NEWS WIRECongratulations graduatesClass of 2018 fondly remembers old times AVON PARK „ Avon Park High School graduates have learned a few things over the years, according to Bryce Evan Langston, class president. He said Friday night that, as elementary school students, they didnt know what to do, other than have fun with their friends. That included Kaelyn Rif”e riding on the back of Kelli Sullivans scooter-chair during recess at Avon Elementary School. Dalton Whitman and Destanie Carpenter started a secret handshake that they added a move to every year,Ž Langston remembered. Things were still simple and fun back then, Langston said, but in middle school it got more awkward. It seemed as if we knew what we were supposed to be doing, but we didnt know what we were doing,Ž Langston said. He fondly remembered how Lane Franza didnt know what he was doing when he balled up two ketchup packets inside a sandwich wrapper and slammed his “st on them to see what would happen. Im pretty sure that ketchup stain is still on the cafeteria wall,Ž Langston said.

The Highlands NewsSun Centers bleachers were “lled with proud parents and family members as about 350 seniors took the walk to accept their diploma and become graduates. It was a memorable year, Principal Kim Ervin said, with Hurricane Irma at the start of the school year, prompting many students into action to help those in need in the storms aftermath. Ervin noted that she and the Class of 2018 began their journey together at Sebring High School in the fall of 2014. While being new at the school, she wasnt very helpful in directing students to the right classroom on the “rst day, Ervin said, The important thing is we “gured out high school together and you all have certainly come a long way. Today is about celebrating all that you have done, all of your victories and accomplishments,Ž she said. Its a day to Sebring High SchoolBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERAbout 350 school seniors graduate LAKE PLACID „ Joseph Edward Ables, accused of murder in the shooting of Highlands County deputy sheriff William J.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to YOUR VIEW Citizenship should not be given lightlyWhen I was in the second grade, Sister Palladia said, Jerry, you are a very good reader but you do not comprehend (grasp mentally; understand well), and should spend additional time working on that.Ž Well, apparently I was not alone as indicated by a recent readers comments in the Highland News-Sun op-ed (Immigrants have assimilated) when he stated that I bashed immigrants, although these are his thoughts and not facts. He did not say exactly what I penned that bashed them. He then went on to comment that immigrants take the jobs that unemployed Americans wont, so Im thinking that perhaps welfare and unemployment regulations should be addressed instead of just allowing more illegal immigrants into our country to pick the produce, fruit and repair the roofs after hurricanes, but another option could increase the number of H-2A visas, which allows a foreign national entry into the U.S. for temporary or seasonal agricultural work as needed. For your information, DACA immigrants are still illegal even though they were brought here by their parents, and yet that phenomenal (all rise please) President Donald J. Trump was going to help them towards achieving citizenship, but then withdrew his help saying, They had a great chance. The Democrats blew itŽ after failing to pass funding for that big beautiful wall along the southern border! Perhaps the author should re-read my article as it quoted Thomas Jefferson who was convinced that citizenship was a privilege that should be earned, not given lightly. It was necessary in the late 1800s/early 1900s to stock the country with many low skilled legal immigrants to satisfy the low paying workforce demands, but we no longer need the tired, the poor and huddled masses to breathe free as Emma Lazarus claimed.Jerry Wright Avon Park Russian collusion delusion If these players at the top of the FBI had put as much effort on some of those cowardly, psycho shooters as they did Russia collusion delusion and Stormy (man, I loved that song by the Classics IV), maybe they could have been prevented. Well, they were warned about the Parkland shooting, which could not be any more direct than that, and the FBI was hooked up with the Pulse Nightclub shooters father. He was an informant for them. Its hard to stay ahead of the news. Since I wrote this last week, I heard its Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who was apparently the one that signed off on the Uranium One deal between Hillary, her friends and Russia. Apparently, the U.S. lacks uranium and Im sure there is a logical explanation why they sold 20 percent of our supply and mining rights, of course, to Russia. Somebody trace that money trail! Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, in his position, now thinks he has authority over everyone including the president and refuses to answer to anyone. Mueller does all of Rosensteins dirty work. Comey has done his share of dirty work and has lost his mind. Meanwhile, AG Jeff Sessions has been cowering in the corner ever since Rosenstein stepped in. Members of Congress have been trying to get documents from the DOJ and FBI for over a year. When they do get a fraction of these documents, a huge percentage (75 percent) is redacted so its an ongoing battle. The best thing that can happen to this country is for us to get rid of these dirty players and honest ones put in their place that can run this country the way we deserve it to be run.Robert Gilbert SebringOUR POSITION: Floridas pedestrian-safety “gures are awful. Let that be a warning. A. The average weight of a car is 4,079 pounds B. The average weight of an American man is 191. C. A female, 166. Put a moving A in a collision course with a B or C „ or both B and C together, for that matter „ and it adds up to tragedy. No contest. As recent Page 1 stories in the Sun noted, Florida leads the nation in pedestrian-automobile accidents. Of the worst 12 metro areas in the country, Florida has nine that are ranked the least safest places to walk.Ž Cape CoralFort Myers is the worst, by a long shot, with a danger indexŽ of 283. North Port-SarasotaBradenton ranks 10th with a 149 score. In addition, Florida has had 228 pedestrian fatalities as of May 9, and 48 bicycle fatalities. Heed the warning numbers. This is a big state with a large population, and an older population whose drivers may be less nimble (or, perhaps, more careful) than the national norm. The weather is good year-round, so people are outside walking and biking more than they may be in northern states. And, or course, vehicular traf“c is heavy, especially in the winter tourist/snowbird season. Something is way off, though. Which means, if nothing else, that pedestrians, cyclists and motorists must be more aware of one another and pay attention to the rules of the road. Infrastructure is critical, and governments road projects must now include bike lanes and sidewalks. But older roads often lack sidewalks and wide shoulders, and sidewalks are expensive to build. Sarasota County now imposes developer mobilityŽ fees, rather than road fees, which can be used to fund sidewalks and bike lanes in urban areas where road-widening isnt feasible. Sarasota also has the non-motorized 12.5-mile Legacy Trail, which runs from Venice to the Palmer Ranch area. County voters will decide in November whether to fund an extension of the trail to downtown Sarasota and upgrade an off-road trail in North Port. Its a good start. The city of Venice also has a 10-mile-long biking-hiking trail on both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway. Venice has also undertaken a strong effort in recent years to mark bike lanes on the island, increasingly setting itself aside as a Bicycle-Friendly Community. Punta Gorda has traveled in the bike-friendly direction, too, with a bike-loaner program and other initiatives. Unfortunately, as a story by Sun staffer Rusty Pray noted, an effort by Team Punta Gorda and city government to elevate the city to Bicycle-Friendly Community status suffered from what one city of“cial termed bike-lash,Ž push-back from residents either worried about cost or unaware of the safety and recreational bene“ts. Misguided, we believe. One thing all agree on is the need for education and individual awareness of the rules of the road. Like these: Motorists must eliminate distractions. Its easy to drift into the shoulder/bike lane. Most important: Dont text while driving! Pedestrians should walk with the ”ow of traf“c, cyclists against. Bicycles have a right to a portion of the roadway. Cyclists should stay right as much as practicable, but cars are legally required to give cyclists three feet of clearance. Cyclists must follow rules of the road, including stop signs. The law forbids earplugs for cyclists and motorists. Cyclists may use sidewalks, but pedestrians have the right of way. The situation should improve as Floridas road network improves. Still, follow the rules and proceed as safely as possible. Be alert. Look at our shared paths through the other guys eyes. Walk-cycle-drive accordingly. Sun NewspapersSafety first when sharing our roadwaysThe Presidents speech was powerful and moving. I realize many of our readers might not be familiar with much of the text so Ive excerpted parts of his speech here for your reading pleasure. I want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation. The con“dence that we have always had as a people is not simply some romantic dream or a proverb in a dusty book that we read just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea which founded our nation and has guided our development as a people. Con“dence in the future has supported everything else -public institutions and private enterprise, our own families, and the very Constitution of the United States. For the “rst time in the history of our country a majority of our people believe that the next “ve years will be worse than the past “ve years. Twothirds of our people do not even vote. The productivity of American workers is actually dropping, and the willingness of Americans to save for the future has fallen below that of all other people in the Western world. As you know, there is a growing disrespect for government and for churches and for schools, the news media, and other institutions. This is not a message of happiness or reassurance, but it is the truth and it is a warning. Looking for a way out of this crisis, our people have turned to the Federal Government and found it isolated from the mainstream of our nations life. Washington, D.C., has become an island. The gap between our citizens and our government has never been so wide. The people are looking for honest answers, not easy answers; clear leadership, not false claims and evasiveness and politics as usual. What you see too often in Washington and elsewhere around the country is a system of government that seems incapable of action. You see a Congress twisted and pulled in every direction by hundreds of well-“nanced and powerful special interests. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another. You often see a balanced and a fair approach that demands sacri“ce, a little sacri“ce from everyone, abandoned like an orphan without support and without friends. We can spend until we empty our treasuries, and we may summon all the wonders of science. But we can succeed only if we tap our greatest resources -Americas people, Americas values, and Americas con“dence.Ž Regardless of your politics, this speech is a powerful call to action and a return to what made America great. Thank you, Mr. President. Sounds a lot like the current President, except it was President Jimmy Carter who made these remarks in 1979. Two different outsider Presidents brought in to drain the swamp, both hindered by the powerful status quo. The alligators dont want their swamp drained. Will this President be more successful in breaking through? Share your thoughts.

Sunday, May 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 OBITUARIESJohn Marion AdairJohn Marion Adair was born Sept. 22, 1928, and passed away on May 17, 2018 at the age of 89. His parents were James Wade Adair and Ethel Bocock Adair. He was the baby of 10 children and grew up on a farm in Indiana after his family migrated to Indiana when John was a young boy. John joined the Army in 1945. Upon completing basic training, he was stationed at Ft. Richardson Army Base in Anchorage, Alaska. He was placed in the motor pool and drove the Lieutenant Colonel around in a 1941 Packard, an assignment he truly enjoyed. Once he was discharged from the Army he returned home to Lebanon, Indiana. Johns “rst wife was Edna Farris of Lebanon, Indiana and they had two girls. They were divorced. He later married Vernita Moore on April 16, 1954 and they had two sons. John spent his adult years as an auto mechanic. His children and grandchildren know him best for his woodworking, brain teasers and gadget puzzles, his joking sense of humor, his funny car horn, his homemade ice cream and his love for cats. John is preceded in death by his parents, James W. and Roberta Ethel (Bocock) Adair; his wife, Vernita; and his daughter, Kathy Jean Adair Dixon Dufour and nine siblings. He is survived by his daughter Linda Adair Durr (Larry); his sons Gregory Alan (Elizabeth) and Gary Lee (Cathy) Adair; his grandchildren Jennifer Jo Durr Goodrich (Stephen), Julie An Dixon Cook (Andrew Nappi), David Marc Dixon, Dominic Polveri Dufour, Olivia Katharine Dufour, Gregory Alan Adair, Jr. (Melissa), Angela Nicole Adair Porter (Ross), Joshua Paul McGee (Adriana), Megan Lyndall McGee Grimes (Rusty), Caleb Hunt McGee (Jessica), Carrie Ann Adair Brogden (Troy), Ryan John Thomas Adair, John RustyŽ McDaniel (Heather); and 20 great grandchildren. John was a man of faith, integrity and had a passion for his family. He took great pride in the character and accomplishments of his children, their spouses and of course his grandchildren. Above and beyond anything John accomplished during his lifeƒƒand there were extraordinary personal accomplishments relating to military service, being quite possibly the best automobile mechanic who ever turned a wrench, raising a family in a comfortable and nurturing lifestyle, being a loving and faithful husband, being a great friend to so many, being an animal lover, to having a wicked sense of humor to living his life as a true Christian and being a mentor to us all... above all of that, John or Daddy or Papaw was an inspirational teacher of humanity, humility and life skills to his family. He didnt preach, he didnt scold, and he didnt demand...John simply lead and taught by example. All of his children and grandchildren have an advantage when sorting out life challenges...Are you having trouble determining right from wrong, having trouble managing money, having trouble reconciling your faith with everyday issues and temptations, well just think about the example and teaching that John provided us all and the correct and proper answer will always materialize. While living in Lebanon, he was a member of the Otterbein United Methodist Church. Upon moving to Florida he joined the First United Methodist Church of Sebring. Family services were held on Saturday. In lieu of ”owers, donations may be made in Johns name to the Palms of Sebring or to Compassionate Care Hospice of Sebring. morrisfuneralchapel. com.Fred M.

A Clearwater police news release says 52-yearold Dean Baaj was arrested Thursday and charged with child neglect. Detectives say Baaj arrived at the Pinellas County Courthouse around 8:45 a.m. Of“cials say he locked the girl in the car with the windows up and the sunroof open. A passerby heard the child calling for help about two hours later and alerted a nearby deputy. Clearwater police responded, and medics determined the child was “ne.

The attack at Santa Fe High School is the deadliest school shooting since a former student was arrested in the killing of 17 people at Floridas Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentines Day, a massacre that mobilized a nationwide movement for gun reform. It also came on the last day of school for Stoneman Douglas seniors, who “nish classes earlier than other grades. My heart is so heavy for the students of Santa Fe High School. Its an all too familiar feeling no one should have to experience. I am so sorry this epidemic touched your town „ Parkland will stand with you now and forever,Ž Parkland student Jaclyn Corin said in a tweet. She also directed her frustration at President Donald Trump, writing Our children are being MURDERED and youre treating this like a game. This is the 22nd school shooting just this year. DO SOMETHING.Ž Classmate David Hogg, who helped start the #NeverAgain movement with Corin, predicted that politicians would descend on the Texas campus acting like they care to boost their approval ratings. Cameron Kasky echoed their sentiments on Twitter: Prepare to watch the NRA boast about getting higher donations. Prepare to see students rise up and be called civil terrorists and crisis actors. Prepare for the right-wing media to attack the survivors.Ž A handful of Twitter users did began to question the facts of the Texas shooting Friday, at least one accusing a Santa Fe student of being a #CrisisActor after she told a local television station shed always felt like a shooting would eventually happen at her school. Most of the victims of Fridays shooting at a Houston-area high school were students, authorities said. Santa Fe High, you didnt deserve this. You deserve peace all your lives, not just after a tombstone saying that is put over you. You deserve more than Thoughts and Prayers, and after supporting us by walking out we will be there to support you by raising up your voices,Ž tweeted Emma Gonzalez, one of the movements leading voices. Monday marked three months since a former student with an AR-15 was charged in the attack in Parkland, Florida. The movement that resulted led to gun reform legislation being passed in Florida, and a continuing national debate over guns and school safety. Theyre part of this now,Ž Stoneman Douglas student Charlie Shebes said. I want to talk to them,Ž he added. Id like to say it gets better, but it actually gets a lot worse before it gets better.Ž March For Our Lives released a statement urging Americans not to simply let this latest shooting pass without action. The group said some Parkland students had already reached out to the Texas survivors. This is not the price of our freedom. This is the most fatal shooting since the one at our school and tragedies like this will continue to happen unless action is taken,Ž the statement said.

A10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 his neighbors cat. Court records also indicate that Ables was on probation for a felony charge and was not allowed to have a “rearm. Dispatch records and offense reports connected with his address, 234 Baltimore Way in Placid Lakes of Lake Placid, show he called the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce frequently to report crime over a 12-year span, with many calls being unfounded. On one occasion, however, neighbors called on his behalf, when they saw his house being burglarized. Deputies investigated and made an arrest in that case. Dispatch records obtained by the Highlands News-Sun list Ables earliest call at 4:41 p.m. Jan. 26, 2006, about criminal mischief: Someone was driving through his property, causing damage. He made a similar complaint at 5:54 p.m. July 3, 2006, of neighbors spinning their wheels in his driveway. Then, on Aug. 28, 2006, Ables made speci“c complaints against two men against whom he had trespass warnings, reports said. An incident report stated that his neighbors, ages 45 and 56, came onto his property, and he had trespass warnings against both of them. A deputy made copies of the trespass warnings. Even though Ables had a delivery receipt, Highlands County Central Dispatch did not have computer records of that paperwork on “le at the time. The deputy checked where a car had backed into his property but found it had only traveled on the county right of way. Ables did not know about the right of way between his property and the pavement. The case was ruled unfounded. Ables reportedly made another trespass call on the neighbor on Sept. 6, 2006, about a car driving through his property. He reportedly called in suspicious incidents on Sept. 21, 2006, and May 22, 2007. The second incident involved an Hispanic couple he saw entering 239 Baltimore Way. Both Ables and another resident, who was trying to buy the house, reported the incident and said no one should be at the house. They had both taken it upon themselves to change the locks, reports said, to protect the house, pending a sale. However, it turned out that the couple had been given a key to look at the house for possible rental. The got the key from a property manager who works for the person who received the house from a deceased relative and was still working out the legal deed process. That case was also ruled as unfounded. Ables also made three calls on the night of July 3 and early morning July 4, 2007, about neighbors shooting off “reworks and mortars. He then made a call on Nov. 25, 2007, about a suspicious vehicle „ a black Ford Mustang „ laying rubberŽ in his driveway. A few months later, on March 8, 2008, he called about tire marks on his driveway and suspicions that a particular neighbor was breaking into his garage. Dispatch records show a “ve-year gap. He made another call on March 27, 2013, about a suspicious incident: A possible scam. It was on Oct. 30, 2013, that his neighbors reported a burglary at Ables home. Deputies arrived to “nd the house ransacked, with several items thrown about. One item, an Airsoft ri”e, was on the victims bed and appeared to have a blood smear on it. Deputies took a swab from it and sent it to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Laboratory for analysis. After contacting Ables, who was out of town at the time, deputies learned items worth $10,600 were stolen, including a Suzuki Burgman 650 motorcycle, eight Airsoft “rearms, an arrowhead collection, a 32-inch television and $500 cash. Deputies found the motorcycle in brush off Foxhunt Avenue in Highway Park. Then, on March 31, 2014, Lake Placid Police detective Stuart Troutman informed the Sheriffs Of“ce that he received an identi“cation on a blood swab in a police department case as Deondre Mijahn Chisolm. Reports said Troutman cross-referenced his results with the blood sample taken from Ables ri”e and identi“ed Chisolm as a suspect in the Sheriffs Of“ce case. Chisolm was arrested and charged. In 2014, Ables made another call, alleging a neighbor had committed battery on him. Ables told deputies that a female neighbor had asked him to store some items for her. While he was moving them in a wheelbarrow to his house, a man approached Ables and started yelling at him, reports said, accusing him of stealing from the woman. The man also allegedly threatened to beat up Ables. Allegedly, the man grabbed Ables wrists and left a mark or cut on one of them. Ables reportedly was able to pull away and left the wheelbarrow while he ran inside to call 911. When asked, the man said he did not grab Ables or threaten him. However, Sheriffs Of“ce arrest reports indicate that deputies swore out an arrest warrant for the man. Highlands County Clerk of the Courts records do not indicate whether the case was adjudicated.ABLESFROM PAGE 1 “ngertips. The strangest thing we found was a wrench inside a tire.Ž The shop is averaging about 10 ”ats per day, double what it used to be.

The Florida Department of Health issued the alert Friday for the Kendall area, which is a suburb southwest of Miami. An agency news release says the raccoon tested positive Tuesday. State health of“cials have been working with Miami-Dade Animal Services and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to identify any individuals who might have been exposed to the animal. The rabies alert will last for 60 days. An animal with rabies could infect other wild or domestic animals that have not been vaccinated against rabies. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and is fatal to warm-blooded animals, including humans. BUNNELL (AP) „ A former Florida elections of“cial is getting a 30-day jail sentence plus 18 months of probation.

Weeks was the Flagler County supervisor of elections. Weeks is appealing her convictions and was allowed to remain out of jail after posting a $25,000 bond. She did not say anything before the judge handed down the sentence. A jury took less than two-and-a-half hours in April to convict Weeks. She was “rst arrested back in 2015.

The two major lunar periods will be occurring during the sunrise and sunset periods; over the next four days, so the two most popular “shing periods of the day will be most productive. The Florida rainy season weather pattern typically does not produce signi“cant atmospheric pressure changes. Therefore “sh will be in”uenced mostly by the moon changing the levels of the suns energy entering the atmosphere. During the moons 28-day orbit of earth, there are four separate three-day periods in which lunar interaction within the suns energy path to the earth, produces greater-than-average daily solar energy ”uctuation periods. These solar-lunar monthly periods produce greater “sh feeding activity during the sunrise and sunset, or, noon and midnight periods during those four three-day periods. For the next three to four days the moon will cause a spike in solar energy levels during the sunrise and sunset periods. And atmospheric pressure-changes will be weak at best if theres actually any change at all. Typically if there is a change in pressure upward it will occur just after sunrise and or two hours or so before solar noon, which today is at 1:22 p.m. And a modest pressure decline will occur during the middle afternoon hours„weak-modest changes are 0.03-.05 In Hg. This time of year moving water areas come into play along with sustained wind direction patterns. During the typical rainy season there are “ve-day periods which produce moderate-to-weak southeasterly winds which results in daily thunderstorms and rainfall throughout various areas of the state. So “shing rivers and streams, ”ood control structure areas and west and north lake shorelines and east and south island shorelines, produces typically, better results.

The Bolts converted it into a touchdown a few plays later to take a 7-0 lead. Ridge added to their lead in late in the first quarter with another touchdown off a 1-yard quarterback sneak as the Blue Streaks found themselves trailing 14-0 after the first quarter. It was off a bad snap early in the second quarter in which the momentum started to turn in the Blue Streaks favor. Quarterback DJ Williams cleanly handled a low snap off the ground and turned it into a 46-yard touchdown run through the middle of Ridges defense to put Sebring on the board early in the second quarter to make the score 14-7. Late in the first half, Williams got the passing game going with a couple of 20plus yard completions to Jacob Pasley that got the Blue Streaks inside the 10 with time running down in the first half. Williams completed the drive with a corner pass to the right side to Norris Taylor for a 9yard touchdown pass to tie the game at the half at 14. Sebring dominated the third quarter as they scored three touchdowns and stopped the Bolts twice inside the 10 to prevent them from scoring. That is good,Ž said Scott. It shows what we can do defensively, we have some holes and we to figure out how we can fill those holes and keep it moving.Ž Sebring opened up the third quarter with a 75-yard drive in which Williams kept alive twice converting fourth downs into first. Williams capped off the drive with a quick sideline pass to Taylor to the left, who then proceeded to zig-zag through the Ridge defense for 35 yards to the right side of the field and eventually the end zone to give Sebring their first lead of the game 21-14.Blue Streaks best BoltsBY JIM TAYLORCORRESPONDENTSebring overcomes slow start for spring football victory JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTSebring quarterback DJ Williams (3) powers through the Ridge defense for a 20-yard gain.

Wheeler grabs lead at Toyota Bassmaster Texas FestJacob Wheeler “shed a hodge-podge of lures, techniques and depthsŽ Friday to earn 18 pounds, 3 ounces of largemouth bass and take command of the 2018 Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest bene“ting Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on Lake Travis. The way Ive been catching my bass this week has been through a long list of tactics, lures and locations,Ž he said. Ive been “shing hodge-podge. Thats the best way I can explain it. But thats really how I like to “sh, and its been working well for me.Ž This isnt the “rst time the second-year Bassmaster pro has been in the lead. Wheeler has two Elite Series victories to his credit, but Texas Fest carries more weight than a regular-season Elite Series tournament. His two-day total weight of 35-7 moves him closer to the $100,000 “rst-place payday and a coveted berth into the 2019 Bassmaster Classic presented by DICKS Sporting Goods. The 27-year-old pro admitted to having 18 rods on the deck of his boat during Fridays second round of competition, but he claimed to have learned more about his pattern as the day went on. I dialed in on them a little more today,Ž Wheeler said. Not enough to say Im con“dent in winning this tournament. Not just yet. I used most of the rods I had out, and I caught “sh from 6 inches of water to 40 feet and I hit a bunch of spots. It was a hodge-podge day.Ž Most pro anglers keep their cards close to the vest at this point in major tournaments, but he did say he his big “sh were coming from a couple speci“c structural elements. I still think its going to take 15 to 17 pounds a day to win on Lake Travis,Ž he said. Ive kept myself in position to potentially win even if I have a tough Saturday or Sunday. Im very happy with how my day went, and I hope I can stay consistent into tomorrow.Ž After leading on Thursdays opening round, Ray Hanselman Jr. of Del Rio, Texas, fell back to second place after producing only four bass that weighed 12-2, pushing his twoday total to 34-1. Today was de“nitely tougher,Ž Hanselman said. I didnt get any of the big bites I had hoped for, and only bringing in four “sh certainly hurt. I think I could have caught another keeper somewhere else, but I was focusing on big bass only.Ž In hindsight, Hanselman said he should have spent more time “shing docks for his limit bass. The dock thing was working for me, but I left it too soon. In looking back I should have downsized my lure while I was there,Ž he said. Cliff Pace of Petal, Mississippi, stayed consistent and held down third place for the second day in a row. Catching that 10-5 yesterday sure helped, but I was able to stay on quality “sh again today,Ž Pace said. This lake is receiving a lot of “shing pressure right now, but I think it will get better tomorrow with fewer “shermen on the lake.Ž If no one catches a bass heavier than Paces 10-plus-pounder in the “nal two rounds, hell win the big bass prize, a new Toyota Tundra pickup truck. The full “eld of 108 anglers was cut to the Top 50 pros for Saturdays semi-“nal round of competition. Rounding out the Top 5 are Jason Christie of Park Hill, Oklahoma, with 32-7 in fourth place and Drew Benton of Panama City with 30-12 in “fth place. Takeoff will begin at 8:15 a.m. each morning at Jones Brothers Park in Jonestown, Texas, and weigh-ins will be at the same location each afternoon beginning at 5 p.m. The Bassmaster Elite Series Outdoors Expo concludes today. The event will feature boat demo rides, an aquarium, free prizes and the latest “shing products on the market. The fan-favorite kids area, Bassmaster Get Hooked on Fishing presented by Toyota and Shakespeare, will also include cat“sh-casting ponds and a chance to meet the pros. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Adventures Area will welcome visitors of all ages to try out archery, learn ways to contribute to conservation and participate in other fun outdoor activities.SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN SEIGO SAITO/B.A.S.S.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comBottas fastest in Barcelona testTeams have 2-day test session ahead of Grand Prix of MonacoHes enjoyed a solid start to the season without managing a victory, and Valtteri Bottas demonstrated his pace once again by topping the time sheet for Mercedes as testing concluded in Barcelona on Wednesday. The Finn put in a huge 139 laps in his Silver Arrow with a quickest lap of 1:16.904 on supersofts, which was set in the morning session, putting him on top. Indeed, that pace was over six-tenths quicker than the P1 time Max Verstappen had set in the Red Bull on day one, but still behind teammate Lewis Hamiltons pole lap of 1:16.173 for last Sundays Spanish Grand Prix. It proved to be enough to keep Bottas 0.068 seconds ahead of Ferraris Antonio Giovinazzi on the hypersoft compound, with the Italian behind the wheel of the SF71H one day after opening testing for Sauber. The Prancing Horse were certainly keen to get as much data as possible at the Circuit de BarcelonaCatalunya, and ran the most laps of any team with a mammoth 148. The highly-rated Lando Norris did his glowing reputation no harm with a superb P3, the Briton leaving it late in the McLaren to set a 1:18.039. It was the third time the teenager has tested for the Woking out“t „ after run outs in Hungary and Abu Dhabi last season „ and one hell certainly remember. Haass Kevin Magnussen made up the top four by going almost two-tenths quicker than Romain Grosjeans time on the same hypersoft tires on Tuesday. The Dane, however, saw his session ended after 75 laps when his American team made him park his car up on track as a precaution „an incident that brought the red ”ag out. With rules stating that two of the four in-season test days must be given over to drivers with fewer than three Grand Prix starts, there were plenty of F1 hopefuls on show in Spain. One of them was Force Indias Nikita Mazepin, who “nished “fth, while F2 star Jack Aitken „ participating in his maiden test in a current car „ was one place behind in the Renault. Fresh from “nishing 10th last Sunday, Charles Leclerc racked up 139 laps for Sauber „ and his quickest put him in P7. Another driver familiar with this circuit, Robert Kubica, came eighth in the Williams less than a week after running in opening practice in Spain. Toro Rosso decided to use two drivers on Wednesday with Sean Gelael behind the wheel in the morning before handing over to Pierre Gasly, who came ninth despite running just 39 laps. Pirellis tire development program schedule, which took place alongside this test, saw McLaren and Force India each provide a car. Stoffel Vandoorne was representing the former, and set the P10 time, while for the latter it was Nicholas Lati“. British driver Jake Dennis also got his “rst taste of on-track F1 power, the Red Bull sim driver taking over duties from Verstappen and setting the 11th-quickest time. So with testing now over for the teams and drivers, theyll turn their attention to the next round of the championship in Monaco.SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN F1, Tests, 2018, Barcelona, Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Momtorsport F1, Barcelona, Test, Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Julie L.

The News Wire Sunday, May 20, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER CUBA: 3 SURVIVORS CRITICAL AFTER PLANE CRASHSee page 3. PAHOA, Hawaii „ Lava oozing out of cracks for two weeks in rural Hawaii neighborhoods took on new characteristics as fresher magma mixed with decades-old magma, sending a ”ow toward the ocean Saturday. Since a “rst “ssure opened up in a community on May 3, lava was mostly spattering up and collecting at the edges of the cracks in the ground. Two neighborhoods with nearly 2,000 people were forced to evacuate as lava claimed 40 structures. On Friday afternoon, the lava changed dramatically with one “ssure ramping up and sending a ”ow across a road, destroying four more homes and isolating residents, some of whom had to be air-lifted to safety. The change is attributed to new magma mixing with 1955-era magma in the ground, creating hotter and more ”uid ”ows, scientists said. Theres much more stuff coming out of the ground and its going to produce ”ows that move further away,Ž said Wendy Stovall, a U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist. By Saturday morning, two of 22 “ssures had merged, creating a wide ”ow advancing at rates of up to 300 yards per hour. Aerial footage from the USGS showed fast-moving lava advancing to the southeast. The ”ow was 1.5 miles from the ocean, scientists said. In the background, the footage showed lava fountaining 328 feet high at one of the “ssures. The fountains are created by vents closing, forcing magma to burst through a single outpoint, Stovall said. If lava threatens a main highway, more people will be told to prepare for voluntary evacuation. SANTA FE, Texas „ The suspect in the Texas school shooting began his attack by “ring a shotgun blast through an art classroom door, sending panicked students to the entryway to block him from getting inside, witnesses said. Dimitrios Pagourtzis “red again through the wooden part of the door and fatally hit a student in the chest. He then lingered for nearly 30 minutes in a warren of four rooms, killing seven more students and two teachers before exchanging gun“re with police and surrendering, of“cials said. Freshman Abel San Miguel saw his friend Chris Stone killed at the door. San Miguel got grazed in the stomach by another volley of shots. He and others survived by playing dead. We were on the ground, all piled up in random positions,Ž he said. Galveston County Judge Mark Henry, the countys chief administrator, said he did not think the attack was 30 minutes of constant shooting, and that assessment was consistent with other of“cials who said law enforcement contained the shooter quickly. But authorities did not release a detailed timeline to explain precisely how events unfolded. Junior Breanna Quintanilla was in art class when she heard the shots and someone say, If you all move, Im going to shoot you all.Ž The 17-year-old Pagourtzis walked in, pointed at one person and declared, Im going to kill you.Ž Then he “red. He then said that if the rest of us moved, he was going to shoot us,Ž Quintanilla said. When Quintanilla tried to run out a back door, she realized Pagourtzis was aiming at her. He “red in her direction. He missed me,Ž she said. But it went ahead and ricocheted and hit me in my right Hawaii lava flow ramps up as new magma mixes with oldGunman blasted through door, lingered for almost 30 minutesBy CALEB JONES and JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERASSOCIATED PRESSBy PAUL J. WEBER and JUAN A. LOZANOASSOCIATED PRESS GUNMAN | 4 LAVA | 4WINDSOR, England „ The son of British royalty and the daughter of middle-class Americans wed Saturday in a service that re”ected Prince Harrys royal heritage, Meghan Markles biracial roots and the pairs shared commitment to putting a more diverse, modern face on the monarchy. British reserve crisscrossed with American verve in a service that broke molds and created new ones. Choirboys and a gospel choir; the archbishop of Canterbury and the African-American leader of the Episcopal church; a horsedrawn carriage and ”owers hand-picked by the groom. The wedding was a global event, thanks to Harrys status as a senior British royal and Markles celebrity status after starring on the U.S. television series SuitsŽ for seven years. Yet it seemed somehow so personal „ and they both beamed like a couple who couldnt take their eyes off each other. In a rousing sermon that highlighted a bit of a culture gap between outgoing Americans and reserved Brits, the Most. Rev. Michael Curry of the U.S. stirred the congregation from its fairy-tale reverie, quoting Martin Luther King in in a sermon that had some reaching for hankies and others shifting in their chairs. Theres power in love,Ž Curry said, his voice rising. Love can help and heal when nothing else can. Theres power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.Ž He also quoted from the Song of Solomon in the Bible: Many waters cannot quench love, neither can ”oods drown it.Ž Joining the couple were a phalanx of celebrities, many of whom shared their wish to change the world. Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, Elton John, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, James Corden and David and Victoria Beckham all watched from rows of seats in the Gothic masterpiece that is St. Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle. The British weather was „ gasp! „ sunny and balmy, A royal wedding to rememberPrince Harry, Meghan wed in Windsor as millions watchBy DANICA KIRKA, JILL LAWLESS and GREGORY KATZASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Melania Trump returned to the White House in high spiritsŽ on Saturday following a weeklong hospitalization for kidney treatment, a lengthy stay that raised questions about whether the “rst ladys condition may have been more complicated than “rst revealed. President Donald Trump heralded her homecoming with a tweet that referred to her as MelanieŽ instead of Melania.Ž Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melanie is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!Ž Trump wrote before quickly superseding that tweet with another that spelled his wifes name correctly. Mrs. Trumps quiet return to the White House, her husband and their 12-year-old son, after “ve days at a nearby U.S. military hospital resolved a brewing mystery about when she would eventually be released. What remain are questions about the state of her health. Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, has declined to release additional details, citing Mrs. Trumps right to privacy. The First Lady returned home to the White House this morning,Ž Grisham said in an emailed statement. She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits. Our of“ce has received thousands of calls and emails wishing Mrs. Trump well, and we thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out.Ž First ladies are under no obligation to make their medical histories public. She had been at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington since Monday, when she had an embolization procedure to treat an unspeci“ed kidney condition the White House described as benign.

They also agreed on meaningful increasesŽ in U.S. exports of agriculture and energy products and greater efforts to increase trade in manufactured goods and services. The statement, however, provided no dollar amounts on how much China might boost its purchases of American products. The statement also was silent on whether the talks had made progress in easing the trade standoff between the worlds two biggest economies. Washington and Beijing have threatened to impose billions of dollars in punitive tariffs on each other. The statement said they did agree on the need for effective measuresŽ to reduce Americas trade de“cit, and to strengthen cooperation on protecting intellectual property. The statement said the United States would send a team to China to work out further details. One of the Trump administrations goals has been to get China to take steps that would lower Americas goods trade de“cit with China by at least $200 billion by the end of 2020. Outside analysts said it was highly unlikely that China would ever agree to a U.S. demand for a speci“c de“cit reduction target. Eswar Prasad, an economist and trade expert at Cornell University, said that Saturdays statement seemed to be an effort to de-escalate for the time being the growing tensions. The Trump administration seems eager to engineer at minimum a temporary peace with China to ensure a smooth runup to the Kim-Trump summit in June,Ž Prasad said, referring to the June 12 meeting between Trump and North Koreas leader. It is likely that this agreement, weak and vague though it is, will serve as grounds to at least delay the imposition of tariffsŽ that the United States and China have threatened to impose, Prasad said. There was a consensus on taking effective measures to substantially reduce the United States trade de“cit in goods with China,Ž the joint statement said. The two days of talks were led on the Chinese side by Vice Premier Liu He and on the American side by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The U.S. delegation included Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. Trump campaigned in 2016 on a pledge to get tough on China and other U.S. trading partners. He views the massive U.S. trade de“cit with China „ $337 billion last year, the biggest with any country „ as evidence that Beijing is engaged in abusive trading practices and has outmaneuvered previous U.S. administrations. Last August, Lighthizer began an investigation into Beijings strong-arm tactics to challenge U.S. technological dominance. These include outright cybertheft of U.S. companies trade secrets and Chinas demands that American corporations hand over technology in exchange for access to the Chinese markets. Last month, the administration proposed tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports to protest the forced technology transfers. Trump later ordered Lighthizer to seek up to an additional $100 billion in Chinese products to tax. China responded by targeting $50 billion in U.S. products, including soybeans „ a shot at Trump supporters in Americas heartland. The prospect of an escalating trade war has shaken “nancial markets and alarmed business leaders. In a separate controversy, the Commerce Department last month blocked Chinas ZTE Corp. from importing American components for seven years, accusing the telecommunications company of misleading U.S. regulators after it settled charges last year of violating sanctions against Iran and North Korea. The ban amounted to a death sentence for ZTE, which relies heavily on U.S. parts, and the company announced that it was halting operations. Chinese of“cials complained loudly about the ZTE sanctions when a high-level U.S. delegation, led by Mnuchin, visited Beijing this month. Trump waded into the fray last Sunday, tweeting that he was working with Chinese President Xi Jinping to put ZTE back in business, fast.Ž Media reports suggested that the U.S. was offering to swap a ZTE rescue for an end to proposed Chinese tariffs on U.S. farm products.US, China say Beijing commits to buying more US goodsBy MARTIN CRUTSINGER and PAUL WISEMANAP ECONOMICS WRITER 1 dead, 1 injured in cougar attack in Washington state Trump nominates businessman for Belgium ambassadorNORTH BEND, Wash.

NEW YORK (AP) „ A former Playboy centerfold involved in a custody battle apparently jumped with her 7-year-old son to their deaths from the 25th ”oor of a Manhattan hotel room, law enforcement of“cials said Friday. The pair checked into the penthouse suite of the Gotham Hotel at about 6 p.m. Thursday, police said at a brief news conference. They fell 23 ”oors, and were found on a second-”oor balcony at about 8:15 a.m. Friday in the rear courtyard of the hotel, police said. Law enforcement of“cials identi“ed the woman as Stephanie Adams and her son as Vincent. They were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The of“cials said she was involved in a custody dispute over Vincent with her estranged husband, a Manhattan chiropractor named Charles Nicolai, and police had been called to their home several times in the past few months. A receptionist who answered the phone at Nicolais of“ce said Nicolai would not comment and was unreachable. The New York Post pro“led Adams in 2013, saying that she had by then written more than 25 self-help books, ran an online beauty products company and managed the “nances in her husbands of“ce. She appeared in Playboy in 2003, worked with Elite Model Management and had two business degrees, according to the Post pro“le, The stereotypes are sexist and unfair,Ž Adams told the Post in the pro“le. Just because I look a certain way and have expensive tastes, it doesnt mean Im shallow. Style and looks dont mean lack of brains, sweetheart!Ž Adams and her husband were sued in 2013 by a massage therapist at the chiropractic of“ce who claimed she was “red because Nicolai said his wife could become jealous because the therapist was too cute.Ž The Gotham Hotel is on 46th street, about four blocks from Grand Central Terminal.Former Playboy centerfold apparently jumps to death with son ADAMS

The statement by North Koreas Red Cross came a week after Seoul said it would look more closely into the circumstances surrounding the womens arrival following a media report that suggested some of them might have been brought to the South against their will. Earlier in the week, North Korea canceled a high-level meeting with the South over U.S.-South Korean military exercises and threatened to call off a planned summit between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and President Donald Trump. The cancellation cooled what had been an unusual ”urry of diplomatic moves from Pyongyang following a provocative year of nuclear and missile tests. Kim met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a historic summit on April 27 where they issued a vague vow for the complete denuclearizationŽ of their peninsula and pledged permanent peace. More substantial discussions over the Norths nuclear weapons are expected between Kim and Trump in a meeting planned for June 12 in Singapore. The Norths Red Cross accused South Korean of“cials of evading responsibility and betraying the spirit of last months inter-Korean summit. It said Seoul should severely punish those involved in the case, send our women citizens to their families without delay and thus show the will to improve the NorthSouth ties.Ž Seoul had previously said it suf“ciently con“rmed the womens free will in escaping from the North and resettling in the South. North Korea had been accusing South Korea of abducting the women, who were working in China. Television network JTBC aired an interview earlier this month of a man it said was the manager of a restaurant in China where the women had been working. The man, whos now also in South Korea, said he carried out the escape under plans arranged by South Koreas National Intelligence Service and that the women were brought along without knowledge of where they were going. JTBC also interviewed four women who it said were among the group that arrived in the South. They said they didnt know where they were headed to until they reached the South Korean Embassy in Malaysia and that they wish to see their parents again. When the restaurant workers arrived in 2016, South Koreas then-conservative government said they represented the largest group defection by North Koreans to the South since Kim took power in 2011. Later in 2016, South Korea rejected a highly unusual overture by the North to temporarily send the restaurant workers relatives to the South to meet with them. South Koreas liberal government, elected last year, has reached out to North Korea in recent months in attempting to settle the international standoff over the Norths nuclear program.North Korea demands South Korea send back restaurant workersBy KIM TONG-HYUNGASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTONorth Korean defectors shout slogans during a rally against the possible repatriation of North Korean restaurant workers to North Korea, in front of the Government Complex in Seoul, South Korea, Saturday. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) „ Seven people in Saudi Arabia, including four prominent womens rights activists who campaigned for the right to drive, are being accused by state security of working with foreign entities.Ž Pro-government media outlets have splashed their photos online and on newspapers, accusing them of betrayal and of being traitors. The stunning arrests come before Saudi Arabia is set to lift the worlds only ban on women driving next month. The Interior Ministry late Saturday did not name those arrested, but said the group is being investigated for communicating with foreign entitiesŽ and providing money to foreign circles with the aim of destabilizing the kingdom. Pro-government media have published the names of those detained, which include Loujain al-Hathloul and Aziza al-Yousef. Both are outspoken and well-known activists whove pushed for greater womens rights.Detained Saudi women driving activists branded traitors WASHINGTON „ The Trump administration is aiming to roll out its much-hyped but longdelayed Middle East peace plan next month amid signs it may further alienate the Palestinians by slashing millions of dollars in funding for humanitarian and development projects in the West Bank and Gaza. Five U.S. of“cials and a congressional aide say the administration intends to release the peace plan in midto lateJune, shortly after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, although they cautioned that the timing could slip depending on developments in the region. They say the plans main authors „ President Donald Trumps son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and Trumps special envoy for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt „ have already begun quietly brie“ng select allies and partners on elements of the proposal. Yet any Palestinian willingness to even consider the plan would require conditions to improve and anger to subside considerably in the coming weeks, an unlikely scenario as the Palestinians say evidence of one-sided Trump giveaways to Israel continues to pile up. U.S. allies in Europe and the Persian Gulf also have felt compelled to criticize the administration for its approach. Ostensibly, Trump would need buy-in from those same countries to build enough momentum for any peace plan to succeed. The administration has been resisting congressional demands to fully close the Palestine Liberation Organization of“ce in Washington because Greenblatt and Kushner want to keep that channel open in case the Palestinians are open to re-entering negotiations with Israel based on the plan. The of“ce was ordered closed by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last November, but has been allowed to stay open for limited purposes under the administrations interpretation of the law requiring it to be shut down in the absence of peace talks. The prospect of Palestinian interest in the peace proposal appears dim, however, particularly since Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas recalled the missions chief earlier this week to protest Mondays opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. The embassy move is said to have contributed to violent protests in Gaza that were met with deadly force from Israel. Nearly 60 Palestinians were killed Monday by Israeli forces, drawing condemnations and calls for restraint from Europe and elsewhere. The U.S. declined to join those calls and, while regretting the loss of life, opposed efforts at the U.N. to open an international investigation into the violence. Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital, the embassy move and the administrations unreserved defense of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus policies have alienated and angered the Palestinian leadership, which accuses the administration of abandoning its role as a neutral arbiter in the con”ict. Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said any deal needs to be between the Palestinians and Israel „ not the United States. I dont need Jason Greenblatt. I dont need Kushner,Ž Erekat said. Its our lives.Ž That sense of betrayal may deepen signi“cantly this summer as millions of dollars in U.S. assistance to the Palestinians appears likely to be cut and the funds re-allocated to other regions. That money has been on hold since last year and existing funding for some projects will start to run out in just months if it is not approved in the next two weeks. If that does not happen, the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development will have to notify aid recipients that continued U.S. funding is not forthcoming and those programs will begin to be shut down. Local staffers would be laid off and U.S. of“cials running the projects would be reassigned elsewhere. Of $251 million in U.S. aid planned for the Palestinians in 2018, only $50.5 million has been reported spent, according to the governments online tracker, www.foreignassistance. gov. The remaining more than $200 million is currently on hold, a “gure that does not include an additional $65 million in frozen U.S. assistance to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which provides services to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon. The U.S. aid pays for programs on education, health, good governance and democracy promotion as well as disaster preparedness and security. For several months the White House has been sitting on State Department and USAID recommendations to spend at least some of the money, according to the of“cials. Three of“cials said there is no indication those recommendations will be acted upon any time soon despite appeals from lawmakers and even expressions of concern from Israel, which sees value in the assistance especially in the security sector. One of“cial said there was an overwhelming lack of urgencyŽ about making a decision on the funding. The other two said there was no sign that the end-of-May timeframe would be met. At immediate risk are between “ve and 10 of the some 20 USAID projects in the West Bank and Gaza, along with proposed new initiatives, the of“cials said. Without a quick decision those will run out of money by the end of 2018, they said. Nearly all of the others will run out of money in early 2019 unless the U.S. funding is unblocked, they said.White House pushes with Mideast peace planBy MATTHEW LEEAP DIPLOMATIC WRITER HAVANA „ The only three survivors of Cubas worst aviation disaster in three decades were clinging to life Saturday, a day after their passenger jet carrying 110 people crashed in a “reball in Havanas rural outskirts. Carlos Alberto Martinez, director of the Calixto Garcia Hospital in the Cuban capital, said doctors are always hopeful that their patients will recover, but he acknowledged that the three Cuban women were in extremely grave condition. Meanwhile relatives of those who died gathered at a morgue in the capital, weeping and embracing each other, as investigators tried to piece together why the aging Boeing 737 went down and erupted in ”ames shortly after takeoff early Friday afternoon. And the Cuban Council of Churches announced that 20 clergy members of an evangelical church were among the dead. On that plane were 10 couples of pastors, 20 people. All of the Nazarene Church in the eastern region,Ž said Maite Quesada, a member of the council. The pastors had spent several days at a meeting in the capital and were returning to their homes and places of worship in the province of Holguin. Skies were overcast and rainy at the airport at the time of Cubas third major air accident since 2010, and state television said the 39-year-old jet veered sharply to the right after departing on a domestic ”ight to the eastern city of Holguin. Eyewitness and private salon owner Rocio Martinez said she heard a strange noise and looked up to see the plane with a turbine on “re. In ”ames, here it comes falling toward the ground, and it seems (the pilot) saw it was an area that was too residential and makes a sharp turn,Ž Martinez said. To avoid (the houses) ... to avoid a tragedy, because there would have been a massacre.Ž Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said a special commission had been formed to “nd the cause of the crash. The plane had 104 passengers and six crew members. State airline Cubana, which operated the ”ight, has had a generally good safety record but is notorious for delays and cancellations and has taken many of its planes out of service because of maintenance problems in recent months, prompting it to hire charter aircraft from other companies. Mexican of“cials said the Boeing 737-201 was built in 1979 and rented by Cubana from Aerolineas Damojh, a small charter company that also goes by the name Global Air. Aviation authorities in Guyana last year stopped the same aircraft from conducting charter ”ights because of serious safety concerns, including fears about excessive baggage overloading and other issues. Outside the companys Mexico City of“ces on Friday, former Global Air ”ight attendant Ana Marlen Covarrubias said she had worked for the company for over seven years and knows nearly all the crew members. In addition to the Mexican crew, Cuban Communist Party newspaper Granma reported that the passengers were mostly Cubans plus “ve foreigners from countries it did not identify. Argentinas Foreign Ministry said two of its citizens had died in the crash. In November 2010 a Global Air ”ight originating in Mexico City made an emergency landing in Puerto Vallarta because its front landing gear did not deploy. The “re was quickly extinguished, and none of the 104 people aboard were injured. That plane was a 737 “rst put into service in 1975. Mexican aviation authorities said a team of experts would ”y to Cuba on Saturday to take part in the investigation.Cuba: 3 survivors critical after plane crashBy ANDREA RODRIGUEZ and MICHAEL WEISSENSTEINASSOCIATED PRESS The few surviving passengers of an airliner that crashed arrive at the Calixto Garcia General Hospital in Havana, Cuba, Friday.

Today in history On May 20, 1899, taxi driver Jacob German was pulled over and arrested by a police officer riding a bicycle for speeding down Manhattans Lexington Avenue in his electric car at 12 miles an hour at a time when the speed limit was 8 mph; it was the first recorded speeding arrest in U.S. history. On this date In 1712 the original version of Alexander Popes satirical mock-heroic poem The Rape of the LockŽ was published anonymously in Lintots Miscellany. In 1873 Levi Strauss and tailor Jacob Davis received a U.S. patent for mens work pants made with copper rivets. In 1927 Charles Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field in Long Island, New York, aboard the Spirit of St. Louis on his historic solo flight to France. In 1932 Amelia Earhart took off from Newfoundland to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. (Because of weather and equipment problems, Earhart set down in Northern Ireland instead of her intended destination, France.) In 1988 a 30-year-old woman walked into a Illinois elementary school classroom, where she shot to death an 8-year-old and wounded several other children. After wounding a young man at his home, the shooter took her own life. Todays birthdays Actor-author James McEachin is 88. Actor Anthony Zerbe is 82. Actor David Proval is 76.

A Nebraska Humane Society worker rescued the squirrels from a pine tree in Omaha last week. Nebraska Wildlife Rehab executive director Laura Stastny told the Omaha World-Herald that the sap-covered tails became knotted as the youngsters wrestled in their nest. Stastny says they are about 8 weeks old. Resident Craig Luttman spotted the rodents predicament, describing it Thursday as kind of like a tug of war, going in completely opposite directions.Ž Stastny gave the squirrels a mild painkiller before removing the sticky fur and untangling them. She says some of them suffered injuries to their tails, but that she expects all six to be released in a few weeks.ODD NEWS 6 young squirrels rescued from tangled tails In this May 14, photo provided by Craig Luttman via the AP, the tails of six squirrels are stuck together by tree sap.FROM PAGE ONEa surprise as there was no indication during her public appearances in recent weeks, including during a state visit by Frances president, that Mrs. Trump had been ailing. One week before the procedure, a beaming Mrs. Trump, 48, presided over a splashy announcement ceremony in the White House Rose Garden to introduce her Be BestŽ public awareness campaign to help teach kindness to children. Grisham said Monday that the procedure was successful,Ž there were no complications and that Mrs. Trump would probably remain hospitalized for the duration of the week.Ž The president then tweeted Tuesday that his wife would be released in 2 or 3Ž days, but Thursday and Friday passed without word from the White House on her whereabouts. Trump had visited her during her “rst three days of hospitalization. But he did not visit Thursday or Friday, leading some to wonder whether that meant the “rst lady had been discharged. The “rst lady said Wednesday on Twitter that she was feeling greatŽ and looking forward to going home, but gave no indication of when that might happen. On Friday, she tweeted about the deadly school shooting at a Houstonarea high school but did not update her followers on her medical situation. Urologists with no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trumps condition said the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma. Theyre not common but tend to occur in middle-aged women and can cause problematic bleeding if they become large enough, said Dr. Keith Kowalczyk of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Doctors often treat the condition by cutting off the blood supply so the growth shrinks, added Dr. Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. That is done with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to “nd the right one to block. Most of the time, these tumors are found when people undergo medical scans for another reason, but sometimes people have pain or other symptoms, Kowalczyk said. Many times, embolization patients go home the same day or the next. Grisham on Saturday characterized speculation about the “rst lady as uninformed,Ž adding that every patient is different. Mrs. Trump has a medical team that is comfortable with her care, which is all that matters,Ž she said. Her recovery and privacy are paramount and I will have no further comment beyond this.Ž The question of what level of accountability should be expected of “rst ladies is dif“cult because they are private citizens, yet public “gures who draw keen interest from the public, have taxpayer-supported staff and sometimes involve themselves in politics and policy. Myra Gutin, a Rider University professor who studies presidents wives, recalled the backlash Rosalynn Carter suffered for attending Cabinet meetings; she explained that she just wanted to get things right because she was so often out and about representing President Jimmy Carter. The White House has a mixed record on disclosing information about the ailments of “rst ladies. Nancy Reagan revealed in 1987 that she had breast cancer and had her left breast surgically removed. But nearly two decades later, the White House found itself on the defensive for its after-thefact disclosure that Laura Bush had skin cancer removed from her right shin in November 2006. Mrs. Bush had decided it was a private matter, but it nonetheless came to light after she was seen wearing a bandage below her right knee. The following year, the White House proactively disclosed that Mrs. Bush would have surgery to relieve pain from pinched nerves in her neck. The problem kept her from accompanying President George W. Bush on a trip to Australia. Sheila Tate, a press secretary to Mrs. Reagan, said the “rst lady felt it was appropriate to reveal her breast cancer diagnosis. Such disclosures by a “rst lady arent absolutely required, by any means,Ž Tate said. Melania is entitled to her privacy, if thats what she wants.ŽFIRST LADYFROM PAGE 1 Three people were initially trapped, but eventually got out of a hazardous area; one was evacuated by air, said Janet Snyder, spokeswoman for Hawaii County. One Friday, four people were evacuated by county and National Guard helicopters. They shouldnt be in that area,Ž said County Managing Director Wil Okabe. He wants people to heed evacuation warnings. Edwin Montoya, who lives with his daughter on her farm near the site where lava crossed the road and cut off access, said the “ssure opened and grew quickly. It was just a little crack in the ground, with a little lava coming out,Ž he said. Now its a big crater that opened up where the small little crack in the ground was.Ž Experts are uncertain about when the volcano might calm down. The Big Island volcano released a small explosion at its summit just before midnight Friday, sending an ash cloud 10,000 feet into the sky. The USGSs Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said eruptions that create even minor amounts of ashfall could occur at any time. This follows the more explosive eruption Thursday, which emitted ash and rocks thousands of feet into the sky. No one was injured and there were no reports of damaged property. Scientists said the eruption was the most powerful in recent days, though it probably lasted only a few minutes. It came two weeks after the volcano began sending lava ”ows into neighborhoods 25 miles to the east of the summit. Several open “ssure vents are still producing lava splatter and ”ow in evacuated areas. Gas is also pouring from the vents, cloaking homes and trees in smoke. The fresher, hotter magma will allow faster lava ”ows that can potentially cover more area, said Janet Babb, a geologist with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Much of the lava that has emerged so far may have been underground for decades, perhaps since a 1955 eruption. Meanwhile, more explosive eruptions from the summit are possible. We have no way of knowing whether this is really the beginning or toward the end of this eruption,Ž said Tom Shea, a volcanologist at the University of Hawaii. Were kind of all right now in this world of uncertainty.Ž U.S. government scientists, however, are trying to pin down those signals so we have a little better warning,Ž said Wendy Stovall, a volcanologist with the observatory. The greatest ongoing hazard stems from the lava ”ows and the hot, toxic gases spewing from open “ssure vents close to homes and critical infrastructure, said Charles Mandeville of the U.S. Geological Surveys volcano hazards program. Authorities have been measuring gases, including sulfur dioxide, rising in little puffs from open vents. The area affected by lava and ash is small compared to the Big Island, which is about 4,000 square miles. Most of the island and the rest of the Hawaiian chain is unaffected by the volcanic activity on Kilauea. State and local of“cials have been reminding tourists that ”ights in and out of the entire state, including the Big Island, have not been impacted. Even on the Big Island, most tourist activities are still available and businesses are open.LAVAFROM PAGE 1leg.Ž She was treated at a hospital and spoke with a brown bandage wrapped around her wound. It was a very scary thing,Ž Quintanilla said. I was worried that I wasnt going to be able to make it back to my family.Ž In their “rst statement since Fridays massacre, Pagourtzis family said the bloodshed seems incompatible with the boy we love.Ž We are as shocked and confused as anyone else by these events,Ž said the statement, which offered prayers and condolences to the victims. Relatives said they remained mostly in the dark about the speci“csŽ of the attack and shared the publics hunger for answers.Ž Zach Wofford, a senior, said he was in his agricultural shop class when he heard gun“re from the art classroom across the hall. He said substitute teacher Chris West went into the hall to investigate and pulled a “re alarm. He saved many people today,Ž Wofford said of West. The mother of one slain student said her daughter may have been targeted because she rejected advances from Pagourtzi, who was an ex-boyfriend of her daughters best friend. Sadie Rodriguez said her 16-year-old daughter, Shana Fisher, repeatedly told him no, and he continued to get more aggressive.Ž The week before the shooting, Fisher stood up to himŽ by embarrassing him in class, Rodriguez said. The Houston branch of the FBI tweeted Saturday that 13 people were wounded in the attack, up from 10 previously. Hospitals reported treating 14 people with shooting-related injuries Friday, and the reason for the discrepancy still was not clear. In addition to a shotgun and a handgun, Pagourtzis also had several kinds of homemade explosive devices, but they were not capable of detonating, Henry said. Investigators found a group of carbon dioxide canisters taped together, and a pressure cooker with an alarm clock and nails inside. But the canisters had no detonation device, and the pressure cooker had no explosive material, Henry said. They were intended to look like IEDs, but they were totally non-functional,Ž Henry said, referring to the improvised explosive devices common in the early years of the U.S.-led war in Iraq. Authorities have offered no motive, but they said in a probable-cause af“davit that the suspect had admitted to carrying out the shooting. The gunman told police that when he opened “re, he avoided shooting students he liked so he could have his story told,Ž the af“davit said. From “rst word of the shooting, at 7:32 a.m. Friday, until con“rmation that the suspect was in custody, the attack lasted about half an hour. Dispatch records indicate that law enforcement “rst entered the building about seven minutes later after learning of the assault. The suspect was said to be in custody at 8:03 a.m. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the assailant got a handgun and shotgun from his father, who owned them legally. But it was not clear whether the father knew his son had taken them or if the father could face prosecution. State law makes it illegal to give a gun to anyone under 18, except under the supervision of an adult for hunting or sport shooting. Pagourtzis, who appeared to have no prior arrests or confrontations with law enforcement, made an initial court appearance on capital murder charges Friday. A judge denied bond and took his application for a court-appointed attorney. The shooting in Santa Fe, a city of 13,000 people about 30 miles southeast of Houston, was the nations deadliest such attack since the Parkland, Florida, massacre that killed 17 and energized the teen-led gun-control movement. It was also the deadliest assault in Texas since a man with a semi-automatic ri”e attacked a rural church late last year, killing more than two dozen people. Meanwhile, students were being let back inside Santa Fe High School to gather belongings they abandoned when the gun“re began. The schools roughly 1,400 students were to be allowed inside in groups of no more than 10 accompanied by of“cers, said Walter Braun, the school districts chief of police.GUNMANFROM PAGE 1 A student, left, reacts after retrieving her belongings inside Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas, on Saturday.

In addition to its namesake Pepsi line, the company boasts 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion apiece in annual revenue, including Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Tropicana, Quaker, Lays, Doritos and Cheetos. Currently, PepsiCo dishes out $0.805 per share quarterly, with its dividend recently yielding 3.25 percent. The company has increased its dividend annually for 45 consecutive years (through 2017), and further increases are likely. PepsiCos wide moat, featuring intangible assets, cost advantages and brand power, keeps competitors at bay. And it boasts strong relationships with distributors and retailers. One challenge facing PepsiCo is that consumer tastes in the U.S. are trending toward healthier products. In response, PepsiCo is adding healthier items to its lineup, such as Tropicana Essentials Probiotics, while promoting existing healthier options such as its juices and aiming to reduce the sodium content in its foods. Meanwhile, international demand for much of PepsiCos offerings is growing. PepsiCo is cutting costs by increasing automation, recently implementing robotic truck loaders at shipping centers and automating some packing processes. With a solid dividend and some underappreciated growth catalysts, PepsiCo is worth considering for your long-term portfolio. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentAn Unhealthy ScamMy dumbest investment was a company out of Bainbridge Island, Washington, many years ago. The marketing was brilliant, with a sign at Safeco Field, Shaquille ONeal wearing the company hat at an NBA championship celebration and more. It seemed to be a successful high-tech health business, aiming to combine fitness and health services under one roof. I toured the facilities, met staff and was impressed. I invested $10,000 in the company, but it turned out to be a scam. I cant recall managements names, but they should be getting out of prison soon. „ S.O., online The Fool Responds: You werent alone „ that was cited as the largest stock fraud case in Washington state history. Its easy to get excited about fascinating and promising businesses you run across, but you should aim to dig into them deeply before investing „ even more so when theyre small and/or young. Hearing managements rosy outlook isnt enough, and touring the premises isnt necessary. Look into the history and track record of management. Look into their books to see whether theyre turning their great ideas into profits. Look into current and possible future competitors, and weigh all risks facing the company. Even if you do all that, a company could still surprise you by imploding. Thus, its smart to protect your money by spreading it across a bunch of companies (or a simple and low-fee index fund) and not just a few. Watch That Watch ListQHow should I go about creating and using a stock watch list? „ M.S., Warren, OhioAStart by jotting down the names of companies you read or hear about that seem like promising investments. You could do so on paper, but maintaining a list online is easier. You can set up an online watch list or portfolioŽ full of stocks of interest at sites such as and others. You might pretend that you bought one or more shares of each at the stock price at which you first noticed the company.Meanwhile, research and follow the companies on your list and get to know them well. When youre ready to buy, youll be familiar with a bunch of companies and will have a sense of which are strongest, growing most briskly and priced attractively. Monitoring your list will also help you notice when a company of interest falls in price significantly, presenting a possibly great buying opportunity. When that happens, do further research to make sure any problems its facing seem temporary and not protracted.***QWhats window dressing,Ž financially speaking? „ T.D., Watertown, WisconsinAWindow dressing is a not-so-great practice employed by some mutual fund managers. Since fund managers have to report regularly on their funds holdings and they want to impress existing and potential shareholders, some will sell poor performers and replace them with popular stocks before the reporting period ends. That will make a good impression on someone reviewing their list of holdings as of the end of the quarter.You might avoid being taken in by window dressing by favoring funds with low turnover ratios, which reflect relatively infrequent trading activity.Want more information about stocks?

Though you cant totally control them, with forethought you can steer them in the right direction. Decide on your ocial stance, and stick to it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21).

Even if someone does ask, there are a million ways to avoid the question. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). History is art that includes facts.

The Sun /Sunday, May 20, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I belong to a family that doesnt respond to RSVPs for weddings or wedding showers. They often arrive late, leave weddings early and sometimes dont stay to eat at the reception even when it has been catered at a cost of $100 a person. My adult children always ask me to call my siblings to check whether they are coming or not so some of their friends can be included if the family isnt coming. I just spoke with my brother about an upcoming wedding, and he informed me that he and his family mayŽ decide to extend their camping trip and miss it, even though they had RSVPd with their meal selections. My wife was raised to observe the rules of etiquette, something she has passed on to our four children, but my family never received that kind of instruction. I love my siblings and their families, and feel privileged whenever we get together to celebrate a wedding or special event. How can I improve the situation without hurting feelings and creating turmoil? „ FAMILY PEACEMAKER DEAR PEACEMAKER: Ill resist the urge to suggest you buy your relatives a book on etiquette. Start by explaining the rules to your siblings in a non-confrontational way. For instance, after you send an invitation, call and verify that the recipients plan to attend. If the answer is maybe,Ž tell them the meals cost $100 a plate, which is why its important to have an accurate head count. Because they dont know any better, I suppose its your responsibility to explain the rules of common courtesy to your family each time you invite them to join you for anything. When your brother told you he and his family might extend their camping trip, I hope you responded that you would be taking them o the guest list and hope theyll have a great time. DEAR ABBY: Im almost 20, in my second year of college, and I have never been in a relationship. Usually I shrug it o, but lately it has been really bothering me. I know Im not alone because a lot of my friends are in a similar situation. Im just afraid that Ill end up alone, or if I do ever nd someone, I wont know how to act. Please help. „ FRUSTRATED IN CLOVIS, CALIF. DEAR FRUSTRATED: Ill try, so bear with me. Please quit ogging yourself. Youre in college and on a path to success. To obsess about ending up alone is a distraction and a waste of time. Stop being afraid of what mightŽ happen. Enjoy your college experience. Meet as many people as you can and make friends. The more friends you have, the greater your chances of nding what youre looking for. As to not knowing how to act when you nally meet someone special, I guarantee that you will know how to act because you WONT BE ACTING. You will just be yourself, and that will be all you need.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Its important to keep them clean because bacteria can grow on a plastic or wooden board, particularly in the cracks of wood. So heres how to properly clean and disinfect your cutting boards. Plastic and wooden boards can be cleaned easily in hot, soapy water. To disinfect a cutting board, soak it for two minutes in a mixture of 2 tablespoons of bleach and 1 gallon of water. Always dry thoroughly. Never soak a wooden board for a long period or put it into the dishwasher. Store them upright. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I use a lot of lemons, limes and oranges, and I nd it hard to get all the juice out of them. How do I get more juice? „ Becky of Georgia Dear Becky: Here are several hints to make this task easier. First, let the fruit sit on the counter at room temperature. You also can place citrus fruit in a bowl of warm water or warm it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds. Then, roll the fruit on a hard surface with your hands before cutting. Using a juicer will help, too. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Laundry can be a time-consuming task, as we all know. Try these hints to get your family to help. Teach your children (and husband!) about laundry and taking care of their clothing, the products that are used and how the washer and dryer work (when they are old enough). Give each child a dierentcolored laundry basket to put in their rooms. When the basket is full, they should take it to the laundry room. Show them how to sort garments by color and wash them and how to fold clothing. „ Heloise Dear Readers: The most important thing to do after buying a large appliance is to make certain you get it properly installed by a professional. Save the manual and any instructional material that comes with it. Store the warranty or guarantee with the manual so you can nd it later. Locate a top-notch appliance repair service. If you lose the manuals, you still should be able to nd the information online. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I have several old parking decals that I need to remove from my car window. How can I get them o? „ Elle from Ohio Dear Elle: They do seem tough to get o, but try this: Apply a couple of coats of household vinegar or a petroleum-based spray to the decals. Let it soak for several minutes, then use a scraper to remove them. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Our dogs are such messy eaters. Try this: Before you put food into the dish, spray it with an unavored, nonstick spray. Then you can just wipe out the crud. Put a rubber mat with a lip under the food and water bowls, too. „ HeloiseFamily was absent the day that wedding etiquette was taughtDear Abby Hints from Heloise


Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 FROM PAGE ONEbathing the ancient stones of Windsor Castle in a beautiful spring light. Many in the throng who waited outside also embraced the trans-Atlantic symbolism of the moment. Sheraton Jones, 22, who is from California but studying in Britain, described it as a melding of cultures. It was very touching, its two different cultures kind of coming together, it was just so surreal,Ž she said. In the United States, this royal wedding was embraced for its diversity and inclusivity. This was black history,Ž said Joy Widgeon, who attended a house party in Burlington, New Jersey, with her 6and 8-year-old daughters. African-Americans were front and center at the royal wedding. This was the “rst time, and hopefully it wont be the last. I am here for it.Ž Harry also invited buddies from his 10 years of military service „ which included two tours of duty in Afghanistan „ and from many of the charities he supports, which have focused on helping wounded veterans and encouraging a more open discussion of mental health issues. To kick off the festivities, Queen Elizabeth II honored her red-headed, 33-year-old grandson with a new title: the Duke of Sussex, making the 36-year-old Markle the Duchess of Sussex. The American actress drew raves for her sleek white silk boat-necked dress by U.K. designer Clare Waight Keller of the French fashion house Givenchy. Her sheer veil „ down to her waist in front and billowing for what seemed like miles behind her „ carried ”oral references to all 53 countries in the Commonwealth, countries drawn mostly from the former British Empire, headed by Markles new grandmother-in-law, the queen. The dress is simply beautiful in its classic simplicity,Ž said Caroline Burstein, owner of Browns Bride, a top London bridal boutique. She called it a nod to Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and every iconic wedding we have witnessed throughout the 20th and 21st century. Its perfect for her and for the occasion they are celebrating.Ž The palace said Markle also selected two other plant designs to be on the veil: Wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace, where the royal couple will live, and the California poppy, in a nod to the brides birthplace. Harry and best man Prince William wore white gloves and the frock coat uniforms of the Blues and Royals army regiment, in which Harry was once an of“cer. Harry also kept his full red beard „ a style decision that had sparked British betting earlier. Markle at “rst walked down the aisle with 10 young page boys and bridesmaids, then was accompanied by Prince Charles to the altar. As his father and bride drew close, Harry said: Thank you, Pa.Ž To Markle, Harry said: You look amazing.Ž Markle seemed poised and con“dent as she delivered her vows without so much as a quiver in her voice. She smiled broadly as archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby declared the couple husband and wife. Harry seemed a bit nervous but happy. As they emerged from the chapel, the couple kissed „ and the crowd roared. It just kept on cheering as Harry helped his wife fold her 16-foot train into the Ascot Landau carriage as they began their procession through the streets of Windsor. Police said more than 100,000 people lined the route. The royal couples open-topped carriage was pulled by four Windsor Grey horses and past crowds waving ”ags and holding cellphones aloft. The newlyweds smiled and waved, smiled at each other, waved and repeated the process for the 25-minute tour of Windsor. Other relatives in the ceremony included 4-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, the oldest children of William and the Duchess of Cambridge. The 92-year-old queen and her 96-year-old husband, Prince Philip, Harrys grandparents, looked on with pride, as did Markles mother, Doria Ragland, who has spent the last few days getting to know her daughters new family. Two of Harrys ex-girlfriends were at the chapel „ Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas „ as was Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Harrys uncle, Prince Andrew. The queen hosted the “rst of two royal wedding receptions after the service Saturday, one in the afternoon for 600 people with “nger foods, wine and champagne. On Saturday night, a second, more lively reception for 200 people was being thrown by Charles. Yet it was the crowds in Windsor that seemed to best capture the joy of the moment. Many had camped or arrived at dawn on packed trains, vying for a good spot along the procession route. They cheered and screamed and sighed as the newlyweds passed by.WEDDINGFROM PAGE 1 UK POOL/SKY NEWS VIA APIn this frame from video, Britains Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand during their wedding ceremony at St. Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle in Windsor, near London, England, Saturday.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 In light of recent arrests in what the Broward County Sheriffs Of“ce is calling a fraudulent real estate ring, I want to take this opportunity to provide you with tips on how to protect yourself. With this type of fraud, authorities say homes are illegally taken without owners consent. The rise of technology has made it very easy to create fraudulent documents that can be easily recorded in public records, and these documents can make it appear that your property was sold or belongs to someone else. As with most dangers, awareness and diligence are the best ways to protect yourself. Since the property appraiser keeps records online, the most straightforward way to make sure you are not a victim of this sort of fraud is to check regularly. However, with the press of modern life, it can be dif“cult to remember to do this. This leads to what I consider the most important method: being aware of changes. For example, if you start getting mail addressed to a different name at your address, or stop getting mail that you normally might, it can be a sign that there is an issue. Any new deed recorded in the public records triggers a slew of mail advertisements, so they are a great warning sign that something is up. Another example can be sudden unsolicited interest from prospective real estate agents, water softener or similar home service-related companies, or even prospective tenants showing up at your home. If anything sets off your gut-check alarm,Ž go online and check the property appraiser for changes „ and then check it again a few weeks later to con“rm. If you own a vacation home or any other property that you manage from a distance or keep vacant, you will need to be extra-vigilant, since these sorts of properties are especially vulnerable to fraud. Find a neighbor, or hire a reputable property manager, to regularly check and report on your property. Also, make sure to have mail related to that property forwarded to you, and be concerned if the ”ow stops unexpectedly. The overarching lesson is to investigate anything that seems strange. Most times there will be nothing amiss. But once in a while there is, and it is much, much easier to avoid a problem than to spend a lot of time and money “xing one. Gary M.

Travel changes you. I “rmly believe that. Whether you are visiting a new state, or a new country, when you stretch out and explore someplace new, meeting the people, sampling the fare, drinking in the beauty, it fuels your imagination and helps you see the world in a fresh way. It can also in”uence how you decorate your home. In addition to a suitcase full of dirty clothes and a camera packed with new photos, you return from an adventure with a head bursting with new ideas. Thats what happened to my friend Lisa, when she and her family vacationed in Florence, Italy. She carried with her the seed for a beautiful room redo that fuses the aesthetics and atmosphere of Italy with her Midwestern traditional style. Before its Italian renaissance, Lisa and Jons bedroom was already drop-dead beautiful. We featured it, and other rooms in her home, in my book Feather Your Nest.Ž Lisa was ready to update the space a bit, and her travels served as her muse. Florence has been inspiring visitors for centuries, and everywhere you turn, you are greeted by beauty. The seed that grew into this lovely room redo was sewn in the hotel where the family stayed during their time in Florence. Lisa was struck the by clean, classic design she saw there, the story told through elegant furnishings and “nishes, using a brush of blue and white. Although she is a talented designer with an innate ability to mix pattern and color, Lisa reached out to Anne at Nell Hills to help her bring her vision to life. The spacious master bedroom had plenty of room to add a sitting area where Lisa and Jon could lounge. They added a navy blue velvet sofa piped in creamy white linen, and two swivel rocker chairs upholstered in a fresh but forgiving white canvas fabric. The upholstered ottoman was just the thing for putting your feet up after a long day. Lisa was ready to update the lamps in her room, so she added these modern chinoiserie lamps, with their ontrend Lucite bases and white box shades. One of the many things I admire about Lisa is her execution. She pays a great deal of attention to details, and it shows. When you take the time to look at the intricate displays around her home, you are always rewarded. Lisa wanted her bed to be covered in snowy white linens, with just a touch of blue. Notice how the trim around each set of pillows is slightly different. The monogrammed pillows steal the show. You can never have too many trays,Ž Lisa says. Youll “nd creative displays on trays all over Lisas house. This lovely tableau on the ottoman in the bedrooms sitting area is stunning and simple. And, is frequently slid out of the way by Lisas daughters, who now invade their parents retreat on a regular basis to do homework or watch TV, much to Lisas chagrin. Its the downside of making a space so inviting.

C6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 Q: Why have mortgage interest rates been creeping up over the last few months? A: Recent declines in unemployment to rock bottom levels and the accompanying increase in the in”ation rate have induced the Federal Reserve to tighten credit in order to dampen further price increases. The process will continue until the emergence of the next recession, which is overdue. Q: What interest rates predict the direction future mortgage interest rates will take? A: Before the development of secondary mortgage markets, there was an answer to this question. Changes in mortgage rates lagged changes in corporate bond yields by anywhere from two to eight months. Today, however, the mortgage market is so thoroughly integrated into the broader capital market that there are no leading indicators of mortgage rates. Mortgage rates and bond yields change together. A large proportion of all mortgages are placed in pools against which mortgage-backed securities (MBSs) are issued. MBSs trade actively in the market and are considered close substitutes for bonds. Any change in bond yields, therefore, is transmitted instantly to the MBS market. Mortgage loan originators, in turn, base their rates primarily on yields in the MBS market. Originators usually post their rates at about 11 a.m. EST, after they see the opening yields on MBSs that morning. Q: What are the legitimate and illegitimate reasons why Jones gets a lower mortgage rate than Smith? A: The legitimate reasons are embedded in the rate sheets lenders produce daily for their loan of“cers. Assuming Jones and Smith deal with the same lender, these reasons include the following: „Jones paid points „ an upfront charge „ to reduce his rate where Smith did not. „Jones had a signi“cantly lower credit score. „Jones loan is secured by his primary residence whereas Smith is borrowing to “nance an investment property. „Jones property is a single-family unit whereas Smiths is a duplex. „Smith is taking cash outŽ of a re“nance, whereas Jones isnt. „Jones is willing to set up an escrow account with which the lender will pay taxes and insurance whereas Smith is not. „The rate on Jones loan was set on Monday whereas Smith didnt lock his rate until Tuesday after market rates had risen. „Smith needs a 60-day rate lock whereas Jones needs only 30 days. If Jones and Smith deal with different lenders, they may be quoted different rates on the same deal just because one of the lenders is pricing more aggressively that day. I would not call that rate difference illegitimateŽ; it is the way the system works. In todays market, those rate differences are small. Prior to the “nancial crisis, illegitimate rate differences arose out of the efforts of some loan of“cers to induce vulnerable borrowers to pay a rate above the rate set by the lender in its price sheet. Revisions to Truth in Lending have since eliminated that practice. Q: Since my mortgage interest charges are more than covered by the return on my common stock, is there a good reason for me sell the stock to pay off the mortgage? A: Over long periods, you will probably earn considerably more on a diversi“ed portfolio of common stock than you will pay on a mortgage, which is the argument for retaining your stocks. There is a risk, however, that you could earn less. To add some precision to this generalization, I recently used the Ibbotson database of stock returns published by Morningstar to calculate rates of return over every 10, 15, 20 and 25year period during the 87 years ending in 2012. The average return during the 924 10-year periods was 10.52 percent, with a high of 21.43 percent and a low of minus 4.95 percent. The rate of return was negative during 52 of the 10-year periods. In contrast, over the 744 25-year periods, the average return was 11.34 percent, with a high of 17.26 percent and a low of 5.62 percent. The return was positive in every single 25-year period. The moral is clear. Accumulating stock in your early working years while you are paying off a mortgage is a good idea because time is your ally. As you approach retirement, the risk grows that your stock portfolio will take a nose dive that leaves insuf“cient time for a recovery. To avoid that, you want your mortgage to be retired “rst, preferably from additional savings but from sale of the stock if necessary.

The benchmark 30-year rate pushed toward the signi“cant 5 percent level. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, “xed-rate mortgages was 4.61 percent, up from 4.55 percent last week. The new average rate was the highest since May 19, 2011. By contrast, the 30-year rate averaged 4.02 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, “xed-rate loans climbed to 4.08 percent from 4.01 percent last week. The latest indications of a strong economy and rising commodity prices „ gasoline is at a four-year high „ lifted yields on bonds and mortgage rates followed suit. U.S. retail sales rose at a solid pace in April, according to a government report issued Tuesday, a sign that consumers may be rebounding from weak spending earlier this year and driving stronger economic growth. Consumer spending has rebounded in the past two months after a weak January and February, a trend that could accelerate growth in the April-June quarter. Despite higher borrowing costs and home prices, demand for home purchases has grown so far in the spring buying season, as the economic outlook has continued to improve and bolstered consumer con“dence. Still, in”ationary pressures and the prospect of (mortgage) rates approaching 5 percent could begin to hit the psyche of some prospective buyers,Ž said Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The fee on 30-year “xed-rate mortgages fell to 0.4 point from 0.5 point last week. The fee for 15-year mortgages was unchanged at 0.4 point. The average rate for “ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages jumped to 3.82 percent from 3.77 percent last week. The fee remained at 0.3 percent.US average mortgage rates at 7-year highsThe Associated Press THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis April 2018 le photo shows a sold sign in front of a home in Jackson, Miss.

Modernize the railings Your railing system could be the one thing standing between you and a polished, modern aesthetic. Outdated spindles and handrails dont inspire „ they simply function. Your railings can be functional as well as complementary. So, if your staircase is out of date, consider upgrading to a system that “ts your style and personality. Glass railings, for example, are a perfect “t for minimal modern designs. They create a sleek, updated look. And horizontal metal railings are a high-end trend that can bring your stairs out of the past and into the height of style. They enhance a modern, industrial design as an anchoring focal point. Plus, theyre available in various metals, such as aluminum and stainless steel. 2. Upgrade the spindles Replace your spindles „ or balusters „ with wrought-iron styles that speak to your personality. The metal trend is growing and, as high-end designers demand more and more customized designs, your options in the wrought-iron market are growing as well. This material can be manipulated into curves, arches and geometric shapes to create unique and playful designs. You can also “nd it in traditional or minimal designs. Whichever suits you, simply swap out your outdated oak spindles for wrought iron and keep the wooden handrail to blend traditional with contemporary. 3. Play up the risers When you look at the stairs straight-on, the risers take up the most visual space. This is where you can get the greatest advantage with the smallest budget. Give your staircase a big pop of personality with colorful paint or wallpaper „ or integrate both by alternating them. Get a sleek, sophisticated look with white paint or an elegant, minimal pattern. For as little as $10, you can even buy peel-andstick decals in various colors and designs to enhance your stairs in less than an hour. 4. Roll out a runner A runner is one of the easiest and highest-impact options for updating your staircase. It wont only make your stairs more safe, it will also add visual interest and personality. A runner that sharply contrasts your stairs can give them a modern look in an instant. A runner that features regal patterns and lush colors can add elegance and richness. A wild color, like bright pink or Mediterranean blue, can change the look and feel of the entire space around it „ and re”ect your personal style. 5. Play with paint Anything is possible with paint. Paint your balusters in an accent color youve chosen for your space, such as a sun”ower yellow to match a piece of art. Create depth by painting the railing and balusters slightly similar shades, such as terra cotta and a warm, deep brown to complement your clay dcor. For a bold color scheme, consider a rainbow or ombre look.5 ways to revamp your staircaseBy LAUREN WHITEHOMEADVISOR METRO CREATIVE IMAGESChanges to your stairs can transform your entire space.Of the 29 projects it studied for its 2017 Cost vs. Value Report,Ž Remodeling magazine found that the average payback in resale value was 64.3 cents. The lone project in the 2017 report to return a higher value than its cost was the installation of loose-“ll insulation in an attic, which provided a return of 107.7 percent. Homeowners who replaced an existing entry door with a 20-gauge steel unit recouped 90.7 percent of their investment at resale, placing that project second on the list. What helps homeowners who “nance such projects recoup their associated costs is the relatively low sticker price of the projects, which both rank among the “ve least expensive projects examined in the 2017 report. But a recovering real estate market has helped homeowners recoup more of their investments on some expensive projects as well. For example, the 2017 report saw the biggest year-over-year percentage increases in value on expensive projects like upscale bathroom remodels, upscale master suites, two-story additions, grand entrance installations, and family room additions. The increase in value on those projects ranged from 5.6 percent to 7.4 percent from a year earlier. City dwellers looking to buy rather than rent an apartment may come across real estate listings categorized as co-ops.Ž While co-ops can exist anywhere, notes that they are most common in big cities, comprising as much as 75 percent of the housing inventory in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Co-op is short for "cooperative," and people who buy into a co-op are not technically buying property but shares in an entity that owns the property where investors will ultimately live. The bigger the apartment in the building, the more shares the buyer will own. Residents of a co-op typically elect fellow residents to serve on the co-op board. That board is tasked with making a host of important decisions, including choosing who will and will not be allowed to join the cooperative. Co-op boards may require that applicants meet certain “nancial requirements. Unlike buying a single-family home, duplex, townhouse, or condominium, people interested in buying into a co-op may have put down no less than 20 percent the value of the apartment where they hope to live. Co-op dwellers will also be expected to pay monthly maintenance fees that go toward insurance, taxes and other building expenses.Did you know?

C8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 Making your bed doesnt feel quite so much like a chore when youve out“tted it in lovely linens and dreamy duvets. It takes more than pillow talk to design a beautiful boudoir. For a space that invites stylish slumber and cozy cocooning, think beyond the bed and consider the rest of the rooms furnishings. Bedside tables, ”ooring, lighting and artwork can make or break a restful retreat. Carefully chosen pieces, thoughtful design and little luxuries are the things designers dreams are made of.STYLISH SUPPORTThe bed is the star of the show, but dont sell the rest of the furnishings short. When considering the bedside table, Dallas designer Emily Johnston Larkin says form and function are equally important. The bedside table should be about the same height as the mattress,Ž she says, adding that 30 inches is the ideal height for both. And the nightstand should offer storage, whether that is one drawer, a shelf or both,Ž she says. And if youre short on space, chests as nightstands can substitute for a dresser. For those with bedrooms big enough to place furniture at the foot of the bed, a bench doesnt have to the only option. Think outside the box,Ž Larkin says. A desk, chaise lounge or settee are great alternate options.ŽLAYERED IN LUXURYA bed with loads of layers is just begging you to dive in. Richardson designer Tara Lenney often relies on a ”uffy white duvet for hotel-like luxury and starting point. She packs in personality with pillows, patterned linens and textured throws. You want just enough pillows for it to feel full and welcoming, but not so many that making your bed feels like a chore every morning,Ž says Lenney. For a king bed, that means three euro shams; for a full or queen, its two. Dont be afraid to change things up: Swap out bedding to better re”ect your personality „ or the season. Complete the layered look with a contrasting throw at the end of the bed. Consider something lightweight for summer and cozy, like faux-fur, in the winter. And one crucial layer that Lenney never forgets: the ”oor. Nobody wants to get out of bed on a cold morning and put their feet on an icy ”oor,Ž she says. Adding a rug adds warmth and can be another avenue to introduce pattern and texture. Be sure not to wimp out on the size,Ž she warns. For a king bed, youll likely need an 8-by-10 rug to keep it from feeling dwarfed by the bed.ŽFLUFFY AND FULLDallas designer Emily Sheehan Hewett has a no-fail formula for compositing a beautiful bed. Start with a crisp white sheet set and layer with a textured coverlet. Complete the look with duvet and a handful of decorative pillows, she says. Ever wonder how to get that ”uffyŽ duvet look at the foot of your bed? Stuff the duvet with two inserts instead of one,Ž the Well Dressed Home founder says.PATTERN PLAYWho says big, bold patterns dont have a place in the bedroom? Abbe Fenimore loves to make a serious style statement by mixing multiple prints. But when doing so, keep the main pieces of the room classic and simple,Ž she says. This keeps the room from being overpowered by the mixing and matching.Ž Mixing patterns isnt the only way to keep things interesting. Use a mix of cottons, velvets and silks to keep the textures from falling ”at,Ž Fenimore says.Bedrooms this stylish are sure to guarantee sweet dreamsBy JAMIE KNODELTRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE White walls? White furniture? White rugs? Why not? There was a time in home decor in which the color white was an ideal color for a formal living room. A white living room was typically a space that was seldom used and handled with great care. These days, color isnt always king, especially as people look to live in more minimalist environments. White is a color that is often ignored, but used purposefully and carefully can and should be embraced.DOMix different tints, tones and shades of white. Incorporate the color white into accessories such as vases, ”orals and toss pillows. Mix white with colors such as silver gray and taupe to help create a soothing environment.t Use textured white accessories such as area rugs and toss pillows to help to soften a space. Mix white with both warm and cool colors. White can be warm, like in a shade closer to taupe, or cool, such as a shade that has gray undertones. Whether blending with warm or cool colors, white helps create the ideal color balance.DONTForget to extend the color white into elements such as cabinetry, “xtures and appliances. Ignore the opportunity to re”ect color through the use of mirrors and windows. Be afraid to use the color white in areas that may be used often such as bedrooms or dining areas. Omit the use of negative space, such as white trims, door headers and under ceiling sof“ts. Dismiss the power of a pure white space. One of the most powerful color combinations is a monochromatic scheme, which involves a blend of similar shades of the same color.

C10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 One of the oldest materials in home design is now trending like a hot newcomer. Shelter magazines, design blogs and home renovation stores are featuring tile for surfacing ”oors and more: Designers are opting for a high-impact effect by cladding stair risers and entire rooms in tile, from interiors to the terrace. On Instagram, an account called I Have This Thing With Floors,Ž where people post pictures of their feet standing on cool ”oors, has over 840,000 followers. The appeal stems from an explosion of creative designs and new manufacturing techniques, producing everything from charmingly imperfect artisanal tiles to sleek, sexy slabs. If you can dream it, youre likely to “nd a tile that looks like it. Im loving patterned tiles with hand-painted designs,Ž says Los Angeles designer Amy Sklar Ive seen some really stunning ones that are truly like works of art.Ž Sklar also likes ethnic patterns that have been given a modern interpretation: A continuation of the lovely handcrafted trend weve been seeing, but realized with brighter colors. Were also seeing ”orals but in a more abstract way, and again with a stronger palette.Ž Joan Craig of Lichten Craig Architects in Manhattan has worked with some dramatic marble slabs recently. Over the past year, weve been selecting many of the vivid and highly “gured Italian marbles for walls, ”oors and tubs,Ž she says, including a gray and white marble called Capraia Arabescato with striking veining in the powder room, and a burgundy and cream marble in the bar.Ž Italian company Sicis has a collection they call Electric Marble, in which veins of vivid color are sandwiched between panels of glass. Mia Jung of the architecture and design “rm Ike Kligerman Barkley has 3-D tiles on her radar. I see more and more collections from Japan, Italy and other countries. At the simplest level, theyre used to add some texture to plain walls,Ž she says. A more elaborate arrangement of 3-D tiles can function as an architectural element like a wall-like screen between two rooms. One can even have an art piece constructed with 3-D tiles serving as a focal point of a space.Ž I think texture in ceramic tile right now is really exciting,Ž says Nigel Maynard, who tracks builder industry trends as editor in chief of Products magazine. There are so many ways the architecture and design community can use it, from “replaces to indoor and outdoor accent walls,Ž he says. And theres a lot to choose from, including subtle textures, fabric-inspired and deep-relief patterns.Ž Metallic detail, a hot commodity in fashion fabrics, is also adding ”air to tile „ anything from bold swaths to subtle accents. Walker Zangers Ellington collection, inspired by the Jazz Age and Art Deco, traces geometric outlines in gold on an ebony background. At Italys Cersaie tile fair last fall, architects and interior designers noted how far digital printing and manufacturing has advanced. It can create 3-D designs; scallops, hexagons and other unique shapes; realistic weathered wood looks; oxidized metal “nishes. Ceramica SantAgostino had a porcelain collection inspired by tailoring fabrics; digitally printed tweeds and plaids had not only a nubby look, but texture. Ceramiche Re“n showed a collection called Voyager, inspired by the aged and rusted metal bridges of Genoa, and the architectural elements of Victorian buildings. Here in the U.S., at Januarys Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando, Florida, New Ravenna debuted Sara Baldwins Ikat tile collection inspired by Uzbekistani textile leaf patterns and crafted of colorful jewel glass. For ceilings or walls, New Ravennas Astronomy, Michael and Orion patterns have dream-evoking starry patterns on light or dark background.

Sunday, May 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C11 Sometimes, moving the furniture around isnt enough. We need something new and inspiring „ something we can fall in love with. And, sometimes the latest color and style trends are the answer. Heres a room-by-room look at some of the most irresistible current trends „ and how you can incorporate them into your own home design.THE RECLAIMED LIVING ROOMThe living room is where people are showcasing reclaimed and natural materials. As our interiors „ and even our daily lives „ grow ever more modern, we want to maintain those grounding elements where we can. People are capturing this essence with live plants, artisanal focal pieces and natural textures like woven fabrics and grain-baring wood. Pieces like upcycled palette coffee tables and recovered and re“nished antique chairs bring warmth and character. And global elements like pillows and baskets add interest and balance to the space.THE MIXED-UP KITCHENDining rooms have fallen out of favor. Today, were seeing more eat-in islands and banquet seating in the kitchen. As our lives grow busier, were making space in the kitchen to talk, cook, and connect with one another. And were integrating charging stations into kitchen drawers to keep our devices charged and connected too. Kitchen aesthetics are trending toward mix-and-match colors and materials. Think light butcher block wood countertops paired with stark black cabinets. Or a navy blue wooden island paired with white modern cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The latest innovations in cabinetry and drawers are tucking appliances out of sight. And manufacturers are designing appliances to blend with your kitchen materials in a trend known as integrating appliances.THE PROGRAMMABLE BATHROOMIt may be hard to believe, but the toilet is one of the biggest bathroom trends this year. Installing high-ef“ciency toilets is a quick and easy way to make your home more ef“cient, and even to modernize your bathroom aesthetic. These toilets are sleek and minimal, and theyre available in a variety of styles „ including bidet. You can also “nd options that open and ”ush automatically. Toilets arent the only bathroom element thats gotten smarter. You can now program showers to your exact desired temperature, install a Bluetooth speaker anywhere in your bathroom, and even watch a small television screen on your vanity mirror! Design-wise, bathrooms are trending toward bolder tile selections, concrete features like overlay sinks and sleek black hardware.THE ENRICHED BEDROOMMoody, rich colors are having a moment in the bedroom. Navy blues, velvety purples and even pollen-like yellows can add depth and character „ whether theyre incorporated as furniture, accent walls, or lush pillows, linens and rugs. Decor choices, however, continue to trend toward minimalism. Were doing our best to leave our technology, our bills and our to-do lists at the bedroom door so we can truly unwind and refresh ourselves for another day. Plants are also showing up in our bedrooms, as they are in many other parts of the home. As art, pillows, prints and linens „ and especially as living succulents and leafy indoor trees „ plants are becoming an integral part of interior design. One “nal trend happening in the bedroom is the mixing of bold patterns. This trend could easily make a room look garish, but people are coming up with new and creative ways to make opposite patterns complement each other. Bold stripes are being propped against soft ”orals, and stark geometric patterns are being married with rough-hewn textures.

Pads still strapped to his legs after another spectacular nights work, the Vegas Golden Knights goalie looked as if he were trying to gather his thoughts, trying somehow to make sense of it all. The rest of the hockey world is, too, as the newly minted Knights play Sunday with the most improbable prize of all at stake „ a chance to go to the Stanley Cup Final. The story is well known by now, or at least it should be. But the fantasy has never been so close to reality as it is now, with the Knights up 3-1 going into Sundays game against the Jets in Winnipeg. An expansion team born last October on the heels of the Las Vegas massacre that took 58 lives is on the brink of winning it all, confounding both hockey experts and expert bookies alike. Even the guys on the other team are shaking their heads at what the hockey gods wrought. You know its just the stars are just aligning COMMENTARYKnights a win from Stanley Cup FinalAP PHOTOVegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury blocks a shot by Winnipeg Jets right wing Patrik Laine during the second period of Game 4, Friday, in Las Vegas. By DAVID CRARY and WAYNE PARRYAssociated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. „ For sports leagues and gambling industries, the imminent expansion of legalized sports betting promises a bonanza.

Thats not a word you ever want to use when describing an NFL player, much less the entire offensive line. That would be a tough pillow to swallow. But its clear George Warhop didnt like watching his men get pushed around last season, and the Bucs offensive line coach isnt going to let them forget it anytime soon. Last year, to be honest, I was disappointed in how we ran the ball,Ž Warhop said. The Bucs averaged 3.7 yards per carry, tied for 27th in the NFL. I was disappointed in our mental approach to how we were going to run the ball.

The roar from the crowd was delayed, hushed by the thick fog that enveloped the track. When Justify emerged from the haze in view of the grandstand, trainer Bob Baffert could see jockey Mike Smiths white silks and knew his horse had been pushed to his limit with 100 yards left to go. I knew he was in for a fight,Ž Baffert said. I knew this was not going to be easy.Ž It wasnt easy, but Justify had enough left to hold off several hard-charging challengers and win the Preakness on a sloppy, slippery track Saturday and keep alive the chance for a second Triple Crown champion in four years. After winning the most difficult race of his career, Justify has the chance at the Belmont Stakes in New York on June 9 to accomplish the same rare feat Bafferts American Pharoah did in 2015. Well see how he trains,Ž Baffert said. Right now, I dont see why not.ŽJustify wins PreaknessAP PHOTOJustify with Mike Smith atop wins the the 143rd Preakness Stakes horse race at Pimlico race course, yesterday, in Baltimore.

By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA, „ Cedric Paquette scored in the opening minute and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 shots to help the Tampa Bay Lightning hold off the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Saturday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final. Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan also scored as the home team won for the first time in the best-of-seven matchup, with the Lightning taking a 3-2 series lead and moving within one victory of advancing the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in four seasons. The Capitals, in the conference final for the first time in the Alex Ovechkin era, have lost three straight after winning twice on the road to begin the series. Ovechkin scored with 1:36 remaining, trimming what once was a threegoal lead to one, however Vasiliveskiy made three more saves down the stretch to finish the victory. Game 6 is Monday night in Washington, where Tampa Bay has already won to improve to 5-1 on the road this postseason. The Capitals won the first two games on the road, scoring 10 goals on Vezina Trophy finalist Vasilevskiy and sending the Lightning „ won had the best record in the East during the regular season „ into desperation mode. Tampa Bay responded by winning Game 3 in Washington, evening the series despite being outshot and outplayed for sizeable stretches of a 4-2 victory in Game 4 and returning home, where coach Jon Cooper was confident the Lightning would be better than they were in the first two games.

But it wasnt too long ago that some of the Rays were kids sitting in the stands watching the games, dreaming one day of getting that opportunity of being down on the field. The trip to Anaheim brought those memories back for five Rays who all grew up, and some still live, in the SoCal area and attended Angels games as kids. Here are a few of their stories:INF Daniel RobertsonAfter missing the chance last year since he was on the disabled list, Robertson was plenty motivated all winter to play in the stadium where he sat dozens of times a year with family and friends. He played some travel-ball games there, and once was in a group of kids who got to run out on the field for the national anthem, paired with Angels 1B Robb Quinlan, but this was different. In the offseason I drove by that field every day thinking one day this next season I might be playing there, he said. It definitely means a lot. One cool experience this week was using the visitors batting cage, where dugout-suite fans can watch, and he once met and got a photo with Josh Hamilton. A lot of memories for sure, he said.INF Matt Du yThough he spent parts of three seasons with the Giants, this was Duffys first official visit to Angel Stadium. His family had season tickets in Section 423, prime foul ball territoryŽ in Row 3 of the upper deck behind home, with a Jose Guillen-hit ball stashed away somewhere to show for it, and he once walked in a pregame youth league parade. My dad and I were talking about it the other night that with all the games we went to if somebody would have told him I would be here playing one day, he said he wouldnt have believed it, Duffy said.RHP Jake FariaWith his dad splitting Section 347 season tickets with another sheriffs deputy, Faria and older brother Matt came to 35-40 games a year as grade-schoolers, spending pregame chasing autographs, his most cherished possession a Vlad Guerrero-signed cap they still have. During high school, Faria would attend when he wasnt playing, including a datenight game with Jessica Soto that led to their first kiss, and now years later an upcoming wedding. MLB: RaysHow California dreamin became realit y Just getting through the Preakness was a test for the Kentucky Derby champion and heavy 2-5 favorite. When Smith looked over his shoulder early and saw Good Magic he thought, Oh man, its going to be a match race from this point on,Ž and Justify held up to the challenge down the backstretch and late as Bravazo and Tenfold chased him down. They tested his fitness today,Ž Smith said after his second Preakness win and first since 1993. This is his hardest race that hes had.Ž With Baffert praying for the wire at Pimlico, Justify won by a half-length after completing the race in 1:55.93. Bravazo edged Tenfold for third, and Good Magic was fourth. What I saw of it, I liked it a lot,Ž said veteran D. Wayne Lukas, who trains Bravazo. I want them to extend it another 50 yards. ... We ran at him. We kept him honest just like we said we would.Ž Good Magic pressed J ustif y so much, the Derb y runner-up faded near the end of the 1 ‡-mile race and fell out of the money for the first time in his career. It just wasnt a good trip,Ž Good Magic trainer Chad Brown said. I would have liked to see a different scenario, maybe where were just off the pace a little bit, we werent getting pressed on the fence the whole way. Disappointing.Ž That almost happened to Justify. Smith was worried when he saw Good Magic over his shoulder and when J ustif y sli pp ed earl y and he was hoping there was enough left to get to the wire. Baffert tied Lukas record with his 14th Triple Crown victory and matched 19th-century trainer R.W. Walden with his seventh Preakness title. Baffert also remained undefeated with Derby winners in the Preakness following Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah. Justify, who paid $2.80, $2.80 and $2.60 as the deserved favorite and improved to 5-0, showed more evidence of bein g the same kind of super horse as American Pharoah, and Baffert has repeatedly drawn comparisons between them. Those will only continue assuming Justify is good to go for the Belmont in three weeks. He has to come out of the race well, and hes got to be training really well,Ž Baffert said. I did the same thing with American Pharoah, all my horses that ran the Triple Crown, they have to be 100 percent.Ž Justify looked every bit of 100 percent after a bruised heel in the Derby caused q uite the firestorm. A bigger question now is how the lightly-raced colt who didnt run as a 2-year-old handles a mile and a half. Had the Preakness been just a tenth of a mile longer, Justify might have been caught, though Smith thought he had plenty of horse left. He withstood that, and even though he got tired today, he was also looking around a bit at the end,Ž Smith said. Although it was a half a length, I certainly couldve got after him a whole lot more a little earlier and made him do a little more, as well.ŽPREAKNESSFrom Page 1 just 19 seconds into the game. Palats second goal of the series made it 2-0. Tampa Bay extended the advantage to three goals when Callahan scored 33 seconds into the second period. Outshot 13-4 and limited to one scoring opportunity in the opening period, the Caps began to put some pressure on Vasilevskiy in the second. Evgeny Kuznetsov scored a goal in his fourth straight game, giving him a franchise single-year, playoffbest 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) and trimming Washingtons deficit to 3-1 at 4:21 of the period. The Capitals kept pressing in the third period, but didnt breakthrough against until Ovechkin scored his 11th goal this postseason. Notes: The road team won each of the first four games of a series for the sixth time in the last 10 years and 26th time in Stanley Cup playoffs history. Under that scenario, the road team has won Game 5 only three times. ... Paquettes goal was his first in the playoffs since Game 3 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, ending a 34-game drought for the 24-yearold center. ... At 19 seconds of the opening period, Palats goal was not the fastest to start a game in Lightning history. Adam Hall scored for Tampa Bay 13 seconds into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final against Boston in 2011. ... Capitals winger Andre Burakovsky was a game-time scratch.LIGHTNINGFrom Page 1 By TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ LeBron James had 27 points and 12 assists, Kevin Love added 14 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers looked like a different team on their home floor, tightening the Eastern Conference finals with a 116-86 victory in Game 3 over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night. Outplayed during two losses in Boston, the Cavs used a three-day break in the series to regroup and re-grip this series. They built a 19-point lead in the first quarter, pushed it to 30 in the second half and overpowered the Celtics, who fell to 1-5 on the road in the postseason. Any discussion of Clevelands demise is premature. Kyle Korver made four of the Cavs 17 3-pointers and Cleveland had six players in double figures. Game 4 is Monday night before the series returns to Boston. Jaylen Brown was in foul trouble all night and scored just 10 for the Celtics after averaging 23 in the first two games. Jayson Tatum scored 18 and Terry Rozier 13 for Boston. Only 19 of a possible 300 teams have ever overcome a 2-0 deficit in the playoffs. James and the Cavs, who previously did it in 2007 and again in 2016 while winning the NBA title, took the first step toward a third comeback. To return to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year, the Cavs have to win four of five and re-write Bostons illustrious history. The Celtics are 37-0 when they win the first two games in a series. That doesnt bother me,Ž Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said before Game 3. The games have to be played. They won two games on their home court, which we know theyve been playing well the whole playoffs, but were not discouraged. So, 0-2 doesnt really mean anything.Ž Apparently not. The Cavs came in wanting to play faster and be more physical with the younger Celtics, who were the aggressors in Games 1 and 2. Lue also needed more from point guard George Hill after two poor performances (8 points, 1 assist) in Boston. Hill responded with a driving layup to start the game and drained three 3-pointers in the first quarter as Cleveland wasted no time taking control. Hill finished with 13, J.R. Smith 11 and Clevelands supporting cast played so well that James only had to play 37 minutes. Boston coach Brad Stevens was confident his team would play better on the road than earlier in these playoffs, but the Celtics were shaky early, committing four turnovers and shooting 2 of 10 while the Cavs opened a 27-11 lead. James arrived at 5:45 p.m., greeted by the usual phalanx of cameras waiting to record his walk from the security entrance at Quicken Loans Arena to Clevelands locker room. Earlier in the day, James said the fact he has twice rallied from 2-0 deficits in the postseason offered no relief. Theres nothing about the playoffs thats comfortable until you either win it all or you lose and go into the summer,Ž he said.NBA: Cavaliers 116, Celtics 86LeBron, Cavs overpower CelticsAP PHOTOBoston Celtics Marcus Morris (13) goes for a rebound with Cleveland Cavaliers Jordan Clarkson (8), left, and LeBron James in the first half of Game 3, in Cleveland.


The Sun / Sunday, May 20, 2018 SP Page 3for them,Ž Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck said. But its not going to stay that way.Ž Maybe not, partly because hockey is a notoriously fickle game. But in this gambling town the odds are suddenly in the houses favor. With the hope they dont have to play at home again until the Stanley Cup Final, the Knights trotted out some old Vegas mojo Friday night with Wayne Newton and the Blue Man Group making appearances to root the team on. The Backstreet Boys were there and rapper Lil Jon took the microphone to lead the cheers just before Reilly Smith punched in the go-ahead goal in the third period. And, of course, this being Las Vegas the guy doing the anthems was a singing gondolier whose day job is serenading tourists in the faux canals of Venice just across the street. Theres nothing fake about this team now one win from one of most improbable runs ever. Once 500-1 longshots to win the Stanley Cup in their first year, the Knights are now favored „ at least in the sports books „ to win it all. Its enough to make even Bark-Andre Fleury „ the lovable canine and goalie namesake who is now the unofficial team mascot „ to sit up and take notice. Its nice, but the last one is always the toughest to get,Ž the human Fleury said. I think we have to keep the same mind set and just go and take it one game at a time and not think too far ahead and be ready to play that next game because they are going to be coming hard.Ž That mentality has worked well for a team that began the season as an afterthought, a collection of unwanted players from other teams thrown together in hopes of winning a respectable number of games in their first year.KNIGHTSFrom Page 1 Associated PressHAMILTON, Ontario „ Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is heading to the Canadian Football League, looking to salvage his football career after a turbulent and unsuccessful stay with the Cleveland Browns. The quarterback signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and appeared at a news conference Saturday, ending months of speculation on his possible path back to the game. Made the decision today to sign my contract with the CFL and further my football career after a long break,Ž Manziel wrote on Twitter earlier in the day. Very grateful for everyone thats been supporting me along the way. I believe this is the best opportunity for me moving forward and Im eager for what the future holds.Ž His last game came at the end of the 2015 season. He now comes to a team coached by June Jones, a former NFL and college coach. Players report to training camp this weekend. In 2016, a domestic assault charge against Manziel in Dallas was dismissed after he took an anger management course and participated in the NFLs substance-abuse program. In a recent interview, he said hes been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has stopped drinking. The CFL has a policy on violence against women. The league said in a statement that in December it began a process to determine if Manziel could join the league. Manziel had to meet certain conditions, including an assessment by an independent expert on domestic violence, a review by legal counsel and a discussion with Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. The league said it informed Manziel and the Tiger-Cats it would approve his signing. He must, however, continue to meet the specified conditions to maintain his eligibility.Ž Manziel was drafted out of Texas A&M by the Browns in the first round in 2014. He threw as many interceptions (seven) as touchdown passes during his two seasons.FOOTBALL: CFLJohnny Manziel signs with CFL in path back to footballManziel By JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. „ One good beating per series is plenty for Draymond Green and Golden State. The Warriors got it in Game 2 at Houston, and now the defending champions plan to do what they seem to do best: bounce back with brilliance. As the Western Conference finals showdown shifts to Oracle Arena for Sundays Game 3, tied at one game apiece, the Warriors have spent the past few days discussing their Game 2 troubles and what theyre striving to do in order not to be dominated again. Its time to play. I think were at our best when we feel threatened,Ž Green said Saturday. Game 1 we felt threatened, we came out with a sense of urgency. Game 2 we maybe didnt feel as threatened and the sense of urgency wasnt there. I think youre allowed one of those a series. Weve had our one, now its time to lock in for the remainder of the series.Ž And for the Warriors that starts on the defensive end against Chris Paul, James Harden and Co., because when they get stops it allows Golden State to get going in transition and find open looks from 3-point range that werent there during a 127-105 Game 2 defeat Wednesday night at Houston. That was largely because the Rockets had ample time to set their defense following made baskets. Houston is making sure not to get too high from its impressive result. The Rockets lost Game 1, 119-106. Feels like Game 2 was a week ago now. Thats how it is in the playoffs,Ž Paul said. I heard somebody say when you lose a game in the playoffs, you feel like youre never going to win again, and when you win, you feel like youre never going to lose again. Weve done a great job all year staying even-keeled.ŽNBA: Western Conference Finals W arriors eager to get back on the court By W.G. RAMIREZAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ Just saying the Vegas Golden Knights are one win away from advancing to the Stanley Cup Final has a magical ring to it. But whats even more mystical is thinking the Knights are a mere five wins from hoisting Lord Stanleys Cup in its inaugural season. Five more wins, over a potential 10 games. And while this might be a first-year team writing a fantastical Hollywood screenplay nobody couldve scripted last summer when the roster was constructed, the NHL playoffs are nothing new to a core of characters in this cast. Everybody knows about three-time Stanley Cup champion Marc-Andre Fleury, a key figure during Pittsburghs reign the last two years, and 10-year veteran James Neal, who was with Nashville for last years run to the final against the Penguins. But between guys such as David Perron, Luca Sbisa, Deryk Engelland, Ryan Reaves, Reilly Smith, Cody Eakin and Tomas Tatar, the Golden Knights arent as new to the playoffs as people may believe. The players individual postseason pedigree could be part of the reason the team is one game from clinching the Western Conference. Another reason is the eagerness of Fleury and Neals co-stars in this feel-good story. We dont see ourselves as an expansion team for a long time now,Ž said Perron, a 13-year veteran who is playing in his seventh postseason. But at the same time, its always nice to keep proving people wrong and we know that even at this point, I dont feel like people believe well close it out. So, weve got to find a way.Ž Coach Gerard Gallant has shown he has confidence in all his players, as theyve all experienced pressure situations and performed well in all three round of the playoffs, including seven one-goal games. Not including Fleurys 129 career playoff games, or Neals 94, the players who skated in Friday nights 3-2 Game 4 victory now have a combined 489 games of postseason experience to their credit. Its not new for those guys, I dont think you get here if you dont use your hockey players,Ž Gallant said. Weve done it from Day One and theres no reason not to use them because everybody competes, everybody battles and everybodys a part of our team. Thats what we do. Guys work hard and compete hard and do your job and youll play. I feel comfortable putting most of our guys on the ice. Theres no issues there.Ž And thats because the Golden Knights have always done a good job of living in the moment, and not looking past each game. Erik Haula spent his first four seasons in Minnesota and went to the playoffs every year, but it didnt take long for him to realize he was with a special group of players. We got off to a great start, won two on the road (to open the season),Ž said Haula, who has three goals and four assists in the postseason. Right after that first home game, that was special. It was a special night for the whole community. Right there, I think we came together as a community, as a team. We never looked back. We just kept going.NHL: Western Conference FinalsVegas looks to continue fair y tale with conference titleAP PHOTOVegas Golden Knights left wing James Neal, left, celebrates the teams 3-2 win with Marc-Andre Fleury after Game 4 on Friday, in Las Vegas. By KAREL JANICEKAssociated PressCOPENHAGEN, Denmark „ Switzerland stunned title favorite Canada 3-2 to reach only its third final of the world ice hockey championship on Saturday. The Swiss will play the gold medal game on Sunday against defending champion Sweden, which strode into the final by crushing the United States 6-0. Canada and the U.S. will play for bronze. We obviously got motivated a lot playing them,Ž Switzerland defenseman Mirco Muller said. Theyre the best country in the world, hockey-wise, and they have a great team here. It was a great battle for us.Ž Canada goaltender Darcy Kuemper made some fine saves in the first period before Tristan Scherwey scored the go-ahead goal for Switzerland with 1:19 remaining in the first period. Bo Horvat tied it in the second but Switzerland proved resilient, and Gregory Hofmann restored the Swiss lead on a power play. Gaetan Haas struck again on a power play in the third, redirecting into the net a shot by Sven Andrighetto from the point. Colton Parayko blasted a slap shot past Swiss goaltender Leonardo Genoni to reduce the lead with 2:07 left in the final period as Canada pulled Kuemper for an extra attacker in vain. Switzerland played an unbelievable game,Ž Canada defenseman Aaron Ekblad said. From the drop of the puck they came at us hard in every facet.Ž Genoni stopped 43 shots. Its important that we win the last game,Ž Canada captain Connor McDavid said. Were up to do it.Ž Switzerlands best results have been runner-up in 1935 and 2013. Sweden is going for a third world title in six years, and 11th overall. Were the big underdogs (against Sweden),Ž Swiss forward Reto Schaeppi said. We have a chance if we play a really good game.Ž Sweden beat Switzerland 5-3 in the preliminary round. The Swedes set up their victory over the Americans with three goals in a 3:07 span midway through the second period. We didnt play our best game but we put up a lot of goals,Ž forward Patric Hornqvist said. We still have some improvement to do for the game tomorrow.Ž Viktor Arvidsson led Sweden with two goals and goalie Anders Nielsen made 41 saves for the shutout. Trailing 1-0 in the second, the U.S. had a four-minute power play but allowed a short-handed goal by Magnus Paajarvi, who scored on a rebound after goaltender Keith Kinkaid stopped Mikael Backlund on a breakaway. Hornqvist stretched the lead to 3-0 on a power play, and Sweden underlined its control when Mattias Janmark made it 4-0 just 11 seconds later. Arvidsson added his second into an empty net in the final period, and Adrian Kempe finished it off with the sixth. Sweden earned its ninth win from nine games in this championship. The U.S. pressured in the opening period, outshooting Sweden 16-8 and 41-19 overall. But it was the Swedes who went ahead. Arvidsson knocked in a loose puck in the crease following a shot from above the right circle by Filip Forsberg. U.S. captain Patrick Kane, the overall scoring leader, failed to register a point for the first time in the championship.WORLD ICE HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPSwiss stun Canada, Sweden crushes UShow we wanted to go about our business. And I thought that helped us. So we just had to shake it up a bit. It doesnt matter who plays. It really doesnt matter who is playing. Its just a matter of how you want to go about playing.Ž What exactly does Warhop mean by mental approach?Ž More finish,Ž Warhop said. More get on your guy. More sustained. Give our backs a better chance. So its just a little more grind.Ž Its actually a common theme this offseason. The Bucs rebuilt their defensive line for much the same reason. General manager Jason Licht has said he grew wearing of watching his team get pushed backward at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. So the Bucs did something about it. They added Ravens center Ryan Jensen, moving Ali Marpet from center to left guard. They also used a thirdround pick on Humboldt State offensive lineman Alex Cappa. Both players have a well-earned reputation to finishing blocks and playing well past the echo of the whistle. Listen, you can slice that any way you want about ƒ guys who chew glass and all that,Ž Warhop said. It comes down to this: youre either going to be competitive or youre not. Thats it. Theres all kinds of guys, whether you playing O-line, D-line, receiver, running back that play the game. It comes down to, Am I going to be a competitive guy or not? If youre not going to be competitive, youre not going to survive. ƒ So when were adding guys, were using the same criteria. One, can they play? Are they better than the guys we have? No. 2, can they compete with the guys we have? No. 3, they have the characteristics were looking for.

Page 6 SP Sunday, May 20, 2018 / The Sun 9001 Daniels Pkwy, Suite 202 Fort Myers, FL 33912Southwest Florida Medical 887-3602Individual results may vary. All rights reserved. The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatmentŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.Ž The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works: As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections. Paid AdvertisementSay Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction adno=50537076mobile phones. Theres particular alarm over the anticipated explosion of so-called in-game wageringŽ in which gamblers bet, often at a rapid pace, on play-byplay developments „ for example, will the next football play be a run or a pass. You lose track of time,Ž said Les Bernal, national director of Stop Predatory Gambling The goal of the operators is to get you into a zone where you lose your financial reasoning and think of nothing except betting.Ž Prior to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling this week, only four states were allowed to offer sports betting and only Nevada offered betting on single games. Now that the court has lifted those bans, there are expectations that most states will offer sports betting within a few years in a play to raise tax revenue. We think this is the biggest expansion of gambling in our nations history, in one fell swoop,Ž said Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling Absolutely, categorically, there will be more risk factors for addiction „ weve never had that much high-speed, highstakes interactive access to any sort of betting.Ž The council wants any company, sports league or government that benefits from sports betting to devote at least 1 percent of the revenue to fund programs preventing and treating compulsive gambling. It also wants betting operators to train staff about problem gambling, set and enforce a minimum age limit, and enable gamblers to set limits on how much time and money they spend betting. Whyte is skeptical that state lawmakers and the gambling industry „ even if they pay lip service to problem gambling „ will take sufficiently tough action.BETTINGFrom Page 1 By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ IndyCars marquee names turned a day of qualifying for the Greatest Spectacle in RacingŽ into a throwback, nail-biting, bumping affair. Helio Castroneves, seeking a redemptive record-tying fourth victory, was fastest around Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Danica Patrick was fast, too, and she averaged 227.610 mph to snag the ninth and final spot in the next round of qualifying, the Fast Nine. But this was a full field for the first time in years, and it meant two drivers werent making next Sundays show. Never did the renewed bumping expect to be a threat to James Hinchcliffe, one of IndyCars top drivers, a popular Canadian, and a celebrity from his stint as runnerup on ABCs Dancing With the StarsŽ show. Add in this is the final Indy 500 on ABC, ending a partnership that started in 1965 and is second in sports only to CBS and the Masters. The network has been a strong partner for tiny IndyCar, and it helped turn Hinchcliffe and Castroneves into crossover stars. And no one expected trouble for Pippa Mann, a perennial presence in the Indy 500. The British driver spends her entire year working to raise the money to run the Indy 500. Yet after a day of bumping, it was Hinchcliffe and Mann who were surprisingly sidelined. It was devastating in every way possible,Ž said Hinchcliffe, who is fifth in the IndyCar standings and a full-time series racer for an anchor team. We came here with big expectations and high hopes. We didnt have Fast Nine speed but we didnt think wed miss the race. Its Indy and we finally have bumping again and everyone was thrilled about it. Well, Im a lot less thrilled about it.Ž Hinchcliffe nearly lost his life at Indy in a 2015 crash in which he was pierced in an artery and would have bled to death if not for IndyCars standard-setting medical staff. He missed the race that year, but otherwise is a staple of the series. Mann is a one-off. Without her in the field, the Indy 500 will have just one woman, Patrick, at the time her return to American open wheels crown jewel event is being celebrated. Patrick is retiring after this Indy 500, her first since 2011 because of a brief and unsuccessful move to NASCAR. Back for the second leg of a farewell in The Danica DoubleŽ shes bookended Indy with the Daytona 500 on a two-race goodbye tour. Theres a chance IndyCar could intervene. The standard is 33 cars, but the Indy 500 is the only race that matters to the IndyCar elite and it had a 35 car field in 1997. So the hand-wringing could be real as purists wonder if Tony George, head of the family that owns all things-Indy, can force an exception to get Hinchcliffe and Mann in the field. Should they just start everyone? To me, Im definitely a traditionalist,Ž said Ed Carpenter, son of George and the owner of Patricks car. As tough as it is to watch a guy like Hinch, who has had great moments here, really tough moments, I feel for him, I feel for Pippa. Weve all worked very hard to be here. I really feel for them. At the same time, Indianapolis, thats part of the lure of what makes this race so special and important to all of us. Growing up around this event, seeing years where Team Penske struggled and missed the race, Bobby Rahal missed the race one year, its happened to great teams.ŽAUTO RACING: Indy 500Helio, Danica move on; Hinchcli e is bumpedAP PHOTODanica Patrick is hugged by Patrick Bourdais after she qualified for the IndyCar Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Saturday. By ANDREW DAMPFAP Sports WriterROME „ The latest installment in the rivalry between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic met expectations for one tight set. Then Nadal pulled away for a 7-6 (4), 6-3 win to reach the Italian Open final on Saturday. In their 51st meeting but first in more than a year, Nadals court coverage eventually proved too much to handle for Djokovic, who is still regaining his form from a persistent right elbow injury. That was a tough battle, a good level of tennis, a combination of good tactics and great shots from both of us,Ž said Nadal, who has had injury trouble of his own over the past year. Nadals opponent in Sundays final will be defending champion Alexander Zverev, who recovered from an early break in the second set to beat Marin Cilic 7-6 (13), 6-4. Zverev destroyed his racket near the end of the tiebreak in which he saved five set points. The German player is aiming for his third title in three weeks after lifting trophies in Munich and Madrid „ but he hasnt beaten Nadal in four tries. On this surface (Nadal) is almost unbeatable,Ž Zverev said. Ill have to play my best.Ž If Nadal wins his record-extending eighth Rome title, he will replace Roger Federer at No. 1. Federer is sitting out the clay season to prepare for Wimbledon. On the womens side, top-ranked Simona Halep rallied past threetime Rome champion Maria Sharapova 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 and will again face Elina Svitolina for the trophy. Svitolina comfortably defeated Anna Kontaveit 6-4, 6-3 in the other semifinal. In last years final, Svitolina came back to beat Halep after the Romanian rolled her ankle. I hope I dont get injured again,Ž Halep said. Its a great opportunity.ŽTENNIS: Italian OpenNadal beats Djokovic and will face ZverevBy SCHUYLER DIXONAP Sports WriterDALLAS „ The wind finally blew on the new Trinity Forest course at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Aaron Wise wasnt rattled, not even by a bogey that dropped him into a tie for the lead on the final hole Saturday. Now the 21-year-old PGA Tour rookie is ready for another run at his first victory. Wise shot a 3-under 68 to pull even with Marc Leishman, four shots ahead of Matt Jones and Kevin Na going into the final round. Its not the first time Wise has been in this position, though. Two weeks ago, he finished tied for second at the Wells Fargo Championship, two shots behind Jason Day. Besides, Wise has won at every level „ including the 2016 NCAA individual title while helping Oregon win the team championship just before turning pro. He was the first player in eight years to pull that NCAA double. Theres a little more pressure on it because theres more people and its a bigger scene, but I felt like I did a great job of handling all that at Quail Hollow,Ž Wise said. Being my second chance at it, I feel like its only going to be better than that.Ž Leishman shot 69 after setting a 36-hole tournament record previously shared by Tiger Woods. The 34-year-old Australian had a careerbest 61 in the opening round.PGA: AT&T Byron NelsonRookie Wise joins Leishman for lead By ROB HARRISAssociated PressLONDON „ Chelseas players saved their season but maybe not their manager. Collecting the FA Cup, after beating Manchester United 1-0 on Saturday, is looking like Antonio Contes final act with Chelsea. After two years, the club knows me very well,Ž Conte said. And if they continue to want to work with me they know I cant change. My way is always the same.Ž Having won three Serie A titles at Juventus before capturing the English Premier League trophy for Chelsea, Conte reminded the Chelsea hierarchy: Im a serial winner.Ž It was a bullish signoff to a lackluster season that saw the Italians relationship with Chelseas leadership become increasingly strained as the team went from champions to fifth in the Premier League. Our job is not simple,Ž Conte said. I understand that the club can make a decision.Ž Wembley matchwinner Eden Hazard also has a decision to make: Whether to pursue a transfer. After raising doubts about his Chelsea future ahead of the final „ demanding good playersŽ are signed in the offseason „ Hazard produced the only goal from the penalty spot in the 22nd minute. On the pitch, amid the celebrations, Hazard said nothing to demonstrate his commitment to the club. Im just happy,Ž Hazard said. You see the fans celebrating with the trophy. We didnt play a great season but at least we finished well.Ž Although not in the style craved by Hazard. If we want to win a lot of games we have to play better,Ž Hazard said, because today we played defensively.Ž Such was the focus on the gloomy Premier League campaign and looming offseason of uncertainty in the postmatch interviews, it was easy to forget Chelsea had just picked up a trophy.SOCCER: FA CupUncertainty shrouds Chelsea despite win


BUSINESS / CLASSIFIEDS / REAL ESTATESECTION D Sunday, May 20, 2018 South Beach style hits SebringSEBRING „Today will mark the grand opening of Sebrings latest business, the South Beach Beauty Academy under owner and instructor Dianna Hechavarria. A South American native, Hechavarria came to the U.S. at the age of 13. After some early bullying as a foreign speaking newcomer, she grew into a lovely young woman and worked her way into modeling and beauty pageants. It really helped my self esteem and I really enjoyed the business,Ž she said. But then I wanted to learn more about the other side of it. All the preparation, the makeup, nail care and everything that went into making me look the best that I could.Ž With plenty of training, Hechavarria attained her license in many different areas and worked as an instructor at beauty schools around the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale areas. I grew very passionate about it, helping others to reach their goals,Ž she said. And whats great is there are so many directions you can go after training like this. Whether you want to work in a salon, teach at beauty schools or even take what youve learned with make up and special effects and work at Disney.Ž After years of working for others, however, Hechavarria came to a point of wanting to make a go of it on her own. I thought it was time to go for it and start up my own academy,Ž she said. Ive been planning it and working toward it for a while, but trying to get it started in such competitive markets, not to mention expensive, like Miami, I knew it would take a lot of time and money to get established.Ž A look inland to Central Florida had Hechavarria discover Special to Highlands News-SunSenate backs effort to restore net neutrality rulesWASHINGTON „ Senate Democrats, joined by three Republicans, have pushed through a measure intended to revive Obama-era internet rules that ensured equal treatment for all web traf“c.

The judge on Wednesday granted CBS a temporary restraining order prohibiting National Amusements from taking any action to thwart a scheduled Thursday board vote on a dividend that would dilute National Amusements voting power from 80 percent to 17 percent. The judge said the order was only temporary and will rule Thursday on whether it should remain in effect.Footnote in Trump report lists Cohen paymentWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps disclosure that he reimbursed personal attorney Michael Cohen for up to $250,000 last year comes in a footnote to his “nancial disclosure report. No mention was made of a $130,000 paid to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about an alleged affair. A footnote says the president fully reimbursedŽ Cohen for Amelia Longo spent four years helping to build a web design “rm with values she believed in. She launched a fellowship to train underrepresented people in tech and developed ways to make the companys hiring process more inclusive. For a while, Longo, who had bounced around the arts nonpro“t and tech worlds since graduating from college, thought maybe she had “nally found her foreverŽ job. But then she realized something had changed. No matter how committed she was to the team and the company, she was unhappy working there. She wanted to do something else, something, shed half-joke, that would more directly help dismantle the racist capitalist ableist heteropatriarchy.Ž So she quit. She gave her boss three months notice, is working on “nding her replacement, and did it all without a job lined up, without much more than a plan to just, you know, “gure it out. And this was the second time in her 10-year career that she had left a job without anything in place. Declaring this quittingsans-new-job a bona “de trend is hard to prove „ there arent the numbers to back that up „ but at a time when employee burnout is at a high, more people are freelancing and working in nontraditional work environments, and companies are now built around the idea that everyone is always looking for the next job, its become common to see Looking for my next opportunity!Ž on LinkedIn, and certain corners of the professional world are changing their perspective on the once-taboo resum gap. You are probably rolling your eyes right now (What an exercise in privilege!). Or, you might be nodding your head (Girl, I feel you). You might be a tad envious (If only I could do that ƒ). Or, maybe you feel a mix of all three. This is, after all, not a thing everyone has the safety net to pull off. But before you hate, read the rest of this article, here is what the trend is not about: quitting on a whim. Although there will always be those who make impulse decisions, the people who are quitting without jobs are doing it in calculated, strategic moves due to emotionally and mentally exhausted states that they say prevent them from searching for other jobs. In a lot of ways, its an act of desperation. But its also a way to take back control. And it re”ects a now widely acceptable belief among young professionals that work shouldnt kill you, that it must be meaningful and ful“lling. Abby Mosconi, 34, started suffering from regular panic attacks at her ad agency of“ce and eventually quit. Having been socialized to get on the conveyor beltŽ „ go to school, get a realŽ job, retire „ it had taken almost 10 years to realize that wasnt the right path for her. Quitting, she says, was necessary to “guring out how to build a career that Rules? What rules?By JULIANA FELICIANO REYESPHILLY.COM Why these young people quit jobs without anything else lined upIts a good news-bad news situation for small businesses when interest rates rise. The Federal Reserve says that the economy is doing well, so it has raised its key rates recently and is expected to do so again in the near future. The strong economy is great for most businesses, but higher rates will likely increase what it costs for them to borrow. So whats a small business owner to do? Understand how the system operates and consider the ways they can manage. Here are a few basics to help:The good newsSmall businesses thrive when the economy is strong. Right now, the economy is doing quite well, which is why the Fed is comfortable raising rates. (One Fed of“cial even referred to it as a Goldilocks economy for being just right.) The Federal Reserve doesnt directly control the rates a business might pay on a credit card, line of credit or loan directly, but these rates tend to move in the same direction as the Feds benchmark rate. When the Fed raises its benchmark rate, it takes some time for that change to be re”ected in the borrowing that businesses do. Jared Hecht, co-founder and CEO of Fundera „ a marketplace for small business loans „ said he has yet to see rates for small business loans increase much, but he expects they will soon. Hecht also said that while the cost of borrowing may go up with rate increases, it often becomes a more competitive marketplace for lending as the higher rate makes it more attractive for banks to manage loans. The Fed last raised shortterm rates in March to a range of 1.5 to 1.75 percent. Another quarter-point increase is expected in June.The bad newsRising interest rates will likely increase costs for new small business loans, existing variable rate loans and credit cards. The exact rate a business will pay depends on the type of borrowing and their credit pro“le. It is typically prime rate, which is at 4.75, plus a few percentage points based on how favorable the lender “nds the borrower to be. But any way you slice it, a higher interest rate means higher costs that will eat into cash ”ow and pro“tability. Plus, short-term loans to cover cash gaps, often needed by small businesses, may get more expensive or dif“cult to acquire, said Barry Coleman, who helped develop the small business counseling program at the National Foundation for Credit Counseling While consumers may be feeling good in a strong economy and willing to pay for your goods and services, they eventually may feel pinched by rising rates and pull back on spending. Some businesses may also need to consider price increases to manage their increased expenses.What to doBusinesses have a few options in an environment of rising interest rates, experts say. The simplest of those is to How small businesses can navigate rising interest ratesBy SARAH SKIDMORE SELLTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS COURTESY PHOTODianna Hechavarria is the owner and instructor at South Beach Beauty Academy.STYLE | 5BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS HIGHLIGHTS | 5 RATES | 5 COURTESY PHOTRULES | 3


D2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 20, 2018 A comedy by Joseph KesselringJune 1-17, 2018 Featuring Tom & Sandy Doyle Prices starting at: Adult $18.00 Child $8.00 One Night Only!May 25, 2018 7:30 pm


Sunday, May 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D3 made her happy. Umm, can you really do that and not kill your career? asks parents everywhere. It depends. Tessa Dill, a recruiter with Uber, says taking time between jobs is so common in the tech world, especially for those working at Silicon Valley companies who often quit once their stock vests, that from a hiring perspective, a resum gap is no big deal. Jeanne Meister, a partner at HR advisory “rm Future Workplace, says shes noticed less of a stigma around being between jobs „ as long as you can explain the gap. Its often a marker of ambition, Meister said. That ambition „ and the impatience to see results „ is a quality of the millennial workforce, according to Northeastern University professor Alicia Modestino, who studies the youth labor market. Other generations played by the rules,Ž Modestino said. Not millennials. Thats in part shaped by the fact that all those rules went away.Ž Ah, the dreaded m-word. Its a loaded term that many associate with other words like irresponsible and entitled. And thats exactly how quitting without a job lined up could be perceived by other companies, said Mikal C. Harden, cofounder of Philly recruiting “rm Juno Search Partners. Not to mention, Harden added, that it would put you in a weaker negotiating position when you get that next job. (In the tech sector, Dill pointed out, established companies generally follow salary ranges for speci“c positions.) You also might not survive the break, Meister cautioned. Brand-name companies are stretching out the recruiting process, so if youre going to go down this route, you have to be aware that if you want your next dream job, it could easily take six months,Ž she said. Ashley Bernard, 27, who in March quit her marketing job at a digital agency because she didnt see a future for herself there, wasnt worried about her negotiating power for her next gig. In fact, it hadnt crossed her mind. Shed take a pay cut if she had to. What was more important was giving herself the time and space to “nd a job she was passionate about. Meanwhile, shes living off her savings. Although by de“nition millennial means you were born between 1981 and 1996, the term tends to conjure up white, college-educated, young professionals. And, for the most part, it is early-career people with degrees who are more likely to quit without anything lined up, Meister said. But other kinds of privileges allow people to take these leaps of faith: savings, freedom from “nancial responsibilities like taking care of a family, social capital, and con“dence in your skills and hireability. Longo talked about how, after the “rst time she quit without anything lined up, she went to an event at a local theater and got offered two jobs. It made her realize: I have a deep network. Im a talented person. Im going to land.Ž It also helped that she had gotten a settlement from a bike accident and that her parents live nearby, so if she ever really needed to, she could move in with them. Dave Labold, 31, a former teacher who twice quit without a job because he was so burned out it was affecting his work, survived with odd jobs offered by friends. His housemate, who owned their South Philly home, gave him a pass on rent when things were particularly hard. Then theres the matter of what your parents think, or rather, how honest theyll be about what they think. Bernard, whose mother is an immigrant from Haiti and longtime nurse, burst out laughing when asked about her parents reaction. She was like, But you dont have any money. I was like, I have my feelings and intuition! Ž Bernard said. Her mother eventually came around, but Bernard says she still feels a lot of “rst-generation American guilt,Ž knowing that shes in a position to do this because of the sacri“ces her parents made. Bernard is still early in her quitting process „ Ask me in a few weeks and my answers might be totally different,Ž she acknowledges „ but so far, shes felt good about her decision. Longo says, because she is someone who is always working at 100 percent, she has realized this kind of break is what she needs to “gure out her next steps. Mosconi has built a hybrid career for herself doing two things she always wanted to do but never thought she could make a living from: writing and singing. And Labold „ well, hes still not sure what he wants to do. The career he thought hed have by the time he hit his 30s „ being a social studies teacher „ never panned out. Hes working at a Trader Joes right now. But hes happy. Happier than he was. He says this whole process has forced him to rethink some of his assumptions. Life isnt really de“ned by your work,Ž he said. Im trying to “nd the other things.ŽRULESFROM PAGE 1 Q: I am in the process of getting a divorce. I want to buy a new house but am worried about my soon-tobe-ex-wife having an interest in it. Is there something I can do to protect myself? „ Alex A: There are steps you can take that differ depending on the state of your relationship with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse. If you are still getting along, you can sign an agreement regarding the property with her that is similar to a prenuptial agreement (called a postnuptial agreement) or make the arrangement part of your marital settlement agreement in the divorce case. Any concern would be regarding where the money you are using to buy the home came from. If it is from marital assets, it may be more dif“cult to draft an enforceable agreement. For this type of arrangement, it is essential to each have your own attorney approve the agreement. If your ex is not willing to cooperate and you are looking to purchase the property using non-marital funds, such as money you inherited or from investments you had long before the marriage, there are still some steps you can take to protect yourself. First, make sure you can document the source of all funds you are using to purchase the property. Then make sure the title company titles the home as your sole and separateŽ property. Finally, make sure to thoroughly disclose this asset as part of any “nancial disclosure during your divorce proceedings. This can be a thorny issue with lots of potential hazards, so make sure to coordinate with your real estate and divorce attorneys to avoid any pitfalls. Gary M.

SINGERSUN SENTINELNEW YORK (AP) „ April Oury started her physical therapy practice 14 years ago wanting to give all aspects of her business the same focus and attention to detail she gave patients „ even when it came to choosing paint colors or an internet provider. She wouldnt do it that way again. There was not enough time in the day or the workweek to put that kind of effort into every single thing,Ž says Oury, owner of eight Body Gears physical therapy centers in the Chicago area, San Diego and Clayton, Missouri. Probably every small business owner would handle some things differently the next time. Learning from experience is part of starting and running a business, and the list of things owners wish they could do over is likely endless. Oury gave up her drive for ultra-perfection when she realized it prevented her from getting things done. While she “xated on the details of a marketing brochure, I missed all those opportunities to pass out a brochure because I didnt have it in my hands.Ž What others would change if they had the chance:Whats in a name?Andy Curry came up with what he thought was a unique name, WallaZoom, for an app he created over a year ago to help shoppers “nd local retailers. When he went to trademark it four months ago, he learned it was in the process of being trademarked by someone else. He hadnt checked beforehand. I didnt think there would be a chance of anyone else using that name in the trademark category of advertising and marketing,Ž says Curry, whos located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He still hopes to get the name, but also has backups in case he cant. Levi Kings problem was a name no one could spell or pronounce. Six years ago, he and partner Caton Hanson founded Creditera, which helps businesses get loans and other credit. Soon after, the Draper, Utah-based company was being called names like Credit TiaraŽ and frequently misspelled. Something as important as a brand and we took so little time to check it out „ we should have run it by other people,Ž King says. Eventually, he and Hanson found another name, Nav, referring to how the company assists businesses navigating credit applications. Hope & Harmony Farms, a brand of peanuts, started out as Royal Oak Peanuts in 2002. Sales didnt take off the way co-owner Stephanie Pope and her partners hoped. When they did an informal survey, one close friend even said the name almost sounded like a cemetery,Ž she recalls. The Drewryville, Virginia, companys owners came up with Hope & Harmony Farms in 2012, and sales are up 50 percent since then.Selling themselves shortJill Caren charged her web design clients a ”at fee of $1,500 no matter how much work she did or how complex it was. She ended up working too many hours and not making enough money. I learned the hard way that low pricing is not the way to get quality business,Ž says Caren, owner of 2 Dogs Media, based in Marlboro, New Jersey. Her low prices tended to attract clients who were dif“cult and disrespectful. When she started charging based on what each job required, she got to spend more time with her family and got clients who appreciated her more. Yungi Chu thought hed sell more headsets and make more money by offering cheaper models and undercutting competitors. Six months after starting in 2003, he found he had very little pro“t: $2 a headset, and often just $100 a week. He decided to raise prices and sell wellknown brands. Sales picked up quickly. I found customers dont mind paying more for better service, better products,Ž says Chu, whos based in Redwood City, California.Taking few risksVladimir Gendelman worried about running out of money when he started his printing business in 2003. He had $50,000 in credit, but for “ve years he built Company Folders very slowly. Revenue was under $20,000 the “rst two years. It accelerated gradually and by 2008 reached $525,000. If I could do it all again, I would spend the money faster so that I could create a better baseline to generate revenue sooner,Ž says Gendelman, whose company is based in Pontiac, Michigan. This means everything from building my website faster to hiring my “rst employee, which is something I waited “ve years to do instead of making that hire right away.Ž Nick Glassett spent about half of 2017 in what he calls paralysis by analysis.Ž Glassett, who runs a website called Origin Leadership that aims to teach management skills, says he wasted time tinkering with details and second-guessing himself. It was scary to be trying something new, but I let that fear get to me,Ž says Glassett, who lives in New Orleans. When he “nally decided to get the site up and running, it had 150 daily visitors within two months.Who is your customer?BeenVeri“, which helps people carry out background checks, didnt do any market research or come up with a plan to target speci“c customers. Its marketing campaigns advertised the websites features, not how it could bene“t users. Over the “rst two years, it had barely any revenue, co-founder Ross Cohen says. You end up marketing this broad message and we found we were really talking to nobody,Ž says Cohen, whose company is based in New York. After BeenVeri“ began explaining how it could help users, the company went from annual revenue of a few hundred thousand dollars to $15 million in two years. When Logan Soya began marketing Aquicore, software that monitors buildings energy usage, he and his sales staff made their pitches to property managers and building engineers who said, Great, but I dont have the budget for this. I have to wait for next year,Ž Soya says. It took more than a year of these responses for Soya, whose company is based in Washington, D.C., to realize he should be selling to building owners who set the budgets. Once we understood the problem, it was not that heavy a lift,Ž he says.SMALL TALKBy JOYCE M.

The mining industry has a long history of abandoning contaminated sites and leaving taxpayers to foot the bill for cleanups. But EPA administrator Scott Pruitt agreed with the industrys contention that modern mining poses less risk for pollution.Trump says no folding in trade negotiations with ChinaWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump says there has been no foldingŽ in his trade negotiations with China, as he addresses his efforts to help a Chinese telecommunications company that violated U.S. sanctions. Trump said Wednesday on Twitter that Nothing has happened with ZTE except as it pertains to the larger trade deal.Ž Trump tweeted his support for ZTE earlier this week, putting the president at odds with the Commerce Departments decision to impose trade restrictions for violating U.S sanctions.Technology, retailers help drive rebound in US stocksNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks notched solid gains Wednesday, recouping some of the markets losses from a day earlier. Technology and health care companies drove much of the rebound, outweighing losses in safe-play stocks like utilities and real estate investment trusts. Small-company stocks fared better than the rest of the market. Macys led a rally among retailers after reporting surprisingly strong results, adding to the strong wave of corporate earnings in recent weeks „ The Associated PressHIGHLIGHTSFROM PAGE 1clean up your personal and business credit. Credit scores are a key factor for lenders when they decide whether to fund a small business. Make your payments on time, use credit only when absolutely necessary and keep your utilization low. The better the credit score, the better the rates. The next is to think big picture about your strategic plans. If there are expansions or major investments you need to make, consider the timing in relation to rates and the economy. Because rates are still relatively low, small businesses havent lost that opportunity to take advantage of low interest rates, especially as the economy is growing,Ž Coleman said. Coleman also noted that businesses have more options than ever on where to borrow, thanks in part to the growth of online “nancial “rms. And big banks „ those with assets over $10 billion „ currently have a record 52.5 percent approval rate, Coleman said. That compares with small banks, which are considered the go-to for small business loans, at around 49 percent. Additionally, if you have existing debt, try to form a relationship with your lender to help mitigate any bumps down the road, Hecht suggested. Compare various products and various lenders to “nd the best “t as well. Hecht said business owners can often make a borrowing decision too hastily, when taking time to research before they commit could save them money.RATESFROM PAGE 1 Highlands County where she saw great potential. Its a nice area and I see a big chance for this to grow and do really well,Ž she said. One of the other things we will do is having visits to abuse shelters and do makeup for them as an outreach and to give back.

Investing is full of uncertainties, as the gyrations of the past few months attest, and keeping costs low is one of the few things that investors have within their control. Plus, having low fees is a pretty good predictor of a funds future success, researchers say. Thats why its encouraging that a pair of recent reports show that investors paid less in expenses last year across their stock, bond and other types of funds. Funds dont send a bill outlining their managers salaries and other expenses. Instead, they carve their fees out of money already invested in the fund. Last year, the average stock mutual fund kept $59 of every $10,000 invested, down from $63 the year before, according to the Investment Company Institute, an industry trade group. The “gure has been dropping steadily for decades: In 1996, it was more than $100 of every $10,000 invested. Fees continue to come down, yet again,Ž said Sean Collins, chief economist at the Investment Company Institute. Across the board, youre seeing reductions. Theres a lot of competition.Ž Fees are dropping for mutual funds and exchange-traded funds that track indexes, which are already famous for being low-cost investments. But theyre also falling for actively managed funds, where teams of managers and analysts try to pick which stocks and bonds will do better than the rest of the market. Costs are dropping for both stock and bond funds, as well as for the target-date retirement funds that have become the default for many 401(k) plans. A big factor is how discriminate investors have become in choosing funds based on their fees. Consider actively managed U.S. stock funds, which generally have higher expenses because they employ teams of managers poring through cash-”ow statements in hopes of “nding winners. Investors yanked more than $270 billion out of these types of funds last year, continuing a yearslong trend. Investors have been turned off not only by their higher fees but also by the fact that most have failed to keep up with index funds over the long term. But one small subset of them was able to attract new dollars: the cheapest ones. The actively managed U.S. stock funds that ranked among the cheapest 5 percent for fees drew $3 billion, according to the Investment Company Institute. With dollars concentrating in just the lowest-cost funds, overall expenses paid are dropping. We always hear actively managed funds are bleeding cash, they cant compete with index funds,Ž said Shelly Antoniewicz, senior director of industry and “nancial analysis at the Investment Company Institute. But its “ercely competitive.Ž Even index funds, which already have low fees because they simply track the S&P 500 and other indexes, have seen their expenses drop. Here, as with actively managed funds, investors are very aware of costs. Of all the dollars that went into U.S. stock index funds last year, roughly half of the total went into those that rank in the cheapest 5 percent. Index funds are also bene“ting from their enormous popularity. As they absorb dollars leaving actively managed funds, their bulked-up size means they can spread their costs out over a larger base. That means each individual investor bears a proportionally smaller burden of the funds total costs. All the declines mean fund investors saved a total of $4 billion last year, according to a study by Morningstar. It was the biggest annual decline in fund expense ratios since Morningstar began tracking the statistic in 2000. Investors paid lower fund expenses in 2017 than ever before,Ž Morningstar senior analyst Patricia Oey wrote in her report. This fee decline is a big positive for investors because fees compound over time and diminish returns,Ž she said. The end result is a Lake Wobegon-scenario where most investors are in funds with below-average fees, according to Morningstar. It may be tempting to think funds with high fees will do better „ and some investors believe that you get what you pay for, so higher expenses should be an indicator of more skilled managers. But funds with high fees have to perform that much better just to match the performance of low-fee funds. Over time, that additional hurdle becomes even more challenging as compounded returns pile up on top of each other. Thats why researchers say funds with low fees are more likely to survive and tend to have better returns than their highfee competitors over the long run. So be proud of being cheap.OF MUTUAL INTERESTKeeping whats yours: Fund investing has never been cheaperBy STAN CHOETHE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAVE LIVES. GIVE BLOOD.
