CHARLOTTE SUN KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED: SENATE OKs SUPREME COURT NOMINEEThe bitterly polarized U.S. Senate narrowly confirmed Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday to join the Supreme Court, which could swing the court rightward for a generation after a battle that highlighted the countrys cultural, gender and political divides.

Or is it? An expert on algae from Florida Atlantic University, Brian Lapointe, thinks people can see what often happens next. They just dont realize it. Toxic algae blooms that started last year have hurt Southwest Florida beaches, killing marine life along with tourism and grabbing headlines. According to Lapointe, septic systems located in the wrong landscapes, as well as aging or unstable sewer infrastructures, are largely to blame. Sewage nitrogen in growing populations is the single factor causing blooms to worsen,Ž Lapointe told the Sun. Lapointe has researched impacts of landbased pollution on water quality for various local governments, such as Charlotte and Lee counties, as well as Monroe County. In Monroe, his work led to a phosphate ban and new state regulations requiring greater nutrient removal from sewage ef”uent. With an estimated 2.6 million septic systems in Florida, according to state “gures, Floridas population is also swelling. Some estimates are at around 900 people moving into the state daily with many going on septic systems, Lapointe said. I think its the ultimate denial,Ž Lapointe said about those who dont believe human waste pollution is largely to blame. People dont want to believe they are part of this problem.Ž Lapointe was contracted a few years ago by Charlotte County to study area waterways and he discovered local conditions are just not conducive for functioning septic tanks. He discovered that 71 percent of the area he studied in Charlotte County does not have adequate soil depth between drain “elds and the seasonally high water tables. That means Charlotte County needs to aggressively move forward with its septic-to-sewer conversion program, IMAGE PROVIDEDSeptic tanks are an unseenŽ source of sewage pollution in Florida waterways, according to a study available online through Charlotte County fr om Florida Atlantic University-Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Marine Ecosystem Health Program titled, Reducing septic tank pollution in Charlotte County: Background Research and scope of work.ŽSUN FILE PHOTOIn recent months dead sh have been a common sight on Southwest Florida beaches.

Through the course of “ve years, Lineberry said he probably had 50 to 60 “rst dates and never had a bad one.Ž Then, he stumbled upon Janet Carmac, 68, and her online pro“le. But she actually emailed him “rst, and one of her messages made a lasting impression. I dont want to be pushy, but it looks like you like to have fun. Im off this Saturday,Ž Carmac wrote to Lineberry. I liked the twinkle in his eye ... I just texted and said Im ready for fun.Ž Its like youre in ninth grade again,Ž Lineberry said. And theyre not the only ones feeling this way. According to a recent study from Provision Living, which analyzed data from the U.S. Census and the popular online dating site match.com, more seniors are now looking for love and companionship online in Florida than any other state. Locally, Punta Gorda ranked 5th in Florida for its percent of seniors who are on the dating site, and 15th nationally, according to Provison Livings Best Cities for Single Seniors study. According to Collin Czarnecki, the researcher for the study, there were 244 pro“les on match.com involving people aged 55 or older in Punta Gorda.

A pastor and motivational speaker who travels to churches and conferences throughout the U.S. and in Canada, Mark was out of town last week. So he held a Wheel of Fortune watch party with family and friends in Coldwater, Mich., on Friday night.

In efforts to snag Republican Thomas Rooneys U.S. House of Representatives District 17 seat, the primary left Republican State Sen.

Experience: Former president of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity at Florida Southern College, B.A. in Political Science at Florida Southern College, former legal assistant for Larry Hardaway and Associates, PA, former sports and talent agent at Platinum Sports Entertainment Group, Inc., former policy advocate for the Community Economic Council, Inc., former dignitary security consultant for International Services of Elite Security, Inc. and former cosmetologist and full specialist at Straight-A-Head Barber Styling, Inc. But within 45 days of the election, Freeman died unexpectedly, leaving the Florida Democratic Party to determine a replacement nominee. After a lawsuit determining who would be eligible to replace Freeman, the party chose Allen Ellison as her substitute. Its obviously not a typical scenario,Ž Steube said. My heart goes out to her family. It just makes things challenging for both sides, her name remains on the ballot so its not like you can do the normal things you do in a campaign. Its just an unusual set of circumstances that makes the race challenging.Ž In one regard its an opportunity and in another its a tragedy,Ž Ellison said. I try to be mindful that a family lost their mother.Ž But, with the election a month away, these two still have to campaign for the more than 490,000 registered voters in the district. Among the nine counties within the district, 43 percent of registered voters are Republican, 30 percent are Democrat and 26 percent are not af“liated with a party. The remaining 1 percent is split between minor parties, with the most popular among those being the Independent Party. Whatever party youre a part of, its about moving society forward in a positive way,Ž Ellison said. I think thats a message that both Democrats and Republicans can get behind.Ž Im running to “x Washington, not let Democrats break it more,Ž Steube said after winning the primary last month. I understand how important it is that we have someone in Congress who puts you “rst and not Washington, D.C., or their own political interest.Ž Ellison was critical of Steubes Trump-centric policy. (Steube) talked a great deal about going to Congress to represent the Trump agenda,Ž he said. I feel like the “rst thing you have to understand as a representative is you are representing the people of your district, the people of this country. You should never go into Congress with the sole aim to represent the President. It goes outside the constitutional and moral obligation of your position.Ž If thats what hes thinking, he has this process confused,Ž Ellison said. This district voted for Trump by 27 points,Ž Steube said. I dont see a change in support for him when I talk to people.Ž What exactly are these candidates focusing on, if they make it to the Capitol? What Ive experienced talking to businesses and employers,Ž Steube said, are the problems with illegal immigration. Your employer is trying to get a workforce that is here legally so they can go through the process to get a good labor force and good employees. So, I think thats one of the biggest issues facing our nation and certainly in our district.Ž Meanwhile, Ellison doesnt particularly have one issue hes focusing on, but rather the needs of the district as a whole. A lot of people who have run in the past are not from here,Ž Ellison said. Im a product of this environment. I know the issues, I know the people, my family and roots are here.Ž One criticism Steube received in the primary from his opponents was he technically does not live in District 17. One of the reasons people havent gotten what they want from their representatives was because (the representative) didnt know what the issues are,Ž Ellison said. I want to make a difference in things that have been overlooked for so long.Ž One issue he mentioned was helping the disabled community, which makes up over 180,000 people in District 17. It affects people across the board, its a non-partisan issue. Its our job as representatives to represent our constituents in a way that helps them.Ž We spent an incredible amount of resources getting our message out in the primary,Ž Steube said. Ive been in the State legislator process for the last eight years. I have a ton of experience compared to the newly appointed nominee.Ž Though Freemans name appears on ballots, a vote for Freeman will go toward Ellison as her substitute nominee. Steubes name is printed on ballots for the Nov. 6 general election.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.com 2018 DECISION Shell Point is located on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River just 2 miles from the Islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018FROM PAGE ONE according to Lapointe. Similar efforts are also continuing in parts of northern Sarasota County. And, local municipalities like Punta Gorda and North Port, have begun to plan, or at least discuss, septic-tosewer conversion in their futures. Residents of Rotonda West and customers of the Englewood Water District, which encompasses most of Englewood „ excluding Englewood East „ are hooked up to a vacuum sewer system that began construction in the mid-1990s. But not everyone believes the science behind the conversions „ or approves of the cost. At least some residents who live in El Jobean, where septic systems are slated to arrive next, have said they also wonder if expanding public sewer systems can really handle all the additional waste. And Lapointe agrees that getting them on sewers isnt necessarily enough. We need to make sure the infrastructure isnt leaking,Ž Lapointe said. For example, some of Charlotte Countys sewer infrastructure „ which goes back to the 1960s in some areas „ failed during Hurricane Irma in September 2017, when 17 lift stations over”owed following power outages and ”ooding. Lift stations are positioned around gravity-based sewer systems to liftŽ waste with a pump and keep it ”owing through pipes toward the wastewater treatment plant. That sent 122,000 gallons of untreated wastewater and 500,000 gallons of reuse quality water into surface waters and prompted a consent orderŽ of repairs and upgrades required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. It was the largest discharge in at least 10 years for the county, which is how long its utility department discharge records have been kept. The county is still working on state-required repairs, but is on track to complete them all by December 2019 as mandated by the state. And it wasnt just Charlotte County that had wastewater over”ows during Irma that were so bad the DEP intervened. Hurricane Irma was an unprecedented storm, with facilities impacted throughout the state,Ž said DEP spokesperson Dee Ann Miller. DEP has executed 42 Consent Order Enforcement Actions covering 84 permitted wastewater facilities for spills resulting from Hurricane Irma.Ž Those also included other facilities in the region, such as the cities of Sarasota, Fort Myers, Tampa, Naples, Cape Coral, Clewiston and Arcadia, along with county-run facilities in Collier, Lee, Sarasota, Hillsborough, Manatee and Polk, according to documents from the DEP. Lapointe con“rmed he thinks these large discharges resulting from Irma, along with ”ooding and runoff from septic systems, could have fed the red tide bloom that started last year and has continued into this year with heavy rainfalls, warming temperatures, lots of sunlight and additional nutrient run-off. Wastewater from failing infrastructure as well as thousands of septic tanks went into the waterways, Lapointe said. That was the nutrient source that began that bloom.Ž But the DEP and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission would not directly respond to whether sewer discharges tied to Irma and ongoing septic system pollution are the main culprit in local algae blooms, such as red tide. And Charlotte County Utilities Department spokesperson Caroline Wannall said: There is no way to determine whether the Irma over”ows directly impacted subsequent red tide blooms.Ž As for the septic pollution, Charlotte County and Punta Gorda of“cials have stated in writing it is at least a contributor of harmful algae blooms like red tide. They also cite it as a reason for why moving forward with sewer conversions is so important.DisagreementKey state agencies are not pointing “ngers about what causes red tide blooms to reach high levels, and stress that the algae is natural in the Gulf of Mexico and blooms that grow to kill “sh and other marine life have recurred over the centuries. When asked whats more to blame for red tide affecting Southwest Florida, an FWC spokesperson declined to say. Red tide is a naturally-occurring microscopic alga that has been documented along Floridas Gulf Coast since the 1840s,Ž said FWC spokesperson Katie Purcell. Blooms, or higher-than-normal concentrations, of the Florida red tide alga, Karenia brevis, occur nearly every year in the Gulf of Mexico.Ž Red tide begins in the Gulf of Mexico 10 to 40 miles offshore and can be transported inshore by winds and currents. And according to FWC, there is no direct link between nutrient pollution and the frequency or initiation of red tides caused by K. brevis. But once red tides are transported inshore, they are capable of using man-made nutrients for their growth.Ž University of Florida Professor and Director of Florida Sea Grant Karl Havens wrote on the universitys website that blooms occur where lakes, rivers or near-shore waters have high concentrations of nutrients „ in particular nitrogen and phosphorous. ƒ In Lake Okeechobee and the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries, man-made nutrient pollution from their watersheds is causing the blooms. Very high levels of nitrogen and phosphorous are washing into the water from agricultural lands, leaky septic systems and fertilizer runoff.Ž Some residents faced with sewer conversion also arent blaming themselves, or their septic systems for water quality problems. And disagreeing with Lapointes view is Suncoast Waterkeeper Andy Mele, an environmental activist. Mele said converting to sewer is always a good thing.Ž But, he said he doubts malfunctioning septic systems are the main culprit in algae blooms, though it may be part of the problem. The real problem is the undue in”uence of big business,Ž said Mele. Agricultural in”uences are most responsible.Ž According to Mele, improving the situation involves not voting for anyone who is in of“ce currentlyŽ and for stricter standards for water quality in Florida. Lapointe noted fertilizer runoff can contribute to the problem, but he said his research involving groundwater in Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie Estuary on Floridas eastern coast indicates septic tanks are putting off nitrogen the most to support past blooms there. His studies identi“ed an arti“cial sweetener called sucralose, which is a tracer of human waste pollution.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY CONVERSIONS THE LATESTCharlotte Countys East/West Spring Lake is its pilot septic to sewer project, with a total estimated cost for the project that runs over $36 million. As of Aug. 20, a total of 1,217 homes have been hooked up to sewer and are no longer on septic systems. The construction started in spring of 2014, and involves 1,855 homes overall to be connected and its estimated to be completed in March of 2019. The project also includes 24 miles of vacuum sewer, two vacuum stations, 6.8 miles of water main replacement, 1.5 miles of reclaimed water main, and storm drainage replacement as needed. The current rate for residents undergoing conversion is $11,500 per lot, to be paid over 20 years with no interest charged. Next up, is the El Jobean area where over 300 properties will be faced with septic to sewer conversion. A public hearing on the proposed assessments will be held at 5:01 p.m. on Nov. 13 at the Charlotte County Administration Center, 18500 Murdock Circle, Rm 119. „ Source: Charlotte CountyDENIAL | 10 MEDICAL MARIJUANA AWARENESS SEMINAR M ED I C A WA R E U AN A E M INAR RSVP via MarijuanaAware.com or call 850-906-5000 FREEADMISSION Morgan Family Community Center Dr. Nagy Farag, MMTC adno=3612008-1 adno=3617523-1 Living Room Meet grocery shoppingPublix groceries delivered right to your door.

We are way overdue for fresh new blood and ideas in Congress, on both sides. These old white guys that have been there for 30-40 years have got to go, and their behavior lately proves that they have overstayed their welcome. I would love to have background checks done on them, and put in front of the public, and see what kinds of things the FBI comes up with. Theyd all probably go to jail.Patricia Fischer Punta GordaThe guiding light of Punta GordaEditor: On or before Nov. 6, voters in Punta Gorda will have a decision to make as to whom will be their councilperson for District 2. My vote would be for Rachel Keesling. Keesling exempli“es all the core competences needed to be an effective government leader. She is a collaborative of“cial with a keen ability to be a team player that can in”uence others. She has demonstrated her analytical skills, making decisions strategically and not with emotion. Keesling has demonstrated her talents in being trustworthy and personally responsible for her convictions. I have served on the Southwest Florida League of Cities Executive Committee with Keesling for three years. She has been our president for over a year. Last year after Hurricane Irma hit our area, Keesling and I along with other FLC of“cials ”ew to Washington, D.C., to meet with Gov. Scott and the Florida congressional delegation to request increased funding from both HUD and FEMA for our counties. After our session with the delegation, Keesling and I met privately with the members of Congress that were responsible for Charlotte and Lee counties. I was most impressed with the relationships that she had with these of“cials. Keesling has worked hard to earn the respect of government of“cials in both counties. Keesling is the guiding lightŽ for the future of Punta Gorda.Bill Ribble EsteroKeeslings decisions not best for cityEditor: Debby Carey is not running for mayor. She is running for Punta Gorda District 2 councilwoman. The mayor is whoever three of “ve councilmen agree on. Rachel Keesling as mayor has allowed the 67-year-old city manager to retire, collect his pension and then rehired him, salary $172,000 for Punta Gorda population of 17,000. The City Council could have hired a 35-year-old city manager for $85,000. Cronyism? The Keeslings own a city lot which, with the right new development, stand for a windfall. When developers come to town with a “st full of dollars, it is synonymous with the public be damned. Ive got nothing against people, its their automobiles I cant stand. More congested traf“c, more crime. The people lose the quality of life while a handful pro“t nicely. Lets keep Punta Gorda a laid back, out-of-the way place. Vote Debby Carey for City Council.Larry Bierman Punta GordaSharing a vision with Rachel KeeslingEditor: As a resident of Punta Gorda, for 26 years, I am proud to support Rachel Keesling for City Council, District 2. Rachel shares my vision for the city of Punta Gorda. Having raised our children here, we want this to be a community that welcomes every generation. A community that is vibrant and thriving and has jobs for working families, as well as affordable places for them to live. Rachel has been an active participant in creating a Punta Gorda that offers a quality of life that is the best in Southwest Florida. I am supporting Rachel, because I share her vision of a strong local economy, excellent schools, beautiful waterfront parks and clean water for generations to come. Please join me in voting for the key to our city, Rachel Keesling for City Council, District 2.Kim Amontree Punta GordaLets consider smaller developmentsEditor: Congratulations to the Punta Gorda City Council for moving forward with their affordable housing project. A proposed plan to develop 4.42 acres, building about 56 housing units. Charlotte County commissioners, addressing the same issue, are considering a 31.8-acre, 600-unit project. The impact to surrounding communities cannot be compared or rushed. This same area is about to experience the in”ux of hundreds as the massive complex at Veterans and Peachland boulevards opens. The intersections at Veterans, Peachland and Kings Highway, are regularly backed up and blocked. Additional traf“c will overwhelm them. Buildings go up quickly, roads and interstate interchanges take years to approve, fund, and construct. The strain the added population will place on our hospitals, emergency services and police must be considered. The need for affordable housing is understood. My question is, why the need for mega developments? Several smaller tracts, located throughout the area, would address the issue without creating the congestion. Development, no matter how badly needed, should only be encouraged once adequate infrastructure is in place. Charlotte County commissioners must weigh the impact to the community and their constituents when contemplating projects of this magnitude.Pat English Port Charlotte In the race for the open state Senate District 23 seat, well-known Republican Party stalwart Rep. Joe Gruters, District 73-Sarasota; faces political newcomer Faith Olivia Babis, a Democrat and disability rights activist. The seat was left open when Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, decided to run for the U.S. House position vacated by District 17 Rep. Tom Rooney. Senate District 23 includes Sarasota County, all of the Cape Haze peninsula and Charlotte County to the Peace River. It is heavily Republican, which makes this a tough challenge for Babis. Not that she hasnt overcome other challenges in her life. Babis, 41, was born with a disability „ she has no arms. She has a specially equipped van which she drove from Sarasota to North Port for our editorial board meeting. She came alone. A native of Lakeland, Babis attended George Washington University and graduated from the University of Memphis. She now works at the Center for Independent Living in Sarasota, assisting and advocating on behalf of those with disabilities. We found her to be knowledgeable and articulate. Florida, she noted, has been ranked 46th in the nation in accessibility „ sidewalks and public transportation, for example. For many people, she said, I cant help you, means something rather tragic.Ž One problem faced by the young and old is the enormous backlog in Medicaid waiver programs, which has left some 77,000 needy people on waiting lists for services. Their challenges were compounded following a bill passed in the last legislative session. Her message to politicians supporting human services ef“cienciesŽ: The buttons youre pushing have actual consequences for people within the district. Unfortunately, I see those consequences every day.Ž In addition, she said, the state made a mistake not accepting federal funding that would have expanded Medicaid coverage. Other issues on her agenda include the environment and red tide. This didnt just happen overnight,Ž she said. We are throwing things into the water that are feeding this, and someone has to be held accountable. We need to put back the environmental regulations we rolled back.Ž Babis opposes school vouchers (diverting public school funding to private schoolsŽ) and armed guards in our schools. Overall, she said, The concept of government functioning like a business is one of the things I have a problem with. Government exists to protect people. Government isnt a business. Looking at government from this perspective really dehumanizes people. We need to be treating people with respect and not as commodities.Ž Gruters, 41, is extremely well-connected and active in Republican politics. He is the longtime chairman of the Sarasota County GOP. Having brought President Trump to Sarasota fundraisers twice to receive the county GOPs Statesman of the YearŽ award „ before the 2016 election „ Gruters was a co-chair of Trumps Florida campaign. Gruters is a Sarasota native. He graduated from Florida State University and received a master of business administration degree from the University of South Florida. He is a CPA. Addressing issues, Gruters said protecting the environment is critical „ witness the fallout from the red tide outbreak „ but the economy tops the list of priorities. My big issue is the economy and jobs, and making sure people can be good providers for their families.Ž He wants to see improvement in technical education in order to “ll the skills gap.Ž I think we can do a better job early on (in school).Ž As for the environment and red tide, Gruter acknowledged it was an extremely critical issue. In Southwest Florida it will be a wake-up call for all of us,Ž he said. People are suffering.Ž Gruters wants to fund more research into red tide and take bigger steps toward “xing Lake Okeechobee. He favors solving the problem using common senseŽ and following the schedule the scientists worked out.Ž He added, The solution is in science and following the guidelines.Ž Gruters also was con“dent the new Legislature would take action to address the problem. I think youll see a concerted effort,Ž he said. On other issues, Gruters said he sponsored legislation that would impose the E-Verify system on employers in order to discourage illegal immigration. With less cheap labor available, wages would rise following market pricing,Ž he said. The solution is to secure the borders and prevent mass migration, and solve the problem that is here.Ž As for education, Gruters noted Sarasota Countys “rst-class system.Ž He said the district was making progress improving fourth grade reading and closing the achievement gap. He supported the special school tax, noting a top-notch system helps the county maintain property values and resist economic downturns. Gruters wants less school testing. He also suggested a district like Sarasota should be able to create a pilot project with alternative testing that would relieve teach-to-the-test pressure. I always think local control is better,Ž he said. Summing up his overall attitude, Gruters said: Im a common-sense thinker who is willing to put the interests of my community over anything else. I look for compromise and look for common-sense solutions.Ž This race features two excellent candidates who, generally, represent their partys values and positions. Neither is a strident ideologue. Both seem willing to engage and debate based on reasoning. Democrats can con“dently vote for Babis; Republicans for Gruters. Independents, take your pick: Babis brings a refreshing, new perspective; Gruters has experience and strong connections that could pay bene“ts for local voters.State Senate District 23 HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9VIEWPOINTCan it really be a year ago that Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a dirtbag and #MeToo became the hashtag to live by? Titans toppled, old scores settled, secrets exposed. While here in Florida ƒ um, what? Political careers ruined (see Latvala, Jack). SB 1628 from Democratic Sen. Lauren Book, tried to create the Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Harassment and Misconduct.Ž It cleared the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee and then died in the machinery of delay in the Legislature. For far too long,Ž Book said at the time, bad actions have been able to hide in the shadows of this process.Ž She spoke of the good ol boys clubŽ where women knew to go along to get along and keep quiet „ or else. Thats only part of it. And the Parkland high school massacre moved from #MeToo to mourning the dead in the horri“c slaughter of innocents. So, here we are „ a year later, with #metoo fading in the public consciousness even after the seemingly nonstop barrage of news from all angles. Bill Cosby is in prison. Al Franken is now a formerŽ U.S. senator. Powerful CBS Entertainment CEO Les Moonves was forced out following multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Actor Kevin Spacey is disgraced. And now, we have come full circle, with the controversy surrounding allegations against Brett Kavanaugh ripping open the wounds anew. Democratic Florida state Sen. Jeff Clemens resigned after admitting to an extramarital affair with a lobbyist. Republican State Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto joined with Book in a statement that said such misconduct, whether in action or in spoken word, has no place in our world and certainly not in our places of work nor in the halls of power.Ž Adding all that to the backdrop of President Donald Trump and the long-standing allegations of sexual messiness against him, and we were supposed to witness a movement that changed the world. But has anything really changed in Florida? It doesnt seem so. There have been many public demonstrations of outrage by women, and more women are stepping into the political arena. But, Democrat Gwen Graham lost her bid to become Floridas “rst female governor when she was defeated in the primary to Andrew Gillum, despite leading in the polls into Election Day, suggesting that voters were more motivated to support Gillums progressive agenda. Politicians on both sides of the aisle publicly denounce any form of sexual harassment, but President Trump has argued that you cant trust female accusers because they might be lying. Thursdays FBI report on the Kavanaugh Supreme Court investigation was denounced as too quick, too shallow, too political to be taken too seriously. Yet, it is likely to put a man on the Supreme Court despite the impassioned appeal by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and others that Kavanaugh sexually harassed them. And Trump mocked Ford at a political rally last week to the cheers of the Republican crowd. In a few weeks, Florida will choose a new governor; its a cointoss whether it will be Gillum or Republican Ron DeSantis. No matter which man wins, there will be chatter about the direction the new governor will take the state on vital issues of the environment, education, health care, taxes, and so on. What about #MeToo? Lets just hope it doesnt become yesterdays news in the wake of tomorrows headlines. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune, where he covered sports, politics and city government. The column moved on website FloridaPolitics.com.Florida cant let #MeToo become yesterdays news Joe HENDERSONFlorida Politics LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Democrats are not concerned about womenEditor: There is no group more undemocratic than nationally elected Democrats. They have mounted an illegitimate fullscale attack on a fully quali“ed jurist. Evidently, it is only Democratic presidents who get to choose justices. Democrats rely on liberal judges to passŽ unconstitutional or unpopular legislation they are unable to pass in state and national legislatures. Treatment of women and beer drinking are farcical excuses. Since Dr. Fords testimony at least two district attorneys have told us that repressed memories recovered through hypnosis are not admissible in court because current events can be inserted. Is that why Ford and her attorneys have refused to submit her 2012 therapists notes? Ford remembers that she had exactly one beer 36 years ago but cannot remember if she provided the Washington Post her therapists notes weeks ago. Sen. Feinstein is the one guilty person in this tragedy. Instead of sharing Fords letter with the committee so that Fords charge could be investigated con“dentially, Feinstein referred Ford to a lawyer „ a member of the Democratic resistance. Feinstein chose to exploit Ford to destroy Kavanaugh. During her testimony, Ford was shocked to “nd out that Sen. Grassley had offered her the option to provide her testimony in con“dence rather than publicly. In this instance, Feinstein and her attorneys worked in concert against her best interests. That Democrats are concerned about women is false. If they were, Democrats would be as interested in discovering the truth of Rep. Ellisons sexual assault case which is current and substantiated.Ron Chapman Punta GordaAnother view of Punta GordaEditor: Every time I see an article about Punta Gorda and the need to increase their budget and we have to pay more taxes to do it, it just makes me want to scream. But just a few weeks ago I see an article how our police departments dont want to enforce our driving and speeding laws because they dont want to upset citizens. If they are breaking the law, enforce it. I drive through and work in Punta Gorda every day in the morning. I get passed in a 30 mph zone by someone doing 60 or more. Never have I seen an of“cer in the area. But you get out in the other end of town and three of“cers are at Waf”e House. Yes, they deserve too have break, but all at the same time? Who is in town patrolling our city? Crack down on the ridiculous driving we all experience every day and add money to the budget. Make the violators pay. More taxes again because our schools need money. Another joke, get rid of the occupants that sit at a desk and do nothing unless you happen to have money and they are part of your social life. I was recently told on a phone conversation with a school employee that he didnt have to listen to my complaint, it isnt his job. But he has a title of Assitant principal or guidance counselor. ESE program is a whole other article. Punta Gorda is a beautiful city but we dont have money when it is there to be made without taking from our citizens.Brian Teeters Punta GordaGov. Scott ”eeing the crime sceneEditor: Sitting in Placida with dead “sh, no water birds, and a stench in the air that smells like death all around, it appears to us Gov. Scott is trying to ”ee the scene of the crime. Are we to believe there is no connection between his sorry deeds and our red tide disaster? In eight years, Scott and the Republican Legislature have dismantled decades of environmental protections. The budgets of “ve water management districts have been slashed by $700 million, and he packed their boards with developers. He “red 134 employees at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. In 2012 Scott and the Legislature eliminated a statewide septic tank inspection program. In 2016, he signed into law weaker standards allowing more toxic chemicals to be dumped into our waterways. His appointees on the South Florida Water Management District dashed plans to buy 46,000 acres of farm land where a reservoir could be built to store over”ow water from Lake Okeechobee. If such a reservoir were built, instead of sending the foul water to Fort Myers and our Gulf, it could be safely stored in a giant holding pond. And now, Scott wants to take his skills to the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C., where he will mess things up even more than he did in Florida! Yes, Red Tide RickŽ is trying to get the heck out of DodgeŽ as fast as possible. He is trying to ”ee the scene of the crime!Gary Berger PlacidaStill time to vote on Bird Section CutEditor: The mayors attitude toward the citizens of the PGI Bird Section in regards to the proposed Bird Cut project is concerning. She squashed a vote attempt suggested by the city manager at an earlier council meeting, declaring that if we voted no,Ž then what? As mayor, she must deal with then what.Ž Roughly 3,000 affected city residents have a right as a group to decide if we want the project completed and/or if we alone are willing to pay the bill. That can only be accomplished via a signed paper ballot, not by a meeting of a few hundred screamers and a City Council apparently more interested in potential increased tax revenues. Refusing to allow a vote by a single city area which will foot the bill seems a dangerous precedent for future type projects. Its not too late for a vote. The city manager has stated that the city decided to pursue this project through the permit stage to see if it was feasible. Now its time for Bird Section residents to decide whether or not to start digging. With no contractor yet selected, and no “nal costs established, there is time to conduct a straw poll. This should have been done early on. I suggest a poll of affected area residents be conducted in mid-November as a majority of snowbirds will have returned. Mayor Keesling, agree to a vote regarding the Bird Cut before the coming election. This is still a democracy, isnt it? Mark J.

Lapointes research in Charlotte County indicates that inadequately treated septic waste is a major source of nitrogen to this system, and that improved wastewater treatment, which currently removes an average of 90 percent of sewage nitrogen, would r educe nutrient loads from septic systems and help mitigate environmental impacts associated with current and future population growth.Ž Meanwhile, Lapointes research in Lee County, more than a decade ago, drew similar conclusions about harmful algae blooms and sewage. According to a report for Lee County by Lapointe and his team, high values of nitrogen in blooms in the Caloosahatchee estuary in Fort Myers were typical of sewage ef”uent,Ž and dense red tide sampled off Sanibel Island in 2004 was also within range of sewage nitrogen.Ž And like this year with Hurricane Irma, the report noted high nitrogen tied to sewage found in earlier blooms tested in Lee County provide strong evidence that these blooms were supported by land-based nitrogen discharges, particularly the massive releases from Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee River that occurred in 2004-2005 following hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jean.Ž As far as this year, though, Havens from University of Florida wrote that after heavy spring rains and because of discharges of water from Lake Okeechobee, river runoff in southwest Florida brought a large amount of nutrients into near-shore waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which fueled the large red tide.Ž And nutrient pollution sources, Havens described, include decaying organic material, fertilizers applied to lawns, and golf courses, manure from fields or feedlots, atmospheric deposition, groundwater discharge, and municipal wastewater d ischarge. There has been picketing with some blaming big sugarŽ and polluted Lake Okeechobee releases into area waterways as the main driver of algae blooms. But according to recent paid advertisements placed by U.S. Sugar, water from Lake Okeechobee discharges come from the north, not from our farms.Ž Lake Okeechobee discharges, other rivers, local nutrient runoff from development and man-made sources are fueling red tide,Ž according to U.S. Sugar. Water from sugarcane farms is cleaned by on-farm soil.Ž And they use best management practicesŽ paid for by farmers. U.S. Sugar said its water is stored and cleaned to the point of being cleaner than rainfall, and then conveyed to Everglades National Park farther south. But Mele said past legislation, namely Senate Bill 552, allowed many agri-businesses in Florida to use best management practices for nutrient releases. He said those practices dont go far enough and that is largely why the years algae blooms have been so widespread and lasting. Lapointe said he doesnt think its farmers who are most to blame. What we havent been dealing with is our own sewage coming from our backyards,Ž Lap ointe said. Its the pot calling the kettle black.ŽEmail: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comDENIALFROM PAGE 4 FLA.

Lauderdale Miami-Dade „ Source: Florida Department of Environmental Protectionstudy reviewed Punta Gorda not as the larger Metropolitan Statistical Area, but as a 21.15square-mile city. That meant almost 2 percent of the citys seniors were on the dating site. Floridas Vero Beach ranked “rst with almost 7 percent. Meanwhile, also in Southwest Florida, Naples made the list at seventh, with almost 4 percent of its seniors online dating. And as recently as Friday, there were 1,873 men and 1,304 women on match.com over 55, within 25 miles of 33950, a Punta Gorda ZIP code. More than half of Punta Gorda is over 55, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Dating certainly has its challenges at any age,Ž said Czarnecki, but it can be especially dif“cult for seniors. When it comes to falling in love later in life, single seniors can often “nd it through mutual friends, in an assisted living center, and now, more than ever, online.Ž And, across the country seniors using dating apps has doubled from six percent in 2013 to 12 percent in 2016, according to a Pew Research Center study. In the case of Lineberry and Carmac, he picked her up from her home and then the two went on a King Fisher Fleet sunset cruise. That was when Lineberry said cue the dolphins,Ž and dolphins popped up on the side of the ship. He said he had planned to have the dolphins there,Ž Carmac said, though she admitted that he probably saw them before she noticed them. But either way, she was smitten. Theres different kinds of “rst dates,Ž Lineberry said. Unfortunately, most people have the job interview date.Ž That can be when two people are seated opposite each other in a restaurant, asking each other what do you doŽ and searching for some sort of connection between each other. Go out and do something fun,Ž Carmac advised. Just do something thats not an interview. Walk on the beach.Ž But ultimately, the two probably wouldnt have met if it werent for the internet, Carmac said. He hangs out in the Punta Gorda area and I was in Venice.Ž An online dating site allows you to meet people outside of your own interests,Ž Lineberry said. Among his “rst dates before meeting Carmac, Lineberry said he enjoyed meeting people that he didnt have any of the same interests with, because its fun. ...

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERCommissioners will vote Tuesday on whether to spend $425,625 for 56 more units of low-income housing at Airport Road. This is one of several votes the commission must consider where state and federal funding requires a commitment of county tax dollars. The vote for local funding of subsidized housing comes with a recommendation from the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee. A county contribution to the proposed project will dramatically improve the odds of getting federal and state “nancing of the $13.2 million project, the projects developer Norstar Development told the affordable housing committee last week. Without a local contribution, the county will likely wait several years for “nancing. More than $305,000 of the $425,625 would come from existing housing funds within the county, according to county reports. The rest would come from money accumulated from un“lled county jobs in social services. Punta Gordas City Council recently approved a zone change to allow the project of 56 apartments for low income people of any age. Neighboring projects on the site are limited to people over 65. The apartments will be limited to people earning below 40 and 60 percent of the median income. Rents are “xed at an affordable rate for people of that income. The commission meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the county building at Murdock Circle.In other agenda items:€ British Petroleum will cover one big expense for the county. Commissioners must vote to spend $1.6 million from BP on the El Jobean sewer project. BP is still paying out money in a federal lawsuit following the Deep Water Horizon oil rig explosion in 2010. Gulf of Mexico communities are still collecting, including Charlotte County. € Commissioners will be considering spending $200,000 of county money to match a state grant for William R.

I have been looking at homes in deed-restricted and non-deed-restricted communities. One of my objectives is to buy a home that will have maximum appreciation during the years I own it. Would I see more appreciation if I buy a home in a deed-restricted area? I would appreciate any other insights you may have on buying in a deed-restricted or non-restricted community. Answer: First, lets run the numbers to see where weve seen maximum appreciation. Im assuming you are looking for a single-family home in Charlotte County. During 2016, the median sales price of single-family homes in deed-restricted communities was $224,000. In 2017, the median sales price jumped to $235,000. Thats an increase of 4.9 percent. The median sales price in non-restricted communities jumped from $159,900 in 2016 to $170,000 in 2017. Thats an increase of 6.3 percent. So, to answer your question, the median sales price of homes increased 1.4 percent more in non-restricted areas compared to deed-restricted areas from 2016 to 2017. Thats not the answer I expected, but thats why we rely on the numbers rather than shooting from the hip. There is a plausible reason why homes appreciated faster in non-restricted areas. As noted above, during 2017, the median sales price of a deed-restricted home was $224,000. The median sales price of a non-restricted home was $170,000. So clearly, non-restricted homes are generally in a lower-priced tier. As we determined in our Sept. 2 column, homes in the lower-half of the price spectrum appreciated signi“ cantly more than homes in the higher-half of the price spectrum from 2014 to 2017. So the reason non-restricted homes appreciated more than deed-restricted homes as a group is more likely the result of non-restricted homes being in a lower-price tier. As far as other insights, you should read the deed restrictions before making an offer on a deed-restricted home. They are usually posted on the web site of the Homeowners Association (HOA). Failure to understand the deed restrictions could adversely affect your lifestyle. For example, some communities prohibit fences. That may be a deal-breaker for dog owners. If you drive your commercial vehicle home at night, verify you can park it in your driveway. Some communities have multiple HOAs. For example, a home may be subject to the deed restrictions and fees of a master HOAŽ, and also subject to the fees and restrictions of a secondary HOA speci“ c to the subdivision. For example, the master HOA fee may be $170 per year. The secondary HOA fee may be $400 quarterly, which covers the cost of yard maintenance and irrigation water. Its a great convenience delegating the yard work to the HOA, but the trade-off will likely be restrictions on what you can plant in your own yard. Most buyers are passionate in their preference for a deed-restr icted versus a non-restricted community. In a deed-restricted community, it is unlikely your home will lose value or become dif“ cult to sell because a neighbor has turned his home in to a junkyard. Conversely, some buyers cannot fathom buying into an area that restricts them from parking their boats and commercial vehicles on their own property. If you are building a new home in a deed-restricted community, it is likely that the HOA will require you to meet architectural standards that maintain the aesthetic character of the neighborhood. This may include the minimum square footage of the home, the pitch of the roof, the size of the overhang, the garage size, the color of the home, etc. These standards will increase your construction costs but protect your home value. If you want to rent your purchase until you retire, note that some communities impose restrictions on the length of ownership before you can rent. They may also regulate the minimum lease period and the number of times you can rent per year. Brett Slattery is broker/ owner of Brett Slattery Realty LLC in Charlotte County.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: I was wondering what happens to my timeshare when I die. I have been trying to put my affairs (in order) to avoid my family having an issue after I pass. Thanks. „ Anonymous A: Planning for the inevitable is one of the kindest gifts you can give those whom you leave behind. Dealing with a probate estate is time-consuming and expensive, as well as often upsetting and occasionally adversarial. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to avoid probate with proper estate planning. When you plan your estate, you need to look at all of your various assets, including bank accounts, investments, your home and other property, including timeshares. The process involves restructuring your ownership of these assets so that they will pass directly to the people you chose when you die, without the need to probate your estate. In effect, you are replacing your willŽ with the plan, although you should still have a will just in case you did not properly plan for any of your assets. Most timeshares are deeded and owned just like any other real estate. The misconception is that the owners share the property but can only use it at certain times. That is not the case. Rather, you own the physical unit „ for example, Unit 702Ž „ only during the speci“ed time, such as Week 23,Ž while other people own it during the other weeks. Timeshares are governed by various agreements and possibly a community association, so you will need to check those documents to see whether there are any restrictions and adjust your plan accordingly. Timeshares can be set up just like any other investment property, with the most common methods including setting up a living trust, or putting the property into a life estate. It is best to consult an estate planning professional to discuss your options. Gary M. Singer is a Florida attorney and board-certi“ed as an expert in real estate law by the Florida Bar.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMES By JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSORMortgage lenders generally require borrowers to include taxes and insurance premiums in their monthly mortgage payments. The additional payments are placed in escrow until the payment dates when the amounts due are paid by the lender. While mortgages are priced on the assumption that tax and insurance payments are escrowed, some borrowers can waive the requirement for a fee „ usually 1/4 of a point, which amounts to $250 for each $100,000 of loan amount. To be eligible for an escrow waiver, the loan amount cannot exceed 80 percent of the lower of sale price and appraised value. An eligible borrower must take the initiative in waiving escrow. Waivers are not allowed on FHA mortgages under any circumstances.Escrow mechanicsWith an escrow, the lender calculates the amount the borrower must pay each month as an addition to the mortgage payment. The borrower can check the calculation using the same HUD-de“ned procedure that the lender uses. (Note: the procedure is explained at How Do I Figure Escrows on my website, www. mtgprofessor.com.) This additional payment goes into the borrowers escrow account. The money in this account belongs to the borrower, though the lender usually keeps the interest on it. The lender is responsible for paying taxes and insurance out of the account.Rationale for the escrow requirementOne rationale for the requirement is that it prevents a potential weakening in the protection provided to the lender by the property. If the homeowner is negligent for any reason and fails to pay the property tax, the tax authority could place a lien on the property that would have a higher priority than the lenders lien. Similarly, if the insurance premium is not paid and the house burns down or is ”ooded away, the lenders protection goes with it. Since this rationale would apply to reverse mortgages as well as standard mortgages, an interesting question is why escrows are not required on the HECM reverse mortgage program. My guess is that because there is no required monthly payment to add it to, policy makers were reluctant to create a payment burden for elderly homeowners. This may have been a mistake.Convenience vs. controlFor many borrowers, having the lender responsible for paying taxes and insurance out of the escrow account is a welcome convenience. When I had a mortgage, I viewed the escrow arrangement that way, because it simpli“ed our budgeting and our life. On the other hand, for control freaksŽ the escrow arrangement is an infringement on their personal autonomy. In support of the control freak, occasionally lenders muck it up. Their systems fail and the payments are not made. I have heard about a number of such cases from borrowers, some of them real horror stories. Yet such events are rare, and when they happen the lenders responsible make the borrowers whole, although they dont compensate them for their time, pain and suffering.Loss of interestWhen you establish an escrow account with the lender, in most states the lender gets to keep the interest earnings on the account. To calculate the interest loss, multiply the escrow account balance every month times 1/12 of the interest rate that you would receive if the account was yours rather than the lenders. For example, if the account balance for December is $2,000 and your bank pays 2 percent on your account, your interest loss for December is $3.33 „ 2,000 times 0.02 divided by 12. Sum the monthly “gures to get the annual loss. A few states require that lenders pay interest on escrow balances. If you are in one of them, subtract the rate you would receive on the escrow account from the rate you would earn on your own account. For example, if lenders must pay 1 percent, your loss in the example would be only 1 percent, amounting to $1.67. Borrowers should keep in mind that in order to retain the interest earnings on their deposits, they must incur the upfront fee required to waive escrow. If you dont want to go through any of these calculations, dont bother. Many borrowers take the path of least resistance by accepting the escrow arrangement, without trying to balance the “nancial pros and cons. To my mind, the key issue is how you feel about relinquishing, versus retaining control over one important segment of your personal “nances. Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

OBITUARIESThomas Francis Rebel Thomas Francis Rebel, 93, of Punta Gorda, FL, died at home 4 May 2018, with his children, Tom and Diana, present. Born 17 September 1924 in Chicago, IL, he was the son of the late Rudolph Peter Rebel and the late Blanche Veronica Rebel (nee Hederman). Tom never knew his father, who died 2 months after he was born. Tom grew up in Chicago and was a graduate of St. Viators and St. Mels high school, where he received four years of ROTC training. The latter stood him in good stead when he joined the Army Air Corps right out of high school. He received his Wings on 12 March 1944 at Lubbock Army Air Field, Texas. He then trained for 1st pilot on a B-24 Liberator Bomber at Liberal, Kansas. Due to his abilities as a pilot, he became a trainer for other B-24 pilots before also qualifying as a B-29 pilot. While stationed in Denver for the B-29 training, he met Alyse Louise Kuniewicz. They were married at Lowry Field on 4 May 1945. Following his discharge, Tom began working for Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. in Youngstown, OH, near his wifes home town of Salem. In a few months the family moved to Peoria, IL. In 1958, after three more moves in Illinois, he started work for KellySpring“eld Tire Co. and moved to West Hollywood, FL. This move allowed him to spend more time enjoying boating and “shing, especially in the Keys (Islamorada), where the family took many vacations. Tom was transferred several more times, over the following years, “rst to Jacksonville, FL, then Decatur, GA, followed by St. Petersburg, FL, Ann Arbor, MI, Dallas, TX, then Duncanville, TX. He found time to attend night school for college credit. Golf became a serious activity. And he got the boat he had always wanted. Tom retired in 1985 and he and Alyse moved to Punta Gorda from Duncanville, TX in 1988. They joined the Twin Isles Country Club in the same year and were Charter Members. He was President of the Club from 1993-1994. The Club became the center of his social life and remained that to the end. Alyse died in 2004, after a long illness, shortly before what would have been their 59th wedding anniversary. Wednesday night SinglesŽ dinner at the Club became a staple in Toms social calendar. Throughout his career, Tom traveled frequently and widely in his job as salesman/“eld engineer. Except for a brief stint as store manager in Tampa, he was generally on the road during the week. Between this and vacations, he managed to visit nearly every state in the continental US as well as Hawaii, Panama, Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland and France, along with several places in the Caribbean. For many years there were monthly stays in Banner Elk, NC. He enjoyed the new experiences that travel provided and was a good traveler. Tom was ”exible and quick-witted and always had a Plan B. He was a bridge fan and played regularly. Another long-time hobby was the stock market. Self-taught, he spent time studying the market and developed the habit of a nightly time on his PC checking on current and possible investments. He loved listening to music and had a good ear and a good sense of rhythm. Tom was especially fond of operettas and the Big Band sounds of the 40s. He built a stereo system from a kit, before systems were widely available, and piped music outside so he could listen on the patio and then the lanai. He also liked dancing, especially when he was younger. Tom was a member of the Elks for 34 years and a member of Punta Gorda Lodge #2606. Tom was gregarious and never happier than being with other people and telling stories„except perhaps on the golf course. He golfed as much as he could, and would adjust his swing as often as necessary to accommodate changes due to age and injury. Gol“ng became his raison detre.Ž It provided fresh air, exercise and comradery. And an opportunity to argue about who won the quarterƒ Tom will be greatly missed by his daughter, Diana Rebel (Phoenixville, PA); son, Tom (Atlanta, GA); grandchildren, Kristi Rebel (Atlanta), Robert Rebel (Bend, OR), Courtney Rebel and husband Josiah Alexander (Atlanta); great-grandson, Koa Rebel; many nieces and a nephew; and his special friend, Marci Luxton. There will be a Memorial Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 211 W. Charlotte Avenue, in Punta Gorda, on Friday, 12 October, at 11 AM. Following the Mass there will be a Celebration of Toms life at Twin Isles Country Club, 301 Madrid Blvd, Punta Gorda. In lieu of ”owers, memorial donations may be made to the Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Salvation Army, and the American Red Cross, or any charity of your choice.

By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERPunta Gorda drivers frustrated by the congestion on Olympia Avenue near Sullivan Street will have to continue to be patient and alert when navigating the area. (Florida Department of Transportation) has closed the outside lane of Olympia Avenue between U.S. 41 and Sullivan as a safety precaution because of an issue with an underground drainage structure,Ž said Zachary Burch, FDOT spokesperson. Just to clarify, this is not a sinkhole, which is naturally occurring. This is related to drainage that is failing.Ž FDOT was soliciting bids to make a permanent repair to the system as soon as possible. Motorists should expect that lane to remain closed while we work to make the repairs,Ž said Burch. DBI Services, a contractor for FDOT, has performed multiple pothole repairs in the area, according to Mary Jo Dungee in a statement posted by Punta Gorda staff on the citys Facebook page. In this section, however, when a repair was prepped, the company found the problem was larger than just a pothole. Instead, they found that there was a compromised storm drainage system, stretching beyond the initial hole. I fear there is going to be a bad accident at this site,Ž wrote Punta Gorda resident Donna Flagg in the comment section of the citys post. I have been cut off and almost hit by several cars and F-150 truck ... You have to be very alert when driving in this area.Ž In the post, it was noted that DBI contracted a sewer viewerŽ to check the drainage structures. The contractor found that there was significant damage to the structure in more than one spot. It was originally thought that we could make the temporary “x prior to soliciting bids for a complete repair/ replacement,Ž wrote Dungee, (but) to back“ll the opening so that the traf“c lane can be re-opened would only cause further damage to the already deteriorating system. DBI cannot in good conscience make a temporary repair that is not completely up to our safety standards as well as that of our citizens. I know that the lane closure is an inconvenience.Ž The area in question is entirely in FDOTs jurisdiction, and the city doesnt have authority to take action, according to a spokesperson for the city, Melissa Reichert.Email: dsutphin@sun-herald.com FDOT to plug hole on Olympia Avenue, Sullivan Street in PG SUN PHOTO BY DANIEL SUTPHIN A hole recently formed on the corner of south side of Olympia Avenue and Sullivan Street.

The CRA Advisory Board will begin its open discussionŽ Monday on what direction, projects, activities and plans should be in its Englewood Community Redevelopment Plan. The advisory board meets at 1 p.m. at the Lemon Bay Park and Environmental Center, 570 Bay Park Blvd. First created in 1998, the CRA sunsets in 2029. The CRA “nances redevelopment and other projects through tax-increment “nancing (TIF). The TIF funding strategy calls for a portion of property tax revenue increases within the CRA to be channeled back for infrastructure and other projects. The Englewood CRA saw a drop in revenue due to the recession, but in recent years the annual funding built back up. In 2016, the CRA received $1.4 million and in 2017, revenues increased to $1.6 million. We have several projects coming up in the next couple of years,Ž said Elaine Miller, a longtime member of the advisory board. Miller cited a beauti“cation project along West Dearborn Street as one of the major projects still left to be done. County staff is now reviewing engineering that calls for new streetlights and landscaping, new parking and other streetscaping improvements along West Dearborn Street. Construction wouldnt begin any earlier than next spring. The advisory board also wants to look at infrastructure improvements along South McCall Road from the Dearborn Street intersection to its State Road 776 intersection. Miller also believes redevelopment will be spurred by the recent decision of the Sarasota County Commission to increase from 13 to 25 units per acre for future mixed commercial-residential development of properties along W est Dearborn and one block north and south of Dearborn. The redevelopment plan is available online at www.scgov. net/Home/ShowDocument?id=33740.

The Clerk of Court handles petitions for injunction against all forms of violence at its of“ce and online at charlotteclerk.com. Many domestic violence victims are referred from the clerk to C.A.R.E. for assistance. We were really trying to brainstorm (fundraising ideas), because we refer a lot of people to C.A.R.E. every day,Ž said Stephanie Sousa, who works with victims of domestic violence on a day-to-day basis. Its important we are able to support them.Ž Clerk Roger Eaton said the clerks planned the event both to raise money for C.A.R.E. and to promote awareness about the organization and the prevalence of domestic violence.

For all of October, the clerks website will be colored purple to signify support of domestic violence awareness.

The North Port City Commissioners will meet at 1 p.m. on Tuesday for their regular meeting, which includes the discussion of banning fertilizer use in the city. Their discussion follows Venice, who are looking to do a similar repeal. Currently, Sarasota County and North Port have a fertilizer ban from June 1 to Sept. 30. Commissioners will also have a second and “nal review of plans for a Racetrac next to the old Walgreens, across from the Warm Mineral Springs Motel at the corner of U.S. 41 and Talon Bay Drive. A street name change in West Villages and possibly awarding funds from the Special Event Assistance Program are also on the agenda. The meetings can be viewed live online at cityofnorthport.legistar. com/Calendar.aspx or on YouTube under City of North Port.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.comNorth Port commissioners set to talk fertilizer ban By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT „ Updates on River Road widening are moving at a slow pace, but the North Port City Commission are working to do their part to get it started. Earlier this summer the county commissioners asked the City Commission to pledge money for the widening project. At their Thursday meeting, the city commissioners ultimately voted 5-0 to pledge $2 million at the beginning of the project. If the countys application for a State Infrastructure Bank loan gets approved, North Port would pay 50 percent of the West Villages Improvement District impact fees up to $6 million. Im looking forward to seeing the road get done,Ž Commissioner Debbie McDowell said. The money will all come from the West Villages Improvement District transportation impact fees. Their proposal will be given to the county commissioners, who will write up an agreement. The agreement will be given back to the city commissioners for approval at a later meeting date. While they will tentatively use 50 percent of the fees, City Attorney Amber Slayton will check to see if any of the remaining funds can be for other North Port projects such as the widening of Price Boulevard. The city collected $993,520 in transportation impact fees in 2016, about $1 million in 2017 and more than $1 million has come in already this year. For now, where were at with the informa tion we have, Im certainly on board on moving in this direction,Ž Vice Mayor Linda Yates said. Especially saying over and over how much a priority this is. Im going to support this and look forward to information coming with the amount that has to be spent in that area.

Each cancer patient approaches their diagnosis and treatment differently, but making an effort to keep life as normal as possible while being treated for cancer can help people overcome their disease and prevent them from dwelling on the adverse effects cancer can have on their lives. Though the idea of maintaining a level of normalcy may be the furthest thing from a persons mind upon being diagnosed with cancer, the National Cancer Institute notes that people with cancer can still enjoy life. Daily routines such as going to work and spending time with family and friends can lift cancer patients spirits and give them a sense of purpose beyond beating cancer. Cancer treatments can produce a host of both minor and signi“cant side effects. During treatment, many cancer patients experience fatigue, nausea and/or vomiting. When symptoms allow, cancer patients should do their best to live as normal a life as possible during their treatments. Achieving such normalcy may require a few tweaks to ones typical routine, but such changes are minor. € Let others know when you plan to exercise.

PROVIDED BY MCCA breast cancer diagnosis can be a devastating blow. Upon receiving such a diagnosis, people may begin to ask questions about treatment and the impact cancer may have on their personal lives. Many people who are diagnosed with cancer also begin to wonder about their mortality. An estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year, according to Breastcancer. org. The good news is that breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000 after increasing for the previous two decades. In addition, death rates from breast cancer have been decreasingly steadily since 1989. The National Cancer Institute says that the change in age-adjusted mortality rates are an indicator of the progress being made in the “ght against breast cancer. The most recent SEER Cancer Statistics Review released in April 2018 indicates cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent per year between the years of 2006 and 2015. The American Cancer Society says that decreasing death rates among major cancer types, including prostate, colorectal, lung, and breast cancers, are driving the overall shift in survival. The ACS says breast cancer death rates among women declined by 39 percent from 1989 to 2015. That progress is attributed to improvements in early detection and treatment protocols. For anyone doing the math, over the last 25 years or so, 322,000 lives have been saved from breast cancer. A similar scenario has unfolded in Canada. Breast cancer mortality rates in Canada recently decreased to 21.4 percent, down from 21.8 percent in 2011, states data from the Canadian Cancer Society. Currently, the “ve-year survival rate for breast cancer among Canadians is 87 percent, and the “ve-year net survival in the United States is 85 percent. Increased knowledge about breast cancer, early detection through examinations and mammography and improved treatments are helping to drive up the survival rates of breast cancer. Although this does not make diagnosis any less scary, it does offer hope to those recently diagnosed.

In fact, the topic of the day was something entirely different „ post traumatic stress disorder. Theres so many people out there with post-traumatic stress disorder,Ž Swing, 84, said. Theres a very good acupuncture treatment for it.Ž According to WebMD, PTSD is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. PTSD is a lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror, such as a sexual or physical assault, the unexpected death of a loved one, an accident, war, or natural disaster.Ž Swing believes the NADA protocol can be used to treat PTSD through acupuncture because the technique specifically targets behavioral health. I have one Vietnam veteran I treated,Ž Swing related. He had violent nightmares for 41 years. Five treatments cured him. I did six-month and one-year follow-ups with him, and the nightmares had not returned.Ž PTSD is common among veterans, law enforcement and first responders, as well as women and children who have been physically or sexually abused. But it is not exclusive to those groups. According to the National Center for PTSD, about 6 out of 10 men and 5 out 10 women experience at least one trauma in their lives. Women are more likely to experience sexual assault and child sexual abuse. Men are more likely to experience accidents, physical assault, combat, disaster, or to witness death or injury.Ž Swing says the acupuncture technique he practices will work for all those groups. Im trying to reach everybody,Ž said Swing, who has been practicing medicine for 50 years and acupuncture for 20. Its so treatable. Its a simple treatment.Ž One day, maybe, another index card will go up on his wall. Swings practice, Au-Heal, is located at 2400 Harbor Blvd., Suite 18, in Port Charlotte.

They also play an important role in the maintenance of our balance, Yet, as incredible as they are, the eyes can be abused to the point of becoming incapable of functioning adequately. For many people, age 50 and older, diseases such as AMD (agerelated macular degeneration) and cataracts are quite common. These diseases can lead to blindness. For over twenty “ve years, the Fusion One natural health system has used its eye healthŽ program to assist the general public. The program is holistic in its approach and is both safe and effective. At the heart of the program are the following four components: Positive eye maintenance behavior. Resting the eyes frequently when reading, watching television or using the computer would be an example of positive eye maintenance behavior. General health maintenance. Checking the health of the eyes regularly, getting adequate amounts of sleep, ensuring that blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal, not smoking, and exercising regularly are activities that would fall under general health maintenance. Eye health speci“c food selection. The main purpose of this component is to ensure that foods conducive to the health of the eyes are consumed regularly and in adequate amounts. Examples of such foods are: egg yolk; sweet potato and carrots; “sh such as sardines and salmon that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids; leafy greens such as kale and spinach and foods such as Brussels sprouts, oranges, kiwi and strawberries that are high in vitamin c. Eye Exercises. The Fusion One eye healthŽ program offers a vast number of exercises that are designed to rest, relax, strengthen and improve the functioning of the eyes. A good one to do when reading, watching television or using the computer is to, occasionally, look away and focus on an object 10 to 20 feet in the distance. Focus for about two minute, and then rest the eyes by closing them and covering them with the palms of the hands. Rest for about two minutes then resume your activity.

The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3PROVIDED BY WWW.WEBMD.COMThe American Cancer Society recommends that all women ages 35 to 39 have one baseline screening mammogram. All women 40 and older should get a yearly screening mammogram for as long as a woman is in good health. However, if you have a family history of cancer, any new breast problem or other high-risk factors, it may be recommended to start screening at an earlier age. For those who are scheduling their “rst mammogram, Highlands Today has compiled some information so that you know what to expect. BEFORE YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. Your doctor will place an order for your mammogram with a lab. Try to schedule the procedure during the point in your menstrual cycle when your breasts are the least tender. 2. You will not be able to wear deodorant or body powder or cream. Schedule an early morning test so you dont have to go all day without these necessities. Pack these items in your bag or purse so you can apply them after the procedure is over. 3. Be sure to specify whether you would prefer a male or female technician, or if you dont mind either way. 4. When getting dressed on the day of your mammogram, opt for pants or a skirt instead of a dress. Youll feel more comfortable dressed in your hospital gown if you have something to cover your bottom half. DURING YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. The mammography technician is a trained, licensed X-ray technician who will position your breasts correctly and operate the machinery. 2. Your technician will ask you a few questions „ your doctors name, your address, if you have any lumps in your breasts or have had breast surgery. If you have breast implants, let him or her know. 3. The technician might place stickers on your nipples and on any moles you may have on your breasts, so they are easier to identify in the “nal images. 4. Youll take the test standing up. The height of the machine will be adjusted so you can easily place your breast onto the shelfŽ of the machine. The technician will position your breast correctly as you lean in. 5. As the machine compresses your breast, youll be asked to hold your breath. Just like any other X-ray, it takes only a few seconds for the image to be captured. As soon as its captured, the machine will automatically release your breast. It might be uncomfortable, even a bit painful, but just know that it will last only a moment for each image. 6. A basic mammogram requires four images: one of each breast compressed from top to bottom and one of each breast compressed from side to side. The technician might take more if he or she sees a possible lump, or if the doctor has requested another angle. AFTER YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. Once all the images are captured, youll be asked to head back to the waiting room. 2. Dont remove the gown just yet „ the technician may need to capture another shot or angle. He or she will let you know when you can get dressed and leave. 3. Your technician cannot discuss your test results with you. They will be sent to your doctor, who will reveal the results and let you know any next steps you might need to take.Your first mammogram ƒ What to expect fatigue is at its worst. But physical activity when symptoms are less severe can provide the energy boost cancer patients need along with all of the other bene“ts routine exercise provides. The NCI advises cancer patients to get their physicians approval before exercising during treatment. In addition, patients should let loved ones know when and where they are planning to exercise as a safety precaution. € Work from home. Going to work is another way for cancer patients to maintain some normalcy during their treatments. On days when treatment-related symptoms make it dif“cult to travel, men and women can work from home. Doing so will provide a sense of ful“llment at the end of the workday without having to navigate potentially taxing commutes to and from the of“ce. € Set goals. The NCI advises cancer patients to think about what they want to do when they feel well again. Setting goals can give patients in treatment something other than beating cancer to work toward. Planning an overseas trip or learning about a potential career change can focus patients on goals that do not involve their disease. Daily life during cancer treatment need not be vastly different from how it was prior to diagnosis. Some tweaks to patients typical routines may be necessary, but they can still live full lives as they work toward beating their disease.NORMALCYFROM PAGE 1 TNS PHOTOIt is recommended that all women ages 35 to 39 have one baseline screening mammogram.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCApproximately 39.6 percent of men and women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes, says the National Cancer Institute. The Canadian Cancer Society states that almost half of all Canadians will develop cancer. A cancer support team can help men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer “ght their disease and handle its side effects. Supportive family, friends and medical professionals can help many people cope with the emotional and physical effects of cancer.Counselors/ therapistsThe support of a mental health professional can help cancer patients cope with the psychological impact that their disease can have. Some therapists are specially trained to treat those diagnosed with cancer. Doctors may recommend that their patients seek help with managing the emotions that can arise after a cancer diagnosis, such as depression, anxiety and confusion.Oncology social workersCertain counselors help individuals better understand their health care system and options concerning treatment. Questions regarding how to pay for care and if insurance can cover it can be a major source of stress for those with longterm illnesses like cancer. These specialty social workers can help patients navigate the system and learn what to expect.Support groupsGroups offer support in various ways. Simply knowing there are others out there in similar situations can help individuals feel as though they are not alone in their “ght against cancer. Support groups can be as formal or informal as patients prefer. Such groups may simply be a group of friends who gather regularly to chat. However, there are some organizations designed specifically to provide support for cancer patients. Peer-led groups are facilitated by group members. Professionally-led groups are typically overseen by a trained medical professional. Groups may meet in person or be available through online social networks. Some support groups may be designed for speci“c people, including the relatives of people with cancer, spouses, people of certain age groups, and any combination thereof.Medical staffQuali“ed and compassionate oncologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, nurses, and others can make cancer treatment a little easier to swallow. Find staff who are professional and knowledgeable, but also empathetic.Friends and familyOf course no cancer support team would be complete without close friends and family members. These are the people who cancer patients must rely on to accompany them to appointments, run errands and offer comfort when needed. The “ght against cancer is never easy, but the right support team can alleviate some of the stressors and burdens.Build a cancer support team PHOTO PROVIDEDFamily, friends, doctors, and support groups can help cancer patients cope with their disease. suppresses the activity of the immune system and is administered after an organ transplant to help prevent rejection.Ž Didnt you once mention a medication derived from bacteria found on Easter Island,Ž I offered. Youre right,Ž he replied, then couldnt help adding, but dont go getting a big head.Ž Dr. Johnson explained that the drug in question, rapamycin, acts as an immune system suppressor and is used to coat coronary stents and prevent organ transplant rejection. Back to the bag he went, removing a small branch from some sort of evergreen tree. Ever heard of Taxol?Ž he asked, and when I meekly nodded, he went on: Its the most the most well-known natural-source cancer drug in the United States and is on the World Health Organizations List of Essential Medicines, which includes the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system? Then, holding he twig aloft as if presenting the “nal piece of damming evidence to the judge and jury, he proclaimed, It comes from this! The bark of the Paci“c yew.Ž Case dismissed,Ž I almost shouted, but listened instead as the doctor explained that the chemotherapy medication is used to treat ovarian cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer, pancreatic cancer and more. Next from the bag came a thin stalk of bamboo with several stems shooting out and sporting green leaves and little yellow ”owers. This is curare,Ž he announced, or I should say, this is where curare comes from, one of a number of South American plants whose bark and stems produce a poison plant extract that paralyzes the motor nerves. It was traditionally used by some indigenous peoples to poison their arrows and blowpipe darts.Ž Physicians use drugs derived from or inspired by curare-like drugs to relax muscles when correcting dislocations or setting bone fractures, noted Dr. Johnson. These drugs also help control muscle spasms during convulsions associated with tetanus, epilepsy, drug overdose and following black widow spider bites. In addition, they are used during tracheal intubation and help make examinations of the larynx, bronchial tubes, and esophagus easier. At any given time, the FDA and the drug companies are studying thousands of folk and natural remedies for pharmacological properties,Ž said the doctor, reaching into his bag and lifting out wooden box by a handle on top. The box was about a foot long and four inches high, with several quarter-sized holes drilled along the top edges. He set the box on the ”oor and removed a pair of heavy leather gloves from his bags. What now?Ž I wondered aloud. Wait and see,Ž Dr. Johnson replied. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 PROVIDED BY MCCThe United Nations estimates that the world is home to 7.6 billion people. None of those people, regardless of their ethnicity, race or gender, are immune to cancer. According to the World Health Organization, cancer is the second-leading cause of death across the globe. Responsible for nearly nine million deaths in 2015, cancer is a formidable foe but one that can be defeated. For example, the SEER Cancer Statistics Review released in spring of 2018 indicated that cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent between 2006 and 2015. Even more encouraging is the decline in breast cancer death rates, which the American Cancer Society says decreased by 39 percent between 1989 and 2015. Various factors have contributed to the decline in cancer death rates. While advancements in treatment protocols and education programs that have emphasized the importance of cancer screenings have had profound impacts, individuals avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices also has made a difference in reversing cancer death rates. Research into cancer prevention is ongoing, but the following are some healthy lifestyle choices that may help people reduce their cancer risk. € Avoid tobacco. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that cigarette smoking kills almost half a million people in America alone each year. Nearly 10 percent of those deaths occur due to exposure to secondhand smoke. Lung cancer is not the only type of cancer that smoking has been linked to, as the Mayo Clinic notes smoking also has been connected to cancers of the mouth, throat, larynx, pancreas, bladder, cervix, and kidney. By avoiding or quitting tobacco, men and women can reduce their own cancer risk and reduce the likelihood that their nonsmoking loved ones will develop cancer related to secondhand smoke. € Eat right. The WHO notes that many countries have implemented programs encouraging the consumption of “ve or more portions of fruits and vegetables per day. Those programs are a result of studies showing the potential relationship between a healthy diet and a reduced risk of cancer. For example, the National Cancer Institute says studies conducted on animals have shown that antioxidants, which can be found in various fruits and vegetables, can prevent the type of cell damage associated with the development of cancer. € Protect skin from the sun. In 2018, the American Cancer Society notes that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer in the United States each year than all other cancers combined. While overexposure to the sun is not the only way a person can develop skin cancer, protecting skin from the sun is a great way for people to signi“cantly reduce their risk for the disease. The Mayo Clinic recommends people avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m, when the sun's rays are strongest. People also should apply and reapply generous amounts of sunscreen when spending time outdoors. € Speak with a physician about immunizations. The Mayo Clinic notes that protecting oneself against certain viral infections also may help men and women reduce their cancer risk. For example, hepatitis B has been linked to liver cancer. Certain people, including those who are sexually active but not monogamous, intravenous drug users and health care or public safety workers who may be exposed to infected blood or body ”uids, are at greater risk of hepatitis B than others, and such people should speak with their physicians about being vaccinated. Cancer can affect both healthy and unhealthy people. But certain cancer prevention strategies may help men and women lower their cancer risk. nts of sunscreen when spending time outdoors.Lifestyle choices that can decrease cancer risk PHOTO PROVIDEDWhile advancements in treatment protocols and education programs that have emphasized the importance of cancer screenings have had profound impacts, individuals avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices also has made a dierence in reversing cancer death rates. Research into cancer prevention is ongoing, but the following are some healthy lifestyle choices that may help people reduce their cancer risk. PROVIDED BY MCCWhile the vast majority of breast cancer diagnoses involve women, men are not immune to the disease. According to the American Cancer Society, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about one in 1,000 among men in the United States. By comparison, the risk for women in the United States is one in eight. While a mans risk for breast cancer is considerably lower than a womans, the ACS still estimates that roughly 480 men will die from breast cancer in 2018, when more than 2,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men. In addition, the ACS notes that black men diagnosed with breast cancer tend to have a worse prognosis than white men. Though breast cancer may be a disease widely associated with women, men should not hesitate to report any discomfort to their physicians, as the National Cancer Institute notes that men are often diagnosed with breast cancer at a later stage than women. The ACS suggests that men may be less likely to report symptoms, thereby leading to delays in diagnosis. The more advanced the cancer is at the time of diagnosis, the lower the patients survival rate. Men are urged to report any discomfort or abnormalities in their chests to their physicians immediately.Men are not immune to breast cancerPROVIDED BY MCCThe well-known breast cancer advocacy and research group Susan G. Komen indicates that, according to the most recent data available, 1.7 million new cases of breast cancer occurred among women worldwide in 2012. Western Europe, North America and northern Europe have the highest breast cancer incidences in the world, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the World Health Organization. Women diagnosed with breast cancer may want to begin their treatment journeys by educating themselves on the anatomy of the breast so they can better understand their disease and how it develops. The structure of the breast is complex and comprised of fat, glandular tissue, connective tissue, lobes, lobules, ducts, lymph nodes, blood vessels, and ligaments. The following is a breakdown of the common components of the breast. € Fat cells: The female breast is largely fat cells called adipose tissue. This tissue extends from the collarbone down to the underarm and across to the middle of the rib cage. The main purpose of adipose tissue is to store energy in the form of fat and insulate the body. € Lobules: Each breast contains several sections that branch out from the nipple. Lobule glands make milk and are often grouped together to form lobes. There may be between 15 and 20 lobes in each breast, says the Cleveland Clinic. Each lobe has roughly 20 to 40 lobules. € Ducts: Connecting the lobules are small tubes called ducts. The ducts carry milk to the nipples of the breasts. There are around 10 duct systems in each breast, each with its own opening at the nipple. € Nipple: The nipple may be the most recognizeable part of the breast. It is in the center of the breast. The lobules will squeeze milk into the ducts, which then transfer it to the nipples. Most nipples protrude outward, but according to Health magazines medical editor Roshini Rajapaksa, MD, some women have ”at or inverted nipples. The nipples do not have a singular hole for the milk to come out like an arti“cial bottle nipple. Rather, there are many lactiferous duct outlets in each nipple that correspond to the ducts in each breast. € Lymph system: Snaking through the adipose tissue are lymph vessels and nodes. The lymph system distributes disease-“ghting cells and ”uids as part of the immune system, states the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. Beanshaped lymph nodes in “xed areas through the system “lter abnormal cells away from healthy tissue. € Areola: The areola is pigmented skin surrounding a nipple. The areola contains tubercles called Montgomerys glands, which secrete lubricating materials to make breastfeeding more comfortable. Changes in any areas of the breast may be indicative of cancer. That is why women are urged to understand their breasts normalŽ appearance and feel so they can recognize any changes and address them with a doctor right away.Learning breast anatomy is important for health Find it in the CLASSIFIEDS!

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCWhen receiving treatment for breast cancer, women will learn about cancer staging. According to the nonpro“t organization Breastcancer. org, determining the stage of the cancer helps patients and their doctors “gure out the prognosis, develop a treatment plan and even decide if clinical trials are a valid option. Typically expressed as a number on a scale of 0 through IV, breast cancer stage is determined after careful consideration of a host of factors. The staging system, sometimes referred to as the TNM system, is overseen by the American Joint Committee on Cancer and ensures that all instances of breast cancer are described in a uniform way. This helps to compare treatment results and gives doctors and patients a better understanding of breast cancer and the ways to treat it. Breastcancer.org notes that the TNM system was updated in 2018, but before then was based on three clinical characteristics: T: the size of the tumor and whether or not it has grown into nearby tissue N: whether the cancer is present in the lymph nodes M: whether the cancer has metastasized, or spread to others parts of the body beyond the breast While each of those factors is still considered when determining breast cancer stage, starting in 2018, the AJCC added additional characteristics to its staging guidelines, which make staging more complex but also more accurate. € Tumor grade: This is a measurement of how much the cancer cells look like normal cells. € Estrogenand progesterone-receptor status: This indicates if the cancer cells have receptors for the hormones estrogen and progesterone. If cancer cells are deemed estrogen-receptorpositive, then they may receive signals from estrogen that promote their growth. Similarly, those deemed progesterone-receptorpositive may receive signals from progesterone that could promote their growth. Testing for hormone receptors, which roughly two out of three breast cancers are positive for, helps doctors determine if the cancer will respond to hormonal therapy or other treatments. Hormonereceptor-positive cancers may be treatable with medications that reduce hormone production or block hormones from supporting the growth and function of cancer cells. € HER2 status: This helps doctors determine if the cancer cells are making too much of the HER2 protein. HER2 proteins are receptors on breast cells made by the HER2 gene. In about 25 percent of breast cancers, the HER2 gene makes too many copies of itself, and these extra genes ultimately make breast cells grow and divide in ways that are uncontrollable. HER2positive breast cancers are more likely to spread and return than those that are HER2-negative. € Oncotype DX score: The oncotype DX score helps doctors determine a womans risk of early-stage, estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer recurring and how likely she is to bene“t from post-surgery chemotherapy. In addition, the score helps doctors “gure out if a woman is at risk of ductal carcinoma in situ recurring and/or at risk for a new invasive cancer developing in the same breast. The score also helps doctors “gure out if such women will bene“t from radiation therapy or DCIS surgery. Determining breast cancer stage is a complex process, but one that can help doctors develop the most effective course of treatment. More information is available at www. breastcancer.org.

Each cancer patient approaches their diagnosis and treatment differently, but making an effort to keep life as normal as possible while being treated for cancer can help people overcome their disease and prevent them from dwelling on the adverse effects cancer can have on their lives. Though the idea of maintaining a level of normalcy may be the furthest thing from a persons mind upon being diagnosed with cancer, the National Cancer Institute notes that people with cancer can still enjoy life. Daily routines such as going to work and spending time with family and friends can lift cancer patients spirits and give them a sense of purpose beyond beating cancer. Cancer treatments can produce a host of both minor and signi“cant side effects. During treatment, many cancer patients experience fatigue, nausea and/or vomiting. When symptoms allow, cancer patients should do their best to live as normal a life as possible during their treatments. Achieving such normalcy may require a few tweaks to ones typical routine, but such changes are minor. € Let others know when you plan to exercise.

Exercise may be dif“cult, if not impossible, when treatment-related Health & Hope DanMEARNSC PHOTO PROVIDEDEarly detection and better treatment options are improving the chances of surviving breast cancer. PROVIDED BY MCCA breast cancer diagnosis can be a devastating blow. Upon receiving such a diagnosis, people may begin to ask questions about treatment and the impact cancer may have on their personal lives. Many people who are diagnosed with cancer also begin to wonder about their mortality. An estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year, according to Breastcancer. org. The good news is that breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000 after increasing for the previous two decades. In addition, death rates from breast cancer have been decreasingly steadily since 1989. The National Cancer Institute says that the change in age-adjusted mortality rates are an indicator of the progress being made in the “ght against breast cancer. The most recent SEER Cancer Statistics Review released in April 2018 indicates cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent per year between the years of 2006 and 2015. The American Cancer Society says that decreasing death rates among major cancer types, including prostate, colorectal, lung, and breast cancers, are driving the overall shift in survival. The ACS says breast cancer death rates among women declined by 39 percent from 1989 to 2015. That progress is attributed to improvements in early detection and treatment protocols. For anyone doing the math, over the last 25 years or so, 322,000 lives have been saved from breast cancer. A similar scenario has unfolded in Canada. Breast cancer mortality rates in Canada recently decreased to 21.4 percent, down from 21.8 percent in 2011, states data from the Canadian Cancer Society. Currently, the “ve-year survival rate for breast cancer among Canadians is 87 percent, and the “ve-year net survival in the United States is 85 percent. Increased knowledge about breast cancer, early detection through examinations and mammography and improved treatments are helping to drive up the survival rates of breast cancer. Although this does not make diagnosis any less scary, it does offer hope to those recently diagnosed.

In fact, the topic of the day was something entirely different „ post traumatic stress disorder. Theres so many people out there with post-traumatic stress disorder,Ž Swing, 84, said. Theres a very good acupuncture treatment for it.Ž According to WebMD, PTSD is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. PTSD is a lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror, such as a sexual or physical assault, the unexpected death of a loved one, an accident, war, or natural disaster.Ž Swing believes the NADA protocol can be used to treat PTSD through acupuncture because the technique specifically targets behavioral health. I have one Vietnam veteran I treated,Ž Swing related. He had violent nightmares for 41 years. Five treatments cured him. I did six-month and one-year follow-ups with him, and the nightmares had not returned.Ž PTSD is common among veterans, law enforcement and first responders, as well as women and children who have been physically or sexually abused. But it is not exclusive to those groups. According to the National Center for PTSD, about 6 out of 10 men and 5 out 10 women experience at least one trauma in their lives. Women are more likely to experience sexual assault and child sexual abuse. Men are more likely to experience accidents, physical assault, combat, disaster, or to witness death or injury.Ž Swing says the acupuncture technique he practices will work for all those groups. Im trying to reach everybody,Ž said Swing, who has been practicing medicine for 50 years and acupuncture for 20. Its so treatable. Its a simple treatment.Ž One day, maybe, another index card will go up on his wall. Swings practice, Au-Heal, is located at 2400 Harbor Blvd., Suite 18, in Port Charlotte.

They also play an important role in the maintenance of our balance, Yet, as incredible as they are, the eyes can be abused to the point of becoming incapable of functioning adequately. For many people, age 50 and older, diseases such as AMD (agerelated macular degeneration) and cataracts are quite common. These diseases can lead to blindness. For over twenty “ve years, the Fusion One natural health system has used its eye healthŽ program to assist the general public. The program is holistic in its approach and is both safe and effective. At the heart of the program are the following four components: Positive eye maintenance behavior. Resting the eyes frequently when reading, watching television or using the computer would be an example of positive eye maintenance behavior. General health maintenance. Checking the health of the eyes regularly, getting adequate amounts of sleep, ensuring that blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal, not smoking, and exercising regularly are activities that would fall under general health maintenance. Eye health speci“c food selection. The main purpose of this component is to ensure that foods conducive to the health of the eyes are consumed regularly and in adequate amounts. Examples of such foods are: egg yolk; sweet potato and carrots; “sh such as sardines and salmon that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids; leafy greens such as kale and spinach and foods such as Brussels sprouts, oranges, kiwi and strawberries that are high in vitamin c. Eye Exercises. The Fusion One eye healthŽ program offers a vast number of exercises that are designed to rest, relax, strengthen and improve the functioning of the eyes. A good one to do when reading, watching television or using the computer is to, occasionally, look away and focus on an object 10 to 20 feet in the distance. Focus for about two minute, and then rest the eyes by closing them and covering them with the palms of the hands. Rest for about two minutes then resume your activity.

The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3PROVIDED BY WWW.WEBMD.COMThe American Cancer Society recommends that all women ages 35 to 39 have one baseline screening mammogram. All women 40 and older should get a yearly screening mammogram for as long as a woman is in good health. However, if you have a family history of cancer, any new breast problem or other high-risk factors, it may be recommended to start screening at an earlier age. For those who are scheduling their “rst mammogram, Highlands Today has compiled some information so that you know what to expect. BEFORE YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. Your doctor will place an order for your mammogram with a lab. Try to schedule the procedure during the point in your menstrual cycle when your breasts are the least tender. 2. You will not be able to wear deodorant or body powder or cream. Schedule an early morning test so you dont have to go all day without these necessities. Pack these items in your bag or purse so you can apply them after the procedure is over. 3. Be sure to specify whether you would prefer a male or female technician, or if you dont mind either way. 4. When getting dressed on the day of your mammogram, opt for pants or a skirt instead of a dress. Youll feel more comfortable dressed in your hospital gown if you have something to cover your bottom half. DURING YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. The mammography technician is a trained, licensed X-ray technician who will position your breasts correctly and operate the machinery. 2. Your technician will ask you a few questions „ your doctors name, your address, if you have any lumps in your breasts or have had breast surgery. If you have breast implants, let him or her know. 3. The technician might place stickers on your nipples and on any moles you may have on your breasts, so they are easier to identify in the “nal images. 4. Youll take the test standing up. The height of the machine will be adjusted so you can easily place your breast onto the shelfŽ of the machine. The technician will position your breast correctly as you lean in. 5. As the machine compresses your breast, youll be asked to hold your breath. Just like any other X-ray, it takes only a few seconds for the image to be captured. As soon as its captured, the machine will automatically release your breast. It might be uncomfortable, even a bit painful, but just know that it will last only a moment for each image. 6. A basic mammogram requires four images: one of each breast compressed from top to bottom and one of each breast compressed from side to side. The technician might take more if he or she sees a possible lump, or if the doctor has requested another angle. AFTER YOUR MAMMOGRAM 1. Once all the images are captured, youll be asked to head back to the waiting room. 2. Dont remove the gown just yet „ the technician may need to capture another shot or angle. He or she will let you know when you can get dressed and leave. 3. Your technician cannot discuss your test results with you. They will be sent to your doctor, who will reveal the results and let you know any next steps you might need to take.Your first mammogram ƒ What to expect fatigue is at its worst. But physical activity when symptoms are less severe can provide the energy boost cancer patients need along with all of the other bene“ts routine exercise provides. The NCI advises cancer patients to get their physicians approval before exercising during treatment. In addition, patients should let loved ones know when and where they are planning to exercise as a safety precaution. € Work from home. Going to work is another way for cancer patients to maintain some normalcy during their treatments. On days when treatment-related symptoms make it dif“cult to travel, men and women can work from home. Doing so will provide a sense of ful“llment at the end of the workday without having to navigate potentially taxing commutes to and from the of“ce. € Set goals. The NCI advises cancer patients to think about what they want to do when they feel well again. Setting goals can give patients in treatment something other than beating cancer to work toward. Planning an overseas trip or learning about a potential career change can focus patients on goals that do not involve their disease. Daily life during cancer treatment need not be vastly different from how it was prior to diagnosis. Some tweaks to patients typical routines may be necessary, but they can still live full lives as they work toward beating their disease.NORMALCYFROM PAGE 1 TNS PHOTOIt is recommended that all women ages 35 to 39 have one baseline screening mammogram.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCApproximately 39.6 percent of men and women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes, says the National Cancer Institute. The Canadian Cancer Society states that almost half of all Canadians will develop cancer. A cancer support team can help men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer “ght their disease and handle its side effects. Supportive family, friends and medical professionals can help many people cope with the emotional and physical effects of cancer.Counselors/ therapistsThe support of a mental health professional can help cancer patients cope with the psychological impact that their disease can have. Some therapists are specially trained to treat those diagnosed with cancer. Doctors may recommend that their patients seek help with managing the emotions that can arise after a cancer diagnosis, such as depression, anxiety and confusion.Oncology social workersCertain counselors help individuals better understand their health care system and options concerning treatment. Questions regarding how to pay for care and if insurance can cover it can be a major source of stress for those with longterm illnesses like cancer. These specialty social workers can help patients navigate the system and learn what to expect.Support groupsGroups offer support in various ways. Simply knowing there are others out there in similar situations can help individuals feel as though they are not alone in their “ght against cancer. Support groups can be as formal or informal as patients prefer. Such groups may simply be a group of friends who gather regularly to chat. However, there are some organizations designed specifically to provide support for cancer patients. Peer-led groups are facilitated by group members. Professionally-led groups are typically overseen by a trained medical professional. Groups may meet in person or be available through online social networks. Some support groups may be designed for speci“c people, including the relatives of people with cancer, spouses, people of certain age groups, and any combination thereof.Medical staffQuali“ed and compassionate oncologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, nurses, and others can make cancer treatment a little easier to swallow.

Back to the bag he went, removing a small branch from some sort of evergreen tree. Ever heard of Taxol?Ž he asked, and when I meekly nodded, he went on: Its the most the most well-known natural-source cancer drug in the United States and is on the World Health Organizations List of Essential Medicines, which includes the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system? Then, holding he twig aloft as if presenting the “nal piece of damming evidence to the judge and jury, he proclaimed, It comes from this! The bark of the Paci“c yew.Ž Case dismissed,Ž I almost shouted, but listened instead as the doctor explained that the chemotherapy medication is used to treat ovarian cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer, pancreatic cancer and more. Next from the bag came a thin stalk of bamboo with several stems shooting out and sporting green leaves and little yellow ”owers. This is curare,Ž he announced, or I should say, this is where curare comes from, one of a number of South American plants whose bark and stems produce a poison plant extract that paralyzes the motor nerves. It was traditionally used by some indigenous peoples to poison their arrows and blowpipe darts.Ž Physicians use drugs derived from or inspired by curare-like drugs to relax muscles when correcting dislocations or setting bone fractures, noted Dr. Johnson. These drugs also help control muscle spasms during convulsions associated with tetanus, epilepsy, drug overdose and following black widow spider bites. In addition, they are used during tracheal intubation and help make examinations of the larynx, bronchial tubes, and esophagus easier. At any given time, the FDA and the drug companies are studying thousands of folk and natural remedies for pharmacological properties,Ž said the doctor, reaching into his bag and lifting out wooden box by a handle on top. The box was about a foot long and four inches high, with several quarter-sized holes drilled along the top edges. He set the box on the ”oor and removed a pair of heavy leather gloves from his bags. What now?Ž I wondered aloud. Wait and see,Ž Dr. Johnson replied. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 PROVIDED BY MCCThe United Nations estimates that the world is home to 7.6 billion people. None of those people, regardless of their ethnicity, race or gender, are immune to cancer. According to the World Health Organization, cancer is the second-leading cause of death across the globe. Responsible for nearly nine million deaths in 2015, cancer is a formidable foe but one that can be defeated. For example, the SEER Cancer Statistics Review released in spring of 2018 indicated that cancer death rates among women decreased by 1.4 percent between 2006 and 2015. Even more encouraging is the decline in breast cancer death rates, which the American Cancer Society says decreased by 39 percent between 1989 and 2015. Various factors have contributed to the decline in cancer death rates. While advancements in treatment protocols and education programs that have emphasized the importance of cancer screenings have had profound impacts, individuals avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices also has made a difference in reversing cancer death rates. Research into cancer prevention is ongoing, but the following are some healthy lifestyle choices that may help people reduce their cancer risk. € Avoid tobacco. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that cigarette smoking kills almost half a million people in America alone each year. Nearly 10 percent of those deaths occur due to exposure to secondhand smoke. Lung cancer is not the only type of cancer that smoking has been linked to, as the Mayo Clinic notes smoking also has been connected to cancers of the mouth, throat, larynx, pancreas, bladder, cervix, and kidney. By avoiding or quitting tobacco, men and women can reduce their own cancer risk and reduce the likelihood that their nonsmoking loved ones will develop cancer related to secondhand smoke. € Eat right. The WHO notes that many countries have implemented programs encouraging the consumption of “ve or more portions of fruits and vegetables per day. Those programs are a result of studies showing the potential relationship between a healthy diet and a reduced risk of cancer. For example, the National Cancer Institute says studies conducted on animals have shown that antioxidants, which can be found in various fruits and vegetables, can prevent the type of cell damage associated with the development of cancer. € Protect skin from the sun. In 2018, the American Cancer Society notes that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer in the United States each year than all other cancers combined. While overexposure to the sun is not the only way a person can develop skin cancer, protecting skin from the sun is a great way for people to signi“cantly reduce their risk for the disease. The Mayo Clinic recommends people avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m, when the sun's rays are strongest. People also should apply and reapply generous amounts of sunscreen when spending time outdoors. € Speak with a physician about immunizations. The Mayo Clinic notes that protecting oneself against certain viral infections also may help men and women reduce their cancer risk. For example, hepatitis B has been linked to liver cancer. Certain people, including those who are sexually active but not monogamous, intravenous drug users and health care or public safety workers who may be exposed to infected blood or body ”uids, are at greater risk of hepatitis B than others, and such people should speak with their physicians about being vaccinated. Cancer can affect both healthy and unhealthy people. But certain cancer prevention strategies may help men and women lower their cancer risk. nts of sunscreen when spending time outdoors.Lifestyle choices that can decrease cancer risk PHOTO PROVIDEDWhile advancements in treatment protocols and education programs that have emphasized the importance of cancer screenings have had profound impacts, individuals avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices also has made a dierence in reversing cancer death rates. Research into cancer prevention is ongoing, but the following are some healthy lifestyle choices that may help people reduce their cancer risk. PROVIDED BY MCCWhile the vast majority of breast cancer diagnoses involve women, men are not immune to the disease. According to the American Cancer Society, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about one in 1,000 among men in the United States. By comparison, the risk for women in the United States is one in eight. While a mans risk for breast cancer is considerably lower than a womans, the ACS still estimates that roughly 480 men will die from breast cancer in 2018, when more than 2,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men. In addition, the ACS notes that black men diagnosed with breast cancer tend to have a worse prognosis than white men. Though breast cancer may be a disease widely associated with women, men should not hesitate to report any discomfort to their physicians, as the National Cancer Institute notes that men are often diagnosed with breast cancer at a later stage than women. The ACS suggests that men may be less likely to report symptoms, thereby leading to delays in diagnosis. The more advanced the cancer is at the time of diagnosis, the lower the patients survival rate. Men are urged to report any discomfort or abnormalities in their chests to their physicians immediately.Men are not immune to breast cancerPROVIDED BY MCCThe well-known breast cancer advocacy and research group Susan G. Komen indicates that, according to the most recent data available, 1.7 million new cases of breast cancer occurred among women worldwide in 2012. Western Europe, North America and northern Europe have the highest breast cancer incidences in the world, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the World Health Organization. Women diagnosed with breast cancer may want to begin their treatment journeys by educating themselves on the anatomy of the breast so they can better understand their disease and how it develops. The structure of the breast is complex and comprised of fat, glandular tissue, connective tissue, lobes, lobules, ducts, lymph nodes, blood vessels, and ligaments. The following is a breakdown of the common components of the breast. € Fat cells: The female breast is largely fat cells called adipose tissue. This tissue extends from the collarbone down to the underarm and across to the middle of the rib cage. The main purpose of adipose tissue is to store energy in the form of fat and insulate the body. € Lobules: Each breast contains several sections that branch out from the nipple. Lobule glands make milk and are often grouped together to form lobes. There may be between 15 and 20 lobes in each breast, says the Cleveland Clinic. Each lobe has roughly 20 to 40 lobules. € Ducts: Connecting the lobules are small tubes called ducts. The ducts carry milk to the nipples of the breasts. There are around 10 duct systems in each breast, each with its own opening at the nipple. € Nipple: The nipple may be the most recognizeable part of the breast. It is in the center of the breast. The lobules will squeeze milk into the ducts, which then transfer it to the nipples. Most nipples protrude outward, but according to Health magazines medical editor Roshini Rajapaksa, MD, some women have ”at or inverted nipples. The nipples do not have a singular hole for the milk to come out like an arti“cial bottle nipple. Rather, there are many lactiferous duct outlets in each nipple that correspond to the ducts in each breast. € Lymph system: Snaking through the adipose tissue are lymph vessels and nodes. The lymph system distributes disease-“ghting cells and ”uids as part of the immune system, states the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. Beanshaped lymph nodes in “xed areas through the system “lter abnormal cells away from healthy tissue. € Areola: The areola is pigmented skin surrounding a nipple. The areola contains tubercles called Montgomerys glands, which secrete lubricating materials to make breastfeeding more comfortable. Changes in any areas of the breast may be indicative of cancer. That is why women are urged to understand their breasts normalŽ appearance and feel so they can recognize any changes and address them with a doctor right away.Learning breast anatomy is important for health Find it in the CLASSIFIEDS!

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCWhen receiving treatment for breast cancer, women will learn about cancer staging. According to the nonpro“t organization Breastcancer. org, determining the stage of the cancer helps patients and their doctors “gure out the prognosis, develop a treatment plan and even decide if clinical trials are a valid option. Typically expressed as a number on a scale of 0 through IV, breast cancer stage is determined after careful consideration of a host of factors. The staging system, sometimes referred to as the TNM system, is overseen by the American Joint Committee on Cancer and ensures that all instances of breast cancer are described in a uniform way. This helps to compare treatment results and gives doctors and patients a better understanding of breast cancer and the ways to treat it. Breastcancer.org notes that the TNM system was updated in 2018, but before then was based on three clinical characteristics: T: the size of the tumor and whether or not it has grown into nearby tissue N: whether the cancer is present in the lymph nodes M: whether the cancer has metastasized, or spread to others parts of the body beyond the breast While each of those factors is still considered when determining breast cancer stage, starting in 2018, the AJCC added additional characteristics to its staging guidelines, which make staging more complex but also more accurate. € Tumor grade: This is a measurement of how much the cancer cells look like normal cells. € Estrogenand progesterone-receptor status: This indicates if the cancer cells have receptors for the hormones estrogen and progesterone. If cancer cells are deemed estrogen-receptorpositive, then they may receive signals from estrogen that promote their growth. Similarly, those deemed progesterone-receptorpositive may receive signals from progesterone that could promote their growth. Testing for hormone receptors, which roughly two out of three breast cancers are positive for, helps doctors determine if the cancer will respond to hormonal therapy or other treatments. Hormonereceptor-positive cancers may be treatable with medications that reduce hormone production or block hormones from supporting the growth and function of cancer cells. € HER2 status: This helps doctors determine if the cancer cells are making too much of the HER2 protein. HER2 proteins are receptors on breast cells made by the HER2 gene. In about 25 percent of breast cancers, the HER2 gene makes too many copies of itself, and these extra genes ultimately make breast cells grow and divide in ways that are uncontrollable. HER2positive breast cancers are more likely to spread and return than those that are HER2-negative. € Oncotype DX score: The oncotype DX score helps doctors determine a womans risk of early-stage, estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer recurring and how likely she is to bene“t from post-surgery chemotherapy. In addition, the score helps doctors “gure out if a woman is at risk of ductal carcinoma in situ recurring and/or at risk for a new invasive cancer developing in the same breast. The score also helps doctors “gure out if such women will bene“t from radiation therapy or DCIS surgery. Determining breast cancer stage is a complex process, but one that can help doctors develop the most effective course of treatment. More information is available at www. breastcancer.org.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 By JOYCE M. ROSENBERGAP BUSINESS WRITERNEW YORK „ All seemed to be going well with Randolph Rices new receptionist. She asked for more responsibilities and got them, and said she was happy. Then, two months into the job at Rices law office, she didnt show up for work or call in sick. Rice tried to reach her, but got no response. Hed been ghosted: The receptionist ended the work relationship in much the same way many people end romantic associations, without a text, email, or call. Phones and the internet have created less of a bond between individuals,Ž says Rice, who practices in Baltimore. Connections are so easy to cut off, so, why not do it for a job?Ž While most people do give notice if they intend to leave, ghosting is becoming more common. Small business owners and human resources professionals say it happens with staffers of any age and tenure, but is more likely among younger employees whose dependence on texts and chats can make them less experienced with tough conversations. Many deal with uncomfortable situations by just cutting off communication. HR pros recommend that rather than dismiss ghosting as the result of bad manners or awkwardness, owners improve communication and deal with any problems that made workers quit. Rice did some soul-searching to see if he had missed any clues. He discovered that the extra work his receptionist asked for was never completed. He also saw on social media that she had a new job as a server in a bar. He believes she was unhappy despite what she said, but hes still mystified. Maybe she woke up one day and said, Im done,Ž he says. The ghosting cases follow a trend toward no-shows at job interviews that began when companies resumed hiring after the Great Recession. Jodi Chavez, president of the recruiting firm Randstad Professionals, says some candidates felt that hiring managers were cavalier during the recession, not responding to resume submissions, emails and calls. Theyre now acting the same way. And that recession-era approach is still a factor, says Pete Davis, president of recruiter Impact Management Services. Employers still have the attitude, or are behaving like they do, that people should be lucky to have a paycheck,Ž Davis says. He suggests owners give younger staffers the work environment they seek „ one that appreciates them, their work and their needs „ or expect more to quit and more to ghost. The low unemployment rate and big demand for help makes staffers feel more empowered to just leave, Chavez says. Theres an abundance of job openings. They have more choices,Ž she says. Ghosting may also result from the disparity between the way bosses and staffers communicate, Chavez says. Owners or managers may prefer to talk while staffers are more comfortable with texting and online chats. She suggests owners help younger staffers see that learning to communicate faceto-face will help them build skills that theyll need. They should have regular conversations with employees so they feel comfortable with the relationship and so theyre not as tempted to ghost,Ž she says. Josh Rubin realized he needed to improve communication with his marketing firms staffers when an employee who worked for him for about a year didnt show up one day, didnt call and never came back. She didnt even respond when he emailed to say he needed to send a final paycheck to her. Rubin, owner of Post Modern Marketing in Sacramento, California, asked other staffers if they knew of any problems. And they did: A client had been abusive to the employee. Rubin realized she wanted to avoid confrontation and found it easier to leave without a word. Since then, Rubin says hes tried to be more approachable and encourages staffers to speak up when theres a problem. Bret Bonnet was ghosted on what would have been an employees first day of work, just hours after the wouldbe staffer texted him, See you tomorrow, boss man!Ž The man had already done all the paperwork for a $90,000 job at Quality Logo Products, a Chicago company that makes water bottles, pens and other promotional products. Hed even spent time on Skype to help the company set up a new laptop for him. But on that day, there was no staffer and no answers to calls, texts or Facebook messages. To this day we have never heard from him. Im not sure why anyone would invest so much of their own time/effort only to ghost us at the last minute,Ž Bonnet says. Ghostings may involve complex emotions. Roy Cohen, a career coach in New York, has clients who felt a sense of failure or shame about their work they couldnt share with bosses. They then ghosted. One was angry and wanted to get revenge by ghosting. Cohen has warned them not to ghost again. It will catch up with them,Ž he says. Sometimes there are warning signs, like work that isnt completed or falls short. Chris Yoko recalls a staffer at his website design company who telecommuted, missed a deadline and turned in incomplete work a few days later. When Yoko and his project manager tried to reach the employee, there was radio silence „ with a strange twist. The man went so far as to have a friend call us and say he had died, and ask for tax documents to be sent to an updated address,Ž says Yoko, owner of McLean, Virginia-based Yoko Inc. Yoko wanted to send flowers, searched for an online obituary and found none. He did find that the former staffer had posted on Twitter that day. The ex-staffer finally emailed a few weeks later and said, Sorry, I had to move.Ž Yoko responded, hoping for answers. I asked, Why did all of this unfold this way? Did you feel this was the only way to handle it? But as you can imagine, I never heard back.ŽHere today, ghosting tomorrow, workers just disappearWhile most people give notice before quitting a job, ghosting is becoming more commonJOBS A Perfect Pairing WINE & FASHION SHOW6 TH ANNUAL The Hills Restaurant Rotonda Golf & Country Club 100 Rotonda Circle A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT Chance & Silent Auctions Mary Kay Cosmetics Dee Dee Quinn Makeup Clothing & Accessories Ivys On Dearborn Karen Tyree Hair Head Hunters Salon & Spa Marie Elena Bronson THURSDAY OCT 11, 2018 PM Reserve your seat or Information: Mary Jo Claudius 941.662.8598MaryJo.Claudius@MSCMortgage.comtable of 8 today!

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018JOBS By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ After years of sluggish pay gains, the economy may be starting to work for Americas low-wage workers. Amazons announcement Tuesday that it will raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour will intensify pressure on other companies to lift their pay levels as well. Among the most likely to do so: Amazons rival retailers and warehouse operators, many of which are facing the prospect of staff shortages as they ramp up for the holiday shopping season. This is going to be a big deal for very lowwage workers,Ž said Ben Zipperer, an economist at the liberal Economic Policy Institute. Its going to compel other businesses to raise wages as well.Ž Low-wage workers typically receive higher pay from an expanding economy only after higher-income people have bene“ted, economists note. Now, with the unemployment rate near a 50-year low and the number of job openings exceeding the number of unemployed, more lower-income Americans are “nally receiving meaningful raises. Low-paid workers get kicked the most in the recession, and they generally bene“t more later in the boom,Ž said David Neumark, an economist at University of California, Irvine. Accordingly, retailers, who employ a sizable share of the nations lower-paid workers, have been stepping up pay increases. Average hourly wages for retail workers, excluding managers, rose 4 percent in August compared with 12 months earlier. Amazons announcement will likely embolden labor activists and unions that have been pressing large fastfood and retail chains to raise pay, provide more reliable work schedules, and allow for union representation. Among the critics Amazon has faced over its pay and work conditions, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has noted that some of its workers receive food stamps and other bene“ts that are geared for the poor, while its owner Jeff Bezos has become the worlds wealthiest person. Now that activists have succeeded, they can now take that demand to other employers,Ž said Marshall Steinbaum, a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute. You say you cant afford this, but your competitor obviously can.Ž Indeed, shares of retail companies fell sharply Tuesday in a sign that investors expect them to have to raise pay to compete with Amazon, a step that would potentially slow their pro“ts. Best Buys share price dropped nearly 5 percent; Kohls Stores fell 3.9 percent. Amazon, the worlds largest online retailer, also said Tuesday that it will lobby to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour, though it did not say what “gure it would push for. The impact of a higher federal wage, though, would likely be modest, because more than 20 states have minimum wages above the federal level. A higher federal minimum wage could intensify pressures on smaller businesses that dont have the “nancial resources that Amazon has to raise pay signi“cantly. Historically, large companies have been a driving factor in pushing up the minimum wage, Steinbaum said. Once they start to raise pay in response to competitive forces, they typically lobby to push others to follow suit, to prevent other companies from undercutting them. Darren Moscato, who owns an Express staf“ng agency in Buffalo, New York, where Amazon has built a warehouse, said the higher pay offered by Amazon will make it harder for local businesses to compete for workers.Ž Moscato noted that smaller companies typically spend more on labor than does Amazon, which uses more automation. This is why Amazon is also pushing for a higher national minimum wage,Ž Moscato said. It will give them a competitive advantage.Ž Other retailers and shipping companies are likely to feel the brunt of Amazons decision as well, analysts said. The pay increases would apply to about 100,000 Amazon seasonal workers. Thats equal to roughly 16 percent of the 623,800 retail jobs that the economy added in October and November last year. Weve already seen just how much pressure there is „ I think this is only going to increase it,Ž said Judy Conti, director of government affairs at the National Employment Law Project. An advocate for higher minimum wages, Conti added that Amazon would likely benefit if $15 an hour became the new baseline. Any small businesses that compete with larger companies by providing better service rather than by matching every price cut should also manage fine, she said. Companies like UPS, FedEx and XPO Logistics typically hire tens of thousands of seasonal workers to meet the crushing demands of online shopping during the winter holidays. Amazon plans to add 100,000, many of them at the higher $15 wage, which takes effect Nov. 1. The crisis in warehouse and shipping personnel is very real, and theres going to have to be a meaningful increase in wages to attract and increase talent,Ž said Steve Barr, consumer markets leader at PwC. Iesha Townsend, who works as a McDonalds cashier in Chicago, said she hopes other companies follow suit. Townsend, 32, plans to demonstrate for higher pay on Thursday as part of the Fight for $15 movement. Why shouldnt we get it too?Ž she said, referring to Amazons raise. We work so hard, and we get less.ŽRipple effect? Amazons $15 wage may help lift pay elsewhere AP PHOTOWorkers prepare to move products at an Amazon ful“llment center in Baltimore. Amazons announcement Tuesday, that it will raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour will intensify the pressure on other companies to also lift their pay levels, particularly retailers and warehouse operators that are looking to sta up for the holidays. By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. businesses added a robust 230,000 jobs in September, a private survey found, a sign that strong economic growth is spurring companies to add more workers. Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that Septembers job gain was the most in seven months. It followed 168,000 new jobs in August, a figure that was revised slightly higher. Hiring was strong across most major industries. Construction firms added 34,000 jobs, while professional and business services, which includes higher-paying jobs such as engineering and accounting as well as temp workers, added a strong 70,000. Education and health services added 44,000 jobs. ADPs report comes two days before the government releases jobs data for September. Economists believe Fridays report will show that employers added 183,000 jobs, according to data provider FactSet. The labor market continues to impress,Ž Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president of the ADP Research Institute, said. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, which helps compile the data, said Hurricane Florence likely had little effect on the figures. Thats because ADP counts someone as employed even if they miss work because of bad weather. The governments jobs data, however, counts someone as employed only if they were paid during the period when the government conducts its jobs survey. Zandi estimates that the storm could reduce Fridays figure by about 25,000. Consumers are confident and businesses are spending more, pushing growth to 4.2 percent at an annual rate in the April-June quarter, the best in four years. Analysts forecast that growth could reach nearly 3.5 percent in the current quarter.Survey: US companies added a healthy 230,000 jobs last month AP PHOTO Chad Beutler, of First Data, right, talks with applicants at a job fair hosted by Job News South Florida, in Sunrise, Fla.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS Banksy artwork self-destructs just after $1.4 million auction saleSee page 3 Sunday, October 7, 2018 By ALAN FRAM, LISA MASCARO and MATTHEW DALYASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday night as the 114th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, after a wrenching debate over sexual misconduct and judicial temperament that shattered the Senate, captivated the nation and ushered in an acrimonious new level of polarization „ now encroaching on the court that the 53-year-old judge may well swing rightward for decades to come. Even as Kavanaugh took his oath of of“ ce in a quiet private ceremony, not long after the narrowest Senate con“ rmation in nearly a century and a half, protesters chanted outside the court building across the street from the Capitol. The climactic 50-48 roll call capped a “ ght that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that he had sexually assaulted women three decades ago „ allegations he emphatically denied. Those accusations transformed the clash from a routine struggle over judicial ideology into an angry jumble of questions about victims rights, the presumption of innocence and personal attacks on nominees. His con“ rmation provides a de“ ning accomplishment for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, which found a unifying force in the cause of putting a new conservative majority on the court. Before the sexual accusations grabbed the Senates and the nations attention, Democrats had argued that Kavanaughs rulings and writings as an appeals court judge had raised serious concerns about his views on abortion rights and a presidents right to bat away legal probes. Trump, ” ying to Kansas for a political rally, ” ashed a thumbsup gesture when the tally was announced and praised Kavanaugh for being able to withstand this horrible, horrible attack by the Democrats.Ž He later telephoned his congratulations to the new justice, then at the rally returned to his own attack on the Democrats as an angry left-wing mob.Ž Like Trump, senators at the Capitol predicted voters would react strongly by defeating the other partys candidates in next months congressional elections. Its turned our base on “ re,Ž declared Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. But Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York forecast gains for his party instead: Change must come from where change in America always begins: the ballot box.Ž The justices themselves made a quiet show of solidarity. Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and the man hes replacing, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, as fellow Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan looked on „ two conservatives and two liberals. Still, Kagan noted the night before that Kennedy has been a person who found the centerŽ and its not so clear well have that now. Noisy to the end, the Senate battle featured a call of the roll that was interrupted several times by protesters shouting in the spectators gallery before Capitol Police removed them. Vice President Mike Pence presided, his potential tie-breaking vote unnecessary. Trump has now put his stamp on the court with his second justice in as many years. Yet Kavanaugh is joining under a cloud. Accusations from several women remain under scrutiny, and House Democrats have pledged further investigation if they win the majority in November. Outside groups are culling an unusually long paper trail from his previous government and political work, with the National Archives and Records Administration expected to release a cache of millions of documents later this month. Kavanaugh, a father of two, strenuously denied the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford, who says he sexually assaulted her when they were teens. An appellate court judge on the District of Columbia circuit for the past 12 years, he pushed for the Senate vote as hard as Republican leaders „ not just to reach this capstone of his legal career, but in “ ghting to clear his name After Fords allegations, Democrats and their allies became engaged as seldom before, though there were obvious echoes of Thomas combative con“ rmation over the sexual harassment accusations of Anita Hill, who worked for him at two federal agencies. Protesters began swarming Capitol Hill, creating a tense, confrontational atmosphere that put Capitol Police on edge. As exhausted senators prepared for Saturdays vote, some were ” anked by security guards.

By DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSCAIRO „ It took Melania Trumps “ rst big solo international trip for her to show a different side of herself „ a playful, less serious one. And while she generously dished out warm smiles and happy waves, the “ rst lady also used her four-nation tour of Africa to draw some “ rmer boundaries between her own views and those of her husband the president. I dont always agree with what he says and I tell him that,Ž the “ rst lady told reporters Saturday against the backdrop of the Great Sphinx before she headed back to Washington. But I have my own voice and my own opinions and its very important for me that I express what I feel.Ž The U.S. “ rst lady hopscotched across Africa without President Donald Trump, commanding a spotlight that was hers alone. In doing her own thing, the very private “ rst lady essentially peeled back the curtain ever so slightly as she wiped away the serious face she wears around Washington. She demonstrated her independence from her husband in ways large and small „ like talking up U.S. foreign aid that hes tried to slash and ignoring the Fox-only edict that the president imposes on TV screens when hes aboard Air Force One. The “ rst lady also did a few things shes never done before, like wave to journalists as she boarded a U.S. government aircraft for the grueling “ ve-day tour across multiple time zones. With big smiles on her face „ sometimes paired with the unfamiliar sound of her laughter „ she cuddled babies and bottle-fed young elephants.Melania Trump puts on happier face during Africa tour AP PHOTOFirst lady Melania Trump walks with children as she visits the Nest Orphanage in Limuru, Kenya, Friday.

The Food and Drug Administration approved Gardasil 9 for women and men through 45. The vaccine protects against the human papilloma virus „ or HPV „ which can cause cervical cancer, certain other cancers and genital warts. The virus is very common and is spread through sex. In most cases, HPV doesnt cause any problems, but some infections persist and eventually lead to cancer. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates about 14 million people become newly infected with HPV each year, mostly teens and young adults.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018Dear Mr. Berko: Last year, our handsome 31-year-old son “nished his bachelors degree from the University of Florida with a specialty in biology and ecology. Were so proud of him! He got a job down here in Florida at $38,000 a year, which is the most he could get. He loves his job because it keeps him outside and he gets to help animals. His problem is the student loan he took out. It totals $93,000, and now the lender is telling him that he has to pay $720 a month. He cant afford that because he has auto payments and motorcycle payments (including insurance) of $1,305 a month. He owes $16,200 on four credit cards, which hes paying off at $525 monthly. He also borrowed $6,500 from his sister several years ago, as well as $6,500 from us. And we know he owes at least $7,000 to various friends. Now his sister wants him to begin paying her back, but he cant. He is behind on his rent and doesnt have enough money for food, gas and utilities, and debt collectors are hounding him every day. My husband and I are thinking of letting him come back in our home. We could pay off all his debt, and he could pay everyone back after getting back on his feet. Considering your tremendous experience and knowledge, is there any advice you can give us? „ SS, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Dear SS: Yes! First piece of advice: Before you decide to give your kid a nickel, visit with a lawyer and draft an agreement of terms and restrictions concerning his occupation of your home. This agreement is more important to your personal welfare than the money you may lend him. That kid is a debt addict. So my second piece of advice is not to give him a Pakistani penny. If he were my son, I wouldnt let him sleep one night in my home even if the mob were after him. Once he would get a bed, youd never have any privacy. Hes proved that hes a “nancial stupid. Like a drug addict, he needs to hit bottom and grovel in the gutter till he sees the light. I feel like the proverbial doctor who is reluctant to give bad news to a spouse, but unless your son marries a stout heiress with a room temperature IQ or knows how to drive a fast boat from Barranquilla to the Keys, hes going to be part of lifes growing number of people whom Hillary Clinton calls deplorables. Im giving you the straight skinny. You and the University of Florida failed that kid. You failed him because you taught him bupkis about addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. And the university failed him because it accepted him as a student even though he wasnt quali“ed. In my opinion, your son and probably half of the other students who were admitted to UF should not have been admitted. Running a college is like running a business. College costs continue to rise, primarily because of lousy management practices. Therefore, colleges must continue to enroll more substandard students. They need more cash ”ow to fund their numerous activities and dumb and silly courses and pay for festering bureaucracies (intentionally bloated) to give observers the appearance of industry. Its a Catch-44, which is twice as bad as a Catch-22. There are 16 million students enrolled in colleges across the country today, some 40 percent of whom wont make it and may “nd themselves stuck in dumb-end jobs. And of the 70 percent of high school graduates enrolling in college this year, half would have been better off if theyd have joined the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines. And the country would have been, too.

Gillum began his political career as a student at the historically black university and he returned home Saturday as Floridas “rst black nominee for governor. The Democrat was given a heros welcome as he walked the homecoming parade with his wife R. Jai and their children. The crowd roared as he bounced to each side of the street as campaign volunteers tossed candy to children along the route. He hugged supporters, held children and posed for sel“es „ lots of sel“es. And the history he could make if he wins in November wasnt lost on the crowd. Youre going to do it!Ž exclaimed 49-year-old Latreva Stallworth, sitting with her granddaughter on her lap as Gillum greeted her. Im praying, Baby! Im praying! Yes, Lord.Ž Gillum was 23 when he became the youngest person elected to Tallahassees city commission while attending Florida A&M in 2003. He decided to run after organizing a protest over a local rooming house ordinance that said no more than three unrelated students could live in a building. He remembers after he and other students gave their argument, a commissioner made a joke that students were like houseguests. We like to have you come, but we cant wait to see you go,Ž Gillum recalled the commissioner saying, prompting laughter from the other of“cials. It just sort of pricked me, and I thought, You know what? Im running for city commission,Ž said Gillum, now 39. I remember it like it was yesterday. Our slogan was A chance.Ž Gillum, now Tallahassees mayor, shocked political observers when he won the Aug. 28 primary for governor. He was far outspent by his opponents and had the least presence on television. Hes now facing former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis for the seat Republican Gov. Rick Scott is leaving after two terms. Since Gillums primary victory his campaign has built an enthusiasm around the state. But Saturdays event was even more special for Florida A&M students and alumni. Stallworth beamed as she talked to Gillum, and later said that his nomination reminded her of when Barack Obama was elected the “rst black president. Its just echoing what happened in history with President Obama,Ž she said. Its the same feeling, almost as if, here it is again „ our people. But not only just our people, but for all people.Ž Gillum is aware of the history he can make, but hes sometimes reluctant to talk about it. We try to keep it in perspective about what this moment is. I understand the signi“cance of the historical part, but what I also understand is what it means for all the issues that were talking about „ Medicaid expansion, health care, paying teachers what theyre worth and so on and so forth. All that matters,Ž he said as he walked the parade Its a parade hes watched as a student and marched in as a Tallahassee politician, but this time the energy was amped up now that hes one step away from being governor. I feel like Im home,Ž he said. I think they own this campaign, and thats what I want them to know.Ž Hes also learned some lessons from past parades. Before he began walking he had advice for his team. You know the deal with the candy,Ž he said. By the time you get to the center, if youre out, you get booed.ŽHomecoming parade has new significance for Andrew Gillum AP PHOTOSAndrew Gillum walks with his wife, R.

A Polk County Sheriffs Of“ce news release says 53-year-old James Royal Patrick Jr. was arrested Wednesday and charged with making written threats to kill or injure. Investigators say they received an email tip Wednesday morning about threatening posts Patrick made on this Facebook page last month. Besides threatening Democrats and weak RepublicansŽ who might oppose Kavanaugh, Patrick also encouraged conservatives to break into liberals homes and kill them in their sleep. Deputies say they found a ri”e and handgun during a search of Patricks Winter Haven home. Investigators say Patrick admitted to making the Facebook posts but denied plans to carry out the threats.

The Tampa Bay Times reports federal auditors also served notice to Gov. Rick Scotts Department of Economic Opportunity that they are further examining whether the agency has adequate safeguards in place to protect millions in federal tax dollars it doles out to Floridas job placement centers. The shift to a criminal investigation locally comes months after the newspaper published a series of reports questioning whether CareerSource Pinellas and CareerSource Tampa Bay in Hillsborough County took credit for “nding jobs for people who never sought their help.Dump truck driver dies after being hit by trainPORT ST. LUCIE (AP) „ Authorities say a dump trucker driver was found dead in a canal a day after being hit by a train in Florida. Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that 53-year-old Oslavio Morales was found Friday morning in a rural area west of Port St. Lucie. Florida Highway Patrol says Morales was hauling dirt over a set of tracks Thursday afternoon when a train hit the side of the truck and knocked it into the canal.

The af“davit says after Walker helped the trainee, he demanded a sex act and reached into the trainees underwear and sexually battered him. When the trainee resisted, Walker went to lock the residence, giving the trainee time to text a friend. Concerned that someone knew what was happening, Walker let the trainee go. Court records show Walker was in jail Saturday and couldnt be reached for comment. He told investigators he touched the trainee as a joke and only outside his pants.Officer charged with selling drugs out of squad carBONIFAY (AP) „ Authorities say a police of“cer from a small town in the Florida Panhandle faces charges he sold opioids out of his squad car while in uniform.

Agents say they made a controlled purchase of opioid tablets from White, who was selling the drugs out of his marked patrol car while in uniform. Agents also say he used her personal cell phone for sales. White is charged with selling a controlled substance and unlawful use of a two-way communications device. Online records show he was being held in jail and couldnt be reached for comment. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATESTATE NEWS

As Dr. Denis Mukwege describes to the world how he stays in his hospital, protected by United Nations peacekeepers, to avoid further attempts on his life, teams of health workers not far away in eastern Congo feel an uncomfortable kinship as they combat Ebola amid the daily ring of gun“re. War in the vast region once had the aim of trying to unseat a president, or hunt down those suspected of genocide in neighboring Rwanda, or simply claim a piece of Congos trillions of dollars in mineral wealth. Now the con”ict has splintered, with dozens of rebel groups traumatizing a population that sometimes has little idea who is behind a deadly attack. That chaos has brought a steady, horri“c ”ow of women, girls and even babies into Mukweges hospital as he operates day by day on survivors of the harshest kinds of sexual violence. Women and girls are raped with the barrels of guns. Their genitals are shot or burned. The new documentary City of JoyŽ focuses on the survivors and on Mukweges work. Trauma can beget trauma, and the emergence in August of the Ebola virus in the jittery region for the “rst time has posed the kind of challenge many health workers have never seen before. So far 140 Ebola cases have been con“rmed including 76 deaths. Fears and rumors about the virus have spread as quickly as outreach teams can refute them. Some health workers, confronted by angry families or communities, have been attacked as they try to carry out vaccinations or promote safe burials. The virus is spread via the bodily ”uids of those infected, including the dead. Some suspected of having contact with Ebola victims have ”ed. The World Health Organization worries openly about the virus spreading into red zonesŽ where the rebel threat is so high that carrying out health work is almost impossible. The threat of attack means Ebola efforts are limited to daylight hours as teams and their armed escorts, usually U.N. peacekeepers but also Congolese security forces, hurry to get off the roads before dark. That is very unlike other outbreaks,Ž Rimoin told The Associated Press. With communities already traumatized by decades of con”ict,Ž the presence of armed escorts can bring further anxiety. Meanwhile, local authorities who have had contact with rebel groups in previous efforts such as routine vaccination campaigns are negotiating with the “ghters for urgent access, as any Ebola victim left untracked could cause a new round of cases. Alarm about the insecurity has grown. Last week after Red Cross workers were attacked and badly hurt, the U.N. Security Council called for an end to hostilities as it prepared to visit Congo and discuss, among other things, the “ghting that has displaced about 1 million people in the Ebola-affected North Kivu province alone. An extremely challenging and dangerous environment,Ž WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the council, describing the attacks since the outbreak began: a full-scaleŽ assault on a Congolese military base, ambushes of U.N. peacekeepers, a rocket explosion and an attack on the town at the center of Ebola efforts that killed at least 18 people and shut down health work for days. Fridays announcement of the Nobel prize, the “rst in Congos history, brought a burst of jubilation and tears in Panzi hospital as Mukwege was “nishing his second operation of the day. Hallelujah,Ž people said, as medical workers in scrubs danced and women wiped their eyes.Congos conflict makes fighting Ebola, sexual violence risky NORWEGIAN CHURCH AID VIA APDenis Mukwege, center, celebrates with his sta after learning he has been awarded the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, at the Panzi hospital in Bukavu, eastern Congo, Friday.

By JOHN LEICESTERASSOCIATED PRESSPARIS „ Interpol said Saturday it has made a formal request to China for information about the agencys missing president, a senior Chinese security of“cial who seemingly vanished while on a trip home. The Lyon-based international police agency said it used law enforcement channels to submit its request to China about the status of Meng Hongwei. Its statement said the agency looks forward to an of“cial response from Chinas authorities to address concerns over the presidents well-being,Ž China, in the midst of a weeklong holiday, has yet to comment on the 64-year-old security of“cials disappearance. Calls and faxed questions to the foreign and public security ministries went unanswered. Mengs wife says she hasnt heard from him since he left the French city of Lyon at the end of September. France has launched its own investigation. French authorities say he boarded a plane and arrived in China but his subsequent whereabouts are unknown. In addition to his Interpol post, Meng is also a vice minister for public security in China. Previously, Interpol had said that reports about Mengs disappearance were a matter for the relevant authorities in both France and China.Ž The South China Morning Post, a Hong Kong newspaper, has suggested that Meng may have been the latest target of an ongoing campaign against corruption in China. His duties in China would have put him in close proximity to former leaders, some who fell afoul of President Xi Jinpings sweeping anti-corruption campaign. Meng likely dealt extensively with former security chief Zhou Yongkang, who is now serving a life sentence for corruption. The Hong Kong newspaper said Meng was taken awayŽ for questioning upon landing in China last week by what it said were discipline authorities.Ž The term usually describes investigators in the ruling Communist Party who probe graft and political disloyalty. But the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the partys secretive internal investigation agency, had no announcements on its website about Meng and couldnt be reached for comment. Meng is the “rst person from China to serve as Interpols president, a post that is largely symbolic but powerful in status. Because Interpols secretary general is responsible for the day-to-day running of the agencys operations, Mengs absence may have little operational effect.Interpol asks for information on its missing president Macedonian police break up criminal ring selling artifactsSKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) „ Macedonian police say they have raided 16 sites in seven cities, busting up a criminal ring that illegally dealt in coins, jewelry and other precious artifacts stolen from archaeological sites across the country. The prosecutors of“ce said Saturday that 13 men were charged with dealing in goods of exceptional valueŽ for the countrys cultural heritage. It said seven of the suspects were ordered to be kept in custody for at least 30 days while the investigation goes on. Police spokesman Toni Angelovski told reporters Saturday that, after a yearlong investigation, police raids in seven Macedonian cities, including the capital of Skopje, led them to seize numerous coins, precious and semi-precious stones, jewelry, sculptures, ceramic and bronze items. He couldnt say exactly which eras the artifacts were from. Angelovski said the ring had offered and sold artifacts to people in Albania, Turkey and Greece.Belarus president: Belting a useful way to punish childrenMINSK, Belarus (AP) „ The authoritarian president of Belarus has rejected a prospective law against domestic violence as Western nonsense,Ž saying that physical punishment could be usefulŽ in raising children. President Alexander Lukashenko said a draft bill criminalizing domestic violence needs more work. He told journalists Friday that he is personally against the physical punishment of children, but added that a good belting could sometimes be useful for a kid.Ž Its just nonsense taken from the West,Ž he said. The president cited his own experience, saying he frequently punished his oldest son and that served as a good lesson for his younger son. Lukashenko has ruled Belarus with an iron hand for 24 years, maintaining rigid Sovietstyle controls over the economy and showing little tolerance for dissent or independent media. The Belarusian leader has often lashed out against the West, especially for its approval of same-sex marriages. He said Friday that they will soon have no families left, with men marrying other men.Ž The current Belarusian law doesnt contain speci“c regulations against domestic violence. Lukashenko did not mention violence against women in his remarks, but the bill covers all forms of domestic violence. The prospective bill was drafted by the Interior Ministry and Lukashenkos own administration, but Lukashenko said other organizations should have a say in creating the law. The Catholic Church in Belarus also has spoken against the document, with Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz, the archbishop of Minsk, urging Lukashenko in an open letter to be guided by national interests and spiritual values of the Belarusian people and not to follow disastrous secularist trends and gender ideology leading to the destruction of traditional family.ŽProtesters in Paris support migrant rescue ship AquariusPARIS (AP) „ Hundreds of people, many wearing orange to evoke life vests, demonstrated Saturday in Paris to back a private humanitarian ship that rescues migrants who are making the dangerous voyage to Europe across the Mediterranean Sea. Demonstrators at the Place de la Republique carried signs reading Saving lives: A duty not a crime,Ž Save the Aquarius,Ž and other slogans backing the ship. Placard-waving supporters of the Aquarius also gathered in the southern port city of Marseille and in the northern city of Lille. The Aquarius operator, SOS Mediterranee, is urging European governments to “nd a new ”ag for the ship after Panamas maritime authority removed its registration. The aid group says without a ”ag, the ship will have to stay in port. Migrant sea arrivals to Europe are sharply down this year but the issue of immigration is still a hot political topic across the continent. The International Organization for Migration says that 1,741 migrants have drowned at sea this year trying to cross the Mediterranean. HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD By JILL LAWLESSASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON „ Art prankster Banksy has struck again. A work by the elusive street artist self-destructed in front of startled auction-goers on Friday, moments after being sold for 1.04 million pounds ($1.4 million). In an Instagram post Saturday, Banksy claimed the dramatic artistic payoff had been years in the making. The spray-painted canvas Girl With BalloonŽ went under the hammer at Sothebys in London, fetching more than three times its pre-sale estimate and equaling a record price for the artist. Then, as an alarm sounded, it ran through a shredder embedded in the frame, leaving half the canvas hanging from the bottom in strips. A post on Banksys of“cial Instagram account showed the moment „ and the shocked reaction of those in the room „ with the words Going, going, gone...Ž A video was later posted on the account, stating: A few years ago I secretly built a shredder into a painting in case it was ever put up for auction.Ž The video showed images of a shredder being implanted into a picture frame along with footage of Fridays auction “nale. Banksys spokeswoman, Jo Brooks, con“rmed that the post was genuine. Sothebys „ which had noted before the sale that the works ornate gilded frame was an integral element of the artwork chosen by Banksy himselfŽ „ appeared as shocked as anyone else. It appears we just got Banksy-ed,Ž said Alex Branczik, head of contemporary European art at the auction house. The auction house said it was in discussion about next stepsŽ with the buyer, whose identity was not disclosed. Some artmarket watchers say the work could be worth even more in its shredded state. We have not experienced this situation in the past „ where a painting spontaneously shredded, upon achieving a record for the artist,Ž Branczik said. We are busily “guring out what this means in an auction context.Ž Geneva-based artist Pierre Koukjian, who was at the auction, said the buyer was very luckyŽ to own a now-historic piece. He called Banksys prank a turning point in the history of contemporary and conceptual art.Ž Koukjian, who has met Banksy, said he is sure he caught a glimpse of the artist in the saleroom amid the confusion of the moment. Brooks would not say whether the artist had been at the auction. She said Sothebys had been 100 percentŽ unaware of the planned stunt. Banksy is not the “rst artist to deconstruct his own work. In the years after World War II, German-born artist Gustav Metzger pioneered autodestructive art,Ž creating paintings using acid that ate away the fabric beneath. Banksy, who has never disclosed his full identity, began his career spray-painting buildings in Bristol, England, and has become one of the worlds best-known artists. His mischievous and often satirical images include two policemen kissing and armed riot police with yellow smiley faces. He also has a penchant for elaborate pranks. In 2005, he hung an image of a spear-toting ancient human pushing a shopping cart in the British Museum, where it remained for several days before being discovered. The next year he smuggled a life-sized “gure of a Guantanamo Bay detainee into Disneyland, and in 2015 he erected a full-scale dystopian theme park „ DismalandŽ „ by the British seaside. Girl With Balloon,Ž which depicts a small child reaching up toward a heart-shaped red balloon, was originally stenciled on a wall in east London and has been endlessly reproduced, becoming one of Banksys best-known images.Banksy artwork self-destructs just after $1.4 million sale PIERRE KOUKJIAN VIA APIn this grab taken from video on Friday people watch as the spraypainted canvas Girl with BalloonŽ by artist Banksy is shredded at Sothebys, in London, A Banksy artwork self-destructed moments after being sold at auction for 1.04 million pounds.

Beyond the sexual misconduct allegations, Democrats raised questions about Kavanaughs temperament and impartiality after he delivered de“ant, emotional, testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee where he denounced their party. Schumer said Kavanaughs partisan screedŽ showed not only a temperament un“tting for the high court but a lack of objectivity that should make him ineligible to serve. At one point in the hearing, Kavanaugh blamed a Clinton-revenge conspiracy for the accusations against him. The “ght ended up less about judicial views than the sexual assault accusations that riveted the nation and are certain to continue a national debate and #MeToo reckoning that is yet to be resolved. Republicans argued that a supplemental FBI investigation instigated by wavering GOP senators and ordered by the White House turned up no corroborating witnesses to the claims and that Kavanaugh had sterling credentials for the court.

She said on the Senate ”oor late Friday that Kavanaugh is a good manŽ but his appearance of impropriety has become unavoidable.Ž In a twist, Murkowski voted presentŽ Saturday as a courtesy to Republican Kavanaugh supporter Steve Daines, who was to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding in Montana. That balanced out the absence without affecting the outcome, and gave Kavanaugh the same two-vote margin hed have received had both lawmakers voted. It was the closest roll call to con“rm a justice since 1881, when Stanley Matthews was approved by 24-23, according to Senate records. As the Senate tried to recover from its charged atmosphere, Murkowskis move offered a moment of civility. I do hope that it reminds us that we can take very small steps to be gracious with one another and maybe those small gracious steps can lead to more,Ž she said. Republicans control the Senate by a meager 51-49 margin, and announcements of support Friday from Republicans Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine, along with Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, locked in the needed votes. Manchin was the only Democrat to vote for Kavanaughs con“rmation. He expressed empathy for sexual assault victims, but said that after factoring in the FBI report, I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a quali“ed jurist who will follow the Constitution.Ž A procedural vote Friday made Saturdays con“rmation a foregone conclusion. White House Counsel Don McGahn, who helped salvage Kavanaughs nomination as it teetered, sat in the front row of the visitors gallery for the vote with deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah. Senators on both sides know they have work to do to put the chamber back together again after a ferocious debate that saw them arguing over the sordid details of high school drinking games, sexual allegations and cryptic yearbook entries. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas said, The Senate has been an embarrassment. We have a lot of work to do.ŽKAVANAUGHFROM PAGE 1And she sashayed and shimmied and danced. The trip, which had been in the works for months, provided a welcome escape from the ugly political battle in the U.S. capital over Brett Kavanaugh, the presidents Supreme Court nominee. Kavanaughs fate had seemed in doubt after he was accused of sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh has denied the charge and on Saturday was con“rmed to a lifetime appointment on Americas highest court. Even half a world away, Mrs. Trump couldnt completely ignore the issue. Reporters asked her opinion about the judge, and she said he was highly quali“edŽ to join the court. As for Ford, Mrs. Trump declined to venture an opinion but said we need to help all victims, no matter what kind of abuseŽ they experienced. The struggle over Kavanaugh resurfaced the roiling debate over the treatment of women who allege sexual misconduct. The “rst lady has had to grapple with that issue herself, given the multiple women who have accused her husband of sexually inappropriate behavior, claims he says are false. Always under a microscope, the fashion-conscious “rst lady caught some criticism for the white pith helmet she wore with her safari ensemble in Kenya. Social media lit up with complaints about her choice of a hat viewed by some as a symbol of Kenyas colonial past and its one-time domination by the British. The former model had a terse rejoinder when asked about that: I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.Ž What, then, was her intended message for Africa? That we care and we want to show the world we care.Ž It was a message that was especially welcome given President Trumps own derogatory comments about a continent that he has yet to visit. The happier place Mrs. Trump seemed to go to while in Africa surprised some. Shes still largely a mystery to the American people because she maintains her largely low pro“le,Ž said Katherine Jellison, who studies “rst ladies at Ohio University. Joshua Meservey, a senior Africa policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Institute, said there were modest expectations for the “rst ladys trip, and she largely met them, avoiding any major gaffes along the way. As a public diplomacy tour, it seemed successful,Ž he said. The “rst lady opened the trip in Ghana, where she went to an infant clinic and learned how babies are weighed „ in slings that are hooked to a scale. It was at Greater Accra Regional Hospital that she plucked a chubby baby boy from the arms of the woman holding him. She cooed with the baby, who stared back at her with wonder. Photos of the unexpected moment were popular on social media. She also learned about Africas slave past by touring Cape Coast Castle, a former slave holding facility on the Ghanaian coast. Mrs. Trump spent time inside the cramped dungeon that was used to house male slaves. She also walked through the Door of No Return,Ž the portal through which the slaves were shipped to the New World, and gazed out at the Atlantic Ocean as if trying to imagine the harrowing journey. In Malawi, she went to Chipala Primary School in Lilongwe, where students sang their welcome to the “rst lady. She toured indoor and outdoor classrooms, observed lessons and watched some students play soccer with balls she donated. The “rst lady also witnessed the handover of a batch of textbooks donated by a U.S. international developmental agency. Mrs. Trump seemed most happy in Kenya, where she visited Nairobi National Park to highlight elephant preservation. Appearing reticent at “rst, she ultimately engaged them and ended up obviously enjoying the experience of feeding baby elephants milk through a super-sized baby bottle, patting one elephants head and stroking anothers ear. She temporarily lost her footing when an elephant made an unexpected move and got a little too close for her comfort. But she was braced from the rear by a Secret Service agent and resumed playing with the animals, laughing at their antics until it was time to head off on a 90-minute safari. The “rst lady seemed more into the swing of things „ literally „ at events later that day with Kenyan children. Music accompanied by the beat of drums greeted her arrival at an orphanage in Nairobi, where a group of children dressed in bright yellow T-shirts and patterned bottoms escorted her up a driveway to the building. She gave in to the infectious beat by sashaying as she approached a bank of news cameras, almost as if she was recalling her past life as a fashion model. She closed her tour in Egypt by touring the pyramids and the Great Sphinx to highlight U.S.-backed preservation efforts there. The U.S. Agency for International Development has been working with the Egyptian government on lowering groundwater levels to prevent additional damage to the landmarks. Each stop was meant to call attention to the work of USAID, her partner on the trip. But the president twice has proposed slashing the agencys money. The “rst ladys focus on elephant preservation also clashed with the administrations decision to allow Americans to resume importation of body parts of African elephants hunted for sport. She thinks animals are precious and doesnt like big-game hunting,Ž said Stephanie Grisham, the “rst ladys spokeswoman.MELANIAFROM PAGE 1spread of HPV to girls. While Gardasil was approved for ages 9 through 26, the shots are especially recommended for boys and girls at 11 or 12, before they “rst have sex and could get infected. About half of U.S. teens now have had two or three doses. Company testing done in older adults showed the vaccine also worked for them, too. In women 24 through 45, the original Gardasil was about 90 percent effective three years after the women received a third dose. The latest version of Gardasil protects against nine strains of HPV, four more than the original. According to the CDC, each year about 33,700 women and men are diagnosed with a cancer caused by an HPV infection, including 12,000 women with cervical cancer, which kills about 4,000 annually. Merck said the list price for Gardasil 9 is $205 per dose. Two doses are needed for those vaccinated before 15, while three are recommended for older people.

Still, 30-year mortgages can make financial sense. After all, youre probably saving for retirement, and by not spending too much on mortgage payments, you can sock away more each month for your future. Long-term money is likely to grow faster for you in the stock market than in real estate. Heres another smart strategy: Take out a 30-year loan with lower monthly payments, but make extra payments regularly, to pay down the principal faster. That can lop many years off the life of your loan. (Be sure to get a mortgage with no prepayment penalty.) Theres more to think about before you get a mortgage, such as whether you want a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan, and how much of a monthly payment you can afford. The more you know, the less you might have to pay for your dream home.

GM has collected a number of its car-sharing projects under a unified brand, Maven, and has invested roughly $500 million in ride-sharing company Lyft. It purchased Cruise Automation „ giving it a significant presence in Silicon Valley and a huge credibility boost „ while exiting a money-losing European business when it sold its Opel/Vauxhall operations. GM is becoming a leader in smart mobility and driverless vehicles and has focused the company on more lucrative global auto markets, which could pay off for long-term investors. The situation isnt dire in the near term, either. GM continues to cruise in China, with sales growing 4.4 percent year over year during the first half of 2018 to 1.84 million units. (For context, crosstown rival Ford, which was slower to get into the Chinese market, posted a 25 percent year-over-year decline in the same period to 400,443 units.) GM is also rolling out all-new versions of its bread-and-butter Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size trucks during the back half of 2018, which should support pricing and profitability over the next few years. Meanwhile, the companys dividend recently yielded a fat 4.5 percent. Take a look under GMs hood. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentOver a BarrelI used to subscribe to a respected business magazine, and it would periodically send me an advertising supplement. In one of those, I saw an ad for an investment opportunity in single malt whiskey. Just $1,500 would get me a hogshead barrel (probably around 60 gallons) of raw un-aged whiskey in a bond warehouse in Glasgow, Scotland. Doing some simple arithmetic, it looked like it could be worth something in eight to 10 years, and if not, I would at least have a barrel of aged whiskey. What could go wrong? Turns out it was mostly fraudulent. There apparently was some whiskey somewhere, but I never was able to trace it. I also was notified a couple of years later that the merchantŽ that had sold the investmentsŽ was out of business, and the only hope of restitution was if I had paid for it with a credit card, because then the credit card company might be on the hook for it. Anyway, it ended up being a 100 percent loss. The magazine later apologized for selling ad space to hucksters. „ H.K.C., online The Fool Responds: This is a great reminder that any investment opportunities that seem too good to be true probably are. Also, its smart to do some due diligence on any companies youre considering investing in, to see what their track record is and if there are any red flags evident. Taken PrivateQI read that Tesla might be taken private.Ž What does that mean? „ F.L., Columbia, MissouriACompanies often start out privately owned by their founders. If they grow and prosper, they may go publicŽ via an initial public offering (IPO), selling a chunk of themselves in shares on the stock market. Companies can go in the opposite direction, too, becoming private again, if their shares are bought back and no longer trade publicly. A high-profile example of a company being taken private is Dell. Founder Michael Dell, in partnership with a private equity firm, took his struggling computer company private in 2013. Now it looks like Dell will go public again. ***QDoes a low stock price mean a company is small, and vice versa? „ H.T., La Crosse, WisconsinANot at all. The stock price alone doesnt tell you much until you relate it to other numbers. To get at a companys market value, multiply its stock price by its number of shares. You have to factor in the number of shares to get an idea of a companys size. If Keyboard Depot (ticker: QWERTY) had a stock price of $100, for example, and 10 million shares outstanding, its market price (market capitalization,Ž or market cap,Ž as they say on Wall Street) would be $1 billion. (Size can also be measured by other factors, such as revenue or number of employees.) Consider that Cheesecake Factory, Starbucks and Verizon Communications were all recently trading for around $54 to $55 per share, but their market caps were, respectively, around $2 billion, $74 billion and $226 billion. Meanwhile, the WD-40 Company recently sported a share price near $188 but a market cap of $2.5 billion.Want more information about stocks?

The 15-year mortgage has a lot of upside for the right homebuyer. The main advantages of the 15-year loan are that youll often get a lower interest rate, and youll definitely pay less in interest over the life of the loan, building equity faster. The main downside: Your monthly payments will be higher. The 30-year mortgages main advantage is lower monthly payments „ but youll pay much more in interest and your interest rate will likely be higher. Still, with more affordable payments, you may be able to buy a bigger home. Imagine, for example, taking out a $200,000 mortgage to buy a $250,000 home. If you have a 30-year fixed-rate loan with an interest rate of 4.5 percent, youll pay $1,013 per month, and your interest paid over 30 years will top $160,000.

For the past couple of years Ive been in love with my best friend. She doesnt know how I feel, and I know she doesnt feel the same way about me. (She calls me the brother she always wanted.) I try hard to ght these feelings so our friendship can continue. She has been a huge part of my life, so losing her friendship would be devastating. To make matters more dicult, we are currently roommates and spend lots of time together. My heart breaks when she goes on dates or talks about guys she may be interested in. I know shell never see me as more than a friend. Is there any way I can get over these feelings so we can continue this amazing friendship? „ FRIEND ZONE IN VERMONT DEAR FRIEND ZONE: It might be easier to accomplish if you didnt live together, and I think you should tell her why. While it may end the fantasies you are nurturing, I see no reason for it to end your amazing friendship. Unless you are a masochist, please do not allow the status quo to continue because it isnt healthy for you. DEAR ABBY: One of my neighbors invited me to go shopping for plants at a local nursery. We had gone there a few days before. I drove that time; she said she would drive this time. I enjoy her company and was happy to go again. Well, we had to take two dierent highways to get there, and she drove between 40 and 45 miles an hour. Cars were passing us left and right going 65 or 70, and she couldnt understand why people honked at her. She seemed surprised when I informed her it was because she was driving so slow. It was very scary, and I dont ever want to ride with her again. How can I tactfully let her know that from now on Ill do the driving? Also, can I suggest that she drive only on side streets? „ SCARED FOR MY LIFE DEAR SCARED: You are right to be concerned for your neighbors safety. Drivers like her cause accidents as people become frustrated and need to pass her. Drivers are expected to observe the speed limits, and someone who drives at a crawl when the speed limit is 65 or 70 is breaking the law. If they are spotted by law enforcement, they can be ticketed for it. I know this because that is what happened to my grandmother when she was in her 80s. For both your sakes, please share this information with her. DEAR ABBY: I was at an estate sale recently and saw a woman scratch the price o an item. I gave her the death stare,Ž but was there anything else I should have done? There were no sta around that I could see. „ UNETHICAL IN THE MIDWEST DEAR UNETHICAL: Unless the woman was going to shoplift the item, she had to have given her money to someone on the premises. What you should have done was nd someone who was stang the sale and alerted him or her to what you observed.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

How can I get rid of it? „ Diana from South Dakota Dear Diana: With so much use, this happens often. Heres how to remove a bad odor from a dishwasher: Your dishwasher can be cleaned with household vinegar or citric acid powder. Pour a gallon of vinegar into the bottom. Allow it to sit for an hour. Then run the dishwasher through a complete cycle. Or add 1/2 cup of citric acid powder inside and run the dishwasher through a cycle. It also will help to get rid of hard water buildup. If an unpleasant odor still remains, check the drain hose to see if its crimped. Then check the bottom of the machine and the lter for gunk or bits of food. And after checking all this, if the odor is still strong, call a plumber because it could be a plumbing problem that needs to be dealt with ASAP. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I am a beginning cook, and it sometimes seems dicult or confusing. How can I make it easier? „ Susie from New York Dear Susie: First, take a deep breath and get organized. Get out the recipe you are going to use and read it carefully. Then put out all the pots, pans, measuring spoons and equipment that you will need to make the recipe. Next select all the ingredients you will need and place them on the counter. As you add each ingredient into the mixer, put it back into the cupboard or refrigerator. That way, you will know that you have added it to the recipe if you are interrupted. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: My small kids sometimes get bored at their birthday parties.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018By JOCELYN GECKERASSOCIATED PRESSSAN FRANCISCO „ California voters are right to think they already weighed in on how big cages should be for egg-laying hens. In 2008, voters ushered in Proposition 2, which sought to free egg-laying hens from tiny cages. It didnt outlaw cages but barred California farmers from keeping hens „ as well as calves raised for veal and breeding pigs „ in pens so small they virtually couldnt move. Since then, supermarket shelves have “lled with cage-free egg varieties. Corporations like McDonalds, Costco and Taco Bell have committed to using cage-free products. But a decade later, voters are being asked to revisit the issue with Proposition 12, the Farm Animal Con“nement Initiative. The Humane Society of the United States, the issues primary proponent, says the measure is needed to update California standards and to apply those standards to out-ofstate farmers selling their products in California. The earlier initiative simply stated the three types of animals must be able to turn around freely, stand up and fully extend their limbs „ but set no speci“cs. A yesŽ vote for Proposition 12 would create new minimum size requirements for con“nement pens for all three animals and require that all egg-laying hens be cage-free by 2022. It would also ban the sales from other states not meeting Californias standards. The Humane Society calls the measure a commonsense reformŽ that strengthens a decade-old animal cruelty law and gives farmers a phase-in time to shift to more humane practices. Most of the eggs sold in California come from birds con“ned in cages where its hard for them to even move. They have to eat, sleep, defecate and lay eggs in the same small space every day for their entire life,Ž said Josh Balk, vice president at the Humane Society of the United States. Proposition 12 ensures that the pork sold in California, the veal sold in California and the eggs sold in the state come from (animals) not con“ned in cages.Ž Speci“cally, the measure would require, starting in 2020, a calf con“ned for production to have at least 43 square feet of ”oor space to roam in, while each pig would have to be given 24 square feet of ”oor space starting in 2022. Egg-laying hens, starting in 2020, must be given 1 square foot of ”oor space each, and have to be cage-free by 2022, according to Proposition 12. According to “ndings of the states nonpartisan Legislative Analysts Of“ce, the measure would likely result in an increase in prices for eggs, pork and veal partly because farmers would have to remodel or build new housing for animals. Changes in housing systems, which come with signi“cant costs that increase food prices, should be driven by consumer purchasing decisions, not the agenda of any activist group,Ž Jim Monroe, National Pork Producers Council spokesman, told the Los Angeles Times. The Association of California Egg Farmers also opposes the measure, saying the expedited timeline could lead to supply disruptions, price spikes and a shortage of eggs for sale. The Legislative Analysts Of“ce concluded that if approved, the measure could cost the state as much as $10 million a year to enforce, and millions of dollars more per year in lost tax revenues from farm businesses that choose to stop or reduce production because of higher costs. Other opponents of Proposition 12 say it doesnt go far enough to stop animal cruelty. Bradley Miller, a spokesman for Californians against Cruelty, Cages and Fraud, which is leading a No on Proposition 12Ž campaign, said the measure is misleading because the phase-in period implicitly makes cages legal until at least 2022.Californians weigh making egg-laying hens cage-free by 2022 AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 28, 2007, “le photo, chickens appear at a chicken house near Livingston, Calif. Proposition 12 on Californias November ballot would require that egg-laying hens be cagefree by 2022. Tropical disturbance in the Caribbean is forecast to strengthenMIAMI (Miami Herald) „ A tropical disturbance off the coast of Honduras is showing signs or organizing into something more dangerous as it moves north toward the Gulf of Mexico, meteorologists said Saturday. On Saturday morning, the National Hurricane Center upgraded the systems chances of strengthening into a cyclone in the next two days to 80 percent, compared with Fridays prediction of 40 percent. A cyclone is either a tropical depression or a tropical storm. Forecasters are 90 percent con“dent that the system will upgrade into a cyclone in the next “ve days, likely forming in the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southern Gulf of Mexico. Its moving slowly „ about 5 mph „ and is expected to bring torrentialŽ amounts of rain to parts of Central America, the Yucatan peninsula and western Cuba into next week. Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at University of Miamis Rosenstiel School, said on Twitter that around Wednesday, the storm would reach somewhere between central Louisiana and the eastern Florida Panhandle. In October, hurricanes more often form in the Caribbean and head toward Florida and the gulf.Parents of teen who drowned in swim class file claimDANVILLE, Calif. (AP) „ The parents of a teenager who drowned during a high school swim class have “led a claim with his Northern California school district. The claim „ which is generally a precursor to a lawsuit „ alleges that a physical education teacher at San Ramon Valley High School had students tread water for more than three minutes when 15-year-old Benjamin Curry slipped under the water and drowned in May, the East Bay Times reported Friday. More than 50 students were in the pool during physical education teacher Aaron Beckers class, according to the claim. Becker, who also coaches varsity football, did not return the newspapers request for comment. District spokeswoman Elizabeth Graswich says of“cials have not reviewed the claim and cant discuss speci“cs. Family attorney Andy Schwartz said surveillance video showed the students treading water as Becker stood on a diving board. They were instructed to tread for three minutes and then another 30 seconds, according to the claim. Since the drowning, the school in Danville, east of San Francisco, doesnt offer swim during physical education. A new district policy requires a lifeguard be on duty during any swim or water polo practices. An autopsy report in June found Curry accidentally drowned, according to the newspaper. Schwartz said school of“cials knew the drowning was an accident but didnt rebut early media reports in which students speculated Curry may have killed himself. The report also said surveillance video showed Currys classmates leaving the pool and no activity until an hour later, when another class arrived and saw the teen underwater.Maine woman who drove onto ball field indicted on 15 countsALFRED, Maine (AP) „ A Maine woman accused of driving onto a baseball “eld and hitting and killing a man is facing more than a dozen charges including manslaughter and aggravated assault. A grand jury returned a 15-count indictment this week against 51-year-old Carol Sharrow in York County Superior Court. Sharrow, of Sanford, is charged with killing 68-year-old Douglas Parkhurst, of West New“eld. Police said at the time that the car came onto the “eld during a boys baseball game at Goodall Park in Sanford. Video showed it circling the bases as umpires and players ”ed. Police say the hit-and-run took place on June 1. Sharrows attorney didnt return a telephone message seeking comment.Coast Guard rescues man, boy, dog from capsized boat off LIMOUNT SINAI, N.Y. (AP) „ U.S. Coast Guard crew members have rescued a man, his 9-year-old son and their dog after the familys “shing boat capsized off Long Island. The Coast Guard says it responded to a radio call at 8:30 a.m. Saturday about a capsized boat near the Fire Island Inlet. Newsday reports that the boat belongs to 47-year-old Brian Bair, who was “shing with his son Nolan and their yellow Lab, Pepper. Brian Bairs wife, Jennifer Bair, tells Newsday that a freak rogue waveŽ crashed into the boat and it capsized. Crew members on the Coast Guards 45-foot response boat spotted the father, son and dog at about 8:45 a.m. and pulled them onto the boat. The Coast Guard says only Nolan was wearing a life jacket.Some funeral homes stock overdose antidoteBALTIMORE (AP) „ Funeral directors in Maryland are increasingly concerned their employees could be exposed to opioids. Thats why some are stocking naloxone, the medication the reverses the effects of an overdose. The Baltimore Sun reported Friday that funeral directors are calling themselves the last respondersŽ to the opioid epidemic. The concern is that employees could come into contact with opioids on a dead persons body or the clothes of a mourner. Synthetic opioids like fentanyl and carfentanyl can be deadly, even in quantities as small as a grain of salt when inhaled or absorbed through the skin. The National Funeral Directors Association is recommending members to prepare for the possibility that someone could suffer from exposure. The association has said that members should recognize overdose symptoms and train staff to administer naloxone By STUART LEAVENWORTHMCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU (TNS)Imagine that your son or daughter is hanging out with friends, unaware a crime is unfolding a few blocks away. The police stop them and frisk them, and then tell your child and other minors they are free to go „ if they consent to providing DNA samples. Your teenager complies. The police swab the inside of his or her mouth, and „ unbeknownst to you „ your familys DNA ends up in a law enforcement database. Across the country, this scenario is becoming more common as police agencies make DNA collection a routine practice during traf“c stops and some investigations. Adult suspects are the main targets of these DNA dragnets,Ž but some end up sweeping up teenagers. Most states have few or no restrictions on the ability of local law enforcement to collect DNA from minors. But that is starting to change. Last week, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that requires police in that state to obtain either judicial approval or consent from a parent or guardian before collecting DNA from minors during street stops. DNA is a powerful crime-“ghting tool, and investigators say the expansion of law enforcement DNA databases has helped them crack numerous cold cases. Less attention has been paid to the privacy consequences of including juveniles in the databases, particularly minors who have committed no crimes or have been arrested for relatively minor offenses. In 2016, ProPublica revealed that police in Florida, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and North Carolina had been collecting DNA from adults and juveniles not charged with „ or even suspected of „ crimes. The investigative reporting website described the practice as stop-and spit,Ž a variation on stop-and-frisk.Ž Like most states, Florida has no law prohibiting police from requesting DNA from bystanders. While adults and minors can legally refuse a police request to submit to DNA testing, many young people may not realize they have that right, said Jackie Azis, a staff lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union in Miami. In California, voters in 2004 approved Proposition 69, a ballot measure that allowed law enforcement to collect DNA from all felons and people arrested for certain crimes. The law included protections for juveniles „ ensuring that the states DNA database would include DNA only from minors implicated in serious crimes. Proposition 69, however, did not regulate the DNA databases compiled by local police agencies. Police in San Diego, since at least 2009, have been routinely collecting DNA from juveniles who consent to it during stop and friskŽ policing, according to a federal lawsuit the ACLU of San Diego “led against the city in 2017. That case involves a teenager, P.D.,Ž who was 16 years old in 2016, when San Diego gang unit of“cers stopped him and four other African-American boys. According to the lawsuit and subsequent reporting by Voice of San Diego, of“cers stopped the “ve teenagers because they thought they were wearing clothing associated with a street gang. The “ve boys had no criminal records, but the police handcuffed them, patted them down and searched their bags. Police found an unloaded gun in P.D.s bag, registered to a father of one of the other boys. The other boys were told they could quickly be released if they signed consent forms allowing police to take samples of their DNA. Police booked P.D. on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon and collected his DNA. (With questions about probably cause for the search, a juvenile court judge dismissed the charge.) In its 2017 suit against the police department, the ACLU alleges that P.D. and the other boys had been stopped and DNA-pro“led as part of a department policy aimed at evading the juvenile protections of Proposition 69. The ACLU backed up this claim with a 2009 San Diego Police Department memo that says: Law enforcement personnel can still collect biological samples from adults and juveniles, if they are for an investigative purpose to be held in the Departments local databank and not for the submission to a state level DNA database.Ž The suit, “led on behalf of P.D.s mother, Jamie Wilson, argues that juveniles are incapable of providing informed consent for DNA collection. It also infers that San Diego police are targeting AfricanAmericans for DNA collection, a claim the city has disputed. To some extent, that litigation has now been overtaken by state legislation that Brown signed into law on Sept. 26. The legislation forbids police from collecting DNA from minors on the street without a judicial order or consent of the childs parent, guardian or attorney. In cases where a minor and parent agrees to DNA collection, the new law also obligates the police agency to delete the DNA information from its database if the minor no longer remains a suspect after two years. The California Police Chiefs Association opposed the bill, arguing that it would restrict law enforcement from collecting samples from victims who are also minors.Ž It also could complicate investigations in which a minor was a victim and a parent was a possible suspect, the association said. Supporters note that the new law includes exemptions in which parental consent would not be required in some circumstances, such as cases involving a juvenile victim or suspected perpetrator of a sexual assault.ŽMost states dont restrict DNA collection from minors SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTOMost states have few or no restrictions on the ability of local law enforcement to collect DNA from minors.

The Tarpons swept through the Gene Gorman volleyball tournament Saturday, defeating district rival Lemon Bay in the finals 2-0 (25-17, 25-16). Charlotte (19-4) did not drop a set in its four-game tournament, nor was it ever really challenged in playing two local rivals and Labelle. I wanted to see the girls work together and play on point throughout the day,Ž Charlotte coach Michelle Dill said. Toward the end of the season we want to keep doing what we need to do.Ž Charlotte, which beat North Port, Desoto and Labelle to get to the finals, made its life a lot easier by having Kelsey Nolan and Shelby Beisner at the top of its service lineup. The Tarpons seemed to be up six or seven points almost immediately as both had their AŽ games going. Beisner, in particular, was red hot on serve. In the semi-final against Labelle she had eight aces in the first set alone. For this, she was named the tournament MVP, winning $1,000 for the schools general scholarship fund in her name. Ive missed my serves a lot this season, so Ive focused on getting them in. Coach has been giving me a place for me to serve to and me hitting that spot,Ž Beisner said. We didnt miss a lot and we focused on that because thats a lot of points we can receive.Ž Lemon Bay (15-7), playing shorthanded, played well as it worked on things for districts. We kept it close. Charlotte is a hard-hitting team. We tried different rotations and different positions, and it worked,Ž Lemon Bay coach Pat Auer said. We struggle against teams that hit hard, By TIM REYNOLDSAP SPORTS WRITERMIAMI GARDENS, Fla. „ At Miami, this will be The Comeback. At Florida State, this will be The Collapse. NKosi Perry threw four touchdown passes, and No. 17 Miami pulled off its biggest comeback ever against Florida State by rallying from 20 points down midway through the second half to top the Seminoles 28-27 on Saturday night. I never doubted,Ž Miami safety Jaquan Johnson said. There were few who could say that. The game had the usual fare that comes with this rivalry: A pregame shout fest after warmups, the entire Miami roster getting an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for running across the “eld to come to the aid of injured receiver Jeff Thomas after he got pulled down by his face mask and was shaken up near a raucous Florida State sideline, and missed “eld goals by both teams in the “nal quarter. But what Miami did in the “nal 20 minutes, that was most unusual. The Hurricanes, down 27-7, scored two touchdowns in a span of 42 seconds to get right back into the game, and then Perry connected with Brevin Jordan with 11:52 left for what became the winning score „ the one that would give Miami (5-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) its “rst home victory over FSU since 2004. No one gave in,Ž Miami coach Mark Richt said. No one gave up,Ž Perrys numbers By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERGAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) „ Lucas Krull grew up idolizing Tim Tebow, a left-handed quarterback big enough to play tight end. So imagine how wideeyed Krull was when Tebow spoke in the locker room before Floridas game against LSU. Krull was even more star-struck when Tebow congratulated him afterward. A former Arkansas pitcher and now a seldom-used tight end, the 6-foot-6 Krull lofted a perfect pass to Feleipe Franks on a trick play that set up No. 22 Floridas winning touchdown in a 27-19 victory against “fth-ranked LSU on Saturday. I was like, Hey, can we get a picture?Ž Krull said. He was like, Yeah, of course. Great throw. Great team win. So that was awesome to be able to talk to him.Ž The Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) scored all their points after the end of the “rst quarter, when Tebow became the sixth player inducted into the schools ring of honor. I didnt want him to let him down that way,Ž said Florida coach Dan Mullen, who was Tebows offensive coordinator for two national championships. I know its a night hell never forget and the whole family will never forget. I know winning that game was kind of like a little cherry on top to make sure it was all smiles.Ž With Tebow watching much of the game from the sideline, Florida looked a little like a championship contender. Lamical Perine grinded out tough yards and scored twice, Floridas defense was as good as its been all season and the difference was another perfect trick play called by Mullen. A week after beating Mississippi State with a double pass, Franks handed off to Krull and slipped around the right side mostly unnoticed. Krull pulled up and lofted a 15-yarder back to Franks that set up Perines second touchdown. That last drive they had was a devastating drive,Ž LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. We just couldnt make a play.Ž The drive was huge for Florida, which had dropped six of the last eight in the series and two in a row in Gainesville. It immediately followed LSUs go-ahead score that featured two long runs from Nick Brossette. Lucky runs,Ž Gators defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson said. We busted.Ž Brossette ran for 79 yards on the drive, including a 2-yard plunge that put the Tigers (5-1, 2-1) up 19-14 with 8:48 to play. Florida answered, but didnt put LSU away until Stewarts interception and then another one on fourth down on the ensuing possession. Its another step for us,Ž Gardner-Johnson said.

By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESRays bench coach Charlie Montoyo will interview this week for the vacant Reds manager job, according to several published reports. Montoyo, 53 this month, spent 18 years managing in the Rays minor-league system before joining the major-league staff in 2015 as third-base coach and shifted to the bench coach role this season, working closely with manager Kevin Cash on all in-game decisions. Montoyos interview is “rst of several such opportunities expected for him and Rocco Baldelli this off-season. 3B coach Matt Quatraros name also may come up. Senior VP Chaim Bloom, appropriately, is being included in speculation for several GM-type jobs. Montoyo will be one of a reported 10 (or more) candidates to interview for the Reds job, “lling capably on an interim basis by Jim Riggleman after the mid-April “ring of Bryan Price. Also interviewing this week, per reports, is Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens. The Reds have already brought in a number of external candidates, including former bigleague managers Joe Girardi, John Farrell and Brad Ausmus, along with Giants VP of player development David Bell. Internal candidates talked to include Riggleman, bench coach Pat Kelly, 3B coach Billy Hatcher, 1B coach Freddie Benavides. There has also been media speculation of interest in Eduardo Perez, the current ESPN analyst who is the son of Tony Perez and whose 13-year playing career included a stop with the Devil Rays. The team is looking to make a decision by the end of the World Series.Rays bench coach Charlie Montoyo to interview for Reds job MLB: Tampa Bay RaysBy MARK DIDTLERASSOCIATED PRESSTAMPA, Fla. „ J.T Miller and Nikita Kucherov scored in the shootout and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 in the regular-season opener for both teams Saturday night. Florida goalie Roberto Luongo departed midway through the second period with a lower-body injury after teammate Frank Vatrano landed on his extended right leg during a scramble in front of the goal. The 39-year-old Luongo, who stopped all 13 shots he faced in just over 32 minutes, needed help to skate off the ice. Luongo was also shaken up earlier in the second when he took a shot by Steven Stamkos off the mask. Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 42 saves in regulation. He made one save in the shootout and had another shot hit the post. The Lightning got a third-period, short-handed goal from Anthony Cirelli. Tampa Bay was held scoreless over the “nal 159:27 in the 2018 Eastern Conference Final in which eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington rebounded from a one-game de“cit to win Games 6 and 7. Jacob MacDonald scored for the Panthers. Florida missed the playoffs by one point last season despite going 25-8-2 after the AllStar break. Cirelli tied it at 1 by beating James Reimer with 9:15 to play. Reimer stopped 15 shots. MacDonald scored at 5:58 of the “rst from the left circle in his “rst NHL game. The 25-year-old MacDonald is the sixth NHL player born in Oregon. Florida center Derek MacKenzie left in the “rst period with an upper-body injury. NOTESLightning F Ryan Callahan (shoulder surgery) is starting the season on injured reserve, but could be back in the next month. C Tyler Johnson (upper body) didnt play, but should return next week. ...

By ANDREW DAMPFAP SPORTS WRITERUDINE, Italy „ Cristiano Ronaldo asked his Juventus teammates to leave him alone. For all that hes embroiled in „ accused of rape nine years ago „ the soccer superstar wanted some space so he could celebrate his goal on Saturday all by himself in front of a TV camera. He leaped into the air with an emphatic double “st pump, as hes often marked his goals, and then let his teammates congratulate him. Ronaldos powerful, angled goal, the second of the match and his fourth of the season, was met by applause and boos in the Italian league game at the home of Udinese. Ronaldo and Juventus “nished 2-0 winners. Ronaldo had a good game,Ž Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. Hes been training serenely and tonight he scored an extraordinary goal.Ž Just over a week ago, Kathryn Mayorga “led a civil lawsuit in the U.S. saying she was raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009. Police have reopened an investigation. Ronaldo has denied the accusation. Ronaldo was not available for questions after the match, and Allegri wouldnt speculate what has been going through Ronaldos mind away from the soccer “eld. Off the pitch, I dont know, because I dont live with him at home,Ž Allegri said. I see him on the pitch and hes serene. He trains, he plays and he scores goals „ thats the most important thing.Ž Ronaldo played last for Juventus last weekend in Serie A, but midweek he missed a Champions League game because of an automatic suspension from a red card and was left out of Portugals squad for upcoming international matches. Available again for Juventus on Saturday, Ronaldos mother, Maria Dolores Aveiro, sent her son a message on Instagram: Good luck son and for your team because together we are stronger.Ž Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa, while in Spain, spoke in defense of Ronaldo, appealing to the presumption of innocence, as well as Ronaldos successful career. People need to understand ... (the) presumption of innocence,Ž Costa said. It is not enough for someone to be accused of something to be guilty of it. If theres something we have proof of is that he is an extraordinary professional, an extraordinary sportsman, an extraordinary footballer, and someone who has honored and given prestige to Portugal, and certainly what we all wish for is that nothing can ever stain that record of Ronaldo.Ž Some Juventus fans at the match also expressed support for Ronaldo. On Thursday, Juventus sent a statement of support and called him a great champion.Ž But his sponsors Nike and video game maker EA Sports have expressed concern about the allegation. Since the allegation surfaced, Juventus share price has fallen by nearly 20 percent. Neither Ronaldo nor Juventus have addressed the allegation by Mayorga that she received a payoff of $375,000 in 2010 after being put under pressure by the players “xersŽ to keep quiet about an incident in a penthouse hotel suite. Other than the game against Young Boys, Ronaldo has played every minute of Juventus other nine matches in all competitions this season.Amid rape case, Ronaldo asks for space to celebrate goal AP PHOTOIJuventuss Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring during the Serie A soccer match between AC Udinese and Juventus.Lightning top Panthers 2-1 in shootout AP PHOTOFlorida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad and Tampa Bay Lightning center Brayden Point battle for position during the second period of Saturdays game.

The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORIt was something he knew he always wanted to do. Justin Midgett followed in his father Billys footsteps, as the Tarpons starting quarterback. He would be among the nations top 10 rated passers, while wearing the schools blue and yellow. And although Midgetts lineage may suggest he was predisposed to becoming the Tarpons starting quarterback, the passing records he established during his tenure while piloting the Charlotte offense, secured his place in the schools history. Midgett was recently inducted into the Charlotte High School Sports Hall of Fame, an honor the elder Midgett also received, making them the “rst father and son to earn the distinction. I found out a little over a month ago, it was humbling,Ž said Midgett, the Tarpons 2002 offensive MVP. I went in with some guys who had some crazy stats and were amazing athletes. When I went in, I was like how do I compare to these guys, great athletes who won state championships. Im as much a product of the great athletes I had around me, and the great coaches who allowed me to look as good as I did. Im very thankful for the people who got me there. Im humbled by the entire experience. I still havent been able to think about it enough to put it into words, how I truly feel about it. It was an awesome experience, standing out there, when they called me out, looking up into the stands and seeing the people Ive known my whole life. Growing up here, teachers that I had, that I now work with.Ž Midgett distinguished himself during his high school career, one that saw him as a senior rated as the top quarterback in the state of Florida, and earning him “rst team all selection status in Class 4A. The Punta Gorda native also played baseball and basketball for the Tarpons. Midgett has always felt at home at the Wallace Keller Stadium Complex, he began working out at the facility while in middle school, in an environment he found inviting, providing him with a sense of belonging. I grew up coming to Charlotte High School games, since I was knee high to a grasshopper,Ž said Midgett. The elder Midgetts records and career as the Tarpons starting quarterback provided the younger Midgett with all of the motivation he needed. I wanted to be like my dad,Ž said Justin, who also played safety for the Tarpons. I wanted to break all of his records. He had a bunch of records. I knew coming up, this is what I wanted to do.Ž Midgett was a 4-year starter during his time at Charlotte High School, and his freshman year, was the “rst year Binky Waldrop was at the helm of the Tarpons program. Waldrop, whos also a Tarpon Hall of Famer, played with Justins father, and they were in the same graduating class. Midgett is now a part of Coach Waldrops staff, serving in the capacity as an assistant coach. Midgett and Waldrop had a great relationship when he was playing, something that still exists today. I think a lot of Justin,Ž said Waldrop. Hes probably the best quarterback that weve had play here. The thing that I always admired the most about him is his competitiveness. Hes that way as a coach too. It makes me proud (to see him get inducted into the Hall of Fame). I was friends with his father, we played baseball and football together. There was a long connection before he came to high school. Ive known him since he was born. It feels like one of your own kids got in.Ž It was during his senior campaign, one where Midgett led the Tarpons to their second undefeated year in school history, and deep into the playoffs, where Charlotte would reach the state semi“nals. Midgett was a formidable threat on the football “eld, passing for nearly 2,500 yards and 21 touchdowns, earning a full scholarship to the University of Florida. However, whats even more amazing was that he tore the ligaments in his right ankle, during the Tarpons second game of the year, but Midgett wouldnt let the injury deter him from playing, the intrepid warrior went into battle for each of the Tarpons 14 games that season, never missing a beat. However, Midgett always knew he would return to Charlotte High School, with a professional career that saw him play for the Arena football Florida Firecats, Lubbock Renegades and Birmingham Steeldogs and another season in France. When I went off to college, the arena and all that other stuff, I always knew I would come back to the hometown,Ž said Midgett, who threw for nearly 400 yards and “ve touchdowns in his “nal regular season game, one that saw him pass for 270 yards and four touchdowns in the games “rst quarter. I was lucky enough that Coach Waldrop accepted me back to coach. He started me with the freshmen, and had me work my way up. It was a good thing. I needed that. Even when I was playing arena, I would come back here and coach. I wasnt a year round coach back then, but I was still helping as much as I could.Ž The Tarpons rich sense of history, pride in their program, and its emphasis on building relationships, created an environment conducive to winning. Its been a great experience,Ž said Midgett. I love what Charlotte High offers. Its family, pride and tradition. The family atmosphere is what I love about this place. I think thats what sets Charlotte High School apart from most other schools. Were really a family and take care of each other.Ž As a coach, Midgett has directed his energies toward shaping the character of the young men who are currently participating in the Tarpons program. The football aspect is always there out at practice,Ž said Midgett, who loves his job, the area, the school, the family environment Charlotte High School has to offer, and its his intention to retire a Tarpon. What you try to do with these young men, is build positive young men, solid young men, who youre proud of when youre out in the community...the biggest aspect of what I do, and what we do, is showing these young men, how to act like men, how to mature. Thats where the family aspect comes along.ŽTarpon 2018 Hall of Fame class includes Midgett MIDGETT PHOTO PROVIDED Justin Midgett was recently inducted into the Charlotte High School Sports Hall of Fame.

Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018By DAN RODRICKSTHE BALTIMORE SUN (TNS)BALTIMORE „ Chris Davis, the disaster within the disaster that was the 2018 Orioles season „ the worst in the teams history „ must be the most self-conscious man in the country. I mean, wouldnt you be? A few years ago, he was Crush. Now hes Crash. (And even that nickname doesnt work because its already taken, permanently engraved in baseball culture by Kevin Costners portrayal of a minor-league catcher by that name in Bull Durham.Ž) I wont go into the statistics because they are too shocking and painful to put into print again. Besides, by now, everybody knows about Chris Davis and his epic collapse as a slugger, a collapse so severe he might never recover. And, of course, all the millions in his seven-year contract compound and amplify the calamity. I am not he. You are not he. Only he is he. Only Davis knows how Davis truly feels about what happened this past season. I assume the man must be profoundly embarrassed by the paradox of his hitting decline and his financial ascent. I mean, you would have to have the emotional constitution of a door „ or Donald J. Trump „ not to be. I will even speculate that Davis feels guilty about all the money. Again, I am not he. You are not he. Only he is he. Only Davis can decide what happens next. But I have called this meeting to stick my nose in his business because, for one thing, unless the Angelos family finds some way of cutting him loose, Davis is going to be around for a while. More importantly: Fans still care about the guy. No matter how awful he looks at the plate, he is still Crush to most Orioles fans. A lot of us were pleased and relieved that, after hitting 47 home runs in 2015 „ a tragic and tense year in Baltimore „ Davis signed that big contract to stay here. We want to see him smile again. We want him to be happy, not miserable, with his millions. Nobody, including Davis, asked me, but I think he has three options: „ Option 1: Hit the reset button. This is the obvious thing, and it is probably what Davis has in mind „ to double-down on his offseason training, and come back next year and try again. Totally understandable and admirable. The baseball cognoscenti believe he is in a long tailspin, with his batting prowess in permanent decline, and they might be right. Davis is 32. We might have seen the last of his 30-plus home run seasons. But other sluggers have punched back hard after being on the ropes. It could happen with Davis. As Yogi Berra said: Ninety percent of the game is half mental.Ž If Davis can shake his self-consciousness about his lousy 2018 season and about the millions he makes, he might be able to get his groove back. And he only needs a 60 percent comeback, according to Stan The FanŽ Charles, who analyzed Davis career with the Orioles for a recent piece in Press Box. If the Orioles can get 60 percent of the best version of Davis,Ž Charles wrote, that comes out to about 30 home runs, 82 RBIs and solid if not spectacular defense, which isnt horrible for $17 million a year.Ž „ Option 2: Walk away. Retire from baseball. Savor the memories and enjoy the significant cash you have already accumulated. Relieve the Orioles of the remainder of the huge contract, theoretically freeing up millions for new players as the team rebuilds. Davis would not be the first to do this. During the 1994 season, future Hall-of-Famer Ryne Sandberg walked away from the Chicago Cubs and what at the time was one of baseballs fattest contracts. Sandberg believed his skills had slipped beyond repair. He gave up about $16 million guaranteed. Its never been a big part of my thinking or why I played the game,Ž Sandberg said of the money. Its not the thing that motivated me.Ž In the winter of 2011, a Kansas City Royals relief pitcher, Gil Meche, left the game and $12 million behind. He was 32 years old and felt guilty about the loot. Once I started to realize I wasnt earning my money, I felt bad,Ž he told The New York Times. I was making a crazy amount of money for not even pitching. Honestly, I didnt feel like I deserved it.Ž For Chris Davis, there would be no shame in doing this. „ Option 3: Play out your contract and take the Orioles money, for as long as you feel right about it, but give half of your annual earnings to charities, and let everyone in Birdland know what youre doing. This might make Davis feel a little better about his predicament „ even if the 60 percent hitting comeback does not happen and he ends up on the bench.Three options for Chris Davis after his disastrous season ATLANTA „ Lefthander Sean Newcomb will start Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers and not Kevin Gausman. With the Braves trailing 2-0 in the best-of-“ve series, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker made the change Saturday. The 25-year-old Newcomb came within one strike of throwing a no-hitter against the Dodgers at home on July 29. He pitched two scoreless innings in relief of starter Mike Foltynewicz in Thursdays opener. We need to win,Ž Snitker said. Not that Gausman doesnt give us that opportunity, we like how Newcomb matches up with them and the success that hes had against the Dodgers this year.Ž Snitker said he discussed the change with general manager Alex Anthopoulos on the ”ight home after Atlantas 3-0 loss Friday. They agreed to the move Saturday afternoon. Gausman is 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA in 10 starts since he was acquired from Baltimore. Snit came up and talked to me on the plane before we took off, let me know that that was a possibility, so kind of get my mind right before I kind of went to bed,Ž Newcomb said. Newcomb threw a career-high 134 pitches when he went 8 2/3 innings against Los Angeles in a 4-1 win on July 29. Taylor singled to left on a 2-2 pitch with two outs in the ninth. Newcomb was 12-9 with a 3.90 ERA in his “rst full big league season, but had a 5.68 ERA in 10 late-season starts. Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is expected to start for the Dodgers. He allowed one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday during the 5-2 win over Colorado in the NL West tiebreaker and “nished 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA. Atlanta has been outscored 9-0 int he “rst two games, managing just nine hits. Only two runners have reached third base. Snitker said he may move switch-hitting second-baseman Ozzie Albies up in the lineup to No. 2. He is not anticipating any changes to his starting eight. Weve got to take the safety off and start “ring,Ž Snitker said.Newcomb to start Game 3 for Braves instead of Gausman AP PHOTOAtlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb throws to a Los Angeles Dodgers batter during the third inning of Game 1 of a baseball National League Division Series on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, in Los Angeles. By KRISTIE RIEKENAP SPORTS WRITERHOUSTON (AP) „ Marwin Gonzalez hit a go-ahead, two-run double, Alex Bregman homered for the second straight day and the Houston Astros beat the Cleveland Indians 3-1 Saturday to take a 2-0 AL Division Series lead. Gerrit Cole struck out 12 and walked none, combining with two relievers on Houstons second straight three-hitter. He allowed Francisco Lindors third-inning homer. Gonzalez put the Astros ahead in the sixth with the third of his four hits, an opposite-“eld double to right off usually reliable reliever Andrew Miller. Bregman homered against Trevor Bauer in the seventh, and the World Series champions moved within a win of a second straight trip to the AL Championship Series. Dallas Keuchel starts for the Astros when the series resumes Monday in Cleveland. Mike Clevinger is scheduled to pitch for the Indians. Cole followed Mondays solid start from Justin Verlander by allowing one run and three hits in seven innings, joining Tom Seaver (1973) as the only pitchers to strike out at least 12 batters without a walk in a postseason game. Ryan Pressly got two outs, and Roberto Osuna walked one in a four-out save. Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco allowed two runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings. The AL Central champion Indians have three runs in the two games and are batting .100 (6 for 60). Jose Ramirez, Edwin ncarnacion and Josh Donaldson have combined to go 1 for 22. Jose Altuve singled leading off the sixth but slipped as he left the batters box and was limping after reaching “rst base. Manager AJ Hinch and a trainer came out to check on Altuve, who remained in the game. Bregman walked and one out later, Cleveland brought in Miller, the dominating left-hander who was MVP of the 2016 AL Championship Series but has been slowed by injuries this year. The switch-hitting Gonzalez turned around and hit right-handed. He fouled off a slider, then doubled on a fastball. Miller had allowed just one previous inherited runner to score in the postseason, on a sacri“ce ”y by Bostons David Ortiz in Game 3 of the 2016 AL Division Series. Miller walked Carlos Correa on four pitches and loaded the bases with an intentional walk. Bauer, a starter pitching in relief for the second straight day, retired Evan Gattis on a popout and struck out Martin Maldonado. Cole retired 13 of 14 after Lindors homer, striking out the side in the fourth. After fanning Ramirez on three pitches to end the sixth, Cole screamed and pumped both arms as he walked off the mound. Houston leadoff hitter George Springer went 1 for 4 with a single, ending a streak of “ve straight postseason games with a home run „ one shy of Daniel Murphys record.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 DALLAS (AP) „ Freshman Cameron Dicker kicked a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give 19th-ranked Texas a 48-45 victory over No. 7 Oklahoma on Saturday. Texas won after Kyler Murray rallied Oklahoma with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Sam Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and threw for 314 yards with two scores for Texas (5-1, 3-0 Big 12), which has its first five-game winning streak since 2013. He converted third-and-3 on Texas final drive with a 4-yard keeper and his 8-yard draw to the middle of the field set up the winning kick. The Longhorns took a 45-24 lead into the fourth quarter before Murray threw a 19-yard TD pass to Lee Morris and ran 67 yards for a score on a one-play drive. Trey Sermons 7-yard run for the tying touchdown with 2:38 left gave the Sooners three TDs in a span of six minutes. Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1) lost to the Longhorns for the third time in six seasons. This was the first time in that span Texas was ranked for the Red River Rivalry, which had never had more combined points in a 113-game series that dates back to 1900. Murray completed 19 of 26 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns, and ran for 92 yards. But he also had two turnovers, only his third interception of the season and a big fumble in the third quarter when he lost control of the ball when scrambling. Five plays after Murrays fumble, not long after his 77-yard TD pass to Marquise Brown, the Longhorns led 38-24 when Ehlinger burst into the end zone on a 2-yard run. Brown had nine catches for 131 yards and two TDs. His long TD was his national-best seventh catch of at least 40 yards this season. LilJordan Humphrey had nine catches for 133 yards and a touchdown, and his 2-yard TD pass to Collin Johnson capped the first Texas possession of the game.NO. 1 ALABAMA 65, ARKANSAS 31FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa passed for 334 yards and four touchdowns and Alabama ran its winning streak against Arkansas to 12. It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) to set the tone as Tagovailoa hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds into the game. On the Crimson Tides second possession, Tagovailoa hit Smith again, and the 6-foot-4 junior ripped off another big gain before he was stripped from behind by Ryan Pulley. Alabama receiver Henry Ruggs III picked up the fumble in stride and carried it the remaining 12 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead with 10:01 left in the first quarter. The margin grew to 21-0 before Arkansas (1-5, 0-3) got on the scoreboard. Alabama had a defensive touchdown in the fourth quarter when Shyheim Carter intercepted a Storey pass and returned it 44 yards for a touchdown. Alabama has returned four interceptions for TDs this season.NO. 3 OHIO STATE 49, INDIANA 26COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for a career-best 455 yards and school record-tying six touchdowns and Ohio State pulled away in the fourth quarter. A week after a gritty victory at Penn State, the Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) were forced to work hard by quarterback Peyton Ramsey and an Indiana offense that took advantage of plenty of early defensive mistakes. The Buckeyes didnt get a handle on this one until Haskins hooked up with Terry McLaurin for a 17-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth, and then added a 30-yard scoring pass to Binjimen Victor with seven minutes left. Haskins completed 33 of 44 passes and connected for two touchdowns each with Parris Campbell and McLaurin, and one each to Johnnie Dixon and Victor. Ohio State came from behind twice in the first half to take a 28-20 lead at the half and then kept the Hoosiers (4-2, 1-2) at bay in the second half despite the gritty play of Ramsey, who threw for a career-high 322 yards and three touchdowns. Ohio States J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber combined for 152 yards on the ground. Campbell caught nine passes for 142 yards.NO. 4 CLEMSON 63, WAKE FOREST 3WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) „ Travis Etienne rushed for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and Clemson ran for 471 yards. Three Tigers had at least 100 yards rushing, the first time theyve done that since 2006. In addition to Etienne „ who scored on runs of 59, 3 and 70 yards „ Lyn-J Dixon rushed for 163 yards and Adam Choice had 128. Dixon had touchdown runs of 65 and 52 yards, and Choice had a 64-yard TD run. Trevor Lawrence was 20 of 25 for 175 yards with a 55-yard touchdown pass to Justyn Ross and a 20-yarder to Tee Higgins in about 2 1/2 quarters before leaving with the score out of hand. This was the freshmans second start, and first on the road. They helped the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) open with six victories for the fourth straight year. In each of the previous three seasons they did it, they won the ACC and reached the College Football Playoff. Sam Hartman was 7 for 20 for 74 yards with an interception, and Nick Sciba kicked a 25yard field goal for Wake Forest (3-3, 0-2).NO. 9 W. VIRGINIA 38, KANSAS 22MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) „ Will Grier threw four touchdown passes, and committed four turnovers, and West Virginia beat Kansas. West Virginia (5-0, 3-0 Big 12) has won its first five games for the second time in three seasons. The Mountaineers had no trouble moving the ball but Griers efforts to throw into tight coverage near the goal line cost his team plenty of points. The Heisman Trophy hopeful was intercepted three times in the first half either in the end zone or at the goal line, two of them by cornerback Hasan Defense. All three of Griers interceptions occurred when West Virginia had driven inside the Kansas 15-yard line. Kansas (2-4, 0-3) entered the game leading the Big 12 with eight interceptions, including three returned for touchdowns. Grier also had a third-quarter fumble on a scramble. West Virginia had committed six total turnovers in its previous four games.NO. 15 MICHIGAN 42, MARYLAND 21ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) „ Shea Patterson threw for a season-high 282 yards and three touchdowns for Michigan The Wolverines (5-1, 3-0 Big Ten) fell behind late in the first quarter and didnt take the lead again until midway through the second quarter. They scored 24 straight points to take control and added another TD and two-point conversion with 6:37 remaining to seal their fifth straight victory. The Terrapins (3-2, 1-1) went ahead on Ty Johnsons 98-yard kickoff return with 1:10 left in the first half, but they didnt score again until early in the fourth quarter. Patterson completed 19 of 27 passes and had one interception, a pass that went off tight end Zach Gentrys hands.NORTHWESTERN 29, NO. 20 MICHIGAN STATE 19EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) „ Clayton Thorson threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns and Northwestern recovered from another second-half slip to beat Michigan State. The Spartans (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) entered with the nations top-ranked run defense and held Northwestern (2-3, 2-1) to 8 yards on the ground, but it didnt matter. The Wildcats moved the ball consistently well through the air, and Michigan States offense was mostly inept. Thorson threw a 21-yard scoring pass to Cameron Green with 15 seconds left in the third, and a 2-point conversion gave Northwestern a 22-19 lead. The Wildcats missed a field goal with 6:41 to play, but Michigan State went 15 yards backward on the ensuing possession and had to punt. The Spartans held again defensively, and on the next possession, they had second-and-1 from their own 11. After two near-sacks, running back Connor Heyward was stopped on fourth down.

(AP) „ Wide receiver Laviska Shenault scored four touchdowns and Colorado beat Arizona State for just the second time in the programs history. The Buffaloes (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) overcame the ejection of star linebacker Nate Landman in the second quarter and stifled Arizona State running back Eno Benjamin in the second half. Benjamin, who set a school record a week ago with 312 yards against Oregon State, finished with 120 yards and two touchdowns. But he managed just 23 yards after halftime. Shenault scored on a pair of 1-yard runs off direct snaps and caught TD passes of 3 and 30 yards from Steven Montez, who threw for 328 yards. Shenault caught 13 passes for 127 yards and ran five times for 13 yards. The Sun Devils (3-3, 1-2) are still looking for their first road win under new coach Herm Edwards.NO. 23 N.C.

But the Eagles (4-2, 1-1) responded with 20 straight points, including a blocked punt return for a score with 3:33 left. Finley made the clinching play, connecting with Stephen Louis on the right sideline for 21 yards on a third down to move the chains with 1:08 left and send the Wolfpack into kneel-down mode.

He also had a rushing touchdown. With Iowa State missing leading rusher David Montgomery because of an upper body injury, Purdy also led the Cyclones in rushing.

The Sun | Sunday, October 7, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 7 By DAVE SKRETTAAP SPORTS WRITERKANSAS CITY, Mo. „ Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone has seen enough in “ve games of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to compare him to some of the best to ever play the position. Or more accurately, an amalgamation of the best to ever play it. Think the arm strength of Brett Favre and the accuracy of Tom Brady. The poise of Aaron Rodgers, the gritty gamesmanship of Ben Roethlisberger and the intelligence of Peyton Manning. You are talking,Ž Marrone said, about someone that is a combination of a lot of the greatest players that have ever played that position with the way he is playing.Ž Now, the question is whether the NFLs best defense can slow him down. The Jaguars (3-1) head to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to face Mahomes and the Chiefs high-”ying offense in what is arguably the game of the week Jacksonvilles only loss came by a “eld goal to the Titans, while the Chiefs (4-0) are coming off a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback win in Denver. And whereas the Jaguars are allowing a paltry 259 yards per game, and top the league in scoring defense, the Chiefs are putting up 410 yards and an NFL-best 36 points per game. Much of that is due to Mahomes who is averaging close to 300 yards passing. He has already thrown 14 touchdown passes without an interception, and his ability to make plays when everything breaks down „ like that audacious left-handed pass against the Broncos „ has turned him into an early MVP front-runner. He gives you challenges every which way,Ž Marrone said, whether you put him in the pocket (or not). He can make every throw. He makes quick decisions. You get him out of the pocket and he can extend plays. He is athletic enough to run and run for a long way and take it to the house. He has great command, and he has great weapons around him and an outstanding offensive line. Right now, offensively, what youre seeing is that its kind of unbelievable,Ž Marrone said, which is going to be a great challenge. We have our hands full.Ž To the Jaguars credit, the Chiefs are saying the same thing about them. Their defensive front is anchored by Calais Campbell and allows fewer than 100 yards rushing per game. Telvin Smith is one of the games top linebackers. And the defensive back“eld is led by cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, who have made life miserable for quarterbacks all year. This is by far the best defense well have faced ,Ž Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill said, but Im always up for a challenge. The best always go against the best, so well be ready.Ž As the Jaguars prepare to visit the Chiefs, here are “ve dominant story lines:SIDELINED STARSThe Jaguars will be without running back Leonard Fournette who is again sidelined by a lingering hamstring injury, and backup cornerback D.J. Hayden. The Chiefs remain without star safety Eric Berry, who has been day to dayŽ for about two months with a troublesome heel.By OMAR KELLYSUN SENTINEL (TNS)CINCINNATI „ Miami Dolphins pass-rushing specialist Cameron Wake will miss his “rst game since the 2015 season because of a knee injury hes been nursing for the past few weeks. Wake, a “ve-time pro Bowler who has recorded 93 sacks and forced 21 fumbles in his 10 seasons with the Dolphins, wont play in Sundays 1 p.m. game against the Cincinnati Bengals because of the knee injury. Wake, who has contributed 12 tackles and one sack in the four games hes played, was sent to see a specialist this past week, but its unclear if he has undergone an arthroscopic procedure on the knee. If that is the case, Wake will likely be sidelined at least another two weeks. Wake is the third Dolphins defensive end sidelined by a knee injury. William Hayes is on injured reserve because of an anterior cruciate ligament tear he suffered in his right knee during Miamis win over the Oakland Raiders two weeks ago. And Andre Branch missed last weeks game because of a left knee injury he suffered against Oakland, and is questionable for Sundays game. Wake, who has started 31 consecutive games for the Dolphins the past three seasons, will likely be replaced by Charles Harris or Jonathan Woodard as the starter working opposite Robert Quinn. Also, newly signed defensive end Cameron Malveaux will likely play signi“cant snaps because of Branchs knee injury and the release of defensive tackle Jordan Phillips. Harris, the Dolphins 2017 “rst-round pick who has contributed eight tackles in the “rst four games, would likely replace Wake as the teams situational pass rusher, coming onto the “eld on third downs. However, expect Woodard and Malveaux to play more on “rst and second down because of Harris struggles stopping the run the past two seasons. Harris started two games his rookie season, and Miamis coaches have been encouraged by the progress theyve seen from him this season. Wake is one of six starters from Miamis 2018 season opener the Dolphins could “nd themselves playing without because of lingering injuries. Travis Swanson is replacing Daniel Kilgore, who suffered a season-ending triceps injury in last weeks loss to the New England Patriots, as the starting center. Cornerback Bobby McCain, who missed the entire week of practice because of a left knee injury he suffered against the Patriots, has been ruled out. He will likely be replaced by Torry McTyer or Cordrea Tankersley as the boundary cornerback who starts opposite Xavien Howard. Tight end A.J. Derby has been ruled out. The Dolphins will likely use all three of their tight ends „ Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Nick OLeary „ and offensive tackle Sam Young to “ll that void. Receiver DeVante Parker, who is nursing a quadriceps injury, participated in this past weeks practices on a limited basis, but is listed as questionable for the Bengals game. If Parker doesnt play in his second consecutive game because of the injury, Albert Wilson would start his second game of the season and Jakeem Grant would get more snaps. Dolphins will face Bengals on Sunday without Cameron Wake Jaguars stingy D ready for high-flying Chiefs offense NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars NFL: Miami Dolphins THE TAKEAWAYLSU: The Tigers played good enough defense to win their third straight in Gainesville, but they mustered little on the other side of the ball after an opening-drive touchdown. LSU marched 75 yards on 10 plays, presumably scripted, to open the game but never looked the same. Burrow was sacked “ve times. Florida: Linebacker Vosean Joseph had the best game of his career, something the Gators will try to build on going forward. The junior “nished with 14 tackles, including two sacks. His strip-sack on LSUs second possession was an early momentum-changing play.TEBOW TIMETebows induction speech went about like everyone expected. He thanked Jesus, his parents, his former teammates and then Gator nation. I was born a Gator. I played as a Gator. I will die as a Gator,Ž Tebow said passionately at the end of the “rst quarter, drawing a rousing ovation. Tebow was back on the “eld at halftime, recognized as part of the 2008 national championship team. As players gathered for a group photo, they begged Tebow to get front and center. He politely declined. I saw him before the game,Ž Mullen said. Tim was ready to go now. He was ready to buckle it up and go now. He had that look in his eye. He was ready to play.ŽKEY STATFlorida “nished with 215 yards rushing. Perine had 85, Jordan Scarlett added 65 and Franks chipped in 42.ROCKER STEPFranks, who threw a jump pass for a touchdown earlier this season, added one on a rocker step Saturday. Both were plays Mullen designed and Tebow executed to perfection in his day. Franks took a shotgun snap, stepped and rocked toward the line of scrimmage like a quarterback run and then pulled up and threw a 3-yard TD pass to Moral Stephens in the second quarter. It wasnt really an ode to Tebow,Ž Mullen said. It was an ode to score touchdowns.ŽPOLL IMPLICATIONSLSU surely will drop, probably out of the top 10 considering earlier wins against Miami and Auburn dont look nearly as good now. Florida will move into the top 20.UP NEXTLSU: Continues the toughest part of its schedule against No. 2 Georgia next Saturday. Florida: Plays next Saturday at Vanderbilt, which has lost 26 of the last 27 in the series.FLORIDAFROM PAGE 1 werent great „ 13 for 32, 204 yards „ but he made big throws when they mattered. The go-ahead score to Jordan came one play after Perry threaded a 32-yard throw to Thomas on third-and-10, meaning in the span of about a half-minute the Hurricanes went 73 yards for the lead. Im happy people are going to talk about that down the road,Ž Perry said. But right now, its just another game that we won.Ž Deondre Francois completed 15 of 30 passes for 129 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for the Seminoles (3-3, 1-3), who were held to 200 yards of offense. Hes 2-1 in three starts at Hard Rock Stadium, all three games being one-pointers. We didnt get what we wanted, which was a win,Ž Florida State coach Willie Taggart said. This ones going to hurt for a while.Ž The Seminoles had a fourth-quarter touchdown off a double pass taken off the board when of“cials ruled that the “rst throw from Francois to D.J. Matthews was forward, and negated Matthews throw to Keith Gavin for a score that would have put Florida State up by two touchdowns. I thought it was good,Ž Taggart said. For the “rst 40 minutes, everything Florida State did was good. Matthews tiptoed down the left sideline early in the third quarter for a 74-yard punt return touchdown, putting Florida State up 27-7. And the Hurricanes got booed off the “eld on their ensuing possession, the volume of those jeers rising when a draw play got called on third-and-16 as a prelude to a punt. Florida State came in here and took control of this game,Ž Richt said. We found a way to “ght back ... somehow, we gutted it out.Ž Miami striker Derrick Smith got ejected for targeting, and one play later, the Turnover Chain appeared and the game turned. Gerald Willis III picked up a fumble to set up a 20-yard drive where Perry connected with Darrell Langham on a fourth-down throw for a touchdown. Francois was intercepted two plays later, and the Hurricanes cashed in on their next snap when Perry and Thomas hooked up for a 17-yard score. Just like that, 27-7 became 27-21. And when Ricky Aguayo missed 43yard “eld goal with 12:42 left, the Hurricanes were still within one score. The ensuring drive was when Perry went to Thomas on third down, Jordan one play later, and after a more than fourhour game „ and 14 years „ Miami could “nally celebrate beating FSU at home. It just took a spark,Ž Richt said. And before you knew it, that spark turned into a ”ame.ŽMIAMIFROM PAGE 1By FRED GOODALLAP SPORTS WRITERORLANDO, Fla. „ McKenzie Milton threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns to help No. 12 UCF extend the nations longest winning streak to 18 games with a 48-20 victory over SMU on Saturday night. Adrian Killins rushed for 113 yards and a TD for the Knights (5-0, 2-0), one of three unbeaten teams remaining in the American Athletic Conference, along with Cincinnati and South Florida. Milton completed 18 of 34 passes with one interception after accounting for 12 touchdowns „ seven passing and five rushing „ in nonconference victories over Florida Atlantic and Pittsburgh the previous two weeks. The junior from Kapolei, Hawaii, tossed TD passes of 14 yards to Dredrick Snelson in the first quarter and 30 yards to Tre Nixon on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Knights also got two TD runs from Otis Anderson and one from Trysten Hill, a 315-pound defensive tackle who lined up as a fullback before plowing into the end zone on fourth-and-1 and drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for spiking the ball. Ben Hicks came off the bench to replace freshman quarterback William Brown for SMU (2-4, 1-1). He threw a 5-yard TD pass to James Proche and finished 15 of 23 passing for 153 yards and zero interceptions. Proche had 12 receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns.THE TAKEAWAYSMU: The Mustangs lost for the first time with Brown as their starting quarterback. The freshman, who led them to victories over Navy and Houston Baptist in his first two starts, completed 4 of 6 passes for 44 yards on the opening drive, setting up a 31-yard field goal. He attempted three more passes, all incompletions, before being replaced by Hicks in the second quarter with UCF leading 21-3. Brown returned in the fourth quarter and tossed a 19-yard TD pass to Proche with 36 seconds left to wind up 9 of 19 for 84 yards. UCF: Milton, eighth in Heisman Trophy balloting last season, has an abundance of playmakers around him. Nixon and Snelson both had six receptions and eight ball carriers, including Hill, contributed to the Knights rushing for 256 yards.POLL IMPLICATIONSWith a pair of Top 10 teams losing to once-beaten opponents ranked behind UCF, it will be interesting to see where it leaves the Knights in the next poll. No. 5 LSU and No. 7 Oklahoma are certain to slide, while No. 22 Florida and No. 19 Texas will climb after knocking off the Tigers and Sooners, respectively.UP NEXTUCF: At Memphis next Saturday.Milton, No. 12 UCF beats SMU 48-20 for 18th straight win AP PHOTOCentral Florida oensive lineman Jordan Johnson celebrates with running back Otis Anderson after Anderson rushed for a 4-yard touchdown during the “rst half of an NCAA college football game against SMU on Saturday.

The game at Scandinavium was part of the NHL Global Series. Despite the presence of Connor McDavid and Taylor Hall, the last two Hart Trophy winners, Palmieri and Zajac stole the show. Stefan Noesen also scored and Miles Wood had two assists for New Jersey and Keith Kinkaid made 17 saves. Edmonton got the goals from Milan Lucic and Leon Draisaitl. In the new season, Palmieri didnt waste time. He picked up the puck near the boards in the offensive zone, moved unchecked toward the net from the left and beat Cam Talbot inside the far post on the “rst shot on goal still in the opening minute. The Oilers came back on a power play and it was captain McDavid who set it up. The center used his speed to carry the puck up ice from his own up zone and skated around the goal to feed Milan Lucic in front for a one-timer to tie. New Jersey took control early in the middle period with two goals from Palmieri and Travis Zajac in the span of 1:09. Palmieri scored on a power play for his second 2:01 and Travis Zajac doubled the advantage after Talbot lost the puck behind the goal. The Devils clearly dominated at this stage, outshooting the Oilers 10-4 in the period. Zajac added his second in the third after a defensive blunder by defenseman Matt Benning before Draisaitl reduced the de“cit to 4-2. Noesen “nished it off with an empty netter. It was the 23rd NHL regular-season game played in Europe, the 11th in Sweden and the “rst in Gothenburg. The NHL will return to Europe next month. On Nov. 1-2, the Florida Panthers and the Winnipeg Jets will play each other in a couple of regular season games in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.Palmieri, Zajac help Devils beat Oilers in Sweden NASCAR: Dover International Speedway NHL: New Jersey 5, Edmonton 2By DAN GELSTONAP SPORTS WRITERDOVER, Del. „ Christopher Bell has a second straight NASCAR championship in sight. Bell won his sixth X“nity Series race this season in the playoff race Saturday at Dover International Speedway, setting the rookie record for victories in a season. He passed three drivers for most rookie wins: Greg Bif”e won “ve races in 2001, as did Kyle Busch in 2004 and Carl Edwards in 2005. Bell built his record with wins at Kentucky, New Hampshire, Iowa and twice at Richmond and expected to add a few more as he chases a championship. Were in really good shape,Ž Bell said. The 2017 Truck Series champion, Bell won the “rst stage Saturday and was never in any serious trouble driving the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, leading 110 of 200 laps. Its been a career year for me,Ž Bell said. All credit to Joe Gibbs Racing. We have really fast race cars every time I go to the racetrack.Ž He was the only driver headed into the race who secured a spot in the semi“nal round. Ross Chastain, Ryan Truex, Ryan Reed and Brandon Jones all failed to advance. Bell, Justin Allgaier, Daniel Hemric, Cole Custer, Elliott Sadler, Tyler Reddick, Austin Cindric and Matt Tifft are still in the running for the championship when the series picks up in two weeks at Kansas. Ill be just as sharp whenever we get to Kansas as I was today,Ž Bell said. The playoff drivers in the round of eight know there is only one sure way to knock off Bell. It would be nice to win a race,Ž Custer said. I think well have a shot to do it.Ž Custer was second at Dover, followed by Allgaier, Ryan Preece and Spencer Gallagher. The 23-year-old Bell this season became the “rst series regular with a threerace winning streak since Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 1999. Kyle Busch did it four times between 2008 and 2016, but he was also running fulltime in the Cup Series. I dont think its any of our championships to lose,Ž Bell said. It boils down to the last race. It all boils down to one run at Homestead who the champion is.Ž Bell ran a pair of K&N races and seven Trucks events in 2015, winning for the “rst time on the dirt at Eldora. He showed enough promise to land a full-time truck ride with Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2016, winning just once but “nishing in the top 10 in 19 of 23 events. Last season was the “rst of consecutive breakout seasons for Bell. He won “ve times and “nished in the top “ve 15 times, and he clinched the championship by “nishing second at Homestead. Bell moved up yet again in 2018, landing a 23-race X“nity deal with JGR after running just eight times in the series, including a win at Kansas in 2017. I think his future in the sport is big,Ž crew chief Jason Ratcliff said. I think it can go as far as he wants it to go.ŽBell sets Xfinity rookie record at Dover with 6th victory Christopher Bell poses with the trophy as he celebrates in Victory Lane after his win.
