Florida legislators passed legislation last week Â„ which awaits Gov. Ron DeSantisÂ signature Â„ enabling law enforcement to stop a vehicle if the driver is texting while driving. Texting while driving was already illegal, but police could not pull over drivers unless they committed another violation. Now, typing on a phone while behind the wheel of a moving car would become a primary offense. Drivers will also be prohibited from using their cell phones while driving in active construction and school zones. If the vehicle is stopped, or the driver isnÂt using their cellphone in a Âhandheld manner,ÂŽ the driver cannot be issued the citation. ÂBy strengthening the ban on texting while driving, Florida legislators are sending a strong message about this dangerous form of driver distraction,ÂŽ said Mark Jenkins, a spokesperson for the American Automobile Association. ÂThis is a major step forward in improving the safety on Florida roads.ÂŽ Between 2017 and 2018, the Charlotte County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce issued six citations for texting and driving. Sarasota County has had 11 citations in this same time period, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Before this, texting while driving was a secondary offense, meaning deputies had to stop the vehicle for another trafÂ“c violation, and issue this citation as a secondary one. If signed into law by DeSantis, starting Oct. 1, law enforcement can only issue written or verbal warnings regarding the offense. By Jan. 1, 2020, law enforcement can start issuing citations solely for texting and driving. ÂDistracted driving continues to affect our community by people selÂ“shly endangering the lives of other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians,ÂŽ said Lt. Christopher Williams, who is a supervisor for CCSOÂs trafÂ“c unit. ÂIt is imperative that drivers wait for a safe opportunity to handle cell phones, navigational systems, or anything else that may distract them from the responsibility of operating their vehicle.ÂŽ DeSantis has voiced his support for this type of bill in the past, saying Âthis stuff has got to be enforceable,ÂŽ according to WINK News. ÂIf itÂs a primary offense, then people are going to get pulled over,ÂŽ DeSantis continued. ÂSo, youÂve got to make sure that is going to happen.ÂŽ After the Legislature passed a bill allowing police to stop motorists for driving without a seat belt, studies showed that black drivers were targeted more than white drivers, the Tampa Bay Times reported. To alleviate those concerns, the bill requires law enforcement to record the race and ethnicity of each ticketed driver. Beginning By ANDREA PRAEGITZERASSISTANT EDITORPUNTA GORDA Â„ Walking through it now, you probably wouldnÂt know it was bombed and shot in the 1940s. Visitors, who may or may not know of it, donÂt really talk about it. ThereÂs no signs of it. No waiver is required to enter. But just 16 miles southeast of the city of Punta Gorda in Babcock-Webb Wildlife Management Area, the military leased 13,720 acres between 1944 and 1945 during World War II. It was the Fort Myers Bombing and Gunnery Range. Personnel stationed at nearby Fort Myers Army AirÂ“eld used it for practice. They Â“red 50-caliber machine guns and dropped practice bombs with spotting charges and high-explosive bombs in Charlotte County. Nowadays, cattle graze in a fenced area surrounding the old ranges. But the area formerly leased by the military Â„ which was Â“ve ranges for skip bombing, dive-bombing, demolition bombing, straÂ“ng, and air-to-ground gunnery Â„ is not fenced, and wildlife can move freely through it. ItÂs a great place to hunt, and November tends to be the busiest time, according to outdoor enthusiasts who frequent the area. Off-road access is open during the hunting season as it has been since the 1950s. People come from all over the world just to catch a glimpse of the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker Â„ or see wildlife like deer, hogs and less frequently, turkey.Did bombing contaminate Babcock-Webb?WWII practice range will be studied for potential environmental risksPHOTO PROVIDEDAcross the country, the Department of Defense acquired properties often during times of war to use for military training. Babco ck-Webb Wildlife Management Area is one of the sites used in the 1940s before the end of WWII when it was Fort Myers Bombing and Gunnery Range. The formerly used defense site is being evaluated to determine what if any environmental remediation is needed there. MILITARY CLEANUPThis isnÂt just an issue at Babcock-Webb in Charlotte County. The countryÂs Formerly Used Defense Site program, known as FUDS, had 5,000 sites in 2015 on its radar. The program is overseen by the Army and the Army Corps of Engineers manages the cleanups, under the umbrella of the the Department of Defense. A ProPublica investigation called Bombs in Your Backyard from 2017 found the military spends Âmore than a billion dollars a year to clean up sites its operations have contaminated with toxic waste and explosives.ÂŽ And the programÂs budget has apparently expanded over the years as well. A study from almost two decades ago in Federal Facilities Environmental Journal pinned the cost at $238 million in 2000. Sites for cleanup are prioritized based on their level of risk, ranked from high to low. According to the ProPublica investigation, there are 66 high and medium risk installations in Florida. There are no high or medium risk sites left in Lee County, and just the Babcock-Webb site in Charlotte County that is considered medium. In southern Sarasota County, thereÂs the former Venice Bombing Range, which is ranked as medium risk. For that location, Âthere has been no Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) produced to date,ÂŽ according to Florida Department of Environmental Protection spokesperson Dee Ann Miller. At the Venice Bombing Range, the military leased 2,560 acres for flight crews from Sarasota Army Airfield to use for aerial bombing practice during WWII, according to the Corps. The site is south of US-41 about four miles east of South Venice, near West Villages area. According to the corps, the land has been privately owned and is used primarily for cattle grazing and sod farming. A portion of it has been developed into a residential community. Why does it take so long? According to the Corps, the cleanup process is a multistep process with many agencies. ÂExtracting contaminants from the environment, soil or groundwater, can be very complicated,ÂŽ information from the Corps states. ÂDepending on the type of site, population, topography, community interests, etc., there can be many factors to consider and integrate into a final agreed upon solution.ÂŽ Also, there are many properties within the FUDS program Âand a limited budget, so our work must be prioritized and budgeted for over time,ÂŽ according to the Corps.

On Saturday, in a half day of overtime, lawmakers quickly approved a $91.1 billion budget with record spending on the environment and more spending on public schools. But this session, it wasnÂt about the budget. It was about conservative priorities. Private school vouchers. A ban on Âsanctuary cities.ÂŽ Allowing teachers to carry guns. Free market health care reforms. All were done in the last 60 days after years of failures. Republicans also managed to curtail two future threats to their power Â„ and to their donor base.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT EDITORNORTH PORT Â„ A building that has existed in North Port for decades will receive new life through The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army purchased, through donors, about 12 acres of land and the former Coastal Community Church in the 14600 block of Tamiami Trail. Prior to being a church, it housed a museum and hall of fame for law enforcement. Eventually, that museum moved to Miami. The Salvation Army made the announcement Wednesday afternoon of the purchase that cost about $3 million. They see it as crucial to helping because of the Âunprecedented growthÂŽ of North Port that has brought Âa sharp increase in the need for social services,ÂŽ according to a news release. On Friday, Salvation Army Major Chuck Whiten spoke about the short term and longer term plans for the site, noting they hope to reopen the building by early 2020. ÂWeÂre thrilled to have come to this point,ÂŽ he said. ÂOver the last year, weÂve tried to be very focused on getting this done.ÂŽ Whiten is the area commander for The S alvation Army. ÂThe Florida Division is pleased to embark on this important next step and to prepare The Salvation Army to be able to best serve the growing community of North Port,ÂŽ Salvation Army Florida Divisional Commander Lt. Col. Kenneth Luyk said in a news release. Currently, The Salvation Army works out of a city facility along Pan American Boulevard, but it is lacking room for what ofÂ“cials believe is necessary. ÂItÂs a very small space,ÂŽ Whiten said in North Port on Friday. ÂIt does not allow us to have the full expression of services and doesnÂt really give us the ability to have meaningful interaction with clients and to value those who are already in crisis. We saw that as an immediate need.ÂŽ Because of that, there are no thoughts on immediately leveling the current building; it Âplays a very crucial role for us,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs a quick opportunity to enlarge our capacity to serve the community. ...it has served our community already and itÂs sort of neat to repurpose it,ÂŽ Whiten said. Along with becoming an enlarged food pantry, it will give more space to more of the basic services the Christian organization works to perform. Among those services is a new concept Â„ Pathway of Hope Â„ which has been done for about two years. ÂIt is a very holistic approach for families that itÂs a good Â“t for Â„ not everybody would be a good candidate for Pathway for Hope Â„ but those who are ready to move from crisis to stability Â„ and from stability to self-sufÂ“ciency,ÂŽ he said. It works to address livable wage, budgeting, parenting, stress, mental health and other issues many people can face. ÂWeÂve had two years of experience and we have been identiÂ“ed as the best practice site in the Southeast portion of the country,ÂŽ Whiten said. It looks to help people with services to help them earn certiÂ“cates or degrees that can lead to jobs as licensed practical nursing or commercial drivers licenses. ÂIt is connecting and the interaction with support people, case workers, who are hearing what are their goals. We do have a good community that wants to see people thrive,ÂŽ he said. Whiten has worked in several parts of the nation during his time in The Salvation Army and called Sarasota County a Âvery generousÂŽ community. The short-term goal is to open the existing building; after that: The plan is being conceptualized for the 12 acres. There are no plans for a homeless shelter in North Port, he said. The two-to-Â“ve year plan is for the repurposing of the existing building; as thatÂs happening, two or three conceptual models for what it or the rest of the property can become will be put forth. And that will look into the next decade or two, he said. ÂThe Â“rst thing weÂd probably consider would be a thrift store; then beyond that, maybe what we could consider is the full expression of a worship community service center,ÂŽ he said.Email: Scott.Lawson@yoursun.comSalvation Army buys 12 acres in North PortFormer church, police museum to be resource center for North Port, South Sarasota County SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LAWSONSalvation Army Major Chuck Whiten stands in front of a former church Â„ which previously was a police museum in North Port Â„ that The Salvation Army has purchased, along with 12 acres of land around it. By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERCharlotte County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce arrested a Port Charlotte man Friday, who they say is responsible for three recent armed robberies, including two at gas stations last week. After getting a tip to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, CCSO announced deputies arrested Shamar Dameon Blair, 22, Friday after locating evidence linking him to the the recent robberies at the Marathon and Circle K gas stations on May 1, as well as a robbery that occurred at the Publix on Peachland Boulevard April 9. Blair was charged with false identiÂ“cation given to a law enforcement ofÂ“cer, possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession or use of drug paraphernalia, three counts of robbery with a Â“rearm, two counts of grand theft property of more than $300 but less than $5,000, two counts of possession of Â“rearm ammunition or weapon by Florida convicted felon, and larceny/ petty theft second degree Â“rst offense. Blair is being held at the Charlotte County Jail with a bond of $669,000, and remained in custody as of Saturday afternoon. On April 9, around 11:11 a.m., a woman robbed in front of Publix at Peachland Promenade Shopping Center. The Suspect implied he had a weapon before taking the womanÂs purse, keys and phone, CCSO had said. Then on May 1 around 6 a.m., an armed robbery was reported at the Circle K gas station at Tamiami Trail and Aqui Esta Drive. Also on May 1, around 6:15 a.m., an armed robbery occurred at the Marathon gas station on Edgewater Drive and Bayshore Road in Port Charlotte, CCSO had said. After receiving the crime stoppers tip, authorities said they identiÂ“ed a blue, Jeep Compass registered to BlairÂs mother, which matched the vehicle driven by the suspect for the two gas station robberies. The vehicle was seen on surveillance video from a neighboring business, and a witness provided a license plate that partially matched the tag. When deputies located Blair, they said he provided a false name and was also charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, and drug paraphernalia. While searching Blair, a gold iPhone was found disabled, Âindicat(ing) that the deviceÂs passcode was entered incorrectly too many times,ÂŽ CCSO stated in a press release. The phone also matched the description of a phone stolen during the Marathon gas station robbery. During BlairÂs questioning, deputies responded to a call about a Â“rearm on Beacon Drive, which matched the gun observed in the surveillance videos of the robberies, authorities said. A search warrant was ordered on BlairÂs home on Nugent Avenue in Port Charlotte. There, deputies found a pair of black Puma sweatpants and Nike shoes that matched those worn by the suspect in the robbery surveillance videos, according to CCSO. The victim in the Peachland Publix robbery identiÂ“ed Blair in a photo lineup, CCSO said. ÂThis investigation and subsequent arrest is an example of our community working together with law enforcement to qu ickly remove a dangerous criminal from the streets,ÂŽ said Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell.Email: Liz.Hardaway@yoursun.comCharlotte deputies arrest suspect in 3 armed robberies BLAIRSUBSCRIPTIONS Home Delivery Rates: Newspaper designated market: City ZoneCarrier home delivered 7 days.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019FROM PAGE ONE Vegetation has long since covered over bomb craters left decades ago and theyÂre more shallow now, but satellite images still show them. Fishing and watering holes were created, too. Nature seems to have been left largely unaffected by the past bombing. Or has it? Babcock-Webb is now part of a Âremedial investigationÂŽ involving the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its contractor, Parsons. ÂPrevious studies indicated the potential for contamination,ÂŽ states a draft of a project planning memo for an investigation into the area from March. ÂAdditional data is needed to characterize and delineate contamination, if present, in order to evaluate risk to human health and the environment,ÂŽ the memo states. Ralph Allen, a Â“shing captain who runs King Fisher Fleet in Punta Gorda, has recreated in Babcock-Webb for about 30 years. HeÂs become pretty familiar with about a fourth of it, and is very familiar with about 10 percent. In that time, Allen said he hasnÂt ever come across a remnant of the bombing or gunning from decades ago, although he was told about it by a former Babcock-Webb manager about 20 years ago. There will be public involvement in the governmentÂs remedial investigation under the Formerly Used Defense Sites Program (known as FUDS) when environmental sampling is set to begin. But there are no dates yet, according to DEP spokesperson Dee Ann Miller. Allen hadnÂt heard about the governmentÂs study, but said at least from what heÂs seen, it appears to be a healthy place and an underutilized resource. Still, that doesnÂt mean thereÂs unfounded concern. ÂThatÂs not to say there couldnÂt be something lurking,ÂŽ Allen said. ÂI think itÂs unlikely thereÂs a huge issue brewing, but itÂs better to be safe than sorry.ÂŽ FWC hasnÂt restricted any access while the investigation begins, just as it hadnÂt restricted access all those years before. ÂSince no ordnance has exploded in almost 70 years, there are no assumed health risks to users or animals,ÂŽ said FWC spokesperson Melody Kilborn. Kilborn said small bomb fragments, bullets and cases have been located from some of the former gunning and bombing ranges. ÂUp to this time, all fragments have been removed, but no dummy bombs or unexploded ordnances have been located.ÂŽ ItÂs premature to say whether any bomb fragments, or other munitions debris remain at the former military ranges, according to Miller. But that doesnÂt mean someone couldnÂt potentially come across something. ÂIf the public encounters a munition or suspected munition, the USACE encourages the public to recognize when you may have encountered a munition, and that munitions are dangerous, retreat without touching, moving or disturbing the object, noting its location, and report the object to local law enforcement by calling 911,ÂŽ Miller said. As far as future uses of Babcock-Webb, the governmentÂs recent memo notes Âno change is expected.ÂŽAssessing riskA fact sheet from the Corps on formerly used defense sites from 2015 noted it would be doing a remedial investigation and feasibility study at the former Fort Myers Bombing and Gunnery Range in Charlotte County, Âbecause safety is our primary concern.ÂŽ The fact sheet said small arms, and/or pieces of munitions, had not been found at the dive bombing and straÂ“ng ranges, but were found at the bombing ranges. It also said munitions debris Âdoes not pose an explosive hazard and no munitions or explosive materials have been identiÂ“ed.ÂŽ Still, the investigation will determine what might be present and in what amounts and locations, the fact sheet noted.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5FROM PAGE FOURa site inspection in 2009 involving reconnaissance and environmental sampling found Âan unacceptable human health risk due to direct exposure to lead in the surface soil or inhalation of re-suspended particulate matter may be present at the Air-to-Ground Gunnery Range.ÂŽ Unacceptable ecological risks from munitions may be present at four of the Â“ ve ranges, according to the memo. That comes from potential exposure to lead in the surface water at the demolition bombing range, from exposure to copper and lead in the surface water at the dive bombing range, from exposure to copper in surface soil and surface water at the straÂ“ ng range, and from exposure to copper and lead in surface soil and surface water at the gunnery range. In April, the DEP sent a letter to the Corps that highlighted two of the former military training ranges at Babcock-Webb to focus on. ÂIt appears the Demolition Bombing Range (craters, ejecta blankets) and the Air to Ground Gunnery Range (former targets and visible 0.50 caliber rounds), are the more likely ranges to Â“ nd munitions and explosives of concern,ÂŽ the letter stated. ÂIt would appear the lionÂs share of MC (munitions constituents) sampling would be in these two ranges.ÂŽ The letter also noted the DEP awaits a list of the Âthe Â“ nal contaminants of concern listÂŽ from the Corps. For people who recreate in Babcock-Webb, like Allen, this study seems to be for the best.

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019Remove proÂ“t from health insuranceEditor: Some candidates for the presidency are promoting Medicare for all, while others are saying we canÂt afford it and alleging it will cost ÂtrillionsÂŽ of dollars. It seems to me that to come to any decision on this, we need to know what it is costing us now. We hear statistics that indicate we now pay some of the highest health care costs on the planet and that we get very poor outcomes for our money. We know we pay way more for our prescription drugs than people do elsewhere in the world. But do we take into account the costs of private health insurance? Insurance company stocks are bought by investors who want to profit from them. In order for that to happen, all of us have to pay more for the insurance than our health care costs the insurance company. Whatever profit they make does nothing for our health. Single payer, or Medicare for all, would remove that amount. Has anyone done a totaling of what all the health insurance companyÂs profits are? The fact that many patients donÂt have health insurance causes them to become very ill before seeking treatment. When they are seen, it is in an emergency room, costing dearly. Who pays? We all do through higher costs on our bills. If everyone had health insurance, this wouldnÂt happen. It really seems to me that it is very reasonable to wonder about the profits made by the insurance companies, because they do not help our health in any way.Dorothy Gaylord Punta GordaWe must stop destroying FloridaEditor: I disagree with the paperÂs Viewpoint regarding, ÂToll roads could ease interstates.ÂŽ I donÂt believe the toll roads will pay for themselves. I do believe residents and tourists will ultimately end up paying for the roads. I researched but could not find one death during Irma attributed to someone not being able to evacuate. I did find emergency management directors complaining because people were evacuating that didnÂt have to. The director in Palm Beach County said, ÂWe have an over-evacuation problem.ÂŽ It is estimated that as many as 3 million people who evacuated were not in evacuation zones. Studies done since Irma have shown the evacuation was successful. The director of the IHRC at FIU said, ÂPretty much everybody who wanted to get out, got out.ÂŽ What makes Florida Florida is slowly but surely being decimated. Time after time, we justify paving over another lot, another acre, another hectare. And for what? So, FloridaÂs residents can pay for something that will serve to make the rich, richer? Every time we justify things like this, we adversely affect FloridaÂs ecosystem. Where will the wildlife displaced by this new highway go? What will happen to the farmland in that area? How much will the new highway affect the climate because of fewer trees and more asphalt? Might it even contribute to more and stronger hurricanes? When will we stop giving ourselves permission to destroy the Florida we love?Lee A. Hall EnglewoodEnd the coup; solve our problemsEditor: IÂve been watching Attorney General BarrÂs testimony today. I am disgusted at the amount of time, expense and effort to continue the investigation of President Trump instead of directing that effort to solving our ever-increasing problems. Our deficit is growing every day, we are being invaded at our borders by illegals, our infrastructure is crumbling and all I see is elected officials doing nothing but staging a hidden coup to impeach the president. Instead of trying to solve the problems we are facing, there is useless blathering by the Democrats and some Republicans. Our government has become a circus of ineffective politicians vying for the spotlight to discredit our president. Elections are coming in 2020 and I have yet to see any constructive progress towards solving our many problems. What will the Democrats run on? All they have to offer is their concerted effort to impeach President Trump. How I wish we had term limits (which our elected officials will never pass) so we could end the circus and direct our efforts to fixing whatÂs wrong with this country.Lois Almonte Port CharlotteDemocrats show lack of IQEditor: I believe in country above party and as I see the House DemocratsÂ behavior I wonder if one had to demonstrate a negative IQ in order to be appointed committee chairman. Maxine Waters called in bank CEÂs to castigate them about student loans, only to be informed by the CEOs that the government which Waters was a part of took over student loans years ago. Nadler is threatening hundreds of subpoenas. Does any rational person believe this is legitimate oversight? This kind of stupidity reflects on all of us as it tell us Democrats think we are so lacking in intellectual capacity as to believe such nonsense is sincere governing while they refuse to address immigration, health care and other issues which truly affect the lives of citizens. Many Democratic candidates promised to legislate, not investigate. How is that promise going?Sally Meier North PortGovernment must live within its meansEditor: What is a responsible government? It is a government that is fair to all itÂs citizens, both local and national. It is their responsibility to look after the worker, the retired and the poor, who live within their means and not solely to the rich and special interests. The taxes which we pay should be used for the things we need and not for the things we donÂt. Spending taxpayersÂ money recklessly only leads to disaster. The average citizen has to live within his or her means. We can not spend money that we do not have and the same should apply to our local government.Marvin Coad Port CharlotteIs Joe Biden pro-KKK?Editor: With reference to Joe Biden expressing concern for the Âsoul of this nationÂŽ by making reference to the presidentÂs response to the deadly clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, please consider the following: Excerpts from TrumpÂs statement shortly after the attack in Charlottesville: ÂAs I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of bigotry, hatred, and violence. Âƒ Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.ÂŽ Has Joe Biden explained how that thinking by the president is detrimental to the soul of our nation? If not, is his opposition to the president based on him being in favor of Âthe KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups?ÂŽRichard Metzger Port CharlotteRequire sidewalks when homes builtEditor: The writer who claimed a beneÂ“t to school children and seniors by installing sidewalks on Boundary Boulevard is misleading. The majority of residents in Rotonda are retired and have no school-age children walking to the bus stop. The seniors who would beneÂ“t from the sidewalks slated for a small section of Boundary Boulevard would be few. Why not require the builders of houses in Rotonda to put in sidewalks to county specs. Then Charlotte County could, at some later date, connect the pre-existing homes at a lower cost and in the areas that would beneÂ“t all Rotonda residents.Eric Christenson Rotonda WestVIEWPOINTPublisher Â„ Glen Nickerson Executive editor Â„ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor Â„ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor Â„ John Hackworth Email letters to firstname.lastname@example.org OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR POSITION: Any controversy over its initial handling aside, a regional hurricane shelter at Babcock Ranch will be a potential life-saving asset for Charlotte County.Barring an unlikely veto from Gov. Ron DeSantis, the Legislature has approved $8 million for a regional hurricane shelter at Babcock Ranch. Despite some misgivings and criticism, thatÂs good news. The shelter has been a hot topic of discussion for more than a month after Rep. Mike Grant, R-Port Charlotte, Â“led an appropriations request to help fund the facility. Charlotte County Commissioner Joe Tiseo was livid that the request was made without a public vetting. A handful of citizens also expressed concern that the facility would be too much of a sweetheart deal for Babcock Ranch, which would use it for athletic events when hurricanes are not in play. The Â“nal cost is a Â”oating target with a total of $10 million requested for the next Â“scal year Â„ including $8 million from the state. But, the appropriation includes a line that says between $3 million and $10 million may be requested from the state next year to complete the project, depending on costs and other investments. Babcock ofÂ“cials say they do not expect to request any more funding next year, however. WeÂve agreed these concerns are legitimate. But, they do not override the need for a hurricane shelter, nor the economic common sense of the Babcock location. Tiseo would rebuild Port Charlotte Middle School and have it conform to speciÂ“cs for a shelter. We like that idea too. But, no matter how high you build a new school, it is still in an area that is designated as a danger to Â”ood in a high storm surge. And, the cost would far exceed the possible $2 million of local money needed to fund the Babcock shelter. There are no locations we know of in Charlotte County where a shelter could be built Â„ or an existing building refurbished Â„ to shelter hundreds, or thousands, of people for less than $2 million. State Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, was a key player in pushing the deal through the Legislature after Grant initiated the idea. She is rooted in Lee County and, while that area has more than a couple of large arenas and facilities to serve as hurricane shelters, she understands the need for even more places of refuge. The fact that Lee County does have ample facilities dissuades the argument that Lee residents will Â“ll up the Babcock shelter. The idea that Babcock residents will take up much of the space is also a non-issue since those homes, like the proposed shelter, are on land that is high and dry and their homes are built to withstand the strongest of storms. The location isnÂt the most convenient for Charlotte County residents, weÂll agree with that. But there are two routes to get there, including using Interstate 75 and Bayshore Road, that make it more accessible than some would contend. As far as a sweetheart deal is concerned, there is no doubt Babcock likely will make good use of the facility. But, as Kitson pointed out, the Â“rst few years are normally a loss on the books of any similar facility. Babcock plans to absorb those losses while taking responsibility for upkeep and managing the facility. Kitson made a point of noting no money has been committed by Charlotte County so far. And, when the request comes up, it will all play out in the open, not behind closed doors. The public will have ample opportunity to voice concerns and/or opposition. In the end, the shelter appears to be a win-win situation for all involved.Misgivings aside, Babcock shelter will be asset HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7VIEWPOINT You stride purposefully into the living room and then Âƒ your mind goes blank. You canÂt remember what you planned to do. Or you memorize a short grocery list. But when you arrive at the supermarket all you can recall is yogurt. What else were you supposed to buy? Then there are those times you bump into whatÂs-hisname at work. Or struggle to dredge up the title of that book you wanted to buy or movie you saw last week. Such lapses are presumed to be a normal feature of the aging brain. They canÂt be helped. Or can they? Researchers at NorthwesternÂs Feinberg School of Medicine and Boston University report tantalizing progress in related experiments to boost shortand longer-term memory. The Â“rst type is Âworking memory.ÂŽ ThatÂs whatÂs used to remind yourself of a phone number you just heard, or to take your medication. Then thereÂs longer-term memory that helps you recall something that happened weeks or years ago. In one set of experiments at Boston University, researchers jolted the brains of people over age 60 with a mild electrical current. Study participants donned what look like shower caps with electrodes protruding (Think: Grade Z 1950s sciÂ“ movies). No, the therapy doesnÂt hurt. ItÂs more like a tingling or itching sensation, test subjects say. Result: After the zapping, study participants over 60 performed a certain memory task as well as those in their 20s, The Associated Press reports. In a separate study, researchers at NorthwesternÂs Feinberg School applied high-frequency magnetic stimulation to areas on the surface of the brain connected to the hippocampus, which is the memory vault of the brain. Researchers gave subjects a difÂ“cult memory test, showing them about 80 objects in certain settings Â„ a key in a kitchen, for instance, or a toothbrush in a shed scene. Later, the subjects were asked to recall which objects appeared in which scenes. Before the treatment, older adults scored far worse in this memory tests than younger ones. A day after the treatment, the older adults performed at the same level as people in their 20s and 30s. Again, thereÂs no pain involved. Shocking and exciting? ÂTotally,ÂŽ NorthwesternÂs Joel Voss tells us. Memory ability peaks in the early 20s, he says, and then slowly declines.The research aims to help people with age-related memory challenges Â„ all of us Â„ but may also prove helpful in treating early stages of AlzheimerÂs, Voss says. Unfortunately, the effects of those treatments wear off after a few hours or a few days. But we can imagine a time when the forgetful could get a mild memory zap with an implantable chip, or maybe via a smartphone app. Who wouldnÂt trade a momentary tingle for days or weeks of great memory? Seniors are often told to exercise their brains to preserve mental acuity. There are plenty of programs, though most of them are more effective at lightening your wallet than improving your memory. But the research suggests that instead of doing crossword puzzles and working Sudokus, the aging mind can be jolted to a more powerful state. Just imagine Âƒ a world without lost car keys.Can memory improvement be just a zap away? CHICAGO TRIBUNEANOTHER VIEW If Shakespeare had titled Attorney General William BarrÂs appearance on Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he would have called it ÂMuch Ado About Nothing.ÂŽ Democrats seized on the supposed ÂbombshellÂŽ that special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Barr expressing dissatisfaction with the attorney generalÂs four-page memo to Congress from March 24, declaring it Âdid not fully capture the context, nature, and substanceÂŽ of his report. Barr told senators upon receiving the special counselÂs letter that he immediately called Mueller and said ÂBob, whatÂs with the letter? Why donÂt you just pick up the phone and call me if thereÂs an issue?ÂŽ HereÂs a better question he should have asked: ÂBob, why didnÂt you accept my offer to review the memo before it was released to the public?ÂŽ The fact is, Barr gave Mueller the chance to go over the document, and offer comments or suggested edits, before the attorney general made it public. Mueller declined to do so. Sorry, you donÂt get to turn down an opportunity to review a document before release, and then complain about it later if you donÂt like how it is being covered by the media. And putting his complaints in a letter Â„ Âgoing to paperÂŽ in Justice Department parlance Â„ the details of which (surprise, surprise) were then leaked to the media on the eve of BarrÂs testimony, was dishonorable. The entire episode hurts MuellerÂs reputation more than it does BarrÂs. Moreover, ofÂ“cials told The Washington Post, ÂWhen Barr pressed (Mueller) whether he thought BarrÂs letter was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not, but felt that the media coverage of the letter was misinterpreting the investigation.ÂŽ So, there was nothing wrong with BarrÂs letter per se. What Mueller really wanted was for Barr to release more information Â„ speciÂ“cally the introduction and executive summaries of each volume of the report, which he had Âmarked with redactions to remove any information that potentially could be protected by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure that concerned declination decisions; or that related to a charged case.ÂŽ But, as Barr testiÂ“ed on Wednesday, even if he had agreed that releasing the introductions and executive summaries was a good idea (which he did not), he could not have done so because they required additional redactions from the intelligence community. Barr did not want to release the report piecemeal. ÂI thought what we should do is focus on getting the full report out as quickly as possible,ÂŽ he said. The attorney general did just that. Regardless, the whole issue was moot by the time Barr testiÂ“ed, because the entire 448-page report Â„ including the introduction and executive summaries Â„ has been released to the public. That did not stop Democrats from using it to attack BarrÂs credibility. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told Barr Âyou lied to CongressÂŽ and had Âchosen to be the presidentÂs lawyerÂŽ rather than AmericaÂs lawyer. She announced that she had asked the Justice Department inspector general to investigate his conduct. She called on Barr to resign. ÂBeing attorney general of the United States is a sacred trust. You have betrayed that trust. America deserves better.ÂŽ It was a disgusting partisan display. Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., rightly chastised Hirono, declaring, ÂYou slandered this man from top to bottom.ÂŽ Far from lying, Barr has bent over backward to be open with Congress and the American people. He overrode Justice Department regulations, and released the full Mueller report with only minor redactions. ThatÂs virtually unprecedented. And he has made an almost completely unredacted version of the report available to members of Congress, who now have access to all but one-tenth of 1 percent of the document. And while the Justice Department worked overtime to speed the redaction process, he released a memo which accurately informed the American people about MuellerÂs bottom line conclusions. It is a fact that Mueller declared that his Âinvestigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.ÂŽ And it is a fact that while the report Âdoes not exonerate himÂŽ of obstruction it also Âdoes not conclude that the President committed a crime.ÂŽ For two years, Trump was falsely accused of being a Russian agent and colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin Â„ including by many of those on Capitol Hill now attacking BarrÂs credibility. If members of Congress want examples of dishonesty and efforts to mislead the American people, they can start by looking in the mirror. Follow Marc A. Thiessen on Twitter, @marcthiessen.The Barr hearing was much ado about nothing Marc A. THIESSENWashington Post Eight-year-old Liam Daly became an internet sensation when he penned a letter to his grandfather, William Barr, while sitting in the front row at BarrÂs conÂ“rmation hearing in January. ÂDear Grandpa,ÂŽ he wrote. ÂYou are doing great so far. But I know you still will.ÂŽ Alas for Liam, and for all of us, it was not to be. Now, just weeks on the job as President TrumpÂs attorney general, Grandpa has disgraced himself. The speed with which Barr trashed a reputation built over decades is stunning, even by Trump administration standards. Before, Barr was known as the attorney general to President George H.W. Bush and an minence grise of the Washington legal community. Now he is known for betraying a friend, lying to Congress and misrepresenting the Mueller report in a way that excused the presidentÂs misbehavior and let Russia off the hook. Three weeks ago, Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., asked Barr about reports that special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIÂs team complained that BarrÂs four-page summary of their work didnÂt Âadequately or accuratelyÂŽ portray their Â“ndings. ÂDo you know what theyÂre referencing?ÂŽ Crist asked. ÂNo, I donÂt,ÂŽ Barr replied under oath, speculating that they Âprobably wanted more put out.ÂŽ Grandpa was Â“bbing. Thanks to The Washington PostÂs reporting, we now know that two weeks before Barr denied knowledge of the Mueller teamÂs displeasure, he received a letter from Mueller complaining that BarrÂs summary Âdid not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this ofÂ“ceÂs work and conclusionsÂŽ and resulted in Âpublic confusion.ÂŽ Barr, caught in Â”agrante delicto in his deception, told senators Wednesday that Âthe question was relating to unidentiÂ“ed membersÂŽ of MuellerÂs team, not Mueller himself Â„ a technical answer that might get him off for perjury but doesnÂt avoid the conclusion that he deliberately misled Congress and the public. Why didnÂt Barr disclose the Mueller letter when Crist asked the question? Barr replied that Crist had posed Âa very different question.ÂŽ Um, right. Of equal concern, Barr rejected MuellerÂs requests to release more of the report to clear up the confusion. ÂAt that point, it was my baby,ÂŽ Barr told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. ÂIt was my decision how and when to make it public, not Bob MuellerÂs.ÂŽ It was his baby, and he smothered it Â„ thus allowing BarrÂs misrepresentation of MuellerÂs report (characterized by Trump as Âtotal exonerationÂŽ) to harden. BarrÂs mistreatment of Mueller is all the more appalling because, during his conÂ“rmation hearing, Barr boasted that the two men and their wives were Âgood friendsÂŽ and would remain so. Barr reportedly told a senator privately that he and Mueller were Âbest friends,ÂŽ that their wives attended Bible study together and that Mueller attended the weddings of BarrÂs children. If so, BarrÂs betrayal reminds us: If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog. In addition to his unilateral clearing of Trump on obstruction of justice (something Mueller did not do), Barr also echoed TrumpÂs claim that there was Âno collusionÂŽ (a question Mueller did not address) and that there had been ÂspyingÂŽ against TrumpÂs campaign. Barr continued undermining Mueller on Wednesday, calling MuellerÂs letter to him Âa bit snittyÂŽ and saying Mueller should have ended the investigation if he didnÂt think it in his purview to say whether Trump committed a crime. And Barr eagerly played TrumpÂs defense lawyer. MuellerÂs Â“nding that Trump repeatedly leaned on White House counsel Don McGahn to get Mueller Â“red? Barr devised the implausible explanation that Trump only wanted Mueller replaced by Âanother special counsel.ÂŽ And Trump instructing McGahn to say publicly that Trump didnÂt order Mueller Â“red? ÂNot a crime,ÂŽ Barr argued. Barr also defended his assertion that Trump Âfully cooperatedÂŽ with the investigation, even though he refused to be interviewed and tried to get then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to unrecuse himself and shut down the inquiry. ÂI donÂt see any conÂ”ict between that and fully cooperating with the investigation,ÂŽ Barr reasoned. Even BarrÂs choice of pronouns Â„ Âwe have not waived the executive privilege,ÂŽ he said Â„ showed he was TrumpÂs lawyer, not AmericaÂs attorney general. Repeatedly, Barr said it didnÂt matter that Trump had deceived the public. ÂIÂm not in the business of determining when lies are told to the American people,ÂŽ he said. But now Barr, by misrepresenting his dealings with Mueller, has gotten himself into the business of lying to the American people. Even an 8-year-old knows lying is wrong, whether itÂs legal or not.

Charlotte County Public Works has been repairing and realigning pins that hold down the drawbridge. The county Â“rst closed the bridge to boat trafÂ“c Wednesday. ÂItÂs a wear issue,ÂŽ said Public Works spokesperson Tracy Doherty. ÂThe bridge is open to vehicular trafÂ“c and scheduled opening for boats are planned on the top of the hour from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Then, on demand overnight.ÂŽ Public Works started scheduling limited openings of the drawbridge to boat trafÂ“c Thursday and will continue until further notice. The county anticipates the contractor to be able to fully open the bridge to both vehicle and boat trafÂ“c next week. For more information, call Patrick Ferriter at 941-626-1825 or email him at Patrick.Ferriter@ CharlotteCountyFL.gov.Not a firstA year ago in February, a malfunctioning switch and burnt-out solenoid led to temporary closures of the bridge to motorists and boaters. At the time, Public Works project Engineer Chuck Koons explained to the Sun how two pins on the drawbridge connect and determine when vehicle trafÂ“c can safely cross the bridge. The county had just invested $10 million in a two-year project refurbishing of the Tom Adams Bridge. The $10 million project Â„ paid with Charlotte CountyÂs share of gas taxes Â„ saw the construction of a new and higher bridge tender house, electrical and mechanical repairs, new sidewalks and other work to the bridge. In 1964, the Tom Adams Bridge Â“rst opened, replacing what had been a wooden bridge, built by Manasota KeyÂs Chadwick family in 1927, according to Sun historical columnist Diana Harris. The public Anger Fishing Pier at the southeastern foot of the Tom Adams Bridge is a remnant of the wooden bridge. The drawbridge itself is named for Thomas Burton Adams Jr., a state politician who served as secretary of state, as well as lieutenant governor whose career was somewhat checkered with scandals. Adams, however, was integral in garnering the state funding necessary for the construction of the bridge, according to HarrisÂ research.Email: Steve.Reilly@yoursun.comTom Adams drawbridge undergoing repairs SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYSailboaters should think twice before passing under the Tom Adams Bridge in Englewood.

ÂPine View has a competitive environment that motivates students to excel,ÂŽ said Sachit Gali, a 17-year-old senior at the school.

More than 17,000 public high schools were ranked using six factors, including college readiness; math and reading proÂ“ciency; math and reading performance; graduation rates; college curriculum breadth, which includes 12th grade students who took or passed AP or IB exams; and underserved student performance, which considers how black, Hispanic and low-income students performed on standardized tests. Gali noted that Pine View SchoolÂs learning environment has contributed to his own academic success. ÂItÂs been a combination of my peers always encouraging me to push myself and my teachers who have always supported me and given me a strong educational foundation,ÂŽ Gali said.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 night, they neutered future citizen-driven constitutional amendments, including two aiming for the 2020 ballot and loathed by Republicans. One raises the minimum wage. The other allows Âenergy choiceÂŽ in an effort to expand solar energy options. ÂThese jokers are so owned by special interests that they actually thumbed their noses at democracy and the people,ÂŽ tweeted the trial attorney John Morgan, who is sponsoring the minimum wage measure, on Saturday. ÂIt is why we hate politicians with a special vengeance!ÂŽ Democrats, the minority party in both chambers, lacked the leadership or strategy to make much difference, and in many cases submitted willingly to their conservative colleagues. In the Senate, they put up no resistance to the Senate presidentÂs top priority, an idea from the Jeb Bush era that includes building a massive toll road through rural parts of the state. It gained traction despite any evidence the project was warranted or coordinated with the necessary participants, such as neighboring states like Georgia or the rural counties where the roads would go. Yet after little discussion or debate, and heavy criticism from environmental groups, only one Senate Democrat voted against it. Democrats also repeatedly gave up one of the only tools they have to challenge Republican bills: they can slow down the process by tacking on amendments to them. At the least, it can drag the bill-making process to a crawl and annoy the other party. At best, it can be used to run out the clock on FloridaÂs 60-day session. Yet, at a critical stop in the Senate, Democrats withdrew all of their amendments on a highly controversial measure to allow teachers to carry guns in classrooms. Democrats did so in exchange for a vague promise from Republicans to at least consider not arming teachers. They didnÂt. That bill is now on the governorÂs desk. In the House, Minority Leader Kionne McGhee of Miami went a step further. He allowed Republicans to waive the rules and allow bills to be heard and voted on the same day, drastically speeding up the process. The move was so strange that frustrated members of McGheeÂs own party complained he wasnÂt doing enough to Â“ght Republicans. ÂThank you for giving us a fair shake,ÂŽ McGhee told the Florida HouseÂs conservative speaker, Jos Oliva, on Saturday. But Democrats lost this year by having a Âget along, go alongÂŽ mentality, said Rep. Anna Eskamani, D-Orlando, one of several freshman Democrats in the House who would speak up on issues when more senior members were silent. She said Democratic leadership intentionally kept her off of committees that heard the most controversial issues. ÂThatÂs where some of the tension in the caucus erupted from,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe have to be a loyal opposition. ThatÂs why we were elected to do this work. If we just go along to get along, then weÂre already giving up the very little power that we have in this space.ÂŽ But Republican lawmakers also had a valuable incentive to Â“ght harder than before for their priorities. Over the last two decades, the Florida Supreme Court has been a thorn in RepublicansÂ side, routinely rejecting their legislation as unconstitutional. But when Gov. Ron DeSantis was elected last year, he replaced three justices with more conservative members. There are now no justices who were appointed by Democrats. Lawmakers this year took direct aim at the new court, resurrecting ideas that had been decided by the old court just months earlier. Perhaps none of those discarded ideas were more signiÂ“cant than allowing students to get public-money vouchers to spend at private schools, funded by the pot of per-student money typically used to fund districts. It was an idea born decades ago by former Gov. Jeb Bush. In 2006, however, the Supreme Court rejected it. With the court neutralized, this year, the Legislature passed it Â„ and Bush came to Tallahassee for a victory lap. Unlike under former Gov. Rick Scott, who lawmakers complained was not communicative, DeSantis and his staff worked mostly in concert with the Legislature, applying pressure in public and in private to get his priorities passed. Lawmakers passed a ban on Âsanctuary cities,ÂŽ one of DeSantisÂ campaign priorities, even though it had failed for several years in a row and lawmakers could identify no city or policy that was actually a ÂsanctuaryÂŽ for undocumented immigrants. Meanwhile, the new leaders of FloridaÂs House and Senate seemed more willing to trade with each other. Before session began, Speaker Oliva of Miami Lakes huddled with his closest lieutenants to craft a master list of priorities, with 20 devoted to OlivaÂs dearest cause: imposing free-market principles of health care. It was a goal that had eluded Republican lawmakers for decades, oftentimes stymied by the more cautious Senate. But Oliva Â”agged it early on as his legislative make-or-break Â„ and this year, the Senate listened. Or, rather, the Senate traded. In exchange for sweeping changes to hospital regulations that Oliva desired, Senate President Bill Galvano got his top priority Â„ the toll roads project, which Democrats let him have. The horse trading between the chambers was so brazen that Republican Sen. Tom Lee of Thonotosassa told his colleagues it Âstinks to high heavenÂŽ and Âmakes a mockery of the entire committee process of this institution.ÂŽ Another item on OlivaÂs wishlist Â„ pursuing the importation of prescription drugs from abroad Â„ also found a powerful advocate in DeSantis himself, who publicly lobbied on behalf of the idea during the session. Even smaller issues that had become perennial session Â“ghts were accomplished this year. Republicans continued to erode the power of cities and counties, and they passed reforms that were a victory to insurers and business groups. Oliva saw it as the product of years of relationships paying off and a shared belief that Âfor government to get a lot accomplished, it must be very functional.ÂŽ ÂWe committed to that early, and we kept it even through difÂ“cult times,ÂŽ he said. Times writers Elizabeth Koh, Samantha J. Gross and Emily L. Mahoney contributed to this report.REPUBLICANFROM PAGE 1Feb. 2020, the department will report the data to the Governor and the Florida legislature.

One of the columns I saved was about homestead portability. That saved me a lot of money. You may want to share my experience with portability because it could possibly save your readers a lot of money, too. I sold my homesteaded home in Charlotte County, and then bought another home in a different Florida county. Having saved your column, I knew I was eligible to claim homestead portability in the county I moved to. The county I moved to denied my application for portability. I asked them why. The only answer I got was ÂWe donÂt know. The system rejected it.ÂŽ Your column said the application for portability must be made at the property appraiserÂs ofÂ“ ce in the county you are moving to. But getting denied without so much as a reason didnÂt seem right. So, I went back to Charlotte County to see if they could help. The Property AppraiserÂs staff in Charlotte CountyÂs went to bat for me. They were able to verify that I was entitled to portability. It was approved. Had I not been educated regarding my eligibility to claim homestead portability, I would have paid thousands of dollars in excess property taxes in the following years. I am very happy in the community I moved to. I have made many friends here, but I havenÂt met anyone else who even knows what portability is. Maybe you should write another column about it. And let people know they should not just walk away if the county they move to denies their application. Answer: Thank You, Joe. You made my day. Providing useful information that is not readily available elsewhere is a guiding light behind these columns. I will be happy to forward your advice to your fellow readers. ThatÂs the least I can do since you already wrote half my column for me. First, hereÂs a quick explanation of the homestead beneÂ“ t. If you own a home in Florida, and it is your principle residence, you can apply for a homestead exemption with your countyÂs property appraiser. This homestead exemption entitles you to signiÂ“ cant discounts on your Ad Valorem property taxes. Ad Valorem property taxes are the property taxes you pay based on the market value of your property. Based on this market value each year, the county establishes the Âassessed valueÂŽ of each property. The tax collector multiplies the assessed value by the millage rate to determine the Ad Valorem taxes due. If your home is homesteaded, the tax collector will reduce your assessed value before it applies the millage rate. The Â“ rst homestead exemption it applies amounts to $50,000. So, if your homesteaded home has an assessed value of $200,000, you would pay taxes based on a value of $150,000 rather than $200,000. Additional exemptions apply. These homestead exemptions are the most obvious beneÂ“ t to being homesteaded. But there is another homestead beneÂ“ t that can save you signiÂ“ cantly more than the standard exemptions just discussed. It is the ÂSave Our HomesÂŽ (SOH) beneÂ“ t. Save Our Homes refers to FloridaÂs 1995 constitutional amendment that limits annual increases of your assessed value to 3 percent, or the increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichever is less. LetÂs drive this home using real data. LetÂs say you bought a singlefamily home in Charlotte County for $117,000 and homesteaded it in 2012. That Â“ rst year, you paid property taxes based on an assessed value of $117,000. WeÂre using $117,000 because that was the median sales price for a SF home in Charlotte during 2012. In 2018, the median sales price had risen from $117,000 in 2012 to $221,000. So, itÂs safe to assume the home you bought in 2012 for $117,000 was worth $221,000 in 2018. ThatÂs an increase of 89 percent. So, without the homestead or SOH protections, your Ad Valorem property taxes would have skyrocketed by about 89 percent from 2012 to 2018. However, if your home was homesteaded, your property taxes from 2012 to 2018 only increased by 9.2 percent! ThatÂs because the annual increases in your accessed value, upon which your taxes are based, was capped by the CPI. From 2012 to 2018, it Portability can slash property taxesOne owner cut taxes by $13,000 Brett SLATTERYColumnist SLATTERY | 2B
Page 2B E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019OUR TOWN Â„ SUNCOAST HOMES averaged just 1.7 percent per year. So, thanks to your SOH beneÂ“t, instead of your assessed value rising in tandem with your market value, it was capped by the CPI to just $127,795 in 2018. ThatÂs a huge tax savings, year after year. The assessed value of $127,795 in 2018 is known as your SOH basis (Save Our Homes basis). Now letÂs discuss portability. SOH portability (aka homestead portability), means that if you sell your homesteaded home, and then homestead a different home in Florida, you may be eligible to transfer the SOH basis to your new home. So, if for example, you sell your home for $221,000 and purchase a replacement home in Florida for $221,000, you can transfer your SOH basis of $127,795 to the new home so youÂll pay property taxes on $127,795 instead of $221,000. And like before, annual increases in your assessed value continue to be capped. Taking this to another level, I reported in my Aug. 23, 2014, column how a homeowner in Boca had reduced her property taxes by $13,000 thanks to portability.

Both involve a lot of paperwork, time and back-and-forth communication. You may never hear back from all (or any) of those job prospects, but youÂre likely to reap rewards by shopping for mortgage rates with a handful of lenders. To put this mortgage shopping savings theory to the test, Freddie Mac conducted a study last year to Â“nd out how much money borrowers potentially leave on the table when they donÂt shop around. For a typical $250,000 mortgage, a borrower who gets one extra rate quote saves an average of $1,435 over the life of the loan, with 80 percent of those borrowers saving between $966 and $2,086 by shopping one additional lender, Freddie Mac reported. The more you shop around, the more savings you rack up. Borrowers who get Â“ve rate quotes save $2,914 Â„ on average Â„ with 80 percent of those shoppers who get Â“ve quotes saving between $2,089 and $3,904. While a few thousand dollars may not seem like much spread out over a 30-year mortgage, consider this: Many homebuyers struggle to save enough cash to cover their down payment and/or closing costs. Saving $3,000 over the course of a mortgage because you shopped around can equate to two monthsÂ of mortgage payments.The case for shopping aroundGetting rate quotes from more than one mortgage lender means that consumers are more likely to get a better interest rate and save money now and in the long term, says Doug McManus, director of financial research at Freddie Mac. ÂWith lower monthly payments and lower fixed fees, the loan will be more affordable and, thus, safer,ÂŽ McManus says. The legwork involved in rate-shopping can be daunting. A mortgage broker can do the work for you, or you can visit multiple lenders on your own to do the research. Many lenders provide free rate quotes online or by phone after youÂve provided a few details, such as your credit score range, loan amount, term (length of your loan) and the loan type youÂre interested in. You can also check out BankrateÂs mortgage tool, which allows you to see rates from multiple lenders who offer home loans in your area. To get a solid rate offer, however, you have to get preapproved for a mortgage with each lender. When you apply for a mortgage, a lender thoroughly vets your income, finances, employment and credit to determine how much you can borrow and what interest rate you qualify for. With home prices still rising, itÂs better to minimize your costs as much as you can on the borrowing side Â„ and shopping around for a mortgage is the best way to do that. ÂConsumers may have hundreds or thousands of dollars more in their pockets. Not a bad return for a few phone calls or clicks,ÂŽ McManus says.Saving money is just one of the benefitsNabbing a lower interest rate and lower payment over the life of your loan is a big win. But itÂs not the only reason it pays to shop around. By comparing lenders, youÂll see variations in lender origination fees, points, mortgage insurance premiums and third-party fees. YouÂll also get a sense of how long it takes lenders to close a loan, how well they communicate and their customer service philosophies. ItÂs natural that most homebuyers want to get the lowest rate possible, but they shouldnÂt ignore these other nuances when choosing a lender, says Joe Zeibert, senior director of products, pricing and credit for Ally Home. When you get loan estimates from different lenders, pay close attention to the fees, Zeibert advises. If one lender charges higher fees than others, ask the lender to clarify what the fees are for and if they can be negotiated. Shopping with a variety of lenders Â„ big banks, credit unions, online lenders and regional banks, and a mortgage broker Â„ helps you compare whoÂs charging what. You also get a sense of what kind of customer service youÂll receive, based on how smoothly the communication goes and how your lender processes loan applications. What youÂll pay in mortgage points (also called Âdiscount pointsÂŽ) is another reason itÂs worth getting more than one rate quote. Points are an up-front fee borrowers pay to buy down the loanÂs interest rate. One point equals about 1 percent of the loan amount, and lenders structure their points differently. Some cash-strapped buyers who want to minimize out-of-pocket closing costs may prefer a slightly higher interest rate in order to avoid paying points at all, especially if they donÂt plan to stay in their home long. But if you want to stay put for the long haul, shopping around to find a lender that offers the right mix of affordable rates and discount points can save you thousands, Zeibert says.Bottom lineFinding the right mortgage may be just as important as finding your dream home. You donÂt want to risk leaving thousands of dollars on the table because you didnÂt bother to shop. DonÂt forget that choosing a mortgage is a long-term relationship, Zeibert says. ÂItÂs complicated,ÂŽ Zeibert says of the mortgage process, Âso you want to work with someone whoÂll hold your hand in the process Â„ and not just go where youÂll get the cheapest discount. You might refinance or buy another home in the future, so you want to work with people you can trust.ÂŽSave money by shopping for a mortgage with multiple lendersREVIANCE DERMATOLOGY3171 Bobcat Village Center Rd.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5BOUR TOWN Â„ SUNCOAST HOMESBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERJurors summoned to the Charlotte County courthouse Wednesday didnÂt get called to the courtroom, but they did get coffee, doughnuts, and a certiÂ“cate from the Clerk of Court to celebrate Juror Appreciation Week. ÂThe bad news is we dragged you in for nothing,ÂŽ Judge George Richards told the jurors, explaining the defendant had taken a plea agreement just before the case would have gone to trial. ÂThe good news is you donÂt have to spend a few days with me.ÂŽ As the 29 potential jurors checked in Wednesday morning, Clerk of Clerk Roger Eaton thanked them for performing for their civic duty and discussed the technology updates heÂs made since taking ofÂ“ce, allowing jurors to check in online, so when they arrive they only have to scan a code in one of the two juror kiosks. ÂWhat used to take an hour to check everybody in only took a few minutes,ÂŽ he said. ÂBecause again, we value your time.ÂŽ Eaton said Charlotte County typically has a much higher jury turnout than other counties, typically around 50 to 60 percent. Judge Richards mentioned to the jurors in another county he was aware of, they sent out 300 summonses and only eight people showed up. ÂYou canÂt pick a jury from eight people,ÂŽ he said. ÂSomebody asked me, why canÂt we have professional jurors? IÂm going to ask you. The state of Florida is the people that bring the charges against you. The state of Florida is the entity thatÂs seeking to convict you. And now the state of FloridaÂs paying those jurors? Who wants to be tried under those circumstances? Anybody? Because I donÂt. ThatÂs why weÂve got to have fair and impartial jurors that have no investment in the case. Without people like yourselves, the system would not work.ÂŽ Richards stated while the jury system isnÂt perfect, itÂs as close as you can get to being perfect. In most other countries, people are presumed guilty until proven innocent. ÂNowhere else can you get a fair trial,ÂŽ he said. The jurors were excused shortly after 9 a.m., and seemed to agree it was an easy, painless process. ÂI didnÂt quite know what to expect, but it went so quickly,ÂŽ said Susan Keefer. ÂIt was worth it in the end.ÂŽ Veteran Zannie Morrison was also pleased with the experience and said heÂd been looking forward to serving as a juror, since he never has before. ÂI feel like itÂs my duty, just like serving in the Navy,ÂŽ he said.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgClerk of Court celebrates Juror Appreciation WeekJurors thanked for civic duty with coffee, doughnuts, and certificates SUN PHOTO BY ANNE EASKERZannie Morrison and Susan Keefer received certiÂ“cates for Juror Appreciation Week Wednesday.

ÂTranslating was hard,ÂŽ she said. ÂI got homesick.ÂŽ But eventually, after moving back to the Philippines and returning to the U.S. with her husband, she found over 200 other people with her same heritage, making the homesickness subside. She joined the Filipino-American Society of Charlotte County, which held their annual potluck picnic Saturday in Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda. Here they celebrated Flores de Mayo, a religious holiday in the Philippines. They had plenty of authentic dishes, dancing and conversations to celebrate. Less than 400 people are Filipino in Charlotte County, according to the most recent demographic U.S Census data from 2017. ÂYou donÂt have to be Filipino to join,ÂŽ said the societyÂs president, Carolyn Otakan.

OBITUARIESAnimal hoarding: When compassion becomes crueltyAnother recent investigation and reporting of an animal hoarding case in Charlotte County raises the question, is there actually an increase in animal hoarding, or is there increased awareness of this horribly neglectful activity? Animal hoarders were originally referred to as animal Âcollectors.ÂŽ Since collectors also collect stamps, coins, and other positive ventures, the negative animal hoarding took effect. In the 1990s, there were several high proÂ“le cases from different areas of the country that were publicized nationally. An investigation by the New York Humane Association and The Humane Society of the United States successfully forced the closure of an animal hoarder disguised as a rescue haven. More than 1,200 dogs and other animals were being kept in deplorable conditions. Many were suffering from severe neglect, while others had died from disease and the cold winter elements. Although an investigation involving 1,200 animals is staggering, the numbers of animals conÂ“scated from hoarding cases have ranged from under 20 to several hundred. It is interesting to note that the defendant involved with the 1,200 animals was charged with animal cruelty a year after being written up in a ReaderÂs Digest article as a Âmodern day Dr. Doolittle.ÂŽ A study published in Public Health Reports in 1999 by Dr. Gary Patronek, a veterinarian who studied animal hoarding while with TuftÂs University and is the founder of the Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium, described an animal hoarder as: ÂSomeone who accumulates a large number of animals while failing to provide minimal standards of nutrition, sanitation and veterinary care; who fails to act on the deteriorating condition of the animals, including disease, starvation and even death; who allows severe overcrowding and extreme unsanitary conditions, while creating a negative effect on their own health and well-being, as well as that of other household members.ÂŽ It is fair to say that this description, along with scientiÂ“c Â“ndings from more than 100 cases, still holds true today. These Â“ndings include the fact that 76 percent of hoarders are female and 54 percent are over 60 years old (many starting in their 30s), most are single, divorced or widowed, and almost half live alone. Animals consume their lives. They are addicted to the collection and hoarding of animals. Hoarders are in denial of the neglect and suffering they are causing. Many are oblivious to the fact that they have caused the death of animals from disease and starvation. They continue to act as though the animals are still alive. I believe the scientiÂ“c community, as well as our courts, should continue studies on animal hoarding. We know it is a compulsive disorder that can take over the life and mind of an individual. Most of us in the animal care, rescue and protection business measure the success of animal cruelty convictions by the severity of the sentence. We applaud the court when an animal abuser is sent to jail. Not to be confused with cruelties associated with puppy mills, back yard breeders and other activities involving large numbers of animals, animal hoarding is a sickness. It has been proven that without supervision most animal hoarders sentenced to jail will start hoarding again when they are released. It is generally recommend by those that have studied or worked multiple hoarder cases that effective sentencing by the court should include immediate relief of the suffering of the animals involved, continuous monitoring of the hoardersÂ activities (usually through the local animal control or humane society) and a required psychological evaluation of and assistance for the hoarder. This combined approach has a better chance of avoiding future hoarding. Animals are suffering everywhere from hoarding. The Animal Legal Defense Fund estimates that there are as many as 250,000 hoarder cases each year. Just one large case can place a tremendous strain on animal control agencies and humane societies charged with the investigation and conÂ“scation. Animal hoarders have spent all their money on their addiction, so Â“ning them to reimburse the agencies does not work. Animal hoarding task forces have been formed in some areas, along with animal hoarding databases, to better identify and monitor potential hoarders. One thing is certain: It does take a team effort to reduce the number of animals forced to suffer in this tragic way. This phenomena may not be entirely preventable, but I think more can be done to reduce the numbers of people and animals suffering from this horrible life of neglect.

Today, May 5 is celebrated more in the United States than in any other country Â„ including Mexico. After 1960s LatinAmerican activists raised cultural awareness for the underappreciated holiday, it wasnÂt long before Modelo and Corona jumped on the cerveza wagon to promote Cinco de Mayo big-time. Ever since, despite honorable historic roots, itÂs become a big American excuse to party. Nielsen reported that in 2013 Americans bought more than $600 million worth of beer for Cinco de Mayo Â„ more than on Super Bowl Sunday or St. PatrickÂs Day. In 2017, Corona somehow got clearance to turn the iconic Times Square New YearÂs Eve ball into a gigantic lime to drop on May 5. So, if you need to recover from Derby Day mint juleps, there are more independent local Mexican-owned cantinas than ever, all eager to cure you with cerveza, margaritas and tacos.

Feeling FitPort Charlotte Â€ Punta Gorda Â€ North Port Â€ Englewood Â€ ArcadiaSunday, May 5, 2019www.yoursun.comFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORKYouÂve heard the uplifting stories: Passersby dropping scads of cash into charity collection buckets or anonymous donors paying off hospital bills for strangers. And people helping victims during storms and natural disasters. These acts of kindness make everybody feel good. ThereÂs a science behind that phenomenon called Âloving kindness.ÂŽ And research shows that learning and practicing loving kindness can profoundly affect your attitude, outlook and even your health. Better yet, you can rewire your brain to be more present and kinder to others, giving your mood a daily boost. These three simple practices will help get you started.LOVING-KINDNESS MEDITATIONLKM is a quiet, contemplative practice that focuses thought on your heart region and encourages warm, tender thoughts, possibly about a loved one. In one study, people who practiced LKM an hour a week felt greater positive emotions Â„ love, contentment, joy Â„ while interacting with others. Documented health beneÂ“ts of practicing LKM include: Â€ Reduced pain and tension from migraines Â€ Reduced symptoms of depression Â€ Possibly slowing the aging process. Studies have found that women who practice LKM have longer telomeres, which are like little end-caps on your DNA. Shorter telomeres have been associated with faster aging. Maybe the best news is that even small doses of LKM can help. One study found that a 10-minute session of LKM increased feelings of social connection and positive feelings toward others.ACTS OF KINDNESSThis oneÂs so simple: Intentionally set a goal to be kinder to others. Express sincerely felt kindness to a co-worker. Make a special effort to extend kind words to a neighbor. Hold the elevator for someone or take time to help a loved one. As you spread your kindness, you might just experience what research has conÂ“rmed: Generosity can be contagious. Why? The act of helping others actually activates the part of your brain that makes you feel pleasure. It also releases a hormone called oxytocin that helps modulate social interactions and emotion Â„ the higher your oxytocin levels, the more generous you may be. Food for thought: Reportedly, one person in Winnipeg, Manitoba, picked up the tab for the next car in line at a coffee-and-sandwich drive-through. This inspired the next person to do to the same. The chain continued for an astonishing 226 customers. Seems like research supports the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The kinder you act toward others, the better you will feel.FOCUS ON GRATITUDEDo you feel grateful for the good things in your life? If not, itÂs time to start. Researchers have found that feelings of thankfulness can help improve sleep, diminish fatigue, increase conÂ“dence and even lessen depression. One way to increase your feelings of gratitude is to start journaling. Keeping a gratitude journal Â„ just writing down things youÂre grateful for Â„ has been found to actually improve biological markers that indicate heart health. DonÂt want to carry a notebook? There are plenty of phone apps that can help you express gratitude or share happy moments. Like anything else, engaging in loving kindness gets easier with practice. Try thinking positive thoughts about people in your life. Write down the things youÂre grateful for this week. Set aside 10 minutes to meditate. You may just Â“nd a happier, healthier you. By NAJJA PARKERTHE ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTIONIf youÂre feeling stressed, spending some time in nature might help, according to a new report. Researchers from the University of Michigan recently conducted a study, published in Frontiers in Psychology, to determine the association between nature and stress hormone levels. For the assessment, they asked a group of adults to take Ânature pills,ÂŽ or to spend some time either sitting or walking in nature. They were required to spend 10 minutes or more in nature at least three times a week for an eight-month period. Once every two weeks, the scientists measured the participantsÂ levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, using saliva samples taken before and after a nature pill. ÂParticipants were free to choose the time of day, duration, and the place of their nature experience, which was defined as anywhere outside that in the opinion of the participant, made them feel like theyÂve interacted with nature,ÂŽ lead author MaryCarol Hunter explained in a statement. ÂThere were a few constraints to minimize factors known to influence stress: take the nature pill in daylight, no aerobic exercise, and avoid the use of social media, internet, phone calls, conversations and reading.ÂŽ In addition to accommodating the subjectsÂ busy lifestyles, the team also factored in the natural drop in cortisol levels that can occur naturally throughout the day. After analyzing the results, they found having a 20-minute nature experience reduced cortisol levels. In fact, those who spent 20 to 30 minutes sitting or walking outside had the greatest decrease of cortisol levels. ÂOur study shows that for the greatest payoff, in terms of efficiently lowering levels of the stress hormone cortisol, you should spend 20 to 30 minutes sitting or walking in a place that provides you with a sense of nature,ÂŽ Hunter said. The team said their findings provide the first estimates of how nature can impact our daily lives, and they hope health care providers take advantage of the evidence. ÂOur experimental approach can be used as a tool to assess how age, gender, seasonality, physical ability and culture influences the effectiveness of nature experiences on well-being,ÂŽ Hunter said. ÂThis will allow customized nature pill prescriptions, as well as a deeper insight on how to design cities and wellbeing programs for the public.ÂŽ Want to learn more about the study?

Here are a few tips to help keep your eyes safe and healthy. 1. Use sun protection. Your eyes need protection from the sunÂs harmful rays just like your skin does. Over-exposure to the sun can cause early cataracts, skin cancer around the eyelids, macular degeneration and premature wrinkles. Sunglasses that block 99 percent to 100 percent of UV-A and UV-B rays is very important. Wrap-around sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats add extra protection because they help block UV rays from entering the eyes from the sides and above. 2. Wear eye protection. There are an estimated 2.5 million eye injuries in the United States each year. Many of these injuries can be avoided with the use of proper eye protection. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved eyewear is recommended for home and recreational use. Accidents to the eye can occur around the home while gardening, doing repairs, or using harsh chemicals. Sports-related injuries are also common while Â“shing, golÂ“ng and playing baseball, to name a few. Wearing a cap, proper eye protection and being cognizant of your surroundings can be a safeguard to any potential injury. 3. Know your family history. Many diseases tend to run in families. Diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma are hereditary. By making your eye professional aware of your family medical history, you are providing a valuable tool for early detection and intervention. Being knowledgeable about your history is imperative as it can lead to a more favorable outcome. 4. Proper nutrition. A healthy diet with a variety of green leafy vegetables, fruits, lean protein and omega-3s is a wonderful way to prevent eye disease and maintain overall health. Avoid processed foods that are high in calories and fat. Consult your family doctor before taking any vitamin or mineral supplements. 5. DonÂt smoke. Smoking has been linked to an increased risk of early cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. The research is very clear: Smoking is bad for your eyesight, general health and the health of those around you. 6. See an eye professional. Annual eye exams are a good rule of thumb. Children are typically followed by their pediatrician and screened for vision problems at their annual exam. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends the following guidelines when one should see and eye doctor (ophthalmologist): Â€ Before the age of 5, toddlers should be screened for common childhood problems such as crossed eyes, lazy eye, nearsightedness and farsightedness. Â€ From age 20-29, at least once during this period. Â€ From age 30-39, at least twice during this period. Â€ Age 40, comprehensive eye exam, with future frequency determined by this exam. Â€ Age 65 and over, every one to two years. Individuals at higher risk for eye disease should be examined more often (African Americans over 40, history of high blood pressure, diabetes or family history of eye disease or injury). Zusman Eye Care Center is a state of the art facility providing a variety of services ranging from routine eye exams to medical and surgical treatment of eye disease. Dr. Zusman specializes in no stitch, no needle, no patch cataract surgery under topical anesthesia. He also performs laser surgery and eyelid surgery. Additional interests include glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration and the diagnosis and treatment of ocular trauma/injuries.

Orders for some people to avoid public places in Rockland County, New York. As an outbreak of measles surges across the United States Â„ with 704 cases this year and counting Â„ some local health ofÂ“cials are trying to deal with contagion in unvaccinated communities by turning to extraordinary police powers from the past. ÂUnfortunately, we are revisiting diseases from another generation,ÂŽ said Jason Schwartz, an assistant professor of health policy at the Yale School of Public Health. ÂAnd now we are revisiting public health responses from another generationÂŽ in instances where vaccination programs have fallen short, he said. Not long ago, measles was thought to be a problem that was mostly solved. The once-common disease became increasingly rare after a vaccine became available in the 1960s. In 2000, health ofÂ“cials declared the disease eliminated in the U.S., meaning that all new cases stemmed from infected travelers and not from homegrown transmission. A decade ago, the cases numbered fewer than 100 a year. But they have been jumping since then, with the worst happening right now. On Monday, U.S. health ofÂ“cials said the national tally already has eclipsed the total for any full year since 1994, when 963 cases were reported. Twenty-two states have reported cases, but the vast majority have been in New York Â„ mainly in New York City and in nearby Rockland County. Most of the New York cases have been unvaccinated people in Orthodox Jewish communities. Three-quarters of those who caught the extremely contagious disease are children or teenagers. No deaths have been reported this year, but 66 patients were hospitalized. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this yearÂs count includes 44 people who caught the disease while traveling in another country. Some of them triggered U.S. outbreaks, mostly among unvaccinated people. That includes the largest outbreaks in New York. Measles in most people causes fever, a runny nose, cough and a rash all over the body. A very small fraction of those infected can suffer complications such as pneumonia and a dangerous swelling of the brain. According to the CDC, for every 1,000 children who get measles, one or two will die from it. The return of measles may be an early warning sign of a resurgences of other vaccine-preventable diseases such as rubella, chickenpox and bacterial meningitis, some experts say. In recent decades, health ofÂ“cials have relied on doctors to prod families to vaccinate their children against measles and other diseases. That push has been bolstered by requirements in every state that children be vaccinated to attend public schools. But as vaccination rates have fallen in some communities and cases exploded, ofÂ“cials recently have taken more dramatic steps. In Rockland County, ofÂ“cials last month banned all unvaccinated children from indoor public places. In New York City this month, ofÂ“cials ordered mandatory vaccinations in four Brooklyn ZIP codes, threatening possible Â“nes of up to $1,000 for noncompliance. City ofÂ“cials said 57 unvaccinated people have received summonses. The city also has shut down seven religious schools that failed to exclude unvaccinated children, though Â“ve were later allowed to reopen after submitting a corrective plan. Last week in California, more than 1,000 students and staff at two Los Angeles universities were quarantined on campus or sent home after cases began to appear. It was a limited order, and half already are out of quarantine, ofÂ“cials said Monday. Dr. Umair Shah, the head of HoustonÂs county health department, said Âwe donÂt knowÂŽ if these kinds of measures will become more common. Health ofÂ“cials have had such measures available and have been prepared to use them in case of unusual and even exotic outbreaks Â„ like a new Â”u pandemic or Ebola Â„ Âbut here we are implementing them for measles,ÂŽ he said. ItÂs been more than 25 years since those kinds of measures were taken against measles, Schwartz said. The last similar instance occurred during a bad outbreak in Philadelphia in the early 1990s, when the city recorded more than 900 cases, most of them members of two fundamentalist church groups that did not accept vaccination or other kinds of modern medical care. The use of quarantines and other orders are driven in part by a growing concern that outbreaks of measles and other diseases could get worse, despite the availability of effective vaccines, some health experts said. ÂI think thereÂs a sense of anxiety and even a little panic in the public health communityÂŽ as ofÂ“cials see high levels of mistrust of government and science from a surprising number of people, said Lawrence Gostin, a Georgetown University public health law expert. That anxiety has led to what Gostin believes are missteps by ofÂ“cials. ItÂs one thing to isolate someone with measles or to quarantine someone who has been exposed, he said. Those people are infection risks, and short-term limitations of where they can go and who they can meet are legally and medically appropriate, Gostin said. But itÂs another thing to take the kind of step Rockland County initially did, in which unvaccinated kids were placed under house arrest Â„ not because they were infection risks, but because their parents werenÂt listening to public health ofÂ“cials, he said. ÂThatÂs overly punitive,ÂŽ he said. Indeed, a judge struck down the initial emergency order. One community had success without taking such measures. OfÂ“cials in Vancouver, Washington, declared an end Monday to a measles outbreak that began in January but apparently stopped at 71 cases a month ago. It was a much smaller community than New York City or Los Angeles and was tamed by an intense investigation and vaccination campaign that involved 230 health workers tracking down infected people and those they had contact with, at a cost of about $865,000. Meanwhile, there is a new wave of efforts in state legislatures to end philosophical and religious exemptions to vaccination requirements in schools. Ed Day, a Republican who is the top elected ofÂ“cial in Rockland County, on Monday joined Democratic state lawmakers to urge quick passage of a measure to eliminate religious exemptions for required vaccinations. ÂThis bill would be a godsend,ÂŽ Day said at a news conference in Albany. ÂTo wait is a recipe for medical disaster.ÂŽSurge in US measles cases leads to extraordinary measures SOURCE: Centers for Disease Control and PreventionRising number of US measles cases This year is shaping up as the worst in years for measles cases, according to federal health officials. *As of April 26 0 200 400 600 800 cases 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 63 55 220 667 120 86 704* 187 188 372 Â€Affordable Options and SavingsÂ€Worldwide Travel Protection Â€VeteranÂs BeneÂ“tsÂ€Avoid Hidden Society Fees Â€Complimentary Personal Planning GuideÂ€Customized Packages and Terms CONSIDERING PLANNING AHEAD?CREMATION/FUNERAL SERVICES?

Without a reasonable degree of Â” exibility, the body would perform its movements quite inefÂ“ ciently. It would also experience much soreness and injury. You should not underestimate the signiÂ“ cance of Â” exibility. Although Â” exibility training provides many beneÂ“ ts, a beneÂ“ t that is welcome by many people is the positive effect that this type of training offers those with lower back problems. To prevent or manage low-back pain, stretching (Â” exibility) exercises should be performed regularly. As you attempt to increase your Â” exibility, you should keep in mind that a purpose of Â” exibility training is to stretch the major muscle groups and joints of the body. In addition, when establishing your Â” exibility routine, make use of a system. You could, for instance, start at your head and work your way down to the feet. Using this or some other format will help you remember the exercises and prevent you from missing important parts of the body that should be exercised. As to the frequency of your Â” exibility training, try to exercise at least three days per week. If your exercises (Â” exibility routine) are simple and easy enough to perform, you could, very well, do them every day of the week. If your routine is strenuous, you should select one or two rest days when no exercises or non-strenuous ones only are done. Rest and relaxation periods may also be added throughout each session. Visualization (creating a mental image of something real or imagined) is an important element that may be used to enhance your Â” exibility improvement efforts. The idea is to see in your mindÂs eye the exercise you are performing. Viewing the exercise in such a manner will help you perform it correctly and facilitate some degree of relaxation, especially when the exercise is held for an extended period of time and deep, slow, rhythmic breathing are made use of. Some people Â“ nd that taking a warm bath or shower just before stretching, makes the body more responsive to the exercises. In addition, using relaxation and proper breathing techniques while stretching seem to increase the positive effects of most Â” exibility exercises. When performing Â” exibility exercises, you should avoid rapid, ÂbouncyÂŽ or jerky movements. The exercises should be done slowly and each should be held from 15 to 30 seconds. In addition, you should not conÂ“ ne your selection of Â” exibility exercises to those common and familiar ones. Seek exercises from other sources such as ballet, gymnastics, Fusion One, yoga, etc. The Fusion One program offers a wide range of simple, safe and effective Â” exibility exercises. Many of the seated ones may be done while at home or even at work. Using the Fusion One system, you are able to select and perform exercises from three levels ... a low (Â” oor) level, a middle (chair) level and a high (standing) level. Using this system of levels will permit you to select exercises that suit your capabilities. Ongoing Fusion One classes are offered at the Cultural Center. To join any of these classes, visit the Center at 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte, or call 941-625-4175, ext. 223.Flexibility training for everyone PHOTO PROVIDED Regina Veach, club member, assumes the seated back bend of Fusion One.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7C By MIKE STOBBE and EMILY SWANSONASSOCIATED PRESSAbout two-thirds of Americans believe drug companies are to blame for the opioid crisis, although nearly as many hold drug users themselves responsible, a new poll Â“nds. The Associated PressNORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll showed many people also fault doctors who prescribed opioid pain pills and government ofÂ“cials who havenÂt done enough to expand addiction treatment and arrest drug dealers. ÂAll of the above,ÂŽ said Anna Marie Davis, a casino security supervisor from Norwood, Pennsylvania. She said she has had to deal with overdoses at work and that her 27-year-old nephew, who used heroin and fentanyl, died of a drug overdose last year. ÂItÂs pretty bad,ÂŽ she said of the drug overdose problem. ÂI honestly donÂt think theyÂre doing enoughÂŽ to stop it, she added. The United States is in the midst of the deadliest drug overdose crisis in the nationÂs history. More than 70,000 people died from drug overdoses in 2017. Nearly 48,000 involved some type of opioid, a category that includes heroin, fentanyl and prescription opioid painkillers. Experts say the overdose epidemic is rooted in a boom in opioid painkiller prescriptions that began more than 20 years ago, which they say fostered addictions that later shifted into use of heroin and other drugs. The AP-NORC poll was conducted this month amid a legal storm: About 2,000 lawsuits have been Â“led in the past few years seeking to hold the drug industry responsible for the nationÂs drug overdose crisis. Some of the people participating in the poll said they were following the news and felt manufacturers should be held accountable. But many also expressed strong feelings that people taking drugs are to blame. Among them was Pamela Williams of New York City, who said she was addicted to cocaine and other drugs until she stopped about 25 years ago. ÂNobodyÂs forcing them to take drugs. Nobody puts it in their hand and puts a gun to the head and says; ÂHere, take this,ÂŽ said Williams, who lives in the Bronx. Dr. Daniel Ciccarone, a drug policy expert at the University of California at San Francisco, noted that the survey doesnÂt explain why people are turning to drugs and alcohol. He said people seem to be Âself-medicatingÂŽ as they struggle with depression, lack of money or other issues. Carmen Amato, a 52-year-old retired teacher from Frankfort, Kentucky, echoed that. ÂPeople canÂt make a living in some parts of our state and donÂt seem to have any other prospects besides use drugs,ÂŽ Amato said. ÂItÂs terrible.ÂŽ According to the poll, 63 percent of Americans think pharmaceutical companies are quite a bit or a great deal to blame for the problem of opioid addiction, while 58 percent say the same about people abusing opioids. Slightly less than half Â„ 46 percent Â„ think doctors and dentists are signiÂ“cantly to blame, and about a third Â„ 34 percent Â„ say that about the government. The poll shows 35 percent say they or someone close to them has been addicted to prescription painkillers or heroin. White Americans were more likely than black Americans to say theyÂve known someone who was addicted, 39 percent to 20 percent. Americans under 30 were more likely than older people to say theyÂve known someone who was addicted, 44 percent to 32 percent. People who have personally been close to someone addicted to opioids were more likely than others to blame pharmaceutical companies, 70 percent to 59 percent. They were also somewhat more likely to blame doctors and dentists (52 percent to 43 percent and the government (41 percent to 31 percent), but not significantly more or less likely to blame opioid users themselves. The poll also detected a partisan divide. Democrats are more likely than Republicans to blame pharmaceutical companies (72 percent to 53 percent and the government (42 percent to 26 percent). Republicans were more likely than Democrats to blame users (69 percent to 51 percent). WhoÂs to blame for opioid crisis? Many Americans point to drug manufacturers and drug usersBy AUBREY WHELANTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRERBonnie Milas knows exactly how quickly a dose of fentanyl can stop the breath. A cardiac anesthesiologist for decades at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, she works every day with the drug that, in its illicit form, has contaminated most of PhiladelphiaÂs heroin supply, and is now blamed for killing thousands. Many more are saved by quick administration of Narcan, the same reversal drug that Milas uses in her operating room for patients who donÂt wake up quickly enough from anesthesia. Her medical training is the reason she knew what to do the day she Â“rst found her son Robert overdosing in her home, and how she saved his life with an intravenous dose of Narcan she happened to have in her medical bag. It is also how she knew that nothing could be done on the January morning last year when she drove frantically to an apartment in Philadelphia, pushed past a police ofÂ“cer, and saw her son on the bathroom Â”oor. Robert was 27 and, even that early in 2018, already was the cityÂs 16th overdose victim of the year. A toxicology report would Â“nd only fentanyl in his system. Recently, her family suffered yet another devastating loss: Her older son, who had saved his younger brother from overdoses twice and was MilasÂs only surviving child, himself died of an accidental drug overdose. In the wake of unimaginable tragedy, Milas has committed herself to educating others on how to prevent overdoses. She has spoken up at university forums on the opioid crisis, advocating for supervised injection sites as a lifesaving measure in the crisis gripping the region. She wishes Robert could have visited a site, where medical personnel monitor users, reverse overdoses, and also help connect them with treatment. From her home in Yardley, sheÂs joined the Bucks County Overdose Prevention and Education initiative, hosting Narcan trainings and encouraging parents to develop the kind of overdose prevention plan she didnÂt have when she caught Robert, then in high school, hiding a syringe. Robert had been an intensely curious child, a brilliant math and physics student who struggled with other subjects and had been diagnosed with attention-deÂ“cit hyperactivity disorder. It was like him, Milas thought at the time, to have tried heroin just for the experience, and she believed him when he assured her he never would again. She would think later that it made a kind of horrible sense that Robert would choose a downer as his drug of choice: Something to calm his mind. ÂFor him to feel better about what it is that he was feeling,ÂŽ she said Â„ intense selfdoubt, sensitivity and inadequacy. ÂThey were expectations he was setting for himself,ÂŽ Milas said. ÂWe didnÂt care what he chose to do, as long as he put his heart and soul into it.ÂŽ At Â“rst, she found it almost unbelievable that her kind, funny son, who made her laugh harder than anyone else, could fall into addiction. But her physicianÂs training meant she eventually began to see signs she couldnÂt ignore. RobertÂs constricted pupils. How he would fall asleep upright. How he would become suddenly exuberant, bubbly, eager to please, after a dose of heroin pulled him out of withdrawalÂs painful symptoms. Even his speech was a tell: on the phone from college, Milas would listen to the timbre of his voice, the ragged edge of his breath, and know he had been using. She never shared what was happening with anyone outside the immediate family, even as Robert slipped into full-blown addiction, struggling in and out of rehabs, overdosing again and again. Milas, her husband, and her 90-year-old father-in-law each saved Robert from an overdose. Milas and her husband feared the stigma their son would face had his condition been more widely known. ÂWe were never ashamed of Robert,ÂŽ she said. But the couple sat through dinner parties where acquaintances blithely talked about how any parent whose child succumbed to addiction clearly had not spent enough time with their kids. ÂThis was 2009, 2010. There was no opioid crisis. There was no information out there whatsoever,ÂŽ Milas said. The family endured in silence. But since RobertÂs death, Milas has felt compelled to speak up. She wants to help the families of people in addiction to prepare to save their loved onesÂ lives, to have a plan to deal with overdoses. Dinner party guests might think suburban kids are safer. But Milas knows ambulances can take longer to arrive in the suburbs, and so itÂs even more critical that families know what to do. ÂWeÂre extremely grateful to her,ÂŽ said Diane W. Rosati, the executive director of the Bucks County Drug and Alcohol Commission, where Milas developed her Narcan training program, working with a local paramedic. ÂAs a representative of government, we canÂt have every base covered Â„ community members have a willingness to step in and help, and this is a tremendous example of that.ÂŽ Milas encourages families not only to carry Narcan Â„ in a nasal spray formulation Â„ but also to learn rescue breathing, chest compressions, and CPR to help loved ones breathe until paramedics arrive. Opioids kill by suppressing respiration, she explains. Above all, Milas is making it okay for worried families to talk about what to do if the thing they fear most happens. ÂItÂs a terrifying situation for family members, standing there, not knowing what to do,ÂŽ she said. ÂIÂm trying to get loved ones, neighbors, whoever, to take another step forward.ÂŽ Every day, in the operating room, Milas administers the drug that killed her youngest son. In her hands, it is a lifesaver that makes surgery safe and eases the worst pain of illness and injury. Milas keeps a CPR dummy in her ofÂ“ce and demonstrates rescue breathing techniques with clinical precision, even in the grip of an unthinkable grief now visited on her twice. She keeps doses of Narcan spray on hand, too Â„ because, she says, you never know when you might need it. A short time after RobertÂs death, Milas was driving in Bucks County and saw a police ofÂ“cer performing CPR on a young man lying on the ground next to his car. There were no paramedics on the scene yet, and she stopped to ask if the ofÂ“cers needed help. On the side of the road, she ended up reversing an overdose. It wasnÂt just because of Robert that she felt compelled to pull over: She is a physician. Her job is to rescue people. But her son is why she will always carry Narcan, and why she hopes everyone will. ÂGet trained. Get the skill set. You wonÂt have any regret,ÂŽ she said. ÂAnd you wonÂt feel that, I should have done something, and I didnÂt.ÂŽFentanyl killed a physicianÂs son. Now she works to save other families from the same pain TNS PHOTODr. Bonnie Milas looks up at a photo of her son, Robert, who died of an overdose, in her oce at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on April 18. Milas, an anesthesiologist at Pennsylvania, has since become an advocate for overdose prevention.

The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has beneÂ“ ts for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome. Physicians and other health professionals will periodically speak to the group on cancer related topics.

Page 10C E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 By PAUL SISSONTHE SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNEShe Â“rst noticed the odd rash in February and Â“gured it probably had something to do with her clothing. But buying a new bra had no effect. A mammogram showed no internal warning signs, so Elaine Deboe of Jamul just lived with it, carrying on with her busy life working for Caltrans and enjoying time with her large extended family. ÂI didnÂt think too much of it at the time,ÂŽ Deboe said. By the fall, the rash had spread, taking on a bumpy, orange-peel texture. Her primary doctor referred her to a dermatologist who made a quick diagnosis: inÂ”ammatory breast cancer. Suddenly, what seemed like an annoyance was a major threat, one that has forced her to undergo chemotherapy and that has the 56-year-old scheduled for a double mastectomy. ÂThe toughest part has been not knowing what my outcome is going to be,ÂŽ Deboe said, reclining in a bed at a Scripps Health infusion center in Torrey Pines last week. She is among few who end up with this particularly insidious form of breast cancer that presents not as a lump embedded deeply in tissue but as an anomaly on the surface. ÂInÂ”ammatory breast cancer presents more with a reddening of the skin of the breast, a swelling of the skin of the breast, kind of a heaviness, sometimes a tenderness of the breast,ÂŽ said Dr. Thomas Buchholz, medical director of Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center. According to the National Cancer Institute, inÂ”ammatory breast cancer makes up somewhere between 1% and 5% of all invasive breast cancer cases. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 268,600 such cases diagnosed in 2019, meaning that the disease will affect between 3,000 and 13,500 American women this year. In 2006, Buchholz, a radiation oncologist, was part of a team at M.D. Anderson in Houston that founded the worldÂs Â“rst inÂ”ammatory breast cancer center dedicated to studying why the relatively rare condition surfaces in some women but not others. More than a decade later, Scripps, in an ongoing collaboration with Anderson, is starting its own center with a goal of sharing data and continuing research efforts. Already, the physician said, Anderson has started sending patients from outside the immediate area. ÂWeÂve seen patients coming down from Los Angeles; weÂve had patients coming down from Sacramento. WeÂve had patients who are receiving components of their care in Houston who live more on the West Coast and come to receive part of their care here in San Diego,ÂŽ Buchholz said. UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center also handles inÂ”ammatory cases Âa few times a monthÂŽ at its breast health center. InÂ”ammatory breast cancer is considered particularly aggressive, blocking the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast and causing the characteristic swelling and redness. Progression can occur in weeks or months, meaning that the window to seek treatment can be particularly small, especially as the conditionÂs rarity means that primary care doctors often think theyÂre dealing with a bacterial infection and prescribe antibiotics when women Â“rst show up with swelling or a rash. Given the speed, Buchholz said, treatment will often be more aggressive up front. After chemotherapy halts the spread, aggressive radiation treatments follow. ÂWe shorten the treatment schedule and give a little bit more intensive radiation due to the rapid proliferation that is common in these cases,ÂŽ Buchholz said, adding that, as a group, IBC patients tend to be younger than average. Research efforts have compared the genetics of inÂ”ammatory breast cancer tumors to other types of breast cancer and found that not much is different. Tumors often have the same genetic characteristics as those that form tumors, grow more slowly and have various sensitivities to certain types of hormone-based therapy. Why, then, do some cases become inÂ”ammatory? The current thinking, Buchholz said, is that there is something present in the Âmicro environmentÂŽ of some women, in the basic chemistry of their bodies, that triggers inÂ”ammation. ÂWhy certain women have a microenvironment that predisposes tumor cells to become more like inÂ”ammatory breast cancer rather than regular breast cancer is still unknown,ÂŽ Buchholz said. But Scripps, in its collaboration with M.D. Anderson, is doing what it can to help build up the store of information that is necessary to answer that question. Getting as much information from each patient, he said, is a critical step in determining commonalities among inÂ”ammatory breast cancer patients. ÂWe take careful histories about pregnancies and breast feeding and different types of exposures Âƒ we are looking for unique patterns within the IBC population so that we can begin to identify those factors that may have some bearing on who is affected and who isnÂt,ÂŽ Buchholz said. In the meantime Deboe said she prefers not to know her current cancer stage as she prepares for surgery. She has a simple message for women: ÂIf it looks like an orange peel or a lemon peel, write it up. DonÂt wait.ÂŽRare form of breast cancer getting increased attention TNS PHOTOElaine Deboe receives chemotherapy for a rare form of breast cancer, accompanied by her father, Roy Phillips, at Scripps Clinic Anderson Outpatient Pavilion in San Diego. adno=3663338-1
The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 1DBy ALLY MAROTTICHICAGO TRIBUNECHICAGO Â„ With graduations fast approaching, a new crop of technology job candidates is preparing to enter the market. Their prospects look good. Tech-related employment grew in the Chicago area by almost 6,000 jobs last year. And if employment postings are any indication, there is also optimism around future growth. Job postings related to emerging technologies, like 5G and artificial intelligence, increased 73 percent, according to data from Downers Grove-based trade association CompTIA. The top three tech occupations in the Chicago area in 2018 were software and web developer; computer system and cybersecurity analyst; and network architect, administrator and support specialist. Companies in nearly every industry are expanding their tech teams, focusing on cybersecurity and eyeing new capabilities, meaning the role those workers play can vary greatly. The median wage for all Chicago-area tech occupations was more than $82,000 in 2018, according to the data. ThatÂs 80 percent higher than the median wage for all occupations in the state. The Tribune asked an employee in each of the top three tech occupations to talk about their jobs, what excites them about their work, and the professional paths theyÂve taken. Their responses have been edited for length and clarity.No. 1: Software and web developerSumedha Gupta, 27, of the West Loop Title: Entry-level software engineer at Vivid Seats, a Chicago-based online ticket marketplace Start date: July 2018 Pay range: Declined to disclose. The median salary range for Chicago-area web and software developers in 2018 was $72,000 to $109,000, according to data from CompTIA. Education: Illinois Institute of Technology, masterÂs in computer science. Kurukshetra University, India, bachelorÂs in computer science. Hometown: Delhi, India I work on the Android side of the mobile team. We decide what features to incorporate into the app. Every morning we have a stand-up meeting where everyone can talk about what theyÂre working on. Recently, we incorporated a refer program into the app (that gives users a discount if they refer a friend). ThatÂs an app-speciÂ“c feature, so thatÂs really exciting for us. We are redesigning the app, all of the screens. ThatÂs really exciting to see new colors coming into the app and the whole design. We have a user interface team that works on designs. We can give feedback to them. I really love the concept of developing apps. IÂve been to various hackathons and developed my own (apps). Here, youÂre working on an app thatÂs available to 1 million users. They have a huge user base. ThatÂs what I like the most. ItÂs like an eight-hour job. We donÂt have exact time to come in. If youÂre doing your work right, youÂre moving tasks along, thereÂs nobody hanging over your shoulder. ItÂs very transparent what youÂre working on. I moved to the U.S. in 2016 for my masterÂs. I worked in India for almost 3 years. The job I was doing was not exactly development, it was maintenance of an application. There were a lot of new technologies coming Â„ machine learning, artiÂ“cial intelligence. There were not many good courses in India at that time, so that (encouraged) me to go pursue a degree where they provide coaching on machine learning and AI. When I came to Vivid Seats, I knew only Java. Most of our Android application base is moving to another programming language I didnÂt have any experience in, so I learned that. ItÂs been a great learning curve for me. IÂve learned a lot of things since I came here. I got to know about Vivid Seats through a coding meetup. This is the Â“rst formal experience I have in building Android applications, thatÂs why I joined as an entry-level programmer for Android. If I keep learning, I hope IÂll move on to the next level.THE HUNT FOR TECH JOBS Workers in cybersecurity, software developing and IT tell how they got started TNS PHOTOVivid Seats software engineer Sumedha Gupta works on the Android app for the company in downtown Chicago.TECH | 10D Mission Driven...

Page 10D E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019MARKETPLACE/JOBS No. 2: Computer system and cybersecurity analystsCalvin Gruhlke, age 27, of Hoffman Estates Title: Security analyst at Walgreens, based in DeerÂ“eld Start date: October 2017 Pay range: $90,000 to $110,000 Education: DePaul University, bachelorÂs in information assurance and security engineering Hometown: Arlington Heights At Walgreens, we have a bunch of smaller teams that all work under our security department. The speciÂ“c team IÂm on is called the instant response team. My role is kind of being the Â“rst responder whenever there is any type of security incident. A lot of times, thatÂs going to be something thatÂs related to malware or viruses. The other one would be account takeovers, like compromised accounts. Almost all of my time is spent monitoring for when those instances are going to happen. ItÂs really just about looking through all the different data sources that we have and trying to pinpoint when something looks suspicious. (We monitor) anything that is a Walgreens business account, so like an email account. That also includes customer accounts on the Walgreens.com website. ThereÂs a huge focus on security when it comes to retailers wanting to protect consumer data and customer payment data. My high school had a computer repair class and a networking class, both skills that help build up knowledge to going into cybersecurity. After I took those classes, I decided to go into security. I started out (after college) doing help desk, then I started doing some security work. The Department of Veterans Affairs was my Â“rst security-only job. After that was Walgreens. (A recruiter I worked with previously helped me Â“nd this job.) I work out of the DeerÂ“eld ofÂ“ce. Typically itÂs 9 to 5, except we are a 24/7 team so there is stuff that happens after hours. I get to work from home three days a week, which I think makes it attractive. I like my job a lot. IÂm free to research on my own and Â“nd malware proactively. IÂm free to investigate on my own and monitor the network in whatever way I think is going to be effective.No. 3: Network architects, administrators and support specialistsDamian Zavala, age 30, of Portage Park Title: IT systems administrator at Jellyvision, a Chicago-based software company Start date: October 2018 Pay range: $60,000 to $80,000 Education: Currently pursuing a bachelorÂs in system and cloud administration online with Western Governors University.

(Abel Uribe/Chicago Tribune) IÂm responsible for all the systems working from day to day. If we have internet problems, it falls under my responsibility to team up with the rest of the IT team and help desk to troubleshoot why itÂs breaking down. Then we Â“x it. I make sure all the servers are online, make sure everythingÂs backing up the way it should be backing up, making sure things are communicating correctly. If something crashes or goes ofÂ”ine, we get an alarm sent to us, a phone call or an SMS (text) message or email. ThatÂs when we look at it and say, ÂOK, letÂs bring it back up.ÂŽ We also make sure all our servers and computers stay up to date. Every day thereÂs new updates. I have got to Â“gure out a good schedule to automate to push the updates when they (the employees) are not at work. There are times when I have to work off hours and itÂs just based off the problem. Those are times when we work remotely, or we come in and work at night. The biggest situation that I can remember is when it got really, really cold in January. Myself and the help desk manager, we came into work. Everyone else was at home. We just had to make sure everything that was running stayed running. You have to make sure our systems were able to support all the people working remotely that day. IÂve been working IT or in the technical Â“eld since Â05. Back when I was in high school, I had a class that shows you how a computer works and the operating system and how to troubleshoot basic things. I felt like, ÂYou know what, this is something I could do.ÂŽ Later that year I applied to become a Geek Squad agent. I got that job and I did that for nine years. I was still in high school. That taught me a lot. Once I completed that, I got an opportunity to work at Apple (at an in-store Genius Bar). At Apple I built great relationships with my managers. My manager moved over to Jellyvision, so thatÂs where I Â“rst heard of Jellyvision. Later, he reached out about (coming to work here). I took some college courses at the City Colleges (of Chicago) but I never Â“nished. This year, I signed back up to online courses. WhatÂs helped me a lot is that I have so much experience. I want to make sure I have job security by getting that college degree.TECHFROM PAGE 1D Damian Zavala, center, an IT systems administrator, helps Lindsay Brown with her email at Jellyvision in Chicago.

Your job may be killing you. A new report from the United Nations says stress from work, excessive hours and occupational diseases, which are chronic ailments resulting from work, are responsible for nearly 2.8 million deaths worldwide every year. The way we work today may be the culprit. Increased digital connectivity, for example, has made work days longer as employees are expected to remain on the clock long after they leave the building. Here in Silicon Valley, thatÂs standard operating procedure for many. ÂThe world of work has changed, weÂre working differently, weÂre working longer hours, weÂre using more technology,ÂŽ Manal Azzi of the UNÂs labor agency, the International Labor Organization, told CBS. According to the report, 36.1 percent of the worldÂs workforce now works Âexcessive hours,ÂŽ which was deÂ“ned as working more than 48 hours per week. Women may be most at risk because they tend to work a second shift as the primary caregivers for families, resulting in little time to rest or exercise. ÂNot only do you work when youÂre at your ofÂ“ce but then youÂre working at home as well,ÂŽ said Azzi, as CBS noted, Âso itÂs a lot of sedentary work and that affects cardiovascular diseases as well.ÂŽ About two-thirds of work-related mortality is estimated to occur in Asia, the report says.

PyongyangÂs ofÂ“ cial Korean Central News Agency said Kim expressed Âgreat satisfactionÂŽ over SaturdayÂs drills and stressed that his front-line troops should keep a Âhigh alert postureÂŽ and enhance combat ability to Âdefend the political sovereignty and economic self-sustenance of the country.ÂŽ The weapons launches were a likely sign of PyongyangÂs growing frustration at stalled diplomatic talks with Washington meant to provide coveted sanctions relief in return for nuclear disarmament. They also highlighted the fragility of the detente between the Koreas, which in a military agreement reached last September vowed to completely cease Âall hostile actsÂŽ against each other in land, air and sea. ÂPraising the PeopleÂs Army for its excellent operation of modern large-caliber longrange multiple rocket launchers and tactical guided weapons, he said that all the service members are master gunners and they are capable of carrying out duty to promptly tackle any situation,ÂŽ the KNCA paraphrased Kim as saying.

By JOSH REPLOGLE and MIKE SCHNEIDERASSOCIATED PRESSJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Â„ A military-chartered jet carrying 143 people landed hard, then bounced and swerved as the pilot struggled to control it amid thunder and lightning, ultimately skidding off the runway and coming to a crashing halt in a river at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. It meant chaos and terror for passengers in the Boeing 737 as the plane jolted back and forth and oxygen masks deployed, then overhead bins opened, sending contents spilling out. But authorities said all the people onboard emerged without critical injuries Friday night, lining up on the wings as they waited to be rescued. Only a 3-month-old baby was hospitalized, and that was done out of an abundance of caution, ofÂ“ cials said. ÂI think it is a miracle,ÂŽ said Capt. Michael Connor, the baseÂs commanding ofÂ“ cer, hours after the plane landed. ÂWe could be talking about a different story this evening.ÂŽ The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team of investigators Saturday to the crash site in the St. Johns River in north Florida, where the aircraft was still partially submerged in shallow water and its nose cone was sliced off, apparently from the impact. Two pet cats and a dog were still on the plane as well, and their status wasnÂt immediately clear. Rescuers looked in the cargo area after the plane ended up in the river but saw no crates and heard no animal noises. When they returned later, they didnÂt see any pet carriers above water, Connor said.

By FARES AKRAMASSOCIATED PRESSGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Â„ Palestinian militants on Saturday Â“ red over 200 rockets into Israel, drawing dozens of retaliatory airstrikes on targets across the Gaza Strip in a round of intense Â“ ghting that broke a month-long lull between the bitter enemies. Four Palestinians, including a pregnant mother and her baby daughter, were killed, while three Israelis, including an 80-year-old woman, were wounded by rocket Â“ re. The Â“ ghting came as leaders from Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, and the smaller armed faction Islamic Jihad, were in Cairo for talks with Egyptian mediators aimed at preventing a fraying cease-Â“ re from collapsing altogether. It also comes at a sensitive time for Israel, which is to mark its Memorial Day and Independence Day holiday this week, before hosting the Eurovision song contest in the middle of the month. Prolonged Â“ ghting could overshadow the Eurovision and potentially deter international travelers from coming in for the festive event. Israel and Hamas, an Islamic group that opposes IsraelÂs existence, have fought three wars and dozens of smaller Â” are-ups of violence since Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007. They engaged in several days of heavy Â“ ghting in March before Egypt brokered a truce in which Israel agreed to ease a crippling blockade on Gaza in exchange for a halt in rocket Â“ re. In recent days, Hamas accused Israel of reneging on its pledges as militants began to Â“ re rockets into Israel.

STERLING, Va. (AP) Â„ President Donald Trump criticized social media companies after Facebook banned a number of extremist Â“ gures, declaring that he was Âmonitoring and watching, closely!!ÂŽ Trump, who tweeted and re-tweeted complaints Friday and Saturday, said he would Âmonitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms.ÂŽ He has previously asserted that social media companies exhibit bias against conservatives, something the companies have rejected as untrue. The presidentÂs comments came after Facebook this week banned Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and other extremists, saying they violated its ban on Âdangerous individuals.ÂŽ The company also removed right-wing personalities Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, along with JonesÂ site, Infowars, which often posts conspiracy theories. The latest bans apply both to FacebookÂs main service and to Instagram and extend to fan pages and other related accounts. FacebookÂs move signaled renewed effort by the social media giant to remove people and groups promoting objectionable material such as hate, racism and anti-Semitism. The company said it has Âalways bannedÂŽ people or groups that proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence, regardless of political ideology. On Twitter, Trump cited a number of individuals he said were being unfairly treated by social media companies, including Watson and actor James Woods. He insisted it was Âgetting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!ÂŽ Woods, one of HollywoodÂs most outspoken conservatives, has had his Twitter account locked.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019Woman left alone in jail cell while giving birthFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Â„ A pregnant Florida woman was left alone in a jail cell for nearly seven hours after asking for help and eventually gave birth alone, her attorney said Friday. Public defender Howard Finkelstein demanded an immediate review of medical and isolation practices in a letter to Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony. Finkelstein said his 34-year-old client complained of contractions and bleeding in the early morning hours of April 10. Jail staff attempted to contact an on-call doctor rather than take the woman to a hospital, the letter said. The doctor advised that he would check on the inmate when he arrived at the jail. The attorney wrote that the Broward SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce was aware of the womanÂs pregnancy since her March arrest on drug charges. He said medical records indicate the baby was not premature or unexpected. A sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce report said a guard entered the cell after seeing the inmate with her newborn but didnÂt mention the earlier requests for help. A nurse and doctor entered the cell to check on the mother and child, the report said. They were eventually sent to a nearby hospital. No injuries were reported The sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce released a statement saying an internal affairs investigation was launched two days after the birth. Child Protective Investigations Section was notiÂ“ed, and the baby was placed with an appropriate caregiver, ofÂ“cials said.Man beat 3-year-old girl with brickMIAMI GARDENS (AP) Â„ Police say an 18-year-old Florida man beat a 3-year-old girl with a brick inside a community recycling bin, leaving her critically injured. Miami Gardens police charged Tristan Tavares Bernard with attempted second-degree murder and other felonies Friday in connection with the Thursday night attack. Police say BernardÂs mother was babysitting the girl. Neighbors told reporters they went outside after hearing screams and saw the girl in the bin as Bernard smashed her head with the brick. They said he ran off when they approached. The girl was taken to a Miami hospital for surgery and was in critical condition. Police say Bernard told detectives he hit the girl because she left the house and wouldnÂt listen to him.Grandparents get custody of boy as parents fight treatmentTAMPA (AP) Â„ A judge ruled that a 3-year-old Florida boy will be turned over to his maternal grandparents while his parents are involved in a legal battle over his cancer treatment. Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland-Ball want to treat Noah McAdams with natural remedies. When they failed to show up for his scheduled chemotherapy treatment, Florida authorities issued an endangered child alert. The family was tracked down in Kentucky and the boy was returned to Tampa. Judge Lisa Campbell said Thursday that Noah will not resume treatment yet. She must still decide whether the parents are within their legal rights to decline chemotherapy. Noah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia April 4. The Tampa Bay Times reports McAdams testiÂ“ed Noah is being treated with CBD oil, fresh foods, and alkaline water. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE By STEPHEN WICARYBLOOMBERG NEWSOTTAWA, Ontario Â„ Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reached out to Cuba to help resolve the crisis in Venezuela, calling for free elections as President Nicolas Maduro holds tight against a U.S. campaign to replace him. With President Donald TrumpÂs administration leaving the option of military force on the table, Trudeau joined a group of 14 Latin American countries in turning to VenezuelaÂs closest ally to try to move forward from a standoff thatÂs also drawing in Russia. Trudeau Âunderscored the desire to see free and fair elections and the constitution upheld in VenezuelaÂŽ in a call with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel late Friday, according to a Canadian statement. They discussed Âways they could work together to support a peaceful resolution to the crisis.ÂŽ Tension is running high after a failed attempt this week to overthrow Maduro. The so-called Lima Group, meeting Friday in PeruÂs capital, decided to enlist Cuba in brokering a solution to turmoil that has pitted Maduro against Juan Guaido, whom more than 50 countries recognize as VenezuelaÂs interim president. Russia, a key ally of Venezuela, is signaling deepening concern. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov plans to meet his Venezuelan counterpart in Moscow on Sunday, a day before planned talks with U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo in Europe. Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton were briefed on Friday Âon a wide range of military optionsÂŽ for Venezuela, according to the Pentagon. The U.S. blames Cuba for propping up Maduro, whose re-election in a rigged presidential ballot last year prompted a backlash in and outside Venezuela. Cuban agents are alleged to run MaduroÂs security apparatus.With Venezuela standoff, Trudeau reaches out to Cuba By CARA ANNAASSOCIATED PRESSJOHANNESBURG Â„ More than 1,000 deaths have now been conÂ“rmed in eastern CongoÂs Ebola outbreak, the second-worst in history behind the West African one in 2014-16 that killed more than 11,300 people. Attacks on health workers are badly complicating efforts to contain one of the worldÂs most notorious diseases. At least 85 have been wounded or killed since January. HereÂs a look at why the outbreak is especially challenging, even as a promising experimental vaccine is being used widely for the Â“rst time. Nervous health experts watch as the virus spreads in a dense, highly mobile population near the border with Uganda and Rwanda. ÂAn under-resourced operation creates a very real risk of an international spread of Ebola,ÂŽ Nicole Fassina with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said Saturday. WHAT IS EBOLA?Ebola is a virus that can spread quickly and can be fatal in up to 90% of cases. Symptoms include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain and at times internal and external bleeding and can start to occur between two and 21 days from infection, according to WHO. At least 1,529 conÂ“rmed and probable Ebola cases have been reported in this outbreak declared in August, with 1,008 deaths. The virus is most often spread by close contact with bodily Â”uids of people exhibiting symptoms and with objects such as sheets that have been contaminated. Health care workers are often at risk, and burial practices that call for close contact with victims can spread the disease. While there is no licensed treatment for Ebola, early care such as rehydration and treatment of other symptoms helps to improve survival chances. Experimental treatments have been given to some patients in this outbreak but their effect is yet to be fully studied. An experimental Ebola vaccine has been effective, and WHO says a second one might be introduced. CongoÂs health ministry says more than 110,000 people have been vaccinated, but some including health workers have refused it.WHY IS THIS OUTBREAK UNIQUE?Health workers call this the Â“rst Ebola outbreak to occur in what is essentially a war zone. Dozens of rebel groups are active in CongoÂs northeast, killing hundreds of people in recent years. Attacks have led to a traumatized population that can be wary of outsiders. Some residents question why so much attention and money is spent on Ebola, a disease not seen in this part of Congo until now, instead of other deadly diseases such as malaria. Amid rumors and misunderstandings, health workers struggle to explain the importance of safe burials and other preventative measures. One out of four people interviewed in eastern Congo a month after the outbreak began wrongly believed Ebola wasnÂt real. Some people have Â”ed, or attacked health workers. An epidemiologist with WHO was shot dead last month and some doctors threatened to go on strike indeÂ“nitely if health workers are attacked again. The attacks have led to spikes in cases and hurt the painstaking work of tracing contacts of infected people. More than 12,000 people are tracked per day, WHO says. And yet many new cases are unconnected with known ones and many people are dying at home.HOW LONG WILL OUTBREAK LAST?ItÂs hard to say. Some health experts once predicted that the outbreak would end within six monthsÂ time. As complications keep appearing, the time frame is pushed back. The chair of WHOÂs expert committee that unanimously decided last month Â„ for a second time Â„ that the outbreak is not yet a global emergency has said experts were Âmoderately optimisticÂŽ the outbreak could be contained within a Âforeseeable time.ÂŽWhy this Ebola outbreak is a challenge AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 2018 Â“le photo, a health worker checks the temperature of people disembarking from a plane at the airport in Kinshasa, Congo. The Ebola outbreak is already the second deadliest outbreak in history, and eorts to control it have been complicated by a volatile security situation and deep community mistrust. By LANGSTON TAYLORTAMPA BAY TIMESAmid dozens of bills passed in the last few days of the legislative session, some inevitably steal the spotlight. Partisan, emotional measures like the bills to allow arming teachers and a ban on so-called Âsanctuary citiesÂŽ draw media attention and inspire protests. But FloridaÂs most powerful industries spent most of their time on other bills. Corporations, industry groups and cities paid lobbyists this year in droves to Â“ght or push wonky and far-reaching legislation Â„ especially if it has to do with health care or local government. The lobbying Â“rms with the most clients this session were Capital City Consulting, GrayRobinson PA and Smith Bryan & Myers Inc. The following bills had the highest total numbers of lobbyists and clients in 2019, according to the Florida HouseÂs lobbyist disclosure records. 1. The budget Last week, lawmakers agreed to consider a $91.1 billion budget they must approve so that they can send it to Gov. Ron DeSantis. More than 500 clients had lobbyists register to petition lawmakers on the budget, including about 20 county governments and dozens of cities. Professional associations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Florida Psychiatric Society, and Florida Bar were especially well-represented. Lobbyists also spoke on behalf of corporations as large as Microsoft, Delta Air Lines, RAI and Disney. One group of stakeholders who may be happier than last year: local school boards. Lawmakers approved an additional $75 per student in the costs that pay for keeping schools open Â„ salaries, electricity, insurance. ThatÂs a win compared to 2018Âs increase of just 47 cents. FloridaÂs biggest Â“rms on the bill were Ballard Partners (which lobbied on behalf of 191 clients), Capital City Consulting (136) and GrayRobinson PA (56). 2. Banning local regulations on business House Bill 3 Â„ sponsored by Rep. Mike Grant (R-Port Charlotte) Â„ would prevent local governments from creating their own standards and procedures for occupational and professional licensing, keeping that process at the state level. Democrats have criticized the effort as against home rule, according to the News Service of Florida. Fittingly, cities and counties are weighing in. Nineteen lobbyists have registered on the bill on behalf of the Florida League of Cities. Eight represented the Florida Association of Counties. Orlando, Key West, St. Cloud and Clearwater each had at least Â“ve lobbyists on the bill. The bill passed the House but has stalled in the Senate. On Friday, it was indeÂ“nitely postponed and withdrawn from consideration. 3. Letting insurance companies use the appraisal process House Bill 301 (with its companion, Senate Bill 714) would originally allow insurance companies to invoke the appraisal process after a homeowner Â“les a notice of intent to sue, potentially delaying repairs. Trial lawyers said it encourages insurance companies to underpay. Amendments to the bill have softened its beneÂ“t to insurers. The Florida Justice Association, which represents trial lawyers, had 11 lobbyists on the bill. Other involved groups included insurance companies State Farm, Progressive, Nationwide and MetLife. 4. Banning texting while driving Texting while driving was already illegal, but police could not pull over drivers unless they committed another violation. With the passage of House Bill 107 and Senate Bill 76, typing on a phone while behind the wheel of a moving car will become a primary offense. FloridaÂs police union heavily lobbied the bill and celebrated its passing. Lobbyists on the bill also represented the American Academy of Pediatrics, local governments and the cell phone provider AT&T. 5. Allowing imported drugs from Canada One of several health care deregulation efforts by House Speaker Jos Oliva, House Bill 19 allows state entities to import prescription drugs from Canada. But the state will have to wait on approval from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the plan to take effect. Proponents see the change as a freer market for medicine, and Canada restricts how much drug manufacturers can charge, unlike the U.S. The company with the largest lobbying presence has been American pharmaceutical manufacturer Bristol-Myers Squibb; eight lobbyists from the Â“rm Metz Husband & Daughton registered on the bill. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies BioFlorida, Genentech, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Gilead, PÂ“zer Novo Nordisk and Allergan weighed in as well. 6. Pushing telehealth Another health care initiative from House Republicans that awaits a signature from the governor, House Bill 23 would provide incentives for using telehealth (in which patients are treated through the internet, for example). A bevy of health care providers have multiple lobbyists on the bill: the Florida Health Care Association (17), Florida Hospital Association (12), Florida Medical Association (9) and Florida Chiropractic Association (8) lead the way. 7. Letting hospitals build or move without state approval This measure passed and, if signed into law, will repeal the ÂcertiÂ“cate of needÂŽ requirement hospitals must meet if they want to build new facilities or open new programs. Again, health care providers brought the largest lobbying presence, headed by the Florida Health Care Association, Florida Hospital Association, Florida Medical Association and Baptist Health Care Corporation. 8. Allowing electric scooters on roads Outside of some recent pilot programs, electric scooters have been slow to come to Florida. ThatÂs because many local governments in the state interpreted the law as banning electric scooter companies like Lime and Bird unless a local ordinance allows them. House Bill 453 would legalize them statewide and clarify they may be ridden on bike paths and sidewalks Â„ anywhere someone can ride a bike, theyÂll be able to ride a scooter. St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman said in March he was concerned by that rule, and some local government advocates worried that cities couldnÂt set their own regulations on the industry. The bill also stipulates a rider can park their scooter on a sidewalk as long as it doesnÂt impede pedestrian trafÂ“c. Several major electric scooter rental companies have taken notice: Bird Rides, Bolt, Lime, Lyft, Skip, Spin and Uber all lobbied the bill. So did 16 individual cities and the Florida League of Cities. 9. Allowing autonomous vehicles without a human operator Another bill friendly to rideshare companies, House Bill 311 would pave the way for Lyft or Uber to deploy autonomous vehicles. The bill, awaiting the governorÂs signature, allows self-driving vehicles on FloridaÂs roads, even without a human operator in the driverÂs seat. According to Watchdog.org, the billÂs supporters at a hearing included representatives from Uber, Lyft, General Motors and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. All of those organizations lobbied on the bill, as did the Florida Chamber of Commerce and GoogleÂs self-driving vehicle tech company Waymo.These were the most-lobbied bills in the Fla.

How could IllinoisÂ deÂ“cit become so large? I also want to buy 100 shares of Apple. What do you think? Â„ B.V., Port Richey, Fla. Dear B.V.: Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet traipsed the Mississippi and Illinois rivers in 1673, and Illinois became part of the French empire, though 100 years later, in 1763, possession passed to the Brits after the French and Indian War. Thanks to Jacques and Louis, thereÂre 12.8 million people living in LincolnÂs land with a $3.1 billion budget deÂ“cit, a $200 billion pension liability and a credit rating that makes VenezuelaÂs Â“nances look robust. Now, IllinoisÂ legislators want to raise taxes for the umpteenth time. MoodyÂs, S&P and Fitch rate Illinois debt a notch above junk, though knowledgeable observers are quick to say Âbull.ÂŽ The rating services colluded with the banks and legislators to eschew a junk rating; banks are not allowed to carry junk-rated munis on their books and could be forced to sell them. IllinoisÂ problems are three-fold: an infamously crooked legislature, infamously crooked unions and an expansively ignorant electorate. Of the last 10 Illinois governors, four have spent years living in the federal hotel. TheyÂve been convicted of fraud, racketeering, perjury, corruption, etc. And many of IllinoisÂ 177 legislators are of similar persuasion. TheyÂre so crooked they drink coffee with corkscrews. There are few non-millionaires among those 177 legislators, whoÂve for decades raped voters for personal gain. Those scumbags get full beneÂ“ts from the stateÂs pension fund while most working stiffs will take haircuts. And there are over 20,000 government employees who have unusual relationships with their legislators and pull over $100,000 in annual pension beneÂ“ts. Illinois unions are as guilty. Over the years the intransigent unions have bullied legislators for wage and beneÂ“t increases. Imagine a school administrator making $69.60 per hour, plus perks, guaranteed! While the hoi polloi meekly accept reduced pension beneÂ“ts, union leadersÂ juicy pensions are untouched. In my opinion, thereÂs a 46% probability that Illinois, like Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; San Bernardino, California; Detroit, etc., could enter bankruptcy in the coming four to six years. So I believe every ex-legislator ought to be dunned by the amount his wealth increased while he was in ofÂ“ce and for 10 years afterward. I also believe every legislator should be assessed a pro-rata share of his stateÂs increased debt while heÂs in ofÂ“ce. That should be a contingency of election. IÂd be a nervous Nellie owning an Illinois bond, but if you can afford the risks, go for it. The StreetÂs bullish on Apple (APPL-$200). IÂm unenthusiastic. Justin Hellman of Value Line reckons APPL could trade between $280 to $380 in three to Â“ve years, with earnings of $22 a share and a $5 dividend. I think JustinÂs been eating Twinkies under the power lines for too many hours. APPL is running out of gas and is changing direction with a prodigious leap forward (or backward), taking APPL from its natural habitat into areas where it has failed ignominiously in the past. Sales of iPhones have peaked as the new 5G phones, plus the large foldable phones, have pushed prices over $2,200. Anyone who would who would pay $2,000 for a cellphone must be barking mad. APPL iPhone revenues are down 15 percent, and troubling Chinese connections are pressuring earnings. So, Tim ÂAppleÂŽ Cook, who has nowhere else to turn, is taking his company into the service business. Tim AppleÂs goal for APPL is to become a cable alternative and to create a news and entertainment behemoth using product purchased from other networks that he hopes will reach over 100 worldwide markets. Tim wants to take APPL where no APPL has gone before. ThatÂs worrisome, and I wouldnÂt care to journey with him.

The 17th century English jurist declared it legally impossible because wedding vows implied a wifeÂs ongoing consent to sex. Three and a half centuries later, vestiges of the so-called Âmarital rape exemptionÂŽ or Âspousal defenseÂŽ still exist in most states Â„ remnants of the English common law that helped inform American legal traditions. Legislative attempts to end or modify those exemptions have a mixed record but have received renewed attention in the #MeToo era. The most recent efforts to roll back protections for spouses focus on rapes that happen when a partner is drugged, unconscious or otherwise incapacitated. Minnesota is the latest to take action. The state Legislature this week voted to eliminate the exemption, which had prevented prosecutions in those cases. ÂNo longer will this antiquated and shameful law be on our books,ÂŽ Gov. Tim Walz said as he signed the bill into law on Thursday. ÂThe concept of a pre-existing relationship defense should have never been part of our criminal statutes.ÂŽ In Ohio, determined opponents plan to re-introduce a marital rape bill this month, after two earlier attempts failed. Former lawmaker and prosecutor Greta Johnson was the Â“rst to introduce the Ohio legislation in 2015. She said having to address whether a woman was married to her attacker as part of sexual assault prosecutions struck her as Âappalling and archaic.ÂŽ ÂCertainly, there was a marital exemption lifted years ago, but it was just for what in the prosecutorial world we call the force element Â„ by force or threat of force,ÂŽ she said. ÂYou could still drug your spouse and have sex with them, and itÂs not rape. You could commit sexual imposition against your spouse, and itÂs not a crime. It was really troubling.ÂŽ All 50 states had laws making marital rape a crime by 1993, whether as a result of the two preceding decades of activism by womenÂs rights groups or because of a pivotal court ruling. Nearly 9% of women and 0.8% of men have been raped by an intimate partner, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. National surveys have placed the percentage of women raped within marriage between 10% and 14%. Still, many statesÂ marital rape laws have loopholes Â„ not only involving the victimÂs capacity to consent, but related to age, relationship, use of force or the nature of the penetration. Some impose short timeframes for victims to report spousal rape. A recent Maryland bill sought to erase the marital exemption for all sex crimes. During discussion of the bill, one skeptical male lawmaker wondered whether a spouse might be charged with sexual assault for Âsmacking the otherÂs behindÂŽ during an argument. Maryland Del. Frank Conaway Jr., a Baltimore Democrat, raised religious concerns. ÂIf your religion believes if youÂre married, two are as one body, then what happens? Can you get a religious exemption?ÂŽ he asked. ÂNo, I would actually say that the First Amendment would prevent the state from getting entangled in that sort of judgment,ÂŽ replied Lisae Jordan, executive director of the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault. ÂSo you would have to rely on your faith and your commitment to that to not bring those charges. But thatÂs no place for the General Assembly.ÂŽ The bill died in March. Professor D. Kelly Weisberg of the University of California Hastings College of the Law said the Maryland debate touched on some of the common rationales for the marital rape exemption over the centuries. One is HaleÂs premise from the 1670s that marriage implies irrevocable consent and even property rights by the husband over his wife and her body. Those ideas have never truly disappeared, said Weisberg, author of a new reference book on domestic violence law. She said other arguments for such laws are that marital privacy is a constitutional right, as when spouses canÂt be forced to testify against one another in court, that marital rape isnÂt serious enough to criminalize and that it would be difÂ“cult to prove. For those and other reasons, Weisberg said marital rape laws have not kept pace with other domestic violence laws. That means in some cases an unmarried domestic partner has more legal protections against attack than a spouse. Changing attitudes Â„ and laws Â„ about marital rape is what drove Jenny Teeson to go public this year with her story. The 39-year-old from Andover, Minnesota, was going through a divorce in 2017 when she discovered a Â”ash drive with videos taken by her husband. They showed him penetrating her with an object while she lay drugged and unconscious. In one, their 4-year-old lay next to her on the bed. Teeson turned the videos over to the police. After an investigation, her husband was charged with third-degree criminal sexual assault against an incapacitated victim. Charges were brought in the morning Â„ but dropped by afternoon because of the stateÂs marital rape exemption. ÂI was beside myself,ÂŽ she told The Associated Press. Her ex-husband ultimately pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor charge of invading her privacy and served 30 days in the county jail. Still shocked that he could not be charged with a felony because of the state law, Teeson decided to take action. The AP does not normally identify victims of sexual assault, but Teeson has shared her story publicly, including during testimony before legislative committees. Democratic state Sen. Karla Bigham credited TeesonÂs advocacy for persuading lawmakers to pass the bill. AEquitas, a resource for prosecutors, reported last month that 17 states still maintain some form of the exemption for spouses who rape partners when they are drugged or otherwise incapacitated: Alabama, Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Washington and Wyoming. In Ohio, state Rep. Kristin Boggs, a Democrat, said sheÂs not optimistic the upcoming version of the marital rape bill will be any more successful in the Republican-controlled Legislature than it has been in the past. But at least one past opponent Â„ the Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association Â„ has evolved on the issue. Executive Director Lou Tobin said he expects the group will support a bill that seeks to eliminate the exemption.Some states seek to close loopholes in marital rapeSome 350 years after rape inside marriage was declared legally impossible, efforts are underway to reverse it AP PHOTOJenny Teeson, center with pearls, of Andover, Minnesota, looks on as Minnesota Gov.

(AP) Â„ An explosion and Â“re at an Illinois silicone factory was believed to have killed three people, authorities said Saturday, as they recovered the body of one victim while suspending the search for the other two. Crews suspended their search due to concerns about the stability of the structure, and Waukegan Fire Marshal Steven Lenzi said they would not resume searching until what remains of the plant is torn down. The three were among nine employees who were inside AB Specialty Silicones in the Waukegan, about 50 miles north of Chicago, when the explosion occurred around 9:30 p.m. Friday, Lenzi said. Four were taken to hospitals and two declined treatment. Authorities have not identiÂ“ed the employees. Lenzi said itÂs unlikely the missing workers survived. ÂThe conditions are really rough in there,ÂŽ Lenzi said. ÂThereÂs a lot of damage. There was a lot of Â“re throughout.ÂŽ The plant typically operates 24 hours a day, mixing chemicals and other materials to make silicone, he said. The cause of the explosion has not been determined, Lenzi said. The state Â“re marshal is investigating, along with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It could be days before crews are able to resume their search because heavy piping and other materials that were inside the 30,000-square-foot structure pose a danger to Â“reÂ“ghters and investigators, Lenzi said. Lenzi says more than 100 Â“reÂ“ghters from at least 30 departments responded to the scene.1 body, 2 more believed dead in plant blast HONOLULU (AP) Â„ HawaiiÂs coral reefs provide more than $835 million in Â”ood protection for the state annually, according to a new study. The report by the U.S. Geological Survey, The Nature Conservancy and the University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz established the value that the natural formations provide the islands, The Honolulu StarAdvertiser reported Saturday. The team worked with the engineering and insurance industries to create models estimating values for almost 2,000 miles of U.S. coral reef coastline. ÂMost people have no idea how valuable coral reefs are for coastal protection,ÂŽ co-author Michael Beck, a research professor at UCSanta Cruz, said in a statement. Reefs act as submerged breakwaters, dissipating up to 97% of wave energy offshore. The new research has built what are now the best Â”ood risk maps available for U.S. coastlines, predicting risk at 33 feet by 33 feet, which Beck said is comparable to one-100th of a city block. Reefs provide more than $1.8 billion in Â”ood protection annually, including about $12 million on Kauai, $395 million on Oahu, $377 million on Maui and $51 million on the Big Island, the report said.Study says Hawaii reefs provide $835M in flood protectionNATIONAL NEWS

Retaliatory airstrikes caused large explosions to thunder across Gaza, as plumes of smoke rose into the air. Outgoing Palestinian rockets left long trails of smoke behind them. GazaÂs Health Ministry said a 14-month-old girl, Seba Abu Arar, was killed in an Israeli airstrike that hit their home in east Gaza City. Her pregnant mother, 37, was severely wounded and died later at the hospital, the ministry added. Another child was moderately injured. ÂThey were sitting at the yard in their house with their mother. They were shocked by a missile landing on them,ÂŽ said Abu Nidal Abu Arar, a relative living next door. ÂThis occupation is criminal.ÂŽ In the morning, GazaÂs Health Ministry said a 22-year-old Palestinian man was killed by an Israeli airstrike, and 13 other Palestinians were wounded. Late on Saturday, health ofÂ“cials said a 25-year-old man was killed by an Israeli drone missile as he was traveling on a motorbike in northern Gaza. In Israel, medical ofÂ“cials said an 80-yearold woman was severely wounded by rocket Â“re, a 50-year-old man was moderately wounded by shrapnel and a teenage boy was mildly hurt as he ran for cover. Israeli police said a house in the coastal city of Ashkelon was damaged. The Israeli military accused the Iranianbacked Islamic Jihad of instigating the latest round of violence by shooting and wounding two Israeli soldiers Friday. It said the shooting was not coordinated with Hamas, but said it holds Hamas, as the territoryÂs ruling power, responsible for all Â“re emanating from Gaza. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said Âthe United States strongly condemns the ongoing barrage of rocket attacks by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad from Gaza upon innocent civilians and their communities across Israel.ÂŽ ÂWe stand with Israel and fully support its right to self defense against these abhorrent attacks,ÂŽ she said in a statement. By nightfall, the army said militants had Â“red well over 200 rockets into Israel. It said dozens of the rockets were intercepted by its Iron Dome rocket-defense system. But it closed roads near the Gaza border to civilian trafÂ“c and closed a popular beach as a security precaution. The military said it struck some 120 targets in Gaza, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad military compounds, a Hamas rocket-manufacturing site and a Âhigh-end Islamic Jihad tunnelÂŽ that it said stretched into Israel for use in attacks. Late on Saturday, Israel struck a building that it said housed Hamas military intelligence ofÂ“ces in Gaza City. Another airstrike hit a six-story commercial and residential building. Journalists said the building housed the ofÂ“ce of TurkeyÂs news agency Anadolu. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military. COGAT, the Israeli defense body responsible for Palestinian civilian affairs, said it was closing the Â“shing zone off GazaÂs coast altogether and sealing IsraelÂs two land crossings with Gaza. The crossings are used by Palestinian medical patients to enter and exit the territory, and provide the main entry for cargo into the blockaded territory. The U.N.Âs Mideast envoy, Nickolay Mladenov, said the United Nations was working with Egypt to restore calm and called on all sides to Âde-escalateÂŽ and restore recent understandings. The European UnionÂs ambassador to Israel, Emanuele Giaufret, sharply criticized the rocket attacks on Twitter, saying ÂÂ“ring indiscriminately against civilians (is) unacceptable.ÂŽ Islamic Jihad, which sometimes acts independently of Hamas, threatened to Â“re longer range rockets toward IsraelÂs heartland. In a video that also was seen an implicit claim of responsibility, it showed archived footage of militants attaching warheads to rockets. Israel and Egypt have maintained a crippling blockade on Gaza since Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007. Under the recent understandings, Israel agreed to expand a Â“shing zone off GazaÂs coast, increased imports into Gaza and allow the Gulf state of Qatar to deliver aid to cash-strapped Gaza. But like previous Egyptian-mediated agreements, those understandings have shown signs of unraveling in recent days. On Friday, two Palestinians were fatally shot by Israeli forces during the weekly protests along Israel-Gaza perimeter fence. Palestinian militants also shot and wounded two Israeli soldiers along the border fence. No group claimed responsibility for the shooting. In response, Israeli aircraft carried out retaliatory strikes, killing two Hamas militants.FIREFROM PAGE 1 will need to delete a tweet that violated Twitter rules before he can be reinstated.

VERY UNFAIR!ÂŽ Rosborough said Twitter enforces its rules Âimpartially for all users, regardless of their background or political afÂ“liation.ÂŽ Trump, who uses Twitter extensively to push his message, recently met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey at the White House after attacking the company and complaining that it was not treating him well because he was a Republican. He later described it as a Âgreat meeting.ÂŽ The president had more than social media on his mind Saturday. Trump also tweeted that he was holding out hopes for a deal with North Korea on its nuclear program, as well as improved relations with Russia, now that he feels the special counsel investigation is behind him.BANSFROM PAGE 1Investigators will examine the aircraft, the environment and human factors in trying to discover why the plane rolled into the river. The pavement on the runway wasnÂt grooved, and Landsberg said grooves can help the water Â”ow off the pavement more quickly. He said investigators will examine what role that may have, with reported heavy rain during the landing. The Â”ight took off Friday from the U.S. military base in Cuba with 136 passengers and seven crew members. It was a regular charter run by Miami Air International, which has many military contracts, including weekly Â”ights between the Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the Jacksonville air station as well as Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. The company didnÂt immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press. The aircraft had no prior history of accidents, said NTSB vice chairman Bruce Landsberg. Among those onboard was Cheryl Bormann, a defense attorney, who described the chaotic landing. The plane Âliterally hit the ground and then it bounced. It was clear that the pilot did not have complete control of the plane because it bounced some more, it swerved and tilted left and right,ÂŽ she told CNN. ÂThe pilot was trying to control it but couldnÂt, and then all of a sudden it smashed into something.ÂŽ Bormann said people werenÂt screaming because the Â”ight staff worked quickly to give direction. Everyone onboard helped one another to put on their life vests and then evacuated to safety. A veteran death penalty attorney from Chicago, Bormann has been defending Walid bin Attash, who is charged with helping to train some of the 9/11 hijackers. The U.S. holds 40 men at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. It has been prosecuting some of them by military commissions, including Â“ve charged with planning and aiding the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Their cases have been in the pretrial stage since May 2012 and no trial has been scheduled. Authorities say everyone onboard the Â”ight was alive and accounted for, but nearly two dozen people sought medical attention. The passengers were a mix of military personnel and families, and a few civilians. While some were staying in the area, others planned to Â”y on to other parts of the country, Connor said. It wasnÂt immediately clear what went wrong. Boeing said in a tweet Friday night that it was investigating: ÂWe are aware of an incident in Jacksonville, Fla., and are gathering information.ÂŽ Connor said he didnÂt know what impact the weather had on the Â”ight. ÂI was at home when this happened and there were thunderstorms and lightning,ÂŽ he said. The plane had been expected to return to Cuba on Saturday to carry other members of the military, lawyers and others to Andrews after this weekÂs military commission hearings of people charged with war crimes. It wasnÂt immediately clear how long it would take to remove the plane from the river.PLANEFROM PAGE 1and ... the security of the people from the threats and invasion by any forces.ÂŽ South KoreaÂs Joint Chiefs of Staff said Âseveral projectilesÂŽ had been launched an area near the coastal town of Wonsan and that they Â”ew up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) before splashing into the sea toward the northeast. That roughly matched the distance between the area and the South Korean capital of Seoul, although the North in SundayÂs report did not issue any direct threat or warning toward the South and the United States. Experts say the North may increase these sorts of low-level provocations to apply pressure on the United States to agree to reduce crushing international sanctions. The launch comes amid a diplomatic breakdown that has followed the failed summit earlier this year between Trump and Kim over the NorthÂs pursuit of nuclear bombs that can accurately target the U.S. mainland. The North probably has viable shorter-range nuclear armed missiles, but it still needs more tests to perfect its longer-range weapons, according to outside analysts. Trump said Saturday that he still believes a nuclear deal with North Korea will happen. He tweeted that Kim Âfully realizes the great economic potential of North Korea, & will do nothing to interfere or end it.ÂŽ Trump added: ÂHe also knows that I am with him & does not want to break his promise to me. Deal will happen!ÂŽ White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that the United States was aware of North KoreaÂs actions and would continue to monitor the situation. South Korea said in a statement itÂs Âvery concernedÂŽ about North KoreaÂs weapons launches, calling them a violation of last yearÂs inter-Korean agreements to reduce animosities between the countries. The statement, issued after an emergency meeting of top ofÂ“cials at the presidential Blue House in Seoul, also urged North Korea to stop committing acts that would raise military tensions and join efforts to resume nuclear diplomacy. North Korea wants widespread sanctions relief in return for disarmament moves that the United States has rejected as insufÂ“cient. In a sign of PyongyangÂs growing frustration, it has recently demanded that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo be removed from nuclear negotiations and criticized national security adviser John Bolton. North Korea said last month that it had tested a new type of unspeciÂ“ed Âtactical guided weapon,ÂŽ which experts said could be anything from anti-tank weapons to cruise missiles. North Korea could choose to Â“re more missiles with longer ranges in coming weeks to ramp up its pressure on the United States to come up with a roadmap for nuclear talks by the end of this year, said Nam Sung-wook, a professor at Korea University. ÂNorth Korea wants to say, ÂWe have missiles and nuclear weapons to cope with (U.S.-led) sanctions,Â Â Nam said. ÂThey can Â“re short-range missiles a couple more times this month, and there is no guarantee that they wonÂt Â“re a medium-range missile next month.ÂŽ There has not been a conÂ“rmed ballistic missile test by North Korea since its November 2017 test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, which demonstrated potential capability to reach deep into the U.S. mainland. That year saw a string of increasingly powerful weapons tests from the North and a belligerent response from President Donald Trump that had many in the region fearing war. During the diplomacy that followed the NorthÂs weapons tests of 2017, Kim said that the North would not test nuclear devices or ICBMs. The shortrange projectiles launched on Saturday donÂt appear to violate that self-imposed moratorium, and they may instead be a way to register KimÂs displeasure with Washington without having the diplomacy collapse. South KoreaÂs liberal president, Moon Jae-in, has doggedly pursued engagement with the North and is seen as a driving force behind the two summits between Trump and Kim. South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha talked by phone with Pompeo about the North Korean launches, KangÂs ministry said in a statement. The ministry also said that South KoreaÂs chief nuclear envoy, Lee Do-hoon, had a telephone conversation with Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea who is scheduled to travel to Seoul next week for talks.NKOREAFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDED VIA APA charter plane carrying 143 people and traveling from Cuba to north Florida ended up in a river at the end of a runway Friday night, though no critical injuries or deaths were reported.

My profit-sharing helped me stand out. My founder opened a supermarket in 1940 that featured air conditioning, frozen-food cases, dairy cases, a flower shop and more. Today IÂm the U.S.Âs largest employee-owned supermarket chain, and one of its largest-volume supermarket chains, as well.

WeÂll announce it in next weekÂs edition. patterns repeat themselves and seek ones they believe predict growth. They ignore many factors that affect a companyÂs performance, such as its cash flow, debt load, growth prospects, regulatory environment, country of operations and so on. Critics of technical analysis note that itÂs based on mining data for patterns, and it involves a high degree of subjectivity. While some studies have found some value in technical analysis, a 2008 study by researchers from New Zealand and Australia tested more than 5,000 technical trading strategies in 49 different country indexes, finding that none added value Âbeyond what may be expected by chance.ÂŽ Many of the worldÂs most successful investors Â„ including Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Templeton and Philip Fisher Â„ use fundamental analysis. If you want to be a successful long-term investor, consider sticking with fundamental analysis instead of engaging in technical trading.The Motley Fool TakeA Big, Fat DividendWith a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, a hefty dividend and underappreciated growth potential, AT&TÂs (NYSE: T) stock is appealing. ItÂs no secret that the companyÂs growth in sales and earnings has been sluggish lately, but the stock offers substantial upside at recent prices. Shares recently sported a 6.5% dividend yield and traded with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 11. The telecommunications giant has increased its payout annually for 34 years running (albeit gradually), and even with recent pressures, the business is generating enough free cash flow to cover the dividend and leave the door safely open for more payout hikes. AT&TÂs DirecTV television business is losing subscribers, but it has AmericaÂs second-largest mobile wireless subscription base, and the largest pay-TV base. With its acquisition of Time Warner and its prized assets (HBO, CNN, TNT and TBS), AT&T now has strength in entertainment content, distribution and advertising. Meanwhile, AT&T is beginning an aggressive rollout of its 5G network into new cities. The fruits of this costly, multiyear spending should be significant, with an expected smartphone upgrade cycle leading to large increases in streaming-data consumption. ThatÂs AT&TÂs bread and butter, and it should lead to improved profit margins for its wireless division. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentDrilling DownIÂve made a bunch of dumb investments Â„ such as buying into Atwood Oceanics. I bought it to add some diversification to my portfolio, as it was in the energy sector. It did well for a while, but then started getting battered by low oil prices, along with other energy companies. It ended up being bought by Ensco, and IÂm still holding those shares, hoping for a big turnaround. Â„ Mark M., Radford, Virginia The Fool Responds: Atwood Oceanics certainly looked promising in the past. It was a smallish offshore driller, and was aiming to specialize in ultradeep offshore drilling, which can be more lucrative. It had a backlog of contracted business, too. But low oil prices, coupled with an oversupply of offshore rigs, presented a tough challenge, along with low-cost shale oil making deepwater drilling less attractive. It was a promising time for stronger players in the industry to consolidate, buying weaker ones, and Ensco scooped up Atwood (later buying Rowan, as well). The future for Ensco Rowan is not crystal-clear, but bulls expect there to be more deep-water drilling in the future, noting that Ensco Rowan has several billion dollarsÂ worth of contracted backlog and relatively little debt. ItÂs in a stronger competitive position, with the industry more consolidated now, and oil prices have been rising lately Â„ though they will likely always be at least somewhat volatile. Municipal Bonds 101QShould I invest in municipal bonds? How do they work? Â„ A.L., Decatur, IllinoisAParking some money in municipal bonds can make sense for many investors. Sometimes referred to as Âmunis,ÂŽ municipal bonds are essentially loans in which state or local governments borrow money from investors, promising to repay it with interest. The money is typically used to pay for projects such as building or repairing schools or roads, or addressing transportation or housing needs. Just as states and cities vary widely in their financial health, municipal bonds vary in their riskiness. While Âgeneral obligationÂŽ municipal bonds are backed by the issuerÂs credit, Ârevenue bondsÂŽ can be riskier, as they depend on the project being funded to generate the needed revenue. One advantage of municipal bonds vs. corporate bonds is that the interest they pay is usually exempt from federal taxation and often state taxation, as well. (Capital gains on municipal bonds are taxable, though.) Municipal-bond interest might trigger other taxes, such as Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) or Social Security benefit taxation, and it could also increase your Medicare premiums. You might want to consult a financial adviser before investing a lot in municipal bonds. The minimum investment in municipal bonds is often $5,000.

Â„ M.Y., Modesto, CaliforniaAClick over to our new site, TheAscent.com It recently listed interest rates of 3% or higher for five-year CDs and 2.7% or higher for two-year CDs from a handful of financial institutions. Remember that youÂre not restricted to banks and credit unions near you; you can do business with online banks, or ones based far away.Want more information about stocks?

Consider, for example, fundamental stock analysis vs. technical analysis. If you invest based on fundamental analysis, you study companies and assess factors such as their financial health, competitive advantages, management quality, growth prospects and profitability. You aim to buy stocks when theyÂre trading for less than their intrinsic value, using tools such as price-toearnings (P/E) ratios or discounted cash flow calculations. You understand that shares of a companyÂs stock represent a small ownership stake in a real business. Technical analysts, on the other hand, seek momentum; they focus on charts and graphs of companiesÂ stock price movements and trading volumes, looking for promising patterns.

The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My father recently passed away. I wanted to be sure I was appropriately dressed for his funeral, so I shopped for the most conservative outt I could nd. When I arrived at the service, I was taken aback by what my sister-in-law was wearing. I told her I didnÂt think her dress was appropriate for the occasion. It was skintight and all lace. I told her what she was wearing looked like something worn at a cocktail party. Once the words were out of my mouth I knew I shouldnÂt have said anything. I immediately apologized and said she looked really good in the dress, and it was attering and rather sexy. My brother called the next day. He was furious and said that he had chosen it. I feel like at a funeral the dress should be like what youÂd wear at church or a business meeting. I may be wrong. I know I should have kept my opinion to myself and regret the comment I made. Should I just let time heal this? She and my brother are extremely upset. Â„ SAID NO TO THE DRESS DEAR SAID NO: When people are grieving, they sometimes make comments they wouldnÂt otherwise. Apologize to both of them for your thoughtlessness and insensitivity, and hope they forgive you. Many years ago, I attended the funeral of a friend in his early 30s who had died in a tragic accident. ÂJohnÂsÂŽ mother was friendly with mine, and we went to support her. JohnÂs ancee, ÂLinda,ÂŽ was someone I also knew. When she showed up wearing an orange mini-dress, his mother was appalled. She told me she thought it was highly disrespectful. When I asked Linda later why she had chosen that particular dress, her response made me want to cry. She said she had worn it because it was JohnÂs favorite dress, and he loved seeing her in it. I learned a lesson that day: SomeoneÂs attire at a funeral is far less important than whatÂs in the personÂs heart. DEAR ABBY: I am an avid reader. Whenever I nd an interesting article or story that I believe someone will enjoy, I cut out the article or copy the link and send it to that person. My issue is, I donÂt think they ever read what I send them. When I bring it up during casual conversation because I think it would be nice to discuss, I nd that the person hasnÂt read it and says, ÂOh, yes, IÂm going to read it,ÂŽ but I donÂt think they ever do. Is sharing pushy? Do people read anymore? Should I stop sending articles and stories? Â„ PASSING IT ON IN NEW YORK DEAR PASSING: You may be overdoing it in your desire to share. If someone tells you twice that they didnÂt get around to reading what you sent, stop. DEAR ABBY: Graduation is fast approaching, and the pressure is on. I am doing good in school, but work and school are draining all of my energy. How can I not be so tired? I canÂt stop work, and I denitely need school and college. Can you give me some advice for managing time? Â„ TIRED IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR TIRED: Recognize that you are running a kind of marathon. Establish an ironclad schedule that allows you to get the rest you need, and donÂt deviate from it. IÂm not saying it will be fun, but it will get you through and allow you to reach your goal without making yourself sick. Dear Readers: As you know, car seats are one of the most important purchases you can make for your family. First, thoroughly research the wide variety of seats before you buy any. Make certain that you get the right type for the age of each of your small children. To do this, use these hints: Test several brands before you decide. Look for ones that are easy to fasten and t really well in your car. Then make certain they are properly installed. Get help if necessary. Never buy used car seats because they might be damaged or dangerous for your children. For more information, go to www.nhtsa.gov. The National Highway Trac Safety Administration provides specic charts and child safety data. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: We were sitting outside when I noticed green fuzzy stu growing on our brick patio. How can I remove it? Â„ Betsy in North Carolina Dear Betsy: When moss appears, it can be slippery and denitely not attractive. Removing it ASAP is important. To get it o, mix 1 cup of bleach with 1 gallon of water. Pour into a spray bottle and spritz over the mossy areas (you might have to repeat this). Leave on for ve minutes. Do not allow any of this solution to land on nearby plants or wooden furniture, because the bleach could damage them. If any does, brush o the mixture and rinse completely. Note: Before starting to spray, test a bit of the mixture on a hidden spot to make sure the bleach wonÂt discolor the bricks. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: This ma j or famil y event can be so overwhelming. You will make many lists and set up a timeline to help do it in an orderly way. DonÂt forget to make this one really important call when you begin this task: Call your insurance agent to be certain that your homeownerÂs or renterÂs insurance will cover your items while in transit. Also, carefully read the contract with the moving company BEFORE moving day to see what the moverÂs insurance covers. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: If this disgusting odor has ended up in your car, take all these steps to get rid of it: First, open all the windows and doors to help the smell dissipate. If the smell still remains, take these other steps: Â„Spray an odor neutralizer onto fabric upholstery. Scrub rubber or carpet mats with hot, soapy water. Â„To remove the smell on the outside of the car, take it to a carwash. Â„Mix hydrogen peroxide and water together and put into a spray bottle. Spray it onto the tires and the underside of the car. Wipe up any dripping peroxide because it could bleach some surfaces. Â„You might have to repeat all of the above to remove this awful odor. Â„ Heloise Dear Readers: These are indispensable cleaning tools in our homes, and because we use them so much, they do get dirty. And along with everything else, they need to be cleaned, too. HereÂs how to do it so they will last longer: Machine wash them in warm, soapy water, but wash cloths separate from towels because the microber will attach to lint in the water and it will stay on the cloth. DonÂt add fabric softeners or chlorine bleach because they will make the microber lose its eectiveness. Tumble dry on low heat or air-dry. Be aware that microber can melt at high temperatures, so never iron it. Â„ HeloiseCriticism of sister-in-lawÂs funeral attire causes a rift within familyDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Â„ Maximum Security became the Â“rst winner disqualiÂ“ed for interference in the Kentucky Derby, leading to an agonizing wait and an eventual stunning reversal that made 65-1 shot Country House the winner Saturday. Country House Â“nished second in the slop before an objection was raised, causing a lengthy delay while stewards repeatedly reviewed several angles of video footage, before he was elevated into the winnerÂs circle. That gave Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott his Â“rst Derby victory at age 65. ÂItÂs bittersweet. You always want to win with a clean trip and have everybody recognize the horse as the very good horse and great athlete that he is,ÂŽ Mott said. ÂDue to the disqualiÂ“cation, I think some of that is diminished.ÂŽ Jockey Flavien Prat, who originated the claim of foul, also won his Â“rst Derby. ÂIÂm kind of speechless right now,ÂŽ Prat said, letting out a long sigh. Country House paid $132.40 to win Â„ the second-highest payout in the DerbyÂs 145-year history. ÂLooking at the toteboard thereÂs probably a lot of people that didnÂt think we could win,ÂŽ Mott said, Âbut thatÂs horse racing.ÂŽ Country House was dismissed as a long shot with a bad post on the far outside. It was only the chestnut coltÂs second win in seven career starts and his Â“rst stakes victory. Maybe this was one for his father: Lookin At Lucky got saddled with the dreaded No. 1 post in the 2010 Derby, where he got pinned to the rail and wound up sixth. He rebounded to win the Preakness two weeks later. The disqualiÂ“cation was a crushing turn of events for Maximum Security trainer Jason Servis and jockey Luis Saez, who already had begun celebrating what they thought were their Â“rst Derby victories. Instead, previously undefeated Maximum Security was dropped to 17th of 19 horses. Sent off as the 9-2 second choice, Maximum Security was placed behind all the horses that he bothered. Prat claimed that Maximum Security ducked out in the Â“nal turn and forced several horses to steady, including Long Range Toddy. War of Will came perilously close to clipping heels with Maximum Security, which could have caused a chain-reaction accident. ÂThere were two horses in the race that lost all chance to win a Kentucky Derby,ÂŽ Mott said. ÂThey were in position at the time to hit the board. If what happened to us was the only thing they were looking at I donÂt think you would have seen a disqualiÂ“cation.ÂŽ Mott said the incident was caused by Maximum SecurityÂs action and not SaezÂs riding tactics. ÂI donÂt think Luis Saez did anything intentionally,ÂŽ the trainer said. ÂMy heart actually aches for them a little bit. ThatÂs the way it is. IÂve been on the other end of it, just not in the Kentucky Derby.ÂŽ The stewards reviewed race footage for nearly 20 minutes while keeping the crowd of 150,729 in suspense, clutching their betting tickets. Trainers and jockeys involved stared at the closest video screen waiting for a result. ÂI know the stewards had a very, very difÂ“cult decision,ÂŽ Mott said. ÂIÂm damn glad they put our number up.ÂŽ Code of Honor was moved up to second and Country House wins Kentucky Derby after controversial disqualification HORSE RACINGMaximum Security becomes first winning horse to be taken down for interference in Run for the Roses By JACOB HOAGSPORTS WRITERJACKSONVILLE Â„ The state meet brings quite a bit of stress for itÂs attendees both in the stands and on the track. ItÂs the thrill of competition and the fear of not living up to expectations. Taking the Â“eld at the University of North Florida for the Â“rst time, North PortÂs Daham-Shel JeanÂs day was full of electrifying highs and a few unexpected bumps along the way. Getting to the Â“eld late, Jean got very little warmup time ahead of her participation in the Class 4A long jump event. Able to block it out, Jean leaped 17 feet, 5 1/4 inches, good enough for a personal best and an 8th place podium Â“nish. ÂItÂs a sigh of relief,ÂŽ Jean said. ÂIt was really stressful. I got here really late, but I gave it my all and made my coaches proud and thatÂs all I care about. Coming in late I was like, IÂm gonna freak out, no warmups. But I just really had to focus and PR and thatÂs exactly what I did.ÂŽ Jean said she qualiÂ“ed for states in sixth grade, but was unable to compete due to injury. In addition to the long jump, she Â“nished 23rd in the 100-meter dash with a time of 13.02 seconds. ÂItÂs amazing,ÂŽ Jean said of the experience.

In a matchup between the team with the best record in the majors and rebuilding, last-place Orioles, Bundy (1-4) was the difference. The righthander gave up three hits in 7 1/3 innings, struck out four, walked one and hit a batter. Bundy had lost 11 of 12 decisions since the start of last August and came into this game with a 6.67 ERA over six starts after allowing nine home runs in 28 1/3 innings. The victory improved BaltimoreÂs major leagueworst home record to 4-11 and dropped the RaysÂ road mark to 12-5, still the best the big leagues. Bundy was pulled after giving up a one-out double to Michael Perez in the eighth. Righthander Shawn Armstrong got Willy Adames to hit a comebacker, and the pitcher threw the ball over the head of Â“rst baseman Chris Davis, seemingly allowing Perez to score. But home plate umpire Lance Barrett ruled Adames ran inside the Â“rst-base line, called him out and sent Perez back to second base. Armstrong then struck out Brandon Lowe to end the inning. Mychal Givens worked the ninth for his third save. After Jonathan Villar doubled and scored in the Â“rst inning and drove in a run with a force out in the third, Smith led off the fourth with a shot to center off Yonny Chirinos (4-1). Ryne Stanek was scheduled to start for Tampa Bay, but the threat of rain caused manager Kevin Cash to switch to Chirinos, whom he thought was better suited to handle a delay. The rain never came, and Chirinos allowed three runs and seven hits over 7 1/3 innings to absorb his Â“rst loss since Aug. 17, 2018, at Boston.

(AP) Â„ Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk is expected to miss the rest of the playoffs after having shoulder surgery. General manager Don Waddell said Saturday that the 27-year-old van Riemsdyk underwent surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to miss four to six months. The Hurricanes recalled defenseman Jake Bean from their AHL affiliate in Charlotte on an emergency basis. Van Riemsdyk was hurt in the first period of Game 2 of the second-round sweep of the New York Islanders last Sunday. He played in the first nine games of the postseason for Carolina, which has advanced to the Eastern Conference final in its first playoff appearance since 2009.CanesÂ van Riemsdyk out 4-6 months after shoulder surgeryCarolina Hurricanes defenseman expected to miss rest of playoffs AP PHOTOCarolina Hurricanes defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk skates with the puck against Washington Capitals left wing Andre Burakovsky during the second period of Game 5 of an NHL hockey Â“rstround playo series, Saturday, April 20 in Washington. NHL: Carolina Hurricanes By STEPHEN HAWKINSAP SPORTS WRITERThe St. Louis Blues have been playing desperate hockey all of 2019 Â„ since being in last place at the start of January and making an incredible comeback to make the playoffs. Now they are trailing in the postseason for the first time, down 3-2 in their second-round series against the Dallas Stars, and have to win consecutive games to advance to the Western Conference finals. ÂItÂs no different, all year, ever since Jan. 1 weÂve had to climb and weÂve faced adversity,ÂŽ Blues center Brayden Schenn said. ÂWin or you go home. Simple as that,ÂŽ center Jaden Schwartz said. ÂThe desperation level needs to be higher than itÂs ever been.ÂŽ Actually, it would be win and go home for a chance to advance. But St. Louis first has to win Game 6 in Dallas on Sunday (3 p.m EDT, NBC). It is the only NHL playoff game on the schedule for the day since Carolina has already wrapped up a four-game sweep of the New York Islanders in their series. The Stars took the series lead with their 2-1 road win Friday night. They will now try to repeat what they did in the opening round, when they won three games in a row to close out that series with a Game 6 win at home. ÂThe series becomes more determined and weÂve become more determined as a group,ÂŽ said Dallas veteran center Jason Spezza, who has goals in consecutive games ÂYou sense the importance of the games, and weÂve made good adjustments. ... ItÂs just a matter of staying in the present.ÂŽ Before their Game 6 clincher in the first round against Nashville on April 22, the Stars hadnÂt won a playoff series on home ice since 2008 Â„ the last time they made it to the Western Conference finals. John Klingberg scored the game-winner 17 minutes into overtime to close out the Predators, in a game the defenseman said Stars players treated like a Game 7. While that might not necessarily be the approach of their rookie NHL coach, Montgomery knows that clincher could benefit them now. ÂWe go into every game trying to have a great start and worry about staying in the moment in that game,ÂŽ he said Saturday. ÂI think the experience of having that Game 6 ... I think thatÂs going to help us be better for tomorrow.ÂŽ Except for a bad flub when trying to clear a puck in the third period, a mistake Schwartz quickly converted into a goal, Stars goalie Ben Bishop was spectacular again in Game 5 against the Blues. The Vezina Trophy finalist stopped 38 shots and his .936 save percentage this postseason is a tick better than his franchise-record .934 save percentage in the regular season. ÂHeÂs been our brick wall back there,ÂŽ Montgomery said, making it clear that the 6-foot-7 goaltender was the difference in taking the series lead. ÂI didnÂt think we were on top of our game, and weÂre going to have to be better if weÂre going to have success on Sunday,ÂŽ the coach said. ÂWe have to be better as a team. We canÂt rely on Bish as much as we did (in Game 5).ÂŽ The Blues are 4-1 on the road this postseason, winning their first four away from home before losing Game 4 on Wednesday in Dallas. With Bishop on the back end, the Stars are 29 of 31 on penalty kills this postseason. Nashville failed to get a goal on any of its 15 power plays, and St. Louis is only 2 of 16. ÂThe PKÂs been doing well,ÂŽ Bishop said. ÂWe know theyÂre probably going to have their best game the next one so weÂve got to be ready and guys are doing what it takes, sacrificing blocked shots and good communication. WeÂve just got to continue with it.ÂŽ The Stars overcame an early 1-0 deficit to win Game 4, when they had four consecutive goals. ItÂs the only game between the two teams this season Â„ four in the regular season, and five in the playoffs Â„ there has been a lead change. But the Blues have outshot Dallas 27-10 in the third period combined the last two games, and have a goal in each of those periods. ÂOur last two third periods have been good,ÂŽ Schenn said. ÂObviously weÂre playing from behind and weÂre pushing hard, but weÂve got to bring that mentality into the first period the next game.ÂŽBlues still desperate and trailing Stars going into Game 6Blues have been playing desperate hockey all of 2019 and need to stay that way against Stars NHL: St. Louis Blues By JIMMY GOLENAP SPORTS WRITERBOSTON Â„ David Pastrnak scored his second goal of the game with 1:28 left to cap a wild third period, and Tuukka Rask stopped 33 shots to help the Boston Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 on Saturday night and take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference semiÂ“nal series. Rask got some help from the post when Matt Duchene stretched out to try to tip the tying goal in with less than a minute remaining and Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky off for an extra skater. In all, six goals were scored in the third, four during a 3 1/2-minute span that turned BostonÂs 2-0 lead into a 3-3 tie. Brad Marchand added a goal and two assists, and David Krejci also scored for Boston. Bobrovsky made 32 saves for the Blue Jackets, who need a win in Game 6 on Monday night back in Columbus to force the series back to Boston for a decisive seventh game on Wednesday. The winner will advance to the Eastern Conference Â“nals to face the Carolina Hurricanes, who swept the New York Islanders in their series. With Hall of Famer Bobby Orr greeting the team before the game and then watching from a box, the Bruins led 1-0 after one period and took a 2-0 lead early in the third when Connor CliftonÂs crossing pass came through the crease to Marchand and he one-timed it toward the upper right corner. Bobrovsky stretched out his glove to block it, but the effort caused him to fall forward onto the ice. Before he could right himself Marchand had corralled the rebound and shot again at the same spot Â„ this time Â“nding the net. ThatÂs when the scoring opened up. With about 10 minutes left, Jones Â”ipped one toward the crease and it deÂ”ected off Matt GrzelcykÂs stick and RaskÂs pads to sneak inside the post. It took more than three minutes to review Â„ and no view of the puck crossing the line was shown to the TD Garden crowd Â„ but the goal was conÂ“rmed. Just 43 seconds later, Pastrnak wristed the puck in from the left circle to restore BostonÂs 2-goal lead. Fifty-one seconds after that, the Blue Jackets cut it to 3-2 on Ryan DzingelÂs goal and less than two minutes after that they tied it on a slapshot from the high slot by Dean Kukan. But Pastrnak helped Boston avoid overtime when he Â”ipped a crossice pass from Marchand into the goal for the game-winner.Pastrnak, Bruins beat Blue Jackets 4-3 for 3-2 series lead NHL: Boston 4, Columbus 3
The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 makes it back as a senior. For others, like Venice triple jumper Michael Trapani, it was time to put those lessons to good use. Trapani broke the school record last year at states, but Â“nished 17th in the event. Nerves played a role and this year he vowed to not let that happen. Though he wasnÂt able to break his previous record, Trapani jumped his way to the podium with an eighth-place Â“nish. He jumped 43 feet, 9 3/4 inches. ÂIÂm feeling good. I didnÂt jump as far as I wanted to, but I got a medal, which is my ultimate goal,ÂŽ Trapani said. ÂAfter Â“nishing 17th last year, I wasnÂt happy with that so I wanted to come back this year and get a medal. IÂm much more conÂ“dent (this year). Last year I was shaking on the runway, didnÂt feel like I belonged there. This year I knew I had a place here.ÂŽ The downside is that the state meet marks the close of his athletic career at Venice. That hasnÂt sunk in for him just yet. ÂItÂs awesome,ÂŽ Trapani said. ÂThe trip we take up here is great. ItÂs a good bonding time and then getting to triple jump with all of these amazing athletes. ItÂs awesome. It isnÂt sinking in yet, not really. But I couldnÂt ask to close it out much better.ÂŽPlaying the fieldWith most of the Â“eld events pushed back from Friday to Saturday due to inclement weather, the outskirts of Hodges stadium was Â“lled with event going round the clock. Among those events was the 3A girls high jump, which featured the highest placer from our area. Sarah Cote of Lemon Bay, who recently signed with UNF to compete on the same track she battled on Saturday, took home the only top-3 Â“nish. Cote breezed through the Â“rst three jumps, clearing each on her Â“rst attempt up to 5 feet, 1 1/4 inch. She had two less misses than the two girls ahead of her, but she was unable to clear 5 feet, 3 3/4 inches. Also competing in the high jump was DeSoto County senior Nate Maybell, who Â“nished in 17th with a jump of 6 feet, 1 1/2 inches. CoteÂs teammate Elijah Houser competed, but was unable to clear the Â“rst height. Another Manta Ray was getting it done over at the shot put earlier in the morning. Liam Johnson Â“nished 17th in the event with a throw of 44 feet, 2 inches. Most of the Â“eld athletes were affected by FridayÂs weather, but not many were put in a bind quite like Charlotte pole vaulter Natalie Jen. Jen was supposed to compete at 1 p.m. on Friday, but multiple rain delays pushed it until Saturday Morning, which happened to also be the morning of prom. Jen wrapped up her event, clearing 10 feet, 10 inches, and headed back south to get ready for the dance. Jen made her fourth trip to the state meet. She Â“nished second as a freshman and sophomore, but an injury has made it more challenging the past two years. ÂThe competition has deÂ“nitely gotten stronger,ÂŽ Jen said of her ninthplace Â“nish. ÂTheyÂve gotten really good, so itÂs really hard to place now. IÂm a little disappointed, but I have to go to prom.ÂŽ Other Â“eld competitors included VeniceÂs Aja Jones (17th, 3A shot put) and Marlem Louis (15th, 3A discus) and Port CharlotteÂs Brandon Leacock (12th, 3A discus).Up and down day for relaysRelays are unlike individual events. Not only do you have to run your best race, you have to count on your teammates to do the same and pull their weight. On the Â“nal leg of the 3A girls 4x800 relay, Venice senior Gabby La Rock did just that. Trailing a touted squad in East Lake, La Rock charged and picked her spot, helping her team earn a 10th place Â“nish in the event. ÂI passed in the last 200-300 (meters),ÂŽ La Rock said. ÂI just wanted it so badly. ThatÂs kind of my spot, right at the last corner. She had a big lead, but I just thought, ÂI have to get her.ÂÂŽ Charlotte also had a 4x800 team in that race and finished 17th with a time of 10:00.44. Unlike the experienced team of Venice, North PortÂs young bunch qualified for states despite being mostly comprised of sophomores. Even after switching up the lineup at the last second due to a medical issue, the goal of breaking the school record of 8:06 was still in play. The Bobcats fell short with a time of 8:15, but they earned invaluable experience as they continue to grow in the sport. ÂItÂs definitely not what we wanted,ÂŽ Alvaro Amaya said. ÂWe had to swap out our starter and he still ran well. I had some congestion on the first handoff. We know what weÂre up against next year when we come back.ÂŽ ÂWe got here and next year weÂre planning to do the same thing,ÂŽ anchor Joseph Smith added. ÂWeÂre gonna work hard and hopefully do better than we did this year.ÂŽ CharlotteÂs sixth place finish in the 4x100 relay topped the local teams, though they seemed a little disappointed following the race. After Regionals they said they were shooting for top-3. The Lady Tarpons finished in 48.06 seconds, 2.02 seconds behind third. Wrapping up the relays was the Venice 4x400, which finished in 11th.Best of the restAfter dominating Districts and Regionals, CharlotteÂs Eunice Noel met her match on Saturday. Her best finish was in the 100-meter hurdles where she finished sixth with a 14.53 second time. She also competed in the 300-meter hurdle, placing 16th, and the 4x100 relay. Teammate Annabelle Anderson-Prater was part of the 4x100 team and also placed 22nd in the 200-meter dash. North PortÂs Teagan Sabo also finished 22nd in the 200. In a repeat of Friday night, the 3200 meters, which featured Port CharlotteÂs John PerezDunn, was postponed due to lightning.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019 MLB ROUNDUP SCOREBOARDCubs 6, Cardinals 5Javier Baez led off the eighth inning with a tiebreaking homer, and the surging Chicago Cubs wiped out a four-run deficit to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 on Saturday. Baez drove a 2-2 pitch from John Brebbia (1-1) to right for his 11th homer. Taylor Davis hit a tying grand slam in the fourth against Michael Wacha for his first career homer. Brandon Kintzler (1-0) worked a scoreless eighth. The right-hander threw 81 pitches, just as Kyle Hendricks did in FridayÂs four-hit shutout, but was nowhere near as effective. He gave up five runs and six hits while walking five in four-plus innings. Jose Martinez homered leading off the second for the Cardinals. Wacha doubled and scored in the third, and drove in two with a single during a three-run fourth. Indians 5, Mariners 4Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians rallied past Seattle 5-4 Saturday, the MarinersÂ sixth straight loss. Santana tagged Connor Sadzeck (0-1) for his fifth home run of the season. Tim Beckham hit a leadoff home run to break a 3-all tie in the eighth Â„ SeattleÂs fourth solo homer of the game. Edwin Encarnacion, Daniel Vogelbach and Dylan Moore also connected for Seattle, which leads the AL with 65 home runs. Carlos Carrasco allowed all four home runs, a career high for the righthander, who struck out nine in 7 2/3 innings.Royals 15, Tigers 3Alex Gordon homered as part of a four-run first inning, and the Kansas City Royals routed the Detroit Tigers 15-3. The Royals chased Detroit right-hander Tyson Ross (1-4) in the second inning and scored the gameÂs first seven runs. Homer Bailey (3-3) allowed two runs in six innings in a solid outing for Kansas City. Whit Merrifield also homered for the Royals, and Jeimer Candelario and Ronny Rodriguez went deep for the Tigers. Kelvin Gutierrez had four hits and a stolen base for Kansas City in his eighth major league game. His outing Saturday was a forgettable one. He allowed six hits in the first inning, including GordonÂs two-run homer that opened the scoring and an RBI double by Jorge Soler. Ryan OÂHearn added a run-scoring single to make it 4-0. Adalberto Mondesi hit an RBI triple in the second, and after a one-out walk by Hunter Dozier, Ross was done.Twins 7, Yankees 3Jonathan Schoop thought heÂd hit a three-run homer in the fourth innning, only to see Yankees right fielder Cameron Maybin run back, jump and stick his glove over the wall to make the catch. After opening this series with a 6-3 loss on Friday, Jake Odorizzi and the Twins rebounded nicely by never trailing and holding off a late charge. Mitch Garver and C.J. Cron homered off J.A. Happ (1-3) and Nelson Cruz went deep in the ninth. Odorizzi (4-2) kept up his impressive run, pitching two-hit ball over six shutout innings. He won his fourth start in a row, having outdueled Justin Verlander and the Astros 1-0 in his previous outing.Braves 9, Marlins 2Ozzie Albies tied a career high with five RBIs. Ronald Acua Jr. tied a career high with four hits. Mike Soroka watched his already-tiny ERA plummet. AlbiesÂ sixth-inning grand slam put Atlanta up for good, Soroka was dominant in a career-best seven innings and the result was a second easy win for the Braves in as many nights. They rolled past the Marlins 9-2. Brian McCann drove in three runs for Atlanta, which trailed 2-0 after five innings before breaking out against MiamiÂs bullpen.Reds 9, Giants 2Nick Senzel hit his first major league homer two innings after being robbed of one by center fielder Kevin Pillar, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-2 Saturday night. Pillar climbed the fence and made a spectacular grab on SenzelÂs drive in the third, but CincinnatiÂs top prospect left no doubt his next time up in the fifth. He followed Derek DietrichÂs third homer in two games with his own solo shot into the right field seats, one of five homers for the Reds. Dietrich and Yasiel Puig hoisted Senzel into the air after he touched home plate. Orioles 3, Rays 0Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

Cincinnati announced the move Saturday. Kemp hit .200 with one homer and Â“ve RBIs before Cincinnati placed him on the injured list April 23 with a broken left rib. Kemp was injured colliding with an outÂ“eld wall in San Diego. The 34-year-old was among four players acquired from Los Angeles in a seven-player trade in December along with outÂ“elder Yasiel Puig, inÂ“elder Kyle Farmer and left-hander Alex Wood. Kemp is in the Â“nal season of a $160 million, eight-year contract. The Reds also optioned OF Scott Schebler to Triple-A Louisville and recalled LHP Cody Reed from Louisville. Schebler was hitting .123 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 30 games and had lost his starting job to top prospect Nick Senzel, who made his major league debut Friday.Kemp releasedReds outfielder was injured after collision with wall PHILADELPHIA (AP) Â„ The Washington Nationals have placed left Â“elder Juan Soto on the 10-day injured list due to back spasms. The 20-year-old Soto missed three straight games entering SaturdayÂs contest against the Philadelphia Phillies. The team made the move, retroactive to May 1, when Soto didnÂt improve enough to play Saturday. He is eligible to return May 11. Soto, who is batting .248 with six homers and 22 RBIs, becomes the fourth Nationals opening day starter on the IL, joining Ryan Zimmerman (foot), Anthony Rendon (elbow) and Trea Turner (Â“nger). Washington recalled Andrew Stevenson from Triple-A to Â“ll SotoÂs roster spot.Soto placed on 10-day injured list PITTSBURGH (AP) Â„ Pittsburgh Pirates ace Jameson Taillon will be shut down for at least a month because of a strained right elbow. The team placed Taillon on the 10-day injured list Saturday after he complained of lingering pain following a victory over Texas on Wednesday. Taillon is 2-3 with a 4.10 ERA in seven starts. The 27-year-old said heÂs been dealing with discomfort in the right elbow Â„ which underwent reconstructive surgery in 2014 Â„ for much of the season but that the pain usually dissipates between starts. When it lingered on Friday, nearly 48 hours after facing the Rangers, he went to the team. The ligament repaired during his Tommy John surgery remains intact, but he will get a second opinion. Taillon is the second Pittsburgh starter to hit the injured list in the last week. Chris Archer is dealing with inÂ”ammation in his right thumb.PiratesÂ Taillon out with elbow

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, May 5, 2019By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESBALTIMORE Â„ Trust your stuff. ItÂs some of the most basic, and most repeated, advice given to young pitchers as they get into pro ball. And especially when they are trying to establish themselves not just as major-leaguers, but crossing that Â“nal hurdle to be successful at the highest level. ÂYou always hear ÂTrust your stuff,Â and I remember when I was younger I was like, ÂWhat does that even mean? ThatÂs just a dumb clich,ÂÂ Rays starter Tyler Glasnow was saying the other day. ÂBut it really means a lot now. ThatÂs something that a lot of guys in the big leagues eventually Â“gure out. ItÂs just really that conÂ“dence is the No. 1 thing in baseball.ÂÂ Right now, Glasnow has it all. The trust. The stuff. The conÂ“dence. And the success. He showed all of that, and more, again Friday in another dazzling performance, leading the Rays to a 7-0 win over the Orioles, and becoming the Â“rst six-game winner in the majors. He had some help, of course, with a check-swing double by Tommy Pham giving the Rays a Â“rst-inning lead and a three-run homer by catcher Mike Zunino, snapping an 0-for-17, created a margin they expanded in improving to 21-11. But Glasnow, who on Thursday was named the American League Pitcher of the Month, was the story, dominating from the start in working seven sterling innings. He improved his record to a majors-best 6-0 and lowered his ERA to an AL-leading 1.47. Mixing a fastball nudging triple digits, a biting curve and few more of his new-toy changeups, Glasnow struck out the side in the Â“rst and retired the Â“rst 11 Orioles before allowing the Â“rst of three single Â… an inÂ“eld bouncer, a blooper and one clean one. He struck out eight and walked none, throwing 62 of 92 pitches for strikes. ÂIt doesnÂt look,ÂÂ Rays manager Kevin Cash said, Âlike itÂs very much fun stepping in the batterÂs box against him right now.ÂÂ Apparently not. ÂGlasnow was absolutely disgusting,ÂÂ BaltimoreÂs Trey Mancini said. ÂDude threw a good game.ÂÂ That heÂs done well is one thing. ThatÂs heÂs done this well for this long, seven starts, all strong and with two or fewer runs allowed is something else. ÂI would put his stuff against anybodyÂs in the league and thatÂs not a hard statement to make because itÂs up there,ÂÂ Zunino said. ÂItÂs him continuing to learn, continuing to put that time in. He works extremely hard. And I think pitching now is coming to him and heÂs getting a good idea of what he wants to do and what he needs to do.ÂÂ GlasnowÂs breakout success in his Â“rst full season with the Rays after being acquired in July from Pittsburgh with outÂ“elder Austin Meadows and prospect Shane Baz for starter Chris Archer, has become something of a national story. But among the thousands of words being typed and tossed around, there is a somewhat simple explanation of the turnaround for a guy who the Pirates had essentially given up on and moved to the bullpen. The trade provided Glasnow, 25, a needed fresh start, and the chance to go back to being a starter. Talks with Blake Snell after the trade and Charlie Morton this spring led to adopting a more intense and aggressive mindset, and the discipline to maintain it. He became more physical, and thus less mechanical, in throwing his fastball really hard and snapping off his curveball. And he developed the conÂ“dence that what he was doing, especially in the strike zone, was good enough. ÂIÂd say that every big-leaguer needs to realize that at some point,ÂÂ Glasnow said. ÂJust the feeling of knowing you belong and the feeling of just believing in your stuff.ÂÂ Also, the ability on days when he isnÂt feeling it Âto go into your brain and convince yourself thatÂs real.ÂÂ Plus, he acknowledged after FridayÂs game, it helps to a little bit of attitude. ÂFrom the second I wake up I just try to radiate conÂ“dence and just get angry,ÂÂ he said. ÂAnd that usually helps me. I guess anger is the opposite of fear and it helps me get rid of my nerves and stay athletic.ÂÂ Pitching coach Kyle Snyder said young pitchers often battle to get to that point of believing in themselves, and simplifying things can help. ÂOver the last however many years weÂve probably gotten stuck focusing a little bit too munch on pitching especially when youÂre considering the stuff that this kid has,ÂÂ Snyder said. ÂAnd understanding that, you know what, we can go out there and try to take it out of the umpireÂs hands. Just force the swing, try to get guys down in the count Â… use your best fastball and get chase on your breaking ball out of the zone.ÂÂ And from that basic plan, has come signiÂ“cant success. ÂThe kidÂs extremely talented, he has arguably as good as stuff as anybody in baseball and heÂs putting it to work,ÂÂ Snyder said. Glasnow gets some gently worded questions about when his hot start will turn cool. Nice try. In his mind, this is the new normal. ÂIÂm just continuing to put my head down,ÂÂ he said. ÂKeep working. Just donÂt ever get content. And stay locked in.ÂÂAngry Glasnow making hitters uncomfortable RAYSConfidence, aggressive attitude have led pitcher to MLB-best 6-0 record, AL-best 1.47 ERA AP PHOTOTampa Bay Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow has excelled since being traded from the Pirates in a deal for Chris Archer last summer. By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„ Todd Bowles knows itÂs tough to slow down any player in the NFL if you canÂt catch him. ÂWe wanted more speed, but it had nothing to do from (studying) the Â“lms from last year,ÂŽ Bowles said. ÂWe just needed more speed.ÂŽ The key to the BucsÂ keeping pace in the NFC South standings may be how fast Bowles can improve a defense that allowed 29 points per game last season. Aside from Â“ve draft picks and a few free agents, the Bucs defensive coordinator will have to make due with whatÂs already on the roster. But Bowles and others on his staff insist the cupboard wasnÂt completely bare. ÂWhen you come in, you look at it, you see talent,ÂŽ linebackers coach Mike Caldwell said. ÂWeÂre not lacking talent. ThereÂs guys out there that have played and can make plays. So we just have to put them in the best position. ÂGo back to ToddÂs history, thatÂs what heÂs hung his hat on. To get guys in position to make plays and the defense understanding where youÂre going to be. WeÂre going to be a smart defense. WeÂre going to attack and play situational football and looking for good things.ÂŽ Like several of the BucsÂ assistants, Bowles played for Bucs coach Bruce Arians at Temple. All he has done is apply AriansÂ Âno risk it, no biscuit,ÂŽ philosophy to defense. There are several main tenets to BowlesÂ success. Bring pressure from every angle The best way to create mistakes and force turnovers is to make the opposing offense go faster than it has prepared. Bowles would love to be able to apply constant pressure to the quarterback just using the front four. But for a team like the Bucs who had 38 sacks, tying for 19th in the league, being average in that department wonÂt win games. So Bowles will often bring more than the other guys can block. A staple of his pressure package is the double A-gap blitz, where inside linebackers walk to the line of scrimmage to Â“ll the gaps between the guards and center. Linebacker Devin White, the BucsÂ No. 5 overall pick, had 5.5 career sacks at LSU and also could rush from the outside. Lavonte David has 21.5 career sacks and will be used in more blitz packages. ÂI got to play with him my last year in Â14,ÂŽ outside linebackers coach Larry Foote said of Bowles. ÂThen he was big time aggressive. We didnÂt have guys that really could get after the passer so he had to create some type of pressure so he was real inventive that year. Âƒ He puts it together off what we can do. HeÂs a thinker. HeÂs smart. HeÂs in that same mold of playing for Dick LeBeau. I was like, ÂSlow down coach. IÂm not as smart as you.Â But he understands it.ÂŽ By deploying a 3-4 defense, players such as Carl Nassib and Noah Spence, who would be defensive ends in a threepoint stance in a 4-3, will be stand-up edge rushers who can attack the quarterback or drop into coverage. For Spence, itÂs a career changer. In a 4-3, he was too small to play the edge except as a designated pass rusher and barely got any reps a year ago. Defensive backs will be part of the rush hour, too, especially the nickel cornerback and safeties. ÂSafeties in ToddÂs defense basically run the defense,ÂŽ safeties coach Nick Rapone said. ÂThey have to call out fronts but they do have to play multiple positions.ÂŽ Versatility Bowles values players who can do more than one thing. An edge rusher who can pressure the quarterback or drop into coverage. A linebacker who can blitz off the edge or use his speed to chase ball carriers down in the Â”at. A safety who can come down hill and thump running backs in the hole, blitz or play centerÂ“eld. ThatÂs what attracted the Bucs to Kentucky safety Mike Edwards, one of two third-round picks. Edwards has ball-hawking skills as evidenced by his 10 interceptions and 23 pass breakups. But he also can play nearly every position in the secondary. ÂWe thought he had the ability to do everything we wanted,ÂŽ Rapone said. ÂFirst of all, heÂs physical. Second of all he can blitz. Third of all, he can cover. Fourth of all, to the best of our knowledge, heÂs cerebral. And a safety in this scheme has to be cerebral.ÂŽ Just like Arians was attracted to the job because Jameis Winston played quarterback, Bowles needed to Â“nd the quarterback of his defense and did so with the selection of White. ÂItÂs important, because you really want a quarterback on every level of the defense,ÂŽ Bowles said. ÂUp front, in the middle and in the back, and having one in the middle Â„ not that Lavonte (David) wasnÂt, because he is and heÂs a heck of a player. So we have two in the middle right now and that makes me comfortable.ÂŽBowles will get Tampa Bay defense up to speedPressure on the passer, versatility and man-to-man coverage are keys to new 3-4 scheme BUCS By DIANA NEARHOSTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„ Even when he was on the ice, he was missing. The LightningÂs Â“rst-round playoff sweep demonstrated, among other things, Victor HedmanÂs importance. Tampa Bay wasnÂt the same without him. The defending Norris Trophy winner got hurt with four games remaining in the regular season. When Hedman did return for the playoffs, he didnÂt look like himself and was forced out of the lineup for Games 3 and 4. Who can say what would have happened if Hedman had been healthy. The Lightning went 5-2 without the defenseman when he injured his shoulder early in the season. But thereÂs no denying Tampa Bay is a better team with Hedman. ÂHe can make up for a ton of mistakes that happen,ÂŽ coach Jon Cooper said when Hedman got hurt. ÂYou throw every cliche in the book of Ânext guy upÂ or spread the minutes around, but itÂs a big loss for us.ÂŽ Hedman stands among the leagueÂs top defenseman. Even with a couple of injuries and a less Â”ashy season (Hedman was still one of the top-scoring defensemen, thought he didnÂt pop as much while the teamÂs forwards exploded), he again is a Â“nalist for defenseman of the year. The power play is the best statistical example of the weight HedmanÂs absence carried, going back to the regular season. He plays the point, essentially quarterbacking what was the best unit in the league for 82 games. In 12 games without him, the Lightning scored on 19 percent of its power plays. In the 70 games with him, that percentage bumped up to 30. The Lightning, and Hedman, intentionally never speciÂ“ed what his injury was. When a reporter asked about Âthat kind of injury,ÂŽ he came back with Âdo you know what my injury is?ÂŽ Signs point to a concussion. Hedman left the March 30 game after an inadvertent head butt to the chin from Carl Hagelin. Cooper stuck to the traditional Âupper-bodyÂŽ indication. When Hedman previously collided with an ofÂ“cial, also taking a helmet to the face, Cooper speciÂ“ed it was not a concussion when asked. This time, he repeated ÂitÂs an upper-body injury, thatÂs all I can say.ÂŽ Hedman has a history of concussions. He missed 13 games in the 2011-12 season and before that, a single game in 2009. When Hedman looked off in the Â“rst two games of the playoffs Â„ he got beat, turned the puck over and seemed almost lost Â„ some wondered if he had come back too soon. Then he missed the Â“nal two games. Cooper wouldnÂt say if the injuries were connected. ÂI wouldnÂt say itÂs related,ÂŽ Hedman said after the season was over. ÂI was cleared to play in the Â“rst two games, but I just wasnÂt good enough to keep going.ÂŽHedmanÂs health felt on playoff defense, power play TAMPA BAY TIMESLightning defenseman Victor Hedman wasnÂt himself during the postseason, after returning from an upper body injury.

Â„ Joel Dahmen held his own playing in the Â“nal group for the Â“rst time and wound up in a three-way tie for the lead with Jason Dufner and Max Homa on a stormy Saturday at the Wells Fargo Championship. Very much in the mix was Rory McIlroy, who was reminded at every turn that it was his 30th birthday. He had a 3-under 68 and was two shots behind. Storms moved in sooner than expected causing two delays, each lasting a little more than an hour and making a Â“rm Quail Hollow play slightly softer. Dahmen and Homa each dropped a shot over the last three holes for a 70. They were tied for the lead when DahmenÂs approach to the 16th was left of the green and came close to the water. He missed a 12-foot par attempt. Homa pushed his drive to the right on the 18th and was blocked by trees, played his second across the creek into the gallery and missed a 10-foot par putt. Dufner, the former PGA champion, atoned for back-to-back bogeys after the Â“rst storm delay with two straight birdies, and he gave himself chances down the stretch. He wound up with a 71. They were at 11-under 202. Pat Perez had a bogey-free 66 and was one shot behind. Six players were separated by three shots going into the Â“nal round, a group that includes Justin Rose, who bogeyed the 18th hole from a poor tee shot and shot 68. Dahmen, the cancer survivor who keeps a light perspective on golf, had never been in the top Â“ve starting a round on the weekend, and he had a chance to fade quickly when he was in the trees, misjudged a pitch that went into the bunker and made double bogey. After Â“ve holes, he already was four shots behind. He answered with a shot into 12 feet on the par-5 seventh for eagle, a wedge to 6 feet for birdie on the next hole and solid golf the rest of the way. ÂI thought I was going to be a lot more nervous in those opening holes and I wasnÂt,ÂŽ Dahmen said. ÂAfter I made double, then I got nervous because I didnÂt want to shoot myself out of this thing. I wanted to keep having fun and keep being in this tournament. Geno, my caddie, did a great job today, just kept it light.ÂŽ That would be Geno Bonnalie, who two years when McIlroy parted with his caddie put out a mock application for the job on social media that began by taking credit for guiding Dahmen to a tie for 68th in the RenoTahoe Open. Homa ended 30 holes without a bogey when he missed a 6-footer for par on the 11th hole, and he failed to convert two birdie chances before his bogey at the end. Now itÂs his turn to play in the Â“nal group on Sunday with Dufner. ÂAll you can ask for is to have a chance,ÂŽ Homa said. ÂI think I did that today. Obviously, we have a long 18 holes to go on a hard golf course, but IÂm proud of the round. I like how I played, I like my chances and I like where IÂm standing after three days.ÂŽ Dahmen will be in the penultimate group with Perez. With two players going for their Â“rst win, and Dufner still trying to emerge from a slump, McIlroy liked his position two shots behind. He heard ÂHappy BirthdayÂŽ at every turn, made his Â“rst birdie as a 30-yearold on hit the par-5 seventh hole and looked to be ready to make a move when he hit from a loose divot on the 12th fairway to just outside 10 feet. ThatÂs when the second horn sounded to stop play. McIlroy returned and ran his birdie putt 5 feet by the hole, missed the next one and lost ground with a bogey. That was his last mistake. He picked up birdies on the reachable 14th and the par-5 15th and is poised to join Tom Weiskopf as the only three-time winners at Quail Hollow. Weiskopf won the old Kemper Open three times on this course before the tournament moved to Washington. ÂThis golf course really rewards patience and rewards discipline,ÂŽ McIlroy said. ÂAnd I feel like I was both of those today.ÂŽ The top of the leaderboard looked similar to when the round started, except that McIlroy and Perez are a lot closer, and they all have a lot more company. Paul Casey made 15 pars and still managed to make up Â“ve shots on the lead, courtesy of a pair of eagles and on birdie. He was four shots back at 7-under 206, along with Seamus Power (69). Another shot behind was a group that include Sergio Garcia, who shot 30 on the front nine in the morning on his way to a 65, and Rickie Fowler, who had a 66. Fowler won his Â“rst PGA Tour title at Quail Hollow in 2012.Dahmen, Dufner, Homa tied at Wells Fargo PGA AP PHOTOJoel Dahmen lines up a putt on the second hole during the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.

Â„ Morgan Shepherd pushed his No. 89 Chevrolet for a few feet through the garage with all the might a 77-year-old NASCAR driver could muster before yielding to his crew. Pushing 80, Shepherd just might race long enough for his age to match his car number. ÂOh, yeah. That wonÂt be nothing,ÂŽ Shepherd said. Shepherd made his mark with a smaller, yet signiÂ“cant, number in 1990: 11. Shepherd posted a record 11 straight top-10 Â“nishes to open the season in the Cup series, driving for Hall of Fame car owner Bud Moore. Kyle Busch is nipping at ShepherdÂs milestone, going 10 for 10 headed into SundayÂs race at Dover International Speedway. Busch, the 2015 NASCAR champion, already has three wins and barely extended the streak last weekend when he Â“nished 10th at Talladega. ÂIt is kind of on our mind right now,ÂŽ Busch said. ÂGoing into every week, we want to win. That is what we strive to do every time we hit the track. We thought it would come to an end last week at Talladega and it was close. We were right on the verge, but we made it through another one.ÂŽ Busch is one of NASCARÂs greatest drivers and just hit 200 career wins across all three national series. That he would run off this kind of consistency is hardly a surprise for the Joe Gibbs Racing driver that is a threat for a checkered Â”ag each time he races. ShepherdÂs streak might be a bit of a surprise to a generation of fans who mostly know him as a senior citizen usually running at the back of the pack Shepherd won four times in his prime and was a top contender in 1990 to win the championship. But his top-10 run ended when a blown engine led to a 20th-place Â“nish at Sonoma. It took him six more races before he scored another top 10 and, though he won the season Â“nale at Atlanta, Â“nished Â“fth in the season standings. Shepherd was a spry 48 years old behind the wheel of the No. 15 Ford. ÂWe started blowing motors,ÂŽ Shepherd said. ÂI was running with Bud Moore then and we had a lot of good runs back then.ÂŽ He still races in the second-tier XÂ“nity Series and was rooting for Busch to at least match the mark. ÂHeÂs plenty capable,ÂŽ Shepherd said. ÂHeÂs still got to have a little luck here. I knew he was knocking on the door. At Raceway Park in Indianapolis, I was the only one that won three races. Kyle came along and he matched it. He just tied me. Hopefully, he just ties me here.ÂŽ Busch started the streak when he Â“nished second behind teammate Denny Hamlin in the Daytona 500. He has two thirds, a sixth, an eighth and two 10th-place Â“nishes to go with his wins during the streak. Busch has three career wins in 28 starts at Dover and Â“nished 35th in the trackÂs Â“rst race last season. He starts 22nd on Sunday.TOP OF THE CHARTSMartin Truex Jr. took a break from turning laps to spin some tunes on satellite radio. Truex, the 2017 NASCAR champion, recently played the hits and talked music as a guest DJ on Sirius XM RadioÂs 80s on 8 station Among the classic cuts, Truex put ÂThe ReÂ”exÂŽ by Duran Duran and the Bon Jovi smash ÂLivinÂ on a PrayerÂŽ on his playlist. Former MTV VJ Riki Rachtman tuned out TruexÂs tunes. ÂIs that what he picked,ÂŽ Rachtman asked incredulously of TruexÂs selections. ÂAnd I was such a fan of Truex. ThatÂs one of the worst Duran Duran songs. He didnÂt even pick a good Duran Duran song.ÂŽ Rachtman hosts the ÂCathouse HollywoodÂŽ podcast and has served for years as the host of DoverÂs race weekends Truex said the last-minute stint had him scrambling to Â“nd 1980s songs he liked. ÂI got a lot of fan response from it, a lot of people listen to that channel,ÂŽ he said. ÂAC/DC is probably my favorite of 80s.ÂŽHAIL TO THE CHAMPJoey Logano parked his No. 22 Ford on the White House lawn. Logano and his 2018 team were feted this week by President Donald Trump who called the championship run Âa heart-pounding, high-octane NASCAR action Â“nish .ÂŽ ÂIt was an honor to be able to go there and be able to see the inner workings of our country,ÂŽ Logano said. Team owner Roger Penske and NASCAR executive Mike Helton were among the dignitaries celebrated on the South Lawn. While some championship teams in other sports have declined TrumpÂs invitation for various reasons, Logano said he was honored to attend. ÂIt was a really neat moment to be standing on the stage with the President. Trying to make a speech with him looking over your shoulder was a little nerve-wracking,ÂŽ Logano said. ÂIt was maybe one of the coolest moments to walk up and see your car in front of the White House. I had never even seen the White House in person, then you see your race car parked in front of it. ThatÂs a really cool picture.ÂŽBusch has new milestone in his sights at DoverKyle Busch set to equal Morgan ShepherdÂs streak of 11 top-10 finishes to start the season AP PHOTOKevin Harvick (left) and Kyle Busch talk before the start of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice, Saturday, at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del.
