NEWS WIRE Disability doesnt dampen skydiving dream Man with Down syndrome marks aerial feat LAKE PLACID „ The sky is the limit for Bobby Paradise, of Lake Placid, who reached one of his dreams to skydive and become the “rst person with Down syndrome in Highlands County to do such a feat. Bobby, 58, took to the sky to go tandem skydiving June 4 at Skydive Spaceland in Clewiston while his brother, Mike Paradise, also of Lake Placid, watched from the ground. He jumped at 14,000 feet with his instructor attached by harness from behind. Bobbys jump lasted 7 minutes with 1 minute freefalling at 120 mph before the instructor pulled the shoot and they ”oated down to the ground. I was shaking all over and so worried about him. My stomach was in knots,Ž Mike Paradise said. Our baby sister, Theresa Straniero, had the “nal say in allowing Bobby to go. She said, If he wants to do it, let him go. Ž Mike admitted that he was still shaking that evening. SEBRING „ Fox 13 meteorologist Dave Osterbergs longtime fascination with hurricanes placed him face-toface reporting on Hurricane Jeanne in 2004 when the Category 3 storm hit Vero Beach. But, he shared with the audience Saturday at the Hurricane Preparedness Expo at Lakeshore Mall that he will never ”y into a storm on a hurricane hunter aircraft. No way, ever, ever, ever; zero chance of that happening,Ž he told Highlands News-Sun. I dont like ”ying; I may study the clouds, but I dont like ”ying.Ž Osterberg answered many questions at the hurricane expo, such as about the seemly unpredictable path that Hurricane Irma took when it ended up coming through Floridas Heartland. He said forecasts are good for three days out and within about 50 to 60 miles area of where a storm will strike. He said to beware of alarmists on social media who will make reports based on unreliable forecast models that are trying to predict 10 to 14 days out on where a storm is headed. The Friday and Saturday Hurricane Preparedness Expo was sponsored by Boaters World Marine Centers of Lake Placid in partnership with Highlands News-Sun and the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners. Folks came out for information from the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center and to learn about services and products related to storm needs and safety. Osterberg stressed that the European and GFS (Global Forecast Systems) models are the two best models for forecasting hurricanes because they are global models versus other models that are based on climatology or local in”uences. Keith and Judy Voy, of Sebring, came to expo to see Osterberg. It was a scary hurricane so I want to know everything I need to know,Ž Judy said of Hurricane Irma.After Irma, residents seek storm info at hurricane expoBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER AVON PARK „ The Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 wrapped up its nearly year-long adventure in learning about Highlands County on Thursday with a “nal class session that morning followed by its graduation luncheon at The Hotel Jacaranda. The class met Thursday morning at the shared retail location of Pure Grit Boot Company and The Gun Rack on U.S. 27 N. in Sebring. The owners related the challenges and rewards in starting their own business. Then at South Florida State College, Highlands County Economic Development Manager Taylor Benson led the group in a revisit of the strengths and challenges in the public and private services in Highlands County, which were discussed during the class retreat in October. The Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 started with an orientation in August. But, the planned dayand-a-half retreat that kicks off the monthly sessions was pushed back from September to October due to Hurricane Irma. At the graduation, Hurricane Irma was mentioned in a musical and recited recap, by “ve class members, of the highlights from the Class of 2018 sung to the Set to make an impactBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER Meet the Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 gradsCOURTESY PHOTOThe Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 during its trip to Tallahassee in February.

Cardinals are non-migratory birds that are attracted to bird houses and feeders, especially those with a great supply of food. 2. They gather in big ”ocks of about 70 birds during winter time and often nest in bushy thickets. 3. When the female cardinal sings from the nest, it may be a sign to the male that she is in need of food. 4. Both male and female cardinals sing but the female normally sings longer and in a more complex melody. 5. The male cardinal is the defender of their breeding territory. In fact, it can spend long hours “ghting his re”ection he sees in glass surfaces. The brighter red cardinal males prefer territories in thick vegetation. They feed at faster rates and are more successful in reproducing. Source: http://www. Chloe Terrace residents get big victorySebring agrees to pay for most of drainage repairsSEBRING „ Residents of Chloe Terrace were granted their hearts desires as Sebring City Council members agreed to take up most of the cost of the drainage repairs along their residential street. During the Tuesday night regular meeting, the Council decided to pay for re-digging the swales along both sides of the roughly 330 feet of road, installing new drainage pipes, and replacing the driveway where the new culvert pipes will be installed. Homeowners will only have to pay for the culvert piping that will go underneath the driveways. Several residents of the small community attended the meeting to ensure their concerns were voiced. They were able to speak to Council members, Mayor John Shoop and Carl Cool of Cool and Cobb Engineering. Cool and Cobb was consulted to determine the drainage problems and report its “ndings to the Council. A similar situation from the 1990s, in part, helped councilors make the decision. Cool said the problems originate with the sandy land to the west of Lake Jackson. When the rain lands on the sand, it moves laterally to the low spot, which is Lake Jackson. It is seeping down that sandy hill; it occasionally outcrops, its a spring when it outcrops,Ž Cool said. If it doesnt outcrop, it just goes down the hill, but it is always seeping down the hill and thats a major part of the recharge of Lake Jackson. The subdivision design was developed with culverts for the “rst part and swales.Ž Cool said that system worked until people “lled in the swales, and yard clippings made the swales ”at. A solution is to go in there and cut the swales out and regrade them,Ž Cool said. What you have are some driveways that failed down at the lower end of this road. It is my opinion that they failed because water has been ”owing under the driveways, some other way then the culvert.Ž Cool explained that the metal culverts can rust out and have a lifespan of about 20 years. When the culverts are compromised, water runs around it, taking grains of sand with it, causing caverns underneath the driveways. There are several driveways on the street that have failedŽ because of this, according to Cool. If you dont “x the culvert, there is no reason to “x the driveways,Ž Cool said. Cool wasnt focused solely on the residents homes but on how the water is affecting the street too. In the pictures I took, you see some brown stain marks in the pavement. Thats really bad for you (Council); thats your investment, the road.Ž Cool said that water is coming up through the base of the road causing the stains. Doing nothing would be dangerous to residents, Cool said. Other solutions were: To recreate the 330 feet of swale for the lower end of the street, replace the culvert under the damaged driveways and have homeowners pay for their driveway restoration, or install a six inch underdrain pipe on the north and south side of the road between the road and driveway culvert, which would keep drains drier and provide better drainage for the city street. Cool said the piping in the yards should have perforation, also called French drains, but the pipe under the driveways should be solid. He explained the pros and cons to all of the solutions. He “elded questions from Council members and the residents of Chloe Terrace. Estimated costs are: Swale regrading, $9,300; underdrain installation, $23,100, totaling $32,400. The estimate for homeowners to repair their driveways and culverts was $3,300, the three driveways would equal $9,900. Fees for the engineering and design would be about $10,000. The city has always had the policy that homeowners are responsible for their own driveways. Cool conveyed a sense of urgency because of the rainy season. He also said the materials should be uniform and that one contractor should do the work. Resident Denver Fisher asked the Council to consider the more expensive route for a more permanent “x with the underdrains. He also pointed out that a clean outŽ be installed at periodic installments to keep the drains clean. Fisher recommended regular maintenance. Another resident Gail Gillotti said the road has been repaired three times and it has made the problem worse. She said her house is the worst on the street, followed by Phil Gilroys with Fishers house next. Gillotti said that she understood that the homeowner was normally responsible for the driveway but the Council should be aware that some are on a “xed income. Be aware that anything you do to me is going to hurt,Ž Gillotti said. Very few of the driveways are just falling apart. I even had a gator come live under my driveway for a little while. I am worried that it is still draining even when its not raining.Ž After further discussion, Councilman Tom Dettman made a motion to have the engineering “rm design the project and for construction to begin to swale the yards, use the culverts and the underdraining with cleanouts, with the understanding that residents share in their part to make this right and do it once and right the “rst time and spend the $32,000.Ž After discussing theshare in their partŽ about the driveways, Councilman Scott Stanley raised a concern that the driveways would be cut out to put a new culvert in. If the resident couldnt afford the “x to the driveway, the culvert would be in jeopardy. Council members changed directions about what the residents were to pay. Dettman amended his motion to have the rusted-out culverts removed to be replaced by a plastic pipe paid by the homeowner, while the city would pay the nearly $10,000 in the concrete repair costs to the driveway. The pipes would cost hundreds of dollars instead of thousands.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 10, 2018 County accepts bear can fundsMcMillian: Purchase deadline June 30SEBRING „ County Commissioners voted Tuesday to accept funds from the state for the sale of bear-resistant garbage cans. Now, the matter is in the hands of county staff to send a purchase order for the cans in time to get reimbursed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The state “scal year ends June 30. Mike McMillian, the countys environmental specialist who applied for the grant, said the bid has gone to Rehrig Paci“c, the same company that provides the countys blue garbage carts and green recycling carts for residents. With the County Commissions “nal approval Tuesday of the non-discussed item on the consent agenda, the matter has been sent to the countys purchasing department to issue a purchase order. McMillian thinks the transaction can be closed within the month. It takes eight weeks to get the cans delivered, though, he said. It was getting very close to get the funds from FWC,Ž McMillian said. Their “scal year ends this month. I keep talking to FWC. Theyre panicking, but still good.Ž The FWC program to provide bear-resistant garbage containers for residents is a reimbursable program: The county gets up to $48,000 after buying the carts. The purchase order request is for $47,810, McMillian said. Were going to try to spend as much as we can,Ž McMillian said. The actual cost of the carts is $215 each, but with the FWC subsidy, McMillian said, the county should be able to sell them for $75 each „ the same price for a replacement garbage can under the current garbage hauler contract. The push for bear-resistant cans came last year when residents on Mini Ranch Road were hammered on a daily basis,Ž McMillian said, by bears pawing and nosing through their garbage, leaving yards and streets strewn with it. McMillian arranged for a pilot program using similar cans by another vendor, and wrote a grant for a county supply of the bear-proof cans. To qualify for the bid, companies had to have a product that would stay shut and locked when knocked over by bears, but would open easily when tipped up over Waste Connections automated trucks. Waste Connections tested cans from Kodiak Products and from Rehrig Paci“c, and both worked well with the automated trucks.By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER Take Stock in Children recognizes mentors, studentsAVON PARK „ The dedicated mentors and their hardworking students in Take Stock in Children were recognized Thursday during its year-end program at the University Center at South Florida State College. The students, their families, mentors and college staff members in the program, supported by the SFSC Foundation, gathered to look back at the accomplishments of the students who shared their future educational/ career plans. The mentors were thanked for donating their time to meet oneon-one to help guide their students efforts in school. Sebring High School senior Chandler Gowan said he will be going to the University of South Florida to study premed with a goal of being in the USF medical program to become a doctor. His mentor was his math teacher from Sebring Middle School „ Lyle Pontious. It was pretty good having a role model to keep in touch with over the years and just having somebody that you can look up to who helps you if you are having troubles or problems, advice or anything like that,Ž he said. It has been a good support for moving on to the later stages in life.Ž Lake Placid High senior Gianna Saccente said Take Stock in Children helped by giving her the option to go to college. She plans on going to SFSC for two years and then transferring to the University of Central Florida to study child psychology. George Hensley has been a mentor in the program for several years. You hope that you are able to give the students good advice, have some interaction and be a friend of theirs,Ž he said, and help steer them toward college, the military or a career. Mentors encourage them to study, use good judgment and use their skills, Hensley said. The Take Stock in Children Class of 2018 had 31 graduates among the colleges three county district: Sebring High 10; Avon Park High 2; Lake Placid High 5; Hardee Senior High 8 and DeSoto High 6. South Florida State College Foundation Inc. Executive Director Jamie Bateman said the class had an average GPA of 3.75 with 12 over a 4.0 GPA and the highest GPA at 4.85. Among the 31 Take Stock graduates, 14 were in the top 10 percent of their graduating class. Three had already graduated from high school with their AA degree, three were going into the military and two graduated from high school early in December. Take Stock in Children matches students at risk of not completing high school with mentors who guide them toward earning their diplomas, It is a statewide program that provides children with a mentor and a two-plus-two college scholarship „ two years at a state or community college and two years at a state university in Florida. The Take Stock staff also help the student obtain “nancial assistance for housing, transportation, and other such expenses. In return, the student signs a contract to earn at least a grade of C in every class, graduate from high school with good attendance records, maintain good behavior in school and have no involvement with law enforcement or drugs. The SFSC Foundation serves as the lead agency for Take Stock in its service area of DeSoto, Hardee, and Highlands counties.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 10, 2018 We hear it all the time in political discourse … Makers versus the takers. Republicans sometimes say certain folks make all the money, and the other folks just take their money. There is an element of truth, but not the whole truth in the Republican logic. Democrats sometimes say how certain folks make all the products and those other folks take all the pro“ts. There is also an element of truth, but not the whole truth, in the Democratic logic as well. Is it possible that Democrats and Republicans are both right? Is it possible that each of us is both a maker and a taker? Lets look at taxes. The top half of the income earners in America pay almost 100 percent of the federal income tax. The top earners also pay more as a percentage of their income. The Tax Policy Center says the top 1 percent of Americans paid 33 percent of their income in taxes. The middle class pays just 14 percent of the income in federal taxes and the poor just 3 percent. Is that fair? Looking at federal income taxes paid, it is hard to disagree with the Republican logic on who is a maker and who is a taker. For a different view, lets look at all the other taxes paid, primarily state and local taxes. Now the roles are reversed. Gas taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, the lottery, cigarette and alcohol taxes all fall harder on the working poor than the wealthy. Across America, the poorest 20 percent pay about 11 percent of their income in state and local income taxes. The middle pays about 9 percent. The top 1 percent pays only 5 percent of their income in state and local taxes. Who is the maker and who is the taker in this situation? Poor families pay almost eight times more as a percentage of their incomes in just sales and excise taxes than the best-off families. The middle-income class pay “ve times more as a percentage of their income in sales and excise taxes than the wealthy. Floridas economy is a two-note symphony … tourism and retirees. We almost always structure our state policies around attracting more and more retirees as our goal. We proudly market ourselves as a low tax state to draw in more retirees. Florida is a low tax state … but only if you are a reasonably well-off retiree. Our state of Florida has the second most regressive state and local taxes in the nation. If you have a job serving the wealthy, cutting their lawn, nursing them back to health or “xing their plumbing, your paycheck seems to barely last from week to week. One of the primary reasons the workers in Florida struggle “nancially, is our elected of“cials policy is to have the wealthy pay 2 percent of their income in state and local taxes and have the waiter at the restaurant pay 13 percent. Who is the maker and who is the taker in this scenario? Is it possible we can drop the pejorative maker versus taker language? Shouldnt we instead think about what combined federal, state and local tax policy makes the most sense? We have the smartest newspaper readers in America „ what system would you design and why?

VIEWPOINTS Karen Clogston Editor Rob Kearly Circulation Director David Dunn-Rankin INK IN MY VEINS For your least-favorite local eatery, the headline Grease Turns 40Ž might elicit chuckles of I told you those bribes to the health inspector would pay off. But for cinema fans, it means the top-grossing movie of 1978 is back in the spotlight. June 16 marks the 40th anniversary of the nostalgic musical about girlnext-door Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John), greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta, still riding the Welcome Back, KotterŽ and Saturday Night FeverŽ popularity wave), Kenickie, Rizzo and the rest of the T-Birds and Pink Ladies of Rydell High. Ive loved the “lm since shortly after its debut (I had already been blown away a few months earlier by a college production of the 1971 stage musical), even though Id had no personal experience with drag racing, cigarettes, gang membership, summer romances, hickies, pregnancy scares, joining the track team, mooning or televised dance contests. Or being distinguishable from the wallpaper unless I yawned. Yes, the “lm has been a pleasure; but it has always been a guilty pleasure, even more so with an impressionable teenage son around. I felt a little less solitarily prudish recently when I read a blog saying that a signi“cant number of other fans are troubled that (spoiler alert!) Sandy “nds true love only by ultimately transforming into an aggressive sexpot. (Marie Osmond had turned down the role when the script had called for Sandy to be even edgier.) I mean, our musical heroines had usually been more chaste than that, hadnt they? Can you imagine the Mother Abbess advising Maria, Climb every mountain, experience every STDŽ? Or Nellie Forbush insisting, Im gonna wash that DNA evidence right outa my hairŽ? Travolta (who received the inaugural VarietyŽ Cinema Icon Award at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival in May) has been playfully noncommittal about the viral internet rumor that Sandy actually drowned at the beginning of the movie and everything else was just her coma dream. I am hopelessly devoted to treating the theory as heresy. It would open the door to too many other uncertainties about the settled scienceŽ of our cherished “lms. Was Hannibal Lecter just a whimsical vegan? Are the Apollo 13 astronauts still up there somewhere? Did Prissy in Gone With The Wind,Ž despite her protestations of ignorance about birthing babies, actually operate Midwives R Us? Did Forrest Gumps friend Jenny actually shout, Saunter, Forrest, saunterŽ? I know the Fifties werent perfect, but GreaseŽ offers a sort of comfort food for the soul. I would hate to see the movie being rewritten to re”ect the world of 2018. Danny would brag of the hot rod Greased Lightning, This car is automatic. Its systematic. Its hyyyyydromatic. Its...still about an hour from being fully charged.Ž The drive-in scene? Sandy would storm off after Danny let the Uber driver grope her. Instead of declaring, You cant just walk out of a drive-in,Ž Danny would whine, You cant just walk out of the Church of Scientology!Ž According to USA TODAY, Travolta thinks the characters Danny and Sandy are the real dealŽ and are still out there together somewhere in movie land. Of course, the passing years will have made a difference in their love songs. When Danny sings, Ive got chills, theyre multiplyin/And Im losin control,Ž instead of passionate necking, there would be an urgent search for adult undergarments and a doctor accepting new Medicare patients. Danny Tyree welcomes email responses at and visits to his Facebook fan page Tyrees Tyrades.Ž Columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Grease turns 40! Peachy keen, Jellybean! Danny TyreeTYRADES! For the last two days, residents of Highlands County have been able gather information on what is expected to be an active hurricane season, tips on what to do in preparation for a storm, as well as get their questions answered by experts. Thousands made their way to Lakeshore Mall to visit vendors and hear from experts, including meteorologists from three different television stations. The event was the Hurricane Preparedness Expo, brought to the county by the Highlands News-Sun and the Highlands County Emergency Operations Management. The two-day expo was sponsored by Boaters World. The success of such an event requires many hours of planning and organizing. It involves the collaborative work of many people. It starts with a need being realized and a desire to bring people together for the betterment of our own community. That desire for the Hurricane Preparedness Expo came from two separate groups: the Highlands News-Sun and the Highlands County Emergency Management. The need was realized after seeing how poorly prepared the county and its residents were prepared for Hurricane Irmas journey through the county last September. County of“cials realized through their daily work last year that there was more that residents could do to prepare for a hurricane. They also realized there was more that the county itself could do to prepare itself. When county of“cials learned that the Highlands News-Sun was planning a Hurricane Preparedness Expo, they two groups joined forces. The Highlands News-Sun had already organized a very successful Senior Expo and Family Extravaganza earlier in the year. Pam Harris, events coordinator for the Highlands News-Sun, worked with county of“cials to quickly organize a list of speakers that would include television meteorologists in the area and a number of local experts. Bringing just the right people together to provide answers and inform the public of important issues is what Harris does. But she also knows the importance of including the entire family in such events. With the Hurricane Preparedness Expo, she made sure to include children with a Kids Zone sponsored by Alan Jay Automotive Network. Just as with the Senior Expo and Family Extravaganza where more than 7,000 people attended, organizers realize its important to have a draw for all ages and interests. Where there is a need in the community, Highlands News-Sun representatives will come together to help “ll the void. We will join others in the community to help make sure as much information as possible can be provided for residents. Vendors will be sought to help inform attendees. We have speci“c duties that we perform as your community newspaper; gathering and reporting on the issues that matter most will always be our path. However, as Highlands News-Sun Publisher Tim Smolarick has often said, this does not mean we cant participate in events that provide information or entertainment. In this vein we are forging partnerships with many local businesses to bring events such as these to you. We constantly discuss new ways to do just this, so get ready. We have golf tournaments and masquerade balls coming your way soon. Feel free to join your newspaper and partners in any and all of these adventures. We promise to put a smile on your face.

Sunday, June 10, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 Man charged with harassing flight attendantFORT MYERS (AP) „ Authorities say an elderly man was arrested at a Florida airport after harassing a ”ight attendant. The News-Press reports that the 82-year-old Fort Myers man was charged Thursday with suspicion of battery and interference of aircraft operations after his plane landed at Southwest Florida International Airport. Lee County Port Authority police say the American Airlines ”ight was traveling from Philadelphia to Fort Myers when the man poked a ”ight attendant and told her to move. Of“cials say the man also called the woman a racial slur and told her she was too fat for her job. The man was later released on $1,000 bail. Jail records didnt list an attorney.Deputy leaves gun in Burger King restroomNEW PORT RICHEY (AP) „ Authorities say theyre trying to “nd a gun that a Florida deputy left in a Burger King bathroom. A Pasco County Sheriffs Of“ce news release says the gun was left at the New Port Richey restaurant shortly before noon on Friday and was gone when the plainclothes detective returned 45 minutes later. Deputies spent several hours Friday tracking down a man who appeared in surveillance video. The man was being questioned Friday evening, but the gun wasnt immediately recovered. The sheriffs of“ce didnt release details about how the gun was left in the bathroom. No charges were immediately “led against the man in the video.High school sweethearts, teachers retire after 40 yearsLOXAHATCHEE (AP) „ After a combined 80 years of teaching, Kim and Barbara Grinder have said goodbye to the world of lesson planning, standardized testing and disciplining students. But there were no cartwheels down the hallways, throwing of papers or a big retirement party at Seminole Ridge High School on the “rst Friday in June. Barbara said she wanted an Irish goodbye,Ž where she walks out the school doors with no sappy farewells. For decades the two „ who were high school sweethearts „ have molded young minds, but their journeys began differently. Kim always knew he wanted this career, while Barbara was pushed into it. Ive always wanted to be a teacher. Ive always been a teacher,Ž said Kim, who has taught at Seminole Ridge for all of its 13 years. And, Ive loved what Ive done.Ž He previously taught at Royal Palm Beach High School and Crestwood Middle. Barbara said her husband was born to be a teacher. Ive had to work at it for many years.Ž She previously taught at Cypress Trails Elementary for 18 years. Barbara wanted to be a dentist, but her father decided teaching was a more suitable career for a woman. After graduating college, the two got married in 1973 and started their 40-year careers at separate schools in a town just south of Buffalo, New York. Their small towns economy was driven by the steel plants and when the plants started closing in the 1980s, people started losing their jobs „ including Barbara. In 1984, the couple made the move to Royal Palm Beach, where they still live. The two have watched the population skyrocket from 3,000 to more than 30,000 and have seen their profession change immensely. When I started, students were willing to work,Ž said Kim, who taught AP English. AP students are still willing, still motivated to work. But outside of the AP students, I think the work ethic is just not there.Ž Barbara, who taught reading and regular English at Seminole Ridge for 11 years, said teaching today is a challenge, especially with technology. For some (students), its digital heroin. Its techno-crack,Ž she said. Its like they dont know how to stop or put the phones down.Ž While they both acknowledge how wonderful technology in the classroom can be, they say it becomes too much when its test time. Computer-based testing .Ž Kim started to say before sighing, its so bad. Its so awful.Ž His wife agreed. We arent a fan of computer-based tests, but thats the wave of the future,Ž she said. They also arent fans of the many tests students have to take. Barbara said it gets students stuck in this trackŽ where they believe they arent as smart as the other students because they didnt test well. Say you had a headache that day and didnt do well, youre going to fail,Ž she said. If you had a “ght with your mom and you didnt test well, there you go. You just blew it. You just unknowingly decided your fate for the next year.Ž Sometimes, though, Kim said, youll get an attentive teacher like his wife and things can change for the students. She had a number of students that she taught two years in a row and saw something in them. She recommended them for my AP class,Ž he said. Those students did so well. They worked hard. It was a lovely change for me.Ž Barbara chimed in, No. It was a lovely change for them.Ž While students can be a challenge and the state tests might not be ideal, Barbara asked herself out loud, Do we love our jobs?Ž She answered, Of course we love our jobs. We wouldnt have stayed in this “eld for so long if we didnt.Ž Palm Beach PostPensacola museum and flight academy opens PENSACOLA (AP) „ Chappie James childhood home in downtown Pensacola is now history. But James, an American hero, might not be the last young person to walk the halls of the small home and make history. The Gen. Daniel ChappieŽ James Museum & Flight Academy opened June 7. The historic home „ where his mother also ran a school „ is located at 1608 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. James was a legendary Air Force combat pilot and the “rst African-American four-general in the U.S. military, earning his fourth star Sept. 1, 1975, when he assumed command of NORAD in Colorado. He died Feb. 25, 1978, at the age of 58. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. There might not be a statue of him,Ž said Ellis Jones, the Pensacola museums board president. But this is the next best thing.Ž The 900-square-foot home has been renovated and serves as a museum, but an additional structure has been added „ a 1,500-square-foot building that will serve as headquarters and classrooms for the Gen. Daniel ChappieŽ James Flight Academy. For 22 years, the ”ight academy has run free camps for largely underprivileged children to learn about the science and mechanics of ”ight. But with a permanent facility, the academy will now offer a year-round aeronautical program for boys and girls ages 13 to 18. This means that we will be able to have a living legacy for Gen. Chappie James through our ”ight academy,Ž said academy director Cliff Curtis. The city of Pensacola and the Community Redevelopment Agencys $1.1 million renovation/ construction project broke ground in January 2017. The residence, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was constructed in 1909 by Chappie James father, Daniel James Sr. Jones said items are still being added to the museum, and other additions will be made throughout the year. Were not at 100 percent now,Ž he said. But well continue adding artifacts that not only pertain to him, but to his family and his mother and her efforts in shaping her son and so many young people in Pensacola. We want to inspire others.Ž James story is certainly inspirational. Early in his life, he would see pilots ”ying over downtown Pensacola and tell friends he was going to do that someday. Most laughed, knowing the pilots ”ying overhead werent black like they were. He was educated by his mother until high school, when he attended and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School. He then attended Tuskegee Institute, where he earned a bachelors degree and completed civilian pilot training under a government-sponsored program. He entered the Army Air Corps Aviation Cadet Program and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in July 1943 and trained as a “ghter pilot. James ”ew 180 combat missions during the Korean and Vietnam wars, receiving numerous honors. He was a hard-core patriot and became known for his speeches on American exceptionalism, even at a time when many African-Americans were still “ghting for civil rights.

Leadership Highlands Chair Mike McLeod presented the Morris Adams Award for the outstanding class member, which is named in memory of the principal founder of Leadership Highlands. The honor was “rst awarded in 2007 after the passing of Adams. Melissa Blackman received the award for the Class of 2018. Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 graduate Kathy Hill said Leadership Highlands is an awesomeŽ and wonderfulŽ program. As a new resident to the county, it gave me an opportunity to really learn about the county in a very condensed time frame,Ž she said. I met some really outstanding individuals; learned some concepts that were new and different and applied in different ways. I would highly recommend it to anybody and any organization to send their people. It is a really great leadership development tool and a real bene“t to the county.Ž Leadership Highlands Class of 2018 Class President Melony Culpepper said, I really enjoyed it; it was a great opportunity to learn about the county.Ž Culpepper was born and raised in Highlands County, but the class introduced her to things she didnt know about here, she said. Founded and nurtured by the three Highlands County Chambers of Commerce and select alumni, who comprise the Leadership Highlands Advisory Board, the goals of the program include familiarizing the participants with the infrastructure, agencies and economic enterprises that exist in Highlands County. The program started with its Class of 2000. The monthly eight-hour sessions focus on criminal justice and county courthouse, economic development, media and human services, agriculture, education and health care.

Bobby said the jump was awesomeŽ as he gave a thumbs up. I felt like Superman.Ž While up in the air, Bobby said the clouds looked like marshmallows.Ž When he jumped out of the plane, he yelled, Geronimo.Ž Mike gave nothing but praises for the staff at Skydive Spaceland. They took good care of him like he was one of their own and helped him to relax. They even kept me calm,Ž Mike chuckled as he described instructor Joe Stern and videographer Dawn Ashley. Bobby did amazing. He was great in freefall,Ž Ashley said. He had a great energy and I loved working with him. His brother said that he never smiles but I got some great pictures of him smiling as he was freefalling.Ž Bobby simply wanted to complete his be like Mike list.Ž Bobbys brother, who is one year older than him, retired from the U.S. Army where he learned to scuba dive and parachute. Bobby came from Fall River, Mass., to live with Mike in December 2016. Their parents died when they were both in their teens. Bobby had four other siblings who were split up after the death of their parents. Mike adopted one sister, another sibling took care of the other sibling and that left Bobby going to his grandmothers home where he lived for 20 years until she died. Bobby then lived with an aunt for 20 more years. I joined the military and would come back to see Bobby during leave,Ž Mike said. They took good care of Bobby but he was more of a latch key kid. He was very shy.Ž Mike explained that Bobbys activities were very limited and he mostly stayed home. He bowled or played softball in Special Olympics once every two months but that was all the social events he would engage in. Once Mike took custody of Bobby in 2016, he blossomed and came out of his shell. Mike enrolled him in the Special STARS program in Highlands County and Bobbys social life has grown tremendously. I have two girlfriends,Ž Bobby chimed in with a grin. Bobby went “shing and rode a horse for the “rst time during some Special STARS events this past spring. In addition to horseback riding, “shing and skydiving, Bobby has ridden a Harley Davidson motorcycle, jet skied and boated for the “rst time. He is an avid Red Sox fan and his bedroom is decked out to look like a baseball stadium with Red Sox memorabilia everywhere, including his hallway and bathroom. As for Bobbys next adventure to be like Mike, he wants to go scuba diving. I make sure we spend Bobbys money on what he wants to do,Ž Mike said. I am living my life through him. I am so proud of him.Ž Bobbys advice to all people with disabilities was, Practice, try hard and go ahead and do it.ŽSKYFROM PAGE 1Anthony DEredita relocated to Sebring from Long Island, N.Y. just three weeks before Hurricane Irma struck. I am new to Florida,Ž he said. I love this expo; this year I am going to be prepared.Ž He was at the expo Friday and missed out on getting one of the 5-gallon plastic buckets that were being given away for use to store and seal up storm supplies. But, DEredita returned Saturday with his sister, Roseann Accardo, and they both got a bucket. Accardo has lived in Florida for 37 years and went through storms in south Florida, but in her experience with Hurricane Irma in Highlands County was the worst, she said. The winds were so bad; it was terrible.Ž County Commissioner Jack Richie said he was really happy with the turnout. Between 4,000 to 5,000 people are believed to have attended. Most of all, the people that are working here are very happy with the turnout and seeing how the people are getting their questions answered,Ž he said.

LOCAL SPORTSPickett takes Trans Am West raceFormer ALMS team owner shows he still has what it takesMore than 40 years ago Greg Pickett won his “rst Trans Am series race at Sears Point, now known as Sonoma Raceway. A week ago, he repeated that success by winning Round 2 of the Trans Am West Championship presented by Pirelli at that very same track. Pickett, in the No. 6 Flavor Insights Ford Mustang, started the race on pole, and began to build a lead on second place “nisher Tomy Drissi. By lap 12, the gap between them was over 4 seconds. Drissi, in the No. 8 Goshare Chevrolet Camaro, was not about to give up, and clawed back much of that time in the next few laps, reducing the gap to 1.5 seconds by lap 17. Over the next 17 laps, the lap times see-sawed back and forth between Pickett and Drissi, maintaining that gap until lap 34, when Drissi put his car down the inside into Turn 12 to take the lead. The top spot was not his for very long, as Pickett passed him under braking into Turn 7 the very next lap. That pass was the decisive move of the race, and despite Drissi hounding him through the remaining laps, Pickett held on to the lead and took the checkered ”ag on lap 40, winning by just three tenths of a second. On the podium, Pickett was effusive with his gratitude toward his family, his crew, and everyone who had a hand in this win, as well as to Drissi. My hat truly goes off to Tomy. He raced a really good race. He raced me clean.Ž Drissis race was almost “nished before it started, with his team discovering a leak in a transmission SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN TRANSAM PHOTOGreg Pickett celebrates winning at Sonoma Raceway more than 40 years after his rst Trans Am victory at the track.TRANS | 5 Alonso paces Le Mans test dayLast WEC race over 6 hours until SebringFernando Alonso got his “rst 24 Hours of Le Mans off to a great start by setting the fastest lap of the day at the of“cial test day ahead of next weekends race, round 2 of the WEC Super Season. The Spaniard set a 3:19.066 lap around the 13.6km Circuit des 24 Heures in the No. 8 Toyota TS050 HYBRID, “nishing the day 0.6 seconds ahead of the nearest LMP1 rival. The two Toyotas were split by the No. 3 Rebellion Racing R13-Gibson which “nished second quickest, with Mathias Beche setting a 3:19.680, which was .328 seconds ahead of the No.7 Toyota of Kamui Kobayashi. The car was perfect from the outset,Ž Alonso said. I familiarized myself with the circuit as I had only done it in a simulator, not in real life. It was a lot of fun out there, and this circuit is beautiful, especially for this type of car. Its even better than Spa which reminded me of F1. This car was de“nitely designed for the Le Mans circuit.Ž Another previous Formula 1 champion, SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN FIA WEC PHOTOThe No. 8 Toyota Gazoo Racing TS0650 HYBRID.MANS | 5 The Freshwater “shing forecast for the second week of June gives anglers a super new moon phase and an ideal rainy season weather forecast. June “shing, or any months “shing conditions, doesnt get better than well have it this week „ July also has a super new moon this year. The super new moon occurs Wednesday and the lunar perigee 28 hours later on Thursday. This will produce the highest solar energy spike periods weve seen all year, causing “sh and all wildlife to operate at high speeds for longer periods. The super moon effects will occur starting Monday and build intensity during daily overhead periods, culminating Wednesday and Thursday with four to “ve hour feeding periods which will reach a 10-rating on both days. Water temperatures are still below the maximum range of 85 degrees so dissolved oxygen rates are still adequate to enable “sh to feed-at-will when their bodys metabolisms reach top speed this week during lunar overhead and underfoot daily periods. The weather forecast could not be any better considering the fact were in our annual rainy season. Wind direction and speeds will be ideal „ south to southeast at 6-8 miles-per-hour. Cloud cover percentages „ clouds 60 percent and sunshine 40 percent, wave-action and surface noise both ideal at 6-12 inch waves. If there is a negative in this weeks forecast it will be the lack of wind today and Monday. A lack of wind always means a lack of pressure change. My worst “shing days have always been when there is no wind during the rainy season weather pattern.

Best Fishing Days: Tuesday through Thursday will be the best days of this year. However Julys super new moon, which will be even stronger, might produce even better. The Major Fishing Period: The moon is overhead today at 10:33 a.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 6-7 from 9 a.m. to solar noon which occurs at 1:25 p.m. By the midweek the rating tops-out at 9-10. For the next “ve days this 4.5 hour period will remain constant, but the peak period will occur as wind picks up and pressure rises. Today I expect pressure to rise near the beginning of this period, from 9-10 a.m. Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The Minor Fishing Period: The moonset occurs today at 5:06 p.m. and the sunset at 8:21 p.m. and will create a feed rating of 5-6 from 5-9 p.m. Daily this period moves later by one hour.

You always want to drive as much as possible and be able to leave the pit with new tires to explore the potential of the car but you have to stay focused on the agenda of the session. I cant wait to move forward because we still have some improving to do.Ž The LMGTE Pro category was hard fought with Ford leading the way at the end of the morning session. However it was Porsche who came out on top at the end of the day with Patrick Pilet posting a 3:52.551 just before the session prematurely due to a red ”ag less than two minutes before the checkered ”ag was due to be waved. To be honest we werent completely happy as we felt we had some time still to “nd but were going in the right direction,Ž Pilet said. We cant match the Fords on top speed so we cant pass them, even if were good in the quick corners like the Porsche Curves, so weve still got some work to do to “nd the best compromise on set up. Its the “rst time the American part of the Porsche GT Team has come here to Le Mans and its all new for the mechanics with a lot of pressure. Theyve worked hard all day so its a good reward for them.Ž The pink No. 93 Porsche 911 RSR of Pilet was just .096 seconds ahead of the sister car, the No. 91 911 of Gianmaria Bruni, which was the quickest of the cars racing in the WEC and “ghting for the FIA world title. The four Ford GTs “lled the next four slots on the time sheets with the No. 67 Ford GT third quickest with Andy Priaulx setting a 3:53.008 lap. In LMP2 it was the No. 31 DragonSpeed ORECA which topped the timesheets with Nathanael Berthon who set the 3:55.970 lap to put the American team ahead of the 19 other class rivals on the grid. The second placed car, the No. 48 IDEC Sport ORECA of Paul MANSFROM PAGE 1line just 30 minutes before the green ”ag was shown. In an amazing show of how a team can work under pressure, a new line was constructed and “tted to the car, and Drissi made the grid with seconds to spare. In a show of respect, Pickett told Drissis team that he would not start the race until they made it to the grid. The mutual admiration and respect that Drissi and Pickett have for each other was demonstrated further on the podium, with banter and antics that had the crowd roaring with laughter. In consolation, Drissi did take the fastest lap honors, with a lap time of 1:38.641, which was only one tenth faster than Picketts fastest lap.

The News Wire Sunday, June 10, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER More evacuations ordered near SW Colorado wildfireSee page 2 SINGAPORE „ President Donald Trump cast his Tuesday summit with North Koreas Kim Jong Un as a onetime shotŽ for the autocratic leader to ditch his nuclear weapons and enter the community of nations, saying he would know within moments if Kim is serious about the talks. Trump said Saturday he was embarking on a mission of peace,Ž as he departed the Group of Seven meeting in Canada to ”y to the summit site in Singapore. Saying he has a clear objective in mindŽ to convince Kim to abandon his nuclear program in exchange for unspeci“ed protectionsŽ from the U.S., Trump acknowledged that the direction of the high-stakes meeting is unpredictable, adding it will always be spur of the moment.Ž Its unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel con“dent,Ž he told reporters. I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity and he wont have that opportunity again.Ž Its a one-time shot and I think its going to work out very well,Ž he said. The Trump-Kim meeting be the “rst between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader. Unlike traditional summits between heads of state, where most of the work is completed in advance of a photo-op, U.S. of“cials say the only thing certain ahead of these talks will be their unpredictability. Raising expectations in advance of the meeting, Trump said the outcome will rely heavily on his own instincts. Trump casts NKorea summit as one-time shot for KimBy CATHERINE LUCEY and ZEKE MILLERASSOCIATED PRESSKABUL, Afghanistan „ The Talibans announcement Saturday of a temporary cease-“re did more than offer hope in war-weary Afghanistan for a quiet Eid al-Fitr, one of the most important holidays in the Islamic year. It also added momentum „ however tenuous „ to efforts to start a peace process that could “nally end nearly 17 years of “ghting. Two days after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani declared an eight-day pause in hostilities against the Taliban beginning June 12, at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, the insurgent group made a reciprocal pledge to cease “ghting government forces for three of those days. The decision was made in order to make Eid days and nights happy for the people of Afghanistan,Ž the group said in a statement. The Taliban said that the cease-“re would not apply to U.S.-led NATO forces and that it would continue to defend itself against attacks. The group continued offensive operations in the hours before the announcement too, with Afghan defense of“cials saying Saturday that Taliban attacks had killed 40 members of the security forces in northern and western Afghanistan in the preceding 24 hours. But by the intractably violent standards of Afghanistan, the Talibans “rst cease-“re pledge was cause for hope, and the timing seemed to present an opening for talks to prolong the break in hostilities. That the Taliban chose their unilateral cease“re to coincide with the Afghan governments announcement is a cautious step toward public cooperation with the government on peace,Ž said Ahmad Shuja, an Afghan analyst and editor-in-chief of the Georgetown Public Policy Review.A holiday cease-fire raises hopes for a fresh start at peace talks in AfghanistanBy SHASHANK BENGALI and SULTAN FAIZYLOS ANGELES TIMESWASHINGTON „ Of“cials say they need $6 million in federal money to prevent pockets of land around Redwood National Park from being used for private interests. The Everglades National Park needs $2.5 million for the same purpose. And on a more local level, communities need federal money to help create baseball “elds and smaller parks. Theres a fund for all that, and vulnerable House Republicans are feeling pressure to make sure that money keeps coming in „ permanently. Started in 1965, the fund that uses money from offshore oil drilling to protect and create national and local parks has to be renewed by the end of September, or the money will no longer be available. The fund protects national parks by buying up pockets of private land in and around the parks, which could otherwise be used for private development, as well as matching state and local funds to create local parks. The plan to make funding permanent now has 227 House co-sponsors, including members of both political parties. Thats nine more than a House majority. The blueprint was approved by the Senate in 2016, but has not been brought to a vote in the House. A Senate version of the bill was introduced by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., last year and has 12 co-sponsors. To help push the cause, the League of Conservation Voters, which promotes environmental protection, plans to spend $1 million for digital and online ad campaigns targeting Republicans who have not yet signed on to the bill. The “rst round of targets are Reps. Mimi Walters, R-Calif.; Steve Knight, R-Calif.; Vern Buchanan, R-Fla.; and Keith Rothfus, R-Pa. All are regarded as vulnerable this fall. These are people who are out of step with the rest of their district on the LA MALBAIE, Quebec „ Exiting a world summit with characteristic bravado, President Donald Trump delivered a stark warning Saturday to Americas trading partners not to counter his decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Despite his sharp differences with U.S. allies, the president insisted he has a great relationshipŽ with his foreign counterparts. If they retaliate, theyre making a mistake,Ž Trump declared before departing the annual Group of Seven summit in Canada for his meeting with North Koreas Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday. Trumps abbreviated stay at this Quebec resort saw him continuing the same type of tough talk on trade as when he departed the White House, accusing the summits host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, of being indignant.Ž The summit came during an ongoing trade dispute with China and served as a precursor to his unprecedented meeting with Kim, in which he has sought to extend a hand to the Asian autocrat who has long bedeviled the international order. His message from Quebec to Singapore is that he is going to meld the industrial democracies to his will „ and bring back Russia,Ž said Steve Bannon, Trumps former campaign and White House adviser. Bannon said China is now on notice that Trump will not back down from even allies complaints in his goal of America First.Ž Speaking on Saturday during a rare news Fund to protect national parks, drastically underfundedTrump delivers warning on trade as he leaves G-7 summitBy KATE IRBYMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAUBy CATHERINE LUCEY, ROB GILLIES and KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESS G-7 | 4 PARKS | 4 SUMMIT | 2 CEASE-FIRE | 4 FILE PHOTO PROVIDEDAerial view of Florida Everglades AP PHOTOSIn this combination of le photos, U.S.President Donald Trump, left, in the Oval Oce of the White House in Washington on May16, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in a meeting with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in in Panmunjom, South Korea, on April27.

And if I think it wont happen, Im not going to waste my time. I dont want to waste his time,Ž Trump said. This is a leader who really is an unknown personality,Ž Trump added of Kim. People dont know much about him. I think that hes going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside.Ž The Kim sit-down comes as Trumps combative style of diplomacy has been on stark display this weekend in Canada during the annual Group of Seven summit. Tensions ”ared between Trump and U.S. allies over his protectionist economic policies and decisions to exit the Iran nuclear deal and Paris climate accord. After cutting short his participation over the icy reception, Trump veered within hours from espousing a great relationship with the U.S. allies to tweeting that his host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, had been Very dishonest & weakŽ in post-summit remarks. He cited Trudeaus comments as a reason to withdraw from the G-7s of“cial statement, underscoring the unpredictable nature of negotiations with the American president. As he looks to the Kim meeting, Trump is taking a high-stakes risk in hopes of containing the increasingly challenging national security threats from North Koreas advanced nuclear and ballistic missile programs. Seeing Nobel Peace Prize laurels and eyeing potential to show up his critics at home and abroad, Trump is granting Kim the international legitimacy hes long sought in hopes of securing a legacy-de“ning accord. He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great,Ž Trump said. Thats why I feel positive, because it makes so much sense.Ž Trump also praised the North Koreans, saying they have been really working very well with usŽ during preparations for the summit, even though Trump had canceled the summit last month following a recent period of what he called tremendous anger and open hostilityŽ from the North Korean government. But then Trump did a quick pivot, signaling almost immediately after scrapping the meeting that he was open to going ahead with it after all. Delegations from both countries then launched into a frenetic period of negotiations that are expected to culminate with Tuesdays meeting. So far, so good. Were going to have to see what happens. I very much look forward to it,Ž Trump said. Still, questions remain about what a deal on the Norths nuclear weapons could look like. Trump has said he believes Kim would agree to denuclearization „ and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday he had received Kims personal assurances to that effect „ but the two countries have offered differing visions of what that would entail. Despite Kims apparent eagerness for a summit with Trump, there are doubts that he would fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as his guarantee of survival. U.S. defense and intelligence of“cials have assessed the North to be on the threshold of having the capability to strike anywhere in the continental U.S. with a nuclear-tipped missile „ a capacity that Trump and other U.S. of“cials have said they would not tolerate. Trump reiterated his promise Saturday that the U.S. will watch over and well protectŽ Kim and his government in return for him giving up the nuclear program. He also indicated that South Korea, China and Japan would be prepared to invest in the North to boost its besieged economy. SUMMITFROM PAGE 1President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have one sure fan rooting for the success of their summit Tuesday: former basketball star Dennis Rodman. I will be flying to Singapore for the historical Summit,Ž Rodman posted on Twitter. Ill give whatever support is needed to my friends, realDonaldTrump and Marshall Kim Jong Un.Ž Rodman has traveled to North Korea repeatedly and probably has met with the reclusive dictator more often than any other American. His spokesman, Christopher Volo, said in March that Kim asked Rodman about Trump before the businessman announced his candidacy for the White House and he had a lot of respect for the future president at the time.Ž To all Americans and the rest of the world Im honored to call POTUS a friend,Ž Rodman said on Twitter Friday, saying digital currency PotCoin and Prince Marketing are paying for the trip. Hes one of the best negotiators of all time and Im looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit.ŽDENNIS RODMAN TO CHEER MY FRIENDS TRUMP AND KIM IN SINGAPOREBy STEVE GEIMANNBLOOMBERG NEWS DURANGO, Colo.

The area is about 8 miles north of Durango. The Durango Herald reported more than 1,600 other homes have already been evacuated. Authorities said no homes had been damaged or destroyed so far. The “re has burned nearly 14 square miles. Fire“ghters had built containment lines on about 10 percent of the perimeter. More than 680 “re“ghters and several aircraft were on scene, and a Type 1 incident command team „ assigned to the largest “res „ took charge Saturday morning. The National Weather Service issued a red ”ag warning for most of Colorado on Saturday, including Durango, signifying high “re danger because of gusty winds and low humidity. Temperatures were in the high 80s in Durango by the afternoon. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment also issued an air quality alert because of heavy smoke in the area. The blaze started June 1 in the San Juan National Forest but the cause has not been determined. It comes amid a severe drought in the Four Corners area where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. U.S. Highway 550 north of Durango was periodically closed Saturday to accommodate the evacuations and because of heavy “re“ghter activity.More evacuations ordered near SW Colorado wildfire PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE DURANGO HERALD VIA APSmoke rises from a stand of trees smoldering from the 416 Fire west of U.S. Highway 550 on Friday, near Hermosa, Colo.

The 2-inch sculpture is an exceedingly rare example of “gurative art from the Holy Land during the 9th century B.C. „ a period associated with biblical kings. Exquisitely preserved but for a bit of missing beard, nothing quite like it has been found before. While scholars are certain the stern bearded “gure wearing a golden crown represents royalty, they are less sure which king it symbolizes, or which kingdom he may have ruled. Archaeologists unearthed the diminutive “gurine in 2017 during excavations at a site called Abel Beth Maacah, located just south of Israels border with Lebanon, near the modern-day town of Metula. Nineteenth-century archaeologists identi“ed the site, then home to a village called Abil alQamh, with the similarly named city mentioned in the Book of Kings. During the 9th century B.C., the ancient town was situated in a liminal zone between three regional powers: the Aramean kingdom based in Damascus to the east, the Phoenician city of Tyre to the west, and the Israelite kingdom, with its capital in Samaria to the south. 1 Kings 15:20 mentions Abel Beth Maacah in a list of cities attacked by the Aramean King Ben Hadad in a campaign against the Israelite kingdom. This location is very important because it suggests that the site may have shifted hands between these polities, more likely between Aram-Damascus and Israel,Ž said Hebrew University archaeologist Naama Yahalom-Mack, who has headed the joint dig with Californias Azusa Paci“c University since 2013. Yahalom-Macks team was digging through the ”oor of a massive Iron Age structure in the summer of 2017 when a volunteer who arrived for the day struck pay dirt. The layer where the head was found dates to the 9th century B.C., the epoch associated with the rival biblical kingdoms of Israel and Judah. In a rare move, archaeologists and curators at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem rushed to put the piece on public display. A detailed report is set for publication in the June edition of the journal Near Eastern Archaeology. Eran Arie, the Israel Museums curator of Iron Age and Persian archaeology, said the discovery was one of a kind. In the Iron Age, if theres any “gurative art, and there largely isnt, its of very low quality. And this is of exquisite quality.Ž The royal “gurine is made of faience, a glasslike material that was popular in jewelry and small human and animal “gurines in ancient Egypt and the Near East. The color of the face is greenish because of this copper tint that we have in the silicate paste,Ž Yahalom-Mack said. But a crucial clue for identifying it as a Near Eastern monarch was its very interesting hairdo,Ž she said. The bearded “gures hair is pulled back in thick locks that cover the ears, and is held in place by a striped diadem of gold. Its hairstyle looks similar to the way ancient Egyptians depicted neighboring Near Eastern peoples in art. The guy kind of represents the generic way Semitic people are described,Ž she said. Because Carbon-14 dating cannot give a more exact date for the statues creation other than sometime in the 9th century, the “eld of potential candidates is large. Yahalom-Mack posited it could be kings Ben Hadad or Hazael of Damascus, Ahab or Jehu of Israel, or Ithobaal of Tyre, all characters appearing in the biblical narrative. Were only guessing here, its like a game,Ž she said. Its like a hello from the past, but we dont know anything else about it.Ž As scholars debate whether the head was a stand-alone piece or part of a larger statue, the Hebrew University team is set to restart digging this month at the spot where the mystery kings head was found.Sculpted head of mystery biblical king found in IsraelBy ILAN BEN ZIONASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOThis Monday photo shows a detailed gurine of a kings head on display at the Israel Museum, dating to biblical times, and found last year near Israels northern border with Lebanon.

She was 95. Turgel died Thursday, Britains chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, said on Twitter. The news triggered tributes from some of the people the Polish native touched in the decades she shared her World War II experiences, including witnessing the horrors of the Nazi camps at Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen. After World War II, Turgel married one of Bergen-Belsens British liberators, Norman Turgel, earning the nickname The Bride of Belsen.Ž Her wedding dress, made from parachute silk, is part of the collection of the Imperial War Museum in London. Turgel attended Britains annual Holocaust remembrance event two months ago, sitting in a wheelchair with a blanket draped over her knees. My story is the story of one survivor, but it is also the story of 6 million who perished,Ž she said at the event in Londons Hyde Park. Maybe thats why I was spared „ so my testimony would serve as a memorial like that candle that I light, for the men, women and children who have no voice.Ž Born in Krakow, Poland as Gena Gold“nger on Feb. 1, 1923, Turgel and her family were forced to move into a Jewish ghetto with only a sack of potatoes, some ”our and a few belongings in late 1941. One brother was shot by SS police and another disappeared after trying to escape, according to the Holocaust Educational Trust in London. A sister of hers was shot while trying to smuggle food into a labor camp. In January 1945, Turgel and her mother were forced onto a death march from Auschwitz to Buchenwald, leaving her remaining sister behind. They were forced to abandon her remaining sister when they were ld. In February 1945, they arrived at Bergen-Belsen in Germany. It was in a hospital at Bergen-Belsen, where Turgel arrived in February 1945, that the 22-year-old Turgel cared for 15-yearold Anne Frank as she was dying from typhus. I washed her face, gave her water to drink, and I can still see that face, her hair and how she looked,Ž Turgel once told the BBC. Turgel published a memoir, I Light a Candle,Ž in 1987 and kept retelling her story in schools across Britain until the end of her life. Gena dedicated her life to sharing her testimony to hundreds of thousands in schools across the country,Ž Her story was dif“cult to hear „ and dif“cult for her to tell, but no one who heard her speak will ever forget,Ž Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he met Turgel at the Hyde Park event in April and was inspired by her lifelong commitment to educating people about the horrors of the Holocaust.Ž Let us hope for a better future where anti-Semitism and all hatred should be demolished, shouldnt be tolerated,Ž Turgel said at the time. And I do beg you, dont forget those who are less fortunate than yourselves.Ž Holocaust survivor consoler of Anne Frank, diesBy DANICA KIRKAASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON (AP) „ A far-right lawmaker from the Netherlands joined thousands of people in central London Saturday to demand freedom for a British commentator who was jailed for contempt of court after he broadcast outside a criminal trial for the second time.

He was arrested May 25 after livestreaming from outside a child sexual exploitation trial. Reporting restrictions were in place for the trial to protect jurors impartiality „ a common practice in Britain. Robinson previously was convicted of contempt of court in May 2017 for broadcasting at a rape trial and given a three-month suspended sentence. The judge in that case told him that he would be imprisoned if he committed a further contempt of court by similar actions.Ž Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in jail after he pleaded guilty on May 29 to contempt of court and breaching the terms of his suspended sentence.

BLUE HILL, Maine (AP) „ Drivers: Better watch out for caterpillars in one Maine town. The Maine Department of Transportation posted an alert for two days that the insects were making things slippery along Route 15, or Mines Road, in Blue Hill. As of Thursday, the department said the incident has been cleared.Ž WMTW-TV reports the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry said the caterpillars are wandering as they eat oak tree leaves. Officials said the main culprit is the forest tent caterpillar. They should finish feeding toward the end of June. Until then, people should expect to see them wandering. The department says other caterpillar culprits are the Browntail moth and gypsy moth.ODD NEWS Wandering caterpillars make for slippery roadDear Mr. Berko: On your advice, I didnt buy stock in GoPro in 2015, when it was trading at $56. And about a year later, it fell to $8. But as it recovered and rose to $16, my stockbroker had me buy 1,000 shares. It immediately fell to $10. I sold it and took a 6-point loss. Now its about $5, and hes advising me to buy another 1,000 shares. We both think it has “nally hit the bottom. What do you think? Also, what do you think of Southern Co., an electric utility that you recommended when it was trading very close to $50 a share last year? „ GL, Vancouver, Wash. Dear GL: Woodman Labs, for nearly a decade, made mounted and wearable cameras and accessories that were initially called capture devices. In February 2014, the name was changed to GoPro. In late June of that year, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays and Citibank took GoPro (GPRO-$4.89) public at $24 a share. Within three months, tens of thousands of stupids, “guring that this was the next-best thing to a cure for nocturia, had run this stock to $96 a share! The hype was exciting, and American investors „ the biggest saps for the newest, trendiest dumb toys, such as the Fitbit „ were hooked. (Perhaps Fitbit and GoPro ought to merge.) This newfangled toy temporarily enjoyed the combined allure of the Hula-Hoop, the Pet Rock and the Tamagotchi. Initially, Americans, Samoans, Mongolians and Slovakians couldnt get enough GoPro products and accessories. So GPRO posted record revenues in 2014 ($1.4 billion) and record revenues again ($1.6 billion) in 2015. But the success of the action camera did not happen in a vacuum. Certainly, competitors „ e.g., Samsung, LG and Kodak „ recognized that this could be a pro“table market if their products were attractively priced. And they were. Samsungs Gear 360, LGs 360 Cam and Kodaks Pixpro 360 were munching on GPROs sales. Then, in 2016, the fecal matter hit the rotary impeller; revenues crashed to $1.1 billion, and GPRO was forced to report an aching $419 million loss. These losses were helped by several unsuccessful product launches and cost overruns, a result of a large, unwieldy product portfolio. Management was forced to reduce its inventory of older versions of its mountable and wearable cameras by discounting its product. Even though revenues were 8 percent higher in 2017 than they were in 2016 and even though operating costs fell by 51 percent last year (management slashed its research and development and its sales and marketing budgets), GPRO reported a 2017 loss of $126 million. In the “rst week of November, the companys founder and CEO, Nick Woodman, sold all of his stock „ 706,980 shares „ at $9.22 a share. Im sure he knows that GPRO expects to lose millions this year and that the severe cuts in R&D, as well as sales and marketing, may hurt the companys progress and delay any pro“ts until 2021. There are 14 brokerage that follow GPRO. Two of them have buyŽ recommendations. Ten have holdŽ recommendations. And two have sellŽ recommendations. GPRO has 1,550 employees, no long-term debt, 145 million shares outstanding and $170 million in working capital. Though a 1,000-share purchase would be a rank speculation, there might be a few points pro“t in the coming 18 months if speculators, hedge funds, traders and manipulators were to take short-term positions in the stock. Apple and Xiaomi (and some say Taco Bell) are reported to be interested in buying GoPro. Southern Co. (SO-$46) is one of the largest utilities in the nation, with 2017 revenues of $22.6 billion and a $2.38 dividend that yields 5.1 percent. And management has increased that dividend for nearly 25 consecutive years. There are 17 analysts who cover the stock. Six have buyŽ recommendations. Ten recommend a hold. And two say to sell. Its a good income stock, and dividend increases should compare favorably with in”ation. With 4.6 million electricity customers and 4.5 million gas customers in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida, SO has modest long-term appeal and is a good income stock.

(AP) „ Health of“cials say a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon has sickened 60 people in “ve Midwestern states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Caito Foods LLC on Friday recalled pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fruit medleys containing at least one of those melons that were produced at its facility in Indianapolis. It says the “ve states where people were sickened are Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. The CDC says the fruit was also distributed to stores in Georgia, Kentucky and North Carolina. It was sold in clear plastic clamshell containers at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owens, Sprouts, Trader Joes, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods/Amazon. Of“cials say people should throw away or return recalled products. The CDC says 31 of the people sickened have been hospitalized, but there have been no deaths reported. Those sickened often develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food. The illness often lasts 4 to 7 days.Salmonella linked to pre-cut melon environment,Ž said Alex Taurel, the Leagues deputy legislative director. The group plans to add more names to the list before September. Chris Jusuf, Knights spokesman, told McClatchy that his boss became a co-sponsor on the permanent funding bill this week. Knight voted against a non-binding resolution to make the fund permanent in 2016. AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Ryan favors the plan but did not comment about making the formula permanent. As an avid hunter and angler, Speaker Ryan believes the (fund should continue) to ensure current and future public lands are in fact accessible to the public,Ž Strong said. We have con“dence that the diverse interests share that goal and will work cooperatively toward a solution.Ž Sally Dionne, spokeswoman for Buchanan, said Buchanan would vote to make the fund permanent if it got a vote on the ”oor, but did not respond to questions about why he has not co-sponsored the legislation. She called the League of Conservation Voters a highly partisan Democrat organizationŽ and said the attack was misleading.Ž Vern has a proven record in support of environmental priorities important to his district, such as combating red tide, opposing offshore drilling and protecting endangered wildlife,Ž Dionne said. Neither Walters nor Rothfus returned requests for comment. The fund was last approved in 2015 for three years after a “ght by a group of conservatives who wanted to overhaul the program. They argued at the time that the fund should have less to do with the government acquiring more land and do more to protect lands already in its possession. There are many other parks awaiting millions of dollars in funding, including the Mojave Trails National Monument and the Mailliard Working Forest in California and Wakulla Caves in Florida. The current bill allows for maximum funding of $900 million per year, but the latest budget bill funded the parks protection program at less than half of that: $425 million for the year. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who serves on the appropriations subcommittee that deals with the fund, said Tuesday she supports funding closer to $900 million but that she wasnt included in recent budget discussions on the issue. It has historically been funded at well below $900 million.PARKSFROM PAGE 1 Many Afghans believe that the governments cease-“re pledge came at the urging of the United States, which is looking for a way out of the war after sending thousands more troops last year to bolster Afghan forces. A spokesman for the High Peace Council, the Afghan body that handles outreach to insurgents, said the government welcomed the Taliban announcement. We hope this will be the beginning of Afghan-led and Afghan-owned direct peace negotiations between the government and the Taliban,Ž said the spokesman, Sayed Ehsan Taheri. We hope trust is built on both sides for the extension of the cease-“re for peace talks and negotiations.Ž The Talibans leadership based in neighboring Pakistan „ not wanting to be seen by their rank-and-“le “ghters as negotiating with the enemy „ has publicly accused the government of not being serious about peace and of being a stooge of U.S.-led foreign forces. Yet even as the Taliban have wrested more territory from the government „ 35 percent of Afghans live in areas controlled or contested by insurgents, according to a recent report by the Pentagon inspector general „ the growing toll of their attacks on civilians has weakened their claims of aiming to liberate Afghans from what they describe as U.S. military occupation. Supporters of the Islamic State militant group also have carried out deadly attacks separate from the Taliban.CEASEFIREFROM PAGE 1conference, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. He reiterated his longstanding view that the U.S. has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, Were like the piggy bank that everybodys robbing and that ends.Ž He said U.S. farmers had been harmed by tariffs and other barriers and warned that U.S. trading partners would need to provide him with more favorable terms. Its going to stop or well stop trading with them,Ž he said. Trump cited progress on reaching an agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, saying the “nal outcome would lead either to an improved trade deal or separate pacts with the two U.S. neighbors. Trump said he was discussing two types of sunset provisions in which any of the countries could leave the deal. A Canadian of“cial said the leaders discussed accelerating the pace of the talks. Prior to his arrival on Friday, the president injected additional controversy by suggesting that the G-7 offer a seat at the table to Russia, which was ousted from the group in 2014. Trump said Saturday that re-admitting Russia to the elite club would be an asset,Ž telling reporters, were looking for peace in the world.Ž Trump said he had not spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a while. Discussing Russias absence, Trump made the vague comment that something happened a while ago where Russia is no longer in. I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in.Ž In fact, Russia was expelled from what was then the G-8 after its invasion and annexation of Crimea and its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine. Trump placed the blame on his predecessor, President Barack Obama. He was the one who let Crimea get away „ that was during his administration,Ž he said, adding, Obama can say all he wants, but he allowed Russia to take Crimea. I may have had a much different attitude.Ž Its not clear what Trump thought Obama should have done to prevent Putin from sending in Russian troops to seize the Black Sea peninsula from neighboring Ukraine. Trump departed the annual G-7 gathering after showing up late for a breakfast on gender equity and he missed sessions on climate change, clean energy and ocean protection. He left before any resolution was announced on the traditional joint statement from the seven industrialized nations in the group, which in addition to the U.S. and Canada includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan. Trumps recent moves, building on 18 months of nationalist policy-making, leave him out of step with the globally minded organization and prompted speculation that the group could fracture into something more like the G-6 plus one.Ž A key question was whether the seven countries could agree on a joint statement of priorities at the conclusion of the meeting. Macron said Thursday on Twitter, The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be.Ž Trump said Friday he thinks the group will produce a joint statement. In public, Trump bantered easily with his fellow leaders, but the meeting came at a tense moment in the relationships, with allies steaming over Trumps new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. Leading up to the meetings, Trump, Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron had suggested the potential for a tough tone, though they were cordial in faceto-face meetings. Alluding to the tensions as he sat with Macron on Friday, Trump said: Weve had, really, a very good relationship, very special. A lot of people wrote a couple of things that werent quite true. A little bit accurate, perhaps. We have a little test every once in a while when it comes to trade.Ž With Trudeau, Trump joked that Justin has agreed to cut all tariffs and all trade barriers between Canada and the United States.Ž Macron said he and Trump held open and directŽ discussions, adding that he thought there was a way to get a win-winŽ outcome on trade, though details remained unclear.G7FROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump boards Air Force One for a trip to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Saturday, at Canadian Forces Base Bagotville, in Canada.

New York Times Sunday Crossword No. 0603 Name That CompanyWhen you think of luxury, you should think of my (long and complicated) name. Im the result of a 1987 merger, but many of my businesses were launched long ago. One of my wine businesses took shape in 1593, for example. Based in France, Im a purveyor of wine, champagne, cognac, fashion, leather goods, perfumes, cosmetics, watches, jewelry and more. Brand names under my roof include Chateau dYquem, Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot, Christian Dior, Fendi, Givenchy, Bulgari, Kenzo, Celine, Hublot, TAG Heuer and Sephora, among many, many others. My market value recently topped $175 billion. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. pay $15 to buy and another $15 to sell. They will need to have gained more than 15 percent just to turn a profit. So what should you do? Well, it can help to use a brokerage that has low commission costs (perhaps $5 to $7 per trade, or less), as many do these days. Also, aim to keep your commission costs at 2 percent or less per trade, if possible. If your brokerage charges $20, then try to invest at least $1,000 each time you buy stock. (Multiply the commission by 50 to see what its 2 percent of.) If your brokerage charges just $7, your minimum would be $350. You can always save up money until you have enough. If its hard for you to come up with hundreds of dollars for each stock purchase, know that you can also invest small sums regularly through direct investing plans (Drips), which let you buy stock directly through companies, bypassing brokerages altogether. Many major companies offer Drips. If you can type this long address into your browser, you can learn much more about Drips: your-complete-guide-to-dripinvesting.aspx.The Motley Fool TakeDigital Real EstateYou may not think of real estate as an exciting technology play, but if you buy into the real estate investment trust (REIT) Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), thats exactly what youre getting. When you post a message or photo to your favorite social media site, that data must be stored somewhere. Digital Realty owns and operates data centers, which are facilities designed to reliably and securely house servers and other network equipment. The company leases out space to tenants that include Facebook, IBM, Verizon and Uber „ in fact, Digital Realty has more than 2,300 customers renting its more than 32 million square feet of space. Over time, as data has become more sophisticated and voluminous, it requires even more storage space. The growing need for data centers isnt expected to slow down. Indeed, the number of internet-connected devices is expected to grow by 82 percent over the next two years, according to research from Gartner, and the markets for data-heavy tech such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality and artificial intelligence are long-tailed growth opportunities that could cause the data center industry to multiply in size several times over. Digital Realty has grown tremendously over the past decade or so, and theres reason to believe that the growth still is in the relatively early stages. Investors can get all that potential along with a dividend that recently yielded 3.8 percent, and that should grow more over time. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentDrained Battery My dumbest investment? I lost 100 percent of the money I put into a battery company. It made the biggest batteries in the world, mainly for ships. How could I go wrong, right? Well, I didnt look at the company closely or look up any news on it. All I listened to was the advice to invest in it. It was a Chinese company that cooked its books and had been in trouble with the SEC. Then, when the Chinese stock market crashed, my money went down the drain, permanently. The company no longer exists. Now Im more careful, to say the least. I follow Fool stock recommendations, but mainly just to get ideas of companies to investigate. I do a lot of my own reading on the companies to learn what they make, what they contribute to the world, whether people really want or need the products, whether they might survive for the long term, etc. Now Ive been making about 50 percent a year. My investment strategy at the moment is to take chances on stocks that I think will grow briskly, but when I do so, I invest the same amount in stalwart blue chip companies, too, or in a mutual fund with bonds. „ L.W., Saratoga Springs, New York The Fool Responds: Youve improved your investing process immensely, though 50 percent returns are not normally sustainable. Balancing your riskier investments with less risky ones is smart. Differing OpinionsQWhen Im reading financial periodicals or Motley Fool articles or am watching CNBC, I often see different opinions on various stocks, with some experts saying buy and others saying sell. Whats up with that? „ L.S., Victoria, TexasAAnyone evaluating a company can come away with a different opinion about its prospects and likely trajectory. Even the best stock analysts and investors are sometimes wrong. Note, too, that each can be different in what theyre looking for „ some want undervalued stocks, while others may be willing to take more chances, hoping for a bigger payoff. Its good to gather different opinions, consider various arguments, do your own research and ultimately make up your own mind.***QWith mutual funds, are index funds best for beginners (like me)? „ D.C., Riverside, California ALow-fee, broad-market index funds, such as those that track the S&P 500, are indeed perfect for most people „ beginners or not. An S&P 500 fund will have you instantly invested in 500 of Americas biggest companies. (Many of them have sizable overseas operations, too, giving you international diversification.) Broader funds, such as Vanguards Total Stock Market Index, include smaller and medium-sized companies, too, while total worldŽ indexes also include foreign companies. Seek index funds with low fees. Many charge less than 0.25 percent annually. Index funds should have you matching the performance of their underlying indexes. If you want to aim even higher, you might study and carefully choose a few individual companies in which to invest „ but doing well at that can take a lot of time, energy and skill. Its hard to beat the ease and results of simple index funds.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email tos SchoolThe Cost of CommissionsYou probably pay your brokerage a commission every time you buy or sell stocks, and that fee deserves some consideration. How much you pay per trade isnt a critical issue if you trade only a few times a year. But if you buy and sell stocks (or other securities) relatively frequently, the commissions can make a difference in your results. For example, imagine that you invest $200 in shares of Drive-Thru Dentistry Inc. (ticker: DRILZ), and you pay a $15 commission. Divide $15 by $200 and youll get 0.075, or 7.5 percent. That means youve invested $200, but at the same time you forfeited 7.5 percent of that value in commissions. If the shares rose 8 percent in the first year, youd barely break even, instead of realizing a meaningful gain. Frequent traders, such as day traders, can be hurt worse. For instance, if they buy and sell $200 worth of a stock in a day, theyll 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun /Sunday, June 10, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I tend to react poorly when someone pulls a prank on me. My reaction is usually anger, hurt or embarrassment, and I end up saying or doing things I later regret because emotion took over. My husband has always liked playing pranks, and my children have started to follow his lead. The pranks tend to be things like ice down the back of my shirt, bopping the end of a glass or bottle while drinking so it splashes in my face, snapping wet towels, etc. I dont like it, and I never do it to them. If I react, I am made out to be the bad guyŽ because I cant take a joke.Ž I feel guilty about the latest incident because when my l0-year-old daughter bopped a drink in my face, I slapped her across the face. When I apologized for responding that way, she said, Dad does it all the time.Ž I never get an apology from the pranksters. Is this normal? Are there others out there who dont like being the object of pranks? How do I get my family to understand that being subjected to these jokesŽ isnt funny to ME? „ UNAMUSED IN INDIANA DEAR UNAMUSED: Jokes at the expense of others can be funny, as long as EVERYONE AGREES that theyre funny. Because you have told your husband you not only dont nd his pranks amusing but nd them hurtful, I can only conclude that his sense of humor is sadistic. Further, it has set a poor example for the children. I wonder how your husband would feel if you informed him after a hard day that his accountant had called saying he owes $25,000 in back taxes. (Ho, ho!) Or if you poured a pitcher of ice water on him at 2 a.m. Would that be equally funnyŽ? I doubt it. Normally, I wouldnt stoop to that level, but this may be an exception. DEAR ABBY: I am writing because we are receiving some snide comments because of our daughters choice of college major. Shes majoring in dance. When people with college-age kids or grandkids nd out, you can see it in their expression or hear it in their tone of voice. Oh, really? Ummm, how nice.Ž Or worse, the condescending, How SWEET.Ž Our daughter has always been an honor student. Starting in high school she carried full loads of classes, extracurriculars, held jobs and was active in church. In college she has added dance company and sorority to her resume. I want these people to realize it takes guts to pursue her dream of becoming a dancer/choreographer and not major in something more conventional. We support her decision, and she already has her associates degree in a eld that will be useful as a backup. Why cant people understand that ne arts majors are brave, bold and passionate about their crafts? „ DANCERS MOM IN TEXAS DEAR DANCERS MOM: If you react to the comments in a positive way rather than become defensive, they would give you the opening to smile and tell these conventional thinkersŽ how proud you are of your daughters choice to pursue her dreams, that her courage in pursuing a eld as competitive as entertainment is more than niceŽ and you admire her for it.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, June 10, 2018 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) „ Viral videos of bloody “st“ghts and skirmishes between right-wing activists and self-described anti-fascists have drawn national attention to Portland, Oregon. Its a city of storied political activism that has struggled to keep the peace at dueling rallies representing a microcosm of the nations political division. Tensions erupted most recently when members of the so-called antifaŽ movement showed up at a march organized by a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer. As police tried to keep order, “st “ghts broke out in verdant downtown parks fringed with aspen trees and dotted with plaques honoring Portlands founders and veterans. Police made four arrests June 3. They have recently become a gathering place for dissent in this liberal city already known for weekly protests against federal land management policy, police brutality and transgender discrimination.Violent protests again draw attention to Portland THE OREGONIAN VIA AP, FILE PHOTOIn this June 3, le photo, photographers capture dueling demonstrations between anti-facists known as antifaŽ and a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer in downtown Portland, Ore. HONOLULU (AP) „ The National Park Service is working as fast as possible to reopen access to the USS Arizona Memorial after cracks were discovered last month on the ”oating concrete pier near the metal access ramp, of“cials said. Visitors to the memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu are taken on a 15-minute narrated tour of Battleship Row instead of the usual docking at the site, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Friday. Boat transportation to the pier was suspended in early May following the discovery of the cracks. The cracks turned out to be minor and the memorial is structurally sound, said Jay Blount, a spokesman for the World War II Valor in the Paci“c National Monument. With the discovery of the cracks, of“cials found that the pier had shifted nearly 3 feet away from the memorial, pulling on the access ramp and damaging an attachment bolt. The pier is held in place by chains and concrete blocks. The repairs to the pier could be simple, but the issue is complicated by the nature of the site, said Jacqueline Ashwell, superintendent of the national monument. Some of the solutions may involve the need to do new environmental compliance,Ž Ashwell said. Its not like you dig a big anchor into the ground. Youve got an archaeological site right next to it thats got the remains of over 900 men and the possibility of unexploded ordnance.Ž No timeline for repairs or a cost estimate has been set, Ashwell said. While visitors wont be allowed to disembark onto the white pier, Blount said there is still plenty for guests to experience. People can still learn more about Pearl Harbor, World War II in the Paci“c and pay tribute to those who served and sacri“ced,Ž Blount said.Repairs still for USS Arizona Memorial Helicopter hits wires and crashes into river Authorities: Man charged with murder in his mothers death Report: Downed power lines sparked deadly California fires Suspect shot after struggle with LAPD officers in hospitalOSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) „ Authorities say a helicopter hit power lines and crashed into a river in eastern Wisconsin. The Winnebago County Sheriffs Of“ce says the helicopter crashed into the Fox River Saturday near the Wisconsin Street Bridge in Oshkosh. Gary Lemiesz, of Oshkosh, told The Oshkosh Northwestern that he watched as a dark green helicopter ”ew east over the Fox River before turning back and ”ying west.

(AP) „ Authorities say a school guidance counselor found dead at her home in Mississippi had been decapitated and that her son is charged with murder. Stone County Coroner Wayne Flurry told news outlets Friday that the body of 51-year-old Sherry Johnson was discovered Wednesday at her house near Wiggins. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) „ State “re of“cials say Paci“c Gas & Electric power lines and equipment sparked a dozen wild“res that destroyed homes and killed at least 15 people last October in Californias wine country. The state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection on Friday announced results of its investigation into some of the wind-driven blazes that ravaged six Northern California counties. Falling trees or limbs hitting power lines were the main cause. Investigators said they found evidence of violations of state law in eight cases and referred them to county prosecutors. PG&E said it met state requirements by inspecting more than 2 million power poles and pruning about 1.4 million trees a year. The “res were part of a series that swept the region, killing 44 people and destroying 8,800 structures. LOS ANGELES (AP) „ A man in the custody of Los Angeles police was critically wounded Saturday after being shot during a struggle with of“cers inside a hospital exam room. The man had been arrested by gang of“cers on a felony charge and was at a police station when he suffered a medical emergency,Ž said Det. Meghan Aguilar, an LAPD spokeswoman. He was taken to White Memorial Medical Center in the Boyle Heights neighborhood. While the man was in an examination room „ adjacent to the hospitals emergency room „ he began struggling with two of“cers, Aguilar said. At least one of the of“cers opened “re, striking the suspect. The man was transported to another hospital with a trauma center and remained in critical condition Saturday, she said. Police did not immediately release the mans name or additional details about his arrest. Investigators were still working to determine the exact circumstances that led up to the shooting. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONFlurry says Johnsons remains had been there for several days, and were found by sheriffs deputies who were asked to check on her.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 10, 2018 Technology has transformed the tile industry. With inkjet printers, manufacturers can imitate not only the look of natural materials but also the texture and feel. And this manufacturing process cuts down the cost of production, which translates to more affordable prices. As a result, tile trends are shifting toward new textures, colors, shapes and patterns. Homeowners have more choices now than ever before! 1. Sophistication: black Black features continue to gain popularity because they lend themselves well to modern, sophisticated design. Black tiles of all shapes, from subway to hexagonal, are being paired with either a contrasting grout or black grout. And matte black “nishes are a new designer favorite. This year, were seeing lots of black tile in bathrooms and kitchens „ as backsplashes, ”ooring and even full walls. 2. Interest: patterns Tile is available in a variety of patterns that can add a hint of personality to any space. Homeowners are incorporating patterned tiles in small areas of interest, like bathroom sink backsplashes, and in bigger ways, like full-coverage accent walls. Consider turning your walk-in shower into an eye-catching art feature with patterned tile walls. Other popular spaces for patterned tile include the entryway, laundry room and kitchen. 3. Dimension: mixed There are many ways to mix tile, whether it be with size, texture, “nish or color. And this year, people have really taken to the concept. You could pair single-color tiles with boldly patterned ceramic squares, matte “nish tiles with glazed pieces, or non-textured tiles with textured tiles to add dimension. Or, you could mix three-dimensional tiles with classic subway tiles to add movement and interest to your surfaces. 4. Character: shapes Tile manufacturers are getting creative with shape, and existing luxury shapes have become easier to manufacture and distribute. As a result, the variety of shapes and cuts coming available is rapidly growing, driving trends 5 tile trends reshaping designBy LAUREN WHITEHOMEADVISOR METRO CREATIVE IMAGESTechnology has transformed the tile industry and homeowners have more choices now than ever before.TILE | 5 Sebring Shelly Sapp Interiors adno=3573350adno=3585522 See all the listings at: Always Going Above and Beyond!

Sunday, June 10, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C5 If there is anyone who can share some wisdom on the art of downsizing, its my friend Marsee. In the 41 years she and Mike have been married, they have moved a whopping 18 times. A few years ago, they decided it was time to downsize. So they sold their lovely 100-year-old Tudor home (featured in my book Rooms We LoveŽ) and bought a townhome just off of Kansas Citys historic Country Club Plaza. Marsee is thrilled with so many facets of their smaller home. With no yard to care for and a lot less house to keep up with, they have more time to explore all the city has to offer, from art exhibits to entertainment. Their neighborhood is in the center of it all, and they can walk to shopping, the gym, the library and area parks. While the outcome is usually satisfying, the process of downsizing can be painful. I asked Marsee to share some of her secrets. Heres her advice:Love it or leave itWhen you have a lot less space to live in, you have to make some tough decisions about what will follow you to your new home. Marsee didnt want the rooms in her new home to be packed full, so she made some tough choices early on, determined to only keep the furniture, artwork and accents she absolutely could not live without.Give your extra treasures to familyWhen Marsee and Mike started out as newlyweds, she remembers how family members helped them out“t their “rst homes, giving them furniture and other pieces that had been passed down through the generations. She wanted to do the same for her son and daughter-inlaw, and other family members. Once Todd and Brooke picked the family pieces they wanted for their own home, Marsee and Mike loaded them up in a 17-foot Penske truck they nicknamed Big Al and drove the furniture to Arizona. As Marsee shared the story of each piece, Brooke recorded it in a notebook. Now, Marsee says, the couple can start creating their own stories with the heirlooms.Rethink where your furnishing goSo often, we get in a rut with our decorating. For example, if a piece of art hung over your “replace mantel for years, you cant imagine it anywhere else. When she downsized, Marsee moved a lot of furnishing and accents to new places. The chairs and table that once “lled her kitchens breakfast nook are now library furniture in their home of“ce.Live in it before decoratingWhen Marsee “rst moved into the townhome, she thought she wanted a keep her decor very edited. This would be a change for this talented decorator, who has taught me so much about designing layered displays. Interestingly enough, after she lived in the townhome for a few months, she missed many of her old treasures, and the feel of more complex tableaus on her tables. She pulled some of her favorites out of storage and bought a few new pieces and got busy layering.Discover how to live in your smaller spaceMarsee and Mike love to entertain. But they were not going to be able to accommodate the same number of guests, in the same way, in their smaller townhome. So Marsee began to rethink how they entertained. Instead of having guests congregate in the kitchen or living room, Marsee decided to spread the party to the homes third level of“ce, coaxing guests up there by setting up food and drinks. This column was adapted from Mary Carol Garritys blog at nellhills. com. toward geometric, curved and edgy selections. Trending forms include arabesques, hexagons, octagons, diamonds and crosses. Some shapes can even be mixed for unique patterns. 5. Nature: woodŽ planks The availability of ceramic wood tiles in various plank sizes has a created a fever in the design industry. These tiles are being used in all areas of the home, but homeowners can really take advantage in the bathroom. Previously, it was risky to get that natural look in such a moist area. Real wood is not naturally moisture-resistant and it has to be appropriately sealed for such applications. These tiles can withstand moisture to the extent that theyre being installed right in the shower. Plus, theyre more affordable than the real thing! Take note that installing tile can be a dif“cult DIY project „ particularly when it involves the intricate shapes and patterns trending today. A professional will be able to help you navigate the latest looks and trends to create a look youll love within your budget. Just be sure to hire someone with a good reputation and a healthy amount of experience. This will ensure an attractive and long-lasting result.

These days artwork doesnt have to be traditional, like on a painted canvas. If youre looking for some alternatives, here are some of our top Design Recipes tips.DOFrame interesting mixed media elements, such as paper. Use black-and-white photography. Consider artwork that makes a statement such as an unusual or interesting print or image. Use mirrors, especially in smaller spaces. Mirrors can be a low-cost alternative. Use oversized prints to make a bold and dramatic decor statement.DONTMix personal photos with artwork. Instead place personal photos in special areas and have speci“c walls designated for artwork. Mix too many pieces of artwork in the same room. It is best to choose a color palette for a space and select complementary artwork. Forget black and white are colors and great to use in a space. Use artwork that is too large or too small in a particular space. Be sure to use artwork of the appropriate size and scale. Hang artwork too high or too low. The proper height is eye level, which measures as 5 feet from the ”oor to the center of the piece of art.

The art of downsizingSTYLE AT HOMEMARY CAROL GARRITYQuestion: We bought our home a year ago with a fenced in yard. Recently, our neighbor demanded that we remove the fence from his property stating it is two feet over the line. I looked at our closing papers and saw that our survey does show our fence is on his property. The fence company, the seller, and our title company are telling us they will not help. We bought the house this way, and it does not feel right for us to have to pay to have the fence moved. Do we? „Stan Answer: Yes, you will have to pay to have the fence moved because you became responsible for it when you became the owner. When you entered into the contract to purchase the property, you and the seller agreed to a bundle of rights and responsibilities. The very situation you are now dealing with now was addressed in your contract and is part of the reason that you had the home surveyed during the closing process. The typical contract lets you notify the seller if there is an issue, such as yours, and would require the seller to “x the problem before closing. However, if you failed to notify the seller and went to closing, you waive this requirement. It becomes your problem, not the sellers. The fence company installed the fence with the approval Q&A: Surprise! New home came with fence … on neighbors land. Who pays to move it?By GARY M.

While I dont think you did it intentionally, you accepted this problem and will now need to move the fence. While the typical real estate contract seems like a simple “ll-in-theblank form, it has been crafted over the years to address almost every issue that arises during the process. There are numerous rights and responsibilities in those pages, and they should be carefully read. If, after reading them, you still dont fully understand what the contract requires, you should “nd a professional to help you through the process to make sure that a seemingly unimportant issue, such as this one, doesnt cause signi“cant problems later.

However, the escalation of house prices in many areas raises the possibility of pro“table re“nances directed to lowering other costs. For example, borrowers who purchased mortgage insurance when they took out their current mortgage may now have enough equity in their house that they can re“nance into a mortgage that will not require mortgage insurance. Similarly, borrowers who took out a pricey second mortgage in order to avoid mortgage insurance can re“nance into a larger “rst mortgage. And borrowers with substantial amounts of high-interest short-term debt may now have enough equity to pay it off with proceeds from a cash-out re“nance. This column is limited to re“nancing designed to eliminate mortgage insurance. Re“nancing to eliminate mortgage insurance pays if the monthly premiums that are eliminated exceed the cost of re“nancing plus the higher interest cost of the new mortgage over its future life. In making this comparison, the monthly premiums that are eliminated should be measured over the period until insurance on the existing mortgage is terminated. When that can happen depends on the termination rules to which the mortgage is subject. There are two sets of rules. € Federal rules applicable to all home mortgages: Borrowers can request their lender to terminate their insurance when their loan balance reaches 80 percent of the original property value „ the value when the loan was originated. For example, a 30-year “xed-rate loan at 3.5 percent that was 95 percent of property value at origination will hit the 80 percent mark in 88 months. If the mortgage is now four years old, the savings from re“nancing it would consist of the premiums over 88 … 48 = 40 months. The older the loan, the smaller the potential saving. If the borrower fails to request termination at 80 percent, the insurance will terminate automatically at 78 percent, or 10 months later. The maximum possible saving in that case would be 50 months of premiums. € Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac rules: If the loan was originated under Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines, termination is based on current appraised value rather than original value. The minimum period is two years if the current loan-to-value ratio is 75 percent or less, “ve years if the ratio is 80 percent or less. The borrower must request termination and pay for an appraisal. If the house has appreciated in value, these rules allow mortgage insurance to be terminated earlier than the general rule, reducing the potential bene“t from re“nancing. For example, if the home referred to above appreciates by 4 percent a year, the loan balance will hit 80 percent of current value after only 35 months rather than 88 months. Since the loan is four years old, the insurance should already have been terminated. In sum, the savings in insurance premiums from re“nancing Fannie/ Freddie loans is small, and especially so in areas that have experienced marked house price increases. Of course, there is the proviso that borrowers exercise their right to have the insurance terminated. Some dont do it because of the hassle and the appraisal cost, but getting rid of the insurance by re“nancing is much more of a hassle and the costs are much higher. The cost to which the saving in insurance premiums should be compared consists of upfront origination costs and higher interest cost over the future life of the new mortgage. The interest cost depends not only on the difference between the rate on the old and the new mortgage, but also on how long the new mortgage will be in force. For most borrowers, this is a guess with a large margin of error. The “rst priority for borrowers paying for mortgage insurance is to determine whether they can get it terminated. If they cant, they can use calculator 3a on my website to see if they will bene“t from re“nancing. They can “nd the origination costs and interest rate on a new mortgage, which the calculator needs, by going to the Shop Your LoanŽ page on my site. Next week I will look at the prospects for a profitable re“nance aimed at eliminating a high-cost second mortgage. Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Comments and questions can be left at in a time of rising rates, property valuesJack GuttentagMORTGAGE PROFESSOR WASHINGTON „ Long-term U.S. mortgage rates fell this week for the second straight week, providing a helpful jolt for potential home buyers. Last weeks decline followed weeks of increases that pushed long-term loan rates to their highest levels in seven years. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, “xed-rate mortgages was 4.54 percent, down from 4.56 percent last week. The average benchmark rate has been running at its highest levels since 2011. By contrast, the 30-year rate averaged 3.89 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, “xed-rate loans dipped to 4.01 percent from 4.06 percent last week. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30-year “xed-rate mortgages rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point last week. The fee on 15-year mortgages was unchanged at 0.4 percent. The average rate for “ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages dropped to 3.74 percent from 3.80 percent last week. The fee increased to 0.4 point from 0.3 point.US long-term mortgage rates fallThe Associated Press THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis May photo shows a home with a sold sign in Wexford, Pa.

Before we make our “nal decision we need more information. What type of stone is normally used to make stone bathroom sinks, and can artistic accents be added? Also, are special faucets needed for these special sinks? „ Carl, Rhode Island Answer: Natural stone is a beautiful bathroom sink material and usually available in a vessel-type sink. Popular choices are sinks made from marble and limestone. Stone is a very versatile material and can be handcrafted into different shapes and even etched to create special designs and textures. If you choose a vessel-type stone sink, like most vessel sinks youll need to install either a tall deck (counter top) mounted faucet or a wall-mounted faucet. Finally, stone sinks are a high-end item, and you should price them up “rst so your bathroom budget wont hit rock bottom later!

Sunday, June 10, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C7 RALEIGH, N.C. „ Anne DeCocco is an award-winning interior designer and owner of DeCocco Design, based in Raleigh. Here, she shares some of her favorite decorating tips from ”oor to ceiling: 1. LOOK UNDERFOOT While hardwoods are my favorite kind of ”oors, they often need to be warmed up (and protected) with area rugs. I think of them as artwork for the ”oor. You can use a lot of pattern and color in those rugs because they get quieter when laid down. Plus, there are often pieces of furniture on top, like coffee tables, dining tables, chairs and sofas. Ill always be a sucker for a gorgeous Persian rug „ they work in every decor „ but any kind that makes your heart beat faster is a winner. Invest in a wool rug. It cleans well and should last a lifetime. Using wall to wall? Choose a texture or even a patterned option. They tend to age better than a solid. 2. KEEP IT CALM What a wonderful, busy world we live in. In my own home „ and that of the majority of people I work with „ we want a peaceful retreat. A calm palette on the walls lays the foundation for thoughtful details and offers the ”exibility to change it up when desired. However, calmŽ can turn boringŽ if we dont add contrast and texture. Using a neutral color is “ne, but the same shade of that neutral, spread all over the room, is blah. Do you like beige (or gray) on your walls? OK, then use a lighter tone for the sofa upholstery, a darker shade on the ”oor, maybe a wood and metal coffee table and a couple of accent pillows with graphic patterns, bold stripes or exotic prints. Choose your color, then “nd every variation of it: pale, medium and dark. Include a fabric pattern that has your neutral color in it as well as other colors. Oh, you will love how that looks. 3. BIG OR SMALL, DETAILS ALL I go for contrast welt on upholstered furniture every time. Welt is that little tube-like trim that follows the outline of your upholstered seating. It looks very fresh when its a strong, contrasting color, like blue trim on a white chair. However, a much softer contrast can also look great, so feel free to use just a shade darker than your primary sofa fabric. This sharpens up the outline and makes the piece look a little bit different from everyone elses. Dont forget you can also add a handsome antique brass or pewter nail-head trim to the bottom of a chair for extra ”air. Layer these decorative touches into your room to make it feel special. 4. POLISH UP YOUR WALLS Using original art in your home can create a permanent connection to your community and highlights your personal style. I think its the biggest bang for your decorating buck. Find pieces at local art shows, galleries and small shops. My favorite travel souvenir is a piece of art to hang on the wall or place on a shelf. And dont forget old family pieces „ storing them in boxes is just too sad. Dust them off and “nd a place to feature them in your home. 5. BE COOL Sometimes details are spinning right above your head. It might be time to update your ginormous, heavy looking ceiling fans. Look for clean, modern lines and LED light kits that take up very little room. 6. ADD WHAT YOU DONT HAVE Think arches, corbels, transoms ƒ think beams. High density polystyrene beams look incredibly real and are very easy to install on your ceiling (they cut like butter!). A couple of beams adds instant character to a room. My favorite source is out of Virginia. These tips can get you started on the path to a home that makes you smile every time you walk through the door. Need more help?

C8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 10, 2018 In many regions, suf“cient rain falls throughout the growing season that you can pretty much forget about watering except to get newly planted transplants established. But even in those places, timely watering often spells the difference between a hohum garden and one that is truly exuberant. Timely watering need not involve setting up your sprinkler and then moving it around each day to ensure that the roots of all your plants get a good soaking. One way to avoid being a slave to your sprinkler is to grow plants that can get by with natural or little rainfall. In the vegetable garden, plants like tomatoes and melons, once established, can go long periods without rain. (They will yield more fruit with additional water, though.) Among ”owers, many familiar plants are drought-tolerant, including such favorites as sedum, yarrow, alyssum, butter”y weed, cerastium, black-eyed Susan, morning glory, moss rose, corn”ower, sun”ower and zinnia. Another effective alternative to the hose and sprinkler is drip-irrigation.Effective wateringOf course, it can be relaxing to stand out in the early morning sun on a Saturday, iced tea in one hand and hose in the other. But unless you have a lot of patience, watering like this does little more than wet plants leaves. You dont believe me? Scratch down into the soil after this watering and see how deep the water penetrated. Effective watering can be just as easy, but takes some planning. First of all, youre more apt to water a plant in need if you dont have to unroll the hose and drag it across the lawn, or “ght through some shrubbery to get to a spigot. Make your garden as convenient as possible to a hose spigot, or vice versa.Watering techAlso, some technology makes watering easier, saves water and is better for the plants. Drip irrigation,Ž sometimes called trickle irrigation,Ž drips water to plant roots at a rate more in sync than a sprinkler does with how water is lost from the soil. The moisture level stays closer to the ideal for plants, never ”ooded (such as after a thorough sprinkling) or dry. Since the water is emitted at ground level, plants leaves stay dry and there is less chance for disease. Drip irrigation emitters, which drip water at a pre-set rate of anywhere from 1 to 4 gallons per minute, come in two ”avors.Ž With the “rst type, you punch holes and plug the emitters into black plastic pipe at intervals. Since the emitters can be spaced far apart, they are useful for plants similarly spaced. By not watering the soil between plants, water is saved and weed problems decrease. The other type of emitter is a tube that drips water along its entire length; its useful for wetting whole areas of a garden or rows of closely spaced plants, such as carrots. With this type of emitter, water enters the soil through closely spaced perforations. So-called soaker hoses „ rubber tubes that ooze water „ are poor substitutes for drip irrigation. They deliver water too inconsistently along their length and over changes in elevation and time, and they eventually clog.Automate, sit, relaxWith drip irrigation, the ideal is to turn the water on and off many times each day. Plants, after all, are soaking up water from the soil throughout the day. You dont have to be tethered to your hose spigot, though, if you mate your drip irrigation system to a battery-powered timer. Some timers even hook up to a sensor that monitors rainfall and determines whether watering is necessary. Once all of this is set up, you can sit back in a chair on your terrace and sip your iced tea there.A little planning makes watering much easier, more efficientBy LEE REICHTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo shows watering with a water wand in New Paltz, N.Y. Although very satisfying, a water wand is not a very eective way to water in-ground plants unless youre willing to hold still, training the water in one spot, for a very long time. adno=3585761adno=XNSP49663 Celebrating 30 Years!

By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesRealistically, we wont know for years how the Rays really did in last weeks draft. Four or five actually. If by 2023 left-hander Matthew Liberatore is the new young gun in the rotation, center fielder Nick Schnell is the next Indiana boy running down balls in centerfield, CF/RHP Tanner Dodson is what then will be known as the next Brendan McKay and a couple of lower picks have risen to the majors, then they will indeed have done well with their grand opportunity. But if they dont get all the ones they want signed by the July 6 deadline, or they have a bad run of injuries, insufficient progress and/or off-field issues, this years potential haul with seven of the top 120 picks could end up like 2011, when 10 of the top 60 yielded, Sunday, June 10, 2018 SPORTS € @SunCoastSportsINDEX | Lottery 2 | MILB 2 | NHL 2 | NBA 2 | NFL 3 | Tennis 3 | Baseball 4 | Scoreboard 5 | World Cup 6 | Golf 6 | WNBA 6 Say Goodbye to Erectile DysfunctionPaid Advertisement The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood ow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and c reams 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 sta at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood ow 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, rmer and more sustainable erections. NO SURGERY(239) 887-3602Southwest Florida Medical Group www.SWFLMedicalGroup.comIndividual results may vary.

The chestnut colt became the second undefeated horse to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, improving to 6-0 in a racing career that began on Feb. 18. Seattle Slew was unbeaten when he won the Triple Crown in 1977. Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Justify went to the lead out of the starting gate and led nine rivals around the tracks sweeping turns. He burnished his reputation by defeating nine rivals, the most faced by any Triple Crown champion.HORSE RACINGJustify wins Belmont to become 13th Triple Crown championJustify crownedAP PHOTOJustify (1), with jockey Mike Smith up, crosses the finish line to win the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes horse race yeste rday in Elmont, N.Y.

Shed gone 0-3 in matches with a major trophy on the line before facing Sloane Stephens for the French Open title Saturday, so there was plenty to remember: what it felt like to give a lead away, to make a key mistake, to walk away with regrets. All the experience from those three finals that I lost ... was a positive thing,Ž Halep said, and gave me a little bit more power to believe.Ž Halep added Grand Slam trophy No. 1 to her No. 1 ranking, coming back from a set and a break down to beat Stephens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 and win the championship at Roland Garros in a match made up of long points and key momentum swings. Thats the most important thing „ that I stay there focused,Ž said Halep, the first Romanian to collect a major title since her manager, Virginia Ruzici, at the 1978 French Open. I believed. And I never gave up.Ž The 26-year-old Halep was describing this particular match.

Stephen Curry is under contract for basically the rest of his prime. Kevin Durant says he isnt going anywhere. Steve Kerr has more than proven himself as one of the games best coaches. Free agents will line up for the chance to move west even if that means taking some pay cuts. Theres even a new arena coming in a year or so for the Golden State Warriors to call home. Its their league now, without question. For the third time in four years, the Warriors are champions of the NBA world. Theyve gone back-to-back, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 on Friday night to finish off a sweep of these NBA Finals in the fourth consecutive meeting between those clubs. The Cavs may very well be coming apart. The Warriors look very much built to last, and no matter where LeBron James goes this summer itll probably be Golden State as the prohibitive favorites to win it all again next year. You dont want to cheat the moment,Ž Curry said, the victory champagne still drying on his clothes and skin, wanting no part of any talk about dynasties or anything like that. So well have plenty of time over the summer to talk about what next years going to look like and COMMENTARYGet used to a Golden State world, NBASEE JUSTIFY, 6 SEE JONES, 3 SEE RAYS, 3 SEE NBA, 3 WORLD CUP SHORTFALLThe 2018 World Cup has cost Russia billions of dollars to stage and will make FIFA hundreds of millions in pro“ t.

PETERSBURG, „ Blake Snell lacked the sharpness he had in his previous start, but this time the Tampa Bay ace got the win over an opponent he idolized as a teenager. Snell overcame occasional wildness to go six effective innings, and the Rays stopped an eightgame losing streak by beating Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners 7-3 on Saturday. Obviously we needed a win,Ž Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. We needed Blake to step up. We need that stopper.Ž Snell (8-3), who was born in Seattle, gave up two runs and seven hits. The 25-year-old left-hander walked two, recorded one strikeout, hit a batter and had two wild pitches. Off what I had today, Id say it was good,Ž Snell said. Frustration with most (of my pitches). Its a tough lineup. When you dont have anything going and get through six, youve got to be happy with it.Ž Hernandez (6-5) allowed six runs and seven hits over three innings in his shortest start this season, a rematch of last Sundays matchup against Snell and the Rays in Seattle. The life on the fastball (was) a little concerning today,Ž Mariners manager Scott Servais said. To be effective hes got to get up in the 89-90 range and today he didnt even get there. But its not all about velocity, its about locating it. That really wasnt on today either.Ž Hernandez gave up one run and five hits over eight innings in his victory last weekend. Snell struck out 12 over six scoreless innings and got a nodecision in that game. They put a lot of balls in play,Ž Hernandez said. There was a few mistakes.

I just have to pitch my game the way I pitched last week.Ž Nelson Cruz hit a fifthinning homer and Kyle Seager had a pair of RBI grounders for Seattle, which lost for just the fifth time in 21 games. Mallex Smith had an RBI triple „ first called a homer and overturned after a video review „ and Christian Arroyo hit a run-scoring single to put Tampa Bay up 6-1 in the third. Smith scored from second during a threerun second when shortstop Jean Segura was charged with an error. Rob Refsynders bloop single to left bounced off the turf and went off Seguras glove.

By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ Stanley Cup champions just want to have fun. Theyre doing so right now. The Washington Capitals took the Stanley Cup through the MGM Grand and to a dance club on the Las Vegas Strip. They took it to a popular bar not far from their suburban practice facility. Then they took it to Nationals Park, where they kept hoisting it from a suite to the roars of the crowd. Hockey decisions, their individual Cup days and change lie ahead. This weekend is for celebrating. Were getting days with the Cup right now,Ž defenseman John Carlson said. We got some time to worry about the other stuff.Ž From Las Vegas to Washington and with more than a few drinks in between, the Capitals are acting as if they havent been here before „ because they havent. Theyre the first new Cup champion since the Los Angeles Kings in 2012 and finally are atop the NHL after nine early playoff exits. Ovechkin is taking every chance he can get to lift the Cup, whether it was coming off the plane with Nicklas Backstrom on Friday or on the field Saturday before and after his two tries at a ceremonial first pitch. I just Cup holder right now,Ž Ovechkin said. Chugging beers during a TV interview, Capitals players broke out into an impromptu rendition of Queens We Are The ChampionsŽ and swayed together when it was played during the seventh-inning stretch. The first Cup is bringing out the deepest emotions for the superstar captain and his teammates and coaches. I still cant believe it,Ž Ovechkin said. I think no one still can believe like we did and we are right now Stanley Cup champions. But its great, I think. Something you will never forget.Ž Just seeing the Cup in person was a thrill for the Nationals Max Scherzer and Ryan Zimmerman, who dressed up in full hockey gear to pump up fans before Game 4 of the Cup Final. They got a sneak peek that night, and the trophy was in their clubhouse Saturday on its annual whirlwind tour that includes the District of Columbia for the first time. Its easily the best trophy in all of sports, just the stories and how its the same Cup every year,Ž Zimmerman said. Im big into that history and its awesome how theyve kind of maintained that throughout the years.ŽNHLStanley Cup party rolls on for CapitalsBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ Kevin Durant had a simple message for his critics: Thanks.Ž Durants move to the Golden State Warriors, booed by many around the NBA, has unquestionably paid off for both the player and his team. Two years, two NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVPs and almost certainly a new contract in the next few weeks after he and the Warriors decide on the best way to proceed. He is often a man of few words, but Durant let his thoughts be known Friday night after the Warriors won their second consecutive title by finishing off a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers. There was a rare openness to Durant in his postgame remarks as he let his detractors know that whatever they said when he left Oklahoma City for Golden State didnt mean much then and means even less now. Former players and players now that got a lot to say about what I did, they know how I play,Ž Durant said, his newest Finals MVP trophy standing just to his left. They know exactly what I bring. They know. They know. They understand when they get on the court with me or if they check up with me, they know what it is. So I kind of try to just stand on that. But I know what I bring to the game.Ž Heres what he brings to the Warriors: 26.4 points per game in this regular season, 29 points per game in the playoffs, a 43-point explosion in Game 3 that will go into NBA Finals lore and a triple-double in the series clincher to cap it all off. But the criticism „ which came from both current and former players when he joined the Warriors to form a superteam two summers ago „ probably wont stop, either. Perhaps a coincidence, Durants former Oklahoma City teammate Russell Westbrook posted a video of himself singing along with an Ice Cube rap on Saturday morning „ the message of the track being that someone had lost his or her edge. I saw it comin; thats why I went solo,Ž Cube rapped, as Westbrook mouthed the words. (Not long afterward, amid speculation that was directed to Durant, Westbrook added another post that said, Stop reaching.Ž) Not everyone has a negative thought on Durant and his choices. Cleveland star LeBron James, who denied Durant a title when Miami beat Oklahoma City in 2012, raves about Durants game. You knew he was built for greatness from the time that he was drafted,Ž James said. The greatness cant be questioned now. And if Durant going to Golden State hasnt been great for league-wide parity, it has quite obviously been great for the Warriors.NBAFinals MVP Kevin Durant gets the last word SPORTS ON TV Staff ReportsLate inning histrionics for the Stone Crabs are becoming routine, A 9h inning rally helped the Stone Crabs overcome a 3-run deficit, as they handed the Clearwater Threshers a 6-5 loss, Saturday night at the Charlotte Sports Park. Clearwater jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, but Charlotte would answer back with a 2-run 3rd inning. Left fielder Robbie Tenerowicz accounted for the Stone Crabs first run, scoring David Olmedo-Barrera, with a single to right. But the offense wasn't quite done. Charlotte loaded the bases, and third baseman Kevin Padlo, who had hit a grand slam the previous night, was hit by a pitch, allowing shortstop Lucius Gray, who went 3-5 on the night, to score. The Stone Crabs would make it a 1-run game in the 5th inning, the result of small ball, as Josh Lowe's bunt single brought home Kevin Padlo. Clearwater added to their lead in the 9th inning, finding themselves with a 2-run cushion as they entered the bottom of the frame. But it wouldn't be enough as the Stone Crabs began chipping away at the Threshers lead. A sharp single to right by second baseman Tristan Gray drove in Brendan McKay. Josh Lowe delivered the walk-off hit, a soft pop up to short that turned into a 2-run single, scoring Tenerowicz and Gray. Brandon Koch pitched the final two innings, earning the victory in relief.MILB: Stone Crabs 6, Threshers 5Stone Crabs rally in 9th to defeat Threshers


The Sun / Sunday, June 10, 2018 SP Page 3By RICK STROUDTampa Bay TimesTAMPA „ This is mandatory minicamp week for the Bucs, which means after Thursday, the next time they assemble as a team will be the start of training camp, only about six weeks from the regular season opener at New Orleans Sept. 9. A lot is still unknown. The NFL investigation into an allegation that Jameis Winston acted inappropriately during an Uber ride after his rookie season has rolled into its eighth month. Jason Pierre-Paul, who was acquired in trade with the Giants, did not attend any of the Bucs organized team activities but is expected to be with his teammates this week. Guard J.R. Sweezy and tackle Demar Dotson still are recovering from knee surgeries. But there seems to be an agreement on one thing: this is a big year for Winston. There is a new sense of urgency because the future of coach Dirk Koetter, his staff and general manager Jason Licht hang in the balance. With Winston, you never know what youre going to get. Hes made steady improvement but has won only 18 games in three seasons. What started with offensive coordinator Todd Monken is now being echoed elsewhere when it comes to Winston. Less is more. Ultimately, the success of this franchise is going to depend on one thing: thats Jameis Winston, said former Bucs defensive tackle Booger McFarland, who will be part of ESPNs new Monday Night Football team with Joe Tessitore and former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. The Bucs host the Steelers on MNF in Week 3. What hes got to learn is really simple: Less is more, McFarland said. Less of the rah-rah manufactured stuff. Leave that to (Gerald) McCoy. Be the quarterback. Its a natural leadership position. You touch the ball every play, whether you want it or not, its there. You dont have to manufacture it. He learns that, I think this team will take the next step. To me, his next step has nothing to do with the physical tools. I think the physical tools will get better. He wants to be a leader so bad. I go back to New Orleans, the licking the fingers and all that. Thats manufactured.Ž McFarlands message to Jameis: Be yourself, but temper it. Im not saying be somebody different because Tom Brady is always getting fired up with people. Hes over there head-butting. So theres always going to be some of that,Ž he said. Dont manufacture it and you look at the quarterbacks in the league, Im not talking about the physical. Its how they carry themselves. They step to the podium, they look a certain way. You see them in public, they look a certain way. You hear them talk, they talk a certain way. The way they lead. The way the dress. The situations they do or do not get themselves into. Off the field. A certain way youve got to carry yourself. Just look at the ones that are successful,Ž McFarland said. They take the heat, even when theyre not supposed to take it. They take success, probably when theyre not supposed to take it. But they understand thats how you lead. On the field, McFarland believes Winston has to continue to get better protecting the football and with his accuracy. I think winning is a factor, but I would add another word. I think hes got to play winning football, McFarland said. Wins and losses cant be stuck on a quarterback. Its got to be winning football. Hes got to put himself in a position where his team can win. If he goes out and he walks off the field and his team is up and its late fourth quarter and his defense has got to make a stop and they dont, its not on him. So hes got to play winning football, meaning he needs a three-to-one TD/interceptions ratio. The best quarterbacks in the league are three, three and a half to one. In this day and age, with the way the game is officiated, 60-65 (completion) percent is normal. Thats where theyre at now. I think hes got to understand how to be a leader. While noting the Bucs play in the NFC South with experienced quarterbacks in Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, McFarland notes that Winston is only 24. If he were older, he says, he might be looking for a new job. Youve got to show me the upside, McFarland said. Show me the upside that you can continue to get better. Because if he was in the same position at 32, they would be ready to move on. But youre still here because we know whats coming. Youve got to show us that you know how to get there.NFL: BuccaneersBooger McFarlands advice to Winston: Less is more MONICA HERNDON | TIMESQuaterback Jameis Winston (3) throws during Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice on Thursday May 24, 2018 at One Buc Place in Tampa. By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS „ A year ago at this time, Sloane Stephens sat out the French Open while she put in the work it would take to get back on tour after having foot surgery. The payoff was a U.S. Open title last September. Then, less than six months ago, Stephens was exiting the Australian Open in the first round, part of a downturn and an eight-match losing skid. On Saturday, past the fourth round at Roland Garros for the first time in her career, bidding to win a second Grand Slam championship, the 10thseeded Stephens got off to a great start in the French Open final. The 25-yearold American could not hold onto her lead of a set and a break, though, and wound up as the runnerup with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 loss to No. 1 Simona Halep. Not very many players ever get to a Grand Slam final. So the fact that I have won one and been in another final in such a short period of time, Im very optimistic and very pleased with myself,Ž said Stephens, who will move up to a career-best No. 4 in the WTA rankings on Monday. Im not satisfied, but I am proud of myself.Ž After playing so well, so cleanly, for the opening set and while going ahead 2-0 in the second, Stephens slowed down. Her footwork was not as precise. Her mistakes began to increase. Her ability to put the ball right where she wanted to declined. Stephens finished with 39 unforced errors, 25 on backhands. For Sloane, you could just see late in the second set (that she was) starting to get a little bit tired, making a few more errors than she did in the first set,Ž said Haleps coach, Darren Cahill. I think Simona realized that.Ž Stephens wouldnt acknowledge running out of steam. Instead, she credited Halep for the way the match turned. She raised her game, raised her level. Not much you can really do about that,Ž said Stephens, whose late father, John, was the 1988 Offensive Rookie of the Year for the New England Patriots. I competed the best I could,Ž she added, and the better player won the match today.ŽTENNIS: French OpenSloane Stephens 1st loss in any “ nal comes at French Openessentially, just Blake Snell. What we do know is that the reviews from the experts on this class of 43 have been favorable.s Jim Callis ranked the Rays atop his list, writing no team had a better 2018 draft, specifically in getting Liberatore at No. 16 and USF LHP Shane McClanahan at 31, plus several notable picks from the second day (Georgia prep RHP Taj Bradley) and third (San Diego LHP Nick Sprengel, Cal Baptist RHP Justin Montgomery). Anytime you have three first-round picks, youre going to look good immediately after the Draft, but I really like what the Rays did, Callis told the Tampa Bay Times on Friday. The first round couldnt have worked out any better: Matt Liberatore is a very advanced high school lefthander with solid stuff and he shouldnt have gotten to 16; Shane McClanahan is a power lefty who shouldnt have gotten to 31; and Nick Schnell is a potential fivetool outfielder who was a nice get at 32. I thought the rest of their draft was solid if not spectacular, and their first round really set the stage.Ž Baseball Americas Carlos Collazo and J.J. Cooper also raved at their good fortune, calling Liberatore the top prep pitcher,Ž in the draft, noting McClanahan was sliding but his electricarm seems like a steal that lowŽ and calling Schnell the countrys hottest high school hitter. ESPNs Keith Law went even further, saying Liberatore was the best lefty „ high school or college „ in the draft, so landing a player of this caliberŽ with the 16th pick is kind of unbelievable. He suggested, as others have, that McClanahan may be better as a reliever, wrote Schnell has big power and above-avera g e s p eed, and projected thirdround INF Ford Proctor and 4th-round OF Grant Witherspoon as big-league regulars. I love what they did up top „ Liberatore was No. 3 on my board, and the next two guys were good value picks for their spots, Law told the Times Friday. The Bradley kid is the most interesting name from after their first three, because he is so young and relatively new to pitching. I think Dodsons intriguing but probably a reliever in the end. I heard (Reds reliever) Mike Lorenzen a lot when asking scouts about him. After the first three selections they seemed a bit conservative, but I dont know what paying those names up top or Bradley will require (which might have meant going conservative to save bonus pool money). 10 things to know about the draft class € Three high school picks were the Gatorade Players of the year in their states: Liberatore (Arizona), Schnell (Indiana), 38th round LHP Garrett Wade (Alabama). € Liberatore was the highest selected high school pitcher in franchise history, surpassing RHP Taylor Guerrieri (No. 24 in 2011), RHP Jason Standridge (No. 31 in 1997). € RHP Taj Bradley (5th round) turned 17 in March, making him the first player drafted born in 2001. Think about that for a minute. € CF/RHP Tanner Dodson (competitive balance B-round) will get the chance, like Brendan McKay, to be a two-way player in the minors, though its a little trickier since he is a reliever and center fielder rather than a starter and DH/first baseman. Dodson did well doing both at Cal, switchhitting .320 in 54 games while posting a 2-1, 2.48, 11-save record. € RHP Eric Cerantola (30th round) is different kind of two-way player, having also been selected in the ei g hth round of the 2016 Ontario Hockey League draft as right winger by the Owen Sound Attack. He opted for baseball after being moved from outfield to pitcher and progressing quickly, earning a spot on the Canadian Junior National team. € OF Beau Brundage (33rd round) had good bloodlines. His father, Dave, played 10 seasons in the minors and has managed more than 20, currently leading the Giants Triple-A team in Sacramento. € So does Dodson, whose dad, Bo, was a third-round pick by Milwaukee in 1989 and played 10 seasons in the minors, reaching Triple-A with the Brewers, Red Sox and Orioles. € RHP Simon Rosenblum-Larson (19th round) was drafted out of Harvard and, no surprise, has a high school resume that includes being president of the National Honor Society his senior year Madison (Wisc.) West. € SS T y ler Frank (2nd round) already had some Rays connections before signing Friday, having played at Delray Beachs American Heritage High with prospect Lucius Fox and in the Cape Cod summer league with thirdround pick Ford Proctor, who, in turns out, played with spring acquisition Tristan Gray at Rice. € If the Rays were playing the uncommon name game, they sure did well two Tanners (Dodson and Brubaker), a Ford (Proctor), Grant (Witherspoon), Taj (Bradley), Miller (Hogan), Jacson (McGowan), Marvin (Malone), Simon (Rosenblum-Larson), Daiveyon (Whittle), Keegan (McCarville), Jordan (Qsar), Steffan (Moore), Heath (Renz), Kaleo (Johnson), Beau (Brundage), Dawson (Dimon), Keavon (Edwards), Garrett (Wade).

Primarily a guard in the pros, Mr. Jones earned a Super Bowl ring as a Patriots rookie despite limited action. He spent parts of four seasons in the NFL and later played one season (2008) for the Tampa Bay Storm in the Arena Football League. Characterized as the life of the partyŽ by Sipp, Mr. Jones career was tainted by a sequence of arrests, including one on a felony charge of carrying a concealed firearm just prior to his senior season at USF. Mr. Jones underwent pretrial-diversion, according to court records. In October 2003, he was arrested for allegedly dousing his house guest and administrative assistant with scalding water, and was released by the Patriots five days later. In July 2008, he was arrested in a Tampa narcotics sweep for allegedl y trying to purchase less than a gram each of cocaine and marijuana, but those charges either were dropped or he wasnt prosecuted, court records indicate. On Saturday, however, former teammates preferred to remember a burly peer described as a fun-loving soul and consummate teammate. I mean, just the ultimate teammate, ultimate competitor,Ž former Bulls TB Otis Dixon said. On a long, hot day, he was gonna help us get through practice. ƒ Life will never be the same. He hasnt been in my life, but hes in my life.ŽJONESFrom Page 1what its going to take for us to get back to this stage next year.Ž Houston probably isnt going away and remember, the Rockets gave the Warriors all they wanted this season. Had Chris Paul not gotten hurt, who knows if the Warriors even win that Game 7 in Houston and take the West title. The East might be a wild race, with Toronto, Philadelphia and Boston probably all likely to enter the year thinking they have NBA Finals potential „ as will any team that has James on its roster next fall. This much is clear: Golden State has no designs on giving up its throne. Ive just got to keep getting better,Ž said Warriors star Kevin Durant, now a two-time champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP. I think Ive got a lot more to go. So Im just trying to prove to myself that I could just stay in it for the long haul, and hopefully I continue to have some success. Just keep growing as a player.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. „ Such is the stature of century-old Shinnecock Hills that it seems everyone cant wait for the U.S. Open. Shinnecock looks epic,Ž Russell Knox said after he qualified. Phil Mickelson has been critical at times for how the USGA prepares a golf course for what it calls the ultimate test.Ž He was runner-up at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, when only three players broke par on the weekend, none on Sunday. Asked if it was unfair, Mickelson said that day, I played some of the best golf of my life and still couldnt shoot par. So you tell me.Ž He has been back to the Long Island gem twice in recent weeks and was raving about it. I think its the greatest setup Ive ever seen in a U.S. Open,Ž he said. No one is more excited about a return to Shinnecock Hills than the USGA, which has tradition on its side for the 118th U.S. Open championship. As much as it tries to present the ultimate test, lately it has seemed more like a trivia quiz. Twice in the last three years, the U.S. Open has gone to golf courses barely a decade old „ Chambers Bay in the Pacific Northwest and Erin Hills in the heart of Wisconsins pastureland „ that featured wide fairways and the wrong kind of weather. It reached a point where Jack Nicklaus, whose name is on the gold medal awarded the winner, feared the U.S. Open was losing its identity. For him, that identity was narrow fairways, thick rough and hard, fast greens. Take me with a grain of salt,Ž Nicklaus said. Youre partial to what you grew up with. All the (four) Opens I won were set up that way.Ž Shinnecock should at least look like a traditional U.S. Open, even if it will be different from the last time it was there in 2004. For starters, the course has added 10 new tees that have lengthened it by 450 yards. Most of the additional tees have been moved back at angles, instead of straight back, to try to restore the shot values that architect William Flynn had in mind. The fairways were widened in a renovation project just over five years ago. Then in a response to the swing-for-the-fences style that wide-open Erin Hills allowed, the USGA had 200,000 square feet of turf removed from the sides of the fairways and replaced it with fescue. The U.S. Open really is, we consider, golfs ultimate test and accuracy needed to play a bigger role in that,Ž said Mike Davis, the USGAs chief executive. Fairways that were an average of 26 yards wide for 2004 were widened to about 65 yards under the renovation, and then brought in to about 41 yards for the U.S. Open. The greens were enlarged. And gone is the thick rough framing the greens, meaning errant shots will travel along short grass farther from the hole.

Still, the big numbers that are routine for major sports events are unlikely to set World Cup records. Russias official budget of 678 billion rubles ($11.6 billion) spent on projects for the tournament is less than the estimated $15 billion spent by Brazil on the 2014 World Cup. The budget to meet President Vladimir Putins pledge to showcase a warmer, more open Russia excludes some transport projects the tournament relies on. It also looks a bargain compared to the $51 billion bill for the 2014 Winter Olympics that extended from Sochi into nearby mountains. FIFA will top $6 billion for the four-year commercial cycle tied to this World Cup, beating its $5.656 billion target. The marquee tournament is overwhelmingly the main source of FIFA income. That target, however, was conservative compared to $5.72 billion of overall income booked by FIFA in the Brazilian World Cup period. Sponsors have been harder to sign since the May 2015 revelation of American and Swiss federal investigations of bribery rocked FIFA and dozens of international soccer leaders. Heres a look at some of the financial numbers: HARD TIMES Life was relatively good for FIFA and Russia in December 2010 when hosting rights were awarded. The 2010 World Cup in South Africa ran smoother than many feared, and helped deliver a $631 million FIFA profit for a four-year period that included a global financial crash. The 2006 World Cup in Germany earned FIFA around $700 million. Oil prices started a surge beyond $100 per barrel, fueling Russia for its Olympic and World Cup hosting. By May 2015, oil prices had slumped. Russian banks and businessmen were hit by international sanctions following the previous years annexation of Crimea and the ruble value fell. FIFAs attempts to sell two-tournament sponsorship packages with the 2022 World Cup in Qatar stalled. It is complicated, especially in a market where (potential partners) see some crisis around,Ž said Philippe Le Floch, the FIFA marketing director who inherited tough sales conditions in late-2016. 2018 SALES The World Cup kicks off with two major gaps in FIFAs sponsorship plan. FIFA wanted a total of 14 deals in its toptier PartnerŽ category „ including long-term backers Adidas and Coca-Cola „ and second-tier SponsorŽ category. There are just 12. Companies from the United States, Japan, Germany and Britain did not renew after the 2014 World Cup. Logical replacements, Russian energy giant Gazprom and Qatar Airways, were joined by four Chinese in the 12-sponsor lineup.SOCCER: World CupSpending, pro“ ts to fall short of record sumsAP FILE PHOTORussian President Vladimir Putin speaks at the 2018 soccer World Cup draw in the Kremlin in Moscow on Dec. 1, 2017.

Justify achieved one of the sports toughest feats 45 years to the day that Secretariat won the Belmont by a record 31 lengths. The powerful colt with the blaze running the length of his face showed no signs that the rigors of running a compressed schedule had gotten to him. He won the Kentucky Derby by 2 lengths and then survived a half-length victory in the Preakness, both on sloppy tracks. On a fast, dry track, Justify was just as good in his third race in five weeks at his third different track. He ran the longest race of the series in 2:28.18 and paid $3.60, $3.50 and $2.80. This horse ran a tremendous race, hes so gifted,Ž said Mike Smith, who at 52 is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown. Hes sent from heaven.

BUSINESS / CLASSIFIEDS / REAL ESTATESECTION D Sunday, June 10, 2018 NEW YORK „ Facebook said a software bug led some users to post publicly by default regardless of their previous settings. The bug affected as many as 14 million users over several days in May. The problem, which Facebook said it has “xed, is the latest privacy scandal for the worlds largest social media company. It said the bug automatically suggested that users make new posts public, even if they had previously restricted posts to friends onlyŽ or another private setting. If users did not notice the new default suggestion, they unwittingly sent their post to a broader audience than they had intended. Erin Egan, Facebooks chief privacy of“cer, said the bug did not affect past posts. Facebook is notifying users who were affected and posted publicly during the time the bug was active, advising them to review their posts. The news follows recent furor over Facebooks sharing of user data with device makers, including Chinas Huawei. The company is also still recovering from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which a Trump-af“liated data-mining “rm got access to the personal data of as many as 87 million Facebook users. Jonathan Mayer, a professor of computer science and public affairs at Princeton University, said on Twitter that this latest privacy gaffe looks like a viable Federal Trade Commission/state attorney general deception case.Ž Thats because the company had promised that the setting users set in their most recent privacy preferences would be maintained for future posts. In this case, this did not happen for several days. Facebooks 2011 consent decree with the FTC calls for the company to get express consentŽ from users before sharing their information beyond what they established in their privacy settings. Even if the bug was an accident on Facebooks part, Mayer said in an email that the FTC can bring enforcement action for privacy mistakes. Facebook, which has 2.2 billion users, says the bug was active from May 18 until May 27. While the company says it stopped the error on May 22, it was not able to change all the posts back to their original privacy parameters until later. The mistake happened when the company built a new way for people to share featured itemsŽ on their pro“les. These items, which include posts and photo albums, are automatically public. In the process of creating this feature, Facebook said it accidentally made the suggested audience for all new posts public. When people post to Facebook, the service suggests a default distribution for their posts based on past privacy settings. If someone made all posts friends onlyŽ in the past, it will set their next post to friends onlyŽ as well. People can still manually change the privacy level of the posts „ anywhere from publicŽ to only meŽ „ and this was the case while the bug was active as well.Facebook says privacy-setting bug affected as many as 14MBy BARBARA ORTUTAYAP TECHNOLOGY WRITER RICHARD DREW/AP FILE PHOTOIn this March 29, 2018, le photo the logo for Facebook appears on screens at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New Yorks Times Square.

LAKE PLACID „ Monday was a keynote day for NuHope staff and its clients as they gathered with representatives from the Greater Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce when business owners celebrated the opening of Nu-Hope Diamond Bistro in the morning. The ceremony signi“ed the re-grand opening of the congregate meal site for senior citizens over 60 years old. Age and Hurricane Irma irreparably damaged the old site on Interlake Boulevard. The new and improved site is at 212 N. Main Ave. and it is open weekdays form 9 a.m. to noon. Clients must register so that the correct amount of food is ensured. Nu-Hope provides socialization and free lunches at the site. They will have art classes and even exercise classes such as chair Thai Chi. Nu-Hope Executive Ingra Gardner was ecstatic over the opening and the turnout. Today was a great example of what can be done through community to support older adults,Ž Gardner said. For 43 years, Nu-Hope has provided comprehensive services for seniors and those who care for them. Today marked the beginning of something wonderful. Not only have we opened a new Lake Placid meal site, The Diamond Bistro, but we have implemented a new re-thermed meal program.Ž Gardner said that the re-thermedmeals are frozen and cooked at the site; this allows the clients to have a more homey experience with the aromas and friends surrounding them. The seniors can make new friends or catch up with old ones; chatting and learning new skills among their peers. The new facility is bright and spacious and the staff is very welcoming. The Town of Lake Placid has of“cially been without a congregate meal site since September, when Irma struck her “nal blow to the old site. We are so fortunate to have community partners that care for our older adults,Ž Gardner said. Serving seniors strengthens the entire community.Ž Call 863-465-4441 to register for the lunches and determine if free transportation is available.

Coming together for the May 27 grand opening are, from left, Pastor Juan Hernandez, barber Rafy Tru, owners Waleska and Manuel Manny Reyes, nail technician Yoreliz, and Juan and Pastor Mary Hernandez.Kings Barbershop grand openingDETROIT „ Kia is recalling over a half-million vehicles in the U.S. because the air bags may not work in a crash. Combined with a previous recall expansion by Hyundai, the af“liated automakers are recalling nearly 1.1 million vehicles due to the problem, which has been linked to four deaths. The moves by both Korean automakers came after the National Highway Traf“c Safety Administration opened an investigation into the problems in March. The safety agency said at the time it had reports of six front-end crashes with signi“cant damage to the cars. Four people died and six were injured. Vehicles covered by the Kia recall include 2010 through 2013 Forte compact cars and 2011 through 2013 Optima midsize cars. Also covered are Optima Hybrid and Sedona minivans from 2011 and 2012. In April, Hyundai expanded a recall from earlier in the year to 580,000 vehicles. Those include the 2011 through 2013 Sonata midsize car and the 2011 and 2012 Sonata Hybrid. Hyundai says the recall now includes all vehicles with the same air bag computers. Both automakers say theyre working on a “x. Kia said it would notify owners by July 27, while Hyundai said its noti“cation runs from April 20 to June 15. Hyundai will offer loaner vehicles to owners who request them, spokesman Michael Stewart said. A Kia spokesman did not respond to a question about loaner vehicles. Kia said in a statement that concerned owners should call dealers or the company. Government documents say a short circuit can develop in an air bag control computer made by parts supplier ZF-TRW, and the air bags can fail to deploy. The computer detects a crash signal, issues a command to in”ate the air bags and prepares seat belts for a crash if necessary. In documents from the investigation, NHTSA said it understands that the Kia Fortes under investigation use similar air bag control computers made by ZFTRW. The agency noted a 2016 recall involving more than 1.4 million Fiat Chrysler cars and SUVs that had a similar problem causing the air bags not to deploy. Agency documents show those vehicles had air bag computers made by ZF-TRW. The agency said would evaluate the Hyundai-Kia problems and will investigate whether any other vehicle manufacturers used the same or similar ZF-TRW air bag computers. Messages were Friday left seeking comment from NHTSA. The agency says four crashes occurred in Sonatas and two happened in Fortes. One Forte crash happened in Canada. All six crashes were reported to NHTSA between 2012 and 2017, but it was unclear when they occurred. In a statement Friday, ZF-TRW said the air bag control units sent to Kia were designed and built according to Kia speci“cations. The company provided technical support to Kia, it said. ZF also supplies air bag computers to other manufacturers which it did not identify, but said each one is designed to a customers particular vehicle.Ž The statement said ZF is cooperating with the government investigation. In May of last year, NHTSA opened an investigation into whether Hyundai and Kia moved quickly enough to recall more than 1.6 million cars and SUVs because the engines can stall, increasing the risk of a crash. The investigation into three recalls by the two brands is pending. The agency also said its investigating whether the automakers followed safety reporting requirements.Kia recalls over 500K vehicles; air bags may not inflateBy TOM KRISHERAP AUTO WRITER AHN YOUNG-JOON/AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 28, 2011 le photo, KIA Motors logo is seen on a K7 sedan at a showroom in Seoul, South Korea.

(AP) „ Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg says MITs graduating class should use technology as a force for goodŽ but warned that others might use it for harm. Sandberg, the companys chief operating of“cer, used Facebooks missteps as a lesson in accountability in her commencement speech Friday at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She says Facebooks leaders didnt see all the risks comingŽ and didnt do enough to stop them.Ž Her lesson for students is to ownŽ their mistakes to prevent future ones. The social-media giant has been under intense scrutiny in the wake of a privacy scandal involving a data mining “rm. Sandberg did not elaborate on Facebooks missteps in her speech. Still, Sandberg says shes proud that Facebook has helped people organize for democracyŽ and urged students to be clear-eyed optimists.ŽBrothers who ran fake airplane loan scheme sent to prisonWORCESTER, Mass. (AP) „ Two brothers from Chicago who were convicted of using stolen identities to obtain millions of dollars in fraudulent airplane loans from several banks have each been sentenced to more than a decade in prison. The Telegram & Gazette reports that 32-year-old Ryan Miller was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Massachusetts to 15 years behind bars, while 31-year-old Dusten James Miller was sentenced to 12 years. They were convicted in February of bank fraud, money laundering and identity theft-related charges. Prosecutors say from 2013 until 2016 the brothers posed as airplane buyers and sellers and used the identities of other people and doctored documents to obtain $4 million in loans. Authorities say they laundered the money through shell companies, and used it to buy luxury homes, cars and other high-end items. SESSUMS

For more than three months, investors have focused on U.S. negotiations with trading partners including China, Europe, Canada and Mexico. In general, stocks have dropped when investors feared that increasing trade sanctions would disrupt the global economy and cut into corporate pro“ts, and then rallied when Wall Street felt that negotiations would resolve the disputes with little to no economic harm. Thats contributed to a volatile stock market this year, after the unusual calm of 2017. Big swings have come day to day, and even hour to hour, as investors try to get a sense of what will happen with trade. When the market hasnt been whipsawed by the trade drama, its found comfort in strong corporate earnings and U.S. economic growth. As a result, the benchmark S&P 500 index is down less than 1 percent since late February. Some companies have been hit hard. Machinery makers like Caterpillar and Deere have taken losses as investors expect they will have to pay more for aluminum and steel parts, and that tariffs on their “nished products will hurt sales overseas. Companies that make pork, consumer goods and liquor have also come under pressure because they might be targeted by retaliatory tariffs. Meanwhile the smallest stocks have done very well. Many investors have concluded that small, U.S.-focused companies are less vulnerable to tariffs than the multinationals in the Dow and the S&P 500, and that the U.S. might have stronger economic growth than other countries in the months to come. Smaller companies tend to do far more business at home than multinationals do. Other stocks are also coming out ahead. Technology companies have made huge gains recently, helped by strong earnings and analysts view that businesses will continue to spend more money on technology in the years to come. While technology companies make a lot of their sales outside the U.S., investors feel tariffs are less of a threat for tech companies than they are for machinery makers. Trade issues will be front and center as leaders from the Group of Seven countries meet in Quebec Friday and Saturday, but investors arent expecting any big breakthroughs. Experts think the disputes and market swings could continue for a long time.By MARLEY JAYAP MARKETS WRITER RICHARD DREW/AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 11, 2016, le photo, specialist Anthony Rinaldi is silhouetted on a screen at his post on the oor of the New York Stock Exchange. Fears of a trade war have given a boost to some of the biggest companies in the market as well as the smallest, but theyve squeezed almost everything in the middle.
