NEWS WIRE SPECIAL SECTIONCelebrating the class of 2018DETAILS, INSIDE SEBRING „ Members of the Tourist Development Council voted Tuesday to raise the county tourist tax on short-term lodging to 4 percent. However, they also voted to end carve-outs for lake improvements and for arts and culture events and attractions. Instead, they recommended setting aside one of the 4 cents collected on every dollar „ estimated at $220,000 annually „ for an Asset Development and Enhancement Fund. Improvements currently being made on lakes „ such as seawall, dock and boat ramp repairs „ could TDC: Raise tax to 4 percentBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER Thank You! MomA special day for moms who are special Mavelous Mo on winer nveiled We want to celebrate moms on Mothers Day because many moms dont get much recognition for the wonderful things they do. We asked readers to submit their reason for why their mom/ mother “gure is marvelous. We sure had a hard time after reading all of the marvelous mom submissions. Vivian stood out because of her ability to shine a bright light on a dark day for her family. Because of that, she has won service from Bill Jarrett Ford, the business sponsor of the Marvelous Mom content. Below is the winning submission, sent to us by Vivian Kasley. We hope you enjoy reading it and Happy Mothers Day to all of the wonderful moms and mother “gures in our community, far and wide! My mother, Vivian Cole, well, she is one of a kind I think. Life wasnt really ever easy on my mother. She was a single mother to three young children when our father pretty much abandoned us. We all moved in with our grandparents so my mother could go to nursing school. She worked most days and studied at night, but she still found time to play with MOM | 7SEBRING „ Its a big day for mom and a big day for retailers as sons and daughters and husbands thank momma on Mothers Day. According to Nation Retailers Federation annual survey, 86 percent of Americans will celebrate Mothers Day this year and spend an average of $180 per person. Individuals ages 35-44 will be the biggest spenders at an average $224. Thirty-“ve percent of consumers will head to department stores and 31 percent will shop online, while 29 percent plan to shop at specialty stores such as ”orists, jewelers or electronics stores. But, you cant put a price on moms love and caring and everything she has done for her kids and family. The words sung by Luke Bryan in his current country hit Most People are GoodŽ ring true for most moms: I believe most people are good, And most Mamas oughta qualify for sainthood.Ž Highlands County Superintendent of Schools Brenda Longshore shared her appreciation of her mother who was and is always ready to help her family and those in need. I am very blessed to have wonderful parents who have nurtured, supported, and encouraged me throughout my life,Ž Longshore said. My mother loves life and loves people!Ž From my earliest memories, my mother has taken care of others. She is always available, always ready to feed an extra child around our dinner table, always ready to be the homeroom mom (when we had them), always ready to encourage when I had a rough day, always ready to transport me and all my friends to any event that we might be involved in, always ready to bake a cake for a friend in need, always ready to send a card to a hurting family, and most importantly always ready to pray for me and others through ups and downs of life. Thank you mother for modeling for me how to live life to the fullest each and every day,Ž Longshore said. You are a blessing to me and so many others that affectionately call you Momma Jo. I love you!Ž Mothers Day, created by Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia in 1908, became an of“cial U.S. holiday in 1914 with President Woodrow Wilson signing the orders that made Mothers Day a national holiday in the United States.

California is the worlds largest producer of dried plums, supplying approximately 40 percent of the worlds supply and 99 percent of the U.S. supply. 2. The California Dried Plum took root during the Gold Rush, when brothers Louis and Pierre Pellier brought the Petite dAgen plum from France and grafted it onto wild American rootstock. Thanks to its high sugar content, the Petite dAgen ripens fully on the tree without fermenting around the pit. 3. When a labor shortage hit California in 1905, a farmer turned to 500 monkeys to harvest the prune plums. Organized into gangs of 50 with a human foreman, the monkeys picked the prune plums well but ate them all up. Today, machines do the work„ without eating the fruit. 4. A prune plum tree produces up to 300 pounds of fruit. It takes three pounds of the fresh fruit to make one pound dried. 5. Modern technology has come a long way, especially in the prune-plums industry. With a wide variety of smartphones and apps available, its a no-brainer that many growers rely on technology to ef“ciently manage their crops. Growers use smartphone apps not only to check wind speed and air temperatures, but also when to irrigate.

The homes look similar, carrying the same vaulted living rooms, new “xtures, metal roofs and structural insulated panels. However, its the shared backyard with friends they already have, plus neighbors who have welcomed them in immediately that has impressed the new owners. Tarniz and Trene Williams said the backyard, bordered with the home of Bishop Tyrone and Sophia Powell, will be an excellent place to recreate and socialize. I love to barbecue,Ž Tarniz Williams said. The Williams family came to Highlands County from Miami. It was better for their kids, and had a lower cost of living, Trene Williams said. Once they quali“ed, she asked to move to Avon Park over Sebring, and the outreach by their neighbors bore that out, she said. I say to the kids,Ž Tarniz Williams said. Were getting by now, but well be able to grow up in this house.Ž He “gures rental costs, over the last eight years, has easily cost $50,000. Now, they will own their home. Their new three-bedroom, two-bathroom home will accommodate them, they said. Theyre getting some elbow room right away: One, soon to be 19, is preparing to attend college, Tarniz Williams said. He is looking. The house was sponsored by Alan Jay Automotive Group, said Sarah Creekmore, executive director of Highlands Habitat. In addition to that donation, she said, last years annual Habitat golf tournament brought in another $25,000 to completely cover the cost of the $85,000 home. Chase Bank also donated the property on East Winthrop Street, Creekmore said.By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFMembers of the Williams family gather Thursday afternoon on the front lawn of their new Avon Park home in the afterglow of the homes dedication by members of Habitat for Humanity.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Four SFSC faculty appointed as endowed chairsAVON PARK „ Colleges and universities “nd a number of ways to honor and encourage faculty who go beyond the requirements of the classroom. To that end, four South Florida State College faculty members have been appointed as endowed chairs in their respective disciplines with funds donated through the SFSC Foundation. Darlene Saccuzzo, dental education professor, was appointed as the Highlands County Health Facilities Authority (HCHFA) endowed Chair in Dental Education, and Dawn Pisarski, nursing professor, was appointed as the HCHFA Endowed Chair in Nursing Education. The Norm and Laurie Stephens Endowed Teaching Chair went to Bob Sconyers, dental assisting professor, and the Carol Emery Endowed Chair in Mathematics went to Cheryl John, developmental mathematics professor. Faculty members appointed as teaching chairs are awarded $5,000 per year for two years, with half going toward equipment, professional development, or to attend a conference related to the faculty members discipline of study. The other half is a salary stipend. Saccuzzo plans to use part of her award to offer new technology that delivers more intense one-on-one instruction to dental education students. Students can be seated at their own operatories and watch instrumentation delivered by the instructor relayed via a computer monitor located at each operatory station. In real time, students are able to imitate instrumentation strokes and adaptation as it is being demonstrated. The funds from Pisarskis award will be used to send two or three SFSC nursing faculty members to the American Holistic Nurses Association annual conference and bring back best practices on the importance of including self-care into ones daily life. Faculty and students will be given the tools needed to live a ful“lling, balanced life, and avoid the pitfalls of burnout in a high-stress profession. Sconyers plans to attend a conference that covers the latest in dental materials and equipment and will purchase cutting edge technology for the classroom. By purchasing the latest and best equipment, not to mention the equipment our local dental clinics use, our department will continue to be on the leading edge of dental education,Ž he said. We must stay ahead of the curve to offer the best to our students and the community at large.Ž John would like to use her award to create and implement math boot camps for students to take prior to taking the diagnostic testing required for placement into college mathematics courses, if they have not been exempt. Three courses would last one to three weeks each. These courses would improve student testing in mathematics, particularly for those who have been out of school for several years. Recipients for endowed teaching chairs at SFSC are chosen by a selection committee, with advice and counsel from college faculty. Selections are con“rmed by Thomas C. Leitzel, SFSC president. The idea of endowed teaching chairs at state and community colleges came from research chairs at universities. This program gives us a way to show appreciation for excellence in teaching,Ž said Jamie Bateman, executive director of institutional advancement at SFSC, who oversees the SFSC Foundation.SPECIAL TO THE HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN COURTESY PHOTOReceiving the Norm and Laurie Stephens Endowed Teaching Chair was Bob Sconyers, center.

Maybe you had occasion to seek out some advice when your “rst girlfriend wanted to just be friends.Ž Was your mom the person you sought out? How about when you wanted to use the family car? Did your mom intervene with dad? Perhaps, when you felt a teacher was being unfair or unreasonable in their expectations, was it was your mom who went to school and represented your best interests? When you had to produce that science project, who bought the backboard and gave you advice on the design? More often than not, it was your mom. Who cooked your meals? Who washed your clothes? Who drove you to soccer, football or baseball games? And, after your “rst real broken heart, was it your mom who told you that person just didnt know what a good thing they had given up? According to Wikipedia, celebration of Mothers Day in the United States began in the early 20th century. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). Anna Jarvis is given credit for being the founder of Mothers Day in the United States. Today we honor our mothers for all their love, devotion, hard work and advice over the years „ not to mention their laborŽ of love in giving birth to us. Many of us will take Mom to dinner. We may have sent ”owers or bought a gift. These are great ways to show your appreciation for their gift of caring and nurturing. Those traits seem to be automatic in every mother. It is seemingly natures gift to women to help them raise their children the best they can. Thats not to mean Mom never made a mistake. And, certainly there are instances where you and Mom butted heads. Sadly, some of us may even have been raised without a mother in our life. And, lets not forget the moms who are not birth moms. Were talking about stepmothers, grandmothers who raised their grandkids and even women who took on the role of mother when there was no mother in the home. But none of that should diminish the role mothers play every day. When we need advice, when we need someone to care, the person you can almost always go to is Mom. And today we celebrate her and all she means to us. Put her on a pedestal today. Spoil her. Give in to her whims and wishes. And, most of all, love her. Shes the only mother youll ever have. „ Sun NewspapersMothers are deserving of a special dayThe “ve young children wanted to do something magical for Mothers Day. After all, how many handmade cards that say I Love You MomŽ could a mother want? Apparently, quite a few, as we discovered later, stuffed into a dresser drawer. Little treasures kept forever. We could have cooked a Mothers Day breakfast, assuming we had the skills, but we wanted something big, something grand. Something kids aged 6 to 12 could pull off. We had been to the Safeway grocer just a few days earlier and seen the small assortment of ”owers for sale. Breaking open the piggy banks, we “lled our pockets with loose change. It was several blocks, but the adventure made the walk feel short. In the door, to the right. And there it was. Among the wide variety of ”owers was a big, beautiful white orchid corsage. Five children, with nodding heads, gathered around the white orchid corsage, Little hands reached for the orchid, but only one could carry the prize to the checkout line. Emptying pockets at checkout, barely were there suf“cient funds for so grand an object. But it was Saturday. And Mothers Day wasnt till Sunday. Where to hide from our inquisitive mother, our Sunday surprise. The box said keep refrigerated, making our hiding place even more dif“cult. We chose inside the freezer, behind the ice cream. Shockingly, Saturday night, not a single child wanted any ice cream for desert, when Mom asked. Mothers Day, no handwritten I Love You MomŽ cards waited on the breakfast table. Something more awesome was in store. As Mom entered the kitchen, “ve children rushed the freezer, reached behind the ice cream. Out came our brown orchid. Wilted and brown, not big beautiful and white. At that moment, our mom had a decision to make. She could scold us for being so foolish. She could laugh and give us a gentle lesson in horticulture. Which would you have done? Our mom did something completely unexpected. How could you children afford an orchid?Ž she asked. And not just any orchid. This is the rare African brown orchid. Its beautiful!Ž She pinned that wilted brown orchid on her Sunday Mothers Day church dress. We all piled into the station wagon, off to church. She quickly bragged to everyone she met that Sunday morning, her kids had bought her a rare African brown orchid. We saw the adults smile and nod their heads. Yes, I know,Ž she said. I have the most thoughtful, generous children a mother could ever hope for.Ž That was the story she told, and deep in our young hearts, we “gured she was must be right. We spent our childhoods trying to become the people that Mom apparently thought we were. In the last few weeks, my mom now 89, entered hospice. I couldnt “nd a rare African brown orchid. A handmade I Love You MomŽ card had to suf“ce. Share your thoughts. David Dunn-Rankin is CEO of Sun Newspapers, the familyand employee-owned group that owns the Highlands News-Sun and Highlands Sun.

Just like Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, I never cared and thought it was a waste of time, money and stupid, too. I know the purpose of the investigation was to torture Bill for things the Clintons had gotten away with in the past, like Whitewater, etc., but, cmon, its a little ridiculous. Morally, a guy his age should have known how easy a girl her age, with her temperament at that time, googly-eyed, star struck and infatuated could be manipulated. As Maxine Impeach 45Ž Watters would say, Scum bag!Ž I always warned my daughters about smooth talkers, especially in positions of power. Realize nothing made Bill suffer like having to answer to Hillary. Stormy Daniels? Most Americans dont care what went on or what did not go on or when the $130,000 (hush money) was even paid to her. However, all media outlets seemed to be obsessed with this story with the exception of FOX News for the most part. FOX is not all pro Trump either. The few times Ive caught Sheppard Smith on TV, he gets as excited as a kid on Christmas morning when its bad news concerning Trump. However, he seems like a likable guy and his comments make me laugh. FOX has a great lineup of news anchors, each unique in their own way and they give it to you straight up. I dont think there is a person on earth who was as infatuated with the Stormy story as Anderson Cooper, anchor for CNN. The excerpts I saw from his interview with her were, well, I think if it were most women they would have been creeped out by his creepy questions and his stare. It was like it was all so foreign to him. Wonder why that is? Anyway, all storms eventually fade out and thats what will happen here.Robert Gilbert Sebring

Sunday, May 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 www.highlandsnewssun.com us and tell us stories. Not long after obtaining her nursing degree, she started dating a man, who would in time take on the role of being our father. She married him, got a job as a nurse, and we moved out into our own home. We had a pretty good life most of the time, despite many ups and downs over the years due to personal losses and other things life likes to throw in peoples way, but Mom always tried to make everything OK. Even when times were at their lowest, she would “nd a light to make it a little brighter. She always worked really hard to provide and take care of us and also, take care of other peoples families too. She would bring happiness not only to her own family, but to the patients at the nursing home where she worked. She made them gifts and food for most holidays and always made sure no one felt forgotten or unloved. She truly cared about everyones feelings, sometimes putting her own on hold. I know that this is why we are the way we are today, which is strong and always “nding a light during the darkness. In August 2016, my mother lost her husband and we lost the only father we ever knew to cancer. She had continued to work during his treatment to provide insurance and pay the bills since our father ended up having to leave his job when he got too sick and that meant he lost his insurance. She took care of her patients and she then came home and took care of our father. Our dad fought for almost two years, and we all watched the disease, along with the treatments, claim him in the process. It took everything out of him and soon, he could do nothing for himself. My mother missed a ton of work due to appointments at Mof“tt Cancer Center and taking care of our dad. She changed his dressings, gave him his meds, attended to his feeding tube, bathed him, shaved him, dressed him, and tried to make him happy and as comfortable as she could. We all helped when we could, but it was hard for us to tend to his medical needs and also, really, really hard in general. Seeing him like that was just one of the most painful events in my life as Im sure it was for all of us. My mother worked when she could and made the last few holidays she had with her husband and us with our dad as joyful it could be. She decorated the house to make it festive. She played holiday music. She made a huge feast at Thanksgiving and Christmas (we all helped) and even though our dad couldnt eat the food on the table, he sat with us and we all had those last holiday meals together. It was so painful, but Mom still did what she had to do to keep the spirits up. This time was the worst for our family. There are several things that occurred during this time that I was sure would break my mother, but she carried on and we all tried to do the same. My brothers lived far away, but I lived down the road and spent time there more often along with my step-sister. Soon our father went to hospice and my mother stopped going to work all together to be with him in his last days. He left us on Aug. 23, 2016 after 7 a.m. in the morning. As amazingly painful as it was to lose him, the pain that he was suffering and the state he was in, to see him “nally have peace was the only comfort we could gather. Our family was all together to say goodbye and together for his memorial. My mother took some more time off to grieve, but soon had to go back to work. However, she soon lost her job after she had missed so many days. She couldnt afford the home she was in, so she had to sell it and move into a smaller place. At 61, she had to start all over once again. Now, she helps take care of her 92-yearold father (our grandpa) who is suffering from dementia, as well as trying to live a new life and “nd her own personal happiness. Even though things are vastly different, Mom still has that light she carries to brighten her way through the darkest days, but also helps brighten ours too. She never gives up and as her daughter I can say I feel I have inherited that same perseverance and light that has carried me on through all the hardest times of my life. I would just want our mother to know, that she is loved and always will be and that she gave us the gift of life and kept on giving us the gift of life by always loving us and never giving up. I wish I could do more for her, I wish I could give her the world, but I know my mom would never ask for any of that. I know my mom would only want one thing, and that is to be loved and to let her love you back with all her heart. This story is a very condensed version of my mother and our life together, but I hope it is enough to invoke how wonderful she is as a mother and as a person. Its not all the material things a mother provides throughout our lives that creates memories or leaves impressions, it is the happiness, strength, compassion, and unconditional love. For that, I thank my mother and all mothers around the world who do the same.MOMFROM PAGE 1continue through that fund, said TDC Chief Marketing Consultant Casey Wohl Hartt. The fund could also pay for large-scale improvements, such as a convention center. Final approval would come from the Board of County Commission at its June 5 meeting. Hartt said TDC Board member Cynthia Garren, who was not present Tuesday, told her via email that she believes the future allocations would be determined by the TDCs strategic plan, when developed. TDC Board Chair Jim Brooks, also a county commissioner, said the TDC is overspending on marketing now. Hartt said, yes, the TDC has been hitting reserves. This “scal years marketing budget is $495,000, more than the entire $440,000 gross revenue. Administration costs, Hartt said, are $165,000 annually. Per year, that covers half of her twoyear, $147,000 contract, as well as Dana Knight, administrative assistant. The original proposal for raising the tourist tax „ as put forth when the TDC “rst approved an increase in February „ would have divvied up the gross $880,000 revenue as follows: € $44,000 for lakes, a 5 percent carve-out. € $165,000 for administration per year. € $495,000 per year for marketing, 75 percent of remaining funds. € $165,000 for asset development, 25 percent of remaining funds. The new proposal, out of $880,000 gross revenue, would allocate: € The “rst penny „ $220,000 „ for asset development. € $165,000 for administration. € $465,000 for all marketing. Hartt also said she wanted to schedule a workshop with the public to hear what kinds of priorities they would have for tourist tax revenue. Brooks said she wouldnt have time before June 5 to properly schedule and notice a public workshop. The TDC board, thus, decided to wait until after the county commission vote. Fred Leavitt, president of the Heartland Cultural Alliance, who has raised concerns in the past about how much marketing funds are used speci“cally for arts and culture, asked where the TDC is on setting up an overall marketing strategy. Hartt said the TDC plans to piggyback on a consultant bid that the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency awarded for its planning, although the focus of the TDC will be different than the downtown redevelopment focus of the CRA. The Asset Development and Enhancement Fund would take a few years to store up a big dollar amount. Until then, the TDC will still have funds in its existing accounts, Hartt said: $227,000 for lakes improvements and $177,000 to market local arts and culture. TDC Board member Vicki Pontius, recently retired from head of Parks and Natural Resources, likes that idea. My depart„ my previous department was the only one using the lakes account, (and) $227,000 is a nice sum of money to set aside,Ž Pontius said. Pontius also said the skys the limitŽ on marketing spending „ it can always be higher. However, building an asset shows people what they are getting for the tourist tax. TDC Board member Bill Brantley also liked the idea of having a designated fund to make enhancements. The county commission could then give public access to Lake Grassy,Ž Brantley said. Currently, the county owns land on the west side of the lake, but doesnt have a big enough fund to pay for a boat ramp and public park.TDCFROM PAGE 1 Laboratory biologist Erinn Muller. The discovery off Looe Key, south of Big Pine in part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, puts in jeopardy the southern end of the worlds third-largest barrier reef „ a scuba-diving destination renowned for its biological diversity. Its also more bad news for a reef that has lost half its coral over the last two centuries, already is suffering impacts from climate change and has emerged from a threeyear bleaching event. It is just heartbreaking for us because its such an iconic reef,Ž Muller said. I cant sleep at night because I think about it and what else can we do.Ž The disease, which now stands as the longest and largest infection for coral anywhere, jumped a gap in the 360-mile long reef tract at the Seven Mile Bridge, a point scientists had hoped would provide a natural obstacle. It “rst appeared off Virginia Key in 2014 and began spreading north, south and west. But until November 2017, it appeared to stop at the east end of the famous Keys bridge, Muller said. Scientists believe the disease is likely caused by a bacterial infection carried by currents, but little else is known. The Florida Current, which ”ows around the Florida Straits north into the Gulf Stream, likely carried it to Martin County, with smaller eddies spreading it south and west, Muller said. When coral began falling sick near Virginia Key, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was in the midst of dredging Government Cut. Miami-Dade County also has a massive sewage outfall pipe nearby. Its not clear whether either triggered the disease, or contributed to the spread on already stressed coral that also endured backto-back warm summers beginning in 2014. We have this one unique event and nobody was there “guring all these things out as it was happening,Ž she said. Well do our best to go back and recover information, but as of right now Im not convinced well ever know.Ž A large team of researchers led by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection with help from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, universities and nonpro“ts including Mote have set up a joint investigation. They have so far been unable to identify the bacteria causing the disease because theyve been unable to grow cultures. Coral, like people, collect countless bacteria „ some good and some bad. To identify the bad, researchers need to grow the suspected pathogens and apply it to healthy coral in a lab. Scientists also suspect currents are spreading the disease, but Muller said it has sometimes moved in unexpected ways. It de“nitely has hot places,Ž she said. You have certain reefs getting infected but then it seems to hop over a reef and show up in a different area than where we expect.Ž Theyre also working to identify vulnerable coral and “nd ways to treat or at least contain the damage. Brain and large boulder coral, the tracts biggest reef builders, appear to be more susceptible, but scientists arent sure why, Muller said. Theyve tried a number of ways in lab experiments to treat it „ cutting out sick coral, applying chlorine-laced epoxy as an adhesive bandage to create an antiseptic barrier and carving out “re breaks around reefs. Theyre also experimenting with a paste laced with antibiotics, trying to “nd a balance that will treat the coral but not contaminate reefs that already struggle with antibiotics from sewage outfall. But coral continue to die at an alarming rate. Some species are becoming extinct within certain regions,Ž Muller said. Were having basically local extinctions.Ž The only other comparable disease outbreak occurred in the 1970s and 80s and nearly wiped out staghorn and elkhorn corals, which landed both on the endangered species list. Scientists still dont know what caused them to become sick, but Muller said theres more hope for this epidemic. Coral science has advanced dramatically in the last four decades and reef rebuilding efforts started, with nurseries from the Keys to Miami growing coral. In recent years, Mote alone has planted 35,000 with plans to plant another 25,000 this year. Scientists are also working on developing more resilient coral. Its just so hard when you talk about the marine environment because of how connected it is,Ž she said. Its just mind-boggling to try to develop something thats large enough to have a real impact.ŽREEFSFROM PAGE 1It is just heartbreaking for us because its such an iconic reef, I cant sleep at night because I think about it and what else can we do.Ž„ Erin Muller, Mote Marine Laboratory Biologist newstips@newssun.com Email Your News Tips To: DO YOU HAVE THE NEXT BIG STORY OR NEWS TIP TO SHARE? 1305 US Highway 27 N., € Avon Park, FL 33825 863-453-3117www.jarrettford.com Celebratin Toda MomOn Mothers Day, wed like to wish our area moms the joyful and relaxing day they deserve.

Sunday, May 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A9 www.highlandsnewssun.com WASHINGTON (AP) „ Renewed tensions between the U.S. and Cuba arent stopping the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts from shining a spotlight on the islands rich cultural heritage during whats being billed as the largest Cuban arts festival ever held in the United States. Artes de Cuba: From the Island to the World,Ž which began this past week and runs through May 20, showcases the work of more than 400 Cuban and CubanAmerican artists across more than 50 events. The program includes the salsa band Los Van Van and other musicians, visual artists, movies, theater companies and ballerina Alicia Alonso and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba. Cuba is a cultural powerhouse, and to present such a diverse slate of Cuban and CubanAmerican artists all in a two-week span is unprecedented,Ž said Deborah F. Rutter, president of the Kennedy Center. The festival is not without controversy. It has come under “re from Cuban-American lawmakers, including GOP Reps. Carlos Curbelo, Mario DiazBalart and Ileana RosLehtinen of Florida, as well as Rep. Albio Sires, D-N.J. They wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in April urging him to consider the advisability of allowing so many pro-Castro regime Cuban nationalsŽ to enter the United States. Last year, the United States withdrew more than half of its diplomats from Cuba and halted visa processing, citing mysterious health attacksŽ in Havana that have harmed at least 24 Americans. Full diplomatic ties between the U.S. and the communist nation had been restored in 2015, under the Obama administration. Curator Alicia Adams, vice president of International Programming and Dance at the Kennedy Center, pushed back at the notion that the festival has ideological overtones. It is important for people in this country to be exposed to, in the aggregate, the extraordinary talent that exists in Cuba,Ž she told The Associated Press. The Kennedy Center has a golden rule, and that is that we maintain the ultimate curatorial authority. Neither the Cuban government nor the American government dictated to us who the artists should be.Ž Cuban fashion designer Celia Ledon, 32, who is showing 10 pieces in the festival, said the festival is not political, but rather an eclectic representation of what the Cuban culture is about.Ž Artist Roberto Diago, who lives in Havana, also is participating in the festival with two installations made of recycled materials. He said his installations convey how people overcome (obstacles) and go beyond misery to build a reality as worthy as possible.Ž Unfortunately, the political situation is tense,Ž he said. Politics always go their own way ... but culture and its international language create brotherhood. I think that is positive.ŽFestival shines spotlight on Cuban cultureBy LUIS ALONSO LUGOASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOCuban designer Celia Ledn poses with her fashion creation at the Kennedy Center in Washington, Tuesday, May 8. Renewed tensions between the U.S. and Cuba did not stop the John F.

Miami commissioner: Kim Jong Un haircut joke is racistMIAMI (AP) „ A Miami city commissioner is being called a racist after comparing an Asian-American commissioners haircut to that of North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns. The Miami Herald reports that Commissioner Joe Carollo told Commissioner Ken Russell he was fond of his Kim Jung Un,Ž referring to his recent haircut. Carollo then asked Russell if the haircut was to support President Donald Trumps plans to meet with Kim or a protest against it. Russell later criticized Carollo on Twitter, saying that racist humor is unacceptable. Russell tweeted that people have made Asian jokes around him since he was a kid, adding, Wasnt funny then. Not funny now.ŽSarasota Bay Watch looks to bring clams back to Sarasota BaySARASOTA (AP) „ Sarasota Bay Watch Inc., the area nonpro“t that already introduced millions of scallop larvae into Sarasota Bay, is starting an ambitious program to release more than 175,000 southern hard shell clams into the estuary. About 3,000 clams were placed in the New Pass area on April 20, as a test case. The hope is to bring the species, one of which can “lter almost 50 gallons of water per day, back to Sarasota Bay. Rusty Chinnis, chairman emeritus and one of the founding members of Sarasota Bay Watch, noted that clams have a lifespan of almost 30 years. That, in one way, makes clams a more cost-ef“cient species than scallops for the 11-year-old nonpro“t to concentrate on in its all-volunteer effort to both maintain and improve the quality of Sarasota Bay. The “rst large-scale introduction of clams into the waters of Sarasota Bay was May 12. As many as three more trips are planned in June and a total of eight through the summer. The hope is that eventually southern hard shell clams will reproduce and thrive in Sarasota Bay „ helping to clean the water, as well as contribute to the food chain. The very presence of these animals creates a minor ecosystem that, without them, wouldnt occur,Ž said Jim Culter, a senior scientist at Mote Marine Laboratory who both specializes in benthic ecology and supervises Motes shell“sh restoration program. In concert with the Sarasota Bay Watch planting effort, Culter is running a study to determine what environment gives the hard shell clams a better chance of survival. Mollusks, particularly “lter-feeding bivalves, are considered a key component of coastal ecology, and we should make an effort to keep them around,Ž he added.Prosecutors seek death penalty for missing girls murderFORT MYERS (AP) „ Prosecutors say theyre seeking the death penalty against a man accused of killing a missing 9-year-old Florida girl. The Lee County State Attorneys Of“ce “led a death penalty notice Friday for Jorge Guerrero-Torres, who was charged last week with “rst-degree murder. Authorities say Diana Alvarez went missing in May 2016, when GuerreroTorres was renting a room in the girls Fort Myers home. Detectives reported “nding pornographic images of Diana on his phone, which has already led to a 40-year sentence in federal prison for child pornography. Dianas body hasnt been found, but investigators believe she is dead.Wildlife officers trap, kill bear responsible for break-insLONGWOOD (AP) „ Wildlife of“cials in central Florida have captured and killed a bear who they say was responsible for several dog attacks and opening unlocked parked cars and garages. The bear was captured Friday in Longwood, a suburb of Orlando. Because the bears confrontations with humans and animals were escalating, wildlife of“cials felt it was necessary to humanely kill the bear, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Wildlife of“cials say the bear this week entered a garage by breaking through a side door. One of two yearlings traveling with the bear also was captured but was released into the Ocala National Forest.

Kimi Raikkonen was fourth in the sister Ferrari, followed by the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo. Mercedes had dominated all three practice sessions and once again demonstrated their pace, securing their rst frontrow lockout of 2018. Vettel was right behind the silver cars, although Raikkonen was 0.439 seconds off the pace, while Red Bull were pipped by Ferrari late on in Q3. I needed this pole, Lewis said. Ive not had pole for a while. It was very close, but Im very happy. I was trying to go for it in every sector. Its important for me to get back into a good position in qualifying, its usually a strength of mine. It was a very close qualifying.

Water temperature is perfect right now, the wind speed and direction will remain consistent all week and at the ideal speed range of 6 to 10 miles-perhour. The solar and lunar interaction will produce large concentrations of feeding sh during the midday hours and sunrise and sunset periods. All shing factors considered; shing in Floridas freshwater cant get any better than what well experience over the next six days. All shing factors align and point to catching sh.

The 32-time Grand Prix winner claimed a famous victory in his rst ever WEC race at Spa last Saturday in the No. 8 Toyota Gazoo Racing car he shares with Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima. I think it was a nice debut, denitely, said Alonso. We nished second in qualifying, but we started in rst position so it was nice to hear the national anthem there before the race in front of everyone. Denitely I think the trafc management and the race itself, how it develops and how quickly it changes with the safety cars and things like that, you need to be ready for anything. Alonso, along with teammates Buemi and Nakajima, took a maximum 26-point score at Spa to make a perfect start to their WEC Super Season campaign. That result was Toyotas 17th win from 49 WEC races, its fourth consecutive victory and its third at Spa. Toyota leads both the team and driver World Championships going into the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 16-17. The race began under blue skies and Buemi made a clean getaway from pole position in the No. 8, gradu ally extending his advantage over the chasing Rebellions.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com to be sandbagging because they could.Ž Kevin Magnussen took a superb sixth for Haas, ahead of local heroes Fernando Alonso in the McLaren and Carlos Sainz in the Renault. Romain Grosjean in the second Haas completed the top ten. All the front-runners progressed from Q2 on the soft tire, meaning they will start todays race on that more durable rubber, rather than the quicker supersoft compound. Ferrari hadnt given much away in the three practice sessions but they began to show their true speed in Q1, with Vettel three-tenths quicker than Verstappen. Mercedes were unable to break into the top four in the opening phase, with Hamilton the quicker of the two Silver Arrows in “fth but 0.602 seconds behind the pacesetter. Haas have been in impressive form all weekend and both their cars made the top ten in the “rst phase, as did Spanish favourites Sainz and Alonso. But Sainzs team mate Nico Hulkenberg was the big faller in Q1. The German narrowly missed the cut after he only managed a single ”ying lap following an apparent fuel pressure issue on his Renault. Also eliminated were Saubers Marcus Ericsson and Williams Sergey Sirotkin, the latter carrying a three-place grid penalty thanks to his collision with Sergio Perez in Baku. Brendon Hartley did not take part after Toro Rosso could not “x his car in time following his heavy FP3 crash, and Lance Stroll was the “nal Q1 faller, the Canadian ending his day in the gravel after spinning at Turn 12 at the close of the session. The “rst segment saw all the drivers end on supersoft rubber but, with an eye on the race, there was a switch of strategy when the action got back underway. Red Bull, Mercedes and Ferrari all opted to send their men back out on soft tires. And again, the Prancing Horse replicated their advantage with Vettel leading the way in Q2 and team mate Raikkonen two-tenths behind. This time the Mercedes duo were able to “nish the session ahead of the Red Bull pair of Verstappen and Ricciardo, who were split by Kevin Magnussen in the Haas. It was Bottas who led the way for the Silver Arrows … trailing the pacesetter by three-tenths … and he was joined in moving through to the “nal phase by the other Haas of Romain Grosjean, Sainz and Alonso. But Q2 was a bad one for Force India, who lost Esteban Ocon and Perez in 13th and 15th respectively. McLarens Stoffel Vandoorne „ who has been out-quali“ed by Alonso at the last eight races „ Toro Rossos Pierre Gasly and Saubers Charles Leclerc were the others to miss out on the pole position shootout. Hamilton was “rst to lay down the gauntlet in Q3, but it was Red Bull and not Ferrari who were the nearest challengers on the “rst run. But that changed on the second with both Ferraris improving. Vettel was the quickest of the two, 0.132s behind the pole-sitter, while Verstappen out-quali“ed team mate Ricciardo for the third time this season. So advantage Mercedes then. They locked out the front row on this track in 2014, 2015 and 2016 „ and have done so again this year. Hamilton said the track was de“nitely different from last year after it was repaved. It is great that we are faster but it has a different characteristic than we had in the past but thats not necessarily a bad thing,Ž he said. We drive here a lot in practice and obviously with the rest every year so it is kind of neat that the track gains new characteristics as you go through the years. I dont really know why every track is different when they resurface it. I dont know if its less expensive tarmac bitumen that they use or expensive stuff or not expensive stuff, I dont know. It varies from track to track but I guess thats what makes it exciting.ŽLEWISFROM PAGE 1 MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS MOTORSPORT PHOTOValtteri Bottas qualied second for todays Spanish Grand Prix.

Males are very aggressive and territorial and will not tolerate any encroachment in their mating areas. Any shallow body of water will have dangerous gators so be alert and constantly scan areas youre inƒoften. Gators will be forced out of lakes by bigger males and will be searching for non-disputed waters. Expect them in your pools and other waterways. Therefore gators will be where they usually are not, so scan areas for gator activity. Note: Super Moon Periods, whether during the full or new moon phases, causes an exceptionally high level of the suns energy during lunar-interruption periods. One of the subsequent results is a very high level of predatory feeding behavior among wildlife and “sh. For this reason keep an extra eye out for gators this week and during the super new moon periods of June and July. Lightning storms are always a real lethal threat when the rainy season starts. Always have an escape plan off the lake to a vehicle or building „ not a tree. If you get caught on the lake, get at low as possible in the boat and leave motors in the water. Check your bilge pumps and make sure you have life vests accessible before you launch. Istokpoga.info News: The lake level is at 38.65 feet above sea level, which is the max-level in the 12-inch management-threshold range for the middle of May. The minimum level is 37.50 feet currently and will remain at this annual low mark until July when it is raised six inches over a sixweek period. The maximum level will be dropped this month to 38.25 feet by June 1 „ an additional “ve inches from todays level. This seasonal rain-buffer schedule is necessary because the lake “lls six times faster than water is able to be released during major rain events and extended rainy periods.

Strader of Spring City, Tennessee, is vying for back-to-back B.A.S.S. tournament victories after his win last week in the Berkley Bassmaster Elite at Kentucky Lake presented by Abu Garcia. When its going your way its going your way,Ž Strader said. Im in disbelief, I only had seven hours to practice, and I caught a 6-pound bass on the “rst cast.Ž Strader brought a tournament-best 17 pounds, 6 ounces to the scales, after weighing 13-13 on Thursday, which had him in sixth place. Im “shing a shad spawn in a current-driven area, and I had my weight by 10 a.m. both days,Ž Strader said. I could go out tomorrow and not catch one out of that area, but I feel like I have a backup plan.Ž Strader is employing the same spinnerbait that he won with at Kentucky Lake. I caught all of my “sh, but one, on my 5/8-ounce signature series Zorro Bango Blade, the exact color, and blade combination.Ž Straders 17-6 limit, which included one spotted bass, gave him a two-day total of 31-3. Behind Straders momentum is fellow Elite Series pro Jared Lintner. The Arroyo Grande, California, angler weighed 14-6 for a twoday total of 26-1. Hes 5 pounds, 2 ounces behind Strader. Its tough to beat a guy with momentum like (Strader),Ž Lintner said. I only had one bass at 11:30 today.Ž Though Lintner is not sight “shing, he noted that seeing the bass during the latter part of the day has been key for his pattern. When the sun gets directly overhead, you get a little bit of a shade line,Ž he said. Its not that I can pinpoint them. But when you get a bite, its a good one. Im covering a lot of water. Im going out and grinding it out; Im not “shing for a 7-pound limit of spotted bass.Ž After having one of two 15-pound limits during the opening round, Cody Pike fell from second to third place, with 9-7. The bass just did not want to bite for me today,Ž Pike said. I had “ve or six good “sh follow my bait out, they just would not commit.Ž Whitney Stephens of Waverly, Ohio, is in fourth place with 24-12, and Garrett Paquette of Canton, Michigan, is in “fth place with 24-5. Leading the co-angler standings is Rodney Tapp of North Augusta, S.C., with 14-15. Austin Bonjour of Templeton, California, is second with 14-5, and Chad Smith of Minnetonka, Minnesota, is third with 13-12. The new leader of the Phoenix Boats Big Bass Award for the tournament is Allen Brooks of Canton, Georgia, with a 6-pound, 5-ounce largemouth. Bonjour is tied with Paul Coburn, of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, with a 5-pound, 5-ounce largemouth for the lead of the Phoenix Boats Big Bass on the co-angler side. The Top 12 pro and co-anglers advanced to Championship Saturday. Final results were not available at press time.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comAudi Sport customer racing celebrating 10th anniversaryAudi Sport customer racing is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Following the presentation of the “rst generation of the Audi R8 LMS in 2008, the “rst customers relied on the GT3 sports car the following season „ and immediately clinched three driver championship titles. To date, the number of these successes has increased to 52 around the world, plus other class titles have been won and victories scored in 12-, 24and even 25-hour races. Audi Sport customer racing has by now built 531 race cars for international customers. Audi Sport customer racing today is experiencing the largest model offensive in its history,Ž says Michael-Julius Renz, managing director of Audi Sport GmbH. In 2018 were aiming for our “fth overall victory in the worlds biggest endurance race, the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. The race is under the banner of our anniversary which were celebrating with the customers, fans and friends of our company.Ž Thirty-three race cars from the current model range are deployed to three classes at the Nurburgring. While the GT3 version of the Audi R8 LMS is battling for overall victory, the Audi R8 LMS GT4 and the Audi RS 3 LMS are competing for class wins. At the same time, the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup entrants are relying on both versions of the Audi R8 LMS, whereas seven Audi RS 3 LMS cars will be on the WTCR … FIA World Touring Car Cup grid. The “rst two overall victories in the iconic endurance race at the Nurburgring in 2012 and 2014 were achieved by the “rst generation of the Audi R8 LMS that won the 24-hour race at Spa in 2011, 2012 and 2014 as well. During its seven-year model cycle, 137 race cars were built for the Asian, Australian, European, North and South American markets. The race car is still popular and successful in classes for cars of older generations such as those in Australian club sport. All owners bene“t from a global service network and comprehensive parts supply. In 2011, Audi Sport customer racing extended its program by a model for a small but mighty niche. Customers at the Nurburgring and in various club sport series were provided with the Audi TT RS, a powerful car with 380 horsepower, front-wheel drive and excellent handling qualities. In addition to a large number of class victories in Europe and in the United States, the race car in 2011 scored overall victory in a race of the VLN Endurance Championship Nurburgring against cars with clearly higher power ratings. In 2013, on clinching victory against high-caliber GT sports cars in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in California, the Audi TT RS achieved its greatest success. In 2015, the brand with the four rings presented two new race cars. For three years, the Audi TT cup car was the exclusive model “elded in the Audi Sport TT Cup. The second generation of the Audi R8 LMS delivering up to 585 hp, set standards in terms of safety and continues the string of success of the “rst model unchanged. Endurance racing victories at Daytona, the Nurburgring, at Spa, Bathurst, Sepang and Laguna Seca, plus championship wins around the globe underscore its qualities. One hundred and three race cars of this model have been built to date. It shares 50 percent of its component assemblies with the production model including the low-maintenance and high-powered V10 engine. At the next stage of its model offensive, Audi Sport customer racing launched the Audi RS 3 LMS at the end of 2016. The front-wheel-drive race car for the popular TCR category delivers up to 257 kW (350 hp). Like the Audi TT cup this model is built within the corporate group together with Cupra at the Martorell site in Spain. 166 units of this entry level touring car that won “ve titles in its “rst season have been made to date. The most recent addition to the range is the Audi R8 LMS GT4. A one-two class win in the 24 Hours of Dubai marked a brilliant start to the season in January, 2018. In the “rst six months, Audi Sport has produced 65 of these models. The Audi R8 LMS GT4 is made at Bollinger Hofe using the same manufacturing facilities as the production model with which it shares 60 percent of its components. The interest by our customers and their successes show that our model offensive is paying off,Ž says Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. In the current season alone, our teams have contested 158 races across all classes and celebrated 53 victories in the process. Were proud of having such strong teams and drivers among our customers in a “ercely competitive environment.Ž In addition to the events contested by its customers, Audi Sport customer racing competes in the Intercontinental GT Challenge, the FIA GT World Cup and the WTCR … FIA World Touring Car Cup. The brand also supports individual teams in largescale individual events such as the 24-hour races at the Nurburgring and at Spa.SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN AUDI SPORT COMMUNICATIONS PHOTOThe No. 25 Audi R8 LMS of Audi Sport Team Saintloc on its way to winning last years 24 Hours of Spa.

During the caution, Alonso took over the No. 8 for his “rst WEC race laps. His “rst task when the race resumed was to defend the lead from the No. 1 Rebellion, which he did via a spectacular passing move on several GT cars on the Kemmel Straight. His stint was interrupted by a full course yellow but when the track was green he took advantage and built a substantial lead before handing over to Kazuki just before half distance. The No. 8 made an immediate return to pit lane to adjust Kazukis seat belts and lost more time soon after with a harmless spin at turn one. The two Toyotas pulled away from the “eld, with Alonso preparing to take the No. 8 to the checkered ”ag with a lead of around one minute over the No. 7 Toyota, but another safety car closed the gap to just six seconds with 50 minutes remaining. Alonso stayed at the wheel through a “nal fuel stop with 25 minutes to go, after which the team chose to hold positions and avoid any unnecessary risks. The whole weekend has been amazing in terms of team performance,Ž Alonso said. There have been a lot of preparations with the winter testing and all the work back at the factory but we have to come to the race and deliver the result. We executed the race in the best way we could and I am extremely happy to win my “rst endurance race. Sbastien and Kazuki made my life a little bit easier so thanks to them.Ž The Spaniard described how he savored the special WEC podium atmosphere, saying: I was telling the guys, Kazuki and Sebastien, this is so nice to feel the podium.

The Islamic State group claimed the attacker as one of its soldiers.Ž Counterterrorism authorities took charge of the investigation, and President Emmanuel Macron vowed that France would not bow to extremists despite being the target of multiple deadly attacks in recent years. Paris police of“cers evacuated people from some buildings in the Right Bank neighborhood after the attack, which happened on Rue Monsigny at about 9 p.m. Bar patrons and opera-goers described surprise and confusion in the immediate area. Beyond the police cordon, however, crowds still “lled nearby cafes and the citys night life resumed its normal pace soon after the attack.Paris stabbings investigated as terror attack, claimed by ISBy ELAINE GANLEYASSOCIATED PRESSSEOUL, South Korea „ North Korea said Saturday that it will dismantle its nuclear test site in less than two weeks, in a dramatic event that would set up leader Kim Jong Uns summit with President Donald Trump next month. In a statement carried by state media, North Koreas Foreign Ministry said that all of the tunnels at the countrys northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion, and that observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed. Kim had already revealed plans to shut down the test site by the end of May during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month. Analysts say that while the closure of the site is important, it doesnt represent a material step toward full denuclearization. A ceremony for dismantling the nuclear test ground is now scheduled between May 23 and 25,Ž depending on weather conditions, the Foreign Ministrys statement said. It said the North will invite journalists from the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain to witness the dismantling process. The journalists will be provided with a charter ”ight from Beijing to the North Korean coastal city of Wonsan, from where they will travel by train to the test site, the statement said. The ministry said the North will continue to promote close contacts and dialogue with the neighboring countries and the international society so as to safeguard peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and over the globe.Ž Following the Moon-Kim summit, Moons of“ce said Kim was willing to disclose the process to international experts, but the Norths statement Saturday didnt include any mention about allowing experts on the site. South Korea had no immediate response to the statement.

The West Coast is home to an 800-mile chain of 13 volcanoes, from Washington states Mount Baker to Californias Lassen Peak. They include Mount St. Helens, whose spectacular 1980 eruption in the Paci“c Northwest killed dozens of people and sent volcanic ash across the country, and massive Mount Rainier, which towers above the Seattle metro area. Theres lots of anxiety out there,Ž said Liz Westby, geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Washington, in the shadow of Mount St. Helens. They see destruction, and people get nervous.Ž Kilauea, on Hawaiis Big Island, is threatening to blow its top in coming days or weeks after sputtering lava for a week, forcing about 2,000 people to evacuate, destroying two dozen homes and threatening a geothermal plant. Experts fear the volcano could hurl ash and boulders the size of refrigerators miles into the air.WHAT IS THE RING OF FIRE?Roughly 450 volcanoes make up this horseshoe-shaped belt with Kilauea situated in the middle. The belt follows the coasts of South America, North America, eastern Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Its known for frequent volcanic and seismic activity caused by the colliding of crustal plates.

The U.S.Geological Survey said minor lava spatter erupted from the new fissure Saturday morning, which brings the total number of fissures to 16. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports the fissure opened 1 mile northeast of the last fissure and east of the Puna Geothermal Venture plant. No significant lava flow has been reported so far. Plant workers this week removed the 50,000 gallons of pentane stored at the site as a precaution. Geologists warn that the Kilauea volcano could shoot out large boulders and ash out of its summit crater. President Donald Trump on Friday declared a major disaster exists on the Big Island.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the death toll from attacks early Thursday has risen from 23 to 27, including at least 11 Iranians and six Syrian soldiers, including three of“cers. In total, 42 people, including 19 Iranians, were killed over two days of strikes „ from Tuesday to Thursday „ according to the Observatory. The escalation between Israel and Iran has raised fears the region may be sliding into an unprecedented direct confrontation between the two archenemies. Israels defense minister called on Syrias President Bashar Assad on Friday to clear his country of Iranian forces based there „ warning that their presence will only bring more trouble to the already war-ravaged country. Avigdor Liebermans comments were followed by threats from an Iranian cleric that Tel Aviv or Haifa would be in danger if Israel did anything foolish.Ž Israel had said its strikes on Thursday were in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date. It said it hit targets near the capital, in southern and central Syria, targeting weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy “re and that none of its warplanes were hit. Syrian state-run media had said that Israel struck a military outpost near the capital Damascus late Tuesday, adding that its air defenses intercepted and destroyed two of the incoming missiles. The Observatory said at least 15 were killed in the strike, eight of them Iranians, including a member of the Irans elite Revolutionary Guards. Israel had previously warned that Iran has been deploying its allied militias in the area. Iran says Israels repeated attacks are based on fabricatedŽ reasons. Separately, the Syrian staterun al-Ikhariya TV and the Observatory said airstrikes Saturday hit civilians in an Islamic State-controlled village in the northern Hassakeh province. The Observatory said eight members of the same family, including three children and “ve women, were killed. Al-Ikhbariya put the death toll from the strikes at nine, including four children. State-run TV said they were carried out by the U.S-led coalition, which is operating in the area against IS. An airstrike in the same area earlier this month killed at least 23 civilians. The coalition at the time said it was not aware of airstrikes by its warplanes in the area.Monitor: 42 killed by Israeli strikes in Syria this weekASSOCIATED PRESS SANA VIA APThis photo released on Wednesday, by the Syrian ocial news agency SANA, shows ames rising after an attack in an area known to have numerous Syrian army military bases, in Kisweh, south of Damascus, Syria. BAGHDAD „ Polls have closed across Iraq Saturday evening in the “rst national election since the country declared victory over the Islamic State group. The vote „ the fourth since the 2003 U.S.-led toppling of Saddam Hussein „ was marked by reports of low turnout and irregularities. Results are expected within the next 48 hours according to the independent body that oversees Iraqs election, but negotiations to choose a prime minister tasked with forming a government are expected to drag on for months. Voting began early Saturday morning in a contest that had no clear front-runner after weeks of of“cial campaigning. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadis stiffest competition came from political parties with closer ties to Iran. Baghdads streets began to “ll up with cars before voting concluded Saturday evening after al-Abadi partially lifted a security curfew in an effort to improve turnout. Nearly all civilian vehicles had been banned from Baghdads streets Saturday morning and many voters complained of having to walk more than 2.5 miles to reach polling stations. Iraqs most senior Shiite cleric spoke out on the issue of voter participation Saturday afternoon, encouraging Iraqis to vote to prevent the arrival of a corrupt parliament.Ž The lack of participation will give the opportunity for others to reach parliament and they will be very far from the aspirations of the people,Ž said Sheikh Abdul-Mahdi al-Karbalai, the representative of Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, on local Iraqi television from Karbala. Sistani has repeatedly encouraged Iraqis to vote into power Saturday a new political class to combat corruption. In Mosul, turnout appeared to be higher with over 40 percent of eligible voters casting their ballots at polling stations across the city, according to the deputy commander of Nineveh operation command, Brig. Gen. Jassem Mohammed Khalil. For those who did attempt to vote, some in Baghdad complained of voting irregularities at polling stations linked to a new electronic voting system implemented for the “rst time this year in an effort to reduce fraud. Nouri al-Maliki, al-Abaids predecessor and arguably his most powerful opponent, said he was aware of violationsŽ at some polling stations in Iraq, adding that the process lacked proper oversight. We are not reassured,Ž al-Maliki told the Associated Press in a phone interview. Thamer Aref, 45, along with his wife and daughter were turned away from a polling station north of central Baghdad. Aref had turned in his old voter ID card months ago for the biometric identi“cation card required by the new system. However, Arefs biometric card wasnt ready ahead of Saturday and, with neither card, the polling station did not allow him to a cast a ballot. Associated Press journalists documented several similar cases at a number of different polling stations across Baghdad Saturday morning. Amira Muhammed, the supervisor of a polling station in Azamiyah, Baghdad, said some people couldnt vote because they did not pick up their new biometric ID cards in time. A member of Iraqs electoral commission also de”ected blame for Saturdays reported irregularities. There were some problems with the electronic equipment due to misuse by some employees,Ž Hazem al-Ridini told the AP. In central Baghdad, voters supporting al-Abadi said they are doing so because they give him credit for Iraqs military victory over IS. Al-Abadi took revengeŽ for civilians killed in insurgent attacks in Iraq with the victory over Daesh,Ž said 71-year-old Felihah Hassan, using the Arabic acronym for IS. After IS overran nearly a third of Iraq in the summer of 2014, the group launched waves of suicide bombings targeting civilians in Baghdad and other pockets of government-controlled territory. With support from the U.S.-led coalition and Iran, al-Abadi oversaw a grueling war against the extremists and declared victory over the group in December. Despite al-Abadis military achievements, Iraq continues to struggle with an economic downturn sparked in part by a drop in global oil prices, entrenched corruption and years of political gridlock. In addition to al-Maliki, al-Abadis most powerful competition is from an alliance of candidates with close ties to the countrys powerful, mostly Shiite paramilitary forces, and an alliance led by in”uential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.Polls close across Iraq in first vote since victory over ISBy QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA and PHILIP ISSAASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOAn Iraqi woman shows her ink-stained nger after casting her vote in the countrys parliamentary elections in Ramadi, Iraq, Saturday.

The Islamic State groups Aamaq news agency said in a statement early Sunday that the assailant carried out the attack in response to the groups calls for supporters to target members of the U.S.-led military coalition squeezing the extremists out of Iraq and Syria. The Aamaq statement did not provide evidence for its claim or details on the assailants identity. Frances military has been active in the coalition since 2014, and Islamic State adherents have killed more than 200 people in France in recent years, including the 130 who died in the coordinated November 2015 attacks in Paris. President Emmanuel Macron tweeted his praise for police who neutralized the terroristŽ and said France is once again paying the price of blood but will not cede an inch to enemies of freedom.Ž Paris police said the attacker in Saturdays stabbings was armed with a knife and targeted “ve people in the 2nd arrondissement, or district, killing one and seriously injuring two. The other two suffered less serious injuries. The attack occurred near many bars and theaters, as well as the opera. Frances BFM television interviewed an unnamed witness in a restaurant who said a young woman was at the entrance when a man arrived and attacked her with a knife.Ž A friend came to her aid and the attacker left, hitting on all the doors, all the shops,Ž the witness told BFM.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb denounced the odious attack.ŽPARISFROM PAGE 1 BUJUMBURA, Burundi „ Twenty-six people were killed and seven others wounded in an attack by an unidenti“ed terrorist groupŽ in rural Burundi, the countrys security minister said Saturday. The attack came shortly before Burundians vote May 17 in a controversial referendum that could extend the presidents term. It was not immediately clear if the attack was related, although some activists said they believe it was. Speaking at the scene, Security Minister Alain Guillaume Bunyoni told reporters that 24 people were killed in their homes Friday night and two others died of their wounds at a local hospital. He gave no further details about the attack in Ruhagarika community in the northwestern province of Cibitoke. One survivor told The Associated Press the attackers came around 10 p.m. and attacked households and set “re on houses.Ž Some victims were hacked with machetes and others were shot or burned alive, she said. Her husband and two children were killed, she said. She spoke on condition of anonymity, citing safety concerns. A police of“cer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to a reporter, said four of the families targeted were headed by people he called police agents.Ž (The attackers) said when leaving, Where are those you trust to rescue you?Ž he said. Activists expressed concern. This is extra-judiciary killings. What one can ask is this: Do we have to see innocent people killed whenever elections are near in Burundi?Ž said Gerard Hakizimana, leader of a pro-democracy civic group known as Folucon F. President Pierre Nkuruniza, on Twitter, urged unity in the East African nation and said those who carried out the attack would be pursued and punished. Burundi has seen deadly political violence since early 2015 when Nkurunziza successfully pursued a disputed third term. He later survived a coup attempt led by senior army and police of“cers, including some who ”ed and announced they had launched a rebel group against the government. An estimated 1,200 people, including ruling party supporters, have died in sporadic violence since April 2015, according to the United Nations, with most of the killings blamed on the authorities and their allies. Now Burundians are being asked to vote on a proposal to extend the presidents term from “ve years to seven, which would allow Nkurunziza to rule for another 14 years when his current term expires in 2020. Campaigns ahead of the referendum have been marred by hate speech, with one ruling party of“cial sent to prison after he called for those who oppose the referendum to be drowned. The United States earlier this month denounced violence, intimidation, and harassmentŽ against those thought to oppose the referendum and expressed concern about the non-transparent processŽ of changing the constitution. Human Rights Watch has noted widespread impunityŽ for authorities and their allies, including the ruling partys youth wing, as they try to swing the vote in the presidents favor. Many in Burundi, a poor country that still relies heavily on foreign aid, worry that a new round of bloodshed will follow the referendum no matter its results. Already more than 400,000 people have ”ed the country since April 2015, according to the U.N. Nkurunziza, a former rebel leader, rose to power in 2005 following the end of Burundis civil war that killed about 300,000 people. He was re-elected unopposed in 2010 after the opposition boycotted. He said he was eligible for a third term in 2015 because lawmakers, not the general population, chose him for his “rst term.26 people killed in Burundi terrorist attackBy ELOGE WILLY KANEZAASSOCIATED PRESS JOHANNESBURG „ The U.S. military says the head of Special Operations Command Africa has suspended a regional commander and an enlisted adviser over alleged misconduct and sent them back to the United States.

The U.S. has about 1,000 special operations personnel in Africa. Those in East Africa largely assist in countering the Somalia-based al-Shabab extremist group. Spokeswoman Lt.

Maxwell did not give details about the alleged misconduct, citing the ongoing investigation.US military suspends 2 special operations members in AfricaASSOCIATED PRESS HUMACAO, Puerto Rico „ A social worker, Lisel Vargas, recently visited Don Gregorio at his storm-damaged home in the steep hillsides of Humacao, a city on Puerto Ricos eastern coast near where Category 4 Hurricane Maria struck last September. Gregorio, a 62-year-old former carpenter who lives alone, looked haggard. He said he had stopped taking his medication for depression more than a week earlier and hadnt slept in four days. He was feeling anxious and nervous, he said, rubbing his bald head and “dgeting with the silver watch on his wrist. His voice monotone and barely audible, he told Vargas he had thoughts of suicide. The overall suicide rate in Puerto Rico increased 29 percent in 2017, with a signi“cant jump after Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rico Department of Public Health reports, and that anguish is continuing. Gregorios descent from heartbroken but determined storm victim to this moment of despair is a path traveled by many older people here in Puerto Rico. Psychologists and social workers, like Vargas, say elderly people are especially vulnerable when their daily routines are disrupted for long periods. Those who were once active, she said, now stay home alone. Before, they used to watch television, they would watch their novellas, hear the radio,Ž Vargas said. That predictability of TV shows and church groups or seeing friends regularly imbues life with meaning and order. Because they feel depressed, they dont have that desire to keep that routine of sharing in the community,Ž she said. In the weeks following the late September storm, Gregorio said, he cried all day, every day. Then, he got to work, clearing the broken branches and helping his neighbors. But as the months wore on and his church „ the organizing force of his day „ remained closed, his regular church groups couldnt meet and many of the people he saw every day moved to the United States. He went six months without electricity and missed the nightly routine of watching the local news. Now, he said, he feels listless and forlorn. I cant do anything. Like about two months that I havent been able to do anything,Ž he said. Im not motivated.Ž So he sits, much of the day, along the driveway. He reads his Bible and prepares canned food for dinner and goes to bed early. We have elderly people who live alone, with no power, no water and very little food,Ž said Adrian Gonzalez, chief operating of“cer at Castaner General Hospital in Castaner, a small town in the islands central mountains. The loss of routine has created widespread anxiety among the elderly, he said. We have two in-house psychologists and right now their (schedules are) packed.Ž Dr. Angel Munoz, a clinical psychologist in Ponce, said people who care for older adults need to be trained to identify the warning signs of suicide. Many of these elderly people either live alone or are being taken care of by neighbors,Ž said Munoz. They are not even relatives.Ž Back in Humacao, the church has tried to bring back its slate of activities, but Gregorio said he often doesnt feel like going. Many of the people he once spent time with left Puerto Rico after the storm. Standing on the hillside behind his house and surveying his banana and breadfruit trees that are regrowing, Gregorio said, I would like to leave too. I pray that God can take me out of this house because Ive lived in the same place for 62 years.Ž He recently called his sister in Jacksonville, Fla., and asked if he could move in with her. She said, No, you cant live with me,Ž he said, tearing up.Some older storm survivors in Puerto Rico consider suicideBy SARAH VARNEYKAISER HEALTH NEWS Authorities: Man repeatedly stabs young son during standoff Autopsy: Pilot in fatal copter crash had fentanyl in system 1 hurt in propane tank explosion at Chicagos Soldier FieldNORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. (AP) „ A Pennsylvania man repeatedly stabbed and critically injured his 4-year-old son during a standoff with police that ended when of“cers stormed the home, authorities said Saturday. North Versailles police had initially gone to the home just before 10 p.m. Friday when Syneca Ashley Sr., 28, and the childs mother were involved in a nonviolent domestic dispute. The woman soon left the residence, leaving the boy with his father. But she called 911 about 30 minutes later and said Ashley had called her and threatened to kill the child. Police then returned to the home, but Ashley refused to speak with them and barricaded himself inside the residence. An Allegheny County SWAT team was called in, but authorities said Ashley became markedly more agitated as negotiations continued overnight and made continuous threats to hurt and/or kill the child. Ashley became irate around 3:20 a.m. Saturday and the child could be heard screaming and being struck. The SWAT team then entered the home, got the child to safety and arrested Ashley without further incident. The child had multiple stab wounds to the chest and was ”own to a hospital. He was listed in critical but stable condition. He is expected to survive, authorities said. The father was charged ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) „ A helicopter pilot had a low concentration of fentanyl in his blood during a crash in New Mexico that killed him and four other people including Zimbabwean opposition leader Roy Bennett, according to autopsy results obtained on Friday. Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid and pain medication, was found in the autopsy report for Jamie Coleman Dodd, the lead pilot in the January crash in northeastern New Mexico. The report didnt say whether Dodd may have been taking fentanyl for health reasons. Prior reports have not indicated that drugs were a cause of the crash. Autopsies also were performed on co-pilot Paul Cobb, and wealthy businessman Charles Burnett III „ also killed in the crash on a grassy mesa top east of Raton. All three men died of blunt force trauma. Burns also were a cause of death for Burnett. Bennetts wife, Heather, also died in the crash. Cobb had no drugs in his system, while Burnett had alcohol, amphetamine and oxycodone present in his, medical examiners determined. CHICAGO (AP) „ A man has been treated for smoke inhalation after a propane tank exploded during an event at Chicagos Soldier Field. The Chicago Tribune reports the Saturday afternoon incident occurred at a tent where the 60-yearold man was working. It sent smoke billowing into the air and prompted of“cials to urge people to evacuate. A police spokesman says the man is in good condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. No other injuries have been reported. Eighteen-year-old Dyamond Jones was volunteering at the Autism Speaks Walk at Soldier Field when he said he saw a small grease “re start on a grill inside a food tent.

It wasnt known Saturday if he had retained an attorney. North Versailles is about 14 miles east of Pittsburgh. The sole survivor of the crash, Andra Cobb, of Texas, later recounted her experience, saying the aircraft hit the ground with a loud bang before rolling forward, stopping upside down and bursting into ”ames. A report by the National Transportation Safety Board con“rmed that the weather was clear the night of the crash, and that Dodd had thousands of hours of ”ying experience.

On this date In 1568 forces loyal to Mary, Queen of Scots were defeated by troops under her half-brother and Regent of Scotland, the Earl of Moray, in the Battle of Langside, thwarting Marys attempt to regain power almost a year after she was forced to abdicate. In 1607 English colonists arrived by ship at the site of what became the Jamestown settlement in Virginia (the colonists went ashore the next day). In 1846 the United States declared that a state of war already existed with Mexico. In 1917 three shepherd children reported seeing a vision of the Virgin Mary near Fatima, Portugal; it was the first of six such apparitions that the children claimed to have witnessed.

(AP) „ A family of raccoons created a chaotic scene when they fell through a ceiling and into the living room of a Michigan home. The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that a homeowner in Sheridan Township sought help Friday after the raccoons fell from an attic. Police and “re“ghters easily picked up the four baby raccoons, but the mother eluded capture. She bit a responders gloves before hiding in a closet. The Albion Department of Public Safety posted video of the response on its Facebook page. Police said in a statement that a dog catcher pole was used to collar the raccoon. No people or animals were injured in the incident. The raccoons were taken away and released into the wild.ODD NEWS Raccoon family drops through ceiling in homeFROM PAGE ONEthe West Coast, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Besides Kilauea, they include: Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier in Washington; Mount Hood and South Sister in Oregon; and Mount Shasta and Lassen Volcanic Center in California. Images of lava ”owing from the ground and homes going up in ”ames in Hawaii have stoked unease among residents elsewhere along the Ring of Fire. But experts say an eruption on one section of the arc doesnt necessarily signal danger in other parts. These are isolated systems,Ž Westby said.WHEN WILL THE WEST COAST VOLCANOES ERUPT?No eruption seems imminent, experts say. The Cascades Volcano Observatory monitors volcanoes in the Paci“c Northwest and posts weekly status reports. All currently register normal.Ž But the situation can change fast. All our mountains are considered active and, geologically speaking, things seem to happen in the Northwest about every 100 years,Ž said John Ufford, preparedness manager for the Washington Emergency Management Division. Its an inexact timeline.Ž Some geologists believe Mount St. Helens is the most likely to erupt. But six other Cascade volcanoes have been active in the past 300 years, including steam eruptions at Mount Rainier and Glacier Peak and a 1915 blast at Lassen Peak that destroyed nearby ranches.WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE COULD THEY DO?The Big Island scenes of rivers of lava snaking through neighborhoods and sprouting fountains are unlikely in the Paci“c Northwest. Lava is not the hazard, per se, like in Hawaii,Ž said Ian Lange, a retired University of Montana geology professor. Cascade volcanoes produce a thicker, more viscous type of lava than Hawaiian volcanoes, so it doesnt run as far, Lange said. The Cascade volcanoes can produce huge clouds of choking ash and send deadly mudslides into rivers and streams. Two of the most potentially destructive are Mount St. Helens, north of the Portland, Oregon, metro area, and 14,000-foot Mount Rainier, which is visible from the cities of Seattle and Tacoma. Mount Rainier eruptions in the distant past have caused destruction as far west as Puget Sound, some 50 miles away. The volcano hasnt produced a signi“cant eruption in the past 500 years. But it remains dangerous because of its great height, frequent earthquakes, active hydrothermal system, and 26 glaciers, experts said. An eruption on Mount Rainier could rapidly melt glaciers, triggering huge mud”ows „ called lahars „ that could reach the densely populated surrounding lowlands, Westby said. Another major danger from a Cascade volcano eruption would be large amounts of ash thrown into the air, where it could foul aircraft engines.WHAT ARE COMMUNITIES DOING TO PREPARE?The closest settlement to a West Coast volcano may be Government Camp, on Oregons Mount Hood. Lava could conceivably reach the town, but the greater threat is an eruption triggering a so-called pyroclastic ”ow, which is a fast-moving cloud of hot ash and gas, experts said. But Lange believes Californias Mount Shasta is the most dangerous, in part because it is surrounded by towns. The town of Mt. Shasta has numerous response plans for emergencies, including a volcano eruption, Police Chief Parish Cross said. But the plan for a volcano is pretty ”uid, he said. We dont know the size or scope of the event,Ž Cross said, including which direction the eruption would occur. This is not an issue in Orting, Washington, about 20 miles west of Mount Rainier. Orting would be directly in the path of a lahar, and local of“cials each year conduct drills in which children move from school to higher ground to escape the ”ow. Students usually take about 45 minutes to walk the 2 miles to higher ground, which should be fast enough to escape, of“cials said. Our concern is ice and snow melting rapidly on Mount Rainier,Ž said Chuck Morrison, a resident of the town of 7,600 who has long been involved in evacuation planning. We need a quick way off the valley ”oor.Ž Orting is the town most vulnerable to lahar damage from Mount Rainier, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Scientists say that in the worst case, a 30-foot-high lahar with the consistency of wet concrete could rumble through Orting at 50 mph if volcanic activity suddenly melted snow and ice on Rainier.VOLCANOFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTO/TED S. WARRENIn this Tuesday photo, a volcano evacuation route sign directs trac and pedestrians to an area of higher ground near Orting, Wash., should nearby Mount Rainier erupt or trigger a lahar mud ow. The eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has geologic experts along the West Coast warily eyeing the volcanic peaks in Washington, Oregon and California, including Rainier, that are part of the Pacic Oceans ring of re. of training that included lessons on what constitutes bullying, causes of the problem and how to manage such con”icts. Seniors were then invited to similar classes, held in English and Spanish, teaching them to alert staff or intervene themselves if they witness bullying. Signs and even place mats around the center now declare it a Bully Free Zone.Ž I think in the past I would have just stayed out of it,Ž said Mary Murphy, 86, a retired real estate agent who took the classes. Now I might be inclined to help.Ž Robin Bonifas, a social work professor at Arizona State University and author of the book Bullying Among Older Adults: How to Recognize and Address an Unseen Epidemic,Ž said existing studies suggest about 1 in 5 seniors encounters bullying. She sees it as an outgrowth of frustrations characteristic in communal settings, as well a re”ection of issues unique to getting older. Many elderly see their independence and sense of control disappear and, for some, becoming a bully can feel like regaining some of that lost power. It makes them feel very out of control,Ž Bonifas said, and the way they sort of get on top of things and make their name in this new world is intimidating, picking on people, gossiping.Ž There is far less recognition of bullying as a problem among seniors compared with young people. Even among those who have been called bullies, many are unaware how problematic their behavior is until its labeled. Campaigns around the country have sought to spread the word, including a booklet circulated last year by the National Center for Assisted Living. In the life cycle, it doesnt go away,Ž said Katherine Arnold, a member of the city Human Rights Commission in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, which created a public service announcement on its community-access station that included a portrayal of a man who was excluded from a card game and became the subject of gossip by other seniors. Theres really not a lot of escape.Ž Most senior bullying isnt physical but rather involves name-calling, rumors and exclusion, said Pamela Countouris, a longtime schoolteacher who now runs a Pittsburgh-based consultancy that offers training on bullying. Women constitute the bulk of the bullies Countouris encounters among seniors, a re”ection of lifespan disparities and the gender makeup of those who live at or participate in programs at senior facilities. Countouris business began with a focus on school bullying but now centers exclusively on seniors. In the next month alone, she has more than a dozen training sessions planned. After four years immersed in the wrath of older bullies, Countouris has heard all manner of stories. At a senior high-rise, a woman who saw herself as the queen of the parking garage would key the cars of those who crossed her. Elsewhere, laundry rooms became vicious places where the bullied had their detergent stolen and their clothes thrown on the ”oor. Bingo rooms so often devolved into battle“elds „ with lucky newcomers badgered and accused of cheating by veteran players „ she came to call it the devils game.Ž I didnt realize it was an underground society where people could be mean to each other,Ž Countouris said. In the worst cases, bullying goes far beyond bingo squabbles. Marsha Wetzel moved into a senior apartment complex in Niles, Illinois, after her partner of 30 years died and her partners family evicted her from the home the couple shared. At Glen St. Andrew Living Community, she said she was met with relentless bullying by residents mostly focused on her being a lesbian. One man hit Wetzels scooter with his walker and unleashed a barrage of homophobic slurs. A woman rammed her wheelchair into Wetzels table in the dining room and knocked it over, warning homosexuals will burn in hell.Ž In the mailroom, someone knocked her in the head, and in an elevator, she was spit on. Id just go in my room and barricade my door and just pray,Ž said Wetzel, now 70 and living at a senior complex in Chicago. I just felt like a slug, like I was nothing, like I wasnt even human.Ž Lambda Legal, which defends LGBTQ rights, took on Wetzels case and sued Glen St. Andrew, claiming Fair Housing Act violations. A federal judge dismissed the suit last year. An appeals court decision is pending. Wetzel had seen such bullying throughout her life. She dropped out of high school when she became a punching bag for the girls who learned she was a lesbian. As a senior, she said, it felt even more traumatic „ and the bullies even more vicious. She had a view of a cemetery from her window and would stare at it, thinking maybe only when she arrived there would she “nd peace. I felt like a person in a pool of piranhas,Ž she said.BULLIESFROM PAGE 1 held June 12 in Singapore. Seoul, which shuttled between Washington and Pyongyang to set up the Trump-Kim meeting, has said Kim has genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic bene“ts. However, there are lingering doubts about whether Kim would ever agree to fully relinquish the weapons he likely views as his only guarantee of survival. During their summit at a border truce village, Moon and Kim vaguely promised to work toward the complete denuclearizationŽ of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to veri“cation or timetables. North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of denuclearizationŽ that bears no resemblance to the American de“nition. The North has been vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan. Some experts believe Kim may try to drag out the process to wait out the Trump administration or seek a deal in which he gives away his intercontinental ballistic missiles but retains some of his shorter-range arsenal in return for a reduced U.S. military presence in the South. This could satisfy Trump but undermine the alliance between Washington and Seoul. Kim declared his nuclear force as complete in December, following North Koreas most powerful nuclear test to date in September and three ”ight tests of ICBMs designed to reach the U.S. mainland. North Korea announced at a ruling party meeting last month that it was suspending all tests of nuclear devices and ICBMs, as well as the plan to close the nuclear testing ground. Kim said during the meeting that the nuclear test sites mission had come to an endŽ because the North had completed the process of developing nuclear-capable intermediate-range missiles, ICBMs and other strike means. The North also said for the “rst time at the meeting that it had been conducting subcriticalŽ nuclear tests. These refer to experiments involving a subcritical mass of nuclear materials that allow scientists to examine the performance and safety of weapons without triggering a nuclear chain reaction and explosion. North Koreas reference to such activity is designed to communicate that even without underground testing, the country intends to maintain its nuclear arsenal and be a responsibleŽ steward of those weapons at the same time, said Andrea Berger, a senior analyst at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. Still, the closure of the underground testing site could be a useful precedent for Washington and Seoul as they proceed with the nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang, analysts say. Now that North Korea has accepted in principle that agreements should be veri“ed, U.S. negotiators should hold them to this standard for any subsequent agreement,Ž said Adam Mount, a senior defense analyst at the Federation of American Scientists. It will make it more dif“cult for Kim Jong Un to deny inspections now that he has placed them on the table.Ž North Korea has invited the outside world to witness the dismantling of its nuclear facilities before. In June 2008, international broadcasters were allowed to air the demolishing of a cooling tower at the Nyongbyon reactor site, a year after the North reached an agreement with the U.S. and four other nations to disable its nuclear facilities in return for an aid package worth about $400 million. But in September 2008, the North declared that it would resume reprocessing plutonium, complaining that Washington wasnt ful“lling its promise to remove the country from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. The administration of George W. Bush removed North Korea from the list in October 2008 after the country agreed to continue disabling its nuclear plant. However, a “nal attempt by Bush to complete an agreement to fully dismantle North Koreas nuclear weapons program collapsed that December when the North refused to accept U.S.-proposed veri“cation methods. The North went on to conduct its second nuclear test in May 2009.TUNNELSFROM PAGE 1

Well announce it in next weeks edition. heavily in an industry you know very well, especially if you expect great growth from it. It is indeed good to understand your holdings very well, but even if you have great confidence in them, they can disappoint you. Plenty of great companies have surprised many people, going out of business or declaring bankruptcy. Finally, you might end up too concentrated in one or a few holdings if they grow in value much faster than your other holdings „ with, for example, one company going from representing about 5 percent of your portfolio to making up 20 percent of it. Thats risky, as it leaves you vulnerable if disaster strikes. Companies do sometimes fail. They may end up in scandals. Great technologies become obsolete (think of typewriters and VCRs). Excellent managements give way to mediocre managements. Competitors show up and grab market share. When it comes to your hardearned dollars in stocks, dont put too many eggs in too few baskets. A good rule of thumb is to try not to let any holding make up more than 5 percent of your overall net worth.The Motley Fool TakeBooking ProfitsIn 1998, a travel website called Priceline.com debuted, featuring a Name Your Own PriceŽ service. While many dot-com era startups never reached profitability and failed, Priceline prospered. Today, it has rebranded itself Booking Holdings (Nasdaq: BKNG), which includes not just Priceline.com but also the Asia-based travel site Agoda, KAYAK, Rentalcars.com, restaurant reservation site OpenTable, and its biggest brand (and smartest purchase), Booking.com. The business of online travel and accommodations searching and booking has grown huge, and Booking is the world leader „ with 2017 revenue of $12.68 billion, up 18 percent over 2016. Management expects its double-digit growth trajectory to continue. Consolidation within the industry has put a huge portion of the overall online travel business in the hands of just a few companies. Booking Holdings does face challenges, as rising competition has led some to fear that hurdles to further revenue gains could prove difficult to overcome. Yet through smart acquisitions, the company has been able to answer past competitive threats. With solid economic conditions across much of the globe and a rising interest in travel, the outlook for the industry is bright, and Booking Holdings has established itself as a key growth leader. Its likely to hold on to that role for years to come and deserves consideration for a berth in your long-term portfolio. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Booking Holdings.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentApple RegretsMy dumbest investment was Apple „ yes, one of the worlds most valuable companies. I bought shares of it back when they were trading in the teens, held for several years while the stock moved sideways, and then sold when the stock moved into the $20s. I had originally bought into the company after my wife gave me an iPod for my birthday „ I was so impressed that I thought it would change the world. The shares have split 7-for-1 since then, too. Doh! „ R., online The Fool Responds: Lots of investors have regretted selling their shares of Apple over the years. The company may seem untouchable now, with its recent market value north of $800 billion, but it didnt always look that way. Apple was struggling in the 1990s, losing money and with low market share for its computers. The 1997 return of Steve Jobs (who had been ousted in 1985), along with the introduction of the iMac and the iPod in 1998 and 2001, respectively, marked a turnaround. Following the 2007 debut of the iPhone, things really took off. Since Apple went public on Dec. 12, 1980, its stock has soared more than 42,000 percent. Yet even today, investors dont fully agree on how well it will perform from here. You can ignore the stock splits, though: They do increase your number of shares, but they decrease the share price proportionately. Temper That TradingQIm thinking of investing in some volatile stocks. Would it be effective to sell them after they go up a bit and then buy them again after they drop, holding them for a few weeks or months at a time? „ S.L., Pleasanton, CaliforniaAThats risky. For best results when trying to build wealth through the stock market, aim to hang on for many years, not weeks. Remember, legendary investor Warren Buffett has said his favorite holding period is forever,Ž and that he would be fine if the stock market opened for trading only once a year.Some stocks will rise relentlessly for a stretch, and if you exited them, you could lose out on a lot of gains while waiting on the sidelines for a dip in price. Also, frequent trading will rack up lots of trading commissions. Even if youre paying just $5 per trade, trading 20 times a month will cost you $1,200 a year. Meanwhile, while gains from stocks held more than a year get a lower tax rate (15 percent for most of us), shorter-term gains are taxed at your ordinary income rate, which could top 30 percent. Its better to invest in companies you believe in, aiming to hang on for years. Otherwise, youre just guessing.***QI want to invest in fastgrowing stocks that are priced below $10 per share. Where should I start? „ J.C., Gainesville, FloridaADont focus on a stocks price. A $5 stock can be worth 50 cents (and may fall to that soon), while a $200 stock can be a bargain that will triple in value over several years. Seek healthy, profitable companies trading for less than their shares are worth, and be patient.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolWhen Too Much Is BadOne way that many investors set up their portfolios for trouble is by keeping too many of their dollars in too few investments. That can happen if youve accumulated gobs of shares of stock in the company you work for. Yes, its great when you can purchase it at a discount and when you can easily dollar-cost average, regularly buying more shares, no matter the price, in order to build a big stake over time. You probably know more about your employer than any other company, too, which gives you an edge. Too much of a good thing is still too much, though. Just think of Enron: When it imploded, it wiped out many employees savings. Remember that you already depend on your employer for all or most of your income. Its risky to depend on it for the bulk of your investments, too. You might also invest too 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

There are new questions, decisions and possibilities on this threshold of your life. You are capable of handling all of it, but it will require you to enlarge your philosophical perspective to include provisions for the new realities. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Its not so much that you remember what happened; its that you remember and so thats what happened. This is why its important to focus on the best and most helpful things that occur. They will be the memories you build on. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). How much optimism can you handle? The benets of a sunny attitude and rewards of consistently thinking the best of the situation will give you an outside tolerance level without robbing you of the humor that comes of a darker tone. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Its not a question of whats available to have (which is, of course, more than you need, more than is good for you, more than youre interested in). Rather, its a question of what is worth having. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Not all fears are scary in an immediate way. Some creep in out of the background over time and begin to take the form of monsters like regret, resentment and envy. Face mild fears now and youll keep them from growing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Anything that forces you to take a new vantage and explore what can be seen from that point can be considered a creativity aid. If it leads to more ideas, it will be good for your project.

And that thing you fear now will soon become just another thing youve mastered, as well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Learning of the purest kind doesnt oer grades. Instead, it gives a skill, some understanding, maybe even wisdom. These are the things youll get today for paying attention at the school of life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be a rank and order to adhere to. In all honesty, this is probably randomly assigned, as there are very few true meritocracies in the world. So if you denitely dont like how things are ranked, consider changing the ranking. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Before we have a reallife relationship experience with a person, theres a fantasy version to hold its place. This is why many who have met their heroes liked the relationship better before that meeting occurred. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youre trying to gure out how to do it faster. Consider doing half as much and then taking your time. It will not only be done faster; youll look cooler doing it. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (May 13).

The problem is, he wants a traditional wedding with bridesmaids and groomsmen, and I prefer a wedding at the courthouse. Im not good at planning parties, and we have almost no budget to work with. We will be paying for all of this out of pocket. We have a venue booked on a beach. However, the amount of planning thats going into this weeklong wedding/family vacation „ with all invitees attending „ is becoming too much. My future mother-in-law doesnt care for me, and dealing with her is stressful. My ance is not planning the wedding. I am, by default. I really dont want to do this, and we cant hire a wedding planner. Do you have any suggestions on how to compromise on this situation? „ WEDDED UN-BLISS IN TEXAS DEAR WEDDED UN-BLISS: There are solid reasons it is recommended that engaged couples have premarital counseling to work out any disagreements before the vows are spoken. Im suggesting it for you. Your celebration should be kept low-key and inexpensive, and you do not have to explain or apologize to anyone for it. I would like to caution you, however, to think twice about going through with this marriage. From where I sit, you will have a built-in mother-in-law problem because the woman doesnt like you, as well as an irresponsible husband who is unwilling to compromise. It doesnt take a crystal ball to predict that you will have some serious challenges to contend with. DEAR ABBY: Neighbor BillŽ has lived across the street for 30 years. Our kids grew up together, and we socialized at least once a month with him and his wife. Three years ago, she left him, and his daughter moved out of town. My wife and I were among the few who helped to support him emotionally. Bill is pleasant and presentable. The problem is, hes the cheapest man on the face of the Earth. We have almost identical well-paying professional jobs. My wife and I travel extensively, attend events, have new cars and eat well. Bill has a 20-year-old car he wont even pay to wash. He travels only when he can stay at a friends house, and must be hard-pressed to pay for anything. Hes kind of a leech in that he waits for invitations where he can get by on the cheap. This makes for a very dull and challenging companion. My wife is neutral, but it has really gotten to me. Her take is to just not invite Bill if it bothers me so much. Im willing to support him emotionally, but not nancially at the same time. Mutual friends agree with me. Your thoughts? „ JUST ABOUT OVER BILL DEAR JUST ABOUT OVER: My thought is that the friendship with Bill may have run its course. And if your neighbor should ask you why, tell him what you have shared with me „ that youre tired of footing the bill for Bill. DEAR READERS: Happy Mothers Day to mothers everywhere „ birth mothers, adoptive and foster mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers who are raising their grandchildren and dual-role dads. Orchids to all of you for the love you give each and every day! LOVE, ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. For an excellent guide to becoming a better conversationalist and a more sociable person, order How to Be Popular.Ž Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Shipping and handling are included in the price.)Dear Readers: Microber cloths have become indispensable and versatile cleaning tools in our houses. They make cleaning an easier job to tackle, particularly when wiping dust and grime o of computers and other high-tech equipment. But they do become dirty, so they need to be cleaned as well. Heres how: Wash them in soapy warm water in the washing machine, but dont include towels or anything else that produces lint. Lint will attach to the microber in the water and stay on the cloth. Dont add fabric softener or chlorine bleach because they can damage the cloths. Dry on low heat or air-dry. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I was using a pen, and sure enough, I got ballpoint ink on my blouse. How can I get it out? „ Kerry from Illinois Dear Kerry: Try this Heloise Hint to remove that nasty ink stain from your washable garments. Put the blouse on a dry towel, with the stained side down. Lightly dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol and gently dab the stain (do not rub it) to lift up the ink. Launder the blouse as you usually do. „ Heloise Dear Readers: If you have taken a wonderful spring hike, your boots probably are dirty and will need a good cleaning. Use these hints to get them ready for your next trek. 1. If the boots are just dusty, grab a shoe brush to remove the dust. 2. If the boots are muddy and wet, allow them to dry completely. Then use a soft-bristled brush to get rid of all the dried mud. Be sure to scrub the hidden areas and seams. Wipe o boots with water. 3. Air out the boots. Put several fabric-softener sheets inside to deodorize them. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Love to add buttermilk to biscuits and cakes? Do you ever wonder how much butter is actually in buttermilk? None! Today, buttermilk is made from skim or low-fat milk and thickened with a bacterial culture or acidier. Years ago, when butter was churned, the leftover liquid was buttermilk, which was then fermented. „ Heloise Dear Readers: After a party or celebration, it can be quite a task to hand-wash all the special glasses that cant go into a dishwasher. Sometimes they are still cloudy after washing. Try again, using this hint. Warm a good amount of full-strength vinegar and place the glasses in this vinegar bath. Allow them to soak for a while, and the cloudiness should disappear. However, if the cloudiness remains, the glasses could be permanently etched with tiny scratches. Rinse glasses with water and make certain that you dry the glasses right away with a lint-free cloth to prevent water spots from appearing on them. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I bought mushrooms to make a dish, and they didnt last very long in the refrigerator. How do I keep them fresher for longer? „ Anne from California Dear Anne: Take these steps: Do not wash mushrooms before storing because they will become slimy if you put them in the refrigerator. Instead, simply wipe mushrooms with dry paper towels and put them into a paper bag, which will let them breathe. Rinse with water and pat dry just before you use them. „ HeloiseBride is drowning in the details of planning her beach weddingDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 13, 2018 NATIONAL NEWS MISSOULA, Mont. „ Montanas Clark Fork River near Missoula began to recede Saturday after cresting at its highest level in a century, but the ”oodwaters are expected to surge again next week with no end in sight for the hundreds of homes threatened. The river crested Friday night at 13.82 feet, its highest level since 1908, after knocking trailer homes off their foundations and sweeping trees and other dangerous debris downstream. Cooler weather is re-freezing the mountain snowpack, which has slowed the snowmelt rushing into the river and will allow the water level to drop slightly over the next few days, National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Leach said. But the river will remain in major ”ood stage until temperatures warm up again and push the river back up starting Tuesday to possibly another record level by next Saturday, he said. Moderate to major ”ooding is expected to continue for weeks, which may create a problem of complacency among the residents of the hundreds of homes that are threatened, Leach said. This is kind of becoming the normal right now, where were really settled into the ”ood,Ž he said. Dont get complacent, the river is still dangerous and its still ”ooding.Ž Authorities have ordered the evacuation of about 65 homes, though many have refused to leave, and more than 800 others are under an evacuation warning. One injury has been reported so far, that of a man rescued from a transient camp surrounded by water who was treated at a hospital for possible hypothermia. Much of the western half of Montana saw record or nearrecord snowfall this winter that is now rapidly melting. Flood warnings have been issued for the Sun River near Simms in central Montana, along with Tenmile Creek outside Helena and parts of Jefferson and Broadwater counties. More than 100 homes remained threatened near Lincoln due to ”ooding along the Blackfoot River. The cold weather that will re-freeze the mountain snowpack above Missoula is also expected to bring a late-season snowstorm to Yellowstone National Park and northern Wyoming. Between 1 and 4 inches could fall overnight on Old Faithful, with up to 7 inches of snow forecast in some of the highest elevations.Montana river recedes, but floodwaters are likely to resurgeASSOCIATED PRESS KURT WILSON /THE MISSOULIAN VIA APFloodwater from the Clark Fork River ows over the road and through a fence line, Thursday, at the Kelly Island Fishing Access o Mullan Road west of Missoula. The Clark Fork River was measured at 12.8 feet Thursday. OLYMPIA, Wash. „ Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee proclaimed a state of emergency Saturday for counties in the eastern part of the state that are experiencing severe ”ooding. Flooding is impacting communities in Ferry, Okanogan and Pend Oreille counties and could get worse next week. The proclamation covers these three plus the 17 other Eastern Washington counties facing an increased threat of ”ooding over the next seven days. Flooding caused by recent rains and snow melt has fouled water and sewage treatment facilities, threatened state highways and local roads, and caused some people to leave their homes,Ž Inslee said. Continued higher temperatures are predicted to increase snow melt and cause additional ”ooding as rivers and streams continue to rise to record or near record levels.Ž State agencies and local jurisdictions are coordinating resources to address the impacts caused by the ”ooding, and the governors proclamation directs state agencies to implement appropriate response activities The State Emergency Operations Center at the Washington Military Departments Camp Murray was activated Saturday to monitor local efforts and coordinate resources to help local of“cials respond. The proclamation allows the governor to activate resources of the Washington National Guard, if necessary. The National Weather Service predicts major ”ooding of the Okanogan River near Tonasket to continue through the next week, the Spokesman-Review reported The Okanogan River, which runs through Tonasket, reached a level of 19 feet early Friday morning, which is above the 15-foot ”ood stage. Okanogan county announced Friday afternoon that it had opened its Emergency Operations Center to coordinate communication about region ”oods. The city of Omak has a levy thats handling water ”ow, but is experiencing backup in storm drains. Some residents and businesses in Omak are experiencing basement ”ooding, according to an Omak Police Department release. Of“cials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Okanogan County Emergency Management are continuing to monitor river levels. Omak City Administrator Todd McDaniel said the city brought in additional pumps to handle water ”ow and is on 24/7 watch. We believe the levy is going to hold. We are concerned about (water) seepage coming in, but I think well be “ne,Ž he said. The Pend Oreille River is forecast to reach a ”ow of more than 118,000 cubic feet per second by next Thursday, which hasnt occurred since 2011. The Kettle River reached a crest of 22 feet Friday and is expected to remain above record levels for the next week, according to the National Weather Service. Though not yet above the ”ood stage, the stretch of the Spokane River in Spokane reached a near-”ood stage Friday, though meteorologists predict it will likely crest there and go back down next week.Flooding in Washington reaches emergency levelsASSOCIATED PRESS CROSSROAD, LEATHER, THIRD SEAT, DUAL AIR2017 DODGE JOURNEY V-6 POWER 5.3L V8, CREW CAB LT MODEL, LEATHER, ONE OWNER2010 CHEVROLET SILVERADO $18,987 ONE OWNER, SHORT BED, LOADED UP, LOW MILES2013 FORD F-150 $15,987 2LT PACKAGE, ONE OWNER, HARD TO FIND V62015 CHEVROLET IMPALA 24,300 MILES 4 DOOR CREW CAB, SV MODEL, POWERFUL, V6 ENGINE2011 NISSAN FRONTIER $15,987 TOURING MODEL, LEATHER, STOW N GO, ONE OWNER2016 CHRYSLER TN & CTRY 15,800 MILES QUAD CAB, 5.7L HEMI POWER, 20Ž WHEELS, NEW2016 RAM 1500 4X4 TOP OF ITS CLASS, ONE OWNER, 19,000 MILES, NICE2016 KIA SPORTAGE $16,987 SE MODEL, 36,000 MILES, SUNROOF, WARRANTY, NICE2014 TOYOTA CAMRY NAVIGATION 19,200 MILES, Z71 PACKAGE, ONE OWNER, SHARP2016 CHEVROLET COLORADO 4X4 ONE OWNER, 23,000 MILES, AUTOMATIC, WARRANTY2015 KIA SOUL $13,987 HARD TO FIND, ONE OWNER, AUTOMATIC, XL MODEL2010 FORD RANGER 40,400 MILES All Vehicle Prices Clearly Marked...

Sunday, May 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C5 www.highlandsnewssun.comWASHINGTON „ The key long-term U.S. mortgage rate held steady this week, providing a lure for potential homebuyers as the spring buying season goes forward. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, “xedrate mortgages was 4.55 percent, unchanged from last week. The benchmark rate rose steadily for most of April, reaching its highest level in more than four years. By contrast, the rate averaged 4.05 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, “xed-rate loans declined slightly to 4.01 percent from 4.03 percent last week. Despite higher borrowing costs and home prices, demand for home purchases has grown in the spring buying season as the economic outlook has continued to improve and bolstered consumer con“dence. Homes sold at a solid annual pace of 5.6 million in March, the National Association of Realtors reported last week, even though the number of houses for sale has plunged. As a result, average home prices are rising at more than twice the pace of wages. The tight job market, solid economic growth and restrained in”ation have kept mortgage rates steady, Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater suggested. As we head into late spring, the demand for (mortgage) credit remains rock solid, which should set us up for another robust summer home-sales season,Ž he said. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The fees on 30-year and 15-year “xedrate mortgages were unchanged from last week at 0.5 point and 0.4 point, respectively. The average rate for “ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages rose to 3.77 percent from 3.69 percent last week. The fee remained at 0.3 percent.US key mortgage rate steady at 4.55 percentTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this February le photo, sold signs are displayed in front of a new development in Woodcli Lake, N.J. The key long-term U.S. mortgage rate held steady this week, providing a lure for potential homebuyers as the spring buying season goes forward. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday, May 10, the average rate on 30-year, xed-rate mortgages was 4.55 percent, unchanged from last week. The benchmark rate rose steadily for most of April, reaching its highest level in more than four years. By contrast, the rate averaged 4.05 percent a year ago.Have mortgage loan officers become more trustworthy?Q: Did the new regulations issued in the wake of the “nancial crisis make mortgage loan of“cers more trustworthy? A: One regulation, issued by the Federal Reserve as part of Truth in Lending, has had that affect. This regulation made it illegal for a mortgage lender to compensate a loan of“cer (LO) for overcharging a customer. Such overcharges were called overages.Ž An overage is a price above the price posted by the lender to its LOs. If a lender posts a price of 4 percent and 1 point, and the LO prices the loan at 4 percent plus 2 points, the additional point would be the overage. Under the Feds rule, LOs no longer have an incentive to charge overages, and most lenders prohibit the practice altogether. There is one segment of the market, however, where overages remain pervasive as Ill discuss below. We have not always had overages. In the 1920s, before there were secondary markets, consumers who wanted mortgages visited the of“ces of commercial banks, savings banks or savings and loan associations and dealt with salaried employees who had no discretion or incentive to adjust prices. Overages arose following the development of secondary mortgage markets after World War II. Secondary markets made it possible to go into the loan origination business without becoming a regulated “nancial institution. Once you had one or more reliable buyers, all you needed was a little capital and a line of credit. These “rms are mortgage companies,Ž or (as they much prefer) mortgage banks.Ž They are temporary lenders, as distinguished from portfolio lenders, who hold the loans they originate in their portfolios. Mortgage banking developed its own operating methods and a culture to match that were very different from those of portfolio lenders. Mortgage banks invested very little in physical facilities designed to attract walk-in traf“c during business hours. Instead, they retained loan of“cers (LOs) to actively pursue clients, as opposed to sitting behind a desk waiting for clients to appear. To develop purchase loan business, LOs courted real estate sales agents, making themselves available to take a loan application „ which might be on the hood of an automobile on a Sunday morning. To develop re“nance business, LOs might camp out in the of“ce of a public agency that maintains records of deeds and liens, developing lists of borrowers who might pro“t from a re“nance. Because LOs did most of their work out of the of“ce subject to little supervision, they were compensated largely or entirely on a commission basis. While they were legally employees of the mortgage bank, LOs operated largely as if they were independent contractors. And the more loans they brought in, the more independent they were. Overages were part of the package. Most LOs wanted to be free to charge what the traf“c would bear, and pro“t from it. The lender who wouldnt tolerate overages would lose LOs, and the most successful LOs would be the “rst to leave. The LO-based mortgage origination system made the depository of“ce obsolete as a source of mortgage loans. Depository institutions that wanted to be major players in the home loan market had to hire their own LOs „ or acquire an entire mortgage banking “rm as an af“liate. The af“liate approach was the more popular because it avoided clash between very different cultures. I recall my shock when I joined the board of a large savings and loan association in the 1980s and found that the CEO was the third most highly compensated employee of the association. The two who earned more were LOs, who had not yet been moved into a separate af“liate. The practice of charging overages when possible made the home loan market similar to a Middle Eastern carpet market, with one difference. The typical carpet shopper knows that bazaar prices are subject to bargaining, but many if not most mortgage shoppers did not. The result was that naive and innocent borrowers paid more than those who were better informed. Over the years, I must have written 10 or more articles on one or another aspect of avoiding overages. The general attitude of most mortgage lenders was that overages were a necessary evil that they would like to eliminate if they could do it without losing their best loan producers. The possibility that the incidence of overages might be systematically associated with one or another popul ation group was an ever-present danger. In at least one case that I know about, a large lender was “ned heavily by its regulator because overages were more pervasive among its black borrowers than among its white borrowers. The Federal Reserve rule that barred LOs from being compensated for overages gave lenders the power to eliminate them without losing their LOs. For some reason, however, the rule did not apply to the reverse mortgage market. Overages in the reverse mortgage market Because of the complexity of HECM reverse mortgages and the advanced age of borrowers, the public policy case for eliminating overages is even stronger than it is for standard mortgages. Yet this has not happened. The result is wide variability in the amounts a senior can draw on a reverse mortgage, depending on which loan provider the senior contacts. There is only one place a senior can go to compare the amounts offered by competing lenders, and that is my website.

Whether its picking the wrong location or buying more house than you can afford, the mistakes are often universal, says Ilyce Glink, author of 100 Questions Every First-Time Home Buyer Should Ask.Ž When youre in your 20s, your life isnt the same as when youre retired, and yet youre both going to make timing mistakes,Ž Glink says. You may make location mistakes. You may not think about what you need for every stage of your life, so you buy the wrong size home or make a bad money decision.Ž Even so, certain age groups are more susceptible to particular missteps than others. Here are common mistakes homeowners make at each age, and a few ways to avoid them. 20s: Getting the wrong type of mortgage People in their 20s are just starting their careers and usually have less money saved than older homebuyers. For these folks, paying less for a mortgage is not just a priority but a necessity. This can be a bad thing if buyers get into an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) thinking they will earn more money down the road, says Michael Corbett, host of Extras Mansions and MillionairesŽ and author of Find It, Fix It, Flip It.Ž Younger buyers might get an adjustable-rate mortgage because the rate is really low; its like a teaser rate,Ž Corbett says. And they think, Im going to get it because Im improving in my job situation or Ill pay off my student loan. But if that doesnt happen then, when interest rates go up in “ve to seven years, theyre going to see their mortgage rates double or even triple.Ž If the rates on ARMs increase dramatically, theres a chance the borrower will no longer be able to afford their mortgage payment, which could put the house in jeopardy. Before leaping into an ARM with just a dream of a house and a hope for a bigger paycheck, consider other cost-saving alternatives. Along with popular programs, like FHA loans and VA loans, there are other lesser-known initiatives geared to homebuyers on a “xed income. The HUD-sponsored Good Neighbor Next Door program, for example, offers homebuying assistance for law enforcement of“cers, “re“ghters, emergency medical technicians and pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers. Along with federal money, there are also state-sponsored grants for “rst-time homebuyers, which you can typically “nd on your states website. 30s: Not thinking about the future Homebuyers in their 30s blunder by not considering a future family when theyre standing in the middle of downtown condo with gorgeous views and access to a rooftop pool. While snagging the ultimate bachelor or bachelorette pad might seem alluring, it can also cost you money down the road, Corbett says. What happens is they end up having to sell „ maybe not at an appropriate time „ the bachelor pad and get into another house,Ž Corbett says. Now theyre doing it under duress instead of planning ahead the “rst time, so theres a lot of money lost there.Ž If you plan on having a family, its important to consider that when youre home shopping, even if youre currently single. Glink says to ask yourself these questions before buying a home: „Who do I imagine living with in the future? „Where do I imagine living? „How do I imagine living? Those answers should be an integral part of what you look for in a home. For example, if you think you might want kids or even a dog, youll probably want to choose a home with a backyard versus one near a great nightlife. 40s-50s: Overestimating your budget In your 40s and 50s, you tend to have more money, which can lead to overestimating your budget and buying a house you cant afford. One way to avoid this is to “gure out your lifestyle comfort level, Glink says. Just because you can afford a $500,000 home doesnt mean you should buy one. If youre married and both you and your spouse are working, “gure out whether or not you can afford the mortgage payment if one of you gets laid off,Ž Glink says. Figuring out your budget is a critical step for buyers of all ages. Even experienced homebuyers can make the mistake of spending at their limit, which can mean making sacri“ces that they werent prepared to make. Use Bankrates home affordability calculator to determine how much you should spend. The takeaway for buyers in their 40s and 50s is to leave room in the budget for things they arent willing to give up „ for example, private school for the kids. 60s and up: Falling in love with that vacation home Many homeowners in their 60s are retired or getting ready to retire. Among the many decisions retirees make is where to live. While some choose to stay where they are, many plan on moving to warmer climates or even another country. A costly mistake retirees make, Glink says, is going on vacation, falling in love with the place and moving immediately. Relocating and buying a home is an expensive process, so retirees should be sure they familiarize themselves with a new place before buying. Too many retirees make the mistake of going on vacation ƒ and they think, Oh my god, this is great, and they go home immediately and they sell their house,Ž Glink says. They get there and they hate it. They didnt spend enough time there.Ž Before buying a new house in your vacation paradise, be sure to visit the area in every climate. For example, Florida is great in the winter, but many people might not be comfortable in the humid summer months. The same goes for northern areas „ whats blissful in one season can be awful in another.

Sunday, May 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C7 www.highlandsnewssun.com Dorothy Draper and her mark on American interiorsIn her preface to Dorothy Drapers groundbreaking 1939 book on interior design, Decorating is Fun!,Ž Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt Jr. wrote, Decorating in not apart from life but part of living itself.Ž Who is Dorothy Draper you ask? Draper became the “rst professional interior designer in America when she opened Architectural Clearing House in 1925 at the behest of close friends like the Roosevelts. Draper grew up in a comfort and manner many of us will never be privy too within the exclusive Tuxedo Park community of New York. She enjoyed yearly trips to Europe with her family and because of her position in life found clients and inspiration plentiful. Prior to her venture into design, interiors were a side note in the story of a building. Usually it was something pulled together by the project architect or the muse of a project benefactors fashionable wife. Draper changed that when she was commissioned to design the Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue, then the Drake Hotel, in Chicago, and complete a $10 million design for the Palcio Quitandinha in Petrpolis, Rio de Janeiro during the height of the Great Depression. While she basked spaces in Baroque opulence and sunlight cabbage roses without shame, she stood by “ve simple guidelines: courage, color, balance, accessories and comfort. Many of the most common interior choices we struggle with today are owed to her vision. When Draper approached her 1937 renovation of the exclusive Hampshire House apartment hotel, she was innovative and used sliding glass doors instead of a curtain on tubs. In 1946, she included wall-to-wall carpeting in the hallways and guest rooms of the Greenbriar Resort & Spa in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, covering the cold wood plank ”oors of her predecessors period inspired look, adding comfort and warmth to a previously simple English styleŽ interior. And as she is famously quoted in her Ask DorothyŽ column that ran in nearly 70 newspapers during the depression, take that red and paint your front door with it!Ž Her style and mark on American interiors is still livingŽ today throughout the rooms of the Greenbriar Resort & Spa from the resorts oversized banana leaf wallpapered walls, black and white harlequin ”oors and Hollywood sourced cut glass chandeliers.

C8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com How should I baby-proof or child-proof my home?If you have a little one on the way, one of the most important steps to take is baby-proo“ng and child-proo“ng your home. You can hire a professional childproo“ng company to examine your home and provide a full list of recommendations. Most of the time, they can install the products at the same time. But you can also take steps on your own to make your home safe for the little ones. WHAT SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR WHEN CHILD-PROOFING? Youve probably already thought about some of the basics: baby gates on stairs, childproof locks on doors and cabinets, bumpers on table corners and other potentially dangerous furniture. In addition to that, go through your house and look for potential danger zones. Kitchens and bathrooms hold particularly high danger levels. Take special care to make sure knives and cleaning chemicals are well out of reach and secured behind child-locked doors and drawers. Knob covers on stoves prevent your child from accidentally starting up a heat source. Keep an eye out for choking hazards. Cords from blinds can easily entangle a child. Replace your blinds with cordless blinds if possible, or use a cord safety device. In addition to baby gates on stairs, consider other areas of your home that would bene“t from a safety barrier, such as “replaces. This is good advice in any situation, but always worth remembering for your familys safety: Install smoke detectors and regularly check them. WHATS THE BEST WAY TO BABY-PROOF FURNITURE? Babies and small children can get into places and climb things youd never expect. First off, install straps and anchors to large and unwieldy furniture, such as dressers and bookcases, to prevent them from falling over. Cabinet latches and locks are a must as well. Carefully read the instructions on any safety equipment you install yourself. A poorly installed safety feature can be worse than none at all. HOW SHOULD I BABY-PROOF THE ELECTRICAL OUTLETS IN MY HOME? If your home was built after 2008, your outlets are already baby-proofed to a certain degree. Thats when the National Electrical Code started calling for tamper-resistant receptacles, which block off access unless both slots are pushed in simultaneously. If you have older outlets, an electrician can easily replace them. (The cost will depend on the number of outlets.) Of course, its always a good idea to add another layer of protection. Outlet caps remain a longtime standard, but theyre also a choking hazard. Instead, place sliding outlet covers on the plates. You can buy these for a few dollars per cover and install them yourself. HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SMALL CHILD AGAINST POISONING? The most important step in poison prevention is keeping dangerous materials away from kids. Medication and household cleaning chemicals should be locked in cabinets, high up and out of reach. Keep your state or local poison control centers phone number close at hand, so you can “nd it easily in the event of an emergency. And when you have household cleaners or medications out for use, keep a sharp eye on them „ it only takes a second for a child to get into them. Paul F. P.

Sunday, May 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C9 www.highlandsnewssun.com Question: Dear Ed: I read your past article about kitchen sink soap dispensers. You educated me on new countertop touchless dispensers that are now available. Well, at the time we were installing granite counters with an under-mount sink, and you saved us from drilling a second hole in the counter. Also, it works out so well in the kitchen, I was wondering if I should invest in two more for my bathrooms. Does that sound practical? „ Dolly, Texas Answer: If something makes your life a little easier and its within budget, I say its practical. Many homeowners are discovering stylish battery-operated handsfree soap dispensers are great for kitchens and bathrooms. First, touchless dispensers promote better hygiene and are so much fun to use, especially for the kids. Also, a lighted timer takes the guesswork out of proper hand-washing lather time. Finally, my favorite feature is no plumbing labor is necessary, just place it on the countertop and wash away any installation headaches. Master Contractor/ Plumber Ed Del Grande is known internationally as the author of the book Ed Del Grandes House Call,Ž the host of TV and Internet shows, and a LEED green associate.

You didnt think the Washington Capitals were just going to show up and play patsy as the Lightning steamrolled its way to the Stanley Cup final, right? Well, if thats what you thought then you and the Lightning were all in for rude awakenings Friday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final. Turns out, this Caps team is pretty good. And, oh, you can forget all that baloney about Washington just being happy to be here. Looks as if they have some plans of their own, Stanley Cup plans that include busting through Tampa Bay to get there. The Lightning came out flat and then got really flattened. The final score was 4-2. Dont be fooled. It wasnt that close. It was brutal loss, the kind that shakes confidences and plants doubts. Now the good news is the Lightning has been in this spot before. Just last round, it got blown out by the Bruins in Game 1 and rallied to win the next four games. Time and time again the past few years, this group has suffered what appeared to be shattering losses only to put the pieces back together again and claw back to life. The bad news? The adno=50534782NHL: CommentaryBy RICK STROUDTampa Bay TimesTAMPA „ Ronald Jones took the handoff and ran to his left, stuck his right foot in the ground and darted through a collapsing hole between the guard and tackle before disappearing like a jet on the horizon. It was his first carry during his first rookie minicamp practice in a Buccaneers uniform. But it wasnt hard to imagine Jones carrying the football to the end zone, carrying the offense on his shoulders and carrying the Bucs back to the postseason this fall. Well, Ronald is what we thought,Ž coach Dirk Koetter said Friday. You can see the guy has got juice. I mean Im sure everybody out here saw it. When he touches the ball, hes got a gear that we dont have on our team right now. That doesnt mean he doesnt have a lot to learn. But you can see from his USC tape, but its great to see him out here and see him in our colors.Ž Jones, a second-round pick from Southern Cal, should have the biggest impact of any Bucs player from this years draft class. Thats not a slight on Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea, the 12th overall pick. But Tampa Bay averaged only 3.7 yards per carry last season, which ranked 27th in the NFL. Their eight rushing TDs tied for 25th. The way you improve that is with a running back who can make explosive plays. Jones is that, having had 12 games in which he had a least one run of 40 yards or more. Jones, who wont turn 21 until August, isnt shrinking from expectations. He expects to hit it big and hit it fast. Definitely coming in and hitting it right off the bat,Ž Jones said. Yeah, Rookie of the Year, things like that.

Still, for all his success in leading the Wests top team this season, DAntoni might need a championship to validate his style. Standing in the way are the defending champion Warriors, who open the best-of-seven Western Conference finals at Houston on Monday night. He empowers everyone to shoot the basketball, and thats dangerous,Ž said Green, Golden States bruising forward. Thats why NBA: RocketsRockets Mike DAntoni, king of the 3, draws singular praiseAP PHOTOFILE In this Feb. 7, 2008, file photo, Phoenix Suns Shaquille ONeal, center, holds up his new basketball jersey as he is flanked by Suns general manager Steve Kerr, left, and coach Mike DAntoni at a news conference in Phoenix.

Page 2 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, May 13, 2018 / The Sun Lightning isnt playing the Bruins anymore. Washington is bigger than Boston. Tougher. Scarier. Stingier on defense. Steadier in goal. More dangerous on offense. In a word: better. You can say its only one game. Thats true. But if felt like more than one game. It felt like a statement. It looked like a clinic. The Caps so badly dominated the Lightning that two quick questions come to mind. One: Is the Li g htnin g in serious trouble after only one game? And, two: How in the world does this happen? How can a team that has looked so good in the past couple of weeks look so discombobulated, so outclassed? First off, no, the Lightning is not in serious trouble just yet. Its a bestof-seven series. Lets see where things stand after what has now become an almost must-win Game 2 before we start planning eulogies. Things always seem like the end of the world when you lose a playoff game, especially Game 1. But lets be clear about this. There was never in a point in the Boston series, not even during the Game 1 loss, when things looked his dire. Thats how much of a smack-down Friday night was. Thats how good Washington was. Thats how bad Tampa Bay was. Its disappointing and frustrating when you dont come out the way you want to play,Ž Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. Its one thing if you play well and you dont get the win. But I dont think we deserved to be that game.Ž So that brin g s to how. How did this happen? Maybe it was just one of those nights. Youre bound of have a clunker every now and then, even if youre a team that had won eight of 10 games this postseason coming into Friday night. The breaks dont even out. The bounces dont go your way. Luck takes a few shifts for the other guy. And there was some of that as the Caps scored a couple of goals that were a direct result of fluky bounces after fanning on shots. Then again, those goals count, too. And that doesnt mean to suggest that the Ca p s were sim p l y luckier than Tampa Bay. They were flat-out better, which is another explanation for what happened Friday. The Caps are a really good team with really good players and they proved that Friday night. They were just a better team (Friday),Ž Lightning defenseman Dan Girardi said. They were on top of us. They didnt give us any space. ƒ They were just a better team. By far.Ž The part of the equation for what happened thats the most concerning is what role did the Li g htnin g p la y in it? Sure, Washington was good, but Tampa Bay, even with a late push that produced two third-period goals, was simply not good enough. Not by a mile. Our game wasnt good enough for where it needs to be this time of year,Ž Lightning forward Ryan Callahan said. Theres no reason to think the Lightning cant get back to where it needs to be to compete in this series. Its certainly not the end of the world. But you can see the end of the season from here if the Lightning cant figure things out. It has less than 48 hours to do so.

Experience tells the coach and his players they shouldnt be overly concerned about losing the opening game of the Eastern Conference finals at home. The way the Washington Capitals are playing, though, it could be more difficult to rebound from a shabby performance this time. Game 2 is Sunday night, and Cooper expects the Atlantic Division winners to be at their best. Its unfortunate how we played a couple of these Game 1s in the last couple of rounds, (and) dug ourselves a small hole this series,Ž the coach said after a workout Saturday at the teams suburban practice facility. I guess the positive side is weve been here before, so weve seen this. But we cant keep playing with fire and dropping these Game 1s, which weve done. All of a sudden youve thrown home ice advantage back at them. Now youve put pressure on yourself. You got to go win games on the road, which you have to do anyway in the playoffs, but your margin for error gets smaller and smaller. Were really going to need a good effort (Sunday).Ž The Capitals won the opener 4-2, ending an eight-game playoff losin g skid to Tampa Bay dating to the 2003 postseason. Alex Ovechkin, T.J. Oshie, Jay Beagle and Lars Eller scored for Washington, while rejuvenated goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 19 shots to help the Caps improve to 6-1 on the road this postseason.NHL: Eastern Conference “ nalsLightning eye bounce-back performance against CapitalsMILB: HAMMERHEADS 4, STONE CRABS 3Charlotte drops road “ naleStaff ReportsLate runs continue to plague the Charlotte Stone Crabs, as they lost 4-3 Saturday against the Jupiter Hammerheads. The Stone Crabs were leading 3-1 entering the eighth inning, but one run allowed by Mikey York in the eighth brought the game within one run with Deivy Mendez entering the game for a save in the ninth. Without recording an out, Mendez allowed two walks to begin the inning, follow by an RBI double to Justin Twine and then a walkoff wild pitch to end the game. Robbie Tenerowicz and Jesus Sanchez each had two hits in the loss. Sanchez also had two RBI. Charlotte's only extra-base hit was David Olmedo-Barrera's double. Starter Sam McWilliams allowed just one unearned run on four hits and a walk in six innings pitched, but earned a no decision.Called upThe bigger news of the day was the call up of two-way prospect Brendan Mckay. The Tampa Bay Rays announced Saturday afternoon left-handed pitcher and first baseman Brendan McKay would be called up from Low-A Bowling Green to the Stone Crabs. McKay, the Rays No. 3 prospect, is scheduled to join Charlotte when they begin their homestand on Monday. In 91 plate appearances this season with the Hot Rods, McKay is batting .254 with 1 home run, two doubles, 16 RBI, 28 walks and 13 strikeouts. On the mound, he's 2-0 in six starts with a 1.09 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 24 ‡ innings pitched. By LARRY LAGEAssociated PressWINNIPEG, Manitoba „ Dustin Byfuglien scored about a minute after the puck dropped and the Winnipeg Jets built a three-goal lead early in the first period and went on to beat the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2 on Saturday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Patrik Laine and Joel Armia had goals 46 seconds apart to put the Jets up 3-0. Mark Scheifele gave Winnipeg a 4-1 lead midway through the second period with his 12th goal this postseason. Brayden McNabb scored midway through the first and William Karlsson late in the second period to pull Vegas within two, but the expansion team couldnt get closer. Winnipegs Connor Hellebuyck made 18 saves. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 shots for the Golden Knights. The Jets will host Game 2 on Monday night before the series shifts to Las Vegas. Winnipeg, which is making its deepest playoff run in franchise history, appeared to be in rhythm less than 48 hours after advancing past top-seeded Nashville. Vegas, meanwhile, seemed rusty after resting for nearly a week after eliminating San Jose in the second round. Or, maybe the Jets are just that good. Winnipegs fast, deep and talented team had 114 points this season, trailing only the Predators league-high total by three points. The hard-charging, smooth-passing Jets put the Pacific Division champions on their heels right from the start and didnt relent. White-clad, toweltwirling raucous fans in the arena „ and packed on surrounding streets „ were fired up before the game started. And, they were given plenty of opportunities to celebrate in the opening minutes.NHL: Western Conference “ nalsJets jump on Golden Knights early, open series with 4-2 winBy DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressBALTIMORE „ Brad Miller and C.J. Cron homered off former teammate Alex Cobb, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-3 on Saturday night to earn a doubleheader split and snap a five-game losing streak. In the opener, Orioles right-hander David Hess pitched six effective innings in his major league debut and Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs in a 6-3 victory. Recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to serve as the 26th man in the singleadmission doubleheader, Hess (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits, walking none and striking out three. In the nightcap, the Rays scored a run in each of the first four innings against Cobb (0-5) and led 4-1 in the sixth when a thunderstorm stopped play for 1 hour, 19 minutes. Baltimore ultimately cut the gap on an RBI single by Trey Mancini, who also homered in the first inning. But Tampa Bay pulled away, ending the Orioles season-high winning streak at four games. Mallex Smith had three hits and three RBIs for the Rays, and Wilson Ramos extended his hitting streak to 18 games with a ninth-inning single. Manager Kevin Cash went deep into his pitching staff, beginning with starter Matt Andriese, who usually works out of the bullpen. Sergio Romo (1-0), the second of seven Tampa Bay pitchers, got the win. Cobb spent six years with the Rays before signing with Baltimore this past offseason as a free agent. Two of his five defeats have come against Tampa Bay. In the opener, pitching on just three days rest, Hess found himself in a three-run hole after facing four batters in the top of the first inning. The 24-year-old ended his outing with five innings of two-hit ball. I cant really even put it into words. Its an experience you literally dream about since you were a kid,Ž gushed Hess, a 2014 fifth-round pick. It definitely has been everything and more than I hoped it would be.Ž Its quite possible Hess earned himself an extended stay with the big league club. David presented himself well,Ž manager Buck Showalter said. Well see what best serves us.Ž Mychal Givens worked 1 ‡ innings for his first career save. Chris Archer (2-3) went seven innings, allowing six runs and seven hits „ including a season-high three homers.BASEBALL: RAYSRays rebound to beat Orioles 10-3 for doubleheader splitFlorida Lottery www.flalottery.comPICK 2May 12N ........................... 3-6 May 12D ........................... 7-5 May 11N ........................... 7-6 May 11D ........................... 9-7 May 10N ........................... 5-4 May 10D ........................... 9-5 D-Day, N-NightPICK 3May 12N ....................... 0-2-8 May 12D ....................... 7-6-6 May 11N ....................... 2-4-5 May 11D ....................... 7-3-1 May 10N ....................... 6-9-6 May 10D ....................... 1-0-1 D-Day, N-NightPICK 4May 12N .................... 5-2-9-0 May 12D .................... 0-7-9-5 May 11N .................... 6-4-9-6 May 11D .................... 9-6-3-5 May 10N .................... 4-5-4-8 May 10D .................... 3-6-0-2 D-Day, N-NightPICK 5May 12N ................. 3-7-3-7-3 May 12D ................. 2-6-1-3-0 May 11N ................. 9-7-9-2-4 May 11D ................. 6-2-8-4-6 May 10N ................. 8-5-1-5-3 May 10D ................. 4-9-6-6-2 D-Day, N-NightFANTASY 5May 12 ......... 12-13-23-27-31 May 11 ............. 1-2-14-30-32 May 10 ........... 9-16-29-32-33 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 11 2 5-digit winners $106,64272 243 4-digit winners $14150 7,648 3-digit winners $1250CASH FOR LIFEMay 10 ......... 11-36-41-43-48 Cash Ball ............................ 4 May 7 ............. 4-15-19-22-51 Cash Ball ............................ 2 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 10 0 ......... 5-of-5 CB $1,000/Day 0 ............ 5-of-5 $1,000/Week 1 ................ 4-of-5 CB $2,500 10 ........................ 4-of-5 $500LUCKY MONEYMay 11 ................ 7-12-16-41 Lucky Ball ......................... 10 May 8 .................. 1-14-17-35 Lucky Ball ......................... 14 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 11 0 .......... 4-of-4 LB $17 million 1 ................... 4-of-4 $6,18600 38 .............. 3-of-4 LB $35650 704 ................... 3-of-4 $5650LOTTOMay 12 .... 10-16-20-28-40-42 May 9 ........ 6-19-22-23-25-28 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 9 0 6-digit winners $85 million 16 .. 5-digit winners $387700 1,150 4-digit winners $5650POWERBALLMay 12 ......... 22-42-45-55-56 Powerball ......................... 14 May 9 ........... 11-16-38-50-69 Powerball ......................... 19 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 9 0 ..... 5 of 5 + PB $233 Million 0 .................. 5 of 5 $1 Million 2 ............ 4 of 5 + PB $50,000 42 ........................ 4 of 5 $100 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $257 millionMEGA MILLIONSMay 11 ......... 14-38-40-53-70 Mega Ball ......................... 22 May 8 ............. 8-15-39-64-67 Mega Ball ......................... 13 € € € PAYOFF FOR May 1 0 ...... 5 of 5 + MB $40 Million 0 .................. 5 of 5 $1 Million 0 ........... 4 of 5 + MB $10,000 12 ........................ 4 of 5 $500 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $50 million 2 0 1 8 0 5 1 3 s p r t 0 2 0 0 1 p d f 1 1 3 M a y 1 8 0 3 : 5 4 : 0 4

The Sun / Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3Taking the team to the next level. Winning the division. Possibly going deep in th e playoffs. Just making that spark.Ž Its happened here before, you know. In 2005, the Bucs drafted Cadillac Williams out of Auburn with the fifth overall pick. Williams rushed for 434 yards in his first three games, setting records as the first rookie running back to ever have three consecutive, 100 yard games to start his career while rushing for the most yards. They sent his shoes to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Bucs started 4-0 and 5-1. Williams won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year after rushing for 1,178 yards and six touchdowns. The team won the NFC South with an 11-5 mark before losing in the wildcard to Washington. The Bucs were coming off a 6-10 season, their first under Tony Dungy, when they drafted Warrick Dunn with 12th overall in 97. He was the perfect complement to fullback Mike Alstott. Dunn p roduced 1,440 yards rushing (978 yards, four TDs) and receiving (462 yards, three TDs), was the NFLs Offensive Rookie of the Year. The Bucs went 10-6 to finish second in the NFC Central, beat Detroit in the wildcard and lost to the Packers in the divisional playoffs. Could Jones be one of those transformative running backs? Doug Martin rushed for more than 1,454 yards and 11 TDs as a rookie, but it wasnt enough to help the 2012 Bucs avoid a losing season under Greg Schiano. Alvin Kamara was a third-round choice of the Saints and was the difference last season in them getting to the NFC title game. If youre an explosive player, yeah, youre going to help the team,Ž Koetter said. Every team is looking to increase their explosives. It was a good group of running backs in the draft and thought Ronald was an explosive guy who would be a nice complement to Peyton, a complement to the guys we got. Again, its one day. Lets let it play out here.Ž Koetter is right. Jones has a long way to go. Right now, hes a two-down back. He wasnt used much as a receiver at USC. Jones caught the football well Friday, but rookies always have a long way to go in learning pass protection. Well, he caught the ball well today,Ž Koetter said. Well have to see how it goes overall. He did a good job the way they asked him to. They threw him screens and check downs, so well just have to see. Again, its the first practice.Ž For Jones, there will be other adjustments. Friday was another big step in a long process. He got to meet the other players in his rookie class. He tried to navigate his way around One Buc Place. He pulled on a practice jersey with the NFL shield and a helmet with the Bucs logo. It felt great,Ž Jones said. You know they got the label on it and theyve got to the logo. You know, at SC we didnt get the logo going in. So its good to have that stripe on me. As soon as I walked up, the sun and the humidity hit me just like everyone said it would. But its everything that Ive asked for. Im extremely blessed to be here and Im just ready to make the most of it.ŽAssociated PressHOUSTON „ Justin Reid used to frequent his older brothers house to watch NFL game film and study game preparations. The Texans rookie safety was at Stanford then, and the visits gave him a behind-the-scenes look at the NFL life of his older brother, Eric Reid, who was thriving with the San Francisco 49ers. On Friday afternoon, Justin Reid was looking forward to calling his brother back in the Bay Area to talk about Day 1 of his own NFL journey with Houston. Earlier this week, the NFL players union filed a non-injury grievance on behalf of Eric Reid, now a free agent after five seasons in San Francisco, including a Pro Bowl rookie season in 2013. Eric Reid has been a strong supporter of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. Last week, Eric Reid filed a collusion claim similar to one filed by Kaepernick in 2017 where several league owners and executives were deposed, including Texans owner Bob McNair. Justin Reid said he he hasnt had a lot of time to digest his feelings on his brothers decisions „ but he supports all of them. Im proud of my brother and supportive of everything he does, the same way I support all of my family members,Ž Justin Reid said. If they believe what theyre doing is right, then they should do it.Ž Asked to describe for NFL owners what kind of person his older brother is, Justin Reid vouched for him, emphatically. You should just hold a conversation with him,Ž Justin Reid said. I wont speak for Eric, Ill let him deliver his own message. But if you held a conversation with him, then youd really understand what hes standing for.Ž The Texans used their first draft pick on Justin Reid, selecting him 68th overall in the third round. He is expected to compete with Andre Hal at free safety next to strong safety Tyrann Mathieu, who played alongside Eric Reid at LSU. Coach Bill OBrien praised Justin Reid for his size, speed and smarts. Reid raised eyebrows at the NFL combine with a 40-yard dash time of 4.40 seconds, secondfastest among safeties. Hes a guy thats a versatile guy who can do some different things for us, help us on special teams and obviously, help us on defense,Ž OBrien said. He just got here, so well see how he does in our system.Ž Reid is hoping that his experience of living vicariously through his brother over the past few years will help him adjust to the NFL. He said he feels like hes coming into the league with the mentality of a thirdyear veteran. He said he watched the Texans most recent five games from last season and has been studying the playbook to enter camp as prepared as possible. I kind of have a feel for how this process goes before having even gone through it,Ž Reid said. Its still different going through it myself for the first time, but it is nice for having that rough road map and having a feel for how these things go.ŽNFL: TexansAP PHOTOFILE In this March 22, 2018, file photo, Stanfords defensive back Justin Reid runs a drill during Pro Day in Stanford, Calif.

After all, while Suns general manager in 2008, he traded All-Star Shawn Marion to Miami for Shaquille ONeal, who hardly fit that focus of play.

Kyrie Irving was dealt to Boston in a blockbuster offseason deal for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. But following a roster upheaval in February the Cavs were left with only five players from last years team that rolled past the Celtics 4-1 to earn a place in the NBA Finals. Irving will watch this years rematch from the sideline after a pair of knee surgeries late in the regular season denied him an opportunity to play this postseason. It was the capstone of an injury-plagued year in Boston that also saw the seasons of Gordon Hayward and rookie Daniel Theis truncated. The one constant has been Clevelands LeBron James, who at age 33 has again found another gear in the playoffs despite the different pieces surrounding him. His 34.3 scoring average in these playoffs is his highest since the 2009 postseason. James can become the sixth player in league history to play in at least eight consecutive NBA Finals. The five others who have done so all played with the Celtics, led by Hall of Famer Bill Russells run of 10 straight appearances. James hasnt yet had a chance to reflect on his own run but says he isnt taking anything for granted at this point in his career. You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered and I think Ive done that in my career,Ž he said. Just trying to add onto it while I can.Ž The series starts Sunday in Boston. This is the eighth playoff matchup between the teams overall, with the Celtics leading 4-3. The Celtics are seeking their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010, when they got past James and the Cavs in the East semifinals. Since Irvings injury, Celtics coach Brad Stevens has relied heavily on veteran Al Horford and a youthful corps that includes 24-yearolds Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart, 21-yearold Jaylen Brown and 20-year-old rookie Jayson Tatum. Horford is averaging career playoff-high 17 points per game, while carrying the leadership torch. Rozier has flourished in a starting role since Irving was sidelined in mid-March. Its carried over into the postseason where he is averaging 18.2 points per game. And Tatum is coming of a series against Philadelphia that saw him average 23.6 points per game „ the second-highest by a Celtics rookie in franchise history. I feel like we more together (than last year),Ž Rozier said. Obviously guys been going down all year and its like you never know whos going to down. But we found a way, we pulled together.Ž As for Roziers prediction for the series? Stay tuned,Ž he said.NBA: Eastern Conference “ nalsCavs, Celtics ready for Eastern Conference “ nals rematchAP PHOTOFILE In this Feb. 11, 2018, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James (23) drives against Boston Celtics Marcus Morris (13) during the third quarter of an NBA basketball game in Boston.

LeBron James is looking to join an elite list of players to appear in eight consecutive NBA finals. Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ Will Powers timing was impeccable Saturday. He picked the perfect strategy with his red tires. He pressed the push-to-pass button at precisely the right moment. He gave Roger Penske his 200th series win at Penskes place „ Indianapolis. Power overcame a late caution period that shrunk his lead, barely won the race off pit lane on the final stop and even drove through some light rain to pull away from Scott Dixon by 2.2443 seconds for his second straight IndyCar Grand Prix victory. Its been a slow start for us, so its fantastic to get the win,Ž the first three-time race winner said. Its amazing to be a part of that history with Penske Racing because its such a deep history.Ž It might be just what the Australian needed. He came into the weekend with only one top-five finish all season, a second at Long Beach. The only other top-10 he had this season was in the season opener at St. Petersburg. But Power won the pole Friday and dominated again on Indys 2.439mile, 14-turn road course. He led a race-high 56 laps including the last 34 after taking advantage of his tire choice to quickly close the gap with race leader Robert Wickens on the front straightaway before making a smooth move to beat the rookie into the first turn on Lap 51. He was on blacks and I was on reds, so I returned the favor and really caught him,Ž Power said. Once I got past him it was pretty straight forward because we were much faster.Ž Power has won three of the last four road-course events at Indy „ all from the pole. Wickens, a Canadian who drives for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, finished third more than 8.1 seconds off the pace. That was the first time where I felt like a true rookie in that final stint because Ive never had to save fuel before,Ž Wickens said. The amount we had to save was something I didnt think was even possible.Ž Power and Dixon didnt have any problems, of course. Dixon, the New Zealander with Chip Ganassi Racing, methodically maneuvered through the field after starting 18th. He managed to get into the top three but never really got close enough to challenge Power. It was definitely a rough weekend,Ž Dixon said. Happy with today. Obviously, we come here to win but congrats to Will and Penske on their 200th win.ŽMOTORSPORTS: IndycarPower play leads Penske to 200th series win in IndyCar GP

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, May 13, 2018 / The Sunhim last week at the Wells Fargo Championship and in the opening two rounds in Ponte Vedra Beach. Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that,Ž he said. I hit a lot of good, quality shots. I hit some shots in the correct spots, which was nice. I hit probably three of the best long irons Ive hit all week.Ž Woods pointed to his tee shot at the 242-yard, par-3 eighth, which landed a little more than 30 feet from the hole; his second shot at the par-5 ninth, which stopped on the fringe from nearly 270 yards out; and his towering approach shot at the par-5 11th, which carried two bunkers and part of a pond before landing on the putting surface and leaving him a lengthy eagle putt. His only complaint was not keeping it rolling. He cooled off down the stretch, making five pars and a bogey over the final six holes. He pushed his drive into thick rough at the difficult par-4 14th and ended up with his lone bogey of the day. He had a chance to get it back two holes later, but lipped out a 10-footer following a stellar bunker shot. To be 8-under there through 12, realistically I probably could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 (under) for the day,Ž he said. But Ill take it.Ž He hit 11 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation. But the biggest different was his putting. He needed just 27 putts, his fewest of the week. A day after making just one putt longer than 6 feet, he missed only one inside 13 feet in the third round. It was nice. I made some putts today. That was basically the difference,Ž he said. Ive hit quality irons before and I was able to convert today and got rolling early. This golf course, as humid as it is right now, these greens are going to be holding all day and I knew that going in and I knew I had to be a little bit more aggressive in there and put the ball in these sections, and I was able to do that.Ž Woods started the day tied for 69th, but moved into fifth after getting to 9 under at No. 12. His jump was the talk of the course, and the already huge gallery following his every move really started growing at the turn. By the time Woods and playing partner Mackenzie Hughes got to 16, the frenzied crowd was dozens deep and craning for a glimpse of golfs biggest star. Jordan Spieth also shot 65 after making the cut on the number, and like Woods, he was at 8-under 208. Woods figured his stay near the top of the leaderboard would be a short one, with the leaders expected to push him back down later in the day. I wont be by end of the day, but its nice to kind of somewhat be up there,Ž he said. These guys are going to go low again. I think that some of the guys will probably shoot better scores than I did out there. Its definitely gettable. Its set up for these guys to go low.ŽWOODSContinued from 1By KAREL JANICEKAssociated PressHERNING, Denmark „ Defending champion Sweden prevailed over Slovakia 4-3 in overtime for its fifth straight win at the ice hockey world championship on Saturday. Denmark kept alive its dream of advancing to the quarterfinals by beating South Korea 3-1, and Latvia remained in contention by downing Olympic runner-up Germany 3-1. In a game of two winless teams, Austria shut out Belarus 4-0 to survive in the top division. Belarus will be relegated. Mika Zibanejad scored the winner for Sweden on a power play with 41 seconds remaining. Trailing 3-1, Marek Daloga and Ladislav Nagy scored for Slovakia to force overtime. Veteran Frans Nielsen, Jesper Jensen and Nichlas Hardt scored for host Denmark, setting off raucous celebrations by the home fans in the Jyske Bank Boxen arena. Its gonna be a hard fight out there on Tuesday,Ž Nielsen said, referring to playing Latvia in the last group game. Kisung Kim scored his fourth goal in six matches but South Korea remained pointless with a game left. Sweden leads Group A in Copenhagen with 14 points. Russia has 10, one more than Switzerland before the two meet later Saturday. The Czech Republic has nine points, one more than Slovakia. Austria has four. Denmark jumped to second in Group B in Herning with 11 points. Canada has 10, Latvia nine, the same as Finland. Finland and Canada played late Saturday. The United States leads the group with 13 points.HOCKEY: World ChampionshipSweden beats Slovakia in OT, Denmark tops SKorea on iceAP PHOTODenmarks Jesper Jensen, right, fails to score past South Koreas Matt Dalton, left, during the Ice Hockey World Championships group B match between Denmark and South Korea at the Jyske Bank Boxen arena in Herning, Denmark, Saturday. ASSOCIATED PRESSMADRID „ Petra Kvitova outlasted Kiki Bertens 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-3 to claim a record third Madrid Open title on Saturday. The two-time Wimbledon winner celebrated the hard-fought match when Bertens hit a backhand long on the final point after nearly three hours. Kvitova previously won on the Madrid clay in 2011 and 2015. This third win took the Czechs career total to 24 titles, including four in the first five months of 2018. The final was evenly contested, with both players getting three breaks each while saving many more chances. The key moment came when Bertens appeared to have swung the momentum back in her favor by pulling back a break in the third set, only for Kvitova to strike right back and recover the advantage for a 5-3 lead. She served out for the championship. It feels great, it does not matter if it is the first, second or third title,Ž Kvitova said. The roof of the Caja Magica was closed without play being interrupted when it began raining in the second set. On the mens side, Dominic Thiem beat Kevin Anderson 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the final. The fifth-seeded Thiem arrived at the semifinals after dealing top-ranked Rafael Nadal his first loss on clay in a year. Thiem beat the sixthseeded Anderson after breaking both of his first service games in each set. He will play secondseeded Alexander Zverev or Denis Shapovalov in Sundays final.TENNIS: Madrid OpenKvitova beats Bertens for 3rd Madrid Open title By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH „ Webb Simpson didnt back off at The Players Championship with another shot he wasnt planning to make, atonement on the islandgreen 17th and a 4-under 68 that stretched his lead to a record seven shots Saturday. He started out with an 8-foot birdie putt on the opening hole. His shot from the back bunker to a front pin on the par-5 11th raced across the green and into the cup for an unlikely eagle. And that island on the par-3 17th was no problem at all. A day after making double bogey to ruin his bid to break the course record, Simpson rapped in a 3-foot birdie putt. It added to a 19-under 197, tying the 54-hole record set by Greg Norman on a soft course in March. And the 32-year-old Simpson has history on his side. No one has ever lost a seven-shot lead in the final round in PGA Tour history. Tiger Woods had his best round on the Stadium Course, playing the final six holes in 1 over for a 65. Jordan Spieth made two bogeys in his round of 65 as both charged up the leaderboard in the morning with big crowds and loud cheers. That got them into the top 10, but they made up only three shots on Simpson. They still were 11 shots behind. Danny Lee was leading the B-Flight with a bogey-free round, but only two birdies on the par 5s on the back nine. He shot a 70 and will be in the final group. Dustin Johnson at least improved his chances of staying for No. 1 with four birdies over his final 10 holes for a 69. He was in third place, nine shots behind and figured all he could do Sunday was go as low as he could and see where it led. Johnson is among three players to lose a six-shot lead in the final round, last fall in Shanghai. And with danger lurking at every corner on the Pete Dye-designed Stadium Course, that would suggest that the crystal and largest paycheck in golf „ just shy of $2 million „ doesnt belong to Simpson just yet. He just hasnt shown any signs of cracking. His only two bogeys came on the toughest par-3 at Sawgrass (No. 8), and a three-putt from 40 feet on the 14th, the toughest hole in the third round. He finished the day with a par putt from 18 feet. A trio of PGA champions „ Jason Dufner (66), Jimmy Walker (70) and Jason Day (71) were at 9-under 207, along with Xander Schauffele (71). Lee was at 204, a score that would have led The Players in all but three of the years since it moved to May in 2007. If you take Webb out of the equation, the golf course is playing about like it always does,Ž Johnson said. Hes the only one thats going really low.ŽSimpson stretches Players lead to 7 shotsBy DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressIn some ways, Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish will always be joined at the hip. Or the elbow. You see, the two have long been among the worlds top cyclists, routinely winning some of the sports marquee races. Sagan is a threetime and reigning world champion, fresh off his Paris-Roubaix victory, while Cavendish trails only Eddy Merckx for the most Tour de France stage wins. Yet in last years Tour, they became embroiled in controversy. They had begun their final sprint in Vittel when Sagans elbow flared out, seemingly running Cavendish into a barrier. The fall broke the British sprinters collar bone, and Sagan was quickly booted from the race. Lawsuits ensued. Sagan argued it was a racing accident. Cavendish bristled. In the end, cyclings governing body decided the crash was merely an unfortunate and unintentional race incident.Ž Still, things havent quite thawed between the two, and it creates an intriguing subplot when they join some of the sports top riders for the weeklong Tour of California. The only other time theyve raced since the Tour de France was Milan-San Remo, where Cavendish crashed early on and was not a factor, so this could be their first chance to spend any time together. Maybe well speak during the race about it. I dont know,Ž said Sagan, with a playful chuckle. The two had always been cordial, if not quite friendly, but the tension between sprint stars was still apparent in separate phone interviews with The Associated Press. Asked about seeing Sagan again, Cavendish replied: Im just here to race.Ž So are some of the other heavy hitters in the sport. Even though the ongoing Giro d Italia draws many big names to the seasons first Grand Tour, the Tour of California has become a favorite proving ground for Tour de France hopefuls. So thats why Sagan and Cavendish will be joined by the likes of Marcel Kittel, Alexander Kristoff and Fernando Gaviria in contesting the sprint stages, beginning with Sundays opening stage in Long Beach. They will have chances on the fifth and seventh stages, and possibly the third-stage finish at Laguna Seca Raceway, where Sagan beat Greg Van Avermaet to the line a few years ago. Its always nice to come to California. I spend a lot of time here,Ž Cavendish said. My first time was 2008, I think, so its great to see the race grow to a World Tour race. Its pretty special.Ž Its special for Sagan, too. He has the most stage victories with 16 „ Cavendish is second with 10 „ and won the overall title in 2015, even though hes not really a general classification rider. Then again, the popular Sagan has embraced riding in America just as the state-side cycling fanbase has embraced the Slovakian star. He won his first world title in Virginia in 2015, prepared for the mountain bike event at the Rio Olympics in the U.S., and just finished hosting a gravel-grinding Gran Fondo in California to raise money and awareness for at-risk youth. Oh well, I feel good here,Ž he said. Im far away from Europe, where people notice me more. Its good for me, work-wise. Its good for training. Nice weather, good altitude training camps. Its just a pretty good place for me here in America.ŽCYCLING: Tour of CaliforniaCavendish, Sagan ready to line up for Tour of California AP PHOTOWebb Simpson celebrates an eagle shot on the 11th hole during the third round of The Players Championship golf tournament Saturday, May 12, 2018, in Ponte Vedra Beach.

And your earnings can easily evaporate if you dont pay attention. Its not what you make; its what you get to keep that counts,Ž says John Gajkowski, co-founder of Money Managers Financial Group in Oak Brook, Illinois. Use a budgeting app or choose one way to make all your purchases „ a debit card or a credit card that you pay off each month „ so you can easily track spending. Say you notice youre really going to town on Lyft and Uber. Designate one weekend a month when you can hail a cab to your hearts content, and use public transportation or other means the rest of the time.2. Letting friends set the agendaYoull need serious willpower to avoid trying to keep up with friends who make more money than you, and who want to go out for drinks or dinner at places you cant afford. When you make plans, get in the habit of being the one to suggest where youll meet, and be honest; a brief, Im on a budget, so lets check out that free Friday night event at the museumŽ will suf“ce.3. Not realizing time is on your side „ to saveYes, you will probably Walmart makes a $16 billion bet on Indias booming economyNEW YORK „ Walmart is making a $16 billion bet on Indias booming economy. Its buying a controlling stake in online retailer Flipkart. The deal gives it direct access to consumers in India, where online sales have exploded. Walmart and Amazon have been fighting to catch up.European businesses most affected by US sanctions on IranMajor companies could see billions of dollars in commercial deals canceled because of the U.S. decision to reinstall sanctions on Iran, experts say. European businesses are likely to be hit hardest. The ultimate impact remains unclear, however, due to the possibility of renegotiations and exemptions, experts say. European countries have vowed to try to keep commerce with Iran flowing.Watchdog agency signals less focus on student loan abusesNEW YORK „ The Trump administration is signaling that it intends to pull back on investigating potential abuses by companies in the $1.5 trillion student loan market. The Consumer Financial Protection NEW YORK (AP) „ Begun two years ago with some big hopes, the option for small businesses to court investors through crowdfunding hasnt turned into the windfall its supporters predicted. A lot of dollars have been raised in crowdfunding, but it has not been the bonanza people have been expecting,Ž says David Lavan, a former Securities and Exchange Commission attorney whos now with Dinsmore & Shohl in Washington, D.C. Some 438 companies have raised $105 million since May 16, 2016, when the “rst websites where companies shares are sold began operating, according to the consulting “rm Crowdfund Capital Advisors. There are now 41 sites. On one, Wefunder, businesses have raised $15 million in the last 18 months, but thats about half the amount hoped for. Another disappointment: About half the investors are customers of the companies and want to support their favorite brewer or app maker or back a movie project „ theyre not the average small investors crowdfunding was supposed to appeal to. Theres not a lot of people out there saying, Gee, we want to invest in startups,Ž says Nick Tommarello CEO of Wefunder. Some of whats held crowdfunding back are legal limitations and requirements, designed to protect investors who may be unfamiliar with the risks of committing money to young companies without proven track records. Companies can raise up to $1 million, and individuals with income or net worth under $100,000 can invest a total of $2,000 in one or more businesses in a 12-month period. Businesses must comply with Securities and Exchange Commission requirements including “nancial and disclosure documents, although the paperwork is far less than what companies complete when theyre going public Daplie, a maker of computer servers thats based in Provo, Utah, has done two successful crowdfunding campaigns that have helped the company avoid traditional venture capital investors and be more independent, president Brian Bourgerie says. If we can crowdfund our way to an IPO (initial public offering) or whatever success, thats the way wed like to do it,Ž he says. But people involved in crowdfunding say the regulations prevent it from becoming a windfall for young companies. Businesses still need legal and accounting help to prepare documents and “nancial statements. The tens of thousands of dollars that may cost can eat into the money they raise, says Ryan Feit, CEO of SeedInvest, another crowdfunding website. Its a signi“cant regulatory burden imposed on very small companies,Ž he says. Preparing for an offering is also a lot of work on top of already running a company, Bourgerie says. You have to come up with a marketing plan, interact with investors and customers, like a mini-business. Its not something anyone should just jump into,Ž he says. The $1 million limit on money raised also is a potential problem. Some companies can easily reach it. And those that surpass their goals, even if theyre below $1 million, are required to turn away investors who try to sign up after that total Begun with big hopes, crowdfund investing proves no bonanzaBy JOYCE M. ROSENBERGTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSSMALL TALKSince Florida Free Legal Answers, a cooperative effort between The Florida Bar and the American Bar Association, was launched one year ago, Florida lawyers have answered more than 2,200 legal questions by Floridians. The virtual legal advice clinic gives low-income Floridians a way to have legal questions answered free of charge and gives lawyers a way to improve access to civil justice through pro bono services for those who would otherwise “nd it out of reach. Florida Free Legal Answers is accessible online 24/7 at ”orida. freelegalanswers.org, matching qualifying participants with lawyers who can answer questions on a wide range of issues. While Florida is not the only state participating in Free Legal Answers, it is leading the country in terms of participation. The average answer rate for other Free Legal Answer sites throughout the country is 65-70 percent, as con“rmed by the ABA, while The Florida Bars rate of response is 85 percent. More than a third of the questions have related to family matters such as divorce, child support, adoption and name change. Another 16 percent were connected to housing or landlord/ tenant issues. Other legal issues include domestic violence, bankruptcy, consumer issues, education, employment, workers compensation, wills and estate planning. Note that Florida Free Legal Answers does not answer questions on criminal law. The Florida Bar has reached out to county libraries, clerks of court and other groups and agencies to help spread the word about Florida Free Legal Answers. Meanwhile, 639 lawyers are participating in the program, volunteering their time on a pro-bono basis. When this program was “rst implemented, the goal was to make justice more accessible to those who couldnt otherwise afford it,Ž said Michael J. Higer, president of The Florida Bar. Now, only one year later, we have made great strides in connecting lawyers willing to help with those who need it most. As we look ahead, our focus will remain on raising even more awareness for the program to further expand its impact.Ž How Florida Free Legal Answers works: Go to https://”orida. freelegalanswers.org to Florida free legal answers expands accessSPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN Brianna McGurranNERD WALLET MONEY | 6BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS HIGHLIGHTS | 6 LEGAL | 6 THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this May 8, 2018 photo, Justin Shelby, CEO of Artichoke, a company that sells an app to help business owners manage their companies, poses for a photograph in Baltimore.

All is great, except for the roads „ they are ugly with oil marks and patched areas. I have asked after this, but it does not seem to be a priority of the board of directors. How do I get the board to address this issue? „ Philip A: Most people who want to get their boards attention try to bring up a new issue at the public board meeting. This is not a good idea and will most likely not work. A board meeting is a business meeting and should be run from an agenda of items known to all in advance so that the members and directors have ample time to research and consider the issues to be dealt with during that meeting. The common tactic of trying to embarrass or ambush the board at the meeting almost always back“res. Simply, the board meeting is not the time to introduce a new issue. The better method is to send your board a letter outlining your concern. Try to be detailed and propose solutions. Explain why you think it is an essential use of the communitys resources, bearing in mind that other residents may have differing priorities. Send the letter by certi“ed mail to ensure it gets the attention it deserves. If it still does not make the agenda, try again, or even better, get some neighbors to write in, too. Many voices will hold more sway than just one. Finally, if, after all of these efforts, the existing board does not share your priorities for the community, you should consider running for the board at the next election. When you are a board member, you are able to help set the agenda and get your ideas pushed through. At least, that is, if enough of your neighbors agree with you.„„„ Gary M.

Big city apartment-dwelling can be a “nancial and emotional drain, but the growing trend of co-living can soften the blow. Co-living comes in many varieties, from shared houses to luxurious mini-apartments. But the basic premise is the same: Renters can save money and expand their social circle if theyre comfortable with smaller digs and shared common spaces. Co-living properties also tend to have more ”exible lease terms and no broker fees, which can add thousands to the cost of a rental. Take Carmel Place, an apartment building in the Kips Bay neighborhood of Manhattan. It opened in 2016 and is run by Ollie, a six-year-old co-living startup. The building has 55 studio apartments that range from 260 to 300 square feet, about the size of a one-car garage. The apartments come with bed linens, towels and furniture designed for tiny living, like a couch that folds into a bed. Residents share a lounge, laundry facilities, a gym and a rooftop terrace. Apartments at Carmel Place start at $2,775 per month, which includes cable and Wi-Fi, regular housekeeping and access to social events. One block away, an unfurnished, 510-square-foot studio in a building with a gym is listed at $3,150 per month. Matthew Alexander has lived at Carmel Place for almost two years. He had been living with roommates but wanted a place of his own, and he liked Carmel Place because it was new and offered amenities like grocery delivery. Alexander has befriended his neighbors through Ollie-planned events like a mixology class in Soho and a tour of a Brooklyn chocolate factory. He doesnt mind his apartments small size, but thinks it would be too small for two people. I like the concept of the micro-studio and minimalist living,Ž said Alexander, 27, who works in human resources at Citigroup. Rooms at co-living spaces are in high demand. Common, a co-living startup with homes in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, says its getting 1,000 applications per week for its 500 bedrooms. Co-living is such a new trend that no one company has perfected it yet, says Bob OBrien, the global real estate sector leader for the Deloitte consulting “rm. He expects a lot of experimentation over the next “ve to 10 years. But he thinks the trend could be here to stay, in part because it appeals to so many people. Even if millennials form families and move to bigger homes, there are plenty of transient contract workers and empty nesters who might “ll the void. Ollie will expand its offerings this month in Long Island City, a neighborhood in Queens, New York. Its opening twoand three-bedroom furnished apartments with kitchens (but no living rooms) on 13 ”oors of a 42-story high rise. It will help match roommates who can pay as little as $1,393 per month for a small bedroom with a shared bath. Residents have access to an indoor lap pool and a gym. In the same neighborhood, Craigslist is advertising a bedroom in a two-bedroom apartment for $2,021 per month. What were trying to do is create Class B pricing for a Class A product,Ž said Christopher Bledsoe, Ollies co-founder and CEO. Ollie brings down costs by “tting a lot of people into its buildings and negotiating with furniture suppliers and other vendors. Bledsoe says two-thirds of Ollies renters are under 35. But most of the rest are over 50. WeLive „ which spun off from WeWork shared of“ce spaces „ is another co-living option, with buildings in Arlington, Virginia, and New York that have 200 apartments each plus shared of“ce space. The fully furnished apartments are a little larger than Ollies, but theres a similar focus on big common areas and amenities like housekeeping. A WeLive studio apartment in Arlington starts at $1,500 per month, or about $100 less than a nearby unfurnished studio listed on Apartments.com.ON THE MONEY As rents soar, co-living becomes a more appealing optionBy DEE-ANN DURBINTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this May 1, 2018, photo, Carmel Place resident Matthew Alexander poses for a photo in the kitchen, dining room, oce space and bedroom of his small co-living studio apartment in New York. 2018 for about $40. WHY: The cardigans toggle button can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. INCIDENTS: Carters received three reports of children putting a detached toggle button in their mouths.

D6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 13, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com make more money in the future. That doesnt mean you should wait until then to save in your companys 401(k). Do it now and youll build a habit; wait too long and saving will feel like cutting back. Its a lot easier to start right at the beginning, because it only hurts for the “rst couple of weeks, and then youre used to it,Ž Gajkowski says. Youll be richer if you start now. Save $200 a month starting at age 23, and at a 6% rate of return you could have about $425,000 at 65; start at 33 and youd have about half that.4. Jumping on quick student loan fixesIn the “rst quarter of this year, 2.6 million federal student loan borrowers paused their monthly payments through forbearance, according to government data. In forbearance, payments are halted, but interest accrues. Youre in the hole a little deeper every day. Thats why it should be a last-ditch option for borrowers whove hit rough times. Instead, ask your student loan servicer if you qualify for deferment “rst, since subsidized federal loans wont accrue interest in the meantime. If not, in most cases, opt for an income-driven repayment plan, says Kevin Fudge, director of consumer advocacy at the nonpro“t research and counseling organization American Student Assistance. Your bill will be in proportion to your income, and if you need a lower payment inde“nitely, your balance will be forgiven after 20 or 25 years.5. Digging deeper into debt for grad schoolGoing to graduate school is more and more common: In 2015, 12 percent of adults age 25 and older had a graduate degree, compared with 8 percent in 1995, according to the Urban Institute. But grad school is not always a sure way to have more “nancial ”exibility in the future, especially if you need to take out more loans to go. Exhaust other ways to pay “rst, like attending part time and taking advantage of tuition assistance from work. Adding to existing student loan debt isnt something you should do lightly; use a student loan calculator to see what youll pay after youre settled in your shiny new job after graduation. It may shock you.Ask BriannaŽ is a column from NerdWallet for 20-somethings or anyone else starting out. Send your questions about postgrad life to askbrianna@nerdwallet. com.MONEYFROM PAGE 1 is met. When Ron Wilsons athletic wear company, Hylete, aimed to raise $1 million last year, it got $1.3 million in offers for its shares. We couldnt take the other $300,000. Our customers were upset,Ž says Wilson, whose company is based in Solana Beach, California. Another issue is an SEC rule that requires companies to register their securities with the government „ essentially going public „ if they have $25 million or more in assets and more than 2,000 investors or over 500 who are not accreditedŽ to speci“c standards of expertise. That rule, an expensive proposition, is a barrier to companies growth, Tommarello says. Bourgerie is also concerned about the rule, though it does give companies that reach the limit two years to get their securities registered. Were going to hit it at some point,Ž he says. Luckily its not the like the day you hit it you have to comply, buts thats something we have to be aware of.Ž Darian Ibrahim, a law professor with expertise in securities, isnt concerned about the drawbacks and relatively slow start crowdfunding investing has had. He thinks its been successful for some companies that are just too young to get professional investor money. And hes also not worried that the general public hasnt latched on to the concept. I dont buy the premise that this is for everyone,Ž says Ibrahim, who teaches at the law school of the College of William & Mary. He noted that most people, including professional investors, arent very good at picking winners among newer companies. Many small companies bypass crowdfund investing and raise money instead on sites like Indiegogo and GoFundMe that dont require paperwork and that have no limits. But having investors is appealing to Justin Shelby, CEO of Artichoke, which sells an app to help business owners manage their companies. Investors who are excited about the company, including those who are customers, become ambassadors for its brand, he says. Artichokes “rst campaign, which ended Monday, attracted 81 investors and $51,885, nearly half its $107,000 goal; Shelby was satis“ed with the amount raised. The company is in Baltimore, far from the technology investor hubs of Silicon Valley and New York, but crowdfunding isnt dependent on geography. Because it potentially deregionalizes access to capital, it could be a game-changer for a lot of companies,Ž Shelby says. The crowdfunding industry is hoping that Congress and the SEC change some of the rules. Tommarello expects the SEC will review its regulations after several years of assessing their impact. And bills have been proposed in Congress to modify some of the requirements and allow companies to raise more than $1 million, but the legislation hasnt had support in both houses and doesnt look to become law anytime soon. Its very challenging to get changes in Washington right now,Ž Feit says.TALKFROM PAGE 1sign up and answer a few questions to see if you qualify to use the service.
