News WireTeen, 16, dies in ATV accident Sunday 4 others seriously hurt; ages range from 16 to 20SEBRING „ A 16-yearold from Avon Park was killed in an ATV accident early Sunday morning while four others in the ATV with him remain in serious condition, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The accident happened at 2:45 a.m. on Grand Concourse and east of Mathes Road, in the Lake Josephine Drive area. Parker Wayne Williams was pronounced dead on the scene from his injuries after the ATV, being driven by Owen Louis Mack, 20, of Sebring, overturned several times, FHP said. Andrew John Massung, 19, of Lake Placid; Matthew Ryan Palmer, 17, of Sebring; and Dylan James Feickert, 17, of Avon Park were reported to be in serious condition. Mack was going eastbound on Grand Concourse approaching a right hand curve in the road and reportedly lost control of the Polaris GEM and traveled into the westbound lane, FHP said. Mack then overcorrected to the right, causing the ATV to overturn many times, FHP said. It came to a “nal rest on its left side, facing a northeasterly direction. All of the passengers were ejected from the ATV, authorities said. Mack, Massung, Palmer and Feickert were taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center. Mack was the only one wearing a seat belt, FHP said. Alcohol was not a factor, authorities added.

The nearly capacity audience rose to their feet in honor and attempted to catch a glimpse of their Lake Placid High School graduate from the Class of 2018. Principal Kevin Tunning welcomed the graduates, friends and family to this milestone event in their lives. The colors were presented by JROTC and an invocation by class Vice President Kendall Prescott kicked off the ceremony. Class President Emily Brouwer addressed her fellow graduates and the audience in a speech that was full of funny colloquialisms, hashtags and text-speak. Her speech could have been called #YOLO, or You Only Live Once.Ž Brouwer urged the class to go forward and make legacies that matter.

The following are items of political interest from the past week: PUTNAM: ITS OK TO SAY NO TO COLLEGERepublican Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam released his second television ad to coincide with a tour of the state to promote his top campaign priority if elected governor: strengthening vocational and technical education in middle and high schools. Putnam released his proposal Tuesday with stops in Tampa and Panama City, then his political committee released the statewide ad on Thursday. In it, he walks through a steel company as welding sparks ”y behind him and says, Liberal elites look down on people who work with their hands, pressuring too many kids into student loan debt, leaving them with degrees they cant use and bills they cant pay.Ž Putnam wants students who dont want fouryear degrees to be better prepared to enter the workforce when they graduate high school.

A2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 21, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com The following is excerpted from The Historian newsletter by Billy Cason and his memories of hog hunting at Fish Branch a wet area of cabbage hammock, palmettoes, rattlesnakes and moccasins about “ve to ten miles west of Cornwell or 10 miles south of Lorida on U.S. 98. To get there you could take a ride on the Seaboard Railroad. It would let you off at the Cornwell post of“ce where my Uncle Maurice Williams and Aunt Anna lived. Aunt Anna was the post mistress. Sometimes it would stop to let a passenger off or sometimes it was ”agged down to let a passenger board the train. Another way to get to Cornwell was by car or truck. This meant driving on a rutted dirt road. You could get bogged down in wet weather and stuck in dry weather. There were no hard roads south of DeSoto City going to Lorida and Cornwell. Getting groceries in Sebring was quite a ride there and back. My Grampa and Grandma, Willie and Ollie Williams, had a farm about “ve miles south of the Cornwell post of“ce on the Kissimmee River. Most of the farmers that raised hogs had some in that area. It was wild. No fences, no roads, only ruts made by the cars that stayed on the same path when hog hunting. It was wild country! Whenever we went to Fish Branch, Grampa Willie and Uncle Laurie, Martin, Maurice and others at different times would drive out in trucks. It was ten miles out or more to the woods, swamps and saw grass where the hogs roamed. Since horses were needed to round up the pigs, this was the job for my cousins and me and an uncle usually accompanied us. We started our ride very early in the dark of the morning about two hours before those in the trucks came out. They would go hog hunting and we would stay in the hammock all day long with the trucks. The hog hunting job was not easy! They would be gone all day riding the horses looking for hogs with the help of some good hog dogs. Well, how about the hard day that the cousins who had gotten up so early were having. What did we do all day? We played games, talked, explored cabbage hammocks, killed snakes, took naps and had “ghts (sometimes) but we enjoyed each others company. Usually we had plenty to eat. Ill never forget the time we were left without anything to eat. Someone suggested that since we had a pocketknife, we could cut down a cabbage palm and eat raw swamp cabbage. We took turns with the knife and “nally got one cut down. The one we got was tender, sweet cabbage. It was delicious! By the time we had “nally eaten and had some good long naps, Grampa and the uncles were back. Now for the long ride back with the cousins and one poor uncle who had the honor to lead us back. If you have never ridden a horse home after he has been in the woods all day and far from home, you know the trip isnt fun. The horse may be tired but he wants to get to the barn and eat so he wants to run all the way back. Thats no fun! Its a rough and bouncy ride all the way home. Finally we can see the lamps at Grampa and Grandma Willies house and we know it wont be long till we sit down (if were not too saddle sore) and have a delicious cracker supper!

The newspaper takes no responsibility for the content of these letters. Credit Volusia County Schools with searching for creative ways to comply with a state mandate regarding safety of“cers. But the solution ultimately lies in Tallahassee, where legislators should undo a well-meaning but hastily crafted and ”awed law. After the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that killed 17, the Legislature rushed to enact a number of measures to improve school safety. Included is a requirement that every K-12 school in the state have at least one armed security of“cer on campus „ in effect, more than doubling the current number serving. That has created a logistical and “nancial nightmare for local districts. It starts with the state appropriating $97.5 million to help districts hire more school resource of“cers, a woefully inadequate amount that is akin to using a Dustbuster to do the job of a Shop-Vac. From Volusia Countys perspective, it currently has SROs in 26 schools, but to meet the state mandate it must place of“cers in 45 more schools at a cost of $6.4 million. The state has provided $2 million toward that goal, leaving the district $4 million short „ money it says it doesnt have. District of“cials have approached the county about contributing $2 million of the funding de“cit. However, Sheriff Mike Chitwood says that even if the county coughs up the cash, his agency doesnt have the manpower to supply the of“cers „ he already has more than 40 vacant positions for regular law enforcement duties. Flagler County is facing a similar funding squeeze. One alternative is to participate in the states contested new guardian program, which was part of the school safety package passed in March. The Legislature earmarked $67 million for districts to spend training and certifying eligible school employees (although not full-time classroom teachers) to be armed on campus. That would be cheaper than hiring more deputies. However, few districts have chosen to accept the funding, and although Volusia County Schools has yet to of“cially make a decision, there has been no groundswell of support for the program from the public or School Board members. That should count for more than any “nancial reasons. So Superintendent Tom Russell has ventured outside the box, recently proposing that the district hire retired law enforcement, beach safety and correctional of“cers to work on campuses. They would have the professional training for the job (although some might have to become re-certi“ed on “rearms) and likely would be more affordable. Chitwood supports the idea and said he is willing to work with the district to make it happen. While its good to see such innovative thinking, theres still a question of whether there would be suf“cient numbers to comply with the state law in time. Complicating matters is that almost every other district in the state is facing the same problem, competing against each other to draw from the same limited resource. Even if money was not a factor, there simply arent enough current or former law enforcement personnel to “ll all the openings quickly. This was all foreseeable; indeed, school of“cials across Florida warned the Legislature this would happen. Lawmakers, under pressure to do somethingŽ in the wake of Parkland, went ahead with it anyway. Its not too late to “x this mess. Gov. Rick Scott should call for a special session of the Legislature, whereby legislators can choose to rescind the mandate on SROs or phase in the mandate over several years. Its not that local districts dont want to increase security in their schools. They just need the time and resources to do it. An editorial from The Daytona Beach News-Journal.Its not too lateThe 1966 baseball season was particularly memorable in St. Louis, and not just because the Cardinals moved to a new $25 million stadium, hosted the All-Star Game, and every few days sent ”ame-thrower Bob Gibson to the mound where he won 21 games and struck out 225 batters. That year the Cardinals created a unique promotional giveaway. It was beautiful, it was coveted, and it helped de“ne a marketing concept that has angered fans for over half a century. The Immortals Coin Set, as it was known, consisted of a 9-inch, red cardboard display, with slots for 12 gold-colored coins,Ž honoring local greats including Stan Musial, Dizzy Dean and Frankie Frisch. But heres the rub: Instead of distributing it to everyone attending a game, the Cardinals gave the set only to season ticket holders. The shortsighted marketing strategy of tempting many fans, but pleasing only some, continues today across the Major Leagues, where attendance is slipping and premiums, such as bobbleheads, often seem more attractive to fans than the action on the “eld. This season, for example, the Boston Red Sox are giving away prized bobbleheads on “ve dates to the “rst 10,000 people to arrive at Fenway Park. Trouble is, Fenway holds 37,755 people, meaning that at each bobblehead game there could be as many as 27,755 unhappy fans. The Yankees are also giving away bobbleheads on “ve dates, to the “rst 18,000 guests,Ž as the team calls its paying customers. But Yankee Stadium holds 54,251 people, leaving room for 36,251 soon-to-be-former guests. In Houston, where Minute Maid Park holds 41,168 people, the Astros limit most giveaways including the ”oppy summer hat,Ž the in“nity scarf,Ž the Astros gym bagŽ and four bobbleheads to only the “rst 10,000 who show up. Offering gifts to relatively few fans is really a ploy to bring customers to ballparks hours ahead of time in order to sell them food, beverages and, yes, other souvenirs. In San Francisco, the Giants are not only stingy with giveaways, they also have the audacity to offer a package of 24 free souvenirs to season ticket holders „ a $0 value „ for the bargain price of $260. A few teams, such as the Phillies, Marlins and Angels, give most promotional items to all fans who attend a game. But others seem to be pennywise and fan foolish. In Arizona, the Diamondbacks offered a Kids Bat & Ball Set to kick off this season „ but only to the “rst 5,000 youngsters. Baseballs marketing executives have been debating this for years, clearly coming to different strategic conclusions. Some work with simple math, weighing the cost of each item against projected revenue for the speci“c game; others see a bigger picture in creating fan loyalty. When former Yankees great Derek Jeter took over this year as the Marlins CEO, he promised a “rst classŽ experience, and followed up by announcing that giveaways will be available to all fans. Thats very much in the spirit of the guy who started all this, Bill Veeck, baseballs version of P.T. Barnum. Beginning in 1946, when he ran the Cleveland Indians, Veeck gave away everything from full-size bats to free hotdogs, free lobsters and free chocolate-covered ants. He even staged a Free Nylon Stocking Day.Ž Veecks antics often angered fellow owners, but he was a master at bringing fans to the ballpark and making them happy. Veeck even began the tradition of singing Take Me Out to the BallgameŽ in the seventh inning. Sadly, when it comes to todays promotions at the ballgame, many fans simply feel taken. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker. His book, Cautiously Optimistic,Ž is available at Amazon. com and CandidCamera. com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Baseball bobbles its giveaways Peter FuntGUEST COLUMN As the daughter of a former police chief, the senseless actions of May 6 have left me speechless, angry, and hurt. Not just for the family of Deputy William Gentry, but also his brothers and sisters in law enforcement. Those of us who have lived in Highlands County for several years have also felt the loss of Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Nick Sottile, who was shot by a motorist he pulled over on U.S. 27 just north of Lake Placid in 2007, as well as the loss of Capt. Bob Hoffman and Inspector Jim Rodgers, a retired lieutenant colonel from the Avon Park Air Force Range, when the two were killed in a plane crash while doing aerial surveillance of a robbery suspect in 1995. The loss of these “ne gentlemen have left a mark on the hearts of all of us. My daughter was just a baby when Rodgers and Hoffman were killed. Rodgers was more than the lieutenant colonel at the Air Force Range, he was a friend. He and his wife attended the baby shower for my daughter. He always had a smile to share with someone, and despite his rank, he was always ready and willing to help whoever he saw needed it. My children were with me in the newsroom the night of Sottiles shooting. Though they didnt fully understand the magnitude of what was going on, they have since recalled those hours of watching the newsroom in full action, driving by the memorial site and what it has all meant to them. It is sad that these kinds of events take place anywhere. As Cape Corals Gary Snow so eloquently said, our law enforcement of“cers deserve our respect. Their job is the scariest, but Id like to extend Snows sentiment to include all “rst responders. They all have dangerous jobs. My son sent me a text after Deputy Sheriff William Gentry returned to Highlands County last week. He said watching the two-mile long procession was harder than he expected. I dont know if its (be)cause I know Im going into the “rst responder line of duty and that could be me one day or the fact that I was standing side by side with a police academy cadet and feeling the stillness in the air as a community welcomed home a hero. I was “ghting back tears the whole time and still am even after leaving,Ž he texted me. I told him how I think of his dad anytime I hear of such tragedy. As a “rst responder, he too was in harms way many times. In fact, a home owner once shot at him and his partner as they tried to extinguish a structure “re. At another time, early in our marriage, another partner rolled their “re truck on the way to a call. Danger comes from all angles. Harm comes in many different ways. I told my son that I would now think of him each time I hear of a tragedy involving a “rst responder. His response: I will take it with pride on my shoulders that I will make a difference in someones life. Its like our instructor told us, the hours, sweat and tears we are putting into becoming an EMT will all be worth it if we can save just one life.Ž The conversation went on from there, bringing tears to my eyes on an already emotional day. The rest of the conversation is between mother and son, but is something I will always hold close to my heart. I was pretty impressed with the deep thoughts that came from my 21-year-old, but then he has always been a deep thinker and a wordsmith, knowing just the right thing to say and note. It will take time for Highlands County to heal from the loss of Gentry, just as did when we lost Sottile, Hopton and Rodgers. One thing for certain though, we will never forget the protection that they gave us, the service they brought and the honor they took to their graves. I cant say it enough. Thank you to all of my law enforcement friends … those who live within our county and those who are protecting communities elsewhere in the nation. And thanks also to our other “rst responders … the EMTs, paramedics, “re“ghters, nurses and doctors. Romona Washington is executive editor of the Highlands News-Sun.

Monday, May 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 www.highlandsnewssun.com infections, Leapfrog said. Cathy Albritton, Florida Hospital Heartlands director of Marketing and Creation Health, said all Heartland facilities „ Sebring, Lake Placid and Wauchula „ got AŽs this spring, as did all Florida Hospital facilities in the Tampabased West Florida Division. Choosing the best hospital depends on “nding out what hospital provides safe, high-quality care,Ž Albritton said, and encourages patients to use Leapfrog to shop. Leapfrog started rating hospitals in 2012. Albritton said that they do it twice a year, in the spring and fall, and look at 27 areas of patient and hospital safety. Florida Hospital Heartland got two CŽs, in 2012 and 2013, and a couple of BŽs, she said, but has had eight AŽs. Nearly half of all the hospitals in the United States voluntarily provide data for the survey, (but) not everyone does it,Ž Albritton said. We agreed to be transparent because we wanted to do everything to provide the highest quality care and safety. It all rolls back to whats best for our patient every time.Ž Phone calls and voice messages from the Highlands News-Sun for comment from HRMC staff were not returned as of press time. As of last fall, Leapfrog only got responses locally from Florida Hospital Heartland facilities, and ranked all of them highly. In cases where online sources allowed comparison, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center ranked slightly higher than Highlands Regional Medical Center, but still had ”aws. Florida Hospital facilities and HRMC are all fully-licensed and inspected facilities under the Agency for Health Care Administration. Governmental and private ranking services, Medicare.gov and Consumer Reports, respectively, compared the countys two big facilities last fall. Medicare. gov ranked both at the national average, except HRMC fell below average on safety of care and patient experience. Florida Hospital ranked above the national average on patient mortality compared to hospitals nationwide, but below average on ef“cient use of medical imaging. No data was available at that time on HRMC for ef“cient use of medical imaging. This years rankings, listed below, come speci“cally from Leapfrog. Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Florida Hospital Heartland had a low number of infections from Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or Clostridium dif“cile (C. diff) bacteria and low infections in urinary tracts or surgical sites after colon surgery. However, blood infections were high. Florida Hospital Heartland had none out of a 1,000, instances of a dangerous object left in a patients body. Also, the hospital saw dangerous blood clots with only 3.60 per 1,000 patients, abdominal cuts and tears in 0.83 of 1,000 and deaths from a serious, treatable surgery complication happen in 132.57 of every 1,000 patients. Bad ratings for Florida Hospital in surgery included 2.59 times per 1,000 people whose surgical stomach or abdomen wounds split open and the 0.44 per 1,000 people who experienced a collapsed lung. Florida Hospital Heartland also had good practices, Leapfrog said: Doctors order medications through a computer, both doctors and staff practice good communication with patients about medications and discharge procedures, staff members work together to prevent errors and they wash hands thoroughly. They had no incidents of bubbles in blood. However, they had a high incidence of bed sores and patient falls. Also, doctors, nurses and medical staff got full marks for effective leadership to prevent errors, having enough quali“ed nurses and having specially trained doctors caring for intensive-care patients. They, however, got marked off for poor communication between doctors and patients, nurses and patients and the time taken for staff to respond to a patients call for help. Florida Hospital Lake Placid The Lake Placid facility only had data on MRSA infections, but had few incidents there. Problems with surgery were the same as at the Heartland facility in Sebring. The Lake Placid facility also had high marks on all practices to prevent errors, and rated with the same safety problems as the parent facility in Sebring. Lake Placid doctors, nurses and medical staff also got the same marks as Sebring. Highlands Regional Medical Center (HRMC) HRMC rated with few infections of C. diff in urinary tracts or in surgical sites after colon surgery. However, no information was available on MRSA or blood infections. The hospital also had no cases of a dangerous object left in a patients body, saw dangerous blood clots with only 4.01 per 1,000 patients, abdominal cuts and tears in 0.86 of 1,000, and surgical stomach or abdomen wounds splitting open in 2.21 of 1,000 patients. HRMC also had no data on deaths from serious, treatable surgery complications. Bad surgery ratings were collapsed lungs in 0.42 per 1,000 patients and serious breathing problems for 13.31 of 1,000 patients. Practices to prevent errors were not well rated at HRMC, which scored only 20 out of 100 for use of a computer to order medications, 74 out of 100 for hospital staff explanations about medicines, and 87 out of 100 for discussion of hospital discharge orders. The hospital declined to report on hand washing procedures or how well staff worked to prevent errors. Likewise, HRMC failed to report on how well staff works together to track and reduce risks to patients. There were few bed sores or air bubbles in patients bloodstreams. However, HRMC had a high incidence of patient falls, Leapfrog stated. HRMCs rating for quality of doctors, nurses and staff had low marks for not enough intensive care-trained doctors and poor communication both between doctors and patients and between nurses and patients. Responsiveness to patients was at a medium level. HRMC had not given any report to Leapfrog on effective leadership to prevent errors or its efforts to have enough quali“ed nurses on staff. Lake Wales Medical Center (LWMC) Recently, Lake Wales Medical Center became the primary reception center for Highlands County residents committed for mental health help under the Baker Act. Owned by Community Health Systems „ the former operator of HRMC „ Lake Wales had no data on MRSA infections, according to Leapfrog. The hospital had few blood, urinary tract and colon surgical site infections, but rated high on C. diff infections. Surgically, Lake Wales had no cases of dangerous objects left in patients, 2.17 of 1,000 patients with surgical wounds splitting open, 3.67 of 1,000 patients with dangerous blood clots and 0.86 of 1,000 patients with cuts or tears in abdominal or pelvic surgery. However, Lake Wales had 0.42 of 1,000 patients with collapsed lungs, 18.52 of 1,000 with serious breathing problems and no data on deaths from treatable complications. With practices to prevent errors, Lake Wales failed to report on doctors using computers to order medications, hand washing and staff cooperation to prevent errors. The hospital got low marks otherwise on communication with patients about medicines and discharge procedures. In safety procedures, Lake Wales had few incidents of bed sores or air bubbles in blood streams. However, it had a higher than expected number of patient falls and no data reported on efforts to track and reduce risks to patients. As for quality of doctors, nurses and staff, Leapfrog gave Lake Wales poor marks in every category except for effective leadership and number of quali“ed nurses, because the hospital provided no data for those categories.

He said condo and townhouse prices have spiked to the point where developers will likely look at building another condominium tower in downtown at some point during the next two years as average sales prices continue increasing above $300 a square foot. Its been about a decade since the urban core saw a new condo tower, he added. The mid-point price for a single-family home in the core Orlando market during March was $249,900, which was up 6 percent from a year earlier. Prices for condominiums and townhouses were about half that amount and increased more than 19 percent during that time. Stress on buyers continues to mount in Central Florida with midpoint wages of $58,406 remaining roughly ”at for the previous yearlong period, while home prices have grown about 6 percent. Interest rates remained ”at from a year earlier and edged down slightly to 4.29 percent in March from February. In addition, the supply of listings has shrunk to near-record levels of 2.2months, which is down from a year and a month earlier. From a month earlier, the overall median price for all types of Orlando-area housing in March was largely ”at at $230,000 despite the downturn in supply. Sales were also relatively ”at from February. Orlandos housing market continues to be tugged by opposing factors, such as low inventory and high demand,Ž said association president Lou Nimkoff, of Brio Real Estate Services. The result is a wash for sales  Of the four counties in the Metro Orlando area, only Osceola showed an increase in year-over-year sales with 5.9 percent growth.

From Jerusalem, he was on Fox News criticizing the investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 election. He was back in Washington on Tuesday, and back on Fox News three more times in two days with Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Lou Dobbs. The theme each time was the Russia investigation. During his appearance with Carlson, DeSantis speculated that someone working on President Donald Trumps campaign could have been a spy for the FBI.

The ad began airing in several of the states media markets, but notably missing were a couple of the largest and most expensive „ Miami-Fort Lauderdale and the Tampa area. The ad is called New DirectionŽ and begins by attacking big sugars in”uence in Tallahassee. It shows a waiter approaching a man in a suit with a “ve-pound bag of sugar and asking, More sugar, sir?Ž The man replies, Yes, of course!Ž The waiter then pours the bag into an over”owing coffee cup as the man smiles in delight. King then stands across the room and says, Its the same old politics. Big sugar buys in”uence in Tallahassee and then pollutes our environment. Im Chris King, and I wont take a dime from them.

The Dr. Robert Fitzgerald Award is given to a female and male graduate who demonstrated loyalty, courtesy, honesty, respectfulness and leadership qualities, among others. These awards also went to Shattler and Smoak. Gino Mejias-Reinoso had the crowd in stitches as he gave the student address. He started off by showing the audience the speech he turned into the administration and proceeded to read from his realŽ speech. Mejias-Reinoso told the students they had already been through tough times as students and will be able to face the future with equal determination. He pointed out particularly hard classes and said, If we could get through that (class), we can get through anything.Ž The moment that took 13 years to reach culminated as the students walked across the stage to get their diplomas and a picture taken with Tunning. In a touching moment, after the diplomas were handed out, a JROTC member gave a cap, tassel and gown to the family of Alberto Cruz. Cruz would have graduated Saturday but passed away during his sophomore year. Teacher Vann Peeples led the tassel ceremony as the young men and women turned their tassels from right to left. Afterward, caps ”ew through the air. Amy McClellan spoke about the four years she spent as the class sponsor. She told the students they made her proud, laugh and cry. Perhaps it was especially hard to get through the speech because her own daughter was graduating in the class. McClellan said being the class sponsor was the most rewarding aspect of her 22 years of teaching. She urged them to care about others more than themselves and to remember that they were always One Dragon.Ž There was hardly a dry eye on stage or in the audience; she received a standing ovation.

It was later diagnosed as a tire sensor pressure failure. The device broke off the car and rattled around in the tire rim. Disappointment doesnt even do what just happened justice,Ž Taylor Kiel, an SPM team manager and Hinchcliffes race strategist, said in a somber Gasoline Alley garage. Well look at it, and well try to learn from it, obviously, and well try to “gure out what happened.

Ultimately, we were (screwed), but I think it helps when you have the backing of so many people.Ž Hinchcliffe was next in line when the “nal gun went off. He thought he had until 6 p.m., so he was surprised by the 5:50 p.m. signal that his day was done. Pippa Mann, who was also bumped from the “eld was on track when the gun went off, doing three laps then returning to the pits for new tires, fuel and minor adjustments and going back out with two minutes remaining on the clock, leading some to criticize her for using the remaining time when she didnt have the needed pace, but Hinchcliffe was quick to come to her defense. I havent been on the Internet, heard anything myself, but heard some stuff from other people,Ž he said. This is in no way Pippa Manns fault. This is our fault. If theres anybody out there that has anything bad to say about that, you dont know motorsports. Keep your mouth shut.Ž Hinchcliffes previous four-lap average of 224.784 mph proved too slow by little more than a hundredth of a second over 10 miles. James Davison, the 33rd-fastest quali“er, had four-lap average of 224.798 mph. Wow. Hinch is out,Ž said Team Penskes Simon Pagenaud, shaking his head while standing near the qualifying line as the gun went off. What happened?Ž While convinced his car had the speed to make the race, especially in cooler late-afternoon temperatures, Hinchcliffe was at a loss to explain how he didnt deliver after two rain delays compacted qualifying and set up the dramatic “nal hour. Its devastating in every way possible,Ž Hinchcliffe said, surrounded by media on pit road. Indy is a cruel mistress sometimes … the highest of highs, the lowest of lows. Everyone at SPM worked their tails off to get these cars ready. We have three cars in the show. Unfortunately, the fourth one didnt make it. Its crazy to be here after where we were two years ago.Ž Former teammate and close friend Ryan Hunter-Reay made his way toward the media scrum. If anyone knew this feeling, it was the Andretti Autosport driver. Seven years ago, HunterReay was bumped from this “eld by teammate Marco Andretti with 55 seconds remaining. Its the worst,Ž Hunter-Reay said. Its like what happened to us in 2011.

Hunter-Reay celebrated a series championship the next year and then triumphed in the 2014 Indianapolis 500. Were not the “rst big name, big car to go home in this race,Ž Hinchcliffe said. Thats Indy.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, May 21, 2018 Its a catch 22 if you are in pain and worried about opiates because then you will be switched to an NSAID drug like ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin, celecoxib or others. These medications are phenomenal for reducing in”ammation and relieving swelling and pain. The trouble is that they are strong drug muggers of folate, your natural vitamin B9 nutrient. That in and of itself is enough for you to consider supplementing with natural folate. A folate de“ciency compromises your ability to repair DNA, which can raise your risk for cancer. This can increase neuropathic nerve pain making you super uncomfortable in your own skin. Tingling, pins and needles, ant-bite sensation, hot water sensations and more can cause you mental and physical pain that is sometimes unimaginable. Painkillers in the NSAID category are known to negatively impact cardiovascular function, especially in middle-aged to older folks. This is in part due to the increase in homocysteine, which is due to the folate de“ciency. You need adequate amounts of folate to break down homocysteine, and the drug mugging (nutrient depletion) of folate causes a build up in homocysteine which should be perceived as acidŽ on your heart, blood vessels and brain. A build up of homocysteine, will create more sulfur in your gut that leads to a sulfur burpŽ which means you have a lot of belching and yet your digestive function tests are “ne. Homocysteine is toxic to your brain, its not just about heart disease. Its a dangerous poison to your brain and no amount of folic acid “xes it. In fact, folic acid, the synthetic form of folate can occupy the receptors on your cells, and cause less of the real deal (folate) to get on the cell receptor, and then into the cell. Homocysteine is a stunt-double for glutamate, which is an excitotoxin. You might think of MSG in the same way as you do glutamate. Symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, mood instability, dark depression, brain fog, brain zaps, migraines, ADHD, hypnic jerks and bone pain are all tell-tale signs of hyperhomocysteinemia. This means that your homocysteine is higher than 15 mol/L. It can be problematic for people in opiate and benzodiazepine withdrawal because the high homocysteine acts like an excitotoxin in the brain. You need to reduce homocysteine. Ive written a longer version of this article, and Ill email it to you if youd like it. Just sign up for my free newsletter, so I have you in my email database, and Ill send out to you on Tuesday. In the meantime, the following nutrients are critical to reducing homocysteine: Vitamin B2, B9, B12 and B6 as well as zinc, magnesium, choline and betaine. Youll want to eat less meat and more salads and green veggies. Greens are very high in natural folate (vitamin B9) which drives the methylation pathway, which breaks down homocysteine. The problem with meat is that its very high in methionine, an amino acid that results in more homocysteine. So let the side dish be meat, and the main dish be greens.

Even though people may be quick to toss out expired foods or even clean closets of ill-“tting clothing, few individuals exercise such diligence with their medicine cabinets. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the medicine expiration date is critical when determining if a product is safe to use and will work as intended. Medications past their expiration date may not be as strong as intended, and even their chemical composition may change, making them risky to keep around. Furthermore, keeping too many medications in a home „ particularly pain prescriptions „ can lead to misuse and abuse, as the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says that rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States have risen considerably in recent years. Some old medications, such as childrens cough and cold products, may no longer be recommended for certain ages. Having such medications in the house could prove harmful. Taking inventory and cleaning out medicine cabinets frees up space and creates a safe home environment. €Toss away any expired products, whether they are prescription or over-thecounter medicines. The best way to do so is to bring the medication to a pharmacy for disposal rather than throwing it in the garbage or ”ushing medicines down the toilet. €Discard any unmarked containers or pill foils that are not in their original packaging. €Test any medical devices, such as a nebulizer, blood pressure monitor and glucose testing equipment to ensure they are in working Clean out the medicine cabinetMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS COURTESY PHOTO/ MCCThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the medicine expiration date is critical when determining if a product is safe to use and will work as intended.MEDICINE | 8

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 21, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com First and foremost, everyone should have routine dilated eye examinations by a quali“ed eye care professional. Without dilation, it is very dif“cult, if not impossible, for the eye care professional to fully assess the entire visual system. While someone may have no problems seeing, they can have active pathology that may rob them of vision in the future. With a comprehensive dilated eye examination, your eye care provider will be able to provide you peace of mind as to whether your visual system is completely healthy. Another very important aspect of maintaining healthy vision is diet and exercise. Eating leafy green vegetables, “sh high in omega-3, and fruits help by reducing risks of diseases such as macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, and diabetes. Exercise is vitally important also. Keeping body weight and blood pressure under control helps maintain healthy eyes by reducing the potential for diabetes and hypertension. Wearing sunglasses will protect your eyes from ultraviolet light. Sunglasses need to be rated at least UV400. Ultraviolet light has been shown to contribute to cataract growth, macular degeneration, pterygium, and pingueculae. Children are very susceptible to the effects of ultraviolet light and should also wear sunglasses. A bonus to wearing sunglasses for all of usƒƒ. They minimize wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. Finally, with all the near work we do with computers, phones, and tablets, eye strain, headaches, and dry eye are drastically on the rise. It is recommended that the 20/20/20 rule be considered when doing such tasks. This rule states that for every 20 minutes of near work done, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This allows us to change our focus which is helpful in reducing the chronic strain encountered during protracted near tasks. Using non-preserved arti“cial tears can help with discomfort from dryness and allow for clearer for comfortable vision while doing near tasks. All in all, routinely having a dilated eye examination by a quali“ed eye care professional is the best approach to having healthy vision. Our physicians at Eye Specialists of Mid Florida are able to help you with any eye problems that you may have concerns with. Dr. Stuart Harrell is board certi“ed in the State of Florida. In 2018, he was recognized by the National Keratoconus Foundation as a Top Doctor. What to do for healthy visionSTUART HARRELLGUEST COLUMNIST COURTESY PHOTO/ MCCIt is recommended that the 20/20/20 rule be considered when using electronic devices. This rule states that for every 20 minutes of near work done, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This allows us to change our focus which is helpful in reducing the chronic strain encountered during protracted near tasks. Everyday when “tting hearing aids it comes up... My voice sounds funny.Ž Everyone describes it differently, maybe it is tinny. Perhaps brassy or harsh. Sometimes their voice is described as really deep. It sounds like I am hearing over something metallic.Ž Sometimes its a combination. Today it was tinny and reverberating. Why or why does your voice sound so different? When people speak to us, we hear them through our ears. Sound is pressure... the sound waves travel and their voices enter our ear canals, then they vibrate the ear drum sending signals to our brains. However, when we talk it works a little differently. When a person has a hearing loss, not only do they not hear the people speaking to them properly, they also do not hear their own voice as it actually sounds. They do not hear the full attenuation of sounds. Think about it. If sounds are not as clear or crisp because you have a hearing loss, speech wont be either. As you speak, your voice goes out into the air and then the ears pick up the signal and it gets processed just like others that are speaking to you. However, there is something else also happening. When you are speaking, your vocal chords and your airways are also vibrating and sending information to the brain. So now your brain has to process sound from two very different sources. When you are “t with hearing aids not only are we improving and increasing sound pressureŽ but we are also putting some type of device in your ear that will react with the modulation of your vocal chords. With or without hearing aids we NEVER sound the same to ourselves as we do to others. A fun little exercise; Call yourself and leave yourself a about a minute voice recording. Research shows that only 38 percent of people can actually identify themselves! When you listen to the recording you will hear your voice as others actually hear you. You will be hearing your voice externally without the internal vibrations of your vocal chords. I know personally. I feel like my voice is lower-pitched. Yet, when I listen to a recording I sound like Donald Duck! Oh MY!! I cant wait to try and “t myself with hearing aids. LOL. It will take your brain a few weeks to get used to your prescription. Your hearing loss is speci“c to you and so if your voice. Sometimes it is necessary to weanŽ you in to the sound of your voice. No worries though... because, fortunately, the advanced hearing aid technology available today makes it possible to “ne tune and make our voices pleasant and pleasing to the hearing aid wearer. Remember if you are over the age of 50 you should have a hearing test. May Is Better Hearing and Speech month so make an appointment today. If you have a hearing loss, the sooner you correct the problem the easier it is to get used to your voice. #To Hear Better Is To Live Better! Roseann B.

Monday, May 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 www.highlandsnewssun.com Living each day to the fullest is a journey that brings joy and pain. A leaf falls from the tree and returns to Mother Earth to nourish it as it regenerates the soil. Whatever life presents is preparation for a cycle of regeneration. As we move through tragedy, we have an opportunity to awaken growth and renew love as we overcome sadness. The beautiful tree dies and life renews itself. Humans suffer loss, grieve and gradually recover to make a new contribution to life each day. When we experience loss, yoga can help us relieve and let go of pain through silent meditation by just closing the eyes, sitting calmly, breathing and letting go. Remember the good times, preserve the beautiful moments, the laughter and the sadness and slowly let go, to move forward. Each day brings a new awareness as we grow stronger emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. Silent meditation provides a pathway of renewal like an artesian well ”owing upwards from within and opening our eyes to a new day. When we acknowledge our sadness and loss, we capture renewed energy and awareness as we gradually rediscover a new life and create opportunities to give back to lifes fullness. Each day holds the promise of our future. We begin to feel a fresh consciousness in our surrounding as a new, full life is revealed to us from within. Immerse yourself in beauty. Discover peace in solitude. As you sit with eyes closed, let go of all thoughts and just deeply breathe. Discover your inner peace and carry it with you into the world. Let go of the past to discover the seeds of renewal. It is time to plant those seeds, nurture them and contribute to their strength. Thank those along lifes pathway that have provided support and comfort through tragedy. Contribute your talent in life to rebuild, as you discover beauty in each moment for all those in your world to share. Namaste.Yoga meditation: Overcoming griefYOGA FOR LIFENANCY DALE COURTESY PHOTOYoga teacher Nancy Dale shows the extended right angleŽ pose. Men and women who suspect they might be exhibiting symptoms of Parkinsons disease should speak with a medical professional immediately. Despite affecting roughly 10 million people worldwide, Parkinsons disease, a neurodegenerative disorder, remains a mystery to many people. To people outside of the medical “eld with no personal or family history of Parkinsons, the disease may only ring a bell because of some notable names attached to it. The late Muhammad Ali and actor Michael J. Fox are two household names that made their Parkinsons diagnoses public. But even those who study Parkinsons for a living do not know everything about this puzzling disease. According to the Parkinsons Foundation, the cause of Parkinsons disease is largely unknown. While theres no cure for the disease, various treatment options can help those diagnosed with the disease live as normal and productive a life as possible. The PF notes that understanding the disease and its progression is the “rst step to living well. Though the foundation also notes that people “rst start experiencing symptoms later in the course of the disease, learning to recognize some early symptoms may compel people to seek treatment. €Tremor: Many people might experience shaking after a vigorous workout or when they are dealing with stress or injury. But the PF notes that a tremor in a “nger, thumb, hand, or chin while at rest is a common early sign of Parkinsons disease. €Small handwriting: Handwriting can change as people age, especially if they are experiencing stiffness in their hands or their vision is deteriorating. But micrographia, a disorder in which handwriting becomes abnormally small and cramped, is another early indicator of Parkinsons disease. €Loss of smell: The PF advises people who are having trouble smelling foods such as bananas, dill pickles or licorice speak with their physicians about Parkinsons disease. Temporary loss of smell due to something like the common cold, congestion or the ”u is not an early indicator of Parkinsons. €Dif“culty sleeping: A signi“cant other may notice their partner moving suddenly during sleep, and such movements may be indicative of Parkinsons. The PF notes that periodic tossing and turning is normal, as is quick jerks of the body during initial sleep and in lighter stages of sleep are common and should not be mistaken for Parkinsons. €Stiffness: Stiffness related to current or past injuries or even arthritis is not indicative of Parkinsons. But stiffness in the arms, body and legs that is unrelated to injury or arthritis and does not go away with movement might be a sign of Parkinsons. The PF notes that people sometimes describe this symptom by saying their feet feel stuck to the floor when they try to move. €Constipation: People who strain to move their bowels might be showing an early sign of Parkinsons. However, various factors, such as dehydration and a diet without adequate fiber, can cause constipation. In addition, men and women on medication may want to look into side effects of their medications to determine if their medicine, and not Parkinsons, is the cause of their difficulty moving their bowels. These are just a few potential early indicators of Parkinsons disease. Information about additional symptoms is available at www. parkinson.org.

If you are a night owl, your natural circadian rhythm is primed to make you feel more alive when the sun goes down. Your eyes shine brighter, your mind feels more alert. The whole world seems to hum. The bad news is that not being an early bird may be bad for your health, from weight gain to premature death. As Time notes, being a night owl has been linked to higher blood pressure. A 2013 study in the journal Chronobiology International reported that evening typesŽ were 30 percent more likely than morning typesŽ to have high blood pressure. Dr. Andrew Varga, professor of medicine, pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at Icahn School of Medicine and Mount Sinai Health System, says that lifestyle habits like unhealthy eating or lack of exercise may be part of the problem, Time reports. Staying up late means that you also may be getting up later. Unfortunately, that means you cant go for an early morning run or hit the gym before work. According to a 2014 research abstract in the journal Sleep, night owls have more trouble “nding time to exercise and maintaining a regular exercise schedule. They tend to be more sedentary as a result. As if all of that werent bad enough, it seems that you dont just miss the worm if youre not an early bird. You might also tend to overeat and get fat. When people go to bed late, theyre up living their lives „ and one of the things theyre often doing is eating,Ž Varga told Time. If your bedtime is 3 in the morning, youre probably eating around 11 p.m. or midnight, and thats been known to create problems with the way your body handles and metabolizes food.Ž Some health experts warn that eating after dark disrupts the bodys natural overnight fasting, which undercuts the ability to burn fat. Night owls also consume more calories per day than early birds, according to a 2011 study in the journal Obesity. That may have something to do with the fact that willpower decreases as a long day wears on. The scariest news of all is that night lovers face a higher risk of premature death. As Forbes notes, a large, observational study of roughly half a million participants from the UK Biobank Study, found that evening types have a 10 percent higher risk of premature death than larks. So that whole early to bed, early to rise thing may be true after all.Is being a night owl bad for you?By KAREN DSOUZATHE MERCURY NEWS (TNS) My injury isnt sex related.Ž I dont smoke that much.Ž These are the only medications I take.Ž Whether its out of embarrassment, fear of being judged or simple ignorance, plenty of patients lie to their doctors. What a patient believes to be a simple “b, however, could be downright dangerous to their health. Here are a few statements Long Island doctors wish their patients would stop saying in their of“ce. „ This is not a sex injury. Patients often lie about medical conditions or diagnoses that arise during private or embarrassing situations, especially anything sexually related,Ž said Dr. Sanjey Gupta, vice chairman of emergency medicine at LIJ Medical Center. When patients lie, even if we confront them, it is dif“cult to provide them the proper care or to help ensure them a safe discharge,Ž he said. These situations can be worse when an ailment was caused by abuse, Gupta says. In these cases, the patient may not only be misdiagnosed and mistreated, but also return to a dangerous environment. „ I dont take any supplements. Vitamins and supplements, which arent regulated by the FDA, can skew test results and impact a doctors diagnosis, according to Dr. Sunil Sood, chairman of pediatrics and an infectious disease specialist at Southside Hospital. Many herbal supplements or over-thecounter medications have active compounds that may interfere with the medications that we are attempting to prescribe,Ž said Gupta. „ Neither do my kids. While accounting for supplements is important for treating adults, the issue is particularly important when it comes to diagnoses for children. Parents are unwittingly hiding something from usŽ because they think its normal,Ž said Sood. They dont mention the vitamins, probiotics or supplements when they list the medications their children are taking.Ž In reality, none of these are necessary to give to children,Ž he said. „ I dont smoke very often. Patients dont just lie about smoking. They also underestimate how much they smoke, believing its not enough to cause their other health problems, according to Dr. Puneet Gandotra, director of clinical cardiology at Southside Hospital. They may not feel that their heart disease or peripheral arterial disease is due to their habit,Ž Gandotra said, noting that smoking is one of the leading causes of heart-related incidents. Patients may feel ashamed of their usage or do not want to discuss their habitŽ he said. It is imperative to know this information to diagnose and treat and prevent further events.Ž „ I dont have diabetes. Diabetes is a risk for complications from a surgical wound, and it could dictate which way you manage the patients recovery,Ž said Dr. Adam Bitterman, orthopedic surgeon at the Northwell Health Orthopedic Institute. This goes for any condition, whether its diabetes, cardiovascular disease or an ankle injury. All should be openly and fully disclosed,Ž he said. No piece of medical history is too trivial to mention.Ž „ I dont eat that much. People tend to underestimate food consumption. We all do,Ž said Christine Santori, a registered dietician and program manager for the Center for Weight Management at Syosset Hospital. Those who are trying to focus on their nutrition may disregard what they take in from smoothies, alcohol and other beverages, said Santori. They think it isnt important, but they may be missing those calories by just focusing on the food they eat.Ž „ Everything is “ne in the bathroom. Unless speci“cally asked, he said, many women can feel embarrassed about leaks, having to wear pads or change their clothes several times a day. They often also feel there is no safe treatment,Ž he said, particularly when it comes to the vaginal mesh, on which there is an abundance of false information. Women frequently say to me, I am not going to have that mesh surgery that is on TV all the time,  said Finamore. The truth is there are nonsurgical treatments as well as surgical treatment.ŽLies patients need to stop telling their doctorsBy HEATHER DOYLENEWSDAY(TNS) DREAMSTIME/ TNSThere are a few common lies that doctors often catch their patients telling.

(AP) „ First experts said eggs are bad for you, then they say its OK to eat them. Is red wine good for your heart or will it give you breast cancer? Should you eat your placenta? Con”icting research about diets is nothing new, but applying the question to whether new mothers should ingest their placenta is. A new study from Oregon State University says that if you want to eat the bloody one-pound organ that connects your developing fetus to your body, go right ahead. The study is especially notable because it con”icts with the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Doctors and scientists traced one newborns recurring strep infection to the mothers placenta. The mother, an Oregon woman, had sent her placenta to a company that cleans, slices and dehydrates placentas and turns them into about 115 to 200 gel capsules. However, the capsules still had traces of strep, which were then passed to the baby through breast milk. But the Oregon State and University of Nevada, Las Vegas researchers say that one case is not indicative of the overall risk of eating placenta. Our “ndings were surprising given the recent guidelines recommending against placenta consumption as well as the known risks of consuming uncooked or undercooked meat,Ž said the studys lead author, Daniel Benyshek, a professor of anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. These new “ndings give us little reason to caution against human maternal placentophagy out of fear of health risks to the baby.Ž They examined 23,000 birth records from a database of births led by midwives. The Midwives Alliance of North America Statistics Project tracks health outcomes for babies born primarily at home or in birthing centers. The researchers found that the one-third of women who ate their placenta had no worse health outcomes for the baby or themselves than the two-thirds who didnt. The study also provided new information about who is most likely to ingest placenta: college-educated women of color in the Western and Rocky Mountain states who are having their “rst baby. They likely chose to eat their placenta to ward off postpartum depression, a growing trend that has picked up steam as celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and January Jones did it. Tens of thousands of women a year in the U.S. eat their placentas now, according to an earlier study from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Its also become more popular in Europe and Australia. Proponents says it boosts breast milk production, increases energy, improves moods and helps women quickly recover from birth. However, no scienti“c study has been able to corroborate these results. Study co-author Melissa Cheyney, a licensed midwife, medical anthropologist and associate professor in Oregon State University, said this most recent study provides a jumping off point to look at those claims. The fact that so many new mothers are willing to engage in this practice speaks to the potentially debilitating nature of postpartum depression and the understandable desire to avoid it,Ž Cheyney said. She recommends that women who want to eat their placenta properly clean and prepare it. Doctors and midwives should discuss the full range of treatment options for postpartum depression with new mothers, she said.Study: Its OK to eat placenta after allBy MOLLY HARBARGERTHE OREGONIAN/ OREGONLIVE newstips@newssun.com Have YOU Heard AnyStories or News Tips You Would Like To Share?

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 21, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Micelles form when there is an ideal temperature in the medium. In the case of micellar water, this is the water itself and a certain concentration of electrolytes, referred to as the Critical Micelle Concentration. According to the beauty science resource Lab Muffin, a micelle is essentially a ball-shaped cluster of a bunch of surfactant molecules. Surfactants are the important ingredients in soaps, detergents, and shampoos. They help make oils and makeups soluble in water. What do micelles do? Micellar water has the viscosity of water and it looks like water. But when feeling micellar water, people can tell that it feels softer and has a different texture than water. The idea is that water-loving headŽ of the micelle will adhere to the water and cleansing cotton, while the oil-absorbing tailŽ of the micelles are attracted to dirt and oil and can draw out impurities in the skin. But micellar water is gentler than many surfactants used in cleansers, so it will work without irritation or drying out the skin. That is why it is often marketed as a facial wash, moisturizer and makeup remover all in one. Micellar water is not new. In fact, it has been around and used for more than 100 years, first gaining momentum in France, where it was designed to help Parisians deal with the harsh water in France. When new soaps and lotions were developed through the years, micellar water fell out of favor in different areas of the world. However, it recently has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity and is attracting many new fans. According to dermatologist and Simple brand skincare expert Dr. Debra Luftman, micellar water is safe for all skin types and is designed to be used without having to wash off the product afterward. It may not work well on waterproof mascara or other stubborn eye makeup, and people with oily skin may find it isnt thorough at removing all oil. Micelle tails can only hold on to so much grime; therefore, it may take a few fresh passes to get skin extra clean. Earlier incarnations of micellar water were only available in France, but manufacturers elsewhere have jumped on the craze. Micellar water can now be found in many retail shops as well as online. SKINFROM PAGE 1order. €Replenish commonly used items, such as fever reducers or headache medicines. Make sure there is a supply of bandages and “rst aid equipment on hand at all times. €Relocate medical supplies to an area that isnt high in humidity, as steam from showers can speed up the expiration of medication. Storing medicines in the refrigerator wont help, as that is a high-humidity area, too. Checking medications and removing expired products from the house can prevent accidents related to medications and ensure that all medicines in the house are as effective as possible.

Monday, May 21, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9 www.highlandsnewssun.com NEW YORK (AP) „ Health of“cials say hotel pools and hot tubs are a major source of the stomach bugs people get from swimming. And theyre reminding people with diarrhea to stay out of pools, hot tubs and water playgrounds. U.S. public health of“cials report on safe swimming every year. Thursdays version from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focused on outbreaks in 2000 through 2014 that were tied to swimming or bathing in treated recreational water spots. In an average year, there were 15 such outbreaks and about 1,800 related illnesses. Overall, a third were tied to hotels. A parasite called cryptosporidium (kript-toespor-ID-ee-um) caused most of the outbreaks. It can survive normal chlorine levels, which is why people with such illnesses are urged to refrain from swimming.Officials: Stay out of the pool if you have diarrheaBy MIKE STOBBEAP MEDICAL WRITER CDC VIA APThis 1983 microscope image provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows Cryptosporidium parvum parasitic organisms in a stool smear specimen, the cause of a patients cryptosporidiosis.

The News Wire Monday, May 21, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER INVESTIGATORS GET FIRST LOOK FROM COHEN RAIDS ee page 8. PAHOA, Hawaii „ A volcano that is oozing, spewing and exploding on Hawaiis Big Island has gotten more hazardous in recent days, with rivers of molten rock pouring into the ocean Sunday and ”ying lava causing the “rst major injury. Kilauea volcano began erupting more than two weeks ago and has burned dozens of homes, forced thousands of people to ”ee and shot up plumes of steam from its summit that led of“cials to distribute face masks to protect against ash particles. Lava ”ows have picked up speed in past days, spattering molten rock that hit a man in the leg. He was outside his home Saturday in the remote, rural region affected by the volcano when the lava hit him on the shin, and shattered everything from there down on his leg,Ž Janet Snyder, Hawaii County mayors spokeswoman, told the Hawaii News Now TV station. Lava thats ”ying through the air from cracks in the Earth can weigh as much as a refrigerator and even small pieces can be deadly, of“cials said. The injury came the same day that lava began streaming across a highway and ”owing into the ocean. The phenomenon sends hydrochloric acid and steam with “ne glass particles into the air and can lead to lung damage and eye and skin irritation, another danger for residents as the plume can shift with the wind, Hawaii County Civil Defense said. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says sulfur dioxide emissions also have tripled. The highway has shut down in some spots, and residents in the area have been evacuated.Faster-moving lava gushes into sea, spews new dangerBy CALEB JONES and JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump said Sunday that he will demandŽ this week that the Justice Department open an investigation into whether the FBI in“ltrated his presidential campaign for political purposes and whether any demands or requests for such action originated with the Obama administration. Trump tweeted: I hereby demand, and will do so of“cially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ in“ltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes „ and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!Ž The Justice Department declined to comment. Trump has been promoting a theory circulating in conservative circles about a possible FBI spy on the campaign, though his attorney has cast doubt on it. Rudy Giuliani, who represents Trump in the ongoing special counsels investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, said in a television interview last week that neither he nor Trump knows for certain if there was a spy on the campaign. Giuliani said they had been told of some kind of in“ltration.Ž In any event, the Justice Departments internal watchdog is already examining Republican complaints of FBI misconduct in the early stages of the Russia investigation.Trump to demand DOJ review claims of FBI spy on campaignBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSSANTA FE, Texas „ Congregations in this deeply religious community near Houston gathered Sunday for their “rst services since a gunman blasted his way into the high school and killed 10 people, with one pastor lamenting the grief that none of us can comprehend.Ž Just two days after the deaths of eight students and two substitute teachers, the pastor of the Dayspring Church acknowledged the pain wracking Santa Fe, a town of 13,000. They will never be forgotten in this community, these young people, children just going to school,Ž said Brad Drake, who then read the names of the dead, including a slain student who attended services at Dayspring. We have families today that are grieving a grief that none of us can comprehend.Ž The family of the slain student, Angelique Ramirez, did not attend the service. She was a member of the churchs youth ministry, Drake said. She was a sweet young lady, had a style all of her own,Ž he recalled. She almost always had a new hairstyle.Ž Kelly Ward, who runs a ministry in Spring“eld, Missouri, and is a licensed counselor, took the stage to urge congregants not to hold in their emotions. How do we get through CARACAS, Venezuela „ Voting centers across Venezuelas capital appeared largely empty for Sundays presidential election despite assurances from government of“cials that millions had turned out to vote by midmorning. Opposition leaders said the lifeless voting centers were evidence that Venezuelans were heeding their call to abstain from voting in an election they contended was certain to be rigged in favor of socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Meanwhile, both Maduro and two anti-government candidates who broke with the oppositions push to boycott the election were urging voters to go to the polls. Were not going to let a minority decide the destiny of this country,Ž said Javier Bertucci, a television evangelist who was considered a longshot in the race. The main anti-Maduro candidate was considered to be Henri Falcon, a one-time socialist stalwart who broke with the president. While polls say Venezuelans overwhelmingly blame Maduro for the countrys severe economic troubles, he was heavily favored to win thanks to a boycott of the election by his main rivals amid huge distrust of the nations electoral council, which is controlled by government loyalists. Bertucci and Falcon both accused Venezuelas electoral authorities Sunday of allowing what they called blatant violations, including political sloganeering near voting centers. At numerous polling sites, socialist party supporters set up red tents nearby where they scanned government issued Fatherland CardsŽ that voters said they hoped would bring them a cash bonus or even a free apartment. Under Venezuelas electoral law, any political activities must take place at least 200 meters from voting centers.

The 83-year-old Abbas has endured a series of recent health scares which have revived anxiety over who will succeed him. A senior Abbas aide, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol, said the Palestinian leader was diagnosed with a fever on Sunday. Abbas had an ear operation last week, and returned to the hospital late Saturday for a follow-up. Saed Sarahneh, of Istishari Arab hospital, said late Sunday that all tests are normal and his condition is reassuring.Ž He did not elaborate. Another Palestinian of“cial, speaking anonymously because he was discussing the presidents health, said Abbas has pneumonia and is on a respirator and is receiving antibiotics intravenously. He said he is conscious and lucid. Abbas, who is a heavy smoker and overweight, has a long history of health issues, ranging from heart trouble to a bout with prostate cancer a decade ago. Two years ago, he underwent an emergency heart procedure after suffering exhaustion and chest pains. He suffers from arterial plaque and has had stents implanted. Abbas took over as a caretaker leader following the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in 2004, and was elected for what was supposed to be a “ve-year term the following year. He has remained in “rm control since then, refusing to designate a successor while a political split with rival Hamas prevented new elections. Palestinians have been split since the Islamic militant group seized Gaza in 2007 after winning legislative elections a year earlier, ousting forces of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas who now governs just parts of the West Bank. Repeated attempts at reconciliation have failed.Palestinian president hospitalized with feverBy IAN DEITCHASSOCIATED PRESS HAVANA „ At morgues and in church services, tearful Cubans on Sunday mourned loved ones who died in the countrys worst air disaster in three decades. Island authorities said they have identi“ed 20 bodies and recovered all human remains from the “eld next to Havanas international airport where a passenger jet crashed Friday, killing 110 people. Maidi Charchabal wept and held a photograph of her son Daniel Terrero, who would have turned 22 years old Sunday, as she waited at Havanas Institute of Legal Medicine for experts to complete their identi“cation of his body. We are here today so that, even if only in consolation, they hand over his body to us, so we can ... be able to be with him on his birthday,Ž Charchabal told The Associated Press. Cubas chief forensics of“cial, Jorge Gonzalez, said all families had been contacted and asked to provide blood and objects such as photographs and toothbrushes that could be used in identi“cations. He said the number of bodies recovered by authorities matches the tally of those on board, accounting for three Cuban women were the only survivors and who were hospitalized in serious condition, so it is believed none are unaccounted for. Gonzalez said many of the bodies were affected by the trauma of the crash, the ”ames and the heat, and the identi“cation process could take at least 30 days. The Boeing 737 belonging to a Mexican charter company and hired by Cuban state-run airline Cubana de Aviacion veered sharply shortly after takeoff from Havana on Friday afternoon and crashed in a “reball in a cassava “eld. Its destination had been the eastern Cuban city of Holguin. It was carrying 107 passengers „ mostly Cubans and also “ve foreigners „ and a six-person ”ight crew from Mexico. Some family members of the Mexican victims arrived in Cuba late Saturday to assist in the identi“cations. Also Sunday, evangelical churches held prayer services for 20 pastors „ 10 married couples „ from the Nazarene Church of Holguin who died while returning home after several days of a spiritual retreat in the capital. Cuba has declared two days of national mourning over the disaster, whose cause is under investigation.Cubans mourn plane crash dead, officials ID 20 bodiesBy ANDREA RODRIGUEZASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOMairy Charchabal holds a picture of her son Daniel Terrero Charchabal, 22, who was killed in Cubas worst aviation disaster, at the morgue where she waits for the identication of the bodies in Havana, Cuba, Sunday.25 African migrants come ashore in Brazil after sea rescue Greek police arrest 2 in mob beating of Thessalonikis mayorActivists occupy 9 vacant Berlin buildings in rent protestSAO PAULO (AP) „ Authorities say about two dozen African migrants have come ashore in northeastern Brazil after being rescued at sea by “shermen. The government of Maranhao state said Sunday the group of 25 people from Senegal, Nigeria, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Cape Verde landed Saturday. Two Brazilians were also among those rescued. The government said the 27 people were dehydrated and received medical care and meals. Federal police are looking into whether any crimes were committed against the group. That could mean there is suspicion they were exploited by people who smuggle migrants. The G1 news portal reported the migrants boat was adrift for weeks. Every year, tens of thousands of people from Africa and the Middle East try to reach Europe in smugglers boats. But such journeys to Brazil are rare. THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) „ Police in Greeces second-largest city say they have arrested two people as suspects in an attack that left the mayor of Thessaloniki hospitalized. About a dozen people set upon Mayor Yiannis Boutaris at a Saturday ceremony honoring Greek victims of purges by the Turks during World War I and the subsequent Greek-Turkish war. He was thrown to the ground and kicked all over his body. Ippokratio General Hospital director Vana Papachristodoulou says the 75-year-old Boutaris was admitted with a leg injury and bruises and in a state of shock, and discharged early Sunday. Police say one of the detained suspects is a 36 year old, the other age 20. They are looking for more suspects. The Greek government blamed the beating on extreme-right thugs.Ž Boutaris is reviled by extreme nationalists. BERLIN (AP) „ Berlin police say activists protesting rising rents and gentri“cation in the German capital have occupied nine vacant buildings. The DPA news agency reported Sunday that apartments in the trendy Kreuzberg, Neukoelln and Friedrichshain neighborhoods were among the buildings taken over. The protesters hung banners out windows and tweeted using the hashtag #besetzen, German for occupy.Ž Real estate prices and rents have skyrocketed in Berlin in recent years, creating affordability pressures that have been the subject of demonstrations for stricter rent control and more affordable housing. The building occupiers issued a statement saying they are staging a radical intervention against the principle of speculative vacancies.Ž It was not immediately clear how many activists were involved or how long they planned to stay the buildings. | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD PAUL ZINKEN/DPA VIA APA banner reading Occupied in front of a house in Berlin, Sunday.

The Sun /Monday, May 21, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 LOS ANGELES „ Deadpool and his foulmouthed crew of mis“ts and malcontents have taken down the Avengers. Foxs Deadpool 2Ž brought in $125 million this weekend, giving it the second-highest opening ever for an R-rated movie and ending the threeweek reign of Disneys Avengers: In“nity WarŽ at the top of the North American box of“ce, according to studio estimates Sunday. Deadpool 2,Ž with Ryan Reynolds returning as the title character and co-writing this time, fell somewhat short of the $130 million the studio predicted and the $132.4 million that its predecessor earned two years ago. Analysts and the studio said the difference can be attributed to the “rst “lm opening on a holiday weekend, and could easily be made up with Memorial Day coming, despite the looming competition from Solo: A Star Wars Story.Ž I think with a holiday on our second weekend well catch Deadpool if not exceed it,Ž said Chris Aronson, distribution chief for 20th Century Fox. The “lm grossed $176.3 million worldwide and opened better overseas than the “rst, especially “nding audiences in Latin America. The Avengers are hardly hurting. Disney and Marvels Avengers: In“nity WarŽ brought in an estimated $29 million in North America for a four-week take of $595 million domestically and $1.2 billion internationally. Its now the “fth highest grossing “lm of all time worldwide. In a whole different corner of the cinematic universe, Book ClubŽ was third with a $12.5 million weekend that exceeded expectations. It was a successful piece of counter-programming for Paramount, which used the modestly budgeted comedy starring Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton and Candice Bergen to “nd older audiences and women while Deadpool 2Ž dwelled overwhelmingly on young men. There are de“nitely audiences out there for whom superhero movies are not their cup of tea,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. Deadpool 2Ž follows the proudly foul formula of the “rst, mixing the usual superhero set pieces with gore, gross-out jokes, 80s power ballads and frequent fourth-wall violations. The box of“ce of the second “lm suggests that formula can become a long-term franchise, and builds its possibilities with the addition of antihero teammates from Marvel Comics for the title character, including Josh Brolins Cable and Zazie Beetzs Domino. The source material is so vast and rich that I dont think theres any question that it just opens the door for more,Ž Aronson said. Along with the earnings and acclaim for last years R-rated Logan,Ž Fox has made itself the early leader in the burgeoning subgenre. The R-rating may be restrictive in terms of the audience make-up, but its certainly not restrictive in the creative freedom it offers, so when movies like these hit, they can hit big,Ž Dergarabedian said. There is a place for the R rating. In the superhero genre it offers endless and really cool possibilities.Ž Deadpool 2Ž next faces off with Solo,Ž but the two “lms along with the still-earning AvengersŽ ought to make for a major Memorial Day for the industry. This marketplace is big enough for all these “lms,Ž Dergarabedian said.Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

NEW YORK (AP) „ Some inmates at New York Citys biggest jail got a taste of ancient Greece this weekend. A theater company went to Rikers Island on Saturday to perform skits from plays by Sophocles that deal with wounded, traumatized warriors and how they deal with other people off the battleground. It was a perfect “t for the New York audience behind bars „ about 20 military veterans living in a new jail unit where even the correction of“cers are veterans. Bryan Doerries, head of the Theater of War company that presented the Greek tragedies, then invited the imprisoned veterans to discuss their personal stories. The Department of Corrections Senior Deputy Commissioner Timothy Farrell says of“cials are trying to give these veterans charged with nonviolent crimes a sense of camaraderie.ŽODD NEWS Rikers Island inmates get a taste of ancient GreeceFROM PAGE ONEJoseph Kekedi, an orchid grower who lives and works about 3 miles from where lava is pouring into the sea, said luckily the ”ow didnt head his way. At one point, it was about a mile upslope from his property in the coastal community of Kapoho. He said residents cant do much but stay informed and be ready to get out of the way. Heres nature reminding us again whos boss,Ž Kekedi said. He is hosting a 90-yearold who evacuated from the Leilani Estates neighborhood, where lava started spewing May 3. He also was storing belongings for other friends who had to leave their homes. Kekedi said most of his neighbors are optimistic. He has friends who lost houses when lava smothered the town of Kalapana in the 1990s but they built again, found a good life and life went on.Ž Scientists say they dont know how long the eruption will last. The volcano has opened more than 20 vents, including four that have merged into one large crack. It has been gushing lava high into the sky and sending a river of molten rock toward the ocean at about 300 yards per hour. The ”ows accelerated after newer lava began emerging from the ground late last week. The fresher lava is hotter and tends to move faster than the older lava that was unleashed earlier. Scientists say the older lava is likely from magma that Kilauea has been storing underground since the volcano last erupted in 1955. The area affected by lava and ash is small compared with the Big Island, which is about 4,000 square miles. The volcano has spared most of the island and the rest of the Hawaiian chain. Of“cials have reminded tourists that ”ights, including on the Big Island, have not been affected. Even on the Big Island, most tourist activities are available and businesses are open.LAVAFROM PAGE 1Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced an investigation in March at the request of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and congressional Republicans. Sessions and the lawmakers had urged Horowitz to review whether FBI and Justice Department of“cials abused their surveillance powers by using information compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British spy, and paid for by Democrats as part of the basis to justify monitoring Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to Trump. Horowitz said his of“ce will look at those claims as well as communications between Steele and DOJ and FBI of“cials. Trump did not elaborate on the promised demand,Ž which he included in one of a series of tweets he sent throughout the day Sunday. On Saturday, Trump tweeted, If the FBI or DOJ was in“ltrating a campaign for the bene“t of another campaign, that is a really big deal.Ž He said only the release or review of documents the House Intelligence Committee is seeking from the Justice Department can give conclusive answers.Ž The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, called Trumps claim of an embedded spy nonsense.Ž His demand DOJ investigate something they know to be untrue is an abuse of power, and an effort to distract from his growing legal problems,Ž Schiff said on Twitter. Never mind that DOJ has warned that lives and alliances are at risk. He doesnt care.Ž The GOP-led House Intelligence Committee closed its Russian meddling probe last month, saying it found no evidence of collusion or coordination between Trumps campaign and Russia, which special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into. Schiff and other committee Democrats were furious and argued that Republicans had not subpoenaed many witnessed they considered essential to the committees work. Trump last week accused the Justice Department of trying to frame him by planting a spy in his 2016 campaign. Trump quoted Fox Business anchor David Asman and tweeted Friday: Apparently the DOJ put a Spy in the Trump Campaign. This has never been done before and by any means necessary, they are out to frame Donald Trump for crimes he didnt commit.Ž But when asked whether there was an informant on the campaign, Giuliani told CNN, I dont know for sure, nor does the president, if there really was one,Ž though he said they have long been told there was some kind of in“ltration.Ž Earlier this month, the National Review raised the question of a possible FBI spy in Trumps campaign. The article cites work by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California, an ardent Trump supporter and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who has demanded information on an FBI source in the Russia investigation. Opponents of Nunes request have stressed the need to protect intelligence sources and methods. The New York Times reported separately last week that at least one government informant met several times with Page and George Papadopoulos, another former foreign policy adviser on Trumps campaign. The Times reported, citing current and former FBI of“cials, that the informant talked to Page and Papadopoulos because they had suspicious contacts linked to Russia. Papadopoulos was charged last year in Muellers investigation and pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Sunday was not the “rst time that Trump accused his predecessor of politically motivated activity against him. Without substantiation, Trump tweeted in March 2017 that former President Barack Obama had conducted surveillance the previous October at Trump Tower, the New York skyscraper where Trump ran his campaign and transition and maintains a residence. Then-FBI Director James Comey later testi“ed to Congress that internal reviews found no information to support the presidents tweets. Trump later “red Comey over the bureaus Russia investigation.SPYFROM PAGE 1 he had received at least 350 complaints from voters about the existence of the Red PointsŽ sites. He said some were vent set up inside voting centers. He called it a pressure mechanism, an element of political and social blackmailŽ directed at a poorer sector of the population. National Electoral Council president Tibisay Lucena later said of“cials had con“rmed a handful of complaints and recti“ed any violations, but he insisted that overall they were nothing in comparison to previous electoral processes.Ž Maduro, setting an example for government supporters who he called on to vote early, cast his ballot in Caracas shortly after “reworks and loud speakers blasting a military hymn roused Venezuelans from sleep around 5 a.m. He said Venezuelans would provide an example of democracy to the world and brushed back suggestions he was taking the country down an authoritarian path. Maduro said that if he won the election, he would seek an understanding with his opponents on a way forward for the crisis-wracked country. Im going to stubbornly and obsessively insist in dialogue for peace,Ž he said. Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said about 2.5 million people had voted by 10 a.m. In Petare, home to Caracas biggest slum, voters waited in line to have their Fatherland CardŽ scanned by socialist party volunteers. A woman wearing the red, yellow and blue colors of Venezuelas ”ag scanned each card with her phone „ verifying that cardholders had done their patriotic duty of voting, presumably for Maduro. Nayra Martinez, a city employee and opposition activist, bucked her partys call to abstain from casting her ballot, saying it was no time to stop “ghting. But in the opposition stronghold of eastern Caracas, the leafy streets were largely empty. In the neighborhood of Los Palos Grandes, opposition supporter Henri Roldan said he was not voting. Instead, he planned to eat out at a restaurant, a luxury the 62-year-old now limits himself to once a month since hyperin”ation has devoured the buying power of his pension check. The election has drawn broad criticism since some of Maduros most-popular rivals were barred from running, and several more were forced into exile. Echoing the views of Venezuelas tattered opposition movement, the United States, European Union and many Latin American countries said they would not recognize the results. In addition, pressure tactics honed in past campaigns kicked into overdrive, further tilting the playing “eld in Maduros favor. Almost 75 percent of households said they received government-issued food boxes in the past three months, according to Datanalisis, and Maduro on the stump has promised that the 16.5 million holders of the ”edgling fatherland card will be rewarded for their vote. Some question the wisdom of not competing in an election, even if it is widely seen as rigged. A 2010 study by the Brookings Institution covering 171 electoral boycotts around the world found that such maneuvers rarely succeeded in rendering elections illegitimate in the eyes of the world. Instead, the boycotting party usually emerged weaker and the incumbent empowered. Javier Corrales, a Venezuela expert at Amherst College, said the oppositions sit-out strategy could be as disastrous as its boycott of congressional elections in 2005, which let the ruling party sweep all seats and pass legislation removing presidential term limits that further strengthened Chavez. The irony is that this is the least democratic election of all but its also the best chance the opposition has ever had,Ž said Corrales. If Maduro wins by a large margin, hell take it is as a green light to continue radicalizing and moving in the direction of completely destroying the private sector.ŽVOTEFROM PAGE 1 this? What do we do?Ž Ward asked. The answer is to let everyone grieve, including yourselves.Ž He said people can help grieving family or friends simply by listening. No words are going to “x this. But your presence, being there is what the families need,Ž Ward said. Why is our presence so important? Because dwelling in us is the spirit of God.Ž Church leaders wore green T-shirts with gold lettering „the colors of Santa Fe High School. Inside an outline of the state of Texas, the letters spelled out a verse from 2 Corinthians 4:8-9. In a nearby church kitchen, parishioners prepared plates of barbecue to be sold after the service, with all the proceeds going to victims families. At Arcadia First Baptist Church, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott hugged parishioners as they arrived. Among them was Monica Bracknell, an 18-year-old senior who survived the shooting. She stopped to tell the governor that the attack should not be turned into a political battle over gun control. Surrounded by television cameras, photographers and reporters, she told Abbott guns were not to blame. People are making this into a political issue,Ž she said she told him. This is not a political issue. Its not a gun-law issue.Ž It was not the “rst time faith in Santa Fe has been tested with the whole country watching. In 2000, the city was at the center of a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that banned students from leading pregame prayer over loudspeakers. The court ruled 6-3 that the school districts policy of allowing student-led prayers at campus events violated the constitutionally required separation of church and state. Justices said giving students a public forum for prayer was effectively sponsoring the message. Also Sunday, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick called for a hardeningŽ of the nations school buildings in the wake of the attack. Patrick, a Republican, blamed a culture of violenceŽ and said more needs to be done to keep shooters away from students, such as restricting school entrances and arming teachers. When youre facing someone whos an active shooter, the best way to take that shooter down is with a gun. But even better than that is four to “ve guns to one,Ž he told CNNs State of the Union.Ž On ABCs The Week,Ž Patrick said he supports background checks for gun purchasers but stressed that gun regulation starts at home.Ž Meanwhile, families planned funerals. Services for 17-year-old Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh took place Sunday at a mosque in suburban Houston. Her father, Abdul Aziz Sheikh, described his daughter as an accomplished student who aspired to work in civil service and hoped one day to join Pakistans foreign of“ce. Her body is to be returned to Karachi. The 17-year-old suspect, Dmitrios Pagourtzis, has been jailed on capital murder charges. In their “rst statement since the massacre, Pagourtzis family said Saturday that 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.

In an online statement, the school district said it investigated the accusations and con“rmed that these reports were untrue.Ž Poehl said that there was no history of mental health issues with his client, though there may be some indications of family history.Ž He said it was too early to elaborate.GRIEFFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOFuneral prayers are oered for Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh, who was killed in the Santa Fe High School shooting, during a service at the Brand Lane Islamic Center Sunday in Staord, Texas.

The Sun /Monday, May 21, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: What is your opinion of the keto diet? I have been doing it for a few weeks now and lost a few pounds, but it goes against everything I usually eat „ high quantities of red meat, lots of full-fat foods and dairy. Since I am losing some weight and actually feel better and am sleeping better, I like the short-term results, but I cannot see this as a long-term way of life. I am concerned about all that fat going into my body and clogging my arteries. I exercise every day with Zumba, jogging, etc. „ J.P. ANSWER: The ketosis diet favors very large amounts of fat „ 60 to 80 percent of calories, with 15 to 20 percent of calories from protein and 5 percent or less from carbohydrates. The theory is to cause ketosis, a physiological condition of ketones in the blood as a result of high fat intake. It has been used since the 1920s as a treatment for seizures, but now is used for weight loss. Like every diet, it has both good and bad aspects. On the good side, it is eective at short-term weight loss. However, much of the apparent early weight loss is due to water weight, which is a universal nding on a high-fat diet. Weight gain is likely when stopping the diet. It is highly restrictive. Further, many of the foods that you can't eat on this diet are those that have been shown to be associated with improved health, especially vegetables and most fruits. Most people will have a substantial increase in cholesterol levels (by as much as 50 percent). The red meat and saturated fat probably present an independent risk of heart disease and cancer (even apart from its eect on cholesterol), although this remains somewhat controversial. I do not recommend the keto diet for long-term use, at all. It may have some benet in helping with short-term weight loss, but I think there are much healthier alternatives for most people. DEAR DR. ROACH: A couple of years ago, a letter writer asked if you knew anything about the eect of Advil on men with enlarged prostates. It seemed that ibuprofen decreased his trips to the bathroom. I have found the same thing myself. Taking two Advil allows me to wait ve to six hours before having to urinate. Has there been more research on why this happens? „ S.Z. ANSWER: There is some more information. Men with symptoms of enlarged prostate often have increased urinary frequency, combined with incomplete emptying. This makes sense; if you can't empty your entire bladder, you will have to empty it more frequently. So it seems the ibuprofen is letting you empty the bladder more completely. There are two major reasons for incomplete emptying, and dierent theories for why ibuprofen might work on each. Benign (not cancerous) enlargement of the prostate is one reason. In this case, it is hypothesized that ibuprofen stops the growth of cells in the prostate, but the exact mechanism isn't clear. Reducing the size of the prostate can allow better, more complete urine ow. The other common cause of the prostate symptoms is inammation of the prostate. In this case, ibuprofen's anti-inammatory eect reducing symptoms is easier to understand. The fact that it works so quickly for you suggests that the anti-inammatory eect is more important in your case. Ibuprofen does have possible side eects, but two ibuprofen once a day is unlikely to cause signicant problems.DEAR ABBY: I'm average, tness-wise, and work in an oce. My girlfriend, who is naturally athletic, has belonged to a gym for a year. Our two tness paths collided when I was enjoying a coee with her and her training partner, "Trixi," at her place one day. Trixi made a muscle. When I complimented her on her impressive arm denition, she responded I should see my girlfriend's. When my girlfriend exed, her bicep popped up so high my eyes bulged. Trixi then prodded me to ex. I didn't want to because I knew my muscle wasn't as developed. Trixi felt both our arms and declared mine softer. She then pushed us to arm wrestle. Anyway, two times on the right and once on the left, I ended up with the back of my hand securely pinned down to the table to their extreme amusement. I felt embarrassed because there was nothing I could do to stop her stronger arms driving me down. The upshot is, I feel there has been a power shift in our relationship. I have now been defeated in arm wrestling in front of her parents and a group of her cheering girlfriends. How should I adjust? Must I just accept her superior strength, tell her to tone down her showing o or get myself stronger at the gym? „ Outmuscled In Australia DEAR OUTMUSCLED: A wise person asks his or her physician before starting a diet and/ or exercise program. Then, if you get the go-ahead, go to a gym and gradually begin a regular exercise program. While you're there, ask a trainer to help you get started with the weights and machines so you can learn proper form and build yourself up rather than tear yourself down. If you do, it will not only increase your strength, but benet you in other ways. And by the way, your girlfriend must be very immature to deliberately emasculate you in front of her friends and family. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND ON is about having self-control with credit cards. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: My husband and I decided to pay o our credit cards, get out of deep debt and stay out of debt because we'll both be retiring in three years. It hasn't been easy, but we knew we could do it with a little self-control. Before either of us bought anything, we'd ask ourselves, 'Is this purchase necessary?' 'How will this benet us?' and nally, 'Can we live without it?' "We cleaned out the house and had a huge garage sale, sold our large house and bought a small home that has less upkeep. We're happier now than we've ever been, with less 'stu,' and we have more time and money to travel, pursue hobbies and enjoy life. "I only wish we had done this 30 years ago!" „ Jack and Karen F., Cape Coral, Fla.Upfront benet of keto does not warrant extended use Hard work in gym pays o with arm-wrestling victory Pare down, then live it upHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, May 21, 2018 NATION HELENA, Mont. „ Forget the gray, green and brown dinosaurs in the Jurassic ParkŽ movies. Paleontologist Jack Horner wants to transport people back in time to see a feathered Tyrannosaurus rex colored bright red and a blue triceratops with red fringe similar to a roosters comb. Horner, who consulted with director Steven Spielberg on the Jurassic ParkŽ “lms, is developing a three-dimensional hologram exhibit that will showcase the latest theories on what dinosaurs looked like. He is working with entertainment company Base Hologram to create an exhibit that will let people feel as though theyre on an archaeological dig, inside a laboratory and surrounded by dinosaurs in the wild. Im always trying to “gure out a good way to get the science of paleontology across to the general public,Ž Horner said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. Like taking them into the “eld or taking them into my laboratory and then using the technology that we have to show people what dinosaurs were really like.Ž That understanding of what dinosaurs looked like has changed a lot since the original Jurassic ParkŽ in 1993. For example, researchers now believe dinosaurs were much more bird-like than lizard-like, and scientists studying dinosaur skulls have found keratin, a substance that gives birds their bright colors. We can see at least areas that could be vividly colored, very much like birds, and theres no reason to make them different from birds,Ž Horner said. Horner and Base Hologram workers have been developing the exhibits story line for a couple of months, with plans to have multiple traveling exhibits ready to launch by spring 2019. The company wants to place them in museums, science centers and other institutions where they might spur debate among scientists who dont share the theory that dinosaurs were colorful, feathered creatures. The controversy is OK because it makes people talk,Ž said Base Hologram executive vice president Michael Swinney. Live performances using holograms have gained attention in recent years, notably through concerts that feature likenesses of dead performers such as Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur. Until now, Base Hologram, a subsidiary of the live entertainment company Base Entertainment, has used the technology to put on concerts by late singers Roy Orbison and Marie Callas. As the “eld becomes more competitive, the company is seeking new areas to apply the technology, such as science, CEO Brian Becker said. Horner previously worked with Microsoft to create his dinosaur holograms that can be used with virtual and augmented reality technologies. He noted the technology used in the exhibit can be applied even more broadly, including by paleontologists in their labs. What we do now is, when we want to envision something, we get an artist to paint it,Ž Horner said. Now, were going to be able to create a 3-D immersive experience a lot better than a painting.ŽJurassic Park dinosaur experts next big thing: hologramsBy MATT VOLZASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this 2016 le photo, paleontologist Jack Horner stands with fans at Jack Horner Family Day at the Museum of Rockies in Bozeman, Mont. WASHINGTON „ The Trump administration has decided not to impose tariffs on Chinese products for now, after progress between the two nations on trade issues in two days of talks, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. Were putting the trade war on hold, right now,Ž Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday.Ž President Donald Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on up to $150 billion worth of Chinese imports to punish Beijing for violating American intellectual property. China has said it would to retaliate with tariffs on such products as soybeans to airplanes. Mnuchins comments came after the two nations Saturday released a joint statement Saturday in which China proposed to signi“cantly increase purchasesŽ of U.S. goods. But the statement released by the White House didnt put a dollar “gure on the increased purchases by China, or address a comment Friday by Trumps top economic adviser, suggesting that Beijing had agreed to cut its annual trade surplus with the U.S. by $200 billion. Vice Premier Liu He, a envoy for Chinese President Xi Jinping, said in Washington that talks with Mnuchin, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer ended with a pledge not to engage in a trade war, according to a Xinhua news agency report. We made very meaningful progress and we agreed on a framework. The framework includes their agreement to substantially reduce the trade de“cit by increasing their purchases of goods,Ž Mnuchin said. The two sides have agreed to numerical targets, he said, but the he didnt want to disclose them.US puts tariffs against China on holdBy ANDREW MAYEDABLOOMBERG NEWS TREASURY SECRETARY STEVEN MNUCHINNEW YORK „ Criminal investigators are getting their “rst look at materials gathered from raids on the home and of“ce of President Donald Trumps personal lawyer as a process to separate items subject to attorney-client privilege appears to be meeting a judges demand that it occur speedily and ef“ciently. The progress comes just days before U.S. District Judge Kimba M. Wood will preside over a fourth hearing resulting from Michael Cohens efforts to gain in”uence over what potential evidence seized in the April 9 raids can be deemed subject to the privilege and blocked from the view of criminal prosecutors. Prosecutors say they are investigating possible fraud as they study Cohens personal business dealings. Wood last month designated a former federal judge, Barbara Jones, to serve as a neutral party „ known as a special master „ and resolve disputes over what items can be kept secret and out of the view of investigators. Twice, Jones has “led letters updating the status of the privilege search, most recently a week ago. She said she will provide Wood with a timeline for concluding the privilege review once she has received enough of Cohens electronic property. In a letter to the court on Friday, Cohens lawyers indicated they were encouraged by the system that was set up, noting the careful review procedure that is currently being overseen by the special master.Ž The letter was “led as they sought to exclude Michael Avenatti, an attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, from joining the court case. The “rst materials to face the scrutiny of Jones and lawyers for Cohen, Trump and the Trump Organization, were likely the easiest to study: eight boxes of paper documents. The majority of what was seized, though, was contained on over a dozen electronic devices, including computers, cellular phones and an iPad. The paper documents, numbering in the hundreds or thousands, were processed over a twoweek period, enabling criminal prosecutors in recent days to begin scrutinizing raid materials for the “rst time. But it is likely that the electronic documents, containing a much larger volume of materials, will take longer to process. Jones said in a letter to the court a week ago that the government was expected to produce all of the content from the raids except for the electronic contents of a single computer by Friday. Then, lawyers for Cohen and Trump will designate items they think are subject to attorney-client privilege as the same time Jones is making her own designations. At hearings last month, Wood said she wanted the process to move much faster than the more than a year that it took lawyers to resolve privilege disputes after a civil rights attorney was arrested in a terrorism probe in 2002. Joanna Hendon, a lawyer for Trump, said last month that even the president was ready to make himself available, as neededŽ to aid the attorney-client privilege search. Lawyers for Cohen had pledged that they were ready to work around around-the-clock, if necessary, to ensure there was no delay. Last month, Cohens lawyers revealed that his three clients in 2017 and 2018 were Trump, Elliott Broidy „ a Trump fundraiser who paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair „ and Fox News host Sean Hannity. In court papers, prosecutors have said the searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen, and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather relate to Cohens own business dealings.Ž The raids were authorized by a federal magistrate judge based on factual information presented by federal prosecutors in New York. They were triggered in part by a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who separately is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.Investigators get first look from Cohen raidBy LARRY NEUMEISTERASSOCIATED PRESS MICHAEL COHEN NEW YORK „ A wily 14-year-old boy who posed as a New York City police of“cer while snatching a legally blind mans wallet in a Manhattan subway station on pretense of helping him was arrested on Sunday. His mother turned the baby-faced youth in to police nearly a week after authorities said he ”ed the subway station at 34th Street and Eighth Avenue, near Macys, leaving his victim behind. On May 14, police said he approached the 64-year-old man, identifying himself as an of“cer and offering to lead him through the station and past a turnstile to his train. Surveillance video shows the man standing quietly as the teenager unzips his backpack and takes the wallet. The boy then bolts out with the wallet, which police said contained $85 cash and several credit cards. One card was charged $500 at a nearby store, police determined during an investigation that is ongoing. Authorities released the video with the victims face blurred out and several still images that led to Sundays arrest. Though he looks younger than 14, judging by his face, police estimate the suspect is about 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs a hefty 150 lbs. In the video, he is wearing a dark blue shirt, black and white pants, boots and has his own backpack strapped on. The teenagers name was not released because of his age, nor was the victims. The boy faces charges of grand larceny and criminal impersonation of a police of“cer. It was not immediately clear if the young suspect had an attorney, or whether he has been arraigned, appearing in court to admit or deny the alleged offense.14-year-old pretends hes a cop, robs legally blind manBy VERENA DOBNIKASSOCIATED PRESS Boy, 3, rescued from manure pit on farm Helicopter carrying 3 people crashes in Louisiana More than 25 hospitalized in NYC due to synthetic marijuanaHONEY BROOK, Pa.

By GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressANAHEIM, Calif. „ Shohei Ohtani struck out nine while throwing 7 ‡ innings of excellent six-hit ball in his seventh career start, and the Los Angeles Angels snapped their five-game skid with a 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. Martin Maldonado homered and drove in two runs, and Zack Cozart drove in two more runs on sacrifice flies as the Angels wrapped up a disappointing 11-game homestand with only four victories „ including both games started by Ohtani (4-1). Los Angeles rookie two-way sensation had another strong outing in the longest start of his stateside career, limiting Tampa Bay to three baserunners in his first six innings. Ohtani retired 12 straight Rays after yielding rookie Johnny Fields homer leading off the third. Ohtani then showed his re silience late. He kept Tampa Bay scoreless in the seventh despite yielding two singles, and he gave up a run while battling for two more outs in the eighth before leaving to a standing ovation. While Ohtani threw 110 pitches, reliever Sergio Romo started for Tampa Bay for the second consecutive day. He faced the Angels first six batters and got four outs while becoming the first pitcher in 38 years to last at least one inning in back-to-back starts.

By JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. „ Stephen Curry got his groove back to score 35 points with five 3-pointers, shooting over James Harden and driving past the Houston star as the Golden State Warriors made a second-half statement to beat the Rockets 126-85 on Sunday night for a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. Kevin Durant added 25 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Draymond Green grabbed 17 rebounds to go with 10 points and six assists. The Warriors won an NBA-record 16th consecutive home postseason game, surpassing the Chicago Bulls mark of 15 in a row from April 27, 1990-May 21, 1991. The defending champions got defensive „ and maybe a little mad „ after a 127-105 Game 2 defeat Wednesday night at Houston, determined to make stops to ignite the transition game and open up 3-point shooters. And they eventually got Curry going with 18 points on 7-for-7 shooting in the third quarter. Harden had 20 points and nine assists, while Chris Paul added 13 points and 10 rebounds as they combined to shoot just 12 for 32. Game 4 is Tuesday night at Oracle Arena. Curry and Durant each scored five quick points as Golden State opened the third quarter with a 10-0 burst to go ahead 64-43. Under pressure from Paul, Curry swished a 3 from way back with 5:06 left in the third. He struggled with his longrange shot again early but drove through the paint at every chance. Curry hit a baseline 3-pointer at the 9:02 mark of the first but missed his next five 3s before going 4 for 5 in the second half. He is now 7 of 25 from long range „ he made one in each of the first two games. The Warriors five starters all scored in double figures, the first time theyve done so this postseason. Trevor Ariza and Green received a double-technical with 6:49 to play when Ariza shoved Green as they traded words. Both potent offenses were slow getting rolling as the teams played strong defense. Harden and Paul began 3 for 14 with Paul missing six shots before getting his first basket on goaltending against Andre Iguodala 2:39 before halftime. Golden State began getting the looks it liked after halftime. The Warriors faced more stingy, in-the-face pressure from Houston, making it hard to get any early flow shooting. Durant hit his first 3 6:27 before halftime then missed from the deep the next time down. A moment of silence was held before the national anthem for victims of the Houston school shooting.TIP-INSRockets: The Rockets surrendered 10 fast-break points in the first period while getting none of their own. ... They were outrebounded 49-41 and shot 32 for 80 from the floor. Warriors: Kevon Looney had two key blocks off the bench in the first. ... Durant notched his 20th straight postseason game with 20 or more points. By ROGER MOONEY Tampa Bay TimesTAMPA … Capitals G Braden Holtby basically summed up playoff life for the Capitals after Saturdays Game 5 loss in the Eastern Conference final when he said the team never makes it easy for itself. No, we dont,Ž coach Barry Trotz agreed Sunday. The Capitals, who enjoyed a 2-0 lead in the series, face elimination tonight in Game 6 against the Lightning. That they play at home could be seen as an advantage, except the Capitals are 3-5 at home in these playoffs and lost their first two games there in this series. This group seems to never do anything really easy,Ž Trotz said. They have responded all the time. Thats the grace in it all, is that they do respond, they battle for each other, they find another level.Ž The Capitals played well in the past two games, outplaying the Lightning for much of the six periods. And yet, here they are. F Tom Wilson said the thought of the season possibly ending tonight will be on their minds as the Caps take the ice. You know its do your die, your back is against the wall, all those cliches,Ž he said. That being said, its a sport weve played our whole lives. Were familiar. We just have to make sure we do our thing, execute the game plan and well be all right.ŽAbout the “ nal 40 minutes ƒThe Lightning played what it believed was the best period of the postseason during the first period Saturday. But it went away from what it did in the opening 20 minutes after it took a 3-0 lead on F Ryan Callahans goal 33 seconds into the second. C Steven Stamkos said the team went into a defensive mode after that. Sometimes when you do that, you sit back a little too much,Ž he said. The talk with us is, lets continue to be aggressive. Obviously not taking any risks or chances, but were at our best when were skating and using our legs to check. We saw that in the first period and a half where we were all over them. Thats because we were moving our feet, creating turnovers, creating opportunities to score. Our D were skating, allowing our exits out of our zone to be clean and crisp. We just got away from that a little bit. That will be a key for us to start the game (tonight).ŽJoining history?The Lightning can become only the third team since 1974-75 to lose the first two games of the Stanley Cup semifinals at home and rally to win the series. If so, it will join the 1984 Islanders (versus Montreal) and the 1991 Penguins (versus Boston). Both those teams won their series in six games. With a win tonight, the Lightning would be the first team since the 2013 Bruins to win four straight games during any point of a conference final.

Winnipeg got a power play early in the third, but couldnt muster much of anything. The Knights smothered much of the Jets attack for the next 10 minutes, with Hellebuyck having to come up with big stops on William Karlsson and Eric Haula to keep his team within one. The Jets pressed with under 4 minutes to go, with Fleury stopping captain Blake Wheeler on the doorstep, but it wasnt nearly enough as the Knights closed out their third straight series on the road. The Jets had the NHLs second-best record with 114 points in the regular season.

Associated PressLE MANS, France „ Defending MotoGP champion Marc Marquez won a crash-marred French MotoGP on Sunday, extending his overall lead in the championship as he chases a fifth world title. The dominant Spanish rider powered his Honda to victory for only the second time on the Le Mans circuit where he retired last year and finished a lowly 13th in 2016. He raised his front wheel in a wheelieŽ celebration and banged his fist on his chest after crossing the line. The 25-year-old Marquez then jumped off his bike and ran over to celebrate with fans. His other win here was in 2014. The grip of the track was a little bit less than yesterday,Ž Marquez said. Im happy, because this victory is important on this track.Ž Danilo Petrucci took second place on his Ducati ahead of Italian countryman Valentino Rossi, the seven-time world champion. I knew the race would be very, very difficult. We struggled a lot with the front tire,Ž Petrucci said. But I managed the rear very well. Then I just followed Marc.Ž The 39-year-old Rossi profited from the spills to climb up from ninth on the starting grid. I had a good rhythm all the race,Ž Rossi said after his second podium of the season. Home favorite Johann Zarco and Italian rider Andrea Dovizioso were among several riders to come off their bikes in the first four laps. Zarco had taken the fourth pole position of his career on Saturday „ the first Frenchman on pole at Le Mans since Christian Sarron in 1988. Marquez started from second, but both made poor starts and Jorge Lorenzo took the race lead as he chased a sixth career win at Le Mans. Dovizioso moved into second spot, while Zarco fought back to third with Marquez fourth. But Dovizioso suddenly crashed on the fourth lap, taking his Ducati too wide on entry into turn 8 and sliding off the track. He was unharmed and wrung his hands in frustration. Minutes later, Zarco made a similar braking error and flew off his Yamaha. Lorenzo almost crashed too, when Marquez made a stunning but borderline dangerous move on his inside to lead with 18 laps to go. Petrucci overtook Lorenzo soon after to move up to third, while Rossi moved ahead of Lorenzo into third with 14 laps to go. The Yamaha rider then set a lap record and had Marquez, his bitter rival, in his sights. Last month, Rossi called Marquez a dirtyŽ rider at the Argentina GP in their latest bust-up. But with 10 laps left, the 25-yearold Marquez set a lap record of his own and was untroubled thereafter. He is well clear in the standings, with 95 points. Spanish rider Maverick Vinales is next with 59, one ahead of Zarco and three clear of Rossi.

AUTO RACING: MotoGPMarquez wins French MotoGP to extend world championship lead By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCONCORD, N.C. „ Something had to be done to NASCARs annual All-Star race, which had stopped being special years ago. A bunch of drivers circled around Charlotte Motor Speedway in cars too difficult to pass for the lead, so whoever had the clean air raced to an easy $1 million prize. It was terrible racing and everybody knew it. So give NASCAR and Charlotte president Marcus Smith credit for trying a radically different rules package in a grasp toward adding something to the snooze-fest. They went with restrictor plates, the choking gadgets designed to limit horsepower, which are really only used at Daytona and Talladega. But pack racing on a boring 1.5mile oval is at minimum something different, so there was no reason for NASCAR not to give it a try. The results were mixed, and partly because Kevin Harvick won for the third consecutive race, and sixth time this season. Five of those wins are Cup Series points victories. The final 10 laps, which are supposed to be a rough and tumble chase for the $1 million, were instead a Harvick rout and that can dilute the results. The reality is that the risk taken in trying a new package, and Harvick withstanding, the results it produced were at least something different. Kudos to NASCAR for trying something, right?Ž Joey Logano said. We as competitors come into this racetrack and say, The heck with it, well go for anything. At least NASCAR has the same attitude. Its the race that you have nothing to lose. They looked at it that way.Ž NASCAR felt the same way and touted the 38 green-flag passes for the lead. Granted, Harvick led the final 11 laps and there was no dramatic sprint for the monetary prize, but there were zero greenflag passes for the lead last year. In fact, there were a combined 61 green-flag passes from 2013 through last season. So from a statistical point of view, the package clearly was a step in the right direction. Were not highfiving,Ž said Steve ODonnell, NASCARs head of competition. I think you judge it by the fans. I think you look down the last 10 laps, everybody is standing up. People were enthused. You saw drivers out there competing. You saw three lead changes in one lap at the end of the third stage.Ž NASCARs in this really weird position in that it knows it needs some radical on-track improvement, but changes are expensive to the teams and disruptive to the purity of a championship season. Its why Smith, who has to sell tickets to next weeks Coca-Cola 600, wouldnt hesitate to bring the rules package back Sunday. Smith loved what he saw in the All-Star race, and he understands that the 600, the longest race by 100 miles on NASCARs schedule, could use some spicing up. But, the drivers werent exactly in love with the restrictor plates. Yes, they were on board with trying something new for the All-Star race. But longterm? It takes planning and NASCAR cant fairly tell teams to bring the same package back to the 600 next week. Or can they? Does there become a point of no return in which ever y week needs to be an on-track science experiment in NASCARs bid to fix a broken product? Its a big ship to turn,Ž acknowledged Harvick, the hottest driver in NASCAR this season. NASCAR used this package at the Xfinity Series race at Indianapolis last year, and the series will use it there again this season and at Pocono and Michigan. Where it shows up next in the Cup Series is a mystery. What wasnt a mystery, at least until Harvick flexed his Ford and took control of the race, was who was goin g to win. That wasnt the case last year. I think you knew on Lap 7 that Kyle Busch had won the All-Star Race, I think we all knew that last year,Ž ODonnell said of the fields inability to catch the leader in last years race. AUTO RACING: NASCARNASCAR should try All-Star shakeup again He came out way faster and played much more aggressive than I did,Ž Zverev said. It just changed momentum ... If you dont have the momentum on your side, youre not going to beat Rafa.Ž Still, Zverev was pleased that he dominated Nadal in the second set and was up a break in the third before the rain came. I was not far away from beating Rafa on a clay court in a Masters final, so I guess I can take that to Paris,Ž Zverev said. Nadal, who improved to 5-0 in his career against Zverev, has won a record 10 French Opens. Of course Rafa will be the favorite there,Ž said Zverev, who has never been past the fourth round in a major. Ill be in the other half of the draw and thats a good thing.Ž Nadal will reclaim the No. 1 ranking on Monday from Roger Federer, who is sitting out the clay season to prepare for Wimbledon. My first victory here in 2005 is one of my greatest memories,Ž Nadal said during the trophy presentation. To have this cup with me so many years later is really specialissimo.Ž Earlier, Elina Svitolina defended the womens title, facing little resistance from top-ranked Simona Halep in a 6-0, 6-4 win. I dominated all the match,Ž Svitolina said. Just like in last years final, Halep appeared bothered by an injury. Nadal and Zverev had each won two titles on clay this season entering the final, with Nadal lifting trophies in Monte Carlo and Barcelona and Zverev taking Munich and Madrid. Midway through the final set, Nadal showed off his shot-making skills with an over-the-shoulder put away with his back to the net, earning long applause from the crowd. Nadal, who hadnt won the Italian Open since 2013, picked up a winners check of 935,000 euros (nearly $1 million). Congratulations Rafa,Ž Zverev said. Youre the greatest clay-court player of all time.Ž Halep called a trainer onto the court for an apparent back problem while trailing 2-3 in the second set then exited the court for treatment. I was a little bit too stiff with my body and I couldnt stay in the rallies,Ž Halep said. Last year, Halep rolled her ankle in the final and lost a set lead to Svitolina. This time, Svitolina didnt face a single break point in a match that lasted just 67 minutes. Halep said her physical problems were the result of a long three-set win over Maria Sharapova in the semifinals a day earlier.TENNISFrom Page 1AP PHOTORafael Nadal hugs Alexander Zverev, face to camera, at the end of their final match at the Italian Open Sunday in Rome.

Associated PressATLANTA „ The Atlanta Braves have released Jose Bautista a month after picking up the veteran slugger and will make Johan Camargo their starting third baseman. General manager Alex Anthopolous said the team made the decision Saturday before Camargo drove in two runs in an 8-1 win over Miami. Camargo, a switch-hitter, will play every day. The 37-year-old Bautista hit .143 with two homers and five RBIs in 12 games with the Braves after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett. The six-time All-Star struck out 12 times in 35 at-bats. We agreed, for him, if there wasnt going to be at-bats here and there wasnt going to be playing time here, that it was not right for him,Ž Anthopolous said Sunday. Bautista played outfield during most of his 14-year career, but the Braves signed him to a minor league contract last month, hoping the former Toronto star could add depth to the National Leagues topscoring offense and shore up third base. Camargo, a 24-year-old from Panama, was the frontrunner to win the job in spring training before suffering an oblique injury that sidelined him for the first 16 games. Utility man Ryan Flaherty began the season at third base and briefly led the NL in hitting, but the Braves were hoping that Camargo would ultimately pass him and Bautista. Camargo has a .284 career average with six homers and 40 RBIs in 106 games. He filled in at shortstop and didnt hit that well when Dansby Swanson missed 13 games with left wrist inflammation, but he is hitting .292 in his last 24 at-bats and is an upgrade defensively over Bautista. Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, May 21, 2018 / The SunAP PHOTOJustify (7), with Mike Smith aboard, runs against Good Magic, with Jose Ortiz atop, in the final stretch of the 143rd Preakness Stakes Saturday in Baltimore. Justify won the race. By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressBALTIMORE „ Justify keeps showing something new each time he races. In the Kentucky Derby, he showed he could run in the mud in a crowded, 20-horse field. In the Preakness, he showed he could withstand the challenge of a top rival pressing him early and hold off others before the finish line „ also in the mud. For his next trick, hell need to show he can endure the grueling 1-mile Belmont in New York on June 9. And it he does that, Justify will become horse racing the second Triple Crown winner in four years. If youre a superior horse, you can do it,Ž trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday. Ive seen horses go a mile and a half and they never won again. Its a weird, quirky race, but I dont see why though he wouldnt handle it.Ž Had the Preakness been another tenth of a mile, a hardcharging Bravazo mightve passed Justify and ended the Triple Crown bid on Saturday. Bravazo will go to the Belmont where Justify will have plenty of familiar challenges „ and a fresh ones „ standing in the way of becoming the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown. In addition to Bravazo, Kentucky Derby horses Hofburg, Vino Rosso and Free Drop Billy and Preakness horse Tenfold are among those likely to challenge Justify in whats considered the most difficult race on the Triple Crown trail. Bravazo is a tough little horse, and I think his pedigree will let him run that far,Ž trainer D. Wayne Lukas said. So, well take him on and see what happens.Ž Justifys run in the Kentucky Derby was convincing enough to scare off a few opposing owners and trainers from the Preakness. Given the fatigue of difficult races two weeks apart, they could see Justify as beatable at the Belmont. Baffert, who had three near-misses with Silver Charm, Real Quiet and War Emblem before American Pharoah broke the 37-year Triple Crown drought in 2015, said Justify is built to power through the fatigue caused by running on the slop twice against high-caliber competition. You do hate to keep running on these wet tracks because it does take a little bit out of them,Ž Baffert said before Justify flew back to Louisville, Kentucky, for some rest and more training. It can be tough. Its not as tough on him because hes a big horse. He can handle it. He was blowing pretty good, he got a good blow out of (the Preakness), but he wasnt as tired as we thought he was.Ž As gassed as Justify looked at the wire in the Preakness jockey Mike Smith is convinced the undefeated colt could have run longer and picked up the pace if asked. Finishing a halflength ahead of Bravazo made it by far Justifys closest victory of his five, but it counts just the same. Although he got tired (Saturday), he was also looking around a bit at the end,Ž Smith said. I certainly could have got after him a whole lot more a lot earlier and made him do a little more, as well.Ž Justify has already done more than expected, a bit of a late bloomer who doesnt have the pedigree of someone like American Pharoah. Baffert went into the year thinking McKinzie gave him a better chance and on Friday recalled thinking of Justify, The backup horse is pretty good, too.ŽHORSE RACING: Triple CrownBelmont distance, fatigue test Justify in Triple Crown bid AP PHOTOAtlanta B raves Jose Bautista watches his three-run home run off Chicago Cubs Jose Quintana during a game, Monday, in Chicago. MLB: BravesBraves release Bautista, Camargo to play 3BAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ Outfielder Juan Soto made his major league debut for the Washington Nationals, at 19 becoming the youngest player in the major leagues. Soto played for three teams in the minor leagues this season and hit .362 with 14 homers and 52 RBIs. He pinch hit in the eighth inning Sunday and struck out against Erik Goeddel in a 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. I was in shock,Ž Soto said before the game. I didnt think it would happen that quick but I feel pretty good.Ž Soto became the first 19-year-old to debut since Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias in 2016 and just the second Nationals player to debut at 19 years after Bryce Harper, who was 19 years, 195 days in 2012. Hes going to get a chance to play,Ž manager Dave Martinez said. I want to put him in situations where he can succeed.Ž Washington made the move one day after Howie Kendrick tore his right Achilles tendon, an injury that ended his season. Adam Eaton and Brian Godwin are also on the disabled list. Soto started the season at Class A Hagerstown, made his debut at Class A Potomac on April 24 then moved up to Double-A Harrisburg on May 10. Right-hander Jefry Rodriguez was optioned to Harrisburg, and outfielder Moises Sierra was designated for assignment to make room for Soto, whose contract was selected from the Senators. Washington also recalled s hortstop Adrian Sanchez from Syracuse.MLB: Nationals19-year-old out“ elder Soto makes Nats debut Field had two hits off Ohtani for the Rays, whose six-game winning streak ended in the finale of an 11-game road trip. Matt Duffy added three hits. Field, the Rays No. 9 hitter, led off the third inning with his fourth career homer, connecting on a first-pitch fastball by Ohtani. Albert Pujols got the day off for the Angels, whose weeklong struggles continued at the plate. Los Angeles still managed to take a 3-1 lead in the fifth despite getting just one hit „ which didnt factor into any of the runs. After Simmons reached on Andrieses error and Cozart walked in the fourth, they both advanced on a wild pitch before scoring on a groundout and a sacrifice fly. Chris Young doubled for Los Angeles first hit after that rally, but didnt score. In the fifth, Mike Trout added another hitless run when he walked, stole two bases and scored on Cozarts sacrifice fly. Trout drew another walk and scored again on a fly by Cozart in the seventh. Maldonado homered in the eighth.ROMO STARTSRomo made the first two starts of his 11-year big league career during the weekend, striking out the side in the first inning Saturday before striking out three more Sunday. Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash used the unusual strategy with Romo to allow the two young pitchers who followed Romo to face the heart of the Angels right-handed order less frequently. Romo became the first pitcher to start backto-back games since Zack Greinke did it for Milwaukee in July 2012 after getting ejected from his first start after four pitches. Romo is the first pitcher to pitch at least one inning in back-toback starts since Steve McCatty did it for Oakland in 1980.TRAINERS ROOMRays: RHP Nathan Eovaldi will make his fourth rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Durham.

Staff ReportConcluding an inclement weekend in Charlotte County, the Stone Crabs attem pted to wrap up their series with the Jupiter Hammerheads with a double header on Sunday at Charlotte Sports Park. However, the rain allowed for only the first game to be played, with Charlotte falling 8-3 in a weather-shortened seven innings. The loss means the two teams split the series after Charlotte won 7-1 on Friday before Saturdays rainout. Charlotte (19-22) fell behind in the first inning and never rallied for the lead as the Hammerheads found success against Stone Crabs starting pitcher Sam McWilliams. In four innings, McWilliams allowed four runs on seven hits, and his relief would fare no better. Right-handed reliever Mikey York allowed four more Jupiter runs to score in his one inning of work, as he allowed seven batters to reach base. Though Charlotte tied the game at 2-2 in the third when Nate Lowe scored Josh Lowe on an RBI single and then David OlmedoBarrera later walked in Nate Lowe, the Hammerheads responded by scoring two runs in each of the next three innings. Peter Maris added his third home run of the year in the bottom of the fifth as the Stone Crabs final run of the game. Charlotte will travel to begin its next series when it takes on the Tampa Tarpons tonight at 6:30 at Steinbrenner Field.M i LB: Hammerheads 8, Stone Crabs 3Stone Crabs trail from the start in weather-shortened loss SUN FILE PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLPeter Mariss third home run of the season was one of the few bright spots for Charlotte in an 8-3 loss to Jupiter on Sunday.
