NEWS WIRE Good morning To Orville Doyle Thanks for reading! newssun TheNewsSun By MARC VALERO Staff Writer SEBRING The big updating of the School Board of Highlands Countys District Policy Manual is complete after about a year in the works and is now in the approval process. In June 2017, the School Board ap proved an agreement, for policy updat ing, with Delaware-based Neola Inc. for $25,635 to be paid over a period of four years. With the Neola contract, the district changed consulting rms from the one that previously updated board policies to the new rm that has drafted policy language for 24 Florida school districts. At its meeting on Tuesday, the School Board will consider approval to advertise the revisions to the School Board policy for adoption. Deputy Superintendent Andrew Lethbridge said it is stage two in the three-stage process of the APA (adminis trative procedures act). The draft policies can be viewed on the districts website: www2.highlands.k12. .us. Go to School Board, Board Policy, Proposed SBHC Policy Manual, then Policies at the top right of the webpage and then draft. The districts legal advertisement that was published in Highlands News-Sun states that The Board Policies have been updated and revised in aggregate in order to bring all policies in com pliance with Florida Statutes, Florida Administrative Code and Regulations and Department of Education guidelines in the areas of administration, programs and curriculum, instructional staff, support staff, students, nance, proper ty, operations, community relations and miscellaneous. Districts revised policy manual in the adoption process By KIM LEATHERMAN Staff Writer SEBRING Motorists speeding along Orange Blossom Avenue will soon pay hefty nes. The Sebring Police Department has placed stop signs on the east and west sides of Orange Blossom Avenue at 6th Street. The signs were installed on Monday, Aug. 13. Cmdr. Curtis Hart, public informa tion ofcer with the Sebring Police Department, said a trafc study revealed the need for the stop signs. Weve had numerous complaints over the years of vehicles traveling too fast down the roadway and the trafc increasing, he said. So, we did a trafc study and it warranted putting the stop signs there. The study began about two months ago, according to Hart. It included black tubing that ran across the roadway. Within the tubing, measuring devices record data such as car counts and their speeds. The Police Department took the information it acquired from the trafc study and brought it to city ofcials. The stop signs were approved upon seeing the results. There is advanced warning of the stop signs as there have never been signs on that roadway before. The police ofcers are willing to give motorists a grace period within reason. Normally, whenever there is any type of deviation in normal trafc ow, usually, in our department, we instruct our ofcers to try to educate for the rst couple weeks before enforcing, Hart said. Drivers be aware New stop sign on Orange Blossom Ave. By MELISSA MAIN Staff Writer SEBRING Shootings, drug sales and crime have plagued the Washington Heights neighborhood, but churches and community leaders have joined together to provide a solution a youth center for at-risk youth. Saturday, the commu nity celebrated the grand opening of the youth center in Bountiful Blessings Churchs large gymnasium at 820 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. This facility is in the heart of the Washington Heights neighborhood. This building provides the perfect location, but two years ago, when community leaders decided to reach the Washington Heights neigh borhood, the gymnasium was not yet completed. The shell of the building was there, but it needed to be nished. Community leaders wanted to make it an inviting place for youth. To accomplish this vision of reaching the youth, a group of leaders from the community formed a group called United Together. This group has prayed, raised funds and organized a program for the youth in downtown Sebring. Some of the funds were used to install ooring in the gymnasium and two air conditioners. The spokesperson for United Together is Dr. Anthony Bobo from Bountiful Blessings Church. Bobo said, This group was formulated as a result of shootings. Three young men were killed in one weekend. The building is now nished and the United Together team decided to have Youth for Christ run the program at the center.

Only two will go to the general election Nov. 6. Audrey Ann Asciutto, D-Sebring, and Nicholas Mrozowski, D-Okeechobee, will face off in the Democratic primary Aug. 28. One will then run against incumbent Rep. Cary Pigman, R-Avon Park, seeking a “nal term. Pigman said Wednesday he was honored to know both of them. All three have lived, or still live, in Highlands County. Both Asciutto and Mrozowski attended school locally, and Asciuttos children still do. All three want to help Floridas Heartland from Tallahassee.Highlands economyAsciutto said people in Highlands County have told her they need affordable workforce housing, both for current employers and new industries. The state has a budget for it, she said, but funds get diverted. Mrozowski said legislators should listen to chambers of commerce and county commissions. He said hes also gotten complaints that state housing funding doesnt get utilized enough, if at all. Pigman sees a need for better workforce education and better education in general. He favors the state college system, with focus on professional work staff and vocational training. He also said communities should have a pro-business focus. Later in the forum, both Asciutto and Mrozowski said salaries should increase.Helping citrusMrozowski said the state needs to give growers more opportunities and/ or provide a subsidy and assistance for growers to move into another industry if they have the opportunity to do so.Ž Asciutto said shed also like to see that. Its no secret. Weve all talked about it. For the last decade, theyve been in the red,Ž Asciutto said. And unfortunately, theres no end in sight. God bless the ones who are still in the business, because they pull themselves up by their bootstraps every single day.Ž However, she said, she would also like to see more money put into research on citrus greening by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). And we did that,Ž Pigman said, this year with $18 million additional funding into IFAS for citrus greening research. This problem is going to be solved through research.ŽDrainage and oodingSo this is a two-hour talk limited to two minutes,Ž Pigman joked. He said thats the job of the states water management districts and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Legislature funds the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, a 25-plus-year plan that will cost into the billions of dollars. The people who clamor for a solution right now are delirious. Its not a solution right now. Its long term,Ž Pigman said. Mrozowski said there are some issues with getting land for drainage easments. Some projects will happen sooner, he said: Four or “ve years from now. Asciutto said she needed to do more research on the issue, and also discussed the need to convert septic tanks to sewers.Mental healthHighlands County needs mental health providers, Asciutto said, and being a rural county, access to treatment is limited for an average, everyday person.Ž She would like is to be available in every city. Mrozowski said it would require joint effort between state and federal government. What I see as an issue is just plain old money,Ž Mrozowski said: Finding funds is the key. Pigman said he wasnt sure Highlands County needs a Crisis Stabilization Unit. As an emergency room physician, he BakerActs someone regularly. He said Bartows facility is responsive but “lls quickly. There is a queue to get there,Ž Pigman said. He said the Tri-County Human Services facility does provide local access, and he said the Legislature now funds residency programs, which states dont do, and school-based mental health. However, thats not enough. We need more,Ž Pigman said. And as we can, we will (have them), in an ef“cient fashion.ŽEducationMrozowski said the nations fourth largest gross domestic product has below-averageŽ students and funding: $7,000 per student versus the national average of $12,000. Pigman said the House has increase funding each year: $7,100 per student, $100 more than last year. However, he said raising education funding means increasing burdens on local property tax and instituting state sales tax. Asciutto said schools have been underfunded for a while and teacher turnover is too high. She said recent increases are for school hardeningŽ to increase safety and dont help students directly. She also said funding should stop going to charter schools or scholarships for students transferring to avoid bullies. I think the solution to that should be to address the bully in the school. Dont be sending kids somewhere else,Ž Asciutto said.Fossil fuelsMrozowski would like to see laws against fracking or offshore drilling in Florida, which could mess up the landscape of a tourism state. Pigman said fracking allows the nation to export relatively clean energy. He said he authored a bill to regulate fracking because it was unregulated in Florida. As for offshore drilling, he agreed with Mrozowski, and was glad to see Florida Power & Light operating 16 percent off renewable energy. Asciutto, a proponent of residential-based solar power, said 800 scienti“c studies show environmental and health dangers of fracking. Even if its not in my community, I dont want that in any community, at all,Ž she said.State income taxMrozowski said Florida does well without a state income tax, and as long as the state spends wisely the tax will not be needed. No. Not even over my dead body,Ž Pigman said. Something we can all agree on,Ž Asciutto said: No. No! Noooooo!Ž She said more than 13,000 local families make less than $30,000 per year, and 6,235 families earn from $10,000-$20,000. She said if the state wants more tax, it can tax corporations. If they want to move, she said Floridas population „ the third largest in the U.S. „ is a good bargaining tool.Media/public relationsTo improve media and public relations, Ascuitto said she would meet regularly with the public, particularly civic and teacher organizations. On the local level, she said she has great respect for the press. On the national level, she said attacks in word and bullets have been detrimental. Mrozowski said a good relationship with media is key to keeping in touch with the public, but also likes the idea of town halls and social networking. He also said people should stop demonizing the media. Pigman said he uses a newsletter and social media and stays available for interviews. He said cultivating contacts among reporters, on-record and off, makes the difference.How to help economy, citrus, educationThree House candidates discuss Legislative role PHIL ATTINGER/STAFFFrom left, Nicholas Mrozowski, D-Okeechobee, gives his introduction alongside Audrey Asciutto, D-Sebring, and Rep.

By MELISSA MAINStaff WriterLAKE PLACID „ A Lake Placid man allegedly choked and punched a 15-year-old girl, and when a woman who lived in the house tried to intervene and help, he threw her against a wall and injured her shoulder, authorities said. On Thursday, Lake Placid Police Department charged Brendan Michael Casey, 28, of Lake Placid, with felony battery by strangulation, cruelty toward a child/ aggravated battery on a child, three counts of witness tampering during a “rst-degree felony investigation and probation violation. According to the Highlands County Clerk of Court records, Casey was found guilty of domestic battery on July 12. Due to the nature of the investigation, three police of“cers were at the scene. A witness reported seeing Casey choke and punch the victim in the front yard. The witness stated that she yelled at them to stop. The witness also called in the incident. After hearing from the witness, the of“cers talked with the victim who was crying and covering half of her face with a blanket, the report stated. The victim told of“cers that she had suffered from an asthma attack, but she avoided eye contact while making the statement, which led them to believe that they should talk to her alone, the authorities stated. According to the arrest report, an of“cer requested to speak with the victim alone, but Casey protested. Casey wanted the other female who lived in the house to be present during the talk. However, the of“cer informed Casey that he did not need his permission to talk with her since she was a victim, not a suspect. When the of“cer talked to the victim alone, he reported that she appeared scared and nervous. The of“cer stated that he told the victim that she did not need to be afraid to tell the truth, the report said. At this point, the victim stated that Casey became angry with her when she did not want to give him her phone. According to the victim, Casey pushed her against the fence and began choking her to the point where she could not breathe. She tried to “ght back, but Casey punched her in the back, authorities added. One of“cer placed Casey under arrest, and another spoke with the other female who lived in the household. This female reported that she had tried to intervene and stop Casey from attacking the victim, and Casey threw her against a wall, injuring her shoulder. An of“cer requested Emergency Medical Services to be dispatched to the scene to examine both females. Casey allegedly came into the living room and threatened both of the victims to say that the teenage girl had an asthma attack.Ž Both the females stated that they had been told to tell law enforcement that the girl had an asthma attack. The adult woman in the house reported that Casey had drunk about eight beers that day, and he always gets violent when he drinks,Ž the report said.Man charged with battery on child, strangulation CASEYBy MELISSA MAINStaff WriterSEBRING „ A Sebring man allegedly punched a woman in the face and head, choked her and held her against her will, according to an arrest report. On Thursday, Sebring Police Department charged Jireh Shalon Williams, 31, of Sebring, with battery that caused bodily harm, domestic battery by strangulation and kidnapping/false imprisonment. At approximately 2 p.m., Williams approached his live-in girlfriend at their residence and started an argument with her, according to the report. The victim stated that she was punched in the left side of her face and the back of her head. She also stated that Williams grabbed her from behind and started to choke her until she could not breathe,Ž authorities added. Williams finally relented from choking her, but he pinned her down on the bed for approximately 30 minutes, the report stated. The victim repeatedly asked to be released, and Williams did release her when she told him that she needed to pick up her son and that he could go with her, the victim stated. The victim stated that she drove to Saunaks Store and told Williams she wanted a drink. When Williams went into the store to get the drink, she left the premises, the report stated. The victim approached a police officer and reported the domestic battery complaint, according to the report. The police officer stated that he took pictures of her face, head and neck, and he advised that he did see some slight swelling around her left eye. At around 9:40 p.m. the victim made contact with Central Dispatch and advised that Williams was outside her home, the report stated. When a police officer arrived on the scene, Williams fled on foot, but he was later found in the back parking lot of the Sebring Flea Market, authorities stated. At this point, he was placed under arrest.Sebring man charged with choking, false imprisonment WILLIAMS

PAGE 3 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A3By ELAINE LEVEYHistorically SpeakingI get emails. Bill Norcross writes, Golf history in Sebring may not be as extensive as other golf venues but it still is interesting to remember what and who played here. An example is Harder Hall and the long history of the professionals who are posted on the clubhouse wooden placards „ Sam Snead, Kathy Woodsworth, Pete and Alice DyeƒMany other super stars of the past. Harder Hall and Kenilworth were the Southern winter stops for Professionals along with Sarasota and Naples and Miami, just like the tour does today. Pete Dye (now 92) is a renowned Golf Course Designer. Sam and Kathy won more than 80 tournaments each. The LPGA Futures held in January feature LPGA players who were learning their trade and played Harder Hall as a stepping stone to fame. Many alum are playing today and very well because of the experiences gained by playing under all kinds of conditions „ good or bad.Ž I found the description of the Kenilworth golf course interesting plus the amenities, and the worker Douglas Jewell who actually worked the course (1971-72). The Roses, were owners of the golf course and Bob Baldassari, a friend of mine, was the Gol“ng Professional at that time. Would like to hear more about Sebring in those days before the memories become more faded and people pass away.Ž Sun N Lake, a 36 hole complex, has an excellent course. Deer RunŽ, was designed by a fellow from Lake Placid named Walter (Fred? Dyer). Dyer designed only one course which has been called a classic and very interesting. As Chairman of the Sun N Lake Golf Committee, I asked to have a Members luncheon with Dyer, but we could never “nd the time. I thought it would be very interesting to hear his thoughts on construction in the 1970sŽ Pinecrest Golf course was designed by Donald Ross, the famous architect of Pinehurst (North Carolina) and many other famous resorts all over the eastern part of the USA. Donald Ross designed hundreds of courses, considering the time (1920s) and the limited transportation then. Ross has a preservation society of Ross followers who travel country wide to play all his courses. Jack OLeary, golf writer for the Boston Herald, told me the Ross design courses were almost like a design kitŽ. The plans of 18 holes would be on paper and construction details were applied, but still the thought process must have been enormous.Ž I have received many comments from your article and some golfers want more if possible. History is not a ”eeting thing.Ž Correction on recent article on Baseball history in Sebring: Ken Filppula of Avon Park said, The Orange Belt League by the Sebring Firemen didnt end in the 1930s. It lasted into the 1950s because I went to it.Ž Actually the last game was played in 1955. In that year, the Firemen won the last Orange Belt League championship by beating Wauchula 2-1 in Wauchula. People found another form of entertainment; staying home watching television.

Highlands County residents were looking forward to the car show, live band, vendors, food and the finale event „ laps around the raceway. However, Sebring Thunder announced on its Facebook page on July 17 that the event was canceled due to lack of volunteers.

She passed away comfortably at home with her family by her side and will be missed. She was born on March 28, 1934, the seventh of nine children born to Hazel and Ervin Baumgarten. She was raised in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. She was predeceased by her parents and eight siblings. Happily married to Rudy Angermeier for 64 years, she was blessed with four children, Christy Vertin (Avon Park, Florida), Eric Angermeier (Westerville, Ohio), Therese Simon Plumb (Oldsmar, Florida) and Martin Angermeier (Fraser, Michigan); six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and was considered a mother to her niece, Sandra Vogt (Park City, Utah).

OBITUARIES By KIM LEATHERMAN Staff WriterLAKE PLACID „ It has been three years in the making, but Highway Park will get a sidewalk. The Neighborhood Council attended the Highlands County Board of County Commission meeting on Aug. 7 and was ecstatic when the matter was “nally approved. The sidewalk will run from the bar (not including the bar) on Crestmore Drive and up Washington Street to the neighborhood resource center. According to Highlands County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr., the sidewalk is not very long. The work consists of constructing approximately 330 linear feet of sidewalk, seven parking spaces, and installation of sod,Ž Howerton said in an email. Evelyn Colon, Highway Park Neighborhood Council president, said the county has not given them a start date for the project, but she hopes it is completed before the year is out. The county budgeted $83,000 but the expenditures for the project are estimated at $76,500. Excavation Point Inc. won the bid at $61,436. The only other bid was from Cobb, a non-local company, with the bid of $92,564. The process took longer than normal as all the business owners and neighbors had to agree to the sidewalk. The sidewalk will be able to be seen from U.S. 27, which Colon is happy about. The HPNC would like to show the positive efforts that are being made in the community. This means that we have “nally entered the modern age because we will “nally have sidewalks started in our community,Ž Colon said. This community is 90-something years old and we are “nally getting our sidewalks in 2018. That says something. We are very happy. We hope this will be the beginning of positive future changes.Ž The Highway Park Neighborhood Council would like to see additional sidewalks to keep its pedestrians safer. They are taking a waitand-see approach before taking on the challenge of any other sidewalks until this project is finished. They would like to finish Crestmore Drive before starting other sidewalk projects. Some future projects for the Highway Park Neighborhood Council include possibly becoming a special district. It will be a challenge,Ž Colon said. We have to get with all our community to see if they want to change the Highway Park Special District, which is now the special lighting district. We are going to have to do all of that and we know it will take months to do. We have to educate everyone and make sure there are no serious taxes.ŽHighway Park to get sidewalk „ finally COURTESY PHOTO/HCBOCCHighway Park will soon get a new sidewalk.

Readers may also email Letters to the Editor to If we were Gov. Rick Scotts campaign manager, we would urge him to immediately announce a multi-million-dollar study of the states water problems. When we say water problems we mean the algae oozing from Lake Okeechobee and the red tide choking our beaches. The governor could use some of the $700 million he slashed from the states water management districts in his first couple of years in office. That was money that would have paid for things like monitoring water quality. The South Florida district saw its budget go from $1.07 billion in 2011 to $576 million in 2012. Our own Southwest Florida Water Management Districts budget was cut by $124 million in 2012. Scott was proud of the cuts to the state budget claiming in a radio address in 2011 that he took actionŽ to cut more than $700 millionŽ from the states five water management districts. To be transparent, we should add that in the past couple of years he has restored about $300 million of that money. And, no one can prove that cutting that money had anything to do with the terrible problems we have right now. It could be just a coincidence. But funding a study is, in our book, a necessary first step toward trying to avoid another summer like the one beach-goers, business owners and those who just enjoy a nice day on the water are experiencing. Its nasty, its frustrating and its killing Florida tourism. Red tide, which is nothing new to Florida, has killed thousands, probably millions, of fish and a whole bunch of turtles and manatees. It can cause respiratory irritation for humans and, for those with severe or chronic respiratory problems, it can result in a serious illness. Gov. Scott has declared a state of emergency. He has agreed to fund Visit Florida and Mote Marine with $600,000 or so in cash to pay for monitoring the situation and to begin a campaign to bring tourists back to our beaches „ when they are clean of dead fish of course. Theories abound as to why red tide is so pervasive this summer. Some would tie it to the algae-clogged Lake Okeechobee which has sent runoff down the Caloosahatchee River to our beaches and bays along the Gulf Coast. The idea is that nutrients from that goop are feeding the red tide and keeping it close to the beach. Another theory is that climate change „ a term the governor detests „ has warmed the Gulf and is helping red tide survive. One weather service said the Gulf reached 90 degrees in May this year „ the earliest in history. A warmer Gulf also means a better environment for hurricanes, should they form there or survive the cooler Atlantic Ocean to reach us. Red tide was not caused by Rick Scott. But the people along the Gulf Coast sure would like to know what did cause this years outbreak to be called the worst in memory by residents who have lived here for decades. The only sure way to figure it all out is with an indepth, comprehensive study that, we hope, could lead to some ideas on how to never have to suffer through another summer like this one. An editorial from Port Charlotte Sun.Its time to fund a water studyStop bickering, shake handsI have not written a letter to the editor that I recall, but I cannot let this one go by. Your opinion or view in the Aug. 16 column was all about freedom of the press. I left Massachusetts as an IndependentŽ so that I could vote for the best person running in either party, but here I go. You jumped on the Anti-Trump Bandwagon because of his fake newsŽ etc. Why if 91 percent of the news is anti-Trump should he not “ ght back? The news now is like the schoolyard bully and Trump is “ ghting back. Someone has to put an end to all this bickering and shake hands for the good of our country and your readers.Thomas Breeds SebringFast action on streetlightThis past Tuesday (Aug. 14) I wrote a letter regarding a streetlight that needed repair or replacement. Today (Aug. 16) as I drove to U.S. 27 and Lake Francis Road, I beheld a brand new streetlight, which had magically appeared. Thank you to the county commissioners of“ ce and the county administrator for making this happen so rapidly. This shows the power of the press and we are in trouble if the freedom of the press is ever sti” ed. I thank you for all the residents who reside on Lake Francis Road and surrounding streets.Edward Cunningham Lake PlacidVote wiselyThe ability to communicate is intrinsic in our DNA. The major problem is listening to what we are exposed to and then using our individual capacity to decide what decision we should take and how we should respond to situations. There is little doubt that what we do and say in” uence those around us to either approve or disapprove. The “ nal decision will be what we think of ourselves. If we sleep well with our opinions that is a bonus. There are things going on in our America that previous Americans “ nd appalling. Our president is much like a coney showman, he tells you one thing and then changes the story constantly. It is very similar to a cup game: under which cup lies the truth is the trick. He tells people to act immature and then he tells you he will defend you for punching people around. He loves the military and embarrasses a Gold Star family. He mocks a journalist who is doing his job by shaking around like a man hit with a taser. He insults our intelligence community, proclaims that the free press is the enemy of a free society. He proudly proclaims they should lock up a government of“ cial who after intensive investigation was found guilty of no provable offense. There seems to be no limit of sexual abuse complaints about him, but in his world everybody lies except him. His government reminds me of Joseph Goebbels who said, keep telling the same lies and soon people will come to accept it as truth. He makes payments to party girls because as Bill Clinton has said, he can. He sides with Russia and belittles this country, which has given up 1.1 million military lives to insure his free speech and reckless behavior. This is no longer the country that my family served and would have willingly given up their lives for. Its getting time to vote again and I sincerely hope that you put as much effort in understanding who you are going to support as the hundreds of thousands of men and women spend their hours protecting us, home and abroad. Choose wisely. The next several generations will remember what you do.Ray Trypuc SebringYOUR VIEW Like any journalist, I have spent the majority of my career reporting on events, good and bad, and telling the stories of our community. I spent another portion of my career sitting behind a desk more than spending time in the “ eld.Ž Normally, an editor leaves the writing to the reporters. However, there are times that it becomes impossible to tell all of the stories that need to be told without the editors getting involved. Such was the case a couple of weeks ago when all of the reporters were headed to meetings on one particular night. It was the same night that the Highlands County Sheriffs Of“ ce was hosting the National Night Out events in 10 different communities in the county. Three of those communities had never had the program there before. What an opportunity. I grabbed my notebook and camera and away I went, just like so many times before. When the time and the event would allow, Ive always enjoyed having one of my children go with me. Such was the case this particular evening. As we pulled up to the old Hopewell School in Avon Park, my son and I talked about the great condition the buildings were in. I explained to him that the school used to be for the citys kindergarten and “ rst grade students, and prior to that it was the school that served the Southside community. As the editor, we sometimes get to pick stories we want to write. That was the case last week when Georgia Dawkins called to tell me she was home for a few days and wanted to see me. It was the perfect opportunity to get to hug her neck, but also tell Highlands County residents about her newly published book, Everybody Knows: The Power of Being In Position.Ž Georgia is one of the several young people who have come through our newsroom as a high school student who showed promise or a college intern. She showed promise back in 2006 and has proven that a shadow is having a hard time keeping up with her. I wont spoil her story here. Look for it elsewhere in the Highlands News-Sun, but if you get the opportunity, get over to Starbucks Tuesday evening to meet Georgia and pick up a copy of her book. Shell be there to autograph it for you. There have been several who have come through the newsroom. Georgia is just one of them. Jarrett Baker is another Sebring High School student who eventually was added to our payroll before going on to bigger and better things. Today, his light is shining brightly as an associate manager at ESPN. Brett Barrouquere worked in our newsroom for a while in the 1990s. He is now working for the Associated Press. Trey (Christy) Nazzaro came to us as a young writer. His path led him to get his law degree, and he is now the attorney for the town of Gulf Stream. Dan Hoehne, who once serve as the weeklys sports editor, has also recently authored a book titled Hi!Ž They have followed a dream to something bigger, something different and Im proud of each one of them. Many of the young people who have come through the newsroom as interns or high school students have stayed in touch. Thank you Facebook for making that a little easier. Many of the former staff members have also stayed in touch. Im grateful to keep those connections. Every opportunity I get to speak with young people, I love to encourage them in the world of journalism. For me, it has been a career of working with some honorable writers and getting to know some really talented young people. That doesnt even bring to light the number of fabulous people who have lived or do live right here in Highlands County, the ones who have invited me into their homes and their lives to allow me to share a little about them through the pages of our newspaper.

PAGE 7 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7Youth for Christ Director Tanya Taylor said people from Youth for Christ will be going to the public schools and inviting students to attend. Southside Bapist Church Associate Pastor Ryan Myhre will direct the program at the youth center. Youth for Christ has a ministry model that is used with urban youth called City Life, and Myhre will be implementing this model at the youth center. City Life seeks to create deep change in urban neighborhoods by helping students become the leaders that their community needs. The kick-off event for both middle and high school students is from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 24. However, after the kick-off, the two groups will be divided. Middle school students will meet at the youth center from 3-5:30 p.m. Thursdays. High school students will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Fridays.The “rst day of actual programming will be Thursday, Aug. 30. Volunteers will be helping with the programming, and all volunteers have received a background check through the public school system, Taylor said. In the future, Youth for Christ hopes to increase the programming from two days a week to “ve. Myrhe said they have plans to install two professional-style basketball hoops. The youth center has big plans for growth, but it is starting out at a level the ministry can safely sustain. Already, Avon Park leaders are requesting a youth center, Taylor said. This model can be replicated in Avon Park and Lake Placid. Both of these communities need a teen center,Ž she said. Churches in downtown Sebring have been promoting the youth center, and it designed primarily for students who live in the downtown area and can walk to the facility, Taylor said.YOUTHFROM PAGE 1AThe legal advertisement seems to cover all bases in allaying any fears that the districts policy updates would have far reaching impact.

Lake Placid Montessori Academy started its school year Aug. 13 serving children from age 2 through 12th-grade. Owner Jennifer Payne said the academy has a new middle school teacher with the former middle school teacher retiring. The rest of the roster remains and the school has added some new students, she said. The academy continues to operate on two campuses with the preschool on Main Avenue and the K-1 classes at leased space at the South Florida State College Lake Placid Center. We are off to a good start this year and looking forward to a good and busy year,Ž Payne said. The school will have new testing this year and a new school-wide initiative „ Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible.Ž At Parkview Pre-K and Prep Academy, Avon Park, Director Brittany McGuire said, Everyone was very eager and excited to be back at school. We are looking forward to moving into our new building within the next couple of weeks.

PAGE 9 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A9 LOCAL SPORTS Special To Highlands News-SunTwo races after a hard-earned maiden victory for longtime IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge competitors Team TGM, the teams No. 46 MercedesAMG GT4 and co-drivers Owen Trinkler and Hugh Plumb returned to victory lane in a challenging Biscuitville Grand Prix at VIRginia International Raceway. A brief rainstorm early in the race that drenched half of the 3.27-mile VIR circuit played havoc with the race strategy for many of the teams, but it ended up playing right into the hands of Team TGM. While many opted to switch to rain tires, Trinkler bravely opted to remain on the standard dry-weather slicks from Continental Tire. As the course dried, Trinkler worked his way forward and took the lead for the “rst time with just over one hour remaining in the race when Andrew Davis brought the race-leading No. 71 Rebel Rock Racing Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R onto pit lane. Trinkler surrendered the lead with slightly more than 46 minutes remaining when he pitted to turn the car over to Plumb, and for most of the next half hour, the battle for the lead came down to Robin Liddell „ who had taken over in the No. 71 from Davis „ and Jesse Lazare in the No. 69 Motorsports In Action McLaren GT4. But with 14 minutes remaining, both Lazare, who took the lead when Trinkler pitted, and Liddell came to pit road for one last splash of fuel. Plumb, on the other hand, had plenty of fuel to make it to the “nish without another pit stop and he cruised to victory 6.046 seconds over Lazare. It was Plumbs fourth Continental Tire Challenge victory at VIR and the eighth of his career in the series, while Team TMG captures CTSC race IMSA PHOTOTeam TMG drivers Hugh Plumb and Owen Trinkler, center of podium, celebrate after winning the Biscuitville Grand Prix at VIRginia International Raceway on Saturday. Special To Highlands News-SunThe No. 26 G-Drive Racing Oreca-Gibson of Roman Rusinov, Andrea Pizzitola and Jean-Eric Vergne won the 4 Hours of Silverstone, the third win in a row for the Russian ”agged team to extend their championship lead. Vergne took the checkered one lap ahead of the No. 21 Dragonspeed Oreca of Nico Lapierre and the No. 28 IDEC Sport Oreca of Paul Lafargue. United Autosports took their “rst LMP3 win of the 2018 season with the No. 3 Ligier of Tony Wells, Matt Bell and Garret Grist taking the top spot ahead of the No. 7 Ecurie Ecosse / Nielsen Ligier and the No. 17 Ultimate Norma. There was drama in the LMGTE category when the “rst two cars on the road were both given 10 second penalties for exceeding track limits. The No. 66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari of Miguel Molina “nished “rst but was subject to a 10-second penalty. However Molina “nished 10.126 seconds ahead of the No. 88 Proton Competition Porsche of Matteo Cairoli, which when corrected means the No 66 Ferrari won the race by 0.126 seconds. At the start of the 4 Hours of Silverstone the 41 cars headed into the “rst corner. An incident saw the No. 22 United Autosports Ligier of Phil Hanson and the No. 47 Cetilar Villorba Corse Dallara of Giorgio Sernagiotto spin off and rejoin down the “eld. The race was led by the No. 23 Panis Barthez Competition Ligier of Julien Canal, who held off a determined challenge from Rusinov in the G-Drive Oreca. The Russian stuck doggedly to the tail of the Ligier but had to wait for an hour before an opportunity presented itself G-Drive Racing wins at Silverstone JAKOBEBREY.COM PHOTOThe No. 26 G-Drive Racing Oreca takes the checkered ag at Silverstone. By JIM FOOTESpecial to Highlands News-SunLast Tuesday, the Spring Lake Mens League conducted an Individual Net Points competition on the Cougar Trail golf course. Points were assigned based on the Modi“ed Stableford system where bogey is worth one point, pars are worth two points, birdies count as four points and and an eagle is good for six points, after taking into consideration the players handicap for each hole. There were three ”ights. In Flight A, Gary Behrendt scored 40 points for the win that included three birdies, 13 pars and two bogeys. Mike Custer took second place with 39 points „ with four birds, nine pars, and “ve bogeys. Pat Jaskowski scored third place in A with 36 points. B Flight was won „ also with 40 points „ by Jan Hard, who had an eagle, four birdies, eight pars, two bogeys and three open holes. Fred Brune caught second place with 38 points on six birds, three pars, and eight bogeys. Bart Bartholomy, happy as a pig hitting from the senior tees, took third place with 32 net points. In the C Flight, our resident handicap expert „ Leon Van „ got hot, scoring 51 points on one eagle, seven birdies, eight pars, one bogey and one open hole. Larry Carlson came in second place at 40 points and Vern Hoffmans 35 points was good for third place. With both courses greened upŽ by all of the rain lately, we are hoping they will stay in as good a shape when all of our snowbirds come back to Spring Lake Golf Resort this fall.Final Heartland Golf Championship qualierThe “nal Heartland Golf Championship quali“er will take place on Saturday, Sept. 8, at Sun N Lake Golf Club. It will be the last opportunity for golfers to qualify for the Champions event, in which a “ve-night cruise for two will be given away to both the mens and womens champions. The Championship Tournament will be held at River Greens on Saturday, Sept. 15, and is sponsored by Florida Hospital.Spring Lake MGA action By RUTH ANNE LAWSONCorrespondentLAKE PLACID … The Lake Placid Green Dragons have been preparing for the fast-approaching volleyball season. The Dragons have been running drills and practicing plays. The Dragons are glad to have Coach Charlotte Buader back at the helm after she sat out last season. Lake Placid has a talented line up and have a few surprises up their sleeves as they start the 2018 season. My plan since day one when I took over in 2013 is to create a culture unlike what we have had in the past,Ž said Bauder said. Weve had talented players come through the building, but we just couldnt into play. Whether it was lack of hustle or lack of heart. It is really hard with athlete now a days for them to want to hustle, for them to want to do things extra. For me coming back this year I was in a completely different mindset. If they want me here, they are going to work hard. If I am giving 110 percent I expect them to give 110 percent. Over the years the culture has changed and now they have seen how it can be and to where we are now. We have a team that has the will to win and our goal is to make Lake Placid known for volleyball.Ž Bauder said its never easy to replace talented players, but she believes she has players to overcome those losses. Last year we lost a libero but gain an extraordinary defensive player in Yesenia Rameriz,Ž she said. Valeria Vega was also on the team last year but did not get a whole lot of playing time, but she is also an amazing libero, so they were “ghting it out all summer long to see who was going to start. It comes down to I need them both on the court and we are going to “nd a way to make that happen.

Raeley Matthews has already committed to play Division II volleyball in college and Lynd Lewis and Sariah Barajas are the teams middle blockers. We have a good nucleus,Ž Bauder said. We do not want to give away what we are doing, it is going to be a surprise and it will be awesome.Ž Bauder said the Green Dragons have some talented reverse players, which is a nice luxury, as you never know when somebody may be pressed into service. Bauder said sitting out a year wasnt easy, but sometimes there are things in life you have to do. Taking last year off was hard but it is family and it was important,Ž she said. I got the sweetest little boy in my life and he loves to kick around volleyballs. It is great and it is great to be back.Ž Bauder believes the team has a good idea of whats expected from them and what it takes to have a successful program. We want to make it to state and we know that is hard to do,Ž she said. My philosophy is that heart out beats talent every day and we have both. We have been in the gym all summer playing each other and we are ready to play other people and see what we got.Ž Lake Placid will have their “rst game of the season in Hardee against the Wildcats at on Tuesday and the Dragons “rst home game will be against the Mulberry Panthers on Aug. 28.TOURNEYFROM PAGE 9A it was Trinklers second VIR win and 11th in the series. Trinkler won the Street Tuner (ST) class last year with then-co-driver Sarah Cattaneo. The victory also enabled them to extend their lead in the Grand Sport (GS) class standings to 18 points, 226-208, over No. 60 Roush Performance/ KohR Motorsports Ford Mustang GT4 co-drivers Kyle Marcelli and Nate Stacy, who “nished sixth in Saturdays race. VIR is a special place, we won here last year and to repeat is awesome,Ž Trinkler said. We never went to rain tires, we made a great strategy call. The front side of the track was just horrible from Turn 1 all the way to about Turn 7, but the back side was dry. They said just keep it on the track. We were talking about coming down and taking rains, but I said give me another lap and let me see. I was just checking the track out and the line was coming back. I knew if we pitted it would ruin our day. Im just say happy for (team owner) Ted (Giovanis) and everyone at Team TGM. Were just doing our thing.Ž Lazare and co-driver Corey Fergus combined to lead a race-high 21 laps of the 59-lap race to “nish second and take their “rst podium result of the season. It was their second consecutive top-“ve run after they “nished “fth two weeks ago at Road America. Series veterans Davis and Liddell came home third in their “rst race in the No. 71 Camaro after returning to the Continental Tire Challenge this weekend with Rebel Rock Racing. Tom OGorman won his second consecutive Motul Pole Award in TCR class qualifying on Friday, and on Saturday, he and co-driver Kenton Koch converted that pole to the “rst Continental Tire Challenge victories for themselves and the Racing team. It was anything but a ”ag-to-”ag win, however, as OGorman made a trip into the tire barrier during the early race rainstorm. Undeterred, OGorman eventually got the No. 12 Audi RS3 LMS TCR back on course and he and Koch methodically worked their way back to the front as many of their competitors encountered their own issues. It took just seven laps for the No. 12 to get back to the head of the TCR “eld after the early incident, and Koch claimed the lead from Tom Long in the No. 77 Compass Racing Audi RS3 LMS TCR for the “nal time with 15 laps remaining. Koch and OGorman went on to win by a lap over the No. 74 Compass Racing Audi pairing of Kuno Wittmer and Rodrigo Sales. Its a joy to “nally break through that glass ceiling and to get that “rst win,Ž OGorman said. Its a lot of tension building up to the “rst win and once you get it its a sigh of a relief and you can really focus on getting more. Were hoping to “nish off the rest of the season with this momentum. Huge props to my co-driver Kenton Koch to bring home the car. We had some struggles in my stint, but I think we had the least struggles in the “eld. It was a really, really challenging race so its even more rewarding to win this one.Ž The runner-up result for Wittmer and Sales bolstered their TCR points lead to four, 257253, over co-drivers Long and Britt Casey Jr. with two races remaining this season. Long and Casey came home third in the No. 77. Faulkner, Rabe Score First Continental Tire Challenge Win In ST After Penalty No. 21 Bodymotion Racing Porsche Cayman co-drivers Max Faulkner and Jason Rabe took their “rst Continental Tire Challenge race victory when the No. 52 MINI JCW Team entry co-driven by Colin Mullan and Mark Pombo that crossed the “nish line “rst in class was penalized due to a technical infraction. Post-race technical inspection revealed that the No. 52 exceeded maximum boost pressure and was moved to last in class. Faulkner and co-driver Rabe earned their “fth podium result of the season in the ST class with the victory. ST class points leaders Nick Galante and Devin Jones “nished second in the No. 81 BimmerWorld Racing BMW 328i. The No. 81 team was elevated to third post-race when the No. 37 MINI shared by Nate Norenberg and Derek Jones encountered a drive-time infraction and then moved to second following the penalty to the No. 52. Next up for the Continental Tire Challenge is the penultimate round of the 10-race season at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday, Sept. 8.RACEFROM PAGE 9Aat Stowe Corner while overtaking some backmarkers. Rusinov raced to the outside to overtake Canal and take the lead, which the no26 Oreca held until the end of the race. The No. 12 Eurointernational Ligier of Mattia Drudi converted the LMP3 pole into a good start and led into Turn1 from the No. 3 United Autosports Ligier of Garret Grist and the No. 15 RLR MSport Ligier of Job Van Uitert. Behind then the No. 2 United Autosports Ligier of Sean Rayhall spun off at Turn 1 and the American had to “ght his way back up the order. Rayhall fought back when he handed the car over to John Falb when lying in second place. The Ligier failed to start after the pitstop, to the obvious frustration of Falb. The car eventually started but had dropped the American duo right out of the running. The No. 88 Proton Competition Porsche of Gianluca Roda made a good start to lead the LMGTE class from Christian Ried in the No. 77 Proton Porsche, with Liam Grif“n in the No. 66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari in third and the No. 55 Spirit of Race Ferrari of Duncan Cameron in fourth. A good battle developed with the two Ferraris eventually getting the upper hand over their Porsche rivals. At the front Andrea Pizzitola handed over the No. 26 G-Drive Racing Oreca to Vergne and the French driver brought the car home despite a last minute splash and dash for fuel. The No. 3 United Autosports Ligier of Tony Wells held on to take the checkered ”ag to win the LMP3 category, nine seconds ahead of the No. 7 Ecurie Ecosse Ligier of Colin Noble.

PAGE 11 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B1 Highlands Health CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, August 20, 2018Most of you understand that homocysteine is a toxin that, when elevated, increases your risk for heart attack and stroke. This is well-documented, but what is shocking is how dangerous a neurotoxin this compound is! It has been implicated as a contributing factor in neurological and psychiatric disorders such as major depressive disorder, aggression, schizophrenia, bipolar, psychosis, Alzheimers disease and Parkinsons disease. The other shocking surprise is that homocysteine can increase in your blood stream if you have mild kidney disease. Your “ rst clue to this might be unexplained itching, or mild swelling in your feet after a shower or prolonged sitting. Excessive homocysteine can destroy your life and cause you to get diagnosed with multiple conditions that require expensive medications! If youd like the extended article Ive written, Ill send it via email if you sign up for my free newsletter. Now, here are some ways to reduce homocysteine: Minimize Meat Methionine is the primary building block for homocysteine, so one quick way to reduce the formation of homocysteine, is to cut back on red meat which is high in methionine. Just think of it as meat-thionineŽ and reduce intake for a few weeks. B Complex Vitamins These include B6, B12 and B9 (methyl folate). This is whats needed to break down homocysteine. It works for some people, but it triggers other people causing them to over-methylate. Its not my favorite approach because its very hard to “ nd the perfect ratios of each B vitamin (which is different for everyone). I prefer throwing a wet blanketŽ on top of the “ re so continue reading. Bi“ dobacterium Intestinal ” ora that has healthy amounts of Bi“ dobacterium longum can help reduce homocysteine. It works because the probiotic goes on to produce folate in the gut, and folate is needed to break down the homocysteine. Prunes In last years issue of Food and Chemical Toxicology, researchers noted that homocysteine responded to antioxidant compounds found in prune extract. Granted, this was not a human study, but still the prune extract was given by injection and it signi“ cantly decreased homocysteine levels. We can joke about it all day long, but you need to know that the prunes have a bene“ cial effect on homocysteine. Pomegranate Powder Brand new research in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy was published in June 2018 and showed how punicalaginŽ from pomegranates can protect neuronal DNA in the brain of rodents with high homocysteine. Drinking pomegranate juice might help humans, its certainly not going to hurt. Even better, you can buy a concentrated pomegranate powder in a bag, and just mix some in water each day. Catalase High homocysteine is associated with a reduction in catalase enzyme activity all over the body. So if your homocysteine is high, your peroxide is too. Catalase is the liver enzyme humans make and its required to break down peroxide and turn it into water and oxygen. There are supplements of Catalase available online.

Natural Cycles, a mobile fertility app, this month became the “ rst ever digital contraceptive device to win FDA marketing approval. Women take their temperatures and track their menstrual cycle on the app, which uses an algorithm to determine when theyre fertile and should abstain from unprotected sex or use protection. In effect, its a form of the rhythm or calendar method. The Swedish startup says its effective and lets women avoid side effects common with other methods like birth control pills. But reports of unwanted pregnancies and investigations by authorities in two countries in Europe, where it received EU certi“ cation in 2017, have raised questions about marketing what is essentially a health monitor as a contraceptive. Natural Cycles boasts more than 900,000 users, and such fast growth underscores risks for regulators and concerns among health professionals as they grapple with the rapidly emerging market for mobile and digital health applications. Apps are incredibly popular and theres nothing inherently wrong about using tech to support our health,Ž said Bekki Burbidge, deputy chief executive of the Family Planning Association, a British sexual health organization. But theyre also an area that is fairly unregulated and it can be hard to sort the good, evidenceand research-based apps from the bad.Ž The app is similar to hundreds of other period trackers already available, most of which are aimed at helping women conceive. But FDA approval means it can be marketed as a mobile contraceptive, giving it an edge in the mobile medical apps market, which is forecast to grow to $11.2 billion by 2025, up from at $1.4 billion in 2016, according to BIS Research. The makers of Natural Cycles acknowledge its not 100 percent effective and some women might still get pregnant even if used perfectly. The Food and Drug Administration regulates apps and gadgets that collect or track medical information as medical devices, though it doesnt scrutinize many more that merely perform simple tasks like tracking calories. Marketing of contraceptive apps needs to be extremely careful to ensure that women understand exactly what theyre signing up for and the limitations, the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said in a statement. The FDA gave its approval based on data from Natural Cycles involving 15,570 women who used the app for an average of eight months. The FDA said that if the app is used correctly all the time, 1.8 percent of women would get pregnant over one year. The typical useŽ failure rate, which factors in human error, was 6.5 percent. The birth control pills Natural Cycles makes debut AP PHOTOA women demonstrates using the Natural Cycles smartphone app, in London, Friday, Aug. 17. The mobile fertility app, has become the rst ever digital contraceptive device to win FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) marketing approval, enabling women to trac k their menstrual cycle and uses an algorithm to determine when theyre fertile, and need to use birth control protection. We care deeply each and every time one of our users becomes pregnant. One of the ongoing challenges with all forms of contraception is that there is always a statistical chance of unintended pregnancy, since no method is 100 percent effective.ŽNatural Cycles Statement CYCLES | 9BBy MIKE STOBBEAP Medical WriterNEW YORK (AP) „ If you quit smoking and gain weight, it may seem like youre trading one set of health problems for another. But a new U.S. study “ nds youre still better off in the long run. Compared with smokers, even the quitters who gained the most weight had at least a 50 percent lower risk of dying prematurely from heart disease and other causes, the Harvard-led study found. The study is impressive in its size and scope and should put to rest any myth that there are prohibitive weight-related health consequences to quitting cigarettes, said Dr. William Dietz, a public health expert at George Washington University. The paper makes pretty clear that your health improves, even if you gain weight,Ž said Dietz, who was not involved in the research. I dont think we knew that with the assurance that this paper provides.Ž The New England Journal of Medicine published the study Wednesday. The journal also published a Swedish study that found quitting smoking seems to be the best thing diabetics can do to cut their risk of dying prematurely. The nicotine in cigarettes can suppress appetite and boost metabolism. Many smokers who quit and dont step up their exercise “ nd they eat more and gain weight „ typically less than 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms), but in some cases three times that much. A lot of weight gain is a cause of the most common form of diabetes, a disease in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal. Diabetes can lead to problems including blindness, nerve damage, heart and kidney disease and poor blood ” ow to the legs and feet. In the U.S. study, researchers tracked more than 170,000 men and women over roughly 20 years, looking at what they said in health questionnaires given every two years. The people enrolled in the studies were all health professionals, and did not mirror current smokers in the general population, who are disproportionately low-income, less-educated and more likely to smoke heavily. The researchers checked which study participants quit smoking and followed whether they gained weight and developed diabetes, heart disease or other conditions. Quitters saw their risk of diabetes increase by 22 percent in the six years after they kicked the habit. Study: Smokers better off quitting, even with weight gain AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 22, 2012 le photo, a smoker extinguishes a cigarette in an ash tray in Sacramento, Calif. If you quit smoking and gain weight, it may seem like youre trading one set of health problems for another. But a new U.S. study released on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018 nds youre still better o in the long run.SMOKERS | 9B


B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 20, 2018 Often, when a patient gets a hearing evaluation and they are confronted with the option of correcting it with hearing aids I am asked, Are there any surgical options?Ž Any other treatment options?Ž Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common form of hearing loss in adults over the age of 65. Sensorineural hearing loss is also one of the most common sensory disorders. This is the type of loss that newborn babies may suffer. So, what is going on out there in the medical research community to attack hearing loss? Research on other parts of the body and or ailments are ongoing. Cancer research. Corrective eye procedures. Hip and knee replacements. Doctors can recirculate our blood. Dialysis keeps us going. But what about the ears and our hearing? On Friday, a company announced that they have $50 million funded for research to develop genetic therapy to treat, preserve and restore normal hearing. The company is called AKOUOS. They are adeno associated viral vector (AAV) based gene therapies for sensorineural hearing loss that results from dysfunction or damage to the nerve “ bers and or cell in the inner ear.Ž ( American Academy of Audiology, Digital Journal Aug. 10, 2018). According to founder Manny Simons, the company is now in a realistic and unique position to set forth and develop the gene therapies and initiate human studies. They are proceeding with research that would provide a one-time administration. Sounds crazy, but why not? Stem cell injections work on so many other parts of our bodies. AKOUOS has expanded and added new investors, researchers, and board members. Along with the previously mentioned there are some noteworthy names on this developments teams list: Dr. Michael McKenna as chief medical of“ cer and Jennifer Wellman as senior vice president (regulatory). Dr. McKenna is a world-renowned neurologist and co-founder of the company. His background is inner ear translational drug delivery approaches. Miss Wellman has 20 years experience in many areas of gene therapy. She co-founded Spark Therapeutics and guided the FDA approval of the very “ rst In Vivo gene therapy approved in our country. Others are: Jean Bennett Ph.D., M.D. „ F.M. Kirby professor of ophthalmology at University of Pennsylvania. William Sewell, founder, is a professor of otolaryngology at both Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Luk Vandenberghe, director of Grousbeck Gene Therapy Center, Massachusetts Eye and Ear; assistant professor of ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. Aaron Tward M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor in residence of Otolaryngologyhead and neck surgery. University of California at San Francisco. Richard Smith M.D., (founder) founding director of the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics and Molecular Otolaryngology and Renal Research Laboratories. He is also a professor of otolaryngology, pediatrics, and molecular physiology and biophysics at the University of Iowa. According to Dr. McKenna, There are more than 150 forms of genetically de“ ned forms of hearing loss and more are being discovered.Ž Their companys quest is to develop gene therapy that can preserve and or restore hearing loss in one session. With the funding of $50 million accessible to them and a team of top researchers they are pushing forward. Human studies will be on the horizon. While research takes time, it is de“ nitely in the works. If you would like more information the website is Roseann B. Kiefer, B.A., BC-HIS, is owner of Lampe and Kiefer Hearing Aid Center.

HEARING MATTERSRoseann Kiefer By YOGA FOR LIFEBy Nancy DaleYoga is adaptive to each individual. We may be in a Yoga class where an instructor demonstrates how to perform each of the postures. We practice doing the postures at least twice for each pose and then hold the pose allowing for new muscle memory to become integrated mentally/physically. The real practice begins when we repeat the postures by our self, close the eyes, visualize internally how we learned to perform it then repeat it. We call this practice intuitiveŽ Yoga. We can begin our individual practice by recalling how we were taught to move into each pose. It helps to close the eyes and internally visualize our body performing the posture. We recall from practicing the pose in class, looking at pictures or videos and replicate what we visualize as the correct form. In Yoga, correct form is important so we gain the most bene“ t from our practice and do not incur injuries from repeating a posture incorrectly. Yoga is all about practice. The more we replicate the correct posture, muscle memory will be able to help us internalize the form in our individual practice. Since we can apply Yoga postures in our everyday life, standing, walking, jumping, moving we can visualize our form. This is intuitive learning. I have seen Yoga students initiate postures they have corrected when sitting at the computer, using the cell phone so the neck is not holding it but the hand avoiding a crickŽ in the neck. When seating at a desk, I see Yoga students not leaning back conforming the body to the chair but intentionally sitting with a lengthened straight back. Enjoy the visualizations you create that the body sends forth to the mind and vice versa. This is the true nature of a Yoga practice. Enjoy!What is intuitive Yoga?

Some marijuana smokers turned to it because it is relatively cheap and not detected in routine drug testing. Dozens of people in New Haven, Connecticut, went to the hospital this week after overdosing on a batch of synthetic pot. A look at the issue: WHAT IS IT? While states have moved to legalize traditional marijuana, synthetic marijuana has become a public health threat. Synthetic pot is a mind-altering drug made by taking plant material and spraying it with chemicals that can mimic the high from marijuana. It is sold under names like K2, AK47, Spice, Kush, Kronic, and Scooby Snax. The chemicals also can also be mixed into a liquid and vaped, and even mixed into tea or food. The substances can produce some similar effects to traditional marijuana including relaxation, elevated mood and altered perception. WHATS IN IT? Authorities have detected scores of chemicals in synthetic marijuana, and say chemical composition can vary not only from product to product but from batch to batch. Some ingredients are banned by federal or state law. Drug dealers peddle synthetic marijuana, and police say people have been able to buy it online or in convenience stores and gas stations. Synthetic pot products are not tested for safety and people who use them dont know exactly what chemicals theyre putting into their bodies. Earlier this year, more than 160 people in Illinois were sickened and at least four died after using synthetic marijuana tainted with rat poison.Synthetic pot seen as a public health danger Serious Legal Experience for Serious Injuries 2154 LAKEVIEW DRIVE € SEBRING, FL 33870 (863) 471-0003 LILLYBROWNLAW.COM FREE CONSULTATION € AVAILABLE 24/7 Steve Brownadno=3595120 adno=3603219 adno=3595119

PAGE 15 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B5Metro Creative ConnectionsSports are a great tool to teach young people various lessons. Sports can instill a sense of teamwork and responsibility in youngsters while promoting a physically active lifestyle that can bene“t kids into adulthood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that roughly 30 million children participate in youth sports in the United States each year. Unfortunately, many of those young athletes suffer injuries while participating in sports. Injuries might be seen as an almost inevitable byproduct of participating in sports, but the CDC notes that more than half of all sports injuries in children are preventable. Parents and children can work together to prevent injuries. Speak with your young athlete about pain. Johns Hopkins Medicine recommends parents discuss pain with their young athletes, encouraging them to speak up and seek help if they feel pain or if any part of their bodies does not feel right after playing sports. Emphasize safety during practice. Its easy to overlook sports practices when considering sports-related injuries, but Safe Kids USA notes that 62 percent of organized sports-related injuries occur during practice. In spite of that, Safe Kids reports that one-third of parents do not have their children take the same safety precautions during practice that they would during a game. Parents and coaches can emphasize to children that sports safety should be a priority during both practice and games. Get a sports physical. Preseason physicals are typically required for scholastic athletes, but that might not be so for recreational athletes. Even if leagues dont require sports physicals, Johns Hopkins advises parents to schedule such exams anyway. Such examinations can determine if kids are “t to play and may uncover injuries or conditions that may make kids vulnerable to injury. Encourage adequate rest. Johns Hopkins notes that the most common injuries among young athletes are overuse injuries that involve soft tissue. These injuries affect bone, muscle, ligaments, and/or tendons. Overuse injuries can lead to stress fractures characterized by a lack of swelling and feelings of pain and tenderness during movement. Encourage rest between practices, games and events, and make sure to schedule an offseason for young athletes so their bodies have time to recuperate before the next season. Young athletes injuries are often preventable, especially when parents and children work together and communicate about any aches or pains kids might be feeling.How to prevent sports injuries in young athletes MEDICAL2030 NOW HIRING F/T-Billing SpecialistFor Busy Medical Practice.

B6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 20, 2018 Metro Creative ConnectionsMany people take their vision for granted until a problem arises that affects their ability to see. While certain conditions may occur suddenly, others develop more gradually and may not even be noticeable until the problem has progressed signi“cantly. Cataracts is a common vision problem that is often associated with aging. The National Eye Institute says that, by age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Prevent Blindness America says there are more cases of cataracts worldwide than there are of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy combined. The American Optometric Association de“nes a cataract as a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Depending on its size, cataracts can interfere with normal vision. They typically occur in people over the age of 55. A cataract can be present in one or both eyes. The lens is responsible for helping to focus light or an image on the retina. In a healthy lens, ”uid and protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear, offers NEI. However, as one ages, the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. Over time, this clouding may grow. Researchers also suspect there are other causes to cataracts, such as smoking or diabetes. In addition, wear and tear on the lens can develop into cataract clouding. Signi“cant alcohol consumption, UV radiation, eye surgery, and high myopia also may contribute to cataract formation. All About Vision says the types of cataracts include: Subcapsular cataract, which occurs at the back of the lens; Nuclear cataract, which forms deep in the central zone of the lens; and Cortical cataract, which starts as white opacities in the periphery of the lens and then grows inward. The Mayo Clinic advises that there are no known methods to prevent cataracts or slow their progression. But choosing a healthy diet full of antioxidants, quitting bad habits like smoking, managing diabetes, and having regular eye examinations can help. Its also a good idea to wear sunglasses that block against UVA and UVB light when outdoors. Cataracts can cause blurring of vision and even make it dif“cult to see in bright conditions. Colors may seem faded, night vision may be adversely affected and glare may be problematic. The AOA says that early cataracts typically are not treated and changes to prescriptions may provide temporary visual improvement. If a cataract progresses to the point that it affects ones ability to perform everyday tasks, surgery in which an arti“cial lens replaces the natural lens may be necessary.

PAGE 17 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B7By BRADLEY J. FIKESThe San Diego Union-Tribune (TNS)SAN DIEGO „ Women whose mothers lived to 90 years have a 25 percent greater chance to also live that long, compared with those whose mothers didnt, according to a new study led by University of California, San Diego researchers. Moreover, the women achieved this extreme longevity while staying healthy. They had no major chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, hip fracture or physical limitations. When both parents survived to 90 years, the advantage jumped to 38 percent, said the study, published Wednesday in the journal Age and Ageing. If only the father lived to be 90, there was no increase in healthy longevity for the daughter. These results are probably a combination of genetics, environment and behavior, said UCSDs Aladdin Shadyab, who led the study. It examined the health records of a racially and ethnically diverse population of more than 20,000 women. The study used information from the Womens Health Initiative, a large, longterm study on major risk factors for chronic diseases. It enrolled more than 160,000 post-menopausal American women when it was launched in 1993. Since only women are tracked in the initiative, the study did not examine men or parental life span effects on sons. The initiative has yielded a wealth of information about womens health, including the effects of hormone therapy, diet and supplementation with calcium and vitamin D. Previous research jibes with the studys findings, including health in the greatly long-lived, the study said. In the New England Centenarian Study, offspring of centenarians had 78 percent, 83 percent and 86 percent lower risk of developing myocardial infarction, stroke and diabetes, respectively, than a similarly aged referent cohort,Ž the study said. A lot of factors go into total life expectancy. This effect of long-lived parents adds an additional calculation.

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 20, 2018 By BARBARA QUINNThe Monterey County Herald (TNS)Most of the questions I get from you, dear readers, are easy, such as Skips inquiry (in the spirit of my corny joke column), How do you know when blue cheese has gone bad?Ž Baa ha ha. Other letters spur me on to do more research on a topic. A recent reader, for example, scolded me for taking peanuts on a recent ”ight to a family wedding. (We were in fact, served peanuts on this particular ”ight.) What about other children and adults ƒ who have severe peanut allergy?Ž she wrote. Peanuts have been banned for quite some time now on all major airlines.Ž Fact is, our peanut ”ight airline, Southwest, just recently announced that, beginning August 1, they will no longer serve peanuts onboard their planes. Delta airlines states on their website that they will not serve peanuts on a particular ”ight if a passenger noti“es them of an allergy. Other carriers such as American and United dont serve packaged peanuts on their ”ights. These airlines warn, however, that other foods they serve may contain nuts or other foods to which some passengers may be allergic. Severe allergic reactions are no joke, to be sure. Because of potential life threatening reactions, people with food allergies must be constantly vigilant about the foods they eat and the environments they enter, say experts at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Just last year, in an effort to prevent the growing prevalence of peanut allergies in particular, a panel of experts sponsored by the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), recommended some guidelines that didnt appear at “rst to make sense. Instead of avoiding peanuts, they recommend introducing them „ under a doctors supervision „ as early as 4 to 6 months of age into the diets of infants at high risk for developing peanut allergy (those with severe eczema and/or egg allergy). Children with mild or moderate eczema (rough and in”amed patches of skin) should have peanut-containing foods introduced into their diets around 6 months of age. These new guidelines also recommend children at low risk for food allergies should have peanuts freely introduced into their diets when other solid foods are introduced, usually around 4 to 6 months of age. Sounds crazy but a landmark clinical trial on 600 infants found that regular peanut consumption begun in infancy and continued until 5 years of age reduced the development of peanut allergy by 81 percent in children at high risk for peanut allergy. Find information about this study at Learning Early About Peanut Allergy http:// Thanks for your letters that make me smile and those that keep me on my toes, dear readers. And always remember „ if you have severe allergies „ to notify your airline when you book your ”ight. „„ (Barbara Quinn is a registered dietitian and certi“ed diabetes educator af“liated with Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

PAGE 19 August 20, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | B9failure rate is 9 percent, while for condoms its 18 percent and 24 percent for fertility-awareness methods but those “gures are backed up by much more long-term data. The companys founders, Elina Berglund and Raoul Scherwitzl, are a married couple who are both former physicists. Berglund was part of a team of scientists looking for the Higgs boson particle at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, in Switzerland. They pivoted from science to startups when they wrote the algorithm to help them have a baby and then developed an app to tap broader demand. The app is free to download but the company charges $10 a month to use it. Its claims were called into question in January, after Swedish regulators started investigating reports that 37 women who used it became pregnant anyway. The Swedish Medical Product Agency said its looking into whether the number of unwanted pregnancies falls within the apps claimed effectiveness rate, and the investigation is expected to wrap up in September. Natural Cycles said that as a condition of EU certi“cation, it must continue monitoring user data, which it says show that the typical-use effectiveness rate remains at 93 percent. We care deeply each and every time one of our users becomes pregnant,Ž the company said in a statement. One of the ongoing challenges with all forms of contraception is that there is always a statistical chance of unintended pregnancy, since no method is 100 percent effective.Ž FDA spokeswoman Deborah Kotz said the agency was aware of the Swedish reports but felt they were consistent with its knowledge of risks associated with the app. An increase in the absolute numbers of unintended pregnancies is expected with a growing number of users,Ž she said. Britains Advertising Standards Authority, meanwhile, says its looking into whether paid-for Facebook posts that claim Natural Cycles is a highly accurate contraceptive appŽ and clinically tested alternative to birth control methodsŽ are misleading. We have launched a formal investigation and will publish our “ndings in due course,Ž the authority said. Burbidge said more outside research into fertility apps is needed because at the moment theres not enough independent evidenceŽ on their reliability. She added that women using such apps need to be motivated and aware of factors that can make it less effective, such as travel, alcohol, stress or not getting enough sleep, which can all affect temperature readings. Theres so much you can do that makes it not perfect,Ž she said.CYCLESFROM PAGE 1B An editorial in the journal characterized it as a mild elevationŽ in the diabetes risk. Studies previously showed that people who quit have an elevated risk of developing diabetes, said Dr. Qi Sun, one the studys authors. He is a researcher at the Harvard-af“liated Brigham and Womens Hospital. But that risk doesnt endure, and it never leads to a higher premature death rate than what smokers face, he said. Regardless of the amount of weight gain, quitters always have a lower risk of dyingŽ prematurely, Sun said.SMOKERSFROM PAGE 1Bcomparison, 34 percent of all American women 65 years old will live to 90, according to the Social Security Administration. The increase in life expectancy is calculated compared to this base. (Just 22 percent of men of that age will reach 90). In addition, total life expectancy has grown over the decades. In 1965, just 25 percent of 65-year-old American women lived to 90, and only 10 percent of the men. In addition to outside factors such as exercise and diet, researchers in recent years have found some genetic traits that appear more commonly in those who achieve very long lifespans. There are specific genes that predict your ability to live longer, which these women likely inherited from their parents,Ž Shadyab said. Researchers dont know, however, why the mothers longevity seems to play a more important role in a daughters lifespan than the fathers. Further, the women whose parents lived longer had higher socioeconomic status, meaning that they were more educated with higher income,Ž he said. And growing up in a high socioeconomic environment predicts your chances of living longer and aging well.Ž Those in high-income households tend to have access to better health care and education on healthy habits and presumably those influences play a role. Its possible that the parents who lived to 90 also practiced good health habits that they passed along to their daughters. More studies are needed to determine how genetic factors interact with behavioral factors like physical activity and socioeconomic status to influence our future aging outcomes,Ž Shadyab said. Other studies have looked at health in aging. In San Diego, the ongoing WellderlyŽ study tracks men and women who have reached their 80s and beyond, to look for genetic and lifestyle factors that may influence their longevity. If women want to know how the results apply to them, their present age makes a difference. Older people have a better chance of great longevity than younger people. Thats because some younger people will die prematurely, whether by illness or injury, and never reach old age. By definition, the elderly have already survived these dangers. For young women, this means that environmental and behavioral patterns are much more important to attaining extreme longevity than for those who are already older.AGEFROM PAGE 7B adno=3592755adno=3599895 Hours: 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. € Monday-Friday 8TH YEAR IN BUSINESS IN SEBRINGPH# 863-385-5689 € FAX RX 863-582-9355 3200 US Hwy 27 S., Suite 103 € side entranceAAA Direct Discount DONT LET THE DONUT HOLE TAKE A BITE OUT OF YOU!SYMBICORT....... 160 MCG/4.5 MCG B.......360 DOSES .......... $167.00 DALIRESP ......................500 MCG B .........90 TABS .............. $218.00 PROVENTOLIN FHA .......100 MCG G .........800 DOSES ......... $153.00 SPIRIVA .........................18 MCG G ...........90 CAPS .............. $156.00 ANORO ELLIPTA.....55 MCG/22 MCG B ......90 DOSES ............. $325.00 XARELTO ........................20 MG B .............84 TABS .............. $259.00 ELIQUIS ..........................2.5/5 MG B .........180 TABS ............ $284.00 RANEXA ER ....................500 MG G ..........200 TABS .......... $182.00 PREMARIN .....................0.625 MG B ........84 TABS ............ $117.66PREMARIN ....................0.3 MG B .............84 TABS ............ $121.00MULTAQ.........................400 MG B............ 180 TABS............$553.00 No Control over availability and prices subject to change VIAGRA100mg BRAND$1000a pill 24/36VIAGRAGENERIC 100mg 40 tabs $12900CIALIS20mg BRAND$1900CIALISGENERIC 20mg 20 tabs $11000 WE OFFER THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT LOW BACK PAINDr. Danzeys patented tables are now used all over the world!

B10 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | August 20, 2018 Metro Creative ConnectionsResponsible dog owners ensure their four-legged friends are in good physical health. This involves taking dogs to the veterinarian at regular intervals, providing healthy food options and being aware of the more common (and largely preventable) conditions that can affect dogs. Ear infections: Dogs that scratch at their ears, continually shake their heads or have an odor in the ear might have ear infections. In such instances, vets will clean, drain and medicate the ear canals. Heartworm: Heartworm is a parasitic worm that lives in the heart and pulmonary arteries. The worms travel throughout the bloodstream and can harm other vital organs. Medication can prevent heartworm infection, which oftentimes is transmitted through mosquito bites. Parvovirus: Many dogs come in contact with parvo by touching or ingesting the feces of an infected dog in close quarters. Symptoms include vomiting, weight loss and lethargy. Parvo is highly preventable with a vaccine. Rabies: This viral disease affects the brain and spinal cord of all mammals. Once symptoms appear, rabies is close to 100 percent fatal, warns the ASPCA. Vaccination is essential to prevention, and most areas require rabies vaccines by law. Fleas: Fleas are parasitic blood-suckers that reside on the coats of pets. Scratching, hot spots, hair loss, and tapeworms (which are carried by ”eas) can be symptomatic of ”ea infestation. Some people may notice actual ”eas on their dogs, while others may identify the ”ea dirt against a dogs skin. Flea prevention medicines and medicated shampoos can help keep ”eas at bay. Diabetes: While not entirely preventable, as diabetes can be caused by either a lack of the hormone insulin or the bodys inadequate response to insulin, pet owners can manage the disease with the right foods and insulin injections.Common conditions that can affect dogs METRO CREATIVE CONNECTIONS Metro Creative ConnectionsEvery day a family welcomes a pet into their home. According to Greger Larson, director of the University of Oxfords palaeogenomic and bi-archaeology research network, dogs, without a doubt, were the “rst domestic animal. While researchers know they were tamed and used for work, little is known about when dogs moved from primarily providing utility to being pets. Pet industry statistics and data from the ASPCA indicate there are now roughly 78 million dogs living as pets in households across the United States. The Canadian Pet Outlook Market says Canada is home to roughly six million pet dogs. While researchers continue on their quest to determine just how and when canines transitioned from being beasts of burdens to best friends, dog lovers can do their share to keep their pets safe and happy. Begin with training. One of the best things a pet owner can do for the well-being of a his or her dog is to ensure that it receives proper training from a young age. According to VetWest Animal Hospital experts, statistics show that owners who have pets that behave get more satisfaction and have stronger bonds with their pets. A dog that responds to basic commands can stay out of danger, and knowing what he is supposed to do can help the dog feel less stressed. Socialize the pet. Learning how to respond to other dogs and people is an important aspect of canine life. If the pet is to get along with other dogs, it needs to have high exposure to other animals every day and in various scenarios. Socialization can begin as soon as a puppy is immunized and able to venture out with others. Spay or neuter the dog. Various animal health experts attest to the bene“ts of having dogs spayed and neutered. These can include limiting aggression, reducing the need to roam and helping to prevent “ghts with other animals. Also, spaying and neutering helps keep animal numbers under control. Keep licensing up to date. Licensing will keep dogs registered in the area and help have current contact information available. Pet owners often license and microchip their pets to ensure safety all around. Exercise the pet. Dogs need daily exercise to maintain healthy body weights and keep them from “ts of boredom. A dog that is not properly exercised may engage in destructive behavior around the house to unleash its pent-up energy. Love and affection are also needed for healthy pets, but pampering should not come at the expense of training and obedience.How to keep dogs safe and content Rent-a-Relative, Inc.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHERCrazy Rich Asians shines bright at the box officeSee page 8 Monday, August 20, 2018 By JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSBRIDGEWATER, N.J. „ President Donald Trump insisted Sunday that his White House counsel isnt a RATŽ like the Watergate-era White House attorney who turned on Richard Nixon, and he blasted the ongoing Russia investigation as McCarthyism.Ž Trump, in a series of angry tweets, denounced a New York Times story that his White House counsel, Don McGahn, has been cooperating extensively with the special counsel team investigating Russian election meddling and potential collusion with Trumps Republican campaign. The failing @nytimes wrote a Fake piece today implying that because White House Councel Don McGahn was giving hours of testimony to the Special Councel, he must be a John Dean type RAT,Ž Trump wrote, misspelling the word counsel,Ž as he often does. But I allowed him and all others to testify „ I didnt have to. I have nothing to hide......Ž The New York Times said it stands by its story. Dean, a frequent critic of the president, was the White House counsel for Nixon during the Watergate scandal. He ultimately cooperated with prosecutors and helped bring down the Nixon presidency in 1974, though he served a prison term for obstruction of justice. Dean tweeted Saturday night in response to the Times story: Trump, a total incompetent, is bungling and botching his handling of Russiagate. Fate is never kind to bunglers and/or botchers! Unlike Nixon, however, Trump wont leave willingly or graciously.Ž He added Sunday in response to Trumps tweets that he doubts the president has ANY IDEA what McGahn has told Mueller. Also, Nixon knew I was meeting with prosecutors, b/c I told him. However, he didnt think I would tell them the truth!Ž Trumps original legal team had encouraged McGahn and other White House of“ cials to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, and McGahn spent hours in interviews. Trumps personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said in an appearance on NBCs Meet the PressŽ that Trump didnt raise executive privilege or attorney-client privilege during those interviews because his team believed „ he says now, wrongly „ that fully participating would be the Trump says his WH counsel not a RAT like Nixons AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 16 “ le photo, White House counsel Donald McGahn, left, listens as President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington. By PAT EATON-ROBBASSOCIATED PRESSWALLINGFORD, Conn. „ Victoria Kozar, like many students, met one of her best friends while in college. The now 23-year-old, who attended Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, says she and Beth lived in the same building and spent hours talking about everything from boyfriends to baking. Her other friends are usually surprised when they “ nd out that Beth Eichelman is 91 years old. I dont refer to her as like, my elderly friend Beth,Ž she said. Shes not like another grandma. Shes just one of the girls.Ž Kozar, of New Milford, was among the “ rst students to participate in the MasonicareQuinnipiac University Students In Residence Program, which had her live during her senior year in 2016-17, at Masonicare at Ashlar Village, a retirement community in Wallingford. Intergenerational learning isnt new. There are dozens of programs across the nation that have opened assisted living facilities on campus or given senior citizens access to college classrooms. But only a few, such as Quinnipiac, actually have the generations live together. The idea of the program is to tear down generational stereotypes, combat ageism and introduce students to possibility of careers working with the elderly. On Friday, Ashlar Program combats ageism by having students live with seniorsAs college students move into their dorms, one student moves into a retirement community Victoria Kozar, right, chats with her friend, Beth Eichelman, 91, inside Masonicare at Ashlar Village, a retirement community in Wallingford, Conn.

By BEN BRODYBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON „ While lamenting abusive conduct on Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey said any move to block content based on political or social views would stoke already rising concern about the power of social media companies. We cant just keep changing randomly based on our viewpoints,Ž Dorsey said in an interview on CNN. That just adds to the fear of companies like ours making these judgments.Ž Dorseys comments aired a day after President Donald Trump, a devoted Twitter user, wrote on the site that Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices.Ž Last week, Twitter put temporary limits on the account of right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for violating the companys policies against abusive behavior. More and more people have fear of companies like ours and the perceived power that companies like ours have over how they live and even think every single day,Ž Dorsey said in the interview. He said he understands that feeling, but doesnt see himself as having that power. Trump, in Twitter post, said social media companies are unfair in how they apply their rules. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others,Ž Trump wrote.

The governors of“ce and all three Cabinet seats are on the ballot; Republican Gov. Rick Scott is challenging three-term 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:THE PARROTHEAD VOTESinger Jimmy Buffett is endorsing former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham for governor. That shouldnt be too surprising. The iconic Florida entertainer and businessman has had some history with the Graham family. He performed a concert for her during her 2014 run for Congress, and in 1985 he joined Grahams father, then-Gov. Bob Graham, at the Capitol Press Corps annual skits, where they sang two songs. Buffett will also perform a concert in South Florida next week, just ahead of the Aug. 28 primary.SUE ME? ILL SUE YOU!The Democratic candidates for attorney general are getting in some warm ups in case they get elected „ by suing each other. State Rep. Sean Shaw “led a lawsuit last month in an effort to get primary opponent Ryan Torrens kicked off the ballot, claiming Torrens relied on an illegal contribution in order to have enough money to pay the $7,738 qualifying fee. The lawsuit asserts that Torrens improperly characterized a $4,000 check as a loan in order to bypass the $3,000 limit for statewide candidates. Now this week Torrens countersued Shaw for libel. By erroneously raising these false claims, my opponent falsely and frivolously challenged my integrity, as a professional and as someone aspiring to public of“ce,Ž Torrens said in a press release announcing the suit.GONNA FLY NOW?During a meeting with Democratic activists this week, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson was questioned about the heavy barrage of television ads that Gov. Rick Scott and his allies have already run this election year. Nelson, citing the Rocky “lm franchise which began with the Oscar-winning “lm in 1976, acknowledged that he has been outspent dramatically so far. I almost feel like Rocky Balboa,Ž said Nelson. Because remember he gets in the ring and he has to take punch after punch after punch.Ž Nelson pointed out that Scott has more money than he does because he is a multimillionaire. But he countered that even with the ads it was still a tight race.Ž He added that he was recently “lming his own television ads that would soon “nd their way to television screens. I of course am saving my nickels and dimes until I see the whites of their eyes,Ž Nelson said. TAKING IT TO THE COURTSThe line of lawsuits challenging constitutional amendments keeps growing. This past week former Florida Supreme Court Justice Harry Lee Anstead asked the states highest court to remove six amendments placed on the November ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission. The lawsuit “led directly with the Supreme Court contends that the commission improperly combined separate items into one amendment in an attempt to get voters to support them. The lawsuit also asserts that three amendments are misleading as well. Ansteads lawsuit comes amid a ”urry of other lawsuits challenging several amendments approved by the commission. The commission meets every 20 years and has the power to place amendments directly before voters. They must be approved by 60 percent of voters in order to pass. On Friday, lawyers squared off in a Leon County courtroom over an education amendment that if approved would make it easier for charter schools to be approved without approval from local school boards. Ron Meyer, an attorney representing the League of Women Voters, argued the measure is confusing and does not clearly tell voters how it would work. Blaine Winship, who represented state election of“cials, contended it was an easily understood constitutional “xŽ that came in the wake of past lawsuits over who has the power to approve new charter schools. Circuit Judge John Cooper said a ruling in the lawsuit over Amendment 8 could come by Monday.The week in Florida politicsParrotheads and lawsuits HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEDonation jar for slain girls family stolen; woman arrestedJACKSONVILLE (AP) „ Authorities say they have arrested a woman caught on video surveillance camera stealing a jar full of donations intended to help the family of a 7-year-old Florida girl slain in gun cross“re. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Of“ce said the jar containing about $600 was taken from a restaurant near the site where Heidy Rivas Villanueva was killed on Aug. 11. Deputies announced the womans arrest Saturday afternoon. She was not immediately identi“ed. The video shows the woman looking around several times, grabbing the donation jar and stuf“ng it inside a shopping bag before rushing out the door. The donations were intended to help with funeral expenses for the little girl. The Florida TimesUnion reports that nearly $16,000 has been contributed to a GoFundMe page set up for Heidys family. Three people have been arrested on murder and other charges stemming from the killing.Rabies alert issued after infected bat foundBOCA RATON (AP) „ A rabies alert has been issued in a Florida city after a bat tested positive for the dangerous disease. The alert was issued by the state health department for part of Boca Raton. Tests results last week con“rmed the bat was rabid. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Saturday that this is the “fth con“rmed rabid animal this year in Palm Beach County. Authorities say residents in some Boca Raton neighborhoods should avoid contact with any wild animals, particularly raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and can be fatal to warm-blooded animals and people. Diseased animals can also infect dogs, cats and other pets.Police: Man, 88, burns raccoon over eating mangoesPALM BAY (AP) „ An 88-year-old Florida man was arrested after police said he burned a trapped raccoon alive because the animal had eaten his mangoes. Ezra James told WKMG-TV in a story Saturday that he threw gasoline on the raccoon and lit a match. In addition to the mangoes, James says he was afraid the raccoon might give him rabies. James lives in the coastal town of Palm Bay, located about 75 miles southeast of Orlando. A neighbor called 911 as the raccoon burned alive in a metal trap. James says police of“cers shot the raccoon to ease its suffering. Authorities say nuisance animals can be trapped and either released or humanely euthanized. James says he was released from jail after posting $2,000 bail on a charge of animal cruelty resulting in death.Man charged with destroying burrowing owl nestsCAPRE CORAL (AP) „ A Florida man has been charged with destroying the nests of six burrowing owls. The birds are protected by the state. Wildlife of“cials say 52-year-old Jerlis Villalba and his crew were doing landscaping work when he instructed the crew to clear land near the burrows. According to a probable cause af“davit, Villalba admitted that he knew the burrowing owls and their burrows were protected and decided to get close anyway because he hadnt seen the birds in a long time. The News-Press reports the burrows had also been listed on construction site plans and various permits. Villalba was charged Friday with intentionally killing or wounding a threatened or endangered species, its eggs, or its nest. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission of“cials said all six burrows were destroyed and rendered uninhabitable as a result of the construction.2 die in 5-vehicle crash on interstateDAVIE (AP) „ Authorities say two people have died after a tractor-trailer, an SUV, and three cars collided on a Florida interstate highway.

The Sun | Monday, August 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 JERICHO, West Bank (AP) „ Palestinian postal workers in the West Bank are sifting through eight years worth of undelivered mail held by Israel. In recent days the Palestinian postal staff in Jericho has been sorting through tons of undelivered mail in a room packed with letters, boxes and even a wheelchair. The Palestinians say Israel has withheld delivery of post shipments to the Palestinian territories through its national postal service since 2010. According to Palestinian postage of“cial Ramadan Ghazawi, Israel did not honor a 2008 agreement with the Palestinians to send and receive mail directly through Jordan. Mail was indeed delivered through Jordan but was denied entry by Israel, causing a yearslong backlog. It was blocked because each time they (Israel) used to give us a reason and an excuse. Once they said the terminal, the building that the post was supposed to arrive to is not ready and once (they said) to wait, theyre expecting a larger checking machine (security scanner),Ž he said. Israel says the sides came to an understanding about a year ago on postage delivery but that it has not yet resulted in a direct transfer,Ž according to Cogat, the Israeli defense body responsible for Palestinian civilian affairs in the West Bank. Cogat said in a statement that the one-time release of the ten and a half tons of mail was a gesture.Ž Jericho resident Rami Baker said ordering goods by mail has been a challenge. The problem that I suffer from is that the mail is very delayed. For example you order something and the website will tell you it will arrive within 20 to 30 days and after 30 days you get a note that it reached Jerusalem or Israel. After that, a day or two later, we come and check with the Palestinian post of“ce here in Jericho and they say we did not receive it yet from the Israeli side and this thing takes months,Ž he said. The development highlights the tight controls Israel maintains over many aspects „ even the mundane like postal delivery „ of Palestinian life.Palestinians sort through 8 years of mail held by Israel AP PHOTOPalestinian postal workers sift through eight years worth of undelivered mail held by Israel, at the post oce in the West Bank city of Jericho, Sunday.

Mexican state votes to decriminalize opiumMEXICO CITY (AP) „ The legislature in the violence-torn Mexican state of Guerrero is calling on the federal government to legalize production of opium for pharmaceutical use in a move it hopes will reduce crime and help local farmers. The mountainous state on Mexicos Paci“c Coast produces much of the poppy plants for heroin consumed in the U.S. Guerrero Gov. Hector Astudillo “rst ”oated the idea of decriminalizing the crop in 2016 to combat the states rampant drug gang violence. Guerrero legislators voted to send an initiative to the Mexican Senate for further debate. Incoming Interior Minister Olga Sanchez has expressed support for nationwide legalization of opium for medical purposes.Sentence doubled for Israeli who shot PalestinianJERUSALEM (AP) „ Israels Supreme Court has doubled the sentence of a former border policeman who was convicted in the death of a stone-throwing Palestinian teenager in 2014. The court on Sunday upheld a state appeal for a longer sentence, extending Ben Deris imprisonment from nine months to 18 months. The Jerusalem District Court ruled in April that Deri unjustly opened “re during demonstrations in the West Bank, killing 17-year-old Nadim Nuwara. The court ruled Nuwara did not pose an immediate threat to Deris life, and that he negligently loaded live rounds instead of rubber coated bullets typically used to disperse demonstrations. Deri agreed to a plea bargain that dropped the charge from manslaughter to causing severe bodily harm and death through negligence. He was also ordered to pay the victims family $14,000. DPA VIA APIn this Thursday photo the foundation walls of old buildings appear at the riverside of the Edersee in Waldeck, Germany, due to a low water level because of a drought period. Drought reveals remains of German Atlantis in lakeBERLIN (AP) „ A sustained drought in Germany has revealed the ruins of a village abandoned when a large reservoir was created more than 100 years ago. German news agency dpa reported Sunday that a bridge and the foundations of Berich „ known locally as the Atlantis of Lake Eder „ have recently emerged from the waters in the central state of Hesse. Germanys third-biggest reservoir is being drained to keep water levels on the Weser river high enough for shipping. Like many European countries, Germany has seen remarkably little rain in recent months. The government is expected to decide Wednesday whether to provide federal aid to farmers whose business has suffered from the drought. Eight German states have already reported drought-related damage amounting to 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion). HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD By ARI NATTERBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON …… President Donald Trump has attempted to block environmental regulations by his predecessor Barack Obama in part by delaying their implementation. But the strategy is losing in court. Two federal court rulings in the past week rejected the administrations attempts to delay major Environmental Protection Agency rules, and show the legal perils of stalling unwanted regulations. The court losses could jeopardize the Trump administrations plan to roll back as many regulations as it can, as quickly as possible. We have enough court losses to indicate this is a losing strategy on the Trump administrations behalf,Ž said Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate for watchdog group Public Citizen. The courts are saying you are repealing a rule by delaying it for this long of a period. And if you are repealing a rule, you have to go through all the procedural requirements.Ž That includes the timeand resourceintensive process of cost-bene“t analysis and public comment periods, Narang said. In one of last weeks determinations, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the administration didnt provide an adequate basis for its move to delay an Obama-era chemical safety rule put in place after a fertilizerplant explosion that killed 15 people in West, Texas, in 2013. The rule, which requires broader noti“cation about the types of chemicals stored at certain plants, had been opposed by industry. The court ruled it must be implemented immediately. A day before, the U.S. District Court in South Carolina reinstated an Obama-era rule de“ning the waterways covered by Clean Water Act regulations in 26 states, invalidating the Trump administrations attempt at a two-year nationwide delay. The rule, opposed by homebuilders, manufacturers and farmers, allows small waterways like wetlands and streams to be regulated under the Clean Water Act. Those losses come on top of earlier decisions halting the EPAs moves to delay Obama-era rules, such as one unilaterally suspending methane emissions regulations. A court termed the delays unauthorized and unreasonable. The courts have been pretty consistent in saying that EPA cant just change the science or manipulate the scienti“c process to get the desired outcomes of political appointees at the agency and the industries they are closely associated with,Ž said Yogin Kothari, a senior Washington representative with the Union of Concerned Scientists. Decisions that are scienti“cally indefensible should be, and will continue to be, struck down.Ž The losses arent mounting just at the EPA, which didnt respond to a request for comment. Regulatory rollbacks at the departments of Energy, Interior and Housing and Urban Development have all fared poorly in court. Of 11 reported judicial decisions in those areas through June, 10 went in favor of the plaintiffs, Bloomberg Government reported in July. Federal agencies have wide latitude to rewrite and rescind rules, but they must follow the Administrative Procedure Act, a law that aims to prevent regulatory whiplash. Under that law, agencies must “rst propose revisions, justify them, and give the public a chance to weigh in. Relatively small tweaks, such as a delay, can advance more quickly, but generally still require a notice and a comment period. At this point, court after court has rejected their approach,Ž said William Buzbee, a law professor at Georgetown University Law Center. Because they are trying to bypass what the law requires, the courts have been quite prickly, and in case after case they basically say if you want to do this you have to do this right.ŽCourt losses show limits of environment deregulation PITTSBURGH (AP) „ The bishop of Pittsburghs Roman Catholic diocese pushed back against a call for his resignation and said the diocese has followed every single stepŽ needed for responsible action after allegations of child sexual abuse. Bishop David Zubik spoke Sunday to George Stephanopoulos on ABCs This WeekŽ following the Tuesday release of a landmark report detailing widespread child sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania Roman Catholic dioceses. The report accused Zubik of not reporting credible allegations. Zubik said he can understand the rage people have reading the report and I feel that rage too.Ž But he said that since he became the bishop in 2007, we have followed every single step that we needed to follow to be responsible in our response to the victims.Ž Of“cials have, he said, listened to victims very carefully,Ž removed priests from dioceses, turned allegations over to appropriate district attorneys, let an independent review board look at whether a return to ministry is warranted and “nally, informed parishioners of the dioceses actions. The church of Pittsburgh today is not the church thats described in the grand jury report,Ž he said. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests called for Zubik to step down and for an end to donations until he steps down or takes proven steps that protect kids.Ž Asked about an allegation in the report that an alleged victim was told after a meeting with Zubik that the diocese would pay for college tuition and counseling in exchange for his silence, Zubik said the allegation was made after the person accused of abuse had died, and the diocese has decided since 2002 not to do any con“dentiality agreements.Ž But we needed to be able to assert whether or not the alleged behavior did in fact occur,Ž he said. And that was part of the discussion that took place in that particular case.ŽBishop: Church t oday not the church from report AP PHOTOIn this Saturday photo, Bishop David Zubik, current Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, takes questions from reporters after vocation Mass in Franklin Park, Pa.

Some improvement is expected by Wednesday. An air quality alert is also in place across Eastern Washington and North Idaho. The service says smoke from “res in British Columbia is expected to drift into Washington and Idaho, causing unhealthy air levels through Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued an air pollution advisory for southern Oregon that remains in effect until further notice. Of“cials say air quality over the area is poor because of smoke from wild“res and terrain that traps smoke in valleys.Police: Angry man waves gun at school danceTHATCHER, Ariz. (AP) „ A 72-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of waving a gun at a high school dance in Arizona because he didnt like the loud music. Police in the small southeastern Arizona town of Thatcher say Robert Layton drove to the high school parking lot around 11:45 p.m. Friday and complained about the loud music. Witnesses say Layton pulled a 9mm handgun out of his pocket and waved it around before pulling wires to disable the music. A DJ at the event wrestled Layton to the ground and disarmed him.

Several of the women at the center, she said, had distinguished careers in science and medicine, breaking down barriers that she is now able to walk through. All of them, she said, are happy to share their stories and expertise. This place was more full of life than many of my college classrooms,Ž she said. My other friends wanted to spend more time there than anywhere else.Ž The experience inspired her to start an organization, Old Friends and New,Ž which brought other Quinnipiac students to the center. John Morgan, a university spokesman, said it is becoming clear throughout the higher education community that the elderly are an untapped resource. He said the next step may be to have a Masonicare resident live in a university dorm. In Ohio, students from the Cleveland Institute of Music have been living at the Judson Manor retirement home since 2010. Kristina Kuprevicius, the centers director of marketing, said the arrangement provides a built-in audience for the students and welcome interaction with the younger generation for the seniors. Between the two generations, there is a lot of comradery that starts to build, because as one resident told me, We dont have baggage with each other,Ž she said. Students can ask residents about certain issues and how they should react to their parents, and the seniors are kept up to date by the students.Ž Kozar said the students have learned that the elderly arent necessarily frail and the older residents have learned that Millennials arent necessarily self-absorbed, she said. J.P. Venoit, the chief executive of Masonicare, said when they became involved in the Quinnipiac program he assumed the students would come in, do their required work with the elderly and spend the rest of the time in their rooms studying. That hasnt been the case,Ž he said. They arent going through the motions. The have become fully engaged. That has been the interesting part. Its turned out to be something much better, much more than we thought it would be.ŽSENIORSFROM PAGE 1 Twitter has insisted that many allegations of anticonservative bias re”ect only actions against those engaged in threats or other banned behaviors, regardless of the political content. The restrictions against Jones were a reversal from earlier in the month, when Dorsey said Jones would be allowed to continue to use Twitter because he hadnt violated the companys rules. That was at odds with moves by Facebook and YouTube, which pulled Jones off their platforms over content that violated hate-speech and harassment policies. Dorsey, who has declared his intention to improve the healthŽ of Twitter conversations, said hes open to changing the platform to help avoid abuses. Possible initiatives including placing lower emphasis on follower counts and adding context to misinformation, he said. Social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook spent years boasting that they were committed to open discourse, only to face backlash as they became platforms for the spread of false information, racist violence and election interference. The controversy, though, has also fueled concerns about censorship. Trumps re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, wrote in the Washington Examiner Aug. 16 that a law providing social companies a shield against liability for most content posted by users is enabling a new Orwellian impulse.ŽTWITTERFROM PAGE 1fastest way to bring the investigation to a close. The president encouraged him to testify, is happy that he did, is quite secure that there is nothing in the testimony that will hurt the president,Ž Giuliani said. McGahns attorney William Burck added in a statement: President Trump, through counsel, declined to assert any privilege over Mr. McGahns testimony, so Mr. McGahn answered the Special Counsel teams questions fulsomely and honestly, as any person interviewed by federal investigators must.Ž Trump on Sunday continued to rail against the Mueller investigation, which he has labeled a witch hunt.Ž So many lives have been ruined over nothing „ McCarthyism at its WORST!Ž Trump tweeted, referencing the indiscriminate and damaging allegations made by Sen. Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s to expose communists. Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby! Rigged Witch Hunt!Ž he later wrote. Giuliani, in his interview, also acknowledged that the reason for the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer, arranged by Trumps son Donald Trump Jr., was that they had been promised dirt on Trumps 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. The meeting was originally for the purpose of getting information about Clinton,Ž he said, adding that the Trump team didnt know that Natalia Veselnitskaya was Russian „ even though emails later released by Trump Jr. show that she had been described as a Russian government attorney.Ž Giuliani also tried to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with Muellers team wouldnt accomplish much because of the he-saidshe-said natur e of witnesses recollections. Its somebodys version of the truth, not the truth,Ž he said, telling NBCs Chuck Todd: Truth isnt truth.Ž Todd appeared ”ummoxed by the comment, responding: This is going to become a bad meme.ŽCOUNSELFROM PAGE 1By JILL COLVIN and LOLITA C. BALDORASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Former CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday that he is considering taking legal action to try to prevent President Donald Trump from stripping other current and former of“cials security clearances. Speaking on NBCs Meet the Press,Ž Brennan said hes been contacted by a number of lawyers about the possibility of an injunction in the wake of Trumps move to revoke his clearance and threaten nine others who have been critical of the president or are connected to the Russia probe. If my clearances and my reputation as Im being pulled through the mud now, if thats the price were going to pay to prevent Donald Trump from doing this against other people, to me its a small price to pay,Ž Brennan said. So I am going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future. And if it means going to court, I will do that.Ž Brennan, who served in President Barack Obamas administration, said that while hell “ght on behalf of his former CIA colleagues, its also up to Congress to put aside politics and step in. This is the time that your country is going to rely on you, not to do what is best for your party but what is best for the country,Ž he said. Trump yanked Brennans security clearance last week, saying he felt he had to do somethingŽ about the riggedŽ probe of Russian election interference. And he has said he may do the same for nine others, including a Justice Department of“cial whose wife worked for the “rm involved in producing a dossier on Trumps ties to Russia. An executive order signed in 1995 by President Bill Clinton lays out the process for approving security clearances and describes a detailed revocation and appeal procedure. Former Obama-era CIA Director Leon Panetta, who also served as defense secretary, said Sunday that Trump must abide by the executive order unless he decides to change or cancel it. Speaking on CBS Face the Nation,Ž he said Trumps decision to revoke Brennans clearance raises questions about whether he followed due process. Brennans legal warning came as other of“cials joined the growing chorus of critics „ now more than 75 intelligence of“cials „ denouncing Trumps security clearance threats, saying they have a right to express their views on national security issues without fear of punishment. Retired Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George W. Bush and Obama, likened it to President Richard Nixons use of a political enemies list. Mullen told Fox News SundayŽ that while he doesnt agree with Brennans decision to criticize the president, the former CIA director has the right to freedom of speech unless hes revealing classi“ed information. It immediately brings back the whole concept of the enemies list,Ž Mullen said, and even before that, in the early 50s, the McCarthy era, where the administration starts putting together lists of individuals that dont agree with them and that historically, obviously, has proven incredibly problematic for the country.Ž Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin agreed with Trump that Brennans comments really did cross a line.Ž But, he said, rather than pulling of“cials security clearances, Trump should avoid politicizing the issue and simply deny them access to classi“ed material. I dont want to see an enemies list,Ž he said.Brennan considers legal action to stop clearance revocations AP FILE PHOTOFormer CIA Director John Brennan AP PHOTOCathleen Dacey, right, a Quinnipiac University law student, talks to Jeanne Piccirillo, 90, and Cairisse Miessau, 85, at Masonicare at Ashlar Village, a retirement community in Wallingford, Conn.

The Sun | Monday, August 20, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Several years ago, I attended a presentation about insomnia. A registered nurse discussed how, in her career as a nursing home nurse, she had many residents with insomnia. She stated that she had amazing success with these residents. The snack they gave residents was crackers and cheese or peanut butter crackers. I was skeptical at rst, then one night at 2 a.m., on my fourth night of insomnia, I tried eating 2 teaspoons of peanut butter. Bingo! I slept. Whenever my insomnia occurs, I eat 2 teaspoons of peanut butter, and in less than 15 minutes I'm sleeping. „ B.J.T. ANSWER: One reason that some people think this may work is that the protein content in peanut butter is a source of tryptophan, which increases serotonin levels to help one relax. I also have read that this eect is so small as to be clinically meaningless, and that any sleep eect is due to placebo. I suspect the truth is a combination. Two tablespoons of peanut butter is almost 200 calories, so this is not a good choice for someone struggling with too much weight. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have been hearing a lot about making yogurt at home. Is homemade yogurt a recipe for food poisoning? „ H.C. ANSWER: Homemade yogurt is easy to make, can be more healthy than store-bought as it has very little sugar, and can be made very safely with minimal precautions. The key is to make sure the milk is fresh and sterile, then to carefully add in healthy bacteria. All you need to do is boil fresh milk to a bare simmer (to kill any unhealthy bacteria); cool it down to 100-110 F (37-42 C), which is an optimal temperature for growth of the healthy bacteria that help prevent the growth of unhealthy bacteria or yeast; stir in a few tablespoons of plain yogurt with active healthy bacterial cultures; and keep it in a warm place for six to 12 hours or so. You can use the yogurt you just made as the starter for the next batch. Add in pureed fresh fruit, and you have a healthier and cheaper yogurt than you can buy at the store. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a friend who is a longtime user of diet sodapop. A year ago, she was diagnosed with colon cancer and spots on her liver. She is taking chemo again now. She continues to consume diet soda, which concerns me because I have heard of possible adverse eects of articial sweeteners. How would you advise her? I hesitate to say anything, since she might be getting more unsolicited advice than she wants already. „ M.K. ANSWER: I think that articial sweeteners are unlikely to have had any role in causing her cancer in the rst place, nor in her treatment or risk of recurrence. It's more important for her to stay hydrated during chemotherapy, and she should have what is easiest for her „ and if that's diet soda, that's ne. Even if water is the best choice, I agree with your thoughtfulness: Now is not the time to give unsolicited health advice.

Please allow four weeks for delivery.DEAR ABBY: What do you say when a friend's son has committed a horric crime? Does one say, "I'm sorry" or "Call me," or merely pat them on the shoulder and move on? How do I even approach her? I knew her quite well until I moved away and started my life on an opposite coast. Telling her what her son did is not her fault somehow seems trite. I found out about the young man's crime from the news media. I haven't been in contact with his mother for some time, which makes me feel awkward. „ Lost For Words DEAR LOST: I'm sure your friend could use some emotional support right now. If you have her phone number, call her and tell her you know she's hurting, and she's in your thoughts and prayers. Tell her you are with her in spirit and hope she knows you care about her and her son. Then listen. There's not much more you can do than that. DEAR ABBY: I am almost 14 and entering high school. I am really scared and don't know what to do. I just want to go to class, study hard, get good grades and get out. But it's not that simple. Can you give me some advice about high school and what I should watch out for? „ Scared Of High School In Pennsylvania DEAR SCARED: Calm your fears. It may comfort you to know every student feels the way you do when rst entering high school. It's a new environment, and you will encounter new people. Be nice to everyone, and most of them will like you. That's how friendships are made. Look for activities that interest you, and join some if you can. You already know you will need to study hard. If you do, good grades will follow. As to what you should watch out for: If some of the other students are doing things that you consider wrong, don't join in. And keep in mind there's a school counselor you can talk to if you have concerns. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF concerns wedding gifts: "Dear Heloise: I recently attended the wedding of a friend's daughter, and since they made no bones about wanting cash for their honeymoon, I gave them $100. "I was told that asking people to fund a honeymoon is now the new normal for couples getting married. Am I out of step with modern weddings?" „ Brandi W., New Braunfels, Texas Brandi, we've had several letters on this new trend of couples asking for money for their honeymoon. Readers, what would you do if you were asked to give money for a couple's honeymoon? „ Heloise Dear Readers: Here are some other uses for old newspapers: Cut into narrow strips to use in mice and hamster cages.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Monday, August 20, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone will come to you with a problem, but unless they ask directly for advice and aid, refrain from intruding in this way. Instead, ask questions that will help them better understand the situation and their feelings about it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel like youre destined for so much more than just dragging yourself to the same tasks day after day. Changing it up will give you a glimpse at a glorious purpose, or at least a few dierent options to consider. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just as it may benet a business to obtain nancial investors, it will benet your heart to get the emotional investment of others. How? By sharing your vision, your plan, and relevant proof of past success. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Why not accidentallyŽ reveal a story that might make you enormously appealing, or proves that youre the right person for a certain job or role? If you dont tell them, make sure they learn from other channels. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may seem that people are being callous when really its just that they are not as conscientious as you are. It would be hard for anyone to be on a day like today. Youre really paying attention. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Youll do something youre not ready to do. This is, of course, the perfect recipe for growth. People dont grow by doing what they already are fully knowledgeable and experienced in. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Dont let the contradictions and complexities of the world (which will be numerous, obvious and mind-boggling today) turn you into a cynic. There is denitely little to be solved or celebrated from a cynical frame of mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Youll be in a position to recognize others, but when are you not? Whats dierent now is that this is a critical juncture. Your acknowledgement will mean and contribute so much to the momentum of the team. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youre not always right, but youre more perceptive than most. You will sense what another is feeling and you may even know what they need when they dont know it themselves. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In order to become who you might be, youll have to let go of something about who you are. Everything is a trade-o. You get to choose what youre willing to trade though, if thats any consolation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Youve been careful to observe rules and follow protocol. Its caused you to hold your tongue, change your tune and bend in a number of ways, with varying degrees of comfort. For a worthy goal, youll not regret these eorts. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Dont let dazzling scenery and action keep you from recognizing a quiet truth. Nor should you let a boring environment keep you from it. Close both your lidded eyes to see with the one that has no lid. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 20). You know yourself better than ever and are an excellent predictor of what will make you happy. Youll feel lucky for the array of choices available to you „ including options you only dreamed about in times past. And the most beautiful part is that they will be very specic to you. Cancer and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 29 and 18.

Its a sure“ re win for the “ lm, which cost $30 million to produce and went into the weekend with months of buzz and a 93 percent freshŽ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Breakout star Henry Golding told The Associated Press in Sunday that the “ lms performance is a testament to the people who are turning up.Ž Its not just the Asians who are coming.

The “ lmmakers even turned down a big offer from Net” ix to give the historically signi“ cant “ lm a theatrical platform. Cast members and fans started using the hashtag #GoldOpen to try to encourage more opening weekend support. Director Jon M. Chu tweeted his appreciation Sunday and asked audiences to keep spreading the word. We still have a long run to go but our message to the world has been heard.

The preseason says otherwise. Miami has allowed 299 yards rushing in the first two exhibition games. That includes 226 yards Friday at Carolina, and 71 on one play „ a touchdown run by Christian McCaffrey on the second snap of the night. The leaky ground defense is especially worrisome because the same problem contributed greatly to a 6-10 finish in 2017. The Dolphins gave up over 170 yards rushing three times during a five-game losing streak that sent the season south. Despite evidence to the contrary, Gase says his run defense is improved. I can see how its starting to come together,Ž he said Sunday. Clean up some of the mistakes, and well be all right,Ž middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan said. The front seven is still adjusting to the loss of five-time Pro Bowl tackle Ndamukong Suh, who was cut when his enormous contract became too burdensome. Last week the Dolphins signaled theyre struggling to replace Suh when they signed veteran Kendall Langford, who had been out of the NFL since early November. Langford was rushed into action at Carolina. He played 18 snaps, made no assignment mistakes and is in excellent shape, Gase said. Langford joins a group of tackles that also includes veteran newcomer Akeem Spence, perennial underachiever Jordan Phillips and two players taken on the final day of the 2017 draft, Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor. New defensive line coach Kris Kocurek plans a heavy rotation to keep everyone fresh.

By KEN POWTAKAssociated PressBOSTON „ Jalen Beeks made his major league debut at Fenway Park earlier this season, and it didnt go well. Neither did his next appearance on that mound. Traded away by Boston last month, Beeks returned Sunday with the Tampa Bay Rays and fared a lot better. Beeks pitched four strong innings and the Rays limited Boston to two hits, blanking the AL East leaders 2-0. I didnt pitch well here the first two times I pitched here, so it felt good here to get the team a win,Ž Beeks said. It was satisfying.Ž The 25-year-old lefty was tagged for five runs in the first inning by Detroit on June 7. More than a month later, he allowed three runs in just 2 ‡ innings against Texas, leaving him with a 12.79 ERA for Boston. That was the end of his career with the Red Sox, who dealt Beeks before the trade deadline for pitcher Nathan Eovaldi. Facing the team with the best record in the majors, Beeks (2-1) gave up one hit in relief, striking out three and walking two. He was throwing harder. I saw 94 (mph),Ž Boston manager Alex Cora said. I didnt see that here. Besides that, same cutter, fastball, breaking ball. He did a good job.Ž Joey Wendle and C.J. Cron homered as the Rays topped Boston for just the fifth time in 16 games this season. Six of those Tampa Bay losses have been by one run. The Red Sox has lost only four of their last 21 games. They were shut out for the fifth time this season. Sergio Romo worked the ninth for his 16th save and 100th of his career. Reliever Diego Castillo started for the Rays, getting five outs.

By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressBOCA RATON, Fla. „ After leading the nation in touchdowns last season, Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary got a gift from Owls coach Lane Kiffin. It was a book. The title: Ego is the enemy.Ž Kiffin said the book worked wonders on him, and hes hoping the same rings true with his leading rusher. Singletarys 32 touchdowns on the ground in 2017 was the third-best single-season total by anyone in major college football history, and he „ along with his big-name coach, of course „ are two of the biggest reasons why the Owls were the runaway pick to repeat as Conference USA champions this season. Singletary read the book. It seems to be working. Every day, youve got to come to work and put in the work to make it happen,Ž Singletary said.

Instead, he had two eventful races and left the track without a win. Busch arrived at Bristol trying to add to his career 21 national victories on the bullring. He led the Xfinity Series race Friday before an early accident knocked him out. He faced even more ups and downs Saturday in the Cup race. Busch, looking to win a Cup event at Bristol for the eighth time, started a 15-car wreck on the second lap. He later made contact with Martin Truex Jr. to knock his championship rival out of the race, and finished 20th after his damaged Toyota spun to bring out the final caution of the race. It just wasnt meant for us this weekend, I guess,Ž Busch said. That Busch was even challenging for the lead near the end of the race marked a stunning turnaround after such a dispiriting start. It underscored the tenacity of the Joe Gibbs Racing team almost as much as any of Buschs six Cup victories this season. The race had barely started when Buschs car drifted up the banking, bounced off Ryan Blaneys car and spun in front of much of the field. Buschs car was affected enough that he could have just called it a race. He was two laps behind and seemingly had little chance of getting back in contention. The points leader already is locked into the playoffs, so finishing Saturday night was about pride and his love of Bristol. Busch gradually worked his way through the field and was back on the lead lap by the start of the final stage. Before his final spin, Busch believed he had a realistic shot at a comefrom-behind victory. That was just me and this team and never giving up and being able to drive up through the field like that,Ž Busch said. (Our car) was fast, even torn up and wrecked and everything else, it was fast.Ž Busch was in third place when he closed onto Truexs bumper, causing Truexs car to spin and hit the outside wall. Busch blamed himself for the wreck that ended Truexs hopes for his first career short-track victory. I didnt think I was next to him yet, and I clipped him and sent him for a whale of a ride,Ž Busch said. Hopefully, hes all right and everything is OK there. I hated that I clipped him, I know he could have had a good shot to win the race, too.Ž Buschs own chances ended shortly afterward, capping a frustrating weekend. The victory instead went to Kurt Busch, Kyles older brother One night earlier, Kyle Busch led the Xfinity race for the first 70 laps until a flat tire caused him to hit the wall and knocked him out of the race. The car was really good yesterday and it got in the wall, and three laps later it had a flat tire,Ž Busch said. And today I wasnt even pushing that hard, I was just trying to maintain and not get hit, and I ended up sliding up the racetrack and spinning myself out.Ž Busch had been aiming to win both weekend events at Bristol. He has done that twice before, in 2010 and 2017. Even on a weekend in which he didnt post his usual results, Busch still displayed the qualities that make him one of the circuits most polarizing and powerful drivers. He dominated the Xfinity race up until his exit, then showed his frustration through his facial expressions during a brief post-race interview that instantly caught fire on social media. He was greeted by a chorus of boos after choosing DJ Khaleds All I Do Is WinŽ as the song to accompany his introduction NASCARKyle Busch not his usual dominant self at Bristol this timeSEE DOLPHINS, 3 SEE NASCAR, 3 SEE FAU, 3 SEE RAYS, 2CHAMPION CROWNED Snedeker wins Wnydham Championship Page 6

Moments later, she covered her face for a joyous cry, wiping the tears away with her sweat-soaked blue wristband. One point away from another loss, she had pulled off her biggest win. Top-ranked Simona Halep let a match point slip away during the second-set tiebreaker, and Bertens rallied for a 2-6, 7-6 (6), 6-2 victory and the Western & Southern Open title on Sunday that left her as stunned as everyone else. I cannot find words for this moment,Ž she said. Playing her first hardcourt final, the Dutch clay-court specialist ended Haleps streak of nine straight wins, including the title at Montreal a week earlier. Shed never beaten a top-ranked player, but wore down Halep at the end of her two draining weeks. During the week in Cincinnati, Halep had one match suspended overnight by rain and wound up playing twice in one day to reach the semifinals. She controlled the first set on Sunday and had a chance to close it out, leading 6-5 in the tiebreaker. When that slipped away, she never recovered, playing her worst in the final set „ 13 unforced errors that gave Bertens a chance to pull away. I am a little bit tired,Ž she said. Halep will be ranked No. 1 through the U.S. Open. She fell to 0-3 in Cincinnati finals, finishing as the runner-up in 2015 and each of the last two years. Bertens has worked on her hard-court game and her confidence on the surface. In three previous appearances in Cincinnati, she won a total of one match. She became the first unseeded player to win in Cincinnati since Vera Zvonareva in 2006. In the mens bracket, Novak Djokovic was looking for a breakthrough win against nemesis Roger Federer. Djokovic was 0-5 in Cincinnati, the only ATP Masters 1000 event he hasnt won. Hed become the first to claim all nine.

Staff reportsThere was no shortage of offense, but there wasnt quite enough for the Stone Crabs to lift themselves over the Cardinals in an 11-8 loss in 11 innings on Sunday. Despite the loss, Charlotte (67-55) maintains a half game lead over Ft. Myers in the division. The two clubs combined for 24 hits and 19 runs, starting with an RBI-single from Palm Beachs Ryan McCarvel in the top of the second inning to open the scorin g Charlotte responded in the bottom of the inning when Eleardo Cabrera singled on a soft fly ball to left field to score Jake Fraley. Palm Beach (67-53) retook the lead in the third with an RBI-double from Brian OKeefe, scoring Stefan Trosclair. In the bottom of the sixth, the Stone Crabs took their first lead of the morning when Tristan Gray and Cabrera each drove in a run to put Charlotte up 3-2. The call and response ensued in the ninth inning as Palm Beach regained its lead once again with a two-run inning. But, as they had done all game, the Stone Crabs threw one more punch with Kevin Padlo sent in the game-tying run with a bases-loaded walk to force extra innings. Once in extras it was much of the same. OKeefe homered in the 10th, but Jermaine Palacios evened things up with a ground-rule double that scored Joey Roach. But in the 11th, the pitching fell apart. Relief pitcher Zach Mozingo gave up five earned runs and dug Charlotte a hole it couldnt get out of. Facing a five-run deficit, the Stone Crabs embarked on a comeback, but couldnt muster up the necessary offense. Padlo came up big again with a two-run homer, scoring Fraley, but that was the end of the surge.

The Sun / Monday, August 20, 2018 SP Page 3Daniel Watson Medical News Today BOSTON Š The medical community now has a safer and more effective alternative to sex pills, which they can immediately start offering to male patients. It will not require a prescription. The alternative, called Sensum+ is an amazing new sex cream that activates a sensation pathway on the penis known as TRPA1. When applied as directed, it leads to incredible arousal and much more satisfying erections. It also promotes powerful climaxes and ultimately results in signi“ cant imp rovements in performance. Men can expect outstanding sexual imp rovements with regular use. The penis will become hyper sensitive, making them easily aroused and excitableŽ explains Dr. Henry Esber, the Boston based physician who introduced Sensum+ to market. And thats because Sensum+ does what no other sex pill or drug has done before Š it stimulates a special sensory pathway right below the skin, which leads to phenomenal sensation.Ž Overtime, constant exposure (especially if circumcised) leads to decreased penis sensitivity, which can cause problems with arousal and erection quality. There just isnt enough feeling to get excited.Ž Diabetes, antidepressants and normal aging also leads to desensitization, a can make the situation even worse.Ž This is what makes Sensum+ so effective and why the clinical studies and clinical use studies have been so positive.ŽMISDIAGNOSIS LEADS TO UNNEEDED PRESCRIPTIONSAfter years of clinical research and testing, Dr. Esber and his team have discovered an incredible compound that triggers arousal while helping men achieve erections more easily. This compound isnt a drug. Its the active ingredient in Sensum+ And according to users, it produces sensational results. Many men report remarkable imp rovements in sexual performance and overall satisfaction. They are more sexually active than theyve been in years with the average Sensum+ user over the age of 50. Clinical studies show Sensum+ s key ingredient activates the TRPA1 sensation pathway right below the skin of the penis. According to research, many men adults and seniors who suffer sexually have lost sensation in their penis due to constant rubbing and exposure and health related issues such as diabetes, hernia surgery, use of some antidepressants, multiple sclerosis, and other type of illnesses. This desensitization often makes sex extremely challenging. Without a 100% feeling in the penis, its next to impossible to get truly aroused. Worse, modern day sex drugs have absolutely no effect on sensation and are laden with side effects. They simply stimulate an erection by enhancing blood ” ow. Its why most men are rarely satis“ ed after taking them and why Sensum+ users are al ways stocking up on more and couldnt be happier. We knew the science behind Sensum+ was there, but we never expected results like were seeing. Its far exceeded our expectationsŽ said a spokesperson for the company. A STAGGERING 80% IMPROVEMENT IN SENSITIVITYResearchers have conducted several clinical studies on Sensum+ and the results from the most recent are undoubtedly the most impressive. A data analysis of three clinical sur veys of 370 men showed that an amazing 80% of Sensum+ users experienced dramatic improvements while using the cream and as a result were aroused easier and a phenomenal boost in performance. Additionally, 77.4% of men also reported much more satisfying climaxes, making sex for both them and their partners nearly 300% more satisfying. I have full feeling and sensitivity back in my penis. Everything feels better. My erections are harder, Im more easily aroused, I can “ nally climax again. This stuff honestly works like magic in the bedroom. I couldnt be happier at 66!Ž raves one Sensum+ user. HOW SENSUM+ WORKSSensum+ is a new sex cream for men thats to be applied twice a day for the “ rst two weeks then just once every day after. There are no harmful side effects for either the user or partner. It also does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is an organic compound known as cinnamaldehyde with a patented combination of sexually rousing extracts. Research shows that as men get older, they often lose sensitivity to the penis. Although very subtle, this desensitization can signi“ cantly hinder sexual performance and lead to serious problems with becoming aroused and staying/getting hard. The cinnamaldehyde in Sensum+ is one of the only known ingredients to activate a special sensation pathway on the penis called TRPA1. Once activated, it restores tremendous sensation to the penis, stimulating arousal and powerful erections. This would explain why so many users are experiencing impressive results so quickly and why the makers of Sensum+ offer their low cots cream with an amazing guarantee. GUARANTEE DISCOUNTED SUPPLY TAKES RISK OFF CONSUMERSA large percentage of men report life changing results with Sensum+ Thats why it is now being sold with an above-industry standard guarantee. We can only make this guarantee because we are 100% certain this cream works,Ž says Esber. We want to take risk off the consumers. So besides offering massive discounts, were also offering this guarantee, so they dont have to risk a cent.Ž Heres how it works: Use the cream exactly as directed and in just one week, you must feel a signi“ cant improvement in sexual sensations. You must be more easily aroused with harder, longer lasting erections and be having the best sex youve had in years. Otherwise, simply return the empty bottles. Then, the company will refund your money immediately.HOW TO GET SENSUM+This is the of“ cial release of Sensum+ As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to any reader who calls within the next 48 hours.

Busch likely didnt gain any more fans with his role in forcing Truex out of the race. He said afterward he meant no harm and added that he should send a cake to Truexs crew as a form of apology. Theyll probably throw that one away anyways,Ž Busch quipped, but it ruined their day from being able to get a win or even a second.Ž Busch leads the points standings with two races remaining before the playoffs begin.NASCARFrom Page 1The defensive lineman making the biggest impact so far is former Pro Bowl end Robert Quinn, an offseason acquisition who had two sacks at Carolina. He had 19 sacks with the Rams in 2013. Hopefully I can get back to those good numbers,Ž Quinn said. Thats kind of my mindset „ to break records and do something extreme.Ž Overall, Gase said, the remaking of the front four is on schedule. I like where our d-line is,Ž the coach said. Weve just got to make sure we do a better job of fitting the runs right, but theyre attacking.Ž There are fresh faces at linebacker, too, and both are youngsters from Ohio State. McMillan is starting in the middle after missing all of his rookie season in 2017 because of a knee injury. Rookie Jerome Baker, a third-round pick, is the front-runner to start on the outside opposite veteran Kiko Alonso. McMillan and Baker are two big reasons Gase remains optimistic about the direction of the run defense. Well get those guys up to speed,Ž Gase said. Theyll be doing it right once we hit the first week. We have athletic guys in that second level. Well give them opportunities to make plays, and theyll make them.Ž McMillan and Baker were nowhere to be found on McCaffreys long run, however, and defensive backs Bobby McCain and T.J. McDonald took bad angles. We had two guys get too aggressive in the secondary,Ž Gase said. Such mistakes are correctable, the coach said. He has less than three weeks to fix them.DOLPHINSFrom Page 1Singletarys chances at getting into the Heisman Trophy race „ and Kiffin said hes comfortable with that because Singletary wont be fazed. I am because of who is he is,Ž said Kiffin, who used his Twitter platform to push for Singletary to get some Heisman attention last season when he and the Owls were rolling along to the C-USA title and an 11-3 season. Been fortunate to be around this a lot. Been around four of them who won it. I think it depends on the kid. They asked me about it, it wasnt my idea, and I said because of who he is, he can understand.Ž Many things have changed in a hurry in Boca Raton. Kiffins first season resulted in two more wins than the Owls had gotten in the previous three seasons combined „ they were 3-9 in 2014, 2015 and 2016. FAU started getting tons of national attention, first because of Kiffins presence and the story line of the former Oakland, USC and Tennessee head coach essentially starting over in obscurity at a program that had struggled for years. But the wins started piling quickly, and FAU is considered by many observers as a team that could reach the national rankings this fall. Kiffin, however, is insisting that the success of last year wont help at all this year. Just like 3-9 had nothing to do with going 11-3, 11-3 is going to have nothing to do with this season,Ž Kiffin said. Every season is a season of its own. Thats why every team in America doesnt improve every year, because every teams new.Ž Heres some of what to know about FAU going into 2018:THE SCHEDULEPut simply, its tough. FAU opens the season Sept. 1 at Oklahoma, a game where the Owls have been listed as a three-touchdown underdog. FAUs other road nonconference game is Sept. 21 at UCF, which went 13-0 last season. Air Force and BethuneCookman are the other nonconference games for the Owls, who went 9-0 in C-USA games last season. A potential stumbling block „ at C-USA finalist North Texas, on Nov. 15, a short week for FAU.MORE SINGLETARYConference USAs preseason player of the year probably could have broken Barry Sanders record of 37 rushing TDs last season if Kiffin was so inclined. Singletary didnt even get rolling until Week 4, after having two rushing touchdowns in the Owls first three games. And he was held under 20 carries in six of FAUs 13 contests last season.YOUTH IS SERVEDKiffin was the youngest coach in modern NFL history when he was hired to coach the Raiders. He knows age is just a number. Kiffin hired 25-year-old Charlie Weis Jr. to be the teams offensive coordinator. Kiffin raves about Weis, but its unclear if Kiffin will actually allow him to call plays when the season rolls around.DEFENSIVE STARLinebacker Azeez Al-Shaair gave FAU a big boost when he announced after the Boca Raton Bowl (a 50-3 FAU rout of Akron) that he was returning for his senior season. Al-Shaair led the Owls with 147 tackles last season, and hes been a leader on and off the field. He should be playing on Sundays in 2019.STREAKINGFAU enters the season on a 10-game winning streak, after starting 1-3 a year ago. The only longer streak in the country is UCFs 13-game run to a perfect season in 201 7 .FAUFrom Page 1 By JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressORCHARD PARK, N.Y. „ Buffalo Bills quarterback AJ McCarron is getting a second opinion to determine the severity of an injury to his throwing shoulder, and veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams is in jeopardy of missing the start of the regular season with a knee injury. Coach Sean McDermott declined to provide much more detail on Sunday, shortly before the Bills returned to practice two days after both players were hurt in the first half of a 19-17 preseason victory at Cleveland. McDermott said he could not provide an update on McCarron because tests on his right shoulder were not totally conclusive.Ž As for Williams, the coach listed the starter as being week to week. While the Bills practiced outdoors, Williams was spotted by The Associated Press walking into the weight room. He walked without a noticeable limp but had a long black wrap covering most of his right leg. Williams was injured when a Browns player rolled up on the back of his right leg during Carlos Hydes 19-yard run up the middle on the third play of the second quarter. Williams had difficulty putting much weight on the leg while being helped off the field and was spotted wearing a large brace afterward. McCarron was hurt during one of Buffalos first four series against Cleveland, during which he was sacked once and hit several other times. McCarrons injury opens the door for rookie firstround draft pick, John Allen, or returning backup, Nathan Peterman, to land the starting job in whats been an offseason-long competition. With the Bills being cautious in electing not to rush Allens development McCarron was considered the initial front-runner for the job to open the season. He is the most experienced quarterback on the roster after spending his first four NFL seasons as Andy Daltons backup in Cincinnati before signing with the Bills in free agency in March. McCarron struggled in his first preseason start and had little help from an offensive line that had difficulty stopping the Browns pass rush. He was sacked once, hit several times and finished going 3 of 6 for 12 yards during four series in which the Bills failed to generate a first down. Allen replaced McCarron and led Buffalo on scoring drives „ a touchdown and two field goals „ on each of his three possessions. He finished 9 of 13 for 60 yards and showed poise by avoiding the pass rush and stepping up in the pocket to hit Rod Streater for a 2-yard touchdown pass in a thirdand-goal situation.NFL: BILLSAJ McCarron getting 2nd opinion on shoulder injury

Page 6 SP Monday, August 20, 2018 / The SunCOLLEGE FOOTBALL: FSUDeCalon Brooks ready to make a name for himselfBy MATT BAKERTampa Bay TimesDeCalon Brooks doesnt only want to be known as Derrick Brooks son. Yes, he plays the same position (linebacker) at the same school (Florida State) where his Hall of Fame father won a national title before becoming a Bucs legend. But Brooks wants you to know that he isnt his dad. Im my own person,Ž DeCalon Brooks said. And now is the time for him to start making a name for himself. After redshirting last season and battling back from a knee injury, the Gaither High alumnus is healthy and ready to contribute for the Seminoles. As importantly, FSU lost all three starting linebackers from last season, leaving holes Brooks can help fill immediately. Hes going to make a lot of plays for us,Ž linebackers coach Raymond Woodie said. Woodie initially hoped Brooks would be making those plays for him at USF; he recruited him heavily as a part of coach Willie Taggarts Bulls staff. That process began not because of DeCalons dad but because of his impressive production on the field (105 tackles and six sacks as a high school senior) and in the classroom. I dont compare him to his dad,Ž Woodie said. If DeCalons last name wasnt Brooks, and if he wasnt the son of Derrick Brooks, I still would have recruited him because hes a tough, old-school type player. I want those types of guys in our room.Ž The Seminoles are still sorting out exactly where Brooks fits into that room. He was fast at Gaither and has only gotten quicker. Combine that with his size (5-foot-11, 211 pounds), and Brooks seems like a match for the STAR linebacker/ safety hybrid, where five-star freshman Jaiden Woodbey could also see time. Brooks has also worked as the money (weakside) linebacker. Regardless of whether, or where, he starts, FSU coaches expect him to be an integral part of coordinator Harlon Barnetts unit. He plays defense like hes supposed toƒŽ Taggart said. Youre talking about just a flatout football player. You dont get many thats better than DeCalon.Ž Coaches say Brooks has done everything he needs to do this offseason to earn playing time and maximize the potential they saw from him in Tampa. He worked his way back from the knee injury that hobbled him for almost all of last season. The instincts Brooks started honing in the Tampa Bay Youth Football League have only gotten better through his dedication to studying film. He was up all offseason in the office trying to learn everything he could,Ž Barnett said. Almost every day he was up there. Now youre seeing the results of that out here on the field.Ž Because fans havent seen those results yet, Brooks is still defined by his dad, who watched practice last week at Bradentons IMG Academy and has his No. 10 jersey retired. FSU doesnt see it that way. Coaches might mention his bloodlines, but only as one of his traits, alongside his competitiveness or toughness. The Seminoles dont want DeCalon Brooks to be his dad. They want him to be himself. Thats all Brooks wants, too. I really dont get sick of me talking about my dad, because my dad did so many great things „ and hes my father, you know?Ž Brooks said. I take pride in that. ƒ Its trying to get that across peoples minds, were two different people.Ž Seminoles fans know all about Derrick Brooks. Now its time for them to find out what DeCalon can do. TIMES PHOTOFlorida State linebacker DeCalon Brooks (seen here during the Seminoles spring game) is ready for a big role this season.By TIM REYNOLDAssociated PressMIAMI„ Butch Davis wasted no time in his quest to turn Florida International into a winner. Hes now trying to see if FIU can win consistently. Davis went 8-5 a year ago in his first season at FIU, guiding the Panthers to their first bowl game since 2011 and leading them to their first winning record in Conference USA play since joining the league five years ago. Theres some clear momentum going into 2018, though theres also some significant holes to fill „ quarterback being among them. Weve got some huge goals for 2018,Ž Davis said. First, though, theyve g ot to make a hu g e decision at quarterback. The graduation of Alex McGough means someone else takes the reins of the FIU offense, with returnee Christian Alexander and Bowling Green graduate transfer James Morgan vying for the spot. Someone will obviously have to start in the opener against Indiana on Sept. 1, but Davis has floated the possibility that both may play and the race may last through the seasons first couple weeks. You cant have a great football team unless you have a really good starting quarterback,Ž Davis said. Those two guys, they are competing every single day.Ž Morgan appeared in 19 games for Bowling Green over the last two years, startiang 13 of them and com p letin g 279 of 538 passes for 3,342 yards and 25 touchdowns. Alexander completed 20 of 34 passes for the Panthers in 2016, and hasnt thrown a pass in a game since. Competition helps everyone show the best of their abilities,Ž Alexander said. So may the best man win.Ž The good news is that whichever one wins the quarterback job, hell be protected by a veteran offensive line. The bad news is that FIU will have at least 13 players in new starting spots, seven of those on the defensive side. But Davis said the offseason training program FIU put in place is going to help make a lot of transitions go smoothly. Lot of years of coaching, and I dont know that Ive seen a football team work any harder in preparation for the start of the season than this group of guys,Ž Davis said. Were blessed.Ž Heres some of what to know about FIU going into 2018:HELLO AGAINFor the first time since 2007, FIU will take the field against Miami „ its South Florida neighbor. The teams game in 2006 was marred by a brawl that saw 31 players suspended. They played the next year as well, without the fireworks. The Sept. 22 game will be emotionally charged, given how many players on both sides grew up playing with and against each other in the Miami area. And remember, Davis is a former Miami head coach who essentiall y p ut to g ether the Hurricane team that won the 2001 national title under Larry Coker.THE SCHEDULEFIU wont be racking up too many frequentflier miles this season. The Panthers play seven games at home, an eighth atŽ Miami and only leave the state of Florida four times. But theres not a lot of time to ease into things, with Indiana in Week 1 and the Conference USA opener at Old Dominion the following week.DISCIPLINEFIU wasnt the most disciplined team a year ago, averaging 6.5 penalties per game. Itll be a point of emphasis in 2018 since this team figures to have less of a margin for error than the experienced club from last season.RED ZONEIf FIU is going to repeat or improve on last years eight-win mark, continued excellence in the red zone will be critical. FIU led the nation in red zone efficiency last season. The Panthers were 40 for 41 on their trips inside the opposing 20, with 30 touchdowns and 10 field goals.MORE CANESDavis staff has three people who are very familar to the Miami football scene „ given their ties to the Hurricanes. Defensive line coach Kenny Holmes and running backs coach Tim Harris Jr. are both Miami graduates, and wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill is a former Miami assistant. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FLORIDA INTERNATIONALFIU looking for a QB, as Year 2 under Butch Davis looms By JOEDY McCREARYAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. „ Brandt Snedeker won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday for his ninth PGA Tour title, four days after opening with an 11-under 59. Snedeker closed with a 65 for a three-stroke victory in the regularseason finale, breaking a tie with C.T. Pan on the final hole with a birdie and Pans double bogey in the group ahead. Snedeker finished at 21-under 259 for his first win since 2016 and his second at the tournament, but first at Sedgefield Country Club. Pan shot a 66 to tie for second with Webb Simpson. Simpson matched his career-best with a 62. Snedeker opened the tournament with the 59 that made him the first tour player this year and just the 10th ever to break 60, then on the final day played 29 holes at 5 under to seal it. He was never in danger of missing the Fed Ex Cup playoffs for the first time in his career, but the victory gave him a huge jump on the points list. He climbed 50 spots to No. 30 on the list, after arriving at 80th „ which would have been his lowest finish. For a while, it looked like it might come down to a playoff between Pan and Snedeker, who were even at 20 under entering Pans final hole. But the 26-year-old from Taiwan ran into big trouble: Playing in the threesome immediately ahead of Snedeker, Pan shanked his tee shot out of bounds off a cart path down the right side of the fairway and needed four shots, including the penalty stroke, to reach the green on the par 4. With the victory seemingly inevitable at that point, Snedeker sank a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th to end it. Severe weather led organizers to suspend the third round with 30 players still on the course and bring everybody back to Sedgefield on Sunday morning, leaving Snedeker with 29 holes to play on the final day. He wrapped up that round with a one-stroke lead at 16 under before heading back onto the course. Since the tournament moved here in 2008, every third-round leader who was that far under par has gone on to win. The other subplot at Sedgefield is the lastminute push for the playoffs, which begin next week at The Northern Trust in New Jersey with the top 125 players qualifying. With every player who was between Nos. 122-127 missing the cut, there figured to be plenty of movement near the bubble. Sergio Garcia will miss the playoffs for the first time in his career after winding up 131st on the points list. Harris English and Nick Taylor played their way in, with Taylor saying he would kind of soak it in and realize that weve finally done it. Its really satisfying to finish it off,Ž he said. GOLF: WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIPSnedeker wins Wyndham Championship by 3 strokes By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ Sung Hyun Park blew one chance to jump back on top of the world Sunday. The South Korean star made sure it didnt happen again. After missing a short birdie putt on the final hole of regulation and leaving the door open for Lizette Salas, Park made a 15-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff to win the Indy Women in Tech Championship and reclaim the No. 1 spot. Im very honored to be ranked No. 1 and I hope to maintain that ranking for a long time,Ž she said through an interpreter after shooting a 3-under 69 for a fourround total of 23-under 265. I will try my best.Ž The 25-year-old South Korean held top spot for one week last November. If she continues playing like she did this weekend, Park could retain it for quite a while. She became the second three-time winner on tour this season and now won five LPGA Tour titles over the past two years „ including two majors. And aside from a rare mishit, which led to a double bogey Saturday, Park played the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course almost flawlessly. She opened with a 68 on Thursday, followed with a 63 on Friday and started in the next-tolast paring after settling for 66 on Saturday. After finishing, Park was whisked away to the Indianapolis Motor Speedways finish line, where she celebrated by kissing the bricks and taking the traditional sip of milk „ though she declined to take the milk bath as the events inaugural winner, Lexi Thompson, did last year. I didnt expect that tradition, but I was pleased to do it,Ž Park said. But she needed some help to reach the winners circle. Salas had a two-shot lead after a birdie on the par-4, 13th and seemed perfectly positioned to end her personal victory drought of more than four years „ even after Park cut the lead to one with a birdie at No. 14. Then the tournament that had been full of low scores and light on drama suddenly switched. Salas, who had missed only three fairways all week, hit drives into the rough on the last two holes of regulation. She dropped into a tie after making bogey at the par-4, 17th and got a reprieve when Parks birdie putt for the lead on No. 18 slid just to the right of the hole. Salas then hit her approach shot from the deep rough on No. 18 within five feet, giving her a chance to win. But after backing away from the putt, she also missed.
