Picnics Â“lled with the smell of grilled meat and sweet fruit salads are delicious reminders that we have a paid holiday off from work. Many people have the day off; retailers and restaurants will remain open to feed patrons looking for a good deal at a Labor Day Sale. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in four Americans will be working today. Labor Day isnÂt just for picnics and bargain basement retail. It is a day formed by laborers to celebrate, well, laborers. Labor Day is not just a timeline in the world of fashionistas. Back in 1882, the concept of Labor Day was brought to light; the origins are ambiguous and connected with two men with similar last names, Peter McGuire and Matthew Maguire. Both men claim to be responsible for the holiday. McGuire was the secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners. Maguire was a machinist and secretary for Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, New Jersey. According to the Department of Labor, there are records for both men to have been involved in the formation of the holiday. The Central Labor Union accepted the proposal and the event turned into a large picnic in New York City on Sept. 8. The idea caught on and spread like wildÂ“re throughout other towns and industries. Oregon passed the Â“rst Bill in the legislature on Feb. 21, 1887; four other states quickly followed suit. The working class had a holiday of their own. A day to sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Highlands County is no different. While some people will spend time with their friends and family, some will have to work. Take for instance our Â“rst responders. ÂWhile you gather to enjoy this Labor Day weekend, we want you to rest assured knowing your ofÂ“cers of the LPPD will be out making the streets as safe as possible,ÂŽ said Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler. ÂHave a fun and safe extended holiday.ÂŽ Janine Ganaban is an X-ray technician who will be working on Labor Day. She says holidays can be hectic and bizarre things can happen. ÂThis is usually the time when weird things happen,ÂŽ she said. ÂIf itÂs a perfect day outside, you miss not being able to spend it with family. If itÂs a crazy day, you feel better knowing you are helping someone elseÂs family by saving their loved ones and doing your best not to make it a sad memory.ÂŽ Of course, the grocers, restaurants, convenience stores and retail chains that are open, all have staff that are sacriÂ“cing family time in order to serve us. It is not just humans who are grateful for the sacriÂ“ce of others. Animals may not know about holidays but they still need care. The Humane Society of Highlands County Â„ the always-full shelter cannot take a break from caring for the animals that are in their safe keeping. President of the Board of Directors Judy Spiegel said she and a full staff LPPD PHOTOFireghter Billy Kingston. First responders will be working today.

For many people, Labor Day is a day for family and fun, but one in four Americans will be working today. Sebring to discuss water, sewer rate increaseBy MELISSA MAINStaff WriterSEBRING Â„ Slight increases in SebringÂs city water and sewer rates were discussed at the Sebring City Council budget workshop on Aug. 21. However, the average bill will likely see an increase of only $1 to $3 per month. The rate increases have not been Â“nalized; the Sebring City Council will listen to public input before making a decision. According to Sebring Utilities Director Bob Boggus, the base rate for water has not changed since 1996. ÂThe city has done a pretty good job of controlling costs. However, it got to a point where we couldnÂt offset the cost of chemicals and labor anymore. The cost of operating water and sewer went up. We now have to make a small increase. ÂIÂm glad we havenÂt had to raise rates in a long time,ÂŽ Boggus said. The proposed rate changes are 10 cents more per 1,000 gallons of water consumed and a 5 percent change in base rates. The average person consumes 2,000 gallons of water per month, including for drinking, showering and washing clothes. However, some people consume considerably more while others tend to conserve water. The proposed rate change of 10 cents per 1,000 gallons would translate into 20 cents more per person per month for water consumption. For example, the water consumption portion of the bill for a typical family of four who consumes 8,000 gallons of water per month and lives inside the city limits would increase from $18.40 to $19.20, less than a dollarÂs difference for that part of the bill. The total difference in this bill Â„ including service, the base rate for water, water consumption, sewer and utility tax Â„ for a typical family of four living inside the city limits is projected Memorial Drive trail to be completeCounty signs agreement for last 7,500 feetBy PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING Â„ Pedestrians and cyclists will soon have a pathway all the way from downtown Avon Park to Sebring Square shopping plaza on Sebring Parkway. County commissioners have approved an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for design, construction and inspection of an 8-foot-wide multi-use path along the west side of Memorial Drive Â„ the last leg between the existing path and the Parkway Â„ for $1.52 million in FDOT grant funds. It will add another mile and a half Â„ 7,500 linear feet Â„ to the existing path and connect the two cities with a multi-use hiking and biking path. Commissioner Jim Brooks asked Kenya Anderson, the countyÂs project manager, if it was part of the FDOT Â“ve-year plan. She said yes: It was part of the plan ever since the state agency started on the pathway more than Â“ve years ago. Commissioner Ron Handley asked if the project will needed to purchase any land for the path, and Anderson said no: ItÂs strictly design and construction. ÂItÂs absurd what itÂs costing,ÂŽ Handley said. Â(ItÂs) four times what it should cost.ÂŽ Anderson said a lot of that cost would include drainage improvements, which can be expensive. ÂWe can give DOT back the money,ÂŽ Brooks said. Ray Royce, chairman of the CitizenÂs Advisory Committee for the Heartland Regional Transportation Planning Organization, said he was glad to hear that this project, even at $202 per linear foot, is getting Â“nished. He said people and businesses on West Interlake Boulevard and CatÂ“sh Creek Road in Lake Placid have told him they would gladly put private funds toward such a project in their area. The project has had to mount several hurdles through the years. In April 2015, commissioners approved a revised construction agreement between the county and CSX Transportation to put two safety gates instead of one at the Memorial Drive sidewalk crossing over the railroad, just north of College Drive.TRAIL | 6A SEBRING | 6A WORK | 6A

What he did was design an amphibious vehicle that helped win the war in the PaciÂ“c. He became a hero through an act of nature and a chain of events. It was the 1928 Great Lake Okeechobee Hurricane in September that led to his amazing invention that the United States Marine Corps wanted and needed for the start of WWII. The timing was perfect. Donald RoeblingÂs father, John A. Roebling II, wealthy Â“nancier, entrepreneur, philanthropist and humanitarian was living with his wife at their 1,000-acre winter estate south of Lake Placid when the monster hurricane with 128 mileper-hour winds crashed into the eastern Florida coastline and rushed inward toward Lake Okeechobee, causing thousands to drown. John sent a team of his employees to assist in the rescue effort. Upon their return, he wanted to know all the details of what they saw of the rescue operation. They told how many victims drowned because rescuers could not get to them because of the miles of Â”ooded muddy, swampy water Â“lled with all kinds of debris. A vehicle or boat that could travel on land and through mud and also negotiate deep water would have helped to save hundreds of lives they said. John Roebling, being an astute businessman, thought about his eccentric but mechanically gifted and so far unproductive son. It would be a project for him to work on and possibly could be a proÂ“table activityÂ„a hurricane rescue vehicle. The challenge to his son was to build a reliable and commercially useful rescue vehicle that could navigate over land and water and be ready for the next hurricane. Donald accepted the challenge. John Roebling agreed to pay all of the design development and production costs. The father and son deal was sealed with a handshake. This would be the primary focus for the next eight years for Donald. He was 23 years old. By the time the amphibian vehicle was completed, the cost was $100,000. The amphibious rescue vehicle he christened ÂAlligatorÂŽ would be built at Clearwater, Florida where Donald lived. Periodically he would be seen testing the vehicle, in the Gulf of Mexico, Clearwater Bay and the lakes and swamps around Clearwater. The local newspaper was intrigued with what he was doing and began to take photos for the local newspaper. It soon got the attention of Life Magazine and in the autumn of 1937 came reporters and photographers to Clearwater to do a story. The national publicity from Life Magazine was a dream come true for Donald after seeing a two-page picture story titled, ÂRoeblingÂs Alligator for Florida Hurricane Rescues.ÂŽ It was the featured story for the Oct. 4, 1937 issue. With national publicity, the RoeblingÂs thought the article would produce willing customers for their ÂAlligator.ÂŽ They could not have imagined that their Â“rst customers would be the United States Marines. As the U.S. was preparing for war the USMC wanted and needed DonaldÂs Amphibian ASAP. When the USMC wanted to purchase the ÂAlligator,ÂŽ the patriotic Donald Roebling refused to accept any direct royalties or commissions from the government. By the end of WWII more than 15,000 ÂAlligatorsÂŽ were manufactured. The Â“rst vehicles were manufactured at Dunedin, Florida and also Lakeland, Florida and Riverside, California. The amphibian tractors are now called Assault Amphibian Vehicles, also Landing Vehicles, Tracked (no Wheels) or Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT). It was never used as a Florida Hurricane Rescue Vehicle. If it had not been for the 1928 Hurricane, Donald RoeblingÂs amphibian rescue vehicle would never have been invented and if DonaldÂs father, John A. Roebling hadnÂt been living here there would be no amphibian vehicle as the idea came from him. This amphibian vehicle was extremely important in winning the war in the PaciÂ“c.

Add to that another. What we Â“nd to be a noxious impulse: Cynicism that leads to Â“nger-pointing aimed at those attempting to provide a balanced scientiÂ“c explanation of what is known and what isnÂt known. The phenomenon was on display at a recent community meeting that drew more than 700 people to Englewood. Among those on a panel discussing the question were Richard Pierce, the associate vice president for research at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota. As Pierce was explaining that the toxic Karenia brevis algae occurred naturally in the environment, someone shouted, ÂHow can we trust you if Mote takes money from Mosaic? ItÂs dirty money.ÂŽ There were more jeers. According to a report from Sun staff writer Elaine Allen-Emrich, Pierce responded appropriately, slamming the Âfake newsÂŽ that leads some to question MoteÂs integrity. Pierce did acknowledge the fact that Mote did get phosphate industry donations for a 5K race and a Â“shery program. He also insisted, ÂWe are scientists. We report data which is important to understanding what is going on with the water.ÂŽ Plus, he acknowledged phosphate and nutrient pollution added to algae blooms. ÂThere are many, many sources of nutrients,ÂŽ he said. ÂMoteÂs point is that whether or not it enhances red tide, we should not have excess nutrients coming to our coast.ÂŽ That includes nutrient runoff from malfunctioning septic systems, from fertilizer and from discharges from algae-Â“lled Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico. Charlotte County has instituted a progressive program to do away with septic tanks in sensitive areas in Port Charlotte. More must be done Â… for example around here, on Manasota Key in Englewood and South Venice. The state needs to increase assistance for septic-to-sewer conversion. State government also must take steps as soon as possible to store and clean the water in Lake Okeechobee, so polluted water isnÂt released into the rivers. And then, we also need to launch a comprehensive study by FloridaÂs best scientiÂ“c institutions into the underlying causes of red tide blooms and the potential steps that can be taken to prevent or mitigate noxious blooms like the one weÂre experiencing now. There are plenty of theories Â”oating in cyberspace right now, but not enough solid scientiÂ“c information. We need much more. Without it, we canÂt really expect to address the problem properly. It is not simple. The natural world is not simple. As one person recently framed it, this is not a matter of simple math, but algebra. Not even algebra, perhaps, but calculus. Just to say: ItÂs complicated. But thatÂs what scientists do. They study and explain complex natural phenomena. Rather than rip Mote for perceived conÂ”icts of interest, we should insist they and other research facilities are empowered to do more. A lot more. That will take time and money, but we need to gear up now. LetÂs also consider paying for it with a fee on phosphate and fertilizer, both where it is produced and where it is purchased. That way weÂll know the money from an industry that may well be adding to the problem is paying to help mitigate it too. An editorial from the Port Charlotte Sun. Grandparents are such a blessingI was lucky when growing up. My mom was a stay-at-home mom for the most part. She would get a job when it was necessary to help with bills, but we were lucky to have her at home doing the heavy lifting of being a domestic engineer. When you grow up on a farm, that really takes on a new deÂ“nition. I have worked since before I graduated high school and am the mother of two wonderful children. They are young adults now. Most of their childhood was growing up in a single-parent home, and that single parent put in some ridiculous hours as a newspaper editor and publisher. Long days, many times working six, if not seven days a week. Did they miss out on much? IÂd like to think not, but IÂd also be lying. I know I missed out on a lot. I am very blessed that through it all we remain very close. I truly believe we have a special bond, probably because of all that weÂve been through together. My children have also been very blessed with grandparents who loved them and welcomed them into their homes after school so that I didnÂt have to put them in daycare, or Â“nd a babysitter. I would either pick them up from school and take them to one of their grandparents, or if they were staying with my parents, they would sometimes ride the bus there. I was lucky again in that the bus driver to my parents house was a friend of mine and I trusted her with my children. I grew up near grandparents as well, but since my mom was mostly at the house, I didnÂt spend a whole lot of time with them unless it was for a visit. I was very blessed to have had my great-grandmother also live nearby when we lived in Illinois. She is the one I hope to model myself after as I get older. Such a big, big heart and always ready for the biggest hug. My cousins, aunt and uncle talked a lot about her in May when I went home for a little family gathering. She was a treasure to each of us. Sunday, Sept. 9 is Grandparents Day. Provision Living looked at Google trends to see which state spoils its grandmas and grandpas the most. My home state of Illinois is ranked eighth; Florida is ranked 28th in the nation. Minnesota is ranked Â“rst, Ohio is ranked second and Texas is ranked third. Georgia and Michigan round out the top Â“ve. The methodology they used in this poll was how many times keywords were used in a Google search, and the rankings were based on search volume per capita. IÂll let you draw your own conclusion to how accurate the poll might be. The real message to this letter is make sure you to take time to connect with your grandparents, regardless of how far away they are. Email seems to have taken the place of a handwritten letter. I myself donÂt write a lot of letters anymore. My career as a journalist has pretty much ruined my penmanship. But, I do try to follow in my motherÂs footsteps and mail a card out frequently with a handwritten note to let my loved ones know IÂm thinking of them. And if youÂre not much into writing a letter, an email or sending a card, pick up the phone. IÂm sure theyÂd love to hear your voice. As I grew older, and especially when we moved to Florida, I didnÂt get to see my maternal grandparents or my great-grandmother often. My paternal grandparents lived here, so I would see them only when I could Â“t them into my teenage/young adult social calendar. TheyÂve all been gone for several years now, but IÂd give anything to walk into my Grandma HickoxÂs house and smell the aromas drifting from the kitchen or taste her delicious chicken and homemade noodles. As much as I despise cigarettes and the stinky smoke that comes from them, IÂd also give anything to see my Grandpa Daniel with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. Oh yes, the state that ranked 50th in Provision LivingÂs study was Maine. If youÂre lucky enough to still have your grandparents living today, pick up the phone and call them. DonÂt wait until Sunday. Happy Grandparents Day to all of the grandparents in the world. Romona Washington is executive editor of the Highlands News-Sun.

IÂm not sure why there is a question about scientiÂ“c facts but if everyone thought the same, ice cream would come in only one Â”avor. Charles Darwin, the naturalist and geologist, is best known for his contributions to science in the Â“eld of evolution. His premise was that life descended from common ancestors. He believed that survival of species stemmed from the process of natural selection. Some consider Darwin the patron of atheism as his ideas have no basis in commonly held religious beliefs concerning the creation of life forms. In fact, Darwin was brought up in a religious environment having been baptised in 1809 and regularly attended Unitarian chapel with his mother. He later attended ChristÂs College. Mr. Darwin also studied at University of Edinburgh Medical School and later achieved Cambridge Master of Arts. He is buried at Westminster Abbey, which hardly beÂ“ts an atheist. Beliefs run deep and itÂs not my task to convert thinking in favor of science vs religion, but rather to present what I see as the logical means by which life has evolved over time. You donÂt have to look much past your front door to see evidence of evolution. Most of the plant and animal life we see today did not spontaneously appear in its present form. Lifeforms adapt over time according to their environment and the changes it may undergo. Renowned scientists agree that evolution brought us many plants and animals that evolved from something else and which may have been inÂ”uenced by environmental conditions. From these changes, new species would emerge. The recent sequencing of the gorilla, chimpanzee and bonobo genomes conÂ“rms that supposition and provides a clearer view of how we are connected: chimps and bonobos share approximately 99 percent of our DNA, with gorillas trailing at 98 percent. I donÂt believe that is by chance. These Â“ndings donÂt tell us that humans descended from apes but more that we descended from a common ancestor. The domestic house cat evolved from the Middle Eastern wildcat about 12,000 years ago. Of all the felines, big cats were the Â“rst to split off into their own group from the common ancestor, so they are GUEST COLUMNWarren Pender EVOLUTION | 6A

Previously, the oldest fossil evidence came from Africa which indicated big cats date back 3.8million years old. DNA comparisons of ancient fossils with modern bones suggest Asian origins dating back at least 6million years. Dogs shared a common ancestor with the wolf which roamed the tundra some 35,000 years ago. The various species of animals did not always exist. New species emerged both from environmental necessity and from cross-breeding. The polar bear and penguins evolved to survive in extreme cold where other species could not. Penguins do not have feathers as other birds, but rather, fur which helps them adapt to colder conditions. The original ancestors of todayÂs alligators and crocodiles appeared about 245million years ago. The Crocodilians appeared about 80million years ago. The alligators and crocodiles we know today are considered the closest modern link to the dinosaurs which have been extinct for 66million years. These are examples of common life forms with which we are readily familiar. The evolution of humans is far more recent Â„ 1.8 to 1.3million years ago. Homo erectus were the Â“rst of the hominins to emigrate from Africa. This species spread through Africa, Asia, and Europe. Part of this species remained in Africa and evolved into Homo sapiens. Contrary to some beliefs, humans did not coexist with dinosaurs. Some might argue whether dinosaurs existed at all but extensive worldwide fossil discoveries have proven otherwise. Recent Â“nds have uncovered insects encased in amber that date backmillions of years ago. Some examples of such recent discoveries include: 99 Million Year-Old Ants. Sphecomyrmodes robustus, a 99million year old fossil ant Stinging Scorpions Meat-Eating Plants Fluffy Dinosaur Feathers The Lizards of the Caribbean Studies of rock layers and radiometric dating places the age of the earth at about 4.5billion years old. Much has evolved during this time and more will follow. As our planet and environments change, so will evolution remain an ongoing process. Newer geological and archaeological discoveries provide scientists with greater insight as to the history of life on Earth. Warren Pender is a Sebring resident.

The average monthly bill for this typical 4-person family is currently $51.34 per month, but if the proposed changes are made, this bill would be $53.79 A family of four living outside the city limits and consuming 8,000 gallons per month would be projected to see an increase of $2.77 in the monthly bill. For a family consuming 8,000 gallons of water and living outside the city limits and using only city water, but no sewer, the monthly bill is projected to increase by $1.39. These slight increases in monthly bills will enable the water and sewer department to make upgrades to the system as needed. In additional, it will provide revenue for replacing water meters when required.SEBRINGFROM PAGE 1AThe county had deposited $72,253 with CSX as part of the original April 2012 construction agreement and added another $67,778 on Oct. 1, 2013, for extra costs to align the sidewalk and install pedestrian gates in the railroad right-of-way. However, CSX then made a request to realign the sidewalk and install a second pedestrian gate: Another $11,991 cost increase, which commissioners approved. Total construction costs got revised to $152,022, which when combined with the countyÂs $22,500 engineering costs already spent on the project, meant the countyÂs total bill would be $174,522. Then Avon Park city manager Julian Deleon told commissioners he wanted to see more funds put toward projects in and around the city.

Luke Oxner (No. 77 White Racing), driving for the two-car White Racing team, wisely navigated through two incidents in Turn One to take his Â“ rst Mazda MX-5 Cup win ahead of leading rookie racer Selin Rollan, who Â“ nished second as Robert Stout crossed the Â“ nish line in third. Starting from second, Oxner was initially concerned that he had a poor start that would rob him of his shot at a podium Â“ nish. As it turns out, it may have put him in exactly the right spot to avoid a multi-car collision in Turn One. ÂWell right off the green Â” ag, it was just so frustrating because I lost four spots right at the start,ÂŽ Oxner said. ÂThen there was just some kind of chaos going on, people getting antsy and I managed to dodge them all.ÂŽ The opening-lap incident eliminated several cars from the race, including Bryan Ortiz (No. 4 Slipstream Performance) winner of the previous Mazda MX-5 Cup round at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Ortiz was forced to pit for repairs and rejoined a lap down. After an extensive cleanup, green Â” ag racing resumed with 32 minutes left on the clock. Oxner restarted in Â“ fth. Ahead of him, Nathaniel Sparks (No. 8 Sick Sideways Racing) led Joey Bickers (No. 34 McCumbee McAleer Racing) into Turn One. The Â“ eld made it through the restart unscathed, but on the following lap, Bickers made heavy contact with Sparks at Turn One, stranding them both on the race track and bringing out a second full-course yellow. Oxner was now up MAZDA MOTORSPORTS PHOTOSick Sideways driver Selin Rollan. Hamilton takes win at MonzaSpecial To Highlands News-SunFerrari were the overwhelming favorites for victory in front of their loyal fans at Monza as they locked out the front row in qualifying. But Lewis Hamilton had other ideas, taking advantage of a spin from Sebastian Vettel after a brilliant pass on his title rival, before hunting down Kimi Raikkonen to take a thrilling victory in a thrilling Italian Grand Prix on Sunday. On Saturday, Vettel said Raikkonen would be allowed to win the Italian Grand Prix from pole position and for much of the race, it looked like that would be the case. The FinnÂs chances were boosted when Vettel defended too hard from Hamilton into the second chicane on Lap 1. Hamilton was on the outside and Vettel opted to try and hang on alongside. The result was contact, with VettelÂs Ferrari spun round to drop him to the back of the Â“ eld. Hamilton, meanwhile, was unscathed and set about chasing down Raikkonen. Raikkonen pitted Â“ rst, with Hamilton going eight laps longer. With fresher tires, and the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas, who had yet to stop, backing Raikkonen up at the front, Hamilton inched closer. Bottas then pitted, giving Raikkonen clear air, but his tires were in trouble. Hamilton bided his time and then pounced to snatch the lead with eight laps to go, before pulling away to take the victory. It was MercedesÂ Â“ fth successive win at Monza with Hamilton the Â“ rst driver to win from below the front row since Rubens Barrichello from Â“ fth in 2009. Raikkonen nursed his car home to second, clinching his 100th podium, with Verstappen crossing the line third before a Â“ ve-second time penalty dropped him behind Bottas and Vettel in the Â“ nal classiÂ“ cation. Vettel leaves Monza 30 points behind championship leader Hamilton on a weekend where he would have expected to slice the deÂ“ cit to at least 10. However, there are still seven races and a maximum of 175 points left on the table. Raikkonen bolted across the track to defend the lead at the start, with Vettel tucking into his tow and then attempting a pass around the outside into the Â“ rst chicane before bailing out. On the approach to the Roggia chicane, Hamilton picked up a slipstream from Vettel and dived to the outside. Vettel was baulked by Raikkonen, allowing Hamilton to move alongside the Ferrari. The Mercedes driver got his nose in front as they entered the corner, but Vettel stayed side by side with the silver car. They touched, with Vettel spinning and AMG-PETRONAS PHOTOSLewis Hamilton races in the Italian Grand Prix at Monaco. Lewis Hamilton. Spring Lake golf actionBy JIM FOOTESpecial to Highlands News-SunOn August 28th, the Spring Lake MenÂs League played a 4 Man Team Â„ Points game on Cougar Trail golf course. Four balanced teams had team handicaps of 50 to 52 strokes. Points were assigned on each hole based on the ModiÂ“ ed Stableford system where par Â„ after handicap Â„ equals two points and birdies are equal to four points, etc. In other words, if you par a hole and also get a stroke of handicap (a net birdie), you receive four points for that hole. Relative newcomer Bill Burress has a handicap on the Cougar course that has not been seen at Spring Lake Golf Resort in recent memory: a plus 1 or a negative handicap. He has to beat par on Cougar every time just to make his average. Buress Â„ with 42 points Â„ was captain of the Â“ rst place team that came in with 152 total points. He was ably assisted by Larry Carlson Â„ also with 42 points, Bob Rider with 36 points and Ed GrifÂ“ th with 32 points. Second place Â„ at 149 points Â„ went to Fred Brune, Bart Bartholomy, Leon Van and Gary Wessel, with Brune scoring a team high 45 points. Brune is locally known for FredÂs Bar down at NiebertÂs Fish Camp on Arbuckle Creek, while Van is also known as our local handicap expert; keeps separate handicaps for each course to make sure snowbirds cannot take advantage of us locals. Mr. Bartholomy is also famous for something...I forget...probably for complaining about his handicap. Third place Â„ with 146 points Â„ went to Edd Vowels, Will David, Don Cunning and Big John Crawford; Crawford holding up his end with 42 points. All in all, we beat the rain again for another good day of golf at Spring Lake!Final Heartland Golf Championship OÂWard captures Indy Lights titleFormer Sebring class winner to race in Indy 500 next yearSpecial To Highlands News-SunPORTLAND, Oregon Â… Patricio OÂWard captured the 2018 Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires championship by winning SaturdayÂs race at Portland International Raceway. The 19-year-old had to overcome a disastrous qualifying bout for the second race earlier in the morning, leaving his No. 27 Andretti Autosport Mazda/Dallara IL-15 with damage. With his crew making quick work of the repairs, he managed to make the grid and take his spot on pole for the Â“ rst race. OÂWard led teammate and title rival Colton Herta (No. 98 Andretti-Steinbrenner Racing) off the drop of the green Â” ag. Herta attempted a diving move entering Turn 1 on Lap 4, locking up his tires to no avail in a plume of smoke. However, the very same move proved successful the next lap as Herta pushed to the lead. Clinging in HertaÂs shadow, OÂWard made his move 10 laps later entering Turn 1. Sideby-side, the duoÂs rear wheels made slight contact as OÂWard took back the lead. By result of the contact, Herta drifted off course and over the rumble strips, nearly falling into the clutches of third-place Victor Franzoni (No. 23 Juncos Racing). Ultimately, OÂWard led 26 of 35 laps and Â“ nish 1.6867 seconds ahead of Herta to claim his eighth victory of the season. ÂItÂs been a hard-fought year, and IÂm glad I can Â“ nally relax,ÂŽ OÂWard said. ÂI am really excited for tomorrow because I am starting from the back. So I want to do a good race and I think I can. Hopefully, it is. I know I have the car. ItÂs just been a year of a dream. WeÂve had so many wins. WeÂve had so many poles. The car has been an absolute bullet everywhere and I couldnÂt thank Andretti enough for giving me such a warm welcome to the team.ÂŽ The champion of the top rung of the Mazda Road to Indy, OÂWard also receives a $1 million scholarship to run INDYCAR PHOTOPato ÂO Ward captured the Indy Lights championship in Portland, Oregon on Saturday.MAZDA | 8A GOLF | 8A INDY | 8A HAMILTON | 8A

Oxner took the lead with 12 minutes left in the race and defended all the way to the end, taking home his Â“rst MX-5 Cup victory and marking a great day for the White Racing effort. ÂI was checking my mirror at the end for sure,ÂŽ Oxner said of RollanÂs race-long pursuit.

Meanwhile, the Safety Car was called into action, with debris on the start-Â“nish straight after Brendon Hartley found his Toro Rosso sandwiched between Stoffel VandoorneÂs McLaren and SauberÂs Marcus Ericsson at the start. The contact broke the New ZealanderÂs front-right suspension, forcing him out immediately. At the restart on Lap 4, Hamilton got a lovely tow down the main straight and glided by Raikkonen to take the lead before the Â“rst chicane. But the Finn regrouped and retook the lead around the outside into the Roggia chicane Â„ much to the delight of the fans who packed out Monza. However, Hamilton didnÂt let the Ferrari driver scamper away, the Briton keeping the pressure on until the Scuderia called Raikkonen in to pit at the end of lap 20. It was a super slick stop and he was sent back out on a set of supersofts and into clear air. Mercedes opted not to respond, with Hamilton staying out for another eight laps before pitting. On the face of it, that looked to be the wrong call, as he rejoined 5.2 seconds behind Raikkonen. But Raikkonen was baulked by Bottas, who had inherited the lead by virtue of not having pitted. Hamilton set about reeling Raikkonen in, slicing at least a second per lap out of the gap until he was right on the FinnÂs gearbox with 20 laps to go. Mercedes told Hamilton that Âthis race will be won on lost on tires, you need to look after yours. It looks like Kimi is killing his.ÂŽ They were referring to a blister that had appeared on RaikkonenÂs rears, with the Finn struggling with vibrations. Bottas eventually pitted at the end of lap 36, leaving Raikkonen and Hamilton to battle for the lead. The Finn rejoined in fourth, just 3.2 seconds behind Verstappen but with tires that were 10 laps fresher and began the chase for the Â“nal podium position. Back up front, Hamilton hustled Raikkonen, with the Finn increasingly struggling with his tires. Eventually, he could hold on no more, with Hamilton diving around the outside of the Â“rst chicane to take the lead on Lap 45, to the disappointment of the Ferrari fan-packed grandstands. Ferrari then told Raikkonen to take care of his tires and Âbring the car home,ÂŽ with the Finn fading and allowing Hamilton to move well clear. Further back, Verstappen and Bottas made contact at Turn 1, with Verstappen given a Â“ve-second time penalty for the incident.HAMILTONFROM PAGE 7A HIGHLIGHT: At the restart on Lap 4, Hamilton got a lovely tow down the main straight and glided by Raikkonen to take the lead before the rst chicane.

Highlands Health CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BMonday, September 3, 2018 Symptoms of Celiac disease2.5 million Americans may be currently undiagnosed and at-risk for long-term health complicationsBy Metro Creative ConnectionsGluten-free diets have garnered substantial attention over the last decade-plus. Perhaps nowhere is the rise of gluten-free diets more evident than at local grocery stores, many of which now devote entire sections to gluten-free products. Some may swear by gluten-free foods, but medical experts note that gluten-free diets are only necessary and beneÂ“ cial to people with Celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. The Celiac Disease Foundation notes that the disease affects roughly one in 100 people across the globe and even estimates that 2.5 million Americans are currently undiagnosed and at-risk for long-term health complications. The CDF notes that people are not helpless against Celiac disease. In fact, the CDF, which disseminates information through a free mailing list, recommends men and women stay informed about the disease, seek immediate care if they suspect they have the disease and learn the symptoms of the disease, COURTESY GRAPHIC/ MCCCeliac disease can produce uncomfortable symptoms. But the good news is that a gluten-free diet can e ectively resolve symptoms and prevent future complications4 amazing health benefits of prunesBy SUZY COHENDear PharmacistAlmost everyone knows what prunes are for, they help you get going! Your parents probably kept them in the cabinet, and offered them to you when you were a kid. Prunes are actually just dried plums, and theyÂre fruits of the tree species Prunus domestica, hence the name. Speaking of names, which would you rather eat? Prunes which help with bowel function, or Âdried plums?ÂŽ Honestly, which sound more palatable?! For purely marketing reasons, the name was changed which offer mass appeal. What they couldnÂt change was how shriveled up and sticky these guys are when you eat them! But donÂt let that hinder you because prunes have been scientiÂ“ cally proven to help soften stools and induce a laxative type effect due to their sorbitol content. Prune juice will not work because the actual fruit provides the Â“ ber, juice does not. Do prunes have other medicinal beneÂ“ ts? Yes, surprisingly important ones too! Bones Prunes have been shown in multiple studies to prevent, and even reverse, bone loss in post-menopausal women. TheyÂre good for osteoporosis! Prunes work by suppressing the rate of bone turnover. In fact, prominent researchers wrote an article in the British Journal of Nutrition and after studying the fruits, they have come to conclusion that prunes are Âthe most effective fruit in both preventing and reversing bone loss.ÂŽ Blood vessels A placebo-controlled trial out of Pakistan showed that eating just one serving of prunes each day could signiÂ“ cantly lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients. Those who ate the prunes had a reduction in both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure (top and bottom numbers). Brain Eating prunes might preserve your brain. In an animal model study, feeding rodents an extract of plums helped to maintain their cognitive function. Not only was their memory recall improved, there was less formation of Beta amyloid plaques, which are the same damaging protein found in patients with AlzheimerÂs disease. Even if everything is Âmoving right alongÂ in your life, consider adding prunes to your diet if only to help you with blood pressure regulation, bone health and memory. ItÂs mind-blowing to think such a simple thing could help so much. As a pharmacist, I see no risk to this, and only beneÂ“ t. But of course, donÂt eat too many prunes or youÂll get diarrhea! If youÂre constipation is due to opiate usage (such as oxycodone or hydrocodone) then this would require an OTC medication such as MiraLAX. The prunes are Â“ ne, but will not be enough! If your constipation is secondary to hypothyroidism, prunes will not be enough. You will need thyroid medication. I have written about this extensively at my website. Prunes would be fantastic on a salad! Or just eat them whole. Recipes exist everywhere including my website where I also have a longer version of this article posted. If you simply canÂt stand prunes, then plums are a great alternative! Plums contain the same anthocyanins that prunes do, and they are even juicier!

DEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen Florida health insurers want lowest Obamacare premiums everAssociated PressFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Â„ Florida insurers selling health insurance under the Affordable Care Act requested the lowest premium hikes since the lawÂs inception, despite numerous obstacles from the Trump administration and major rate increases last year. The stateÂs largest insurer, Florida Blue, which is offering plans in all 67 counties and is the sole provider in several mostly rural counties, requested a meager increase of less than half a percent. The nine insurers offering so-called Obamacare plans in the Sunshine State next year requested to raise their rates by an average of about 5 percent, according to Â“ gures released Tuesday by FloridaÂs OfÂ“ ce of Insurance Regulation. That compares to an average increase of 45 percent last year. Premiums are signiÂ“ cant as critics often point to them as a sign that the law isnÂt working and is on the verge of collapse. The Â“ gures also come one year after several major insurers around the country pulled out of the market amid dismal proÂ“ ts and growing uncertainty under the Trump administration. But enrollment has stabilized nationally at about 10 million people and after two years of stiff premium hikes, many insurers are making money again. There seems to be little risk of insurers Â” eeing HealthCare.gov in 2019 as some did in the past. Florida once again led enrollment in the federal exchange, with 1.7 million consumers selecting a plan last season, according to the federal government. The vast majority received funds to help pay for their insurance. Experts say several other states including North Carolina are also reporting shockingly low rate hikes for 2019. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois also requested lower rates. ÂThe previous year insurers had these huge rate increases and ... they probably overpriced last year because they were worried the (Trump administration) wasnÂt going to force the individual mandate,ÂŽ said John Holahan, an economist with the Urban Institute. ÂThey Â“ gured a lot of people werenÂt going to sign up for coverage ... and it really didnÂt happen because enrollment didnÂt fall off that badly.ÂŽ So in hopes of staying competitive when enrollment begins in November, Florida and insurers in several other states had meager increases and even decreases in some cases. A Florida Blue spokesman, Paul Kluding, said the insurer lowered rates from its original proposal earlier this year Âgiven our dedication to providing affordable health care for all Floridians.ÂŽ Trump and congressional Republicans have been unable to deliver on their promise to Ârepeal and replaceÂŽ the 2010 health care law. But Trump, who has repeatedly branded the program a ÂdisasterÂŽ, has steadily cut funding for navigators who counsel people about various plans and help them enroll. Federal health ofÂ“ cials also slashed money for open-enrollment advertising around the country by 90 percent overall, calling it wasteful spending and the budget for TV ads went from $26.6 million in the Obama administrationÂs Â“ nal year to zero under Trump. Trump and Congress also repealed the tax penalty for people going uninsured, starting next year, which could entice some healthy people to go without coverage.

B2 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 3, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Yoga for life Â„ calm the brain with dolphin poseBy Nancy DaleYOGA FOR LIFECircumstances offer an opportunity to grow in calmness amidst Âthe storm.ÂŽ ÂDolphin PoseÂŽ is a posture that provides momentum to navigate our way out of tension into calmness. When we learn how to Âswim with the Dolphins,ÂŽ we can Â“ nd relief and serenity as we quiet the mind in a rhythmic Â” ow into this posture. The beneÂ“ t of the lengthening ÂDolphin PoseÂŽ stretches out the tension in the shoulders, hamstrings, calves and the arches of the feet. The side effects of repeating the Â” ow of this pose also will break up a tension headache, back pain, fatigue, and improve sleep. If you have been told your ÂsciaticaÂŽ nerve that runs from the hip down through the leg limits movement and cramps, then ÂDolphin Pose,ÂŽ repeated in a slow precise Â” ow (building up to 10, holding each posture for 5 to 10 seconds before slipping into the next) is a challenging sequence to add to your daily Yoga practice. With ÂDolphin PoseÂŽ you can learn to build up stamina in a Â” owing sequence, slowly adding repetitions and not compromising the correct form. Start with Downward Dog on the Â” oor, tightening the abs with a straight long back and move into ÂPlank PoseÂŽ with clasped hands in a ÂV,ÂŽ extended in front of the arms. Hold legs tightly with neck lifted as you pull slowly forward of the hands and hold for 5 to 10 seconds. You can also prepare for ÂDolphinÂŽ by practicing this method: 1. From ÂMountain PoseÂŽ (a tall lengthened standing pose with feet shoulder width apart and straight back) forward, bend from the ÂhingesÂŽ at the top of the thigh, bringing the arms down the front of the body, legs straight, looking forward with raised neck. Use this to warm up and lengthen legs and the breath. 2. You are ready to initiate ÂDolphin pose.ÂŽLetÂs Practice ÂDolphinÂŽLie down full body on your stomach, as if you were going into ÂDownward Dog.ÂŽ Clasp the hands in a ÂVÂŽ shape under the chest, toes lifted, legs straight and move the upper body forward of the clasped hands. Hold the posture for at least 3 seconds and pull back into ÂDownward Dog,ÂŽ then slowly repeat ÂDolphinÂŽ by pulling the entire body forward for 5 consecutive times. This pose requires stamina so have conÂ“ dence that with repeated practice you will lengthen the hold of and repetitions using the supporting breath. Dolphin is a great pose to focus concentration and improve posture. You can do it!

My family has been in the hearing Â“ eld for 50 years and personally I have been helping patients to hear better for over 38 years ... and the new technology just keeps getting better. The hearing industry has just celebrated another milestone. Starkey Hearing Technologies, the leader in hearing innovation, has announced its latest development. On Monday, Aug. 27, they announced the release of the worldÂs Â“ rst SMART hearing instrument. What does that mean? It means a hearing instrument that is not just a hearing instrument any longer. StarkeyÂs Livio AI (AI stands for artiÂ“ cial intelligence) is a multi-purpose health-monitoring device. We now have a hearing instrument that is like a Fitbit for the ear. The instrument has artiÂ“ cial intelligence and sensors. Thanks to these inertial sensors, they can detect movement, activity and gestures. Users can view and track Â“ tness activities with the Thrive Hearing Control App. The speed of the device at processing speech is unparalleled, providing the most natural sounding device ever produced. The hearing instruments will provide information on falls. Imagine, if you fall, the hearing instruments will be able to send a message to someone that you have designated and give a location of where you are. This is life saving. How awesome is that! Now your hearing instrument can eliminate the need to wear something around your neck for monitoring ... just let your hearing aid that you are already wearing do the job automatically. This is a game changer in hearing health care. Not only can it track your physical activities, but it also helps you stay on top of your mental and cognitive health. How? Well, as you know from reading my articles, it is necessary to stay active and social to maintain a good mental state. Being active keeps our cognitive abilities sharp and healthy. How do you know if you are doing enough? The Livio AI: the worldÂs Â“ rst Healthable Hearing Technology with Sensors and ArtiÂ“ cial Intelligence has the ability to track movement and gestures and calculates them to provide a point system and a daily goal letting you know that you are reaching your abilities and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that is good for your hearing, brain, and your health. The instruments are Bluetooth, connecting to your smart phones and also wireless compatibility to a variety of new accessories.

Henderson has a Master of Science in Nursing from Kaplan University in Chicago; a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain College of Nursing in St. Louis, Missouri; and an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing & Associate of Arts in Health Science from South Florida State College in Avon Park. Should motorcyclists worry about their hearing?Special to Highlands News-SunThereÂs a lot you risk when you hop on your motorcycle for a joyride. This is why you wear a helmet, to protect your head, as well as jeans and a long-sleeved jacket, to protect your skin. What many of us fail to think about, however, is protecting our ears. The majority of motorcycle engines produce sounds around 100 decibels. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), exposure to sounds exceeding 100 dB for more than 15 minutes can cause permanent hearing damage. But research shows that wind noise is actually the main cause of noise induced hearing loss for motorcyclists. In fact, driving at highway speeds causes wind noise as loud as a chainsaw, which will certainly cause permanent damage over time. Many believe that by wearing a full, snug-Â“tting helmet, their ears are protected. But the reality is, helmets do not do much to block noise; studies indicate they only reduce noise by about three to Â“ve decibels. Even an inexpensive set of earplugs can reduce noise exposure by about 35 decibels, enough to protect your ears all day long from dangerous sound levels. However, many prefer custom molded plugs, which offer a tighter seal and increased comfort.

Getting to the heart of AmericaÂs diabetes crisisBy KEN THORPEGuest ColumnistAbout 30 million Americans have diabetes, and an estimated 1.5 million more are diagnosed each year. More than 25 percent of seniors have diabetes, and minority populations are at the greatest risk of developing this disease. African Americans, for instance, have a 77 percent higher risk of developing diabetes compared to White Americans. Hispanic Americans have a 66 percent higher risk. Most meticulously monitor their blood sugar, as they know that failing to keep diabetes in check can damage the kidneys, eyes, and feet. But even so, about 50,000 Americans start dialysis each year because of diabetes-induced kidney failure. More than three million Americans with diabetes experience partial vision loss. And over 70,000 undergo limb amputations due to diabetic ulcers. The disease also threatens the heart. People living with diabetes are more than twice as likely to develop a heart problem Â„ and up to four times as likely to die from cardiovascular disease. Yet half of people living with diabetes arenÂt aware of this risk. That needs to change. Educating doctors and patients about the connection between diabetes and heart disease could save millions of lives and billions of dollars. Type 2 diabetes changes how the body processes glucose Â„ a sugar found in foods. This results in chronically high levels of blood sugar, which can lead to life-threatening health problems. People with type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to be hospitalized because of heart problems. And an estimated 68 percent of people with diabetes age 65 or older lose their lives to heart disease. People with diabetes also often develop high levels of bad cholesterol, low levels of good cholesterol, and high triglycerides Â„ a situation that is often associated with coronary heart disease. And many struggling with diabetes are also obese, which puts the heart at greater risk. The combination of diabetes and cardiovascular disease is a major driver of healthcare spending. Diabetes alone costs our nation $245 billion a year in medical spending and lost productivity. Heart complications account for a quarter of the medical costs. Raising awareness of this diabetes-heart connection can motivate change that America needs to chip away at the increasing burden of chronic disease. Medical professionals play a crucial role in educating people about the diabetes-heart connection, recommending changes needed to manage diabetes, protect the heart, and following progress. People with diabetes and their families play a role, too Â„ supporting healthier, active lifestyles, tracking and managing glucose levels, asking their healthcare providers about diabetes and heart health, and following through on treatment recommendations. Policymakers can also help. State and federal funds are used to educate the public about diabetes and heart disease. Making sure that efforts to address diabetes or cardiovascular disease effectively raise awareness of the linkage between them would spark impactful action. Getting to the heart of AmericaÂs diabetes crisis is long overdue. ItÂs time to make the diabetes-heart connection and save millions of lives and dollars in the process. Kenneth E. Thorpe is a professor of health policy at Emory University and chairman of the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease.Pain management during colonoscopyMayo Clinic News Network (TNS)Dear Mayo Clinic: I just turned 50, and my health care provider recommends that I get a colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer. I want to have the test done, but as a recovering addict, I donÂt want pain medication. Is this possible, or would the pain be too much? What are my other options? A: For people in your situation, there are several alternatives to choose from when considering a colonoscopy. In addition to the option of forgoing pain medication completely, you could have the procedure with nonnarcotic medication, or you may be able to opt for a noninvasive colorectal cancer screening test instead of a colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the colon and rectum. This test often is recommended as a screening exam for colon cancer, beginning at age 50, for people who have no colon cancer risk factors other than age. During a colonoscopy, a long, Â”exible tube, called a colonoscope, is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube enables your health care provider to view the inside of the entire colon. Although sedatives and pain medications may be used to minimize discomfort during a colonoscopy, it is possible to have a colonoscopy without pain medication or sedatives. That is often the way a colonoscopy is performed outside the U.S. When patients want to try colonoscopy without pain medication or sedation, they usually have the option for an IV line to be placed before the procedure starts. That way, the care team can give medication promptly through the IV if the procedure becomes intolerable. The medication you receive in that case could be one that doesnÂt contain a narcotic. This would avoid your addiction concerns. It is also possible to have a colonoscopy performed under monitored anesthesia care. In that setting, a nurse anesthetist administers only sedation medication during the procedure. Here, too, you can request that the medication you receive not include a narcotic. Another option would be a noninvasive colorectal cancer screening test, such as the stool DNA test (Cologuard). That test looks for abnormal DNA associated with colon cancer or colon polyps. The test also detects hidden blood in the stool, which can indicate the presence of cancer. This test is intended for colon cancer screening in people who donÂt have symptoms. ItÂs not a viable option if a colonoscopy is being ordered to evaluate symptoms or for people who have a strong family history of colon cancer, particularly a history that suggests a hereditary pattern. It also should be noted that if the stool DNA test is positive, a colonoscopy would be required to check for polyps or colon cancer. An additional noninvasive option is a virtual colonoscopy, sometimes called a screening CT colonography. Unlike a traditional colonoscopy, a virtual colonoscopy uses a CT scan instead of a colonoscope to produce images of your abdominal organs. The images are combined and digitally manipulated to provide a detailed view of the inside of the colon and rectum. Sedation and pain medications arenÂt necessary for this test. Be aware, though, that not all health insurance providers pay for virtual colonoscopy for colon cancer screening. Check with your insurance provider before having this procedure to Â“nd out if itÂs covered. In addition to the tests discussed here, you may have other choices for colon cancer screening, too, depending on your situation. Talk to your health care provider about your options.

B8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 3, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com What is gluten? And why some people should avoid itMany foods and beverages contain glutenMetro Creative ConnectionsGluten-free foods are now more widely available than ever before, but unless they adhere to gluten-free diets, consumers may not know just what gluten is and why some people need to avoid it. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, gluten is the general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and the hybrid grain triticale, which is produced by crossing wheat and rye. Many foods and beverages, including breads, soups, beer, and cereals, contain gluten. However, the CDF notes that many foods also are naturally gluten-free. WhatÂs more, many naturally gluten-free foods are very nutritious. These foods include fruits, vegetables, Â“sh and seafood, dairy, beans, legumes, and nuts. And while it may seem as though people advised to avoid gluten must therefore remove grains and other starches from their diets, thatÂs not the case. In fact, the CDF lists a number of naturally gluten-free grains and starch-containing foods on its website (www. celiac.org). For example, rice, cassava, corn, soy, potato, quinoa, nut Â”ours, and millet are just a handful of the naturally gluten-free grains and starches that people who must avoid gluten can eat without fear of aggravating their conditions.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Â€ WEATHERArmstrong sons, filmmaker defend moon landing in ÂFirst ManÂSee page 8 Monday, September 3, 2018 By SUSAN WALSHASSOCIATED PRESSANNAPOLIS, Md. Â„ Sen. John McCainÂs Â“ nal journey ended Sunday on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future, and alongside a lifelong friend. A horse-drawn caisson carrying the senatorÂs casket led a procession of mourners from the academyÂs chapel to its cemetery following a private service. The senatorÂs widow, Cindy, and his children were among those who walked behind the caisson. Joining them were family and friends as well as members of McCainÂs Class of 1958, military leaders and academy midshipmen. About 4 p.m. a Â” yover of military aircraft honored the Navy pilot who was shot down over Vietnam and held more than Â“ ve years as a prisoner of war. The burial was private as per the wishes of McCain, the Arizona Republican and 2008 presidential nominee died Aug. 25 from brain cancer at age 81. Vehicles that had carried mourners began leaving the area between 4:30 and 5 p.m. One scheduled speaker at the service, Sen. Lindsey Graham, said before the service that he would tell the audience that Ânobody loved a soldier more than John McCain, that I bear witness to his commitment to have their back, travel where they go, never let them be forgotten.ÂŽ Also expected to pay tribute were David Petraeus, a retired general and former CIA director, and McCainÂs son Jack. As the hearse carrying McCain passed through a gate and into the academy, there was loud applause from the several hundred people lining the street outside on the hot and muggy summer day. Many held their hands over their hearts and waved American Â” ags. Some shouted, ÂGod bless you.ÂŽ People in the crowd held signs that read ÂSenator John McCain Thanks For Serving!

By NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESSVATICAN CITY Â„ The Vatican is starting to push back against Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, author of the bombshell accusation of sex abuse cover-up against Pope Francis, with a statement Sunday from its former spokesman about a controversial 2015 meeting Vigano organized. The Rev. Federico Lombardi and his English-language assistant, the Rev. Thomas Rosica, issued a joint statement disputing ViganoÂs claims about the encounter he organized with American anti-gay marriage campaigner, Kim Davis, during FrancisÂ September 2015 visit to the United States. News of the Davis audience made headlines at the time and was viewed by conservatives as a papal stamp of approval for Davis, the Kentucky clerk at the center of the U.S. gay marriage debate. The Vatican furiously sought to downplay it, with Lombardi saying the meeting by no means indicated papal support for Davis and insisting that the only private audience Francis held in Washington was with his former student: a gay man and his partner. The Sept. 24, 2015, meeting and ensuing controversy has been cited as evidence of the frosty relations between Vigano and Francis that predated ViganoÂs remarkable denunciation of how Vatican ofÂ“ cials starting in 2000 knew of sexual misconduct allegations against ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick but covered them up. Vigano, whose Aug. 26 claims that Francis knew about McCarrick starting in 2013 have thrown the papacy into turmoil, issued a second statement Aug. 30 saying Francis knew well who Davis was, and that the Vatican hierarchy approved the meeting in advance. He said he was nevertheless summoned to Rome urgently after news of the meeting was leaked but said the pope had nothing but praise for his efforts organizing the trip when the two met Oct. 9, 2015. In the joint statement Sunday, Rosica transcribed what he said were handwritten notes from a meeting he and Lombardi Vatican begins push-back against ex-ambassador over Davis By DANIEL FIGUEROA IVTHE TAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA, Fla. Â„ As Felicitie Gillette entered the waters of Lake Hernando, there was no way for her to know sheÂd soon become the latest statistic in an alarming and exceptionally Floridian trend Â„ alligator attacks. The American alligator, one of the Sunshine StateÂs most ubiquitous reptiles, wasnÂt always so. At one point, they were hunted to near extinction and placed on the endangered species list until it was taken off in 1987. Since then, scientists say, gator attacks have been on the rise in Florida. Humans may be to blame. According to Inside Science, a science news publication, gator bites in Florida Âhave been on the rise, increasing from an average of just one every three years between 1988 and 1999 to about seven per year between 2000 and 2016.ÂŽ Statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission differ, but still show an increase in the number of alligator bites suffered by humans since gators came off the endangered species list. Bites have increased from about six per year from 1971 through 1986 to about 10 per year from 1987 through 2017, according to FWC data. As population and development has increased in Florida, scientists say, so too have alligator attacks. University of North Florida researchers, studying interaction between humans and alligators, presented their Â“ ndings to the Ecological Society of America earlier this month. Of the many factors they studied, including temperature and rain, they found that humans were the only logical thing to blame for conÂ” icts. ÂUsing simple pairwise linear regression, we found that only human population size was a reliable predictor of alligator attack rates in Florida during the period 19882016,ÂŽ Morgan Golden-Ebanks and Adam E. Rosenblatt wrote in the study. ÂAs a result, management of human-alligator conÂ” ict should focus on limiting human-alligator interactions and preventing the further development of areas used by alligators.ÂŽ Gillette, 24, was a homeless woman bathing in the lake at about 1 a.m. this month when the alligator grabbed her arm and tried to pull her under, according to the Citrus County Chronicle. A friend helped her escape, and she was treated and released at a local hospital, the Chronicle reported. In light of the attack, the wildlife commission is ramping up efforts to keep the public safe around gators. ÂWeÂre stepping up our actions when it comes to gators because, of course, public safety is paramount,ÂŽ FWC spokeswoman Karen Parker said. ÂIf youÂve got a body of water in Florida, thereÂs a good chance thereÂs an alligator in it.ÂŽ Since 2011, Parker said, 36 nuisance alligators have been removed from Lake Hernando alone. When FWC is notiÂ“ ed of nuisance gators, it issues permits to contracted trappers who can sell off the gatorÂs hide and meat. At least 32 permits have been issued in Lake Hernando since 2011, Parker said, some for multiple gators. Alligators are considered nuisance if they are more than 4 feet long and are believed to pose a threat to people, pets or property. The gator in this monthÂs incident is believed to be up to 6 feet long.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018 By BEN CONARCKTHE FLORIDA TIMES-UNIONJACKSONVILLE Â„ For the last seven years, inmates have stocked the libraries of their personal MP3 players with $2 downloads. Come January, theyÂll be forced to hand it all over because the Florida Department of Corrections signed a new deal with a competing company. In April last year, the Florida Department of Corrections struck a deal with JPay. The private company, spearheading a push to sell proÂ“t-driven multimedia tablets to incarcerated people across the country, would be allowed to bring the technology to every facility in the nationÂs third-largest prison system. But there was a catch. Inmates had already been purchasing electronic entertainment for the last seven years Â„ an MP3 player program run by a different company: Access Corrections. For around $100, Access sold various models of MP3 players that inmates could then use to download songs for $1.70 each, and keep them in their dorms. The demand was clear. More than 30,299 players were sold, and 6.7 million songs were downloaded over the life of the Access contract, according to the Department of Corrections. ThatÂs about $11.3 million worth of music. Because of the tablets, inmates will have to return the players, and they canÂt transfer the music they already purchased onto their new devices. Scott Larsen is the sole provider for his 68-year old brother, who is incarcerated at Union Correctional Institution in Raiford. ÂMy brother was a musician, and music is very important to him,ÂŽ said Scott Larsen. ÂThe MP3 player was a good source of entertainment and peace of mind for him.ÂŽ Larsen said he will be able to help his brother rebuild his music library, but there are many other inmates, especially elderly ones, who donÂt have the money or family support to do so. The Department of Corrections, meanwhile, has collected $1.4 million in commissions on each song downloaded and other related sales since July 2011. The multimedia tablet contract with JPay presents another money-making opportunity. JPay already operates banking accounts and facilitates phone calls at the state-run prisons, charging inmates and their loved ones steep fees for the services. With the introduction of tablets, JPay will add a wide swath of new spending incentives for its incarcerated customers, offering purchases of music, emailing and other virtual fare. The resulting download spree will funnel more dollars back to the Department of Corrections, which gleans $2.75 from each inmate money transfer onto the JPay-controlled bank accounts used to purchase the services. The department has already been bringing in record commissions from JPay money transfers, even before the introduction of the tablets. The agency received $3.9 million in commissions from JPay account transfers between April 2017 and March 2018. In the Access Corrections contract, revenue left over after paying to run the program went back in a general fund controlled by the Legislature. But in the JPay contract, the Department retains any excess revenue in its Administrative Trust Fund. The Times-Union has for the last several months requested line-item expenditures from the fund, but has yet to receive anything more detailed than general categories. In the 2016-2017 Â“scal year, about $718,000 from the fund was used to pay out settlements. Sales of the Access Corrections MP3 players in Florida prisons were halted in August 2017, when the department began implementing the new JPay tablet program. Inmates were caught off guard when they learned they would not be able to keep their music or transfer it to the new tablets. Hundreds wrote grievances. The volume of complaints was such that, in December 2017, the Department of Corrections created a new code to track the complaints. Since then, more than 260 additional appeals have been received. Patrick ManderÂ“eld, spokesman for the Department of Corrections, said the switch is meant to introduce updated technology that will help inmates connect with their families and provide educational opportunities, whereas the MP3 players offered only entertainment. He said the songs cannot be transferred because the Âdevices/services are provided by two different vendors.ÂŽ ÂWe have made every effort to ensure inmates can retain non-transferable music by sending their devices and music to an outside address,ÂŽ ManderÂ“eld said. Inmates who owned the players can also receive the mini version of the JPay tablet at no cost, ManderÂ“eld added. At least one department response to sent directly to an inmate contained an additional explanation: money. Katherine Freeman, who is housed at Homestead Correctional Institution, Â“led a grievance saying she purchased more than $2,200 of music since January 2014. She complained last year that she was not informed until October that the music she owns would not transfer to the new tablets. Freeman said in her grievance that the transfers were not being allowed in an attempt Âto increase proÂ“ts to JPay at the expense of hardworking taxpayers (the inmate families).ÂŽ Timothy Hoey, the assistant warden, did not deny the Â“nancial incentives at play in his response to Freeman, saying that it was Ânot feasible to download content from one vendorÂs device to another, not only due to incompatibility reasons, but the download of content purchased from one vendor to another vendorÂs device would negate the new vendorÂs ability to be compensated for their services.ÂŽ ÂIt is the DepartmentÂs hope that the inmate population will see the value and promise in the services offered with the Multimedia Kiosk and Tablet Program as a step in the right direction,ÂŽ Hoey wrote. ÂGrievance Denied.ÂŽ It is unclear whether Hoey crafted the response himself or received it from another corrections ofÂ“cial. As part of the multimedia tablet contract, JPay received a list of inmates who used the MP3 player. William Demler, who is incarcerated at South Florida Reception Center, also Â“led a grievance. He said he purchased 335 songs Âunder the understanding that these purchases would belong to me forever.ÂŽ ÂThe DOC promoted the MP3 Program and encouraged participation to ensure a larger share in the proÂ“ts made by Access Corrections,ÂŽ Demler wrote. ÂDiscontinuing the program and forcing inmates to give up their players without compensation amounts to an act of fraud.ÂŽ The Department of Corrections sent blunt responses to inmate complaints about the MP3 programÂs sudden departure. ÂTo address your concerns about the inability to transfer music from the MP3 player to the new tablet, unfortunately the download of content from one vendorÂs device to another is not allowed,ÂŽ wrote an ofÂ“cial from the Bureau of Contract Management. Boilerplate language sent to inmates also read that the department is Âaware that family members over the years have provided funds to their loved ones to add music to their current MP3 player. ÂIt is unfortunate that the music cannot be transferred, however, we hope that overtime (sic) the family and the inmate will see the added value of the new program.ÂŽ The Department of Corrections negotiated an extension with Access Corrections to allow inmates to keep their MP3 players until Jan. 23, 2019, if they choose not to participate in the tablet program. ManderÂ“eld, the department spokesman, said that a department code prohibits inmates from owning more than one MP3 player at a time, but even without that, inmates would be able to keep the players because the contract is ending and there would be no way to service them. Once returned, the inmates can pay a $25 fee to have their device unlocked or their music downloaded onto a CD before being shipped out to a non-prison address. It is unlikely the inmates see any value in that option. ÂI did purchase my MP3 player in order to keep it, and use it until I go home, not to send it to my family,ÂŽ wrote Felipe Avila in his complaint. ÂIndeed my family does not have a use for such obsolete device, nor do I want it upon my release.ÂŽPrisons to take MP3 players they sold to inmates TALLAHASSEE (AP) Â„ The man who could become FloridaÂs Â“rst black governor on Sunday called on his opponent to refrain from name-calling and to focus on the issues. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for governor, was asked about comments Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis made after TuesdayÂs primary.

The Citrus County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce said deputies responded to a call about a suicidal man just before midnight Friday. Deputies tried making contact through the front door. After no response, they searched the outside of the home. They saw a man across the street in a wooded area. As they approached, they saw he had a gun and ordered him to drop it. Deputies shot the man after repeated refusals to drop the weapon. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce didnÂt release the victimÂs identity. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting, as it does with any deputy-involved shooting.

The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3By JAMEY KEATENASSOCIATED PRESSGENEVA Â„ The U.N. refugee agency says people smugglers are taking greater risks to ferry their human cargo toward Europe as LibyaÂs coast guard intercepts more and more boats carrying migrants, increasing the likelihood that those on board may die during the Mediterranean journeys. ThatÂs one of the key Â“ndings from the latest UNHCR report about efforts to reach Europe. The report, released early Monday and titled ÂDesperate Journeys,ÂŽ says that even though the number of crossings and deaths has plunged compared to recent years, the voyage is more deadly in percentage terms for those who venture across. The report says 2,276 people died last year while trying to cross, or one death for every 42 arrivals. This year, itÂs 1,095 deaths, or one out of every 18 arrivals. In June alone, the proportion hit one death for every seven arrivals. On the Central Mediterranean route so far this year, there have been 10 separate incidents in which 50 or more people died Â„ most after departing from Libya. Seven of those incidents have been since June alone, UNHCR said. ÂThe reason the trafÂ“c has become more deadly is that the trafÂ“ckers are taking more risk, because there is more surveillance exercised by the Libyan coast guards,ÂŽ said Vincent Cochetel, UNHCRÂs special envoy for the central Mediterranean. ÂThey are trying to cut the costs: It costs them more to keep those people here longer in their warehouses, under captivity.ÂŽ Libyan authorities intercepted or rescued 18,400 people between August last year and July this year Â„ a 38-percent increase from the same period of 2016 and 2017. Arrivals by sea from Libya to Europe plummeted 82 percent in those comparable periods, to 30,800 in the more recent one. UNHCR says a growing worry these days is deaths on land by people trying to get to Libya in the Â“rst place, or getting stuck in squalid, overcrowded detention centers: Many get returned there after failing to cross by sea to Europe. ÂThe problems after disembarkation (is that) those people are sent back to detention centers, and many disappear,ÂŽ Cochetel said. ÂMany are sold to militias, and to trafÂ“ckers, and people employing them without paying them.ÂŽ He said the drop in departures means that trafÂ“ckers attempt to Âmonetize their investment, which means they have to exploit more people. That results in more cases of slavery, forced labor, prostitution of those people Â„ because they (smugglers) want to make money on those people.ÂŽ Would-be workers and migrants are still pouring into Libya: Some are Â”eeing injustice, abuse or autocrats in their home countries further south in Africa. Others are looking for work in the oil industry or agriculture. ÂI think you have more deaths on land,ÂŽ Cochetel said, referring to treks across the desert in Sudan, Algeria, Chad and Niger. ÂMany people in Libya are reporting having seeing people dead in the desert on the way to Libya.ÂŽ In Libya, instability continues even seven years after the fall of Moammar GadhaÂ“. French medical aid group Doctors Without Borders said Friday that Â“ghting between rival militias in Tripoli, the capital, has endangered the lives of people trapped there and worsened humanitarian needs Â„ especially at migrant detention centers. Cochetel said Europe Â„ where some countries have shown ÂappallingÂŽ squabbles about who would take in rescue ships carrying migrants Â„ should look at the root causes of such journeys. European populations need to shun anti-migrant rhetoric and realize that Â“gures are down sharply, and migrant Â”ows are clearly manageable at current levels, he said. ÂEurope has to show the lead, has to be exemplary in its response, but itÂs quite clear that itÂs already too late when the people are in Libya,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe need to work downstream in country of Â“rst asylum, in country of origin, and that takes time.ÂŽUN agency: Trips across Mediterranean fall, but risks rise AP FILE PHOTOIn this Â“le photo, migrants stand on the deck of the Open Arms boat, after being rescued o the coast of Libya in the early hours of the night of Aug. 2.

By JONATHAN LANDRUM Jr.ASSOCIATED PRESSATLANTA Â„ A Â“ery, old-school pastor who is under Â“re for saying black America is losing Âits soulÂŽ at Aretha FranklinÂs funeral stands Â“rm by his words with the hope critics can understand his perspective. The Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. told The Associated Press in a phone interview Sunday he felt his sermon was appropriate at FranklinÂs funeral Friday in Detroit. He felt his timing was right, especially after other speakers spoke on the civil rights movement and President Donald Trump. ÂI was trying to show that the movement now is moving and should move in a different direction,ÂŽ he said. Â... What we need to do is create respect among ourselves. Aretha is the person with that song ÂR-E-S-P-E-C-TÂ that is laid out for us and what we need to be as a race within ourselves. We need to show each other that. We need to show each other respect. That was the reason why I did it.ÂŽ Williams, who is the pastor of Salem Bible Church in Atlanta, said his words about black women being incapable of raising sons alone were taken out of context. He described as Âabortion after birthÂŽ the idea of children being raised without a ÂproviderÂŽ father and a mother as the Ânurturer.ÂŽ Many thought Williams took a shot at Franklin, who was a single mother of four boys. But the pastor said a household can become stronger with two parents rather than one. ÂHereÂs the root of what IÂve been talking about: In order to change America, we must change black AmericaÂs culture,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe must do it through parenting. In order for the parenting to go forth, it has to be done in the home. The home.ÂŽ Williams also received backlash for his thoughts about the Black Lives Matter movement. Some called WilliamsÂ eulogy a ÂdisasterÂŽ as his speech caused an uproar on social media and in the funeral crowd, including Stevie Wonder who yelled out ÂBlack Lives MatterÂŽ after the pastor said ÂNo, black lives do not matterÂŽ during his sermon. ÂI think Stevie Wonder did not understand what I said,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂI said blacks do not matter, because black lives cannot matter, will not matter, should not matter, must not matter until black people begin to respect their own lives. Then and only then will black lives matter. ThatÂs what I said, and again, and again, and again. We need to have respect for each other. Once we start doing that, then we can begin to change.ÂŽ Some questioned why he was chosen to honor Franklin. The pastor, who eulogized FranklinÂs father, minister and civil rights activist C.L. Franklin, 34 years ago, said he was appointed by the family to handle the eulogy at her funeral. The pastor said the last time he spoke with Aretha Franklin was a few months ago. Williams was blasted on social media for misogyny, bigotry and the perpetuation of false science on race. He blamed integration and the civil rights movement for ripping the heart out of black micro-economies that once relied on black-owned small businesses such as grocery stores, hotels and banks. Williams said he hasnÂt heard Âone way or anotherÂŽ from the Franklin family, but knows about the social media criticism of him. ÂIÂm sure much of the negativity is due to the fact that they donÂt understand what IÂm talking about,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnybody who thinks black America is all right as we are now is crazy. WeÂre not all right. ItÂs a lot of change that needs to occur. This change must come from within us. Nobody can give us things to eliminate where we are. We have to change from within ourselves. It is ludicrous for the church not to be involved. The church is the only viable institution we have in the AfricanAmerican community. We must step up and turn our race around.ÂŽ Even though Williams spoke for nearly 50 minutes of the eight-hour funeral, the pastor said he didnÂt have enough time to delve deep into his sermon. He said he will expound more on his sermon and how Franklin was originally named the ÂQueen of SoulÂŽ for the next two Sundays at his church. ÂI think if sheÂs immortalized, she should be immortalized,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf we can turn black America around, it would be the greatest and best immortalization we could properly give to her for what she did for black America and the world when she lived.ÂŽAretha Franklin eulogy slammed; pastor stands firm AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 31 Â“le photo, the Rev.

By SAMY MAGDYASSOCIATED PRESSCAIRO Â„ An airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition Â“ghting YemenÂs Iranaligned Houthi rebels in Yemen that killed dozens of people last month is an Âapparent war crime,ÂŽ an international rights group said Sunday. The report came days after U.N. human rights experts said all sides in the Â“ghting may have been responsible for committing war crimes in the 3-year conÂ”ict. The coalition backing YemenÂs internationally recognized government expressed regret Saturday and pledged to hold accountable those found to be responsible for the airstrike, which hit a bus carrying children in a busy market in the northern province of Saada. At least 51 people, including 40 children, were killed, and 79 others, including 56 children, were wounded. Human Rights Watch said the attack adds to the coalitionÂs Âalready gruesome track record of killing civilians at weddings, funerals, hospitals and schools in Yemen.ÂŽ The New York-based group said it spoke by phone to 14 witnesses, including nine children, who said that shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 9, a bomb fell on the market in Dhahyan, a town north of Saada in Houthicontrolled northwestern Yemen, 37 miles from the Saudi border. The bomb landed a few meters from a bus packed with boys on an excursion organized by a mosque to visit the graves of men who had been killed in Â“ghting, the group said. The bus was parked outside a grocery store where the driver had gone to buy water for the children, HRW said. ÂI saw bodies torn into pieces, pieces of my friends. ... Many of my friends died,ÂŽ the group quoted Ahmad Hanash, 14, as saying. He and his brothers Hassan, 13, and Yahia, 11, were wounded in the attack. Bill Van Esveld, senior childrenÂs rights researcher for HRW, urged the U.S. and other countries to Âimmediately stop weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and support strengthening the independent U.N. inquiry into violations in Yemen, or risk being complicit in future atrocities.ÂŽ The coalition said it has accepted the conclusions of its investigative body, known as the Joint Incidents Assessments Team, which found that the airstrike involved Âmistakes,ÂŽ including failing to take measures to minimize collateral damage. The coalition said in its statement Saturday that Âit will take all the legal measures to hold accountable those who were proven to have committed mistakesÂŽ once it ofÂ“cially receives the Â“ndings. It also pledged to coordinate with YemenÂs government to compensate civilians. The U.S. State Department on Sunday welcomed the coalitionÂs statement as Âan important Â“rst step toward full transparency and accountability.ÂŽ It urged all sides of the conÂ”ict to Âabide by the Law of Armed ConÂ”ict, to mitigate harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure, and thoroughly investigate and ensure accountability for any violations.ÂŽ HRWÂs statement came after U.N. human rights experts said last week that the governments of Yemen, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia may have been responsible for committing war crimes, including rape, torture, arbitrary detention and use of child soldiers. The U.N. panel also pointed to possible war crimes committed by the Houthi rebels Â“ghting the coalition.Rights group: Strike on bus in Yemen is Âapparent war crimeÂNATIONAL/WORLD NEWS

Years ago Chuck Larson, an admiral himself and an ally throughout McCainÂs life, reserved four plots at the cemetery Â„ two for McCain and himself, and two for their wives, now widows. Larson died in 2014, and McCain wrote in a recent memoir that he wanted to be buried next to his friend, Ânear where it began.ÂŽ Among the pallbearers on a list provided by McCainÂs ofÂ“ce were Frank Gamboa, his academy roommate; Defense Secretary Jim Mattis; and two men who were POWs with McCain in Vietnam, John Fer and Everett Alvarez Jr. Tributes to McCain began Wednesday in Arizona and continued for the remainder of the week. On Saturday, speeches by his daughter Meghan and two former presidents Â„ Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama Â„ remembered McCain as a patriot who could bridge painful rivalries. While their remarks made clear their admiration for him, they also represented a repudiation of President Donald TrumpÂs brand of tough-talking, divisive politics. Trump and McCain were at odds during the 2016 campaign and for much of TrumpÂs presidency. ÂThereÂs a lesson to be learned this week about John McCain,ÂŽ said Graham, R-S.C. ÂNo. 1, Americans appreciate military service. ... If you work hard and do your homework and know what youÂre talking about, people will listen to you. That if you pick big causes bigger than yourself, youÂll be remembered,ÂŽ he told ÂFox News Sunday.ÂŽ ÂHe tried to drain the swamp before it was cool, that you can Â“ght hard and still be respected. If you forgive, people appreciate it, and if you admit to mistakes, you look good as a stronger man. ThatÂs the formula, John McCain. This was a civics lesson for anybody who wanted to listen. Why do we remember this man? Because of the way he conducted his public life.ÂŽMCCAINFROM PAGE 1had with Vigano the following evening. In those notes, Rosica quoted Vigano as telling them that the pope had actually chastised him for ÂdeceivingÂŽ him with the Davis encounter, and for having withheld the fact that Davis had been married four times. In his part of the joint statement, Lombardi said Vigano initiated the Davis meeting, should have known about the furor that it would cause, and that even though Vatican ofÂ“cials approved of it, they were not sufÂ“ciently informed about the signiÂ“cance such a meeting would take on. The meeting has taken on new relevance following ViganoÂs allegations that he informed Francis of McCarrickÂs misconduct on June 23, 2013, but claimed Francis rehabilitated him from sanctions he said Pope Benedict XVI had imposed on him in 2009 or 2010. There is no evidence those sanctions were ever enforced, since McCarrick lived a very public ministry in those years, travelling around the world for the church. Vigano said Francis should resign for what he said was his complicity in the nearly twodecade-long cover-up of McCarrickÂs misconduct. Francis removed McCarrick as cardinal in July after a U.S. investigation determined an allegation he groped a teenager in the 1970s was credible. Up until then, the only accusations known publicly against McCarrick were of misconduct with adults, an abuse of power but considered much less serious than sexually abusing a minor in the eyes of the church. Rosica said no Holy See ofÂ“cials were involved in the drafting of the statement with Lombardi, but that he shared a copy of it with the Vatican secretary of state and foreign minister. The statement was issued, perhaps coincidentally, on the same day as the announcement that Lombardi would be resuming a more prominent communications role for the church by returning to work at the Jesuit journal, La Civilta Cattolica. The magazine is edited by one of FrancisÂ closest advisers, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, and serves as something of an unofÂ“cial mouthpiece for the Vatican. Its content is vetted by the Vatican secretariat of state prior to publication.VATICANFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPope Francis recites the Angelus noon prayer from the window of his studio overlooking St.PeterÂs Square, at the Vatican, Sunday. involved,ÂŽ she said. ÂEvery effort is made to ensure the responsible alligator has been removed.ÂŽ Statewide, FWC said it receives an average of 15,000 nuisance alligator complaints annually between 2012 and 2016. That led to the removal of more than 7,000 gators per year. After this monthÂs incident, FWC said two gators were removed: one was more than 6 feet long, the other over 7 feet. ÂSwimming in a lake, like just now, and it came up out of nowhere and attacked,ÂŽ she told the 911 operator. ÂHe was shaking me.ÂŽ Alligators have been known to turn up in places where the public might not to expect to encounter one Â„ and those encounters can quickly turn deadly. TheyÂre also not exclusive to Florida. A 45-year-old woman was killed during an alligator attack in Hilton Head, S.C. Cassandra Cline was walking her dog near a lagoon in a private resort when the gator attacked the dog. She died trying to rescue it. In June, a South Florida woman was bit and killed by an alligator at Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie. Like Cline, Shizuka Matsuki was walking her dogs when she was attacked. The FWC said dog walkers should keep pets at least 10 feet from the waterÂs edge to try and avoid attacks. Parker said dogs and cats can appear like an alligatorÂs natural prey, prompting attacks. The best way to keep your pets safe, she said, is to not bring them near a lake. Even the Âmost magical place on earthÂŽ is not immune to gator attacks. In June 2016, a Nebraska toddler was bending down to gather sand for a sandcastle at the edge of a lagoon on Walt Disney WorldÂs Grand Floridian Resort. A 7-foot gator reached up and bit the boyÂs head. His father tried to save him, but couldnÂt wrestle his son from the gatorÂs jaw. An FWC report said the cause of death of the 2-year-old was a crushing bite to the head and drowning. The FWC offered these tips for reducing the likelihood of a gator attack: Â€ Never feed an alligator. ItÂs illegal and causes alligators to overcome their natural wariness and learn to associate people with food. Â€ Keep your distance if you see one. Alligators may look lethargic but can move quickly. Â€ Swim only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn. Â€ Keep pets away from the water (at least 10 feet from the waterÂs edge). The FWC encourages anyone who believes a speciÂ“c alligator poses a threat to people, pets or property to call the Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-392-4286.ATTACKSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPeople watch as the casket of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is brought to Annapolis, Md., Sunday, for his funeral service and burial at the U.S. Naval Academy. ODD NEWSTOLLAND, Conn. (AP) Â„ A Connecticut man who told police he was a paranormal investigator faces several charges after Â“ring shots in his house at what he told police may have been a ghost. Christain Devaux, 25, is due in court on Sept. 11 on charges including the illegal discharge of a Â“rearm, making a false statement to police, second-degree reckless endangerment, misusing an emergency call, and disorderly conduct. Police say Devaux put two bullet holes in his wall on July 26, initially reporting the incident as an attempted break in. He later told police he believes the intruder was actually a spirit. State police told the Journal Inquirer of Manchester that Devaux had made a similar report back in 2011. Man faces charges after shooting at ÂghostÂBy BILL ALLISONBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON Â…Â… Senate Democrats criticized the withholding of documents ahead of TuesdayÂs start of conÂ“rmation hearings for President Donald TrumpÂs Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said on Twitter that the decision to hold back more than 100,000 pages of documents from KavanaughÂs work in President George W. BushÂs administration was unprecedented for nominees and Âhas all the makings of a cover up.ÂŽ Richard Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, said only 6 percent of material requested will be released Âif we are lucky.ÂŽ ÂIf heÂs so proud of his conservative credentials, show us the record, stand before us, trust the American people and they will trust you,ÂŽ Durbin said on ÂFox News Sunday.ÂŽ The Senate Judiciary Committee said Saturday that the release of records is nearly complete. But William Burck, a lawyer representing Bush in the document production, said in a letter released by the committee that after conferring with the White House and the Justice Department, some records would be withheld on the grounds of executive privilege. According to the letter, most of the documents withheld cover Âdeliberations and candid adviceÂŽ about potential nominees for federal courts, while the remainder include substantive communications between Bush and his staff regarding executive orders and legislation. Kavanaugh Âdealt with some of the most sensitive communications of any White House ofÂ“cial,ÂŽ the letter said. While Republicans have emphasized that more than 440,500 pages of material from Kavanaugh have been released, Democrats have fought for more access to documents from his time as a lawyer in the Bush administration before being conÂ“rmed as a federal judge in 2006. Those documents, they say, would provide insights into his thinking on issues including abortion and presidential investigations. ÂItÂs not normal,ÂŽ Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. Â…Â… who, like Durbin, is a Judiciary Committee member, said on NBCÂs ÂMeet the PressÂŽ about the withholding of documents. She said the documents sheÂs seen raise Âvery interesting questionsÂŽ about the nomineeÂs views that sheÂs unable to discuss. Republicans said KavanaughÂs views can be better assessed by studying the more than 300 opinions he has written as a record as a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington. ÂThe Democrats have more than enough information to understand that this is a highly qualiÂ“ed jurist that should be the next Supreme Court justice,ÂŽ Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said on ABCÂs ÂThis Week.ÂŽ ÂIn an earlier time, 30 years ago, he would have passed unanimously.ÂŽ Republicans in 2017 eliminated the 60-vote barrier to setting a vote for Supreme Court nominees, leaving Democrats without the tool of a Â“libuster to delay TrumpÂs pick. Sen Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said on ÂFox News SundayÂŽ that he believes Kavanaugh will be conÂ“rmed and may get as many as 55 votes. Republicans hold 50 seats in the Senate but presumably will soon get another after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, appoints a successor to Â“ll the vacancy left by the death of Sen. John McCain. Some Democrats facing re-election in November in states won overwhelmingly by Trump in 2016 are also likely to side with Republicans on KavanaughÂs nomination.Democrats blast withholding of KavanaughÂs White House records AP FILE PHOTOIn this July 19 Â“le photo, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh glances at reporters during a meeting with Sen.

The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger SaturdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: My wife is 69 and in very good health, exercising at least two hours a day. She has suered from "knots in the back" for over 10 years. It is extremely painful, often bringing her to tears. It comes on suddenly at any time of the day or night, and lasts hours, days and occasionally weeks. She has been to several physicians, whose recommendations are to "live with it." She has tried chiropractic, massage therapy, prescription and OTC painkillers, stretching and home massage, all to no avail. I cannot see the knots, but I can feel a tightness when I attempt to rub them out, which usually does nothing. A glass of wine is the only reliable relief, and it lasts only a few hours. Is there any recourse to this condition? Â„ J.P. ANSWER: I am sure you and your wife must be frustrated. The fact that it comes on suddenly, can be felt as tightness and gets a bit better with alcohol makes me strongly suspect she is having muscle spasms. These most often come on in the legs and feet, but they can aect the back too. Two hours a day of exercising sounds like a lot, and she may be overexercising some muscles, while possibly not exercising others. This can lead to imbalances in muscle strength. Another common problem stemming from exercising is inadequate stretching. Stretching is the rst place to start for many people with muscle cramps. A physical therapist or physiatrist may be of immense benet, and she should explain in detail what her exercise regimen is. We are taught to think carefully of the mechanism of injury, and I am concerned the exercise may be that injury. Abnormalities in electrolytes (blood salts, especially potassium, sodium, magnesium and phosphate) are only rarely the cause, although many people write me that they have been helped by taking one or more of these. Primary muscle diseases, side eects from medications and inadequate hydration are possible, but also unlikely. In absence of detailed knowledge about her exercise regimen, I'd recommend she try backing o a bit, maybe using ice after exercise, stretching the back under supervision and trying a hot bath or shower before bed. DEAR DR. ROACH: In a recent column, you discussed the eect of ibuprofen on men with an enlarged prostate. I am a 78-year-old who runs 15-20 miles per week, with benign prostatic hyperplasia and who also has reduced urinary frequency with occasional use of Advil. As a runner, I have been reluctant to make it a daily regimen because I have read that inammation is part of the body's response to tissue damage, which is crucial to the healing process and is important for muscle growth. When ibuprofen's anti-inammatory eect reduces symptoms, does it aect the healing process also? Can you comment on the pros and cons for runners? Â„ B.M. ANSWER: High-dose ibuprofen was shown to inhibit muscle protein synthesis following weightlifting exercise. This led to a suspicion that it might impair the gains in muscle strength that are made with exercise. However, a Canadian study showed that moderate doses of ibuprofen (400 mg after exercise) did not impair muscle growth or gains in strength. Using ibuprofen for occasional muscle soreness or for the purpose of reducing prostate inammation should not adversely aect your performance in running.DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with a very special man who is ve years younger. We met on an online dating site and have been seeing each other for several years. My dilemma is I have breast implants. I had the surgery 20 years ago when I was newly widowed and about to start dating again. I never told any of the men I dated, and I don't believe anyone suspected. Now that this relationship is serious, I wonder if I need to tell my guy. I am afraid he may have an altered opinion of my body after I tell him. Â„ Old, But Not Dead DEAR O.B.N.D.: I think you should level with him, because if one of the implants should need an "adjustment" or replacement, he will nd out then and may resent the fact that you hadn't told him. If you two are happy together I seriously doubt it will create a wedge between you. DEAR ABBY: I was at a sold-out performance recently, seated next to a family with two young daughters. The youngest daughter had on LED lightup shoes that would ash and blink whenever she stomped her feet. She quietly watched the rst half of the show, but got restless during the second half and began stomping her feet to watch the lights, which was extremely distracting in the dark venue. I asked if she would please stop and thanked her when she obliged, just as I would have done if she were my own daughter. A few minutes later, the family got up and left. On the way out, her father said to me, "About my daughter's shoes? She's (expletive) 4!" in a tone that suggested I should have kept quiet and let her continue doing it. Was I wrong to ask her to stop? Â„ Distracted In The East DEAR DISTRACTED: You couldn't have handled the situation better than you did. The child's father was out of line for using vulgarity, which was uncalled for. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about 911 calls. Â„ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Working as a 911 operator, I've handled many emergencies. However, some people seem confused by the word 'emergency.' It means: a re, a crime, a car crash where someone is hurt, or a medical emergency. "It does NOT mean calling because McDonald's ran out of Chicken McNuggets (this really happened), or telling the operator that a person's house is on re when it is not. Calls like that can earn you jail time and a sti ne, depending on where you live. "We're trained to handle emergencies, not annoying calls. Please only call in a real emergency. If you do call with an emergency, you'll be asked a number of questions in order to assist you and analyze the situation, so stay calm and answer the operator."

So regardless of how favorable or unfavorable is the response youÂre getting, do consider the source. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relationships will be better without interference. Things improve when you stop listening to the advice of your resident know-it-all. Feel your way through. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). ItÂs hard to see your own progress. Things may seem to be coming together more slowly than you would have liked. But what youÂre doing will be super impressive to those who havenÂt checked in on you in a while. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even though youÂve been striving to do something more outrageous than what you wanted before, the little things are still what matter to you. A moment of connection will be the highlight of your day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Shed your reservations; they wonÂt do you much good today. In other words, donÂt hesitate to introduce yourself, ask your question or speak up about what you notice, and go in for the hug. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Things will trend in one direction, and quite logically at that. For instance, tensions will tend to compound on each other, or the opposite way will happen, wherein relaxation leads to laziness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The powers that be push you to the brink of selfdiscovery. Your reactions are surprising to you. ItÂs true you were born with certain gifts and limitations. But ultimately, you decide who you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If someone had told you that this would be where youÂd end up today, you wouldnÂt have believed the person. Your relationship with a Cancer or Capricorn could help you make the most of the opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Favored activities include doing business overseas, dealing in dierent languages or chatting up that mysterious person in your neighborhood who comes from far away. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The kind of clients and customers you desire want to work with people who have passion for the job. The more enthusiastic you are the more money youÂll make. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Will you get what you want? There are as many reasons you could as there are reasons you could not. So hope for the best and try your hardest. YouÂll feel good about what happens, regardless of the outcome. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Simple and small goals will win the day. Reaching out to one person, committing to one project or making one phone call will make more of a dierence than trying to do more. TODAYÂS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 3). You relate to others brilliantly, making them feel witty, accomplished and winning. This catapults you to popularity and political power. At times during this solar return, you will work too hard, but at least youÂll have a good time with it. Fun on the job will be a daily occurrence. YouÂll make a big sale in May. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 3, 33, 25 and 17.

Studios on Sunday say the romantic comedy has topped the domestic charts again. Warner Bros. estimates that the Â“ lm added an additional $22.2 million through Sunday, down only 10 percent from last weekend. To date, the Â“ lm has grossed nearly $111 million from North American theaters, passing the lifetime domestic total of 2015Âs ÂTrainwreck,ÂŽ one of the last big studio rom-com success stories. Should the pace hold through Monday, ÂCrazy Rich AsiansÂŽ could also have one of the biggest Labor Day weekends ever by the time Â“ nal numbers are reported on Tuesday. The current four-day Labor Day record sits with 2007Âs ÂHalloweenÂŽ which opened with $30.6 million and some are projecting that ÂCrazy Rich AsiansÂŽ could hit $30 million. It easily won out over the holdovers and a few newcomers, like the Nazi war crime Â“ lm ÂOperation FinaleÂŽ and the sci-Â“ thriller ÂKin.ÂŽ Warner Bros.Â shark pic ÂThe MegÂŽ took second place with an additional $10.5 million, bringing its global total to $462.8 million. ÂMission: Impossible Â„ Fallout,ÂŽ in its Â“ fth weekend, added $7 million for a third place Â“ nish. ÂOperation FinaleÂŽ landed in fourth place with $6 million. The Â“ lm starring Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley tells the story of how Mossad agent Peter Malkin captured Adolf Eichmann. And the John Cho-led computer screen mystery ÂSearchingÂŽ performed better than expected in its expansion to 1,200 screens, bringing in an estimated $5.7 million through Sunday and rounding out the top Â“ ve. The sci-Â“ thriller ÂKin,ÂŽ with Zoe Kravitz and Dennis Quaid, did not fare as well, and opened outside of the top 10 to only $3 million from over 2,100 theaters. In limited release, Lionsgate and PantelionÂs Spanish-language ÂYa VeremosÂŽ opened to $1.8 million from 369 locations. And Focus FeaturesÂ gothic thriller ÂThe Little StrangerÂŽ launched on 474 screens to $420,000. ÂPretty much every summer ends with a whimper...thatÂs very typical,ÂŽ said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. ÂBut this is going to be a very strong Labor Day weekend.ÂŽ The weekend closes out the fruitful 2018 summer movie season. Box ofÂ“ ce tracker comScore is projecting that the 2018 summer box ofÂ“ ce will net out with around $4.39 billion, up over 14 percent from last year when the summer didnÂt even hit $4 billion. Year to date, the box ofÂ“ ce is up 9.9 percent. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic Â“ gures will be released Tuesday. 1.

In a joint statement Friday, Rick and Mark Armstrong, along with ÂFirst ManÂŽ author James R. Hansen, denied that ChazelleÂs Â“ lm is Âanti-American in the slightest.ÂŽ ÂÂQuite the opposite,ÂŽ they said. ÂThis story is human and it is universal. Of course, it celebrates an America achievement. It also celebrates an achievement Âfor all mankind,ÂÂŽ said the Armstrongs and Hansen. ÂThe Â“ lmmakers chose to focus on Neil looking back at the earth, his walk to Little West Crater, his unique, personal experience of completing this journey, a journey that has seen so many incredible highs and devastating lows.ÂŽ Though ÂFirst ManÂŽ includes several shots showing the American Â” ag on the moon, it does not depict the Â” ag planting. After the Â“ lm premiered earlier this week at the Venice Film Festival, some commentators on social media who hadnÂt seen the movie criticized the Â“ lm. They were reacting largely to Ryan Gosling, who stars as Neil Armstrong, telling reporters in Venice that the astronautÂs accomplishments Âtranscend countries and borders.ÂŽ Columnist Bill Kristol claimed the Â“ lm was Âa foolish and pernicious falsiÂ“ cation of history.ÂŽ But Chazelle said the decision around the Â” ag planting wasnÂt political but aesthetic. The ÂLa La LandÂŽ Â“ lmmaker was motivated to portray the risks and challenges of the moon mission through the eyes of Armstrong. Film critics enthusiastically responded to the Â“ lm, rocketing ÂFirst ManÂŽ to early lists of possible Oscar favorites.

The increasingly explosive combo of sophomore Logan Rogers and senior Marc Jean-Louis, one that IÂve hyped up all preseason, is beginning to Â“ nd its footing and was a nuisance for South Fort Myers. Port Charlotte (2-0) scored on six of its Â“ rst seven possessions with Rogers scoring four touchdowns and Jean-Louis catching two of them, running for another in a 52-6 win. Jean-Louis totalled 190 yards and three scores. Lemon Bay High School, on the other hand, was the only area team that was on the losing side of their matchups. The Mantas (0-1) opened their season against a talented Golden Gate team that took down Immokalee last week. Immokalee went 13-1 a season ago. At the half, the Mantas held a slim 16-15 lead, but fell apart in the second half. In the second quarter, Lemon BayÂs Devante Roberson ran a 16-yard touchdown to put the Mantas on the board and a successful 2-point conversion by Keegan Marinola gave Lemon Bay an 8-0 lead. Two scores by Golden Gate running back Jouvensly Bazile, a Washington State commit, gave the Titans the lead, but with 4:00 left in the half, Lemon Bay tied it on a 7-yard run by Sean Shamasian. The Mantas took the lead on another successful 2-point conversion. This eventually led to a 7-yard touchdown run from Sean Shamasian to tie the game for Lemon Bay and then take the lead on a two-point conversion. In the second half though, Bezile took over and the Mantas could do little to stymie his efforts. Bezile rushed for 280 yards with three of his four touchdowns going for 60 yards or more.

Â„ When Florida State coach Willie Taggart makes his debut on Monday, most eyes will be Â“ xated on Deondre Francois and how he leads an up-tempo spread offense. Taggart has affectionately called the offense ÂLethal Simplicity,ÂŽ but what makes it dynamic is the run-pass balance. No. 19 Florida State may have Francois, who was a 3,000-yard passer as a freshman in 2016 before suffering a knee injury last year. But the Seminoles will feature a deep backÂ“ eld with Cam Akers, Jacques Patrick, Khalan Laborn, Amir Rasul and Anthony Grant. ÂThey are very special,ÂŽ Taggart said. ÂYou can put a guy in there, you donÂt have to change up anything. You donÂt have to deviate from what youÂre doing offensively.

ItÂs a celebration Charlotte was intending on having with a win-or-gohome season finale against the sub-.500 Fire Frogs (51-80). But despite jumping out to a 2-0 lead Sunday at home, the Stone Crabs (74-62) gave up five unanswered runs as their season ended with a 5-2 thud. ÂIt hurts a lot because of all the effort we put in all year long,ÂŽ Charlotte manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. ÂIt came down to the last game and unfortunately we couldnÂt get it done.ÂŽ The Stone Crabs needed a trio of events to transpire in order to make the playoffs. First off, they had to win their final two games against Florida. Charlotte also needed help from Clearwater, who could seal the Stone CrabsÂ fate with a weekend sweep of Fort Myers. The Threshers took one of two, falling 2-1 to the Miracle on Sunday setting Charlotte up with a win-orgo-home scenario with the Florida State League second half title up for grabs. Charlotte dominated the first six innings of play with a solid effort from starting pitcher Brian Shaffer. Shaffer went six innings without relinquishing a hit. In tandem with the strong pitching, Charlotte jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning, giving the Stone Crabs a false sense of comfort. Following a Jake Fraley hit that set himself up on second and Chester Rogers on third, catcher Rene Pinto singled to left field to score Rogers. Russ Olive followed with a sacrifice-fly to score Fraley. But that would be the end of CharlotteÂs success in the game. After controlling the plate through the first six innings, Shaffer gave up By BRIAN MAHONEYAP SPORTS WRITERNEW YORK (AP) Â„ Rafael Nadal is back in the U.S. Open quarterÂ“ nals, where he wonÂt face a rematch of the 2017 Â“ nal. Instead, itÂs a rematch of this yearÂs French Open Â“ nal. Nadal beat Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-4 on Sunday at Flushing Meadows. Next up is No. 9 seed Dominic Thiem. Thiem beat Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (2), denying the Â“ fth-seeded South African a second shot at Nadal. Nadal beat Anderson last year for his third U.S. Open title. The top-ranked Spaniard captured his 11th title in Paris by beating Thiem in straight sets in June. That was part of whatÂs now a 26-1 run since Thiem beat him in the quarterÂ“ nals of the Madrid Open in May. ÂHeÂs a very powerful player, and, yeah, he knows how to play these kinds of matches,ÂŽ Nadal said. ÂYeah, I need to play my best match of the tournament if I want to keep having chances to stay in the tournament.ÂŽ Nadal leads the series 7-3, with all the meetings on clay. On Sunday, he responded to losing the third-set tiebreaker by breaking Basilashvili twice in the fourth set. Anderson was hoping to be waiting for Nadal. His run to last yearÂs Â“ nal was a surprise; At No. 32, he was the lowest-ranked U.S. Open Â“ nalist in the history of the ATP rankings. But he backed that up with a strong season, reaching the Wimbledon Â“ nal and earning the No. 5 seed in this tournament. ÂOf course itÂs disappointing,ÂŽ Anderson said. ÂI wanted to be here right until the end and put myself in contention of winning my Â“ rst major. It wasnÂt meant to be.ÂŽ He had won six of seven meetings against Thiem, including all six on hard courts. ThiemÂs only victory had come on clay, his best surface. But Anderson couldnÂt get anything going in this matchup with Thiem, who won 41 of 45 points (91 percent) and never faced a break point.

Ryan Yarbrough, another rookie, allowed one run in Â“ ve-plus innings of relief for opener Diego Castillo, who was removed after Yandy DiazÂs leadoff single in the second. Yarbrough (13-5), who earned his major league-leading 11th relief win, was pulled after Jose RamirezÂs RBI single in the seventh. Adam Kolarek pitched two scoreless innings before Cleveland made it closer in the ninth. The Rays have won 11 of 13 and are a season-high 10 games over .500 (73-63). Tampa Bay trails Oakland by eight games for the second wild card spot in the AL. Francisco Lindor singled off Hunter Wood to lead off the ninth. Jose Ramirez drew a one-out walk and Diaz had an RBI single. Jose Alvarado replaced Wood and struck out Yonder Alonso, but Melky CabreraÂs two-run double cut the lead to two. Alvarado struck out Jason Kipnis for his seventh save in 10 opportunities. Lowe homered to lead off the second and added a two-run double in the seventh for his Â“ rst-ever three-hit game. Carlos Carrasco (16-7) allowed Â“ ve runs in 6 1/3 innings and lost for the third time in his last 11 decisions. Carrasco appeared to wince after throwing a pitch to Jake Bauers in the fourth. Several inÂ“ elders talked with him on the mound and were soon joined by manager Terry Francona and a team trainer. Carrasco remained in the game and walked Bauers before striking out Carlos Gomez and Adam Moore. C.J. Cron began the fourth with his team-leading 26th homer. Joey Wendle, who made two outstanding plays at third base in the sixth, had an RBI double in the seventh that was followed by Tommy PhamÂs run-scoring triple. Wendle charged Greg AllenÂs slow roller and threw the speedy center Â“ elder out at Â“ rst.

MLB: Tampa Bay 6, Cleveland 4 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Â„ Georgia Hall pulled away from Minjee Lee late in the third round Saturday to take a twostroke lead in the Cambia Portland Classic. The WomenÂs British Open winner four weeks ago for her Â“ rst LPGA Tour title, Hall shot a 3-under 69. She birdied the par-3 16th and par-4 17th and made a 6-foot par save on the par-4 18th at tree-lined Columbia Edgewater. ÂSixteen and 17 are tough holes, especially with both pin positions, so I was very happy to hole some putts that I didnÂt really hole much today,ÂŽ Hall said. ÂIÂve got a two-shot lead. Still a lot of golf to play, but looking forward to tomorrow.ÂŽ The 22-year-old Englishwoman had an 18-uner 198 total. She opened with a 66 and shot 63 on Friday. ÂI deÂ“ nitely putted yesterday like I did at the British,ÂŽ Hall said. ÂHopefully, IÂll putt like that tomorrow, as well. But I still kind of feel the same, and IÂm just looking forward to playing another round of 18 holes.ÂŽ Lee had a 68. The Australian lost a share of the lead with a bogey on 17. ÂJust tried to play my game,ÂŽ Lee said. ÂI felt like I played pretty solid all day. Probably had one bad drive on 17 that really cost me my bogey.ÂŽ Marina Alex was third at 12 under, shooting her second 71 after opening with a 62. ÂIt was Â“ rm today,ÂŽ Alex said. ÂThe greens were really Â“ rm. The last like six holes, it was tough to just get at the Â” ags. Once you got past 12 itÂs hard to get it close. I hit really good putts, too, and it was just a lot of lips. But hoping to just have a really great day and see what happens.ÂŽ Brittany Marchand (70) and Ayako Uehara (70) were 10 under. Brooke Henderson had a 74 to fall into a tie for sixth at 7 under.

(AP) Â„ Abraham Ancer of Mexico opened with three straight birdies on his way to a 6-under 65 to take a one-shot lead Sunday over a familiar Â“ gure going into the Â“ nal round of the Dell Technologies Championship. It wasnÂt Tiger Woods, but the guy playing with him Â„ Bryson DeChambeau, who is coming off a four-shot victory in the Â“ rst FedEx Cup playoff event and shot 63 while playing with Woods for the Â“ rst time in a tournament. DeChambeau and Tyrrell Hatton (69) were one shot behind. It Â“ gures to be another frantic Labor Day Â“ nish on the TPC Boston. Ancer, at No. 92 in the FedEx Cup just hopeful of getting into the top 70 to advance to the playoff event next week outside Philadelphia, was at 13-under 200. A victory would assure a trip to the Tour Championship and a spot in the Masters. Ten players were within four shots of the lead, a group that included Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. Woods had to settle for a 69 that left him in a tie for 16th, six shots behind. At least he saw plenty of good golf. DeChambeau has become of his regular practice partners, though they had never been in the same group until Sunday. DeChambeau opened with two birdies and Â“ nished even stronger, with short birdie putts on the 16th and 17th, and then a 5-iron from 237 yards that stopped rolling 2 feet from the hole for an eagle. Not since Vijay Singh in 2008 has anyone captured the opening two FedEx Cup. DeChambeau led by four shots at Ridgewood last week and never was seriously challenged. This time, the 24-yearold Californian will have to come from one shot behind against a 27-yearold playing in only his 49th PGA Tour event. Hatton had the lead until his approach on the par-4 12th went off a cart path and into the trees, and a search party of some three dozen fans and volunteers never found it. He did well to escape with a double bogey, and then Â“ nished with a birdie for a 69. Justin Rose (70) and Cameron Smith (67) were another shot behind, followed by Emiliano Grillo (64) and Kyle Stanley (66).Abraham Ancer of Mexico leads at TPC Boston AP PHOTOAbraham Ancer tees o on the 17th hole during the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship golf tournament at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018. By BEN WALKERAP BASEBALL WRITERMajor League Baseball has told teams that itÂs OK for pitchers to use the kind of scouting cards that umpire Joe West conÂ“ scated from Philadelphia reliever Austin Davis on the mound this weekend. Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday that heÂd been informed the cards were legal. They are, provided they donÂt delay games, MLB told clubs in clarifying the policy. It has become common in the age of advanced baseball analytics to see outÂ“ elders and inÂ“ elders pulling info cards from their pockets to check on proper positioning. But the sight of a pitcher doing it on the mound caught a lot of attention at Citizens Bank Park. The unusual situation occurred Saturday night in the eighth inning of the Chicago CubsÂ 7-1 win at Philadelphia. The NL Central-leading Cubs were ahead 5-1 as Addison Russell approached the plate. Davis took the reference card from his back pocket, checked the scouting report on Russell, and then put it away. West, in his 41st season as an umpire, came in from third base and took the card. He said it was illegal under Rule 6.02(7), which states that the pitcher shall not have on his person, or in his possession, any foreign substance. Kapler and Davis said the left-hander was looking at the card merely for information on the Cubs hitters. The 25-year-old rookie said heÂs used them this season. ÂI think usually itÂs a quick glance and go. I was waiting for whoever it was to get in the box. So I think it took an extra second or something and caught his eye. But I donÂt know,ÂŽ Davis said after the game.Info, please: MLB tells teams scouting cards OK for pitchers GOLF: Dell Technologies Championship GOLF: Cambia Portland Classic MLB: Phillies

The wind was blowing and they took advantage of it and at the end they won the game. It was weird, but thatÂs baseball.ÂŽ ThatÂs where things fell apart for one of the best stone crabs teams in franchise history. With the Fort Myers game becoming final just prior to the start of the ninth inning, the pressure was on to erase the deficit. That pressure began to get to the players, though, as they continued to struggle in the final inning. With runners on second and third, William Contreras sent a shot to the gap in center field, which scored Garrison Schwartz and Greyson Jenista to give the fire Frogs a 5-2. Despite the unforeseen closure to the season, Ruiz has a lot to take away from his first season as manager with Charlotte. The team broke eight franchise records including runs, batting average, hits, doubles, home runs, RBI, onbase percentage and slugging percentage. ÂItÂs very intense and I like that,ÂŽ Ruiz said. ÂIT was my first years with the tema and the staff and this league is amazing. ItÂs very competitive and I really lerned a lot from this year.ÂŽ SUN PHOTOS BY TOM OÂNEILLCharlotte Stone Crabs second baseman Vidal Brujan (2) runs out an inÂ“eld hit during the Â“rst inning against the Florida Fire Frogs on Saturday at Charlotte Sports Park. By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTPUNTA GORDA Â… For the Charlotte High School swimming team, it was the younger swimmers who took center stage at their Â“rst full meet of the season Saturday. After much of their Â“rst meet was stopped by the weather, the Tarpon Mini Invitational at the South County Regional Park pool was the Â“rst chance the young Tarpons had an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities in a competitive high school atmosphere, and if you asked Charlotte swim coach Jeff Cain, they all did quite well. ÂWe did very well. We had some nice swims and are way ahead of last year. WeÂre a very young team and they all swam well,ÂŽ Cain said. ÂI canÂt pick one out. They all did their job.ÂŽ The boys and girls each Â“nished third overall in the six-team meet, and each had their highlights. The boys took the 200-meter relay, with senior Josh Eaton winning the 50-meter freestyle as the lone individual boys winner. ÂI did a lot better than I thought. We had morning practice which I thought would effect my performance, but it helped,ÂŽ Eaton said. ÂCoach has done a great job working us. For me, itÂs getting my rest at night, eating and drinking a lot of water and trusting him in that aspect.ÂŽ Dylan Hacker, along with Eaton, won the relay, but Â“nished second in the 200-meter individual medley and third in the breaststroke. The 400-meter relay also Â“nished second, as did Gage McCauley in the one-meter diving. The 200-meter medley relay was third, as was Carl Eisen in the 100 meterfreestyle and James Rose in the 500 meter freestyle. For the girls, sophomore Karys Nelson had to share CharlotteÂs lone event win with Nugget Feehery of Barron Collier in the 100-meter freestyle and took second in the 50 meter freestyle. Vanessa Deel was second in the 100-meter breaststroke. ÂI dropped two seconds off my time in the breaststroke. I want to help my team get into states and get myself in a few events and maybe break 1:10 in the 100-meter breast,ÂŽ Deel said. ÂAs a team I want us to all train together and build better chemistry. My role is to encourage the younger swimmers and keep them upbeat.ÂŽ Otherwise, Charlotte Â“nished third in all three relays. Melody Stelmazek was third in the 500-meter freestyle. There were also many swimmers both boys and girls who Â“nished well and earned the Tarpons points. Cain said the key now is to keep working the kids hard the rest of the way. ÂWe need to keep developing, keep teaching, keep learning and keep getting better and see if we can do better than we did last year,ÂŽ Cain said. ÂWe havenÂt hit the ceiling. ThereÂs a lot of improvement ahead.ÂŽMini-Invitational resultsGirls BARRON COLLIER 516.5, FORT MYERS 397, CHARLOTTE 350.5, CAPE CORAL 328, NORTH FORT MYERS 180, NORTHEAST 160 200 medley relay: 1.

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018By JOEY KNIGHTTAMPA BAY TIMESBecause he had watched Blake Barnett for fewer than two-dozen practices, Bulls coach Charlie Strong wasnÂt totally sure what to expect from his new quarterback in SaturdayÂs season opener. The same canÂt be said for BarnettÂs top target. Strong sensed redshirt freshman Randall St. Felix was bound for a breakthrough. It came to proliÂ“c fruition (seven catches, 143 yards, one touchdown) in the BullsÂ 34-14 rout of Elon. It was the top receiving debut by a freshman in program ÂHe has looked the way he looked tonight since spring practice,ÂŽ Strong said. ÂAnd even last year, when we redshirted him and he was on scout team, he was making those type of catches.ÂŽ Arguably the most impressive offensive player of USFÂs preseason (according to some privy to the practices), St. Felix had receptions of 40 and 52 yards. The 40-yarder came on the BullsÂ Â“fth offensive play, when the Miami native got behind his coverage on a simple streak route for a touchdown. ÂThe corner, I guess he was a little undecided so I just ran by him,ÂŽ he said. The performance highlighted what amounted to an ensemble effort for USFÂs receivers, nine of whom caught at least one pass. But only St. Felix and junior Darnell Salomon (who had a 50-yarder) had receptions of longer than 16 yards. Â(St. Felix) is just a big, strong, physical receiver, has big hands and is able to make the play,ÂŽ Strong said. ÂAnd you look at him, he can stretch it verticalÂƒor he can make the 5-yard catch and turn it into big yardage.ÂŽUSF morning after: St. Felix shines in Bulls debut TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOUSF wide receiver Randall St. Felix (84) makes the catch over Elon defensive back Zavier Williams (24) during the Â“rst half of the game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, September 1, 2018. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: USF RecapBy DAVID GINSBURGAP SPORTS WRITERLANDOVER, Md. Â„ After enduring a harrowing summer of scrutiny and change, Maryland and No. 5 Ohio State Â“nally got to play a football game. It was a welcome respite. As a bonus, both Big Ten teams fashioned a victory worth savoring. Playing under interim coach Matt Canada, Maryland launched a season dedicated to fallen teammate Jordan McNair with a 34-29 victory over No. 23 Texas on Saturday. McNair died of heatstroke two weeks after collapsing during a conditioning drill in late May. Investigations into his treatment on the scene and the culture of the program led the school to place head coach DJ Durkin on administrative leave in August. Temporarily putting the sadness and uncertainty behind them, the uniÂ“ed Terrapins beat a Texas team that entered as a 13 1/2-point favorite. ÂWeÂre a really closeknit family,ÂŽ said quarterback Kasim Hill, who threw for 222 yards and a touchdown. ÂEverything that has happened this summer has brought us closer together. ItÂs been a long time since weÂve played a football game, and it was just fun to be back out there with everybody.ÂŽ In his head coaching debut, Canada, MarylandÂs Â“rst-year offensive coordinator, efÂ“ciently pulled the squad together and guided an attack that amassed 407 yards. ÂThe only people that knew how we were going to play were the guys in our building, and I think they had no doubt they were going to win,ÂŽ Canada said. ÂI can get nervous about just about anything, (but) they convinced me.ÂŽ The Buckeyes also played their opener Saturday with a substitute head coach. Taking over for suspended Urban Meyer in a home game against Oregon State, Ryan Day directed Ohio State to a 77-31 rout. Meyer will be allowed to return to practice on Monday, although his suspension by the university will last for two more games. He was sanctioned after an investigation showed he mismanaged former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other inappropriate behavior. Against the overmatched Beavers, Ohio State turned its focus entirely on game day. After enduring a lengthy weather delay Â„ just like Maryland Â„ the result was a feel-good victory. ÂA lot of things the last month have been out of our control as players,ÂŽ receiver Terry McLaurin said. ÂWe just wanted to come out here and do what we love.ÂŽ With a 1-0 record and Meyer slated to return to practice, the situation at Ohio State is pretty much close to normal again heading into the Big Ten opener this Saturday. ÂWeÂre looking forward to getting him back and looking forward to those meetings and kind of building as we go to Rutgers,ÂŽ Day said. ÂIt will be business as usual for us. WeÂll look at the Â“lm, make corrections, go from there.ÂŽ ItÂs going to take quite a bit more time for Maryland to make this a business-as-usual season. DurkinÂs status remains up in the air, and the team will keep McNair in their thoughts for years to come. The Terrapins began the Texas game by lining up with 10 players on offense, a tribute to their missing sophomore offensive lineman. Afterward, guard Ellis McKinnie waved a Â”ag with McNairÂs No. 79, and the players shouted the number in the jubilant locker room. ÂOf course every win is great, but the team stuck together through the course of everything that has happened,ÂŽ receiver Taivon Jacobs said. ÂThat was our motto and we stuck by it, from the players to the coaches and staff.ÂŽMaryland, No. 5 Ohio State use game day as welcome escape AP PHOTOMaryland interim head coach Matt Canada, center, gestures in the Â“nal moments of an NCAA college football game against Texas, Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, in Landover, Md. Maryland won 34-29. By CHARLES ODUMAP SPORTS WRITERATHENS, Ga. Â„ Demetris Robertson Âran out of gasÂŽ when he scored on a 72-yard run the Â“rst time he touched the ball in his Georgia debut. That was the report from Georgia coach Kirby Smart. SmartÂs claim couldnÂt be conÂ“rmed by Austin Peay. No defender was close enough to Robertson to offer an expert opinion. RobertsonÂs second-quarter scoring run was one example of No. 3 GeorgiaÂs newly expanded options at wide receiver and running back during SaturdayÂs season-opening 45-0 win over the Governors. Mecole Hardman scored on a 59-yard pass from Jake Fromm Freshman James Cook had runs of 36 and 26 yards. Robertson, a sophomore from Savannah, was granted immediate eligibility following his transfer from California. As a freshman at Cal, he had 50 catches for 767 yards and seven touchdowns and tied for Â“fth nationally with Â“ve receptions of 50-plus yards. He also ran sprints on CalÂs track team. RobertsonÂs big run was his only chance to shine in GeorgiaÂs debut. The Bulldogs open their Southeastern Conference schedule at South Carolina next week, and that may be RobertsonÂs chance to play a bigger role. Against Austin Peay, Smart could afford to be patient. There was ample depth at wide receiver even with 2017 starter Terry Godwin sitting out with a knee injury. Eleven receivers caught 21 passes from Fromm, freshman Justin Fields and Matthew Downing. Georgia also showed depth at tailback even after losing Sony Michel and Nick Chubb to the NFL. DÂAndre Swift, Elijah HolyÂ“eld and Cook had runs of at least 15 yards. Brian Herrien had only one carry for two yards, but he added three catches for 20 yards. ÂWe can do a lot,ÂŽ said Swift, who started at tailback and had a teamhigh eight carries for 43 yards and a touchdown, plus a team-high four catches for 33 yards. ÂWe have a lot of weapons on this offense,ÂŽ Swift said. ÂThatÂs to our advantage this year.ÂŽ Smart said the depth at the skill positions means the competition extends to less glamorous parts of the game. ÂThey look at it as if they call on me to go block somebody, I better do it good or I might not be back in here,ÂŽ Smart said. ÂThe motivating factor is IÂve got to do great things without the ball, not necessarily great things with the ball.ÂŽ Riley Ridley had three catches, including a 10-yarder for GeorgiaÂs Â“rst touchdown of the season. Smart said Ridley Âwas physical in his blocking.ÂŽ Swift was one of six players to score a touchdown. ÂWeÂre just so deep on offense with everybody,ÂŽ Swift said, adding, ÂWe can use so many people on so many different things.ÂŽRobertson adds speed to No. 3 GeorgiaÂs deep group at WR By DAVE SKRETTAAP SPORTS WRITERLAWRENCE, Kan. Â„ There was a point Saturday night when Kansas was trailing Nicholls State in the second half and, a short drive down Interstate 70, Kansas State was trying desperately to rally against South Dakota. The Jayhawks wound up losing in overtime. The Wildcats barely survived. For both, it was a somber, somewhat humiliating start to a season that was Â“lled with expectations. They each returned a load of starters on both sides of the ball, and while Kansas was hoping for a breakthrough campaign that might save coach David BeatyÂs job, the Wildcats harbored hopes of competing with Oklahoma and West Virginia for the Big 12 championship. Those goals are still attainable, of course. The odds just seem a lot longer now. ÂIÂll tell you this, the sun is going to come up tomorrow, and this team is going to continue to work toward the goals that they have set,ÂŽ said Beaty, who has never been one for pessimism. He could leave that to his counterpart at Kansas State. Asked about his emotions after the 27-24 victory, which required 15 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, Snyder replied: ÂAll of them Â„ angered, disappointed, et cetera. But it goes back again, we can say all we want about anything, but I just didnÂt have them prepared to play.ÂŽ ÂIf they were ready to play and played the way we wanted them to,ÂŽ Snyder continued, Âwhich is my responsibility, we would have probably fared a little bit better than what we did.ÂŽ Both games deserve a bit of context: Nicholls State is an ascending program with several high-major transfers that reached the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs last season, and South Dakota also made the playoffs Â„ and won a game Â„ while challenging for the Missouri Valley title. But neither of them is the same caliber of Central Michigan, where the Jayhawks visit Saturday as they seek their Â“rst road victory since the 2009 season. And they certainly arenÂt on the same level as No. 18 Mississippi State, which brings its high-powered offense to Manhattan next weekend. The Jayhawks, to their credit, donÂt sound as if theyÂre going to let another embarrassing defeat linger any longer than the next Â“lm study. ÂWe go into Â“lm, see what we did wrong and make corrections. Then we have to Â”ush this one. We canÂt let it loom around and drag us down for the rest of the year,ÂŽ Kansas linebacker Joe Dineen Jr. said. ÂItÂs one loss. Half the teams in the country right now have one loss.ÂŽ The problems that face Kansas are oh-so-familiar, though. Its defense was unable to make a stop when it mattered most, after Kansas kicked a Â“eld goal to start overtime, in the 26-23 loss. The JayhawksÂ special teams were shaky and their offense, despite an inÂ”ux of talent and an offensive-minded head coach, continued to struggle.K-State survives, Kansas upset to start college season COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Big 10 Recap COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Georgia Recap COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Big 12 Recap
The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7By ANDREW SELIGMANAP SPORTS WRITERLAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Â„ Whether they were loading up around Mitchell Trubisky or swinging a last-minute blockbuster trade for Khalil Mack, the offseason was all about the quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Develop their own Â„ and harass their opponentÂs. Now, itÂs time to see how it all comes together. But the Bears sure look like they are poised for bigger things after four straight last-place Â“nishes in the NFC North. They spent much of the offseason surrounding Trubisky with the weapons they believe he needs to succeed, hiring the offensive-minded Matt Nagy to replace the Â“red John Fox after a 5-11 season and adding play-makers such as former Jacksonville Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson. The biggest addition? That would be Mack, acquired from Oakland on Saturday. A two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection, he has 40 1/2 sacks in four seasons. Mack gives an already solid defense an elite edge rusher, though heÂs not the only important addition. The Bears added a potential cornerstone player when they drafted inside linebacker Roquan Smith at No. 8 overall. Clearly, general manager Ryan Pace is thinking big. The Bears have made the playoffs once since the 2006 teamÂs run to the Super Bowl. They have Â“ve straight seasons without a winning record. And they have a fan base thatÂs antsy yet energized. Here are some things to know as the Bears get ready to open the season at Green Bay on Sept. 9: NEW MONSTER : Mack is the best pass rusher acquired by the Bears since Julius Peppers left Carolina to sign with them in 2010. His arrival could turn a defense that ranked 10th overall into an elite unit. And it gives coordinator Vic Fangio Â„ who re-signed after getting passed over for the head coaching job Â„ a major weapon. More pressure on the quarterback could lead to more interceptions for the Monsters of the Midway after they had one of the lowest totals in the NFL last season with eight. That was a big sticking point for a defense that ranked seventh against the pass, ninth in scoring and 11th against the run. The Bears also tied for seventh in sacks. NEXT STEP : Whether he makes the sort of leap Carson Wentz and Jared Goff did in their second seasons, the Bears are banking on Trubisky to take at least a few big strides. They also expect him to hit a few more bumps along the way. ÂThe Â“rst time we get out there and play a real game in Lambeau and we play that Â“rst regular-season game, thereÂs gonna be hiccups,ÂŽ Nagy said. ÂHeÂs gonna learn from that. Then we just continue to grow as the games go by. Mitch can handle all of it.ÂŽ Trubisky threw for 2,193 yards and completed 59.4 percent of his passes in 12 starts last season. But the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft also threw as many touchdowns as interceptions (seven). But heÂs playing in a more open and aggressive system with some new receivers, something the Bears sorely lacked. Besides Robinson, they also added receivers Taylor Gabriel and rookie Anthony Miller, as well as tight end Trey Burton. NEW TERRITORY : Though he comes with a reputation for developing quarterbacks, one thing Nagy does not have is experience as a head coach. He didnÂt even start calling plays until late last season with Kansas City, where coach Andy Reid handled those chores. And he never really had to worry about the defense or special teams until now. ÂItÂs one of those things, some coaches are offensive, some coaches are defensive, and heÂs a guy that can really rally all the guys,ÂŽ guard Kyle Long said. The Bears certainly needed a lift after going 14-34 over three seasons under Fox. That gave him the second-worst winning percentage in franchise history. ON THE MEND : Almost as important as TrubiskyÂs development is the health of Robinson and Long. Both players are coming back from injuries and hoping to Â”ash their old Pro Bowl form. Robinson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last yearÂs opener with Jacksonville. The 2015 Pro Bowl receiver was injured on the JaguarsÂ third play and missed the remainder of the season. Long, a three-time Pro Bowl lineman, is healthy after two injury-Â“lled seasons. HeÂs coming off shoulder, elbow and neck surgeries, not to mention a major ankle injury in recent years. CATCHING UP : The Bears were drawn to Smith partly because of his speed. Seeing how quickly he can catch up following a holdout wasnÂt what they had in mind. The inside linebacker from Georgia showed up 30 days after rookies were supposed to report to camp. He was the Â“nal pick in this yearÂs NFL draft to sign by the time he agreed to a four-year contract that guarantees $18.5 million and includes an $11.5 million signing bonus. There was a holdup over contract language.Bears see better days with Mack, new weapons for Trubisky AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 18, 2018, Â“le photo, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (10) throws against the Denver Broncos during the Â“rst half of a preseason NFL football game, in Denver.

By STEVEN WINEAP SPORTS WRITERDAVIE, Fla. (AP) Â„ The Miami Dolphins now have four quarterbacks on the roster, and they still have a battle for the backup job behind Ryan Tannehill. Coach Adam Gase declined to say Sunday whether Brock Osweiler or David Fales would be Â“rst off the bench to replace Tannehill, but said he expects to keep all three all season. Even so, the Dolphins found room on their roster to add rookie quarterback Luke Falk, claimed one day after being waived by the Tennessee Titans. Falk, a sixth-round draft pick, could make an immediate impact by providing insight into the TitansÂ playbook under a new coaching staff. The Dolphins open the season against Tennessee on Sept. 9. The margin between Osweiler and Fales in the competition for the No. 2 job was thin throughout training camp, Gase said. ÂItÂs day to day,ÂŽ he said. ÂI feel like it goes back and forth. ItÂs one of those things Â„ whoever has the best protection on that particular night, it seems that guy has a good night in preseason. ThatÂs what is always going to make it tough deciding whoÂs the backup. YouÂre guessing a little bit.ÂŽ Gase said he may list the No. 2 quarterback as ÂOsweiler or FalesÂŽ on the depth chart preceding the Titans game. ÂNothing changes for me,ÂŽ Osweiler said. ÂIÂm just solely focused on trying to get better. Whoever is the 2, whoever is the 3, thatÂs something I canÂt control.ÂŽ The Dolphins are underdogs in the opener despite being at home, and coming off a 6-10 season in 2017, theyÂre widely projected to Â“nish below .500 again. But in the wake of cuts to reach the 53-man roster limit, Gase sounded as optimistic as every other coach at the end of the preseason. Roster turnover has resulted in a better locker-room culture, Gase said, and he anticipates the improvement to be reÂ”ected in the win-loss record. ÂI like our team. WeÂre a team,ÂŽ he said, emphasizing the last word. ÂThatÂs the best part about what we have going on right now Â„ that locker room. IÂm not really worried about what anybody else thinks about that. When youÂre not there every day and around these guys, you donÂt know. You can look at a piece of paper, but thatÂs why they play the games.ÂŽ Miami should be better at quarterback, with Tannehill returning after missing last season following left knee surgery. But itÂs unclear whether holdover Fales or newcomer Osweiler represents an upgrade over the departed Matt Moore, who had been TannehillÂs backup since 2012. The play of both Osweiler and Fales was spotty during training camp. Gase works closely with quarterbacks and saw enough potential to want to keep them around. ÂYou talk about that being one of the most important positions,ÂŽ Gase said, Âand our thought process is weÂre going to try to develop guys and get them ready to go. And if weÂre ever in a situation where we need the next guy, we want to make sure we have the right guy. And weÂre going to keep working with the two guys weÂve got.ÂŽ In other roster moves, Miami claimed receiver Tanner McEvoy off waivers from New Orleans, released tackle Sam Young, and placed center Jake Brendel and linebacker Mike Hull on injured reserve.Dolphins keep 3 QBs, battle for backup job continues NFL PREVIEW: Chicago Bears NFL PREVIEW: Miami Dolphins NSCAR: Southern 500DARLINGTON, S.C.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Monday, September 3, 2018 ÂFirst of all, I served really, really well today,ÂŽ Thiem said. ÂNot the best percentage, but I almost made every point in the Â“rst serve game. So I didnÂt face one break point, and I didnÂt feel so much pressure on service games.ÂŽ Thiem reached his Â“rst quarterÂ“nal at any Grand Slam besides the French Open. He was agonizingly close to getting there last year at the U.S. Open, leading by two sets against Juan Martin del Potro in the round of 16 before the 2009 champion roared back to win. ÂIt was not on my mind, but I was pretty close last year,ÂŽ Thiem said. ÂIt was very painful.ÂŽ Del Potro was on SundayÂs night schedule, facing Borna Coric. John Isner or Milos Raonic would meet the winner of that match. Serena Williams was in action later Sunday after routing her sister on Friday in what she felt was her best match since her return to tennis. SheÂll need to be sharp again, with Kaia Kanepi looking to knock out another womenÂs star. Serena, seeded 17th, routed Venus 6-1, 6-2 in matching the most-lopsided victory in the Williams sistersÂ series. That put her into the match against Kanepi, the 44th-ranked Estonian who upset top-ranked Simona Halep in the Â“rst round and is seeking her second consecutive quarterÂ“nal in Flushing Meadows.

Though the both offenses were virtually non-existent, the Bobcat defense was stout and suffocating. The Bobcats (1-1) forced two turnovers early in the second half to turn the tides of the game with one recovered in the end zone by senior Josh Hogue for the gameÂs second touchdown. The offense showed Â”ashes against Port Charlotte a week earlier, but Friday showed it could be a work in progress for the time being. TheyÂll have a lot to tweak over their bye week this week. The Tarpons knocked off struggling Gibbs High School up in my neck of the woods, but werenÂt quite as dominant as I Â“gured theyÂd be Â„ not to get nit-picky on a team thatÂs 2-0 with a quality win over Dunbar to open the season. Charlotte (2-0) beat Gibbs 28-0 and used the game to kick the tires on its passing game, giving power back Jayden Grant some rest, causing him to fall short of my 200yard prediction. To wrap up the night, Venice (1-1) avoided an 0-2 start to their state championship defense with a 19-2 win over Riverview and will get to tame Grant next week against Charlotte. For those listening to the inaugural Sun Sports podcast on Thursday, me and Venice sports editor Vinnie Portell went 5-0 with out picks, just to brag a bit. Outside of football their were plenty of events going on around town. In volleyball, Port Charlotte (5-1, 1-0) dropped its Â“rst match of the season to Fort Myers, but opened district play with a 3-1 win over Lakewood Ranch. The Pirates will matchup next with Lemon Bay on Tuesday on the road. The Matas won both of itÂs matches last week. After two losses to start the season, North Port is on a four-match win streak while Charlotte dropped both matches last week. Highlighting the other sports, the Tarpon boys swim team took third at the CHS mini invite Saturday with senior Josh Eaton taking the 50-meter freestyle. The girls also Â“nished in third with Karys Nelson getting a share of the win in the 100-meter freestyle.WEEKFROM PAGE 1 four games. Patrick ran for 748 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games. When he opted to return for his senior season, Patrick cemented FSUÂs status of having the best 1-2 punch at tailback in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But the Seminoles also have Laborn, a Â“ve-star prospect who took a redshirt year last fall, as well as Rasul and Grant. Taggart has teased he plans to use all Â“ve against No. 20 Virginia Tech. How Virginia Tech handles Florida StateÂs rushing attack also remains to be seen. The Hokies were 15th in the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2017, allowing just 119.5 yards rushing per game and a paltry seven rushing touchdowns in 13 games. Virginia Tech is rebuilding on defense after losing eight starters, including a pair of Â“rst-round draft picks in linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and defensive back Terrell Edmunds. The Hokies will start three sophomore linebackers, a group that has combined for just four college tackles. ItÂs one of the least experienced defenses since coordinator Bud Foster arrived at the school in 1987. ÂAre they a group that learns with reps, or can they handle that on the Â”y?ÂŽ Foster said. ÂThatÂs something that weÂll need to Â“nd out as we progress.ÂŽ Complicating matters for the Hokies is a lack of video of TaggartÂs offense at Florida State to review. The coaches have analyzed the SeminolesÂ spring game and also picked apart Â“lm from TaggartÂs former team (Oregon) as well as offensive coordinator Walt BellÂs former team (Maryland). ÂThe good news is that, when itÂs the Â“rst game, youÂve got plenty of time to comb through all of that,ÂŽ Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said. ÂThe bad news is that you havenÂt seen those two things together.ÂŽ Here are some other things to watch as the schools meet for the Â“rst time since 2012: TAGGART VS. FUENTE, PART V : Fuente is 4-0 against Taggart, going back to when they were college quarterbacks in Kentucky. Fuente passed for 358 yards and two TDs as Murray State defeated Western Kentucky 36-31 in 1998 (Taggart had 104 yards passing, 104 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns). As head coaches, FuenteÂs Memphis teams won three games against TaggartÂs USF teams from 2013-15. ÂHe turned the Memphis job around,ÂŽ Taggart said of Fuente. ÂAnd then to be able to go to Virginia Tech in the Â“rst year (2016) to play in the ACC championship game, it says a lot about who he is as a coach and what he stands for.ÂŽ BACK AT QUARTERBACK: Francois threw for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions as a freshman before injuring his knee in the 2017 opener and undergoing season-ending surgery. ÂJust thankful to be playing the game,ÂŽ Francois said. ÂIt was a long road with ups and downs. It is a blessing.ÂŽ LONGTIME ASSISTANTS: The college coaching profession is nomadic, but Foster and Florida State defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins are rare exceptions. Foster has been a Hokies assistant since 1987 and has been the defensive coordinator for more than two decades. Haggins is beginning his 25th season as a Seminoles assistant and went 2-0 as interim head coach in 2017 after Jimbo FisherÂs departure for Texas A&M. HONORARY CAPTAINS: Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden and former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer will be honorary captains. Bowden guided the Seminoles to 14 straight top-Â“ve Â“nishes in The Associated Press poll from 1987-2000, leading them to national titles in 1993 and Â99 Â„ including a win over Beamer and the Hokies in the 2000 Sugar Bowl to clinch the title. Beamer won 238 games at Virginia Tech from 1987-2015.STATEFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTO In this Oct. 14, 2017 photo, Florida StateÂs Cam Akers (3) carries the ball as Jeremy McDue (9) attempts a tackle during the Â“rst half of an NCAA college football game in Durham, N.C.
