NEWS WIRE TAMIAMI (AP) „ Samantha Fuentes, one of the Parkland school shooting survivors who gave emotional speeches at the March for Our Lives in Washington, has something to celebrate: Three months after the attack, she says My face is “nally shrapnel free!Ž Fuentes tweeted a photo of her face on Saturday, showing a wide smile despite bruises and a hospital bandage stretching from her ear to her mouth. Regardless of the fact I look like I lost a “ght, inside Im winning in a way. Ive been struggling so hard to love my face again, thank you for all your support,Ž she tweeted. The speech Fuentes gave in Mutual admiration as Parkland students celebrate milestonesTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSSEBRING „ When Charlie Wiggins, a World II veteran, participated in a Rotary Club Freedom Flight recently, he was overwhelmed with the recognition he and other local veterans received, he recalled Thursday. Many lined up, thanking, cheering and saluting the veterans on the Freedom Flight as they arrived in Tampa on their way to Washington D.C., he said. And in Washington D.C., the veterans had an opportunity to visit one monument after another. Wiggins said that a man who accompanied him must have pushed his wheel chair around 30 miles. Jennifer McGee, who accompanied Richard Bowers, a Vietnam veteran, on the Freedom Flight this year, said she enjoyed helping to honor the veterans. It was an amazing experience,Ž she recalled. The veterans showed a lot of emotion as they visited Arlington National Cemetery, The Vietnam Wall, The World War II memorial and other such venues, she said. While many or most World War II and Korean veterans received recognition when they arrived home, the situation was different for Vietnam veterans. After Vietnam veterans returned, they said they received wounds from being treated with derision and scorn rather than honor or recognition for having fought for and served their country. It was a different era than when World War II veterans returned from the battle“elds of Europe and the Paci“c and when Korean veterans returned from Asia during the Korean War. For all of those veterans, programs have started in the past few years to give them the honor and recognition they deserve. Currently, the Rotary Clubs that serve portions of Hardee and Highlands County area have taken over providing the honor and recognition to those veterans. The Rotary Clubs of Highlands and Hardee counties organized the ”ight. The ”ight included 28 veterans and 28 people helping them have a good ”ight. Earl Lewis, a Vietnam veteran who went on the ”ight, said he served eight years active duty in the 1960s and later in the National Guard.

The iconic orange and black insect is one of natures key pollinators. Environmentalists say its decline, which they blame in part on climate change, threatens the ecological health of the region, and other crucial insects may be suffering as well. I think in this case, the monarch serves as the old adage of a canary in a coal mine,Ž said Full Sail University President Garry Jones, who helped organize the initiative along with The Nature Conservancy. If theyre declining, its time for all of us to be more awake.Ž To help, Central Florida governments, schools and businesses are encouraging residents to plant milkweed „ the pink, orange and yellow ”owering shrub the insect thrives on „ to boost habitats for the monarch and other pollinators. Environmentalists say insects such as the monarch spread pollen throughout the region, helping create lush natural land and spread plant life. They also are important to the food supply because they pollinate plants that grow potatoes, tomatoes and other produce. Pollinators „ especially bees, ”ies and butter”ies „ those are key to maintaining a healthy, thriving landscape of ”owering plants.

The luncheon was provided by Dr. and Mrs. David Willey. President and CEO of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce Liz Barber welcomed the guests and thanked several dignitaries in the audience for their participation. She turned the microphone over to Alan Jay Wildstein, who said how proud he was of the students accomplishments. Wildstein is well-known for his support of both local scholastic and athletic endeavors. He expressed his own gratitude at being able to take part in the program. Proud parents and educators, loaded down with cameras, were in attendance as eight local students received honors and scholarships. The students were chosen by their grade point average, community involvement and also underwent an interview process. The students chosen were (in alphabetical order): Jordyn Belanger; Rachel Boyd; Miguel Descartin; Sarah Nortelus; Larry Pepper; Sanhitha Raghuveera; Grant Ritenour and Julia Vretta. Highlands County Commissioner Don Elwell introduced each student and listed just a few of their accomplishments. In his usual witty way, he had both the students and the crowd in stitches as he read off their extraordinary GPAs, school and community involvement and future plans. Each student received a tote bag laden with gift cards for food and gas and other necessities, as well as Visa gift cards and practical items to give the pupils a head start. Wildstein wanted to do something special to mark the 25th anniversary. Instead of matching the donated scholarship funds, he double-matched the amount. The amount raised by the audience was nearly $9,000. The total that went to the perpetual scholarship was some $27,000. According to Elwell, the money given away at the luncheon was the highest in 25 years. Three students received a large „ “guratively and literally „ check for $4,000 each. They were Belanger, Boyd and Nortelus. I started the program to be a liaison so that other businesses in the community could come together in a profound way to make a difference in the lives of our students,Ž Wildstein said. He has no plans on ending his role in the scholarship program and sees it as a legacy. I will continue as long as I am here,Ž Wildstein said. Hopefully it will go on long after I am gone.ŽBY KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITER From left; Alan Jay Wildstein, Jordan Belanger, Sarah Nortelus, Rachel Boyd and Liz Barber.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 14, 2018 Everyone has a hero, my new hero is Nicholas DeSanta Jr. Nicholas, or Nick, is a Vietnam veteran. Nick gladly put his life in the hands of the United States Army to help defend our nation at a time that soldiers didnt get the same respect they receive today. Well, thanks to the joint efforts of Hardee and Highlands County Rotary Clubs, Nick and many other veterans of Vietnam, World War II and Korea were taken on a trip of a lifetime; they were the most recent heroes taken on the Rotary Freedom Flight. They “nally received their due respect. For this trip, each veteran is assigned a guardian, or someone to help them with anything they could possibly need. Thanks to the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club, I had the opportunity to participate in this journey that honored these American heroes. I never could have imagined the impact it would have on me as well. To see the reception these heroes received throughout every leg of the journey was amazingly humbling. The debt to an American soldier can never be repaid. You cannot put a monetary value on the experiences many of them have had to deal with. Honoring them with respect and gratitude they deserve is a great start. When you see a solider, past or present, take a second to say thank you for your service and sacri“ce.Ž A kind word can be more valuable than gold. Nick shared some stories with me about his time in the service. It was amazing to hear some of the brave acts he took part in, in the name of American freedom and protection of what is right for human beings overall. I wont share his stories because they were his stories to tell, not mine. But if you ever have an opportunity to meet a veteran, take a minute to listen to them. You will be receiving historical information “rsthand. There are a few men still remaining from World War II who have the “rsthand accounts of what you may read in a history book. Granted, many are not comfortable about discussing certain aspects of their respected wars, but when they do, listen and listen closely. The veterans on this Freedom Flight to Washington, D.C. taught me some valuable lessons. Some I already knew but needed reminding. One of the most important was freedom is not free. There is a price to pay for our freedom that too many take for granted. Each of these men left a part of them on the battle“eld. Their losses were great. This trip gave many of them an opportunity to grow and heal from years of emotional wounds they have carried. It was an amazing trip. They are amazing men. If you ever have an opportunity to take part in Freedom Flight, or some may recall or still call it Honor Flight, I cannot encourage you enough to jump at the chance. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you will return changed. You will get to be a part of something that brings these veterans the respect and admiration they deserve. You will be there to share an emotional journey and be a support for those who willingly supported us with their service. I am glad to have had the opportunity to meet Nick. The spirit in him really came alive on this trip. He seemed to gain a bit of energy as we walked several miles up and down hills and stairs; he truly amazed me as he darted from one spectacular site to another.

I am proud to be part of such an organization. Consider joining today. James Fansler is Lake Placid police chief. He can be reached at .Freedom Is not free Less than a week after Highlands County lost one of its “nest to the hands of a convicted felon, the Florida Department of Corrections has requested a $29.6 million budget cut. Highlands County Deputy Sheriff William Gentry was shot multiple times in the face and head the evening of May 6 by Joseph Edward Ables, 69, a convicted felon with a history of violence towards law enforcement of“cers. Gentry died early Monday afternoon. His funeral service is scheduled for Tuesday at the Highlands News-Sun Center. The public defender who has been assigned to Ables case told the judge at his “rst appearance for the murder charge that the felon is a veteran of the Vietnam War and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, a claim also stated in the arrest af“davit. The af“davit also reports Ables claimed to have blacked out prior to shooting Deputy Sheriff Gentry. His claim to be a Vietnam veteran has yet to be con“rmed. The residents of Highlands County have come together in their support of Deputy Sheriff Gentry, his family and the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce. They have grieved the senseless loss of a peacemaker at the hands of a man who Gentry was questioning for shooting a neighbors cat. The residents have questioned how the convicted felon was able to be in possession of a gun. Now they question how well Ables probation of“cer knew what was taking place at 243 Baltimore Way in Placid Lakes. At the very least, Deputy Sheriff Gentrys death leaves questions about whether Floridas prison supervision and resources are too depleted. Are there enough probation of“cers keeping a close enough eye on the felons scattered across the state? The penny-pinching started when Floridas economy tanked back in 2001. Although the economy has since recovered, the funds taken from DOC have not been restored. Instead, the pennies continue to be pinched from the department. Ables has been on probation since 2016 for aggravated battery. He was classi“ed as a Violent Felony Offender with Special Concern,Ž according to reports. He had what DOC called a clean probation record.Ž Michelle Gladly, DOC director of communications, told the Highlands News-Sun that DOC would examine Ables case after an incident such as this. She also said there is no indication in his two years of probation that Ables behavior warranted a change in his supervision status. Perhaps Ables gave no reason to alarm his probation of“cer, but we cant help but wonder if the elimination of DOC jobs over the past 17 years is something that needs to be looked at under a magnifying glass. We are also concerned over reports that because of the elimination of hundreds of probation of“cer positions, some offenders are allowed to mail in their own probation reports, allowing for few home visits by probation of“cers. The budget request submitted Friday by DOC Secretary Julie Jones indicates the $29.6 million cut will come from 33 contractors who provide mental health and substance abuse treatment and transition services to inmates at the end of their sentence. If the cut is approved, Mark Fontaine, director of the Florida Behavioral Health Association, estimates 600 people will lose jobs, but more importantly an estimated 1,000 inmates will be put back on the streets without training and transition programming. We would like to see the $29.6 million stay in DOCs budget. Find a way to not only help the inmates before releasing them to the streets, but also “nd a way to put more probation of“cers on the streets. Then, before allowing for more cuts in coming years, the state lawmakers need to start adding more to DOCs budget to assure the best protection for Floridas citizens and the best assistance for the states inmates to make sure they are ready for release and watch closely afterwards. Its the least that can be done in honor of Deputy Sheriff Gentry.Pinching pennies doesnt always payOUR VIEW James Fansler INSPIRATIONAL CORNER Tim Smolarick Publisher Romona Washington Executive Editor VIEWPOINTS Karen Clogston Editor Rob Kearly Circulation Director rob.kearly@highlandsnewssun.comRemember in one of my last letters I said the Deep State is planning its next move? This is it and its a joke. Robert Mueller has gone from the investigation of possible collusion with RussiaŽ (I call it the fantasy of collusion) to trying to create a crime concerning the Trump camp. Its a pathetic attempt at setting a trap to make the person answering this set of questions look like a liar and creating a false persona of being guilty of whatever crime they are accusing you of. Anyone of you reading this would be found guilty of anything they (Mueller) wanted to “nd you guilty of. We would all fail this test. Why are they spending millions (of our money) on this and frantically “shing? Hatred for Trump? Or trying to save face of this investigation into Russia collusion that we all know now was only created by a fake dossier out of Russia and paid for by Hillary. I remember all the signs that said Vote Hillary, the sane one!Ž Then why would she pay for an insane dossier like that? Not to mention „ gross. Oh, there is the Russia collusion and lets not forget Uranium One. I can hear Of“cer Barbrady of South Park saying Nope, nothing to see here folks!Ž as the crime is occurring right in front of his face. Well, Mueller and his Deep State friends have had plenty of Hillarys crimes in their faces, turned a blind eye and given us Of“cer Barbradys line. This relationship between Hillary and the Deep State goes way back before Donald Trump ever came along. The problem for the Deep State is, he won. They cant let this Russia thing go because its a distraction from what they all fear most. Actually, its the only thing standing between the president and these corrupt members of our government being under investigation themselves. They never could investigate Hillary because it would lead right back to them. I think Attorney General Jeff Sessions is frozen in fear and not doing what an attorney general should be doing. He is in a terrible spot of further destroying the reputation of the top FBI of“cials and scared to death of Pandoras box, which will open when these top of“cials are put under the microscope. None of them can handle the thought of all their dirty deedsŽ through the years being found out. The Deep State did not form overnight. They have been around a long time and unfortunately, the roots go way deeper than many of us are going to want to see. Power and money is what fuels them and it does not concern them what it costs America down the road. I dont care if youre Republican, Democrat, Independent, etc., we are not a third world countryŽ or a police state.Ž We are the United States of America and when Mueller throws his Hail Mary,Ž guess whos going to catch it in the end zone? The interception by President Donald Trump will put an end to this madness. Robert Gilbert is a Sebring resident.

Holidays are a very busy time for the roads. This is especially true of holidays that focus on speci“c people in our lives such as Mothers Day. People will often travel across whole states to be with the people they are celebrating, and no one knows this better than I do. A large portion of my family lives in north Florida, including three of my siblings and my mom. Over the weekend I traveled from Highlands County to Taylor County, which is between a fourand “ve-hour drive. A majority of the trip is done by driving on highway 27, however, a part of the drive, in the middle, takes place on the Florida Turnpike and Interstate 75. I have been making this trip periodically for the last four years. This means that I am mostly comfortable with the trip, and I am con“dent knowing where I am going and what exits to take. In fact, during the boring long stretches of straight road on 27, which many of us are familiar with, I “nd myself focusing on my thoughts. I will not say that driving “ve hours is a piece of cake. It makes your back ache, your hands get tense from being around the steering wheel for so long, and during the high speed driving on the interstate it is important to be aware of all the other cars around you. But all of that aside, it gives me time to be alone and think, without distractions such as Facebook and Youtube. Taking these trips forces me to unplug and block out communication from others. Rather than being focused on somewhat unimportant conversations or memes, I direct my attention to the road and whatever is going on in my brain at the time. Being forced to pay attention to the road for hours at a time has helped me develop the ability to pay attention even when Id rather be doing anything else. It is imperative to pay attention at all times when driving for long spans of time at once. When you are traveling for so long you will inevitably be sharing the road with a multitude of people. This means that you do not know how well these other people are paying attention to the drivers around you. You also do not know if they are tired, angry, or if there is something else in their life that could impact their driving abilities and cause a dangerous situation on the road. When I was 18, making this trip for the “rst time, I never thought about this. I “gured everyone was driving to the best of their ability at all times, and that this long drive was no different from driving down the street to the lake. Now, at almost 22, I feel very differently. I have come to realize that it is extremely important to be aware of my surroundings.

And decades later when he went on the Freedom Flight, the support moved him. If it didnt bring you to tears you are hard-hearted,Ž he said.VETERANFROM PAGE 1 Washington was memorable not only because she led the huge crowd in singing Happy BirthdayŽ for Nick Dworet, a classmate who was among the 17 people killed in the attack, and who would have turned 18 the day of the march. She also had to interrupt her speech to throw up behind the podium. Fuentes is among the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who have made a point of reaching out to other young shooting survivors as they campaign for gun controls. She was honored with a Freedom of Expression Courage Award by PEN, the literary and human rights organization, for representing an inclusive group of young peopleŽ in that effort. Earlier Saturday, some of her classmates met in Miami with James Shaw Jr., the man who grabbed the hot muzzle of an AR-15 and wrestled it away from a gunman who killed four people and injured four others at a Waf”e House in Tennessee. They too shared photos on social media, expanding a mutual admiration society. I met one of my heros today,Ž Shaw tweeted below his picture with Emma Gonzalez. David Hogg tweeted his own sel“e with Shaw, saying Wow just, wow (at)JamesShawJr9 lots of work ahead but the young people will win.Ž Thank you great meeting you all, lets keep inspiring and bringing ppl together,Ž Shaw responded. Prusak of The Nature Conservancy. If we know the monarch is declining, people can actually take action (to save it).Ž The monarchs worldwide population has diminished by about 80 percent since 1996, according to The Nature Conservancy. Signs of the campaign are hard to miss around town. At Semoran Boulevard at University Drive in east Orange County, a massive mural dubbed Milkweed GalaxyŽ is painted on a building at Full Sail University, facing the highway. It depicts three monarchs among leaves and milkweed, and a butter”y garden is planted in front of it. Jones said the idea of helping the butter”y stemmed from a green initiative at the school, and he later brought it to community leaders for support. Motorists downtown may have seen another mural painted on a building at Orange Avenue and Anderson Street near the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. We think the monarch is a great iconic example of all of those issues were trying to address,Ž said Temperince Morgan, executive director of The Nature Conservancy. The hope is that when they become aware, they will take actions in their personal lives.Ž In Audubon Park, residents are putting milkweed in planter boxes at apartments and businesses. Monarchs seek refuge in the milkweed and lay their eggs on it. Upon hatching, the caterpillars also munch on the plant before their time to cocoon and become a butter”y. Last week, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Winter Park Mayor Steve Leary declared April 19 Save our Butter”ies DayŽ as the two cities helped launch the campaign. University of Central Florida and Rollins and Valencia colleges also have gotten on board. I dont think people understand how important they are to our existence,Ž Leary said. Milkweed is already in place in planters along Park Avenue in Winter Park, and the city has put up signs and installed orange lights in two fountains in Central Park to bring attention to the initiative. Schools such as Dommerich Elementary in Maitland and Monarch Learning Academy in College Park also are planting butter”y gardens on their campuses as part of the campaign. Businesses such as Foxtail Coffee, East End Market and Red Light Red Light will be distributing packages of milkweed seeds to customers as well. Morgan said monarchs will show up quickly after the milkweed is planted, sometimes within hours or days. We think the monarch is a great iconic example of all of those issues were trying to address,Ž Morgan said. Its emblematic of what our pollinators as a whole are faced with.ŽA city that was not to beHere will be one of the biggest, busiest and most populous Florida cities. The new Highlands County settlement will become the trading center for the most pro“table truck farming, poultry raising and dairying section in the south,Ž boasted the advertisement. This was at the peak of the Florida Land Boom. These claims were highly believable coming from two successful partners that developed three cities in Dade County making them real estate tycoons and multi-millionaires. They met in 1916 and became business partners (Curtiss-Bright Company) and each was famous in his own way. Glenn Hammond Curtiss from Hammondsport, New York, American aviation and motorcycling pioneer and founder of United States aircraft moved to Miami to start the “rst ”ying school. He is credited with building the “rst seaplane for the United States Navy known as the ”ying boatŽ that could land and take off on ships. He was an inventor with 400 patents, an entrepreneur and pioneer in the world of aviation. James Harris Bright from Missouri, a prominent cattleman acquired a ranching empire and is the founding father of Florida horse racing at Hialeah, Florida. He was a man no bigger than a jockey at “ve feet two inches and 105 pounds. The area chosen for their new city was “rst seen from the air by Glenn Curtiss. It seemed ideal for a farming hub as he looked over the tall grassy prairie land. At the time Florida imported most of its meat, dairy and vegetables so there was a huge demand for local agriculture to feed the states exploding population. This was a very desolate area but was strategically located between both Florida coasts. In 1925 CurtissBright Company purchased 28,000 acres along both sides of Hwy 70 straddling Highlands and Glades Counties. They would later expand to over 70 square miles. Curtiss and Bright spotted a nearly perfect ring of palm trees encircling what is now Hwy 70 and County Road 721. They picked this spot to for the town site and commercial center for the great agriculture powerhouse they envisioned. It was given the name Brighton in honor of its founder James Harris Bright. They wasted no time in getting started. They dug dozens of miles of canals and built access roads and an 83-room rustic hotel. The hotel opened in 1925. Visitors came from far and wide. They raised beef and grew a huge variety of vegetables under the name of Brighton Valley Farms owned by the Curtiss-Bright Company. Thousands of acres were owned by 35 individual vegetable growers for the area. In 1930, Dixie Sugar purchased several hundred acres to raise sugar cane and constructed a syrup manufacturing plant in Brighton. All sales were handled through the CurtissBright Company. They would produce, store, market and transport the eggs, milk crops and meat products. The products were sold primarily to Miami with fresh shipments arriving every morning trucked overnight from the cold storage plant at Brighton. On July 23, 1930, things began to unravel with the sudden death of Glenn Curtiss and the death of the Curtiss-Bright Company. Even though there were promises that nothing would change. It did. The Florida Land Boom had collapsed and deepened into the depression. In June of 1931, the power plant and electrical system at Brighton was sold to Florida Power and Light. The vision of the thriving community was no more. The resort hotel continued with well-todo society folks, honeymooners and business people. The dude ranch and hunting expeditions remained popular getaways. In July 1940 the hotel was deeded to the Miami YMCA but a year later the hotel would burn to the ground. Lykes Brothers bought nearly all of the CurtissBright land and much more owning 337,000 acres in Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee Counties. Lykes of“ce is located on the old Brighton Valley Hotel campus and seven miles away is the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation and Casino. Some folks say if it wasnt for the Florida Land Boom followed by the Depression and the death of Glenn Curtiss, Brighton could have become Highlands Countys really big city.

It has an entrance threshold that you cant get in. Lake and Land Realty is not accessible. Another director is (James) Fansler, the police chief. He is going on the chamber Facebook page and promoting businesses that are not accessible.Ž Reinhardt did tell Fansler that the sidewalk near the Lake Placid Police Department was not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and said it was “xed in short order, although still not compliant. Reinhardt said he will address the matter with Fansler tonight. There was a scenario where there is a sign in the window that says ramp available.Ž Reinhardt said there was no way to tell the owners that he needed the ramp. In such a scenario, a doorbell or a phone number to call would need to be added, according to Reinhardt. Reinhardt explained that Florida Statute 533.513 says that local government and code enforcement shall enforce the provisions of this chapter. Well, the provisions of that chapter is the ADA. That does means not whenever they feel like it or get around to it. I told them what they can do is to look for some money that is available,Ž Reinhardt said. They have wasted four months; they have not done a thing. There are “ve speci“c grant possibilities that are tied directly to the ADA. Five different grant sources; three are for rehabbing buildings and two are for individuals to help make their homes accessible. In addition, there is a grant possibility in section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1983. The chamber could have been telling its members that they can spend money making their property accessible and it wont cost them a penny because under section 44 of the Internal Revenue Code, they get a dollar for dollar tax credit.Ž Reinhardt said he has not had anyone take him up on his offer to act as a free consultant. In the Feb. 12 regular Town Council meeting, Town Attorney Bert J. Harris III said, Randy has offered his service, free to work with the Chamber and the businesses because there are apparently a lot of different ways to “x a pre-existing condition. Is that a fair statement?Ž Harris asked Rheinhardt. Reinhardt agreed and a few minutes later said, If anybody has any questions, I did this stuff for a long time. I can probably save you the heartbreak of reading through 500 pages. Feel free to take advantage of that; dont take advantage of me, take advantage of the expertise.Ž Brantley said there is some level of frustration on getting the appropriate information to their Chamber of Commerce members as to what is required, suggested or federally mandated. He said the Chamber was putting a link on the website with ADA requirements for the members. An email blast will also go out with the information. As to his own business, he offers curbside service. His clients beep their horn and they come out to the vehicles. He agreed that having a sign on the business fronts with a phone number to ask for assistance is a good idea. Fansler said he thought the town was doing a great job in becoming ADA compliant.

But for now, hes still a rookie and Will Power was able to use that to his advantage when he captured the IndyCar Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday. That was the “rst race where I kind of felt like a true rookie there in that “nal stint because Ive never had to save fuel before,Ž Wickens said after the race. Weve kind of practiced it a little bit in warm-up where you do like one lap of fuel save. But the amount of fuel that we were having to save to make that work was something that I didnt even think was possible.Ž Scott Dixon was able to get past Wickens for second place and is known as one of the best fuel-saving drivers around. Power started from the pole and led to the midway point when he and Wickens exchanged several passes, with Power taking the lead for good on Lap 51 of the 85-lap race. A full-course caution on Lap 56 helped Dixon get past Wickens, who help on for third. Wickens had raced in the DTM series from 2012 to 2017 and made the move to IndyCar this season, where hes facing a bit of a learning curve. Ive never raced in a category where you had to save fuel,Ž he said. In winter testing you always put it on the list, like oh, were going to practice a long run with fuel save, and then obviously the engineers get greedy, you end up doing setup change, setup change, setup change and you run out of time, and then we dont actually end up doing it.

Six days later, Strader added the second of his backto-back B.A.S.S. victories by winning the Eastern Open at Norman. He joins a select group of B.A.S.S. tournament anglers who have won two or more consecutive events. The feat has not been accomplished since Kevin VanDam, won the 2016 Bassmaster Elite at Cayuga Lake followed by the 2016 Bassmaster Elite Series Classic Bracket on the Niagara River. The last two weeks have been unbelievable,Ž Strader said. At the beginning of the year I was not sure if I had made the right decision to switch (tournament organizations). What I want to tell everyone is if your gut tells you to do something, do it.Ž Strader did that. Though he was two bass short of a “ve-bass tournament limit on the “nal day, with only 8 pounds, 13 ounces, it provided him with a three-day total of 40-0.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 14, 2018 something that I have to work on because obviously they were hitting the same numbers that I was to try and make it to the end, but their pace was way quicker than mine.Ž Power said Wickens has plenty of talent and will be a force to be dealt with. Hes obviously very good,Ž Power said. I think big fuel save is probably a new thing for him, so Dixon and myself have been doing it our whole careers and were used to trying to extract lap time and fuel save. Hes been racing at a high level for a long time, but hes de“nitely a guy that will be a champion in IndyCar. I have no doubt in my mind, at some point in the right situation, and that could be this year he will be a champion.Ž Power won his third IndyCar Grand Prix, but has yet to win the Indianapolis 500, which will be held over the course on May 27. Im very upbeat and have a lot of con“dence, and Ive had my eye on the 500 anyway since last year,Ž Power said. Really, the new car, its going to be about sorting it out, and its a chance to get ahead of everyone else.Ž While Power is no stranger to the Indianapolis 500, its something new for Wickens, who is looking forward to the entire spectacle of the race. Ive dreamed of doing a 500 since I can remember,Ž he said. Theres been so much history, so many good drivers. I mean, anything can happen there. To be honest, I just want to take it, like Ive been saying all along, just kind of one day at a time, because every day in IndyCar seems to be different.Ž Wickens has spent plenty of time on a racing simulator getting ready for the Indianapolis 500. Some drivers hate it, some drivers dont mind it, and Im one that doesnt mind it,Ž he said. But at the end of the day, its virtual reality, so its not super accurate sometimes, and sometimes its not perfect.Ž But “rst, Wickens is going to try and clear his head from the IndyCar Grand Prix, although that might not be too easy. I think Ive de“nitely carried over some of my stuff from DTM to here, but theres still so many things that Im learning as I go,Ž he said. Yeah, its all a work in progress, but right now I think as I get done here Im going to talk to the engineers about how I can save fuel better because thats the only thing I can think about right now.Ž The “rst of“cial practice session for the Indianapolis 500 takes place Tuesday, with the “rst qualifying session on Saturday.POWERFROM PAGE 7 they quit, and hope for another one.Ž Strader primarily used his signature series Stan Sloans Zorro Bait Company 5/8-ounce Bango Blade spinnerbait in the exact color and blade combination,Ž along with a Zoom Bait Company White Split Tail trailer for his last two B.A.S.S. triumphs. He noted that he caught two key bass, of the 13 bass he weighed, on a Hitch colored Zoom Swimmer swimbait with a Trokar 1/4-ounce weighted swimbait hook. Along with the “rst place prize of a Triton TrX 19 powered by a Mercury 200 Pro XS, Strader won the Power-Pole Captains Cash Award of $500 for being the highest-placing angler who is registered and eligible and uses a client-approved product on his boat. He also quali“ed for the 2018 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens Championship, Oct. 18-20, at a location to be announced later. Fellow Elite Series angler Jared Lintner “nished second. He brought in “ve bass for 10-5, giving him a cumulative weight of 36-6 „ 3 pounds, 10 ounces behind Strader. In third place was Sam George and Will Evans of Winter Haven “nished fourth with 34-7. After “nishing in the Top 12 seven of the previous nine B.A.S.S. events, Chad Smith won the co-angler division by catching a three-bass limit of 5-9 to “nish with 19-5. Smith won a Triton TrX 179 powered by a Mercury 115ELPT Four Stroke motor valued at $27,000. The Phoenix Boats Big Bass Award of $750 on the pro side went to Allen Brooks with a 6-4 largemouth caught during the semi“nal round of competition. Paul Coburn and Austin Bonjour tied with a pair of 5-5 largemouth to split the Phoenix Boats Big Bass Award of $250 on the co-angler side. The eight winners from each tournament in the Eastern and Central Opens divisions will qualify for the Opens Championship. The Top 10 anglers in the point standings from each division will also compete in the championship.BASSFROM PAGE 7 Hargrove, the 23-yearold of Tsawassen, B.C., Canada, comes to CTMP with the Toronto-based Pfaff Motorsports squad after an impressive start to the Pirelli World Challenge GT campaign. The two-time Canadian Porsche GT Cup champion and North American open-wheel star debuted in PWC with a spectacular double-win weekend in the streets of St. Petersburg driving the potent No. 96 Pfaff Motorsports/Castrol Porsche 911 GT3 R. In addition, Hargrove has teamed with veteran Porsche racer Wolf Henzler in the Pfaff Motorsports machine at the GT SprintX (60-minute, two-driver) events and recorded one second, two thirds and a fourth in the four contests. Coming into the Pirelli World Challenge with Pfaff Motorsports was an exciting adventure for me,Ž said Hargrove. We felt we had a good program for the Pirelli World Challenge series and the double wins at St. Petersburg really kicked off the season. Racing with Wolf in the SprintX races has been a learning experience too. He has so much experience on the various tracks in North America as well as with Porsche. Now, leading the GT points entering CTMP, the excitement has jumped up with the team racing in its home track and at a track where I have had success in the past. I really enjoy CTMP and I think we will have a strong effort in the two PWC Sprint events in the Victoria Day Speedfest.Ž Another Toronto-based sports car organization which should be right in the hunt at CTMP is the R. Ferri Motorsport Ferrari team with veteran sports car star Vilander at the wheel of the popular No. 61 R. Ferri Motorsport Ferrari 488 GT3. The two-time 24 Hours of Le Mans champion trails Hargrove in the GT point standings 155-145 coming into the CTMP weekend. Vilander, a noted factory Ferrari star, has scored two victories (GT SprintX with Miguel Molina) and three runner-up “nishes as well as two pole positions in the “rst seven PWC GT races. Overall, it might look easy at times or like we have it under control but its always a hard battle, a hard “ght,Ž said Vilander, who also serves as an analyst on the Formula One telecast in Finland. Already this year you have the Mercedes, Porsche, Bentley and Ferrari winning races in the GT class, so these are exciting races. The CTMP track is a demanding circuit. Its dif“cult to balance the car because there will be a track where we struggle a little bit more than other cars. Our main thing is to be consistent. The R. Ferri Motorsport Ferrari knows the CTMP track well too.Ž Meanwhile, maybe the one to watch at CTMP is the local star, Morad, the former open-wheel racer with a 24 Hours of Daytona victory and two GT SprintX wins last year. The personable racer (and an DJ on the side) has shown lightning fast performances in qualifying and the races, but some tough luck has cost him possible wins in 2018 in the No. 2 CRP Racing/DeVilbiss Mercedes-AMG GT3. I was so happy with the pole lap at VIR two weeks ago,Ž said Morad, 28. It was probably one of the best laps of my life. Its too bad because I had I had a better lap before and caught some traf“c. We have been close to winning races this year but have had some tough luck, especially at Long Beach and VIR. But Im excited to run my home track again at CTMP. I believe the Mercedes can been very competitive there. Plus, it is always great to racing in front of friends and family at the historic track. Being third in the GT championship, we can move up with strong runs in the two 50-minute Sprint races next weekend.Ž Morad has won open-wheel titles (Formula BMW) and sports car championships (Canadian Porsche GT Cup) as well as racing in Indy Lights, A1GP, Formula Atlantic and GP3 in Europe. He placed second in the 2017 PWC GT SprintX points, losing out by just three points for the title. While the Canadian ConnectionŽ trio of Hargrove, Vilander and Morad must be listed as the favorites at CTMP in the GT Sprint division, an excellent group of challengers will be nipping at their heels including Long Beach GT Sprint winner Daniel Mancinelli of Italy in the No. 31 TR3 Racing Ferrari 488 GT3, endurance veteran Michael Christensen of Denmark in the No. 24 Alegra Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R and the 2016 GT overall champion Alvaro Parente of Portugal in the No. 9 K-PAX Racing Bentley Continental GT3. Pirelli World Challenge GT practice rounds at the Castrol presents Victoria Day Speedfest begin Friday at 10:10 a.m. with qualifying set for Saturday at 9:20 a.m. The 50-minute Race 1 for the PWC GT division gets underway on Saturday at 1:55 p.m., while Race 2 is set for Sunday (May 20) at 4:05 p.m. RACEFROM PAGE 7 PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE PHOTODaniel Morad races the No. 2 CRP Racing//DeVilbiss Mercedes-AMG GT3.adno=3577831 If theres an air of superiority to these units, its because theyre the quietest, most ef“cient models we make.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, May 14, 2018 Hopefully you realize that in order to look, feel, and function your best as you age, its imperative that you take good care of your thyroid gland because it plays a role in many plaguing symptoms from head to toe, including hair loss, chronic fatigue, skin problems, insomnia and weight gain. The trouble is that lab tests lie, and dont usually con“rm what youre feeling. I had to “nd that out myself the hard way, and thats why I wrote, Thyroid Healthy. Ever since I dealt with a bout of hypothyroidism years ago, and healed myself completely, Ive been a big advocate of supplements for thyroid support. One quick thing, your T4 has to lose one iodine atom to form T3, thats what the numbers stand for. Its the T3 that works and helps energize you, burn off fat, grow pretty hair beautiful and improve memory. Converting that T4 to T3 is a big deal. All the T4 in the world wont cure hypothyroidism if you dont activate it to T3 and to do that, you need certain cofactors and nutrients like the following: Probiotics You need probiotics to convert the T4 hormone you make (or take in the form of medication). As much as 20 percent of your inactive T4 is converted to T3 in your gut, if your digestion is working well. Unfortunately, many of us have woefully inadequate gut health because we are lacking friendly bacteria. Zinc. Zinc is critical for activating T4 to T3 in the liver and kidneys and it improves the function of speci“c enzymes (deiodinase) which activate thyroid hormone. Remember, you want to activate it by converting the T4 your gland spits out, into T3. Selenium. Like zinc, this mineral is also needed for certain deiodinase enzymes which convert T4 to T3. Selenium is also needed to balance excess thyroid activity that may be caused by internal or external stressors. Catalase. Hydrogen peroxide is sometimes high in people with thyroid disorders, so neutralizing it is important, especially if you have Hashimotos. Catalase is as an antioxidant to reduce hydrogen peroxide that you make in your liver. Its extremely bene“cial to your blood stream, to your thyroid and to all your organs. By the way catalase helps break down alcohol, thats why some people take it for hangovers, lol! Hydrogen peroxide is a free radical that can take your body over. Hydrogen peroxide has been studied and its implicated in oxidative stress disorders and many chronic illnesses. Ashwagandha. This incredible herb stimulates production of both T4 and T3 in your body. It also nourishes your adrenal glands, so if you feel like you cant cope with stress, this is a wonderful botanical to consider.

My daughters still think I drive too slowly. Yet some things do change, especially in the “eld of nutrition. For example, we used to think that de“ciencies of vitamin B-12 were rare except among strict vegetarians or people with an autoimmune disease called pernicious anemia. New evidence now indicates that if youre on this list, you may be at risk for a B12 de“ciency: 50 years or older (we can lose the ability to absorb vitamin B12 as we age), vegetarian or vegan (B12 is not found in plant foods), take metformin (a diabetes medication that can reduce the bodys ability to absorb B12), have any type of intestinal disorder or stomach surgery such as gastric bypass (vitamin B12 needs a well-functioning gut to be absorbed), take anti-acid medicines or aspirin, ibuprofen or similar types of pain relievers (some meds can reduce the effectiveness of stomach acids to digest and absorb B12). Although it is only required in micro amounts, vitamin B-12 is vital to the formation of healthy red blood cells and it helps build everything from genetic material (DNA) to hormones and other proteins. Perhaps most notable is B12s role in our nervous system all the pathways that help us to think, move and speak. A de“ciency of vitamin B12 can cause the brain to malfunction and lead to dementia, for example. Vitamin B-12 (also known as cobalamin because it contains the mineral cobalt) also helps keep our homocysteine levels in check.

Monday, May 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 If you watched beach volleyball at the last Olympics or skating at the Winter Games, you may have noticed the multicolored strangely shaped tape that some of the athletes had on shoulders, ankles and other body parts. Is this a new decorative fad? No, it is Kinesio tape. Invented by a Japanese chiropractor, Dr. Kenzo Kase, the tape protects sprained or damaged muscles and joints in a manner that is closer to their natural function than the old method of taping. Prior to the advent of Kinesio Tape and its competitors, a sprained joint was taped with stiff tape that supported it but allowed very little motion. Kinesio Tape is much more elastic. It stretches up to about 40-60 percent of its length. It also sheds water and dries very quickly allowing the patient to shower. The adhesive used is relatively non-irritating. This allows the tape to be worn for a longer period of time. The three types of taping in the USA are the previously mentioned white athletic taping. This is used for short periods of time, that is, the duration of a football game for example and is removed as soon as the game is done. Another is McConnell Taping. This uses a rigid cotton foam mesh and is an accepted way of doing neuromuscular re-education. The tape is generally removed after a short period of time. The third is the Kinesio taping method. The tape is often used by physical therapists who are working on the rehabilitation of joints and muscles because Kinesio tape allows them to move the joint or muscle while protecting them. There is unfortunately a lot of hypeŽ mixed in with the true bene“ts and very few independent scienti“c studies to back up any of the claims. The tape is low risk, inexpensive and many of the patients using it as part of a therapeutic regimen do get pain relief. It probably neither helps nor protects uninjured joints or muscles. Nor does it enhance or improve performance in athletic contests. The bottom line is that if your therapist suggests using it as part of a treatment regimen, it probably will help with very little risk if it does not. Other uses are just for decoration. Dr Diana Carr is an orthopedist specializing in the treatment of hand and shoulder. She practices in Sebring. Why do athletes wear that tape? ColumnistDIANA CARR When we think of spring we think of baseball and family outings. Maybe you just think of heading north. When I think of spring, I also think of a time in which our industry tries to raise awareness of the need to hear and communicate better. May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. In Florida, life calms down just a little bit as many of our Northern neighbors head home. We take a breath and focus on the need to reach out and educate those in our communities about their communication needs. Life is always better when our lives are spent with family and friends. Listening to stories and reminiscing down memory lane is very important for our feelings of well-being. So lets talk about this just a bit. First and foremost, having good hearing is taking an active role in protecting your hearing. You exercise to keep your heart and lungs in good shape. You wear proper workout gear „ gloves for a better grip with the weights, sunglasses to protect your eyes, the right running shoes to protect your feet. It is important that if you are around loud sounds such as guns, construction equipment, music, and race cars, for example, you should be wearing sound plugs or custom made ear molds to dampen the damaging sound pressure. Did you know that if you are exposed to noise and then when the noise stops, your ears ring, that you have done damage to the hearing hairs in your inner ear? The better you protect your hearing, the longer it will last you. Celebrating Better Hearing And Speech Month is a perfect time to get that “rst hearing exam. Get your ears looked at by a professional. You get your vision checked annually. You should get your hearing checked annually. How do you know if your ears are full of wax, or something else, if no one has ever checked. Having a problem understanding people? Is your spouse or friends getting irritated? Then make the call. It could be a minor problem. Maybe not. It may be a serious problem that needs a medical referral to an Ear Nose & Throat doctor. Your hearing evaluation results provide bene“cial information about your health that is made available for your primary care physician. Did you know that the results of your hearing test can indicate a possible cardiac issue? Once you get your results, get a demonstration of what better hearing sounds like. Have your hearing health care provider put you in noise with some hearing instruments on and experience what its like to hear your loved ones as they really sound. Make sure you take a loved one with you to the appointment so that you can experience the difference. Hearing well makes us all happier. This is because at the end of the day you wont be tired from straining to hear. Your spouse, family and friends will appreciate that you care about them because you want to be able to communicate with them. We only have one life. We have people that we enjoy talking and laughing with. It is human nature to be social. We spend many resources on our health. One of the most prevalent problems that adults have as we head over the 50Ž age mark is hearing loss. It is one of the most preventable problems and also one of the most correctable. Your life can be quiet, dull even, stressful, lonely or it can be lively and fun. Listen to the sounds around you. Are they crisp and clear? They should be. Talk to a hearing health care provider today. To hear better is to live better.Better hearing and speech Roseann KieferHEARING MATTERS HEALING TRACTIONHAND DELIVERED...Right Where You NEED It!

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in the body. It is formed by the nerve roots in the lower back branching off the spinal cord and coming together to form one giant nerve. It begins in the low back, travels down through the pelvis and the back of the leg, and into the lower extremities. The nerve runs underneath a pelvic/ hip muscle called the piriformis which, when tight or in spasm, can put pressure on the sciatic nerve and cause pain. When the sciatic nerve is pinched or is sending pain signals to the brain, it is called sciatica. There are many circumstances, however, that can cause pain in the sciatic region. If the lower lumbar vertebrae are misaligned or there is a narrowing of the foramen (holes) where the nerves from the spine branch out of the spinal cord, this can cause sciatic symptoms. In general, there are two main reason why a person has or can have sciatica. Either the skeletal system in the lumbar, sacrum and pelvis are misaligned or the muscles that are around the nerve are too tight and pinch it, or the muscles in the body are too tight in general, which can pull the skeletal structure out of place and pinch the nerve. We live in a one directional world. Most people only walk forwards, drive with their hands in front of them on the steering wheel, brush their teeth with the same hand, and golf swing in the same direction every time. None of these actions are wrong but it only requires the same muscles to go in that same one direction. The human body is comprised of over 600 muscles and it can move in any direction. Everything in the body has an opposite: left, right, up, down, side to side, and even diagonally. All of these muscles are supposed to be equally balanced in strength and tension but, unfortunately, the everyday tasks of life do not require us to move in every direction equally. This can cause misalignment and tension throughout the entire body which, over time, can cause pain in multiple areas that might not always be from the original reason or source of the pain. Chiropractors mainly work with the skeletal system in the body and can assist in adjusting the bones to alleviate the structural pinching of the sciatic nerve or other nerves that form the sciatic nerve. Physical therapists mainly work with building and balancing the strength of the muscles that line the sciatic area, which keeps the skeletal system in line. Massage therapists mainly work with manually manipulating the muscles and soft tissue in the body to release tense muscles that pinch the nerves and release muscles that pull the skeletal system out of place. All of these health providers can assist in rebalancing the body in order to stop the reason the body is in pain, but routine maintenance can prevent the body from being in pain in the first place.Why do I have sciatica?TIMOTHY WHEATON AND ASHLEY TINKERGUEST COLUMNISTS HEAL BY TOUCH MASSAGE & FLOAT THERAPYTimothy Wheaton and Ashley Tinker 2531 U.S. 27 S.

Monday, May 14, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7 homocysteine are associated with in”ammation that can lead to heart disease. For most of us, the most reliable sources of B12 are animal foods including “sh, poultry, meat, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt. Just 3 ounces of cooked clams, for example, provides more than a thousand times our recommended intake of vitamin B-12, according to the USDA Nutrient Database. Other reliable sources include B12 supplements or forti“ed foods such as cereals and nutritional yeasts. People with pernicious anemia or other disorders that prevent them from absorbing vitamin B12 in the stomach may need to rely on regular injections of this important nutrient directly into the blood stream. How much vitamin B12 we need in a day may also be changing. New evidence suggests the current recommendation may be too low to accomplish all its vital functions. In the meantime, here is a hint when talking to your doc about testing your vitamin B-12 levels. Blood tests for vitamin B-12 may not tell the whole story, according to recent research. According to the National Institutes of Health, additional laboratory tests which include homocysteine and methylmalonic acid values may also be needed to reliably detect low levels of vitamin B-12.VITAMINFROM PAGE 1 three hours may be suffering from dehydration. A sense of listlessness or irritability in infants and young children is another potential indicator of dehydration. Adults who experience extreme thirst may be suffering from dehydration. Less frequent urination and a dark-colored urine when going to the bathroom also is symptomatic of dehydration. Fatigue, dizziness and confusion are some additional indicators of dehydration in adults. Can dehydration be prevented?Dehydration can affect anyone, but there are ways to prevent it, even among those people who are especially susceptible to dehydration, such as children and older adults. Parents of babies who are vomiting or experiencing diarrhea should speak with their pediatricians and discuss the ways to prevent such children from becoming dehydrated. Breastfeeding more frequently and giving the baby a medicine such as Pedialyte can prevent the occurrence of dehydration in babies who are sick. The Mayo Clinic recommends parents take a proactive approach to preventing dehydration in young children, meaning they should not wait until dehydration occurs or symptoms of dehydration present themselves before taking action. Adults who want to prevent dehydration should drink plenty of ”uids and include lots of fruits and vegetables in their diets. Such foods contain lots of water and can help the body avoid becoming dehydrated. The Mayo Clinic recommends that athletes begin hydrating the day before engaging in strenuous exercise. A telltale sign of a well-hydrated body is clear, diluted urine. Athletes should replenish their ”uids during exercise and continue doing so even after they “nish working out or competing. Older adults should make a concerted effort to drink more ”uids when suffering from minor illnesses, which is when such men and women most commonly become dehydrated. Drink extra water when battling in”uenza, bronchitis or bladder infections, remembering that feelings of thirst often surface only after the body has become dehydrated.HYDRATEFROM PAGE 1 Email Us Your News Tips To: Activated charcoal is a form of carbon processed to have small pores that increase adsorption. Simply Supplements says adsorption involves the adhesion of atoms, molecules and ions on the surface of a larger absorbent, while absorption forces them to dissolve into the the absorbent. Healthline notes that activated charcoal is made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, coal, olive or sawdust. The activationŽ occurs by heating these materials at high temperatures to make them more porous. While activated charcoal is still being studied, it has been used as a treatment for acute poisoning. Some people rely on it as a hangover remedy, but there is no evidence to support its ef“cacy in such instances. Activated charcoal is available in capsules or tablets to treat digestive gas problems and is used in toothpaste to whiten teeth and reduce stains. Users are advised to research activated charcoal and discuss its use with their physicians “rst. Metro Creative ConnectionsWhat is activated charcoal?

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 14, 2018 What is our intention?Ž What is our expectation of bene“ts when we join a yoga class? Yoga is about choice. What we desire to learn in a yoga practice involves facing our personal reality about body, mind and emotions. Learning yoga poses brings our attention inward to assess our strengths and limitations. We may discover physical dif“culties in moving into a posture; this is expected as we learn about our body. Although many yoga poses can be utilized in our everyday life, there are some postures that require using muscles we do not often use, maybe because we have told ourselves that we cannot twist, bend or lift in this way, so we avoid it. This is normal. Humans avoid what may bring discomfort but does it mean we should avoid discomfort in learning a yoga pose that improves our posture, the way we stand, sit and walk? This is where we begin. A yoga instructor can offer an option to break muscle memoryŽ or the habitual ways we move ingrained into our muscles. Choosing a type of yoga practice that “ts you is based upon your intention.Ž We do you want to gain by taking yoga? Yoga awakens consciousness through deep breathing into through various postures. Learning yoga postures lengthens muscles/tendons that can be tight from lack of use. More movement in the body increases circulation of new blood to tissues/muscles and fresh life-giving oxygen. If poor posture prevents or blocks this ”ow, we place restrictions on our health. There are many types of yoga practices you can experience; see what “ts for you by attending different classes. What is your intention? Do you want a fast paced, ”owing practice or slower movements in holding the body into the exact form of the pose initiating new muscle memory?Ž Those who have been practicing yoga for many years are able to easily ”ow into the correct form of a posture at a precise pace. Those who are new to yoga may have a preference for a slower learning process. Changes in the body/mind occur over a longer period of time. It is not instant, thus, yoga is about repetition and practice. Yoga presents us with healthyŽ options focusing on positive vibratory frequenciesŽ in our mind and body. We are made of energyŽ just as the Earth and can learn to direct that energy towards positive outcomes in our life.

The News Wire Monday, May 14, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER OHIO WOMAN, 113, NOW THE OLDEST PERSON IN THE USSee page 2. JERUSALEM „ Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, even as it bolstered its forces along the Gaza border and in the West Bank in anticipation of mass Palestinian protests of the move. A day before the embassys formal opening, Israel hosted a gala party at its Foreign Ministry with President Donald Trumps daughter Ivanka, her husband, Jared Kushner, and other American VIPs. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trumps bold decisionŽ in upending decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital. Its the right thing to do,Ž a smiling Netanyahu told the jubilant crowd. Trump announced his decision on Jerusalem in December, triggering a joyous reaction from Netanyahus nationalist government. The move infuriated the Palestinians, who claim Israeliannexed east Jerusalem as their capital. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas halted ties with the Trump administration and declared it un“t to remain in its role as the sole mediator in peace talks. The rival Hamas movement, which controls the Gaza Strip, has been staging a series of weekly demonstrations against a crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the territory. Those protests are to climax Monday, with tens of thousands of people expected to gather along the Israeli border in an event timed to coincide with the U.S. Embassy move. Hamas has signaled that large crowds, numbering perhaps in the thousands, might try to break through the border fence to realize the right of returnŽ to lost homes. Both the embassy move Israel kicks off US Embassy celebrationBy JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSThe Broward County, Fla., school districts repeated, emphatic „ and it turns out, false „ statements that Nikolas Cruz had not been in a controversial disciplinary program “t a pattern of an institution on the defense and under siege. Facing signi“cant legal and political exposure over the Feb. 14 shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the district has tried to keep information from the public and put out untrue and misleading statements, frustrating parents who say this is the time for maximum transparency. The district is “ghting in court against the release of school surveillance video. It ”atly refused to provide any records regarding the shooting to the news media, in a possible violation of the states open-records law. Superintendent Robert Runcie has blocked critics, including parents, from his Twitter account. More than two months after the shooting, a Broward sheriffs detective told a state commission on school safety that he was still waiting for the district to provide all of Cruzs disciplinary records. The worst came last week, when Runcie acknowledged that his forceful denials that Cruz had been involved in the Promise program, which is intended to provide an alternative to the arrest of students for minor offenses, were wrong. It would appear that the district is more interested in protecting their programs than they are the students and teachers in our schools,Ž said Ryan Petty, whose 14-year-old daughter, Alaina, School district shuts down information after Parkland shootingsBy DAVID FLESHLERSUN SENTINELSURABAYA, Indonesia „ Coordinated suicide bombings carried out by members of the same family struck three churches in Indonesias second-largest city Sunday, police said, as the worlds most populous Muslim nation recoiled in horror at one of its worst attacks since the 2002 Bali bombings. At least seven people died at the churches in Surabaya along with the six family members, the youngest of whom were girls aged 9 and 12, according to police. Another 41 people were injured. Indonesias president condemned the attacks as barbaric.Ž National police chief Tito Karnavian said that the father detonated a car bomb, two sons aged 18 and 16 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother and her two daughters wore explosives. Karnavian said the family had returned to Indonesia from Syria, where until recently the Islamic State group controlled signi“cant territory. IS claimed responsibility for the attacks in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency. It didnt mention anything about families or children taking part and said there were only three attackers. Indonesias deadliest terrorist attack occurred in 2002, when bombs exploded on the tourist island of Bali, killing 202 people in one night, mostly foreigners. But the fact that children were involved in Sundays attacks in Surabaya shocked and angered the country. Jemaah Islamiyah, the network responsible for the Bali attacks, was obliterated by a sustained crackdown on militants by Indonesias counterterrorism police with U.S. and Australian support. A new threat has emerged in recent years, inspired by IS attacks abroad. Experts on militant networks have warned for several years that the estimated 1,100 Indonesians who traveled to Syria to join IS posed a threat if they returned home. Karnavian identi“ed the father as Dita Futrianto and said he was head of the Surabaya cell of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, an Indonesian militant network af“liated with IS that has been implicated in attacks in Indonesia in the past year. WASHINGTON (AP) „ President Donald Trump said Sunday he has instructed his Commerce Department to help get a Chinese telecommunications company back into businessŽ after the U.S. government cut off access to its American suppliers. At issue is that departments move last month to block the ZTE Corp., a major supplier of telecoms networks and smartphones based in southern China, from importing American components for seven years. The U.S. accused ZTE of misleading American regulators after it settled charges of violating sanctions against North Korea and Iran. ZTE, which has more than 70,000 employees and has supplied networks or equipment to some of the worlds biggest telecoms companies, said in early May that it had halted its main operations as a result of the departments denial order.Ž Trump, who has taken a hard line on trade and technology issues with Beijing, tweeted on Sunday that he and Chinese leader Xi Jinping are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!Ž In a separate tweet, the president said the two economic giants were working well together on trade, but past negotiations have been so one sided in favor of China, for so many years, that it is hard for them to make a deal that bene“ts both countries. But be cool, it will all work out!Ž ZTE has asked the department to suspend the seven-year ban on doing business with U.S. technology Family carried out church suicide attacks with childrenTrump tells Commerce Department to help Chinese companyBy TUJI MARTUJIASSOCIATED PRESS ATTACKS | 3 EMBASSY | 4 PARKLAND | 4 AP PHOTORiders from the Samson Riders, an Israeli motorcycle club, arrive on a road leading to the new U.S. Embassy during a group ride from the old embassy in Tel Aviv, ahead of the ocial opening, in Jerusalem, Sunday.

PAHOA, Hawaii „ A new “ssure emitting steam and lava spatter spurred Hawaii of“cials to call for more evacuations on Sunday as residents braced for an expected eruption from the Kilauea volcano. The Hawaii County Civil Defense issued an alert that an 18th “ssure was discovered along a road west of a major highway on the Big Island. Residents on that road were being told to evacuate, and two nearby community centers were serving as shelters for people and pets. Popping, exploding and sloshing sounds could be heard from the “ssure as far as 1,500 yards away. The “ssures, ground deformation and abundant volcanic gases indicate eruptions on the eastern ”ank of Kilauea are likely to continue. The latest opening came the morning after two other “ssures opened on Saturday. Most of the lava outbreaks have occurred in and around the Leilani Estates neighborhood, where molten rock has burst through the ground, destroying more than two dozen homes and resulting in evacuation orders for nearly 2,000 people. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the 17th “ssure, which opened Saturday night, was spattering but no ”ow had formed. The 16th “ssure had spilled lava into an open “eld earlier in the day. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported the “ssures opened just east of the Puna Geothermal Venture energy conversion plant, where steam and hot liquid are brought up through underground wells and the steam feeds a turbine generator to produce electricity. Plant workers last week as a precaution removed 50,000 gallons of a ”ammable gas stored at the site. Geologists warn that Kilaueas summit could have an explosive steam eruption that would hurl rocks and ash miles into the sky.Noisy Hawaii volcano lava fissure spurs more evacuationsBy CALEB JONESASSOCIATED PRESS HAWII COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT VIA APThis Saturday image released by the Hawii County Fire Department, shows an aerial view of ssure 16, located about 0.8 miles northeast of ssure 15, top left, in the Big Island of Hawaii.


The Sun /Monday, May 14, 2018 Page 3 He identi“ed the mother as Puji Kuswati. The attacks occurred within minutes of each other, according to Surabaya police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera. Karnavian said Futrianto drove a bomb-laden car into the citys Pentecostal church. Kuswati, with her two daughters, attacked the Christian Church of Diponegoro, he said. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists. The sons rode a motorcycle onto the grounds of the Santa Maria Church and detonated their explosives there. A witness said the woman arrived at the Diponegoro church carrying two bags. At “rst of“cers blocked them in front of the churchyard, but the woman ignored them and forced her way inside. Suddenly, she hugged a civilian, then (the bomb) exploded,Ž said the witness, a security guard who identi“ed himself as Antonius. At Santa Maria, a Catholic church, shattered glass and chunks of concrete littered the entrance, which was sealed off by armed police. Rescuers treated victims in a nearby “eld while of“cers inspected wrecked and burned motorcycles in the parking lot. A street merchant outside the church said she was thrown several meters (yards) by the blast. I saw two men riding a motorbike force their way into the churchyard. One was wearing black pants and one with a backpack,Ž said the merchant, Samsia, who uses a single name. Soon after that, the explosion happened.Ž President Joko JokowiŽ Widodo visited the sites and described the attacks as cowardly actionsŽ that were very barbaric and beyond the limit of humanity.Ž In Jakarta, Indonesias capital, the Indonesian Church Association added its condemnation. We are angry,Ž said Gormar Gultom, an of“cial with the association, but he urged people to let the police investigation take its course. Indonesias two largest Muslim organizations, Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah, also condemned the attacks. Mangera, the Surabaya police spokesman, said police responded about 9 p.m. to an explosion in a residential building in Sidoarjo, a district bordering Surabaya. He con“rmed TV reports that three people, including a child, were inside the “fth-”oor ”at at the time of the blast. A bomb squad was checking the building, he said, and hundreds of people were evacuated from the neighborhood. Separately, national police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said police fatally shot four suspected militants and arrested two others early Sunday in West Java towns. It wasnt clear whether the shootings were connected to the church attacks. They have trained in order to attack police,Ž Wasisto said, identifying the militants as members of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah. Jakarta police placed the capital and surrounding areas on high alert, while the transportation ministry warned airports to be on guard. The church attacks came days after police ended a hostage-taking by imprisoned Islamic militants at a detention center near Jakarta in which six of“cers and three inmates died. IS claimed responsibility. Despite Indonesias crackdown on militants since the Bali bombings, the country has faced a new threat in recent years as the rise of IS in the Middle East invigorated local networks. Christians, many of whom are from the ethnic Chinese minority, make up about 9 percent of Indonesias 260 million people.ATTACKSFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE ONE/WORLDMUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan „ An old wooden bridge over a fast-moving river in Kashmir collapsed as dozens of students were taking pictures on it, leading to at least “ve deaths on Sunday. Javed Ayub, a senior tourism department of“cial in Pakistaniadministered Kashmir, said 14 students were rescued after the bridge collapsed and that civil and military rescue teams were searching for 11 others. Ayub said rescue workers recovered the bodies of “ve drowned students. The students, most in their early 20s, were enrolled in the medical college at Faisalabad in eastern Punjab province. He said some students from a college in Lahore were also among those who fell into the river. We hope for the best but it will be unlikely to “nd the remaining (students) alive as the water ”ow is very high,Ž said Ayub. Ayub said the hanging wooden bridge was designed for locals to use in small numbers. The touring youths have not realized the danger despite a warning board asking people not to overload the old structure,Ž he said. Police of“cial Mohammad Siddiq said eight of the rescued students were injured and airlifted to Muzaffarabad in a military helicopter for medical aid. He said the incident took place near the picnic point of Kundal Shahi, approximately 47 miles north of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir. The Neelum Valley is a popular tourist destination in the Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir. Kashmir is split between Pakistan and India, both of which claim the Himalayan region in its entirety.Bridge collapses into river in Kashmir; 5 dead, 11 missingBy ROSHAN MUGHALASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOPakistani rescue workers search for bodies at the site of bridge collapse in Kundal Shahi, around 47 miles north of Muzaarabad, the capital of Pakistani controlled Kashmir, Sunday.

WASHINGTON „ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that the United States will need to provide security assurancesŽ to North Koreas Kim Jong Un if the adversaries are to reach a nuclear deal, describing the stakes of President Donald Trumps upcoming summit with Kim. Pompeo met with Kim last week in North Korea, helping set the stage for Trumps historic summit with the North Korean leader in Singapore on June 12. Trumps goal is for North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons in a permanent and veri“able way. In return, the U.S. is willing to help the impoverished nation strengthen its economy. Pompeo was asked on Fox News SundayŽ whether the U.S. was in effect telling Kim he could stay in power if he met the U.S. demands. Pompeo said: We will have to provide security assurances, to be sure.Ž The top U.S. diplomat did not elaborate, but his comment could refer to the type of assurances North Korea has sought in the past. A statement issued during international negotiations with North Korea in 2005 over its nuclear weapons development said the United States af“rmed that it has no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula and has no intention to attack or invade (North Korea) with nuclear or conventional weapons.Ž The North has said it needs nuclear weapons to counter what it believes is a U.S. effort to strangle its economy and overthrow the Kim government. Make no mistake about it, Americas interest here is preventing the risk that North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon into L.A. or Denver or to the very place were sitting here this morning,Ž Pompeo said from Washington. Thats our objective, thats the end state the president has laid out and thats the mission that he sent me on this past week, to put us on the trajectory to go achieve that.Ž Pressed in a separate interview on whether the U.S. would seek regime change, Pompeo said only time will tell how these negotiations will proceed.Ž The president uses language that says well see,Ž Pompeo told CBSs Face the Nation.Ž The American leadership under President Trump has its eyes wide open.Ž North Korea said Saturday that all of the tunnels at the countrys northeastern nuclear test site will be destroyed by explosion in less than two weeks, ahead of Kims summit with Trump. Observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed, the North said. Pompeo praised it as one step along the way.Ž John Bolton, the presidents national security adviser, described the types of steps that North Korea would need to take as part of a denuclearization process, including the potential involvement of a processing center in Tennessee. The implementation of the decision means getting rid of all the nuclear weapons, dismantling them, taking them to Oak Ridge, Tennessee,Ž Bolton said in an interview with ABCs This Week.Ž It means getting rid of the uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities,Ž adding the process would also need to address North Koreas ballistic missiles. I dont think anybody believes youre going to sign the complete ending of the nuclear program in one day. But we are also very much interested in operationalizing the commitment as quickly as possible,Ž Bolton said. Bolton said in an interview with CNNs State of the UnionŽ that North Korea should not look for economic aid from us. I think what the prospect for North Korea is to become a normal nation, to behave and interact with the rest of the world the way South Korea does.Ž The prospect for North Korea is unbelievably strong if theyll commit to denuclearization. Thats what the president is going to say,Ž he said. Pompeo said privatesector Americans could help rebuild North Koreas energy grid and develop the countrys infrastructure. He described the possibility of American agriculture being used to support North Korea so they can eat meat and have healthy lives.Ž South Korea has said Kim has shown an interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic bene“ts. But it remains unclear if Kim would ever fully relinquish the weapons he probably views as his only guarantee of survival. North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of denuclearizationŽ that bears no resemblance to the American de“nition. The North has vowed to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan. The White House has said withdrawal of thousands of U.S. troops from South Korea is not on the table.ŽPompeo: US will need to give Kim Jong Un security assurancesBy KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESS KOREAN CENTRAL NEWS AGENCY/KOREA NEWS SERVICE VIA AP, FILEIn this Wednesday le photo provided by the North Korean government, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, left, shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a meeting at Workers Party of Korea headquarters in Pyongyang, North Korea.

LUCKNOW, India (AP) „ A powerful dust storm, heavy rain and lightning struck parts of India on Sunday, killing at least 23 people, injuring more than 40 and taking the death toll in similar unseasonal storms this month to 157. The storm, with a wind speed of up to 70 kilometers per hour (45 miles per hour), demolished dozens of homes and uprooted trees and power lines in northern Uttar Pradesh state, government of“cial Avneesh Awasthi said.

BERLIN (AP) „ An intoxicated mans ill-advised decision to spend the night on a freight train caused commuter chaos in Munich as police had to shut down all traf“c at a busy station to look for him. Munich police said Monday they received an emergency call at 5:20 a.m. from a man who said hed woken up in a container on a train near the Pasing station, Munichs third largest, and couldnt get out. But police say the 25-year-old city man was so drunk when he entered the container he wasnt sure where it was. Police shut down all rail traf“c and went train-to-train, eventually “nding him at 6:20 a.m. In total, 86 trains were affected with 1,280 minutes of delays, 37 cancellations and 21 partial cancellations. The man faces trespassing-related charges.ODD NEWS Drunken mans choice of bed causes commuter chaos exporters. By cutting off access to U.S. suppliers of essential components such as microchips, the ban threatens ZTEs existence, the company has said. The U.S. imposed the penalty after discovering that Shenzhen-based ZTE, which had paid a $1.2 billion “ne in the case, had failed to discipline employees involved and paid them bonuses instead. ZTEs case dates to before Trump took of“ce in January 2007 but the Commerce Departments decision came amid worsening trade tensions between the U.S. and China centered on technology-related intellectual property. Just ahead of trade talks earlier this month, the Trump administration handed China a list of hard-line demands that trade experts said could make it even more dif“cult to resolve the disputes between the worlds two largest economies. At the trade meetings in Beijing, Chinese of“cials said they raised their objections to ZTEs punishment with the American delegation, which they said agreed to report them to Trump. A reversal of the ZTE decision could temporarily tamp down trade tensions by allowing the Chinese to make concessions to the U.S. without losing face,Ž said Eswar Prasad, a professor of trade policy at Cornell University. Trump may have recognized that backing off on ZTE clears the path for him to claim at least a partial victory in the US-China trade dispute based on the concessions the Chinese seem prepared to offer.Ž Trump is seeking to cut the chronic U.S. trade de“cit by $100 billion and gain concessions over the policies that foreign companies say force them to share technology in order to gain market access.COMMERCEFROM PAGE 1 was killed by Cruz during his rampage through the school. As a father, I would ask the district to please be completely transparent so we can make sure this doesnt happen to any other children in any other schools in Florida.Ž School district spokeswoman Tracy Clark said the district has provided accurate information to investigators, the press and the public as fast as possible and any suggestion that the district is not being forthcoming is either based on a misunderstanding or misinformation.Ž The district continues to focus on responding in a timely and accurate manner to the unprecedented number of public records requests, media requests and subpoenas related to the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,Ž she said in an email. In addition, we have coordinated numerous interviews with employees as part of the various ongoing investigations. Both the State Attorneys Of“ce, through the Broward Sheriffs Of“ce, and the Public Defenders Of“ce have been given complete copies of the records related to Nikolas Cruz that have been gathered to date.Ž Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the shooting, said he was surprised to learn that the district still has not provided all of Cruzs records to investigators. At a meeting of the state commission set up after the shooting to improve school safety, Pollack asked a Broward sheriffs detective whether all of the records had been provided. I believe that some of the items we are seeking to get from the school board, we have received some,Ž Detective Zachary Scott said. But I do not believe weve received everything yet.Ž It caught us all off guard,Ž Pollack said in an interview last week. We didnt believe it. Its past two months now already. A lot of the people on the committee couldnt believe it.Ž From the school district, Pollack said, theres no honesty at all.Ž Sheriffs Of“ce spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright declined to say whether the school district has supplied the records and whether it is cooperating with the investigation. School district spokeswoman Clark said the district provided investigators with all of the records it could “nd so far. Although the Broward Sheriffs Of“ce has not produced every record requested by the news media, the agency has released dozens of documents, including reports of incidents at Cruzs home and documents on its own ”awed response. But the school district has issued a blanket refusal to release any documents, including emails about the shooting among the districts leadership and notices of intent to sue by victims and their families, despite Floridas broad public records law. The school district, joined by the Broward Sheriffs Of“ce, tried to stop the release to the media of surveillance video from the school. The districts lawyers argued in court that the videos would threaten school security by revealing blind spots in the surveillance system. The district partially dropped its opposition after all sides agreed to an initial release of videos that showed the inaction of a Broward sheriffs deputy who resigned after the incident. And the district lost in court when Broward Circuit Judge Jeffrey R. Levenson ordered the release of more videos, saying any potential harmŽ to the schools security system was outweighed by the strong public interest in disclosure.Ž The school district, along with the state attorneys of“ce, is appealing. Questions about the Promise program had been a source of frustration for district of“cials, as well as students and parents. Many felt that the program had been unfairly seized upon as a distraction by conservative opponents of gun control, who preferred to focus on blundering by the district and the sheriffs of“ce. At a Feb. 28 news conference, Runcie insisted that Cruz had no connection to the program. This particular individual was never a participant in the Promise program. He wasnt eligible for it,Ž Runcie said. Theres no connection between Cruz and the districts Promise program.Ž In a March 24 column in the Sun Sentinel, Runcie called the reports of a Promise connection to Cruz fake news,Ž lumping them with the false charges that Stoneman Douglas survivors were crisis actors.Ž County Commissioner Michael Udine, a former mayor of Parkland, said the hedged responses from the district are a disservice to the community. People want the whole truth, they want the whole truth quickly and they want the complete truth out in the open,Ž he said. Everythings coming out at some point. The half-answers that have come out „ whether he was in the Promise program at one time or not completely in the program „ is not the right way to handle it. Full and complete transparency is whats called for here.ŽPARKLANDFROM PAGE 1and the protests have symbolic timing. Trump has said the opening is meant to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israels establishment. The Palestinian protests also mark the date as the anniversary of their naqba,Ž or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands of people ”ed or were forced from their homes during the war surrounding the event. About two-thirds of Gazas 2 million people are descendants of Palestinian refugees. A mass border breach could trigger potentially lethal Israeli force. Forty-two Palestinians have been killed and over 1,800 have been wounded by Israeli “re since the weekly protests began on March 30. The U.N., European Union and rights groups have accused Israel of using excessive force against unarmed protesters. Israel says it is protecting a sovereign border and accuses Hamas of using the unrest to plan and carry out attacks. Marchers have thrown stones and burned tires at the fence and ”own ”aming kites over it to try to set Israeli “elds on “re. On Friday, a Palestinian crowd attacked the main cargo crossing between Israel and Gaza, disrupting shipments of cooking fuel, gasoline and building materials, and causing millions of dollars in damage. Israeli of“cials said it could take weeks or months to repair the crossing. Unfortunately, the crossing is closed today and will remain closed until the foreseeable future due to severe damage caused by Palestinian rioters,Ž said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman. It is still unclear how long it will take to “x and replace the necessary parts.Ž The Israeli military announced that it bolstered forces on the Gaza border with combat battalions, special units, intelligence forces and snipers. Israeli warplanes also dropped lea”ets in Gaza, urging residents to stay far from the fence. You deserve a better government. You deserve a better future,Ž the lea”ets said. Do not approach the security fence nor participate in the Hamas display that is putting you in risk.Ž A high-ranking delegation of Gazas Hamas rulers headed Sunday to Egypt, amid diplomatic efforts aimed at containing the mass rally. But one of the Hamas participants, Khalil al-Hayya, said there were no breakthroughs and the march would go on as planned Monday. The army said it was also reinforcing its troops in the West Bank with several combat battalions and intelligence units in case of possible unrest there as well. Sundays celebrations coincided with Israels Jerusalem Day,Ž the 51st anniversary of what it refers to the citys uni“cationŽ during the 1967 Mideast war. Israel immediately annexed east Jerusalem „ home to the citys most sensitive Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites „ in a move that has not received international recognition. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state. In an annual ritual, tens of thousands of Israelis marched through Jerusalems Old City to mark the day. Revelers sang, danced and waved Israeli ”ags. Earlier Sunday, Netanyahu told his Cabinet that there would be a series of decisionsŽ to build up Jerusalem, including its contested eastern sector. Shortly after, the government approved construction of a $57 million cable car system that will link west Jerusalem to the Old City. Although Trump has said his declaration does not set the “nal borders of the city, his recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital has been perceived by both Israel and the Palestinians as taking Israels side in the most sensitive issue in their con”ict. Only two countries, Guatemala and Paraguay, have said they will follow suit. Most of the world maintains embassies in Tel Aviv, saying the Jerusalem issue must “rst be resolved. In a re”ection of the deep sensitivities, dozens of countries „ including Britain, France and Germany „ skipped Sunday nights celebration at the Israeli Foreign Ministry. Netanyahu, who frequently clashed with President Barack Obama, has found a welcome partner in Trump. The new administration has lined up solidly behind Netanyahu in his dealings with the Palestinians and delighted him last week when it withdrew from the international nuclear deal with Iran, Obamas top foreign policy achievement. Addressing the crowd Sunday evening, Netanyahu said Israelis would be eternally gratefulŽ for Trumps decision on Jerusalem. Thank you, President Trump, for your bold decision. Thank you for making the alliance between Israel and the United States stronger than ever,Ž he said. Netanyahu said Trumps decision recognized a 3,000-year Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the truthŽ that Jerusalem will be Israels capital under any future peace deal. Its been the capital of our state for the past 70 years. It will remain our capital for all time,Ž he said. Kushner and Ivanka Trump sat in the front row near Netanyahu during the ceremony but did not speak. Netanyahu called their presence a national and international statementŽ that touches our hearts.Ž U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Trump was ful“lling a key campaign promise by moving the embassy. The United States has no greater partner than Israel,Ž he said. Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of J Street, a liberal pro-Israel group in the U.S., expressed concern that the embassy move would back“re. He accused the White House of putting the interests of a small group of hard-liners ahead of the larger interest of promoting peace with the Palestinians. Making a move like this removes the U.S. as a credible mediator,Ž he said. The Palestinian ambassador to Washington sharply condemned the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in a statement Sunday. Tragically, the US administration has chosen to side with Israels exclusivist claims over a city that has for centuries been sacred to all faiths,Ž said Husam Zomlot.EMBASSYFROM PAGE 1 TALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Florida Gov. Rick Scott is visiting Israel and will be on hand for the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. Scott was scheduled to leave late Saturday for his trip. He is expected to return on Tuesday. John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, said that Scotts chief of staff is accompanying the Republican governor on the visit. Scott backed the decision of President Donald Trump to shift the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The move has ignited Palestinian protests and raised fears of a further outbreak of violence. Trumps daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner will preside over the embassy ceremony on Monday. Scott has previously made two of“cial trips to Israel, including a trade mission last December. His trip is being paid by the state.Gov.

Fuentes is among the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who have made a point of reaching out to other young shooting survivors as they campaign for gun controls. She was honored with a Freedom of Expression Courage Award by PEN, the literary and human rights organization, for representing an inclusive group of young peopleŽ in that effort. Earlier Saturday, some of her classmates met in Miami with James Shaw Jr., the man who grabbed the hot muzzle of an AR-15 and wrestled it away from a gunman who killed four people and injured four others at a Waf”e House in Tennessee.

The Sun /Monday, May 14, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband and I are both 74 and in general good health. He never washes his hands when he comes in from working as a public accountant. He doesn't wash his hands when he sneezes, or after touching meat and poultry when he cooks. He smokes and is a functioning alcoholic. He says it's not necessary to wash fruit before you eat it and tells me I don't know what I am talking about. He has been on Lipitor for several years and eats steak almost every night. On the other hand, I wash my hands when I come in from work and before preparing meals, and have always washed fruit before eating it. What's his secret? Does he have strong genes? „ T.M. ANSWER: Eating well and taking good care of yourself don't guarantee a long, healthy life. The converse is true as well. I have heard so many stories about Aunt Martha (or Gertrude or Helen), who drank, smoked and lived on bacon until she was 105, but your lifestyle does give you a better chance at living longer and healthier, and of feeling better right now. Smoking increases the risk of dying from any cause. A 74-yearold man who has smoked all his life has about the same risk of dying as an 82-year-old nonsmoker. One can do a similar risk analysis with diet. But some people, through a combination of good genes and good luck, manage to live long, healthy lives despite poor lifestyle choices. Even though some individuals will not have the expected outcome, smoking is still bad. So is eating steak every night. Washing (or at least rinsing) produce is a good idea. DEAR DR. ROACH: Why do you need a prescription for a nebulizer? „ M.J.M. ANSWER: A medical nebulizer machine allows a person at home to use a liquid medicine (especially albuterol) in a mist form that is easy to use, delivering the medicine continuously for ve minutes or so. The advantage over a handheld inhaler is that it gives a larger dose and you don't need to coordinate the timing of breathing and activating the inhaler. It does seem redundant to require a prescription for a machine that you need prescription medication for. Medical devices are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, so it is sold by prescription only. However, a quick look at an online store nds several "vaporizer systems" that include cups for medication, so it is possible to bypass the need for a prescription. I do think that a prescription for albuterol remains important. Many people use albuterol too much without having any real control over their asthma, so a knowledgeable provider is critical. DR. ROACH WRITES: A recent column on sudden sensorineural hearing loss generated many letters, most of them about the possibility of a tumor of the nerve that goes to the ear, called the eighth cranial nerve. The most common tumor is called a Schwannoma. It would be unusual for a Schwannoma to provoke such a sudden loss of hearing as the reader described. A stroke in that part of the brain, due to a blockage in the artery that supplies blood to the eighth nerve, is a rare event that can look like sudden sensorineural hearing loss. However, enough people wrote in that they were found to have brain tumors causing their symptoms that I felt I should bring up the possibility, and to note that an MRI scan is appropriate for people with sudden sensorineural hearing loss.DEAR ABBY: My daughter is 19 and lives with me. She is seeing a 26-year-old man who has a child with another woman he didn't marry. When my daughter goes out with him, he keeps her out until 3:30 a.m. or later. I had a conversation with him, and he assured me he would make sure she is home before midnight, to no avail. I don't think he's good for my daughter. Should I forbid her from seeing him or let her make her own decision? We are NOT going to raise a baby out of wedlock! „ Teen's Dad DEAR DAD: Tread carefully because if you forbid her to see this man, she may rebel by moving out and in with him. You have the right to make clear to her that under no circumstances will you raise a baby out of wedlock, and that if he gets her pregnant, she'll be on her own. "Remind" her that what she's doing is irresponsible and will keep her from succeeding if she doesn't straighten up. DEAR ABBY: I need advice about my son. He has started doing bicycle training with a coach and some other cyclists, and he likes it a lot. But I hear about accidents with bicycles, and every time he goes, I am frightened for him. My husband was a cyclist for many years, and he encourages him. I want to do the same, but fear stops me. What must I do? „ Fearful In Nicosia, Cyprus DEAR FEARFUL: A mother's instinct is to protect her young. The problem is, parents can't protect their children in every circumstance, and cycling is a mode of transportation being promoted everywhere. It's a plus your son is working with a coach, presumably one who understands the road conditions in your city. Under the circumstances, you are doing the best you can and you are doing the right thing. There is no requirement that you "must" encourage your son as his father is doing. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about the billions of dollars of food that is thrown out every year in America. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Americans waste millions of tons of food each year. It gets dumped in a landll, where it rots and produces methane gas. "What can we do to avoid wasting food? You can freeze almost anything, so why not freeze leftovers? Or plan how much food will be needed for a meal, and purchase that amount and no more. Even if food is on sale, don't buy it unless you know you'll use it all." „ Melissa F., Berkeley, Calif. Dear Heloise: Old tires can be hung on a farmer's fence with "no trespassing" written on it, or paint a tire purple, which is a sign to hunters meaning "no hunting allowed." Old tires also can be put on top of farm implements for weight. „ Kent R., Rago, Kan.Are personal sanitary habits essential to good health?

Page 8 The Sun / Monday, May 14, 2018 NATION NEWS LOS ANGELES „ Avengers: In“nity WarŽ is still ruling the box of“ce in its third weekend in theaters, easily beating out the mom-themed fare. The Walt Disney Studios on Sunday estimates that In“nity WarŽ has added $61.8 million from North American theaters bringing its total domestic earnings to $547.8 million. Globally the “lm has now grossed over $1.6 billion„ $200 million of which was from its massive opening in China this weekend. Its now the “fth highest grossing “lm of all time worldwide. The superhero blockbuster overpowered newcomers like the Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the PartyŽ and the Gabrielle Union thriller Breaking In,Ž both of which were strategically timed to debut on Mothers Day weekend. Both “lms drew overwhelmingly female audiences, too. In a distant second, Life of the PartyŽ earned an estimated $18.5 million, which is a few million short of some of McCarthys other comedy collaborations with husband Ben Falcone like TammyŽ and The Boss.Ž It also got similarly mixed reviews from critics. The Warner Bros. release stars McCarthy as a woman who decides to go back to college with her daughter. The studio is thrilledŽ with the results. Its escapist movie palace fare,Ž said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution. The modestly budgeted Breaking InŽ took third place with $16.5 million, over-performing most industry expectations despite lackluster reviews. The “lm stars Union as a mom who has to “ght to save her kids from a group of home invaders. Its an edge-of-the-seat thriller that you may not always associate with Mothers Day, but it worked extraordinarily well,Ž said Jim Orr, Universals president of domestic theatrical distribution. The Universal Pictures release is just the latest in a long string of successful collaborations with producer Will Packer, who also produced Girls TripŽ and the Ride AlongŽ “lms. We have a great partner in Will Packer and Breaking In is another example of his very talented approach and our mutual success,Ž Orr said. Also bene“ting from the Mothers Day timing was Overboard,Ž which earned $10.1 million to take fourth place, down only 31 percent from its debut last weekend. And rounding out the top “ve was A Quiet PlaceŽ with $6.4 million. The John Krasinskidirected thriller has now earned $169.6 million domestically. This is a typical Mothers Day weekend with a big blockbuster in the mix and some counter programming thrown in for good measure as we await the arrival of Deadpool 2 next week,Ž said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian.

The cause of the Friday evening crash, involving a Tesla Model S and a “re department mechanic truck stopped at a red light, was under investigation, said police in South Jordan, a suburb of Salt Lake City. The crash, in which the Tesla driver was injured, comes as federal safety agencies investigate the performance of Teslas semi-autonomous driving system. The Teslas air bags were activated in the crash, South Jordan police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said Saturday. The Teslas driver suffered a broken right ankle, and the driver of the Uni“ed Fire Authority mechanic truck didnt require treatment, Winkler said. There was no indication the Teslas driver was under the in”uence of any substance, and information on what the driver may have told investigators about the circumstances of the crash likely wouldnt be available before Monday, Winkler said by telephone. There was light rain falling and roads were wet when the crash occurred, police said in a statement. Witnesses indicated the Tesla Model S did not brake prior to impact,Ž the statement said. Teslas Autopilot system uses cameras, radar and computers to keep speed, change lanes and automatically stop vehicles. The company, which is based in Palo Alto, California, and has a huge battery factory in the Reno, Nevada, area, tells drivers the system requires them to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel so they can take control to avoid accidents. Tesla has not yet received any data from the car and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, including whether Autopilot was engaged,Ž a Tesla spokesperson said in a statement Sunday. Police said they had been in contact with the National Transportation Safety Board about the crash. NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway said he didnt know whether the agency would get involved with the crash. The NTSB and the National Highway Traf“c Safety Administration are investigating at least two other crashes involving Tesla vehicles. In March, a Tesla Model X SUV crashed on a California highway, killing the driver, and investigators are looking into the performance of the semi-autonomous driving system in that crash.Police probe whether Autopilot feature was on in Tesla crash SOUTH JORDAN POLICE DEPARTMENT VIA APIn this Friday photo released by the South Jordan Police Department shows a trac collision involving a Tesla Model S sedan with a Fire Department mechanic truck stopped at a red light in South Jordan, Utah.

Quick release of gun data called trailblazing, troubling Colorado girl attacked by bear outside homeTRENTON, N.J. (AP) „ Gun control advocates are hailing New Jerseys release of near-real-time “rearms traf“cking data as a trailblazing use of federal information. But Second Amendment advocates and skeptical Republicans question whether the report amounts to a way around a federal limitation on the release of some data. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy unveiled the data for the “rst time on Tuesday as part of a campaign promise to strengthen New Jerseys already-tight gun laws. The report uses Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives guntrace data for the “rst quarter of 2018 and shows that 77 percent of guns used in crimes in New Jersey come from out of state. Second Amendment advocates question whether Murphy is circumventing a prohibition barring the ATF from giving certain gun data to anyone but law enforcement. GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) „ A 5-year-old Colorado girl is hospitalized with serious injuries after she was attacked by a bear outside her home. The attack happened early Sunday near Grand Junction. The girls mother told state wildlife of“cers that her daughter went outside around 2:30 a.m. to investigate noises she thought might be related to her dog. The mother said she then heard screaming and went out to “nd her daughter being dragged by a large black bear. She says the bear dropped the girl after she began screaming at the animal. Colorado Parks and Wildlife says of“cers are tracking the bear with the help of federal wildlife of“cers. Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Mike Porras said the girl suffered serious injuries and was taken to St. Marys Hospital. She was listed in fair condition in the afternoon but chief operating of“cer Bryan Johnson says her family didnt want to release any more information. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATION

Didnt hit much. Were sloppy in the field. And couldnt pitch worth a lick. The result was one of the most lopsided losses in franchise history, 17-1 to the Orioles. Blake Snell, who had been their best starter, had a bad outing, allowing three homers in a five-batter span while failing to get out of the fourth. Andrew Kittredge had a miserable outing in relief, facing seven batters and allowing them all to reach, and Austin Pruitt and Chaz Roe didnt do much better. Outfielder Johnny Field, pressed into duty in the eighth, was arguably their best pitcher of the day. Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, second baseman Joey Wendle and centerfielder Mallex Smith all had a hand in misplays or missed plays. And the offense was held to two hits through seven shutout innings by Dylan Bundy, and five overall. It also was the end of catcher Wilson Ramos hitting streak at 18 games, one shy of the team record, as he went 0-for-4/ Until the Rays scored in the eighth, they were headed to the worst shutout loss in franchise history, eclipsing a 14-0 blanking by the Blue Jays on July 1, 2004. The 16-run deficit matched the third largest in franchise history, though falling short of the 22-4 spanking by the Red Six on July 23, 2002.

Jaylen Brown scored 23 points and Al Horford had 20 for Boston, which ran off 17 points in a row in the first and never allowed the Cavaliers within single digits again.

Staked to a seven-shot lead, no one got closer than four shots of Simpson, even after a double bogey on the 18th hole when his only concern was finishing the hole at the TPC Sawgrass. He closed with a 1-over 73 for a four-shot victory, his biggest title since the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club. Tiger Woods made another big run that revved up the crowd and revived hopes that he was close to winning. So did Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker and Danny Lee.

Capitals beat Lightning to take 2-0 series leadBy FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA „ The Washington Capitals scored in the opening minute of the game and twice in the last 1:02 of the second period to pull away to a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night and a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference final. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Lars Eller each had a goal and two assists. Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson had a goal and an assist apiece. Devante Smith-Pelly and Brett Connolly also scored for the Caps, who took the first two games of the best-of-seven matchup on the road. Since 1974-75, teams that take a 2-0 lead in the conference final or semifinal have a series record of 39-2 (95.1 percent). Game 3 is Tuesday night in Washington.

SEE LIGHTNING, 2


Smith-Pellys one-timer finishing an odd-man rush made it 2-2 at 2:30 of the second period. The Caps took control when Eller scored with 1:02 remaining and Kuznetsov „ with assists from Ovechkin and Eller „ delivered on a power play less than a minute later. Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy was called for tripping Washingtons Andre Burakovsky with 10 seconds left in the period. Kuznetsov scored seven seconds later to make it 4-2, the second time in the series the Caps stunned the Lightning with a power-play goal in the closing seconds of a period. Ovechkin and Connolly finished the rout with third-period goals. Braden Holtby stopped 33 of 35 shots to improve to 10-3 this postseason. Ovechkin, playing in the conference final for the first time, also had a goal and an assist in Washingtons 4-2 victory in Game 1. Vasilevskiy was pulled from the opener after facing 25 shots in two periods, but the Lightning didnt pin the loss on him. Instead, they vowed to player harder in front of the young goaltender, who finished with 31 saves in Game 2. Tampa Bay benefited early from a couple of questionable penalties „ Wilson for goaltender interference and T.J. Oshie for high-sticking Victor Hedman, when the Tampa Bay defenseman actually was struck by the puck „ to score twice in just over three minutes on the powerplay for a 2-1 lead. Stamkos and Hedman assisted on Points goal at 7:08 of the first. Stamkos fourth goal in five games gave Tampa Bay its first lead of the series.

Cornerback Mark Myers attended startup NAIA Southeastern University in Lakeland, which didnt have a team when he arrived in 2013; offensive lineman Ruben Holcomb played at Division II University of Indianapolis. Both came to minicamp on tryout contracts, and now have a chance to continue the Bucs success under general manager Jason Licht in finding talent in undrafted rookies. To make room for the two, the Bucs released two players who were signed after the draft, in Georgia Tech defensive end Antonio Simmons and Arkansas safety Josh Liddell. The Bucs also are sticking with Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen as their fourth QB moving forward, and not signing tryout QB Riley Ferguson of Memphis. Licht has had success with small-school prospects, finding guard Ali Marpet at Div. III Hobart three years ago. The Bucs drafted guard Alex Cappa from Div. II Humboldt State last month as well. The team has 14 undrafted rookies on its 91-man roster „ those hope to follow the footsteps of current Bucs like TEs Cameron Brate, Alan Cross and Anthony Auclair, WR Adam Humphries, RB Peyton Barber, OLs Demar Dotson and Leonard Wester, DLs DaVonte Lambert and Channing Ward and CB Javien Elliott.

The Cavaliers missed their first 14 3-point attempts of the game and shot just 32 percent in the first half. By that time, Boston led 61-35 „ the biggest halftime playoff deficit in James career. I think were very alert to the fact that well get a heavyweight punch on Tuesday night,Ž Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Its another great challenge, another great opportunity to experience something for this team.Ž With injured stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving on the bench in street clothes, the Celtics continued their stunning run this season with what may have been the most surprising turn of events yet. A year after dropping the first two games at home against Cleveland in a five-game East final, the Celtics pounced on James, and the favored Cavaliers were never really in it. The last couple of playoffs, and our meeting at the end of year, they blew us out of the water,Ž Boston guard Marcus Smart said. Weve got a different team, just like they do, and a lot of younger guys. So for them to see that, and have that feeling like we did tonight, is huge.ŽTIP-INSCavaliers: Kyle Korvers 3-pointer with nine minutes left in the third period was their first after missing 14 in a row.

Bostons 36-18 lead at the end of one quarter was the secondlargest in a playoff game in franchise history.GET HYPEDThe Celtics took the floor to a hype video that began with the broadcast of Haywards injury in the first quarter of the first game, at Cleveland. A variety of commentators predicted the teams demise, including Hall of Famer Charles Barkley saying: Their seasons over.Ž As more players went down to injury „ including Irving, who came over from the Cavaliers last summer but was done for the season in March „ the prophesies grew even gloomier. But there the Celtics were, back in the Eastern Conference finals against the Cavaliers for the second year in a row „ with Hayward, Irving, Daniel Theis and Shane Larkin all injured and Stevens down to an eight-man rotation. It was more than they needed. Starting in place of Aron Baynes, Morris backed up his boast that he could cover James better than anyone except Kawhi Leonard. The Cavaliers star had seven of Clevelands nine turnovers after accruing eight in the entire four-game, second-round sweep of the Raptors. Our confidence level is very high,Ž said Morris, who recorded the first postseason double-double of his career. The younger guys to the older guys, we think we can compete and play with anybody.

Its the first time the No. 2 Warriors have been in a playoff series without home-court advantage since 2014 when they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 4-3 in the opening round. For a team that has matched the Chicago Bulls NBA record with 15 straight home playoff victories, the feeling is a bit unsettling. Its different,Ž coach Steve Kerr said. I think our guys, they are taking the challenge and theyre embracing it. They feel like, OK, we dont have home court for the first time, but we seem to be at our best when we are threatened. Thats been kind of the M.O. of this team. Were definitely threatened. Were on the road for Game 1, weve never felt that.Ž The Rockets, who earned the top seed for the first time in franchise history by winning 65 games in the regular season, are certainly happy to be opening at home, but arent sure if its that much of an advantage in this series. Its better to have it than not ... its important but theyve shown they can win away from home, we can win away from home,Ž coach Mike DAntoni said. This might be a series where you lose one or two and then win four in a row „ either side. Because theyre capable of it.Ž This will be the third playoff meeting between these two teams in the past four years, with the Warriors winning both previous meetings. They downed the Rockets 4-1 in 2015 in Houstons previous trip to the conference finals and ousted the team from the playoffs in the first round in 2016. The defending champion Warriors are looking to reach the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year. For the Rockets, a win in this series would put them in the Finals for the first since 1995 when they won the second of their back-to-back titles. DAntoni was asked if he thinks the Warriors have seen a team as talented and dangerous as the Rockets are this season. I hope not,Ž he said. We did win 65. Theyre the ones always winning and getting home-court advantage so hopefully we gained a little ground.Ž However, he knows that his team is the perceived underdog in this series despite nabbing the top seed because of what the Warriors have done over the past few years. These guys are champions for a reason and theyve shown on the big stage that they can perform at a very, very, very high level „ as good as anybody ever,Ž he said. And we havent shown that yet and thats the doubt in most peoples minds, until you show it they dont know ... so weve just got to beat them and show them we can do it.Ž NBA PLAYOFFSTop-seed Houston hosts Warriors to start Western Conference “ nals[AP PHOTO]Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul (3) shoots in front of Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) during the second half on Jan. 20 in Houston.

Simpsons approach to the 18th bounded across the green and into the water. He closed with a double bogey, but that only made the final margin closer than what it really was. Being in that position is a lot harder than I thought,Ž Simpson said. Its hard to stay motivated to continue to do what Ive been doing. I had a good morning, and I was able to get it done.Ž Justin Thomas left the TPC Sawgrass as the No. 1 player in the world. He closed with a 66 to tie for 11th, more than enough to end Dustin Johnsons 15-month reign at the top of the ranking. Thomas is the 21st player to reach No. 1 since the ranking began in 1986, and the seventh American. Im very proud to have gotten there, but it means more to me how long I can hold it,Ž Thomas said in a text message. Jimmy Walker closed with a bogey-free 67 and tied for second with Charl Schwartzel and Xander Schauffele, who also shot 67s. Walker, who struggled all of last year with Lyme disease, had his best finish since he won the 2016 PGA Championship. Woods made the cut on the number „ helped by Thomas and Jordan Spieth making bogey on the 18th hole Friday „ got back to the first page of the leaderboard with a 65 on Saturday and ran off six birdies through 12 holes in the final round. He was tied for second at one point, still four shots behind, but that was as close he got. Woods made a soft bogey on the 14th hole when he missed the green with a sand wedge, and was well short of the island green in making double bogey on No. 17. He shot 69 and tied for 11th. I hit the ball better today than I did yesterday, and I obviously didnt end up with the score I needed to,Ž Woods said. Our goal is to keep winning, to keep getting better,Ž Atkinson said. Alec Martinez, Anders Lee, Colin White and Neal Pionk had a goal apiece. Norway got its goals from Kristian Forsberg, Ken Andre Olimb and Mathis Olimb. Forward Patric Hornqvist, who joined the Swedish team after Pittsburgh Penguins elimination from the NHL playoffs, scored in his first game of the championship against Switzerland. John Klingberg, Mikael Backlund, Adam Larsson and Magnus Paajarvi also netted for Sweden. Markus Eisenschmid scored the winner for Germany against Finland two minutes into overtime. For us to get a win against a nation that plays such good hockey is pretty big,Ž Germany captain Dennis Seidenberg said. A day after a 5-1 victory over Canada, Eeli Tolvanen put Finland 1-0 up in the first period when the Germans were held to just two shots on goal. But they came back in the second period. Frederik Tiffels tied it at 1 and Bjorn Krupp scored for a 2-1 lead. Sebastian Aho scored the equalizer for Finland with 2:06 left in regulation, forcing overtime. We were little bit down in the second period,Ž Finland captain Mikael Granlund said. Their goalie played a great game.

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

The Spanish team has won the last two editions of the tournament which is currently played annually in December and features only seven teams. An expanded Club World Cup would be played every four years in June or July with 12 representatives from Europe. Madrid official Emilio Butragueno says we think for fans it would be an interesting competition.Ž A FIFA briefing document on the project said clubs would share prize money totaling 75 percent of at least $3 billion revenue from each Club World Cup edition which would be guaranteed by a consortium of investors. The 2017 edition in the United Arab Emirates earned $37 million revenue for FIFA, with Madrid the European representative alongside the other continental champions and the host nations league winner. SOCCERReal Madrid backs FIFAs plans for 24-team Club World Cup By TALES AZZONIAssociated PressBARCELONA, Spain „ Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are not done just yet. Hamilton put in a dominant performance at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday, winning with ease and showing Ferrari that Mercedes remains the team to beat in Formula One. Hamiltons strong run helped Mercedes reestablish order at the top of the field after seeing Ferrari dominate most of the early season. This is more like it,Ž Hamilton said on the team radio. Lets keep this up.Ž Valtteri Bottas secured a one-two for Mercedes at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, while Max Verstappen completed the podium despite finishing the race with a broken front wing on his Red Bull. Ferraris Sebastian Vettel, who now trails Vettel by 17 points in the drivers standings, was only fourth after a change in strategy didnt pay off. It was the first onetwo of the season for Mercedes, which had struggled to keep pace with the Ferraris. Today, the car and myself, I felt that synergy which I hadnt been feeling for the whole year,Ž Hamilton said. Its a good feeling.Ž Hamilton was never challenged on the way to his 41st win from pole position, surpassing a record he shared with seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. It was Hamiltons 64th career win, leaving him 27 behind Schumachers record of 91 victories. I remember like it was yesterday sitting at home playing this computer game as Michael,Ž Hamilton said. Its just very surreal to think that every now and then I keep coming up against Michael in terms of records. He has some serious records. Its hard to beat all of these records that he has.Ž Hamilton also became the first F1 driver to finish in the points in 30 consecutive races. This weekend we got ourselves on the right path,Ž Hamilton said. I would like to hope it could be part of the turning point.Ž AUTO RACING FORMULA ONEMercedes restores order at top w ith Hamiltons win in Spain[AP PHOTO]Players of Germany celebrate after scoring their sides first goal during the Ice Hockey World Championships group B match between Germany and Finland at the Jyske Bank Boxen arena in

the three homers Snell gave up in the second were all solo blasts. And even in the third when a throwing error by third baseman Matt Duffy allowed another run in to make it 4-0. But it became more obvious that Snell wasnt going to be long for the day, and a one-out walk in the fourth on his 73rd pitch was the end. That led the Rays to bring in Andrew Kittredge, and that made things a lot worse. Kittredge faced seven Orioles batters and all seven reached, six on hits who all scored. Kittredge had been struggling much of the season in a spot starter/ long relief role, allowing runs in eight of his 13 appearances, and Sunday was his worst outing, hiking his ERA from 6.48 to 9.72. Of the 82 batters he has faced, 33 have reached base. Kittredge got off to a bad start, allowing a single to Adam Jones and an MRI double to Manny Machado. (Thats not so bad, everyone, or at least among Rays pitchers, gets torched by him.) Then Kittredge had some bad luck, a hard grounder that somehow got by shifted-in shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria for a two-run single, a grounder 2B Joey Wendle couldnt quite grab for a single, a squibber by the mound that scored another run. And then Kittredge made his biggest mistake, a first-pitch fastball that former Rays prospect Joey Rickard crushed for a three-run homer, and his second of the day to mark his callup from Triple-A. The Rays left after the game for Kansas City, where they open a threegame series with the Royals on Monday.

By DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressKANSAS CITY, Kan. „ Kevin Harvick had just taken the checkered flag for the fifth time this season, wheeled his car into victory lane and bathed in another confetti shower when he lamented what could have been. Come again? Still wasnt really happy with it,Ž Harvick said of his No. 4 for Stewart-Haas Racing, which he set a record in Saturday night at Kansas Speedway by becoming the fastest to five victories. I think,Ž Harvick said, we can make it better when we come back.Ž That shouldnt make the rest of the Monster Energy Cup Series feel very good about things. Harvick has won backto-back races after a three-race win streak earlier this season, and heads into next weeks All-Star race at Charlotte as the one guy head and shoulders above everyone else. But his response to his victory at Kansas, where he overcame trouble getting through inspections and a car that was off much of the night, speaks to a couple of very crucial facts. First, it shows how demanding Harvick is of his team, and how nobody in the garage is willing to settle for greatness „ not when there is perfection to chase. Pit stops could be cleaner, the car could handle the least little bit better, and the margin of victory could be even more comfortable. Theyre hitting on all cylinders,Ž marveled reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr., who was in a similar spot last season, when he reached victory lane eight times. Theyve got a great balanced race car and theyre doing all the right things, and were just a step behind that.Ž So is everybody else. The second thing Harvicks response to his victory demonstrates is that, well, he hasnt changed a whole lot over the years. Harvick earned the nickname Happy HarvickŽ as a joke, a play off the fact he was prone to emotional outbursts. And while he may have mellowed over the years, that streak is still in there, capable of rearing its head at the most unsuspecting of moments. Given the way the season has gone, though, Happy Harvick probably ought to be simply happy. He began his winning streak at Atlanta, continued it at Las Vegas and made it three straight with a triumph in Phoenix. An early wreck in California ended the streak, but he finished in the top 10 in each of the next five races, including a second-place run at Texas and a pole at Talladega. Harvick returned to his winning ways at Dover, when he started second and led 201 of the 400 laps en route to a dominant victory. And the hot streak continued at Kansas, where he had to race out of the garage for qualifying because of problems at inspection and still landed on the pole. He was clearly the fastest car on the track early on, then struggled to keep pace with Kyle Larson and Ryan Blaney through the middle stretches. But a series of late wrecks, including a tangle between Larson and Blaney that knocked the latter from the race, reset the field for a final sprint. With four fresh tires, Harvick roared from sixth on the restart with 10 laps to go, chased down Truex at the startfinish line of the final lap and cruised to his record-setting win. One that left everybody else feeling just a bit helpless. There isnt a real bright shiny tool you can use and say, There it is!Ž said Joey Logano, who finished third. Its just a bunch of little things. Theyre doing everything right. Theyve got a ton of speed, theyre qualifying first and theyre winning a bunch of races.Ž Indeed, the entire Stewart-Haas stable has had a ton of speed this season. Clint Bowyer ended his long victory drought at Martinsville, and teammate Aric Almirola was in the top 10 on Saturday night. I think as an organization all our cars are running better, which is exciting to me and everybody back at the shop,Ž said Greg Zipadelli, the teams vice president of competition. Its crazy to see what these guys have done this year. Its just really cool. You have to keep riding it.Ž Harvick said the same thing: When youre on a hot streak, you have to ride it as long as possible. Maybe thats why he bemoaned what little bit of speed was left on the track Saturday night, and why he is pushing his team so hard despite so much success. He knows that everything can spin the other way in a hurry, and that its time for him to make the most of his chance out front. This is something you may never do again in your career,Ž crew chief Rodney Childers said, where you have fast cars and guys who give you everything they can, and a driver who gives you everything he can. You have to fight each week. If its eight races you win, if its 10 races or 12 races you win, that is what your goal should be, no matter what race tea m you are. You got to keep going.Ž NASCARKevin Harvick chasing perfectio n after earning “ fth win in 12 races [AP PHOTO]Kevin Harvick is covered in confetti as he celebrates winning the NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., on Saturday. By MIKE CRANSTONAssociated PressPHILADELPHIA „ New York Mets righthander Jacob deGrom lasted only one inning in his return from the disabled list despite not allowing a hit or a run. DeGrom needed 45 pitches to get through the first, which included 20 foul balls by Philadelphia. The pitches were his most ever in an inning. New York said he was removed from Sundays start as a precaution because of the length of the inning and the 59-minute rain delay that preceded it. DeGrom entered with 11 walks in 43 ‡ innings walked his first three batters; the third was a nine-pitch plate appearance by Odubel Herrera, who extended his on-base streak to 41 games. DeGrom, who missed a start with a hyperextended right elbow, struck out Rhys Hoskins, got Carlos Santana to ground back to the mound and fanned Maikel Franco to end a 10-pitch at-bat. That extended deGroms scoreless streak to 19 ‡ innings, the longest active streak in the majors. The first inning lasted 39 minutes and produced no runs. Philadelphias Aaron Nola worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam. MLBMets deGrom pulled after 45 pitches in scoreless “ rst inningAssociated PressDETROIT „ Robinson Cano left Seattles game at Detroit in the third inning Sunday with a broken right hand after being hit by a pitch. Cano was struck by a pitch from left-hander Blaine Hardy, then went to the dugout while being replaced by a pinch runner. The 35-year-old Cano is hitting .287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season. He hit a three-run homer in Seattles win Saturday night. The Mariners came into Sundays game with a 22-16 record, and Cano is one of the teams biggest stars. He hit 39 home runs in 2016, although that number dipped to 23 a season ago. In the fifth season of a $240 million, 10-year contract, Cano has played in at least 150 games in each of the last 11 seasons.
