She is well on her way to recovery after a 10-hour surgery removed her diseased lungs and replaced them with healthy ones. Otero was born an albino, making her susceptible to certain diseases. After coughing and other symptoms had her seeking treatment, she was misdiagnosed by local doctors who insisted that she had allergies. Finally, a friend suggested she see a lung specialist. In 2012, she was diagnosed with pulmonary “brosis because of Hermansky Pudlack Syndrome. She was forced to use oxygen all day. I still did everything on my own,Ž Otero said. I just did it slowly.Ž HPS is a genetic metabolic disease that causes albinism and has nine different categories called Types.Ž Each Type affects a different set of organs. Ortero is a Type 1. After the proper diagnosis, Ortero consulted with University of Florida Health „ Shands in Gainsville and was put on a transplant waiting list. Shands put her through two dry runsŽ in order to prepare her for the operation. The third time she was prepped for surgery but the lungs were no good. But later that day she got another call saying the doctors had a new set of good lungs. I was ready and excited,Ž Otero said. The donor was anonymous to protect the family. I cant know anything,Ž Otero said. They give them a year; sometimes the donor family will want to meet the recipient but I cannot get in touch with them. We have to give them time to grieve.Ž Her immediate recovery was marred by fever and swelling. They didnt wake me up for seven days,Ž Otero said. They couldnt “gure out why I had the fever.Ž Upon waking, she was confused because she was on so many medications and she felt awful. She said she started having some doubts. In the beginning it was dif“cult, the room was dark and nobody was talking to me, and my hands were so dry that they felt like foam,Ž Otero said. I told the nurse, I dont want to live like this, I wanna go to heaven, just let me go. Then I started praying to God. I said, Lord, you promised me a miracle. Whats going on? I cant live like this.Ž Ortero feels that God was listening to her outcry and delivered her a miracle. I went to sleep and when I woke up, my hands were “ne; I started feeling better. After that, day by day, I was encouraged. I am breathing on my own, with no oxygen, and wake up with no pain.Ž She was discharged on June 13 but has to rent a townhouse in Gainesville to be near her doctors and physical therapists. The apartment is $1,700 per month. Otero stays positive with the help of her family and her faith. Seriously, its just praying in the presence of God: Reading my Bible, worshiping and giving God the glory A new lease on lifeBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERFaith gets local resident through double lung transplantSEBRING „ County commissioners, who have a regular meeting Tuesday morning, will hold a special meeting Tuesday night, just for a hearing on the proposed “re assessment. The meeting starts 5:30 p.m. in the county commission chambers at 600 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring. Its the second and “nal public hearing on assessment rates before theyre “nalized. County of“cials expect to see a big crowd. County Attorney Joy Carmichael, in conversations with Government Services Group Inc. (GSG), has said the consulting “rm suggested using the second Board of County Commission meeting in June to “nalize the proposed “re rate. Owners of homes, buildings and open land received notices, starting May 20, about the proposed rates, which for some represented a threeto four-fold increase. First-year rates, as proposed, are: € $91 per year per house/ apartment. € $24 per year per vacant residential parcel. € 15 cents per square foot for commercial use. € 5 cents per square foot for industrial use. € 18 cents per square foot for institutional use. The consulting “rms rate study suggests rates could go up each year. Jeff Rackley, senior project manager for GSG, said needs outlined by the countys Fire and EMS Work Group advisory committee coupled with projected population increases could push the bill to $115 per year per home „ $24 higher than $91 „ in “ve years. County commissioners voted Feb. 20 to accept the rate study, but have waited until now to set the rate. The “nal deadline is actually Sept. 15. The county needs time to include the new assessment in the certi“ed tax rolls for the Highlands County Tax Collector in time for the new “scal year, which starts Oct. 1.Fire assessment hearing Tuesday nightBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Although Florida takes pride in ranking as one of the top vacation spots in America, it ranks as one of the deadliest states for the number of drugor alcohol-related fatalities. According to a new report from, Florida ranks 12th for the number of fatalities related to drug or alcohol use. studied data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and published its “ndings in a recent report on the most commonly used drugs that are implicated in vehicle crashes. The report used statistics from 2007 to 2016, the most recent years available for analysis. It shows mixed results, with some types of drug-related fatalities decreasing while other types are increasing. Over the last 30 years, the number of people being killed or seriously injured as a result of a drunk driver has decreased by one-third, according to the National Highway Traf“c Safety Administration. However, the NHTSA reports that 10,000 people die every year from drunk-driving crashes, and the costs associated with these crashes is $44 billion. According to the report by Alcohol. org, the risk of being injured or killed by an impaired driver increases on Saturday and Sunday. On Thursday, as people are approaching the weekend, the risk of intoxicated drivers begins to rise. Peak crash times are from midnight to 3 a.m., the time when most bars close their Florida ranks 12th in drug, alcohol fatalitiesBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERCOURTESY PHOTOFlor Orteros smile is like a breath of fresh air after her double lung transplant surgery.

The day was started in June 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations, according to the District of Columbia, Of“ce of Aging. Protecting those who raised us seems like it would be a no-brainer. However, in 2017, Highlands County had 262 cases of elder abuse, according to the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce. Fortunately, the number is down from 348 cases the previous year. WEAAD was started so communities could share information and awareness about the different types of elder abuse and prevent it. Some forms of elder abuse are “nancial, physical, verbal and neglect, emotional and more. Florida Hospital Director of Home Health Services Becky McIntyre urged her co-workers and friends to wear purple on Friday. The color symbolizes respect, dignity and royalty. McIntyre said the signs of elder abuse can be subtle. Caregivers should be on the lookout for things that are not the norm for their loved one.ŽŽFor example, under the neglect category, if they are normally well dressed and they have good hygiene and now they are not taking care of themselves and losing weight.Ž Another example McIntyre gave was not wearing a jacket when they would normally wear one. Some of these things can also be dementia, so you really have to be careful and look for changes in that person,Ž she said. Financial abuse and exploitation is huge with scammers. Look out for people who are trying to get into their lives very forcefully.Ž Be on the alert for depression and isolation. Unexplained bruises and broken bones can point to physical abuse and should be investigated further. McIntyre said the elderly person should be approached and talked to away from the suspected abuser. I want people to know that this is not as uncommon as people think,Ž McIntyre said. Executive Director for Nu-Hope Elder Services Ingra Gardener said the effects of elder abuse are far-reaching. Elder abuse is a health and social malady that affects the entire community,Ž she said. Elder victims are violated; however, the community suffers the consequences. There is no face of elder abuse. It affects seniors of all socio-economic statuses and must be brought to the forefront of discussion. Nu-Hope works in partnership with Department of Children and Families to address allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation with the provision of case management and comprehensive services.Ž Suspected abuse can be reported anonymously and there are agencies and websites devoted to the topic: € National Center on Elder Abuse, € Adult Protective Services at € Eldercare Locator, € Department of Children and Family 1-800-96-Abuse or dcf. state.”.us/programs/ abuse/report.shtml.Elder abuse remains a serious problemBY KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITERWorld Elder Abuse Awareness Day aims for preventionAVON PARK „ As the City of Avon Park addresses requests from the Boys and Girls Club, residents called for the city to take over the Martin Luther King Recreation Center and afterschool programs. Highlands County Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors President Tim Brinling explained that the Boys & Girls Club was hit very hard by the hurricane and the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota County has been helping. In 2016 the city approved a lease agreement allowing the club to operate its afterschool programs at the MLK Complex. City Manager June Fisher said there are four issues that need to be addressed: The club wants the city to remove two portables from the MLK Complex property, the club is seeking donations for naming rights to the building and interior rooms and wants the indoor exercise equipment removed, and the city wants to close an hour earlier. Fisher said the portables were damaged by Hurricane Irma and illegal activity has been occurring in them. In a May 8 email to Fisher, Mike Doyle of the Sarasota Boys and Girls Club said that then city manager Julian Deleon suggested the city would remove the portables if the club sent a letter of release, which it did. Doyles email notes that the Boys and Girls Club of Highlands County is bankrupt without funds and they are trying to resolve their “nancial situation and help the under-served children of Highlands County. The portables were donated by the School Board of Highlands County. It was noted that it was not the citys responsibility to remove them, but Councilman Jim Barnard said it was in the best interest of the city to do so. Councilman Terry Heston agreed, saying they are an eyesore. The city was going to look into who has title of the portable structures before taking action. Resident Al Hinson said the Sarasota Boys and Girls Club ran the Highlands County club so poorly that it went bankrupt. Resident Arnold Davis said as a taxpayer he was shocked at the fees the club wants to charge for using the “elds at the complex. Resident Nikita Hipps said the Sarasota club has taken over our children and our building.Ž The children dont want to go back, she said. Hipps said the city should take back the afterschool programs. Now the club wants to charge $100 an hour to use the “eld, she said. Those prices are outrageous.Ž Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray said she would not support a name change nor the removal of the exercise equipment. The City Council took no of“cial action on the matter.AP has issues with Boys & Girls Club requestsBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER MARC VALERO/STAFFThe City of Avon Park has been in talks with the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota concerning the clubs requests for the Martin Luther King Complex.

Monday, June 18, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3 On May 1, when commissioners set Tuesdays hearing date, Carmichael said notices would go to institutional properties, such as churches, even if commissioners later decide to exempt them. However, agriculture and government properties would not receive notices, Carmichael said: They are exempt by Florida law. GSG estimates the county needs to raise $6.48 million with the assessment to pay for needed personnel, apparatus, equipment and infrastructure. Commission Vice Chair Jim Brooks has warned that exemptions on government, agriculture and school land could cut revenue to $5.71 million, or as low as $4.85 million, since not everyone pays. The proposed budget includes: € $894,405 for personnel (salaries, overtime, bene“ts, retirement and insurance) € $1.6 million for operations (contract services, repair, maintenance, supplies, education/ training and reserves) € $821,799 for capital improvements (machinery, equipment, engines, tankers, brush trucks and stations) € $2.55 million in improvements (new personnel, training, gear and stations) € $636,502 in additional costs (2 percent fee to Highlands County Tax Collector, discounts for early payment, fee study and sending tax notices) GSG said the county answered 1,011 calls in 2016, the last year for which full data was available. That broke down to 529 to residential properties, 234 to open land, 117 to commercial land, 99 to institutions and 32 to industrial-zoned areas. Dividing costs by the percentage of calls to each land use, GSG apportioned assessment at 52.32 percent for residential, 23.15 percent for open land, 11.57 percent for commercial, 9.79 percent for institutional and 3.17 percent for industrial/warehouse uses. However, since Rackley made his presentation, newly-appointed Public Safety Director Marc Bashoor „ who worked voluntarily with the county on the assessment „ has said the county also needs to consider newer larger “re stations. Bashoor has said a lot of the countys facilities are in bad shapeŽ and are that way because the county hasnt been able to invest in them. He said most, if not all of county Fire Services and Emergency Medical Services stations, need upgrades to function for a paid/volunteer combined system. Most, he said, do not have living quarters, and all need upgrades in air-“ltration to remove exhaust from the buildings, as well as more bays for more vehicles.FIREFROM PAGE 1 and honor. Because of him I am here.Ž Otero will “nd herself surrounded by friends and her church family soon; she thinks she will be back in Sebring in two months. Flor and I have been friends for many years,Ž Maylene Candelario said. In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. As I began my journey my family and friends stood by my side every step of the way. Flor is one of those that always had a word of encouragement to help along the way. She is a champion in my eyes. In spite of her own challenges Flor has always kept a smile in her face and cheering for others in their time of need. Flor is sel”ess and always willing to help in any way that she can. She has an amazing sense of humor that is irresistible. She is a true example of resilience.Ž Once Ortero is home, she plans on staying active by walking, although she admits that she will not be participating in any triathlons any time soon. With her new lungs she plans on speaking out and raising awareness of HPS to the community, especially physicians. A dinner fundraiser is being held from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, June 30 at the Womens Club of Sebring, 4260 Lakeview Drive, A Night in ParisŽ is the theme; there will be dinner, entertainment and a silent auction. The cost is $30 and will help to defray the cost of Oteros medical and transportation costs. Call 863-991-3657. Donations can be made to Otero through her home church, House of Change. Please mark donations in the memo line or place her name on envelope. LUNGFROM PAGE 1 doors. Impaired drivers leave the bars and head for their cars. Extreme caution should be used by drivers who work evening or night shifts since they are sharing the road with drivers who are drugged and drunk. However, people must remain vigilant at all times, because there are crashes caused by impaired drivers every day of the week and during all hours of the day. Fentanyl, a drug used in anesthesia and pain management, showed the sharpest percentage increase in the number of fatalities associated with its use over the past decade. Although pop stars Michael Jackson and Prince did not die in crashes, both of these rock stars had high levels of fentanyl in their blood when they died. This powerful drug can profoundly impact a drivers ability to remain alert while driving, especially since Medline Plus lists drowsiness, changes in vision and unusual thinking as some of the side effects. To keep our local roadways safe from impaired drivers, law enforcement agencies are stepping up DUI citations. In addition, our county offers several drug and alcohol treatment centers to aid people who desire to be on the road to recovery.DRUGSFROM PAGE 1 DRUG AND ALCOHOL REHABILITATION CENTERS IN HIGHLANDS COUNTY1.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 18, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comProposed fire assessmentI have served as a “reman for the past 40 years, all of it as a volunteer with the Placid Lakes VFD. As a “re service, we have come a long way since I started. Are we where we could or should be? Maybe not. What we have done has been to serve you, the residents of Highlands County, at the level that you have supported. We all live and work right here with you. We know what you live on because we are right there with you. Thats a large part of why we volunteer. We feel that governments responsibility is solely to do the will of the people. When government starts thinking, it knows what is best in spite of us things go bad. The proposed “re coverage has a lot of potential. The funding proposal has major issues. They are looking at hiring up to 40 “re/EMT positions at approximately $1,000,000 annually for wage and bene“ts. The tax proposed will generate in excess of $7,000,000. From a business stand point, the product is 40 “remen. $6-plus million is operating and administration. A business would never make it under that model. This is year one only. Their own proposal says it will grow year by year. Where will it stop? $200 a year per residence, $300-$400. How big a bureaucracy is being created here? Right now there is no plan. As typical, the cart is before the horse. Lets see how much money we can get out of the taxpayers, then well “gure out how to spend it. Tell your commissioners to slow down and do what we really need, not what some might like. If asked we all would like a new car till it comes time to pay for it. They have proposed steep taxes on churches, agriculture and businesses. This is just another way of hiding the real cost from you. Its your money that churches survive on. Its your money that buys the goods that keep business and ag open. Churches will have to cut vital services, business will have to eat it out of pro“t or raise prices. It is still from your pocket.Mark Fortier Fire Chief Placid Lakes Volunteer Fire DepartmentGarden Club reviews yearSeptember „ No meeting due to infamousŽ Irma.

Watching the honorable Theresa May succently respond to a great variety of questions, (some barbed) with style and demonstrating her accumen, and detailed knowledge of her governments activities; not just with the ordinary day to day governmental concerns of the British government but also the Byzantine complications involving Brexit; the UKs departure from the European Union. With the speaker of the house calling OrderŽ in stentorian tones, when the Chamber exceeded its usual unruliness. She dominated the room, leaving no doubt as to who was in charge. I tried to envision President Trump being required to perform a similar function in interaction with our Congress. If he attempted to answer he would get all caught up in his rolling, repetitious, circulocutionary speech pattern, until (he hoped) the question had been forgotten, and he could roll up his red tie and escape. When pressed for an answer, he would repeat his performance, roll his eyes and “nally say Thank You,Ž the usual lame “nish used for cabinet meetings. Too busy to make up a lie. Those are known as alternative factsŽ in the White House. Too busy, theres tweeting to do.Randy Ludacer Lake Placid Before approving the “nal piece of a “nancial package that brought the Atlanta Braves to a new ballpark in the West Villages, some North Port city commissioners expressed concern their city would play a distant backup in marketing and promotion. Commissioners Linda Yates and Debbie McDowell raised numerous technical concerns about the contract being presented in 2017. They questioned language that dealt with bonding. They questioned the city of North Ports prominence in marketing and publicity. They questioned whether site plans properly re”ected multipurpose “elds that would be used for local recreation. Both ended up voting no,Ž despite the reality the city was getting a heck of a deal with the new $125 million spring training baseball park and year-round sports academy. North Port was to contribute $4.7 million to the project. By comparison, Sarasota County kicked in $21 million. The state of Florida added $20 million. The Braves organization itself was on deck for more than $55 million. All in all, the citys slice was peanuts. Or Cracker Jack. Thankfully, the three-member City Commission majority voted yes,Ž and the package was approved. Construction of the stadium/training facility is now well underway and should be ready for the “nal game of the 2019 spring season. The Braves will move in for good in 2020. And North Ports gain? Already, it is being felt. According to a recent story, people from Georgia „ the home of the Braves „ are inquiring about homes here. Snowbirds are planning vacations. Bill Gunnin, executive director of the Greater North Port Chamber of Commerce, said business professionals are talking about moving closer to the ballpark. And the team „ currently at the top of the National League East „ wont be here for a full-season until 2020. West Villages-North Port is a sizzling hot spot.

And last weekend came the dead “sh ashore on Manasota Key. The scourge of the seven seas is back in our region. Three months after the “rst outbreak of the year, red tide is here again. Or Karenia brevis, if youre a sucker for Latin. Or X@#&*!, otherwise. Red tide is a naturally occurring phenomenon that has appeared and disappeared as long as natural phenomena were recorded in Southwest Florida. Always present to a small degree in the background, Karenia brevis algae blooms with nutrient loading. This red tide may have been fueled by the heavy spring rains and runoff; analysis will come later. We also note the phenomenon is not fully understood by scientists. Thats why research (and funding for that research) is needed at top scienti“c institutions like Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota. It may be impossible to stop the occurrence, but deeper understanding coupled with runoff controls could help to tame it. „ Sun NewspapersThe scourge is back


Monday, June 18, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. When George Sebring and his son H.O. purchased land for a new town in central, Florida, they immediately began recruiting residents. They wanted to encourage a religious in”uence. They made special inducements to leaders and retired persons of religious denominations. The “rst buyers of land and lots included a large number of members of the Salvation Army of which George Sebring was a member. Next, the Methodist denomination was encouraged and following that came a substantial number of members of the Brethren Church who at one time became a powerful force in the life of the community. Church organizations were offered free of cost, a building lot to any denomination who would establish a church. And George Sebring didnt put them on the outskirts but gave them choice property in the heart of town. (A prime example of this today is the closeness of the Salvation Army to the Circle.) And when fundraising began for a church, George Sebring made it a practice to offer the “rst and last $100. The following are comments by George Sebrings grandson, Orvel Sebring, during ceremonies on the Circle for the 50th Anniversary of Highlands County in 1971. It may have been the winter of 1910 or 1911 that I was “rst taken to what was to be the town of Sebring. I can remember the day the Circle was plowed. That was quite a thing for a little boy seeing the mules at work with the plows, followed later by teams with scoops grading the Circle.Ž You have no idea how beautiful it was in Sebring in 1910 and 1911. Lake Jackson was a jewel. The lake had a beautiful white sandy bottom. One of our favorite pursuits was wading along this “ne sandy shore looking for arrowheads and usually you were rewarded. (One of the early hotels was named the Arrowhead Hotel built by George Sebring for this reason.) There were beautiful bay trees where Jackson Creek ”owed out and in the spring, you could smell the scent of magnolia.Ž If it hadnt been for the Model T Ford, Sebring would never have come along as it did. The Salvation Army of“cers and soldiers,Ž the Munselles, the Dunkards, the Bakers, Higgins, Gearing and Newcomb families, members of the Stephan/Whitehouse family and all others were prominent in their contributions to the organization and its Sebring mission in starting a town.Ž From: The Newcomb and Baker Collections July 1976„Sebring Historical Society Elaine Levey can be reached at emlevey@ a town Elaine LeveyHISTORICALLY SPEAKING COMMUNITY CALENDAR TODAYAmerican Legion Post 25 in Lake Placid Cafe 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Chips ahoy 2 p.m. Call 863-465-0975.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, June 18, 2018 My eyes are driving me crazy and I thought Id share what I know with you in case you are feeling the same way right about now. For me, its a triple hit from the smoke generated by “res nearby in Colorado, the ragweed pollen and some drywall dust kicked up when I demoed a “replace in my new home. Heres a sample of what Ive been doing to tame the red so that people stop asking if I was up all night drinking, lol, which I was not I assure you! I cant list everything here due to space considerations, so if youd like the complete list of my home remedies, sign up for my newsletter at and Ill email it to you on Tuesday. 1. Dry up. Take an oral antihistamine such as Loratadine (Claritin). I am taking about a half tablet daily with a natural supplement which Ill tell you about in my longer article at my website. Now that youve got your antihistamine on board, proceed to step 2. 2. Wash your eyes. Irrigate your eye with saline and a sterile eye cup. Your local pharmacy, department store or online retailer has Bausch & Lombs brand of eye washŽ or irrigating eye washŽ or a similar brand of saline that comes with an eye cup. You do not want contact lens cleaner, you want to basically rinse your eye out. Its similar to opening your eye underwater in a pool, you just have to do it. 3. Apply a cold compress. Take a clean washcloth, dip it in ice water and wring out, then apply. I like to take them and fold the washcloth in half, then roll it up tightly. The ends of the washcloth will now “tŽ into your eye socket, and it is such sweet relief! Be intelligent and apply sparingly. You just want to cool your eye for a few seconds, dont hurt yourself. 4. Get the red out. You can choose what you like, or can afford. I use various ones including Zaditor because this lasts 12 hours and contains a histamine blocker only (Ketotifen), whereas most eye drops contain an antihistamine as well as a vasoconstrictor. If youre looking for that type of combination, try Opcon or Visine, or their store-brand generic equivalents, which will save you money. 5. Lie down and breathe. Buy an eye pillow, preferably unscented and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes. You can always store yours in there, thats what I do. Put it on your eyes and just breathe. 6. Look like a diva. Cucumber slices on the eyelidsƒ you see this all the time in spa pictures, and the reason is that cucumbers reduce eye in”ammation and theyll temporarily hide the fact that you pulled an all-nighter last night, played with your neighbors cat or went horseback riding through ragweed. You can apply them topically, or better yet, juice cucumbers along with some carrots and celery and drink it.

Backpacks should not weigh more than 15 percent of a childs body weight. That means for a student who is around 60 pounds, a backpack should be no more than nine pounds. Wearing two straps on shoulders as well as a waist strap can help distribute backpack weight. Multiple compartments also can help spread the weight of books, devices and supplies to reduce strain. Did you know?METRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS MCT PHOTOBackpacks should not weigh more than 15 percent of a childs body weight. That means for a student who is around 60 pounds, a backpack should be no more than nine pounds. Although there are a variety of theories behind the growing obesity problem plaguing North American adults and children, the most consistent “ndings point to caloric intake as the culprit. Heres a simple equation to get to the root of the problem: Calories eaten > calories spent = weight gain. According to National Health Examination Surveys, adult obesity trends in the United States between 1976 and 2014 indicate the percentage of the adult population classi“ed as obese has roughly doubled to more than 38 percent in the last three decades. Children may be learning eating habits from their parents, potentially contributing to rising obesity rates in children as well. Recent “ndings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate one in “ve school-aged children and young people in the United States is obese. In Canada, the Public Health Agency says roughly one in seven children is obese. Teaching children healthy eating habits starts at home and can extend to what students are given to eat while at school. The Center for Science in the Public Interest says schools across the country are working hard to improve school nutrition. Heres how parents and school districts can help make school lunches more nutritious and delicious and lower in calories. €Control snack intake. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that more than one-fourth of kids daily caloric intake comes from snacking. Choosing smarter snacks may help reduce overeating. Good snacks can include grain products that contain 50 percent or more whole grains by weight; snacks in which the primary ingredient is a fruit, a vegetable, dairy product, or lean protein; snacks that are a combination food that contain at least a 1/4 cup of fruits or vegetables; and foods that contain no more than 200 calories. €Read nutritional information. When selecting foods for school lunches, parents should read the nutritional information to make sure they know exactly what they are feeding their children. Select foods that are low in saturated fats and cholesterol and high in “ber and nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. €Go with water. Rethinking beverage choices can help control kids caloric intake. Many people dont realize just how many calories beverages add to their daily intake. Even a six-ounce, 100-percent apple juice can include as many as 96 calories. Sodas and other soft drinks pack a hefty caloric punch. Water, seltzer and unsweetened iced tea are healthy beverage options. If milk is the go-to beverage, choose a reduced-fat version. €Introduce new foods. Children can be notoriously picky eaters, but with patience and perseverance, parents can introduce new, healthy foods at lunchtime. Yogurt, hummus and salsa are healthy and can add ”avor to vegetables and fruit. When making sandwiches, exchange re“ned breads for whole-grain varieties. Choose lean protein sources, and go heavy on vegetables and fruits for natural “ber, which will create feelings of satiety. €Read the school menu. Let children indulge in ordering from the school menu when healthy options are featured. Urge them to try something unexpected, rather than sticking to chicken nuggets or pizza days.Healthy school lunchesMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS TNS PHOTOWith patience and perseverance, parents can introduce new, healthy foods at lunchtime.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 18, 2018 Cornerstone Hospice honored with excellence awardTAVARES „ Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has received an Excellence in Program Innovation Award … Clinical Practice from the Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Association (FHPCA) for its Nurse Onboarding Program. It is one of six hospice agencies across Florida to receive Awards of Excellence at the recent FHPCA 2016 Forum. The program was developed in April 2017 to help educate and acclimate new nurses to the hospice environment while familiarizing the new employees to Cornerstone Hospices internal processes and culture. The new nurses shadow an experienced Cornerstone Hospice nurse as he or she interacts with patients, family and other members of the Cornerstone interdisciplinary team, which may include home health aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and physicians. We had key objectives in developing the Cornerstone Hospice nurse onboarding program,Ž said Nadia Soulouque, director of training and professional development. We want to ensure new hires are comfortable working in a hospice setting and that they become pro“cient with the necessary documentation required by Cornerstone Hospice and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. We also wanted to facilitate an early sense of camaraderie for the new hires and enhance job satisfaction.Ž We are in a highly competitive environment where there is a nursing shortage across the board. Combined with Cornerstone Hospices signi“cant and steady increase in our daily patient census, it is critical that we recruit skilled and compassionate nurses to care for our patients,Ž said Chuck Lee, President and CEO of Cornerstone Hospice. Since implementation of the Cornerstone Hospice Nurse Onboarding Program, turnover of nurses has declined 18 percent. Ultimately, these positive results mean our patients and family receive a higher level of care in all of our coverage areas.Ž The FHPCA Excellence in Program Innovation Award recognizes services and programs provided by a hospice organization that demonstrate the power of creativity and ingenuity to impact the practice and the community.

To learn more about Florida Hospital Health Partners providers, visit and YourHealthSpecialist. org.Meet Health Partners Lake Placid providers SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN CHEEAWAI ONYISHI ARCENAS TORRES ROA Why does it happen? How does it happen? We have all been there ... excited about a new job, a trip, endeavor, or maybe just a great idea ... then we share that enthusiasm with others and then it happens. Almost everyone is excited for you. But for many of us there may be a nay sayerŽ in the group. You know, a Negative Nellie.Ž We are all unique. We have different ideals, goals, attitudes, wants and needs. This is true with every aspect of our lives. This is true also true with our health needs. Just as we have speci“c prescriptions for our eyesight, we also have personalized prescriptions for the correction of our hearing and speech understanding capabilities. Dont let others interfere with your success and happiness. Not in your personal aspirations and dreams, and certainly not with your strides of obtaining the best hearing possible. I have experienced, many times over the years, a patient in distress because a well meaning yet negative friendŽ or relativeŽ or maybe just an acquaintance has tried to convince them that the hearing instruments they have purchased are wrong for them. The nay sayersŽ or Negative NelliesŽ actually tell them it is not the style that they need. They also infer that they probably got ripped off and could get them cheaper. Many people will price shop,Ž so of course they always tell them they could have gotten them cheaper. (The only problem with this is that you must compare apples to apples, that is technology levels and patient care, professional knowledge, and “tting protocols). Another big attack that seems to happen to the new hearing aid user is the Why would you want to wear a hearing aid?Ž To that I usually just sigh and start the counseling process. Dont let others undermine your success and your happiness. Recently I experienced such a situation. Actually, all of the above, with just one patient. I felt so very bad for my patient. They had been somewhere else before coming to us. The patient chose us. A new hearing aid user will take several adjustment appointments to get the best from their new instruments. Everyones hearing needs and capabilities are different. Their activities and sensitivity index is unique. Everyones tolerance levels are speci“c. During the “rst week of having the “rst set of hearing aids that they had ever worn (the “rst set was a few years ago and apparently they took them back cause they couldnt get used to them), the nay sayerŽ systematically undermined our patients con“dence in the decision that we made together. A decision that was made with diagnostic testing. A decision that was made with patient pro“ling and counseling. A “tting of hearing instruments where speech understanding is veri“ed in noise. Where real ear measurement ensures our prescriptions are precise to patient needs. Even with all that, it takes wearing the instruments in all of our crazy fun environments to get used to them and for the instruments to record sound data for us so that we can adjust the instruments speci“cally for each patient. After spending the time to explain and listen and adjust the instruments over the last few weeks, our patient told me today: I am just thrilled with my hearing aids. I am just so thankful you explained everything and worked with me!Ž This was a person who was ready to throw in the towel two weeks after the “tting, primarily because of the Negative NellieŽ friend. How sad that would have been that my patient would have gone several more years not understanding people in the active world she still enjoys. Dont be the Negative Nellie.Ž Life is hard enough when you get a hearing or a vision problem. Communication becomes dif“cult and it is so important to our well-being. Instead, be the encourager ... the Optimistic Ollie!Ž The Positive Pal. If you are afraid that your friend or relative is not getting what they need or being taken care of properly then accompany them to their appointments. I know we encourage it. Remember, like all things medical, it takes team work to achieve our ultimate goals. You make educated and informed decisions. Dont let others undermine your feeling of competence.

Strengthening the back, legsLengthening and strengthening back muscles by practicing Boat PoseŽ helps to build self-con“dence, as it takes focus and determination. When the posture is initiated successfully, the Yoga practioner is working to strengthen weak abdominals, and thighs and arm muscles, reducing stiffness and pain in everyday activities. Boat PoseŽ is this wonderful, challenging posture that brings more oxygen to the lower extremities and awakens a deep sense of relaxation after holding the posture for “ve breaths. Every Yoga posture, when slowly and correctly practiced with accompanying deep inhales/ exhales through the nose, brings a sense of accomplishment. Holding a pose and repeating it “ve times gradually increases strength and perfection. Boat PoseŽ targets the abdominals, building core strength as it aligns and lengths the back. Often pain from anxiety or overstretching muscles results in stored negative energy in the back and core. The back muscles speakŽ to the abs as they move in concert for bending, standing tall, twisting, walking and running. The human body structure is aligned through a strong back and core or abdominal muscles. If the back is weak so are the abs. Thus, practicing Boat PoseŽ aligns the back muscles to support the abdominals and uses the arms and neck to extend longer in alignment with the thighs. LETS PRACTICE BOAT POSE: 1. Begin by sitting on the ”oor with a tall spine, straight and lengthened. 2.Place each hand, palm down evenly by the hip pointing forward. Press downward to take any bends out of the elbow. Observe with your inner eyes if you are in the shape of an L.Ž 3.Slowly lean back onto your sitting bones,Ž not the lower spine, raise both legs with toes pointed up into a V angle, toes extended forward even with the forehead. 4.Raise both arms by the knees, extend them long and straight. Keep the back straight and legs tight as well as the abs to complete the posture.. Be sure to keep the neck and head in a straight line with the back. 5.Hold the pose for a count of 10 and repeat “ve times; rest. A modi“ed version for those who “nd this posture dif“cult is to just raise the legs and bend the knees. Still keep the arms extended long on the outside of the legs with a straight lengthened back and tight abdominals. Look up with your eyes to the ceiling, spreading the forehead wide to take away tight facial wrinkles. Breathe slowly and deeply. Let all the anxieties of tension go as you create positive tension through the core and back when holding/concentrating on the pose. Smile while you so this pose as a smile is proven to change energy from negative to positive. All Yoga postures improve our physical/mental/emotional well-being when we practice over time. PracticeŽ helps to increase muscle memoryŽ so each time we do a Yoga pose we observe small nuances that we can initiate to improve the posture. Remember to enjoy Yoga practice every time you throw out your mat and thank yourself for working to improve your mind and body! Have fun!YOGA FOR LIFENANCY DALE adno=3568378


B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 18, 2018 Cataracts are the most treatable form of blindness worldwide. Millions of cataract surgeries are performed each year, restoring patients to functional visual status. Cataract surgery was once the most common surgical procedure performed until about 5-10 years ago, when intraocular anti-VEGF injections were developed to treat macular degeneration. This has quickly surpassed cataract surgery and continues to grow quickly. Over the years, cataract surgery has advanced greatly. Now, most cataract surgeries can be done with micro-incision surgery using foldable lens implants with no shots, no stitches, and no patches after surgery. Frequently, patients have better vision without glasses after cataract surgery. Multiple lens implant choices are available as upgrades, including implants for correcting astigmatism and bifocal lens implants. These implants are considered add-on procedures and are not covered by Medicare or insurance companies. We are fortunate to have laser-assisted cataract surgery available in our area. Laser procedures soften the cataract and make several of the incisions needed for surgery with a laser, making them more precise and making the surgery gentler on the eye with quicker recovery. Patients experience only 10-15 minutes of surgery time and a twoto three-hour outpatient surgery center visit. A New England Journal of Medicine study published in the early 2000s found that medical risk with cataract surgery was unchanged whether the patient had a systemic workup with EKG and blood work or not, unless the patient had an MI, stroke, or other major heart, lung, brain or vascular procedure within three months, which would require a medical clearance for surgery. Since the vast majority of cataract surgeries can be performed under topical and intraocular anesthesia with IV sedation and monitored anesthesia care, patients systemic medications, including blood thinners, rarely need to be stopped. With IV sedatives, the anesthesiologist can keep nearly all patients comfortable and steady for outpatient surgery under the microscope. Rarely, general anesthesia is needed. Cataract surgery has come a long way. With all the advanced choices now available for cataract surgery, discussion with the patient and family is important in determining the best course of action.

The News Wire Monday, June 18, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Giuliani says Muellers inquiry should itself be investigatedS ee page 2. VALENCIA, Spain „ An aid groups ship and two Italian military vessels docked Sunday at the Spanish port of Valencia, ending a weeklong ordeal for hundreds of people who were rescued from the Mediterranean Sea only to become pawns in a European political “ght. The Italian coast guard vessel Dattilo was the “rst of the boats in the convoy bearing 630 migrants to touch land, pulling in just before 7 a.m. The 274 rescued people on board disembarked after medical staff made a preliminary inspection. The rescue ship Aquarius came in four hours later carrying another 106 migrants. Aid workers awaiting their arrival clapped and cheered as the “rst passengers walked down the gangway. An Italian navy ship, the Orione, came in shortly after 1 p.m with the remaining 250. The Aquarius, operated by the aid groups SOS Mediterranee Sea and Doctors Without Borders, was stuck off the coast of Sicily on June 9 when Italys new populist government refused it permission to dock and demanded that Malta do so. Malta also refused. After days of bickering and food and water running low on the ship, Spain stepped in and granted the rescue boat entry with a plan called Operation Mediterranean Hope.Ž The 930-mile journey across the Mediterranean from Sicily to Valencia took nearly a week. After Spain invited the Aquarius to land, Italy sent the Dattilo and Orione to help transport the migrants. David Noguera, the head of Doctors Without Borders in Spain, said he was glad Spain welcomed the ships passengers, who were picked up off the coast of Libya. He said he is worried that more European nations will Rescue ships dock in Spain as migrant debate roils EuropeBy RENATA BRITO and IAIN SULLIVAN and JOSEPH WILSONASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ A top White House adviser on Sunday distanced the Trump administration from responsibility for separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, even though the administration put in place and could easily end a policy that has led to a spike in cases of split and distraught families. President Donald Trump has tried to blame Democrats, who hold no levers of power in the government, for a situation that has sparked fury and a national debate over the moral implications of his hard-line approach to immigration enforcement. Nobody likesŽ breaking up families and seeing babies ripped from their mothers arms,Ž said Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president. Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new zero-toleranceŽ policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are. The administration wants to send a message, said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican critic of the policy, that if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you. Thats traumatizing to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country.Ž Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the New York real estate mogul into the Oval Of“ce in 2016. The House is expected to vote this week on a bill pushed by conservatives that may not have enough support to pass, and a compromise measure that the White House has endorsed. Conway rejected the idea that Trump was using the kids as leverage to force Democrats to negotiate on immigration Trump adviser: Nobody likes family separation policyBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSKABUL, Afghanistan „ Hopes for an extension after three days of holiday cease-“re between Taliban forces and the Afghan government ended Sunday when Taliban forces resumed attacks. The Taliban attacked in the Afghan provinces of Helmand and Kandahar as night fell. Although the Taliban had said it would not prolong the cease“re, despite government offers, some observers expected the Taliban to wait until Monday before launching new attacks. Afghan security forces were targeted in the attacks, broadcaster 1TV and news agency Pajhwok reported. Millions of Afghans celebrated the cease-“re and Eid al-Fitr over the weekend as surreal scenes of brotherhood unfolded between Taliban militants and government of“cials. The cease-“re was the “rst since the groups fall from power in 2001. In doing so, they had agreed to brie”y halt their offensives against the Afghan government „ what the militants consider a puppet regime.Ž TRENTON, N.J. „ Two gunmen opened “re at an all-night arts and music festival early Sunday morning, sending people running over each other in the scramble to safety, authorities said. One suspect was killed and 22 people were injured. Of 17 people treated for gunshot wounds, four of them, including a 13-yearold boy, remain in critical condition late Sunday morning, said Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri. The shots rang out around 2:45 a.m. during the Art All Night Trenton festival that showcases local art, music, food and “lms. Onofri says the suspect who was killed, 33-year-old Tahaij Wells, was recently released from prison and was on parole since February 2018 on homicide-related charges. The second suspect is in custody. He said a neighborhood beefŽ is behind the shooting.

The U.S. Attorneys Of“ce for the Northern District of California said late Friday that Holmes and her chief operating of“cer Ramesh Balwani, are charged with two counts conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud. Holmes, a Stanford University dropout once billed as the next Steve Jobs,Ž founded Theranos as a blood-testing company. However investigations into the company showed its testing results to be wrong or deeply inaccurate. The Securities and Exchange Commission brought civil fraud charges against Holmes and Balwani three months ago. Holmes settled with the SEC. Balwani is “ghting the charges. RADFORD, Va. (AP) „ One of three people injured during a ”ash “re at the main propellant-manufacturing facility for the U.S. Department of Defense has died. The Joint Munitions Command of the U.S. Army says Andrew Goad died Saturday due to injuries sustained during last weeks blaze at Radford Army Ammunition Plant in Virginia. The 42-year-old man of Dublin, Virginia, worked as a group leader at the facility. In a statement, plant commander Lt. Col James Scott said Goad made the ultimate sacri“ceŽ while doing the dangerous workŽ of producing munitions.

(AP) „ A 46-year-old grandmother strangled a rabid bobcat to death after the animal attacked the woman in her front yard in northeast Georgia. The Athens-Banner Herald reports DeDe Phillips of Hart County went outside on June 7 to take a picture when the bobcat lunged at her. She then grabbed the cat by its throat and didnt let go. Phillips says she grew up in the country, where her fatherin-law was once a trapper of bobcats. As a result, she knew something about the animals behavior. Phillips says she was afraid of calling for help because her 5-year-old granddaughter AUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ A U.S. Army spokesman says of“cials have narrowed to “ve the number of cities under consideration to house a prestigious command center thats meant to modernize Army operations and technology. Col. Patrick Seiber tells the Austin American-Statesman that Austin, Texas, is a “nalist for the Futures Command headquarters along with Boston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Raleigh, North Carolina. Seiber says 10 other cities „ including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and Seattle „ are no longer candidates. A “nal decision is expected by the end of June. The Army wants the center to be near experts in technology and innovation who can “gure out emerging threats and what equipment will be needed to answer them. The complex will have a staff of roughly 500 people, led by a four-star general. ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) „ Hundreds of Atlantic City casino workers who lost their jobs when their gambling houses shut down are going back to work. Two of the “ve casinos that closed since 2014 are reopening this month. The Trump Taj Mahal is becoming the Hard Rock, and Revel is becoming the Ocean Resort. Ramona Moran lost her cocktail server job when Revel closed, but shes been hired for the same job at Hard Rock. She never expected to be working in a casino again. Together the two new casinos will restore over 6,000 of the 11,000 jobs that were lost. WASHINGTON (AP) „ An FBI agent who was removed from special counsel Robert Muellers team after sending anti-Trump text messages says he is willing to testify before Congress. A lawyer for Peter Strzok told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte in a letter Sunday that his client is willing to testify before his panel or any other committee that invites him. Strzok was criticized in a recent Justice Department inspector general report for creating an appearance of con”ict because of text messages he traded with another FBI employee. Strzok was involved in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was later added to Muellers team. He was removed last summer once the messages were discovered. His lawyer, Aitan Goelman, NEW YORK (AP) „ American Airlines has agreed to pay $45 million to settle a lawsuit that says it and other major U.S. airlines colluded to drive up the price of airfares. In settling the case, American denied any wrongdoing. The company, in a statement, said “ghting the case in court would be costly. Earlier this year, Southwest Airlines also reached a settlement in the case, agreeing to pay $15 million. Southwest also denied any wrongdoing. The lawsuit alleges that major U.S. airlines colluded to limit capacity in order to increase ticket prices. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps attorney said Sunday that special counsel Robert Muellers investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election should itself be the subject of a Justice Department examination. We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump administration has been investigated, and wed like to see a report with the conclusions,Ž Rudy Giuliani said on CNNs State of the Union.Ž The comments followed his statements Friday that the presidents legal team was looking into a Justice Department inspector generals report to determine whether they could make a case that Muellers investigation is invalid because of “ndings of bias at the FBI. Mueller is investigating Russian meddling, possible collusion with people around Trump and whether the president sought to obstruct justice. Im not really saying the special counsel. Im saying what led up to the special counsel. I dont think Mueller and his people need to be investigated unless something comes out of that,Ž Giuliani said. Remember, youve got a bunch of odd things that led to the appointment of Bob.Ž Trump and his allies are using last weeks release of the inspector generals report on accusations of misconduct at the FBI as fresh fodder to undermine Muellers investigation. Trump said Friday that the Mueller investigation has been totally discredited.Ž The report from the inspector general focused on decisions by former FBI Director James Comey in the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clintons email server „ well before Trump “red Comey and Mueller was named to take over the separate inquiry.

The Sun /Monday, June 18, 2018 Page 3 FROM PAGE ONEThe Taliban and the government kept their pledges not to “ght. In the western province of Herat, the police chief met Taliban of“cials for a friendly conversation. In Kabul and other cities, “ghters with black turbans rode the streets on motorbikes, stopping for photos and conversations with residents. The display of fraternity between Taliban and government of“cials was interrupted over the weekend with two attacks in Afghanistans eastern Nangarhar province in which at least 55 people were killed and 115 others injured. At least 19 people were killed Sunday when a suicide bomber targeted a gathering of about 1,000 people supporting the cease-“re in the Nangarhar capital of Jalalabad. At least 50 others were also injured, said Attaullah Khugyani, a spokesman for Nangarhars governor. Taliban “ghters, security forces and civilians were also targeted during cease-“re celebrations Saturday in Nangarhars Rodat district. At least 36 people were killed and 65 others were injured there when a suicide bomber attacked their gathering. No one claimed responsibility for Sundays attack, but Islamic State said it carried out the Saturday attack in Rodat. The group, which is hostile to the Taliban, has a main base in Nangarhar and apparently wanted to sabotage the successful peace initiative to conclude the fasting month of Ramadan. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid reacted to the attacks with a statement Sunday that banned the groups “ghters from public gatherings, for fear that could risk harm to civilians. Defense Ministry spokesman General Mohammad Radmanish said the groups “ghters were still celebrating in cities throughout the country. The Talibans leader, in an Eid message, repeated the Talibans demand for talks with the United States, which leads the NATOs military mission in Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani offered an extension of the cease“re Saturday beyond the Eid holiday, with Afghan security forces halting all offensives against the Taliban. Ghani also requested that the Taliban extend their cease-“re, during which the Afghan government would provide medical assistance to wounded Taliban “ghters and allow family visits for militant prisoners.TALIBANFROM PAGE 1close their ports to migrants who are rescued at sea. I have mixed feelings,Ž Noguera told The Associated Press as the “rst boat arrived in Valencia. I am happy that the journey (for the Aquarius migrants) is over „ a journey that was too long „ and I am worried for the situation in the Mediterranean and the closing of European ports.Ž The migrants were met by emergency workers, health of“cials, Red Cross volunteers and psychologists at the citys marina. Each was assigned to a translator, and authorities worked to determine their identities before they were sent to welcome centers. The “rst person through the process was a 29-year-old man from South Sudan. In total so far, there were 31 different nationalities represented, with the largest numbers of people coming from the Sudan, Algeria, Eritrea and Nigeria, according to Spanish authorities. There were also 68 minors, 46 of them traveling without an adult family member. Valencia emergency of“cial Jorge Suarez said some of the migrants were in a state of shock. They are very shaken,Ž Suarez said. Put yourself in their position: you get off a ship and the “rst people who greet you are wearing masks.Ž Physical exams did not reveal any serious health problems, but many passengers showed signs of exposure to high temperatures. A total of 144 were taken to hospitals for treatment of minor health issues. David Beversluis, the chief Doctors Without Borders physician on the Aquarius, said several of the rescued women were victims of sexual violence and rape. The horrible stories that we hear from people who come out of Libya is gut-wrenching,Ž he said. Spending time with people, listening to some of the torturous situations that theyve been through, was really one of the most challenging parts of the entire operation.Ž Spanish authorities are interviewing the migrants on a case-by-case basis to see who may qualify for asylum. Due to their ordeal, the people from the Aquarius were granted authorization to remain in Spain for 45 days before they must begin resolving their legal situations. We have to strike a balance between our sensibilities and humanity, and our respect for the law,Ž said Spains migration minister, Magdalena Valerio. These people could not be left adrift in the Mediterranean, where they would face death,Ž she told Spanish radio Cope. (The EU) must recognize that it needs an immigration policy that these times require.Ž Meanwhile, several hundred more migrants were aboard an Italian coast guard vessel off Sicily on Sunday. The passengers came from a series of rescues in recent days, including ones carried out by cargo ships that Italys Rome-based search-andrescue coordination center asked to aid migrant boats in distress. They also counted 41 migrants who were taken aboard a U.S. Navy vessel on June 12, survivors of a sunken dinghy. A private aid ship said it couldnt assume the unexpected passengers from Trenton because Italy wasnt assigning it a port within its navigational capacity. The rescued people stayed on the Navy boat for several more days before being transferred to the Italian coast guard vessel on Sunday morning. The destination wasnt immediately announced, but the coast guard said it wouldnt dock until at least Tuesday. Italys new interior minister, Matteo Salvini, thanked Spain for taking in the migrants who reached Valencia and said he wished the country would take in 66,629 more.Ž Salvini, who heads the rightwing League party, said that if France, Malta and Portugal also open their ports to migrants rescued from smugglers unseaworthy boats, well be happier.Ž The refusal by Italy and Malta to allow the Aquarius to dock has reignited a continentwide battle over how to handle immigration. Under the EUs asylum laws „ currently the subject of a major political dispute and under revision „ migrants must apply for asylum in the country where they “rst enter Europe. In practice, the policy has placed a heavy burden on Italy and Greece, where hundreds of thousands of asylum-seekers have arrived in recent years. Spains new Socialist government has taken up the cause of the migrants to demonstrate its commitment to protecting human rights. But overall, the European Unions 28 members have not agreed on how to handle the in”ux of refugees and migrants to Europe. The issue has put strong domestic pressure on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, provoked a spat between France and Italy and prompted eastern nations like Hungary and Poland to refuse to take in any migrants. The warmer weather has caused a spike in migration from North Africa to Europe. Spains maritime rescue service pulled 1,290 people from several dozen smuggling boats near the Strait of Gibraltar and the Canary Islands from Friday through Sunday. It also recovered four bodies and declared another 43 people missing at sea. At least 792 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean so far this year, according to the United Nations. Through the “rst “ve months of 2018, some 35,455 migrants reached European shores.MIGRANTFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOMigrants are checked by emergency workers after descending the Italian coast guard vessel Dattilo upon arrival at the eastern port of Valencia, Spain, on Sunday.

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the administration is using the grief, the tears, the pain of these kids as mortar to build our wall. And its an effort to extort a bill to their liking in the Congress.Ž There are other ways to negotiate between Republicans and Democrats. Using children, young children, as political foils is abhorrent,Ž said Sen Jack Reed, D-Rhode Island. Rep. Ben Ray Lujon, D-N.M., said Trump could pick up the phone and stop it today.Ž Even “rst lady Melania Trump, who has tended to stay out of contentious policy debates, waded into the emotional issue. Her spokeswoman says that Mrs. Trump believes we need to be a country that follows all laws,Ž but also one that governs with heart.Ž Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can “nally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,Ž spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said. The House proposals face broad opposition from Democrats, and even if a bill does pass, the closely divided Senate seems unlikely to go along. Rep. Michael McCaul, who helped write the conservative version with Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said he had spoken to Trump on Saturday and that the president is fully committed to both of these bills. Hes put the full weight of his of“ce behind it.Ž McCaul, R-Texas, said both bills satisfy Trumps main objectives. Trumps former chief strategist said Republicans would face steep consequences for pushing the compromise bill because it provides a path to citizenship for young DreamerŽ immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Steve Bannon argued that effort risked alienating Trumps political base and contributing to election losses in November, when Republicans hope to preserve their congressional majorities. I strongly recommend that we just wait until 2019, right, to address this,Ž he said, while defending the administrations practice of separating parents from children as an example of Trump making good on a key campaign promise. Rep. Beto ORourke, D-Texas, said he was working on legislation that would end the practice of family separation. Speaking from Texas, where he was leading a march to a town where a new tent structure for children recently opened, ORourke said we can do the right thing by this country and for those kids, and not do it at the price of a 2,000-mile, 30-foot-high, $30 billion wall, not doing it at the price of deporting people who are seeking asylum, deporting people in some cases back to certain death, not doing it at the cost of ending family migration, which is the story of this country.Ž The situation now is inhumaneŽ and un-American,Ž he said. The blame, he said, rests on all of us, not just the Trump administration.ŽSEPARATIONFROM PAGE 1 shares a parking lot with a supermarket, bank and laundry.

Jessica Love pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud as part of an agreement “led Monday. Love worked as a registered nurse case manager and regional director for Frisco-based Novus Health Services, which shut down several years ago amid the federal investigation. Court documents show Love participated in the overmedication of two patients, who died from the high dosages. Shes facing up to 10 years in prison. Love is expected to testify against Novus owner, Bradley Harris, and others charged in the FBI investigation. Court documents outline a scheme to admit as many patients into hospice care as possible and provide around-the-clock care, which Medicare would pay at a higher rate than it would for routine care. Hospice owners lose money if they have to provide patients with continuous careŽ for too long. Love said Harris, an accountant with no medical training, gave orders about patient care, including drug dosage amounts and when they should die. These directions included Bradley Harris instructing nurses to intentionally overmedicate bene“ciaries with medications such as hydromorphone and morphine with the intent to hasten their deaths,Ž Love said. Harris ordered these increase in medication because he wanted the bene“ciaries to die.Ž Loves admission also includes text messages between her and another nurse. In the messages, Love ordered the nurse to turn off a patients oxygen, increase Ativan and morphine and roll the patient onto their left side. Love texted that the technique works like a little charm.Ž The patient died within “ve hours, according to court documents. Love is the second person to plead guilty in the case.

Four victims were dead at the scene, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. A “fth person died at a hospital. Most of the occupants were believed in the country without legal permission. Boyd told San Antonio television station WOAI the driver and one passenger were believed to be U.S. citizens. The driver was among those hospitalized and he and the passenger were in custody. This, I think, is a perfect example, of why are borders need to be secured,Ž Boyd said.

The Sun /Monday, June 18, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Fifteen years ago, I had a successful brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer. Subsequent annual PSA results indicate minimal levels. I am 82 years old and in otherwise excellent condition, and generally very active. However, in the past few years I have had periods of considerable fatigue. My blood counts are within the normal range, but my testosterone is at a very low level. My family physician counsels against testosterone therapy because of the possibility of reigniting prostate cancer. This seems to be based on a long history of a causal relationship. A senior tness trainer at my squash club argues that quality of life is important, so I should try testosterone therapy and then watch my PSA levels carefully. He says this because there have been a number of more recent trials in which there seemed to be a changing view that there is no denite connection that testosterone therapy causes new cancer. He has several clients who have found renewed energy from testosterone therapy. I have reviewed endless articles on the topic, but nd nothing denitive. This may be dierent for males who have not had a previous history of prostate cancer. What's your opinion? „ R.T. ANSWER: I am glad your prostate cancer seems to be in remission. Brachytherapy is the use of implanted radiation "seeds" or "pellets" to destroy prostate cancer cells. I can't recommend a course of action that your own physician has counseled against, as he or she may have more information about you than I do. The reason you aren't nding any denitive articles is that there are no well-done scientic studies looking at people with a history of prostate cancer being treated with testosterone. A 2013 review looked at seven studies with a total of about 200 men with a history of prostate cancer treated with testosterone. Only one had an increase in PSA level suggesting recurrence; most men were able to get normal testosterone levels, and most but not all had improvement in symptoms. Fatigue is a common symptom in men with low testosterone but is not specic for low testosterone. Many conditions can be associated with fatigue. My own practice, in consultation with the patient's urologist, is to consider a trial of testosterone replacement in men who are thought to be cured of prostate cancer based on very low or nondetectable PSA levels, who have symptoms that are very consistent with low testosterone and who have a low level on laboratory testing. I agree that PSA levels should be checked carefully. Ultimately, it is a balance of risks. If the symptoms are bad enough to be worth a small risk of cancer recurrence, and for a patient who is able to weigh those risks himself and chooses to, I have cautiously prescribed testosterone. DEAR DR. ROACH: Can you give me your opinion on a pain relief pill called "arthro"? „ L.C. ANSWER: I found several brands with similar names ("arthro" is from the Greek word for "joint"), all of which contained one or more supplements intended for joint health, especially glucosamine, chondroitin, methylsulfonylmethane, collagen and turmeric. These individually are marginally better than placebo, but placebo works surprisingly well, meaning that a lot of people will get relief with these products, which are generally safe. In combination, there may be more eectiveness, but also a larger risk of side eects.DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been happily married for two years. We both want biological children later, when the timing is right. A while ago, some friends adopted a little girl from Russia. The girl was orphaned and badly in need of medical treatment. Our friends got her everything she needed and more, and I was touched by the experience of watching her develop into a happy, healthy child. I realized I had a desire to do something similar, so I told my husband I wanted to adopt a child. He immediately shot the idea down and said he'd never be interested in raising a kid that wasn't his. It broke my heart a little. I'm not willing to end my marriage over this, but how can I reconcile my hurt feelings and not feel resentful? „ Future Mama In Alabama DEAR FUTURE MAMA: Your friends were fortunate because not all adoptions are successful, and not all blended families are happy ones. Be glad your husband was honest with you, and consider starting your family sooner than you originally planned „ provided you and your husband are in agreement. DEAR ABBY: What's the polite way to get guests to leave at the end of the night? I'm a direct person, so generally I say, "Well, it's getting late now," or "I'm tired and would like to go to bed," but my husband keeps telling me I'm being rude. When inviting someone over, is it in poor taste to ask them to leave by a certain time? „ Rude Host In The East DEAR "RUDE": A variation on how you're handling this would be to say, "'John' and I want to thank you for coming, but we have to work tomorrow." For a guest to ignore that cue would be rude. An almost surere way to ensure guests are out by a certain time would be to make clear when they are invited that the evening will be "between 7 o'clock and 10." Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about being bombarded by organizations asking for money: "Dear Heloise: I understand that charities and other worthwhile organizations need money to operate, but I'm tired of the weekly phone calls and letters from these people asking me to donate money. "I live on a retirement income, and I donate once a year. Continually calling me for donations to a hospital, policeman's ball or other charity is annoying. Then, they in turn sell my name and information to other organizations, which start calling me. It's gotten to the point where I just hang up." „ Sarah H., Key West, Fla. When they call, tell them to remove you from their list of people. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I boil a gallon of water and pour it down the center of an ant mound to kill ants. No chemicals. „ Mimi T., Hanover, N.J.Man must decide if testosterone supplement is worth it Couple planning a family disagree about adoption Tired of giving away cash?Hints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

If you try to do good things „ or beautiful, truthful or interesting things „ then no matter what the outcome, at least youre spending your time doing something worthwhile. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Is life random or planned? Some doubt the randomness. Others wholly reject it. And still others count on it completely. As for you, youll do well not to gamble on randomness. Make a plan and stick with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Youre a designer, looking for inspiration. You dont have to set sail to an exotic location to get there, because your daily commute „ or even your bedroom „ will provide all the inspiration you need. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Theres a thread running through all of this, although you most likely wont see it now. Later youll be able to follow the thread through the pattern, and it will all make a little more sense. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The reason things wind up next to each other can be a function of random juxtaposition or the end result of a careful thought process. Either way, the way it lands will be lucky for you today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Like a slowloading, video-laden website, if you try too desperately to entertain, people will get bored waiting for something interesting to happen, and theyll just leave. So keep it simple. Less is more. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Cages take many forms. Even the most luxurious environments can be a prison if one cannot come and go at will. But youre not in a cage.

The rst step to nding someones secrets is having your own secrets and an intimate knowledge of the behaviors it takes to hide them. It takes one to know oneŽ is a sort of key today.

The other person isnt seeing it the way you do. Another way to keep things simple is to say nothing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) „ Delta Air Lines recently created a special flight to help a group of Belgian tourists reach their South Dakota vacation after experiencing travel delays. The Rapid City Journal reports that the tourists left Amsterdam on May 31 as part of a reward trip by the Dutch dairy cooperative FrieslandCampina. Inclement weather delayed the initial flights takeoff. Travelers met further delays due to short staffing at the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol checkpoint in Minneapolis, forcing them to miss their flight to Rapid City. Delta spokeswoman Adrian Gee says the airline had an empty 160-passenger jumbo jet and crew available to take the tourists to their destination near the Black Hills. She says it was the right thing to do for their customers.ODD NEWS Delta creates special flight for Belgian tourists ENTERTAINMENT TODAYLOS ANGELES „ The combined powers of superheroes, the Pixar brand and a draught of family-friendly “lms helped Incredibles 2Ž become the best animated opening of all time, the biggest PG-rated launch ever and the 8th highest “lm launch overall. Disney estimated Sunday that the “lm earned $180 million in its “rst weekend in North American theaters „ far surpassing industry analysts loftiest expectations which had the “lm pegged for a $120 million to $140 million debut. The previous animation record-holder was another Pixar sequel, Finding Dory,Ž which had a $135 million launch in 2016. It was Disneys live-action Beauty and the BeastŽ that held the record for a PG debut with $174.8 million in 2017. You dont get to this level of opening without appealing to everyone whether youre a fan of animation, superheroes or just out to have a good time and want to see a good movie,Ž said Cathleen Taff, the head of distribution for Walt Disney Studios. We had a “lm that had something for all ages.Ž According to Disney, adults made up 31 percent of the audience, families accounted for 57 percent and teens 11 percent. Incredibles 2Ž comes 14 years after The Incredibles,Ž which at the time boasted one of the biggest animated openings ever, and picks up right where the “rst “lm left off with the superhero family.

LOS ANGELES „ Chris Hardwicks cable talk show is on hold and he has withdrawn as moderator of AMC and BBC Americas Comic-Con panels, AMC Networks said Saturday. The company said it had a positive working relationship with the host and producer but takes seriously what it calls troublingŽ allegations by his former girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra. In an online post, she lodged claims of sexual assault and emotional abuse against a man whom she didnt identify. But she included details about his age and work history that led some to link her allegations to Hardwick, who acknowledged Dykstra was referring to him as he denied her claims. I was heartbroken to read Chloes post,Ž Hardwick said in a statement provided Saturday to The Associated Press. He said the couples three-year relationship was imperfect and included arguments, but he loved her. Hardwick said he did my best to uplift and support her as a partner and companion in any way and at no time did I sexually assault her,Ž adding that he was devastatedŽ and blindsidedŽ by her post accusing him of conduct that he said didnt occur. As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women,Ž he said. AMC Networks said Talking with Chris HardwickŽ wont air on AMC while it assesses the situation and that Hardwick decided to step aside from next months Comic-Con panels in San Diego. Hardwick gained attention as host of AMCs Talking Dead,Ž a talk-show companion to its The Walking DeadŽ drama series. The initial public fallout to Dykstras post Thursday involved Nerdist, which Hardwick founded as a podcast and then expanded into a digital network that was acquired by Legendary Entertainment. His name has been removed from the Nerdist website, which said the behavior claimed in the post by Dykstra is contrary to what it stands for. In a statement, Legendary said references to Hardwick as Nerdists founder were deleted pending further investigation. It said Hardwicks contract expired in December 2017 and he no longer has any af“liation with Nerdist or Legendarys digital media division.AMC Networks: Hardwicks talk show on hold amid allegationsBy LYNN ELBERAP TELEVISION WRITER HARDWICK PHILADELPHIA „ Warner Bros. is cracking down on local Harry Potter fan festivals around the country, saying its necessary to halt unauthorized commercial activity. Fans, however, liken the move to Dementors sucking the joy out of homegrown fun, while festival directors say theyll trans“gure the events into generic celebrations of magic. Philip Dawson, Chestnut Hills business district director, said Warner Bros. reached out to his group in May, letting them know new guidelines prohibit festivals use of any names, places or objects from the series. That ruled out everything from meet-andgreet with Dumbledore and Harry to Defense Against the Dark Arts classes. It was very quickly apparent (we) werent going to be able to hold festivals like years past,Ž he said. The late October festival drew about 45,000 fans last year to the historic neighborhoods cobblestone streets. This year, they will instead have a wands and wizardsŽ family night and pub crawl and other magic-themed events „ and people can still dress as their favorite characters. Chestnut Hill isnt the only community to receive cease-and-desist letters from the entertainment company. Festival directors around the country, including in Aurora, Illinois, and Ithaca, New York, were also told the new guidelines would prohibit much of the Potter-themed activities, which are typically free events. Its all about protecting the trademark. Fans of the Philadelphia festival took to Twitter to try to get J.K. Rowling to help save the festival. A spokeswoman for the author said she has no comment. Ithacas Wizarding WeekendŽ grew from a small celebration in an alleyway in 2015 to a full-”edged Potter-fest hosting over 20,000 fans last year, said Darlynne Overbaugh, the festivals director. Warner Bros. sent her a letter in February. The festival crackdown is hardly the “rst time Warner Bros. has put the Avada Kedavra on Potter-themed fun. A woman in the U.K. was sent a cease-and-desist letter over a 2003 Hogwarts-themed dinner party she planned, with a guest list around 30. And a Los Angeles bookstore called Whimsic AlleyŽ was sued by the company over its overtly Hogwarts-ian wares, from chocolate frogs to Gryf“ndor scarves. They settled but the store ended up closing last year. The opening of Wizarding World at Universal Studios Hollywood worked as a killing curse for the mom-and-pop shop. Philadelphia Potter fan Sarah McIntyre thinks its ridiculous for Warner Bros. to target the festivals. Companies are always concerned about protecting their trademarks, said Gregory Mandel, professor of intellectual property law at Temple University. Warner Bros. has made a business decision to prevent these festivals from having any apparent association with them, and to prevent any possible pro“ting off the series, he said.Warner Bros. crackdown puts Dark Mark over Potter festivalsBy KRISTEN DE GROOTASSOCIATED PRESS USA TODAY BESTSELLERS1. The President is MissingŽ by James Patterson and Bill Clinton (Little, Brown) 2. The OutsiderŽ by Stephen King (Scribner) 3. Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culilnary UnderbellyŽ by Anthony Bourdain (HarperPerennial) 4. Shelter in PlaceŽ by Nora Roberts (St. Martins Press) 5. TurbulenceŽ by Stuart Woods (G.P.

The reality is that almost every move theyve made, going back to the end of last season, and in some cases further, has been about 2019 and beyond. Clearing out veterans, filling holes with shortterm replacements and, now, bringing up their elite prospects to gain valuable experience as they accelerate the transition. Competing sustainably in this division requires a deep and talented group of core players,Ž senior VP Chaim Bloom said. Right now were making sure to give opportunity to many of our young prospects to be a part of that core and to join the guys we already have in place.

One year after Koepka overpowered the wide fairways of Erin Hills in a U.S. Open remembered for low scoring, he navigated his way through the brutal conditions of Shinnecock Hills and closed with a 2-under 68 to become the first repeat champion in 29 years. Curtis Strange, the last player to go backto-back in this major, watched the entire final round Sunday as the Fox Sports reporter on the ground, and they shared a brief hug off the 18th green after Koepka tapped in for bogey and a one-shot victory. Man, it feels good to hold this thing again,Ž Koepka said with the silver trophy in his arms. His victory Sunday might not have been possible if not for grinding out a 72 on Saturday in conditions so severe the last 45 players to tee off in the third round didnt break par. The USGA conceded the course was over the top and pledged to give it more water and slow it down. Bogeys gave way to birdies, and no one took advantage like Tommy Fleetwood of England. He made eight birdies „ none on the two par 5s „ and missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 63, only the sixth player in U.S. Open history to go that low. Yeah, but I wanted a 62,Ž said Fleetwood, who finished one shot back and had to settle for the silver medal. Fleetwood was one shot behind when he finished, and Koepka still had 11 holes to play as Shinnecock Hills began to get crisp under another sunny sky. Koepka never lost the lead. With a putting performance and calm demeanor reminiscent of Retief Goosen when he won the previous U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, in 2004, the 28-year-old Koepka began the back nine with three pivotal putts „ one for birdie, one for bogey, one for par. The biggest might have been his bogey on the nasty little par-3 11th. Koepka pulled it to the left, down the slope and into thick grass. He chopped that up the slope with so much speed that it raced across the green and into the bunker. He blasted that out to 8 feet and made the putt to keep his lead at one shot.

At least this time, the defense came after the formula led his team to a victory. Wilmer Font held the high-scoring Yankees in check and the Rays stopped New York 3-1 Sunday to avoid a fourgame sweep. Were doing everything we can (and) what we think is right to win games,Ž Cash said. When we win, yeah, we like it. When we lose, its grueling.Ž In his third start of the season, Font turned in his best performance of the year in any role, allowing just one run in 4 2-3 innings with five strikeouts. The righthander, who also has eight relief appearances, matched a career-high with 74 pitches. Tampa Bay, which has been hurt by injuries to its rotation, employed a reliever to open for the 15th time in 29 games. Entering the game, relievers working as starters had allowed 13 earned runs in 18 innings. Today he gave us a huge boost,Ž Cash said of the 28-year old righthander. He probably got a little deeper in the game than what we even anticipated.Ž Matt Duffy drove in two runs with a secondinning single for his first multi-RBI game in over a month. The infielder, who missed 2017 while undergoing two Achilles surgeries, is hitting .352 (25 for 71) with seven RBI over his last 18 contests. I typically dont see CC too well,Ž Duffy said. That wasnt the greatest pitch to hit, but when youre going well, those seem to fall.Ž Carlos Gomez had an RBI double as Tampa Bay scored all three runs in the second against CC Sabathia (4-2).

Well, not everyone is in doubt. We will make it,Ž Germany coach Joachim Loew said. Theres no reason to fall apart because you lose one game.Ž Hirving Lozano scored the lone goal in the 35th minute, picking up Javier Hernandezs pass inside the penalty area and beating Mesut Ozil before shooting past Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer from 10 yards.By DENNIS WASZAK JR.Associated PressWHIPPANY, N.J. „ Morris Claiborne was in the middle of a walkthrough practice last summer when he got the call „ finally „ that he was eagerly anticipating. It was time for his twin daughters to enter the world. A New York Jets trainer had the cornerbacks cellphone and was tasked with letting him know if and when Claibornes now-wife Jennifer was heading to the hospital. I remember I saw the trainer walking on the field and he gave me, like, a look,Ž Claiborne recalled in an interview with The Associated Press at the familys home. I just ran. I took off running. I grabbed my phone from him and I went to Coach (Todd) Bowles and I was like, Coach, its time, and he was like, All right, congratulations. And I remember just running out of the building and running to the hospital, and when I got up there I just looked at her.Ž It was July 30, 2017, and Jennifer was 35 weeks along „ two weeks before her scheduled cesarean section. But her water broke while she was watching the couples two English Bulldogs outside their home. She had to immediately head to Morristown Medical Center, about 2 miles away. Meanwhile, Morris zipped from the Jets training facility in Florham Park to the hospital just over 3 miles away in time to be there to welcome his daughters. He came and it all happened within the hour,Ž Jennifer recalled. It happened so fast, it was scary.Ž Doctors performed the C-section and first delivered MaKaila, who was quite underweight at 3 pounds, 8 ounces. MaLiah came a few moments later, weighing in at a more robust 4 pounds, 13 ounces. MaKaila was immediately taken to the neonatal intensive care unit, separated from her sister „ and mother „ for the first time. I was asking, Is everything OK?Ž Morris said. They were like, Shes good. Everythings good. Its just that shes underweight „ too underweight. They wanted to take her back and start feeding her and try to get her to gain some weight.Ž MaKaila stayed in the NICU for the next two SEE BASEBALL, 2 SEE SOCCER, 6SEE CLAIBORNE 6 SEE RAYS, 2Tough course or easy, Koepka repeats as US Open champAP PHOTOBrooks Koepka reacts after putting on the 12th green during the final round of the U.S. Open Golf Championship, on Sunday in Southampton, N.Y.

But lets assume they go all in on the youth movement. And, as seems likely, by years end they trade their top remaining veterans, RHP Chris Archer and C Wilson Ramos. And they get whatever they can for the likes of SS Adeiny Hechavarria (soon), RHPs Nathan Eovaldi and Sergio Romo, OF Carlos Gomez, etc. And they clear out most, if not all, of the remaining arbitration eligibles such as RHPs Matt Andriese and Chaz Roe from the bullpen, and 1B/DH C.J. Cron and/or INF Matt Duffy from the lineup. That would leave them with CF Kevin Kiermaier making $8 million and most of the rest of the guys around the minimum $555,000, for a base payroll of about $22 million. That certainly would give them room to address some of the obvious holes. So what could that 2019 roster look like? Heres a way-too-early guess at the key pieces, players shown with 19 opening age: Starters LH Blake Snell, 26 RH Jake Faria, 25 LH Ryan Yarbrough, 27 RH Yonny Chirinos, 25 RH Andrew Moore, 24 RH Brent Honeywell,* 23 RH Jose De Leon,* 26 Injured, not back till midseason Our take: Assuming theyre still using starters, the key will be having enough depth to cover early as Honeywell and De Leon return by midseason from spring 2018 Tommy John surgeries. Bullpen LH Jose Alvarado, 23 RH Diego Castillo, 25 RH Ian Gibaut, 25 LH Colin Poche, 25 LH Jaime Schultz, 27 RH Ryne Stanek, 27 Our take: Theres always going to be shuffling, and theyll likely want a low-cost veteran or two and some multiinning coverage, but the stable of power arms is impressive. In“ eld Willy Adames, 23 Christian Arroyo, 23 Jake Bauers, 23 Daniel Robertson, 25 Joey Wendle, 28 Our take: The pieces seem to be here, and theyll use the rest of this season to see who plays where with Bauers at first. Assuming Adames is consistent enough at short, does Robertson play third with Arroyo and Wendle platooning at second? Or the other way around. Keeping Duffy (for $4 million) or Cron ($5M to $6M) could add some experience and offense, though rookies Kean Wong and Andrew Velazquez can provide depth and versatility. Out“ eld Johnny Field, 27 Kevin Kiermaier, 28 Mallex Smith, 25 Our take: The outfield prospects arent as advanced as the infielders, so they might add some short-term help, but they have some potentially good ones coming, led by Joe McCarthy, then Justin Williams and Jesus Sanchez. Catcher ??? Our take: After the penance of a 50-game drug suspension, Nick Ciuffo has limited time to show he could be ready to move up. More likely seems a short-term veteran or, even better, getting a top young catcher in a deal for Archer or Ramos. Inside view Adames and Bauers are the most promising of these prospects, and they are confident that based on what theyve seen and know about the young talent in the organization that good times are ahead. Adames: Its going to be pretty fun. ƒ We are winners. We dont like to lose. The guys that will be coming up, they are winners, too. We just have fun every time we are on the field together. ƒ The future for the Tampa Bay area, its going to be fun to watch. ƒ Its going to be amazing. Were going to have a great team. ƒ Were going to have a pretty good chance to go to the playoffs, maybe the World Series.Ž Bauers: It could be something special. ƒ You saw it last year when we won the championship in (Triple-A) Durham. ƒ Some kind of mix of what we have here and what we had in Durham. If you could mold those two teams together somehow, it could be something serious. ƒ I think a lot of people should be pretty excited about it.Ž Short stops € One interesting situation this week will be how the team makes room for the return of CF Kevin Kiermaier. Easiest, and short-sighted, would be to send down Johnny Field. But might it make more sense to part ways with Rob Refsnyder or even Gomez? € Another will be the timing of Archers return from the DL. The team needs him back from his abdominal strain in time to make a few starts in advance of the July 31 trade deadline but also needs him to pitch well when he returns. Archer seems willing to be patient, saying he wants to be sure hes fully healthy and needs time to build his arm back up.Rays rumblingsCongrats to Rays radio man (and all-around great guy) Andy Freed, who Saturday was inducted into the Trenton (N.J.) Baseball Hall of Fame for his five seasons broadcasting there. ƒ There is still no resolution on a new TV deal, with team officials saying a February report of an agreement was incorrect. ƒ Another casualty of low attendance at the Trop, some of the much-touted specialty concessions, such as the Rocco Ball Deli, are closed on quiet nights. ƒ Credit for the cool hash-tagged nickname #RakeBauers goes to RHP Jake Faria, who first tweeted it in spring 2017. ƒ Former Ray/current Cubs manager Joe Maddon has launched sales of prints from his Putting the Art back in Thee Game series, featuring the Mona Lisa, Dali and others, with proceeds to his Respect 90 Foundation. See ƒ The Athletics Jim Bowden says its unlikely but the Rays would trade LHP Blake Snell if the Braves or Yankees want to overpay with a boatload of prospectsŽ and that the Twins are a perfect matchŽ for a Ramos deal. ƒ A couple of leaguewide interesting tidbits from the owners meetings: expect to see some higher-profile two-game series played on weekends even if that means an occasional Friday off; and there continues to be at least talk „ the discussion/analysis phase,Ž per commissioner Rob Manfred „ of regulating defensive shifts.BASEBALLFrom Page 1By ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. „ Once Arkansas offense got rolling against Texas in the sixth inning, nothing could stop the Razorbacks. Not even the weather. Five straight batters had reached base when the teams were pulled from the field for a weather delay. When play resumed 2 hours, 49 minutes later, five more in a row got on base. What turned into an eight-run sixth carried the Razorbacks to an 11-5 win in their Co llege World Series opener on Sunday. We have such a balanced lineup, and we all know what were trying to do at the plate,Ž Arkansas Luke Bonfield said. Once Casey Martin had that leadoff hit after the rain delay, everything snowballed, and we got a ton more momentum and we never let up on the gas.Ž The Razorbacks (45-19) scored double-digit runs for the fourth time in six NCAA Tournament wins and had their highest total in 28 CWS games. The Longhorns (42-22), in the CWS for a record 36th time, lost their third straight Omaha opener since 2011. Bonfield delivered the first home run of the CWS with his two-run shot to left for a 3-2 lead in the fifth. Parker Joe Robinson took over for Texas starter Nolan Kingham (8-5) to start the sixth and walked the only two batters he faced. That started a parade of pitchers who either struggled to find the strike zone or got dinged for single after single. Texas hadnt given up so many runs in an inning this season. Im not shellshocked,Ž Longhorns coach David Pierce said. Its just part of it. Its not the way we wished it had gone. Unfortunately, it got away from us, and we couldnt overcome the deficit.Ž In all, Arkansas sent 14 batters to the plate and Texas used five pitchers in an inning that matched Arkansas biggest of the season. For the game, eight Arkansas batters had at least one hit and seven drove in a run. We went from down 2-1 to up 3-2 and it happened with two outs,Ž Razorbacks coach Dave Van Horn said. That was the swing we were looking for to get us going a little bit. And then, obviously, we set up the big inning, had a couple of runs in, had a rain delay, and came out and really just did a nice job scoring some runs there that gave us an opportunity to relax a little bit.Ž The Razorbacks swept the Longhorns 13-4 and 7-5 in Fayetteville in March, but this was the first time the old rivals from the Southwest Conference days had been matched in the CWS since 2004. Arkansas starter Blaine Knight (13-0), the Baltimore Orioles thirdround draft pick, allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out four while setting the school season record for wins. The 13-0 thing, I chalk it up as another win for the team,Ž he said. Ill do what I can to get a win for this team and keep us going.Ž Big 12 player of the year Kody Clemens, son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens and one of the hottest hitters in the postseason, was 1 for 5 with two strikeouts. Everyone is down right now,Ž Texas center fielder Tate Shaw said. Im sure every one of us will get over it. Its baseball. Got to forget.ŽGARRIDO TRIBUTEA sixth-inning video tribute to longtime Texas coach and NCAA wins leader Augie Garrido ended with fans for both teams standing to applaud. Garrido stepped down as coach after the 2016 season and ranked first in coll ege baseball wins until Florida State coach Mike Martin broke the record last month. Garrido won two national championships at Texas and three at Cal State Fullerton during his 48-year career. He died in March following a stroke. Pierce is wearing No. 16, Garridos number, for the entirety of the CWS. Pierce normally wears No. 22. I was able to talk to the players about it, and it was the same way we approached it from day one, understanding hes a huge piece of us,Ž Pierce said. Augie wouldnt want to be the center of attention, and he would appreciate the way weve handled it.ŽBASEBALL: College World Series Arkansas rides 8-run inning to 11-5 CWS win over Longhornswere aggressive,Ž Sabathia said. Tampa Bay defeated New York for the first time this season. The Yankees opened the season with five straight wins, outscoring the Rays 31-10 over the games, and was trying for a four-game sweep. The Rays are 5-18 in their last 23 games at Yankee Stadium. Chaz Roe (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the victory. Sergio Romo, who has also drawn five starts this season, closed for his third save in six chances. Rookie Willy Adames singled to lead off the Rays second. Adeiny Hechavarria, who missed nearly a month with a strained hamstring, singled for the first of his three hits. Gomez doubled and Duffy delivered a two-out single. Hechavarria also robbed rookie sensation Gleyber Torres of a base hit with dive and throw from shortstop in the seventh inning. New York matched its lowest run total at home this season. Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius worked twoout walks against Jose Alvarado in the fifth, but the hard-throwing lefty struck out Giancarlo Stanton on four pitches. In the eighth, Diego Castillo struck out Gary Sanchez on three pitches to strand another runner. Aaron Hicks homered off Font in the fifth „ it was actually the second homer of the day. Hours earlier, the Yankees held their 72nd Old-Timers Day and Nick Swisher, making his debut with the former players, hit a long drive to right field. Hall of Famers Whitey Ford and Reggie Jackson were joined by the likes of Don Larsen, Willie Randolph, Andy Pettitte and Jason Giambi. Current New York manager Aaron Boone also took part for the first time.UP NEXTRays: Tampa Bay will start a reliever for the third consecutive day when RHP Ryne Stanek (1-1, 2.55 ERA) draws the start as the Rays open a three-game series at Houston. Hell be opposed by RHP Gerrit Cole (8-1, 2.40 ERA). Yankees: New York heads to Washington for a makeshift doubleheader Monday. The teams will resume a suspended game from May 15 before a traditional nine-inning game follows. With heavy rain falling, play was halted after 5 1-2 innings with the teams tied at 3.RAYSFrom Page 1Monday, June 18 COLLEGE BASEBALL 2 p.m. ESPN „ NCAA College World Series, Game 5, Washington vs. Oregon St., at Omaha, Neb. 7 p.m. ESPN „ NCAA College World Series, Game 6, Mississippi St. vs. North Carolina, at Omaha, Neb.

The Sun / Monday, June 18, 2018 SP Page 3THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS NOT TYPICAL. By Ray Wilson Associated Health Press AHP Š A new sex pill is set to take the spotlight with the Viagra patent about to expire. But unlike the former, it wont require a prescription and is priced just under a $1 a dose. The new pill called Vesele is part of a new class of performance enhancers for men, which work instantaneously on the body and mind triggering arousal and “ rmer, harder erections. Formulated with a special compound known as an acceleratorŽ, Vesele can transport its active ingredients faster and more ef“ ciently into the blood stream, where it begins to work its magic. The patented ingredient blend initiates a process known as vasodilation, which causes arteries and vessels throughout the body to expand. This allows blood to ” ow directly to penis and genitals, resulting in harder erections which last longer. Cialis and Viagra are based around a simlilar concept. But what makes Vesele so remarkable, and what these other sex pills cant do, is that also directs a small portion of this blood ” ow to the brain, which creates feelings of intense arousal. In laymens terms, users become incredibly excited and turned on. This is why the makers of Vesele say their pill has worked so effectively in clinical trials. It stimulates the two most important organs for great sex, the penis and the brain.The Brain Erection ConnectionUntil now, medical researchers did not fully understand the brain-erection connection. It has now been made clear with Vesele When both are supplied with a constant blood ” ow, men are harder and “ rmer for longer...and have unbelievable sex drives. Most of the research and treatment methods for mens sexual failures have focused on physiological factors and have neglected the emotional ones. For the leading sex drugs to work, like Cialis and Viagra, you need visual stimulationŽ explains Dr. Henry Esber, the creator of Vesele And although they work for some men, the majority experience absolutely no ful“ llment during sex. According to research published by the National Institute of Health, 50% of men taking these drugs stop responding or cant tolerate their side effects...and on top of that they spend $50 per pill and it doesnt even work half the time. This is what makes Vesele so different and effective. It ” oods the blood stream with key ingredients which cause arteries all over the body to expand. The patented accelerator speeds up this process even more. The result is a rush of blood ” ow to the penis and brain, helping to create an impressive erection and a surging desire for sex. Often, this is all men need to get going. And when taken regularly, many men say they are energized and aroused all day.ŽGreat Sex At Any AgeWith the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Vesele in the US. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men across the country are eager to get their hands on the new pill and according to the research, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, men taking Vesele saw a staggering 85% imp rovement in erection hardness over a four-month period. Their erections also lasted twice as long. These same men also experienced an astounding 82% increase in the desire for sex (libido/sex drive) and an even greater improvement in overall satisfaction and ability to satisfy their partners. Many men taking Vesele described feeling horny and aroused through the day. The anticipation before sex was amazing. They were also easily turned on. Their moods were more upbeat and positive, too.Faster Absorption into the Blood StreamVesele is made up of three specialized ingredients: two clinical strength vasodilators and a patented absorption enhancer often called an accelerator. According to an enormous amount of clinical data, each is very safe. Research shows that with age, many men lose their desire and interest in sex. They also struggle to produce an erection “ rm enough for penetration. And although there are many theories as to why this happens (including a loss in testosterone) one thing is certain, inadequate blood ” ow is virtually al ways to blame. Thats why sex drug manufacturers focus on blood ” ow, it makes your erection hard. But whats more surprising, and what these manufacturers have failed to consider, is that lack of blood ” ow can also kill your sex drive. Thats because blood supplies energy for the brain. This energy is required for creating brainwaves that cause excitability and arousal. Studies show the Vesele stimulates the entire cardiovascular system, including the arteries that lead to both the brain and penis. The extreme concentration of the ingredients combined with the accelerator ensures that this process starts quickly. The sexual bene“ ts of Vesele are also multiplied as its ingredients build up in the system over time. This is why many men take it every single day. Recent Studies Show Positive Effects on WomenIn the same study referenced throughout, Vesele was also shown to have an amazing (and somewhat surprising) effect on women too. Thats because the same arteries and vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the brain and genitals are the same in men and women. In our most recent study, women taking Vesele saw a stunning 52% improvement in arousal and sex drive. Perhaps more impressive, they also experienced a 57% improvement in lubrication. You can imagine why some couples are taking Vesele together. Everything feels better. Everything works better. Everyone performs better. Its truly amazing.Ž A New Frontier of Non-Prescription Sex PillsWith daily use, Vesele is helping men (and women) restore failing sex lives and overcome sexual lets downs without side effect or expense. Through a patented absorption enhancer, the Vesele formula hits the bloodstream quickly, resulting in phenomenal improvements in erection “ rmness and hardness. By boosting blood ” ow to the brain, users also experience sexual urges and arousal they often havent felt in years. Where to Find VeseleThis is the of“ cial release of Vesele in Florida.

Luka Doncic, the 19-year-old Slovenian playing in Spain, is mentioned as a possible No. 1 overall pick. After Doncic is a group featuring Miamis Lonnie Walker IV as a possible late lottery pick, as well as first-round prospects in Oregons Troy Brown and Villanovas Donte DiVincenzo „ the Final Fours most outstanding player in April. Heres a look at the top wing prospects in Thursdays draft:Luka DoncicDoncic has the ability to stretch the floor with his shot and has the versatility to play at point guard or off the ball. STRENGTHS: Hes a skilled prospect with polished ability to score or run the offense as an adept passer. He has shown the ability to knock down outside shots with deep range and a stepback move. He can shoot over smaller guards, whether off the dribble or in the post, with a 6-foot-7, 220pound frame. He helped Real Madrid win a EuroLeague championship while averaging about 15 points, five rebounds and five assists. CONCERNS: As with any overseas prospect, theres the question of how well his game will translate to the NBA. Theres also uncertainty as to how hell match up with more explosive athletes.Lonnie Walker IVThe Miami freshman is athletic with the ability to score. STRENGTHS: While he averaged just 11.5 points, he got better as the season wore on. He was in double figures in 14 of the last 17 games after a slow start. He also has a sturdy frame, checking in at 6-4 and 196 pounds with a 6-10 wingspan at the combine. CONCERNS: He made just 34.6 percent of his 3-point tries and was inconsistent as a college rookie.Troy BrownThe 6-7 wing is Oregons first one-anddone freshman. STRENGTHS: Brown has the versatility to play at guard or small forward. He made his biggest impact on defense (team-best 55 steals) and on the glass (team-best 6.2 rebounds per game) with a roughly 6-10 wingspan. CONCERNS: The outside shot needs to improve. Brown made just 32 of 110 attempts from 3-point range (29 percent), including 14 of 60 (23 percent) after the start of 2018.Donte DivincenzoOne star-making turn in the NCAA championship game changed everything for the 6-5 redshirt sophomore out of Villanova. STRENGTHS: Look no further than that title-game win against Michigan that doubled as his personal highlight reel. He had 31 points off the bench in an impressive display of outside shooting (five 3-pointers) and athleticism (including a two-handed block of a dunk attempt). He also checked in with a combine-best 42-inch vertical leap. CONCERNS: DiVincenzo has a reputation as a bit of a streaky shooter and had a team-high 79 turnovers. And his rapid rise meant no one got to see him handle the challenge of being in a full-time leading role.NBA: DraftDoncic tops list of wings in NBA draftAP PHOTOSlovenias Luka Doncic, right, shoots a basket as Serbias Vasilje Micic tries to stop him during their Eurobasket European Basketball Championship final match, Sept. 17 in Istanbul. By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressSomeone is going to gamble on Michael Porter Jr. He insists itll pay off. There is an element of danger involved with every NBA draft pick, in that nothing is guaranteed. There isnt a player that epitomizes the risk versus reward thinking in this draft more than Porter Jr., who could get taken as high as No. 2 by Sacramento or go several picks lower because of uncertainty surrounding his health. Back problems that necessitated surgery limited his lone college season to three games at Missouri, and a scheduled Friday workout was called off because of hip spasms. Theres still a chance he will do a workout before draft night and teams have gotten access to new medical information that would seem to suggest hes ready for the NBA „ but still, skepticism may be understandable. Im feeling great,Ž Porter Jr. said. Find out Thursday night which team believes him the most. Hes 6-foot-10 and is usually categorized as a power forward, though in an NBA thats now largely positionless Porter Jr. could wear a lot of hats. Hes already shown a complete skillset „ passing, dribbling, shooting „ that would translate to playing basically anywhere except center. He weighed 211 pounds last month at the Draft Combine, meaning theres still plenty of room on his frame to add strength. His college highlights are basically nonexistent: Porter Jr. scored 30 points in 53 minutes of action with the Tigers. Porter Jr.s reputation is largely built on what he did as a high schooler when he was considered the best prospect in the country, and there was a workout earlier this month arranged by agent Mark Bartelstein earlier this month where he got rave reviews. He showed that hes alive and well and moving,Ž said Memphis general manager Chris Wallace, whose team has the No. 4 pick „ and has been linked to Porter Jr. by many prognosticators. I would say (he) passed that first test.Ž Alive, well and moving would seem to be the absolute basic prerequisites for a team to be satisfied about when preparing to use a lottery pick on someone, but Porter Jr. vows that whichever team grabs him wont be disappointed. I just feel like in todays game, theres guys that can do anything on the floor,Ž Porter Jr. said. And thats how I kind of view myself.Ž Porter Jr. played two minutes in his college debut in November, then underwent back surgery „ a microdiscectomy of the L3 and L4 spinal discs „ about a week and a half later. He returned for an SEC Tournament game against Georgia, then put up 16 points and 10 rebounds in Missouris loss to Florida State in the NCAA Tournament. The injury went back to Porter Jr.s sophomore year of high school, when he got hurt while getting hit on a dunk attempt. Hes a very versatile player,Ž former Georgia coach Mark Fox said. And Im thankful that the kids gotten healthy because he was a terrific talent. ... Hell be a top-five selection. I remember watching him in high school, and hes as complete of a player as there was at that level.Ž Thats what Porter Jr. wants NBA teams to remember before making their selection.NBA: DraftRisk vs. rewardMichael Porter Jr.s NBA draft spot anyones guess

Page 6 SP Monday, June 18, 2018 / The SunI think that was like making a birdie, maybe even making an eagle,Ž he said. Because it could have been a big momentum shift there, and we could have been playing tennis just going back and forth. To make bogey there was pretty incredible and I think kind of the reason why we won.Ž He wasnt through. He hacked out of the hay over the green at No. 12, pitched beautifully to 7 feet and made the par. Two holes later, after another drive into grass so thick he wasnt sure he could get it out, Koepka rolled in an 8-foot for another par save. Koepka seized control with a wedge to 3 feet for birdie on the par-5 16th for a two-shot lead, and he never flinched until it no longer mattered. Koepka pulled his approach to the 18th off the grandstand, pitched on to about 12 feet and two-putted for a bogey. He finished at 1-over 281, 13 shots higher than his winning score at Erin Hills last year. It was the first time since 2013 at Merion that no one broke par in the U.S. Open. I enjoy the test,Ž Koepka said. I enjoy being pushed to the limit. Sometimes you feel like you are about to break mentally, but thats what I enjoy. I enjoy hard golf courses. I enjoy playing about the toughest in golf you are ever going to play.Ž That it was, starting on Thursday, and especially on Saturday. Koepka opened with a 75, the highest first-round score by a U.S. Open champion since Raymond Floyd at Shinnecock Hills in 1986. He was 7 over for the championship through seven holes of the second round when he ran off six birdies for a 66 to get back in the game. Dustin Johnson, part of the four-way tie for the lead to start the final round, couldnt keep up with one of his best friends. Johnson was one shot behind at the turn until a trio of three-putt bogeys on the back nine. A birdie on the final home gave him an even-par 70 to finish alone in third and remain No. 1 in the world. Koepka moved to a career-best No. 4 in the world ranking. A year ago, Johnson called him on the eve of the final round to offer advice. On Sunday, they were playing side-byside without exchanging words, each trying to play a course that was considerably softer than the previous day. We didnt really speak too much,Ž Koepka said. He was busy grinding his tail off and I was busy grinding mine. Were extremely close. I love the guy to death. It would have been fun to dual it out with him coming down the end, having to make some putts.Ž Only one of them did, which is why Koepka is the U.S. Open champion. Americans have won the last five majors „ all of them in their 20s „ and Koepka joined an elite group as only the seventh player to go back-to-back in what is regarded as golfs toughest test. Next up is Pebble Beach, and a chance to join Willie Anderson as the only player to win three in a row. Anderson won his third straight in 1905. Ben Hogan won three straight that he played, missing in 1949 after nearly getting killed when his car struck a bus.GOLFFrom Page 1The goal decided the match „ a match Germany didnt expect to lose. I dont know if its the biggest victory in (Mexicos) history, but one of the biggest for sure,Ž Lozano said. My teammates and I did some great work. We all ran our hearts out. This is the result of all that hard work.Ž Three of the previous four defending World Cup champions failed to reach the knockout stages, France, Italy and Spain. Two of them lost their opening matches while the Italians had to settle for a draw. The Germans are bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962, but have now won only one of their last seven games in all competitions. They hadnt lost an opening game since the thenWest Germany fell 2-1 to Algeria in 1982. Mexico had never beaten Germany in a competitive match but was transformed from the team which lost to the Germans 4-1 in last years Confederations Cup, conceding twice in the opening eight minutes. Lozano, a 22-yearold forward nicknamed Chucky,Ž got Mexico going with a deflected shot over the bar in the first minute. That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmichs tendency to go forward. We were nervous and we werent playing the game we wanted to play,Ž Loew said. We need to see what caused this.Ž After Lozanos goal, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa pulled off a spectacular save to keep the score even, palming Toni Kroos shot onto the crossbar. With key players tiring in the second half, Mexico pulled back and substituted both Lozano and Carlos Vela. Germany then dominated but when it broke through the Mexican defense, the shooting was poor. Seeking defensive reinforcement, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio brought on 39-year-old veteran Rafael Marquez to play in his fifth World Cup. You had the feeling that the ball just wouldnt go in anyhow,Ž Loew said. Everyones very disappointed.ŽKEYS TO SUCCESSKimmichs charging runs far up the field can be a blessing and a curse for Germany. Lozano reveled in the space left for him on Mexicos left flank and was a constant threat on the counterattack. Kimmichs absence meant Ozil was left trying to stop Lozano for Mexicos opening goal. Germany registered 25 shots to Mexicos 12, but many were from long range and failed to seriously test Ochoa.WHY CHUCKY?Lozanos nickname comes from the haunted doll Chucky in the Childs PlayŽ franchise of horror movies. He doesnt share the dolls red hair, but got the name as a young player at Mexican club Pachuca when he played pranks by hiding under teammates beds.SOCCERFrom Page 1 weeks, working up the strength to be sent home to her parents and sister. For Morris, who was entering his first season with the Jets on a one-year, prove-it deal after four years with the Cowboys, it was a whirlwind of anxiety and excitement. Somehow, he needed to keep his mind focused on football, while also wanting to make sure his wife and daughters had everything they needed while he was working. Oh, man,Ž he said, shaking his head. Wed have meetings early in the morning and we had to stay over at the (players) hotel, but Coach was giving me a little time to come here and stay with (Jennifer and MaLiah) instead of going to the hotel. Id come (home) after meetings. Wed get done around 11 or so and Id come here, check on her and make sure everythings OK with her and then Id head up to the hotel for curfew and wed FaceTime all night.Ž Claibornes coaches and teammates never knew of the hectic routine he was keeping throughout the summer. Playbooks and Pampers. Meetings and feedings. Football and baby blankets. I dont care if it was 10 minutes, I live so close to the facility that I was running home every single break to check on them and see if everythings OK and then Id g et back to m y j ob,Ž he said. It was like that for a while, for the whole training camp. ... It was chaos, but it was fun.Ž Claiborne was in for the biggest surprise of all on Aug. 15 when he arrived home during a short break. I was like, Babe, come here, look,Ž Jennifer called out to him. I was like, Can you watch her real fast? And I was speaking of MaLiah.Ž But she had brought MaKaila home from the hospital earlier in the day and had both girls in the bed, laying them beside her with a video camera set on record to capture the moment. I wasnt expecting to see both of them at all,Ž a wide-eyed Claiborne recalled. I wasnt ready for it at all. When I walked in, I was so used to seeing her (MaLiah) in the bed when Id come in, and when I saw both of them laying there, my heart just dropped. I was like, Oh, my God. It really hit me: Weve got twins at the house. This is real now.Ž MaLiah and MaKaila are now 10 months old, healthy and full of personality. MaLiah, according to Jennifer, is the more demanding of the two, and shes a Daddys girl.Ž MaKaila is still slightly smaller than her sister, but is more independent „ moving around on her own, playing and feeding herself. It gave me a sense of what Im really playing football for, what Im really doing it for,Ž said the 28-year-old Claiborne, who re-signed with the Jets on another one-year deal in the offseason. Its for my family and bringing these two precious little babies into the world, it opened my eyes to a much bigger picture. Ive really learned that its not about yourself. Once you have kids, its about the kids, but I think I got a re-understanding of that once these two babies were born. I enjoy every moment of it.ŽAP PHOTONew York Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne (left) holds twin daughter MaLiah while wife Jennifer holds twin daughter MaKaila on Thursday at their home in Whippany, N.J.

CLAIBORNEFrom Page 1 By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Panama earned its first ever World Cup berth and couldnt wait to begin its adventure on soccers biggest stage. Then the team drew Belgium for its opening match. The Group G game in Sochi on Monday could be rather lopsided because Belgium, at least on paper, should be a contender for the title. The Red Devils have fallen short of expectations the last four years: Belgium lost in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship two years later. Panama, meanwhile, has never beaten a European team in nine previous meetings. The long odds have not tempered the excitement surrounding Panamas journey to Russia, and the nation has proudly supported the teams achievement in simply qualifying for the World Cup. The task Monday may be daunting, but memorable for an entire country. History is going to be made for the first time when we listen to our national anthem at a World Cup,Ž Panama captain Roman Torres said. Many people are going to cry. I think Im going to be one of those people, too, because of the emotion and to feel the significance of listening to the national anthem at a World Cup.Ž Belgium goes into the match with questions about its veteran lineup because of injuries to defenders Thomas Vermaelen and Vincent Kompany. Vermaelen was ruled out against Panama by coach Roberto Martinez with a hamstring injury, and Kompany was expected to be a late decision because of a groin injury. He also could miss the game against Panama but return later in group play. The match is at 6 p.m. (11 a.m. EDT; 1500 GMT) at Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi. A look at Sundays other matches: SWEDEN VS. SOUTH KOREA 3 p.m. (8 a.m. EDT; 1200 GMT) Tension began before Sweden and South Korea even hit the field in Nizhny Novgorod. Sweden coach Janne Andersson apologized to the South Korean team on Sunday because a member of his coaching staff attended a closed practice in Austria and was told to leave. Andersson said it was a misunderstanding and downplayed any potential harm. But it was a distraction neither team needs in a tough Group F with defending champion Germany and Mexico. Sweden is back at the World Cup for the first time since 2006, and its most famous player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, retired from international competition after the European Championship. ENGLAND VS. TUNISIA 9 p.m. (2 p.m. EDT; 1800 GMT) England has not won a World Cup match since 2010, which is not at all a drought compared to opponent Tunisia, which last won on this stage in 1978. Both teams feel they can do well in Group G, which includes Panama. The weakness of the group has increased pressure on England to make it to the knockout stage, which it failed to do in 2014 against opponents Italy, Uruguay and eventual group winner Costa Rica. Tunisia has been tested and was respectable in a 1-0 friendly loss to Spain. This is Tunisias first World Cup match in 12 years but it is still a storied team. Tunisia in 1978 became the first team from Africa to win a match at the World Cup. We are in form. We know very well we are in an extremely tough group but we have raised our game, especially in terms of our athleticism,Ž Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul said. Everyone has seen how well we have played in the warm-ups. We are determined to go down in history.ŽSOCCER: World CupPanama to make World Cup debut against strong Belgium teamBy JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. „ Dustin Johnson had a four-stroke lead after 36 holes and was still in striking distance heading onto the back nine in the final round of the U.S. Open. Instead of making a move, he lost ground. The 2016 champion three-putted three times on the back nine at Shinnecock Hills, shooting an even-par 70 on Sunday to finish third, two strokes back, as workout buddy and final-round partner Brooks Koepka claimed his second U.S. Open title in a row. When were all done, hes going to win another one,Ž Koepka said. I mean, we all know that. ... Hes one of the best to ever play the game.Ž After winning at Oakmont, Johnson missed the cut at Erin Hills last year. Unable to defend his title over the weekend, he called Koepka to give him advice on how to win the tournament. This year in the Hamptons, the two players worked out together before each of the last two rounds but kept things professional from tee to green. We talked a lot more when we worked out than when we were on the golf course,Ž Koepka said. I love Dustin. Hes one of my best friends. To play alongside him, it was fun today. I was excited about it. I figured he would be the guy to beat. But I didnt talk to him today,Ž Koepka said. Were both competitive. We both know were trying to beat each other and trying to win a golf tournament, trying to win a major. Theres a little bit of stress.Ž Koepka said the two talked about the break of the green on No. 3 but otherwise didnt chat during the round. Twotime U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange, who was walking with the group as part of the broadcasting crew, said he noticed that the two maintained their distance. But thats the way its supposed to be,Ž he said. If theyre best buddies, thats (whats) standing between me and the trophy. You dont care much for them for 4 hours.Ž The No. 1 player in the world, Johnson was the only one to break par in each of the first two rounds, and after 36 holes he seemed like one of the biggest obstacles to Koepkas chances of a repeat. No one had taken a four-stroke lead into the weekend and failed to win since Tom McNamara suffered a heat stroke on the 68th hole in 1909.GOLF: US OpenDustin Johnsons US Open hopes fade on back 9AP PHOTOIn this file photo from Oct. 10, 2017, Panama coach Hernan Dario Gomez celebrates with Roman Torres, who scored his teams second goal, after a World Cup qualifying soccer match against Costa Rica in Panama City.
