NEWS WIRESEBRING „ While a three-day weekend is a great time to be with family and enjoy a picnic or barbecues, Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, was not originally intended for those purposes. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for soldiers who died to keep America free. Waterloo, New York, was recognized as the of“cial birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon B. Johnson in May of 1966. Its origins go much further back than that however, to just after the Civil War as a way to honor the dead of that war on both sides of the con”ict. Gen. John Logan, commander of the Grand Republic Army, proclaimed May 30, 1868, the inaugural Decoration Day. According to Usmemorialday.org, Logan chose the date because there were no other battle anniversaries. It was during that “rst Decoration Day at Arlington National Cemetery that Gen. James Gar“eld gave a speech as thousands of participants decorated some 20,000 graves of Union and Confederate soldiers. The “rst state to adopt the holiday was New York, followed by other northern states. The South refused to join the movement until the movement included honoring soldiers killed in action through all wars. All states observe Memorial Day on the last Monday in May and celebrate with a three-day weekend spent with family and most importantly, remembering those who gave the ultimate Day of remembranceBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITER KIM LEATHERMAN /STAFF JROTC cadets prepare graves with ags in preparation for Memorial Day.

The worlds largest rosebush is a white Lady Banksia located in Tombstone, Arizona. The rose bush spreads over an arbor that covers over 9,000 square feet. 2. The worlds oldest living rose is believed to be 1,000 years old. It grows on the wall of the Cathedral of Hildesheim in Germany and its presence is documented since A.D. 815. According to the legend, the rosebush symbolizes the prosperity of the city of Hildesheim; as long as it ”ourishes, Hildesheim will not decline. In 1945 Allied bombers destroyed the cathedral, yet the bush survived. Its roots remained intact beneath the debris, and soon the bush was growing strong again. 3. The worlds most expensive rose is a 2006 variety by famed rose breeder David Austin that was christened Juliet. Breeding the rose took a total 15 years and cost $5 million. Juliet is now considered the worlds most expensive rose cultivar. 4. Out of all colors, there are no black roses. What might sometimes be referred to as a black rose is actually a dark red rose. A good example is The Black Rose of TurkeyŽ, is a breed that appears pitch-black to the eye, but is actually has a dark reddish-crimson color. 5. The rose also grows into a fruit. The fruit is called a Rose Hip. It is shaped like a berry and most are red in color but you can “nd black and dark purple versions. Source: http://www. ”owerweb.com/en/ article/195137/15-Amazing-Facts-about-Roses Chowdown event moved to DeVane ParkLAKE PLACID „ Residents of the Caladium Capital of the World have been enjoying the food truck invasion-style events over the past couple of months. This month will be no exception, as the event will go on as planned from 5-9 p.m. on Memorial Day Monday. However, the location will change from the usual spot at Stuart Park to DeVane Park. The event is usually held in Stuart Park but the old pavilion was recently torn down and the cement has just been poured for the new and improved pavilion. We think that the new pavilion will be ready by next month,Ž Town Clerk Eva Cooper-Hapeman said. For now, we will just decide monthly.Ž The Chowdown Food Truck events bring several different trucks to offer a wide variety of food and generally draw large crowds. After a rough start, the Chowdown was allowed to come into the town as a one-time event in order to gauge public interest. The owner of the event company originally wanted to host the events monthly at DeVane Park because he liked the layout of the park. The Town Council debated the pros and cons of allowing the food trucks into town and it advised Town Administrator Phil Williams to make the decision on the frequency and location after it was decided that the trucks and cars would put a lot of wear and tear on the grass. Williams let the event company owner try Stuart Park, just east of DeVane, because the trucks could park on the asphalt around the park and there would only be the customer foot traf“c on the grass. Everyone seemed happy with the compromise and the ChowDown organizers returned. Bill Brantley of Brantley Construction said he will have the new pavilion in Stuart Park up well before the Caladium Festival, scheduled for July 27-29.By KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITER KIM LEATHERMAN / STAFF The old pavilion in Stuart Park has been torn down and another one will soon take its place. Brantley Construction laid the concrete work several days ago. OFFER EXPIRES 5/31/2018.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5 www.highlandsnewssun.com OBITUARIESShirley BirdŽ BlantonShirley Blanton, 89, of St. Augustine, Florida went to her heavenly home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 20, 2018. Miss Shirley was born in Gillie, Kentucky on Oct. 19, 1928 to Ben and Sallie Holbrook. In 1946 she graduated from the Pine Mountain Settlement School in Harlan, Kentucky. She left the mountains of Kentucky for the beautiful shores of St. Augustine, Florida. Here she launched her nursing career. Miss Shirley nursed for over 50 years in St. Johns and Flagler counties. However, most of her career was spent at the original Bunnell Hospital and the of“ce of Dr. John Canakaris. Miss Shirley was known and loved by most of the Flagler County residents. She worked as his nurse in the of“ce, the operating room, and the emergency room at Bunnell General Hospital. She also did lab work and helped with many deliveries. Many times in emergency situations she would deliver a baby or stitch someone up. She was a divorced mother with three girls to raise. She worked outside of the home more than most women in her day. However she always made time to drive her girls and their teammates to their events. Miss Shirley was a huge sports fan. She played softball on the Bunnell city league along with her daughters. She loved the Boston Celtics and her beloved Larry Bird. She was an avid reader and loved dif“cult crossword puzzles. Miss Shirley enjoyed going to the beach with her friends. She was the great defender of those she loved and a “erce foe of those who came against her loves. She was intelligent, witty, loving, real, kind and tough. There are few that will come after her with the degree of passion, tenacity, devotion and grit she had. She was the essence of a strong woman way before it was acceptable or celebrated. She is predeceased by her grandsons, Troy Maher and David Abbott. She is survived by her devoted daughters, Theresa Davis, Francisca Abbott, and Maria Knight, and stepdaughter, Roberta Odom. She is also survived by her grandchildren that she adored, Charles Davis III (Deborah), Mac Davis (Leah), Mindy Abbott Diggan (Jeff), Robin Abbott Konopka (Brian), Steven Knight (Suzanne), Jackie Knight Austin (Bill), Kristin Knight White (Shane), 15 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. Please join us for a celebration of her life held in the sanctuary at Anastasia Baptist Church at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 14, 2018 followed by a reception in the atrium. In lieu of ”owers donations are appreciated to the Pine Mountain Settlement School in memory of Shirley Holbrook Blanton, at pinemountainsettleschool.com or 36 State Hwy 510, Bledsoe, KY 40810. Arrangements by St. Johns Family Funeral Home.George E. BurgessJudge George Edward Burgess, 87, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at his residence surrounded by his wife and family and his beloved pets. George was born on July 28, 1930 in Chicago to George E. Burgess and Anna Mae ne Morgan. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Donald. He is survived by his loving wife, Dorothy, and his three sons, Russell (Brenda), Thomas, and Kevin; his daughter, Natasha; his siblings, Eugene (Gloria), Edward (Sally), Virginia Cronk (Michael) and Annemarie Paulis (Bruce); his granddaughter, Anya Russell, and grandson, Pierson Davis; and his many nieces and nephews. George served his country with honors in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War. After completing his enlistment, he became a Chicago police of“cer, an FBI agent and a practicing attorney. He was appointed to the Federal Bench, Department of Justice in Maryland. George was a long-time resident of Lake Placid during his retirement. He enjoyed meeting with his fellow veterans at the Highlands County Veterans Service Of“ce. George was a member of the Lake Placid Elks Lodge 2661, American Legion Placid Post 25 and St. James Catholic Church. George was a true sportsman and enjoyed hunting, “shing and the outdoors.

GilsrudIt is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Larry G. Gilsrud on May 23, 2018 at the age of 67. He was at his home in Avon Park, Florida surrounded by family. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Larry proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy and was a brave veteran of the Vietnam War. Recently, he enjoyed his retirement in both Florida and Canada after a long career of working with seniors. Never one to sit idle, except during a Minnesota Vikings game, Larry was a “rm believer in hard work, but colleagues and friends alike greatly enjoyed his sharp sense of humor. Visitors could always expect a chat about current events over a cup of coffee and, if curious, an update on the national weather forecast. Larry and his authenticity will be missed dearly by many. Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Beverly (nee Hammerlund). He is survived by his loving wife, Carol McIsaac of New Brunswick, Canada; his beloved children, daughter, Angela (Chad Barclay) and son, Alex Gilsrud; and three precious grandchildren, Katelyn, Alyssa and Benjamin. Larry is also survived by brothers, Gary (Kathy), Rick, Tim (Carmen) and Brian (Danielle); sisters, Kathy Lindsay and Judy Soulier; step-mother, Pat; and nieces and nephews. In keeping with the wishes of Larry, who never sought attention nor wanted to be a burden, there will be no visitation or service. In lieu of ”owers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or a charity of your choice. The family wishes to thank his sundry caregivers, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and VITAS Hospice, for their compassionate care and support. Arrangements are under the direction of Dowden Funeral Home, 2605 Bayview St., Sebring, FL 33870. 863-385-1546.

We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words. Letters will be edited to length as well as for grammar and spelling. All letters must be signed with full name … not initials. An address and telephone number must be included. The phone number and address are not for publication, but must be provided. In the case of letters that are emailed, the same rules apply. According to the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, a chamber of commerce is an organization of businesses seeking to further their collective interests, while advancing their community, region, state or nation. Business owners in towns, cities and other territories voluntarily form these local societies/networks to advocate on behalf of the community at large, economic prosperity and business interests.Ž The associations de“nition of a chamber of commerce goes on to say that while most chambers work closely with government, they are not part of government although many consider the process of appropriately in”uencing elected/appointed of“cials to be one of their most important functions.Ž Thats where the line between government and civic duty begins to blur. Business people from all walks represent their communities on each of the boards at our area chambers of commerce, but government and elected of“cials are now “nding their way onto those boards. Recently a situation in Lake Placid quickly became a debate between a resident and a government of“cial/chamber board member. The debate stemmed from a desire to see businesses become more compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. On the other side of the debate was a government of“cial who also serves as a new member of the chamber board of directors. Having a government of“cial, or an elected of“cial, serve on a board of any civic organization has the potential to create a con”ict of interest. Whether it is a person who serves on a chamber board as well as the Tourist Development Council board, or a police chief who also serves on a chamber board, the possibility of a con”ict exists. Having elected of“cials or government of“cials serve on any board is a concentration of power that is simply not necessary. Passageways can also be opened to possible con”icts when one person serves on multiple boards. Chambers of commerce have the authority to represent their members in public policy debates. They can lobby and take positions on actual or proposed legislation, subject to local, state and federal laws. They can also legally endorse candidates for public of“ce. What happens if the candidate they choose to endorse is the opponent of one of their own board members? Lake Placids chamber board includes one who is a member of the School Board and Tourist Development Council, one who is the towns police chief, and one who is a town council member and candidate for the Board of County Commission. Two of the three mentioned own their own businesses in their respective community. Sebrings chamber board includes the attorney for the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce and the countys Economic Development Council manager. One of these board members who is an elected of“cial and a member of the TDC was quoted saying he liked the idea of having a designated fund in the TDCs budget for asset development and enhancement so that the County Commission, of which he is not a member, could then give public access to a lake in his community, where he serves as the president of the chamber board. Highlands County consists of three communities, each with its own chamber of commerce. These three communities are relatively small in size. Many businesses conduct business across the entire county, not just in the community where they are situated. It may be dif“cult for these cities to complete a board where no member is elected to of“ce, or is employed at a high level government job. Often times, it could be dif“cult to “nd additional quali“ed and interested people to serve on boards. We understand the dif“culties our chambers face, but if you are going the route of having an elected or government of“cial on your board, prudence demands that you make sure the rules are clear to all board members on who is the spokesman of the board. Weve all heard the saying about too many chiefs and not enough Indians. It is the business people of a community, not the politicians or government employees, who generate the commerce in their city. Elected and government of“cials are to serve their communities at the desire of their constituents.Possible conflictsMay has been a rough month for our Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce family. For the “rst time in more than 20 years, we lost a deputy in the line of duty when Deputy William Gentry was shot on May 6 and passed away a day later. The loss of Deputy Gentry was a jarring and tragic chapter in the nearly 100-year history of our agency. Deputy Gentry was the third person we lost in the line of duty, but it was the “rst time one of our deputies had been taken from us by the actions of a criminal. It was a jarring reminder of what everyone in law enforcement knows deep down inside but tries not to think about „ that each call can be your last. As dark as the days between Deputy Gentrys death and his funeral were for all of us, there was a bright and shining light that helped us make it through. That light came from you, our local community, and from people all over the country. Whether it was leaving ”owers at the memorial set up outside our of“ce in Sebring, making a donation to help the Gentry family, coming out to line the roads or simply just letting us know you were thinking of us, the support we received was welcomed. I cant count the number of people who reached out to us, and continue to do so. In addition to messages from here at home, we received hundreds of messages of support from all over the country and from people of all ages. Some of the most touching support came from our youngest residents. Several schools held fundraisers to help the Gentry family, and many of those were ideas that came from the students, not parents or teachers. If these children are any indication, our future is in good hands. Students also sent in dozens and dozens of cards and letters. Many of them were for the Gentry family speci“cally, but many more were just addressed to our deputies. We hung a lot of them up in the deputies room and had enough left over to put a card in each deputies mailbox. It just so happens that Deputy Gentrys funeral took place during National Police Week, so those cards and letters served a double purpose. I want to thank all of you who reached out to us this month. I also want to thank all the law enforcement of“cers „ some from as far away as California and Boston „ and elected of“cials who came to help us honor Deputy Gentry at his memorial service. I particularly want to thank Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd and Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott for going above and beyond in their assistance. To say their help was invaluable doesnt do it enough justice. For those of you who still want to help, you can make donations to the Gentry family through the Sheriffs Of“ce or you can also donate in his name to rescueranch.com, the charity the family has chosen in recognition of Deputy Gentrys love of his pets. Another way you can honor Deputy Gentrys memory is to register to be an organ donor. Even in death, Deputy Gentry was a hero and saved six lives through his organ donation. As many as 70 others will bene“t from his tissues. Our deputies will continue to wear the black mourning band over their badges until June 7, as tradition is to wear them for a month after the end of watch for a fallen member of your agency. But even when we take them off, we will never forget Deputy Gentry, just as we will never forget the outpouring of love and support we got from all of you. I speak for all of us here at the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce when I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will never know how much it meant to us. Paul Blackman is the Highlands County sheriff. Email him at pblackman@ highlandssheriff.org Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Thank you for all the support during our most difficult days Paul BlackmanFROM THE SHERIFF Thanks to all those who wrote in response to my column comparing this president and President Jimmy Carter. We are lucky to have the best newspaper readers in America. I am often asked by readers what I think of President Trump. My usual response is it is too early to tell. History will be the judge. The “rst President Bush was mocked and kicked out of of“ce. President HW Bush looks better all the time. If you still dont like the “rst Bush, I encourage you to read Jon Meachams excellent book, Destiny and Power.Ž If you dont like President Bush a bit more after reading Meachams book, let me know, and Ill pay for your copy. How do we have a conversation when we disagree about politics? I thought Michelle Wolfs remarks at the White House Correspondents Dinner were mean and personal … not funny. I wish reader TB had been the host. He rewrote Jimmy Carters speech I quoted in my column, the way TB imagined President Trump would have delivered it. Ill print just the “rst paragraph: I want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy „ CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation. Only I can reverse this trend, with the help of Sean Hannity and my Fox & Friends friends. I will educate you on the meaning of your own lives in a few days in a tweet.Ž Thanks, TB for your humor. We live in a democracy. We are supposed to disagree. It is the mean and personal nature of some of the language today that I “nd objectionable. We do need to be able to laugh at ourselves. Quite refreshing to read something bordering on a little support for our president by a member of the Fake News Society. Kudos!Ž „ JP Thanks, JP. I hope this president is successful. Maintain a strong economy. Keep us out of unnecessary wars. Be a good steward of taxpayer dollars. Make sure the succeeding generation of Americans has a reasonable chance of building a better life than their parents. But of course, with this de“nition, I hope all presidents are successful. President Trump is my president, just as President Obama was also my president. It will be dif“cult for this president to achieve his agenda. Read Ralph Ketchams biography of James Madison, and youll understand why Trumps success will be limited. Madison personally studied every confederacy in history. They all failed. He made sure to make the powers of the president strong enough to overcome the problems with democratic confederacies. Madison also personally studied every democracy in history. They all failed. He made sure to make the powers of the president weak enough to prevent a populist politician from becoming a dictator. It is hard to drain the swamp when the Constitution was carefully designed by Madison to preserve our fragile democracy by limiting the power of a populist politician. Our founders located our nations capital in an actual swamp and called it Washington DC. Presidents have been trying to drain the swamp ever since „ with limited success. Share your thoughts.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 www.highlandsnewssun.com MIAMI (AP) „ A storm moving slowly through the Gulf of Mexico is threatening to bring heavy rainfall, storm surges, high winds, and ”ash ”oods to the U.S. Gulf Coast this holiday weekend. Subtropical Storm Alberto the “rst named storm of the 2018 hurricane season roiled parts of coastal Mexico and Cuba with rip currents and dangerous surf before plodding northward Saturday. Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all 67 counties ahead of Alberto. Scott made the announcement on Saturday morning. At a brie“ng at the state emergency operations center in Tallahassee, authorities urged Floridians to take the storm seriously. Wes Maul, the states emergency management director, said timing of the storm is uncertain, but the entire state will feel the effects. Swelling riverbanks, tornadoes and localized ”ooding are possible. Highlands County Emergency Management of“cials said Saturday afternoon that the county was forecast to receive 3 to 7 inches of rain over the next “ve days, with locally higher rainfall possible in some areas. The storm, which county of“cials described as disorganized, was moving northward at about 10 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, an email advisory added. County of“cials were continuing to monitor Alberto. In the U.S., a storm surge watch meaning the possibility of life-threatening inundations from rising coastal waters moving inland was issued for a stretch of coastline between Horseshoe Beach, Florida, and the mouth of the Mississippi River. The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be ”ooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline,Ž the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Forecasters at the National Weather Service warned residents along coastal Alabama and Mississippi as well as the Florida Panhandle to brace for heavy rain and high winds. Isolated tornadoes were also possible. The NWS said a ”ash ”ood watch would be in effect from Saturday evening through Tuesday evening for southeastern Mississippi, much of southern Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle. This system will bring excessive rainfall to the watch area beginning Saturday evening and continuing through Tuesday evening. Rainfall amounts of 5 to 8 inches, and possibly locally up to double these amounts are possible in this area with this event,Ž the NWS said. A subtropical storm has a less de“ned and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes. Alberto comes ahead of schedule: the sixmonth hurricane season doesnt begin until June 1. Parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana have already seen heavy rain this week, and further deluges could leave those areas vulnerable to ”ash ”ooding and river ”ooding. Some beachfront and riverfront communities are already handing out sandbags. The downpours could dampen Memorial Day along Gulf beaches. Along with heavy rains and high winds come rough seas and a threat of rip currents from Florida to Louisiana that can sweep swimmers out to sea.Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the GulfASSOCIATED PRESS JOHN FITZHUGH/ THE SUN HERALD VIA APNicholas Filipich of Biloxi, Miss., shovels sand for sand bags into his grandfathers truck on Friday May 24.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com AVON PARK „ A woman no longer living with an Avon Park man has been charged with going into his car and taking his things. Darrisa Shambria Gibson, 25, originally of Avon Park, faces charges of burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and grand theft. According to arrest reports, she still has a key to the victims house and car „ despite not living with him for more than a year. Reports state that the victim alleges she used those keys to enter the car and house on previous occasions to take belongings. The most recent incident took place between 6:45-7 p.m. May 22 just before the victim called the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce, arrest reports said. The victim told deputies he parked his car in front of his house at 6:30 p.m. that day, and placed his wallet „ containing $400 „ in his center console. He had work uniforms for the Florida Department of Corrections in his trunk, he told deputies. The victim said he locked his car and left the house with the friend, reports said. Shortly after that, reports said, Gibsons brother „ who lives with the victim „ called him to say she was breaking into his car. The brother allegedly made a video recording of the incident, reports said. According to reports, the victim called his ex, who told him all his stuff was gone. Later, reports said, when he called her back, she denied taking anything. Items reported missing were: € Three pairs of dark blue work pants, at $30 each. € A pair of black work pants worth $25. € Two white, shortsleeve work shirts, at $35 each. € A white, long-sleeve work shirt worth $35. € A pair of black work boots worth $90. € A black work belt worth $10. € A bluetooth transmitter worth $20. € A bluetooth power cord worth $5. € A wallet with a Florida drivers license and $411 in cash. The brother showed deputies the video on his phone, reports said, but declined to give a written statement. When deputies talked with Gibson, she denied taking anything from the victim. She also said anything she did have was things he left in her car. She gave permission to search her car. In a backpack, reports said, deputies found the victims wallet, without the cash. According to reports, she said he had left that in her car a long time ago.Ex girlfriend charged in car burglaryBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER GIBSON Name: Scout Breed: Lab/bulldog puppy Sex: Male Info: Scout is a 10-weekold male lab/bulldog puppy.

Noethlich said that while no “nal cost was determined, it was fairly certain it would exceed $2 million. City Councilman Mark Stewart said it broke his heart to decide that.Ž But he added, We have a “scal responsibility to the citizens of Sebring.Ž A new roof, elevator repairs and bringing the building up to newer building code regulations would constitute big chunks of that, he indicated. Noethlich said the “rst two stories would have to be gutted to recon“gure the structure into a city hall. Besides the costs, some questioned as another issue whether opening a new city hall in that area “ts in with long-term plans for downtown Sebring. Some see adding downtown housing as more desirable. Yet others believe having City Hall, the police and “re departments and other of“ces close together would be good.CITYFROM PAGE 1sacri“ce for our freedoms. Retired Chief Petty Of“cer, U.S. Navy, Betsy Waddell, gives a more contemporary view on the importance of honoring the men and women who died for Americas freedom. Memorial Day is a day when we all get down on our knees, “guratively or literally, and thank God for those who gave the ultimate sacri“ce so that we can be free and that we can be here,Ž Waddell said. Those that have led and shown devotion to God and country, the total devotion. If we cannot realize that Memorial Day is for those who have answered the call and followed the ”ag, we wouldnt be speaking English,Ž she said. We wouldnt have the right to vote. We wouldnt have the our Constitution, our lives and freedom of speech without these people. We have a problem, if we dont honor these people, both men and women.Ž There are several traditions that are commonly observed on Memorial Day: On Memorial Day morning, ”ags are usually ”own at half mast until noon and then they are brought to their full mast. In an effort to foster unity in the nation, Congress established a National Moment of Remembrance, in which Americans pause for one minute at 3 p.m. The National Memorial Day Concert is played on the west lawn of the Capitol Building and pays tribute to fallen U.S. soldiers from all wars and con”icts. About half a million attend annually and countless soldiers listen to the broadcast from all over the world. Other ways to participate in the patriotic day is to visit a veterans cemetery, and help put ”ags on graves; go to a battle“eld and learn about what happened there for freedom; attend a parade and ”y an American or POW/MIA ”ag; make a donation to a patriotic organization such as the Wounded Warriors; visit with veterans who are home bound or in a living facility. Local celebrations include American Legion Post No. 25 in Lake Placid will have ”ag ceremony at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 28. The Lake Placid Elks will host a Memorial Day ceremony at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 28 at 200 C.R.621. Guest speakers include Mack Payne and Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler. Free hot dogs and chips will follow. In Sebring, American Legion Post No. 74 of Sebring will hold a ceremony at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 28 at Sebring Circle to honor those individuals who made the ultimate sacri“ce for our country. Veterans and the public are welcome to attend. The Military Order of the Purple Heart will hold a ceremony at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 28 at Veterans Beach in Sebring. The Sea Services Museum is holding a ceremony for Memorial Day and a 20th anniversary celebration at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 28 in Sebring.MEMORIALFROM PAGE 1They are all housed in the very real Lala Land,Ž the family farm where Crutch“eld and an army of volunteers care, train and breed animals for education and conservation purposes. Lala LandŽ is named after the dromedary camel called Lala. Crutch“eld is the chief cook and bottle washer at TLC Therapy Hooves in Lake Placid. In 2011, this animal and people lover combined her passions for animals and the community to form the 501 (c)3 non-pro“t organization and bring well-trained animals to several nursing homes and assisted living facilities to bring smiles to the residents there. The visits from the animals are free for the facilities. Crutch“eld didnt let the seemingly insurmountable amounts of paperwork, USDA licensing, hours of training, and the expense deter her from obtaining her hearts desire. Miniature ponies and other animals get dolled up the day before an outing called a splish splash day.Ž A slew of volunteers bathe, comb, braid and paintŽ hooves in preparation for their workŽ day. The animals get a bit of personi“cation with ruf”es, bows, sequins and more. They even wear shoes to protect their „ well „ shoes. Build a Bear Workshop shoes seem to work perfect for most of the animals. While Cruch“eld gladly accepts a donation, she chuckles and asks how many hooves do horses have when one pair is donated. Looking around the 50-acre farm and all of the exotic animals that are housed there, it is hard to believe that it all started with one tiny pig named Precious the Pig. The story Crutch“eld tells and the way the story really goes is basically the same „ except for calling Precious her husbands birthday present and a lot of batting eyelashes. Seeing the couple together, it is easy to see that Scott will pretty much agree to whatever scheme his wife has planned next. The high school sweethearts have been married for over 30 years and their marriage is a happy one, even after that tiny pig grew to nearly 400 pounds. Needless to say, Precious also caused them to move from suburbia to the 50 acres of Lala Land.Ž I was the crazy lady, walking her pigs through town,Ž Crutch“eld said at a recent luncheon. I knew that Golf Hammock was no place to raise a pig. We needed to move out to the country. Luckily I knew a good Realtor.Ž While Terri Lynn Crutch“eld admits to coming up with the crazy ideas, she said she couldnt bring them to fruition without volunteers (in the hot pink shirts).

LOCAL SPORTSRicciardo has pole for Monaco Grand PrixVettel edges Hamilton for 2nd on final qualifying lapIts one thing to have the best car, quite Fortunately for Red Bull, while Max Verstappen threw his weekend away with a big crash in Free Practice 3, his teammate Daniel Ricciardo delivered when it mattered to take a sensational pole in Monaco for todays Monaco Grand Prix. Red Bull had looked strong all week, securing one-twos in all three practice sessions with Ricciardo just ahead of his teammate. They should have had the front row to themselves, but instead bookend the grid, with Verstappen set to start from last after failing to set a lap time „ the result of his car, which needed a new gearbox after his practice shunt „ not being ready in time. But while Verstappen was MIA, Ricciardo smashed it out of the park with a lap from the very top drawer. To reiterate his speed, he pumped in another lap in the 1:10s. No one could come close. Mercedes have looked distinctly third-best in Monaco so far this weekend, but Hamilton looked to have sprung a surprise in second, only for his title rival Sebastian Vettel to snatch the position with his “nal run. The other Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen was fourth, ahead of Valtteri Bottas with Esteban Ocon a brilliant sixth in the Force India and Fernando Alonso seventh in the McLaren. Renaults Carlos Sainz, the other Force India of Sergio Perez and Toro Rossos Pierre Gasly completed the top 10. All eyes were on the Red Bull garage as qualifying kicked off.

All “shing factors considered, this months full moon will be weak, clouded dominated and therefore great for the midday angler. The reason “sh bite more during the full moon phases is due to two factors. First, the full moon causes greater solar energy periods during the two days before, the day of, and the two days after its occurrence, and second, bright moonlight greatly enables “sh to feed far more successfully at night. During full moon phases, daytime anglers success rates depend completely on nighttime cloud-cover percentages; the more it happens the greater the daytime “shing will be. And conversely, the fewer clouds, the more “sh feed at night, causing the daytime feeding activity to be weak at best. This is why I have always said, rainy season full moons are the best full moon phases of the year. The midday sunshine always produces excellent full-moon midday-“shing due to the full moon being clouded over all night by the rainy season weather pattern. So over the next four to “ve days, the best “shing periods will occur when bright sunlight breaks through the cloud cover, especially during the midday hours when the full moon is underfoot„overhead in China „ and the sun is overhead, causing a three-hour burst or spike in the suns energy levels in the atmosphere. Water temperatures are now in the upper part of the ideal temperature range of 70-85 degrees.

Metabolisms are at top speed, and our lakes dissolved oxygen (D.O.) rates are still in the ideal feeding range of 6 parts per million (ppm) or better. When D.O. rates drop below 5 ppm during July through September, “sh move deeper in lakes which provide depths of 12 feet or more. In shallow type lakes, such as Istokpoga, “sh cant access deep enough water to “nd higher D.O. levels which occur in the ideal temperatures of the lower depths. Thus, “sh lose weight without adequate oxygen to enable digestion and appetite. Best Fishing Days: Tuesday and Wednesdays midday hours will produce best during the “rst half of this week. The Major Fishing Period: The moon is underfoot today at 11:58 a.m. and solar noon occurs at 1:23 p.m. causing a feed intensity rating of 5-6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday a rating of 6-7 will occur from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Minor Fishing Period: When the midnight full moon is clouded over, it can cause the sunrise and sunset periods to produce moderate to weak feeding activity in the 3-4 rating range. Since well have plenty of clouds to block the moon, I believe its worth “shing the 6-8 a.m. and 7-9 p.m. hours. Prime Monthly Periods: May 27-31, full moon; June 10-16, almost super new moon; June 26-30, weak full moon; July 10-16, super new moon, July 24-29 weak full moon.

The game winner came in Pagenauds response. Going to great detail, he arranged for Indianapolis police of“cers to pull Newgarden over as he left the track. In the sneakiest of fashions, Pagenaud also arranged for GoPro cameras to be placed in Newgardens car under the guise of a video crew seeking to record the reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champions personal travels for a “ctional project.

The Ferraris were his closest challengers, but they were a staggering fourtenths adrift. Traf“c was a problem for everyone, with most drivers complaining on team radio that they had their lap compromised at some point during the lap, but the stewards chose not to investigate any driver for blocking. Valtteri Bottas left it late to escape the drop zone, but Toro Rossos Brendon Hartley „ who complained that a Force India had tried to put him in the wall „ was eliminated along with Saubers Marcus Ericsson, Williams Lance Stroll and Haass Kevin Magnussen, who was eliminated in Q1 for the “rst time this year. Mercedes rolled the dice in Q2 as they chose to “t both Hamilton and Bottas with the ultrasoft tires, while everyone else opted to continue on the quicker hypersofts. Theres around a second between the two compounds, so it was a high-risk strategy that might have paid off handsomely in the race. But after a single run, Hamilton described the rubber as terribleŽ and they abandoned the play, returning to the pinkmarked hypersofts for their “nal runs. Ricciardo looked strong once more. Not content with his table topping “rst lap, the Australian headed back out and improved his benchmark once more, moving just over a tenth clear of Raikkonen, as Ferrari appeared more threatening. Vettel and the two Mercedes safely made it through, ahead of the two Force Indias who emerged as best of the rest in qualifying trim. But Gasly was arguably the star of this segment, the Toro Rosso driver scraping into the top 10, at the expense of Renaults Nico Hulkenberg. McLarens Stoffel Vandoorne, Williams Sergey Sirotkin, Saubers local hero Charles Leclerc and Haass Romain Grosjean also failed to make the cut. Ferrari looked like they may threaten Red Bull for pole, but Ricciardo was having none of it in Q3. His “rst lap out of the box was epic, the Australian becoming the “rst driver „ and as it turned out only driver „ to break into the 1:10s, smashing the track record in the process. He then asked how much are we quickest by?Ž He neednt have worried, with a stunning four-tenths of a second tucked in his pocket. He went again and clocked a lap that was just 0.036s slower than his benchmark. It didnt matter. He still had a 0.25s lead. After heading out late, Vettel improved on his second run to jump Hamilton and go second quickest. The Briton had brie”y set the timing screens purple in sector one on his “nal run, but in the end faded as the lap went on, with an error at the last corner the “nal nail in the cof“n. Still, with Mercedes looking a distinct third best this weekend, Hamilton will be pleased to have split the Ferraris. The second Silver Arrow of Bottas settled for “fth behind Raikkonen, as Ocon took a brilliant sixth. But the day belonged to Ricciardo, who took just his second career pole position „ and Red Bulls “rst since Monaco two years ago.

Nation Western RegionalThirty-“ve anglers and 35 co-anglers were eager to get out on Clear Lake for the “nal day of competition of the 2018 Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Nation Western Regional presented by Magellan Outdoors. And with the monster largemouth swimming these waters and ideal “shing conditions, they all felt they could win the event. Arizona team member Jacob Shull made one of the largest moves of the contest. Shull jumped from 72nd place after Day 1 to 17th on Day 2, and he found himself in the winners seat when the dust settled following the “nal round. I caught a small limit in the area I “shed throughout the tournament on Day 1,Ž explains Shull, but my co-angler didnt have any bass so I moved around to try and help him get some “sh. I ended up with only 10 pounds after the “rst day. I started there again on Day 2, and my co-angler had 8 pounds in the boat before I caught anything. After watching and learning I went to work and caught 17-2. On the “nal day my gut feeling was to do the same thing, and I ended with 21 pounds, 11 ounces.Ž This gave the Willcox, Arizona angler a threeday total weight of 49-4. Shull, who spent the entire contest “shing a main-lake tule point “ve minutes from Konocti Vista Marina, caught the majority of his “sh on weightless, Texas-rigged Senkos. His baits of choice were 5-inch green pumpkin with copper ”ake and watermelon with purple ”ake. Winning this tournament means a lot because I had to take it just one day at a time,Ž says Shull, who was “shing Clear Lake for the “rst time. A buddy of mine, who has been a lot of help to me, told me Id have a good chance to make it to the Western Regional. And it was unreal to be able to do it with my family here to watch.Ž For Shulls efforts he earned a $5,500 share of the $33,000 winnings paid out at the Western Regional Championship. While the winning boater climbed the ladder to claim victory, the co-angler champion held his “rst-place position every day of the contest. In practice I picked up a weightless, Texas-rigged Senko because its a bait that I have con“dence in,Ž said co-angler victor Quincy Grupenhoff. I was catching so many “sh that I stopped throwing it because the baits are so expensive. But theyre all I used, along the tules that we were “shing, on the “rst and second days of the tournament. Today my boater was “shing more offshore, and I knew he was around “sh because he was leading, but I couldnt get bit. So I switched to a wacky rig and caught a “sh on the third cast „ every bass there after came on the fall.Ž Grupenhoff explained that this win was extra special because he always told his kindergarten teacher, who passed away last year, that he wanted to be a professional bass “sherman. And all of the baits that he caught “sh on this week had some shade of purple, her favorite color, in it. He ended the tournament with a three-day total weight of 29-1 besting second-place Loren Bryant of Phoenix, who “nished with a nine-bass limit of 29-1. For Grupenhoffs win on the co-angler side he collected $2,750. Big Bass of the tournament was a 10-7 caught by Lane Coale on the boaters side, earning the Colorado angler a $500 award. There was a three-way tie for co-angler Big Bass award, with Utahs Tate Brown, Idahos Anthony Ocamica and Grupenhoff each bringing in 6 pound, 11 ounce largemouths. The trio split $250. Shulls and Grupenhoffs wins, along with the “rst place “nishers from each of the other 10 state teams on the boater and co-angler sides, all qualify to “sh in the 2018 Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S.

Caleb Gibson and Tyler Winn tapped into a bass “shing strategy now in play in their native Oklahoma to win the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Western Tour presented by Bass Pro Shops at Clear Lake, California. Before coming here the word was all about sight “shing for the 10 pounders and throwing big swimbaits along the shoreline,Ž said Gibson. We had never even heard of some of the best baits to use.Ž The anglers from Northeastern State University stocked up on local lures, launched their boat after the 30-hour drive and went “shing with high hopes. All it took was one practice day for reality to sink in. The bass were small and stubborn to bite. There was no way that we were going to spend an hour or more on trying to catch the same bedding “sh,Ž said Gibson, 18, a freshman majoring in marketing. That, and the shorelines were getting hammered by other contestants and had been for several weeks.Ž Reverting back to prevailing postspawn “shing patterns in Oklahoma paid off with the win.

The News Wire Sunday, May 27, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Scouts honor veterans for Memorial Day with gravesite flagsSee page 8 ST. PETERSBURG „ Florida and Mississippi launched emergency preparations Saturday ahead of the arrival of Subtropical Storm Alberto, a slow-moving system expected to cause wet misery across the eastern U.S. Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend. Cuba was being pounded by rain along its western coast, raising the threat of ”ash ”oods and mudslides. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the islands rain totals could reach 10 to 15 inches „ and even 25 inches in isolated areas. Heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday. The Florida Keys could see as much as 10 inches of rain, the hurricane center said. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of Florida and Alabama. About 5 to 10 inches of rain are possible along affected areas in eastern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, western Tennessee and the western Florida Panhandle. Isolated areas could see as much as 15 inches. Under overcast skies and occasional drizzle, several Gulfport, Mississippi, residents lined up to “ll 10and 20-pound bags with sand they will use to block any encroaching ”oodwater expected as a result of Alberto. Tommy Whitlock said HONOLULU (AP) „ Damage to the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu was worse than expected and it will remain closed inde“nitely, of“cials said. Boat transportation to the attraction was suspended May 6 after one of the vessel operators noticed a crack on the outside of the memorial, Hawaii News Now reported Tourists were allowed to disembark at the memorial after crews completed interim repairs. But the cracks reappeared hours later, indicating a more serious issue. There is a brow or an edge where the visitor ramp meets the memorial, and at that point, theres been some “ssures located on the exterior,Ž said Jay Blount, a spokesman for the World War II Valor in the Paci“c National Monument. After further investigation on the interior, it was determined that the structure is not supporting the loading ramp the way that we need.Ž Engineers are working to “gure out Gulf in state of emergency as Alberto heads northBy TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSSEOUL, South Korea „ The leaders of North and South Korea met Saturday in an effort to resurrect talks between Washington and Pyongyang, continuing their close coordination despite the apparent breakdown in U.S.-North Korean diplomacy. White House of“cials said they were informed of the two-hour meeting in advance, and indicated that they remain open to a direct summit between President Donald Trump and North Koreas leader, Kim Jong Un. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced Saturday morning that a logistical team bound for Singapore, led by Trumps deputy chief of staff, Joe Hagin, will leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place.Ž And Trump suggested in a Saturday Twitter post that he remained eager as well, pushing back against an unidenti“ed of“cial from the White House who called the June 12 summit date impossibleŽ for logistical reasons. WRONG AGAIN!Ž Trump wrote. The meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in was revealed by the South Korean presidents of“ce. The apparent purpose was to continue inter-Korean dialogue and to salvage a potential meeting between Kim and Trump, who this past week canceled a scheduled summit in Singapore with the North. They exchanged opinions for implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration and for the successful realization of U.S.-North Korea summit,Ž said Yoon Young-chan, a spokesman for Moon.With US talks in limbo, Korean leaders hold surprise summitUSS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor closedBy NOAH BIERMAN and MATT STILESLOS ANGELES TIMESDUBLIN „ In the end, it wasnt even close. Irish voters „ young and old, male and female, farming types and city-bred folk „ endorsed expunging an abortion ban from their largely Catholic countrys constitution by a two-toone margin, referendum results compiled Saturday showed. The decisive outcome of the landmark referendum held Friday exceeded expectations and was cast as a historic victory for womens rights. Polls had given the pro-repeal yesŽ side a small lead, but suggested the contest would be close. Since 1983, the now-repealed Eighth Amendment had forced women seeking to terminate pregnancies to go abroad for abortions, bear children conceived through rape or incest or take illegal measures at home. As the “nal tally was announced showing over 66 percent of voters supported lifting the ban, crowds in the ancient courtyard of Dublin Castle began chanting Savita! Savita!Ž in honor of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old dentist who died of sepsis during a protracted miscarriage after being denied an abortion at a Galway hospital in 2012. With exit polls showing a win for abortion rights campaigners, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called the apparent victory the culmination of a quiet revolution.Ž Later, he hailed the momentous outcome as a victory for Irelands future. I said in recent days that this was a once in a generation vote. Today I believe we have voted for the next generation,Ž said Varadkar, who is Irelands “rst openly gay leader as well as its “rst prime minister from an ethnic minority group. The next battleground is likely to be Irelands parliament, where the government led by Varadkar hopes to capitalize on the fresh momentum and enact legislation spelling out the conditions under which abortions will be legal for the “rst time by the end of this year. The plan is to allow abortions during the “rst WASHINGTON „ Joshua Holt, who traveled to Venezuela from Utah in 2016 to marry a Spanishspeaking Mormon woman but soon found himself jailed and later branded the CIAs top spy in Latin America, was set free by the anti-American Maduro government on Saturday in what his family called this miracle.Ž The release of Holt and his wife, Thamara Caleno, and their departure for Washington came one day after an in”uential U.S. senator held a surprise meeting in Caracas with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who the Trump administration says runs a dictatorshipŽ and just won re-election in a shamŽ vote. Their get-together was the result of months of secret, backchannel talks between an aide to Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and close allies of Maduro. Yet Holts release had seemed unlikely even a week ago. President Donald Trump, in a tweet, described Holt as a hostageŽ and said he expected to host Holt and his family Quiet revolution leads to abortion rights win in IrelandAmerican jailed in Venezuela for 2 years now on his way homeBy GREGORY KATZ, RENATA BRITO and LEO ENRIGHTASSOCIATED PRESSBy CATHERINE LUCEY and JOSHUA GOODMANASSOCIATED PRESS JAILED | 4 RIGHTS | 4 ALBERTO | 4 ARIZONA | 4SUMMIT | 4 HOLT FAMILY PHOTO VIA APIn this image provided by the Holt family, Joshua Holt, his wife Thamara and her daughter, board a plane at the airport in Caracas, Venezuela, Saturday.

Marches and rallies were also held in dozens of other French cities as part of the joint action against Macrons economic policies that organizers consider brutalŽ and imbalanced. At the Paris event, Philippe Martinez, head of leading French union CGT, advised the president to look out the window of his palace to see real life.Ž Police estimated that 21,000 people took part in the Paris protest, while CGT put the number at 80,000. More than 1,500 police of“cers were mobilized in the French capital to prevent activists not associated with the of“cial protest from disrupting the march and causing damage, which has happened during previous recent demonstrations. Police said they detained 39 people in Paris before and after the march started, including 26 were put into custody. Most of them were preemptively taken in for questioning after of“cers searched their bags and found equipmentŽ that could be used to cause damage or to hide their faces. A few others, mainly youths dressed in black with their faces covered, were detained on the sidelines of the main protest for breaking a window at a business or damaging bus shelters. Police used tear gas canisters to push them back. Seven of“cers were slightly injured mainly by thrown debris. Unions, opposition parties and other groups were particularly denouncing a Macronled overhaul of labor rules that would reduce worker protections and laws increasing police powers. They allege that Macron supports tax reform that favors Frances wealthiest and is working to tear down public services.

The area in southwestern Syria, between the border city of Daraa and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, has emerged as a ”ashpoint in a wider standoff between regional archrivals Israel and Iran. The U.S., Russia, and Jordan agreed last year to include Daraa in a de-escalation zoneŽ to freeze the lines of con”ict. But government forces have recently dropped lea”ets on rebel-held areas warning of an imminent offensive and urging “ghters to lay down their arms, Syrian state media said Friday. In a statement released Friday, the U.S. State Department said it was concerned by reports that Assads forces were preparing for an operation in southwestern Syria. It warned the government against any actions that risk broadening the con”ict.Ž Assad has relied on Russia, Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah to battle an uprising against his familys decades-long rule and roll-back an Islamic State insurgency that grew out of the countrys seven-year civil war. Iran has sent military commanders to oversee battles and organize militias from across the Middle East to “ght alongside Assads troops. Lea”ets dropped on northern Daraa, which is divided between rebel and government-controlled areas, warned: The men of the Syrian army are coming.Ž MOSCOW (AP) „ Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met in Moscow on Saturday for talks that included resolving a dispute over four Paci“c islands and eventually signing a peace treaty. Abe has been pushing for a way forward in the dispute that centers on the four most southern of the Kuril Islands, which Japan calls the Northern Territories. The Soviet Union took the islands in the closing days of World War II. The dispute has kept the two countries from signing a peace treaty formally ending World War II hostilities. Japan is seeking to implement joint business projects on the Kuril Islands as a way to gain momentum to resolve the dispute. The Japanese and the Russians will be able to reap the fruits of the joint work on the islands,Ž Abe said. If we cooperate, we can achieve great results that bring mutual bene“t.Ž Putin said after the meeting that a Japanese business delegation would visit the islands this year.

Five seismic survey companies want federal permission to shoot loud, pressurized air blasts into the ocean every 10 to 12 seconds aroundthe-clock for months at a time over 330,000 square miles of ocean from Florida to the Delaware bay, in search of fossil fuel deposits beneath the ocean ”oor. If approved, the activity would reverse an Obamaera denial of testing permits in the Atlantic Ocean and represent a major advance of Trumps America-First Offshore Energy Strategy.Ž After the public-comment period ended in July 2017, many stakeholders expected the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to quickly approve the incidental harassment authorizationsŽ needed to move the permit applications forward. But more than 10 months later, NOAA, one of two federal agencies that will decide the matter, still hasnt approved the authorizations. The IHA would allow the seismic testing to harass or injure small numbers of marine mammals, which would otherwise be prohibited under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Scientists fear long-term exposure to air-blast noise could cause hearing loss and impair breeding, feeding, foraging and communication activity among dolphins, endangered whales, other marine mammals and sea turtles. While the Marine Mammal Protection Act sets a 120-day statutory review period to decide IHA applications, some require more analysis, consultation and resources that can exceed the 4-month time period. From 2011 through 2016, the average processing time for IHA applications was 7.5 months, according to written Senate testimony from Chris Oliver, assistant administrator for “sheries at NOAA. But after executive orders from Trump called for reducing regulatory burden, NOAA committed to cutting IHA processing times. Since implementing new streamlining measures, like waiving legal reviews for low impact/ low controversy actions not expected to be at risk of litigation,Ž the average processing time overall fell to 6.6 months for IHAs issued from December 2016 to November 2017, Olivers written testimony said. The authorizations for the Atlantic, however, are proving more of a challenge. Were in the process of evaluating over 117,000 comments that we received on that, many of them of a highly technical, legal, policy nature. So that process has taken a little bit longer than we expect. But we expect within the next few weeks to have made a decision on those authorizations,Ž Oliver told a Senate panel on April 25. One month later, the energy industry is still waiting. And it is openly chiding the Trump administration over the slow process. In a recent blog post, Nikki Martin, president of the International Association of Geophysical Contractors and Randall Luthi, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, said the permitting delay is a complete bureaucratic breakdown by federal agencies in what should be an otherwise straightforward process. Approve or deny is simple and clear.Ž If the authorizations are granted, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management would then have to complete an environmental study before they decide whether to approve the “nal testing permits. There is no timeline for the environmental study. While some lawmakers and business leaders have raised concerns about the economic effect that seismic testing and offshore drilling could have on Atlantic Coast toursim and “shing, the energy industry has largely cheered President Trumps push to expand offshore drilling. In January, the Interior Department announced plans to hold 47 offshore oil and gas lease sales from 2019 to 2024. That includes 19 off the coast of Alaska, seven off the coast of California, 12 in the Gulf of Mexico and nine in the Atlantic Ocean, where there have been no sales since 1983 and there are no existing leases. Seismic testing became a moot issue after President Barack Obama removed the Atlantic Ocean from the nations “ve-year program for oil and gas development in March 2016. Later that year, Obama also barred drilling in environmentally sensitive areas of the Atlantic from Virginia to Maine. Then, in one of its “nal acts, the Obama administration in January 2017 denied all pending Atlantic Ocean testing permits. But Trump signed an executive order in April 2017 that would reverse these policies. In addition to opening up millions of acres of coastal waters for oil and gas leasing, Trump also called for streamlining the application process for seismic testing permits. A December 2017 GAO report found that National Marine Fisheries Service, a division of NOAA, couldnt accurately provide the dates when they determined IHA applications were adequate and completeŽ because the agency doesnt specify how or when staff should record this data. The agency is currently working on that new guidance, according to Olivers testimony. But the regulatory delays are taking a toll. Considering that the Marine Mammal Protection Act, or MMPA, requires agencies to issue decisions within 120 days after deeming IHA applications complete, this delay is a shocking policy failure,Ž Martin and Luthis blog post said. Luthi, Martin and representatives of other industry groups, like the American Petroleum Institute and the International Association of Drilling Contractors, support passage of the Streamlining Environmental Approvals Act (HR 3133), sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La. The legislation would amend the Marine Mammal Protection Act and deem permit applications dealing with offshore oil and gas exploration to be approvedŽ if the processing time exceeded 120 days. The bill, which was assailed by environmental groups for weakening protections for marine mammals, was passed by the House Committee on Natural Resources in January. But it hasnt been voted on by the full House where Democrats and some coastal state Republicans oppose seismic testing as a prelude to offshore drilling. In an email statement, Oceana, an international ocean conservation group, said scrapping the small numbersŽ requirement in the Marine Mammals Protection Act would remove one of the precautionary standards that Congress recognized is necessary to prevent the extinctionŽ of marine mammals. We cannot trade away protections for our treasured marine life just because the oil and gas industry sometimes “nds them inconvenient,Ž wrote Diane Hoskins, Oceanas campaign director. In his testimony, Oliver said the NOAA is considering other ideas to further streamline the permitting process. These include increasing the maximum time period for IHAs beyond the current one-year limit and removing the requirement that only small numbersŽ of marine mammals can be harassed or injured under an IHA. The agency is also considering removing the requirement that IHAs apply only in a speci“ed geographical region.Ž There may be circumstances where the impacts of an activity on marine mammals is similar across multiple regions,Ž Olivers written testimony said.Delayed seismic testing decision puts energy industry at odds with Trump administrationBy TONY PUGHMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU LAS VEGAS „ Firsthand accounts by Las Vegas police of“cers about their roles in the mass shooting last October that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds at an outdoor concert were released this week, offering a new perspective on the deadliest mass shooting in modern America. It was the third major release this month in response to a public records request and a court ruling requiring the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to provide documents, body camera footage and 911 call records. Wednesdays release of about 2,000 pages included more witness statements and interviews with staff at the Mandalay Bay hotel „ where the shooter was staying and carried out the slaughter. More materials are expected to be released in the coming weeks. Dozens of the of“cers reports paint a harrowing „ yet often a more clinical „ view of what happened that night when Stephen Paddock opened “re from his 32nd-”oor suite „ taking aim at 22,000 attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Of“cers described feeling fear. One questioned God. Amid the chaos, another recounted remembering seemingly trivial items „ like a victim looking for his friend while still clutching a can of Bud Light. Some of the reports are short „ just a few lines. Others are detailed, with a few leading into the shooting by describing what they were doing prior to tragedy. One was busting prostitutes. Another was on a jog near his home. Some were working security for a Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL preseason game. One of“cer had spent the day celebrating his childs birthday. There were accounts of bravery and heroism amid the tragedy, and some of“cers used their reports to praise the actions of others „ including a recruit at the scene who began performing “rst aid immediately. But there were also accounts of frustration at some who got in the way of “rst responders. None imagined what they were going to see that night. A few of“cers noted having to decide on the spot whether to help the wounded or try to stop the shooter. One report included ideas for tactics that might have helped save lives, including the use of smoke canisters that could have made it harder for Paddock to pick out targets. There were accounts of hospitals over”owing with patients. The hospital went from smelling like blood and death to smelling of bleach,Ž an of“cer observed. Here is a sampling of what some saw and how they felt responding to the Oct. 1 shooting: I was terri“ed. I questioned God, Why? Why am I going to die today? I dont want to die. This is what I was trained for? I have to see this? Why? I dont want to do this anymore. I thought, I want to run, look theres a “eld, you can run, “nd a street, call a cab, leave, go home!Ž Of“cer A. Mitre wrote. Then I said to myself, how hard have you worked, the academy, the badge, the love you have for people, you have to help, you might die, thats okay, you cant go, you have to stop the threat, you have to save them.Ž At this point, I believed I would probably die, as all I had was concealment from a fabric tent,Ž Of“cer P. Zaragoza wrote. I continued to make tourniquets, overwhelmed by seemingly dozens of individuals bleeding out, waited for a pause in the gun“re so I could run to gear up, and hoped that if I was shot, it would be in my body, not my head.Ž The “rst victim I came across was a female in her 20s not breathing,Ž Of“cer D. Hunkins wrote. I immediately started chest compressions and an unknown male was giving the victim breaths. We worked for several minutes on the female before a member of Medic West checked her vitals. The medic stated: She is dead.

I only have my Glock 40 caliber and Im probably up against a fully stocked assault team with tactical gear. I thought about my wife and kids, would I ever see them again. I looked to my right and there were three or four men doing chest compressions on a female who had been shot in the head. Ive seen enough death in my 15 years on the job that I knew she was gone, but I was not about to say anything to those brave men.Ž Around 10:39 p.m. I called my family and said, Im ok.Ž Of“cer J. Parker wrote. I must have sounded not ok though.Ž As I got home I found it was hard to process what had happened. I just sat in my bed thinking that I hoped what Ive done was enough,Ž Of“cer S.

I grabbed him and pulled him back to safety, he promptly stood up again and continued to ”ip off the shooter. I pulled him back a second time and he demanded my patrol ri”e again. He then grabbed onto my ri”e with both hands in an attempt to wrest it away from me. I punched him one time in the jaw with my left hand causing him to let go and lay down ”at on his back in a supine position.Ž I could feel my mouth was extremely dry and cotton mouth and I had no spit. I also felt myself starting to get tunnel vision and I can remember concentrating on tactical breathing to calm myself,Ž Field Training Of“cer C.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) „ Someone has paid big bucks for some vintage denim in Maine. An auctioneer in Maine said the 125-year-old jeans that failed to sell at auction in 2016 now have a new owner somewhere in southeast Asia. Daniel Buck Soules from Daniel Buck Auctions in Lisbon Falls said the Levi Strauss & Co. blue jeans from the American Old West sold for nearly $100,000. He said his agreement with the buyer precluded him from providing the buyers location or the exact cost of those jeans. The cotton jeans with button ”y were worn only a few times. They were purchased in 1893 by a store keeper in the Arizona Territory and ended up spending decades in a trunk.

Opponents of the repeal movement conceded defeat Saturday morning after exit polls from the night before suggested they had no hope of victory. John McGuirk, spokesman for the Save the 8th group, told RTE that many Irish citizens would not recognize the country in which they were waking up. The group said on its website that the referendum was a tragedy of historic proportions,Ž but McGuirk said the vote must still be respected. You can still passionately believe that the decision of the people is wrong, as I happen to do, and accept it,Ž he said. The “nal tally showed that just over 66 percent of voters who cast valid ballots wanted the Eighth Amendment abolished. Exit polls indicated that both men and women strongly opposed the abortion ban, and that opposition to it was strong in rural areas, not just cosmopolitan Dublin. The support for lifting the ban highlights the liberalization of traditionally Catholic Ireland, marking the diminishing in”uence of the Church hierarchy and a desire to align Irish secular laws with the other countries of Europe. First it was same-sex marriage, approved here in 2015, and now it will be the consignment to history of the Eighth Amendment, which banned nearly all abortions and turned women seeking them into pariahs. This is a monumental day for women in Ireland,Ž Orla OConnor, co-director of the Together for Yes group, said. This is about women taking their rightful place in Irish society, “nally.Ž The mood was jubilant at Dublins Intercontinental Hotel, where supporters of the Together For Yes group spent hours watching the vote tally come in from the countrys 40 districts. In the end, 39 voted for repeal. Some supporters had tears of joy running down their cheeks, and many women hugged each other. Cheers erupted every time partial results were shown on two big screens transmitting the latest television news. When the “nal count was announced at Dublin Castle, more than 1,000 people were gathered outside singing, chanting and toasting each other with champagne despite an intermittent light rain. They cheered when leaders of the yesŽ campaign surfaced and they cheered for the prime minister when he arrived. For many, the victory was vindication after years of opposing the abortion ban, which required Irish authorities to defend the lives of a woman and a fetus as equals under the law from the moment of conception. In practical terms, the amendment outlawed all abortions until 2014, when terminations in rare cases when a womans life was at risk started being allowed. Irish Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone said she was deeply moved by the vote. The vote in the Republic of Ireland may increase pressure on Northern Ireland to follow suit. When abortion becomes legal in the Republic of Ireland, it will become the only part of Britain and Ireland to ban the procedure. Abortions approved by doctors are allowed in the rest of Britain until the 24th week of pregnancy, but not in Northern Ireland, where the procedure is limited to cases when a womans life is at risk. Irelands prime minister noted that Saturdays win for legalizing abortion could not right past wrongs, but could prevent future ones. The wrenching pain of decades of mistreatment of Irish women cannot be unlived,Ž Varadkar, who backed repeal, said. However, today we have ensured that it does not have to be lived again.ŽRIGHTSFROM PAGE 1at the White House on Saturday evening. Good news about the release,Ž he wrote. The U.S. contended Holt was held on trumped up charges. The White House learned from Corker, R-Tenn., on Friday of Holts impending release, according to a U.S. of“cial who has closely followed Holts plight and spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private talks. Holt and his wife were reunited at the Caracas airport with her daughter from a previous relationship, and all three boarded a chartered ”ight to Washington. We are on our way home,Ž Corker tweeted. Venezuelas communications minister, Jorge Rodriguez, said their release was a goodwill gesture that followed months of dialogue between the Maduro government and U.S. lawmakers. Were praying that this type of gesture ... will allow us to strengthen what weve always sought: dialogue, harmony, respect for our independence and respect for our sovereignty,Ž he said. Holt, now 26, set out for the South American country in June 2016 to marry a woman he met online while he was looking for Spanishspeaking Mormons who could help him improve his Spanish. He had planned to spend several months in Caracas that summer with his new wife and her two daughters, to secure their visas so they could move with him to the U.S. Instead, the couple was arrested that June 30 at her familys apartment in a government housing complex on the outskirts of Caracas. Authorities accused him of stockpiling an assault ri”e and grenades, and suggested that his case was linked to other unspeci“ed U.S. attempts to undermine Maduros rule amid deep economic and political turbulence. They were held in a notorious Caracas prison, run by the secret police, that also is home to dozens of top Maduro opponents jailed during the past few years of political unrest in the country. Their trial was set to begin this month after repeated delays that led the Trump administration to question the motives for his detention. Until Trumps tweet on Saturday, the U.S. had stopped short of publicly calling Holt a hostage.Ž Holts release looked unlikely a week ago, when he appeared in a clandestinely shot video railing against the Maduro government and saying his life was threatened in a prison riot. In retaliation, socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello, a powerful Maduro ally, said on state television that Holt was the CIAs top spy in Latin America. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who has Trumps ear on Latin America issues and spoke to Trump at length Friday night, said the couples release will in no way change U.S. policy toward the dictatorship in Venezuela.Ž The Trump administration has threatened crippling oil sanctions on Venezuela for Maduros decision to go forward with the presidential election last week. The U.S. government at “rst avoided ratcheting up public pressure on Venezuela in light of their already strained relations, but eventually raised Holts case with the highest levels of the Venezuelan government and decried his treatment in prison. Corker was seen live on state TV on Friday shaking hands with Maduro and being greeted by “rst lady Cilia Flores as he entered the presidential palace. Corker left an hour later; neither the senator nor the president made any statements. Holts mother, Laurie Holt, said her son and his wife were wrongly accused. She worked feverishly to bring attention to her sons incarceration, hosting rallies, fundraisers and doing media interviews. Laurie Holt said her son has suffered numerous health problems in jail, including kidney stones and respiratory problems. He was depressed and at one point lost so much weight that he dropped several pant sizes, she said. In their statement, the Holt family said, We thank you for your collaboration during this time of anguish. We ask that you allow us to meet with our son and his wife before giving any interviews and statements. We are grateful to all who participated in this miracle.ŽJAILEDFROM PAGE 1 sandbagging has become a usual event in his life since he lives next to a creek. Im doing this because every time we have a hard rain, it ”oods at my house,Ž Whitlock said.

Alberto „ the “rst named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that of“cially starts June 1 „ is expected to strengthen until it reaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely on Monday night. The NWS said waves as high as 18 feet could pound the popular Gulf beaches in Baldwin County, Alabama, and northwestern Florida on Monday. A high surf warning was in effect through 7 p.m. Tuesday local time. At 5 p.m. EDT Saturday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Alberto was about 95 miles north of the western tip of Cuba and moving north at 13 mph. The storm had top sustained winds of 40 mph and was expected to strengthen as it moves over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less de“ned and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes. A tropical storm warning remained in effect for Cubas western Pinar del Rio province, where heavy rains could trigger ”ash ”oods and mudslides, the National Hurricane Center said. Mexico canceled its watch for the resort-dotted coast of the Yucatan peninsula, where the storm brought heavy rain. There were no immediate reports of emergencies. In Cancun, local newspapers showed scenes of some streets ”ooded to mid-hubcap level. The downpours could dampen Memorial Day, the unof“cial start of the summer tourist season along Gulf beaches. Along with heavy rains and high winds come rough seas and a threat of rip currents from Florida to Louisiana that can sweep swimmers out to sea.ALBERTOFROM PAGE 1The U.S. still has 28,000 troops, several military bases and defensive anti-missile systems scattered throughout South Korea. But Moon, the son of North Korean war refugees who rose to power last year and has staked his presidency on the prospect of inter-Korean peace, might also be trying to secure his own commitments from the North „ even if talks with Trump go nowhere. Moon has been careful during the past few months of whirlwind diplomacy to frequently credit Trump for the opening of talks with North Korea. Nonetheless, strains between the allies have periodically become noticeable. Trump did not inform the South Koreans before canceling the summit Thursday. White House of“cials said Trump feared that the news would leak if he informed allies. The White House released his letter to Kim scrubbing the summit soon after Moon landed back in Seoul after a visit to Washington, where he had met with Trump. Robert Palladino, a U.S. national security spokesman, said Saturday that high-level White House of“cials were noti“ed of Moons meeting in advance, though he would not say whether the White House requested it, helped script it or was given an option to call it off. Moon and Kim met at Tongilgak, a negotiation site on the North Korean side of Panmunjom, the diplomatic outpost on the border separating the two countries, which are still technically at war. Moon was greeted by Kim Yo Jong, the North Korean leaders sister, who made a splash in South Korea by attending the Winter Olympics. A top North Korean diplomat and former spy chief for the totalitarian state, Kim Yong Chol, also attended the meeting. The two leaders posed for pictures together, embracing for a hug, during the meeting. Saturdays meeting was only the fourth time „ but the second in a month „ that leaders from the North and South have met directly. The two nations have remained estranged since the Korean War, and tensions between them had risen in recent years as the North sought to advance its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. Representatives of the Blue House, the South Korean presidents of“cial residence, declined to comment on which nation initiated Saturdays meeting. In calling off the June 12 summit with Kim, Trump had accused the government in Pyongyang of open hostility.Ž On Friday, however, he said talks with North Korean of“cials had resumed. He expressed cautious optimism that the meeting could be held after all. Trumps conciliatory turn followed a statement by Kims government saying it regretted Trumps action and remained willing to talk. Trump called that a very nice statement.Ž The chief sticking point for the two nations is Washingtons insistence that North Korea, which has amassed as many as 60 nuclear weapons and long-range missiles to deliver them, must immediately begin total denuclearization. North Korea has not been willing to commit to eliminating its nuclear arsenal, which Kim, his father and his grandfather, who preceded him as leader, have spent more than half a century acquiring.SUMMITFROM PAGE 1 possible long-term solutions. The amount of time needed to implement the repairs is unknown, but the (National Park Service) will continue to provide information to the public as our team of specialists works together to restore access as soon as possible,Ž memorial staff said Friday in a news release.

From its thriving e-commerce business to its ridiculously profitable Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-computing segment, along with its acquisitions of Whole Foods Market and video-doorbell leader Ring, Amazon is truly firing on all cylinders. (Last year, AWS contributed 10 percent of Amazons revenue „ and some believe the business could triple over the next five years.) Amazons revenue last quarter skyrocketed 39 percent year over year (on a constant-currency basis) to a staggering $51 billion, with operating income jumping 92 percent. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has confirmed that the Amazon Prime service sports more than 100 million members. Those members not only enjoy the fast, free shipping on millions of items for which Prime is best known, but also have access to Prime Music, Prime Instant Video, discounts at Whole Foods and other little-known benefits. In fact, Amazon recently used those benefits to justify increasing the price of Prime by $20, to $119 per year, marking its first price hike in four years. With significant and accelerating growth drivers, Amazon.com is well worth considering as a long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Amazon.com.

Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentOut of the Frying Pan „ and Back in AgainMy dumbest investment experience was when I couldnt place some trading orders I wanted to make because of problems with my brokerage. It required me to go into the office to sign a couple of forms. I got mad and transferred two of my accounts to two other well-known brokerages. Unfortunately, the other brokerages caused me grief, too, as it took a long time until I got the options trading rights that I wanted. One brokerages online trading screen didnt allow for larger text to accommodate my poor eyesight, and the other brokerage surprised me with lots of extra fees „ while having a confusing and hard-to-use trading platform. I ended up moving those accounts back to my original brokerage. „ J.B., Camano Island, Washington The Fool Responds: Youre right to move your account if youre displeased with your brokerage and believe that a different one will serve you better. Most major brokerages get good marks on a host of factors. Be sure you assess many factors before settling on which brokerage to use. Consider trading commissions, but also think about whether you want a brick-and-mortar location and about minimum investments and fees youll face, among other things. It can be a good idea to call each candidates customer service, too, to see how responsive and helpful it is. See if you can get a good look at how easy-to-use their online trading system seems to be, too. After Doubling, What?QWhen one of my stock holdings doubles in value, would it be smart to sell it and buy a different stock that looks more undervalued? „ D.B., St. Joseph, MichiganAMaybe „ but maybe not. Focus more on how o vervalued or undervalued you think the stock is and what you think of the companys growth prospects than on how much it has grown.Do you believe it still has a lot of room to grow? If so, consider hanging on to all or some of your shares. The stocks of many great companies have doubled and doubled repeatedly over the years. On the other hand, if, after doing some research, youre not so sure about it, you might sell some or all of your shares, thereby locking in at least some gains. If you dont understand the companys business very well, selling is smart. Meanwhile, if the stock has grown so much that it now makes up a significant chunk of your portfolios total value, consider selling at least some shares so that you dont have too many eggs in that one basket. Even seemingly terrific companies fall on hard times „ you dont want too much of your money tied up in one stock.***QWhat do brokerages charge to buy or sell a stock? „ R.L., onlineAIn the old days, each trade could cost several hundred dollars. Today, though, many major brokerages charge commissions of around $7 or less per trade. They typically offer other services, too, such as stock research, banking and/or financial planning.Dont just focus on commission costs, though, when seeking a brokerage „ especially if you dont trade often.Want more information about stocks?

Here are some nuggets, paraphrased: € On the big picture: Buffett reminded the crowd that when it comes to investing, we shouldnt get too distracted by the current state of the economy. The overriding question is how American business is going to do over your investing lifetime. If you are bullish on America and believe that its businesses will grow and prosper over time, then investing in the stock market should pay off. (A great way to do this is simply to invest in an S&P 500 index fund for many years.) € On bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies: Buffett and Munger made it clear that theyre not big fans.

Im a widow and have been with him for two years. Earl loves me, helps me and goes out with me wherever I want to go. One problem: He irts with other women. It can be family, neighbors, clerks, waitresses, etc. He calls them sweetheart,Ž baby,Ž darling,Ž etc. He pours on the charm and even follows them around to help them with whatever they are doing. I am not threatened, but I get really embarrassed. I have also noticed that Earl has no male friends and seems to avoid them. When we are alone, its all about me. He treats me wonderfully, but get another woman around and he goes nuts. Whats going on with this man? „ PUT OFF IN PHOENIX DEAR PUT OFF: Earl may be less condent in the company of other men, or he may consider them competition for the attention of women. Or, he may need to constantly ingratiate and prove his attractiveness to himself. Im not going to attempt to psychoanalyze a man I have never met. Heck, its hard enough to do when I know the person. If you really want to know whats going on with Earl, ask HIM to explain it to you. DEAR ABBY: Please help settle a debate my wife and I are having. When making the bed, I always place the top sheet between the tted sheet and comforter with the nished side facing up. It seems logical. She insists the nished side should face down so that when you fold the top back near the pillows you see the nished side of the sheet. I get her point, but I just dont think thats right. Which way should it go? „ SLEEPLESS IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR SLEEPLESS: If the sheet has attractive trim, why on Earth wouldnt you want to display it? Im voting with your wife. If you are SleeplessŽ because you are arguing over which way the top sheet should face, thank your lucky stars its not a pitched battle over something more serious. My solution would be: Whoever makes the bed gets to decide which way the sheet faces. DEAR ABBY: When a spouse dies, what should be done with the wedding bands? „ PLANNING AHEAD IN NEW ENGLAND DEAR PLANNING AHEAD: There is no right or wrong answer to a question like yours because getting past the loss of a loved life partner (grieving) is an individual process. Thats why you should do whatever feels right to you. Some widows and widowers continue to wear their wedding band until they are ready to date again. Others move it to their right hand, or wear their spouses ring on a chain around their neck. P.S. I once saw a woman wearing a gold band to which she had fused her deceased husbands ring so that it sat at atop her ring nger. I thought the concept was clever, original and touching.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 NEW YORK „ Morgan Freeman says he likes to compliment people to make them feel at ease around him but that he has never sexually assaulted women. The Academy Awardwinning actor is “ghting back against charges of bad behavior made by multiple women in a CNN report this week. He said in a statement late Friday that the report has devastated him and that it is not right to equate horri“c incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor.Ž CNNs story includes one movie production assistant who said Freeman unsuccessfully tried to lift her skirt. Other women talked about unwanted touching on their backs and shoulders. Mostly, Freemans accusers say he would comment about their bodies or clothes or make them uncomfortable by staring. A male former employee of Freemans production company said the 80-yearold actor would behave like a creepy uncle.Ž One of the articles authors, Chloe Melas, began working on it following a press junket where she said Freeman clasped her hand, looked her up and down and made comments like, you are ripe.Ž I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women, and men, feel appreciated and at ease around me,Ž Freeman said. As a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way. Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended.Ž He said that he did not assault women, create unsafe work environments or offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. His reference to equating his behavior with others was unclear. The accusations against Freeman came out the same day word spread that New York City authorities were “ling rape charges against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Freemans statement was reminiscent of an email written by longtime television anchor Tom Brokaw sent to friends recently after a former colleague had accused him of unwanted sexual advances. I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursdays media reports,Ž Freeman said. Freeman won the 2005 Oscar for best supporting actor for Million Dollar Baby.Ž He was nominated four other times, including for Driving Miss DaisyŽ and The Shawshank Redemption.Ž His voice is familiar on commercials and as a narrator for documentaries and other productions.Morgan Freeman says he did not assault womenBy DAVID BAUDERAP MEDIA WRITER FREEMAN LOS ANGELES (AP) „ Thousands of scouts have placed American ”ags on the graves of veterans in a ceremony ahead of Memorial Day.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C3 www.highlandsnewssun.com The MemphisŽ style is making the comeback in interiors. A group of 20 somethings who were employed by a 60 something architect in Italy developed arguably the most recognizable style of design in modern history that no one has ever heard of, the MemphisŽ style. Think you dont know what the MemphisŽ style is? Not only will you remember it, I bet your husband tried to recreate it as soon as you both decided to make the move to Florida. It was highlighted by pink neon, geometric shapes, ”ashes of bold and pastel colors mixed incoherently, glass block and a micro“ber chaise lounge somewhere. Thats right, you saw it every week on Miami Vice.Ž Put on your white linen pants, pink T-shirt and loafers (sans socks;) we are taking the DeLorean to Memphis! Its a style that makes interior designers cringe as soon as we see it, immediately break out the sledgehammer and order a dumpster. Its popularity at the time resulted in China becoming a strong player in the American home furnishings market and Walmart making highŽ design available to small towns everywhere as it trickled down to you and I by the early 1990s. It inspired us as novice designers to move our homes beyond the decor section of the Sears Big Book. And like the “rst time we took the training wheels off our bike, it was a painful disaster. Or was it? I have only recently gained an appreciation of this style of the post-modern movement. It was the vision of architect Ettore Sottsass and his team in 1981 Milan while they listened to Bob Dylans Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again.Ž This counterculture of design thought felt the rules of design needed a shakeup from what the media and big business were feeding people. Sound familiar? They challenged the classic order of design by mixing colors that did not blend and patterns that did not ”ow. They wanted you to feel uncomfortable in spaces. Scale was ignored, man-made materials were favored, and black lacquer was a must. For a good example of post-modernism here in Sebring, take a stroll through Lakeshore Mall. Everything from the pink and green geometric tile patterns to the oversized lime green lighted gazebo entrances are a nod to the MemphisŽ movement. Once you realize that the style founders were just as horri“ed by the MemphisŽ style as we are today, I feel bad about pulling out the sledgehammer. Especially given how similar the story sounds to how interior design is being in”uenced by advertisers through social media now. When Sherwin Williams presented their Colormix Forecast 2018 they included a palette named Connectivity created to re”ect A generation (who) is waving the ”ag of color freedom, and Instagramming every moment.Ž Maybe a little anti-designŽ is just what we need right now. Find your own style, explore colors and shapes that excite you. Worry not if something matches, just surround yourself with all the fabrics, “nishes and textures that make you happy. That is how the founders of the MemphisŽ style want us to approach design. Remember the MemphisŽ style? Share your stories on my blog at: http://shellysappinteriors.com/blog/.

Which colors can I put together? And which ones may be taboo or clash? Here are some general guidelines you can follow that can help improve the likelihood of color combination success.COOL VS. WARM COLORSA traditional color wheel can be a wonderful guide and tool if you are confused about which potential colors could blend well when placed near each other. As a general rule of thumb, colors next to each other on the wheel work well together, as do colors that are opposite each other on the wheel. Dont be afraid to blend colors together, either by pairing warm colors with other warm colors, or by pairing cool and warm colors. Have a special out“t or garment pairing you simply love? Consider trying that same color combination in your home. Often, colors that work in fashion can easily translate into fabrics and wall colors that will work well together in the realm of home decor.TURQUOISE AND ORANGETurquoise and orange may sound like an odd pairing, but the color combination can be quite inviting, especially for those looking for a modern, if not hip decor. The blend of turquoise, often viewed as a warm season color, and a more traditional orange, can appear timeless and modern.BLACK, WHITE AND REDBlack and White is one of the most popular color combinations in both fashion and home decor. Add a pop of red, and you have the recipe for color success. Fun, crisp and clean, this color combination can be used in living spaces or in a kitchen.YELLOW AND CHARCOALWhether it is mustard, lemon yellow or chartreuse, yellow is an innovative, modern and creatively dynamic color when paired with cool colors such as gray, whether it is a light gray or a deeper shade such as a charcoal.CHARCOAL AND DARK BLUEThis is an instance in which two cool colors work well together. With the shade of blue, dont be afraid to go with rich and bright tones, as these shades will create an inviting contrast when paired with gray.DARK BLUE AND BLACKA few years back, there was a bit of a fashion controversy surrounding this particular color combination, asking the question, can you wear blue with black? The answer according to many fashionistas is yes, and this is a color combination that also often works extremely well when it comes to home decor.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C5 www.highlandsnewssun.com Question: I live in a two-story condo on the second ”oor. I have access through a trap door in the ceiling of my unit to the attic. I placed a small deck of plywood and use the space in the attic to store holiday decorations. The “re marshal said it was OK to use the area for noncombustible items. Our board members now say we cannot store anything over our units and they have the authority to insist we remove them no matter what the “re marshal says. I have lived here for years, and the use of our attics was never an issue. Could you please advise me? „ Jeanne Answer: You will most likely need to remove your storage from the attic. However, before you do, you should check your condominium documents to see what space you own. The documents will set forth what space you own outright, and what areas are held in common with your neighbors. Most people usually think of the common areas as the lobby and parking lot, but stairwells, roofs and mechanical systems are generally also owned by your community. This means that putting items in the attic is little different from leaving it in the lobby. Whether leaving items in the attic is a “re risk is only one consideration. There can be other reasons that you should not use the attic, such as maintenance requirements and fairness to other owners of the common space that dont have access to the additional storage the attic provides you. There may be some hope for you, however. You should speak with your board and neighbors about designating storage areas for various members of the community. Perhaps, second-”oor residents can use the attic, and “rst-”oor folks get space in a storage shed. Another idea might be to allow second-”oor residents to rent the additional space from the community for a small fee. I am sure there are other equitable solutions you and your neighbors can come up with if you put your heads together. Gary M.

SINGERSUN SENTINEL To love honeysuckle, plant the right one in the right spotWho couldnt love a plant with a name that speaks of both sweetness and nurturing? Yet there are those who scorn honeysuckle. And „ just as bad „ there are those who shower honeysuckles with too much affection. The key to experiencing honeysuckles sweet side is having the right plant in the right place. The name honeysuckleŽ can refer to any of the almost 200 species in Lonicera, the honeysuckle genus, not to mention all the varieties within each species. They vary considerably in appearance, growth habit and, shall we say, exuberance.THREATENING HONEYSUCKLESHalls honeysuckle, deciduous in northern regions and increasingly evergreen as you travel south, is a vine that bears extremely fragrant, yellowish ”owers pretty much all summer long. Although it was welcomed enthusiastically when it arrived here from Asia in 1806, it subsequently spread with equal enthusiasm, leading some gardeners to curse it. Especially where winter cold does not keep growth in check, this plant swallows up banks, rocks, trees and shrubs. If you plant Halls honeysuckle, keep a watchful eye on it. Amur honeysuckle, which releases a sweet aroma each spring from yellowish or pinkish blossoms, is another invader that draws critics. This robust shrub will grow as much as 10 feet high and wide, and as its stems arch to the ground, they can take root to create whole new shrubs, which do the same. The shiny, red berries, paired along the stems later in summer, capture our attention because they look so tasty. Birds like eating them and contribute to this honeysuckles spread, mostly to abandoned “elds and the edges of woods, where it often does battle with the multi”ora rose, another invasive shrub.HONEYSUCKLES WORTH PLANTINGNot all honeysuckles threaten to take over the world. And these more timid species still abound in qualities. Take, for example, winter honeysuckle, a plant most appreciated in late winter or early spring. Its ”owers, though not particularly showy, emit a powerful, lemony fragrance over a long period of time. One of my favorite honeysuckles „ one of my favorite plants, in fact „ is trumpet honeysuckle. The ”owers, unfortunately, have no fragrance, but they make up for that in ostentatious beauty with their clusters of long, red trumpets joined at their bases. Another favorite of mine is woodbine honeysuckle. Its ”owers are more subdued, in pastel purple, pink, and yellow, but they ”are wide open and, according to some people (not me), have a fragrance. Both trumpet and woodbine honeysuckle are twining vines that burst into bloom in early summer, then continue the show at a more restrained pace for almost the rest of the season. To me, every bare telephone pole cries out for this vine. Ive clothed two. One honeysuckle that gets high marks all around is Sakhalin honeysuckle. Its a reasonably sized, rounded shrub with large, red ”owers that are followed by red berries. An especially nice feature of this honeysuckle is the golden yellow fall color of its leaves. Despite all the other honeysuckles in the landscape „ and some are frighteningly exuberant „ lets make an opening for this relative newcomer, introduced in 1917.EDIBLE HONEYSUCKLESTwo more honeysuckles, honeyberry honeysuckle and bearberry honeysuckle, are worth mentioning because of their blue, edible fruits that ripen very early in the season, even before strawberries. These berries have long been harvested in China, Russia and Japan, and the plants have recently been introduced here. I havent found the berries to be particularly tasty. Then again, this is a new fruit, at the same point in development now as the apple may have been 2,000 years ago, so Im willing to wait and see. Ill assume that the nectar „ which gives honeysuckles their name „ is at least as sweet as that of other honeysuckles.By LEE REICHTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo shows trumpet honeysuckle in New Paltz, N.Y. Unlike some other species of honeysuckle, trumpet honeysuckle is sedate enough to make a good garden plant and it blooms all summer long. adno=3577980 Reed Ferry TeamKIM REED863-381-6575HELEN FERRY863-381-1089Top REALTORS with over 30 years experience, Kim and Helen are ready to help you with all of your real estate needs!WWW.HOMESFORSALESEBRING.COMkimbreed@comcast.nethbferry@comcast.net Weve teamed up to give you DOUBLE THE AGENTS, DOUBLE THE SERVICE!

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, fixedrate mortgages was 4.66 percent, up from 4.61 percent last week. Pushing toward the significant 5 percent level, the new average benchmark rate was the highest since May 5, 2011. By contrast, the 30-year rate averaged 3.95 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, fixed-rate loans increased to 4.15 percent from 4.08 percent last week. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The fees on 30-year and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages were both unchanged at 0.4 percent. The average rate for five-year adjustable-rate mortgages rose to 3.87 percent from 3.82 percent last week. The fee remained at 0.3 percent.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this April le photo, a for sale sign sits in front of a home in Jackson, Miss. On Thursday, May 24, Freddie Mac reports on the weeks average U.S. mortgage rates. What are qualified mortgages, and what purpose do they serve?In 2013, the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act introduced the quali“ed mortgage concept, which was designed to eliminate the market abuses that had led to the “nancial crisis a few years earlier. Like most crisis-induced legislation, Dodd/Frank is replete with ”aws, and the quali“ed mortgage concept (henceforth QM) is one of them. Rationale of the concept One striking feature of the “nancial crisis was the extraordinarily high default rates on all the high-risk mortgage types that had emerged during the preceding go-go years. These included a variety of approaches designed to keep mortgage payments low in the early years of the loan. Option ARMs, for example, allowed borrowers to make payments that did not cover the interest, resulting in negative amortization. When house prices started to decline, the default rate on option ARMs exploded. The QM was a reaction to that experience. The idea was to de“ne a class of mortgages that contained only low-risk features, which would constitute the core of a market that would be invulnerable to the forces that had generated the crisis. As inducement to participate, lenders were offered liability protection: If the loan goes bad but it is a QM, you wont be held liable.Ž De“ning a quali“ed mortgage QMs are de“ned in terms of features that they must have and features they cannot have. The most important feature they must have is compliance with an ability-to-repay rule or ATR. In making a reasonable good-faith determination that a mortgage borrower has the ability to repay, the lender must consider eight features of the loan speci“ed in the rule, document compliance and retain documents for three years. Indeed, the legislators who drafted Dodd-Frank viewed this rule as so essential that they decided to apply it to all home loans, not just QMs. Features that QMs cannot have include mortgage payments that are not fully amortizing, which eliminates negative amortization or interest-only payments. Terms cannot exceed 30 years, lender fees cannot exceed 3 percent of the loan amount, and the borrowers debt-toincome ratio cannot exceed 43 percent. I ignore the many quali“cations and exceptions to these rules, because they are not germane to the issue in question: Does the QM approach to market regulation make sense? In my view, it does not, for three reasons: „QM wasnt needed to protect the system against another “nancial crisis. The “nancial crisis re”ected an unusual set of conditions: a sustained house price rise for more than eight years and the absence of a national decline in house prices for over 70 years. This combination underlay the mindset that house prices could only continue going up, and therefore all mortgages were good. It is unlikely that that mindset will emerge again for at least 30 years, when the current generation of lenders is gone from the scene. „QM would not protect the system in any case. Dodd-Frank did not eliminate risky mortgage loans; what it did was segment the market between lenders who make QMs and lenders who make non-QM loans. If I am wrong and the mindset of perpetual house price increases takes hold in the near future, the non-QM sector would take off just as the subprime sector did in the early 2000s. The only signi“cant difference would be that the large mainstream institutions would be mainly QM lenders, though nothing would prevent them from having non-QM af“liates. There is a way to protect the system against a new crisis episode, but the QM approach is not it. „QM distorts the market, to the disadvantage of weaker borrowers. The probability that a loan will be repaid as scheduled depends on many interrelated factors. A weakness in one factor does not mean that the probability is low if that factor is offset by strength in other factors. Balancing the various factors that affect this probability is what underwriters (and automated underwriting systems) do. QM, in contrast, deals in absolutes. If the debt-to-income ratio is 44 percent, the loan does not qualify, even if the borrower is putting 40 percent down and has a perfect credit record. The borrower in this case would have to go to a non-QM lender. Based on a comparison I did yesterday of QM vs. non-QM prices, the rate penalty would be about 1.5 percent. The same point can be made about all the QM requirements. Before Dodd-Frank, for example, interest-only payments for the “rst 10 years of a 30-year “xed-rate mortgage was a common provision, for which the borrower paid 0.125 percent or 0.25 percent more in rate. Today, she will pay about 1.5 percent more. The difference can be viewed as a Dodd-Frankinduced private tax. Perhaps the worst consequence of the Dodd-Frank absolutist approach to mortgage quality is its requirement, imposed on all mortgages, that borrowers fully document their income. One result has been to deny credit to many self-employed borrowers with excellent credentials in all respects except that they cannot document much income. Conclusion: The QM concept serves no useful purpose. Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C7 www.highlandsnewssun.com For spring, window treatments with flairEven the simplest window treatments have an important role to play in the look of a room. They really soften and furnish a space much more than most people imagine,Ž says interior designer Betsy Burnham of Los Angeles. Yet she often has to reassure people that drapes, curtains or other window treatments dont have to be fussy. It can be tailored, simple panels done in great fabrics and the simplest of hardware,Ž she says. With spring “nally arriving, weve asked Burnham and two other interior designers „ Florida-based Maggie Cruz and New Yorkbased Deborah Martin „ for advice on whats trending in window design. How can homeowners preserve their privacy while letting in the sunlight and enjoying their view all spring and summer?Simple can be powerfulWere seeing a trend more toward minimalizing whats happening around the window,Ž says Cruz. Her clients are increasingly seeking functional items like simple shades, perhaps softened with a lightweight drapery. The hardware,Ž she says, is just enough to maybe play with the color of the metal.Ž Burnham loves that kind of simplicity: I like to use the thinnest rod I can that will support the weight of the curtain,Ž she says. Ideally, thats just 1-inch thick. For support brackets, I like them always to be horizontal so you cant see them. Theyre behind the rod. Its really minimal, and yet its drapery.Ž Martin says her clients are also embracing soft organic fabrics and natural “bers like woven woods and raf“a shades, perhaps looking for more of a high-touch, tactile element for our homes as we try to disengage from high tech.ŽMaximalism still has fansMartin is also working with clients who are bringing more color and glamour into their furnishings and window design: Color, color, color,Ž she says, is the No. 1 trend.Ž Taking their cue from the fashion industry, many of her clients in New York are embracing bold, graphic patterns, and in some cases shimmery, glittery and even sequined fabrics.Ž She is also seeing soft velvets, popular for several years as sofa upholstery, now being used for stationary drapery panels that serve as columns of color to frame a window. Burnham is also seeing some of this embrace of bold patterns, though the look is less overtly glamorous. I think that were done with the urban farmhouse,Ž she says. Maximalism is coming back to a certain degree. In L.A., its not about glitz and glam, but its about pattern. And it can be a pattern thats reminiscent of your grandmothers cottage in the country or it can be a pattern thats more geometric and tailored.ŽTechnology has its placeAll three designers see the growing popularity of remote-controlled motorized shades, which have become less expensive and less complicated to install. Cruz says her clients love them just for the ease and functionality.Ž Martin sees the same trend in Manhattan: If you live in a high-rise in the city,Ž she says, and you have walls of windows, who is going to take the time to raise and lower all those shadesŽ every morning and evening?New twists on classicsCruz has been using a lot of wooden plantation shutters for clients, but they are updated and modern,Ž she says. Because these shutters have wide louvers, they let in lots of light and dont obscure the view when open. Many are designed with a hidden tilt bar, she says, so the horizontal line of the shutters isnt cut so obviously by a vertical bar of wood. Wooden shutters, Cruz says, add to the millwork of the house.Ž Martin, who uses this type of wooden shutter in some rooms in her own home, agrees: Theyre architectural and functional,Ž she says, and they just add so much to a room, almost like wood moldings.Ž Another new twist on traditional style: In her dining room, Burnham has leopard-print draperies in a casual cotton fabric. Theyre not heavy or fancy,Ž she says, and theyre funky in a way that its not taking itself too seriously.Ž Whether youre most comfortable with minimalist Roman shades or leopard-print draperies, Burnham does suggest taking time in choosing new window designs for your home. This is a much more complicated category of designŽ than selecting a side table or rug, she says. There are a lot of things to consider, and people do make mistakesŽ if they design their windows without a lot of thought. They hang their rods too low or too high, so that you walk into the room and you know something is a just little bit off.ŽASK A DESIGNERMELISSA RAYWORTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo provided by Betsy Burnham shows a room designed by Burnham.

With limited space to work with, we dont want to overcrowd the area. One of your past articles spoke about bene“ts of a pedestal sink in a small space. But, were looking for extra storage as well. Any bathroom “xture recommendations for saving space along with storage? „ Jill, UtahAnswer: Pedestal sinks and wall-hung bathroom sinks can open up a smaller bathroom. But, as you mentioned, both wall-hung and the dressier pedestal sinks offer very little storage space. Vanity type sinks offer great storage areas, but with the closed box design you can lose that open feeling in a small bathroom. A solution to all these issues can be an open style vanity cabinet. Open style vanities use the same style sink tops as a regular vanity, but instead of a closed box design the walls and doors of the cabinet are eliminated, leaving the open framework. This can be a nice place for storing towels and accessories. So, if youre looking for the best of both worlds, dont close the door on installing an open vanity base.

Sunday, May 27, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C9 www.highlandsnewssun.com The dawn of spring and approach of summer mean its time to start hiring tree services to tidy up your yard. Of course, a good tree service company does more than just prune leaves and snip branches. Hiring the most quali“ed possible tree service professional ensures a longer life for your tree and a safer yard for you and your family.WHAT KIND OF PROFESSIONAL SHOULD I HIRE?Most states dont license tree service professionals, so when youre hiring, you need to look for reputable third-party certi“cation. The International Society of Arboriculture and the Tree Care Industry Association both offer respected certi“cation programs. Certi“ed arborists are trained in long-term tree health and the safest methods for pruning and, if necessary, removing trees. They engage in continuing education to stay current on research and innovation in tree care.WHY SHOULDNT MY PRO TOP A TREE?The act of tree topping, de“ned as the excessive and arbitrary removal of parts of a tree with no regard for its structure or growth pattern, is a contentious one in the tree service industry. But most professionals agree that they should not remove too many branches and leaves. And when they do cut trees back, they should take great care to maintain the trees structural integrity. Responsible pruning targets dead branches, those that cross and rub against each other, and unsafe branches that pose a threat to the house. Proper pruning, unlike topping, helps the tree develop strong roots. Topping, by contrast, destroys the balance between the roots and crown of a tree. Removing too many branches and leaves can starve trees because, without foliage, trees cannot make enough food to maintain their strength. Instead, the tree will quickly generate food-producing shoots that are much weaker and more prone to breaking. Professionals do note that fruit trees can be an exception to this rule, since theyre a crop as well as shade-producing and ornamental trees. But most trees on residential properties should not be topped.HOW DOES TREE REMOVAL WORK?Sometimes, you may feel you have no choice but to remove a tree. It may be too close to your home, potentially causing damage during severe storms. It may be growing into power lines and creating a hazard. A seriously diseased tree may be weakened and more prone to falling down, in which case its safer to bring down the tree in a controlled manner. Tree removal is a hazardous job that is best left to the professionals. Fees vary based on the height of the tree, its condition, and the thickness of the trunk. Trees in dangerous areas, such as close to structures or power lines, will bump up the price. Removing the stump is often an entirely separate process. You should also ask your professional how they plan to handle getting rid of the waste. Many tree removal services include chipping and removal in their estimate, but you should be clear up front. For an extra charge, you can ask them to split the logs for “rewood and stack them in your yard. Paul F. P.

Its their first time competing against each other since racing around the world together seeking $1 million last fall. Its not the starting spot either wanted, but both have a chance to make history. The silver lining is we have a very cool opportunity,Ž Rossi said. I think it will be one hell of a story if we can pull it off.Ž The 26-year-old Rossi will start next to last in the No. 27 Honda for Andretti Autosport. The 2016 race winner ended up with a less-than-ideal qualifying position because of a punctured right front tire. No one expects him to be in the back very long. Rossi showed enough speed during practice sessions that he has been made one of the bettingline favorites. Online betting site Bovada made him the top choice, with 8-1 odds. Its definitely possible at this race,Ž he said. If we were at Road America or Phoenix Rossi, Daly looking for real-life Amazing Race in Indy 500AUTO RACING: Indy 500From cast to crewAP PHOTOConor Daly signs an autograph for a fan after he qualified for the IndyCar Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis yesterday. By STEVE REEDAssociated PressCONCORD, N.C. „ Kevin Harvick is well aware hes in the midst of something special. Harvick has won the last three Cup races, including the $1 million All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend. And while he is starting 39th for the Coca-Cola 600 after his No. 4 Ford failed inspection three times prior to qualifying, hes expected to be in the mix at the end. When you are on a hot streak, you are so confident not only as a driver but as a team,Ž said Joey Logano Its like you cant do anything wrong. You just happen to be in the right spot at the right times. Their cars are really fast, they are really smart and they are really good. And Kevin is a great driver. ... When youre good, youre good. Hes confident.Ž Harvicks failure to participate in qualifying wasnt lost on his competitors, who are looking for any advantage possible in their attempts to reel him in. Logano joked that it sure dont hurtŽ that Harvick has to start at the back of the field. But with this being 100 miles longer than any other race on the NASCAR circuit, Harvick has plenty of time to push to the front. Harvick said his team knows things are going well, but they are staying focused and handling success in stride. You can feel that within the organization that what you could achieve by the time you roll through Homestead at the end of the year,Ž Harvick said. Its something you might not ever get to do again, so I dont believe that those conversations will have to happen. Our goal is to playoff race every week and I think as were doing that right now as an organization. Thats still the goal going forward.Ž Harvick is looking to become the sixth driver to win the All-Star race and then follow with a win in the 600.AUTO RACING: Coca-Cola 600Harvick looks to carry hot streakAP PHOTOKevin Harvick prepares for practice for the NASCAR Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C., yesterday. By MARK DIDTLERAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG „ Ryne Stanek, Anthony Banda and Chaz Roe combined to give up three hits on a bullpen day as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Saturday. With the Rays thin in the rotation, Banda (1-0) entered with two outs in the second. He wound up allowing one run and three hits while striking out seven over 6 ‡ innings. The left-hander held Baltimore hitless until Danny Valencia tripled to start the fifth. Valencia was left stranded when Banda struck out Chris Davis and Joey Rickard, and got a grounder from Andrew Susac Stanek got the start and retired all five batters he faced, including strikeouts of Adam Jones, Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop. Roe worked a perfect ninth for the Rays. Sergio Romo will make his second start in three days and fourth in eight days in Sundays series finale when the Rays completes a stretch of three consecutive days of having relievers starting games. The longtime reliever took the loss in Friday nights 2-0 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run while getting two outs. Tampa Bay jumped ahead early, taking a 5-0 lead after two innings. Joey Wendle had an RBI triple and scored on Wilson Ramos double in the first. After Rob Refsnyder hit a runscoring single, C.J. Cron made it 5-0 in the second with a two-run double off Andrew Cashner. Cashner (2-6), who allowed five runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings, left with the bases loaded and no outs in the sixth and was replaced by Tanner Scott, who struck out three batters in a row. The Orioles got their run in the seventh when Machado doubled and scored on Davis opposite-field single to left.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: OF Mark Trumbo (sore knee) is feeling better and could avoid going on the disabled list. Rays: OF Carlos Gomez (right groin strain) was reinstated from the 10-day DL.GETTING BETTERInjured Orioles closer Zach Britton (right Achilles tendon surgery) is scheduled to start a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Norfolk. Reliever Darren ODay (hyperextended right elbow) will resume throwing Tuesday.CLOSER BY COMMITTEERays manager Kevin Cash is not ready to appoint a replacement for closer Alex Colome, who was traded with OF Denard Span to Seattle on Friday. I think its going to be pretty fluid,Ž Cash said.

With a consistent rain and puddles forming on the infield, the Charlotte Stone Crabs and Fort Myers Miracle managed to squeeze in five innings of the first game of a scheduled doubleheader. Despite the less than ideal weather conditions, the Stone Crabs prevailed, scoring a run in each of the first two innings to defeat the Miracle 2-0. Blake Bivens tossed five innings for the Stone Crabs, holding the Miracle to just three hits, while striking out four en route to earning his first first victory of the season. Charlotte's Nate Lowe delivered the first RBI of the game, driving in Miles Mastrobuoni who had singled earlier in the inning The Stone Crabs added another run in the second, taking advantage of a scoring opportunity, as Lucius Fox singled home Peter Maris, whose leadoff single set the table to open the inning.

Fusing athleticism and technique, it was a mesmerizing sight to behold from the Real Madrid forward. Rarely has there been a finer goal in a European final and Bale followed it up with another to seal Madrids third successive Champions League title in a 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday. Yet with blunders, injuries and intrigue unfolding throughout the night in Kievs Olympic Stadium, the wonder-goal just enriched this engrossing climax to the European club season and set the tone for weeks of uncertainty. A weeping Mohamed Salah was forced off in the first half with a shoulder injury that foiled Liverpools quest for a first continental success in 13 years and left the World Cup hopes of the Egyptian KingŽ in jeopardy. Tears also streamed down Loris Karius face after the Liverpool goalkeepers mistakes gifted two goals in the biggest match of his career. It might also be his last for Liverpool, which was denied a sixth European title by the aristocrats of the continent. When all they should have been thinking about is celebrating, both Bale and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo also cast doubts on their Madrid careers. But while Zinedine Zidane was adamant about the need to keep hold of five-time world player of the year Ronaldo, the Madrid coach seemed far less concerned about the future of the player whose two goals just delivered the clubs record-extending 13th European title. Bale only came on in the second half. The impact was explosive, scoring the bicycle kick in the 64th minute. Five years into his Madrid career, the 28-year-old Bale wants to be more than a super-sub. I need to be playing week in, week out and that hasnt happened this season for one reason or another,Ž Bale said after lifting the European Cup for a fourth time with Madrid. I need to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent.ŽCHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Real Madrid 3, Liverpool 1Madrid seals Champions League three-peat By NOAH TRISTERAssociated PressANN ARBOR, Mich. „ In-Kyung Kim began her round with a flurry of birdies, and Stacy Lewis „ playing five months pregnant „ closed hers out in similar fashion. They both still have work to do if theyre going to catch Minjee Lee, whose steady consistency has been enough so far. Lee shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the LPGA Volvik Championship. She capped a bogey-free third round with a birdie on No. 18 to get to 12 under, and now the Australian standout will try to celebrate her birthday with her first victory of the year. She turns 22 on Sunday. It was pretty solid today,Ž Lee said. I didnt make any bogeys. Just four birdies on the card. Yeah, thats pretty good.Ž Expecting her first child in November, Lewis birdied five of the last six holes for a 67. She finished the day at 10 under along with Kim (67), who birdied six of the first eight holes and shot a 31 on the front nine. Jodi Ewart Shadoff (69) and Lindy Duncan (69) were also at 10 under, and five more players were at 9 under, setting the stage for what could be a wild final round. This golf course, you can shoot a number, you can shoot 6 or 7 under, but you can also play pretty good and shoot even par,Ž Lewis said. So youve just got to get runs like I did there at the end of the day and just keep hanging around and post a number and see what happens. Thats what wins these things.Ž Lee left a putt about 8 feet short on the par-3 16th, but she was able to par that hole. Then she hit a provisional after a wayward tee shot on 17, but her original ball was OK in the rough, and she parred that hole too. She has made only two bogeys in three days. Lee lost this tournament by one stroke last year to Shanshan Feng. Kim couldnt maintain her torrid early pace, playing the back nine in even par. Lewis, meanwhile, was having a quiet round until her impressive stretch toward the end. The little one was telling me its dinnertime right now, but other than that I feel pretty good,Ž she said after the round. Ewart Shadoff holed out from about 85 yards for an eagle on No. 4. She was 11 under when she made the turn but had her ups and downs after that, making three bogeys and two birdies on the back. Shes been dealing with a lower back injury recently. Its better,Ž Ewart Shadoff said. This is the first time Ive done three or four consecutive rounds in a row.Ž Nasa Hataoka, the 36-hole leader shot a 74 and dropped to 7 under. Play was interrupted for about two hours by a weather delay, and the timing was particularly interesting for Lizette Salas. She was about to putt for par from only a couple feet on No. 18 when the horn went off, signaling for players to clear the course. So Salas (70) had to wait out the delay before returning to make her routine putt. She received a big cheer when she did. Playing partner Wichanee Meechai finished the 18th just before the delay, but she had to come back to the green as well because of scorecard protocol. Players did have a chance to warm up before play resumed. Practice my 2-footers,Ž Salas said. I was actually really nervous.ŽLPGA: Volvik ChampionshipLee tops event in Michigan; pregnant Lewis tied for 2ndAP PHOTOStacy Lewis hits from the fairway on the first hole during the third round of the LPGA Volvik Championship golf tournament at the Travis Pointe Country Club yesterday in Ann Arbor, Mich.

The Sun / Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By ROGER MOONEYTimes Staff WriterTAMPA „ Captain Steven Stamkos said the Lightnings window for contending for a Stanley Cup championship is not closing. I think its wide open,Ž he said Thursday, one day after the Lightning lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final to the Capitals. General manager Steve Yzerman thinks it is, too, and it is Yzermans job to keep that window open. Yzermans team fell one game shy of reaching the Stanley Cup final, which indicates to him it is not good enough to win it all. How does he fix that? Not by blowing up the roster, he said. But, he added, the team has to be better. And how is that? Is that in the way we play? Is that in changing personnel? Personnel will change regardless, whether its just evolution year to year,Ž Yzerman said Thursday. How much it changes depends on what options, what opportunities are out there. Its difficult to change significantly for us at this stage. Its a challenge. We need to improve.Ž And improving the team is Yzermans main job. Does he do it through free agency, like last summer, when he signed defenseman Dan Girardi and forward Chris Kunitz? Or a trade, like he did last summer, when he swapped forward Jonathan Drouin for defenseman Mikhail Sergachev? Does he bring up some kids, like he did with forwards Yanni Gourde and, late in the season, Tony Cirelli? Does he make changes to coach Jon Coopers staff? You kind of look at everything,Ž he said. Kunitz can be an unrestricted free agent July 1. So can defenseman Andrej Sustr. Forward Matthew Peca can be an unrestricted free agent. Headed to restricted free agency are forwards J.T. Miller, Cedric Paquette and Adam Erne, defenseman Slater Koekkoek and goalie Louis Domingue. Plus, forward Nikita Kucherov is eligible to sign a contract extension July 1. Also, forward Tyler Johnsons no-trade clause kicks in July 1, so that is something to be considered. The players naturally believe in the current group and will reassemble in early September for training camp intent on reaching their goal, which is the same one they have had since 2015, when they lost to the Blackhawks in the Cup final. I definitely think were capable,Ž forward Ryan Callahan said. Our body of work has shown that were right there. The guys that we have in that (locker) room have the ability to take that next step. The core has been together for quite a while and accomplished some good things. We want to win together, thats for sure.Ž The core, with a few tweaks, will remain largely intact for the 2018-19 season. Kunitz, who will be 38 in September, might find a better offer elsewhere. Sustr and Koekkoek, healthy scratches toward the end of the regular season and throughout the playoffs, could do well with a change of scenery. There could be a trade or two, mostly minor unless Yzerman moves Johnson while he still has the flexibility. Cooper said there is a razor-thinŽ line between the top teams in the league and those at the bottom. He believes his team is poised to get over that Eastern Conference final hump after stumbling in a Game 7 during the 2016 playoffs and again this spring. He believes the Lightning had the talent to do that this year but added it has to improve. The Capitals improved last offseason, not by adding a big piece, but by adding younger, faster players. It helped them that Alex Ovechkin, their best player, changed his game to become more of a two-way player. Perhaps one of the Lightnings top scorers could do the same. That is one way to keep the Stanley-Cup-contender window open.When you have a guy like (Andrei Vasilevskiy) in net, thats what you build upon,Ž Stamkos said. And we have so many great young players, the expectations are going to be just as high. Its about fulfilling them.Ž Getting back to the question at heart: Is this Lightning team good enough or does Yzerman have a lot of work ahead of him this offseason? I dont know if there is an exact answer for you,Ž Yzerman said. Well find out a year from now. Well try to improve. We need to be better. A lot of positives (this season). Got to Game 7 of the conference finals, but ultimately, if were trying to win the Stanley Cup, we need to improve.Ž Noteworthy: The NHL awards are June 20 in Las Vegas, with Victor Hedman a finalist for the Norris Trophy (top defenseman), Vasilevskiy a finalist for the Vezina Trophy (top goalie) and Yzerman a finalist for GM of the year. .

By JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON „ LeBron James and the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers wont get any sympathy from the Celtics when they return to Boston for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. Already laboring to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals with a supporting crew made mostly of cast-offs and throw-ins, James lost the only other All-Star on the roster on Saturday when Kevin Love was declared out for the series finale with a concussion. Now, in what could be his final game in a Cleveland uniform „ again „ James will have to do it largely on his own. In Boston, where the Celtics are perfect so far this postseason. And in a series where the road team hasnt really even come close. Theres something different about LeBron, period,Ž Cleveland forward Larry Nance Jr. said after James scored 46 with 11 rebounds and nine assists on Friday night to send the series to a decisive seventh game. I think (coach Tyronn Lue) said it best: Were going into a Game 7 with the baddest dude on the planet on our team. I like our chances.Ž James is having what could be the best postseason of his career, averaging 33.9 points and just under nine assists and rebounds, with seven 40-point games, two buzzer beaters, and a sweep of top-seeded Toronto. But hes played in every game this season „ Sunday will be his 100th „ and it showed in the Game 5 loss to the Celtics.NBA: Eastern Conference FinalsLeBron, back in Boston, for another Cavaliers farewellBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ Kevin Love wont be able to help LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Game 7 against the Celtics. Love was placed in the NBAs concussion protocol and the All-Star forward will miss Sundays series finale of the Eastern Conference finals, a personal blow and yet another challenge for Cleveland to overcome. The Cavaliers said Love, who inadvertently bashed heads with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Game 6, experienced concussion-like symptoms Saturday before the teams flight to Boston. Moments before the Cavs sent a news release updating Loves status, coach Tyronn Lue held a confusing teleconference during which he said the 29-year-old was still being evaluated and there was a possibility he could play. However, like everything else in this erratic, convoluted season for Cleveland, things changed quickly. Now, the Cavs will be without their secondleading scorer and top rebounder as they try to win their fourth straight conference title against a younger team that is 10-0 at home in the playoffs. Love is averaging 13.9 points and 10.0 rebounds in 17 playoff starts, and hes the No. 2 scoring option for the Cavs, who have leaned on James harder than ever this p ostseason.NBA: Eastern Conference FinalsCavs Kevin Love to miss Game 7 By BARRY WILNERAssociated PressNEW YORK „ When veteran Todd Desgrosseilliers was recovering from battle wounds, he went back to a boyhood love: fly fishing. The organization he now leads has 8,500 participants, one of whom was so inspired by Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing that he told Desgrosseilliers: This program saved my life.Ž Desgrosseilliers group for disabled veterans is one of many receiving funding though the Bob Woodruff Foundation which this week secured an agreement with the NFL to support such initiatives. The Bob Woodruff Foundation provides us with a grant each year that supports one of our largest programs, rod building,Ž Desgrosseilliers says. We had over 900 veterans participate in it as part of a larger core of activities we have that include fly fishing education and outings. When our participants are able to come to the meetings, the rod building provides them with an activity that kind of brings them together, creates camaraderie.Ž Such pastimes create more than that. For Desgrosseilliers, who learned to fly fish with his great-grandfather and grandfather in Maine, it has been an effective therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder and vertigo he suffered after a traumatic head injury in combat. There are 222 programs nationwide under the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing umbrella. They stage local and regional events as well as national destination trips; 400 members will go on a variety of excursions this year, including to Alaska or the Florida Keys. Its a group of disabled veterans coming together with folks who care about them, and they are involved in an activity that is fun,Ž Desgrosseilliers says. We partner our programs with fly fishing organizations to provide the (3,500) volunteers who know how to do the fly fishing basics.Ž The Woodruff Foundation was founded in 2006 after reporter Woodruff was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq. To date, the foundation has invested more than $55 million to find, fund and shape programs that have empowered veterans, service members and their families. Its $2 million affiliation with the NFL announced this week wil l bolster the grant work done by the foundation. The NFL is such a prominent American brand and one that has a longstanding commitment to the veteran community,Ž says Marshall Lauck, the foundations chief growth and marketing officer. This is not something new to them; their history with supporting veterans and active military members is strong. This is a time with increased interest on their part in how they can most effectively support the veteran community (through nonprofits). Our expertise can be very helpful for the NFL in its goals in supporting these communities.ŽNFLNFL teams up with Woodru Foundation to help veteransBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressARLINGTON, Va. „ Raw emotion came from Alex Ovechkin as he wore an Eastern Conference championsŽ hat for the first time. Oh my God,Ž he said. Its unbelievable. I cant explain my emotions. Im just happy for my boys, for organizations, for fans. Finally.Ž Finally. Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals will play for the Stanley Cup. Its a journey 14 years in the making from Ovechkin being the first overall draft pick to the greatest goal scorer of this generation „ and a player who until this year hasnt made it out of the second round of the playoffs through little fault of his own. Yet hes gotten an uneven proportion of the blame. Ovechkin essentially willed the Capitals to the Cup Final with 12 goals, 10 assists and the best postseason of his career. In one spring, the 32-yearold Russian superstar has ended Washingtons 20-year final drought, slayed demons and destroyed the old narrative that he cant get the job done when it matters most. The special thing is because were winning,Ž Ovechkin said before the Capitals left for Las Vegas. Thats the whole thing. Thats all I can say. We win and we move forward. Weve never been in this position before. All my career, I played for this team, and we never get the success like that.Ž Ovechkin bore the brunt of nine playoff appearances ending after the first or second round despite being a point-agame player. With time running out on chasing the trophy he knew all about as a kid, this season has featured a differentlooking player. General manager Brian MacLellan sees a new level of maturity on and off the ice that he believes comes from Ovechkin getting married. A different offseason training regimen allowed Ovechkin to produce more at even strength, and the result was an NHL-leading 49 goals. I think the way he plays this year is more within the team structure,Ž MacLellan said. This is the most systematic hes played throughout his career, in my mind.Ž In the playoffs, Ovechkin has raised his game even further. His vintage physicality and his willingness to get his body in front of shots and hustle down ice on the backcheck have been noticeable. When you see him blocking shots, you see him coming back hard, you see him playing physical, hes getting more and more excited,Ž linemate Tom Wilson said. It seems like every round you win, hes playing even harder. And thats what you need out of your top guys. When hes going, youre aware hes on the ice. Everyone in the building knows hes on the ice.Ž During the third round, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said Ovechkin has taken 14 years of frustration out in one playoffs.Ž Ovechkin is reluctant to talk about previous playoff disappointments, but theyve been tied to him. Even though this is a team sport, someone has to be the greatest player to never win the Cup. Until now, arguably thats Ovechkin, a label he has the chance to shed beginning in Game 1 of the final Monday at the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.NHL: Stanley Cup FinalsOvechkin slays demons on “ rst trip to Finals

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, May 27, 2018 / The SunBy DAVE HYDESun Sentinel (TNS)The first time Andre Dawson drove a hearse, he turned to the woman in the casket and said, completely serious, "I'll do my best to make sure this isn't bumpy." The first time he told Hall of Fame baseball friends Tim Raines and Jim Rice he was in the funeral business, they stared at him with what Dawson realizes is a universal blank look and finally said, "You're doing what?" The first time he even told his wife, Vanessa, about his interest in buying a funeral home a decade ago, she purposely did nothing at all. Said nothing. "I ignored him," she said. They're together in the office at Paradise Memorial Funeral Home in the south Miami-Dade community of Richmond Heights that they've owned for a decade. She gave a wry smile. "I then saw the funds getting depleted," she said. This is a story of "Six Feet Under" meeting "Sixty Feet Six Inches," a TV show about a funeral home mashing up with a book about baseball. Dawson, who spent 21 years in the major leagues playing with the Expos, Cubs, Red Sox and Marlins, does everything except embalm bodies. He comforts families. Ushers at services. Drives the hearse and limousine. Goes to homes and hospitals to collect bodies. And, when requested, poses for pictures. "Hawk?" one man said, using Dawson's nickname, when the Hall of Famer appeared at the man's home one night to collect a deceased family member. "Is that you?" This turn of careers surprises even Dawson, whose 13-year relationship with the Marlins ended after new owner Derek Jeter took over. Owning a funeral home wasn't a dream or even a plan as much as the falling of a procession of dominoes. He was one of six partners investing in a north Miami funeral home his brother ran. That led to him being approached about buying this Richmond Heights funeral home when it went up for sale. He talked with the pastors and leaders and saw it was a community service more than anything. "I was brought in to secure financing," Dawson, 63, said. The state inspected the funeral home and found violations. It also had prior violations Dawson didn't know about. Faced with this, he tried to sell it. "I thought people were nickel-and-diming me, so I said I'll keep it and run it myself," he said. Eight months later, with a new name and refurbished building, Paradise Memorial opened. "I try to stay in the background," Dawson said. "I don't want to be out front. I never named the funeral home. How crazy that would be? I answer a lot of questions, as it is, when people find out what I do. "I think they have an issue with, not the dead in a sense, but how at times it can feel a little morbid. They look at me and stare. They just stare at me. I hand them my business card." This is the first time in 13 seasons Dawson isn't a presence at Marlins games, counseling players, helping coaches and generally being a veteran sounding board. New owner Jeter fired Dawson, Tony Perez, Jack McKeon and Jeff Conine from those roles. He doesn't watch Marlins games. He makes appearances for the Cubs now. But he keeps up with Marlins players, current and former. He still texts Giancarlo Stanton on occasion, as he did a few weeks ago with Stanton in a slump. "You know what's coming," he wrote, meaning a hot run for Stanton. He still keeps a picture of late pitcher Jose Fernandez, a former Tampa Alonso standout who died in a late-night boat crash, on his phone as, "my keepsake. I loved Jose. Loved his vigor, his energy, his competitiveness." And he thought the Marlins should have been, "a little more hands-on with him. I'm talking on the field. Between his games. "I'm not the one to make that call. But it starts early, if you don't want it to get out of hand. Have him tone down things … even things like chasing fly balls. Let him know, 'We want you to take care of yourself.' Reel him in. 'We want you for 162 games, not 16 starts.' It was sensitive. No one wanted to do it because who he was." He stood up after an interview in the viewing room of his funeral home and flexed his bad left knee, the one replaced with complications 12 years ago. He's had seven surgeries on both knees. But there's a funeral to plan, and business to be done. His wife, two uncles and son are part of his hand-picked, churchbased team. "I always thought this was an extension of the church," he said. "God placed me here for a reason," Dawson said. "If you had told me a while back I'd be doing this, I'd say, 'Not gonna happen." I'm both feet in now. It's been a learning experience for me. "One thing about people dying, people getting married … it divides families. I try not to be a psychologist. I try to just help them through the process. "I see people come bac k weeks after (the service) and I tell them, that's one wound that doesn't completely heal. You can put a Band-Aid over it, but you're always going to have your moments." His moment typically comes when he's at a baseball function, or just signing a fan's autograph request and the normal question comes: "What are you doing now?" "I take a deep breath, pause and say, 'I own a funeral home. No, I don't do any embalming, I own the funeral home.' And then I know what's coming." He hands them his new life's business card from six feet under. right now, I definitely wouldnt be as optimistic as I am. But this race, if you qualify 32nd if youre slow, youre not going to drive to the front. If you qualify 32nd because you have an issue and you dont feel that you should be there, then you have a pretty big opportunity. There are a lot of different ways you can play if you have a fast car.Ž Daly qualified 31st in the 33-car field, getting Thom Burns Racing and the No. 18 Honda sponsored by the U.S. Air Force into one of auto racings most prestigious events. Id say were a 16 seed,Ž Daly said, noting all the upsets in the NCAA Tournament in March. But just like the tournament, anything can happen in this race. We see it all the time: Things change. Things go from really bad to really good. Just one pit stop can change things from all over the place.Ž Daly doesnt have a full-time ride in the IndyCar Series this season. The 26-yearold Daly will make his NASCAR debut in August when he jumps into a Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing and competed in the Xfinit y Series race at Road America in Wisconsin. Still, IndyCar is his first choice and delivering a solid result Sunday could lead to more options in the future. We sort of know where were at,Ž Daly said. We have realistic expectations: We want to have a long Sunday. We want to be there the whole time, the whole race and have a shot to have a good finish at the end.Ž Rossi and Daly failed to make it to the end of The Amazing Race.Ž The roommates ended up fourth, eliminated just before the finale. It was a disappointing conclusion after competing around the g lobe. The y sto pp ed in Iceland, Belgium, Morocco, France, the Czech Republic, Zimbabwe, Bahrain, Thailand and Hong Kong, winning a race-high four legs but finishing last in Hong Kong and getting cut. Among the challenges they faced: traversing a suspension line in Iceland, completing a sky climbŽ in Belgium, sailing a dinghy in France, building a trebuchet in France, singing and dancing in Zimbabwe and eating scorpions in Thailand. They were slowed and eventually done in by a tricky street puzzle in Hong Kong at night. It was definitely a wild experience,Ž Daly said. Added Rossi: It wasnt for fame or money or anything like that. It was just to truly try to help promote my brand and the rising IndyCar Series.Ž They found themselves paired up again Thursday night at the Last Row Party,Ž an annual celebration of the final three qualifiers that raises scholarship money for journalism students. Daly, Rossi and lastplace qualifier Jack Harvey also earned a little money. Daly was presented a check for 31 cents. Rossi got one for 32 cents, and Harvey landed one for 33 cents. The paychecks served as reminders of how quickly things can change at Indy, where Rossi was a surprise winner two years ago, a challenger in 2017 and now someone looking to deliver a real-life amazing race. This place owes no one anything,Ž he said. You dont deserve to be in it by any stretch of the imagination. Going from fighting to be in the Fast Nine so you can hopefully fight for the pole to the next day literally being next to last just shows you that every day you have to respect it and you have to appreciate the opportunity you have to be able to drive on it. Thats what makes it so s p ecial.Ž500From Page 1By BETH HARRISAssociated PressARCADIA, Calif. „ Victor Espinoza shook Accelerates neck to encourage him leaving the starting gate. That got the usually slow-breaking horse away in good position. Then Espinoza waited. With pacesetting Dr. Dorr and City of Light going at it up front, Accelerate and Espinoza laid third before rallying in mid-stretch to win the $500,000 Gold Cup at Santa Anita on Saturday by 4 lengths over Dr. Dorr, trained by Bob Baffert. Accelerate ran 1 miles in 2:01.38 and paid $5.80, $3 and $2.10 at 9-5 odds. He had a lot of patience, a lot of confidence in the horse,Ž winning trainer John Sadler said. He was riding confidently in the sense that he knew his horse could get the distance.Ž Dr. Dorr, owned by Bafferts wife, Jill, returned $4.20 and $2.60 and had his three-race winning streak snapped. City of Light, the 6-5 favorite, was another 1 lengths back in third and paid $2.20 to show in the Grade 1 race. City of Lights threerace winning streak ended when Accelerate turned the tables on his rival. Accelerate finished second as the favorite by a neck to City of Light in the Oaklawn Handicap last month in Arkansas. Espinoza swung the 5-year-old son of Lookin At Lucky out and drifted four-wide into the stretch before Accelerate gained the lead under the whip. I was hoping to be on the inside but at the three-eighths I knew it wasnt going to happen,Ž Espinoza said. I knew the outside horse (City of Light) was getting tired, so I just kept following and had to be patient.Ž Accelerate carried high weight of 125 pounds „ four more than his rivals „ under the handicap conditions. What we kind of forget in modern-day horse racing is that because he already won a Grade 1, hes the high weight under 125 pounds and was giving weight to every other horse at a mile and a quarter,Ž Sadler said. That makes his win that much more impressive, when you give away four pounds to the competition at this distance.Ž City of Light won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap on March 10, one of his four victories in eight starts. He had never finished worse than second until Saturday. Accelerate really ran strong at the end and we couldnt go with him,Ž jockey Drayden Van Dyke said. The victory, worth $300,000, increased Accelerates career earnings to $1,712,480, with six wins in 19 starts. He looked beautiful today,Ž Sadler said. Hes a 5-year-old, a strong horse, a happy horse. Sometimes I look to keep him in the barn, but hes just doing so well, he says, I should be running, so thats what we did.Ž Sadler said Accelerate will be pointed toward the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar on Aug. 18. Pavel was fourth, Prince of Arabia was fifth and Chile-bred Full of Luck finished last. In the $300,000 Gamely Stakes for fillies and mares, 14-1 shot Sophie P won by a nose in a photo finish under Kent Desormeaux. Trained by Jim Cassidy, the Britain-bred mare ran 1 ‡ miles on turf in 1:48.53 and paid $30, $11.80 and $6.80 in the Grade 1 race. Ireland-bred Madame Dancealot returned $5.40 and $3.40. Argentinabred Madame Stripes was another neck back in third and paid $5.60 to show. In the $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes on turf, 4-5 favorite Itsinthepost won by 1 lengths under Julien Leparoux, who replaced the injured Tyler Baze. The 6-year-old gelding bred in France ran 1 miles in 2:02.10 and paid $3.80, $2.40 and $2.10 in the Grade 2 race. Kenjisstorm returned $4.60 and $3. Frank Conversation was another 2 lengths back in third and paid $4 to show.HORSE RACING: Santa AnitaAccelerate spurts ahead in stretch to win Grade 1 Gold CupAP PHOTOIn a photo provided by Benoit Photo, Accelerate and jockey Victor Espinoza win the Grade I, $500,000 Gold Cup horse race yesterday at Santa Anita in Arcadia, Calif.

By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressFORT WORTH, Texas „ While Justin Rose felt good about his four-stroke lead after three rounds at Colonial, he wasnt yet counting down the holes left in the Fort Worth Invitational. I think Ive won and lost actually from four ahead, so Ive got experience both ways,Ž Rose said after shooting a 4-under 66 on Saturday to get to 14 under. Just shows you cant get ahead of yourself.Ž Rose also remembers how he won his PGA Tour season debut, a surprise in Shanghai in October after he began the final round of the HSBC Champions eight shots behind Dustin Johnson, then the No. 1 player in the world. Ive got experience the other way,Ž Rose said. So you can see how things can go both ways real quick. ... Great position going into tomorrow, yeah. Look forward to putting it away, but I kind of know there are going to be challenges out there.Ž Fifth-ranked Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion and Olympic gold medalist with eight PGA Tour victories, led by four over playing partner Emiliano Grillo and defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. Grillo shot 69 while Koepka had a 67. On a steamy day in North Texas „ with temperatures in the upper 90s and it feeling even warmer „ Rose birdied the first three holes to quickly extend his lead from one to four over Grillo, who had eight pars in a row before consecutive birdies at Nos. 9 and 10. You cant drink enough (water) out there,Ž Rose said. Yeah, it was a factor today. I struggled a little bit on the bad nine with my focus. ... I was really trying to put one foot in front of the other and stay committed.Ž The closest Grillo got after the opening stretch was three strokes, when he was 11 under with an 8-foot birdie at No. 10. Rose regained his four-stroke edge with a birdie at the 616-yard 11th hole.GOLF: Fort Worth InvitationalRose shoots 66 to take 4-shot lead into “ nale

BUSINESS / CLASSIFIEDS / REAL ESTATESECTION D Sunday, May 27, 2018 Dont get taken for a ride this summer at the theme parkThe best way to save money at theme parks this summer is simple. Dont go. Peak season means peak pricing. Admission discounts can be hard to “nd, and nearby hotels jack up their rates. Add in the always-in”ated prices of food, souvenirs and parking, and youre buying a pretty expensive day out. At the mega-parks operated by Disney and Universal, a family of four can easily spend $1,000 per day. If youre determined to visit a theme park this summer, heres how to rein in costs while keeping your sanity.Beware of too-good-to-betrue pricesAs prices rise, scam artists pounce, offering discounted tickets and unusedŽ passes for sale to those desperate for a bargain. Often what theyre selling is fake. Even if the passes are legit, they may be unusable since some parks now use biometrics „ speci“cally, “nger scans „ to link passes to the original buyers. Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com, advises against buying from strangers, whether its on the street in front of the park or through eBay, Craigslist, social media or any other sites that connect private parties. Better places to look for discounts include: „Your employer, if youre a local. „Warehouse clubs such as Costco or Sams Club. „Groupon and other deal sites. „AAA, AARP and other member groups. „The parks Twitter or Facebook feeds. „CityPass, which offers a bundle of discounted tickets to area attractions. „Authorized resellers such as Undercover Tourist and Visit Orlando. „Vacation packages that include hotel rooms, tickets and sometimes ”ights. If nothing else, you usually can save a few bucks and avoid yet another line by buying your tickets online from the parks site. Grab a parking pass, too. A single-day parking pass at Busch Gardens Williamsburg costs $16 in advance online and $20 on site.Know when to splurge to skip the linesDisney has the free FastPass system, but other parks charge „ sometimes quite a lot „ for line-cutting privileges.

American Express is piloting a program that will allow merchants to reward customers for purchasing speci“c items at their stores, starting with online merchant Boxed. AmEx is starting small: giving bonus rewards points to Boxed customers who buy Dove soap, Planters nuts, Cheerios cereal and a handful of other items. But AmEx expects to open the program to nearly all their merchants in the coming months. Customers will bene“t by expanding the number of ways they can earn points. The program also helps Amex, by giving merchants another reason to keep accepting American Express cards, which tend to be the most expensive for merchants to process. Credit card companies have long been able to reward spending at particular types of merchants, using what are known as merchant codes. Thats how credit cards are able to give extra points or cash back on gasoline, travel, hotels and other broad categories. But targeting individual items on a stores shelf was a tough barrier to break. Merchants inventory systems are different from company to company. AmEx says they were able to solve the problem using blockchain technology developed by Hyperledger. It enables AmEx and merchants to generate product-targeted offers while allowing merchants to keep their own inventory management systems. Beyond promoting speci“c items, the change will also let American Express and its merchant customers ON THE MONEYCredit cards to perfect targeting programsBy KEN SWEETTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis Oct. 4, 2016, le photo shows a mockup of an American Express Platinum Card provided by the company, in New York.

Mike Kaeding would like to know how his real estate development and management company will be affected by two big changes „ the deductibility of business meals, and a 20 percent income deduction for many owners of what are called pass-through businesses. Big corporations already know their tax rates are falling, and all businesses can get bigger deductions for equipment purchases. But small business owners and tax advisers are still waiting for the IRS to write regulations and guidelines explaining and enforcing many parts of the law that is itself more than 500 pages long. We have a high level of uncertainty and that makes it dif“cult,Ž says Kaeding, president of Norhart in Forest Lake, Minnesota. The American Institute of Certi“ed Public Accountants, a professional group, has asked the IRS to expedite regulations on business meals and the 20 percent deduction. Ken Rubin, a CPA with Rubin Brown in St. Louis, says clients have been asking his opinion about what is and isnt deductible. These are unclear, signi“cant items that small businesses are worried about,Ž says Rubin, who is also a member of the AICPAs tax executive committee. Small corporations structured like General Motors or Apple know theyll have a 21 percent tax rate, compared to a previous range of 15 percent to 35 percent „ the same change the big companies are getting. And many small manufacturers and construction companies will be able to use whats known as the cash basis method of accounting, a much simpler system than the method required before. But a survey of 603 owners taken in early April by Wells Fargo and Gallup showed many owners were still in the dark. Thirty-nine percent said they dont know how the law will affect their companies. A third said it had already helped their companies or would do so, and 27 percent didnt expect it to bene“t their businesses. For owners of pass-through businesses „ sole proprietors, partners and owners of companies structured as S corporations „ the uncertainty around the 20 percent deduction comes from the list of ways they could be disquali“ed.

D2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, May 27, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com target promotions to very speci“c customers. Merchants could use the program as an inventory management system, creating promotions for certain items they need to sell or want to clear off their shelves „ like an odd colored blender, for instance. They can create programs based on a time of day, day of the week, by incentivizing a customer to download their app. The number of ways merchants can reward customers with Membership Reward points will be exponentially increased,Ž said Chris Cracchiolo, who heads up the Membership Rewards program for AmEx. The new program differs from another that American Express has run for several years known as Amex Offers. That program offers coupons or additional reward points to customers who spend money at a particular merchant. While American Express customers are targeted for a particular offer based on their spending behavior, AmEx Offers were never able to target speci“c products. Credit card companies also want to in”uence how customers spend their points. HSBC started a pilot program earlier this year that sent marketing emails to 75,000 customers using algorithms developed by St. Louisbased company Maritz. A portion of customers received an arti“cial intelligence-recommended category of credit card reward „ travel, merchandise, gift cards or cash back „ while the rest received standard marketing emails. Roughly 70 percent of the targeted customers who ended up redeeming their points chose the recommendation generated by the computer. While AmEx will largely leave it up to merchants to decide what products to promote, certain categories like tobacco, liquor and “rearms will be banned.CREDITFROM PAGE 1 Express Unlimited pass can cost up to $160 per person on peak days. Plus, parks typically limit the number of skip-theline passes and can run out quickly when crowds swell. Since youre already bypassing the best advice about managing lines „ which is to visit only when kids are in school „ youll want to consider other tactics. Avoid the busiest days, which you can “nd using the skipthe-line pricing calendars or crowd calendars for your targeted park. Other ways people try to beat the crowds: „Be there when the gates open. „Visit the most popular attractions “rst. „Use single-rider lines. „Use apps that estimate wait times to plan your attack. „Stay late. Crowds often start to thin an hour before closing. Youre still going to spend a lot of time waiting. If youre a local, you can bail when it gets too crazy and come back another day. If, however, this is a once-in-a-lifetime trip at a time when crowds will be thick, splurging on line-skipping passes could mean actually getting to enjoy all the attractions you came to see, Niles says. You may get a discount by being an annual pass holder, buying in advance or opting for a vacation or other bundle. Universal Express Unlimited passes, for example, are included for guests who stay at Loews Porto“no Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando and Loews Royal Paci“c Resort. The savings could pay for, or at least dramatically offset, the cost of your room.Make a food planA common frugal hack is to keep a cooler in your car or hotel room and retreat there for a picnic lunch. If that doesnt appeal to you, research the parks outside-food policies in advance. You dont want to discover at the gate that you have to give up your snack stash „ or that you could have brought more. Some parks offer prepaid meal plans or passes that can be a good deal. Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, has an all-day dining pass for $31.99. Users can get a meal or snack every 90 minutes throughout the day. Some general ideas: „Start with a hearty, high-protein breakfast before you enter the park to stave off the munchies. „Lunch is typically cheaper than dinner at sit-down restaurants, so have your big meal earlier and plan on a snack later. (Make reservations if you can, or arrive before the lunch rush.) „Soda prices are outrageous and can add up fast, especially when youre chugging sugary goodness in the heat. Bring water bottles or opt for souvenir cups with free re“lls. One “nal tip: Give each kid $20 or so to spend on souvenirs or extra snacks with the understanding that when the moneys gone, its gone. That will cut way down on the begging, giving you a little peace. Youre going to need it.

Twitter: @lizweston.NERDFROM PAGE 1 companies, the business income is passed throughŽ to the owners 1040 forms, and they pay tax based on individual rather than corporate rates. Certain business owners like lawyers, accountants, doctors and consultants wont qualify for the full deduction unless their taxable income is below $157,500 for single “lers or $315,000 for joint “lers, and the amount of the deduction will decline as taxpayers incomes rise. The same goes for business coaches, public speakers, therapists „ according to the law, any trade or business whose principal asset is the reputation or skill of one or more of its employees.Ž But the IRS has yet to weigh in on a number of issues, including the calculations businesses must make to determine the income that can qualify for the deduction. Some owners know they will get the deduction and plan to make the most of it, including Larry Patterson, who owns a Glass Doctor repair franchise in Carrollton, Texas. I have more money to invest in growth,Ž he says. He plans to expand his companys premises and do some hiring. But Ted Ma, who has two businesses, one as a public speaker and the other in sales, says hes in limbo. The lack of clear information available to determine exactly what applies to my situation has been both confusing and frustrating,Ž says Ma, who lives in Point Richmond, California. Hes not sure as he makes quarterly estimated tax payments whether hes overpaying or underpaying. He also wonders as he takes prospective clients and customers out for meals whether hell be able to deduct them. The meal is a major part of how I do business,Ž he says. Thats another source of frustration and confusion.Ž The uncertainty as the IRS writes the regulations could last into 2019 and beyond. Regulation projects can range from months to years „ if ever “nalized. And each project takes a different amount of time,Ž says Steve Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the UrbanBrookings Tax Policy Center. Many accountants have started making educated guesses. CPA Angela Dotson expects most small businesses to pay less in taxes. Owners who have multiple businesses will have more uncertainty, but the bread-and-butter companies that hire most people, theyre not going to have the most issues,Ž says Dotson, whos with the accounting “rm Aprio in Atlanta. But smaller corporations arent guaranteed a windfall. David Arenas real estate photography and marketing company had a pro“t last year low enough to give Alcove Media a tax rate of 15 percent. Hes expecting a 6 percentage point jump this year. I would have liked to maybe see a tiered (corporate tax) system again,Ž says Arena, whose company is based in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. Owners who are uncertain or who know theyre not likely to get a break can take steps to lower their tax bill, says Loreen Gilbert, owner of WealthWise Financial Services, an advisory “rm based in Irvine, California. Gilbert points to herself as an example: She doesnt expect to get the 20 percent deduction, so shes putting more money in her retirement account. Business owners should also meet as soon as possible with accountants to get a sense of how they could be affected, says Monic Ramirez, a CPA with Sensiba San Filippo in Morgan Hill, California. So much has changed in the new law. You need to sit down with your tax preparer and see what parts of this are going to bene“t your company and how can you position yourself to take advantage of it,Ž she says. Kaeding, though, is concerned about the cost of complying with the law „ he expects a higher bill from his accountant. And the confusion is a distraction from running his business. All the time we spend understanding the tax system does not help our customers,Ž Kaeding says.TAXFROM PAGE 1for these workshops is a new in-depth cybersecurity resource guide, which offers business owners information and af“liated resources to help meet the challenges of doing business in cyberspace.

Needa newJob? LookintheClassifieds! Good credit opens up a world you may not have known existed, like Platform 9 3/4 did for Harry Potter. If you jump on the credit-building train at 18, youll have an easier time renting an apartment, getting a car loan and setting up your own cellphone plan when you graduate (though I cant promise youll “nd butterbeer, like Harry did, at your “nal destination). But credit also makes it disturbingly easy to cover the eight pizzas your roommates decide to order. While independence is your reward for having good credit, not everyone is ready to build it responsibly in college. Know yourself, and choose a method that wont torpedo your goal as soon as you start.Why you need creditA quick primer: Your credit score shows lenders, landlords and “nancial institutions how likely you are to repay a debt or follow through on your commitments. After you start using credit, youll receive a score on an 850-point scale. In general, a good score is 690 or above, but know that it will take time to get there. A score of 650 to 699 could be considered a winŽ if youre in college and youve been building credit for a year, says Beverly Harzog author of The Debt Escape Plan.Ž Having good or excellent credit means: Lower interest rates on credit cards, car loans, mortgages and private student loans Eligibility for premium credit cards with fancy rewards More easily qualifying to rent an apartment Access to utilities without a deposit Cheaper car insurance in most states It can take six months after opening credit accounts to see your score. Many banks, credit cards and personal “nance websites show their members free credit scores.How credit worksThe factors that most in”uence your score are whether youve paid bills on time, how much credit youre using and how long your credit history is. When youre in the process of building credit, avoiding negative marks „ like late payments „ is your “rst priority. Rent payments generally wont affect your credit „ unless you dont make them, which could hurt it. But making student loan or car payments on time will elevate your score. Keep credit card balances low, and dont carry a balance from month to month, even if its small. Consider using the card to make one recurring payment, like your cellphone bill, says Billy Hensley, incoming president and CEO of the National Endowment for Financial Education. Set up autopay from your checking account to cover it.How to build itCredit cards probably come to mind “rst when you think of credit, but theyre just one way to show you can pay your bills on time. And theyre not for everyone. There are some credit cards out there just for students, but they can be hard to get approved for. Instead, you can become an authorized user on your parents card, which means theyll still be responsible for paying the debt, or get a secured card, which has a low credit limit and requires a deposit upfront. Before you get a credit card, Harzog says to ask yourself these questions: Do you have a checking account now, or when you were in high school? Are you able to use a debit card without overdrawing your account? Do you save at least some money from each paycheck? Do you keep track of how you spend any income you earn? If the answers are no, consider building credit another way. I am a big fan of credit-builder loans. You get a small loan „ usually through a credit union or community bank „ and the money sits in a bank account while you make on-time payments, building a credit score. Once its paid off, the money is yours. In the end, managing your money sensibly will naturally lead to a strong score. Its far more important to focus on paying bills on time (and paying the credit card bill in full every month),Ž Harzog says, than it is to focus on attaining a speci“c number by graduation.Ž Ask BriannaŽ is a column from NerdWallet for 20-somethings or anyone else starting out.

To be sure, student loan debt topped $1.5 trillion in the “rst quarter, according to the Federal Reserve. Thats a huge number. Its also true that more 60-plus people are carrying education debt, either for themselves, children or grandchildren, though thats a little misleading because due to the baby boom effect, there are simply more 60-plus people doing just about everything today. Average student loan debt now stands at about $39,000, which is more than $10,000 lower than average starting salaries, according to Mark Kantrowitz, a longtime student loan expert who recently founded privatestudentloans.guru, an independent website on paying for college that accepts no lender advertising. If students keep loans below their starting salaries „ or if parents keep borrowing below their current salaries for all their children „ they should be able to pay them off in a decade, Kantrowitz said. Student loans have acquired a panic reaction and been blamed for a cascading effect on the economy that they really werent responsible for,Ž Kantrowitz said, nodding to some data showing that college debt can delay home purchases. Even if the debt is manageable, however, experts say education debt often psychologically crowds out retirement saving. No matter how little someone owes on student loans, borrowers dont start saving for retirement or other goals like housing until its gone, some studies have shown. Whether the barriers are real or perceived, a handful of “nancial services “rms are beginning to offer college savings content on their 401k websites, including tools to help manage student loans and re“nance education debt. Recently, Fidelity Investments said 25 large employers have enrolled nearly 9,000 workers in its Student Debt Employer Contribution bene“t. It also added a Credible. com platform that lets employees shop for loan re“nance providers. Retirement savings companies are starting to think about ones total “nancial life, and these loans are particularly important factors for millennials,Ž said Stephen Dash, Credibles founder. All of that is great and there are certainly many families who are severely strapped by education debt. But really, all sorts of discretionary spending „ from lattes to luxury cars „ can derail retirement. And with education debt, at least there is a chance that the knowledge will lead to a job or a higher salary that actually will impact retirement in the long run. The trick is keeping overall costs down by selecting a program that wont cost vastly more than an eventual salary will cover, and then paying off whatever loans are taken as aggressively as possible. In the messy business of life, not everyone gets both of those right, but there are ways to recover. Six years ago, Jared Schulman graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in comparative cultures and politics, and $106,000 in student loan debt. For a short time, he unloaded trucks at a warehouse. Then he leapt at an entry-level position in the fundraising department of his alma mater, Michigan State University. He dug into database work there, setting himself up for landing his current job in data analytics and strategy for the athletic department at University of Texas in Austin in 2016. It comes with a pension plan and a solid future career path, he said. To get there, he drove his Honda CRV with 200,000 miles on it and rented space in a friends dining room in the early months. He still shares an apartment with friends to save on housing costs and has re“nanced his student loans, foregoing income-based repayment in order to pay it off sooner at a lower interest rate. He has already cut his debt to $51,000, and plans to pay off the rest in roughly four years, before age 31. I enjoyed my job at MSU a lot and could have stayed in Lansing the rest of my life,Ž he said. But the long-term career ladder was better with the move, and the debt helped him focus. Thats part of the push of debt,Ž he said. I knew I couldnt stay where I The JourneyBalancing college spending and retirement savingBy JANET KIDD STEWARTTRIBUNE NEWS SERVICEJOURNEY | 6

He also predicts that automakers and autoworkers would be very happyŽ with the outcome of talks to rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.Judge: President cant block critics on TwitterNEW YORK „ A federal judge in New York says President Donald Trump cannot block his critics on Twitter without violating the First Amendment. Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald issued the written decision Wednesday. In ruling, she said no government of“cial „ including the president „ is above the law. The ruling came in a case brought by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and individuals whod been blocked by Trump after criticizing him.Congress OKs Trump bid to widen private care at besieged VAWASHINGTON „ Congress delivered a victory to President Donald Trump by expanding private care for veterans as an alternative to the troubled Veterans Affairs health system. The sweeping measure would allow veterans to see private doctors when they do not receive the treatment they expected, with the approval of a VA health provider. Veterans could access private care such as when they endured lengthy wait times. The bill also would avert a disastrous shutdown of the Choice private-sector program.Uber ends selfdriving program in Arizona after fatal crashSAN FRANCISCO „ Uber is pulling its self-driving cars out of Arizona, a reversal triggered by the recent death of woman who was run over by one of the ride-hailing services robotic vehicles while crossing a darkened street in a Phoenix suburb. The decision announced Wednesday means Uber wont be bringing back its self-driving cars to the streets to Arizona, eliminating the jobs of about 300 people who served as backup drivers and performed other jobs connected to robotic vehicles.Trump eager to sign bill rolling back Dodd-Frank regulationsWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump says he is eager to sign a bill that will dismantle a chunk of the landmark Dodd-Frank act that grew out of the 2008 “nancial collapse. A day after the House voted to approve the bill, Trump tweeted Wednesday: Big legislation will be signed by me shortly.Ž He cited big changes to DODD FRANK.Ž The bill raises the threshold at which banks are deemed so big and plugged into the “nancial grid that if one were to fail it would cause major havoc.Comcast v. Disney: a fight for TwentyFirst Century FoxNEW YORK „ Comcast and Disney are on the verge of a head-to-head bidding war for Foxs entertainment properties. The potential battle for Twenty-First Century Fox comes as traditional entertainment companies try to amass more properties to compete better with technology companies such as Amazon and Net”ix for viewers attention „ and dollars.Vegas workers vote to authorize strike pressures casinosLAS VEGAS „ Two casino companies facing the threat of a strike from housekeepers, bartenders, servers and other key employees saw their shares slide. Other gaming-af“liated companies also are under pressure Wednesday. About 25,000 members of the Culinary Union have voted to authorize a strike at any time starting June 1. MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment Corp. say they expect to resolve pay and other issues. A walkout could hobble the citys world-famous resorts.Maker of candy hearts and Necco Wafers sold at auctionBOSTON „ The bankrupt maker of Necco Wafers, Sweethearts conversation hearts and other beloved American candies has a new owner. The Ohio-based Spangler Candy Co. had the winning $18.83 million bid for the New England Confectionery Co. at a federal bankruptcy auction in Boston. Spangler Candy Co. makes Dum Dums lollipops. Interest in Necco has focused on its sugar lineŽ of chalky wafers and candy hearts.
