News Wire Kahn named Agriculture Person of YearAt inaugural Highlander AwardSEBRING „ In March, Marvin Kahn got inducted into the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame, so it was only natural that he got the inaugural Highlander Award as 2017 Agriculture Person of the Year. Characteristic of Kahn, he accepted the award humbly, but uncharacteristic of him, he didnt stop to tell a story about his life, his wife, citrus or his lover for all three. There just wasnt time at the banquet on May 3. Still, almost everyone in Sebring knows his story and that of his parents, Jewish immigrants who arrived in the United States from Lithuania and migrated in 1923 to Floridas Heartland for the opportunity to own and run an orange grove. Mike Kahn, his father, got into the business in 1930 at age 32. After his death at age 52, Marvins mother, Sadie By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Sunday was a cloudy and rainy day in Highlands County as Subtropical Storm Alberto approached the U.S. Gulf Coast, dampening the Memorial Day weekend across the Gulf Coast. However, a 2 p.m. advisory from Highlands County Emergency Management of“cials downgraded the rainfall amounts the county was expected to receive through Tuesday. Highlands County is forecast to receive lower than previously forecast rain totals due to dry air wrapping around the storm. Due to this, the ”ood watch for Highlands County has been canceled,Ž the advisory said. An earlier forecast put the rainfall total at 3 to 7 inches. However, bands of showers with isolated thunderstorms were expected throughout the area Sunday, the advisory said. Thunderstorms that develop can produce strong gusty winds, locally heavy rains, deadly lightning strikes, and isolated tornadoes.ŽAlberto brings rain as it nears GulfASSOCIATED PRESS AND STAFF REPORTAVON PARK „ In the event of an emergency such as a car accident, medical call or “re, the Avon Park Fire Department has a new half-million dollar member of its rolling ”eet that is ready for just about anything. It is a 2018 Pierce Enforcer with a crew cab, a Cummins 450 HP turbo engine, a 1,250-gallon per minute pump and it holds 650 gallons of water. Avon Park Fire Chief Brad Batz said the “re engine was built in Wisconsin, and after a prep by the dealer, it came to the department in mid February. We spent some time putting equipment on it and installing mounting brackets,Ž he said. The “re engine has been out“tted with numerous tools and apparatuses for “re“ghting and to respond to car accidents, medical calls and other emergencies. Also, it carries the latest battery-operated extraction equipment. The tools are organized into various compartments with slide-out drawers on the truck such as the engineers compartment, which includes hose “ttings and connectors, a tool compartment, which has axes and other large tools, and a compartment with the extrication equipment.

Kevin Wayne Grice, 30, of Avon Park, has been charged with fraud on a “nancial institution, fraud by misuse of another persons identi“cation, fraud through illegal use of a credit card, theft of a credit card and petit theft. The investigation started after April 11 when the victim reported shed lost her debit card, then discovered charges she didnt authorize on her Mid-Florida Credit Union account: € 10:16 a.m. April 14 „ $100 Hart Marathon, Avon Park. € 10:16 a.m. April 14 „ $20.01 debit at Hart Marathon, Avon Park. € 10:20 a.m. April 14 „ $62.99 from ATM at Hart Marathon, Avon Park. € 2:04 p.m. April 14 „ ATM inquiry at Old Headricks, Avon Park. € 2:05 p.m. April 14 „ $43 from ATM at Old Headricks, Avon Park. € 10:09 a.m. April 15 „ $5 declined at La Preferida Deli Market, Avon Park. € 10:09 a.m. April 15 „ Authorization declined at La Preferida. All transactions used the personal identi“cation number (PIN), which only the victim should know, reports said. Video surveillance from both the Marathon and Old Headricks stores reportedly showed the same man and vehicle at both locations: A white four-door truck driven by a man in a white T-shirt and a distinctive hat. A search of the victims Facebook friends lead deputies to Grice, reports said, the victims boyfriend. She identi“ed him from surveillance videos, arrest reports said, and showed deputies a photo of her and him from Christmas, with him wearing the same hat. The victim told deputies she did not give him permission to for any of the charges listed above, and did not know how he obtained her debit card PIN.Boyfriend charged with illegal withdrawalsBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERTwo videos, photo help nab suspect GRICE LAKE PLACID „ Recreation Supervisor Harry Durbano asked the Town Council for money collected from user fees to purchase and pay for wiring and installation of new lights on the in“eld of softball “eld number “ve at the Lake June Ball Fields. The request was done at the regular monthly meeting on May 14. The amount asked for was $3,000 and was unanimously approved. Before Durbano even got up to the podium to speak, Councilman Ray Royce spoke enthusiastically on behalf of the agenda item. Let me start by saying, Mr. Mayor (John Holbrook), when we started the fund four to six years ago. This is exactly the type of thing we put the fund in place for, in order to generate the revenue to do,Ž Royce said. Where we should be spending money is on projects such as this.Ž Realizing he may have spoke a little soon, he further commented, so, after you all do your presentation, I hope someone will make a motion to approve up to the $3,000.Ž Town Attorney Bert J. Harris joked with Durbano and said that Royces recommendation to the council didnt come any better. Town Administrator Phil Williams joined in the and told Durbano that he may just want to be quiet and sit down. Durbano wasnt about to leave without asking for what he intended, even though he probably didnt have to. We just want to put a pole up in the backstop of “eld “ve,Ž Durbano said. Its kind of dark back there; its a liability and it makes it easier for the kids to play.Ž Councilwoman Debra Worley asked Durbano to check with Greg Foster if the town could use the benches that were once part of the youth ministrys basketball court that was on his property and is now defunct. Worley felt that if they werent being used, the town could use them as they are expensive, and it would be a shame to waste them. She felt that the benches should be sturdy since they were bought for young men and women in the “rst place. Durbano promised to check with Foster about them. There was no debating this item as all of the council members wanted to keep the players safe.There will be light at Lake June softball fieldsBy KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITERSMARTER 5 THINGS That Will Make You 1.

HUGE Steve ReinshuttleHearing Aid Specialist BC-HIS D.J. MitchellHearing Aid SpecialistPromo Code: 05282018 The above referenced story told of Vietnam, Oct. 20,1966, when a Marine AmTracŽ vehicle ran over a mine during daily operations. Six men were on board, three were killed in action and the other three wounded. Of the wounded, two would eventually succumb to their injuries. One of those was Cpl. Donald DonnieŽ L. Brown, the best friend of Sgt. Don Lariviere, who was present that day in another vehicle. The 2017 story also told of Larivieres search to locate the “nal resting place of his best friend. Unknown to most at the time, the story was glaringly incomplete. Shortly after the Veterans Day piece ran, Leslie Hill-Bennett, a resident of the Tampa Bay area, got a call from her father, David Hill, a lifelong resident of Sebring. He told her that, amazingly enough, there was a story in the Highlands News-Sun about the incident in Vietnam that had taken his brothers life. The story told of the Marines who had been killed and wounded but said nothing of his brother and Bennetts uncle, LCpl. Edwin Charles Hill. This was not the “rst time that Hills name had been missing from historical accounts. Each time his name was absent, it was another punch in the stomach for his family. It was especially hard on David, Bennetts father and Edwins brother. David was just 15 when his brother lost his life. He had only been able to make the trip to see his brother at the VA hospital in Virginia once before he succumbed to his wounds. David spent years not knowing the real story. As Bennetts father began reading her the names in the story over the phone, she was familiar with them all. But one in particular, Lariviere, stuck out. She had been looking for him for years.Ž As amazing and hard to believe as it is, he had been living right here in Sebring all along. The same town where her father lived, where she grew up, and the same town where Edwin had gone to high school. Bennett had heard more than one version of the events of that day that had turned out to be untrue. She decided to take matters into her own hands and began a search for the truth in 2011. Bennett had dug through endless military reports and web sites. She pursued every lead, name, email address and Facebook page. Anything she thought might help her to “nd out what really happened that day and why there seemed to be no mention of her uncle. No one seemed to remember him because he was so new,Ž Bennett said. Most of those involved were slow to get to know the new guys for fear of losing another friend. Lariviere mentioned previously that people would come in (to the unit) so fast that you didnt always know the people you were serving with. One of those involved that day was Don Romaine. In November of 1965 the Marine Corps formed a unit in the 1st AmTrac Battalion called the H-6 Platoon,Ž Romaine said in an email to Bennett. It combined Amtrac and artillery personnel to shoot direct and indirect “re.Ž Another member of the platoon, Roland E. Monette, told the story of that day via email to Bennett. I was LCpl. Hills commanding of“cer, 1st Armored Howitzer Platoon, 1st AmTrac Battalion, 3rd Marine Division. I knew him well,Ž Monette said. I was personally present during the entire engagement. Date was 20 Oct. 1966, about 9 a.m., along what we called Thunder Road, about three miles due south of Marble Mountain peak, near Danang, Quang Nam Province. Weather was at peak monsoon season, raining slightly at that time, muddy, misty, miserable day.Ž As Monette recalls, the incident was so tragic, and heavy casualties were sustained. Myself and another person pulled three injured Marines from the ”aming debris of the exploded amphibian tractor and doused their burning clothes and body armor with water in the adjacent rice paddy. LCpl. Hill was one of those three. He was conscious, able to stand very brie”y, but burnt badly and in great suffering. I personally attended to him, gave him morphine injection, got him off the dyke to protect against sniper “re, and personally helped get him into the medical evacuation helicopter. He was a “ne young man, a “ne young Marine. It was terrible when we later got the report from a hospital chaplain that he had died.Ž Because of the combined research done by Bennett and Lariviere, two chains of service members and family members have been connected or reconnected. After years of searching, Bennett and Lariviere have been connected through the unwittingly miraculous placement of a small article in one of the only papers where it could have made a difference. Now that these two individuals have met, the two chains become one. Im really not sure why his name went missing. It didnt in Sebring, of course. His name is on the memorial at The Circle downtown,Ž said Bennett. One thing I found is that a page in the chronology report was missing, but I found it eventually. Also, from speaking to everyone, Edwin was so new to their platoon nobody really got to know him because that was the way things were. Nobody knew he had passed from his wounds. He was wounded in October 1966 and the whole group went home in December 1966. He passed in January 1967. I think it was more that they just didnt know,Ž she continues. The Amtrac website, amtrac. org, has added his name for me as well, after contacting them years ago. I guess maybe it was just missing from the memories of the men who were there until I got in touch with all of them. I feel we must all remember a small town hero that just wanted more out of life than to be poor and work a meek job,Ž Bennett said. LCpl Edwin Charles Hill died of his injuries on Jan. 13, 1967. He was 19 at the time of his passing. He is buried at the Pinecrest Cemetery in Sebring. The others killed in action on that day „ LCpl. J. F. Burns, Cpl. R. D. Sisk, PFC J. D. Daniels, and Cpl. D. L. Brown „ who along with LCpl. Hill later died from his wounds. In the end, the lone survivor of that AmTrac that miserable day in Quang Nam Province was Sgt. R.M. Mejiano who was WIA. For the ones who were killed that day, God only knows why it happened. They served their country well.Ž „ Don RomaineHEROFROM PAGE 1out of that truck; it is set up for anything and everything,Ž Batz said. Its a rolling tool box.Ž The pump controls are on the top of the truck, not on the side, so the operator can have a 360-degree view so the “re can be viewed by the operator with the truck parked at any angle.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comWe are getting enough rain at this time but back in 1939 in March, central Floridas ridge section was suffering from a severe drought condition. It hadnt rained in months. The people were suffering, the cattle were dying and the farmers were struggling to salvage their parched crops. Citrus crops were in jeopardy, growers and residents alike longed for the relief of rain to drench the parched soil. The weather forecasters continued to predict no relief in sight until at least mid-April.Ž The drought continued. The situation worsened as to what to do about it. At this time, Floridas drought conditions were being nationally publicized in regard to the growers fear of damage to Floridas citrus crop. Miss Lillie Stoate, aka the rainmakerŽ at her home in Oxford, Mississippi learned of this situation and offered her talents to the Florida Citrus Commission. She would gladly come to Frostproof and make it rain.Ž In response to her offer, members of the citrus commission decided to give it a try and paid all expenses for the elderly frail-looking 68-year old Miss Lillie as she was affectionately called to come to Frostproof and end the devastating drought. She arrived early Friday afternoon with her suitcase and umbrella and after a short rest decided on just the right spot. A spot on the shores of Lake Reedy. She sat by the lake clutching her umbrella until sundown. Back at the lake by 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, she continued sitting through the day visiting with spectators who came to watch, including a Paramount News reel representative as well as representatives from the Associated Press, Tampa Tribune and other nationally recognized members of the press and broadcast media. There were many interested onlookers, as well as skeptics. She courteously declined to answer most questions, as she had a case of deafness. All questions had to be handwritten. Though there was no logical explanation, rain did fall every time Miss Lillie kept the vigil. It remains an unexplained phenomenon. She declined to talk about her peculiar powers she had. She would only insist that she did have the power, a power that had been in her family for many years. Finally on Sunday a few showers fell in nearby areas but not directly in Frostproof. It was not until Monday that rain began to pour and radio announcers on a nation-wide broadcast told of the fact that Frostproof was being deluged with a million dollar rain.Ž Miss Lillies 26-hour vigil by Lake Reedy had ended with great success! The on-looking crowd happily stood in the welcome downpour and cheered both Miss Lillie and the rain. The entire story, including Miss Lillies requested visit to Sebring and Orlando after leaving Frostproof, with the result of rain following her vigil in both instances, was broadcasted locally as well as nationally. After bringing Frostproof into nationwide prominence by producing drenching rains there, The Sebring Chamber of Commerce and citrus growers offered her a free weeks board and lodging at the Nancesowee Hotel if Miss Lillie would come. She did. Her daily vigil was sitting silently at City Pier on Lake Jackson, umbrella in hand watching for rain drops. The drought continued and the Sebring people began to talk out loud as to whether Miss Lillie was a phony. Undaunted by criticism, Miss Lillie stayed on clutching the umbrella that she would never need. No one seems to remember much about Miss Lillies departure, except that it was followed by a heavy downpour. The Sebring folks wondered if Miss Lillies powers were responsible.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to I died ... at Bunker Hill. Grapeshot tore through my body near New Orleans. Crushing hooves with riders as swirls of blue and gray „ and red „ crashed down on me in somewhat strange sounding places like Chickamauga, Antietam and Shiloh. The heat and swamp sucked at my last moments in the wilds of Cuba. A green fog of poisonous gas slithered over the side and into my trench, where water stood mixed with slime and blood. I lay face down in fetid pools clogged with jungle vines, lay with cold cheek against wet beach sand and fell from gingerbread doorways into cobblestone streets. I gasped for air but breathed only “re and oily water. I fell screaming from 14,000 feet, with shrapnel, ”ames and molten cockpit piercing me in a hundred places. Snow clung to my lashes, ice formed at the corners of my mouth, and a tiny wisp of vapor wafted off the crimson trickle from my ears. I fell forward and felt the jagged pain of bamboo beneath the water tearing at my ”esh. I felt the hot sands of the desert burning through my back until the sand felt strangely cold and then ... I felt ... nothing more. There was a sudden vacuum that sucked all the air away, and then a light with the brightness and heat of ten thousand suns in less than a millisecond before I dissolved. I died, but more than that, I was killed, before I was old enough to vote. I never knew the pleasure of savoring the memories that come with later years. I left mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, children, sweethearts, and friends to weep after me. Some of my former teachers, my small town librarian, and Coach sobbed openly when hearing the news. In learning of me, my sister ran screaming into her room. My brother wouldnt speak or eat for days. I lay where names and landscapes and faces were all foreign to me. To this day no one knows where the earth swallowed me. The seemingly endless, rolling sea became my secret sepulchre. I was tall and short and thin and heavy and young and older and cheerful and morose. I was a shop steward, a ditch digger, an insurance agent, a writer, an orange picker, a preacher, a ballplayer and the head of a grocery chain stretching from Baltimore to St. Louis. I lived around the corner, down the hall, over yonder, up the street, next door, above the garage, across the tracks, up the road a fair piece, on the hill, and out of a suitcase. I came from a family farm, newspaper, college campus, furniture factory, new car agency, and Broadway. Some folks called me Mick, or chink, bitch, coon, spic, homo, kike, and other really stupid names. Disgust you to read them? Think how it disgusted and hurt me to be called them. The meanness of those people in their gross ignorance upset, angered and frustrated me, but I served and died that even they could have their freedom of speech. I died that our liberty would not perish, that freedom would remain, that justice would prevail, that women and children would be safe from terror, that my home would be protected, that an idea would be proved right, that my buddy might live, because I was ordered into harms way, that we would push forward and that bosses back home could make more money. Sometimes I served and died for my country, sometimes my loved ones, sometimes for my ideals, and sometimes because „ well, sometimes in the horrible frightening noise and “re of battle „ sometimes I wondered why I served. But still, I served „ woman and man „ I served! This Memorial Day, its hoped youll think on these things. You are still free to think, speak and publish what you wish; free to worship, free to gather and to vote; free to succeed or to fail trying, because I gave the most I had „ my all. And for that, perhaps, you will pause a few moments in my honor; think and perhaps pray, in honor of others lost like me, or who also served but made it home, albeit, many disabled and „ certainly „ be thankful for those who serve today. Veterans realize the interruption of normal life brought by service to your country, and too many have known of my pain, my tears, and sickness of soul for the waste of human life. Yet, the giving of my life should not „ cannot „ be wasted. For perhaps somehow people „ voters, marchers, speakers, writers, the elected „ perhaps you, will “nd ways to collectively end the fright, the hurt, the grief, and the dying that is war. Especially the dying. My death, and thankfully, those veterans who gave so much, has extended the time given you to “nd that way. With the horrible weapons available today, the unstable hands that hover so near the mythical red buttons and the increased horror of vicious, frenzied terrorists, time is shorter than ever. After the next war there may be no widows, orphans, friends or veterans.  NOTE: This was written by Ed Barber of Gainesville, Florida. He wrote it while a college student during the Vietnam War. The editorial was “rst published in 1963 in the University of Florida daily student newspaper, the Florida Alligator, now The Independent Florida Alligator. Through the years, the editorial has been reprinted in books, in other newspapers and online. Periodically Barber revises the editorial slightly to make it current. This publication is the “rst of this revised version.I died ... Every Memorial Day, we remember those who died during active military service. But the day gives us a special opportunity to serve those who serve us. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, nearly 42 million American men and women have served during wartime. Nearly 1.2 million died while serving. Nearly 1.5 million were wounded. Since 9/11, nearly 7,000 U.S. service members have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 50,000 have been wounded many have debilitating injuries and mental challenges that have changed their lives forever. We may debate the rightness or wrongness of various engagements, but we know that freedom comes at a steep price and we honor those who have secured it for us. But we can do more. We can serve them back. There are many small things people can do that can make a world of difference,Ž said Jerry Newberry, assistant adjutant general at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Such as assisting the family of a service member who has been deployed. Family members go through a long period of wondering, worrying and waiting,Ž said Newberry. But they still need to deal with the car breaking down, a child getting sick, a death in the family. If you know of such families, reach out to them.Ž Or write an e-mail or letter. The troops „ particularly those recuperating in military hospitals „ love receiving e-mails, letters and care packages. You can do so at amillionthanks. org. Donate time. Your local Veterans Affairs of“ce, VFW and other legitimate organizations are in desperate need of volunteers. Organize a toy drive for children of deployed soldiers. Support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Provide gift cards to troops through Donate money. You can give to a variety of needed services for military members „ or support the Red Cross to provide basic necessities to service members in military hospitals. Go to and click on DonateŽ or Troop Support.Ž Lori Felix at Military. com offers additional suggestions that are simple and inexpensive. One is to volunteer to place ”ags on the grave sites of fallen servicemen and women. Your local American Legion or VFW will have the details. Felix writes that holiday weekends can be challenging times for those who are serving away from home. She suggests contacting the community relations of“ce at your local military base to invite a service member or two to dinner. Or do something kind for a wounded vet. The Walter Reed National Military Center has a Facebook page that provides inspiration and ideas for brightening a wounded vets day. CNN offers some great suggestions. Some disabled veterans are unable to drive. You can volunteer to give them a ride to their medical appointments at Disabled American Veterans ( You can donate your frequent ”yer miles so that family members can travel to the bedside of a hospitalized service member. That can be done through the Fisher House Foundations Hero Miles Program (“ CNN reports that more than a third of the men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have or will experience post-traumatic stress disorder.Ž The Puppies Behind Bars program trains companion dogs for veterans with PTSD.

Columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Serving those who serve usTom PurcellCOLUMNIST YOUR VIEW We should always rememberThere is a reason to recognize Memorial Day today and every year. Today we honor a very special group of Americans, men and women who served our country and who gave their lives in the service. Since those shots were “rst “red at Lexington and Concord in the Revolutionary War, over 1 million Americans have died in defense of our liberty and freedom. In peacetime and in war, these Americans answered our nations call and defended our American way of life. In honoring them today, we recognize their dedication, courage and sacri“ce, and we also celebrate the freedom they gave us. These people were much like you and I. They had the same hopes, dreams and ambitions but when they were called, they set aside their personal interests and answered a higher calling. In dying for our country, they passed on to us a legacy of liberty and freedom, and also passed on to us a commitment that we preserve what they died for and this commitment is to America. The character of those who died for us was one of a determination to be free and remain free. So we honor those people today, and when we, the living, ful“ll our commitments as good citizens of this country, we make America a living memorial to their dedication, courage and sacri“ce. We must pause today, if only for a moment, and remember their sacri“ces. If they were here today they would probably say to us, Make the most of your freedom and privileges. We purchased them for you with our lives.Ž We owe them at least that much, a moment of our time.Ž Let us all preserve the memories and remember. Be thankful you live in this great land of ours and be proud to be a part of it.Suzanne Krueger Lake PlacidDont forget about pesticidesThank you for publishing the article on the butter”ies. There is one important message that was not in the article and that is pesticides. Pesticides kill the caterpillars with a horrible death and contaminates the milkweed for future use. I have been raising monarchs for a few years and learned this right away. I now have an agreement with our bug control and fertilizer company that they are very careful near and around the plants. Also, a company sprays for mosquitoes in our community and I also have an agreement with them that they notify me when they have to spay so I have a chance to remove my plants. I appreciate both these companies for understand how important monarchs are to everyone. Pam Pelletier Sebring


A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Kahn, took over the business. Eventually the groves were all divided among the Kahn children. At his peak, Marvin Kahn had grown his 400 acres to 5,500. Marvin Kahn is now the only one of his family still in the business, thanks in part to the fact he does more than just grow fruit. He manages groves, both his and others. Marvin Kahn told citrus industry colleagues in March how he considers Kahn Citrus Management LLC a successful business, not for his years of good production or successful bottom lines, but because almost all of his employees stayed long-term. Hes said people in his company cooperate as a close family, just as his family did. Kahn also thanks his parents for instilling his love of citrus, helping build the industry in central Florida and for teaching him how to take care of groves. In his life, Kahn has served as a leader in the industry, whether “ghting for growers property rights, practicing and advocating for water management or as a community booster. Not only was Kahn an early adopter of water management with overhead sprinklers, he served on a work group for the Southwest Florida Water Management District to develop the states “rst water-use caution area. It encompasses approximately 5,100 square miles, including all of DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee and Sarasota counties, and parts of Charlotte, Highlands, Hillsborough and Polk counties. Goals of the caution area were to set: € Minimum ”ows in the upper Peace River € Minimum lake levels in lakes along the Lake Wales Ridge. € A minimum aquifer level to prevent saltwater intrusion. € Policies to ensure water supply needs are met for existing and projected uses. According to SWFWMD, those goals have been achieved. To date, water district of“cials report they have met regional water supply needs despite an increase of more than 325,000 residents, reduced overall groundwater use from the Upper Floridan aquifer by more than 50 million gallons per day and have made progress toward completing a project on Lake Hancock to achieve minimum ”ows in the Upper Peace River. In his community, Kahn and others founded the Highlands County 4-H Club Foundation and established the Florida Cracker Trail Association and the Florida Cracker Trail Ride to recreate that element of the states historical and still-vibrant cattle industry. Mostly, Kahn thanks his wife of 64 years this August, Elsa, through whom and with whom he met most of the key people who helped in his career. More importantly, he told citrus colleagues in March, Elsa has been his source of constructive criticism and unconditional support, my best friend and the love of my life.ŽAGFROM PAGE 1 Over the weekend I attended one of my younger siblings graduations. This, of course, got me thinking about my own graduation and all that has happened in the four years since then. I remember graduation day in pieces. I do not remember waking up, but I do remember meeting with all my classmates before the ceremony. I do not remember walking in a line to the graduate seats, but I do remember walking home after everything was over, with my family. Some other things I remember is that it was outside, at eight oclock in the morning. As the sun beat down on a stadium full of proud family members, we all wished we had applied sunscreen. The graduation gowns were too warm, and the clothes under the gown stuck to me in an uncomfortable way. The ceremony seemed never ending, with multiple student speakers and faculty speeches. And even though there were fewer than 100 of us graduating, it took an eternity for each of us to cross the stage and enter the metaphorical real world. This is not to say I did not appreciate the ceremony, or the tradition of celebrating the graduation of high school, but there were de“nitely some things I would have changed. Even though my sibling and I graduated from the same high school, we had very different graduation ceremonies. Not only was theres at night, but it was extremely short. This could have had something to do with the impending thunderstorm that all of us in Dorsett Stadium could clearly see and hear. Rather than have the guest speakers before handing out the diplomas, it was done backwards. Also, the names were read very quickly. And as each students name was called, more and more people were leaving the stadium, in fear of the bad weather. Somehow, the storm was able to hold out until each student was handed his or her diploma, and all the student speeches were over and done with. My family and I were even able to get a few pictures in before running off the “eld into the cover of the trees at the end of the “eld. This is the “rst time I have watched any of my siblings graduate. As the oldest, I am always the “rst to reach these kinds of milestones. I was not expecting to be thinking My little baby Syd is all grown up!Ž but for some reason I did. Seeing the differences in our graduations, I cannot help but wonder just how important traditions and ceremonies are. Even though I had a more traditional, yet insufferably hot, graduation, I do not feel like my ceremony was anymore meaningful or ful“lled than the one I saw over the weekend. In fact, because this was an event for someone I love, one of the most important people I have in my life, I felt that it meant more to me. Season of graduations brings back memories ColumnistANNSLEY BOHLMAN Alberto „ the first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that officially starts June 1 „ is expected to strengthen until it reaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely on Monday night. The storm disrupted plans from Pensacola in the Panhandle to Miami Beach on Floridas southeastern edge. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading are banned due to high surf and dangerous conditions. Alberto prompted Florida, Alabama and Mississippi to launch emergency preparations Saturday. Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday. Isolated tornadoes were possible across the region on Sunday and Monday. A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less defined 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. Highlands County Emergency Management officials reminded residents and visitors to Highlands County to monitor the media and social media for any changes in local weather. Low-lying areas may experience flooding, county officials said. In case of flooding they advised residents: € To get to higher ground. € Avoid flooded areas or those with rapid water flow and drainage. € Do not attempt to cross flooded areas. It only takes six inches of water to sweep a grown adult off their feet. € Do not allow children to play in or near high water, storm drains or ditches. Hidden dangers could lie beneath the water. € Never drive through flood waters or on flooded roads. Turn around, dont drown! Flooded roads could have significant damages that can be hidden by flood water.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 LOCAL SPORTSKelseyville captures Bassmaster high school eventA common bait“sh, not a secret lure, was a key to winning for Cooper Goff and Sheldon Reese on Clear Lake at the Mossy Oak Bassmaster High School Western Open presented by DICKS Sporting Goods. The local Kelseyville Knights team tapped into a school of Clear Lake hitch to load their livewell with a limit of largemouth weighing 19 pounds, 12 ounces. Jonathon Milburn and Niko Romero of Arizona B.A.S.S. Nation High School were second with 17-11. Taj White and Derek Richards, also from Arizona, took third with 16-13. Quinn Hawkinson and Conner Urling were fourth with 16-1. Fifth place went to JC Lintner and Austin Bricker of Arroyo Grande High School with 15-4. Found only in northern Californias Clear Lake and its tributaries, the native bait“sh is important forage in the upper food chain, and particularly for largemouth bass. The postspawn bass were hungry and seeking food after the spawning cycle on the lake. The team discovered the winning area during a surface feeding frenzy. The bass had the hitch all herded up on the deep side of a shallow ledge,Ž said Reese, 17, a junior at Clear Lake High School. The winning area featured a high spot of 3 feet and then dropped to a depth of 6 feet on the bottom, which also was covered in submerged aquatic grass. The anglers believed the bass used the grass as ambush cover until the bait“sh approached from above. The action began immediately and stayed hot until the required halftime break at 9:45 a.m. By then, 17 pounds of largemouth were already in the teams livewell.

When the news broke that Trans Am was opting to bring the TA2 class exclusively to Belle Isle in 2018, Francis immediately began looking at options to make his “rst career TA2 start „ the allure of Belle Isle was too strong to pass up. Ive always loved street courses; and amongst them all, Detroit is de“nitely my favorite,Ž said Francis.

Surely he couldnt lose a second Grand Prix of Monaco win in three years? Fortunately, lady luck was with the Australian this time, allowing him to “nally clinch the trophy he so dearly craved. After an impeccable performance in which he brilliantly overcame being restricted to just six of his eight gears, Ricciardo crossed the line 7.3 seconds clear of Ferraris Sebastian Vettel, with Mercedes Lewis Hamilton completing the podium to retain his championship lead. Ricciardos drive was an epic that will live long in the memory, and one that could hardly have been imagined as he led cleanly away from pole, comfortably holding off an attack from Vettel into Ste Devote. The entire “eld got through that “rst turn cleanly, “ltering up the hill to Casino Square. Ricciardo was able to control the pace at the front, with the hypersoft tires holding on well, but Mercedes rolled the dice and opted to bring Hamilton in early, “tting the reigning world champion with the purple-walled ultrasoft tires. Vettel was the next to pit, with Ricciardo reacting the following lap and rejoining in the lead, just ahead of Vettel with Hamilton in second. With most expecting to do a one-stopper, Ricciardo looked to have the race in the bag. But it wouldnt be as simple as that. Vettel was suddenly on Ricciardos tail. The Australian had lost power. His team investigated the problem and while they identi“ed what it was, they told Ricciardo it wouldnt get any better.

Monday, May 28, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A9 break, the action picked right back up, with the team slowly culling their weight up to nearly 20 pounds. The team used a variety of lures capable of covering the water column from top to bottom. Cooper and Reese alternated lures to prevent the bass from growing accustomed to seeing the same bait. A 1/2-ounce G Money bladed jig did the trick early. The team switched to a Heddon Zara Spook and topwater frog later that morning. A Texas-rigged, weightless Yamamoto Senko was added to the lure arsenal later in the day. We just started hammering them early on the bladed jig,Ž said Goff, 16, a sophomore at Kelseyville High School. It didnt slow down until we had to stop for the halftime break.Ž Reese, whose father Jimmy was boat captain, said the anglers pinpointed the deep side of the ledge as most productive. The bass were coming up from the deep end to get after the hitch on the shallow side,Ž he explained. The teams competed under clearing skies and cool temperatures during a postspawn scenario at Clear Lake. The largemouth were beginning to migrate from shallow water spawning areas to deeper water for the summer. Firstand second-place teams, Kelseyville High School and Arizona B.A.S.S. Nation High School, received $500 and $200, respectively, along with rods and reels from Abu Garcia. A second team from the Arizona B.A.S.S. Nation High School and Yuba Sutter Fishing Club received $200 and $100, respectively, for third and fourth place. Romero and Milburn also won the Abu Garcia Big Bass award with a largemouth weighing 6-6. Teams from Arizona, California and even Alabama competed with the same goal in mind. That was qualifying for the 2018 Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster High School Series Championship presented by DICKS Sporting Goods. The championship will be held on Kentucky Lake, at Paris, Tennessee, Aug. 2-4. Advancing to the championship are Reese and Goff of the Kelseyville Knights and Romero and Milburn of Arizona B.A.S.S.

However, it allowed the rest of the pack to close up, with Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas narrowing the gap „ just eight seconds separated them in the races “nal stages. Further back, the Grand Prix was coming alive, courtesy of a recovering Max Verstappen and Nico Hulkenbergs Renault, both who were able to run very deep into the race after starting on the more durable ultrasoft tires. That meant they could “t the hypersofts for the “nal stint. On Verstappens Red Bull, which started last after he failed to set a time in qualifying, the pink-walled tires were delivering lap times that were at times four seconds quicker than anyone else. Such was his pace, he smashed the lap record. That pace hauled him into the points, the Dutchman sliding past Carlos Sainz around the outside on the approach to the chicane to snatch ninth. But that was as good as it got. Raikkonen crossed the line fourth, ahead of Bottas with Esteban Ocon converting a strong qualifying into a best-ofthe-rest sixth place for Force India. Pierre Gasly threw his hat into the ring for Driver of the Day „ an honor that ultimately went to Ricciardo „ with a stunning drive in the Toro Rosso. The Frenchman made the hypersofts last, at a good pace, for nearly half the race, allowing him to move up to seventh. He then drove brilliantly on the supersofts to defend from Hulkenberg to maintain that position. Sainz completed the top 10. There was drama late on as Charles Leclerc clattered into the back of Brendon Hartley exiting the tunnel on the run to the chicane. The Sauber driver, who reported no brakes, skated into the escape road and retired. Hartley recovered to the pits, but the signi“cant damage to his rear wing meant he could not rejoin. After a brief Virtual Safety Car period, Vettel began drifting back from Ricciardo to “nally release the pressure on the Australian, with Hamilton well down the road in third. Fernando Alonso failed to see the checkered ”ag for the “rst time this season when he pulled up at Ste Devote with smoke emanating from the rear of his car on Lap 53 of the 78. It was a miserable day for Williams, too. Sergey Sirotkin ran 12th early on but picked up a 10-second stop-go penalty for a wheel infringement on the grid, while Lance Stroll suffered two punctures, one of which was caused when he collided with Marcus Ericsson on the opening lap. They were the last classi“ed “nishers, more than a lap down. But the day belonged to Ricciardo and Red Bull, who banished the memories of 2016, when a pit stop error cost the Australian victory here. He still hasnt had an easy win „ each of his now seven F1 triumphs have been challenging „ but he wont care. The Monaco victory is “nally his. Two years in the making this, so I “nally feel like the redemption has arrived,Ž Ricciardo said. We had problemsƒ we had a lot to deal with during the race. I think it was before halfway, I felt a loss of power and I thought the race was done, and we got home just using six gears. Thanks to the team, we got it back so Im stoked.Ž VICTORYFROM PAGE 8 FORMULA ONE PHOTODaniel Ricciardo celebrates after winning Sundays race.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, May 28, 2018 Aloe vera made a couple of headlines recently. The “rst was when the actress Drew Barrymore dabbed some on a facial sore and it instantly took out the redness. The second was when Prop 65 regulations in California called out a known carcinogen in aloe vera called aloin.Ž Dont worry, aloe will never get banned. Not to be morbid from the get-go, but extracted compounds from this spiky succulent were used in the middle east during ancient times to clean dead bodies and prepare them for burial. Plants of aloe very give us two different substances, one is called gelŽ and the other is called latex. Both have medicinal value. The gel is the clear part that comes from the center of the leaf. You know it well ƒ it looks like jelly and its what you put on the skin for cuts and minor burns. The aloe latex is visible just beneath the plants outer skin, and its yellow in color. This has a laxative effect on the body. Aloe is very useful for psoriasis, food sensitivities, diabetes, gastritis and gingivitis. If these topics interest you, I have a way longer version of this article which Ill email to you next week if you sign up to receive my free health newsletter at suzycohen. Right now, here are 10 things you can use your aloe plant for: 1. Moisturize yourself Mix some into your favorite lotion and put on your face or arms. 2. Heal bug bites Dab aloe gel directly onto painful or itchy but bites, or combine the aloe in the palm of your hand with some hydrocortisone cream. 3. Cool off burns Squeeze a dab of aloe vera into traditional burn ointment and use on super“cial burns. 4. Soothe eczema itch You can buy any salt or sugar scrub that feels good to you and just mix in aloe vera gel. 5. Ease dandruff Find a selenium sul“de-based shampoo and add some aloe vera gel to the shampoo then massage to your scalp. 6. Fix gingivitis Squeeze some aloe vera gel onto your toothbrush and brush like normal. 7. Shave your legs Instead of using expensive, perfumed shaving cream on your legs, use aloe vera gel. 8. Get moving There are commercially prepared products used as dietary supplements which might help constipation. Some people like this, others react poorly. 9. Succulent Facial Do you want softer skin and more radiance without spending a fortune on fancy creams? Apply the gel to your cheeks and forehead, and rest for 15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry. 10. Soothe a sunburn Snap off a stalk from your aloe plant and apply the clear gel onto the sunburned area for a natural cooling balm. It helps with redness and in”ammation. These sound great and they are for most people. Occasionally with aloe, you hear of unexpected problems such as diarrhea, skin or eye irritation and possibly dehydration from the laxative effect.

The Senate cleared the bill on a 92-5 vote Wednesday, also averting a disastrous shutdown of its Choice private-sector program. The program is slated to run out of money as early as next week, causing disruptions in care. The sweeping measure would allow veterans to see private doctors when they do not receive the treatment they expected, with the approval of a Department of Veterans Affairs health provider. Veterans could access private care when they have endured lengthy wait times or VA medical centers do not offer the services they need. The bills approval comes despite concerns from some Democrats that the effort would prove costly and be used too broadly by veterans in search of top-notch care even when the VA is able to provide treatment deemed suf“cient for their needs.

But bolstering ones immune system is no small task, as even medical researchers admit there is still much to learn about the links between lifestyle and immune function. The Harvard Medical School notes that a strongly functioning immune system requires balance and harmony. So it stands to reason that a highly unhealthy lifestyle will compromise the immune system, but its also worth noting that pushing the body too hard in the other direction also can adversely affect immune function. Researchers continue to study the potential links between immune response and variables such as diet, exercise, age, and psychological stress. Though studies are ongoing, the Harvard Medical School notes that the immune system is bolstered by various strategies associated with healthy living. €Dont smoke. Smoking is linked to a host of diseases and ailments, so its no surprise that it also compromises the immune system. The National Cancer Institute notes that cigarette smoke contains high levels of tar and other chemicals, which compromise the immune systems ability to effectively combat infections. The effects of smoking on the immune system are both immediate and longterm. Smokers immune systems may not be able to fend off common infections like the common cold as effectively as the immune systems of nonsmokers. And over time, as smokers keep smoking, their immune systems will continue to weaken, which the NCI says makes them more vulnerable to autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. €Eat a healthy diet. There is no magical food or foods that can strengthen the immune system to a point where infection is impossible. However, the Cleveland Clinic notes that a balanced, healthy diet that includes a mix of vitamins and minerals plays a role in strengthening the immune system. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain a bevy of vitamins and antioxidants that help the immune system “ght off potential infections.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 Which is correct „ Laurel or Yanny?Over the last week there has been much discussion and laughter over a recording that hit the internet. The recording in question was Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?Ž It goes without question that we all hear sounds differently. There are many variables as to how each of us personally processes sound. If you have not heard it, Google Yanny or Laurel.Ž You can also “nd it on YouTube. Its fun and entertaining. There is much discussion as to whether the device you are listening to actually has something to do with what you hear. There are discussions that you subconsciously hearŽ what you are familiar with. So ... maybe you know a couple of people with the name of Laurel and so you hear Laurel. There are experiments that show that slowing down the speed in which the recording is played may also change whether you hear YannyŽ or Laurel.Ž Have you listened to it yet? There are dozens of places to “nd it ... go listen. Well, being in the business of hearing, we had to listen. So, last week during our morning huddle, myself, Bonnie, Barbara and Kendra all listened to it through the speaker on an iPhone 6. Results: I heard Laurel.Ž And I do know several Laurels.Ž The other three heard Yanny.Ž At that point, they all cracked up and said I was wrong. I was intrigued. Barbara has a hearing loss and it is corrected with the use of hearing aids that she wears faithfully. Hmmm, she heard Yanny.Ž Very interesting. We kept playing it, over and over. Nope. I hear Laurel.Ž Finally, I put Barbaras hearing aids in and then I hear Yanny.Ž I slip them out and I hear Laurel.Ž The girls immediately are telling me I have a hearing loss. Ive got to admit, I was like, wow ... maybe. This is when I actually started looking up information on the recording. I discovered the interesting information that I previously mentioned. I also discovered speculations that younger ears will be more likely to hear Yanny.Ž Great! Now I have old ears and maybe a hearing loss. This is brutal! Who knew! According to Dr. Kevin Franck, director of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, it has to do with our brain. What goes into the brain and how it is processed is different for everyone. Our brain forces us to make a decision. You only have once choice If you turn the bass up or enjoy bass sounds, you are more likely to hear a male voice saying Yanny.Ž If you push the high frequencies, you will probably hear Laurel.Ž Back to the fact that I put Barbaras aids in my ear, which are amplifying primarily mid and high frequencies, and then I could hear Yanny.Ž Maybe a slight hearing loss. Maybe not. The original recording was done in 2007 by a Broadway actor who was in the original production of CATS.Ž This persons friend is Mark Tinkler, who is founder of, and they hired group opera singers to record 200,000 words that would be de“ned on the companys website. The same singer that recorded LaurelŽ also recorded the word audacityŽ (this singer is a friend of Mark Tinkler and does not want the publicity). Recently, an 18-year-old student discovered the recording during a class project. de“nes YannyŽ as a word that can interrupt the internet for at least 24 hours. When you drop a YannyŽ you are starting a public debate or forum.Ž They got that right. For the record, the correct recording of the word is ... Laurel. But, I still think I will have a hearing test this week. Roseann B. Kiefer, B.A., BC-HIS, is owner of Lampe and Kiefer Hearing Aid Center. Sebring, Fla. This information is not intended to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure your condition. Always talk to your doctor before following any medical advice or starting a diet or exercise program. Roseann KieferHEARING MATTERS Most people I talk to about high blood pressure say, I know, I know. I need to cut back on salt.Ž Thats correct. Few, however, are aware that potassium also plays a key role in the fight against high blood pressure. Who cares? We should, says the American Heart Association (AHA). High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke „ sometimes called a heart attack in the brain „ that can lead to serious disabilities or death. We could prevent 80 percent of strokes, says the AHA, primarily by keeping our blood pressure in check. A normal blood pressure (now defined as less than 120/80) can also help ward off heart attacks, aneurysms and dementia as well as certain kidney and eye diseases. Potassium works to lower blood pressure in several ways, according to a fact sheet on this nutrient from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It helps keep our blood vessels flexible and open so the pressure of blood pumping through is reduced. Potassium also helps our bodies eliminate excess sodium.

Now that we have your attention, let us dive into learning more on the bene“ts of receiving a hot stone massage. Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can do deeper work. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones expand blood vessels, which encourages blood ”ow through the body. They have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain and promote deep relaxation. Utilizing hot stones during a massage can provide relief from pain associated with “bromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other chronic conditions. It alleviates muscle spasms, reduces chronic stress and tension, increases ”exibility in the joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement, promotes sleep, and lastly, relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles. So many people still think of massage or even hot stone massage as a luxury or as something we do when we want to treat ourselves, but what many people arent aware of is what a health bene“t it is and how its not necessarily a luxury anymore, though it can be both, its a necessity. Lets take time this week to do something our future self will thank us for. Heal By Touch Massage & Float Therapy is located at 2531 U.S. 27 S., Sebring.The use of hot stones to alleviate painASHLEY TINKLERCOLUMNIST We all love sunshine that enables us to enjoy many outdoor activities. It is necessary for us to have sun exposure to obtain Vitamin D. The amount of sunshine you are exposed to can even affect your mood. Studies have shown that in the Northwest, where it rains much of the time, people suffer from depression and vitamin D de“ciency more than others who live in areas with greater sunshine exposure. While there are health bene“ts to sunshine exposure there can also be health risks. Prolonged exposure to UVR can and does damage your skin. The American Cancer Society recommends a skin screening every three years for people aged 20 to 40 and annually for those over 40. Researchers estimate that one in “ve Americans will develop skin cancer at least once in their lifetime. Ninety percent of skin cancers are caused by the sun. Acute sunburns place the patient at higher risk for skin cancer. Second degree burns before age 18 can double your risk for skin cancer. While the basal cell is most common skin cancer, metastatic melanoma is the most deadly. So UVR, which damages the DNA in your skin cells, comes from several sources. There is the sun, but there is also tanning beds. People think that because their skin is nice and brown they look better and are healthier. This is delusional. The reason your skin turns brown from sun or tanning beds is that it is damaged. So while you might think you look better and youre sporting a tan, you have skin damage. UVR can penetrate some clothing so you need to wear a good sunscreen. I personally recommend something with an SPF of 30 or greater. I was raised in southern California in the desert. I had multiple sunburns. I used to lay out and tan by the pool, beach and go to the tanning booth to make myself the brown color that I thought made me look good. In the last 15 years, I have had multiple surgeries on my face to remove basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. I have to have my screening every three months due to the number of cancers I have had. The moral of this story is limit your sun exposure, wear a sunscreen, stay out of tanning booths, and avoid laying out in the sun. If you have any areas of your skin that are new, discolored, bleeding or changing see your primary provider for evaluation.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 Will your healthcare provider be your doctor?Primary care doctors „ pediatricians, family practice and internists „ are in short supply. There are several reasons for the shortage. One is decreasing reimbursement and rising costs for their own health insurance, of“ce rent, utilities and employee salaries. There is also increased regulation, such as the unfunded mandate for electronic medical records. Another is the higher educational debt that young doctors are graduating with. Many new doctors give this as a reason for picking specialties that pay more. Newly graduating doctors are, on average, a decade later than other professions and have less time to pay off the debt and begin families. This is not a new problem. In 1965, when Medicare and Medicaid expanded and more children and elderly sought medical services, the shortage began. This gave rise to physician extendersŽ to try to “ll the gap. There have been many local attempts to “ll in areas of need in rural and other underserved areas such as the Frontier Nurses (1925), the training of army corpsman to take care of prisoners (1930) and the Alaska health aides (1940). In 1965, Loretta Ford, a nurse, and Henry Silver, a physician, started a formal program for nurse practitioners at the University of Colorado. The original focus was health promotion, disease prevention and the health of children and families. In 1997, after intensive lobbying, they gained the right to be paid independently by Medicare, and commercial insurers soon followed. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have a four-year degree in nursing, and at least a masters degree in nursing. Eighty-eight percent are in primary care, but only 18 percent are in rural settings. They can and often do advertise as specialistsŽ in dermatology. rheumatology and neurology without speci“c training requirements. A Physician Assistant, PA, program was started by Dr Eugene Stead at Duke University in 1965. He trained ex-Navy corpsmen using his experiences running Grady Memorial in Atlanta with only medical students because there were no residents during World War II. The “rst surgeons assistant program followed in 1967 at the University of Alabama. Today, PAs work with a supervising physician who may be present only by phone. The states set the standards. They must have at least two years of college. The average training program is 27 months. There are now 148 accredited programs and more than 92,000 PAs in practice. Pediatricians, internists and family practitioners all complete four years of college, four years of medical school and at least three years of residency. (Family practice was standardized in 1966.) Some may do another year or two in subspecialties such as gerontology or adolescent medicine. Surgical specialties generally are “ve years long. There have been numerous scienti“c articles comparing the care received from a physician extender versus the physician and even more editorial discussion about the equivalence of physician versus NP and PA care. Now, PAs and NPs want to do without the supervision of a physician. In Great Britain there are pilot programs allowing the physician extenders to do simple surgeries. Even though they have may have less training than the physician they are replacing, many insurance companies pay the same for an NP, a PA or an MD. The best situation for the patient is when the doctors work as a team, with the PA/NP doing education, well care screening, history taking and other similar activities, and physicians dealing with the more dif“cult tasks their education has trained them for.

But the Cleveland Clinic notes that manufacturers typically free frozen fruits and vegetables at peak ripeness. That means frozen fruits and vegetables provide similar nutrition to fresh fruits and vegetables during those times of year when foods are not in-season. €Exercise regularly. Like a healthy diet, routine exercise provides a host of bene“ts, and one such bene“t is its impact on the immune systems. The U.S. National Library of Medicine notes that the precise relationship between exercise and immune system function remains a mystery. Some researchers suspect that physical activity may ”ush bacteria out of the lungs and airways, reducing ones risk of getting a cold, ”u or other illness. Another theory suggests that exercises causes changes in white blood cells, which the immune system uses to “ght disease. These exercise-related changes may make it possible for the cells to detect illnesses earlier than they would if the body was not exercised regularly. While its important to note that these are just theories, the Harvard Medical School suggests that its reasonable to consider moderate regular exercise an important component of a healthy, immune-boosting lifestyle. €Dont buy the hype. Men and women interested in boosting their immune systems will no doubt “nd many products claiming to do just that. The Harvard Medical School urges consumers to be skeptical of such products, many of which make dubious claims that are not rooted in recognized scienti“c research.IMMUNEFROM PAGE 1 high-performing and integrated health care system for the 21st century and provide veterans with more choice in their health care options, whether from VA doctors or from the community.Ž The VA secretary will have wide leeway in implementing the legislation, which leaves it up to VA to determine what is qualityŽ care. Trump said last week he will nominate acting VA secretary Robert Wilkie to permanently lead the governments second-largest department serving 9 million veterans. Democrats say they intend to question Wilkie on whether he plans to privatizeŽ or degrade the VA health system, an issue that former VA Secretary David Shulkin says led to his “ring in March. Sen. Johnny Isakson, the Republican chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, lauded the bill as a big step toward providing veterans with more choice and fewer barriers to care.Ž Sen. Jon Tester, the top Democrat on the veterans panel, said the plan will also boost VA health care by paying off higher amounts of student loan debt for doctors who agree to work in highneed VA positions, requiring improvement plans in communities with few hospitals and creating a pilot program that would send medical personnel to help “ll shortages. The best defense against any effort to privatize the VA or send veterans in a wholesale fashion to the private sector is to make sure the VA is living up to its promise,Ž he said. Trump has made clear he will sign the bill if it reaches his desk before Memorial Day. The House passed it on a 347-70 vote last week. The Senate supported the bill that would create a presidentially appointed commission to review the closure of underperforming VA facilities. House Democrats had sought restrictions on the commission but were rebuffed by House Republicans and the White House. It would also expand a VA caregivers program to cover families of veterans of all eras, not just the families of veterans who were seriously injured in the line of duty since Sept. 11, 2001. The $51 billion bill provides for a newly combined community careŽ program that includes Choice and other VA programs of outside care. It could face escalating costs due to growing demand from veterans seeking the convenience of seeing private physicians. Some House Democrats warn the VA wont be able to handle a growing price tag, putting the VA at risk of unexpected budget shortfalls next year. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a former chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, criticized the bill as moving the VA too far in the direction of privatization.Ž He noted that it would not provide any money to “ll more than 30,000 positions at the VA that the Trump administration has left vacant. My fear is that this bill will open the door to the draining, year after year, of much needed resources from the VA,Ž he said. The measure builds on legislation passed in 2014 in response to a wait-time scandal at the Phoenix VA medical center, where some veterans died while waiting months for appointments. It aims to steer more patients to the private sector to relieve pressure at VA hospitals, thus improving veterans care at VA facilities and with private providers alike. Patients could also access private walk-in clinics, such as MinuteClinics, to treat minor illnesses or injury if they used VA health care in the last two years. The legislation would loosen Choices restrictions that limit outside care only when a veteran must wait 30 days for an appointment or drive more than 40 miles to a VA facility. Currently, more than 30 percent of VA appointments are in the private sector. A broad array of veterans groups supported the bill. The American Legion, the nations largest veterans group, says the plan will strengthen veterans health care for future generations while ensuring that veterans caregivers of all generations get the support they deserve.Ž The conservative Concerned Veterans for America, a long-time advocate of expanding private care for veterans, called the measure a very big deal.Ž Still, executive director Dan Caldwell stresses the top priority for the VA secretary is ensuring it will be implemented properly.ŽBILLFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOSen.

The Food and Drug Administration said that various gels and creams containing the drug benzocaine (BEN-zoh-keyn) can cause rare but deadly side effects in children, especially those 2 years and younger. The agency has been warning about the products for a decade but said reports of illnesses and deaths have continued. Now, it wants teething products off the market, noting there is little evidence they actually work. We urge parents, caregivers and retailers who sell them to heed our warnings and not use over-the-counter products containing benzocaine for teething pain,Ž said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, in a statement. The FDA said it will take legal action against companies that dont voluntarily remove their products for young children. Benzocaine is also used in popular overthe-counter products for toothaches and cold sores in adults, including Orajel and Anbesol and dozens of generic drugstore brands. Products for adults can remain on the market but the FDA wants companies to add new warnings. Manufacturers have 30 days to respond to the governments request. Benzocaine can cause a rare blood condition linked to potentially deadly breathing problems. The pain-relieving ingredient can interfere with an oxygen-carrying protein in the blood. Symptoms include shortness of breath, headache and rapid heart rate. Teething products with benzocaine include Baby Orajel. The packaging states: Instant relief for teething pain.Ž It is made by the New Jersey-based Church and Dwight Co. Inc.; a company representative could not be immediately reached for comment Wednesday morning. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend teething creams because they usually wash out of the babys mouth within minutes. Instead, the group recommends giving babies teething rings or simply massaging their gums to relieve pain. The FDA issued warnings about the teething products in 2006, 2011 and 2014, but did not call for their removal from the market. Of“cials reviewed 119 cases of the blood disorder linked to benzocaine between 2009 and 2017, including four deaths, according to the FDA.By MATTHEW PERRONEAP HEALTH WRITER AP PHOTOOrajel is displayed for sale in a pharmacy in New York Wednesday, May 23.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, May 28, 2018 What do we mean when we say the coreŽ of the body? Why and how do we make it stronger? The coreŽ is referred to in yoga as the abdominal muscles, the side waist (obligues), gluteus maximus (buttocks), back (from top of the next through the lower back) and thighs. Sports of any kind requires twists, leg raises and extensions that use all of these core muscles. Cleaning house, bending the knees to squat down and pick up a dust pan, sweeping, climbing stairs or in most daily tasks, we use the core muscles. The glutesŽ comprise three muscles in the buttocks and is the largest muscle in the body. The shape of the glutes or buttŽ is part heredity and muscle building. These muscles help to lift and rotate legs/hips. They are vital for ”exibility in the upper and lower body and stabilizing balance. The core muscles work in concert with each other. The importance of ”exibility and strength in the core is the basis of a yoga practice so students will have more mobility in executing the various postures. Strengthening the core helps to support body weight when arms are lifted and extended to carry heavy items, lifting the head and neck to lie down or rotating the hips in swimming, swinging a golf club, dancing or getting up from a fall to the ”oor. Strengthening the core provides more physical independence in lifting, stretching to reach something in a high place and maintaining balance. When you have a strong core, it also builds emotional/mental con“dence that you can do it yourself.ŽTo check your core strength and mobility lets give it a whirl. LETS PRACTICE: 1.Place a yoga mat on the ”oor and sit on it comfortably with legs stretched out in front arms by the hips with hands on the ”oor. Slowly, with control, lift the arms outstretched over your thighs and gradually roll back into a lying position keeping the heels and feet on the mat. Did you do it without touching the ”oor with your hands to gain support or balance? Good for you! 2. Lying on your back with legs stretched out in front of you, keep one leg on the ”oor, tighten the buttocks/abdominals and raise the other leg straight with toe pointed; hold it up for 30 seconds. Repeat with the other leg. 3.With both legs outstretched on the ”oor, raise both legs with feet separated. You can place a pillow between the feet to keep them apart; bring the legs straight up from the hips with heels to the sky. Hold the legs up for 30 seconds, then with control slowly lower them to about 6 inches above the ”oor with toes pointed and hold them there for another 30 seconds before lowering them. Do this 10 times. This is a beginning. Do whatever you can to start the practice, then work on increasing the number of leg lifts and hold times as you repeat it. This practice will give you an awareness of your core strength at the present time. Your core will love you for awakening its potential and allowing you to be aware of your strength and ”exibility so you can make those muscles stronger. A stronger core provides the opportunity to enjoy all the activities we like to do as well as keeping us “t to try new endeavors. Have fun!Strengthening the coreYOGA FOR LIFENANCY DALE COURTESY PHOTOYoga teacher Nancy Dale shows the extended right angleŽ pose. eat a diet that is high in potassium and low in sodium. What does that diet look like? A good example is the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension). This eating pattern „ rich in potassium from fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy foods „ has been shown to significantly lower blood pressure. Fortunately, bananas are not the only food that contain potassium. It is found in a variety of plant as well as animal-based foods. Several types of fruit, vegetables and legumes (beans and peas) as well as meat, milk, poultry, fish and nuts are good sources of this nutrient. One-half cup of dried apricots, for example, contains more than double the amount of potassium in a medium banana. And whole grain foods such as brown rice and whole wheat flour contain more potassium than their refined counterparts, white rice and white flour. It is interesting, too, that a potassium-rich diet does even more than just reduce our risk for having a stroke. Potassium also plays a key role in strengthening bones and decreasing our risk for certain types of kidney stones. Id say thats worthy of attention. A word of caution: High intakes of potassium-rich foods pose no problem for healthy people because our kidneys get rid of any excess, says the NIH. People with kidney disease, however, may need to limit their intake of high potassium foods. And if you take certain medications such as ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics, talk to your doctor. He or she may want you to see a registered dietitian about your potassium intake.

HONOLULU (AP) „ Lava from the Kilauea volcano reached a geothermal power plant on the Big Island on Sunday, approaching wells that have been capped to protect against the release of toxic gas should they mix with lava. The lava breached the property overnight and was within 200 yards of the nearest well, said David Mace, a spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Asked about safety hazards, he replied: I think its safe to say authorities have been concerned about the ”ow of lava onto the plant property since the eruption started.Ž A plant spokesman, Mike Kaleikini, told the news agency Hawaii News Now that the lava was as close as 130 feet from wells. He said there was no indication of the release of the poisonous gas hydrogen sul“de, the greatest fear should lava Beaches in Florida were largely empty ahead of Memorial Day as the “rst named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Subtropical Storm Alberto, approached the northern Gulf Coast carrying brisk winds and heavy rain. The storm disrupted long holiday weekend plans from Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle to Miami Beach on Floridas southeastern edge. Lifeguards posted red ”ags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and dangerous conditions. It also triggered mandatory evacuations of some small, sparsely populated Gulf Coast barrier islands in one Florida county. The Florida Division of Emergency Management said in a statement Sunday that a mandatory evacuation has been issued in Franklin County for all barrier islands there and those in the county living directly on the coast in mobile homes or in recreation vehicle parks. Alberto got an early jump on the 2018 hurricane season, which doesnt of“cially start until June 1. The storm prompted Florida, Alabama and Mississippi to launch emergency preparations over the weekend amid expectations Alberto would reach land sometime Monday. Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday.

His “rst sergeant rousted him from his pup tent around 2 a.m. when word came the Japanese were attacking and had maybe even gotten behind the American front line, on a desolate, unforgiving slab of an occupied island in the North Paci“c. He was shouting, Get up! Get out!Ž Dover said. Dover and most of the American soldiers rushed to an embankment on what became known as Engineer Hill, during the last gasp of the Japanese at the Battle of Attu, fought 75 years ago this month on Attu Island in Alaskas Aleutian chain. I had two friends that were too slow to get out,Ž the 95-year-old Alabama farmer recalled. They both got bayonetted in their pup tents.Ž Joseph Sasser, then a skinny 20-yearold from Cartharge, Mississippi, also found himself perched against the berm on Engineer Hill when a captain with a ri”e took up a position about 10 feet away. I noticed about after 30 minutes or so, he was awfully quiet,Ž Sasser said. We checked to see if he had a pulse and if he was alive, and he was not. We didnt even know he had been shot,Ž said Sasser, also 95.

The death happened in Iboko, a rural area in northwestern Equateur province, the health ministry said in a statement. There are also four new suspected cases in the province, the statement reported. Congo now has 35 con“rmed Ebola cases. Health workers have identi“ed people who have been in contact with the patients in the con“rmed Ebola cases in three areas in Equateur province, Iboko, rural Bikoro and Mbandaka, the provincial capital of 1.2 million that is a transport hub on the Congo River. Congolese Health Minister Oly Ilunga Kalenga ”ew by helicopter to Bikoro and Iboko on Saturday to see the deployment of health workers who will be tracing people who have been in contact with Ebola cases and inoculating them with a new experimental vaccine. The vaccination campaign in the two rural areas is set to begin Monday. Representatives of the World Health Organization and UNICEF accompanied the health minister. The vaccination campaign is already underway in Mbandaka, where four Ebola cases have been con“rmed. About 100 health workers have been vaccinated there as front-line workers face high risk from the virus, which is spread via contact with the bodily ”uids of those infected, including the dead. The next few weeks are crucial in determining whether the outbreak announced in May can be brought under control, according to the World Health Organization. Complicating factors include its spread to a major city, that health workers are among those infected and the existence of three or four separate epicenters,Ž making “nding and monitoring the contacts of infected people more dif“cult. WHO is using a ring vaccinationŽ approach, targeting the contacts of people infected or suspected of infection and then the contacts of those people. More than 600 contacts have been identi“ed. WHO also is accelerating efforts with nine neighboring countries to try to prevent the Ebola outbreak from spreading there, saying the regional risk is high. It has warned against international travel and trade restrictions. I am personally committed to ensuring that we do everything we can to stop this outbreak as soon as possible,Ž WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a meeting in Geneva on Saturday. This is Congos ninth Ebola outbreak since 1976, when the hemorrhagic fever was “rst identi“ed. There is no speci“c treatment for Ebola. Symptoms include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain and at times internal and external bleeding. The virus can be fatal in up to 90 percent of cases, depending on the strain.New Ebola death confirmed in Congo, brings total to 12By SALEH MWANAMILONGOASSOCIATED PRESS MARK NAFTALIN/UNICEF VIA APIn this photo taken Friday UNICEF staer Jean Claude Nzengu, center, talks with members of an Ebola vaccination team as they prepare to administer the vaccine in an Ebola-aected community in the north-western city of Mbandaka, in Congo.

Landslide kills 23 in Ethiopia Mexican authorities arrest wife of drug kingpin Official: Syrian militants dug up graves to find Israelis Frances Macron to host Libya summit pushing for electionsADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) „ Ethiopias state-af“liated broadcaster reports that a landslide triggered by heavy rains has killed 23 people in the countrys Oromia region. Fana Broadcasting Corporation reported that the landslide happened Saturday evening after hours of heavy rains in the area. The report said 16 of the fatalities were women. It said six others were injured and taken to health centers after sustaining heavy bodily injuries. Ethiopia is receiving heavy seasonal rains which sometimes cause severe landslides in some parts of the country. Close to 50 people died in a similar landslide in May 2016 after heavy rains caused ”ooding and landslides. MEXICO CITY (AP) „ Mexican authorities have arrested the wife of the leader of Jalisco New DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) „ Insurgents excavated graves in a cemetery in a refugee camp in the Syrian capital Damascus in search of the remains of three Israeli soldiers who have been missing since Israels invasion of Lebanon 36 years ago, a Syria-based Palestinian of“cial said. Anwar Raja of the Popular Front for the Liberation of PalestineGeneral Command said the bodies of the three Israeli soldiers who have been missing since a 1982 battle in Lebanon were transferred to Syria after the incident. Israel says that on June 11, 1982, “ve of its soldiers went missing in a battle near the Lebanese village of Sultan Yacoub close to the Syrian border. Several years later, two of PARIS (AP) „ France is set to host a U.N.sponsored conference on Libya aimed at securing elections in the North African country and commitments to a joint political roadmap from its warring factions. French President Emmanuel Macrons of“ce said the conference at the Elysee Palace on Tuesday will bring together key Libyan players and representatives of two dozen countries and international organizations. Macrons of“ce says Libyas rival leaders are expected to adopt a statement calling for presidential and parliamentary elections, if possibleŽ by the end of the year. The agreement would also provide for a plan to unify the countrys rival security forces and to clarify the roles of competing Libyan institutions. Libya has experienced political instability since the overthrow of Moammar Gadda“ in 2011. Macron hosted a meeting of the rival leaders at a chateau in July 2017. | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDthe missing soldiers were returned alive to Israel in prisoner exchanges with Syria and the PFLP-GC. The fate of the remaining three is still unknown. Last week, Syrian troops regained control of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk from members of the Islamic State group after a monthlong battle. Before IS took the camp, several insurgent groups had a presence there including al-Qaida-linked gunmen. Raja said the insurgents aim was to “nd the remains of the soldiers and transfer them to Israel. The refugee camp is home to the old Martyrs Cemetery where Palestinian “ghters and commanders are buried. He said all tombs in the cemetery were excavated. Raja added that Syrian security forces, while examining the belongings of gunmen being transported to northern Syria earlier this month, arrested a woman and con“scated two bags of soil she was carrying, apparently from the cemetery, and sent them to authorities for DNA analysis. This demonstrates that (the insurgents) are keen to determine whether the Israeli soldiers were buried in this cemetery,Ž he said, denying reports that the bodies were ever buried in it. The department in charge of Israelis missing in action, or MIA, in the Israeli prime ministers of“ce refused to comment.

The Sun /Monday, May 28, 2018 Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSPresident Donald Trump said Sunday a U.S. team was in North Korea to plan a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jon Un, raising expectations that the on-off-on meeting would indeed take place. The State Department said earlier that a team was in Panmunjom, which straddles the border inside the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, separating the North and South Korea. One can cross the border simply by stepping across a painted line, but moving beyond several footsteps into the North at Panmunjom would be rare for U.S. of“cials. Trump withdrew from a planned June 12 Singapore summit with Kim last Thursday, but quickly announced that it could get back on track. His tweet Sunday afternoon, which offered praise for the longtime U.S. adversary, was the latest signal that his concerns about the Norths stance toward the summit had been allayed. Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself,Ž he tweeted. I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and “nancial Nation one day. Kim Jong Un agrees with me on this. It will happen!Ž South Koreas president, Moon Jae-in, gave details about his surprise meeting Saturday with Kim in the Panmunjom truce village, saying Kim had committed to sitting down with Trump and to a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.Ž U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tapped veteran American diplomat Sung Kim to handle pre-summit negotiations. On a separate but complementary track was the CIA team Pompeo set up last year when he headed the spy agency. And on a third track was a White House logistical group sent to Singapore on Sunday to prepare in case the summit takes place. It was led by Joe Hagin, White House deputy chief of staff for operations. Kim, the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines, also served as ambassador to South Korea and was part of the U.S. negotiating team that last held substantive denuclearization talks with North Korea during the George W. Bush administration in 2005. The Korean leaders second summit in a month saw bear hugs and broad smiles. But their quickly arranged meeting Saturday appeared to highlight a sense of urgency on both sides of the worlds most heavily armed border. The talks, which Moon said Kim Jong Un requested, capped a whirlwind 24 hours of diplomatic back and forth. They allowed Moon to push for a U.S.North Korean summit that he sees as the best way to ease animosity that had some fearing a war last year. Kim may see a meeting with Trump as necessary to easing pressure from crushing sanctions and to winning security assurances in a region surrounded by enemies. Moon told reporters that Kim again made clear his commitment to a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.Ž Moon added that Kim said hes willing to cooperate to end confrontation and work toward peace for the sake of the successful summit with Trump. Moon said he told Kim that Trump has a “rm resolveŽ to end hostile relations with North Korea and initiate economic cooperation if Kim implements complete denuclearization.Ž What Kim is unclear about is that he has concerns about whether his country can surely trust the United States over its promise to end hostile relations (with North Korea) and provide a security guarantee if they do denuclearization,Ž Moon said. During the South KoreaU.S. summit, President Trump said the U.S. is willing to clearly put an end to hostile relations (between the U.S. and North Korea) and help (the North) achieve economic prosperity if North Korea conducts denuclearization,Ž he said. Kim, in a dispatch issued by the Norths state-run news service earlier Sunday, expressed his “xed will on the historic (North Korea)-U.S. summit talks.Ž During Saturdays inter-Korean summit, the Korean leaders agreed to positively cooperate with each other as ever to improve (North Korea)-U.S. relations and establish (a) mechanism for permanent and durable peace.Ž They agreed to have their top of“cials meet again June 1. Moon said military generals and Red Cross of“cials from the Koreas will also meet separately to discuss how to ease military tensions and resume reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. Saturdays Korean summit came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a TrumpKim meeting. Despite repeated references to denuclearization of the Korean PeninsulaŽ by the North, it remains unclear whether Kim will ever agree to fully abandon his nuclear arsenal. The North has previously used the term to demand the United States pull out its 28,500 troops in South Korea and withdraw its so-called nuclear umbrella security commitment to South Korea and Japan. The North hasnt openly repeated those same demands after Kims sudden outreach to Seoul and Washington. Moon has insisted Kim can be persuaded to abandon his nuclear facilities, materials and bombs in a veri“able and irreversible way in exchange for credible security and economic guarantees. Moon said Sunday that the Norths disarmament could still be a dif“cult process even if Pyongyang, Washington and Seoul dont differ over what complete denuclearizationŽ of the peninsula means. Before he canceled the summit, Trump did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North. Following an unusually provocative 2017 in which Kims engineers tested a purported thermonuclear warhead and three longrange missiles theoretically capable of striking mainland U.S. cities, the North Korean leader has engaged in a ”urry of diplomatic activity in recent months. He has had the summits with Moon and Chinese leader Xi Jinping, as well as two meetings with Pompeo.Trump says US team in NKorea planning summit with KimBy CATHERINE LUCEY, MATTHEW LEE, HYUNG-JIN KIM and FOSTER KLUGASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON „ The Supreme Court is heading into the “nal month of its term, facing decisions on gerrymandering, unions, gay rights, abortion and President Donald Trumps travel ban. This terms best-known case is a culture-war clash that pits equal rights for gay customers against a claim of religious liberty from a Christian store owner. It is one of three major cases that feature a compelled speechŽ claim from conservatives who object to liberal state laws. The others involve union fees and Californias required disclosures for crisis pregnancy centers.Ž The justices are expected to announce decisions on the “rst day of every workweek until the end of June, and then adjourn for the summer.MAJOR PENDING CASES:€ Partisan gerrymandering: The court will decide a political line-drawing dispute that could determine which party controls Congress and many state legislatures in the decade ahead. At issue is whether state lawmakers may deliberately redraw election districts to ensure that a particular party controls most of the seats, even when most voters cast ballots for the other party. In the past, the court has struck down districts drawn along racial lines, but it has never struck down an election map because it was unfairly partisan. € Gay rights and religion: The court will decide whether certain store owners are entitled to an exemption from a states anti-discrimination law because of their religious beliefs. The case began when Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker and a conservative Christian, refused to make a wedding cake for a samesex couple. Colorado, like California and 20 other states, requires businesses that are open to the public to provide full and equalŽ service to all customers regardless of sexual orientation. Phillips appealed on free-speech grounds, arguing that designing a custom cake is a form of expression. € Unions and public employees: The court will decide whether teachers, police and other public employees in California, New York and 20 other mostly Democratic states can be required by law to pay a fair share feeŽ to cover the cost of collective bargaining even if they dont belong to a union. The justices upheld such contracts in 1977, but said then that employees did not have to pay for the unions political spending. Anti-union advocates say the court now should go further and rule that forced fees violate the First Amendment because they require some employees to support a group whose views they may oppose. € Trump and the travel ban: The court will decide whether Trump has the power, acting on his own, to bar most visitors and immigrants from several Muslimmajority nations. The controversy over Trumps travel ban erupted during his “rst week in the White House, and his orders were repeatedly blocked by judges on the West and East coasts. They ruled that his orders were unconstitutional because they discriminated against Muslims. Others said he overstepped his authority under U.S. immigration laws. But the Supreme Court allowed the latest version of Trumps order to go into effect in December. € Cellphones and privacy: The court will decide whether police must obtain a search warrant based on probable causeŽ before they obtain data from a cellphone company that would allow them to track a suspects movements for days or weeks at a time. Privacy advocates on the right and the left agree on the need for warrants, and California law already includes such a requirement. But investigators say they sometimes need the data to identify a crime suspect or a terrorist. € Pregnancy centers and abortion: The court will decide whether California can require faith-based crisis pregnancy centersŽ to notify their patients that the state provides free or low cost prenatal care and abortion for eligible women.Ž State lawmakers said these posted disclosures were needed because these centers use deceptive advertisingŽ to confuse or misinform women. But the challengers say the required noti“cations are compelled speechŽ that violates the First Amendment and drowns out the centers pro-life messages.Ž € Online merchants and sales taxes: The court will decide whether internet merchants can be required to collect sales taxes for all the states and thousands of municipalities where their customers live. It is a $10 billion a year issue for states, a potential headache for small-scale merchants and a matter of basic fairness for traditional retail stores, which must collect such taxes. € Voting rolls and purges: The court will decide whether states can remove people from the voting rolls if they do not cast ballots for two years and do not respond to several notices in the mail. Ohio says it wants to clean up its voting rolls, but civil rights lawyers said the state has wrongly removed thousands of registered voters. And they point to a federal law that says voters may not be dropped simply because of they dont vote. Supreme Court will soon rule on gay rights, gerrymanderingBy DAVID G. SAVAGETRIBUNE WASHINGTON BUREAUNEW YORK „ In the largest disturbance yet in Disneys otherwise lucrative reign over Star Wars,Ž the Han Solo spinoff Solo: A Star Wars StoryŽ opened well below expectations with a franchise-low $83.3 million in ticket sales over the three-day weekend in North American theaters. Disney estimated Sunday that SoloŽ will gross $101 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, a “gure below even the opening weekends of the much-derided Star WarsŽ prequels. Last week, forecasts ran as high as $150 million for the fourday haul of Solo.Ž Overseas ticket sales were even worse. Solo,Ž starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role made iconic by Harrison Ford, grossed $65 million internationally in its opening weekend, including a paltry $10.1 million in China. Of course we would have hoped for this to be a bit bigger,Ž said Dave Hollis, Disneys distribution chief. SoloŽ came in with a Millennium Falcons worth of baggage following the mid-production “ring of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who were replaced by Ron Howard. With the rejiggered production, the budget soared well past $250 million. But the cause of the spinoffs disappointing performance may have had as much to do with Star WarsŽ fatigue (The Last JediŽ exited theaters just last month) and the stiffer competition of a summer holiday weekend. While no major releases dared to open against Solo,Ž Foxs Deadpool 2Ž moved its release date up a week ahead of Solo.Ž The gambit may have hurt both releases. After debuting with $125 million last weekend, the R-rated Ryan Reynolds sequel dropped 66 percent to second place with $42.7 million and an estimated $53.5 million four-day haul. SoloŽ notched the biggest Memorial Day weekend opening in several years, but it also came on the heels of a pair of a summer-sized blockbusters „ Deadpool 2Ž and Disneys own Avengers In“nity WarŽ „ making for an unusually crowded May. In“nity WarŽ added $16.5 million in its “fth weekend to bring its domestic total to $621.7 million and its global sales to $1.9 billion „ both among the highest of all-time. There were also questions beyond the effect the calendar had on Solo.Ž While reviews were generally positive (71 percent freshŽ on Rotten Tomatoes), there was little about SoloŽ that made the movie a must-see event. As it arrived in theaters, Disney might have been wishing it had instead made a Lando Calrissian spinoff with the red-hot Donald Glover, the star of TVs Atlanta.Ž In the days ahead of release, Lucas“lm President Kathleen Kennedy said a Lando movie is a possibility. While the original Star WarsŽ “lms helped de“ne the summer moviegoing experience, Disney released their previous three Star WarsŽ “lms in December. What most hurt SoloŽ was the fatigue factorŽ of a May Star WarsŽ “lm following a December one, said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. Its the compressed timeframe between the two Star Wars “lms and the highly competitive nature of this marketplace. It is summer, after all,Ž said Dergarabedian. The good news is that the next “lm isnt until December 2019. Thats plenty of breathing space.Ž That time might also be valuable for Lucas“lm and Disney to “nd a way to counter the diminishing returns of its multi-billion-dollar franchise. To help propel SoloŽ internationally, Disney brought the “lm to Cannes Film Festival, ”ooding the French “lm festivals red carpet with Storm Troopers. The Last JediŽ also ”opped in China (it was pulled from theaters after a week), and Rian Johnsons movie „ even though it grossed $1.3 billion worldwide „ showed relatively weak legs at the box of“ce, while proving divisive among Star WarsŽ die-hards. The magic around a Star WarsŽ “lm may be fading. To right the ship on Episode 9, Lucas“lm has turned to an old friend: The Force AwakensŽ director J.J. Abrams. He, too, is replacing a “red director after Colin Trevorrow departed last fall. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

Page 4 The Sun / Monday, May 28, 2018 ALMANAC Today is Monday, May 28, the 148th day of 2018. There are 217 days left in the year. This is the Memorial Day observance. Today in history On May 28, 1918, American troops fought their first major battle during World War I as they launched an offensive against the German-held French village of Cantigny; the Americans succeeded in capturing the village. On this date In 1533 the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, declared the marriage of Englands King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn valid. In 1912 the Senate Commerce Committee issued its report on the Titanic disaster that cited a state of absolute unpreparedness,Ž improperly tested safety equipment and an indifference to dangerŽ as some of the causes of an unnecessary tragedy.Ž In 1929 the first all-color talking picture, On with the Show!Ž produced by Warner Bros., opened in New York. In 1937 President Franklin D. Roosevelt pushed a button in Washington signaling that vehicular traffic could begin crossing the just-opened Golden Gate Bridge in California. Neville Chamberlain became prime minister of Britain. In Nazi Germany, Volkswagen was founded by the German Labour Front. In 1940 during World War II, the Belgian army surrendered to invading German forces. In 1957 National League owners gave permission for the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants to move to Los Angeles and San Francisco. In 1987 to the embarrassment of Soviet officials, Mathias Rust, a young West German pilot, landed a private plane in Moscows Red Square without authorization. (Rust was freed by the Soviets the following year.) In 1998 comic actor Phil Hartman, 49, of Saturday Night LiveŽ and NewsRadioŽ fame was shot to death at his home in Encino, California, by his wife, Brynn, who then killed herself.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports retiree Anne Bruinooge checked the last state off her list Thursday as she laid down a mat and did a headstand outside of the Alaska newspapers office. Bruinooge says she has been traveling around the country for the past decade, doing headstands in every state that she and her husband visit. Bruinooge, who is an avid participant of yoga, says her motivation was simply the fun of doing headstands.Ž Bruinooge says she isnt sure if anyone else has ever attempted to do a headstand in each state.ODD NEWS Woman does a headstand in all 50 statesFROM PAGE ONEAs the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy approaches, conspiracy theories still abound. The latest to add his voice to those who believe there was a second gunman is the senators son Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Sirhan B. Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, was arrested and later convicted of the shooting at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles shortly after midnight June 5, 1968. Kennedy, a presidential candidate at the time, was killed moments after celebrating his victory in Californias Democratic primary. Although Sirhan was captured at the scene with a .22-caliber handgun in his hand and later admitted that he shot Kennedy, new evidence has emerged over the years that suggests there may have been as many as 13 shots “red that night. Sirhans gun held only eight bullets. There has also been disagreement among experts over the years about whether some of the recovered bullets were “red from the same gun. In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Kennedys son said that he has conducted his own detailed research into the assassination and now believes there was a second gunman. He is calling for a new investigation. He also revealed for the “rst time that he visited Sirhan last December at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego. I got to a place where I had to see Sirhan,Ž Kennedy told the Post. I went there because I was curious and disturbed by what I had seen in the evidence.Ž Kennedy, who was 14 when his father died, did not disclose what he and Sirhan talked about. But after their three-hour conservation, he concluded that there was a second gunman at the hotel the night of the shooting. I was disturbed that the wrong person might have been convicted of killing my father,Ž Kennedy told the paper. My father was the chief law enforcement of“cer in this country. I think it would have disturbed him if somebody was put in jail for a crime they didnt commit.Ž After delivering a victory speech at the Ambassador, Kennedy and his entourage were on their way to a press conference elsewhere at the hotel, taking a shortcut via the kitchen pantry when the candidate stopped to shake hands with some of the staff. Suddenly, gun“re erupted, with bullets hitting Kennedy in the back, through his armpit and another into his brain. Five other people were injured, including Paul Schrade, a regional director of the United Auto Workers union and a key Kennedy supporter. He survived the shooting and also told the Post that he believed that a second gunman actually killed Kennedy. An autopsy report found Sirhan had been standing in front of Kennedy when he was shot and so conspiracy theorists have argued over the years that this would have made it impossible for a shot to have hit Kennedy in the back. But others have argued that Kennedy turned around after the “rst shot to try to protect himself. Sirhan, now 74, was initially convicted of “rst-degree murder and sentenced to death for the crime. But his sentence was later commuted to life. His requests for parole have repeatedly been denied. Schrade, now living in Laurel Canyon, told the Post that he was the one who convinced Robert Kennedy Jr. to re-examine the evidence regarding a second gunman. Once Schrade showed me the autopsy report,Ž Kennedy told the paper, then I didnt feel like it was something I could just dismiss. Which is what I wanted to do.ŽRobert Kennedy Jr. backs 2nd-gunman theory in his fathers assassinationBy ANH DOLOS ANGELES TIMES BORIS YARO / LOS ANGELES TIMESBusboy Juan Romero crouches with presidential candidate Robert F.

At 5 p.m. Sunday, Alberto was centered about 165 miles west of Tampa and had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. Forecasters said Alberto has most recently taken a north-northwest track that would bring it over the northern Gulf of Mexico during the night and make landfall on or in the vicinity of the Florida Panhandle on Monday. 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. Forecasters cautioned that heavy rain and tropical storm conditions could reach the northern Gulf Coast well ahead of the center of Alberto making landfall. Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center in Miami discontinued all storm surge warnings for most of the states peninsula. Mark Bowen, the Bay County Emergency management director, said at a Sunday afternoon news conference that the concern isnt with storm surge due to the timing of landfall and the tides. He said Albertos biggest threat will be its heavy rains, with forecasts of anywhere from four to 12 inches of rain in some areas. In Taylor County, there were voluntary evacuations for those in coastal zones and beach communities, mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas. In Gulf County, T. H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park began evacuations Sunday morning. The hurricane center said Sunday that a tropical storm warning was in effect from Bonita Beach, Florida, to the Mississippi-Alabama border. In Gulf Shores, Alabama, webcams showed beaches starting to “ll up as the storms track shifted slightly east away from the region, but red ”ags on the beach warned beachgoers to stay out of the rough water. Grant Brown, the citys public information of“cer, said they had already “nished a number of preparations such as clearing culverts to prepare for big rains. With conditions expected to worsen overnight, of“cials are encouraging people planning to check out Monday to give themselves extra time.ALBERTOFROM PAGE 1 Bush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford. A spokeswoman said Sunday all information would be released by the Bush family. Bush arrived in Maine for the summer May 20. Coming about a month after the death of his wife, Barbara, of 73 years, the family said the 41st president was eager to return to the family compound on Walkers Point. He has visited every summer since childhood, the only exception being the years of his World War II service. On Saturday, Bush attended a pancake breakfast at an American Legion post in Kennebunkport. He had been scheduled to attend a Memorial Day parade in the town Monday. Bush, who has a form of Parkinsons disease and a history of pneumonia and other infections, was hospitalized in Houston on April 22, the day after his wifes funeral, for an infection. He remained hospitalized for 13 days. Bush uses a wheelchair and an electric scooter for mobility. He has been hospitalized several times in recent years for respiratory problems.BUSHFROM PAGE 1WASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps legal team would advise that he refuse to submit to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller unless the team can review classi“ed information shared with select lawmakers about the origins of the FBI investigation into Russias election meddling, Trumps personal lawyer said Sunday. Rudy Giuliani said that should Muellers investigators seek a court order to compel the president to testify, Trumps lawyers would “ght such a subpoena all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary. I think we win it,Ž Giuliani said. Giuliani downplayed the chances that Trump would “re Mueller, a Republican who once was FBI director and has served under GOP presidents. Asked if Trump would dismiss anyone if the investigation kept going, Giuliani told Fox News SundayŽ that “rings would play into the hands of playing the victim, Watergate.Ž Giulianis public negotiation over terms of an interview focuses on the use of a government informant who approached members of Trumps 2016 campaign in a possible bid to glean intelligence on Russian efforts to sway his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump has made unproven claims of FBI misconduct and political bias and has denounced the informant, without evidence, as a spy.Ž The two meetings with select lawmakers, held last Thursday, were requested by Trumps GOP allies in Congress and arranged by the White House. The president has tried to sow suspicions about the legitimacy of the FBI investigation, and he and his allies have focused on the use of the informant. After the meetings, which included Justice Department, FBI of“cials, congressional leaders from both parties and Democratic and Republican leaders of the intelligence committees, Democrats said they saw no evidence to support Republican allegations that the FBI acted inappropriately. Nonetheless, Giuliani said the Trump camp wants access to the material presented at those brie“ngs to help prepare the president for a possible interview with Mueller. If they dont show us these documents, well, we are just going to have to say no,Ž Giuliani said. Its unclear, however, if Trump would heed his lawyers advice. Justice Department of“cials didnt immediately return a message seeking comment on whether the president had requested a brie“ng similar to what was provided to members of Congress last week. In a separate television appearance, Giuliani said Trump was adamantŽ about wanting to agree to an interview, saying, If he wasnt thinking about it and it wasnt an active possibility, we would be “nished with that by now and we would have moved on to getting the investigation over with another way.Ž The new wrinkle, he said, if the disclosure about the informant. We are more convinced, as we see it, that this is a rigged investigation. Now we have this whole new Spygate thing thrown on top of it, on top of already very legitimate questions,Ž he told CNNs State of the Union.Ž Giuliani also raised the specter of a protracted legal “ght over the question of a Trump interview if Mueller decided to seek a subpoena. What we have to do is go to court and seek protection from the court, if we have to do that. Our “rst thing is we sure as heck are not going to testify unless its all straightened out, unless we learned the basis of that Russian investigation,Ž Giuliani told Fox.Giuliani advises no Mueller interview without informant infoTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS hit the wells. As long as conditions are safe, we will have personnel on site. Primary concern is sulfur dioxide from the eruption and lava coming on site. We monitor for hydrogen sul“de and sulfur dioxide on a continuous basis,Ž Kaleikini said. Steve Brantley of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said the ”ow seemed to have halted Sunday morning after moving slowly into the proximity of the well overnight. Lava had previously crossed onto an older part of the property, according to of“cials. But its now on 40 acres of the plant that are operational. Of“cials earlier this month carted away 50,000 gallons of potentially toxic gas away from the site, which lies on the southeast ”ank of the volcano, nestled between residential neighborhoods. They also capped the 11 wells at the property to try to prevent a breach. Lava-“lled “ssures have torn apart chunks of the southeastern side of the Big Island over the past three weeks as Kilaeau has become more active.LAVAFROM PAGE 1 FLASH FLOODING REPORTED IN MARYLAND AS HEAVY RAIN SOAKS AREAELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) „ Flash flooding and water rescues are being reported in Maryland as heavy rain soaks much of the state. News outlets on Sunday showed photos and video of brown water rushing down Main Street in Ellicott City, just outside Baltimore. Thats the same street devastated by flash flooding in July 2016. A flash flood emergency was issued in Marylands Howard County at 4:40 p.m. Some residents of Ellicott City told The Baltimore Sun the flooding appeared to be worse than a storm two years ago that killed two people and destroyed local businesses. Emergency management officials urged people to avoid downtown Ellicott City. Gov. Larry Hogan also asked people to avoid area roads. On Twitter, Hogan urged residents to seek higher ground if their area is under a flash flood warning.


The Sun /Monday, May 28, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband has Parkinson's disease. He also has a stent in his heart. We have been to many doctors to address a breathing problem: fast breathing. He experiences this daily, and we are told that it is anxiety. It is dicult to watch him go through this. It sometimes happens before he is due for his Sinemet, but other times right after taking it. He has been prescribed Xanax, clonidine, cannabidiol-infused gummies and a few others. One doctor says it is from Parkinson's, the rest say it is anxiety. „ E.W. ANSWER: Shortness of breath can have many causes, but someone with Parkinson's disease has an unusual possibility, called "respiratory dyskinesia" (which j ust means "abnormal movement of the muscles of breathing"). This is an involuntary rapid breathing that causes distress, and it usually happens an hour after taking a medication like Sinemet. Changing the dose can help with diagnosis, and working with a neurologist to adjust the dose of the Sinemet (which comes in fast-acting and slow-release formulations) can solve the problem. I would start with an expert on Parkinson's. Keeping a diary of when he takes his medication and when the breathing trouble starts and stops will be helpful, as would a video of what it looks like when happening. Having Parkinson's doesn't make someone less likely to have other causes of shortness of breath, and anyone with a stent in the heart (meaning a history of blockages of at least one heart artery) is at risk of developing further blockages. Poor blood ow to the heart is another potential cause. Get the Parkinson's evaluation rst. I would not recommend taking anti-anxiety medications unless there is clear evidence of benet. DEAR DR. ROACH: As a winemaker, I get my daily (small) dose of resveratrol through red wine. I drink about a half bottle daily. But I also take resveratrol supplements. What is the latest evidence as to the health benets of this natural polyphenol? Am I ingesting too much? „ G.G. ANSWER: Resveratrol is a substance found in red wine, coming from grape skins. One study in rats showed that it improved lifespan, and many people were interested in it. However, the dose of red wine needed to duplicate the study would be about 1,000 liters daily for a human; worse, a trial of resveratrol (in people with multiple myeloma) showed no benet, and ve of the 24 subjects developed kidney failure (it was not clear whether the myeloma or the resveratrol was responsible for the kidney damage. Also, the dose used was 5 grams, which is 10 to 20 times the size of the usual supplement). A trial in Alzheimer's disease patients was too short to prove benet but did seem to show increased brain volume. A 2016 review shows that at high doses, it lowers blood pressure (which often is raised by alcohol) and cholesterol. For that reason, resveratrol still holds promise, but it's too early to recommend as a supplement. It's not the resveratrol I'm worried about your getting too much of; it's alcohol. A half a bottle of wine (assuming average alcohol content, which varies a little) for an average-size man is two and a half glasses, which contains alcohol that is over the level of most recommendations (one glass for women, two for men, with food). For some people, wine enhances pleasure in life when taken moderately, and that's the only reason it should be consumed. Alcohol should not be taken for health reasons.DEAR ABBY: I lost my husband of 45 years three years ago. My longtime friend, "Grace," was very supportive and included me in family dinners and outings so I wouldn't be alone. A year ago, I moved away to start a new life for myself. Grace still lives in the same town and is still married to a verbally abusive, depressed husband. She told me once that she envied my freedom, but not how I got it. I have met a wonderful man. We are in love and will see where it goes. When I talk to or see Grace, she never asks about my life or what I am doing. She vents at length about her husband, her marriage and other things in her life. I think she liked it when I was miserable, too. Now that I'm happy, I don't want to see Grace anymore. She's using me as someone she can unload on, and in my opinion, that's not friendly. What should I do? Keep avoiding her? I don't want to confront her, but if I need to, I would like to do it in the best way. „ Moving On DEAR MOVING: I don't think you should "confront" Grace either, but avoiding her isn't the answer. Have an honest, non-confrontational talk with her. Tell her you are concerned that she is so unhappy. Explain that the amount of venting she's doing is creating a wedge between you, and she needs to make some important decisions about her life and her marriage. I don't know how economically dependent Grace is on her husband, but it might help her self-esteem to nd a job. If she's unable or unwilling to do that, she'll have to decide if this is how she wants to spend the rest of her life or discuss her options with an attorney. DEAR READERS: Along with the millions of Americans who are observing this Memorial Day, I add my prayer of thanks for those men and women who sacriced their lives in service to our country. May they rest in peace. „ Abby Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about giving children too many "things" and not doing enough "parenting." „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Having taught school for nearly 20 years, I've noticed that parents seem to think that giving their children computers, expensive cellphones or designer clothing makes up for not being present for their child. At teacher/parent conferences, we see fewer parents than we did just 10 years ago, and when we do see a parent, he or she is usually making excuses for the child's bad behavior or blaming the school for not teaching subjects that need to be taught at home, such as good manners, personal hygiene and morals.

Page 8 The Sun / Monday, May 28, 2018 FROM PAGE ONE The battle for the Aleutian island was one of the deadliest in the Paci“c in terms of the percentage of troops killed. Nearly all the Japanese forces, estimated at about 2,500 soldiers, died with only 28 survivors. About 550 or so U.S. soldiers were killed. American forces, many poorly out“tted for Alaska weather and trained in California for desert combat, recaptured Attu 11 months after the Japanese took it and a nearby island, Kiska. It was the only WWII battle fought on North American soil. The Japanese staged a last-ditch, desperate offensive May 29 at Engineer Hill. Japanese soldiers surprise American forces on Attu with a fanatical charge out of the mountains,Ž recounts an Associated Press chronology of WWII events in 1943. Savage “ghting rages throughout the day and into the following night. About 200 Japanese soldiers died in the assault, and the remaining 500 or so held grenades to their bellies and pulled the pins. It was the “rst of“cial case of gyokusai,Ž a Japanese euphemism for annihilation or mass suicide in the name of Emperor Hirohito, which increasingly occurred in other Japanese battle“elds. Tomimatsu Takahashi told Japanese public television network NHK in 2010 he was being treated for a bullet wound when the order for the “nal charge came. I was going to die, I thought,Ž he said. But as he headed out to “ght, he collapsed, likely because he hadnt eaten in days. He was captured and sent to several mainland POW camps „ including in Seattle, San Francisco and Chicago „ before he returned home to Japans Iwate prefecture in 1947. His family already had a funeral and grave for him. I felt so relieved to be home,Ž he said. But I never thought I was lucky to be alive. I thought I survived because I was not lucky. I felt I was not supposed to come back, because those who went to war were not supposed to come back, and thats what we were taught.Ž After the battle, Dover said things went back to normal for the American soldiers „ except one thing: Somebody had to bury those Japanese.Ž During the war, the U.S. Army buried the Japanese soldiers bodies with care, built a memorial, set up a grave post and paid respects to the spirits, said Nobuyuki Yamazaki, whose grandfather died on Attu. Yamazaki was among a delegation of Japanese soldiers descendants who attended a 75th anniversary celebration this month in Anchorage. The families have formally petitioned the Japanese government to have the remains returned, Anchorage television station KTVA reported. Japanese people “nd great comfort when the remains of the Japanese are buried in our homeland,Ž Yamazaki said. The Aleut people living on Attu Island also suffered losses, becoming the only North American community to be imprisoned in Japan during the war, according to the book Attu: The Forgotten Battle,Ž by John Haile Cloe. While Kiska was unpopulated, about 45 Aleuts lived on Attu Island. When Japanese forces invaded, the Aleuts were captured and sent to Japans Hokkaido Island, where about half died, most from malnutrition or starvation. The survivors never returned to Attu. The Army said it would be too expensive to rebuild their village, and they were relocated after the war. The battle over Attu proved to be unimportant to the rest of the war, possibly why its forgotten today. However, American planes did use the island to bomb the northernmost reaches of Japan. And author and historian Cloe, who died in 2016, told the AP in 1993 that the Army learned much about amphibious landings and Japanese tactics from the battle. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now owns Attu Island, which is part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Seventy-“ve years later, 102-year-old Allan Seroll of Massachusetts, who worked in communications including Morse code for the Army Signal Corps, still carries the burden of the Battle of Attu. I wake up in the middle of the night, and I cant go back to sleep,Ž Seroll told KTVA. Thats what this has done to me. Thats how much it affected me and still does.ŽBATTLEFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 23, 1943 le photo, U.S. Army reinforcements land on a beach during World War II on Attu Island, part of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska.

BOSTON „ The solemn display of tens of thousands of U.S. ”ags that “rst appeared on Boston Common for Memorial Day a decade ago, honoring service members who have died defending the nation, is slowly becoming a national movement. The ”ag gardens, as they are known, can be seen this weekend in Texas, Louisiana, Ohio and New York, all started by local residents inspired by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund tribute established in 2010. We are extraordinarily proud that what we intended to do for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has been brought to a scale that we never fully anticipated,Ž said Tom Crohan, president of the nonpro“ts board of directors. The concept has even spread to Canada, where thousands of Canadian ”ags are planted in Toronto on Remembrance Day in November, when Canada honors its military members who have died in the line of duty. The Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund was founded in 2009 to support to the families of active duty service members killed since 9/11. The “rst sea of ”uttering stars and stripes included 20,000 ”ags, one for every Massachusetts resident who gave their life in war since World War I. This year, more than 37,000 ”ags honoring those who have died dating to the Revolutionary War have been planted. What makes the stirring display so special is that its so unexpected. Most people who see it are just walking across the Common for another reason, Crohan said. Its almost impossible to walk past that site without stopping,Ž Crohan said. Thats what happened with Chuck Schneider, executive pastor of Sagemont Church in Houston. Schneider and his wife were on vacation in Boston three years ago and on the way to Fenway Park for a Red Sox game when they saw the ”ag garden. With the help of hundreds of volunteers from the churchs congregation, 38,000 ”ags are planted on church grounds, each one representing a Texan who died in service dating to the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. Janet Broussard, a member of the Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana, was inspired by pictures of Bostons tribute. For “ve years now, the organization has planted 11,000 ”ags on Statehouse grounds in Baton Rouge. Karen Carmen, community services director for the city of Beachwood near Cleveland, saw an article about the Boston display in her local newspaper. Since 2012, the city has been painting a 30-foot-by 60-foot U.S. ”ag on city property and decorating it with hundreds of smaller ”ags. Like Crohan, they say they get the greatest satisfaction from visitors reactions. Broussards favorite moment was the time a little girl of about 4 whose father had died in Iraq visited the Baton Rouge ”ag garden. She asked Which one is my Daddys? That just made it all worthwhile,Ž Broussard said.Memorial Day flag garden idea spreadsBy MARK PRATTASSOCIATED PRESS HONORING OUR VETERANS AP PHOTOIn this May 24 photo, ags are seen on Boston Common in Boston, which are placed there for Memorial Day. BELLEAU, France „ High-ranking military of“cials from the United States, France and Germany took part in Memorial Day ceremonies at an American cemetery in France on Sunday to mark the centennial of the battle of Belleau Wood, a turning point in World War I and a key moment in U.S. Marine Corps history. The ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in the village of Belleau featured speeches Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller and other military of“cials, prayers, wreath laying, poem readings, and the national anthems of the three countries. More than 5,000 people attended the event to commemorate the “erce, monthlong battle, which is considered the “rst major engagement of U.S. troops in the war. Belleau Wood, where Marines helped Allied Forces secure victory, also helped to establish the prestige and reputation for bravery of the Marine Corps overseas. Rear Admiral Brent Scott, chaplain of the U.S. Marine Corps, said the battle was a critical turning pointŽ for the Corps. There are many great stories that have come out of this battle, that have inspired Marines for generations,Ž Scott told The Associated Press. Most of the 2,289 American soldiers, including 474 Marines, buried in the Belleau cemetery died in the French northern Aisne-Marne region in 1918. More than a thousand other servicemen are memorialized and honored by name on Walls of the Missing. The June 1918 battle in and outside the Belleau Wood and the decisive engagement of the U.S. forces became a de“ning moment in WWI by containing a break by German troops through the Western Front and foiling their push toward Paris. After the hostilities of World War I ended with the Armistice on Nov 11, 1918, many American families faced the decision of whether to bring their dead home or to have them buried where they fell. Despite the distance and the decades that have passed, the service members still are honored each year for Memorial Day. But the task of remembering them has fallen after 100 years to grandchildren or distant relatives who sometimes travel from far away to pay their respects. Mark Shively and his wife, Linda, from Oregon, crossed the United States and the Atlantic Ocean to spend Memorial Day with the of“cer who left a lasting impression on Shivelys grandfather. Weve been talking about it for a couple of years, to come and visit France, to retrace his footsteps,Ž Shively said. We wanted to lay ”owers here to remember (my grandfathers) commander. He really loved this man.Ž Shivelys grandfather, Marine Corps Pvt. Norman Alfred Roberts, fought in the battle of Belleau Wood in June 1918. He was gassed and wounded on June 12, according to a small pocket diary he kept and that his descendants keep as a memento. After recovering and being wounded a second time, Roberts was sent home after the Armistice. His unit commander, Marine Corps Lt. Carleton Burr, a 1913 Harvard graduate from Milton, Massachusetts, would not be as lucky. While Burr survived the carnage while “ghting alongside Roberts at Belleau Wood, he was killed in action in July 1918. At the Aisne-Marne cemetery, Lt. Burr lies in plot A, row 2, grave 76.US Marines bravery celebrated 100 years after French battleBy VIRGINIA MAYO and PHILIPPE SOTTOASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOA U.S. Marine Corps soldier stands next to a headstone as he attends a Memorial Day commemoration at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, France, Sunday. COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) „ The brutality in”icted against decorated African-American World War II veteran Sgt. Isaac Woodard by a Southern police chief is credited with inspiring President Harry Truman to integrate the military in 1948, but few people know Woodwards name. After being honorably discharged from the Army, Woodard was removed from a Greyhound bus in Batesburg, South Carolina, and beaten by a white police chief. It left the war veteran permanently blind. Now, Woodards supporters are seeking to erect a civil rights marker in his honor in South Carolina. They say his ferocious beating helped draw U.S. attention to the discrimination and mistreatment of blacks returning home from war. Historians say Woodards case and the outcry it prompted drove the “rst cracks into American segregation years ahead of the civil rights era.Little known story of WWII vet

PETERSBURG „ The Tampa Bay Rays latest bullpen day had a rocky beginning and a strong finish. Relievers Vidal Nuno and Austin Pruitt combined to throw 8 ‡ scoreless innings, Brad Miller had three RBIs and the Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 on Sunday. Nuno (1-0) and Pruitt followed Sergio Romo, who was charged with three runs in one-third of an inning as the starter as the Rays went with an unconventional pitching lineup for the third consecutive day. We got ourselves in a little hole there but I thought we chipped away at it nice,Ž Miller said. We exploded there, and then Pruitt and Nuno shut it down the rest of the way.Ž Nuno worked out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the third and gave up three hits and four walks over three scoreless innings. Pruitt entered in the fourth and limited Baltimore to three hits over the final 5 ‡ innings to get his first save. I had one (save) last year that was three innings, but 5 ‡ innings, thats lengthy,Ž Pruitt said. Since the save became an official stat in 1969, only three others have gone at least 5 ‡ innings to get one: Texas Joaquin Benoit (seven innings, Sept. 3, 2002), Horacio Pena of the Rangers (six innings, April 23, 1972) and Oaklands Bob Locker (5 ‡ innings, August 12, 1970). Millers two-run double in third off Kevin Gausman (3-4) tied it at 3. The Rays advantage grew to 7-3 when Joey Wendle hit an RBI single, Mallex Smith had a run-scoring grounder and Christian Arroyo knocked in a pair with a single. Miller hit a solo homer in the first. His three RBIs matched his total from the previous 15 games. The way we have a lot of guys clicking right now, its just kind of fun,Ž Miller said. Gausman allowed seven runs, six hits and two walks in 2 ‡ innings for last-place Baltimore, which dropped two of three at Tampa Bay to finish a season-long 11-game trip at 4-7. We certainly helped them with a lack of command,Ž Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. (Gausman) wasnt the only one. All our guys had trouble with lack of command today.Ž Nuno came in with the bases loaded and one out in the first and gave up a sacrifice fly to Chris Davis. Chance Sisco walked with the bases loaded before Craig Gentry made it 3-0 on a run-scoring bunt single. Its very frustrating,Ž Davis said. Anytime we score runs early in the game, we expect to win.Ž Tampa Bay planned to begin the season by using a four-man rotation and relying on the bullpen on the fifth day. But Nathan Eovaldi got hurt at the end of spring training and Jake Faria went on the disabled list on Wednesday with a strained left oblique. Romo also started Fridays series opener and four of the Rays last eight games over a nine-day stretch. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Romo is the first pitcher with four starts in nine days since Claude Osteen of the Chicago White Sox in 1975. Carlos Gomez had a solo homer in the seventh for the Rays.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: CF Adam Jones got the day off after playing two days on turf. ...

Their story still carries a ring of impossibility, but theyre close to adding a real ring to every hand in the dressing room full of self-described Golden Misfits,Ž as their T-shirts say. The Capitals have repeatedly fallen short of their postseason goals during Ovechkins career, including a heartbreaking shutout loss to MarcAndre Fleury in Game 7 of the second round against Pittsburgh last spring. After falling to Fleurys champion Penguins in the past two postseasons, the Caps revamped their roster with youth and finally overcame years of playoff disappointment to reach their first Final in two decades. Of course, Fleury is in the way again „ in goal for the Golden Knights. Neither team was the favorite to get this far. Neither team is ready to stop now. While Capitals coach Barry Trotz skated his nowcustomary hot lap before practice at T-Mobile Arena, the Golden Knights had their usual standing roomonly crowd for practice at their training complex in suburban Summerlin. Their grip on this sportshungry town was already strong, and the 24-hour gambling mecca will come to a standstill this week during the Cup games in the arena behind the New York New York hotel-casino and its 150-foot Statue of Liberty, which has been wearing a Golden Knights jersey since April. Speaking of largerthan-life figures in hockey sweaters, this series showcases two major talents who can cement a legacy. Ovechkin is a formidable scorer and competitor, but he has never won an Olympic medal with Russia or a Stanley Cup ring with the Caps. Hes keeping a sense of humor about this momentous trip: With a straight face Sunday, Ovechkin said Russian President Vladimir Putin had called him to wish him luck, before adding: Im just joking.ŽNHLFrom Page 1AP PHOTOTampa Bay Rays infielders, from left to right, first baseman Brad Miller, third baseman Matt Duffy, shortstop Daniel Robertson and second baseman Joey Wendle celebrate after they defeated the Baltimore Orioles yesterday in St. Petersburg.

The Sun / Monday, May 28, 2018 SP Page 3By JOEDY McCREARYAssociated PressDURHAM, N.C. „ Florida State is once again playing its best baseball late in the season „ and, for that matter, late in games. It added up to yet another Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament title. Drew Mendoza hit a two-run double in the 10th inning, and the Seminoles beat Louisville 11-8 on Sunday to win their third ACC Tournament championship in four years. You win with people,Ž coach Mike Martin said, and we have good character people.Ž Mendoza finished with three RBIs, and tournament MVP Cal Raleigh and Rafael Bournigal each drove in two runs to help the fifth-seeded Seminoles (43-17) become the first team since Wake Forest in 1999 to win consecutive ACC tournaments. A lot of teams peak at the wrong time of the year,Ž Raleigh said. With us, that hasnt happened, and it feels like were climbing and we want to take that momentum into (NCAA) regionals and super regionals and get back to OmahaŽ for the College World Series. Florida State improved to 16-1 in conference tournament games since 2014, with the only loss coming in the 2016 final against Clemson. Three of the Seminoles four wins in Durham this week came in their last at-bat. Were used to the extra-inning feel, and I think that proved true here,Ž Mendoza said. We still had energy going into extras.Ž The Seminoles loaded the bases with one out in the 10th on a single by Rhett Aplin and two walks issued by reliever Michael McAvene (0-1). Mendoza lined a double down the right-field line off reliever Shay Smiddy to score Jackson Lueck and Aplin, and Steven Wells then scored on Reese Alberts RBI groundout. Were a big-inning club,Ž Mendoza said. We always play for that big inning. ... We eventually got it.Ž Freshman Jonah Scolaro (2-1) pitched a perfect bottom of the 10th, his third inning of relief, for the victory. Ole Miss 9, LSU 1: Tim Rowe and Michael Fitzsimmons hit two-run homers and Nick Fortes went 4 for 4 to lead Mississippi to a 9-1 victory over LSU on Sunday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament championship game.

Ole Miss busted open a 3-1 game with two big hits in the seventh following a clutch performance from Ryan Rolison (9-4) in his “ rst relief appearance. Will Golsan delivered a two-run single and Rowe followed with a blast to center “ eld. That came after Rolison got two straight strikeouts to escape a one-out, bases loaded jam unscathed in the sixth. Rolison had started Wednesdays loss to Auburn and thrown 86 pitches over 6 ‡ innings. He gave Ole Miss two more big innings in the “ nale, giving up one walk and no hits. After a week “ lled with weather delays „ and a game halted because of fog „ the “ nale was played under sunny skies. And Ole Miss dominated, outhitting the Tigers 15-4. Rowe hit his second homer of the season and Fitzsimmons, who came in as a pinch-hitter, got his third. Fortes “ nished with 10 hits in “ ve tournament games, scoring twice and driving in a run against the Tigers. LSU came into the week with uncertain NCAA regional prospects but as usual had success in Hoover. LSU coach Paul Mainieri remained tied with predecessor Skip Bertman and former Alabama coach Jim Wells with six tournament titles. Hes 35-8 in SEC tournament games. Ole Miss starter Houston Roth made it one out into the “ fth and reliever Will Stokes stranded a runner on third. The Rebels chased LSU starter Caleb Gilbert with two straight hits to open the fourth. The Hoover native had returned to the mound four days after starting and going 3-‡ innings against South Carolina. Ole Miss had 10 hits in the “ rst four innings „ and left eight runners on base for a modest 3-1 lead. Rebels leadoff batter Grae Kessinger opened the game with an in“ eld single. He was doubled up on a ” y ball to center “ eld and left the game with a hamstring injury. LSU got its only run on doubles by Antoine Duplantis and Daniel Cabrera in the “ rst Baylor 6, TCU 5: Shea Langeliers bases-loaded single in the 11th inning gave Baylor a 6-5 win over TCU on Sunday in the Big 12 Championship game. Conner Shepherds RBI single put TCU up 5-4 in the top of the 11th, but Baylor scored twice in the bottom half. Fifth-seeded Baylor (36-19) earned the leagues automatic NCAA Tournament berth. The Bears have won 22 of 25. TCUs A.J. Balta hit two homers, but he misjudged a ” y ball in right “ eld with two outs in the ninth inning when an out would have clinched the win for the Horned Frogs (33-23). Sixth-seeded TCU had won 14 of 19 heading into the “ nal, but three losses to Texas to close the regular season put its NCAA Tournament hopes in doubt. The Horned Frogs entered the Big 12 Tournament with an RPI of 54. The Horned Frogs have been to the College World Series four consecutive years, but they might get left out of the 64-team tournament “ eld when it is announced Monday. Baylors Davis Wendzel hit a three-run homer in the “ rst that scored Richard Cunningham and Nick Loftin. TCU countered with solo homers by Connor Wanhanen in the second and Balta in the third. Balta cranked his second homer in the eighth with a runner on to put TCU up 4-3. Baylor got two on with no outs in the eighth, but the Horned Frogs struck out the next two batters. Cole Haring launched a deep shot to center, but it was caught at the warning track to end the threat. TCU used three pitchers in the inning „ Cal Coughlin, Nick Lodolo and Sean Wymer „ and all three registered one out. TCU closer Durbin Feltman, who had missed nearly a month with an injury before returning during the Big 12 tournament, entered the game in the ninth to close with a 4-3 lead. With two outs, the Horned Frogs lost back-to-back ” y balls in the sun. On the second one, Balta lost Richard Cunninghams pop ” y to right “ eld and Nick Loftin scored to tie the game. Baylor got two on with no outs in the 10th but did not score. TCUs Trey Morris struck out Haring swinging with a full count and runners on “ rst and third with two outs. With TCU still up 5-4, Balta threw out Josh Bissonetter at home for the second out. Baylor eventually tied the game when Andy Thomas walked to score Loftin, setting up Langeliers hit. Minnesota 6, Purdue 4: Ben Mezzenga singled in the goahead run in the sixth inning and threw out what would have been the tying run at home in the eighth, and top-seeded Minnesota beat Purdue 6-4 in the Big Ten Tournament championship game Sunday. The regular-season champion Gophers (41-13) won their “ rst tournament title since 2010 and 10th in 37 years under coach John Anderson. Minnesota had outscored the Boilermakers 40-15 in two regular-season games, but this one was close throughout. The Gophers came back three times from one-run de“ cits in the “ rst six innings. They went ahead in the bottom of the sixth on singles by Luke Pettersen and Mezzenga. Mezzenga made his huge defensive play after Evan Kennedy doubled off All-Big Ten reliever Max Meyer. Charlie Nasuti pinch ran and tried to score from second when Evan Warden singled into left “ eld with two outs. Mezzenga came up th rowing and nailed Nasuti at the plate. The play was upheld after a video review. Minnesota tacked on an insurance run in the eighth when Tarrin Vavra, who homered in the third, doubled. Sam Thoresen (2-2) pitched 1 ‡ innings of relief for the win. Meyer worked the eighth and ninth for his 16th save. Trevor Cheaney (1-2) took the loss. Purdue (37-19) was picked 11th in the 14-team Big Ten but made a surprise run to second place. The Boilermakers loss Sunday was their “ rst in eight games, and theyve won 21 of 24 since April 20. Minnesota has won 27 of its last 30 and almost certainly will be named one of the 16 regional hosts for the NCAA Tournament.COLLEGE BASEBALL ROUNDUPFSU beats Louisville for ACC titleAP PHOTOFlorida States Cal Raleigh (35) lifts the trophy following an Atlantic Coast Conference NCAA college baseball tournament champ ionship game against Louisville in Durham, N.C., yesterday. By TALES AZZONIAssociated PressMADRID „ For a third straight year, Real Madrid celebrated a European title with its fans. Madrid brought the Champions League trophy home on Sunday and paraded it through the streets of the Spanish capital as thousands of fans saluted the newly crowned champions. Madrid was back in Spain after winning its 13th European title with a 3-1 win over Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday. The celebrations ended at a packed Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where players and fans shouted for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club. This (support) is very important for me,Ž said Ronaldo, who after the final in Ukraine hinted he could be leaving Madrid. Im proud to play in the greatest club in the world.Ž Ronaldo avoided making any specific comments about his future, although earlier in the day he had left a celebration by telling fans until next year.Ž The festivities began with players and team members participating in a ceremony at a local cathedral. Then they met with the city mayor and community president before addressing fans from a terrace at the Puerta del Sol square, one of Madrids main locations. It has become a routine to be here,Ž captain Sergio Ramos said. Hopefully it will continue for many years.Ž The team then got on an open bus and paraded with the trophy until reachin g the clubs traditional celebration spot, the Plaza de Cibeles, where fans had been waiting for the champions for hours. The players chanted Campeones, CampeonesŽ and We Are Kings of EuropeŽ along with the fans. Ramos and Marcelo carried the trophy across the walkway set up over the plazas fountain and draped the statue of the goddess Cibele with a Spain flag that carried Madrids name on it. Ramos also p ut a team scarf around the goddess head to huge cheers from the crowd as the song We Are The ChampionsŽ was played. The final stop was at the Bernabeu, where nearly 80,000 fans attended a ceremony honoring the European champions. Players and coaches were introduced one by one amid a lights show, then lifted the trophy on a midfield stage as confetti and fireworks blasted in the back g round. SOCCER: Champions LeagueMadrid celebrates title with fans back homesome teams as played a part, as well,Ž Manfred said. I think its clear that publicity suggesting a lack of competitiveness by a team is really problematic in terms of attendance.Ž The players association filed a grievance on Feb. 23 accusing Miami, Oakland, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay of failing to appropriately spend revenue-sharing money. No hearing has yet been scheduled in the case. Think about Tony Clark, the teams he was (referring) to,Ž Manfred said, referring to the union head. Oaklands above .500, Pittsburghs played great, quite frankly Tampas played OK in a really rough division. So you get into this cycle where through public comments people are doing damage to clubs that actually turn out to be OK.ŽBy ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. „ Florida State will host a regional in the NCAA baseball tournament for the 35th time, while Stetson was named a first-time host.

Page 6 SP Monday, May 28, 2018 / The SunBy MARK LONGAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ Danica Patrick trudged out of the infield care center with her head down, mirrored sunglasses covering the disappointment in her eyes. There was no hiding it in her voice. It was definitely not the way that I wanted it to end,Ž she said softly. The 36-year-old Patrick crashed out of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, ending her racing career at the track that made her famous. She lost traction on a slippery surface, spun as she exited Turn 2 and then slammed into two walls before coming to a stop. She finished 30th, her lowest spot in eight starts at The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.Ž Definitely not a great ending,Ž she said. But I kind of said before I came here that I feel like if its a complete disaster „ complete like as if not in the ballpark at all, look silly „ then people might remember that. If I win, people will remember that. But probably anything in between might just be a little part of a big story, so I kind of feel like thats how it is, you know.Ž The big story, of course, is her place in racing history. The former NASCAR star is the only female driver to lead laps in the Indy 500 and the Daytona 500, creating a strong brand and becoming a role model for little girls everywhere. She decided last season to end her racing career and start the next chapter of her life. She created the Danica DoubleŽ as a farewell tour, running one final time in the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500. She also crashed at Daytona in February and finished 35th. She spent the last few months getting re-acclimated to an Indy car after a sevenyear hiatus and looked like a contender while qualifying seventh. The final stop was a celebratory send-off that included dozens of family, friends and photographers following her every move before the finale. Patrick stood stoically behind her bright green race car during pre-race pageantry, with boyfriend and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, her parents and sister by her side. Patricks face was glistening, sweat rolling down her back in near-record-breaking heat. A crewmember quickly turned on a small, powerful fan. Patricks hair started blowing in the wind, turning her pose into an impromptu photo-shoot „ likely her last one in a firesuit. I was definitely nervous,Ž she said. I had all my people around me, so I was in good spirits.Ž Just before the singing of the national anthem, with the crowd as quiet as it would be all day, one fan screamed from the grandstands, Lets go Danica!Ž She smiled, turned and waved. After the anthem, she hugged her parents and sister and then got a long embrace from Rodgers. He whispered in her right ear, gave her a kiss and then smacked her on the butt as she maneuvered to get her helmet on and slide into the cockpit. Rodgers headed upstairs to watch the race from a luxury suite. Patrick dropped several spots shortly after the green flag, battling an ill-handling Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing. She was the first driver to make a pit stop in hopes of making a few changes. She was running in the middle of the field on Lap 68 when she spun sideways, hit the outside wall and then caromed across the track and into an inside barrier. She was evaluated at the care center and released. She answered a few questions outside the building and then got a golf cart ride for another media session. The final news conference of her racing career came with a hiccup. The television broadcast got piped over loudspeakers as she was trying to talk. Take my mic away,Ž she said, only half-joking. Ill leave. I dont even want to be here because Im pretty sad.Ž Patrick was a polarizing figure in racing, and that increased exponentially when she moved from IndyCar to NASCAR beginning in 2010. She struggled to run up front despite driving for a powerhouse StewartHaas Racing team much of her career, and she wound up with just seven top-10 finishes in five full seasons. Still, she is respected and, in some cases, revered at Indianapolis, where fans remember her leading the 2009 race before finishing third. She was surrounded by autograph-seekers all month, and she got one of the loudest ovations during driver introductions Sunday. Patrick said earlier this week she had no regrets about her career, and that she doesnt think she will have the itch to come back. Instead, she plans to spend time on her burgeoning business empire and with Rodgers. Im very grateful for everybody and for being able to finish it up like I wanted to,Ž she said. It still was a lot of great memories this month, a lot of great moments this year.ŽAUTO RACING: Indy 500Patrick ends racing career with crashAP PHOTODanica Patrick waves as shes introduced before the start of the Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in Indianapolis yesterday. a sip of the traditional milk, then dumped the rest over his head and around his crew. Liz Power reached for the empty milk bottle, then pointed out to her husband that hed sprayed milk all over one of the Indy 500 princesses. He apologized, then screamed some more. Splashing the princess was the only wrong move Power made all day during an event that saw many of IndyCars top drivers make costly mistakes. James Hinchcliffe, a championship contender, failed to make the race at all. Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais and Danica Patrick were among those who crashed in single-car spins. Defending race winner Takuma Sato was also knocked out when he ran into the back of a slower car. Power led 59 laps but his final pit stop dropped him to fourth, behind three cars that were trying to win on fuel mileage. Kanaans crash with 12 laps remaining set up a final restart with Oriol Servia out front. He didnt get a great restart and was passed by Stefan Wilson and Jack Harvey. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down. Wilson and Harvey both ducked onto pit lane for gas, giving Power the lead with four laps remaining. He knew he had it won when he took the white flag all alone, and spent the final lap yelling to himself in joy as he drove away from the field.500From Page 1By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressFORT WORTH, Texas „ Justin Rose got his first PGA Tour victory at Jack Nicklaus tournament. His latest came after finishing 20 under at Hogans Alley, three strokes ahead of defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. If you are able to win at a course that has great history, has had great champions, and if I begin to look at the courses Ive won at, this definitely strengthens that group even more,Ž Rose said after his closing 6-under 64 Sunday in the Fort Worth Invitational. Along with the plaid jacket that comes with winning at Colonial, the longest-running PGA Tour event still played at its original site (since 1946), Rose added to an impressive list of traditional courses where he has won. There was that victory at Muirfield Village in the 2010 Memorial, and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion among his nine PGA Tour wins. His 11 international victories include the 2014 Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, and the 2007 Volvo Masters at Valderrama in Spain. Im very proud of the places Ive been able to win,Ž Rose said. Im not saying they suit my game, but happy my game has turned up and Ive been inspired by some of these great venues.Ž In the final round at Colonial, where Ben Hogan won five times, Rose stayed aggressive while playing with Koepka even after starting the day with a four-stroke lead. Koepka shot 63 on way to his sixth runner-up finish in three years. Both of his second-place finishes this season have been behind Rose, the 37-yearold Englishman and No. 5 player in the world who also won his 2017-18 debut in October at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. It was very impressive the way he played all day. He never backed off,Ž Koepka said. Never really gave an opportunity for anybody to get in there.Ž Emiliano Grillo had a 64 to finish third at 16 under, his fifth top-10 in 16 starts this season. While Rose missed matching Zach Johnsons 2010 tournament scoring record of 259 because of bogey on the 72nd hole, first-round leader Kevin Na matched the course record with a closing 61 and finished fourth at 14 under. Fourth-ranked Jon Rahm shot 68 and was tied for fifth at 10 under with Louis Oosthuizen (68) and Kevin Tway (67). After birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 for the third day in a row, Rose gave up a stroke at the difficult 459-yard third when his drive went into a fairway bunker and he hit from there into the rough. Rose got that stroke back with a 23-foot birdie putt at the 474-yard fifth hole, the toughest at Colonial, to restore his lead to four over Koepka. Koepkas highlight shot of the day was birdie blast out of a greenside bunker at the sixth hole to get to 13 under. But Rose immediately responded by making his 12-foot birdie putt. Rose had a five-stroke lead, his biggest, after a 10-foot birdie at the ninth hole got him to 19 under. For Brooks to shoot 63 and not win in the final pairing took some doing from me. It was a really fun day to be part of,Ž Rose said. Glad that my A-game turned up when I needed it, and Im glad that I got my mindset right at the start of the day.Ž Na tapped in for a birdie at the 435-yard 18th hole to match his career-best score and become the seventh PGA Tour golfer with a 9-under round at Colonial „ the first since Chad Campbell in the third round in 2004. Na also shot a 61 in the third round of the 2010 Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. After an opening 62 that ended with a 92 foot chip-in from the rough when he ended his first round at No. 9, Na fell back in the field with a 73 in the second round and then shot even par Saturday. First round I was one out of it. I was thinking one of these days Im going to get a chance to shoot the course record,Ž Na said. I didnt think it would come on Sunday.ŽPGA: Fort Worth InvitationalRose 20 under for 3-stroke winAP PHOTOJustin Rose, right, of England, celebrates after winning the Fort Worth Invitational golf tournament at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, yesterday. By NOAH TRISTERAssociated PressANN ARBOR, Mich. „ Minjee Lee birdied the 18th hole Sunday for a one-stroke victory over In-Kyung Kim at the LPGA Volvik Championship. Lee, who turned 22 on Sunday, three-putted for a bogey on No. 17, dropping into a tie with Kim, who finished her round around the same time. So Lee needed a birdie to win on 18, a reachable par 5. Her second shot landed a few feet to the right of the green, and she calmly chipped to about 3 feet She made the putt to finish at 4-under 68 and 16 under for the tournament. It was the Australian standouts fourth career victory and first since 2016. Kim (67) shot a 32 on the back nine and birdied No. 18, but it wasnt enough to force a playoff at Travis Pointe Country Club. Moriya Jutanugarn (65) finished third at 14 under. Lee took a twostroke lead into the final round, and that was her margin over playing partner Stacy Lewis before Lewis (71) bogeyed No. 7 and 8. Kim emerged as the biggest threat to Lee when she birdied four of the first five holes on the back nine. Lewis is playing five months pregnant with her first child. Kim and Lee were briefly tied at 15 under, but then Lee made a tap-in birdie on the par-5 14th, while Kim bogeyed 15. Lee saved par on 15 despite a wayward drive into a bunker, and shed actually gone 38 consecutive holes without a bogey before making one on the par-4 17th. That, combined with Kims birdie on 18, left the two golfers tied, but Lee still had the 18th to come. Su Oh (68) and Lindy Duncan (69) finished at 13 under, and Megan Khang (67) was another stroke back. Lewis „ playing five months pregnant „ finished at 11 under along with Ariya Jutanugarn (69) and Danielle Kang (70). Lee lost this event by one stroke last year. Shanshan Feng, the 2017 winner, finished tied for 21st this time.LPGA: Volvik ChampionshipBirdie on 18 gives Lee a victory on her birthdayShe is only the second reigning womens champion to exit in the first round of the French Open a year later „ it happened to 2005 winner Anastasia Myskina, too „ and only the sixth at any major tournament in the professional era. Errani lost to 32ndseeded Alize Cornet of France 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, while Schiavone was beaten by Viktoria Kuzmova 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2). Also out of that half of the draw: No. 22 Johanna Konta of Britain, a 6-4, 6-3 loser against Yulia Putintseva. All seeded men in action won, including No. 2 Alexander Zverev and No. 4 Grigor Dimitrov, who eliminated Mohamed Safwat, the seventh lucky loserŽ to make it into the draw and the first man from Egypt to play in a Grand Slam tournament in 22 years. In 2017, ranked only 47th and 20 years old, Ostapenko became the first woman since 1979 to win her initial tourlevel trophy at a Grand Slam tournament. But the fifth-seeded Latvian has had a rough road this season: Her record is just 12-12. Kozlova, meanwhile, is 24 and arrived at Roland Garros with an even worse mark for 2018 „ 4-6. She wasnt even sure a couple of months ago whether she could participate in the French Open, because she damaged knee cartilage and resumed practicing for about 15 minutes at a time in April.TENNISFrom Page 1
