News Wire Dr. St. Louis: Work is a callingSEBRING „ When Dr. Myron St. Louis received the Highlander Award for Best Surgeon, he said it was nice to get recognition for long hours and sudden call-ins. However, thats not why he puts extra time at his practice and at Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center or gives spare time to Samaritans Touch or the food bank at his church, Seventhday Adventist Church on Hal McRae Boulevard in Avon Park. He does it because he wants to see less coronary and circulatory disease, which he has seen in the last eight years as Highlands Countys one board-certi“ed vascular surgeon. My motivation is one of service,Ž St. Louis said. I believe that our health was a major motivation.Ž St. Louis also said he cant do his work without the staff in his of“ce. They help him help others have good health. The Bible, St. Louis said, in the book of Third John, chapter 1, verse 2, states the divine wish is for people to prosper and be of good health. St. Louis said he wants to help people practice healthy diets and prevent vascular disease. Its a product of fast food and other excesses of life, he said: The result of a postmodern society. These diseases are a result of the way we eat,Ž St. Louis said. By the time we are aware of that fact, its almost too late. If we are aware of better ways of eating,Ž he added, the precedence of these problems would be decreased.Ž Its not easy, he said. Restaurants, for example, provide big portions to make customers feel they are getting a value for the price, and to make visitors feel like they are successful for being able to afford such a lavish meal. Then after many years, they end up in a catheterization lab, like the By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ The School Board of Highlands County and the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce have been meeting often on school safety issues, including adding more school resource of“cers in preparation for the upcoming school year. Deputy Superintendent Andrew Lethbridge said the district is continuing to have school safety meetings with the Sheriffs Of“ce as part of the planning for 2018-19 school year. They will meet soon to review the school safety surveys that were conducted on the site of each campus by Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce Florida Crime Prevention Practitioner Nell Hays. We are still looking at shoring up different procedures and recommendations,Ž Lethbridge said. Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations Mike Averyt said the district received additional safe-school funding from the state, but the details on how to implement the law are still being worked out. The safety recommendations from Hays can be addressed with another allocation of state money once that is done, he said. A self-evaluation is required and the district is still in the process of doing that. As far as resource of“cers, that requirement under the law, we are still negotiating with the Sheriffs Of“ce on that,Ž Averyt said. The state either wants every school to have a school resource of“cer or an armed and trained employee or the districts own security department, he said. We are negotiating with the sheriff on resource of“cers; we would rather have resource of“cers than arm our teachers or hire that kind of a person.Ž Time is short and they are trying to get it all implemented by Aug. 1, Averyt added. There is a lot of pressure on this and it is a big topic statewide. The “rst day of school for students is Aug. 13. Hays had previously conducted a safety review of the school campuses in 2013 following the Sandy Hook, Conn. school shooting.District/Sheriffs Office meeting on school safetyBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ When Hurricane Irma cut power and toppled phone lines, emergency managers could count on at least one thing: Amateur radio operators. Each year, the operators run shortwave radios at the Emergency Operations Center and have members of the Amateur Radio Emergency System (ARES) stationed at shelters with their own radios. They spent Saturday and Sunday preparing to do it again this year. The Highlands County Amateur Radio Clubs ARES operators club joined roughly 40,000 operators across the nation to practice getting set up quickly, contacting as many other operators as possible, and basically being a lifeline. Saturday wasnt the best day for it, solar-wise, said Bradley Haag, public information of“cer for the Highlands radio clubs ARES members. Solar spot activity, already waning in an 11-year cycle, was low. Radio operators depend on that radiation to ionize the upper atmosphere, which lets them bounce signals from on point on Earth to another point well beyond the horizon. Still, they did well. Pete Jordan of Sebring, call sign K1PJ, had up to 20 contacts in the “rst 45 minutes of the drill Saturday afternoon just using Morse code. I usually make 300-400,Ž Jordan said. Every amateur radio operator has an alphanumeric call sign, issued by the Federal Communications Commission. The club has a group call sign of K4W, Jordan said. Fred Seely of Avon Park, AA4ME, said the annual event takes place the same day over the country. The local ARES group had four stations set up in trailers outside the EOC and in a radio room near the EOC situation room, where Neal Hodges of Sebring, W4JNH, coached Bill Robfogel of Sebring, KN4JNS, on pulling in contacts. Hodges said it would have been easier if air-conditioners Field dayBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERMike Gormley of Sebring, amateur radio call sign WA8VEC, types up an email as part of the ARES Field Day exercise Saturday at the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center. Gormleys emails were being sent using shortwave radio to bounce the signal o the upper atmosphere to other relays connected to the Internet. Amateur radio operators getting ready for next storm PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFA portable antenna array, developed by George Sweat (pronounced Sweet), call sign K4QJP, lets amateur radio operators set up antennae for multiple radios in short order at Saturdays ARES Field Day at the Emergency Operations Center. Fred Seely of Avon Park, amateur radio call sign AA4ME, adjusts power leads to a 12-volt battery being used to power portable wireless radios during the ARES Field Day Saturday at the Highlands County EOC.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 25, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Kenilworth Lodge is 102 years old, still standing but all boarded-up and may never open again. And this is sad for local residents. Memories of the huge wood-burning “replace lit on a cold wintry day, the huge welcoming lobby with comfortable chairs and couches and TV, and the large dining room where Mr. and Mrs. George Sebring would entertain their guests. Also, the grand staircase, the bikers, golfers and other groups that stayed there year after year and the special events that were held there. Lastly, the large front porch overlooking Lakeview drive with many rocking chairs for resting and relaxing. Before the road was put in, the lawn stretched all the way to Lake Jackson. What great memories. The Kenilworth Lodge built for George Sebring in 1916 was so popular that additional rooms were added a few years later. Most of the guests at that time came to Sebring via the train. That changed when hotel guests began arriving in automobiles; namely Henry Fords Model T. Those staying at the Kenilworth were always met at the train station and transported to the hotel by car. From their arrival until their departure, they had little use for a car as the hotel management furnished almost everything for their entertainment and their everyday needs. There was a beauty parlor, barber shop, a gift shop, orchestra for dining and dancing and movies in the lobby twice a week. There was no reason to leave the hotel except to play golf, go “shing or stroll down to the CircleŽ and back for the exercise. Kenilworth Lodge “t into the basic plans of George Sebring and his son H.O. (Orvel) Sebring. It was an ultra-plush resort of its era with a minimum daily charge of $25 per person (quite a lot in those days). No children and no pets permitted, and they boasted that it maintained at least one member on the staff per guest. Many national and internationally known “gures were among the guests every year. The hotel as other hotels in the area was open for three months only during the season. So successful was the Kenilworth Lodge that a second ultra-plus resort was planned a quarter mile south on the lake front by George Sebring. At this point, along the shore, there was a low, boggy marsh and the land rose sharply and formed a knoll on which Mr. Sebring planned to build another hotel which would be even more exclusive than the Kenilworth. The marsh would be converted into a boat basin and a marine beauty spot. The project never reached maturity. The land was sold during the Florida Land Boom of the 1920s and the purchaser contracted with the Acme Construction Company to “ll the marsh with sand dredged from the lake. At the outbreak of WWII, cottages were built on this “lled land for use by of“cers serving at Hendricks Field. The area became known as Snob Hollow.Ž The cottages are located in the area of Lakeview Drive across from Crescent Beach. From: Trivia, by Allen Altvater for the Sebring Historical Society 1985.

We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words. Letters will be edited to length as well as for grammar and spelling. All letters must be signed with full name … not initials. An address and telephone number must be included. The phone number and address are not for publication, but must be provided. In the case of letters that are emailed, the same rules apply. Due to the number of letters received, we are able to run only four letters per person per month. The Letters to the Editor section is designed as a public forum for community discourse, and the opinions and statements made in letters are solely those of the individual writers. The newspaper takes no responsibility for the content of these letters. Not too long ago, Chris Crowley, a Republican running for state attorney, stood on the steps of the old Lee County Courthouse and tried to make an election issue out of a book written by his opponents father. In a news conference, Crowley insinuated that his opponent, Chief Assistant State Attorney Amira Fox, might not be a trustworthy candidate because her father, Taher Dajani, wrote a book about his journey from Palestine to America. Crowley went so far as to say he was very concernedŽ about Fox because she had a radical, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel book dedicated to her.Ž We do not share his concern. What Foxs father wrote about his experiences is not pertinent to the race for the seat being vacated by current State Attorney Stephen Russell. The book, From Palestine To America,Ž is a self-published, 156-page soft cover memoir that details the separation of land in the Palestinian territories during the formation of Israel in 1948, when Dajani was 14. It does deal with the Middle East con”ict between Palestinians and Israelis from a Palestinian viewpoint. The book is dedicated to Fox, her mother and sister. It includes a section about Fox and her history. Crowley said hes worried about whether Fox agrees with what her father wrote. The response to that? So what? Foxs views on the con”ict between Palestinians and Israelis have nothing to do with conviction rates and the level of crime being reported … issues so far in the race. If she were pro-Palestinian, would that make her less quali“ed as a candidate? Crowley seems to imply that. Were she pro-Israel, would that make her a more loyal citizen of the United States of America? One loyalty doesnt naturally follow the other. Foxs resume is boringly American. She was educated in Washington, D.C., universities. She began her career in 1990 as an assistant state attorney with the 20th Judicial Circuit, so she has prosecuted a few cases. She has been in private practice. She is based in Fort Myers. She is married to a retired of“cer with Collier County Sheriffs Of“ce. They have four kids, two dogs. She is not a mystery. She is no more subversive than she would be if her father were an Israeli and had written a book about his experiences from his perspective. In published reports, Fox has been quoted as saying, My father is 84-years-old and his book, written over a decade ago, is written from his perspective on his life, not mine.Ž Exactly. Her viability as a candidate needs to be weighed on her quali“cations and her perspective on issues important to the voter. Never mind something her father once said. If Crowley thought it would be good campaign strategy to join the social media discussion of the books pertinence to the campaign, he needs to stop listening to that voice in his head. If someone advised him to do it, that someone should be “red posthaste. Crowley needs to stick to the issues … the real ones. „ Sun NewspapersCandidate should stick to genuine issuesTeaching fear is bad for AmericaKeeping students safe while they are in school has become a national issue with potentially far reaching consequences for our future as a nation. While there are many possible solutions to the dangers that students face each day in school, it seems that many people are trying to shift the subject to curtailing the rights of law-abiding Americans in the guise of increased safety. Those who are willing to surrender rights to attain safety end up with neither. Those willing to surrender the rights of others for feel-good solutions are not interested in safety at all. A layered approach to student safety seems an obvious and uncostly start that could be enhanced as experience is gained. Allowing teachers and students to have input and a hand in their own well-being is not a substitute for professional responders when school violence occurs. Teachers and students are not guards, but they would represent a signi“cant deterrent. Most people plotting murderous rampages pick soft targetsŽ that they know will allow them unfettered access to victims before the authorities can respond. They want an easy and risk-free way to kill. A layered deterrent might include a simple tall fence around the school leaving a single point of entry, plus entry monitoring using people and cameras, plus designated responders inside the school, plus individual school response plans, and specially trained and designated law enforcement responders. Schools would thus not resemble fortresses, but the safeguards would be obvious to all. Risk for the offender would be signi“cant. Costs would be incurred over time as the safeguards, each inexpensive, were put in place. Trying to shift the blame to the gun culture is an odious bait and switch. Federal statistics show that guns are used to prevent almost three times as many crimes as there are crimes committed with guns. Having a gun and indicating you are ready to use it convinces many criminals to stop. Parents and those who have been on the frontline who advocate an anti-gun message are teaching fear. That is bad parenting and bad for America.Scott Bean SebringTime to support re servicesCounty commissioners have a thankless job. Listen to the “re chief Marc Bashoor and youd think “re services are going away. Listen to the citizenry (payers) and you hear the plights from the impoverished to the local church issues to fairness. All have valid points. The public has no say as to what has taken place because of any inaction and lack of response from leadership at the time. I am optimistic about our county as a whole and know all is not that dire although important nonetheless. A spiffy PowerPoint presentation did not convince most meeting attendees (unless of course there would be a bene“t). I may not be good with studies,Ž but I know “nancial services and why they have always been due to my spending and not a lack of revenue. It is time to set aside our differences and support our “re service organizations. We must choose the path to be the most appropriate for a county of 100,000 residents (payers). This path must be like a marathon and not a race. We can do this without losing both churches (and the necessary services they provide) to the residents throughout our community, and at the same time allow businesses here in Highlands County to continue and thrive in manners that attracted them here in the “rst place. We can succeed. Slowly and fairly.Judd Berkey SebringLeft lane hogsNot only is it uncourteous to hog the left lane, it is illegal. By staying in the left lane you instill impatience in following drivers, which leads to dangerous actions. Driving on the Right Side of a Highway Title XXIII Motor Vehicles Chapter 316 State Uniform Traf“c Control 316.081 Driving on right side of roadway; exceptions: (1) Upon all roadways of suf“cient width, a vehicle shall be driven upon the right half of the roadway, except as follows: (a) When overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction under the rules governing such movement; (b) When an obstruction exists making it necessary to drive to the left of the center of the highway; provided any person so doing shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles traveling in the proper direction upon the unobstructed portion of the highway within such distance as to constitute an immediate hazard; (c) Upon a roadway divided into three marked lanes for traf“c under the rules applicable thereon; or (d) Upon a roadway designated and signposted for one-way traf“c. (2) Upon all roadways, any vehicle proceeding at less than the normal speed of traf“c at the time and place and under the conditions then existing shall be driven in the right-hand lane then available for traf“c or as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway except when overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction or when preparing for a left turn at an intersection or into a private road or driveway. (3) On a road, street, or highway having two or more lanes allowing movement in the same direction, a driver may not continue to operate a motor vehicle in the furthermost left-hand lane if the driver knows or reasonably should know that he or she is being overtaken in that lane from the rear by a motor vehicle traveling at a higher rate of speed. This subsection does not apply to drivers operating a vehicle that is overtaking another vehicle proceeding in the same direction, or is preparing for a left turn at an intersection.Capt. Bill Sides Lake Placid Keep pets safe this FourthWith the Fourth of July rapidly approaching, Phantom Fireworks would like to remind our friends and customers that some pets adversely react to the lights and noise of “reworks. With a little extra effort, our pets can be spared the trauma they sometimes experience from “reworks. Phantom Fireworks asks that you please be mindful of the following: € Keep your pets indoors during “reworks displays. € Turn on the TV or radio and air conditioning to help mask the noise of the “reworks. Keep pets in a soothing, dark room with light jazz or classical music playing. The idea is to muf”e the “reworks noise with something soothing. Close draperies to help soundproof the residence. € Many suggest walking or exercising the pet prior to the “reworks in an effort to tire out the pet in the hopes the pet will sleep through the “reworks. € Be home or have someone at home indoors with the pet to offer encouragement and support for the pet. € Close all windows and doors and block pet doors to prevent escape. € You could try distracting the pet as soon as the “reworks begin by involving the pet in something enjoyable like fetch.Ž € Prepare a safe area where the pet can burrow inŽ to feel safe. Maybe some blankets under a bed or a blanket draped over a small table. € Play a radio near that area. Feeding the pet in the area will help the pet associate the area with other good things. € Do not take your animal to a “reworks show or let the pet outdoors while “reworks are being used. € You might consider consulting with you veterinarian several weeks before “reworks season. Some pets may require sedation. The veterinarian could suggest some behavior modi“cation techniques. Many of these suggestions have come from Press-Enterprise, Riverside, CA; Blue Cross for Pets (UK); Pet MD; Humane Society of US; and The Telegraph (UK). Phantom Fireworks hopes you enjoy the Independence Day holiday safely and show courtesy and compassion to your pets and animals.William A. Weimer Vice President Phantom FireworksYOUR VIEW

Most used voice radio, either analog or digital, but one sent out emails, including one to the Highlands News-Sun: Hi Phil,Ž the message read. This message is composed as an email, but sent by way of Amateur Radio wavelengths. It then gets converted from the airways, back into the Internet, and “nally is delivered to you through normal email.Ž It was signed, Mike Gormley; Sebring, FL; WA8VECŽ Gormleys email, sent at 2:59 p.m. arrived at the reporters inbox in a few minutes. Its similar, Gormley said, to a mobile satellite Internet connection apparatus the county trucked in after Hurricane Charley in 2004. That one allowed residents whod lost power, Internet and phones to let family know they were OK. Such systems take pressure off remaining phone lines to let emergency responders work freely in the aftermath of the storm. Stand-alone communications also help relieve emotional pressure for residents. In situations, such as when storms hit the Cayman Islands or Puerto Rico this past year, amateur radio running off batteries, generators or solar panels might be the only communication, said local professional broadcaster and amateur radio operator Dave Onsted, W9CWN. The exercise ensures hams can set up communication in short order when needed. Its a simulation,Ž Onsted said. Its a serious point to a bunch of old guys playing with radios all night.Ž His tongue-in-cheek comment holds truth. Haag, 62, counts himself second youngest of the group. Onsted said Internet and smartphones now hold young peoples interest. There was once a novelty to amateur radio once, Onsted said. Before cell phones, the only people who could make a phone call from their cars were either really wealthy or had a VHF radio, broadcasting through antenna relays. Haag said most of the emergency radio operators stay in county year-round, but are always available in case of hurricanes. If we are somewhere (else), we scoot back quick,Ž Haag said. Were the only ones heading back.Ž Onsted, using a laptop to log in his contacts while dialing an analog radio, said the exercise can last until 2 a.m. After being a ham for 55 years, hes one of the few who sometimes goes that late, drinking Red Bull and staying up all night. It takes him back to college days, he said, but he said the late hours make Monday morning radio ads really sound cheesy.Ž Usually, when a hurricane hits, Onsted is on the commercial station, though. This is the stuff that gives me the buzz,Ž Onsted said. Haag said he was surprised how many showed up during and after Irma for shelter at the Highlands NewsSun Center without any bedding, extra clothes or supplies. People got lackadaisical,Ž Haag said. We hadnt had one in a while.Ž Jordan said a lot of people showed up at the Lake Placid High School shelter with nothing. They expected us to feed and entertain them,Ž Jordan said. On top of that, the generator wouldnt start and toilets clogged, but the radios worked “ne. We had fun,Ž Jordan chuckled.RADIOFROM PAGE 1 one at Florida Hospital in Sebring, to diagnose heart conditions, such as clogged arteries, and, in some cases, have stents installed to keep those arteries open. St. Louis said hes glad people in the United States, especially Highlands County, have that option. In Trinidad, his home country, most patients with similar problems dont get them treated or even diagnosed until the limb has died and they need amputation. One of the reasons this has come up in countries like Trinidad is new availability of fast food and cheap, large portions. Once youve had fast food, its hard to reject,Ž St. Louis said. That always comes up with my patients.Ž St. Louis said he can put in a stent or bypass an artery, but it wont last if people dont alter diets, control their diabetes and/or quit smoking. Whats his prescription? A vegan diet, or at least one where patients avoid all animal ingredients „ meats, fats and animal parts „ for two or three days a week. The more natural, the better, he said. As long as its balanced, its shown to reduce plaque in arteries. There are enough variety of foods to get everything they need,Ž St. Louis said. In poorer communities, people dont have options, even in local groceries. They may not have a way to prepare food in a palatable way. Thats why he works with the food pantry, he said, and Creation Health, a service of Florida Hospital that connects patients to dietitians and local organizations, like churches, that have cooking classes. It all has to be a personal decision, he said, and a long-term, daily one. The best way to make healthy changes is not based on long-term decisions,Ž St. Louis said. Its making decisions today. Make time today to do one thing or another. You wont get discouraged as with long term goals.ŽDOCTORFROM PAGE 1 Pete Jordan of Sebring, amateur radio call sign K1PJ, tells how hes gotten up to 20 contacts in the rst 45 minutes of Saturday afternoons ARES Field Day exercise just using Morse code. I usually make 300-400, he said.

That adjustment might earn him a second Bassmaster Elite Series title and a healthy $100,000 payday. Tharps efforts produced 15 pounds, 10 ounces of bass today, giving him the lead going into Championship Sunday at the 2018 Bassmaster Elite at Mississippi River presented by Go RVing. His two-day total is 49-12 „ only 1 ounce ahead of Aaron Martens of Leeds, Alabama. The moderate ”ooding of the Upper Mississippi has been a hot topic in La Crosse this week. Its affected the “shing for most of the “eld „ some good and some bad. For Tharp, its kept him on his toes. I knew my pattern was falling apart. The more the water levels increased, the more concerned Ive been that my bass would move,Ž he said. And they did. I started out in the same area I have been over the past couple of days, and after an hour or so I knew the “sh werent there any more. I decided to call an audible, and it paid off.Ž The 49-year-old pro said that he was catching bass right along a section of the bank that is now under water, and the bass are no longer positioned on the same structure.SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN SEIGO SAITO/B.A.S.S.

Though he started from pole in the No. 16 Sick Sideways Global Mazda MX-5 Cup entry and held his lead in the opening laps, it wasnt long until he fell victim to the massive drafting potential presented by Road Americas 4.014 miles. That was a tough battle,Ž Dean said. I tried to do the same thing I did yesterday and run the same lines and same defensive technique, but obviously the other guys werent having it!

Dean found himself in the lead behind the safety car, with teammate Nathaniel Sparks behind him. Sparky disappeared and I dont know where he went, but it must have been one heck of a battle to get back to the front,Ž Dean said. When I saw him behind me for the restart, I felt pretty con“dent that we could hold the positions.

The Sick Sideways teammates worked together to hold off the rest of the “eld and crossed the “nish line with Dean out front and Sparks in second. It was an impressive comeback for Sparks in the No. 8 Sick Sideways car, who started second, but tumbled down the order in the opening lap. He spent nearly every lap thereafter door-to-door with another car, clawing his way back to second. Finishing a hard-fought third was Robert Stout in the No. 28 McCumbee McAleer Racing machine. His teammate, Joey Bickers, led brie”y in the No. 34 McCumbee McAleer car, but just missed the podium, “nishing fourth. The highest “nishing Masters Class entrant was Todd Lamb in the No. 84 Atlanta Speedwerks MX-5.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, June 25, 2018 As we age, we notice symptoms creeping up every few months. With women, its called menopause and includes many symptoms such as fatigue, forgetfulness, hot ”ashes, vaginal discomfort or atrophy, decreased libido, irritability and insomnia. Menopause can be surgically induced, as occurs when you get a total hysterectomy. With men, its termed andropause and the symptoms include reduced fatigue, sex drive, weak erections, depression, loss of strength and muscle mass, weight gain as well as occasional night sweats akin to a womans hot ”ash. You might “nd that youre less competitive than normal. In the news recently, there have been some interesting “ndings reported from brand new studies. The “rst that comes to mind is about post-menopausal women and how they have an elevated risk for heart failure or coronary heart disease if they have higher testosterone levels compared to estradiol (an estrogen hormone). What about your brain and mood? For sure, psychological symptoms are one of the “rst (and worst) things noticed by men and women during menopause and andropause. You might think youre going crazy, and so might those around you. It differs for everyone, and new research suggests that if youve been struggling with mental health issues prior to menopause/andropause, they are bound to get worse. In particular, symptoms such as panic attacks and suicidal ideation seem to heighten, and its much harder to deal with than typical annoyances such as depression, irritability, mood swings, insomnia and memory loss. The CDC found that the rate of women committing suicide has been on the rise since the year 2000, its up by 50 percent and the average age is between 45 and 64. I have to wonder how many of these people were brought to the brink from the use of mind-bending anxiolytics or antidepressants that are thought to impair otherwise good judgment and possibly raise risk of suicide. It brings to mind fashionista Kate Spade and TV chef Anthony Bourdain, both of whom were taking anti-anxiety medications. They impact your brain and sometimes in a good way, but also in a bad way due to unexpected side effects. Today, Id like to offer a few tips that could help you, as a couple, age more comfortably together, and minimize the problems that drive people to doctors, or worse, to psychiatrists who numb you with mind-bending drugs. Here are eight ideas to get your hormones balanced: 1. Manage stressful situations 2. Avoid estrogenic chemicals 3. Maintain a healthy sex life 4. Watch what you eat 5. Exercise 6. Actually, sleep at night 7. Get enough rest 8.

Always check with your doctor before following any medical advice.Its tough getting older Dear PharmacistSUZY COHEN On June 12, the American Medical Association announced that drug shortages pose an urgent public health crisis. This crisis should be of concern to all Americans. The Food and Drug Administration de“nes a drug shortage as a period of time when the demand or projected demand for a medically necessary drug in the U.S. exceeds its supply.Ž All too often, a shortage means that doctors cannot give the right drugs to patients when needed. Serious drug shortages are not a new phenomenon. The FDA recognized their prevalence and established a Drug Shortage Program back in 1999. The problem, however, persists. In short supply Currently, the U.S. is short on 182 drugs and medical supplies, according to the American Society of HealthSystem Pharmacists. The list includes IV bags, injectable morphine and other powerful painkillers, anesthetics, antibiotics, electrolytes, cancer drugs and much more. All of these are of critical importance to patients with serious illnesses. Why do drug shortages occur? The AMA blames the current crisis in part on the damage caused to production facilities in Puerto Rico by hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Furthermore, the governments efforts to combat the opioid crisis by reducing the availability of opioids has hampered the ability for hospitals to obtain necessary painkillers. Production delays at manufacturing plants or delays in procuring raw materials from suppliers can also contribute to shortages. Some companies choose to stop manufacturing a drug in order to focus on newer, more lucrative medicines. If a manufacturer is one of only a few producers or the primary producer, even a temporary stoppage can have harmful market effects. For example, only seven companies make most of the sterile injectable drugs sold in the U.S. If one of these has dif“culty or discontinues production, it would be very hard for the By SHARON HOFFMANCASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITYPose a public health crisisAP PHOTOIn this Monday, Jan. 8 photo, certied pharmacy technician Peggy Gillespie lls antibiotics into a syringe for use as an I.V. push at ProMedica Toledo Hospital in Toledo, Ohio.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 25, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Eating in noisy restaurantsWhat is the number one complaint of diners in 2018, according to a Zagat study? Noise, of course. Restaurants seem to be following a new trend. They are more open, and they play background music to help ensure a good time for all. This extra noise and multiple voices speaking at once makes it dif“cult to focus and carry on conversations ... especially if you have a hearing loss. Noise was reported 24 percent of the time as the top complaint. Service was 23 percent, crowds 15 percent, high prices 12 percent and parking “nished up the tally at 10 percent. The study looked at restaurants in 10 major U.S. cities during dinner rush time on Saturday. It was found that the average decibel level was about 79 decibels (dB) with peaks as high as 138 decibels. So 79 dB is like a garbage disposal running or a diesel truck moving at about 45mph; 133 dB. is like standing beside an ambulance with a siren blowing. Remember, average speech is between 60-65dB. Over time, exposure to sounds or environments above 85dB can cause hearing loss. The cities and restaurants that were surveyed (and their peakŽ at dinner time): € Austin at Lamberts Downtown Barbecue „ 113 dB. € Chicago at Siena Tavern „ 138 dB (Ouch!). € Denver at Acorn „ 117 dB. € Detroit at Republic Tavern „ 121 dB. € Nashville at Urban Grub „ 133dB. € Portland at The Observatory and Portland City Grill „ both registering 119dB. € San Diego at Barleymash and Ironside Fish and Oyster „ both at 114 dB. € Seattle at Metropolitan Grill „ measuring in at 124 dB. € St. Louis at Stacked SLT „ gets pretty noisy too at 121 dB. Finishing out the study was: € Washington, DC at Estadio „ 116dB. There were “ve restaurants examined in each city. This was done at dinner time rush hour. One-hour time frame and the noise level measured every 10 minutes. The average noise levels were also con“gured. The two cities with the quietest dining scenes on average was Austin at 75dB and Seattle at 76dB. The loudest average was Nashville at 82dB and Portland at 81db. Of the 50 restaurants in the study, only two were below 70 decibels while the average was around 80 decibels. It was interesting that the decor did not offer much relief during rush hour times. Relaxed and formal dining with softer surfaces did not help much during peakŽ times. However, the newer state of the artŽ steel and glass and tile restaurants always were louder and more dif“cult to hear in whether it was peak time or down time.Ž So, what does this mean? We are a social world. We like to eat and laugh with our friends and family. While it can be dif“cult when we have normal hearing, it can be depressing and aggravating when we wear hearing aids. Hearing instrument technology and accessories like remote microphones are available to help control background noise and provide the patient with the best possible speech understanding. If you wear hearing instruments and are having dif“culties, then talk to your hearing health care provider about new noise control features and accessories that may help you in your speci“c listening environments. #ToHearBetterIsToLiveBetter!Roseann B.

Monday, June 25, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 www.highlandsnewssun.com Oh! My aching backThis is the season when almost everyone is busy getting ready for summer vacations. Whether you are visiting family or going to the beach for the day or leaving for a vacation destination there is lots of lifting … gifts, suitcases, beach paraphernalia. Dont ruin your fun by lifting wrong and hurting your back. Backs were never meant to be the main force in lifting. The spine is vulnerable in bending especially if you add a little twist. The stronger leg muscles are the power lifters.ŽStand in front of the object you are trying to lift. Spread your feet apart and bend your knees instead of bending the waist. If your knees wont bend, you are probably should recruit someone else to lift. Recruiting help is a good idea even if your knees bend and you are lifting a very heavy or awkward object (think furniture or suitcases trees). If you are not lifting the object onto/into an area that is straight ahead, lift and then turn by moving your feet. It may seem easier to simply twist but your spine is very vulnerable to injury in twisting. The closer to your body you can hold the object the better off you are because the force on you back is lessened. Uh! Oh! Youve been rushing and remember to use your legs just as your back begins to hurt. Put ice on it immediately. Take some acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen. (Do not drink if taking acetaminophen and do not take ibuprofen or naproxen if you have ulcers or take blood thinners). Lie down either on your side with your legs curled up or on your back with some pillows underneath your knees. If the pain is very severe or if you have numbness or tingling, contact your primary care doctor. Most back pain takes two weeks to get better no matter what you do. Moist heat (think shower) helps stiffness. Try to avoid sitting as this loads your spine and aggravates the sprain. Another way people get injured lifting is if, as many are nowadays, you are a caregiver. The same principles apply. If you are trying to help someone out of bed, have them roll onto their side. Stand facing the person feet apart. Lift the shoulders as they swing their feet off the bed. This way gravity will help. Once the person is sitting, have them place their hands on the bed if they can help push up. If they cannot have them place their hands on your shoulders. As you lift with your legs, lean slightly back. Gravity will help with the lift. Going from standing to sitting is easier but gravity is no longer your friend. Have the lifteeŽ put his hands on the arms of the chair and bend your knees to slowly lower the person in to the chair. Getting out of cars is similar. Have the person turn so their feet are out the car door. (There are swivels available for car seats if even turning is dif“cult). If they can have them use the panic handleŽ most autos have on the door frame. Bend your knees. Do not lean into the car. This requires more strength and causes more back injuries. If the person you are helping move has dif“culty holding on, therapy belts, a webbed belt that goes around the lifteesŽ waist is a good way for the caregiver to hold on. Remember use your head to plan and your knees to lift and enjoy a healthy happy holiday.

ColumnistDIANA CARR Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the peripheral nerves and often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in the hands and feet. These symptoms may herald the onset of diabetes and should be checked out quickly so that the underlying cause can be treated. Although one of the most common causes is diabetes mellitus, there are many other causes such as alcoholism, autoimmune diseases (Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis), exposure to poison or heavy metals, medication including chemotherapy, inherited disorders, trauma, tumors, vitamin de“ciencies and bone marrow disorders. In addition, there is a large group of sufferers for which there is no distinct causative agent. This is known as idiopathic peripheral neuropathy. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy might include: €Gradual onset of numbness, prickling or tingling in the hands or feet €Sharp jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain €Extreme sensitivity to touch €Lack of coordination and falling €Muscle weakness or paralysis if motor nerves are affected Seek medical care right away if you notice any of these symptoms, so that the root cause may be identi“ed and treated effectively and further damage to the nerves can be avoided. The worst case scenario within the neuropathic diabetic population is a wound that goes undetected because of loss of sensation, gets infected and leads to an amputation. Podiatric practitioners are pro“cient in the treatment of neuropathy and are committed to the prevention of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations which are still occurring at a rate of 150,000 per year.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, June 25, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Working out close to bedtime may not be as detrimental to sleep as previously thought. In fact, some sleep experts are now saying that workout sessions including those that occur late in the day can be mutually bene“cial for improving sleep duration and quality. In the past, researchers believed that exercise in the evening could increase heart rate, raise core body temperature and send stimulating hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, through the body, which could adversely affect sleep. However, recent “ndings say its not all that troublesome. A study in the Journal of Sleep Research found that people who exercised vigorously for 35 minutes before bed slept as well as they did on nights when they did not exercise. The National Sleep Foundations 2013 Sleep in America poll also showed that people who exercised reported they snoozed better than those who didnt work out, and exercising closer to bedtime did not affect sleep quality. Dr. Stuart Quan, a professor of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School, says the best workout time generally varies from person to person. Those who want to exercise at night can see how it impacts their sleep. If no problems occur, then nighttime workouts can continue. Its also notable to point out that adrenaline and cortisol only take an hour to regulate and return to normal levels after vigorous activity. So slipping under the sheets an hour or two after a workout may be the best advice for nocturnal “tness fans. Did you know?METRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS In the CLASSIFIEDS!

When health care providers cannot administer needed drugs, they cannot provide proper treatment. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices conducted a survey of almost 300 health care providers in 2017. A majority of participants felt that drug shortages had affected their patients. Seven in 10 stated shortages made them unable to provide some patients with recommended treatments. Almost half believed that as a result, their patients received less effective therapies. In addition, 75 percent of participants stated that they were forced to delay patient treatments because of shortages. In one case, a delay in treating sepsis with sodium bicarbonate may have contributed to a patients death. Other poor outcomes included more pain or discomfort during procedures because appropriate drugs were unavailable. Drug shortages also contribute to increased health care costs. Medical staff must spend time managing drug shortages. They must track inventory, identify alternatives and make decisions about rationing scarce resources. In addition, some vendors engage in price gouging when selling drugs in short supply. The cost of this deplorable practice may reach over US$400 million a year. Drug shortages can have other consequences for doctors and patients. Physicians face the unenviable task of explaining to patients that they cannot receive needed drugs. This can be demoralizing for patients and make them lose trust in the medical profession. Additionally, insurers may refuse to pay for a treatment that is substituted for a drug in shortage. They may insist the alternative medication is not standard therapy and therefore will not be covered. Finally, drug shortages can adversely affect medical research. If drugs that are being studied are unavailable, research projects may have to be postponed, suspended or canceled. Tackling the problem By law, manufacturers are required to report the expected duration of shortages and the reasons for them to the FDA. They must also provide noti“cations of production discontinuances and temporary interruptions. FDA states that it posts information about drug shortages on its website. However, it is not clear where on the website this data is placed. Indeed, many health care providers indicate that they do not consistently receive information that could help them prepare for shortages. The FDA states that it works with manufacturers to resolve drug shortages as quickly as possible. Fortunately, in recent years, there have been fewer drug shortages than earlier in the decade. However, the number still hovers around 200 annually. In my view, this “gure remains unacceptably high and all too often compromises patient care. The drug shortage crisis must remain a priority for the government, the health care industry and the public at large. This article was originally published on The Conversation.

As a young nursing student, Lethbridge had the unique experience of completing SFSCs ADN program with her competitive mother, who motived her to challenge herself and succeed. Once she began working as a nurse and an educator, Lethbridge came to rely on her extended family of choiceŽ as she experienced the joys and heartbreaks of a profession that wants more of us than we sometimes have to give.Ž Were nurses,Ž Lethbridge said. Well work through lunches, bathroom breaks, weekends, holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and our own mental and physical exhaustion. Sometimes we do have more to give, and we can do this because we are not alone. We are surrounded by a family who empowers us, who shares their energy with us, who love us.Ž Former Class President Patrick Carey III used his parting remarks to remind his peers of the value they bring to nursing. Were all entering this profession for different reasons,Ž he said. As much as we want to be nurses, nursing needs us in return. Nursing needs caring souls, different perspectives, and critically thinking minds. I know each and every one of you has these qualities to offer and will use them to accept head-on the awesome responsibility of which we will now be entrusted.Ž Graduates committed themselves to upholding the ethics of nursing by reciting the Nightingale Pledge, a modi“ed version of the Hippocratic Oath, in which they vowed to maintain and elevate the standards of my profession,Ž aid the physician in his work,Ž and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.Ž Created in 1893, the pledge bears the name of Florence Nightingale, an English war nurse and social reformer whose advocacy for nursing education, ethics, and hygiene caused her to become the founder of modern nursing.Ž Each graduating ADN class chooses an exceptional mentor to receive the Golden DUCK AwardŽ for helping them Develop Understanding, Compassion, and Knowledge.Ž The 2018 class presented its award to nursing instructor Todd Schoen for his guidance, kindness, and encouragement.

Wayne Dyer, author of The Power of Intention, says: Youll see it, when you believe it.Ž A Yoga guru re-emphasized this thought adding: Concentration and focus are keys to manifestation.Ž What does this have to do with tightening and toning sagging facial muscles? We may stare at our high school or college picture when in the prime of our youth. Visualization will not bring back that past physical manifestation except in our perception and that is wonderful! We are who we are at the present; the past is dead, therefore, lets happily practice what we can manifest in the present with fortitude and concentration. What is facial Yoga? According to Dr. Deepali Bharadwaj of the Skin and Hair Clinic, giving oxygen to the facial muscles and doing Yoga for these muscles, as it does in other muscles of the body, makes them tighter, rejuvenated and fresher looking.Ž He recommends dedicating at least 10 minutes a day while driving or daydreaming, to initiate facial muscle practice. He says that working these muscles and enlivening them can slow down the aging process.Ž Lets Practice: Toning the facial muscles 1. Awaken the glowŽ in the face by deeply breathing and sending fresh oxygen into the muscles to release anxiety and tension stored in the muscles resulting in frown lines. Look in the mirror (preferably not while driving) and without making any conscious changes to see what you see.Ž Are frowns ingrained in the face? If we see them, do we react to the constant bombardment of miracle drug advertisements and rush out to buy the latest anti-aging skin product? As an alternative, lets try fish face.Ž 2. First step, smile and suck in the cheeks as strong as possible until you look like a fish.Ž Hold this pose for 10 counts, breathing and feel the check awakening. Repeat 10 times. 3.Return to normal.Ž Raise up the chin, stretch the throat as tight as possible taking up what the pioneer Florida cow huntersŽ call the dew lapŽ (the sagging skin under the cows neck and ours.) Stretch the skin into the sky. Open the eyes as wide as possible looking backwards. Hold the pose and repeat10 times. 4. Baby bird pose to tighten the neck. Take the tip of the finger under the chin and press up while you stretch a big smile and look up. Feel the great lift and tightening. Practice 10 time holding for a count of 10. 5.Kiss the ceiling. If you want to work on tightening the jaws, look up and pucker your lips. Visualize lifting and tightening the cheekbones. 6.Pucker fish: Close the mouth and blow up each cheek one at a time. Rotate and repeat 10 times back and forth. Last suggestion, be creative and invent your own practice. Take this sheet with you along with your camera. YOGA FOR LIFENANCY DALE

The News Wire Monday, June 25, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Prince William on historic Mideast trip, praises Jordan tiesSee page 3 GAINESVILLE, Ga. „ With Gary Rameys ”edgling gunmaking business taking off in retail stores, he decided to start offering one of his handguns for sale on his website. That didnt sit well with the company he used to process payments, and they informed him they were dropping his account. Another credit card processing “rm told him the same thing: They wouldnt do business with him. The reason? His business of making “rearms violates their policies. In the wake of high-pro“le mass shootings, corporate America has been taking a stand against the “rearms industry amid a lack of action by lawmakers on gun control. Payment processing “rms are limiting transactions, Bank of America stopped providing “nancing to companies that make AR-style guns, and retailers like Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods imposed age restrictions on gun purchases. The moves are lauded by gun-safety advocates but criticized by the gun industry that views them as a backhanded way of undermining the Second Amendment. Gun industry leaders see the backlash as a real threat to their industry and are coming to the conclusion that they need additional protections in Congress to prevent “nancial retaliation from banks. If a few banks say No, were not going to give loans to gun dealers or gun manufacturers, all of a sudden the industry is threatened and the Second Amendment doesnt mean much if there are no guns around,Ž said Michael Hammond, legal counsel for Gun Owners of America. If you cant make guns, if you cant sell guns, the Second Amendment doesnt mean much.Ž The issue has already gotten the attention of the Republican who is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho sent letters criticizing Bank of America and Citigroup, which decided to restrict sales of “rearms by its business customers, over their new gun rules in the wake of the Florida high school shooting in February. We should all be concerned if banks like yours seek to replace legislators and policy makers and attempt to manage social Corporate America increasingly avoids gun-industry businessBy LISA MARIE PANEASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK „ The U.S. Supreme Courts decision on online sales tax is viewed as a victory for states, but those with aggressive collection policies, such as New York and California, could be challenged by online retailers. By overturning a ruling that had made much of the internet a tax-free zone, the court delivered a victory to South Dakota and effectively blessed its model of collecting sales tax from online retailers. Justice Anthony Kennedy defended the states measures as preventing discrimination against or undue burdens upon interstate commerce.Ž South Dakota taxes most products at a single rate, exempts small sellers and doesnt allow retroactive collection. New York and Californias rules are more complex, and those states have sought to increase sales tax collection by using broader de“nitions of what it means to do business within their borders. Both states already require retailers to collect tax if they have digital ties to the states. New York and California would likely have to make some pretty big changes,Ž said John Buhl of the Tax Foundation. South Dakota has a uniquely simple law since it generally taxes all consumer purchases instead of carving out a bunch of exceptions, and online sellers can remit their taxes to the state instead of each and every locality.Ž The decision reverses a 26-year-old standard that allowed states to levy sales taxes on e-commerce sales only if the sellers had physical locations in the state. Among the biggest winners are small or less populous states where retailers are not as likely to States may struggle to deal with Supreme Court decision on online sales taxBy LAURA DAVISON and L YNNLEY BROWNINGBLOOMBERG NEWSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump on Sunday compared people entering the U.S. from Mexico to invaders and said they should be immediately sent back without appearing before a judge. The American Civil Liberties Union said in response that such a step would be illegal and violate the Constitution that Trump swore to uphold. We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country,Ž the president said on Twitter as he was being driven to his private golf club in Northern Virginia. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order.Ž Most children come without parents ... Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years!Ž he continued. Immigration must be based on merit „ we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!Ž What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional,Ž said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLUs Immigrants Rights Project. Any of“cial who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally.Ž Trump has been criticizing immigration judges for weeks, both exaggerating the number currently hearing cases and saying that hiring more „ as some members of Congress have proposed „ would be unnecessary. Trump made his anti-illegal immigration stance a centerpiece of his presidential campaign and he has pushed for strict policies since taking BRUSSELS „ The leaders of 16 countries survived the frank talkŽ of an emergency meeting on immigration and emerged with a veneer of common purpose Sunday as the European Union enters a potentially vital week for its unity. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the meeting produced a lot of goodwillŽ to resolve differences over how to manage the refugees and economic migrants who are willing to risk their lives to reach Europe. The leaders of several more countries joined Italy and France in endorsing the idea of setting up centers in Africa to screen potential asylum-seekers for eligibility before they set out for another continent. The talks were frank and open,Ž but we dont have any concrete consequences or conclusions,Ž Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said. The prevailing honesty and benevolence on display Sunday barely lower the stakes for a full EU summit opening Thursday. Four member countries in eastern Europe refused to take part in the meeting because of demands that they take in more asylum-seekers to ease the burden elsewhere. New Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte presented a plan that argues existing EU asylum rules are obsolete and paradoxical.Ž The current rules effectively mean migrants only can apply for asylum Trump decries invaders entering US from MexicoEU papers over differences after frank migration talksBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSBy RAF CASERT and LORNE COOKASSOCIATED PRESS MIGRATION | 4 TRUMP | 4 GUN | 4 TAX | 4 In this April 25 photo, the owners and employees of Honor Defense, a gunmaker in Gainesville, Ga., pose in the companys lobby.

(AP) „ Wind-driven wild“res destroyed buildings and threatened hundreds of others Sunday as they raced across dry brush in rural Northern California. The Pawnee Fire that broke out Saturday near the community of Clearlake Oaks has destroyed 12 buildings and threatened an additional 600 as it burned out of control across about 2.5 square miles. Authorities ordered people to evacuate all homes in the Spring Valley area, where about 3,000 people live. What were stressing is that people, when they get the evacuation order, they heed it immediately and get out and stay out until it is safe to return,Ž state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Battalion Chief Jonathan Cox said. This is one of four large “res burning in Northern California. Its a good reminder that “re season is upon us.Ž Erratic wind and heat gripping a swath of California from San Jose to the Oregon border drove the ”ames, which were north of the wine country region where devastating wild“res killed 44 people and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses last October. Farther north, a “re spanning about three-quarters of a mile in Tehama County destroyed multiple residential and commercial buildings,Ž Cal Fire said. But “re“ghters appeared to be making good progress „ it was nearly halfway contained and some evacuees were allowed to return home, authorities said. The largest of the “res, a second one in Tehama County, consumed 5.5 square miles, but no buildings were reported burned. Some homes were threatened and some had been evacuated, Cox said, although he did not have speci“c numbers. It was partially contained. A smaller “re in neighboring Shasta County was three-quarters contained and had damaged no structures. The cause of each blaze was under investigation Sunday. No one was reported hurt. More than 230 “re“ghters using helicopters, bulldozers and other equipment were battling the Pawnee Fire in a rugged area that made it dif“cult to get equipment up close. Its kind of the worst possible combination,Ž Cox said.

The Sun /Monday, June 25, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 AMMAN, Jordan „ Britains Prince William on Sunday praised historic ties and friendshipŽ with Jordan and the kingdoms commitment to Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as he began a historic “ve-day tour that also includes Israel and the Palestinian territories. Though billed as non-political, its a high-pro“le visit for William, 36, second in line to the throne. He is meeting with young scientists, refugees and political leaders in a tumultuous region Britain controlled between the two world wars. In Jordan, the prince was hosted by Crown Prince Hussein, 23, a member of the Hashemite dynasty Britain helped install in then-Transjordan almost a century ago. The pair capped the day Sunday by watching Englands World Cup match against Panama which the heir to the Jordanian throne had recorded earlier, Press Association said. William is president of Britains Football Association and an avid supporter of the Aston Villa football club. After Williams arrival Sunday afternoon, the two princes visited a technology lab for digital manufacturing, supported by the Crown Prince Foundation. Students from the Hussein Technical University presented some of their projects, including a multi-axis robotic arm and a paint robot. William was given a wooden shield decorated with the crest of Aston Villa. At a reception later Sunday marking the birthday of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, he praised Jordans resilience as it absorbed waves of refugees over the decades. The way in which you opened your doors to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, not to mention your longstanding commitments to Palestinian refugees, is remarkable,Ž he said. He said his wife Kate is very sorryŽ that she was not able to join him on the trip so soon after the April birth of their son, Louis. He noted that she had spent almost three years as a child in Jordan, when her father worked in Amman for British Airways. William said that her family remembers very fondlyŽ the stay in Jordan, adding that the positive experience is not unique. The interchange between our two countries is real and its deep,Ž he said. Work, study, tourism and family links. Our historic ties and friendship are played out in the lives of thousands of people who consider both countries home.Ž In two days in the kingdom, the prince will also tour a vocational training college with links to Britains Middlesex University, meet Syrian refugee children and tour the Roman ruins of the Jerash archaeological site. On Monday evening, the prince leaves for Jerusalem for the “rst-ever of“cial visit by a member of the royal family to Israel and the Palestinian territories. Hell meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Ramallah at a time of widening rifts between the two sides. The Israeli-Palestinian con”ict typically looms large, even during largely ceremonious visits, and William will have to maneuver carefully to avoid missteps. Last week, an Israeli Cabinet minister complained about the royal itinerarys reference to Jerusalem as part of the Occupied Palestinian Territories,Ž calling it a distortion of reality. Israel captured east Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it in a move not internationally recognized. Israel considers the eastern sector, home to sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims, as an inseparable part of its capital. Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state they hope will also include the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Hanan Ashrawi, a senior of“cial of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said she welcomes Williams visit to the West Bank as a chance to see Palestinian reality under Israeli occupation “rst hand. This visit is the “rst of its kind and represents an opportunity to enhance relations between Prince William and the Palestinian people on all the levels,Ž she said. William is visiting a region where three decades of British rule between the two world wars helped establish some of the fault lines of todays Israeli-Palestinian con”ict. Britains withdrawal from the region after World War II led to the eventual establishment of Israel and Jordan. Jordans ruling Hashemite dynasty has strong ties to Britain. The second marriage of the late King Hussein was to a British citizen, Antoinette Gardiner, who took the title Princess Muna and is the mother of the current monarch, King Abdullah II. Hussein, Abdullah and Crown Prince Hussein all attended Sandhurst, the British military academy, as did William.Prince William on historic Mideast trip, praises Jordan tiesBy KARIN LAUBASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOJordanian Crown Prince Hussein, right, receives Britains Prince William after his arrival at Marka Airport in Amman, Jordan, on Sunday.

BEIRUT „ Syrian government forces advanced deeper into the southern province of Daraa Sunday under the cover of airstrikes, entering new villages amid reports that the U.S. has told rebels not to expect an American intervention to defend them from the armys offensive. Syrian government forces have been on the offensive in eastern parts of Daraa province for the past “ve days in an operation that aims to reach a main border crossing point with Jordan. The push comes two months after government forces regained control of eastern rebel-held eastern suburbs of the capital Damascus that freed thousands of government soldiers for the new battle in Daraa province. Opposition activists have been reporting for days that President Bashar Assads government has sent some of its elite units to the south including the Republican Guards and the Tiger force that is commanded by Brig. General Suheil al-Hassan who is widely known as Nimr, Arabic for tiger. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Daraa-based opposition activist Osama Hourani said that the U.S. has informed rebel groups in southern Syria that Washington will not intervene in the operations to defend them against the government offensive that is ongoing under the cover of Russian airstrikes. Two U.S. of“cials discounted the claim. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. Denying the rebels support would be a reversal from earlier pronouncements. The U.S. warned last month it would take “rm and appropriate measuresŽ to protect a cease-“re in southern Syria if government forces move against rebels there. The region has also been a source of regional tensions between Iran and Israel in recent months. It is clear that since yesterday the Russians and the (Syrian) regime have been given the green light to regain control of Houran,Ž Hourani said referring to the region that includes Daraa, the nearby region of Quneitra and parts of Sweida province. The proof is that after the rebels received the (American) message Russian warplanes joined the battle.Ž The United States, Russia, and Jordan agreed last year to include Daraa in a de-escalation zoneŽ and freeze the lines of con”ict there. But the area has been tense following a series of recent Israeli strikes on Syrian and Iranian forces. Iran is a close ally of Assad, and its advisers are embedded with his troops. Syrian state news agency SANA said Sunday that troops made territorial gains in al-Lujat and other areas including the village of Jadal on the eastern edge of Daraa province. Russias Defense Ministry said some rebels have voluntarily joined forces with Syrian government forces adding that Syrian troops repelled an attack by al-Qaida-linked “ghters in Daraa. State news agency SANA said that rebels shelled the southern government-held city of Sweida wounding three people. The Observatory said government forces reached the rebel-stronghold of Busra alHarir where “ghting is ongoing inside the town. In an interview aired Sunday, Assad said Syria has not possessed chemical weapons since it got rid of them “ve years ago and that allegations of their use are a pretext for invasion by other countries. Assads comments came in an interview with Russias state-controlled NTV television channel. We fully eliminated chemical weapons. We havent had them in Syria since 2013,Ž Assad said in the interview. Syria has been charged repeatedly with using chemical weapons in its civil war, most recently in April in the town of Douma. The United States, France and the United Kingdom launched air strikes in retaliation. Americans constantly lie and attack immediately,Ž Assad said in the interview. Assad said reconstructing Syria after the devastation wrought by the war could cost $400 billion, but said we have enough means to restore our country, we are sure about thatŽ and that funds could be sought from the Syrian diaspora.Activists: US tells rebels in Syria not to expect supportBy BASSEM MROUEASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN „ Some 25 Jews and Muslims rode tandem bicycles through the German capital on Sunday in a protest against growing anti-Semitism and attacks on Muslims in the country. Some were rabbis and imams, others included women in headscarves and Jewish community members donning skullcaps from Berlin and beyond who shared the bikes on a tour through the city. Rabbi Elias Dray, one of the organizers of the ride that started at Berlins Holocaust memorial, said the interfaith tour was intended to boost contacts between Jews and Muslims and other Germans. Theres often prejudice in places where theres little contact,Ž said Dray, who works as a community rabbi in the Bavarian town of Amberg. Anywhere its a big gain to get to know Judaism and Islam.Ž He rode a tandem together with Berlin Imam Ender Cetin. They and others wore white vests with the words: Jews and Muslims for respect and tolerance.Ž In addition to the 25 interfaith-bikers, dozens of people joined the bicycle tour through Berlins downtown in a show of solidarity. Anti-Semitism has been on the rise in Germany lately and while attacks on Muslims have increased. The rising tensions come as Germany grapples with an in”ux of more than 1 million mostly Muslim migrants, along with the rise of a nationalist party, the Alternative for Germany, which was elected to Parliament last year for the “rst time. Its leaders are known for their openly anti-Muslim stance, while anti-Semitism has also featured in their statements, but less often. To further complicate things, some of the newly arrived Muslim migrants have added a new strain of anti-Semitism by holding Jews responsible for the Israeli-Palestinian con”ict. Reports of bullying of Jewish children by Muslim immigrant kids in schools across the country have scared many Jews, while Muslim women among others often report slurs and discrimination against them for wearing headscarves. Despite these tensions, Imam Cetin said, the majority of Muslims and Jews want to live peacefully together.Ž It must become a natural thing that we live together in this city and, that we can be able to express our religion openly,Ž Cetin added.Jews, Muslims in Berlin team up on bike rides against hatredBy KIRSTEN GRIESHABERASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOA Muslim and a Jewish man ride on a tandem together during a bicycle tandem tour of Jews and Muslims against anti-Semitism and hatred of Muslims in Berlin, Sunday, June 24.

Residents in the capital, Riyadh, reported on social media Sunday evening hearing the sound of loud explosions overhead. The state-run al-Ekhbariya says no casualties were immediately reported. Yemens Iranian-backed Houthi rebels have “red more than 100 missiles at Saudi Arabia in the past three years as the kingdom wages devastating airstrikes against the group.

Nigerias government did not announce a death toll. But the independent Channels Television cited a Plateau State police | HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDultra-Orthodox travelers who refused to sit next to women. In 2016, a similar case of discrimination was “led against the airline by a female passenger. Israels Supreme Court ruled that asking a passenger to move their seat based on gender is a form of discrimination. The most recent incident occurred on a New York to Tel Aviv ”ight last week. In a statement Sunday, El Al said discriminating against airline passengers is forbiddenŽ and that it does its utmost to serve a wide array of populations and travelers.Ž spokesman, Mathias Tyopev, as saying 86 people had been killed, with at least 50 houses destroyed, in violence that appeared to have started overnight. Deadly clashes between herders and farmers in central Nigeria are a growing security concern in Africas most populous country, which also faces the threat of the Boko Haram extremist group in the northeast. The extremist threat has been cited as one cause of the growing tensions in central Nigeria as herders „ also feeling the effects of climate change „ are forced south into more populated farming communities in search of safe grazing. While few details emerged immediately of the latest killings, Nigerians for hours Sunday on social media shared a growing sense that something awful had occurred. Earlier in the day the Plateau State governor, Simon Bako Lalong, announced a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew after saying had woken up to the shocking newsŽ of the attacks. In a series of message posted on Twitter he gave few details about this horrible situation.ŽWORLD NEWS

The sci-fi weapon was the top-selling item at the Hollywood Legends auction. The blaster was part of a collection from the U.S. art director on the film, James L. Schoppe.

Conte said his 10-point proposal would be a paradigm shiftŽ in how Europe approaches migration and that he was decidedly satis“edŽ with the outcome of Sundays meeting. We have given the right direction for the debate underway. Well see each other Thursday,Ž he said. Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron held out little hope they would be able to gather all 28 nations behind a single immigration plan at the upcoming summit. Merkel, who is battling a domestic political crisis with her coalition partners over migration, said she was seeking bilateral and trilateralŽ deals to cope with short-term migration pressures. EU nations, she said, have to see how can we help each other without always having to wait for all 28, but by thinking whats important to whom.Ž The idea of pre-screening Europe-bound asylum-seekers in North Africa gained support from several leaders amid the escalating tensions that threaten to undermine EU cohesion. Paradoxically, the EUs immigration policies are receiving renewed attention as the number of newcomers reaching Europe has dropped signi“cantly. The U.N.s refugee agency forecasts that around 80,000 people will arrive to Europe by sea in 2018 if current trends continue „ but the EUs political turmoil over the topic has soared. Anti-migrant parties „ and governments in Hungary and Italy „ have been fomenting public fears of foreigners and have won support doing so. Some are trying to use the situation in Europe to create political tension and to play with fear,Ž French President Emmanuel Macron said. We must not give in. When someone has the right to protection and asylum, we should grant it.Ž A failure to “nd agreement could threaten the EUs border-free travel area, one of the biggest accomplishments of the blocs 60-year history. Despite the different perspectives, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said, progress is possible on Thursday.Ž Encouraged by a deal with Turkey that has slashed the number of people arriving from there by 97 percent since 2015, the EU appeared ready to greenlight plans to set up screening centers in Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Niger and Tunisia. Plans to set up migrant reception centers in Albania are also under discussion. Macron said the method that we are going to adoptŽ would involve working together vis-avis the countries of transit and origin outside the European Union.Ž He mentioned Libya „ the main jumping off point for countries bound for Europe „ other African countries and the Balkans. Noting that migrant arrivals have dropped signi“cantly, Macron said: its a political crisis that Europe and the European Union is mostly living today.Ž Meanwhile, Spains Sanchez urged his EU partners to help Spain deal with a growing number of arrivals across the Mediterranean Sea. The UNHCR says around 40,000 people have arrived in Europe by sea so far this year, some 16,000 in Italy, 12,000 in Greece and 12,000 in Spain. As with everything linked to migration in Europe, even the meeting in Brussels did not please everybody. Four eastern EU countries „ the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia „ refused to attend and reject taking in migrants in general.MIGRATIONFROM PAGE 1 of“ce. He said during a campaign appearance Saturday in Las Vegas that being for strong borders, no crimeŽ is a winning issue for Republicans to run on in Novembers congressional elections.

When Ramey noticed that neither Stripe nor Intuit would process payments through his site, he submitted a complaint with Georgias attorney generals of“ce, counting on help from a state law that prohibits discrimination by “nancial service “rms against the gun industry. But the state rejected it, saying that credit card processing is not considered a “nancial service under state law. He views the credit card issue as companies infusing politics into business.Ž Were just a small company trying to survive here,Ž Ramey said. Its hard enough competing with Smith & Wesson, Ruger and Sig Sauer.Ž The “nancial industry actions came amid a broader pushback by corporate America in the aftermath of the Florida shooting. Delta and United Airlines stopped offering discounted fares to NRA members, as did the Hertz, Alamo and National rental car companies. First National Bank of Omaha, one of the nations largest privately held banks, decided not to renew a co-branded Visa credit card with the NRA. Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods both decided they would no longer sell assault weaponsŽ or “rearms to people under age 21. REI, an outdoor-gear shop that doesnt sell “rearms, joined in and decided it would stop selling such items as ski goggles, water bottles and bike helmets made by companies whose parent “rm, Vista Outdoor, manufactures ammunition and AR-style long guns. Theres been electionyear response from some lawmakers, notably in Georgia where Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who is running for governor, led a move in the Legislature to kill a tax break on jet fuel to punish Atlantabased Delta over its NRA actions. The move cost the airline an estimated $40 million. Gun-control advocates have applauded the efforts, saying it demonstrates responsible leadership at a time of paralysis in government. Experts say its a sign that the business world views wading into the gun debate as not at all risky „ and, in fact, potentially bene“cial to their brand. Companies by and large avoid these issues like the plague and they only get involved „ whether theyre credit card companies or airlines „ when they feel like doing nothing is as bad as doing something and they feel completely stuck,Ž said Timothy D. Lytton, professor at Georgia State Universitys College of Law and author of Suing the Gun Industry: A Battle at the Crossroads of Gun Control and Mass Torts.Ž The gun industry acknowledges that theres nothing requiring companies from doing business with gun manufacturers or dealers. Monthly reports from the federal government show background checks to purchase a “rearm are up over last year so far, so the early actions apparently have not put a dent in sales. Still, the industry believes it needs stronger laws against “nancial retaliation in the future. We may have to seek legislation to make sure it cant be done and that you cant discriminate against individuals from lawful exercise of a constitutional right,Ž said Larry Keane, senior vice president and legal counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents gunmakers. Imagine if banks were to say you cant purchase books or certain books arent acceptable. That would be problematic and I dont think anyone would stand for that kind of activity by the banking industry.ŽGUNFROM PAGE 1have stores or employees. While states like New York may be emboldened to test the bounds of whats now possible, retailers are likely to rein in those states in through legal action. The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance didnt respond to a request for comment. This decision is not the end of the days for this case,Ž said Jamie Yesnowitz, a National Tax Of“ce leader at accounting “rm Grant Thornton. Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., said he supported the rulings creation of a level playing “eld between online sellers and physical retailers. But he said hes concerned that it will create a complex web of online sales rules that could prompt some businesses to move. When you are dealing with the virtual cloud, it gets complicated,Ž Reed said. Online retailers will have to deal with a hodgepodge system until Congress enacts a federal standard, which is unlikely this year given the midterm elections in November. Amazon.com and Overstock.com are among the companies that say they support a nationwide law that would relieve retailers from dealing with a patchwork of state tax laws. Lawmakers have tried unsuccessfully to pass online sales tax legislation for years, with the most recent attempt failing after several conservatives called the provision a tax increase on online shoppers. Some Democrats also opposed the measure. Broader taxing power will let state and local governments collect an extra $8 billion to $23 billion a year, according to various estimates. Thirty-one of the 45 states that collect sales taxes have allowing them to expand their tax collection beyond the physical-presence standard vacated in the Supreme Court ruling, according to an analysis from the Tax Foundation. The 16 states with laws similar to South Dakotas, including Indiana and Maine, are less likely to be challenged. States that dont have laws governing online sales tax are likely to move quickly to follow South Dakotas approach, including its threshold of $100,000 in sales, said Gary Botwinick, a lawyer at Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito and Frost in New Jersey. The South Dakota model is a safe bet for states, so its reasonable for them to start thereŽ said Max Behlke, who directs budget and tax issues at the National Conference of State Legislatures. The ruling means some states can expand their tax collection systems. Another question for states to consider will be whether to push to collect tax on previous transactions. Kennedy didnt directly weigh in on retroactivity, but he said the issue wasnt a reason to keep the physical-presence rule. He said the court had other legal tools to ensure that sales taxes dont become an undue burdenŽ on small businesses and startups. Tax lawyers including Richard Jones, a tax partner at Sullivan and Worcester in Boston, said they interpreted the decision as meaning sales tax could be applied retroactively „ perhaps on sales as far back as 10 years. But taxpayers could raise challenges, including the argument that collecting sales tax for previous sales could subject the seller to double taxation if the customer had already paid sales tax. Congress could also step in and block retroactivity, Jones said. The Supreme Court decision will certainly change how states look at these laws but we may see states trying to see if their versions could survive even if they are less simpli“ed and direct than South Dakotas law,Ž Joseph BishopHenchman, an executive vice president at the Tax Foundation, said in a blog post. This ruling is not a blank check for states.ŽTAXFROM PAGE 1 DOON, Iowa (AP) „ Crews are working to contain and clean up crude that spilled when an oil train derailed in northwestern Iowa.

The Sun /Monday, June 25, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband had pacemaker surgery in December following a diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Three weeks later, he developed edema in his lower legs. He was treated by his doctor with a diuretic. At his six-week pacemaker checkup, we brought it up to the cardiac physician assistant that the swelling was still there and that the medication had not been eective. At that time, he had only one more week on the medication. She told him to stay the course and not change anything. He was not on any other medications. Three days later, he passed away from ventricular tachycardia. Could the swelling have been an indication that things besides the myopathy were going on with him? I feel as if not enough attention was given to this symptom. He had eliminated salt from his diet. „ A.K. ANSWER: I am very sorry to hear about your husband. There is no way to be sure about what happened. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a relatively common (1 in 500 people) genetic disease of heart muscle that causes changes in the shape of the heart. This puts people at risk for symptoms, especially chest pain, heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. Edema (swelling) of the lower legs can be a sign of heart failure, especially when combined with shortness of breath. However, many people with perfectly normal hearts can develop a bit of swelling after a medical procedure, often because they get more salt and water than they are used to during the procedure. I can't tell whether his swelling might have been a red ag that should have been pursued more aggressively. One other thought is that some diuretics can deplete the body of potassium and magnesium, predisposing a person to rhythm problems. Ventricular tachycardia is a dangerous rhythm of the heart that needs to be treated immediately. Having hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a clear risk for developing ventricular tachycardia, and some people at very high risk (especially those who have had an abnormal rhythm or fainting) are advised to get an automated implantable cardioverter-debrillator. In hindsight, your husband should have had one of those (they make AICDs with pacemaker function now), but I don't see any way his doctor should have known from the information you gave. READERS: The booklet on abnormal heart rhythms explains atrial brillation and the more common heart rhythm disturbances in greater detail.

Can. with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: My brother has ulcerative colitis that appears to be controlled by medicine. My sister-in-law thinks diatomaceous earth might be of value. Are there any studies on that „ pro or con? „ J.S. ANSWER: Diatomaceous earth is a sedimentary rock consisting of fossilized remains of diatoms, small marine animals. There are no studies that show safety or eectiveness of taking diatomaceous earth for any condition. There's no plausible mechanism I can think of why it would be useful for ulcerative colitis. Therefore, I recommend strongly against it.DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for 42 years. For the most part, we have had a good marriage. We raised two children, are helping to raise three grandchildren and still enjoy each other's company. For years I have anticipated being free to travel the country and see things I didn't have the time to see when I was employed. The problem is, I like the idea of seeing the country via road trip. My wife says she's a "homebody" and doesn't want to be "stuck in the car" for a week. How can I be a good husband and spend time with my wife, and not feel cheated out of something I have wanted to do for so long? „ Headed For The Open Road DEAR HEADED: I can't help thinking about how many widows would give anything to share an adventure like that with their husband. I also don't think leaving one's spouse for a week qualies as desertion. Many husbands and wives do it to conduct their business. Perhaps if you return from one of your excursions with tales of how beautiful the trip was, it will pique her interest. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for almost 20 years. I could go on and on about how caring and considerate he is. However, when it comes to being intimate, I'm just not interested. I have known him for so long and know him so well that, for me, the "spark" is extinguished. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. „ Extinguished Sparks DEAR EXTINGUISHED: My suggestion would be to have a frank talk with your OB/GYN about this, and ask for a referral to an endocrinologist „ a doctor who specializes in hormones. If, after a checkup, your hormone balances are what they should be, some sessions with a psychologist for you „ and a sex therapist for both of you „ might relight the spark that has zzled. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about the responses we got from a letter written by Wallace T. stating his belief that women don't dress up anymore or take care of themselves. The reaction was overwhelming. Here are some of the voices of our readers. „ Heloise "It's not just women who dress casually in this country.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, June 25, 2018 ENTERTAINMENT TODAYNEW YORK „ The dinosaurs still rule the box of“ce. Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomŽ surpassed expectations to open with $150 million in ticket sales in U.S. and Canada theaters over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. While that total didnt approach the record-breaking $208.8 million debut of 2015s Jurassic World,Ž it proved the 25-year-old franchise still roars loudly among moviegoers. It also gave Hollywood its “rst back-to-back $100 million-plus openings in a non-holiday period. After opening with $182.7 million last week, Pixars acclaimed sequel Incredibles 2Ž slid 56 percent in its second week, with an $80.9 million haul. The combined “repower of Fallen KingdomŽ and Incredibles 2Ž fueled $280 million in total ticket sales, making it Hollywoods fourthbiggest overall weekend ever, not accounting for in”ation. Business was roughly double what it was the same June weekend last year, according to comScore. The normal course of box of“ce is that the two “lms would cannibalize each others box of“ce in some way,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. This weekend proves that if you have two incredibly appealing movies in the marketplace at the same time, the marketplace will expand. The year-to-date box of“ce jumped 2.5 percent in one weekend, from 6 percent to 8.5 percent.Ž Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomŽ has already tallied hundreds of millions in overseas ticket sales over the past two weeks. Its worldwide total already stands at $711.5 million. The “lm, starring Chris Pratt and Dallas Bryce Howard, moves the action away from an isolated tropical island. In Fallen Kingdom,Ž directed by J.A. Bayona, the dinosaurs are again threatened with extinction because of a soon-to-explode volcano. But they are trapped by a band of mercenaries, a plot intended to mirror real-life animal poaching. Like 2015s Jurassic World,Ž Fallen KingdomŽ was able to shrug off mediocre reviews „ something that many other franchises have struggled to do lately. It sits at just 50 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes but received an A-minus CinemaScore from audiences. Universal Pictures, which is planning a third Jurassic WorldŽ “lm, heavily promoted the $170 million production. Drawing audiences equally young and old, male and female, and from a diverse array of ethnicities, Fallen KingdomŽ played like a classic crowd-pleaser. Were seeing exit polls that indicate all quadrants came out to see this movie,Ž said Jim Orr, Universals distribution chief. The majority of the audience was under 25. Obviously, were playing very broadly, and to families overall, and so thus the result at the very high end of our expectations.Ž The domestic opening is the second best for the 106-year-old Universal. It only follows Jurassic World.Ž After notching the biggest opening ever for an animated release last weekend, Brad Birds Incredibles 2Ž held on strongly considering the family-“lm competition. Its global gross is now up to $485 million, including a $21.2 million debut in China, a Pixar best. The female-fronted heist “lm Oceans 8,Ž starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, crossed $100 million domestically, with $11.7 million in its third week. Thanks to drive-in double-features with Incredibles 2,Ž Ava DuVernays A Wrinkle in TimeŽ also cleared the $100 million milestone, a “rst for a black female director. The Fred Rogers documentary Wont You Be My NeighborŽ became the summers second documentary to crack the top 10. Following the Ruth Bader Ginsberg documentary RBG,Ž Morgan Nevilles hit documentary on the man behind Mister Rogers NeighborhoodŽ grossed $1.9 million on 348 screens. Sony Pictures Classics Boundaries,Ž a father-daughter road trip starring Vera Farmiga and Christopher Plummer, made a muted debut with $29,000 from “ve theaters. Peter Fonda, who plays a supporting role in the “lm, on Wednesday apologized for a tweet in which he suggested 12-year-old Barron Trump, son of President Donald Trump, should be ripped from his mothers arms and put in a cage with pedophilesŽ as payback for the policy of separating children from their parents at the Mexican border. Donald Trump Jr. criticized Sony Pictures Classics for releasing the “lm. In response, the specialty distributor condemned Fondas words as abhorrent and recklessŽ but said it would go ahead with the “lms planned limited release.

An RBI single that snapped an 0-for-12 and a second hit two winnings later in Fridays game restored some of the rookies confidence that had been waning despite the extra work he had been doing in the batting cage. I needed a game like that, he said. And then Adames built on it Saturday, delivering an RBI single in the second and a home run in the seventh, and on an 0-and-2 pitch to the opposite field. In two days, he hiked his average from .182 to .231. It was good to see him carry over, manager Kevin Cash said. He was starting to shake a little bit as far as the confidence.

PETERSBURG „ Rookie Jake Bauers led off the 12th inning with a home run and the Tampa Bay Rays completed a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees with a 7-6 victory Sunday. The Yankees, with the best record in the majors, also lost catcher Gary Sanchez when he appeared to injure his groin trying to beat out a double-play grounder in the 10th. Giancarlo Stanton doubled twice and homered while going 5 for 5 for New York. The Yankees had been the only team in the majors that hadnt lost three in a row this year „ this was the latest into any season they had gone without losing three straight since August 1954. Bauers, who tripled earlier, homered on the first pitch from Chasen Shreve (2-2). Five previous New York relievers held Tampa Bay hitless for eight innings. Brett Gardner opened the 12th with a bunt single that saw Rays reliever Jonny Venters strain his right hamstring and depart the game. Ryan Yarbrough (7-3) replaced Venters and worked out of a first-and-third jam by getting a two-out grounder from Austin Romine, who replaced Sanchez. Stanton hit a solo homer in the eighth off Vidal Nuno that made it 6-all. He reached on an infield single in the 10th before Sanchez hurt himself. Nuno allowed one run over four innings. Yankees pinch hitter Clint Frazier lofted a towering fly in the ninth that struck a speaker hanging from an overhead catwalk and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, as allowed by the ground rules at Tropicana Field, caught the carom for an out in shallow left.

But Cash suggested another scenario to get Archer back earlier if he is healthy but not built up to 100 pitches, working just the first inning or two, as the Rays have been doing with RHP Ryne Stanek. Maybe well do an opener for Arch to get some work for him if hes short, Cash said. Before any plan can be set, Archer, who last pitched June 2, has to throw another bullpen session Monday and likely a simulated game by the end of the week. Its still going to take a little bit of time, Archer said. It really depends where my feel is as far as my pitches go and how my body feels.More medical: Chirinos, Faria The Rays lost another starting pitching option as RHP Yonny Chirinos went back on the DL at Triple-A Durham with a shoulder impingement.

Wendle had been working the last few days with coach Rocco Baldelli and Gold Glove CF Kevin Kiermaier and he felt excited and ready for the challenge. He really wasnt tested, catching the only fly ball hit to him. Cash said he will be back out there soon, and INF Daniel Robertson will get an similar opportunity.MiscellanyThe Rays drew 27,252 Friday and 29,831 Saturday, their two largest crowd since opening day.

RAYSFrom Page 1By ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. „ Oregon State has won 109 of 127 baseball games over two seasons with mostly the same cast of players. The Beavers see winning a national championship as the only way to validate their body of work. Ultimately,Ž Beavers coach Pat Casey said Sunday, nobody cares how many games you win unless you win the last one.Ž Standing between Oregon State (53-11-1) and the title is Arkansas (47-19) in the best-ofthree College World Series finals starting Monday night. The Beavers lost their CWS opener and staved off elimination four times to reach the finals for the first time since 2007, when they won the second of two straight championships. The Razorbacks swept through their bracket in three games, knocking off defending champion and No. 1 overall seed Florida to make the finals for the first time in the best-ofthree era. Arkansas was runner-up in 1979. Oregon State showed up in Omaha last year as the No. 1 seed and with a 54-4 record, the highest winning percentage (.931) of any team entering the CWS since Texas came in 57-4 (.934) in 1982. The Beavers won their first two games, then lost two straight to LSU in a shocking ending to the season. The Beavers have been on a redemption tour in 2018 with an everyday lineup including all but one player from last year and a pitching staff that returned two weekend starters. Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn is in awe of what the Pac-12s Beavers have accomplished. To win that many ballgames, its almost amazing to me, because I how hard it is to win,Ž he said. We talk about it all the time. How are they doing it? Its not like theyre in Houston where they can just run down the street and grab players. Theyre going all over the place and theyre doing it with kids from their region.Ž The Razorbacks, previously in Omaha in 2015, have been ascending since going 26-29 and failing to make the NCAA Tournament in 2016. They lost in a regional final last year and now are in position to play for the title. Like Oregon State, Arkansas has many of its key contributors back. The Razorbacks also have two of the best freshmen in the country in third baseman Casey Martin and left fielder Heston Kjerstad, who have combined for 27 home runs. After the 2015 season when we came to Omaha, we were a little bit on our high horse and we might not have worked as hard as we needed to,Ž Carson Shaddy said. Just coming back after that and going through the worst has really put a lot of pressure on us to perform at our best, and thats what happened the last two years to try to climb back where we need to be.ŽPITCHING PLANSArkansas Blaine Knight (13-0) will start Monday, followed by Kacey Murphy (8-5) on Tuesday and Isaiah Campbell (5-6) if a game is necessary Wednesday. Casey didnt name a Game 1 starter. Ace Luke Heimlich (16-2) would be coming off four days of rest after not getting out of the third inning in either of his starts in Omaha. Heimlichs appearances at the CWS have drawn reaction on social media but little to none in the stadium, other than support from Beavers fans. Last year, he left the team before the CWS after it was revealed he had pleaded guilty to molesting a young relative when he was 15. The university allowed him to return to the team this year. He served two years of probation and went through a treatment program but denied wrongdoing in recent interviews with Sports Illustrated and The New York Times.TWO-OUT TENACITYOregon State is batting .449 (35 of 78) with two outs, and 28 of its 47 RBIs have come with two outs. I would prefer that they would start that a little sooner before we get two outs,Ž Casey said. Maybe we can score a few more runs.ŽANOTHER SEC CHAMP?Arkansas could become the fifth Southeastern Conference program to win the national championship since 2009. This is my 16th year in the SEC, and the league was the deepest its been,Ž Van Horn said. You have Mississippi State this close to getting to the championship series and they came in fourth or fifth place in the Western Division. It definitely prepares you for just about anything thats coming your way.ŽCOLLEGE WORLD SERIESOregon State out to “ nish redemption tour against ArkansasAP PHOTOOregon State first baseman Zak Taylor (16) smiles after a double play against Mississippi State ended the sixth inning of the NCAA College World Series baseball elimination game in Omaha, Neb., Saturday. Staff ReportsOne night removed from a great performance by the pitching staff, the Charlotte Stone Crabs fell 7-1 against the Palm Beach Cardinals in the series finale. Benton Moss allowed four runs on eight hits over three innings of work to earn his first loss since joining the Stone Crabs. He also allowed a two-run home run to J.B. Woodman in the third inning which gave the Cardinals a 4-0 lead at the time. Palm Beach eventually took a 7-0 advantage through eight innings after J.D. Busfield allowed three runs in three innings of relief. Busfield, allowed just two hits and a walk, but did strike out five batters. Trevor Charpie tossed a pair of scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and a walk in his outing. The Stone Crabs didn't get on the scoreboard until the ninth inning when Josh Lowe reached base on a fielding error, which allowed Jake Fraley to score. Fraley and Tristan Gray each had two hits in the loss. Both of Fraley's and one of Gray's hits were a double … the only extrabase hits of the day for Charlotte. The Stone Crabs are off today before beginning a three-game series on the road against the Lakeland Flying Tigers.MILB: Cardinals 7, Stone Crabs 1Stone Crabs drop series “ nale

The Sun / Monday, June 25, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3Arousal Creams May Replace Popular Sex Pills for Men Daniel Watson Medical News Today BOSTON Š The medical community now has a safer and more effective alternative to sex pills, which they can immediately start offering to male patients. It will not require a prescription. The alternative, called Sensum+ is an amazing new sex cream that activates a sensation pathway on the penis known as TRPA1. When applied as directed, it leads to incredible arousal and much more satisfying erections. It also promotes powerful climaxes and ultimately results in signi“cant imp rovements in performance. Men can expect out standing sexual imp rovements with regular use. The penis will become hy per sensitive, making them easily aroused and excit ableŽ explains Dr. Henry Esber, the Boston based physician who introduced Sensum+ to market. And thats because Sensum+ does what no other sex pill or drug has done before Š it stimulates a special sensory pathway right below the skin, which leads to phenomenal sensation.Ž Overtime, constant exposure (especially if circumcised) leads to decreased penis sensitivity, which can cause problems with arousal and erection quality. There just isnt enough feeling to get excited.Ž Diabetes, antidepressants and normal aging also leads to desensitization, a can make the situation even worse.Ž This is what makes Sensum+ so effective and why the clinical studies and clinical use studies have been so positive.ŽMISDIAGNOSIS LEADS TO UNEEDED PRESCRIPTIONSAfter years of clinical research and testing, Dr. Esber and his team have discovered an incredible compound that triggers arousal while helping men achieve erections more easily. This compound isnt a drug. Its the active ingredient in Sensum+ And according to users, it produces sensational results. Many men report remarkable imp rovements in sexual performance and overall satisfaction. They are more sexually active than theyve been in years with the average Sensum+ user over the age of 50. Clinical studies show Sensum+ s key ingredient activates the TRPA1 sensation pathway right below the skin of the penis. According to research, many men adults and seniors who suffer sexually have lost sensation in their penis due to constant rubbing and exposure and health related issues such as diabetes, hernia surgery, use of some antidepressants, multiple sclerosis, and other type of illnesses. This desensitization often makes sex extremely challenging. Without a 100% feeling in the penis, its next to impossible to get truly aroused. Worse, modern day sex drugs have absolutely no effect on sensation and are laden with side effects. They simply stimulate an erection by enhancing blood ”ow. Its why most men are rarely satis“ed after taking them and why Sensum+ users are al ways stocking up on more and couldnt be happier. We knew the science behind Sensum+ was there, but we never expected results like were seeing. Its far exceeded our expectationsŽ said a spokesperson for the company. A STAGGERING 80% IMPROVEMENT IN SENSATIVITYResearchers have conducted several clinical studies on Sensum+ and the results from the most recent are undoubtedly the most impressive. A data analysis of three clinical sur veys of 370 men showed that an amazing 80% of Sensum+ users experienced dramatic improvements while using the cream and as a result were aroused easier and a phenomenal boost in performance. Additionally, 77.4% of men also reported much more satisfying climaxes, making sex for both them and their partners nearly 300% more satisfying. I have full feeling and sensitivity back in my penis. Everything feels better. My erections are harder, Im more easily aroused, I can “nally climax again. This stuff honestly works like magic in the bedroom. I couldnt be happier at 66!Ž raves one Sensum+ user. HOW SENSUM+ WORKSSensum+ is a new sex cream for men thats to be applied twice a day for the “rst two weeks then just once every day after. There are no harmful side effects for either the user or partner. It also does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is an organic compound known as cinnamaldehyde with a patented combination of sexually rousing extracts. Research shows that as men get older, they often lose sensitivity to the penis. Although very subtle, this desensitization can signi“cantly hinder sexual performance and lead to serious problems with becoming aroused and staying/getting hard. The cinnamaldehyde in Sensum+ is one of the only known ingredients to activate a special sensation pathway on the penis called TRPA1. Once activated, it restores tremendous sensation to the penis, stimulating arousal and powerful erections. This would explain why so many users are experiencing impressive results so quickly and why the makers of Sensum+ offer their low cots cream with an amazing guarantee. GUARANTEE DISCOUNTED SUPPLY TAKES RISK OFF CONSUMERSA large percentage of men report life changing results with Sensum+ Thats why it is now being sold with an above-industry standard guarantee. We can only make this guarantee because we are 100% certain this cream works,Ž says Esber. We want to take risk off the consumers. So besides offering massive discounts, were also offering this guarantee, so they dont have to risk a cent.Ž Heres how it works: Use the cream exactly as directed and in just one week, you must feel a signi“cant imp rovement in sexual sensations. You must be more easily aroused with harder, longer lasting erections and be having the best sex youve had in years. Otherwise, simply return the empty bottles. Then, the company will refund your money immediately.HOW TO GET SENSUM+This is the of“cial release of Sensum+ As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to any reader who calls within the next 48 hours.

He was accused of rape while at Florida State, and though he was never criminally charged, he settled a civil lawsuit with his accuser, Erica Kinsman of Zephyrhills, in December 2016. He came into the NFL with two concerns: his off-field actions and an inability to protect the ball. After three seasons, not much has changed. So what will the Bucs do now?The 2018 seasonAssuming Winstons suspension remains at three games, pursuant to him completing undisclosed requirements by the NFL, the Bucs will be glad to welcome him back for their Sept. 30 game at Chicago in Week 4. Who knows what the Bucs record will be at that point. Their first three games bring the toughest stretch of opponents on the schedule: at the Saints on Sept. 9, home against the Super Bowl champion Eagles on Sept. 16 and home against the Steelers on Monday Night Football on Sept. 24. Three defending division champions in three weeks. For those games, the Bucs likely will lean on 35-year-old veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who played well going 2-1 as a starter last season while Winston was injured. But beating the Jets and Dolphins isnt the same test as facing the Saints, Eagles and Steelers. Trying to rebound from a 0-3 or 1-2 start wont be easy for the Bucs in the NFC South, where the other three teams made the playoffs in 2017. Winston could go 7-6 or 8-5 when he returns as the starter and it still may not be enough to make the playoffs or save the jobs of coach Dirk Koetter and general manager Jason Licht. If the Glazer family, which owns the Bucs, decides to fire either Koetter or Licht, a new coach or general manager may want a clean start with a new quarterback. A lot of assistants are in contract years, so much is on the line for them, too.The contractWinston is in the final year of his rookie deal. That money is guaranteed. He will lose about $125,000 in salary from a threegame suspension. The Bucs last month picked up his fifth-year option, which is worth nearly $21 million and guaranteed only against injury. If he passes a physical in March, the team could rescind it. Theres debate on whether a suspension would allow the Bucs to void that. They would need clarification from the NFL. But assuming Winston plays well and continues to stay out of trouble, some Bucs officials dont believe the team would move away from him in 2018. But Winston has won only 18 games in three seasons. Thats not a good number. In 45 starts, he has thrown 69 touchdown passes and 44 interceptions, and has a career 87.2 passer rating. Hell need to do a better job of protecting the ball and to start winning more games. Winston could argue that since March 2016, he has made better decisions off the field. His longtime girlfriend, Breion Allen, to whom he is engaged, is expecting the couples first child in July. He started his Dream Forever Foundation to raise money for underprivileged youths.The opticsThe Glazers have always been very sensitive to their fans when making big decisions. They forced coach Greg Schiano to keep quarterback Josh Freeman when they hired him because they thought fans would jump ship if he didnt. Winston hasnt seemed to be very forthright throughout the Uber investigation. When news of the allegation and NFL investigation broke in a story on the website BuzzFeed in November, Winston said, The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her. A week later, Winstons former FSU teammate and current Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby issued a statement saying he was in the back seat with Winston and nothing happened. But Thursday, the NFL Network reported that Darby was not with Winston the entire time, which led the NFL to discount his statement. And Friday, ESPN reported that Winston also was in an Uber ride that night with Brandon Banks, a former Vanderbilt football player now serving a 15-year prison sentence for aggravated rape and sexual battery. Banks, unnamed in the case by Winston and Darby months ago, is a friend of Darbys who was training in Arizona at the time. He rode with Winston and Banks in an Uber with a female driver to a club on the night in question, Banks attorney, Mark Scruggs, told the Tampa Bay Times. Winston was in bad enough shape at the club that a second Uber was called to take him home, and he left in that car alone with another female driver, Scruggs said. The NFL knew about Banks, but he refused to speak with the league from prison. Presumably, the Bucs have known about him, too. But Winstons statement appears at best misleading, and at worst not truthful. If the Bucs believe he lied to them, how could they trust him with $20 million? Winstons actions have spoken loudly. And they have put his future with the Bucs in jeopardy.BUCSFrom Page 1youth violence through therapy and mentorship. And it very well might be gone by now if not for the effort of one unusual coalition. The Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks. The titans of Chicago sports, united with a singular purpose. Near the end of a violent 2016 in Chicago, Roseanna Ander went to a meeting. Ander, the executive director of the University of Chicago Crime Lab, goes to a lot of meetings, but this one was different. The room included White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf and his son, Michael, the president and chief operating officer of the Bulls. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts and his sister, Laura, who also is part of the Cubs ownership group, were there. Same for Bears chairman George McCaskey and Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz. It was like a very Godfather-esque moment,Ž Ander said with a grin. Concerned about a precipitous rise in violent crime „ Chicago had 762 homicides in 2016, a 64 percent increase from 485 in the previous year „ the citys most prominent sports executives had an idea, and they were looking for help. They decided that this was a very unprecedented challenge facing the city and they wanted to do something unprecedented,Ž Ander said, and that was really to try to see if putting their resources together that they might be able to do something more significant than they could each do independently.Ž It began with Jerry Reinsdorf, 82, who once lived in some of the South Side neighborhoods that have been racked by violence. He took the idea of a united effort to the rest of the owners, and they quickly signed on for what became the Chicago Sports Alliance. Then came the tricky part. It became very clear that we really didnt understand what was behind the homicides and the violence,Ž Michael Reinsdorf said. We all had ideas and theories, but we really werent as educated as we should be. We decided instead of just jumping in there and making some type of investment, lets get smarter.Ž That led the group to Ander and the Crime Lab, which was created in 2008 following the shooting death of a graduate student at the University of Chicago to study crime and develop and evaluate crime-reduction programs. While the room grabbed Anders attention, her presentation struck a chord with the group. Its just tough,Ž Michael Reinsdorf said. I have kids and we teach our kids that they can dream and they can do anything they want and they have such incredible opportunities. But the kids that were talking about trying to help in some of these communities, their dreams are totally different than the dreams of like my children. Their dreams are like, surviving. ... Their expectations are I wont live a long life.Ž Alston had a group session in May where only one of the six young men showed. It was a nice day in Chicago and graduation festivities were in full swing. The 17-year-old who made it to the session was depressed about the death of his cousin in January. He wanted to retaliate sometimes, but he said the program was keeping him on the right track. He says, Yeah, but this group, he says, since Ive been coming in February is helping me think,Ž Alston said. A buoyed Alston kept going, sitting straight up in his chair in a common room down the hall from his office on the citys South Side. You know just with the people he knows, the family hes involved with, itd be easy to go and retaliate,Ž he continued. I want you to think logical. If you go retaliate and youre 17, theres two things going to happen. You may get away with it for a little bit. But youre going to end up dead because theyre going to retaliate, or youre going to be in jail and youre 17, I want you to get to my age.Ž The Chicago Sports Alliance was unveiled in December. The teams announced a total of $1 million in one-time grants for Choose to Change, the Crime Lab and for training for embedded civilian analysts who work with the police department to develop strategies to reduce crime in the citys most violent areas. While the money provided a lift, the alliance itself might have made an even bigger statement.YOUTHFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, June 25, 2018 / The SunBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressSONOMA, Calif. „ Martin Truex Jr. won the NASCAR Cup Series race in Sonoma on Sunday, using a clever pit strategy to cruise to his second career victory on the challenging road course. Truex easily held off Kevin Harvick for his second win in three weeks and his third victory of the season in his Furniture Row Racing Toyota. The defending Cup Series champion waited to pit until the 81st lap, a full eight laps later than Harvick. Truex and his crew chief, Cole Pearn, appeared to use a bit of trickery on the decision, bluffing an earlier move to the pits and enticing Harvick into pit lane instead. The decision left fresher tires on Truexs car down the stretch and allowed him to pass Harvick for the lead around the final hairpin turn with 20 laps to go. That was all Cole,Ž Truex said. Ill do whatever he wants to do. Awesome job by him today. ... Honestly, all youre doing is begging, hoping that the caution doesnt come out and hope the engine stays together.Ž Truexs victory in his manufacturers title race was the 18th of his career. He earned his second career victory at Sonoma in 2013 for Michael Waltrip Racing, making him the only racer to win twice in the past decade at Sonoma. Cup Series leader Harvick went to the pits shortly after Truex passed him, but never got the caution that would have been necessary for him to catch up. Clint Bowyer finished third and Chase Elliott was fourth. Truex began his racing career as a kid running go-karts on road courses, and those lifelong skills are showing. After winning at Watkins Glen last year and taking Sonoma this year, his three career road course victories are second among active drivers to the four wins on non-oval tracks by Kyle Busch, who finished fifth in Sonoma.Road warrior: Martin Truex Jr. conquers Sonomas road courseAP PHOTOMartin Truex Jr. drinks wine from a goblet trophy after winning yesterday in Sonoma, Calif. AUTO RACING: NASCAR By JOSEPH WILSONAssociated PressLE CASTELLET, France „ Lewis Hamilton capitalized on a mistake by rival Sebastian Vettel to enjoy a wire-to-wire victory at the French Grand Prix on Sunday and retake the lead in the Formula One title race. Starting third behind Hamilton and Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, Vettel tried to use his faster set of tires to make a good start. But the Germans lunge on the inside of the first corner crunched his Ferrari into the back of Bottas, damaging both cars and sending them into the pits for repairs. Vettel emerged with a new front wing and the entire field to fight through, and even though he made quick work of the slower cars he had to settle for a fifth-place finish. Red Bulls Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen in his Ferrari crossed second and third to complete the podium at the Paul Ricard Circuit. Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo was fourth. Defending champion Hamilton has 145 points after eight races. Vettel, who entered the race with a one-point lead, leaves trailing by 14. While Hamilton thanked his team for its great workŽ via the radio after crossing the finish line, Vettel regretted that he had lost the race on the first lap.Ž My start was too good. Then I ended up with nowhere to go,Ž Vettel said. It was my mistake, I tried to brake early and get out of it, but I had no room and no grip, being so close to the car in front and also next to me.ŽAUTO RACING: Formula OneHamilton wins to retake lead in title race playoff in 2015. I feel like this is my home course,Ž Watson said. As soon as they put the schedule up, I sign up for this. I want to come back here. This means so much, not only from the golf side of it, but from the family side. My dad, it was the only time he got to see me win (in 2010). He got to see me qualify for the Ryder Cup at this event. So all these things just mean so much to my family.Ž During the victory ceremony, Watson children „ 6-year-old son Caleb and 3-year-old daughter Dakota „ received small trophies of their own. Watson shot a 33 on the front nine, but really got it going on the back, with five birdies. He tied Casey at 16-under par by getting up and down from the bunker for a birdie on the courses signature 15th hole. Still tied on the par-4 18th, Watson hit his tee shot 366 yards, then pitched inside 3 feet, giving caddie Ted Scott a big high-five before taking the lead with the p utt. Hitting some of those shots, especially the shot on 18, downwind, it was very difficult, but somehow pulling it offŽ Watson said. And thats what we all try to do on Sundays is pull off the amazing shot.Ž Casey, who shot 65, 67 and 62 to lead the field by four shots coming into Sunday, birdied his opening hole. But he gave that back on the fifth and had back-to-back bogeys on 16 and 17 to end any chance he had of catching Watson. The Englishman has finished in the top 20 in eight of his last nine tournaments. He was second here during his first visit in 2015, came in 17th a year later and had a fifth-place finish in Cromwell a year ago. There was a lot of fight in there,Ž Casey said. But, I fought my golf swing all day as you can see coming down the last couple of holes.Ž Watson earned $1.26 million and a 500 FexEx Cup points, moving him into third place in the standings. Cink tied the best round of the week with a 62 on Sunday. The two-time Travelers Champion came out blazin g o p enin g with three straight birdies and putting up a 29 on the front nine. He was 7-under through 10 and acknowledged thinking about a sub-60 round after making birdie on the 15th. I knew that I needed three birdies to shoot 59. But quickly, I also remembered that the golf tournament was on the line and it would mean a lot more to me to win the Travelers Championship than to shoot a 59.Ž He bogeyed 16, but finished the round with his 10th birdie. Defending champion J ordan S p ieth, who was tied for the lead after the opening round, shot a 69 to finish at 4 under. There hasnt been a repeat champion in Cromwell since Phil Mickelson in 2001 and 2002. Spieth said he was originally planning to take time off until he defends his title at the British Open, but may re-evaluate that as he works on his game. U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka shot a 65 to tie for 19th at 9 under. He said his top priority right now is rest, but said that wont come until after he attends a bachelor party for his best friend next week.GOLFFrom Page 1By ROB HARRISAssociated PressNIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia „ With two penalties and an accidental deflection, Harry Kane moved ahead of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo and put England into the round of 16 at the World Cup. Kane scored half of Englands goals Sunday in a 6-1 rout of Panama, the national teams largest-ever margin of victory at the World Cup. The third one is probably one of the luckiest ones of my career,Ž said Kane, who took the game ball to the locker room. Sometimes you go through spells where you are scoring and sometimes it doesnt fall for you. Not many players get to score a hat trick in a World Cup.Ž Kane has scored a tournament-leading five goals at the World Cup in Russia, one more than Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku. He also has 18 for Englands national team, one more than Beckham. Not since the 4-2 victory over Germany in the 1966 final has England scored as many goals at the World Cup. The ruthlessness of the display in the sweltering heat of Nizhny Novgorod showed just how far England has been transformed in the four years since an older, more experienced squad couldnt even manage a win when it exited the World Cup in the group stage. In 2014, England complained about the heat in Brazil „ particularly the humidity of the Amazonian jungle in the teams opening loss to Italy. Kane scored two in the opening 2-1 victory over Tunisia, including a header in injury time. The other day we had to go right to the wire and show qualities that were going to be extremely important,Ž England coach Gareth Southgate said. The only downside was the goal at the end because we talked at halftime about the importance of controlling the group with our goal difference. We missed out on that opportunity but it would be harsh to criticize the players after a day like that, in the heat as well, so we must enjoy the win.Ž Now England is sure of a spot in the round of 16 with a game to spare in Group G. Panama, which offered little resistance, is leaving the tournament early after being eliminated along with Tunisia.WORLD CUP: England 6, Panama 1Kane scores hat trick in Englands rout of PanamaAP PHOTOEnglands Harry Kane celebrates after he scored his sides second goal during the group G match between England and Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, yesterday. By SAMUEL PETREQUINAssociated PressKAZAN, Russia „ Radamel Falcaos first World Cup goal led Colombia to a 3-0 victory over Poland on Sunday and kept the team in the running for a spot in the knockout round. Falcao had been expected to lead the team at the last World Cup in Brazil, but he injured his knee ahead of the tournament and missed Colombias run to the quarterfinals. Healthy again, the Monaco striker scored with the outside of his foot in the 70th minute after a superb pass from playmaker Juan Quintero in the back of the defense. Poland, which has two losses, was eliminated. Yerry Mina scored the first goal in the 40th and Juan Cuadrado completed the win in the 75th. Both teams lost their Group H openers and knew another loss would end their hopes of advancing. Colombia will next face Senegal on Thursday in Samara with a chance to win the group, while Poland will play Japan in Volgograd. Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 earlier Sunday and lead the group with four points each. Mina out-jumped the Poland defense to head in the opening goal from James Rodriguezs cross, rewarding a spell of domination by the Colombians. Rodriguezs through ball after Poland lost possession in midfield led to the final goal. Cuadrado collected the pass and rushed toward the box, timing his shot perfectly to beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Poland got off to an aggressive start in the hot and humid Tatarstan capital, pressing high and winning most of the duels in the opening minutes. Colombia gradually settled in, though, with Quintero providing attacking width and Cuadrado proving dangerous with his subtle moves on the edge of the box.WORLD CUP: Colombia 2, Poland 1Falcao scores, Colombia beats PolandBy KAREL JANICEKAssociated PressYEKATERINBURG, Russia „ Keisuke Honda sat on the bench for 72 minutes, knowing a goal would make him the first Japanese player to score at three World Cups. Six minutes later, it was a done deal. The former AC Milan forward scored in the 78th minute, knocking the ball past two defenders standing on the goal line, to give Japan a 2-2 draw with Senegal on Sunday at the World Cup. The 32-year-old Honda also scored at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. He has 37 international goals in his career. I believe I used substitutions very well in looking back,Ž said Japan coach Akira Nishino, who took over shortly before the tournament started. Honda was moved from center to the wide side and he was very versatile at adapting to that position. We really wanted to win, we wanted to equalize and also take the lead even though there was only a short period of time left.Ž The draw keeps both teams at the top of Group H ahead of their final matches. Japan will next face Poland in Volgograd on Thursday while Senegal faces Colombia in Samara. Sadio Mane gave Senegal the lead in the 11th minute with his first World Cup goal. The Liverpool forward tapped the ball into the net after goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima was unable to control a shot from Youssouf Sabaly. The ball touched my foot and went into the net,Ž Mane said. It was really just the foot on the ball.Ž Japan struck back in the 34th minute when Takashi Inui scored with Japans first shot on goal, but Moussa Wague restored the lead with a shot high into the net in the 71st. A minute later, Nishino sent on Honda and striker Shinji Okazaki. Senegal outshot Japan 14-7 and had five shots on target. Japan had only two. Frankly speaking, I think we are a bit disappointed,Ž Mane said. And thats normal because there was a way to win this match.Ž Aliou Cisse, the coach of Senegal and the captai n of the 2002 team that reached the quarterfinals, said his team needs to be more aggressive.WORLD CUP: Japan 2, Senegal 2Honda goal gives Japan a draw with Senegal
