airboat ScooterŽ He could reach 50 mph through the grassy water of the Everglades. It bore no resemblance to the airboats of today. Todays airboat has a ”at bottom with an engine mounted on the back with the driver sitting in an elevated position and a cage to protect the propeller from objects ”ying into them. There is nothing below the water line to interfere with movement. Airboats are here to stay. Some environmentalists say they disturb the animals and birds. But they are useful for sightseeing, hunting, “shing, law enforcement and weed control. Not long after he built the “rst airboat, Curtiss was swept up in the Florida Land Boom of the 1920s.With his partner they became multimillionaires. Together they developed the cities of Miami Springs, OpaLocka and Hialeah. And they also started a city in Highlands County that didnt quite make it, but still exists. Can you name the town?

Burnett Elaine Levey can be reached at emlevey@ first airboat Elaine LeveyHISTORICALLY SPEAKING COURTESY PHOTOGlenn Curtiss and his rst airboat circa 1920. It is that time of year again when the roads clear up and the grocery store lines become manageable. When the number of out-of-state license plates are dwindling and the whisper of I guess the snowbirds are goneŽ lingers in restaurants and shopping plazas alike. As we approach summer, Highlands County empties of its six-month residents and things return to a slower paced existence. The way the highways clear up gives many Highlands County residents a feeling of peace, as though things are settling down and returning to normal. There is no doubt that life in Avon Park, Sebring and even Lake Placid changes when the snowbirds gather here between October and April. Things pick up. This means the attractions around the county are busier. Parks, shops, restaurants and more buzz with activity, and the economy in turn prospers. As many of you know, I am a server whenever I am not a writer. I work in a semi-busy restaurant with people I mostly like, and the difference between snowbird season (which most just shorten to seasonŽ) and the summer, when the Northern visitors have ”ed the heat, are immense. Not only does the restaurant become less busy, but shifts become fewer as well. It can be dif“cult, living without knowing how much you may or may not earn each shift, but it de“nitely teaches you to appreciate the snowbirds and the economic stimulation they bring with them. Because of the money the snowbirds bring with them, there are many things that happen „ more social activities that are available to residents and an upgrade in traf“c safety. It will be approximately “ve months until the snowbirds return, maybe more, if the sweltering heat and bad storms of last season continue. It is that time many of us will enjoy the quiet sleepiness of Highlands County. It will be nice to leave a few minutes later for work, since the highways wont be clogged up with everyone trying to go everywhere at the same time. And many will like being able to be seated in a restaurant without “rst having to wait for 10 minutes. I will be amongst them. For many, the leaving of the snowbirds means the leaving of family. It is easy to forget, for those of us who are not related to or are friends with any snowbirds, that they are more than bad traf“c and expanding housing developments. They are peoples siblings and aunts and grandparents. The snowbirds are many peoples friends, and many residents of Highlands County look forward to their return each year and revel in showing the changes that might have occurred in the summer. While it is exciting that the permanent residents will have their space back, there will also be the economic impact the snowbirds leaving will cause. It affects many residents of Highlands County. During the summer Im sure that in the back of my mind, I will be wondering when the snowbirds will return.Summer brings peace but also slows economy ColumnistANNSLEY BOHLMAN


A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 7, 2018 The magazine also has 16,000 Instagram followers and 4,600 Facebook friends. Hartt said tourism feeds 2,160 jobs in Highlands County, brings in $38.7 million to local restaurants, $24.5 million in shopping and $220 million in economic impact. Hartt gave that presentation Tuesday to the Board of County Commission. Commissioners then passed a proclamation noting that, nationwide, travel and tourism supports 15 million jobs and generates $15 trillion in economic impact. Highlands Countys portion of that, Hartt said, is owed at least in part to the $527,000 the TDC has budgeted this year for marketing and promotion. The return on that investment, she said, is $62.82 in visitor spending for each dollar of promotion. This years marketing budget taps unspent reserves. The typical annual revenue from the countys 2 percent local option tourist tax is $430,702. Its a small portion compared to the countys annual $2.25 million in property taxes and $4.57 million in county use and sales taxes. Visitors, Hartt said, pay $6.82 million in local sales and property taxes, through their purchases and short-term rentals. She said that saves each household in the county $168.50 per year in local taxes. Hartt used the cost of various personnel to the $6.82 million savings into perspective, although county government sales and property taxes do not necessarily pay for these peoples salaries. So, $6.82 million would pay for: € 233 teachers, who would teach 3,593 students. € 148 police of“cers. € 201 paid county “re“ghters. € Repairs on 10 miles of paved roads. However, if the county were to divert tourism dollars, with the result of just 10 percent fewer visitors per year, Hartt said the lost income would: € Put three local restaurants out of business. € Remove 23 teachers from schools, affecting 353 students. € Take 15 police of“cers off the streets. € Reduce paid “re“ghter crews by 20 “re“ghters. Commissioner Jim Brooks, county commission liaison to and board chair for the TDC, pointed out that TDC doesnt pay for teachers, police or “re“ghters. It pays to promote the county, in hopes people will come, rent lodging, stock up on food, shop for clothes and gifts, “ll gas tanks and leave with a smile. Casey (Hartt) has done a good job with TDC marketing,Ž Brooks said. Brooks remarked that he had made a recent trip to Flagler County and St. Johns County, and paid a lot higher percentage of his lodging in tourism taxes there.WEEKFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTOHeartland Toastmasters were at the Sebring Soda Festival, pictured left to right: Cathy Schreima, Jennifer Lewis-Gravelle, Patrick Hotchkiss and Linda Udall. said Friday she planned to pick out two or three to interview and schedule those as soon as possible. She continues to receive applications. County Commissioner Don Elwell asked her on Tuesday during the Board of County Commission meeting if Yuko was an applicant. Carmichael said no: Shes not leaving Orlando. Commissioner Ron Handley also asked if Carmichael had much luck with advertisement through the American Bar Association or Florida Bar Association. Carmichael said she had. Many were out-of-state. When Handley asked if she was optimistic, Carmichael said, Yes, I do feel positive.Ž Commission Vice Chair Jim Brooks asked if advertisement through the Florida Association of Counties had also helped. Yes, but most of those already have jobs with a county,Ž Carmichael said. Carmichael was hired less than a year ago, June 2017, as assistant county attorney at a rate of $80,000 per year. A month later, Macbeth asked the County Commission for a $33,000 raise: From $170,000 a year to approximately $203,000, plus $12,000 in bene“ts. Commissioners instead offered a $6,000 raise. Macbeth declined and vacated his of“ce in October. A search began for a new attorney, with Carmichael covering all the duties of a county attorney in the interim, but without the title or pay. She also applied for the county attorney position, and commissioners considered her among all candidates. They voted her in as county attorney after three of the five commissioners rated her as their first pick out of all applicants. Her salary is $125,000 per year. Meanwhile, the increased workload she was meant to help alleviate has reportedly kept her from allocating adequate time for an assistant search, according to statements shes given to commissioners at several recent meetings. With Yuko available to assist, Carmichael said Friday things are moving alongŽ with the search for a new assistant.LAWYERFROM PAGE 1 No complaints,Ž Sanders said during her first visit. Another gentleman waiting in the long line to pick up his food and wished to remain anonymous, said, I think the lines will die down as soon as the newness wears off.Ž By noon Friday, the restaurant was filled with patrons both picking up and waiting to order. The drivethrough line stretched around the building. With waiting times over 20 minutes for some, no one appeared frustrated or upset at the circumstances. Everyone appeared to take it all in stride. Long lines or not, one thing was clear. Sebring loves them some Popeyes! CHICKENFROM PAGE 1 the current one, Karl Hoglund, praised Morris. I am very excited for lieutenant Morris as he enters retirement. As a friend and co-worker for the past 25-years, Russell has always been someone I relied upon for help and guidance. I wish he and his family the best of luck in their future endeavors,Ž Hoglund said. In some cases involving domestic violence where the children might be removed, Morris said he might bring a long Lloyd, a Basset Hound, who would come out of the car and entertain the kids.Ž Technology has changed and one big change is of“cers can write reports in a vehicle and submit them electronically from that location, Morris said.RETIREFROM PAGE 1 ROBERT MILLER/STAFFJoe and Joann Albritton enjoy lunch at the new Sebring Popeyes location on Friday.

In the boys team title races, Orlandos First Academy won the Class 1A title with a score of 64 points, while Northside Christian scored 45 points. In Class 2A, Hallandale outlasted American Heritage 69 points to 59 for the title, while the Class 3A title was won by Miami Northwestern, with 80 points and Northeast was second. The boys Class 4A team race was one of the best, as Miami Columbus won with 58 points, while Miramar was second with 55 and Piper was third with 53. Jade Sinness doesnt settle for just being good. The Sebring High junior continues to push herself to improve with a relentless work ethic on the softball diamond and in the classroom. The multi-talented Sinness, who helped the Blue Streaks to a solid 18-7 season, batted a healthy .457, drove in a team-high 44 runs and the left-handed hitter blasted eight home runs. She played “rst base and also had the speed and the arm to make a difference in the out“eld. People often say that players get better in the offseason by putting in the extra work,Ž said Sebring softball coach and father Joe Sinness. Jade doesnt have time for an offseason, so she has to put the work in around the clock to make sure she continues to improve her game. This year it has paid off, she was selected Volleyball Player of the Year and Softball Player of the Year and still maintains straight As in her academics. Offensively this year Jade was a juggernaut and averaged one home run every 10 at-bats. She scored 34 runs and has earned the respect of most opposing teams and head coaches with her playing ability.Ž For her ability and accomplishments, Sinness has been selected, for the third consecutive year, as the Highlands NewsSun 2018 All-Highlands Softball Player of the Year. Im happy to win this award,Ž said Jade Sinness. I look forward to softball season and I work really hard to be a leader on and off the “eld. Im very thankful to be selected as the best player in the county. We had a good season and I had a lot of fun because there was very little drama because we got along so well.Ž Sinness, who has verbally committed to playing softball at Troy University, (Alabama) has one big goal she would like to accomplish her senior year and thats to win an elusive district championship. There are a bunch of us who will be seniors next year and we want to win a district title really bad,Ž Jade Sinness said. Thats one of my biggest goals and were going to work hard to make next season When Bassmaster tournament emcee Dave Mercer noted that Skeet Reese was making it look easyŽ during the mornings Bassmaster LIVE coverage, the veteran pro gave a simple explanation for the seemingly tranquil performance that pushed him into the lead with 45 pounds, 5 ounces on Day 2 of the Berkley Bassmaster Elite at Kentucky Lake presented by Abu Garcia. Its easy when you have 20 pounds in the boat,Ž Reese said. Indeed, the Elite angler got the party started early and quickly added 21-10 to his 23-11 from the “rst day. Noting that he was more dialed in on his pattern today, Reese had his limit by 8 a.m. and had caught his days weight by about 10. This early productivity bore consistent with the morning shad spawn that had bass rallying around key areas awash with reproducing bait“sh. The shad spawn was everything,Ž Reese said. Theyre feeding for the “rst four hours of the day, but the last two days weve had cloud cover, which probably extended the bite.Ž Reese caught his “sh on a mix that included a jerkbait, swimbait and squarebill crankbait. The latter did most of the work, but presentations had to be speci“c. The whole key is getting the bait to de”ect,Ž Reese said. If your baits not de”ecting off the bottom, for the most part, youre not getting the bites. The key is triggering these “sh. Its typical postspawn.Ž Once his morning action subsided, Reese struggled the rest of the day. With clearer conditions and more sun in the forecast, hes contemplating his options. I de“nitely have to change how I “sh in the afternoons because I pretty much drove the suck bus the last two afternoons,Ž Reese said. Reese said he “shed a lot of new water. Not everything produced, but he found himself in a position to experiment, so he took advantage of the opportunity. I was fortunate to have a good bag in the boat early. That allowed me to pre“sh and “ne-tune something and “nd that one little sweet spot,Ž Reese said. Obviously, I found one sweet spot yesterday where I hooked four or “ve “sh and I hooked four there today. If theres one spot like that, theres de“nitely a lot more like that out there. Fernando Alonso celebrated a winning start to his FIA World Endurance Championship career as he and teammates Sbastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima took a conclusive victory in todays eventful TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. In the “rst race of the 2018-19 WEC Super Season the No. 8 Toyota Gazoo Racing car led the vast majority of the race to head home the sister Toyota TS050 HYBRID of Mike Conway, Jos Mara Lpez and Kamui Kobayashi. Alonso crossed the “nish line 1.444 seconds ahead of Mike Conway in a formation “nish which was made all the more remarkable by the No. 7 Toyota TS050 HYBRID starting from the pit lane, a lap behind the entire “eld, after a post-qualifying technical infringement. For Alonso it was his “rst victory at Spa for almost 18 years and he became the “rst Spaniard to win a WEC race since Marc Gen triumphed for Audi, also at Spa, in 2012.

Calmly managing the moment, Reese unwrapped the cord and reeled the “sh boatside for a clean catch. What a train wreck; I couldnt make another turn on the reel handle,Ž Reese lamented. When you have a 5 1/2-pounder jumping in front of you and you cant turn the reel handle, its like ugh! Im glad I made it look smooth, because internally, I was a wreck.Ž Fred Roumbanis made a big second-round improvement by sacking up a limit that weighed 22-11 and moved him up from 27th place to second with a total weight of 40-10. In third place, Shaw Grigsby of Gainesvillerose from 11th place on Friday to third, just 1 ounce behind Roumbanis. His 20-13 limit of “ve bass gives him a two-day total of 40-9.

Jean-Eric Vergne, Roman Rusinov and Andrea Pizzitola triumphed after they took control of the race in the second hour. As G-Drive Racing is not a full-season entrant, the second-placed No.38 Jackie Chan DC Racing ORECA 07-Gibson of Ho-Pin Tung, Gabriel Aubry and Stphane Richelmi claimed the maximum points score. 2016 WEC champions Signatech Alpine Matmut took second position points to add to the one claimed yesterday for pole position. Olivier Pla, Stefan Mcke and Billy Johnson claimed their “rst WEC victory after a race-long battle with the No. 91 Porsche 911 RSR of Gianmaria Bruni and Richard Lietz. The race was effectively won with just 45-minutes to go when Pla was able to execute an audacious overtake on Richard Lietz exiting Raidillon. The No.91 Porsche fell back in the closing stages to fourth place as “rst the sister No.92 Porsche claimed second and then Davide Rigon swept through to take the “nal podium position in the No.71 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE Evo. The No. 67 Ford driven by Harry Tincknell crashed spectacularly in the second hour causing the second of three Safety Car periods. The British driver thankfully emerged from the Ford GT uninjured.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, May 7, 2018 Do you feel tired and drained of energy all the time? Maybe youve been trying to correct your thyroid hormone without luck. If youre adrenals are weak, youll have thyroid disease, as in hypothyroidism. Think about the past year or two. Have you been under pressure or a lot of stress? If work, school or relationships are causing you to suffer with constant deadlines, pressure or anguish (even mental anguish) then its possible that your exhaustion is from adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is the type of fatigue that occurs when your “ght or ”ight glandsŽ produce too much cortisol and aldosterone (think of the alarming stage), and then after a while, too little cortisol because theyre completely worn out. The antidote to adrenal fatigue is easier said than done, although a mental or physical vacation from the stress might help. One overlooked reason for low libido is the pregnenolone steal. How do you know for sure if this is what youre dealing with? There are three home tests you can do to see if you have adrenal fatigue. I know of a fourth as well, in my extended version of this column. If you want to read that, please sign up for my newsletter at and Ill email it to you next week. The Pupil Test Go into a dark room and shine a little ”ashlight towards your eyes. Your pupils respond to light and dark, and upon the light shining into your eyes, they should constrict (get smaller) immediately. The constriction happens within seconds if youre healthy, but if your pupils stay dilated for 10 to 20 seconds before constricting, or they never constrict, then you probably have adrenal fatigue. Thermoregulation Adrenal fatigue will absolutely compromise the feedback loop that controls your bodys temperature. You might feel cold, then feel suddenly hot. Your temperature may vary by two degrees from day to day. If you take your temperature three times in one day, and three more times the next day, then take the average for each day, it should not differ by more than a couple of degrees from day to day. If it does, your adrenals are taxed, and temperature stability is more dif“cult to achieve. This might explain the hot/cold problem you have. Dehydration Do you crave salty foods like potato chips? Its possible that this is due to adrenal fatigue and the resulting ”uctuations in aldosterone hormone. Your body cant utilize ”uid effectively, or properly regulate sodium and potassium levels, which causes mild dehydration, even though you could be drinking plenty of water. This is very common for people who have chronic fatigue, or who have been seriously ill for a long time. Blood Pressure Response Youll be taking your blood pressure twice for this test. Make sure youve drank enough water the day you test. Lie down in bed and rest for “ve minutes, then take your blood pressure. Then get up and take your blood pressure immediately (while standing up). The top number (systolic) should go up by about 8 to 10 points. If it doesnt, its a clue that your adrenals are overworked.

But the latest drug raising red flags is not part of the opioid family at the center of the nations drug epidemic. Its a 25-yearold generic pill long seen as a low risk way to treat seizures, nerve pain and other ailments. The drug, called gabapentin, is one of the most prescribed medications in the U.S., ranking ninth over the last year, according to prescription tracker GoodRx. Researchers attribute the recent surge to tighter restrictions on opioid painkillers, which have left doctors searching for alternatives for their patients. Those same forces are changing the drugs that Americans abuse, according to experts. Were basically squeezing people into other drugs because the prescription opioids are becoming a lot harder to get,Ž said Dr. Richard Dart, who tracks drug abuse through a national data network owned Drug epidemic ensnares 25-year-old pill for nerve painBy MATTHEW PERRONEAP HEALTH WRITER AP PHOTOThis Thursday, May 3 photo shows bottles of gabapentin at Daniels Pharmacy in San Francisco.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 7, 2018 The beautiful restored Kissimmee River winds its way through the natural beauty of central Floridas lush wetland landscapes, ”ushed with colorful waterfowl, alligators hunkered down along the banks, turtles perched on snags along the rivers edge, and busy insects clustered on glorious blooming plants. The Kissimmee Rivers pathway south begins at the Chain of Lakes in the greater Orlando area and carves its way through wetlands and cattle country to discharge into the northern shores of Lake Okeechobee at Okee-tantie County Park on Highway 78. In the 1960s, the river was channelized into the C-38 canal by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for ”ood protection for the Orlando communities. Although successful for ”ood control, the channelization drained wetland habitats and funneled nutrient-rich waters into Lake Okeechobee,causing an ecological disaster. Now, the Kissimmee River is in the “nal phase of restoration with plans for completion in 2020. Loisa Kerwin, director of Florida Atlantic Universitys Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Riverwoods Field Lab in Cornwell, hosted a Yoga Retreat on the river on April 28. Yoga participants from Highlands, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and Broward counties attended the retreat, which included a boat trip exploring the restored Kissimmee River, as well as a restorative yoga session. U.S. Coast Guard Masters Capt. Mark Compeau piloted the pontoon boat through the restored Kissimmee River. It was beautiful cruise along the river, and we were able to get off on the brilliant white sand of the restored sandbars. Guests collected empty Apple Snail shells and posed in the yoga Tree Pose,Ž a challenge to execute in shifting sand, but we did it! We meandered slowly through the beautiful cypress swamps and then returned to Riverwoods for the next stage of our yoga retreat. We rolled out our mats to focus on Awakening Our Bodies through Chakra yoga poses and mantras. We performed yoga poses to awaken the seven Chakra vortices (centers of energy in the body) that move from the grounding energy of the “rst Root Chakra, located at the bottom of the spine, and ”owing upward to the crown of the head. For some of the Chakra poses, we worked in teams to lengthen the body and explore trustŽ (the Heart Chakra). We awakened all seven Chakras through the top of the head, transmitting Earth energy through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual vortices to the seventh Crown Chakra to reach enlightenment.Ž Offering her thoughts on the yoga retreat, newspaper editor Katrina Elsken shared these thoughtful words, Anything that bene“ts Lake Okeechobee, bene“ts all the ecosystems in the Everglades.Ž Loisa Kerwin, who hosted the event, expressed words of appreciation saying, Everyone said they enjoyed the Yoga retreat. I am very happy to share the success of the Kissimmee River Restoration with guests from all over! After 20 years of research, restoration and a cost of nearly $1 billion, the Kissimmee River Restoration Project is restoring ”ow to 44 miles of the original, meandering river, rehydrating over 20,000 acres and 40 square miles of ”oodplain wetlands to recreate habitat for wildlife, wading birds, “sh, amphibians, reptiles and aquatic invertebrates. The restored wetlands provide critical water storage, recharge the aquifer, prevent future ”ooding, and “lter the nutrient rich waters that ”ow into Lake Okeechobee. Guests were able to enjoy the incredible beauty of the restored Kissimmee River. We synchronized our energies, inhaled the pure fresh air, cleansed our mind with native beauty, renewed our spirit, and experienced the true essence of yoga at the Riverwoods Field Lab on the Kissimmee River.

Monday, May 7, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 What we know and dont know about artificial sweetenersI hope Im not the only one to “nd the recent news about arti“cial sweeteners more than just a little confusing. Heres my snapshot on this topic: Some sweeteners are nutritiveŽ meaning they provide calories. (Calories are units of energy that power our brains, muscles and the rest of our body machinery.) Sugar alcohols like sorbitol and mannitol are known as nutritive sweeteners, for example. Non-nutritiveŽ (aka arti“cialŽ) sweeteners are calorie-free because our bodies do not digest them for energy. They basically pass unchanged through our digestive tracts from the mouth (where we perceive their sweet taste) to the other end. These substances are several hundreds to several thousands of times sweeter than sugar; thus these high intensity sweeteners are used in teeny tiny amounts. Acesulfame-K, aspartame, neotame, saccharin, sucralose and tagatose are non-nutritive sweeteners currently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. A plethora of scienti“c studies show that these sweetening agents are safe for humans. Some recent animal studies, however, may indicate we may not have the entire storyƒyet. Scientists at Marquette University, for example, compared the effects of high amounts of sugar and the sweeteners aspartame and acesulfame on mice that are genetically prone to get diabetes. They found that large amounts of any of these substances increased the risks for these animals to become obese and develop diabetes. Whats going on? We already know that excessive amounts of sugar can make us fat and contribute to conditions like diabetes and heart disease. And sweeteners can certainly help us cut back on added sugar and excess calories. Yet some research suggests that when we consume a sweet taste without its usual calories, the bodys ability to regulate our appetites could be getting confused. (Perhaps that is why one person I know who will remain anonymous feels like eating M&Ms while drinking a diet Coke.) Another area still being explored is our microbiome „ the good and bad bacteria that reside in our lower intestines. These bugs feed on what comes down the track including dietary “ber and perhaps, according to some recent studies, non-nutritive sweeteners. When researchers at Case Western University, for example, fed large amounts of sucralose (Splenda) to rats with a gut disorder known as Crohns disease, their symptoms got worse. The sweetener had no effect on normal mice. How then, do these undigested sweeteners affect bacteria in our human guts? Answer: We dont know. We do know that our bodies have the machinery to handle moderate amounts of sugar and arti“cial sweeteners. In excess, according to one researcher from these latest studies, both may have negative effects. Organizations like the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association tell us to consume sugar as well as non-nutritive sweeteners judiciously.Ž Ill go with that. „„„ (Barbara Quinn is a registered dietitian and certi“ed diabetes educator af“liated with Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Florida prisons are cutting mental health, substance abuse and re-entry programs to help make up for a $50 million shortfall in its health care and pharmaceuticals budgets. Even prison chaplains and librarians will feel the sting for what the Department of Corrections blames on underfunding in the budget the Legislature approved in March. First and foremost, its our responsibility to ensure the security of individuals in our custody and to make certain their human and constitutional rights are upheld while incarcerated. Health care is one of these constitutional responsibilities,Ž Corrections Secretary Julie Jones said in a press release. Weve unfortunately had to make some very dif“cult decisions.Ž The department said it will need $28 million more for health care and another $22 million for pharmaceuticals. It said the shortfalls come on top of $24.9 million in operational cuts in the budget that takes effect July 1. The department will cut contracts with programs and services by $30 million to help make up for the de“cit. The other $20 million will come from further operational cuts. This is going to make a bad situation worse, because we need to be doing more to provide transitioning services for inmates and getting them ready to be successful when they leave state prison,Ž said Democratic Rep. David Richardson, one of the Legislatures prison experts. If we just hand an inmate $50 and open the gates and say Good luck, thats not much of a transition program. Weve got to be doing a lot more.Ž Republican Gov. Rick Scotts of“ce pointed out that he had recommended a $169 million increase in the Department of Corrections budget. The annual budget the Florida Legislature passed this year was lower than the governors recommended budget, which has resulted in these temporary funding shortfalls. Governor Scott is con“dent that Secretary Jones will work with her stakeholders, and members of the Legislature, to ensure that this issue is temporary, resolved quickly and handled appropriately,Ž Scott spokesman McKinley Lewis said. The governor or Legislature would have to call a special session to increase the budget, or Scott would have to declare the situation an emergency, a prospect Richardson said he doubts will happen as Scott focuses on a run for U.S. Senate.Florida prisons to cut programs due to health care cost hikeASSOCIATED PRESS Hours: 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. € Monday-Friday 8TH YEAR IN BUSINESS IN SEBRINGPH# 863-385-5689 € FAX RX 863-582-9355 3200 US Hwy 27 S., Suite 103 € side entranceAAA Direct Discount SYMBICORT....... 160MCG/4.5MCG B......360 DOSES) ....... $167.00 DALIRESP .....................500MCG B .........90 TABS............. $218.00 PROVENTIL FHA ............100MCG G .........800 DOSES ....... $153.00 SPIRIVA ........................18MCG G ...........90 CAPS ............. $147.00 ANORO ELLIPTA.....55MCG/22MCG B .....90 DOSES ........... $325.00 XARELTO .......................20MG B .............84 TABS............. $259.00 ELIQUIS .........................2.5/5MG B ........180 TABS ........... $284.00 ENTRESTO..............24MG/26MG B .........168 TABS ......... $793.95 PREMARIN ....................0.625 .................84 TABS ........... $117.66PREMARIN ...................0.3MG B .............84 TABS ........... $112.00No Control over availability and prices subject to change VIAGRA100mg BRAND$1000a pillVIAGRAGENERIC 100mg 40 tabs $12900CIALIS20mg BRAND$1900a pill 24/36CIALISGENERIC 20mg 20 tabs $11000adno=3575184 The Doctors ofHEALING THE HEARTLAND FOR OVER 30 YEARS!863-453-5777AVON PARK CHIROPRACTIC CLINICCOMPASSIONDR.

While prescriptions for opioids like Vicodin and Oxycontin have been falling since 2012, health regulators have seen increased overdoses with unexpected medications, including the over-the-counter diarrhea drug Imodium. The Food and Drug Administration is now studying patterns of prescribing and illicit use of gabapentin and will soon share its findings, said Commissioner Scott Gottlieb. One of the lessons from this whole opioid crisis is that we probably were too slow to act where we saw problems emerging and we waited for more definitive conclusions,Ž Gottlieb said. I dont want to be sitting here five or 10 years from now lamenting that we didnt take more aggressive action.Ž Many doctors arent aware of gabapentins potential for abuse, particularly among those with a history of misusing drugs, said Rachel Vickers Smith of the University of Louisville. People tracked in her research describe gabapentin as a cheap highŽ that is almost always available.Ž They report mixing the drug with opioids, marijuana and cocaine to enhance the high, with effects ranging from increased energyŽ to a mellowŽ numbness. Medical journal articles estimate that between 15 and 25 percent of opioid abusers also use gabapentin. And emerging research suggests combining gabapentin and opioids heightens the overdose risks. Gabapentin, on the market since 1993, has long been considered nonaddictive and is not tracked as closely as riskier drugs like opioids. But calls to U.S. poison control centers show a stark rise in abuse and overdoses.DRUGFROM PAGE Barbara Ross, ARNP-C Michael J.

The News Wire Monday, May 7, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER HAWAII VOLCANO DESTROYS 21 HOMES, SPEWS LAVA 200 FEET UPWARDS ee page 2 SOUTH FLA. „ The Zika scare of 2016 could lead to a yellow fever panic this year if South Florida residents let down their guard when it comes to protecting themselves from diseasecarrying mosquitoes. There hasnt been a yellow fever outbreak in the United States in more than 100 years, but state health of“cials are concerned that a large outbreak in Brazil and others in South and Central America could lead to infected travelers bringing the disease to South Florida, which has the right mosquitoes and climate for it to spread. The disease is deadlier than the Zika virus. Zika raised alarms because many infected pregnant women gave birth to infants having microcephaly, a condition that causes abnormally small heads and developmental defects. Yellow fever can kill. Brazil reported 1,131 cases and 338 deaths attributable to yellow fever from July to March. Most people infected with yellow fever will get symptoms so minor they wont realize they have been infected. Even for those who do notice, the symptoms such as fever, chills and headaches dont make it stand out from many other illnesses. But for about 15 percent of the infected, the initial symptoms pass and then come back with a vengeance within a day, causing internal bleeding and jaundice „ the yellowing of the skin that gives the fever its name „ the failure of the liver and other organs. Of those, up to half die, usually within a week or two. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned travelers in March not to go to yellow fever hotspots in Brazil unless they were vaccinated. South Florida of“cials hope the stepped-up mosquito control efforts already in effect to curb Zika will help contain any potential yellow fever outbreak. Yellow fever and Zika are carried by the same Aedes aegypti mosquito, which can also transmit dengue and chikungunya. If yellow fever is introduced into South Florida, and I suppose it will be, youre not going to see the same explosive outbreak we did with Zika,Ž said Justin Stoler, an assistant professor of geography at the University of Miami who has done global health research with a focus on mosquito-borne illnesses. There hasnt been prior exposure, but weve kept mosquito populations down, which is a good thing.Ž Broward County began its “rst truck spraying of the year April 30 to kill infant mosquitoes that are expected to multiply as the regions heavy rains increase, said Anh Ton, who oversees Browards mosquito control.

Grisham adds that the “rst lady will concentrate on the range of issues children face growing up and will not tailor the initiative to a single topic. Mrs. Trump has a 12-year-old son, Barron, and has expressed her interest in children through numerous visits to hospitals and schools.

Giuliani, who joined the presidents legal team two weeks ago, also said that if Trump does agree to be questioned, he might invoke his Fifth Amendment right to guard against selfincrimination by refusing to respond to some questions. Giuliani, on ABCs This Week,Ž said Trump was under no obligation to obey a subpoena. We dont have to complyŽ with one, he said. Hes the president of the United States,Ž Giuliani said. We can assert the same privilege that other presidents have.Ž He was referring to President Bill Clintons choice to resist a subpoena in connection with the Monica Lewinsky investigation, though Clinton ultimately agreed to submit to questioning.

Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said an Italian team conducted extensive studies with ground-penetrating radar that showed the tomb did not contain any hidden, man-made blocking walls as was earlier suspected. Francesco Porcelli of the Polytechnic University of Turin presented the “ndings at an international conference in Cairo. Our work shows in a conclusive manner that there are no hidden chambers, no corridors adjacent to Tutankhamuns tomb,Ž Porcelli said, As you know there was a theory that argued the possible existence of these chambers but unfortunately our work is not supporting this theory.Ž In 2015, British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves proposed, after analysis of high-de“nition laser scans, that queen Nefertitis tomb could be concealed behind wall paintings in the famed boy Giuliani says Trump wouldnt have to obey a Mueller subpoena, could take the 5thEgypt says no hidden rooms in King Tuts tomb after allBy LAURA KINGTRIBUNE WASHINGTON BUREAUBy MOHAMMED WAGDYTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS TOMB | 4 GIULIANI | 4 FEVER | 4 AP FILE PHOTO Yellow fever threatens South Fla. after Zika scare MELANIA TRUMP AP FILE PHOTOIn this April1, 2016 le photo, radar-scanning experts scan a wall in King Tutankhamuns burial chamber in the Valley of the Kings, Luxor, Egypt.

Some of the more than 1,700 people who evacuated prepared for the possibility they may not return for quite some time. Hawaii of“cials said the decimated homes were in the Leilani Estates subdivision, where molten rock, toxic gas and steam have been bursting through openings in the ground created by the volcano. Of“cials updated the number of lost homes after an aerial survey of the subdivision. That number could change,Ž Hawaii County spokeswoman Janet Snyder said. This is heartbreaking.Ž Amber Makuakane, 37, a teacher and single mother of two, said her three-bedroom house in Leilani Estates was destroyed by lava. The dwelling was across from a “ssure that opened Friday, when there was some steam rising from all parts of the yard, but everything looked “ne,Ž Makuakane said. On Saturday morning, she received alerts from her security system that motion sensors throughout the house had been triggered. She later con“rmed that lava had covered her property. They dont really understand,Ž she said about her children. My son keeps asking me, Mommy when are we going to go home?Ž Makuakane grew up in the area and lived in her house for nine years. Her parents also live in Leilani Estates. The volcano and the lava „ its always been a part of my life,Ž she said. Its devastating ... but Ive come to terms with it.Ž There was no indication when the lave might stop or how far it might spread. Theres more magma in the system to be erupted. As long as that supply is there, the eruption will continue,Ž U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist Wendy Stovall said. Traditional Hawaiian beliefs say it depends on Pele, the volcano goddess who is said to reside in Kilauea. You have to ask Pele,Ž Steve Clapper said when asked whether he had any idea when hed return to his Leilani Estates home. Clapper had to put his ailing 88-year-old mother into a car and leave shortly after hearing an ominous rumbling behind the house. The California native was sanguine as he assessed his situation. Clapper said as he started his day at a nearby evacuation shelter. Peles the boss, you know.Ž Cherie McArthur wondered what would become of her macadamia nut farm in Lanipuna Gardens, another evacuated neighborhood near Leilani Estates. One of the years “rst harvests had been planned for this weekend. If we lose our farm, we dont know where were going to go. You lose your income and you lose your home at the same time,Ž said McArthur, whos had the farm for about 20 years. All you can do is pray and hope and try to get all the information you can.Ž About 240 people and 90 pets spent Saturday night at shelters, the American Red Cross said. Of“cials let some residents return brie”y Sunday to fetch pets, medicine and documents. The number of lava-venting “ssures in the neighborhood grew overnight from eight to as many as 10, Stovall said, though some have quieted at various points. Regardless, USGS scientists expect “ssures to keep spewing. The lava could eventually be channeled to one powerful vent while others go dormant, as has happened in some previous Hawaii eruptions, Stovall said. Kilauea, one of the worlds most active volcanoes, has been erupting continuously since 1983. The USGSs Hawaiian Volcano Observatory issued a notice in mid-April that there were signs of pressure building in underground magma, and a new vent could form on the cone or along whats known as the East Rift Zone. Leilani Estates sits along the zone The crater ”oor began to collapse Monday, triggering earthquakes and pushing lava into new underground chambers that carried it toward Leilani Estates and nearby communities. A magnitude-6.9 earthquake „ Hawaiis largest in more than 40 years „ hit the area Friday.Volcano destroys 21 homes, spews lava 200 feet upwardBy CALEB JONES, JENNIFER PELTZ and SOPHIA YANASSOCIATED PRESS U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY VIA APIn this photo from Saturday, a new ssure erupts in Leilani Estates in Pahoa, Hawaii.

(AP) „ Of“cials in western Montana are bracing for ”ooding that could be the worst in more than 40 years. Missoula County deputy emergency services coordinator Ken Parks said Sunday that the Clark Fork River by Tuesday could approach major ”ood stage for the “rst time since 1975. Parks says about 40 households in Missoulas Orchard Homes area already have experienced some ”ooding. Residents were being noti“ed that they could be asked to evacuate in coming days. The National Weather Service forecasts that the Clark Fork will crest on Friday. High water also was expected on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot and Clearwater Rivers and around Seeley Lake. Warm weather has been melting deep mountain snows and swelling rivers and creeks. Thunderstorms in coming days threaten to make matters worse. Park says no injuries have yet been reported. LAS VEGAS (AP) „ Ride-hailing service Lyft is partnering with an automotive technology company to deploy a ”eet of 30 self-driving cars to the streets of Las Vegas this summer. Lyft and Aptiv will run the self-driving BMWs between the same predetermined sites that the companies used during a successful demonstration at the International Consumer Electronics Show in January, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday. The BMW 5 Series cars will navigate passengers between the Las Vegas Convention Center and various resorts on the Strip. Las Vegas is working with Aptiv to extend the routes into downtown, said Michael Sherwood, the citys director of technology and innovation. The companies are planning astart date for July or August, Sherwood said. The routes are also subject to change. Customers will be able to hail a self-driving BMW like any other ride through the Lyft app. This is an important next step for Aptiv on our path to commercialization for Automated Mobility on Demand in a thoughtful, prudent and safe manner,Ž said Glen De Vos, Aptivs chief technology of“cer. Safety remains our No. 1 priority, and we are going to deploy this ”eet slowly and safely, gathering data and insights as we go.Ž A trained operator will be in each car, De Vos said in the statement.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) „ A bomb blast inside a mosque in eastern Afghanistan that was being used as a voter registration center killed at least 14 people and wounded 33, of“cials said on Sunday. Talib Mangal, spokesman for the provincial governor in Khost, said that there was one female among those killed in the attack. The blast happened while people were busy with prayers, meanwhile in other part of the mosque people had gathered to get their voter registration cards for the election,Ž he added. Afghanistan plans to hold elections in October, the “rst since 2014. Habib Shah Ansari, the provincial head of public health, also con“rmed the toll from the attack in the city of Khost, the capital of the province of the same name. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid denied the groups involvement. We reject any kind of involvement in this incident,Ž he said. Both the Taliban and a local af“liate of the Islamic State group reject democratic elections and have targeted them in the past. IS is not known to have a presence in Khost, but has expanded its footprint into other areas in recent years. Last month, an Islamic State suicide bomber attacked a voter registration center in Kabul, killing 60 people and wounding at least 130 others. The Taliban and IS have launched a relentless wave of attacks since the start of the year, killing scores of civilians in the capital, Kabul, and elsewhere. Afghan security forces have struggled to combat the groups since the U.S. and NATO concluded their combat mission at the end of 2014, switching to a counterterrorism and support role. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, a vehicle carrying shopkeepers on their way to a market struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistans northern Faryab province, killing seven of them. Police spokesman Karim Yuresh said another civilian was wounded in Sundays attack, in an area where both the Taliban and IS are active. In the eastern Paktia province, a car bomb killed two people and wounded another three. Abdullah Hsart, the provincial governors spokesman, said the attack late Saturday targeted Hazart Mohammad Rodwal, a district chief, who was among the wounded. The Taliban claimed the attack.Bombing at mosque in Afghanistan kills 14, wounds 332 found dead in quake-hit Polish coal mine; 3 still missing 40 killed in armed bandit attack in northwest NigeriaWARSAW, Poland (AP) „ Polish rescue workers on Sunday found the bodies of two miners after an earthquake hit a coal mine in southern Poland. Three other miners remain missing some 2,950 feet below ground since the quake hit Saturday morning in the mine, located in the town of Jastrzebie-Zdroj, close to Polands border with the Czech Republic. The head of the Jastrzebie Coal Company, Daniel Ozon, said a doctor con“rmed the two fatalities and identi“cation of the victims was underway. The “rst victim, initially identi“ed by Ozon as a 38-year-old man, had been trapped under some metal. He said the identi“cation still needed to be con“rmed by DNA tests. The second miner was found a few hours later, trapped in the rubble, he added. MAIDGURI, Nigeria (AP) „ Of“cials and residents say at least 40 have been killed by armed bandits who attacked a Nigerian village in the countrys northwest Kaduna state. Police Inspector General Ibrahim Idris con“rmed the bandits invaded Gwaska Saturday, “ghting local defense forces protecting the community of about 3,000 people. He said 200 policemen and 10 patrol vehicles were deployed to the scene. A resident who helped “ght the bandits said at least 40 people were killed and the toll will likely climb. He spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons. He said the attackers were from Zamfara state, and that they shot at children and torched houses as residents ”ed. The attack came about a week after other unidenti“ed gunmen attacked a nearby village in the Birnin Gwari area. | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDMore than 200 workers were involved in the rescue operation. Ozon said emergency workers were pumping air into the affected area to lower the level of methane gas before they can safely move ahead. After the quake hit, four miners were rescued quickly but seven others went missing. Two of the missing were later found alive and have been hospitalized. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and President Andrzej Duda travelled to the town, visiting the hospitalized miners and meeting with their families and some of the rescuers. Duda extended his condolences to the victims families. Authorities have launched an investigation into the accident. Polands State Mining Authority said the temblor had a magnitude of 3.4, while the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre pegged it at 4.3. TVN24 said the quake was also felt on the surface and shook some houses. Maybe youve had multiple tests, only to nd out no one has any idea what you have.

DENVER (AP) „ A Colorado woman has been cited by police after a container of what appeared to be urine blew up as she was heating it up in a microwave at a 7-Eleven. Police say the incident occurred in the convenience store chains Aurora location last week when the clerk heard a loud bang and saw 26-year-old Angelique Sanchez take a white plastic bottle out of the microwave. A police report says when confronted by the clerk, Sanchez wiped a yellow liquid that smelled like urine onto the floor and left. Police located Sanchez at a nearby clinic where she had planned to take a urinalysis test for a potential employer. The Denver woman was issued a summons for damaged property. She could not be reached for comment.ODD NEWS Woman cited after microwave blows up urine sampleFROM PAGE ONE kings burial chamber. The discovery ignited massive interest, with of“cials “rst rushing to support the theory but then later distancing themselves and ultimately rejecting it. The ministry says two previous scans by Japanese and American scientists had proved inconclusive, but insists this latest ground-penetrating radar data closes the lid on the tomb having such hidden secrets. It is concluded, with a very high degree of con“dence, said Dr. Porcelli, the hypothesis concerning the existence of hidden chambers or corridors adjacent to Tutankhamuns tomb is not supported by the GPR data,Ž it said in its statement. The ministry has been gradually moving King Tuts belongings to a new museum outside Cairo near the Giza Pyramids to undergo restoration before they are put on display. The transfer of the priceless belongings has become a particularly sensitive issue; In 2014 the beard attached to the ancient Egyptian monarchs golden mask was accidentally knocked off and hastily reattached with an epoxy glue compound, sparking uproar among archaeologists. The fourth International Tutankhamun Conference in Cairo where Porcelli presented the “ndings, the most extensive radar survey of the site to date, was attended by a wide range of Egyptologists and archaeologists from the world over. During the conference, Antiquities Minister Khaled alAnani said that the “rst phase of the new museum, including King Tuts halls, will be completed by the end of this year but the date for the museums soft openingŽ has yet to be decided. The museum currently hosts more than 43,200 artifacts of which over 4,500 belong to King Tut alone, and its grand opening is planned for 2022.TOMBFROM PAGE 1 unexpected disclosures and changing stories about the presidents involvement in a preelection hush-money payout to the porn actress, was somewhat more circumspect in addressing the investigation of Russias election interference and possible Trump campaign complicity. Questions over whether special counsel Robert Mueller might seek to compel Trump to testify before a grand jury intensi“ed last week after the Washington Post reported that Mueller had broached the possibility this spring, in talks with the presidents lawyers about whether Trump would agree to an interview with investigators. A subpoena confrontation could substantially raise the constitutional stakes related to Trumps dealings with „ and his possible attempts at obstruction of „ the Russia investigation, which the president has repeatedly termed a witch hunt.Ž Trump reiterated last week he would love toŽ sit and answer Muellers questions. But he said he would do so only if he were convinced that investigators were treating him fairly. Giuliani said he would strongly advise against such an in-person encounter, however. Im going to walk him into a prosecution for perjury like Martha Stewart?Ž he asked rhetorically, alluding to the 2004 conviction of the entrepreneur on charges of obstruction and lying to investigators in connection with an insider-trading case. The challenges faced by Trump in connection with the Russia investigation are being steadily ampli“ed by the separate-butparallel Stormy Daniels case. Trumps former legal “xer, Michael Cohen, faces a criminal investigation after having acknowledged making a $130,000 payment to her shortly before the 2016 election that was intended to buy her silence about an alleged tryst with Trump more than a decade ago. Giuliani and Trump each have offered inconsistent and contradictory explanations about when and whether the president was aware of the payment, and the underlying motives for the agreement with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Giuliani offered yet another glimpse into the netherworld of what the presidents surrogates have characterized as nuisance claims against Trump. In the ABC interview, Giuliani casually acknowledged that Cohen could have made payoffs to other women under circumstances similar to those surrounding Daniels allegations. I have no knowledge of that,Ž said Giuliani. But I would think if it was necessary, yes.Ž Seeking to explain why the president would authorize Cohen to make payments at his own discretion, without Trumps knowledge, Giuliani suggested that sums such as the amount paid to Daniels were inconsequential to Trump as a way of brushing false accusations aside. I know this sounds funny to people there at home „ I never thought $130,000 was a real payment,Ž he told ABC. People dont go away for $130,000 with a meritorious claim.Ž Appearing on the same program, Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti said he was ”abbergasted by Giulianis freewheeling round of television appearances on Trumps behalf, including the one Sunday just before his own, in which Giuliani said he did not know when Trump became aware of the Daniels payment. Last week, Giuliani, supported by Trump, said the president had reimbursed Cohen. The president subsequently said Giuliani did not have the facts straight, but Trump did not specify what was wrong with Giulianis account or what the truth is. Avenatti said Giuliani now expects the American people to believe that he doesnt really know the facts „ this guys all over the map over the last 72 hours on some very simple facts that should be very straightforward,Ž They are making it up as they go along,Ž he said. They dont know what to say because theyve lost track of the truth.Ž On another Sunday show, presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway defended Trumps credibility when she was asked about the presidents documented falsehoods. The president doesnt lie,Ž she said on CNNs State of the Union.Ž Giuliani, in the ABC interview, posited that Trumps comments to the news media, and by extension to the public, were irrelevant to the legalities of the case. I dont know when the president learned about it,Ž he said, referring to the payment to Daniels. These are not facts that matter to me as a lawyer. Those dont amount to anything, whats said to the press „ thats political.ŽGIULIANIFROM PAGE 1ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) „ A federal judge is asking skeptical questions about Special Counsel Robert Muellers authority to bring charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on tax and bank fraud charges. Manaforts lawyers argued at a hearing Friday in Alexandria, Virginia, that the charges are far a“eld from Muellers mandate to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether any collusion occurred. The Virginia indictment alleges Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars he earned advising pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine from the Internal Revenue Service, all occurring years before Donald Trump ran for president. Judge T.S. Ellis III suggested the real reason Mueller is pursuing Manafort is to pressure him to singŽ against Trump. Ellis withheld ruling on dismissal of the indictment. Manafort is also charged in the District of Columbia.JUDGE QUESTIONS MANAFORT CHARGES AT HEARING FBI lawyer who texted about Trump has left the bureau Light earthquake shakes Gulf of Mexico near LA Dog fatally mauls baby in Los Angeles homeWASHINGTON (AP) „ An FBI lawyer who made headlines for exchanging derogatory text messages about President Donald Trump has left the bureau. Thats according to a person familiar with the situation, who said Lisa Page voluntarily resigned on Friday and is taking a new job. Text messages between Page and Peter Strzok, an FBI agent who was assigned to special counsel Robert Muellers investigation, show them expressing negative views about Trump and referring to him in derogatory ways. Strzok was reassigned from the special counsel team after the text messages were brought to Muellers attention. Page had already left the Mueller team. Republican lawmakers have pointed to the texts as evidence of partisan bias at the FBI. NEW ORLEANS (AP) „ A light earthquake has shaken the Gulf of Mexico south of the Louisiana coast. The United State Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.6 struck around noon Sunday. The quake happened about 160 miles southeast of New Orleans and 120 miles southeast of Grand Isle. The National Weather Service says theres no threat of a tsunami. There was no immediate report of damage or injuries. LOS ANGELES (AP) „ An infant has been killed after at least one dog mauled her in a Los Angeles home when her gr andmother stepped away to get a bottle. Los Angeles police say the mauling happened Saturday afternoon in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood. The nearly 4-month-old baby girl died at a hospital. Animal control of“cers took custody of a Rottweiler, a Labrador and a terrier at the home because they dont know whether just one or more of them attacked. Los Angeles police Capt. Lillian Carranza said the family is extremely distraught and that next Sunday would have been the “rst Mothers Day for the infants mom. She says the girls grandmother was babysitting and had brie”y stepped away to get a bottle when the attack happened. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONmosquitoes. Aedes aegypti doesnt travel far from where it breeds. The mosquito, one of more than 40 types in South Florida, gravitates to urban areas and can breed in as little as a bottle cap full of standing water. It bites during the daytime and not just at dusk and dawn, of“cials said. Yellow fever is a rare disease in the United States, with only one reported case between 2004 and 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Outbreaks killed thousands in Philadelphia in 1793, in Memphis, Tenn., in 1878 and in New Orleans throughout the 19th century, and in other places. It wasnt until 1900 that the Yellow Fever Commission formed by the U.S. military proved that the disease was spread by mosquitoes, which led to practices such as fumigation and the covering of open water cisterns where the mosquitoes bred. The last U.S. outbreak occurred in New Orleans in 1905. Most of the reported Zika cases came from travel abroad, especially in Brazil where there was a large outbreak, but local transmissions also surfaced in 2016: 287 cases in Miami-Dade, “ve in Palm Beach and one in Broward, according to the state health department. The Zika virus is still out there. Although there is no vaccine for Zika, the number of cases has reduced signi“cantly dramatically in the past two years as South Florida counties increased mosquito control and more people were protected because of previous exposure to the virus. Florida recorded 1,469 Zika cases in 2016, with 298 infected locally. The state numbers dropped to 265 cases in 2017, with only two locally transmitted. There have only been 30 cases and no local transmissions so far this year. South Florida is susceptible to such diseases not only because of its climate and mosquitoes, but also because it is a major hub attracting visitors from throughout the Americas for education, tourism, business and commerce, said Bindu S. Mayi, an associate professor of microbiology at Nova Southeastern University. Thats why a World Health Organization report in April identi“ed Miami as one of the global cities susceptible to the spread of yellow fever because the United States doesnt require people arriving from abroad to be vaccinated against the disease. Infected travelers arriving in South Florida could be bitten by mosquitoes here, which could then spread the disease through bites to other people. It was inevitable we would get these diseases,Ž Mayi said. Its remarkable how well we responded.Ž The proliferation of a disease can be worse if it is new to an area, because there is no natural immunity, she said. These ”are-ups happen, especially when you have a large chunk of population that has never seen this virus,Ž Mayi said. There is nothing initially stopping the body from hosting the virus.Ž Most people in the U.S. havent been vaccinated for yellow fever because the disease is so uncommon. With the recent Brazil outbreak and efforts there to vaccinate large portions of the population, the available supply in the U.S. is limited and the sole U.S. manufacturer doesnt expect to have more available until years end. The vaccine is recommended for people traveling to areas known to have yellow fever. It is not recommended for everyone. The vaccine could cause worse problems for infants under 9 months old, adults older than 60 and people with compromised immune systems. A factor that could limit South Floridas exposure to yellow fever from travelers is the size of the outbreak in Brazil. The number of cases there in recent years has been a few thousand, while Zika infected hundreds of thousands there. That means theres a much smaller pool of people with the potential for bringing the virus to the U.S., said Larry Bush, an af“liate professor of clinical biomedical sciences at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Lyle Petersen, the CDCs director of diseases transmitted through insect bites, also said there was low risk of a yellow fever outbreak in Florida. We learned with Zika, thousands of people came to the United States with Zika virus which is carried by the same mosquito „ the Aedes aegypti mosquito „ and only saw very limited transmission down in parts of southern Texas and in the Miami area,Ž Petersen said in a March teleconference. Thats still not a guarantee against the disease. The fact that the (Aedes aegypti) mosquito is widespread in the country, all you need is a person infected with the virus to be the source of the virus,Ž Bush said. Mosquito control and mosquito bite prevention with repellent is really crucial. We cant overdo it.ŽFEVERFROM PAGE 1


The Sun /Monday, May 7, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: What do you know about esh-eating bacteria? After going to a hospital to get a mole checked, I developed an itchy rash that won't go away. I am worried. „ H.W. ANSWER: Let me reassure you that this isn't esh-eating bacteria. Itchy rash around a mole can be due to eczema, or it might be a fungal infection or one of several other benign skin conditions. A dermatologist can help gure out which. But, since you asked ... The term "esh-eating bacteria" is misleading since it's a disease, not a particular bacteria species. The term refers to a condition called "necrotizing fasciitis" ("necrotizing" means that the infection kills cells, and "fasciitis" references the connective tissue in the body that the infection proceeds along). However terrifying, it is fortunately a rare condition. There are only about 1-3 cases per 100,000 people. It may occur in people who are otherwise healthy and who happen to get an injury that penetrates the skin. But it is more common in people who have a diminished immune system due to chronic illness (diabetes, kidney or liver disease, cancer, heavy alcohol use). In most cases, in people with chronic disease, it is a combination of bacteria that cause the infection. In previously healthy people, the bacteria most associated are group A streptococcus. This bacteria strain has enzymes that damage the body and has the ability to evade the immune system. It can grow very rapidly, and early treatment is paramount to stopping the infection before permanent damage is done. In some cases, amputation is necessary; in others, no treatment is eective. The disease has a high mortality rate. The particular bacteria in a person with this diagnosis are very dangerous, and there are cases of person-to-person transmission of the bacteria, leading to additional cases, so caregivers and family need personal protective equipment. Eective treatment starts with recognition of the diagnosis. That can be hard; initial signs, such as redness, swelling and fever, can be nonspecic. Skin lesions, like blisters or bruising, can be misleading. However, a very high fever and more pain than expected are big clues to the diagnosis. Treatment is primarily surgical. Antibiotics alone are ineective. DEAR DR. ROACH: A recent column on sinusitis argued against routine antibiotics. Your advice, while sound, does not apply to all of us. I am an MDS patient with compromised immunity. When I get sick, it takes three times as long to recover. I feel the rules may apply to "normal" people, but not all of us. What would you recommend for someone like me? „ B.F. ANSWER: My answers certainly do not apply to all situations, and immunocompromised individuals are an excellent example. In the case of sinus infections, it depends on the person's exact type of immune problem. Immunocompromised individuals certainly are more likely to be prescribed antibiotics, and are more likely to be subject to diagnostic testing when things don't go as expected. Some kinds of immune system disease predispose people to unusual infections, which require specic treatments. Taking care of anyone requires judgment and experience, and physicians who have known their patients a long time are in a better position to judge who needs antibiotic treatment for sinus infection and who does well with supportive treatment. In the case of someone with immune system disease, that is even more important.DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend's best friend asked if we could drive an hour to visit them and their children on Saturday. I've met her twice, and we have chatted a bit online. My boyfriend just told me she wants to take o with him to a bar for a birthday drink „ or two „ while I stay at home with her ance. When I heard about it, I said I am not OK with being excluded. When I texted her saying I didn't want to be ditched, she insisted that I need to share him, and her ance is looking forward to getting to know me better. I think she's rude. When you invite a couple over, I believe the expectation is to socialize as a group, not break o. Can you please weigh in on the etiquette? „ Unexpected Plans In The East DEAR UNEXPECTED: The purpose of getting together is for all concerned to have an enjoyable time. If you wouldn't feel comfortable in the situation as it was described, you shouldn't have been pressured to agree, regardless of whether it's her birthday weekend. She was wrong to do that, and yes, it was rude. DEAR ABBY: My son was in a serious accident, which left him with a head injury as well as other physical problems. Since then he has also had anxiety attacks, paranoia and a profound dislike of me. Unfortunately, due to condentiality regulations, I am unable to speak to his doctors. We have had no contact for three months, and I won't initiate it. I love him and this is breaking my heart. „ Unhappy Mama In The West DEAR UNHAPPY MAMA: Although HIPAA regulations prevent you from speaking with his doctors, nothing prevents you from writing them a letter if you think there's something they need to know. You'd be wise to seek professional counseling for yourself now. A therapist can give you insight on how to move forward. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about children's toys left in the street. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: The street I live on has several young families with very young children. Every day, they leave their tricycles, bikes and toys in the street. I'm worried that one day, one of the children will run out into the road to retrieve a toy and will get hit by a car. It's nearly happened a couple of times. Why don't parents teach their children to pick up their toys and keep them out of the road? This is a serious situation that may one day have tragic results." „ Diana J., via email Dear Heloise: As an avid reader and bird lover, please tell your readers not to throw away eggshells. Toss them in the yard for the birds. Crows and robins and many other birds pick them up to eat. The calcium in the shells makes their own eggshells stronger. „ Bootsie D., Trinity, TexasFlesh-eating bacteria: terrifying, but very rare condition Friend's invitation loses its appeal as details unravel Keep toys o the streetHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 8 The Sun / Monday, May 7, 2018 NATION/WORLD NEWSBOSTON „ A powerful exhibition of quilts memorializing migrants from Mexico and Central America who have died in the southern Arizona desert in the past 20 years is on display amid intense national debate over immigration policy. Seventeen quilts from the Migrant Quilt Project are currently hanging in the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts, in a display that runs until July 15. The goal is to move the immigration debate beyond statistics and political sniping and put the plight of real people in the spotlight. My hope is to show the enormity of this humanitarian crisis,Ž project founder Jody Ipsen said. I dont think people understand. I want people to look at these quilts and feel compelled to act and to support humanitarian immigration reform.Ž The project was inspired when Ipsen was camping in the Arizona desert with a friend and came across a way station for migrants who had crossed the border. The desert was strewn with their trash „ bottles, diapers, personal hygiene products and clothing. Ipsen was at “rst appalled by the desecration of the pristine desert. But she was also curious. What, she wondered, drives people to risk their lives to cross a dangerous desert, at the mercy of human smugglers, to come the U.S.? Its ruthless out there in that desert,Ž she said. Inspired by the AIDS Memorial Quilt, she started collecting the discarded clothing and recruited textile artists to incorporate the fabric into quilts. Ipsen even pitched in on one. There has been one quilt produced by volunteers per federal “scal year since 2000, 17 in all. While each quilt has a different design and they vary in size, there are some common themes. Theyre all emblazoned with the names of every person who died in the desert that year „ or, if that persons name was not known to authorities, with the word  desconocido ,Ž Spanish for stranger. Recorded deaths range from 122 to 282 per year. Most of the quilts are also covered with religious and cultural imagery, ”owers and skulls. The 2009-2010 quilt is reminiscent of the U.S. ”ag. The names of border crossers who died are written on the white stripes, and in the place of the white stars on a blue “eld, the upper left corner is a deserted road that disappears into the distance beneath a starry sky. Quilts may connote comfort and warmth to most people, but theres a history of using them to make social and political points, said Nora Burch“eld, the museums executive director. Quilts have been made for the abolitionist, temperance, and environmental movements and, more recently, in response to gun violence. There is a long tradition of using the quilt-making process to bring attention to social causes because women didnt have any other outlet to express their concerns, outrage, and opinions,Ž Burch“eld said. They could say on a quilt all the things they werent given a platform to say.Ž Lowell is an appropriate place for the exhibit because the modern-day city of more than 110,000 residents was built on immigrant power, from the Irish who dug the citys famed canals, to the French-Canadians, Greeks, Portuguese and others who worked in the mills in the 19th century, to the Cambodian and Latin American immigrants who came in the 20th century. More recently, refugees from Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Burma, and Syria have resettled in the city, according to the Lowell branch of the Immigration Institute of New England, an immigration advocacy group. The quilts tell the story of immigration that many people dont hear or “nd uncomfortable, said Rogers Muyanja, community relations manager for the organization. Its important for people to see an exhibit like this and learn about things they dont have much information about,Ž he said. And beyond the social implications of the quilts, theres one other reason to see them. They are beautiful,Ž Burch“eld said.Its ruthless out there: Quilts honor dead migrants to USBy MARK PRATTASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this Wednesday photo, Pam Weeks, curator at the New England Quilt Museum (hand only), points to a quilt by artist Jennifer Eschedor, that is part of the exhibit: Beyond the Border Wall, The Migrant Quilt Project, at the museum, in Lowell, Mass. Artists, quilt makers and activists have joined forces to create unusual memorials to migrants from Mexico and Central America who died in the southern Arizona desert. Theyve sewn quilts from bits of clothing, keepsakes, and found objects collected in the migrants makeshift camps. MADRID (AP) „ Spains maritime rescue service said Sunday that it saved 476 migrants who were attempting the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea from African shores. The migrants were pulled from 15 small boats on Friday and Saturday, of“cials said. There were no reported casualties. Separately, a Spanish nonpro“t dedicated to helping migrants at sea rescued 105 more migrants in waters near Libya during a mission on Sunday. The aid group Proactive Open Arms found the migrants, from Bangladesh, Egypt, Libya, Nigeria and other countries, drifting at sea in a motorless boat. The migrants told an Associated Press photographer onboard who documented the rescue that human smugglers sailing in a separate boat removed their boats engine halfway through the dangerous Mediterranean crossing and left. Favorable weather appears to have sparked the surge in sea crossings. Each year, tens of thousands of migrants attempt to reach Spain and other southern European countries by crossing the Mediterranean in smugglers boats. Most of the vessels are un“t for open water, and thousands of migrants drown each year. The U.N. says 615 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean so far this year. A total of 22,439 migrants have reached European shores, with 4,409 arriving in Spain, through the “rst four months of 2018.Spain rescues 476 migrants crossing Mediterranean Sea AP PHOTORefugees and migrants wait to be rescued by members of the Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms, after leaving Libya and trying to reach European soil aboard an overcrowded rubber boat, north of Libyan coast, Sunday. Swarm of quakes hits El Salvador, damaging dozens of homes Teen dead, sister missing in Mexico underground river tourSAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) „ A swarm of earthquakes shook southern El Salvador on Sunday, damaging dozens of homes, but there were no immediate reports of serious injuries or deaths. The U.S. Geological Survey said at least nine quakes of magnitude 4.3 or greater struck the region beginning in the morning, including three of magnitude 5.2 to 5.6. The Central American nations civil defense agency posted photos online of damaged roofs and rock slides. It said at least 75 homes had damage and three were destroyed. Civil defense director Jorge Melendez said one of the quakes unleashed slides on a highway leading to Playa El Cuco, one of the most visited tourist beaches in the area. USGS geophysicist Don Blakeman said the earlier quakes were likely foreshocks to the magnitude 5.6 event, which hit just after 1 p.m. local time. Its epicenter was located offshore in the Paci“c, about 8 miles from the town of Intipuca, at a depth of 6 miles. Seismic activity is common in Central America, where tectonic plates meet, and Blakeman said Sundays shakes were not really anything out of the ordinary.Ž MEXICO CITY (AP) „ Authorities in southern Mexico say two teenage sisters who went on a tour of an underground river were swept away by the current, and one has been found dead. Guerrero state security spokesman Roberto Alvarez says the sisters, aged 16 and 19, hail from the State of Mexico. They disappeared Saturday while on the cave tour in Cacahuamilpa National Park. Alvarez said Sunday in a statement that they were among a group of 19 visitors out“tted with life vests and accompanied by two guides. He told The Associated Press that the lifeless body of one sister had been found. Rescuers were searching for the other. | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDOccasionally you do see these kinds of swarms,Ž he said. We see swarms of small earthquakes in lots of places. Thats for instance very typical in Yellowstone, and that sort of thing. But these are pretty good size for sure.Ž The area affected is near El Salvadors border with Honduras. The larger quakes were also felt in the capital, San Salvador, about 90 miles to the west, but the local Red Cross said there were no reports of damage or injuries there. WASHINGTON „ Gina Haspel, President Donald Trumps nominee to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, offered to withdraw her nomination, two senior administration of“cials said Sunday, amid concerns that a debate over a harsh interrogation program would tarnish her reputation and that of the CIA. White House aides on Friday sought out additional details about Haspels involvement in the CIAs now-defunct program of detaining and brutally interrogating terror suspects after 9/11 as they prepared her for Wednesdays con“rmation hearing. This is when she offered to withdraw, the of“cials said. They said Haspel, who is the acting director of the CIA, was reassured that her nomination was still on track and will not withdraw. The of“cials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The news was “rst reported Sunday by The Washington Post. Haspel, who would be the “rst woman to lead the CIA, is the “rst career operations of“cer to be nominated to lead the agency in decades. She served almost entirely undercover and much of her record is classi“ed. Democrats say she should be disquali“ed because she was the chief of base at a covert detention site in Thailand where two terrorism suspects were subjected to waterboarding, a technique that simulates drowning. Haspel has told lawmakers in recent weeks that she would stand “rm against any effort to restart the brutal detention and interrogation program, administration of“cials told The Associated Press on Friday. She is expected to reiterate that publicly this week. Haspel, one of“cial said, was wary of suffering the same fate as failed veterans affairs nominee Ronny Jackson and of dredging up the CIAs troubled past. She took over last month as the acting CIA director after the previous director, Mike Pompeo, was sworn in as secretary of state. After Haspels offer to withdraw, White House aides worked to reassure her that she had the presidents support. As with other nominations, this one hit a roadblock but is back on track, said a third administration of“cial familiar with the effort to get her con“rmed. Haspels conversations with senators continue ahead of Wednesdays con“rmation hearing at the Senate Intelligence Committee and a later full vote in the Senate. In addition, the CIA has sent materials to the Senate, some classi“ed, that the lawmakers can read to better understand not only her work in the Counterterrorism Center, which oversaw the harsh interrogation program, but also other aspects of her 33-year career, including more than 30 years undercover. Haspel has received robust backing from former intelligence, diplomatic, military and national security of“cials, who praise her extensive intelligence career. On the opposing side are groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, which says she should have stood up against the interrogation practices then.CIA nominee offered to withdraw over interrogation programBy ZEKE MILLER and DEB RIECHMANNASSOCIATED PRESS GINA HASPEL

PETERSBURG „ Torontos record against Tampa Bay since 2008 is its poorest against any AL team. The Blue Jays last year won the season series for only the second time in a decade. After losses in the first two games of the weekend series, the Blue Jays felt pressure to produce a turnaround. We kind of saw this game as a game we really needed to win, to wrap up our road trip being successful,Ž Pillar said after scoring the tiebreaking run on Alex Colomes wild pitch in the ninth to help lift the Blue Jays over the Rays 2-1 Sunday. Toronto stopped a three-game losing streak. We know every time we come in this place they play us tough,Ž Pillar said. The way we won it today is something to build on.Ž Pillar doubled off Colome (2-4) leading off the ninth, advanced on Kendrys Morales grounder and came home without a throw when Colome bounced a pitch off the mitt of catcher Wilson Ramos. It was Torontos first win since the 11-inning opener of a doubleheader at Cleveland on Thursday. The last two games we werent quite all there, and I think its due to those long two games in Cleveland,Ž Toronto pitcher Marco Estrada said. Blue Jays shortstop Aledmys Diaz was carted off the field in the fifth inning after spraining his left ankle. Diaz wore a boot after the game.

By MATTHEW COLESAssociated PressSALT LAKE CITY „ Chris Paul had 27 points and 12 rebounds while James Harden scored 24 points to power the Houston Rockets to a 100-87 win over the Utah Jazz on Sunday night, taking a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series. Paul, playing the sidekick to Harden for most of his first season in Houston, took center stage, controlling the tempo and getting to his favorite spots as the Rockets led from start to finish. Donovan Mitchell scored 25 before fouling out and Joe Ingles had 15 for the Jazz. Mitchell started finding lanes to the basket late and got the Jazz within 85-80 after he fueled a 10-2 run. But Paul who matched his scoring high for this playoff run, hit a pull-up jumper and found Trevor Ariza for a 3-pointer to put the Rockets back up by double digits and they never looked back. Houston, which has been known for their offensive firepower, put forth a disruptive defensive effort. Clint Capela, the anchor of the Houston defense, had 12 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, one of which featured a Dikembe Mutombo-like finger wag in the fourth quarter. The Rockets went up by 15 in the second quarter before the Jazz closed to 51-46 on backto-back three-point plays by Mitchell. Utah trailed 58-48 at the half.

Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay and Cody Eakin sealed it with an empty-netter to help Vegas become just the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its first season. The Toronto Arenas won the Stanley Cup in the first postseason in league history in 1918 and St. Louis won two rounds to win the allexpansion West Division in 1968. The Golden Knights relied on a crew of castoffs, led by a goalie who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh before headlining a new team. Fleury posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3. Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night. The Sharks had numerous opportunities all night but were thwarted by a couple of shots that hit the iron, some acrobatic saves from Fleury and other chances that trickled just wide. This marked the fourth straight postseason for the Sharks that ended with a loss on home ice. The Golden Knights took control of this game with some good fortune in the second period. It started when usually reliable MarcEdouard Vlasic turned the puck over in his own zone. Reilly Smith took control near the blue line and found Marchessault alone in front for a goal that trickled between Martin Jones pads.

Stone Crabs starting pitcher Kenny Rosenberg (2-1) lasted six innings, allowing just two runs as the Stone Crabs began to pile on the runs. Nate Lowe opened the scoring for Charlotte (15-15) with a homer to begin the home half of the second inning to match Arden Pabsts solo shot in the first for Brandenton. The homer was Lowes first of four hits on the afternoon and he would only be matched by Jesus Sanchezs 4 for 5 performance. The Stone Crabs forced in another run to take a 2-1 lead before the second inning was over, and then scored two more runs in the third and fourth innings as Rosenberg held the Marauders at bay. Spencer Jones and Yoel Espinal relieved Rosenberg, with Jones pitching a clean seventh inning and Espinal giving up one run on two hits over his two innings of work. The Stone Crabs will look to break above the .500 mark when they travel to play at the Fort Myers Miracle for a three-game series, beginning tonight at 7 p.m. Coverage can be seen on the Stone Crabs Baseball Network.SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLNate Lowes second-inning homer got the scoring going for Charlotte and was the first of four hits on the day for the first baseman.

I just wanted an explanation,Ž Gibbons said. Nobody calls balks anymore, not at that time of a close game. Dont give away the game, thats my beef. If everybody does it all the time, I get it.Ž Rookie Anthony Alford singled leading off the fifth, stole a base for the first time in the major leagues, advanced on Luke Mailes flyout and scored on Diazs infield single to first baseman Brad Miller. Diaz hit the side of the base while trying to avoid a collision with pitcher Chris Archer, who was covering. Tepera (2-1) failed to protect an eighth-inning lead, allowing a home run to Carlos Gomez leading off the inning. Gomez was 3 for 4 with his fifth home run this season, raising his average from .181 to .200. Roberto Osuna allowed Daniel Robinsons oneout single in the ninth, then got Mallex Smith to ground into a forceout and retired Gomez on a groundout. Osuna has nine saves in 10 chances. Estrada gave up four hits and three walks in six innings, lowering his ERA from 6.19 to 5.21. Estrada had allowed 18 runs in his four previous starts. Archer yielded one run and five hits in a seasonhigh seven innings. Ramos had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 14 games.UP NEXTRays: LHP Blake Snell (4-1, 2.55) faces Atlanta on Tuesday in the first game of a two-game series.By BETH HARRISAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. „ The competition isnt exactly lining up to take on Kentucky Derby winner Justify in the Preakness. Of his 19 rivals in the Derby, it appears most will skip the second leg of the Triple Crown in favor of resting and being pointed toward other races. That leaves mostly fresh horses to potentially fill the maximum 14-horse Preakness field. A day after Justify raced to a 2-length victory in the slop as the 5-2 favorite, trainer Bob Baffert and his star horse drew a horde of visitors to his barn at Churchill Downs. Baffert guided his fifth Derby winner out of the barn and walked him in a tight circle for fans who eagerly snapped photos on their phones. The chestnut colts coat shone in the morning sunlight and he nibbled on a couple of baby carrots Baffert plucked from his vest pocket. He knows hes a stud,Ž Baffert said. It was a quick appearance. With Justify playfully tossing his head, Baffert knew it was best to get the champ back in his stall where he couldnt inadvertently kick anyone. When I came out of the stall, he was pulling me,Ž the trainer said. Usually theyre a little bit tired, but he was good.Ž Bafferts phone rang Sunday with an official invitation to bring Justify to run in the Preakness on May 19 in Baltimore. I didnt tell them Id think about it,Ž he said. Theres no reason to say no.Ž Baffert will be seeking his record-tying seventh Preakness victory. His four other Derby winners „ Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah „ all won the 1 ‡-mile race. Of course, American Pharoah went on to capture the Belmont and complete the sports first Triple Crown sweep in 37 years. But Baffert isnt going there yet. Right now Im thinking just keep him healthy,Ž he said. Baffert plans to leave Justify at Churchill Downs until shipping the chestnut colt to Pimlico likely the Wednesday of race week. Derby runner-up Good Magic, last years 2-year-old champion and Breeders Cup Juvenile winner, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness. However, New York-based trainer Chad Brown said he would weigh his options before making a final decision. I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse,Ž Brown said. The horse will tell us.Ž D. Wayne Lukas expects to have two Preakness runners: Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, and Sporting Chance, fourth in the Pat Day Mile on the Derby undercard. Lukas has won the Preakness six times. Among the fresh horses under consideration are Tampa Bay Derby winner Quip and Federico Tesio winner Diamond King. Quip had enough qualifying points to get into the Derby field, but his ownership chose to point him toward the Preakness. The colt is owned by WinStar Farm, one of Justifys multiple owners. Todd Pletcher, who dislikes running his horses again in two weeks, said Audible (third in the Derby), Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy would return to his New York base.

By CARLOS RODRGUEZAssociated PressMONTERREY, Mexico „ Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was put on the 10-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis and returned to Los Angeles on Sunday for tests. Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said the left-hander got hurt before Saturday*s game against San Diego. It*s little bit headscratching, but we have to keep moving forward,Ž Roberts said. I know he*s frustrated, because he wants to carry the load.Ž Kershaw is 1-4 with a 2.68 ERA this season with 48 strikeouts and 10 walks in 44 innings. I got word from the training staff yesterday when he was trying to play catch that it just was not feeling right,Ž Roberts said. He said that during his last start he felt it just a little bit, and we gave him a couple of extra days.Ž Kershaw allowed two runs and six hits over six innings on Tuesday against Arizona. Roberts hopes the injury is limited to the biceps. If it was more of a other part of the arm, it would be more concerning, but being the biceps we are more hopeful,Ž Roberts said. Kershaw will be examined by head team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache. A three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw is on the disabled list for the fourth time. He was sidelined from March 23 to May 5, 2014, with a major muscle strain in his back, from June 27 to Sept. 9, 2016, with a herniated disk in his lower back and from July 24 to Sept. 1 last year with a lower back strain. Kershaw is earning $30.4 million this year in the fifth season of a $215 million, seven-year contract, but has the right to opt out after the World Series and become a free agent, giving up salaries of $32 million next year and $33 million in 2020. Los Angeles recalled right-hander Brock Stewart from TripleA Oklahoma City on Sunday. The 26-year-old made one appearance for the Dodgers this year, giving up one run in 1 ‡ innings against the Diamondbacks in a relief appearance on April 30. He is 1-0 with a 2.41 ERA in four starts with Oklahoma City.Kershaw put on DL with biceps tendinitis AP PHOTOTampa Bay Rays Denard Span (2) congratulates Carlos Gomez, right, after Gomezs eighth-inning home run Sunday in St. Petersburg.

Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas „ Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts left Bostons series finale at Texas after getting hit in the back with a throw. The Red Sox say Betts, who went into Sundays game hitting .352 with an MLB-best 13 homers, had a bruised right shoulder. Betts initially stayed in the game after the play in the first inning that followed his leadoff single. First baseman Ronald Guzman fielded Andrew Benintendis grounder, tagged the bag and made the throw that struck Betts. Replay showed Betts also landed awkwardly on his right hand when he fell down. But he eventually scored on Mitch Morelands double. Betts batted again in the second. He appeared to roll his shoulder several times before lining out to center field. He was replaced defensively in the bottom of the second. MLB: Red SoxOF Betts leaves game with bruised shoulder
