NEWS WIRE Fire destroys Sebring home SaturdaySEBRING „ The Conerly family was gathered in a local hospital room around the patriarch of the family, Ken Sr., who was gravely ill „ when they got a shocking call Saturday late afternoon. Their home at 1429 Lake Josephine Drive was in ”ames. Ken Conerly Jr.; his son, Kenny; and their pastor Stephen Darley immediately left to investigate and to see if there was anything they could do. There wasnt; they supported each other and watched as the house burned and “re“ghters did their best to douse the ”ames. Lake Josephine Drive was shut down for hours near the “re. Motorists had to detour around the 1400 block to avoid the scene. Neighbor Gary Ingmire was enjoying a leisurely afternoon in front of the television when his son ran into the room and told him the Conerly house was on “re. Ingmire told him to call 911. I dont know how it started but I wish I could have done more,Ž he said. Carolyn Conerly (homeowner) has a cat named Happy. I havent see him outside, so I dont think he made it out. Theres usually a key that I can use. I really wish I could have gotten him out. What a tragedy.Ž Ingmire also said there was a dog but he was being taken care of by someone while Conerly Sr. was in the hospital. Public Safety Of“cer BY KIM LEATHERMANSTAFF WRITERSEBRING „ So far, in budget workshops and town hall meetings, county elected of“cials and employees have cut $360,000 from the 2018-19 “scal year budget. They still need to cut almost another $2 million if they intend to hold at the current 8.55-mil property tax rate for the coming “scal year. County commissioners, despite setting a maximum rate of 9 mils for the coming year, have told county staff they dont want to raise that rate at all. They may have to, though, according to presentations by County Administrator Randy Vosburg and Of“ce of Management and Budget Manager David Nitz. Budget documents suggest they, staff and constitutional of“cers would have to cut almost $500,000 from this years funding requests County looks to trim up to $2.5MBy PHIL ATTINGERSTAFF WRITERLAKE PLACID „ The Lake Placid Town Council has been talking about cell towers over the past couple of months. Council members are making decisions now for the future as more cell tower companies are expressing an interest in placing their towers throughout the town. Several businesses, civic groups, and even a church have been approached. The companies would pay the property owner a monthly user fee. The fees can be as little as $1,200 per month to around $30,000 per year. The Lake Placid Elks have already approved the tower and sent the information Lake Placid wants pretty cell towersBy KIM LEATHERMAN STAFF WRITERSEBRING „ From a family of bootleggers to wearing cowboy boots while singing and painting, Rick Arnold has turned his troublesome childhood into a triumphant career. From scary nights watching his dad beat his mom and shoot holes in the roof, Arnold rose from obscurity to share the stage with Hank Williams Jr. Today, his art has also gathered a following, and it is hanging on the walls of the Sebring Public Library for everyone to enjoy. The paintings depict gorgeous water scenes, old cars, lighthouses and patriotic art. His paintings are done in oil and mixed oil and air brush and will be displayed at the library until the end of August. Adding air brush to oil paintings helps create more dramatic skylines and more natural-looking light, he said. The story of his life and the hope he gained from his love of singing and painting demonstrate that a new beginning is possible for anyone, and the arts are often a form of healing to overcome a chaotic and painful past. Arnold started his life suffering from shame over his home life. His dad, an alcoholic, often beat his mom at night. The next morning Arnold dreaded going to school, thinking that everyone knew what had happened in his home the night before. Even though his parents divorced when he was in second grade, it did not create a stable home life. The turmoil continued. In fact, he moved eight different times before high school. In high school, he stayed with friends and moved from place to place each night. He was disillusioned by school, so he dropped out and headed to Lexington, Kentucky to work on a horse farm. While working on the horse ranch, he realized that he didnt want to be a high school dropout. I wanted to be a song writer and musician,Ž Arnold said. However, I thought my dream was like the other end of the world.Ž Arnold thought it would be impossible to reach it, but he decided he was going to start pursuing his dream by going back to high school. Arnold headed back to his home town of Hazard, Kentucky, but he did not move back home with his mom. Instead, he joined the basketball and team and spent the night with teammates and friends. I would ask my friends what they were eating that night,Ž Arnold said. I would go home with the friend who had the best supper and play my harmonica for them.Ž During high school, Arnold became an all-star basketball player, formed a band with two of his friends and fell in love with the woman who would Painting the townBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITERArtist, musician turns troubled childhood into successful careerSafe Schools will force some increase COUNTY | 7 PHOTO JAYCREW ON REDDIT VIA TWISTEDSIFTER.COMThis cell tower is being disguised to look like a cactus.TOWERS | 7 ALLEN MOODY/STAFFFlames come through the roof of a house located at 1429 Lake Josephine Drive in Sebring on Saturday.FIRE | 7 MELISSA MAIN/STAFFDozens of Rick Arnolds paintings line the walls of Sebring Public Library.

Kagan, an education publishing and professional development training company, will be presenting a cooperative learning workshop on Aug. 1 and Aug. 8 at Woodlawn Elementary School. Superintendent Brenda Longshore said Kagan provides professional development that targets student engagement. The district has used Kagans philosophy and thinking for years. Woodlawn Elementary is doing an update for all of its staff, she said. It is very well known as a best practice across the nation, Longshore said. It covers how students work collaboratively together in pairs or in groups and gets them up and moving. There is a lot of structure to it and it is a very strong process. Woodlawn Elementary Principal Jon Spencer said he and Assistant Principal Jerry Lee Wright believe the key to student achievement is accountability and engagement. Kagan Structures are proven, when done correctly, to offer both, he said. It has been awhile since the true Kagan training has been offered at the school base. The initial cooperative learning training is “ve days, however it is typically presented here for only the “rst two days. Spencer said he and Wright are committed over the next two years to bring all “ve training days to Woodlawn Elementary. What is really nice is that we are able to open the trainings up to any school and teacher in the district who wants to attend,Ž he said. It is an investment that we feel is well worth it because they are strategies that teachers can take back to the classroom the very next day and use with their students.Ž The consulting fee is $4,499 for a maximum of 30 participants from Woodlawn Elementary, with a per person fee of $219 for those outside of Woodlawn unless there is prior approval from Kagan. Kagans publications and workshops are based on a research program conducted by Kagan beginning in 1968. Kagan and his associates discovered that children of all ages in many parts of the world acted quite differently when placed in certain types of situations. He could manipulate the interaction patterns of children and make them more cooperative or more competitive. Cooperative learning strategies aim to boost student engagementBy MARC VALEROSTAFF WRITER MARC VALERO/STAFFA professional development workshop for teachers, focusing on collaborative learning, is scheduled for Aug. 1 and Aug. 8 at Woodlawn Elementary School. LAKE PLACID „ A 20-year-old man was airlifted to a trauma center after being shot multiple times in the leg Saturday in Lake Placid. Highlands County Sheriffs Office deputies were dispatched to a home on Biscayne Avenue NE in Placid Lakes around 1:20 p.m. after the shooting was reported. The victim was first transported by a private vehicle, which met deputies and EMS on U.S. 27, where he was transferred to an ambulance. There were reports of another victim, a 22-year-old man, but he was not located at the scene, Sheriffs Office officials said. Anyone with information is asked to call detective DuWayne Kelly at 863-402-7250 or email detectives@ Anonymous tips that are eligible for a cash reward can be left with Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226TIPS or www.heartlandcrimestoppers.comSO: Man shot multiple times in the legSTAFF REPORT SEBRING „ Bikes allegedly swerving in the middle of the road on Hawthorne Drive caused a deputy to stop and investigate. After making the traf“c stop, the deputy found methamphetamine and marijuana on one of the bikers, the arrest report stated. On Wednesday, Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ce charged Norman Dwight Morris, 34, of Sebring, with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug equipment. According to the arrest report, a deputy noticed the two bikes, which were riding against oncoming traf“c, swerving in the middle of the road, and he pulled up his behind them. The “rst biker, a female, was given a warning before leaving the scene. The deputy stated that he proceeded to talk with Morris, and asked him if he could search the book bag he was carrying over his shoulder. Morris agreed to the search, the arrest report stated. The deputed reported “nding a multi-colored glass pipe with residue and a clear blue glass pipe with residue that “eld tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine. He also found a small Ziploc bag with a green leafy substance inside that “eld tested positive for the presence of marijuana.Police: Mans erratic biking leads to drug arrestBy MELISSA MAINSTAFF WRITER MORRIS SMARTER 5 THINGS That Will Make You 1.

There is a move afoot to do away with plastic straws. Its a small step toward impacting the amount of plastic going into our land“lls and waterways by cutting back on the distribution of single-use straws. To our knowledge, no restaurants are banning straws but at least a few have stopped automatically handing them out and instead are providing them only on request, under the philosophy that every little bit helps. It seems like a reasonable compromise until other options become more “nancially feasible and customers buy in to the Skip the StrawŽ movement. Currently, biodegradable straws are signi“cantly more expensive than plastic ones, which are made from fossil fuel, and reusable metal ones are even pricier. Theyll be better options if their prices become more competitive. Post-meal, straws are worthless. They almost never get recycled because the effort and cost dont justify it. That means they go to a land“ll, to be buried or burned, potentially releasing harmful chemicals into the ground, groundwater or air. Or, they end up in a body of water. Theyre among the most-commonly found items of waste on beaches, and those are the ones that arent consumed by sea life. A turtle was found in 2015 with a straw protruding from a bodily ori“ce, thusly providing an image for the Skip the StrawŽ movement. People seem to have a high level of interest in ensuring the cleanliness of its beaches and the safety of water-dwelling creatures. We applaud restaurants for taking the lead in the effort, especially because its voluntary. We understand why city and county councils and commissions would hesitate to impose regulations requiring them to do anything in this regard. It is something to consider, however. Were under no illusion that by taking a pass on the offer of a straw, area residents will have a major impact on the environment. Even though Americans alone use millions of them a day, plastic straws are a relatively small part by weight of the estimated 8 million tons of plastic that end up in the worlds waterways each year. But every straw that isnt used is a little bit of fossil fuel saved and a little bit of plastic that doesnt end up where it shouldnt be. The biggest downside could be in coffee shops. Starbucks has committed to going straw-free by 2020 and others in the industry can be expected to follow. It will entail switching to sippy-cuptype lids. Theyll use more plastic but its hoped that will make them more likely to be recycled. Starbucks is also trying to reassure disability-rights groups that there will be straws available for people who need them, though it hasnt speci“ed that they will be plastic. Remember paper straws? Of course, for a real difference to be made, skipping the straw will have to progress to skipping the plastic utensils and the plastic or Styrofoam food containers. Itll take time and realistic alternatives. But its doable. People have accepted recycling. Taking reusable bags to the grocery store has become second nature to some. Concerns about drinking from a glass without a straw „ which we all do at home „ will fade. And the world will be a bit better for it. An editorial from the Venice Sun Gondolier.The future in two words: not plasticsNo one is spending money to stop the Meuller probe.Ž People make comments that is not a cost factor; document the cost you speak about. The probe is a $20 million out-of-control entity today; way outside its intended purpose. No collusion, which by the way is not a crime; 25 Russians indicted; great, never going to see them! Oh, by the way, no one was killed in this collusion.Ž The CIA and FBI could have carried out an investigation of Russian meddling; we did not need a special counsel. This special counsel was hired for one reason, and, in violation of (28 C.F.R. 600.1), a three-part analysis for determining whether to appoint a special counsel. First, the Attorney General must determine that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted.Ž It was to investigate a collusion,Ž which is not a crime; supposed to have a confirmed crime to be formed. So, yes, the special counsel was a witch hunt.Ž Eight Benghazi hearings? Yes, investigations take time. Here four people were killed, one a U.S. Ambassador because of the inability of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to do their jobs and give them the security they asked for months in advance of the attacks. None of this would have ever happened if they had not been trying to covertly transfer arms. Are you aware that the mysterious Benghazi Mission and CIA Compound wasnt an embassy or even an official consulate? Hillary was attempting to arm the Syrian rebels with shoulder-mounted SA-7, heat-seeking missile launchers, 20,000 of them; ones that she had given to Libyan rebels. This was the reason Ambassador Stevens was there; he was working with Turkey. Hearings held by our Congress do not cost the taxpayer anything extra. These people are paid to do their job. Meuller is an outside hired agency. There is a difference. No member of Trumps campaign has been charged with the noncrime of collusion. Hillarys email investigations were warranted, along with government employees transmitting classified data on secured systems, including information on Wieners laptop? Hillary, by Comeys own admission, violated U.S. Codes: 798 Disclosure of Classified information 1031 Major Fraud Against the U.S.371 Conspiracy to commit a federal offence 924 Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents 2071 Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally of documents, equipment … 1346 Definition of scheme or artifice to defraudŽ … 1343 Fraud by wi re, radio, or television 1505 Obstruction of proceeding before departments agencies, and committees 1519 Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in federal investigations … 793 Gathering, transmitting, or losing defense information. Many of these offenses are punishable by very large fines and up to 10 years in prison. Any other human being by this time would be serving time behind bars. I carried a top secret/ crypto/need-to-know clearance in the military. If I had violated one of these, I would have served time as the sailor did recently for taking an innocent picture. One last comment: People in this country struggling with health care costs, there is one reason documented, ACA (Obamacare). My own cost went up 158 percent; same for my wife. My sons costs are out of control for his family of four $550 a month premium, $3,000 deductible, per family member, before anything is covered? He is just one example. It was not this way before Obama Care. These are facts. Check them out, they are for real. John Nelson is a Sebring resident and chair of the Highlands Tea Party. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the Highlands News-Sun.Congressional hearings dont cost moreJohn NelsonGUEST COLUMN The other day I was watching a piece on the CBS News about a young man who was turning 18. His only wish was to have a car that had been his dads. It was a wish that might have been hard to fulfill but his mother was determined. The young mans dad, a soldier, had died in Iraq when the teen was less than a year old. His mother set out on her mission and posted pictures of her late husbands car, along with the vehicle identification number. Well guess what? The car was found in Pleasant Grove, Utah and residents there bought it. Through his organization, Fly the Flag, Kyle Fox gathered some skilled folks together and they completely refurbished the car, inside and out, and delivered it to the young man in Texas. You can imagine the rest of the story. I love stories like this where strangers reach out to help others. Heck, I just like stories of people helping people. I remember when I had just become a single mom. I had no idea what I was going to do at Christmas for my children. They were young … 10 and 5 … so they wouldnt have understood if on Christmas morning there wasnt at least something under the tree. Still, it was going to be impossible for me to do anything. I was making two mortgage payments, a truck payment, an RV payment, etc., etc. at the time. We were even spending a lot of evenings at my parents house so they would have something to eat. It wasnt until the child support started a year later that I was finally able to begin to breathe. Early in December I found a sealed envelope sitting on my keyboard. Inside was a crisp $100 bill. I had no idea where it came from; I just knew I was going to be able to buy something to wrap and put under the tree that year. It would be months later when I would find out the giver of that sealed envelope. I will never forget the unexpected generosity and have tried to pay it forward myself. We have had a number of readers who have lent a helping hand to people in the community who we have written about in the past. Whether they were victims of a fire, sinkhole, tornado or whatever, the victims from near and far have been helped by this generous place we all call home. The important thing for us to all do is to remember our neighbors, our co-workers, our families, even those people we may not know real well. Not everyone is as fortunate as we a re. When we reach out to help someone, whether its by giving them some money or just helping them with a project, it makes us feel better. Not to mention what it teaches our children.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 23, 2018 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. When Dr. Ron Sevigny, local optometrist, moved here in 1972, he quickly realized how this small sleepy central Florida town had an unusually rich history with professional baseball. He quickly became known as the local expert on Avon Park baseball and over the years has shared his wealth of knowledge with many local organizations and clubs. What follows is some of that knowledge. In the mid-1920s, Avon Park like most of Florida was in the midst of the Florida Land Boom. In 1926, the Hotel Jacaranda on Main Street had just been completed. Many af”uent northerners would winter at the hotel. During those years, Avon Park was on the move. Many of the streets were paved, sidewalks put in and a city water main completed. Local industry was expanding, including citrus, crate mills, turpentine processors, saw mills and packing houses. Avon Park was growing faster and was more vibrant than any Florida ridge community south of Orlando including Sebring.Ž Around that time, Colonel Charles R. Head moved to Avon Park. He strolled the streets of Avon Park in a white suit and white hat. He was a retired U.S. Army colonel and had served in the Spanish-American War. He was also a long time personal friend of Sam Breadon, then owner of the St. Louis Cardinals.Ž Like today, many professional baseball teams came to central Florida towns for their spring training. Col. Head convinced his friend, Sam, to move his Cards to Avon Park for spring training. In return, Col. Head, a member of the Avon Park City Council at the time, encouraged the city to build a baseball “eld worthy of a professional baseball team. And so in 1925, construction began on what then was known as Cardinal Field and was “nished in 1927 in time for the Cards to hold their spring training here that year.Ž The “eld, built on Winthrop Street, is today known as Head Field, in honor of the colonel. Head Field is a historical jewel. It was designed and built under speci“cations requested and approved by the St. Louis Cardinals. It served as the premiere baseball “eld in central Florida for decades. Every professional baseball team at that time played in Avon Park during spring training. Professional teams, either major league or minor league, continued to play at Head Field until 1952.Ž In the late 1920s things changed. Certain power brokers from Bradenton lured the St. Louis Cardinals to Bradenton starting with the 1930 spring training by promising to pay the owners a certain sum of money. Of course Avon Park did not have the resources to match such an offer. Even though the Cardinals moved to Bradenton in 1930 for their spring training, they still played a few games in Avon Park throughout the 1930s and 1940s.Ž From: Sunday Summer Series 2008 program at the Avon Park Depot Museum and recorded by Walter Nunnallee.

The Florida Times-Union reported that the Flagler County Sheriffs Of“ce found three children between the ages of four months and four years old living in “lth and covered with bug bites. One child had broken bones. The children live in a town located in northeast Florida. The investigation started after a four-month old child with multiple fractures and bites was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Authorities say the home where the children lived was so severely infested that investigators saw hundreds of cockroaches crawling on the furniture as well as the ”oors, walls and ceilings. The three adults were booked into jail on Friday. Records do not show if they have attorneys.Judge retires after handling notorious juvenile casesMIAMI (AP) „ For the past three years, Judge Cindy Lederman has walked by a half-dozen statues of playful bear cubs every day on her way up to her high-ceilinged, top-”oor of“ce looking out toward Miamis waterfront. On a shelf behind her desk, below rows of glass awards and family photos, sit two teddy bears. In six months, shell take them with her and walk past the statues for the last time. The stuffed bears are from a program the retiring judge helped start 20 years ago to give every child who came to juvenile court a teddy bear. The building, Miami-Dade Countys three-year-old childrens courthouse, and its bear statutes „ meant to be played with by those same unlucky children who “nd themselves needing court hearings „ were a project she began working on with colleagues more than a decade ago to replace Miami-Dades previous and notoriously horrible childrens courthouse. Ledermans legacy stretches far beyond bears. During her 25-year tenure as a juvenile court judge, including a decade as the courts top judge, shes ruled in some of the most important cases to pass through, including that of 5-year-old Rilya Wilson, a child lost and apparently killed, and her decision to strike down the states gay adoption ban. Lederman has also led a movement to introduce science into the courtroom. Collaborating with child development experts, she transformed the Miami-Dade childrens court. Ledermans reforms spread around the state and the model she built has been replicated across the country. She has seen thousands of children in her courtroom, making dif“cult decisions about foster care, adoption and family reuni“cation. Throughout the decades, she has been a strong advocate for the best, most scienti“c option in deciding the future of a child. She seemed to put her life into it,Ž said retired Judge Seymour Gelber, a decades-long childrens court judge and mentor of Ledermans from her early days on the court. (The courthouse was named for him and another former judge, the late William Gladstone.) She was one of the great things that happened to the juvenile court.Ž In court, Lederman moves quickly, conducting her busy courtroom like an orchestra. Childrens court can be chaotic, with case workers from child welfare agencies, lawyers, guardians, parents and relatives moving in and out and speaking out of turn. Lederman stands unfazed behind her bench with the easy authority of experience, making decisive rulings. On one Monday afternoon, she heard 10 cases in just over an hour. She oversaw an inmate signing away the rights to his three children, shouted down an irate grandfather, reprimanded a child welfare agency for not putting a 3-year-old with developmental delays into treatment quickly enough, told a mother she was responsible for coordinating $7,000 worth of dental work for her children, refused to rule in two cases without more information on related child abuse investigations and pulled over a school bus by calling the driver from the courtroom to ask how his children were doing. It was a light day. When Lederman arrived at the juvenile court in 1994, the states child welfare system was a mess. It was almost like we were engaging in criminal behavior every day, the way we were treating these children,Ž she said. Lederman got to work. The junior judge had already made waves in county criminal court when she helped establish a separate domestic violence court. Her efforts got her labeled an agitatorŽ by a superior and earned her an invite to sit on a research committee at the National Academy of Sciences. I went to Washington and my whole world „ my whole professional, legal world „ completely changed,Ž she said. Lederman found herself on a committee with some of the nations top child psychology researchers. She began to learn about evidence-based practice, and what science said was best for children. She had been a judge for seven years and on the childrens court for one. I thought every day I was helping people,Ž she said, still haunted by those early decisions. I thought every program I sent a child or parent to was helping them. It never occurred to me that that program could be hurting them.Ž Lederman began a campaign to learn more and bring child welfare science into the courtroom, in what she calls the marriage of science and law. She spent the next decade serving on panels, committees and research projects with the National Academy of Sciences, integrating what she learned into her court and starting local research partnerships that continue to this day.

County commissioners have adopted a new policy to keep expense increases within the rate of revenue increases. For the coming “scal year, property values have risen enough to bring in 1.97 percent more revenue. Funding requests, however, came in at 3.78 percent, a total of $2.52 million above the revenue increase. To pay for them all would take another 0.541 mils, putting the “nal rate just under 9.1 mils. County commissioners set the maximum millage rate below that, and by law, they cant exceed it. They will have to cut those requests by at least $465,966 „ the amount of money 0.1 mil will bring in the coming “scal year. While commissioners have told staff they dont want to increase taxes at all „ to keep them at 8.55 mils „ Vosburg said Thursday at the second of two nighttime town hall meetings that the Safe Schools mandate for of“cers at every school, by itself, could force some amount of local property tax increase. Were working to get that millage increase down,Ž Vosburg said Thursday. Budget wrangling started last Tuesday morning with setting of the millage rate at the Highlands County board of County Commission regular meeting and a budget workshop that afternoon. It was followed then by nighttime town hall meetings Tuesday and Thursday. The next town hall meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday at Lake Placid Town Hall, 311 W. Interlake Blvd. in Lake Placid. Another budget workshop, to make cuts, is set for 5:30 p.m. July 30 at the Government Center, 600 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring. The proposed budget, before cuts, was just under $143 million, up $6.6 million from the 2017-18 budget of just over $136 million. After deducting state and federal mandates, constitutional of“cers budgets, contributions to outside agencies and reserves for contingency, Vosburg said the bulk of what county commissioners could change „ their departments „ totals less than $20 million. Vosburg said county staff has already successfully balanced the Capital Financial Strategy „ the plan for capital improvements „ for the next “ve years by making substantial cuts. He said this is the “rst time since he started working for the county „ April 22, 2013 „ that the county has balanced more than two years of that plan. Tuesday afternoon, commissioners heard from representatives of outside agencies receiving funds from the county. Highlands County Sheriff Paul Blackman and Highlands County Superintendent of Schools Brenda Longshore spoke on school resource of“cers. Blackman told commissioners he had a commitment from the Avon Park City Council to pay $100,000 into that program. That and other cuts he made would lower the countys contribution from $422,192 to approximately $290,000, Vosburg said. On Thursday night, Blackman asked the Lake Placid Town Council to pay $75,000 in the program, but the town council has refused that amount. Instead, they debated whether to give $25,000-$35,000 as either a cash or in-kind contribution. The Lake Placid council has not yet made a decision on the matter. Commissioner Don Elwell led discussion Tuesday night at the town hall meeting at South Florida State College. As with his usual town meetings, Elwell served pizza and soft drinks beforehand, and the event drew approximately 65 residents. Thursdays town hall meeting, at the Government Center in Sebring, had no food and drew only six residents, including the spouse of a department head and a local news reporter. Two of Thursdays town hall attendees had attended the Tuesday night town hall.COUNTYFROM PAGE 1 to the state level where it awaits the “nal measurements and “nancials from the tower company. According to Elk John Holbrook, who is also the towns mayor, the company told the Elks that they had to get the current cell towers off the Tower of Happiness, the Lake Placid icon. The companys employees told the Elks it was because the Tower of Happiness was rumored to be coming down. Then-County Planner Susan BuChans addressed the Council at the June 11 regular meeting. She gave a brief history of the Telecommunication Act. She also told Council members the land areas where the towers can go. There are currently two towers „ one at 11 Hickory Ave., at an elevation of 130 feet „ and 100 Magnolia Ave., at 170 feet. BuChans pointed out the towers could go on top of the existing water towers and how instructions on removal during maintenance, such as painting, should be put into a contract. The towers do not have to be the relatively unattractive metal towers. They make the gigantic antennas replicate modern art sculptures, bell towers and even very tall trees. The town is leaning towards the decorative towers,Ž Holbrook said. Theyre pretty OK with them, if they are aesthetically pleasing.Ž Councilman Ray Royce brought the subject of towers in the July 9 meeting. He said the town would soon be asked for special exemptions for towers. Royce wanted to ensure that Council had a say in the approval process. When we get into downtown, Im not real keen on having one of those big tri-towers,Ž he said. Sebring has more and more of them, some of them that look like giant pine trees. If we are not going to put them on our utilities, then someones going to put the towers up. I hope we have the ability to either require them „ during their application to volunteer to use what I am going to very loosely call a decorative-type tower. Because, if you go up to Sebring and you look up toward Harder Hall, other than the worlds tallest tree, it doesnt look bad. It looks a hell of a lot better than the steel ones,Ž he added.TOWERSFROM PAGE 1 Marc Bashoor con“rmed the cat was found dead in the home.

After graduation, Arnolds band went to Miami and played on the beaches for a solid year. We were all hillbillies playing for a small amount of money,Ž he said. When we decided we werent going anywhere, I decided to give Nashville a try,Ž he said. I went to Nashville to meet Woody Mills, who had connections with Mel Tillis, Dr. Hook and other big name musicians. We met and I played 15-20 songs for Mills,Ž he said. After hearing him sing, Mills offered to let him stay in his home. I wrote songs and played with Mel Tillis,Ž Arnold said. However, he still had not begun earning a large enough salary to support himself. The realization that he would need to start making money to support his music career hit him when he was on his honeymoon with Robin. I was always interested in art, and I saw someone airbrushing when we went to Myrtle Beach on our honeymoon,Ž Arnold said. I decided to do airbrushing, and after three months Robin set me up a job with Opryland Theme Park for the summer,Ž he said. With long lines of people at Opryland, I learned to airbrush fast in order to make money.Ž Eventually Robin found a way to apply to be a vendor at Walmart stores, so he traveled throughout neighboring states selling airbrushed items. While his airbrushing helped pay his living expenses, he continued working on his music career. The pinnacle of his music career was when he wrote Hog Wild,Ž and Hank Williams Jr. decided to sing it and use it as the title cut for his album. The song became an instant success and catapulted Arnolds career. He even joined Hank Williams Jr. and played on the stage during one of his performances. After Arnold earned notoriety with the song, a school teacher from Kentucky asked him to come and prepare a motivational program at the school. She knew about my rough upbringing and she wanted me to speak with the kids,Ž Arnold said. Everyone was doing motivational programs, and I wanted to do something a little different,Ž he said. I titled my program Follow Your Dreams,Ž and I wrote Paint a Picture.Ž I sang this while painting a 30-inch-by-40inchŽ airbrush picture in just “ve minutes. I told the kids that they could be anything they wanted to be and it didnt matter who their parents were or how much money they had,Ž he said. You are getting old enough to make your own decisions. I went to Nashville and followed my dreams. Its your choice to do what you want to do. Your background doesnt matter. Follow your dreams. While I was doing the performances, I would look out at the audience, and I could see which kids had it even worse at home than I did,Ž he said. After the program, he spoke to those students and offered them hope for a brighter future. Arnold performed this motivational program in Kentucky and in every school in Collier County. When funding for the school programs was cut, he began doing corporate programs. However, instead of telling about how to reach your dreams, he tells funny stories and makes the audience laugh. He still airbrushes pictures in “ve minutes while singing, but he gears the stories and the program towards the preferences of each audience. Although laughter is a hallmark of his commercial programs, his life was “lled with intense sadness a few years ago. Within a three-year period, his mom died, followed by his sister, his two brothers, a nephew and his dog. He turned to oil painting to help him deal with his grief. Painting requires concentration and takes his mind off his problems. I told Robin that I needed something to slow me down, and oil painting has helped,Ž he said. Its a slow process, not like airbrushing, and its like relaxation therapy.Ž I have a new song that I sing for the adult programs,Ž Arnold said. The lyrics go like this, When Im down, down, down, I paint the town.ŽPAINTINGFROM PAGE 1 adno=3582723


A8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 23, 2018 ORLANDO „ Floridas busiest airport is becoming the “rst in the nation to require a face scan of passengers on all arriving and departing international ”ights, including U.S. citizens, according to of“cials there. The expected announcement Thursday at Orlando International Airport alarms some privacy advocates who say there are no formal rules in place for handling data gleaned from the scans, nor formal guidelines on what should happen if a passenger is wrongly prevented from boarding. Airports in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and Washington already use face scans for some departing international ”ights, but they dont involve all international travelers at the airports like the programs expansion in Orlando would. The image from the face scan is compared to a Department of Homeland Security biometric database that has images of people who should be on the ”ight, in order to verify the travelers identity. U.S. citizens at these airports can opt out, but the agency doesnt seem to be doing an adequate job letting Americans know they can opt out,Ž said Harrison Rudolph, an associate at the Center on Privacy & Technology at the Georgetown University Law Center. U.S. citizens at the Orlando airport will be able to opt out just like at the other airports if they dont want to provide their photograph, Jennifer Gabris, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in an email. However, a notice about a possible rule change for the program states that U.S. citizens may be required to provide photographs upon entering or departing the United States.Ž The Orlando announcement marks a step up in the scope of the face scan program, Rudolph said. Were not talking about one gate,Ž he said. Were talking about every international departure gate, which is a huge expansion of the number of people who will be scanned. Errors tend to go up as uses go up.Ž Orlando International Airport had about 6 million international passengers in the past year. Rudolph said he has concerns about the face scans accuracy, since some research shows they are less accurate with racial minorities, women and children. Researchers say this is because photos used to train the face-scanning software underrepresent minorities, women and young people. Two U.S. senators last month sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security, which is home to the border protection agency, urging that formal rules be implemented before the program is expanded. It will also ensure a full vetting of this potentially sweeping program that could impact every American leaving the country by airport,Ž said the letter from U.S. Sen.

Mike Lee, R-Utah.Face scans for international travelers at Florida airportBy MIKE SCHNEIDERTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) „ Former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin was noticeably absent from a gala kicking off a yearlong celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the “rst moon landing, even though his nonpro“t space education foundation is a sponsor and he typically is the star attraction. The black-tie Apollo Celebration Gala held under a Saturn V rocket at the Kennedy Space Center on Saturday evening featured a panel discussion by astronauts, an awards ceremony and an auction of space memorabilia. Hundreds of people attended the sold-out event, including British physicist Brian Cox, who presented Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson with the ShareSpace Foundations Innovation award. Branson, whose company is developing a new generation of commercial spacecraft, said in a recorded video that the Apollo missions in”uenced his generation. Space is still hard, really hard. It still really matters,Ž Branson said. There would be no Virgin Galactic, no Virgin Orbit and no spaceship company had it not been for Apollo astronauts and the thousands of talented people who made their mission possible.Ž Dr. Carolyn Williams of the nonpro“t From One Hand To AnOTHER received the foundations Education award, and former Johnson Space Center director Gerry Grif“n, a ”ight director for all of the crewed Apollo missions, was honored with the Pioneer award. Its very humbling, it kind of came out of the blue,Ž Grif“n said. It is so neat to know that weve passed the torch that will let this next generation take us to this next step.Ž That next step, Grif“n said, is a return of Americans to the Moon and, eventually, Mars „ something former Apollo astronauts Walt Cunningham, Harrison Schmitt, Rusty Schweickart and Tom Stafford discussed during a conversation with Cox. Were sort of going through a second door here. The door isnt all the way open „ we havent gone all the way through it „ but its cracked open,Ž Schweickart, who ”ew as the lunar module pilot on Apollo 9, told The Associated Press. Space is going to be much less expensive to go to, and thats going to open up not just opportunities for people to ”y, but because of the decreased cost, real opportunities for innovators to generate new ideas and to do things that have never been done before.Ž Aldrins ShareSpace Foundation is one of the sponsors of the annual gala, which raises money for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics „ or STEAM education „ and Astronaut Scholarship Foundation scholarships. Renowned Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto donated artwork from his Buzz Aldrin Space SeriesŽ for the auction, which also included a behindthe-scenes tour of Virgin Galactic in California and autographed space memorabilia. Tickets for the event ranged from $750 to $2,500 per person. The former astronauts expected absence comes just a month after he sued two of his adult children and a former business manager, accusing them of misusing his credit cards, transferring money from an account and slandering him by saying he has dementia. Only weeks before the lawsuit, Andrew and Jan Aldrin “led a petition claiming their 88-year-old father was suffering from memory loss, delusions, paranoia and confusion. Andrew and Jan Aldrin, as well as business manager Christina Korp, are on the foundations board and attended the gala. Aldrins oldest son, James, isnt involved in the legal “ght. Andrew Aldrin acknowledged his fathers absence during the gala. Were sorry dad cant be here, I know some of you are disappointed,Ž Aldrin said. Ultimately, what were about is creating the “rst generation of Martians.Ž Buzz Aldrin, along with Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, was part of the Apollo 11 mission which landed the “rst two humans on the moon on July 20, 1969.Gala opens countdown to 50th anniversary of 1st moon landingBy ALEX SANZ and MIKE SCHNEIDERASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOFormer Johnson Space Center Director Gerry Grin, left, a ight director for all of the crewed Apollo missions, sits next to Apollo astronauts Harrison Schmitt, Rusty Schweickart, Walt Cunningham and Tom Staord, from second from left, during a panel discussion at the Apollo Celebration Gala at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral Satur day.

After two solid, trouble-free days and even with a 6-pound, 2-ounce lead going into the “nal day, Bethel Universitys Garrett Enders and Cody Huff felt they left the door open when Campbellsville University pulled a miracle from the stingy, sinfully hot waters of Tenkiller „ the biggest bag of the contest. The Tahlequah crowd on the Northeastern State University campus erupted in screams as Campbellsvilles Bradley Dunagan and Nick Ratliff dragged a big green 6-pound anchor across the stage and posted 18 pounds, 2 ounces to climb from “fth place to snatch the hot seat away from West Virginia Universitys Nolan Minor and Casey Lanier, who posted 15-4 of their own on the “nal day.

After seeing its “verace podium streak in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship come to an end two weeks ago, the No. 48 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 of Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow powered to the GT Daytona (GTD) class win in Saturdays Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. While “ve manufacturers took their turn atop the leaderboard throughout the race, the No. 48 Lamborghini proved to be the strongest of the day as they led the “nal 63 laps of the two-hour, 40-minute race. By the races end, however, six different manufacturers made up the top six “nishers. It was a great race,Ž said Snow. Anytime you end up on the podium, its good, and when you win, it cant get any better. Bryan gave me the car in a position where there was nobody around, so I just sat there and did laps. Thats a lot of pressure when youre handed the car like that. You do everything you can to keep the car there and stay ahead. No matter how big of a gap you have to the people behind you, its never enough. Youre always nervous.Ž The victory is the second of 2018 for Paul Miller Racing, which is based two hours down the road from Lime Rock in Parsippany, New Jersey.

The No. 912 Porsche placed third. The winning pass came when Magnussen tried to make a move on a GT Daytona (GTD) car in Turn 7. Magnussen cleared the car but ran wide, allowing Hand to slip by. It was a surprising turn of events as Magnussen and co-driver Antonio Garcia were strong all weekend, starting on the pole and combining to lead 150 of the races 178 laps. I think today we capitalized on some opportunities, some guys made mistakes and we were right there to take advantage of it,Ž said Hand. Winning races is all about that, winning championships is all about winning races. I hope everybody enjoyed the race today.

Enders and Huff were the only anglers to limit both of the “rst two days, and they did it quickly each morning, and without error. Campbellsvilles Dunagan and Ratliff worked spoons around marinas, but worked so hard at it they had to make a run to the nearest Bass Pro Shops, in Broken Arrow, to restock after Day 2. We just started looking for spider webs, pitching where nobody else had been,Ž Ratliff said. We lost like 15 spoons today.Ž Their two best lures were a 4-inch Strike King Sexy Spoon and a 3.75inch Talon Custom Lures Lake Fork Flutter Spoon. Its a little heavier on a shorter frame so you can slide it back in there,Ž Ratliff said.

CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDE SECTION B Monday, July 23, 2018 Dear PharmacistSUZY COHEN Lions mane mushroom, scienti“cally known as Hericium erinaceus, is a hairy-looking mushroom with a name that conjures up visions from the wild kingdom. It literally looks like a white lions mane! Lions mane has some interesting bene“cial effects on your body. It contains many active ingredients, among them beta-glucan and some antioxidants. You can take it in supplemental form, or you can cook with it, like you do Portobellos! Lions mane helps your brain and keeps you sane. It can help to boost cognitive performance, improve mood, and protect neurons from damage. But how can a shroom protect your mind? Its a valid question, one that scientists have wondered too. Studies prove that compounds in Lions mane increase Nerve Growth Factor, or NGF. This is a critical protein in your nervous system. It plays a variety of roles actually, including the most important which is to grow new brain cells. Lions mane increases NGF and since you cant supplement directly with NGF, Lions Mane could be a consideration. Its a nootrope, and nootropes support brain function, memory, focus and learning. This next part is fascinating. Lions mane can suppress certain pro-in”ammatory cytokines involved in neurolgical diseases. Given that excessive in”ammation is believed to be involved in many different disease processes, including some of the most common brain diseases (from depression to Alzheimers disease), this effect can help lions mane to protect the brain. Its also been shown to increase levels of acetylcholine, your memory molecule. There was a great study that suggests that Lions mane can help reduce symptoms of both anxiety and depression after just four weeks. Unlike traditional SSRIs and other anti-depressants or psychoactive drugs, there is no risk of addiction, tolerance withdrawal or receptor down-regulation. Side effects are minimal, unless you have allergies to the mushroom. In people with mild cognitive impairment (the precursor to full-blown dementia), taking Lions Mane signi“cantly improved cognitive performance, with the positive bene“ts increasing over the duration of the 16-week trial. More research is needed, and being conducted. Im not suggesting that we throw away important prescribed pills or disregard your physicians orders over this body of research. But of course, it is enticing, and exciting to think a shroom could have this much power on brain-boosting chemicals. It certainly gets my attention. You can cook with it, or take it in supplemental forms. I have more information about this, a longer version of this article, as well as recipes.

HEART | 10 In a perfect world, chemicals would not be needed to produce any foods, all of which would be made in sustainable conditions and from all-natural ingredients. But even the most eco-conscious foodie routinely faces dif“cult decisions at the grocery store. The Organic Trade Association says organic food is the fastest-growing sector of the American food industry, and organic food now accounts for more than 5 percent of total food sales. While many people understand the bene“ts to consuming organic produce, such foods tend to cost more, compromising shoppers budgets as a result. Making smart choices and getting the facts about organic food can help consumers make informed decisions.Smarter organic choices According to the food and health resource the Environmental Working Group, certain fruits and vegetables are more likely to feature residual pesticides than others. They dub these foods the Dirty Dozen,Ž which include strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery, potatoes, and sweet bell peppers. Shoppers who cannot afford strictly organic foods can opt for non-organic items that are less likely to contain residual pesticides.Fearing antibiotics Many people are concerned about milk, meat and poultry treated with antibiotics. Organic foods are antibiotic-free. The Food and Drug Administration has strict guidelines in place to phase out the use of antibiotics in food animals to enhance growth or improve feed ef“ciency. Theyre also requiring farmers to select strains of microbials that are less medically important to humans who would need them to treat disease. This means that conventional milk, meat and poultry may contain less antibiotics than consumers know. Also, according to the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, poultry are not given growth hormones, so theres little need to pay more for hormone-free.Organic and pesticides To be organic,Ž foods produced and sold in the United States and Canada must be shown to conserve natural resources and be devoid of GMOs, among other requirements.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 23, 2018 Our brain gets signals from many different parts of our bodies. We have two arms, two legs, two feet, two hands and several other body parts that come in twos. We often have different vision in each of our individual eyes. The brain has to take what it is receiving from each eye and make one picture. Sometimes you may only have one eye that you can see with. Think about that for a minute. To get the whole picture you have to turn your head. You have to be more diligent in attempting to see the car coming down the street if it is on your blind side. You have to work a little harder. With hearing it is the same thing, sort of. When the brain only gets a audio signal from one side of the brain there are several challenges that have to be dealt with. When a person has hearing in just one ear it is called single-sided deafnessŽ or unilateral hearing loss.Ž These people will have to overcome many obstacles on a daily basis. The brain uses the signal from both sides to localize sounds. First of all, the actual direction of sound. The brain uses cues to determine the direction that sound is coming from. If everything comes in on one side of the head then the brain loses its ability to pinpoint the direction. While this can be a problem, its also a safety concern. Walking down the street becomes a hazard simply because you dont hear the car pulling up beside you on the dead side.Ž Not only does a person with unilateral hearing loss lose the ability to localize sounds, they also have more dif“culty focusing on a speci“c speaker. The brain uses signals from both sides to pay attention to speci“c tasks. If the person is in a noisy restaurant then the ability for the brain to focus on speech and localize sounds is dif“cult for the brain to do both from just one point of origin. Our brain has the ability to multi-task.Ž The ears are a critical component as to how well we can multi-task. Two healthy ears provide the best focus power and the best identi“cation of sounds easily for the brain. If that signal is only coming from one side of the head then the brain has to work harder to help the good ear localize sounds. While “rst the brain is looking to localize sounds, it then tries to understand the speech signal that it is receiving. If there is a lot of background noise or just several people talking at once then many speech cues will be missed. Sound coming in on both sides also give us the feeling of a balanced volume. With single-sided deafness you may hear things as loud but the brain has to interpret that all from one side. This can often cause discomfort. When a person only hears on one side of their head there is a situation that takes place called Head Shadow Effect.Ž Low frequency sounds have long wavelengths that can bend around your head. Because they are strong sounds it is possible that the person may even hear the sound perfectly normal, even if they are pointed in the wrong direction. However, high frequency sounds have shorter wavelengths and therefore those sounds can not cross at the proper intensity to the better ear. The high frequencies give us the consonants and most of our speech understanding. If there is any type of background noise, the speech signal will be greatly diminished. Hearing instruments are now available that can wirelessly transmit the sounds from the dead ear sideŽ to the better ear. These systems are called CROS Hearing systems. CROS means Contralateral Routing of Signal. We are meant to hear in a 360-degree pattern. It simply makes our life easier. Clearer. If you have a spouse, friend, or signi“cant other that struggles with single sided deafness try and be patient of their unique situation. Sitting on their good earŽ will help. Minimize any background noise possible. Look at them when you are talking to them. The visual component is huge for this type of hearing loss. Get the best hearing you can. You only life once. ToHearBetterIsToLiveBetter!!Living with single-sided deafness ColumnistNAME How often do we wake up for our day, already looking forward to coming home to our beds again? Stressed, tired, knowing were not taking care of ourselves as well as we should, we continue with our usual routine wishing we felt better. Stress hormones are natural, however, too much stress takes a toll on all of us. Thankfully, proper recovery from traumatic events and daily wear and tear can be achieved in just a few simple ways. Through these essentials for stress management, we can allow our bodies the rest it needs to perform and recuperate. A phrase I once heard that resonated with me is Massage is a luxury you cant afford to miss.Ž Getting a massage is an excellent way to relieve stress both physically and mentally. Our muscles are loosened up, painful knots are worked out, and our bones realign to allow more efficient blood flow to your muscles, heart and brain. Your aches and pains are soothed and melt away, and your brain receives some much needed fresh oxygen. You could even practice some basic massage techniques on yourself at home. The benefits to your mind and body are enumerable. Arguably the most beneficial essential to our well-being would be sleep. Something seemingly so simple is so easily neglected by most of us. Were overworked, overstressed, and fill our free time with social media, TV shows or going out. Rather than allowing ourselves the time to rest, we continue stimulating our minds and bodies. Without sleep, we cant process the events of the day or our emotions, we dont allow cell turnover, or the transition that occurs between short and long term memory. We become sluggish, forgetful, and irritable. With sleep, however, we can allow ourselves to decompress from our stressors. Were more prepared to handle a new day after a full night of restful sleep and REM cycles. If you dont have time for a nap, another way to relax from a difficult day is through meditation. The steps to meditate are easy, though like most things, it takes practice to reap all of the benefits. Youll need to get comfortable. If any part of your body isnt completely comfortable, mindfully move it. Sit up tall, shoulders back to open those airways, and allow your hands to rest on your lap in whatever position feels the best for you. Now clothes your eyes and settle in. Once youve relaxed into your new position, focus on deep breathing. Practice counting your breaths, and if you feel your mind wander, bring your focus back to your breathing and begin counting again. Keep a little timer or alarm on you so that you can be alerted of when youve reached 3-5 minutes to begin with. Doing this a few times a day can reduce stress and fortify you for the rest of your day. Your health and well being is a priority. Theres no point in working as hard as we do if the stress of it deteriorates us so we cant enjoy what were working so hard to achieve. Try to incorporate one or two of these essentials into your daily routine, and feel the difference it makes in your life.

Pathology reports are documents that contain diagnoses after doctors have examined cells and tissues under a microscope. According to the National Cancer Institute, pathology reports, which play an important role in diagnosing and treating cancer, also may contain information regarding the size, shape and appearance of a specimen as it looks to the naked eye. People who are diagnosed with breast cancer may receive pathology reports that indicate the presence of tumor necrosis. According to the nonpro“t organization, the presence of tumor necrosis means that dead breast cancer cells were found within the tissue sample. Tumor necrosis, though it is often limited to a small area within the tissue sample, suggests a patient is battling an aggressive form of breast cancer. Source: MCCDid you know?

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 23, 2018 Energy is timeless and inexhaustible. Old forms give way to new, emerging from the invisible. The mind is a creative life force that manifests new ideas and form in the body. Muscle memory is created from a proceduralŽ practice that may have positive or negative results with a slow moving focus of repetition that eventually takes shape in the body. Muscle memory is important to recognize as a constructive or destructive energy shaped though the awareness or lack of awareness in the mind. Lets de“ne muscle memory as it is developed. Muscle memory can work as a positive procedural practice or negative one; the memory is still recorded. If you practice a Yoga pose repeatedly incorrectly, it may pose a postural concern such as shoulder slump when sitting or standing, and your body will with repetition, hold that indwelling memory. It is all part of procedural memoryŽ and the brain will instruct the muscles to perform as told. Think of learning to drive a stick shift car. The “rst several times when you are learning the coordination of the gears, you have to consciously think of every move until it is recorded as a regular procedural action. After a period of time, you dont have to consciously think how to change gears as your muscle memory takes over. This procedural action occurs in all of our life activity from sports to playing the piano. Learning at “rst takes concentration until the muscles take over from what the mind has instructed and procedural repetition occurs. In a pro-active procedure or positive recording into muscle memory when learning something new, go slow and concentrate on small details. Be sure that the new process is accurately being performed. You may have learned a speci“c Yoga posture wrongly executed that is detrimental to the skeletal or physical body, it takes a period of concentration and the establishment of a new practice to break the old way. Thus, start by learning a new procedural action in small, incremental steps. Research what you are attempting as a new action to make sure you are correctly instructing the muscles to perform a bene“cial Yoga pose, as it will be recorded. We do pay for our mistakes but we can prevent this action by reviewing our form, checking with a Yoga instructor who can evaluate our poses for the most bene“t to our individual body. This is what Yoga is all about. If you rush into postures incorrectly you may initiate an injury and it will continue to bring pain every time you do the posture. Instead of healing your body, you may be in”icting a longterm injury. The best way to learn Yoga is under the guidance of a well-informed and practiced instructor where you can receive accurate feedback for the most health bene“ts to you. If participating in a new sport, new combinations of movement are learned. Muscle memory that is involved in strength training use both motor learning and mental concentration. The bene“t of muscle memory is that strength can increase with endurance practice, thus, choose to work under a prudent instructor and go for it! Enjoy creating the new you every day!Creating muscle memory kind „ of the right kindYOGA FOR LIFEBY NANCY DALE COURTESY PHOTOYoga teacher Nancy Dale shows the extended right angleŽ pose. WASHINGTON „ The growing use of anti-anxiety pills reminds some doctors of the early days of the opioid crisis. Considered relatively safe and non-addictive by the general public and many doctors, Xanax, Valium, Ativan and Klonopin have been prescribed to millions of Americans for decades to calm jittery nerves and promote a good nights sleep. But the number of people taking the sedatives and the average length of time theyre taking them have shot up since the 1990s, when doctors also started liberally prescribing opioid painkillers. As a result, some state and federal of“cials are now warning that excessive prescribing of a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines or benzosŽ is putting more people at risk of dependence on the pills and is exacerbating the fatal overdose toll of painkillers and heroin. Some local governments are beginning to restrict benzo prescriptions. When taken in combination with painkillers or illicit narcotics, benzodiazepines can increase the likelihood of a fatal overdose as much as tenfold, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. On their own, the medications can cause debilitating withdrawal symptoms that last for months or years. Public health of“cials also warn that people who abruptly stop taking benzodiazepines risk seizures or even death. With heightened public awareness of the nations opioid epidemic, some state and local of“cials are insisting that these anti-anxiety medications start sharing some of the scrutiny. We have this whole infrastructure set up now to prevent overprescribing of opioids and address the need for addiction treatment,Ž said Dr. Anna Lembke, a researcher and addiction specialist at Stanford University. We need to start making benzos part of that.Ž What were seeing is just like what happened with opioids in the 1990s,Ž she said. It really does begin with overprescribing. Liberal therapeutic use of drugs in a medical setting tends to normalize their use. People start to think theyre safe and, because they make them feel good, it doesnt matter where they get them or how many they use.Ž The number of adults “lling a benzodiazepine prescription increased by two-thirds between 1996 and 2013, from 8 million to nearly 14 million, according to a review of market data by Lembke and others in the New England Journal of Medicine. Despite the known dangers of co-prescribing painkillers and anti-anxiety medications, the rate of combined prescriptions nearly doubled between 2001 and 2013. Since then, prescriptions for benzodiazepines may have leveled off or declined slightly, according to recent data from a market research “rm that tracks prescription drug sales, the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science. At the same time, opioid prescribing has dropped by more than a “fth. Still, Lembke said, the level of prescribing is much higher than it was in the mid-1990s and benzo dependence appears to be rising based on her own clinical observations. First marketed in the early 1960s, benzodiazepines have been cyclically abused throughout their history. Whats notable now, Lembke said, is that overuse of benzos is coinciding with overuse of opioids. But a newly formed group of researchers and pharmacologists, the International Task Force on Benzodiazepines, wrote in an editorial that recent negative publicity has made it dif“cult for many doctors around the world to prescribe medications they consider essential. Some scienti“c articles achieved a common goal that negative propaganda frequently reaches: they aroused suspicion of benzodiazepines and suggested dif“culties in using them, while overlooking their bene“ts,Ž the pharmacologists said. (Three of the 17 co-authors reported having consulted for or received support from drug companies.) Psychiatrists, including Lembke, agree that relatively inexpensive benzodiazepines can be effective at relieving acute cases of anxiety and sleeplessness. Physicians agree that benzos should not be used long term to solve psychiatric problems. Research indicates that use of the drugs for more than a few weeks can cause tolerance, including withdrawal symptoms between doses, and physical and psychological dependence. To raise awareness of benzodiazepines dangers, Hawaii, Pennsylvania and New York City have issued prescribing guidelines that limit the duration of Xanax, Valium and other benzo prescriptions, similar to many state guidelines for opioids. In addition, the Massachusetts Legislature this month passed a wide-ranging opioid bill that included benzodiazepines as a class of restricted drugs. Nationwide, most states require doctors and pharmacists to track opioid prescribing through online databases that monitor patients who receive them and doctors who prescribe them. Benzodiazepines are not included in half of the states, according to an analysis of state laws by The Pew Charitable Trusts, which also supports Stateline. As prescriptions for benzodiazepines have grown since the late 1990s, so have deaths, according to a study at Monte“ore Medical Center in New York. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines quadrupled from 2002 to 2015. New highly potent forms of benzodiazepines that are illicitly traded are also causing overdose deaths, addiction doctors say. Adding to the dangers, the Drug Enforcement Administration has reported that the deadly synthetic drug fentanyl has been found in counterfeit forms of Xanax. Xanax and Valium were involved in more than 30 percent of opioid overdose deaths between 2010 and 2014, far more than cocaine and methamphetamines, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In some parts of the country, the prevalence of Xanax in drug overdose autopsy reports was even higher. Xanax for the past several years has been found in more overdose autopsies in Kentucky than any speci“c opioid, according to Dr. Kelly Clark, president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and an addiction doctor who lives in the state. In fact, community mental health centers in Louisville stopped prescribing Xanax because it is such a common drug of abuse and so dangerous in combination with alcohol and opioids,Ž she said in an interview with Stateline. Researchers and patient advocates argue more needs to be done to educate medical students and inform doctors and patients about the drugs dangers. Dr. Christy Huff, who is in recovery from dependence on Xanax, co-directs the Utahbased Benzodiazepine Information Coalition. The nonpro“t advocates for stronger warnings for patients who take Xanax and other benzos, as well as better education for prescribing physicians. Our population of patients is experiencing extremely dif“cult withdrawals, and they have neurological injuries because of unsafe prescribing,Ž Huff said. Doctors need to be informed that the medications should be prescribed for no more than two to four weeks. They were always meant to be short term.ŽThese pills could be next US drug epidemicBy CHRISTINE VESTALSTATELINE.ORG (TNS) HEALING HEARTSpresentsOPEN TO THE PUBLICRefreshments will be served by Chef Mac 725 S.

No one is immune to the occasional clumsiness, but some people may grow concerned that their bouts of clumsiness are becoming more frequent. For healthy people, bumping into a wall when misjudging a corner or dropping silverware on the ”oor is often a minor, isolated incident. Lack of concentration or multitasking often may be to blame. In 2007, Professor Charles Swanik and a research team at the University of Delaware studied athletes to discover why some seem to be more injury prone than others. Researchers found that clumsy athletes brains seemed to have slowed processing speed,Ž which referred to how their brains understand new information and respond to it. But clumsiness also can be a sign of a bigger issue at play, namely motor problems within the brain. According to Taylor Harrison, MD, clinical instructor in the neuromuscular division of Emory University, coordination of the body is complicated and tied to both motor and sensory systems. That means the eyes, brain, nerves, cerebellum, which specializes in coordination and balance, muscles, and bones must work together. Clumsiness can result from stroke, seizure disorders, brain trauma or the presence of tumors, and other conditions. Healthline also says that clumsiness may be an early symptom of Parkinsons disease or Alzheimers. Parkinsons affects the central nervous system and can impair motor skills. Alzheimers slowly damages and kills brain cells and may cause issues with coordination. This may be the case with other dementias as well. Clumsiness may sometimes result from a lack of sleep or overconsumption of alcohol. Arthritis also can lead to clumsiness when joint pain and restrictive movements make it challenging to get around. Psychologists may suggest cognitive behavioral therapy or propose performing tasks with more mindfulness to reduce clumsiness. If that doesnt work, men and women should visit their physicians, who can conduct tests to rule out certain things and provide peace of mind.When is clumsiness a cause for concern?METRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS F i n d i t F i n d i t Find it i n i n in t h e t h e the C l a s s i f i e d s C l a s s i f i e d s Classifieds W h a t e v e r W h a t e v e r Whatever i t i t it i s . i s . is...

A spot or mole on the body can be a cause for concern. A seborrheic keratosis is one such type of skin growth that is actually benign but may cause concern due to its appearance. Seborrheic keratoses, or SKs, are one of the most common noncancerous skin growths, says The Mayo Clinic. Although anyone can get them, they are more common in middle-aged to older adults. Also known as basal cell papilloma, senile warts or barnacles, these growths form as a common sign of skin aging, according to DermNet New Zealand. The American Academy of Dermatology says a seborrheic keratosis may seem worrisome because it can look like a wart, a pre-cancerous skin growth or even skin cancer. However, despite their appearance, SKs are harmless. How do SKs form? Seborrheic means greasyŽ and keratosis means thickening of the skin.Ž Despite the name, SKs are not known to be caused by an abundance of sebum in the skin, nor are they limited to areas of increased oil production. The exact cause of SKs isnt known, but some doctors feel that an overproduction of skin cells can cause a thickening of the skin in certain areas. The American Osteopathic College of Dermatology offers that SKs are most likely hereditary, and they often are found on the trunk of the body and where the face meets the scalp. Sometimes seborrheic keratoses may erupt during pregnancy, following hormone replacement therapy or as a result of other medical problems. Appearance of SKs Some of these growths have a warty, rough surface, while others look like dabs of warm, brown candle wax on the skin. ADA says they can range in color from white to black, but most are tan or brown. The appearance of SKs may change as one ages, and it is even possible for them to fall off naturally over time. The Mayo Clinic says that, unless changes include becoming sore or bleeding without healing, theres little need to act. SKs may form singularly, but often they appear in groups. Cancer risk? SKs have no relationship to skin cancer and do not pose a risk to ones health. Unlike moles, they will not turn into melanoma. The super“cial nature of SKs mean they can become irritated by clothing and grow. Treatment Unless a seborrheic keratosis is in an area that causes constant irritation, there is really no need to seek treatment. However, dermatologists can remove them quite easily if they are unsightly or uncomfortable. A topical anesthetic, cryosurgery or laser therapy is possible. Generally little scarring is produced, offers AOCD. Although SKs are harmless, their appearance may be similar to skin conditions that are not. Those who are unsure about changes to the skin should always seek the help of a licensed dermatologist. What is a seborrheic keratosis?METRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS


Monday, July 23, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9 HEALTH NEWSMedical marijuana centers face foodsafety inspectionsTALLAHASSEE (AP) „ One of Floridas largest medical marijuana treatment centers has stopped processing cannabis until it meets a food-safety inspection deadline. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that Surterra halted its production of new items last week after it was noti“ed that the state Department of Health was enforcing a provision requiring medical marijuana treatment centers to get third-party inspections. Surterra operates eight locations around Florida. Only Trulieve has more locations with 15 dispensaries. Surterra says its in the process of completing the required inspections and expects its certi“cation process to be completed in the next few weeks. Many marijuana businesses ignored the inspection requirement, believing it was part of the states guidelines on edible medical marijuana. The Department of Health is still working on rules for edible marijuana.Florida woman being treated after attack by rabid batSUN CITY CENTER (AP) „ A Florida woman who was helping a friend into a car at a large retirement community felt something hit her arm but thought nothing of it until she went home and found a bat clinging to her arm. The woman squished the bat and reported it to the Health Department, which said Thursday that the animal had tested positive for rabies. The state Health Department says the woman is being treated. Health of“cials in Hillsborough County say they believe its an isolated incident and that there are no other cases in the Sun City Center retirement community in the Tampa, Florida area. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans.Army to introduce new fitness test that drops sit-upsFORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) „ The Army is changing up its physical “tness test after three decades in an effort to better replicate battle“eld needs while also being gender and age neutral. The Fayetteville Observer reports that the current test featuring situps, pushups and a 2-mile run will be phased out by late 2020. The Army instead will introduce a combat “tness test. It will require soldiers to repeatedly lift heaving objects to simulate picking up ammunition boxes or a wounded soldier. Troops will toss a 10-pound ball backward as far as possible to replicate the explosive power that might be needed to move rapidly over obstacles. Of“cials with Army Training and Doctrine Command say the new test is designed to improve soldier physical readiness, reduce injuries and better inform commanders of unit readiness.

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | Monday, July 23, 2018 arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, which can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. At least 2.7 million … and possibly as many as 6.1 million … American adults are living with AFib. The study, which described AFib as a major public health challenge and socioeconomic burden,Ž found that hospital-related charges for patients admitted with AFib increased by 37 percent, from $7.39 billion in 2007 to $10.1 billion in 2014. The question we asked is, why are so many people being admitted for AFib, and are there strategies that could help patients avoid hospitalizations without compromising the quality of care or outcome in any way, and maybe even improve them,Ž said Dr. Jeremy Ruskin, the studys senior author and founder and director emeritus of the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service at Massachusetts General Hospital. There are strategies we and others have implemented to manage a subset of stable, uncomplicated patients (with AFib) in the emergency department and avoid hospitalizations for many of them,Ž Ruskin said. Patients who are unstable and have complications such as congestive heart failure will continue to require hospital admission.Ž Many of the patients who sought treatment for atrial “brillation also had other chronic health problems, including high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, diabetes and kidney disease. Ruskin said those conditions are commonly associated with AFib and tend to be predictors of admission. Its understandable that the sicker patients with more of these concomitant medical problems are likely to be admitted,Ž said Ruskin, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. But he also pointed out that the study found hospitalization rates for AFib in the United States were nearly twice as high as those seen in Canada and Europe. We also know from experience in other countries and some of our own initiatives that a sizable percentage of patients who come to the emergency room can be managed with medications and can then be discharged from the emergency room and managed safely on an outpatient basis,Ž he said. Dr. Lin Yee Chen, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School and an atrial “brillation researcher who was not involved in the study, said the “ndings con“rm what many in the “eld have suspected about AFibs growing economic burden. The study is important in putting “rm “gures behind it, he said. We know that theres increasing incidence and prevalence of atrial “brillation. Part of this can be explained by the growing aging population. Its a contributor to chronic diseases in general and de“nitely to AFib,Ž said Chen, who chaired the writing committee for an American Heart Association scienti“c statement on atrial “brillation. More work needs to be done to intervene before the patient ends up in the hospital, with strategies to manage AFib, Chen said, much the way doctors are now trying to do with congestive heart failure. Theres a big push toward improving management of heart failure in the outpatient setting so that it will reduce ER visits and hospitalizations, which are not only expensive but also bad for the patient,Ž he said. Likewise, for AFib. We need to try to improve or optimize management in the outpatient setting so that we can reduce ”areups or exacerbations that will result in visiting the ER and hospitalizations.Ž If you have questions or comments about this story, please email PAGE 1certi“cation allows for natural substances, such as pheromones, vaccines for animals and a limited number of natural pesticides. Also, a 2011 survey by the USDA showed 39 percent of 571 organic samples were found to have pesticide residues, but well below tolerance levels set by the EPA. Therefore, pesticide-free and organic are not exclusive. Organic foods are seen as a healthy alternative to foods that do not fall into this category. While there are many positive reasons to go organic, including conventional foods in ones diet is not necessarily unhealthy. ORGANICFROM PAGE 1 Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says four out of every 100 children have a food allergy, and such numbers are on the rise. While the mechanisms by which a person develops an allergy to speci“c foods remain something of a mystery, new research points to the skin as a likely culprit. And certain products that unsuspecting parents use on infants and children may make matters worse. A study from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine says the factors contributing to food allergy include genetics that alter skin absorbency, skin exposure to allergens in dust, use of infant cleansing wipes that leave soap on the skin, and skin exposure to food from those providing infant care. These factors may be the ideal recipe for a food allergy to emerge. Even if a child has yet to ingest a certain food, it can still enter the body through the skin. Baby wipes containing the synthetic cleanser sodium lauryl sulphate may be partially to blame. The top layer of the skin is made of lipids that create a protective barrier against allergens. Soaps and wipes can disrupt that barrier, explains Joan Cook-Mills, a professor of allergy-immunology who was involved in a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Children with genetic skin-barrier defects also may be vulnerable to food allergies. When touched after an adult or sibling has handled peanut butter, eggs, soy, shell“sh, or one of the other common food allergens, such children may experience a reaction. Adults should wash their hands before picking up or tending to infants and rinse off areas where wipes or other cleansers are used to avoid potential problems with decreasing lipid barriers against allergens.

The News Wire Monday, July 23, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER Equalizer 2 squeaks past Mamma Mia 2 and takes top spotSee page 8 LOS ANGELES „ A feud between a man and his grandmother over his girlfriend staying at the grandmothers home exploded into violence that ultimately led to him taking dozens of people hostage inside a Los Angeles supermarket, a relative said Sunday. Investigators believe Gene Evin Atkins, 28, shot his grandmother several times and wounded his girlfriend at their South Los Angeles home on Saturday afternoon before he led police on a chase, while exchanging gun“re with of“cers, crashed into a pole outside the Trader Joes in the citys Silver Lake section and ran inside. Atkins was booked Sunday on suspicion of murder after an employee was killed as he ran into the supermarket, police said. His cousin, Charlene Egland, told The Associated Press that he had been arguing with his grandmother „ who had raised him since he was 7 years old „ on and off for about two or three weeksŽ over his girlfriend staying at elder womans home. She didnt want the girl over there anymore,Ž Egland said. On Saturday, Atkins grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Madison, 76, was walking back into the home and told her grandson he needs to turn some of them TVs offŽ when he shot her, she said. Egland said she heard about six gunshots before another cousin came running from the porch and shouted to Egland, I think Gene shot my mama!Ž Egland said she ran to call 911 and waited for an ambulance to arrive. At the same time, police said Atkins stole his grandmothers car and forced Gunman in Trader Joes standoff was feuding with grandmotherBy MICHAEL BALSAMOASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON (AP) „ A 3-year-old boy suffered severe burns on his face and arm during a suspected acid attack in England that investigators think was deliberate, police said Sunday. West Mercia police Chief Superintendent Mark Travis said police were working to identify the substance that burned the child Saturday at a store in Worcester. A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm. Three others were being sought for questioning and police released photos to generate public tips. At this time we are treating this as a deliberate attack,Ž Travis said in a statement. The incident will rightly shock the local community, and I would like to reassure local people that we are carrying out a thorough investigation.Ž British police have reported seeing an increase in acid attacks during the last year, but it is very rare for a victim to be so young. Some attacks are related to gang “ghts or late-night bar confrontations. Most of the attacks have happened in London, but they have been reported in many parts of Britain. A London teenager was given a prison sentence of more than 10 years this year after being convicted of spraying acid into the faces of moped drivers so he could steal their mopeds. Police also report that innocuous liquids sometimes are thrown into the face of mugging targets to make them think they have been hit with a corrosive substance, panic and give up their valuables more easily. Robin Walker, the Worcester representative in Parliament, said lawmakers are considering allowing tougher sentences for people convicted of any type of intentional assault with acid. He described what happened to the 3-year-old boy as horri“c.Ž A police statement late Sunday afternoon said the boy had been discharged from the hospital. He has not been identi“ed.UK police think boy, 3, was attacked with acid at storeBRIDGEWATER, N.J. „ President Donald Trump asserted without evidence Sunday that newly released documents relating to the wiretapping of his onetime campaign adviser Carter Page con“rm with little doubtŽ that intelligence agencies misled the court that approved the warrant. But lawmakers from both political parties said that the documents dont show wrongdoing and that they even appear to undermine some previous claims by top Republicans on the basis for obtaining a warrant against Page. Visible portions of the heavily redacted documents, released Saturday under the Freedom of Information Act, show the FBI telling the court that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government.Ž The agency also told the court that the FBI believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.Ž The documents were part of of“cials application for a warrant to the secretive foreign intelligence surveillance court, which signed off on surveilling Page. Trump tweeted Sunday on the documents: As usual they are ridiculously heavily redacted but con“rm with little doubt that the Department of Justice and FBI misled the courts. Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!Ž The release appears to undercut some of the contentions in a memo prepared by House Intelligence Committee CHICAGO „ Too few people with signs of mental decline or dementia are getting checked during routine medical visits or told when a problem is found, says a panel of Alzheimers disease experts who offered new guidance Sunday. The idea is to get help sooner for people whose minds are slipping „ even if theres no cure. Though mental decline can be an uncomfortable topic for patients and their doctors, the panel says family physicians should do a thorough evaluation when concerning symptoms arise and share the diagnosis candidly. Patients and family members should push for an evaluation if theyre worried that symptoms might not be normal aging „ the difference between occasionally misplacing keys versus putting them in the freezer or being confused about their function. By the time you forget what the keys are for, youre too far gone to participate in your own care. Weve lost probably a decadeŽ that could have been spent planning, said the panels leader, Dr. Alireza Atri, a neurologist at Banner Sun Health Research Institute in Arizona. Its not just memory that can suffer when mental decline starts, Atri said. Its actually peoples judgment being off, their character and personality being off,Ž sometimes years before dementia is diagnosed, he said.THE NEEDAbout 50 million people worldwide have dementia; Alzheimers is the most common form.

The evacuees, who were hemmed in from one side by advancing hostile Syrian troops and from another by militants af“liated with the Islamic State group, were transported to Jordan, from where they are expected to be resettled in Europe and Canada in the coming weeks. Jordans Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said 422 White Helmets volunteers were evacuated, instead of the initial 800 cleared for the operation. Israels military said the overnight operation was an exceptional humanitarian gestureŽ at the request of the United States and European allies due to an immediate threat to the (Syrians) lives.Ž It posted a video online showing its soldiers handing out water bottles to the evacuees. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a separate video statement, said U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others had asked him to help evacuate the groups members. These are people who saved lives and whose lives are now in danger. I authorized bringing them through Israel to other countries as an important humanitarian gesture,Ž Netanyahu said. Britain said the operation was possible due to the joint diplomatic efforts, hailing the efforts of the White Helmets volunteers to save lives in opposition areas. Jeremy Hunt, U.Ks foreign secretary, called the successful evacuation fantastic news,Ž and thanked Israel and Jordan in a tweet for acting quickly following the request. The White Helmets, he said, are the bravest of the brave and in a desperate situation this is at least one ray of hope.Ž The members of the White Helmets and their families had been stranded along the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights following the Syrian government offensive in southwestern Syria which began in June. Raed Saleh, head of the White Helmets which are also known as the Syrian Civil Defense, said a number of volunteers and their families were evacuated from a dangerous, besieged area. This was the “rst such Israeli intervention in Syrias lengthy civil war, now in its eighth year. Although it has sent aid into Syria and has provided medical treatment to thousands of Syrians who reached the Golan Heights frontier, the Israeli military said its actions did not re”ect a change to Israels non-intervention policy in Syrias war, where all the warring parties are considered hostile. It was an unprecedented operation to provide protection and asylum to allies of Western nations in Syrias complex battle“eld. The White Helmets have enjoyed backing and received “nances and training from the United States and other Western nations for years. Because of their work in opposition areas, where they were almost exclusively the only ones to offer rescue services in the face of the government military advances, they were considered public enemy number one by the Syrian government. They offered services where state institutions and services are nonexistent. Their facilities were targeted, and their volunteers hit in what became known as double tapŽ attacks that drew the volunteers to areas of bombings only to hit them once on site. The Syrian government, and its ally Russia, have called the White Helmets terrorists,Ž accused them of being foreign powers agents,Ž and of cooperating with radical insurgent groups. Both Moscow and Damascus have accused the White Helmets of staging rescue missions and chemical attacks to blame on the government. On Sunday, state media kept up its campaign against the group, pointing out that Israel, with which Syria is formally at war, which facilitated the evacuation, citing it as evidence that the group was collaborating with an enemy power. Syrian state TV al-Ikhbariya called the evacuation a scandal.Ž One civil defense of“cial, refusing to be identi“ed by name for his safety, said the Russians „ allies of the Syrian government and who were mediating the surrender deals „ refused to allow the White Helmets to be evacuated to the north. The Associated Press “rst reported on Friday that U.S. of“cials were “nalizing plans to evacuate several hundred Syrian civil defense workers and their families from southwest Syria as Russian-backed government forces closed in on the area along the Golan Heights frontier. On Sunday, the British International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt and Foreign Secretary Hunt said the volunteers and their family have been able to leave Syria for safetyŽ following a joint diplomatic effort by Britain and its international partners. They said due to the risk the volunteers faced and their high pro“le, necessary steps were taken to afford protection to as many volunteers and their familiesŽ as possible.Syrian White Helmets evacuated to Jordan through IsraelBy SARAH EL DEEB and ARON HELLERASSOCIATED PRESS SYRIAN CIVIL DEFENSE WHITE HELMETS VIA APIn this June 14, 2017, le photo, provided by the Syrian Civil Defense group known as the White Helmets, civilians rush out of the damaged buildings after airstrikes. TEHRAN, Iran „ Irans president warned his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump not to threaten the Persian Gulf nations oil exports and suggested that his country has alternatives to shipping crude through the Strait of Hormuz. Trump is reimposing sanctions on Iran, which ships most of its oil through the strait, in an effort to squelch the countrys oil sales. Hormuz, a shipping chokepoint at the mouth of the gulf, is a conduit for tankers carrying about 30 percent of all seaborne-traded crude oil and other liquids. Other members of the OPEC such as Saudi Arabia and Iraq also export much of their crude through the strait. Iran and the European Union are working to salvage the 2015 agreement that lifted sanctions on the country in exchange for concessions on its nuclear work. Trump withdrew from the international agreement and is restoring U.S. sanctions. Rouhani made his comments a day after Irans Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said negotiating with the U.S. would be useless. Mr. Trump! We are the honest men who have throughout history guaranteed the safety of this regions waterways,Ž Hassan Rouhani said. Do not play with the lions tail, it will bring regret.Ž Iran would halt oil shipments through the strait if the U.S. stopped it from exporting, Esmail Kowsari, deputy commander of the Sarollah Revolutionary Guards base in Tehran, said this month, according to the Young Journalists Club, which is af“liated with Irans national broadcaster.Iran tells Trump not to threaten its oil exportsBy GOLNAR MOTEVALLIBLOOMBERG NEWSKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) „ A suicide bomber carried out an attack near Kabuls airport in Afghanistan on Sunday killing 14 people, and narrowly missing the countrys vice president who was returning home after living in Turkey for over a year, security of“cials said.

The Sun /Monday, July 23, 2018 Page 3 WASHINGTON „ The agency that supervises the nations nuclear weapons stockpile would essentially lose direct Cabinet oversight under legislation that Congress is negotiating. The little-noticed provision in a defense policy bill is opposed by the Trump administration and senior lawmakers from both parties, but efforts to scrap it have not overcome resistance from staffers on the Senate Armed Services Committee. At issue in the Senateapproved bill is whether the National Nuclear Security Administration remains under the direct control of the Energy Department, where its been since its creation in 2000. The bill would empower that agency to act nearly on its own, freed from what a report by the Senate committee calls a ”awed DOE organizational processŽ that has led to weak accountability ... insuf“cient program and budget expertise and poor contract management.Ž That report cites a series of delays and cost overruns at the agency, including a contentious project to reprocess weapons-grade plutonium and uranium into fuel for commercial reactors. The cost of the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility in South Carolina has ballooned from $1.4 billion in 2004 to more than $17 billion and completion is decades away. The Energy Department has moved to cancel the project, but it remains open „ at a cost of $1.2 million a day „ amid a legal challenge by the state of South Carolina. The White House and Energy Secretary Rick Perry strongly oppose the reorganization, saying it would usurp Perrys authority to set policy in crucial areas and make the nuclear agencys general counsel independent of the Energy Departments legal division. The White House said in a statement that the bill would block the energy secretary from directing civil and national security functions at the agency and degradeŽ the secretarys ability to protect the health, safety and security of employees and the public. A Perry spokeswoman, Shaylyn Hynes, called the plan misguidedŽ and said it would weaken national security efforts by limiting DOEs critical role in managing Americas nuclear weapons capabilities.Ž The NNSA said in a statement that while intended to improve ef“ciencies, the changes put forward by the Senate committee would signi“cantly limit the secretarys ability to ful“ll his nuclear security missions and ... lead to unnecessary duplication of effort at NNSA for work already being carried out by DOE.Ž The leaders of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee said the plan was a major step backward.Ž To reduce the secretarys authority in such a sweeping way .... raises serious questions about the long-term consequences,Ž Sens. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said in a letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee. Murkowski and Cantwell supported Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as he tried unsuccessfully to remove the provision during Senate debate on the defense bill last month. A later Cruz effort also failed on procedural grounds. Criticism of the nuclear agency isnt new. A congressional commission led by a former Army undersecretary and retired Navy admiral concluded in 2014 that it had failed in its mission and relied too heavily on private contractors that had turned it into a massive jobs program with duplicative functions and a dysfunctional management and operations relationship.Ž The commission, however, did support the current oversight arrangement. A Senate aide familiar with the reorganization plan contended it was a straight-up power grabŽ by staffers at the nuclear agency and the Senate Armed Services Committee. Agency staffers, frustrated by delays that occur as the Energy Departments general counsel and other of“cials review their work, took their case to Senate committee staffers, according to the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal deliberations. The committee chairman, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has been away from the Capitol since December as he “ghts brain cancer. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., has led the committee in McCains absence but has not played a role in the nuclear agency dispute. In its staff-written report, the committee said the proposal was not an indictment of the current Energy secretaryŽ but rather an effort to address a number of structural impedimentsŽ that have damaged the NNSAs ability to carry out its mission.Ž A committee spokeswoman declined to comment, as did representatives for Inhofe and Rhode Island Sen. Jack Reed, the committees top Democrat. Spokesmen for leaders of the House Armed Service Committee also declined to comment. Perry told Congress this year that there have been historically questionable expenditures of dollarsŽ on the MOX project and other NNSA contracts, but said of“cials were working to ensure taxpayers are getting a good return on our investment.Ž We will give good oversight,Ž Perry told the House Science, Space and Technology Committee in May, pledging to make the NNSA and other DOE agencies as transparent as we can and try to get us the results that this committee wants.Ž Greg Mello of the Los Alamos Study Group, a New Mexico-based watchdog group, said the proposed changes would begin dismantling civilian control over the nuclear weapons enterprise.Ž Corporate contractors have already captured NNSA. These changes would gut what remaining oversight and external control there is,Ž Mello said.Defense bill would curb Cabinet control of nuclear agencyBy MATTHEW DALYASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK „ At the ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools Pesach Eisen attended in Brooklyn, most of the day was spent studying religious texts with classes taught in Yiddish. One class at the end of the day was spent on secular subjects including English and math, enough to be able to go to the food stamps of“ce and apply.Ž Everything was super basic. ƒ Nobody took it seriously, so even if you were a studious person you had no chance,Ž said the now-32-year-old Eisen, who had to take remedial classes and study intensively on his own before graduating from college in 2016. Complaints that schools like Eisens run by New Yorks strictly observant Hasidic Jews barely teach English, math, science or social studies have fueled a movement to demand stricter oversight by state and local educational authorities. Critics plan to “le a lawsuit on Monday in federal court, seeking to stop the state from enforcing legislation that was intended to shield the schools, called yeshivas, from some government oversight. Defenders of the yeshivas say parents have the right to send their children to schools that provide a Jewish education consistent with their beliefs and traditions. The yeshiva backers also say critics err by just counting the minutes of a school day spent on secular studies. The problem solving, the literacy, the critical thinking, all that is in Judaica studies as well,Ž said Yitzchok Kaufman, a Brooklyn yeshiva alumnus and parent. The planned lawsuit by Young Advocates for Fair Education, or YAFFED, which is pushing for improved secular education in the ultraOrthodox schools, names Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Department of Educations top two of“cials as defendants. There are about 275 Orthodox Jewish yeshivas in New York state, but many are modern Orthodox schools that provide a full secular curriculum along with religious studies. YAFFED founder Naftuli Moster said the Hasidic yeshivas where secular education is generally given short shrift number 83 in New York City and 38 in other parts of the state. An estimated 115,000 children attend the schools. For boys in the Hasidic yeshiva system, the emphasis is on studying religious texts. Classes are taught in Yiddish, the language spoken in most Hasidic homes. Secular subjects are relegated to the end of the long school day, when the boys are restless and inattentive, critics say. Once the boys reach high school, they dont study secular subjects, devoting their entire day to the Torah, Talmud and other Jewish texts. Hasidic girls cant study Talmud and therefore learn more English, math and social studies than the boys do, though taboo subjects such as evolution and sex education are typically omitted. They erased anything about dinosaurs,Ž said Shavy Rosenberg, who attended Hasidic schools for girls. Although the schools are private, they are not entirely free of government oversight because of a state law requiring that instruction in non-public schools be substantially equivalent to the instruction given at the local public school. The legislation pushed by Sen. Simcha Felder, a Democrat, singled out schools with long days, bilingual programs and nonpro“t status „ in effect, yeshivas „ and put the state Department of Education, not local school districts, in charge of determining what curriculum rules those schools must follow.Questioning real-world learning at ultra-Orthodox schoolsBy KAREN MATTHEWSASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this July18, photo, Pesach Eisen poses in front of a yeshiva he attended as a child in Brooklyn, New York.

Daniel Bevarly, executive director of the National Freedom of Information Coalition, tells The Associated Press that technologies such as private messaging apps undermine state open government laws.

The nations largest commuter train system said Friday its printing next months tickets on paper marked for 2016 and 2019 due to a problem with its usual supply. Riders who get monthly tickets by mail will see a big 19Ž instead of 18Ž on the one for August. Monthlies sold at ticket machines and offices are being made with green ticket stock from 2016. The LIRR says riders should ignore a Dec. 31, 2016, expiration date on those tickets and male and female punch boxes that were removed from tickets this year. Riders have vented on Twitter about the latest blunder from a railroad plagued by delays and overcrowding. Matt Anderson writes: You guys just cant get anything right!ŽODD NEWS Paper problem has Long Island Rail Road tickets saying 2019Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes earlier this year. Nunes, R-Calif., and other Republicans had said that anti-Trump research in a dossier prepared by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele and paid for by Democrats was used inappropriately to obtain the warrant on Page. While the documents con“rm that the FBI relied, in part, on information from Steele to obtain the initial warrant, they also show how the FBI informed the court of his likely motivation. A page-long footnote in the warrant application lays out the FBIs assessment of Steeles history and the likely interest of his backer, adding that despite the political concern, the bureau believed at least some of his report to be credible.Ž Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, a ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said the documents detail just why the FBI was so concerned that Carter Page might be acting as an agent of a foreign power.Ž It was a solid application and renewals signed by four different judges appointed by three different Republican presidents,Ž Schiff said on ABCs This Week.Ž Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida also broke with Trump, saying he didnt think the FBI did anything wrong in obtaining warrants against Page. I have a different view on this issue than the president and the White House,Ž Rubio said Sunday on CBS Face the Nation.Ž They did not spy on the campaign from anything and everything that I have seen. You have an individual here who has openly bragged about his ties to Russia and Russians.Ž On Sunday, Page said on CNNs State of the UnionŽ: Ive never been the agent of a foreign power.Ž In a 2013 letter, Page had described himself as an informal adviser to the Kremlin but now said its really spinŽ to call him an adviser. Page has not been charged with a crime, but he has been interviewed by the FBI and congressional investigators about his ties to Russia. White House of“cials have argued that Page, announced by the president in early 2016 as a foreign policy adviser, played only a minor role in the Trump campaign. Another former campaign policy aide, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty last year to charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller alleging he had lied to the FBI about his Russia contacts. He is now cooperating with Muellers expansive probe. The documents released Saturday include the FBIs October 2016 request to surveil Page and several renewal applications. It marks the “rst time in the more than 40-year history of the highly-secretive court that underlying documents for a warrant have been released.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1 United States, nearly 6 million have Alzheimers and almost 12 million have mild cognitive impairment, a frequent precursor. In 2015, Alzheimers Association research using Medicare records suggested that only about half of people who were being treated for Alzheimers had been told by their health care provider that they had been diagnosed with the disease. All too often, physicians will hear of some symptoms or memory complaints from patients or their spouse and say, you know, you seem OK to me today,Ž so check back in six months, said James Hendrix, an Alzheimers Association science specialist who worked with the panel. Meantime, the patient may end up hospitalized for problems such as forgetting to take a diabetes medicine because their mental impairment wasnt caught. We hear stories all the time of people taking years to get an accurate diagnosis,Ž said Nina Silverberg, a psychologist who runs Alzheimers programs at the National Institute on Aging, which had no role in the guidelines. Medicare recently started covering mental assessments as part of the annual wellness visit, but doctors arent required to do it and there was no guidance on how to do it, she said. In some cases, it might be as cursory as asking hows your memory?Ž The panel was appointed by the Alzheimers Association and included primary care doctors, aging specialists, nurses and a psychiatrist. Broad guidelines were released on Sunday at the groups international conference in Chicago; details will be published later this year. The guidelines do not recommend screening everyone. They outline what health workers should do if people describe worrisome symptoms. That includes: checking for risk factors that may contribute to dementia or other brain diseases, including family history, heart disease and head injuries; pen-and-pencil memory tests; imaging tests to detect small strokes or brain injuries that could be causing memory problems.TOUGH TOPICDr. Michael Sitorius, family medicine chairman at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said dealing with mental decline adds to the challenge of caring for often frail elderly patients. Its a tough diagnosis to make for many doctors, he said, because medical training focuses on trying to cure people and Alzheimers and dementia are not curable.Ž He said he gives his older patients mental tests at their annual checkups „ but that sometimes patients or loved ones dont want to hear the results. In those cases, Sitorius still addresses related issues including depression, safeguarding medication, nutrition and whether patients should continue driving. He said the new guidelines are a welcome reminder for family doctors to tackle these issues earlier. A diagnosis should never be withheld out of fear of making the patient depressed, Atri said. We strongly encourage a full disclosure,Ž including diagnosis, stage and prognosis, he said.PATIENTS STORYAt her daughters urging, Anne Hunt visited her family doctor in 2011 because of increasing forgetfulness. Hunt, 81, who once ran a Chicago cooking school, recalls struggling with memory tests involving letters and numbers that her doctor had her perform. The test results were inconclusive and there was no diagnosis. We didnt do much about it,Ž said Bruce Hunt, Annes husband, until “ve years later, when her behavior was clearly worsening „ more memory lapses, repeating herself and forgetting where to put things. She was diagnosed with Alzheimers after an imaging test showed brain changes often seen with the disease. Imaging tests are sometimes used along with mental tests to diagnose the disease or rule out other conditions.IS IT GOOD TO KNOW?Theres no pill they can take to make it go away, so some people think theres no point to getting a diagnosis,Ž but thats not true, the National Institute of Agings Silverberg said. It really does offer an opportunity to plan.Ž Alzheimers medicines such as Aricept and Namenda can ease symptoms but arent a cure. Experts say other bene“ts include a chance to join experiments testing treatments, resolve “nances, “nd caregivers, make homes safer and use memory aids and calendars to promote independent living. The Hunts joined support groups and a singing ensemble, hoping that trying new things would help them both cope. They were better prepared than some. Long before her diagnosis, they converted a vintage Chicago apartment building into two spacious homes so they could age in placeŽ with help from one of their daughters and her family. Anne Hunt said she had wanted to know the truth about her diagnosis. Not to know is to wonder why things are happening to you and you dont understand them,Ž she said. I would rather know and have somebody help me “gure out how can I control this to the best of my ability.ŽDEMENTIAFROM PAGE 1his girlfriend into the vehicle. Of“cers tracked the car using a stolen-vehicle tracking system and tried to stop the man in Hollywood, but he refused to pull over, police said. During the chase, he “red at of“cers, shooting out the back window of his car. More gun“re ensued before Atkins crashed into a pole outside the supermarket. The man exchanged gun“re with police again and thats when a 27-year-old Trader Joes employee, Melyda Corado, was shot and killed, Police Chief Michel Moore said. Of“cers escorted the girlfriend from the vehicle. Customers and employees frantically dove for cover and barricaded themselves inside storerooms and bathrooms as bullets “red by police shattered the stores glass doors. As he heard gun“re, Sean Gerace, who was working in the back of the supermarket, grabbed several of his co-workers and the group made their way into an upstairs storage area. He grabbed a folding ladder and tossed it out a window, helping his colleagues escape to safety, he told KNBC-TV. I grabbed an emergency ladder, barricaded the hallway, grabbed a weapon, put the ladder out the window and just tried to get the attention of the SWAT of“cer,Ž Gerace told the television station. About three hours later, Atkins agreed to handcuff himself and walked out the front door, surrounded by four of the hostages. He was being held on $2 million bail Sunday and it wasnt clear if he had an attorney to comment on the allegations. His grandmother was taken to a hospital in critical condition and police said she had been shot seven times, but Egland, who visited Madison at the hospital on Sunday, said she had only been shot three times, had undergone surgery and her condition was improving. Atkins, who has two daughters, bounced between several jobs, including working as a security guard, but had been repeatedly “red, Egland said. His license to work as a security guard expired in November 2017, according to state records. It was not clear whether the particular license he possessed would have allowed him to legally carry a “rearm. His grandmother had also tried to help him “nd employment and was just trying to make him do better,Ž Egland said. Atkins never grew violent toward his grandmother before, Egland said, but she started to grow concerned about him over the last several weeks because he seemed upset and distant. He didnt seem right to me,Ž Egland said. Im just devastated.Ž On Sunday, grieving family members, co-workers and customers remembered Corado, the Trader Joes worker, as lively, hardworking and always smiling.

SEATTLE „ Thousands of tiny tremors over the past few months have moved parts of Washington state and Vancouver Island westward. Its a near-annual event that backs expectations by some scientists that a big earthquake may hit the Seattle area harder than their previous models suggested. The recent wave of activity began in May and appears to be dying off now, according to University of Washington earth sciences professor Ken Creager. Its a process, known as episodic tremor and slip, thought to increase stress on locked faults „ areas where tectonic plates cannot move past each other. Earthquakes occur when the pressure on locked zones reaches the breaking point and the plates snap past each other. Scientists believe an episode of tremors could someday trigger a so-called megaquake on the offshore fault called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The 700-mile-long fault runs from Vancouver Island to northern California, and could unleash earthquakes of up to magnitude 9.0. Its one of the biggest of faults in the U.S. While older models suggest that the locked zone is mostly shallow and offshore, the location of these tremors indicates that in a big earthquake, layers of rock jerking past each other may take place closer to Seattle than previously thought. Also unknown is the timing of the next big earthquake. The Paci“c Northwest last had a megaquake about 300 years ago. Scientists widely expect the region to experience a similar event every 500 years on average. It could happen anytime in the next few hundred years but it could be tomorrow,Ž Creager said. Most of the year, the offshore Juan de Fuca plate pushes against the North American plate and moves parts of Washington and Vancouver Island to the east. Then, about every 14 months, a series of tremors slides the North American plate back a few millimeters. This years tremors moved the eastern portion of the Olympic Peninsula and southern Vancouver Island about 5 millimeters. Canadian seismologist John Cassidy said that episodic tremor and slip is helpful for understanding the process of subduction, when one plate goes under another. Although these tremors have likely been occurring for hundreds of years, the process of episodic tremor and slip was discovered only in the early 2000s and much more research has to be done, Cassidy said. The slower nature of these tremors allows scientists to better understand ruptures, which are much harder to study in the seconds-long duration of most earthquakes. You can study these ruptures in detail in a way that you cant with a regular earthquake,Ž Creager said. Theres a lot of mystery left.ŽTremors shove Washington state westBy SARAH WUTHE SEATTLE TIMESFROM PAGE ONE


The Sun /Monday, July 23, 2018 Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I'm female, 68 years old with hypothyroidism but no other medical problems. I exercise about 10 hours a week and try to eat healthy. During one of my physical checkups, my TSH was 0.002, so I saw an endocrinologist. After three months of blood tests, everything became normal even without medicine. My T4, T3, TSH and complete metabolic panel results all are in the normal range. The one that is not is the TPO level, which is greater than 600. She asked me to take 25 mcg of levothyroxine once a day. When I asked her if I need to continue the medication, she said yes, because of the presence of TPO. Is it true that once you have TPO, you have it for life and it won't go away? Will I have to take the medicine for life? „ C.G. ANSWER: There's a lot of information here, but let's start with the TPO (really, anti-TPO), which are antibodies to the enzyme thyroid peroxidase. This enzyme is critical in an important step in the production of thyroid hormone. High levels of anti-TPO are suggestive of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. However, they can occur in other thyroid conditions, such as Graves' disease, a common cause of hyperthyroidism. A low TSH, such as the 0.002 you initially had, is highly suggestive of hyperthyroidism. Transient hyperthyroidism happens in early stages of Hashimoto's, which is what I think you most likely have. Right now, you are not hypothyroid. However, most people with Hashimoto's will progress to a prolonged period of hypothyroidism. This is likely in people with high levels of anti-TPO antibodies. Over time, the thyroid usually returns to normal, but this can take years. Most of the time, people with hypothyroidism from Hashimoto's stay on replacement thyroid hormone, but it can be slowly tapered o under careful observation in most people. DEAR DR. ROACH: I would like to know your opinion about taking vitamin K-2 for osteoporosis. I have not shown improvement with raloxifene, Fosamax or Actonel. I imagine that I am low in K-2 because I am on a low-cholesterol diet with no cheese or egg yolks. I am 72 and otherwise in good health. I do not take any other prescription medication. I would appreciate any information you can provide. „ J.F.C. ANSWER: Vitamin K-2 has been used for years in Japan as a treatment for osteoporosis, a condition of weakened bone that predisposes to fracture. Most vitamin K-2 is synthesized in the gut by our bacteria, using K-1 as a source (K-1 is found in leafy green vegetables). You don't need cheese or eggs to get adequate K-2. However, studies outside of Japan have not shown signicant benet of K-2 supplements in preventing or treating osteoporosis, so it is seldom prescribed in North America. When people don't respond to medications for osteoporosis, it's appropriate to look for a reason why. Vitamin D deciency is a big possibility (the body also needs enough calcium), and vitamin D should be tested by blood level. Risendronate (Actonel) and alendronate (Fosamax) both work the same way: by decreasing the activity of the osteoclasts, the cells that break down bone. Both require precise adherence in order to be absorbed properly, such as being taken while fasting. Raloxifene (Evista) works on the estrogen receptor and also seems to prevent bone resorption. For people who do not respond to those medications, I consider teriparatide, which works by stimulating new bone formation.DEAR ABBY: As a child, I suered a lot of abuse from my parents until I nally, at 13, opened up to a teacher. I was removed from my house and spent the remainder of my youth in various foster homes. I have cut all ties with my biological family, as I am happier and more sane without them. The problem is, coworkers and sometimes even strangers at my retail job ask me about my children's grandparents. When I explain that we have a "strained" relationship, they often tell me I need to get over it, learn to forgive or that I'll regret not mending things. Am I wrong for wanting to maintain a distance? „ Cut O By Choice In Kentucky DEAR CUT OFF: You are not obligated to give a detailed response to these individuals, who may only be trying to make conversation when they ask. All you need to say is that "the grandparents are not involved." There could be many reasons for it, but you don't have to share them. DEAR ABBY: I married right out of high school, 20 years ago. We have two amazing kids in their late teens „ a son in college and a daughter in her last year of high school. I haven't been in love with my wife for a very long time. I have tried everything to bring those feelings back, including talking with her about it, but the feelings just aren't there anymore. Sometimes I feel I don't deserve to be happy, but doesn't my happiness count? „ Miserable In Maine DEAR MISERABLE: Talk to your wife again about the fact that you haven't been happy for many years. Delay separating until your daughter has left for college, and in the meantime, give marriage counseling a shot, even if you already have. If, after that, nothing has improved, try to keep the divorce as amicable as possible for the sake of everyone concerned. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF concerns new cars that do not include a spare tire. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: When shopping for a new car, most people don't bother to check to see if there is a spare tire included with the sale, but in fact, many new cars do not include this. "If you insist on getting a spare tire, some dealers will sell you a kit, which includes a tire, a jack and a lug wrench. It will cost you between $150 and $300, in addition to the purchase price of the car." „ Fred J. in Detroit Dear Heloise: I'm tired of dragging a measuring cup to the laundromat; I've lost about four so far. Got any hints to help me? „ Morgan D., Boulder City, Nev. Morgan, try a yogurt cup (an 8-ounce container), and use that to measure your laundry soap. If that container gets lost, it's not a big deal. „ HeloiseDoes an elevated TPO alone constitute hypothyroidism? Cause of family's divide is no business of co-workers New cars sparing the spareHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Here We Go Again.Ž Studios on Sunday estimate that the R-rated Denzel Washington joint grossed $35.8 million from North American theaters over the weekend. Its Washingtons “rst ever sequel and the biggest opening of director Antoine Fuquas career. The “rst Equalizer,Ž from 2014, opened similarly and went on to earn over $190 million worldwide. Second place went to Universal Pictures Mamma Mia 2,Ž which took in $34.4 million, a sum that was driven by an audience that was 83 percent female and 64 percent over the age of 25. The “lm brought back much of the original cast, like Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried and Pierce Brosnan, and added Cher, Andy Garcia and Lily James to the mix. Critics overall gave the sequel better marks than the “rst, which still went on to gross over $600 million worldwide 10 years ago. Its also a rare showdown of two star-driven “lms that succeeded in targeting two very different audiences. Its amazing how wellmatched these contenders are,Ž said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Both studios really did a great job of marketing each of these movies to their target audience.

The weekends other big new opener, Unfriended: Dark Web,Ž also a sequel, scared up $3.5 million for a ninth-place start. The only two originals in the top 10 were SkyscraperŽ and Sorry to Bother You.Ž People are enjoying these “lms,Ž said Dergarabedian. It doesnt matter if theres a number after the title.Ž And yet there are still original “lms and documentaries making their own modest impact on the charts, including Blindspotting,Ž a buddy comedy with some serious themes about race and class starring Tony-winner Daveed Diggs that opened in 14 theaters and made an estimated $332,500. Movies like Sorry to Bother You and Blindspotting are showing that in the summer people dont live by blockbusters alone,Ž Dergarabedian said.

But Jamie Lee Curtis changed that Friday, walking off-stage during the presentation for the new HalloweenŽ to embrace an emotional fan. Wiping tears away, the man used his moment at the Q&A microphone to tell a story about a home invasion he experienced. He said that her character saved his life and inspired him to use knitting needles in defense. He said he was a victor not a victim because of her, and that she was the reason he attended the convention. A stunned audience watched as Curtis, without warning, left her seat on the big stage and walked down to share a quiet moment with the man. His comments echoed what Curtis had said just moments earlier about how this new iteration of HalloweenŽ is so important because it allows her character to reclaim her narrative 40 years after the traumatic events with Michael Myers in John Carpenters movie. This is a woman who has been waiting 40 years to face the person she knows is coming back,Ž Curtis said. 40 years later Laurie had no real support, had no real help. PTSD is real. Trauma is real.Ž She says her character in this new “lm gets the chance to take back the legacyŽ of her life. That weirdly enough seems to be a bit of a thing in the world today,Ž Curtis added to cheers. Curtis got a wildly enthusiastic reception from the crowd in the 6,500-seat Hall H throughout the presentation, which also featured some horrifying and bloody footage from the upcoming. Halloween,Ž directed by David Gordon Green, hits theaters on Oct. 19.Jamie Lee Curtis hugs an emotional Halloween fanBy LINDSEY BAHRAP FILM WRITER CURTISLOS ANGELES „ Michael Scott Moore is walking a bit gingerly these days, but it has nothing to do with the 2 years he spent imprisoned by Somali pirates, the beatings he suffered, his time spent in chains or the lousy food that caused him to lose 40 pounds. I got thumped by a wave sur“ng off Manhattan Beach the other day,Ž the author of The Desert and the Sea: 977 days Captive on the Somali Pirate CoastŽ says with a sheepish grin. Ive got a cracked rib.Ž Otherwise Moore, freed by his pirate captors in 2014 after his mother raised a $1.6 million ransom, looks “ne. Hes dressed casually in a dark blue shirt and jeans as he sits down in the shade of the century-old art-deco building that houses Los Angeles downtown library to talk about his latest book. The Desert and the SeaŽ goes on sale Tuesday, and its 49-year-old author is about to embark on a cross-country tour of readings and signings. The page-turning thriller, published by Harper Collins, takes readers on a relentless journey as Moore reveals the squalid living conditions that nearly killed him, the beatings he endured and the thoughts of suicide he weighed, along with other thoughts of grabbing one of his captors machine guns and seeing how many of them he could kill before they killed him. I dont know,Ž he says with a smile when asked how he survived it all. After several seconds of quiet contemplation, he adds that a combination of giving up any immediate hope of freedom and living in the moment helped. So did maintaining a sense of humor while trapped in a very unfunny situation. Thus, the book contains several darkly comic moments. Moore “rst thought of writing a book about modern-day piracy when he came across examples of it in coastal African and southeast Asian nations he visited while seeking out some of the worlds best sur“ng spots for a 2010 book. Sweetness and Blood,Ž documenting how a loose-knit band of hippies, star-struck wanderers and U.S. military personnel helped turn an ancient Hawaiian sport into an international pop-culture phenomenon, has been hailed as arguably the best historical account of modern-day sur“ng. His plans to report on piracy werent sealed, however, until he covered the trial of 10 pirates captured after abducting a German cargo ship off Somalia in 2010. By the time he arrived in Somalia in January 2012, piracy had become a cottage industry for a nation plunged into poverty and lawlessness by years of civil unrest. Young men unable to “nd other work sailed the high seas in small skiffs looking for people to kidnap and hold for multimillion-dollar ransoms. Moore says he knew going to Somalia was dangerous, but he thought hed taken all necessary precautions. A “xerŽ with clan connections arranged the trip in which he was accompanied by a large contingent of machine-gun-toting guards. But a pirate leader Moore interviewed betrayed him, paying off most of his security team. Moore was captured on a dusty desert road by pirates who demanded a $20 million ransom. As his mother spent years negotiating the price and raising money from family and friends, Moores plight went largely unreported. His employer, Der Spiegel, asked other news organizations to withhold the story, fearing publicity would drive up the price. Almost all, including The Associated Press, complied. Moore says he has fully recovered physically from his ordeal, although it took more than a year. He still struggles with some emotional scars. For now, Moore is busy with his book tour and working on a feature story about three men recently convicted of plotting to blow up a Kansas apartment building housing Somali refugees. After that hed like to get back to some of the travel writing that took him to many fascinating parts of the world when he was researching his sur“ng book. Then he laughs as he quickly says, It doesnt have to be dangerous travel.ŽAuthor tells about kidnapping by piratesBy JOHN ROGERSASSOCIATED PRESS MOORE BERLIN (AP) „ Kraftwerk fans are used to hearing otherworldly tunes, but the German electronic music pioneers took it to another level in Stuttgart.

He was overlooked for so much of Sunday playing alongside Tiger Woods, who caused pure pandemonium at Carnoustie by taking the lead in the final round of a major for the first time in nine years. Molinari settled for the best cheer of them all. The last one. Amid so much chaos „ seven players atop the leaderboard, six of them still tied on the back nine „ Molinari played a steady hand by going the entire weekend without a bogey and finishing with a 5-foot birdie putt that secured his place in history as Italys first major champion. Clearly, in my group, the attention wasnt really on me, lets put it that way,Ž Molinari said, the gleaming claret jug in front of him. If someone was expecting a charge, they probably werent expecting it from me. But its been the same the whole of my career.Ž His charge was a 2-under 69 in the strongest wind of the week, the only player from the last four groups to break par. Woods lost the lead with one bad swing that would have been even farther left of the 11th green had it not crashed into the fans, leading to double bogey. He followed that with a bogey and never caught up. He had to settle for a 71. Jordan Spieth, tied for the lead in his bid to go back-to-back in the British Open, failed to make a single birdie and shot 76, his highest score Sunday in a major.

The Welshmans rivals for cyclings most prestigious prize, which include teammate Chris Froome in second place, mostly held back over the hilly Stage 15 with a decisive final week of racing ahead. Thomas kept the overall lead for a fourth consecutive day before the race pauses for riders to rest on Monday. That break will precede a stretch in the Pyrenees that will feature three mountain stages before an individual time trial on the Tours penultimate day. There are three big, big days left, and then the time trial, so (I) just take each day as it comes and we will see what happens,Ž Thomas said. Thomas maintained his advantage of 1 minute, 39 seconds over defending champion Froome. Tom Dumoulin, the world time trial champion, remained third at 1:50 back. Primoz Roglic was fourth at 2:38 behind and Romain Bardet 3:21 behind in fifth. With Froome seeking a fifth Tour title, Team Sky has yet to declare its current top option for the title since Thomas won back-to-back summit finishes in the Alps.

Sundays third stoppage of play at Champions Trace at Keene Trace Golf Club came with the four leaders „ Hunter Mahan, Robert Streb Tom Lovelady and Troy Merritt at 18-under par „ and four other contenders waiting to begin the round. The tournament will resume at 7:30 a.m. on Monday. Lightning caused one delay, and play was stopped earlier in the afternoon to clear water that accumulated on the course following a morning of steady and sometimes-heavy rain. Inclement weather has plagued the tournament throughout the weekend. The second round was completed Saturday morning after being suspended by thunderstorms late Friday afternoon. The resumption will mark the PGA Tours second Monday finish this season. Jason Day won the Farmers Insurance Open in January after darkness delayed the sixth playoff hole, and he needed just 13 minutes to claim the victory.GOLFWeather suspends Barbasol ChampionshipAP PHOTOBilly Spencer, right, a caddie for golfer Stephan Jauger, looks at the weather app on his cell phone while waiting out a rain delay during the final round of the PGA Tour Barbasol Championship on Sunday.

Late in her career, Portland also faced accusations she discriminated against players whom she perceived to be gay, with a former player suing Portland and the school in 2005. An internal school investigation led to a one-game suspension and $10,000 fine though Portland disputed the findings. The lawsuit was settled confidentially. She resigned as coach of Penn State in 2007. Portland was inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame last November. Rene fought a courageous and determined fight against her cancer,Ž former Virginia coach Debbie Ryan said. She will be remembered as someone who gave her life to her family, her teams and her women.

MLBKevin Kiermaier frustrated as injuries continueBy Marc TopkinTampa Bay TimesST. PETERSBURG „ This season has been quite a pain for Rays centerfielder and centerpiece Kevin Kiermaier. A cold bat, a nagging illness, a searing foul ball well come back to shortly and a torn thumb ligament that required surgery, all in the first 2 weeks, pretty much defined a bad start. The two-plus months he missed recovering and rehabbing felt interminable, especially for someone with his high metabolism and low patience. The rough first couple weeks back, with his thumb barking and his average further dropping, had him wondering what more he could do, and what else could go wrong. Its been a frustrating year, Kiermaier said. I keep saying Im being tested. And now theres more. Just when Kiermaier finally started to feel good for a while at the plate going into the All-Star break, he couldnt have come out of it feeling worse, surrendering to a spike in the pain in his right foot. That it was bad enough for him to take himself out of Fridays game, which he detests and considers embarrassing, was something. That it stemmed from the ball he fouled off his foot nine games into the season „ 15 weeks ago! „ was something else. Its frustrating, he said. I just didnt think an injury that happened April 8 would be an issue to this point today. The injury is a severe bone bruise, which given the way it has lingered seems worse than if he had instead just broken a bone and had to let it heal for the standard 6-8 weeks. Kiermaier hadnt said anything until now, but apparently the pain had been peaking at times since his June 19 return form the DL, more so recently, to push his limits. He figured the fourday break would do him good, especially with plans to spend most of it back home in Indiana relaxing. Friday, he went hard in his first at-bat, stretching a double and then scoring from second. The reward? Kind of the breaking point for me, he said. The good news was that a Saturday morning MRI didnt show anything different and a cortisone shot has Kiermaier counting on this absence being shortterm. He is hoping to be feeling somewhere between 85 and 100 percent when he wakes up Monday and returning to action against the Yankees that night at the Trop „ but thats not certain. Im not happy Im going to miss two more games after what Ive gone through this year so far, Kiermaier said Saturday afternoon. But if thats what it takes for me to feel good the rest of the way Ill take it gladly. Kiermaier knows playing hurt is part of playing in the majors. Every player has to deal with stuff each and every day, he said. But the stuff Ive been dealing with has been a little more than what most people do for the most part. Especially when that includes missing significant parts of three straight seasons with injuries. There was the left hand he broke diving for a ball in 2016 that cost him 48 games. There was the right hip he fractured sliding into first in 2017 that cost him 61 games. And there was that right thumb ligament he tore going headfirst into second this April that cost him 57 games. Its frustrating, he said. It always seems like its always been something with me. That includes a reputation „ deserved or not „ for being fragile, or not tough enough to play through injuries. Kiermaier is aware, and a scroll through social media Saturday would remind with fans calling him GlassmaierŽ and derivatives of porcelain because he always breaks. Me as a speed player, I have to go out there and feel pretty close to 100 percent in what Im asked to do, to provide what I do, offensively, defensively, on the bases, he explained. This miserable season on the field, with a .183 average and .548 OPS, comes at a time when his life off the field appears grand. Kiermaier before last season signed a longterm deal guaranteeing more than $53 million, got married in a pictureperfect November wedding and he and Marisa announced in late April they were expecting this November, adding in May it would be a boy. Life is good, he said. Im not going to let these things affect me. Im very thankful and blessed with what I have going on in my life. Im being tested. These are a few obstacles I have to get around. Ill be just fine. But right now its not a whole lot of fun. JIM DAMASKE, TAMPA BAY TIMESKevin Kiermaier, out for at least two games, with a right foot injury, watches Saturday nights loss from the dugout. By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressMIAMI „ Tony Sparano once beat Bill Belichick with the single wing, but wasnt as old as that made him sound. Sparano was only 56 when he died unexpectedly Sunday. The Minnesota Vikings announced his death in a statement that did not provide a cause. He had been the Vikings offensive line coach since 2016. The most memorable moment in Sparanos 19-year NFL coaching career came in 2008, when he was a rookie head coach with the Miami Dolphins, inheriting a team that had gone 1-15 the previous season. In Week 3 he surprised Belichick with a single wing-style formation that the Dolphins called the wildcat, and they won at New England 38-13. The wildcat became a fad around the league, and the stunning upset propelled Sparanos team to 11 wins and the AFC East title. Its one of two playoff berths for the franchise since 2002. That was Sparanos lone winning season, and he was fired in 2011 after going 29-32 in Miami. He was popular with his players, but a dismal home record, declining attendance and a falling-out with general manager Jeff Ireland accelerated his firing by owner Stephen Ross. Sparano was the Oakland Raiders interim head coach in 2014 after the team fired Dennis Allen, and he went 3-9. He also worked as an assistant for the Browns, Redskins, Jaguars, Cowboys and 49ers, and most recently for Vikings coach Mike Zimmer. I love Tony Sparano,Ž Zimmer said in a statement. He was a great teacher, a grinder of a worker and had a toughness and fighting spirit that showed in our linemen. He was a great husband, father and grandfather and a great friend to me. This is just sinking in for us, but Tony will be sorely missed by all.Ž Sparanos former players also paid tribute. Heart broken and lost for words! We lost a great man,Ž tweeted Brian Hartline, who played receiver for Sparano in Miami.

The entire Cyclones roster traveled from Ames to Marshalltown, making quick work out of a number of tasks on Saturday before catching a breather at a local schoolyard, The Marshalltown TimesRepublican reported. Players did everything from clearing tree limbs and debris, raking yards, moving remnants of houses, rooftops and garages, and removing furniture from damaged homes and businesses. I dont have words for it, you know what I mean?Ž said redshirt freshman offensive lineman Colin Newell. You just put yourself in that position for a second and youre like, wow. We had some guys come up here (Friday) and help out, and they said weve got to get more guys up here and do what we can to help out.

Winnipeg has 48 hours to accept the ruling or turn it down and make Trouba an unrestricted free agent. Trouba, 24, was one of five restricted free agents on the Jets to file for arbitration earlier this month, including Connor Hellebuyck, Adam Lowry, Brandon Tanev and Marko Dano. Trouba had a hearing in Toronto on Friday. Trouba had 24 points during an injury-plagued season with the Jets. The 6-foot-3, 202pound defenseman scored a career-high 33 points in 60 games during 2016-17. He sat out training camp and the start of the season over a dispute with the team, before signing a two-year, $6 million contract that expired on July 1. Trouba was the Jets first-round pick at ninth overall in the 2012 draft. Winnipeg has arbitration hearings pending with Tanev and Dano next week. The team re-signed Lowry to a three-year, $8.75 million contract and Hellebuyck to a six-year, $37 million deal.HOCKEYJets defenseman Jacob Trouba awarded 1-year, $5.5M contractthat uneasy truce could be put to the test as the race enters its decisive phase. Thomas, while not saying he will race against Froome, has made it clear that he is not going to relinquish his shot of winning a first Grand Tour. I think I would have to have a bad day,Ž Thomas said. Its a massive honor just to be wearing (the yellow jersey), but like I have said from the very start, who knows what lies just around the corner?Ž Thomas, Froome, and the rest of the overall contenders slowly rolled across the finish line at Carcassonne and its medieval city walls 13 minutes after stage winner Magnus Cort Nielsen of Denmark. Cort Nielsen claimed his first career win at the Tour after staying ahead of Ion Izagirre and Bauke Mollema in a sprint over the final 200 meters. He finished the hilly 181.5-kilometer (112.7mile) leg from Millau that ended in a long descent to Carcassonne in 4 hours, 25 minutes. I always kept a little back so I was able to respond if they attack,Ž said the 25-year-old Cort Nielsen, who gave Astana back-toback wins the day after teammate Omar Fraile claimed Stage 14. The only sustained attack against Thomas came from Daniel Martin, who is 10th at almost seven minutes behind. He tried a getaway while going up the Pic de Nore climb at 40 kilometers from the finish but was reeled in on the way down. There was also a halfhearted and short-lived attempt by Bardet to slip away on a downhill. We were always in control,Ž Thomas said. We were always in the right place, and its a good day to get done.Ž Thomas and Froome lost one of their support riders for the rest of the way after Gianni Moscon was expelled by race or g anizers for a pp arentl y hitting Elie Gesbert of Team Fortuneo. A breakaway group of 29 riders„ none of which posed a threat to Thomas overall lead„ got away early. Cort Nielsen, Izagirre and Mollema dropped the five other remaining escapees before disputing the stage win among themselves. With all three riders sizing one another up, Cort Nielsen stayed in front of the other two when they broke into a sprint. Rafal Majka was leading the race on the final ascent when he barely avoided a fan who appeared to be pushed onto the road. The man was then almost hit on the back by an authorized motorbike following Majka. Serge Pauwels of Dimension Data was knocked out of the race after breaking his right elbow in a crash near the end.

Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose each made a run with eagles on the par-5 14th hole, McIlroy with a 50-foot putt Rose with a second shot that bounced off the base of the pin. They ran out of holes. Xander Schauffele, the last hope to keep alive the American streak of five straight majors, was one shot behind until he sent a long iron to the right of the 17th and failed to make a 15-foot putt for par. Molinari clinched it with a driver that skirted the edge of a pot bunker, leaving him a lob wedge from 112 yards to 5 feet. He poured it in, raised his right fist and shook it lightly before slamming it for emphasis. Then, he waited in the trailer to see if anyone could catch him. At one point, he went over to the practice green, but not to prepare for a playoff. I probably would have felt sick watching on TV,Ž he said. Molinari finished at 8-under 276, the lowest score in eight Opens at Carnoustie, the course where Jean Van de Velde threw away the British Open with a triple bogey on the last hole in 1999, where Padraig Harrington twice hit into Barry Burn on the last hole to make double bogey and still won. Just disbelief, to be honest,Ž the 35-yearold said. To go the weekend bogey-free, its unthinkable. Playing with Tiger was another challenge. But I felt really good this morning. I felt I was ready for the challenge.Ž Woods had every reason to believe he would cap a most improbable comeback from four back surgeries. His red shirt blazing against the yellow grass of a dry Scottish summer, Woods hit driver into the wind on the par-4 fourth to set up birdie. Into the wind on the par-5 sixth, three deep bunkers to the right and out-of-bounds to the left, he got to the front of the green with a driver and a 3-wood for another birdie. And just like the Woods of old, the players he was chasing started to collapse. Spieth gambled with a shot to clear the burn on No. 6 and went into a gorse bush, making double bogey. Schauffele chopped up the next hole for double bogey. Woods had the lead. And then he lost it with two bad holes. Still in range, he couldnt get close enough for a birdie when it mattered. It was the first time since the 2007 U.S. Open that he trailed going into the final round of a major, had the lead and didnt win. His anger over his mistakes was tempered by perspective, comparing it to Serena Williams losing in the finals at Wimbledon. The beginning of the year, if theyd have said, Youre playing The Open Championship, I would have said Id be very lucky to do that. Serena and I are good friends. Im sure shell probably call me and talk to me about it because youve got to put things in perspective. ... I know that its going to sting for a little bit here, but given where I was to where Im at now, blessed.Ž It might sting even worse for Spieth. One day after a bogey-free round of 65 to share the lead, he had a birdiefree round at the worst time. His best chance was at the 14th, where he three-putted for par from about 40 feet. When you put yourself in position enough times, it goes your way sometimes, it doesnt go your way sometimes,Ž Spieth said, who goes to the PGA Championship in three weeks for a chance at the career Grand Slam.GOLFFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP Monday, July 23, 2018 / The SunBy DAN GELSTONAssociated PressLOUDON, N.H. „ Kevin Harvick used a bump-and-run on Kyle Busch with seven laps left to win a thrilling battle of two of NASCARs dominant drivers Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Harvick aimed his Ford bumper at the right side of Buschs Toyota and nudged the leader out of the way for the move of the race in another stellar showing for the leader of the Big Three. I felt like it was my best opportunity to do what I had to do to win,Ž Harvick said. I didnt want to wreck him. But I didnt want to waste a bunch of time behind him.Ž Added Busch: How you race is you get raced.Ž Harvick raced to his sixth victory of the season and went 1-2 in some order with Busch for the ninth time this year. Busch has five wins and Martin Truex Jr., fourth Sunday, has four. The Big Three were threatened in a race delayed by rain for more than three hours by Aric Almirola, who replaced Danica Patrick in the No. 10 Ford, for a portion of the race. He threatened to crash the party and had his second career Cup victory in sight. He led for more than 40 laps but was derailed by a poor pit stop and spun his tires on a restart that cost him. You think Id be happy,Ž he said. Not in this race. Almirola was the latest also-ran to realize drivers have to be perfect to catch either of the Big Three. Harvick, who won his 43rd career race, was in New Hampshire. Harvick reeled off three straight victories at Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix and went back-to-back in May at Dover and Kansas. It had been seven races since he reached victory lane. He did what he had to do again in the No. 4 Ford to celebrate there again for Stewart-Haas Racing. Here are some items of note from a wet day in New Hampshire. ONE AND DONE New Hampshire hosted its only Cup weekend of the season because track owner Speedway Motorsports Inc. transferred the fall playoff race to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. New Hampshire ran its first Cup race in 1993 and got a second date in 1997. The track will fill the open date in September with the NASCAR Modified Tour and the winner of the marquee Musket 250 race will claim a share of the $181,100 purse. New Hampshire also plans to hold a country music festival in 2019. Many drivers feel the sport would be helped if it stopped racing twice a season at some tracks. Track general manager Dave McGrath said there was a modest ticket bump from Sundays race compared to last July. He did not reveal attendance numbers. Theres no significant drop year over year. Were holding our own,Ž McGrath said. I wish that everybody that was here in September was here in July but I think thats going to take a few years for that to truly take hold. The good news is, that level, steady (crowd) is a big win in my book. That clearly shows were keeping those that we had and its our job now to find that next group to come and be part of the weekend.Ž WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND Loverboy played the pre-race concert in the rain. Loverboys song Heaven in Your EyesŽ was on the Top GunŽ soundtrack in 1986 and Tom Cruise recently started filming the sequel Top Gun: Maverick.Ž That had 80s movie soundtrack fans lovin every minute of wondering if Loverboy also would return for the flick. Lead singer Mike Reno said he recorded a song he hoped would be used in the movie. We recorded it and I sent it out. I dont know if theyre going to take it,Ž Reno said. Im hoping they pick some nice retro music, rather than go with the new stuff. When you listen to the song we recorded for the new Top Gun, you can almost hear the jets flying by.Ž SAFETY FIRST New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung had been scheduled to drive the pace car for the race. I think they need to put me in a real car,Ž Chung said, laughing. Chung declined to discuss the NFLs national anthem debate that was reignited this week.

By JEROME PUGMIREAssociated PressHOCKENHEIM, Germany (AP) „ Lewis Hamilton regained the Formula One championship lead in unexpected and dramatic fashion on Sunday, winning the German Grand Prix after race leader Sebastian Vettel crashed and then surviving an investigation into his own driving. Hamilton was summoned to speak to stewards to explain a move late in the race, where he went to the pits and then aborted his move. He escaped with a reprimand and so kept his win, his fourth this season and 66th overall. Its been the most emotional day, up and down. No one ever wants to go see the stewards because they have the hardest job,Ž a relieved Hamilton said. I was just 100 percent open with them. They could see how confusing it was.Ž The incident came while the safety car was deployed following Vettels sudden crash. Hamilton decided against pitting at the last second and crossed the grass to rejoin the track „ which is prohibited. I just slowed down and trundled over some grass, and tried to join the track as safely as I could,Ž said Hamilton, who finished ahead of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. Governing body FIA said it cleared Hamilton „ who faced a 5-second time penalty which would have handed Bottas the victory „ because driver and the team candidly admitted the mistakeŽ and at no time was there any danger to any other competitor.Ž Earlier, heavy rain played havoc at the Hockenheimring as Vettel misjudged a basic entry into a turn and slid over the gravel into the barriers with 15 laps to go.AUTO RACINGHamilton wins German GP as rival Vettel crashes lateAssociated PressLONDON „ World champion Karsten Warholm used the absence of Qatar rival Abderrahman Samba to finally win a 400-meter hurdles at the Anniversary Games on Saturday. And in a Norwegian record, too. Warholm was runner-up to Samba in the previous Diamond League meetings in Rome, Oslo, Stockholm, Paris, and Lausanne. But Samba preferred to try the 400 without hurdles at London Stadium, and registered a personalbest in coming fifth. Warholm won the hurdles comfortably in 47.65, more than half a second off Sambas best this year. Meanwhile, Abdallelah Haroun won the 400 in a Qatar-record 44.07. In the womens 100meter final, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won in 10.98 seconds, her season best. The Jamaican, a twotime Olympic champion, had a baby boy last August.RUNNINGWarholm exploits Samba absence to win London 400 hurdles Associated PressGSTAAD, Switzerland „ Top-seeded Alize Cornet of France won her sixth career title by beating Mandy Minella of Luxembourg 6-4, 7-6 (6) in the Ladies Championship Gstaad final on Sunday. Minella, playing in her first final on tour at age 32, was seeking to become the third mother to win a WTA singles title in the past year. The 48th-ranked Cornet did not drop a set all week in the Swiss Alps clay-court event to win her first title since January 2016, at the Hobart International in Australia. Cornet won five of the 20 break points she held against the 226thranked Minella. The 28-year-old Frenchwoman clinched the first set with a dropshot winner, and saved two set points in the second-set tiebreaker.TENNISTop-seeded Alize Cornet beats Mandy Minella in Gstaad clay-court “ nalBy KEN POWTAKAssociated PressNEWPORT, R.I. „ Steve Johnson continued his long road back and success this year by capturing the Hall of Fame Open on Sunday. The 28-year-old American defeated Ramkumar Ramanathan, of India, 7-5, 3-6, 6-2, on Newports grass court for his fourth career ATP title and second this season. When it was over, Johnson pointed to the sky and pumped his fist before going over to the far corner of the court to give his coach, Craig Boynton, a handshake and hug. Hes seen me when I was (ranked) 200 and losing first rounds of challengers, questioning playing tennis and now hes seen me winning titles and finals of 500s,Ž Johnson said. The highs and lows, hes stuck with it.Ž Ranked 48th coming into the week, Johnson added to his title in Houston this year. Its been a nice rebound after he lost his father, Steve Sr. to a heart attack last year. His Dad, who had been his coach until Johnson went to college, traveled and watched him at all his tourneys. Its been an emotional couple of years,Ž he said to the crowd during an interview at the end of the match. Now, Johnson, who reached as high as No. 21 in the world in 2016, will be ranked 34th beginning the week. Asked if he could crack the Top 25, he said: (Ive) done it before.Ž Johnson broke in the second game of the final set, hitting a forehandcross winner to close the game. Steve was best, hitting some forehands today,Ž said the 23-year-old Ramanathan, who was seeking his first ATP title. He played a good third set and had the better of me.ŽTENNISJohnson captures Hall of Fame on grass courtAP PHOTOAlize Cornet of France, returns a ball to Mandy Minella of Luxembourg, during the final game at the WTA Ladies Championship tennis tournament in Gstaad, Switzerland.
