NEWS WIREGood morning To Daniel Eichenberger Thanks for reading! TheNewsSunBy MELISSA MAINStaff WriterSEBRING „ Kristie Vazquez, executive director of Sebrings Community Redevelopment Agency, kept her promise to help rev up activity downtown. Vazquez helped bring back the Circle of Speed, an event that had been dropped, and added the 12 Hour Fan Fest and the CRAs Rockin 50s Block Party, which helped kick off the inaugural Sebring Soda Fest. In addition, the CRA held two Food Trucks & Flicks events, which will become Movies in the Park; the CRA will continue to offer movies, but the organization will no longer include the food trucks. With the new 12 Hour Fan Fest event, we had approximately 1,500 people downtown,Ž Vazquez said. We had transporters, giant semis that carry race cars, a parade almost two miles from the race track to downtown.Ž According to Vazquez, the event was a huge success. She plans to bring additional events downtown during the upcoming year, including Music in the Park, Cize on the Circle and a Farmers Market. Since Highlands County is brimming with local talent, Vazquez plans to offer live entertainment downtown when the weather is nice, avoiding the summer rains and heat. The CRA plans to partner with an agricultural group to bring a farmers market downtown. While people are enjoying the downtown events, they will be able to stop by the Childrens Museum of the Highlands and see the renovations that are scheduled to begin soon. The CRA has pledged funds in support of the renovation, because the museum will encourage economic activity downtown. The CRA is taking its own advice and moving downtown to 309 Circle Park Drive. This of“ ce was previously the downtown of“ ce for the Sebring Chamber of Commerce. The CRA was able to get the same lease as the chamber, leasing the building for just $1 and saving $7,000 a year on the lease at 368 S. Commerce Ave. Of“ ce space will be added, because the chamber of commerce did not have separate of“ ce space for employees. The CRA will add new ” ooring and fresh paint to update the aesthetic appearance. We will be investing downtown, like we are asking everyone else to do,Ž Vazquez said. This building puts us in the heart of the CRA district. We will be more visible to the community, and we will still offer visitor information at our of“ ce, but we will now include CRA information.Ž Vazquez has spearheaded the process to update grant programs that encourage people to renovate buildings downtown. We are putting aggressive funds behind programs for the upcoming year,Ž she said. Instead of a $5,000-$25,000 budget, we will have a $100,000 „ $150,000 budget for the new year. We are consolidating the grant programs for CRA director leads the way in making changes downtown VAZQUEZ By PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING „ Friday saw another torrential afternoon downpour “ lling up retention ponds and swales and, in one case, blowing car dealer saleŽ signs down U.S. 27. Some areas hit by the rains have caught and held water, ” ooding despite the fact that the rain, as heavy as it was, didnt last long and shouldnt have ” ooded streets. County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. agrees: Such rains shouldnt ” ood streets, but he said a combination of several years of above-average rain coupled with under-designed drainage in some subdivisions have exposed ” aws in drainage that neither the county nor residents can afford to “ x on their own. Sadly, he said, even if affected residents and the county pool resources, they often dont have enough spare cash to cover immediately needed improvements, let alone long-term projects. We get a lot of requests for drainage improvements,Ž Howerton said. Its been especially high since Hurricane Irma, where rains during and immediately following the storm showed how previously functional drainage systems in places like Placid Lakes, Sebring Hills and Sebring Country Estates no longer functioned. Howerton argues that they never really worked in the “ rst place, because they didnt have to. A lot of subdivisions were built before (there was) a real design for drainage,Ž Howerton said. (Residents) suffer because as development continues, a lot of problems are popping up.Ž Plus, as more homes get built, he said, more people move into the areas that experience ” ooding and see it “ rst-hand. Their houses, raised on mounds to avoid being ” ooded out, displace water that would ” ow into their property, sending it to other lots. Where there are drainage easements behind peoples homes, some residents have “ lled in the ditches or low spots, which has also backed water up on others properties.

By MELISSA MAINStaff WriterLAKE PLACID „ The 18th Annual Grape Stomp drew hundreds of visitors from out of town to visit Henscratch Farms on Saturday. The popular festival sometimes draws up to 1,000 visitors, depending on the weather. The most popular part of the event was the metal tub “ lled with grapes that provides visitors a chance to participate in the wine-making process. At each festival, attendees stomp 2,000 pounds of grapes. Saturday, before they entered the tub, they removed their shoes, washed their feet off with a water hose and then stepped into the large metal container. Before they commenced stomping the scuppernong and muscadine grapes, a photographer took their pictures. Once pictures were taken, the grape stomping began. After they stepped out of the tub, their feet were rinsed off again, and they browsed through their pictures to chose the best one to be placed on a wine label. Country White, Golden Sunrise, Red Rooster and Raspberry Southern Sippin were just a few of the wines people were able to choose from. Local residents had the option of picking up their wine, but out-of-town guests usually chose the shipping option. It takes three months for the wine to ferment, so the bottles of wine are ready around late November, which is great for perfect timing for the gift-giving season. Children and adults stomped grapes and fed the free-range chickens Cheerios. The children enjoyed throwing the Cheerios to the chickens that often hid underneath the gift shop. Participants also enjoyed picking the scuppernong and muscadine grapes from the 10 1/2-acre vineyard. When guests needed a rest from standing on their feet, they sat on bales of hay underneath a large tent and listened to country songs from Redneck Joe Band. The band is a local favorite from Lake Placid, and they played Seminole WindŽ by John Anderson and Dont Close Your EyesŽ by Keith Whitely, along with many others. Henscratch Farms served wine for the guests to enjoy while listening to the band. Participants were also served wine in the round silo winery. The line for wine and snacks ran out the door. Smokin Ds Bar-B-Que from Tampa served ribs, chicken, pulled pork, brisket, beans and sides. The tender barbecue was a hit with festival participants. For those who were not fans of barbecue, the festival also served hot dogs, chips and lemonade for $3. A variety of Hersheys ice cream ” avors were available, and participants could also choose ” oats, sundaes or smoothies to satisfy MELISSA MAIN/STAFF WRITERHenscratch Farms has 10 1/2 acres of grapes. They harvest 4-6 tons per acre. People can pick their own grapes at Henscratch. The grapes were $0.99 per pound at the festival. Sean and Ashley Myer came from Ft. Lauderdale to stomp grapes at the festival. Sweetpea Jones and Redneck Joe, from the Redneck Joe Band, delighted the audience with country songs at the 18th Annual Grape Stomp.

Board member Dan Stegall called the special meeting on Aug. 10 to discuss the golf fees. However, the rates will not be “ nalized until the public hearing on Aug. 31. We did not have a balanced budget last year,Ž Camp said. To maintain the the course at the level our community wants it to be, there needs to be an increase in fees. We need to have a consistent way at arriving at rates,Ž Camp added. The board was trying to increase the overall revenue of the golf course to approximately $1.8 million. The members discussed a 5 percent rate increase. Ray Brooks gave a heated response to Finance Director Omar DeJesus, with a Youre wrong,Ž as DeJesus attempted to explain his spreadsheet with the proposed golf fees. Board members instead chose to use the spreadsheet Brooks designed and made changes to it. Stegall said: When you look at the money weve spent on the golf course, a “ ve percent increase is not much.Ž Camp agreed. You will always get someone who will complain about an increase in fees, but this didnt get to be a great course without spending money.Ž The board pointed out that pine straw and shell were added to the course to improve the aesthetics, and the courses were better maintained than in the past. For a full family membership for people over 50 years old, the fees, including trail, are proposed to increase by $217.65, for a total of $4,570.65. Working families who do not have as much time to spend on the course will receive a lower proposed fee of $2,513.86. However, this is an increase of $158.70. Member who are over 80 will also get a break on pricing. For youth under 18, the proposed fee is $319.65, a $61.95 increase. Besides golf fees, the board also tackled drainage issues. The new budget has $350,000 for improving roads and drainage. Camp expressed his desire to hear a break down of the 11 projects that are proposed to deal with this drainage issue. Other budget issues discussed were a new kitchen for Island View restaurant. Stegall said, Before I can vote on a new kitchen, I need to know if it makes economic sense. I need to see a business plan.Ž At the end of the meeting, board members also expressed frustration about not being allowed to talk to each other outside of public meetings due to the Sunshine Laws in Florida.

PAGE 3 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3 By MARC VALEROStaff WriterAVON PARK „ Despite the rainy season, the intersection rebuild at U.S. 27 and State Road 64 in Avon Park is on schedule, according to a Florida Department of Transportation spokesman. The improvements include installing concrete pavement at the intersection itself with the road outside the intersection repaved in asphalt, said FDOT District I Communications Manager Zach Burch. What motorists may be seeing now is the new right turn lane from eastbound State Road 64 to southbound U.S. 27, he said. Also, there will be improvements or a new lane in the right turn from southbound U.S. 27 to west bound State Road 64. The project includes new traf“c signals, with what appears to be at least two cameras mounted above one of the signals. Burch said the cameras would be for traf“c detection to help the signal operate. They are not for recording video of the intersection. After accidents people ask if there are any recordings from the cameras, but none of the cameras record, he said. They help detect traf“c at the intersection and interact with the timing of the signal. The project will replace existing roadway with concrete pavement on U.S. 27 southbound from West Pleasant Street to Paulk Street, U.S. 27 northbound from Dyal Street to West Hill Street and on S.R. 64 from Self Avenue to U.S. 27 in Avon Park. The contractor will also be milling and resurfacing the existing roadway on U.S. 27 from West Townsend Street to Batts Street and on S.R. 64 from Collier Avenue to Self Avenue, installing curb and gutter, installing traf“c separators, sidewalks, traf“c signals, street lights and signing and pavement markers. The $8 million project, which started in June, will be “nished probably in late 2019 so it has a ways to go, Burch said.AP intersection work on schedule The cameras that are part of the intersection improvements at U.S. 27 and State Road 64 in Avon Park are used for detecting trac to help control the signal timing. The $8 million project at the intersection of U.S. 27 and State Road 64 includes a new right-turn lane from eastbound State Road 64 to southbound U.S. 27.

PAGE 5 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A5The following is an E-mail from Douglas Jewell of New Jersey telling about the golf course at the Kenilworth Lodge Country Club with the following: I happened to have worked at the golf course the last year it was in existence (1971-72). The Roses from Newton, Massachusetts owned the golf course. I worked for the head golf pro Bob Baldassari.Ž Your column brought back memories of dressing up for dinner and interacting with those that worked in the kitchen, barber shop and salon plus the band members and local caddies. Im now retired and am ful“lling my promise to return to Sebring someday. Sebring has changed but my memories from 45 years ago draw me back.Ž The golf course was a par 72, 18-hole course with each hole lined with orange trees, grapefruit and tangelo trees. At the end of their stay the visiting golfers would stuff their golf bags with fresh picked fruit to take home.Ž The golf shop crew consisted of Bob Baldassari and assistant pro Ron Pedi, starter/ caddiemaster Jim Talley, myself running the bag room and the practice range. The local Vollbracht sisters, Myra and Debbie shining shoes. There were no days off in the four month season.Ž My favorite caddies were the Harris Brothers 86 and 84 years old, both deacons. They were rippled with muscles and “t as 20 year olds. They both worked at building many of the original roads back in the 1920s. They told tales of being snakers,Ž meaning they went ahead of the road builders gathering up snakes in burlap bags, often wading up to their armpits in the swamps. And tales of men being sucked up by quicksand never to be seen again.Ž There was quite a rivalry between Harder Hall and Kenilworth golf courses. The head pro at Harder Hall was Ben Roman Victor. He was also part owner. There was a lot of one upmanship at Alexs Circle Bar downtown Sebring as we (the staff) from both hotels were all regular diners there. Each hotel wanted to get the most famous pros to play at their golf course. The PGA tour and golf pros were in Florida in January and Feb and race week was in March. It was race drivers and celebrities that were vied for and bragged about. It was good natured competition as we were all friends and played together. But the rivalry was always there between the two hotels.Ž Bill Norcross a Boston transplant writes: PGA Golf Pro Billy Max was assistant at the Kenilworth or Harder Hall golf course. I believe it was in the 60s when the PGA Golf Pros Tour came south every year.Ž Kenilworth Lodge Country Club as it was called and Harder Hall were both located in Sebring. The third course is in Avon Park noted Bill Norcross. Pinecrest had the “rst live broadcast PGA golf tournament. Also a PGA executive course and a Pro from Rhode Island (Bruno) who lived there.Ž Pinecrest Hotel was taken down a few years ago. Today it is the Pinecrest Golf Club.

A6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 13, 2018 VIEWPOINTS HIGHLANDSNEWS-SUN YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER SINCE 1919Tim Smolarick Publisher Romona Washington Executive Editor Cliff Yeazel Advertising Director Rob Kearley Circulation Director Donna Scherlacher Multi-Media/Production Director SUNOUR VIEW JOIN THE CONVERSATIONLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules. We will not accept any Letters to the Editor that mention a business in a negative tone, as they have no means to defend themselves. Please keep Letters to the Editor to less than 250 words. Letters will be edited to length as well as for grammar and spelling. All letters must be signed with full name … not initials. An address and telephone number must be included. The phone number and address are not for publication, but must be provided. In the case of letters that are emailed, the same rules apply. Due to the number of letters received, we are able to run only four letters per person per month. The Letters to the Editor section is designed as a public forum for community discourse, and the opinions and statements made in letters are solely those of the individual writers. The newspaper takes no responsibility for the content of these letters. Please send or bring correspondence to the Highlands News-Sun, Letters to the Editor, 315 US 27 North Sebring, FL 33870, or fax to 863-385-1954. Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to This morning may be a little more hectic than usual in a lot of households in Highlands County. Today is the first day of the 2018-19 school year and children and parents alike are trying to find their new routine that will be a way of life for the next nine months. With this, we want to remind motorists to use extreme caution this morning and this afternoon. There will be 89 school buses sharing the roads today, trying to get the children to class on time and return them safely to home this afternoon. Not only are there buses to deal with, but there will be children walking on the edge of roads, or standing at bus stops, that havent been there for the past several weeks. Some of those children may be little ones who have never ridden a school bus before. They will excited and nervous, trying to remember all of the rules that have been shared with them. School Board of Highlands County Transportation Director David Solomon assures us that all safety procedures for operating buses on U.S. 27 have been reviewed. There are five stops on the busy highway. One of those stops was the site of an accident last December in which a stopped school bus was rear-ended by a semi truck. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries. Florida Department of Transportation has been asked to also conduct a safety survey of the U.S. 27 stops, but there has been no response to the School Districts request. The state agency did, however, place bus stop signs at those five stops on U.S. 27. We hope the FDOT responds to the School Districts request before another accident involving a school bus happens. The first buses will take to the road at 6 this morning, running the elementary bus routes first, followed by the middle and high school routes. It is mindful to also remember that a lot of parents will accompany their children to school on the first few days of a new school year. They want to make sure their child knows where they are going, and are comfortable making that trip on campus alone. As the week goes on, there may be more children at those school bus stops than there will be today. A few good reminders for motorists: When those stop arms come out, no cars should go past the bus. Motorists must stop unless they are on a highway that has a median and are traveling on the other side of the median from the bus. Drivers should always follow the speed limit and slow down in school zones and near bus stops. Remember to stay alert and look for kids who may be trying to get to or from the school bus. Slow down and stop if youre driving near a school bus that is flashing yellow or red lights. This means the bus is either preparing to stop (yellow) or already stopped (red), and children are getting on or off. In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection. Lets remember to watch for the children, and obey all safety rules when driving near bus stops, school buses or schools. This is one thing that we can all do to help make this a safer year for our school students.Lets do our partYOUR VIEWThree commandmentsLive by three commandments I live by three commandments „ love, honesty, justice. All my life I fought for justice. Since moving to Florida in 1997 I have fought a hospital, a veterans association, a school and now a couple who refused me when I cried out twice, Please say a prayer for me. I am terri“ ed and petri“ ed.ŽMary Ann Tricsko Sotero Lake PlacidWrong wordSocialism is a word we are hearing more of today than in the past. Young people may think this is a new way for government to go, but be advised it is de“ nitely the wrong course to follow. We live in a democratic capitalist country and most of us like it that way. Hillary (Im sorry Mrs. Clinton, dont mean to be a name dropper here) ran around the country for 18 months spouting everything will be free, we will just tax the rich. Now, she never claimed to be a socialist, but here comes Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist, offering Medicare for everyone at a government estimate of $3.1 trillion, free. Jefferson and Hamilton started this two-party system in the 1770s and today we still have this big division between small government with people being responsible for their own success and large government that wants to take care of you from changing your diapers to planting you in the ground. Socialism is the big government that wants to control your every move. Remember what the government giveth, the government can taketh away.Ž Remember the title, The Union of Soviet Socialist Republicans.Ž Well, how well did that work out? Be wary of any politician talking social welfare; it is not the way to go. As an odd reminder, when some candidate says it is free, cover your wallet.Hal Graves SebringLower speed limit not goodDoes anyone do the research before making these ridiculous speed changes? What is 5 mph going to do? Probably cause more accidents, according to national studies. Less than 2.2 percent of accidents are caused by speed. Speed limits should be based on sound traf“ c-engineering principles that consider responsible motorists actual travel speeds. Typically, this should result in speed limits set at the 85th percentile speed of free-” owing traf“ c (the speed under which 85 percent of traf“ c is traveling). These limits should be periodically adjusted to re” ect changes in actual traf“ c speeds. Q. Isnt slower always safer? A. No, federal/state studies consistently show the drivers most likely to get into accidents in traf“ c are those traveling signi“ cantly below the average speed. According to an Institute of Transportation Engineers Study, those driving 10 mph slower than the prevailing speed are six times as likely to be involved in an accident. Q. Dont higher speed limits cause more accidents and traf“ c fatalities? A. No, if a speed limit is raised to re” ect real travel speeds, the new higher limit will make the roads safer. When the majority of traf“ c is traveling at the same speed, traf“ c ” ow improves, and there are fewer accidents. Speed alone is rarely the cause of accidents. Differences in speed are the main problem. Reasonable speed limits help traf“ c to ” ow at a safer, more uniform pace. Q. Arent most traf“ c accidents caused by speeding? A. No, research conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation showed that the percentage of accidents actually caused by speeding is very low, 2.2 percent So what this says is, lowering the speed limit on U.S.27 will have no bearing on accidents statistically. You will have 50mph drivers, 60mph drivers, and 30 and 40mph drives who will still be the ones statistically causing the accidents. Other changes proposed will help reduce accidents like closures of some crossover sections, and much more law enforcement.John Nelson Sebring When I “ rst started working for the newspaper many moons ago, the reporters wrote their stories on a typewriter. Now, before anyone gets too smart out there, the typewriters were electronic. I will confess, however, to learning to type on an old manual typewriter. Kids today wont have any idea what Im even talking about. In fact, they may not even know what a typewriter is. We would take our typed stories to the editor, who would mark the stories up with their red ink pens and then those versions would go to the typesetter, who would quickly type the story out on a computer that was very loud. The story would translate to small holes punched in a long, inch-wide tape that I called ticker tape. I dont know if that was the correct thing to call it, but thats what I called it. That tape was then fed into another computer that would translate those punched holes into text on a photographic paper that was about three inches wide, and that was what was waxed and pastedŽ onto the sheet that would eventually turn into a page in the newspaper. Making corrections to anything that was typed by the typesetter was another challenge and one that required sharp focus by the person who was putting the correction on. I have to say that Clara Boatwright and the late Lloyd Jones were the best at typesetting, dealing with corrections and laying out the stories on pages. I learned a lot in my early days from watching these two work their magic. We didnt have computers to deal with. We had never heard of the internet, let alone Google. We knew clouds only to be those things up in the sky that could be pretty when looking like cotton or ugly when you knew they were full of rain and lightning. To say things have changed would be a slight understatement. It seems like everything has changed. Now we write stories on a computer that we can go back and edit ourselves before it even goes to an editor. That editor can also edit the stories on the computer, eliminating a lot of paper. No longer is a true typesetter needed. No longer is the ticker tape needed. No longer is the photographic paper needed, since all of our pages are now designed on computers as well. Research has become more advanced and we are dedicated to getting our stories correct. We have also been introduced to that massive cloudŽ where we store photos, work within software programs, and put a whole lot of trust that we once wouldnt have. The past few weeks, the newsroom staff at the Highlands News-Sun has been busy learning a new editorial system. Weve been begging for something newer and better than what we had, but like any other push for something different there has been a learning curve that we are in the middle of. Perhaps you have noticed some changes in the way your newspaper looks this past week. We hope it hasnt been too much for you to adjust to. We cant promise that this is the way its always going to look. Were still making some tweaks here and there. The real exciting thing is that our website will be changing in this process. It will be more inviting to the common user. We will once again allow for comments to be made on stories, but will warn that the comments must be civil. There is no need to share any attacks of character on our website. Just like with the print version, we will still be making minor tweaks as we go along. We have promised you all along that we will continue to improve our products for you, our valued readers. Were always open to hear your suggestions, so dont be shy.Our work continues to evolve AT RANDOMRomona Washington

The goal was to make the programs more encompassing, offer more assistance and be easier to understand.Ž In order to help people learn about the grants that are offered, the CRA plans to redesign its website and make it more user friendly. With our new website, people will be able to see properties that are available downtown,Ž Vazquez said. Highlands County Economic Development Council paid for the program, which will allow people to look up properties downtown. Visitors will see current results, instead of outdated information, Vazquez explained. The CRA knows that downtown will be a more appealing place to be if it is visually appealing to investors and business owners. The CRA has developed a scheduled maintenance plan for ensuring the beauty of the downtown area. The agency is “nalizing plans to improve the appearance of downtown by pressure washing, redoing landscaping, updating the parking lots in the district and installing outdoor caf seating. The CRA is partnering with the City of Sebring in improving the aesthetics of the area. The City of Sebring is preparing to submit an application for street improvements to the Florida Development of Economic Opportunity to help with neighborhood revitalization. The CRA has committed $50,000 to be used toward the completion of the proposed street improvement activities, Vazquez said. If Sebrings application receives funding, all sidewalks and curbs will be replaced on Orange Street, Rose Avenue, Violet Avenue, Nasturtium Avenue and Pine Street. In addition, the project application includes milling and resurfacing of these streets. The CRA has submitted an application with PetSafe, hoping to bring the “rst dog park to the city. Vazquez is excited about the dog park, because it will bring people downtown. However, she is thrilled that the Nan-ces-o-wee project has been revived because of its potential for downtown revival. She is hopeful that the developer will be able to secure funding for the historic hotel. Tony Collins, the developer, plans to turn the hotel into apartments, which would bring in people to shop and dine downtown. In the upcoming year, Vazquez plans to have more activities on the waterfront, including updating the City Pier. She also wants to add water events, a splash pad and a portable water park.

Send correspondence to PAGE 1A he also got a lot more complaints and concerns from residents whose homes were not ”ooded, but found key roads to their homes covered in water. It shows how subdivisions drainage designs are not adequate, he said, and must be retro“tted. Fixing the problems takes funding, not just for the actual work, but to study the problem, develop plans, and most of all, Howerton said, to work with water management districts to make sure the plans dont dump water on someone else. Then, theres also the problem of private property versus public easements and right of way. Crystal Lake Club and Silver Fox rural subdivision also experienced drainage problems from Irma and afterward. Silver Fox residents have had problems with recent rains washing out their roads. They went to talk to county commissioners last Tuesday to ask for help. However, the county cant do anything for them at this time, Howerton said. All their roads are either private right of ways „ where the county is forbidden by law to do improvement „ or are not on the countys maintenance list. Howerton said “xing drainage will have to include the roads, not only because the two use the same right of way but also because “xing one and not the other results in damage to both. The county has a road maintenance program, with plans to add a certain number of miles of unpaved road per year, but its hit a roadblock. Weve had four to “ve meetings (on it),Ž Howerton said. We get to the point of how to fund it, and it stops.Ž One solution is the “nd money in the county budget, but county commissioners have insisted on a balanced budget with no funds from reserves. County Administrator Randy Vosburg has presented them with a balanced “ve-year capital “nancial strategy „ road and building infrastructure plan „ but that meant cutting back on how often roads will get maintained and how many more roads will be added to the annual list. Another solution would be to ask affected residents to pay for improvements either in cash or through an annual assessment. The residents in Silver Fox who suffer most from bad roads and no drainage dont have enough among themselve to cover the estimated $300,000-$500,000 price tag, as stated Tuesday by Road and Bridge Director Kyle Green. Howerton said that leaves what Green suggested on Tuesday: A countywide drainage assessment. That would be a hard sell, Howerton said. People who buy homes on paved roads, with established stormwater drainage systems, wont likely agree to be assessed to “x problems for people who bought on unpaved roads with no ditches or gutters, he said. Silver Fox residents told commissioners how heavy rains in early July standed relatives at their homes. Susan Dillow of Foal Path, a private road cut through her property to provide access for several other residents, said heavy rains on Aug. 3 and a rutted road hampered efforts to drive her husband to the hospital, with two young grandchildren riding with them. Commissioners said Tuesday they couldnt do anything at this time, because they cant work on private roads and the county doesnt have the money. Residents accused them of not caring about them. None of us (in government) want to raise taxes. We dont want to do that at all,Ž Howerton said Friday. We simply dont have enough (funds) to do anything. It kills us to say we cant do anything because we dont have the funds. We do care,Ž Howerton added. We got into this (work) because we care.Ž Some subdivisions dont have these problems, like Sun N Lake or Spring Lake improvement districts, but thats because they have supervisory boards with authority to levy assessments for roads, drainage and other improvements. One of the areas that saw no street or home ”ooding from Irma, Howerton said, was Spring Lake, which recently put in a huge stormwater storage area to the north, with state water management approval. Howerton said Silver Fox residents could set up something like that. Clarifying what he said on Tuesday, Howerton said one property owner whose land contains a bayhead swamp could apply to the water management district to use it as a water storage area. Highlands County would not be on the application, but could help him work with state agencies to make it happen. Also, Howerton said, the landowner would have to hire a private construction “rm to build the drainage system, to be reimbursed by the state, because „ as he said „ the county cant work on private property.DRAINAGEFROM PAGE 1A COURTESY GRAPHIC/HIGHLANDS COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERSOn a graph of annual rainfall dating back to 1969, Archbold Biological Station has recorded several periods of wet and dry spells lasting from two to ve years each.

The street where Scott Beigel grew up in Dix Hills, New York, was dedicated as Scott J. Beigel WayŽ on Saturday. Its original name was Hart Place. New York Lt. Gov.

Francis, driving the No. 98 Frameless Shower Doors Ford Mustang, would start the race in seventh position but surged into second position on the “rst lap under green taking advantage of jostling between cars at the front of the “eld.

Sitting fourth in the points standings, Power knows hes going to have to make a big run down the stretch to battle for the No. 1 plate. Its been very up and down,Ž Power said. But as far as the championship goes, had great speed, great qualifying. Just had too many DNFs basically. I was 70 points out coming into the month of May. I left the month of May leading the championship.Ž But since then, its been a tough road for Power, who was taken out of the DXC Technology 600 after contact and had a mechinal breakdown after just seven laps in the following race. More issues saw him limp home to an 18th-place “nish in the Honda Indy Toronto raqce, leaving him 87 points behind Scott Dixon. Alexander Rossi is second with 448 points and Josef Newgarden is third with 434 points. Obviously, Newgarden and Rossi are very reachable,Ž Power said. But Dixon, we need him to have a bad run, simple as that.

I knew the car had the pace in it, but we struggled with the car in qualifying since Im running TA and TA2 this weekend. On the “rst lap everyone struggled a bit; and we were able to get up to second pretty easily, from there we just followed Fix running consistent laps and putting some pressure on him. We hit some lapped traf“c and they got tangled up a bit and put some grass on the track and wed need to come in and clean off the radiators„ we just wanted to be the “rst to do so and make it.

PAGE 11 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B1Dont you hate it when youre introduced and you cant remember the persons name? What about remembering whether or not you already told someone that story? Its like one day you go from young to old! This stuff seems to happen more and more as you age. Why does it happen to some of us, and not to others? Ive wondered. I think it has to do with elevated homocysteine, at least in part. Emerging research about homocysteine connects it to neuro“brillary tangles, and those are associated with progressive memory disorders like Alzheimers. Did you know that NSAIDs and oral contraceptives are strong drug muggers of folate? If you deplete folate (vitamin B9), you block your methylation cycle, homocysteine builds up and memory becomes impaired. Perhaps maintaining brain function is related to declining levels of another B vitamin called methylcobalamin.Ž Its also known as vitamin B12, a nutrient that is manufactured by your intestinal ”ora. Today, health food stores and online e-tailers offer various supplements that you can buy overthe-counter, but of course ask your doctor whats right for you. I couldnt possibly know whats right for each of you and this article reaches million of people, so again, “nd out if these simple nutritional “xes are ideal for you: Acetyl L-Carnitine The amino acid Acetyl-LCarnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily than regular plain L-Carnitine, and it helps the body make acetylcholine, the brains super neurotransmitter that is necessary for healthy mood and optimal cognitive function, as well as muscle health, a side bene“t. Lions Mane A 2014 study concluded that Lions Mane promotes the growth of nerve cells in the brain. Lions mane increases NGF (Nerve Growth Factor), which then encourages the growth of new neurites. NGF encourages neurons to connect to each other, communicate better and simply put, this helps you learn faster and remember things better. Bacopa Monnieri Bacopa monnieri exerts a strong protective effect on the brain because it inhibits the production of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, and acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that you want a lot of in your brain. Gotu Kola Gotu kola may help to increase the growth of neurons, promoting brain function, reducing mental fatigue, and supporting memory. Phosphatidylserine Phosphatidylserine begin to decline with age. It helps connect the wiresŽ upstairs and improve nerve impulse “ring. Green Tea Its found in green tea, and EGCG can cross the blood-brain barrier. A 2012 study in mice found that supplemental EGCG promotes brain plasticity in the hippocampus area of the brain. Today should be an important day for you, particularly if youre now really thinking seriously about your memory for the “rst time.

Foodborne illnesses send roughly 128,000 Americans to the hospital each year, and account for 3,000 deaths annually, states the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Roughly one in six people will get sick from a food theyve consumed this year. Food poisoning may occur when foods are not properly washed or cooked to adequate temperatures to kill pathogens. After eating foods that have been sitting out at room temperature for too long, which enables pathogens to multiply, people can easily get sick. Sometimes people get sick from food that has spoiled in the refrigerator or even in its original packaging. Learning about food spoilage and related illnesses can help people avoid falling victim to food poisoning. Why food spoils Food can spoil for many different reasons. Moisture: Foods that have a high water content can decompose more quickly than those that dont. Moisture in foods allows microorganisms to dissolve food they use, and can cause chemical reactions to occur in foods. Molding, caking and lumping of products can result from humidity or moisture getting into drier foods. Condensation can cause bacteria and molds to grow. Oxygen: Oxidative spoilage can cause loss of fats and fatty portions of foods. Oxygen can affect food colors, and compromise the nutritional value and ”avor of certain foods. Vacuum packaging keeps air out of foods to prevent spoilage.

Food labels can be complex and include various terms that may be unknown to consumers. Understanding these terms can help people make sound decisions regarding the foods they eat. Cage free: Eggs labeled cage freeŽ means that the hens that laid the eggs were not raised in caged housing systems, which the Humane Society of the United States has described as inhumane. The organization Food and Water Watch notes that living conditions for hens raised in cage-free environments may still be poor.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 13, 2018 Lets work our minds a little bit this morning! We all know the saying to stop and smell the roses. So, along with enjoying the smell of the ” owers lets do a little exercise together. Look around ... where are you sitting? Are you drinking coffee? Maybe you dont drink coffee and you are having a Diet Coke instead. Are you cooking breakfast or perhaps already done eating it? Listen. What sounds do you hear? The clock? TV? Mens voices or womens ... both? Are there smells with the sounds? Anything cooking? Bacon frying? Can you hear the sounds? What does the silverware sound like? Is it clinking and sharp or just a soft tingŽ? How about the sound of the newspaper when you turn the page ... you can hear it, right? Count how many sounds you hear. Work your brain this morning. What else is associated with the sound? For example: the toaster. The toast wakes up your sense of smell and also your appetite. If your spouse is cooking it, then it sends feel-good/love endorphins to your brain. These endorphins may send you into other good thoughts. Then the toaster pops up and the toast hits the plate. Hear it ... and the sound of the knife scraping the butter and jelly? It starts to melt and ahhh, the smell. What are you eating on ... paper, plastic, ceramic, maybe just using a paper towel? They all make sounds when they are set down. Listen. Can you hear these sounds? Can your spouse? Chewing, swallowing, picking up and setting your glass down. Maybe your ring makes a clinking sound on the glass. Gulp, gulp. Hear the swallowing in your ears? Ok ... go! Your turn. Take 10 minutes and stimulate your brain. Make it a competition if you have someone with you. How many things can you hear? Who “ nds the most sounds? Describe the sounds to each other. Dont take your sense of hearing and your cognitive ability to interpret your surroundings for granted. If you notice that you or your spouse cannot hear sounds properly then it is time to get a hearing evaluation. Memory loss and dementia are linked to untreated hearing loss.Ž Give your brain and hearing a tune-up. To hear better is to live better. Roseann B.

Always talk to your doctor before following any medical advice or starting a diet or exercise program.Giving our brains a tune-upHEARING MATTERSRoseann Kiefer Spinal stenosis is a degenerative condition characterized by narrowing of the spinal canal. The spinal canal is a tubular opening that runs most of the length of the spine and contains the spinal cord. The spinal canal is bordered by the joints of the spine (facet joints), the discs of the spine (cushions), and the intervertebral foramina (openings) through which the spinal nerves branch off the spinal cord. Stenosis of the spinal canal can occur if arthritis causes bone of the facet joints to grow or produce spurs. Bulging or herniation of the discs can also narrow the canal. Any swelling of the nerves or soft tissue of the spine can contribute to stenosis. Misalignment of the spinal bones (vertebrae) called subluxation is a commonly overlooked cause of spinal stenosis. The most common symptoms of neck stenosis are neck pain with numbness, pain and weakness of the upper extremities. Lower back stenosis commonly causes lower back pain with numbness, pain and weakness of the lower extremities. People with stenosis will often develop a slumped forward posture. Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by multiple factors including overgrowth/spurring of the facet joints, disc bulging, swelling and spinal misalignment combining together to narrow the spinal canal. Overgrowth of the facet joints can only be corrected surgically. However, frequently, stenosis can be relieved by reducing one or more of the other factors. Applying cold packs to the spine or taking anti-in” ammatory medications can reduce swelling. Traction can reduce disc bulging. Chiropractic spinal manipulation (adjustments) can reduce narrowing of the available spinal canal. Conservative treatment will often relieve spinal stenosis making surgery unnecessary. Dr. W. Patrick Danzey is director of the Avon Park Chiropractic Clinic and inventor of the Axial Trac Spinal Traction System .Spinal stenosisCOLUMNISTDr. W. Patrick Danzey By YOGA FOR LIFENancy DaleWhen a painful mental/ emotional/physical crisis enters our life, we often automatically react with stress.Ž Stress creates negative energy expressed as tension, illness, lack of concentration, depression, when it gets the best of us. Through our Yoga practice, we can transmuteŽ the negative energy into a positive healing action with practice in calming, quieting, and stilling the mind to restore harmony. Try these Yoga practice solutions. Transmutation of energy is one of the laws of the universe, meaning moving from a highly intense, stressful energy into a lower, slower energy frequency that reduces negative thoughts with a practice of deep breathing to counter restless sleep, lack of focus/ concentration. Just as we choose to change a TV show to a program that reduces our anxiety, we can change the channel in our mind. We do not have to stay in the energy that creates tension and stress. We have a choice to calm our mind and body by going inward with deep, even, long breaths expanding our inner-awareness to calmly let go of negative energy. There are a number of Yoga postures to assist in this practice. LETS GIVE IT A TRY: Roll out your Yoga mat in a quiet, uncluttered place. If you are in the midst a crisis and clutter is everywhere, “ nd the most calming location in the chaos, and shut out the visual disaster. When I was hit with Hurricanes Francis/ Jeanne in 2004 on Hutchinson Island, my home was destroyed as I watched the slow growth of mold/mildew creep down the remaining walls. So be it. I “ rst had to go inside my mind/body to let go of the crisis energy mode and bring into my consciousness calmness amidst physical chaos. Creating and attaining this calmness is the true challenge of life that we can only individually determine to resolve. Thus, I unrolled my Yoga mat on the smoothest area on the ” oor, cleared some debris and closed my eyes. The physical reinforcement of the crisis was now outside of my personal awareness and I began to deeply breathe in order to drop into a deeper level of consciousness where I could restore harmony. It doesnt have to be a huge natural disaster to disrupt our harmony, as in everyday life disruptive situations arise that can potentially threaten our inner peace.

PAGE 13 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B3BPPV is one of the most common causes of vertigo. It is characterized by brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness, which may last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. The dizziness may be triggered by upward/ downward head movement, turning your head to one side, rolling over, laying on your back and possibly standing up or walking. Luckily, BPPV is easily identi“ ed, and most patients who receive treatment recover fully. Causes of BPPV: About 50 percent of the time a direct cause for BPPV cannot be identi“ ed. However, it can be associated with head trauma, inner ear damage, migraines, aging of the hearing/balance system and, in rare cases, ear surgery. It is more common in elderly adults. Role of the Inner Ear and BPPV: The balance system is made up of your inner ear, eyes and proprioception (sensory receptors in muscles, joint capsules and surrounding tissues „ that signal information to the central nervous system about position and movement of body). The balance portion of the inner ear consists of three semicircular canals (which sense head position) and the utricle and saccule (which sense gravity and acceleration). The system contains small crystals called otoconia. In BPPV, the otoconia (crystals) are dislodged and move into one of the semicircular canals, which are ” uid “ lled. When the semicircular canal is stimulated by head movement, these crystals ” oat in the ” uid and cause the system to think there is movement; your eyes jerk re” exively (nystagmus) and the world appears to spin, resulting in dizziness. Diagnosis of BPPV: A diagnosis of BPPV can normally be made based on your medical history, a hearing test and physical examination. The DixHallpike maneuver is a test speci“ c for BPPV. There are various types of Dix Hallpike positions. Your physician or audiologist will perform an appropriate position of your body and head. Based on the type of movement of your eyes, direction of the movement and how long the dizzinessŽ lasts, a speci“ c canal will be identi“ ed as the etiology for your positional dizziness.Ž If you experience dizziness and nystagmus (eye jerking), this is normally considered a positive exam and con“ rms BPPV. Treatment of BPPV: BPPV can be a self-limiting problem, meaning it will resolve on its own over time. However, to speed up recovery, a variety of positioning maneuvers can be performed. The goal is to move the otoconia (crystals) out of the semicircular canals and return them to where they belong. The type of maneuver appropriate for treatment is going to depend on the speci“ cs of the eye movement, time of dizziness and physical limitations of the patient. Self-treatment is not recommended as the particles may migrate to a different part of the inner ear and then become a very dif“ cult treatment process. If you struggle with vertigo and are interested in seeking treatment, call your local doctor of audiology or for more information visit us at central” truth about vertigo COLUMNISTDr. Andrea Livingston When you or a loved one are sick or injured, you want to make sure that they will get all the care and treatment they need. Cost or necessity is definitely not the first issue you think of. Doctors may order extra tests to make sure that everything is covered and they do not get sued. Sometimes it is easier to give in to a patients request for an MRI or other expensive test than it is to spend the time explaining why the test is not needed. There are also some smart questions you can ask to make a smart decision on whether you need a test or not. Will the test make a difference in what treatment is ordered? A good example of this is an MRI in shoulder pain without trauma. It will show many things due to wear and tearŽ such as arthritis and small rotator cuff tears that do not change the initial recommendation for anti-inflammatories, steroid injection, and/or physical therapy. Those that respond positively to treatment (that is the pain and motion get better) do not need imaging. Small asymptomatic rotator cuff tears may occur naturally with aging and do not require further treatment. The Ottawa ankle rules, first published in 1992, were one of the first attempts to use clinical evidence in the development of guidelines. By analyzing 698 ankles presenting to the emergency room, significant differences were found in the exam of a broken ankle and that of a sprained ankle. Using the criteria that were developed all ankle fractures would have been found (100 percent sensitive) and X-rays would have been reduced by 28 percent. Later tweaksŽ reduced the X-rays by 54 percent Another question is whether this is the safest and cheapest test to make a diagnosis or decision. This question was examined for head trauma. In addition to developing criteria those for who needed scans, CT scans were found to be the most cost effective and accurate as compared to MRI or plain X-rays. Many of the specialty societies, such as the American Academy for Orthopaedic Surgery, have joined in the CHOOSING WISELY initiative. Using evidence based medicine to make recommendations about treatment and testing that are best. The recommendations for patients are accessible at www.choosingwisely. com. Splinting after carpal tunnel surgery is a good example. When I was a resident, we kept the patients in plaster splints or casts for two or three weeks. More recently we used smaller but still rigid splints for several weeks. Now, there are three level-one (the best type of evidence) studies that show that constant splinting makes no difference and may result in more stiffness. Intermittent splinting for protection such as when driving may be helpful. So CHOOSE WISELY when getting tests or making treatment decisions to make your healthcare dollars go farther.

PAGE 15 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5By Metro Creative ConnectionsHoney is natures sweet nectar. While honey certainly can add flavor to various recipes or be enjoyed straight out of the jar, it has many other surprising benefits as well. Used since ancient times as both a food and for medicinal purposes, honey can make for a versatile addition to anyones diet. Substitute for refined sugar: Refined sugar offers little to no nutritional value and is full of empty calories. Heathline says that honey has bioactive plant compounds and antioxidants as well as trace amounts of vitamins and minerals. The antioxidants in honey, which include phenols and flavonoids, may help prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke and some types of cancer. Has antibacterial and antifungal properties: According to the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, honey is antibacterial. Honey will not foster growth of these microorganisms because it contains small amounts of hydrogen peroxide. Because of these properties, some people say that honey can help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis, or other conditions where fungi and bacteria grow unchecked. Soothes sore throat: Taking a tablespoon of honey to relieve itchy, dry throats and coughs can be effective. In a study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, it was determined that honey could be just as effective at stemming cough as the popular medicine dextromethorphan. Helps reduce inflammation: Honey is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, honey can help treat diabetes, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, and other diseases traced back to widespread inflammation, according to Greek researcher Natalia Vallianou of the Evangelismos Hospital in Athens. Regulates blood sugar: The combination of fructose and glucose in honey may help the body regulate its blood sugar levels, which could be beneficial to those with diabetes. Certain types of honey also may have a lower hypoglycemic index, which means they dont cause a dramatic shift in blood sugar, according to the food and health resource Real Food for Life. Has probiotic properties: Some varieties of honey contain large amounts of the friendly bacteria that the body needs to maintain a healthy gut microbiome. Promotes healing: There is evidence that clinical use of honey on burns and wounds can be beneficial. Data published in the Scientific World Journal said that honey can be used to dress wounds and that it produces similar results to other topical treatments in promoting healing.The many health benefits of honey MEDICAL2030 NOW HIRINGPT Phone Operator PT Authorization For busy Medical practice.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 13, 2018 By RICARDO ALONZOZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON (AP) „ President Donald Trump says insurers are going wildŽ about his new health care options and millions and millionsŽ of people will be signing up. But insurance companies say it will take time to design new plans and get approval from state regulators, and two major industry groups have actually expressed concern about potential downsides for consumers. For people who need an individual policy and are anticipating cheaper plans this fall, the advice seems to be: Look carefully and read the “ne print. Short-term, limited-duration insurance„ just approved „ and association health plans represent the Trump administration alternatives to comprehensive but costly policies under the Affordable Care Act. Both offer lower premiums than comprehensive health insurance but also cover less. The plans wont be sold through Myra Simon of the industry group Americas Health Insurance Plans said consumers are likely to see advertising this fall for short-term plans but association plans may be harder to “nd, since theyre not open to everybody. Policyholders must have a common link, such as working in an industry like real estate. The short timeline may mean that this fall we arent going to see all the products we are eventually going to see,Ž said Simon, an expert on individual health insurance. We might see some more heavy marketing of products that already existed.Ž Jeff Smedrud, CEO of Pivot Health, which offers short-term plans, says companies are behind the curve on updating their plans to account for the greater leeway provided by the Trump administration. Hes forecasting minor improvementsŽ in plans by October but a lot of change in 2019.Ž Strictly speaking, shortterm and association health plans are not new. The Trump administration has broadened their potential reach, although some states may push back with restrictions. Short-term plans dont have to take people with pre-existing medical conditions, or provide bene“ts like coverage for maternity, mental health, prescription drugs and substance abuse treatment. They can last up to 364 days and be renewed for up to 36 months. Association health plans do have to accept people with pre-existing medical conditions, but they dont have to cover the full menu of 10 essentialŽ kinds of bene“ts required by the ACA. On the whole, association Insurance companies approach Trump health plans cautiously ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 26, 2017, le photo, President Donald Trump responds to a reporters question on health care after arriving at Jo hn F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. Trump says insurers are going wildŽ about his new health care options and millions and millionsŽ of people will be signing up.

PAGE 17 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7Metro Creative ConnectionsThe “tness industry is booming and attracting new devotees every day. Research from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association says 2017 was a strong year for the health and “tness industry, and several health clubs have built on that success in 2018. The growth of the “tness industry has included a surge in boutique “tness regimens. While major clubs offer classes, separate boutique clubs also are thriving. Clubs focusing on ballet barre, Cross-Fit and Orangetheory are just some examples of the booming boutique “tness industry. Holiday shoppers with “tness fans on their list can look to their loved ones love of physical activity when seeking inspiration for holiday gifts. Purchasing gifts for someone with a speci“c hobby or interest can often be daunting because enthusiasts may have “rm ideas of what they like and want to use. While the same can be said for athletes and people who live active lifestyles, there are plenty of gifts that will appeal to those who embrace “tness as part of their lifestyle. Bluetooth headphones: Music can inspire and get “tness buffs motivated. Bluetooth headphones connect wirelessly to most devices, and such headphones wont get tangled up while running or hitting the elliptical at the gym. Select a pair that are lightweight and comfortable and securely “t in the ears for ultimate convenience. Reversible yoga mat: Active yogis know just how much a stretch session can work up a sweat. Throw in an hour of hot yoga, and perspiration will certainly be ”owing. Everyone recognizes Lululemon for their comfortable workout attire, but the company also has a reversible yoga mat that wicks away moisture during yoga sessions. When gifting yoga mats, throw in a yoga mat carrier as well. Fitness tracker: Active people often like to track their progress during a workout or to see just how much theyve been moving during the day. Fitness trackers are ideal for this. Different brands come at various price points to make giving easier on the budget. Personal blender: Diet plays a big role in “tness, and many “tness enthusiasts enjoy protein shakes and smoothies as part of their daily regimen. A personal blender makes enough for a single bottle at a time. Some are designed so the blender tube is actually the receptacle that can be carried on the go. Suspension training kit: Many workouts are based on counterbalancing body weight to drive up resistance. Suspension training, like the workouts from TRX, utilize a network of straps so athletes can put their body weight to use in a variety of exercises. A portable kit can be set up wherever its needed. Dumbbell set: Weight training can boost metabolism and strengthen bones and muscles. When athletes cant make it to the gym, a home set of dumbbells can ensure they still get their strength-training sessions in. Workout bag: A durable duffel bag that can tote a change of clothes, towel, equipment, and more to and from workouts is a gift any “tness enthusiast can enjoy. Out“tting “tness enthusiasts with the tools of the trade is a sure“re way to purchase a holiday-gift hit.Gift ideas for fitness fans COURTESY PHOTO/MCCThere are plenty of options for gifts for tness lovers.

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 13, 2018 By BARBARA QUINNThe Monterey County Herald (TNS)In a recent column, I stated, Even if we entirely avoided all carbohydrates, our bodies would use protein in an alternate recipe to make glucose (sugar) to fuel our cells.Ž A reader in Ontario, Canada, responded: According to Dr. Jason Fung, author of The Obesity Code,Ž if one eats a diet of 65 percent healthy fat, 35 percent protein, and 5 percent carbohydrate, the body will be in ketosis and will burn fat, not protein, to make glucose to fuel our cells. Only when the body reaches the level of 4 percent fat will protein be used to make glucose.Ž This reader then goes on to describe his success with this diet under his doctors supervision. I have lost a pound a week for 15 weeks and feel very good after the initial few days of sugar withdrawal. My regime of full fat yogurt and milk, unsweetened whipped cream in my coffee, olive and avocado oils, limited fruit, no root vegetables, no flour, beans or pulses satisfies my hunger as no other diet has. Have you looked into the ketogenic diet? I believe it is revolutionary.Ž Dear reader, I applaud your progress. And yes, I have looked into the research on ketogenic diets. Here are my thoughts: Glucose „ the primary fuel for our brain, muscle and other body functions „ is easily provided by carbohydrates (sugars and starches in most plant-based foods). In the absence of carbohydrates, our amazing bodies can make glucose from fat and protein. Ketogenic diets severely restrict carbohydrates to force the body to manufacture glucose from these alternate sources. This causes acids (ketones) to build up in the blood „ a condition called ketosis. In times of starvation or low carb dieting, take your pick, our brains and muscles can survive on ketone bodies. The ketogenic diet is extremely popular and controversial. Like you, many of its followers report less hunger and more weight loss compared to other diets. Yet experts argue its long term effectiveness and safety. These diets eliminate or severely restrict any type of sugar or starch including grains, fruit (natural fruit sugar, fructose), potatoes and other starchy vegetables, beans, legumes and milk (natural milk sugar, lactose). On the plus side, ketogenic diets have been used successfully to treat epileptic seizures in children. And many people who adopt this eating plan eat more vegetables and less added sugar. Studies over the past 15 years show that animals and humans tend to lose weight faster on ketogenic diets than with other types of diets. Their effectiveness over the long term does not seem to be any better than other weight loss plans, however. On the down side, ketosis means that our bodies must deal with the production of acids, including acetone, that build up in our blood. This, say biochemists, disturbs the bodys natural acid-base balance. People with diabetes are at risk of ketoacidosis „ an extreme form of ketosis that is life threatening. While promoters of the keto diet say this is not a risk for healthy people, I personally do not prefer to chronically feed my brain and muscles this way. My opinion also is that carbohydrates are not evil monsters. They are quite literally the energy from the sun transformed by plants into fuel (sugars and starches). This energy is transferred to me when I eat plant-based foods. If I severely restrict these foods, I also eliminate Another look at the keto diet KETO | 10B HIGHLANDS HEALTH EAR-TRONICS LEASE YOUR HEARING AID! Heres Why...

PAGE 19 August 13, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9By MICHAEL (TNS)CLEVELAND „ It is 7:30 on a summer morning in a chapel-like room overlooking the slate-gray, lapping waters of Lake Erie. Ten or so people, some just arriving at work, some “nishing a night shift, sit silently in pewlike benches and armchairs below stained-glass windows. A plump Golden Retriever named Linus, a hospice therapy dog, wanders from one person to another, gratefully accepting their caresses. Dr. Kevin Dieter, a hospice care physician with graying mustache and goatee, gently suggests they get started. A hospice nurse sitting in a bench opposite him begins reading names. In the pause after she pronounces each, Dieter strikes together two palmsized Buddhist meditation chimes, producing a tinkling peal that quickly evaporates. The names go on and on. Evonne and Molly and Andre and Jerry. Twelve in all. Twelve patients who were alive in this hospice house three days ago when this ceremony was last held. Twelve who have died since, each in one of the bedrooms lining the quiet hallways, each having hoped for a death free of pain or distress and, for the lucky ones, bitterness or resentment. Providing the possibility of that wished-for death is the professional mission of all in this room, of all the 935 employees and 3,000 volunteers who work for the 40-year-old nonpro“t Hospice of the Western Reserve. Each day they serve 1,200 hospice patients, most of them in hospitals, nursing homes, or their homes, and as many as 88 in one of three inpatient hospice houses in the Cleveland area, like this one off Lakeshore Boulevard. By Medicares criteria, to receive hospice services, each of those patients is deemed to have six months or less to live. In most cases, they also must agree to forgo curative treatments. All the employees will say theyve gotten used to hearing The Questions, from family and friends, even from the loved ones of patients they care for. We get asked that all the time,Ž said Tammy Wright, 43, a nurses assistant with hospice certi“cation, now in her ninth year doing hospice work. Why did you ever choose to work there? Why would anyone elect to spend their workdays so entwined with death and grief? And how can you possibly get up the next morning to do it all over again?Ž It is hard to think of another profession with such constant exposure to dying. Yet, as intense and exhausting as hospice care is, you seldom hear any of the doctors, nurses, aides, social workers and bereavement counselors at the Hospice of the Western Reserve describe the job as grim, sad or dispiriting. Instead, they tend to portray the work as deeply ful“lling, gratifying and, perhaps most counterintuitively, life-af“rming. And in working in the presence of imminent death, they all say they have witnessed sights that defy expectation or explanation. We see God working here all the time,Ž said Dee Metzger, 68, a hospice nurse in the Medina Inpatient Hospice Care Center southwest of Cleveland. All the time.Ž The turnover rate among employees at Western Reserve is a surprisingly low 12 percent, according to Judy Bartel, Western Reserves chief clinical of“cer. (Nationally the turnover rate for hospice registered nurses is almost 19 percent.) To retain its employees, the hospice offers them many outlets to combat burnout and compassion fatigue.Ž As more Americans opt for hospice care, keeping hospice workers dedicated, replenished and content is a growing concern. The number of hospice patients grew 167 percent between 2000 and 2016, to more than 1.4 million, according to a March 2018 report from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, which provides Congress with analyses regarding Medicare. Nearly half of Medicare bene“ciaries who died in 2015 had received hospice services. At Western Reserve, those who quit the job are the ones who cant leave the work behind when they head home. Its sacred work,Ž says Lisa Scotese Gallagher, one of whose jobs at Western Reserve is to provide programming to help the staff deal with the stress and emotional intensity of their jobs. But the expectation that we can be immersed in suffering and loss and not be touched by it is unrealistic.Ž Every week, Dieter loses 10 to 20 patients. Even those who survive the week arent likely to see many more sunrises. By the conventional measures of medicine, Dieter would be considered a failure. But he and his colleagues at Western Reserve do not evaluate themselves by the binary formula of life or death. In their professional lives, death is the inevitable, the constant, the unavoidable. At the end of life, theres not a lot of “xing you can do,Ž Dieter says. The hospice caregivers gauge their professional performance by how they usher their patients to their end. The most we can do is provide opportunity for our patients to have the best deaths possible for them,Ž said Dieter, 62, medical director of Western Reserves David Simpson Hospice House. While everyone else is running away from it, we in end-of-life are rushing forward saying, We know what youre going through. We want to help.Ž There is a shortage of hospice care in the nation, with not enough hospice doctors and nurses to keep up with an aging population, particularly in rural areas. Many hospices are understaffed, especially for those needing home care. Western Reserve relies on extensive fundraising to supplement Medicare and provide extra services for patients, such as art and music therapy. The easier part is relieving the physical symptoms, most often pain and agitation, which Dieter controls through medication. Most of death isnt medical, its spiritual and psychological,Ž he says. Hospice workers know they cant erase all hurts and resentments. But often they facilitate conversations that can lead to deathbed reconciliations. Shortly after the ceremony in the meditation room, Dieter slips into the room of a 75-year-old woman with advanced pancreatic cancer. She had been readmitted two days earlier, with swelling, edema, agitation and restlessness. Dieter had administered medications to try to get the symptoms under control, although in his estimation, she was now actively dying with kidney and liver failure. The previous day had been a bad one, so Dieter is heartened when he walks into the room and sees the tiny, white-haired woman sitting up in her bed, her eyes open and with no signs of the jerking he had observed earlier. I had a surprise this morning,Ž her husband says from an armchair at her bedside. Shes going to hang around a little longer.Ž Turning to her, he says, Youre like a cat. You have nine lives.Ž She doesnt seem to follow. Dieter pulls up a folding chair alongside the opposite side of the bed and speaks quietly to her, occasionally reaching over to pat her leg. I know youre confused,Ž Dieter tells her. Part of that is the medicine, part is your illness. But youre doing better.Ž She smiles wanly. Outside the room, Dieter says she could be staging a rally, a brief improvement that could buy her a little more time. Or it could be just a pause before she resumes her march to the end. An erudite man who quotes poetry and Latin ruminations about death, Dieter has been doing this work for nearly 30 years. Most of us will tell you that we get more from our work than we give,Ž he said. For me, its a way of having my soul and my role aligned.Ž Hospice care, he said, has taught him not to hold on to resentments and to try to “nd joy in the everyday. The work, Dieter says, does not sadden him. If I felt helpless to impact how people experience the end of their lives, it would be awful. The fact that I and our team can do something about it, thats what carries you through. You lean into it, knowing that your skills and presence are making a difference.Ž Others speak of how the work enriches their lives. I was the biggest chicken in the world about death before I came here,Ž said Audrey Boylan, 51, a hospice nursing assistant in the Simpson hospice. Now, thanks to (her patients), Im not afraid at all. Its an honor to sit there and hold their hands. To help them “nd peace and comfort. I consider this Gods waiting room.Ž Once, early on, she and a volunteer were bathing an elderly woman when the volunteer nodded toward the womans feet. Boylan saw the familiar mottling of the skin that precedes death. As they watched, the mottling climbed up the womans leg, then torso and all the way up to her ear. Can you call my kids and tell them I dont feel too good?Ž the woman asked. She died that night, after her family held a Christmas celebration for her. In July. Linda Cotoam, 69, a United Methodist pastor for 26 years and spiritual care coordinator at the Western Reserve hospice house in Westlake for the last six, said that her hospice work has broadened her faith in a way her previous 20 years in the church had not. I got a wider view of who Gods people are, a wider view of God as much more accepting.Ž Although Western Reserve is in no way religiously associated, virtually everyone interviewed for this story described themselves as, if not religiously observant, spiritually inclined. This job will con“rm any faith you have, but it will also challenge those beliefs when you see the suffering some go through,Ž said Misty Durbin, 42, a social worker in the Westlake hospice. To do this work, you need something, whether it is prayer or nature or meditation.Ž With Gallaghers prodding, the staff is quite intentional about what she calls self-care, ways to replenish themselves so they can remain mentally engaged in the work. It is vital, she says, that workers not suppress their feelings, but “nd ways to process and share them with others. One of the primary dangers is compassion fatigue,Ž a numbing to the suffering of others frequently experienced by caregivers. The signs are increased irritability, a dread of going to work, an inability to experience joy, and often an increased use of alcohol or drugs. Another sign, Gallagher says: Depersonalized language, like referring to a patient by diagnosis rather than using their name.Ž How hospice workers deal with death Gregg Shore, M.D. Specializing in InterStim Therapy for Incontinence in Highlands County!

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 13, 2018 Temperature: When temperatures are not controlled properly, food can spoil. It is essential that foods are stored, cooked and served at the proper temperature. The Danger Zone Pathogenic spoilage occurs when foods are exposed to temperatures between 40 F and 140F, which is dubbed The Danger Zone.Ž The USDA recommends keeping cold food below 40 F (4.4 C) and hot food at or above 140 F (60 C) to prevent it from going bad. Food preparation necessities The CDC recommends these four steps to additionally prevent food spoilage and illness: 1. Clean: Wash hands and food-preparation surfaces often. 2. Separate: Do not cross-contaminate hands, surfaces and prepared foods with raw foods. 3. Cook: Cook all foods to the recommended temperature. 4. Chill: Refrigerate cold foods promptly. Germs can grow in as little as two hours at room temperature. Recognize food spoilage People without an acute sense of smell and eyesight, such as the elderly, may be at greater risk of food spoilage that can make them sick than younger people. Food that is going bad tends to develop unpleasant odors and textures. The health and food resource Nutronics Health says that most fresh or recently cooked food leftovers should only be stored in the refrigerator for three to four days. Showcase foods that will spoil quickly by keeping them in a visible spot. An Uncluttered Life advises discarding items that have been stored in the freezer for more than six months. Staying safe and healthy means keeping an eye on how foods are handled and stored, and taking steps to prevent spoilage. TF189304SPOILAGEFROM PAGE 1Bthat the animals used to produce meat and dairy were fed only grass. Consumer Reports advises consumers to look for seals such as American Grassfed or PCO Certi“ed 100% Grassfed to ensure that manufacturer claims have been veri“ed and that the animals were fed 100 percent grass and raised on pasture. Hormone free: The federal government of the United States prohibits the use of hormones to raise poultry and hogs, so manufacturers who label their foods as hormone freeŽ have not gone above and beyond to make their foods healthier. Organic: The United States Department of Agriculture has strict criteria in regard to labeling foods as organic.Ž To be labeled organic,Ž dairy, eggs, meat, and poultry can come only from animals that were not given antibiotics or growth hormones. Fruits and vegetables can only be labeled organicŽ if they were produced without conventional pesticides, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients, bioengineering, or ionizing radiation. Processed: Many consider processed foods to be bad and loaded with additives. But thats not always the case. The USDA de“nes processed as foods that have undergone a change of character. For example, cut, prewashed spinach quali“es as a processed food. Sodium: Otherwise known as salt, sodium is necessary to maintain nerve and muscle health. However, many people consume too much sodium, oftentimes because of processed foods. WebMD notes that sodium intake should be limited to 2,300 milligrams or less per day. Certain people, such as those over the age of 51, African Americans or those with certain conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes, should consume no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day.LABELFROM PAGE 1B to calm the body is to lay ”at on the back, arms resting next to the hips and chin titling towards the chest to relieve stress. It is the mind that guides the body into relaxation, turning off turmoil and concentrating only on deep breathing that refreshes the entire body with healing energy. Negative thoughts are disruptive to our harmony and if not transmuted to positive thoughts will plague our physical/ mental relaxation and health. We learn through transmutation of energy to quiet the mind/body. Lying still on the back and just deepening each breath with the eyes closed can move us into an inner calmness where we turn off the external world and enter more deeply into our calmness with no thoughts. It does not take long with each breath to send renewed oxygenated blood throughout the bloodstream and refresh our energy. It is all about a calm concentration. As you lay on your back and deeply breathe, go inside the body and visualize ignited blood slowly traveling to all the body extremities as you inhale and visualize the toxins leaving the body on each exhale. Continue to deeply breathe until the mind relaxes and the monkey mindŽ turns down and off. We say in Yoga, the monkey mind,Ž as it is always jumping from one concern to the next and stirring up worry, negativity. Let all of those thoughts go and stay focused only on deep inhales and exhales. This is transmutation of energy from negative to positive. Stay in this relaxed state until you feel a sense of revival. Silence can still the mind and allow the transmutation of positive energy to replace tension with calmness. The “rst step in calming the mind/body in a crisis is though deep breathing that can be practiced anywhere. You do no need to be lying on a Yoga mat, as you can close the eyes and deeply breathe, standing/sitting. When we quiet the mind we calm the body which allows us to restore inner-harmony. Inner-calmness begins with letting go of frustration, going inside the mind and body guided by the breath. We have a choice.YOGAFROM PAGE 2Bhealth plans have more federal consumer safeguards than short-term plans. Speaking at the White House last month, Trump almost made it sound like theres going to be a stampede to get the new plans. So all of the insurance companies are going wild, they want to get it,Ž he said of association health plans. Youre going to have great health care at a much lower price.Ž As for short-term insurance, somewhat different, result the same,Ž Trump said. Much less expensive health care at a much lower price; will cost our country nothing.Ž Thats not what the industrys saying. The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association warned that the broader availability and longer duration of slimmeddown policies that do not provide comprehensive coverage has the potential to harm consumers.Ž And Americas Health Insurance Plans, the main trade group, said, We remain concerned that consumers who rely on short-term plans for an extended time period will face high medical bills when they need care that isnt covered or exceed their coverage limits.Ž Under the Obama-era health law, consumer complaints centered on high premiums, particularly for middle-class people not eligible for its income-based subsidies. But the fear of being turned down because of a pre-existing condition faded away. So did worries about being denied coverage for certain kinds of care, like substance abuse treatment. And insurers were forbidden from imposing annual and lifetime dollar limits on coverage. Now concerns about such “ne print will be back, particularly with short-term plans. Some consumers may be willing to gamble, “guring that if they get sick they can always switch to comprehensive coverage at with an ACA plan. Not so fast, said Simon, the individual insurance expert. With some exceptions, people can only sign up for ACA plans during open enrollment season from Nov. 1-Dec. 15. If someone in your family later gets diagnosed with a serious mental illness, for example, you might have to wait months to get them into a comprehensive plan that will cover that condition. Its not simple to move back and forth,Ž said Simon. Another potential surprise: Gary Claxton of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation says short-term plans may turn out to be more costly than Trump administration of“cials suggest. The plans now cover up to 90 days, but if insurers expand them to offer up to 36 months coverage, the companies will be taking on more risk. Youll have to pay more up front because theres a longer time during which you could get sick,Ž Claxton said. Thats correct, con“rmed Smedsrud, the insurance CEO. The longer you cover somebody, the more likely it is you are going to have a claim,Ž he explained.TRUMPFROM PAGE 6B some pretty important nutrients and substances that reduce inflammation „ a major trigger for obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHERSee page 8 Monday, August 13, 2018 By MARCIA DUNNAP AEROSPACE WRITERCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. „ Embarking on a mission that scientists have been dreaming of since the Sputnik era, a NASA spacecraft hurtled Sunday toward the sun on a quest to unlock some of its mysteries by getting closer than any object sent before. If all goes well, the Parker Solar Probe will ” y straight through the wispy edges of the suns corona, or outer atmosphere, in November. In the years ahead, it will gradually get within 3.8 million miles of the surface, its instruments protected from the extreme heat and radiation by a revolutionary new carbon heat shield and other high-tech wizardry. Altogether, the Parker probe will make 24 close approaches to our star during the seven-year, $1.5 billion journey. Wow, here we go. Were in for some learning over the next several years,Ž said Eugene Parker, the 91-year-old astrophysicist for whom the spacecraft is named. It was Parker who accurately theorized 60 years ago the existence of solar wind „ the supersonic stream of charged particles blasting off the sun and coursing through space, sometimes wreaking havoc on electrical systems on Earth. This is the “ rst time NASA has named a spacecraft after a living person. As Parker and thousands of others watched, a Delta IV Heavy rocket carried the probe aloft, thundering into the clear, star-studded sky on three pillars of “ re that lit up the middle-of-the-night darkness. NASA needed the mighty 23-story rocket, plus a third stage, to get the Parker probe „ the size of a small car and well under a ton „ racing toward the sun, 93 million miles from Earth. A Saturday morning launch attempt was foiled by last-minute technical trouble. But Sunday gave way to complete success. It was the “ rst rocket launch ever witnessed by Parker, a retired University of Chicago professor. He said it was like looking at photos of the Taj Mahal for years and then beholding the real thing in India. I really have to turn from biting my nails in getting it launched, to thinking about all the interesting things which I dont know yet and which will be made clear, I assume, over the next “ ve or six or seven years,Ž Parker said on NASA TV. Among the mysteries scientists hope to solve: Why is the corona hundreds of times hotter than the surface, which is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit? And why is the suns atmosphere continually expanding and accelerating, as Parker theorized in 1958? The only way we can do that is to “ nally go up and touch the sun,Ž said project scientist Nicola Fox of Johns Hopkins University. Weve looked at it. Weve studied it from missions that are close in, even as close as the planet Mercury. But we have to go there.Ž A better understanding of the suns life-giving and sometimes violent nature could also enable earthlings to better protect satellites and astronauts in orbit, along with the Touch the sun: NASA spacecraft hurtles toward our star NASA VIA APIn this photo provided by NASA, The United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket launches NASAs Parker Solar Probe to touch the Sun, Sunday from Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The Pierce County Medical Examiners Of“ ce con“ rmed Sunday that Russell had died in the “ ery wreckage, but whether the crash was deliberate or accidental was one of several topics remaining for investigators.

The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging threeterm Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson; several congressional seats will be competitive; and Floridians will vote on 13 proposed constitutional amendments, ranging from property tax cuts to banning greyhound racing. The following are items of political interest from the past week:Party chairman bemoans bitter primaryTheres someone who is fed up with the barrage of negative television ads and campaigning so far this year: The head of the Republican Party of Florida. Blaise Ingoglia took to Twitter this week to say that Im really disappointed in all the negative campaigning going on between Republicans in the primary this year. We are better than this.Ž In a second tweet, Ingoglia added lets not help our opposition tomorrow by helping to destroy ourselves today.Ž Ingoglias plea came one day after a rancorous debate that witnessed the two GOP candidates for governor trade sharp blows with each other. U.S. Ron DeSantis accused Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam of lying, while Putnam maintained DeSantis was unquali“ed and ignorant about the demands of the job.As (already) seen on TVIt didnt take long for DeSantis to turn his appearance at a rally with President Donald Trump into a TV commercial. DeSantis released an ad this week that was entirely footage of the event. Its called Tough CookieŽ „ a reference to Trump introducing him at the Tampa event as a tough, brilliant cookie.Ž It ends with DeSantis pointing at the crowd as the words CONSERVATIVE WARRIORŽ appear on the screen and Trumps voice saying, Everybody needs to support Ron DeSantis.ŽAnd not so TrumpRepublican U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo is being targeted by Democrats in a Miami-area district that supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. So his message is a little bit different than most Republicans around Florida. Curbelo released a 15-second video ad that begins, We have to work across the aisle to get big things done in Washington, D.C. So I will never apologize for reaching across the aisle and working with all of my colleagues.ŽGotta have faithDemocratic candidate for governor Chris King told a Tiger Bay Club in St. Petersburg spoke of a highly weaponized strand of evangelical RepublicanismŽ and said he wants to use faith to convince the GOP to work with him to enact policy thats more in line with the teachings in the Bible. If youre wealthy and well-connected, Florida is a great place to live, but if you are not, this state can be a tough place to make a living,Ž King said. While the Bible has thousands of versus on caring for the needs of the poor, the immigrant, the sick, the least of these, I would argue that our states one-party Republican government has, in very intentional ways, made life more dif“cult, more dif“cult and more treacherous for them.Ž King said he considers it a sin not to provide health care for those who dont have it, and likewise the state isnt doing enough to provide homes for those who cant afford them. I believe that faith ... whether its coming from a mosque, or a synagogue, or a church, or another faith tradition „ in its purist and most noble form in the public square „ is about caring, serving, loving, sacri“cing for the bene“t of our neighbor,Ž he said.Stand by me? Not quiteState Rep. Julio Gonzalez is in a “erce battle with state Sen. Greg Steube in the Republican primary for U.S. House District 17, which will likely decide the congressman to replace retiring Tom Rooney. But does Gov. Rick Scott supporting Gonzalez? Gonzalez released a 30-second spot showing Scott praising Gonzalez at an event they both attended, but the event was for Scotts U.S. Senate campaign „ not an endorsement. Viewers wouldnt know it by the ad, in which an announcer says Join Governor Scott in support of pro-Trump, tax-cutting conservative Dr. Julio Gonzalez.Ž But Scotts campaign manager, Jackie Schutz, said Scott hasnt endorsed in the race.Faith and tough cookies: This week in Florida politics Candidate accused of lying about graduating, faking diplomaSARASOTA (AP) „ A candidate for the Florida Legislature is being accused of lying about graduating from college and then producing a fake diploma after a website questioned her about it. Miami University in Ohio told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that Florida House candidate Melissa Howard attended the school but never graduated. The school also says the diploma she produced doesnt match those issued in 1994 or 1996, the years she has claimed she graduated, or any year. The Republican businesswoman is running in the Aug. 28 primary. Her educational background was “rst questioned last week by the website Florida News Online. After she posted a photo of the diploma, the website brie”y took down its story and apologized, but the university then said her claim was false. We have no such record of a degree,Ž the universitys lawyer, Robin Parker, said in an email to the paper. Howards diploma says she graduated with a degree in marketing „ Parker says the university has never offered such a degree and that Howards major was retail. Also, Parker said while the university presidents signature is correct, another administrators signature would not have appeared on the diploma. Howard did not answer a call Sunday from The Associated Press. Her campaign consultant, Anthony Pedicini, told the newspaper in a text message Saturday that Howards husband had a cardiac eventŽ and that she is focused on her family „ not fake news.Ž Her campaigns Facebook page appears to have been removed.Workers find prehistoric bone in SWFLCAPE CORAL (AP) „ Construction workers in southwest Florida uncovered a mammoth or mastodon bone that could be 2 million years old. The News-Press in Fort Myers reports that workers found the upper arm bone earlier this summer while digging for a utility extension. The Florida Museum of Natural History said the bone doesnt have enough characteristics to determine if it were a mammoth or mastodon, elephant-like mammals that roamed the area starting about 2 million years ago until about 12,000 years ago.Newspaper hall of fame inducts Miami black publisherORLANDO (AP) „ The publisher of Miamis African-American newspaper during the Civil Rights era has been inducted into Florida Press Associations Newspaper Hall of Fame. Garth Reeves inherited The Miami Times from his family after serving in World War II, where the hypocrisy of “ghting for freedom while living in segregation at home angered him. The association says the Bahamian native exercised his clout to prick the conscience of other Miamians in order to bring about social justice.Ž The association says his paper provided an important perspective that other Miami newspapers often ignored.Ž The 99-year-old Reeves was unable to attend Fridays ceremony in Orlando.Girl dies after being struck by stray bulletJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ A 7-year-old Florida girl died when she was shot in the head by a stray bullet while sitting in a car with her family. Jacksonville police say Heydi Rivas Villanueva was sitting in a car with her father and a sibling Saturday night in a strip mall parking lot, awaiting her mother to get off work at a nearby restaurant. Police say two groups of men started shooting at each other nearby and a bullet struck her. The gunmen ”ed. Heydi died about three hours later at a hospital.Floridians line beaches to demand state stop water pollutionFORT MYERS (AP) „ Thousands lined Floridas beaches to demand state leaders stop future red tide outbreaks like the one killing sea life on the states Gulf Coast. Sundays Hands Along the WaterŽ events happened on the Gulf and Atlantic coasts from the St. Petersburg area to Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale. The stench on some beaches from animals killed by the current red tide outbreak caused protestors to wear breathing masks. The toxic algae bloom has overrun Floridas southern Gulf Coast this summer as thousands of dead “sh, hundreds of sea turtles, some dolphins and even a whale shark have washed ashore. There is debate over whether pollution worsened the outbreak. The state is also dealing with freshwater algae outbreak that is clogging canals connected to Lake Okeechobee. Its caused by fertilizer runoff. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATESTATE NEWS


The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018 E/N/C Page 3Blast kills at least 39 civilians in Syrian rebel strongholdDAMASCUS, Syria (dpa) „ At least 39 civilians, including 12 children, were killed Sunday in a powerful explosion in a major rebel stronghold in Syria near the border with Turkey, a war monitor reported. The explosion took place inside an ammunition depot housed in a residential building in the town of Sarmada in the northwestern province of Idlib, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The blast caused the multistory building to collapse, local activists said. A civil defense volunteer in Idlib put the death toll at over 50. He said at least 70 others were injured. Idlib is largely controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an Islamist alliance led by an alQaida-linked group. In the past three years, thousands of rebels and their families have been moved from different parts of war-torn Syria to Idlib under agreements with the government.Wildfire forces Greek villages on island of Evia to evacuateATHENS, Greece (AP) „ Greeces fire service says a wildfire raging on the island of Evia, in central Greece, has forced them to evacuate two villages and a monastery. No casualties have been reported so far. Traffic on the main road that runs across the length of the 110-mile island has been stopped near the fire, police say. They urge people wishing to drive to Athens from northern Evia to use ferries to the mainland, which will operate throughout the night. Normally, drivers would cross a bridge at the narrowest point separating Evia from the mainland, which is south of the fires location. Greeces most devastating wild“re, at a seaside resort east of Athens on July 23, killed 94 people, with several more hospitalized in serious condition.Gas explosion in Pakistan coal mine kills 4, traps 13QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) „ Police in Pakistan say a methane gas explosion in a coal mine has killed at least four miners and trapped 13 others. Local police official Wajeet Khan says the blast happened Sunday in the village of Sanjdi, about 30 miles east of Quetta. He says rescuers have retrieved four bodies and that 13 other miners are missing and feared dead, with rescue operations hindered by the gas leak. Cave-ins and other mining accidents in Pakistan are often attributed to the poor enforcement of safety regulations.Kenya president urges citizens to arrest the corruptNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) „ Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is urging the nations young people to make citizens arrests of those suspected of corruption, a vice that is endemic in the country. Critics have called Kenyattas regime the most corrupt of the four leaders that Kenya has had since gaining independence from Britain in 1963. Kenyatta is in his second term after a disputed re-election victory last year and his administration has made a flurry of arrests of officials named in corruption scandals in recent weeks. The president said Sunday in the western Kenya town of Kisii during festivities to mark world youth day that young people should not be afraid to arrest the powerful. In his words, The power is in your hands to end this vice in this country.Ž HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD SAN ANTONIO (AP) „ The wife of the man who opened “re at a Texas church last November killing more than two dozen people before killing himself, says he tied her to their bed before leaving for the shooting. In a series of interviews with the San Antonio Express-News, Danielle Kelley said her husband, Devin Kelley, behaved strangely detached that morning until he put their 2-year-old son in the bedroom and forced her into the bedroom, where he bound her to the bed using rope, handcuffs and tape as their son cried. She said Devin told her he loved her, kissed their 5-month-old daughter in her crib and told their son, Ill be right back.Ž He grabbed his ri”e and two handguns, donned military-style tactical gear and body armor, then left. Devin Kelley then went to First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and killed 25 people, more than half of whom were children. Authorities put the of“cial death toll at 26 because one of the victims was pregnant. Her adoptive mother, Michelle Shields, has said her son-in-law was controlling and abusive to her daughter, who often accepted the abuse. Danielle and Devin met when she was 13 and he was 17. Both came from unstable backgrounds. Danielle said her biological parents had abused her before Child Protective Services removed her and Michelle Shields adopted her as a 4-year-old. After he joined the Air Force and married another woman, they corresponded through letters. He was court-martialed for fracturing his stepsons skull, served time behind bars, was kicked out of the military and divorced. Devin and Danielle married in April 2014, when he was 23 and she was 19. In April 2016, he bought an assault-style ri”e and gathered more than a dozen magazines capable of holding 30 rounds of ammunition each. He grew more reclusive. When she persuaded him to attend church services, including at First Baptist, he would laugh during sermons. Devin was sick. He lost who he was. Because the real Devin wouldve never hurt babies. He was a family person. He would never have hurt anybody. He lost touch of reality,Ž Danielle said. After the shooting, he called his parents and told them to go to his house. He later frantically phoned Danielle, who put the call on speakerphone for his parents, who had untied her. I just shot up the Sutherland Springs church,Ž he said. They pleaded with him to stop. He was like I cant. Ive killed so many people „ so, so many people,Ž Danielle said. He kept saying how sorry he was.Ž He told them he wasnt going to make it home, that he loved them. They told him the same. Then the call ended.Church gunmans wife says he bound her to bed before deathsAt least 27 rescued after flash flood hits West Texas parkUVALDE, Texas (AP) „ At least 27 people have been rescued after 8 to 9 inches of rain caused ”ash ”ooding in the Nueces River at a park west of San Antonio. The Uvalde County Sheriffs Of“ce says on its social media that the 27 were rescued from high water Sunday at Chalk Bluff Park, about 15 miles northwest of Uvalde, Texas. Helicopters were used to drop life jackets to those stranded by the rising waters before their rescues. No serious injuries were reported. The National Weather Service reports the 8 to 9 inches of rain fell over a three-hour period Sunday morning in the vicinity of the park, about 90 miles west of San Antonio. The Uvalde Fire Department and helicopters are sweeping the area for others needing rescue.National Guard troops providing manpower at states bordersPHOENIX (AP) „ In an attempt to stem a recent rise in drug traf“cking at Arizonas borders, National Guard troops are assisting U.S. Customs and Border Protection of“cers with increased inspections.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: Please explain convertible bonds. Were in our late 50s. We are not aggressive investors and own a $310,000 portfolio of stocks „ mostly utilities and other income stocks „ yielding 3 to 9 percent. A stockbroker tried to explain convertible bonds to us, but she just made it more confusing. Could you give us a simple explanation so we can have a clearer understanding? And could you recommend some convertible mutual funds to buy? We have about $21,000 to invest. „ PB, Waterloo, Iowa Dear PB: Convertible bond investments can be made to appear as complicated as differential equations or as simple as Simon. Sadly, the supposed experts enjoy complicating this subject by using recursive brute force and dynamic programming algorithms to explain how to choose attractive convertible bonds. So Ill just give you the Readers Digest version. It can be said of convertible bonds that they capture the best of both worlds. They have the safety and income of a plain vanilla corporate bond plus the upside potential of a common stock. Just like regular bonds, CBs are “xed-income investments and pay interest to investors twice a year. But unlike the case with regular bonds, as the underlying stock price increases, so does the market value of the CB. And unlike regular bonds, a CB gives an investor the option to convert his bond into common stock. Unlike common stock, a CB is not worthless if a company declares bankruptcy. CBs can only fall so far because all bonds have prior claims on assets. Another reason is that a CB has a maturity date, at which time the company is obligated to return the par value to each CB holder. Heres how it buries. Assume that Associated Bagel & Matzo issues a convertible bond at $1,000 with interest at 5 percent and that it will mature in November 2038. Then assume that the indenture on the ABM bond declares that the bond can be converted into 25 shares of common stock, which doesnt pay a dividend, any time between now and maturity in 2038. The conversion and break-even price ($1,000 divided by 25) is $40 a share. Assume youve owned a 5 percent $1,000 ABM CB for “ve years. Because it pays $50 interest annually, youve earned $250. Now assume that scientists have discovered that matzo and bagels cure cancer. Resultantly, ABM stock zooms above the $40 conversion price to $75, and the CB, because it converts to 25 shares, zooms to $1,875. Now you have various options. 1) You could tell the broker to convert your bond into 25 shares of stock worth $1,875. There would be no charge for the conversion, though some cheapskate brokerages might demand a conversion fee of $50 to $150. And though youd have a gain of $875 on your $1,000 ABM CB, there would be no tax on this conversion until you sold the stock. 2) Rather than convert, you could sell the ABM CB at $1,875 and make an $875 pro“t. 3) You could continue holding the CB to maturity, knowing it pays $50 interest annually because the stock pays no dividend. Some professionals believe that CBs give good balance and diversity to a long-term growth portfolio. There would be comfort in knowing that each time ABM stock rises $1, the CB would increase by $25. However, on the ”ip side, each $1 decline in ABM stock would reduce the CBs value by $25. Id recommend the following exchange-traded funds: The SPDR Bloomberg Barclays Convertible Securities ETF (CWB-$53.78) has $4.7 billion in assets, and the dividend yields 3.9 percent. The iShares Convertible Bond ETF (ICVT-$59.15) has $200 million in assets, and the dividend yields 2.2 percent. And the First Trust SSI Strategic Convertible Securities ETF (FCVT-$30.40) has $161 million in assets and a 2.2 percent dividend. Or you could invest in individual convertibles by Wells Fargo, Intel, Bank of America and Herbalife. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O.

Harley-Davidson drew Trumps wrath in June after the manufacturer announced it is moving production of motorcycles sold in Europe to facilities outside the U.S. The company blames the decision on tariffs imposed by the European Union to retaliate for tariffs Trump imposed on a host of EU products. On Sunday Trump tweeted that manyŽ Harley-Davidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. That followed Trumps meeting on Saturday with about 180 bikers who are part of a Bikers for TrumpŽ fan group at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson declined to comment. In July, Harley-Davidson said it expects new tariffs to cost the company as much as $100 million annually.Trump tweets about Harley-Davidson boycott death was, he could have in”icted vastly more damage had he been so inclined. Potential targets included tens of thousands of fans assembling at Safeco Field, about 12 miles away, for a sold-out Pearl Jam concert just as he took off. Last nights event is going to push us to learn what we can from this tragedy so that we can ensure this does not happen again at Alaska Air Group or at any other airline,Ž Brad Tilden, CEO of Alaska Airlines, told a news conference Saturday. The plane was a Bombardier Q400, a turboprop that seats 76 people, owned by Horizon Air, part of Alaska Airlines. It had been parked at a cargo and maintenance area for the night after arriving from Victoria, British Columbia, earlier in the day. Russell, a 3 1/2-year Horizon employee, worked as a ground service agent. His responsibilities included towing and pushing aircraft for takeoff and gate approach, de-icing them, and handling baggage. Authorities said he used a tractor to rotate the plane 180 degrees, positioning it so that he could taxi toward a runway. They said its not clear whether he had ever taken ”ight lessons or used ”ight simulators, or where he gained the skills to take off. The plane didnt require a key, but it did require buttons and switches to be activated in a particular order. His 75-minute ”ight during the golden twilight took him south and west, toward the Olympic Mountains. As a ”ight controller tried to persuade him to land, he wondered aloud about whether he had enough fuel to make it to the Olympics, talked of the beautiful view, and said he had a lot of people who cared about him, apologizing for what he was doing. He complimented the controller: You are very calm, collect, poised,Ž he said. He said ”ying was a blastŽ and that he didnt need much help: Ive played some video games before.Ž You think if I land this successfully Alaska will give me a job as a pilot?Ž he joked. He also told the controller he wasnt really planning on landingŽ the aircraft, and he described himself as just a broken guy.Ž Authorities sent “ghter jets to escort him, and the controller repeatedly tried to direct him to runways. But the plane slammed into tiny Ketron Island, a sparsely populated island southwest of Tacoma. Russell went by BeeboŽ on social media. On his Facebook page, which had limited public access, he said he was from Wasilla, Alaska; lived in Sumner, Washington; and was married in 2012. In a humorous YouTube video he posted last year, he talked about his job and included videos and photos of his travels. I lift a lot of bags. Like a lot of bags. So many bags,Ž he said. Russells family said in a statement that they were stunned and heartbroken. They said its clear Russell didnt intend to harm anyone, and he was right in saying that there are so many people who loved him.ŽPLANEFROM PAGE 1the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The weather out here in California seems to be cooling down today and over the next couple days, and that should hopefully help “re“ghters get even more containment,Ž Tolmachoff said. They should make better progress over the next couple of days.Ž Theyll need to, with temperatures, expected to again reach 100 degrees or more by the end of the week. The Holy Fire „ named for Holy Jim Canyon, where it began last Monday „ is one of nearly 20 blazes burning across California as the state sees earlier, longer and more destructive wild“re seasons because of drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change and home construction deeper into forests. With “re“ghters beginning to get a better handle on the blaze, they began to lift evacuation orders over the weekend for areas previously in its path, said Tolmachoff, who did not have exact numbers. More than 20,000 people were reportedly told to evacuate at one point. Aircraft have made ”ight after ”ight, dumping water and bright pink retardant on the blaze to protect Lake Elsinore and other foothill communities near the ”ames. The man accused of deliberately starting the “re appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed. Forrest Clark, 51, made several outbursts, claiming his life was being threatened and saying the arson charge against him was a lie. A court commissioner ordered his bail to remain at $1 million. Elsewhere, the largest “re ever recorded in California „ the Mendocino Complex „ burning north of Sacramento destroyed more than 100 homes. It was nearly 70 percent contained Saturday. Updated containment “gures were not immediately available on Sunday. On Saturday it had covered 508 square miles. The two-week-old Carr Fire that killed eight people and burned more than 1,000 homes was more than 50 percent contained on Saturday.WILDFIREFROM PAGE 1 North Slope was in 1995 at magnitude 5.2, West told the newspaper. The jump from a 5.2 to Sundays 6.4 is signi“cant because earthquakes rapidly grow in strength as magnitude rises, he said. Thats why at 6.4 this changes how we think about the region,Ž West said. Its a little early to say how, but its safe to say this earthquake will cause a re-evaluation of the seismic potential of that area.Ž The magnitude 6.5 earthquake was felt by workers at the oilproduction facilities in and around Prudhoe Bay, the News reported. The newspaper says that Alyeska Pipeline said the earthquake did not damage the trans-Alaska pipeline. The company says in a tweet that there are no operational concernsŽ related to the earthquake, but the pipeline will be inspected. At 7:14 a.m., a magnitude 5.1 earthquake hit another area in northern Alaska. The USGS says the earthquake hit a spot about 340 miles northeast of Fairbanks. Several aftershocks were reported across northern Alaska. The Alaska Earthquake Center says the earthquakes were felt across the eastern part of the states North Slope Borough and as far south as metro Fairbanks. The center adds that there are no reports of damage.EARTHQUAKEFROM PAGE 1FROM PAGE ONE


The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My daughter is 4 years old and has, in the past ve days, developed measles. She was vaccinated at 9 months and has been treated with antibiotics, Tylenol and vitamin A supplements. What concerns me is that she is now experiencing seizures, even without a fever. They are not grand mal seizures, but simple ones. They have me worried. What can I do? „ G.A. ANSWER: Measles remains a serious disease in many parts of the world, with 90,000 deaths reported in 2016. Even in industrialized nations, there have been outbreaks involving tens of thousands of people infected. Vitamin A supplementation may be of value in those who are decient, and Tylenol can help keep the fever down, reducing the risk of febrile seizures. Otherwise, there are no eective antibiotics or other treatments for measles. When seizures occur in a child with measles in absence of fever, it can indicate a complication called encephalitis „ inammation of the brain. Children also may experience nausea and vomiting, and they usually have a headache. Confusion and sleepiness are other common symptoms. The diagnosis can be conrmed by an evaluation of the uid around the brain, the cerebrospinal uid, which is sampled via a needle inserted into the lower back. Conrmed encephalitis with measles is treated with steroids. This reduces the risk of permanent brain damage from the infection. Unfortunately, vaccination at 9 months is not adequate protection. Children's immune systems may not be able to fully respond to the vaccine so early. Children are recommended to have the measles vaccine at 12-15 months and again at 4 to 6 years in the United States. In countries where risk of measles mortality remains high, children are vaccinated at 9 months, then again at 15-18 months. During an outbreak, a dose may be given as early as 6 months old, in addition to the other two doses. DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently was diagnosed with kidney disease and was advised to drink eight glasses of water daily. I can only get down three glasses. Is it OK to drink tea instead? Would vitamins help? „ E.K. ANSWER: From the standpoint of your kidneys, tea and coee count as water. Having adequate uid intake is important for your kidneys, but most people who aren't exercising or living in hot or dry environments don't need eight full glasses a day. Vitamins are not necessary for kidney health; however, people with advanced kidney disease often need a special form of vitamin D called calcitriol. DEAR DR. ROACH: I receive literature in the mail about a new miracle cure for enlarged prostate. The ads state that the new pills shrink the prostate back to normal. Is there such a pill, or is this a scam? I am afraid it is pills lled with drywall dust. „ B.F. ANSWER: I'm afraid it's more likely to be a scam than real, but there are a few herbal therapies that have been shown to help „ but not cure „ enlarged prostate glands in men. Saw palmetto is well-known, but most recently was found to be no better than placebo. Betasitosterol, cernilton and Pygeum africanum all are plant extracts with some evidence of benet, at least when it comes to symptoms. You are quite correct that without independent laboratory verication, there is no way to be sure of the quality and purity of dietary supplements. They are not regulated the way prescription drugs (or even foods) are.DEAR ABBY: I have been dating "James" for almost a year. Things have been rough for him recently. The problem is James' mother. She's well meaning, and she has always been incredibly sweet to me, but she has started texting and questioning me about how I am doing, regarding her son and the "trials" he brings to our relationship. Perhaps she asks out of concern for me, but it seems like she's trying to speak on his behalf or defend him somehow, which makes me feel awful. How can I explain to her that something which is meant to be as simple as "Are you doing OK?" is hurting me? „ Twisted Up DEAR TWISTED UP: Because you are uncomfortable with the way these conversations are going, respond that you are ne and ask her how SHE is doing. You do not have to engage in conversations with anyone who makes you uncomfortable, and if someone ventures into sensitive territory, you have every right to say you prefer not to discuss it and change the subject. DEAR ABBY: My husband is still working, although he will retire in a few years. We have been in our home since 1987. Our grandkids live four hours away, and we are thinking about moving near them. We have looked at "over55" communities, and the yards are small and treeless. I love my trees „ especially the magnolia my husband and sons planted many years ago. I also adore seeing all the birds and wildlife. How do other relocators handle the move? „ Getting Ready In Georgia DEAR GETTING READY: If what you will miss the most about your home is the trees, perhaps the over-55 communities in the area to which you are relocating are not for you. Take some time, talk with a real estate agent. However, if an over-55 community is a must, perhaps you can nd one that's near a park where you can go and enjoy the trees and wildlife. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF concerns the downside of having a beachfront house: "Dear Heloise: Summer is drawing to a close „ thank heavens! My husband and I have a beach house, which we thoroughly enjoy. We bought it so my husband of 48 years could recover from a serious heart attack. What we don't enjoy are drop-in visits from people who think that they're staying the week or weekend. So, to people who feel free to drop in, please wait to be invited. This is a home, not a hotel. Show some respect for our privacy." „ A Reader in California Dear Heloise: I love growing tomatoes, but in my tiny yard, there's no room anymore. Any ideas? „ Barb O., Middlesboro, Ky. Barb, you can always grow cherry tomatoes in a hanging basket, or the larger varieties in a pot with a tomato cage. „ HeloiseMeasles vaccination schedule for kids has multiple doses Girlfriend questions texts from boyfriend's mother Rules of the beach houseHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby


Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, August 13, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Being constantly up for critique is a grind, but at least you can take heart in the fact that this is a direct result of being known, signicant and integral to the lives of others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Youll be entering into new challenges, and you could really use a coach. There are behaviors that will be expected, and it will pay to know what they are and exactly how to execute them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Theres an ancient part of your brain that couldnt care less about your hopes and dreams. It wants what it wants „ and now. Its completely irrational. Success depends on your ability to trick it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Should you punish yourself for a mistake? Your aim is to avoid repeating it, and you think the harshness would help you remember. It might indeed motivate you in the short term, but in the long term it would do the opposite. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know what you want with great clarity and detail. You can see it in your imagination. Taking the time to visualize this again and again will help you have the willpower to overcome obstacles and prevail in weaker moments. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Get on your own side. Its important on days such as today, when youre taking on something new. Keep reminding yourself that youre just as worthy as anyone else whos done this before. With condence, youll excel. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Love is a very real human need, but you cant eat it. However, with a degree of contentment, care and a sense of belonging, you will be relaxed, clever and resilient enough to gure out how to make money. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One great thing about the past is that it got you here. Another great thing about it is that the bad parts are over. So bless it and leave it back there, where it belongs. Better days are ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To realize our full potential, our ego needs to shrink, not grow. The desire to feel special is understandable, yet no one should have to feel superior in order to feel worthy of respect and love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take a warm and understanding approach to yourself. Your suering wont lessen if youre hard on yourself. You wont overcome perceived shortcomings by merely demanding it. Try self-compassion instead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Accept yourself with an open heart. The constant need to assess how youre measuring up is exhausting and benets no one. Drop it and enjoy the sense of wholeness and oneness with others that follows. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The correctness of an action may be dicult to discern right now, as there are many facets to consider. Think in terms of doing whats helpful and whats useful instead of merely whats correct. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 13). Interesting meetups, family connections and professional alliances are part of the excellent social luck that visits you over the next 10 weeks. A change in what you oer the world will show you making a dream come true in November and making an important deal in June. Libra and Sagittarius adore you.

An AmericanChinese co-production between Warner Bros. and Chinas Gravity Pictures, it also debuted well overseas, taking in $50.3 million in China and totaling $96.8 million internationally, according to studio estimates Sunday. With an international cast led by Jason Statham and featuring Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson and Winston Chao, The MegŽ cost at least $130 million to make. Following hits like The ShallowsŽ and 47 Meters Down,Ž the shark movie „ 43 years after Steven Spielbergs JawsŽ „ has been showing surprising bite at the box of“ ce. Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief for Warner Bros., said late summer was ideal timing for The Meg.Ž This was a fun, dumb popcorn movie that just looked interesting to the public everywhere around the world,Ž Goldstein said. We dug our heels in and said: This is the right time to go.

Were in a space by ourselves.Ž Traditionally a sleepy time at the box of“ ce, August has helped cement a comeback summer for the movie business. Weekend business was up 25 percent from last year, and the summer is up 11.3 percent, according to comScore. For Warner Bros., which on Wednesday will release the highly touted Crazy Rich Asians,Ž The MegŽ is the studios best opening this year, besting even Spielbergs own Ready Player One.Ž After two weeks at No. 1, Mission: Impossible „ FalloutŽ slid to second place in its third weekend with $20 million. The Paramount Pictures release starring Tom Cruise has pulled in $162 million in three weeks. Lees critically acclaimed BlacKkKlansmanŽ also opened strongly with $10.8 million in 1,512 theaters. The Focus Features release, which took the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in May, was timed to the anniversary of the violent clashes between white nationalists and anti-racism counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. Lees “ lm, produced by Jordan Peele (Get OutŽ), is a true-life tale of AfricanAmerican police detective Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington, son of Denzel), who in 1979 in“ ltrated a Colorado Springs, Colorado, cell of the Ku Klux Klan. The anniversary of Charlottesville was something that was very key to Spike,Ž said Lisa Bunnell, Focus president of distribution. Its obviously a very emotional “ lm that re” ects the times. When audiences respond to that, its what cinema is all about. The state of the country is such that were all feeling really con” icted and alone.

But with a $10 million budget, the tale of an internet-famous boogeyman has a quick path to pro“ tability for Sony.

By Matt BakerTamba Bay TimesGAINESVILLE „ The Florida Gators continued preseason camp Saturday with two and a half hours of practice that were fully open to the media. A few observations: Running back Malik Davis (Jesuit High) looks fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered against Georgia. Hillsborough Countys all-time leading rusher moved well, cut well and had no problem absorbing hits. Davis was second on the team with 526 rushing yards last year, despite only playing in seven games. It looks as if hell be part of a running back corps thats one of the Gators strengths. Cornerback depth looks like a concern. UF was down to four scholarship cornerbacks Saturday. That doesnt leave much wiggle room in case of injury or other attrition. The lack of depth there made it a little hard to evaluate quarterbacks „ did the quarterback make a great throw to help get a receiver open, or was the coverage lacking? Feleipe Franks seemed sharper than Kyle Trask, who struggled early while wearing a glove on his throwing hand. He removed the glove later in practice. UFs top two receivers remain the two transfers, Van Jefferson (Ole Miss) and Trevon Grimes (Ohio State). The Gators havent yet announced whether Jefferson has been granted a waiver for immediate eligibility by the SEC (although both have been cleared by the NCAA). Assuming Jefferson can play, hell be a big target for Franks/Trask. This isnt new, but its still interesting to see T.J. McCoy working as the third-string center after starting nine games there last year. Redshirt junior Nick Buchanan has been working with the starters at that position; he appeared in three games over his first three seasons.By Greg AumanTamba Bay TimesBucs fans who stayed to the very end of Saturdays practice might have been disappointed to see a long field goal attempt by Chandler Catanzaro come up short. That was by design. The Bucs had receiver Adam Humphries parked in the back of the end zone, ready to return a miss on a long field goal. Its another case of Bucs coach Dirk Koetter taking time to practice every possible scenario his team might face during a game, so theyre better prepared when it actually happens. As we know from the college game, that could be a season-changing play,Ž Koetter said, referencing the famous Kick SixŽ play in the 2013 Alabama-Auburn game, where Chris Davis returned a missed field goal 109 yards with no time remaining to give the Tigers an incredible win. Thats just one of the many things that youve got to cover in training camp.Ž In this case, Koetter was making sure his field-goal unit got work on covering such a rare return. He said a situation like the Bucs late 53-yard field goal Thursday, in a normal game, would have the Bucs place a player in the end zone in a regular-season situation if the opponent were kicking. You may have forgotten, but the Bucs and Humphries have realgame experience in such a scenario. In the final game of the 2016 season, Carolinas Graham Gano lined up for a 58-yard field goal with 0:02 left in the first half, and COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FLORIDAFive thoughts from Gators practiceNFL: BUCCANEERS Bucs practicing missed “ eld goal returnsTAMPA BAY TIMESThe Bucs Adam Humphries has returned a missed field goal in a regular-season game, getting 76 yards against the Panthers in the 2016 season finale before he was brought down.

The Stone Crabs would answer back in the bottom of the frame, scoring twice to reduce the deficit to five runs. Left fielder Joey Roach singled to left to plate catcher Rene Pinto. Second baseman Jermaine Palacios would ground into a double play, plating third baseman Kevin Padlo for Charlotte's two runs. The Blue Jays would build an 11-2 lead, with the next Stone Crabs response coming in the 6th inning. Roach and Pinto would once again factor into the scoring, with the former Georgia State Panther's single to right delivering Pinto home.

The cathedral is where most Russian czars since Peter the Great are buried. It is a tough swim not only for its length, but because of strong currents and seaweed in the Neva River.

By CIARAN FAHEYAssociated PressBERLIN „ The 18-yearold Armand Duplantis won a thrilling pole vault competition and British sprinter Dina Asher-Smith powered to her third gold medal at the European Athletics Championships on Sunday. Swedens Duplantis was the star on the final day, soaring to an under20 world record of 6.05 meters. He set it at 5.95 before breaking it twice and extended his own personal best by 12 centimeters. I just knew I need to go higher to solve it. It was crazy and pretty tough for me as I just improved my PB,Ž Duplantis said. I had to switch the poles at the hi g her hei g hts for the ones I have never used before in the competition.Ž World record holder Renaud Lavillenie of France finished with bronze after reaching 5.95 meters, behind Russian Timur Morgunov with a personal best 6 meters. Duplantis rivals, led by Lavillenie, were already congratulating him after he had cleared 6 meters. Duplantis had trained with Lavillenie in France and the 31-year-old shared in the young Swedes celebrations. What he did today was just amazing,Ž Lavillenie said. Asher-Smith, who had already won the womens 100 and defended her 200 title, led Britain to gold in the 4x100 rela y She overtook her Dutch and German rivals on the final straight as Britain won in a world-leading 41.88 seconds. Im glad I was the last one to run, it was easy,Ž the 22-year-old Asher-Smith said. Britain also claimed gold in the mens 4x100, ahead of Turkey in second and the Netherlands. German y s hopes took a tumble in the heats when Lukas Jakubczyk brought teammate Julian Reus down on the final change. Jakubczyk left the stadium with bandages around his head, arms and shoulders, while Reus injured his shoulder. Its bitter because we were well placed in the race,Ž teammate Patrick Domo g ala said. EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS: TRACK & FIELDDuplantis sets U20 record at Euros; 3rd gold for Asher-Smith By STEPHEN WADEAssociated PressTOKYO „ Theyve added a new swimming event to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics „ the 1,500 meter freestyle „ and Katie Ledecky plans to be racing it. This could pose a problem, even for the five-time Olympic champion and 14-time world champion. She won the 200, 400, and 800 two years ago in Rio de Janeiro. Now add to that the 1,500. So is Ledecky planning to perhaps drop the 200, maybe her weakest race, and focus on the longer distances? She lost the 200 a few days ago in the Pan Pacific Championships, her only blemish on a strong showing this week in the Japanese capital. I dont anticipate trying to drop any of them,Ž she said Sunday after winning the 1,500 at the Pan Pacs on the final day of the four-day meet. The meet serves as a dress rehearsal for the Olympics in two years and is the biggest meet of the year for swimmers from the Pacific region. It was held at the Tatsumi swimming center, which is only a five-minute walk from the new Olympic aquatic center under construction. It should be completed early in 2020. Certainly Ledecky wont drop the 1,500. Her time of 15 minutes, 38.97 seconds, was the 10th fastest in history. She now owns nine of the top 10 times in that event „ and the world record. Its something that makes training really challenging and exciting for me to compete in the shorter races,Ž she said. So I have no plans of dropping anything. Plans could change, but I think I still have a lot in me.Ž As a trial for Tokyo, Ledecky is likely to swim all four next year in the world championships in South Korea. I think Im very experienced swimming those events,Ž she said. I think I know how to manage my races and manage my energy.Ž The United States was overpowering in the pool at the Pan Pacs „ especially on the final day. The meet wraps up Tuesday with the outdoor distance events. The Americans won 18 gold medals, ahead of Australia with eight and Japan with six. The Americans also led the overall medal table with 43. China, the Pacifics other swim power, largel y skipped the meet to focus on the Asian Games, which open in a few days in Jakarta, Indonesia. The meet was extra important for American Ryan Murphy. He took the 200 backstroke in 1:53.57, edging Japanese Ryosuke Irie in 1:55.12 and American Austin Katz in 1:56.00. Murphy also won the 100 backstroke earlier in the meet. It was nice to be in Tokyo, and I really wanted to have a good meet here,Ž Murphy said. You know, Im a little superstitious. Hopefully this bodes well for me leading into 2020. Swimming well in a pool here, I think I can swim well in a pool thats two blocks away.Ž SWIMMING: PAN PACIFIC CHAMPIONSHIPSLedecky to tackle all 4 distances in TokyoMLB: BLUE JAYS 2, RAYS 1Another strong Tyler Glasnow start, but Rays fall to Blue JaysBy KEEGAN MATHESONTampa Bay TimesTORONTO „ The Rays might just be on to something with Tyler Glasnow. In his third start since coming over from Pittsburgh in the Chris Archer deal, the towering right-hander pitched five strong innings to continue his strong debut with the Rays, who fell 2-1 to the Blue Jays on Sunday in yet another one-run game but still leave town with a series win. Glasnows standout moment of the game came in the bottom of the fourth with a runner on third base and one out. The Rays shifted their infield to the left and pinched it in with Randal Grichuk at the plate, but Glasnow managed to handle it himself. Grichuk chased a breaking ball for strike two, then struck out on another breaking ball that was buried in the dirt. Glasnow ended the inning with a swinging strikeout of Teoscar Hernandez when he reached back for a 98.7 mph fastball on the outside edge. Glasnow let his emotions break through with that final strike, too, as he skipped off the mound with an audible slap of his glove. Kevin Cash gave Glasnow the opportunity to go out for the bottom of the sixth but quickly went to the bullpen after Glasnow walked the leadoff batter. Jose Alvarado allowed a double to pinch-hitter Kevin Pillar, and both runs eventually came home to put the Blue Jays out in front. Torontos second run of the inning came on a bangbang play at the plate involving reliever Ryne Stanek. With runners on the corners at that point, Grichuk hit a slow roller 10 feet in front of home plate. The moment that Michael Perez threw to first to get Grichuk, Kevin Pillar broke home from third and narrowly beat Staneks tag with a head-first slide. Over his five-plus innings of work, Glasnow was charged with that one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out out six. He has had starts of three, four and five innings since joining the Rays, so Glasnow should be close to taking on a full starters workload in his next outing. After struggling with control issues in the majors and minors, Glasnow did well to stay around the zone again with 48 strikes on 79 pitches. He has issued just three walks over 12 innings with the Rays. Ryan Yarbrough finished the game for Tampa Bay with two innings of scoreless relief, where he allowed one hit and struck out one. Yarbrough was working on extra rest, too, since his last outing came Aug. 5 against the White Sox. Willy Adames put the Rays on the board in the top half of the fourth inning on a fullcount single off Marcus Stroman. Joey Wendle had singled to lead off the inning, then advanced a base on ground outs from Ji-Man Choi an d Kiermaier. Adames ripped the sixth pitch he saw just past the glove of diving Aledmys Diaz at shortstop for the RBI. The closest the Rays came after that was in the top of the seventh, with runners on the corners and two outs. Mallex Smith sliced a ball down the leftfield line than fell just inches foul, but he grounded out to second base on the next pitch he saw to end the inning.

By DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressBALTIMORE „ The attorney for the family of the University of Maryland offensive lineman who died after a strenuous offseason workout is calling for Terrapins football coach DJ Durkin to be fired, citing the abusive culture of the program and the teams failure to properly react after Jordan McNair fell ill on the practice field. The 19-year-old McNair was hospitalized May 29 and died June 13. McNair family attorney Billy Murphy Jr. said Sunday hes seen the preliminary death certificate and has concluded, This is an obvious heatstroke case.Ž Durkin was placed on administrative leave Saturday in the wake of reports that he and his staff verbally abused and humiliated players since his arrival in College Park, Maryland, two years ago. Coach Durkin should be fired immediately,Ž Murphy said. His conduct and the conduct of the coaches was reprehensible. They were not prepared ... to deal with a heatstroke incident.Ž Murphy also contended the climate of the program was all wrong, and cannot be corrected unless Durkin is no longer part of it. Durkin fostered a horrible culture,Ž Murphy said, that included physical and verbalŽ abuse of players. And the third reason he ought to be fired is: How are you going to have a viable football program as long as it is possible for him to become the coach again?Ž Murphy said. Murphy has not yet filed a lawsuit against the school on behalf of the family, but said thats only a matter of time. Dr. Rod Walters, a former college athletic trainer, has been hired by Maryland to head an independent investigation, which is expected to be available by Sept. 15. In the best of all possible worlds we want to wait until that investigation is released,Ž Murphy said. Maryland has put two high-ranking members of the athletic training staff on administrative leave. Murphy said an investigation by his law firm determined the teams head trainer, Wes Robinson, was on the scene when McNair collapsed. We have corroborated facts that Wes Robinson made completely callous statements to Jordan McNair as he was suffering from heatstroke, as his temperature was rising to 106 degrees,Ž Murphy said. He yelled at Jordan McNair, Drag (your butt) across the field. That is absolutely reprehensible and completely reflects the culture that were saying and has been pervading the University of Maryland.Ž Keisha Staples, the mother of junior defensive back Antoine Brooks Jr., said after McNairs death the parents major concern was with the Maryland training staff. Staples said parents she is closest with believed Maryland addressed those concerns by putting Robinson and director of athletic training Steve Nordwall on leave. She had no issues with Durkin, and had little interaction with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who was also placed on leave Saturday. Brooks has never complained about either coach, Staples said. From all the parents that I know personally, theyre in full support of coach Durkin.Ž Staples said parents of players have been reaching out to athletic director Damon Evans to arrange a meeting with him and other university personnel to discuss Durkins situation. Regardless, its too late to correct what happened to McNair on a hot spring day in College Park, Maryland. I think the coaches expected this to be a severe workout because it was their opportunity to find out who was in what shape for football,Ž said Malcolm Ruff, an associate of Murphy, Falcon and Murphy. Ice baths should have been there. Thats the real issue here. You have a young man who is 19 years old who has his entire life ahead of him, but instead of recognizing those symptoms the University of Maryland attempted to re-insert him back into practice.Ž Murphy said the law firm knows of this because, we have spoken to several of the players, and this what they said happened.Ž COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MARYLANDMcNair lawyer calls f or Maryland coach DJ Durkin to be “ redAP PHOTODurkin was placed on administrative leave Saturday in the wake of reports that he and his staff verbally abused and humiliated players since his arrival in College Park, Maryland, two years ago. attacking flags and ran in birdie putts of 10 feet on No. 15 and 7 feet on No. 16 to end the drama. He tapped in for par on the final hole to set the PGA Championship scoring record at 264. It also tied the major championship record that Henrik Stenson set at Royal Troon two years ago in the British Open. Koepka has won three of the last six majors he played, and two of three this year alone. He joined Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only players to win the two U.S. majors that rotate to different courses in the same year. The 28-year-old Floridian also joined Jordan Spieth, Woods, Nicklaus and Tom Watson as the only players with three majors before turning 30 since World War II. Scott hung around by making big putts, just like he hoped, and was tied for the lead until Koepkas birdies. Scott missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the par-5 17th that would have pulled him to within one shot „ right after Koepka missed from the same range „ and then made bogey on the 18th for a 67 to finish alone in third. The St. Louis fans waited 17 years to see Woods „ he last was at Bellerive when the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks canceled a World Golf Championship „ and he delivered a performance that took golf back in time. Thomas Bjorn might have seen it coming. Earlier in the week, as he was cleaning out his locker after withdrawing with an injury, he thought back to Woods getting into contention at Carnoustie last month at the British Open. He recognized who that guy was that day,Ž Bjorn said. Woods was relentless, pumping fists, raising the putter in his left hand, making birdies and charging toward a finish that caused pure pandemonium among one of the largest and noisiest crowds at a major. Without hitting a fairway on the front nine, Woods cut the four-shot deficit to two. Dialed in on the back nine, he dropped an approach into 4 feet on No. 12, got within one shot with a 10-foot birdie on the par-3 13th and, after a bad drive led to bogey, he answered with another approach that hit a foot from the hole. That was as good as it got. Facing the most important drive of the day on the par-5 17th, Woods sent it sailing to the right and it embedded in a hazard along the banks of a creek. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker. Behind him, Koepka holed his two birdie putts. Woods and Koepka played nine holes of a practice round on Wednesday, and the 14-time major champion knew what he was up against. Its tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle,Ž Woods said. What he did at Shinnecock, just bombing it, and then hes doing the same thing here. ... And when a guys doing that and hitting it straight, and as good a putter as he is, its tough to beat.Ž Koepka never imagined a year like this. He missed four months at the start of the year when a partially torn tendon in his left wrist, causing him to sit out the Masters. He outlasted good friend Dustin Johnson at Shinnecock Hills to become the first back-to-back U.S. Open champion in 29 years. And now this. Koepka joked about working out in a public gym this week with Dustin Johnson and not being recognized. He has been motivated by more serious moments, from being left off the notable scoresŽ section of TV coverage at tournaments and even last week, when he was not summoned for a TV interview to preview the PGA Championship. He now is No. 2 in the world, with a shot at overtaking Johnson in two weeks when the FedEx Cup playoffs start. Justin Thomas also had a chance to join Woods as the only back-toback PGA champions in stroke play, and he was tied for the lead briefly on the front nine when Koepka missed fairways and made two straight bogeys. Thomas turned birdie into bogey at the turn with a three-putt from 5 feet, and he missed a short par putt on the 14th to fall back. He shot 68 and tied for sixth. Even with 17 players separated by three shots at one point on the front nine, everyone had to catch Koepka, Woods included.PGAFrom Page 1AP PHOTOTiger Woods reacts to sinking a birdie putt on the ninth green.

Page 6 SP Monday, August 13, 2018 / The SunBy LARRY LAGEAssociated pressBROOKLYN, Mich. „ Kevin Harvick broke a tie atop NASCARs Big 3 with a dominant performance, easily winning at Michigan International Speedway for his Cuphigh seventh victory of the season. His No. 4 Ford finished 3-plus seconds ahead of Brad Keselowskis No. 2 Ford on Sunday. Kyle Busch, who started the day with the points lead, finished third in his No. 18 Toyota „ more than 4 seconds behind Harvick. Busch has won six races this year and Martin Truex Jr. has finished in first four times. The rest of the field has combined to win just six of 23 races. Truex Jr., the third driver in NASCARs Big 3 with Harvick and Busch, was 14th in the 40-car field in his No. 78 Toyota. Keselowski said he couldnt be more aggressive late in the 200-lap race because Harvick was so far ahead. Austin Dillon, in the No. 3 Chevrolet, was fourth followed by Ryan Blaneys No. 12 Ford. Harvick was each of three stages and led 108 laps, more than four times more than anyone else on the 2-mile oval. Truex was running with the leaders during the second stage before running out of gas and going into the pits, which were closed. He was penalized for an uncontrollable tire and pushed to the back of the 40-car field. Soon after a restart early in the race, William Byrons No. 24 Chevrolet got loose and made side-by-side contact with Truex to bring out another caution flag. Denny Hamlin led the field to the green flag for the second straight week, but his No. 11 Toyota could not stay ahead. He ended up eighth at MIS after finished 13th in last weeks race at Watkins Glen.

Associated Press Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo edged MotoGP champion Marc Marquez to win the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday. After swapping the lead several times during the race, Marquez overtook Lorenzo again on the final lap but slowed after slipping on his Honda and ultimately finished 0.130 seconds behind in second. Lorenzos teammate Andrea Dovizioso, who won last year, finished third as Ducati retained its unbeaten record on the course since the Austrian MotoGP returned to the calendar in 2016. Chasing his fifth riders championship, Marquez stretched his lead over Yamahas Valentino Rossi to 59 points. The Italian finished sixth after starting the race in 14th. After his third win of the season, Lorenzo climbed to third in the standings, trailing Marquez by 71 points.

By ERIC WILLEMSENAssociated Press Italian cyclist Matteo Trentin sprinted to gold in the mens road race at the European Championships on Sunday as three-time world champion Peter Sagan quit with 84 kilometers (52 miles) left. Spearheading a leading group of five, Italian teammate Davide Cimolai set up Trentin perfectly to beat Dutch rider Mathieu van der Poel and Belgiums Wout van Aert on the final meters. Spains Jesus Herrada Lopez finished fourth. We decided to heat the race from the start, putting guys in the front, not risking anything and in the end it paid off really good as we had a man everywhere. Its unbelievable,Ž said Trentin, whose victory came a week after fellow Italian Marta Bastianelli won the womens race. The five leaders were left from a breakaway group which was reduced following one of many crashes amid persistent rain in a grueling race. Riders completed 16 laps of the 14.4-kilometer course with some tight turns on slippery cobble stones in the shopping streets of Glasgows center. The race got its expected sprint finish „ though without pre-race favorite Sagan, as the Slovakian rider stepped off his bike after two-thirds of the race. I was not in good shape. If you have no legs on this circuit... you need to be in good shape,Ž Sagan told reporters outside the Slovakian team bus. I have still a lot of pain from the crash from the Tour de France.Ž Last month, Sagan crashed heavily on a descent of the 17th stage, but he stayed in the event and ultimately crossed the line in Paris to win his sixth green jersey. Sagan had won the inaugural edition of road cyclings European Championship two years ago, while Alexander Kristoff of Norway claimed the title last year. Sagans quest for another European title was first in doubt after he lost touch with the peloton, left behind after a slow wheel change forced him to catch up with the pack. Later, the Slovak rider dropped behind again, and this time he called it a race. It was a very technical circuit and it was pretty hard,Ž Sagan said. In the end, well, I still had a lot of pain in my back and in my hip and I think I need more time to recover from that crash.Ž Sagan said he still planned to compete in the Cyclassics in Hamburg next Sunday and the Vuelta, which starts in two weeks time. The Grand Tour event in Spain should set him up for the defense of his world title in Innsbruck, on a course requiring a lot of climbing in the Austrian Alps in September. However, chasing a record fourth rainbow jersey was not on his mind yet. I have still some races, Hamburg, Vuelta, different races,Ž Sagan said. I will fight my best for the end of the season.Ž The race had already been deprived of an anticipated showdown between Sagan and another sprinting standout, Mark Cavendish. The British racer pulled out three days ago on medical advice after struggling with illness and injuries throughout the season. Also, Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas was missing on the course where he won the Commonwealth Games in 2014. In other events, Spanish golfer Pedro Oriol teamed up with Scott Fernandez to win the mens team event, beating Birgir Hafthorsson and Axel Boasson, who were part of Icelands golden team at Saturdays mixed competition. Swedens Cajsa Persson and Linda Wessberg won the womens event at Gleneagles. Artur Dalaloyan added two more golds to Russias medal haul in gymnastics by winning the vault and parallel bar events of the mens apparatus finals. EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS: CYCLINGItalian cyclist Trentin sprints to Euro gold as Sagan quitsBy JOE KAYAssociated PressMASON, Ohio „ For the first time in more than a year, the Big FourŽ is back together at the Western & Southern Open. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray highlight the mens bracket that begins Monday in a tournament that will help gauge how several prominent players are recovering from setbacks as the U.S. Open approaches. Murray missed 11 months following hip surgery and tried to return for Wimbledon, but withdrew when he wasnt satisfied with his workouts. Cincinnati will be his fourth tournament in his comeback. He reached the quarterfinals at Washington two weeks ago, his best result. Murray will play Lucas Pouille in the opening round on Monday afternoon. One of the Big FourŽ won the title at Cincinnati in 10 of the last 13 years, with Bulgarias Grigor Dimitrov taking it in 2017. Dimitrov didnt drop a set and lost his serve only once while getting his first Masters title. The second-ranked Federer has a record seven titles in Cincinnati, which is one of his favorite tournaments with its low-key setting. He and No. 1-ranked Nadal have been locked in a season-long, backand-forth atop the rankings, exchanging the top spot six times in the last six months. Nadal is guaranteed to take the top ranking into the U.S. Open. Nadal won his fifth title of the year on Sunday in Toronto, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2, 7-6 (4). While Federer has had great success in Cincinnati „ winning 41 of his last 45 matches „ Djokovic has never won a Western & Southern title „ the only ATP Masters 1000 championship to elude him. Hes reached the finals five times and lost every time, acknowledging that the pressure has played a part. Djokovic is trying once again to become the first to win all nine ATP Masters events. In the womens bracket, Serena Williams faces Daria Gavrilova on Monday night, her first match since she suffered the most lopsided defeat of her career. The 23-time Grand Slam champion lost 6-1, 6-0 to Johanna Konta in San Jose, then withdrew from the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Williams had a baby in September and developed blood clots. She was the runner-up at Wimbledon last month, her fourth tournament since she returned to the tour. When she withdrew from the Rogers Cup, the 36-year-old Williams said shes been struggling with postpartum emotions. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk,Ž Williams said in an Instagram post Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom.Ž Top-ranked Simona Halep is fresh off another title. She beat Sloane Stephens 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-4 for her third title this year „ she also beat Stephens for the French Open title. Stephens is preparing to defend her surprising U.S. Open title last year. She was the runner-up in the French Open, but lost in the opening round at Wimbledon for the second straight year. The loss to Halep on Sunday left her 0-8 against No. 1-ranked players. TENNIS: WESTERN & SOUTHERN OPENReunion time: Big 4 back together at Cincinnati TENNIS: ROGERS CUPSimona Halep wins in Montreal, beating Sloane StephensAssociated Press Top-ranked Simona Halep outlasted thirdranked Sloane Stephens 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-4 on Sunday to win her second Rogers Cup title. The 26-year-old Romanian star also won the hard-court event that rotates between Toronto and Montreal in 2016 in Montreal. In a rematch of Haleps French Open final victory, she overcame Stephens in the match that had 15 service breaks. Halep has won her last six meetings with the 25-year-old American. Stephens, preparing for her U.S. Open title defense, is 0-8 against No. 1-ranked players. I couldnt believe that its over,Ž Halep said. I was really tired. I feel like these tournaments, at this level, you have to have one day off between the matches. Its really tough. Its brutal. This week it was really tough.Ž Halep won her third title of the year and 18th overall. Both matches were crazy good,Ž Halep said about the French and Rogers finals. She makes me play better and better every time we meet each other. Thats a great thing for me. I feel like she improved in her mental (side) also. She doesnt give up that much now. Of course, shes a strong player. I think shes a complex player. She has everything.Ž A large Romanian contingent waving their red and yellow flags chanted Haleps name between points. However, there were just as many pulling for Stephens in a match of two players who dont overpower with their serve but hammer groundstrokes down the lines. I thought I played well, I thought she played well,Ž Stephens said. Obviously, in a final, you hope for matches like that „ super competitive, high energy. Theres nothing more than you could hope for in a final. Its obviously upsetting that I didnt win, but I think I got better than the last final we played. Yeah, its disappointing, but I think this will help me moving forward, getting ready to go into (Cincinnati) and the U.S. Open.ŽAP PHOTOSimona Halep of Romania reacts after defeating Sloane Stephens of the United States to win the final of the Rogers Cup tennis tournament Sunday.
