NEWS WIRE Keep your health aÂ”oat this summer with the latest edition of Well Being in the Heartland.DETAILS, Inside SPECIAL MAGAZINE SECTION SEBRING Â„ ÂYou canÂt tell me you canÂt be effective in eight years,ÂŽ said Greg Steube to Highlands County agriculturalists on Wednesday. It worked for his time in the Florida Legislature and he Â“gures it should work for Congress. ThatÂs why he signed a term limits pledge. Should the Florida state senator get elected to U.S. House of Representatives, District 17, he wants to make sure he doesnÂt add to what Scott Kirouac, chairman of the Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District board, termed Âa very broken, dishonest systemÂŽ in Washington D.C. Steube said he Â“nds it important for members of Congress to meet with other members of Congress who donÂt share their views, and to make best use of that time to build consensus. He served eight years in the Florida House, from 2010 to 2016, and two in the Senate from 2016 until this year. He said members of Congress should be able to make their mark in the same time frame, Steube visits county ag expertsBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING Â„ The therapy department at The Palms of Sebring created a purple wonderland in their facility for the inaugural AlzheimerÂs Awareness Day on Thursday afternoon. Purple is the color that represents AlzheimerÂs disease. Some 70 people visited the facility throughout the afternoon to learn about the memory-robbing disease and Â“nd resources to assist with the care of a loved one. When Crystal Loomis heard that The Palms was entertaining the concept, she asked to organize it. Straight out of the gate, she got the AlzheimerÂs Association involved. She printed the materials and created brochures for attendants. Loomis and the therapy team got to work calling businesses for door prizes. ÂAll of us at The Palms are so proud of Crystal and her team,ÂŽ Julia Mercer, director of marketing, said. ÂThey worked very hard to make this inaugural event a great success. We canÂt wait to do it again next year.ÂŽ Loomis addressed the audience and shared resources for those who have the tragic disease and their caregivers as well. Loomis had a personal stake in the dayÂs success as her great-grandfather died from AlzheimerÂs disease. Refreshments were offered and therapy dogs visited. Funds were raised for the AlzheimerÂs Association by selling memorial signs for a dollar. Visitors wrote the names of their loved ones who were affected by the disease and hung the signs on the wall. The Palms will be initiating a GoFundMe account to raise funds to be delivered to the AlzheimerÂs Association. In lieu of releasing helium balloons, most attendees threw bird seeds while others blew bubbles. Loomis felt that the signiÂ“cance was the same, honoring loved ones who are either going through the disease or who have lost the battle with it. Loomis has said that she wants to make the day an annual event. She is looking forward to evolving the awareness day to reach even more people. Loomis would like to see a support group form from the event as well. Every year, on the summer solstice, people across the country raise money for the association that is Â“ghting for a cure. Teams and individuals don purple and Â“nd an activity to do. Anything from climbing mountains, jumping rope and bake sales. Because the summer solstice is the longest day from sunrise to sunset, it is called ÂThe Longest Day.ÂŽ The idea is that the longer the day, the longer the fundraising. For more information on the fundraising efforts for the AlzheimerÂs Association at The Palms, call 863-385-0161, Ext. 3125.ÂThe Longest DayÂBy KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITERInaugural AlzheimerÂs Awareness Day a ÂsuccessÂSEBRING Â„ Friday marked the deadline for local citizens to enter races for local political ofÂ“ces: Seven qualiÂ“ed and three got elected already. Don Elwell, Bill Brantley and Jill Compton Twist, respective candidates for the Board of County Commission, District 2; and the School Board of Highlands County, District 4 and District 5, had no opponents who either Â“led or qualiÂ“ed. ÂAs such, I am automatically returned to ofÂ“ce for four more years,ÂŽ Elwell posted on Facebook late Friday night. ÂYou are indeed stuck with me for a little while longer.ÂŽ He went on to thank people for having faith in him, after two terms already, and pledged to continue listening, communicating and helping people in the county. Brantley and Twist did not immediately return phone calls for comment. The other races will go to a vote as early as the July 30 primary: Â€ County Commission, District 4: Incumbent Jack Richie faces a challenge from Lake Placid Town Councilwoman Arlene Tuck. Both are Republican. Â€ School Board of Highlands County, District 1: Incumbent Charlene Edwards will face a challenge from Isaac Durrance, who qualiÂ“ed.

The mango is one of the most cultivated fruits in tropical areas of the world. It is native to the South Asian areas of Eastern India, Burma and the Andaman Islands. 2. The mango fruit can come in various shapes, size and color including yellow, orange, red and green. 3. Mangoes contain many nutrients. The vitamin content depends on the variety and maturity of the fruit. When a mango is green and still growing there is a high vitamin C content; as the fruit ripens and matures the amount of beta carotene (vitamin A) increases. 4. Nearly half of the worldÂs mangoes are produced in India, but the country accounts for less than one percent of the international mango trade due to the fact India consumes most of its own production. 5. More fresh mangoes are eaten around the world every day than any other fruit.

Curley, 40, of Sebring, to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with incapacitating injuries. Sebring Police Sgt. Viviane Buck did not know his condition Saturday. Buck said he tried to turn his gray 2004 Jeep Cherokee onto Hammock Road, but he and 38-yearold Mark Lee of Sebring, southbound in a gray 2016 Nissan Frontier, had green lights. The pickup hit the Jeep in the right side, caving and Â”ipping it, she said. The jeep rolled, spun and landed on its left side at the southwest corner verge, facing north. Sebring city Â“re crews had to remove the roof to reach Curley. LeeÂs truck spun counterclockwise and stopped in the road, facing north. Buck said he had minor injuries. Emergency Medical Services took him to Highlands Regional Medical Center. TrafÂ“c snarled in the area for more than an hour, backing up side roads and parking lots as far away as Flare Road and Brunns Road. ItÂs still under investigation, Buck said, with no fault found yet. That location has a protected green arrow for left turns, which then changes to a green ball, allowing left turns if a gap in trafÂ“c permits it. ÂA lot of intersections are like that,ÂŽ Buck said. A similar wreck, but fatal, was on Feb. 3 at U.S. 27 and Bayview Drive. The driver of a tan Chevrolet Venture minivan tried to turn left onto Bayview across northbound U.S. 27 and got hit by a charcoal-gray Jeep Cherokee. The impact caved in the vanÂs passenger side and sent it tumbling, landing on its driverÂs side. It also had to have the roof cut open. Front seat passenger Vicki GrifÂ“th, 58, of Breese, Illinois, died in the wreck. The driver and another passenger were transported for treatment.T-bone-rollover injures driverBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER MELISSA MAIN/STAFFA 2004 Jeep Cherokee lies bent and crumpled late Friday afternoon on the southwest corner of U.S. 27 and Hammock Road. The driver, 40-year-old Jamie Curley of Sebring, was airlifted to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with incapacitating injuries. The gray Nissan Frontier pickup in the background hit the Jeep as it was trying to turn left onto Hammock Road. Police are still investigating the wreck.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comOUR VIEW Tim Smolarick Publisher firstname.lastname@example.org Romona Washington Executive Editor email@example.com VIEWPOINTS Karen Clogston Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Rob Kearly Circulation Director email@example.com I am a Socialist, probably even a Communist. From each according to their means. To each according to their needs. Are you a Communist too? Nassim Taleb, author of the ÂBlack SwanÂŽ and ÂAntifragile,ÂŽ is one of my favorite authors. He is almost too intellectual; I often can only read a few pages at a time before my brain needs a rest. Nassim convinced me. I am a Communist at least some of the time. Nassim suggests most Americans, including me, are mostly Libertarians about foreign affairs. It leads us to say things like, ÂI am not responsible for people in the Sudan or Mexico. You people need to learn individual responsibilityÂŽ. Nassim then suggests at the federal and state level, most Americans, including me, are center-right. Much of my money sent to Washington DC and Tallahassee is wasted on people who are not pulling their share of the load. We donÂt need bridges to nowhere. Nassim goes on to suggest that at the county or local level, most Americans, including me, are center-left. Yes, we want to support the environmental lands tax. Yes, we want to support extra money for our schools or nonproÂ“t hospitals. But then Nassim suggest most Americans, including me, are Socialists or even Communists at the family level. Every family has members with different needs. As a parent, you love all your children equally, but certain children need more of your time and potentially more of your money than other children. Even perhaps in your will, you struggle with how to allocate money. Do I give more of my money to the successful child who will do more good with it and make the money multiply? Do I give money to all of my children equally? Do I give more of my money to the child that needs it the most? What is the appropriate deÂ“nition of equal? My guess is, like me, you too have Socialist and perhaps even Communist leanings when it concerns your family. The gift Nassim Taleb gave me was the understanding that I, and most Americans, each carry Libertarian, Republican, Democrat and Socialist leanings within us. Each person I meet is likely not simply only a Democrat or a Republican. We are a mix of all four philosophies. Nassim helped me understand that the idea of individualism versus collectivism is actually just a spectrum. Most of us will embrace individualism or collectivism based on how close the other personÂs need is to what we consider family. If you are in the Sudan, expect parental tough love from Americans. If the need is for someone in the immediate blood family, we may talk about the need for tough love, but we will likely act as Communists or Socialists. Somewhere, in the federal to city space that lies between family and foreigners, most of us end up center-left or center-right. The national parties try to force our four-part philosophy into just one box Â… their own. But most of us Americans are four parts. We donÂt want us, or our country, to always be forced into a single box. Share your thoughts. David Dunn-Rankin is owner of DR Media, which owns the Highlands News-Sun and Highlands Sun. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .We are all Communists now David Dunn-Rankin INK IN MY VEINS While most students and teachers are enjoying their summer vacation, we are busy working with school district ofÂ“cials to make schools safer for the next school year and years to come. The work actually started at the end of the last school year when, with the help of the Pasco County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce, we unveiled the new Active Threat Plan for our schools. This new method goes far beyond the lockdown procedure that has been the norm in our schools for ages. Instead, the new strategy is the ABCs Â„ Alert/Avoid, Barricade and Counter. The lockdown procedure was actually developed way back in the 1960s when schools in Los Angeles were dealing with drive-by shootings and gang-related activity near schools. In that situation, a Âreverse Â“re drill,ÂŽ where everyone goes inside the building and seeks a safe place, makes sense. As we have come to learn, however, that procedure just doesnÂt really Â“t for the threats our schools are facing now. The Alert part of the new strategy is self-explanatory. It boils down to if you see or hear it, then report it. Where things start to change is the Avoid part of the plan. Think about it: If you are on the playground and there is a threat inside the school, does it make sense to head back into the building, toward danger? Instead, wouldnÂt it be better to evacuate to a safe place, even if that is off campus? The same is true for other areas of the campus. Instead of just locking down, the new plan allows for evacuations if the location of the threat is known and it is safe to do so. Barricade is also self-explanatory and is similar to current protocols, although we will be giving teachers more in-depth instruction on the best way to secure their classrooms in the event of an active threat on campus. Counter involves being prepared to Â“ght back if you have no other choice, using anything that may be at hand. This doesnÂt involve instructing teachers and students in hand-to-hand combat. It is more making them aware that anything they can do to disrupt the focus of someone who is an active threat may save their lives. It is important to remember that the ABCs are not a linear plan. You may not be able to Avoid or Barricade Â“rst. You may have to immediately Counter if you are in contact with the person who is posing the threat. The Active Threat Plan is also tailored to the different age groups. Something that a high-schooler may be able to do will not be appropriate to try to teach to an elementary school class. Another new aspect of school safety will be the fact that every school will have a resource ofÂ“cer on campus this year as required by the new law passed earlier this year. This will require a significant investment from both the SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce and the school board. Estimated costs are at least $840,000 to provide the additional 11 deputies Â„ and an additional supervisor Â„ that are required. Those additional deputies will provide an extra layer of security on top of the new Active Threat Plan. Teachers will be getting a more in-depth view of the new Active Threat Plan as they prepare for the new school year. Hopefully, what they learn will never have to be used in our county. Paul Blackman is the Highlands County sheriff. Email him at pblackman@highlandssheriff. org Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Work already under way to make schools safer next year Paul BlackmanFROM THE SHERIFF How many people in Highlands County can say they have been given a $35,000 pay raise after only three months of employment? We can think of one, that being June Fisher, the new city manager in Avon Park. Less than three weeks after losing her job as county administrator, Fisher was contracted in December 2017 with the city of Avon Park to do the temporary duties of administrative services director. A contract between Fisher and the city was signed in January when she was chosen from 10 applicants to serve as the cityÂs new administrative services director and city clerk. In March, former City Administrator Julian Deleon announced his plans to leave the city. The City Council decided to offer the position to Fisher because of her experience in managing the county. She accepted the position at a salary of $90,000. Three months later, three of the Â“ve members of Avon Park City Council for one reason or another decided it was OK to give Fisher a pay increase of $35,000. In making the motion, Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray bragged that the city would be saving $17,000 because the new city manager would not need the health insurance package. We wonder if she was taking the insurance package at $90,000. We also wonder if all city employees were offered a $35,000 pay raise, if they waived the $17,000 insurance package, would they accept it too? Furthermore, are all city employeesÂ insurance packages worth $17,000? In a unique twist, the new city manager, who has only been in the position for three months, is now earning the same pay that the previous city manager earned after working six years and six months in the same role. How many citizens of Avon Park are questioning why Gray, Councilman Terry Heston and Councilwoman Dora Smith made this questionable Â“duciary decision after only three monthsÂ service? We canÂt imagine the citizens of Avon Park are anywhere near happy with their tax dollars being spent in this manner. We could be wrong. History shows that Bruce Behrens, the city manager with the shortest term of Â“ve months, never received a pay increase. Clearly, the council at that time had more Â“duciary responsibility. The closest increase-in-pay scenario in the Avon Park city manager position that we can Â“nd came when Sarah Adelt completed 1 year and 7 months of service. Her salary jumped $22,750 during her less-than two years of service. Her ending salary was $69,775. The city manager with the longest tenure of the past four city managers for Avon Park was C.B. Shirey. It took 10 years for his salary to increase from $45,000 to the Â“nal salary of $77,300. What we Â“nd strange is that the three council members who voted yes on FisherÂs pay increase may not have considered concerns made by the other two council members Â… Mayor Garrett Anderson and Councilman Jim Barnard. Mayor Anderson pointed out that the previous city manager had a long history with the city during which his pay increased from $90,000 to $125,000. Councilman Heston spoke up saying the cityÂs annual budget at $20 million could handle it and could also handle future raises for the city manager should the cityÂs budget continue to grow. Councilman Barnard made an excellent point. The previous city manager also served as the cityÂs engineer. Paying him a higher salary was understandable. Fisher is not serving in that additional role, so what is the $35,000 raise for? Typically, three months isnÂt enough time for a sitting council to see what kind of work a new city manager has done, or even how she will work that $20 million budget to better the city. We feel an obligation to also remind tax-paying citizens of Avon Park that the council not only hired someone that was terminated from a similar position in the county, they have now also decided to give that person a 39 percent increase after only three months. Granted, Florida is a no-fault state, so we may never know why Ms. Fisher was terminated Âƒ even with good evaluations. Certainly Fisher is not the victim here and she should be smiling all the way to the bank. Three council members decided this was the best way to spend your money, Avon Park. Let us know what you think. We feel as a government entity, any growth in a cityÂs budget should not be dedicated to one position. It should be dedicated to the city itself. We urge the citizens of Avon Park to carefully consider this type of action when looking at all candidates before you go to the polls in November and beyond.35,000 reasons to smile

Brochetti Funeral Home, Lake Placid. 863-465-9997.Alice W. WrightAlice Waters Wright, 82, died June 7, 2018 in Sebring, Florida. She was born in Westerville, Ohio to the late Gerald and Gertrude Billings Waters on Aug. 18, 1935. She was preceded in death by her husband, John, who died in 2015, and brother, Dennis Waters. Survivors include her three sons, Jonathan of Sebring, Florida and Grafton, Ohio, Robert (Marjorie) of Westerville, Ohio, and Timothy of Columbus, Ohio; and grandchildren, Shannon and Dylan of Westerville, Ohio. John and Alice, with son Jonathan, have been snowbirds since 1995. Alice was an avid reader and gardener, using the home farm acreage in Grafton, which yielded an abundance of fruits and vegetables that she canned. Both John and Alice were active in churches, wherever they were, and always sang in the choirs. A graduate of BaldwinWallace College, she taught school many years, both full-time and as a substitute while raising their children. She was an active member of Association of American University Women (AAUW) at the local level, as well as the district and later state levels. She was former president of Sebring Property Owners Association, active in the Ohio Federation of WomenÂs Club, as well as Cub Scout den mother many years. Alice was besieged with multiple health problems in later years, but continued to be active in the community with her varied interests of quilting, canning, gardening and music. A memorial service will be held at a later date and will be open to all her many friends. Arrangements are under the direction of Dowden Funeral Home, 2605 Bayview Street, Sebring, FL 33870. 863-385-1546.OBITSFROM PAGE 5 and it would cut out corruption. ÂThe ÂswampÂ and the problems you have up there would be much more addressed by term limits,ÂŽ Steube said. Another option, he said, would be to cut membersÂ pay after so many years to that of an average worker. The problem is compounded, he said, when incumbent Congress members can roll any unused campaign funds into the next bid for re-election. Mailing costs can run up to $22,000 for one mail piece, which people might simply throw away, he said. Television advertising is even more expensive. That makes wealthy incumbents almost impossible to Â“ght. ÂOne of the things that bugs me when I go there,ÂŽ Kirouac said, Âthat itÂs beyond me, is when we talk about how food gets to your table, itÂs a partisan issue,ÂŽ Kirouac said. Steube said party differences have also caused problems, even at the state level. The Florida Legislature, normally a very Âcollegial body,ÂŽ Steube said, has in the last couple of years become very partisan. ÂItÂs unfortunate, but thatÂs the nature of politics,ÂŽ he said. Steube has pledged to put funding toward agriculture, as he said he voted to do at the state level, he said. He said there is still a disconnect between some politicians and agriculture, especially in Washington D.C. Many donÂt realize that Florida is the 10th largest cow/ calf producing state, he said. Kirouac said it also surprises him that some congressional members want to import more food when food produced domestically is the safest, most abundant source, both from a health and a national security standpoint. Labor was another issue: Susie Bishop, executive director of the Soil and Water Conservation District, said sheÂs managed an H-2A Temporary Agricultural Worker program, and found it expensive. Her family is in the dairy industry, which doesnÂt need seasonal workers, but seasoned ones with enough experience to run the operation. ÂWe canÂt Â“nd anyone,ÂŽ Bishop said. Others said they canÂt afford to hire as many as two extra employees to handle the paperwork. Steube said he plans to work toward upgrading the guest worker program. He has met home builders who canÂt get enough drafters or other skilled workers. Frank Youngman asked about water management, and Steube said thatÂs best left to the state governments. A recent initiative to clean up water in Lake Okeechobee hasnÂt moved forward, he said, because itÂs tied up in federal court. ÂThe federal government should not be involved in that,ÂŽ Steube said. His biography at electgregsteube.com states the Â“fth-generation FloridianÂs family Â“rst settled in Sarasota. He was born in Bradenton, earned his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Florida with a major in beef cattle sciences and minor in agricultural law, then enlisted in the U.S. Army after the 9/11 attacks. He spent one year as a commissioned airborne infantry ofÂ“cer, then after a knee injury, spent three years in the U.S. Army JAG Corps, serving as a captain with the 25th Infantry Division in Operation Iraqi Freedom. His platform centers around protection of 2nd Amendment rights, tighter controls on immigration Â„ including building of the wall Â„ abolition of abortion and better care for veterans.

All Â“shing factors considered, anglers will enjoy Â“shing in the morning hours before the heat becomes unbearable in the mild summer wind of FloridaÂs midday sun. The full moon occurs on Thursday, however since the lunar orbit apogee occurs Saturday the Âlunar effect levelÂ will be very weak at best. And since there happens to be signiÂ“cant nighttime cloud-cover forecast for Wednesday through Saturday, the Âdaytime full-moon Â“shingÂ should be better than average Â„ Âthe average deÂ“ned by a bright shining nighttime full moon and subsequent heavy night-feeding action.Â There is nothing signiÂ“cant about this weekÂs weather forecast. The standard midday-through-evening storm development, lack of wind, high heat and humidity, and 90-plus degree heat by solar noon, (occurring today at 1:28 p.m.), will replay daily. Again, the only real negative is the lack of wind speed and the positive factor is, wind will come from the same easterly direction through the beginning of July. Water temperature is now at the threshold of being too hot.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com hitting my marks and trying not to overdrive the car right at the end. When Selin [Rollan] and Nikko [Reger] started to battle, I was able to get a little bit of a gap and I just tried to put the hammer down and give it everything I had. Having a left rear tire that was in good shape at the end gives you a good run through the Carousel because you can get in there a little bit hotter without the car going sideways. When I was out there, I knew I had a good enough gap that I could win without having to run defensive if I just hit my marks.ÂŽ Dean captured the pole for bothof this weekendÂs races and he said having the pole doesnÂt necessarily mean good things will happen at Road America. ÂQualifying is a little bit of luck but weÂve been coming here for years now, since our Â“rst season in 2012, and in that time IÂve been on quite a few poles,ÂŽ Dean said. ÂBut thereÂs so much strategy out there, and itÂs strategy on the Â”y. You canÂt plan it Â… you have to react and you have to make decisions. The car was working well. I had a really good car off the corner, which gives you the ability to pull a good draft. But the biggest thing was working track position and getting in the right position to get a lap, because if you are battling with someone, you can forget about it. ÂStarting on pole in an MX-5 Cup race at Road America means you are probably going to be passed Â… probably at the start! So you just try to not fall too far back. You can be put out of line and fall back Â“ve or six cars, easily. So the goal is to try and protect the position. If you get passed, you have to then try and get back in line and pass back. Otherwise, you will just keep losing spots. ItÂs still a pretty long race for a sprint race and anybody in the top 10 can win. ItÂs that kind of race.ÂŽ Current championship leader Reger Â“nished second in the No. 01 Slipstream Performance entry and spent most of his race locked in a Â“ght with Rollan. He wasnÂt able to shake Rollan until the Â“nal lap, but by then Dean had already checked out from the pack. Rollan, who won at the Circuit of the Americas in challenging conditions, had a great start from Â“fth on the grid, which eventually set him up to claim the Â“nal podium spot in the No. 87 Sick Sideways car. Rollan was also the highest Â“nishing rookie in the Â“eld, getting him one step closer to that $75,000 end of the year prize for Rookie of the Year. Finishing fourth in the No. 20 Slipstream Performance car, Hernan Palermo was in the mix for a podium Â“nish as well and ended up the highest-Â“nishing Master Class driver. ÂI wanted to Â“nish on the podium Â„ that was the goal,ÂŽ Palermo said. ÂIt didnÂt happen, but it was still a great race. It was stressful as always, but thatÂs what makes it entertaining. The reality is everyone is aware of their surroundings 99 percent of the time and incidents happen sometimes, but itÂs a lot of friendly racing. The big takeaway for me from todayÂs race is that itÂs probably wise to make moves early in the race, compared to waiting to make a move.ÂŽ The Battery Tender Hard Charger, Todd Lamb, was knocking on the door of a podium Â“nish all race long in his No. 84 Atlanta Speedwerks MX-5, but eventually settled for a Â“fth; an impressive feat after starting 11th on the grid. The six positions gained during the race earned Lamb and his crew chief $1,000 and a Battery Tender charger, each. ÂIt was just like being in a trafÂ“c jam the whole race and coming from 11th, it was pretty hairy there the Â“rst couple of laps to get by some of the guys who also wanted to get to the front,ÂŽ Lamb said. ÂAt that point, it was a lot of strategy Â… trying to play offense and defense at the same time to keep moving up. I capitalized on a few mistakes by other drivers, and that was the key, I think. We deÂ“nitely made the car better from qualifying. I think thatÂs what helped us move up. IÂm really proud of the Atlanta Speedwerks crew, and thanks to Mazda and Battery Tender. Alex Wolenski, driver of the No. 56 McCumbee McAleer Racing MX-5 earned his Â“rst Challenger Cup presented by Monticello Motor Club victory of the season after improving Â“ve positions from his grid spot to claim 17thoverall. ÂThe Challenger Cup presented by Monticello Motor Club is awesome,ÂŽ Wolenski said. ÂItÂs a great way for a gentleman driver like me to make his debut in professional racing. IÂm honored to be on track with all this talent and IÂm having so much fun.ÂŽ With a pole position leading to a big victory, it was nearly a perfect day for John Dean, who had only one regret after taking the checkered Â”ag. ÂThe embarrassing thing was I forgot to go to the podium and everyone followed me into the paddock!ÂŽ See MondayÂs Highlands News-Sun for full results of the second race from Road America.DEANFROM PAGE 1 MAZDA MOTORSPORTS PHOTOSebringÂs John Dean has a laugh at Barber Motorsports ParkDarrin A.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com With this tournament being his fourth visit to the legendary Upper Mississippi River, Aaron Martens of Leeds, Alabama, is now eyeballing the $100,000 payday as he took the lead at the 2018 Bassmaster Elite at Mississippi River presented by Go RVing. The water is rising at La Crosse, but itÂs not stopped the big largemouth and smallmouth bass from eating with regularity. River levels are expected to remain within the forecast range: 12 feet high by today, and cresting sometime Monday. Twelve feet is considered Â”ood stage, which will certainly impact the Â“shing from day to day. Regardless of challenging river conditions, Martens posted a Â“ne Â“ve-bass limit that weighed 17 pounds, 14 ounces to push him to the top of the ofÂ“cial leaderboard with a twoday total of 34-3. The three-time Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Â“nished in Â“fth place in 2012 when the Elite Series visited La Crosse, second in 2013 and 30th in 2016. To say he wants to win here is an understatement. ÂI know the winning limit of Â“sh is swimming where IÂm Â“shing,ÂŽ he said. ÂI want to prove it this time. But a number of factors are going to have to go my way for that to happen.ÂŽ Over the years, heÂs spent a lot of time across this vast Â“shery, and he said itÂs an amazing place to come and catch a lot of bass. But his location continues to produce quality Â“sh year after year. ÂI keep coming back to the same location when we compete here. IÂve done well Â“shing in that area every single time, and I see no reason to change my approach,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt might bite me this time, but right now IÂm conÂ“dent the Â“sh I need to win are there to be caught.ÂŽ Martens is sharing water with California angler Chris Zaldain. Zaldain put together an impressive limit that weighed 17-11 pushing his two-day total to 32-7, which was good enough for the fourth-place spot on the leaderboard. ÂChris and I are both Â“shing for the same Â“sh, but weÂre being respectful of each other, and thatÂs important,ÂŽ Martens said. ÂWe both want to win, and Â“shing so closely together will make things interesting for sure.ÂŽ The impending Â”oodwaters do not seem to be affecting Martens or Zaldain, but for Randall Tharp of Port St. Joe, Fla., that might be a different story. Tharp caught 17-12 the second round for a twoday total of 34-2, and will be starting the semiÂ“nals on Saturday in second place. ÂDuring practice, aand even today, I thought the rising water would hurt my pattern,ÂŽ Tharp said. ÂBut surprisingly, the Â“shing was better today. I caught what I weighed in early enough to sit down and eat lunch, a luxury that I donÂt often take advantage of during a tournament. I hope my luck continues tomorrow.ÂŽ Rounding out the Top 5 are Gerald Spohrer with 32-13, Zaldain with 32-7 and Jacob Powroznik with 32-6. The Bassmaster Elite Series Outdoors Expo will be held in conjunction with the tournament. It will take place at Valley View Mall today beginning at noon. The event will feature boat demo rides, an aquarium, free prizes and the latest Â“shing products on the market. The Rock-NRibs Festival will also be happening at Valley View Mall along with concerts, food and the bbq competition. All activities are free and open to the public.

Eastern RegionalFloridaÂs Turner finishes as runner-upGEORGETOWN, S.C. Â„ After winning a team title Thursday as a member of Team Delaware, Mark Hogan made it a clean sweep for ÂThe First StateÂŽ when individual championships were decided Friday in the Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Eastern Regional presented by Magellan Outdoors. Hogan caught a Â“ve-bass limit on Friday that totaled 15 pounds, 9 ounces. That limit, his third in the three-day tournament, gave him a 31-15 total and a victory in the boater division of the Â“nal B.A.S.S. Nation regional of the year. Hogan earned $6,000 for the win. He bested 172 other boaters from 17 states in the eastern U.S. and the Canadian province of Ontario for the individual title. He also won a spot in the 2018 Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Nation Championship presented by Magellan Outdoors. That tournament will be held later this year on a date and Â“shery to be announced. It was a lot for the 50-year-old Milford resident to absorb. ÂIÂm really emotional right now,ÂŽ Hogan said. ÂIÂm doing what I can to hold it back.ÂŽ He did everything but hold it back, however, on the Winyah Bay system in this weekÂs regional. Scorching temperatures near 100 degrees and inexperience with Â“shing tidal systems hampered the bite for much of the Â“eld, but Hogan consistently improved as the tournament advanced. Hogan caught a 7-5 limit on Day 1, which was nearly 7 pounds behind FloridaÂs Dave Turner, who led the Â“rst two days of the tournament. Hogan chipped into TurnerÂs lead with a 9-1 limit on Thursday, and he blew past him on Friday with the tournamentÂs big bag. HoganÂs limit was anchored by a 5-4 lunker that was only 1 ounce shy of the Big Bass of the week. The key to his upswing, Hogan said, was switching to a Senko worm on Friday. He also got out of creek mouths and hunkered down in the back of a pond off the Waccamaw River. ÂIt was a Gary Yamamoto black and blue laminate worm I went to,ÂŽ he said. ÂI was in about 2 or 3 feet of water. Where I was at, there wasnÂt much tide going on. Actually it was high water. Knowing tidal situations like I do living in Delaware, something told me to just try that Senko. IÂm glad I did.ÂŽ Hogan has represented Delaware in numerous regionals through the years, but this will be his Â“rst trip to the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. He said after Delaware Â“nished second in the team standings at last yearÂs Eastern Regional on the Upper Chesapeake Bay, winning both team and individual honors this year is very special. ÂI joined the Tidewater Bass Club back in 1999,ÂŽ Hogan said. ÂAll those guys are really good sticks. If it wasnÂt for them being really competitive, I probably wouldnÂt be here. You have to get better to Â“sh with them.ÂŽ Turner Â“nished second among boaters with a 30-3 total over three days. Norman Mullinax of North Carolina was third with 29-2. Georgetown resident Gary Pope led the nonboater Â“eld from start to Â“nish. He caught threebass limits each day and had nine bass that totaled 17-6. That earned him a $3,000 top prize and a spot in the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. This will mark his second trip to nationals. Pope also threw Senko worms throughout the tournament, except his choice was a green/ white combo he pitched to structure. He threw a blue crawÂ“sh lure he custom makes, as well. Unlike Hogan, Pope started the tournament fast and had to hang onto his lead. His best bag came on Wednesday when caught three bass that weighed 10-4. His catch slipped to 3-9 on both Days 2 and 3, but it was enough to win. ÂKnowing the right time, the right place and the right things helped me make some decent situations,ÂŽ Pope said. ÂItÂs great to win here at home. I work right here at the paper mill. Everyone has been really supportive. ItÂs been a great experience.ÂŽ Stacey Proctor Jefferson of nearby Conway Â“nished second with 15-13. Jimmy Myers of Delaware was third in the nonboater division with a 15-12 total. An additional 173 nonboaters competed in the regional. The leading boater and nonboater from each of the 18 competing teams earned a berth in the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. The Big Bass Award of $500 went to PennsylvaniaÂs Brad Bressler, who caught a 5-5 bass on Thursday. VirginiaÂs Travis Lugar earned $250 for the 5-1 bass he boated in the nonboater division.Special to Highlands News-Sun PLEASE GIVE BLOOD HELP SAVE LIVES adno=3588390 adno=3586722

The deeper lakes also offer more of the ability to discernible Â“sh-feeding patterns; in that Â“sh are able to move deeper to Â“nd a comfort zone and therefore operate normally day to day. Once you locate summertime Â“sh-population depths, youÂll be Âon Â“shÂ for the summer season. Best Fishing Days: Wednesday through Friday the full moon will either create good Â“shing nights if there is no clouds, and very good Â“shing days if there is nighttime clouds. The Major Fishing Periods: Today the moon is underfoot at 10:43 a.m. and solar noon at 1:28 p.m. Therefore two major periods will occur during the 10-2 hours. A feed intensity rating of 4-5 today for both periods until Wednesday when both periods increases to a 6-rating However the better period will be determined by nighttime cloud cover density. I expect this feeding period to remain at this time all week. The Minor Fishing Period: Today the moonrise occurs at 5:27 p.m. and the sunset at 8:24 p.m. and the high dissolved oxygen period of the day also occurs during this period. So therefore until Wednesday, a feed rating will climb to 4-5 range from 5-9 p.m. The moonset today occurs at 4:02 a.m. and will not become a factor until Wednesday and Thursday when the moonset and sunrise occur within the same hour. So the second half of this week, an early morning bite will occur but I believe will be weak due to low oxygen levels at this time of day. Prime Monthly Periods: July 10-16, super new moon; July 24-29, weak full moon.

Seasonal Safety Notes: Alligators are now in their Âmating seasonÂ which occurs from April through August. Males are very aggressive and any shallow body of water will have dangerous gators so be alert. Expect gators to be in your pools and other areas near small waterways. Gators will be Âwhere they usually are notÂ so scan areas for gator activity. Istokpoga.info News: The lake level is at 38.31 feet above sea level, which is slightly above the max-level (38.25 feet) in the 9-inch management-threshold range for June. The minimum level is 37.50 feet currently, and will remain at this annual low mark until July when it is raised six inches over a six-week period. This seasonal Ârain-buffer scheduleÂ is necessary because the lake Â“lls six times faster than water is able to be released during major rain events.

The News Wire Sunday, June 24, 2018 STATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHER Sanders says she was asked to leave Virginia restaurantSee page 4. MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) Â„ Peter Unger traveled the world, Â“rst in the Navy at the tail end of the Korean War and then as a free spirit searching the ancient paths of India for lifeÂs sacred meaning. Toward the end of his life Unger, sporting a Â”owing white beard and well-off Â“nancially thanks to his handcrafted jewelry business, sought sanctuary in the idea of living simply. But in a twist of fate, the 85-year-old who shunned worldly cares was found dead May 7, alone in a nondescript white Ford van that sat parked undisturbed for days at a Walmart, a retail giant seen by many as AmericaÂs temple of commerce and materialism. Unger was among the growing number of people around the country who drew their last breaths in Walmart parking lots. It is not that the parking lots are unsafe. In fact, it is the relative safety of the well-lit and busy lots Â„ combined with a welcoming corporate policy Â„ that has drawn more people like Unger to call the Walmart parking lots home, if only temporarily. And where people live, they also die. They include those who are homeless, truckers, immigrants, drug-addled, suicidal or ill Â„ all whose bodies are found nationwide in cars, vans and other vehicles in the parking lots of the retail giant. It is the last stop, one that can go unnoticed amid the daily crush of shoppers searching for deals, sometimes focused on the rattle of carts instead of their crowded surroundings. In Brevard, police have investigated nearly half a dozen such parking lot deaths since 2015, from the badly decomposed remains of a man found inside a Â”y-swarmed sedan at a beachside Walmart in the simmering July heat to that of a man who suffered from cancer, found the same year in a sport utility vehicle that sat in a far corner of the Walmart lot in Viera. In both cases, it was the pungent smell that Â“rst caught the attention of passers-by or workers. ÂItÂs unfortunate but these (things) do happen. ItÂs not uncommon,ÂŽ said Lt. Cheryl Trainer, spokeswoman for the Melbourne Police Department, an agency that has investigated the bulk of the Walmart parking lot deaths on the Space Coast. LAS VEGAS Â„ President Donald Trump pressed his tough immigration stance at a Nevada political convention Saturday, telling hundreds Âwe have to be very strongÂŽ to keep people, including violent gang members, from entering the country illegally. Trump was in Las Vegas to boost the candidacy of Dean Heller, the only Republican U.S. senator seeking re-election in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Trump and Heller have papered over their once prickly relationship to present a united front in their shared goal of helping Republicans maintain, if not expand, their thin 51-49 majority in the Senate. Heller was among the ofÂ“cials waiting on the sweltering airport tarmac to greet Trump. In remarks to several hundred people attending the Nevada GOP Convention, Trump portrayed himself as tough against illegal immigration, saying at one point, ÂI think I got elected largely because we are strong on the border.ÂŽ But he excluded any mention of the fact that, following a massive public outcry, including from members of his own family, he reversed course earlier this week and ended the practice of separating families illegally crossing the southern border into the U.S. Trump sharply criticized HellerÂs Democratic opponent, Rep. Jacky Rosen, and tagged her with one of the derisive nicknames heÂs fond of giving his opponents: ÂWacky Jacky.ÂŽ ÂWacky Jacky is campaigning with Pocahontas. Do you believe this?ÂŽ Dead bodies found at Walmart stores in Brevard is phenomenonTrump pushes tough immigration stance in Nevada appearanceBy J.D. GALLOPFLORIDA TODAYBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ The Justice Department says it has given House Republicans new classiÂ“ed information related to the Russia investigation after lawmakers had threatened to hold ofÂ“cials in contempt of Congress or even impeach them. A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday that the department has partially complied with subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after ofÂ“cials turned over more than a thousand new documents this week. House Republicans had given the Justice Department and FBI a Friday deadline for all documents, most of which are related to the origins of the FBIÂs Russia investigation and the handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary ClintonÂs emails. Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said the department asked for more time and they will get it Â„ for now. ÂOur efforts have resulted in the committees Â“nally getting access to information that was sought months ago, but some important requests remain to be completed,ÂŽ Strong said in a statement Saturday. ÂAdditional time has been requested for the outstanding items, and based on our understanding of the process we believe that request is reasonable. We expect the department to meet its full obligations to the two committees.ÂŽ The efforts by the Justice Department over the last week to deliver documents DOJ gives Congress new classified documents on Russia probeBy MARY CLARE JALONICKASSOCIATED PRESSHARARE, Zimbabwe Â„ ZimbabweÂs president was unscathed Saturday by an explosion at a campaign rally that state media called an attempt to assassinate him, later visiting his two injured vice presidents and declaring the Âcowardly actÂŽ will not disrupt next monthÂs historic elections. Dramatic footage showed a smiling President Emmerson Mnangagwa walking off the stage and into a crowded tent where the blast occurred seconds later, sending up smoke as people screamed and ran for cover. OfÂ“cials said Mnangagwa was whisked from the stadium rally to a nearby government building in Bulawayo, a traditional opposition stronghold. The explosion went off a Âfew inches away from me, but it is not my time,ÂŽ the president told state broadcaster ZBC. Mnangagwa, who has joked openly ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia Â„ A thwarted attempt to hurl a grenade at EthiopiaÂs reformist new prime minister led to a deadly explosion Saturday at a massive rally in support of sweeping changes in AfricaÂs second most populous country. Nine police ofÂ“cials were arrested, state media reported. Witnesses said a man tried to throw the grenade at the stage as Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed waved to the cheering crowd of tens of thousands shortly after he made a strong appeal for unity following months of anti-government protests. Addressing the nation minutes after he was rushed to safety, Abiy called the blast a Âwellorchestrated attackÂŽ but one that failed. He did not lay blame and said police were investigating.

Â„ Several afÂ“liates of Planned Parenthood sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Friday over its efforts to impose an abstinence-only focus on its Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program that has served more than 1 million young people. The lawsuits were Â“led in federal courts in New York City and Spokane, Washington, by four different Planned Parenthood afÂ“liates covering New York City and the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska and Washington. Planned Parenthood says the lawsuits are intended to protect the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program from what they termed ineffective abstinenceonly-until-marriage curriculums. ÂYoung people have the right to the information and skills they need to protect their health,ÂŽ Dawn Laguens said in a press release, vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. ÂThe TrumpPence administration is trying to impose their abstinence-only agenda on young people across the country.ÂŽ Evidence shows such programs do not work, Laguens said. An email sent to the Health and Human Services public relations ofÂ“ce was not immediately answered on Friday. In previous court documents, the agency has said it has the right to change its funding priorities. The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program has served about 1.2 million teens in 39 states since it started in 2010. The Trump administration in April announced it would remake the program to push abstinence-only counseling. Last year, the agency informed recipients of 81 teen pregnancy prevention grants that it would terminate their grant agreements two years early, meaning this year. That decision was made after President Trump appointed Valerie Huber as chief of staff for the OfÂ“ce of Assistant Secretary of Health. After her appointment, Huber wrote an article decrying the lack of federal funding for abstinence education and questioned the effectiveness of teen pregnancy prevention grants. In April, a federal judge in Spokane blocked the Trump administration from cutting the grants. Judges in Seattle, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., have made similar rulings. Supporters of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program credit it with helping to lower the teen pregnancy rate 41 percent since 2010. But the agency has issued past statements calling the program ineffective. Congress created the $110 million program in 2010 to support and develop evidence-based ways to reduce teen pregnancy. In 2015, HHS awarded the 81 grants that were to last Â“ve years. The lawsuits were Â“led by Planned Parenthood of New York City; Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands; Planned Parenthood of the Heartland; and Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho. They contend that abstinence-only programs can contain false and misleading information and stigmatize teens who have sex. ÂMost people have had sex by the time theyÂre 18,ÂŽ Planned Parenthood said in a press release. In addition to the agency, the lawsuits name as defendants HHS Secretary Alex Azar and Huber.Lawsuits challenge efforts to push abstinence-only on teensBy NICHOLAS K. GERANIOSASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOVeteran given $15K in lawn equipment after theft Houston heart transplant hospital could lose Medicaid fundsArkansas to evaluate river sinkhole where kayaker diedTULSA, Okla. (AP) Â„ A veteran in Oklahoma whose life and business were disrupted when his lawn equipment was stolen no longer needs to face acres of grass using a push mower. The Tulsa World reports Cody Nichols on Friday received $15,000 worth of new lawn-mowing equipment through the nonproÂ“t group SoldierÂs Wish. The Tulsa-based organization works to meet the needs of military veterans. Nichols, who served in the Marines, operates Our Troops Services. The small business hires veterans for landscaping, fencing and construction jobs. The theft occurred early May 20. Nichols arrived to discover all of the equipment was gone. He tried to get by with a couple of donated push mowers, but fell behind. Nichols now has a commercial riding mower thanks to FridayÂs presentation at Bloss Equipment. HOUSTON (AP) Â„ A Houston hospital that suspended its renowned heart transplant program for two weeks amid scrutiny following the deaths of two patients could lose federal Medicaid funding. Baylor St. LukeÂs Medical Center was notiÂ“ed Friday that Medicare plans to halt funding to its heart transplant program on Aug. 17, the Houston Chronicle reports Federal ofÂ“cials, raising concerns about two deaths in May, said the LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Â„ Arkansas has hired a consultant to evaluate a stretch of river where a kayaker was dragged to his death when a rare sinkhole created a whirlpool. Commissioner of State Lands John Thurston says experts will begin evaluating the Spring River on Monday. The sinkhole area is closed to the public. OfÂ“cials say 64-yearold Donald Wright of Searcy died in the June 9 accident near Saddler Falls. A statement from ThurstonÂs ofÂ“ce says the matter is of utmost importance, especially with the anticipated increase of trafÂ“c with the upcoming July Fourth holiday. OfÂ“cials say sinkholes are common in the northern half of Arkansas, where subterranean limestone easily erodes. ItÂs unusual to have a sinkhole open a whirlpool in the middle of a stream. | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONhospital has not done enough to Â“x shortcomings that endanger patients. St. LukeÂs temporary suspension of its heart transplant program came after joint reports by the Chronicle and ProPublica. The hospital reopened the program on June 15 after Â“nding no Âsystemic issues related to the quality of the program.ÂŽ It said it was reorganizing its transplant surgery team, reÂ“ning the criteria for which patients it would accept for heart transplants and making other improvements to strengthen the program. The funding withdrawal by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would threaten the hospitalÂs viability, experts contend, depriving it of an essential source of funding. The termination could trigger private insurance companies to follow suit. St. LukeÂs, in a statement, said it looks forward to discussing CMSÂ concerns with agency ofÂ“cials. The hospital said it believes it is eligible to take further corrective steps, including a systems improvement agreement, Âwhich would provide a long-term path forward for our program.ÂŽ ÂOur unwavering focus is always to ensure our patients receive the best possible medical care, and in ways that reÂ”ect our core values of reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence,ÂŽ the hospital said. Systems improvement agreements, when they occur, are usually Â“rst offered by CMS, not requested by a hospital. No such agreement was offered in the CMS letter. St. LukeÂs can appeal the termination, but that wonÂt freeze the process, according to Medicare rules.AP FILE PHOTOThis June 10, photo provided by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission shows a whirlpool along the Spring River in northeastern Arkansas.

ÂThe prime minister was the target,ÂŽ a rally organizer, Seyoum Teshome, told The Associated Press. ÂAn individual tried to hurl the grenade toward a stage where the prime minister was sitting but was held back by the crowd.ÂŽ The man with the grenade was wearing a police uniform, witness Abraham Tilahun told the AP. Police ofÂ“cers nearby quickly restrained him, he said. ÂThen we heard the explosion.ÂŽ Nine police ofÂ“cials were arrested, including the deputy head of the capitalÂs police commission, state broadcaster ETV reported. AP video from the scene showed bloodstained ground and abandoned shoes while people chanting the prime ministerÂs name Â”ed, some clutching their heads in shock and despair. The attack was Âcheap and unacceptable,ÂŽ the prime minister said, and added: ÂLove always wins. Killing others is a defeat. To those who tried to divide us, I want to tell you that you have not succeeded.ÂŽ The ruling party in a statement blamed Âdesperate anti-peace elementsÂŽ and vowed to continue with the countryÂs reforms. The explosion in packed Meskel Square in Addis Ababa followed weeks of dramatic changes that shocked many in the East African nation after years of anti-government tensions, states of emergency, thousands of arrests and long internet shutdowns. The 42-year-old Abiy took ofÂ“ce in April and quickly announced the release of tens of thousands of prisoners, the opening of state-owned companies to private investment and the unconditional embrace of a peace deal with rival Eritrea. Websites were unblocked and opposition Â“gures were invited to dinner. Ethiopians said they could hardly keep up with the pace of change. SaturdayÂs rally began as a show of exuberance, with supporters wearing clothes displaying AbiyÂs image and carrying signs saying ÂOne Love, One Ethiopia.ÂŽ Informal in a neon green T-shirt, Abiy told the tens of thousands of supporters that change was coming and there was no turning back. After the explosion the state broadcaster quickly cut away from coverage of the rally, which broke up with people singing, chanting and going back to their homes. ÂIÂve never thought this day will come in Ethiopia. IÂm very emotional right now,ÂŽ said supporter Mulugeta Sema, who wore a T-shirt with the new leaderÂs image and spoke before the blast. ÂWe should never get back to dictatorship. This is time for change.ÂŽ In a sign of the new effort at dialogue between bitter rivals after a deadly border war and years of skirmishes, one Eritrean diplomat, ambassador to Japan Estifanos Afeworki, said on Twitter that his country Âstrongly condemns the attempt to incite violenceÂŽ in SaturdayÂs attack. The United States has been among those in the international community expressing support for the dramatic changes in Ethiopia, a key security ally in a turbulent region with neighbors including Somalia and South Sudan. Not everyone has cheered the changes. Some Ethiopians in the north near the border with Eritrea, one of the worldÂs most reclusive nations, have protested the embrace of the peace deal. And the Tigrayan PeopleÂs Liberation Front, a party in EthiopiaÂs ruling coalition that has been the dominant force in government for most of the past 27 years, said the announcement on the peace deal had been made before the ruling coalitionÂs congress met to discuss it: ÂWe see this as a Â”aw.ÂŽ Abiy is the Â“rst prime minister from the Oromo ethnic group, the largest in the country, since the ruling party came to power in 1991. EthiopiaÂs sometimes deadly protests demanding more freedoms began in the Oromia and Amhara regions in late 2015 and spread elsewhere, Â“nally leading to the resignation of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn early this year.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1about multiple attempts on his life in the past, said he was used to them by now. At least eight people were injured, the staterun Herald newspaper reported. Vice President Kembo Mohadi had leg injuries, while Constantino Chiwenga, a second vice president and the former military commander, had bruises on his face, the report said. Most of the injured were discharged from a hospital after treatment, presidential spokesman George Charamba told the newspaper. The blast and the lack of clarity about who was behind it injected new uncertainty into preparations for the July 30 elections, the Â“rst since longtime leader Robert Mugabe stepped down in November after a military takeover. Mnangagwa, who had been Â“red as MugabeÂs deputy in a ruling party feud shortly before the power transition, took over with pledges to deliver free and fair elections. Mnangagwa said on Twitter that he was awaiting further information about the blast but added, without elaborating, that those responsible must have come from Âoutside Bulawayo.ÂŽ He added: ÂI can assure you these are my normal enemies.ÂŽ He had Â”ed Zimbabwe shortly after his Â“ring in November by Mugabe, who along with his wife, Grace, had sharply criticized the man who had been his closest conÂ“dant for many years. ZimbabweÂs main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, said on Twitter: ÂOur prayers go out to the injured and we hope no lives have been lost. Violence must have no place in our politics. Â The United States and Britain were among countries that condemned the explosion. ZimbabweÂs election next month will be the Â“rst without Mugabe since independence from white minority rule in 1980. Mnangagwa, a former justice and defense minister who served for decades as MugabeÂs enforcer, has invited Western election observers for the Â“rst time in almost two decades. Past votes have been marked by violence and fraud, and the United States and others have said a credible vote is key to lifting international sanctions.ZIMBABWEFROM PAGE 1 BRUSSELS Â„ With another migrant rescue ship stranded in the Mediterranean and both Italy and Malta again refusing to let it dock, European Union leaders will try to Â“nd common ground for tackling a growing political crisis that is threatening to undermine the entire EU. The leaders of about 16 countries Â„ more than half the 28-nation bloc Â„ will take part in what is being billed as Âinformal talksÂŽ in Brussels on Sunday ahead of a full EU summit next Thursday and Friday, where migration will top the agenda. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the meeting involves Âtalking with particularly affected nations about all problems connected with migration.ÂŽ She said the hope is to see if Âwe can reach bi-, trior even multinational agreements to better solve certain problems.ÂŽ The arrival of more than one million people in 2015, most Â”eeing wars in Syria and Iraq, exposed glaring deÂ“ciencies in EU migrant reception capacities and asylum laws. It has fueled tensions among EU nations and anti-migrant parties have won votes in Europe by fomenting public fears of foreigners. ÂThese rescue ships can forget about reaching Italy,ÂŽ ItalyÂs new Â“rebrand interior minister, Matteo Salvini, said Saturday as he assured his anti-migrant base that he would ÂcrushÂŽ the human trafÂ“cking business. At the heart of the problem lie deep divisions over who should take responsibility for arriving migrants Â„ often Mediterranean countries like Italy, Greece and increasingly Spain Â„ how long they should be required to accommodate them, and what should be done to help those EU countries hardest hit. The problem was crystalized last week in a row between ItalyÂs new populist government, Malta and France over who should take responsibility for 630 people rescued from the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Libya, the main departure point for people trying to reach Europe. Amid the mud-slinging, SpainÂs new Socialist government agreed to take charge of the migrants and the ship eventually made a weeklong voyage to Valencia. On Saturday, Spain also announced it had rescued 569 more migrants at sea, many from boats in the Strait of Gibraltar, a busy shipping lane with treacherous currents. But another rescue ship, the Lifeline of the German NGO Mission Lifeline, was stranded in the Mediterranean off Malta after both Italy and Malta refused to let it dock with its 234 migrants. Lifeline said a merchant vessel, the Alexander Maersk, had another 113 migrants and was also waiting for a port to receive them. Salvini has demanded that Malta, the EUÂs smallest country, allow the Lifeline to dock because it was in the islandÂs waters. Maltese authorities on Saturday provided humanitarian assistance to the LifelineÂs passengers but Maltese Premier Joseph Muscat stood Â“rm and insisted that Malta had Âno responsibilityÂŽ for the rescue. The Lifeline Âshould move from its position toward their original destination to prevent escalationÂŽ of the situation, Muscat tweeted. The rhetoric ahead of the Sunday summit extended north, with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz saying his country would reintroduce controls on its border with Italy if neighboring Germany were to turn back migrants at its border to Austria. Like everything to do with migrants in Europe lately, even this meeting is proving controversial. What started as talks between half a dozen leaders now involves at least 16, as others demanded to take part. Four countries in Eastern Europe Â„ the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia Â„ have refused to attend and reject taking in migrants in general. Referring to hasty arrangements and a domestic crisis over migration policies within GermanyÂs coalition government, the fervently anti-migrant Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, said: ÂWe understand that countries have domestic political difÂ“culties, but this canÂt result in pan-European confusion.ÂŽ ÂThis is an open invitation. Nobody is excluded, everybody is invited. Nobody is forced to attend either,ÂŽ said Alexander Winterstein, spokesman for the European Commission, where the talks will take place. With plans to reform EuropeÂs asylum laws bogged down, EU leaders hope to stop migrants leaving North Africa by paying countries like Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia to hold people until their eligibility for asylum can be established. French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday proposed that migrants arriving in Europe be placed in Âclosed centers on European soilÂŽ so authorities can quickly decide whether they are eligible to apply for asylum and send home those who donÂt qualify. Speaking in Paris after meeting with new Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Macron said European countries would take in migrants who qualify to apply for asylum, helping to remove the burden of caring for them from Mediterranean nations on the front line like Italy or Spain. Italy has proposed these asylum-processing ÂhotspotsÂŽ be located in the migrantsÂ countries of origin or transit. Ironically, the tough talk comes as the number of migrants entering Europe is dropping signiÂ“cantly. The U.N.Âs refugee agency says around 80,000 people are expected to arrive by sea this year, about half the number from 2017. ÂWe do not have a crisis of numbers. We continue to have a crisis of political will,ÂŽ said UNHCR Europe chief Sophie Magennis.Debate over migrants divides EU; Mini-summit seeks solutionsBy LORNE COOK and NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESS MISSION LIFELINE VIA APIn this photo taken on Thursday, the ship operated by the German NGO Mission Lifeline rescues migrants from a rubber boat in the Mediterranean Sea in front of the Libyan coast.IS demands release of Iraq women prisoners in hostage video Israelis, Palestinians await WilliamÂs inaugural royal visit 4 dead in suspected Boko Haram extremist attack in Nigeria Egypt officer who thought to break Israeli Bar Lev diesBAGHDAD (AP) Â„ The Islamic State group released a hostage video on Saturday demanding the release of all Sunni women prisoners from Iraqi jails. The group said it was giving the government a deadline of three days before it would execute the six men in the video, who identiÂ“ed themselves as Iraqi policemen and militiamen. The video was published on jihadist social media groups, one week after the Islamic State group announced it had kidnapped 17 policemen and members of IraqÂs Popular Mobilization Forces, which are predominantly Shiite militia groups that Â“ght for the government. A string of kidnappings claimed by IS on the highway connecting Baghdad to the north of the country has raised concerns about lingering threat posed by the group, after Iraqi forces recaptured the city of Mosul last year. Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has come under pressure in recent weeks to explain the gaps in security outside the capital. A spokesman for the Iraqi military said he was aware of the hostage video and said the armed forces were pursuing the IS sleeper cell it believes is responsible. JERUSALEM (AP) Â„ Prince William is set to arrive in Israel and the Palestinian territories this week for the Â“rst ofÂ“cial visit of a member of the British royal family, ending the monarchyÂs decades-long mostly hands-off approach to one of the worldÂs most sensitive regions. Though the trip is being billed as non-political, and places a special emphasis on technology and joint Israeli-Arab projects, the Duke of Cambridge will also be meeting with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders, and visiting landmark Jerusalem sites at the heart of the century-old conÂ”ict. The prince kicks off his Middle East four-day visit Sunday in Jordan, arriving in Jerusalem on Monday before travelling on to coastal Tel Aviv and Ramallah in the West Bank.

The Bureau of Land Management in Alaska on Tuesday asked the publicÂs help in recovering an approximately 10,000-year-old tusk stolen from the Campbell Creek Science Center, in east Anchorage. The woolly mammoth is AlaskaÂs official state fossil. The tusk was on display when the center was burglarized March 8. Anchorage police say a thief broke in through a window and only took the tusk, which weighs 100 pounds. The curved tusk is darkand light-brown, mottled and about 5.5 feet long. The tusk is 8 inches in diameter on the large end and 6 inches in diameter at the narrow end. BLM spokeswoman Maureen Clark said the tusk was one of several found in the 1980s near the Colville River, which flows into the Arctic Ocean.ODD NEWS A theft of mammoth proportions ALMANAC Today is Sunday, June 24, the 175th day of 2018.

Commit your ways to the Lord. Dear Mr. Berko: Please explain to me what a business development company is and how it works. Also, my brother, who is a certiÂ“ed public accountant, has recommended that I buy 1,000 shares of Main Street Capital. What do you think? Â„ SP, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Dear SP: Business development companies were initiated by Congress in 1980. The goal of BDCs is to encourage the Â”ow of public dollars (your investible funds) to private businesses. Generally, BDCs invest at least 70 percent of their cash in private U.S. companies or in public U.S. companies with market values of less than $250 million. And these BDCs must send quarterly, as well as annual, reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission and to their shareholders. Owning a BDC (only 55 are publicly traded) allows shareholders to have their cake and eat it, too. They enjoy the liquidity of a publicly traded stock while participating in the potential proÂ“t of private companies. A BDC must qualify as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code; distribute 98 percent of its ordinary income and 98 percent of net capital gains for one year; derive at least 90 percent of gross income from dividends, interest and capital gains; have no more than 25 percent of their assets invested in the securities of one company or two or more issues that are engaged in the same or similar business activities, limit its debt-to-equity ratio to 1-to-1 or less, and revalue its private investments every quarter. Like real estate investment trusts, BDCs are not taxed at the corporate level, as long as they pay out the required income to shareholders. This avoids double taxation and allows BDC investments to pay higher dividends than common stock. But thereÂs a string attached, because a large percentage of a BDCÂs cash distribution is considered ordinary income and is taxed at the shareholderÂs higher tax rate (33 percent to 39.6 percent) rather than the 15 percent rate for qualiÂ“ed dividends. For this reason, it makes good sense to own BDC investments in an individual retirement account, where distributions are deferred, or in a Roth IRA, where theyÂre exempt from taxation. Your brotherÂs a smart lad. I like his recommendation of Main Street Capital (MAIN-$38), which specializes in longterm equity and debt investments primarily in smalland lower-middle-market companies. This is a classy BDC. MAIN primarily invests in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the U.S. Management typically invests between $2 million and $75 million in equity and between $5 million and $50 million in debt with companies that have revenues between $10 million and $150 million and an EBITDA Â„ or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization Â„ of $1 million to $20 million. Management usually requires a Â“xed interest rate between 12 and 14 percent. And these investments are typically in the form of secured debt and equity participation Â„ and oftentimes the equity participation can be a very attractive kicker. MAINÂs management likes to make loans to well-established family-run businesses that need Â“nancing for founders who want to pass their companies to heirs. MAINÂs loans are highly collateralized. And rising interest rates may not affect MAIN as they will other BDCs. Rather, they will increase earnings, because 72 percent of MAINÂs loans have Â”oating rates. MAIN has a better record than most BDCs. Compared with its peer companies, it has impressive operating margins of 83.5 percent, a 5.1 percent return on capital and a 35 percent cash Â”ow, which are nearly twice those of its competitors. Since 2010, revenues and net income have grown fourfold, and the dividend has doubled. MAIN currently pays a monthly dividend of 19 cents a share, plus a 27.5-cent semiannual dividend. Total 2017 payout was $2.83, making for a very acceptable yield of 7.5 percent. And 2018 is looking better than any year in MAINÂs history, so expect a nice dividend increase. Listen to your brother.

The spokesman, Jonathan Friedland, conÂ“rmed in tweets that he was leaving the company, saying he was insensitive in speaking with his team about words that offend in comedy. In a memo to employees, published by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter and conÂ“rmed by NetÂ”ix, Hastings says Friedland used the word twice Â„ Â“rst in a meeting of public relations staff several months ago about sensitive words. Hastings wrote that several people told Friedland how inappropriate and hurtful his use of the word was.

Hastings wrote the second incident ÂconÂ“rmed a deep lack of understanding.ÂŽNetflixÂs top spokesman fired over use of racial termWASHINGTON (AP) Â„ White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders acknowledges in a tweet that she was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant Friday night. Sanders says she was told by the owner of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, that she had to Âleave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left.ÂŽ Sanders says the event says far more about the owner of the restaurant than it does about her. She says, ÂI always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.ÂŽ SandersÂ treatment at the restaurant created a social media commotion with people on both sides weighing in with their critique, including her father, former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. ÂBigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the ÂHate Plate,ÂÂŽ Huckabee said in a tweet, quickly generating 2,000 replies in about 30 minutes. ÂAnd appetizers are Âsmall plates for small minds.ÂÂŽ On Yelp, a reviewer of the restaurant from Los Angeles wrote: ÂDonÂt eat here if youÂre a Republican, wearing a MAGA hat or a patriot.ÂŽ But many reviewers were also supportive of the restaurant ownerÂs actions. Â12/10 would recommend. Bonus: this place is run by management who stuck up for their beliefs and who are true Americans. THANK YOU!!!!ÂŽ wrote a reviewer from Commerce City, Colorado. No one answered the phone at the restaurant, which was not scheduled to open until the evening. Lexington is about a three-hour drive from the nationÂs capital and is in VirginiaÂs Shenandoah Valley. The separation of families trying to enter the U.S. at the southern border has intensiÂ“ed political differences and passions that were already at elevated levels during the Trump presidency.

In each case, ofÂ“cers turn up in environmental suits and masks, sorting through the grisly discoveries, from pill bottles to notepads and photos left behind, hoping to piece together the lives of people like Unger who ended up in the parking lots. The bodies Â„ the shell of their physical humanity faded and decomposed by the elements Â„ are carefully removed and turned over to medical examiners. Family members, if any can be found, are contacted. Across the nation, the stories bear similar refrains: Â€ In California, a woman missing for months turned up dead. Investigators said the womanÂs body remained in the car, parked at the retailer, for up to three months. Â€ In Illinois, the body of a 49-year-old man who was reported missing for more than a month, was found dead May 18, in a van at a Bradley, Illinois, Walmart. He was seen going into the store on May 1 and then leaving a short time later. He died of natural causes, according to media reports. Â€ In Ohio, police said a 59-year-old man found April 17, in a pickup truck at an Airport Thruway Walmart, died of natural causes. The body was in the truck, parked on the side of the retail store since April 8, authorities report. Â€ Here in Florida, a Walmart employee walking the parking aisles Feb. 22, at a Tarpon Springs store reported a strong odor. OfÂ“cers arrived and found an unidentiÂ“ed body. Police suspected suicide. Walmart has a longstanding corporate policy that anyone is welcome to stay in their parking lots overnight, depending on local laws. The open-lot policies vary from area to area, depending on the store managers. ÂMost of the people we see are actually travelers, people in RVs. ThereÂs like a whole society or culture out there. We do go out and check the lots, get the cars and keep an eye out for trash, but our workers arenÂt peeping into peopleÂs cars,ÂŽ said Casey Staheli, a spokesman for Walmart, whose corporate ofÂ“ces are based in Arkansas. ÂUnfortunately, they might smell something and thatÂs when itÂs brought to our attention.ÂŽ Other retailers besides Walmart see similar deaths in their parking areas. A West Melbourne McDonaldÂs was the site of another gruesome discovery in April 2017 when a manÂs body was found inside a van. He had overdosed. But none are as pervasive or as consistent as the ones that happen at Walmart, which has about 4,000 stores nationwide. Truckers, recreational vehicle enthusiasts, and others view parking spaces as prime locations to Â“nd rest. Weary travelers see the stores as friendly and convenient, modern meccas for the nationÂs transient, mobile culture. Inside are restrooms, lower-priced groceries, medical supplies and even portable grills for cooking. ThereÂs also hot coffee, newspapers, and smiles from greeters. Others also Â“nd the lots Â„ despite the hustle and bustle or the sound of the occasional bass-heavy car blasting music Â„ as places of safety and belonging. Tommy Studstill, a Cocoa minister who advocates for the homeless, readies hygiene products, food, and clothes for clients who colonize diverse locations from wooded areas to store lots. Some who may be living in their automobiles are transient, struggling to hold on to jobs, Studstill says. Some park at Walmart in the cool of night and then move on to other sites in the heat of the day. ÂBut not everyone who sleeps at Walmart is homeless. They just might not be able to afford a motel room. Walmart is one of the very few retailers that would say, ÂLook, donÂt cause us any problems and you can go ahead and sleep in the parking lot,ÂÂŽ he said. ÂThese are people who stay low-key. For some, itÂs extremely embarrassing to be homeless, sleeping in a car. I know one man whose family lives in a car. During the daytime, the wife drops him off at work. ThatÂs why I will have to give Walmart credit for what theyÂre doing,ÂŽ Studstill said. According to estimates from the Brevard Homeless Coalition, about 845 people Â„ sheltered and unsheltered Â„ in Brevard County are homeless, according to statistics from 2017. And many use Walmart as a way station, or a place to Â“nd supplies or even live from time to time, says the groupÂs executive director Mark Broms. For others like Unger, though, the lure of the open road has led them to abandon houses and apartments and live in their vehicles. Unger, who chose to be homeless for the last decade of his life, had been writing letters to his son, talking about his exploits and a life untethered to marterialistic values. The two last talked face to face about two years ago. ÂHe was a philosopher, a wisdom-seeker,ÂŽ said Charles Unger of his father, whose remains were found at the Melbourne Walmart. Toward the end, the man who loved the Eastern teachings of Indian gurus, saw Walmart and its parking lot as another place of solace.WALMARTFROM PAGE 1CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Â„ Politicians and friends from across the country are sending thoughts and prayers to Republican U.S. House candidate Katie Arrington after she was seriously injured in a car crash in South Carolina. President Donald Trump posted on Twitter he was thinking about Arrington. U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford also sent prayers to Arrington over Twitter. Arrington defeated Sanford in the June 12 primary thanks to strong support from Trump. Authorities say Arrington was the passenger in a car that was hit head on Friday night by another vehicle on U.S. Highway 17 near Charleston. ArringtonÂs campaign says she suffered a broken back and ribs and will be hospitalized for two weeks. Authorities say the driver of her car, 59-yearold Jacqueline Goff of Mandeville, Louisiana, also suffered serious injuries. The driver of the other vehicle died at the scene, according to SheriffÂs Capt. Roger Antonio.

Invest only in companies and industries you have studied and understand well. Weigh the risks that companies disclose in their financial statements. Consider a stockÂs valuation. Assess the market capitalization, expected future earnings and price-to-sales and price-to-earnings ratios for candidates for your portfolio. Stocks that seem undervalued should offer less downside risk than exciting high-flying stocks. 4. Avoid penny stocks (those costing less than about $5 per share), commodities, futures, day trading, shorting and investing on margin. Those can be risky ways of investing. 5. Consider not investing in any or many individual stocks and just opting for a low-fee S&P 500 index fund. YouÂll match the marketÂs returns effortlessly. The stock market can be volatile, but over the long run, itÂs one of the most effective ways to build wealth.The Motley Fool TakeProfitable RelationshipsThereÂs a fast-growing kind of software out there Â„ specializing in customer relationship management (CRM) Â„ and the dominant company in the business is salesforce. com (NYSE: CRM). Its systems help companies keep track of and manage their relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers Â„ and analyze that data, too. Shares of Salesforce have more than tripled in value over the past five years, and many analysts expect continued robust growth. Why? Well, the market for CRM software is expected to surge from a recent $72 billion to $123 billion by 2021. According to industry analyst IDC, Salesforce gained more market share than the rest of the 20 largest CRM suppliers combined in 2017. The companyÂs market share gains are helping to produce tremendous increases in revenue and cash flow, with SalesforceÂs revenue popping 25 percent over year-ago levels in the last quarter to $3 billion, along with a 25 percent gain in free cash flow, to $1.3 billion. Looking even further ahead, Salesforce is on pace to hit its goal of generating $21 billion to $23 billion in annual revenue by fiscal 2022. Catalysts for further growth include SalesforceÂs incorporation of artificial intelligence in its offerings and its recent acquisition of MuleSoft, which will expand its cloud computing capabilities. Long-term investors seeking growth should take a closer look at Salesforce. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Salesforce.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentBefore and AfterUgh.

Before, my returns trailed the S&P 500. Now, IÂve been outperforming it. Â„ C.B., Los Angeles The Fool Responds: It can be tempting to buy more shares of a falling stock, as it might seem like more of a bargain. But stocks often fall for good reasons. Always dig deeply into the situation before committing any more money. Make sure that any problems you discover seem to be temporary, not permanent, ones. Growth or Value?QShould I invest in Âgrowth stocksÂŽ or Âvalue stocksÂŽ Â„ which is better? Â„ G.G., Portland, OregonAYou donÂt have to choose one or the other Â„ some of the best stocks to invest in are both.Growth stocks are tied to companies that are increasing their revenue and earnings relatively rapidly, while value stocks are tied to companies with market values significantly below what they seem to really be worth. If you find a company thatÂs growing at a solid clip and it seems to be undervalued, thatÂs a very appealing proposition, offering a good chance of stock price appreciation. ItÂs best, overall, though, to favor undervalued stocks. Even if they grow slowly, they offer a margin of safety by not being overpriced.***QAre secondary offerings and subsequent offerings the same thing? Â„ K.F., Muskegon, MichiganASubsequent offerings are often called secondary offerings, but the two events are different. When a company Âgoes public,ÂŽ it issues stock in itself via an initial public offering (IPO) on the open market. ItÂs common for insiders or large investors to keep sizable ownership stakes in the company, with only a portion of shares sold in the IPO. If these big investors later sell some of their shares to the public, thatÂs a secondary offering, and the investors collect the sales proceeds, not the company. A subsequent (or follow-on) offering happens if the company wants or needs to raise more money later (perhaps to pay down debt, finance operations or buy another company). It will create and sell new shares, increasing the number of shares outstanding and diluting the value of existing shares. ThatÂs not great for existing shareholders.Want more information about stocks?

Here are some ways to reduce your risk. 1. Invest for the long haul. Shortterm investing is more like speculating or gambling. Being a shareholder means youÂre a part-owner in a company, so commit yourself to those businesses and aim to stay invested in them as long as they remain healthy and growing. With a long investing period, you can ride out the occasional market downturns that will likely occur. DonÂt worry about what happens this year if you donÂt plan to sell for many years. 2. Learn more. The savvier you become about investing, the fewer mistakes youÂll likely make. DonÂt buy stocks merely on tips from friends or strangers without even knowing what a company does. Instead, read widely and keep reading. Start with books by Peter Lynch, John Bogle, The Motley Fool Â„ or the ÂLittle BookÂŽ series 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

WhatÂs required of you is basically attendance. If you cover that part of it, the rest will happen quite naturally out of the moment. In other words, just show up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). ThereÂs only one you. So you donÂt have to worry about being original or saying something novel or turning in unique work. It will be unique just because it came from you. ThatÂs good. And that is enough. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The time you spend following, observing and studying those you admire will not be in vain. It might feel as if youÂre loang o, but youÂre not. ThereÂs great, if intangible, value in these interests. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be careful not to attribute special qualities to people just because they happen to be attractive. Try to see what is instead of making assumptions about what probably is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). ItÂs wonderful to understand and be understood, but itÂs not necessary to love. You can still love someone you donÂt really get. You can still love someone you donÂt communicate well with. Love goes beyond these things. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel a bit invisible in some way. ThereÂs a positive side to this. You can get much done under the radar. Take advantage of the freedom and creativity that come when nobody is paying very close attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). We are all fragile. We donÂt all look it, though. Be gentle with the people in your life, as there is probably more ego on the line today than is readily apparent. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Keep in mind that oftentimes the most inuential and p ositive thin g you can do for mankind isnÂt grand at all; rather, it is small. To take care of yourself and treat yourself in a loving manner is a good start. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Figure out what youÂre going to do when the pressure is on. You wonÂt be able to tell when itÂs coming or where itÂs coming from, but when youÂre ready for unpredictable stressors, they will seem far less stressful to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Lizards, toads and chimpanzees eat whatÂs bugging them. So in solving the problem, thereÂs more than relief; thereÂs reward, too. YouÂll experience similar dynamics without having to eat bugs. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ending up where you started can be wonderful or terrible. ItÂs wonderful if you traveled far and wide like Dorothy down the yellow brick lane to Oz. ItÂs terrible if you never left. So leave. This is a no-brainer. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Small groups will get things done Â„ faster than you could do them alone and much faster than a large group could do them. The right size will be between three and 10 people. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (June 24). You will involve yourself with many eorts to lift the lives of strangers and lend support to people who will denitely be better for your care.

They are both married, live across the street from each other and spend time together almost every day. Their children play together. I spend a lot of time with both families, and my children play with theirs. Jane is having an aair with MaryÂs husband and has conded in me about every detail. She keeps telling me itÂs over, and then I nd out it isnÂt. I spoke to MaryÂs husband and told him if it doesnÂt stop, IÂll tell Mary. (Jane doesnÂt know I talked to him.) They recently had another Âweak moment.ÂŽ Should I tell Mary whatÂs going on? Her husband has cheated in the past, and she chose to stay with him. IÂm afraid the fallout from her nding out will be two broken marriages and several broken friendships. ItÂs very dicult to spend time with any/all of them knowing what I know. I feel like my silence is betraying Mary. Help! Â„ WISH I DIDNÂT KNOW DEAR WISH: You are already more involved in this than you should be, and Jane should not have placed you in that position. Mary knows she has a philandering husband but chose to remain with him. I vote for keeping your lip zipped and trying to stay out of the line of re. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 38 years. We divorced once, but remarried. We have four grown sons and six grandchildren. He retired a year and a half ago, and I went through menopause. There has been constant contention since. He wants to ght over everything and wonÂt speak to me for days, sometimes weeks, at a time. I feel I am being emotionally abused. When I asked him for another divorce, he told me not to be ridiculous. Four months ago, I moved out and moved in with my dad to be his caretaker. Dad is 95 and on home hospice. I am so much happier not living with my husband. When my father passes away, I dread having to move back with my husband. I know we probably need counseling, but he doesnÂt agree. I want to live a happy, peaceful life. My husband seems to enjoy the constant ghting. Should I get my own place and live apart from my husband when my dad passes? Â„ UNHAPPILY MARRIED IN UTAH DEAR UNHAPPILY MARRIED: Your husbandÂs silent treatment qualies as emotional abuse. You do NOT have to tolerate it. Before making plans about where you will live after your fatherÂs passing, discuss this with a lawyer. Marriage isnÂt slavery, and you do not need your abuserÂs ÂpermissionÂŽ to divorce him (again). DEAR ABBY: I am suddenly encountering workplace hostility from someone I thought was my friend. IÂm not sure if I did something to oend this person or if there is some other reason. What can I do to get to the bottom of this?

How can I document this so that I have a record for my family and for insurance purposes? Â„ Maureen of New York Dear Maureen: Use your high-tech equipment to document everything in your home in case of a ood, re or burglary. Use your smartphone or digital camera to take pictures or videos of jewelry, antiques, paintings, computer equipment or anything of sentimental value. Store one set of photos and videos on your computer and make copies for your safety deposit box or give to a relative for safekeeping. You will need these records for insurance claims. And if you have treasured old photos, store them safely and make copies. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: Watermelon is a summertime treat. Watermelon is aptly named because itÂs more than 90 percent water and surprisingly, itÂs a member of the cucumber family. When you are buying, pick the watermelon up Â„ it should feel heavy for its size, which indicates that itÂs juicy and fresh. Store watermelons in a cool area until you slice them. The cut watermelon should be refrigerated. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: DoesnÂt it just drive you crazy when youÂve just cleaned your stainless steel atware and you notice it still looks spotted? Hard water may be the cause of the problem. To eliminate these spots, lightly dampen a cloth with warm or hot vinegar, which will get rid of hard-water spots. Rub the cloth over the spotty areas, rinse well and dry quickly. When handwashing atware, donÂt let it air-dry. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: After my family and I have a great day at the beach, itÂs easy to track that beautiful sand into our car and home. Heloise, help me deal with this. Â„ Sarah from New Jersey Dear Sarah: Oh yes, that beach sand just seems to worm its way into the carpet, clothes, the car and your home. Take these steps to prevent it from getting there in the rst place: After you and your family members leave the beach, and before getting to the car, have baking soda or baby powder on hand. Sprinkle a healthy amount of it on the top and bottom of everyoneÂs feet and in between the toes because it will help to get the sand o quickly. To keep sand from getting on car seats, buy cheap plastic shower curtains and drape them over the seat. This will keep the seats from becoming wet and will contain the sand. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: If you buy a bunch of fresh herbs or have lots growing in your summer garden, you probably canÂt use them fast enough. DonÂt throw them out. Instead, freeze them, which will keep their avor and aroma. You will have fresh herbs yearround to liven up many dishes. HereÂs what to do: 1. Stem the herbs, and blanch in lightly salted, boiling water for just 5 to 10 seconds. Drain the water. 2. Put the herbs into a bowl of ice water. When cool, drain and pat dry well with a paper towel. 3. Place the herbs into sealed freezer bags and store in the freezer.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 to the House Republicans appear to have at least temporarily diffused a monthslong standoff with Congress. Democrats have criticized the multiple document requests, charging that they are intended to discredit the department and distract from or even undermine special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation into the Trump campaignÂs Russia ties and whether there was obstruction of justice. In a letter sent to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., late Friday, the Justice Department said it had that day provided a classiÂ“ed letter to his panel regarding whether the FBI used ÂconÂ“dential human sourcesÂŽ before it ofÂ“cially began its Russia investigation in 2016. Bolstered by President Donald Trump, Nunes has been pressing the department on an informant who spoke to members of TrumpÂs campaign as the FBI began to explore the campaignÂs ties to Russia. Trump has called the matter Âspygate,ÂŽ though multiple Republicans who have been briefed on the informant have downplayed its signiÂ“cance. In the letter, the Justice DepartmentÂs acting assistant director of congressional affairs, Jill Tyson, said Nunes had also asked for transcripts of conversations between conÂ“dential human sources and Trump campaign ofÂ“cials. She said the department had referred that request to National Intelligence Director Dan Coats. TysonÂs letter said the department had also given Nunes materials related to the departmentÂs guidelines under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Republicans have for months questioned whether the department abused that act when prosecutors and agents in 2016 applied for and received a secret warrant to monitor the communications of Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The department is also working to provide outstanding documents related to former British spy Christopher Steele, Tyson said, and the dossier he compiled of anti-Trump research during the presidential campaign. Trump and congressional Republicans have charged that the research in the dossier, paid for by ClintonÂs campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was used inappropriately to obtain the warrant on Page. House Speaker Paul Ryan has backed the document requests, and he led a meeting last week with committee chairmen and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to try to resolve the issue. In a television interview two days after that meeting, on June 17, Nunes said if they donÂt get the documents by this week, ÂthereÂs going to be hell to payÂŽ and indicated the House could act on contempt or even impeachment. A spokesman for Nunes did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday. Tyson also wrote House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who have requested more than a million documents as part of multiple investigations into the FBI and Justice DepartmentÂs handling of the Russia and Clinton probes. Tyson said the department has already provided more than 800,000 documents for review and Âthe FBI produced over 1,400 pages of responsive materialsÂŽ on Friday, among other documents already sent to the panel. The letter says FBI is also working to address a request about Âproposed, recommended or actualÂŽ surveillance on the Clinton Foundation. Tyson said the department was responding in a separate, classiÂ“ed letter, and that the request had proven ÂdifÂ“cult to address.ÂŽ She said the department hoped to talk to lawmakers further about it. In the letters, Tyson said the department had built Ânew toolsÂŽ to search top secret documents and had diverted resources from other congressional requests.PROBEFROM PAGE 1 Trump said, resurrecting his nickname for Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a vocal Trump critic. ÂWhen you see that, thatÂs not the senator you want,ÂŽ he added. Rosen quickly responded on Twitter: ÂIs that the best youÂve got @realDonaldTrump?ÂŽ Outside the hotel, at least 300 people protesting TrumpÂs policy of separating families at the southern border were stretched along a sidewalk outside the Las Vegas casino where the president met behind closed doors with supporters before addressing the Nevada GOP convention. His motorcade drove past a smaller group of people holding signs that said ÂResistÂŽ and ÂHistory Has Its Eyes On You.ÂŽ Trump was also holding a separate event promoting tax cuts he signed into law six months ago before Â”ying back to Washington. Heller, a past critic of Trump, had renounced Trump during the campaign as someone who Âdenigrates human beings.ÂŽ Heller suggested he wouldnÂt vote for Trump, but later said he did. Heller also received a $2,000 donation from Trump in 2015 but gave it to charity. Once in ofÂ“ce, Trump publicly scolded Heller for holding up the GOPÂs long-promised effort to repeal President Barack ObamaÂs health care law. He later repaired his relationship with Trump and helped deliver the rewrite of U.S. tax laws to TrumpÂs desk. Trump intervened in NevadaÂs Senate race in March and persuaded HellerÂs main challenger, Danny Tarkanian, to step aside and run for a U.S. House seat instead. Heller has said he didnÂt ask Trump for the favor. Accompanying Trump to Las Vegas were top former top campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, now acting as outside advisers to the president. Lewandowski joined Trump days after he responded with ÂWah-wahÂŽ during a Fox News Channel appearance after another panelist raised the case of a 10-year-old disabled girl who had been separated from her parents under TrumpÂs immigration policy. Attendees lined up to have their photos taken with Lewandowski before Trump took the stage. Trump has stepped up the pace of his political appearances in recent weeks. He campaigned in Minnesota this week for a GOP House candidate, to be followed by a stop Monday in South Carolina to boost Gov. Henry McMasterÂs fortunes in a Republican gubernatorial runoff on Tuesday. Trump is also scheduled to appear in North Dakota on Wednesday on behalf of Republican Kevin Cramer, who is challenging U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat seeking another six-year term in a state Trump won by 36 percentage points in 2016.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1BLAINE, Wash.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com As Realtors, we love to help people buy homes. But we want our customers to be happy with the home they buy, so we also realize how important it is that everyone understand if they are truly ready to move from paying rent to owning their own home. Contrary to what you may think, that decision is not just a Â“nancial one. There are many other factors to consider. Of course, Â“nances are a huge part of the decision. Obviously, you need to Â“nd a home you can afford. Determining that range includes analyzing your current cash Â”ow, interest rates and taxes. You should sit down and Â“gure out how much you bring in per month and how much of that goes back out to pay for expenses. Then take between 28 and 30 percent of that and consider that amount the price range you have for housing costs. Another test of the market is to take the price of a home for sale and divide that amount by the annual rent of a similar home. If the result is less than 20, buying is probably the best option. For example, if there is a home for sale for $120,000, and the rent of a similar home is $800 per month, you would divide 120,000 by 9,600 (800 multiplied by 12) and get 12.5. That means from a basic Â“nancial perspective, buying that home would make more sense than renting it. It is also important to remember that when you buy a home, your mortgage payment isnÂt all that goes into housing costs. You are your own landlord, which means you will also be responsible for upkeep and maintenance on your new home, as well as property taxes. That is important to factor into the cost. Another factor to consider is something called Âopportunity costs.ÂŽ That means you have to consider if the money you put into buying a home Â„ down payment, closing costs, legal fees, etc. Â„ and whether or not investing it in the stock market would be a better return than the potential appreciation of a homeÂs value. Countering that is the tax advantages that come with owning a home that arenÂt available to renters. An important non-Â“nancial aspect that should factor into a decision to purchase a home include facts like how long you plan to stay in an area. There is a thing called the national Breakeven Horizon, which is the amount of time you would need to own a home for it to make more sense than renting. Heading into 2018, that number stood at 1 year and 11 months. Another important non-Â“nancial notion to think about is if you are going to be OK with the time commitment that goes into maintaining a home. Becoming a homeowner means you canÂt just pick up the phone and call your landlord when there is an issue. You have to be able to arrange to have the roof Â“xed, the air conditioner serviced, the lawn mowed and everything else that needs to be done around the house. There are many online tools that help you calculate all the numbers that go into the decision between renting and buying. One good one is at communications. Â“delity.com/pi/calculators/rent-vs-buy/. The New York Times has a comprehensive calculator at nytimes.com/ interactive/2014/upshot/ buy-rent-calculator.html that will help, too. For some people, all of that sounds like just too much and they are Â“ne with renting. For others, the dream of owning their own home is worth the work. Which group you are in is a decision you will have to make before you begin searching for a new home.

US 27 Near SR 66863-471-0663 A number of qualify reasons support the projection that sellers should hire a professional Realtor to market their home and enjoy the current sellersÂ market due to low interest rates and the lack of new construction. This is an early 2018 decision to cash in on a sellerÂs market, and you may want to think again on this seller market advantage. Real estate information company Zillow echoes these sentiments in its predictions for 2018, expecting inventory shortages to continue to drive the housing market. With too few homes on the market to meet buyer demand, prices increase and would-be buyers canÂt afford the price or down payment needed to submit a winning offer. Despite the enthusiasm, only 6 percent of homeownerÂs surveyed plan to sell their home in 2018. Homeowner should take advantage of the following reasons within the next 12 month. Interview at least three professional Realtors familiar with your home location and hire the candidate you trust working with. Buyers have been frustrated over the last few years due to the low inventory in most markets, creating an urge to start home shopping earlier in the year to try to beat the competition so they donÂt miss out on good available properties. All through the year is a good time to sell, traditionally March through August are the best months thanks to extended day light, when folks come out of work, pick up their children and they can meet their Realtor at the properties selected and arrive home on time for regular daily chores. The last couple of years have proven beneÂ“cial for sellers encountering sales at asking price or above. Sorry to say that it wonÂt last long. Home builders predict construction of an inventory of entry level homes meeting the demand through this year, so take action and call your Realtor. Waiting can cost you a considerable difference in your net proÂ“t, because you will be competing with new construction that have being missing on the market for some years, since the recession. For both the buyer of your home and your own next home purchase, low interest rates can help make a transaction possible. In the second week of January, the average interest rate for a 30-year Â“xed-rate mortgage was approximately 4.17 percent. Mortgage rate averages reached more than 4.4 percent in 2017, but closed the year out just below the current rate. While mortgage rates arenÂt expected to spike signiÂ“cantly this year, they are forecast to increase overall. The Mortgage Bankers Association predicts 30year Â“xed-rate mortgages will rise to 4.6 percent this year, and it expects rates to rise to 5 percent in 2019 and 5.3 percent in 2020. While mortgage rates arenÂt expected to spike signiÂ“cantly this year, they are forecast to increase overall. An increase on interest rates are a sign of good economy, yet it does create for potential homebuyers to step back from the market. A current low interest rate can serve as a catalyst for potential homebuyers to get moving sooner than later. LetÂs not dismiss when interest rates continue to rise, as buyers take the lead on the market. Sellers remember to follow your Realtor tips on their input to stage the interior and exterior of your home prior to a showing for potential buyers to preview the house. There is only one Â“rst impression and sellers need to be aware that the house should be prepared in a way for the buyer to fall madly in love, giving you Â„ the seller Â„ another edge to receive a full price offer.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, Â“xed-rate mortgages was 4.57 percent, down from 4.62 percent last week. By contrast, the 30-year rate averaged 3.90 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, Â“xed-rate loans eased to 4.04 percent from 4.07 percent last week. Putting the recent decline in perspective, longterm loan rates have been running at their highest levels in seven years. The average 30-year mortgage rate reached a high this year of 4.66 percent on May 24; the 15-year rate hit 4.15 percent that day. The Federal Reserve last week raised its benchmark interest rate for the second time this year and signaled that it may step up its pace of rate increases. Over the week, worries over potential fallout from the festering U.S.China trade dispute roiled the stock market. As investors sought safety in bonds, their prices climbed and depressed their yields. Mortgage rates often take direction from long-term bond yields. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.93 percent Wednesday from 2.97 percent a week earlier. By Thursday morning, it had dipped to 2.90 percent. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnÂt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. The average fee on 30-year Â“xed-rate mortgages rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point last week. The fee on 15-year mortgages was unchanged at 0.4 point. The average rate for Â“ve-year adjustable-rate mortgages held steady at 3.83 percent. The fee remained at 0.3 point.US long-term mortgage rates fall The Reed Ferry TeamKIM REED863firstname.lastname@example.orgHELEN FERRY863email@example.com 863-382-6575 www.homesforsalesebring.com 4800 HAW BRANCH RD.

By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay Times Besides the continual evolution of their intriguing pit ching plan, the primary topics of conversation for the Rays over the next several weeks will be trades and prospects. And not mutually exclusively. Some sooner than others, the Rays are going to clear out a number of veterans. Catcher Wilson Ramos should bring a good return, and SS Adeiny Hechavarria Â„ even though all teams know they need to trade him Â„ at least something. This seems like the year theyÂd deal starter Chris Archer, if healthy, for a haul. Outfielder Carlos Gomez and relievers Jonny Venters and Sergio Romo are likely to go one way or another to open roster space, maybe starter Nathan Eovaldi, too. If the offer is right, infielder Matt Duffy and reliever Chaz Roe also could be dealt. And while the Rays have already brought up several promising prospects, such as infielders Willy Adames, Christian Arroyo and Jake Bauers, plus reliever Diego Castillo and outfielder Johnny Field, they have more coming. By the end of the season, you could see relievers Ian Gibaut, Colin Poche and Jaime Schultz; starter Andrew Moore; infielders Andrew Velazquez and Kean Wong; outfielders Joe McCarthy (pending recovery form a back issue) and Justin Williams, maybe even catcher Nick Ciuffo. The connection comes in the churn, as the Rays Â„ love it or hate it Â„ annually trade veterans for prospects. ItÂs how they roll.

ESPN first reported that the alleged third passenger, unnamed by Winston and FSU teammate Ronald Darby, was Brandon Banks, a friend of DarbyÂs who was training in Arizona and rode with Winston and Banks in an Uber with a female driver to a club on the night in question. BanksÂ attorney, Mark Scruggs, said to the Tampa Bay Times on Friday night that Winston was in bad enough condition at that club (Âunruly,ÂŽ he told ESPN) that a second Uber was called to take him home, and he left in that car alone with another female driver. ÂIt appeared that Winston was trying to lay this on Brandon,ÂŽ Scruggs said in his reason for stepping forward. ÂThey were together that night. They took an Uber to a club, the three of them did, and Brandon said nothing whatsoever happened while the three of them were in the Uber.

ÂI spoke with them a couple of times, so I knew there was an interest, but I never knew this was going to happen,ÂŽ Fortier said after being selected. ÂWhen I was 5 years old, I started playing hockey. I wanted this moment, so itÂs a great day for my family and me. ItÂs amazing.ÂŽ Fortier, 18, is listed at 5-foot-10 and 177 pounds, and he tallied 26 goals and 33 assists last season for Baie-Comeau of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. His brother, Max, is now a prospect in the Columbus Blue JacketsÂ system. Fortier said one of the players he patterns his game after is Brendan Gallagher, a 5-9 forward for the Canadiens who plays bigger than his size. adno=50536651 VALID THROUGH JUNE 30, 2018 VALID THROUGH JUNE 30, 2018 NFL: BuccaneersNew details in Winston sagaSEE LIGHTNING, 3 MLB: RaysRobertsonÂs return crowds inÂ“ eldBy RODNEY PAGETampa Bay TimesST.

HeÂll play some at short, even though we have Hetch and Willy back. And then weÂll also look at him and Wendle in the outfield. We just want to make sure everyone is in a consistent routine and getting at-bats.ÂŽ Wendle could play in the outfield sooner rather than later. With plenty of options, Cash and his staff will have to put in extra thought before filling out each lineup card. ÂItÂs going to be challenging,ÂŽ Cash said. ÂYouÂre sensitive to everybodyÂs thoughts, and they all want to play. ItÂs going to be up to me and the staff to make sure weÂre balancing it the right way and keeping everybody fresh.ÂŽArcher: ÂBullpen was really goodÂRHP Chris Archer has been out with an abdominal strain since June 2. He threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday, all fastballs and changeups. ÂThe bullpen was really good,ÂŽ Archer said. ÂI feel like the last week my body has really come a lon g wa y I donÂt wake up with any soreness. But (today) is going to be big just to see where my level of soreness is.ÂŽ Archer threw a bullpen session two weeks ago and felt soreness the day after. He had not thrown again until Friday. The plan is to throw another session Monday. ÂWe have a rough outline, most of itÂs in pencil though,ÂŽ he said. ÂAll I know is as long as I feel pretty good (today), IÂll throw another bullpen Monday, and weÂre going to continue to play it by ear.ÂŽA second opening day for KKThe last time Kevin Kiermaier played at the Trop was April 15, when he tore ligaments in his ri g ht thumb while sliding into second. He was placed on the 60-day disabled list but re-joined the Rays in Houston earlier this week. Friday was the first time playing in front of the home crowd since the injury, and he admitted there would be some nerves. ÂThis is like opening day all over for me,ÂŽ Kiermaier said. ÂThere will be some jitters, but I just need to slow the game down. IÂm excited to put on this uniform again.ÂŽ His return, so far, has not been spectacular. He was 0-for-9 at Houston, despite going 7-for-17 in rehab stints at Class A Port Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. ÂItÂs funny how this game works,ÂŽ he said. ÂI go from squaring every ball up in my rehab assignment, then my swings havenÂt been very good up here, although I was facing some good pitching. I go back to last year on my rehab assignment and I got like three hits in 20-something at-bats. Then I come up and hit like .450. But as long as my body feels good, then I know offensively things will come around.ÂŽArroyo cautiously optimisticINF Christian Arroyo has had no baseball activities since being put on the 10-day DL after last SaturdayÂs game in New York. He has a left oblique muscle strain. The hope is for him to return before the All-Star break ( J ul y 17). ÂI donÂt know what the timetable is at all,ÂŽ Arroyo said. ÂObliques are kind of tricky, so itÂs kind of hard to tell. The good thing is I donÂt think it was anything significant. It wasnÂt like I had a severe strain or anything, nothing crazy. Âƒ IÂve started to do some mobility stuff and IÂve been able to get through it.ÂŽNice start, kidNick Schnell, the RaysÂ third pick in this yearÂs draft (No. 32 overall), couldnÂt have started his professional career any better. Schnell homered in his first at-bat for the Gulf Coast League Rays. He was IndianaÂs Gatorade Player of the Year and hit 15 home runs as a high school senior.RETURNFrom Page 1 scored on AdamesÂ single. The Yankees had one hit in eight at-bats with runners in scoring position, including three unsuccessful tries in both the second and third innings. New York was limited to five hits and went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position in a 2-1 loss Friday night.Tanaka timeYankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka, on the 10-day disabled since June 9 with strained left and right hamstrings, will have his first bullpen session Sunday and may start a simulated game Friday. ÂIf you look back two weeks ago there was no way I would be able to move the way that I did today,ÂŽ Tanaka said through a translator. ÂItÂs definitely better.ÂŽRAYSFrom Page 1 look at whatÂs potentially the infield of the future. Adames, Arroyo, Bauers and Daniel Robertson were all acquired as minor leaguers (Arroyo had some time with the Giants) of various levels of notoriety in deals for big-name veterans. (Of the prospects still coming, Poche, Moore, Velasquez and Williams also were acquired in trade.) ÂIt just speaks to the Rays and their development and being educated, that they knew who to go after at the time,ÂŽ Robertson said. ÂNow that weÂre all here hopefully itÂs going to pay off for a long time, so thatÂs cool.ÂŽ HereÂs a look at the tracks of those trades:Jake Bauers-Wil MyersThe deal: The Rays got Bauers from the Padres as a Class A minor-leaguer in December 2014 as part of the return in the threeteam deal built around Wil Myers (whom the Rays got as a blue-chip Triple-A prospect two years earlier in a big deal with the Royals built around James Shields and Wade Davis). The details: Acquired with C Rene Rivera and RHP Burch Smith from San Diego along with OF Steven Souza Jr. and LHP Travis Ott from Washington for Myers, C Ryan Hanigan, LHP Jose Castillo, RHP Gerardo Reyes. The Nats got RHP Joe Ross and INF Trea Turner from the Padres. The decision: For now, itÂs pretty much on Bauers. Rivera was released, Smith injured and then lost in the Rule 5 draft, Ott is a middle reliever at DoubleA. Souza became the key piece of the return (though the Rays regrettably gave up future star Turner, who will be at the Trop Monday), playing three seasons with some success, earning team MVP honors last year. Then this spring, Souza was traded to Arizona for a package of prospects: LHP Anthony Banda (was in majors, now out for season), INF Nick Solak (Double-A All-Star), RHP Sam McWilliams (Double-A starter), Poche (Triple-A reliever).Daniel Robertson Â… Ben ZobristThe deal: The Rays got Robertson from the AÂs as a Class A minor-leaguer in January 2015 as part of the return in a deal built around longtime star Ben Zobrist (whom the Rays got as a Double-A players in July 2006 as part of the return, along with RHP Mitch Talbot, in a salary dump deal of Aubrey Huff). The details: Acquired with C/DH John Jaso, OF Boog Powell and cash from Oakland for Zobrist and SS Yunel Escobar. The decision: Robertson was the key piece once the Rays decided to deal and not re-sign Zobrist, and could dump the unwanted Escobar into the deal. Jaso got hurt opening day 2015, missed three months and left as a free agent, though he went on to play two more seasons for Pittsburgh. Powell was flipped to the Mariners in another deal and has twice been suspended for PEDs but made it to the majors.Willy Adames-David PriceThe deal: The Rays got Adames from the Tigers as a Class A minor-leaguer in July 2014 as part of the return in a deadline deal for 2012 Cy Young Award winner LHP David Price. The details: Acquired with LHP Drew Smyly from Detroit, along with INF Nick Franklin from Seattle, for Price. Seattle also got OF Austin Jackson. The decision: Former Tigers/now Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski said they didnÂt want to deal Adames, a 2012 international signee, but knew the Rays wouldnÂt do the deal with them otherwise. Franklin never arrived as promised, Smyly after three injury-marred seasons was traded to Seattle for more prospects Â„ OF Mallex Smith and LHP Ryan Yarbrough (who are in the majors now), INF Carlos Vargas (playing at rookie-level Princeton).Christian Arroyo-Evan LongoriaThe deal: The Rays got Arroyo from the Giants as Triple-A player with some big-league time in December 2017 as part of the return in a deal for face-of-the-franchise 3B Evan Longoria. The details: Acquired with OF Denard Span, LHP Matt Krook, RHP Stephen Woods from San Francisco for Longoria and cash. The decision: Getting out from under the bulk of the $86 million still owed Longoria was the key, with Arroyo, a local product the Rays have had interest in. considered the key part of the return, though there is some positional uncertainty Â„ second, third, utility. (He is currently on the DL after playing 21 games). Krook is a reliever at Double-A, Woods on the Class A DL. Span, who was foisted on the Rays with $13 million due, was going to be flipped, and was last month with (with Alex Colome) to Seattle, getting back, you got it, more prospects, Moore (starting at Triple-A) and RHP Tommy Romero (starting at Class A).Short stopsThere was some surprise when the Rays passed on promoting longtime bench coach Dave Martinez to succeed Joe Maddon in 2015 and hired Kevin Cash. But it worked out for all, as Cash has been praised often by his bosses and Martinez won a ring on MaddonÂs Cubs staff and now is managing the Nationals, who visit Monday. There should be a warm welcome for Martinez, who spent three years as a Rays player (logging the first hit in franchise history, so thereÂs your video clip for the tribute) and eight as a coach. Not wanting to give away SS Adeiny Hechavarria and/or eat his remaining $3.2 million is understandable. But given the vexing roster jam the Rays knew was coming with Willy AdamesÂ mid-June promotion, itÂs easy (and maybe unfair) to say the Rays should have been proactive and traded Hechavarria when he was playing well (and before he got hurt) in mid-May.Rays rumblingsIs singer Marc Anthony now the biggest name ever to see a game at the Trop? Bigger than Chris Rock? Or Kate Upton? Âƒ Did MLB not see the marketing value in bringing Evan Longoria and the Giants to the Trop next year? Âƒ ItÂs kind of cool, and a better show, having the Sun Sports preand post-game crew on the road rather than in their Fort Lauderdale studio. Âƒ Jim Bowden of the Athletic suggests the Rays trade LHP Blake Snell to the Yankees for prospects OF Clint Frazier, LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson. Âƒ Totally spitballinÂ here, but will Kevin CashÂs name come up as candidate for the FSU job when Mike Martin retires after next season? Âƒ Traded INF Brad Miller hit .185 in his first eight games for MilwaukeeÂs Triple-A team with one extra base hit. Âƒ Former manager Lou Piniella had a good line last week, saying Â(Joe) Maddon has basically benefitted from following meÂŽ as manager of the Rays and (with a couple in between) Cubs. Piniella is looking forward to being back in a Rays uniform for an Aug. 11 corporate sponsor event. Âƒ OF Nick Schnell, the RaysÂ third pick in the June draft, was named first-team All-American by Baseball America, top pick LHP Matt Liberatore a second-team selection. Âƒ WashingtonÂs Bryce Harper returns this week to the Trop, where as a high schooler in a 2009 home run derby he hit a legendary 502-foot blast with a metal bat. Âƒ With two straight blown saves and a velocity drop into the mid-80s following three straight days of work, ex-Ray Brad Boxberger could be losing his grip on ArizonaÂs closerÂs job.TRADESFrom Page 1 Staff ReportsThe Charlotte Stone Crabs used a three-run 10th inning to steal a 4-1 victory from the Palm Beach Cardinals Saturday night. Jermaine Palacios' RBI triple to leadoff the 10th got the scoring going for Charlotte. Robbie Tenerowicz later hit a two-run single to extend the lead.

The Sun / Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3 Associated PressMADISON, Wis. Â„ Esteban Toledo birdied four of the last six holes for a 6-under 66 and the second-round lead Saturday in the American Family Insurance Championship. Five strokes behind tournament host Steve Stricker after an opening 69 in rain Friday at University Ridge, Toledo had six birdies in a bogey-free round to reach 9-under 135. The 55-year-old Mexican player won the last of his four PGA Tour Champions titles in 2016. Defending champion Fred Couples (67), David Toms (66), Kent Jones (67) and Billy Mayfair (68) were a stroke back. ÂIÂm surprised that someone isnÂt 11 or 12 under, but the greens picked up a lot of pace today,ÂŽ Couples said. ÂI think maybe the scoring was a little easier yesterday because we got to clean the ball in the fairways, but itÂs not easy out there.ÂŽ Bernhard Langer (69) was 8 under with Madison player Jerry Kelly (69), Scott McCarron (67), Mark Calcavecchia (68), Paul Goydos (68), Joey Sindelar (68), Glen Day (69) and Brad Bryant (72). ÂThe conditions havenÂt been that easy,ÂŽ Kelly said. ÂThe pins are in some spots where you canÂt spin it and you have to hit them firm out of these kind of soft fairways, otherwise you could chunk it. ItÂs not that easy even though the course is gettable. ThereÂs just a few things going on out there to keep the scoring from going too low like it normally does.ÂŽ Stricker followed his opening 64 with a 74, ending his Champions under-par streak at 30 rounds Â„ the fourth-longest streak in tour history. ÂIt just was one of those days where I didnÂt have a lot of energy,ÂŽ Stricker said. ÂNothing Â„ hit very few good shots, really. The couple that I did hit well, I was in bad spots, and a couple bad shots even got worse.ÂŽ He had three bogeys and a birdie Â„ on the final hole. ÂThat was a big birdie in my mind,ÂŽ Stricker said. ÂIt kept me a little bit closer. No one ran away with this thing today and three shots back, a lot of guys in between me and the lead. It was a good putt to make and finally get a birdie. That was my only one today.ÂŽGOLF: PGAToledo takes Champions lead; home star Stricker drops backBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressDALLASÂ„ The stress of stopping the puck with a game on the line is no sweat compared to what young goaltenders deal with waiting to be taken in the NHL draft. Even the best goaltending prospects usually have to wait through the first round and then some before their names are called. Top-rated Olivier Rodrigue went through that this weekend. ÂNo expectation for the draft,ÂŽ Rodrigue said. ÂTotally a mystery. We all know itÂs difficult for a goalie to be selected early.ÂŽ ItÂs nearly impossible now as teams wait until the later rounds to shore up the most important position in the sport. Unlike quarterbacks and pitchers who are often top-10 picks in football and baseball, goaltenders in hockey are so difficult to project that only six have gone in the first round over the past decade Â„ including none this year. No goaltender has been taken in the top 10 since Carey Price went fifth to Montreal in 2005. In the years since, the philosophy has shifted drastically from trying to hit on an elite goaltender early in the draft to hoping for the best in rounds 2 through 7 like 23 different teams did on Saturday. ÂTheyÂre so up and down and very few of them dominate,ÂŽ Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. ÂItÂs hard. There are very few guys that are firstrounders that you can say at 18 are going to be Price or that type of goalie right off the bat. It doesnÂt happen very often.ÂŽ The first goalie off the board at this yearÂs draft was Olof Lindbom 39th to the Rangers. Armed with a successful Swedish goalie in 36-year-old Henrik Lundqvist, New York GM Jeff Gorton called taking Lindbom Âan opportunity we couldnÂt pass up.ÂŽ But as Rodrigue knows, teams pass on goalies all the time. His father, Sylvaine, is a goaltending instructor for Edmonton, which traded up to take him 62nd at the end of the second round. Rodrigue was the second of 39 goalies taken in the 2018 draft that followed the recent pattern of the position being in demand but not early. Longtime Los Angeles Kings director of amateur scouting Mark Yanetti believes there havenÂt been many generational goalies like Price and Marc-Andre Fleury recently but also points to the long development curve as a reason why theyÂre so rarely firstround picks. ÂWith the rare, rare, rare exception of like a Carey Price, Fleury, it takes a minimum of probably four to six years for a goalie to develop,ÂŽ Yanetti said. ÂDrafting a goalie very, very high with the success that they tend to have or donÂt have, Â„I think itÂs right around 50 percent (odds of) becoming a regular NHL goaltender. IÂm not even talking about elite.ÂŽ For every Price Fleury and Roberto Luongo who have strong NHL careers, thereÂs a laundry list of top-10 goalies who never panned out. A year after Nashville missed on Brian Finley sixth overall in 1999, Calgary whiffed on Brent Krahn ninth in 2000, and while Al Montoya had a respectable career as a backup, he never lived up to going No. 6 to the Rangers in 2004.NHL: DraftTeams wait on goalies at NHL draftBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressDALLAS Â„ Ilya Kovalchuk signed with the Kings in his return to the NHL, the Hurricanes and Flames pulled off a five-player trade, and John Tavares will now explore different possibilities for his future. After a dull first round of the draft, action picked up Saturday as teams laid the groundwork for more moves. The biggest is Tavares, who will begin talking to other teams Sunday when the free agent negotiating period opens. The New York IslandersÂ face of the franchise will reportedly meet with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks and three other teams in the upcoming days in Los Angeles before he can sign a contract July 1. ÂHeÂs earned every right to make whatever choice he has,ÂŽ Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said. ÂHe has a right to do that. The important thing is that heÂs an Islander at the end.ÂŽ ThatÂs far from certain after the Islanders were unable to agree to terms with the 27-year-old point-a-game center before he could open the dialogue with other teams. Just being able to woo Tavares is a tantalizing possibility, even if GMs arenÂt willing to say his name while heÂs still property of New York. ÂI think players do identify our team, our organization, as a place that they want to explore, which is a good thing,ÂŽ Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. ÂItÂs a good thing that I think players look at our place as a place they want to consider to play, which as a GM makes your life a little bit easier.ÂŽ Tavares is the biggest fish in free agency, especially considering the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals were closing in on a deal to re-sign defenseman John Carlson. Amid the fast-andfurious selecting in Rounds 2 through 7, Carolina acquired defenseman Dougie Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox from Calgary for center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin. After missing the playoffs the past nine seasons, the Hurricanes arenÂt done dealing. ÂWeÂll stay busy,ÂŽ Hurricanes GM Don Waddell said. ÂI canÂt say for sure anything will get done. IÂm pretty confident something will get done, whether itÂs in the next few days or next 10 days.ÂŽNHL: DraftTavaresÂ future, Flames-Hurricanes trade spice up NHL draftBy PAT EATON-ROBBAssociated PressCROMWELL, Conn. Â„ Paul Casey has come close each of the three previous times he has played in Connecticut. He has a great chance to break through Sunday in the Travelers Championship. Casey shot an 8-under 62 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round. Casey, whose win at Valspar in Florida in March was his first PGA Tour title in nine years, called the bogey-free round at TPC River Highlands his best of the year. The Englishman had six birdies and an eagle Â„ at the signature par-4 15th hole Â„ where he hit his tee shot onto the green and then sank a 23-foot putt. He broke out of the pack hitting all 18 greens and has a streak of 23 straight heading into Sunday. He was at 16-under 194. ÂIt was clinical,ÂŽ he said. ÂI did everything I wanted to do. I canÂt do any more than that.ÂŽ Casey was second here during his first visit in 2015, came in 17th a year later and had a fifthplace finish in Cromwell a year ago. ÂI love this golf course,ÂŽ he said. Russell Henley was 12 under after a 67,and J.B. Holmes (65), Anirban Lahiri (65) and third-round leader Brain Harman (69) were 11 under. ÂI think I can shoot a low number on this course,ÂŽ Henley said. ÂYouÂve got to make the putts. IÂm definitely hitting it well enough, and if I can get a couple putts to fall, that would be good. But I canÂt control what (Casey) is doing. I can just try to keep playing solid.ÂŽ Jason Day shot 66, and Bubba Watson 67, leaving them 10 under. Watson came from six back to the 2010 event and beat Casey in a playoff in 2015. Watson would join Billy Casper as the only players to win this tournament more than twice. Casper won his fourth Connecticut title in 1973. ÂIÂm hoping the weather is real sunny when IÂm teeing off and as soon as I putt out it gets windy and a little be of rain and gives me a better shot at it,ÂŽ he said. Morning rain and drizzle throughout the day kept the greens soft, but nobody was able to stay with Casey. The shot of the day came from James Hahn, who aced the 154-yard 11th hole. HahnÂs tee shot went over the greenside bunker on the right front of the hole, struck the bottom of the flag pole and went into the hole, which required some repair work to the front lip after taking the hit.GOLF: Travelers ChampionshipPaul Casey shoots 62 to take 4-shot lead in TravelersAP PHOTOLarge galleries form around the course as players like Jordan Spieth walks onto the first green during the third round of the T ravelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., Saturday. an Uber so he could go home on his own. ThereÂs two different Uber rides is what weÂre talking about.ÂŽ This would explain the discrepancy between the driverÂs account of Winston as her only passenger, and Winston and Darby testifying that there were three passengers. Winston did not make any reference to a second ride in defending himself when the allegations first came out in November, nor did Darby in his statement supporting Winston. Why would Winston, who had faced public allegations of sexual assault while in college at Florida State, be hanging out with another football player who was facing rape charges at the time in 2016? Scruggs said Banks had been friends with Darby since they played at rival high schools in Maryland; he said he would only characterize Winston as an ÂacquaintanceÂŽ of Banks. Winston and Darby have their own history together, as Darby and FSU teammate Chris Casher both witnessed the sexual encounter that led to Erica Kinsman of Zephyrhills accusing Winston of rape in 2012. He was not charged criminally, but settled out of court in 2016 with Kinsman, who also settled with FSU, getting $950,000 in a Title IX lawsuit against the university. Messages left with WinstonÂs attorney were not returned Friday night. Neither Bucs general manager Jason Licht nor head coach Dirk Koetter had any response to text messages seeking comment. Banks was found guilty for his role in the gang rape of a female Vanderbilt student in 2013. He is appealing to have a new trial, and Scruggs said he was allowed to be in Arizona in 2016 while the charges were still pending. Scruggs said the NFL reached out to Banks in prison as part of its investigation into Winston, but he said he wouldnÂt speak without his attorney present, and Scruggs said the league never reached out to him. ÂIt appeared that Mr. Winston was trying to deflect responsibility for this,ÂŽ Scruggs said. ÂThere were two different rides.ÂŽ As a result of WinstonÂs suspension, the Bucs will be without their franchise quarterback for their first three games, all against defending division champs from last season. They open at New Orleans, then face defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia and Pittsburgh at home, with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to fill in at quarterback. After a disappointing 5-11 season last year, the Bucs enter the year with Koetter and LichtÂs future in jeopardy if the team doesnÂt show significant improvement. Before the new details came out Friday night, Winston had gotten support on social media from one of his teammates, Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander, who came into the league with him in 2015 and himself dealt with a four-game suspension as a rookie for violating the leagueÂs policy on performance-enhancing drugs. ÂWe gotcha back @ Jaboowins IÂm riding with ya foreva! Family!!ÂŽ Alexander tweeted. The Glazer family, which owns the Bucs, has been unwavering in its support for Winston throughout the investigation. As recently as May, co-chair Joel Glazer had been confident the NFL would clear Winston. ÂI can only speak to the person that I know, the person I have known,ÂŽ Glazer said from the NFL owners meetings. ÂAnd the person everyone I know knows. ThatÂs what IÂll speak to, and thatÂs a first-class individual, hard-working, wonderful in the community, a leader and everything that we wouldÂve hoped for in our quarterback.ÂŽBUCSFrom Page 1 ÂHeÂs not the biggest guy on the ice, but heÂs not scared to go in the corner against the 6-foot-4 guys,ÂŽ Fortier said. ÂHe works hard every shift. This year, Montreal had a rough year, but everyone was talking about him and how he was working every night. I think itÂs a good comparison with me.ÂŽ The Lightning didnÂt have a first-round pick because they traded it to the Rangers as part of the February trade for defenseman Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller. THIRD ROUND: The Lightning shifted to defense in the third round, selecting Dmitry Semykin, a 6-foot-3, 191-pound prospect from Stupino in RussiaÂs Minor Hockey League. Semykin, 18, showed some scoring potential with Stupino last season, with eight goals and seven assists in 41 games. He also had 118 penalty minutes, nearly twice as much as his closest teammate.LIGHTNINGFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, June 24, 2018 / The SunBy RONALD BLUMAssociated PressMOSCOW Â„ American soccer fans: IcelandÂs prime minister wants your support. The United States is absent from the World Cup for the first time since 1986, which means up to 325 million Americans are temporarily free agents. Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir says her island nation about 900 miles (1,450 kilometers) off NorwayÂs coast is the perfect pick for their passion. Iceland is the least-populous country ever at soccerÂs showcase with just 350,000. ÂWe can do with more supporters. We absolutely need them,ÂŽ she said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. ÂWeÂve got a lot of support from people around the world. I think a lot of people like the way the Icelandic team played. I think the team spirit really was something that people liked.ÂŽ Costa Rica, Egypt, Morocco, Peru and Saudi Arabia already are out, and Argentina is on the verge of elimination, but alluring alternatives remain for those still unsure how to release their pent-up fervor with no U.S. redwhite-and-blue to root for. About 200,000 tickets were bought by American residents for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, second behind only the host nation and up from approximately 130,000 four years earlier in South Africa. The U.S. remains second this year, but the total is down to approximately 87,000, FIFA said. That means more soccer supporters back home. Reyka Vodka set up viewing parties in a dozen or so states to recruit fans for ÂStrakarnir Okkar,ÂŽ the nickname of IcelandÂs ÂOur Boys.ÂŽ Viet Lam, a 35-year-old emergency room pharmacist from Seattle, was at The George & Dragon Pub to watch IcelandÂs 2-0 loss Friday to Nigeria, which started at 8 a.m. PDT. He first visited Iceland in 2013 and has gone back two more times. Say Goodbye to Erectile DysfunctionPaid Advertisement The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood ow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and c reams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a ÂtreatmentÂŽ that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that ÂAcoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED.ÂŽ The physicians and professional medical sta at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood ow cannot enter into the penis,thus creating ED.Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, rmer and more sustainable erections. NO SURGERY(239) 887-3602Southwest Florida Medical Group www.SWFLMedicalGroup.comIndividual results may vary. All rights reserved.adno=50537836By DEREK GATOPOULOSAssociated PressROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia Â„ The criticism of MexicoÂs national team heading into the World Cup was loud and scathing. The answer has been emphatic. The Mexicans won their second straight match at the tournament, beating South Korea 2-1 Saturday to move ever closer to a spot in the round of 16. ÂWe didnÂt listen to the criticism,ÂŽ said Javier Hernandez, one of the scorers against South Korea. ÂIt was just noise.ÂŽ Mexico opened its World Cup by upsetting defending champion Germany 1-0. A second victory on Saturday gives it six points and a chance to win Group F on Wednesday when the team faces Sweden. ÂWe want the Mexican people to enjoy this. We are going to enjoy it,ÂŽ Hernandez said. ÂBut as of tomorrow we will be working hard thinking about Sweden and regardless of the results of the matches against Germany and South Korea, we are going to go out there to get the three points.ÂŽ Hernandez and Carlos Vela scored a goal each at Rostov Arena. Vela converted from the penalty spot in the 26th minute after Jang Hyunsoo handled the ball while trying to stop a cross from Andres Guardado. Hernandez added the second in the 66th, scoring his 50th goal for Mexico. He hit the ball low past goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo after collecting a pass from Hirving Lozano.WORLD CUP: MEXICO 1, SOUTH KOREA 1MexicoÂs victory over South Korea silences criticsBy TIM BOOTHAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia Â„ The desperate world champions from Germany were seconds from losing control of their World Cup fate when Toni Kroos whispered to Marco Reus just outside SwedenÂs penalty area. With the score tied in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Kroos seemed to remind Reus of a tricky set play from training that will live in World Cup lore. Down to 10 men after Jerome Boateng was given a second yellow card, Germany rallied for a 2-1 victory over Sweden on Saturday to suddenly revive its title defense thanks to a strike from Kroos that caught the Swedes by surprise and wonÂt soon be forgotten in Germany. ÂThe fact Toni Kroos put it away is just incredible,ÂŽ Reus said. ÂHeÂs shown that talent on previous occasions but really in this case it was practically the very last opportunity to win this match.ÂŽ Kroos lined up for a free kick as if he was going for goal but just tapped the ball to Reus, who held it with his toe as the defenders paused. Kroos swung his right foot, curling the ball past a spinning Sebastian Larsson and over the outstretched hand of diving goalkeeper Robin Olsen. The Swedes watched the ball go in, mouths open in disbelief. The Germans ran to Kroos and erupted in emotional relief. ÂHappy of course. It was a tough game again today for us,ÂŽ Kroos said. ÂWe suffered. ... If you donÂt score an early goal and we have the chances then itÂs going to be difficult until the end. It was, but now of course weÂre happy because I think we also deserved the victory.ÂŽWORLD CUP: GERMANY 2, SWEDEN 1Kroos scores late to give Germany win over Sweden By GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressELKHART LAKE, Wis. Â„ Robert Wickens emerged from his trailer after a meeting with engineers, taking a brief break after practice at Road America. Finally, the IndyCar rookie has to get ready for a race at the rural Wisconsin road course. Wickens is off to an impressive start this weekend at Road America, a year after taking his first IndyCar spin around the 4-mile track as a substitute driver for Mikhail Aleshin for one day of practice. Now the Canadian, a former DTM star, has the full-time IndyCar ride. HeÂll stay in the driverÂs seat of the No. 6 car for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports for the 222-mile Kohler Grand Prix on Sunday. ÂWhen I drove the free practice here last year ... this was just kind of a (check off) a bucket-list item, driving IndyCar on one of the best tracks in America,ÂŽ Wickens said Saturday. ÂA year later, IÂm a full-time IndyCar driver,ÂŽ he added. ÂThis is a new car, itÂs a new season and so far itÂs going well.ÂŽ Wickens will start fifth on Sunday, building on top-five finishes in all three practice rounds at Road America this weekend. It helps that Wickens feels comfortable on road courses. He put up impressive times this weekend at Road America despite not actually racing at the course since 2007. ÂIÂm at home a road course. I can jump into this IndyCar and IÂm confident right away I can be quick,ÂŽ he said as crew members worked on the car in the garage after practice. Still, a year ago, he held back while subbing for Aleshin. The Russian driver had brief troubles returning to the United States after the 24 Hours of Le Mans. ÂBecause if you put it all on the line and you crash,ÂŽ Wickens said, Âyou look like that idiot who crashed when you were just reserving for someone else.ÂŽ Back then, Wickens said he was happy driving in Europe in DTM with MercedesAMG Motorsport. But he made the move to IndyCar this year after Mercedes said it was pulling out of the series. Wickens grew up with fellow Schmidt driver James Hinchcliffe, who recommended Wickens in the first place to fill in last year for Aleshin. Wickens and Hinchcliffe were karting teammates as teens in Canada. Hinchcliffe said he tried to Âsit backÂŽ and let team members come to their own conclusions about Wickens.IndyCar rookie Robert Wickens returns to Road AmericaAP PHOTOIn this May 21, 2018 file photo Robert Wickens, of Canada, waits in the pits before a practice session for the IndyCar Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in Indianapolis.

SOCCER: World CupFree-agent fansIceland, Mexico, England compete for World Cup support from AmericansBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressSONOMA, Calif. Â„ William Byron recently got instruction on the finer points of road racing from two coaches. He also used a simulator, did countless hours of study and drove Saturday in the K&N Pro Series race to prepare for his first NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway. ÂI feel like IÂve made some good progress on the road courses this year,ÂŽ Byron said after finishing third in the K&N race. The 20-year-old rookie still realizes that nothing substitutes for experience on the winding turns and changing elevation of this unique track. Even then, itÂs awfully difficult for any oval-centric driver to sustain any career success in a race that hasnÂt had a repeat winner since 2000. Byron is a quick study, though: He qualified in eighth in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet on Saturday, putting himself in position to be a player Sunday in a race that nearly anybody can win. Â(On Friday) I really started getting my rhythm of what I needed to do better,ÂŽ Byron said. ÂI kind of put that all together (Saturday) to try to get where we need to be. It was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. It was cool.ÂŽ Sonoma is a highly enjoyable stop on the Cup circuit for most of the drivers, but itÂs even more fun for their families and sponsors, who flock to Northern California for a pleasant weekend. The areaÂs gracious vibe contrasts sharply with the difficult racing for drivers on a circuit with only three non-oval courses on its schedule. ÂThese are the types of events where, honestly, nobody cares about the race except us,ÂŽ Kevin Harvick said. ÂEverybody has a hell of a time when they come to Sonoma, because they can bring their wife, bring their friends, and the sponsors all come and we have big events. It could be the best race youÂve ever seen at Sonoma or the worst race, but everybody is going to have a great time.ÂŽ Byron isnÂt the only driver doing extra preparation for those sharp turns, though. Aric Almirola has struggled mightily on road courses throughout his career, and he never finished better than 14th in six career starts at Sonoma. He has rededicated himself to learning the skill for Stewart-Haas Racing.AUTO RACING: NASCARDrivers embrace Sonoma challenge

JOB | 2SEBRING Â„ Having outgrown his Â“rst location and more than doubling the number of vehicles on the lot, Ken Anderson is amazed with the growth of Dollar Smart Car Mart in less than two years. ÂIÂm astonished that what has happened in such a short time,ÂŽ Anderson said. ÂThe people that have become friends, AllStar (Car Sales) next door and Danny McPhail down the street, have both been great mentors for us. ÂWeÂve made a commitment to sell only cars $10,000 and under, so we are not in direct competition with them,ÂŽ he added. Dollar Smart is at 2661 U.S. 27 S. in Sebring. It is open six days a week. Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The car business is the last place Anderson thought of being in now. He had previously worked in real estate development that included selling manufactured homes. However, Anderson had to do look for a new career after, as he said, the housing market DOLLAR SMART CAR MART By BILL ROGERSCORRESPONDENTDoubling the business in two years BILL ROGERS/CORRESPONDENTThe sta at Dollar Smart Car Mart includes, from left, Crystal Anderson, Ken Anderson, Jim Neely and Brian Anderson.CAR| 2
D2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 24, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Âturned bad.ÂŽ Anderson said he came to Sebring about seven years ago because of family. He said he did something that probably was ill-advised and that is buy a car, Â“x it up and sell it. He said he did that a few times and eventually established a relationship with a dealership in Jacksonville. Through a network of friends and people that knew both Anderson and those at the dealership, he got a Âvery good deal on rentÂŽ for a place on Kenilworth Boulevard. After receiving his dealerÂs license in December 2016, Anderson said he started with four or Â“ve cars. He said that the lot on Kenilworth was able to hold between 20 and 22 vehicles but as it turned out that was not going to be enough space. ÂWe couldnÂt accommodate the number of cars that we were selling on our lot,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe just needed more room.ÂŽ An opportunity came along that he wasnÂt expecting. Anderson said he was approached by someone regarding the property on U.S. 27, and they negotiated a lease with an option to buy. ÂSome other friends in the business had told him that if anybody could make this place work it would be me and Crystal,ÂŽ Anderson said, referring to his wife. ÂWe now have anywhere from 40 to 50 cars at any given time.ÂŽ Anderson said if he did an analysis of the inventory the average age is between 2005 to 2008 and the average mileage is 60,000 to 160,000. ÂWe do have some very, very nice cars here that are 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 that weÂre still able to offer with low mileage under $10,000,ÂŽ he said. They put an emphasis on having the car ready and meeting the expectations of the buyer. He said that they also try to do something that is a surprise for the customer such as providing a full tank of gas. Each vehicle goes through a thorough checklist that includes lights, power steering, Â”uids, battery, air conditioning, wipers and even tire nuts. He said they have three mechanics working in three bays in the new location. Dollar Smart only services its own vehicles. He said that the business is not open to the public as a garage. ÂThe purpose for having our own service department is so we can keep our costs down, so we can reÂ”ect better prices to the public,ÂŽ he said. Anderson said he thinks the business has grown so fast is because they take Âextremely good careÂŽ of their customers. Anderson said there is no dealer fee at Dollar Smart. The customer pays the price of the car, plus tax, title and tag. ÂA lot of people seem to appreciate that,ÂŽ Anderson added, noting there are other places that will charge $600, $700, $800. ÂThey didnÂt know about until you get in and sign the papers.ÂŽ Financing is available. ÂCredit is not a requirement and bad credit is not an obstacle,ÂŽ he said. The telephone number is 863-304-8350. Anderson can be reached on his cell phone at 863-273-4505. Dollar Smart has a Facebook page. CARFROM PAGE 1to get a resume revised. We Â“nd out what skills people have that will transfer to the jobs that are available now, and we provide one-on-one assistance to people who need resume help,ÂŽ Donna Doubleday, president/CEO of CareerSource Heartland, said. The organization also offers mock interviews that give job seekers practice answering difÂ“cult questions and gaining conÂ“dence in their interview skills. ÂI found the program to be extremely beneÂ“cial. It reinforced how to design a resume and cover letter geared towards the job being applied for,ÂŽ Leslie Deese, who used the services at CareerSource Heartland, said. ÂAlso, there was practice in interviewing. When I Â“nished, I left with conÂ“dence in how to search for the right job.ÂŽ Some of the funding for CareerSource Heartland is provided through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which provides Â“nancial help for those who need help attaining self-sufÂ“ciency. People who meet their criteria may receive assistance with tuition and books. CareerSource Heartland has a list of approved training providers, including SFSC, Indian River State College and other training centers, to help people train for in-demand jobs, such as commercial drivers, industrial machinery mechanics, nurses and welders. Although some people may desire to go back to school for a speciÂ“c program, others may be more interested in on-the-job training, and CareerSource Heartland can direct them toward employers who are open to this option. The organization will also help people register for job banks. ÂPeople are often unaware that there are specialized job banks for trucking companies and medical personnel,ÂŽ Doubleday said. SFSC encourages employers to come directly to its campus and meet their students. ÂWe open our campus to employers who would like to promote job opportunities to our students via free Featured Employer events,ÂŽ Colleen Rafatti, director of the Career Development Center, said. ÂThose businesses work with us to set up a table display in a prominent area on campus and speak with students who have an interest to provide information and answer questions. ÂWhen we schedule these, we promote the upcoming event to students via our internal platforms and with posters around the campus,ÂŽ Rafatti said. According to Rafatti, another service the college provides is the ability to create a free account in College Central Network, a nationwide database that provides local, statewide, and national job listings, internship opportunities, and online tools for creating resumes, cover letters and electronic portfolios. This is available to anyone, by appointment. ÂOne major hurdle awaiting SFSC graduates and others transitioning to the workforce is affording business-appropriate clothing for job interviews,ÂŽ Rafatti said. ÂIn todayÂs competitive employment market, showing up for an interview with the wrong attire can cost an applicant a chance at landing a good job. ÂMany local college students come from low-income families and lack the ability to purchase interview-appropriate clothing.ÂŽ The Dress for Success program focuses on providing clothing to SFSC students, veterans and people who have been referred by social services agencies. According to Rafatti, clothing is stocked for a diverse range of sizes, and ranges from workplace casual (slacks, khakis, blouses, and polo or golf shirts) all the way to traditional business professional (suits, dresses, button-down shirts and ties, blouses, and skirts). Goodwill and consignment shops offer affordable solutions for people who do not qualify for the Dress for Success program. Women can purchase a dress from Goodwill for just $5.98, and men can purchase pants for $4.98 and dress shirts for $4.98. People can Â“nd clothing for interviews for less than $10, and the career services offered by SFSC and CareerSource Heartland are free. Job seekers can Â“nd their dream jobs while spending very little money thanks to the numerous resources available in Highlands County.

Sunday, June 24, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | D3 www.highlandsnewssun.com borrow; doing this can make the debt feel more real, personal Â“nance experts say. And having that information accessible will help organize repayment planning and your postgrad budget, says Vince Shorb, CEO of the National Financial Educators Council. Shorb suggests creating a Â“le that includes lender information, loan amounts, interest rates, dates when payments will begin and payment amounts. To estimate what youÂll pay each month, use a student loan calculator.Stick to a spending planThink of a college spending plan as a shortterm strategy for your money. ItÂs more Â”exible than a traditional budget and factors in money available only after tuition, fees, room and board are funded. Your spending plan could look like this: Say you have $1,000 for a 15-week semester and you know youÂll be making one trip home at Thanksgiving that costs $200. That leaves $800, or $53 per week for extras. A spending plan shows how overspending one week will leave you with a cash shortage the next week. Even a $50 shortfall can feel stressful, says J. Michael Collins, faculty director for the Center for Financial Security at University of Wisconsin, Madison. ÂYouÂre doing this plan to create ways to reduce the stress you have on yourself, so youÂre not behind and trying to catch up,ÂŽ Collins says.Consider paying student loan interest nowStudent loan payments typically begin when your grace period ends, six months after leaving school. But for all except subsidized federal loans, interest builds daily and is added to the total amount you owe when payment begins. If your spending plan allows, you can lessen your total debt by making monthly interest payments while youÂre in school. Or send a lump sum interest payment before the grace period ends.Build credit for the futureCreditworthiness is key to getting approved when you rent an apartment or apply to get a credit card, auto loan or home loan. The sooner you start building credit, the longer your history will be. ThereÂs a risk with credit cards if you donÂt repay the debt, but you shouldnÂt be afraid to get one, says Bryan Hoynacke, assistant director of Â“nancial wellness in the student wellness center at Ohio State. ÂIf you donÂt have a credit card, you donÂt learn how to use it with lower Â“nancial stakes,ÂŽ Hoynacke says. As long as you pay your bills on time, using a card will help your credit. To get a credit card, you need to be 21 or have a co-signer or an income. Another option is to become an authorized user on someone elseÂs card, like a parent. But before you get any card, read the Â“ne print, including speciÂ“cs about its annual percentage rate. ÂIf thereÂs a big zero percent APR sign pulsing in front of you, you are going to want to Â“gure out how long that zero percent lasts,ÂŽ says Sean Stein Smith, CPA and an assistant professor at Lehman College in Bronx, New York. Find the interest rate that will be applied to any outstanding balance after the no-interest introductory period.Steer clear of financial predatorsFinancial predators come in all shapes, so avoiding them often comes down to trusting your gut: If a transaction seems shady, donÂt do it. Some red Â”ags are easy to spot, such as toogood-to-be-true deals or pressure to send money fast. Other scammers are harder to avoid, such as credit card thieves. Defend your money by automating fraud alerts from your bank and credit card company to let you know about unusual purchases. Anna Helhoski is a writer at NerdWallet.

Â„ Darden RestaurantsÂ fourth-quarter topped Wall Street expectations, buoyed by strong sales at most of its restaurants. Darden appears to be capitalizing on AmericansÂ appetite for eating out. Even though gas prices are climbing, Americans spent more at bars and restaurants in May, with sales up 1.3 percent, according to the Commerce Department. Americans seem to be highly conÂ“dent about the economy, buoyed by steady job gains, an unemployment rate at an 18-year low and Trump administration tax cuts. For the three months ended May 27, Darden Â„ the owner or Olive Garden and other restaurants Â„ earned $174.5 million, or $1.39 per share. A year earlier, the Orlando, Florida-based company earns $123.8 million, or 98 cents per share. ThatÂs 4 cents better than what analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research predicted. Shares surged more than 9 percent before the opening bell on Thursday. Revenue increased to $2.13 billion from $1.93 billion, beating the $2.12 billion that Wall Street expected. Sales at Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants open at least a year both rose 2.4 percent in the quarter. At Eddie VÂs, the Â“gure jumped 3.6 percent and at The Capital Grille the metric climbed 2.6 percent. Yard House, Seasons 52 and Bahama Breeze also reported sales growth. For Â“scal 2018, Darden Restaurants Inc. earned $596 million, or $4.73 per share, on revenue of $8.08 billion. Going forward, the company anticipates Â“scal 2019 earnings of $5.40 to $5.56 per share.

The chief selling point: The property was set up for vacation home rentals. And the buyer is eager to continue that business. ÂWe see more investors who are looking to do things this way,ÂŽ said Dorfman, who works for Native Realty. ÂI call them the savvy investor.ÂŽ On a grander scale, home sharing is becoming an attractive option for South Florida developers who are installing liberal rental programs for would-be residential owners, including partnerships with Airbnb, the third-party booking company, and Pillow, a short-term rental management service that serves as property manager and listing expert for residents. ÂHistorically speaking, a lot of people have had their second homes here since before the internet,ÂŽ said Tom Martinelli, public policy manager for Airbnb in the Southeast. ÂIf itÂs a home or in a multi-family building, owners are getting smart to optimize their assetÂŽ so they can retire earlier or make additional income. ÂDevelopers are seeing these trends and catering to this market as well,ÂŽ Martinelli said. But traditional hotel operators take a dim view of the home-sharing phenomenon, particularly through the increased use of multi-unit properties. They assert that the business distorts the playing Â“eld in the favor of Airbnb and its homeowner partners. Home sharing, they argue, has ballooned into a full-blown, multimillion dollar business, and is no longer just a side hustle for moms and pops in search of extra income. ÂThese are not people bringing someone into their spare bedroom to make a few extra bucks,ÂŽ said Troy Flanagan, vice president of government affairs/industry relations for the American Hotel and Lodging Association. ÂYouÂre seeing the conversion of residential quality of life into a tourist hotel,ÂŽ he said. ÂThatÂs something the local governments have to take a close look at.ÂŽ A 13-city study by the hotels arm of CBRE, a national real estate services Â“rm, leaves no doubt that the homeshare business is booming, driven in large part by multi-unit residential complexes. The study Â„ which included Miami and tracked the numbers of hosts, units and revenue between October 2014 and September 2016 Â„ found that revenue generated year over year by Airbnb hosts almost doubled in 2016. And the multi-unit hosts were the fastest growing segment of the business in terms of numbers of hosts, units and revenue generated in 2016, the study found. Hoteliers argue that many home-share operators donÂt register with their cities as required, donÂt collect and pay tourist and sales taxes, and donÂt follow rules of the road set by local governments. But Airbnb says it is making a proactive effort to collect taxes through agreements it has struck with counties and states. On June 8, it announced that it delivered more than $12 million in tax revenue to Broward and Miami-Dade counties during the Â“rst year of tax collection agreements with both jurisdictions. The agreements were signed in April 2017. Palm Beach County does not have a collection agreement with Airbnb. Around the country, some local governments are taking drastic actions against home-share operators. Last week, the Boston City Council voted to forbid investors from engaging in home sharing, triggering a bitter rebuke from Airbnb. ÂThe new ordinance unfortunately creates a system that violates the privacy of our hosts, and prevents Boston families from making much-needed extra income in one of the countryÂs most expensive cities,ÂŽ said Airbnb spokeswoman Crystal Davis in a statement. After Airbnb came on the scene, many local governments created ordinances mandating the registration of operators and rules of conduct. Miami Beach is looking to impose tougher requirements on how properties are advertised. Fort Lauderdale is considering additions to an existing code that governs vacation rentals. According to the city, the majority of complaints received by its staff stem from noise, parking and the number of people who occupy rental units at any given time. In a set of recommendations issued last month, the staff urged that the maximum number of occupants approved by the city should be included in vacation rental lease agreements. It also recommended that guests of rental occupants be required to leave the premises by 9 p.m., or go indoors. The commission has yet to act on the recommendations. South Florida developers who allow multi-unit owners to engage in short-term leasing say there is a rising demand for home-sharing among owners. Besides, they say, their partnerships with Airbnb actually ensure that local rules are followed and that taxes are collected. David Arditi, founding principal of Aria Development Group, developer of the YotelPad project, said his highriseÂs home-sharing option is an outgrowth of MiamiÂs diversity. ÂWe acknowledged that, especially in downtown Miami, a large part of the ownership universe is not local,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt resides outof-state and overseas. Absentee owners use their home several months over the years, and the ability to offer the buyer universe a Â”exible rental option is ideal. We know people want it. We know people like it. We said, ÂWhy not be proactive about it?ÂÂŽ ÂIn our case, owners will have the ability to have their home professionally managed and administered through a program through Yotel or agents or services like Airbnb,ÂŽ he said. Harvey Hernandez, founder and owner of Newgard, and a co-founder of Niido, asserted that his Â“rmÂs partnership with Airbnb is a way to ensure that local rules governing rentals are enforced. In addition to NewgardÂs home-sharing project in Kissimmee, The Gale Residences Fort Lauderdale Beach is being marketed as a ÂÂ”exible livingÂŽ complex with a managed rental program that encourages tie-ins with Airbnb. ÂItÂs a way of allowing the activity in our properties and provides the opportunity to our tenants to basically monetize that asset that they lease from us when theyÂre not using it,ÂŽ Hernandez said. ÂInstead of Â“ghting the activity, we are controlling it.ÂŽ ÂWeÂre Âƒ making sure the municipalities get their taxes, and making sure everybody registers,ÂŽ Hernandez said ÂIf anything, we see ourselves as a solution to the problem.ÂŽBy DAVID LYONSSUN SENTINELÂHistorically speaking, a lot of people have had their second homes here since before the internet.

ÂIf Your Not Happy...WeÂre Not Finished.ÂŽ561-248-4979 Summer jobs for teens are an endangered species worth saving. These seasonal jobs offer more than a paycheck. Summer employment can: Improve academic performance, especially among lower-income teens. Teach important employment skills, including teamwork and problem-solving. Give teens real-world experience demonstrating a work ethic and satisfying bosses who expect them to earn every dollar. ÂWe donÂt naturally know how to be good employees,ÂŽ says Kathy Kristof, editor of SideHusl, a review site for part-time employment. ÂWe learn, just like we learn the alphabet, with practice.ÂŽ A recent survey indicates many college graduates may be hitting the job market unprepared to meet employer expectations. While 89.4 percent of recent grads rated themselves as proÂ“cient in their work ethic and professionalism, only 42.5 percent of surveyed employers shared that view, according to the National Association of Colleges and EmployersÂ Job Outlook 2018. ÂYou have 22-year-olds who might have a stellar academic record but theyÂve never held a job,ÂŽ says Andrew Challenger, vice president of executive outplacement Â“rm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. ÂTheyÂve missed out on some important life skills.ÂŽ Summer jobs used to be where many teens learned those skills. The summer labor participation rate for teenagers peaked at nearly 72 percent in July 1978 and remained over 60 percent through the 1990s, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Now the teen labor participation rate is closer to 40 percent. Economists point to several reasons for the drop in summer employment: Â„FEWER JOBS. Retail was once a reliable source of jobs for inexperienced workers, but many chains are shuttering brick-andmortar stores or going out of business altogether as more shopping moves online. Â„MORE COMPETITION. Older workers may be shouldering aside the young. For example, the percentage of food-preparation jobs held by teenagers has been declining, while the percentage held by those 20 to 34 and 55 or over is growing. Immigration appears to be affecting teen employment, as well. Federal Reserve economist Christopher L. Smith found that an increased population of lower-skilled immigrants had a bigger negative impact on youth employment than on adult employment.Why your teen should work this summer Nerd WalletLIZ WESTON SAVE LIVES.

The government created the public service loan forgiveness program with a simple premise: Take a job to help the greater good and get some debt relief down the road. In reality, the process of getting that promised relief has been neither simple nor forgiving. A confusing set of rules and servicers who provided misleading or incorrect information left many people perplexed by the process and denied forgiveness. ÂThis is one of those well-intentioned programs that has made millions of peopleÂs heads spin,ÂŽ said Rohit Chopra, a Federal Trade Commissioner and student loan expert. The program was designed to encourage people to take jobs in teaching, social work, public health or other positions that typically require higher education but pay modest wages. To avoid Â“nancially crippling these workers, the government would forgive the balance of certain federal student loans after they worked full time for at least 10 years for a government or not-for-proÂ“t organization and, during that time, made 120 monthly qualifying payments. The program was established in 2007, so the initial round of forgiveness was supposed to begin in fall of 2017, but very few people have made it through. The US Department of Education said that at last count, about 16,000 applications have been submitted for loan forgiveness but fewer than 1,000 people are expected to be eligible to receive that debt forgiveness in the Â“scal year ending Sept. 30. Things became so problematic that the U.S. Department of Education announced last month that Congress made $350 million available for borrowers to be reconsidered for forgiveness if they had already been denied. So if you are trying to navigate this process, hereÂs some help:The basicsTo begin, educate yourself on the basics requirements: you need to have the right kind of loan, the right kind of job and right kind of repayment plan (and payments). Anything less than all of these and youÂll be rejected. Check out the U.S. Department of EducationÂs website at studentaid.gov/ publicservice for more information.The loanYou must have a federal direct loan to qualify. Other popular ways to borrow Â„ such as a Perkins loan, Federal Family Education loan or through a private lender Â„ do not qualify. If you have federal loans that do not qualify, you can consolidate them into a direct consolidation loan. But beware, that starts the clock anew on the 120 monthly payments needed to garner forgiveness. If you donÂt know what type of federal student loans you have, log into studentaid.ed.gov to Â“nd out.The jobWhat counts as qualifying employment trips people up, said Adam Minsky, a lawyer who specializes in student loans. You must work full time, which is based on your employerÂs deÂ“nition of full-time or at least 30 hours per week, whichever is greater. If you have multiple jobs, you can meet the requirement if you work a combined average of 30 hours per week. It is your employer Â„ not your job Â„ that determines whether you meet standards for qualifying employment. Employment with a government organization at any level Â„ federal, state, local or tribal Â„ counts. Serving as a full-time AmeriCorps or Peace Corps volunteer also qualiÂ“es. It gets a little trickier when it comes to notfor-proÂ“ts. If you work for a not-for-proÂ“t that is tax-exempt under Internal Revenue 501c3 rules, you are Â“ne. Otherwise, the not-forproÂ“t qualiÂ“es only if their primary purpose is to provide Âqualifying public service,ÂŽ which is a list of 12 different services. To clear up any confusion, you can Â“le an employer certiÂ“cation form each year. ItÂs not required but it will help determine if your employer is qualiÂ“ed, help with record keeping and head off any problems early.

PG&E warned Thursday that its liability could be much higher after California determines the cause of all the Â“res, which killed 44 people and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses.Tariffs stir unrest among American whiskey producersLOUISVILLE, Ky.
