Gentry Jr. On Tuesday, a grand jury indicted Ables, 69, on charges of “rst-degree murder of a law enforcement of“cer and possession of a “rearm by a convicted felon. Afterward, Haas, state attorney for the Tenth Judicial Circuit, “led a Notice of IntentŽ to seek the death penalty. The notice informs Ables and his attorney of Haas intention to ask for Ables execution. Deputy Sheriff Gentry was responding to a dispute in Lake Placid on May 6 when, arrest reports state, Ables shot and killed him. Highlands County Sheriff Paul Blackman publicly thanked the men and women of the grand jury on Tuesday. Their decision to indict this suspect for “rst-degree murder is State seeks death penalty for AblesBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ The Highway Park Neighborhood Council members were disappointed but not surprised as the county declined their request to pay for the Duke Energy bill that is connected to the Veterans Memorial park. The electricity to the park was connected to a light pole located in the subdivisions Special Lighting District. Because of this, residents felt fees from the non-ad valorem tax should pay for the electricity; the county did not agree.

Heck, he wasnt even expecting to be nominated, but when things played themselves out Wolfe was the inaugural winner of the award. Its very unexpected,Ž Wolfe said. I was shocked in the “rst place that I was nominated and I was more shocked when I was awarded Male Coach of the Year. Its kind of like this is my fun time. Whether Im recognized or not, this is what Im going to be doing. Thats why it was unexpected. I was awarded it for doing something I love.Ž Wolfe has the perfect combination of a love for swimming and a love for helping youngsters reach their potential, which is one reason hes so highly regarded in swimming circles. I love swimming,Ž Wolfe said. I want them to have the bene“t of my knowledge on how to get faster and become a better swimmer. The high school kids, I enjoy watching them get faster and maybe breaking school records or county records.Ž While most athletic coaches are associated with one school „ the school they happen to be coaching for „ Wolfe is a de“nite exception in that regard, as he coaches kids from all three county public high schools and a bit farther out than that. Ive had kids swim who were from Hardee and Frostproof, along Swimming guru makes impactBy ALLEN MOODYSPORTS EDITORWolfe named Male Coach of the YearMichael Brackins stopped at a strip plaza near Busch Gardens to sell a bag of crack cocaine. As roller coasters roared nearby, the 33-year-old black man handed 1.5 grams to an undercover deputy posing as an addict and disappeared through a sea of rush hour traf“c. When the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Of“ce arrested Brackins on a warrant months later, they enhanced the $100 drug deal to a more serious “rst-degree felony. Deputies reported the deal took place near a small, Hispanic church „ and Florida law says Brackins threatened their safety to worship. But the address listed is the home of a pastor. His church is more than a mile away. Prosecutors did not drop the enhancement. Brackins signed a plea deal, and the judge gave him 20 months in state prison. A few blocks north, Tampa police arrested Alan Arakaki for selling oxycodone pain killers to a con“dential informant at Arakakis apartment complex near the University of South Florida. They busted the 37-year-old white man for the same crime a month later. Police reports say Arakaki was 1,000 feet from El Bethel Primitive Baptist Church. But prosecutors dropped any mention of that chapel when it came to sentencing. Court and prosecutor “les dont explain why. A judge offered Arakaki the leniency of probation, then sent him to substance abuse treatment.This is a culture warBy JOSH SALMAN, DAK LE and MICHAEL BRAGASARASOTA HERALD-TRIBUNE ONE WAR.

Sylvester, 89, formerly of Auburn and Sebring, Florida peacefully passed away on Friday, May 25, 2018 at the Maine Veterans Nursing Home in South Paris. He was born in Auburn on Jan. 10, 1929 a son of the late Ashley and Frances (Thompson) Sylvester. He grew up in the Auburn area, attended local schools and was a graduate of Edward Little High School. At the age of 11, Ralph started playing the trombone. He played in the Webster Junior High band under Russell Jack Sr. and the Edward Little High School band under the baton of Donald Gay. He also played in the dance band The Varsitters,Ž which was a 16-piece band. Ralph also played in the St. Cecilia Boys Band under the direction of Leo Grenier and at the same time also played in the Lamontagnard Snow Shoe Club Band. These two bands played concerts in the bandstand in the Lewiston City Park on Sunday nights during the summer. He enjoyed playing in the Cliff Lachance big band and the Gordon Howe big band. With all of his involvement, Ralph still had time to orchestrate his own NostalgiaŽ dance band along with his Dixieland group, The Dixie Cups.Ž Ralph served his country in the United States Air Force during the Korean con”ict and was stationed in Montgomery, Alabama at Maxwell Air Force Base. He also played in the 604th Air Force Band. After he was discharged from the military, he worked for the telephone company for 35 years. He started with the former New England Telephone Company and retired from Verizon. During his time in Florida he played music with the Highlandaires big band on Thursday nights for dancing. He was a member of the Highlands County Concert Band under the direction of Vic Anderson. He enjoyed playing with the Windjammers in Sarasota and with the 10-piece band, the Skylarks, in Sebring. Above and beyond his love for playing music, Ralph was also very passionate about hunting and gardening. He was a member of the Highlands Christian Church in Sebring, Florida and a member of the West Auburn Church in West Auburn, Maine. He will be deeply missed by many and the family wishes to acknowledge that Ralph proudly authored his own obituary. He is survived by his numerous nieces and nephews. A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 2, 2018 at the Sylvester Cemetery in Durham with prayers and music to celebrate his life.

Don and Beth also had a successful real estate business for over 20 years. She will be missed by many. God bless. SEBRING „ After reading about the recent rankings of local hospitals, it may seem easy to make a choice of hospital: Just pick the one with the higher grade. It turns out, those grades are not that simple. While they do speak to the safety of patients under the care of the hospital, both in surgery and in hospital beds, the data used to de“ne that safety varies from hospital to hospital. Its also completely voluntary. For example, Highlands Regional Medical Center did not provide Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade with information on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections or blood infections. HRMC also declined to report on hand washing procedures, how well staff worked to prevent errors or how well staff worked to track and reduce risks to patients. That didnt directly affect the grade, however. All hospitals are encouraged to voluntarily report additional safety data through the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, but are not required to do so to get a safety grade. On its website, Leapfrog states that the safety grade comes from reviewing a facilitys adherence to 27 national performance measures gleaned from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Hospital Associations Annual Survey and Health Information Technology Supplement. Grades are available at hospitalsafetygrade.org. Leapfrog Safety Grade methodology, the website states, has been peer reviewed and published in the Journal of Patient Safety. An Expert Panel analyzes data from 27 measures, and determines the weight of each based on evidence, opportunity for improvement and impact to the patient. Secondary sources help supply any missing data to give hospitals as much credit as possible toward their safety grade. Also, at this time, Leapfrog is unable to assign a grade to military or VA hospitals, critical access hospitals, specialty hospitals, childrens hospitals or outpatient surgery centers. The groups experts are studying ways to rate them in the future, the site states. Each measure is either a process/structural measureŽ or an outcome measure.Ž € Process measures show how often a hospital gives patients recommended treatment for a medical condition or procedure. Responsiveness of hospital staff,Ž for example, is how long it takes staff to respond when a patient requests help. € Structural measures represent the environment in which patients receive care. For example, Doctors order medications through a computerŽ shows whether a hospital uses a computerized system to prevent errors with prescribed medications. € Outcome measures show what happens to a patient under hospital care. Dangerous object left in patients bodyŽ measures how many times a patient undergoing surgery had a dangerous foreign object, like a sponge or tool, left in his or her body. Taken as a whole, the performance measures produce a single letter grade representing a hospitals overall ability to keep patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors. Choosing a hospital is a matter of personal preference, the site states, but AŽ hospitals generally do better at preventing errors. If a local hospital rates below an A,Ž Leapfrog suggests patients talk with their doctors at that hospital and urge them to improve safety. If all your local hospitals score poorly, Leapfrog suggests patients, doctors and hospital staff use the safety grades to start a conversation with hospital leaders and local policymakers about improving hospital safety. Measurements Leapfrog considers crucial include: € Hand washing „ A policy to ensure staff members wash before and after patient contact. € Blood infection rates „ Hospital patients given a central line (a tube inserted in the body to deliver medication) are at high risk of a dangerous blood infection. € Patient falls „ What does a hospital do to Leapfrog scores explainedBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERHow to use a hospital gradeSCORES | 6 REGISTRAR Responsible for the operation and supervision of the Admissions, Registration, and Records Office.

Fantastic!Dixie Henderson Lake Placid Garden Club honors law enforcement with plaqueThe Lake Placid Garden Club has honored all law enforcement in Highlands County with a plaque and rosebush plantings around the ”agpole on Main Avenue in Lake Placid. The ”agpole and ”ag were provided by the Elks Lodge and the Ladies of the Elks in 1995„we thank you Elks. Marsha Browning, a Garden Club member, suggested that we put a plaque next to the ”agpole honoring all law enforcement of“cers. The plaque was put into place in 2011 along with a short memorial service attended by members of the community, business owners, and Lake Placid Garden Club members. We all extend our praise and thanks and offer our continued support to all the wonderful law enforcement of“cers who continue keeping our safety their highest priority in Highlands County.The Lake Placid Garden Club Lake PlacidOpen your minds a bitIt seems to me that (the writers) are missing something in your Lesson Should Be LearnedŽ response to name calling that you have been confronted with (ref: Your View, 24 May 2018). I have been living here for about two years; and, during that time, I have experienced reading several of your letters expressing your opinionsŽ of President Donald Trump, which also, by the way, call him names, as did your great lesson. There I see him called Liar in ChiefŽ and BullyŽ. So, my question is: Is this how you practice the Christian doctrines you are also presenting in this letter? My opinion, expressed to you, is that if you want to express your own opinion (maybe I should make that plural since there seem to be two mirrored opinions in each of your letters), you have got to realize that you are not the only person who has this right of free speech. If you are going to continue calling the POTUS names, then you should expect some differing opinions; and, even some angry blow-back, punctuated by name calling, as you yourselves have presented. Again, my opinion on how this country works, the winner of the election, be it electoral college and/or popular vote, is the president of our great nation for at least four years; and, maybe even eight years, if re-elected. I did not vote for Obama, but, waited for the next election to vote against him, twice. This is what you are supposed to do. Vote them out, if you dont like them or what they are doing. It is in extremely poor taste to call them names, constantly whine over everything they do, conspire to unseat them, etc. You are not gaining any converts to your party or your opinions by this behavior. I found nothing about Obama, during his eight long years in of“ce, to change my opinion of him. You cannot seem to see any of the good that the Donald has done in the short one and a half years he has been in of“ce. So, I guess we will just have to agree to disagreeŽ and wait for the next election ... and, life goes on. I am not telling you to shut up; just to open your minds a bit, and quit the name calling yourselves.Dolores DErrico SebringYOUR VIEW Recently, National Public Radios (NPR) Morning Edition aired a story titled Is Sleeping With Your Baby as Dangerous as Doctors Say?Ž The reporter argued that American pediatricians should abandon their current safe-sleep recommendations for all babies and instead give different bed-sharing recommendations to parents based on their individual risk factors. This is a perilous approach to educating parents on safe sleep practices. Unsafe sleep practices remain the leading cause of preventable death for children under age one in Florida. Most of Floridas health educators stand behind the American Academy of Pediatrics universal recommendation that infants sleep safest when on their back, in a crib or bassinette with only a “rm mattress and tight-“tting sheet, and in the same room as their parents for the “rst year of life. Research clearly shows that many risk factors are associated with a higher incidence of sleep-related deaths. These include stomach sleeping, exposure to cigarette smoke, sleeping on or under soft surfaces or loose bedding, poor prenatal care, and prematurity or low birth weight. But eliminating these risk factors does not completely eliminate the risk. Attempting to assess a familys self-reported risk for the purpose of giving them personalized safe infant sleep instructions is problematic. Despite a practitioners best efforts to engage and get to know families, they will never know whether there are risk factors they are unaware of, which may range from hidden substance abuse to hazardous bed coverings. When parents receive instructions without knowing the full range of risks, they may lose their ability to choose the safest possible environment. Further, giving each family individualized instruction confuses caregivers and waters down the message. Having one clear, concise message for everyone is preferred so that everyone understands the expectations, risks and bene“ts and can educate others. The fact remains that bed-sharing itself is a risky behavior. The NPR story does admit that bed-sharing, even in the absence of risk factors such as soft bedding, heavy coverings or a parent under the in”uence of drugs or alcohol, raises the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) by about three-fold. A pediatrician then points out that even at three times the risk, its still a very small number of babies affected. This is a shocking assertion from a pediatrician. When we talk about percentages and numbers its easy to forget that each number represents someones child, a valuable person who is loved and deserves the opportunity to grow healthy and safe. The bottom line is that low riskŽ does not mean no riskŽ and even one baby is too many to lose to a tragedy that is completely preventable. No parent or doctor wants this on their conscience. I urge every infant caretaker to choose the safest sleep conditions every time baby sleeps: on their back, alone in a crib or bassinette free of toys, blankets and loose bedding, and in the same room as their parents for the “rst year of life.

And as costs continue to come down it will become more appealing and economical for society as a whole, without all of the government-mandated subsidies that are in place today. It is still remarkable, however, to read of Californias intent to require rooftop solar panels on most new homes in that state beginning in 2020. California will be the only state in the union with such a requirement. The California Energy Commission, which issued the mandate, estimates the panels will add almost $10,000 to a homes construction costs. The commission also claims that energy savings will total $19,000 over 30 years, but that “gure includes assumptions that may not hold for such a long time. The nation will watch with interest this test of todays practical limits of renewable energy. As you might imagine, there are critics aplenty. For starters, California has serious housing shortages as well as home prices that are already beyond the reach of many residents. Raising upfront costs of new construction will exacerbate these problems. Critics also complain that solar energy users are pushing the costs of maintaining fossil-fuel power plants onto homeowners who use conventional power. This includes lower-income households that cant afford solar upgrades. Even middle-class residents may resent subsidizing their solar neighbors, no matter how great the overall bene“ts to society. Another objection is most solar experts agreeing that rooftop panels are a far more expensive way to deliver electricity than solar farms, which take advantage of the economies of scale. This is causing many solar supporters to say California is making a major mistake, and other states will be unlikely to follow suit. Finally, we cant help but wonder what it would be like living in a neighborhood full of houses with roofs that look like shiny waf”es. Perhaps it will be normal someday, but it doesnt seem appealing. We support renewable energy, for reasons that are well documented. We look forward to continuing advances in sun and wind energy delivery systems (including battery improvements) that will make them even more attractive than they are today. Overall, we give California an A for good intentions. Grades for affordability and practicality are yet to be determined.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. The disparity between the two cases is not unusual. Lawmakers ramped up the war on drugs in the 1980s through policies like drug-free zones to curb the crack epidemic that bred violence and havoc in minority neighborhoods across the country. Times have changed. Crack is no longer the scourge it once was. Cocaine convictions in Florida are down more than half during the past decade, as violent crime rates plummeted. Now, the crisis is heroin and fentanyl. The dealers are mostly white. So are the tens of thousands of Floridians dying. But the policies used to combat the epidemic still target those with darker skin. Reporters at the Herald-Tribune spent more than a year analyzing millions of records in the state courts Offender Based Transaction System, which tracks every criminal case in Florida from arrest to appeal. The newspaper also used two databases from the Florida Department of Corrections and a fourth from the Florida Medical Examiners Commission to measure racial disparities in the war on drugs. Journalists pored through boxes of court documents and crossed the state to interview criminal defendants, justice system of“cials, historians and researchers. Among the “ndings: € Blacks represent 17 percent of Floridas population but have accounted for 46 percent of the states felony drug convictions since 2004. Those with darker skin spend two-thirds more time behind bars for drug crimes. € Laws on the books since the crack epidemic continue to bloat racial disparities. Heightened penalties for carrying drugs near churches, parks and public housing blanket minority communities, where police roam for low-level offenders. Blacks are nearly three times more likely to face a drug-free zone enhancement and account for two thirds of these convictions statewide. € Once caught in drug-free zones, black Floridians spend nearly double the time in lockup as whites who are convicted of the enhanced charges and score similar points on their sentencing guidelines, which account for the prior records of defendants and the severity of their crimes. € Legislators continue to pass laws that emphasize punishment over treatment, even as rehab is seen as the answer to substance abuse. These policies have crowded jails and prisons, while making it harder for blacks to get help for addiction. The disparities stretch to every corner of the state. Judges in Jacksonvilles 4th Judicial Circuit sentence whites convicted of drug-free zone enhancements to an average of 795 days behind bars, according to data from the Florida Department of Corrections. Blacks get two times longer. In Fort Lauderdales 17th Circuit, whites are locked up for an average of 233 days. Blacks get three times longer. In Pensacola and the 1st Circuit, whites go away for 263 days on average for drug-free zone enhancements. Blacks get four times longer. The disparity in the system is pervasive,Ž said Deborrah Brodsky, director of Florida State Universitys Project on Accountable Justice. Where you live and the color of your skin matters greatly.Ž To be sure, the opioid epidemic is not marked by the same violence that pervaded the crack trade. Some legal experts say blacks are targeted more because they deal drugs in the open, making them an easier mark for law enforcement and prosecutors. Blacks also see their sentences swell because they often have more prior arrests and longer records than comparable whites, leaving them with less leverage to negotiate down a drug-free zone enhancement. Everyone would agree we want the system to work well and be fair, and it can always be better,Ž said R.J. Larizza, state attorney for the 7th Circuit Court and president of the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association. I cant say we are going to agree on everything, but we are working with the (Florida) Legislature on these issues ƒ We are going to do our own independent review to put some statistical information together and analyze it to improve how we do business.Ž Supporters of reform see the disparities as more proof that minority neighborhoods are over-policed, over-prosecuted and over-incarcerated „ especially as the drug epidemic shifts to white suburbia. This is a culture war,Ž said Lisa Graybill, deputy legal director for the Southern Poverty Law Center. We are long past the point of thinking the war on drugs does anything to affect usage, public health or safety, so its a fair question to ask: Why are we still doing all of this?Ž This series of stories on how drug courts have a legal and ethical obligationŽ to provide equal access to treatment, regardless of race, will continue next week.

Evelyn Colon, executive director of the Highway Park Neighborhood Council, said the members were disappointed but will stay focused on what can be changed for the better in the neighborhood. We were disappointed,Ž Colon said. The next step is really two things; to change the purpose of the Highway Park Special District. If we change it from being restricted to just street lights, we can give it a different purpose,Ž Colon said. We still want the county to have all the administrative responsibilities. The only thing we want is if we can request funding for special community projects only; nothing to do with private properties, that was the problem we had with the lighting district. The other thing is that, whatever we do, we want to do along Crestmore Drive. It faces the highway (U.S. 27) and is the face of our community,Ž she said. Colon said the sidewalk project along the road has taken three years to get to the bid process. She said the business owners and all the homeowners have to agree with the sidewalks and the Americans with Disabilities Act had to be taken into consideration. Hopefully within a month or so, we will have our “rst sidewalks in,Ž she said. Colon also said that the HPNC is trying to purchase the defunct gas station near U.S. 27 south of the Veterans Memorial. The council plans on rehabbing the building and turning it into Wele Youth Farmers Market. It has submitted a proposal to the Department of Agriculture for a grant or an affordable loan such as a 75/25 percent split. The grant would require the purchase tie-in directly into the community; the HPNC feels the Wele market would do that. It is an entrepreneurial and mentorship program offered to the youth of Highway Park. We would put sidewalks around that property and make sure that the homeowners along Crestmore Drive have kept their properties up and looking nice,Ž Colon said. The lighting to the park was already wired but not activated until the council heard the countys ruling, but it will go ahead and turn the lights on at the memorial. The HPNC will be paying for the power bill until it can get the special district changed. The HPNC would like to get signage to the Veterans Memorial. Eventually, it would like to have stone but until funding comes in, nice wooden signs will be used. We were disappointed but we will move on from there,Ž Colon said. In the end it might turn out well if we can get everyone to agree. It takes so much time and patience and money.Ž For more information on Wele or to provide secure giving, visit hpng.com or call HPNC President Tiffany Green at 863-840-2995.PARKFROM PAGE 1 with Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid,Ž Wolfe said. Theyve found they need to get the bene“t from the offseason practicing that we do.Ž It isnt unusual for the Hurricanes to have kids from different high schools on their relay teams during the summer, so while Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid may be rivals during the high school swim season, they work together during the summer and build bonds that transcend their high school colors. Even during the high school season, theyll go to the swim meet and theyll talk to the swimmers from the other schools,Ž Wolfe said. Theyre friends and theyre teammates, realistically.

Its pretty interesting with the dynamic of the internet.Ž Wolfe has been coaching a number of years and has had the children of swimmers he worked with when they were younger, which is always fun for Wolfe, who believes swimming is a great family activity. I have several of my original swimmers children,Ž he said. I have one whos going to college right now, thats how long Ive been doing this off and on. Even my granddaughter, shes one of my swimmers children, so hopefully, eventually shell be swimming with us.Ž It was the family aspect that led to Wolfes love of the sport in the “rst place. I love swimming because its in my family,Ž he said. My mom and dad taught water safety and lifeguarding when I was a young child, so its always been around. My mom and dad used to teach swimming in the lake. Theyd tell me, Marvin go out and drown and let the lifeguards save you, and Id be all right.Ž Wolfe is hopeful his love of the sport will rub off on the youngsters and he said its important for them to enjoy what theyre doing, win or lose. Its always been a fun thing for me,Ž he said. Im trying to make it fun for these kids and help them get better and enjoy getting better.Ž Wolfes daughter, Megan Wolfe, has followed suit and gives swimming lessons, but Marvin has no plans to be stepping down anytime soon. As long as I have my chair, my hat, my sunglasses and a stopwatch I can keep doing this,Ž he said.WOLFEFROM PAGE 1an important step on the road toward justice for Deputy William Gentry, his family and all of us here at the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce,Ž Blackman said in a released statement. Taking the life of a law enforcement of“cer shows ultimate contempt for the rule of law.

Best Fishing Days: Today and Thursday the full moon will cause greater than average feeding activity during the midday and early morning periods. Lunar periods will become weaker daily due to the moon arriving at its furthest orbit point from earth on Saturday. The Major Fishing Period: Solar noon occurs at 1:23 p.m. today and the moon underfoot period at 2:22 p.m. and the atmospheric pressure plot peak period of the day has been two hour prior to the underfoot period, so I expect this trend to continue. A feed rating of 6 will occur today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Minor Fishing Period: The sunrise occurs today at 6:30 a.m. and the moonset at 7:25 a.m. and will produce a feed rating of 4-5 from 6-8 a.m. Prime Monthly Periods: June 1016, almost super new moon; June 26-30, weak full moon; July 10-16 ,super new moon; July 24-29, weak full moon.

GODSPEAK: Give me Ryan Blaney at Pocono. After his car burned up at Charlotte, he will top the charts this week. KENS CALL: Ill stick with the Kyle theme and say Larson, but not until Michigan in two weeks.Where does Will PowerŽ rank among all-time best racer names? GODSPEAK: It is de“nitely in the top “ve all-time, but I am forever a Dick Trickle man. KENS CALL: Itd be a better “t for a triathlete, so Im sticking with the Speed boys „ Lake and Scott. KYLE BUSCH VS. KEVIN HARVICK: Busch won the Coca-Cola 600 and Harvick “nished dead last in the race. No matter. These are the two drivers who will be feuding for the Cup championship this year. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Since there was no con”ict on the track at Charlotte, we are taking the long view and it is shaping up as a twoman “ght from here to Homestead. Both are hard-headed drivers. WINNER: Ryan Blaney REST OF TOP 5: Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: David Ragan DARK HORSE: Paul Menard DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Blaney gets his second career victory where he got his “rst career victory.Danica insists shes done. Do you believe her?Yes and ƒ maybe. Right now, she is retired, having completed her Danica DoubleTroubleŽ „ crashing out of the Daytona and Indy 500s. But lets say a couple of years from now, her post-racing career needs a jolt, and perhaps some sports-car team could use some star-power for, say, the Rolex 24, can we see that happening? Absolutely. Maybe not. But maybe. Hows that for an answer?Whos the next “ve for the Hall of Fame?Tony Stewart is a lock, while Buddy Baker and Joe Gibbs seem likely. But Bobby Labonte, Carl Edwards and Greg Bif”e will become eligible next year, so a lot of votes will be spread around.

Think againIf you think you know who will win Sundays NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway, better think again. Why? Because 11 different drivers have won races in the last 12 Pocono races. The only driver to score two wins in that time frame was Dale Earnhardt Jr., who swept both Poconos in 2014. The list includes retired Jeff Gordon, almost retired Matt Kenseth, plus “rst-time winners Chris Buescher and Ryan Blaney.2. Box-checkingKyle Busch did something Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600 no other driver in NASCARs modern era had ever done „ win at every active race track on the Cup Series. He checked the last box by winning at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Even the great Jeff Gordon could not do that, missing a win at Kentucky. The “rst one to check off all the tracks and get it all done,Ž Busch said, quickly adding, I dont want to go to any new ones.Ž3. Wheres Harvick?A total of 23 race tracks host 36 Cup races each season. Kevin Harvick has won multiple races at 11 of those tracks, including a whopping nine triumphs at Phoenix. He has two boxes to check in order to make it a clean sweep. He has never won at Kentucky, which has held only seven Cup races, or Pocono. At the 2.5-mile Pocono triangle, Harvick is 0-for-34.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comRyan Blaney climbs from his burning car at Charlotte. This Sunday he hopes to climb into Victory Lane at Pocono. [AP/AMANDA NEWMAN] 1. One-car trackCharlotte Motor Speedways Coca-Cola 600 p roved once again it is a one-car race track. Kyle Busch led 377 of 400 laps and turned this marathon into a snorefest. Charlotte has a recent history of rewarding the car and driver with the right balance. Bring on the ROVAL!2. Johnson wants winJimmie Johnson (no laps led) has gone a year without winning a Cup race. His last win was June 4, 2017 at Dover. He nabbed a “fth-place at Charlotte. It feels good, but damn I want to win,Ž Johnson said. Im tired of running “fth; Im tired of running whatever it is.Ž3. Big bang theoryMeanwhile, on the north side of the Ohio River, Danica Patrick closed out her racing career by crashing out of the Indy 500. Im not really sure what happened,Ž she said of her single-car spin in Turn 2. It just seemed to come around.Ž What seemed around, went around.„Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.com Kyle Busch tosses his son Brexton in the air as he celebrates winning the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com To Infinity and BeyondJuvenile science fiction recommendationsScience “ction is a broad term for books that have technology, space, time travel and futuristic themes.Ž This genre of books appeals to many people because those speci“c aspects can cross over into other genres. For instance, a story about a dystopian community under the rule of a dragon, saved by a boy who builds his own mechanical dragon, has elements of science “ction and fantasy. (By the way, that book really exists!) Here are some science “ction books that any kid would love. WondlaŽ series by Tony DiTerlizzi. Eva Nine lives in an underground bunker and is cared for by a robot named Muthr. She sets out on a journey to “nd others like her but she will face obstacles she never imagined. HorizonŽ trilogy by Scott Westerfeld. This book series follows a group of kids who survive a plane crash. The other 500 people who were on the plane are gone „ not necessarily dead but taken by something that lives in the jungle surrounding them. Everytime they think theyve made itŽ to safety they are proven wrong. MissingŽ series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. Jonah, Chip and Katherine “nd out theyre adopted. That seems pretty normal, but soon they “nd themselves in a mystery that involves time travel, the FBI and a smuggling operation. They are caught between two opposing forces and their choices will make all the difference. A Wrinkle in Time quintet by Madeline LEngle. Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin OKeefe try to save the world from evil in the “rst book of this series. In a later book, twins Sandy and Dennys Murry, take up the struggle. Polly OKeefe, the eldest child of Meg and Calvin, is featured in later book along with several characters from the other novels. TripodsŽ trilogy by John Christopher. In this mysterious story, three gigantic triple-legged things fall out of the sky. At “rst they seem harmlessalmost benevolent, then they impose their iron grip. Can Will Parker and his friends save the world from these terrifying tripods? Killer SpeciesŽ series by Michael Spradlin. Dr. Catalyst, a fanatical environmentalist, decides he has the perfect solution to combat the invasive species devastating Florida ecosystems „ creating his own genetically modi“ed super predators. Can Emmett and his family save the state? George seriesŽ by Lucy and Stephen Hawking. Georges teacher develops an unusual interest in his neighbors supercomputer. Cosmos can open doorways to space and other planets, which is so cool. But is it possible someone would want to use that power for evil? Some people prefer end-of-times sci-“, some like the science of time travel and space exploration, and some just like to envision amazing technological advances. Whether you enjoy all types of science “ction or only speci“c sub-genres, come to your local library today to discover books you will love.

Some needed sidewalkers or leaders while the more experienced riders only used a spotter which allowed them to guide the horse on their own. There were “ve different classes or riders. Heartland Horses recruited three professionals to judge the event. The judges criteria was based on scoring separate elements of the trail class which included executing the prescribed sequence at each obstacle and overall scores for rider position, correct use of aids (voice/hands/legs), and effective communication with their horse. Each component was scored separately and the overall total determined class ranking. The judges were Victor McNeil, of Avon Park, who is a world champion and professional horse trainer and riding instructor; Bryce Burnett, of Zolfo Springs, who is a professional ferrier and horse trainer, rodeo star and riding instructor; and Sam Fraer, of Avon Park, who has been riding horses for six years and is also an emergency room nurse at Florida Hospital. Fraer also gave the blessing over the event during the opening ceremony. Trophies were presented to the riders in a ceremony after competition at Ridge Area Arcs main campus. Dinner was also served. In Class 1, the winners were Dasan Jordon, second; and Bethany Biller, “rst. In Class 2, Bobby Paradise won “rst; Nicole Lewis, second; and Ilana Levy, third. In Class 3, Brianna Davis won “rst; Annie Horn, second; C.J. Chandler, third; Shamiya Parchment, fourth; and Michael Sweet, “fth.

Up next was Christine Scholtus. She had spent years in the mental health industry where she discovered the amazing effect music has on those who suffer with mental illness. Songs she performed were Table In The Wilderness,Ž an ode to a friend called, She FliesŽ and a song she had “nished writing the day of the show called, Blew Away.Ž Avon Parks Scott Kromel, a confessed lover of Willie Nelson, performed songs with a Christian message. Among those songs were How Much Do You KnowŽ and A Spirit of Grace.Ž He also shared an entertaining story that was helped along by the timely passing of a train just outside. Recently written songs seemed to be something of a theme as Kromel, too, performed a piece of music he had written the day before. Ray Cerbone, an Americana and blues artist from Lake Placid, closed out the night with his special brand of storytelling. He opened his set with a song dedicated to one of his heros, the late Guy Clarke. The song was titled, Fondest Memory Of All.Ž He followed that up with You Dont Know Nothing About The BluesŽ and his closer, Happy Blues.Ž According to Fred Levitt, curator of The Peter Powell Museum of Art, based on this years success, the Music In The Museum series will continue next season. The Peter Powell Roberts Museum of Art is located at 310 W Main St. Hours of operation are: 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The News Wire Wednesday, May 30, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Tesla in Autopilot mode crashes into California police carSee page 8 AP PHOTOAn Israeli tank drives along the border with the Gaza strip, on the Israel-Gaza Border, Tuesday, May 29, 2018. Palestinian mili tants in the Gaza Strip red at least 50 rockets and mortars into southern Israel on Tuesday, the largest barrage since the 2014 war between Isra el and Hamas.JERUSALEM „ Palestinian militants bombarded southern Israel with dozens of rockets and mortar shells Tuesday, while Israeli warplanes struck targets throughout the Gaza Strip in the largest ”are-up of violence between the sides since a 2014 war. The Israeli military said most of the projectiles were intercepted, but three soldiers were wounded, raising the chances of further Israeli retaliation. One mortar shell landed near a kindergarten shortly before it opened. The sudden burst of violence, which stretched past midnight with no signs of slowing, follows weeks of mass Palestinian protests along the Gaza border with Israel. Over 110 Palestinians, many of them unarmed protesters, have been killed by Israeli “re in that time. Israel says it holds Gazas Hamas rulers responsible for the bloodshed. Israel will exact a heavy price from those who seek to harm it, and we see Hamas as responsible for preventing such attacks,Ž Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies and have fought three wars since the Islamic group seized control of Gaza in 2007. The last war in 2014 was especially devastating, with over 2,000 Palestinians killed, including hundreds of civilians, and widespread damage in”icted on Gazas infrastructure in 50 days of “ghting. Seventy-two people were killed on the Israeli side. Tuesdays violence bore a striking resemblance to the run-up to past wars. In the early morning, Palestinian militants “red over two dozen mortar rounds into southern Israel, including the shell that landed near the kindergarten. The Israeli military con“rmed over 60 airstrikes throughout Gaza, including an un“nished tunnel near the southern city of Rafah that crossed under the border into Egypt and from there into Israeli territory. It said other targets included sheds of drones,Ž a rocket manufacturing workshop, naval weaponry, military and training facilities and a munitions manufacturing site. No Palestinian casualties were reported.Gaza militants strike Israel, drawing Israeli retaliationBy JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump and Democratic critics traded outraged, sometimes plainly false accusations about immigration Tuesday as the debate over lostŽ children and the practice of separating families caught crossing the border illegally reached a new boiling point. False charges ”ew on both sides. The White House wrongly blamed Democrats for forcing his administration to separate children from parents. Liberal activists tried to highlight the issue by tweeting photos of young people in steel cages that actually were taken during the Obama administration. Others seized on reports the government had lostŽ more than 1,000 children, though that wasnt quite the case. It all comes just in time for the midterm elections as Republicans and Democrats try to rally core voters by pointing “ngers at one another. Trump won the presidency promising to build a wall along the southern border and end illegal immigration, and the White House believes stressing the same issues will drive voters to the polls and help the GOP hang on to their majorities in the Senate and House. The White House is really beating the immigration drum in the lead-up to the midterm elections as a rallying cry and as a way of mobilizing voter support for Trump and the candidates that he chooses,Ž said Doris Meissner, a senior fellow at the non-partisan Migration Policy Institute and former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clinton administration. It does seem to provoke a ratcheting up across the board.Ž Indeed, the situation grew so hostile Trump, critics trade angry immigration chargesBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSSEOUL, South Korea „ U.S. President Donald Trump con“rmed Tuesday that a top North Korean of“cial is headed to New York for talks on an upcoming summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as diplomatic efforts also accelerated in Asia. Trump said in a tweet that Kim Yong Chol was traveling to New York as part of ongoing meetings between the two countries to arrange the summit on the future of North Koreas nuclear weapons. South Korean media earlier reported that Kim Yong Chols name was on the passenger list for a “ght Wednesday from Beijing to New York. Kim was seen in the Beijing airport on Tuesday by Associated Press Television. Trump tweeted: We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!Ž Kim Yong Chol is a former military intelligence chief and now a vice chairman of the North Korean ruling partys central committee. WASHINGTON „ In language that echoed that of his accusers and critics, President Donald Trump alleged on Twitter that special counsel Robert Muellers investigative team was MEDDLINGŽ in the upcoming midterm elections and blamed Democrats for Collusion.Ž The tweet Tuesday was the latest example of the president co-opting the terminology of his accusers in an effort to tarnish political enemies. It came as Mueller investigates allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether any Trump campaign aides colluded with the Kremlin to tip the outcome in the Republican candidates favor. So far, four Trump associates have been charged in Muellers investigation, and three „ including former White BALTIMORE „ The body of the Maryland National Guardsman who was swept away in Ellicott Citys ”oods Sunday was found in the Patapsco River on Tuesday, according to Howard County Police. The body of Sgt. Eddison A. Hermond, 39, was found by searchers in the Patapsco River just across the Baltimore County line, Howard County Police posted on Twitter. Hermond was washed away in ”oodwaters after trying to rescue Kate Bowman, a local shop owner, Bowman told The Baltimore Sun. Before his body was found Tuesday, the Severn man, a member of the Maryland National Guard, was last seen Sunday at 5:20 p.m. near La Palapa restaurant on Main Street, Howard County police said. Maryland National Guard Col. Charles Kohler said Hermond joined the Maryland Army National Guard in 2009 and was assigned to Camp Fretterd in Reisterstown. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1996 and served more than a decade on active duty. Randy Marriner, who owns the Victoria Restaurant Group, said Hermond was one of the original employees of Victoria Gastro Pub when the Columbia restaurant opened 11 years ago. He said Hermond worked in his restaurants when he wasnt on active duty, and worked his way up from server to bartender to manager. Marriners group also includes Manor Hill Tavern in Ellicott City. Hermond was a manager at Manor Hill Tavern until last fall, Marriner said. He said Hermond was family.Ž Its just really, really sad and unnecessary,Ž Marriner said. In the midst of panic and we make split-second decision that sometimes may not „ while well-intended „ may not have been the best decisions.ŽSenior NKorean official heads to NY to plan for Trump summitTrump borrows language of accusers, critics in Mueller tweetSearchers find body of National Guardsman who went missing in Md. floodBy KIM TONG-HYUNGASSOCIATED PRESS By ERIC TUCKERASSOCIATED PRESSBy SARAH MEEHANTHE BALTIMORE SUN TRUMP | 8 SUMMIT | 8 CHARGES | 8 AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump applauds during a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, Monday.

Researchers surveyed a small sample of neighborhoods and from that estimated that up to 4,600 more deaths than usual occurred, far more than earlier studies have suggested. At least one independent expert questioned the methods and the number in the new study. This estimate could be off by thousands. Easily,Ž Donald Berry, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, told The Associated Press in an email. The research was published online in the New England Journal of Medicine. Its the latest study to analyze how many people died during or after the Category 4 storm that hit the U.S. territory in September 2017, causing more than an estimated $100 billion in damage. Researchers led by Harvard University called the of“cial toll of 64 deaths a substantial underestimate.Ž Maria caused the longest blackout in U.S. history, leaving the entire island of 3.3 million people without power, including those in hospitals and nursing homes who relied on respirators. Researchers surveyed 3,299 households earlier this year and used the “ndings to extrapolate to the whole island. They found that 31 percent reported disruptions in medical services, and more than 14 percent said they were unable to access medications. They calculated 4,645 more people died in the three months after Maria compared with the same period in 2016. One of the researchers, Rafael Irizarry of Harvard University, told the AP that the estimate is uncertain because of its limited size, but that the study still provides valuable information, including how some people died.Study estimates higher death toll in Puerto Rico post-MariaBy DANICA COTOASSOCIATED PRESS MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDCanada to buy major pipeline to ensure it gets builtTORONTO (AP) „ Canadas federal government said Tuesday it is buying a controversial pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to the Paci“c Coast to ensure it gets built. Prime Minister Justin Trudeaus government plans to spend $4.5 billion Canadian (US$3.4 billion) to purchase Kinder Morgans Trans Mountain pipeline. The pipeline expansion would triple the capacity of an existing line to ship oil extracted from the oil sands in Alberta across the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. It would end at a terminal outside Vancouver, resulting in a seven-fold increase in the number of tankers in the shared waters between Canada and Washington state. It must be built and it will be built,Ž Finance Minister Bill Morneau said.Health officials cautiously optimistic on Ebola responseGENEVA (AP) „ The World Health Organization said Tuesday it is cautiously optimisticŽ about efforts to curb the spread of Ebola in an urban area in Congo, although the lethal virus is still reported in at least two remote areas. There have been 35 con“rmed cases, including 12 deaths. The U.N. health agency and partners have vaccinated more than 400 people with an experimental Ebola vaccine, the “rst time it has been used in an emerging outbreak. WHO emergencies chief Peter Salama told reporters that the response has gone quite smoothly.ŽRussian journalist shot and killed in Ukrainian capitalMOSCOW (AP) „ A Russian journalist was shot and killed in the Ukrainian capital Tuesday, and the national police said he apparently was targeted because of his work.

The Sun /Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps hard-line views on trade, a staple of his message long before he entered politics, are beginning to collide with the cold realities of global geopolitics. Trade talks on China and the North American Free Trade Agreement have hit stumbling blocks, posing a challenge for a president who vowed to make trade deals more equitable for the United States during his 2016 campaign and who famously tweeted that trade wars are easy to win.Ž Trumps trade agenda „ at least lately „ has not been so easy. Trumps administration announced plans Tuesday to slap $50 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese technology while taking steps to impose new investment restrictions and export controls, aimed at pushing China to remove trade barriers that make it dif“cult for U.S. companies to do business in China. The new action came after the administration said earlier this month that it had suspended plans to impose $150 billion in tariffs for now and the president tweeted last week that a different structureŽ would be needed in the trade talks involving the worlds two largest economies. The president has bemoaned the massive U.S. trade de“cit with China „ $337 billion last year „ as evidence that Beijing has been complicit in abusive trading practices and outsmarted his predecessors. Pointing to a pause in the trade dispute, the administration had pointed to Chinas plans to signi“cantly increaseŽ its purchases of U.S. goods and services and make meaningful increasesŽ in U.S. exports of agriculture and energy products. Financial markets, wary of a calamitous trade war, were relieved. But Beijing did not agree to any speci“c dollar amounts, despite the Trump administrations push to lower the U.S. trade de“cit by at least $200 billion. And doubts remain about whether China will address allegations the Chinese engage in cybertheft of trade secrets, force U.S. companies to transfer some of their technology in exchange for market access or back away from its China 2025 plan to dominate emerging technologies. Trumps team, meanwhile, has hit an impasse with Canada and Mexico on negotiations over NAFTA. The president has sought to overhaul NAFTA as a way of returning automobile production to the U.S. and reduce Americas trade de“cit with Mexico. But the talks are running into the complications of Mexican elections in July and the U.S. midterm elections in November along with a dispute over rules for car production. Seeking leverage, Trumps administration launched an investigation into whether tariffs might be necessary on car imports, based on national security concerns. The potential penalties could affect Mexico, Canada, Japan and the European Union. The administration used a similar Commerce Department probe to impose tariffs in March on imported steel and aluminum. But auto manufacturers said they didnt push for the auto investigation, and members of Congress questioned the validity of the probe. The Honda Accord is not a threat to our national security,Ž said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, hours after joining Trump for a bill signing at the White House. But he added that taxing it with trade tariffs is a threat to the economic security of millions of hard-working American families.Not so easy: Trumps trade agenda hits stumbling blocksBy KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this May 16 photo, President Donald Trump listens to a question in the Oval Oce of the White House in Washington. BIRMINGHAM, Ala. „ The remnants of Alberto doused the Deep South with waves of rain Tuesday as the vast, soggy system pushed northward toward the Tennessee Valley. Forecasters said the subtropical depression swirling near Birmingham could dump as much as 6 inches of rain on central Alabama. Heavy downpours reduced visibility for commuters, while toppled trees blocked roads south of the city. The U.S. Golf Association canceled a practice round of the U.S. Womens Open Championship, being played at Shoal Creek, because of the weather. Alabama Power Co. said about 20,000 homes and businesses were without electricity Tuesday, most in the Birmingham area. In south Alabama near the Florida line, the city of Andalusia reopened its roads after ordering residents to stay off streets overnight because of ”ash ”ooding and downed trees and power lines. In Cuba, ”ooding damaged an oil re“nery in central Cuba and caused crude oil to spill into Cienfuegos Bay as the remnants of Alberto continued to drench the island in heavy rain. State-owned TV showed authorities using barriers Tuesday to try to contain the spill from the Cienfuegos re“nery about 150 miles southeast of Havana. As the “rst named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, Subtropical Storm Alberto lumbered ashore Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle and then weakened overnight to a depression. Forecasters said rain could still kill people caught in ”ash ”oods in the coming hours or days in Alabama and large areas of Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. In North Carolina, a television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday while covering the weather, when a tree became uprooted from rain-soaked ground and toppled onto their SUV, authorities said. Two journalists working to keep the public informed about this storm have tragically lost their lives, and we mourn with their families, friends and colleagues,Ž North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a statement. North Carolina needs to take Alberto seriously. I urge everyone to keep a close eye on forecasts, warnings and road conditions, especially in western North Carolina where even heavier rain is predicted.Ž The National Weather Service said a weak tornado brie”y touched down Monday in central South Carolina as an outer band from Alberto moved through. A ”ood watch is in effect through Wednesday morning for the northwestern part of the state because of the storm. Between 2 and 6 inches of rain could soak Alabama and western Georgia on Tuesday, and isolated deluges of 12 inches also are possible as the system heads into the Tennessee Valley on its way to the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. Alberto dumped between 2 and 5 inches of rain over parts of the Florida Panhandle, according to the National Weather Service. Doublered ”ags along the white sandy beaches kept most people out of the rough waters, and some low-lying areas experienced minor ”ooding, of“cials said. Most of the issues were having right now are downed trees and downed limbs,Ž Walton County spokesman Louis Svehla told the Northwest Florida Daily News. Our beaches did good. There was not a lot of erosion. The surge was not that large.ŽSouth doused with heavy rains from remnants of AlbertoBy JAY REEVESASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK „ Stocks in the U.S. and Europe sank Tuesday following political turmoil in Italy, which stoked fears of instability in the euro bloc. Investors sold stocks and prices for U.S. government bonds surged as investors shifted money into lower-risk investments. Bond yields dropped, and with them, interest rates on mortgages and other kinds of loans. Banks plunged as Wall Street expected they would earn thinner pro“ts. Major exporters like technology and industrial companies and big drug and medical device makers also skidded. Those companies depend on strong sales outside the U.S. Investors dumped Italian government bonds, driving borrowing costs sharply higher for that country and rekindling fears of more “nancial strain for Europes third-largest economy. They bought German and British government bonds instead, which are seen as more stable. The political upheaval in Italy is likely to lead to new elections in the next few months, and investors are interpreting the new vote as a referendum and that Italy could move closer to abandoning the currency if populist parties win the election. Its not clear if that would happen, but if it did, it would have major implications for the European “nancial system and its economy. Eurozone membership will be at the forefront of the next election,Ž said Alicia Levine, the head of global investment strategy at BNY Mellon Investment Management. Should Italy leave the eurozone, its clearly bad for European assets and its bad for the European banking system.Ž New jitters about the stability of the euro sent the currencys value against the dollar to its lowest level in almost a year. The dollar rose to 108.24 yen from 109.37 yen. The euro sank to $1.1531, its lowest since July, from $1.1669. The S&P 500 index sank 31.47 points, or 1.2 percent, to 2,689.86. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 391.64 points, or 1.6 percent, to 24,361.45. It was down as much as 505 earlier. The Russell 2000 index fell far less than the Dow average, giving up 3.28 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,623.65. The Nasdaq composite fell 37.26 points, or 0.5 percent, to 7,396.59.Italian turmoil hits global markets, sending stocks plungingBy MARLEY JAYAP MARKETS WRITERNEW YORK „ ABC canceled its hit reboot of RoseanneŽ on Tuesday following star Roseanne Barrs racist tweet that referred to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes.Ž ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said the comment is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.Ž Barr had apologized and deleted her Monday-night tweet, calling it a bad joke,Ž but the damage had already been done. Barr was also dumped by her talent agency, ICM Partners. The revival of the comedy was a surprise smash for ABC, owned by the Walt Disney Co., and was counted on to lead the networks fortunes next season. Its “rst new episode in March was seen by more than 25 million people, with delayed viewing counted in, numbers that are increasingly rare in network television. ABC expected advertisers to pay millions of dollars for the chance to be seen during commercial breaks on televisions most popular comedy after The Big Bang Theory.Ž And it was all killed in a 53-character tweet. One of the few network shows about a working-class family, RoseanneŽ attracted considerable attention upon its return when Barrs character supported President Donald Trump. That made the show popular with conservative viewers, and Trump himself suggested the characters backing had a lot to do with the shows success. Barr herself has a history of diving into political conspiracy theories on her Twitter feed, and she ended her Memorial Day weekend with a series of statements. She criticized Democratic “nancier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was Chelsea Soros Clinton,Ž implying she was married to a nephew of Soros. Clinton herself corrected Barr online. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted two of Barrs statements about Soros, although not the remark about Jarrett. Jarrett, who is black, was brought up in response to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory. Barr tweeted: muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.Ž She later tweeted an apology to Jarrett. Forgive me,Ž she wrote. My joke was in bad taste.ŽABC cancels Roseanne following stars racist tweetBy DAVID BAUDERAP MEDIA WRITER AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 8 photo, Roseanne Barr participates in the RoseanneŽ panel during the Disney/ABC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California. MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRYLawyer: Weinstein had long relationship with rape accuserNEW YORK (AP) „ The woman who has accused Harvey Weinstein of rape in his criminal case was in a decade-long relationship with him that continued after the alleged attack in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013, a lawyer for the “lm producer said Tuesday. Attorney Benjamin Brafman made the remark after meeting behind closed doors with prosecutors and a New York judge Tuesday over defense concerns about whether Weinstein can get a fair trial. The criminal case revolves around two women, only one of whom, the former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her story of being forced to perform oral sex on Weinstein at his of“ce in 2004. Prosecutors havent identi“ed the second accuser, who told investigators Weinstein con“ned her in a hotel room and raped her. Brafman said he also wouldnt identify the woman by name, but speaking to reporters outside a Manhattan courthouse, said she was someone with whom he has had a 10-year consensual, sexual relationship, both before the alleged incident and after the alleged incident.ŽMissouri Gov. Greitens to resign amid scandals investigationJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) „ Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a sometimes brash outsider whose unconventional resume as a Rhodes Scholar and Navy SEAL of“cer made him a rising star in Republican politics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday after a scandal involving an affair with his former hairdresser led to a broader investigation by prosecutors and state legislators. The 44-year-old governor made the announcement nearly 17 months after taking the oath as Missouris chief executive with a pledge to root out corrupt career politicians.Ž The investigations of him widened to include questions about whether he had violated the law in “nancing the campaign. Greitens said his resignation would take effect Friday.Bayer selling $9B in ag business ahead of Monsanto mergerWASHINGTON (AP) „ German pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG has agreed to the U.S. governments demand that it sell about $9 billion in agriculture businesses as condition for acquiring Monsanto Co., a U.S. seed and weed-killer maker. Antitrust regulators at the Justice Department say its the biggest divestiture ever required for a merger. The regulators say they directed Bayer to divest assets such as vegetable oils, seeds and seed treatments to ensure fair competition in the market after the massive agriculture business deal goes through. The assets will be sold to BASF, a German chemical company.

The Sun /Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Yesterdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a man in my late 50s. I now am told to sleep on my right side and not my left side, because it's better for the heart. However, my sinuses seem to open up and it's easier to breathe lying on my left side. What, if anything, will happen if I sleep on my left side? Can it damage the heart permanently or lead to an early death? „ M.N. ANSWER: Most people can sleep in whatever position they nd comfortable without any problem. However, there are a few instances in which sleeping on the left side may potentially cause problems. One is in people with untreated obstructive sleep apnea, in which several studies have shown that sleeping on the left side leads to slightly more breathing problems than sleeping on the right. However, in people who are treated, that should not be a problem. Pregnant women should sleep on the side. Although women have often been recommended to sleep on their left side, either side is ne for the baby. Left-sided sleeping may reduce swelling in the feet. People with known severe congestive heart failure or coronary artery disease and who habitually sleep on the left side have a small increase in death compared with back sleepers or right-side sleepers. DEAR DR. ROACH: Does sunlight make chickenpox blisters appear more quickly? „ S.V.A. ANSWER: I have heard that, too, but can't nd any evidence that it's true. The rash of chickenpox certainly will come, even in darkness. Sunlight can worsen scarring from chickenpox, and the aected skin is more susceptible to burning, so those with chickenpox rash should be kept out of the sun. Chickenpox is also very contagious; restrict contact with anyone who hasn't had it or the vaccine. DEAR DR. ROACH: A few years ago, Johns Hopkins produced an article stating that possibly being hard of hearing and doing nothing about it could lead to Alzheimer's disease. Is that study still valid? „ S.S. ANSWER: It's been almost 30 years since a link between hearing loss and dementia was rst published, and recent research has conrmed this link. It now seems clear that hearing loss increases the rate of decline in brain function by 30 to 40 percent, independent of other risk factors. Put another way, people with mild hearing loss had double the risk of dementia in 10 years; those with moderate hearing loss, triple the risk; those with severe hearing loss had ve times the risk of dementia compared with people of normal hearing and the same age. The brains of people with hearing loss are more likely to atrophy as well. Of course, not everybody with hearing loss develops dementia, and people with normal hearing can. There is some, but not conclusive, evidence that hearing aids protect the brain from dementia in people with hearing loss. However, it is clear hearing aids can improve social functioning, well-being and some measures of memory. Despite this evidence, many older people with hearing loss do not get it treated.

I recently found out that for the last two years, he has been having an aair, and his mistress is now three months pregnant. When I confronted him about the situation, he claimed he doesn't know what to do. I have told him I'm willing to work things out and be supportive of the child, but the aair has to stop. The problem is, he's having a hard time letting go. Please give me some advice. „ Lost In Love In Houston DEAR LOST: Insist that you and your husband talk with a licensed marriage and family therapist to see if you can get your marriage back on track. Texas, thank the Lord, is a community property state, so it's important that you understand what that will mean to you and your children nancially should a divorce become necessary. DEAR ABBY: I'm a 53-year-old man, twice divorced, raising a 16-yearold son as a single parent. I have been dating a woman with the same history, but her children are grown. Both of us are alcoholics. Recently, she has experienced the deaths of a sibling and her ex-husband. Now she feels I don't give her enough attention. How can I convince her that I love her more than ever, but my free time needs to go to my son? „ She Wants More In Ohio DEAR SHE WANTS: I understand your drinking buddy wants more, but your rst responsibility must be to your teenaged son. You would be a better father if you were sober. Alcoholics Anonymous can help you achieve sobriety if you reach out to them. You can nd a meeting online at aa.org. Then, be a "best friend" to your lady by telling her she could nd the support and companionship she's desperate to experience by attending meetings at AA herself. Dear Readers: Whenever you frost a twoor three-layer cake, use SKEWERS to hold the layers down so that the stacks stay in place and don't become lopsided. Wait about 30 minutes afterward and remove the skewers, then smooth frosting over the areas where the skewers had been. Your cakes will always look nice this way. FYI: To make a quick and easy frosting, mix together powdered sugar, cherry juice (or your favorite juice) and a drop of vanilla. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: With six children in the house, you can imagine how much cereal we go through. We used to have six or seven open boxes of cereal in the pantry. Now, I allow the children to open only three boxes at a time. The unopened ones are stored upside-down, so the children know they can't open them until they nish the ones that are already open. „ Karen F., Cornelius, Ore.Sleeping on the left side may potentially cause problems Man must choose between wife, pregnant mistress Sticking skewers in a cakeHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 6 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Wednesday, May 30, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Social grace is at least as much about knowing what to say as it is about leaving room for others to be themselves. Youll nail this and enjoy the spontaneous trajectory things take because of it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When it comes to making others happy, no striving or straining will be necessary. Do whats natural, and then rest. Working too hard to please people will only make you a prisoner, trapped in the bars of needing their approval. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Its the same on the Wheel of FortuneŽ board as it is in life. The more turned letters you have, the easier it is to ll in the blanks. Ask for more clues and the next correct action will be obvious. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youll be connecting with those you havent seen in a while. You might feel like you cant get to the hanging out part until you play catch-up, but if you only have limited time, go for the hanging out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its not the big events that determine what a relationship is, not really. Its the forgettable Wednesdays that are made somehow unforgettable by the unique laughter and love you share with each other. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The deep conversation between I and me will not lead anywhere productive, rather its a dialogue that tends to corkscrew down to a basement of moods. For a lift, focus your energy on others instead. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Theres not a rightŽ moment for things to happen, just a moment in which things do happen because 1) they have built up to a place in which they must, or 2) you follow the impulse to make them happen. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you choose something that, it turns out, you dont like so much after all, do not stick with it out of a loyalty, fear or a sense of challenge. It wont serve anyone in the long run, least of all you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Its an excellent habit youve developed „ not oering up information unless youre pretty sure. This works toward building your reputation. People will trust what you say because you say what you know to be true. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Clicking with someones sense of humor is nothing to take for granted. Humor requires a match of so many factors that its quite rare for people to make each other laugh on a regular basis. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Meetings will be far more interesting when you have a stake in what goes down. Denitely prepare yourself with questions and relevant information about your side of things. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you show up, you aim to do so with at least as much enthusiasm as you had back when you accepted the invitation. Youll keep this in mind before accepting new invitations today. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (May 30). You long ago realized that youre the one who gives your life meaning and the lengths youll go to do that will make this a magical year indeed. Youll make a courageous move before June is over that sets the tone for the year. Business favors you in July and August. New friends being joy and fun to 2019. Leo and Virgo adore you.

MILAN (AP) „ Of“cials at the Pompeii archaeological site have announced a dramatic new discovery, the skeleton of a man crushed by an enormous stone while trying to ”ee the explosion of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Pompeii of“cials on Tuesday released a photograph showing the skeleton protruding from beneath a large block of stone that may have been a door jamb that had been violently thrown by the volcanic cloud.Ž The victim, who was over 30, had his thorax crushed. Archaeologists have not found the victims head. Of“cials said the man suffered an infection of the tibia, which may have caused walking dif“culties, impeding his escape. The archaeological sites general director, Massimo Osanna, called it an exceptional “nd,Ž that contributes to a better picture of the history and civilization of the age.ŽPompeii: New find shows man crushed trying to flee eruption AP PHOTOThe legs of a skeleton emerge from the ground beneath a large rock believed to have crushed the victims bust during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, which destroyed the ancient town of Pompeii, at Pompeiis archeological site, near Naples, on Tuesday. over the holiday weekend that the presidents eldest daughter, White House adviser Ivanka Trump, came under “re for tweeting a photo of herself and her youngest son in their pajamas Sunday morning. Focus on what is before you, on what you can control and ignore the trolls!Ž she later wrote. During a White House conference call on Tuesday, senior adviser Stephen Miller contended the the current immigration and border crisisŽ is the exclusive product of loopholes in federal immigration law that Democrats refuse to close.Ž That was after Trump lit up social media over the weekend by falsely claiming there was a horrible lawŽ that separates children from their parents after they cross the border illegally. He had said previously that we have to break up familiesŽ at the border because the Democrats gave us that law.Ž But theres no law mandating that parents must be separated from their children, and its not a policy Democrats have pushed or can change alone as the minority in Congress. The tactics increased use is being driven by Trumps own administration, which recently announced a new zero-tolerance policyŽ in which it will press criminal charges against all people crossing the border illegally, even if they have few or no previous offenses. More children are expected to be separated from their parents as a result. A Customs and Border Protection of“cial told lawmakers last week that 658 children had been separated from their parents at the border from May 6 to May 19 as the parents face charges. Thats in addition to hundreds more who were estimated to have been removed from their parents since October. The practice has drawn condemnation from Trump critics, who have long accused him of supporting inhumane policies in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. He actually called the practice horrible. If he thinks its so horrible then he ought to just end it and not make the children a negotiating tool,Ž said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Unions Immigrants Rights Project. Michelle Brane, director of the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Womens Refugee Commission, said in a statement: Family separation is NOT required by any law, this is a Trump administration policy clearly designed to punish parents, who are just trying to get their children to safety.Ž But Trump foes made their own missteps. Over the weekend, some critics of the policy tweeted photos of young-looking immigrants at the U.S.Mexico border in steel cages and blamed the Trump administration for separating immigrant children from their parents. The problem: The photos were taken by The Associated Press in 2014, when Barack Obama was in of“ce, and the photo captions reference children who crossed the border as unaccompanied minors. How or why the story resurfaced on social media four years after it was published was unclear. But Trump seized on the error. Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obamas term showing children from the Border in steel cages. They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but back“res,Ž Trump tweeted Tuesday. Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country ... Bipartisan Bill!Ž Its unclear what Bipartisan Bill!Ž Trump was referring to. Congress is heading toward an immigration showdown in the House, as Republican moderates force a June vote on legislation to protect young DreamerŽ immigrants and beef up border security. GOP leaders are trying to stop the bill, which has robust support from Democrats and some Republicans. Theyre worried any legislation that smacks of amnestyŽ for immigrants in the U.S. illegally would dampen conservative enthusiasm ahead of the midterms. Instead, House Speaker Paul Ryan and his leadership team are trying to put together an alternative approach that most Republicans would support. But “nding common ground remains dif“cult. Trump so far has not engaged in the Capitol Hill debate, even as he repeatedly insists Congress must act. Also making the rounds on social media over the holiday weekend: Allegations that children placed in custody have been lostŽ by federal authorities, which of“cials say isnt the case. The allegation, which sparked the hashtag WhereAreOurChildren,Ž grew out of testimony in April by a federal of“cial that the government had lost track of nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minor children it placed with adult sponsors in the U.S. An of“cial from the Health and Human Services Department told a congressional hearing last month that his department placed follow-up phone calls from October to December to U.S. households that were sponsoring minors who crossed the border without their parents. They reached 86 percent of the children or sponsors, but the department could not verify the whereabouts of 1,475. In some cases, sponsors simply didnt respond to the follow-up phone call, not surprising because many are themselves in the U.S. illegally and reluctant to speak to authorities. If you call a friend and they dont answer the phone, you dont assume that theyve been kidnapped,Ž Health and Human Services Steven Wagner said. Of“cials also Tuesday they are planning more thorough screening of both minor children and their sponsors, including a “ngerprint background check of every sponsor.CHARGESFROM PAGE 1 He would be the highestlevel North Korean of“cial to travel to the United States since 2000, when late National Defense Commission First Vice Chairman Jo Myong Rok visited Washington, South Koreas Uni“cation Ministry said. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has traveled to Pyongyang, North Koreas capital, twice in recent weeks for meetings with Kim Jong Un, after which he said there was a shared understandingŽ between the two sides about what they hope to achieve in the summit. It remained unclear whom Kim Yong Chol will meet in the United States. Meanwhile, a team of American diplomats involved in preparatory discussions was seen leaving a Seoul hotel on Tuesday, but it was unclear whether they went to Panmunjom, a village that straddles the border inside the Demilitarized Zone, to continue talks with their North Korean counterparts following their “rst meeting on Sunday. The U.S. of“cials are led by Sung Kim, the U.S. ambassador to Manila, who formerly was the U.S. ambassador to Seoul and a top negotiator with North Ko rea in past nuclear talks. The U.S.-led United Nations Command canceled a press tour of Panmunjom scheduled for Wednesday, saying the decision was related to security preparations to accommodate the U.S.-North Korea talks there. There will be no similar media events at the village until after June 12, the possible date of the summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un, according to the command. South Korean media also reported that a North Korean delegation arrived in Singapore on Monday night for likely summit preparations with U.S. of“cials. Seoul did not con“rm reports that the North Korean of“cials were headed by Kim Chang Son, Kim Jong Uns close associate, and that his American counterpart would likely be White House deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin. South Koreas Foreign Ministry said Washington and Pyongyang were engaging in workinglevelŽ talks to arrange the possible summit, but said it couldnt con“rm speci“cs. Ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-duk also did not say whether Seoul knew of any U.S. plans regarding Kim Yong Chols visit, such as whether he and Pompeo will meet.SUMMITFROM PAGE 1House national security adviser Michael Flynn „ have pleaded guilty. Trump has repeatedly referred to Muellers team as 13 angry Democrats,Ž although Mueller is a Republican. Mueller was appointed by Trumps deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, and before that was named FBI director in 2001 by Republican President George W. Bush. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls. There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats.Ž The tweet appeared to be a reference to the fact that multiple lawyers on Muellers team, before signing on for the assignment, contributed money to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton, Trumps Democratic opponent in the presidential election. The Justice Department is barred from discriminating against employees or applicants on the basis of political af“liation. Later Tuesday morning, Trump appeared to be taking guidance from some of his advisers and supporters to heart, saying he needed to focus more of his attention on issues important to Americans and less on the Russia investigation. Sorry, Ive got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/ Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.,Ž he tweeted.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1LAGUNA BEACH, Calif.

The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatmentŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.Ž The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works: As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections. Paid AdvertisementSay Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction adno=50537077By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesThe Major League Baseball draft is less than a week away, the Rays have a pile of picks up top and no clear idea of who they are going to take. And thats a good thing. Team officials said on a conference call Tuesday that the key to making the most of their opportunity is to be prepared and flexible, starting with the No. 16 selection on Monday night, and including three of the top 32 picks, five of 71 and seven of 120. I think were going to get one of the top 16 guys on our board,Ž amateur scouting director Rob Metzler joked. Its part of the anxiety of this process. ƒ That uncertainty creates some anxiety, but I think theres a lot of comfort in the team that we have working on this project, that we have really, really good people and a really, really good process and trust that thats going to lead to an outcome were happy with.ŽMLB: RaysOpen to all possibilitiesBy PETER SCHMUCKTampa Bay TimesBALTIMORE „ Orioles starter Alex Cobb threw one damaging pitch during the seven innings he pitched in Mondays interleague matchup against the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards, but he lost anyway. That seems to be his jam through his first two months in the Orioles rotation. He obviously struggled in his first few starts after signing with the club late in spring training, but has pitched pretty well since the beginning of May. Cobb, the ex-Tampa Bay Rays pitcher who signed with Baltimore as a free agent late in spring training, gave up just three runs on five hits over seven innings in a 6-0 loss, but all three of those runs came on one swing by third baseman Anthony Rendon. It was a quality start, but Cobbs record fell to 1-7 nonetheless. That was fun to watch for him,Ž manager Buck Showalter said. Hes been beating himself up, but thats more like the guy we know is capable of pitching like that. Well take that type of outing against a good club like that any day. Were just not scoring any runs.Ž The only time Cobb has finished a season with a losing record was when he came back from Tommy John surgery at the end of 2016 and made just five starts. MLB: RaysCobb pitching better in Baltimore, still losingBy JOEY KNIGHTTampa Bay TimesWhen their name didnt pop up on the four-team bracket for the Gainesville region during Mondays NCAA Tournament selection show, USFs players whooped and roared their approval. Same reaction when the Tallahassee region „ also bereft of the Bulls „ was announced. We just feel confident going anywhere,Ž said junior 3B David Villar, whose team has been sent to Gainesville for each of their last two NCAA appearances. Butƒa change of scenery is always good.Ž Hence the raucous cheer inside the North 30th Sports Pub & Grille, a brisk jog from the USF campus, when the Bulls were announced as the No. 2 seed the for DeLand region, home to 18thranked Stetson. Change of scenery indeed. For the Bulls (35-20-1), this one clearly offers a more favorable view of the tournaments second weekend. Were thrilled,Ž firstyear coach Billy Mohl said. Were all really excited,Ž Villar added. We didnt know if we were gonna go to Florida or Florida State. Stetsons a little bit of a surprise, but were happy. Its definitely something we can win.Ž By avoiding the No. 1-ranked Gators (42-17) and fifth-ranked Noles (43-17), the Bulls were spared having to face the tournaments No. 1 and 7 overall national seeds, respectively, in a regional. By contrast, they go to the home field of the No. 11 overall seed for this weekends fourteam double-elimination regional. USF opens Friday at 1 p.m. against No. 3-seeded Oklahoma State.

By PAT GRAHAMAssociated PressDENVER „ The profile page of touted teenage shortstop Xavier Edwards reads: Bats: S.Ž A bona fide switchhitter, the Florida native is among six on MLB.coms list of top 100 prospects for the amateur draft that starts June 4. The art of batting from both sides of the plate would figure to be at a premium in this age of shifting defenses and advanced analytics. But in a sport of constant change, the amount remains remarkably steady. The number of switch hitters with 300 or more major league at-bats per season has been at least 30 but no more than 42 since expansion to 30 teams in 1998, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. There were 33 switch hitters on pace to reach that figure at the quarter mark of this season. The simple explanation for why it hasnt soared in popularity is because, well, its far from as easy as Chipper Jones, Pete Rose Eddie Murray Tim Raines, Mickey Mantle and a host of others have made it appear. Hitting is extraordinarily difficult to do at a high level, and asking someone to do it from both sides of the plate is encroaching on impossible,Ž said Brian Sakowski, the national scouting supervisor for the website Perfect Game Thats what makes the guys who do it successfully at the major league level so special.Ž As of Monday, 48 switch-hitting position players were on active rosters, including Philly with five. In addition, five teams didnt even have one. This in an era when teams frequently carry 13 pitchers to create favorable right-on-right, left-on-left matchups. Imagine the late-game possibilities if a manger stacked a lineup early with le fties against a right-handed starter and they could turn around to bat right should a lefty be brought out of the bullpen. Budding switch hitters need plenty of time to learn the skill „ and plenty of room to fail. Younger kids get discouraged without immediate success and it becomes difficult to see it through to the end result, which could be years down the road,Ž said Jones, the Atlanta Braves standout who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in a July ceremony. It takes diligence, more failure than you can imagine and acceptance that the short term must be sacrificed for the long term.Ž A top-30 prospect Edwards began honing his skills as a switch hitter about the time he was old enough to hold a bat. He picked up the skill because his dad, Jovon, was a switch hitter when he was drafted in the fourth round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1984. Nothing was going to derail the process for Xavier Edwards whos committed to Vanderbilt. Not even times when coaches wanted him to bat right-handed „ his more dominant side „ against righthanded pitchers for the sake of winning. He and his father stayed the course. If the game was close, some coaches would be like, Hey, let him go to the plate right-handed. When the score is like 10-0, then let him hit left-handed,Ž recalled Jovon Edwards, who made it as far as the Double-A level before a broken ankle sidetracked his career. As a parent, if youre trying to raise a switch hitter, thats probably the worst thing you can do, because you have to be in pressure situations.Ž Precisely Jones contention. I thought many times about quitting from age 7 to age 19. My father and the Braves said quitting was not an option,Ž Jones said. It became natural and instinctual at age 19, once I was in pro ball. That is a lot of time, failure and heartaches.Ž Over the decades, there have been many, many elite switch hitters. From Frankie Frisch to Mantle and Rose. From Murray to Raines and Roberto Alomar. From Bernie Williams to Carlos Beltran and Jones. The current crop includes Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez of Cleveland, along with Atlantas Ozzie Albies. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter remembers turning Williams into a switch hitter and having the standout from Puerto Rico threaten to go home. He came in one day and said, Im done, if you make me switch hit,Ž Showalter recalled. His dad said that he would get homesick. I said, No problem, Bernie, Ill call your dad and let him know that youre quitting. Hes like, Oh no, dont do that. So he got it going. I said, One day, youre going to thank me for that breaking ball coming toward you instead of away from you.Ž Williams did, too, as he hit .292 against righthanders and .308 versus southpaws over a career with the New York Yankees that saw him earn four World Series titles. There was a moment in the winter league „ it was down there at the Caribbean World Series „ he came over from the on-deck circle, I was over in the stands scouting for the expansion draft, (he said), I want to thank you for making me switch hit,Ž Showalter said. Switch-hitting infielder Alfredo Griffin was in a similar position in the Cleveland organization. He was playing Class A ball and hitting .080 as a righty. His manager at the time asked him if he could switch hit. I told him, No,Ž said Griffin, now the Los Angeles Angels firstbase coach. He told me to take the next at-bat left handed. I slapped the ball and almost beat it out.Ž Many of the mock drafts project the Rays to take a high school position player with that No. 16 pick. Metzler, naturally, said they are open to all possibilities in what he termed a deep draft class in all four quadrants „ high school pitchers, high school position players, college pitchers, college position players. Senior VP Chaim Bloom said the extensive preparation they do is the key. I think in every draft room theres always going to be some speculation and some hunches, What if it fell this way?Ž or What if it fell that way?Ž But the best feeling going into the draft is knowing that youre as prepared as you can be for any situation that comes your wayŽŽ Bloom said. Obviously it was tongue in cheek, but what Rob said about our top 16 „ weve got to be prepared with our top 16 knowing were going to get one of them. ƒ The most we can do to reduce the anxiety is to make sure were prepared for anything that we can think of … and that means not speculating too much.Ž That consistency was one of the reasons the Orioles felt he was a good bet to help shore up a rotation that ranked last in the major leagues last year with a 5.70 ERA. The way the Orioles have been swinging the bat this season, it doesnt seem to matter that the rotation is far deeper than it was a year ago. The margin of error is so thin for the starters that even Dylan Bundy, who has allowed two runs or fewer in six of his 11 starts, still has just three victories. Cobb has allowed no more than three runs in five of his six starts this month, for all the good it has done him, but he said after the game that its more about the impact on the team than on his personal statistics. We want to win ballgames, not on a personal level, just more the team overall,Ž he said. Were trying to win ballgames here every night. Thats not whats happening, but theres more that we can do as pitchers, picking up the offense when they have tough nights. Collectively, as a team, were clicking on different cylinders.Ž He got his first Orioles victory two starts ago in Boston, when the Os offense scored seven runs and stayed awake for almost a whole week. The clubs renewed offensive struggles were not a factor when he took the mound against the Chicago White Sox last week and allowed six runs in just 3 ‡ innings, but the Orioles could not mount any kind of offensive attack against Nats starter Gio Gonzalez on Monday. A three-run deficit has become a pretty big mountain to climb for the Os, who have scored three runs or fewer in nine of their past 10 games and have averaged fewer than four runs per game for the entire season. But Cobb said that shouldnt put extra pressure on the guy on the mound. No, this game is such a mental grind that you have to do one pitch at a time whether youre on offense, pitching or playing defense,Ž he said. Once that home run I gave up and the team is trailing by three, I cant go get those three runs off the board. My next job is to get as many outs as I can and keep more runs from scoring and keep your team in it.Ž Cobb retired eight of nine batters the first time through the Nationals batting order and got the first two outs of the third inning, but the next five batters reached base. Leadoff hitter Trea Turner singled to center and Cobb walked Bryce Harper before Rendon pulled a fly ball down the left-field line that just cleared the fence near the foul pole. The exit velocity of Rendons homer was just 95 mph, but he picked the right place to hit it, Cobb gave up two more hits in the inning, but would not allow another run. He finished strong, retiring 12 of the last 14 batters he faced, and turned the game over to reliever Richard Bleier. Bleier was not as fortunate. He allowed three runs in the eighth inning in what was his worst outing of the season. He had allowed just four earned runs in his first 23 appearances this year, so the three he allowed over just two-thirds of an inning Monday nearly doubled his ERA from a teamleading 1.37 to 2.33. Stetson (45-11) defeated USF twice by five total runs in two mid-week games earlier this season, when the Bulls didnt use their normal Friday or Saturday starting pitchers. Then again, neither did Stetson, which leads the nation in team ERA (2.58). They have a really good pitching staff,Ž said Mohl, whose team reached the semifinals of last weeks American Athletic Conference tournament. Theyre one of the tops in the country in every statistical category, but this time we get to face them with our weekend guys and were looking forward to that matchup.Ž As the No. 1 overall seed, Florida „ the reigning national champion „ also would host a three-team super regional if it prevails in its region (which includes Jacksonville, FSU and Columbia). FSU also would host a super regional if it can win its four-team regional against Mississippi State, Oklahoma and Samford.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressDUBLIN, Ohio „ Tiger Woods has made plenty of progress in his return to golf, especially in the last three months. Starting with the Honda Classic, 19 of his 24 rounds have been at par or better. Four of the last six times on Sunday, he has gone into the final round with at least a remote hope of winning. At two tournaments, he was within one shot of the lead over the final three holes. But thats not the best measure of progress. Think back to a year ago this week. Just over a month after he had back surgery for the fourth time, the image of Woods in a red shirt charging to victory was replaced by a mug shot from a Florida jail after his arrest on a DUI charge in the early morning hours of Memorial Day. He had a white shirt and hollow eyes. He had a problem with painkillers. A mixture of them were in his system after police found him asleep behind the wheel of his car, which was parked awkwardly on the side of the road, the motor running and a blinker flashing. The idea of Woods catching Jack Nicklaus and his 18 majors, or Sam Snead and his 82 career PGA Tour titles, was no longer part of the conversation. It was hard to imagine Woods even getting back to golf at that point. That now seems like a long time ago, almost as if it never happened. Woods is playing again, and playing well enough to win. It could happen this week at the Memorial, a course on which he has won five times and has powerful memories. He was at Shinnecock Hills on Monday, gearing up for the U.S. Open in two weeks. It could happen there. It could happen anywhere. Nicklaus believes the next step for Woods is simply learning how to win again after a drought approaching five years, most of them interrupted by back pain. Nicklaus never went more than two years without a victory during his prime. He also never had a significant injury. In that respect, its hard for him to relate. But he has got to get through the barrier of not having done it for a while,Ž Nicklaus said Tuesday. When you havent won, that always happens and thats human nature. But when you got a guy thats as good as he is and as competitive as he is, hell break through that barrier.Ž Nicklaus, however, saw the bigger picture. Winning appears to be the last obstacle. A year ago, Nicklaus was more concerned about Woods life than how many fairways he hit. He is thrilled to have Woods back at Muirfield Village for the first time since 2015. He is thrilled to see him healthy physically and emotionally. Im very happy for him,Ž Nicklaus said. With all the meds that he had for pain, that can happen to anybody. To have the thing that happened to him and come back from that and get his game and his life back in shape, and quickly, he did a nice job.Ž It was at the Masters last year that Nicklaus tried to persuade Woods to see the physical therapist Nicklaus had used for years. But that was going to take time that Woods didnt have, and fusion surgery followed a few weeks later. I never thought he would play again after that,Ž Nicklaus said. I never dreamed you could fuse somebody and he could go play golf.Ž Nicklaus has spent the better part of two decades facing questions that only time could answer „ whether Woods could break his record in the majors. Woods has gone 10 years since his last major.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers are being given little „ or no „ chance of winning their fourth straight NBA Finals matchup against the Golden State Warriors, who have been installed by Las Vegas bookmakers as the heaviest favorites in the past 16 years. Wanna bet? The Warriors are 12-point favorites to win Thursdays Game 1, the largest spread in a Finals game since 1991, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue isnt blinking. Were all focused on winning a championship,Ž Lue said Tuesday before the team flew to California. We played our best basketball going into the playoffs. Weve gotten better and better throughout the course of the playoffs. Our main focus and our main objective is to win a championship, so we cant worry about what the outside guys are saying and whos being picked. We know what we have here and what were trying to do.Ž Cavs vs. Warriors, Part IV: an expected conclusion to an unpredictable season. Lue said All-Star forward Kevin Love remains in concussion protocol and his status for the series opener is in question. Love sat out Clevelands Game 7 win at Boston on Sunday after suffering a head injury when he and Celtics rookie forward Jayson Tatum accidentally banged heads during the opening minutes of Game 6. Love was replaced in the starting lineup by veteran Jeff Green, who stepped up and scored 19 points as the Cavs completed their comeback after trailing 2-0 and 3-2 in the series. Love is expected back for the Finals, and Lue needs his experience against the Warriors, who like the Cavs rallied to win the Western Conference finals by taking Game 7 on the road.NBA: Cavaliers Odds against Cavs in NBA Finals against WarriorsAP FILE PHOTOCleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts against the Golden State Warriors during the second half of Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals in Cleveland. AP FILE PHOTOTiger Woods reacts after missing a birdie putt during the first round of the The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach. COMMENTARY: GolfWoods has come a long way from Memorial Day arrestNBA: Warriors W hy the Warriors will win the FinalsAssociated PressIf there is a glaring hole on Golden States championship resume, its that the Warriors have never gone back-to-back. That will change. The Warriors are about to win their second straight NBA championship and their third in the last four seasons „ all of them coming at the expense of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who wont have enough even if LeBron James plays to the absolute utmost of his capabilities. The Warriors have homecourt advantage, and have three of the best four players who will appear in the series. Theyre just too good to lose. If they were going to lose, it would have been in the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets. Houston was a team that was built for one purpose „ beating the Warriors. And the Rockets might have done it, too, had Chris Pauls hamstring not popped in the final seconds of Game 5 and forced him to the sideline for the rest of the series. Golden State rallied in both Game 6 and Game 7, as Paul looked on helplessly. Yes, the Warriors caught a huge break. They wont waste this chance. The teams have changed mightily over the last four seasons. There were 20 players who appeared in first CavaliersWarriors game of the 2014-15 season „ only eight of them will be in uniform during this series. Kevin Durant is in Golden State now, Kyrie Irving isnt with the Cavaliers anymore, the benches are very different particularly in Clevelands case. But the principals are still there: James, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green. And over these four years since James returned to northeast Ohio, the Warriors are 17-9 against the Cavaliers. Golden State needed six games to beat Cleveland for the title in 2015, five games last season and if Andrew Bogut didnt get hurt in Game 5 of the 2016 Finals the Warriors „ who ended up blowing a 3-1 lead that year „ probably would have won that series as well. James might be playing the best basketball of his life. Thats why Cleveland is still in these playoffs. Even he wont be able to save the Cavs this time. Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ Its been seven months since Breanna Stewart publicly revealed she was sexually abused as a child. Feedback on her essay in The Players Tribune has been overwhelmingly supportive, and its pushed her to do even more to help abuse victims. It needs to be talked about,Ž Stewart told The Associated Press in an interview over the weekend. Its not something that should be hush-hush. Im not saying everyone needs to share their story, but people need to understand this stuff happens.Ž The Seattle Storm star has partnered with RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) to raise awareness. Stewart wore shoes Friday night in the Storms game against Chicago featuring the organizations phone number. The sneakers were auctioned off after the game to raise money, and she also met with members of the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center. WNBA: Sex-Abuse VictimsStewart embracing chance to help victimsBy STEVE REEDAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith believes the NFL dropped the ballŽ with its new policy that forbids players from sitting or taking a knee on the field during the national anthem. Smith is upset because he feels like the ruling has created a false narrativeŽ surrounding the message former NFL teammate Colin Kaepernick was originally trying to convey while taking a knee prior to NFL games. He said it also paints players as anti-American. Guys arent against the military,Ž Smith said. Kap originally started that against police brutality. It was never against the military. It was never about the military, but that narrative changed.Ž Smith, acquired in an offseason trade with the Eagles, denounced the leagues ruling following Carolinas practice on Tuesday „ its first since it was announced last week at the NFL owners meetings. He said the restrictions imposed by the league on players go against the beliefs that protesters like Kaepernick have stood up for the past couple years. When you see reactive policy ... I always think thats a problem,Ž Smith said. Especially when the message has been changed. ... It makes it seem like Kaepernick or Eric Reid and the guys who started it, what they did was in vain „ like they were villains. And that is not the case.ŽNFL: Anthem PolicySmith: Policy paints Kaepernick as villain

And, yes, the victory. Competing as a mom for the first time at a major, and only about nine months since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, then dealing with postpartum complications, Williams edged 70thranked Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic 7-6 (4), 6-4 at Roland Garros. Already a transcendent sports star and cultural icon, Williams now carries a new title: working mother. Well, my priority is Olympia. No matter what, thats my priority. I have given tennis so much, and tennis has actually given me a lot, and I couldnt be more grateful,Ž Williams said. Shes my priority, and I work everything around her.Ž The 36-year-old American had not played in one of tenniss biggest tournaments since winning the Australian Open in January 2017 for her 23rd Grand Slam title, breaking a tie with Steffi Graf for the most in the professional era. Williams, the world found out later, was pregnant at the time. Her baby was born Sept. 1; Williams married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November. Williams eventually revealed that she had an emergency cesarean section, then encountered trouble breathing afterward because of a pulmonary embolism and needed a follow-up operation. Just literally not sure if I was going to make it or not at several different times,Ž Williams said. A lot of people have really reached out, because they have so many similar stories, too. I feel like a lot of people dont talk about it. They talk about the baby and how happy they are. But its a lot that goes into it with the pregnancy and with giving birth, and its called a miracle for a reason.ŽBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ Gerard Gallant and the Vegas Golden Knights still think Tom Wilsons third-period hit on Jonathan Marchessault in the Stanley Cup Final opener was too late and probably a bit dirty. The coach also believes it sparked his teams comeback victory in that Game 1 thriller. So while he wasnt happy to hear Wilson will face no discipline from the NHL, Gallant is hoping his team will remember the hit „ and more importantly, how they played right after it „ when they attempt to take a 2-0 series lead on the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night on the Strip. The good thing about the hit is it really woke our team up,Ž Gallant said after an optional practice at the Golden Knights suburban training complex. I think it was a 4-4 game?Ž Indeed, two novice Stanley Cup finalists were deep into an entertainingly ramshackle opener, but the Knights took charge after that fateful collision left Marchessault sprawled on the ice. Vegas quickly got Tomas Noseks go-ahead goal eventually won 6-4 and surged one game closer to an improbable championship. The focused aggression necessary to be a successful postseason team is a delicate concoction. The Golden Knights and Caps both had it during the conference playoffs, but they both admit it got away from them in Game 1. I think both teams can be better,Ž Washington coach Barry Trotz said. It was a pretty sloppy game.Ž After one game to get used to the sky-high stakes of the last round of this tournament, both teams intend to channel their nervous energy more constructively in the future. Both coaches stressed the importance of discipline, completing assignments and not allowing the frenetic Vegas crowd to overwhelm their emotions. Theres obviously nerves,Ž Washingtons Jay Beagle said. Im not surprised at anything anymore, but in the Stanley Cup Final, usually its 2-1 or 1-0, not (6-4). But you dont know what to expect from a team that you dont know that much. Now weve got to know them a little bit more.Ž The mistakes that worry coaches also lead to exciting hockey, and the opener was thoroughly entertaining even before Wilson lowered the boom on Marchessault. The teams combined for a Finalrecord four lead changes in the highest-scoring opener in eight years for this final round. Wilson, who served a three-game suspension in the second round for breaking the jaw of Pittsburghs Zach Aston-Reese, and the Capitals still insist the hard-charging forward did nothing wrong when he leveled the Golden Knights top playoff scorer. Its within the rules,Ž Wilson said after practice at T-Mobile Arena. Its a clean hit. I dont know why it got so much media attention, to be honest. Its a hard hit, but thats the day and age were in. ... Im trying to play my game. Theres a lot of those hits that are going on, but its the Stanley Cup Final, and its within the rules.Ž The NHL Department of Player Safety agreed when it decided not to discipline Wilson for the shoulderto-shoulder hit, clearly deciding that Wilsons timing wasnt extraordinarily late. Marchessault went to the dressing room and was examined for a possible concussion, but returned to the game. Gallant said the forward is feeling fine for Game 2. The Capitals had their own complaint about Vegas forward David Perron, who jumped on the ice after the whistle and made contact with Washington captain Alex Ovechkin during the scuffles immediately after the hit. Once the emotions died down, both teams realized theyve got to check their more primal urges if they hope to play a solid game on the NHLs biggest stage. The atmosphere in Las Vegas for the citys first Final has been electric, but the Caps werent intimidated by the frenzied crowd. Washington goalie Braden Holtby said the biggest difference about playing in Vegas is the bass they put in the building. Maybe thats a little false when ... youre literally shaking from the bass. Thats the only difference. (Their) fans are loud. Our fans are loud. Tampas, Pitts, Columbus, all fans are loud.Ž Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Wednesday, May 30, 2018 / The SunSOCCER: World Cup 4100 Riverwood Drive, Port Charlotte, FL 33953(941) 764-6661 € riverwoodgc.comSpecial 18 Hole & Twilight Rates Available.Book Online or Call Today.Join our E-Club for current information on events & membership incentives.adno=50537168TENNISFrom Page 1AP PHOTOVegas Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb, left, hits Washington Capitals right wing Tom Wilson as linesman Jonny Murray tries to break it up during the third period Monday in Las Vegas.

By JAMES ELLINGWORTHAssociated PressMOSCOW „ At their peak, Russian hooligans felt like gods. Were on Mount Olympus right now and it had to be done,Ž is how one veteran hooligan from Moscow recounts his part in brawls with English fans at the 2016 European Championship. We went for the English, who were kings, to knock them off their throne.Ž But ahead of the World C up, Russian authorities are cracking down on the hooligan culture in football. Groups which wreaked havoc two years ago report surveillance and threats from law enforcement. Leading hooligans from each club face lengthy prison sentences on old or trumped-up charges if theres trouble at the World Cup, even if they arent personally involved, the Moscow hooligan „ a large, muscular man with scars on his knuckles „ told The Associated Press. He likened their situation to that of hostagesŽ and said the hooligan scene in Russia is finished.Ž All the leaders get called in for chats,Ž he said, imitating an officer: On behalf of our state security service, Ill explain that if there are problems, then those guys are in prison and youll be joining them. We need everything to go quietly. Its been done precisely so that everyone understands that even if theres no case against you, your guys will get it in your place.Ž Speaking on condition of anonymity to describe numerous illegal acts, he said he traveled to Marseille in 2016 specifically to take part in fights with the English at the European Championships. Englands hooligans of the 1980s and 1990s inspired many Russian groups „ most still bear English names „ but in Marseille the Russians wanted to snuff out that reputation. For a long time the English were considered the strongest,Ž he said, but they were no match for Russians with martial-arts training. There were guys sitting there with a Birmingham banner and we went up to them. Either were taking your banner or you stand up and fight for it. The Birmingham guys decided they didnt need the banner that much.Ž The violence on Marseilles streets and in the stadium was greeted with jokes and even praise from some Russian lawmakers and officials. President Vladimir Putin called the fighting sad,Ž then questioned how 200 Russian fans could beat up several thousand English,Ž to laughter from his audience. Other sources with knowledge of the fan scene described the Russian crackdown since Marseille. Alexander Shprygin ran a fan group which worked with the government on World Cup planning, and had been photographed with Putin. He has rapidly fallen from grace. Shprygin was twice deported from France during the 2016 tournament and two of his organizations board members were imprisoned in Marseille over the disorder. He denies any role. Russian hooligans in World Cup crackdown after 2016 rampage By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS „ Serena Williams considers the black bodysuit she wore at the French Open much more than a fashion statement. Theres a practical reason for the full-length legs on the skintight outfit: The aim is to protect her because of past bouts with blood clots. There also is a message she wanted to send about self-worth and feeling powerful as she returned to Grand Slam action with a first-round victory at Roland Garros on Tuesday, about nine months after giving birth to a daughter. It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves,Ž Williams said after beating Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 (4), 6-4 at Court Philippe Chatrier. I definitely feel like it is an opportunity for me to inspire a whole different group of amazing women and kids.Ž The outfit called to mind Williams black catsuitŽ that she wore at the 2002 U.S. Open. It also was reminiscent of the white bodysuit that American player Anne White wore at Wimbledon in 1985. Williams referred to what she wore Tuesday as the catsuit „ the new version, 2.0.Ž I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit,Ž referring to the fictional nation in the film Black Panther.Ž We designed it way before the movie,Ž she said, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.Ž Williams said she feels like a warrior princess, kind of,Ž when she wears the outfit. Im always living in a fantasy world,Ž she added. I always wanted to be a superhero, and its kind of my way of being a superhero.ŽTENNIS: French OpenSerenas Wakanda-inspired bodysuit about more than fashionSerena Williams returns to Lindsay Davenport during their semifinal match at the 2002 US Open in New York. By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS „ Denis Shapovalov plopped himself down for his news conference Tuesday after winning his French Open debut, leaned into the microphone and said, Sup?Ž Then he smiled broadly as can be. This was a milestone day in the nascent career of the rapidly rising Canadian teen, who seems as carefree on the court as he is off it, compiling significant victories and praise from opponents in equal doses. Shapovalovs first Grand Slam match as a seeded player „ he is No. 24 at Roland Garros „ became a 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 victory over 59thranked John Millman of Australia, thanks in large part to a 32-9 edge in total winners. A year ago, not only wasnt Shapovalov seeded, he didnt even make the main draw, losing in the opening round of qualifying. Its tough to climb the way I did. Its been pretty crazy. Even I didnt expect it,Ž Shapovalov said. I mean, Im just trying to stay focused. Like I always say, doesnt matter the week, doesnt matter the result, Im always trying to get back on the court and get better. I m only 19. I have a lot to improve, a lot to learn.Ž Asked how he thinks he can get better, Shapovalov began by saying there are so many areas he wants to work on that it could take hours to list them all.TENNIS: French Open Canadian Shapovalov, 19, wins French Open debut
