Among the choices they must make will also be one of the longest lists of proposed constitutional changes in decades, from betting on dog racing to implementing a ban on public of“ cials lobbying for six years after they leave of“ ce. The 12 constitutional amendments on this years ballot are the most since 1998, when the states Constitution Revision Commission „ which meets once every 20 years „ put nine of 13 amendments on the ballot. The Constitution Revision Commission convened this year and placed eight amendments on the ballot. In some cases, measures have been grouped together, meaning voters will have to choose to approve or reject disparate proposals that have been linked in one amendment. Floridians will have to decide whether they want to ban both vaping indoors and offshore oil and gas drilling, and if they want to require Miami-Dade to elect its sheriff and create a state counter-terrorism of“ ce and add an existing veterans affairs department to the constitution. To be approved, any constitutional amendment requires 60 percent of the vote. Heres what this years amendments do: Amendment 1, Increased Homestead Property Tax Exemption would raise the portion of a homes value that can be exempted from non-school property taxes. The Legislature voted to refer the exemption to the ballot in 2017, and the proposed changes would apply to the assessed value of a homestead property between $100,000 and $125,000, raising the maximum exemption to $75,000. The shift could save homeowners a couple hundred dollars, but a legislative staff analysis estimated local governments „ which rely on property taxes for revenue „ would lose about $645 million in the “ rst year if the exemption, effective Jan. 1, is approved.

She drove by the single-vehicle wreck on the way to the gym on Dec. 5, 2016, and said a prayer that everything would be OK, not knowing her daughter was involved. Later that day, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper met her at the AT&T store in Port Charlotte to let her know her daughter, 21-yearold Brittany Beni, had been killed in a DUI crash just after 2 a.m. It was just a nightmare from then on, and almost 22 months later, its still a nightmare,Ž Beni said last week. Every day were reminded. We drive past the scene, and once a month, we go to court.Ž Investigators originally believed Beni and 24-yearold Wesley Chery were the only two occupants of the vehicle. Months later, evidence revealed a third person, Michel Brutus, was the driver who allegedly ” ed the scene. Brutus is now in custody at the Charlotte County Jail awaiting trial. Linda Beni and her family are now advocating for Amendment 6, also known as the Victims Rights amendment or Marsys Law, which will be on the ballot in the November election. The text of the amendment states its intention is to preserve and protect the right of crime victims to achieve justice, ensure a meaningful role throughout the criminal and juvenile justice systems for crime victims, and ensure that crime victims rights and interests are respected and protected by law in a manner no less vigorous than protections afforded to criminal defendants and juvenile delinquents.Ž Speci“ c rights are spelled out, including due process, freedom from intimidation and harassment, the right to have victims safety and welfare considered when setting bail, and the right to be noti“ ed of and heard at all court proceedings. One portion of the amendment states that a state attorney may “ le a good faith demand for a speedy trialŽ which would require the court to hold a calendar call within 15 days and to schedule a trial no more than 60 days after the demand. Beni believes if Marsys Law were in place, it never would have taken eight hours for her to be noti“ ed of her daughters death, and the An opportunity to improveVehicular homicide victims family pushes for Amendment 6 Linda and Scott Beni with a photo of Brittany, who passed away on Dec. 5, 2016.

After it was announced last week that the Democrat who prevailed in the August primary election for the seat, April Freeman, had died unexpectedly, the Florida Democratic Party planned to vote Saturday to select a substitute nominee. However, the party has run into a problem during deliberations. According to Florida statute, any person who was quali“ ed for nomination or election in another election cannot run for a different posit ion. This state statute „ 100.111(3)(c) „ does not apply to Lieutenant Governor. Pam Keith, who ran for, but did not receive the Democratic nomination for Congressional District 18, along with R. David Walker, who ran unsuccessfully as a Democratic candidate for Florida Secretary of Agriculture, were informed Wednesday they would not be eligible for consideration. So then, Keith “ led a civil lawsuit Friday with Walker requesting the ability to be considered as Freemans replacement despite the state law against it. (The statute) is facially unconstitutional,Ž Keith wrote in the federal complaint “ led in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida on Friday.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA „ The board meeting Wednesday of the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority will determine if the authority will continue with potentially expensive litigation, or instead, agree to a temporary cease “re. According to the agenda for Wednesdays meeting of the authoritys board, composed of one commissioner from each of the four counties that make up the water authority, will meet in executive session with their attorney, Doug Manson, to discuss pending litigation. That litigation, “led by the Polk Regional Water Cooperative and being heard by a state administrative law judge, challenges a plan by the authority to withdraw up to an additional 258 million gallons of water a day from the Peace River to meet the future needs of its customers. The cities of Lakeland, Fort Meade, Wauchula, Bartow and Winter Haven, all in Polk County, also sued to stop the additional withdrawals. A mediation session is scheduled to take place on Oct. 8. The authority currently withdraws 120 million gallons per day from the river during the rainy season under an existing permit from the Southwest Florida Water Management District „ commonly known as Swiftmud. The authority treats the water, then stores it in underground reservoirs for use during the dry season when ”ows from the Peace River are low. Because Swiftmud approved the authoritys permit to withdraw the additional water, they were named as respondents or defendants in the litigation “led by the Polk Water Authority. Polk, with its many municipalities and where the headwaters of the Peace River originate, is looking to the river as its future water supply and sees the authoritys plan to withdraw additional supplies as a threat to its own plans. Two weeks ago, Brian Armstrong, Swiftmuds executive director, proposed that the parties in essence declare a cease “re while his agency works with Polk and Hillsborough counties to see if a project under development in Hillsborough could meet Polks needs. That project, a complicated process, essentially involves injecting water into the saltwater zone of the aquifer and raising the freshwater supply table upstream from Polk County. Details still remain to be resolved between Polk and Hillsborough, but Armstrong is seeking up to a years cease “re to arrange a deal. The administrative hearing on the case is set to begin in January. Last week, Pat Lehman, executive director of the authority told the Sun that Hillsborough was supportive of the idea. Wednesdays meeting of the authority board will begin at 9:30 a.m. in commission chambers at the DeSoto County Administration Building, 201 East Oak St., Arcadia.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comPeace River board to consider mediation in water litigation SUN FILE PHOTO BY DANIEL SUTPHINA shoreline along Peace River.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITERSARASOTA „ The Sarasota County School Board will meet for a policy review workshop and its regular board meeting on Tuesday. The board has been working to edit its board policy manual since the start of the 2017-18 school year. Much of the editing of the policies has been updating language and grammatical edits. On Tuesday, the board will look at chapters three and six. Chapter three speci“cally deals with school administration, and chapter six deals with human resources. Following the policy hearing the board will hold its regular board meeting. The board will look at four items of new business for approval. One of the items for new business is the “nal approval of the charter application for the State College of Florida charter school in Venice. Over the summer, SCF “led an application to replicate its charter school at the campus tucked away in West Villages near North Port. The college currently has a charter school at its main campus in Bradenton. The school caters to students in grades 9 through 12, and by the time students graduate, they have a chance to earn both a high school diploma and associate degree. The school would be slated to open in August 2019 and would welcome juniors its “rst year. The school board will vote on the “nal charter on Tuesday. Also on the agenda is the approval of two new job descriptions for accountants. The accountant positions, according to board documents, will be a degree and nondegree accountant. The non-degree accountant would need either an associate degree or a high school diploma and pass the districts bookkeeping exam. One accountant will work in payroll while the other will work in the “nance department. The “nal item of new business is the reimbursement of attorneys fees for a “nancial committee member. The suit was in reference to a records request involving Gabriel Hament of the committee. The suit was “led earlier this year, but was ultimately dismissed by the courts. Hament, according to the board documents, is looking for a reimbursement of attorneys fees totaling $2,784. The board will decide if it will reimburse the fees during Tuesdays meeting. The Sarasota County School Board will meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the Board Chambers, 1980 Landings Blvd., Sarasota for its policy workshop, followed by its regular board meeting at 6:30 p.m. Meetings and workshops are broadcast on The Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33.

The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERAfter four years, five defense attorneys, two judges and 22 jurors, a Charlotte County woman was found guilty of insurance fraud and arson and will be sentenced next month. A local jury convicted Nancy Amieva, 72, on Sept. 21 for first-degree arson of an occupied dwelling, burning to defraud an insurer, and a fraudulent insurance claim of over $20,000 but less than $100,000. Authorities said she intentionally set her kitchen on fire in 2013, and then flooded it with a garden hose. Amieva attempted to claim $70,983.84 from her insurance company, Citizens Insurance, after the fire, but the claim was denied, records filed in court show. She called 911 to report a kitchen fire, and told authorities she was cooking fish oil on her stove but fell asleep and was awakened by the smoke, according to the court records. After hanging up on dispatchers two to three times, court documents said, Amieva arrived at the fire department and directed them to a neighbors home. The fire was confined to Amievas stove and microwave. Amieva told authorities she wanted to sue her contractor because her smoke alarms never activated; however, dispatch records confirmed that alarms could be heard during the 911 calls she had made. Amieva had called her insurance company 11 and nine days prior to the fire, asking specific questions about her coverage for fire and theft,Ž court documents said. She asked such detailed questions about the need for receipts or police reports and pictures, that each representative questioned if she had a loss.Ž A few days after the fire, Amieva called a contractor she had previously worked with to help with the cleanup process. After he had summoned Global Disaster Recovery and they had taken photos to prepare the cleanup of the home, she called a few days later saying she had brought a garden hose in the house to clean it herself. The contractor estimated there were 200 gallons of water all over the home. Later, Amieva claimed the fire department had flooded her home. Amieva asked her contractor to say that the damages were more than what it would cost to do the repairs; the appliances that were damaged had been brand new and she wanted him to add $7,000 to $8,000 to the estimate. The contractor refused. Oh, you have never told a lie before?Ž Amieva asked him, according to court documents. She also told her contractor she needed to buy a new car. Amieva had also produced an inventory of her personal property, including small appliances that the fire department or any other person involved never recall being present.Ž Her sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 29 at the Charlotte County Justice Center.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comJury finds Charlotte County woman, 72, guilty of arson, insurance fraud NANCY AMIEVAadno=3615908-1 PUBLIC NOTICE Punta Gorda Housing Authority 340 Gulf Breeze Ave., Punta Gorda, FL 33950 Is OPENING the Public Housing Waitlist for 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments on: October 1, 2018 Pre-Applications are available via the internet at www.puntagordaha.org Applicants without access to a computer may access Punta Gorda Housing Authority's website from a computer at any public library or The Computer Center located at 340 Gulf Breeze Ave, Punta Gorda, FL 33950.

The above will help to explain the deep Big Sugar tentaclesŽ that cause our Florida elected officials to continually vote their interests. In 2011 U.S. consumers were on the hook for $1.4 billion in costs paid out of their taxes „ this came out of our pockets „ for surplus sugar when one Florida Sugar company alone in 2011 profited $65 million the same year and another $55 million for surplus sugar. The 1981 Farm Bill,Ž which every few years Big Sugar lobbies for the reauthorization of, requires excess sugar manufactured must be purchased by the U.S. government. In 2011 when world price of sugar was 10 cents a pound. The U.S. government was required to guarantee 21 cents a pound to Big Sugar. The U.S. government takes this surplus sugar at this mark up and holds it in warehouses. Quite the deal right? This is the bill that our elected officials vote for every so many years. Needless to say this is the win-win deal Big Sugar wants to keep alive at the taxpayers expense. No wonder Big Sugar donates big money to the political candidates. Thousands of dollars to elect their senators or congressmen and to state and local officials from Big Sugar translates into millions of dollars of easy money and sugar that sits in warehouses paid for by the American people. Please read the above article. Taxpayers need to know the truth.Thea N. Nelson EnglewoodCheck out why referendum neededEditor: The Vote Yes for Success! ballot initiative to increase funding for our schools in Charlotte County is an important question for our citizens. Everyone should want to know why it is necessary, how the funds will be used, and how transparent accountability for those funds will be maintained. I encourage all citizens to visit the website: http:// VoteYes4Success.com for answers to those questions.Christine Zimmer Punta GordaGet moving and fourlane Pine St.Editor: When is Sarasota County going to four-lane its portion of Pine Street that was completed on the Charlotte County side some 20 years ago and is now being repaved. The traffic on Pine Street that is generated by local residents traveling to many of the medical offices, Englewood Hospital, churches, schools and other places of business is terrible. Now, with the season coming back, unbearable. The two-lane part of the road in Sarasota County is used daily by law enforcement, EMS, Fire Department, school buses, delivery trucks and residents. It is also used as a bypass around State Road 776 to get from one end of town to the other and the Post Office including the places of business on River Road. There have been several accidents over the years at the point where it goes from four lanes in Charlotte County down two lanes in Sarasota County. No one seems to want to talk about it as I have brought this up a year ago with letters to Sarasota County and the newspapers along with the fact there were no hurricane shelters in Englewood during Irma.Bruce Benardo Sr. EnglewoodWe need yellow flashing arrow lightsEditor: Lets make some changes, besides the names of some roads that change suddenly around here. The worst thing is sitting at the intersection with a solid red left-turn arrow, waiting to turn green and no traffic around. Im thinking, what gadget invented this idea? Whats the matter with a yellow flashing arror, which means stop and go, if no one is coming. Life is precious and why waste it sitting around looking stupid? How about it Mr. Traffic Engineer? Can we make a change?Jim Liguori Port Charlotte Robots gunning for your jobEditor: The robots are coming. Actually they are already here and many more are on the way. So what, you ask? And the answer is they are gunning for your job. If your job is repetitive or requires little thought or decision making, or is boring, then get ready for the unemployment line. If you are thinking youre safe because you are paid so little that replacing you with an expensive robot will never happen, wrong again. Robots dont gossip, quit or get sick. They dont get hurt or “le lawsuits. They are never late, they dont talk back, sabotage stuff, steal stuff or take breaks. Employers dont have to make Social Security, or Medicaid contributions, “le W-2s, keep payroll accounts, or pay overtime. Robots dont get pregnant dont get bored and they dont shoot their coworkers. Thats important. Right now, if you are an employer and reading this you probably wish you had lots of robots for employees. Currently the only robot replacement defense is having critical thinking skillsŽ and teamwork skills. Robots have neither. The robots, when asked to comment on this article, referred us to their lawyer.Mike Deignan Punta GordaEverglades project must be completedEditor: I just saw the full page U.S. Sugar ad and looking at the map of Lake Okeechobee and the water ”ows reminded of the un“nished Everglades Restoration Project. U.S. Sugar is correct in saying dont blame usŽ for your red tide. The problem for Southwest Florida is rainwater from Lake Okeechobee must be released to prevent Lake Okeechobee from over”owing and the Army Corp of Engineers has to send it our way. The Everglades Restoration Project when complete will purify and divert most of Lake Okeechobees water south via a puri“cation system that has not been created yet south of the lake. The puri“ed water will then ”ow through the Everglades National Park and out to Florida Bay the way it did hundreds of years ago. We need federal government funding to “nish the Everglades Project if we ever want to get rid of our red tide.Howard Goodrich Jr. Rotonda West The importance of the proposed 1 mill Charlotte County school tax referendum cannot be emphasized enough. Charlotte County Schools are asking voters to approve the tax „ equal to $1 for every $1,000 of a homes value „ to enhance the quality of education they can offer students. The tax is expected to add about $18 million a year to the budget. I look at the opportunities for this money like a threelegged stool,Ž Charlotte Schools Superintendent Steve Dionisio said of how the money would be spent. We need competitive salaries for everyone, from teachers down to custodians,Ž he said. We have to be able to recruit and retain our (people). We are losing teachers and bus drivers to other districts and that is a problem.Ž Second, we want to add 30 minutes of instruction every day. And that will be quality minutes that will push us in the right direction „ not just extra minutes sitting in class. And, also we have a catchall category called Success Advancement Initiative, which means security and other (costs). The state has given us money for security but there are strings attached. We want to make our schools safer and not just by adding school resource of“cers. And, we want to add reading and math coaches and paraprofessionals.Ž Dionisio said if the referendum passes the school district „ looking ahead to when the tax would sunset in four years „ does not plan to spend every nickel. We want to have a reserve fund so that if we ask to renew the referendum in four years, and it does not pass, we dont have to kill all these programs cold turkey. We wouldnt want to be faced with the possibility of layoffs and cutting salaries (back to what they are now). We could take a look at what worked and what didnt and what programs we might not need that we had before and decide how to phase things out.Ž The public should not worry about the schools keeping their word on how they plan to spend the money. A committee „ a “scal police squad for lack of a better term „ would be appointed to keep track of the spending. It will be made up of people from diverse walks of life and with various skills and experience. Dionisio said he tires of being compared to Sarasota County but the reality of having a district next door „ which raises around $50 million a year through its own 1 mill property tax on homes „ makes it dif“cult to keep good teachers. While Charlotte has been lucky to have former students “nd their way home and take positions in the classroom, as those teachers begin their own families the lure of higher salaries a few miles away is strong. Besides the obvious need to improve our school district, which ranks 28th in the state in quality, there is another huge reason to support this referendum. If Charlotte County is to attract quality businesses, young families and workers who can fill key jobs, it must be able to offer a top-notch school system. Industries looking to relocate always take a keen interest in how strong the local school system is. We strongly reco mmend voters check yes on Nov. 6 to approve the Charlotte County Schools tax referendum.Charlotte County school tax referendum HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9VIEWPOINTHeres my question,Ž tweets legal scholar Jeffrey A. Sachs, obviously in response to the controversy over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. What is the alternative reality where Roe was never decided, levels of partisan polarization are identical to our own, and the SCOTUS appointments process is markedly better?Ž Heres the problem with the question: If Roe v. Wade had never been decided, if the Supreme Court had just declined to hear cases challenging the constitutionality of abortion bans, levels of partisan polarization would not be anything like what we see around us. Thats my conclusion, and the conclusion of New York Times columnist Ross Douthat. Youd still have some of the same breakdowns and derangements,Ž he tweeted in response to Sachs, but Americas distinctive kind of ideological sorting-out was not by any means predictable from the vantage point of 1970 or 1975.Ž It certainly wasnt. At the time, by legalizing abortion everywhere, Roe seemed to be taking the nation where it was already going. In the “ve years before the decision was handed down in January 1973, 16 states with 41 percent of the nations population had liberalized their abortion laws. Legislatures in other states might have done so later that year. Most of the nation seemed headed to the abortion regime that has prevailed in most of Europe, where abortion is generally legal, but not as late in pregnancies as required by Roe and subsequent cases. And in a no-Roe America, just as in no-Roe Europe, different places might have had different abortion laws, changeable though the ordinary political process. The unusually sweeping nature of the opinion in Roe may be due to its having been written by Harry Blackmun, the only one of the 113 Supreme Court justices in history to have devoted most of his prejudicial legal career to being counsel to the Mayo Clinic, defending doctors. Doctors, of course, not pregnant women, were usually the targets of abortion prosecutions. Far from settling opinion on abortion, Roe made it a national political issue and the focus of national politics. In the 1970s, it cut across party lines: There were plenty of pro-Roe Republicans and anti-Roe Democrats. Conventional politicians dreaded that it would cost them voters from their own party and not gain any from the other. In my home state of Michigan, for example, former Republican Gov. William Milliken, a wealthy Yale graduate, strongly favored legalized abortion. Former Democratic House Speaker William Ryan, a union supporter who lived next door to a nunnery, was strongly opposed. Some longtime Republicans were miffed when then-President Ronald Reagan went out of his way in the 1980s to spotlight his opposition to abortion, but his vice president and successor George H.W. Bush followed his lead. Then Democrats blocked anti-abortion then-Gov. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania from speaking at their 1992 national convention. It soon became clear to aspiring politicians that, outside a few states, there was no future for a pro-life Democrat or a pro-choice Republican. And among voters, views on abortion and party identi“cation had largely converged by 2000. The abortion issue has been the source of most of the controversy in debates over Supreme Court nominees at least since Clarence Thomas in 1991. What accounts for the lasting in”uence of this issue? One reason is that Americans are closely divided and, depending on how the issue is framed, ambivalent. Most dont want to ban abortions altogether, but most favor just about every proposed limitation. Second, opinion hasnt shifted. In the last 15 years, most Americans moved from opposing to favoring same-sex marriage, but opinion on abortion has scarcely budged. Young voters are, if anything, less supportive of abortion rights than their elders. Third, opinion on this issue is based on moral values of central importance to the way people live their lives. For pro-choicers, the issue is a proxy for personal autonomy. For pro-lifers, its a question of extinguishing human lives. Things a lot more important to people than whether the minimum wage goes up a dollar or the income tax rate goes down a percent. So we get, as Douthat puts it, partisan sorting based on religiosity, which accelerates polarization by theologizing it.Ž Which helps to explain the vehemence of the “ght over Judge Kavanaughs nomination and, in my opinion, the unscrupulousness of its opponents. Whats curious is that on this issue, President Trumps words and actions have been largely digni“ed and defensible. Which shows thats possible even in a polarized partisan atmosphere. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and longtime co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.How abortion has polarized America Michael BARONEWashington Examiner Politics is all about winning, and nowhere is that truer than the all-out war to con“rm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. That is why I am trying to “nd a winner after one of the most exhausting and extraordinary days anyone has experienced. I. Just. Cant. Christine Blasey Ford was brave, believable, sympathetic, and forceful when she was asked how certain she was that Kavanaugh sexually attacked her more than 30 years ago when both were high school students. Her answer, without hesitation: 100 percent.Ž I believe her „ and not because she came forward even after acknowledging in her opening statement that she was terri“edŽ to testify to the U.S. Senate committee that will recommend whether Kavanaughs nomination to the Supreme Court should go forward. There is no doubt she will look back on this experience as one of the worst periods of her life, and that pain showed throughout her testimony. She said she is haunted by Kavanaughs laughter after the encounter. I think we all know how she would respond if someone suggested she wonŽ the day. I admire the stand she took and the way she handled herself, but only she can say if it was worth the cost. Her life has been a living hell since she came forward „ and will continue to be. Thats what this process does to people, and its disgusting. What about the man she says committed that vile deed as a boy? Kavanaughs anguish was clear during his combative and emotional opening statement. You would have to be a hell of an actor to fake that kind of pain. It was hard not to feel sympathy for him when he said he and his family have been totally and permanently destroyedŽ by the resulting furor after Ford came forward. I have no doubt that its true. A reputation, once lost, is hard to recover. He thundered his innocence. He cried frequently. He choked up, knowing his carefully crafted reputation was unraveling before the entire nation. He was alternately combative and defiant, maybe figuring he had nothing to lose at this point. No doubt many saw that as a man fighting an injustice being inflicted on him and his family. But Im also wondering what the reaction would have been if Ford had screamed at senators and sobbed during her appearance, the way Kavanaugh did. Would she have been dismissed as too emotional and unhinged? Would that have cast doubt on the truthfulness of her testimony? Even if Brett Kavanaugh ultimately is confirmed to SCOTUS „ which I wouldnt bet on and I doubt he truly believes will happen either „ it wont be a win. Hell carry these scars for the rest of his life. What happened during testimony Thursday will be in the first sentence of his obituary. And as far as the Senate? Big losers. Democrats embarrassed themselves while grilling Kavanaugh about stuff in his high school yearbook that appeared to be about barfing and flatulence. I would say its beneath the dignity of the Senate, except I dont think there is any depth to which these politicians wont sink. I thought Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina might have tilted the scale a little bit in Kavanaughs favor with his blustering outburst defending the nominee from what he called a shamŽ process. Youre looking for a fair process? You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend,Ž Graham thundered, his face turning red, blood vessels bulging. I might have been inclined to give Grahams words more heed if minutes later he hadnt brushed off a woman in the lobby who told him she had been raped. He told her to go to the cops, then got into an elevator. That is really what it comes down to „ the attitude that many in the Party of Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh, seem to have toward women and what they endure. They attack the victim. They dismiss. They smear. Republican senators, one by one, told Kavanaugh how much sympathy they felt for what he has endured. What about Ford, and what she has endured? What about what the nation has endured, and how divided it will be after this? Winners? Find one. I sure cant. Who won the SCOTUS hearing? Nobody Joe HENDERSONColumnist Shes waiting for a new home. Shes waiting for you.

Last year, she said, Brutus was offered a plea deal of 11 years in prison, and pr osecutors never consulted with her until after the fact. It is supposed to be offered to the victims “rst, and we get to decide whether we want to go to trial,Ž she said. They took it into their own hands and said we didnt want you have to go through a trial. [...] Its not their prerogative to tell us we dont want to go to trial.Ž Judge Donald Mason denied the plea, and t he Benis are hoping for a trial date to be set by the end of the year. Still, its a struggle each month to “nd out whats going on, Beni said. Although the State Attorneys Of“ce has victim advocates, she said they rarely call, and the family is frequently left in the dark. Its awful for our family,Ž she said. I dont think well ever get closure. I dont like to use that word, but I feel like well never have any peace. I feel like she cant rest in peace until we know whats going on.Ž The Florida Sheriffs Association, including the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce, also supports the amendment. As the Charlotte County Sheriff, I have spent countless hours following an arrest explaining the constitutional rights afforded to someone accused of a crime,Ž Charlo tte County Sheriff Bill Prummell said in an emailed statement. I wish I could say I have spent a similar amount of time talking with crime victims about their own rights, but unfortunately victims lack any clear, enforceable constitutional protections. Imagine telling a mother the law considers the rights of her sons murderer more important than her own, or that a rapist has stronger legal protections than the person he or she assaulted.Ž However, not everyone in the legal community agrees. Defense Attorney Russell Kirshy said most of the protections provided by the proposed amendment are already in the Florida statutes or the constitution. As things stand right now, victims have the right to be heard at every critical stage of the proceedings,Ž he said. They have the right to have their opinions voiced and considered by the court and the state. [...] The problem is that this raises those obligations and then puts them in a constitutional amendment.Ž Kirshy said while people might say victims rights are being taken away by the crime committed against them, their rights are not being threatened by the state the same way a defendants are, which is why due process is so important. The state isnt going to take away their freedom,Ž he said. The state isnt going to take away their life. [...] The bottom line is, there is a dramatic difference between being a victim and wanting to be heard, versus giving rights to a victim at the same level as a defendant.Ž In particular Kirshy said the idea of a victim demanding a speedy trial is dangerous, mentioning one case he took on where the discovery was around 1,800 pages long. The state has the option of doing all their work before, and putting an awful lot of resources into that work, before they ever arrest the defendant,Ž he said. Think about ho w behind the eight ball I would be if they could arrest a client and demand a speedy trial. It took me three years to get ready for that trial.Ž Scott Weinberg, another local defense attorney, agreed. The criminal justice system is so skewed against the defendant,Ž he said. The more rights you give to victims, the more people will make up allegations.Ž Kirshy said while he feels for victims, the lack of communication and the lengthy court process wont be “xed by an amendment. Cuts to court budgets year after year have meant judges and attorneys taking on more and more cases, slowing down the process for everyone. The system is grossly underfunded,Ž he said. Thats the real story.Ž The amendment is also bundled with a change that would increase judges mandatory retirement age from 70 to 75. Brittanys brother, Scott Beni, said whether the amendment passes or not, hes grateful for the attention its bringing to the issue. Whether the amendment goes through or not, this has shed light that theres an opportunity to improve what is currently happening with communication, advocacy for the victims,Ž Scott Beni said. Regardless, I think they can see we have some work to do.ŽEmail: aeasker@sun-herald.comFAMILYFROM PAGE 1 federal court in Tampa Monday with Judge Elizabeth A.

The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 11FROM PAGE ONEtrained together. Rory was always in a good mood. When times were hard, he was the epitome of smiling through the misery. He was a ham. Then we were sent to different parts of Afghanistan. It was really hard I found out he died. Rory was a warrior, a brother and a friend.Ž On Saturday, Nuccio, 27, drove from his home in Arcadia to Rorys parents house in Rotonda West. He stood in the front yard behind an empty ”ag pole. A crystal vase with a red, white and blue candle and a gold Marine Corps lapel pin with an eagle, globe and anchor sat on a table in front of him. At 11 a.m., Rorys father, Mike, thanked the 30 gathered in his yard „ some who were strangers or distant neighbors „ for coming to the “fth anniversary remembrance of his sons death by suicide. Five years to the day, Rory took his life,Ž Mike said. I wanted to put up a ”ag. I wanted to remember my son with a 21-gun salute. He was a bad-ass Marine. There are about 22 suicides of military personnel daily. Its got to stop.Ž At 11:22 a.m. Nuccio raised the new American ”ag followed by a ”ag from the Honor and Remember organization. The nonpro“t pays tribute to all military lives lost, not only while serving on active duty, but also as a result of serving. During the ”ag ceremony, Mike embraced his wife Janice as members of the American Legion Post 113 Honor Guard “red a 21-gun salute in three volleys. With permission, the Dalglieshs neighbors expected to hear the gunshots. After the short ceremony, Mike and Nuccio hugged for a long time, before Janice stepped in for one. When you are in the military, you can spend years with people who are with you day in and day out through the worse times,Ž Nuccio said. When you lose one of those friends, during combat or when they leave, it sucks. Then when you go home those people who you were with and considered your brothers arent there anymore, theres loneliness.Ž Nuccio said while most who served in the military dont broadcastŽ they are lonely or want to talk, its okay to reach out to them. Usually friends or family tells people the veteran is back home, thats how people “nd out,Ž he said. Its okay to reach out to them. Ask how they are doing. Tell them you are there for them. I dont think enough veterans hear that.Ž Janice said her son was young when he went into the military and married at an early age. His marriage didnt work out after a year,Ž she said. That made him upset. These boys go into the military when they are 18. They experience so much in other countries that doesnt happen here. Rory turned 21 in Afghanistan.Ž Like others, Rory struggled with injuries and later life transitions, even though he was still in the military, she said. The brain doesnt fully develop until a person is about 26 years old,Ž Janice said. So you have these soldiers who served for several years and when they get out, they dont know what they will do. They dont know how to “t in. They dont know how to get help for any post traumatic stress. They arent reminded that some of the vaccinations they received to be in other countries cant be mixed with other drug combinations once they get out of the service. The military doesnt give them help to transition from the daily routines of service to everyday life and its pressures.Ž Mike agreed, adding of“cers, “re“ghters and other “rst responders see so much and need a strong support system. They need to know there is help out there,Ž he said. Theres no shame in asking for help.Ž Janice said she learned others too were experiencing the impacts of suicide. She read about a fundraiser organized by Janine Lutz, whose son, John, was given between 17-24 prescriptions at one time after being diagnosed with PTSD by the Veterans Administration. Suicide is one of the side effects of the antianxiety drug Klonopin. Deeply depressed and in treatment over a casualty he witnessed from his time in Afghanistan, John attempted suicide. He was prescribed 90 morphine pills and another drug, Me”oquine, (an antiMalaria drug whose side effects include vivid dreams, hallucinations, paranoia and suicidal ideations). He was found dead eight days later, J an. 12, 2013. Janine Lutz started The LCpl Janos V Lutz Live To Tell Foundation to support and improve the lives of military and “rst Responders with access to resources, and building community. Janine started a Lutz Buddy Up program in Davie, Florida,Ž Janice said. When I “rst met her and she would speak somewhere, she would throw a porcelain elephant on the ground. As it shattered, she would say now lets talk about the elephant in the room referring to her sons suicide. Then she talks about Lutz Buddy Up clubs which are held monthly for vets, “rst responders to get together eat and talk. They can share stories, tell how they are doing and sometimes just feel a little better when they leave because they enjoyed the comradely. All of the money she raises though the foundation goes back to help veterans and their families. Janine is trying to develop a smartphone app. It will have a green, yellow and red light. If the veteran hits the green light on the app, it means they are good. If they hit the yellow, they may be reaching out for help and the red may signal they want to be left alone. Its another way for them to reach out to each other. I hope Janine is able to get it going soon, because its needed. It could help save someone.ŽEmail: eallen@sun-herald.comAssessments another property tax proposal referred by the Legislature, would cement an existing cap on non-homestead property assessments. Such property tax assessment increases have been limited to 10 percent of the previous years assessed value since 2008, when another constitutional amendment that capped the increases passed. Amendment 3, Voter Control of Gambling in Florida a citizen-initiated amendment, would give voters the exclusive right to decide to authorize expansions of casino gambling in Florida. That authority currently rests with both the Legislature and voters, through constitutional amendment. Card games, casino games and slot machines are limited to tribal facilities in most of Florida, though some slot machines are allowed at certain pari-mutuel facilities in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Though the Legislature has tried in recent years to pass gambling bills that would address the states agreement with the Seminole Tribe and allow for some expansion of casinos, negotiations have repeatedly broken down as the House, which is more opposed to gambling, rejected the Senates proposals. Amendment 4, Voting Restoration Amendment another petition-drive amendment, would restore voting rights to former felons if they have served their time, with the exception of those who have committed crimes like murder or sex offenses. For the past seven years, the state has required that felons wait at least “ve years after their sentences are complete to apply to regain voting rights. The current process can take a decade or more under the Scott administrations requirement that a state clemency board consider each request during its four meetings a year. In addition to the challenge posed by the amendment, the system is the subject of an ongoing, protracted legal battle. U.S. District Judge Mark Walker in March struck down the vote restoration system for felons as so arbitrary as to be unconstitutional, but the state won a stay of his injunction as an appeal goes to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Arguments in the legal case were heard in July, but the case is unlikely to be resolved before voters cast their ballots in November. If passed, about 1.5 million people in Florida could be affected. Amendment 5, Supermajority Vote Required to Impose, Authorize, or Raise State Taxes or Fees another proposal from lawmakers this year, would require a two-thirds super-majority vote in the Legislature to impose, approve or raise state taxes and fees. The higher threshold means it would take only a third of members in either the state House or Senate to block any future tax increases or repeal existing exemptions. The idea, ”oated by Gov. Rick Scott last year, would also stop any provisions to raise taxes or fees from being tacked onto other state bills, and does not apply to any fees or taxes that would be levied by local governments or agencies, such as school districts. The last seven amendments on this years ballot come from the Constitution Revision Commission. The commission chose about 20 proposals for this years ballot but decided to groupŽ distinct proposals together into eight amendments, meaning that in some cases voters must approve or reject multiple proposals in batches. One of the eight was removed from the ballot by the state Supreme Courts ruling on Sept. 7. The bundling, a technique that has been used before, is controversial. Critics have charged that the way ideas were linked was politically motivated, to log-rollŽ less popular ideas to more favorable ones to succeed. But the chair of the commissions powerful Style and Drafting Committee, Brecht Heuchan, a Scott appointee, has contended that the groupings will make it easier for voters to read and save time. Amendment 6, Rights of Crime Victims; Judges the “rst of the CRC items, links three proposals that would create a bill of rights for crime victims and set new requirements for judges. The bill of rights, modeled after Marsys Law in California, has the support of major Republican and Democratic lawmakers but has drawn criticism that the way victims rights are drawn might ”ood the justice system with additional responsibilities. The latter two proposals increase the mandatory retirement age for judges to 75 from 70, effective July 1, 2019, and would bar judges from deferring to administrative agencies interpretations of a rule or statute when ruling in cases involving those laws. (A Leon County judge ruled in favor of two sets of plaintiffs challenging this amendment on the ballot in August, saying its title and summary did not meet the required standard. Those two cases were merged and heard by the state Supreme Court, which ruled to retain this amendment on the ballot.) Amendment 7, First Responder and Military Member Survivor Bene“ts; Public Colleges and Universities would pull together three proposals, providing college tuition for the survivors of “rst responders and military members killed on duty, requiring university trustees to agree by a two-thirds super-majority to raise college fees (not including tuition) and establishing the state college system in the Florida Constitution. Universities are in the state Constitution, but state colleges (also known as community colleges) are not. (A Leon County circuit court judge ruled in early September that this amendment and two others be struck from the ballot because of its bundled status „ that decision is currently being appealed by the state.) Amendment 8, School Board Term Limits and Duties; Public Schools was struck from the ballot by the state Supreme Court Sept. 7. It would have rolled together three education-related proposals: a new eight-year school board term limits as well as expanded civics education in public schools, with a controversial plan to enable charter schools to bypass local school boards by expanding the states authority to control and supervise them. Supporters of the amendment said the language would have ensured charter schools are not unfairly denied, though opponents alleged it would shrink local boards autonomy and oversight. After the League of Women Voters sued saying the amendment should be removed from the ballot because its title and summary dont meet the required standard, the state Supreme Court ruled the amendment should be removed from the ballot. Amendment 9, Prohibits Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling; Prohibits Vaping in Enclosed Indoor Workplaces would tether a ban on oil and gas drilling in state-owned waters with a proposal to add vaping to the ban on smoking indoors. (A Leon County circuit court judge ruled in early September that this amendment and two others be struck from the ballot because of its bundled status „ that decision is currently being appealed by the state.) Amendment 10, State and Local Government Structure and Operation would link four proposals: one to have the states legislative session start in January rather than March in even-numbered years (the legislature currently changes its dates by statute), two that would create a counter-terrorism of“ce and make the state veterans affairs department constitutionally required, and a proposal that would require “ve county-level of“ces to be elected. All of the county positions „ including tax collectors, property appraisers, supervisors of elections and clerks of circuit court „ are already elected in many counties. But the of“ce of sheriff singles out Miami-Dade, which is the only county that does not elect a sheriff and instead has an appointed police director. (A case seeking to remove this amendment „ including affected counties like Miami-Dade, Broward and Volusia„ was taken up by the state Supreme Court, which ruled Sept. 7 that the amendment remain on the ballot.) Amendment 11, Property Rights; Removal of Obsolete Provision; Criminal Statutes would revise the Constitution to remove some language, including a provision that stops aliens ineligible for citizenshipŽ from owning property and wording approving a high-speed rail system. It would also remove the states Savings Clause, which prohibits retroactively applying the amendment of a criminal statute to sentencing for a crime committed before the change, and clarify that repealing a criminal statute would not necessarily affect the prosecution of that crime committed previously. (A Leon County circuit court judge ruled in early September that this amendment and two others be struck from the ballot because of its bundled status „ that decision is currently being appealed by the state.) Amendment 12, Lobbying and Abuse of Of“ce by Public Of“cers a stand-alone proposal, would bar public of“cials from lobbying both during their terms and for six years following, and restrict current public of“cers from using their of“ce for personal gain. Amendment 13, Ends Dog Racing is also a single proposal. It would end commercial dog racing involving wagering by 2020. There are about a dozen tracks in Florida, and the practice has drawn criticism from animal rights advocates who assert that the practice is inhumane. The Florida Greyhound Association has sued seeking to remove the amendment from the ballot. (A Leon County judge ruled Aug. 1 that this amendment should be removed from the ballot, saying that the measure misleads voters. The state appealed the decision to the state Supreme Court, which reversed that ruling and ordered the amendment remain on the ballot.)SUPPORTFROM PAGE 1 IMPORTANT DATESCHARLOTTE COUNTY Voter Registration Closing: Oct. 9 Early Voting: Oct. 22 to Nov. 4 General Election: Nov. 6 Last day to request mail-in ballot: 6 days before General Election SARASOTA COUNTY Voter Registration Closing: Oct. 9 Early Voting: Oct. 22 to Nov. 3 General Election: Nov. 6 Last day to request mail-in ballot: 6 days before General Election „ Source: Charlotte County and Sarasota County elections offices A memorial table was set up to show friends, neighbors and strangers how much Rory Dalgliesh loved life and serving in the military.

There is an empty lot next to my residence. I sent a letter to the outof-state owner and asked if he would like to sell it at current value plus a little extra. However, he responded that he wants his purchase price back from 2008 plus what he thinks it has appreciated since then. That would be 4 to 5 times its current value. Since Ive purchased my house, I have been manicuring this empty lot to keep it looking nice and to keep if from encroaching on my property. I understand Florida has an adverse possession clause that could be used in situations when a property owner will not sell to someone who has been using the property without permission. Can you tell me more about it, and how do I prove that I have been using the property? Answer: I still “ nd it a bit shocking that someone can take ownership of another owners property without compensation via adverse possession. Its not unique to Florida. I “ rst learned about it while studying for my California real estate license in 1978, and recently learned it originated with British law. Hopefully you read attorney Gary Singers column about this subject that appeared in last Sundays Sun Newspapers. Because I am not licensed to practice law, I cannot give you advice speci“ c to your situation. If you missed Garys column last Sunday, you can still read it in the electronic edition of The Sun Click the ArchivesŽ link; then click last Sundays edition. I am putting your question in the spotlight today because there are a disproportionately high number of local properties owned by out-of-state and out-of-country owners. In my community of Rotonda West, for example, 38 percent of the homes and vacant lots are owned by out-of-state and out-of-country residents. So, while you may “ nd what Im about to tell you is useful, the broader purpose is to show non-local property-owners ways to monitor their properties so that they can better protect themselves from adverse possession. My “ rst recommendation is that you monitor Google Earth. Google Earth is a free software application for your PC that displays an aerial photo of any address. The resolution is good enough that you are likely to notice unexpected pathways, trails, roads, sheds, etc. that would indicate another entity is using your property. If you do see an indication of unauthorized usage of your property, you will want to know how many years the unauthorized usage has been going on. Here is a trick that may provide you with an indication. Go to Google Earth and enter your propertys address to view a satellite image of your property. Now lets go back in time. Click on the ViewŽ menu near the top of the page. From the pop-down view menu, click Historical Imagery.Ž Notice the slider-bar at the upper-left of your screen. You can slide it anywhere from 1995 to the present year. As you move the slider towards the left, the image of your property will change to re” ect the way it appeared that year. If the images are clear enough and your area is updated annually, you can step back in time to ascertain the year that the unexpected pathways, trails, roads, sheds, etc. “ rst appeared. My second recommendation for monitoring your property remotely is to take advantage of the website for your countys property appraiser. Most counties give you access to aerial photos of each property. County images have a clear advantage because the property lines are superimposed on the photos. Counties have disclaimers that they do not warranty the accuracy, but I have also found them to be highly accurate. Charlotte County, like Google Maps, allows you to step back in time to view prior year images. In Charlotte County, you would begin searching for your property at (https://www.ccappraiser. com/rp_real_search. asp?). Parenthesis have been added for clarity, so disregard them. Once you have pulled up the record for your address, click the View MapŽ link at the bottom of the page. To change the year, click on the icon in the upper-left of the screen that looks like a 4-paned window. The words base mapŽ will appear when you hover over the icon. Once you click on it, select the year you want to go back to. One of the points Gary made in his column on this subject, is that giving someone permission to use your property disquali“ es them from invoking adverse possession. So that permission should be in writing to protect yourself. Brett Slattery is broker/ owner of Brett Slattery Realty LLC in Charlotte County.

For almost two decades, the coalition has run Empty Bowls, a series of events where participants make and paint pottery that is then sold for charity. All of the proceeds go to the Charlotte County Public Schools Homeless Education Project, the Homeless Coalition and Meals on Wheels. It all goes to helping “ght hunger in our community,Ž said Darcy Woods, event and volunteer coordinator for the coalition. Its a collaborative effort by countless individuals and businesses in the area.Ž The initial bowl-making event will happen at the Visual Arts Center on Oct. 6, and people of all ages and skill levels are welcome. No experience or skill level required „ a beginner will have a good time and “nd it easy and fun. As long as you are old enough to play with clay, you can make a bowl,Ž said VAC executive director Janet Watermeier. Families have a good time at this event while helping others.Ž The bowl making session starts at 1 p.m. and is led by Howard Hartke, a professional pottery instructor, and a team of potters. Each participant receives a ball of clay big enough for a variety of designs, according to Watermeier. Bowls are made by hand „ without a pottery wheel „ giving each creation a unique and personal touch and allowing guests to make whatever pops into their heads. The VAC has partnered with the coalition since the inception of the event, accord ing to Watermeier, and has continually provided the materials and location to make the bowls over the years. The Visual Arts Center is a community organization and we consider it part of our mission to support community efforts and other nonprofit organizations whenever we can,Ž she said. Once the bowls are crafted, they spend two weeks drying. Participants are invited to return on Oct. 20 to glaze and “nalize their work. After glazing, the bowls will be placed in the kiln. After kiln “ring, the bowls will be delivered to the Homeless Coalition for storage until the Empty Bowls event,Ž Watermeier said. In addition, Visual Arts Center potters, led by Keith Charron, have been working over the summer using the pottery wheel to make larger bowls to donate to the event that will be used on the night of the event to support fundraising efforts.Ž Other bowls are made by area elementary school students, according to Woods. All of the “nal products will be up for sale at Empty Bowls event in November at New Day Christian Church „ though parents can buy their little ones creations prior to the event, and the money will be donated to the coalition. Participants are asked to pay a fee of $3 per person or $5 dollars per family to cover clay and glaze costs, as well as a canned good per person to donate to the coalition. Those interested must register by calling the VAC at 941-639-8810. Tickets and T-shirts for the November Empty Bowls event will also be available to purchase. Woods estimates that over 400 bowls will be made for the event, bringing in upward of $20,000. Tickets are $12 and that gets you one of the handmade bowls and a bowl of soup from a local restaurant. We have about 30 restaurants we reach out to to donate soup for the event. There is also a bake sale, a silent auction and entertainment from school choruses,Ž she said. Students from Kingsway, Liberty and Neil Armstrong elementary schools will perform.Email: kgleason@sun-herald.comSoups on: Empty Bowls kicks off 19th year PHOTOS PROVIDED BY JANET WATERMEIERA father and son craft a bowl at a previous Empty Bowls event.

When you pay too much, you lose a little money that  s all. When you pay too little, sometimes you lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the job it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot it cant be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and, if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESThe eight weeks from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 are important for all Medicare bene“ciaries. Those dates mark the annual enrollment period when individuals can choose to stay with or reinstate traditional Medicare Parts A and B or switch to, change the provider of, or drop a Medicare Advantage Plan. I like to see people attend an educational Medicare seminar about three to six months before they turn 65 and “rst become eligible. And for people who are already enrolled, an ideal time to attend is before or early in the Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 annual enrollment period,Ž said veteran life and health insurance agent Ralph Temple. Because companies can and do change their rates and/or their plan bene“ts annually, it is also a good idea for bene“ciaries to review their plans every two or three years.Ž Temple will facilitate three Medicare 101Ž educational seminars at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, in Punta Gorda. Temples seminars are 10-11:30 a.m. Oct. 9, 11 and 17. This class is a primer for those approaching age 65 and who will be enrolling in Medicare,Ž Temple said. And its a timely review for those who are already enrolled in Medicare.Ž In the seminar, Temple explains the four criteria he feels bene“ciaries should consider when choosing a plan: their health, their “nances, their tolerance for networks and whether they change their residence seasonally. Temple will also explain how to use some of the readily available Internet self-help tools in the decision-making process. In addition, he will compare the advantages and disadvantages of traditional Medicare Parts A and B with a supplement versus Medicare Advantage Plans. He also explains the circumstances that might make a package advantageous to bene“ciaries. A Medicare educational seminar may be especially important this year as big changes are coming to Medicare in 2019. They include the closing of the donut hole in Medicare Part D, the prescription drug plan, and the restoration of an open enrollment period after the Dec. 7 end of annual enrollment, Temple said. The biggest change is in the prescription drug plan [Medicare Part D], because the coverage gap or donut hole is being phased out,Ž Temple said. Youll be paying a little bit more out of pocket for your drug plan, mostly due to increased drug costs, but as your total annual costs increase, your copays and coinsurance costs will decrease, which for many people can be signi“cant.Ž Medicare is also reinstating an open enrollment period from Jan. 1 to March 31,Ž Temple said. It provides bene“ciaries one more chance to change their Medicare Advantage Plan or disenroll from a Medicare Advantage Plan and go back to original Medicare, just in case there was something in their plan they werent aware of or they didnt have time to investigate during the annual enrollment period, or if their needs have changed.Ž By April 2019 all Medicare bene“ciaries are supposed to receive a new identi“cation card, if they havent already. The new card eliminates the Social Security number on the card and replaces it with a unique alpha-numeric identi“cation number. Unlike the marketing of speci“c Medicare Plans in ads on television, online or in newspapers, Temples seminar is purely educational. By law, Temple cannot use enrollment materials or speci“c product descriptions or solicit customers, and the class registration list must be kept con“dential.

By MARSHA MERCERSTATELINE.ORGWASHINGTON „ Half a century after Americans began “ghting hunger with monthly food stamps, the nations physicians and policymakers are focusing more than ever on whats on each persons plate. In the 21st century, food is seen as medicine „ and a tool to cut health care costs. The food is medicineŽ concept is simple: If chronically ill people eat a nutritious diet, theyll need fewer medications, emergency room visits and hospital readmissions. The food is medicine spectrum ranges from simply encouraging people to plant a garden and learn to cook healthfully, as state Sen. Judy Lee, a Republican, does in North Dakota „ We dont do policies about gardening,Ž she said „ to an intensive California pilot project that delivers two medically tailored meals plus snacks daily and offers three counseling sessions with a registered dietitian over 12 weeks. The California Legislature last year became the “rst in the nation to fund a large-scale pilot project to test food is medicine. The threeyear, $6 million project launched in April will serve about a thousand patients with congestive heart failure in seven counties. The state puts a huge amount of money into health care, and one of the biggest costs is medication,Ž Assemblyman Phil Ting, a Democrat and chairman of the Assembly Budget Committee, said in an interview. So the hope is people will live longer and this project will also reduce the need for medication.Ž The food is medicine concept has been around for a while. Since the 1980s, nonpro“ts such as Project Open Hand in San Francisco, Community Servings in Boston, Gods Love We Deliver in New York and MANNA or Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance in Philadelphia have provided medically tailored meals for patients with HIV, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. They are largely funded by donations and grants. Seeing the programs successes, some states are taking a larger role. Massachusetts is developing a food is medicine plan with a goal of integrating programs scattered around the state so more residents can bene“t. Legislative policy proposals are expected next spring. Food is medicine goes beyond traditional advice to eat more fruits and vegetables. Projects pay for people to purchase produce and offer nutrition counseling and cooking classes, so theyll know which foods to choose or avoid and how to prepare them. For example, watermelon is healthy for some, but not for a diabetic. On the local level, a community garden managed by a teenager in Sylvester, Georgia, aims „ with the help of the local hospital „ to improve the health of the town in the nations stroke belt.Ž Physicians in a dozen states write prescriptionsŽ for fruits and vegetables at farmers markets and groceries „ scripts that can be exchanged for tokens to buy produce. Food is medicine is an idea whose day has arrived,Ž said Robert Greenwald, faculty director of the Harvard Law Schools Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, one of the experts who testi“ed in January at the launch of the congressional Food is Medicine Working Group, part of the House Hunger Caucus. The Senate version of the farm bill includes Harvesting Health, a pilot project to test fruit-and-vegetable prescriptions. Its modeled on work by Wholesome Wave, a Bridgeport, Conn ecticut, Feeling FitPort Charlotte € Punta Gorda € North Port € Englewood € Arcadiawww.yoursun.comThe Conversation, an Australia-based academic journal, calls technology-facilitated abuse the new breed of domestic violence.Ž Womens Aid, a United Kingdom support agency for women and children, reported that 85 percent of those questioned said the abuse they received online from a partner or ex-partner was part of a pattern of abuse they also experienced of”ine. Locally, the Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies (C.A.R.E.) is addressing the issue in a free seminar, Technology Safety,Ž from 10 a.m. to noon this Wednesday (Oct. 3) at Charlotte Technical College. Presenter: Sharon Doncourt of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) will address privacy on the internet, social media, surveillance, cell phone risks, and methods for safe use of technology. My position with FCADV is to provide training on what we call the intersection between domestic violence and technology,Ž she said. Doncourt, who holds a masters degree in criminal justice, previously served as a law enforcement victim advocate Health & Hope DanMEARNSC PROVIDED BY MCCChildhood obesity is a problem in many parts of the world, including the United States and Canada. The 2015-2016 National Health and Nutritional Evaluation Survey from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the national childhood obesity rate among 2to 19-year-olds was 18.5 percent. Healthy lifestyles can help children achieve and maintain healthy weights into adulthood. Nutritious diets are an essential component of healthy lifestyles, and the American Academy of Pediatrics offers the following tips to parents who want to help their kids eat healthier. € Serve low-fat or no-fat milk, yogurt and cheese. Low-fat dairy products are low in calories, saturated fat and cholesterol but still provide high amounts of protein, calcium and various vitamins and minerals. € Serve starches in small batches The AAP notes that starchy foods, such as potatoes, pasta and rice, help the body use fat and cholesterol. Small amounts of such foods can be bene“cial additions to kids' diets. When serving such foods, avoid toppings such as butter, sour cream and gravy, which tend to be high in calories. Foods like cottage cheese, low-fat yogurt and parmesan cheese are low-calorie alternatives to more traditional toppings. € Choose lean meats as entrees When choosing entrees, parents should opt for lean meats, such as white meat chicken or turkey. Lean cuts of beef, pork or “sh also can be included in healthy diets. When preparing chicken, remove the skin and cut away fat, which also can be removed from pork. € Serve vegetable „ or broth-based soups. Vegetable„ or brothbased soups tend to be lower in calories and saturated fat than cream-based alternatives. When serving soups, particularly store-bought canned soups, parents should read labels and be mindful of the sodium content. Some canned soups include as much as two-thirds the daily recommended sodium intake in a single can. Large amounts of sodium can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease, and the CDC notes that roughly 90 percent of children in the United States eat too much sodium each day. € Bake, broil or grill foods. When preparing meals, parents can bake, broil or grill foods instead of frying them. Fried foods have been linked to a host of ailments, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease. In addition, when foods are fried in oil, they lose water and absorb fat, increasing their overall calorie count.

By RUSTY PRAYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENTSymbolic ”owers have long been part of the Walk to End Alzheimers, to be held Oct. 6, at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda. Each ”ower has a color, and each color has a meaning: orange to represent support for the cause; purple to symbolize a loved one lost to the disease; yellow to denote a caregiver for someone with Alzheimers or dementia; blue to indicate someone living with it. Approximately 500 participated in last years event in Charlotte County. Last year, Melissa Lockhart said, a new color was introduced: white to symbolize a cure. Seeing it kind of gives you chills because weve never before had a ”ower to represent a cure,Ž said Lockhart, chairwoman of the Charlotte County event for the second year. The event is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide. Its the worlds largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimers care, support and research. More than “ve million Americans are living with the disease, according to the Alzheimers Association. Lockhart is the owner of Helping Hands of Southwest Florida, a private-duty, nonmedical, in-home care referral company in Punta Gorda. She is president of OCEAN (Our Charlotte Elder Affairs Network), a coalition of public and private health, human and social service organizations that serves as a resource for Charlotte County seniors. But working as an Alzheimers advocate is my passion,Ž she said. Alzheimers is in my family,Ž Lockhart said. My great-grandmother passed away from it, and my grandmother just passed away from it. And with the work I do, Ive been around it for years.Ž Its the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. Which is why the appearance of the white ”ower is so signi“cant. Its a sign of hope,Ž Lockhart said. Registration for this years walk starts at 8 a.m. at Laishley Park. After ceremonies, the two-mile walk will begin at 9 a.m. Last year, the event raised about $35,000, Lockhart said. This years goal is $50,000. About 78 cents of every dollar raised stays in Charlotte County, Lockhart said.

According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, gluten is the general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and the hybrid grain triticale, which is produced by crossing wheat and rye. Many foods and beverages, including breads, soups, beer, and cereals, contain gluten. However, the CDF notes that many foods also are naturally gluten-free. Whats more, many naturally gluten-free foods are very nutritious. These foods include fruits, vegetables, “sh and seafood, dairy, beans, legumes, and nuts. And while it may seem as though people advised to avoid gluten must therefore remove grains and other starches from their diets, thats not the case. In fact, the CDF lists a number of naturally gluten-free grains and starch-containing foods on its website (www.celiac. org). For example, rice, cassava, corn, soy, potato, quinoa, nut ”ours, and millet are just a handful of the naturally gluten-free grains and starches that people who must avoid gluten can eat without fear of aggravating their conditions. What is gluten and why some people need to avoid it By RUSTY PRAYLETS GO CORRESPONDENTTo those with adequate insurance coverage, a cataract is like a bad tooth … get it out and get on with your day. But to those who dont have coverage and cant afford to pay the minimum $1,600 out of pocket, cataracts can be debilitating. For the third year, Frantz EyeCare, with offices in Punta Gorda, is addressing that need through the annual Day of Giving Back, scheduled for Oct. 5. This is something we see as need not only for area, bur nationally,Ž said Susan Frantz, marketing director of Frantz EyeCare. She is also the daughter of Dr. Jonathan Frantz, ophthalmologist and founder of the five-office practice. We offer free surgery to people well below the poverty line „ the people the system misses.Ž According to a press release, Frantz has partnered with Mission Cataract USA to provide free cataract surgery to qualifying patients. Mission Cataract USA is a nationwide program that assists in providing free cataract surgery to qualifying patients. Surgeries will be performed at the Suncoast Surgery Center in Fort Myers. A cataract develops when proteins in the eye form clumps, preventing normal movement of light through the eye to the retina. The lens becomes cloudy, and objects appear blurry, hazy, or faded in color. The Frantz EyeCare outreach has grown over the three years, Susan Frantz said. It has doubled the number of donated procedures from the first year to eight. The homeless population is included in the program. Last year, only five recipients qualified because many of those who qualified had scattered because of Hurricane Irma. We offer free surgery to people well below the poverty line „ the people the system misses,Ž Fr antz said. So many people need cataract surgery, which is the only way to remove cataracts. So many people we perform surgery on say, I want to see so I can work, provide for myself and give myself a home again.Ž The surgeries will be performed by Jonathan Frantz and Dr. George Corrent. Participating in this event is such a privilege,Ž Frantz said in a press release. Being a part of the life-changing procedures for these deserving patients is truly an honor.Ž Frantz founded the practice in 1994.

What conditions can it be used for and how effective is it? Do people who use medical marijuana need to be concerned about addiction? A: Medical marijuana, also called medical cannabis, can be helpful in treating a variety of conditions. The speci“c disorders it can legally be used to treat vary from state to state. To date, it appears to be most effective for treating muscle spasms, chronic pain and nausea. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a form of medical cannabis to treat severe childhood epilepsy. There is no convincing evidence that cannabis used to treat medical conditions leads to cannabis dependence. Marijuana comes from the Cannabis plant. In its leaves and buds are substances called cannabinoids. The plant contains more than 100 cannabinoids, but two are of particular interest for medical purposes: THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the primary mind-altering ingredient in marijuana that makes people high.Ž CBD does not trigger changes in the brain that lead to a high. Possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law in the U.S. However, 30 states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing medical cannabis in some form. To obtain medical cannabis in those states, your health care provider certi“es that you have a condition that allows you to buy medical cannabis from an authorized dispensary. The conditions that qualify for treatment with medical cannabis differ considerably among the states where its legal. Some states have only a few qualifying conditions, while others have dozens. A recent report from the National Academies of Science reviewed and summarized the medical literature published about medical cannabis, speci“cally examining its effectiveness and safety. It concluded that medical canna bis was particularly effective for easing chronic pain, especially pain caused by nerve damage. It can effectively control nausea and vomiting and is often used to manage those symptoms in people undergoing chemotherapy. Medical cannabis also has been shown to be useful in relieving painful muscles spasms caused by conditions such as multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injuries. The drug approved by the FDA for epilepsy is a liquid medication thats sold under the brand name Epidiolex. It can be used for patients age 2 and older to treat two rare and severe forms of epilepsy: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Epidiolex is a pharmacy-grade product composed almost entirely of CBD. Its the “rst FDA-approved drug that contains a puri“ed drug substance that comes from marijuana. Examples of additional conditions that may bene“t from treatment with medical cannabis, and are approved for its use in some states, include anxiety and depression, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), in”ammatory bowel disease, Tourette syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and autism. Additional study is needed to further de“ne the speci“c bene“ts medical cannabis may have for these and other related disorders. If you are interested in exploring medical cannabis as a treatment option for a disease or condition you have, talk with your health care provider. If your provider isnt familiar with it, ask if theres another clinician in his or her practice who can answer your questions. In states where medical cannabis is legal, the states department of health often has a website with details and resources to help patients who want to learn more about the bene“ts and risks of medical cannabis.Treatment with medical cannabis TNS PHOTOA Santa Ana, California, dispensary is open for business on Jan. 4.

The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5By RUSTY PRAYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENTIf the sequel comes close to measuring up to the original production, Exploring Morality IIŽ will be a big hit. The free, three-session workshop is scheduled for noon to 1:30 p.m. on three successive Tuesdays, Oct. 2, Oct. 9, and Oct. 16 at Florida Gulf Coast University Renaissance Center in Punta Gorda. Dr. Michael Boccia, a retired clinical psychologist, sponsored the “rst round of mental exercise in January. It worked out so well, he decided to reprise it. The workshop will offer individual discussion and group work on moral dilemmas based on the work of the late Lawrence Kohlberg, a psychologist and educator known for his theory of moral development. Januarys session exceeded my expectations,Ž Boccia said. I “gured wed have some good conversation about Lawrence Kohlbergs work and his theories (on) morality, but it went in some surprising directions. It was wonderful. I would hope to see more of the same this time.Ž The basic format for the sessions will be 30-minute discussion of co ncepts and goals, 40 minutes in which smaller groups will discuss a dilemma, and 20 minutes of wrap-up discussion. The classic case of Heinz is scheduled to be among the moral dilemmas put on the table for participants. Boccia intends to limit participation to between 17 and 20 people. In January, 17 participated. According to the website Simply Psychology, the story holds that Heinzs wife is near death from a rare form of cancer. One drug will cure her, but the drug is expensive „ prohibitively so for her husband, who desperately wants to save her. He goes to everyone he knows, borrows as much as he can, and follows every legal avenue, but he comes up short. The pharmacist wont give him a break. So, what does Heinz do? Does he accept the circumstances? Does he rob the pharmacy? Either way, there will be consequences. Or, as one person suggested at the January session, does he simply ask his wife her wishes? So many decisions we make are not so easily discernable as right or wrong,Ž Boccia said. Heinz is a great example. I know this session will be somewhat different from January. People have unique perceptions and ideas about what moral reason is, and when you look at these moral dilemmas, its amazing what people come up with. It generates so many ideas.Ž Conversations generated during the workshop are con“dential.

One such concern is poor balance. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, falling among seniors as a consequence, mainly, of poor balanceŽ results in the death of over 28,000 older adults each year. Furthermore, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older Americans and result in more than $31 billion in annual Medicare cost. With that said, there is good news. Falls can be prevented. Improving balance is a good way of helping to accomplish this. Furthermore, good balance is important for one to remain active, independent and productive. It is, therefore, vital that effort be made to ensure that its maintenance be a part of any attempt at ensuring safety, “tness and good health. Good balance is the result of several body systems working together to help us stand and move comfortably and with control. These systems include the eyes (visual system), the ears (vestibular system) and the network of proprioceptors responsible for providing an awareness of the bodys position in space (proprioception). Proprioceptors (nerve receptors) are found in muscles and the joint-supporting ligaments found throughout the body. The information they receive helps to facilitate balance as we stand and move. Should any of the systems required for balance fail to work properly, balance problems will result. Even when the balance systemsŽ are working correctly, a number of conditions and/or behavior can exist that, over time, help to make good balance impossible. Inactivity and poor diet are examples. Inactivity will, quite often, lead to weight gain, loss of muscle mass (tissue), joint pain and weakness, and a decrease in bone strength. These conditions will, ultimately, affect balance. Ones diet, if it fails to provide the body with the important elements it needs, will „ over time „ prevent organs and systems from functioning properly. For instance, when calcium is lacking in ones diet, a decrease in the density (compactness and strength) of bones becomes possible. Such a condition, when it exists, is an important contributor to poor balance. Presented below are a number of tips that have helped others regain and/or maintain good balance: € Make communicating with your health care provider an important thing you do. Helpful information and advice regarding your balance stateŽ can be had when you speak openly with your provider. Also, since the medication you take could affect your balance, negatively, it is important that you discuss that possibility with your physician. € Pay particular attention to the proper functioning of your eyes and ears. Have them checked by your doctor at least once each year. € Exercise regularly to ensure that your muscles and bones are kept strong. During the month of October, the Cultural Centers Fitness Center will offer an integrated program (general “tness combined with balance improvement) for its existing and new members. Interested persons are encouraged to call: 941-625-4175, ext. 263. € Ensure that your diet provides all the important nutrients required for good health. Place emphasis on protein, calcium and vitamins A and D. € Avoid smoking and the consumption of alcohol. € Get adequate amounts of rest and sleep. € Integrate balance stimulating activities into your life. Examples of such activities are walking, hiking and dancing. Maintaining good balance throughout the senior years is important and the Cultural Centers Fitness Center is available to help. For more information, call 941-625-4175, ext. 263.Maintaining good balance: Tips for seniors PHOTO PROVIDEDImproving balance is a good way of helping to prevent falls. nonpro“t that works with health centers in a dozen states where doctors write prescriptions for produce. If enacted, the federal government would spend $20 million over “ve years on grants to states or nonpro“ts to provide fruits and vegetables and nutrition education to low-income patients with diet-related conditions. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the food stamp program known as SNAP, helps reduce food insecurity for 39.6 million participants, but studies do not show SNAP improves nutrition. Instead, there seems to be a correlation between long-term food stamp participation and excess weight gain. Poor diet was No. 1 of 17 leading risk factors for death in the United States in 2016 „ a higher risk than smoking, drug use, lack of exercise and other factors, according to The State of US Health,Ž a comprehensive report by a team of academics published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in April. Dr. Kumara Sidhartha, an internal medicine specialist and medical director at Emerald Physicians on Cape Cod, Mass., conducted a prescription study with Medicaid participants in 2016 and 2017. In his study, he wrote prescriptions or vouchers for one group to buy $30 in produce a week at the farmers market, and gave another $30 in gasoline vouchers a week „ for 12 weeks. Both groups received cooking classes and nutrition counseling. Twenty-four people completed the program, and those who received the fruit and vegetable prescriptions showed improvements in risk factors for chronic disease „ better body mass index, total blood cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c, Sidhartha said. Patients and physicians are so used to the physician writing prescriptions for procedures and pills,Ž he said. This changes the health care culture of how the prescription is used.Ž Proponents of the California project hope it will demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of including medically tailored meals as an essential health bene“t covered by MediCal, Californias Medicaid program. This is potentially transformative because the health care system has been designed to cover acute services, and not many prevention programs are covered,Ž said Dr. Hilary Seligman, an associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco, one of two physician researchers who will evaluate the project by tracking participants medical records. For someone with congestive heart failure, their lives depend on their capacity to eat a lower salt diet,Ž Seligman said. Making the food as appealing as possible is very important.Ž Some legislators are skeptical about government moving into new food delivery systems. We need to feed the children who are hungry now. We need the backpack programs in school, the free and reduced-price breakfast and lunches to make sure that nobody is hungry today,Ž said North Dakotas Lee, chairwoman of the state Senate Human Services Committee, at a food is medicine session at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Hunger Partnership conference in July. But then we need to take those same children and help them learn how to do those things for themselves,Ž Lee said. Lets have a short-term solution: Lets feed people. And then lets have a longer-term solution: Help them feed themselves.Ž Everyone in her state could have a garden, even apartment-dwellers, and they can learn to cook, she said, adding that cooking is a skill thats been lost since schools there dropped home economics. Kids can learn and a parent can learn how to make a meal,Ž Lee said in an interview. Id rather “gure out a way to give them cooking lessons with food. Were not helping children become functional adults by giving them three meals a day.Ž Its not governments job to provide every meal, she said, adding, Thats the good news about North Dakota, compared with the Northeast and California.Ž Georgia state Sen. Renee Unterman, a Republican and chairwoman of the state Senate Health and Human Services Committee and co-chairwoman of the NCSL hunger partnership, suggested at the food is medicine session that a community garden with a medical purpose in her state „ and started by a child „ could be a model. Village Community Garden manager Janya Green was 12 when she started on the community garden as her 4-H Club project three years ago on 5 acres donated by the town of Sylvester, population 6,000, about 170 miles south of Atlanta. Anyone can pick free vegetables and fruit whenever they like. The garden features cabbage, carrots, kale, okra, bell peppers, squash, sweet potatoes, blackberries, blueberries, muscadine grapes and even bananas. Herbs are next. A pond is stocked with “sh, so residents can reel in healthy protein as well. A local county commissioner gave lumber for a 20by 60-foot stage. Phoebe Worth Medical Center installed an outdoor kitchen in the garden for chef-taught cooking classes. Darrell Sabbs, governmental affairs specialist at the medical center, hopes researchers from Emory University or the University of Georgia will study the health statistics of the neighborhood and gauge the gardens health effects.FOODFROM PAGE 1 Jason Mlnarik, D.O.Board Certi“ ed Orthopedic Surgeon Fellowship trained in Traumatic Injuries941-629-62621641 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte941-639-6699350 Mary Street, Punta Gordawww.AdvancedOrthopedicCenter.com 2003-2017 He could put Humpty Dumpty together again!!adno=3614879-1

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018Theres no doubt about it, doing kidney dialysis (peritoneal dialysis, or PD) at home for a month without a machine was a challenge. It was time-consuming and detailed. I pumped 2,000 milliliters of solution into myself and out of myself four times a day. This took 27 steps that had to be followed exactly one after the other. But mostly thats all one did „ spend an hour doing the process and 3 hours later doing it all over again and again and again in one day. After that first month, I got this wonderful machine called a cycler that would allow me to do dialysis at home at night while I slept. That sounded like a winner to me. That would allow me to go on with the rest of my life normally without having to worry much about the medical problems I was forced to confront on a daily basis. I would be free again, not having to cope with things medical. But then there was the dialysis machine. It wasnt the easiest thing in the world to learn how to work. It has a screen on the front of the machine that tells me what to do and how to do it, kind of. For the “rst-time user, it wasnt very clear. The “rst thing one does after turning on the machine is take a plastic bag containing a half-dozen ”exible plastic feeder lines with connections into designated places on the front of the machine and close a small door that activates the equipment. The ”uid that will be pumped into you by the new device goes in a heated cradle on top of the machine. Each step is explained in some detail on the machines scanner. The six-step process takes the new patient half an hour to 45 minutes to set up for the nights work. Once completed, the machine does its thing and you can go to bed. When you wake up next morning, there are a half-dozen or so additional steps one has to take to complete the process. If youre careful and dont screw up, they can be “nished in an additional 15 or 20 minutes. Then youre good for the day and can go about your business. The alternative is to go into the dialysis center three times a week for dialysis. The process takes three or four hours each visit. The staff at the center knows its stuff, does an outstanding job with smiles on their faces. The only thing you do is sit there and watch TV, read a book or sleep. Its all pretty boring „ the staff does all the work. The new machine at home will be a great improvement. It wont take up three or four hours a day three times a week, like the initial program did. In addition, I understand home dialysis is easier on your kidneys and heart. Its done every evening instead of every other day. Despite the month-long program without the machine at home, its worth the initial hassle. Of course, there is always the possibility you might be a candidate for a new kidney donated by some caring person. If you were to be that lucky and you end up in Tampa General Hospital with a donated kidney, youve hit a home run. Don Moore is a former editor and long-time columnist for Sun Newspapers who writes a weekly column about veterans and their military experience. He has written about his own heart transplant in 1999, and recently wrote a two-part series on his kidney dialysis experiences.

DonMOORECBy HEIDI STEVENsCHICAGO TRIBUNEOvershadowed by the cloud of lousy news is a ray of hope for transgender kids and the people who love them. The American Academy of Pediatrics announced its “rst-ever policy statement for parents and clinicians caring for transgender and gender-diverse children and adolescents. The statement, which is now available online, will be published in the October issue of Pediatrics. In its dedication to the health of all children, the American Academy of Pediatrics strives to improve health care access and eliminate disparities for children and teenagers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) of their sexual or gender identity,Ž the statement reads. Despite some advances in public awareness and legal protections, youth who identify as LGBTQ continue to face disparities that stem from multiple sources, including inequitable laws and policies, societal discrimination, and a lack of access to quality health care, including mental health care. Such challenges are often more intense for youth who do not conform to social expectations and norms regarding gender.Ž The AAP recommends a gender-af“rmingŽ approach that calls for the following: Access to family-based therapy and support for parents, caregivers and siblings of youth who identify as transgender. Electronic health records, billing systems and other noti“cations that respect the asserted gender identity of each patient. Insurance plans that offer coverage speci“c to the needs of youth who identify as transgender, including coverage for medical, psychological and, when appropriate, surgical interventions. Advocacy by pediatricians for policies and laws that promote acceptance of all children without fear of harassment, exclusion or bullying because of gender expression. As a parent, even when you struggle to understand and may not see eye-to-eye, your most important role is to offer understanding, respect and unconditional love for your child,Ž Jason Rafferty, lead author of the policy statement told me. This builds trust and puts you in a better position to help them through dif“cult times. Research has shown that if a transgender teen has even just one supportive person in their life they can go to, it greatly reduces their risk of suicide.Ž Population-based surveys estimate that 0.7 percent of teens ages 13 to 17 identify as transgender, according to the AAP. Studies indicate roughly 50 percent of teens who identify as transgender have attempted suicide. I talked to Rafferty, a Rhode Island-based pediatrician and child psychologist, about the policy statement, which strikes me as much-needed guidance for parents, and a sign of real progress toward a more inclusive world for all of our children to inherit. There is increasing recognition that gender and sexual development is a normal process for all children starting at an early age, and that some children will exhibit variations, similar to all areas of human health and behavior,Ž Rafferty said. Having a vocabulary around gender and sexual diversity facilitates conversations with parents, families and providers, allowing children to label some of their complicated feelings that otherwise may have been suppressed or hidden.Ž I asked if he expects pushback from pediatricians about the policy statement. No,Ž he replied. The messages of this policy statement are very much in line with the core principles of pediatrics, including the importance of using a nonjudgmental, family-based, developmentally appropriate approach. It emphasizes that transgender and gender-diverse children „ like all children „ need support, love and care from family, school and society. When supported and loved as they grow and develop, kids mature into happy and healthy adults.Ž Some parents will have an easier time accepting gender differences than others, of course. Some transgender youth expect immediate acceptance, but often family members proceed through a process of becoming more comfortable and understanding of the youths gender,Ž Rafferty said. The process often resembles the stages of grieving as it may require letting go of strongly held expectations for their child.Ž Pediatricians can help, Rafferty said, by promoting open dialogue and perspective-taking between young people and their parents. Gender af“rmative care,Ž he said, is based on the belief that all children bene“t from love and support „ a principle that is almost always a place where providers can meet parents to start a discussion.ŽPediatricians policy statement on transgender youth a real sign of progress: Understanding, respect and unconditional love adno=3616236-1 JOIN THE FIGHT FOR ALZHEIMERS FIRST SURVIVOR2018 Walk to End Alzheimers Punta Gorda Join the “ ght by starting a team at act.alz.org/PuntaGorda or by texting 51555 to ALZWALKRegistration: 8AM Opening Ceremony/Walk Start: 9AMSaturday, October 6thLaishley Park, Punta Gorda 450 Shreve St. Punta Gorda, FL 33950 LifeCareCenterOfPuntaGorda.comTo experience quality skilled nursing care or short-term therapy servicess, call 941.639.8771 today.WE'RE PROUD TO HAVE ACHIEVED A DEFICIENCY-FREE STATE SURVEY! 120666 adno=3616260-1

The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7Provided by BEVIN HOLZSCHUHBAYFRONT HEALTH PORT CHARLOTTE AND PUNTA GORDAWhile they may seem like a low-maintenance part of the body, your ears need regular care and protection. Cleaning is important, but so is safety from noise and injury, regular checkups, and knowing the signs of hearing loss. Use this checklist to periodically check in with your ears.CLEANING YOUR EARSClean your ears with extra care. Wipe the outer ear with a washcloth or antibacterial wipe and heed your moms advice: never put anything into your ear thats smaller than your elbow, as objects can injure the ear canal or eardrum. Earwax is actually valuable, as its the ears mechanism for self-cleaning. If you have a build-up of wax you suspect is blocking your hearing, see your doctor to have it removed. If you experience itching or pain in your ears, dont use topical treatments on your own. Consult with your primary care physician to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.NOISE AND SAFETYAt home or work, wear hearing protection during exposure to loud noise. This includes mowing the lawn, leaf blowing or using power tools. When using personal sound systems, the volume should be at a comfortable level. If someone else can hear what you are listening to, the volume is too high. If you scuba dive, learn and practice proper underwater techniques to avoid potentially damaging changes in the pressure inside your ears. When ”ying in an airplane, swallow and yawn frequently when the plane is ascending and descending to equalize pressure in your ears. If you have an upper respiratory problem such as a cold or sinus infection, take a decongestant a few hours before descending, or use a decongestant spray just prior to landing.INFECTIONS AND CONCERNSReduce the risk of ear infections by treating upper respiratory (ears, nose, throat) infections promptly and completely. Some illnesses and medications can affect your hearing. If you experience sudden hearing loss or have constant sound in your ears or head, see a physician as soon as possible. Drainage from the ear is not normal and typically suggests infection. See a physician as soon as possible. While they are more common in children than adults, everyone is susceptible to ear infections,Ž said Maria Compton, D.O., otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist) with Bayfront Health Medical Group. However, while childrens ear infections are often minor and pass quickly, adult ear infections can be a sign of a more serious health problem.Ž There are three main types of ear infections, and they correspond to the three main parts of the ear: inner, middle, and outer. Inner ear infection may actually be a case of in”ammation, and not an actual infection. In addition to ear pain, symptoms often include dizziness, nausea or vomiting, and can be a sign of a more serious condition, such as meningitis. Middle ear infection is caused by ”uid trapped behind the eardrum, causing the eardrum to bulge. In addition to ear pain, you may have the feeling of fullness in your ear, as well as some ”uid drainage. Symptoms can be accompanied by a fever and trouble hearing while the infection is active. Outer ear infection is typically the result of water remaining in the ear after swimming or bathing, where the moisture becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Symptoms often start with an itchy rash, and the ear may become painful, red or swollen. If your only symptom is an earache, you may want to wait a day or two before seeing a doctor as ear infections can sometimes resolve on their own. If the pain persists or you are also running a fever, see your doctor as soon as you can. If ”uid is draining from your ear or youre having trouble hearing, you should also seek medical attention. If you need assistance “nding a physician, visit www. BayfrontMedicalGroup. com, or call 941-833-1777 to schedule an appointment with an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist.Listen up to protect your hearing and ear health with the Citrus County Sheriffs Of“ce. She understands how abusers use certain platforms of technology „ such as cell phones, computer software and social media „ to continue abusing those who survive domestic violence initially. The goal of my training is to shed some light on how this technology is being used „ or I should say misused „ to stalk, monitor or harass survivors and how we can work with survivors to increase their privacy and try to safety plan around their use of technology,Ž Doncourt said. Doncourt emphasized that the FCADV does not advocate that victims of technology-facilitated abuse abandon social media or personal communication devices. Technology is a wonderful thing,Ž she said. We never want to discourage anybody from using social media or other technology. What we really want is to teach them how to use it safely.Ž At the free seminar, Doncourt will address what victims should take into consideration when posting online or acting on friend requests. She will explain the importance of adjusting the privacy settings on personal devices and being aware of the information victims display on social media and how that information can be used against them. My goal is to empower victims with the knowledge and ability to make decisions on what will keep them safe,Ž she said. She will address how technological trends can be compromised, including cellphones, GPS trackers, surveillance cameras, and IOT (Internet of Things) devices such as virtual personal assistants (Alexa), smart cars and appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software and connectivity. As technology grows and develops and makes our lives easier and more convenient, it also opens up doors for it to be misused and facilitate abusive behavior,Ž Doncourt said. We rely so much on technology, with online banking, online everything, we forget that sometimes it can be a threat to our everyday lives.Ž Free and open to the public, the C.A.R.E seminar is being held in the auditorium at Charlotte Technical College, 18150 Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte.

By MARIE G. MCINTYRETRIBUNE NEWS SERVICEQ: I was recently “red for making too many mistakes. Although my manager followed the required disciplinary steps, I believe the entire process was ”awed. In my opinion, I was targeted and treated unfairly. Several months ago, I learned that my manager had directed a coworker to review all my work. This person was not my supervisor and had no right to check on me. When I confronted my boss, she replied that an internal audit had shown I was making too many errors. The mistakes my coworker found were documented and used as evidence against me. I was given several warnings and eventually let go. When I complained to human resources and upper management, they supported my termination. How I could have kept my job in light of this unfair treatment? A: Regarding performance issues, employees and managers often see things differently. What you view as unfair treatmentŽ your employer would undoubtedly describe as preventing mistakes.Ž Granted, your manager should have advised you that a colleague would be reviewing your work. Discovering this unexpectedly must have been embarrassing. However, the real issue is that you were making critical errors, so “xing that problem was the key to remaining employed. When presented with a performance warning, most people react in the worst possible way. They argue, get defensive and insist their boss is wrong. But this automatic pushback, while understandable, only convinces management that the employee didnt get the message and is therefore unlikely to change. For job security, a better response is to acknowledge concerns, clarify expectations and request a time to assess progress. Employees who receive written warnings must also understand that HR and upper management will have already approved that step. Supervisors are seldom allowed to take disciplinary action independently. For your own bene“t, make an effort to detach from the past and start thinking about the future. The only reason to focus on your former job is to learn the lessons that might help you succeed in the next one. Q: Im afraid the current political climate may interfere with my getting a job. After spending many years in government, I would like to “nd a position in the private sector. However, most of my experience has been partisan in nature, working either on national campaigns or in the White House many years ago. Given the deep political divisions today, I worry that people with opposing views will automatically reject my resume. I have considered using vague terms to describe my work, but that might look as though Im lying. What would you suggest? A: Crafting a completely nonpartisan description of your background could render your resume meaningless. However, emphasizing positions instead of politics might make it appear more neutral. For example, if you list communications directorŽ with the White House as your employer, the dates will obviously reveal which party was in power. But if you describe your responsibilities without using political terms, a prospective employer may disregard your party affiliation. Also, you might be overestimating your obstacles. While a quarter of the population may reject you out of hand, folks on the other end of the spectrum will consider your politics a plus. And those who are uncommitted will primarily be concerned with your quali“cations.Moving on from being fired for poor performance By LEE SCHAFERSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS) Critics of the Trump administration have spent the past few months jabbing at its claims of a monster success with the economy simply by pointing out that wage growth seems to be going sideways, and economist Aaron Sojourner of the University of Minnesota has joined in. The administration insists wages are increasing. Sojourner and many others, meanwhile, seem pretty sure that if so, the growth rate rounds to zero „ although thats not even close to the best point he makes about this whole debate. Sojourner has been back at the universitys Carlson School of Management for a while after working in Washington for an academic year as part of the Council of Economic Advisers, overlapping with both the Obama and Trump administrations. Hes posting on social media now, he said, because hes been immersed in the recent data about work and wages, a rare advantage for a professor. Sojourners an economist, not a sharpelbowed pundit, and while he clearly leans left hes a relatively gentle poster on Twitter. With the notable exception of a video of a chicken driving a car (not really enough space to explain that one), his posts are likely to include graphs of common economic data, maybe from the St. Louis Feds economics database. Its not easy to work up much interest in the arguments of wonks, but, on the other hand, slow wage growth continues to be puzzling, particularly so far into a long economic expansion. After all, employers complain all the time about how hard it is “nd workers. The unemployment rate has declined more or less steadily for nearly nine years now and is now as low as its been since the dot-com boom. Yet its really hard for a lot of Americans to get a meaningful raise, at least one that exceeds the price increases for the things they need to buy. There are explanations for slow average wage growth that you might expect, from the impact of global competition on the thinking of costconscious U.S. managers to how automation has eliminated lots of relatively well-paid middle skillŽ jobs. But whatever the cause, slow wage growth was one of the main justi“cations for cutting corporate taxes last year, according to proponents in the Trump administration. Business tax cuts would, hopefully, lead to sustained wage growth, although it seems far less well understood that they may not have meant wage growth right away. To get a handle on what Sojourner and other Rising costs are canceling out wage increases for most workersWAGE | 8 adno=3615844-1 Mission Driven...

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 economists are talking about, its probably best to start with the wage numbers reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the agency that among other things produces the closely watched monthly jobs report that always makes the news. Real average hourly earnings, meaning wages adjusted for in”ation, in August for all employees increased 0.1 percent from July, the BLS said this month. So thats better than going backward. However, for the more than 80 percent of workers lumped into the category of production and nonsupervisory employees, there was an increase in average hourly earnings in August that was offset exactly by how much prices increased. So on average most workers were running in place. And for ordinary workers over the last year, real average hourly earnings actually decreased 0.1 percent. The numbers comparing this past July to the same month a year earlier showed a bigger decrease in in”ation-adjusted hourly wages. Never mind these BLS numbers, the White House Council of Economic Advisers suggested in a report this month, because they dont paint a complete enough picture. In this view, the conventional numbers miss things like the growing value to workers of non-wage compensation, like retirement plan contributions and health insurance, and they use the wrong measure of in”ation to judge the purchasing power of wages. The CEA report also argued that its fair to take into account the increases in take-home pay due to the tax cut passed at the end of last year. Altogether the annualized after-tax compensation growth, taking in”ation into account, is at least 1 percent, and that rises to 1.4 percent after adjusting take-home pay for the 2017 tax cut. The thing that seems to clearly lie out of bounds in this report is the tax cut argument, because thats not the way that economists usually keep track of in”ation-adjusted wage growth. As for the rest of these points, well, maybe well-intentioned economists cant all agree on them. Theres three or four different measures of wage growth. Theres three or four different measures of price in”ation,Ž Sojourner said, adding that he thinks the consumer price index for urban consumers seems to capture pretty well changes in the prices of what American households really need. So theres four times four different combinations you could choose, and you can rationalize it any number of ways, but the fact is that all give you answers that are in a pretty narrow range,Ž he added. No matter what measure you use, real wage growth is low, like close to zero, and lower than it was a couple of years ago. Those things arent in dispute.Ž Meanwhile, theres also no dispute that corporate profits are soaring, up more than 16 percent in the second quarter, according to the Commerce Department. The big reason, of course, is the 2017 tax law, which cut corporate taxes by about one third in the quarter compared to the prior year. No need to bother choosing between the CPI or the Federal Reserves favorite price inflation indicator to see that theres been a big jump in inflationadjusted pr o“ts going to the owners of U.S. corporations. Look at whats happening. The issue is not negative 0.2 percent or positive 0.2 percent in real wage growth. The policy effects are not there,Ž Sojourner said. The policy effects are ƒ the corporate profits.Ž With this observation, Sojourners pointing to a better question to ask than whether or how much real wages are growing: With workers maybe inching ahead or maybe not, and corporate pro“ts surging, arent there better economic policy issues to argue about?WAGEFROM PAGE 1 By LIZ REYERSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS)Q: My boss needs to delegate more. She holds onto work, and doesnt involve staff (not just me) in meetings and outcomes. Most of the time Im not certain what is going on and what I should engage in ƒ until she brings me in at the last minute. „ Dean, 50, senior “nancial analyst A: Use your track record of last-minute saves to make a case for earlier engagement. Figuring out the best way to approach it will depend partly on the reasons for her failure to delegate. The good news for you is that it doesnt appear to be trustrelated, since she turns to you in the end. For many busy managers, time is the culprit. It may seem to take longer to explain a task than to just do it. While this may sometimes be true, its a vicious cycle that limits team development and turns managers into workaholics. This is especially a problem on larger-scale tasks. If preliminary work is needed, such as data gathering, or if multiple review cycles are scheduled, delaying the work can easily threaten timelines. So what do you do if you dont know what you dont know? If you dont have regular staff meetings or one-on-ones, request them. In the spirit of bringing solutions, offer to arrange them, including a general agenda that covers the all-important topics of whats happening now,Ž and whats coming up next?Ž Then use these meetings to ask for ways the team can take portions of the work to ease her burden. Talk to her about ways you can be more effective. She may be trying to cover meetings herself in a misguided effort to protect your time. Try making the case for the value of being in the start of a project. The bene“ts are myriad „ you understand the needs, can ask questions, and others will be able to contact you if needed. Theres also the possibility that shes a control freak. She may be trying to hold onto everything simply because shes uncomfortable with the possibility that someone else may have a different way of doing something. In that case, offer to follow her guidance and introduce ideas for different ways in advance to build her comfort. Have you and your co-workers talked about this? If not, consider bringing it up in a neutral way just to get a sense of how others are feeling. Dont vent, there could be a risk that itd get back to her in an unfavorable way. Also consider the possibility that you work for an information is powerŽ type. This is not a win in the boss lottery, but it certainly happens. You can choose to play that game, offering information to her in order to get some in return. You can also cultivate other information sources around the organization so that youre not as dependent on her. This is a smart step, in any case. Regardless of the root cause, plan your schedule in a way that allows for her lack of communication. Build in some cushions so that you can continue to pitch in while covering your other essential tasks.How to handle a boss who wont delegate until the last minute JOBS 7178 LEXUS 2015 LEXUS RX 350 SUV $29,500 WHITE, 26KMI., BK-UP, BLINDSPOTPWRTAILGATE, FACTORY WARR. 5 OTHERSAVAIL.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS Michelle Obama urges young voters to take their power backSee page 2 Sunday, September 30, 2018 By REGINA GARCIA CANOASSOCIATED PRESSLAS VEGAS „ An image of Angelica Cervantes son donning a black-and-yellow security guard T-shirt is one of dozens of smiling photos tacked to walls in a Las Vegas garden decorated with ribbons, cowboy boots, horseshoes and rubber bracelets. Cervantes visits every other week to gaze at the photo that has withstood the desert sun for almost a year, and to ask her son, Erick Silva, to watch over her, his stepfather and his siblings. Cuidanos,Ž she begs him, sometimes tearfully. Silva was one of 58 people killed Oct. 1, 2017, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. For their families and those who survived the massacre at a country music festival this garden created by volunteers in the days that followed is a place to mourn and heal. It gave me a space to talk with him, and he is there with his angels,Ž Cervantes said, referring to the other victims. Sometimes, I come across (another mother) there. Some ask me how he was. Talking about him makes me proud.Ž Among the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip, theres no indication of the bloodshed that took place there a year ago. The festival grounds are fenced, and green screens block any views to the inside. The ” owers, ” ags, wreaths and other items that crowded a nearby road median and the Welcome to Fabulous Las VegasŽ sign have long been removed. Today, the garden with 59 trees „ one for each victim plus an oak representing life „ is the only permanent public space in the Las Vegas area created in memory of the victims. It sits a few feet from a bus stop and an adult store and miles from the shooting site. The quarter-acre space was slated to be a dog park, but in the days after the shooting, the dirt lot was leveled, concrete bricks placed, and trees, shrubs, purple pansies, red and white roses and bright pink petunias were planted. A Remembrance WallŽ was hammered together from wooden pallets. The wooden wall was recently replaced with a set of metal and faux-wood structures. The photos and several items from the original wall were transferred over. A fountain is now working, and a bluestone sculpture of a pair of angel wings bearing the initials of each victim was recently added. Volunteers on Saturday Garden provides place to mourn Las Vegas shooting victims AP PHOTOIn this Friday photo, a photo of Las Vegas shooting victim Erick Silva, center, hangs on a wall at a memorial garden under construction in Las Vegas.

By COLLEEN LONG and LAURIE KELLMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Moments after pivotal Sen. Jeff Flake announced he would vote to con“ rm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the Arizona Republican was confronted with the consequences. Two tearful women cornered Flake as he got on an elevator Friday, pleading for him to reconsider his support for the appeals court judge whos been accused of sexual assault when he was a teenager. By the end of the day, Flake had, adding a condition to his promise to vote for Kavanaugh. Hed do so, Flake said, if the vote was delayed a week so the FBI could investigate credible allegationsŽ against the nominee. It wasnt clear that the raw, emotional elevator exchange changed Flakes his mind by itself. But its hard to forget. And Flake didnt deny it was one of the factors that made an impression. Look at me and tell me that it doesnt matter what happened to me,Ž said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher. Ana Maria Archila pointed her “ nger at Flake while she appeared to keep the elevator door from closing. On Monday, I stood in front of your of“ ce,Ž Archila, co-executive director of the nonpro“ t Center for Popular Democracy Action, told Flake. I told the story of my sexual assault. I told it because I recognized in Dr. Fords story that she is telling the truth. What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court.Ž Flake said he had to go to a hearing. He was returning to the committee room where he and 20 colleagues had heard hours of testimony Thursday from Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor who told them Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago.

By NINIEK KARMINIASSOCIATED PRESSPALU, Indonesia „ Residents too afraid to sleep indoors camped out in the darkness Saturday while victims recounted harrowing stories of being separated from their loved ones a day after a powerful earthquake triggered a tsunami that unleashed waves as high as 20 feet, killing hundreds on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. The of“ cial death toll stood at 384, with all the fatalities coming in the hard-hit city of Palu, but it was expected to rise once rescuers reached surrounding coastal areas, said disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. He said others were unaccounted for, without giving an estimate. The nearby cities of Donggala and Mamuju were also ravaged, but little information was available due to damaged roads and disrupted telecommunications. Nugroho said tens to hundredsŽ of people were taking part in a beach festival in Palu when the tsunami struck at dusk on Friday. Their fate was unknown. Hundreds of people were injured and hospitals, damaged by the magnitude 7.5 quake, were overwhelmed. Some of the injured, including Dwi Haris, who suffered a broken back and shoulder, rested outside Palus Army Hospital, where patients were being treated outdoors due to continuing strong aftershocks. Tears “ lled his eyes as he recounted feeling the violent earthquake shake the “ fth-” oor hotel room he shared with his wife and daughter. There was no time to save ourselves. I was squeezed into the ruins of the wall, I think,Ž said Haris, adding that the family was in town for a wedding. I heard my wife cry for help, but then silence. I dont know what happened to her and my child. I hope they are safe.Ž Its the latest natural disaster to hit Indonesia, which is frequently struck by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis because of its location on the Ring of Fire,Ž an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Paci“ c Basin. In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 earthquake off Sumatra island in western Indonesia triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries. Last month, a powerful quake on the island of Lombok killed 505 people. Palu, which has more than 380,000 people, was strewn with debris from the earthquake and tsunami. A mosque heavily damaged by the quake was half submerged and a shopping mall was reduced to a crumpled hulk. A large bridge with yellow arches had collapsed. Bodies lay partially covered by tarpaulins and a man carried a dead child through the wreckage. The city is built around a narrow bay that apparently magni“ ed the force of the tsunami waters as they raced into the tight Indonesia tsunami death toll nears 400, expected to rise AP PHOTOA man stands amid the damage caused by a tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, Saturday.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018By KELLI KENNEDYASSOCIATED PRESSCORAL GABLES „ At a voter registration rally Friday, “red-up former “rst lady Michelle Obama urged a predominantly youthful crowd at the University of Miami to take their power backŽ and bridge the gap between frustration over the political climate and actually doing something about it.Ž After a celeb-studded program that included former Destinys Child member Kelly Rowland, gospel singer Erica Campbell and Key & PeeleŽ star KeeganMichael Key, Obama ticked off a litany of dismal statistics about low voter turnout, especially during midterm elections like the ones coming up in November. Americans cast more votes than ever in the 2008 election, but even so, more than 80 million still didnt vote. Only about 40 percent of the population typically votes during midterm elections. The 2014 midterms saw the lowest voter turnout since World War II, with less than 37 percent, she said. When a huge chunk of the population sits out of the process, why are we surprised when our politics dont re”ect our values?Ž she told a crowd of nearly 5,000. No candidate names were mentioned at the event, nor were any political parties as Obama stressed she wasnt there to tell anyone who to vote for.Ž Instead, she was eager to change what she said has become a dangerous cycle when it comes to votingŽ of frustrated people who get worked up about politics, but eventually sit home and do nothing. And she addressed naysayers who contend their vote doesnt matter, noting that a 2016 city commission race in Cocoa Beach was decided by eight votes. In South Daytona, she said, a mayoral race came down to just “ve votes. Five votes, yall. ... Every vote matters. It really does.Ž Obama recently launched When We All Vote, a national, nonpartisan not-for-pro“t organization. Fridays event in Miami capped a week of grass-roots activism with 2,000 events in 49 states. About two dozen students from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School wearing matching shirts sat together at the event. The Parkland students have been part of a massive state and national push to register young voters in the wake of a February shooting at their school that left 17 dead, rallying hundreds of thousands across the country and in D.C. for March For Our Lives. But its unclear what impact they will have on the midterm elections. As of Aug. 1, there were nearly 373,000 newly registered voters this year, according to an analysis by University of Florida political science professor Daniel Smith. He said that roughly 1 out of 3 of those new voters is under the age of 30, but he cautioned that it appears to be a natural ebb and ”owŽ of voter registration that mirrors trends in previous years. He pointed out that many election of“cials hold drives that target graduating high school seniors. Stoneman Douglas senior Drew Schwartz attended the rally and said hell be voting for the “rst time in November. The 17-year-old said common sense gun laws are among the issues most important to him. One of the most important issues is representation and for people to make sure their of“cials are representing their beliefs and not supporting their own interests,Ž he said.Michelle Obama urges voters to take their power back AP PHOTOFormer “rst lady Michelle Obama speaks at a rally to encourage voter registration on Friday in Coral Gables. Newborn breast-fed by wrong mom in hospital mix-upORANGE PARK (AP) „ A new mother says a mix-up at a north Florida hospital caused her newborn son to be breastfed by another mother. Television station WJXT reports that Joii Browns son was taken from her Thursday to be circumcised. After her son wasnt returned for an hour and a half, Brown says a nurse told her that they had given him to the wrong mother before they discovered their mistake. Brown says the nurses at Orange Park Medical Center told her the other mother had breast-fed her son for two minutes before the mix-up was discovered. The hospital said in a statement to the WJXT that it is doing everything to support Browns family. Brown says she is speaking with attorneys.Florida woman charged in toddlers death in hot carORLANDO (AP) „ A Florida woman has been charged with negligent manslaughter in the death of her 1-year-old daughter, who was left for hours in a hot vehicle. Kit Noelle Pollard was found dead inside the SUV Friday at a Sanford gas station. Seminole County jail records show 29-year-old Kailyn Pollard of Sorrento was held without bail Saturday. According to an arrest report, Pollard forgot to take her daughter to daycare Friday morning and left her in the vehicle for seven hours as temperatures climbed above 90 degrees. Jail records did not show whether Pollard had an attorney. The girl was the second hot car death reported Friday in Florida. In a separate case, a 4-year-old boy died after being found alone in a locked car outside an Orange County school.Dog dies after touching lid of electrified containerSARASOTA (AP) „ A Florida dog that touched the lid of an electri“ed container that holds the wiring for street lights during a walk has died. News outlets report Lynn McDermott took the Great Pyrenees on a walk in the rain Saturday in Sarasota. The around 70-pound dog touched the pull boxs lid and collapsed. McDermott reached down and received a shock. Fire“ghters gave the dog chest compressions and put an oxygen mask over its snout, but it died on the scene. Public Works Director Doug Jeffcoat says upon inspection, the metal lid became electri“ed because of a faulty wire underground had come into contact with it. The city says they “xed the faulty wire and grounded the metal lid. Precautionary safety inspections on other boxes are also being performed. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE By CARA ANNAASSOCIATED PRESSJOHANNESBURG „ The risk of the deadly Ebola virus spreading from Congo is now very highŽ after two con“rmed cases were discovered near the Uganda border, the World Health Organization says. The outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever in northeastern Congo is now larger than the previous one in the northwest and more complicated to contain because of a dense, highly mobile population and a rebel threat so serious that some health workers say theyre operating in a war zone. A deadly attack in Beni, the heart of Ebola containment efforts, forced the work to be suspended for two days earlier in the week. That led the WHOs emergencies chief, Peter Salama, to warn that insecurity, public de“ance about vaccinations and politicians fanning fears ahead of elections in December could create a perfect stormŽ leading the outbreak to spread. As of Friday the outbreak had 124 con“rmed Ebola cases, including 71 deaths. The previous outbreak in Congos Equateur province, declared over just a week before the current one was announced, had 54 con“rmed cases, including 33 deaths. This is the “rst time an Ebola outbreak has occurred in this part of Congo, affecting the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri. Health workers have had to combat various rumors and fears about the disease, which spreads via the body ”uids of those infected, including the dead. Some patients have left health facilities to seek alternative care, WHO said in a statement on Thursday. One infected person moved into a red zoneŽ where security is poor and carrying out Ebola response efforts is extremely dif“cult, if not impossible.Ž The virus moved near the Uganda border after a woman who had participated in burials of Ebola victims refused a vaccination in Beni and disappeared, local of“cials have said. She died on Sept. 20 at a hospital in Tshomia on Lake Albert, which separates the countries. The second con“rmed Ebola case in Tshomia was the womans partner, WHO said. The U.N. refugee agency on Friday said it was gravely concernedŽ for civilians safety in North Kivu, which has the highest number of displaced people in Congo with an estimated more than 1 million. In August about 13,000 people ”ed their homes in the Beni area alone because of insecurity, the refugee agency said. Meanwhile some 200 refugees from Congo are arriving each day in Uganda, a tiny fractionŽ of the everyday ”ow of traders and others between the countries, it said. While substantial progress has been made, the situation is precarious,Ž WHO said of overall Ebola containment efforts. It continues to recommend against any travel restrictions. Uganda, which has had “ve Ebola outbreaks since 2000, says it is preparing to begin vaccinations as needed. The health ministry in Congo, which is facing its 10th outbreak, says more than 12,000 people have been vaccinated so far.WHO: Risk of Ebolas spread from Congo now very high AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 9 “le photo, health workers walk with a boy suspected of having the Ebola virus at an Ebola treatment centre in Beni, Eastern Congo. Iran airs video of encounter with US carrier in key straitTEHRAN, Iran (AP) „ Irans state TV has broadcast footage purporting to show a close encounter between the Revolutionary Guards navy and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, the passageway for nearly a third of all oil traded by sea. Saturdays footage is likely meant as a show of strength amid new U.S. sanctions on Iran and the Trump administration plans to bring Iranian oil exports down to zero. In the video, Guard speedboats are seen closing in on the U.S. carrier. Iranian sailors then warn the Americans over radio communication to keep well clearŽ of the Guard patrol boats and say they advise the Americans to refrain from the threat or use of force in any manner.Ž The U.S. navy didnt immediately comment the video.Leading Brazil candidate leaves hospital after stabbingSAO PAULO (AP) „ The leading candidate in Brazils presidential race has been discharged from the hospital where he was being treated for a knife wound to his abdomen. Far right congressman Jair Bolsonaro suffered intestinal damage and severe internal bleeding after the Sept. 6 attack at a campaign event and has undergone multiple surgeries. His release from a Sao Paulo hospital was delayed by a day due to a minor infection. The hospital said in a statement he was discharged Saturday morning. The countrys “rst round of voting is on Oct. 7. But its not clear if or how quickly Bolsonaro will get back on the campaign trail. Womens groups are planning a series of protests later Saturday against him.

General Assembly, and rejected the notion that India is sabotaging peace talks with Pakistan, calling it a complete lie.Ž Sushma Swaraj pointed to the fact that Osama bin Laden had been living quietly in Pakistan before he was found and killed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs, and said the mastermind of the 2008 attack in Mumbai in which 168 people died still roams the streets of Pakistan with impunity.Ž In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border to the west,Ž Swaraj said. Our neighbors expertise is not restricted to spawning grounds for terrorism, it is also an expert in trying to mask malevolence with verbal duplicity.Ž Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart were supposed to meet on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly this week. India called it off only one day after it was announced, following the killing of an Indian border guard in the disputed region of Kashmir. The two South Asian nations, always uneasy neighbors, face off under particularly tense conditions in that region at a line of controlŽ that cuts through a rugged mountain range. The announcement of the planned meeting had been considered an encouraging sign for restarting stalled talks between the nuclear-armed South Asian neighbors. New Delhi had agreed to hold the meeting in response to a letter from newly-elected Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has written his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, stressing the need for positive change, a mutual desire for peace and a readiness to discuss terrorism. There was no immediate of“cial reaction by the Pakistani government to the speech. Pakistans foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, was due to speak later Saturday.Volcano spews ash on Mexico CityMEXICO CITY (AP) „ Ash spewing from the Popocatepetl volcano has reached the southern neighborhoods of Mexicos capital. The National Center for Disaster Prevention warned Mexicans on Saturday to stay away from the volcano after activity picked up in the crater and it registered 183 emissions of gas and ash over 24 hours. The center was monitoring multiple rumblings and tremors. Images on social media showed thin layers of ash coating car windshields in neighborhoods of Mexico City such as Xochimilco. Geophysicists have noticed an increase in activity at the volcano that sits 45 miles southeast of the capital since a 7.1-magnitude earthquake rocked central Mexico in September 2017. The volcano known as Don GoyoŽ has been active since 1994. BOLSONARO HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDWORLD/STATE NEWS

Early this year, you wrote an interesting column about H&E Equipment Services. When I crunched the data in February, it looked strong on my technical charts. I bought 300 shares at $36, and in a short time frame, it ran to $45. I didnt take my fast pro“t, and its now down to about $34, so I have a small loss. I bought H&E because you said it would participate in Donald Trumps plans to rebuild our infrastructure. What are your thoughts now? Should I buy more H&E shares, or should I sell? „ HW, Pensacola, Fla. Dear HW: Ive always wondered how much deeper the oceans would be if we didnt have any sponges. As a long-term investment „ three to “ve years „ H&E Equipment Services (HEES-$34.66) appears to be a good candidate. But as a short-term investment, HEES kinda sphinx. I dont know boo, beans or bupkis about charting. I always believed those squiggles, squirms and intersecting lines plotted carefully on graph paper were some kind of hocus-pocus necromancy involving the black arts and bone casting. So I asked a technical analyst who is a member of Mensa and assiduously lives by a multiplex of intersecting graphs and inverted diagrams for help. She dusted off her old Ouija board inlaid with ivory and gold and carved from snakewood. The following is her email to me: Beware, the technical condition of HEES is weak. The underlying indicators are negative, and a reversal of the existing trend seems neutral at this time. The stock has underperformed the market when compared with the S&P 500 over the past 50 trading days. The MACD-LT is con“rming that the intermediate trend is bearish. Over the past 50 trading sessions, there has been more volume on the downside than volume on up days, indicating that HEES is under distribution, which is a bearish condition. The stock is trading below a falling 50-day moving average, which con“rms the weak technical condition of HEES. The stock is trading below its 200-day moving average, which is also bearish.Ž In case youre wondering, MACD stands for moving average convergence/divergence.Ž And LT stands for Larsen & Toubro, a free online platform for market analysis. This is a sellŽ recommendation, so you probably should take your short-term loss on HEES and be done with it. Then use your proceeds, plus some extra cash, and buy Caterpillar (CAT-$146), which is down from its high of $173 in February. CAT (The Big Yellow MachineŽ) is the worlds largest manufacturer of earthmoving equipment, mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines, and diesel-electric locomotives. So if God put a mountain or a lake in your way, call CAT. For 90 years, CATs equipment has been making sustainable world progress possible and driving positive changes on every continent. This solid rock and roll company, with 580 million shares outstanding, turned a pro“t of $3.44 a share in 2016 on $38 billion in revenues while enjoying a net pro“t margin of 5.2 percent. In 2017, management got closer to heaven, posting $6.88 in per-share earnings with $45 billion in revenues and a 70 percent increase in its net pro“t margin. This year, CATs management must have found the stairway to heaven „ because CATs management expects to report earnings of $10.75 a share on revenues of $52 billion, made possible by a net pro“t margin of 12.3 percent. Wow and a big double wow, those are mighty impressive numbers. A major analyst from a huge brokerage whom Ive known since he kicked his cocaine habit says, In 2019, CAT could earn $11.30 on revenues of $54 billion!Ž CAT, whose $3.44 dividend has been raised for 25 consecutive years, yields 2.3 percent and could be a $200 stock in a couple of years. Email Malcolm Berko at mjberko@yahoo.com.The movers of Earth, big yellow machines MalcolmBERKOCBy FOSTER KLUGASSOCIATED PRESSUNITED NATIONS „ Calling for more trust, North Koreas foreign minister urged the United States on Saturday to keep moving past what he called seven decades of entrenched hostility if Washington wants to restart stalled negotiations meant to rid Pyongyang of its nuclear bombs. Boiling the rivals diplomatic standoff down to the Norths deepening feeling of mistrust, Ri Yong Ho sought to lay out a vision of peace on the troubled Korean Peninsula „ provided the North gets what it wants from the United States. Ri, standing at a podium at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, said North Korea is ready to implement the points that his leader, Kim Jong Un, and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to in June during a summit in Singapore. But his comments were infused with what came across as impatience at the slow pace of progress in a process the world hopes will cause Pyongyang to abandon an arsenal of nuclear-tipped missiles that aims to accurately target the entire U.S. mainland. In recent weeks, Kim Jong Un has said he would permanently dismantle North Koreas main nuclear complex, but only if the United States takes unspeci“ed corresponding measures. Kim has also promised to accept international inspectors to monitor the closing of a key missile test site and launch pad. The North, however, doesnt see any corresponding responseŽ from Washington. On the contrary, Ri said, the United States is increasing pressure and sanctions. The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant of us,Ž Ri said, adding that the continued sanctions are deepening our mistrustŽ and deadlocking the current diplomacy. Without any trust in the U.S., there will be no con“dence in our national security,Ž he said, and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves “rst.Ž There was no immediate response from Washington. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last week he would return to Pyongyang to set up a sequel to the Singapore meeting between Kim and Trump. Despite the muscular tone, Ris high-pro“le speech was downright mild and balanced compared to the ”orid vows of nuclear strikes and claims of U.S. per“diousness that have been typical fare from the countrys propaganda services. This was decidedly so during an exchange of threats between Washington and Pyongyang that accompanied a run of increasingly powerful weapons tests last year that put the North on the brink of its claim to be a full-”edged nuclear power, and had some fearing war. The tenor of Ris comments was clearly meant to push a wary United States to agree to a declaration formally ending the Korean War, which ended with a cease“re, not a peace treaty. Washington is wary of endorsing such a declaration, which could lead to a formal peace treaty. Pyongyang demands the removal of the 28,500 U.S. troops stationed in the South to deter North Korean military adventurism. The United States wants the North to “rst provide a full account of the components of its nuclear program. Although not legally binding, the North might also see an endof-war declaration as a way to create political momentum that would steer discussions toward diplomatic recognition, economic bene“ts and security concessions. Once the Singapore agreements are implemented, the current trend toward detente will turn into durable peace and the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will also be achieved,Ž Ri said. The Korean Peninsula, the hottest spot in the globe, will become the cradle of peace and prosperity.Ž After their summit in Singapore, Trump and Kim issued a vague statement about a nuclear-free peninsula without describing when and how it would occur. Post-summit nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang were rocky and quickly settled into a stalemate. There is widespread skepticism that Pyongyang is serious about renouncing an arsenal that it likely sees as the only way to guarantee its safety. Part of that skepticism is based on a bitter history of nuclear negotiations breaking down in mutual recrimination. But theres also stronger evidence for this wariness: Recent satellite photos have indicated Kims weapons factories were still operating to produce “ssile materials to make nuclear weapons.N. Korea FM: Peace possible, but only if US ends hostility By JOHN ANTCZAKASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES „ A 13-year-old boy diving for lobsters was attacked by a shark on the Southern California coast early Saturday but was quickly pulled from the water by others and ”own to a trauma center, authorities said. The boy suffered traumatic upper torso injuries, but the attack was nonfatal,Ž city Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles told reporters at Beacons Beach in Encinitas, about 27 miles north of downtown San Diego. The attack occurred just before 7 a.m., during the opening hour of Californias popular spiny lobster season. The boy was attacked in about 9 feet of water approximately 150 yards offshore. He was brought to shore by three bystanders, Giles said. Emergency responders arrived, and the boy was ”own by helicopter to a trauma center. He was conscious, he was above water, and the bystanders were able to get him up on the beach ... and he was talking all the way to when he was being transported,Ž the captain said. The three rescuers were identi“ed only as an off-duty police of“cer from nearby Oceanside, an off-duty state lifeguard and a friend who were also diving for lobsters. Giles said the trio provided a tremendous amount of aid to that young man.Ž Witnesses estimated the shark was about 11 feet long, but the type was not known, he said. Lifeguards immediately turned to clearing people out of the water. Giles noted there were multiple other divers in the area. The waters off about 4 miles of beach were ordered closed for 48 hours, and a nearby sur“ng competition was canceled before it got underway. Spokesman Carlos Delgado of Rady Childrens Hospital-San Diego said the boys is in critical but stable condition late Saturday afternoon, more than nine hours after the attack. The boy underwent surgery but no other information, including his name, was released.Teen attacked by shark at California beach By THOMAS GRANINGASSOCIATED PRESSBROOKHAVEN, Miss. „ Two police of“cers were shot and killed following an early Saturday morning confrontation in Mississippi, authorities said.

The water smashed into buildings and the mosque. Nina, a 23-year-old woman who goes by one name, was working at a laundry service shop not far from the beach when the quake hit. She said the quake destroyed her workplace, but she managed to escape and quickly went home to get her mother and younger brother. We tried to “nd shelter, but then I heard people shouting, Water! Water!Ž she recalled, crying. The three of us ran, but got separated. Now I dont know where my mother and brother are. I dont know how to get information. I dont know what to do.Ž The earthquake left mangled buildings with collapsed awnings and rebar sticking out of concrete like antennae. Roads were buckled and cracked. The tsunami created even more destruction. It was reported as being 3 meters (10 feet) high in some areas and double that height elsewhere. We got a report over the phone saying that there was a guy who climbed a tree up to 6 meters high,Ž said Nugroho, the disaster agency spokesman. Communications with the area were dif“cult because power and telecommunications were cut, hampering search and rescue efforts. Most people slept outdoors, fearing strong aftershocks. We hope there will be international satellites crossing over Indonesia that can capture images and provide them to us so we can use the images to prepare humanitarian aid,Ž Nugroho said. Indonesia is a vast archipelago of more than 17,000 islands thats home to 260 million people. Roads and infrastructure are poor in many areas, making access dif“cult in the best of conditions. The disaster agency has said that essential aircraft can land at Palus airport, though AirNav, which oversees aircraft navigation, said the runway was cracked and the control tower damaged. AirNav said one of its air traf“c controllers, aged 21, died in the quake after staying in the tower to ensure a ”ight hed just cleared for departure got airborne safely. It did. More than half of the 560 inmates in a Palu prison ”ed after its walls collapsed during the quake, said its warden, Adhi Yan Ricoh. It was very hard for the security guards to stop the inmates from running away as they were so panicked and had to save themselves too,Ž he told state news agency Antara. Ricoh said there was no immediate plan to search for the inmates because the prison staff and police were consumed with the search and rescue effort. Dont even think to “nd the inmates. We dont even have time yet to report this incident to our superiors,Ž he said. Indonesian President Joko JokowiŽ Widodo said Friday night that he instructed the security minister to coordinate the governments response to the disaster.

He was viewed as a possible noŽ vote on the panel and in the closelydivided Senate „ until his morning announcement Friday. That made the two women staking out his of“ce angry, and they confronted him when he tried to leave for Fridays hearing. I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me. I didnt tell anyone, and youre telling all women that they dont matter, that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them you are going to ignore them,Ž Gallagher said. Thats what happened to me, and thats what you are telling all women in America, that they dont matter,Ž she said through tears. She begged Flake to look her in the eye. Dont look away from me,Ž she said. Flake, cornered in the elevator, shifted between looking at them and looking down. He said, Thank you,Ž but didnt response to questions on whether he believed Fords testimony. Later in the day, Flake voted to advance Kavanaughs nomination from the committee to the full Senate, but only after announcing his condition. He said he had been speaking with Democrats to make sure we do due diligence here.Ž Flake was later asked whether the elevator confrontation swayed him. I can say this whole process has affected all of us,Ž he said. I cant pinpoint anything to say this is what caused me to come today to say lets postpone.Ž He said it was remarkableŽ the number of people who saw Ford and were emboldened to come out and say what had happened to them. Ive heard from close friends and I had no idea. Thats important.Ž President Donald Trump later agreed to order the FBI to open a supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh that would be completed in a week. The women do not identify themselves in the video, but Archilas group sent a press release following the confrontation con“rming it was Archila speaking on camera. Gallagher con“rmed via phone to The Associated Press that it was her, and she consented to the use of her name. The AP does not usually name people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly about the allegations, as these women have done. Speaking to the AP by phone after the confrontation, Gallagher said she didnt intend to tell Flake about her assault „ she had never told anyone before. But I saw him, and I got really angry,Ž she said. She was in town as a volunteer with the liberal activist group Make the Road New York. Archila told the AP she was sexually assaulted when she was 5 years old by a teenager when she and her family lived in Colombia. She said she didnt tell anyone before this week. I had planned to just talk to him nicely, but once when I saw that he was voting for Kavanaugh my niceties went out the window,Ž she said. What are you doing to our country? You are sending the wrong message youre saying that all of us who put our pain to the world to confront dont matter.Ž After hearing about Flakes request, she said the sequence of events suggested their conversation helped move him. What it tells me is that telling our stories and showing up can actually change their minds,Ž she said.FLAKEFROM PAGE 1TSUNAMIFROM PAGE 1 By MICHAEL BALSAMOASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ The FBI has contacted Deborah Ramirez, whos accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when he was a Yale student, as part of the bureaus investigation of the Supreme Court nominee, her attorney said Saturday. Ramirezs lawyer, John Clune, said agents want to interview her and she has agreed to cooperate. Ramirez has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were Yale students. President Donald Trump ordered the FBI on Friday to reopen Kavanaughs background investigation after several women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. Senate leaders agreed to delay a “nal vote on Kavanaughs nomination to allow for a one-week FBI investigation. The Senate Judiciary Committee has said the probe should be limited to current credible allegationsŽ against Kavanaugh and be “nished by next Friday. Leaving the hearing Friday, Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, said it was his understanding there would be an FBI investigation of the outstanding allegations, the three of them,Ž but Republicans have not said whether that was their understanding as well. While the precise scope of the investigation remained unclear, Trump told reporters Saturday that the FBI, as you know, is all over talking to everybodyŽ and said this could be a blessing in disguise.Ž They have free rein. Theyre going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do. Theyll be doing things that we have never even thought of,Ž he said. And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be “ne.Ž The FBI conducts background checks for federal nominees, but the agency does not make judgments on the credibility or signi“cance of allegations. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaughs past and provide their “ndings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaughs background “le, which is available to senators. Kavanaugh and another of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, testi“ed publicly before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Kavanaughs high school friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said that he will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that will con“dentially investigateŽ sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh. Judge has also denied Fords allegations. Lawyers for P.J. Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser, two others who Ford said were in the house when she was attacked, have said their clients are willing to cooperate fullyŽ with the FBIs investigation. A third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations. Kavanaugh has called her accusations a jokeŽ and Judge has said he categoricallyŽ denies the allegations. Swetnicks attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Saturday afternoon that his client had not been contacted by the FBI but is willing to fully cooperate with investigators. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee from Rhode Island, said he expects the FBI would provide adequate staf“ng for the investigation, with teams working in parallel to investigate separate allegations. Agents should get support from the Judiciary Committee for rapid immunity and subpoena decisions, he said. Last week, Trump tweeted that if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately “ledŽ with local police. On Thursday night, he attacked Democrats, saying they have a search and destroy strategyŽ and said this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct and resist.Ž After Ford appeared before the Judiciary Committee, Trump said her testimony was very compellingŽ and that she appeared to be certainly a very credible witness.Ž In the last week, Trump has spoken repeatedly with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has scolded Trump about comments that appeared to cast doubt on Fords claim, according to two Republicans familiar with the discussions but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. McConnell urged Trump to support Kavanaugh but to avoid attacking his accusers, warning that he was in charge of counting votes and those kinds of disparaging remarks could cause him to lose Republican senators whose votes could be key to con“rming Kavanaugh, including Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, they said.The FBI has contacted Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of misconduct as a Yale student POOL IMAGE VIA APSupreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testi“es during the Senate Judiciary Committee, Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Today I offer scores of products, with names such as Skin-So-Soft and Advance Techniques, and my sales force of independent representatives numbers around 6 million. I can boast of 90 percent brand recognition in most major markets worldwide. In 2016, I spun off my business in the U.S. and Canada into a new, privately held entity that added the word NewŽ to my long-standing name. I sell housewares and jewelry, but beauty products are my bread and butter. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. altering a will, and they can help you postpone or avoid some taxes. Assets that pass through trusts generally dont go through probate, so they can help you avoid unnecessary delay and expense, and can keep your arrangements more private. There are downsides to trusts, though. For starters, theyre often more complicated to create than a will. (A poorly drafted trust can be nearly impossible to execute.) Many professionals charge much more to draft a trust than a will, though it can still be worth the money. There are revocable and irrevocable trusts, and living and testamentary trusts (the last are linked with wills). Clearly, one can get confused quickly in the world of trusts. Its also not always easy to determine when establishing a trust is your best move. Read up on the topic before deciding, and consider consulting a professional or two. You can learn more in The Wall Street Journal Complete EstatePlanning GuidebookŽ by Rachel Emma Silverman (Crown Business, $16) and American Bar Association Guide to Wills and EstatesŽ (Random House Reference, $18).The Motley Fool TakeTake This Stock for a SpinFew great dividend-paying stocks look more attractive than appliance titan Whirlpool (NYSE: WHR). The company is going through some tough times at the moment. In particular, the trade war building between the United States and other markets, such as China, has pushed up the companys steel and aluminum costs, which in turn have caused it to raise its prices in the United States. This is Whirlpools most lucrative market, and higher costs and weaker sales from consumer sticker shock have hurt its sales and profitability. But Whirlpool has been down this road many times before. After all, it is a cyclical company. Its management understands how to keep costs in check and shift its focus to higher-growth regions. In recent years, the company has been buying its way into Asia, which offers a double-digit annual growth opportunity. While sticker shock in the U.S. is a genuine concern, it tends to last for only a few quarters. Historically, the U.S. economy has expanded in 86 percent of the months since the end of World War II, and that bodes well for a brandname appliance maker. Fundamentally, dipping your toes in the water appears to make a lot of sense. With a forward-looking priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio recently of just 7.6, Whirlpool is as cheap as its been in a decade. It also offers a dividend recently yielding 3.7 percent. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentAvoid MarginThe dumbest investment that Ive been avoiding has been investing on margin. Thats because Ive learned lessons about it from other peoples experiences. For example, buying stocks on margin (that is, with money borrowed from a brokerage) leverages both your gains and losses. Also, you dont necessarily get to choose the bail-out point on a margin investment. If the stock falls and your equity drops below the minimum allowed percentage, a margin callŽ will be triggered and your broker may sell some or all of your shares to bring you back to an allowed degree of leverage. So even if the stock bounces back, it may bounce back without you because of that margin call. I have very rarely received investing advice from my parents, who grew up in the Depression, but two things theyve said are: We know youre working to pay off debt, but you arent missing out on any 401(k) matching money, are you?Ž and For goodness sake, dont buy anything on margin.Ž They saw people in the 1930s lose their homes because of margin calls. „ T.B., online The Fool Responds: Youre smart to steer clear of using margin. As you noted, borrowing money with which to buy more stock can amplify your gains, but it will also amplify any losses „ while you pay interest charges. You dont need to use margin to make good money in stock investing. Military BreaksQDo military people get any tax breaks? „ D.L., Keene, New HampshireAThey do. For starters, some can exclude combat pay and other allowances and payments from taxable income, while combat pay can count as earned income for the Earned Income Tax Credit. Some reservists travel expenses are deductible, as are some moving expenses for activeduty personnel moving to a new permanent station. Families of fallen soldiers can take advantage of tax-favored accounts, and there is tax forgiveness for those who die in action, while in active service in a combat zone, or from an injury received in a combat zone. Those serving in a combat zone and certain others can also have their tax deadlines automatically extended by 180 days. IRS Publication 3, Armed Forces Tax Guide,Ž will tell you much more.The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act offers some protections against eviction, the delay of civil court actions, a cap on mortgage rates, and reduced interest rates on credit card debt. Learn more at defense.gov irs.gov and Fool.com/taxes .***QAre initial public offerings (IPOs) good investments? „ N.O., Dalton, GeorgiaAThey can be, but its generally best to steer clear of newly minted shares of stock until theyve had a chance to settle down.IPOs can be volatile and frequently dont fare too well in their first year. And its mainly well-connected investors who get shares at their low initial prices; the rest of us end up buying later, often after prices have risen considerably.Facebook, for example, debuted on the market in 2012. Shares were initially priced at $38 apiece, but after about a month they were near $30 and a year later near $26. (Of course, they were recently near $167.)Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolA Matter of TrustsIf you hold meaningful assets, its important to have some kind of estate plan in place, formalizing your final wishes „ even if youre still relatively young. Trusts can help with that. While trusts are commonly used by the wealthy, they can serve the middle class well, too. A trust involves assets being held by one or more trustees for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries, and it can be specific about when the assets go to the beneficiaries. (For example, it might be upon your death, or when an heir turns, say, 35.) Trusts can be used for many purposes, such as dividing ownership of property. They can be preferable to wills sometimes, too. Thats because they can take effect immediately, handling circumstances that wills cannot. For instance, if youre seriously injured, a trustee may take over your finances until youre able to assume responsibility again. Trusts can usually be changed without the formalities required for 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The drawback is hes a workaholic. We have not spent even one day together doing something fun in more than 10 years. We both work full-time and live on a small farm. My husband is a carpenter. He collects tractors and works hay elds all summer long. Because he comes in late each evening, I often eat dinner alone. On weekends, hes working on his tractors or cutting and baling hay. I do see him a bit more during the winter months, but he thinks its a waste of time and money to go somewhere nice for dinner or take a weekend getaway. When I do travel, it is with my siblings because my husband prefers to stay home and work. I love him, but Im beginning to feel like I am not his top priority. I am lonely for his companionship. I just dont know how to handle this. Hes pretty set in his ways. Help. „ WITHERING IN WISCONSIN DEAR WITHERING: A husband who is unwilling to devote time to his wife doesnt sound wonderfulŽ to me. Perhaps you should consider having a snack after you return from work, so you can have dinner with him when he comes in. You appear to have a communication problem. Tell him what you want, and dont be shy about it. Say you love him but need more of him than he has given you for a long time. He needs to know his wife feels shes playing second ddle to his tractor collection. If he is unwilling to listen, then you will have to evaluate whether you want to spend the rest of your life withering.Ž DEAR ABBY: I am married to a successful mental health professional, and I applaud how you recommend therapy or counseling when it is called for. I have noticed that some of your readers have written, I tried it already, but it didnt work.Ž To these people, my husband always says: Therapists are like shoes. Sometimes you need to try on a few before you nd a good t. And, like shoes, you can grow out of them and need new ones. Sometimes you need a more appropriate pair that matches a dierent lifestyle. (You wouldnt go running in high heels, or wear ip-ops to business meetings.) Ask to TALK to potential therapists before hiring one. Ask questions. Get a feel for their personality and style. Ask how they might treat different issues and what types of therapy they practice, and inquire about sliding-scale fees if money is an issue.

Then, on the weekend they should clear everything out of the backpacks. For a thorough cleaning, turn the backpack upside down and remove all of the debris. It can be scrubbed with a dry brush. Wipe the entire backpack with a sponge thats been dampened with a mild liquid dish detergent. Use a lightly wet sponge to wipe o everything, then let it air-dry.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 planted dozens of colorful ”owers around the garden. Some people later took videos of their walks around the garden. A pair left red roses next to photos of some of the victims, while a man brought his guitar and played soothing notes. Many survivors of the shooting are in Las Vegas this weekend for a large private reunion and other planned events ahead of the one-year anniversary Monday. Throughout the year, some friends and relatives have decorated the tree of their loved one. A laminated photo of Arizona Diamondbacks players honoring Christiana Duarte is tied to one tree, while another one has decorated river stones for Hannah Ahlers. Cervantes previously left a T-shirt and ”owers. A museum is storing the original wall and mementos left at the garden that can be damaged by weather, while volunteers at another museum have catalogued more than 15,000 items left at makeshift memorials last October. A small sample of those thousands of items „ including cowboy boots, hats, stuffed animals and candles „ recently went on display. A committee chaired by Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval will work to design, fund and build a permanent memorial. If history holds, it will be years before it is completed. Almost a decade went by before a memorial for the victims of the Columbine High School massacre was “nished, while a committee just last month agreed on a design for the memorial for Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims. The practice of honoring the dead with makeshift memorials and roadside shrines is not new, but storing the items left behind is. Ashley Maynor, who has researched community responses to tragedies, said both are ways of processing grief. After a tragedy of this magnitude that reveals something so disturbing about human character, people want to do something to reaf“rm their humanity, to reaf“rm goodness in the world and to feel like they have some agency in the face of something incomprehensible,Ž said Maynor, a digital scholarship librarian at New York University. The need to do something is what drove Jay Pleggenkuhle and his business partner to sketch the garden on a napkin and ask the city for the space for a pop-up park. Businesses and individuals immediately stepped up to help, and a year later, they continue to do so. Cervantes „ whose son was her right hand and loved Halloween and burritos „ will return to the garden Oct. 1, when the name of every victim will be read during a ceremony. A lot of the family members have come back and spent time at the garden,Ž Pleggenkuhle said. One victim in particular „ her parents live in Redding, California, and every time they come to Las Vegas, they come to the garden. Instead of being angry and bitter with Las Vegas and for what happened to their daughter here, they are looking at how this community came together to create something beautiful to honor her life.Ž AP PHOTOSIn this Friday photo, a worker installs signs with victims names at a memorial garden of the Oct. 1, 2017, mass shooting in Las Vegas. In this Sept. 19, photo, volunteers at the Clark County Museum in Henderson, Nev., catalogue and photograph items left behind from makeshift memorials for victims.MOURNFROM PAGE 1 By LISA MARIE PANEASSOCIATED PRESSThe gunman in the Las Vegas mass shooting was armed with 23 AR-style weapons, 14 of them “tted with bump stocksŽ that allowed them to mimic fully automatic “re. The devices were little-known before they were used in the Oct. 1 rampage, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. And in the immediate aftermath, there were calls from a wide spectrum of lawmakers and advocates on “rearms issues to have them banned. Heres what has happened with the devices since the attack that left 58 dead:LEGISLATIVE ACTIONIn the shootings immediate aftermath, there appeared to be a growing desire to ban the sale and possession of bump stocks, which federal authorities previously deemed legal and not subject to the same tighter restrictions reserved for fully automatic “rearms. Most notably, President Donald Trump vowed to ban the devices, which attach to the stock end of an AR-style “rearm, greatly increasing the rate of “re so it mimics a fully automatic long gun. Trump in March tweeted: Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period.Ž The government determined in 2010 that bump stocks couldnt be regulated unless Congress changed the law. But as with many restrictions on “rearms in recent years, more action has taken place at the state level than by the federal government. Ten states and three cities have enacted bans on the devices. California made bump stock-style devices illegal there decades ago.WHAT HAS HAPPENED AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL?Trump expressed support for banning the devices and directed the Justice Department to rewrite the federal regulations. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this spring sought public comment on a proposal to reclassify bump stocks, but no action has been taken. The proposed rules drew more than 35,000 comments.THE COMPANYSlide Fire Solutions, Americas largest bump stock manufacturer, closed its website in June and stopped taking orders. However, its remaining stock of the devices is now being sold by another company, RW Arms, based in Fort Worth, Texas. The devices were originally intended to help people with disabilities and were little-known until the Las Vegas shooting. Gun owners and enthusiasts frequently call bump stocks a novelty item. Gun dealers said very few of the devices were sold before the Las Vegas shooting, but demand soared afterward amid concern they might be banned.Whats happened with bump stocks since the Las Vegas attack?

The Seminoles (3-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 21-7 at halftime, but the game-winning drive was set up when A.J Westbrook intercepted Jawon Pass at the Florida State 19 with 1:56 to go. We needed this win to continue the progress that were trying to do with our football program,Ž “rstyear Seminoles coach Willie Taggart said. This was huge for our team.Ž Francois completed 16-of-27 passes for 294 yards.

He went 6-of-7 for 57 yards on an 11-play, 70-yard drive late in the “rst half that culminated with a 3-yard pass to Dez Fitzpatrick to make it 21-7 Cardinals (2-3, 0-2) with :10 left in the half. However, he also threw two interceptions. The “rst was the one Westbrooks picked. It stopped a four-minute drive that saw the Cardinals move the ball 50 yards and occurred in the red zone. Taggart told his team that they were probably going to have to strip the ball away to force a turnover, as neither he nor Westbrook said they expected a pass. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino took responsibility for the play calling. I look back at it, obviously, I should have ran the ball,Ž a somber Petrino said in the postgame press conference. I did know what they were in, and I was expecting him to throw the hitch into the “eld. Its my job to make sure were on the same page. I didnt get that done.ŽBy JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERNorth Port girls cross country runner Alexis Smith battled a hip injury her freshman year, but came back for a strong sophomore season. Now a junior, Smith is leading the Lady Bobcats on a surge in the second half of the season. Shes had a really good season,Ž Lady Bobcats coach Jen Reed said. The “rst part of the season I didnt see much of a difference in times, but these past two weeks were starting to see these times decrease.Ž Part of the reason for the down numbers at points is due to the busy life that Smith currently lives. Practicing trumpet with the marching band and conditioning for soccer season also take up a large chunk of her time after school these days. The workload causes her to switch up her training as she tries to squeeze it all in. I havent been able to train as much, but as Ive been continuing my different training methods „ sometimes Ill run with the boys and sometimes Ill be doing a soccer workout „ my training has varied,Ž Smith said. But Ive been cutting down my time toward my PR. Its just been all over the place.Ž Smith “nished third overall in the large school division of the North Port Invite last weekend out of 95 total runners. Shes helped lead her team that “nished fourth overall at the meet. Also scoring for the Lady Bobcats were Hailey Doyle (24:13.5), Mackenzie Doyle (24:21.8), Tatiana Wilburn (24:21.9), Katarina Wilburn (25:19.3). Were making progress,Ž Reed said. We have a lot of new runners. At least half the team is new to cross country. But thats the best race that theyve had all season so Im encouraged with counties coming up.Ž Theres no real strategy when the Lady Bobcats get to a meet. Some runners like to stay together while others do their own thing. Overall, the teams numbers are fairly similar which helps them keep a solid pace throughout.By FRED GOODALLAP SPORTS WRITERORLANDO, Fla. (AP) „ McKenzie Milton threw for 328 yards and four touchdowns and No. 13 UCF extended the nations longest winning streak to 17 games with a 45-14 rout of Pittsburgh on Saturday. A week after accounting for six TDs in a lopsided victory over Florida Atlantic, Milton also ran for two scores to give the junior from Kapolei, Hawaii, seven TDs passing and five rushing in his past two games. UCF (4-0) now moves into the heart of its American Athletic Conference schedule, hoping to go undefeated for the second straight year to play its way into consideration for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Pitt (2-3) has had a knack for stunning teams with national title aspirations in recent seasons, however the Panthers were no match for a Milton-led offense thats scored at least 30 points in every game during its schooland AAC-record winning streak. Running back Adrian Killins, Jr., scored on a 71-yard reception, and Milton tossed TD passes of 24 yards to Gabriel Davis, 2 yards to Michael Colubiale and 13 yards to Otis Anderson. Pitt surprised eventual national champion Clemson on the road two years ago. The Panthers ended a disappointing 2017 season by defeating unbeaten Miami, which at the time had the longest winning streak in the country and was in contention for a CFP By DAVID BRANDTAP SPORTS WRITERSTARKVILLE, Miss. „ Feleipe Franks threw for 219 yards and Floridas defense dominated in the Gators 13-6 victory over No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday night. Coach Dan Mullen won in his return to Starkville, guiding Florida to success in his “rst appearance at Davis Wade Stadium since leaving Mississippi State in November after nine mostly successful seasons. Florida wasnt great offensively, but it didnt matter. The Gators (4-1, 2-1) broke through in the third quarter when Franks threw a lateral to Kadarius Toney, who then threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Moral Stephens for a 10-6 lead. From that point forward, Florida slowly grinded toward the win. A 10-play, 36-yard drive in the fourth quarter led to a 21-yard “eld goal by Evan McPherson „ giving the Gators a 13-6 lead „ and the Mississippi State offense was never able to respond. Mississippi State (3-2, 0-2) had its chances to win and led 6-3 at halftime.

PETERSBURG, Fla. „ C.J. Cron and Austin Meadows homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 on Saturday night, though Blake Snell failed to win his 10th straight start. Snell gave up a run in the “rst inning and left after “ve with the score tied at 1. He gave up three hits and four walks (three in the “rst inning) and struck out 10. He was trying to become the “rst pitcher to win 10 straight starts within a season since Justin Verlander with Detroit in 2011. Diego Castillo (4-2) got the win with two innings of relief. Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 25th save despite giving up a pinch-hit homer to Reese McGuire. Snell, whose last loss came on July 12, “nished with a 21-5 record and a 1.89 ERA. In 14 starts at home, Snell never gave up more than two runs and “nished with an ERA of 1.27. Crons 30th homer got the Tampa Bay on the board in the second against Toronto starter Ryan Borucki (4-6), and Meadows put the Rays ahead for the “rst time with another homer off Borucki in the seventh. It was the sixth homer of the season and the “rst as a Ray for Meadows, who was acquired along with pitcher Tyler Glasnow in the July 31 trade that sent pitcher Chris Archer to Pittsburgh. Jon Berti led off the game with an in“eld single, stole second and scored the run off Snell on Rowdy Tellezs sacri“ce ”y. With Snell out of the game, Teoscar Hernandez hit his 22nd home run off reliever Castillo to put the Blue Jays up 2-1. Tommy Pham led off the Tampa Bay sixth with a single, extending to 31 his streak of games in which he has reached base safely, the longest active streak in the majors. He scored on Brandon Lowes two-out single, tying it at 2 in the sixth. Borucki gave up four runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. The Blue Jays struck out 18 times.UP NEXTRHP Sam Gaviglio (3-9) will make his 24th start for the Blue Jays, his fourth against the Rays, in Sundays season finale. The Rays will finish with a bullpen day,Ž starting with RHP Ryne Stanek (2-3) or RHP Diego Castillo (3-2).By JENNA FRYERAP AUTO RACING WRITERCONCORD, N.C. „ If there was just one race to watch the entire NASCAR season it would be the one on Charlottes new-fangled rovalŽ thing. NASCAR has claimed the best drivers in the worldŽ and they are on display Sunday on a bonus day on network NBC at the same time as the NFL. Come watch them try to conquer Charlotte Motor Speedway, a mystery track where seasons are on the line because four drivers will be bounced from the 16-driver playoff “eld. Add in a desperate free-agent season in which a slew of veterans are hunting the very few available jobs. Times are tough in NASCAR and jobs are going to cheaper, younger drivers, so everyone needs a good race Sunday to show they are worthy of a seat. And so they get the roval, the brainchild of Marcus Smith and Speedway Motorsports Inc., and this track has vexed these drivers. Well done, scream the fans, energized because this roval is something new. We need to take more risks,Ž roared retired “ve-time champion Jeff Gordon, now a television analyst who has taken an active role in stopping NASCARs spiral. We need to step outside of that comfort zone and take more risks. Theres a potential for Sunday to be a big day.Ž Smith has gone outside the box because hes got a boring 1.5-mile speedway. The roval, good or bad, is his baby. Its already a success because fans are genuinely giddy about Sunday, in part because it could be a disaster for four playoff contenders. When practice is fun to watch, imagine how fun the race is going to be?Ž Smith said, somewhat earnestly about what is just one of many forward-thinking SMI projects. The hybrid 17-turn, 2.28mile course, which has a 35-foot change in elevation, uses a portion of Charlottes speedway along with a dip through an in“eld road course. It has indeed been entertaining to watch every session in which those best drivers in the worldŽ are put to the test around the roval. But its been miserable for many of the drivers. Start with Bubba Wallace, who wrecked when he was the “rst driver to hit the track in the “rst test over the summer. Well, hes had “ve more incidents this weekend alone. The iconic No. 43 was crumpled in a head-on crash into a tire barrier so bad it stopped Saturday practice so the barrier on the backstretch coming out of turn 12 could be repaired. Within moments, playoff contender Erik Jones destroyed his car and the barrier was again heavily damaged. NASCAR moved the angle of the barrier back roughly four feet before the “nal Cup practice, and Smith insisted hes open to whatever changes the drivers might need. The tires are there, Smith said, because the drivers asked for them as visual aids. If they need to be altered, let him know, he said. Well, everyone has an opinion, especially after theyve bounced all over this peculiar layout. The timing comes as four are trying to avoid playoff elimination, that includes seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, an eight-time winner on Charlottes old boring oval. Denny Hamlin and Jones, teammates of Kyle Busch of the Big 3,Ž are both in falling out and eliminating two of the Toyota entries from Joe Gibbs Racing. Hamlin and Jones, along with Wallace, of course, will both race in backups Sunday. As will Brad Keselowski, winner of three-straight in September in a Ford for Team Penske that made him a hot title contender. Keselowski crashed in the closing laps of Saturdays “nal practice. The roval at Charlotte is the big NASCAR race worth watchingBy DOUG FEINBERGAP BASKETBALL WRITERSAN CRISTOBAL DE LA LAGUNA, Spain „ Just as it has done for most of the tournament, the U.S. used a big third quarter keyed by Diana Taurarsi and Breanna Stewart to pull away from an opponent. This time, it was Belgium, whose one-point halftime de“cit turned into 16 by the end of the third period. Taurasi “nished with 26 points, including hitting “ve 3-pointers, to help the U.S. win 93-77 on Saturday in the semi“nals of the FIBA Womens Basketball World Cup. We got some stops, they are a really good team. Theyve been playing together for a long time, you can tell,Ž Taurasi said of the third quarter in which the U.S. outscored Belgium 3318. We got a couple more stops, we made a couple more plays on offense, wore them down a little bit.Ž Breanna Stewart added 20 points while Brittney Griner had 16 for the Americans, who will be going for a third straight gold medal at the worlds „ something the country has never done. Thats what were here for,Ž said Elena Delle Donne, who is on her “rst World Cup team. The U.S. has won 21 consecutive World Cup games and will play Australia for the title Sunday. The U.S. has won all 17 meetings between the teams, including a 10-0 mark in the World Cup. Belgium, making its “rst appearance in the World Cup, was led by Emma Meessemans 23 points. The Belgians already had surpassed their goal of reaching the quarter“nals. A bronze medal would be an excellent achievement. I dont know who is going to play us,Ž Meesseman said. I know were going to give all we have left.Ž Belgium hung around for 25 minutes thanks to Meesseman and solid outside shooting. The score was 52-52 midway through the third quarter before the U.S. closed the period with a 21-5 run. Griner, Stewart and Jewell Loyd keyed the spurt. Belgium came no closer than 14 the rest of the way. Meesseman got her team going early, scoring 13 points in the opening quarter as Belgium shot 56 percent to lead 26-21 after one quarter. The U.S. rallied behind Taurasi and Elena Delle Donne, who had seven points in the second quarter to give the Americans a 40-39 halftime lead.HELPER MARK Sue Bird is now one assist shy of matching Dawn Staleys career mark of 103 for USA Basketball at the World Cup. She had seven against Belgium to match her best-ever in the Worlds.MILESTONE REACHEDThe U.S. scored the 10,000th point in its World Cup history on the “rst basket of the game by Griner. No other team is close. If I ever go on jeopardy they will say Brittney Griner scored the 10,000th point,Ž she said laughing. Thats awesome. Thats a lot of scoring for the USA. TIPINS Taurasi was two points short of matching her World Cup high of 28 set against Brazil in 2006.SKIPPING WNBA SEASON Meesseman decided to train with the Belgium team all year instead of playing for the Washington Mystics in the WNBA this past season.

With our team, our times have been where we finish one after another after another sometimes even within seconds,Ž Smith said. It really helped us with this past meet because our girls were 18th, 19th, 20th place, that was really helpful. But as far as strategy, you just kind of run your own race and try to PR.Ž For Smith, who has learned tricks from her family which also runs, its all about the time. Using what she knows about other runners in the area, scouting sort of, she can set her pace around them. I know a lot of other runners that my times are basically around, so I try to stick with them and pass them if I can,Ž said Smith, who has been running since she was young. Over the years of running I have a basis of who I need to beat to go to regionals and things like that.Ž With a solid finish at the Lady Bobcats home meet, it makes her hectic training schedule worth it. It hasnt been ideal, but if her times keep improving she can keep doing all the activities she loves. Its put in perspective for me that even though Im not training as much, I still have that fight in me,Ž Smith said. I still am able to perform as best I can and come out in the top.Ž The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3SMITH SUN PHOTO BY MONICA AMAYALady Bobcats pose with the girls large school varsity third place trophy.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 30, 2018By NICK BAUMGARDERDETROIT FREE PRESS (TNS)EVANSTON, Ill. „ Michigan ”irted with a loss on the road. Again. But unlike the season opener at Notre Dame, this comeback was completed. Karan Higdons 5-yard touchdown run with 4:06 to play Saturday gave Michigan its “rst lead of the contest, and proved to be the winner as the Wolverines erased a 17-point de“cit to win 20-17 at Northwestern. The Wolverines (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) will return home to play Maryland next Saturday. On this day, Michigan “nished the game with 11 penalties for 100 yards. The Wolverines struggled with vanilla offense and sloppy defense throughout a nightmarish “rst half. Couldnt get much going through the air. Couldnt get much going on the ground. But found a way. Higdon “nished with 30 carries for 115 yards and two scores, and Patterson was 15-for-24 passing for 196 yards. He made numerous key plays on the ground, evading defenders and gaining 31 yards on seven carries. Michigans defense allowed 10 points and 105 yards in the “rst quarter, but kept the Wildcats in check the rest of the way, as Northwestern “nished with 202 yards of total offense. After a poor “rst half, Michigan found itself down 17-7 at halftime. A productive early third-quarter drive moved 69 yards in 11 plays, but Pattersons throw to an open Grant Perry in the end zone was long, resulting in a “eld goal. Michigan got another defensive stop, leading to another lengthy drive „ highlighted by a 24-yard throw from Patterson to Nick Eubanks. Pattersons attempt for Nico Collins on a slant in the end zone went high. Quinn Nordin added another “eld goal in the red zone, making it 17-13 Wildcats after three quarters. After another defensive stop, Michigan had a drive stopped on a controversial holding call on Higdon that wiped out a “rst-down scramble from Patterson. After a punt and another hold by the defense, Patterson methodically moved the ball down the “eld once more, zipping in a throw for 22 yards to tight end Zach Gentry to set up “rst-and-goal from the 6-yard line with “ve minutes to play. Higdon crashed in off right tackle from “ve yards out to give the Wolverines their “rst lead of the game, 20-17, with 4:06 to play. Northwestern had one “nal chance with four seconds left at its own 49, but Josh Uche sacked Clayton Thorson as time expired. Northwestern dominated the “rst half, taking the opening drive 56 yards for a touchdown, then adding a “eld goal with 3:58 left in the “rst quarter. The Wildcats then took a botched Michigan fourth-down play and turned it into a 52-yard touchdown drive, polished off by a 3-yard scoring run from John Moten IV, putting the Wolverines down 17-0.Michigan completes comeback for win over Northwestern By JOEDY McCREARYAP SPORTS WRITERDURHAM, N.C. „ Ryan Willis threw for 332 yards and a career-best three touchdowns in his “rst start at Virginia Tech, helping the Hokies upset No. 22 Duke 31-14 on Saturday night. Willis, a transfer from Kansas taking over for injured starter Josh Jackson, was 17 of 27 with a 27-yard TD pass to Damon Hazelton, a 67-yard catchand-run score to Dalton Keene and a game-sealing 10-yarder to Phil Patterson. Humiliated in a 14-point loss at Old Dominion last week, the Hokies (2-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back strong, leading virtually all night to earn another lopsided road victory against a ranked league opponent. They routed then-No. 19 Florida State 24-3 in the opener. Daniel Jones „ back in the starting lineup three weeks after breaking his collar bone „ was 23 of 35 for 226 yards with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Noah Gray and an interception for the Blue Devils (4-1, 0-1), and Deon Jackson had a short touchdown run that cut the de“cit to 24-14 early in the fourth quarter. Ranked for the “rst time since 2015, they were denied their “rst 5-0 start since 1994 and instead saw the end of a seven-game winning streak that dated to last season. Steven Peoples had a 6-yard touchdown run and Brian Johnson kicked a 28-yard “eld goal for the Hokies.THE TAKEAWAYVirginia Tech: These Hokies looked nothing like the crew that gave up seven touchdowns and 631 total yards „ the worst in a quarter-century with defensive coordinator Bud Foster „ at Old Dominion. This time, they held Duke to almost half of that (327). When they had the ball, Willis didnt look much like a backup „ instead teaming with his receivers to make Dukes young secondary look, well, young. Duke: The Blue Devils wont like these parallels, easy as they are to draw. For the second straight year, a 4-0 start was wiped out by a no-show loss at home in the league opener against a high-pro“le Coastal Division opponent; Miami had that honor in 2017, routing Duke 31-6 a year to the day before this one. Now the challenge is to prevent a repeat of what followed that one: A sixgame losing streak that put bowl eligibility in peril.UP NEXTVirginia Tech: Plays host to No. 8 Notre Dame next Saturday.

Playing behind a shuf”ed offensive line, Stidham completed 19 of 33 attempts, including touchdowns of 46 yards to Seth Williams and 2 yards to Chandler Cox, while enduring four sacks. The Tigers (4-1) had built a 14-3 lead in the “rst half before the game was delayed for two hours, 44 minutes at the 4:27 mark of the second quarter as lightning forced players and fans to take shelter. Williams “nished with two receptions for 60 yards, including the freshmans “rst career score. Darius Slayton led Auburn with “ve catches for 91 yards. Stidham was forced to work behind a shuf”ing offensive line. Freshman Nick Brahms made his second straight start at center only to be replaced by Kaleb Kim, who started the teams “rst three games. Both of Auburns starting tackles were also helped to the locker room in the second half. Left tackle Prince Tega Wanogho was replaced by junior Bailey Sharp, and right tackle Jack Driscoll by freshman Calvin Ashley. The Tigers ground game produced just 96 yards as Auburn failed to break the 100-yard mark in back-to-back games for the “rst time since 2012. JaTarvious Whitlow left the game with a shoulder injury before the delay and returned without pads. Junior Kam Martin led the Tigers with 90 yards on 24 carries. Entering the game as the No. 8 passing offense in the nation, Southern Miss (2-2) relied heavily on sophomore quarterback Jack Abraham, who completed 30 of 44 passes for 215 yards, a score and two interceptions. Auburn limited the Golden Eagles to 45 yards on the ground.UP NEXTAuburn is at No. 23 Mississippi State next Saturday. Southern Miss is at North Texas on Oct. 13.

By GARY B. GRAVESAP SPORTS WRITERLEXINGTON, Ky. „ Benny Snell Jr. ran for 99 yards and one of Kentuckys three consecutive “rst-half touchdowns before the No. 17 Wildcats held on for a 24-10 victory over South Carolina on Saturday night. Kentucky (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) quashed initial concerns about a letdown following their “rst Top 25 ranking since November 2007 by scoring on four straight drives to lead 24-3 at halftime. The Wildcats ended up needing that cushion to offset a scoreless second half and Jake Bentleys 58-yard, third quarter TD pass that kept the Gamecocks (2-2, 1-2) within striking distance. Mike Edwards interception with 3:47 remaining snuffed one chance by the Gamecocks before they turned the ball over on downs in the “nal minute. That sealed Kentuckys “fth consecutive series win and continued its best SEC start since 1977. Snells rushing yardage on 28 carries also made him the third Wildcat to break 3,000 career. His 4-yard score with 4:53 remaining in the second quarter extended his TD record to 40. Quarterback Terry Wilson and A.J. Rose ran for TDs from 1 and 24 yards as Kentucky edged South Carolina 327-321 in yardage. The Wildcats also registered four takeaways, scoring 10 points off a fumble and interception.POLL IMPLICATIONSKentuckys “rst Top 25 presence in 11 years will last another week.THE TAKEAWAYSouth Carolina: The Gamecocks passing game cranked up after halftime and they were within two possessions midway in the fourth quarter. But catch-up through the air also resulted in costly interceptions by Bentley (13 of 28 passing, 148 yards), including one in the end zone. Kentucky: The Wildcats seemed headed toward a second consecutive SEC rout at the break by dominating the Gamecocks on both sides of the ball. A scoreless second half opened the door for South Carolina, but the defense came up with two timely turnovers to preserve the lead. That was enough to offset the TD that marked the first points theyve allowed in the third quarter this season. UP NEXTSouth Carolina hosts Missouri on Saturday to open a three-game homestand.

Milton was 18 of 34 passing with no interceptions. Kenny Pickett was 16 of 26 for 163 yards, one touchdown and one interception for Pitt, which was limited to 109 yards rushing.THE TAKEAWAYPitt: One of the ways the Panthers had hoped to slow Milton was with an effective running game that helped them kept the UCF quarterback off the field for long stretches. That never materialized. The Knights ran 47 plays to Pitts 28 in the opening half, outgaining the Panthers 316 yards to 114, including 119-36 rushing. UCF: While Pitt isnt one of the top teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Knights dominating performance nevertheless was impressive. Milton completed passes to six different receivers and easily would have passed for even more yardage is he had been as accurate as usual on deep throws.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Knights were unbeaten last season, but not invited to the CFP after winning the AAC. They climbed three spots in the Top 25 after beating FAU and didnt do anything Saturday to deter an upward trend.UP NEXTPitt : Home vs. Syracuse. UCF : AAC home opener against SMU.UCF CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) „ With new starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence knocked out of the game, Travis Etienne scored on a 2-yard run with 41 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to give No. 3 Clemson a 27-23 victory over Syracuse on Saturday. Etienne had three TDs and a career-high 203 yards rushing to bail out the quarterback-depleted Tigers (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). They went from having one too many starting-caliber QBs earlier in the week to not enough by the second half against the Orange (4-1, 1-1). Lawrence left his “rst career start late in the second quarter with a possible concussion. Lawrence was promoted to starter earlier in the week by coach Dabo Swinney and that prompted senior Kelly Bryant, who had started the “rst four games and led the Tigers to the College Football Playoff last year, to leave the team. That left one-time third-stringer Chase Brice to lead the comeback „ and it looked bleak when Syracuses Eric Dungey bulled his way in for a 1-yard score with 12:58 remaining to make it 23-13. Etiennes 26-yard touchdown run with 11:08 to go drew Clemson within a “eld goal and Brice, a redshirt freshman with just eight career passes, directed a 94-yard scoring drive that included a 20-yard completion on fourth-and-6 to keep things going. Dungey was sacked twice by freshman Xavier Thomas on Syracuses “nal drive. The Orange were trying for their “rst 5-0 start since 1987. Dungey “nished with two rushing touchdowns. He was 26 of 41 passing for 250 yards and an interception.No. 1 Alabama 56, LouisianaLafayette 14TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) „ Jaylen Waddle returned a punt for a touchdown and caught two scoring passes, including a 94-yarder, for Alabama. Quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts staked the Crimson Tide (5-0) to a 49-0 halftime lead over the Ragin Cajuns (1-3) en route to the defending national champions latest blowout. Then third-teamer Mac Jones got into the act with his 94-yarder to the freshman Waddle late in the third quarter. It tied for the second-longest TD catch in Alabama history. Alabama has scored at least 45 points “ve games in a row for the “rst time in program history. Tagovailoa completed all eight of his attempts for 128 yards and two touchdowns, mostly in the “rst quarter. Hurts was 4 of 6 for 118 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown to Henry Ruggs III. Ruggs caught “ve passes for 116 yards and two TDs. Waddle gained 138 yards on three catches and returned a punt 63 yards for a score.No. 2 Georgia 38, Tennessee 12ATHENS, Ga. (AP) „ DAndre Swift ran for two touchdowns, including a late 14-yarder, and Georgia used dominant defense to overcome a sluggish offensive start. Freshman quarterback Justin Fields scored on runs of 12 and 15 yards, and Isaac Nauta had a 31-yard fumble return for a scpore. The Bulldogs led by 12 points early in the “nal quarter before pulling away. Georgia (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) scored touchdowns on its last drive of the “rst half and opening possession after halftime but otherwise couldnt maintain momentum. Jake Fromm completed 16 of 22 passes for 185 yards while sharing time with Fields. Tennessee (2-3, 0-2) was held to 209 yards.No. 6 Oklahoma 66, Baylor 33NORMAN, Okla. (AP) „ Kyler Murray sat out Oklahomas “rst offensive series then came on to pass for 432 yards and six touchdowns. Austin Kendall opened the game, but Murray entered on the second possession and played nearly ”awless football. His passing touchdown total tied for second-best in school history behind Baker May“elds seven against Texas Tech in 2016. The school would not say why Murray didnt start. Murray also ran for 45 yards and a score for the Sooners (5-0, 2-0 Big 12). Marquise Brown caught “ve passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns, CeeDee Lamb had 101 yards receiving and Lee Morris caught two touchdown passes for the Sooners. Murray completed 10 of 11 passes for 192 yards and four touchdowns in the “rst half to help the Sooners take a 28-9 lead. Murray threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Brown later in the third quarter, then scored on a 1-yard run on an untimed down on the last play of the period to put the Sooners up 49-23. Charlie Brewer passed for 400 yards and two touchdowns, and Denzel Mims had 11 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown for Baylor (3-2, 1-1).No. 12 West Virginia 42, No. 25 Texas Tech 34LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) „ Will Grier threw for 370 yards and three touchdowns, Keith Washington thwarted a rally with 51-yard interception return for a score for West Virginia. Marcus Simms had nine catches for a career-high 138 yards „ all in the “rst half „ for his third straight 100-yard game. The Mountaineers (4-0, 2-0 Big 12) scored 28 “rst-quarter points. Texas Tech true freshman Alan Bowman, the nations leading passer coming in, didnt return after getting injured in the “rst half when he was sandwiched on hits by Ezekiel Rose and Washington as he threw a pass. Jett Dudley had his “rst career touchdown pass and TD run “lling in for Bowman as the Red Raiders (3-2, 1-1) stayed close after trailing 35-10 at halftime. With Texas Tech driving for a potential tying score late in the fourth quarter, Duffeys second interceptions was a leaping grab by Washington, who returned it for a 42-27 lead.No. 18 Texas 19, Kansas State 14MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) „ Sam Ehlinger threw for 207 yards and a touchdown, DShawn Jamison returned a punt 90 yards for another score and Texas snap a “vegame road losing streak to Kansas State. Keaontay Ingram churned for a “rst down with less than three minutes to go, allowing the red-hot Longhorns (4-1, 2-0 Big 12) to run out the clock after blowing much of a 19-0 halftime lead. Skylar Thompson threw for 96 yards in relief of ineffective quarterback Alex Delton, and he led the Wildcats (2-3, 0-2) to a pair of touchdowns in the second half. But after they got the ball back with 7:12 to go, Thompson threw a pair of incompletions as Kansas State went threeand-out, and coach Bill Snyders offense never got another opportunity with the ball. The Longhorns leaned on their defense in the opening half, getting a pair of sacks by Charles Omenihu „ one for a safety „ while shutting down Kansas States powerful run game.No. 21 Michigan State 31, Central Michigan 20EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) „ Brian Lewerke ran for two touchdowns in the “rst half, and Michigan State overcame a slow start and an underwhelming “nish. The Spartans (3-1) entered with the nations top-ranked run defense and held CMU (1-4) to 5 yards on the ground in the “rst half. Michigan State led 31-3 before letting the Chippewas rally. Connor Heyward and LaDarius Jefferson also ran for touchdowns for the Spartans.No. 3 Clemson rallies to beat Syracuse 27-23 AP PHOTOWest Virginias Will Grier throws down “eld during the “rst half of an NCAA college football game against Texas Tech, Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, in Lubbock, Texas. AP PHOTOClemsons Travis Etienne celebrates his touchdown with Tee Higgins and Gage Cervenka during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Syracuse, Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, in Clemson, S.C. Clemson won 27-23. Francois brought the Seminoles back in the second half with touchdown passes of 55 yards to Tamorrion Terry and 25 yards to Tre McKitty. The latter score made it 24-21 with 9:55 left in the game.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida State: The Seminoles needed Murray and Francois heroics to avoid just their second 0-3 start in ACC history, but a tough road still looms ahead. Florida State has ranked opponents Miami (Fla.), Notre Dame and Clemson on their docket. Louisville: The Cardinals offense did look improved and more ef“cient, but mental errors still continue to plague the unit. Pass had a couple of overthrows to open receivers down“eld that could have blown open the game for Louisville. Instead, those missed opportunities allowed the Seminoles to stay in the game, and Pass late play proved devastating.ETHERIDGE RETURNSLouisvilles defense has been hampered by the injury bug all season, but the Cardinals did get one of their playmakers back Saturday. Dorian Etheridge, who missed the last two games after injuring his ankle in the “rst half against Indiana State three weeks ago, started for the Cardinals and made a team-high “ve tackles. The sophomore linebacker was an ESPN All American last season.UP NEXTFlorida State goes on the road again and plays No. 16 Miami next Saturday. Itll be the third straight conference road game for the Seminoles.NOLESFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE 1Fitzgerald “red a perfect pass down“eld to Osirus Mitchell, but the ball bounced awkwardly off his hands and fell to the turf. The Bulldogs had one more chance late in the fourth quarter, but Fitzgerald was sacked on fourth down. Mississippi State has scored just one touchdown over the past two games. Mullens Gators took the “eld to plenty of cowbells and lots of boos before Saturdays game, though the reception wasnt much worse than most opposing teams get in Starkville. Once the game started, highlights were limited. Both teams stuck to a conservative, ground-based offense that produced no “rst-half touchdowns and the Bulldogs took a 6-3 lead into halftime. THE TAKEAWAYFlorida has now won three straight games since losing to Kentucky in the second week of the season. The Gators leaned on their defense one week after the offense carried them to a 47-21 win over Tennessee. It was another ugly performance from Mississippi State, which also lost to Kentucky 28-7 last week. The Bulldogs have no rhythm offensively and are struggling to both run and pass. Its obviously very early in the coach Joe Moorhead-Mississippi State marriage, but right now, its a little rocky in Starkville. Mississippi State managed just 202 total yards.UP NEXTFlorida hosts LSU next Saturday. Mississippi State hosts Auburn next Saturday.FLORIDAFROM PAGE 1

His “rst shot was a corner 3-pointer. And his “rst trip into the lane resulted in getting his shot swatted away. All three of those plays left him smiling. Wades 16th and “nal season „ his last dance,Ž as he calls it „ got off to an unof“cial start Saturday, when the Miami Heat broke training camp at Florida Atlantic University with their annual scrimmage.It was cool,Ž Wade said. Weve been working hard in practice, obviously. But to be out here today in front of some fans, getting to play in a different energy, you could see it in everybody. Guys were moving quicker. Guys were into it.Ž Wade got the big cheer at the start, and his fellow 16-year veteran got the biggest cheer at the end: The “nal play of the scrimmage was Udonis Haslem hitting a game-winning jumper, one that gave his team a 15-13 win in the “nal 10-minute period. Its always fun, man,Ž Haslem said after the “nal shot, a play drawn up by Justise Winslow in a timeout with about 3 seconds remaining. Its always enjoyable to win a game. I still take it seriously. I still play the game at a certain level and compete, so when you have an opportunity you want to make good.Ž The Red, White and Pink GameŽ is an annual Heat tribute to breast cancer survivors, two of whom were honored at Saturdays game. Jeanine Werner is a “fth-grade teacher and a two-year survivor, and Michelle Rohloff is a former teacher and a three-year survivor „ both having beaten triple negative breast cancer. Its very close to us,Ž Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. We want all the survivors to know were right there with them on this “ght and were going to continue to do more each year.ŽBy BARRY WHELANDPA (TNS)SAINT-QUENTINEN-YVELINES, France „ Europe heads into the “nal day of the Ryder Cup with a commanding 10-6 lead over the United States after taking six of the eight points on Saturday. The European team built on the momentum of Fridays foursome sweep of the U.S. by winning three of Saturdays fourball matches and splitting the afternoon foursomes, 2-2. Ahead of Sundays 12 singles matches, captain Thomas Bjorns side is now four-and-a-half points away from wresting the title from the Americans, who have not won on European soil since 1993. No team has managed to make up more than a four-point de“cit on the “nal day of singles matches. Europe came back from 10-6 down to win at Medinah in 2012, and the U.S. achieved the same feat after trailing 10-6 in 1999 at Brookline, Mass. Its been a good day,Ž Bjorn said before warning against any complacency. Weve got to take all that in, and you look at Brookline, Medinah, plenty of examples of these scorelines not meaning a lot until you get to singles,Ž he said. Just keep going. Keep going hard, keep going with what weve got, and you know, Ive seen too many times what the singles does. Its a completely different game tomorrow and that makes a lot of refocusing and getting back into that team room and recover. We used a lot of energy these days. We go again tomorrow. Try and focus on whats ahead.Ž Home team players were on scintillating morning form, and Europe equaled the record „ set by the United States in 1981 „ for the most number of points taken by any team in two consecutive Ryder Cup sessions.
