News Wire Grimsley: CouldnÂt find ag commissioner candidate So she ran herself to fill voidSEBRING Â„ When Denise Grimsley Â“rst got into politics, it was mainly because she had seen a lack of leadership with her Florida Legislature and state agencies. She was prepared this year to leave Tallahassee after serving in the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate Â„ she even sold her house there Â„ until she started looking for a candidate to back for Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. She told The Highlands tea party last week she couldnÂt Â“nd one she liked. She decided to run instead. It wasnÂt the Â“rst time she found a deÂ“ciency and ran for ofÂ“ce to change it. Raised in Wauchula, she belongs to a Florida cattle and citrus family going back many generations. When she can, she still tends the herd and the groves, she said. SheÂs now the administrator of Florida Hospital Wauchula, but has spent most of her career as a registered nurse. She started at Walker Memorial Hospital and worked 17 years as a trauma nurse, which she called the best training for politics. Â(It) teaches you to keep your eye on the ball, and you ignore all the noise that goes on to the right and to the left of you,ÂŽ Grimsley said, Âand you just kind of stay focused to do whatever the task is at hand.ÂŽ When her father became ill, she returned home to run Grimsley Oil for 10 years: Her familyÂs gasoline and propane business included 10 convenience stores. One cold January Friday, a water heater went out in a store in Arcadia. They were in the process of installing it when the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Â„ which regulates gas By PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERAVON PARK Â„ The Avon Park City Council will consider approving the Â“re assessment rates for 2018-19 with no changes from current rates, at its meeting at 6 p.m. today. The rates on the Â“re assessment resolution remain unchanged from the 2017-18 rates, at $80 per residential dwelling; commercial at 4.3 cents per square foot; industrial/warehouse at .7 cents per square foot; and governmental/institutional at 1.8 cents per square foot. The resolution states the estimated Â“re rescue assessed cost for Â“scal year 2018-19 is $413,000 and the city manager shall apportion it among assessed property in the manner spelled out in the initial assessment resolution. In other business, the City Council will consider approving the placement of the War Dog Memorial at the Community Center. At the June 25 Council meeting, Anna Marie Feeney said the executive board of Battle of the Bands suggested the Community Center site for the memorial. The initial proposed site on the Main Street Mall would have required approval from the Florida Department of Transportation. The Council requested that city staff look into the memorial placement at the Community Center, and staff has designated an area for approval. An aerial photo shows two possible locations, both at the front of Community Center facing Main Street. Both are to the right of center with one close to the sidewalk on Main Street and the other close to the sidewalk leading to the front doors of the Community Center. Also, the agenda shows the city manager will provide updates on upcoming agenda items: budget discussion and preliminary millage rate adoption. The city manager will provide an update on the cityÂs consideration of purchasing the Sebring Ridge Utilities wastewater system. The owners of the utility, Chris and Julia Miller, presented a $650,000 proposal, which includes 17 acres of land that are zoned B-3 property and seven additional lots. Without the B-3 property and lots, the sale price is $450,000. Council wanted know how much it would cost to improve the reliability of the system. The Council Chambers is at 123 E. Pine St. AP looks to keep fire rates the same By MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER GRIMSLEY | 4 PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFDenise Grimsley, left, speaks to a crowd of 30-40 at TuesdayÂs meeting of The Highlands Tea Party. Grimsley said before the meeting she didnÂt expect to take Wednesday -July 4 -o because of a tight campaign schedule. She is currently running for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. GRIMSLEY Thriving hives Heartland is committed to saving bees, under assault in other places HIVE | 4SEBRING Â„ Although bees are on the decline throughout the world, they are Âquite abundant in the Heartland of Florida,ÂŽ according to David Austin, residential horticulture agent with the University of Florida. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bees have declined by over half since the 1940s, from 6 million in 1940 to approximately 2.5 million today. This decline affects food production since one-third of all crop production requires insect pollination, according to the USDA. This includes 90 crops, including popular foods such as apples, berries, avocados and pumpkins. ÂPollinators are essential to the production of food, and in the United States honey bees pollinate an estimated $15 billion of crops each year, ranging from almonds to zucchinis,ÂŽ said Dr. Ann Bartuska, USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Research, Education and Economics. Colony Collapse Disorder, or CCD, was recognized as an issue in 2007, but this threat has faded in recent years. According to Diana Cox-Foster from the USDA, the biggest threats today are poor nutrition, pesticides, pathogens and parasites. Backyard beekeeper, Dawn Havery, from downtown Sebring, treats her two hives for Varroa destructor, a mite which feeds on honey bees and their larvae. According to Austin, who is also the vice president of the local beekeeperÂs association, the Varroa destructor weakens the whole hive and has increased the difÂ“culty of beekeeping. Local beekeepers join together at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center in Sebring to learn how to combat threats such as the Varroa destructor. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. the third Thursday of every month. These meetings provide support to new beekeepers and are open to people who would like to learn more about keeping bees. The Heartland Beekeepers Association and the University of FloridaÂs Institute of Agricultural Science offer a course once per year to train new beekeepers. Although the number of bees is declining elsewhere, bees in the Heartland are thriving because northern beekeepers bring thousands of hives to the area every year. According to Larry Smith, president of the local beekeepers association, ÂWe have more bees than anywhere else in the country.ÂŽ In a warm winter, bees multiply in a hive and split. When the queen leaves and takes half of the bees with her in search of a new home, it is called swarming. Smith said: ÂIn Highlands County we are lucky because we have bees brought to us. Unfortunately, they get in peopleÂs homes and we have to remove them. We try to extract them and get them in new hives.By MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITER COURTESY PHOTOBee keepers encourage residents and businesses to evacuate, not exterminate, bees. For help evacuating bees, contact David Austin at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center.

Bees have been producing honey for at least 150 million years 4. A cave painting depicting an androgynous Â“gure robbing honey out of the hive was found in the Cave of the Spider in Valencia, Spain. It is estimated to be 15,000 years old. 5. Honey stored in air tight containers never spoils. Sealed honey vats found in King TutÂs tomb still contained edible honey, despite over 2,000 years beneath the sands.

A4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com stations Â„ showed up for an inspection. They asked the representative to wait until they Â“nished so he could inspect the heater, but he was in a hurry to return to Sebring by 5 p.m. and wouldnÂt wait. They couldnÂt serve coffee that weekend Â„ a staple at convenience stores Â„ until his return. A call to a superior in Tallahassee got nowhere, she said. ÂSo I decided right then IÂm going to get involved somehow in politics, and IÂm going to Â“nd people (and) elect people who are business friendly, rural friendly to our way of life and that have some common sense,ÂŽ Grimsley said. She joined the Hardee Republican Executive Committee, went on to become state committee woman, looking for candidates to back. At the start of August 2004, they sold their stores Â„ 13 days before Hurricane Charley hit. Grimsley also ran for the Florida House of Representatives, where she served a full four terms. As a legislator, she went out to remote areas of her district, holding Âmobile ofÂ“ceÂŽ hours, and took part in local meetings to remind people that she was there to help them navigate state government. A couple of years ago, she decided sheÂd done what she needed to, and sold her Tallahassee home in preparation to leave. Then she and other Republicans talked over lunch about the fact that the candidate they wanted to back for agriculture commissioner had decided not to run. She started looking for one with a handÂs-on background in agriculture, executive experience to run an agency with 3,800 employees and a $1.7 billion budget and a background in Â“nance, both in private business and government Â“nancial systems. She didnÂt Â“nd that candidate, so she decided to run herself. The agency oversees agriculture, but also is the chief consumer advocate. It oversees gas stations, pawn shops, security guards, mappers/surveyors, amusement park rides and the county and state fairs. She remembers one time meeting with a state ofÂ“cial, the man wouldnÂt turn from his computer and said ÂUh-huhÂŽ to her every statement. She didnÂt like talking to his back and knowing she wasnÂt being heard. Instead, she said, state ofÂ“cials should have a culture of service, showing respect, calling people by name, making the process of government easy and also keeping people from getting stuck on a phone tree or web site when trying to make direct contact with an agency. ÂThose are the things that I think you care about, and if itÂs not easy for some reason, you want one of those 3,800 employees to hold your hand,ÂŽ she said. Grimsley is a member of the Peace River Valley and Highlands County Citrus GrowerÂs Associations, the Florida CattlemenÂs Association and the Florida Farm Bureau. She holds degrees from Polk Community College and Warner Southern College, and a masterÂs in business administration from the University of Miami.GRIMSLEYFROM PAGE 1 ÂThe state requires us to kill the queen and put in a new queen, or requeen the hive, but this doesnÂt always work,ÂŽ Smith said. ÂI donÂt agree with that law.ÂŽ Havery feels that ÂPeople should evacuate, not exterminate, bees. They can contact David Austin at the Agri-Civic Center, and he will give them names of people who can remove the bees. There is a charge, but it is usually less than extermination.ÂŽ AustinÂs number at the agricultural extension ofÂ“ce is 863-402-6540. Havery started her own backyard beekeeping three years ago with the help of her close friend, Kathryn Church. Church helped her put two hives in bee boxes, but the bees did not stay. Havery said, ÂBees are always looking for a better piece of real estate.ÂŽ The two friends decided that if the third swarm of bees didnÂt stay, they would need to think about new boxes for the bees. However, the third time worked. Now Havery has two hives. Her original hive split, and she has approximately 100,000 bees in her backyard. Although she hasnÂt counted her bees, she knows that in a healthy, thriving hive, there are about 50,000 bees. Her backyard bees had to regain their health after Hurricane Irma. Irma damaged the orange blossoms, which is the biggest source of nectar Â”ow for Highlands County. Irma also knocked down one of her hives, and the bees became stressed. Havery did pick up the box, but the honey production drastically decreased. This year her bees only produced 60 pounds of honey compared to 130 pounds the previous year. Havery enjoys having her backyard bees and believes that downtown Sebring is a great place for backyard beekeepers. ÂDowntown bees do better because there are more Â”owers. When people have Â”owering bushes and trees, like they have downtown, bees survive better during the dearth months,ÂŽshe said. Dearth months are months when there is not a lot of nectar for the bees. During this time, beekeepers often feed their bees sugar water to help them survive.HIVEFROM PAGE 1 COURTESY PHOTODawn Havery is a backyard beekeper, who lives in downtown Sebring.

Wilhelm and Axel Peterson were sons of Swedish immigrants Axel Walgren and Thyra Bengston Peterson who came to the United States in the early 1900s and to Sebring in 1925 and owned and operated the Circle Cafeteria Restaurant on the Circle in downtown Sebring. ÂIn a sense I am an expert on eating out since I never had a homecooked meal in Sebring from 1925 to 1933,ÂŽ wrote Axel Peterson. ÂI could run in and eat at any time I wanted to. I thought this was great.ÂŽ ÂIn another sense I am not an expert since I never ate at the Tasty Toast Sandwich Shop or the Nan-ces-o-wee (Hotel) or the Santa Rosa (Hotel) or Ryalls Boarding House downtown Sebring. You see, at every meal I had a choice of ten desserts, Â“ve salads, four vegetables and three meats. Also I had plenty of company but they werenÂt my age. ÂMany retired people ate at our place seven days a week. Others would eat only on Sunday. Sunday was always a huge day because the locals would come to enjoy the best chicken and dumplinsÂ ever. As soon as church was over the crowds came. We had a large business with people who were passing through downtown Sebring. We had a sign north of town advertising our restaurant. Many of our returning customers would eat at our restaurant once a year as they were passing through on their way south. My father would remember them and always greet them since he never forgot a face. I believe some travelers planned their trip so that they could get to our place at meal time.ÂŽ (There was no Highway 27 at that time. Motorists had to wind through downtown Sebring as they headed south). ÂI believe the most welcome person at our place was the Reverend Jimmy Day, the Baptist ministerÂ„and not just on Sunday. For him everything was free. Also free, were eats for those who knocked on the rear door but who had no moneyÂ„ there were plenty of them during the hard times of the 1930s. During the boom times of the 1920s we had as many as 13 employees and the line of customers would extend out of the front door and around the First National Bank.ÂŽ ÂOurs was a mom and pop business. Neither of my parents missed a day from 1925 to 1937. Due to the Great Depression, my parents were forced to depart Sebring because the Circle Cafeteria was virtually bankrupt by 1937.ÂŽ AxelÂs brother, Wilhelm wrote ÂI was 15 at the time and never really understood that we were in the middle of the Great Depression. Life was a struggle in many ways for almost everyone.ÂŽ Wilhelm and AxelÂs mother insisted that the brothers get jobs. So at the age of 11 or 12, I (Wilhelm) delivered the Sebring American and later took over AxelÂs Tampa Morning Tribune paper route when he left to attend the University of Florida. ÂDelivering the paper every early morning meant that we had to have the paper on the doorstep of every customer before they got up. That was a must. There was no air-conditioning and everyone had their windows wide open for a breath of fresh air and I could always smell and even hear the bacon frying in the pan. When all papers were delivered it was time for me to head to the Circle Cafeteria for a good breakfast prepared by my dad,ÂŽ wrote Wilhelm.

We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words. Letters will be edited to length as well as for grammar and spelling. All letters must be signed with full name Â… not initials. An address and telephone number must be included. The phone number and address are not for publication, but must be provided. In the case of letters that are emailed, the same rules apply. Due to the number of letters received, we are able to run only four letters per person per month. The Letters to the Editor section is designed as a public forum for community discourse, and the opinions and statements made in letters are solely those of the individual writers. In a recent ruling, a circuit court judge effectively advised the Florida Legislature that it cannot implement a constitutional amendment any way that its members see Â“t. Good for the judge. Good for Floridians Â„ in this case, the overwhelming majority of voters who in 2014 supported Amendment 1, which was simply titled ÂWater and Land Conservation Â„ Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands.ÂŽ Environmental groups challenged the LegislatureÂs implementation of the amendment, which was endorsed by 75 percent (4.2 million) of those who voted on the measure. Amendment 1 was approved by 78 percent of voters in Sarasota County and 76 percent in Manatee County. In other words, the water and land conservation amendment won in a landslide. The amendment had several key requirements, and was proposed and adopted because the Legislature and governor failed to perform two vital tasks: Â€ Allocate sufÂ“cient revenue to satisfy a portion of the Florida Constitution that states: ÂIt shall be the policy of the state to conserve and protect its natural resources and scenic beauty. Adequate provision shall be made by law ... for the conservation and protection of natural resources.ÂŽ Â€ Meet the terms and intent of the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. Florida and its taxpayers made substantial investments in acquisition and preservation until 2009, when the state drastically reduced or eliminated funding of the premier program for acquisition Â„ Florida Forever. The Great Recession did force the Legislature to prioritize spending, and the revenues for the acquisition fund Â„ from documentary stamps on real estate transactions Â„ plummeted. But after the recession, conservation funding still lagged while revenues rose. Amendment 1 had two main requirements: Â€ The state would allocate 33 percent of net revenues from the so-called doc stamps to water and land conservation. Â€ The revenues would be used to Âacquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; Â“sh and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites.ÂŽ The plaintiffs made a compelling case that the Legislature had not fulÂ“lled the terms of the amendment. They cited a laundry list of expenses that, we suspect, few Floridians who voted for Amendment 1 would view as consistent with the amendmentÂs language and their intent. For instance, the lawsuit cited the use of funds for vehicles, ofÂ“ce personnel and other expenditures that should be covered by the general fund. Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, based in Leon County (home to Tallahassee, the state capital), clearly agreed with the plaintiffsÂ arguments. He noted that proposed amendments to the state constitution are reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court for, among other things, clarity. An appeal is likely, unfortunately. Perhaps DodsonÂs ruling will be reversed. But this much is clear for now: At least one judge agreed that the implementation of Amendment One was mishandled, a view likely consistent with that of the 4.2 million Floridians who voted in favor of the measure. An editorial from the Sarasota Herald Tribune.Judge makes a bold standSure, youÂre long-accustomed to schlepping through crowded lines at fast-food chains (a.k.a. Âyour friendly neighborhood hospice care center for condiment dispensersÂŽ) and have grudgingly accepted self-check-out lanes in major retailers (Âfrom the Nobel Prizeworthy humanitarians who convinced you that 15 ounces is so much more convenient than 16 ouncesÂŽ); but are you ready for a decline in service at fancier restaurants? As a keen observer of social trends (and a keen observer of which slowpokes I can wiggle ahead of in an all-youcan-eat buffet line), I couldnÂt resist reading the New York Times article headlined ÂSan Francisco Restaurants CanÂt Afford Waiters. So TheyÂre Putting Diners to Work.ÂŽ Yes, rising commercial rents, escalating labor costs and prohibitively expensive housing (ÂGood help is hard to Â“nd Â„ unless you know somebody who knows somebody whoÂs living in a van down by the riverÂŽ) have left many upscale restaurants in San Francisco (and other trendy cities) turning service responsibilities over to the formerly pampered customers. The cuisine, decor and wine lists may remain impeccable; but diners are expected to fetch their own silverware, pour their own drink reÂ“lls, clean up their own tables and write their own racist/sexist/ fat-shaming slurs on the check. (ÂHoney, how do you spell that thing the angry trucker called me last week? Seems like the sort of thing our hypothetical waiter would call me behind my back. Hmph! See if he gets more than a 15 percent tip!ÂŽ) I doubt the lowered expectations can remain conÂ“ned to just a handful of cities. The New Normal may be coming to your town soon. Instead of banners breezily cajoling, ÂTry the new appetizers,ÂŽ get ready for banners brusquely declaring, ÂTry abandoning hope, all ye who enter here.ÂŽ DonÂt feel unappreciated. If they werenÂt so short-handed, the managers would surely tell you, ÂThank you for splurging and dining at a sit-down restaurant. Speaking of sitting down, you might want to assemble this package from IKEA...ÂŽ This trend probably puts your great-aunt Gertie into a tizzy, albeit one inÂ”uenced by rose-colored glasses. (ÂSure, having someone pump your gas was a given in the Good Old Days. But I can remember when laundry day meant the milkman and Rock Hudson would Â“ght for the chance to fold your towels!ÂŽ) If anyone actually deigns to greet you at the door, it will probably be with ÂParty of six? Good! You can outnumber and intimidate the vegetable vendor out back and get us a better deal on kale.ÂŽ So far, the cutbacks arenÂt affecting the kitchen; but conditions can change in a hurry. If you manage to snag one of the lonesome servers zigzagging through the establishment, you might hear the admonishment, ÂNo, no Â„ the candle isnÂt for romantic effect. YouÂll, uh, need to wave your steak over it for 20 or 30 minutes while making chitchat.ÂŽ Or perhaps ÂYes, we promised 12 courses: soup, salad, entree, dessert, a course on exterminating rodents, a course on exterminating cockroaches...ÂŽ LetÂs just hope simple cost-cutting doesnÂt crossbreed with other causes. ÂSure, you can see a childrenÂs menu, assuming you print it yourself and plant a tree in a sustainable forest to make up for the paper. And weÂll need to see documentation of sterilization, so you donÂt bring any more charming rugrats into existence. Hey, thatÂs a nasty thing to text to Yelp and the Nobel committee...ÂŽ Danny Tyree welcomes email responses at firstname.lastname@example.org and visits to his Facebook fan page ÂTyreeÂs Tyrades. ÂŽ Self-Service: Where does it go from here? Danny TyreeTYRADES! IÂve always been pretty headstrong. I moved out of my parents home when I was barely 18, determined to prove to my parents that I could make it on my own. Just about three years later and after a few roommates and a few different apartments/efÂ“ciencies, I bought my Â“rst house. It wasnÂt perfect. It had been abused by the couple who lived there previously, but with my parents help, we made it livable. It was the perfect little place for me. One of the things that I decided to tackle in that Â“rst little house was the dishwasher that wasnÂt working. We tried and tried to Â“gure out what the problem was, but gave up. Then one day, out of boredom, I decided to tear the front panel off of the dishwasher and I found the culprit ... a little mouse had gotten wedged up in the gears and had died. I pulled the mouse out and tried the dishwasher. Wala! Problem solved, but ... I couldnÂt Â“gure out how to get the panel back on. My dad comes to the rescue and the dishwasher is put back together and works just like new. There were more of those special little projects where I would tear something apart to Â“x it but would Â“nally have to call my dad over to help me put it all back together. He Â“nally told me to stop tearing things apart, but I knew he was joking. IÂve always liked being around when Daddy was working on something or building something. HeÂd mention a tool he needed and IÂd head to the tool box to get it for him. I have tried to learn as much as I can from my dad while watching him put my projects back together. I had hoped that time was this past weekend when my son and I decided to replace the kitchen faucet. We tried. We really did, but we ended up having to call dad for his genius help. Despite the fact that we were moving in the right direction, the hardware holding the faucet in place was so rusted that my son couldnÂt even see how to get it off. Dad came to the rescue and gave guidance to help make sure everything was disconnected and the two of them Â“nally decided the only thing that could be done was to remove the sink altogether. Once outside with it, they were able to get the old faucet off and the new one on. From there, the project was a cinch. At least from my standpoint. I was mostly just watching. As always, Dad came over and helped without grumbling about it. The patience he showed me when I was younger is still there as he guides my son, who can sometimes be quite impatient. ItÂs harder for Dad to help with my projects, especially when they require getting down on the Â”oor. But who am I to talk. My knees donÂt let me get down on the Â”oor very easily, nor up off the Â”oor either. Having my son and my dad there to help me with the project this weekend was quite meaningful for more than one reason. IÂll take all of those opportunities I can get, even if the project is nothing big. Hopefully my son will learn some of the same lessons IÂve learned through the years. IÂll be the Â“rst one to tell you that there are many lessons that still need to be learned by both of us.

Monday, July 9, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7 www.highlandsnewssun.com Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. WEST PALM BEACH (AP) Â„ From the frothy assault of the Atlantic Ocean to the placid trespass of the Lake Worth Lagoon, sea level rise is a mounting concern for South Florida property buyers who are turning to science, and private companies, for guidance. The 3-year-old startup Coastal Risk Consultants was co-founded by the former director of Florida Atlantic UniversityÂs Center for Environmental Studies, and has amassed an advisory board of respected atmosphere experts from the University of Miami, Pennsylvania State University and Florida International University. Jupiter, a Silicon Valley Â“rm launched this year by entrepreneur Rich Sorkin to analyze the effects of climate change on individual properties, includes a Nobel Prize winner, a former leader at the National Science Foundation, and Todd Stern, the chief negotiator for the U.S. on the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. The companies see a market in sea level rise consultation, but also other climate change-related challenges that traditional property inspectors and building codes donÂt consider Â„ hurricane storm surge, Â”ooding rains and extreme temperature changes. When seas could rise 10 inches by 2030 and up to 26 inches by 2060 above 1992 levels, the basis of inquiries is often whether buying a beach house will be an asset or liability to future generations. ÂI just think as a practical matter, this is something people should do,ÂŽ said homebuyer Kevin Kennedy, who ordered four reports from Coastal Risk Consulting on Palm Beach County properties along the Intracoastal and on the ocean. ÂThe results discouraged me from purchasing two of them.ÂŽ Kennedy said he was surprised to learn the Intracoastal homes were more vulnerable to sea level rise than a condominium he liked on the ocean. ÂMy instinct was absolutely wrong,ÂŽ he said. ÂI started looking at properties on the ocean and I and got the same report done. Believe it or not, the prognosis was dramatically better.ÂŽ He bought the oceanfront condo. Coastal Risk Consultants, which raised $2 million to develop software to evaluate individual parcels for Â”ooding, is on the cusp of proÂ“tability, said President Albert Slap. The Plantation-based Â“rm has counseled myriad interests from individual home buyers to well-heeled island developers and entire towns. Property Â“xes can be as simple as self-inÂ”ating barriers available at home improvement stores to pricey permanent blockades against rising tides. ÂSomething like raising your crawl space vents could buy you another 15 years,ÂŽ said Brian McNoldy, a senior research assistant at the University of MiamiÂs Rosenstiel School of Atmospheric Science, who is an unpaid advisor to Coastal Risk Consultants. ÂThey try to give clients an idea of possible Â“xes, high-priority items, and recognize people donÂt have an endless supply of money.ÂŽ Although some have more wherewithal than others. The solution for one coastal homeowner was an elevated, curved sea wall hidden in landscaping that she insisted not obstruct the view from her inÂ“nity-edge pool. ÂThereÂs no one size Â“ts all,ÂŽ Slap said. ÂWhat one home needs may be very different than what the house right next door needs.ÂŽ Home buyers trying to do their own research can Â“nd it confusing. FEMA Â”ood maps are based on historical data and donÂt consider sea level rise. Online tools from federal and private groups can paint a wide swath, but not combine multiple event models for individual properties. Fine tuning the details to focus on single parcels will be one of the nascent industryÂs challenges, said Jayantha Obeysekera, director of Florida International UniversityÂs Sea Level Solutions Center. ÂI think itÂs a viable business, but the key is to get to the scale needed to give residents the right assistance,ÂŽ Obeysekera said. ÂTo do that, they need some fairly sophisticated tools.ÂŽ On June 18, the Union for Concerned Scientists released a sea level rise report targeting properties that could see increased tidal Â”ooding under the worse-case scenario presented by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. What it found was 2,400 Palm Beach County homes could face a monthÂs worth of tidal Â”ooding each year by 2045. That balloons to 60,026 properties worth a staggering $36.2 billion in todayÂs dollars by 2100. Statewide, about 64,000 homes are at risk of chronic Â”ooding by 2045. The report deÂ“nes chronic Â”ooding as an average of 26 Â”ood events or more per year, even in the absence of major storms. By 2100, that report says 1 million Florida homes will be at risk. ThatÂs about 10 percent of the stateÂs current residential properties and 40 percent of the homes at risk nationally. Florida Climatologist David Zierden emphasizes the report is the most dire forecast, seven times higher than the global rate of sea level rise of 3 mm per year. Still, the Southeast Florida Regional Compact on Climate Change says South FloridaÂs sea level rise could be faster than the global rate because of changes in the Gulf Stream current. The compact is projecting 6 to 10 inches of sea level rise by 2030 and 14 to 26 inches by 2060 (above the 1992 mean sea level). In the long term, the compact projects 31 to 61 inches of sea level rise by 2100, and cautions that long-term construction projects with lifespans of 50 or more years should be built based on the upper curve of predictions. ÂWe just think the prudent thing to do is build to higher elevations,ÂŽ said Cody Crowell, managing director for the Palm Beach-based Frisbie Group, which is a client of Coastal Risk Consulting. ÂSome of the buildings we spend a lot of time, money and energy working on, we hope will be around for the next 100 years.ÂŽ But building to a higher elevation means taller buildings, which doesnÂt always sit well with neighbors or planning boards. South Florida cities have spent tens of millions of dollars in planning and construction efforts to keep the sea at bay. Miami BeachÂs ambitious plan to raise roads, install pumps and redo water mains gained international attention for its bullish approach to combat Â”ooding tides. But just last month, a community slated for the next elevated road project had the plan sacked. Some neighbors told Miami Beach commissioners they didnÂt need the modiÂ“cation and were concerned about whether water from a higher road would Â”ood their homes. ÂWeÂre seeing very, very different approaches from just ignoring it and thinking maybe it will go away to some places that are being very proactive wanting to confront it,ÂŽ said David Titley, a meteorology professor at Pennsylvania State University and an unpaid advisor for Coastal. ÂWe have big challenges as a nation, but they can be addressed.ÂŽ Coastal Risk Consultants charges $199 for a basic assessment of a single-family home. A commercial building costs $499. From that initial report, clients can choose to go more in depth for higher fees. This week, Coastal Senior Staff Scientist Hilary Stevens visited the former Charleys Crab restaurant on Palm Beach that was bought in April by the Frisbie Group. Crowell said the company wants to put Â“ve homes on the oceanfront land and is working with Coastal on a detailed review. ÂThe demand is so powerful to be on the water,ÂŽ Stevens said looking out to an Atlantic the color of jade and turquoise. ÂBut this is a classic situation where when this area was designed it was not built to handle what we are likely to see 30, 40, 50 years from now.ÂŽCompany hopes to capitalize on rising sea levels in FloridaBy KIMBERLY MILLERPALM BEACH POST
A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com LAKELANDÂ„ Former NFL player and Teneroc High School football head coach Laroni Gallishaw was arrested by the Polk County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce Friday night in Lakeland in connection with drug possession and other charges, authorities said. Gallishaw was a standout running back for the Lakeland Dreadnaughts Football 1999 State Champions. He played college football at Louisville and Murray State, and played in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings in 2005. He was named head coach for TenerocÂs football program in July 2017, a Polk County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce news release added. The stop was conducted at about 11:40 p.m. when a deputy noticed GallishawÂs blue Dodge Charger driving with an expired tag on Memorial Boulevard near Chestnut Road in Lakeland. The Charger pulled into a Chevron gas station at the intersection. As the deputy approached the vehicle, he could see Gallishaw, the lone occupant of the car, trying to hide something between the driverÂs seat and center console, Polk County deputies said. The deputy obtained permission from Gallishaw to search the car, and immediately discovered a razor blade with a small amount of cocaine in a cup holder. At that time, Gallishaw was arrested and transported to the Polk County Jail, the news release added. At the jail, while waiting to be booked-in, a deputy noticed Gallishaw reaching into his underwear, then attempt to hide something in the seat next to him. A deputy entered the holding cell, and found what was determined to be a rock of cocaine, and a small amount of marijuana, authorities added. ÂIÂm a football fan and I have watched Gallishaw play since he was at Lakeland High School. He was a great athlete and a good role model. His arrest is disappointing to me, to the kids who looked up to him, and to the community. Drugs ruin otherwise good people, and creates horrible circumstances for their families,ÂŽ said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. ÂEvery employee of Polk County Public Schools is held to a higher standard because we all serve as role models for our children. The charges brought against Mr. Gallishaw are completely against our school districtÂs values and are totally unacceptable. This type of behavior will not be tolerated, and I have instructed my HR staff to immediately begin the process of terminating Mr. GallishawÂs employment,ÂŽ said schools Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd Gallishaw was charged with possession of cocaine, introduction of contraband into the jail, tampering with evidence, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia.Teneroc High football head coach arrested on drug chargesSPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN STATE BRIEFSPolice: Driver caused crash that killed puppyTAMPA (AP) Â„ Police in Florida say a heartbroken driver intentionally crashed his vehicle, causing a Â“ve-car pileup that injured two people and killed a puppy. In an email, Tampa Police Lt. Ricardo Ubinas said the driver was Âdespondent over a recent breakupÂŽ and intentionally veered into a concrete median early Saturday. Five other vehicles then collided with his car in a chain-reaction crash. Ubinas said two people in the other vehicles were hospitalized with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A 2-month-old puppy riding as a passenger in one of the other vehicles died in the crash. Ubinas said police took the despondent driver to a hospital for a mental health examination under the Baker Act. The driverÂs name was not released. It was not immediately clear whether charges were pending.Man loses part of hand in fireworks accidentLAUDERHILL (AP) Â„ OfÂ“cials say a Florida man lost part of his hand in a July 4th Â“reworks accident. Lauderhill Fire-Rescue posted on Twitter that the incident happened Wednesday night. They said the injury resulted in a Âpartial amputationÂŽ of the manÂs hand. The manÂs name or condition hasnÂt been released. No further details were immediately available.All Hernando County students to get free lunchesBROOKSVILLE (AP) Â„ Thanks to Hurricane Irma, all students in one Florida school system will qualify for free breakfast and lunch through 2022. The Tampa Bay Times reports the federal Community Eligibility Provision program that offers meal assistance in low-income areas covered 17 of Hernando CountyÂs 25 schools last year. But because the area was deemed a disaster area after the 2017 storm, all schools there will now qualify for the free program. And thatÂs regardless of studentsÂ individual economic needs. School district food and nutrition services director Lori Drenth says after Irma the countyÂs households qualiÂ“ed for the a short-term assistance program. Those enrollment numbers led to a spike in the percentage of students getting free meals. She said the ÂartiÂ“cially highÂŽ count allowed the district to offer free meals to everyone.Nearly 70 animals moved from Panhandle propertyVERNON (AP) Â„ An animal shelter is caring for nearly 70 animals removed from a property in FloridaÂs Panhandle. In a Northwest Florida Daily News report Alaqua Animal Refuge founder Laurie Hood said the 35 dogs, 15 cats, 10 horses, six parrots and a goat were removed Friday from the Vernon home and small buildings on the property. Hood said the elderly homeowner surrendered the animals to authorities after struggling to care for them over the last year. Neighbors had complained about the noise and smell coming from the womanÂs property. None of the animals was ready for adoption. Most had been spayed or neutered but still needed to be treated by veterinarians for malnourishment, stress and other ailments.Man joins elite aviation club of octogenarian pilotsSAND HILLS (AP) Â„ A Florida man is the newest member of an elite aviation club: the United Flying Octogenarians. According to a Panama City News Herald report only about 1,500 pilots nationwide have registered as Â”ying after the age of 80.

Stacy Â… in just his seventh series start Â… qualiÂ“ed the car in Â“fth place and the team overcame a hitch in their strategy during a mid-race caution to hold on for the win. ÂMy stint was quite stressful,ÂŽ said Marcelli. ÂIt was a miscommunication on the radio. When we got the full-course caution I was behind the safety car in Turn 8 and Dean Martin, our crew chief, asked me my opinion on if we should take fuel only. I was giving my answer through Turn 9 and as I released the radio button, he was yelling ÂPit, pit, pitÂ and I already missed the pit entry. ÂI was kicking myself in the butt after that, and it just became a fuel conservation race for us. I just went to the fuel used page on the dash and called in the number every lap.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, July 9, 2018 Dear PharmacistSUZY COHEN Sleeping is one of the great pleasures in life, unless you have bad dreams or nightmares. Then itÂs pure misery. Most of us do dream while sleeping, we just donÂt remember it. Luckily, a man named Larry Page remembered his dream. He was a computer scientists and he woke up from a dream when he was 23 wondering if there was a way to Âdownload the webÂŽ and rank webpages by inbound links. He went on to become a co-founder of Google! PageÂs net worth according to Forbes is $52 billion. Talk about making money when you sleep! So why canÂt you remember your dreams? Our brains are trained to forget non-essential facts and the truth is, most of our dreams arenÂt that unique. But I bet you do wake up and recall the bizarre scary dreams, donÂt you? This is because your brain Â“nds it more ÂessentialÂŽ to remember these strange or scary images. They stand out. Here are some other little known facts about dreaming that you may be interested in. By the way, if youÂd like a longer version of this article, itÂs at my website. Â€If you lost sight later in life, you can like still see images in your dreams and dream visually like when you had your eyesight. Those folks who were born with blindness may not see in pictures but can still dream and experience sounds, touch sensations and emotions during their dream state. Â€With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), several brain regions are involved, including the amygdala where dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin play a role. PTSD nightmares may occur with or without REM sleep. Â€If you have asthma, for some reason, you are also more prone to nightmares. The bad dreams can intensify with many treatments, including montelukast. Â€Heartburn medications such as ranitidine and famotidine used to treat heartburn can sometimes induce vivid dreams and nightmares. So can allergy drugs like diphenhydramine. Â€Blood pressure pills interfere with sleep. This category has well-documented evidence to show how they trigger nightmares and this side effect alone often causes people to seek other treatments. Â€If you grew up with black and white TVs, most of your dreams occur in black and white. Â€Anxiety is the most common emotion during dreams. You might experience it as falling, Â”ying or feeling unprepared or humiliated in your dream. Â€Dogs dream. You will often hear them whimper or see their paws twitching. More than likely they are running in their dreams. Â€Sleeping pills can and often due induce vivid dreaming and nightmares. Withdrawal from these medications can also induce higher dreaming and/or nightmares for a period of time. Â€Antidepressants such as Â”uoxetine and paroxetine increase serotonin and may trigger intense or disturbing dreams that seem to go on all night. Â€Some sleep supplements containing melatonin might trigger unpleasant or bizarre dreams. If that happens, take a break from the melatonin because the dose might be too high. Remember, you make this sleep hormone yourself so supplementing has an additive effect.

But two recent federal health studies found that some waters is better than others, at least when it comes to avoiding waterborne illnesses. Of 633 outbreaks nationwide caused by bacteria, viruses or other things Â”oating around, nearly 80 percent of them were traced to water that was treated with chlorine or other chemicals in swimming pools, hot tubs or wading pools. Most illnesses cause intestinal problems and diarrhea. The studies, which tracked outbreaks from 2000 through 2014, found 493 outbreaks where 27,219 people were sickened and eight died from pathogens in recreational water treated with chemicals. The Â“gures do not include sicknesses linked to private pools or cases where just one person got ill. By comparison, there were just 140 outbreaks linked to lakes, rivers or swimming holes, with 4,958 people falling ill and two deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ÂPeople have a false sense of security when they go to a swimming pool,ÂŽ said Trisha Robinson, an epidemiol-ogist supervisor at the Minnesota Department of Health. ÂThere is this sense that chlorine kills everything. That is not the case.ÂŽ In Minnesota, there were 51 reported recreational-water disease outbreaks over the past 10 years. Only nine were from pathogens in lakes or rivers. Still, compared with foodborne disease outbreaks, which recently have been linked to tainted lettuce, pre-cut melon, raw veggie plates, cereal, eggs and restaurant workers who donÂt wash their hands, the risk of getting a Pools vs. lakesBy GLENN HOWATTSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS) (TNS) Studies: Swimming pools, hot tubs more likely than lakes to make you sickFILE PHOTO It appears that lake water has fewer dangers of waterbone illnesses.

LAKE | 7 Medical tests save lives. Discovering diseases before they become more serious can mean the difference between life and death. But many Americans say they donÂt have time to see a doctor, live too far from a medical facility or are so uncomfortable with examinations that they avoid tests altogether. These challenges have created a demand for home-based medical tests. The market is exploding as businesses bet that consumers prefer the convenience and privacy of home testing. According to industry sales estimates, a major categoryÂ„genetic health tests sold directly to consumers (DTC) Â„ amounted to $99 million globally in 2017, with an annual average growth rate of 25.6 percent. Most tests can be purchased online or at a pharmacy. A few require a doctorÂs prescription, but all are administered by the patient at home. In addition to genetic tests that identify health risks, some detect or monitor existing conditions, like high blood sugar and cholesterol, colon cancer, sexually transmitted diseases and urinary tract infections. Tests vary in price; some are covered by insurance. SURPRISING DISCOVERIES After learning in 2008 that she was conceived with a sperm donor, Ann Melinger of New York City realized she didnÂt know half of her medical history. ÂIt raised a lot of questions about my genetic makeup,ÂŽ she says. Five years later, when Melinger heard about 23andMe, a genetics testing company that offers do-it-yourself kits, she thought it would be an easy way to learn more about her biological dad and any potential health risks. 23andMe offers two kits that test a saliva sample to provide information about the userÂs ancestry ($99) or both ancestry and some genetic health risks ($199). Samples are tested in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab, a designation that signiÂ“es the lab meets federal quality standards. Melinger received her test results a few weeks after submitting her sample.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Unplug yourself: The many benefits of meditationWe live in a society where everything is always moving, changing and challenging us to maintain our sanity. We have to be up early and get ready for a day at work; there is getting the kids ready for school, making sure they get to baseball, football, volleyball, music lessons, dance lessons and the list goes on. You must make sure the laundry gets done, Â“gure out the plan for dinner. The kids need to have their baths, and you need to get ready for tomorrow. Then on top of that, you have to have your phone continually dinging, playing games, ringing and of course donÂt forget the computer time and maybe a little of the TV. It is a constant barrage of stimuli from the outside bombarding you onto the next thing you must get done. The human body is a unique system that can maintain homeostasis under the most severe conditions. Your body will speak to you and tell you what you need to know to maintain health and wellness Âif you listen.ÂŽ The problem is that we donÂt hear and usually Â“nd out there is a problem when our body rebels and manifests a problem. We are much like an internet router. You have to unplug the router to clear all the junk that has built up to keep giving you optimal performance. We also need to unplug. We need to clear all of the junk out, quiet our spirits, mind, and soul and listen to what our divine has to say to us. A perfect way to do this is through meditation. Meditation has been around for thousands of years. It requires no membership, no monthly auto draft from your bank, you will not need your credit card, and you will not have to work it into your monthly budget. Even 5 minutes of meditation can refresh your spirit and well-being. I would start out with 5 minutes and work your way up to a minimum of 30 minutes daily. Physical, emotional and mental beneÂ“ts of meditation Stress reduction Greater emotional balance Increased creative thinking Lower blood pressure Immunity boost Improved productivity Pain relief Increased happiness Improved concentration Improved heart health Spiritual beneÂ“ts of meditation The primary beneÂ“t of meditation is that it helps to create the balance between our inner world (the quiet, interior experience) and our busy, noisy exterior world. As a tool of balance, meditation also helps us access our subtler levels of consciousness. Most human beings only experience the denser dimensions of their physical bodies, emotions, and minds. However, all the great mystics, and now even our modern science, tell us that we are more than just our dense dimensions of body, mind, and emotions. In fact, beyond these three dense dimensions are the subtle dimensions where we experience progressively more truthful states of being. Physical beneÂ“ts of meditation What does meditation do to the brain? Can we even prove something is going on when we meditate? With modern brain-imaging technologies, we can now see the different structures of the brain respond to meditation, and this further proves what the ancients have been teaching us all along. Meditation can improve our length and quality of attention. Studies have found that daily meditation for a few short months improved alertness and visual attention, according to jneurosci.org Meditation is to our mind what exercising at the gym is to our bodies. It prepares us for our daily encounters and helps us in all areas of life from business to personal life. Yes, we all know that relaxation is good for us and that is exactly what yogis have been telling us about meditation for thousands of years. The daily practice of meditation is as essential to your health as the food you eat. According to a recent study at Harvard Medical School, deep relaxation through meditation and yoga changes our body at a genetic and cellular level which means more genes for Â“ghting disease and many other cellular beneÂ“ts. Meditation can be beneÂ“cial in reducing stress. New research from the Shamatha project at the University of California suggests meditation may help lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Anxiety and depression can be substantially reduced in a short period of time with the daily practice of meditation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies have shown that people who meditate regularly have a thickening of the brain near the prefrontal cortex and this helps in limiting negative emotions that are generated by the limbic system. These are the results of a study at McGill University Mindfulness practice leads to increases in regional brain gray matter density, according to Psychaiatry Research: Neuroimaging. Find yourself a quiet room or place where you will not be disturbed. No phone, computer or other people unless also meditating allowed. Sit in a comfortable position or sit in a comfortable chair. Close your eyes to shut off the external stimuli. Focus on your breathing and notice your chest as it rises and falls with each breath. Slow your breathing down and inhale slowly and then exhale slowly. Make sure you expand your lungs when you inhale as much as possible and then exhale as much as possible. Continue to focus on the breathing. Be aware of your breathing and let your mind go. Do not attempt to control your mind. If you Â“nd it running away with you bring it back to your breathing awareness. Just let thoughts Â”ow through your mind. Do not react to them but just be aware. Sit back and observe the thoughts. As you feel anxious or uncomfortable, go back to your breathing focus. Meditation isnÂt difÂ“cult or expensiveÂ…it just takes time. Your wellness and health are worth the 30 minutes a day. Please look forward to a meditation class at First Choice Primary Care soon and experience this for yourself. Wade Smith is an MSN, APRN, FNPC.By WADE SMITHCOLUMNIST Thomas C.

Monday, July 9, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 www.highlandsnewssun.com Get your hearing aids cleaned by a professional on a regular schedule. Why? Because your hearing health care provider has different tools to clean better than what you can do yourself at home. Hearing aids that fit behind the ear may get a build up of debris and corrosion. The aids have removable microphone covers that will get clogged up with scalp and hair debris. They may be vacuumed with little machines or actually be replaced by your provider. Either way, they are removed so that the microphone ports can be cleaned properly. This is not something that you can do yourself. You may have ear molds with tubing that needs to get changed. The tubing is specific to your hearing prescription. If the tubing gets hard then the diameter shrinks and you are no longer getting your prescription. If they are hard they also collect more condensation and you canÂt hear properly through water. If your hearing aids fit in your ear or canal, then they will also have a microphone opening that can collect various debris and oils from your hands. Some will have a removable mic cover and some will not. It is important to keep your microphone clear because this is where external sounds enter the hearing aid. If sound can not enter the hearing aid properly then it will not be amplified correctly. Your aid may sound weak, scratchy, distorted or even stop amplifying if this happens. When your hearing aid is professionally cleaned, they also have special sprays and cleaners that will clean the battery contacts and buttons, thus reducing the production of corrosion and oil build up. It needs to run properly for you to hear your best. If your battery contacts in your car builds up enough gunk and corrosion on them, sooner or later your car wonÂt start. Hearing aids should be cleaned and sanitized. This is done by the professional to reduce possibility of infection. If you get an infection or fungus in one ear it can easily spread to the other simply by touching the other hearing aid and putting it in the ear. Your ÂreceiverÂŽ in your hearing aid is like a speaker. It receives the signal from the microphone, amplifier, and computer chip. It takes this signal and delivers the sound out of the hearing aid into your ear canal. This too can get wax and oil built up. Even aids that have wax guards that the patients change themselves can still get some debris past the wax guard. Thus, the need for a professional to use special equipment to do an advanced clean. Along with special vacuums, at our office we utilize a machine called ÂThe Spin Doctor.ÂŽ This machine allows us to put a cleaning liquid inside of the receiver on hearing aids and insert them into a special cup. The machine spins the aids at a high revolution (like a machine spinning blood) and it actually pulls out wax and oil from inside the receiver. We have managed to save many aids that patients often thought were goners! During your cleaning, the professional will check your hearing aid on an analyzer or computer to make sure the aids are running correctly. Even if you think your aids are running OK, the professional will check to make sure your hearing aids are running to manufacturer capability as well as your programmed prescription. Your hearing aids should be professionally cleaned at least twice per year. Some people produce more ear wax and oil than others. Some people will perspire while others are heavy sweaters. Some will be exposed to more dirt, grease, or debris than others. Your cleaning appointments should be personalized as to how often your hearing health care provider is having to clear your ears of wax, but at least twice per year. #ToHearBetterIsToLiveBetterRoseann B.

In lieu of white bread, reÂ“ned pastas and sugar-laden baked goods, all of which can reduce serotonin levels, the NSF recommends whole grains. The buildup of serotonin in the brain during periods of wakefulness can contribute to the onset of sleep later in the day. If serotonin levels in their brains are disturbed, then people may experience difÂ“culty falling asleep. The NSF also recommends almonds and walnuts, which contain melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate the sleep/wake cycles. In addition, foods that are high in lean protein that contain the amino acid tryptophan also may increase the production of serotonin, potentially contributing to a restful nightÂs sleep.

In Minnesota, public pools must be licensed and often are inspected annually. Regulators check on safety equipment, plumbing and chemical levels. ÂIf they are not meeting the chlorine level, we would do a closure on that until they meet the requirement,ÂŽ said Ryan Krick, an environment health supervisor at the Minneapolis Department of Health. Pool operators are also required to check chemical levels daily and keep a log of chemicals added. But add people to the pools, and that is where the problems begin. ÂIt really is a communal bathtub,ÂŽ said Robinson. ÂYou are sharing water and germs in it with everybody else that is in there.ÂŽ The chlorine and other chemicals help neutralize some things, but many outbreaks have been caused by Cryptosporidium, a tiny parasite that can survive in chlorinated water up to seven days. The source of the problem is human fecal matter. While an accident made by an infant is the nightmare scenario, even the most fastidious adults can be the source if they do not shower before entering the pool. ÂWe can make a lot of people sick if we donÂt take precautions,ÂŽ said Robinson. No one who has not showered should swim in a lake either, but the sheer size of most lakes means the bacteria and microscopic parasites disperse, lessening the chances of infection even if someone swallows water accidentally. Most of the waterborne diseases lead to stomach and intestinal symptoms, including diarrhea, stomach cramps, fever, and vomiting. Tragically, Minnesota has seen two fatalities in children caused from a waterborne amoeba that enters the nose and attacks the brain. Although rare, it is most risky in shallow, warm lakewater. Parents should teach children to try to keep water out of their noses or mouths, Robinson said. Also, people should avoid swimming in areas that are contaminated with animal feces. Some local and state health departments monitor beaches for contamination. ÂSwimming is a really great activity,ÂŽ said Robinson. ÂNo matter where (you are) swimming, try not to swallow the water.ÂŽLAKEFROM PAGE 1They were positive for the BRCA1 mutation, indicating an increased risk for breast and ovarian cancer. ÂIt was pretty upsetting,ÂŽ she says. She immediately consulted medical specialists, including a genetic counselor to conÂ“rm the results and explain her risks in detail, and surgeons to discuss possible prophylactic operations and breast reconstruction. Melinger, who was 36 at the time and had already had two children, opted for the surgeries to reduce her risk and give her peace of mind. She says it was difÂ“cult but she is glad she took the test. ÂFor me, it was really potentially life-saving information. Because I donÂt have a family history, I would not have been on the lookout for this.ÂŽ Home health tests are regulated by the FDA, which provides a database of approved tests on its website. This March, the FDA approved the test Melinger took in 2013, which identiÂ“es three mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes that increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancers. It does not test for all variations, which number in the thousands. Many companies offer home-based genetics tests, and more are coming every day. One, called CellMax Life, also tests saliva samples in a CLIA lab. It currently offers two kits. One aims to identify 25 hereditary cancers by looking for mutations in 98 genes. Another, which focuses on breast cancer, tests not only for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, but also 13 other genes associated with the disease. Prices for home genetic tests vary by company and product, but most charge between $100 and $250 per series. SOME CAUTIONS Megan Frone, a genetics counselor at the National Cancer Institute, thinks providing consumers with more tools for assessing their health can be beneÂ“cial. ÂNot everyone is great at going to the doctor,ÂŽ she says, and home-based tests provide another way to get useful information. Still, Frone urges consumers to exercise caution and do their homework before buying. Her advice: Look for a company with a CLIA lab to ensure it handles samples properly and gets the most accurate results. Find out if your insurance will cover the costs if you donÂt want to pay out of pocket. And ask if the company shares your data with any third parties. Privacy Âis a concern,ÂŽ Frone says. The testsÂ accuracy and detail continue to improve, but for now, Frone tells users to take their results with a grain of salt. For one thing, scientists may not yet know the signiÂ“cance of a particular mutation, leaving consumers in the dark about what to do. The concern, she says, is that consumers Âwalk away with just that small piece of information,ÂŽ not knowing how it Â“ts into the larger picture of their risks or what steps to take next. Users should always follow up with a physician to conÂ“rm results and explain their signiÂ“cance. ÂYou should never make medical management decisionsÂŽ based on home tests alone, Frone says. OTHER HOME-BASED TESTS Nina Mayo of Parma, Ohio, says home testing saved her life. When she refused to get a colonoscopy (an invasive examination of the large intestine for cancer and other diseases) because of the preparation, her doctor offered an alternative: a test she could take at home called Cologuard. Users collect a stool sample, which is then tested for blood and any microscopic DNA fragments shed by a tumor or pre-cancerous lesion. It requires a doctorÂs prescription and costs $649, which some insurance plans cover. Mayo says taking the test was easy. She mailed her sample and received the results two weeks later. They were positive. ÂI was horriÂ“ed,ÂŽ she says. ÂI completely, 100 percent expected a negative result.ÂŽ She was instructed to see a gastroenterologist who recommended a colonoscopy Â„ the standard procedure following a positive result. MayoÂs colonoscopy revealed two, large pre-cancerous lesions, which the doctor removed. She says the doctor told her afterward: ÂYou really dodged a bullet.ÂŽ That illustrates a general lesson. Patients have many good options for screening. But Âat the end of the day,ÂŽ says Dr. Blase Polite, associate professor of medicine at the University of Chicago, Âthe best test is the one that youÂre actually going to get.ÂŽTESTSFROM PAGE 1 FILE PHOTOIt appears that lake water has fewer dangers of waterbone illnesses. Of 633 outbreaks nationwide caused by bacteria, viruses or other things oating around, nearly 80 percent of them were traced to water that was treated with chlorine or other chemicals in swimming pools, hot tubs or wading pools, two studies show.

ItÂs true, and those numbers have steadily risen in recent years. Asthma is more than occasional wheezing or feeling out of breath during physical activity. Asthma is chronic and can lead to coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, fast breathing, and chest tightness, states the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In the 21st century, people spend signiÂ“cant time indoors at home, school or work, and indoor air environments could be triggers for asthma. Improving indoor air quality can help people breathe clearly. The AAFA notes that the following agents can adversely affect indoor air quality, potentially triggering asthma attacks. Allergens Allergens such as mold, dust mites, pet dander and fur, and waste from insects or rodents thrive in many homes. Ensuring indoor air quality is high can cut back on the amount of allergens in the air. People with asthma can invest in an air puriÂ“er and vacuum regularly, being sure to use a HEPA-equipped appliance. Routinely replacing HVAC system Â“lters can help prevent allergens from blowing around the house. Also, frequent maintenance of HVAC systems will ensure they are operating safely and not contributing to poor indoor air quality. Mold can be mitigated by reducing moisture in a home. Moist environments in the kitchen and bathroom may promote mold growth. Ventilation is key to keep mold at bay. Tobacco smoke Thirdhand smoke, or THS, may be unfamiliar to many people. A 2011 report published in Environmental Health Perspectives says THS is an invisible combination of gases and particles that can cling to clothing, cushions, carpeting, and other materials long after secondhand smoke has cleared from a room. Studies have indicated that residual nicotine levels can be found in house dust where people smoke or once smoked. Studies have indicated that smoke compounds can adsorb onto surfaces and then desorb back into air over time. Keeping tobacco smoke out of a home can improve indoor air quality and personal health. VOCs Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are gases released from commonly used products. These can include paints and varnishes, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, new furniture, and new carpet. People with asthma may Â“nd that VOCs can trigger attacks. Airing out items, reducing usage of products that are heavily scented and choosing lowor no-VOC products can help. Making cleaning products from baking soda, vinegar and liquid oil soap also can keep indoor air quality high. Homeowners who plan to renovate their homes can consider using the appropriate speciÂ“cations for HVAC systems to promote good indoor air, as well as address any other potential problems that may be compromising indoor air quality.

Monday, July 9, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9 www.highlandsnewssun.com Study: Anti-rejection drug could help diabeticsGAINESVILLE Â„ A drug used to help kidney transplant recipients ward off rejection of their new organs is showing promise in another area: preserving insulin production in newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes patients. A TrialNet study led by University of Florida Health researchers sought to determine whether the drug thymoglobulin, alone or in combination with another drug, could slow insulin loss. Clinical trial participants given a low dose of the medication, also known as ATG, had higher levels of insulin production compared with placebo recipients, the research revealed. The drug also reduced signiÂ“cantly reduced hemoglobin A1c levels, a long-term measure of average blood sugar levels, in participants with new-onset Type 1 diabetes. ÂIt gives us hope that we really are on the right path to preventing and reversing Type 1 diabetes,ÂŽ said Dr. Michael Haller, a UF Diabetes Institute researcher and the studyÂs lead author. ÂWe still have a long way to go but this is a remarkable success that we should celebrate. These Â“ndings remind us and our patients that we are indeed making progress.ÂŽ The Â“ndings by the TrialNet research consortium of 14 universities and research institutions were presented June 25 at the American Diabetes Association ScientiÂ“c Sessions in Orlando. TrialNet enrolled 89 people between ages 12 and 45 who were diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the past 100 days. Some study participants received ATG, while others were given a placebo or ATG combined with another drug. A year later, insulin production had increased in those given low-dose ATG. In Type 1 diabetes, the bodyÂs immune system attacks insulin-producing islet cells in the pancreas. The pancreas produces insulin to control the level of sugar in the blood. Elevated and uncontrolled blood sugar levels can lead to a variety of complications and, if left untreated, result in death. Essentially, ATG works by killing immune cells that have Âgone rogue.ÂŽ It targets white blood cells that attack and kill insulin-producing beta cells instead of attacking viruses or bacteria that invade the body. Lowdose ATG appears to target these ÂrogueÂŽ cells without disrupting other types of beneÂ“cial white blood cells, Haller said. ATGÂs long history of FDA approval for use in kidney transplantation is particularly encouraging because that could accelerate its potential approval as a Type 1 diabetes drug should ongoing studies show promise, Haller noted. ÂWe are excited about these important Â“ndings and the potential to conduct additional studies to test ATG even earlier in the disease process, prior to symptoms and clinical diagnosis, as well as later in the disease process for patients with more established Type 1 diabetes,ÂŽ he said. The Â“ndings resulted from years of research that started in animal models and progressed to humans. While itÂs not a way to permanently cure or prevent the onset of Type 1 diabetes, Haller said itÂs an important milestone that underscores the need for more research funding. All participants in the trial will complete two years of study follow-up by August. Final Â“ndings will be reported in 2019. Low-dose ATG carries some side effects, although researchers deemed them predictable and manageable. Typically, they include a few minutes of muscle soreness, nausea or headache during the intravenous infusion, and two-thirds of patients receiving low-dose ATG experienced two to three days of Â”u-like symptoms about a week later. The ultimate duration of ATGÂs effectiveness isnÂt yet known, but Haller said it may be possible to prevent additional insulin loss by re-treating patients with the drug or other interventions. Haller said he would also like to study the drugÂs potential for preventing diabetes in those who have biological markers that precede Type 1 diabetes.SPECIAL TO HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN HALLER Â€Asthma causes swelling of the airways. This results in narrowing of the airways that carry air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Allergens or irritating things entering the lungs trigger asthma symptoms. Symptoms include trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. Asthma can be deadly. Â€There is no cure for asthma, but it can be managed with proper prevention of asthma attacks and treatment. Â€More Americans than ever before have asthma. It is one of this countryÂs most common and costly diseases. Â€According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 13 people have asthma. Â€Asthma is more common in adult women than adult men. Â€African-Americans in the U.S. die from asthma at a higher rate than people of other races or ethnicities. Â€Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children. Â€Asthma is more common in boys than girls. Â€Each day, 10 Americans die from asthma, and in 2015, 3,615 people died from asthma. Many of these deaths are avoidable with proper treatment and care. Â€Adults are four times more likely to die from asthma than children.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 9, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Home improvement projects are as popular as ever. In its 2017 True Cost Survey, the home improvement site HomeAdvisor found that, between February 2016 and February 2017, homeowners spent an average of just over $5,000 on home projects. That marked a nearly $1,900 increase from the year prior, indicating that homeowners are increasingly opening their wallets to transform their homes. In addition to spending money to improve their homes, many homeowners are spending their time on projects as well. While DIY projects can provide a sense of fulÂ“llment and personal attachment to oneÂs home, prospective do-it-yourselfers should ask themselves some questions before picking up their hammers and getting to work. Do I have any physical limitations? No matter how much home improvement television shows may simplify projects, prospective DIYers should know that such undertakings are typically very difÂ“cult and oftentimes physically demanding. Homeowners with existing health conditions or other physical limitations may not be capable of performing certain tasks or may need to take frequent breaks, which can delay projects. Do I have the time? Many home improvement projects require a signiÂ“cant amount of time to complete. Homeowners whose time is already stretched thin with commitments to work and/or family may not be able to complete projects within a reasonable amount of time. ThatÂs Â“ne if working on a part of the home that wonÂt affect daily life, but can prove stressful or problematic if the project is in a room, such as a kitchen or bathroom, that residents of the home use each day. Novice DIYers should be especially honest with themselves about the time they have available to work on the project, as such homeowners are bound to experience a few time-consuming missteps along the way. Can I afford it? While DIY might seem more affordable than hiring a contractor, thatÂs not necessarily true. Novice DIYers may need to buy or rent tools, costs that can add up. Contractors already have the tools necessary to begin and complete projects, so the cost savings of DIY might not be as significant as homeowners think. Before going the DIY route, homeowners should solicit estimates from contractors, comparing the estimates to how much a project will cost if homeowners do it themselves. Can I go it alone? Many home improvement projects require more than one set of hands, and itÂs risky and even foolish for Â“rst-time DIYers to assume they can begin a project and see it through to completion entirely on their own. Homeowners whose spouses, partners, friends, or relatives are willing to chip in may think thatÂs enough. However, the DIY skills of those who volunteer may be a mystery until the project begins. Novice DIYers should enlist the help of a friend or family member with home improvement experience. If no such person is available, it may be wise to hire a contractor instead.Questions to ask before embracing DIYMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS People choose to learn Yoga for different reasons. If you are a ÂbodybuilderÂŽ you may want to know how Yoga postures can improve coordination and strength. You may have friends who have taken a Yoga class and told you how much better they feel and, thus, want to continue to incorporate this regular practice into their life. What are the overall beneÂ“ts to the body when practicing Yoga? First, Yoga is about deep breathing (inhales and exhales) which increases oxygen in the cells of the muscles, tissues, organs as well as removing the toxins with each exhale. As you incorporate deep breathing with each posture that is a slow moving, the body becomes more Â”exible. When you hold the posture in place and breathe, you begin to understand internal/ external alignment that compliments the skeletal system, freeing up energy locked into poor posture and thus limiting movement for daily act ivies such as walking, running swimming, playing soccer or sports. Yoga is beneÂ“cial to people of all ages, not only athletes, but many who sit all day and work on the computer. There are many articles that delineate the concern of concentrating the mind/ body/energy into technology holding the phone long periods of time with a crooked neck, or hunched over the lap top, frozen in a chair. Further, there is a book by a techno expert that posses a unique concern: How technology has destroyed happiness. One of his main points is the lack of Âhuman socialization,ÂŽ choosing the substitute of technology for human communication. Instead of personally participating in human interaction in an activity-centered class such as Yoga that stimulates physical/mental/emotional spiritual stimulation, many people choose isolation, or impersonal contact through various so-called Âsocial networks.ÂŽ Is this impersonal contact advancing communication and exploration of human concerns such as improving the body through a physical practice as the gym, sports, dancing and sharing laughter? Yoga is meant to be a fun, exploratory practice in which students enjoy participating, sharing, learning and beneÂ“ting for their individual purpose. Yoga offers poses, breathing and new structural guidelines to renew the body (not based on chronology) but dedication to the practice, taking it home and integrated it into everyday activates. Yoga can be practiced anywhere with or without a Yoga mat. At work, a person can take a break, stand tall in Mountain Pose, inhaling and exhaling deeply with eyes closed, forward bending and lengthening the spine. Visualizing the body renewing right where you stand adding twists, side bends, leg raises and toe lifts are all simple Yoga postures. Next time you want to take a mental, emotional rest from technology ÂaddictionÂŽ think about joking other humans who share an idea of growth, awakening personal consciousness and deterring an individual pathway to happiness by choosing the like minds of those of attend a Yoga class. You will reap beneÂ“ts that you may not have imagined. See you there!

The News Wire Monday, July 9, 2018 STATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHER ÂAnt-Man and the WaspÂ buzzes to $76million debutS ee page 8 Volunteer groups from several U.S. states were stranded in Haiti Sunday after violent protests over fuel prices canceled Â”ights and made roads unsafe. Church groups in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Alabama are among those that havenÂt been able to leave, according to newspaper and television reports. Some Â”ights were resuming Sunday afternoon, according to airline ofÂ“cials and the Â”ight tracking website FlightAware. American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein said in an email that two Â”ights bound for Miami and one for New York had taken off Sunday afternoon. But even getting to an airport could be risky, U.S. ofÂ“cials warned. The U.S. State Department issued an alert Sunday urging its citizens on the island to shelter in place and not to go to an airport unless travelers had conÂ“rmed their departing Â”ight was taking off. Dr. Salil Bhende, a North Carolina dentist, said in a phone interview that a group of about 16 dental clinic volunteers was supposed to Â”y out Sunday from Port Au Prince but couldnÂt make it to the airport because the roads were unsafe. After encountering rubble and garbage in the road, the group turned back to a church about 45 minutes outside the capital city where it was staying. Airline ofÂ“cials told them they might not be able to get a Â”ight home until Tuesday, Bhende said. ÂThere were a lot of blockages,ÂŽ he told The Associated Press. ÂIt was very difÂ“cult to get to the airport, so we just turned around, basically, to be safe.ÂŽ Another member of the group, Pastor Fred Stapleton of Cornerstone Covenant Church in western North Carolina, said the volunteers have plenty of food and feel safe in the church. ÂNobody here is afraid for their life, or anything like that,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe people have taken care of us. WeÂve been kept in a safe place.ÂŽ Chapin United Methodist Church in South Carolina posted online Sunday that its mission team is safe but stranded. Marcy Kenny, assimilation minister for the church, told The State newspaper Haiti unrest strands some US volunteer groupsBY ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON Â„ The Trump administration is freezing payments under an ÂObamacareÂŽ program that protects insurers with sicker patients from Â“nancial losses, a move expected to add to premium increases next year. At stake are billions in payments to insurers with sicker customers. The latest administration action could disrupt the Affordable Care Act, the health care law that has withstood President Donald TrumpÂs efforts to completely repeal it. In a weekend announcement, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the administration is acting because of conÂ”icting court ruling in lawsuits Â“led by some smaller insurers who question whether they are being fairly treated under the program. The so-called Ârisk adjustmentÂŽ program takes payments from insurers with healthier customers and redistributes that money to companies with sicker enrollees. Payments for 2017 are $10.4 billion. No taxpayer subsidies are involved. The idea behind the program is to remove the Â“nancial incentive for insurers to Âcherry pickÂŽ healthier customers. The government uses a similar approach with Medicare private insurance plans and the Medicare prescription drug beneÂ“t. Major insurer groups said Saturday the administrationÂs action interferes with a program thatÂs working well. The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, whose members are a mainstay of Affordable Care Act coverage, said it was Âextremely disappointedÂŽ with the administrationÂs action. The Trump administrationÂs move Âwill signiÂ“cantly increase 2019 premiums for millions of individuals and small business owners and could result in far fewer health Trump administration takes another swipe at ÂObamacareÂBy RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARASSOCIATED PRESSMAE SAI, Thailand Â„ Expert divers Sunday rescued four of 12 boys from a Â”ooded cave in northern Thailand where they were trapped with their soccer coach for more than two weeks, as a dangerous and complicated plan unfolded amid heavy rain and the threat of rising water underground. Eight of boys and the coach remained inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex as authorities paused the international effort until Monday to replenish air tanks along the treacherous exit route. But the success of the initial evacuation raised hopes that all will be out soon, although ofÂ“cials said could it take up to four days to complete. ÂThe operation went much better than expected,ÂŽ said Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is overseeing the mission. He told reporters that four boys were brought out and taken to the hospital in the town of Chiang Rai, the provincial capital, for evaluation, and the next phase of the operation will resume after about 10-20 hours. The names of the rescued boys were not released. His announcement, at a news conference more than an hour after helicopters and ambulances were seen rushing from the cave area, drew cheers and applause. Narongsak had dubbed Sunday to be ÂD-dayÂŽ as the complicated effort was launched in the morning. He said 13 foreign divers and Â“ve Thai navy SEALs were taking part in the key leg of the rescue: taking the boys from where they have been sheltering and through dark, tight and twisting passageways Â“lled with muddy water and strong currents. Two divers were to accompany each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the Â“rst searchers found them. Cave rescue experts consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving. The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Gunan, underscored the risks. The diver, the Â“rst fatality of the WASHINGTON Â„ With the established global order on shaky footing, President Donald TrumpÂs weeklong trip to Europe will test already strained bonds with some of the United StatesÂ closest allies, then put him face to face with the leader of the country whose electoral interference was meant to help put him in ofÂ“ce. Trump departs Tuesday on a four-nation tour amid simmering disputes over trade and military spending with fellow Western democracies and speculation about whether he will rebuke or embrace Russian President Vladimir Putin. He meets the Russian leader in Helsinki as the Â“nale of a trip with earlier stops in Belgium, England and Scotland. Trump has shown little regard for AmericaÂs traditional bonds with the Old World, publicly upbraiding world leaders at NATOÂs new headquarters a year ago for not spending enough on defense and delivering searing indictments of Western trading partners last month at an international summit in Canada.

Abbas told a meeting of Fatah party leaders Sunday that his government will keep paying Âour martyrs and prisoners and wounded peopleÂŽ as it has since 1965. The stipends total approximately $330 million, which is about 7 percent of the Palestinian AuthorityÂs $5 billion budget in 2018. Israel says the payments encourage violence, a claim the Palestinians dismiss. Abbas also voiced opposition to the Trump administrationÂs efforts to restart the IsraeliPalestinian peace process. He said he will not let TrumpÂs ÂDeal of the CenturyÂŽ work, saying some Arab countries have also rejected the U.S. plan. DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) Â„ Syrian air defense units responded late Sunday to an Israeli ÂaggressionÂŽ on an air base in the countryÂs central province of Homs, shooting down several missiles, state TV said. The channel, quoting an unidentiÂ“ed military ofÂ“cial, said the attack targeted the T4 air base with six missiles. The report did not mention any casualties but said one warplane was hit and several missiles were shot down before reaching their target. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said the missiles targeted Iranian troops and non-Syrian proIranian Â“ghters.

We must forsake sin and self and follow Jesus. BERLIN (AP) Â„ A group of city counselors in Munich say they want the southern German cityÂs main train station to have a landing pad for flying taxis. Five city council members from the Christian Social Union party submitted a motion Wednesday calling on rail company Deutsche Bahn to consider the space needed for flying taxis in its plans for a future redesign of the station. In their motion, they write that Âit is to be expected that within a few years technology will have advanced so far that flying taxis can be used to transport people.ÂŽ The party, which has a majority across Bavaria but is in opposition in the state capitalÂs assembly, has recently been championing the idea of flying taxis as a future means of travel.ODD NEWS Munich officials want train station to have air taxi parkingUnited Kingdom, where widespread protests are expected, before he heads to one of his Scottish golf resorts for the weekend. In the run-up to his trip, the president did little to ease European concerns by delivering fresh broadsides against NATO, an intergovernmental military alliance of 29 North American and European countries aimed at countering possible Russian aggression. ÂIÂll tell NATO: ÂYouÂve got to start paying your bills,ÂÂŽ Trump pledged at a rally last week in Montana in which he bemoaned that Americans were Âthe schmucks that are paying for the whole thing.ÂŽ He then laced into German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who will be in attendance in Brussels, complaining about how much the United States put toward GermanyÂs defense: ÂAnd I said, you know, Angela, I canÂt guarantee it, but weÂre protecting you, and it means a lot more to you. ... I donÂt know how much protection we get from protecting you.ÂŽ At the same time, he declared that ÂPutin is Â“neÂŽ and that he had been preparing for their summit Âall my life.ÂŽ Experts fear the trip could produce a repeat of the dynamics from TrumpÂs last trip abroad, when he admonished Group of Seven allied nations at a summit in Canada before heading to Singapore, where he showered praise on one of AmericaÂs longeststanding adversaries, North KoreaÂs Kim Jong Un. Trump is expected to continue to press NATO nations to fulÂ“ll their commitments to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense by 2024. Trump has argued that countries not paying their fair share are freeloading off the U.S. and has threatened to stop protecting those he feels pay too little. NATO estimates that 15 members, or just over half, will meet the benchmark by 2024 based on current trends. Trump sent letters to the leaders of several NATO countries ahead of his visit, warning that it would become Âincreasingly difÂ“cult to justify to American citizens why some countries fail to meet our shared collective security commitments.ÂŽ The ties between the U.S. and many of its longest-standing allies have frayed since Trump took ofÂ“ce and put his ÂAmerica Â“rstÂŽ agenda into practice. He has pulled the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement as well as the Iran nuclear deal, slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, and threatened additional tariffs on products like automobiles. Although administration ofÂ“cials point to the long-standing alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, TrumpÂs itinerary will largely keep him out of central London, where signiÂ“cant protests are expected. Instead, a series of events Â„ a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II Â„ will happen outside the bustling city, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been in a verbal battle with Trump. Woody Johnson, TrumpÂs ambassador to the U.K., said the president is aware of the planned protests but insisted that Trump Âappreciates free speechÂŽ in both countries. The G-7 world leadersÂ meeting in Canada last month ended in tumult when Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the groupÂs Â“nal joint statement after his departure and railed against Trudeau by midÂ”ight tweet en route to Singapore for his summit with Kim, a meeting that critics said legitimized Kim on the world stage without securing a clear pathway to the denuclearization. ÂThe president was willing to offer concessions to Kim without getting anything speciÂ“c or concrete in return,ÂŽ said Jeffrey Rathke, deputy director of the Europe Program at the nonpartisan Center for Strategic and International Studies. He said the decision had sparked Âkind of a frenzyÂŽ about what concessions Trump might be willing to offer Putin without NATO signoff. On PutinÂs wish list: an end to U.S. military exercises in Europe and the scaling back of U.S. forces there. The summit also will offer Putin a chance to try to persuade Trump to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russia over its 2014 annexation of Crimea, its support for separatists Â“ghting the government in eastern Ukraine and its alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Trump has already met with Putin twice as president, including a meeting on the sidelines of a summit in Germany that stretched for more than two hours. But plans for a full-Â”edged summit had been delayed amid the FBI and congressional probes into whether Trump campaign aides coordinated with Russia to help Trump win the election. Trump has dismissed those probes as nothing but a Âwitch hunt.ÂŽNATOFROM PAGE 1rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place oxygen canisters along the route. But Narongsak said earlier that mild weather and falling water levels in recent days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation. Those conditions wonÂt last if the rain resumes, he said. After the four boys were removed from the cave, heavy rain started falling. Authorities have said the monsoons could cause water to rise in the cave. That along with dwindling oxygen levels, added to the urgency of getting the team out. Earlier efforts to pump water out of the cave have been set back by heavy downpours. Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him new rain could shrink the unÂ”ooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 108 square feet. The next phase of the operation would start Monday after rescue teams replenish the supply of oxygen tanks along the route to ensure the safety of the journey, which takes several hours. On Sunday night, Thai navy SEALs posted a celebratory note on their Facebook page, saying: ÂHave sweet dreams everyone. Good night. Hooyah.ÂŽ The boys and their coach became stranded when they were exploring the cave after a practice game on June 23. Monsoon Â”ooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from Â“nding them for almost 10 days. The ordeal has riveted Thailand and captured the worldÂs attention. The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of international experts and rescuers, including a U.S. military team. Elon MuskÂs Space X rocket company plans to send a Âtiny kid-sized submarineÂŽ in case itÂs needed. A spokesman for MusksÂ Boring Co. tunneling unit, which has four engineers at the cave, said in an email Sunday that Thai ofÂ“cials had requested the device and that divers have determined it could potentially help the children through narrow, Â”ooded cave passageways. Musk said on Twitter the aluminum sub would be tested until Sunday midafternoon California time before being placed on a 17-hour Â”ight to Thailand. He posted a video of a diver testing the device in a pool. President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday: ÂThe U.S. is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety. Very brave and talented people!ÂŽ To ensure a clear path for getting evacuees to the hospital and to safeguard their privacy, authorities ordered the media to move away from the cave before the boys came out. The boys sounded calm and reassuring in handwritten notes to their families that were made public Saturday. The notes were sent out with divers who made an 11-hour, back-and-forth journey.In a letter of his own, coach Ekapol Chanthawong apologized to the boysÂ parents for the ordeal. ÂTo the parents of all the kids, right now the kids are all Â“ne, the crew are taking good care. I promise I will care for the kids as best as possible. I want to say thanks for all the support and I want to apologize to the parents,ÂŽ he wrote.CAVEFROM PAGE 1plan choices,ÂŽ association president Scott Serota said in a statement. ÂIt will undermine AmericansÂ access to affordable coverage, particularly those who need medical care the most.ÂŽ Serota noted that the payments are required by law and said he believes the administration has the legal authority to continue making them despite the court cases. He warned of ÂturmoilÂŽ as insurers Â“nalize their rates for 2019. AmericaÂs Health Insurance Plans, the main health insurance industry trade group, said in a statement that it is Âvery discouragedÂŽ by the Trump administrationÂs decision to freeze payments. Rumors that the Trump administration would freeze payments were circulating late last week. But the Saturday announcement via email was unusual for such a major step. The administration argued in its announcement that its hands were tied by conÂ”icting court rulings in New Mexico and Massachusetts. Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Seema Verma said the Trump administration was disappointed by a New Mexico court ruling that questioned the workings of the risk program for insurers. The administration Âhas asked the court to reconsider its ruling, and hopes for a prompt resolution that allows (the government) to prevent more adverse impacts on Americans who receive their insurance in the individual and small group markets,ÂŽ she said. More than 10 million people buy individual health insurance plans through HealthCare. gov and state insurance marketplaces. The vast majority of those customers receives taxpayer subsidies under the Obama-era health law and would be shielded from premium increases next year. The brunt of higher prices would fall on solid middle-class consumers who are not eligible for the income-based subsidies. Many of those are self-employed people and small-business owners, generally seen as a Republican constituency. The latest ÂObamacareÂŽ Â”are-up does not affect most people with employer coverage.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1 that the group is hoping the unrest will abate enough for them to make it to the airport. ÂTheyÂre just waiting for things to die down a little bit,ÂŽ Kenny said. About 30 volunteers from a Bradenton, Florida, church were unable to make it to the airport Saturday because of protesters blocking the streets, according to the Bradenton Herald. The group from Woodland Community Church includes about 18 teens, plus ministers and a handful of parents, said Jill Kramer, whose 15-year-old daughter is on the trip. They tried to leave for the airport early Saturday morning but turned back after they encountered protesters. Kramer, who spoke to her daughter by phone, said the group has food, water and safe shelter at the nonproÂ“t group where they had been working. ÂThe mission team, the directors they all decided it just wasnÂt worth it to go farther,ÂŽ Kramer told the newspaper.HAITIFROM PAGE 1 SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) Â„ The remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl swept over the tiny island of Dominica on Sunday evening as forecasters in the eastern Caribbean warned of the dangers from heavy rains on islands struggling to recover from last yearÂs deadly hurricanes. DominicaÂs government had said it would shut down the water system, while Puerto RicoÂs governor warned of likely new power outages. People on islands across the region had rushed to stock up on food and water and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said 2 to 3 inches of rain could fall on Dominica, with up to 5 inches possible in spots. Beryl, which had been the Atlantic seasonÂs Â“rst hurricane, disintegrated as a tropical storm shortly before reaching Dominica. But the hurricane center said it still had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph as it zipped over Dominica moving westnorthwestward at 26 mph. Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit warned people to stay alert and respect an island-wide curfew to remain indoors. ÂWe have to continue to take the situation very seriously,ÂŽ he said in a public address. Meteorologist Marshall Alexander told The Associated Press that ofÂ“cials were worried about people still living with tarps on their roofs after Hurricane Maria slammed into Dominica as a Category 5 storm last year, killing dozens of people. ÂWe are in a vulnerable state,ÂŽ he said. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris formed off the Carolinas, and the U.S. hurricane center said it was likely to grow into a hurricane while heading to the northeast, roughly parallel to the coast. It wasnÂt projected to directly threaten land over the next few days, though forecasters said it could kick up dangerous surf and rip tides. In the Caribbean, a tropical storm watch was up for Dominica and long lines were reported at grocery stores on several islands as people shopped for food and water. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said at a news conference Sunday afternoon that the island could experience power outages when the stormÂs remnants passed over on Monday. He also urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or one of 24 government shelters that have opened. More than 1,500 power customers remain in the dark more than nine months after Maria, and some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs. ÂIÂm praying for all the brothers who are still living under a plastic roof,ÂŽ said Alfonso Lugo in the southeastern Puerto Rico town of Humacao. Lugo lost his roof and two walls to Maria and was waiting for volunteers to secure his new roof before Beryl. Forecasters said Puerto Rico could see winds of 15 to 25 mph as well as 2 to 3 inches of rain that could cause Â”ooding and mudslides.Remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl sweeps onto DominicaTropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of the season, was expected to become a hurricane off the Carolinas by Monday, the National Hurricane Center said. The storm continued to strengthen Sunday, but stagnated nearly 180 miles the coast of south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., according to the hurricane center. The stormÂs maximum sustained winds were 50 mph. Forecasters expected Chris to strengthen. Chris will likely remain off the coast of the Carolinas for the next two or three days before heading toward the Northeast on Tuesday, according to the advisory. It was not expected to pose a threat to the U.S., but the storm could impact the east coast of Canada, according to the ofÂ“cial weather agencies in both countries. The Miami-based National Hurricane CenterÂs forecast put the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in the probable path of the storm.Tropical Storm Chris expected to intensifyBy SUSANNAH BRYANSUN SENTINELFROM PAGE ONE
The Sun /Monday, July 9, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger SaturdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I was shocked recently when I read an article from a reputable source implying that sooner rather than later (and maybe already), doctors who have a patient who could be treated successfully only with massive doses of antibiotics would be required to allow the patient to die rather than run the risk of creating a generation of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. In other words, one person must die for the sake of many. While I understand the logic of this, I also nd it profoundly disturbing on many levels, and wonder what your comments might be. Â„ J.F. ANSWER: As physicians, we are obliged to act primarily in the best interests of our patients Â„ not ourselves, and not society. Therefore, in the case of a patient who would die without the only eective antibiotic, our primary duty would be to use the antibiotic in hopes of saving our patient, recognizing that this may reduce the eectiveness of the antibiotic in the future. Of course, we should take great pains to isolate the patient so that this hypothetical resistant superbug does not get out and spread to other people. This happens in hospitals every day now. Hospitals have systems in place to restrict certain antibiotics to lifethreatening situations when only those antibiotics are eective. This is done to minimize the risk of developing bacteria that are resistant to all our antibiotics. Unfortunately, despite this, there occasionally are times in the hospital when there are no eective antibiotics, and people die because of highly resistant bacteria despite all our best attempts. We would never let someone die because of the possibility of resistance. We would never withhold a potentially useful antibiotic if it was expected to help. This is part of the physician's ethics. DEAR DR. ROACH: Please address a baby boomer health concern: hepatitis C. A television advertisement stated that a blood test can reveal its presence and that there is eective medication to cure it. How does hepatitis C aect a person? Â„ E.B. ANSWER: Hepatitis C is far more common than most people realize. In the United States, about 1 percent of adults have chronic infection Â„ that's approximately 3 million people. The number is slightly lower in Canada. About half of people with hepatitis C do not know that they are infected, as it frequently has no symptoms for many years. Because hepatitis C may lead to severe complications Â„ including cirrhosis, liver cancer, liver failure and need for transplantation Â„ identifying people early so that they can be treated has become a priority, especially since new treatments have become available that are eective and have few side eects. You mentioned baby boomers, and they indeed are a high-risk group who should be screened for hepatitis C. (Denitions of "baby boomer" vary, but people born between 1945 and 1965 are recommended for screening.) If that's you, ask your doctor if you have already been screened, and if not, request it. Apart from people born during this time, other people who should be screened for hepatitis C include anyone with HIV infection, anyone on hemodialysis, anyone incarcerated and people from high-risk countries, especially Central and East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. Screening is easy and safe: a simple blood test. Finding out that you are negative is a relief. Finding out that you are positive is potentially life-saving.DEAR ABBY: Our son and his ancee are having a destination wedding. My husband and I are hosting a local reception here where we live because we would like our close family and friends to be able to celebrate their wedding. Our problem is, our 24-year-old daughter is an alcoholic who doesn't see her drinking as a problem. She got so drunk at the last family wedding that the police and paramedics had to be called. She's currently on probation because she assaulted a paramedic. My husband does want to include her at the party we are having in our city. Because she is uncontrollable and unpredictable, I do not want her there. My husband thinks he will be able to control her and that it won't "look right" if the sister of the groom is absent. What should we do? Â„ Mother Of The Groom DEAR MOTHER: Because her behavior is unpredictable, and there is a possibility she will disrupt the reception, she should not attend. What your daughter needs is an intervention, not an invitation. DEAR ABBY: I'm a newlywed, married to an amazing man who also brought me an adorable 5-year-old stepson. Although we married only three months ago, I have been in both of their lives for three years. We recently found out we are expecting, and I am over the moon! My question to you is, while this baby is my rst, he or she is clearly his second. How do I answer when people ask if this is our rst baby? I never thought I would have this dilemma. Â„ Over The Moon In Las Vegas DEAR OVER THE MOON: If you are asked if this is your rst baby, reply that it is your rst but your husband's second. And when you do, be sure to tell the "asker" how much you would appreciate any advice the person would care to share about infants, and I'm sure you'll get an earful. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is a reply to a letter written by another reader about disposable diapers.

Page 6 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, July 9, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Does it feel as if someone is pushing you from behind? ThatÂs you. But itÂs weird, because youÂre also the one digging in your heels because you want to stand your ground. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Laughter is, at its very roots, a social response. We laugh to support one another. However, not everyone gets the joke. So, if you nd yourself laughing alone, it doesnÂt necessarily mean itÂs not funny. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Criticism isnÂt going to work for anyone who uses it as a tool. ItÂs a blunt tool, for starters. Secondly, it puts the other person on the defensive and makes the person more apt to ght than learn. If instead of criticism you oer solutions, youÂll be golden. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though itÂs immature and intolerant to expect everyone to have the same moral code, you do expect people to uphold whichever moral code they have chosen. You accept dierences, but not hypocrisy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes people agree with you but they still present a contrary opinion. Maybe they want your attention. Maybe itÂs their way of being playful. Just because youÂre invited to the argument doesnÂt mean you have to attend. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). DonÂt be quick to dismiss the endeavor that looks dicult. The best things are won through work. ItÂs not a coincidence. ItÂs the work that makes them the best things. Process lls things with life and gives them their value. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you sacrice your health to make money, youÂll have to sacrice your money to regain your health. Put safety rst and then health. Well-being of other sorts, including nancial, will follow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). To be in agreement with others may feel the most comfortable, but itÂs neither the best nor the only way to coexist peaceably. ItÂs a tolerance of diversity that makes the group stronger and more peaceful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). WhatÂs won through trial may not be won fair and square, but itÂs ocial, and the verdict will stick. Once itÂs handed down, it will be a useless eort to retry. Move on to better things. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Opinions and beliefs will change with the times. YouÂve experienced this a lot already, and you will continue to adapt beautifully to new places and circumstances. ThatÂs why you accept your friendÂs change of heart. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Prestige is an abstract, collective impression that would be foolish to value over the more tangible aspects of daily experience. No good will come of a thing that is prestigious but makes your life stressful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Enjoying the talents of others will aggravate something in you Â„ a desire to pursue your own talents with more commitment and fervor. Work hard until your abilities match your ambition. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (July 9). The love you give will double up on the return. ThereÂs no greater feeling than the overwhelm that comes with this exponential emotional equation! Excellent communication makes this possible. YouÂll actively work on being more eective in this regard. Listening and observing well will make all parts of your life better. Aquarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 27, 11, 24 and 17.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, July 9, 2018 ENTERTAINMENT NEWSNEW YORK Â„ Despite its heroesÂ diminutive size, ÂAnt-Man and the WaspÂŽ opened with typical Marvel might at the box ofÂ“ce, with an estimated $76 million in ticket sales. According to studio estimates Sunday, the ÂAnt-ManÂŽ sequel easily surpassed the $57 million debut of the 2015 original in North America. The 20th Â“lm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Â„ and the 20th to debut No. 1 at the box ofÂ“ce Â„ ÂAnt-Man and the WaspÂŽ comes on the heels of two mammoth Marvel successes this year: ÂBlack PantherÂŽ and ÂAvengers: InÂ“nity War.ÂŽ While the Â“rst ÂAntMan,ÂŽ starring Paul Rudd, had a rocky road to release due to a late director change, the rollout of the sequel, directed by Peyton Reed, was smoother. Cathleen Taff, head of distribution for Disney, credited a marketing campaign that played up the Â“lm as a more modest, funny and light-hearted change-of-pace for Marvel following the grandiosity of ÂInÂ“nity War.ÂŽ ÂIt came in at the high end of our range and deÂ“nitely sized-up the sequel,ÂŽ said Taff. ÂAnt-Man and the Wasp,ÂŽ with a reported production budget of about $160 million, may have performed well enough to Â“rmly establish its place among MarvelÂs more main-line superheroes. Reviews were good (86 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences gave it an A-minus CinemaScore. Ticket sales overseas added another $85 million. BeÂ“tting the summer season, the weekendÂs top Â“ve Â“lms were all sequels. The weekendÂs other new wide release was Blumhouse ProductionsÂ ÂFirst Purge,ÂŽ the fourth Â“lm in the low-budget horror franchise about an annual 12-hour period of lawlessness. With July 4th falling on a Wednesday and thus depriving Hollywood of a holiday weekend, Universal opted to release ÂFirst PurgeÂŽ on Wednesday, while ÂAnt-ManÂŽ waited for the customary Thursday night previews. ÂFirst PurgeÂŽ debuted with $32 million over the Â“ve-day frame, and $18.5 million for the weekend. Particularly following 2016Âs ÂThe Purge: Election Year,ÂŽ the franchise has made satirical jabs at social commentary. ÂFirst Purge,ÂŽ a Staten Island-set prequel, focuses on the ritualÂs origins as a method of culling minorities. ÂBlumhouse just continues to overdeliver for us,ÂŽ said Jim Orr, distribution chief for BlumhouseÂs distribution partner, Universal. ÂThe Purge franchise continually comments on issues that are current in society, obviously through a kind of dark and distorted lens. Tying it to the July Fourth holiday made a lot of sense.ÂŽ Some Los Angeles theaters overperformed, executives said, likely due to those seeking air conditioning during the Southern California heat wave. But whether due to travelor weather-related reasons, nationwide ticket sales were unexpectedly soft on Saturday. The weekend was about 10 percent off the pace of the same weekend last year, when ÂSpiderMan: HomecomingÂŽ opened, according to comScore. But the summer box ofÂ“ce overall, up 13.5 percent from last year, remains robust. The Â“lms that trailed ÂAnt-ManÂŽ hit their own milestones. DisneyÂs ÂIncredibles 2ÂŽ passed ÂFinding DoryÂŽ to become PixarÂs top-grossing Â“lm domestically, not accounting for inÂ”ation. It earned $29 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $504 million and its worldwide haul to $773 million. With $28.6 million in its third weekend, UniversalÂs ÂJurassic World: Fallen KingdomÂŽ crossed $1 billion worldwide. ItÂs done especially well internationally, which has made up 69 percent of the dinosaur sequelÂs global footprint. As a clear alternative to the multiplex offerings, the ÂMister RogersÂŽ documentary ÂWonÂt You Be My NeighborÂŽ continued to perform as an art-house sensation. Ranking ninth for the weekend (in between ÂTagÂŽ and ÂDeadpool 2ÂŽ), the Focus Features release earned $2.6 million in 893 theaters over the weekend. With $12.4 million in Â“ve weeks, itÂs the yearÂs top documentary at the box ofÂ“ce, edging out the Ruth Bader Ginsburg doc ÂRBG.ÂŽ Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday also are included. Final domestic Â“gures will be released Monday. 1. ÂAnt-Man and the Wasp,ÂŽ $76 million. 2. ÂIncredibles 2,ÂŽ $29 million. 3. ÂJurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,ÂŽ $28.6 million. 4. ÂThe First Purge,ÂŽ $17.2 million. 5. ÂSicario: Day of the Soldado,ÂŽ $7.3 million. 6.

Â„ Elvis PresleyÂs Rolls Royce, the suits the Beatles wore on their Â“rst tour of America, Bruce SpringsteenÂs sleeveless faded denim jacket and colorful headband, and Michael JacksonÂs famous glove are among the items of music memorabilia on display at Atlantic CityÂs new Hard Rock casino. There are outÂ“ts worn by Lady Gaga, Cher, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and shoes from Elton John, Buddy Holly and Gene Simmons of Kiss Â„ if dragon-scale boots count as shoes. Guitars in all shapes, sizes and colors, including ones played by Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Slash, are there, too. When the Hard Rock opened June 28 in what used to be the Trump Taj Mahal, the casino opened in 1990 by Donald Trump, it brought with it a large display of items from what it calls the worldÂs largest collection of music memorabilia. At the front entrance is the cream-colored Rolls that Elvis used to pick up the Beatles from the airport in Los Angeles, surrounded by mannequins wearing the similarly hued collarless suits in which the Beatles used to perform in the early days. Alongside is a vintage Springsteen stage outÂ“t. A glass display case includes autographs from all four Beatles, from Jimi Hendrix and his bandmates, sunglasses and bowties worn by Roy Orbison, and a piece of junk mail delivered to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain (with his last name spelled wrong) advising him he might already be a winner in a publishing sweepstakes. ThereÂs a state of New Jersey accident report involving Springsteen, a purple guitar played by Prince, and John LennonÂs handwritten lyrics to ÂImagineÂŽ on a fading piece of white lined paper. Then thereÂs The Glove, the iconic sparkly hand covering Michael Jackson made famous in his videos and concerts. It was donated to Hard Rock in London by Jackson himself, said Hard RockÂs director of memorabilia. The company obtains its music memorabilia in a variety of ways, including direct donations by artists or purchases at auctions. Sometimes Hard Rock will make a donation to an artistÂs charity in return for a piece of memorabilia, he said. An upstairs room is devoted to New Jersey artists including Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Debbie Harry of Blondie (it includes her handwritten lyrics to ÂDreamingÂŽ scrawled around a poster of herself), as well as Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston and the famous Stone Pony rock club. Still to arrive at the Atlantic City Hard Rock are items including a Hendrix guitar, Frank SinatraÂs piano, and the shoe-shine chair that James Brown used as a 12-year-old.Elvis, Beatles memorabilia on display at Hard RockBy WAYNE PARRYASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOThis July5 photo shows the guitar played by a Bon Jovi guitarist at the Hard Rock casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

ÂSafe Houses: a NovelÂŽ (Knopf), by Dan Fesperman In ÂSafe Houses,ÂŽ author Dan Fesperman superbly melds a character-strong espionage thriller with a suspenseful mystery that also aligns with the #MeToo movement. As a spy thriller, ÂSafe HousesÂŽ eschews high-tech gadgets to concentrate on the emotional and physical peril of undercover work. As a mystery, it quickly becomes a family drama. The novel moves seamlessly between West Berlin in 1979 and a small town in MarylandÂs Eastern Shore during 2014 as it explores the life and death of Helen Abell Shoat. In 1979, Helen Abell is a bright but inexperienced 23-yearold working for the CIA. Like many other women at the CIA during this period, Helen is relegated to a low-level position where she deals with sexism and disrespect. SheÂs taken a menial assignment Â„ maintaining the upkeep of the four Âsafe housesÂŽ scattered around Berlin Â„ and made it a vital job. At one of the houses, Helen makes a life-long enemy of a higher-ranking ofÂ“cer, Kevin Gilley, when she interrupts him assaulting a young German woman, whose body is found a week later. Helen launches a clandestine investigation and soon learns that Kevin has a history of abusing young female agents, secure in the knowledge that male management will protect him. In 2014, Helen Shoat has been living a quiet life on a farm with her husband, Tarrant, when the couple is shot to death in their sleep. The likely suspect is their mentally challenged son, Willard. But the coupleÂs daughter, Anna, who knows nothing about her motherÂs past, doesnÂt believe her brother could commit such a murder. As the details of the two eras are revealed, ÂSafe HousesÂŽ soon has multiple meanings. Fesperman supplies plenty of tense scenes, especially during HelenÂs younger years, but his afÂ“nity for character studies is the novelÂs driving force. KevinÂs violence toward women is coupled with the dangerous power he wields as he moves up in the CIA. While Kevin is a villain, his characterization doesnÂt go over the top. The younger Helen is a fully formed character, intelligent, strong and just learning her limitations. The older Helen is more of a shadow until Anna begins to Â”esh out her motherÂs life. ÂSafe HousesÂŽ is a superior thriller Â„ both on the international and domestic front.Review: ÂSafe HousesÂ is superior thrillerBy OLINE H.

Monday, July 9, 2018 SPORTS www.yoursun.com www.Facebook.com/SuncoastSports Â€ @SunCoastSportsMLB: RaysFirst Rays All-Star revealed: Kevin CashBy MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesRays manager Kevin Cash has been chosen as a coach for the American League team in the July 17 All-Star Game in Washington. Cash was picked by Astros/ AL manager A.J. Hinch, who he has become close with. This is the second straight year Cash has been selected, picked last year by Cleveland manager Terry Francona, for whom he used to work. Hinch made the announcement in Houston today, adding his reasoning, per mlb.comÂs Brian McTaggart: ÂI joked with him, heÂs got a ton of experience handling nine pitchers a game.ÂŽ Player selections will be revealed tonight. The Rays are hoping to have at least two players chosen Â… C Wilson Ramos and LHP Blake Snell.TIMESRays manager Kevin Cash is headed to the All-Star game as a coach for the second straight year. MLB: Rays 9, Mets 0Sharp Eovaldi takes no-hitter into 7th versus Mets By MARC TOPKINTampa Bay TimesNEW YORK Â… Rays righthander Nathan Eovaldi insisted he doesnÂt pay any attention to trade rumors or the number of scouts in the stands. But, as one of the potentially more intriguing starters on the market, he sure put on a show over seven innings Sunday in a 9-0 win over the Mets. Eovaldi retired the first 18 Mets in order then allowed the only hit, a Brandon Nimmo single leading off the seventh, during his spectacular outing. He struck out nine, to go with the one hit and no walks, throwing 59 of his 79 pitches for strikes. Andrew Kittredge worked the final two innings. Eovaldi matched the second longest bid for a perfect game in Rays history. Only Chris Archer, who retired the first 19 in a July 29, 2015, game against Detroit, came closer, by one out. Eovaldi had been similarly dominant earlier this season, and became the first Rays pitcher to twice throw at least six no-hit innings in the same season. In his May 30 season debut at Oakland, having recovered from arthroscopic elbow surgery after completing his rehab from August 2016 Tommy John elbow surgery, Eovaldi threw six no-hit innings and walked one but was taken out of the game after 70 pitches. Two starts ago, on June 26 against the Nationals, Eovaldi retired the first nine and took a no-hitter two outs into the sixth before allowing a double to Bryce Harper. (That was the day after teammate Blake Snell didnÂt allow a hit until the seventh.) Among teams with scouts at SundayÂs game (not all necessarily to watch Eovaldi were the Braves, Brewers, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Giants and Yankees. Also, the Reds and Marlins. The Rays (45-44) gave Eovaldi plenty of support Sunday, starting with a three-run lead before he even took the mound. With Joey Wendle and Jake Bauers on base with AP PHOTORays starter Nathan Eovaldi was on his game Sunday vs. the Mets. SEE RAYS, 3By DAN GELSTONAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Â„ Erik Jones created so much smoke during his burnout that he had trouble breathing afterward. His first career Cup victory Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway was a needed breath of fresh air in a sport that has failed to see a supposed bumper crop of young talent emerge as bona fide stars. The 22-year-old Jones had his motorcoach wrapped in toilet paper as a prank and awoke to a steady string of congratulatory tweets ranging from Kyle Busch to Dale Earnhardt Jr. The feel-good, first-time win gave the sport a vital bump as it capped the official first half of the season. The question lingers: Is this a sign that perhaps the so-called ÂYoung GunsÂŽ are poised to break through over the final 18 races, or was this just an aberration as Jones became the latest benefactor to survive the wild wrecks that litter Daytona? When the smoke finally cleared around JonesÂ No. 20 Toyota, this much was still clear Â„ Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. remained the only three drivers in the rarefied air of legitimate championship contenders. ÂHow many more wins can they get, playoff points can they get?ÂŽ asked Earnhardt, now an NBC broadcaster. ÂWill anybody get in there and join the conversation?ÂŽ Led by five wins each from Busch and Harvick, the trio have combined for 13 wins over the first 18 points races. All three have been the class of the field. All three are former Cup champions. Can any driver stop one from The Big 3 to ultimately claim the crown? Asked if JonesÂ victory was a momentum-builder for the next generation, third-place finisher AJ Allmendinger cracked, ÂOne of those three are going to win next week, so I donÂt know.ÂŽ Jones, who joined Daytona 500 champion Austin Dillon as winners at the track this season who only led the AUTO RACING: NASCARNASCARÂs Cup Series a three-car race? By JAMES ELLINGWORTHAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia Â„ Croatia was there at EnglandÂs lowest ebb this century in international soccer, and itÂll be there as the English team tries to peak. For many England supporters, the 3-2 loss to Croatia in November 2007 was a national embarrassment. Coach Steve McClarenÂs tactics floundered as he clutched an umbrella in pouring rain on the sidelines at Wembley, and he was dubbed Âthe Wally with the brollyÂŽ following the loss that meant England failed to qualify for Euro 2008. A decade later a young, vibrant team has earned England a spot in the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 28 years and it will face Croatia again. The euphoria on the streets of London was matched in Zagreb, where Croats celebrated their countryÂs best World Cup run since 1998.

The Stone Crabs only managed five hits, including two doubles, one by Florida State League all-star Miles Mastrobuoni and the other by left fielder David Olmedo-Barrera. It was Mastrobuoni's extra-base hit that delivered the first Stone Crabs run, plating fellow FSL all-star Lucius Fox in the game's first frame. The Stone Crabs would have a fleetin g one run advantage, adding a run in the 4th inning. David Olmedo-Barrera delivered Charlotte's second run, grounding out, allowing center fielder Jake Fraley to score. The Threshers would answer back, chasing Stone Crabs starter Blake Bivens, with a 3-run fifth inning. Clearwater would continue their offensive juggernaut against Charlotte reliever Hunter Schryver. Charlotte would answer with a run in the 7th inning, a sacrifice fly to center field by Robbie Tenerowicz, scoring Olmedo-Barrera. Clearwater scored 2-runs in the 8th inning off of Stone Crabs reliever Trevor Charpie. Bivens, whose record fell to 5-2, worked 4.2 innings, allowing eight hits and three runs, while walking one and striking out three. MILB: CLEARWATER 8, STONE CRABS 3Threshers thrash Crabs By JOHN RABYAssociated PressWHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. Â„ Kevin Na rode a hot putter to halt a winless streak of nearly seven years on the PGA Tour. Na shot a 6-under-64 for a five-stroke victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on Sunday. The 34-year-old NaÂs only previous tour win came in Las Vegas in October 2011. ÂI wasnÂt sure if it was going to come again. I was hoping it would Â„ sooner than later,ÂŽ Na said. ÂIÂve been close so many times, failed so many times.ÂŽ HeÂs had three dozen top-10 finishes since that last win and showed signs earlier this year that reaching the top again was still well within reach. He tied for second at the Genesis Open in January, two shots behind Bubba Watson. In late May he shot 61 in the first round of the Fort Worth Invitational to match the course record and finished fourth. Starting SundayÂs round one stroke behind co-leaders Harold Varner and Kelly Kraft, Na birdied six of his first 10 holes to open a big lead on the Old White TPC, and he cruised from there. The only blemish on his card was a bogey on the par-4 11th after driving into the rough. Na finished at 19-under 261 and picked up the $1.31 million winnerÂs paycheck. He improved 40 spots to No. 18 in the FedEx Cup standings. Kraft shot 70 and finished second at 14 under. Brandt Snedeker (64) and Jason Kokrak (67) tied for third at 13 under. Na was one shot behind co-leaders Kraft and Harold Varner to begin the day. His birdie stretch included making putts of 24, 33 and 43 feet. ÂMy putter got hot,ÂŽ Na said. ÂThe first day the putter felt awful, and (then) it just clicked. Every time I got over the ball it felt great, and everything felt like it was going in.ÂŽ By the time he strolled up to the 18th green, Na was at ease, relaying his love to his wife and young daughter toward a TV camera. He cried during a television interview after the round as he relayed a message in Korean to his overseas fans. ÂI didnÂt want to leave the Korean fans out,ÂŽ Na said. The only drama down the stretch was who would pick up the last of the tournamentÂs four qualifying spots to the British Open in two weeks. Na had already earned a spot. Varner needed to make a birdie putt on either No. 17 or 18 to get there, but he parred both holes. That gave the final spot to Austin Cook. Kraft, Kokrak and Snedeker were the other qualifiers. The leading four players not already exempt from the top-12 finishers qualified. Kraft said his first British Open bid helped take away some of the sting of losing the lead Sunday.ÂObviously, I would have loved to win after leading coming into today, but, you know, sometimes you run into a guy that makes a lot of putts,ÂŽ Kraft said. No third-round leader has gone on to win the tournament since its debut in 2010. Varner shot 72 and finished tied for fifth at 12 under along with Cook (66), Joaquin Niemann (64), Sam Saunders (70) and Joel Dahmen (69). The 19-year-old Niemann already has four top-10 finishes in eight events this season and has secured special temporary membership on tour. Defending champion Xander Schauffele, who was one shot behind when the round started, bogeyed five of his first six holes. He shot 75 and finished 11 shots back.GOLF: GreenbrierKevin Na wins by 5 shots in West Virginia for 2nd tour winAP PHOTOKevin Na holds the trophy after winning the Military Tribute PGA Tour Golf Tournament at the Greenbrier. By MARTIN FENNELLYTampa Bay TimesFirst, letÂs get the ground rules out of the way. The champions dinner will be held at Perkins. And under no circumstance may a player strike more than one (1) still-rolling putt per 18 holes. And one more thing: IÂll watch. Tiger versus Lefty, $10 million, winner take all, loser rakes the sand traps. ThatÂs the proposal, and despite that it comes about 10 years too late Â„ when Tiger Woods was astride the golf world and Phil Mickelson wasnÂt so bad himself Â„ it still works for me. Put it this way: Their in-the-works Las Vegas showdown, two legends head-to-head, beats the heck out of the John Deere Classic. Hey, you watch Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka. Yes, itÂs fake sports. Yes, itÂs contrived. And, no, it isnÂt their $10 million. Both these men are worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The loser of this wacky event will not have to choose between paying the electric or cable next month. Also: IÂll watch. It says something about golf that for all its talk about next big things and youth, it still will fall back on its reliable, ancient and even fallen stars. ItÂs not alone among sports. But no sport looks more ageless than golf. Why do old guys still make gobs of money playing on the senior tour? IÂd still pay to watch Jack Nicklaus knock it around. Star power matters, which brings us back to Tiger and Lefty. Clearly, Mickelson has more to gain in the matchup, especially after his clown act at this yearÂs U.S. Open, his childish run-andswipe at his runaway putt. Plus, Woods leads in majors (14-5) and wins (79-43). But itÂs not as if Woods wouldnÂt benefit, too. Think he couldnÂt use some positive public relations? Woods and Mickelson have been paired pitifully few times during their careers. Jack and Arnie used to throw down all the time at majors. And this would answer all those what-ifs. We all have them. I know I do. Like, how would Babe Ruth have hit against Sandy Koufax? What about LeBron versus Jordan, one-on-one? Or Secretariat versus Seabiscuit? Try to tell me you wouldnÂt watch a Tiger-Lefty desert duel. WoodsÂ long game against MickelsonÂs short game. Both with galleries to back them up. I still wish Woods and Mickelson were the ones putting up the $10 million. And maybe they should be allowed one stroke a round to knock the other guyÂs putt away from the hole. Maybe not. Too much circus. This will be enough of one as it is. And thereÂs this: IÂll watch. Contact Martin Fennelly at mfennelly@ tampabay.com.

For women, hormonal therapy may be recommended.

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Everyone is different and you may not experience the same results.

Couples of all ages are turning back the clock with an advanced oral formula that ignites passion and performance in both men and women New, four-in-one, nutritional supplement creates Âredwood effectÂ in aging males. Clinically tested, botanical Â“ restarters electrify body and mind, restoring blood Â” ow, creating sexual desire. sexual desire in both men and women. ItÂs called Noxitril. ItÂs not a drug, vitamin or mineral. It is four, exceptionally powerful nutritional supplements squeezed into a single capsule. Have Fun Again Noxitril safely restores sexual enjoyment and performance by reinforcing the four pillars of sexual revitalization: boosting testosterone; elevating natural reserves of nitric oxide, or erection fuel; sparking sexual urges and libidinous desires; and energizing sexual energy and vitality. Ask users if Noxitril works as well as prescription ED drugs, and many may say, ÂNo, it works better!ÂŽ Noxitril formulators have fast-tracked results with the addition of an energizing ginseng blend and a proprietary mix of 13 peak-performance, restarters including muira puma, catauba, and tribulus.The Miracle of Rapid Tumescence Noxitril gives men what they, and their lovers want most Â… rapid tumescence or fast-developing erections. While there are many prescription-sold drugs that boost testosterone in the body, Noxitril contains one of the only natural sources that can consistently elevate this important hormone required for satisfying intimacy.Sexual Urges Return Noxitril scientists have harnessed unique extracts from the tongkat ali tree in Malaysian rainforests. Biochemicals in this libidoboosting botanical have been shown in research to increase testosterone levels. Natural Testosterone Rise Noxitril locks-in instantreadiness by helping elevate and increase natural testosterone production. Regardless of age or physical health, this natural boost in testosterone encourages a powerful sex drive, enhanced sexual function, more sexual energy, and a more pleasurable sexual experience for both sexes.ConÂ“ dent Performance For Noxitril user, David P., this prescription-free formula has been lifechanging.* ÂIt helped get my con dence back to where it used to be,ÂŽ smiles David. ÂNoxitril made me feel ready when the opportunity arises and helped me keep my love life exciting.ÂŽLockedÂƒ and Loaded ÂIÂd recommend this for guys who may have had any kind of trouble in the past and want to ensure theyÂll be ready every time,ÂŽ adds David. ÂItÂs a de nite con dence booster and decreases anxiety, too!ÂŽ But for men over the age of 50, increasing testosterone is, by itself, not enough to fully restore waning sexual powers. Noxitril not only helps increase performance behind closed doors, it can also give men the potential to blow the door o its hinges! e secret? Copious amounts ofÂƒ Âerection fuel.ÂNoxitril Begins with ÂNOÂ For a man to enjoy a healthy, robust erection, he needs ample amounts of a substance called nitric oxide, or ÂNO.Â When NO levels are too low, o en age-related, it becomes physically impossible for a man to achieve an erection. Noxitril contains a fastabsorbing amino acid called L-arginine, which is readily converted to nitric oxide. e more L-arginine a man consumes, the more nitric oxide he possessesÂƒ the more nitric oxide a man has, the larger and harder his response.Eye-Popping Difference Doug. F. is sold on Noxitril. ÂI have tried most of these new, natural male enhancements; none of them do what Noxitril does for me.ÂŽ ÂNot only does it work fast, but I can also last for a while. I have recommended to all my friends who have the same problem.ÂŽ*Works for Women, Too Noxitril is equally e ective for men and women. Like Viagra, arginine in Noxitril helps increase blood ow to the genital area, potentially increasing sensation to the sex organs and enhancing the pleasures of lovemakingÂƒ for both sexes.Feel the Urge Noxitril sparks sexual desire with a prized extract called Maca. In one study a whopping 60 percent of healthy subjects experienced enhanced sexual satisfaction from using this amazing herb. e placebo groupÂs score was just as surprising Â„ zero percent! In another study, test subjects were asked to consume maca, just like that found in Noxitril, exactly one hour before sexual activity. A full two-thirds of male patients unexpectedly experienced increased penile axial rigidity, or harder erections. John M., age 67, says that Noxitril has made his life so easy.

Joe Gibbs Racing thought so highly of his talent that it gave 2004 Cup champ Matt Kenseth the boot to make room for Jones. ÂRegardless of who IÂm replacing or where IÂm driving, you want to win races, and you want to be a winner,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂYou donÂt want to be riding around.ÂŽ It only seems like 35 other drivers have been riding around all season trying to play catch-up to Busch, Harvick and Truex. But the first step toward a title is making the playoffs. With eight races left before the field is set, only eight drivers have clinched the automatic playoff spot earned with a win. Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Dillon, Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almirola, Ryan Blaney, Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman held the final eight spots on Sunday Â„ an order sure to become jumbled after next weekÂs race at Kentucky Speedway. You know, the track where Truex is the defending race winner. So it goes, 18 up, 18 ahead. HereÂs what to watch for in the second half of the NASCAR season: THE BIG 4? Should Busch, Harvick and Truex advance to the championship finale at Homestead Â„ and itÂs certainly no lock all three qualify Â„ who would join them as the fourth driver to race for the title? Bowyer has two wins and has continued to enjoy a career rebirth at Stewart-Haas Racing. SHR has dominated this season with Harvick, Bowyer and Kurt Busch regular contenders and Almirola, in his first season as Danica PatrickÂs replacement in the No. 10 Ford, has proved it was the driver and not the car that was the weak link in the top team in NASCAR. Logano (one win) and Hamlin (winless) have come oh-so-close before to winning the title, and an Elliott championship would link todayÂs fans with the old-school loyalists who loved rooting for his dad, ÂAwesomeÂŽ Bill Elliott.Blame ChevyRemember 2007 when Chevrolets won 26 of 36 races? Yeah, well, neither does Chevy in a shortterm memory sport as itÂs mired in its worst slump since the 1980s. Chevrolet extended its winless streak to 17 races, its longest since a 31-race drought in 1981-82. BowmanÂs pole and DillonÂs win at the Daytona 500 remain the lone highlight of the season. The American manufacturer replaced the maligned Chevrolet SS with the Camaro this year and it hasnÂt mattered. Chevy won 13 consecutive manufacturer championships in the premier Cup Series between 2003 and 2015. But Toyota and Ford have clearly closed the gap. It has to pain the company to see SHR zip into a new stratosphere after it dumped Chevy for Ford in 2017.Hendrick slumpChevyÂs woes are intricately connected to the winless season at Hendrick Motorsports. Sure, growing pains were expected as HMS had to replace retired stars Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon, and former Brickyard 400 champ Kasey Kahne over the last four years. But Elliott, Bowman and rookie William Byron are all not only winless this season Â„ theyÂre 0 for their careers. Not even Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion, has steadied the ship. HeÂs stuck in the longest losing streak of his career (39 races) and has just two topfives this season. LoweÂs, one of the last remaining corporate giants in NASCAR, announced it was cutting ties with Johnson at the end of the season, and that guarantees a new sponsor on the hood of the No. 48 Chevy in 2019. Johnson needs checkered flags and checks Â„ pretty heady stuff for any driver, no matter the resume. ÂThatÂs a story line in itself is how and when theyÂll return to their past performance and glory,ÂŽ Earnhardt said.Young gunsWhen an ISC executive pinned part of the blame on NASCARÂs woes Â„ TV ratings and attendance are still in the tank Â„ on the failure of young talent to become stars, the under-25 crew fired back and said enough was enough with the criticism. JonesÂ win was a step in silencing the doubters. But the point standsÂ„ for NASCAR to try and grow its fan base, itÂs time for Elliott, Blaney, Daniel Suarez and Darrell Wallace Jr. to get it together and make their marks on the track instead of social media.us,ÂŽ said Croatia defender Dejan Lovren, who has played in England since 2013. ÂWeÂre two great teams and it will be a great challenge for us and for them, so letÂs see who will be better.ÂŽ Lovren is the only player in CroatiaÂs World Cup squiad who is currently with an English club, although his teammates Luka Modric and Vedran Corluka both previously played for Tottenham, and forward Andrej Kramaric was formerly at Leicester City. England beat Croatia 4-1 and 5-1 in their last two meetings, World Cup qualifiers in 2008 and 2009, but the abiding memory for England fans remains that defeat in 2007. Davor Suker, a star of the Croatian team that reached the 1998 World Cup semifinals and president of the national football federation, tried to play down the grudge factor ahead of WednesdayÂs semifinal match in Moscow. ÂNot revenge, itÂs football,ÂŽ he said, adding that he wished Croatia was facing a weaker England team. ÂWhat I would like, England from before, but now England is very strong. We will respect this team.ÂŽ England won the 1966 World Cup but hasnÂt returned to the final of the sportÂs marquee event. In the semifinals in 1990, West Germany advanced on penalties over England. Suker said England coach Gareth Southgate has built a team of ÂhungryÂŽ players motivated to win for their country and not distracted by the trappings of fame. ÂYou know, the coach, what he has, football comes home,ÂŽ Suker said, referencing EnglandÂs ÂThree LionsÂŽ song. ÂItÂs the hungry players, you see,ÂŽ Suker said, explaining that cash and fast cars canÂt compare for players with competing for the biggest title. ÂJust 11 against 11 warriors and thatÂs playing in the World Cup.ÂŽone out, C.J. Cron, who was a late add to the lineup as the result of Kevin KiemaierÂs back tightness, crushing a ball into 439 feet to left and into the second deck for his career high 17th homer of the season, and his first since June 19. They added on from there. They got two in the third on hits by Bauers, Daniel Robertson and Mallex Smith (who would leave later with leg cramps). Another in the fifth on two walks and an infield single by Eovaldi. Then solo homers by Bauers (in the sixth) and Wendle (eighth). The Rays headed back to Tampa after SundayÂs game, waiting for news on who will join manager Kevin Cash, who was appointed a coach, on the American League All-Star team, and to open a quick threegame homestand against Detroit.

The slugger, who is eligible for free agency after this season, is batting just .218 for the disappointing Nationals, but he has 21 homers and 50 RBIs.
