A man who allegedly opened fire at the Celtic Ray will be allowed to hire his own private investigator for his defense. PAGE 1C GRAND ANNOUNCEMENT The grand marshals for the 2023 Englewood Labor Day parade was announced.PAGE 1DGHOSTBOATS HAUNT THE WATERSWhat happens when a vessel is abandoned at sea and becomes a derelict ship or a threat to other traffic?.PAGE 1CRECONSTRUCTING THE RAYMOND After Hurricane Ian took out Venice Theatre for now, the community, and many volunteers, teamed up to convert a nearby facility into a temporary theater.PAGE 1E By LAURA UNGARAP SCIENCE WRITERPhil Durst recalled clawing at his face after a chemical from a commercial dishwashing machine squirted into his eyes, causing the most indescribable pain Ive ever felt „ ever, ever, ever.Ž His left eye bore the brunt of the 2017 work accident, which stole his vision, left him unable to tolerate light and triggered four to “ ve cluster headaches a day. Then he underwent an experimental procedure that aims to treat severe injuries in one eye with stem cells from the other. I went from completely blind with debilitating headaches and pondering if I could go another day „ like really thinking I cant do this anymoreŽ to seeing well enough to drive and emerging from dark places literally and “ guratively, he said, choking up. The 51-year-old from Homewood, Alabama, was one of four patients to get stem cell transplants as part of the “ rst U.S. study to test the technique, which could someday help thousands. Though additional treatment is sometimes needed, experts say the stem cell transplant o ers hope to people with few if any other options. Results of the early-stage research were published Friday in the journal Science Advances, and a larger study is now underway. The procedure is designed to treat limbal stem cell de“ ciency,Ž a corneal disorder that can occur after chemical burns and other eye injuries. Patients without limbal cells, which are essential for replenishing and maintaining the corneas outermost layer, cant undergo corneal transplants that are commonly used to improve vision. Dr. Ula Jurkunas, an ophthalmologist at Mass Eye and Ear in Boston who was the principal investigator for the study, said the experimental technique involves taking a small biopsy of stem cells from the healthy eye, then expanding and growing them on a graft in a lab By ELAINE ALLENEMRICHSTAFF WRITER Its one of the toughest stories Misty LaPerriere shares with groups about the dangers of human tra cking. It can leave them gasping in disgust.LaPerriere is the national law enforcement liaison and trainer at Selah Freedom in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Selah Freedom is a faith-based nonpro“ t, anti-human-tra cking organization in Florida and the Midwest. Its mission is to end sex tra cking through awareness, prevention and outreach with residential and organizational consulting programs. LaPerriere worked hundreds of traf“ cking cases and learned many survivors stories. One of those stories, she said, is particularly heartbreaking.Ž In 2015, she spoke to a law enforcement o cer involved in the arrest of a man who tried to tra c his 4-year-old daughter on Craigslist. The ad read, Play with Daddies Little Girl,Ž promising a child younger than 10. He wrote he would give the child sleep meds.Ž The fee was $1,000 for two hours with his daughter, who might be too young for intercourse, but everything else is OK.Ž The 30-year-old father didnt know the client he agreed to meet through the ad was a Houston undercover o cer. At the hotel, the father checked for the cash and took the man into the bedroom. The little girl was naked and appeared to be drugged,Ž LaPerriere said. The father was arrested and sentenced to 60 years in prison. The mother said her ex wasnt really in the childs life. So when he asked if he could have the child for the day, she agreed to only give her to him alone for two hours.ŽExpert shares horrific stories of victims; signs to look for SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLENEMRICHMisty LaPerriere, trainer at Selah Freedom in Sarasota and Manatee counties, shows how many human tra cking cases were reported in the United States during a recent session in Venice.Human traffickingcases are heartbreakingStem cells from one eye show promise in healing injuries in other AP PHOTO/BUTCH DILL Phil Durst, who has undergone an experimental stem cell procedure with his eyes, sits for a portrait in Homewood, Ala., on Tuesday.

PAGE 4A SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comLaPerriere said victims are most often enslaved or sex tracked by a relative, boss, boyfriend/girlfriend or online friend. Theres a very low percentage that a person is abducted and used for sex tracking,Ž she said. Sex tracking is the fastest-growing criminal industry „ second only to drug tracking. A drug dealer has to replenish the supply, whereas a human can be used over and over every day for years.Ž LaPerriere recently taught a group of social service employees and nonpro“t volunteers in Venice at the South Sarasota United Way what to look for in human tracking victims, and how to help them. WHO ARE THE VICTIMS? Victims are sometimes a runaway who meets a dealer, trading drugs for sexual acts „ then the dealer grooms them to do whatever they say for a place to live. Others can be tracked through their jobs, online relationships or domestic situations. LaPerriere said she worked a case involving a vile and disgusting personŽ who tracked young boys. She worked with one of the victims, a 14-year-old who had little supervision. The boys parents were young. His father married a woman addicted to drugs who was a bit older than his teenage son. The teen played a game with his friends at a convenience store asking strangers for cigarettes,Ž she said. One day a guy bought him a pack of cigarettes and invited him to his farm. He was actually trusted to bring people to work out their probation hours on his farm. There were lots of other boys there.Ž Within the “rst week, the farmer gave the teen massive quantities of Xanax and Ambien and started doing all kinds of things with this teen.Ž It was heartbreaking,Ž she said. The “rst time I really got to hear the trauma he went through was when I was in the courtroom to support him. It was heavy. He got the trauma therapy and was able to stand up to help himself and other kids that were being tracked. I know of two suicides and a drug overdose because of that case.Ž All of the victims looked in the courtroom looked like the kiddo we were supporting,Ž she said. Some of them had sided with the farmer because he gave them a place to live. That is the heaviest human tracking Ive ever experienced. The tracker was sentenced to “ve life sentences.Ž After telling that story, LaPerriere challenged participants to change their language when thinking human tracking is female centric,Ž because its very hard for male victim to come forward when female victims are generally reported. They (males) already deal with toxic masculinity,Ž she said. Male victims tell us they should protect girls and that this shouldnt happen to men. So we have to be more inclusive with our language.Ž TRAFFICKING AWARENESS After the two-hour session, Cynthia Voortman, co-founder of On the Spot Aid serving Englewood, Venice and North Port, said she learned some valuable lessons. On the Spot Aid, a nonpro“t, is a street medicine outreach, providing the unhoused (homeless) assessments, treatments, education and provision of basic “rst aid supplies in public places. We had two cases of girls who were being tracked in Englewood,Ž Voortman said. The most challenging part for us if they can go from one end of Englewood where its Charlotte County and then to the other where it is Sarasota County. If the two agencies arent working together on this issue, it stays under the radar.Ž Voortman learned hospital and clinic workers, doctors, nurses and others may not be looking for signs of human tracking in patients. Its the one time a victim may be away from their abuser,Ž she said. Health care providers can ask questions.Ž LaPerriere explained a person who suers multiple sexually transmitted diseases, who cant recall their medical history or who abuse drugs or alcohol, could be victims of sex tracking. A lot of victims have neurological concentration and memory issues,Ž she said. We see malnutrition a lot of the girls that are out in the street. They have a lot of physical injuries. Their diet consists of chips and soda. We see a lot of head injuries with tracking victims because their hair can hide them, and its not so easy if they are punched in the face,Ž she said. Victims have cardiovascular problems, gastrointestinal and dental problems.Ž The impact of tracking can also cause psychological health issues, nightmares, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, suicide attempts and depression, she said. HELP IS AVAILABLE Selah Freedom oers educational awareness, training and volunteer opportunities. Some who conduct the training have graduated from the program, have a degree and are tracking survivors themselves. Through Selah Freedom, 87% of survivor graduatesŽ in the residential and outreach programs oered dont return to the lifeŽ of a human tracking victim. Not every survivor comes into our (Selah Freedom) safe house,Ž LaPerriere said. We have an outpatient program where they (survivors) do phases just like we do in the safe house. They get trauma therapy. Then we work on educational and job placement, budgeting, etc. But they dont necessarily have to go into our residential house for our outreach.Ž Selah Freedom provides outreach on the streets, in the jails through a sextrade support group, as well as case management, mentorship and a prostitution court diversion program to individuals who are victims of tracking. For more information on becoming a volunteer, helping with life skills or on human tracking, call 1-888-837-3363, email prevention@SelahFreedom. com or call the National Human Tracking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.

If the two agencies arent working together on this issue, it stays under the radar.ŽCynthia Voortman On the Spot Aidat Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. A couple of weeks later, theyre sent back to be transplanted into the injured eye. Durst was the “rst patient to undergo the procedure. The great part of it is that were using a patients own tissue,Ž not donor tissue the body might reject, Jurkunas said. She said this method is better than a dierent procedure that takes a very large piece of stem cells from a healthy eye for use on an injured eye „ but risks damaging the good eye. Both of Dursts eyes were hurt in the accident, which happened while the former chemical company manager was visiting a client having problems with the dishwashing machine. For six to eight months, his overall vision was so bad his wife or son had to lead him around. But his right eye was less injured than his left and could provide stem cells for the transplant. Jurkunas, who is also aliated with Harvard Medical School, said Dursts 2018 surgery was the culmination of almost two decades of research, so we felt immense happiness and excitement to “nally do it.Ž All patients in the study saw their cornea surfaces restored. Durst and another patient were then able to get transplants of arti“cial corneas, while two others reported much-improved vision with the stem cell transplant alone. A “fth patient didnt get the procedure because the stem cells werent able to adequately expand. At this point, Durst said the vision in his right eye is nearly perfect but the vision in his left eye is blurry; hes scheduled for a dierent procedure in September to address that. Jurkunas estimates about 1,000 people in the U.S. per year could potentially bene“t from this sort of stem cell transplant, which has also been studied in Japan. Theres de“nitely an unmet clinical need for this eort „ theres no question,Ž said Dr. Tueng Shen, an ophthalmology professor at the University of Washington who was not involved in the research. She added that doctors currently have no reliable source of cultivated limbal stem cells.CELLSFROM PAGE 1A adno=3898426-1 LASTDAY„TUESDAY,AUGUST22!Allstylesareselectedunlessotherwisenoted.Selectionvariesbysizeandstore.Previousmarkdownsmayhavebeentaken.

Glen Gilzean, the new administrator of Walt Disney Worlds governing district, cant continue to work in his new job and chair the Florida Commission on Ethics at the same time since Florida law prohibits public employees from serving as members on the commission, according to a legal opinion issued Thursday. The ethics commission is charged with setting the standards of conduct for public employees and public oceholders in Florida, and it investigates complaints of violations. Gilzean is an ally of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and was selected to the position in May by DeSantis appointees who took control of the governing districts board. The takeover was in retaliation for Disneys public opposition to the  Dont Say Gay Ž legislation championed by DeSantis and Republican lawmakers. Members on the ethics commission dont earn a salary. Gilzean earns an annual salary of $400,000 as the administrator of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District. Gilzean had asked the ethics commissions lawyer to issue an opinion on whether it was kosher to hold both positions. The district is a taxing district and a political subdivision of the state of Florida, making Gilzean a public employee, according to the opinion from Steven Zuilkowski, the commissions general counsel.Florida ethics commission chair cant work for Disney World governing districtNEWS BRIEF By IGNACIO MARTINEZ and JULIE WATSONASSOCIATED PRESSCABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico „ Hurricane Hilary churned o Mexicos Paci“c coast Friday as a powerful Category 4 storm threatening to unleash torrential rains on the mudslide-prone border city of Tijuana before heading into Southern California as the “rst tropical storm there in 84 years. Forecasters warned the storm could cause extreme ”ooding, mudslides and even tornadoes across the region. Hilary grew rapidly in strength early Friday before losing some steam in the afternoon, with sustained winds falling from 145 mph to 130 mph. Nevertheless, it was forecast to still be a hurricane when approaching Mexicos Baja California peninsula on Saturday night and a tropical storm when approaching Southern California on Sunday. Hilary was already disrupting life. Major League Baseball rescheduled three Sunday games in Southern California, moving them to Saturday as part of split-doubleheaders. The National Park Service closed Joshua Tree National Park and Mojave National Preserve to keep people from becoming stranded amid ”ooding. Cities across the region, including in Arizona, were oering sandbags to safeguard properties against ”oodwaters. No tropical storm has made landfall in Southern California since Sept. 25, 1939, according to the National Weather Service. The watch was posted for a wide swath of Southern California from the coast to interior mountains and deserts. The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned of potential threats to life and property. The latest forecast pointed to Hilary making landfall along a sparsely populated area of the Baja peninsula Sunday, about 200 miles south of the Paci“c port city of Ensenada. As it moves north, it could bring heavy rains to Tijuana. Mayor Montserrat Caballero Ramirez said the city was tracking the storm closely. The sprawling border metropolis of 1.9 million people is particularly at risk of landslides and ”ooding, in part because of its hilly terrain. Shacks are perched on clis with little vegetation to hold soil in place. In addition, dozens of people live under tarps on the streets and in canals in ”ood zones, including migrants who arrive daily from various parts of the world. The city was setting up four shelters in highrisk zones and warning residents in risky zones, Caballero Ramirez said. Mexico issued a tropical storm watch for parts of mainland Mexico and put 18,000 soldiers on alert. At midafternoon Friday, Hilary was centered about 325 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, near the southern tip of the Baja peninsula. It was moving northwest at 12 mph and was expected to turn more toward the north. Some Cabo San Lucas schools were being prepared as temporary shelters, said Flora Aguilar, a city ocial. In La Paz, the picturesque capital of Baja California Sur state on the Sea of Cortez, police patrolled closed beaches to keep swimmers out of the whipped-up surf. Schools were shut down in “ve municipalities. It was increasingly likely that Hilary would reach California early Monday while still at tropical storm strength, though widespread rain was expected to begin as early as Saturday, the National Weather Services San Diego oce said. Hurricane ocials said the storm could bring heavy rainfall to the southwestern United States, dumping 3 to 6 inches in places, with isolated amounts of up to 10 inches, in portions of southern California and southern Nevada.Rare tropical storm watch issued for CaliforniaPowerful Hurricane Hilary heads for Mexicos Baja AP PHOTO/DAMIAN DOVARGANES Seal Beach resident Tom Ostrom, walks past a home protected with sandbags on Friday in Seal Beach, Calif.

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 7A By AAMER MADHANI, DARLENE SUPERVILLE and MATTHEW LEEASSOCIATED PRESSCAMP DAVID, Md. „ President Joe Biden and the leaders of Japan and South Korea agreed Friday to expand security and economic ties at a historic summit at the U.S. presidential retreat of Camp David, cementing a new agreement with the allies that are on an increasingly tense ledge in relations with China and North Korea. Biden said the nations would establish a communications hotline to discuss responses to threats. He announced the agreements, including what the leaders termed the Camp David Principles,Ž at the close of his talks with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. Our countries are stronger and the world will be safer as we stand together. And I know this is a belief that all three share,Ž Biden said The purpose of our trilateral security cooperation is and will remain to promote and enhance peace and stability throughout the region,Ž the leaders said in a joint statement. Biden maintained, as have US, South Korean and Japanese ocials, that the summit was not about ChinaŽ but was focused on broader security issues. Yet, the leaders in their joint summit concluding statement noted Chinas dangerous and aggressiveŽ action in the South China Sea and said they strongly oppose any unilateral attempts to change the status quo in the waters of the Indo-Paci“c.Ž Yoon noted in particular the threat posed by North Korea, saying the three leaders had agreed to improve our joint response capabilities to North Koreas nuclear and missile threats, which have become sophisticated more than ever.Ž He said as the three appeared before reporters that today will be remembered as a historic day, where we established a “rm institutional basis and commitments to the trilateral partnership.Ž Japans Kishida said before the private talks that the fact that we, the three leaders, have got together in this way, I believe means that we are indeed making a new history as of today. The international community is at a turning point in history.Ž The visitors spoke in their home languages, their comments repeated by a translator. The U.S., Japan and South Korea agreed to a new duty to consultŽ security pledge committing them to speak with each other in the event of a security crisis or threat in the Paci“c. The pledge is intended to acknowledge that they share fundamentally interlinked security environmentsŽ and that a threat to one is a threat to all,Ž according to a senior Biden administration ocial. The ocial spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the announcement. Under the pledge, the three countries agree to consult, share information and align their messaging with each other in the face of a threat or crisis, the ocial said.US, Japan and South Korea agree to expand security ties at summit AP PHOTO/ANDREW HARNIKSouth Koreas President Yoon Suk Yeol, left, speaks Friday during a joint news conference with President Joe Biden, center, and Japans Prime Minister Fumio Kishida at Camp David, the presidential retreat, near Thurmont, Md. By LINDSAY WHITEHURSTASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Authorities are searching for a member of the Proud Boys extremist group who disappeared days before his sentencing in a U.S. Capitol riot case, where prosecutors are seeking more than a decade in prison, according to a warrant made public Friday. Christopher Worrell, 52, of Naples, Florida, was supposed to be sentenced Friday after being found guilty of spraying pepper spray gel on police ocers, as part of the mob storming the Capitol as Congress was certifying Joe Bidens presidential victory on Jan. 6, 2021. Prosecutors had asked a judge to sentence him to 14 years. The sentencing was canceled and a bench warrant for his arrest issued under seal on Tuesday, according to court records. The U.S. attorneys oce for Washington, D.C., encouraged the public to share any information about his whereabouts. Worrell had been on house arrest in Florida since his release from jail in Washington in November 2021, less than a month after a judge substantiated his civil-rights complaints about his treatment in the jail. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth found Worrells medical care for a broken hand had been delayed, and held D.C. jail ocials in contempt of court. His attorney William Shipley declined to comment. Phone numbers listed for Worrell and the woman named as his custodian during his house arrest were not functional. More than three dozen people charged in the Capitol siege have been identi“ed by federal authorities as leaders, members or associates of the Proud Boys, whose members describe it as a politically incorrect mens club for Western chauvinists.Ž Former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and three other members of the extremist group were convicted of seditious conspiracy in May.Proud Boy on house arrest in Jan. 6 case disappears ahead of sentencingWORRELL adno=3899194-1 € OLDCUTDIAMONDS€Wealsoprovidewrittenappraisalsfor insuranceatreasonableprices.347W.VENICEAVE€ISLANDOFVENICE488-2720ROLEXWATCHES HIGHESTPRICESPAID € ANTIQUEJEWELRY THURSDAYISFREEAPPRAISALDAY347W.VENICEAVE€ISLANDOFVENICE488-2720IFYOUAREINTERESTEDINSELLINGUNUSEDORUNWANTEDGOLD,JEWELRY,DIAMONDS,WATCHES,OR OBJECTSDART,SELLITTOUS.WEOFFERAFREECONSULATIONSERVICETOHELPYOUDETERMINEWHICH ITEMSAREOFVALUE.PERHAPSSEVERALHUNDREDSOFDOLLARS.€DIGNIFIEDPRIVATECONSULTATION €LOCALPEOPLEYOUCANTRUST €HIGHESTPRICESPAIDIMMEDIATELYWEBUYOLDFAMILYJEWELRY€DIAMONDPINS €GOLDWATCHES €PLATINUMJEWELRY €OLDCUTDIAMONDS €DINNERRINGS €POCKETWATCHES €CARTIER&TIFFANY €ANTIQUEJEWELRY €GOLDCOINS* *SPOTPRICEPAID+5%forU.S.& CAN.1OUNCE€Wealsoprovidewrittenappraisalsfor insuranceatreasonableprices. 17701MurdockCircle PortCharlotteRightNextto eTownCenterMall941-625-4493Monday-Saturday 10:00am-6:00pm 70% OFF EVERYTHING MUSTGO!

PAGE 8A SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By ISABELLA OMALLEY and JENNIFER MCDERMOTTASSOCIATED PRESSKim Cuevas-Reyes, a 38-year-old cellphone store owner, snuck into Lahaina last Friday to see the remnants of her home with her own eyes. She took backroads and walked. What she saw stunned her. When you step into the house, its like an inch or two of ash. There is nothing,Ž she said, adding that she hopes to stay and rebuild her home and destroyed business and is in touch with the insurance company. More than 3,000 buildings in Lahaina were damaged by “re, smoke or both. Insured property losses alone already total some $3.2 billion, according to Karen Clark & Company, a prominent disaster and risk modeling “rm. With a housing crisis that has priced out many Native Hawaiians as well as families that have been there for decades, concerns are rising that the state could become the latest example of climate gentri“cation,Ž when it becomes harder for local people to aord housing in safer areas after a climate-amped disaster. Its a term Jesse Keenan, an associate professor of sustainable real estate and urban planning at Tulane University School of Architecture, “rst started lecturing about in 2013 after he noticed changes in housing markets following extreme weather events. Jennifer Gray Thompson is CEO of After the Fire USA, a wild“re recovery and resiliency organization in the western U.S., and worked for Sonoma County during the destructive Tubbs Fire in October 2017. Thompson said Maui is one of the scariest opportunities for gentri“cationŽ that shes seen because of the very high land values and the intense level of trauma and the people who are unscrupulous who will come in to try to take advantage of that.Ž Thompson predicted potential developers and investors will research who has mortgages and said Maui residents should expect cold calls. You wont be able to go to a grocery store without a ”yer attached to your car,Ž she said. Hawaii Gov. Josh Green said Wednesday his state attorney general will draft a moratorium on the sale of damaged properties in Lahaina, to protect local landowners from being victimizedŽ by opportunistic buyers as Maui rebuilds. While one extreme weather event cannot be entirely blamed on climate change, experts say storms, “res and ”oods, which are becoming more damaging in a warming world, help make Hawaii one of the riskiest states in the country. Earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, which are not related to climate change, also add to this risk. According to an analysis of Federal Emergency Management Agency records by The Associated Press, there were as many federally declared disaster wild“res this month as in the 50 years between 1953 and 2003. Additionally, burned area in Hawaii increased more than “vefold since the 1980s, according to “gures from the University of Hawaii Manoa. Justin Tyndall, an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization, explained that Hawaii is the most expensive state to rent or own a home in the U.S. by a considerable marginŽ with a median price single family home on Maui exceeding $1 million. Even in the condominium market on Maui, the median price is close to $900,000, so theres really no aordable options throughout all out of the state,Ž he explained. Until now, when homeowners in Hawaii have considered climate change, Tyndall said, its been coastal erosion, sea level rise and hurricanes, mainly. Wild“re was something that was on peoples radars. ... But obviously the extensive damage, most people didnt predict,Ž he said. Fire needs to be taken more seriously now, he said. Maui has stringent aordable housing requirements for new multifamily construction, Tyndall said. But the practical eect has been that very little housing gets built. So new supply is low, both for aordable housing and rentals at market rate, which just makes housing more expensive for everyone,Ž he said. Tyndall said the Native Hawaiian community has been hit the hardest by the housing crisis and there has been a huge exodusŽ due to this lack of aordable housing.Concerns over climate gentrification rise after Maui fires AP FILE PHOTO/RICK BOWMERWildre wreckage is seen Thursday in Lahaina, Hawaii.

Once I knew how to read, I began reading Jim Murray. Even in the middle of the country, the Los Angeles Times sports columnist was a weekly staple. There was good reason for that: The middle of the country was often the target of Murrays unique brand of satire and witticism. How good was Murray? He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1990, becoming just the fourth sports writer in history to do so, and the “ rst who didnt work for the New York Times, which ironically no longer has a sports department. How did Murray get so good? Thats a fun story. Murray came to sports from a unique direction. He was the Hollywood reporter for Time and Life magazines. When the owner of those magazines decided to start up an o ering he called Sports Illustrated , Murray moved over to that publication while continuing to cover Hollywood. Eventually, he shifted gears entirely and joined the L.A. Times as a sports columnist. It took him a little while to “ nd his voice, if you can believe that. But “ nd it he did, and that moment can be traced to a motel room in Cincinnati during the summer of 1961. As told in Ted Geltners biography, Last King of the Sports Page , Murray had followed the Dodgers on a two-week road trip, where they went for competing for “ rst place to fending o a drop to third. After eight consecutive losses, the team pulled into Cincinnati, where rain greeted it. The Dodgers were at each others throats over the slide and everyone was in a foul mood, including Murray. Worse, Murray felt as if he had exhausted all he had to say about the teams downturn. The game on Aug. 26, 1961 was rained out, but sitting in his motel room looking out at a rainy Cincinnati, Murray still had to come up with 25 inches to meet the Times deadline, which was just a few hours away. It was then that Murray recalled the advice of a past editor: Son, the best stories are ” oating right by your front door if youll only look out there.Ž By PATRICK OBLEYSPORTS EDITORPUNTA GORDA … By the end of Friday nights Kicko Classic, Charlotte High freshman quarterback Logan Flaherty had stats that would have made Nuke Laloosh proud. Like the “ ctional Bull Durham “ reballer who set new Carolina League records for walks and strikeouts, the Tarpons new signal-caller had himself a rollercoaster ride of an outing, ultimately ” ashing his game-breaking ability in a 41-17 Charlotte win against visiting Mariner. Coming into the season, Charlotte head coach Cory Mentzer knew he would be throwing Flaherty into the deep end as the very rare Tarpon starting freshman, but “ gured his talent would win out, eventually. PREP FOOTBALL By CHUCK BALLAROSPORTS WRITERFORT MYERS … The Port Charlotte High football team will be a very tough out this season if they play the way they did Friday in the Kicko Classic at Dunbar. The Pirates made few errors, played disciplined football and got their running game going early as they rolled to a 33-14 victory over the Tigers. There are some things they need to work on, such as special teams, but with the two-headed monster of Edd Guerrier and Ike Perry in the back“ eld and their ultra-fast approach to the game, they will be tough to stop. Dunbar learned that. Perry rushed for two touchdowns, Guerrier two more and quarterback Eli Manley threw for a score to lead the Port Charlotte attack. Perry also set the Pirates up nicely by returning the opening kicko past mid“ eld. It took them 13 plays to score, with Guerrier punching it in from the one for a 7-0 lead. Dunbar brie” y took the lead midway through the “ rst quarter when four-star recruit Tawaski Adams took a line drive punt and raced 70 yards untouched to give the Tigers an 8-7 lead after the two-point conversion. After that, it was all Pirates. Perry went up the middle for a 40-yard touchdown to give them the lead for good at 13-8 after a missed two-pointer. Following a mu ed snap on a punt that gave Port Charlotte great “ eld position, Perry scored again from 10 yards out to make it 19-8. The Pirates then recovered a pooch kicko , after which Manley found Justice Becerril for a 41-yard catch and run to make it 26-8 at the half.Taking a moment to thank Old Blue Eye PATRICK OBLEYSports Editor SEE OBLEY , 5BCharlotte sinks MarinerYoung Tarpons overcome mistakes with big plays Charlottes Logan Flaherty attempt a pass against Mariner High School during Friday nights preseason game against Mariner.

PAGE 2B SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERChase Elliotts best shot at making the NASCAR playos appears to be now, at Watkins Glen. And hes the favorite. The 2020 Cup Series champion has two wins at the 14-turn road course in upstate New York. He also has seven career victories on NASCARs winding tracks, two more than any other active driver. Elliott and 35 others will take to the 2.45-mile, multi-elevational track Sunday for the series penultimate regular-season event. Thirteen drivers have clinched berths in the 16-driver postseason “eld, including former series champs Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. Two more past champions, Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski, have solid holds on two of the remaining three playo spots. Bubba Wallace and Daniel Suàrez are on the bubble and need a victory or help. Wallace leads Suàrez by 28 points. We just need to keep doing what we are doing,Ž Suárez said. Thats qualify well and earn stage points and get a good “nish. There is still a lot of racing left and we know we can do this.Ž Elliotts path is clearer: he must win to make the postseason for the eighth consecutive year. The Hendrick Motorsports star has two races remaining to get it done: in New York or next week at always-unpredictable Daytona International Speedway. Certainly dont want to have yourself in a position to have to win at Daytona, but thats a possibility at this point,Ž Elliott said. I feel way better about going to Watkins Glen than I do Daytona because there is more in my control going there versus a plate race.Ž NASCARs most popular driver missed six races early in the season after breaking his left leg snowboarding and was suspended for another. Those absences have him 19th in points, 80 behind the playo cutline. No one would be surprised to see him eke out a spot at the Glen. Elliott “nished in the top “ve in each of three road-course races he entered this season. He was “fth at Sonoma Raceway, third on the streets of Chicago and runner-up last week at Indianapolis. The Dawsonville, Georgia, native has the best average “nish in those events. Adding to his con“dence, his “rst Cup Series win came at the serpentine track in New Yorks Finger Lakes region. It will always be special because of that,Ž Elliott said. That was a day I will certainly never forget as a huge achievement in my career and a huge achievement for our team. We had been through some tough losses together and had a lot of really close calls. To “nally get over the hump there was a really big deal.Ž REGULAR-SEASON CHAMP? If Truex scores 56 or more points at the Glen, he would automatically clinch the title. The New Jersey native increased his points cushion over Denny Hamlin to 60 points following last weeks race at Indianapolis. For us, its business as usual, and these races are all important,Ž Truex said. BETTING FAVORITE Elliott is the betting favorite (plus-350 or 3.5-to-1) to win Sunday, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Hendrick teammate Larson (plus-500 or 5-1) is the second choice. Larson has won the last two races at Watkins Glen and will try to join Hall of Famers Mark Martin (1993-95) and Je Gordon (1997-99) as the only drivers to win three straight there. ROADS APLENTY The Glen is the “fth of six road courses on the 2023 Cup schedule. There have been four winners in as many races so far: Tyler Reddick (Circuit of The Americas), Truex (Sonoma), Shane van Gisbergen (Chicago) and Michael McDowell (Indianapolis). The next road course to navigate comes in the second round of the playos at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval in October.NASCARElliott banking on road-course success to make playoffs ASSOCIATED PRESSChase Elliott looks on before a race on Aug. 6 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. MLB By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESANAHEIM, Calif. „ Osleivis Basabe got the same story as everyone else, that he was being called up for just Sundays game. The Rays, who hadnt been carrying a backup shortstop, saw a chance „ with an open roster spot between a series of moves involving pitchers „ to get Wander Franco a day o and take a quick look at Basabe, who had impressively played his way into prospect status. Then the plan changed. A series of social media posts alleging Franco had an inappropriate relationship with a minor led to him being placed on the restricted list for at least a week, as well as being investigated by Major League Baseball and authorities in his native Dominican Republic. And Basabe, a 22-year-old playing well in his “rst season at Triple-A, was thrust into the lineup as the starting shortstop in Francos absence. And he is not fazed at all by the challenge. Im prepared mentally pretty well,Ž he said, via team interpreter Manny Navarro. Im ready for anything the manager calls on me to do.Ž What the Rays want Basabe to do is continue swinging his bat aggressively and hitting the ball hard against the higher level of pitching and make the plays he can at shortstop „ knowing he doesnt have Francos range and that his work there is still in progress as he has split time at second and third base. Osleivis is a good player,Ž Rays baseball operations president Erik Neander said. He doesnt have a whole lot (of experience) underneath him, but weve never been afraid to go with an internal option with little underneath them if they show they can handle it. So well give him that shot.Ž That Basabe isnt overwhelmed or ev en not ably nervous about the situation isnt a surprise. Growing up in the small northern Venezuelan town of Bobures, Basabe was immersed in the game, which is something of a family business. Basabes father (also named Osleivis, pronounced oh-SLAYveece) and grandfather both played professionally at some level. Basabes younger brother, Edgar, is an out“elder playing rookie ball in the Rangers organization. A handful of cousins have played in the minors and a couple in the majors. Luis Alexander Basabe played with the Giants in 2020, and Luis Matos was with them this season, unfortunately sent back to Triple-A before Mondays game, when they could have faced o. (Instead theyll have to settle for the annual family reunion game in December.) We all play baseball,Ž Basabe said. And were all really close.Ž Basabe has shown not only that he can perform well, but also play the game right. When he was “rst signed at 17 by the Rangers for $550,000 (with extra international bonus money they had gotten for an unsuccessful pursuit of Shohei Ohtani), Texas ocials noted Basabe, liked others pursued by Latin American scouting director Ra“c Saab, had a knack for the nuances of the game. The Rays, who acquired him and two other minor leaguers in a December 2020 trade for Nate Lowe (and two minor leaguers), saw that as well. Hes certainly talented,Ž said former Rangers baseball operations chief Jon Daniels, but its more about the skill and feel for the game than it is about kind of ”ashy tools that are going to jump o the page.Ž Now a senior advisor for the Rays, Daniels said he hears similar things from Tampa Bay ocials, plus about how he is a coaches favorite and a common sta pick to end up having a long big league career. The thing that stands out to me is that he plays with his genuine energy and enthusiasm that I think helps teams in little ways,Ž Daniels said. When the teams talked about the trade, catcher/ out“elder Heriberto Hernandez (playing this year at Double-A Montgomery) was the Rays prime target, with Basabe among a group of others they wanted. He wasnt an easy guy to put in (the deal),Ž Daniels said. I think that the people that knew him the best, the international scouts and some of our coaches at the lower levels that had been around him day to day, they were not too happy about it just because they knew the quality of person and what he was capable of.Ž When Basabe got word of the trade, he also wasnt happy, as his three years at the low end of the Texas system was all he knew. I just wanted to block everybody out for like two days,Ž he said. I told my mom, dont answer the phone. I turned my phone o. I just wanted to kind of be alone, having moved up with the Rangers. But Im thankful that Tampa has given me the chance to be in the organization.Ž The feeling is mutual, especially right now. Its not exactly the way we thought it would play out,Ž Neander said. But circumstances changed. He is with us. We think really highly of Osleivis. We think highly of him on both sides of the ball. And hes going to get a little bit of an opportunity here to play.ŽWith Franco out, Basabe not fazed to step in for Rays TAMPA BAY TIMESThe Tampa Bay Rays Osleivis Basabe, middle, runs home to score against the San Francisco Giants on Aug. 14.

PAGE 4B SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com COLLEGE FOOTBALL By ERIC OLSONAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERWith only a few Division I walk-on oers, John Matocha seriously considered giving up football after high school. He wasnt quite ready, though, and decided to pursue a small-school option that took him far from home. It was a good decision. He enters his fourth season as Colorado Mines starting quarterback and is bidding to win a second straight Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in Division II. Last year, Matocha passed for a nation-leading 4,778 yards and 52 touchdowns and led the Orediggers to 13 straight wins and the national championship game following an 0-2 start. Mines brings back 18 starters and begins the season ranked a program-best No. 2 behind Ferris State, the team that beat the Orediggers in the title game. Matocha grew up in Magnolia, Texas, and was named to the Greater Houston “rst team after putting up huge numbers as a high school senior. But he didnt “t the mold of a major-college quarterback. Im not the most impressive-looking guy „ 5-11, 180, not very strong, not very fast,Ž Matocha said. Im not a big measurables guy. My 40-yard dash isnt impressive, verticle jump isnt impressive. But when I get into a game,Ž he added, I can play football.Ž He got a few invitations from Group of Five schools to walk on; Mines was the only school to oer a scholarship, and it was a partial. DB ADAM DEJONG, DAKOTA WESLEYAN SOUTH DAKOTA The 5-11, 210-pound senior from Watertown, South Dakota, was an NAIA “rst-team AllAmerican and led the nation with seven interceptions. He tied the school record with three interceptions against Briar Cli, returning two of them for touchdowns. CB MICHAEL BROWN, UWRIVER FALLS WISCONSIN The 6-1, 190-pound junior from Victoria, Minnesota, tied for the Division III lead with eight interceptions and was a “rst-team All-American. His late interceptions preserved narrow wins over UW-Oshkosh and UW-Stout, and he ran one back for a touchdown against UW-Whitewater. WR DEANGELO HARDY, NORTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS The 6-1, 202-pound senior from Lake Villa, Illinois, ranked second in Division III with 20 touchdowns and “fth with 1,198 receiving yards. The “rst-team All-American set the school record for longest reception when he caught a 94-yard TD pass in the unbeaten Cardinals national championship game win over Mount Union. DL HECTOR JOHNSON, ENDICOTT MASSACHUSETTS The 6-1, 225-pound junior from Worcester, Massachusetts, was Commonwealth Coast Conference defensive player of the year after recording 14.5 sacks, the most of any returning Division III player. He “nished with 21.5 tackles for loss and he blocked a punt that he ran back 78 yards for a touchdown. OL ZACH SIBILA, MARIAN INDIANA The right tackle from Zionsville, Indiana, did not allow a sack in 2022 while earning NAIA “rst-team All-America honors. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound senior was part of a line that helped Marian rank in the top 25 in total oense, rushing and rushing touchdowns.BASKETBALL: WORLD CUP By TIM REYNOLDSAP BASKETBALL WRITERABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates „ A fast start was all that USA Basketball needed to remain unbeaten as it keeps moving closer to the World Cup. Anthony Edwards scored 21 points, Cam Johnson added 13 and the U.S. never trailed Friday in a 108-86 win over Greece in a tune-up game. Austin Reaves and Jaren Jackson Jr. each had 11 for the U.S., which improved to 4-0 in its “ve-game exhibition season before ”ying to the Philippines next week to start World Cup play. The Americans had all 12 players score, and Mikal Bridges and Bobby Portis each “nished with 10 points. I feel like we got it going pretty good,Ž Edwards said. Greece is playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo, the two-time NBA MVP for Milwaukee who is sidelined this summer while recovering from oseason knee surgery. Panagiotis Kalaitzakis and Nikos Rogkavopoulos each scored 12 for Greece. Thomas Walkup and Georgios Papagiannis added 11 apiece. These games, these friendlies, theyre glori“ed practices,Ž Walkup said. Thats what they are. Of course you want to win, but we want to come out here to compete, get better, “x things.Ž Greece, even without Antetokounmpo, “gures to be the top competition for the U.S. when groupstage play starts at the World Cup next weekend. Greece is the No. 9 nation in the FIBA rankings; New Zealand is No. 26 and Jordan is No. 33. The top two “nishers in each group move to the second round. Not surprisingly, the race in Group C seems like it will be for second place after the way this exhibition turned out. The Americans „ just as they did at times in their “rst three exhibitions against Puerto Rico, a Slovenia team playing without Luka Doncic and Spain „ looked dominant in some stretches. They had a double-digit lead midway through the “rst quarter, were up by 17 by the time the game was 9 minutes old and never seemed in any trouble.USA tops Greece, moves to 4-0 in tune-up gamesMatocha returns as one of the top small school players adno=3899272-1 1550EASTVENICEAVENUEINSIDEEYEASSOCIATESVENICE,FL34292 3105BOBCATVILLAGECENTERROADBOBCATVILLAGECENTERNORTHPORT,FL34288CALL941-926-6553 WWW.LUMINARYMEDICALGROUP.COM SC ANTHEQRCODE TOSELF-SCHEDULE YOURNEXT CONSULTATION Medical&Cosmetic DermatologySKINCANCERSCREENINGS MOHSSURGERY ACNETREATMENT LASERSKINTREATMENT MICRONEEDLING BOTOX®COSMETIC DERMALFILLERS CHEMICALPEELSOurServices Scheduleyourconsultationtoday!CaryDunn,MD ElizabethReisinger,DO SamanthaBono,PA-C Lic.#CGC1514713 NFINTE (941)312-4455€www.in“nitesarasota.com In“nite Dreams...

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 5BMurray took another look at the dismal scene out his window, and this is what came next: I mean, people just dont have any appreciation for what us truth-seekers go through on one of these road trips for the honor and glory of baseball. For instance, you come into a city like Cincinnati at 3 oclock in the morning. Now, if you have any sense, you dont want to be in Cincinnati at all. Even in daylight, it doesnt look like a city. It looks like its in the midst of condemnation proceedings. If it was human, theyd bury it. That column would appear the following day in Los Angeles, where transplanted Cincinnatians would clip it out and send it back home. The response was legion. The Dodgers and Murray were soundly booed the next time they came through town and even when the Reds faced the Yankees in the World Series two months later, Reds fans could be spotted wearing buttons proclaiming, Murray for Idiot.Ž Of course, the Times brass knew they struck oil. So from that moment on, Murray was sent on the road as much as possible to assassinate town after town, sport after sport, personality after personality. His column went into syndication and began appearing in newspapers across the nation. Murrays one-liners are legendary. Perhaps you remember his opening line from an Indy 500 race: Gentlemen, start your consŽ Rick Reilly … a spiritual ospring of Murrays style … described Murray this way for Sports Illustrated during the 1980s: A Murray column is ƒ a corner of the sports section where a “ghter doesnt just get beaten up, he becomes sort of a complicated blood clot.Ž Where golfers are not athletes, theyre outdoor pool sharks.Ž And where Indy is not just a dangerous car race, its the run for the lilies.Ž In press boxes, Murray would mumble and fuss that he had no angle, sigh heavily and then, when he had “nished his column, no matter how good it was, he would always slide back in his chair and say, Well, fooled em again.Ž Some other great Murray one-liners: € (Rickey Henderson) has a strike zone the size of Hitlers heart.Ž € On UCLA Coach John Wooden: Hes so square, he was divisible by 4.Ž € Frank Bruno has a chin of such pure Waterford crystal; it gives rise to the old adage that people who live in glass jaws shouldnt throw punches. The biggest danger in “ghting Bruno is that you might get hit by ”ying glass.Ž € Sandys fastball was so fast, some batters would start to swing as he was on his way to the mound.Ž (on Sandy Koufax) When Murray won the Pulitzer, he said, I never thought you could win a Pulitzer just for quoting Tommy Lasorda correctly.Ž Murrays success, ultimately, came down to one thing in particular. In his 1993 autobiography, Murray said he always thought his primary job was to entertain the reader. Its amazing how much the following continues to apply to our modern times: They could “nd the score elsewhere. Basically, I “nd most people hate to be informed. ƒ People need to be amused, shocked, titillated or angered. But if you can amuse or shock or make them indignant enough, you can slip lots of information into your message. ƒ Satire is the best weapon in the writers arsenal to attack injustice. Frothing at the mouth turns the reader o. Angry voices are always assaulting us from all sides. The humorless we always have with us. And they always have their soapbox. The din of indignation gets deafening. I made a remarkable discovery: Sports is not only a universal language like music, but its a nice, safe topic of conversation. ƒ I took away from my childhood that love of sports and never lost it. ƒ I suppose I never grew up. Thats all right with me. Thats the nice thing about sports. You can be Peter Pan. Back to that little kid in Topeka, Kansas. The “rst Murray column I ever read did as much as anything to send me down the road I am on, whether I knew it at the time or not. It appeared in the Capital-Journal in July, 1979. The column was titled, If Youre Expecting OneLinersŽ and I have always had a copy of it nearby, during my journalism career. It begins: OK, bang the drum slowly, professor. Mue the cymbals. Kill the laugh track. You might say that Old Blue Eye is back. But thats as funny as this thing is going to get. ... I lost an old friend the other day. He was blueeyed, impish, he cried a lot with me, laughed a lot with me, saw a great many things with me. I dont know why he left me. Boredom, perhaps. Murray was writing about his left eye. During the week before the Super Bowl that previous January, the retina in that eye became detached. He missed the game while undergoing emergency surgery. Another four surgeries followed. None were successful. Since he was already dealing with a cataract in his right eye, the loss left Murray virtually blind for the remainder of his life and career. The column evolved into a touching obituary: I dont know why he had to go. I thought we were pals. I thought we did things together we enjoyed doing together. Sure, we cried together. There were things to cry about. But it was a long, good relationship, a happy one. ... He recorded the happy moments, the miracle of children, the beauty of a Paci“c sunset, snowcapped mountains, faces on Christmas morning. Murray recounted a list of things he wished he could see one more time, but noted how lucky he had been to have seen those things in the “rst place: Id like to see a sky full of stars, moonlight on the water, and yes, the tips of a royal ”ush peaking out as I fan out a poker hand, and yes, a straight two-foot putt. Come to think of it, Im lucky. I saw all of those things. I see them yet. OK, thats enough from me. Time to head out to Charlotte Highs football game against Mariner and make a few memories of my own. Thank you, Jim Murray, for being you. May this chuckle merchant of the paper chase (another Murray-ism) one day write something at least as good as the wadded-up mis“res at the bottom of your trash can. Email Obley at patrick. obley@yoursun.com and follow on Twitter: @PMOWriterOBLEYFROM PAGE 1B You know, he responded beautifully,Ž Mentzer said. Hes going to be incredible for us. But, you know, he and us, we still have a lot of work to do.Ž Flahertys “rst two ocial attempts were incompletions after an interception was wiped out by a penalty. He took a couple of bad sacks and he lost two fumbles. But ƒ In the third quarter with Charlotte trailing 17-14, Flaherty called his own number at the Mariner 28 and weaved his way through the Tritons defense for the go-ahead touchdown. In the fourth quarter with Charlotte leading 28-17, he escaped heavy pressure, breaking out of a Triton defenders grip before “nding Jayden Palmer running free for a 24-yard touchdown hookup. Just before and sandwiched between Flahertys touchdowns was Brady Hall doing his best Crash Davis impersonation. Like the savvy catcher whose job is to keep an excitable team on an even keel, it was Hall who provided the crucial spark after Charlotte fell behind, 17-8. The senior, playing in the secondary for the “rst time since his sophomore year, stepped in front of a Mariner pass and returned it 40 yards down the Charlotte sideline for a touchdown. After Flahertys “rst career score, Hall duplicated the feat, darting 40 yards down the Mariner sideline. Joshua Brown accounted for Charlottes other two scores on a pair of runs. A 5-yard run for Charlottes “rst touchdown and a 55-yard sprint for the games “nal tally. For a team that lost seven in a row to start the 2022 season, then won its “nal two games, it felt like a continuation of an upward arc … with an entirely dierent team that trotted as many as 10 sophomores onto the “eld while missing “ve starters. I dont like to talk about how young we are, but ƒ weve got a lot,Ž Mentzer said. But they are great kids with a lot of great heart. A lot of young guys had to step up and when its their “rst varsity action, youre gonna have rough patches, but we were able to regroup at halftime. I was proud of how they came back, and the seniors stepped up.Ž Key stats: Charlottes defense was suocating at times, owning the Tritons at all three levels. After allowing 55 yards in the “rst half, the Tarpons permitted just “ve in the second. The defense accounted for a safety, 13 tackles for loss, including several sacks, three fumbles and Halls two interceptions for touchdowns. ƒ Brown “nished with 90 yards on eight carries, thanks to his 55-yard score. Key plays: Halls “rst interception just after halftime pumped life back into a game that had been a bit of a mess while Mariner scratched out a 17-8 lead on a kicko return, a short “eld goal and blocked punt recovered in the end zone. Hall read Mariners motion perfectly, then followed quarterback Tanner Eveys eyes right into his “rst 40-yard interception return. ƒ Flahertys mad scramble to “nd Jayden Palmer put the game safely beyond Mariners reach. Quick hits: Charlotte kept its running game fairly vanilla for the preseason contest with Dunbar and Port Charlotte looming to open the season. Mentzer trotted out a large number of ball carriers, searching for strengths and weaknesses in the bunch. Dior Evans and JaVeontai Williams had some moments. ƒ Aarontae Wesley left the game with an injury, as did Charlottes long snapper, which explained why special teams took the hit on the blocked punt for a touchdown. ƒ Kickos were shaky most of the night, as well, for Charlotte, as its attempts to angle punts to the sideline often went too far, going out of bounds for a penalty. Quote: I grew up playing defense a lot. I played Pop Warner with all of them and this is the same kind of defense we played then. So it feels good to be back. I love defense. I feel like thats where Im most natural. Just ball-hawking.Ž … Brady Hall on his defensive performance.CHARLOTTEFROM PAGE 1B Dunbar came out fast to start the second half, with Austin Price hitting Travaris Schley on a 33-yard touchdown pass, but that was as close as Dunbar got, as Guerrier added another short TD run late in the third quarter. Port Charlotte forced three second half turnovers to help it seal the win. Coach Jordan Ingman said the team wasnt perfect, especially on special teams, where it allowed a punt return for a score, missed three “eld goals and an extra point. We have a top-four team in the state next Thursday. We played really hard and showed a lot of eort, but we have a lot of things to clean up, especially special teams. We learned a valuable lesson tonight. Key stats : Perry had 89 yards rushing, Guerrier rushed for 84 yards and Samuel Luther was a beast on the defensive interior, with two sacks and several tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Key plays: The mued snap by Dunbars punter gave the Pirates great “eld position, which led to the Manley to Becerril TD pass. Also, Ahmaddra Greene recovered a fumble in the third quarter to put a spike in any Tiger hopes for a comeback. Quick hits: Ingman was right. If Port Charlotte doesnt address its kicking game before Thursdays season opener at Bishop Verot, the Pirates could be in trouble. But they did play fairly disciplined football, especially in the “rst half when they built up a big lead. Eli Manley continues to impress at quarterback, throwing a tough-luck pick, but otherwise did a great job moving the team. Considering they play so fast on oense that its hard for spectators to keep up, thats saying something. Quote: We have a lot to get better at, but this was a “nal four team we played. Thats a good football team. We got to see a lot of athleticism tonight.Ž … Jordan Ingman, Port Charlotte head coach.LOADEDFROM PAGE 1B SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLPort Charlottes Cameron Becerril (6) carries against Dunbar on Friday at Dunbar High School.adno=3894847-1 7-yearExtendedWarranty*…A$735Value!FREE*Toqualify,consumersmustrequestaquote,purchase,installandactivatethegenerator withaparticipatingdealer.Callforafulllistoftermsandconditions.$0MONEYDOWN +LOWMONTHLY PAYMENTOPTIONSContactaGeneracdealerforfull termsandconditions CALLNOWBEFORETHENEXTPOWEROUTAGE(855)535-0945REQUESTAFREEQUOTE Whetheryouarehomeoraway,protectwhatmatters mostfromunexpectedpoweroutageswithaGenerac HomeStandbyGenerator.

PAGE 6B SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comGOLF By DOUG FERGUSONAP GOLF WRITEROLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. „ Max Homa was aware of the course record at Olympia Fields, and not just because of how well he was playing Friday in the BMW Championship. He happened to see a video board just as it ”ashed a message that Chris Kirk was challenging the course record of 63. Just randomly saw that today, and then I had to think about it,Ž Homa said. Homa broke the record even with two bogeys, making 10 birdies in his round of 8-under 62 that gave him a two-shot lead over Kirk (66) going into the weekend of the FedEx Cup postseason event that determines who goes to Tour Championship. Thats more an issue for Kirk than Homa, who already has two wins this season and is assured of being among the 30 who go to East Lake. Not so for Kirk, who delivered a heartwarming win at the Honda Classic but is on the bubble at No. 29 to reach the FedEx Cup “nale. Kirk never really challenged the course record, closing with “ve pars. He still played a solid round o the tee and from the fairway, a good recipe for an Olympia Fields course that has been drenched by rain and is slowly drying out. Today was one of those days where I shot 4 under but it certainly could have been lower than that with all the birdie looks that I had,Ž Kirk said. But I certainly would have taken it at the start of the day. Id gladly take two more of them.Ž Homa was at 10-under 130. British Open champion Brian Harman (68) and former U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick (67) were three shots behind. Fitzpatrick is No. 40 in the FedEx Cup and would advance with a great weekend. The group at 5-under 135 included Scottie Scheer (69) and Rory McIlroy, who made only one birdie in his round of 70. It also included Harris English and Justin Rose, who have plenty riding on the outcome this weekend. English narrowly got into the top 50 that made it to the BMW. Even in a tie for “fth going into the weekend, he still has work to do to crack the top 30 and go to East Lake. Last week was pr obably the most stressful because I know how key getting in the top 50 for next year was,Ž English said, alluding to the $20 million signature events he gets to play. I feel like this week is kind of a bonus, kind of playing with house money, and de“nitely more relaxed this week, and just kind of free wheeling it.Ž Homas round was three shots better than the next best on Friday, and there were no secrets to it. His putting has been strong all year. The key at Olympia Fields was being in the fairway to be able to attack pins instead of having to play toward the center of the green. Six of his 10 birdies were in the 12foot range or close, and the others were terribly longer. Homa knew he was on a roll when he reached the par-3 16th tee and realized he had birdied every hole but one on the back nine. And then were was the poor kid carrying the scoreboard with his group. Sometimes youre just zoning, but I knew I was making a lot,Ž Homa said. I heard the standard bearer say something about how hes getting tired because he had to change the numbers on our thing so much.Ž Tom Hoge had a 69, noteworthy because he had the longest day. Hoge was in the last group with Hideki Matsuyama, who withdrew before the “nal round with a bad back. Matsuyama was at No. 47 and will miss the Tour Championship for the “rst time on the PGA Tour. It also meant Hoge played as a single behind the other 48 players. Homa had a strong “nish in the FedEx Cup playos opener last week that nudged him in front of Xander Schauele to No. 6 in the Ryder Cup standings. This is the “nal week of qualifying and the top six earn automatic spots. He could lock that up this week, a goal of his all year. All that obviously takes some great golf. Youre playing against a lot of great players,Ž Homa said. It has been fun keeping that goal in mind. Because youre competing against the best Americans, which is a tall task.Ž Max Homa sets course record at Olympia FieldsNFL By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESFLORHAM PARK, N.J. „ Are you ready for this quarterback competition to be over, Baker May“eld? I am,Ž he said, smiling. Since arriving in Tampa Bay as a free agent in March and signing a oneyear, $4 million contract, the Heisman Trophy winner has been locked in a battle for the Bucs starting quarterback job with former Gators star Kyle Trask. Of course, competition is nothing new for the self-described late bloomer.Ž Furthermore, May“eld has only lost one of these battles. He took the job as a walk-on at both Texas Tech and Oklahoma, rallied the Browns to a victory in Week 4 of his rookie season when Tyrod Taylor suered a concussion, beat out Sam Darnold for the Panthers starting job last season and started four games with the Rams after being claimed o waivers last December. But if you ask him, yes, he hopes Saturdays preseason game against the Jets will be the last time he has to split “rstteam reps with Trask, who will start. Bucs coach Todd Bowles, however, refuses to give any timetable for naming a starting quarterback. When its time, well make it,Ž Bowles said of the decision. I dont have a set time to make it. Im comfortable where were at on both sides. Well make it and discuss it. See how the game goes and well see what the last game looks like.Ž May“eld outplayed Trask in the preseason opener, going 8 of 9 passing for 63 yards and a touchdown. Trask entered the game in the second quarter and completed 6 of 10 passes for 99 yards. But he was sacked three times and threw an interception. Barring a calamitous game against the Jets, May“eld could be named the starter as early as Sunday when Bowles has a video news conference scheduled. Trask will start against the Jets, followed by May“eld and No. 3 quarterback John Wolford. Few starters are expected to play against the Jets and May“eld said getting more reps with the “rst-team oense is important with the Sept. 10 regular-season opener at Minnesota fast approaching. You de“nitely want to be in there with the ones the whole time,Ž May“eld said. But luckily, being in Tampa, the skill guys have to rotate all the time. So even if youre with the No. 1 O-line, you might not have Mike (Evans) and Chris (Godwin). So you should make the most of your opportunities when it comes to routes on air. But then thats from a communication standpoint, its important even if Im not in to make sure Im hearing what theyre giving feedback to Kyle and even John and for everybody to be on the same page. ... Everybody has got to be on the same page no matter whos in. You want the same task driven, task-oriented mind.Ž Trask deserves an enormous amount of credit for closing the gap on May“eld, who has started 69 of the 72 games hes played in during “ve NFL seasons. Trask has only appeared in 2022s “nal regular-season game at Atlanta, attempting nine passes. He has improved his footwork and operated smoothly in Dave Canales system that puts the quarterback on the move with rollouts, bootlegs and waggles. May“eld believes the more reps he has with the starters on oense, the better hell be prepared for the regular season. It de“nitely does (help),Ž May“eld said. Now when it comes down to it, skills guys and your best players dont really play in the preseason anymore. For quarterbacks, you have to go through your process no matter who is in there. Making sure youre doing the right things, the right checks. Overcommunicating, too. It helps to have those game situations where youre mentally back in it. Its always dierent when you go to Week 1. Even if I was starting the whole camp or Kyle was starting the whole camp, you still dont get the same amount of reps you will in a game, with all the dierent situations, with turnovers or anything that can happen. Quick transitions. You just have to stay mentally ready for it.Ž To that end, the Bucs joint practice with the Jets was invaluable, and both he and Trask performed well against a tough defense. I love the joint practices,Ž May“eld said. One, because your guys get to go up against somebody else and youre not getting the same looks. Its just dierent competitions, dierent schemes and its always good for you to get live reps against other people and especially in the practices, theyre going to do more than they will to put on tape in the games. So you get to see dierent looks, a little more exotic and see how people handle it.Ž The Bucs are one of only a few teams still undecided about their Week 1 starter. The Panthers and Colts are going with rookies, Bryce Young and Anthony Richardson, respectively. The Texans still are undecided between rookie C.J. Stroud and Davis Mills. Then theres May“eld-Trask. Well see if Saturdays game decides it.Mayfield ready for Bucs QB battle to end TAMPA BAY TIMESKyle Trask, who will start Saturdays preseason game against the Jets, takes a snap during a practice in Tampa on Monday. By TOM CANAVANAP SPORTS WRITEREAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. „ Daniel Jones played very much like a $40 million man in his preseason debut, throwing a touchdown to cap a near-perfect performance in leading the New York Giants to a 21-19 victory over the Carolina Panthers and improving No. 1 overall draft pick Bryce Young on Friday. Jones, who signed a four-year, $160 million deal in March, completed 8 of 9 passes for 69 yards on his only series, capping it with a 4-yard touchdown strike to Daniel Bellinger. Exciting tight end Darren Waller had three catches on the drive for 30 yards and also had a drop for the only incompletion. Backup Tyrod Taylor threw a 33-yard TD pass to big-play rookie receiver Jalin Hyatt, while Eric Gray scored on a 9-yard run for New York (1-1). The Giants rested star running back Saquon Barkley for the second straight week. Young, who did little in his NFL debut last week against the Jets, showed ”ashes and put points on the board for the “rst time, taking the Panthers (0-2) on a 15-yard, 62-yard drive that Matthew Wright capped early in the second quarter with the “rst of his two “eld goals. Young played two series and was 3 of 6 for 35 yards. His best throw was a 15-yard toss to Jonathan Mingo on a play the former Alabama star read a blitz by Wink Martindales defense and found the hot receiver. With veteran Andy Dalton sidelined, third-string quarterback Matt Corral led the Panthers 66-yard drive that Raheem Blackshear capped with a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Fourth-string quarterback Jake Luton made things interesting with a 20-yard TD pass to Gary Jennings with 6:47 to play. NOTES: The Giants had 10 penalties for 82 yards. The Panthers had eight for 64. Both teams took advantage of fourthdown gambles to score touchdowns. Grays touchdown came after rookie lineman Jordan Riley stopped Spencer Brown on a fourth-and-1 from the Carolina 48. Lutons TD pass came after the Giants were stopped on a fourthand-1 just inside Carolina territory.Young shows flashes in Panthers loss to Giants AUGUST14 TH -21 ST Purchasea$100giftcardredeemableatSharkys, FinsandSnookHaven,receivethreebonuscertificates:$25TOFINS $15TOSHARKYS $10TOSNOOKHAVEN *Availableforpurchaseinpersonoronlineatsharkysonthepier.com.Bonuscertificatesvalidfrom 8/22/23-12/15/23andincludes$25toFins,$15toSharkysand$10toSnookHaven.Nosubstitutions allowed.Maximum10purchasesperperson.$100giftcardcannotbeuseddayofpurchase.

PAGE 8B SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comPREP FOOTBALL By VINNIE PORTELLSUN CORRESPONDENTENGLEWOOD … Landon Spanninger had to sit out all of last season, but the time away only seemed to make Lemon Bays senior running back hungry for more scores in Fridays night Kicko Classic against South Fort Myers. Spanninger played sparingly as Lemon Bay coach Don Southwell tried to avoid injury, but he still made his presence known. He touched the ball just 10 times but recorded 126 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns, including a 47-yard scoring reception that proved to be the game-winner in a 31-24 back-and-forth win over the Wolfpack at Lemon Bay High School. But Spanninger is just one head of a three-headed attack alongside Joe Scott (11 rushes, 50 yards, TD) and Taron Sanders (7 rushes, 99 yards, TD) for the Mantas. Theres a lot of guys who we need to get the ball to and in a Kicko Classic, we certainly dont want to run the tread o (Spanningers) tires,Ž Southwell said. South Fort Myers senior quarterback Chase Enguita didnt make it easy for Spanninger and Lemon Bay to pull away, though. The dual-threat quarterback was often on the run, but had a knack for turning scrambles into big plays. Enguita and junior running back Victor Jenkins (13 rushes, 54 yards, TD) were explosive at times, but penalties and turnovers … including a game-sealing interception from Enguita to Lemon Bay linebacker Caleb Hutcherson … were too much to overcome. Key stats: Spanninger was electric in his limited time with the ball in his hands. He converted three fourth downs (two for touchdowns) and eight of his 10 plays went for at least “ve yards as the “rst man struggled to bring him down. ... Drew Smith was eective in his singular drive at quarterback for Lemon Bay. Filling in for starting quarterback Lorenzo Mauceri (8-of-16 passing for 51 yards, INT), Smith completed his only pass of the game for 47 yards to Spanninger to go up, 3124, with 1:21 to play. ... Lemon Bays defensive line was impressive as well. The Mantas stopped Jenkins in the back“eld on seven rushes and sacked Enguita three times. Key plays: Smiths only pass of the game proved to be the dierence-maker and couldnt have come in a more challenging spot for a QB cold o the bench. We have two excellent quarterbacks, plain and simple,Ž Southwell said. My opportunity to play the other one was running out and I made the decision. That kid busts his butt. He came back with an injury and I wanted him to play tonight.Ž ... Hutcherson intercepting Enguita with under a minute to play was the icing on the cake … a highlight of a Lemon Bay secondary that had two interceptions (one by Amry Wells) and a couple of pass breakups, too. Quick hits: Spanninger is going to be worth the price of admission on Friday nights at Lemon Bay. The senior passed the eye test and he could have a special senior season this fall. ... The Mantas have two legit quarterbacks … at least judging o one throw. This could be one of the deepest Lemon Bay teams in years and it could pay o. ... Theres still room to grow for the Mantas. Turnovers, untimely penalties and lack of communication (Lemon Bay took its “nal timeout down, 21-18, with 9:56 to play) will have to be ironed out. ... Finally, the kicking game was in question for the Mantas all night. Lemon Bay converted one extra point and it nearly cost them the game. Finding a solution will be paramount to their success. Quote: There were some dark moments there where they kinda snatched the momentum away from us. Early in the season, you dont know how your teams going to react. Im proud of the fact that they held in there and made a play when we had to. We had a lot of lessons to learn and Im glad we learned some tonight with a win and not a loss.Ž … Southwell.Hes back: Spanninger spurs Mantas to win SUN PHOTOS BY TIM KERNLemon Bays Landon Spanninger (43) out runs the South Fort Myers defense to score a touchdown.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | YOURSUN.COMLocal News SUN By BARB RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ In existence for 30 years, one could naturally assume the Englewood Sports complex at 1300 South River Road was in a government use zoning district. That wasnt the case. Parks and Recreation sta learned di erently earlier this year when they unveiled plans to add four more pickleball courts at the site, discovering parts of the park were in two residentially zoned districts. In 7 minutes Thursday night, Sarasota County planning commissioners began to rectify the error by unanimously recommending to the Sarasota County Commission that the entire sports complex be designated as government use. When the park was being developed, only part of the property was zoned as government use with the residential zoning designations remaining on the rest. And when county commissioners adopted an amendment to the uniform development code regarding places of public assembly, it made many existing parks and natural areas nonconforming because they are not permitted in the residential zoning districts. Commissioners followed up on that action in 2022 by adopting a countywide rezone for parks to bring them into conformity. The Englewood Sports Complex was not included in that ordinance. Government use is the appropriate use,Ž Division Manager Kim Bereiter of park planning and development told the planning commissioners in summation of the request for a rezone. Was it overlooked?Ž Commissioner Colin Pember asked in the only question raised about the request.Rezoning clears way for more pickleball courtsEnglewood Sports Complex to get four additional outdoor courts A camper learns to return a volley during a pickleball session at Englewood Sports Complex.

Carroll said that in his order permitting the visit he had contemplated that any photos and videos would show only the premises. € Ruling that doctors who had recently seen Maya after a long lapse of time wouldnt be allowed to testify about their recent examinations of her because they occurred after the deadline he set. € Ruling that a Child Protection investigators note of a conversation with a social worker about yet another social worker saying she had a gut feelingŽ that Beata Kowalski might be suicidal is inadmissible hearsay unless an exception can be provided. € In keeping with a prior decision, ruling that the Kowalskis could present evidence that Dr. Sally Smith, who examined Maya as a Child Protection contractors employee, was an apparent agent of JHACH. € Armed another previous ruling that evidence regarding communications among the Kowalskis attorneys, medical experts and treating physicians would not be inadmissible as protected attorney work product. The attorneys can raise the matter again, however. Its uncertain at this point the extent to which Carroll will need to get involved in decisions on the admissibility of exhibits. JHACH attorney Howard Hunter said that more than 120 exhibits have been stipulated to among the lawyers but that his side still has more than 100 that need to be dealt with and hes still waiting for a revised list from Gary Anderson, the Kowalskis attorney. The most recent list Anderson provided showed more than 1,800 exhibits for the plaintis, Hunter said. If the list isnt shortened, he said, the case will move forward like turtles stampeding through peanut butter.Ž Anderson said his oce has been working 10 hours a day every day on the exhibit list and he expects to be able to whittle it down to about 400, though prob ably not fewer. All the attorneys know that trials usually turn on about 100 exhibits, he said. Carroll directed Anderson to provide the defense attorneys his revised list by 4 p.m. Tuesday and for them to meet and confer about it Wednesday afternoon. The next hearing in the case is on Tuesday, Aug. 29. Another hearing is set for Sept. 11 and Carroll has time available on Sept. 12, if needed to “nalize jury instructions.Rulings narrow issues in Maya lawsuitMuch more needs to be done before next months trial SCREENSHOTIn this screenshot from the Netix documentary, Take Care of Maya,Ž the Kowalski family is pictured, including Maya (bottom left), her dad, Jack, and her mother, Beata. 941-626-4296JimsGrabBars.com r e y arry r b ars Shower&Bathtub ServingCharlotte&SarasotaCountyfor29years!

PAGE 4C SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com STAFF REPORTSARASOTA „ Seed-containing tiles are Sarasota Memorial Hospitals newest tool in the treatment of some brain tumors. GammaTile therapy was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 to treat aggressive, recurrent brain tumors and in 2020 to include newly diagnosed malignant brain tumors, a news release says. Neurosurgeon Peter Mayer, M.D., and radiation oncologist Larry Silverman, members of SMHs Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute, have been providing the treatment since earlier this year, according to the release. SMH is the “rst hospital in southwest Florida to oer the treatment, which is only available at about 100 facilities in the country, the release says. The treatment may be appropriate for patients with gliomas, glioblastomas, meningiomas and brain metastases, though not all brain tumors. Particularly for patients with recurrent brain tumors who may not be able to tolerate more external beam radiation or chemotherapy, GammaTile oers a potentially life-prolonging, supplemental therapy to help prevent another recurrence,Ž Silverman said in the release. After removing as much of the tumor as safely possible, neurosurgeons implant one or more collagen tilesŽ about the size of a postage stamp at the tumor site to eliminate any residual cancer cells that might be hiding in surrounding tissue. Small radiation seedsŽ provide an immediate, targeted dose of radiation in a con“ned area, the release says, delivering about 50% of the therapeutic dose within the “rst 10 days following surgery and the rest within six weeks. The tile is insulated except for a small area through which the targeted dose is delivered. Later, it dissolves into surrounding tissue so it doesnt need surgery to remove it. Clinical trials of GammaTile in patients with recurring meningioma and brain metastases have shown nearly twice as many tumor-free months compared to prior treatments for patients with recurring brain tumors located in the same area, the release says.

According to the FWCs Derelict Vessel map, there are at least 20 derelict vessels in just Lemon Bay with plenty more littering the coast up to Venice and down into Charlotte Harbor. The map has not been recently updated, meaning there may be more ghost boats. Venice Sea Tows owner Craig Marcum is no stranger to these wooden apparitions and has some insight on how these situations may occur. Usually the most typical scenario is its an older boat that doesnt have much value, and the previous owner wants to get rid of it „ so they sell it for almost nothing and sometimes give it away,Ž Marcum said. In many situations, Marcum said, someone will buy these cheap, older boats solely for the purpose of living on them without fully understanding all of the factors that go into owning, living on and maintaining a boat. Usually the boat isnt running, or sometimes it just runs barely to move, but that person says Im just going to anchor it out here and just use it for a house,Ž He said. That boat will end up having some sort of serious issue.Ž Issues can include small leaks that gradually become a bigger problem when it storms. Or, Marcum noted, in many scenarios, a wind storm will push the boat into someones dock, seawall or other boats, causing damage. With a derelict boat, one thing thats common is that they never ever have insurance, so anything that happens is out-of-pocket for them,Ž Marcum said. Theyre going to get a citation, and they usually dont have the means to pay for it.Ž As the live-in boats continue to degrade and become derelict, the owners eventually abandon ship „ either from the amount of citations theyve received, repairs that have to be made, or because of an event that makes the boat unlivable. A police ocer, sheris deputy, or FWC ocer will see it, identify it, and sticker it,Ž He said. The sticker means they have 30 days to get this boat in compliance.Ž According to Marcum, requirements for a vessel include: € The vessel has to be ”oating. € There has to be a visible light on it so other boats dont run into it at night. € A functional marine sanitation device. € Must be able to start the vessels motor, travel one mile from shore and be able to return within 15 minutes. Thirty days will go by, and the person doesnt get the boat in compliance because they cant, dont know how to, or dont have the money,Ž Marcum said. Law enforcement will come back and check.Ž After three citations, the ocer will write up the boat and declare it a derelict vessel. He sends that report to his superiors in Tallahassee, and the state government will take possession of that boat,Ž He said. They then put out a bid request to contractors who deal in this kind of work.Ž The contractor with the lowest bid will be hired by the state to remove the derelict vessel and take it to a land“ll. By law it has to go to the land“ll,Ž Marcum said. We cant take it and re-sell it, but we can take parts o of it and repurpose them.Ž Marcum said the whole entirety of the process, at best, can take up to six months. However, there have been several instances where it takes longer due to an inability to “nd the correct registered owner of the boat because of an improper transfer of title from the previous owner to the next. Other instances, especially recently, are due to Hurricane Ian, which caused an increase in derelict boats. The FWC created an amnesty program that was used to help with the in”ux of derelict boats by allowing owners to voluntarily release ownership to the state without citations. The state is focusing a lot of their eorts on Fort Myers and Charlotte Harbor,Ž Marcum said. By the time you get up to Englewood and Venice, it almost seems like the state is saying well get to those when we get to those, but we got bigger problems in Fort Myers.Ž According to Marcum, theres hundreds of derelict boats around Fort Myers, while Englewood and Venice have only a few dozen. Theyre moving in the right direction with derelict boats, but the process takes so long that a lot of people feel like it doesnt work,Ž Marcum said. By the time someone like Sea Tow gets authorization to move the boat, things have changed.Ž Marcum said theyre constantly trying work on the program and revise it. Funding for the program comes mostly from taxpayers and from things like boating registration fees along with “shing license fees. Just like anything with state and federal government, it can take forever,Ž He said. The hurricane did not help.Ž Marcums advice for those interested in living on a boat? € Educate yourself on what you want to do. € Dont live on a boat thats not tied up to a dock at the marina. € Dont just throw down an anchor. € Have basic liability insurance, and this goes for all boaters. Venices Sea Tow has been operating since the 1980s. Marcum and his family became owners in 2015. They oer all sorts of boating services both for members and nonmembers which can include, battery jumps, gas re“lls, towing and marine advice to name a few. Venices Sea Tow services all the way from Boca Grande up to Osprey. Those who see a derelict boat can call local police or the FWC at 850-488-5600 who will investigate.BOATSFROM PAGE 1C SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LAWSONA beached and partially sunk sailboat on Englewood Beach, hugging the Sarasota and Charlotte county line.

PAGE 6C SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com OUR VIEWLabor Day alive, well in EnglewoodOUR POSITION: Those who stepped up to salvage a Labor Day celebration in Englewood deserve kudos for their initiative and hard work.For years, the annual Pioneer Days festival and parade have been something to look forward to in Englewood. The parade, Mayor for a Day contest, Little Miss Englewood Pageant, cardboard boa t races and festi val drew thousands to Dearborn Street to say goodbye to summer and enjoy a day with family and friends. But the past three years presented challenges that could not be overcome. A dedicated group that served as the Pioneer Days Committee had to reschedule the 2019 event because Hurricane Dorian was threatening our Gulf shore. Then, in 2020, COVID-19 restrictions forced organizers to cancel the event. And, in 2021 and 2022 construction on Pioneer Plaza and Dearborn Street made it nearly impossible to plan the event and the committee called o Pioneer Days. With all that behind them, committee members had high hopes for a great celebration this year. But, they said they couldnt come up with an aordable option for insurance which is needed to have a parade and an event of this type. For a while it looked like Pioneer Days would be called o for the fourth year in a row. Englewood Village Artist Colony member Sydney Martin would have none of that. Despite a lack of experience planning such an event, she rolled up her sleeves, picked up her cellphone and began to call for help and ideas how to salvage a Labor Day celebration. She faced the same challenges „ including insurance and permits „ but she was determined. And, the more she asked, the more help she received. A number of businesses in Englewood are chipping in to help and a number of volunteers have stepped up to oer whatever services they can. Just a couple of days ago, Martin got word that the permit was approved „ just a bit after she secured the needed insurance. The Sept. 4 celebration will include food vendors, live music, games, linedancing demonstrations and photo booths with props. There will also be a Mayor 4 the DayŽ competition. The main event „ a parade „ will include ”oats, classic cars, horses, the Lemon Bay High School Marching Manta Band and an honorary Grand Marshal. It wont be called Pioneer Days, however. Pioneer Days Committee chair Chris Phelps sent Sarasota County an email saying her group is not involved in the planning of this event or any celebration for Labor Day in Englewood. She said no other group is authorized to use the name Pioneer Days, the Cardboard Boat Race or the Little Miss Englewood Pageant. Phelps indicated her committee may reschedule those traditional events. We would have liked to see everyone on the same page „ working together to keep the tradition alive. The Pioneer Days Committee is „ as we said earlier „ a hard-working group that has been dedicated to keeping the Labor Day event alive. But the important thing to keep in mind is there will be a Labor Day celebration. You can come to Dearborn Street in Englewood and see a parade, listen to music, eat, dance and be merry. We applaud the eorts of Sydney Martin and her supporters for having the courage, initiative and energy to make it all happen. Nothing came easy for them, but the Englewood community saw an opportunity to come together and they did so with enthusiasm. Were proud Labor Day will still be special in Englewood. Talk of converting to EV is insanityE:Gasoline is accused of helping to destroy Earth, but is that true? New technology has more than halved emissions and is increasingly cleaner. Ah, but EVs are cleaner still „ and cheaper. Really? First EVs cost a fortune. Their range is less than gas vehicles. They are powered by the grid which is strained to the limit and breaking now. Soon well have to build an entirely new grid at a cost of „ conservatively „ one and a half trillion just to accommodate the EVs. And, what powers the grid? No, wind and solar wont even come close. But, EVs are still cleaner. They are? Know anything about batteries? Theyre the most polluting things on earth. Honestly, check it out. So, lets produce hundreds of millions of the largest batteries ever made, just dont dump them when theyre dead in any country or even ocean near me. Oh, and the rare earths that go into them: we are raping and ravaging the world to get them (Africa, Asia, South America). Yep, those damn internal combustion cars „ which by the way dont have to be powered by gasoline. They can run just “ne on alcohol, methane, or hydrogen. If they are hydrogen powered, guess what comes out of the tail pipe? Why its water vapor and oxygen. Lets get rid of em, right? Do you know what insanity is? J W North PortSmart growth not working, vote KuharskiE:So, hows Smart Growth been working for Punta Gorda? The empty “elds in the middle of town is the perfect poster child for how Smart Growth has been applied. Im embarrassed to show downtown to my guests. In the name of protecting our unique small-town charm,Ž weve done nothing for nearly 20 years. Weve elected generations of City Council members who cower in the corner and wring their hands for fear of oending a vocal minority group of people who “ght any type of development. The small-town charmŽ were protecting isnt so unique, you can “nd it in many small, tired, uninteresting Florida towns. Potential is another story. We have tons of it! The introduction of Sunseeker to the area presents opportunities to spur developer interests. We should strive to make Fishermens Village and downtown the daytime destination for Sunseeker guests. Its time for our city leadership to roll up their sleeves and get serious about creating something in our marketplace instead of stoning every developer who comes courting. TEAM Punta Gorda did this successfully after Hurricane Charley with the development of the Sun Loft building. We need to keep Mark Kuharski on the City Council to “nally get something done. R W Punta GordaDaily Sun sta is super talentedE:Just a brief note to tell you how very fortunate you are to have talented people on your newspaper crew. Like Linda Gillis, who said it best last weekend regarding the Arts section: Its the place to be every weekend.Ž Then there is John Hackworth who always has a great commentary piece. Who could leave out the best sports editor in the business , Pat Obley with his coverage, photo shots and meaningful prose to bring a laugh or a tear to your eye. By the way someone needs to submit Pats picture of the wrestler who, after winning at state, picked his coach up and put him on his shoulders. It is a Pulitzer Prize winner. Refreshing reads after all the troubles and bad news. S H Punta GordaDemocrats have big advantage in 24E:Democrats are spending billions of tax dollars trying to spur green energy in an eort to capture young idealistic voters. Republicans small government and low taxes holds little appeal for the environmentally social conscience of young voters. China is the number one polluter but neither Democrats or Republicans dare go there as it would upset Walls Streets Chinese investments gravy train. The Democratic party is composed of blocks of voters. Blacks, Hispanics, LGBT community and intellectuals all of whom get a giddy feeling whenever Democrats tell them they feel their pain. No pain no gain. Martin Luther Kings advocacy of non-violence has no appeal for emotional, irrational, radical Democrats. Fear is primordial, fear is the strongest of emotions and its corollary oshoot is hate. Roosevelt said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. History reveals hate is a most eective political tool. Democrats have polarized black against white, gays against straights and socialist against capitalist. For 2024, the Democratic arsenal is locked and loaded. That arsenal consists of a ton of money, propagandist social media, ballot harvesting and mail-in ballots galore and the FBI and DOJ in their back pockets. How can they fail? Pity the poor cumbersome inept elephant who lacks party organization and party discipline. The only thing Republicans have going is law and order which doesnt much excite a public who needs entertainment. I cant help but thinking that in the “ve critical swing states Republicans will have a snowballs chance in hell. L B Punta GordaMedia exaggerates the suicide problemE:I was reading Mondays (Aug. 14) paper and discovered another article Suicide in Slow MotionŽ that represents what I think is wrong with the news media in general. This article makes it seem that this is a great problem. The numbers given, in proportion to the number of people in our country represent 0.00016% of that population. Suicide is horrendous, but, misrepresenting the magnitude of the problem is also horrendous. Make the news more useful by injecting truth into it and people will not run around afraid of everything in our country. More lives are lost in terms of murder in places like Chicago, New York, Detroit, Los Angeles and other big cities than anywhere else. Maybe that is what your focus should be. G H North PortWe must resume Child Tax CreditE:Two years ago, we learned how to end child poverty. With the expanded Child Tax Credit, which was sent in monthly payments, we cut child poverty by more than one-third. Struggling families used their 2021 CTC payments to pay bills, buy food, and better care for their children. But after six months, we gave up. A few hard-hearted politicians in Washington refused to extend the CTC monthly payments. According to a new CLASP report based on surveys of parents who received the CTC payments, over 40% faced increased “nancial stress when the payments stopped, including diculty in paying rent and buying food. In 2021, we were on the road to ending child poverty. Its time to “nish the job. Its time for Congress to stop paying lip-service and actually show they care about Americas children. I demand our representatives and senators expand the CTC to families with low-income this year and reject any tax legislation that doesnt.

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 7COPINIONSAs the public safety director and chief of the Charlotte County Fire and EMS Department, my foremost responsibility is to safeguard the welfare and security of our community. Over the years, our county has undergone substantial residential growth and commercial development. This trajectory is poised to intensify as we see new proposals for development and our population steadily increases. To assess how the standard of service we provide will be aected by this growth, we commissioned a standards of coverage study in 2022. We needed to take a deep dive into our operation and see how we are meeting service demands and how we need to adjust as that demand grows. Charlotte County Fire and EMS, funded through ad-valorem taxes and the Fire MSBU assessments, is an all-hazards response agency comprised of hazardous materials, technical rescue, marine operations and airport rescue and “re “ghting. Our departmental divisions include operations (emergency response), “re prevention, training, support services and emergency vehicle maintenance. These divisions are made up of 22 civilian members and 277 certi“ed “re“ghters and paramedics, which operate out of 17 stations throughout the county. The last “ve years have seen more than an 18% increase in demand for service, with a call volume of nearly 38,000 calls in 2022. In that “ve years we have increased our units by one ambulance, but is this enough? That is where the standards of coverage study comes in, providing an unbiased, data-driven analysis. The study de“ned three speci“c areas where we are currently and helped us strategically plan: call concurrency, unit hour utilization and peak call times. Call concurrency refers to the ability to simultaneously handle multiple emergency calls within a speci“c zone and is expressed as the percentage of time overlapping emergency calls come in. The three highest results were 49%, 35% and 32%. During these peak percentages, we have been able to meet the demand by allocating resources from other zones and prioritizing responses in areas where additional units are not available, but continued growth requires a more substantial approach. Next is unit hour utilization. This is de“ned as the amount of time a speci“c unit is engaged directly on a call in a 24hour period. The International Association of Fire Fighters and the International Association of Fire Chiefs recommend a planning threshold of 25-30% while best practices would not exceed 30%. The balance of time is for ensuring equipment readiness, training and community engagement such as safety surveys and preplans of commercial buildings. We currently have four units running above 25%, which serves as the planning trigger for additional resources to meet call demand. Managing peak call times is of paramount importance to ensure ecient emergency response, public safety and the optimal use of resources. The study showed our highest volume of emergency calls are between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. with a steady plateau from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This high-level information allows us to identify patterns and more eectively coordinate our readiness to respond. These standardized benchmarks, as well as response models, proposed developments and growth trends of the county, served as a foundation in our strategic planning. So, what does this plan outline? Looking in the next “ve years were planning to add three new stations, one of which is currently funded through 1% local option sales tax. The same approach of sales tax is planned for the additional two stations, but the equipment and personnel would need to be allocated from other funding sources as sales tax and impact fees are not eligible. These three stations would support an advanced life support “re engine and an ambulance, which includes “ve personnel per shift for three shifts. Also, we would add three ambulances working daytime shifts. This helps meet the peak call demand while stang for 12 hours versus 24 hours. The balance of the plan refers to sta. We would bring on coverage sta, which would help support leave and reduce overtime and mandatory sta holds. Additional support sta will assist in the daily management and maintenance of our growing operation. We take our charge to serve you and our community seriously. This is why we have been internally reviewing operations and conducting a standards of coverage study. This process put us under the microscope not only in reviewing the details of our service, but also engaging the community through work groups to de“ne expectations. This process detailed a plan that positions us to best serve you in your time of need.

Fair@CharlotteCountyFL.gov.Fire & EMS study assessed countys safety standardsJASON FAIRCharlotte County Public Safety Director The Hurricane Ian seawall replacement project is underway. Construction schedules have been updated and are posted on the Canal Maintenance website for the next six-month look ahead. There are 14 projects in Punta Gorda Isles under construction, with four completed and four under construction, with one completed in Burnt Store Isles. Unsurprisingly, a project of this magnitude, aecting many homeowners with unique situations, will generate questions from those going through the seawall replacement process. One situation that has drawn attention is a homeowner with a dock installed directly under the cap; therefore, the docks height is non-conforming. The deck of the dock is supposed to be 15 inches from the top of the seawall. This allows enough room for the cap forms to be placed when the seawall is replaced. This particular situation had no room between the dock and cap typically, the cap face (from top of the cap to the bottom of cap) is 11 inches. If the deck was placed according to building standards (15 inches below top of cap) this would allow the 4 inches for the wood cap forms. Canal Maintenance sta comes across this situation approximately two or three times a year, and they have two options … either cut the dock back a foot or adjusting the seawall. Cutting the dock exposes the steel reinforcement, and the property owner is responsible for coating the steel to prevent it from rusting and spalling the dock. We always coordinate this eort with owners. Deciding to move the seawall back was the most logical solution because this property was at the end of the canal. And the seawall was only adjusted back approximately 8 inches. Another issue was caused when a contractor had an additional barge brought in and started a seawall replacement project. The contractor had not submitted their request for a stage permit until the day they began to work. The application process takes about a day because city sta has to ensure there are no building permits or issues with the property. Means and methods are the contractors responsibility; if they choose to utilize one site for staging and spend all of their time mooring to the site, this is entirely the choice of the contractor. The seawall contractors have been reminded of their responsibility to acquire a staging permit. Several residents have inquired about their responsibilities and contractor responsibilities related to the seawall replacement. In summary, the seawall contractors will be responsible for removing the old seawall and anything in their way, including docks and davits, installing the new seawall, back“lling the area and installing Floratam or Bahia sod. Residents are responsible for their own docks, lifts, fences, irrigation and water lines, electrical and any other owner improvements in the vicinity of the seawall. Seawall contractors can usually work around freestanding docks that were not damaged by the seawall. Residents with damaged docks and lifts are encouraged to contact a marine contractor to determine whether parts of your dock or lift can be secured and reused prior to the seawall contractor performing his work.

One of the “rst items on my to-do list was to meet the late Gene Matthews. Known as Mr. North Port,Ž he was obviously someone who played an important role in this citys history. His accomplishments were impressive: the “rst and only North Port resident to serve on both the Sarasota County Commission and Sarasota County School Board; the North Port Area Chamber of Commerces Businessman of the Year and the “rst member of its Business Advocate Hall of Fame; the namesake of the Boys & Girls Club and a tireless advocate for our youth. But what made an even bigger impression on me about Mr. Matthews was how he embraced me as a newcomer to North Port and a “rst-time city manager. He was always extremely supportive of me and what I have tried to accomplish during my time here. Each time I saw him, he always had a positive comment about the direction the city is headed. His expectations were also very high. I remember sharing with him the exciting news that, after decades of advocacy by the community, North Port was “nally getting not one, but two hospitals of its own. His response? What took you so long?Ž Mr. Matthews helped me appreciate how far our city has come in such a short time. I will cherish the copy of the book he once gave me, North Port: The First 50 Years.Ž He is a central “gure in the development of North Port, quite literally … his name and picture are scattered throughout the book. You cant tell our story without Gene Matthews. It was a privilege to be among the hundreds of people who attended the community memorial service for Mr. Matthews last weekend at San Pedro Catholic Church. Hearing the praises from so many friends, family members and North Port residents helped me realize what a wide impact hes had on this city. Im glad Mr. Matthews was still here to receive a Key to the City this past spring. My thoughts are with Lorraine, his wife of nearly 63 years, and the rest of his family. And Im forever grateful for his contributions to North Port, and for the warm welcome he gave me.

He can be reached at j”etcher@north portFL.gov.A personal thank you to Mr. North Port JEROME FLETCHERNorth Port City Manager Joan Meyer, 98-year-old enemy of the people, died in the line of duty on Saturday. A newswoman since 1953 and co-owner of the local paper in her hometown in central Kansas, she lived to see her Marion County Record, as well as her home, raided by police on Friday, for reasons that de“ed both law and logic. It is not hyperbole to say that this attack on the peoples right to know appears to have killed her. On Friday, police showed up looking for evidence that a reporter had run an improper computer search to con“rm an accurate report that a local business owner applying for a liquor license had lost her drivers license over a DUI. According to coverage of this story on the Records website, the reporter made no attempt to conceal her identity, providing her name.Ž Whats more, the Record had decided not to run the story, because editors questioned the motives of their tipster. The business owners complaint did have this result: People across the country who would otherwise have lived and died never having heard of Kari Newell now know that she lost her license after a drunk driving conviction and kept driving anyway. The police who followed up on the complaint by storming the Meyers home and oce took computers, phones and some of Mrs. Meyers completely unrelated stu, including the router that connected her Alexa speakers. These are Hitler tactics and something has to be done,Ž Mrs. Meyer told our Wichita Eagle colleague Dion Le”er after her belongings were con“scated, an employee injured and her paper left unsure it would be able to publish its print edition. The HitlerŽ comment turned out to be one of the last things she ever said,Ž Le”er wrote. Mrs. Meyer complained of feeling upset and stressed by the invasion of her home when she spoke to us on Friday.Ž Then, according to her newspaper, co-owned by her son Eric Meyer, with whom she shared a home, she was so traumatized that she couldnt eat or sleep. Stressed beyond her limits and overwhelmed by hours of shock and grief after an illegal police raid on her home and the Marion County Record newspaper oce Friday,Ž the story in her paper said, 98-year-old newspaper owner Joan Meyer, otherwise in good health for her age, collapsed Saturday afternoon and died at her home.Ž ATTACKS ON FREE PRESS A HALLMARK OF FASCISM At 98, Mrs. Meyer had lived through World War II, and so knew better than most of us what Hitler tactics are. She did not say Gideon Cody, the former KCPD captain who ran the raid, and whose time in Kansas City the paper was investigating, is a Hitler. But what she did say, which is that these are tactics made familiar to us by some of the darkest moments of history, is unfortunately true. When I wrote the other day about the Trumpian threat to our way of life, I got mail urging me to relax, because hey, looney liberalsŽ need to be purged from our government. Only, Im not relaxed, because attacks on a free press are a hallmark of fascism. Ive written over and over about why we should never trivialize the Holocaust by behaving as though NaziŽ is just another word for someone with whom we disagree. But it also oends the memory of the millions of victims of fascism to fail to name the real and growing threats to our democracy. And I mourn Mrs. Meyer, whose last public statement was something hard to hear but important because true. In her honor, I subscribed to her newspaper on Saturday, which set me back $34.99 for a year. Wherever you live, please think about doing that, too, even if the print edition is skinnier than it used to be. Because if you let them get away with it, it gets worse and worse and worse.98-year-old Kansas newswoman died in the line of duty MELINDA HENNEBERGERThe Kansas City Star

PAGE 8C SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comCOMMENTARYWhen I think of the people helped since Hurricane Ian by United Way of Charlotte Countys United at Work (UAW) program, my mind instantly moves to the business owners I spoke with after the storm who were hurting and reeling from the assault on their livelihood. Each one will run in my imagery and memory forever. Yes, they were in shock trying to determine how they would keep going. Equally though, they worried about their employees. United at Work was created to “nancially assist employees of businesses so they could keep working amid recovery eorts. The goal of the UAW program is to provide personal case management and resource navigation services to make getting assistance simple. Thankfully donors such as the Elsa and Peter Soderberg Foundation, who contributed a $500,000 matching grant, stepped forward to help. Out of this generous gift, the path from storm to sustainability began. United Way of Charlotte County (UWCC) has recently received a grant allowing us to continue this critical navigation work. Thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota Countys Suncoast Disaster Recovery Fund, a $67,000 grant will focus UWCCs ability to ensure the United at Work funds get to the workforce and care for their long-term recovery needs. We are extremely grateful for this support. The funds provided allow us to continue serving employees of Charlotte County businesses who were impacted by Hurricane Ian. The ripple eects of catastrophe caused by Ian create ongoing needs, both at work and in homes. Approximately 532 households have already been helped with critical Ian-related support, totaling close to $700,000. United at Work has provided a critical safety net for our region, allowing UWCC to immediately activate strategies to help families, and with new funding, sustaining support to this hard-hit region. One hundred percent of funds raised, currently totaling $1.3 million, have been designated for Charlotte County employees to receive help and hope after the storm. Just one month after Ian, through a grant provided by Gulf Coast Community Foundation, UWCC was able to hire Stephanie Lucy, a navigator solely focused on guiding families through the crisis. Stephanie has listened to every story and responded to those in need with compassionate direction. When I hear stories like that of the Mendoza family, who were forced to live in a RV in their driveway after their home was left unlivable, and how United at Work was able to cover some expenses to help them stay a”oat, I am thankful for those like Stephanie who have helped make such successful eorts possible. What makes UAW dierent than any other program is our commitment to making the process of applying and receiving assistance uncomplicated. Case managers streamline this process and link clients to other community resources. The impacts of a major storm are felt long after the event. Take for example the Stockton family, who reached out to UAW after “ghting with their insurance company and struggling to make ends meet. They had to take out a personal loan to cover their mortgage payment and other bills. Thankfully, UAW helped them with their mortgage and utilities, as well as a gift card for groceries. We continue to see households struggling with regular monthly living expenses as a consequence of Hurricane Ian. The generosity of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and their donors will allow us to continue “lling these gaps. A survey of 60 individuals who were helped showed that 34.9 percent considered their needs completely met and 47.6 percent considered their needs at least partially met. I was so appreciative of the support provided,Ž one person surveyed said. The hurricane created dicult times for many and United Way of Charlotte County made it all a little easier to recover.Ž When you Give Hope, you Get Hope with United at Work.

SEE MARSHALS , 2D By JESSICA ORLANDO STAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD „ With children entering their “ rst month of school, parents may be looking for after-school services that o er reading and mentorship. The Englewood YMCA provides children in kindergarten through fourth grade with reading mediation and mentorship programs in order to assist children who are considered at-risk or low-income. The early intervention program seeks to improve reading skills through mentorship and a research-based curriculum. At Englewood Elementary, 150 N. McCall Road, Y Reads coordinator Erin Morey is prepared for the new school year. The goals of our program is to increase reading by 75%, and we work with the bottom 20 to 30% of readers,Ž Morey said. We use a program called SIPPS.Ž Morey explained that the program takes up to 30 kids and then adds 10 kindergartners in the middle of the year after they learn phonics. SIPPS is a highly recognized reading intervention program that helps students learn phonological awareness, phonics and sight words. Kids, boys especially, are on grade level in fourth grade. But if they dont hit that target, the chances of making that are much more di cult, so they will never be on-level readers,Ž Morey said. We really try to hit them before that in hopes we get them caught up early.Ž While Y Reads does primarily focus on reading intervention, its other function is to provide mentorship. According to Morey, getting increased school attendance is an objective. We want to increase participation,Ž Morey said. What is found is that kids who are not su cient in reading at school have a higher attendance issues, so we want to grab those kids and make them feel better about reading.Ž Among attendance and reading intervention, Y Reads also wants to focus on passing rates. Morey explained that the target is an 85% pass rate from one grade level to the next.Reading program helps mediate and mentorYMCA Reads offers after-school assistance PROVIDED BY YMCA Two students of the Y Reads program.SEE PROGRAM , 2D By BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER VENICE „ The city will hold a neighborhood workshop on a proposed rezoning of part of the Venice Municipal Airport that could open the door to the creation of a commerce park at that site. The workshop is on Wednesday, Aug. 23. The workshop, required by city code, is focused on people who live within 250 feet of the property but is open to the public. Changes for two parts of the airport property are under consideration. One proposed change is to the land along the eastern side of the airport, where the 2011 airport master plan puts a business park for commercial and light industrial uses. The City Council discussed the park during its strategic planning session earlier this year as part of the future redevelopment of the Seaboard area. An airport commerce park would provide an alternate location for some of the businesses there. Aviation-related businesses might be interested in space in the park but the rezoning wouldnt include the development of new aircraft hangars, increase airplane tra c or allow uses that involve heavy customer tra c, a city news release says. Most of the trees along the Intracoastal Waterway east of the commerce park site arent on airport property and would be unaffected by any development, the release says.

The purpose of the Mayor 4 The Day contest is for the candidates to raise money for their chosen nonpro“t „ $1 equals one vote. The candidate with the most money by the Aug. 30 deadline wins, and all of the nonpro“ts get to keep all of the money their candidate raised. Judges panel members included: Mary Jones, with WENG Radio; Laura Roy, with St. Davids Jubilee Center Food Pantry; Tracy Warren, with The Waverly Restaurant and Bar; Tammy Birdsong, of Englewoods Platt Family and Keith Farlow, with Farlows on The Water.

Spread Spencers Sparkle is a kindness movement meant to spread love and positivity. I want to empower Englewood kids and the community to be who they want to be,Ž Callahan said. We have a sliding scale for tuition based on income, and we cant provide that without funding, so thats why Im here to raise money,Ž Berthiaume-Tieu said.

In addition to the two-hour language arts block provided by Florida curriculum, 33,961 hours of reading instruction is provided by Y Reads. Essentially, we are doubling their reading two days a week,Ž Morey said. We use the i-Ready scores provided by the schools, and if they dont have that we will buy it and test the children.Ž i-Ready is a online program that helps students learn how to build skills in order to engage with more rigorous and responsive texts. Lessons will teach fundamental skills and then gradually become more dicult as the student progresses. The program really segregates what skills the students are lacking in,Ž Morey said. Well place them in groups based on the issues presented, but we also target certain areas over others like ”uency before comprehension.Ž Like most skills, reading has a lot of building blocks to it. Students have to learn the basics before moving onto more dicult skills like comprehension and text analysis. Theres a lot of strategies we focus on like silent reading, stopand-jots and AIMSWeb which helps with ”uency,Ž Morey said. Through all of that we have to build up their vocab too.Ž Another strategy Morey uses focuses on the pre“x and sux of a word because she found that students will not always engage with the whole word, but only parts of it. This strategy helps break the word down into sound chunks, and then theres a spelling component along with a writing component,Ž Morey said. Its a start to summarization and critical reading, since they are so young.Ž Morey provides a composition notebook for her students where they will log books, engage in writing prompts, draw the characters and scenes and thinking about new books theyd like to try. Its just practice, practice, practice „ and thats what the program gives them,Ž Morey said. Its also 100% free to families.Ž Y Reads will start Sep. 6 at Englewood Elementary. Morey is looking for volunteers for the program to help out after school. Volunteers can help out from 3 to 5 p.m., or start at 2 p.m. when assisting with kindergartners. Anyone can volunteer and receive training. Children in the program are also provided snacks and beverages during the after-school two hour block.

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 3D By JOANNA MALVASSUN CORRESPONDENTNORTH PORT „ From dismantling land mines as a demolition specialist to serving as a combat medic in prisoner-of-war camps, William Byrd completed the sort of tasks others didnt want to do while serving in the Army from 1988 to 1992. Byrd described his dangerous missions in a multitude of countries, such as in Iraq. We put mine“elds out, and we clear mine“elds. When were going into enemy territory, that was one of our big jobs in Iraq. They would lay out mine“elds, and Id breach em. Id come through and make a path,Ž said Byrd, who now lives in North Port. Coming from a family of soldiers, Byrd knew that he wanted to join the Army immediately after high school. After his basic training, Byrd was stationed in Germany where met one of his lifelong friends, Eric Webster. The two soldiers were assigned to the same platoon. Hes got one of the biggest senses of humor that Ive ever met. At the same time, with that being said, he was as good a soldier that youd ever want to meet,Ž Webster said. Byrd seemingly thrived in times of peril, being awarded runner-up of Europes 7th Corps Soldier of the Year and the Meritorious Service Medal during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. The operation by the U.S.-led international coalition was launched to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi invaders. As explained by Webster, Byrd was brought to New York for the ticker-tape parade to be honored for his service following the operation. Throughout Desert Storm, Byrd would drive tanks through the vast desert, sometimes driving through massive sand storms. He assisted as a combat medic at the prisoner of war camps, hearing the stories of enemy prisoners. Byrd particularly remembers one prisoner who spoke English ”uently and attended the University of Baghdad. He said, I got a 10-year-old and a 12-year-old out here,Ž Byrd said, listening to how the man and his sons were spontaneously picked up by a truck and handed guns. It put a face to an enemyƒ. I learned to be grateful for what you have, even when its not much. It can always be worse, and it doesnt get a whole lot worse than that.Ž While serving in the military, Webster and Byrd traveled across Europe together. Some of Byrds day-o activities included climbing the Eiel Tower, skiing in Austria and catching the band Pink Floyd live in Berlin. BACK IN THE US By 1992, Byrd decided to return to the U.S. since he wanted to become a father. He joined the Florida National Guard and served for two years. However, as Byrd was leaving the Army in 1994, he became an alcoholic and was charged with more than one DUI. He says his alcoholism was exacerbated when his father died and his mother sold all of their property. It was just a bad time. I have a lot of prideƒ Its not a good thing, but Im not one to ask for help or for handouts, so when my mom did that, I just cut everybody o,Ž Byrd said. In Louisiana, Byrd received his second DUI and was placed in jail. Instead of asking for help from someone to pay his bail, he decided to stay in jail for four months. Byrd began a cycle of relapsing into alcohol. When he was released from jail and landed a job, he began to drink again, eventually losing his job and becoming homeless. When he sobered up, he managed to meet a girl in Morse, Louisiana. Six months into their relationship, Byrd fell back into drinking, and his girlfriend, whose brother-in-law was a police ocer, had him arrested. After serving jail time, Byrd was, yet again, homeless. Im really big on (the idea) that if you make your bed, you lie in it. And I knew I did that. It was all on me,Ž Byrd said. Moving to New Orleans and being homeless, Byrd lined up early to get into homeless shelters, often contemplating whether he should spend his remaining dollars for soap „ or another drink. Finally, one of his friends recommended the Department of Veterans Aairs to Byrd. Through the VA, Byrd received counseling, medications and other “nancial support in order to bring him back into the workforce. To Byrd, coming to the VA was transformative for his situation, as he told himself that he would never be homeless again. Byrd emphasizes his gratitude for the VA in spite of the concerns hes heard from other veterans about the program. Youre Army. Youre military. But, they treat you for free,Ž Byrd said. At the VA, they have a list of hundreds of people „ theyre way behind, theyre trying to just get things done „ so I dont expect them to treat me like a king.Ž Byrd said he turned around his life and reconnected with old friends and family members. He is now settled in North Port with his new family, including his girlfriend Anna and their children. A friend, Tom Fenton, expressed how much Byrd had changed. Hes become such a gentle soul. He used to want to “ght everybody and was out to drink. Now, hes such a loving soul and would do anything for anybody, especially vets,Ž Fenton said. To Fenton, one particular experience reminded him of Byrds character. We went through Hurricane Michael together in 2018. The next day, him and I got in his truck, and we went around helping people that needed help. You could see in his eyes that he gets no greater joy than to help somebody in need, just for a hug and to tell them to pay it forward when they can,Ž Fenton said.Desert Storm veteran struggled to adjust to civilian life PROVIDEDWilliam Byrd PROVIDED BY WILLIAM BYRDWilliam Byrd photographed oil well res in Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm.

SERMON OF THE WEEKPeople who have their money invested in the stock market can never be positively sure that it will be completely safe for retirement. Even land investments or business ventures can fail. There are always uncertainties and variables that will aect the health of ones investment. However, the child of God does not have to worry about their eternal investments. Jesus told us in Matt. 6:20,21: Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.Ž In Jesus day, moths could destroy your clothing, and rust would aect your money, and thieves could steal anything you have hidden. When we serve our Lord and His people unselfishly and invest our lives in pursuing a righteous life, we store up what the Bible calls treasure in heaven. I dont know exactly what this treasure entails, but I do know that Jesus tells us that it is a secure investment. When Paul wrote to the Colossian believers, he described their newfound faith in Jesus in these words: Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospelŽ (Col. 1:4,5). In their previous condition these Colossian believers had no hope for the future. They we lost in their sin and were looking toward the judgment of God. But now that they were in Christ, they are in possession of a hope laid up for them in heaven. The phrase laid upŽ means stored upŽ or reserved.Ž What a wonderful assurance we have been given by Gods Word. Even if our earthly investments fail, or our money runs out, or even if a thief steals everything we have, we possess treasure in heaven. We have a hope and con“dence that is securely laid up for us in heaven. The Rev.

PAGE 6D SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comCOMMENTARYGrowing ”owering vines takes time and some consideration as to their structural support and maintenance on into the future. Accordingly, selecting a vine that you like is important as you will be living with it for a number of years. One that I would like you to consider is the Rangoon creeper. This exotic ”owering vine is in full bloom right now and could make a wonderful impact in your landscape. The Rangoon creeper is a fast-growing, ”owering vine originally from tropical Asia where it grows on trees and along riverbanks. Because of its ornamental nature, it is a favorite in parts of Florida, as well as the tropics and subtropics worldwide. Best grown on a well-built arbor, pergola, trellis or fence, this sturdy woody vine can grow anywhere from 10 to 40 feet long. The clusters of tubular ”owers are exceptionally intriguing as they “rst open white, and then color-up to pink and “nish up as red over about three days time. You can experience all three colors on a cluster at the same time which enhances the eect. Bring this magni“cent ”ower cluster experience one step further … single-petalled or double-petalled ”ower cultivars are available on the market … maybe plant one of each. This outstanding ”oral display even comes with a pleasant fragrance to boot. The more sun that you can provide your Rangoon creeper, the more ”owers you will see spring through fall. This vine is listed Florida-Friendly Landscaping approved plant that is medium in drought tolerance once established but is not very salt-tolerant. Although best grown in Hardiness Zone 10a, some literature indicates that it will survive lower temperatures if we have a freeze or a frost and regrow from the roots in the spring. The Rangoon creeper can be grown from seed, cuttings or suckers. I grew one from seed and it took about three years to come into bloom. My plant started out as shrub-like and then developed into more of a vining nature. Cuttings will move full speed into vines without the shrubby adolescence. Although the Rangoon creeper is a FloridaFriendly Landscaping approved, the UF/ IFAS Assessment of Non-native Plants in Floridas Natural Areas has classi“ed this vine as a Moderate Risk.Ž This means that it has been given a yellow lightŽ and may be recommended, but gardeners should prevent its escape just as a precaution. The Rangoon creeper is a stunning vine that does need some space dedicated to developing its greatest potential. With some planning on what it will grow on, perhaps a Rangoon creeper is in your future. For more information on ”owering vines suitable for our area, or to ask a question, you can also call the Master Gardener Volunteer Helpdesk from 1-4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 941-7644340 for gardening help and insight into their role as an Extension volunteer. Ralph E. Mitchell is the director/horticulture agent for the UF/ IFAS Charlotte County Extension Service. He can be reached at 941-7644344 or ralph.mitchell@ charlottecounty”.gov.Rangoon creeper … single and double PHOTO PROVIDEDA double-owering rangoon creeper in full-bloom. RALPH E. MITCHELLMaster Gardener Nerud go from an employee apart of the team to operating her own business was inspiring. She wanted to team up,Ž Cardinale said. Were excited to be women in business owners „ that was really important to us.Ž The two captains pulled their experiences together in order to kickstart their boat tour, focusing on the experience that these tours can provide for their customers. We always have a captain and a crew,Ž Nerud said. The reason we always have a crew on the boat is to help educate you on the area and animals.Ž The “rst mate on the boat not only oers points of interest, but is also provides a layer of safety. If something happened, and someone had a heart attack now you have two people on the boat to support,Ž Nerud said. Always having those two people on the boat provides a better experience and educational value out there.Ž The pontoon named Crack of DawnŽ is a COI vessel, meaning its regularly inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard and allowed to carry passengers. We can hold up to 18 passengers and two crew,Ž Nerud said. The inspections are done in-water and out-of-water to ensure the safety and forti“cation of the vessel. The Coast Guard will check every single compartment on the pontoon with a camera to look for water. COI is very important for touring boats,Ž Nerud said. Among their oered tours, the public can also request to do a private event. We have families that come in and maybe their a larger family wanting the boat to themselves, or people will do special celebrations like birthdays and celebration of life,Ž Cardinale said. We also do corporate events too.Ž The crew oers complimentary iced water to keep everyone hydrated, but the crew welcomes BYOB and snacks as well. We work with Snooks too,Ž Cardinale said of the popular waterfront restaurant. People will come here and either eat before, or after a cruise, but we just try to make it as enjoyable as we can.Ž In partnership with Snooks, tour-riders are oered a 10% discount. The most popular tour seems to be a tie between sunset and sandbar depending on the time of year, according to the companys numbers. Sand Bar (tour) is a little ahead because its so hot right now, and people want to get into the water,Ž Cardinale said. Nerud and Cardinale expressed their excitement in joining the Englewood community. Theyre hoping to be able to bring some more jobs into the area. Are goal is to provide more tour options as we grow, more positions and providing more career options to those interested,Ž Cardinale said. Nerud actively advocates for her career as a boat captain, and openly talks about it in the community as a viable career path. Were excited to be here,Ž Cardinale said. You kind of have this little grey zone of Englewood, and thats where we want to be to bridge that gap of stu to do.Ž To learn more about tours and information about Gasparilla Boat tours, visit gasparillaboattours.com or call 833-786-8687.TOURSFROM PAGE 1D GetScreenedforRisksofStroke andCardiovascularDisease Areyouatrisk?

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 7D STAFF REPORTNORTH PORT „ A new nine-hole Myakkahatchee Creek Greenway Disc Golf Course recently open along North Port Boulevard. The disc golf course will help promote physical activity and outdoor recreation for the community, according to the citys Parks and Recreation Department. The course will also foster a sense of camaraderie and healthy competition for those who will use and love this course,Ž said Sandy Pfundheller, Parks & Recreation director. Disc golf is played much like golf except, instead of a ball and clubs, players use a ”ying disc, according to the Professional Disc Golf Association. The sport was formalized in the 1970s. The object is to complete each hole with the fewest throws. The $145,000 North Port course was paid for through impact fees and surtax funds and was designed with minimal impact to the environment,Ž Pfundheller said. The course meets the guidelines established by the Professional Disc Golf Association. It is accessible to all ages and abilities, between sunrise and sunset daily. The course is along the Myakkahatchee Creek Greenway and North Port Boulevard, between Greenwood Avenue and Appomattox Boulevard. Like at the North Port course, trees, terrain changes and shrubs, in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for golfers, according to the citys parks department. Disc golf is a popular sport in the United States played at the recreational, club, and international competition levels with about 9,540 courses nationwide. and 14,048 worldwide. There was about 1.2 million disc golfers in 2022, according to the PDGA. For more information, email LAnsel@ NorthPortFL.gov or call 941-429-7275.

PAGE 8D SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By KIM COOLOUR TOWN EDITOR VENICE „ The blue-shirted residents of Truewood at Venice battled their pink-shirted counterparts from Truewood at Charlotte Center this week. This years Truewood Spirit Week main event was held at the Venice location Wednesday. Between opening and closing ceremonies, the contestants battled it out in a variety of games, none of which has ever been contested at either the winter or summer games of the Olympics. Bean bag bowling, tabletop putting and pool noodle golf were just some of the competitions created by Linda Wilson, who planned the event. From opening ceremonies to a “ nal cool-o event, there was fun, food, frivolity, award ceremonies and, for management, a wet and wild version of a closing ceremony.Ž Among the events were bean bag bowling, tabletop putting and how to balance a frisbee on the end of a pool noodle. Linda Wilson, of Truewood at Venice for Spirit Week, helped create the events. Senior athletes also dealt with an indoor 18-hole golf course. Each four-person team played nine holes and then switched to play all 18 holes with their cumbersome pool noodle putters. The holesŽ were crafted from hula hoops cut in half and the ends “ tted into wooden blocks. The golfers had to puttŽ small beach balls through the half hula hoop holes and deal with a doglegŽ turn as each nine-hole courseŽ took a turn down a second corridor. You must not let your hands go below the pink grip at the top of the noodle,Ž she had to say more than once. The contestants quickly “ gured out that it was easier to control the clubŽ with one hand lower down on the noodle. When they completed one nine-hole course, the two teams switched courses, to play a total of 18 holes. There were no holes in oneŽ on these courses. It was so challenging, I gave trophies to each of the golfers,Ž Wilson said. After 18 holes of pool noodle gol“ ng, the teams headed o on a scavenger hunt. With a photo of the items they needed to “ nd and verbal clues, the winner would be the team that found most of the nine items on the list. When the games for the residents was completed, it was time for management to entertain the competitors. Everyone headed outside to the patio for some whipped cream pie tossing and a Pass the water challenge.Ž The contestants for these two events were sta members of the two Truewood residences with one additional participant, Pat Poon, the regional director of the Truewood residences in Florida, Georgia and Mississippi. When the games ended, matching trophies were given to each of the two teams. The Port Charlotte contingent headed home to a building that is the exact replica of the Venice building, Wilson said.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | YOURSUN.COMARTS SUN By ED SCOTT STAFF WRITERWorking for 20 years as a volunteer, building sets and scenery at Venice Theatre, is the most fun Barry Sullivan says hes ever had.So the Venice Gardens resident was heartbroken when he “ rst heard about the damage done by Hurricane Ian last fall. The retired dairy farmer from Vermont had been stranded at a friends house in North Port due to ” ooded roads. When he saw online images of the theater, he didnt realize the true extent of the damage. But four days later when he “ nally saw the theater in person he said, I sort of thought it was over.Ž Ian was over but not the resolve of the theater sta and scene shop volunteers. The Pinkerton Theatre, a black box theater, was restored in three months. But the larger Jervey Theatre was in bad shape and will not be ready to stage plays until at least late next year. There was a great need to “ nd an alternative space that could be used until the Jervey was back in operation. NEW ROLES Two Venice Theatre leaders in design and production were thrust into the spotlight. The important new roles for production manager/technical director John Andzulis and resident scenic designer Tim Wisgerhof were “ nding and recon“ guring an alternative space so the planned Jervey shows could go on. Andzulis said the “ rst question he and Wisgerhof asked themselves and others was which structures on campus were usable. What could they use in the Carole Freeland Raymond Center (the former o ce building and temporary public library that will be turned into future Venice Theatre education center) and the Technical Arts Center (the former liquor store turned busy scenery shop). Venice Theatre owns both buildings, located next to the north bridge. Fortunately, the TAC was renovated and opened prior to the hurricane. Without it being functional as a place for the production team to build things, they might not have been able to do much. Everyone agreed the Raymond Center should be recon“ gured for performances.Opening a new space at Venice Theatre gave production team a grand opportunity for collaboration Venice Theatre is using its education building (Raymond Center ) to stage some of its plays due to the hurricane damage.

PAGE 2E SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By ANDREW SELIGMANAP SPORTS WRITERCHICAGO „ Not long after Ian Happ got called up to the majors in 2017 by the Chicago Cubs, a boyhood dream realized with a storied franchise coming o a historic championship run, he was looking for pictures to hang in his apartment. From that simple desire came a vivid vision and one unlikely partnership with an English artist who made it come to life. Happ wanted to show Wrigley Field from a dierent viewpoint. I had this experience over and over with bringing people down on the “eld,Ž he said. Theyd been to 20, 50, 100 games at Wrigley, but never been on the “eld. And everybody would have the same experience of looking back up just in awe from seeing it from down low. And I thought that was such a cool experience that if I could bring that to more Cubs fans, more people, it would make the project really special.Ž Happs view of Wrigley Field is on display at a Chicago art gallery „ also where he got engaged last year „ for a few more weeks as part of a series of drawings by Patrick Vale. THROUGH MY EYES PROJECT He commissioned the artist to create three large ink pictures of The Friendly Con“nes from a players perspective “ve years ago. Instead of having pictures to hang in his apartment, the partnership led to something quite dierent. It became Happs Through My EyesŽ project, where fans can purchase prints and the proceeds go to his charity. The drawings are part of Vales See What I SeeŽ exhibit, a series of drawings of cityscapes so detailed they almost look like photographs. Theyre on display at Chicagos Gallery Victor through Aug. 26. All this is rooted in Happ simply looking for artwork after he was called up by the Cubs. He had a great view and wanted pictures of the city. A college teammate at the University of Cincinnati whod become an architect in New York gave him the names of several artists. One was Vale. The level of detail in Vales cityscapes stood out to Happ, with every brick and window, it seemed, in each building being drawn. And through the course of their conversations, a dierent vision emerged. Happ got the idea to bring Vale to Chicago and draw Wrigley Field from a viewpoint few fans get to experience, from a players perspective looking out onto the “eld and into the stands of the famed ballpark. The reaction friends and relatives had when he would bring them onto the “eld, even those who had been to a bunch of games on the North Side, also helped trigger the idea. So did Happs appreciation of the ballpark and its history. My “rst year in 17, we had the old dugout,Ž he said. We had the tiny old dugout with kind of a tunnel system, you know, just those old walkways and the things that you would “nd and the experience of feeling like (Ryne) Sandburg and Ernie Banks and (Ron) Santo and those guys sat in the same dugout. That was just such an amazing experience.Ž Happ brought Vale to Chicago in September 2018 and showed him around Wrigley. It was an odd pairing, considering Vale, a rugby and cricket fan from Bristol in Englands West Country, knew little about baseball. But he got the connection fans have with Wrigley. I understand when people talk about baseball and their connections to family and family stories and childhood,Ž said Vale, who lives in New York. Its the same for me with cricket. I can remember summers in the garden with grandpa and listening to the radio.Ž Happ had to explain the signi“cance of the 400 feet sign in center “eld and the iconic manual scoreboard and ivy. He had to go over the proper positioning of the players and the umpires. Happ also explained what it feels like standing in the “eld under the bright lights or at the plate with the crowd roaring. FAN FOCUS Vale was a quick study. He took pictures and used them to help him create images that are striking in their detail. Hed send rough drawings to Happ, who like a teacher or editor would mark them up in red ink. He got to know the characters that you see at Wrigley Field,Ž gallery owner Victor Armendariz said. So the guy whos selling drinks or the kids who are waiting to get their ball signed.Ž The pictures „ in charcoal and most of them black and white „ show everything from the faces of the fans, with some holding WŽ signs, and the vendors to the stats and graphics on the video boards. The ”ags above the manual scoreboard whip in the wind. They show a celebration unfolding near third base from the perspective of someone looking down the left-“eld line. And theres the view from the home dugout looking toward third base and right “eld as the pitcher delivers with the bright lights shining. He was talking about very speci“c moments,Ž Vale said. The scoreboard needs to feel like the scoreboard, right? I had to respect it and the place.ŽThrough a left fielders eyesFor Ian Happ, vision of Wrigley Field comes to life through partnership with artist AP PHOTOS/CHARLES REX ARBOGASTThe works of British artist Pat Vale titled See What I See, Pat Vale With Ian Happ,Ž a collaboration of views that Chicago Cub s Ian Happ sees at Wrigley Field on the eld and Vales own cityscapes, a joint venture with Happs charity at the Gallery Victor in Chicago. He was talk ing about very specic moments,Ž Vale said. The scoreboard needs to feel like the scoreboard, right?

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 3E By SHAR0N JOHNSON AND NARDOS HAILE ASSOCIATED PRESSATLANTA „ Rasheeda Frosts decades-long relationship with hip-hop started in 1981. She was a curious, energetic kindergartener „ eager to touch and explore anything put in front of her. Rasheeda remembered her mother presenting her with a huge, white box „ it was a record player that she would continuously spin, not knowing what its purpose was. Then, she said, her mom gave her a record with a colorful cornucopia printed in the middle: The Sugarhill Gang. She mustve just known hip-hop was embedded in me at such a young age,Ž the MTV Love and Hip-Hop: AtlantaŽ reality star said. The then 5-year-old would dance until she couldnt anymore. I played that record until I tore it up and scratched up the record.Ž Frost fell in love with hiphop. Lyrics, music videos, and magazine covers display a genre that is male-centered and male-dominated. Despite this challenge, Frost took her passion a step further and joined the ranks of female rappers and emcees who battled misogynoir, sexism, and patriarchy to send hip-hop spinning in a dierent direction, making way for women to take the main stage in the genre. I had to go out there and work triple as hard, make sure Im respected, not get taken advantage of as a female, and really go hard for what I know and stand for something,Ž Frost said. SHAPING THEIR IDENTITY From The Sequence releasing the “rst rap record by an all-female group, called Funk You UpŽ in 1979, to MC ShaRocks iconic performance on SNLŽ as a part of Funky 4+1, female rappers have been a part of hip-hop since its debut. Women have fought to shape their identi“cation in hip-hop and demand recognition. In the 50 years since DJ Kool Herc extended breaking at a back-to-school party, women have gone from donning a male-imitated aesthetic, to owning their sexuality in lyrics, to selling out stadiums for their own concerts. At hip-hops 50th anniversary, female rappers are taking their moment to shine „ while still demanding respect and facing decades-old challenges. Msia Kibona Clark, an African culture and feminist studies professor at Howard University, said women were largely invisibleŽ in hip-hop during the 80s and early 90s. Early on the idea was to imitate men in terms of the aesthetics, and the idea was the hip-hop uniform „ baggy clothes and sneakers and t-shirts,Ž said Clark. Clark said early female rappers had the challenge of navigating a culture tinged with sexism and sexual harassment, as well as carving out a perspective that often wasnt heard in the mainstream. To me those were the dark ages of hip-hop because it just wasnt enough women voices,Ž Queen Latifah said during an interview with The Associated Press. SiriusXM host Roxanne Shante started entering rap battles and making records as a young teen in the 1980s. The hip-hop legends battle tracks solidi“ed her as one of the earliest and “ercest emcees at the age of 14. I came in as little sis; even to the point of where sometimes they didnt even want to let me participate, because sometimes the men felt that I was that good,Ž Shante, told the AP, detailing how it was a problem for men to battle rap a teen girl. FEMINIST STORYTELLING Shante, along with artists such as Salt-N-Pepa, Yo-Yo, and Queen Latifah were voices that ampli“ed feminist storytelling and issues during the 80s and early 90s. Entertainer and philanthropist Yo-Yo was known for rapping about female empowerment and demanding respect, but she still dealt with having to stay in a womans place.Ž Those were some of the challenges when the record labels only respected men,Ž Yo-Yo said. During the early days, hiphop itself was being questioned, and later, the genre was being condemned as gangsta rap.Ž DJ Spinderella recalled consistently being asked how long she thought hip-hop would last. Female emcees found themselves having to defend the genre as well as prove themselves worthy of holding the mic. When there was negativity or any kind of misogyny, it only pushed us even more,Ž said DJ Spinderella, a member of the hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa. Our “rst goal was to shake our thing, but then the fact that we were inspiring women to become their better selves despite the negative was important.Ž By the late 90s and early 2000s, women were becoming more visible in hip-hop. Female artists oered a variety of sounds and trends „ from Lauryn Hills melodic rap to Missy Elliotts experimental music videos. Challenges for female rappers persisted. As more women entered the genre, some were uniting on hit records such as Ladies Night,Ž while others were pit against each other. At the same time, the hypersexualization of women was ramping up. With the historical treatment of women and how women have been sexualized, I think women artists have been able to reclaim it,Ž said Christin Smith, an independent consulting researcher. Although female rappers have pushed sex positive lyrics since the 80s, the mid-to-late 90s saw the advent of artists such as Lil Kim and Foxy Brown more overtly displaying and owning their sexuality. This drew controversy „ and hypocrisy. When I came out with songs like Make It Vibrate and songs like Georgia Peach, I got a lot of resistance from radio because they said it was too sexy,Ž said Frost, who released her “rst album Dirty SouthŽ in 2001. It was a battle every single day just to be heard, to be respected.Ž As rap continued to evolve from the mid-to-late 2000s, rappers such as Remy Ma and Trina continued to hold down the booth. Nicki Minajs impact on the genre was explosive in the 2010s „ as re”ected by her winning the BET Awards best female hip hop artist from 2010 through 2016. SOCIAL MEDIA TRACTION The late 2010s saw a change in technology. Internet access became widely available due to the smartphone . This gave rise to a new era of artists who social media as a way to gain traction. Hip-hop also became a part of pop culture, with the sound being used in movies and commercials. Hip-hop artists became the faces of popular brands and fashion labels. The shifting pop culture landscape, along with the tenuous work of female rap pioneers, helped pave the way for what audiences see now: an explosion of female rappers and artists on stage and behind-the-scenes. I love it. I think that we have our own table. We just dont have to get in to “t in. I think women are making powerful moves,Ž said Yo-Yo. Women in hip-hop have gone from behind-the-scenes to winning prestigious awards for their artistry. Theyve also ventured into other industries. MC Lyte is a popular voiceover artist, recognizable for her work voicing the BET Awards and the 2023 Grammy Awards. Missy Elliott this year will become the “rst female rapper inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Queen Latifah has starred in numerous movies, TV shows, and her own talk show. Roxanne Shante hosts Have a Nice DayŽ on LL Cool Js Rock Tha Bells Radio on SiriusXM. The theme of female empowerment remains but the message has changed „ with artists such as Megan thee Stallion and the City Girls rapping about sexual liberation and hypergamous values, as well as women having their own money. The pervasiveness of misogyny and patriarchal violence still threatens the existence of female rappers. Some experts think that female rap is more hyper-sexualized than ever before, and artists must “t a certain body standard to be accepted. Clark pointed out the rise in popularity of the Brazilian butt lift surgery among female rappers. Its hard to tell whether or not someone is doing that because they genuinely want to do that. They feel more pleased with their body with that procedure versus those who are told if you want to make it in this industry, you have to do this.Ž Theres also a push for more femme-presenting queer and non-binary artists to have a platform in a genre that has been largely homophobic and heteronormative since its inception. My hopes for the future of hip-hop is to de“nitely see more queer people in the mainstream,Ž said Itz(asterisk)Nobi, a femme-presenting non-binary rapper. We de“nitely have such an interesting angle to share as far as just humanity and being a person.Ž Itz*Nobi said they do notice more representation „ and so do many female rap pioneers. Artists and fans hope that hiphop will continue to diversify and give every person listening something to relate to „ and hope for. Theres so much more to this world,Ž Itz*Nobi said. I think thats whats so beautiful about art and music, is that you can share so much with somebody.ŽWomen battle misogyny to send hip-hop spinning in a new directionTheres a sense of empowerment, independence MARK J.

PAGE 4E SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By MAYLEE CHAISTAR TRIBUNEIn words „ and pictures „ writers are finding inventive ways to explore feeling at home, whatever that means to them. Here are three memoirists with very different takes:This Country: Searching for Home in (Very) Rural America (Princeton Architectural Press)Navied Mahdavians lyrical graphic memoir details the three years he and his wife, Emelie, a “lmmaker, spent living o the grid in rural Idaho. Mahdavian, a cartoonist whose work often appears in the New Yorker, uses spare and beautiful illustrations to detail the challenges of making a life, learning to grow food and generating their own electricity. They also struggle to “t into their community, which is predominately white and conservative. Mahdavian, the son of immigrants from Iran, encounters microaggressions about his bearded appearance, endures anecdotes about terrorists and faces a political culture that rejects change. The couple love the beauty of the natural setting, but after their biracial daughter is born, they must decide if its a welcoming place for her to grow up. A running thread references the historical presence and present-day absence of the Indigenous population, including pictographs painted on mountainsides. Mahdavian wonders,  What disappeared from this place “rst? The bison or the willows? The bighorn sheep or the sheepeater Shoshone?ŽBirding While Indian: A MixedBlood Memoir (Mad Creek Books)Addressing U.S. treatment of the Indigenous population directly is Thomas C. Gannons timely memoir. Gannon grew up in South Dakota, the son of a Lakota mother and an Irish father, an abusive alcoholic. After his parents divorce, Gannon is raised by his mother and then sent to a Catholic boarding school for IndianŽ children. He bears witness to the racist cruelty that Indigenous people, including his family, encounter from the white population. He also struggles to “nd himself as a biracial boy who identi“es most closely with his Lakota heritage. Calling his book an anti-memoir,Ž Gannon details several histories: his own coming-of-age , his scholarship in Lakota history and Indigenous literature and his life as an avid birdwatcher. As a crossbreed person, I feel inordinately pulled toward such a cross-genre form,Ž writes the professor at the University of NebraskaLincoln, an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. Propelled by Gannons dry wit, self-deprecating humor and righteous anger at the injustices of ChristoColumbus colonialism,Ž the book also is a moving testament to Gannons hardworking mother, whose life was so much more a suering and struggle and triumph.ŽChinese Prodigal: A Memoir in Eight Arguments (Grove Atlantic)David Shihs book is structured as a series of essays that combine personal anecdotes with scholarly insights. A professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Shih examines historical and present-day issues that shape the construction of race and experience of racism in the United States, all from his Asian American perspective. Shih also details his relationship with his father, whose death in 2019 inspired Shih to write this book. Maybe intimacy for my father and me can happen only after death,Ž he writes. There are many reasons Shih feels like a prodigalŽ son. He does not make it back to his fathers home before his father dies, his mastery of English came at the expense of his Chinese language skills and his desire as a young boy was to assimilate into the dominant white culture. Later, Shih realizes he cannot escape race and racialization „ and learns to embrace his identity as an Asian American.Three memoirs by writers made to feel like outsiders at homeThey provide multifaceted perspectives into identity PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS/TNS MAD CREEK BOOKS/TNS GROVE ATLANTIC/TNS By AMY MARTINSUN CORRESPONDENTStruggling to “nd interesting recipes to cook? Luckily Lowis Carltons cookbook Famous Florida Recipes was recently revised with even more recipes to try. With the full title Famous Florida Recipes: Centuries of Good Eating in the Sunshine State,Ž the second edition builds upon the original 1972 cookbook, bringing Florida up to date in the cooking world. In addition to revisions on all of the classics from the “rst edition, reviser Marisella Veiga includes new recipes and discussions of food history, including oyster roasts by the Timucua tribe in St. Augustine. There are so many traditional foods that were passed down from all the dierent groups that have come to Florida,Ž Veiga said. Florida has been home for Veiga and her family for many years, having moved from Cuba in 1960. With an in-depth knowledge of cuisines and food history all throughout the state, Veiga was honored to bring together all the information for this edition. The cookbook features contributions from Floridas many dierent cultures, such as Haitian Roast Chicken with Two Stungs and Vietnamese Fish Sauce. Each chapter delves into the history of these cultures, as well as the dierent regions and towns of Florida, from the heartland to Armstrong. The cookbook is a celebration of Florida and its people and foods,Ž Veiga said. There are towns that have their foods that theyre known for and their own beauty, and Im really happy to have been familiar with them and have had the opportunity to bring them in.Ž While some recipes in the book are more complex than others, they are not too daunting. This is a cookbook meant for homecooks, and any possibly unfamiliar ingredient or process is explained thoroughly by Veiga and the food professionals she coordinated with. The cookbooks strength lies in the contributions of homecooks, many of whom I just know personally are excellent cooks and enjoy their traditional foods,Ž Veiga said. With 221 recipes in total, the second edition of Famous Florida Recipes is available now for purchase in bookstores and online. I hope people cook from it and invite me home for dinner!Ž Veiga said. To read more of Veigas writing, her memoir We Carry Our Homes with Us,Ž published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press in 2016, tells the story of her familys exile from Cuba to Miami and their resettlement to Minnesota.Florida cookbook promises centuries of good eatingBook features history and recipes from many different cultures PROVIDED BY PINEAPPLE PRESS As a crossbreed person, I feel inordinately pulled toward such a cross-genre form.ŽThomas C.

www.yoursun.com | The Daily Sun SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 PAGE 5E By ED SCOTTSTAFF WRITERThe Venice Art Center has 30 or more teachers of its many classes. They teach a variety of styles to dierent age groups. But more importantly, they come from a variety of places and backgrounds and that informs their wide range of perspectives on art and life. Haley Ponder is a 23-year-old, selftaught artist born and raised in Venice. She specializes in abstract acrylic painting, but also has done custom paintings for homes nationwide. Check out her Etsy page at https://www.etsy. com/shop/PaintingsbyPonder. Content has been edited for clarity. Medium: Acrylic paint, resin work, wire wrapped jewelry Years active as an artist: Coming up on three years. What course do you teach at VAC and when is it oered? I teach an array of art classes here at the VAC. My classes are for any ages all year long, adult and kid classes are oered usually after school weekdays. Although during the summer my classes are mainly for kids. Ive read that you teach multiple media.Ž What exactly does that mean? Also, is versatility important to you? Teaching multiple mediums means that I dont just stick to one type of art. For instance being solely an acrylic artist, I prefer to broaden my as well as my students horizons. I “nd versatility very important. Actually there is a quote by William Shakespeare that really resonates with me that most know but not the full saying which states A jack of all trades is a master of none but oftentimes better than a master of one.Ž Personally I dont like being limited in my creative freedom so having the ability to switch and combine them is what I love. Do your teaching interests mirror your artmaking interests? What kind of art do you want to tackle next as an artist? I am a fairly new teacher so theres a lot more planned for me in the future such as being a part of the VAC bling jewelry show in November and the “ne arts show in February. I couldnt express how much I love what I do, being able to teach something Im passionate in to help others express themselves is something truly wonderful. I love to listen to classical music to relax. Some people look at art to relax. What mental health benets come from creating your art? Theres such a mental health bene“t in being able to create whether it be art, music, food etc. Theres just something so relaxing about being able to express yourself especially because in art there is no wrong so you can just let go and create! Do you remember the rst time you decided you liked art? I have always had a deep love for art „ my grandmother did sculpting. In high school it was my favorite classes „ 2D and 3D „ that allowed me to really decide which path I wanted to go in. Is it a dream of yours that people will see your art in a gallery and want to buy it? What other art-related dreams do you have? I would love for people to see my art in galleries „ de“nitely a dream for it to be purchased. One day I hope to own a shop or art gallery to continue my passion for teaching. What about art makes you wake up every day and say, Im sooo glad Im an artist!Ž? What I love about being an artist is that it is calming and freeing for me. I work in the medical “eld for a Venice plastic surgeon, and it is such a relief to get away from the busy day…to…day work life. What about art makes you wake up some days and say, Being an artist is frustratingŽ ? Personally, I do mostly abstract art so I dont “nd it very frustrating per se in the creating aspect. But making sure I have all the right materials and the correct amount for classes can be frustrating at times. As a writer I am jealous that artists can show me history, like a painting of a beloved childhood pet, that 1,000 of my words cannot do justice to. Is creating art a superpower? Creating art is such a superpower as well as being able to teach art to the young kids. Being able to help expand their imaginations and show them that they have so much potential is something so magical. In September last year I lost my best friend Ashley and I had my very talented friend @binnycreates on Instagram paint a portrait of her in the jungle and it was breathtaking. The ability to evoke emotions or tell stories through a single picture that de“nitely seems like a superpower to me. You always hear the saying a picture is worth 1000 wordsŽ and I couldnt agree more.

STAFF REPORTSARASOTA „ The deadline is nearing for those interested to apply for the Emerging Artists Program by Florida CraftArt. This program provides training in marketing, promotion, and presentation, as well as a booth for artists to showcase and sell their work at its large outdoor festival held the weekend before Thanksgiving. The program is open to Floridabased artists who are at the beginning of their art careers and are learning how to price and sell their work. The deadline to apply is Aug. 31. To qualify for the program, artists must be Florida residents at the beginning of their professional art careers. They cannot have participated in an outdoor art festival or had a professional solo show. Emerging Artist does not necessarily mean a young artist,Ž said Jorge Vidal, CEO of Florida CraftArt. Several artists in the past have been people who had other careers but concentrated on art later in life. Mark Georgiades, a Florida Panhandlebased artist, was a mechanic who built and raced cars before retiring. After retirement, he used his welding skills to create dynamic metal sculptures. The Emerging Artist Program was a kicko point to his professional art career, allowing him to show his work to a large audience of serious art collectors. The Emerging Artists Program has proved to be a stepping stone for many up-and-coming artists. Through this marvelous program, I received valuable mentorship from the renowned glass artist and businessman Duncan McClellan,Ž said ceramic artist Susan Pease. I was also given a free booth at the festival, a session with professional photographer Brian James, and postcards of my work. I almost sold out of my work over the twoday festival and was able to keep 100 percent of the sales.ŽEmerging Florida artists program taking applicationsDeadline is Aug. 31 Florida CraftArt FestivalThe event will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday Nov. 18 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday Nov.19.

PAGE 6E SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comSPECIAL FEATURE The weather was cold and overcast when Spielberg “lmed the D-Day landing scene „ this matched the weather from the actual landings in 1944. After “lming, a crew hired by the studio spent a month restoring the beach to the way it had been before production had begun.Spielbergs lowest-grossing “lm was a semi-autobiographical “lm that only barely made back its $40 million budget. However, The FabelmansŽ earned seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Spielberg won his “rst Best Director Oscar for Schindlers ListŽ... Minority ReportŽ cost $102 million to make, but some of that was oset by product placements. Toyota paid $5 million to get a futuristic Lexus into the “lm and Nokia spent $2 million to put its logo on the headsets characters wear. Other companies paying for placement in the Tom Cruise ”ick: The Gap, Pepsi, American Express and Reebok. E.T. the ExtraTerrestrialŽ was originally written as a horror movie about a family terrorized by an alien. Spielberg had it rewritten into a familyfriendly story and used the terror angle in a “lm he later produced: Poltergeist.Ž Spielbergs second “lm, Jaws,Ž cost $9 million to make but grossed $482.9 million in 1975. ... and his second for Saving Private Ryan.Ž In a “lm that contained a number of breathtaking scenes, one of the most stunning was the opening sequence showing the D-Day invasion of Omaha Beach from the point of view of the “lms lead character, 2nd Ranger Battalion Capt. John Miller, played by Tom Hanks. U.S. troops take heavy casualties during the landing. Spielberg spent $12 million on that one scene, which was “lmed over 25 days at Ballinesker Beach in southeastern Ireland. More than 1,000 members of the Irish Army Reserve were hired to play U.S. soldiers. Thirty or so were amputees issued with fake limbs that were then blown o with special eects. Forty barrels of fake blood were used, as were more than 17,000 squibs: Tiny little explosions rigged to look like bullets hitting the sand and the surf. Spielberg himself operated a hand-held camera for many of the shots. The scene consisted of more than 200 shots and played over 24 minutes of the “lm. Thats an average of about 7.2 seconds per shot.Spielberg intended the scene to be uglyŽ but was worried the Motion Picture Association of America would give the “lm an NC-17 rating. It was rated R instead. The Department of Veterans Aairs, aware that veterans might be traumatized by the “lm, set up a special toll free phone number for veterans and their families. Spielberg had the entire “lm desaturated „ about 60% of the color was removed „ in order to make Saving Private RyanŽ look more like a product of its era. This would cause an issue many years later when the movie would be broadcast on TV: DirecTV and Dish Network both digitally adjusted the color back to normal levels. Since then, most copies of the movie have disclaimers at the beginning that explain the presentation of color was intented by the “lmmakers. Spielberg considered both Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson for the lead role of Capt. Miller before settling on Tom Hanks. Spielberg wanted a relatively unknown actor with an all-American look for the title role of Pvt. Ryan. After Edward Norton and Noah Wylie turned down the part, Spielberg cast Matt Damon. But then Damons previous project „ Good Will Hunting,Ž which Damon co-wrote with his co-star, Ben Aeck „ won Damon and Aeck an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Spielberg sent all the principal actors to a weeklong boot campŽ where they were put through intensive army-type training. When the other actors complained bitterly about the session, Tom Hanks stepped up to point out how helpful this would be to add realism to the “lm. This caused the unhappy actors to back down. Spielberg intentionally left Damon out of this session. He wanted the other actors to resent Damons character. The story Damons character tells near the end of the “lm „ about spying on his nowdeceased brother with a girlfriend in the barn on the family farm „ was made up by Damon o the top of his head. Spielberg liked it so much he left it in the “lm. At one point in the “lm, a character is mocked for wanting to write a book about the bond of brotherhood that develops between soldiers during war.Ž In 2001, Hanks and Spielberg would team up as executive producers of a TV series about soldiers in World War II: Band of Brothers.ŽSources: Internet Movie Database, The Numbers, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, Coee or Die magazine, MentalFloss.com, ScreenRant.com, Yardbarker.com, History.com, WarHistoryOnline.comALL PHOTOS FROM PARAMOUNT PICTURES SPIELBERG AT THE BOX OFFICETHAT AMAZING D-DAY SCENE AN UNKNOWN AS PRIVATE RYAN RELEASE DATE WORLDWIDE GROSS, ADJUSTED FOR INFLATIONTom HanksMatt Damon Spielberg had set out to make the most realistic World War II movie.

PAGE 8E SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.comMAKING IT HAPPEN Andzulis and Wisgerhof talked about the transformation in mid-August while sitting in the Raymond Center, a few feet from the set of the next performance there, Golf with Alan Shepard.Ž The dramady is set for Aug. 25-Sept. 10. Alan Shepard may be the only person to ever play golf on the moon, but what the Venice Theatre production crew members and volunteers accomplished was also impressive. Laurie Colton, Venice Theatres director of marketing and public relations, said it was astounding to sit there and watch Wisgerhofs presentation.Ž There was a plan, but it wouldnt be easy. Compared to the Jervey, Andzulis described the Raymond as a very dierent and challenging space. We built a theater from what we had laying around. It was really interesting to watch our volunteers, as everything clicked,Ž he said. There were plenty of things to “gure out. How would they manage electricity and lighting? How would they coordinate the ”ow of people in a manner that pleased the “re marshal? Where would they place props so the lights would catch them, and the entire audience could see them? Some new Raymond construction was repairs due to Ian. Other new construction was part of the new performance space. But the crew that had adapted for months and months to COVID-19 restrictions was up to this task. Wisgerhof called the transition to the Raymond COVID 2.0.Ž SHAPE AND SIZE Andzulis and Wisgerhof recognized there were major dierences between producing a play in the Jervey and producing one in the Raymond Center. Pre-Ian, the Jervey had 432 seats. There was a 40-foot-wide by 32-footdeep stage and a 16-foothigh ceiling, plus a ”y loft space for some of the 120 lights. The audience sat 100-plus feet from the back of the stage. There are 130 seats in the Raymond. It has a 32-foot-wide by 19-footdeep stage and an 8-foot, 7-inch-high ceiling and 40 lights. The audience sits less than 30 feet from the back of the stage. In addition, the Jervey is a large theater with a traditional proscenium stage.Ž Audiences see plays through a large, permanent, framed opening „ the stage. In recon“guring the Raymond, they built a thrust stage.Ž Audiences are seated on three sides of the stage. The thrust stage is smaller. Actors using it are closer to the audience. Its a more intimate setting, which creates challenges and opportunities. (Andzulis says there are some things they can do in the Raymond that they cant do in the Jervey.) They considered building a proscenium stage in the Raymond, but the building wasnt tall enough to accommodate seating in the back. The option they chose „ the severeŽ thrust stage with low ceilings „ was far from ideal but the best option available. {div}While the Jervey had a spacious loading dock, All of the scenery has to “t through that (Raymond Center) door,Ž Wisgerhof said, pointing at a nondescript, single-wide door.{/div} Its always going to be a dierent experience because its a dierent theatre,Ž he said. Space transforms every story you are telling. Its going to make it completely dierent depending on the space, and thats exciting.Ž NO TIME TO WASTE The day after the storm, when sta surveyed the theaters damage, they knew that doing something, anything, was imperative, Wisgerhof said. They knew they couldnt wait the 24 to 30 months until the Jervey was rebuilt. They had to preserve Venice Theatres status as the premiere community theatre in the area and one of the best in the country. They knew they had to create the performance space on campus, in the downtown block where Venice Theatre is located, to keep patrons happy. So as work began on the Raymond, Wisgerhof was like the playwright and Andzulis like the director for one the most important performances of their careers. The venerable crew and volunteers were their cast. Tim is an absolutely wonderful construction superintendent,Ž volunteer Sullivan said. He knows what he wants done. Hes worked with the crew well enough to know who can do what, and he was insisting we could get it done. Hes really special at it.Ž The crew completed recon“guration of the Raymond in 51 days, in time to present seven shows there through May last season. When Ian hit, actors were in rehearsals for Kink Boots.Ž Originally scheduled for fall 2022, Kinky BootsŽ was postponed inde“nitely. The 16-foot-tall, sparkly, red high-heeled boots that are part of the set are better suited for the higher ceiling in the Jervey. The production crew could have taken a bow when Hamlet P.O.V.Ž was the “rst show performed in the Raymond. It ran Nov. 18-20. A Christmas CarolŽ opened Dec. 6. They produced GypsyŽ in the Raymond and plan to produce The Addams FamilyŽ there, beginning in October, among other productions. ADAPTING PERFORMANCES Actors and directors who were accustomed to working in the Jervey adapted to the new reality in the Raymond. The proximity of the audience to the stage, and its small size (the severe thrust), provide a challenge for directors. Murray Chase, Venice Theatres restoration supervisor and longtime leader, directed last seasons production of A Christmas CarolŽ in the Raymond. Directing in a thrust is a dierent skill entirely,Ž he said. Making sure audiences receive an equal experience is essential, no matter where they are seated. Its also a lot of fun, because of the intimacy of the room.Ž Colton, who performed in A Christmas Carol,Ž agrees. The best thing about doing a show, especially A Christmas Carol, in the Raymond Center is how intimate it feels and how connected you feel with the audience. That has been a real positive,Ž she said. The dicult thing about doing a show in the Raymond Center is concentrating on the angles and the blocking (where an actor moves on stage).Ž The angles on a thrust stage are very odd compared to what actors are used to on a proscenium stage, Colton said. Sometimes, when standing in a corner, you project your voice to the other side of the audience, she said, an angle that actors must get accustomed to. Once you get used to it, its great.Ž Some patrons came to shows at the Raymond curious to see what its like to watch a play there. Others who came didnt realize the work that went into making the space a theater. In after-show surveys, patrons shared their impressions: Loved the show. Amazed at how well you did with [a] so much smaller stage.Ž The performance space and set design made for an excellent intimate experience.Ž Terri“c performance! And so impressed by the Raymond theater being set up so quickly.Ž Andzulis and Wisgerhof also got ample feedback about the shows from the men and women who build the sets. Our scene shop volunteers,Ž Andzulis said. They come to see the shows. They see the invited dress rehearsals and they tell us everything.Ž Sullivan, one of those scene shop volunteers, said he initially thought Wisgerhofs plan for the Raymond was ambitious and that the crew couldnt get it done in a short timeframe. But we did,Ž he said. A pretty stunning piece of work.Ž PHOTO PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATERThe set of A Christmas CarolŽ designed for the production in Venice Theatres Raymond Center.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | YOURSUN.COM SUN Charlotte€DeSoto€Sarasota By RICARDO TORRECORTEZLAS VEGAS REVIEWJOURNALLas Vegas proud title as the Wedding Capital of the WorldŽ has been forti“ ed by a rich history „ and more than “ ve million nuptials. Locals, but more often tourists, tie the knot here in traditional ceremonies, while some, for example, have Elvis impersonators oversee their nuptials. Themed a airs or not, the citys wedding chapels have been instrumental in keeping the Las Vegas wedding destination reputation a” oat. With more than “ ve million I dos and counting, each year Las Vegas conducts more destination weddings than any other place on the planet,Ž according to Clark Countys marriage bureau. For well over 70 years a Vegas wedding has captured the public imagination as the ultimate quick, stress-free, fun, glamourous wedding destination.Ž For the upcoming 70th anniversary since the London Daily Herald “ rst declared the city the Wedding Capital of the WorldŽ on Sept. 23, 1953, Clark County that month is planning a mass vow renewal ceremony at Caesars Palace. The Las Vegas ReviewJournal, for its part, has compiled a list of some of Las Vegas historic chapels. But “ rst, heres a fun fact: The July 1909 wedding of Grace McGee and William C. Bright was the “ rst recorded marriage here, just shy of two years before the city of Las Vegas was incorporated.Chapel of the West Algiers (1966-2003)Located at the site of the soon-to-open Fountainbleau resort on the Strip, the chapel was originally themed around the Little Church of the West.Ž Before closing, it twice rebranded, to All Religions ChapelŽ and Candlelight Wedding Chapel.Ž Notable brides and grooms included Bette Midler, Barry White and Michael Caine. In 2017, o cials moved the structure to the Clark County Heritage Museum.Graceland Chapel (1923-present)The building, built a century ago, was originally the house of Ollie McKee, who turned it into a wedding business in 1939. She originally named it Gretna GreenŽ after a Scottish town where marriage by declarationŽ was popular in the previous century, according to a Clark County report on the wedding industry. Elvis Presley once showed up unannounced for a tour of the chapel, prompting the owner to change the name in his honor after the artists death a decade later, according to the chapels biography. According to Graceland Chapels website, notable celebrities who wed there include The King himself,Ž Jon Bon Jovi, Jay Leno, Salma Hayek and Leslie Mann.Hitching Post (1923-1990s)Also originally a private home at 514 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the building was repurposed as a wedding chapel in 1934. The chapels steeple was built in the 1950s, and in the following decade, the building was painted all white. The property was demolished after the block was sold and redeveloped. An unrelated Hitchin PostŽ wedding chapel still operates inside the Circus Circus.Little White Chapel (1955-present)Located at 1301 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the chapel strives to be innovative in its wedding o erings. That includes the “ rst ever wedding drive-thru „ conducted in a classic pink Cadillac convertible. The chapel touts its appeal to celebrities, and its website lists the marriages of Mickey Rooney, who wed there twice; Mary Tyler Moore; Brittney Spears; Michael Jordan; James Caan and the late Sinead OConnor, among others. Famous couples that wed there include Ben A eck and Jennifer Lopez, Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow, and Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.Chapel of the Bells (late 1960s-present)The chapel, originally built in 1955, has hosted weddings since the late 60s at the now Fun City Motel, 2233 Las Vegas Boulevard. Its been featured in blockbusters such as Honeymoon in VegasŽ „ starring local celebrity Nicolas Cage „ Indecent Proposal,Ž Mars Attacks!Ž and Vegas Vacation.Ž Its famous weddings include those of Kelly Ripa, Jenny Jones, Leslie Nielsen, Mickey Rooney and Mark Consuelos, according to its website.Chapel of the Flowers (1955-present)Located at 1717 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the chapel was one of the “ rst where weddings were o ciated on the Strip. Its been remodeled over the years, including the recent addition of a Married in Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign at which couples can pose like they do at the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign a few miles north on the tourist corridor. Notable nuptials include those of 1990s power couple Carmen Elektra and Dennis Rodman. Ronnie Vannucci, the drummer of Las Vegas darlings The Killers, worked there as a photographer while the band recorded its breakthrough album, Hot Fuss.Ž Wed rehearse in the day and Id go o to work at night time,Ž he told music journalism outlet NME.Wedding Capital of the World lifted by Las Vegas historic chapelsThe city is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the title BENJAMIN HAGER/LAS VEGAS REVIEWJOURNAL/TNSBryan and Amy McGillis, from Vancouver, Washington, pose for a photo in front of the wedding-inspired version of the Welcome to Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign on April 4, 2022, at Chapel of the Flowers, in Las Vegas.

ALTSCHULERSTAR TRIBUNE TNSIn 1954, Ralph Edwards, host of television show This Is Your Life,Ž introduced viewers to Alice Marble, a champ who held six prestigious titles simultaneously, and revolutionized the game of tennis for women.Ž At the end of the program, Edwards noted that Marbles car had played its last match,Ž and presented her with a new Mercury. The gift, Madeleine Blais writes, implied that at 40, nothing in Alices present was as exciting as her past.Ž In Queen of the Court,Ž Blais „ a journalism professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and author, among other books, of In These Girls, Hope Is a MuscleŽ „ provides an informative, if more dispiriting than inspiring biography of the largely forgotten tennis star of the 1920s and 30s. Blais documents the emotional, physical and financial challenges Marble faced as an amateur, as well as her determination and good fortune. Until she won titles at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, Marble supported herself with part-time jobs, and Eleanor TeachŽ Tennant „ her coach, mentor, and perhaps lover „ paid for her meals, clothing and living expenses. HOLLYWOOD CONNECTIONS Carole Lombard, the queen of screwball comedy, who took lessons from Tennant, pitched in as well, and introduced Marble to Hollywood celebrities. These connections helped the tennis star get a gig as a singer at New Yorks Waldorf Astoria Hotel and a cameo role (as herself) in the Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn movie, Pat and Mike.Ž At the outset of her brief professional career (matches were suspended during World War II), Marble was paid $25,000 for a 4 1/2-month tour, one-third the salary of Don Budge, her male counterpart. An hour before a match in Minneapolis, she threatened to strike, and the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association caved. In July 1950, Marble urged the sanctimonious hypocritesŽ in her sports establishment to desegregate the sport by allowing Black player Althea Gibson to compete in the U.S. championship tournament in Forest Hills, New York. If Gibson represents a challenge to the present crop of women players,Ž Marble declared, its only fair that they should meet that challenge on the courts, where tennis is played.Ž The tennis association relented. Queen of the CourtŽ is not without flaws. The narrative is cluttered with names and tennis scores. Adopting an old-fashioned approach, Blais details the clothing Marble wore on and off the court. And the author devotes too much space to Marbles long, lonely, financially strapped, alcohollubricated retirement. In her final chapter, Blais reveals that Marble almost certainly fabricated many stories. The list includes: marriage to a soldier who was killed in action in World War II; a miscarriage; adoption of a 5-year-old boy, who died in an accident; a stint in Switzerland as a spy for the U.S. government; an honorary degree from Harvard University; and an affair with Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone.Ž Alice Marble, it seems clear, was one of many athletes who were born too early and, after her sport was done with her, lived too long. Queen of the Court: The Many Lives of Tennis Legend Alice MarbleŽ by Madeleine Blais; Atlantic Monthly Press (432 pages, $30)The Queen of the Court struggled to get what she was owedAn informative biography of Alice Marble, tennis star of the 1920s and 30s ATLANTIC MONTHLY PRESS/TNSAdopting an old-fashioned approach, Madeleine Blais details the clothing Alice Marble wore on and o the court.

What should I be doing to reduce the risk? „ Joey T., Deland, Florida The “eld of cardio-oncology is relatively new, but its focus on preventing and managing the cardiac problems that childhood cancer survivors face as a result of their treatment is transforming their lives. That is so important because compared to the general population, these adults are 15 times more likely to develop congestive heart failure. Ongoing monitoring of your cardiovascular health and early intervention if problems arise is essential. But you can also help yourself enormously by making sure you eat a heart-healthy diet. (That's just as true for anyone who is looking to stay free of chronic conditions or those with a chronic disease, such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, diabetes or migraine, that increases cardiovascular disease [CVD] risk.) A study in BMC Medicine looked at former childhood cancer patients and concluded that the more adult survivors stuck with a healthy diet, the more protection against heart woes they had. Three diets provided protection. For women, the most protection came from the DASH diet; each 10-score increase in adherence was associated with a 15% lower risk of CVD. And sticking with the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (leading to the highest Healthy Eating Index-2015) resulted in a 12% reduction of women's risk. The Alternate Mediterranean Diet plan (boosted consumption of plant foods, monounsaturated fat, “sh, and reduced consumption of animal products and saturated fat) was associated with an 8% lower risk. Men showed less correlation between diet and CVD prevention, but there's no doubt it bene“ts everyone. Once more, the power of your dietary choices to help you live younger longer is crystal clear.

It's good to spiff it up regularly so that it does not get too dirty, but when it does, buy a commercial cleaner or make a paste of 3/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup warm water. Use a damp toothbrush and scrub onto the grout. Allow it to remain on the surface for several minutes and rinse well. Do not apply cleaners that contain chlorine or bleach on colored grout because they can remove the color. Put a sealer over the grout to prevent new stains.

He and his late wife used to travel all over the world spreading the word. I'm from a less conservative, more spiritual background. I attend an alldenominational church that accepts everyone. My views on politics are also different from his. He constantly quotes the Bible and believes I'll go to hell if I don't follow the word of God daily. I was baptized Pentecostal at a young age, but that is not something I believe anymore, and his constant preaching is exhausting. I am a strong woman, and I have voiced how I feel about this. He's the best man I've ever been with. He's kind, considerate, loving, helpful and loves my family. I am recovering from Guillain-Barre syndrome, and he has helped me walk, helped out in the business and has been so good to me. I am now mostly recovered, and everything would be perfect except for politics and religion. Is there any hope for us? „ Discordant in Colorado DEAR DISCORDANT: Successful relationships (and marriages) are based on communication, mutual respect and boundaries. This man may be saying you'll go to hell if you don't live the word of God daily „ I would love to know exactly what he means by that „ but if his quoting chapter and verse repeatedly makes you uncomfortable, living with him must be a different kind of hell. While some couples are able to negotiate around their political and religious differences, please remember these are two topics that cause many marriages to fail. It would be wonderful if you can work out a compromise. But unless this man can accept you for who you are and refrain from trying to change you, keep him as a friend and nothing more. DEAR ABBY: I'm a gay man who has been in a relationship with "Jake" for 42 years. We have had many dif“cult relationship challenges, but we have always stayed together and recently got married. Our current issue is the thermostat. Jake is cold when the temperature in the summer is set lower than 75 degrees. I suggest he use more covers or clothes to stay warm since I cannot do anything more than throw off all the covers and lie there sweating. He insists I'm being unreasonable for wanting to have a cooler bedroom. I know sleep experts recommend sleeping temperatures in the 60-degree range. I can deal with warmer temps than that, but 75 is hot! How can I communicate that he can cover up to be comfortable, while I cannot uncover any more? „ Hot in South Carolina DEAR HOT: You have already communicated rationally with your husband. Offer him the option of using a heating pad or a dual-control electric blanket to keep himself warm at night. The other option would be to sleep in separate bedrooms. You need your sleep, and so does he.

Feeling fitAUGUST 20, 2023YOURSUN.COMWHAT IS SWIMMERS ITCH? PAGE 7F SUN Charlotte€DeSoto€Sarasota By NOOR ADATIATHE DALLAS MORNING NEWS TNSDALLAS „ While it may feel like the heat wont ever come to an end, cooler weather should be on the horizon in the coming weeks and months. With that comes certain seasonal viruses, including another potential wave of COVID-19. Local doctors are warning of a potential tripledemicŽ this fall, consisting of the ” u, respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, and COVID-19. To combat these illnesses, infectious disease experts are recommending people „ especially high-risk and unvaccinated individuals „ consider vaccinating as a tool against severe disease. In addition to an anticipated fall virus season, COVID-19 saw a slight uptick this summer, including in North Texas, where hospitals have seen a rise in the number of infected patients over the last month. COVID-19 case numbers are also on the rise nationally, according to July data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Were not anywhere near where weve been at with some of the peaks in the past, but we are seeing a few more cases,Ž explained Dr. James Cutrell, an infectious disease expert at UT Southwestern. Heres what else you should know about the recent spike in COVID-19, the updated shot and what other tools are available to protect against viruses this fall:What to know about COVID-19 and the updated boosterMost of the current COVID-19 cases comprise of the XBB and XBB.1.5 subvariants, which are considered less severe versions of the original omicron variant. Omicron “ rst surged in early 2022 and wreaked havoc on hospitals across the country. The Food and Drug Administration recently approved of a new booster targeting these variants, but the vaccine is still pending authorization. Unlike the previous bivalent booster that targeted the original strain and the two contagious omicron subvariants, this new shot speci“ cally targets XBB, said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. Not only does the updated vaccine o er protection against the XBB variant circulating now, it also targets its closely related EG.5 subvariant, which is another descendant of omicron, Hotez added. While its unclear exactly when the updated booster will roll out, Hotez anticipates the vaccine should be available by early fall. But dont be surprised if by the end of August or “ rst week of September, we start hearing about it,Ž he said.Should you get the updated COVID-19 booster?While an uptick in COVID-19 cases isnt necessarily cause for panic, there are tools available that o er protection, Hotez said. [Cases] are still low, but they are coming up, and I am concerned enough that they will continue to go up that people really do need to take advantage of the XBB booster,Ž he said. People at high risk for severe complications should especially consider getting the updated COVID-19 shot. These include people over the age of 65, people with chronic heart and lung conditions, immunocompromised individuals, pregnant women, and individuals who live in nursing homes and care facilities. People who travel frequently should also more seriously consider getting the updated booster due to the sheer amount of people traveling on airplanes and trains, Hotez said. I think its important to emphasize that COVID is going up again, and you want to maximize your protection,Ž he said, adding that people are still at risk for long COVID. The previous booster o ered protection from infection for about two to three months and provided immunity against risk of severe disease and hospitalization for four to six months. Therefore, even if you got last years booster shot, its recommended to get the updated one this season due to waning immunity. If youre still on the fence about whether to get the updated COVID-19 vaccine this fall, Cutrell recommends assessing three criteria: whether you are immunocompromised, the risks of others around you and your own risk tolerance. I think the approach isnt a one-size-“ ts-all, but its about thinking through your own personal risk and those that are closest to you and that you interact with extensively on a daily basis,Ž he said.Where does the RSV vaccine stand?Adults over the age of 60 are eligible to receive the newly developed RSV vaccine. Cutrell advised that people in this age group, who are considered at higher risk for hospitalization to RSV, consult with their doctor before getting it. This respiratory illness, which spiked earlier than usual this year, usually resembles a cold in healthy people but can be life-threatening to the elderly as well as infants. In addition, the FDA recently approved of a drug called nirsevimab, which isnt a vaccine but rather a monoclonal antibody shot. While an mRNA vaccine stimulates an immune response to produce antibodies, this shot shortcuts that process and gives the antibody directly to infants, Hotez explained. The CDC recommends a dose of nirsevimab for all babies younger than eight months as they enter their “ rst RSV season this fall. Pregnant women, who are generally considered at higher risk for severe disease, are also in line for an RSV immunization as a way to protect their newborns. This vaccine is still pending approval, but research conducted by P“ zer found the vaccine was 82% e ective in preventing RSV in infants “ rst months of life. If you immunize women who are pregnant, then some of those passive antibodies will pass to their babies before theyre born, and will help protect them after they deliver,Ž Cutrell explained.Should you get the flu shot?Its advised for anyone 6 months of age and older to get the in” uenza shot every season, according to the CDC. The ” u had an earlier start than usual last year, and some experts think the respiratory illness could follow a similar pattern this fall. COVID has scrambled the timing of some of these other respiratory viruses, and so we think that in the past couple of years, weve seen a bit of an early ” u season,Ž Cutrell said. Cutrell recommends getting your ” u shot in September or early October. Additionally, getting the ” u shot and COVID-19 at the same time is considered acceptable and safe. From a practical, logistical standpoint, a lot of times, for people who dont go to the doctor that often, it may be most convenient to get them in that same visit,Ž he said.Fall virus season is approachingHeres how to protect against COVID, RSV and the flu ANDREW ANGELOV/SHUTTERSTOCKIn light of a possible tripledemic, doctors are suggesting older people consider getting the COVID-19 and u shots together, which is considered safe. In addition, adults over the age of 60 are eligible to receive the newly developed RSV vaccine and should talk to their doctor before getting it. Dont be surprised if by the end of August or rst week of September, we start hearing about it.ŽDr. James Cutrell infectious disease expert, about a new COVID-19 booster d o=

For some, it also means an unpleasant skin irritation: swimmers itch. Swimmers itch, also called cercarial dermatitis, is a rash that can occur after you go swimming or wading outdoors. Its most common after being in freshwater lakes and ponds, but you can get it in saltwater too. There is no risk of contracting swimmers itch from a well maintained and chlorinated swimming pool, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimmers itch usually is caused by a reaction to tiny parasites in the water that burrow into your skin while youre swimming or wading in warm, calm water. Swimmers itch is not contagious from person to person. The parasites cant survive in people, so they soon die. SYMPTOMS Swimmers itch symptoms include an itchy rash that looks like pimples or blisters. Symptoms may begin within minutes or as long as two days after swimming or wading in contaminated water. Usually, the rash aects skin thats not covered by swimsuits, wetsuits or waders. Your sensitivity to swimmers itch can increase each time youre exposed to the parasites that cause it. The condition can look like poison ivy rash and other skin conditions. Your healthcare professional likely will diagnose swimmers itch by looking at your skin and talking with you about your activities and symptoms. There are no speci“c tests to diagnose swimmers itch. PREVENTION Follow these tips to avoid swimmers itch: € Choose swimming spots carefully. Avoid being in water near the shore where swimmers itch is a known problem or where signs have been posted warning of the risk. Also avoid being in marshy areas where snails often are found. € Rinse after swimming. Rinse exposed skin with clean water right after leaving the water. Then dry the skin with a towel. € Skip the breadcrumbs.Dont feed birds on piers or near swimming areas. TREATMENT Typically, no treatment is required, and the condition clears up on its own within a week. These tips might help reduce the itch: € Apply a corticosteroid cream or an anti-itch lotion, such as those that contain calamine. € Take an oral nonprescription antihistamine (Benadryl) or one with loratadine (Alavert, Claritin, others). The latter type causes less sleepiness than Benadryl. € Avoiding scratching the rash. € Cover aected areas with a clean, damp washcloth. € Soak in a bath sprinkled with Epsom salts, baking soda or an oatmeal-based bath product (Aveeno, others). € Apply a paste of baking soda and water to the aected skin. If the itching is severe, your health care professional may recommend prescription-strength lotions or creams.What is swimmers itch?Its most common after being in fresh lakes and ponds DREAMSTIME/TNSSwimmers itch, also called cercarial dermatitis, is a rash that can occur after you go swimming or wading outdoors.

PAGE 8F SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com By PAT EATONROBB ASSOCIATED PRESSHAMDEN, Conn. „ Santino Iamunno was born without most of his right hand, and the 11-year-old tends to keep that hand in his pocket when around new people, just to avoid the questions. But thats not something he worries about at Camp No Limits, where all the young campers are dealing with limb loss or limb dierences. It feels nice because I dont have to, like, explain what happened that often,Ž Santino said. Because outside of camp, Ill get a lot of questions like, What happened? And I mean, Ill explain it to them. But here, its better here, because I dont have to.Ž Founded in 2004, Camp No Limits holds sessions in Maine, Missouri, Maryland, Florida, Idaho, Arizona, Texas, California and a special one in Connecticut, where the counselors are physical and occupational therapy students at Quinnipiac University, a private liberal arts school with about 3,000 undergraduate students. At the four-day program, campers stay in the Quinnipiac dorms, attend physical therapy sessions, learn about prosthetics and other equipment and are taught life hacks such as how to tie their shoes, put their hair in a ponytail or climb stairs. They also can challenge themselves physically with activities such as learning or relearning how to ride a bicycle and trying out sled hockey. Jeni Rhodes 8-year-old daughter Anya lost her left leg to cancer. She said seeing Anya push herself at camp to overcome obstacles and experience joy again has been special. She was able to get on a bike today and for the “rst time since her amputation last year,Ž Rhodes said. So its a big opportunity not only to just be around other people and dierences, but also for her to try new things.Ž CREATING BONDS Many of the campers are accompanied by parents and siblings who also stay overnight, participate in some of the activities and create bonds with other families. Rosanne Keep, of North Wales, Pennsylvania, came with her 12-year-old daughter Mariam, who was born with a congenital condition that led to the amputation of her right foot in January. She said the opportunity to meet other kids with limb dierences and their families has been good for both her daughter and her. There are other kids out there, but depending on what circles you travel in, you just dont see them that often,Ž Rosanne Keep said. So its a good opportunity for her to meet some other kids, talk about, you know, what theyre going through, and also just as parents to meet other parents who are facing the same diculties. Its just good mentally.Ž The camps are staed with physical and occupational therapists, prosthetists and adult amputee mentors. Quinnipiacs camp is also a learning experience for the student counselors. Its the only such partnership Camp No Limits has with a university. And the Quinnipiac camp gets visits each year from prosthetist students from the University of Hartford, so they can also both teach and learn from the kids. I love that were able to do this connection,Ž said Mary Leighton, a physical therapist and the camps founder and executive director. When I was in school, we really had a very limited amount of time that was spent discussing amputees or individuals with limb dierences.Ž The camp experience is much more than just the practical application of what the students have been learning in the classroom, said Maria Cusson, a clinical associate professor of physical therapy at Quinnipiac. That personal connection, learning the stories of the campers, helping, you know, helping these kids and “nding out who they are helps (the counselors) develop as students,Ž Cusson said. It is more impactful than you can possibly imagine.Ž Occupational therapy student Tessa Maloney, one of the camps student leaders, said she had a career epiphany while working as a counselor. She was watching the camp talent show when a 16-year-old boy she had been working with took the stage. With the Olympic theme playing in the background, the teen, who had recently lost most of one leg to cancer, proceeded to climb a ”ight of stairs. That brought tears to Tessas eyes and convinced her that she should make a career of helping kids with limb dierences. That was such a big step for him,Ž she said. He couldnt do that before he came to camp. That was something that he worked on while he was here, and he felt con“dent enough in that new ability to do it in front of everyone. And it was just really inspiring.ŽCamp for kids with limb differences also helps train studentsIts staffed with physical and occupational therapists and adult amputee mentors Camper Conor Dwyer participates in an obstacle course during Camp No Limits at Quinnipiac University on July 14 in Hamden, Conn.

While there are many ways to do this, ultimately you should choose what makes you feel safe and happy. PERSONALIZE YOUR SPACEAdding personal touches through décor and sentimental items is an effective way to infuse your personality and create a sense of familiarity in your new home. Hang family photos, display cherished mementos and incorporate artwork or decorations that reflect your style and interests. Hanging art is a great first step, according to Moving. com. Research reveals that looking at art reduces stress and makes people happy. Whats more, the art you own speaks to your style and taste. Putting it up helps personalize your space and make you feel more at home. When you surround yourself with objects that hold sentimental value, you can quickly establish an emotional connection with your new space. GET ORGANIZEDIts tempting to unpack all your boxes as quickly as possible and put the stress of moving behind you. However, taking time to figure out how you want to organize your life can turn your new house into a home that makes you happy for years to come. Think about how you want to organize the pantry, closets, drawers, the garage or the storage shed. If youre a reader, fill your shelves with books so that you can immediately see those familiar titles and give yourself something to relax with right away. Enjoy the process of deciding how you want to sort the books on your shelf. Set up your entertainment center so that everything is the way you want it „ including screens facing the way you want, cords being organized and power outlets being easy to access.COZY ATMOSPHEREFocus on creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere that makes you and your family feel relaxed and at ease. Incorporate cozy textures such as soft blankets, plush rugs and comfortable pillows to make your living spaces feel warm and welcoming. Consider using scents like candles, essential oils or fresh flowers to enhance the sensory experience and evoke positive emotions in your home. Create lighting that makes you happy, whether that is warm lighting with lamps and candles or string lights that add a soft and comforting ambiance. ENGAGEGet involved in the community and meet your neighbors. Attend local events, join community groups or clubs and take advantage of neighborhood amenities. Engaging with others and participating in activities that align with your interests can help establish social connections and create a support network within your new community. If youre not ready to dive in yet „ take time to sit on your front porch and wave to neighbors. © ADOBE STOCK Bill of LadingIf you hire professional movers to help you move to your new home, chances are youll sign a bill of lading. It is a legal document that serves as a contract between you and the movers and acts as a receipt. It includes such things as the date of the move, the addresses of the old and new homes, the list of items being transported and any special instructions or requests, including the agreed-upon terms and conditions.

CallLarry 844-935-0264Ext.301 Email:lking@thepreserveorida.com JOINOURTEAM Getting Out There After GraduatingKickstarting a career can be harder than securing your degreeGraduating from college affords aspiring young professionals a wealth of knowledge, but oftentimes they have little real-world experience. That can make securing their first job quite difficult. Heres how to make smart preparations to help smooth the way.BEFORE APPLYINGYouve already marked quite an achievement, simply by staying the course through to a hard-earned graduation ceremony. Its a major accomplishment, but one we often simply dont have time to enjoy in any extended way. After all, there are bills to pay now „ and perhaps even a student loan to address. Thats why its best to start early, notifying hiring managers that youre applying while still completing your coursework. Be sure to inform them of your planned graduation date. If you wait until then, there could be difficult new financial pressures. Some job openings will draw a large number of other candidates, so you may not immediately be able to secure that coveted first job. BEST FOOT FORWARDTake advantage of internship opportunities while still in school, and lean on your network of family, friends, professors and early professional contacts in order to discover new job openings. Their recommendations might help you secure an opportunity you wouldnt have gotten with a cold-call application. Depending on the position, you may be asked to apply with a simple resume or a curriculum vitae. Both include information on your experience and skill set, but in different formats. Resumes are limited to one page and focus on personal skills. A CV, on the other hand, is more in-depth and often stretches to multiple pages. Theyre typically required in the educational, medical or research fields. Youll include a broader spectrum of professional information, including education, certificates and affiliations. WHAT TO AVOIDMake sure you follow the required application format. Resume-based openings are usually handled by overwhelmed hiring managers who might not have time for an initial deep read on your application. So, make sure all pertinent information is prominently di splayed „ and keep your resume short and sweet. Read and re-read to make sure there are no spelling or grammatical mishaps, since thats the quickest way for an applicant to get passed over. Prospective employers will assume you are inattentive if you cant submit an application free of mistakes. © ADOBE STOCK

We have four children (ages 1, 3, 4 and 6), and we both work full-time. However, I pull 90% of the weight at home. I do the majority of household chores and much of the parenting. Shes an awesome mom and owns the morning routine and the majority of the care for our 1-year-old, but other than that, I do everything. Shes an elementary school teacher and she goes to bed at 7:30 each night after the kids go down. When I ask her why, she says its because she has to serve others at work.When she gets home, she complains endlessly about her job and makes me feel guilty, as though I force her to have one. When we moved to our current home, we agreed she needed to teach so our kids could go to school in the district. She admits she knows my desire is simply to spend more time with her. We have had a babysitter only four times in six years. Please give me some advice. „ Dissatis“ed in AlabamaDEAR DISSATISFIED: You and your wife both have busy lives, but she seems to have forgotten that its also important to have a relationship with you. As you stated, you mutually agreed to take on this heavy load for a reason „ your childrens education. Things will not improve without compromise. A licensed marriage and family therapist may be able to help the two of you arrive at one. Your physician should be able to refer you to one. DEAR ABBY: I have two grandkids „ a 4-yearold granddaughter, Emily,Ž and a 2-yearold grandson, Earl.Ž My husband is not blood-related to them. He treats Emily like a princess, but treats Earl badly. She can do no wrong; he can do no right. Anytime I have them both over, my husband and I have huge “ghts because of how he disciplines and ignores my grandson. He doesnt show Earl any of the love he shows my granddaughter. I have tried talking to him about it, and he says, Why cant you get it through your head? I dont LIKE boys.Ž When I told him it hurts me, he just rolled his eyes. I see my options as not having my grandson over or ending my marriage. Im now very resentful. What should I do? „ Troubled Grandma in MichiganDEAR GRANDMA: Could your husband be going through a late case of the terrible twos? Has he explained the reason for his dislike of little boys? Its peculiar since, at such a tender age, Earl hasnt been in the picture long enough to have offended anyone. If your husband cant restrain himself around Earl, he should absent himself when Earl visits Granny. Or, tell your husband he must either manage an attitude adjustment or pack his bags. I cant imagine how, if Earls parents are aware of this, they allow it to continue.Couples busy schedule doesnt include any alone time DEAR ABBYAdvice Columnist C RYPT OG RAM S JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9.

PAGE 10 SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | The Daily Sun | www.yoursun.com ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19). Maybe you dont always do the wise thing, but you always have the wisdom inside you to tap into when you choose to. All you have to do is ask and listen. If you dont hear it, make no decision and ask again later. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20). Joyful moments will involve helping, serving and entertaining others. Youre still trying to give more than you get, but your generosity keeps repaying you exponentially, so its an impossible thing to accomplish. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 21). Being powerful, there is no need to enact power. You will know the gentle spirit that animates the strong. And you will recognize when the most heroic move is not to make one. CANCER (JUNE 22-JULY 22). Genuine people can be awkward and say all the wrong things, but you feel their intention, which inspires trust. Keep asking, What is underneath this? What is the feeling Im getting?Ž and you wont go wrong. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22). The game has changed. Whatever worked the last time will be less eective this time, if it works at all. Try novel strategies. Many will be ineffective, but one will give you results beyond your hopes. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22). Once you describe your problem in detail, youll be halfway to solving it. And if youre talking it through with someone as astute and curious as you, youll be even further along. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23). You picture the outcome you want repeatedly because you think if you can get it right in your imagination, you can get it right in real life, too. This is true. Also, take action because reality informs the fantasy. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 21). Your head and heart havent always wanted the same thing, so you recognize how smooth and easy life gets when these two are aligned like they are today. Every move brings you closer to your goal. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21). Some unwanted habits can be casually tossed aside, and others need to be ejected with great force. Youll do what it takes, adjusting your eorts until you have the routine that best supports the person you want to be. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19). People who ask for your opinion may want something else entirely, like validation for the choice they already made. Go carefully into these types of social traps. Its probably not worth making waves over. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18). Expect interruptions and distractions to get you o schedule. You may not be on time, but youll be on purpose. Stay cool, calm and collected; straying from the original plan will actually be lucky for you. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20). Youre more charismatic than you know and could attract an uncomfortable amount of attention if youre not careful how you wield this gift. You want to matter to someone, not become their main preoccupation. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (AUG. 20). New people coming into your life will contribute signi“cantly to your happiness and high energy. A professional leap will bring recognition and the ability to help family. Your love and generosity will turn a plot around. More highlights: Upgrades will have you getting around in style. Youll explore your special connection to the natural world. Gemini and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 29, 10 , 28 and 50. HOROSCOPE DEAR HELOISE: This is regarding the person who wrote in asking about how to care for the new ”ooring they had installed in their kitchen and elsewhere. The easiest way to “nd out how to clean your new ”oors is by calling the business that you bought them from. Now, if they dont know, your next step is to look online for the brand of ”ooring you bought. Go to that manufacturers website to learn more, or even email them. Yes, new ”ooring is tough and usually well-made, but you really want to get all the facts. Our hardwood ”oor installer gave us a bottle of the appropriate cleaner to use as well as the necessary tools. His word of caution was to use it sparingly. If the ”oor looks cloudy or you see a residue, then you have used way too much product. We learned that new ”ooring care is completely different from older ways of doing it. But its better to do it right and avoid costly damages. New ”ooring, like many things, are an investment and are not cheap. „ Mary Anderson, Vancouver, Washington DEAR HELOISE: Instead of spending money on a mani-pedi, most nail salons are happy just to do a color change on “ngers and/or toes. I can get three color changes for the price of one full pedicure nowadays! „ Kathy, San Antonio DEAR HELOISE: Two years ago, I remodeled my kitchen with new vinyl ”oors, cabinets, countertops, plumbing, etc. I didnt want to line my new cabinets and drawers with shelf paper, as I have done for over 50 years, so I went to a home improvement store and bought some thin indoor/outdoor carpet. I lined all but two shelves and all of my drawers with it. Its wonderful! I used some leftover vinyl ”ooring to line one shelf (for oily things like syrup, cooking oil, etc.) and to line the space under my kitchen sink (and bathroom sink). I sure wish I would have thought about doing this years ago. It doesnt slide around and stays put. „ Raelyn Morgan, Gardena, California DEAR HELOISE: Thanks for the tilecleaning lesson in your recent column, as weve been using bleach to get rid of black buildup on our tiles. Regarding the hint about using potato chip cans for “rst aid/sewing kits, I recommend an empty tennis ball container instead. None of the sides are oily, and its see-through. Its become my preference for any of our storage containers now „ instant inventory!

S. Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1874, when I was incorporated in Baltimore as the American District Telegraph company. I built the first security system network for homes, and in my early years, I employed men to make the rounds of customer homes each night, checking for trouble. I pioneered always-on central monitoring systems, automated burglar systems and automated fire alarm systems. Today, with a recent market value near $6 billion and more than 17,000 staffers, I serve more than 6 million customers. Im growing in the arena of residential solar energy, too, via my Sunpro business. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. to live. Rather than move into a smaller, cheaper home, youd probably want at least a similar place „ and if your home rose sharply in value, other homes in your area probably did, too. Will you just trade your current mortgage for another? If youre thinking of your home as part of your investment portfolio and you need to get some cash out of it, that can be hard, too. Selling a home can take months „ and you may not get the price you want, especially if its a buyers market. You cant just sell a fifth of your home, either, if you need money but dont want to move. You could borrow against it, but then youd have more debt. Investments in the stock market are likely to grow faster than real estate. The stock market has averaged annual gains of around 10% over long periods. Stocks are also more liquid; if you need cash, you can sell some shares of stock without taking on debt. So go ahead and own a home, and enjoy it. But to more effectively build wealth, consider alternatives such as the stock market.The Motley Fool TakeA 7.8% Dividend To ConsiderVerizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) recently reported mixed second-quarter results. Net income fell 10% year over year and revenue slipped 3.5%. But with some help from pricing increases, the companys wireless segment revenue grew 3.8%, and the broadband business is showing potential. Progress for Verizons fixed wireless service was particularly strong, and it looks like theres room for continued expansion. Through high-speed 5G offerings for homes and businesses, Verizon has been able to make its broadband services available in areas that are otherwise dominated by regional monopoly providers of wired internet. By the end of 2025, it expects to have between 4 million and 5 million fixed wireless subscribers „ up from its current base of 2.3 million. A key attraction for investors is the companys dividend, which recently yielded a fat 7.8%. Verizon faces competition and is carrying a lot of debt, but its also generating billions of dollars in free cash flow that can help pay down debt while supporting its dividend. The stock also seems undervalued, with a recent forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio around 7.1 „ well below its fiveyear average of 10.6. (The Motley Fool has recommended Verizon Communications.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentA Penny Stock WinMy dumbest investment move happened in 1975, when I overheard a conversation between two friends about a promising stock that was going to be big.Ž I didnt have any money, so I didnt buy any shares. It was Apple Computer. Fast-forward to 1995, when another friend told me about a promising stock. Remembering my missed opportunity, I bought 300 shares at $0.34 apiece, despite a broker warning me that it was a penny stockŽ and therefore a bad investment. That stake was worth nearly $5,000 some five years later. „ P.S., online The Fool Responds: You did well, but your broker was right to warn you about penny stocks „ those trading for less than about $5 per share. Theyre sometimes referred to as microcaps,Ž as they often have market values less than $300 million, or even nanocaps,Ž if theyre valued below $50 million. Penny stocks are notoriously risky and can often be easily manipulated by scammers. Researchers studying the performance from 2001 to 2010 of more than 10,000 over-the-counter (OTCŽ) stocks, most of which were penny stocks, found that the median annual return was ... negative 37%. Yikes! You were lucky to end up with a solid gain. Although you missed out on Apple, remember that no one knew then how big Apple would grow „ and there were periods between then and now when it didnt look promising at all. The Biggest BrandsQWhat are the worlds biggest brands? „ S.G., Columbus, IndianaADifferent organizations publish rankings of brand values regularly, with results that can vary due to different approaches and weightings. According to Interbrand, one well-respected brand consultancy, these were the Top 10 global brands of 2022 and their values: 1) Apple, $482 billion; 2) Microsoft, $278 billion; 3) Amazon, $275 billion; 4) Google, $252 billion; 5) Samsung, $88 billion; 6) Toyota, $60 billion; 7) Coca-Cola, $57.5 billion; 8) Mercedes-Benz, $56 billion; 9) Disney, $50 billion; 10) Nike, $50 billion. Its interesting to see how rankings change over time. In Interbrands 2022 list, for example, Instagrams brand value of $36.5 billion was up 14% year over year, while Facebooks $34.5 billion value was down 5%. ***QIf I own 1% of a companys stock and it earns $100 million, do I receive 1% of that „ $1 million? „ D.E., Erie, PennsylvaniaANot exactly. If you own shares of a public company, you do own a portion of it „ typically a very small one, though. (For example, if you own 600 shares of Boeing, thats only a tiny piece of the roughly 600 million shares it recently had outstanding.) When companies report their earnings, they dont distribute them all immediately to shareholders. Instead, they may spend some to further their growth „ by hiring more workers or buying more advertising, perhaps „ or to pay down debt, among other options. Many companies will reward shareholders by paying some of their earnings out as dividends, or by repurchasing (essentially retiring) some shares, which makes existing shares more valuable. Even if a company reinvests all its earnings in growth, shareholders can profit „ because as the business becomes more valuable, so, typically, does its stock.Want more information about stocks?

Yes, homes have value and money can be made when theyre sold, but you shouldnt count on that. Here are some things to think about regarding homes and investments. For starters, it typically takes a long time to build wealth with real estate. There certainly have been times when property values have risen sharply, but in general, over the long run, homes dont appreciate rapidly. For example, over the 35 years from January 1988 to January 2023, the S&P/Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index averaged annual gains of 4.2%, while the S&P 500 index of the biggest stocks in the American market averaged gains of 8.2%. But lets imagine that your home is suddenly worth much more. Then what? You might sell it for a big gain, but youd still need a place © 2023 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

NATIONAL NEWS ADAMS PUBLISHING GROUP | SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | 1BOBBY CAINA CALVANAssociated PressLAHAINA, Hawaii „ The days of waiting have become harder and harder as the odds grow longer and longer, but Kevin Baclig remains undeterred in his search for his wife and her parents, missing since Aug. 8 when a wildfire engulfed and flattened the Hawaiian town of Lahaina. He has gone looking from one shelter to another, hoping strangers might recognize the faces on the flyers he brings with him. Baclig, 30, has driven back and forth to Lahaina, desperately scouting for anything that might lead him to his wife, Angelica, and her parents, Joel and Adela Villegas. Six other relatives who lived next door also remain unaccounted for. Im not going to give up until I see them,Ž he said. Of course Im hoping to find them alive. ... What else can I do?Ž Even as he tries to sound optimistic, his voice is subdued. Ive been searching and searching „ in Lahaina, everywhere,Ž Baclig said, speaking in Ilocano, a dialect of the northern Philippines. The blaze took scores of lives and destroyed hundreds of homes, including the house Bacligs family bought three years ago on Kopili Street, about a 15-minute walk to historic Front Street, which was littered with burned-out vehicles after the fire. The remains of 114 people have been found, most of them yet to be identified. And Hawaii Gov. Josh Green has said the death toll will rise for the foreseeable future as the painstaking search for remains continues in the heaps of rubble and ash in Lahaina, a seaside community of 12,000 and a tourist hotspot on Maui. Officials acknowledge they dont have a firm number on the missing. Many initially listed as unaccounted for have since been located. Police Chief John Pelletier said earlier in the week that authorities will do their best to track down the missing. But I cant promise that were gonna get them all,Ž he said. On the day before the fire, Poomaikai Estores-Losano, a 28-year-old father of two, wished aloha to his ohana, the Hawaiian word for family. Another beautiful day in Hawaii,Ž he wrote on Facebook, ending his post by urging his circle to have fun, enjoy,Ž and to never be unhappy and grumpy.Ž He is among the missing. His family has scoured the island looking for him, checking hospitals and shelters. Without a car, Estores-Losano would have had to outrun the fire and smoke. We dont want him to think we stopped looking for him,Ž said Kuulei Barut, who last spoke to her brother the day before he went missing.ASSOCIATED PRESSWild re damage is shown, Friday, Aug. 11, 2023, in Lahaina, Hawaii.Hope is hard to let go after Maui fire ASSOCIATED PRESSABUJA, Nigeria „ Business has vanished at Kingsley Odafes clothing shop in Nigerias capital, forcing him to lay off three employees. One culprit for his troubles stands out: The U.S. dollars strength against the Nigerian currency, the naira, has pushed the price of garments and other foreign goods beyond the reach of local consumers. A bag of imported clothes costs three times what it did two years ago. The price these days is running around 350,000 naira, or $450. There are no sales anymore because people have to eat first before thinking of buying clothes,Ž Odafe said. Across the developing world, many countries are fed up with Americas dominance of the global financial system „ especially the power of the dollar. They will air their grievances next week as the BRICS bloc of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa meet with other emerging market countries in Johannesburg, South Africa. But griping about King Dollar is easier than actually deposing the de facto world currency. The dollar is by far the mostused currency in global business and has shrugged off past challenges to its preeminence. Despite repeated talk of the BRICS countries rolling out their own currency, no concrete proposals have emerged in the run-up to the summit starting Tuesday. Emerging economies have, however, discussed expanding trade in their own currencies to reduce their reliance on the buck. At a meeting of BRICS foreign ministers in June, South Africas Naledi Pandor said the blocs New Development Bank will seek alternatives to the current internationally traded currenciesŽ „ a euphemism for the dollar. Pandor was sitting alongside Russias Sergey Lavrov and Chinas Ma Zhaoxu „ representatives of two countries that are especially eager to weaken Americas international financial clout. The BRICS grouping dates to 2009. Originally, it was just BRIC, a term coined by Goldman Sachs economist Jim ONeill to refer to the rising economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China. South Africa joined in 2010, adding the SŽ to the name.

APG NATIONAL NEWS 2 | SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023KEN MILLERAssociated PressOKLAHOMA CITY „ The summer of 2023 may be drawing to a close „ but the extreme heat is not: More record-shattering temperatures „ this time across Texas „ are expected Saturday and Sunday as the U.S. continues to bake. Highs of 109 degrees Fahrenheit (42.8 degrees Celsius) forecast for Saturday and 110 F (43.3 C) on Sunday in Dallas would break the current record of 107 F (41.7 C) each day, both set in 2011, and would come after a high of 109 F (42.8 C) on Thursday broke a record of 107 F set in 1951, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Bradshaw. There really is no relief in sight, there is some hint by the end of August, maybe Labor Day, high temperatures will begin to fall below 100,Ž Bradshaw said. Its possible to see 100-degree-plus temperatures through the first half of September, at least off and on.Ž The heat wave causing misery in Texas this weekend is just the latest to punish the U.S. this year. Scientists have long warned that climate change, driven by the burning of fossil fuels, by deforestation and by certain agricultural practices, will lead to more and prolonged bouts of extreme weather including hotter temperatures. The entire globe has simmered to record heat both in June and July. And if thats not enough, smoke from wildfires, floods and droughts have caused problems globally. Just days ago, daily high temperatures in the Pacific Northwest broke records. At Portland International Airport, the daily high temperature Monday of 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42.2 Celsius) broke the previous daily record of 102 degrees (38.9 C), the National Weather Service said. It was also the first time in 130 years of recorded weather that Seattle had three days in a row with lows of 67 degrees (19.4 C) or warmer. Last month, the Phoenix area broiled under a record-setting 31 days of daily high temperatures of 110 F (43.4 C) or above. The historic heat began blasting the region in June, stretching from Texas across New Mexico and Arizona and into Californias desert. The previous record was 18 straight days, set in 1974. In July, the continental United States set a record for overnight warmth, providing little relief from daytime heat for people, animals, plants and the electric grid, meteorologists said. Meanwhile, in Waco, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) south of Dallas, there has been no rainfall for a record-tying 49 straight days, since only a trace amount on July 1. Theres no sign thats going to change anytime soon ... Waco is on track to be driest summer on record,Ž Bradshaw said. In Oklahoma City, the high is expected to reach 106 F (41.1 C) degrees, tying a record set in 1934 and in Topeka, Kansas, the high is forecast to reach 108 F (42.2 C), one degree shy of the record set in 1936.Record-setting temperatures forecast in Dallas as heat wave bakes U.S. HILARY Honolulu 86/73 Hilo 84/72 Anchorage 61/51 Fairbanks 53/48 Juneau 63/53 Monterrey 98/72 Chihuahua 94/67 Los Angeles 80/66 Washington 92/72 New York 86/71 Atlanta 94/74 Detroit 88/71 Houston 106/80 Kansas City 106/76 Minneapolis 84/65 El Paso 100/75 Denver 97/70 San Francisco 79/65 Seattle 85/55 Port Charlotte 88/76 Knoxville 90/68 Greensboro 90/70 Madison 92/66 Bozeman 63/56 Nampa 75/67 Toronto 85/67 Montreal 81/66 Winnipeg 74/54NATIONAL (for the 48 contiguous states)INTERNATIONALNATIONAL FORECAST In the digital e-edition, you can click anywhere on the US map to get up-to-date forecasts, radar, MinuteCast® and more.NATIONAL CITIES TODAY INTERNATIONAL CITIES-10s-0s0s10s20s30s40s50s60s70s80s90s100s110sShowersT-stormsRainFlurriesSnowIce Cold frontWarm frontStationary frontWEATHER HISTORYWEATHER TRIVIA’City Hi Lo W UV AQCity Hi Lo W UV AQCity Hi Lo W UV AQCity Hi Lo W UV AQCity Hi Lo W UV AQ City Hi Lo W Hi Lo W City Hi Lo W Hi Lo WWeather ( W ): s -sunny, pc -partly cloudy, c -cloudy, sh -showers, t -thunderstorms, r -rain, sf -snow ”urries, sn -snow, i -ice.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | 3 Hilary drops to Category 1 hurricane as Mexico and Calif. brace for storms impactCABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico „ Hurricane Hilary is roaring toward Mexicos Baja California peninsula as a downgraded Category 1 hurricane thats still likely to bring catastrophicŽ flooding to the region and cross into the southwest U.S. as a tropical storm. Meteorologists are warning that despite the hurricanes weakening, the storms speed had accelerated Saturday en route to an expect night landfall on Mexicos coast. Forecasters said the storm is still expected to enter the history books as the first tropical storm to hit Southern California in 84 years, and bring along high winds, flash floods, mudslides, isolated tornadoes, and widespread power outages. Canadian firefighters wage epic battle to save communities after mass evacuationsVANCOUVER, British Columbia „ Firefighters battling wildfires in western Canada have received help from reinforcements and milder weather, after the nations worst fire season on record destroyed structures, fouled the air with thick smoke and prompted the evacuation of tens of thousands of residents. But the firefighters were nowhere close to declaring victory Saturday, especially with drier and windier weather forecast for the coming days. No deaths have been reported. Officials say a majority of residents have evacuated Yellowknife, the Northwest Territories capital, and firefighters have kept a wildfire 6 miles from the city. British Columbia Premier David Eby has declared an emergency for the entire province, where more than 30,000 people are under evacuation orders due to encroaching fires.Ecuadorians choosing a new president amid violence that may scare away votersGUAYAQUIL, Ecuador „ More than 100,000 police and soldiers have taken up positions to protect people voting for Ecuadors next president.

Candidate Fernando Villavicencio was assassinated Aug. 9 as he left a campaign rally in Quito, the capital of the once calm South American country. The killing heightened peoples fears of spending time outside their homes. They fear becoming victims of robberies, kidnappings, extortions, homicides or any of the other crimes that have become commonplace.Ga. made it easier for parents to challenge library books. Almost no one has done soCUMMING, Ga. „ Georgia Republican lawmakers passed a law to make it easier to challenge school library books as inappropriate, but few people are using it. The Associated Press finds at least 15 large Georgia school districts say they have received no demands to remove books under the law, which took effect Jan. 1. One element reducing complaints is the Georgia laws requirement that only parents of current students can challenge books. AROUND THE WORLDNATION & WORLD ASSOCIATED PRESSDES MOINES, Iowa „ The loop Donald Trumps private jet made above the Iowa State Fair before his visit last weekend was more than just a gesture to the hundreds of supporters „ and a few rival candidates „ on the ground. It was a reminder that the four-time indicted former president casts a Boeing 757-sized shadow over the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. Thats where agreement about Trump seems to end. With less than five months before Iowans cast the first votes in the GOP contest, conversations with more than 40 Republicans at the time-honored presidential campaign ritual suggest the party is far from unified on much of anything else. Most voters say that until the winter chill sets in, theyre keeping an open mind, honoring the states tradition of vetting all candidates. Still, many GOP voters say they cant help but weigh their intense feelings about Trump as they consider their choices. In line to view the life-sized cow sculpted from butter, around booths selling deep-fried Twinkies and Oreos and throughout this annual tribute to Midwestern agriculture, some Republicans who plan to attend the Jan. 15 caucuses said they will support Trump even if hes a convicted felon. Others are just as adamant that the time has come to pivot from the figure who reshaped their party. Many are conflicted, yearning to turn the page but not disowning the former president. They like what he did in office and support his policy priorities „ and yet they worry that what they view largely as political persecution could hobble him both as the Republican nominee and as president. President Trump „ hes just got a lot of distractions, and you know his bedside manners not good,Ž said Des Moines Republican Frank Miller, who was excited about the candidates he heard from at a barbecue stop near the animal barns. Theres a lot of people in this country that think thats more important than the policy,Ž added Miller, who works for an insurance company and is undecided on whom hell support. Im not one of those.Ž Loyalty to Trump runs deep in Iowa, a state he comfortably carried twice and where he is the heavy favorite in early polls for the Republican caucuses. Still, its apparent from talking to voters that already-complicated assessments of Trump could shift during months of televised debates, relentless advertising and more intense campaigning „ never mind court proceedings in the series of criminal indictments he faces from New York to Florida. And GOP voters in this predominantly white, largely rural state are paying attention.Trump looms large over Iowa State Fair, but many GOP voters mulling their caucus choicesASSOCIATED PRESSMEDICAL LAKE, Wash. „ A wind-driven wildfire in eastern Washington state has destroyed at least 185 structures, closed a major highway and left one person dead, authorities said Saturday. The blaze began shortly after midday Friday on the west side of Medical Lake, about 15 miles west of Spokane, and then expanded, Washington State Department of Natural Resources spokesperson Isabelle Hoygaard said. It grew to nearly 15 square miles by Saturday morning, with zero containment. That remained the case Saturday evening. Officials didnt expect to have new size estimates until Sunday morning, she said. The burned structures were a mix of homes and outbuildings. Evacuations were ordered for the town as winds blew the flames southward, Hoygaard said. The evacuations were extended Saturday evening southeast to the town of Tyler, she said. Among those evacuated were the parents of Spokane City Councilman Zack Zappone. They were driving into Spokane when they got alerts on their phone that there were ... evacuations at their house,Ž Zappone told The Associated Press in a phone interview Saturday. They went back to get their dogs. My stepmom said it was a giant cloud of smoke and darkness. Embers were falling from the sky. She was having trouble breathing.Ž The fire swept through the neighborhood soon after they left, destroying his parents home and his uncles home, just two houses away. Zappone said his parents had lived there since 2003 and had just paid it off last year. Its shocking,Ž Zappone said. Im just in disbelief.Ž The blaze burned through the south side of the town and then jumped Interstate 90 on Friday night, forcing its closure, Hoygaard said. The major east-west thoroughfare remained closed in both directions Saturday evening. The fire is burning on both sides of the highway,Ž the Washington state Department of Transportation said on its webpage.1 dead, 185 structures destroyed in Wash. wildfire APG NATIONAL NEWSASSOCIATED PRESSRepublican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump waves to supporters as he boards his plane after a visit to the Iowa State Fair, Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023, in Des Moines, Iowa.

DAVID A. LIEB AND KAVISH HARJAIAssociated PressJoplin officials say they have big plans for $13.8 million of pandemic relief funds the tornado-ravaged southwestern Missouri city received under a two-year-old federal law. Yet the latest federal records show none of the money has been spent „ or even budgeted. In fact, about 6,300 cities and counties „ nearly 1 in 4 nationwide „ reported no expenditures as of this spring, according to an Associated Press analysis of data released by the U.S. Treasury Department. About 5,100 of those listed no projects „ either planned or underway. So what gives? Is the money not needed? Are cities just sitting on it? Local and federal officials told the AP in interviews that the publicly available data is misleading „ pockmarked by differing interpretations over exactly what must be reported, lagging in timeliness and failing to account for some preliminary planning. Critics contend its an indication of a flawed pandemic response. Federal officials estimate that governments have spending commitments for more than 80% of the funds, even if thats hard to tell from their reporting requirements. Joplin, for example, plans to spend its pandemic aid on housing projects, high-speed internet, streets, a bicycle park, public safety equipment and more. The City Council approved the plan last month. But it wont show up on federal reports until October. The city, which was devastated in 2011 by one of the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history, took a deliberate approach with its pandemic aid to develop really transformational projects,Ž said Leslie Haase, the citys finance director. Over the past couple years, it leveraged the pandemic aid to win millions of additional dollars of state grants. With the combined funds, it plans to relaunch an expired post-tornado program that helps people make down-payments on homes. The city also plans to spend millions of dollars to repair or demolish old houses. I think by the time 2026 rolls around, Joplin will be a better community,Ž Haase said. The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan „ passed in 2021 by a Democratic-led Congress and signed by President Joe Biden „ contained $350 billion of flexible aid to states, territories, tribes, counties, cities and towns. The Biden administration says the money was intended to provide both immediate aid amid a health crisis and a longer-term boost for communities. Governments must obligate that money for projects by the end of next year and spend it by the close of 2026. As of their April reports, more 26,500 governments collectively had spent 43% of their funds and approved plans for spending 77% of the money, according to the APs analysis. The actual amount of spending commitments likely is well over 80% when accounting for lag times and different reporting approaches taken by local governments, said Gene Sperling, the White House American Rescue Plan coordinator What you see across the country is that counties, cities, states overwhelmingly have committed these funds, are using them, are on track to meet their legal deadlines to have all the funds obligated by the end of 2024,Ž Sperling said. But Republicans and fiscal conservatives have questioned whether the spending is necessary, noting that most states rebounded quickly from an initial tax plunge during the pandemic to post large budget surpluses. Although the Left claimed their $2 trillion bill was designed to fight COVID, they wasted hundreds of billions of Americans hard-earned tax dollars on ridiculous things,Ž Republican U.S. Rep. Jason Smith, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said in a statement to the AP. Among other things, the money helped finance an upscale hotel in Florida, a minor league baseball stadium in New York and prisons in Alabama „ drawing outrage from some members of Congress. Some governments waited to do anything with the money until the Treasury Department finalized its rules in April 2022. Details are lacking on how some governments are using their funds because the Treasury relaxed reporting requirements for any money categorized by state or local officials as a replacement for lost revenues. According to the APs analysis, more than 6,000 local governments categorized their entire federal allotment as revenue replacementŽ „ often taking advantage of a Treasury rule that allows up to $10 million of assumed revenue loss without having to prove it.Local governments are spending billions of pandemic relief funds ASSOCIATED PRESSPresident Joe Biden signs the American Rescue Plan, a coronavirus relief package, in the Oval O ce of the White House, March 11, 2021, in Washington. BRIEFCASE Tanker believed to hold sanctioned Iran oil begins to be offloaded near TexasDUBAI, United Arab Emirates „ An American-owned oil tanker long suspected of carrying sanctioned Iranian crude oil has begun offloading its cargo near Texas. Thats according to tracking data analyzed late Saturday. The fate of the cargo aboard the Suez Rajan has become mired in the wider tensions between the U.S. and the Islamic Republic, even as Tehran and Washington work toward a trade of billions of dollars in frozen Iranian assets in South Korea for the release of five Iranian-Americans held in Tehran. U.S. and Iranian officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment Sunday.A raid on a Kansas newspaper likely broke the law, experts say. But which one?TOPEKA, Kan. „ Experts say a central Kansas police chief was on legally shaky ground when he ordered the raid of a weekly newspaper. A former federal prosecutor added Friday that the raid may have been a criminal civil rights violation and hed probably have the FBI look into it. Some legal experts believe the Aug. 11 raid on the Marion County Records offices and its publishers home violated a federal privacy law that protects journalists from newsroom searches. Some believe it violated a Kansas law that makes it difficult to force reporters and editors to disclose their sources or unpublished material. Would a Texas law take away workers water breaks? A closer look at House Bill 2127Opponents of a sweeping Texas bill blocking local governments from enforcing their laws say it would deprive workers of water breaks during a historic heat wave, among other dangers. Experts and advocates say workers would die, with high temperatures topping 100 degrees Fahrenheit and staying there for much of the past two months. Bill backers say it does no such thing, and its purpose is to streamline regulations across the state. At least one political analyst says the issue is less about worker protections and more about a battle for state control between progressive Democrats and conservative Republicans.GMs autonomous vehicle unit agrees to cut fleet in half after 2 crashes in San FranciscoGeneral Motors Cruise autonomous vehicle unit has agreed to cut its fleet of San Francisco robotaxis in half as authorities investigate two recent crashes in the city.

HEALTH ADAMS PUBLISHING GROUP | SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | 5 ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK „ Mary Miller-Duffy was dazed and grieving. Her brother suddenly collapsed and days later was brain-dead. Now she faced a tough question: Would she donate his body for research? Thats how the body of Maurice MoŽ Miller started its journey to a sunny corner of NYU Langone Healths intensive care unit „ and became part of the quest to one day ease the nations transplant shortage with organs from animals. He always wanted to help people,Ž said Mill er-Duffy, who struggled with the choice but is proud of her brothers last act. This tragic death, this fast short death „ something good has come out of it.Ž Surgeons replaced Millers kidneys with one from a genetically modified pig on July 14. Then doc tors and nurses cared for the deceased man like they would a living patient while anxiously ticking off the days. Remarkably, over a month later the new organ is per forming all the bodily functions of a healthy kidney „ the longest a pig kidney has ever worked in a person. Now the countdown is on to see if the kidney can last into September, a second month. The Associated Press got an inside look at the chal lenges of experiments with the dead that may help bring animal-to-human transplants closer to reality. Getting an organ transplant today is a long shot. More than 100,000 people are on the national waiting list, most who need a kidney. Thousands die waiting. Thousands more who could benefit arent even added to the list. I had seven cardiac arrests before I even was sick enoughŽ to qualify for a new heart, said Dr. Rob ert Montgomery, chief of NYU Langones transplant institute. Hes a kidney transplant surgeon „ and was lucky enough to get his own heart transplant in 2018. Filling the gap, hes convinced, will require using animal organs. After decades of failed attempts, now pigs geneti cally modified so their organs are more humanlike are renewing interest in so-called xenotransplantation. Last year, University of Maryland surgeons tried to save a dying man with a pig heart „ and he survived for two months. Montgomery is getting mor e practice in the dead before taking a chance with a living patient. A hand ful of prior experiments at NYU and the University of Alabama at Birmingham have kept pig kidneys and hearts working in donated bodies for a few days to a week, avoiding the immediate rejection that doomed many earlier attempts. But the most common kind of organ rejection devel ops over a month. That pig heart in Maryland worked great for nearly 50 days until abruptly faltering. Watching how pig kidneys reach those timepoints in donated bodies could offer vital lessons „ but how long could Montgomery expect a family to turn over their loved one? Im in awe of someone who can make a decision like that at, you know, one of the worst moments in their lives and really think about ... humanity,Ž he said. In Newburgh, New York, an ambulance had raced Miller to the hospital after he collapsed, a mass in his brain. He never woke up from the biopsy, brain-dead at just 57. Next steps were up to his sister, his closest relative. Miller-Duffy asked about donating his organs but he didnt qualify. That biopsy had found cancer. Only then did the organ agency broach whole-body donation. Miller-Duffy wasnt familiar with that, but the goal of improving kidney transplants, that kind of struck a chord.Ž Another brother had died of kidney disease as a toddler. Other relatives have kidney-dam aging illnesses or even died on dialysis. Flipping through family photos, Miller-Duffy recalled how her brother would adopt animals and once took care of a terminally ill friend. Still, she had questions. In a video call, Montgomery explained the pig trans plant to Miller-Duffy and her wife, Sue Duffy „ and why it could make a difference. Montgomerys com passion won them over. His body is not being hurt, you know,Ž Duffy said. Its just an incubation for the study to be done.Ž The experiment served as a rehearsal for one day operating in a living patient. Montgomery finished removing Millers own kidneys as a helicopter headed for the hospitals riverside landing pad. Drs. Jeffrey Stern and Adam Griesemer, fellow NYU surgeons, raced in kidneys theyd removed from a pig bred by Blacksburg, Virginia-based Revivicor. Sewing a pig kidney into a donated body isnt much different than a regular transplant, Stern said. Post-sur gery immune-suppressing drugs are standard, too. One twist: Tacked onto the pigs kidney was its thy mus, a gland that trains immune cells „ and thus might help protect the organ.ASSOCIATED PRESSMary Miller-Duy, left, sits next to her wife, Sue Duy, in their home in Newburgh, N.Y., on Aug. 2, 2023.

SPORTS ADAMS PUBLISHING GROUP | SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023 | 6STEVE MEGARGEEAssociated PressGREEN BAY, Wis. „ As New England Patriots cornerback Isaiah Bolden lay on the eld with a serious injury, his teammates couldnt avoid thinking about Damar Hamlin.New Englands preseason game with the Green Bay Packers was called off on Saturday night after Bolden was carted off the field early in the fourth quarter. The incident came more than seven months after Ham lin „ a Buffalo Bills safety „ went into cardiac arrest and was resuscitated on the field after making what appeared to be a routine tackle against the Cincinnati Bengals on Jan. 2. Of course thats in the back of all of our minds when something like that happens,Ž Patriots cornerback Jalen Mills said. The Patriots said after the game that Bolden had feeling in all his extremities, but had been taken to a hospital for further tests and observation. Were just keeping our fingers crossed,Ž Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. Bolden, a seventh-round pick from Jackson State, appeared to collide with teammate Calvin Munson while attempting to make a hit on a pass completion to Malik Heath of the Packers. It looks like just one of those collision hits, those freak hits that you see on rare occasions in this league, that you hate to see,Ž Mills said. We really couldnt see him too much. It looked like he was moving and his eyes were open, but as of right now, just asking everybody to keep him in their prayers and we hope for the best.Ž As medical officials treated Bolden, both teams left their respective sidelines and got on the field, with some players getting on one knee. After Bolden was carted off the field, the two teams con ferred and decided not to continue the game. The game stopped with the Patriots leading 21-17 with 10:29 left in the fourth quarter. Its a reminder of the fragility of life,Ž Patriots special teams player Matthew Slater said. Its not something we spend a lot of time thinking about, but the reality is all of us will have to wrestle with that at some point in time, every person whos ever walked the face of this Earth. I think its unfortunate that it happens in this context and this setting because this is meant to be a joyful, celebratory experience. Were playing a game. Were doing what we love. Were entertaining people. People are getting enjoyment out of our game. But its a reminder that things can turn on a dime. Its something you have to put out of your head as a player because you cant go out there with fear and hesitation, but the reality is things happen in life and certainly things happen in football all the time.Ž Players from both teams said they were reminded of Hamlins injury. It brought out that Damar feeling, and thats just scary,Ž Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne said. Thats how it feels. Its just praying for him that hes OK. They said he was moving, he was responding pretty well. Kind of hurt in his neck a little bit. Looked like it was head to head, like a pile together. You just never know in those moments.Ž Hamlins heart stopped as a result of commotio cordis, which is when a direct blow at a specific point in a heart beat causes cardiac arrest. Hamlin has since returned to the Bills and played in his hometown of Pittsburgh earlier in the day and had three tackles in a loss to the Steelers. Given the similarities, both teams agreed there was no point in continuing the game. This is not the AFC championship,Ž Slater said. Were not playing for records. Its preseason game two. When you have an injury like that, it affects a lot of guys in a lot of different ways. Clearly our team was shaken by what hap pened.Ž Packers outside linebacker Kingsley Enagbare agreed. That definitely was a shocker and one of those things that you kind of get the chills, when you see someone kind of pretty much without motion on the football field,Ž Enagbare said. Thats never a good sign, but I guess its definitely for the best that the game ended the way it did. I know I was a little shook up, man.Ž Players from both teams had connections to Bolden. Slater called Bolden a joy to be aroundŽ since the rookie arrived in New England.

price from the previous Friday Damian J. Troise; Alex Nieves € AP Source: Distilled Spirits Council of the United StatesMolson Coors Beverage is taking a bigger shot at expanding beyond beer amid competition from bourbon and other liquors. The maker of Molson and Coors beer is buying bourbon and rye whiskies maker Blue Run Spirits to expand its beverage offerings. Molsons spirits brands already include Five Trail whiskey and Barmen 1873. Budweiser maker AB InBev has also pushed into alcoholic beverages beyond beer with purchases including Cutwater Spirits in 2019. Boston Beer, maker of Sam Adams, has been partnering with distiller Beam Suntory to make alcoholic beverages. The business moves come amid a shift toward heavier pours of spirits such as bourbon, which topped beer for market share in 2022 for the first time. American whiskey, which includes bourbon, was the 3rd biggest spirit by sales and volume in 2022, just behind vodka and tequila, according to trade group The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. Just over 31 million 9-liter cases of American whiskey were sold in the U.S. last year, generating nearly $5.1 billion in revenue for distillers.Chasing sales growth Chasing sales growth Sales surge: Steady growth in sales of bourbon and other spirits is prompting brewers like Molson Coors to continue expanding offerings beyond beer. 10 15 20 25 30 35 million U.S. American whiskey sales, 9-liter cases 04 06 08 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 SUNNews Media For questions or comments, contact Chris Porter at 941-206-1134 or email chris.porter@yoursun.comClosing gures for Friday, August 18, 2023 35679.13 28660.94 Dow Jones industrials 35335.45 34263.19 34500.66 -780.74 -2.2 t s 4.1 ((&# | 9532 2.4 16717.04 11946.21 Dow Jones transport. 16258.98 15516.30 15700.60 -509.25 -3.1 t s 17.2 ((&# | 9987542 6.3 16458.89 13278.56 NYSE Comp. 16143.38 15626.92 15750.17 -393.20 -2.4 t s 3.7 ((&# | 7653 1.0 14446.55 10088.83 Nasdaq Comp. 13789.16 13161.76 13290.78 -354.07 -2.6 t s 27.0 ((&# | 99531 4.6 4607.07 3491.58 S&P 500 4490.33 4335.31 4369.71 -94.34 -2.1 t s 13.8 ((&# | 9765432 3.3 2743.01 2185.93 S&P MidCap 2665.12 2551.38 2578.86 -81.69 -3.1 t s 6.1 ((&# | 0.0 46570.30 34917.15 Wilshire 5000 45315.13 43693.83 44074.86 -1014.91 -2.3 t s 15.8 ((&# | 9942 4.5 2030.05 1641.94 Russell 2000 1920.90 1830.84 1859.42 -65.69 -3.4 t s 5.6 9973 | -5.0 52-WEEK WK WK YTD 1YR HIGH LOW INDEX HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG %CHG MO QTR %CHG %CHG 3,600 3,800 4,000 4,200 4,400 4,600 4,800 FA MAMJJ 25.67 MON -51.86 TUES -33.53 WED -33.97 THUR -0.65 FRI 10,000 11,000 12,000 13,000 14,000 15,000 FA MAMJJ 143.48 MON -157.28 TUES -156.42 WED -157.70 THUR -26.15 FRI Close: 13,290.78 1-week change: -354.07 (-2.6%)Nasdaq compositeStocks Recap Close: 4,369.71 1-week change: -94.34 (-2.1%)S&P 500WEEKLY PERFORMANCE Taxable„national avg 4.88 Allspring MMF/Premier 5.45 $10 mil.

The S&P 500 barely budged as it ended the week with a loss of more than 2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 25.83 points, or 0.1%, to 34,500.66, and the Nasdaq composite slipped 26.16, or 0.2%, to 13,290.78. August has been rough for the stock market, which has given back more than a quarter of the S&P 500s torrid gains for the years first seven months. Thats in part because a swift rise in yields has forced investors to reconsider whether stocks got too expensive, particularly after critics warned the market rose too far, too quickly. The e-commerce fashion company reported sales that fell far short of forecasts and issued an outlook that disappointed investors. The maker of electronics testing equipment forecast quarterly earnings that were well below what analysts were expecting. The cloud computing company reported quarterly results that came in well ahead of analysts estimates. The maker of manufacturing equipment for semiconductors reported results that easily beat forecasts. 2 4 6 $8 MA JJ FarfetchFTCH Close: $2.61 -2.15 or -45.2% $2.50$12.89 Vol.: Mkt.

gains for savers with retirement accounts through the first half of this year. The average 401(k) plan balance stood at $112,400 at the end of the second quarter, an increase of 4% from the first quarter and up 8.3% from the second quarter of last year, according to new data from Fidelity Investments drawn from more than 23 million accounts. The median balance was just $24,800. About 35% of Americans reported having a 401(k) plan in 2020, according to the Census Bureau. Individual retirement accounts, or IRAs, also rose. The average balance was $113,800 by the end of the second quarter, an increase of 5% from the first quarter and up 2.7% from the second quarter last year, Fidelity said. Those gains came as the stock market cruised through the first half of 2023, in part because the economy has been able to defy many predictions for it to fall into a recession, at least so far. The job market in particular has remained resilient despite high interest rates that slow the economy in hopes of dragging down inflation. Thats helped profits for companies not fall as much as feared. The benchmark S&P 500 index rallied to a 15.9% gain through the first six months of the year. It added another 3.6% by the end of July, but has given up some ground so far this month. It was up 14.7% for the year as of Wednesday.

Starting later this month, an electric, self-driving shuttle will whisk passengers around a 1-mile (1.6 km) loop in the downtown area for no charge, Orlando officials said Wednesday. The eight-passenger shuttle service is part of a six-month trial for the central Florida city. Transportation planners hope to use data gathered from the pilot program to guide the citys future transportation strategy. The autonomous shuttle service is operated by Beep Inc., an Orlando-based company.AP NEW AMAZON FEATURE USES AI TO SUMMARIZE REVIEWS Amazon is rolling out a new generative AI feature that summarizes product reviews for customers. The feature, which the company began testing earlier this year, is designed to help shoppers determine at a glance what other customers said about a product before they spend time reading through individual reviews. It will pick out common themes and summarize them in a short paragraph on the product detail page. The company wrote in a blog post published Monday that the AI-generated reviews are now available to a subset of mobile shoppers in the U.S. across a broadŽ selection of products.
