Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 3 COUNTY NEWS POLK COUNTY … There were three errors that were published last week. In our story with the headline, Gene Heath fired as head of PRWC,Ž we admit that the use of the word fired in the headline and in the copy was our interpretation of what happened. A more accurate way to describe what happened may have been, Gene Heath retires suddenly.Ž Last week the Winter Haven Sun received some feedback on this story. Some praised the reporting. One person said he was appalled at what has been published about the Polk Regional Water Cooperative of late. We stand by our investigative reporting and we are in possession of evidence to back up what has been reported. Said story teased several additional water articles to winterhavensun.com last week. We decided not to publish these yet. Our second error was in reference to a story with a headline, Bartow power bills lowest in state, Duke Energy near highest.Ž The article said that a Bartow power rate reduction in March was the first ever. That is not true according to City Manager George Long. Long said the first ever Bartow power reduction rate was in 2010 when the city ended their 50+ year relationship with Progress Energy (now Duke Energy) and started buying power in bulk from another supplier. In our story, School board seeking renewal of half cent sales tax,Ž we linked readers to PolkPromise.com for more information. The county website is PolkPromise.net. Corrections As I am sure you are well aware, June 1st marks the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, and it really cant be said too much, you need to be prepared. Many Floridians became complacent after a decade-long stretch of relatively low hurricane activity, and by the time Hurricane Irma approached the state last September, we witnessed mad scrambling for supplies. The Florida Legislature is again giving everyone a little incentive to be prepared „ a tax break. Between June 1st and June 7th, storm-related supplies can be purchased tax-free. The list of eligible tax-free items includes ashlights, candles, and lanterns (under $20), batteries and coolers (under $30), radios, tarps, tie-downs, and straps (under $50), and portable generators under $750. A complete list of qualifying items exempted from tax during this time is available at Florida Department of Revenues website at www.FloridaRevenue.com. By preparing now, before any threat of a dangerous storm, you can ensure that youll have everything you need if, and when the time comes. You can avoid those last-minute runs to stores hoping to get what you need, and dealing with a large number of people doing the same thing. Preparing doesnt end with supplies. While the vast majority of us shelter in place, if you are in a ood prone area or you live in a manufactured home, you need to have a plan for a possible evacuation, so if the need arises, you and your family can leave at a moments notice. When making those plans dont forget to consider what youll be doing with your pets, too. So be like a Boy Scout, be prepared.

Page 4 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 THE EDUCATION CONNECTION Its no secret Polk County schools, like districts everywhere, struggle to nd good teaching candidates. This year alone, some 800 new instructors have been hired, with dozens and dozens of spots still needing to be lled by the start of school in August. What is less well known is Polk State Colleges EPI … which stands for Educator Preparation Institute … an online competency-based certication program that oers a state-approved pathway to a five-year Florida Professional Teaching Certicate for individuals who hold bachelors degrees in any discipline from a regionally-accredited college or university. Through the EPI, teacher candidates with teaching aspirations can receive teacher certications, giving them the skills they need to become high-qualied teachers in a fraction of the time and cost required for a traditional education degree. The average candidate completes the program to receive their Florida Professional Teaching Certicate in less than one year, Polk State ocials indicated. Two local residents are testament to the institute, and its life-changing impact. Breezi Hicks is Local Education Agency Facilitator at Auburndale Senior High School. She serves as a quasi-compliance ocer for Exceptional Student Education studen ts, ensuring that their Individualized Education Plans are being followed and that they are receiving the support they need to be successful in school. Hicks is a career changerŽ who spent 15 years as an attorney in juvenile law before she decided in 2015 that she wanted to become an educator. She explained that she had many special education clients, thus a special place in her heart for ESE students. In October 2015, she decided to serve as a substitute teacher to see if she truly wanted to pursue her new career path. I thought I wasnt going to like it, but it was a natural t,Ž Hicks said. The process to becoming a teacher, however, had a lot of moving parts. I thought really hard about whether it was really going to be worth it to make the transition, but I decided it was my passion and that I was going to jump through all of the hoops to achieve it.Ž Polk States EPI eased the transition for Hicks, who learned about the program from her sister, who had completed EPI. Its online and very exible,Ž Hicks said. I was able to download all of the material, which I still use today in the job.Ž She dedicated 10 hours a week to the program, which she said gave her all of the skills she needed to be successful. Although the courses arent face-to-face, Hicks said she doesnt feel like she missed out on any part of the learning process, adding that the instructors are friendly and helpful. Another perk, she said, is that the cost of the program includes books and materials. Before she became the schools LEA Facilitator, PSC helps schools expedite teaching hiring effort PHOTOS PROVIDED Michael Flood and Breezi Hicks both used Polk State College Educator Preparation Institute to get their Floirda teaching certicates in short order after deciding to make mid-life career changes. Polk County Public Schools community partnership school initiative has taken a signicant step forward with the hiring of its director. Were absolutely thrilled by the huge step forward our community school initiative has taken,Ž said Superintendent Jacqueline M. Byrd. The community partnership school will provide invaluable resources tailored to the surrounding neighborhood. It will improve the lives of students, families, and the entire community by putting healthcare and social services right where theyre needed most. I welcome the new director, Andrea Hagan, and I applaud all of our partners, who are making the community school idea a reality for Polk County.Ž Polk County Public Schools will pilot its community partnership school program at Crystal Lake Elementary this fall. The aptly named program is made possible through the collaboration of ve organizations, including the school district, Heartland for Children, Central Florida Health Care, Southeastern University and United Way of Central Florida. Polk Vision has also been instrumental in facilitating the project and will continue working directly with the core partners in aligning resources to support the students, families and residents of the Crystal Lake community. Modeled after similar programs in Hillsborough and Orange counties, Polk County Public Schools community partnership school will serve as a hub for education, healthcare and social services not only for students and their parents, but also members of the surrounding community. Crystal Lake Elementary was selected to host the rst community partnership school program in Polk County based on a number of factors, including existing community partnerships, the physical space to create a health clinic and to sustain future growth, and the publics ability to access services at the site. The community partnership school program at Crystal Lake Elementary will be implemented in phases beginning in the 2018-19 school year, and will be based on the needs of the children, families and members of the surrounding community,Ž said Teri Saunders, CEO of Heartland for Children. Andrea Hagan has been selected as the director of community partnership schools. Hagan has nearly three decades of social services experience.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 5 WINTER HAVEN … Attorneys representing Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and downtown Winter Havens iconic Ritz Theatre will be facing o at the courthouse in Bartow July 31. On March 12 Bondi led legal paperwork requesting a judge to temporarily close the theater, remove Stella Heath as executive director, appoint a receiver (a third party) to take over administrative duties and appoint a team of independent accountants to review the books at the theater. The legal problem for Ritz supporters has been ongoing since February 2017 when a group of Winter Haven area residents, who call themselves Friends of the Ritz, signed a petition alleging that Heath and a former Ritz board president led a criminally fraudulent $250,000 lien the month prior. Through their lawyers, Heath and her board have claimed that for years the theater has been struggling nancially and that Heath has not been paid regularly, and in some cases, she has used her own personal money to make mortgage payments for the theater. The attorneys representing the Ritz said the $250,000 lien was payable to Heath if she is terminated, if the Ritz mortgage is renanced, if the Ritz is dissolved, or if the Ritz board is dissolved. Shortly after the Friends of the Ritz signed the petition, State Attorney Brian Haas began a ve-month investigation of Heath and the Ritz board. Haas concluded that there was probable cause of obstruction of justice through the use of simulated legal process but insucient evidence to satisfy the states burden of proof at trial of beyond a reasonable doubt. In July Haas referred the case to the state attorney general for review. The Ledger sta published an editorial March 24 describing the state attorneys nal report as, a blistering report, scolding the theaters managers for lousy record keeping, a disinterested board, a history of questionable nancial decisions and a breach in the duciary duties of its ocers.Ž Attorneys representing Heath and the Ritz board had 30 days to respond to Bondis March 12 petition. That response was published recently by the clerk of court. In their response, the Ritz lawyers say that the attorney general does not have the legal authority to intervene because there has been no statutory or common law anti-trust violation or other independent wrong. It requires no great insight to recognize that left unchecked by this court, the complaint works as a Kafkaesque exercise in unrestrained overreaching by a government body seeking (at the behest of persons unknown) to intervene in the management of a lawfully operating largely volunteer-supported not-f or-prot theater organization,Ž the Ritz lawyers wrote in their response. Apparently the crooks, frauds, cheats, and never-ending parade of illegal actors in this state that would normally justify the expenditure of limited state prosecutorial resources have gone wanting. Unrestrained by a judicial check on state power, the complaint works to intimidate, harass and ultimately run o a staer under the sheer burden of litigation.Ž The Ritz lawyers further questioned why the attorney general is concerned about Ritz grants not being obtained, theater seats not lled, weddings and bar mitzvahs too few.Ž The Ritz lawyers are seeking a motion to dismiss because, There is no allegation that Heath committed fraud. There is no allegation that Heath committed a crime. There is no allegation directly related to Heaths actions or inactions that would constitute a violation of law or that used the corporate entity for some improper purpose.Ž In their response the Ritz lawyers made a nal point writing, the government does not sit as a supervisory personnel board charged with overseeing workers or that reexamines an entitys business decisions.Ž Stay tuned. The Winter Haven Sun will continue to follow this legal battle.Ritz Theatre fate to be decided July 31WRITTEN BY CHARLES A BAKER IIICBAKER@SCMGINC.COM PHOTO BY CHARLES A BAKER III Friends of the Ritz say that the iconic theater is being under utilized. Lawyers representing the Ritz are questioning whether it is the responsibility for the Florida Attorney General to do something about that.

Page 6 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 of Union Academy in Bartow to think of times further past. They demanded from us excellence,Ž Grimes said. (Union Academy staff) required at a time of segregation in this country that we would always work. We were always told that we had to be superstars just to be considered average. Union Academy is the home of champions, home of the Tigers.Ž Grimes said Union Academy sta helped him get through law school, be published as an author and eventually become a leader at Bethune-Cookman University. (At Bethune-Cookman University there are) examples upon examples of people who have broken the glass ceiling who have in fact not been limited by their circumstances, by their situations, by their racial background, nor where they come from, but instead people who are making a dierence not just in this life but in generations to come,Ž Grimes said. So tonight I humbly accept this recognition. What better place to be recognized than here at home.Ž Grimes challenged the graduates in attendance to transform the next generation. Commander Terry Chauncey retired from the U.S. Navy in 2013 with 33 years of active duty, 18 at sea, 11 with submarine units and seven years of submerged service. A 1978 graduate of Mulberry High School, Commander Chauncy has advised three U.S. presidents including service as the White House Director of Administration under George W. Bush. It all started in Polk County. His mother started as a secretary for the school board and retired after 30 years as a payroll administrator. His sister is a longtime county teacher and now is an assistant principal in Lakeland. He has a niece working as a teacher in Bartow. He said his wife teaches as well. Commander Chauncey said he remembered summer jobs washing Polk County school buses and that his family wanted him to go to college. I love my parents dearly but their dream was not my dream,Ž Chauncey told the graduating students in attendance. He quit college after his rst year and joined the Navy as a lowest of the lowŽ seaman recruit. He scraped barnacles and wound up sitting on President Jimmy Carters porch drinking tea and talking submarines years later. Do what makes you happy,Ž he told the graduates. Commander Chauncey is now a personnel director who oversees tens of thousands of employees. Joyce Conoly-Simmons 2011 retired from the City College of New York after 43 years of service to the institution. She was unable to attend the Hall of Fame Ceremony but her babyŽ brother James Conoly accepted the award on her behalf. In a video taped speech, Conoly-Simmons said she was awe struck to be named amongst such a highly accomplished list of other inductees. Their father frank James Conoly was the founding principal at what is now Mulberry Middle School. Conoly-Simmons is a 1961 graduate of Rochelle High School in Lakeland. The nal speech of the ceremony was given by Winter Haven Hospital Foundation President and CEO Joel L. Thomas, whose wife Julie is an assistant principal in Ft. Meade. We believe we are making a dierence with help from people like you. People who understand the value of giving back to the community that has given so much to us.Ž Since 2002, Thomas said foundation assets have grown from zero to $18M this year and in that same time, foundation funds helped to establish the Bostic Heart center, the Cassidy Cancer Center, the Winter Haven Hospital Surgical Robotics Institute, additional technology for the Winter Haven Hospital Womens Hospital, and with help from State Farm, the recent opening of the Winter Haven Hospital Multispecialty Health complex on Cypress Gardens Boulevard. Thomas said all that growth pales in comparison to the eight years of planning that it took to create the FSU College of Medicine Family Medicine Residency Program at Winter Haven Hospital. This is a landmark initiative for us to do,Ž Thomas said. Construction plans are complete for the Academic Training Clinic and leadership and faculty are starting to be identied.Ž Once complete, the clinic will train 18 physicians per year who afterward would primarily focus on serving around 14k local patients with limited insurance annually. Thomas said the total economic impact of the clinic, once opened, would be $25M in the rst ve years of operation. Parents and teachers brought us to this dance tonight,Ž Thomas told the graduating seniors in attendance.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 7 POLK COUNTY … School board member Billy Townsend, a former reporter who is now in his rst term on the school board, published a blog post May 26 alleging that Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd, her administrative sta and long-time school board members Kay Fields and Tim Harris have done nothing to stop the districts decade-long deferenceŽ to a school principal investigated twice for sexual misconduct and his wife, a guidance counselor who accused a teacher of battery last year. The story behind the May 26 blog posts dates back to July 2017, when Townsend said several teachers, sta and students at Tenoroc High School contacted him concerning the ring of Tenoroc assistant principal Brandi Garcia Blanchard by principal Jason Looney. Townsend said he reached out to Garcia Blanchard to learn more and Garcia Blanchard told him that she had been sexually harassed by Looney, and that when she turned him away, she was punished, red and her unemployment claim was initially denied. Townsend said he brought this to the attention of school sta and there was an investigation that was closed as not substantiatedŽ in November. Garcia Blanchard has since reportedly led sexual harassment allegations with the EEOC. Looney was previously investigated for sexual harassment in 2010 while working as assistant principal at George Jenkins High School. That investigation was closed as not sustained.Ž In the process of his research, Townsend said Looney was alleged to have had multiple marital aairs with school sta, a witness to sex on campus desks, and students reportedly asking questions about Looney taking one of his assistant principals home alone after prom night last summer. His wife, Laquita Johnson-Looney was also part of the 2010 allegations against her husband. She was accused of reacting to the drama involving her husband by involving co-workers or lashing out at them.Ž Townsend wrote. The Looneys deny all wrongdoing.Ž On May 31, 2017 as a guidance counselor at Southwest Elementary, Johnson-Looney told a Lakeland Police ocer that a teacher, pushed her forward in which she had to brace herself on the le cabinet.Ž That allegation could not be corroborated and on May 4 of this year, the state attorney dropped all charges. In my opinion as a board member, we should not outsource hard HR administration work to the police,Ž Townsend wrote. In the summer of 2017 while Looney was under investigation, Townsend said Looney held a mandatory meeting with school board member Tim Harris, who told teachers involved in the sexual harassment investigation that he supported Looney. Harris Is not running for re-election nor is long time school board member Hazel Sellers. Townsend was also critical of long-time school board member Kay Fields who is running for election against Jennifer Sabin and Terry Clark. This has ceased to be a Looney issue,Ž It is a Polk County Schools institutional leadership issue,Ž Townsend wrote. You can read his blog at www.billytownsend. com. The newspaper emailed Harris, Fields and the school board press secretary on Memorial Day for comment. According to Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd, she stands behind Looney and her team of internal investigators. As with any allegation of employee misconduct, Polk County Public Schools promptly and thoroughly investigated the claims against Mr. Looney,Ž Byrd said. The investigations found that there was insufficient evidence for disciplinary action. I stand behind the work of my internal investigators. I remain, as always, committed to creating a positive, safe working environment for all of our employees. Any allegation of employee misconduct will be taken seriously, responded to swiftly, and investigated fully.Ž School board member Kay Fields said she making unreasonable allegations or assumptions would not be wise. I take very seriously my role as a board member representing the voters and the citizens of Polk County,Ž Fields said. I also understand that I am one of seven board members responsible for providing leadership and policy direction to the superintendent and her team. I further understand that if board policy in matters such as these needs to addressed and changed that is where my attention should be focused.Ž As of press time, there was no response from Tim Harris.Townsend takes aim at Byrd, Fields, Harris againWRITTEN BY CHARLES A BAKER IIICBAKER@SCMGINC.COM PHOTO BY CHARLES A BAKER III Billy Townsend is not afaid of taking risks and speaking his mind.

Page 8 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 On Thursday, May 24, 2018, 35-year-old Suzanne Gracia, a licensed practical nurse employed by Corizon Health working in the Polk County Jail, was arrested for giving a cell phone to an inmate. Gracia, who resides in Avon Park, has been employed by Corizon since November of 2014 and has worked in the South County Jail during her entire career. The phone was found on inmate Julio Ruiz during a search of his cell on May 21st. Ruiz told deputies that it was Gracia who brought the phone into the jail. An examination of the phone and its usage showed that it had primarily been used by inmates Fernando Olvera-Gonzalez and Simon Ramos. Both men also identied Gracia as the one who provided the phone. Olvera-Gonzalez also showed deputies love letters which he claimed were given to him by Gracia. In the letters, SueŽ mentions how her husband is in prison, and told OlveraGonzalez to nd her when he is released from jail. Gracia admitted to investigators that she wrote the letters, and had brought the cell phone into the jail and gave it to Olvera-Gonzalez. A cell phone in the jail presents a security risk, and can ultimately place anyone in the jail in danger.

This annual map is designed to assist both resident and tourist evacuees in finding shelter during an impending storm. In the event a hurricane threatens Central Florida, we will work closely with our accommodations partners to determine the supply of available rooms. This information is critical in helping evacuees nd lodging. We want our guests to have a safe and pleasant experience, in spite of the circumstances,Ž said Mark Jackson, director of Polk County Tourism and Sports Marketing (PCTSM). PCTSM relays this vital information to Polk County Emergency Management (PCEM) and area lodging facilities. PCEM uses this data to decide when and where to open shelters, once area accommodations reach capacity. Evacuees can then be directed to open shelters using the Polk County Public SheltersŽ map, which lists shelter locations on one side and directions to those shelters on the other. The map also provides sources of emergency information, important telephone numbers and a list of recommended items to include in a 3-Day Survival KitŽ. The 2018 map includes 47 shelters, three of which are designated as Special Needs SheltersŽ for residents with medical or physical conditions that would require special assistance during an emergency. Preregistration is recommended, by contacting Polk County Emergency Management at (863) 298-7027. Three additional shelters have been designated as Pet FriendlyŽ with pets being limited to dogs, cats and birds only. Specific requirements apply at Pet FriendlyŽ shelters, so it is advised to check those requirements in advance. It should be noted that not every shelter may be opened during a particular storm, so evacuees are advised to conrm that a specic shelter has been activated prior to going there. The public shelters maps are available at Central Floridas Visitor Information Center, located at 101 Adventure Court, Davenport, mile south of I-4 on Highway 27; and at Publix Super Markets in Polk County by the end of May. The map, printed in blue this year, contains updated information for 2018. Businesses and residents are advised to discard older maps of dierent colors. Area lodging facilities and chambers of commerce will also have maps on hand in the event of a storm.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 9 BARTOW … Fifteen area residents graduated from the 19th Annual Polk County Problem Solving Court May 24. According to 10th Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Donald G. Jacobsen, problem solving courts nationwide are relatively new to the judicial system and they are working to reduce revolving doors associated with addiction.Ž Problem Solving Court is a court-supervised, comprehensive treatment program for nonviolent defendants according to the court website. Defendants have regular court appearances in front of a judge and treatment includes drug testing, counseling and regular attendance at support group meetings. Lots dont think the courts should be involved in social functioning and treatment,Ž Jacobsen said during the ceremony. Here in the 10th Circuit we have invested lots of time and manpower into this. We believe it works but the jury is still out.Ž Dr. Jason Fields was keynote speaker. Dr. Fields said that in his early 30s over the course of four years, he went from being a busy pediatrician to unemployed. First, hed do drugs on the weekends. Then on call one night, he went to work stoned and the mother of a child he treated that night complained the following day. For around 10 years Dr. Fields said he was in and out of treatment during which time he had multiple relapses. With help from a program similar to Problem Solving Court, he was able to get his medical license back. Now 49, he helps others to recover. Three of the participants were given the opportunity to speak during the graduation ceremony. RebeccaŽ previously graduated from Problem Solving Court and she told the current graduates to create boundaries away from those with negative inuence. She thanked her case manager Rafael Hernandez and drug court lab sta Carrie Shealey for help turning her life around. ThomasŽ graduated last week and he thanked God and his case manager Nancy Bush for giving him a second chance. JuanŽ is still in the program and shared his story about how getting caught driving drunk damaged his life and how appreciative he is for those who help helped him since. Polk County Problem Solving Court Presiding Judge Susan Barber described participants as those who have tremendous courage and strength through adversity.

We will give him a sendo.Ž According to the federal government, Col. Stewart was shot down on March 15, 1966. He was the pilot of a two-seater F-4C aircraft, the second in a ight of two on an armed reconnaissance mission over northern Vietnam. The lead pilot spotted two vehicles and Col. Stewart said he was going to strafe the trucks. According to the lead pilot he saw a bright orange explosion and no parachutes or emergency call for help. Initially, the government listed him as missing, but he was later pronounced deceased. Col. Stewarts name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacic in Honolulu along with others unaccounted for from the Vietnam War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for. Col. Peter J.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 11 BENEATH THE CHINABERRY TREE For the casual observer one might never know that for nearly 100 years the railroad ran directly through the heart of downtown Winter Haven. Along about the 1880s, just after F.A.K. Harris and wife Adele moved here and built the rst commercial and residential structure, the Southern Railway was building the line through here. In fact, Mrs. Harris cooked for the railroad construction workers and for a brief time they referred to the village as Harris Corners. From about 1883 through 1961 both passengers and freight through the downtown railway station situated across 4th Street from the Times Square building (original Snell Bank). According to local railroad historian, Sam DeVito, the last freight train rolled through Central Park about 1979. DeVitos father was the station master in Lake Alfred. During the 1980s the railroad moved to dispose of the unused downtown line and a creative arrangement was struck that saw Winter Haven gifted with a greenbelt (former rail bed) from downtown to Lake Alfred. Bowen Brothers, a Winter Haven Company, was instrumental in arranging the gift of this property. We know it today as the Chain of Lakes Trail and it will one day soon link to an elaborate series of trails that will allow hiking and biking throughout Central Florida from coast to coast. Many former rail routes have been converted for public use through the Rails to TrailsŽ program. Our city sta successfully sought state grant monies to make the Chain of Lakes Trail a reality. When passenger service stopped downtown in 1961, Atlantic Coast Line service was moved to the station on Seventh Street, SW now used by Amtrak passengers. For many years, just across the tracks from the Amtrak Station, stood the mothballed Seaboard Airline Station south of W. G. Roe operations. That building featured a tower which DeVito noted contained levers that allowed a railroad employee to perform switching operations overlooking the rail yard. The downtown route today would be directly through the Chamber of Commerce breezeway and on through the Central Park fountain continuing on through Fire Station #1 further to the south. Many will remember when the Florida Citrus Exposition was held on Third Street N.W. between Lake Silver and Avenue D. For many years the James E. Strates Show train would park on a siding between where the Garden Center building is now located and Avenue E. NW. At one time a combined total of 16 passenger and freight trains rumbled through downtown each day. We appreciate the assistance of Sam DeVito in providing a chronology of Winter Havens railroad history. The Museum of Winter Haven History is now closed for the summer. Group visits are always available by appointment.

Page 12 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 WINTER HAVEN … Winter Haven City Manager Mike Herr recommended to the Winter Haven City Commission to vote for nal plat approval for Lake Ashton West Phase II North at a recent agenda review meeting. In laymans terms, Lake Ashton, a gated community near Eagle Ridge Mall on SR653 or Thompson Nursery Road, is expanding. A plat, in this instance, is a drawn to scale map identifying property lines. The commission and city planners must approve them before construction can begin. According to the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce blog, the Lake Ashton developers are seeking to add a new $250M subdivision there called, The Preserve at Ashton.Ž The new subdivision will include 423 additional single family homes, 750 apartments and townhomes, an assisted living facility and manyŽ commercial retail locations. According to City of Winter Haven Principal Planner Sean Byers, using an estimated value of $180k per lot, this project would generate $73k per year in additional property taxes. The Winter Haven general contractor rm of Carson Consulting and Development, LLC will be doing much of the building. The city manager also recommended the commission vote to apply for state grant funding to help oset the cost of renovating the Winter Haven Womans Club, which is in need of some repairs. The grant would require the city to pay half of the renovation costs. The city manager also made a recommendation to move forward with a FDOT contract to start a $6.3M project to widen SR542 or Dundee Road from First Street to Buckeye Loop Road. City Manager Herr said it will take around 850 days to complete the project and that when its done, there will also be a mile-long walking trail connecting Lake Elbert to the downtown area. The city will have to pay around $3M to move and upgrade a water main in the process. Money to expand Dundee Road from Buckeye Loop Road to US27 is not budgeted yet, Herr said. A vote on all of these agenda items took place after press time May 29.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 13 POLK COUNTY SPORTS A SPRING SENSATION … There arent many more respected football programs in the Sunshine State, so when Lake Wales tipped American Heritage Plantation last week, 2114, in the Spring Game for both schools, it was a little eye brow raising. The win was capped with an impressive last-minute goalline stand which helped preserve the eorts of running backs Norman Love (77 yard TD run) and Johnny Richardson (33 yard scoring romp). The Highlander other score came on a nifty catch and run by James Bundrage. HORNETS STUNG … Haines Citys Spring Game didnt go quite as well, as they fell 26-16 to Dixie Hollins High. A slow start doomed the Hornets, who lost the handle on the pigskin four times in the rst quarter alone. Quarterback Dawson Green had a seven-yard TD run, while the Hornets other points came on a 35-yard scamper by Damione Motley. HIGHLANDERS HALTED … The Lake Wales softball team saw its hopes of a third ever state softball title stall in the semi-nals. After waiting more than a week from the originally scheduled date with American Heritage (we told you they were pretty good at sports, just about all of them), the Highlanders fell 3-0. Zayla McBurrows had two of the three Lake Wales hits, and also pitched in relief in the seventh inning, coming on with the bases loaded and did not allow a run to score. Lake Wales ended the spring at 17-13, and is losing only one senior starter.

Page 14 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 LAKE WALES NEWS LAKE WALES … City ocials are hopeful there may be a least a partial remedy to concerns over intersection changes at ThompsonNursery Road which has made accessing businesses on the northwest side of U.S. 27 signicantly more dicult and dangerous in recent weeks. In conjunction with the construction of a new Aldis Market on the southwest corner of U.S. 27, a raised concrete median was added on Thompson Nursery road leading up to the intersection with the six-lane highway, cutting o direct left-turn access to a Walgreens Drug Store located across the street from the Aldis. We woke up one morning, and there was a median leading into Walgreens. Thats really the way it happened, and none of us knew that it was going to happen,Ž said former city commissioner Pete Perez, who is also a Lake Ashton resident. Im concerned with that personally because it is dicult; 27 is a terrible place anyway, and youll see an increase in senior accidents because theyre going to look for ways to circumvent that. We have to be sensitive to that as a very serious issue.Ž The sudden change means many nearby homeowners, including those at Lake Ashton, The Traditions, Teranova and other large scale residential developments in the area, must now turn left at U.S. 27, make a U-turn, and then attempt to cross three lanes of trac in several hundred yards to access Walgreens, where many get their prescriptions lled. These being senior citizens, believe me, that would have been one of the most dangerous situations you could ever have trying to do U-turns on 27,Ž Mayor Gene Fultz noted. City Planning Director Kathy Bangley has spearheaded conversations with the county and state to see what might be done to improve the situation. If they change it its going to be a very little bit to allow somebody to go left, in. You are still going to be restricted to not go left when you go out. Theyre not going to allow people to dive across ve lanes of trac, and add delivery trucks to a grocery store,Ž Bangley noted. Id be cautiously optimistic there will be a way to go in traveling eastbound.Ž She also said the whole incident has prompted the city to make sure they are aware of county and state plans for Chalet Suzanne Road where a new Wawa gas station is being built at the same time as the Aldis is going up. So far, no road changes have happened on that side of the busy intersection. This intersection is going from having activity on just the two north corners to activity on all four corners,Ž she added. Its a busy intersection without the additional development. No one really anticipated the reaction. Im hopeful we will get a good solution, but we know we will not make everybody happy.Ž Since Thompson-Nursery is a county road, city leaders said they were not aware that the barrier was being put in, but have been in close contact with county and state Department of Transportation officials … since getting many complaints … about seeking a remedy for the inconvenienced residents. The problem is while theyve reacted to the safety concerns that Aldi would create, in the process theyve messed up the shopping center in terms of access into and egress out of it.

Page 16 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 When Bok Academy North welcomes 200 new sixth graders this August, the Lake Wales Charter Schools system will be going back to its original roots. When the system welcomed middle school students for the rst time in August, 2008, their permanent home on U.S. 27 … the former site of Warner University which had by that time moved across the highway … wasnt quite ready to be occupied. So for the rst few months that year, then principal Donna Dunson and about 30 teachers and sta held classes in two downtown Lake Wales churches, First Baptist and First Presbyterian, which opened their doors to the almost 400 students that made up the initial sixth, seventh and eighth grade classes. By early December, everyone made the nal move to their home on the west shore of Crooked Lake, after nearly $2 million in renovation work was nished to the former college buildings. Bok North will follow a somewhat similar path while nding a permanent home. Come August, 200 sixth graders will be enrolled in the school … once again using space at Lake Wales First Baptist Church „ which is designed to fully duplicate the success of its sister campus a few miles to the south. Only a sixth grade class will initially be enrolled this fall, noted Superintendent Dr. Jesse Jackson, with additional new sixth grade classes in each of the following two years to bring Bok North to capacity. The most common applicants are the students entering sixth grade. There are typically as many as six hundred applicants vying for the two hundred sixth grade vacancies. This year, with the approval of the Bok North Application, approximately 400 sixth grade students will be selected from the pool of sixth grade applicants,Ž Dr. Jackson said. School ocials said the curriculum at the two schools will be the same, and that students at Bok North will share resources and be included with events and programs oered at the current school. The application process is currently reopened through Thursday, May 30 for anyone who has not previously applied, or for those who might be requesting a campus change. The current Bok South list of accepted students was compiled before final approval was given to a North campus, ocials added. Students accepted for Bok North who might want to apply for a campus change to get on the Bok South waiting list can also do so this week without losing their place on the North list, school ocials noted. Determining who may get picked for youngsters starting seventh or eighth grade is a little trickier. Vacancies for these grades are initially dicult to determine because the vacancy will occur only if a currently enrolled student opts out at the end of the school year or at the start of the new school year. In most cases parent of such students do not announce their intentions until the last minute,Ž Dr. Jackson said. As a result 7th and 8th grade students that are on the waiting list will not receive an acceptance or rejection letter until the deadline for communicating is reached by the current families.Ž So far, only incoming sixth-grade invitations for students on both campuses have been sent out. Seventh and 8th grade applicants were mailed letters explaining the wait list process. No 7th or 8th grade invitation have been mailed yet. Unfortunately, some of the 7th and 8th grade applicant families that received the wait list explanation responded to it as if it was a rejection letter,Ž Dr. Jackson added. The current Bok campus, which was heavily damaged by hurricane Irma last fall, will debut a brand new multi-million dollar classroom building this fall. In addition, a new administration building will be under construction at the site, after the old one was torn down this spring after it was determined storm damage was too great to simply try to renovate the structure. Adding additional options for our middle school students has been a long-stated goal of the system,Ž Dr. Jackson added. Thanks to the cooperation and support of many of our community and corporate partners, we are very excited to be able to increase our Bok student body by another 200 students this fall, providing them the same curriculum and opportunities that our South campus students have taken advantage of for 10 years now.ŽCharter schools readying for two Bok Academy sixth grade classesWRITTEN BY BRIAN ACKLEYNEWS CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDED Lake Wales native Anthony Franz works as a machinists mate serving aboard a Groton-based submarine in the U.S. Navy.

Starting May 16th, the Summer of Safety program will provide crucial transportation options throughout the summer when students are not in school. The program, the rst of its kind in the United States, will continue to be a countywide program. This years program will conclude August 18. There are a wealth of quality summer programming in Polk County, including the YMCA, YWCA, Boys & Girls Clubs, Dream Center, Learning Resource Center, Campre Girls, public libraries and pools, parks programs and a wealth of faith-based opportunities. As we welcome another summer, we know that it is not the cost of these programs that keeps children from participating, but the lack of transportation, since most households are dual-income families, meaning both cars are at work leaving the children at home, without options. For older youth, the Summer of Safety opens summer employment and internships including Publix, Legoland, GEICO and area downtown businesses. Public transit vehicles operate daily providing access to many large and small employers. A day on public transit can provide access to hundreds of potential employers.Summer of Safety Like us at: www.FB.com/winterhavensun When It Comes To Taxes... You Need An Edge!

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 19 EDITORIAL Surprising nobody, the Polk County School Board voted on May 15 to ask the countys voters to renew the existing half-cent local option sales tax for school construction and maintenance. Technically, the board asked the county commission to place the issue on the November general election ballot, but political reality is that the tax renewal will go to the public. Voters already have renewed the county commissions half-cent local option sales tax to pay for indigent healthcare, as indeed they should have. Approving the 15-year renewal of the school tax will keep the sales tax in Polk County at seven percent. It should be an easy sale. But the school board should write a provision into the proposal to forbid repeating the gae that took place when the initial tax was approved 15 years ago. Back then, the board oated a bond issue to borrow against the money that the tax would bring in, essentially mortgaging the income of future board members. It is an irresponsible, but not unusual, political ploy. It is sold on the basis that by borrowing against future revenues, government can provide needed (or wanted) improvements today, and at todays prices. It sounds plausible. But the real reason it is done is so that todays incumbent politicians can run for re-election on the basis of what theyŽ accomplished. They never mention that their achievements were paid for by borrowing against future revenues to pay todays bills.School Board: dont mortgage the futureWRITTEN BY S.L.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 21 A couple of years ago, board members were complaining „ with justication „ that there wasnt enough money to repair air conditioning systems and leaky roofs because their forebears had pledged future tax revenues to pay for current niceto-have projects. Think of it this way: how many more times could you go out to dinner if you raided your kids college fund, or how often you could tour Europe if you cashed in your retirement savings before you retired? When this newspaper interviewed candidates for school board two years ago, we asked them how they would vote on oating a bond issue against the sales tax. Few of them understood the question until we explained how the board had gotten into a pickle by bonding the tax increase revenues and borrowing the money up front. One candidate „ so help me, I am not making this up „ was not aware that bond issues have to be repaid. All said they would consider the ramications of bonding a tax increase. The only way that commitment can be kept is to write a provision into the tax increase ordinance forbidding the bonding of future revenues. If they fail to do so, both they and future boards will have the opportunity to do so. And trust me: they will. Fifteen years ago, the school board made a colossal mistake by mortgaging the revenues of future boards. Todays board owes their successors „ and the taxpayers „ more responsible stewardship of school tax revenues. € € € (S. L. Frisbie is retired. He generally supports the concept of local option taxes, which allow taxpayers to assess themselves for local needs. He also supports the concept that elected ocials should put public needs ahead of their own political interests. That is why the president of this newspaper company calls him the patron saint of lost causes.)FRISBIEFROM PAGE 19 Find us online at: www.WinterHavenSun.comSpencers project included replacing some 500 windows, 2,000 light fixtures and over 80,000 square feet of acoustical ceiling. That was a 24/7 job. They worked seven days a week, 14-16 hours a day, from the day school got out to the day school started,Ž their dad remembers. The only time I gave them, I gave them a half a day off on the Fourth of July.Ž They are just two of five children of Tanya and Carl Ed Locke Jr. … including daughters Adrienne and Meredith, Spencers twin, and son Hunter „ who are achieving exceptional heights in wildly diverse careers. Theyre all very different from each other, even the twins are different from each other,Ž Carl said. Thats just who they are. We had opportunities to give our children that probably a lot of us growing up didnt have, and as a result thats part of the reason theyre pretty diverse.Ž Adrienne Richardson is the oldest, at age 29, and holds a degree in historic preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduation she worked in that field in the Georgia city before returning to Polk to spend time at the construction company specializing in interior design. It got to the point where I had a number clients, and she would walk in the room, and especially the ladies, they would hug her. They loved her,Ž her father recalled. She and her husband Louis, who also is a SCAD graduate, live in Longwood. Working in the computer graphic field, some of his work is on display for Disney, including at EPCOT. The oldest son, Hunter, is a decorated Captain in the U.S. Army, and the husband of high school sweetheart Brittin. The pair are currently stationed at Ft. Benning, GA. His love of flying was nurtured in part when he would tag along with his dad on a building project at Bartow Municipal Airport. After graduating from Embry Riddle University with a degree in aeronautical sciences, he joined the Army as a full Second Lieutenant when he graduated. Since then, hes traveled to over two dozen countries, done Army Ranger challenges, joined the Cavalry Scouts (officers who serves as a commanders eyes and earsŽ during battle), is an airborne paratrooper and is even air assault qualified. Those are the guys who repel down ropes dangling from helicopters in conflict zones. He just got his captains bars earlier this month. The brigade commander started talking about Hunter and he said in his 27 years in the Army, This is the best lieutenant Ive ever had. He just fell in love with flying. Thats all he wanted to do is fly,Ž Locke recalled. Spencer is the older of the twins, having been born just seconds ahead of his sister Meredith. Hes extremely smart. He pretty much aces anything it is hes wanting to touch,Ž Locke noted. Although accepted as an alternate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he ended up in the naval ROTC program at Florida studying in the nuclear engineering program there. Ultimately, however, he decided life on a submarine was not what he wanted to do, so he switched to the construction field, graduating this spring, with a GPA over 3.8. Hes not a man of a lot of words, but he really seems to understand people in a lot of different ways,Ž Locke noted. He and Hunter both also earned the rank of Eagle Scout growing up. Meredith Wohlgemuth, a graduate this spring of Concordia University (Nebraska), was recently accepted to the Julliard School of Music in Manhattan, while at the same time her husband, Luke, will be starting at the prestigious Manhattan School of Visual Arts. She plays piano, she plays the violin, and sings,Ž Locke said, noting that her specialty caught he and his wife a little off guard. Tanya called one day and said We have to learn opera. Theyre both excited.Ž After starting his college career in Alabamas human physiology program, Duncan transferred to Polk State in the nursing program with an eye on becoming a traveling nurse. Away from work and school, his true passion is body building. Accomplished in the field at age 21, he can bench press over 500 pounds. Growing up, his punishment to make him toe the line was he could not go to the gym, and he would really get upset about that,Ž his dad remembered. He has an awesome, awesome work ethic. Every employee that I would see, from my superintendent all the way down to the tradesmen, if Duncan had been working there theyd come over to me and say Man, that Duncan is an animal. He does not stop. He studies constantly.Ž As the youngest, he is a perfect compliment to the oldest sibling. He and his older sister Adrienne are like two bookends. They go with the flow, they really dont let anything get to them,Ž their dad said. The other three can be kind of intense.Ž And for all their successes … past, present and certainly to come „ theres one galvanizing truth that Locke knows you cant reach no matter how hard they may work. Probably more than anything, what my wife and I are more proud about than anything, is they love each other tremendously,Ž he added. We didnt press them to become anything. We really tried to give them the ability to find out what they wanted to do. If you like what youre doing, then youre going to do well at it.ŽLOCKEFROM PAGE 17 2701 Havendale Blvd., Winter Haven863-967-4628 Selling used cars and trucks for over 30 years!

Today, she oversees more than 190 ESE students and a sta of nine. Her background in law and bachelors degree in Political Science benet her in her current position, she explained, because she is able to pair her passion for ESE students with her knowledge of compliance and reporting as it relates to funding for the school. I would recommend Polk States Education Preparation Institute to anyone with a passion for education and the drive to teach,Ž she said. The EPI gave me the condence in instructional strategies that I needed and gave me the foundation I need to be an educator It allows you to build your own little tool box that you can carry with you throughout your career.Ž Michael Flood shares a similar story of how the EPI has allowed him to change careers … and he hasnt even completed the program yet. Flood and his brother owned a successful construction company for 10 years. When his business partner recently decided to retire, Flood felt he was called to teach. Hes no stranger to the classroom. Flood taught in New York for nine years. Flood applied to the EPI Program in November 2017, but after passing the Florida Teacher Certication Examinations Subject Area test in history, he was hired as a teacher at Winter Haven High School. I got the job. I was stunned,Ž Flood wrote in an email to EPI Director Beverly Woolery and Program Specialist Sherri Davis. I just started my rst class at EPI earlier this week and never thought that I would land a job so quickly. I have previous teaching experience, but didnt expect this. Thank you for all the help you have given me at EPI. Now getting certied to teach and completing the EPI program is more important than ever.Ž He began his EPI classes in January and is working toward completing the rest of his other teaching requirements. Flood called the experience a whirlwind, adding that the EPI has made the transition easier than he thought it was going to be. When you are trying to get into a licensed professions, it may seem impossible,Ž Flood said, but the EPI makes the process manageable. The program has a way of shepherding its students through in a decent time while giving them all of the skills they need to be successful in the classroom. Ive learned more about teaching in the last few weeks than I have through most of my experience.Ž Among the skills he is learning, Flood noted important classroom management skills as well as the potential to use technology in the classroom. Flood plans to complete the program and receive his teaching license by the summer. Its completely doable,Ž he said. The program is exible, allowing you go at your own pace and t it into your schedule where you can.Ž Teaching also ts into his plans to continue traveling. Im passionate about teaching and Im lucky that it allows me to pursue my other passion of traveling,Ž Flood said. I want to continue bringing real-world experiences into my lessons and engage my students through my travels.Ž Woolery, EPI Director, called Flood an exemplary teaching candidate. We love to get candidates in the program who have such a passion for being in the classroom and for what they teach,Ž Woolery said. The College is empowered to nd teachers and train them to be the best they can be.ŽPSCFROM PAGE 4of projects and faithand community-based initiatives.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Page 23 Yup, deputy by day, professional football player by night. The George Jenkins graduate is actually one of two former Eagles on the team, the other being fan-favorite wideout Reggie Ellis who had one of his wall-flipping TD catches make ESPN and go viral earlier this year with over 200,000 views. Melton was a first-team All Polk defensive pick his senior year when he had 56 tackles, including 12 for lost yardage, to go along with three fumble recoveries. And his taste of professional football was far more than just a cup of coffee. He spent two years with the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League, and more recently played with the Arena Football Leagues Tampa Bay Storm. A conversation with PCSO Major Vince Monroe, who was Meltons coach at George Jenkins at the time, led him to make the difficult decision to drop the dream of the NFL. I was a young kid so in my mind, you know, I could hop onto an pro team and play. But realistically thats not possible,Ž he said about making a career decision that today he knows was the right one to make. It was battling that idea of getting on an NFL roster and getting into the real world. Thats why it was up in the air.Ž The Tarpons, a professional team that just finished up their seventh season in the indoor game and will play in Lakeland in 2019 as well, allows him to continue to play a game he loves while still doing a job he loves too. A number of his sheriffs department comrades were at last Saturdays game to cheer him on. Things Ive learned in football has made me better in law enforcement,Ž he noted. Football teaches you how to commit, how to have that pride in yourself. Thats the same thing in law enforcement. Youre uniform is looking up to par, youre groomed, you look the part. Football is the same way. If youre half-stepping it out on the football field, youre going to do the same thing in the real world. Football teaches you discipline, dedication, commitment, those are all things you transfer over.Ž Theres one other important area where the two careers intertwine closely too. Growing up, I didnt really understand the role of a police officer,Ž he said. But now that Im in the field, I see the other side of it. I see where your senses are heightened, so thats why training is such an important part of both. In the sheriffs office we get so much training, from customer care to shooting at the range to role playing to become a good deputy. And thats one thing I learned coming from the civilian side is training. Youre going to practice how you play and play how you practice. Training is everything in law enforcement. Training is everything in football, or anything that you do. And the more you do it, the tedious repetitions, you become an expert at it.Ž Judge Judy would be proud.FOOTBALLFROM PAGE 13 PHOTO BY FLORIDA TARPONS/ CHISTOPHER ARNOLD Xavier Melton gets by a lineman from the Tampa Bay Tigers during an arena football game last Saturday at the RP Fudning Center in Lakeland.BARTOW … In November county voters will decide on whether to renew the half cent sales tax that has generated $481M since January 2004.

Palestinian mili tants in the Gaza Strip red at least 50 rockets and mortars into southern Israel on Tuesday, the largest barrage since the 2014 war between Isra el and Hamas.JERUSALEM „ Palestinian militants bombarded southern Israel with dozens of rockets and mortar shells Tuesday, while Israeli warplanes struck targets throughout the Gaza Strip in the largest ”are-up of violence between the sides since a 2014 war. The Israeli military said most of the projectiles were intercepted, but three soldiers were wounded, raising the chances of further Israeli retaliation. One mortar shell landed near a kindergarten shortly before it opened. The sudden burst of violence, which stretched past midnight with no signs of slowing, follows weeks of mass Palestinian protests along the Gaza border with Israel. Over 110 Palestinians, many of them unarmed protesters, have been killed by Israeli “re in that time. Israel says it holds Gazas Hamas rulers responsible for the bloodshed. Israel will exact a heavy price from those who seek to harm it, and we see Hamas as responsible for preventing such attacks,Ž Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies and have fought three wars since the Islamic group seized control of Gaza in 2007. The last war in 2014 was especially devastating, with over 2,000 Palestinians killed, including hundreds of civilians, and widespread damage in”icted on Gazas infrastructure in 50 days of “ghting. Seventy-two people were killed on the Israeli side. Tuesdays violence bore a striking resemblance to the run-up to past wars. In the early morning, Palestinian militants “red over two dozen mortar rounds into southern Israel, including the shell that landed near the kindergarten. The Israeli military con“rmed over 60 airstrikes throughout Gaza, including an un“nished tunnel near the southern city of Rafah that crossed under the border into Egypt and from there into Israeli territory. It said other targets included sheds of drones,Ž a rocket manufacturing workshop, naval weaponry, military and training facilities and a munitions manufacturing site. No Palestinian casualties were reported.Gaza militants strike Israel, drawing Israeli retaliationBy JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump and Democratic critics traded outraged, sometimes plainly false accusations about immigration Tuesday as the debate over lostŽ children and the practice of separating families caught crossing the border illegally reached a new boiling point. False charges ”ew on both sides. The White House wrongly blamed Democrats for forcing his administration to separate children from parents. Liberal activists tried to highlight the issue by tweeting photos of young people in steel cages that actually were taken during the Obama administration. Others seized on reports the government had lostŽ more than 1,000 children, though that wasnt quite the case. It all comes just in time for the midterm elections as Republicans and Democrats try to rally core voters by pointing “ngers at one another. Trump won the presidency promising to build a wall along the southern border and end illegal immigration, and the White House believes stressing the same issues will drive voters to the polls and help the GOP hang on to their majorities in the Senate and House. The White House is really beating the immigration drum in the lead-up to the midterm elections as a rallying cry and as a way of mobilizing voter support for Trump and the candidates that he chooses,Ž said Doris Meissner, a senior fellow at the non-partisan Migration Policy Institute and former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clinton administration. It does seem to provoke a ratcheting up across the board.Ž Indeed, the situation grew so hostile Trump, critics trade angry immigration chargesBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSSEOUL, South Korea „ U.S. President Donald Trump con“rmed Tuesday that a top North Korean of“cial is headed to New York for talks on an upcoming summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as diplomatic efforts also accelerated in Asia. Trump said in a tweet that Kim Yong Chol was traveling to New York as part of ongoing meetings between the two countries to arrange the summit on the future of North Koreas nuclear weapons. South Korean media earlier reported that Kim Yong Chols name was on the passenger list for a “ght Wednesday from Beijing to New York. Kim was seen in the Beijing airport on Tuesday by Associated Press Television. Trump tweeted: We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!Ž Kim Yong Chol is a former military intelligence chief and now a vice chairman of the North Korean ruling partys central committee. WASHINGTON „ In language that echoed that of his accusers and critics, President Donald Trump alleged on Twitter that special counsel Robert Muellers investigative team was MEDDLINGŽ in the upcoming midterm elections and blamed Democrats for Collusion.Ž The tweet Tuesday was the latest example of the president co-opting the terminology of his accusers in an effort to tarnish political enemies. It came as Mueller investigates allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether any Trump campaign aides colluded with the Kremlin to tip the outcome in the Republican candidates favor. So far, four Trump associates have been charged in Muellers investigation, and three „ including former White BALTIMORE „ The body of the Maryland National Guardsman who was swept away in Ellicott Citys ”oods Sunday was found in the Patapsco River on Tuesday, according to Howard County Police. The body of Sgt. Eddison A. Hermond, 39, was found by searchers in the Patapsco River just across the Baltimore County line, Howard County Police posted on Twitter. Hermond was washed away in ”oodwaters after trying to rescue Kate Bowman, a local shop owner, Bowman told The Baltimore Sun. Before his body was found Tuesday, the Severn man, a member of the Maryland National Guard, was last seen Sunday at 5:20 p.m. near La Palapa restaurant on Main Street, Howard County police said. Maryland National Guard Col. Charles Kohler said Hermond joined the Maryland Army National Guard in 2009 and was assigned to Camp Fretterd in Reisterstown. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1996 and served more than a decade on active duty. Randy Marriner, who owns the Victoria Restaurant Group, said Hermond was one of the original employees of Victoria Gastro Pub when the Columbia restaurant opened 11 years ago. He said Hermond worked in his restaurants when he wasnt on active duty, and worked his way up from server to bartender to manager. Marriners group also includes Manor Hill Tavern in Ellicott City. Hermond was a manager at Manor Hill Tavern until last fall, Marriner said. He said Hermond was family.Ž Its just really, really sad and unnecessary,Ž Marriner said. In the midst of panic and we make split-second decision that sometimes may not „ while well-intended „ may not have been the best decisions.ŽSenior NKorean official heads to NY to plan for Trump summitTrump borrows language of accusers, critics in Mueller tweetSearchers find body of National Guardsman who went missing in Md. floodBy KIM TONG-HYUNGASSOCIATED PRESS By ERIC TUCKERASSOCIATED PRESSBy SARAH MEEHANTHE BALTIMORE SUN TRUMP | 8 SUMMIT | 8 CHARGES | 8 AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump applauds during a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, Monday.

Researchers surveyed a small sample of neighborhoods and from that estimated that up to 4,600 more deaths than usual occurred, far more than earlier studies have suggested. At least one independent expert questioned the methods and the number in the new study. This estimate could be off by thousands. Easily,Ž Donald Berry, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, told The Associated Press in an email. The research was published online in the New England Journal of Medicine. Its the latest study to analyze how many people died during or after the Category 4 storm that hit the U.S. territory in September 2017, causing more than an estimated $100 billion in damage. Researchers led by Harvard University called the of“cial toll of 64 deaths a substantial underestimate.Ž Maria caused the longest blackout in U.S. history, leaving the entire island of 3.3 million people without power, including those in hospitals and nursing homes who relied on respirators. Researchers surveyed 3,299 households earlier this year and used the “ndings to extrapolate to the whole island. They found that 31 percent reported disruptions in medical services, and more than 14 percent said they were unable to access medications. They calculated 4,645 more people died in the three months after Maria compared with the same period in 2016. One of the researchers, Rafael Irizarry of Harvard University, told the AP that the estimate is uncertain because of its limited size, but that the study still provides valuable information, including how some people died.Study estimates higher death toll in Puerto Rico post-MariaBy DANICA COTOASSOCIATED PRESS MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDCanada to buy major pipeline to ensure it gets builtTORONTO (AP) „ Canadas federal government said Tuesday it is buying a controversial pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to the Paci“c Coast to ensure it gets built. Prime Minister Justin Trudeaus government plans to spend $4.5 billion Canadian (US$3.4 billion) to purchase Kinder Morgans Trans Mountain pipeline. The pipeline expansion would triple the capacity of an existing line to ship oil extracted from the oil sands in Alberta across the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. It would end at a terminal outside Vancouver, resulting in a seven-fold increase in the number of tankers in the shared waters between Canada and Washington state. It must be built and it will be built,Ž Finance Minister Bill Morneau said.Health officials cautiously optimistic on Ebola responseGENEVA (AP) „ The World Health Organization said Tuesday it is cautiously optimisticŽ about efforts to curb the spread of Ebola in an urban area in Congo, although the lethal virus is still reported in at least two remote areas.

The Sun /Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps hard-line views on trade, a staple of his message long before he entered politics, are beginning to collide with the cold realities of global geopolitics. Trade talks on China and the North American Free Trade Agreement have hit stumbling blocks, posing a challenge for a president who vowed to make trade deals more equitable for the United States during his 2016 campaign and who famously tweeted that trade wars are easy to win.Ž Trumps trade agenda „ at least lately „ has not been so easy. Trumps administration announced plans Tuesday to slap $50 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese technology while taking steps to impose new investment restrictions and export controls, aimed at pushing China to remove trade barriers that make it dif“cult for U.S. companies to do business in China. The new action came after the administration said earlier this month that it had suspended plans to impose $150 billion in tariffs for now and the president tweeted last week that a different structureŽ would be needed in the trade talks involving the worlds two largest economies. The president has bemoaned the massive U.S. trade de“cit with China „ $337 billion last year „ as evidence that Beijing has been complicit in abusive trading practices and outsmarted his predecessors. Pointing to a pause in the trade dispute, the administration had pointed to Chinas plans to signi“cantly increaseŽ its purchases of U.S. goods and services and make meaningful increasesŽ in U.S. exports of agriculture and energy products. Financial markets, wary of a calamitous trade war, were relieved. But Beijing did not agree to any speci“c dollar amounts, despite the Trump administrations push to lower the U.S. trade de“cit by at least $200 billion. And doubts remain about whether China will address allegations the Chinese engage in cybertheft of trade secrets, force U.S. companies to transfer some of their technology in exchange for market access or back away from its China 2025 plan to dominate emerging technologies. Trumps team, meanwhile, has hit an impasse with Canada and Mexico on negotiations over NAFTA. The president has sought to overhaul NAFTA as a way of returning automobile production to the U.S. and reduce Americas trade de“cit with Mexico. But the talks are running into the complications of Mexican elections in July and the U.S. midterm elections in November along with a dispute over rules for car production. Seeking leverage, Trumps administration launched an investigation into whether tariffs might be necessary on car imports, based on national security concerns. The potential penalties could affect Mexico, Canada, Japan and the European Union. The administration used a similar Commerce Department probe to impose tariffs in March on imported steel and aluminum. But auto manufacturers said they didnt push for the auto investigation, and members of Congress questioned the validity of the probe. The Honda Accord is not a threat to our national security,Ž said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, hours after joining Trump for a bill signing at the White House. But he added that taxing it with trade tariffs is a threat to the economic security of millions of hard-working American families.Not so easy: Trumps trade agenda hits stumbling blocksBy KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this May 16 photo, President Donald Trump listens to a question in the Oval Oce of the White House in Washington. BIRMINGHAM, Ala. „ The remnants of Alberto doused the Deep South with waves of rain Tuesday as the vast, soggy system pushed northward toward the Tennessee Valley. Forecasters said the subtropical depression swirling near Birmingham could dump as much as 6 inches of rain on central Alabama. Heavy downpours reduced visibility for commuters, while toppled trees blocked roads south of the city. The U.S. Golf Association canceled a practice round of the U.S. Womens Open Championship, being played at Shoal Creek, because of the weather. Alabama Power Co. said about 20,000 homes and businesses were without electricity Tuesday, most in the Birmingham area. In south Alabama near the Florida line, the city of Andalusia reopened its roads after ordering residents to stay off streets overnight because of ”ash ”ooding and downed trees and power lines. In Cuba, ”ooding damaged an oil re“nery in central Cuba and caused crude oil to spill into Cienfuegos Bay as the remnants of Alberto continued to drench the island in heavy rain. State-owned TV showed authorities using barriers Tuesday to try to contain the spill from the Cienfuegos re“nery about 150 miles southeast of Havana. As the “rst named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, Subtropical Storm Alberto lumbered ashore Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle and then weakened overnight to a depression. Forecasters said rain could still kill people caught in ”ash ”oods in the coming hours or days in Alabama and large areas of Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. In North Carolina, a television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday while covering the weather, when a tree became uprooted from rain-soaked ground and toppled onto their SUV, authorities said. Two journalists working to keep the public informed about this storm have tragically lost their lives, and we mourn with their families, friends and colleagues,Ž North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a statement. North Carolina needs to take Alberto seriously. I urge everyone to keep a close eye on forecasts, warnings and road conditions, especially in western North Carolina where even heavier rain is predicted.Ž The National Weather Service said a weak tornado brie”y touched down Monday in central South Carolina as an outer band from Alberto moved through. A ”ood watch is in effect through Wednesday morning for the northwestern part of the state because of the storm. Between 2 and 6 inches of rain could soak Alabama and western Georgia on Tuesday, and isolated deluges of 12 inches also are possible as the system heads into the Tennessee Valley on its way to the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. Alberto dumped between 2 and 5 inches of rain over parts of the Florida Panhandle, according to the National Weather Service. Doublered ”ags along the white sandy beaches kept most people out of the rough waters, and some low-lying areas experienced minor ”ooding, of“cials said. Most of the issues were having right now are downed trees and downed limbs,Ž Walton County spokesman Louis Svehla told the Northwest Florida Daily News. Our beaches did good. There was not a lot of erosion. The surge was not that large.ŽSouth doused with heavy rains from remnants of AlbertoBy JAY REEVESASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK „ Stocks in the U.S. and Europe sank Tuesday following political turmoil in Italy, which stoked fears of instability in the euro bloc. Investors sold stocks and prices for U.S. government bonds surged as investors shifted money into lower-risk investments. Bond yields dropped, and with them, interest rates on mortgages and other kinds of loans. Banks plunged as Wall Street expected they would earn thinner pro“ts. Major exporters like technology and industrial companies and big drug and medical device makers also skidded. Those companies depend on strong sales outside the U.S. Investors dumped Italian government bonds, driving borrowing costs sharply higher for that country and rekindling fears of more “nancial strain for Europes third-largest economy. They bought German and British government bonds instead, which are seen as more stable. The political upheaval in Italy is likely to lead to new elections in the next few months, and investors are interpreting the new vote as a referendum and that Italy could move closer to abandoning the currency if populist parties win the election. Its not clear if that would happen, but if it did, it would have major implications for the European “nancial system and its economy. Eurozone membership will be at the forefront of the next election,Ž said Alicia Levine, the head of global investment strategy at BNY Mellon Investment Management. Should Italy leave the eurozone, its clearly bad for European assets and its bad for the European banking system.Ž New jitters about the stability of the euro sent the currencys value against the dollar to its lowest level in almost a year. The dollar rose to 108.24 yen from 109.37 yen. The euro sank to $1.1531, its lowest since July, from $1.1669. The S&P 500 index sank 31.47 points, or 1.2 percent, to 2,689.86. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 391.64 points, or 1.6 percent, to 24,361.45. It was down as much as 505 earlier. The Russell 2000 index fell far less than the Dow average, giving up 3.28 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,623.65. The Nasdaq composite fell 37.26 points, or 0.5 percent, to 7,396.59.Italian turmoil hits global markets, sending stocks plungingBy MARLEY JAYAP MARKETS WRITERNEW YORK „ ABC canceled its hit reboot of RoseanneŽ on Tuesday following star Roseanne Barrs racist tweet that referred to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes.Ž ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said the comment is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.Ž Barr had apologized and deleted her Monday-night tweet, calling it a bad joke,Ž but the damage had already been done. Barr was also dumped by her talent agency, ICM Partners. The revival of the comedy was a surprise smash for ABC, owned by the Walt Disney Co., and was counted on to lead the networks fortunes next season. Its “rst new episode in March was seen by more than 25 million people, with delayed viewing counted in, numbers that are increasingly rare in network television. ABC expected advertisers to pay millions of dollars for the chance to be seen during commercial breaks on televisions most popular comedy after The Big Bang Theory.Ž And it was all killed in a 53-character tweet. One of the few network shows about a working-class family, RoseanneŽ attracted considerable attention upon its return when Barrs character supported President Donald Trump. That made the show popular with conservative viewers, and Trump himself suggested the characters backing had a lot to do with the shows success. Barr herself has a history of diving into political conspiracy theories on her Twitter feed, and she ended her Memorial Day weekend with a series of statements. She criticized Democratic “nancier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was Chelsea Soros Clinton,Ž implying she was married to a nephew of Soros. Clinton herself corrected Barr online. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted two of Barrs statements about Soros, although not the remark about Jarrett. Jarrett, who is black, was brought up in response to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory. Barr tweeted: muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.Ž She later tweeted an apology to Jarrett. Forgive me,Ž she wrote. My joke was in bad taste.ŽABC cancels Roseanne following stars racist tweetBy DAVID BAUDERAP MEDIA WRITER AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 8 photo, Roseanne Barr participates in the RoseanneŽ panel during the Disney/ABC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California. MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRYLawyer: Weinstein had long relationship with rape accuserNEW YORK (AP) „ The woman who has accused Harvey Weinstein of rape in his criminal case was in a decade-long relationship with him that continued after the alleged attack in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013, a lawyer for the “lm producer said Tuesday. Attorney Benjamin Brafman made the remark after meeting behind closed doors with prosecutors and a New York judge Tuesday over defense concerns about whether Weinstein can get a fair trial. The criminal case revolves around two women, only one of whom, the former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her story of being forced to perform oral sex on Weinstein at his of“ce in 2004. Prosecutors havent identi“ed the second accuser, who told investigators Weinstein con“ned her in a hotel room and raped her.

The Sun /Wednesday, May 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Yesterdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a man in my late 50s. I now am told to sleep on my right side and not my left side, because it's better for the heart. However, my sinuses seem to open up and it's easier to breathe lying on my left side. What, if anything, will happen if I sleep on my left side? Can it damage the heart permanently or lead to an early death? „ M.N. ANSWER: Most people can sleep in whatever position they nd comfortable without any problem. However, there are a few instances in which sleeping on the left side may potentially cause problems. One is in people with untreated obstructive sleep apnea, in which several studies have shown that sleeping on the left side leads to slightly more breathing problems than sleeping on the right. However, in people who are treated, that should not be a problem. Pregnant women should sleep on the side. Although women have often been recommended to sleep on their left side, either side is ne for the baby. Left-sided sleeping may reduce swelling in the feet. People with known severe congestive heart failure or coronary artery disease and who habitually sleep on the left side have a small increase in death compared with back sleepers or right-side sleepers. DEAR DR. ROACH: Does sunlight make chickenpox blisters appear more quickly? „ S.V.A. ANSWER: I have heard that, too, but can't nd any evidence that it's true. The rash of chickenpox certainly will come, even in darkness. Sunlight can worsen scarring from chickenpox, and the aected skin is more susceptible to burning, so those with chickenpox rash should be kept out of the sun. Chickenpox is also very contagious; restrict contact with anyone who hasn't had it or the vaccine. DEAR DR. ROACH: A few years ago, Johns Hopkins produced an article stating that possibly being hard of hearing and doing nothing about it could lead to Alzheimer's disease. Is that study still valid? „ S.S. ANSWER: It's been almost 30 years since a link between hearing loss and dementia was rst published, and recent research has conrmed this link. It now seems clear that hearing loss increases the rate of decline in brain function by 30 to 40 percent, independent of other risk factors. Put another way, people with mild hearing loss had double the risk of dementia in 10 years; those with moderate hearing loss, triple the risk; those with severe hearing loss had ve times the risk of dementia compared with people of normal hearing and the same age. The brains of people with hearing loss are more likely to atrophy as well. Of course, not everybody with hearing loss develops dementia, and people with normal hearing can. There is some, but not conclusive, evidence that hearing aids protect the brain from dementia in people with hearing loss. However, it is clear hearing aids can improve social functioning, well-being and some measures of memory. Despite this evidence, many older people with hearing loss do not get it treated.

Please allow four weeks for delivery.DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 13 years and have two beautiful children. I recently found out that for the last two years, he has been having an aair, and his mistress is now three months pregnant. When I confronted him about the situation, he claimed he doesn't know what to do. I have told him I'm willing to work things out and be supportive of the child, but the aair has to stop. The problem is, he's having a hard time letting go. Please give me some advice. „ Lost In Love In Houston DEAR LOST: Insist that you and your husband talk with a licensed marriage and family therapist to see if you can get your marriage back on track. Texas, thank the Lord, is a community property state, so it's important that you understand what that will mean to you and your children nancially should a divorce become necessary. DEAR ABBY: I'm a 53-year-old man, twice divorced, raising a 16-yearold son as a single parent. I have been dating a woman with the same history, but her children are grown. Both of us are alcoholics. Recently, she has experienced the deaths of a sibling and her ex-husband. Now she feels I don't give her enough attention. How can I convince her that I love her more than ever, but my free time needs to go to my son? „ She Wants More In Ohio DEAR SHE WANTS: I understand your drinking buddy wants more, but your rst responsibility must be to your teenaged son. You would be a better father if you were sober. Alcoholics Anonymous can help you achieve sobriety if you reach out to them. You can nd a meeting online at aa.org. Then, be a "best friend" to your lady by telling her she could nd the support and companionship she's desperate to experience by attending meetings at AA herself. Dear Readers: Whenever you frost a twoor three-layer cake, use SKEWERS to hold the layers down so that the stacks stay in place and don't become lopsided. Wait about 30 minutes afterward and remove the skewers, then smooth frosting over the areas where the skewers had been. Your cakes will always look nice this way. FYI: To make a quick and easy frosting, mix together powdered sugar, cherry juice (or your favorite juice) and a drop of vanilla. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: With six children in the house, you can imagine how much cereal we go through. We used to have six or seven open boxes of cereal in the pantry. Now, I allow the children to open only three boxes at a time. The unopened ones are stored upside-down, so the children know they can't open them until they nish the ones that are already open. „ Karen F., Cornelius, Ore.Sleeping on the left side may potentially cause problems Man must choose between wife, pregnant mistress Sticking skewers in a cakeHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

Page 6 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Wednesday, May 30, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Social grace is at least as much about knowing what to say as it is about leaving room for others to be themselves. Youll nail this and enjoy the spontaneous trajectory things take because of it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When it comes to making others happy, no striving or straining will be necessary. Do whats natural, and then rest. Working too hard to please people will only make you a prisoner, trapped in the bars of needing their approval. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Its the same on the Wheel of FortuneŽ board as it is in life. The more turned letters you have, the easier it is to ll in the blanks. Ask for more clues and the next correct action will be obvious. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youll be connecting with those you havent seen in a while. You might feel like you cant get to the hanging out part until you play catch-up, but if you only have limited time, go for the hanging out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its not the big events that determine what a relationship is, not really. Its the forgettable Wednesdays that are made somehow unforgettable by the unique laughter and love you share with each other. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The deep conversation between I and me will not lead anywhere productive, rather its a dialogue that tends to corkscrew down to a basement of moods. For a lift, focus your energy on others instead. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Theres not a rightŽ moment for things to happen, just a moment in which things do happen because 1) they have built up to a place in which they must, or 2) you follow the impulse to make them happen. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you choose something that, it turns out, you dont like so much after all, do not stick with it out of a loyalty, fear or a sense of challenge. It wont serve anyone in the long run, least of all you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Its an excellent habit youve developed „ not oering up information unless youre pretty sure. This works toward building your reputation. People will trust what you say because you say what you know to be true. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Clicking with someones sense of humor is nothing to take for granted. Humor requires a match of so many factors that its quite rare for people to make each other laugh on a regular basis. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Meetings will be far more interesting when you have a stake in what goes down. Denitely prepare yourself with questions and relevant information about your side of things. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you show up, you aim to do so with at least as much enthusiasm as you had back when you accepted the invitation. Youll keep this in mind before accepting new invitations today. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (May 30). You long ago realized that youre the one who gives your life meaning and the lengths youll go to do that will make this a magical year indeed. Youll make a courageous move before June is over that sets the tone for the year. Business favors you in July and August. New friends being joy and fun to 2019. Leo and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 2, 22, 28 and 39.

Archaeologists have not found the victims head. Of“cials said the man suffered an infection of the tibia, which may have caused walking dif“culties, impeding his escape. The archaeological sites general director, Massimo Osanna, called it an exceptional “nd,Ž that contributes to a better picture of the history and civilization of the age.ŽPompeii: New find shows man crushed trying to flee eruption AP PHOTOThe legs of a skeleton emerge from the ground beneath a large rock believed to have crushed the victims bust during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, which destroyed the ancient town of Pompeii, at Pompeiis archeological site, near Naples, on Tuesday. over the holiday weekend that the presidents eldest daughter, White House adviser Ivanka Trump, came under “re for tweeting a photo of herself and her youngest son in their pajamas Sunday morning. Focus on what is before you, on what you can control and ignore the trolls!Ž she later wrote. During a White House conference call on Tuesday, senior adviser Stephen Miller contended the the current immigration and border crisisŽ is the exclusive product of loopholes in federal immigration law that Democrats refuse to close.Ž That was after Trump lit up social media over the weekend by falsely claiming there was a horrible lawŽ that separates children from their parents after they cross the border illegally. He had said previously that we have to break up familiesŽ at the border because the Democrats gave us that law.Ž But theres no law mandating that parents must be separated from their children, and its not a policy Democrats have pushed or can change alone as the minority in Congress. The tactics increased use is being driven by Trumps own administration, which recently announced a new zero-tolerance policyŽ in which it will press criminal charges against all people crossing the border illegally, even if they have few or no previous offenses. More children are expected to be separated from their parents as a result. A Customs and Border Protection of“cial told lawmakers last week that 658 children had been separated from their parents at the border from May 6 to May 19 as the parents face charges. Thats in addition to hundreds more who were estimated to have been removed from their parents since October. The practice has drawn condemnation from Trump critics, who have long accused him of supporting inhumane policies in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. He actually called the practice horrible. If he thinks its so horrible then he ought to just end it and not make the children a negotiating tool,Ž said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Unions Immigrants Rights Project. Michelle Brane, director of the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Womens Refugee Commission, said in a statement: Family separation is NOT required by any law, this is a Trump administration policy clearly designed to punish parents, who are just trying to get their children to safety.Ž But Trump foes made their own missteps. Over the weekend, some critics of the policy tweeted photos of young-looking immigrants at the U.S.Mexico border in steel cages and blamed the Trump administration for separating immigrant children from their parents. The problem: The photos were taken by The Associated Press in 2014, when Barack Obama was in of“ce, and the photo captions reference children who crossed the border as unaccompanied minors. How or why the story resurfaced on social media four years after it was published was unclear. But Trump seized on the error. Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obamas term showing children from the Border in steel cages. They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but back“res,Ž Trump tweeted Tuesday. Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country ... Bipartisan Bill!Ž Its unclear what Bipartisan Bill!Ž Trump was referring to. Congress is heading toward an immigration showdown in the House, as Republican moderates force a June vote on legislation to protect young DreamerŽ immigrants and beef up border security. GOP leaders are trying to stop the bill, which has robust support from Democrats and some Republicans. Theyre worried any legislation that smacks of amnestyŽ for immigrants in the U.S. illegally would dampen conservative enthusiasm ahead of the midterms. Instead, House Speaker Paul Ryan and his leadership team are trying to put together an alternative approach that most Republicans would support. But “nding common ground remains dif“cult. Trump so far has not engaged in the Capitol Hill debate, even as he repeatedly insists Congress must act. Also making the rounds on social media over the holiday weekend: Allegations that children placed in custody have been lostŽ by federal authorities, which of“cials say isnt the case. The allegation, which sparked the hashtag WhereAreOurChildren,Ž grew out of testimony in April by a federal of“cial that the government had lost track of nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minor children it placed with adult sponsors in the U.S. An of“cial from the Health and Human Services Department told a congressional hearing last month that his department placed follow-up phone calls from October to December to U.S. households that were sponsoring minors who crossed the border without their parents. They reached 86 percent of the children or sponsors, but the department could not verify the whereabouts of 1,475. In some cases, sponsors simply didnt respond to the follow-up phone call, not surprising because many are themselves in the U.S. illegally and reluctant to speak to authorities. If you call a friend and they dont answer the phone, you dont assume that theyve been kidnapped,Ž Health and Human Services Steven Wagner said. Of“cials also Tuesday they are planning more thorough screening of both minor children and their sponsors, including a “ngerprint background check of every sponsor.CHARGESFROM PAGE 1 He would be the highestlevel North Korean of“cial to travel to the United States since 2000, when late National Defense Commission First Vice Chairman Jo Myong Rok visited Washington, South Koreas Uni“cation Ministry said. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has traveled to Pyongyang, North Koreas capital, twice in recent weeks for meetings with Kim Jong Un, after which he said there was a shared understandingŽ between the two sides about what they hope to achieve in the summit. It remained unclear whom Kim Yong Chol will meet in the United States. Meanwhile, a team of American diplomats involved in preparatory discussions was seen leaving a Seoul hotel on Tuesday, but it was unclear whether they went to Panmunjom, a village that straddles the border inside the Demilitarized Zone, to continue talks with their North Korean counterparts following their “rst meeting on Sunday. The U.S. of“cials are led by Sung Kim, the U.S. ambassador to Manila, who formerly was the U.S. ambassador to Seoul and a top negotiator with North Ko rea in past nuclear talks. The U.S.-led United Nations Command canceled a press tour of Panmunjom scheduled for Wednesday, saying the decision was related to security preparations to accommodate the U.S.-North Korea talks there. There will be no similar media events at the village until after June 12, the possible date of the summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un, according to the command. South Korean media also reported that a North Korean delegation arrived in Singapore on Monday night for likely summit preparations with U.S. of“cials. Seoul did not con“rm reports that the North Korean of“cials were headed by Kim Chang Son, Kim Jong Uns close associate, and that his American counterpart would likely be White House deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin. South Koreas Foreign Ministry said Washington and Pyongyang were engaging in workinglevelŽ talks to arrange the possible summit, but said it couldnt con“rm speci“cs. Ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-duk also did not say whether Seoul knew of any U.S. plans regarding Kim Yong Chols visit, such as whether he and Pompeo will meet.SUMMITFROM PAGE 1House national security adviser Michael Flynn „ have pleaded guilty. Trump has repeatedly referred to Muellers team as 13 angry Democrats,Ž although Mueller is a Republican. Mueller was appointed by Trumps deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, and before that was named FBI director in 2001 by Republican President George W. Bush. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the mid-term elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls. There was no Collusion, except by the Democrats.Ž The tweet appeared to be a reference to the fact that multiple lawyers on Muellers team, before signing on for the assignment, contributed money to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton, Trumps Democratic opponent in the presidential election. The Justice Department is barred from discriminating against employees or applicants on the basis of political af“liation. Later Tuesday morning, Trump appeared to be taking guidance from some of his advisers and supporters to heart, saying he needed to focus more of his attention on issues important to Americans and less on the Russia investigation. Sorry, Ive got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/ Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.,Ž he tweeted.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1LAGUNA BEACH, Calif.

Page 8 MAY 30, 2018Sun Central Media GroupFeeling Fit Earlier this year, I brought home something both completely life-changing and terrifying. Sure, I could be talking about Makena, my now 3-month old baby girl. But really Im referring to Snoo, the smart bassinet that my husband and I purchased after a month or so of sleep deprivation. The invention of Dr. Harvey Karp, the pediatrician and author behind the Happiest Baby enterprise, Snoo promises better sleep for baby „ and parents by association „ by using a combination of white noise and movement to lull your wee one, encased in the accompanying swaddle sack, to sleep. The bassinet doubles as an alwayson soothing device, equipped with tiny microphones to cycle through ve levels of louder sound and faster jiggling that correspond with the intensity of babys cries. It turns o, and noties parents via push notication, only when the baby cant be calmed. In some ways, Snoo is like a more hands-on Amazon Echo for a newborn, meaning its a digital assistant always listening for its wake word „ or cry, in this case „ and equipped to respond with an answer thats more often right than wrong. Confession time. I didnt have the mental capacity to ponder the potential pitfalls of this too-good-to-be-true sounding gadget before buying one. Nope. I just needed help „ and fast. Later, I would read about other moms concerns, which range from fear about the Snoo interfering with parents ability to bond with their babies to outright disdain for parents who are seemingly lazy and unwilling to rock their babies to sleep. One might also worry about what Happiest Baby will do with babies sleep data, which the company does collect, or be uneasy about introducing infants to a device at birth. But our introduction to the Snoo went something like this: A close friend who came to stay with us for the second week of our little girls life recounted how one of her friends bought this really expensive and fancyŽ bassinet when her newborn proved to be a very bad sleeper. My husband and I Googled said sleeper and chuckled to ourselves in disbelief that anyone would spend $1,200 on a bassinet. Fast-forward a week or two and, after a particularly cacophonous day, I happened upon, The Happiest Baby on the Block,Ž a 16-year-old book authored by Karp that teaches a method he calls the 5 SsŽ „ standing for swaddle, side-stomach position, shush, swing and suck „ for calming a crying baby. The book also reasons that all babies are born three or four months before theyre ready for the world. This fourth-trimester message and the calming techniques really resonated me, so much so that I couldnt stop myself from daydreaming about Karps magic-sounding bassinet based around the same thinking. Its funny (but not) how minimal sleep and lengthy stretches of trying to comfort an inconsolable baby will eventually make $1,200 sound like a totally fair price to pay for a baby bed. We ended up buying our Snoo second hand for $580, making the cost even easier to stomach. Thank you, Facebook Marketplace. Truthfully, we have no regrets, even after having ample time to contemplate the ramications of a machine coddling our baby night after night. Our baby loves her Snoo, so much so that I can now set her down in it and watch as she transitions from a state of fussiness to utter zen in a matter of seconds. Its not atypical for her go down at 8:30 p.m. partially awake and stay in the Snoo until 5 a.m. before we need to intervene. Granted if shes hungry, has a dirty diaper or just isnt in the mood to chill, the Snoo wont be able to work its magic and we happily resume our regular parenting duties. We are, after all, now rested enough to function at our best. But I get why you might judge us. It does, on occasion, feel like were cheating our way through the infant stage. Karp, who I recently interviewed for a forthcoming U-T podcast series, reasons that the Snoo merely uses technology to do the most ancient thing of all: rock and soothe babies. Today, if you have a nanny or night nurse, youre pretty well o. If you have two or three of them, youre positively wealthy,Ž he told me. But up until 100 years ago, and throughout the entire history of humanity, parents had ve or six nannies. They had the grandmother, the aunt, the older sister, your next door neighbor, the next door neighbors older daughter. You had a whole cadre of helpers. What parents are doing today, by raising a baby on their own, which they think is normal, couldnt be more abnormal. Really, what Snoo is ƒ its your older sister. Its the person who came to your house and said, you know what, Jenn, you sleep. Im going to rock, shush and hold the baby all night long and Ill get you if Makenas hungry.Ž Karp, of course, is used to being pressed on the foreignness of Snoo. For instance, when peppered about whether this is introducing too much tech too soon, he retorted that its no dierent than putting the baby in a swing or a car. If you imitate, give (infants) the sensations that theyre used to for nine months in the womb, why wouldnt we do that? Then theyre going to sleep better and calm faster,Ž he said. Just like you. You could sleep on the oor, but youre used to sleeping on a bed with certain sheets, or a pillow or a blanket. Why should I take that away from you if thats how you sleep better?Ž I suppose whether you accept Karps rationale or not is a choice based on your own baby belief system. The only reassurance I need is this: I can sleep at night.JENNIFER VAN GROVE: SNOOZING ON THE MOMMY JOBBy Jennifer Van Grove San Diego Union-Tribune (TNS)

He attended the University of Central Florida in 2012 where he was an active member of the Pre-Dental Student Association and graduated with his Bachelors in Business Management. He was then accepted into the University of Florida College of Dentistry where he graduated in 2016. Dr. Pero has been on numerous dental mission trips, including once to Jamaica and twice to the Dominican Republic, where he placed implants, extracted wisdom teeth, and taught the importance of oral care. His passion for dentistry stems from his close attention to detail, his patience with children and adults alike, and his goal of helping people become the healthiest, most condent versions of themselves! Dr. Pero began working at Forni Dental in June of 2016. He was kind enough to answer a few questions for us about childrens oral care! 1. When does a child need to have their rst dentist visit? I recommend children come into the oce for their rst visit before turning one year old. At that visit we are able to do a simple cleaning, familiarize them with the dental oce, and established their dental home. This helps them get used to seeing the dentist. 2. How can you prevent bottle rot? Bottle rot is tooth decay in baby teeth when sugars latch onto the teeth as they sleep. Avoid giving kids bottles with juice and milk at nap and night time. With every sip they coat their teeth in sugar. Babies should only have water in a bottle when they sleep. 3. When should babies have all of their teeth? Baby teeth begin coming in at around 6-10 months old. As the teeth come in, you can use a clean, damp rag to wipe the teeth and gums using your nger. This allows the child to get familiar with brushing. By 33 months, the baby should have all of their teeth in. 4. How can I keep my child from being afraid of the dentist? Im a rm believer in the Tell-Show-Do Method. Have your child come with you to the dentist. Here we will explain what we are doing and show them while we clean your teeth. When the parent is nished, the child has their own cleaning. Also, be very careful with word choice. We prefer parents refrain from using the words painŽ, shotŽ, needleŽ or hurtŽ in association with the dentist. 5. When should children lose their teeth? Most children begin losing their teeth at around 6 or 7 years old and many lose their last baby tooth at 12 years old. 6. How often should children see the dentist? Children need to see a dentist every 6 months. At these visits they should have their biannual cleaning as well as an exam to check for cavities and their oral health. X-rays are usually taken yearly; when they are necessary to evaluate childrens oral health 7. Can certain foods aect my childs teeth? One way to prevent cavities is by choosing healthy snacks. I never tell my patients that certain foods or beverages are completely olimits, but if they choose sugary foods or drinks they should have them during mealtime. If eaten as snacks more damage is done to teeth since the sugar can fuel bacteria in the mouth to start the decay process. Some snack options that are good for the teeth are greek yogurt, cheese, vegetables, and nuts. 8. What are sealants? Another way to prevent cavities is by getting sealants. Some natural grooves in teeth can be hard to clean and easily collect food particles. Sealants cover these grooves and protect the teeth from cavities. 9. How can I establish brushing teeth as a routine for my child? Make it fun! Brushing teeth can be bonding time that children grow to look forward to everyday. I recommend that children brush their teeth with their parents that way they are appropriately supervised. Do not use uoridated toothpaste until the child is three years old. Additionally, only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste should be used and excess toothpaste should not be swallowed. Teeth should be brushed in the morning and before bedtime. 10. Are you accepting new patients? We are! Forni Dental and I are currently accepting new patients of all ages. 2 0 1 8 0 5 3 0 p k h m b 1 2 p d f 1 2 4 M a y 1 8 1 7 : 4 9 : 2 6
