Citrus counts in July havent changed that one bit. The latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed no change for orange production, which was already 34.7 percent lower than the prior growing season. Grapefruit production fell 1.8 percent from May to June, and has held steady since then. Its half of the production from the prior growing season and the lowest level in nearly a century. The all-orange forecast is still 45 million boxes, according to CitrusIndustry.net: Divided between 19 million boxes of non-Valencia oranges „ early, midseason, and Navel varieties „ and 26 million boxes of Valencia oranges. Florida grapefruit production is unchanged since June at 3.88 million boxes. Of those, 700,000 boxes are white grapefruit and 3.18 million boxes are red. The Florida tangerine and tangelo forecast remains at 750,000 boxes. For the national industry, the Texas orange forecast dropped from 2.11 million Citrus industry: Final forecast is no betterBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ In 2015, Crockett and Monica Turner snagged a gold mine for alligator hunters: A 11.5-footer that was more than 500 pounds. Everybody on the boat was shaking with buck fever,Ž Monica Turner said. It was a “asco and a chase. I didnt stop shaking for two hours.Ž Wearing the animal down took two hours on the Kissimmee River in 32-foot-deep water, in the one spot their Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission alligator hunt permits allowed. They sold the animal to a processor, which just about paid for the FWC permits. He gave them the skull to mount. That night, they also got a freezer full of meatŽ from some 7to 9-foot alligators „ with better meat than the bigger, tougher animals, Crockett Turner said.We used every bit of the gator,Ž Monica Turner said. Without that, the hunt wouldve cost too much. The Turners live on 43 acres on State Road 66 with their four children, ages 16, 14, 12 and 10. Theyve “shed fresh and Family says FWC alligator hunt difficult, expensiveBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERSEBRING„Although Betty Ford-Smith is a Sebring resident, women in France follow her life story on a French quilting blog. The demand for her pine cone quilting technique grew, and internationally recognized blog writer, Katell Renon, invited Ford-Smith to France to teach quilting workshops. Renon has written 20-25 blog articles about Ford-Smith since 2014. Ford-Smith learned the popular pine cone quilting technique from Arlene Dennis, who was affectionately known as Miss Sue.Ž She was an adept learner and soon began making quilts that won local awards, including a Peoples Choice award at the Lake Placid Arts and Crafts Country Fair and third place at the 35th Annual Capital City Quilt Show in 2017, which was held in Tallahassee. She has even been invited to exhibit at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky next year. When Ford-Smith emailed the Nifty Quilt blog to talk about her pine cone quilting, the blog writer was impressed with her craft and asked if she could share her work with Renon, who has had over two million visits to her blog. Ford-Smith agreed, and on Nov. 14, 2014, she met Renon online. The two struck up a friendship based on the shared love of quilting. When Renon did not write about the Sebring resident for a period of time, her followers would ask, What happened to Betty?Ž Ford-Smith traveled to France a couple days ahead of her scheduled quilting workshops so that she could see the Louvre Museum, the Eiffel Tower and Pablo Picassos art gallery. Her trip started off a little rocky, because all of her luggage was lost and she and her husband had to buy all new clothes. However, this gave her an opportunity to shop in Paris. After her sightseeing tour and shopping spree with her husband, Smitty, she went to Renons house in Toulouse, France, where she stayed for the remainder of the trip. Katell took care of every meal,Ž FordSmith said. We had our own wing of the house where we stayed for eight days.Ž Renon set up two quilting workshops and two show-and-tell events for the women in France to learn from FordSmith. The “rst workshop was held on June 15 in Bezac. It lasted from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. The second quilting workshop was in Les Salvages on June 19, the day before she left.

Casey Foundation. The Kids Count report contains the most recent national, state and local data on hundreds of indicators of child well-being. The annual Data Book uses 16 indicators to rank each state across four domains „ health, education, economic well-being and family and community „ as an assessment of child well-being. Florida earned an overall ranking of 34 in child well-being. Our rankings in each of the four domains of economic well-being, education, health, and family and community are slowly moving in the right direction,Ž said Florida Kids Count Director Norn Dollard. Following statewide expansions of health insurance programs, more kids than ever have access to the health care they need to thrive,Ž he said. But, further investments are needed to reach the Florida children who lack coverage.Ž The Sunshine State ranked 34th in Family and Community with improvements in two of the four indicators in this domain.

The boy was going southbound on the western shoulder of U.S. 27, just south of the north entrance to Lake Henry Drive, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The accident happened at 2 p.m. According to a witness, a large white Ford F350 style pick-up truck, towing a gooseneck trailer, was seen southbound on U.S. 27 in the right lane, FHP said. The trailer had a green tractor with a “eld disc plow on it, which was hanging over the right side of the trailer. The disc of the plow collided with the boys hand, which caused him to be knocked off his bicycle. The boy received serious injury to his hand, authorities added.

The fun-“lled day included a tug-of-war contest between the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce and the children, and the children won. Children danced to hip hop, soul, reggae and classics from Michael Jackson, courtesy of Triple MMM DJZZ. Free hot dogs and barbecue, which was donated by Sweet Boys Barbecue, fueled the stomachs and provided plenty of energy for children to participate in a kickball and basketball tournament. The water slide helped cool off the children on the hot, summer day. At 3 p.m. adults lined up to receive backpacks and free school supplies while children danced to the music of DJ Marty Marr. William Phillips, a local student who attended the event and was waiting to receive a backpack, liked the kickball tournament the best.Ž Ada McGowan, president of Citizens with Voices, organized the event. McGowan thanked everyone who donated to make the event possible, including Willis McGuire, who paid for the bounce house and water slide. She encouraged everyone to sign up with Penny Ogg, Supervisor of Elections, and vote. Ogg had a booth and was signing up people to vote before the July 30 deadline. McGowan said:Your voice matters. If you are 18 years of age or older, go sign up to vote. If you dont sign up, shut up.ŽChildren have a blast at back-to-school bashBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITER MELISSA MAIN/STAFFBack to School Summer Bash 2018 was a hit with the children.

SEBRING „ People who want to know where their taxes go and to hear if Highlands County commissioners will have to raise them should plan to attend upcoming meetings. The Highlands County Board of Count Commission had a morning brie“ng Thursday from staff on departmental budgets and the capital “nancial strategy „ the plan for buying needed equipment and infrastructure over a “veto 10-year period. County Administrator, Randy Vosburg, and David Nitz, manager of the Of“ce of Budget and Management (OMB), have already suggested to commissioners that increases in spending would require another 0.7 mils of property tax, raising the 8.55 rate to 9.25 to bring in $3.3 million more to cover proposed changes. Even then, they need to “nd places to cut the budget to balance it out. Vosburg and county commissioners want to hear from people. Any citizen may attend any or all of the three presentations, which will include a PowerPoint presentation of the budget and time for questions and answers. Events will be: € 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 17 in the University Center Auditorium at South Florida State College, coinciding with Commissioner Don Elwells Town Hall Meeting.Ž Pizza and soft drinks to be served at 5:30 p.m. € 6 p.m. July 19 in the county commission board room in the Government Center on South Commerce Avenue in Sebring. € 6 p.m. July 24 at Lake Placid Town Hall.

Monday, July 16, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3 www.highlandsnewssun.com boxes in June to 1.88 million boxes in July. Texas grapefruit also fell from 5.7 million boxes in June to 4.8 million boxes in July. Californias tangerine/ tangelo forecast changed from 21 million boxes in June to 20 million boxes in July. In the spring of 2017, the industry produced enough oranges, grapefruit and other fruits to “ll a combined 78.23 million boxes, 16.7 percent less than in 2015-2016. This brings a very dif“cult citrus season to a close,Ž said Shannon Shepp, executive director of the Florida Department of Citrus. We look forward to a quiet, resilient season in the fall.Ž Whether that will happen is another matter. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center (CPC), in collaboration with hurricane experts from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Hurricane Research Division (HRD), have indicated a 75 percent chance of seeing a near-normal or above-normal hurricane season for 2019. Thats split between a 35 percent chance of an above-normal season and a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, with a 25 percent chance of a below-normal season this year. Forecasters also predict a 70-percent chance of seeing 10 to 16 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including oourne to major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam has called the 2017 season horrible,Ž thanks to devastation from Hurricane Irma and continued battles with citrus greening disease. Its important to remember that the industry is still recovering from Hurricane Irmas unprecedented damage last year,Ž Putnam said in a statement last month. Floridas agricultural damages are estimated at $2.5 billion total „ $761 million to citrus alone. State lawmakers later revised the citrus estimate to more than $1 billion. Last week, local citrus growers learned details of how to apply for a federal disaster-relief package approved by Congress in February, part of a $2.36 billion package targeted for agricultural businesses impacted by hurricanes and wild“res, along with a $340 million black grant program to help citrus growers rebuild. While expected to bridge many years of recovery as growers replace trees and see them mature, aid has not yet started as growers must pass an application process. News Service Florida reported last month that the industry has also seen its economic in”uence wane. Reports cited a University of Florida study released last year that said the industrys direct and indirect economic impact of $8.6 billion was 31 percent less than the preceding four years. The industry continues to await federal help to recover from Irma while threats of retaliatory trade tariffs from the European Union threaten the 12 million gallons of orange juice exported each year.CITRUSFROM PAGE 1 cone quilting technique. Many people tried to speak to me in English,Ž she said. However, one lady that she met told her, You dont have to speak English or French. We all speak patchwork [quilting].Ž In France, the quilters are so conservation minded that they bring their own quilted place mats, china and silverware, in addition to their food, when they have a quilting workshop that lasts all day,Ž Ford-Smith said. Many of the French women who attended the workshops and show-and-tell events had followed Ford-Smiths life story since 2014.I felt overwhelmed by the love these people expressed for me. It brought tears to my eyes. They even gave me gifts.Ž Ford-Smith participated in one show-and-tell in Penne on June 14 and another one at Renons house on June 18. Fifteen women from Renons Bee Hive quilt group gathered to eat and quilt together. All the women brought food, and the Sebring couple enjoyed the French cuisine, which always seemed to include cheese and wine. Patchwork quilting is a popular hobby in France. Diane de Obaldia opened the “rst patchwork quilt store in Paris. Ford-Smith met women who worked in her store and later became famous in the quilting community. By the 1990s, patchwork started taking off in France,Ž she said. Women in France are excited to learn new quilting techniques, she explained. The French like hand work, and they are really thrilled with this pine cone quilting, which is a hand quilting technique.Ž To learn more about Ford-Smiths pine cone quilting technique, visit her website at www. pineconequilts.com.QUILTSFROM PAGE 1 saltwater and have hunted deer, hog and alligator, as a couple and as a family. The cost of state permits and gasoline to and from the designated hunting site now outweighs any bene“t from the meat, they said. Since 1988, FWC has invited hunters to an annual statewide recreational alligator harvestŽ „ night hunts in the summer. People pay an application fee, ask for hunting sites and times, and get assigned by a lottery. The FWC Alligator hunting guide states that it helps FWC manage alligator population, now estimated at 1.3 million. If you dont regulate gators, theyll take over,Ž Crockett Turner said. Worse than alligators are pythons, he said. The FWC has tried to hire people to hunt them. They are also expensive „ more than $200 in gas to run a boat all day „ and like alligators, seem to know theyre safe in state parks. Alligators know when a hunt starts, from unusual boat activity, and go where theyre safe, he said, such as the off-limits spots in and south of Avon Park Air Force Range. On the river there, Crockett Turner has seen 30 or more 12-foot alligators to a sandbar, stacked like logs.Ž In 2015, the Turners and three friends hunted Pod E,Ž a three-mile stretch of Kissimmee River straddled by State Road 70. They used a 25-footlong, 8-foot-wide ”at boat with a 200-hp Johnson outboard motor. Banks were steep, with no place to pull in, Crockett Turner said, with 32-foot deep water. He said they used a weighted treble hook with a heavy-duty “shing rod to snag the animal. The FWC allows bows, crossbows, gigs, harpoons, spears or spear guns, attached to a restraining line and capable of penetrating the hide. Other allowed methods are a “shing pole with a weighted treble hook or arti“cial lure; meat-baited less than two inch wooden pegs on a “shing pole or hand-held line; or hand-held snatch hooks, catch poles or snares. Bang sticks are allowed. The metal pole has a pressure trigger on the end. It shoots a .45-caliber bullet into the animals brain when the end makes contact. Bang sticks may only be used once the animal is on a restraining line. With a treble hook, Crockett Turner said, the hunter has to snag an alligator on a part of its body „ a leg or torso, maybe between ribs.If I had him in the mouth, I could control him,Ž Crockett Turner said. Monica Turner said a hunter can spot eyes in the distance, but once they dive, theyre gone. You cant harpoon them, and wont swallow a peg. She and her husband think the peg is useless.Its de“nitely not the most ef“cient way,Ž Monica Turner said. When asked if hed “gured how much he paid per pound in gas, time and effort for alligator meat in the last big hunt, Crockett Turner said, Theres some things you dont want wanna know.Ž He said, hed rather catch a stinking wild hogŽ than an alligator. Its easier to clean, Monica Turner said. Plus, wild hogs are more of a nuisance. Two years ago, FWC started issuing countywide hunting/trapping licenses. Residents can hunt any body of water thats not part of the annual hunt. Thats “ne with Crockett Turner. Last year on private land, they caught two 10-foot alligators. It was better than rivers or Lake Istokpoga, he said: Alligators are not on their guard. They “gure theyll stick with the countywide license and give up on the annual hunt. Weve done it for three years,Ž Monica Turner said. Were a family. Weve got bills and priorities. We cant donate money to FWC. You dont get your moneys worth.ŽGATORFROM PAGE 1 CONGRATULATIONSTO OUR TEAM for putting patients & safetyFIRSTThanks to you, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Sebring and Lake Placid earned the nations top distinction for patient safety with an AŽ grade from the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to editor@newssun.com.The Florida Constitution should only be amended in important cases in which the Legislature is incapable or unwilling to act. Florida provides several methods for placing constitutional amendment proposals on the ballot. One involves citizen initiativ es. Another involves the Constitution Revision Commission, which meets every 20 years. Two previous commissions had mixed success. In 1978 voters rejected all eight ballot proposals of the commission. In 1998 voters approved eight of nine proposals. But this third commission proved to be just as dysfunctional as the Legislature. It has eight proposals for the voters; six of the eight involve multiple issues. Thats right, voters in November will see several examples in which two to four proposals are lumped together in one vote. This ought to be unconstitutional. Sadly, we may need an amendment to force future commissions to limit proposals to one issue at a time. And its an outrage that some of the ballot language is misleading and vague. Lets take proposal 6003: € Voters will see this title: Amendment 8: School board term limits and duties; public schools.Ž That sounds innocent enough; sure, as innocent as a wolf in sheeps clothing. The “rst issue would create eight-year term limits for school boards. Voters generally approve of term limits, but this ought to be a home rule issue for individual counties. Some sparsely populated rural counties may prefer no term limits or longer limits. € The second issue involves misleading ballot language that allows the state to operate and control charter schools, not the local school board. But its not stated that way. € The third issue would require promotion of civic literacy. This is not even needed. The Legislature already has a requirement for civil literacy education and its fully willing and able to amend it. But this appears to be a device to sneak through the charter school amendment. Some have called for voting down all of the multiple issue amendments. That certainly would be better than voting for all of them. However, there is one group of amendments that is not controversial and deserves passage. It would remove an outdated alien land law provision from the constitution, remove high speed rail language from the constitution and clarify applicability of a repealed criminal statute. Voters wont be taking up the amendments till the November general election. But along with the eight proposals (20 issues in all), there are “ve other constitutional matters on the ballot for a total of 13. That means long lines on Election Day will be long as voters try to sort out this mess. We recommend voters consider early voting or requesting write-in ballots so they can take their time. One matter that deserved to be on the ballot involved a Constitutional Amendment that passed in 1998 with 64 percent of the vote. If the winner of a primary has no opposition in the general election, then all quali“ed voters, regardless of party, can vote in the primary. The primary in effect is the general election. But Republicans and Democrats gamed the system by encouraging write-in candidates to “le, which the Florida Supreme Court decided meant that the primary was closed, leaving the general election to a race between a strong candidate and a token write-in. Never mind no write-in candidate has ever won an election in Florida, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Democrats in South Florida and Republicans in North Florida like having elections all to themselves. Yet the numbers of NPA voters (No Party Af“liation) are growing. In some counties, NPA voters represent the second-largest political group. This proposal was shockingly voted down by the Constitution Revision Commission, probably because many of the members owed their allegiance to political appointments. Ten of those who voted against it were appointed by the governor and “ve the speaker of the House, said local attorney Hank Coxe, a member of the commission. This means that there should be a citizens initiative to close the write-in loophole. A poll conducted by the Florida Chamber of Commerce showed that just four of the 13 constitutional proposals have the 60 percent support needed to pass. The stealth charter school item with a ballot title focusing in term limits, unfortunately, is one of them. An editorial from the Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville.Confusing amendmentsIve been in Tucson, Arizona taking care of my ailing older sister this past month. Tucson is an interesting place. Im staying at my brothers house, which is a little casita right next to the railroad tracks on the edge of a national historic register neighborhood undergoing rapid gentri“cation. Across the street is a city park where local leagues like to play baseball. Wait, you, the reader, are saying. You said you were going to address Florida Amendments 1, 2, and 5 in your next column. I am. Ill start with Amendment 5. There was a fascinating article by Jeff Stein in the Washington Post a few days ago about the political strategy behind Amendments 5, which, surprise, was not an original idea of Rick Scott and his March in Line majority in the Florida House and Senate. Amendment 5 would require a supermajority voteƒto impose, authorize, or raise state taxes or fees.Ž The gist of the WaPo piece is this is a last-ditch attempt by shrinking legislative majorities in Florida, Oregon, and North Carolina to hamstring state budgets and economic policymaking if voters get fed up with them and throw them out. The idea sprung from the Koch brother (they are down to one over at Koch Industries) and his thinktanks and dark money PACs. Koch tries to spin he is a libertarian … but his is run-of-mill billionaire babble. You know, billionaires who think free markets should only work for them and you should thank them for buying off federal and state legislatures to cut their taxes to the bone. Heres to you, Cary Pigman. Isnt it amazing what a $1,000 annual donation can buy? Couple of bottles of wine, at least. Representative Pigman has an excuse for having voted for Amendment 5; he was paid for his vote. So, what is the excuse of Senator Denise Grimsley (running for Secretary of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs); Senator Greg Steube and Representative Julio Gonzalez (running against each other in the Republican primary for Tom Rooneys Congressional seat); Representative Ben Albritton (running for Denise Grimsleys Senate District 26 seat)? We know they all know (as does Rick Scott) that this is a political stunt that could economically and politically kneecap the state. What happens if Amendment 5 passes? For Highlands County, House District 55, Senate District 26, and Congressional District 17, it means more rice bowl “ghts to get the paltry state subsidy from the General Revenue Fund that Highlands, Hardee, Glades, DeSoto, and Okeechobee currently receive. The Heartland is currently dependent upon the general revenue fund subsidy because we dont generate enough property and local sales taxes to pay for our basic needs. The state subsidy supports our local and county governments basic functions from “re stations to roads to police to clean water and sewers to the public-sector jobs that keep the rural economy going. Additionally, our rural economy is dependent upon agriculture, ranching and dairy farming, all of which are subject to the commodity markets and natural disasters, as well as human-induced ones like the tariff war the President has recently begun. If the tariffs negatively impact those sectors, our tax base will further erode making the subsidy even more critical. The state budget also directly pays into our schools and public health budgets; it pays for emergency relief from the hurricanes and other natural disasters that regularly impact the state. The highway patrol and other public services, our judicial and legal systemsƒthe list goes on and on. Florida is on a race to the bottom of nearly every economic indicator in the country. We need ideas and incentives to keep our young people from moving to greener pastures. Sure, we can keep drawing in all of us old people, but the future is with the young. That means the Governor and legislature must be dynamic and not subject to gridlock which is what Amendment 5 will usher in. Vote for responsibility. Vote No on Amendment 5. Next up. Amendments 1 and 2. Polly Parks is a resident of Sebring. Formerly, she was a Washington representative for a multinational metal recycling “rm handling policy issues and federal contracting.

We live in the same Sun N Lakes South community where Jack once served as president. He was instrumental, along with several others, in establishing the areas volunteer “re district with its resulting, fully operational “re station located on South Sun N Lakes Boulevard. He subsequently served as president of the Lake Placid Volunteer Fire District and the now disbanded Highlands County Homeowners Association. Always community minded, Jack has been a member of many Highlands County boards and committees including, but not limited to, the Fire Service Task Force, Lakes Association & Affordable Housing Advisory. With this varied background, it is easy to see why Jack has proven to be such an effective commissioner. These past experiences have increased his “rst hand knowledge in many diverse and problematic areas. He is responsive to the people and carefully considers all aspects of the issues at hand. We “rmly believe that all who vote for Jack will not be disappointed.Marianne Reason Lake Placid Father, please forgive me Flashback to December 1966. Upon returning home from Vietnam, we landed in the beautiful city on the bay, San Francisco. Our welcoming home party was so gracious and elated to see us that they couldnt even control their saliva as it landed on our faces and uniforms. Plus, they must have all worked at a “reworks factory that had some type of malfunction because they were all waving at us with only one “nger and calling us baby killers. I told my buddy that they must have us confused with another group because we were “ghting Communists, not babies. Yes, that is truly a homecoming that will be ingrained in my memory forever. Fast forward to todays world. I guess that we have graduated to another level. Now, the most gracious, impeccable and honorable people in our esteemed Congress are now referring to the citizenry that have jobs and make this country work as smelly, bitter clingers to our guns and Bibles, irredeemable deplorables and rednecks. Father, please forgive me as I hath runneth out of the other cheek to turneth!Dave Doty Lake Placid

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 16, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Last week ended with life in the 30s. This week is Life in the FortiesŽ an excerpt from the Sebring Historical Society publication written by Arthur BuckŽ McIntyre follows. My parents came to this area during the early days of Sebring. My mom (1910-11) and my dad about 1916. They purchased property on what is now Sparta Road and my dad moved a house onto our property. The road leading to our property was merely a trail„actually a three rut trail. Two ruts for the wagon wheels and the third for the horse or mule pulling the wagon.Ž Our neighbor had a Model T truck. There were few automobiles in the area at the time. We used to help him by cutting palmetto fans and placing them in the road so the truck wouldnt get stuck. The sand was very bad.Ž In the mid-1940s, daddy bought an old 1930 black Cadillac Hearse with beautiful burgundy carpeting with burgundy curtains. My dad planned to cut the top off to make a truck. Well, before he got to do that we decided wed go for a ride. My sisters did not like riding in the hearse. I thought it was great! It even had little rollers on the ”oor where the casket was rolled in. There were no seats, we had to sit on the carpet.Ž I remember the day WWII ended. Ellen Joyce worked at Muffs Bakery. When we went to pick her up, Mr. Muff was closing the bakery to celebrate the end of the war. He was giving away all his fresh baked bread, pies, and pastries. You wouldnt believe all the bakery goods we had piled in the back of the hearse when we headed back home. My sisters were embarrassed and laid down in the back so no one could see them. That was the only time I ate all the peach pie I wanted and there was still some left. Mr. Titus, a dairyman asked me if I would take and raise a calf and he would buy it back when it grew up. The calf I raised, grew up and reached the age to breed and had a calf. Mr. Titus paid me $275. Another dairyman, Ruben Ramer,, wanted me to raise a calf, so I got the calf and did the same thing all over again and was paid another $275. I took the money right down to the Tropical Bank located on the Circle in Sebring. That was the “rst account I had ever had.Ž At this time Chester Arthur Skipper lived south of town and owned a lot of land. He came by the house and offered to sell 640 acres at 25 cents an acre ($160). So I thought that was a good idea, but a person as young as I was couldnt own property in the state of Florida unless signed for by a guardian. I was advised not to buy the land because it was on a sand hill. You couldnt grow grass so it wasnt any good for farming. And there was a lake in the middle. I was advised that it was a horrible deal. Today, the lake is Huckleberry Lake and on the west side of it is Lake Haven Estates and on the east side is Camp Sparta. That was a good deal missed! A Sebring Historical Society publication, April 2002. Elaine Levey can be reached at emlevey@ gmail.com.Life in the 40s Elaine LeveyHISTORICALLY SPEAKING concentrated poverty was unchanged over the “veyear window. To address these issues, continued emphasis is needed to expand educational and vocational supports for Floridas parents so families can thrive, the report said. Healthy Start Coalition of Hardee, Highlands and Polk Counties Executive Director Charlene Edwards, who is also a member of the School Board of Highlands County, offered some comments on the data. The state and local communities have made the reduction of teen pregnancy a priority and we see this in Highlands County as well,Ž she said. However, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are on the rise among this age group. We must continue to work with our teens to make Healthy Choices in their lives.Ž According to the Kids Count report, troubling disparities persist among children of color and those from low-income and immigrant families. Children of color, low-income children and children from immigrant families stand to suffer the most if vital programs face reductions in funding, the report said. Edwards said, I agree strongly with the statements on disparities among children of color. Disparities are an issue among pregnant black women as well. They have more preterm births and low birth weight babies at a 2, sometimes 3 to 1 ratio than white pregnant women. Thus, the disparity begins at birth.Ž Florida ranked 34th in health, lagging behind the national average in three of the four indicators. More investments in programs are needed to reduce the number of low birth-weight babies, child and teen deaths and teens who abuse alcohol or drugs, the report concluded. In economic well-being, Florida ranked 42nd with the report noting for the “rst time in several years, there have been some signi“cant inroads into reducing child poverty and improvements in parents ability to get full employment. However, many families struggle to make ends meet and 39 percent of children live in households that spend roughly a third or more of their monthly incomes on housing, which reduces discretionary spending on children and the amount of time available to parents to spend with their children, the report added. The Sunshine State ranked 24th in education with preschool enrollment above the national average and notable gains in third-grade reading, an important predictor of academic success.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, July 16, 2018 SEBRING „ With Florida facing an opioid epidemic, the Florida Legislature has enacted stiff new requirements for physicians prescribing pain medication. According to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, the opioid epidemic is killing 15 Floridians a day. In 2010, 98 out of the top 100 opioid-prescribing doctors were in Florida, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Agency. To combat the epidemic, Gov. Rick Scott signed H.B. 21 into law on March 19, and the law became effective July 1. In 2009, the Florida legislature created the prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP), which requires doctors to report information about controlled substances they prescribe to a database called E-FORCSE, Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substances Evaluation Program, according to Flmedical.org. In the past, doctors used this program when they suspected a patient to be shopping around and getting controlled substances from more than one doctor, explained Dr. Donald Geldart. Now the monitoring is mandatory for everyone.Ž It take 5-15 minutes to go through the online New law toughens pain medicine prescriptionBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERSometimes a word annoys me, such as ”avonoid and all the related words like it including bio”avonoid, bio”avones, ”avonol, polyphenol, phytonutrient and, oh my gosh, you can see how confusing it is to say all those and they all basically mean the same thing: Antioxidant from a plant! One amazing antioxidant, or ”avonoid, or whatever youd like to call it is kaempferol, pronounced camp-fur-all.Ž This is what youre eating when you bite into raspberries, apples, grapes or tomatoes. Its also found in spinach, potatoes, onions, kale, endive, lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cucumbers, lettuce, green beans, peaches, blackberries, cranberries and green tea. One food with a lot of kaempferol is capers! By now, youre wondering why Im talking about kaempferol. Im tired of everyone talking about carbs, proteins and fats. None of us want to count calories or evaluate ratios of carbs, proteins and fats! Its much easier to just eat food that is bright and colorful and full of life-giving nutrients such as kaempferol. My vote is to stop counting carbs, just eat kaempferol. Its a very promising and innocuous strategy to help with many disorders youre suffering with: Colon cancer. There was a study in 2014 that proved some bene“ts from kaempferol in human colon cancer cells. Food poisoning. This is gross but lets face it, 50 million people worldwide get infected with Entamoeba histolytica. Transmission is pretty easy, it occurs by eating or drinking food or beverages contaminated with the organism, which comes from feces. Kaempferol (and quercetin) was shown to destroy the parasite. Heart disease. A study found that women who have high intakes of kaempferol might be less likely to die of a heart attack. It works in part by preventing the oxidation, as in rustingŽ of low-density lipoproteins. Breast cancer. Breast cancer spreads with the assistance of some compounds in your own body called Matrix metalloproteinases, which we call MMPs for short. Kaempferol slows down cancer cell invasion into other cells (metastasis) by blocking MMPs, speci“cally MMP-9 expression. So eating foods rich in kaempferol would be a natural consideration for breast health. Prostate cancer. In Biomedical Reports 2015, we saw that kaempferol could block prostate cell growth to some degree. Kaempferol has many chemopreventative characateristics, both in vivo and in vitro. Epidemiological studies suggest the more kaempferol you consume, the lower your risk of developing cancer. Alzheimers disease.Stop counting carbs, eat kaempferolPlenty of natural light and luxurious amenities can contribute to a relaxing spa experience at home. Relaxing at a spa each week may be a luxury reserved for celebrities and socialites. For many people, a day spa is a treat enjoyed on special occasions or while on vacation. However, home bathrooms can be designed to provide the same types of amenities offered at day spas right in the comfort of ones home. The American Psychological Association says that money, work and the future of the country are particularly strong stressors today. Eighty percent of workers feel stress on the job and learning how to manage stress is a top concern, according to the American Institute of Stress. Creating a Zen-like retreat at home can help alleviate stress and improve health. Homeowners whose renovation plans include turning a bathroom into a spa oasis will need to choose which features they desire most. These suggestions can spur on more ideas to create the ideal retreat. €Soaker bathtub: Theres something to be said about a luxurious soak in a tub. Tubs come in different sizes and shapes, like the highly recognizable clawfoot tub and other freestanding units. These types of tubs, as well as corner tubs, can offer deep-seated luxury by way of a relaxing and restorative soak. Pair with scented bath bombs or salts for a true spa experience. €Steam shower: Steam showers are self-enclosed units that feature generators that deliver steam through steam heads. The steam “lls the space and can help a person unwind before a refreshing shower or bath. According to the retailer Modern Bathroom, modern steam showers come with digital controls, which makes it easy for users to activate the shower, adjust the length of time that the shower will operate and adjust temperature controls. Extra features like music, mood lighting and aromatherapy can be included as well. €Heated ”oors: Heated ”oors provide the utmost in comfort when stepping out of the bath or shower. They can warm the room and make using the space more comfortable in cold weather. €Vessel sinks: A vessel sink typically features a bowl or basin that looks like it was placed on top of the vanity. Vessel sinks can elevate the ambiance in spa bathrooms. €Plush towels and robes: In addition to “xtures and other functional components of the bath, linens are key. Soft-spun Egyptian or Turkish cotton towels and robes are a must-have luxury for the full spa experience. €Comfortable seat: A bench or chair nestled by a bathroom window is the perfect spot for pedicures or catching up on some light reading. €Natural light: Skylights or privacy-ensuring windows are a must to create a relaxing space close to nature. A spa bathroom at home is within reach. With a few touches, any bathroom can be transformed into a luxurious oasis.DIY spa bathroomMETRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONSHow to give home bathrooms a spa-like feel Dear PharmacistSUZY COHEN COURTESY PHOTO/ MCCPlenty of natural light and luxurious amenities can contribute to a relaxing spa experience at home.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 16, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com What is that sound? I am sure we have all heard it and wondered where it was coming from. You are in your car, stopped at the red light and you hear this banging noise. The racket. You look around and theres a car within eyesight literally shaking and bouncing. Boom! Boom! Boom! The young people inside are jamming to their music. You think ... what in the world! How are they even sitting in there? I think ... future patient.Ž Really! Those kids are rapidly damaging their hearing. They wont know it for a few years, but they are. If you see a young person in such a situation, kindly let them know they may be damaging their ears. They may not know. I was in our of“ce car the other day and this car pulled up beside me at the light and I made eye contact with the young man who was driving. We both smiled. Then I rolled my window down. He said, Your cars cool.Ž I said thanks and asked, Who are you listening to?Ž He told me, Jay Rock.Ž I told him it was really loud and asked him if his ears ever had ringing noises in them when he got out of the car. He said, yeah, sometimes ... why?Ž I gently said, Its a sign that you have done some damage to your hearing.Ž Remarkably he said, Well, I can run it a little softer.Ž I smiled, nodded back at him and moved on when the light changed. It is estimated that youth between the ages of 12-19 years of age have noise-induced hearing loss. Approximately 17 percent have permanent hearing loss from listening to loud music either through headphones or from inside of vehicles. Most do not even know that they have caused damage to their hearing. Hearing loss is showing up earlier, too. More kids are listening with headsets, and the speakers and ampli“ers today are much more powerful and broadband than the products that were available 30 years ago. A study was done in 2005 and 2006 (with kids listening to IPods and newer music devices) that compared hearing tests with kids that listened with Walkmans back in the 80s and 90s. It was found that the kids listening to the newer technology have a 30 percent higher incidence of a mild hearing loss. We have all jammed out to our favorite music. I will never forget the day my brother tricked outŽ my 1974 Ford Pinto. I had a stereo system that was probably worth more than the car. I had a bass speaker that “lled up a small section in the back and speakers mounted to the hatchback so when we were at softball practice we could really crank it up. I was so proud of my Pioneer Stereo system. I loved all music „ dance, hiphop, rock, all of it. One day I pulled up into the golf course parking lot beside my dad. I was rocking out to Joan Jett. Oh my! The look he gave me, and then, What the .... are you doing?Ž I turned it down. Really I hadnt realized it was that loud. Sorry,Ž I told him. I thought he was upset because of the golf course, then he said, You are killing your hearing. If I hear it that loud again I will personally rip that system out of your car!Ž Well, alrighty then. I was 19. End of story! Help your kids and grandkids. Talk to our youth. They dont know. #ToHearBetterIsToLiveBetter.Roseann B. Kiefer, B.A., BC-HIS, is owner of Lampe and Kiefer Hearing Aid Center.

Monday, July 16, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3 www.highlandsnewssun.com Are you one of the people who still have back pain one year after the symptoms started? Now what do you do? If you have not already stopped smoking this is a good time to stop. Smoking has been shown to increase back pain probably by its effect on the arteries to the discs. This is known to be the cause disc deterioration in the neck but is not as clear an effect in the back. Work with a physical therapist to strengthen your abdominal muscles, loosen up tight sacroiliac joints (where the spine attaches to the pelvis) or stretch out knotsŽ in your back muscles, both of which interfere with normal back motion and cause pain. The therapist can also mobilize (very gently if osteoporosis is present) stiff vertebral joints. Beginning a “tness program to improve your cardiovascular “tness will not only help your heart but has been shown to decrease back pain although the reason is not clear. If your mattress is old you might consider buying a new more supportive one. If you still have back pain after trying these more study is needed. An MRI will show arthritic facet joints (the joints between vertebrae) or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the space for the spinal cord). If you have a pacemaker or other reason that you cannot have an MRI, a CT scan will give much of the same information. It shows bone very well but does not show soft tissues such as discs as well as an MRI. EMG done by a neurologist will show if a speci“c nerve or nerves is pinched. Using the information from these studies, your complaints and physical exam, your doctor will help you decide on the best course of treatment. A common “nding is small disc bulges NOT impinging on the nerve roots or spinal cord and/or spurring at several levels. This, combined with a complaint of generalized back pain and an exam without weakness or signi“cant numbness, is the most common “nding. Steroids are very helpful in relieving peripheral nerve pain. Unfortunately they do not get into spinal ”uid well because the brain and spinal cord are protected against all foreign substances good and bad by two layers of tough fascial tissue. Injecting steroids in to the area between these two layers (the epidural space) gets steroids to the irritable area in a time release dose.Ž This relieves the pain in many cases. It is done by anesthesiologists as it is the same technique with different medicines used for anesthesia in delivering babies. If there are only one or two badŽ joints, the anesthesiologist can inject either the facets or the nerve roots near them with steroids under X-ray control. If the space for the spinal cord is narrowed on MRI/CT and you have increased pain with walking, you probably have spinal stenosis. This is often confused with circulation problems. These also get worse with walking and better with resting. An exam of the pulses in your legs and oxygenation in your toes will differentiate these two diagnoses. Spinal stenosis will sometimes respond to epidural steroids but often requires surgery. The good news is that especially in the older patient surgery for spinal stenosis has the most predictable good outcome.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 16, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com If you are a cancer patient receiving chemotherapy treatment its crucial that you have your hearing tested. Certain chemotherapy drugs are ototoxic, meaning they are associated with damage to the inner ear (hearing loss and equilibrium dysfunction). Cisplatin and carboplatin have been linked to hearing loss in many studies. Other medications taken in conjunction with chemotherapy can also have lasting damage to the inner ear. Loop diuretic furosemide and the related compound ethacrynic acid used has a higher association with ototoxicity, Antibiotics in the aminoglycoside class, such as gentamicin and tobramycin, have also been related to damage in the inner ear. Early detection will give you better options for treatment. How does chemotherapy contribute to hearing loss? Chemotherapy drugs are designed to combat cancerous cells in the body. Unfortunately, they cause side effects that can damage healthy cells and organs, as well. Certain groups of chemotherapy drugs damage the hair cells in the cochlea and balance system of the inner ear that are responsible for hearing and balance. Typically, they affect the high frequencies or consonants, making detection more challenging. There are signs you should watch for that might indicate the onset of hearing loss. Balance is somewhat more challenging to identify as it may bring subtle changes in our equilibrium gradually. Symptoms include: €Sounds are muf”ed or less obvious €Oversensitivity to loud sounds €Tinnitus (ringing in the ear) €Nausea, vomiting, dizziness or feeling off balance Any of these symptoms warrant an immediate call to your doctor. Certain diagnostic audiologic tests are able to detect damage to the hair cells in the inner ear for hearing as well as equilibrium, before it shows up on traditional hearing or balance test, sometimes even before the patient is aware of a problem. If caught early, your doctor may be able to adjust the prescribed dose, or change to another agent. The goal is to stop the damage before it permanently occurs, by monitoring damage to the inner ear. This may make it possible to preserve your hearing and balance.Chemotherapy, other drugs can affect hearingBy ANDREA LIVINGSTONGUEST COLUMNIST LAKE PLACID „ Residents living in and around the Lake Placid can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other chronic, serious conditions, with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening.

Always check with your doctor before following any medical advice.CARBSFROM PAGE 1 reporting database,Ž Geldart said. Its tedious and time-consuming.Ž A prescriber must look at the database before dispensing controlled drugs to anyone who is 16 years of age or older, according to the new law. This will allow the doctor to review the patients history, alerting them to a patient who may be trying to get controlled substances from more than one doctor. This law also limits controlled substance prescriptions to three days, unless doctors document in the medical records the reasons why these medications are needed and why they were not able to use an alternative therapy. With this documentation, doctors can write seven-day prescriptions, but they must include the words Acute Pain ExceptionŽ on the prescriptions, according to Flmedical.org. Once a prescription is written, it must be entered into the E-FORCSE database by the end of the next business day, according to Florida law. By Jan. 31, 2019, all doctors and nurse practitioners who prescribe opioids must attend a mandatory education class. Since doctors face tightened regulations when prescribing pain pills, many doctors are now referring patients to pain management specialists. When doctors do prescribe pain medications, they will be asking additional questions, such as a telephone number, a requirement under the new law. They must have the full name, address, telephone number and date of birth for the person receiving the prescription, too. Before doctors write the prescription, they must check the database and verify that the person does not have a history of potential drug abuse, according to the Florida Department of Health. Once a prescription has been “lled and is ready for pickup, the pharmacy must document and enter into the database the name of the individual picking up the medication and the type of identi“cation provided, according to the Florida Department of Health. Doctors who refuse to document their prescriptions for controlled substances in the E-FORCSE database face stiff consequences. For the “rst offense, they will receive a letter of citation, or letter of concern, according to Flmedical. org. For each additional violation, the penalties and “nes continue to escalate. There are only a few exemptions for the three-day limit on opioids, including cancer, a terminal condition, relief of an incurable, progressive illness and a severe traumatic injury, Flmedical.org adds. The Florida Medical Association also lobbied to exempt pain related to major surgery, but the FMA was not able to get the governors of“ce to accept this change. Will tougher laws make a difference? Shannon Hogrefe, a pharmacist at Publix Southgate, said: Ive seen less prescriptions for scheduled drugs [since the new law was passed}.ŽLAWFROM PAGE 1 METROAlthough doctors can write prescriptions for antibiotics and other drugs for longer than three days, opioid medications have a three day limit. This limit does not apply to people who have cancer or a terminal illness. Doctors must now document a patients phone number when writing a prescription for a controlled substance.

A: Tinnitus „ the sensation of hearing a sound when no external sound is present „ often is described as a ringing, buzzing, roaring, clicking, humming, pulsing, or hissing sound. You may hear it in one or both ears. The sound may be present all the time or off and on. If you have tinnitus that doesnt go away, a hearing evaluation is recommended. In most cases, tinnitus can be managed fully. But, for some, its a chronic condition that can affect sleep and everyday function. Fortunately, there are options to reduce its effects. The cause of tinnitus is unknown. One idea is that tinnitus results from damage to the cells of the inner ear. This stems from the fact that about 90 percent of people with tinnitus have some hearing loss caused by noise. The tiny, delicate hairs in your inner ear move in relation to the pressure of sound waves. This movement triggers the release of an electrical signal through your auditory nerve to your brain. Your brain normally interprets these signals as sound. If the hair inside your inner ear are damaged, bent or broken, they may release random electrical impulses to your brain, resulting in tinnitus. In many people, tinnitus has been linked to hearing loss. It can occur from earwax blockage, from bone changes in the middle ear (otosclerosis) and as a side effect of a number of medications. Other conditions include head trauma or a concussion; inner ear conditions, such as Mnires disease or an acoustic neuroma; head or neck injuries; or problems with the joint where your lower jawbone meets your skull. High blood pressure and factors that increase blood pressure, such as stress, alcohol use and caffeine consumption can make tinnitus more noticeable. Although theres no known cure, many people can manage it. For most, the goal is to lessen their awareness of tinnitus. If tinnitus is due to a health condition, your health care provider may be able to recommend steps that could reduce the noise. This may involve removing excess earwax, treating an underlying vascular condition or changing medications if one is contributing to the problem. Hearing aids also can help. Properly “tting hearing aids can address hearing loss. And tinnitus sometimes can be reduced if you can better hear sounds around you. In some cases, white noise (masking) may help suppress tinnitus so that its less bothersome. In addition, there are several promising therapy options for management of tinnitus. These include music therapy devices and methods for managing tinnitus; tinnitus retraining therapy, which involves using devices to train the brainŽ to ignore tinnitus; and cognitive behavioral therapy, which focuses on replacing negative thoughts with positive ones to change your reaction to tinnitus. Although there is no approved drug to cure tinnitus, in some cases, medications, such as certain antidepressants, may reduce the severity of symptoms. Finally, a licensed therapist can help you develop coping techniques. Support groups also are available in person and online. Exercise and relaxation therapy also may help, as stress can worsen tinnitus.Mayo Clinic Q&A: Understanding tinnitusMAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK (TNS)

The News Wire Monday, July 16, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Hotel Transylvania 3 tops charts, Skyscraper stumblesSee page 8 HELSINKI „ President Donald Trump named the European Union as a top adversary of the United States and denounced the news media as the enemy of the peopleŽ before arriving in Helsinki on Sunday on the eve of his high-stakes summit with Russias Vladimir Putin. Trump and his top aides were downplaying expectations for Mondays summit as Trump continued to rattle allies by lumping in the EU with Russia and China after barnstorming across Europe, causing chaos at the recent NATO summit and in a trip to the United Kingdom. Trump spent the weekend in Scotland at his resort in Turnberry, gol“ng, tweeting and granting an interview to CBS News in which he named the EU, a bloc of nations that includes many of Americas closest allies, at the top of his list of biggest global foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade,Ž Trump said, adding that you wouldnt think of the European Union, but theyre a foe.Ž He said that Russia is a foe in certain respectsŽ and that China is a foe economically ... but that doesnt mean they are bad. It doesnt mean anything. It means that they are competitive.Ž Trump has been reluctant to criticize Putin over the years and has described him in recent days not as an enemy but as a competitor. On Sunday, Trump ”ew to Finland, the “nal stop on a weeklong trip that began last Tuesday. Near Trumps hotel, police roped off a group of about 60 mostly male pro-Trump demonstrators waving American ”ags. Big banners said Welcome TrumpŽ and Trump names EU a global foe, raps media before Putin summitBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSBEIRUT „ Syrian government forces unleashed hundreds of missiles on a rebel-held area near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Sunday, activists said, the latest phase in an offensive to clear southern Syria of insurgents. The governments push came after it had secured control of most of Daraa province in an offensive that began in June. On Sunday, the “rst batch of armed “ghters and their families left the city of Daraa, the provincial capital, in buses that would take them to the rebel-held Idlib province in the north. Similar deals in other parts of Syria resulted in the evacuation of thousands of opposition “ghters and civilians „ evacuations that the United Nations and rights groups have decried as forced displacement. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Sunday the success in driving the opposition out of Daraa embodies the will of his army and allied forces to liberate all of Syrian territoriesŽ of terrorism.Ž In recent months and backed by Russian air force, the Syrian government has restored control of over 60 percent of previously rebel-held territory across the country. Assad spoke during a meeting on Sunday with visiting Iranian foreign ministrys of“cial Hossein Jaberi Ansari. Assads of“ce said the two agreed that the elimination of terrorism in most of the Syrian territory has laid the most appropriate ground to reach results at the political levelŽ that could put an end to Syrias war. Syrias government refers to all armed Syrian government targets rebels near Israel-occupied GolanBy SARAH EL DEEBASSOCIATED PRESSOLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine „ The United States and Canada are engaged in a trade dispute, angering Canadians, but it doesnt seem to be having an impact on tourism. Not yet, anyway. In Old Orchard Beach, popular with Quebecers, innkeepers report that Canadian tourism remains strong despite the harsh words last month when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed that Canada wont be pushed aroundŽ and President Donald Trump called the prime minister weakŽ and dishonest.Ž Several weeks later, Canada imposed billions of dollars in retaliatory tariffs in response to the Trump administrations duties on Canadian steel and aluminum. Mostepha Azizi, a vacationer from Montreal, said hes con“dent the war of words will end and that reason will prevailŽ between the neighbors. Canada accounts for the largest number of international visitors to the U.S., with more than 20 million visitors pumping nearly $20 billion into the U.S. economy, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. The number of Canadians heading south has grown this year, and the ”ap between Trump and Trudeau after last months G7 summit in Quebec didnt change that. Border crossing data indicates the number of Canadian motorists returning from the U.S. in June grew 12.7 percent from last year, a healthy increase, according to a license plate-scanning system used by the Canadian government. A so-called Trump SlumpŽ never materialized after Trumps election, and travel to the U.S. is growing despite anecdotal evidence that some Canadians are choosing to travel elsewhere, said Allison Wallace, of Flight Centre Canada, a travel agency with 150 locations across Canada. All of that being said, weve not seen a trade war like this, so that may MARIPOSA, Calif. (AP) „ A wild“re that killed a California “re“ghter grew quickly and forced the closure of a key route into Yosemite National Park as crews contended with sweltering conditions Sunday, authorities said. The blaze that broke out Friday scorched more than 6 square miles of dry brush along steep, remote hillsides on the parks western edge. It was burning largely out of control, and of“cials shut off electricity to many areas, including Yosemite Valley, as a safety precaution. Guests were ordered to leave Yosemite Cedar Lodge on Saturday as ”ames crept up slopes and the air became thick with smoke. You cant see anything, its so smoky outside. Its crazy,Ž said front desk clerk Spencer Arebalo, one of a handful of employees who stayed behind at the popular hotel inside the park. He said it was surreal to see the property empty at the height of tourist season. Were counting on being closed at least one more day,Ž Arebalo said. Evacuations also were ordered in rural communities just outside the park, and people in nearby lodges and motels were told to be ready to leave if ”ames approach. A stretch of State Route 140 into Yosemite was closed, and motorists were urged to “nd alternate routes. Spiking temperatures and inaccessible terrain was making it dif“cult for crews to slow the ”ames, Cest la vie : Canadians still visiting US despite trade flapDeadly fire shuts down key route to Yosemite National ParkBy DAVID SHARPASSOCIATED PRESS YOSEMITE | 4 CANADIANS | 4 SUMMIT | 4 REBELS | 4 AP PHOTOSU.S. President Donald Trump, right, waves as he and his wife Melania arrive at the airport in Helsinki, Finland, Sunday on the eve of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The threat of counter-tariffs on U.S. farm goods and the impact of President Donald Trumps other policies on immigration and biofuels, though, have some farmers more worried than ever about their ability to continue eking out an existence in agriculture. No matter where you look in ag right now, you see storm clouds on the horizon and some of those are a lot closer overhead than wed care for,Ž said Chad Hart, an agricultural economist with Iowa State University. Trumps tariff threats earlier this year against China, Mexico, Canada and European Union elicited quick retaliatory measures that depressed the prices of certain U.S. agricultural products, including corn, soybeans, pork. When $34 billion worth of tariffs against China took effect July 6 and China responded with tariffs of its own, U.S. farmers were already feeling the squeeze from lower crop prices, higher land prices and other factors. The Department of Agriculture predicted before the threat of tariffs and counter-tariffs that U.S. farm income would drop this year to $60 billion, or half the $120 billion of “ve years ago. That projection is likely high, given whats transpired since. Don Bloss, who grows corn, soybeans, sorghum and wheat on his farm in the southeastern Nebraska community of Pawnee City, said hes already seen a few neighbors quit farming as they struggled to make a pro“t even before the tariff battle began this year. They arent making money. One has said the banker is giving up on them,Ž said Bloss. John Weber, who raises pigs and grows corn and soybeans with his son about 100 miles northeast of Des Moines, near Dysart, said many farmers budgets were already tight going into this growing season and the impact of tariffs has made it worse. Per-bushel soybean prices have fallen 19 percent since early May to a 10-year low and corn is down more than 15 percent. At current prices, most farmers lose money on corn, soybeans and pigs. U.S. pork producers stand to lose more than $2 billion per year because of plunging hog futures prices, the result of the Chinese retaliatory tariffs, according to Iowa State University economists projections. That means less income for pork producers and, ultimately, some of them going out of business,Ž said Jim Heimerl, a pig farmer from Johnstown, Ohio, and president of the National Pork Producers Council, an industry trade group. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has promised that Trump will restore farmer pro“tability but he hasnt speci“ed how and some economists are skeptical that the administration can come up with the billions of dollars necessary to cover losses. If this continues and the USDA does not discover a way to helicopter in and drop buckets of cash into the corn belt this fall, then I would not be surprised if there are tractor parades going to D.C. at some point in the next year,Ž said Scott Irwin, University of Illinois agricultural economist. Theres no sign of a quick resolution to the trade dispute. The U.S. and China have threatened to impose 25 percent tariffs next week on $16 billion of each others goods. And on Tuesday, Trump announced plans to impose 10 percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports by the end of August. China said it would retaliate, leaving even more U.S. farm products at risk. Meanwhile, Trumps hardline immigration policies have been making it even harder to recruit workers for pork producers, who have historically relied on immigrants for a third of their workforce. The industry had been planning a rapid expansion due to growing export demand from China and Mexico, but the trade dispute and raids spring immigration raids on a Tennessee meatpacking plant and an Iowa concrete plant have worried pork producers. Skilled and unskilled foreign workers have been crucial to maintaining and growing the workforce and revitalizing rural communities across the United States. We need more of them, not less,Ž Heimerl said. The Trump administrations willingness to issue waivers exempting petroleum re“neries from having to blend ethanol into their fuels has led to an estimated 250 million bushels of corn going unused, which contributed to lower corn prices. Theres potential here for this to turn into the worst farm “nancial crisis since the 1980s,Ž Irwin said.US trade, immigration and biofuel policies hit farmers hardBy DAVID PITTASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this July12 photo, farmer Don Bloss examines a tall sorghum plant in his eld in Pawnee City, Nebraska.

The Sun /Monday, July 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 LONDON (AP) „ A man has been charged in connection with a Greenpeace protest that breached a no-”y security zone and ”ew a banner close to the golf resort where President Donald Trump was staying, Scottish police said Sunday. The paraglider carried a banner reading Trump: Well Below ParŽ Friday night over Trumps Turnberry resort in western Scotland to protest his environmental policies. After the glider appeared, Trump was seen cutting across the grass, quickly heading to the entrance of the resort. Police in Scotland said 55-year-old man was arrested and charged. They did not give further details. The man is due to appear at a local court Monday. Police said the protester breached a no-”y zone over the Turnberry resort and committed a criminal offense. The environmental group said it informed police about the stunt before it took place. Trump and “rst lady Melania Trump are on a private trip and staying at the resort after the presidents of“cial talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May and meeting with Queen Elizabeth II. Tens of thousands took to the streets in London, Edinburgh and other British cities on Friday and Saturday to protest Trumps “rst of“cial visit to Britain. Smaller groups also demonstrated outside Trumps two golf resorts in Scotland. Trump was due to leave Scotland on Sunday ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland on Monday. Some 1,500 people demonstrated in Finlands capital on Sunday to promote human and sexual rights, democracy and environmental issues. They marched through central Helsinki shouting Human rights for all!Ž Organizers said the event wasnt aimed at either of the presidents, but was designed to focus on important global issues. A U.S.-based advocacy group splashed light messages on a wall at Finlands presidential palace urging the U.S. and Russian presidents to help “ght injustices against the LGBTQ community in Russias Chechnya region. Finnish police brie”y questioned the projectionists but allowed the light show to continue. The string of messages included phrases like Trump and Putin: Stop the Crimes against Humanity in ChechnyaŽ and Investigate LGBTQ persecution in Chechnya.Ž Ty Cobb, director of HRC Global that organized the show, said Putin should investigate and hold accountable those responsible for crimes against people who are being rounded up, put in secret prisons, tortured, some killed „ just because theyre gay.ŽParaglider charged in Trump resort flight in ScotlandMOSCOW „ Croatias president hopes her American and Russian counterparts show responsibilityŽ and remember they are the guarantors of the whole worlds stability when they hold their “rst summit Monday. In an interview Sunday with The Associated Press, Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic also shrugged off U.S. President Donald Trumps aggressive behavior with NATO allies at a meeting on Wednesday and Thursday. Its about his personality. I dont take it against him,Ž she said. Grabar-Kitarovic, who lived through Croatias 1991 independence war and governs in a region that has been caught up in larger geopolitical battles, said Trumps meeting Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin could calm international tensions instead of in”ame them. Im really hopeful that the two state leaders will show enough ... responsibility for global stability and the trans-Atlantic relationship,Ž said GrabarKitarovic, who met Putin at the Kremlin on Sunday before her countrys team played in the World Cup “nal. She expressed concern about Russian interference in southeast Europe, where Moscow has sought to use its economic in”uence and powerful energy sector to counter EU and NATO outreach. But Grabar-Kitarovic insisted on the importance of talking to Russia instead of isolating it. Grabar-Kitarovic steered clear of sensitive issues, such as the pro-Ukrainian sentiment among some Croatian soccer players at the World Cup that has angered the tournaments Russian hosts. Sports brings people together. People in all of our countries are tired of ideological differences, of going back into the past all the time,Ž she said. Grabar-Kitarovic noted that one reason the Russia-U.S. relationship is of utmost importanceŽ to her region and the broader world is so we never ever see againŽ massacres like the ones carried out during the Balkan wars of the 1990s. The intense feelings that remain from the brutal ethnic and sectarian wars that accompanied the breakup of Yugoslavia nonetheless surfaced as Croatia advanced in the World Cup competition. From Montenegro and Serbia in the east and Slovenia in the west, people in Croatias neighboring countries were split over whether to support Croatia or France in the soccer tournaments “nal match, re”ecting the persistent divisions. Croatia, a country of 4 million people, confounded expectations to make it to the World Cup “nal. The Croatian team drew increasing support for its hard-working, underdog narrative as richer, higher-pro“le teams ”amed out. Grabar-Kitarovic used her countrys surprise success on the soccer “eld to raise its pro“le. She posed in a red-andwhite checkered team jersey on social media posts at every opportunity, gave Trump a team T-shirt when they met at NATO, and joined Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron in the rain on Sunday night to congratulate Frances team one-by-one after their victory. In the AP interview, she sympathized with Trumps rationale for assailing European allies at the NATO summit in Brussels for not spending enough on weapons and their own defense. Certainly, its not fair that the United States is carrying the burden for the defense of Europe,Ž Grabar-Kitarovic said. Were “rst and foremost responsible for our own security.ŽAP Interview: Croatian leader says Trump, Putin key to peaceBy ANGELA CHARLTON and AMER COHADZICASSOCIATED PRESS POOL PHOTO VIA APCroatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, left, presents a T-shirt to Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting in the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, Sunday.

If youre having trouble with priorities, this verse should shed some light. Invest your life into that which lasts. POWELL, Wyo. (AP) „ A Wyoming city has discovered its potted plants have literally gone to pot. Officials in Powell believe pranksters planted marijuana seeds in city-owned flower pots this spring, leading unsuspecting city workers to water and care for them. The Powell Tribune reports city Parks and Recreation staff noticed the unauthorized greenery late last month while watering the pots, including one not far from the police station. Parks Superintendent Del Barton says workers pulled two plants on June 29 and took them to police. Another was found a couple days later. Barton says workers suspect there may be others. Police Chief Roy Eckerdt believes the clandestine cultivating is somebodys sense of humor.Ž After learning about the weedsŽ in the city pots, he quickly checked the planters in front of the police station.ODD NEWS Pranksters plant citys flower pots with real potU.S. Forest Service “re Capt. Mike Seymour said. Heavy “re equipment operator Braden Varney, 36, died early Saturday on the “re line, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. Varney was driving a bulldozer to create a gap in vegetation to keep the ”ames from extending into a nearby community, according to Cal Fire Fire Chief Nancy Koerperich. Varneys body likely wont be retrieved until Monday at the earliest because its in a precarious locationŽ and conditions were too dangerous over the weekend, Cal Fire Deputy Chief Scott McLean said. The wild“re is one of several burning across the state and among 56 large blazes that are active in the U.S., most in the American West, a region that is struggling with drought and heat. A blaze near the California-Oregon border that killed a 72-year-old resident and injured three “re“ghters was almost entirely contained after burning more than 60 square miles of dry brush. Crews got full control over a stubborn “re that scorched 142 square miles of brush and destroyed 20 structures in Yolo and Napa counties. Investigators said an electric livestock fence that was improperly installed sparked the ”ames. In the “re near Yosemite, investigators were trying to “nd out more details about Varneys death Saturday, but they believe he was working his way out of the “re area when he was killed, Koerperich said. This certainly is going to be devastating to his family and those of us who call him family here with Cal Fire,Ž she said. Varney had worked for Cal Fire for 10 years. His father also worked as a Cal Fire heavy equipment operator. He is survived by his wife; a daughter, 5; and son, 3. Gov. Jerry Brown ordered ”ags at the California Capitol to be ”own at half-staff to honor a man who dedicated his life to protecting his fellow Californians.ŽYOSEMITEFROM PAGE 1 change,Ž she said. Florida accounts for the largest number of visitors from the north, typically snowbirds in the winter. New England is also a popular destination, and beaches like Old Orchard Beach and Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, are an easy drive from Canadas Atlantic provinces. In Old Orchard, Canadian ”ags are ”own and many desk workers speak French. Fries are served up Canadian-style, topped with vinegar, or with gravy and cheese. For now, the value of the Canadian dollar is having a bigger impact than the ”ap between the leaders. The loonie is currently worth only 76 cents in the U.S. Claire Beaulieu, an owner of the Motel Kebek 2, said Canadians will keep coming because of the 7-mile stretch of sandy beach with plenty of rooms, food and a beachside amusement park. Canadians account for 95 percent of her bookings, she said. For tourism, visitors are more interested in amenities than politics, even though many are baf”ed by the U.S. presidents actions, she said. Fred Kennedy, owner of Aoulette Beach Resort, said his bookings are strong despite the relatively weak Canadian dollar, and he predicts relations between the countries will improve. I think its going to blow over,Ž he said. By this time next year, things will be patched up.Ž Down the beach, at Kebek 3, owner Suzanne Beaulieu said her bookings were strong, too, but she acknowledged that could change next year if U.S.Canadian relations remain frosty. At least one customer advised her shell rethink her plans next summer. She said, As long as Trump is in of“ce, I dont think Ill be back,Ž she said. Vacationer Stella Bigras, of Laval, Quebec, said the trade ”ap and war of words are between two leaders. Regular folks, she said, still get along just “ne. We are friends. We are neighbors,Ž she said. I hope were going to stay friends, and Trump and Trudeau will calm down. I think that we will always be here for the USA, even if were having stupid arguments. I think the USA will always be here for us, too. So Im pretty sure were going to through this together.ŽCANADIANSFROM PAGE 1opposition groups as terroristsŽ and accuses the West, Turkey, Israel and regional countries of supporting them. The statement came a day before President Donald Trump and Russias Vladimir Putin are to meet in Finland. Syria is expected to feature highly on the agenda. Russia is a major Assad ally. In Daraa, the evacuation deal will hand over areas held by the rebels for years back to government control. Daraa, which lies on a highway linking Damascus with Jordan, was the cradle of the 2011 uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad. Since early Sunday, government forces turned their missiles toward a stretch of land controlled by the armed opposition in northern Daraa and the countryside of adjacent Quneitra. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said government forces “red more than 800 missiles at an area between northern Daraa and the Quneitra countryside, about 2.5 miles, from the frontier with the Israelioccupied Golan Heights. The Observatory said government forces advanced on Massharah, a village in Quneitra, and rebels fought back in intense clashes that killed several pro-government “ghters. The pro-Syrian government Central Military Media said a number of insurgents were killed in the clashes. The Observatory reported airstrikes in Massharah, the “rst in over a year to hit the Quneitra countryside. It also reported airstrikes in a nearby village in northern Daraa, where government forces have been trying to retake a key hill there after failing to reach a deal with the rebels. Government troops are also seeking to advance on another town to the south through negotiations with rebels there. Capturing Nawa would enable them to advance on militants in the area linked to the Islamic State group. Daraa activist Abou Mahmoud Hourani said an estimated 400 members of the armed opposition and their families will be evacuated out of Daraa. Syrian state TV al-Ikhbariya said 10 buses carrying 407 people left for northern Syria. The station said the evacuation of nearly 1,000 people will likely be completed by Sunday.REBELSFROM PAGE 1God Bless D & M TrumpŽ and a helicopter hovered overhead. Chants of We love Trump, We love TrumpŽ broke out as the presidents motorcade passed, and Trump waved. Trump set expectations for the summit low, telling CBS News, I dont expect anything. ... I go in with very low expectations.Ž His national security adviser said they werent looking for any concrete deliverables.Ž He also said in the interview taped Saturday that he hadnt thoughtŽ about asking Putin to extradite the dozen Russian military intelligence of“cers indicted this past week in Washington on charges related to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. But after being given the idea by his interviewer, Trump said, Certainly Ill be asking about it.Ž The U.S. has no extradition treaty with Moscow and cant compel Russia to hand over citizens. Russias constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries. Contradicting Trump in an interview on ABCs This Week,Ž U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said the idea of asking Putin to turn over the 12 military intelligence of“cials was pretty sillyŽ and argued that doing so would put the U.S. president in a weak position.Ž He also argued that Trump is entering the summit with a stronger hand because of the indictments. I think the president can put this on the table and say, This is a serious matter that we need to talk about,Ž said Bolton, adding that asking for the indicted Russians to be turned over would have the opposite effect. In the CBS News interview, Trump declined to discuss his goals for the summit „ Ill let you know after the meeting,Ž he said „ but said he believes such sessions are bene“cial. He cited his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June as a good thing,Ž along with meetings hes had with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Nothing bad is going to come out ofŽ the Helsinki meeting, he said, and maybe some good will come out.Ž From aboard Air Force One, Trump complained in tweets that he wasnt getting enough credit for his meeting with Kim and railed that Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the peopleŽ as he headed to sit down with Putin. Putin is regarded as creating a culture of violence and impunity that has resulted in the killing of some Russian journalists. Trump regularly criticizes American news media outlets and has called out some journalists by name. Trump complained: No matter how well I do at the Summit,Ž hell face criticism that it wasnt good enough.Ž If I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russia over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasnt good enough „ that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!Ž he tweeted. Trump also praised Putin for holding the World Cup, which “nished up Sunday. Trump and Putin have held talks several times before. Their “rst meeting came last July when both participated in an international summit and continued for more than two hours, well over the scheduled 30 minutes. The leaders also met last fall during a separate summit in Vietnam. But Jon Huntsman, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, said Mondays meeting is really the “rst time for both presidents to actually sit across the table and have a conversation, and I hope its a detailed conversation about where we might be able to “nd some overlapping and shared interests.Ž Congressional Democrats and at least one Republican have called on Trump to pull out of Mondays meeting unless he is willing to make Russian election-meddling the top issue. Huntsman said the summit must go on because Russian engagement is needed to solve some international issues. The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russia is off-the-charts high so its a good thing these presidents are getting together,Ž he said during an appearance on NBCs Meet the Press.Ž Trump has said he will raise the issue of Russian election meddling, along with Syria, Ukraine, nuclear proliferation and other topics. Bolton described the meeting as unstructuredŽ and said: Were not looking for concrete deliverables here.ŽSUMMITFROM PAGE 1 LEHTIKUVA VIA APTeppo Marttila, dressed as Uncle Sam, participates in the demonstration by the True Finns youth members in support of Donald Trump, in Helsinki, Finland on Sunday.

(AP) „ A crash involving a commercial passenger bus and three other vehicles on a New Mexico highway early Sunday killed three people and injured 24 others, some critically, authorities said. One of the people killed was in a car that struck a pickup truck from behind around 2 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 25 just north of Bernalillo, about 18 miles north of Albuquerque, Sandoval County Sheriffs Of“ce spokesman Lt. Keith Elder said. The bus driver took evasive action to avoid hitting the disabled car and its driver, who was ejected. But the bus driver lost control and the bus rolled onto its right side. It was then sideswiped by a semitruck, according to Elder. Rio Rancho Fire Rescue said emergency crews had to extricate several people who were trapped in the bus using a tool that pries open parts of a vehicle. Photos show a mangled car thats almost entirely ”attened and the bus on its side. At least two of the injured were airlifted from the scene by medical helicopters. It wasnt immediately known whether the other two persons who died were bus passengers or were in one of the other vehicles involved. Elder said the names of the three dead were being withheld until relatives could be noti“ed. Sheriffs of“cials said 35 people were on the bus operated by El PasoLos Angeles Limousine Express. Its route wasnt immediately known and of“cials of the bus company didnt immediately comment on the accident. Emergency responders reported treating 38 people at the accident scene with injuries ranging from broken bones and lacerations to head and internal injuries, authorities said. Twelve of the injured were taken to University of New Mexico Hospital, where three were in critical condition, of“cials said. Eight patients were taken to another hospital, and authorities said six were treated and released. The accident closed Interstate 25 in both directions for more than 11 hours.Passenger bus crash kills 3, injures 24 othersFROM PAGE ONE

The Sun /Monday, July 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband is a smoker. I have begged him to quit, but he won't. He sleeps sitting up, with his legs hanging, because he has trouble breathing. This way of sleeping causes his feet and ankles to swell. His doctor ordered diuretics and urged him to quit smoking. He also recommended that he sleep in a bed, with his legs elevated „ that would help with the swelling. My husband doesn't agree. My husband reads your column every day. Maybe you can convince him. „ G.U. ANSWER: Smoking is one of the hardest habits to break. Many people who have stopped using heroin have told me that quitting smoking is harder. However, anyone can do it, and he needs to. Sleeping with the legs hanging o the bed is a serious red ag. The rst thing we are taught to look for in people who demonstrate this behavior is critical blockages in the arteries of the legs. People nd that they don't have leg pain when they do this, but blockages could be so severe that urgent treatment is needed „ a surgical repair or an alternative procedure, like angioplasty, where blockages are opened with a balloon. However, your husband also is noting shortness of breath, and this should prompt concern about both blockages in the arteries to the heart and heart failure, which is the inability of the heart to squeeze out enough blood AND relax under low pressure. Quitting smoking will help with all of the three potential problems (and many more), but right now he needs urgent evaluation of his heart (probably starting with an echocardiogram), and if he has any symptoms of leg pain or heaviness, especially with exercise, he also should have a vascular study to look for blockages in the arteries of the leg. The booklet on COPD explains both emphysema and chronic bronchitis, the two elements of COPD, in detail.

This is a long trip. Do you have any information on this kind of treatment closer to home? „ L.O.S. ANSWER: Muscular dystrophies are a group of genetic diseases that cause progressive muscle weakness and atrophy. There have been some case reports of people being treated with stem cells for Duchenne's muscular dystrophy „ the most common and most serious cause for someone in your grandson's age group „ but research into this type of treatment is still preliminary, albeit hopeful. In the few cases for which there is information, the stem cells began to lose eectiveness after a few months, requiring multiple injections yearly. So, it isn't as good a treatment as could be desired. Many researchers are working on this, and you can nd out where the research is going on at clinicaltrials.gov. If possible, I would encourage enrollment into a trial, so that your grandson can be part of the process that gathers knowledge about the best way to treat this condition. I found trials using gene therapy that are recruiting people now.DEAR ABBY: My daughter has graduated from high school. She had been in a residential treatment program for depression the year and a half prior to returning to this school. Her old friends had promised to be there for her when she returned. After she was back for three months, her friends stopped inviting her to things and even talked behind her back in a group chat that was started by a dierent group. The girls' moms knew some of this was going on and did nothing about it. It has been a dicult journey for my daughter as well as for me. Now that the girls have all graduated, I'm wondering if I should contact any of them or their moms and ask what happened. It was painful for me to watch my daughter go through weekends when her "friends" were out at parties she wasn't invited to. It was heartbreaking when no one came to her holiday or birthday parties. I am wondering if asking the girls/moms for an explanation can help my daughter learn from it. Please let me know what you think. „ Mama Bear Out West DEAR MAMA BEAR: Your daughter has survived high school, and along with it the cruel treatment of the girls who promised to befriend her. For that, I congratulate her. Teenagers can be so completely centered on themselves that the feelings of others do not exist for them. Also, girls in high school tend to form cliques. Add to that the fact that there is so much misunderstanding about mental illness „ not only among teens but also adults „ and I have a pretty good idea of what happened and so should you. What life lesson do you think exploring this with the other parents will accomplish for your daughter? Your eorts would be better spent by continuing to emotionally support her and encouraging her to move forward with her life. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is from a reader who was annoyed by people in a movie theater: "Dear Heloise: My wife and I recently went to a movie we had been eager to see. We don't go to the movies very often, and we might never go again. People were so rude. The people behind us kept talking even after we politely asked them to stop. Another couple let their toddler run up and down the aisle, and the child had a tantrum because his parents wouldn't take him home. People had cellphones go o and carried on conversations in the theater. We got up in the middle of the movie, asked for the manager and requested a refund. He gave it to us and was very nice. "People don't go to a theater to hear you talk or to see your child have a meltdown, and please, folks, turn o your cellphones. It's just good manners." „ Joseph K. in MilwaukeeQuitting smoking has positive eects on overall health Girl's old friends turn away when she returns to school Movie theater madnessHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

When you believe at a deep level that this is true, you will perform to the very best of your ability. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It has been said that books are golden houses. Indeed, those who take the time to read cannot help but grow in knowledge and empathy, especially ction, also known as the lie that tells the truth.Ž GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Eyes give people away. Youll get clues, as well as tell-all testaments, from peoples eyes today. Some will shield those windows to the soul under dark glasses or divert them into phone screens; those are wasted opportunities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youve let go of certain habits and things you used to enjoy. Probably, the loss was appropriate; other things have become more important. But theres still a nostalgic pang. Youll feel that today. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stop with the comparisons. The life challenges of others may seem greater than those you face, but it matters not at all. Your challenges, whatever size they may be, are real. Take them on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Connecting with yourself, although not the only connection youll make today, is among the most important connections of the bunch. Because of this, the time you have solo is to be kept as sacred as other appointments. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). They want you at the party, and you may or may not want to be there, but if you go, you wont be sorry. So just say yes. Just go. And then dont think too much about it, or youll change your mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Theres a myth about creativity, that it happens somehow outside the space of dayto-day life, when indeed it grows out of the soil of daily life. It thrives on the relentlessness of the mundane. Youll notice that today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are not imprisoned by circumstances. There are exits everywhere. Notice them and youll stop feeling as if you haveŽ to do this or that and instead start feeling as if you getŽ to do it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Someone is leaning on you too hard, and thats making you feel as if youre not free. But you are free. Think of all the ways! You will be liberated by your imaginings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It takes condence and trust to be welcoming. Your open attitude will attract both good and bad, which is why its best to add a screen to that open-door policy. Employing a certain amount of psychic protection will be wise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your desires, motivations and spontaneous urges used to drive the day, and now they dont. Its just a part of growing up. To some degree, human advancement involves putting the needs of others above your own. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (July 16). The main themes over the next three months will be honing skills and happy times with family. A general area of expertise has served you well, but when you get specialized in September, your compensation will be hefty. Youll pay homage in October and be part of a sacred experience. Advances in tech make life better in 2019. Virgo and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 32, 14, 44, 48 and 1.

Worldwide, Hotel Transylvania 3Ž has already earned more than $100 million. Its really terri“c,Ž said Adrian Smith, Sonys head of domestic distribution. Were positioned to take advantage of the valuable summer weekdays and there are six weeks of summer left.Ž The successful series has grossed over $900 million worldwide to date. Going into the weekend, experts expected a threeway race to the top between Hotel Transylvania 3,Ž SkyscraperŽ and Ant-Man and the Wasp,Ž but the family “lm won by a large margin. There havent been a lot of options for families this summer,Ž said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. They become instant hits.Ž Johnsons Skyscraper,Ž a rare original summer blockbuster, remained earthbound in its “rst weekend in North America. The Universal Pictures “lm brought in only $25.5 million domestically. SkyscraperŽ cost a reported $125 million to produce, not accounting for marketing costs. Johnson has been a consistent presence in movie theaters this year with both Jumanji: Welcome to the JungleŽ and RampageŽ prior to Skyscraper.Ž Both previous “lms opened in the $35 million range, and while JumanjiŽ went on to be a worldwide box of“ce juggernaut, RampageŽ petered out domestically just under $100 million. As with Rampage,Ž however, the studio is expecting the majority of SkyscraperŽ pro“ts to come from international audiences. Internationally, SkyscraperŽ grossed $40.4 million from 57 territories for a global total of $65.9 million. Second place went to Disney and Marvels AntMan and the Wasp,Ž which brought in an additional $28.8 million in its second weekend, down 62 percent from last week. Its one of the steeper second week falls in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The “rst AntManŽ fell 53 percent. Incredibles 2Ž took fourth place with $16.2 million and Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomŽ rounded out the top “ve with $15.5 million. A handful of smaller releases made notable splashes this weekend including Annapurnas buzzy dystopian satire Sorry to Bother You,Ž which opened in limited release last week and added 789 locations this weekend. It earned $4.3 million in its expansion for spot No. 7 on the charts. The coming of age “lm Eighth GradeŽ also scored top marks, and the highest per theater average of the year, with $252,284 from four theaters. The well-reviewed pic will expand nationwide in the coming weeks. And documentaries continue to perform well too, including the Fred Rogers doc Wont You Be My Neighbor?Ž which added $1.9 million from 868 theaters, and Three Identical StrangersŽ which expanded to 167 theaters and grossed $1.2 million.

Brown starred in the NBC comedy CommunityŽ and already was stepping in for Hardwick as moderator of Walking DeadŽ panels next week at San Diego Comic-Con. Hardwick has acknowledged that an online post by his exgirlfriend Chloe Dykstra alleging she had been sexually assaulted and emotionally abused referred to him.

He had been elected the AL starter and was tremendously excited about going back to play in Washington, where he played parts of seven seasons for the Nats as somewhat of a fan favorite, and was rumored to possibly be in line for a return. For him to miss the All-Star Game is pretty telling,Ž Cash said. He was so excited about that and we were excited for him.Ž The Rays kept Ramos on the active roster Sunday, though that may have been a matter of logistics. 1B C.J.

Cash said they will have a fuller read on the extent of the injury, and the absence, when Ramos returns to St. Petersburg, but he is surely headed to the DL. Were going to have to make a decision,Ž Cash said. Well see how he responds over the break.

John Cynn won the series marquee no-limit Texas Hold em main event Sunday in Las Vegas, surrounded by a cheering crowd that included his dad. He eliminated Tony Miles on the 442th hand of the final table, after playing 199 hands just against each other with bricks of $100 bills and a gold bracelet at the table. Cynn, 33, became $8.8 million richer after playing against Miles for more than 10 hours. He was visibly shocked, grabbed his head and momentarily crouched as the crowd roared after his win. Right now, I do feel pretty overwhelmed,Ž he said. ... The money is very significant, but I do like to think that I dont need the money to be happy, but at the same time, practically, its going to make things a lot easier, things I want to do in life.Ž He told reporters early Sunday that the money will be life-changingŽ but does not have immediate plans to spend it. Miles, a resident of Lake Mary, Florida, took home $5 million. He hugged many of his supporters after his defeat and shed some tears off stage. Cynns final king of clubs and jack of clubs was stronger than Miles, who went all in with queen of clubs and eight of hearts. The community cards were king of hearts, king of diamonds, five of hearts, eight of diamonds and four of spades. Each of the nine players who made it to the final table was guaranteed at least $1 million. They represented the U.S., Australia, France and Ukraine.John Cynn claims World Series of Poker title, wins $8.8M By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON „ Novak Djokovic acknowledged that he was worried. His coach was, too. Could Djokovic ever return to the top of tennis? To the heights hed already reached? Could he put aside the time lost to a painful right elbow that required surgery and the disappointment of poorfor-him results? Could he end a Grand Slam drought that lasted more than two years? All of that fretting seemed misplaced Sunday night. Back at his best, Djokovic became Wimbledons champion for the fourth time, grabbing a lead right away against a weary Kevin Anderson in the final and holding off a late challenge to win 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (3). There were several moments where I was frustrated and questioning whether I can get back (to the) desired level or not. But that makes this whole journey even more special for me,Ž Djokovic said. Its easy to talk now and look back at it and be kind of grateful, but I really am grateful to go through this kind of, so to say, mixed emotions, turbulences as well, mentally, moments of doubt and disappointment and frustration, anger.Ž It is Djokovics 13th major trophy, the fourthhighest total in the history of mens tennis, trailing only Roger Federers 20, Rafael Nadals 17 and his childhood idol Pete Sampras 14. But its also Djokovics first since he completed a career Grand Slam at the 2016 French Open. It was a long journey,Ž the 31-year-old from Serbia said. I couldnt pick a better place, to be honest, in the tennis world to peak and to make a comeback.Ž A year ago at the All England Club, Djokovic quit during his quarterfinal because of the elbow, then took the rest of 2017 off.

With a touch as delicate as anything seen at the Bolshoi, he simply nudged the ball forward, sizing up the goal.

He is making a team-high $10.5 million this season and a free agent at the end of the year, expecting to go to market and land a lucrative deal, with $40 million over three years bandied about. An absence of more than a month would pretty much wipe that out, and even if the Rays got him through waivers to make an deal there is an Aug. 31 deadline to be eligible for postseason play. The Rays dont have many good options in house for a replacement. Adam Moore is playing at Triple-A Durham and has some big-league time. Or they could opt to call up prospect Nick Ciuffo, who is also with Durham after serving a 50-game drug suspension.RAYSFrom Page 1Florida Lottery www.flalottery.comPICK 2July 15N............................ 6-7 July 15D............................ 4-2 July 14N............................ 7-3 July 14D............................ 0-2 July 13N............................ 1-7 July 13D............................ 8-7PICK 3July 15N......................... 8-3-0 July 15 D........................ 0-0-0 July 14N......................... 8-0-6 July 14D......................... 1-0-1 July 13N......................... 1-1-5 July 13D......................... 5-0-6PICK 4 July 15N..................... 2-2-6-0 July 15D..................... 1-3-5-5 July 14N..................... 8-1-6-4 July 14D..................... 2-1-3-3 July 13N..................... 4-2-5-0 July 13D......................6-6-7-3PICK 5July 15N.................. 0-6-6-0-5 July 15D.................. 6-6-0-1-4 July 14N.................. 4-8-7-0-4 July 14D.................. 6-9-5-8-9 July 13N................. 9-4-8-9-8 July 13D................. 8-8-1-8-8 D-Day, N-NightFANTASY 5July 14............ 12-14-19-22-23 July 13............ 14-19-20-27-34 July 12............ 11-18-20-29-36 € € € PAYOFF for July 14 2.................... 5-digit winners $112,426.15 342................ 4-digit winners $106.00 ..... 10,487.......... 3-digit winners $9.50CASH FOR LIFEJuly 12............ 1-20-28-48-56 Cash Ball............................. 4 €€€ PAYOFF FOR July 9 0............... 5-5 CB $1,000/Day 0.................. 5-5 $1,000/Week 2....................... 4-5 CB $2,500 16.............................. 4-5 $500LUCKY MONEYJuly 13..................... 2-9-25-35 Lucky Ball.......................... 16 €€€ PAYOFF FOR July 13 0............... 4-of-4 LB $500,000 2................... 4-of-4 $2,306.00 34.............. 3-of-4 LB $297.00 525................... 3-of-4 $56.50 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $550,000LOTTOJuly 14........ 1-19-34-48-49-52 €€€ PAYOFF FOR July 14 0.................... 6-digit winners $3 million 17.................. 5-digit winners $4,331.50 991................ 4-digit winners $68.50 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $4 millionPOWERBALLJuly 14........... 22-41-42-49-67 Powerball........................... 11 PAYOFF FOR July 14 0..... 5-5 + PB..... $100 Million 0..... 5-5.................. $1 Million 1..... 4-5 + PB............. $50,000 19...................................... 4-5 $100 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $110 Million €€€MEGA MILLIONSJuly 13.................... 21-22-39-59-68 Mega Ball..................................... 2 €€€ PAYOFF FOR July 13 0..... 5 of 5 + MB........ $340 Million 0..... 5 of 5...................... $1 Million 0..... 4 of 5 + MB............... $10,000 34..... 4 of 5............................ $500 ESTIMATED JACKPOT $375 MillionMLB BASEBALL 8 p.m. ESPN „ 2018 Home Run Derby, at Washington ESPNEWS „ 2018 Home Run Derby, Statcast edition, at Washington NBA BASKETBALL 8:30 p.m. ESPN2 „ Summer League, Playoffs, semi“ nal, Detroit-L.A.

Charlottes first run came in the 4th inning. Catcher Joey Roach, one of three Stone Crabs with two hits, singled home Tristan Gray. The Stone Crabs would have to wait until the 7th inning before plating another run, as Florida State League allstar Miles Mastrobuoni singled to center scoring Rene Pinto. However, the 9th inning would be the critical component in securing Sundays victory. It all started with Stone Crabs first baseman Kevin Padlo reaching on a throwing error. Miles Mastrobuoni would draw a walk. Both runners would advance on a wild pitch, setting the stage for Josh Lowes single to center. Some heads up base running by Lowe found him advancing to second on the throw. Robbie Tenerowicz, another of Charlottes FSL all-stars, singled home Lowe with the go-ahead run. Josh Fleming started for the Stone Crabs, working six innings, allowing seven hits and four runs, while striking out five. He would give way to Florida State League all-star, Willy Ortiz, who would pitch two scoreless innings, and the right-hander from the Dominican Republic would earn his seventh victory in 2018.

A fan helped Chris Froome get going after he tumbled onto grass lining the road. Romain Bardet recovered from three punctured tires. And they were only the highest-profile riders to face mishaps in the action-packed cobblestoned Stage 9 of the Tour de France on Sunday. Every cyclist who reached the finish was covered in dust „ many with their jerseys torn to shreds from crashes. Spanish rider Gorka Izaguirre had the unusual experience of his rear wheel buckling to the point that it looked like something out of a scrap heap. John Degenkolb won a three-man sprint to take victory in a memorable stage, while overall contender Porte crashed out of the race. Yellow-jersey holder Greg Van Avermaet crossed second and increased his overall lead to 43 seconds ahead of Geraint Thomas, a teammate of Froomes at Sky. Yves Lampaert of QuickStep finished third. It was a pretty hectic day,Ž Van Avermaet said after the dust settled. Added Thomas, It was just hard all day from kilometer zero.

The Rays sent down RHP Chih-Wei Hu to make room on the 25-man roster and designated for assignment RHP Ryan Weber to make room on the 40-man roster for Milner, who will join them for Sundays game, the last one before the All-Star break. Milner, 27, was DFAd on Tuesday, having made 10 appearances with the Phillies, posting a 7.71 ERA (though that went up from 2.25 after his last outing), spending most of the season at Triple-A. He pitched in 37 games last season for the Phillies, posting a 2.01 ERA. He was in the news the opening week of the season as the reliever rookie Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler called into a game even though he had not warmed up. With Adam Kolarek throwing 24 pitches Saturday, Jose Alvarado still on family medical leave and Jonny Venters and Vidal Nuno on the DL, the Rays didnt have any other options for a lefty reliever. They decided to not call up intriguing prospect Colin Poche from Durham.

Jake Cave singled to start the 10th against Matt Andriese (2-4), the ninth pitcher for the Rays, and moved up on a stolen base and a sacrifice bunt. Manager Kevin Cash ordered two intentional walks to load the bases for force-out possibilities and brought left fielder Joey Wendle in for a five-man infield. Dozier squashed the strategy with his 16th home run of the season and the fourth walk-off win for the Twins. Alan Busenitz (3-0) got the last four outs for the Twins, who headed into the All-Star break with a 9-2 record on their season-long homestand, which followed a 1-8 road trip. The Rays totaled 47 hits over the last three games of the four-game series but won only once. Wendles two-out single in the ninth off Trevor Hildenberger stretched out a game the Twins took control of in the bottom of the eighth on Eddie Rosarios two-out RBI single after Joe Mauer tied the game with a bases-loaded walk. The Twins were denied a second score on Rosarios hit when Cave was thrown out at the plate. The call was reviewed and upheld, though tough-to-tell replays appeared to reveal Caves foot sliding underneath Jesus Sucres tag. Sucre hit a two-run double with two outs in the eighth for the Rays, who led 4-1 until the seventh inning on a steamy afternoon with even steamier exchanges between the two teams. Robbie Grossman, who had an RBI single in the second inning off de facto starter Ryne Stanek, started the seventh with a single against Adam Kolarek. With two outs and two on, Rosario sneaked a single into left field to cut the deficit to 4-2. Dozier greeted Diego Castillo with an RBI single by beating out a deep ground ball to third, and first baseman C.J. Crons relay throw back to third skipped past Daniel Robertson for an error that let the Twins tie the game. Then Dozier made Castillo flinch for a balk call, taking an animated jog down the line to the plate in hand-clapping celebration of the go-ahead run.TEMPERS, TEMPERSEduardo Escobar was batting during the balk. Two bench-and-bullpenemptying arguments later, Minnesotas third baseman was ejected for his role in the shouting matches that were profane but stayed punching-and-shovingfree. After Robertson yelled at Escobar to return to the box after stepping out, Escobar started toward him with his own choice words and angry gestures. That brought everyone in uniform to the infield for the first not-so-cordial summer gathering, with pitcher Chris Archer the most obviously upset at Escobar from the Rays side. Archer was on the mound Saturday when Rosario unsuccessfully tried to lure him into a balk. Escobar struck out after the crowd was dispersed, and as the Rays infielders ran by him to the dugout he resumed airing his grievances. That triggered the second bench clearing and the first career ejection for Escobar. Sucre and Twins utility man Willians Astudillo, who was pitching on Saturday when Carlos Gomez admired a home run against him, shouted and gestured at each other during that scrum. Cash was an active participant in the yelling, too.MLB: TWINS 11, RAYS 7Rays fall 11-7 after 10th inning grand slam

It might be a long time before anyone secures the title as emphatically as Davies did. Davies went virtually unchallenged in Sundays final round of the inaugural USGA championship for women 50 and older, claiming the title by 10 strokes over Juli Inkster. Its great seeing this (trophy) paraded down for the very first time and I get my name on it first, you know?Ž Davies said. This championship will be played for many years and there will only be one first winner „ obviously a proud moment for me to win that.Ž The 54-year-old Davies shot a 5-under 68 to finish at 16-under 276 at Chicago Golf Club. It was the English players 85th career win, and she felt the pressure even though her lead was rarely in danger. I havent won for eight years „ my last win was India, 2010,Ž Davies said. So thats the pressure youre playing under, when youre trying to do something for yourself, prove to yourself you can still win. So this ranks highly up there. And obviously its a USGA event. Its hard comparing tournaments, but this is very high on my list of achievements.Ž A 7-under 66 Saturday provided Davies with a five-shot lead over Inkster and what she said would be a sleepless night worrying about the pressure. The World Golf Hall of Famer widened her advantage early Sunday when she birdied the par-5 second hole and Inkster made bogey. Davies said a par she salvaged at the 10th was another turning point. It wasnt the greatest hole I ever played, but I think that, to me, was when I really started to think I might have one hand on the trophy and just had to get the other one in there.Ž Inkster shot an evenpar 73. Englands Trish Johnson also shot 73 to finish third, 12 shots back. I mean, she was absolutely spectacular this week,Ž Johnson said about Davies. Ive played against her for 35 years. Yesterday was the best I have ever seen her play in her entire career. She just said walking down 18 it was best ballstriking round she ever had. Considering shes won 85 tournaments, thats quite some feat.Ž Danielle Ammaccapane was fourth and Yuko Saito finished fifth. Martha Leach was the top amateur, tying for 10th at 6-over 298. Davies plans to play in the Womens British Open next month, and called this win a confidence-booster as she continues to compete against the younger generation. She finished tied for second at the LPGA Tours Bank of Hope Founders Cup earlier this year. You build up a little bit of momentum, and a golf course is a golf course,Ž Davies said. Sometimes the field strength is a little bit different, but in your own mind if youve done something like this, 16-under for four rounds around a proper championship course, it cant do anything but fill you full of confidence.ŽPort Charlottes Lovander comes out of retirement, “ nishes T-12By BILL JONESSun CorrespondentPort Charlottes Marilyn Lovander, a former golfer on the LPGA Tour and the SBC Futures Tour, and a part-time pro shop assistant at St. Andrews South Golf Club in Punta Gorda, came out of retirement this past week, to finish tied for 12th in the inaugural USGA Senior Womens Open at the Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton, Ill. The SBC Futures Tour player of the year in 1994 and 1997, found herself in competition with the eras best national and international senior golf professionals and amateurs. Lovander birdied the 15th and 18th holes during Sundays final round. She shot a 1-over-par 74, placing 12th out of 118 competitors. Lovander, 63, recorded rounds of 73-76-76-74, finishing 7-over-par, on the demanding 6,178yard par 73 course. A resident of South Gulf Coe, Lovander spent much of her pretournament practice at St. Andrews, where she established the course record of 62, from the mens back tees.Laura Davies cruises to victory in US Senior Womens OpenGOLF: US SENIOR WOMENS OPEN of the war that broke up the former Yugoslavia, it was clear when France had first a one-goal and then a two-goal lead that only a sledgehammer blow from Les Bleus would put the Croatians down for good. And heres the amazing thing: the truly special teenage talent who landed it, Mbappe, is just getting started. Just think: At the next World Cup in Qatar in 2022, Frances rough diamond will still be just 23. That is about the same age that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were when they began their shared 10-year lock on the Ballon dOr, footballs top individual trophy that sooner rather than later seems bound to have Mbappes name attached to it, too. At the US-CanadaMexico World Cup in 2026, Mbappe will be in his polished prime, at age 27. Book tickets now. My ambition is to go further. As far as my potential allows me, to my limits,Ž he said. Winning a World Cup so young opens other doors. Now, I have to keep working. Im only at the start of the road.Ž Mbappes goal in the 65th minute made it 4-1 for France, effectively guaranteeing a second World Cup victory for Les Bleus to add to the first won by their greatest player, Zinedine Zidane, and his teammates in 1998. Mbappe wears the No. 10 jersey as Zidane did. That is Mbappes choice. And that says everything about his deep well of ambition and how high he is aiming. Croatia did get a second goal in the 69th minute to keep the final stretch ticklish with uncertainty. But it was clear after Mbappes goal that the match would end only one way: With the blocks of French fans in Moscows Luzhniki Stadium and the millions watching back in France erupting in a red-whiteand-blue frenzy of joy. As well as the gold trophy and the second star Les Bleus will now forever be able to wear on their shirts, theres much for the French to be proud of in this team. Like the black-blancbeurŽ „ black, white and Arab „ team of 1998, it reflects modern France: multi-racial and made richer by its diversity. That is the France that we like: Different origins, but all united,Ž said striker Antoine Griezmann. MBAPPEFrom Page 1 thinking really negative.Ž They built the new Novak,Ž as Vajda explained it. Retooled his serve. Made adjustments to other strokes. Still, Djokovic was so dispirited by his upset loss at the French Open last month that he vowed, in the heat of the moment, to skip the grass-court circuit. Good thing he didnt stick to that. Because he fell out of the top 20 for the first time in more than a decade, the No. 21 Djokovic is the lowestranked Wimbledon titlist since Goran Ivanisevic in 2001. On Sunday, under a pale blue sky interrupted by only the occasional soft white puff of cloud, Djokovic looked far more like a guy who used to be No. 1. The first two sets,Ž said Anderson, who played college tennis at the University of Illinois, Novak beat up on me pretty bad.Ž Anderson could be excused for exhaustion. His semifinal was the second-longest Grand Slam match in history, lasting more than 6 hours until he edged John Isner 26-24 in the fifth set. And that followed another extended fifth set in his 13-11 upset of eighttime champion Federer in the q uarterfinals. Anderson also blamed some nerves. This was, after all, the 22nd Grand Slam final for Djokovic, and the second for Anderson, the runnerup at last years U.S. Open and aiming to become the first South African man to win Wimbledon. He was so out of sorts, his strokes so off-themark, that Djokovic gathered eight of the first 10 games even though he only conjured up two winners. No need for more, because Anderson gifted him 15 unforced errors in that span. I didnt really find my form the way I wanted to,Ž said Anderson, whose right elbow was massaged by a trainer after the first set. Of course, my body didnt feel g reat.ŽTENNISFrom Page 1

He was 35. Hamilton Police said Emery was identified as the victim of a swimming accident Sunday morning. Staff sergeant Paul Evans said police received a call just after 6 a.m. that an adult swimmer did not surface and that the Niagara Police assisted in the recovery effort. Emerys body was recovered just before 3 p.m. Sunday. Hamilton Police said a cause of death would be confirmed after a post-mortem. Nicknamed RazorŽ for his aggressive style, Emery played parts of 11 seasons with the Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks from 2003-2015. He helped the Senators reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2007 and won it as a backup with the Blackhawks in 2013. Ray was an outstanding teammate and an extremely gifted goaltender,Ž Flyers president Paul Holmgren said. Rays talent, work ethic and determination helped him enjoy a successful 11-year NHL career.Ž Emery battled avascular necrosis, the same serious hip ailment that ended two-sport star Bo Jacksons career. He and fellow Blackhawks netminder Corey Crawford combined to win the William Jennings Trophy for allowing the leagues fewest goals during the lockout-shortened 2013 season and finished seventh in Vezina Trophy voting. The Blackhawks will fondly remember Ray as a fierce competitor, a good teammate and a Stanley Cup champion,Ž the team said in a statement. Throughout his career, Emery dealt with off-ice problems, including an incident of road rage, assault of a trainer in Russia and behavior that led to him being sent home from Ottawas training camp. Rays smile and intelligence made him a magnetic personality,Ž said Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas, who knew Emery from junior hockey and the goalies stint with the American Hockey Leagues Marlies. You always rooted for him to reach his vast potential even as he went through the many ups and downs of his playing career.Ž Emery played in Zac Rinaldos charity hockey game Saturday night in Hamilton. After word of his death spread, condolences poured out from the hockey community. I will always remember Ray as a good person first & foremost,Ž friend and former teammate Dan Carcillo wrote on Twitter. I envied his demeanor. He had a contagious personality. People were drawn to him. ... I will never forget his selflessness. Man this hurts. Rest easy Uncle Ray Ray.Ž Former teammates lauded Emerys mentorship and leadership, especially in his final professional season in the AHL in 2015-16. Enforcer-turned-analyst Paul Bissonnette, a teammate with the AHLs Ontario Reign, said Emery would treat other players to dinner almost every night. Id heard nothing but great things before meeting him and it was true,Ž Bissonnette said. He was awesome. Great in the locker room and just made life enjoyable.ŽFormer NHL goalie Ray Emery drowns in Hamilton, OntarioAP PHOTORay Emery has drowned in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. He was 35. Hamilton Police confirmed Emery was identified as the victim of the swimming accident Sunday, July 15, 2018. By GARY B. GRAVESAssociated PressSPARTA, Ky. „ Martin Truex Jr. is feeling confident after his most dominant performance this season. Thats understandable, considering the defending Cup Series champion and his Furniture Row Racing team are slightly ahead of last seasons pace, with signs of even better things to come. I feel great about where were at,Ž Truex said Saturday night after leading 174 laps from the pole to repeat as winner of Kentucky Speedways 400-mile race Most importantly, I feel like as a team were getting dialed in more so like we were last year. I feel like were getting closer, getting more dialed in to what were doing, to what the car wants with the new rules and things. And thats how I felt like we were last year.Ž Truexs fourth victory and 13th top-10 of 2018 in the No. 78 Toyota Camry are each one better than after this event a y ear a g o, though this race was run a week later. He still trails points leader Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick but cut his deficit to Busch from 120 points to 110. Busch and Harvick fished fourth and fifth, respectively, at Kentucky to maintain their positions. But Truex is serving notice if being the driver to beat when the playoffs begin in September. Truex won his third race in six starts and posted his eighth top-four in the past nine. His mastery of Kentuckys 1.5-mile layout ought to boost confidence at the handful of similarlength ovals that comprise half the playoff schedule. His Denver-based team, meanwhile, looks to build on encouraging efforts across all tracks. Were just continuing to try and get better and its been a lot of hard work,Ž crew chief Cole Pearn said. I dont know if its the same as last year or not, but I think weve kind of thrown that away and just focused on the moment. Well see where the future takes us.ŽTruex seeking more success after third win NHLBy EILEEN NGAssociated PressKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia „ Manny Pacquiao won by knockout for the first time in nine years to claim the World Boxing Association welterweight title, and made a proclamation. This is it. I am back in boxing,Ž the 39-year-old Pacquiao said after his seventh-round knockout of Lucas Matthysse on Sunday. I am not done. Im still there.Ž It was Pacquiaos first bout since a contentious loss last year to Jeff Horn in Australia, and since parting ways with longtime trainer Freddie Roach to work with Buboy Fernandez. Its just a matter of time. You have to rest and get it back and thats what I did.Ž Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) knocked Matthysse down onto one knee in the third and fifth rounds. He knocked the Argentine down again in the seventh, and Matthysse spat out his mouthpiece, causing a frenzy among Pacquiao fans in the stadium. I am not boasting but ... I think hes hurting from my punches,Ž said Pacquiao, who hadnt won by knockout since 2009. Every punch that I throw, hes hurt. I think hes scared of my punches.Ž Matthysse, who won 36 out of 39 matches by knockout, said Pacquiao was a great fighter, a great legend,Ž adding that he planned to take a break. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad attended the fight, the biggest in the country since the 1975 heavyweight clash between Muhammad Ali and Australian Joe Bugner. I would like to congratulate Senator Manny Pacquiao for giving us pride and bringing the Filipino nation together once more,Ž said Duterte, who flew to Malaysia for the bout ahead of an official visit.Pacquiao wins 60th career “ ght with KOAUTO RACING: NASCAR SOCCER: WORLD CUP BOXING By ELAINE GANLEYAssociated PressPARIS „ It was a victory for all of France and the home crowd did it justice, pouring into Paris Champs-Elysees Avenue by the tens of thousands to celebrate in an explosion of joy. Frances 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday marked the second time in 20 years that France has won the World Cup, and came at a time when the people feel needy. It represents enormous things,Ž said Goffrey Hamsik, dressed in a hat resembling a rooster „ the French national symbol „ and a shirt with the No. 10 for Kylian Mpappe, the 19-year-old breakout star who hails from the Paris suburb of Bondy. Weve had lots of problems in France these past years,Ž he said, recalling deadly terror attacks. This is good for the morale ... Here, we are all united. We mix. There is no religion, there is nothing, and thats what feels good.Ž People wrapped in flags and dressed in crazy hats, and one man spotted totally nude except for the tricolor, marched down the avenue where France displayed its military might a day earlier for Bastille Day. Revelers set off smoke bombs in the national colors „ blue, white and red „ obscuring Napoleons triumphal arch. People climbed atop every newspaper kiosk and bus stop in the area to wave flags and lead the crowds below in cheers. The national anthem, the Marseillaise, rang out, cars honked horns and cherry bombs cracks. A young man sprayed a fire extinguisher on the crowd on a late hot afternoon. Hundreds of police in riot gear were discretely lined up on side streets to monitor revelers. Typically, celebrations in France end up with some broken shop windows and other destruction, and Sunday was no exception. Tear gas was lobbed at one point on the ChampsElysees. About 4,000 police watched over the fan zone „ packed to its 90,000 capacity „ during the match, then moved to the ChampsElysees and neighboring streets. As night fell, The Eiffel Tower flashed 1998-2018 to mark Frances two World Cup titles. The Arc de Triomph was awash in the national colors, lit with the rooster, the faces of the winning team and the words Proud to be Blue,Ž or French. The celebrations were spread across the nation. For all the crazy antics „ and some revelers who got out of control „ a sense of patriotism and unity was almost visceral.With ” ags, pride, French celebrate unifying victoryBy LUKE MEREDITHAssociated PressSILVIS, Ill. „ Michael Kim didnt just win his first PGA Tour event on Sunday. He dominated in a fashion never seen at TPC Deere Run. Kims prizes? A little over a million bucks, a two-year exemption on tour and a trip to the British Open. Kim shot a final-round 66 on Sunday to win the John Deere Classic by a record-setting eight strokes. Kim, who turned 25 on Saturday, finished at 27-under 257 to break Steve Strickers tournament record from 2010 by one shot. Kim also qualified for next weeks Open at Carnoustie „ an unexpected bonus for a player who had missed five of his last six cuts before his breakthrough in the Quad Cities. Kim also made 30 birdies for the week, a season high on tour in 2018. To be able to finish out in style like this, it means a lot,Ž said Kim, who nearly quadrupled his season earnings with a winners share of $1.044 million. To be sitting here with a trophy, Im at a loss for words.Ž Bronson Burgoon, Francesco Molinari, Joel Dahmen and Sam Ryder all finished at 19 under. Kim took all the drama out of the final round with birdies on his first three holes and secured the largest margin of victory during the tournaments stay at the course, which began in 2000. J.P. Hayes (2002) and Vijay Singh (2003) won the event by four strokes. Kim, who had previously had just one top-10 finish in 84 career starts „ a third at the Safeway Open two years ago „ entered play with a five-shot lead. It was the biggest edge for a third-round leader at the John Deere Classic since Strickers six-stroke advantage eight years ago. Kim, a former star at Cal who had struggled to find his footing as a pro, made it obvious from his first swing that he wasnt about to let anyone catch him. Kim knocked in a 13-foot birdie putt on the opening hole, and then holed two more from 15 and 24 feet to give him seven straight birdies dating back to the end of Saturdays round „ and a seven-shot lead. The field might have felt a glimmer of hope when Kim dumped his tee shot into the greenside bunker on the par-3 seventh hole. But Kim got his bunker shot to within 7 feet and made the downhill par putt, and he walked to the next tee with an eight-shot edge. Even the last couple of weeks, I felt like my game was getting there,Ž Kim said. I just felt like I needed just a couple of good starts to the rounds.Ž Kim surpassed Strickers mark with a 21-foot putt on No. 16. The understated Kim finally let loose, holding his hand to his ear in a nod to a cheering gallery. Kims day ended on No. 18 in emotional fashion when he saw his brother, father and mother „ all of whom had made a surprise trip in hopes of seeing him get his first win „ on a video screen. I teared up a little bit on the green,Ž Kim said. To see my parents here ... it made me even more nervous.ŽKim wins John Deere Classic in record-breaking runaway speed in the 52nd minute when play was held up by four protesters who ran onto the field. Russian punk band Pussy Riot later took credit for the incident „ watched from the VIP seats by Putin, whose g overnment once j ailed members of the activist group. Charges were filed against the group Sunday, too. Putin was later on the field to award medals to the players in a ceremony soon drenched in rain and joy. As thunder pealed and lightning cracked, FIFA president Gianni Infantino handed France ca p tain Hu g o Lloris the gold World Cup trophy. Gold confetti stuck to the soaked Les Bleus as they paraded the trophy around the Luzhniki Stadium, a final act of an enthralling tournament in which Croatia reached its first final while powers Brazil, Germany and Argentina went home earl y About 12 minutes after a protester gave Mbappe a double high-five on the field, Mbappe sent a right-footed shot from 25 yards (meters) past goalkeeper Danijel Subasic The goal put France up 4-1, closing the door on Croatia who had been the better team until Mbappe took control.WORLD CUPFrom Page 1
