News WireSEBRING „ Night after night Dinner Lake residents wake up multiple times in the early morning hours to the sound of train whistles. Now, residents want the county to establish a quiet zone on a half-mile stretch of railroad tracks near the lake, used by both Amtrak and CSX. Doug Varrieur, a resident who lives near the train tracks, began researching laws regarding train whistles, because he felt sleep deprived and his property values were falling due to the noise at night. Varrieur purchased his house on Arbuckle Creek Road in 2017 and lives near two train crossings. Trains are required to blow their whistles 1,500 feet before crossing an intersection. Since the two crossings near Varrieurs home are a half-mile apart, he hears the whistle twice when Dinner Lake residents hoping to silence train whistlesBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ Sebring hosted the 13th Heartland Triathlon this year. From its beginning with roughly 200 participants, it has grown into a premier event attended by at least 1,000 athletes, including some who compete at the highest national levels. Fully accredited, athletes, including the youth, can gain points allowing them to take part in championship races. At the same time, the race is friendly enough to attract many novice participants who are simply working to get into better physical condition.

The matriarch and patriarch, Susie and Larry Lee, will soon relinquish the reigns of their beloved dance club. A meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 7 to discuss the future of LPBD prior to the patriotic dance that will start at 6:30 p.m. Charter members are requested to attend. Free pizza and ice cream will be served. The red, white, and blue themed dance will also be a farewell to dance instructor Gina Guirola, who has taught the group for the past three years. Guirola will be moving to a Tampa dance studio on July 1. Chrissy Harriman will provide the entertainment for the evening. The Lees will be moving to Upstate New York to be near their kids and grandkids. The usually spry nonagenarians have been slowed down with some health issues and want spend time relaxing with family. It was wonderful while it lasted,Ž Susie Lee said. I loved doing it; it was never anything that I had to be prompted to do. I want someone to take it over who will love it and has the time for it. I have an idea of who could do it, but it has to come from them.Ž The LPBD was born in 2011, a labor of love that the Lees have for each other and dancing. The two met in 2001 in Punta Gorda where Larry Lee was taking dance lessons. When Susie Lee moved to Punta Gorda from Massachusetts, her friends, one who happened to be Larrys dance instructor, encouraged her to join their lessons. Since neither dancer had a partner, the instructors set the couple up. They have been happily dancing together ever since.

Her hard work and excellent communication skills earned her the title of Florida Cattlemens Association Sweetheart. On June 21, Tauchen was crowned FCA Sweetheart. The competition was based on knowledge; it was not a beauty pageant. However, Tauchen sparkles as a true beauty, emitting passion and poise as she informs people about the beef industry. Eight contestants vied for the role of FCA Sweetheart, a position that requires them to travel around Florida representing the beef industry. Scores were based on “ve parts: a written exam about the beef industry, a 15-minute interview, a separate “ve-minute interview, an on-stage question, and a PowerPoint presentation. Throughout the week, judges watched the contestants to see how they interacted with other people. At a dinner June 21, contestants wore formal dresses and stood on stage. The winner had been determined after the last interview on Wednesday, and the competition did not base the results on the beauty or poise of the girls in the evening gowns. Tauchen was crowned during this dinner by former FCA Sweetheart Milli Jones. I liked the competition because its based on intelligence, what you know,Ž Tauchen said. Before competing, Tauchen enrolled in two online courses to prepare for the event, Masters of Beef Advocacy and Beef Quality Assurance. The contestants were required to know current issues and problems in the industry, how to keep good records on a ranch and how to provide proper veterinary care to Tauchen crowned Florida Cattlemens SweetheartBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITER COURTESY PHOTOResidents of Dinner Lake are aected by the noise of train whistles coming from the two crossings designated on the map.WHISTLE | 8 CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/CORRESPONDENTMike Ritacco was a participant of the Heartland Triathlon before serving on the board.

SEBRING „ Two men now face charges involving stolen guns, as well as a stolen television, which they allegedly sold to a woman who had one stolen from her. Michael Morrison Dodd, 21, and Joel William Vadi, 23, both of Sebring, each face burglary of a dwelling, grand theft, grand theft of a “rearm and dealing in stolen property. Dodd, arrested Wednesday by Highlands County Sheriffs deputies, was still in the Highlands County Jail on Saturday in lieu of $37,000 bond. Vadi, arrested last Monday, has since made bail. The burglary reportedly took place sometime on June 9. Arrest reports state the two men allegedly entered a Sunrise Drive home in Sun N Lake of Sebring by prying open the back door. Certain other details of their entry have been redacted from arrest reports. Allegedly, they removed a 65-inch Samsung television, valued at $900, and two “rearms: An unknown make/model revolver valued at $200 and a Sig Sauer .22-caliber handgun, also valued at $200. Later that evening, reports state, Dodd allegedly arranged with Vadi to sell the television to a relative for $40. Reports stated that buyer was purchasing it for another relative who recently had a television stolen. Deputies interviewed the buyer, but that statement was redacted from reports, too. Only the television was sold, not the “rearms, reports said. Victims reported other items as stolen from their Sunrise Drive home, but deputies still dont have an itemized list, reports said. Anyone with further information about this case is urged to contact the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce at 863-402-7200.Men charged in stolen guns caseBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITER DODD VADI adno=3582723

He was a TownŽ cat that everyone in town knew and loved. He was a tomcat but someone gave him the name of Missy before his gender was known. He was a “xture in downtown Sebring especially around the Circle for 13 years and spent most of his days at the IGA Grocery Store located on the Circle (owned by Tommy Whitehouse) in the 60s and 70s. Whitey would often be found fast asleep in the IGA store front window, curled up on a shelf, or sometimes he would be found napping on a stack of paper bags, an irritant to the health department. Whitey also liked living life on the edge „ sleeping under cars parked in front of the store. He had some narrow escapes being that there was a lot of traf“c on the Circle at the time. He was very popular with local folks and returning snowbirds, who came in especially to see Whitey and pet him. Wheres Whitey they would ask. Oh, hes probably out to lunch.Ž Every day between 5 and 6 p.m. Whitey would slip out the back door and head to the Cathouse Restaurant for his evening meal just across the street, knowing there was a roast beef dinner waiting for him. He never had to go hungry,Ž said Minnie Belle Carnes, a 25-year employee at IGA. She had fond memories of Whitey. He would meet us every morning when wed go to work. The late Norman Peck, former owner of the Cathouse Restaurant said in 1979, Whitey came every evening for his supper. He was quite a character,Ž Peck said. The employees at IGA loved and liked him and made sure he was fed and cared for. Whitey created such a sensation that it was like a minor tourist attraction for downtown Sebring. The routine for Whitey was spending his days roaming around in and around the Circle and at the IGA store. Nights were spent at Jerry Estess (Tommys sister) home. In the morning he made his way to the IGA store in time for opening. Then things changed. In 1979, Tommy Whitehouse decided to close the IGA store due to competition from the chain grocery stores. He left behind the little store that his daddy built in the early 1900s. And Whitey stayed on hiding in the alleyways and freeloading at the Cathouse Restaurant. He must have been lonely or it could have been a combination of things„depression, plus the fact Mr. Whitehouses sister (Estes) had gone on vacation and the Cathouse Restaurant was closed for three weeks for the summer,Ž said the Chamber of Commerce director that was next door. Whitey was taken to the local animal hospital and appeared to be very ill. He appeared to be suffering. Was it age, exposure, depression and hunger that had taken its toll? Whitey was put to sleep Aug. 14, 1979 at the age of 13 at the Sebring Animal Hospital. Tommys sister Estes was on vacation in North Carolina when Whitey died. She wrote to the Tampa Tribune saying that the cat seemed well when she left for vacation and that she had made arrangements for the cat to be fed each day while she was gone. The only solution that I can come up with is that he grieved for me and the boys in the IGA store who would feed him and pet him,Ž said Estes, who also died the same year. The Sebring Historical Society and Sebring residents who knew Whitey, the townŽ cat decided to honor him by giving him a decent grave site in the center of town on the Circle. The gravesite is there and faces the building that was formerly the IGA Grocery store. Next to the Chamber of Commerce. He was truly our town catŽ Sebring Historical Societys president, Arlene Commings told the Sebring City Council. I want to give the cat known as Whitey a distinguished burial site.ŽOn the Circle. So, that is where you can see Whitey the town cats grave, a most honorable cat. Credit is given to the Sebring Historical society and especially Arlene Commings for recognizing the impact that Whitey had on the little town of Sebring.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.comANOTHER VIEW Tim Smolarick Publisher Romona Washington Executive Editor VIEWPOINTS Karen Clogston Editor Rob Kearly Circulation Director The Veterans Administration has proved to be too large to be run effectively. So Congress turned to competition in recent years, providing options for veterans to use vouchers in the private health care market. In 2014, Congress created the VA Choice Program, which has allowed more than 1.7 million veterans to seek health services in the private sector. In 2015, the VA began planning for competition with private-sector providers. In a paper in The New England Journal of Medicine, David Shulkin „ the former head of the VA „ and physician Kyle Sheetz outline ways to advance quality. First, there must be reliable data. Second, community-based providers must be present as options for veterans. Third, the VA must deal swiftly and ef“ciently with hospitals that are performing poorly. Constantly comparing the VA to the private sector will allow veterans to have real choices „ and it will keep VA of“cials accountable. Repealing Obamacare The headline in The Wall Street Journal announced, Conservatives make new push to repeal Affordable Care Act.Ž There was no mention of replacing Obamacare with something else; instead the act is being dismantled piece by piece. This is a disservice to Americans who need affordable, quality health care „ a need more pressing than ever in an era when part-time jobs and contractual services are growing. There have been a variety of bipartisan plans offered in Congress to provide near-universal health care, but none have gone anywhere. One conservative proposal would use federal block grants to the states to help consumers buy coverage; in addition, health savings accounts would be expanded. Medicaid would be repealed and vouchers would be used to help people buy coverage. The fact is Medicaid has such low reimbursement rates in some cases that it has been dif“cult to “nd providers. Republicans like vouchers and health savings accounts, but the problem always comes with funding them at realistic and adequate levels. End the drug gag orde r How rigged has the game become when it comes to high prescription drug prices? It has become so rigged that some pharmacists are banned from telling Medicare consumers they can save money by paying cash rather than using insurance. Yes, if a consumer asks, the pharmacist is allowed to answer. But how is an uninformed consumer supposed to know they can ask in the “rst place? According to Kaiser Health News, out of 9.5 million Medicare Part D prescriptions, the cash price was lower than the co-payment in 1 of 4 cases. And patients have overpaid by more than 33 percent when purchasing 12 of the most commonly prescribed drugs. The gag order goes against everything that makes America great, and it should be eliminated. End roadblocks for generic s Another example of the rigged game of drug prices: generic drugmakers have been blocked from producing cheaper drugs because brand name companies stall in providing samples for testing. The federal government logically requires generic drugmakers to prove that their products are functionally equivalent to the brand names. But the Food and Drug Administration has listed 50 drugs whose brand manufacturers withheld or refused to provide samples. This leads to two logical questions: € Wheres the enforcement to make sure manufacturers provide samples? € Why not start “ning manufacturers for failing to meet reasonable deadlines? Fighting opioid deaths Deaths due to opioid overdoses could be dramatically reduced if antidotes were readily available. One solution involves reducing the price of naloxone; the federal government has the authority to use a patented invention without permission of its patent holder so long as the government pays reasonable compensation. This means the government could purchase generic versions of naloxone and distribute them to government agencies as a public health matter. Based on the shocking surge of overdose deaths, this is a public health emergency that warrants federal action. An editorial from the Jacksonville Florida Ti mes-Union.A public health emergencyYOUR VIEW Psychology of school shootingsA preoccupation with video games that deal in violence and movies portraying violence can turn a kid into a killer. Children today spend countless hours practicing violent video games, so called murder simulators. The whole mentality, the whole design is a how-to manual for killing without a conscience. They teach you to associate pleasure with death and human suffering and you are learning to like it. It provides the motor skills that make you capable of extraordinary arts of accuracy with the weapon. Violent video games found in arcades and homes across America teach you to “re, shoot. Dont wait for the target to drop, you dont have time; go from one to the next and you get bonus points. The more you kill, the higher the score. On video screens the blood doesnt smell, you cant touch or feel it so you become desensitized and the natural reluctance to kill another person is overcome. They are more than just games. They are a mechanism, which equips one to take his fantasies and turn them into reality. Violent movies starring teen idols can lead one down a path that says violence is good, violence is great. You feel like a hero. The slow motion aspects makes it all the more mesmerizing. Some disturbed individuals will react inadvertently to all kinds of things and will imitate what they see in the movies. The video and entertainment industry are responsible for what they put on the market. When a disturbed individual is bombarded with violent images and then goes out and executes them, we should not be surprised. Until we stop this the killings wont stop. Dorothy Smalls Lake Placid How to safely increase running speed Running, walking, biking, swimming, require great amount of physical movement. As a teenager you had boundless energy. As we age we begin to slow down because we think we must. As a mature adult you cant be running around the neighborhood like a youngster. This is the axiom you must daily repeat to yourself: The human body is made to move. Stop moving and atrophy sets in then death. Well, so what, we all will die sooner or later. Yes, and you just chose sooner. Example: a friend was a seasoned “nishing carpenter. He retired at 65. Took odd jobs now and then. Then decided to watch T.V. all day. He was dead at 69, weak heart just gave out. Atrophy did its job quickly. This is how to increase running speed. First, “nd your running rhythm. Everyone has a different swag. Find the one that you are most comfortable, the one that gives you an air of satisfaction. If you cadence run, run for a hand count. Otherwise run normally for three minutes. Run fast for one minute, slow down to the 3 minute speed. If you are not “t enough to complete this system, then do it by the half mile, or mile or by the block. Run comfortable, run fast, run comfortable, run fast. This system is vital to do even if you do not want to increase speed but durability. If you never increase speed once in a while it will slow your comfortable tempo and eventually you will slump over and grimace with each step. After all, a “t person can run a marathon in his driveway.Ralph Bell Lake PlacidShe was a tiny lady, standing just 4-foot-10, but dont let the size fool you. She was a strong lady ƒ in her faith, her love for her family, and her love and support of her husband. My aunt was 90 when she passed away last week. About three years ago she had suffered a stroke, and she never clearly recovered from that. Still, that little lady continued to love her family with all of her heart and continued to go to church faithfully and study her Bible until she just couldnt do it anymore. My aunt and uncle celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary last November. I had gone home the year before when the family gathered to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary and my uncles 90th birthday. Talk about a couple of things to celebrate! Im so glad I was there. It was a quick trip. My parents had gone up the week before not knowing that my son and I had been secretly planning to also make the trip and surprise everyone. I talked to my parents through the week, never hinting about our plans. We left one early Thursday morning and made it into our hometown the next night. We messed around the next day, checking out the neighborhood where I grew up, the schools I attended and the park near the river where we frequently had family picnics. Sunday morning we headed to the small country church maybe a half-mile down the road from my uncle and aunts home. Bible study had already started, but we quickly found a seat near one of my cousins. I put my “nger to my lips to keep him from whispering anything loudly. Before the service started, I walked towards the front and tapped my dad on the shoulder, took a few more steps forward and, like always, looked at my uncle and said, Well, hey there good lookin.Ž While my dad was still working on getting the look of shock off his face and my mother was sitting next to him with a huge smile on hers, my uncle in his still towering height stood up and wrapped his big arms around me in a welcoming hug. We pulled off the surprise visit, even if it was for a short time. Following church service we went into town where a reception was held at the school where some of my cousins had attended. I dont know exactly how many were there, but I was able to see cousins from another part of Moms family that I hadnt seen in a while. See, Mom has three siblings (she had two more, but both of them died before she was born). Her sister has four children, one brother has 10 children and the brother I was there to help celebrate has eight children. Thats a lot of cousins, just on my moms side of the family. My mom suffered with a lot of illness while we lived in Illinois; thats actually what caused us to move to Florida. During her hospital stays, my two siblings and I would stay with one or the other of my aunt and uncles, which one usually depended on whether school was in session as one lived within our school district and the other did not. We loved going to their homes for overnight stays. Both lived on farms so there was always plenty to do and lots of animals to be around. Although its more than 40 years, that hasnt changed a bit. My aunt and uncle that we were there to celebrate made a regular habit of having a family gathering out by the pond in the pasture at least once a weekend, and especially when they knew we would be up for a visit. As many of the family members that could attend on a monthly basis would be there to spend good quality family time together. Ive always admired how close they are as a family unit. One of my cousins lives in Texas, but she is the only one to live more than 20 miles away from my aunt and uncle. One cousin is their next door neighbor ƒ a quarter mile down the road on the other side of the corn“eld. When my aunt passed away last week the family was already large in number. I already mentioned the eight cousins, but there are also 23 grandchildren and she was awaiting the birth of her 50th great-grandchild, due to arrive sometime this month. Those numbers do not include spouses, so do the math and you can imagine what Christmas had to be like around the house because I promise you as many of them as possible would make a stop at their grandparents before the day would be over. Thats the kind of family I grew up in. Women who are strong in their faith and in their love for their husbands and their children. We may not all be able to gather on a regular basis like my cousins do at my aunt and uncles home, but the love is there in each of our parents homes. The love that my aunt and uncle shared was evident in their everyday lives. Whether it was a puzzle that they tried to get us to solve, a gentle touch on the shoulder as one walked by or the playfullness of smearing cake frosting on each others nose, their love was the kind all of us would be lucky to have.

A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.coma train goes through his neighborhood. CSX trains are twice the decibel level of Amtrak trains. These trains wake everyone up. Its sound pollution. I represent hundreds of people who live in this area,Ž Varrieur said. My property values are being held hostage by CSX, because homeowners must disclose that CSX trains come through the area at night. We are unjustly taxed by sound pollution that doesnt have to happen,Ž he said. Varrieur researched the issue and found that Florida Statute 351.03 spelled out criteria for establishing a whistle ban. Speci“cally, F.S. 351.03 states: (4)(a) The Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration may authorize a municipality or county to implement a whistle ban provided the following conditions are met: 1. A traf“c operations system is implemented to secure railroad-highway grade crossings for the purpose of preventing vehicles from going around, under, or through lowered railroad gates. 2. The municipality or county has in effect an ordinance that unconditionally prohibits the sounding of railroad train horns and whistles during the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. at all public railroad-highway grade crossings within the municipality or county and where the municipality, county, or state has erected signs at the crossing announcing that railroad train horns and whistles may not be sounded during such hours.

Linda Conrad, zoning supervisor for Highlands County, said, We are still researching [the quiet zone] at this time. At this point, a decision has not been made. I dont have complete answers. We will meet with our supervisor, Randy Vosburg, Highlands County administrator, to discuss this [quiet zone]. This is just staff review at this time, because someone in the general public asked about it,Ž she said. Whenever citizens come to the county and ask us to look into something, we will, but we must check the feasibility of it. This is a federal requirement,Ž Conrad said. Its a little different than changing county codes.Ž Some controversy exists about implementing whistle bans. The U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration published a study in 1995 called Floridas Whistle Ban.Ž The study states: There is a strong correlation between nighttime whistle bans and the number of accidents at highway-rail crossings.Ž When whistle bans became effective on Floridas east coast, the nighttime accident rate at affected crossings tripled after whistle bans were imposed,Ž the study stated. Supporters of the whistle ban refer to the website, which states, In 2005, the Federal Railroad Administration took over jurisdiction of Quiet Zones, and mandated signi“cantly upgraded supplemental safety measures in 2006. We have every reason to believe based on available data that those upgraded SSMs are doing the job quite well.Ž WHISTLEFROM PAGE 1 worked to create the event and now its current director, says it was the outpouring of support from civic groups, the city, individual volunteers, the Sebring Police and Fire departments and the Sheriffs Of“ceŽ that made the event possible in the “rst place and allowed it to blossom. We couldnt do without them and the effort everyone makes,Ž he added In fact, when the Highlands News-Sun approached Andrews, Jeff Carlson and Kevin Shutt, who assist Andrews in directing the event, for the name of a volunteer to honor as the Unsung Hero for June in recognition of the Tri, they were reluctant to name just one person. Its stressful,Ž Andrews said. There are a lot of moving parts and a core of dedicated volunteers who all deserve recognition.Ž For example, Andrews said, in addition to a ton of individualsŽ who have helped out year after year, there are groups who receive donations in return for “elding at least a 15-member team to help with the race. Youths from Grace Bible Church and Bible Fellowship Church turn out, as well as the Sebring High School Band, the cheerleading squad and volleyball team. Students from Walker Memorial Academy, Lake Placid Youth Football, and the Lake Placid High School 20/20 graduation project also take part, as do the Highlands Peddlers Bicycle Club and One Hope United. But,Ž Andrews said somewhat reluctantly „ only because he has such a wealth of people with community spirit from which to choose „ Mike RitaccoŽ„ one of the triathlons coordinators „ really stands out as a leader in the event. For the three days straight of the event he works hands on. And hes there from the “rst planning meeting to the “nal cleanup. Mike is an excellent example of what makes this event a successful one of many. Were really pleased to say thank you to him. Like our other core volunteers he understands the race, the pain and effort the participants put into it. Hes knowledgeable and experienced.Ž Ritacco was born in Miami, but moved to Lake Placid with his family when very young. He graduated from Lake Placid High School in the 1980s. I call Lake Placid home, no question,Ž he said, adding hed played football in high school and still bleeds green.Ž After going out of state to college, and spending several years teaching and coaching in Ocala, Ritacco returned to Lake Placid. He worked in a couple of different “elds before joining the YMCA to work with youngsters and as a personal trainer. He later moved to a small independent business that gives him free time to volunteer during the Heartland Triathlon. An active athlete, he had participated in at least one Heartland Tri when Cherise Star, the events original director, approached the YMCA seeking help and volunteers. Ritacco was asked to serve on the Tri board representing the YMCA. Hes been a regular volunteer for years. For the last several years he coordinates the running portion of the event. The run is now restricted to Sebrings downtown. The athletes run up and down each of the spoke streets and around the Circle … where 300 gallons of water are handed out at three water stations. City workers and law enforcement of“cers block off the ends of the streets. Fifty volunteers help the professionals and serve at the water stations. We couldnt put on the race without those folks,Ž Ritacco said, the police, sheriffs deputies, and city workers. We all work so well together now; we do a great job. I say we because I see the same guys every year and they make me look good. The behind-thescenes people deserve so much more credit than they get,Ž Ritacco said, adding the participants, especially the adults, do know how much work the volunteers do … you see them thanking them after the race.ŽUNSUNGFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTOMike Ritacco runs along with a Heartland Triathlon participant.

They found the Highlands Social Dance Club and danced there for years before forming the LPBD. The LPBD meets once a month at the Lake Placid Elks Lodge, where Guirola offers free dance lessons before the start of the themed dances. Dance themes in the past have been Woodstock, Roaring 20s and holiday-themed. I thought if we started a legacy „ its been seven years „ someone would take it over some day,Ž Susie Lee said. These people that are in our group are different. Theres never any animosity like you see in other groups. Everyone just chips in and helps. They have just been a friendly group.Ž She recalls a time when Larry was sick and she was wondering how things were going to get done in time for the dance. She was pleasantly surprised when the members showed up at the Elks Lodge early to decorate in time for the dance. Its an act of love; if you love what you do, its not work,Ž she said. She fondly remembers Mat Delaney, then-editor for the Highlands Sun. Without him, we wouldnt have a dance hall. We ran out of room at two locations before moving to the Elks,Ž Lee said. I just love the Highlands Sun.Ž According to Lee, Delaney had contacts at the location. Delaney will remember the Lees fondly. It was a pleasure to have a front row seat and witness the Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers evolve from an idea to a regularly scheduled social and recreational opportunity for a wide range of ages,Ž Delaney said. It was the vision and determination of Larry and Susie Lee that made LPBD a reality.

When asked why she wanted to compete, she became a little teary eyed and responded, I want to do everything in my power to take care of my future ranch and help my dad take care of the family ranch. What better way to learn about the beef industry and make connections than to participate in the Florida Cattlemens Sweetheart competition?Ž As part of her role as FCA Sweetheart, Tauchen is required to attend 10 different speaking engagements. She will give a PowerPoint presentation on how having beef in a diet can help prevent diabetes, arthritis, obesity and sarcopenia, or skeletal muscle loss. In Tauchens presentation, she compares the amount of calories and protein found in various food sources. For example, she states that there are 25 grams of protein in a 3-ounce serving of lean beef with only 154 calories compared to 25 grams of protein found in three cups of quinoa with 666 calories. Tauchen informs people that eating beef can help them get the protein they need without excessive calories. In addition to making presentations, she will be required do write a monthly column for the Florida Cattlemens Association. Tauchen is excited about writing the articles, because she is a journalism major at the University of Florida and she loves to write. She plans to visit various family ranches and spend a day with each of them. I will interview the family ranchers and learn from people who have been in the industry for a long time,Ž she said. Tauchen feels one of the biggest problems in the beef industry is lack of public knowledge. You dont go a day without using a beef by-product, even if you dont eat beef,Ž she said. Glue, paint, marshmallows and asphalt all use beef by-products. According to Tauchen, some people are concerned about the care of animals. Through programs like Beef Quality Assurance, we make sure animals are not abused and they get proper care,Ž Tacuhen said. This program makes sure ranchers use safe veterinary practices and keep good records about their care of animals. There are regulations regarding pen size to keep cattle from being stressed and regulations regarding how far away fertilizer should be kept from cattle to maintain their health and safety. I am really honored to be the FCA Sweetheart. It means a lot for my family and my county.

With team owner John Dean II leading the way with a pair of victories, the team earned two podiums in each race and now have three drivers in the top “ve of the season standings. Road America „ Ive always quali“ed really well there, taken a lot of track records and a lot of poles, but I havent really won a lot there or havent been on the podium as much as youd think I would have been, so that made the double win a bit emotional,Ž Dean said. It became apparent right from the start „ to Dean at least „ that he had a car capable of taking him to Victory Lane. Others may not have known it becuase his transponder wasnt working in Practice 1, but it did work the rest of the way and showed Dean record the fastest time in Practice 2, dominate the qualifying sessions, with multiple laps faster than the second-fastest driver and of course, take both wins. It was just a fantastic weekend for me personally,Ž Dean said. I was lucky enough to enjoy standing on the podium with a teammate in both races, with Selin (Rollan) “nishing third in Race 1 and Sparky (Nathanial Sparks) “nishing second in Race 2.

A10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 drivers may wind up in Sebring. FARA does things a bit different than other series and they have two primary goals „ make the racing as good as possible for the drivers „ and make it a fan-friendly event that is affordable for the entire family. In 2012, FARA introduced what are known as Courtesy Tickets, in which you only pay for parking. Courtesy Tickets for the Sebring 500 will be available at all Alan Jay Automotive Network dealerships or online at, and with one you pay just $20 for parking in the paddock area or $10 to park in the in“eld area for an entire carload of fans. Making it affordable is the whole idea,Ž FARa Chief Operating Of“cer Carlos Mendez said. There arent too many places you can take an entire family for the day for $20.Ž Mendez said he was appreciative of all the support the series has gotten from the Alan Jay Automotive Network. Weve gotten support from Alan Jay since Day 1,Ž he said. They have been great.Ž Gates will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday, which is when cars will take to the track for practice and qualifying. The “rst race of the day will be the “rst Miata Cup race at 10 a.m. Were excited to come to Sebring and put on a great show for the fans,Ž Mendez said. Tell everybody to pack a cooler and come out for a great day of racing.Ž For more information and a complete schedule visit www.farausa. com.FARAFROM PAGE 9 ALLEN MOODY/STAFFThe No. 31 Lamborghini Gallardo races in last years FARA event at Sebring International Raceway. Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China … the second largest market for Chevrolet,Ž said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM. The WEC is one of the worlds key sports car series that features racing at venues across the world with all races being at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WECs most famous stop and it features twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. It tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving. Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,Ž said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.Ž Corvette Racing has won 107 races around the world and 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition to go with 11 drivers championships in IMSA. Corvette has 11 class victories at Sebring, eight at Le Mans and three in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Racing has been part of Chevrolets DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to in”uence the entire Chevrolet lineup today. Redline The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolets portfolio. Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet. Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants. Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,Ž said Lawson. Corvette Racing is no stranger to the WEC, having been a “xture at Le Mans for many years and just placing “fth with the No. 63 car, which competes as the No. 3 car in the WeatherTech series. The No. 63 team scraped and clawed for positions the entire 24 hours. Garcia began the race ninth, and the Corvette never fell below that the entire way. Despite lacking overall pace all three drivers, the crew and race engineers worked tirelessly to hover around the top-“ve before the Corvette settled into “fth place inside the “nal quarter of the race. At the end of the day, starting ninth and “nishing in “fth in the toughest GTE Pro class this race has even seen is nothing to be ashamed of,Ž said driver Mike Rockenfeller. O bviously our goal was different and at certain stages in the race we were really competitive. Unfortunately the safety cars split the GTE group in two and basically decided the race, which is a bummer except for the ones that got lucky. Its part of the race of course, and its happened here before. Apart from that its been a great experience for me to do my “rst Le Mans with the Corvette team. Ive learned a lot and still have a lot to learn about the Corvette. In the end we did our best, made no mistakes, not on the track nor in the pit, so we have nothing to be ashamed of.Ž The No. 64 car retired with mechanical issues.CORVETTEFROM PAGE 9 ALLEN MOODY/STAFFThe No. 3 Corvette Racing C7.R competing in this years 12 Hours of Sebring.the con“dence back up in the machinery. After Practice 1 I had a little more con“dence in the car. I was a little concerned because in the past that car felt really good for three laps and then it became hard to drive as the tires wore. I still had that in the back of my mind. When we were halfway done with Race 1 I realized I had an amazing racecar. I went from hating that car to loving it in one race.Ž Dean and Sparks have been together for quite a few years, but the rest of the team is new and Dean said theyre a great collection of characters. You have Ashton, shes just this crazy, bubbly fun girl and is an amazing driver,Ž he said. She has a ton of talent and is very fast, shes just trying to “gure out racecraft techniques and stuff and we have Brooks (Leal) and hes getting faster every weekend. Selin has a very dry humor and it takes a little while to understand him and get him out of his shell a little bit. We have Robert Noaker, a 14-year-old kid with a ton of talent.Ž Dean said collectively, the group is about as different as can be, which is one of the things that makes racing together so much fun. We have this very odd mixture of people,Ž he said. Everybody looks so different, everybody acts so different, but then you put us in the same room together and it is hysterical. We have so much fun, but at the same time were really serious about the driving. But to have that atmosphere, were at these races and to us theyre a big deal, we feel like theres a lot on the line and gets you tense, but this group kind of melts some of that away. Without those guys it wouldnt be as much fun.Ž Dean is in third place in the season standings, trailing leader Nikko Reger by 30 points, but was 55 points behind before Road America and has plenty of time to make up more ground with six races remaining. Rollan is fourth and Sparks is “fth, while Rollan holds a pretty big lead in the Rookie of the Year standings with 109 points, while Noaker is second with 59, but Dean said its too early to count Noaker out just yet. Hes had a little misfortune with a mechanical failure at Road America, but so did Selin,Ž Dean said. Selin is very, very aggressive, which is good and bad. When youre aggressive you can make up spots, but you can make mistakes, too. Robert isnt as aggressive, but hes real smooth. If you watch him at the end of races hes real fast. If Robert starts “guring out qualifying a little bit and is up a little higher up he could be deadly at the end. Im excited to watch the year progress for those two.Ž The series returns to action at Mid-Ohio on July 27 and as always, Sick Sideways will head to the track thinking about what they can do to make themselves better. We try to be the best that we can and see how it falls on track,Ž Dean said.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, July 2, 2018 Some of you have to jump out of bed really fast to mitigate a leg cramp, usually in the back of the calf, or in your thigh. Leg cramps are not only painful, but they are a leading cause of “tful sleeping, insomnia and daytime fatigue. They speak to bigger problems too, such as dehydration, nutritional de“ciencies and sometimes depression. This is because the root cause might be due to an imbalance in one of several key minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc or sodium. Today my article will help you deal more effectively with nocturnal leg cramps so you can sleep through the night and feel better during the day. Now, here are a few of the best hacks for leg cramps: Avoid sorbitol. Theres an interesting case study about a 34-year old woman who put herself on a diet that consisted of low sorbitol (and low fructose). She essentially cured herself of long-standing leg cramps within a few weeks. Reduce aspirin and ibuprofen. Many NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-in”ammatory drugs) are known to be drug muggers of natural folate. A de“ciency of this B vitamin will produce chronic leg cramps. Take CoQ10 with your statin. If you take a statin like lovastatin, atorvastatin or others, you should be taking CoQ10 or Ubiquinol every day. Avoid large doses of vitamin C. If you take too much vitamin C, it can upset your stomach and cause diarrhea. Then youre faced with dehydration and thats a trigger for leg cramps. Cut back on caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic, so it causes mild dehydration. You may have noticed that on days you drink a lot of coffee, or have several energy drinks, you have more leg cramps. Not only that, but the chlorogenic acid in coffee is a drug mugger for magnesium, iron and zinc. Drink Coconut Water. This is a natural electrolyte, and I think its healthier for you than those strangely colored drinks that are loaded with sugar and arti“cial colors. Heat up a microwavable hot pack. Heat one of these up and its sweet relief on your sore muscles. You can heat it up right after you cramp, and apply it to ease the pain faster. Drink a little pickle juice. This should not help, but it actually does. Its probably from the salt in the ”avoring or from the vinegar. The salt would help with electrolyte balance, the vinegar might serve as a mild muscle relaxant. Try a massager. The hand-held devices that provide percussion might bring instant relief. There are many at Brookstone, or on Amazon such as the Pure-Wave CM7 Cordless Massager. I have a much longer version of this article that I can send to you.

With the estimated number of people suffering from dementia and Alzheimers disease growing exponentially and optimism for better treatment plans fading, AARP, UnitedHealth Group and Quest Diagnostics announced this week a $75 million commitment to the Dementia Discovery Fund,Ž which is aimed at developing new drugs for treating dementia. Yarissa Reyes, state director of communications for the Alzheimers Association, said the additional funding is good news for Florida, where an estimated 540,000 people with Alzheimers disease live. It also helps the caregivers as well, said Reyes, who noted more than 1.1 million people in Florida care for dementia and Alzheimers patients. This is a win-win.Ž The Alzheimers Association de“nes dementia as a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.

Sometimes called dyspepsia, acid reflux or heartburn, GERD can generate a fiery sensation in the chest and throat that can range from mild to severe.What is GERD? GERD can affect anyone regardless of their age, gender or ethnicity. In the United States, approximately 20 percent of the population has GERD, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). Five million Canadians experience heartburn and/or acid regurgitation at least once each week, states the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation. GERD can cause difficulty swallowing, regurgitation of food or sour liquid, a sensation of a lump in the throat, or chest pain, advises the Mayo Clinic. Some people experience intermittent symptoms of GERD, while others experience symptoms with every meal or in between meals. People who have chronic reflux might also suffer from nighttime symptoms, such as disrupted sleep or chronic cough. The NIDDK says GERD also may cause Barretts esophagus, a condition in which tissue that is similar to the intestine replaces the tissue lining the esophagus.Treating symptoms In many mild to moderate cases of reflux, individuals can rely on lifestyle changes and natural remedies to prevent symptoms. € Avoid food triggers.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 How to help children hear betterIts summer time! Its the time of the year that we get outside and play. We travel on vacation to explore different places or to see family and friends. No matter where you go or what you do this summer, one thing is obvious ... the kids are out of school.Ž Its summer break. In our area of so many seniors it is especially obvious when we see the surge in youthful activities. Highlands Little Theatre presented the play Into The Woods Jr.Ž featuring the HLT Summer Theatre Institute students. The Circle Theatre is offering an Expressive Art Class for Children ages 3-12 and their parents.Ž Its the “rst Thursday of the month from 4-5 p.m. There are tons of fun stuff and the kids are out playing ball, going to dance, to the lake and to the pools. There are kids that are in perfect health and there are kids that are not. There are kids who effortlessly reach their full potential and then there are the ones who have to work extra hard to compete or struggle to “t in. I think with most people it hurts our heartsŽ a little bit when we see a child struggle. No matter what they are struggling with. Its easy to see a physical ailment that can slow them down from running or swimming. If you see them wearing glasses you know they have some problems with their vision. Some things are just easy to spot.Ž Hearing problems are not easy to spot.Ž It is estimated that 34 million children in the world have a disabling hearing loss. Wow! Thats worldwide. In the United States, two to three children out of every 1,000 children are born with a detectable hearing loss. Ninety percent of deaf children are born to parents with normal hearing. This is according to the National Institute of Health (December 2016). That is an overwhelming number of children to try and provide better hearing and a better life too. The Starkey Hearing Technologies Foundation; Starkey Hear Now Foundation provides Hearing Instruments to Children and Adults worldwide. (In our country, patients who qualify receive state of the art hearing instruments provided by the foundation). Our of“ce is a proud sponsor of this Foundation. In countries other than the United States the Starkey Foundation provides refurbished hearing instruments. So far, the Foundation has provided over 1.1 million hearing aids and batteries to over 100 countries. The Foundation was started over 30 years ago and is the largest foundation for hearing help available today ( To be this big and resilient they are a “nely tuned organization that is guided by the largest hearing manufacturer Starkey Hearing Technologies (established 51 years ago). They recondition all hearing instruments that are donated to them. They melt down the plastics of custom hearing aids and salvage all usable components and put them into behind-the-ear styles. Starkey salvages everything possible. They go on missions, after missions ... to “t children and adults with hearing aids and give them a better life. Its mind blowing. We have been on two missions and it changed our lives forever. This summer, as you are enjoying a little bit slower pace, take a few moments and go through your drawers, or ask your parents or grandparents to look for some old hearing aids. If you or someone you know has some old hearing aids laying around, please donate them. They dont have to be working. It does not matter if they are missing a piece or a dog chewed them up. There is something out of the hearing aid that can be used or refurbished. Never throw away an old hearing aid. Your donation will provide a child or an adult with better hearing. Some children dont play or sing, because they cant hear. Your donation of something you are not using and probably no longer need can put a huge smile on someone elses face. If you bring the hearing aids to our of“ce we will send them to the foundation in your name for you. Our of“ce is in downtown Sebring, 130 S. Commerce Ave., (Lampe & Kiefer Hearing Aid Center) across from the Habitat for Humanity Resale Store. The foundation will send you a thank you letter for your donation that you can use as an income tax deduction. Thanks for your help. #ToHearBetterIsToLiveBetter!Roseann B.

Monday, July 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 The Fourth, fireworks and your familyHappy Fourth of July! Along with having a day off to celebrate our independence, eating hamburgers and hot dogs, there is always the worth-the-wait “reworks. However, every year thousands of children are injured by “reworks, ranging from burns, eye injuries, to even deafness. So here are some things to keep in mind. €Leave it to the professionals The best way to enjoy “reworks is to leave it to the professionals. There are multiple “rework shows going on in the area, that are safe for everyone to enjoy. Do not use “reworks at home. According to a study by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), eight people died and an estimated 11,400 people were hurt while handling “reworks in 2013. The study found that 65 percent of “reworks injuries happen within the 30-day period leading up to the July 4th holiday, and one in four children who suffered “rework-related injuries were bystanders in backyard “reworks displays. In most places it is not legal for you to light “reworks, especially if you are in the city limits. Be sure to check with the local police department „ that is one “ne you can easily avoid. €Fireworks and your kids Kids should never play with “reworks. Things like “recrackers, rockets, and sparklers are just too dangerous. If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them outside and away from the face, clothing, and hair. Sparklers can reach 1,800F (982C) „ hot enough to melt gold and to give them a third degree burn. Children should never be running or goo“ng off with sparklers in their hands or around “reworks. Closely supervise children around “reworks. Dont allow kids to pick up pieces of “reworks after an event. Some may still be ignited and can explode at any time. If a child is injured by “reworks, go to the emergency room immediately. If an eye injury occurs, dont allow your child to touch or rub it. Dont ”ush the eye out with water or attempt to put any ointment on it. Instead, cut out the bottom of a paper cup, place it around the eye, and immediately seek medical attention „ your childs eyesight may depend on it. If your child is burned, remove clothing from the burned area and run cool, not cold, water over the burn (NEVER use ice). €Fireworks and your pets Dont forget your furry family member has very sensitive ears Fireworks can be very frightening and stressful for them. Keep your pets indoors to reduce the risk that they will get loose or injured. Take precautions. If “reworks are legal in your are, and you feel you have to light your own take precaution. Buy only legal “reworks, NEVER attempt to make your own “reworks. Never use them indoors or near dry grass. Do not wear loose clothing around “reworks. ALWAYS have a bucket of water and a hose nearby in case of accidents. Dont hold “reworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear some sort of eye protection, and avoid carrying “reworks in your pocket „ the friction could set them off. Never shoot “reworks in metal or glass containers Point “reworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and ”ammable substances Light one “rework at a time and NEVER relight a dud. Soak all “reworks in a bucket of water before throwing them away in a trash can. Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but youll enjoy them much more knowing your family is safe. Take extra precautions this Fourth of July and your holiday will be a blast! Happy Independence Day from Sun N Lake Medical Group!

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 Two-thirds of black men may be at high risk for cardiovascular diseaseGAINESVILLE „ A new University of Florida study “nds that 65 percent of black men over age 40 are at high risk of having a heart attack or stroke within the next 10 years. That percentage represents a substantial increase over time, from 53.5 percent in 1999. The “ndings appeared Tuesday, June 26 in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. Not only has this population shown a rise in risk, a signi“cant majority of this group is at high risk for a 10-year major cardiovascular event. This is quite worrisome,Ž said lead investigator Arch G. Mainous III, Ph.D., chair of the department of health services research, management and policy in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. The cardiovascular disease risk for most other population groups the team examined remained constant over time and actually decreased for two. Among white women, the prevalence of high cardiovascular disease risk fell from 9.6 percent to 5.8 percent, and among black women, the prevalence dropped from 15 percent to 10.6 percent. The study didnt examine the reasons why black mens cardiovascular disease risk factors have risen over time, but several elements may play a role, said co-author Ki Park, M.D., a clinical assistant professor of medicine in interventional cardiology at the UF College of Medicine and the Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center. These may include inadequate prevention measures aimed at racial subgroups, psychosocial elements and a lack of access to routine health care. Mainous says the “ndings underscore the importance of prevention efforts targeted to black men, such as lowering their blood pressure and making lifestyle changes. Using tools that calculate heart disease risk scores can help identify people who could bene“t from early interventions. The value of computing these risk scores is so we know who is at high risk and we can intervene,Ž he said. Its too late to wait until people have strokes.Ž In 2013, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association released the Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease, or ASCVD, risk score. The ASCVD risk score uses weighted variables, including age, sex, race/ ethnicity, smoking status, diabetes status, cholesterol, blood pressure and SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUNRISK | 5 HIGHLANDS HEALTH MILLENNIUM PHYSICIAN GROUP NOW IN HIGHLANDS COUNTY!

Monday, July 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5 July 20-22, 2018Tickets: Adults $15 • Youth $8 FREE PATRIOTIC THEMED SHOWS ON JULY 4TH! Alzheimers disease is expected to increase by 33 percent in the next seven years, totaling more than 720,000 by 2025. AARP announced its funding commitment as it released a new survey of U.S. physicians that shows a lack of optimism that the situation will improve soon. One in three physicians surveyed said current dementia treatment options are poor, and only 10 percent said they are extremely or very optimistic that effective treatment protocols will emerge in the next “ve years. AARP Florida spokesman Dave Bruns said the senior-advocacy group wont measure the success of its investment in traditional ways. The hope is that this will pay off in terms of more treatments and fewer patients suffering from dementia,Ž Bruns said. David Kang, director of basic science research at the USF Health Byrd Alzheimers Institute, said the additional funding can help bridge what he called the valley of deathŽ between academic research and clinical trials done by large pharmaceutical companies. The funding can be used to support the development of ideas into small companies,Ž Kang said, adding, or to support drugs that are almost there.Ž While there have been hundreds of clinical trials about Alzheimers disease in the past 15 years, drugs being tested have not come to the market. Patients and caregivers have “ve drugs to choose from: Aricept, Razadyne, Namenda, Exelon and Namzaric. The available medicines do not cure Alzheimers disease. Instead, they temporarily lessen the symptoms of the disease such as declines in memory, language, and problem-solving skills.. The Byrd Alzheimers Institute treated 3,000 people for Alzheimers disease last year, said Amanda Smith, the institutes director of clinical research. Also, the institute is participating in more than 12 active clinical trials, partnering with the National Institutes of Health and pharmaceutical companies. Five of the clinical trials are currently enrolling patients, she said. Meanwhile, Kang said in the past, clinical trials were designed around people with dementia, in part to help those who needed it. But Kang said researchers didnt fully understand that any amount of drugŽ isnt going to bring the brain back. But we know better now,Ž he said, explaining that trials now focus on prevention and are designed for patients who have warning signs.TREATFROM PAGE 1symptoms strike. Acidic foods, chocolate, onions, carbonated beverages, and caffeinated beverages also may trigger GERD. €Fasting before bedtime. Avoid eating food and consuming beverages two to three hours before bedtime. €Lose weight. According to the Center for Esophageal Motility Disorders at Vanderbilt University, obesity is the leading cause of GERD. Extra stomach fat puts pressure on the abdomen, pushing gastric acids into the esophagus. Losing weight can reduce this pressure. €Eat small meals. Rather than eating a few big meals, eat small meals throughout the day. €Try natural herbs. WebMD says that some natural GERD remedies contain German chamomile, lemon balm, licorice, milk thistle, and angelica. Also, melatonin, a supplement used as a sleep aid, has been suggested to help relieve heartburn. But the research is conflicting as to whether melatonin is effective. Always discuss supplement use with a doctor prior to starting a regimen. €Drink low-fat milk. Milk may temporarily buffer stomach acid, but high-fat milk may stimulate the stomach to produce more acid. €Chew gum. Chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva, which can be an acid buffer, offers WebMD. Chewing gum also results in more swallowing, which can force acids out of the esophagus. €Quit smoking. Some studies indicate nicotine relaxes the muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter, the flap that blocks stomach acid from coming into the esophagus. €Stay upright. Stay upright after eating a meal for at least three hours. In bed, sleep on a slight angle by raising the head of the bed a few inches.GERDFROM PAGE 1Swimmers ear: Common prevention tipsOtitis Externa, commonly referred to as swimmers ear, is an infection of the ear canal caused by bacteria or fungi. It is most commonly found in children or adults who spend a lot of time in water, more speci“cally lakes, canals or ocean water, but it can occur in pools and spas as well. The moisture irritates the canal, causing breakdown of the skin which allows bacteria and fungi to invade and grow. The fact to remember though is that one does not have to swim in order to get swimmers ear „ anything that causes a break in the skin of the ear canal can lead to an infection. Dry skin, scratching the ear canal, vigorous ear cleaning with cotton-tipped applicators, or inserting foreign objects can all increase the risk of developing Otitis Externa. Furthermore, if a person is suffering from a middle ear infection, pus collected in the middle ear can drain into the ear canal through a hole in the eardrum and cause the infection as well. The most common symptom of Otitis Externa is ear pain, which can be severe and is more intense when the outer part of the ear is pulled or pressed on. Some people experience an internal itch in the canal prior to the pain, so the important thing to remember when the itch occurs is that scratching with your “nger or a foreign body can either cause or increase the infection. Signs of infection include swelling of the canal causing a full or uncomfortable feeling in the ear, redness or swelling of the outer ear, discharge from the ear and enlarged lymph nodes. The discharge will usually starts clear and then turn cloudy, yellowish, and pus-like. A persons hearing might also be temporarily affected if pus or swelling of the canal blocks the passage of sound into the ear. Fever isnt typical in most cases, and Otitis Externa is not contagious. Prevention is the key! Using over-the-counter drops of a dilute solution of acetic acid or alcohol in the ears after swimming can help prevent Otitis Externa, especially if a child is prone to the infection. These drops are available at most pharmacies and should only be used in kids who do not have ear tubes or a hole in the eardrum. Also, after time in the water, kids should gently dry their ears with a towel and help water run out of their ears by turning their heads to the side. Otitis Externa should be treated by a doctor. If left untreated, the ear pain will get worse and the infection may spread. To help relieve the pain until your child sees the doctor, you can place a warm washcloth or heating pad against the affected ear. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen may also ease discomfort. Its important to keep water out of your childs ear during the entire course of treatment. A shower cap offers protection while showering or bathing, and your doctor may also recommend earplugs. Treatment of Otitis Externa is simple. Your doctor will prescribe ear drops that contain antibiotics to “ght the infection. For more severe infections, oral antibiotics also may be given, and the doctor may order a culture of some of the discharge from the ear to help identify which bacteria or fungi is causing the infection. Once treatment has begun, your child will start to feel better in a few days and infection typically lasts seven to 10 days once the medication is started. Denise Palacios is a physician assistant-certi“ed. ColumnistDENISE PALACIOS blood pressure medication status, to calculate individuals risk of having a heart attack or stroke within the next 10 years. The UF study is the “rst to apply the tool on a population basis to identify groups, based on age, race and gender, that might be at high risk. For the study, researchers analyzed data for the years 1999 to 2014 from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a nationally representative study that collects data from a combination of interviews, physical examinations and laboratory tests. They calculated the ASCVD risk score for participants ages 40 to 79 who did not have a previous diagnosis of coronary heart disease, stroke or heart attack. A score of 7.5 percent or higher is considered high risk. The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association recommend drug therapy and lifestyle changes for people who score a 7.5 percent or higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke within 10 years. The UF researchers found that non-Hispanic black men experienced a signi“cant increase in risk during the 15-year period they examined, rising from 53.5 percent to 65 percent. In comparison, the prevalence of high cardiovascular disease risk among white men was 44.5 percent in 1999 and 48.2 percent in 2014. Experts dont know how frequently physicians use the ASCVD in clinical practice, Park said. However, it is known that risk scores are generally underutilized and vary between general practitioners and subspecialists,Ž she said. Mainous said the ASCVD risk score should be better integrated into clinical practice. It is easy to use, available for free online and gives physicians an accurate assessment of risk without having to judge a patients risk based on their own calculation of individual risk factors. Using validated, multivariable risk scores in practice is the best way to understand your patient population and who is at risk,Ž said Mainous, the Florida Blue endowed chair of health administration. Physicians need to use these tools and patients need to know what their risk score is.ŽRISKFROM PAGE 4 According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the United States. Roughly 40 million adults in the United States, or 18 percent of the countrys population, has an anxiety disorder. Developing from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events, anxiety disorders are highly treatable. Unfortunately, the ADAA notes that less than 40 percent of those suffering from anxiety disorders receive treatment. Treatment of anxiety disorders can be highly effective and can even help people deal with other disorders, as the ADAA says nearly one-half of people diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. People living with anxiety disorders who seek treatment may find they also are suffering from depression, compelling them to receive treatment for that disorder as well and further improving their quality of life.

Advocates say a growing number of American children are dropping out of Medicaid and other government programs because their parents are not citizens. Marlene is an undocumented resident of Texas and has two children who are U.S. citizens who qualify for Medicaid, the federal-state program for low-income people. One of her children has some disabilities. My son is receiving speech therapy,Ž she said in Spanish. But its been dif“cult.Ž It was a long journey to get the right evaluations and diagnoses, and her son is “nally making progress, Marlene said. But she braces for a day when he might have to do without this therapy and others that are paid for through Medicaid. Because shes undocumented, shes extremely nervous about “lling out applications for government programs like this. Already, she has decided to stop receiving food stamps, now known as SNAP, which her children, as citizens, are entitled to based on the familys income. She dropped it because the application to receive those bene“ts changed, she said. They are asking a lot of questions,Ž she said. They are investigating ones life from head to toe.Ž Marlene said she was nervous, in particular, about being asked to provide years of pay stubs and other eligibility requirements she had not experienced before. Marlene said the application alone made her sick from stress.Ž Repeated calls and emails to Texas health of“cials to ask about the changes in the bene“ts application process went unanswered. Health care groups say theyve observed other immigrant families making similar choices, and they think it will accelerate if a proposed change to green card eligibility becomes law. Under the proposed change, if family members receive government services „ even if those family members are citizens „ it would ding the applicants chances of approval for permanent residency. We are seeing families having to make this impossible choice,Ž said Maria Hernandez, the founder of Vela, a nonpro“t in Austin that helps parents who have children with disabilities. Hernandez instructs parents how to advocate for their children and how to “nd the appropriate health care and therapies for their kids, and helps them “nd community support, among other things. She conducts many of these classes in what used to be an elementary school on the east side of Austin. We are working with families who the parents are immigrants but the children are born here,Ž Hernandez said. Parents tell Hernandez they feel like they cant risk any attention from the government, even if that means losing badly needed bene“ts for their kids.Fearing deportation, parents ending kidshealth benefits KAISER HEALTH NEWS

The “ndings are yet another indicator of the range of diseases that can be caused by mosquito bites in Florida, in keeping with a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that highlighted the almost doubling of vector-borne disease cases in the United States since the early 2000s. Although the virus has never previously been found in humans, the infection may actually be fairly common in North Florida,Ž said J. Glenn Morris, director of the UF Emerging Pathogens Institute and corresponding author of the report on the virus published June 9 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. Its one of these instances where if you dont know to look for something, you dont “nd it,Ž he added. The virus, called Keystone virusŽ after the location in the Tampa Bay area where it was initially identi“ed in 1964, has been found in animal populations along coastal regions stretching from Texas to the Chesapeake Bay. While there were no reports of human infection until now, human infection has long been suspected. A 1972 article in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene reported Keystone virus antibodies in 19 to 21 percent of the people tested in the Tampa Bay region. The new report, titled Keystone Virus Isolated from a Florida Teenager with Rash and Subjective Fever: Another Endemic Arbovirus in the Southeastern United States?,Ž says a teenage boy went into an urgent care clinic in North Central Florida with a rash and fever symptoms in August 2016, during the Zika virus epidemic in Florida and the Caribbean. Because of concerns about Zika, laboratory samples were collected from the patient; however, all studies were negative for Zika or related viruses. Unexpectedly, UF researchers did “nd Keystone virus when they did viral cultures from the patient samples. Although the patient did not report symptoms of encephalitis, researchers report that the virus grew well in Neuro2A cell cultures. Neuro-2A cells are mouse brain cells, and the ability of the virus to grow in these cells suggests that Keystone virus can infect brain cells, and may pose a risk for brain infections. This virus is part of a group commonly known as the California serogroup of viruses,Ž said John Lednicky, Ph.D., a research professor in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions department of environmental and global health and a member of the Emerging Pathogens Institute. Lednicky is the “rst author of the report. These viruses are known to cause encephalitis in several species, including humans,Ž he added.UF HEALTH NEWS


B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 2, 2018 Experience Yogas healing breathThe “rst independence of our life begins with our “rst breath. As we grow, we become more conscious of our breathing when we say, we are out of breath,Ž after strenuous exercise, lifting, running, walking, swimming. As we perform activities, our breath is more fully realized and we focus on deeper breathing. We often use the phrase, the breath of life.Ž In Yoga, we refer to deep breathing when performing postures using the healing breath.Ž There is a reason. Seven time Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzeneger, says visualizing and concentrating on the goals you desire to manifest in the body depends on a practice to make the muscles respond to a speci“c purpose which is heightened by uncommon resolve.Ž In Yoga, the healing breath brings the ”ow of oxygen into the muscles and takes concentration to send the oxygenated blood into tightened places. This practice takes purposeful focus as Schwarzeneger stresses visualizing the muscles growing and actualizing what the mind is telling the muscles to do. In Yoga practice, the mind prepares the body by engaging the breath through deep inhales and exhales through the nose. We call deep breathing in Yoga, the healing breath,Ž which means actualizing the image in our thoughts of the muscles, organs and tissues functioning in concert and at their maximum capacity. The healing breath is not strenuous as it is part of the Yoga body ”ow that rejuvenates and enlivens the body through the slow movement, breathing and holding postures with concentration to eliminate body toxins and oxygenate the blood. Lets practice: 1. Stand tall with feet shoulder width apart, toes pointed straight forward, arms lengthened by the sides and a straight back, eyes closed. 2.Inhaling deeply through the nose, hold the breath for a count of three as you pull the breath through the top of the head then deeply exhaling through the nose. Take three regular breaths. 3.This time as you inhale deeply, visualize the healing breath traveling in the blood to the muscles, tissues and organs. Then, begin to deeply exhale through the nose and visualize the muscles, tissues and organs releasing tension. You have now learned the simple ”ow of the healing breath to rejuvenate the body and con“dence and calmness.YOGA FOR LIFENANCY DALE SUMMER YOGA CLASSES:Every Friday 5:30 p.m. at Golds Gym, Sebring NEW CLASSES: YMCA, Tuesdays/Thursdays, 10 to 11 a.m., Sebring COURTESY PHOTOYoga teacher Nancy Dale shows the extended right angleŽ pose.

The News Wire Monday, July 2, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Toy Story Land opening at Disney in FloridaSee page 8 AP FILE PHOTOIn this May 31 le photo, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during a news conference in Ottawa, Ontario. Canada announced Friday, June 29, billions of dollars in retaliatory taris against the U.S. in response to the Trump administrations duties on Canadian steel and aluminum, saying Friday it wont back down. OTTAWA, Ontario „ Canada began imposing tariffs Sunday on $12.6 billion in U.S. goods as retaliation for the Trump administrations new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States. Some U.S. products, mostly steel and iron, face 25 percent tariffs, the same penalty the United States slapped on imported steel at the end of May. Other U.S. imports, from ketchup to pizza to dishwasher detergent, will face a 10 percent tariff at the Canadian border, the same as Americas tax on imported aluminum. Trump had enraged Canada and other U.S. allies by declaring imported steel and aluminum a threat to Americas national security and therefore a legitimate target for U.S. tariffs. Canada is the United States second-biggest trading partner in goods, just behind China. Speaking Sunday in Leamington, Ontario, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau thanked Canadians for standing united against President Donald Trumps sanctions. He urged Canadians to make their choices accordinglyŽ in considering whether to buy American products. The selection of Leamington, known as Canadas tomato capital, was no accident. The town is home to a food-processing plant that supplies tomato paste and other products to Frenchs, a major competitor of Kraft Heinz. Heinz left Canada and sold its Leamington plant in 2014, after 105 years of Canadian operations. The new Canadian tariffs, which took effect at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, are hitting a long list of U.S. consumer goods, including ketchup and other Kraft Heinz products. As part of his combative America First approach, Trump has repeatedly attacked the trade policies of the United States northern neighbor, citing Canadas triple-digit tariffs on dairy products, which account for only about 0.1 percent of U.S.-Canada trade. The United States, in fact, last year enjoyed a $2.8 billion overall trade surplus with Canada. Trump has also tried to pressure Canada and Mexico into agreeing to rewrite the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement to shift more auto production and investment to the United States. But that effort has stalled, and Trump said Sunday that he didnt expect a deal that he could support until after the U.S. midterm elections in November.Canada tariffs on US goods from ketchup to lawn mowers beginBy PAUL WISEMAN and TRACEY LINDEMANASSOCIATED PRESSKABUL, Afghanistan „ A suicide bomber targeted a group of Sikhs and Hindus on their way to meet Afghanistans president in the eastern city of Jalalabad on Sunday, killing at least 19 people. Inamullah Miakhail, spokesperson for the provincial hospital in Nangarhar, said that 17 out of 19 dead in the attack are from the minority Sikh and Hindu community. Miakhail added that at least 10 of 20 wounded were also from the same minority community and are undergoing treatment at a Jalalabad hospital. Narendr Singh, one of the wounded Sikh from Sundays attack, con“rmed to The Associated Press by phone from his hospital bed in Jalalabad that the attack targeted their convoy. Attahullah Khogyani, spokesperson for the provincial governor, said that a number of and shops vehicles caught “re as result of the attack. Gen. Ghulam Sanayee Stanekzai, Nangarhars police chief, said that the attacker targeted the group on its way to the governors compound. They had planned to meet with President Ashraf Ghani, who was visiting the region on Sunday. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Taliban and an Islamic State af“liate are active in the province. Sikhs and Hindus have long suffered widespread discrimination in the conservative Muslim country and been targeted by Islamic extremists. Today the community is comprised of only around 1,000 people. Under Taliban rule Bomber targets Sikhs, Hindus in Afghanistan; 19 deadASSOCIATED PRESSMCALLEN, Texas „ Border Patrol arrests fell sharply in June to the lowest level since February, according to a U.S. of“cial, ending a streak of four straight monthly increases. The drop may re”ect seasonal trends or it could signal that President Donald Trumps zero-toleranceŽ policy to criminally prosecute every adult who enters the country illegally is having a deterrent effect. The agency made 34,057 arrests on the border with Mexico during June, down 16 percent from 40,344 in May, according to the of“cial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the numbers are not yet intended for public release. The June tally is preliminary and subject to change. Arrests were still more than double from 16,077 in June 2017, but the sharp decline from spring could undercut the Trump administrations narrative of a border in crisis. Customs and Border Protection, which includes the Border Patrol, declined to comment on the numbers, saying it doesnt discuss them as a matter of policy until public release to ensure consistency and accuracy.Ž The administration announced in early May that it was prosecuting every illegal entry, including adults who came with their children. The BOISE, Idaho „ A man who was recently asked to leave a Boise apartment complex is suspected of going on a stabbing rampage there that injured nine people, including six children, police said Sunday. Four of the victims have life-threatening injuries. Timmy Kinner, 30, is facing nine counts of aggravated battery and six counts of injury to a child for the late Saturday violence. The Boise Police Department said they believe Kinner, from Los Angeles, was a temporary resident of the apartment complex but had been asked to leave on Friday. The complex houses many resettled refugee families, but Kinner is not a refugee. Police said they do not yet have an exact motive. Esrom Habte, 12, and Fathi Mahamoud, 11, were playing in the grass behind their apartment when the attack began. It was kind of scary because we were outside,Ž Habte told news media as his mother looked on. He was chasing people and stabbing people.Ž We saw him saying bad words and stabbing a grown-up really hard and a lot of times,Ž Habte said. The children ran into an apartment and hid in a closet with other children until police told them it was safe to come out, he said. On Sunday, colorful bouquets rested just outside crime scene tape. This incident is not a representation of our community but a single evil individual who attacked people without provocation that we are aware of at this time,Ž Bones said during a press conference Saturday night. Police found stabbing victims both inside the complex and in the parking lot; Kinner was arrested a short distance away. Bones said the attack resulted in the most victims in a single incident in Boise Police Department history. As you can imagine, the Wylie Street Apartment and our community is reeling from this attack,Ž he said.Border Patrol arrests dropped sharply in June6 children among 9 injured inIdaho mass stabbingBy ELLIOT SPAGATASSOCIATED PRESSBy REBECCA BOONEASSOCIATED PRESS ARRESTS | 3 BOMBER | 3 AP PHOTOTimmy Kinner, 30, is seen in a July 1 booking photo provided by the Ada County Sheris Oce.AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 11, 2017, photo, a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent escorts an immigrant suspected of crossing into the United States illegally along the Rio Grande near Granjeno, Texas.

PARIS „ A notorious French criminal serving 25 years for murder made an audacious escape from prison Sunday after a helicopter carrying several heavily armed commandos landed in a courtyard, freed him from a visiting room and carried him away. It was the second daring escape by Redoine Faid, who once blasted his way out of a different prison with explosives hidden in tissue packs. His latest escape, from Reau Prison, took only a few minutes,Ž Frances Justice Ministry said. Unarmed guards said they could do nothing to prevent it. Dressed all in black, two commandos wearing balaclavas and police armbands entered the prison to look for Faid. They used a grinding machine to open the door to the visiting room, Martial Delabroye, a representative of the guards union, told BFM television. The commandos set off smoke canisters to hide from video cameras, and the helicopter touched down in the only part of the complex that was not covered by anti-helicopter netting, said another union member, Loic Delbroc. When the chopper arrived, Faid was meeting with his brother in the visiting room. A third commando was holding the pilot at gunpoint, union members said. French media reported that the three men took the pilot hostage at a flying club in the Paris region. He was later released with no physical injuries. The helicopter was found burned in the town of Garges-lesGonesse, in the northern suburbs of Paris. Faid was believed to have left by car along with his accomplices. French prosecutors opened an investigation into the escape. Investigators were questioning Faids brother on Sunday afternoon. The 46-year-old Faid was serving time for the 2010 death of a young police officer killed during a botched robbery. In the 1990s, he led a gang involved in robbing banks and armored vans. He was arrested in 1998 after three years on the run in Switzerland and Israel, according to French media reports. Faid was freed in 2009 after serving 10 years. At the time, he swore that he had turned his life around, writing a confessional book about his life of crime and going on an extensive media tour in 2010. Still, he was the suspected mastermind of the attempted armed robbery in 2010 that led to a high-speed chase and a shootout with police that killed 26-yearold Aurelie Fouquet. He was arrested in 2011. MEXICO CITY „ Mexicans voted Sunday in national elections that were widely expected to result in a profound shift in the countrys political direction. Police were out in force near voting booths set up in the capital and elsewhere. During the campaigns, dozens of candidates were killed, mostly in provincial areas where organized crime is in control. Polls showed a seemingly insurmountable 20-point lead for presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who ran under the banner of his own political party, the National Regeneration Movement, known as Morena. The movement began four years ago after Lopez Obrador „ a veteran politician and former mayor of Mexico City „ split from the center-left party that he once headed. Lopez Obradors election could result in a sea change in Mexican politics, experts say, and also could affect Mexicos relations with the United States. Lopez Obrador, who lost the past two presidential elections, has championed a leftist, populist agenda that has resonated in a nation where many are fed up with corruption, rising crime and a slumping economy. The political maverick has vowed to smash the ma“a of power,Ž his depiction of the elite clique of political parties and business interests that have long dominated Mexico. His anti-status quo message has overwhelmed similar vows of changeŽ from the presidential aspirants from more traditional parties. Lopez Obrador has consistently rejected opposition characterizations of him as Mexicos version of Hugo Chavez „ the late Venezuelan leftist leader and longtime U.S. antagonist. Lopez Obrador has said he favors a new free-trade agreement with the United States and has reassured business interests that he will protect investments. For almost a century, Mexican presidents have come either the long-dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which emerged from the Mexican Revolution to rule the country in autocratic fashion for more than seven decades; and the center-right National Action Party, which won the presidency from the PRI in elections 2000 and 2006. The current president, Enrique Pena Nieto, standard-bearer of the PRI, was barred by term limits from running for re-election. His time in of“ce has been widely seen as ineffective, and he has had historically low approval ratings. The seemingly inevitability of Lopez Obradors victory has left the principal candidates from Mexicos traditional parties „ the PRI and the National Action Party „ in what many here have called a race for second place. The PRI candidate, Jose Antonio Meade, 49, a lawyer and Yale-educated economist, was named the ruling party nominee even though he was not a party member. The idea was to put forward a candidate not tarnished with the PRIs history of corruption and the current administrations legacy of ineffectiveness. The plan doesnt appear to have worked. Meade, a prototypical technocrat with a broad grasp of the issues, has shown little spark and seems to lack political charisma. His All for MexicoŽ coalition, led by the PRI, could be headed for a humiliating third-place “nish, despite the massive resources of the PRI, its considerable get-out-the-vote expertise and the partys legendary pro“ciency at what is referred to here as electoral alchemyŽ „ the ability to transform losing candidates into winners through various unsavory means, like ballot-box stuf“ng and a large turnout of cemetery-dwellers. Anaya, the right-center National Action Party candidate, failed to gain traction after an early debate performance seemed to bolster his standing. Allegations of money-laundering „ denied by the candidate „ appear to have hurt Anaya. His upper-class background, bossy disposition and often-acerbic campaign tactics dont appear to have endeared him to the multitudes of mostly poor and working-class Mexican voters. Also Sunday, Mexicans were to elect a new lower-house Chamber of Deputies, 128 members of the Senate and for thousands of state and municipal of“cials.Helicopter carrying commandos frees notorious French inmateMexicans vote in pivotal national electionsBy SYLVIE CORBETASSOCIATED PRESSBy PATRICK J.

In 1881 President James A. Gareld was shot by Charles J. Guiteau at the Washington railroad station; Gareld died the following September. (Guiteau was hanged in June 1882.) In 1892 the Populist Party (also known as the Peoples Party) opened its rst national convention in Omaha, Nebraska. In 1917 rioting erupted in East St. Louis, Illinois, as white mobs attacked black residents; nearly 50 people, mostly blacks, are believed to have died in the violence. In 1926 the United States Army Air Corps was created. In 1955 The Lawrence Welk ShowŽ premiered on ABC-TV under its original title, The Dodge Dancing Party.Ž In 1961 author Ernest Hemingway shot himself to death at his home in Ketchum, Idaho. In 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law a sweeping civil rights bill passed by Congress. In 1977 Russian-American author Vladimir Nabokov, 78, died in Montreux, Switzerland. In 1987 18 Mexican immigrants were found dead inside a locked boxcar near Sierra Blanca, Texas, in what authorities called a botched smuggling attempt; a 19th man survived.

Bible verse Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.Ž „ Psalms 62:10 Material prosperity can sometimes become an obstacle to your well-being. Dont put your trust in money, but in the Lord. separation of more than 2,000 children from their parents sparked an international outcry and Trump reversed course on June 20, ordering that families should stay together. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan told agents to temporarily stop referring illegal entry arrests to the Justice Department for prosecution if they involve parents unless they had a criminal history or the childs welfare was in question. His edict came within hoursŽ of Trumps directive to avoid splitting families. McAleenan told reporters last week that border arrests were trending lower in June but said he wouldnt provide numbers until their public release in early July. I believe the focus on border enforcement has had an impact on the crossings,Ž McAleenan said. Rising temperatures could also be a major in”uence, discouraging people from walking in the scorching and potentially lethal heat in much of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Arrests fell from May to June in four of the previous “ve years, last year being the exception. Still, the monthto-month percentage decline is notable. It fell in the low single digits in 2014 amid a major surge in illegal crossings and in 2015. Declines approached 20 percent in 2016 and 2013. The numbers do not reflect activity at official crossings. The Border Patrol polices between ports of entry, not at them.ARRESTSFROM PAGE 1in the late 1990s, they were told to identify themselves by wearing yellow armbands, but the dictate was not wholly enforced. In recent years, large numbers of Sikhs and Hindus have sought asylum in India, which has a Hindu majority and a large Sikh population. In a separate incident, at least 110 people have been hospitalized after drinking from a river in the northern Parwan province, an of“cial said. Abdul Khalil Farhangi, the head of the main hospital in Charakar, the provincial capital, said it was not clear what caused them to become ill. The symptoms included vomiting and headaches. Afghanistans infrastructure has suffered from decades of war, and many rural communities do not have access to electricity or clean running water.BOMBERFROM PAGE 1 On a recent Friday, a group of visitors from San Diego that included attorneys and a federal judge sat in a Tucson, Arizona, courtroom and watched as illegal border entry cases were adjudicated from start to “nish in a matter of hours. Dozens of unauthorized immigrants, wearing the same clothes they were arrested in at the border just a day or two earlier, pleaded guilty and were sentenced by a rotating panel of judges showing off their individual styles, according to a report in the Arizona Daily Star. The San Diego delegation was taking notes on Tucsons program „ known there and in other Southwest border cities as Operation Streamline „ because a similar fast-track system is headed to California to handle the burgeoning caseload under the Trump administrations zero toleranceŽ crackdown on illegal immigration. The program is tentatively set to begin in San Diego federal court July 9, according to attorneys. Operation Streamline was introduced by the Border Patrol in Texas in 2005 under a different zero-tolerance policy. The program has survived in a few districts, with the overriding goal to prosecute a larger number of people crossing the border illegally by speeding up the process. It was not used in California. Supporters say criminally prosecuting illegal border crossings is as a stronger deterrent than just civil deportations. Critics claim the expedited program jeopardizes defendants right to due process and have called it assembly line justice.Ž Exactly how a fast-track program will work in San Diego is still unclear. A committee including federal judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys has been working out the details. We are committed to securing the border by enforcing criminal immigration laws in a way that respects due process and the dignity of all involved,Ž said Kelly Thornton, a spokesperson for the U.S. attorneys of“ce. We are working collaboratively with the court, the defense bar and law enforcement to set up a process that accomplishes both goals.Ž A woman named Mirian and her 18-month-old son reached Brownsville, Texas, early this year after ”eeing Honduras, where the military had tear-gassed their home. She made her way to a port of entry and asked for asylum, according to court records. Mirian had her identi“cation, her sons birth certificate, which listed her as his mother, his hospital birth record and his vaccination records. Border of“cers took the records, and then told her they would be taking her boy, she said in a sworn court declaration. They walked her out to a government car, told her to put him in a car seat and closed the door. It was three months before they were reunited. The Trump administrations zero-toleranceŽ policy of criminally charging people who cross the border illegally led to thousands of children being separated from their parents. But the practice of separating families appears to have begun accelerating last year, long before zero tolerance was announced in the spring. Among those cases, according to records and interviews, are many that happened at ports of entry. Administration of“cials have said repeatedly that asylum seekers who dont want to be separated from their children should present themselves at a port of entry. Doing so is the legal way to ask for asylum, they said. But court “lings describe numerous cases in recent months in which families were separated after going to a port of entry to ask for asylum. It happened even when asylum seekers carried records, such as birth certi“cates or hospital documents, listing them as the parents of their children, according to interviews and court records. While border of“cials have long had a policy of separating children when their safety might be in question, lawyers and advocates say they began seeing a signi“cant increase last year in of“cials separating children from their parents who asked for asylum, without clear reasons. In a ruling last week ordering the reuni“cation of families in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, U.S. District Judge Dana M. Sabraw in San Diego wrote that there had been a casual, if not deliberate, separation of families that lawfully present at the port of entry, not just those who cross into the country illegally.Ž Nicole Ramos, an attorney who provides legal help to asylum seekers in Tijuana, Mexico, said she started to see an increase in family separations at ports of entry in May 2017. Ramos has “led eight complaints related to the issue in recent months with the Department of Homeland Securitys Of“ce for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. Separations at ports of entry have happened even when families have presented suf“cient evidence of parentage, even where they do not have signs of neglect or abuse even when the child is able to speak for themselves and sayŽ this is my parent, Ramos said. She said the problem has been compounded by long waits at ports of entry. In some cases, families have been waited waiting for weeks to claim asylum at a border crossing. Lee Gelernt, the lead attorney in the ACLUs case challenging family separations, said the government has justi“ed taking children in some cases by saying there was concern a child was with a smuggler. In one case, he said, the little girl was screaming Mommy, Mommy, dont let them take me away. Anyone would have known it was not a smuggler.Ž In an email, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Daniel Hetlage referred to a Department of Homeland Security fact sheet, which says it is a mythŽ that families asking for asylum legally at ports of entry are separated. The fact sheet says DHS will separate in three circumstances: 1) when DHS is unable to determine the familial relationship; 2) when DHS determines that a child may be at risk with the parent or legal guardian; or 3) when the parent or legal guardian is referred for criminal prosecution.Ž In a federal court declaration, Marc W. Sanders, acting director of Homeland Securitys Human Smuggling Cell, argued that releasing all families together can bolster human smuggling and increase illegal immigration. Once such a requirement is publicized it is likely to be a pull factor that contributes to further illicit migration to the United States,Ž he wrote. Ramos said she worries that despite President Donald Trumps June 20 order to end family separations, border of“cials will continue separating families without due process by saying that a parent is a danger to the child or is not actually the parent. They were doing it before the zero-tolerance policy and theyre going to keep doing it,Ž she said. They will say the parent presented a security risk without well-articulated reasons as to what that security risk was.Ž It is unclear how often families have been separated at ports of entry. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Carlos Diaz said the agency did not have data on such separations. But if a family asks for asylum at a port of entry, it is highly likely that the family will stay together through the process,Ž Diaz added. Diaz referred questions to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. Of“cials there referred a reporter back to Customs and Border Protection. Of“cials at the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency in charge of children who are separated from their parents, said only that the number of children in its care is 11,800. This includes children who crossed the border without parents as well as those separated from their parents. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) „ A federal control board has approved its version of a budget for Puerto Ricos government, a move many expect will lead to a court battle as the U.S. territory “ghts austerity measures it believes will worsen an 11-year recession. The board said it approved an $8.76 billion budget that became effective Sunday after local legislators failed to submit a proposed budget by the June 30 deadline that complies with a recently approved “scal plan. The approved budget cuts government spending by $345 million, including a $24 million cut for the legislature, which will now operate with $111 million for “scal year 2019. The budget complies with a “scal plan that calls for austerity measures, including a sharp increase in tuition at Puerto Ricos largest public university and deep cuts to employees vacation and sick days. The course has been set, and although it will be challenging, we cannot afford to veer off,Ž board chairman Jose Carrion said in a statement. Puerto Rico has been trying to restructure a portion of its $70 billion public debt load as it struggles to recover from Hurricane Maria. More than 2,000 customers remain in the dark more than nine months after the Category 4 storm hit Puerto Rico, causing an estimated more than $100 billion in damage. A spokesperson for Gov. Ricardo Rossello did not return a message for comment. The disagreement over the budget is the latest confrontation between Puerto Rico of“cials and a board that oversees the islands “nances. Rossello had recently told the board that in exchange for certain concessions, his administration would agree to at-will employment, which means private employers would be able to dismiss workers at any time without having to prove just cause. But legislators rejected the measure, which the board had said would have helped stimulate the islands economy by attracting more investors. As a result, the board on Friday said it would scrap an annual Christmas bonus for all government employees starting next “scal year, eliminate a $25 million scholarship fund for Puerto Ricos largest public university, and cancel a $50 million annual fund for cities and towns struggling in Marias aftermath.Fast-tracking of illegal border crossing cases coming to California soon Separating families at the border was more widespread, began earlier, records showBoard approves budget after Puerto Rico fails to submit oneBy KRISTINA DAVISSAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNEBy PALOMA ESQUIVEL and BRITTNY MEIJALOS ANGELES TIMES FROM PAGE ONE


Page 4 The Sun / Monday, July 2, 2018 HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATION CEO Musk: Tesla hits weekly goal of making 5,000 Model 3s New tropical storm off Mexican Pacific Indiana police say they seized Trump-shaped ecstasy pills Kentucky man sentenced for helping lawyer flee country 3.1 magnitude earthquake recorded in central Oklahoma Newspaper says it received threats following shooting(AP) „ Electric car maker Tesla Inc. has delivered on its CEOs promise to build a lower-priced car at a rate of 5,000 per week by the end of June. CEO Elon Musk sent an email to company employees Sunday praising them for producing 5,000 Model 3s, a compact car thats designed to shift Tesla from a niche manufacturer to a mainstream automaker. Musk also said the company had cranked out a combined 2,000 of Model S sedans and Model X sport-utility vehicles, bringing overall production to a record 7,000 for the week. We did it!Ž Musk wrote. What an incredible job by an amazing team.Ž The email was reported by the website Electrek, and the company con“rmed its authenticity. Last summer, when the “rst Model 3s began rolling off the assembly line, Musk promised to build 5,000 per week by December and 10,000 per week in 2018. But he also warned at the time that Tesla was entering at least six months of manufacturing hellŽ as it tried to hit the targets. Model 3 sales are critical to Teslas future. The company has never posted a full-year pro“t, and it burned through more than $1 billion in cash in the “rst quarter. Wall Street investors, who have pushed the companys stock beyond $340 per share, are growing impatient with the losses. MEXICO CITY (AP) „ A new tropical storm formed well-off Mexicos Paci“c Coast on Sunday and forecasters said it could grow into a major hurricane, though it poses little threat to land. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Fabio had winds of 50 mph while being centered about 525 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo in Mexico. It was heading west-northwest at 13 mph. Forecasters said Fabio could become a hurricane by Monday and a major hurricane with winds of about 115 mph on Wednesday before starting to weaken. PERU, Ind. (AP) „ Some drug traf“ckers appear to be using President Donald Trumps image to brand their illegal wares. An Indiana State Police news release about 129 arrests in a series of drug busts in northern Indiana includes a photo of what police describe as Trump-shaped ecstasy pills.Ž They are orange and stamped with a face. On the back are the words great again,Ž an apparent reference to Trumps campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.Ž Traf“ckers sometimes produce uniquely shaped or colored drugs as a marketing technique to encourage buyers to return for more. Fridays release doesnt provide details, including how many of the pills were seized. The six-day operation in June involved traf“c stops by state and city police, as well as sheriffs departments. LSD, cocaine and other drugs were also seized. LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) „ A Kentucky man has been sentenced to seven months in jail for assisting a lawyer who went on the run after pleading guilty in a $500 million Social Security fraud scheme. WYMT-TV reports 48-year-old Curtis Lee Wyatt of Raccoon, Kentucky, was sentenced Friday in federal court in Lexington for one count of conspiracy to escape from custody. Wyatt was given credit for three months served. An indictment alleged Wyatt opened a bank account the lawyer, Eric Conn, used to transfer money. Wyatt, who was Conns employee, also tested security at the Mexican border and bought a pickup truck for Conn. Conn was captured in December as he left a Pizza Hut in Honduras. Investigators say Conn was on home con“nement last June when he escaped by cutting an electronic monitoring device from his ankle. GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) „ The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1 magnitude earthquake has been recorded in central Oklahoma. There were no immediate reports of damage. The agency says the earthquake was recorded at 9:58 p.m. on Saturday, about 8 miles east of Guthrie. The temblor was recorded at a depth of nearly 5.5 miles. Thousands of earthquakes have been recorded in Oklahoma in recent years, with many linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. State regulators have directed several oil and gas producers in the state to close injection wells or reduce the volume of wastewater injections. ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) „ The Maryland newspaper where “ve people were killed by a gunman last week said it received death threats and emails celebrating the shootings following the attack.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) „ A longtime Iowa sportscaster has died in ”ash ”ooding in Des Moines amid heavy rain that forced the evacuation of some homes and businesses in one suburb. Police said 66-year-old Larry Cotlar died Saturday when he was swept away in ”oodwater after his van stalled on a ”ooded north Des Moines street. Cotlar had worked as the voice of Drake Universitys teams since 2005. Drake athletics director Brian Hardin said he respected Cotlars work and who he was. We all had the utmost respect „ not just for Larrys talent, but for the kind of quality person and colleague he was. Larry was loyal, passionate and tireless,Ž Hardin said. Witnesses told police Cotlar was swept away as he got out of his stalled van. His body was found nearly four hours later, several blocks away. The ”ooding was fueled by 3 to 8 inches of rain that fell across the Des Moines area Saturday night. Homes and businesses along Walnut Creek in the suburb of Clive had to be evacuated. Some streets remained blocked Sunday. The speed and how long that rain fell caught us by surprise,Ž Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said. In the suburb of Urbandale, residents of a duplex escaped shortly before an explosion from a ruptured gas line leveled their home after the basement ”ooded. It ”ushed me and my wife to the point we thought we were gone. We managed to get to the ceiling and get air,Ž Shane Rhoades told The Des Moines Register. My wife found a window over here and we swam out, got our three children out.Ž The area is getting some relief. The National Weather Service predicts that Thursday will be the next chance for rain. But rivers and reservoirs in the area are already full and may continue rising. The Army Corps of Engineers predicts that the reservoir that protects Des Moines from Des Moines River ”ooding will crest next weekend at a level above the lip of the concrete emergency spillway.

NATIONAL NEWSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps national security adviser said Sunday the U.S. has a plan that would lead to the dismantling of North Koreas nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in a year. John Bolton said top U.S. diplomat Mike Pompeo will be discussing that plan with North Korea in the near future. Bolton added that it would be to the Norths advantage to cooperate to see sanctions lifted quickly and aid from South Korea and Japan start to ”ow. Boltons remarks on CBS Face the NationŽ appeared to be the “rst time the Trump administration had publicly suggested a timeline for North Korea to ful“ll the commitment leader Kim Jong Un made at a summit with President Donald Trump last month for the complete denuclearizationŽ of the Korean Peninsula. Despite Trumps rosy post-summit declaration that the North no longer poses a nuclear threat, Washington and Pyongyang have yet to negotiate the terms under which it would relinquish the weapons that it developed to deter the U.S. Doubts over North Koreas intentions have deepened amid reports that it is continuing to produce “ssile material for weapons. The Washington Post on Saturday cited unnamed U.S. intelligence of“cials as saying that evidence collected since the June 12 summit in Singapore points to preparations to deceive the U.S. about the number of nuclear warheads in North Koreas arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make “ssile material for nuclear bombs. It said the “ndings support a new, previously undisclosed Defense Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea is unlikely to denuclearize. Bolton on Sunday declined to comment on intelligence matters. He said the administration was well-aware of North Koreas track record over the decades in dragging out negotiations with the U.S. to continue weapons development. We have developed a program. Im sure that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be discussing this with the North Koreans in the near future about really how to dismantle all of their WMD and ballistic missile programs in a year,Ž Bolton said. If they have the strategic decision already made to do that, and theyre cooperative, we can move very quickly,Ž he added. He said the one-year program the U.S. is proposing would cover all of the Norths chemical and biological weapons, nuclear programs and ballistic missiles. Pompeo has already visited Pyongyang twice since April to meet with Kim „ the “rst time when he was still director of the CIA „ and there are discussions about a possible third trip to North Korea late next week but such a visit has not yet been con“rmed. Pompeo spoke with the foreign ministers of China, Japan and South Korea in recent days about the situation with the North, according to the State Department, which has declined to comment on any upcoming travel. Pompeo did postpone plans to meet with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and their counterparts from India on July 6, citing unavoidable circumstances, which has fueled speculation he will make a third trip to Pyongyang.Bolton: US has plan to dismantle NK nuclear program in year AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 27 photo, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton listens to questions as he speaks to the media after his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Russia.Evacuations ordered as winds fuel Northern California firesGUINDA, Calif. (AP) „ Evacuations were ordered as dry, hot winds fueled a wild“re burning out of control Sunday in rural Northern California, sending a stream of smoke some 75 miles south into the San Francisco Bay Area. The fast-moving blaze that broke out Saturday in western Yolo County charred at least 34 square miles of dry brush and threatened more than two dozen structures in ranchland northwest of Sacramento. No injuries were reported and the exact number of people evacuated was unclear. There was no containment. Autumn Edens marveled as a huge plume blocked the sun while she drove to her job as manager of the Corner Store in Guinda, a town of about 250 people just north of the “re. You can see the smoke and you can see an orange-red glow from the ”ames. It looks like a movie,Ž she said. Ive never seen a “re like that up close and its an intense feeling.Ž It was one of two major wild“res in the northern part of the state, where temperatures were soaring, humidity was dropping and winds were steady. A blaze burning for several days to the west in Lake County jumped containment lines Saturday, prompting additional evacuation orders. That “re was more than 70 percent contained after charring about 22 square miles of brush and destroying at least 20 structures. Smoke from the Yolo County “re was contributing to poor air quality in Napa, Sonoma, San Mateo and San Francisco counties, according to the National Weather Service. The haze settling on areas to the south and west and rattled nerves near wine country communities that were devastated by deadly wild“res late last year. A lot of friends and family were texting today and saying they were having some PTSD,Ž said Savannah Kirtlink, who evacuated her Napa home during the blazes in December. She took photos of the smoke moving in this weekend and told KGO-TV she empathized with her neighbors to the north who were forced to ”ee their homes. Im imagining what theyre going through,Ž she said. A dusting of ash fell as far away as San Francisco, where tourists snapped pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge enveloped in an orange shroud of fog and smoke. Across the bridge in Marin County, some customers coughed as they stopped for gas at the Shell station in Sausalito, employee Sergio Garcia said. The sky is very dark, even in the middle of the day,Ž he said. Its a little scary.ŽBy MATTHEW PENNINGTONASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOFireghters scramble to stop the Pawnee re as it spots across Highway 20 near Clearlake Oaks, California, on Sunday. 2 0 1 8 0 7 0 2 w i r e 0 4 p d f 1 0 2 J u l 1 8 0 0 : 5 1 : 4 1


The Sun /Monday, July 2, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My whole family has heart problems. I'm 74 years old. My blood pressure has been high lately. Today it's 143/79. Some days 139/73. It's always dierent, but still high. I take 20 mg of lisinopril twice a day. Now I am taking 10 mg of amlodipine also. My doctor says there's nothing else he can do for me. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall and weigh 147 pounds. I'm going to Weight Watchers to lose weight. Should I contact a cardiologist? „ S.S. ANSWER: The goal of lowering blood pressure is to reduce the risk of adverse eects of high blood pressure, especially heart attack and stroke. The most recent study, which has changed the way many physicians practice, showed that lowering blood pressure to a goal of 120 systolic reduces the risk of these events and of overall death rates. Most experts would recommend a lower blood pressure goal than your current level. If you are having no side effects from the lisinopril and the amlodipine, and if the numbers you wrote are typical for you, then you have two options: additional (or dierent) medication, or an evaluation to look into why your blood pressure might be high. Common causes include obstructive sleep apnea, excess alcohol use and blockages in the arteries to the kidneys. There are many other uncommon causes, including tumors that make substances that increase blood pressure. I am confused why your doctor would say there's nothing more to do; it's likely that he didn't communicate as well as he could have. Adding a low-dose diuretic medication would be very common in this situation, and it may get your blood pressure to goal. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have arthritis (osteoarthritis) and also have a life-threatening allergy to aspirin/NSAIDS. I had anaphylaxis in response to ibuprofen. Are you aware of any non-NSAID arthritis drugs out there? „ S.S. ANSWER: Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction. It involves the release of many different substances into the blood by immune system cells in response to a specic chemical, which may come from food, medication or insect sting. Anaphylaxis brought on by ibuprofen is problematic because ibuprofen is in many different over-the-counter preparations. I am sure you have learned to carefully read labels to make sure you are not taking it in. A repeat exposure could be fatal. People with a history of anaphylaxis should have an emergency treatment plan, which may include an injector lled with epinephrine (adrenalin), which you should be sure has not expired. A relationship with an allergist is a good idea. When the cause of anaphylaxis is known (ibuprofen, in your case), then avoidance is paramount. Moreover, you need to avoid chemically related compounds. Naproxen, ketoprofen, urbiprofen and oxaprozin are all related NSAID arthritis drugs that are NOT safe for you. However, there are arthritis drugs that are chemically unrelated to ibuprofen, such as diclofenac, meloxicam and nabumetone. Those are likely to be safe for you. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is not an NSAID and though not as eective as NSAIDs, it still might be helpful. Non-traditional treatments for arthritis, such as topical medications and supplements, are somewhat better than placebo. Before taking medication, I would certainly urge you to discuss your case with an allergist, as reactions described as anaphylaxis may encompass a range of allergic and "pseudo-allergic" reactions.DEAR ABBY: My husband of 20 years has blindsided me by announcing he's leaving. Come to nd out he's "in love" with a co-worker and thinks they are soul mates. Our close friends and family know about the aair (and are dismayed), but our teenaged kids don't. He told them we simply grew apart. His suddenly leaving with no attempt to work on the marriage sends a confusing message. Is it best the kids don't know about her, or will it hurt them more if they nd out later? How do I talk to them about the commitment of marriage without criticizing him, and does that include protecting his lie? „ Confused In California DEAR CONFUSED: Your children are teenagers. Teenagers today are very wise in the ways of the world. They are also observant; when they visit their father at his place, they will draw their own conclusions. As to talking to them about the commitment of marriage, refrain from doing it when you are emotional, and leave out any reference to their father and his "soul mate" unless they bring it up. You have my sympathy. DEAR ABBY: Every year in my neighborhood, "lost dog" signs appear the day after the Fourth of July. Would you please print a reminder to dog owners that noise from reworks can cause pets to become so frightened they bolt from home and become lost. Keep your pets inside anytime you can hear reworks. On the Fourth, which is noisy all day, when my dogs have to go out, I go out WITH them. I want to be able to see them every second. Better safe than sorry. „ Pet Lover In Barnhart, Missouri DEAR PET LOVER: I'm sure my readers will be grateful for your reminder. And while we're on the subject of lost pets, this would be a good time to ensure your dog (or cat) is identied with a microchip or ID tag in case it does manage to get away from you. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about reworks on the Fourth of July: "Dear Heloise: The Fourth of July is almost here, and there will be reworks in most cities. Let the pros handle reworks, not teenagers with cherry bombs or recrackers that could cause injury. Every year, thousands of people show up at hospital emergency rooms with injuries from recrackers or even sparklers." „ James D. in Philadelphia James, here are a few additional rules: Never relight or handle reworks that haven't fully ignited. Never place part of your body over reworks when lighting the fuse. Keep a bucket of water or the hose handy when lighting reworks. Make sure reworks are legal in your area. Some states have banned sales of reworks. „ Heloise Finding new strategies for facing tough blood pressure Teens are kept in the dark about father's oce aair Having a blast this FourthHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. „ For children of the mid-1990s, Disneys new Toy Story Land offers the opportunity to visit the imaginary world they grew up in. For their parents, it brings back sweet memories of a magical time of toys and make-believe. And for everyone else, the new theme park land offers a whimsical experience from the moment a nearly 20-foot statue of Sheriff Woody welcomes guests as if they are honorary toys in Andys backyard. We are welcoming everyone who has ever dreamed of being a part of their own Toy Story,Ž said Bob Chapek, Disneys chairman of parks, experiences and consumer products, speaking Friday at an opening ceremony. The new 11-acre land inspired by the movie Toy StoryŽ opens to the public Saturday at Disneys Hollywood Studios just outside Orlando. Tim Allen, the voice of Buzz Lightyear in the “lms, made a surprise guest appearance at the Friday event. Somehow you never imagined you would be able to play in Andys backyard,Ž Allen said. This is just amazing.Ž The opening of Toy Story Land is one of the most anticipated events at U.S. theme parks this year.

In fact, he added, you are about the size of the Green Army Men.Ž The movies Green Army Men are called the Green Army Patrol here. They have been updated to be more inclusive and diverse „ including female characters. They also interact with guests throughout the park, saluting and even performing fun games like Sarge Says,Ž inspired by the classic childrens game Simon Says.Ž In addition to the rides and characters, the Woodys Lunchbox eatery offers some modern-day twists on classic foods. There is the threecheese grilled cheese sandwich, a brisket melt, old-fashioned soda ”oats and other refreshments which can be ordered from a walk-up window fashioned out of Andys vintage lunchbox and thermos. The park features primary colors and larger-than-life versions of classic toys like Rubiks Cube, colorful Cootie bugs, Scrabble letters, building blocks and Tinkertoys. There are also benches built from Lincoln Logs. We wanted to make this for all generations,Ž Minichiello said. As you walk through youll probably discover a lot of toys you played with as a child.Ž Theres a little bit of something for everyone, said Tom Vazzana, show director for Toy Story Land entertainment. Buzz and Woody and Jessie ... are out on the avenue,Ž interacting with guests, stopping for photo opportunities and signing autographs.

Monday, July 2, 2018 SPORTS € @SunCoastSportsINDEX | Lottery 2 | NHL 2 | NBA 2 | Tennis 3 | Pro Baseball 4 | Scoreboard 5 | World Cup 6 | Auto Racing 6 By GREG AUMANTampa Bay TimesTAMPA „ When the Lightning traded for defenseman Ryan McDonagh in February, the veteran defenseman found himself in a new locker room for the first time in eight years, unsure of what his new team would be like. The first impression was promising enough that both sides agreed Sunday to make this home, as the Lightning signed the 29-yearold to a seven-year extension worth $47 million. "Hockey players, they can get a feel right away on their role and their fit on a team, how things are going to go," McDonagh said. "Right away, I could see a good fit, style, all the skill and speed and depth. You knew right away this was going to be a good team hopefully for a handful of years. It's fun to be a part of those groups." McDonagh, who played the second-highest ice time for the Lightning during the playoffs, had a year left on his current contract, but on the first day of NHL free agency, the Lightning made keeping him a priority over any new additions. "We really like his two-way game," Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said. "We like the fact that he's a big, strong, good skater ƒ especially we like the character of the person. When he came in, we knew he made us a better team." The only Lightning players making more per season are two of the team's central leaders in center Steven Stamkos and defenseman Victor Hedman. Tampa Bay has now re-signed both players acquired from the Rangers in February, having given C J.T. Miller an extension worth $5.25 million a year earlier this week. McDonagh spent his first eight NHL seasons with the Rangers, and had two goals and 24 assists with New York last season before the trade. He had five assists for Tampa Bay in the playoffs as well.NHL: LightningTeam locks up McDonagh with $47 million dealDIRK SHADD | TIMESThe Lightning has signed defenseman Ryan McDonagh to a seven-year extesnion worth $47.25 million.

Adeiny Hechavarria, pinch-running for Jesus Sucre, scored easily. When rightfielder Josh Reddick held on to the ball too long, Joey Wendle alertly rounded third and scored the go-ahead run. Mallex Smith got a much-needed insurance run in the ninth when he hit a two-out home run to stretch the lead to 3-1. It was his first home run this season and the first in 356 at-bats, the longest active streak for a nonpitcher in baseball. The Rays got out of a jam in the eighth. After a leadoff strikeout, starter Blake Snell got Jake Marisnick to strike out, but the ball went past catcher Wilson Ramos and Marisnick was able to reach first. A Tony Kemp single and a walk to Alex Bregman loaded the bases and chased Snell from the game. Rookie Diego Castillo relieved and got reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve to strike out on a 3-and-2 pitch and Yuli Gurriel to ground out to short to end the inning. In the ninth, the Astros' Evan Gattis hit a leadoff home run off Sergio Romo to make it 3-2. It was his second homer of the game. The Rays (42-41) ended their nine-game homestand 8-1, the second best in team history. It is the sixth time they have been over .500 this season.

By Marc TopkinTampa Bay TimesFormer Rays All-Star C Dioner Navarro is planning to resume his playing career this month with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. Navarro, 34, last played in the majors in 2016 with the White Sox and Blue Jays. He took last year and the first part of this year to help care for his wife, Sherley, who has been dealing with significant health issues at their Tampa area-home. But Navarro, appearing at Tropicana Field Saturday as part of the Rays' 20th anniversary celebration, indicated things have stabilized enough for him to resume his career at the end of July. Navarro spent 200610 with the Rays as a key part of their breakthrough teams, earning selection to the 2008 AL All-Star team. He then bounced from the Dodgers to the Reds to the Cubs to the Blue Jays and White Sox.MLB: RaysDioner Navarro returning to “ eld with Long Island independent league team By TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND „ LeBron James is leaving home for Hollywood and an iconic team. The Los Angeles Lakers have a new superstar „ L.A.-Bron. The NBAs best player announced Sunday night that he has agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers, joining one of the leagues most storied franchises and switching conferences to try and dethrone the Golden State Warriors and grow his own legacy. For the second time in his career, James is saying goodbye to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who drafted the teenage sensation from Akron in 2003 and have to be satisfied with winning just one title in the 11 years they had him. Unlike his two previous forays in free agency, James did not drag out his decision and made the announcement less than 24 hours after NBA free agency opened. This Summer of LeBron was barely a fling. The games biggest star will now lead a young Lakers team „ run by Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson „ that has been overmatched in recent years while rebuilding. But the Lakers will instantly rise with James, a threetime champion who after being swept by the Warriors in this years NBA Finals said he is still driven and very much in championship mode.Ž Los Angeles will also provide James with a larger platform for his business interests and social activism. He already owns two homes in Southern California and has a film production company.James agrees to 4-year contract with LakersAP PHOTOCleveland Cavaliers LeBron James shoots against Golden State Warriors Draymond Green during the first half of Game 3 of basketballs NBA Finals, in Cleveland.

Page 2 SP Monday, July 2, 2018 / The SunBy JOHN WAWROW and STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressJohn Tavares needed to post only one picture on his Twitter account to explain the grip the Maple Leafs have had on him since he was a youngster growing up in suburban Toronto. The photo featured a not-yet-10-year-old Tavares in bed, asleep on a pillowcase and under a blanket adorned with Maple Leafs logos, and accompanied by a note that read: Not everyday you can live a childhood dream.Ž In bidding farewell to the New York Islanders, where he was the captain and face of the franchise since being drafted with the No. 1 pick in 2009, Tavares chose Toronto and agreed to a sevenyear, $77 million contract about an hour after the NHLs free-agency signing period opened on Sunday. The 27-year-old Tavares spent last week assessing offers from the Islanders, San Jose, Toronto, Dallas, Tampa Bay and Boston. He called his decision the toughest of his life in choosing between staying in New York or taking a calculated leap of faith into an opportunity I believe will be special to me and my family.Ž In the end, he was unable to avoid the lure Toronto presented, and informed the Maple Leafs he had chosen them late Saturday night. I just felt this opportunity was just so rare, the timing of where the organizations at, and obviously the connection being from here,Ž Tavares said. I really believe theres a big window here to win, to be part of something special. It just felt right.Ž Tavares, whose 306 points over the past four seasons rank sixth among players over that span, was the highest-profile player to hit the market since the Minnesota Wild signed both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to matching 13-year, $98 million contracts.NHLJohn Tavares chooses Maple LeafsFlorida Lottery www.” alottery.comPICK 2July 1N ............................ 3-4 July 1D ............................ 0-8 June 30N ......................... 3-4 June 30D ......................... 0-3 June 29N ......................... 3-0 June 29D ......................... 9-5PICK 3July 1N ......................... 5-9-3 July 1D ......................... 3-0-1 June 30N ...................... 9-8-5 June 30D ...................... 4-4-4 June 29N ...................... 1-7-9 June 29D ...................... 2-0-4PICK 4 July 1N ...................... 9-0-2-6 July 1D ...................... 5-9-6-9 June 30N ................... 3-7-3-3 June 30D ................... 7-8-2-8 June 29N ................... 7-7-0-1 June 29D ................... 7-6-9-3PICK 5July 1N .................. 6-2-8-7-7 July 1D .................. 0-5-6-6-3 June 30N ............... 5-9-9-9-1 June 30D ............... 9-7-9-1-2 June 29N ............... 1-1-3-4-4 June 29D ............... 7-3-7-1-2 D-Day, N-NightFANTASY 5June 30 ........... 5-11-17-35-30 June 29 ........... 9-10-18-22-30 June 28 ........... 2-11-19-25-26 € € € PAYOFF for June 29 3 5-digit winners $70,897.93 313 4-digit winners $109.50 9,825 .... 3-digit winners 9.50CASH FOR LIFEJune 28 ........... 4-13-17-34-49 Cash Ball ............................ 1 € € € PAYOFF FOR June 28 0 ............. 5-5 CB $1,000/Day 0 ................ 5-5 $1,000/Week 1 ...................... 4-5 CB $2,500 13 ............................ 4-5 $500LUCKY MONEYJune 29 ................ 1-36-37-47 Lucky Ball ........................... 4 € € € PAYOFF FOR June 26 0 ........... 4-of-4 LB $1 Million 4 .................. 4-of-4 $1,297.50 39 ............ 3-of-4 LB $291.50 523 .................. 3-of-4 $64.00 Estimated Jackpot $1.3 million LOTTOJune 30 ....13-24-28-32-37-47 € € € PAYOFF FOR June 27 0 .. 6-digit winners $2.5 million 13 5-digit winners $4,713.00 756 ... 4-digit winners $75.00 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $3 millionPOWERBALLJune 30 ............ 3-9-20-42-61 Powerball ......................... 24 € € € PAYOFF FOR June 27 0 ...........5-5 + PB $50 Million 0 ...................... 5-5 $1 Million 1 ................ 4-5 + PB $50,000 19 ............................ 4-5 $100 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $60 Million € € €MEGA MILLIONSJune 29 ........... 3-32-47-49-68 Mega Ball ......................... 23 € € € PAYOFF FOR June 29 0 .. 5 of 5 + MB $ 192 Million 0 ................. 5 of 5 $1 Million 0 .......... 4 of 5 + MB $10,000 17 ....................... 4 of 5 $500 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $256 million MLB BASEBALL 1 p.m. MLB „ Detroit at Toronto 7 p.m. ESPN „ Boston at Washington 10 p.m. MLB „ Pittsburgh at L.A.

General manager Vlade Divac announced the deal with the No. 2 overall pick in last months draft on Sunday. Bagley averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds and shot 61.4 percent in his one college season at Duke. He was one of four freshmen in the nation to average a point-rebound double-double and joined Clemsons Horace Grant (1986-87) and Wake Forests Tim Duncan (1996-97) as the only players in ACC history to lead the conference in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage. By BOB BAUMAssociated PressPHOENIX „ Trevor Ariza has agreed to a one-year, $15 million contract with the Phoenix Suns, a person with knowledge of the situation said Sunday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the agreement cannot be officially announced during the free agent moratorium. The 33-year-old Ariza brings a reputation for winning and veteran leadership that general manager Ryan McDonough said the team needed around its young core that features Devin Booker, Josh Jackson and No. 1 overall draft pick Deandre Ayton. Its a nice raise for the 14-year NBA veteran, who earned $7.4 million last season, his fourth with Houston. Ariza averaged 11.7 points last season for a Rockets team that compiled the best record in the NBA at 65-17 before losing to Golden State in a seven-game Western Conference finals. Phoenix had the leagues worst record at 21-61 and has missed the playoffs eight years in a row. Ariza has averaged 10.5 points per game, shooting 42 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3-point range, in a career that included stops with the New York Knicks, Orlando, the Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans and Washington, as well as Houston. The move gives Phoenix a glut of players at the wing positions and uses up most of the teams available salary cap space. However, more space could be created with personnel moves. The teams biggest remaining need would appear to be point guard, where the top two currently are Brandon Knight, returning from knee surgery that cost him all of last season, and French rookie Elie Okobo, the first player drafted this year in the second round. The Suns also announced their Las Vegas Summer League roster. Ayton and fellow first-round pick Mikal Bridges are on it, as is Jackson. Dragan Bender is on the list but no Marquese Chriss. Ayton threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Sundays game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants.NBASuns, Ariza agree to 1-year, $15 million contractAP PHOTOHouston Rockets Trevor Ariza plays against the Minnesota Timberwolves during the second half of Game 3 of their first-round p la y off series in Minnea p olis. AP PHOTONew York Islanders center John Tavares (91) celebrates his goal against the Detroit Red Wings on Feb. 21, 2017, in the third period of a NHL hockey game, in Detroit. By W.G. RAMIREZAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ One year ago, the Vegas Golden Knights were in the midst of forming their first team. On Sunday, they were in the middle of the free-agent market as they look to fine-tune the roster for another run at the Stanley Cup Final. The defending Western Conference champions signed veteran forward Paul Stastny to a reported three-year, $19.5 million contract, hours after losing David Perron. Stastny totaled 53 points (16 goals, 37 assists) in 82 games last season, appearing in 63 games with the St. Louis Blues before being acquired by the Winnipeg Jets on Feb. 26. During the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, the 32-yearold Quebec City native recorded a career-high 15 points (six goals, nine assists) and helped Winnipeg reach the Western Conference Final before losing to Vegas in five games. Sometimes you gotta go with your gut feeling. Sometimes its just one of those things that its best fit hockeywise, family-wise and everything in between,Ž Stastny said during a conference call Sunday. They always played such a high, kind of fastpaced game, aggressive, everyone involved, not just one line, all four lines involved.Ž During his 12-year NHL career, Stastny has 220 goals and 426 assists, with the 646 points ranking 33rd among active players.NHLGolden Knights land veteran center Stastny By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Wins have been hard to come by lately for the Charlotte Stone Crabs, but they ended the week on a high note with a 6-3 victory over the Tampa Tarpons Sunday afternoon. The little things at the end of the games we havent been doing, and its been costing us wins,Ž manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. Today was different. We did the little things and scored when we needed to.Ž Charlotte took a 5-2 lead in the sixth inning and put together back-toback multi-run innings. Rene Pintos double plated Jake Fraley from first base, who took advantage of a slight bobble by left fielder Ben Ruta, to score the first run of the inning. David Olmedo-Barreras single in the next at-bat extended the Charlotte lead. Lately, offensively we havent been swinging the bats well, especially with runners in scoring position,Ž Ruiz said. Hopefully we can keep that momentum going from today.Ž Later in the sixth inning, Tristan Gray smoked his league-leading 23rd double of the season off the right field wall scoring Olmedo-Barrera. The Stone Crabs bats woke up the inning prior, as they managed to tie the game at 2-2. OlmedoBarreras leadoff single sparked the two-run inning for Charlotte before Robbie Tenerowicz and Jesus Sanchez cashed in with RBI doubles. The two runs took starting pitcher Riley OBrien off the hook for the loss, after he had a strong bounce back performance. In his previous start, OBrien failed to get out of the first inning when he allowed three runs on four hits while recording just two outs. But Sunday was significantly better for OBrien, who held the Tarpons to two runs on four hits, three walks and five strikeouts. He allowed just one run in the second and fourth innings, managing to escape jams with limited damage. The first time was in Lakeland and it was his first time in the league. It was obviously not his best,Ž Ruiz said. Today was much better. He was able to go through 4.2, but the stuff is there. I like his stuff.Ž OBrien had a 40.50 ERA entering the game, but lowered it to 8.44 in the no decision. Reece Karalus earned his first victory of the season in an important relief outing where he held the Tarpons scoreless over 2.1 innings. Karalus had no walks and gave up three hits while striking out a pair. Hes been pitching really well,Ž Ruiz said. Today he was key in our comeback. He gave us a chance and did a really good job.Ž Four of Charlottes runs came off reliever Justin Kamplain, who gave up the four runs on six hits while recording only five outs. Starting pitcher Nick Nelson was only able to go 4.1 innings, despite allowing just one run on five hits, due to the pitch count which was elevated in no small part because of nine strikeouts. Six different Stone Crabs batters had an extra-base hit in the win. All nine batters had at least one hit. Tenerowicz, Sanchez, Fraley and Pinto had two hits each.

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

She was asked about the issue because of a recent report by Deadspin that said Williams had been checked five times in 2018 by June, more than other U.S. women and men in the sport. U.S. Anti-Doping Agency spokesman Brad Horn told The Associated Press that the five tests conducted on Williams were a result of three visits from a test collector. It is standard practice on many testing missions to obtain both urine and blood samples, resulting in multiple samples from a single testing mission,Ž Horn said. Williams returned to competition this season after missing more than a year as a result of pregnancy. The 36-year-old American gave birth to a daughter last September. Williams said she found it a little frustratingŽ that she was deemed to have missed a test last month when a sample collector showed up at her house about 12 hours earlier than the time she had indicated shed be available. Im totally OK with testing and I encourage it,Ž Williams said. She added: Its just about being equal and not centering one person out.Ž As part of USADAs intelligentŽ out-of-competition testing program, it is not unusual for top athletes „ those who have had sustained success in their sport „ to be tested more often than others. It also is not unusual for athletes who have taken long breaks to be subject to additional testing because of natural physiological changes that might have occurred during the time off. Tennis players can be tested by more than one agency, too. Williams complaints about unequal testing were mentioned Sunday to Roger Federer, who estimated he has been tested seven times in the last month, including in-competition and out-of-competition. In the village I live in, in Switzerland, the tester lives in the same village, so its very convenient. Its very convenient. If hes bored at home, he probably just says, Let me check in on Roger to see if hes having a good time. Anyway, its only going to take 10 minutes, whatever,Ž Federer said. Ive been tested quite a bit, quite frequently out of competition.Ž But he also noted that hes only been asked to provide a sample once while hes been in Dubai, his base for the past 15 years. He called that lack of tests quite disappointing.Ž I think it varies from place to place that you spend your time in. Maybe thats the part I dont like so much: the inconsistency of the places where they test,Ž Federer said, adding that more funding is needed for doping control. I dont believe theres ever going to be enough testing,Ž Federer said. Whats important is these people are professional, they know what theyre doing, they treat you like humans, not like criminals. Then its OK. But I understand the frustration sometimes. I have it, too.ŽSerena Williams says its unfair shes drug-tested moreAP PHOTOUS tennis player Serena Williams reacts, during a press conference yesterday ahead of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London. TENNIS: Serena Williams By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON „ Serena Williams says she got choked up when she brought her baby daughter to Centre Court. She appreciates the All England Clubs decision to seed her as she prepares to return to action at Wimbledon on Monday for the first time as a mother. She wants other women to know that breastfeeding does not make one lose weight. She thinks its unfair she gets drug-tested more than other players. She went weeks without practicing her serve because of an injury. She even referred to herself in the third person. In other words, Williams was in the mood to gab Sunday at a pre-tournament news conference postponed a day so she could accompany her recently married royal friend, the former Meghan Markle, to watch Prince Harry play polo. No one knows exactly what to expect on the court from Williams, the 36-year-old American who owns seven Wimbledon titles and 23 Grand Slam singles championships overall but has played a total of seven matches in the last 17 months. Mondays contest on Court 1 against Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands will be Williams first since pulling out of the French Open with a hurt chest muscle before a fourthround showdown with Maria Sharapova. One things clear, Williams said: She will be as hungry to win as ever in the fourth tournament of her comeback. I dont think I ever actually lost that competitive side. In fact, I feel like its stronger, because Ive been through so much,Ž she said. It definitely surprises me a little, because I thought it would be different. I thought: Hey, I have this amazing child. I have all these Grand Slams. This is all super-bonus. And it is. I definitely feel a lot less pressure out there,Ž Williams continued. But I am a little bit shocked at how much I almost want that pressure. I almost want to feel the need to go out there and be the best that I can be. Its weird, you know. I think it just speaks to who I am as an athlete and who Serena is.Ž The Day 1 schedule also includes the opening of Roger Federers bid for a record-extending ninth title at the grasscourt major, as well as other past Grand Slam champions such as Williams older sister Venus, Caroline Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens, Victoria Azarenka, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Stan Wawrinka and Marin Cilic. Sunday brought the withdrawal of twotime Wimbledon titlist Andy Murray, who had hip surgery in January. Murray always is a focus, with so many expectations from the locals; the Brit gave them their first male champion in 77 years in 2013. Williams figures to garner plenty of attention however long she remains in the field after sitting out Wimbledon last year while pregnant.TENNIS: WimbledonBack at Wimbledon, Williams gabs about baby and more

Page 6 SP Monday, July 2, 2018 / The SunBy JAY COHENAssociated PressJOLIET, Ill. „ Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson raced all over the track during an electric final lap. As Busch began to celebrate his dramatic victory, Larson gave him a thumbs up. It was quite a finish, and they knew it. Busch outdueled Larson down the stretch Sunday in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway, earning his fifth victory of the season. It was a good day, a g reat finish, an excitin g one for that, especially at a mile and a half,Ž Busch said. People dont necessarily see those very much anymore. Man, you just got to be pumped for that. Its cool.Ž Busch moved into the lead on a restart with 58 laps to go, replacing Kevin Harvick at the front of the field. Busch, Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. „ NASCARs top three teams so far this season „ were up front with about 40 laps left before a hardcharging Larson crashed the party. He powered by Harvick to g et into second. He appeared to be in trouble after brushing the wall with seven laps left, but he kept going and Busch was slowed by a couple lapped cars at the back of the field. Busch and Larson then were neck-and-neck on the final lap. Larson bumped into the back of Buschs car and moved into the lead. Busch then raced into the back of Larsons car and sped ahead for the victory. When I was going down the backstretch, I was like, Hell, no, youre not taking this one away ri g ht now,Ž Busch said. This was kind of where I was at. I was just going to do anything that it took for us to be able to get back to the start/finish line first.Ž Busch was booed by the crowd when he got out of his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. He playfully rubbed his left eye in a crying motion and waved off the jeering fans. Larson, who was trying for a weekend sweep after winning the Xfinity Series race Saturday, had no complaints. I roughed him up. He rou g hed me u p Thats racing,Ž he said. It was Buschs second win at Chicagoland, joining his victory in 2008. He also moved into a tie with Herb Thomas for 14th on the Cup Series career wins list with 48. Hes a one-in-a-million talent,Ž Busch crew chief Adam Stevens said. The sport hasnt seen too many people with his level of talent. To get the chance to race with him, win some races with him is what every little boy dreams about.Ž With NASCAR heading to Daytona this week, Busch and Harvick are tied for the series lead in wins. Its just the fourth time in series history that two drivers won at least five times in the first 17 races of the season, joining Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson in 2010 and Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough in 1974 and 1977. Busch leads the standings by 62 points over Harvick, who finished third for his 11th top-10 result in 18 races on the 1.5-mile oval in the Chicago suburbs. Truex was fourth, falling short in his bid for a third straight win at the track.AUTO RACING: NASCARKyle Busch wins Chicagoland Speedway race in wild “ nish By GRAHAM DUNBARAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Stretching every part of his body out into a star shape and diving to his right, Igor Akinfeev flicked out his left foot and kicked the ball high away from danger. Akinfeevs foot kept Russias party going Sunday night, ended the international career of one of Spains biggest stars and sealed the biggest upset of the tournament and one of the greatest in World Cup history. Akinfeev saved two shots during the shootout, while all of his teammates scored to give Russia a 4-3 advantage after a draw that was dominated by Spain in every way but the 1-1 score. Russia „ the lowest ranked team in the World Cup at No. 70 in the world „ is stunningly going to the quarterfinals to face Croatia on Saturday. Millions of Russian fans, many of whom were mocking this team just a couple of weeks ago, are jumping loudly on the bandwagon. Were hosting a fantastic tournament,Ž Akinfeev said. I think our fans and foreign fans have recognized that were a country that can play football and organize big events.Ž Akinfeevs winning save against forward Iago Aspas made the national stadium in Moscow shake with the roar of around 70,000 Russians celebrating their teams best World Cup run since it was the Soviet Union in 1966. It was a shocking elimination for Spain, joining former champions Germany and Argentina. Still, World Cup history was on Russias side after its well-organized team survived two hours of barely having the ball. Russia extended a streak of World Cup hosts winning penalty shootouts to five. France, South Korea, Germany and Brazil have also won shootouts since 1998. Akinfeev ensured that, in the 32-year-old captains 111th game for his country. With Spain taking first, the shootout was poised at 2-2 when Akinfeev dived to his right to push away the kick by Jorge KokeŽ Resurreccion. The Atletico Madrid midfielder lifted his shirt over his eyes in dismay. Russian penalty kickers were perfect against Spains struggling goalkeeper David De Gea. After Akinfeev acrobatically blocked the left-footed shot of Aspas, he leapt up, punched the air with both hands and dove into a belly flop cross the rain-soaked turf as teammates raced to him from the halfway line. I just feel emptied out,Ž Akinfeev said. Over the whole second half and extra time we were defending our goal and managed it, we were hoping for penalties because Spain are hard to beat.Ž It gave Russia its greatest win for 10 years, since Akinfeev was in goal for an extra-time victory over the Netherlands in a European Championship quarterfinal. That run was ended days later by a Spain team beginning its era of dominance. Spain has now failed to win a knockout game at three major tournaments since it won Euro 2012, its third straight major title after Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. It was too passive a performance by the Spanish, who were ranked 10th and among the pre-tournament favorites. Turmoil erupted two days before the opening game, when the federation fired the head coach. Its painful, theres nothing else we can say,Ž Spain captain Sergio Ramos said. We left our soul in the pitch.Ž It is unclear if interim coach Fernando Hierro will continue in a job he did not seek before Julen Lopetegui was sent home. Lopetegui was fired because he didnt tell Spains soccer leaders he accepted an offer to coach Real Madrid after the tournament. Sundays defeat ended Andres Iniestas Spain career. The 34-year-old Barcelona midfielder came off the bench and almost won the game with an 85th-minute shot well saved by Akinfeev. Iniesta also scored the first spotkick of the shootout.WORLD CUP: Russia 1 (4), Spain 1 (3)Host Russia eliminates SpainAP PHOTORussian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev makes a save on the last penalty shot by Spains Iago Aspas during the round of 16 match between Spain and Russia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia. By RONALD BLUMAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Add this to your book of Russian proverbs: He who only passes is passed. Mighty Spain dominated the field at Luzhniki Stadium, dulled the senses with mindnumbing ball movement around the perimeter of the penalty area Sunday. It was the classic tikitakaŽ style that led to a World Cup title in 2010, bookended by a pair of European Championships. The Spaniards would pass a team into confusion and then strike. But this time, they just passed side-to-side, sometimes backward, almost never to attack. Possession soccer appears to be a relic, ready for a display case in soccers version of the Hermitage museum. Russia won a World Cup knockout game for the first time since the Soviet Union in 1966, defeating Spain 4-3 on penalty kicks after a 1-1 tie Russia goes to the quarterfinals against Croatia, while Spain goes home. Everything is changing,Ž Spain coach Fernando Hierro said through a translator. Trends change.Ž Spain made 1,137 passes and completed 1,031, according to FIFA. Stat company Opta said that was the most since it started keeping track in 1966. In contrast, Russia has completed two fewer passes „ 1,029 „ in four matches at the World Cup. Russia got the victory Sunday making 202 of 285 passes. Russian coach Stanislav Cherchesov used a five-man defensive back line for the first time in this World Cup. Asked why, he thought back to the 2008 European Championship, where Russia lost to Spain 4-1 in its opener and 3-0 in the semifinals. Let us say this openly, they are better than us in many ways,Ž he said. So I dont believe that we should risk going forward.Ž Russia is ranked 70th in the world, the lowest in the field, and Spain is 10th. Home supporters with red-white-andblue wigs and painted faces seemed prepared for an unhappy ending out of Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky, especially after Marco Asensios free kick ricocheted off a calf of defender Sergei Ignashevich in the 12th minute and past goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev for an own goal. The hosts have staged a fine tournament, full of smiles, solyanka and samovars „ and a bit of vodka, too. They unexpectedly advanced. Losing to a world power in the round of 16 would be no shame.WORLD CUPSpains tiki-taka generation is “ nally doneAssociated PressMOSCOW „ Most Russian fans just hoped that this World Cup team would not embarrass itself at a home tournament. Now they are ecstatically flooding the streets to celebrate a massive upset with hopes for more. Russians partied loudly in the center of Moscow Sunday night after their team beat Spain to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup for the first time since the Soviet era. Even those who lost money on the game were cheering. Im proud to be Russian and Im proud to be at this celebration,Ž said Nikolai, who didnt give his surname. I will tell my grandchildren and my children that I was here, that we beat Spain, and Im proud of this. It will always be in my heart.Ž Fans climbed lampposts to cheer and some wore false mustaches in imitation of coach Stanislav Cherchesov. One said hed bet 1,000 rubles ($16) on Spain but was happy to lose. The celebrations crossed political divides too. YEEEEESSS! We need to announce a series of protests demanding (goalkeeper Igor) Akinfeev is made a Hero of Russia,Ž wrote opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who has spent numerous stretches in detention over his involvement in protests against president Vladimir Putins government. One of Navalnys campaign staff, Ruslan Shaveddinov, messaged that everyone should head out onto the streets to celebrate, adding a hashtag which translated to for a tweet like this you can get (sentenced to) 30 days.Ž Russias usually strict laws against unsanctioned public gatherings have been effectively suspended for World Cup celebrations, with Nikolskaya Street in central Moscow transformed into an around-the-clock space for fans to party. Police there turn a blind eye to drinking on the street, which would usually attract a fine.WORLD CUPEcstatic Russians pour onto the streets after win By GERALD IMRAYAssociated PressNIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia „ Danijel Subasic saved three penalties, and Croatias World Cup hopes. In the second straight shootout of the tournament, the Croats advanced to the quarterfinals on Sunday with a 3-2 victory over Denmark on penalties following a 1-1 draw. Subasic tipped the first penalty of the shootout from Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen onto the post. He then dived to his right to save an attempt from substitute Lasse Schone. Finally, he used his feet to block Nicolai Jorgensens attempt. He was a hero tonight,Ž Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said. He saved three penalties in a shootout. You dont see that every day.Ž Subasic became only the second goalkeeper to save three penalties in a shootout at the World Cup, matching the feat of Portugal keeper Ricardo against England in 2006. Croatia will next face host Russia in the quarterfinals on Saturday in Sochi. Russia also advanced on penalties, beating Spain 4-3 following another 1-1 draw. Croatia had a chance to take the lead late in the game at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, but Luka Modrics penalty was saved by Kasper Schmeichel. The Denmark goalkeeper, who also saved a pair of penalties in the shootout, dive d to his left to smother Modrics attempt in the 116th minute. Subasics three saves and Schmeichels two made it the most combined saves in a World Cup shootout. Modric, however, made his penalty in the shootout and Ivan Rakitic scored the decider with a shot to the left side of the net as Schmeichel dived the wrong way. After surviving the shootout, Subasic had to survive the celebration. Domagoj Vida lifted the keeper onto his shoulders as they celebrated the win, and then dropped him. He is fine,Ž Dalic said. Croatia entered the match after impressing in the group stage, including a 3-0 dismantling of two-time champion Argentina at the same stadium. But Denmark, unbeaten in 18 games coming into the game, provided tough opposition. The Danes took the lead in the first minute when defender Mathias Jorgensen scrambled in a shot that went in off Subasics left hand and then the left post. It was Denmarks fastest ever World Cup goal.WORLD CUPCroatia beats Denmark in days second shoot-out
