The board eventually decided to postpone a decision on whether the county would pay $425,625 toward the $13.2 million project. Called Verandas III, the project on Airport Road would provide 56 units of housing to low-income households of any age. ÂI canÂt vote for something when these numbers donÂt make sense,ÂŽ said Commissioner Joe Tiseo. Tiseo calculated that the cost was $235,000 per unit with most of the units being oneand two-bedroom. The median cost of a single-family home in the county is $260,000, he said. Brian Evjen of the developer, Norstar Development USA, offered many reasons why low-income housing can be so expensive. The buildings are expected to survive at least 50 years, and to be hurricane-proof. The Punta Gorda Housing Authority would not have lost so many units of affordable housing in Hurricane Charley if the buildings were constructed to higher standards, Evjen said. Also, he said, wealthy investors, including banks, require a lot of guarantees to protect their investment. That dr ives up the cost of administration, insurance and monitoring. Commissioner Bill Truex, who owns a construction company, acknowledged that costs are going up due to new international tariffs on steel, to labor shortages, and to high demand. ÂThe thing that bothers me is the developer fee,ÂŽ he said of the $1.7 million expense. Norstar gets 75 percent and the housing authority, 25 percent. ÂI donÂt want to say no to this, but IÂm certainly not ready to say yes,ÂŽ Truex said. The problem for the housing authority is that without county funding, the odds drop PHOTO PROVIDED BY MEREDITH W.

ÂWe can have two different outcomes,ÂŽ she told the South Manasota/Sandpiper Key Association. The group invited Fanara, a Mote Marine Laboratory scientist, to be a guest speaker on red tide. She explained how the winds and rains of hurricanes and tropical storms can churn up waters, dispersing and breaking up the algae cells. That could help end the red tide bloom thatÂs been hanging around offshore since November 2018, and has been killing marine life and driving away beachgoers in Englewood since mid-June. But the exact opposite result is By BRENDAN FARRINGTON and TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Â„ A fast and furious Hurricane Michael sped toward the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday with 120 mph winds and a potential storm surge of 13 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to get out or board up. Drawing energy from the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the storm strengthened rapidly into a potentially devastating Category 3 by evening. It was expected to blow ashore around midday Wednesday near Panama City Beach, along a lightly populated stretch of Â“shing villages and white-sand spring-break beaches. While Florence took Â“ve days between the time it turned into a hurricane and the moment it rolled into the Carolinas, Michael gave Florida what amounted to two daysÂ notice. It developed into a hurricane on Monday, and by Tuesday, more than 180,000 people were under mandatory evacuation orders. ÂWe donÂt know if itÂs going to wipe out our house or not,ÂŽ Jason McDonald, of Panama City, said as he and his wife drove north into Hurricane Michael draws in heavy waves here, heads for PanhandleHighly dangerous Category 3 storm closing in on Florida Panhandle, winds of 120 mph Red tide answers prove difficultManasota Key Association learns about bloom from state scientist SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYMote Marine Laboratory sta scientist Tracy Fanara helped educate members of the South Manasota/ Sandpiper Key Association on red tide research Tuesday.MICHAEL | 6By ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITERNORTH PORT Â„ Regional residents who need medical screenings can get that opportunity Saturday thanks to a partnership between the Universal Crescent Clinic and Hope for North Port. The clinic, which operates out of Sarasota, is operated by volunteers. One of the members on the board is Ruta Maria Jouniari, who said the idea originated two years ago. ÂWe decided to give back to the community,ÂŽ Jouniari said. Jouniari is running for Sarasota County commissioner, but has been active in the organization. Dr. Shahnaz Ahmed, who volunteers at the clinic, is president of the board. Ahmed said where she comes from, there is not much care for those who are sick. When she arrived in the United States, she expected that everyone had health insurance, but that idea quickly changed after she went into private practice. Her Â“rst patient was an example of those who worked, but could not access health insurance. ÂBecause she was sick, she was Â“red,ÂŽ Ahmed said. When the patient came to Ahmed, the clinic was hosting an open house and her mother asked if Ahmed could see what was wrong. During the screening, Ahmed determined the patient was suffering from an issue in her thyroid, and Ahmed was able to get her help. She has been providing care to those who need it for the last two years and wanted to do something to HOUSING | 7 TIDE | 7Hope for North Port to provide health screenings SaturdayPHOTO PROVIDEDIn Immokalee, the clinic provided on-site dispensing of medication.

By BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERUp to 700 or more children will beneÂ“t this Christmas from the Salvation ArmyÂs Angel Tree program. The program asks local businesses to put up Christmas trees with childrenÂs names, and their wish list, attached. Donors can take a tag off the tree and purchase items for the child, so the family can have a Christmas. Families can sign up now for the program, which supports infants to those 10 years old. ÂThe most touching thing I think IÂve seen, especially in the last year,ÂŽ said Colette Koltay, publicist for the Salvation Army Charlotte and DeSoto County, Âare the families that will call and say they have three or four kids sleeping in one bed, and instead of asking for toys for their kids, they ask for mattresses or bedding.ÂŽ Last year, the program was estimated to have helped 750 children and 300 families between Charlotte and DeSoto counties. According to the Salvation Army, numbers are estimated to be the same for the upcoming holiday season. ÂWithout the Angel Tree program in place, these 350 families, 700 children that would probably not have a Christmas,ÂŽ Koltay said. Registration is currently open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. now through Thursday at the Salvation Army, 2120 Lovelace Blvd. To register, one must have current proof of income, current proof of all expenses, current proof of address, birth certiÂ“cates for all children, and picture ID for the adults.

By WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA Â„ A potentially expensive water war will continue after a mediation session between the parties reached an impasse Monday. There was hope that the par ties to the litigation Â„ the Peace River/ Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority and the Southwest Florida Water Management District, commonly known as Swiftmud, on one side and the Polk County Water Cooperative on the other Â„ could reach a mediated settlement around a proposal made by Brian Armstrong, executive director of Swiftmud. Two weeks ago, Armstrong suggested a plan that would get Polk involved in a project under development in Hillsborough County that has the potential to solve PolkÂs future water needs. ArmstrongÂs plan met with a positive reception according to reporting by the Lakeland Ledger, leading ofÂ“cials to believe an agreement to end the pending litigation could be reached. Armstrong also suggested that the parties could put the litigation on hold while the details were worked out. That was not to be as Polk rejected ArmstrongÂs proposal during the Monday mediation session, according to Pat Lehman, executive director of the authority. ÂItÂs unfortunate that the litigation was not set aside as proposed by the District,ÂŽ Lehman wrote in an email. ÂPursuing the DistrictÂs proposed regional water supply project would have been a much wiser use of public funds.ÂŽ Lehman indicated that the authorityÂs board has approved $500,000 to prepare for the litigation, but expects the cost to balloon over $1 million. Commissioner Alan Maio, who also serves as chairman of the authorityÂs board, reported on the impasse to commissioners during their meeting Tuesday in Venice, without commenting on the mediation session. But, Maio did make the point that during Hurricane Irma last year, the water Â”ow in the Peace River at that time would have been Âenough to supply our four-county region for a year.ÂŽ Maio said the authorityÂs plans for the third reservoir and additional withdrawals would allow the authority to Âbe ahead of the game,ÂŽ referring to anticipated future demands. A year ago, the authority Â“led an application with the authority for a permit to withdraw up to 258 million gallons of water a day from the Peace River to meet the future needs of its customers. Swiftmud did grant the permit, but on the last day of a 21-day comment period, Polk responded with a lawsuit, joined by the countyÂs Â“ve cities, challenging the permit. Polk, with its many municipalities and where the headwaters of the Peace River originate, is looking to the river as its future water supply and sees the authorityÂs plan to withdraw additional supplies as a threat to its own plans. HillsboroughÂs project, a complicated process, essentially involves injecting reclaimed water into the saltwater zone of the aquifer and raising the freshwater supply table upstream from Polk County. Lehman has said that Hillsborough is supportive of the idea that Polk County join the project. An administrative hearing in the litigation before an administrative law judge is scheduled to begin Jan. 28 and continue until Feb. 15.Email: email@example.comImpasse declared in water war litigationCandidate forumLocal Democrats are holding a candidate forum at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at St. DavidÂs Episcopal Church, 401 S.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018VIEWPOINTPublisher Â„ Glen Nickerson Executive editor Â„ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor Â„ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor Â„ John Hackworth Email letters to firstname.lastname@example.orgOUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Carey has right vision for Punta GordaEditor: Debby Carey for Punta Gorda City Council is an idea. ItÂs an idea perfect for this period of our small cityÂs 131-year history. Punta Gorda has evolved into the great small city that it is known for today, a consensus winner of one of the best places to retire and a charming waterfront community. All of our residents know how fortunate we are to live here. Those residents locally born and raised should know how lucky they are, though they have no reference of comparison. Most residents were born and raised elsewhere, had successful careers usually at varied locations throughout the country and perhaps the world, and then discovered the Hibiscus City. We all heartily embrace this divine community, getting involved in volunteer service activities and very much outspoken about the future and direction of the city. Due to either good luck or perhaps extensive research seeking a retirement community to live their remaining lives, Punta Gorda is the enthusiastic choice of all our residents. Debby Carey is an idea to provide new transparent leadership for Punta GordaÂs future. An idea to foster citizen debate on the CitizenÂs Master Plan. She wants to see tighter architectural review for the central commercial zoning with a design improvement from the generic LEGO block Springhill Suites recently constructed. Let this idea blossom by giving Debby Carey your vote on Nov. 6 for Punta Gorda Council.Carl Parsons Punta GordaBeer here? CanÂt drink just oneEditor: I like beer. I like it so much that IÂve never been able to stop at one beer. I have liked beer so much that I would black out every time I had one. Because I just canÂt stop at one. One is too many and 100Âs not enough. Thank God I found a local 12-step program that helps me understand why I canÂt stop at one. From what IÂve seen of KavanaughÂs anger regarding his use of alcohol, he drinks to excess and he also has to admit it to himself Â“rst. IÂll pray for Judge Kavanaugh and hope he Â“nds an answer to his anguish. Supreme Court justice? I donÂt think so.Arthur Falbo Port CharlotteDebby Carey will work for youEditor: I have known and worked with Debby Carey, candidate for Punta Gorda City Council, for the past several years. She served as secretary during my tenure as president of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association (PGICA) Board. Near the end of my tenure, I had the opportunity to personally nominate Debby as president-elect as I had been very impressed by her team skills and all of the efforts she made to help the PGICA and the community. My experience with Debby at the PGICA and afterwards has led me to conclude that: Â€ She listens to my concerns. Â€ She seeks to understand my concerns. Â€ She provides a teamwork approach towards resolving any problem. Unfortunately, my experience with the incumbent has not been the same. Carey is a very bright, energetic and motivated citizen of Punta Gorda. She wants and solicits the communityÂs input. Please let your vote count for Debby Carey in the general election on Nov. 6.Don McCormick Punta GordaVoting against school taxEditor: I am writing in regards to the proposed 1 mill tax. I have seen this reference to a medianvalued home is $113,495, less homestead exemption, and would add $89 per year to taxes. This is misleading. I would like to see the percentage of homes in Charlotte C ounty valued at $113,495. I donÂt know one person with a home with such a low value. The reality is that this tax will cost most people from $250-$400 per year in additional taxes, and for many people, much more. They also state it is for four years. Now, we should all know that just like the penny sales tax, as soon as the four years goes by, it will be put up for referendum again and most likely be voted in. So this will end up a permanent tax on your home in addition to the already very high taxes we pay. I know retired people say they shouldnÂt pay, but in Charlotte County I believe the percentage of retirees is somewhere around 65 percent, so that wouldnÂt work. Most retired people live on a Â“xed income. It would be nice if I ran short of money and could just go out and add a tax to make up the difference for myself. Sadly, we, the people, have to live on what we have, we donÂt have options to have others pay for our poor judgment and spending more than is coming in. I vote Âno,ÂŽ and everyone I know is voting no also.Pamela L. Gross Punta GordaCartoons should promote loveEditor: I recently re-subscribed to your newspaper but am already having second thoughts. So far, your editorial ÂcartoonsÂŽ have all been used to promote hatred. Surely you realize that nothing good ever comes from hate. 100 percent of what we call good is based upon love.Duane Hartline Rotonda WestVote ÂyesÂ to retain the bestEditor: As a retired teacher from Charlotte County, I urge our citizens to vote Âyes for success,ÂŽ which is the very last item on the ballot. The 1-mill increase will barely impact our individual budgets but will have signiÂ“cant and beneÂ“cial impact to our school system. The number of staff who have moved to Sarasota County for a profound salary increase is not only staggering, it is tragic. No fault lies with the individuals who have made this decision. The fault is in a system that has been forced to cut positions (teaching, staff support, bus drivers) and reduce expenditures for necessary supplies. By voting Âyes for success,ÂŽ you will be helping to mitigate this problem. The increase in operating revenue will go toward competitive salaries, additional school security, and enhancements in many initiatives such as art, music, STEM and athletics. Our students deserve much more than classrooms staffed with full-time substitute teachers. Despite years of Âdoing more with less,ÂŽ the school system can no longer support this way of doing business. Help solve this issue by voting Âyes for successÂŽ so we can attract and retain the very best.Martha Ann Savard Port Charlotte A decade ago, Sarasota County transformed an overgrown railroad line into a quiet, car-free biking/ pedestrian path between Venice and the Palmer Ranch area of Sarasota. The connection between communities did not come all at once. New bridges had to replace rickety rail crossings across Dona and Roberts bays in Nokomis. Another was needed at a creek in Osprey. Later came the U.S. 41 Overpass linking the mainland trail with the island of Venice and its 10-mile-long Venetian Waterway Park trail system. From opening day, the trailÂs popularity grew. Forty-thousand users became 60,000, 80,000 and 100,000. Ten years after it opened, estimates indicate 225,000 cyclists, joggers, walkers, strollers, roller-bladers, etc., use the Legacy Trail every year. Next to our beautiful beaches, this makes the Legacy Trail the most-used public park in Sarasota County. The numbers could double, triple, etc., if county voters approve a referendum on this yearÂs General Election ballot to extend the current 10.5-mile trail all the way to downtown Sarasota and create a 20-mile-long public pathway. The referendum also includes funding to improve trail ties to North Port, which, by unfortunate turn of history, was never linked by rail to its neighboring communities. The Â“rst of six special items on Sarasota CountyÂs ballot (on the second page after the mishmash of state Constitutional amendments) asks voter approval of both projects.The ExtensionIf the answer is Âyes,ÂŽ the county would buy the right of way from CSX Transportation, then rip up 8.5 miles of track and replace it with a 12-foot-wide paved path. Overpasses would be built across busy Clark and Bee Ridge roads. Parking areas would be added along the way. Rest stops, benches and restrooms would be installed. In addition, $2 million would be set aside to facilitate connections for North Port residents through Deer Prairie Creek Preserve or the Carlton Preserve. The exact route and scope will be determined later, but the project has been endorsed by the North Port City Commission and the Chamber of Commerce.The financesNo doubt, this is pricey. Sarasota County would issue 20-year bonds of up to $65 million. However, the Â“nal price tag could be lowered by federal and state grants, which have come in the past. The Legacy Trail is due to receive $7.5 million in state pedestrian trail funding, so cost relief is not only possible, but likely, we believe. Nevertheless, county ofÂ“cials are legally bound to advertise the top-end number, which includes Â“nancing costs. The bottom line for residents is an additional $8 per year for every $100,000 in assessed ad valorem property value. The assessed value includes Homestead exemptions; it is not the market value. Double the tax for a home assessed for $200,000. Etc.The valueWhatÂs a park worth to a community? WhatÂs Manasota Beach or Siesta Key Beach worth to residents and visitors? This long, thin ribbon of park promotes healthy lifestyles, pedestrian/bike safety, social interaction, community connections and the economy of an area that depends on tourism and snowbirds. The Legacy Trail attracts visitors and keeps them coming back. It enables healthy recreation for residents and tourists, individuals and families. Free for all to use. ItÂs a quiet place to experience whatÂs left of our natural environment and encounter wildlife. ItÂs a safe place to walk or ride Â„ a secure, friendly, quiet recreation oasis. No cars and trucks; no car/truck noise and fumes; no car/bicycle accidents. The Legacy Trail already makes a unique connection between our communities. When extended, it the would create a 30-mile-long, car trafÂ“c-free pedestrian network linking South County-Venice and North County-Sarasota. We expect the North Port segment to be the Â“rst of a series of improvements to integrate the regionÂs largest city with communities to the north and west. Relatively small, to be sure, but this is a critical Â“rst step and we fully expect more down the road. As for Englewood, weÂd also welcome more direct connections for residents along the coast. But, again, the rail line ended in Venice. And a marked neighborhood route runs from Manasota Key to Shamrock Park in South Venice. Infrastructure projects like these often proceed one stage at a time until, decades later, we have a long network. Just so, the idea to create a rails-to-trails corridor on the tracks from Venice to Sarasota Â“rst surfaced back in 1991. But it took 13 years to negotiate and complete the initial purchase. More years to pave it, build bridges and connect to the established Venetian Waterway. Now comes the opportunity to complete the original vision of converting the entire rail line. This type of thing doesnÂt come cheap. But it has real and lasting value. It is what makes a community distinctive and special, a signature public park for now and future generations.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. The Â“rms will focus their presentations on an economic and budgetary analysis; the charette process as part of the master plan; a timeline; and an analysis of the cityÂs land development regulations, among other items. Council members will determine their ranking of Â“rms at their Oct. 17 meeting. Save the Date Â… The city of Punta Gorda and TEAM Punta Gorda are pleased to release preliminary details for an event entitled, ÂPunta Gorda: Journey to the Future,ÂŽ being held Jan. 7, 2019, at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center. The purpose of this event is to provide information to and equip participants so they can more effectively contribute to the cityÂs creation of an updated Citywide Master Plan. The event will feature multiple tracks with speakers covering a range of topics regarding best practices in urban planning and development. Registration materials will be available soon. Special Proclamation Â… The City Council named Oct. 13 Lindsay M. Harrington Day in recognition of the commitment he has made to public service in our community. Harrington served on the Punta Gorda City Council from 1988 until 1996, holding the position of vice mayor from 199 to 1994 and mayor from 1995 to 1996. Under his tenure, the city was recognized as the Best Small City in the South by Money Magazine. Harrington also served in the state Legislature, representing District 72 for eight years. Additionally, the commitment of time and talents to a variety of service clubs and civic organizations is recognized. The people of Punta Gorda wish to show their appreciation to Harrington for extensive civic and governmental contributions over the past four decades including his recent honor by the Charlotte County Republican Club as Statesman of the Year. Olympia and Sullivan Intersection Â… Residents have been asking, ÂWhat is going on with the hole in the road on West Olympia at Sullivan Street?ÂŽ We reached out to the contractor FDOT uses (DBI) to Â“nd out what is taking so long. DBI shared, ÂAs stated previously, DBI has repeatedly performed pothole repairs on this section of roadway. Recently, when a repair was to be performed, it was determined that the problem was more than a pothole. In fact, it is a compromised storm drainage system on the entire section of roadway. ÂDBI contracted a sewer viewer to check the drainage structures and as a result concluded there was signiÂ“cant damage to the structure in more than one spot and that the original sinkhole location had a collapsed pipe that cannot be wrapped or repaired without causing a domino of more damage to the aging drainage system. ÂDBI is in the process of obtaining proposals for replacement of a signiÂ“cant portion of the structure. Once we have received and reviewed these, we will presenting several scenarios to FDOT. It was originally thought that we could make the temporary Â“x prior to soliciting bids for a complete repair/ replacement. To backÂ“ll the opening so that the trafÂ“c lane can be re-opened would only cause further damage to the already deteriorating system.ÂŽ The city will share updates as they become available and we appreciate your patience. General Election Â… Requests for a vote by mail ballot (formerly known as absentee ballot) can be made in person at the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections OfÂ“ce at 226 Taylor Street, Punta Gorda, by phone 941-833-5400 or online at www.charlottevotes. com/Vote-by-Mail-Info.

His column appears Wednesdays. Readers may reach him at HKunik@ ci.punta-gorda.Â”.us.PG Council to review master plan proposals Howard KUNIKPunta Gorda City Manager Filling the open School Board seat is a complex puzzle. We need a dedicated individual who understands our schools from a classroom perspective but also knows how to be effective outside of it. We need a School Board member who is invested in our public schools and believes in our teachers. And we need a representative who can make the tough decisions while keeping student success in mind. As a Charlotte County educator for seven years, a mother of three young students and a local business owner with 100 employees, I have all the pieces of the puzzle to help lead Charlotte County schools to educational excellence. I am the only candidate with a masterÂs of education, specializing in curriculum and instruction. From long hours and lack of funding to excessive testing, I understand the struggles our teachers face every day and how to help them. My boys are just beginning their journey in our public schools; all three are still in elementary school. I, like many others, am facing the challenges of being a parent in the Charlotte County school system. Education is a 24-hour process that does not stop when the bell rings. We need a district that families can trust. I am invested in our district for the next 13 years and will use every piece of my experience as a parent to improve the way our schools communicate with families. As a business owner, I do not back down from the tough decisions. We need to make sure our school system is working for the community. I will eliminate spending on wasteful programs that do not directly impact student success and redirect money towards our classrooms. On your School Board, I will increase transparency of board processes and promote dialogue with teachers, parents, staff and students. I will push to have all workshops and meetings livestreamed on Facebook to increase accountability from every community member, no matter where they are or what theyÂre doing. Elected ofÂ“cials must remember that they serve the public. Every week, I will hold ofÂ“ce hours to listen to the concerns and suggestions of any student, parent, teacher or citizen. I will also advocate for citizen and teacher advisory committees to ofÂ“cially incorporate their input into our decision-making process. My goal is to create an ongoing conversation, even when that means answering tough questions. We cannot improve our schools without prioritizing the staff who make them work. I will ensure teacher and staff wage increases are paramount in any budgetary discussions. In order to recruit and retain the best, we need to show our teachers and staff how much we value them. I will stand up to standardized testing by eliminating testing redundancies that burden our students and take classroom time away from teachers. We must ensure that every action is taken with student success in mind. I have been promoting these ideas and more since I entered the race for School Board in August 2017. For the past year, I have shown my dedication to this position by listening to and learning from thousands of people across Charlotte County. And they have shown me their support in return. Hundreds of people, from retirees to teachers, parents, and business owners, have donated to and volunteered for my campaign because they believe that I will represent them well on the School Board. I am proud of their support and contributions. For the short time my opponent has been in the race, she has failed to propose an idea that was not already being discussed by other candidates. She has also not laid out concrete plans to actually improve our schools and affect positive change. It is easy to point out the problems with our schools, but much more difÂ“cult to have solutions to problems. Our county needs an innovative professional with creative ideas and actual solutions. As a young professional that has taught in our schools, sends her children to our public schools and grown a business in Charlotte County, I have the knowledge, experience and commitment to create impactful change in our school system. We Â„ the parents, teachers and community members Â„ have valuable insight and ideas. We need somebody who can faithfully represent each of these perspectives responsibly. Our schools cannot be their best without these important voices. On Nov. 6, I hope you will support a candidate that will make the difference we need by voting Cara Reynolds for Charlotte County School Board.Knowledge, experience, commitment to better schools Cara REYNOLDSGuest Columnist adno=3615920-1 Voted Best Ophthalmologist 2011 2015 Â€ 624-4500www.zusmaneyecarecenter.comadno=3616323-1COMPLETE FOOT CAREÂ€ Diabetic Care Â€ Foot Pain Â€ Foot Surgery Â€ Heel PainSame Day Appointments941-613-19193191 Harbor Blvd. Unit D Port Charlotte, FL 33952Dr. Michael MetykPodiatric Surgery STARTING AT $25,100!!

As of 5 p.m. EDT, Michael was 295 miles south of Panama City, speeding northward at 12 mph. Hurricane-force winds extended outward 45 miles from its center. Florida Gov. Rick Scott warned it was a Âmonstrous hurricane,ÂŽ and his Democratic opponent for the Senate, Sen. Bill Nelson, said a Âwall of waterÂŽ could cause destruction along the Panhandle. ÂDonÂt think that you can ride this out if youÂre in a low-lying area,ÂŽ Nelson said on CNN. But some ofÂ“cials were worried by what they werenÂt seeing Â„ a rush of evacuees. ÂI am not seeing the level of trafÂ“c on the roadways that I would expect when weÂve called for the evacuation of 75 percent of this county,ÂŽ Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said. Aja Kemp, 36, planned to stay in her mobile home in Crawfordville. She worked all night stocking shelves at a bigbox store that was closing later Tuesday, then got to work securing her yard. Kemp said the bill totaled over $800 when she and her family Â”ed Hurricane IrmaÂs uncertain path last year. ÂI just canÂt bring myself to spend that much money,ÂŽ she said. ÂWeÂve got supplies to last us a week. Plenty of water. I made sure weÂve got clean clothes. We got everything tied down.ÂŽ In the dangerously exposed coastal town of Apalachicola, population 2,500, Sally Crown planned to go home and hunker down with her two dogs. ÂWeÂve been through this before,ÂŽ she said. ÂThis might be really bad and serious. But in my experience, itÂs always blown way out of proportion.ÂŽ Mandatory evacuation orders went into effect in Panama City Beach and other low-lying areas in the stormÂs path. That included Pensacola Beach but not in Pensacola itself, a city of about 54,000. Forecasters said parts of the Panhandle and FloridaÂs marshy, lightly populated Big Bend area Â„ the crook of FloridaÂs elbow Â„ could see 9 to 13 feet of storm surge. About 20 miles in from the coast, in Tallahassee, the state capital, people rushed to Â“ll their gas tanks and grab supplies. Many gas stations in Tallahassee had run out of fuel, including the Quick ÂNÂ Save, which was also stripped clean of bottled water and down to about two dozen bags of ice. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, FloridaÂs Democratic nominee for governor, helped people Â“ll sandbags. Several people were taken by van from coastal Wakulla County to TallahasseeÂs Leon County to the north. Wakulla CountyÂs shelters are not considered reliable against storms stronger than a Category 2. Annette Strickland, 75, arrived at a Tallahassee high school. While glad to have a safe place to ride out the storm, she wasnÂt happy that her home county couldnÂt provide shelter. ÂI feel like that they shouldÂve provided something,ÂŽ she said. ÂThatÂs just me. I donÂt want to be ugly.ÂŽ Michael could dump up to a foot of rain over some Panhandle communities before its remnants go back out to sea by way of the mid-Atlantic states over the next few days. Forecasters said it could bring 3 to 6 inches of rain to Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia, triggering Â”ash Â”ooding in a corner of the country still recovering from Florence. ÂI know people are fatigued from Florence, but donÂt let this storm catch you with your guard down,ÂŽ North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said, adding, ÂA number of homes have rooftop tarps that could be damaged or blown away with this wind.ÂŽ While Florence wrung itself out for days and brought ruinous rains, fast-moving Michael is likely to be more about wind and storm surge. As the storm closed in on the U.S., it caused havoc in the Caribbean. In Cuba, it dropped more than 10 inches of rain in places, Â”ooding Â“elds, damaging roads, knocking out power and destroying some homes in the western province of Pinar del Rio. Cuban authorities said they evacuated about 400 people from low-lying areas. Disaster agencies in El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua reported 13 deaths as roofs collapsed and residents were carried away by swollen rivers.MICHAELFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOTallahassee Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, left, helps Eboni Sipling ll up sandbags in Tallahassee, Monday.

In the past, without county funding, the housing authority waited up to seven years for Â“nancing. Commissioner Christopher Constance proposed that the county pay the Â“gure, and then take the money back out of the housing authorityÂs fee, which is $425,000. Constance also pegged his disapproval to a bitter dispute with a prior housing authority director three years ago. At that time, the director refused to work with the county on the purchase of land by the Justice Center in 2015. ÂItÂs time for the chickens to come home to roost,ÂŽ Constance said. Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch was the only commissioner not to offer strict criticism. Deutsch was once a housing authority director in Rhode Island. He explained to the commission and the audience that most of the cost of low-income housing Â„ 76 percent Â„ is paid by investors, not the local government. This spreads the cost out to the whole country, because investors get a break on their federal taxes. ÂItÂs costing the community a relatively small amount of money,ÂŽ he said. Proponents of the project agreed to provide more information to the board, but they acknowledged that the costs are not going to change in two weeks. After the non-vote and criticism, the housing authority board chairman, Dr. Harry Agabedis, expressed his disappointment and hope for a change of mind. ÂIÂm hoping that they see that for a small amount of money, weÂre going to supply housing for the people of Cha rlotte County for a long time.ÂŽEmail: email@example.comHOUSINGFROM PAGE 1possible. The hurricane out in the Gulf could make things worse. ÂWith increased rainfall and storm water runoff,ÂŽ Fanara said, Âwe can end up providing nutrients to those cells if they are not dispersed.ÂŽ The best hope is that prevalent offshore winds from the east will blow red tide far enough offshore not to be fed with additional nutrient-rich runoff. ÂThatÂs what weÂre obviously hoping for,ÂŽ Fanara said. The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission posts daily maps of red tide conditions on myfwc. com. According to the map Tuesday afternoon, only one water sample, collected a week ago Monday at Blind Pass Beach, turned up low red tide cell counts of less than 100,000 and more than 10,000 cells per liter of water. Counts of red tide exceeding 100,000 cells per liter can result in Â“sh kills and respiratory irritations in people. Fanara framed the difÂ“culty and complexity of red tide research. ÂWeÂre trying to study a microscopic species in a huge body of water,ÂŽ Fanara said. Algae cells act differently in a laboratory vial then when they are carried naturally in the currents of the Gulf. ÂRed tide blooms can use at least 12 forms of nutrients Â„ including decomposing (red tide cells),ÂŽ she said. ÂWe know itÂs not picky. It doesnÂt need those readily available surface nutrients.ÂŽ While some would like to pinpoint the nutrient-rich discharges from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River as the culprit behind the persistent red tide bloom plaguing counties from Pinellas south to Collier, Fanara said, ÂData tells us total riverine Â”ows correlate to red tide bloom duration. We have not found that same correlation for any one source Â„ meaning we have nutrient loading coming from storm water throughout the Gulf of Mexico.ÂŽ The Manasota association intends to educate itself on red tide. Association president Damian Ochab encouraged members to take a more active role and join the associationÂs new red tide committee.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgTIDEFROM PAGE 1 give back, after patients died because they could not afford long-term care for treatable conditions. With the partnership through Hope for North Port, Jouniari and the doctors of the Universal Crescent Clinic will be at New Hope Community Church on Saturday. When Jouniari spoke with Steve Lecrec, executive director for Hope for North Port, he was more than happy to collaborate. Lecrec said Hope for North Port started in 2014, providing basic health care screenings for those who cannot access routine medical care in North Port. He originally started with just health fairs, but itÂs become more about routine screenings. Hope for North Port grew out of the New Hope Community Church. Lecrec called Hope the bridge between the church and the community. ÂThe need is growing and the health department is getting strained,ÂŽ Lecrec said. Universal Crescent Clinic will have six physicians and two specialists for asthma and gastroenterology. The group will also have an ophthalmologist on hand while the North Port Lions Club will provide basic eye screenings for children. But not many children are expected at the event since they have access to Medicaid and Florida KidCare insurances. Jouniari said that she expects 95 percent of those seeking care to be adults without health care from North Port along with Charlotte and Sarasota counties. Children who may be a part of the event could be those who need care and are with undocumented immigrants unable to apply for health insurance, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. When Universal Care Clinic went to Immokalee following Hurricane Irma, Jouniari said the group took three pediatricians for the kids there. Ahmed will be at the event and her goal is to help those who need it without the difÂ“culties that come with not having insurance. Ahmed said the plan for Saturday is to screen residents and get them on a health care plan, but also get them resources they may need. ÂPeople have chosen to not get coverage,ÂŽ Ahmed said. According to a study by the Henry J. Kaiser Foundation, some 45 percent of adults in 2016 cited different reasons for not having insurance, such as lack of work beneÂ“ts, the cost of insurance and being ineligible for Â“nancial assistance, or being in state where Medicaid beneÂ“ts were not expanded. Another issue Ahmed sees is that most clinics and health departments work on a sliding pay scale and not everyone can pay that. The Universal Crescent Clinic, as well as Hope for North Port, allow people who need help to come in without having to prove income, or pay a fee to get help. She said this was a way to let them know they didnÂt have to go without care. Ahmed said Saturday will be her Â“rst visit to the area and it will be a way to get an idea of what the patients in North Port will need. Ahmed said the biggest thing they treat for is hypertension and diabetes. ÂI believe in continued care,ÂŽ Ahmed said. Like Ahmed, Lecrec believed it was about getting people connected with the right organizations to get the care and help they need.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERAs Hurricane Michael strengthens to Âlife-threatening winds,ÂŽ the demand for gas has surged in Florida. The American Automobile Association reported long lines for gas stations in the panhandle and some gas stations were left empty from such high demand. Fuel trucks continue running around the clock to meet demand. ÂGasoline outages in the panhandle are spotty, but not widespread,ÂŽ said Mark Jenkins, spokesperson for AAAÂs Auto Club Group. ÂThere continues to be plenty of fuel supply in the state, but getting a tanker truck to a gas station Â„ before it runs out of fuel Â„ can be a challenge during a time of such high demand. State ofÂ“cials say gas trucks will continue making deliveries until winds reach 45 miles per hour, at which time it is deemed unsafe for them to operate.ÂŽ Gas stations in Charlotte and Sarasota counties havenÂt reported outages, Jenkins said Tuesday afternoon. The storm is anticipated to have no affect on gas prices in Florida, the AAA said Tuesday, as Hurricane MichaelÂs forecasted track runs east of most energy infrastructure. Last year, gas prices spiked 40 to 50 cents after Hurricane Harvey made landfall, causing shutdowns of reÂ“neries and oil rigs in the region. Though prices wonÂt likely rise due to Michael, Floridians are still paying Â“ve cents more than they did last month, and 28 cents more than this time last year. ÂGlobal supply and demand concerns continue to weigh on oil prices, which have dragged gas prices higher in the past couple of weeks,ÂŽ Jenkins said. ÂOPEC output remains low and U.S. sanctions are expected to limit exports of Iranian crude. All of this is happening as global demand continues to grow. These fundamentals could keep upward pressure on prices at the pump during a time of year when motorists normally begin to pay less.ÂŽ The hurricane is forecast to make landfall as a Category 3 hurricane in the Florida panhandle. Gov. Rick Scott requested a pre-landfall emergency for Florida Monday for 35 counties. The State of Emergency limits the amount a retailer can the price of goods, such as gas, and canÂt be hugely different from what the retailer charged during a 30-day period prior to the storm, AAA said. Gas prices for the past 30 days have ranged from $2.72 to $2.82 per gallon, AAA reported. If price gouging does occur, it can be reported to the Attorney GeneralÂs ofÂ“ce at 1-866966-7226 or online at http://myÂ”oridalegal. com.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and the Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced the launch this week of FortifyFL, a suspicious activity reporting app. Users can submit tips anonymously online at GetFortifyFL.com, or through the app available in the Apple Store or on Google Play. Once a tip is reported, it will go directly to the appropriate law enforcement agency and school ofÂ“cials. The platform can be used by students of any grade level, parents, teachers, and law enforcement. ÂFortifyFL will allow people to anonymously report suspicious activity in our schools in the next few weeks,ÂŽ said Mike Riley, spokesperson for Charlotte County Public Schools. ÂWhen I spoke to parents, teachers and students following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, I learned there was a gap in communication between law enforcement agencies and school ofÂ“cials,ÂŽ Bondi said. Bondi worked with the language included in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act to fund the development of the reporting tool. She also worked with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas to name the app and create the logo. The students chose ÂFortifyFLÂŽ to emphasize the purpose of the tool, to strengthen and protect against attack. ÂAfter Parkland, I made it my mission to ensure that when students provide information that could potentially save lives, there would be a centralized tool they could use to quickly send that information to the right authorities,ÂŽ Bondi said. The app is designed to send information to threat assessment teams, including the school resource ofÂ“cer assigned to individual schools, Riley said. ÂAny assistance we can get in dealing with possible threats to our students and staff will be helpful,ÂŽ Riley said.New suspicious activity reporting app FortifyFL unveiled PHOTO PROVIDED Flea market extravaganzaCharlotte County Fair Flea Market Extravaganza will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the fairgrounds, 2333 El Jobean Road, Port Charlotte.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS By SCOTT LAWSONNORTH PORT EDITORWEST VILLAGES Â„ A new stoplight will be flashing by about Thanksgiving for a problematic intersection in North Port. Work is underway at the entrances of Gran Paradiso and IslandWalk where it intersects with U.S. 41/ Tamiami Trail in North Port. The convergence of the four-lane highway and the cars coming from those communities have resulted in several severe crashes in recent years. Officials said the builders worked to add the stoplight to the location. It is one of two new stops that will be coming along that stretch of Tamiami Trail on the west side of North Port. Another stoplight will be installed at the intersection of West Villages Parkway and Tamiami Trail before the completion of the new Atlanta Braves spring training facility. It is set to open in late March 2019.Stoplight work underway SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LAWSONWork is underway for a new four-way stoplight at the convergence of U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail and the communities of IslandWalk and Gran Paradiso in West Villages.

He was born in Perevoloka, Ukraine, on April 1, 1926, where he grew up in a farming community, attended school and, as a young adult, joined the resistance against Russian rule. He left Ukraine to go to school in Austria to Â“nish his high school education. Soon after the war ended, Wolodymyr immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada, to start a new life, and while there met and married Iwanka, also a Ukrainian woman who had immigrated to Winnipeg as well. He wanted to better his life and his familyÂs life, and decided to get a degree. He attended the University of Saskatoon to major in Engineering. This took him 5 years instead of 4, as he did not know the English language, and yet persevered, excelled in school and got a Civil Engineering degree. In 1964, he and his family, which now included two children, moved to Indiana. He worked for the Indiana Department of Highways until 1969 when he started his Â“rst international engineering position in Ethiopia. For the next 20 years after this assignment in Ethiopia, he worked in other countries, namely Taiwan, Kuwait, Peru, Liberia and the United Arab Emirates, before coming back to the US and retiring in Venice, Florida. Survived by his beloved wife, Iwanka (nee Wowk); excellent father of Olga (Ken) Tatge and Bohdan (Tina-Louise); kind grandfather to Leah (Jason) Rieger, Ricardo De Sousa Costa, Mychailjo and Miranda Nepip; great-grandfather to Lucille, Calvin and Veronica Rieger; friend of many including Luba Hritzko as his loving caregiver for the last 7 years. Wolodymyr was a kind and loving husband, father and friend. He would help anyone that would ask him for any kind of help, and was generous with his time and advice for anyone that needed it. We will miss him terribly. A wake will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a Panachyda beginning at 6 p.m. today, Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018, at Farley Funeral Home, 5900 S.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 13 By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD Â„ Sarasota County is seeking a new balance for EnglewoodÂs farmers markets. County commissioners will consider changing a county ordinance that will limit the number of arts and crafts, jewelry, health and health services, and other non-food vendors to only 25 percent of the total number of vendors. The discussion is set for Nov. 6. If the ordinance is changed, 75 percent of the remaining vendors must sell vegetables, honey and cheeses, spices, coffees or any other food product, including artisan and prepared foods. The county ordinance now allows a 50-50 split to the products sold at farmers markets. Farmers markets are held along West Dearborn Street on Thursdays from October to May. The nonprofit Englewood FarmerÂs Market was the first in Englewood, opening eight years ago at the Pioneer Plaza on the 300 block of West Dearborn. Joyce Colmar opened her for-profit Dearborn Street Market across the street. Since then other smaller markets have been sprouting up along and around West Dearborn. EnglewoodÂs Community Redevelopment Agency staff has been meeting with market managers in an ongoing discussion to devise a reasonable formula and methodology for determining enforcement. The call for the modification of the farmers markets, CRA manager Debbie Marks said, came from various brickand-mortar Dearborn merchants who felt that the arts and other non-produce vendors undermined their businesses last year. To define the ratio of vendors at the markets, the managers and CRA discussed Tuesday how a 10-by-10-foot space could equate to one unit of vendorÂs space. ÂI have vendors who are paying for five booths,ÂŽ Colmar said. Will that affect the ratio of food to non-food vendors? And how will county code enforcement determine who is or isnÂt in compliance, Englewood FarmerÂs Market manager Lee Perron asked. ÂItÂs a math thing. Zeros and ones. Either it is or isnÂt (in compliance),ÂŽ Perron said. Marks suggested a county official could visit a particular market and determine whether the market is meeting the guidelines at the outset of the season. Reporting any subsequent changes would be the responsibility of the managers, she said. ÂWe need to support our locals first and foremost,ÂŽ DonnaMarie Lee said. Lee manages a small farmers market Thursdays, but she also is co-owner of BobarinoÂs Pizzeria on Magnolia Avenue at West Dearborn. ÂWe need to focus on our town first, community first,ÂŽ she said. ÂThen we can bring in the extras.ÂŽEmail: email@example.comTweaking EnglewoodÂs farmers marketsCounty could require subtracting arts vendors, adding more food Autumn Glick prepares a cup of Cape Coral-based coee roaster Jimmy JavaÂs cold-brew coee at one of the various farmers markets on West Dearborn Street. ItÂs Jimmy JavaÂs rst time in Englewood and Glick said JimmyÂs Java will return. SUN PHOTOS BY STEVE REILLYJoyce ColmarÂs Dearborn Street Market saw a large crowd on its opening day, Oct. 4.

OUR TOWN: NEIGHBORS INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSWednesday, October 10, 2018CHARLOTTE IÂve decided I am very lucky. I have air conditioning, automobiles, TV, the internet, fast food and sewer service. I can call in a food order and pick it up in a few minutes. I can drive to Fort Myers and eat hot Krispy Kreme doughnuts, for PeteÂs sake. Or, I can call AbbeÂs and order a couple dozen glazed doughnut holes to pick up the next morning. How great is that? Every once in a while, I think about what it was like for Daniel Boone. Seriously. How would you like to have been in his moccasins? I guess he could have been content with just living in the civilized towns around the eastern coast of the U.S. But he obviously was an adventurous guy. Even if they had TV back then I donÂt see him sitting around the tube each night watching ÂDancing with the Stars.ÂŽ It would not have been his thing. He had a wanderlust. He wanted to see what was over the next hill. So letÂs think about it. He had no more than a compass to Â“nd his way. There were no roads where he was going Â„ only Native Americans who may not have been too keen on his presence. Now IÂve lived and worked in Kentucky and West Virginia and I can see how tough it must have been to cross the Appalachian Mountains. Not only did he have to climb up those steep mountainsides, but he had to cut his way through trees and brush. I canÂt even Â“nd a kid today to trim my grass with a power mower. Boone and his companions walked hundreds of miles to learn more about the land west of what was AmericaÂs center of civilization. Do you think he had compression socks? How about memory foam insoles? And what did he eat? Of course he had to fend for himself. There were no fastfood drive-ins. No general stores even. So he had to shoot a deer or rabbit now and then. No stoves or microwaves, so he had to build a Â“re and burn the meat to perfection. There were no veggies at their dinner. Of course water was probably more plentiful back then. No one had to worry about industry pollution in the streams. IÂm sure, however, there was probably some bear poop upstream that might have been cause for sanitizing the canteen. But I doubt Boone and his troop thought much about that. I doubt they lugged tents up and down those mountains so when it rained, they probably got soaked. Of course that may not have been a bad thing since there were no laundromats to stop in and wash your buckskins. And, the likelihood of them carrying a couple of spare outÂ“ts is slim considering they had to carry their weapons and what food they could take without it spoiling. And, speaking of spoiled food, when they did make a permanent camp or build a cabin, I read where they used salt to preserve their food. Obviously no one back then knew how bad salt could be for you. They also were not aware that a red-meat diet can raise your cholesterol levels. And, after all the exploring, they had to Â“nd their way home and explain to Mrs. Boone why it took so long.Climbing mountains with Daniel Boone JohnHACKWORTHC E By BRIANNA KWASNIKSTAFF WRITERThe Junior Leadership Charlotte Class of 2019 was introduced last week. Members from the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, and Charlotte County Schools Superintendent Steve Dionisio were in attendance to congratulate the new inductees. The goal of the program is to introduce the students to people, places and experiences in the community, so they return to live and work after they Â“nish secondary-education. To become a part of the class, students Â“lled out an application which included questions regarding major strengths and qualiÂ“cations, ambitions, and goals after high school, etc. From the pool of applicants, 26 students from four high schools were chosen to participate in the six-month program. As part of the program, students will have a designated day to go out in the community to learn about different Â“elds of work. They will have a media day, environment day, history and humanities day, health care day, among other Â“elds. It is my hope that our students develop excellent leadership skills that will enhance their future careers, as well as lasting friendship with their classmates and community members they meet,ÂŽ said Kelly Carr, JLC Chair. Members who have been through the program before echoed similar sentiments: they have learned things they have never known about the community, and were afforded opportunities they would have never gotten, if it werenÂt for the program. Dionisio spoke to the students, before they were introduced. ÂItÂs not about you being a good leader today, but using this program to become a great leader,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt will become networking comrades for them forever,ÂŽ he told them. He told the students that they can never know too many people in different Â“elds, and stressed the importance of having and maintaining a network. JLC Vice Chair Laurie Anderson introduced the class, sharing the achievements and future goals of each student. Hannah Weller is an alumni from JLC class of 2018; her sister, Kaylee, is a class member this year. Hannah said her sister saw how excited she was to wake up every day and go to the program, which made her want to do it too. She spoke to the future class on the impact the program had on her. Particularly, she said, health day. ÂGoing to the hospital and seeing what they did and what their day was like, made me realize what I wanted to do for a living.ÂŽ She hopes to become a pediatrician. ÂItÂs really neat to have a program like this in Punta Gorda,ÂŽ she said.Junior Leadership Charlotte introduces the Class of 2019 SUN PHOTOS BY BRIANNA KWASNIKThe Junior Leadership Charlotte (JLC) Class of 2019 JLC Chair Kelly Carr and JLC Vice Chair Laurie Anderson welcomed the JLC Class of 2019. Kaylee Weller from Community Christian High School joined the JLC program after her sister, Hannah Weller, completed the program in 2018. By RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENTThe students who were recognized last week by the Do the Right Thing program in Punta Gorda knew how to straighten out mixed-up circumstances. Two of them gathered loose cash and, instead of keeping it for themselves, made sure it landed in the right hands. The third reported a threat, Â“nding the courage to overcome peer pressure and making sure the information fell on the right ears. Jaya JozeÂ“ak and Nick Angelini, both 7 years old and second-graders at Sallie Jones Elementary School in Punta Gorda, found money and returned it. Brianna Rossip, 11, a Â“fth-grader at Neil Armstrong Elementary in Port Charlotte, immediately reported to an adult that a classmate had threatened to stab her and shoot another student. The incident was investigated and diffused. The ceremony Thursday, held in Punta Gorda City Council chambers, was the second of the school year for the Punta Gorda Police DepartmentÂs program. Created 23 years ago, it has recognized more than 1,000 students in the Charlotte County school district for acts of bravery, honesty, helping other students and athletic and academic achievements. The observance included the presentation of a $1,500 donation from the Knights of Columbus San Antonio Council 12456. The investigation prompted by BriannaÂs information uncovered that several students had been threatened but had not reported the threats. ÂWe teach the kids how to self-advocate,ÂŽ said Angie Taillon, principal at Neil Armstrong. ÂWe read something every year called the Juice Box Bully. It talks about, if you see inappropriate things, or you see people being mistreated, you need to report it immediately. ÂShe did exactly the right thing.ÂŽ BriannaÂs mother, Jessica Roth, said she was Âvery proud of her. I was very happy she stood up and defended herself and her friend.ÂŽ Jaya found herself in possession of 10 bucks after a $10 bill escaped from the care of Jenny James, a Sallie Jones kindergarten teacher in a distracted rush. ÂI had no idea that the money had dropped,ÂŽ James wrote in her nomination. ÂAs I turned around, there stood little Miss Jaya holding $10. ÂMrs. James, you dropped this money and I just wanted to give it back to you.ÂÂŽ While out on the playground during recess, Nick found a bunch of dollar bills blowing all around. He collected them and turned them over to an adult. He then helped Â“nd the owner of the money, who was new to the school. Punta Gorda City Council members Lynne Matthews, Gary Wein and Nancy Prafke attended the ceremony, along with City Manager Howard Kunik and several others active in the community, schools or police department. The students received trophies, goody bags and a key to the city of Punta Gorda.Money found, courage displayedStudents recognized in Punta Gorda for doing the right thing SUN PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYFrom left, Jaya Jozeak, Nick Angelini, both 7, and second-graders at Sallie Jones Elementary, and Brianna Rossip, 11, a fth-grader at Neil Armstrong Elementary, were recognized recently by the Do the Right Thing program.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com C Page 7 OUR TOWN Â„ NEIGHBORSGood day to all! Did you know Frederick and Jarvis Howard, Union Army veterans and sons of a prominent New York City newspaper publisher, were early residents of the area? It appears they Â“rst came to the settlement of Hickory Bluff (Charlotte Harbor) in the fall of 1873 intent on establishing homesteads on the Peace RiverÂs south shore just northeast of the location that would become Punta Gorda a decade or so later. Jarvis came with his wife and three children, Frederick with his new bride Anna Guion and two nephews. Imagine, he convinced her to not only marry him, but leave New York City and move to the southwest Florida wilderness. They arrived in January 1874. The area was so remote, Frederick had to hire men and an ox team from Bartow, 75 miles upriver, to build his Â“ve-room log house with separate kitchen. Mail and freight delivery were irregular, coming by boat, usually the Santa Maria or Bonnie, from Cedar Key or Key West, often taking three to seven weeks. If Frederick and Jarvis missed a passing boat, the captain would deposit his delivery at Nathaniel DeCosterÂs wharf on the riverÂs north bank, two miles away. Decoster would then run up a Â”ag to notify them and theyÂd row over to pick it up. Frederick ÂprovedÂŽ his homestead, receiving a certiÂ“cate of ownership in October 1880 for 132 acres. Jarvis however, by then, had returned to New York with his family. Frederick and Anna did well with their investment, selling land to the Florida Southern Railway when it passed through their parcel in 1886 on its way to Trabue (Punta Gorda). In 1889, they sold an additional 18 acres to an investor for considerable proÂ“t, so encouraged, Frederick had the remaining property platted into building lots. He named the subdivision Solana, after the sun (Sol) and his wife (Anna). Somehow, it came to be pronounced Salona, which is how IÂve always heard the area referred to. In the 1890s, Frederick and Anna built a stately home on the corner of Howard Street and Shore Drive, which still stands today. This was SolanaÂs heyday, with arrival of the railroad and nearby Punta GordaÂs growth. The area had also become a major producer of pineapples and the communityÂs pride was its military band. Unfortunately, a disastrous freeze in 1917, followed by a hurricane, ended serious pineapple production, and the market was lost to cheaper Cuban fruit. Visit Charlotte County History Collections online to view a photograph of SolanaÂs military band and the Clerk of Circuit CourtÂs website to view the Solana plat. This column appears every other Wednesday, courtesy of the Sun newspaper and the Charlotte County Historical Center Society. The Society exists to help preserve and promote Charlotte CountyÂs rich history. WeÂre always seeking new members, volunteers, and interested individuals to serve as board members. If you believe our areaÂs history is as important as we do, please call 941-613-3228 for more information.From big city life to the Florida wilderness FRANK DESGUINColumnist While curiosity may have killed the cat, the gardener has an equal curiosity that is hopefully tempered with intelligence and research. Such is the case of identifying (or misidentifying) things Â„ like fruit Â„ before tasting them. While a beautiful, fruit-like object growing on a tropical tree may be inviting to sample, if you do not know what it is and how to use it, please take a pause Â„ it could save your life! The fruit in question is the ackee, a tropical fruiting tree originally from west Africa. Over the centuries, the ackee tree has worked itself (with the help of mankind) into much of the Caribbean, Central and South America and even Florida. Perhaps the most famous use of ackee comes from Jamaica. Here ackee is carefully picked and made into the famous ackee and salt Â“sh dish. Properly picked and prepared, it is a delicious dish which I have eaten many times. While fresh ackee is not imported, occasionally you Â“nd canned versions. Sometimes you will Â“nd it in a yard in our area planted by someone who knows about this fruit. On occasion, someone will buy a property with ackee already in the landscape and wonder what it is. Growing over 30 feet in our area, ackee is a medium-sized tropical tree with pinnate 8-inch long leaves. The ackee will bloom up to three times per year resulting in a number of 3to 4-inch leathery, almost pear-shaped, fruits. As the fruit matures, it turns red. Upon ripeness, the capsulelike fruit splits open and three good-sized seeds appear. These seeds are embedded in a Â”eshy, cream-colored pulp that might remind you of brains, thus the alternate name Âvegetable brains.ÂŽ This pulp is the part that is harvested. Now here comes the tricky, potentially life-threatening, part. If the fruit is picked too early and has not split open, it is extremely poisonous. If the fruit has been split open too long and the pulp is soft and discolored, it is extremely poisonous. It is only when the fruit has split open naturally and the Â”esh is Â“rm that all is well. Warning: I do not want to take the chance, and I do not recommend you do. There are people who know what they are doing and that skill I will leave up to these experts. Again, properly harvested and prepared, ackee with the traditional saltÂ“sh is very delicious. So, what is the moral of the story? UF/IFAS Extension does not recommend ackee as a home planting unless the owner is familiar with the fruit. Even then, there may be cases where children and adults accidentally pick and consume this fruit Â… this must be taken into consideration. Unripe or overripe ackee contains a highly toxic poison, so think safety Â“rst. For additional details, please check out our speciÂ“c publication on ackee at http://edis.ifas. uÂ”.edu/pdfÂ“les/HS/ HS37800.pdf Â„ Ackee Growing in the Florida Home Landscape. Ackee when harvested and prepared by knowledgeable people is known and loved as the National Dish of Jamaica. Otherwise, practice common sense and minimize risk in your own yard. For more information about all types plants in your yard that could be toxic, please call our Master Gardener volunteers on the Plant Lifeline on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 941-7644340 for gardening help and insight into their role as an extension volunteer.

ItÂs used to Â“ght Â“res at apartment complexes, two-story homes and commercial buildings. Children got to see it at the Elsie Quirk Library recently.For many quilters, the only thing better than quilting alone is quilting with others. ÂItÂs the fellowship we Â“nd with other quilters that has helped this guild to grow,ÂŽ says Nancy Smith. She has the distinction of being one of the original 12 members. ÂIt really started in 2006 at the Quilters Cottage fabric store. Betty McClanahan started it by getting six customers together. By the time it moved to Lemon Bay Park, there were 12 of us. We were just a bunch of ladies willing to share and teach each other,ÂŽ she recalls. Now, there are more than 100 members. They come from all walks of life and range from beginners to those who have been quilting for decades. What they have in common is a passion for quilting. ÂIÂve seen women come here who never quilted before and never did any kind of hand work. We are all willing to give newcomers a warm welcome and help them learn. In a short period of time they surprise themselves by making their Â“rst quilt,ÂŽ Diane says. She encourages anyone interesting in quilting to drop by St. DavidÂs Church Hall at 9:30 a.m. any Thursday. If you go, prepare to be dazzled by the stunning array of quilts. Each is uniquely eye-catching. ÂThere is no such thing as an ugly quilt,ÂŽ attests Diane. Members of the Sunshine Guild are also diligent in making quilted items for local charities, including Head Start, St. DavidÂs Jubilee Center and the Guardian ad Litem program. For more information, go to the Sunshine Quilt Guild on Facebook or, call president Millie Myer at 309-652-8253. Pattie Mihalik is a regular columnist for the Sun. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.PATTIEFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY PATTIE MIHALIK Members of the Sunshine Quilt Guild display two examples of quilts with a Florida theme. Pictured are, from left, Connie Dowrey ; Kay Smith, Diane McGrath, secretary; Lynn Smith, vice president; Reba Ostner; and Millie Sodowski-Meyer, president. Carol Newby displays some of the quilted tote bags made for charity while Kathie Vincent and Marie Valeri work on their own designs.Members of the South Gulf Cove Homeowners Association gathered trash along Gasparilla Road, their adopted roadway on Saturday. Over the years, the group estimates itÂs picked up 8 tons of trash. Charlotte County provides some supplies and trash grabbers, water and bags for volunteers. Crews have picked up everything from whole living room suites to shredded paper and plastics.South Gulf Cove volunteers clean up Gasparilla Road Right: Tim Bullard throws a rusty rim on the pile gathered by 33 South Gulf Cove Homeowners Association volunteers during the road-side cleanup Saturday. Jesse Harrison, coordinator of the Neighborhood Marine Watch at South Gulf Cove, checks out a hot tub cover that wound up on the side of the road. The homeowners association cleans up Gasparilla Road four times a year between Ingraham and Appleton boulevards. HarrisonÂs wife Linda is the head of the homeowners association. SUN PHOTOS BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHJerry Berg loads two bags of garbage found along Gasparilla Road, from scrap paper to plastic items.

They know working people in Englewood are hurting Â“nancially due to the red tide disaster, and that organizations like Helping Hand are helping people get by week-to-week. These are just two good deeds the members of this club were performing on this particular day. They do lots more. Each year, they provide Lemon Bay High School grads with thousands of dollars in college scholarships, and they send a contingent of younger kids to Wekiva for summer camp. To do this, the club holds a fundraising Fall Garden Tour and Plant Sale. See how it works? This is how the community can help a group that gives back to the community. This yearÂs big weekend is Nov. 16-17 at the clubhouse, which is at 480 Yale St., Englewood. You can go to the sale, take the tour, or both. (Call Cheryl at 941882-2041 or Rose at 941-276-1798 for tour tickets, which are a $15 donation.) If you want more information about the Lemon Bay Garden Club, visit www.lemon baygardenclub.org.

THE NEWS WIRESTATE Â€ NATIONAL Â€ WORLD Â€ BUSINESS Wednesday, October 10, 2018 By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERASSOCIATED PRESSHONOLULU Â„ If you got incessant phone calls last week from a hospital that cares for Hawaiian monk seals, you were butt-dialed. Or, more speciÂ“cally, foot-dialed. By a gecko. Marine mammal veterinarian Claire Simeone was at lunch when she got a call from Ke Kai Ola, the Big Island hospital where sheÂs director. There was silence on the other end. Nine more silent calls followed. Fearing a seal emergency, she rushed back. She wasnÂt the only one getting calls, and people started asking why the hospital was calling non-stop. Trying Â“gure out why a ÂbazillionÂŽ calls were made from one line, she called the phone company and a rep tried to talk her through Â“nding a possible line on the fritz. She walked into a lab and found the culprit. The gecko was perched on a phone, making calls to everyone in the recent call history with ÂHIS TINY GECKO FEET,ÂŽ she wrote in a Twitter thread the next day, detailing the saga. Social media delighted in the tale and some people offered jokes about a certain companyÂs gecko calling to save you money on your car insurance. After discovering the mystery caller, Simeone caught the gecko and put it outside, she said Tuesday. ÂIf thereÂs a little gecko that helps us share the story of conservation, then thatÂs a win,ÂŽ she said of the work she does caring for the endangered seals. Gecko butt-dials ÂbazillionÂ times AP PHOTOThis Oct. 3, 2018, photo provided by The M arine Mammal Center hospital director Claire Simeone shows a gecko on a phone at the center in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. The gecko is the culprit in making numerous calls in the phonesÂ recent call history with his tiny feet. By ZEKE MILLER, DEB RIECHMANN and JONATHAN LEMIREASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ In the latest shake-up for President Donald TrumpÂs turbulent administration, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly announced Tuesday she is resigning at the end of the year, raising fresh questions about the Trump team and about the outspoken diplomatÂs own political ambitions. The news blindsided some key U.S. allies and many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters. And it came less than a month before congressional elections, thwarting White House efforts to project an image of stability, with the loss of one of the highest-proÂ“le women in the administration at a time when womenÂs votes are being vigorously pursued. But Haley, the former South Carolina governor, has often been an unpredictable and independent force in the Trump administration. At times she has offered strikingly different perspectives on world events from her more isolationist-minded boss. A smiling Haley announced her decision at an Oval OfÂ“ce meeting alongside the president, bringing up her own political prospects even as she underscored her continued support for Trump. Without prompting from reporters, she said she had no plans to run for president Âin 2020ÂŽ and would campaign for Trump. Haley, who is 46 and not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector. ÂI have given everything IÂve got these last eight years,ÂŽ she said, referring to her six years as governor as well as her time at the U.N. ÂAnd I do think itÂs good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it.ÂŽ Trump was asked why the announcement was made now since Haley is staying until the end of the year. Instead of answering directly, UNÂs Nikki Haley to leave in latest shake-up AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump meets with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley in the Oval Oce of the White House, Tuesday, in Washington. By JESSICA GRESKO and MARK SHERMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the Â“rst time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court conÂ“rmation. The new justice dived into his new job, asking a handful of questions in the Â“rst arguments of the day following a traditional welcome from Chief Justice John Roberts, who wished Kavanaugh Âa long and happy career in our common calling.ÂŽ Kavanaugh took his seat at the end of the bench to RobertsÂ far left, a visible manifestation of a moment that Republicans have dreamed of for decades, with Â“ve solidly conservative justices on the court, and Democrats have dreaded. His path to conÂ“rmation was turbulent Â„ opposition to him intensiÂ“ed after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago, when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh denied it. In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders. He jumped in with his Â“rst question after most of the other justices had spoken. Questions from Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald TrumpÂs two highcourt picks, suggested they could vote against the Trump administration and side with a criminal defendant from Florida who is Â“ghting an increase in his sentence from just over six years to possibly more than 15 years. As Gorsuch did in his Â“rst arguments last year, Kavanaugh focused heavily on the importance of follo wing earlier decisions of the court. Both men testiÂ“ed about their respect f or Supreme Court precedent, though Gorsuch already has been in the majority to overrule four high-court rulings. Referring to a 2010 decision known as Curtis Johnson, Kavanaugh asked Justice Department lawyer Frederick Liu what the court should do Âif weÂre trying to follow Curtis Johnson strictly?ÂŽ There were no disruptions in the courtroom, and the justices laughed at one anotherÂs jokes. Justice Sonia Sotomayor even appeared to playfully pinch GorsuchÂs arm as she asked a question about the kind of physical force necessary to have a crime be treated as violent under a federal enhanced sentencing law. When the session came to an end, Kavanaugh shook hands with his new seatmate, Justice Elena Kagan. They also chatted privately before the arguments began. From time to time, Kavanaugh put on reading glasses to glance at papers in front of him. KavanaughÂs wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justicesÂ guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaugh replaced Kennedy on the bench. There was a long line of people hoping to see KavanaughÂs Â“rst appearance. Police put up barricades in front of the cour t, but there were few protesters in the early morning.Kavanaugh takes his place on Supreme Court By TAMI ABDOLLAHASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ A new law requires the Federal Emergency Management Agency to investigate how it came to award Hurricane Maria relief contracts to a company with an unproven record. The Associated Press reported last year that the newly-formed contractor, Florida-based Bronze Star, LLC, won more than $30 million in FEMA contracts but never delivered the emergency tarps and plastic sheeting for repairs of damaged homes in Puerto Rico. Democratic Rep. Sean Maloney of New York proposed the legislation, which was included in the Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill, citing the APÂs reporting. The provision passed both houses overwhelmingly and was signed into law by President Donald Trump on Friday.

Page 2 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018STATE/WORLD NEWSBy GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Â„ A partisan brushÂ“re blew up Tuesday amid the threat of Hurricane Michael over voter registration deadlines in the battleground state of Florida. The Florida Democratic Party sued in federal court, asking a judge to extend the stateÂs registration deadline by at least a week. FloridaÂs deadline to register to vote was Oct. 9, 28 days ahead of the Nov. 6 election. Democrats including Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is running for governor against Republican Ron DeSantis, called for an extension as MichaelÂs imminent arrival prompted evacuations and the closing of government ofÂ“ces across the Panhandle. Shortly before midnight Monday, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who works for Republican Gov. Rick Scott, told local election supervisors that if their ofÂ“ces were closed Tuesday, then they could accept paper applications on the day their ofÂ“ces reopen. In his order, Detzner said giving some supervisors this extra day to accept paper registration forms would ensure all ofÂ“ces in the state will be open the same number of days. Democrats are contending in their lawsuit that DetznerÂs solution is inadequate and not equally available to all Floridians. The lawsuit asks what happens to people who evacuate and canÂt make it back to their local elections ofÂ“ces on the day they reopen. ÂThis limited, confusing, and inconsistent solution is not sufÂ“cient to adequately protect the voting rights of Floridians,ÂŽ reads the lawsuit, Â“led in the federal court in Tallahassee. John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, did not say if the state planned to Â“ght the lawsuit, but said that ÂGov. Scott is focused on keeping Floridians safe as a major hurricane rapidly approaches our state.ÂŽ He added that Âthe governor believes that every eligible voter should be able to register to vote and Floridians can go online right now to do so. In fact, nearly 10,000 people have registered to vote online since midnight.ÂŽ Democrats two years ago sued to extend FloridaÂs voter registration deadline because of the disruption caused by Hurricane Matthew. A judge sided with Democrats and extended the deadline a week. But a key difference from 2016 is the creation of an online site that allows Floridians to either register or update their registration. Florida had more than 13 million registered voters as of the end of August, according to the state Division of Elections. Several statewide elections in recent years have been decided by very narrow margins. ÂI do think we ought to do whatever we can to extend registration to folks, especially given the fact that most people are trying to scurry away from these areas,ÂŽ Gillum said Monday. ÂThey arenÂt thinking about voter registration.ÂŽFlorida Democrats sue to extend voter registration deadline MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE2 workers electrocuted at construction sitePALM COAST (AP) Â„ Authorities say two Florida construction workers were electrocuted when the equipment they were operating struck a power line. News outlets report that 37-year-old Richard Hockaday and 39-year-old Gerald Anderson died Monday morning while working at a residential construction site in Palm Coast. The Flagler County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce says a concrete pump truck boom touched a high-voltage line, sending about 13,000 volts of electricity through the men. Hockaday and Anderson worked for Nomad Concrete Pumping, a subcontractor hired for the construction project.

The Gainesville Sun reports that an Alachua County jury awarded $12.5 million each on Friday to the parents of 20-year-old Abigail Dougherty. Dougherty was killed by a Waste Corporation of America garbage truck nearly two years ago. The jury found that WCA of Florida, LLC was 80 percent liable. Gainesville police say Dougherty was attempting to cross a busy intersection in October 2016 when the garbage truck hit her while making a right turn. The lawsuit Â“led by Pat Dougherty and Anita Forester says the truck driver was negligent in not yielding the right of way.Man gets life sentence for fatal stabbing over affairDESTIN (AP) Â„ A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally stabbing a longtime friend who slept with his wife. The Northwest Florida Daily News reports that jurors found Oscar Castaneda-Lopez guilty last week of Â“rst-degree murder, and a judge sentenced the man immediately after that. Authorities say Castaneda-Lopez stabbed Osvaldo Torres-Michua nearly a dozen times at his Destin home in July 2016.

By ISABEL DEBREASSOCIATED PRESSJERUSALEM Â„ In a groundbreaking case, Israel has detained an American graduate student at its international airport for the past week, accusing her of supporting a Palestinianled boycott campaign against the Jewish state. The case highlights IsraelÂs concerns about the boycott movement and the great efforts it has made to stop it. The grassroots campaign has made signiÂ“cant inroads in recent years, particularly among university students and millennials. Lara Alqasem, a 22-yearold U.S. citizen with Palestinian grandparents, landed at Ben-Gurion Airport last Tuesday with a valid student visa. But she was barred from entering the country and ordered deported, based on suspicions she is a boycott supporter. An Israeli court has ordered that she remain in custody while she appeals. The weeklong detention is the longest anyone has been held in a boycott-related case, and it was not immediately clear on Tuesday when a Â“nal decision would be made. In the meantime, she has been spending her days in a closed area with little access to a telephone, no internet and a bed that was infested with bedbugs, according to people who have spoken to her. Alqasem, from the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Southwest Ranches, Florida, is a former president of the University of Florida chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. The group is a branch of the BDS movement, whose name comes from its calls for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel. BDS supporters say that in urging businesses, artists and universities to sever ties with Israel, they are using nonviolent means to resist unjust policies toward Palestinians. Israel says the movement masks its motives to delegitimize or destroy the Jewish state. ÂLara served as president of a chapter of one of the most extreme and hateÂ“lled anti-Israel BDS groups in the U.S.,ÂŽ said Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, who spearheads the Israeli governmentÂs efforts against the boycott movement. ÂIsrael will not allow entry to those who work to harm the country, whatever their excuse.ÂŽ The ministry said that during AlqasemÂs involvement with Students for Justice in Palestine, the club advocated a boycott against Sabra hummus, an Israeli-owned brand of chickpea dip. On Tuesday, Erdan Â”oated a possible compromise, saying in a radio interview that he would rethink his decision to expel her if she apologizes and renounces her support for BDS. ÂIf Lara Alqasem will tomorrow in her own voice, not through all kinds of lawyers or statements that can be misconstrued, say that support for BDS is not legitimate and she regrets what she did, we will certainly reconsider our position,ÂŽ he said. Israel enacted a law last year banning any foreigner who Âknowingly issues a public call for boycotting IsraelÂŽ from entering the country. It also has identiÂ“ed 20 activist groups from around the world whose members can be denied entry upon arrival.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) Â„ PolandÂs president and descendants of Holocaust survivors held a graveside ceremony Tuesday to honor a Polish diplomat in Switzerland who helped Jews escape Nazioccupied Poland during World War II by issuing phony Latin American passports. The ceremony took place at the Friedental cemetery in Lucerne, Switzerland, where Konstanty Rokicki was buried in 1958 in a simple grave after dying in poverty. A new gravestone was placed that describes his role in saving Jews. RokickiÂs actions were a Âbrighter star in that night of black despair,ÂŽ Duda told dozens of attendants. Rokicki was vice-consul at PolandÂs consulate in Bern, and worked to get Jews out of Poland with other Polish diplomats and Jewish activists Abraham Silberschein and Chaim Eiss. During 1942-43, he bought and otherwise obtained blank passports from countries including Paraguay, Honduras and Haiti, and Â“lled them in with names and photographs of Polish Jews, secretly delivered from Poland. Historians believe that 330 people were known to have been saved thanks to such passports. The fate of another 430 has not been determined, while a further 387 were killed despite having the false documents. On Tuesday, some relatives of those saved displayed the documents issued by Rokicki. The ceremony was part of President Andrzej DudaÂs state visit to Switzerland.Polish leader honors WWII diplomat who tried to help Jews AP PHOTOAndrzej Duda, President of Poland, front left, kneels down during the inauguration of a monument to honor the polish holocaust savior Konstanty Rokicki at the cemetery Friedental in Lucerne, Switzerland, Tuesday. MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLDSyrian president grants general amnesty to army desertersBEIRUT (AP) Â„ Syrian President Bashar alAssad granted general amnesty on Tuesday to army deserters both within Syria and outside the country, a move that could boost the return of refugees who Â”ed violence in their war-torn country. The decree, published by state media, said the amnesty did not include ÂcriminalsÂŽ and those on the run unless they turn themselves in to authorities. Deserters in Syria have four months to do so; those abroad have six months. Since SyriaÂs conÂ”ict began in March 2011, tens of thousands of soldiers have either deserted their posts or defected and joined rebels trying to remove Assad from power. The amnesty also includes draft dodgers. The new amnesty does not include army defectors, some of whom are still Â“ghting against the government, mostly in the northwestern province of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in the country. The amnesty could encourage the return of refugees, some of whom have not been able to go back home because they were blacklisted for running away from military service. Other men have feared that if they return they will be punished or forced to join the military.Brazil candidate accused of spreading fake news storiesSAO PAULO (AP) Â„ The runoff race for BrazilÂs presidency is already heating up with a battle over fake news. The center-left contender is accusing his far-right rivalÂs campaign of defaming him with false news stories. Independent fact checkers say Haddad has been targeted by a wave of false allegations, some accusing him of planning to shut down churches and distribute textbooks teaching children to be gay.Group: Poisoning suspect honored by Putin in 2014LONDON (AP) Â„ One of the two suspects in the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in England is a medical doctor in Russian military intelligence who was honored as a Hero of the Russian Federation by President Vladimir Putin in 2014, a group of British investigators said Tuesday. British police say two GRU agents traveling under the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov used a Soviet-made nerve agent to poison Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury in March. Investigative organization Bellingcat said it had used documents and other research to identify Petrov as Dr. Alexander Mishkin, a member of RussiaÂs GRU intelligence agency. Last month, it said that BorishovÂs real identity is GRU Col. Anatoly Chepiga.
The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 NATIONAL NEWSBy RICHARD LARDNERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ A push to give the Justice Department more enforcement authority over the lucrative and at times shadowy world of foreign lobbying is stalled amid opposition from pro-business groups, nonproÂ“ts and privacy advocates. Organizations that range from the inÂ”uential U.S. Chamber of Commerce to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers have raised objections to legislation that would sharpen the teeth of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law, enacted 80 years ago to expose Nazi propaganda, requires people to disclose when they lobby in the U.S. on behalf of foreign governments or political entities. While thereÂs bipartisan support for cracking down on unregistered foreign agents, several of the changes proposed in congressional bills could backÂ“re by sweeping in a host of unintended targets, according to critics. That pushback has effectively kept the legislation from advancing as lobbying groups press for revisions. One of the most contentious provisions would eliminate a popular loophole that permits lobbyists representing foreign commercial interests to be exempt from the law, known as FARA. That shift, one business group has warned, could extend the rigorous disclosure requirements to U.S. subsidiaries of global companies, stigmatizing them as foreign agents even though they employ thousands of Americans. Congressional interest in fortifying the law comes in the aftermath of RussiaÂs meddling in the 2016 election and a special counsel investigation thatÂs drawn greater attention to the inner workings of international inÂ”uence peddling. Most recently, Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, admitted in a plea deal that heÂd failed to register as a foreign agent when he directed a lobbying operation for Ukrainian interests. Prosecutors said he concealed millions of dollars in income for the work from the IRS. Earlier this year, federal prosecutors unveiled an indictment against a Russian troll farm accused of interfering in the 2016 election through bogus Facebook posts that revealed how foreign parties can weaponize social media to inÂ”uence public opinion. Yet criminal cases under FARA have been rare, with fewer than a dozen since 1966 as the Justice Department generally emphasized voluntary compliance over prosecution. Lawmakers supporting the bills say a 2016 inspector generalÂs report found that the department lacked the tools it needed to properly enforce FARA. A violation of the law is punishable by a Â“ne or up to Â“ve years in prison. But the defense lawyers association and the Center for Democracy and Technology, a civil-liberties group, have declared that Fourth Amendment privacy protections would be undermined by a section of the bill that would expand the Justice DepartmentÂs power to investigate possible violations of the law. And an alliance of more than 40 nongovernmental organizations called InterAction has urged lawmakers to repair vague and outdated provisions in the current law before passing a new one that strengthens the governmentÂs hand. These groups fear that the law, if not repaired, could leave nonproÂ“ts open Âto possible politicized enforcement actions and attack,ÂŽ according to an open letter they wrote earlier this year.Objections blunt momentum for foreign lobbying law overhaul MORE HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATIONLimo service lawyer says violations fixed before fatal crashSCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) Â„ The limousine service under scrutiny after a crash that killed 20 people Â“xed safety violations in its Â”eet before the tragedy, said a lawyer who suggested the driver was unfamiliar with the rural road. Prestige Limousine has been criticized for maintaining vehicles rife with violations and for employing a driver lacking a commercial license. The deadly crash Saturday west of Albany also has shined fresh light on the controversial history of the businessÂ owner, a former FBI informant. The limousine that ran a stop sign at a T-intersection was cited for code violations Sept. 4, including a problem with the antilock brake system malfunction indicator system. Four of the Gansevoort, New Yorkbased companyÂs limos were cited for 22 maintenance violations this year, though none were deemed critical. ÂThose safety issues had been addressed and corrected,ÂŽ attorney Lee Kindlon, who represents Prestige, told CBS News in a segment Tuesday. ÂNot all infractions are major. A lot of these things are minor and were Â“xed.ÂŽ Kindlon said he doesnÂt think those infractions contributed to the crash.Nicks, Def Leppard among first-time rock hall nomineesNEW YORK (AP) Â„ Stevie Nicks, whoÂs already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac, has been nominated for inclusion as a solo artist next year, along with other Â“rst-time nominees Def Leppard, Todd Rundgren, Devo, John Prine and Roxy Music. Nine other artists are returning to the ballot for another try, including Janet Jackson, Radiohead and The Cure. Generally, about Â“ve to seven nominees each year are voted into the hall, located in Cleveland, Ohio. Past inductees and industry experts vote on who gets in, and fans have a ballot, too. Winners are announced in December, with the 34th annual ceremony scheduled for March 29 at BrooklynÂs Barclays Center.Young activist to make TV debut as transgender superheroBANGOR, Maine (AP) Â„ An activist in Maine who won a lawsuit over using the girlsÂ bathroom at her school is making her TV debut as a transgender superhero. The Bangor Daily News reports 21-year-old Nicole Maines will appear on Season 4 of The CWÂs series ÂSupergirlÂŽ Sunday. The Orono native will play Nia Nal, also known as Dreamer. Producers say the character is a Âsoulful young transgender woman with a Â“erce drive to protect others.ÂŽ The character is believed to be the Â“rst transgender superhero on U.S. television. Maines gained attention for her lawsuit against her school district after her elementary school said she could no longer use the girlsÂ bathroom. MaineÂs highest court ruled in 2014 that ofÂ“cials violated state anti-discrimination law. Maines has made previous TV appearances, including the show ÂRoyal PainsÂŽ and the HBO documentary ÂThe Trans List.ÂŽBy STAN CHOEAP BUSINESS WRITERNEW YORK Â„ U.S. stock indexes ended Tuesday nearly where they began, as interest rates let off the accelerator following their sharp rise last week. But the modest moves for indexes masked some roiling underneath. Raw-material producers plunged on worries that inÂ”ation and weaker demand are eating into their proÂ“ts. On the opposite end were technology stocks and other sectors, which recovered some of the sharp losses caused by last weekÂs rapid rise in interest rates. Altogether, the crosscurrents left the S&P 500 down 4.09 points, or 0.1 percent, at 2,880.34. It had wafÂ”ed between small gains and losses for most of the day, and roughly three stocks rose in the index for every two that fell. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 56.21, or 0.2 percent, to 26,430.57, and the Nasdaq composite added 2.07, or less than 0.1 percent, to 7,738.02. At the center of the movements were interest rates, which sway how quickly the economy grows, how expensive it is for companies and households to borrow and how high a price investors are willing to pay for stocks.US stock indexes mixed as interest rates take a pause Assisted Living License 127126235 Hoffman Street | North Port, FL 34287 | T heSpringsAtSouthBiscayne.com Assisted Living | Memory Support | Short-Term Stays People are talking about The Springs at South Biscayne Â„ and for good activities and programming in assisted living to specialized care for those with AlzheimerÂs or dementia, we continually strive to provide compassionate assistance and gracious services to our residents and their families. of life and renewed peace of mind that can be found here.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger YesterdayÂs Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a female in my mid-60s and recently have been diagnosed with a cyst on my left kidney. I do not have diabetes nor a heart condition, never smoked nor used drugs, don't drink and take over-thecounter or prescription medicines only when absolutely necessary, which is rare. I also don't like, thus never eat, spicy foods, nor do I drink coee/tea/caeine. I have only an occasional candy bar. I know that kidneys lter out bacteria but am still wondering how could a cyst, or any renal ailment, be bestowed on such "clean" kidneys? Can you please also elaborate on kidney cysts? Â„ V.B. ANSWER: A cyst is just a uid-lled sac, and they are common in the kidneys, especially as people get older. They are more common in men: Among adults aged 50-70, 15 percent of men and 7 percent of women have had a kidney cyst. It does not seem that diet or medication predispose someone to developing kidney cysts. They may arise from diverticula (outpouchings) in the kidney's collecting tubule. Obstruction of the tubule, such as by a stone, may predispose to them, too, but it is not necessary for a stone to develop a kidney cyst. Most simple cysts do not require treatment. Once it is clear that the cyst is not cancerous (rare), it can be left alone, or sometimes may require a follow-up scan to be sure the cyst is stable. Incidentally, the kidneys shouldn't have to lter out bacteria. The kidneys lter smalland medium-sized waste products from the blood and help regulate salt and water balance. Bacteria shouldn't be in the blood for more than a few minutes (bacteria sometimes come through the body's defenses, especially in the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth all the way to the end): There's no reason you should have bacteria in your blood. DEAR DR. ROACH: I nd the warnings about limits on taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) to avoid liver damage very confusing. Regular and extra-strength versions of acetaminophen warn not to take more than 4,000 mg in 24 hours. Other formulations say 3,000 or even 2,000 per day. If I take one Excedrin PM with 250 mg of acetaminophen at night, what are the limits on other acetaminophen products the next day? I sure don't want to risk liver damage, but acetaminophen doesn't cause the digestive problems of NSAIDs. What if you are prescribed Norco? Â„ H.C. ANSWER: You are right that dierent over-the-counter products containing acetaminophen have dierent limits printed on the label. For healthy adults, the limit is 4,000 mg. For people who use alcohol excessively or those with mild liver disease, even that amount is still safe, according to studies, even though many physicians (including myself) would recommend a somewhat more cautious threshold, such as 3,000 mg daily. What's very important is to recognize that many over-the-counter medicines have acetaminophen in them. Also, prescription medications, such as Norco (hydrocodone with acetaminophen, also sold as Vicodin or Lorcet, among others) and Tylenol No. 3 with codeine have acetaminophen as well. People on multiple medicines need to look carefully at all sources to total up their acetaminophen dose for the day to keep their total below the recommended dose.DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 27 years and have three wonderful kids. The youngest is 16. I recently found out I may have another son from a relationship prior to my marriage. The woman never notied me or asked for child support. I found out through someone else a couple of months ago and, thanks to social media, was able to nd him and look at his picture. The problem is, when I mentioned it to my wife, she did not want to discuss the possibility. What would you recommend in a situation like this? Should I say nothing and let it be, or risk ruining my marriage? Â„ Vacillating In Virginia DEAR VACILLATING: I don't see how establishing the truth could "ruin" your marriage unless your wife is self-centered and immature. However, rather than suddenly appear out of nowhere with the news, it might be better to reach out to the woman you had the relationship with, tell her what the friend told you and ask her if it's true. If she concealed the information from her son or from the man who raised him, possibly thinking the boy was his, it could be traumatic for everyone concerned. DEAR ABBY: My daughter, a widow, started going out with men she meets on dating websites last year. She has three children; the youngest is 10. She has a full-time job and doesn't smoke, drink or use drugs. She goes out ve to seven times a week. I have all the responsibility for the children's care, school, church, laundry, cooking, etc. I'm feeling very overburdened. Am I wrong or is it now normal for a mother to go out that much? When she's home, she's constantly checking her texts and social media. Â„ Used In Texas DEAR USED: You are entitled to a life of your own, so stop doing your daughter's job as much as you have been and start doing some things for yourself. Dear Heloise: I read your column every day. I have recipes that call for HEAVY CREAM, but all I see on store shelves is whipped cream. Is there a substitute for heavy cream? Â„ Jerry B., Hammond, La. Jerry, you can make your own heavy cream. It needs j ust two ingredients: 3/4 cup whole milk 1/3 Cup butter Melt the butter. Once it melts, pour it into the milk and stir. You can use your substitute in place of heavy cream, but this will not whip. If you need to whip the cream into peaks, then use a whipping cream. Â„ Heloise Dear Heloise: What is the dierence between bisque and chowder soups? Â„ Maddie H., Braintree, Mass. Bisque is a rich, creamy, shellsh-based soup, and chowder is a creamy soup that has vegetables, meat or sh prepared in a milk base. Hope this helps. Â„ HeloiseMedication not inuential in kidney cyst development Man learns he may have a son he never knew about A recipe for heavy creamHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby
Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19). Becoming you is a never-ending process. ThereÂs something you once would have thought of as a creative risk that now seems like a natural part of who you are. Acknowledge your growth. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The irony is, now that youÂve stopped working for a favorable response, youÂve fallen into a state of extreme favor, to the extent that it almost seems you can do no wrong. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Would you believe some people nd talking harder than physical work? Though you gravitate toward connection, community and conversation, youÂll be dealing with people who donÂt. TheyÂll be glad you came along. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are feeling rather sure of yourself, and why shouldnÂt you be? YouÂve put in the time, the practice and the professional hours, and youÂre about due for some serious payback. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You probably wonÂt be able to shake the sneaking suspicion that a move in any direction will land you in a place thatÂs better than where you currently stand. YouÂre right. This isnÂt bad, but better is on the horizon. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). ItÂs not what you know; itÂs when you say it. And keep in mind that for some bits of knowledge, the best time may very well be never. Anyway, you wonÂt be sorry you used discretion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A place for everything and everything in its place may work for home organization or a desk drawer, but it doesnÂt work for your heart. Emotions are messy and sometimes defy compartmentalization. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). YouÂll be the great mediator today, and your methods are pretty straightforward. You will ask good questions, listen carefully to the answers and get right to the crux of the problem. Then you sort it out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maturity, compassion, selessness Â„ they need no reward. These are transcendent ways of operating in the world, and you donÂt have to wear the behavior long to gure out that itÂs just who you are.

ÂThe Trump Administration bungled the response to Hurricane Maria so badly that almost 3,000 people died Â„ we need to get to the bottom of what happened, and that includes Â“guring out why we gave a $30 million contract for necessary emergency supplies to people who didnÂt know what the hell they were doing,ÂŽ Maloney said in a statement. ÂThis audit should be part of a comprehensive look at what this administration did wrong. We canÂt ever let this happen again.ÂŽ Trump has praised his administrationÂs response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico as Âan incredible, unsung success.ÂŽ Democrats on a Senate oversight committee found in April that FEMA failed to adequately research whether winning bidders could deliver as promised. FEMA awarded the company two contracts Oct. 10 to provide 500,000 tarps and 60,000 rolls of plastic sheeting. More than a half dozen others also bid, but FEMA said it could not provide details about their identity or their bids. It was not clear how thoroughly FEMA investigated Bronze Star or its ability to fulÂ“ll the contracts. Formed by two brothers in August, Bronze Star had never before won a government contract or delivered tarps or plastic sheeting. The company was formed less than two months before bidding on FEMAÂs tarp and sheeting contracts.FEMAFROM PAGE 1 he recounted how she has had to work on tough issues, such as Iran and North Korea. White House ofÂ“cials had sought to put a hold on TrumpÂs record-setting turnover in the run-up to the Nov. 6 elections, with aides being asked months ago to step down or commit to stay through Election Day to avoid adding to a sense of turmoil. Still, the prospect of post-midterm changes continues to hang over the West Wing, and HaleyÂs exit was one that has been discussed, according to a senior administration ofÂ“cial not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. A number of ofÂ“cials speculated that the timing was meant to preserve the ambassadorÂs own political future. A post in the Trump administration has proven to be a rickety stepping-stone to either lucrative private sector work or hopes for higher ofÂ“ce, and the risk to those ambitions might only increase after the elections if Democrats make signiÂ“cant gains in Congress. Trump said Haley Â“rst discussed leaving with him six months ago. The senior ofÂ“cial noted that their conversation coincided with the appointments of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security adviser in an earlier upending of top foreign policy ofÂ“cials. Haley had expressed some frustration that her voice had been diminished as the two men became the aggressive new faces of TrumpÂs international policy, the ofÂ“cial said. More recently, there was the awkward moment at the U.N., when TrumpÂs boasting of American economic strength under his leadership brought laughter at a General Assembly session. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him. The six-month timeline also coincides with a high-proÂ“le spat between Haley and the White House in April, when she drew the presidentÂs ire for previewing in a television appearance the administrationÂs planned imposition of a new round of sanctions on Russia. When the sanctions never materialized, White House ofÂ“cials said the plans had changed without Haley being briefed, and economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested she was confused. ÂI donÂt get confused,ÂŽ Haley said in a sharply worded response to the West Wing. Haley was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month coordinated TrumpÂs second trip to the United Nations, including his Â“rst time chairing the Security Council. A rookie to international politics, the former South Carolina governor was an unusual pick for to be U.N. envoy. ÂIt was a blessing to go into the U.N. every day with body armor,ÂŽ Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One he was considering Â“ve candidates for HaleyÂs job and that a successor would be named in two to three weeks Â„ or maybe sooner. Among those under consideration, Trump said, is former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. Trump told reporters that he has heard his daughter Ivanka TrumpÂs name discussed for the post, but said if he selected her heÂd be accused of nepotism. In a tweet, the presidential senior adviser and eldest daughter praised Haley, saying Trump will Ânominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador.ÂŽ She added: ÂThat replacement will not be me.ÂŽ U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard GrenellÂs name has also been Â”oated for the post, but Trump suggested heÂd rather keep him in his current post Âbecause heÂs doing such a good job.ÂŽHALEYFROM PAGE 1 By BRISTOW MARCHANTTHE STATE (COLUMBIA, S.C.) COLUMBIA, S.C. Â„ Nikki Haley will leave her post as United Nations ambassador with a burnished national reputation. But she also will be leaving public service with up to $1 million in debt. The former South Carolina governorÂs personal finances are detailed in her public financial disclosure as ambassador. HaleyÂs debts include a string of liabilities incurred over her years in the Trump administration and state government. Last year, Nikki Haley and husband, Michael Haley, took on more than $1 million in mortgage debt for an investment-rental property, the 2017 disclosure shows. The Haleys took over a Lexington commercial property with an outstanding mortgage previously owned by the ambassadorÂs parents. That property was sold by the Haleys in January 2018 for $1.2 million, more than enough to pay off the mortgage. However, the Haleys Â„ who also have two college-age children Â„ have other debts as well. In her disclosure, Haley reported she has a personal 30-year mortgage of between $250,000 and $500,000, and a line of credit of up to $500,000. Haley also reported debt on two credit cards as liabilities, one with between $10,000 and $15,000 owed on it, the other with $15,000 to $50,000 owed. Haley reported earning $9,759 as governor in 2017, before she resigned in January to join the Trump administration, as well as a bank account with between $1,000 and $15,000 in it. She also listed her state retirement account as an asset. She did not report any income from her 2012 memoir ÂCanÂt Is Not An Option,ÂŽ saying its value was Ânot readily ascertainable.ÂŽ Michael Haley reported a bank balance of from $15,000 to $50,000, and between $50,000 and $100,000 in rental income from the Lexington property before it was sold. It is unclear what HaleyÂs next move will be when she leaves the U.N. post at the end of the year, but she could transition to a lucrative private-sector job. ÂThe rewards after two successful terms as governor could be great, whether that means serving on boards and commissions or something else,ÂŽ said former South Carolina Republican Party chairman Katon Dawson. ÂIÂm not sure if thatÂs why she did it. But I know those opportunities will be available.ÂŽHaley will leave UN ambassadorÂs office with up to $1 million in debt adno=3618721-1 2006 CHEVROLET HHR ..................LT MODEL, SUNBURST ORANGE ............................. $4,587 2012 BUICK LACROSSE .................ONE OWNER, CXL MODEL, LOADED ........................ $12,887 2009 TOYOTA TACOMA ..................REG CAB, AIR, 5 SPD.......................................SALE! $7818 2014 JEEP WRANGLER... ...............SPORT S MODEL, AUTOMATIC, 4X4 ........................ $21,587 2015 FORD TAURUS......... ..............ONE OWNER, 28,000 MILES, NICE! ..................NA VIGATION 2016 RAM 1500............. ................BIG HORN, CREW CAB, 4X4, NICE ...............................

When the season starts next week, there will be the leagueÂs Â“rst head coach born and raised outside North America and the Â“rst HispanicAmerican full-time head coach. And thereÂs a real chance that before long, someone like Becky Hammon could become the Â“rst woman to lead a NBA club. In a league where minorities make up the overwhelming majority of stars on the Â”oor, thereÂs still a movement to make those same diverse strides in who is calling the shots on the sideline. ÂThe league is starting to move in a direction with the coaches of being more diverse,ÂŽ said Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff, whose father also was a head coach in the NBA. ÂAnd itÂs just about opportunity and everybody wants an equal playing Â“eld. And I think when you get an equal playing Â“eld you know people from all backgrounds can rise to the occasion.ÂŽ ThatÂs what the Suns believed when they hired Igor Kokoskov, a native of Serbia, and the Charlotte Hornets did when they tabbed James Borrego Â„ the leagueÂs Â“rst full-time Hispanic coach. BorregoÂs whose seat on the front row of the SpursÂ bench was inherited by Hammon after she was promoted by San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich Â„ after a summer where Hammon was a candidate to take over in Milwaukee. PopovichÂs team has long been at the forefront of Â“nding talented players in places far outside the U.S. and itÂs no surprise heÂs thought outside the box to grow his coaching tree.

By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA Â„ Ali Marpet is one of the great Â“nds by the Bucs, a Div. III player from tiny Hobart College in Geneva, N.Y. He has started 44 games, at three different positions, since being selected in the second round of the 2015 draft. On Tuesday, the Bucs made Marpet one of the highest-paid guards in the NFL, signing him to a Â“ve-year contract extension worth $10.825-million per year. It also includes $27.125 million in guarantees. The deal makes Marpet, 25, the third highest-paid left guard in the NFL in terms of average salary behind the Jaguars Andrew Norwell ($13.3-million) and the Raiders Kelechi Osemele ($11.7 million). The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Marpet also has played right guard and center. He was moved to left guard this season with the signing of Ravens free agent center Ryan Jensen. The Bucs traded up in the second-round in 2015 to draft Marpet, who was a relative unknown except in some NFL circles until he became the Â“rst Div. III player picked to play in the 2015 Senior Bowl. It was the same draft that the Bucs took quarterback Jameis Winston No. 1 overall and used another second-round pick on Penn State left tackle Donovan Smith. Marpet has been a selÂ”ess player for the Bucs. He began his career at right guard but last season, the team moved him to center. Offensive line coach George Warhop said he believed Marpet could make a Pro Bucs sign Ali Marpet to a five-year contract extension worth $10.825 million per year TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOBuccaneers oensive guard, shown here Ali Marpet (74) signing the helmet of JJ Thararuck, 6, of Tampa as JJÂs mother Tiany watches Friday, Aug. 3, 2018.

SPORTS ON TVBy DOUG FERGUSONAP GOLF WRITERBrooks Koepka had two sets of daily reminders for a season that PGA Tour players voted as the best. One was his annual list of goals that he writes every Jan. 1 during quiet time on the beach, some of them golf speciÂ“c, some of them about life. He tacks the list in the middle of his closet so he canÂt miss it when heÂs getting dressed, packing for a trip or getting his watch and wallet. ÂIÂm deÂ“nitely ahead of schedule on certain things,ÂŽ Koepka said Tuesday. No doubt he was referring to winning two majors, which made him the obvious choice as PGA Tour player of the year. His second straight U.S. Open title made him the Â“rst back-to-back winner since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. His two-shot victory in the PGA Championship made him only the Â“fth player in 100 years to win in the same season the two U.S. majors held on different courses. And he missed on a few goals. One was to not miss a cut, which ended in Canada with a 77 in the opening round that led to a weekend off. Another was to Â“nish in the top 10 in half of his events. And then there was one that made him laugh just to say it. ÂStay healthy,ÂŽ Koepka said. His left wrist was bothering him last December in the Bahamas, where he Â“nished last in an 18-man Â“eld, 21 shots out of the lead. A month of rest didnÂt help. He started the new year at Kapalua and Â“nished last in a 34-man Â“eld, 37 shots behind. Only then did he discover a partially torn tendon that kept him out of the Masters during his four months away from golf. That led to the second reminder. It was a quote from Kobe Bryant after the Los Angeles Lakers great ruptured his Achilles tendon. Koepka set the quote as wallpaper eight months ago so that he would see it every time he activated his phone. ÂIt was too long for me to quote it exactly, but it was to wake up every day and Â“nd the positive because you were one step closer to being you, and to enjoy the moments of frustration because with each step you get better and better, and to embrace those moments,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂI just changed it the other day.ÂŽ Koepka leaves this weekend for the start of a new PGA Tour season, even though the year isnÂt over. He is playing the CJ Cup in South Korea, followed by the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, and then his title defense at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan the weekend before Thanksgiving. This was his one week at home, a chance to more clearly view the happy side to the year. The ballots were sent to PGA Tour players right after the Tour Championship. In the week before the votes were due, Koepka was part of his Â“rst losing U.S. team at the Ryder Cup. One of his tee shots during the opening session struck a spectator, causing her to lose sight in her right eye. He was shaken when it happened, and then the following week when he learned the extent of the damage. ÂIÂm heartbroken,ÂŽ he said at St. Andrews for the Dunhill Links Championship. There also was a report that Koepka and Dustin Johnson, one of his best friends in golf, had to be separated during a skirmish at a Ryder Cup party. Koepka says they didnÂt Â“ght and that he and Johnson found the report to be Âfunny.ÂŽ Johnson was at The BearÂs Club when Koepka won the Jack Nicklaus Award, and they made a short video poking fun at the Â“ght before Johnson congratulated him on winning player of the year. ÂIÂve got one of these, too,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂWell, this bad boyÂs mine,ÂŽ Koepka replied. Getting another one will be no small feat if Koepka chooses to put that on next yearÂs list. He is the sixth winner in the last six years, the longest streak since players began voting on the award in 1990. The most recent winners were Justin Thomas, Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. Thomas and Johnson won three times and took turns at No. 1. That doesnÂt trump two majors by a guy who spotted the Â“eld some four months. ÂSo many guys can take over the top spot,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂItÂs probably the best group of guys that IÂve ever seen, and they keep coming. And you throw Tiger into the mix now. You never know whatÂs going to happen.ÂŽ Koepka never saw a year like this coming, at least not the way it started.Messages motivate Koepka AP PHOTO In this Aug. 12, 2018, Â“le photo, Brooks Koepka holds the Wanamaker Trophy after he won the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club, in St. Louis.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 After spotting Sarasota Christian a 14-11 lead in a contested first set, Nina entered the game and changed the complexion of it. Once Nina took the floor, Port Charlotte closed out the set on a 14-6 run. The set was capped at 25-20 with an ace from junior Kiersten Tisdale. Â(Nina) brings a lot of ball control and an explosiveness,ÂŽ Port Charlotte coach Kevin Krause said. ÂSheÂs an awesome passer and good all around.ÂŽ In the second set it was much of the same. The first half was tight, but Port Charlotte sparked a 13-3 run yet again to take a commanding 20-11 lead. Sarasota Christian began to surge toward the end, but a forceful kill from sophomore Alcia Kowalski, giving the Lady Pirates a 25-18 set win. Port Charlotte exuded a certain fire across the court in the win. From Nina to Kowalski to senior Alani Qualls, balls were being fired toward the Lady Blazers with authority. ÂItÂs huge,ÂŽ Nina said. ÂHonestly our passing has gotten a lot better from last week to this week. WeÂve been doing a lot of passing in practice and I think itÂs showing because now weÂre able to set our middles and our middles are so powerful. ThatÂs an easy side out point.ÂŽ Port Charlotte got off to a hotter start in the third set. An early 14-4 run gave them a 17-7 lead that would carry the Lady Pirates to a 25-14 set win and the match victory. Junior Maggie Poulakis served up three straight aces to seal the match. Qualls led the team with nine kills, adding two blocks as well. Nina finished with four kills, an ace and a block. For seniors Christina Collins, Makenzie Stewart, Samantha DiBene and Qualls, thereÂs plenty of unfinished business as the Lady Pirates look to repeat as Class 7A District 10 champs. If itÂs up to the team, TuesdayÂs win wonÂt be their last. But they enjoyed it as if it was. ÂWe had lots of fun out there,ÂŽ Qualls said. ÂWe were just kind of playing for the seniors and having a good time all together.ÂŽ Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald. com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.SENIORSFROM PAGE 1Port CharlotteÂs McKenzie Stewart (7) defends against Sarasota ChristianÂs Cassie Bontrager (8) Tuesday, October 9. 2018 at Port Charlotte High School.

After entering the game with every intention of contending for the win, the Pirates Â”opped on defense and sputtered on offense with the exception of two late touchdown drives with the game out of hand. The list of negatives far surpassed the positives, but thatÂs not to say the Pirates have put that game behind them, pretending it didnÂt happen Â„ no matter how much theyÂd like to. ÂWe just got out played, outcoached, out-everthinged,ÂŽ Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman said. ÂBut itÂs not in the past. We learn from it still every day. We think about it and get better from it. As young as we are, we have to take every teachable moment and try to extract all information from it. ÂWe havenÂt looked away from it or forgotten about it in any way because there was so many teachable moments. As hard as they are, youÂve gotta learn from them. You canÂt look away from it or youÂve wasted a failure as Saban says.ÂŽ The Pirates had plenty of time for reÂ”ection over the last 12 days as they regrouped over the timely bye week. TheyÂve poured over the Â“lm, theyÂve tweaked their schemes and most importantly, theyÂve shifted their focus to the Â“nal stretch of the season. Needing to win out, to put themselves in the best possible position to slide into the playoffs, the next four games Â„ mainly the matchup with the Tarpons on Oct. 26 Â„ begin their playoffs. If the Pirates win out and beat Charlotte, North Fort Myers would be in the driver seat to win the district with two wins already. In the FHSAA Class 6A power rankings, Charlotte and Cape Coral currently sit ahead of the Pirates, but thereÂs plenty of football left to play. Much like last year, Ingman believes if they can get to 8-2, they have a good chance of reaching the postseason. ÂWeÂre in a must win situation,ÂŽ Ingman said. ÂIf we win out I feel like weÂll be in. We know we have to win every game from here on out and IÂm sure there are some scenarios that may go against us, but itÂs to early to tell. Last year we were 8-2 and we were the six seed. So we feel if we go 8-2 again, weÂll have a good shot to make it in.ÂŽ The Â“rst two teams up are Ida Baker and Island Coast, who will catch a team eager to reprove themselves at the wrong time. The Bulldogs and Gators have combined for a single win and just over seven combined points per game this season. The next two games provide a favorable opportunity for Port Charlotte to regain their mojo and tune up for the battle royale that awaits afterward. ÂThat deÂ“nitely wasnÂt how we expected that game (against North Fort Myers) to go, but our playoff chances arenÂt over,ÂŽ senior offensive lineman Caden Marcum said. ÂOctober 26, thatÂs our main focus. We go there and win and we have a good chance to go to the playoffs. WeÂre looking forward.ÂŽ Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.Tough loss gone, but not forgotten for Pirates PHOTOS BY TOM OÂNEILLPort Charlotte running back Marc Jean-Louis (3) carries against Sarasota on September 21, 2018 at Port Charlotte High School.

PREP FOOTBALL By STEPHEN MCKAYSUN CORRESPONDENTThough the North Port Lady Bobcats hosted Pink-Out Night to beneÂ“t breast cancer awareness Tuesday night, they also managed to give a hearty workout to many of their fans hearts. Throughout much of the night the Bobcats volleyball squad found itself trying to dig itself out of one hole after another. But as the cardiac ÂCats were at their best when facing their greatest adversity, they managed to pull off a 3-1 victory over the DeSoto Bulldogs in a non-district contest. ÂWe have a lot of work to do even though weÂre nearing the end of our season,ÂŽ said BobcatsÂ head coach Chassity Taylor. ÂBut, the only reason we came out on top tonight is because of the Â“ght these girls have. They refused to give up.ÂŽ North Port won by set scores of 25-18, 19-25, 3028 and 25-21. In all four games, including those they won, North Port trailed most of the way. In the opener, the Bobcats managed three early one-point leads before DeSoto took over to lead by as many as Â“ve points. Slowly they managed to crawl back to forge ties at 15 and 16. But after falling behind 18-17, the game took a dramatic turn. With sophomore Olivia Deivert at the service line, North Port reeled off the Â“nal nine points of the game for the come-from-behind win. ÂI just did what I could to help my teammates out,ÂŽ said Deivert. ÂI tried to pick my spots and my teammates did the rest.ÂŽ While Deivert scored a pair of aces during the Â“nal run, she was aided by strong sets from senior Sydney Hoggarth and a pair of kills each by Abby Hutchinson and Zoey Daniels. Hutchinson Â“nished the match with a team high 14 kills while Daniels added another 10. The Bobcats led only brieÂ”y in game two, the only one they ultimately dropped. Game three looked to be an even greater struggle. North Port trailed by as many as eight points and didnÂt gain its Â“rst lead until overtime. First tying the game at 22-22, consecutive kills by Hutchinson and Daniels Â“nally gave the ÂCats a 25-24 lead. Freshman Halee Rhoads blocked a pair of kill attempts by DeSoto in overtime and Hutchinson tipped over the winning point. A 1-0 lead was all North Port could manage in the fourth game before quickly falling behind by nine points. A Hutchinson kill gave the home team its Â“rst lead at 19-18 with Deivert again at the service line. Deivert Â“rst took over with her team behind 18-15. Deivert helped turn a three-point deÂ“cit into a Â“ve-point advantage. Daniels had the Â“nal say in the match with a strong kill to mid-court. ÂBeing behind is sometimes the most fun you can have,ÂŽ said Daniels. ÂIt really gets me going and the team really pulls together when we have to Â“ght for it. We all kind of feed off each other in those tough situations.ÂŽ Deivert and Hoggarth led the team in aces with 5 and 4 respectively. Hutchinson added to her strong night at the net with a team high 5 blocks. The Bobcats will Â“nish their regular season at home on Thursday at 7 p.m. On senior night the team will honor its two seniors Hoggarth and Kristina Sherstobitova.Bobcats defeat Bulldgos PREP VOLLEYBALL 2 0 1 8 1 0 1 0 s p r t 0 3 0 0 1 p d f 1 1 0 O c t 1 8 0 3 : 4 8 : 2 2
Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018By TOM WITHERSAP SPORTS WRITERCLEVELAND Â„ When the challenge arose in August, the Houston Astros responded like champions. TheyÂre doing it again in October. Two months ago, last yearÂs World Series winners hit one of those predictable lulls that every team encounters during the dog days of a season. Maybe feeling a bit overconÂ“dent and invincible, the Astros were caught atop the AL West by the Oakland Athletics, a scrappy squad that sneaked up on everyone in 2018. But just when it appeared the Astros might be in some trouble, they switched on their after-burners. After Aug. 18, Houston went 29-10 to Â“nish with 103 wins. ÂThere is an extra gear that our guys have,ÂŽ explained manager A.J. Hinch. ÂAnd once we hit the postseason, it looks like, as of right now, our guys really, really turned it on.ÂŽ Showing no weaknesses while exposing ClevelandÂs Â”aws at every opportunity, the Astros took another step toward defending their crown Monday by Â“nishing off a surprisingly easy three-game AL Division Series sweep with an 11-3 blowout of the Indians, who were overmatched on the mound, at the plate and in the Â“eld. Houston outscored Cleveland 21-6. The Astros outhit the Indians .327 to .144 and banged out eight homers with making an error. ÂThey beat us in every area of the game,ÂŽ said Indians reliever Trevor Bauer, whose two throwing errors in the seventh inning of Game 3 propelled HoustonÂs convincing clincher. ÂTheyÂre tough, man. They keep coming. We didnÂt play our best. IÂm not sure if they played their best either, but they played much better than we did. And so, the better team won.ÂŽ The Astros, who have some time to relax and get ready for the BostonNew York series survivor in the ALCS, can win in so many different ways. They have one of baseballÂs best rotations, anchored by Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole, a devastating 1-2 pitching punch that staggered the Indians in Houston. The Astros can play long ball, small ball and any kind of ball needed with a balanced lineup loaded with contact hitters. Sure, theyÂve got AllStars in Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, but the Astros are a selÂ”ess group that plays as one. ÂWe have the most complete team in baseball,ÂŽ Verlander said between puffs on a cigar as his teammates showered each other with champagne in the clubhouse. ÂIÂve been part of really special teams, but the drive to win here trumps everything else. Everybody is OK with whoever is the hero.ÂŽ It was Verlander in Game 1, Marwin Gonzalez in Game 2, and George Springer was among a number of deserving candidates with two homers in Game 3. Springer has found his groove at just the right time. The 2017 World Series MVP was sidelined by a sprained left thumb that landed him on the disabled list in August. He struggled after returning and connected on just three homers over the Â“nal six weeks of the regular season. The postseason is his playground. Springer hit three homers in the Â“nal two ALDS game, giving him a franchise record 10 postseason homers. ÂI said this to our team in there Â„ special teams do special things in October,ÂŽ Hinch said. ÂAnd I believe that about players. George is one of them. WeÂve seen him come up as an uber-prospect, produce at an uncanny level, hit the lowest of the lows in the World Series and then be the World Series MVP. ÂI donÂt think this should surprise anyone. HeÂs a really special player.ÂŽ On a really special team. Before his team was pushed aside by the Astros, Indians manager Terry Francona sat at his ofÂ“ce desk and described what makes them so good. ÂWell, besides the talent, because they are obviously really talented, I do think they do a really good job of playing until the gameÂs over,ÂŽ he said. ÂLike itÂs been noticeable for a while. You know some times, like I think I said this the other day, when you beat them, sometimes they just run out of time. ÂYou gotta have talent, but when you have talent and you play the game the right way, so thatÂs why they have a lot of ways to come at you.ÂŽ Oddly, the Astros seem to get overlooked, lost deep in the heart of Texas amid the endless debate about whether the Yankees or Red Sox are the leagueÂs best. Houston makes its case on the Â“eld. ÂThatÂs a big-time rivalry and I understand that,ÂŽ Springer said, adding the Astros arenÂt craving publicity. ÂBut itÂs all about us and our task at hand. ThatÂs all we focus on. WeÂre going to sit back and watch and see what happens.ÂŽ While he watched his young teammates party after another postseason triumph, Verlander looked like a proud father. He arrived last season to help the Astros get over the hump, and now that they have, thereÂs no going backward. ÂAt no point this season was there any complacency with this team,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf I had been traded here after they won the World Series, instead of before it last year, I would have assumed this was a young and hungry team when I walked in the clubhouse. ÂNo one takes anything for granted here. ThatÂs the DNA of the guys in this clubhouse. This team has a propensity to do big things in big spots.ÂŽ MLB: Houston AstrosEasy as 1-2-3: Astros put on spectacular show in ALDS sweep By TOM WITHERSAP SPORTS WRITERCLEVELAND Â„ For the third year in a row, the unmistakable aroma of champagne wafted into the hallway outside the visitorÂs clubhouse following the Â“nal game at Progressive Field. On the Cleveland side, the smell was sour. The Indians were built for one goal: to win their Â“rst World Series since 1948. Yet after cruising to a third straight AL Central title, they couldnÂt get past the Â“rst round. October rejects again. ÂWe had a good year,ÂŽ said pitcher Trevor Bauer, whose shift from the starting rotation to the bullpen for the postseason maybe best summed up ClevelandÂs unsatisfying, disjointed season. ÂWe deÂ“nitely could have gone further. We had a lot of talent here and it didnÂt go our way.ÂŽ Nothing went ClevelandÂs way. But beyond being swept by the impressive Houston Astros, who were superior at every level, the Indians barely put up a Â“ght. Postseason push-overs. The Indians were so close in 2016, when they took the Chicago Cubs into extra innings in Game 7 of the World Series. Now theyÂve lost six straight playoff games since opening a 2-0 lead in last yearÂs ALDS against the Yankees. ÂThis isnÂt the way we drew it up,ÂŽ said reliever Andrew Miller. ÂThis is 25, 40 guys that have plans of winning the World Series. It obviously didnÂt go our way.ÂŽ Other than All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor, who batted .364 and homered twice, the top of ClevelandÂs lineup bordered on embarrassing. Michael Brantley, Jose Ramirez, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson hit a combined .095 (4 of 42) with two RBIs, zero extra-base hits and 12 strikeouts. ItÂs the second straight postseason Â”op for Ramirez, who was an MVP candidate until he faded down the stretch. HeÂs now 2 for 31 in two playoff appearances, an alarming trend heÂll have to wait a year at least to address. Following MondayÂs loss, Ramirez had to be coaxed to speak with reporters by Encarnacion before delivering answers as futile as his swings. ÂI didnÂt perform to how I wanted to,ÂŽ he said through a translator. ÂBut these are things that happen in baseball.ÂŽ ClevelandÂs pitching wasnÂt much better. Ace Corey Kluber had his second straight puzzling postseason as the 20-game winner didnÂt look like himself in Game 1. The bullpen, a mess for months, completely collapsed in Game 3 after BauerÂs two throwing errors in the seventh inning opened the Â”ood gates for HoustonÂs 11-3 rout. There are numerous reasons why the Indians arenÂt moving on, but the teamÂs failure to address the bullpenÂs issues, which began when Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith werenÂt resigned last winter, is at the top of the list. Because Miller, Cody Allen and Co. couldnÂt be counted on, manager Terry Francona moved Bauer, arguably the teamÂs best starter who was on his way to a possible Cy Young when a line drive broke his leg in August, into a relief role. The decision backÂ“red, and while itÂs easy to second-guess Francona following the IndiansÂ early exit, Bauer wasnÂt comfortable in his role. ÂUnfortunate that I got hit with the line drive, kind of disrupted the Â”ow for me personally,ÂŽ Bauer said. ÂPersonally, a lot of bitterness about that. And as a team, I think that we have a good group of core players here, so thereÂs a lot of hope for the future.ÂŽ Looking ahead, the Indians should stay atop their division. But thatÂs no longer enough. Cleveland will return one of baseballÂs best starting staffs in Kluber, Bauer, Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger, the Â“rst foursome in baseball history to reach 200 strikeouts apiece. The bullpen, though, will likely look very different with Miller, Allen and Oliver Perez eligible for free agency. Allen is the teamÂs career leader in saves, but his ERA bloated to a career-worst 4.70 this season and his struggles Â„ and impending free agency Â„ led to the Indians trading top prospect Francisco Mejia to San Diego for lefty Brad Hand, who may take over as ClevelandÂs closer in 2019. With Lindor and Ramirez under contract through 2021 and Encarnacion and under control until 2020, the IndiansÂ core remains at championship level. Brantley, Donaldson, Melky Cabrera, Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis are all expected to be on the freeagent market, so Cleveland could have a different look at several positons in Â19. As his teammates shared somber yet heartfelt hugs after MondayÂs loss, Brantley stood near his corner locker and spoke quietly with Josh Tomlin, the teamÂs longest-tenured player. Tomlin didnÂt make the postseason roster and surely wonÂt return. For years, Brantley and Tomlin have represented the IndiansÂ heart and soul Â„ two selÂ”ess, dedicated role models for the teamÂs younger players. BrantleyÂs inspirational comeback from an injury-shortened 2017 season may pressure the Indians to re-sign him. HeÂll be 32 in May, but there arenÂt many better outÂ“elders in the game and fewer mean as much to their team as Brantley does to the Indians. When the IndiansÂ Â“nally surrendered in Game 3, with orange-clad Houston fans outnumbering Cleveland, BrantleyÂs mind turned to his future Â„ and the real possibility of leaving. ÂIÂve got a lot of thinking to do,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂve got my family to talk to. IÂve got these guys in this room to still talk to. Then, weÂll go from there. You never know whatÂs going to happen in the offseason.ÂŽ For the Indians, this postseason felt more predictable.Bitter finish: IndiansÂ first-round exit leaves sour taste AP PHOTOCleveland IndiansÂ Jason Kipnis, left, is hugged by starting pitcher Mike Clevinger after the Houston Astros defeated the Indians 11-3 in Game 3 of a baseball American League Division Series, Monday, in Cleveland. MLB: Cleveland IndiansBy PAUL NEWBERRYAP SPORTS WRITERATLANTA (AP) Â„ Even with all their star power and deep pockets, all their booming hitters and ace pitchers, the Los Angeles Dodgers are approaching three decades since their last World Series championship. TheyÂre making another run at that elusive title. Only this time, Manny Machado is along for the ride. The slugging shortstop hit a three-run homer that wrapped up a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, sending Los Angeles to the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row and fourth time in six seasons. This is what the Dodgers had in mind when they acquired the free agentto-be from the lowly Baltimore Orioles back in July. TheyÂre hoping Machado is the one who turns Tinseltown into Titletown for the Â“rst time since 1988. ÂCanÂt say enough about him,ÂŽ Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. ÂA player of his caliber, there are so many expectations put on him.ÂŽ Machado had only three hits in a 3-1 division series victory over the Braves, but two of them were homers. He Â“nished with six RBIs. ÂWe prepared ourselves to get here,ÂŽ Machado said. ÂWeÂre not going to stop till we get what we want.ÂŽ Clearly, nothing less than a World Series title will do. While the Dodgers went through the customary celebration that follows any postseason victory Â„ they doled out T-shirts and caps, posed for pictures in the middle of SunTrust Park, then doused themselves with beer in the clubhouse Â„ the focus turned quickly to the next round. The Dodgers will face the Brewers in the NLCS. Game 1 is Friday night in Milwaukee. ÂWe all know that thereÂs a lot more work to be done,ÂŽ Roberts said. ÂWe have eight more wins to go.ÂŽ Los Angeles spent much of the season locked in a tight race with division rivals Colorado and Arizona, and required a one-game playoff with the Rockies to clinch its sixth straight NL West title. ÂWe took a hard path to get to this point, but I do think it made us stronger and kind of galvanized our team,ÂŽ Roberts said. It certainly helps to have a player of MachadoÂs caliber bolstering an already potent lineup. The Dodgers hit a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season, and added eight more in the NLDS. ÂTheyÂre a very powerful team,ÂŽ Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. ÂItÂs what theyÂve done all year is hit home runs. WeÂre not built like that yet.ÂŽ Indeed, the Baby Braves were thoroughly overmatched in their Â“rst postseason appearance since 2013, hitting .154 overall and scoring just eight runs. Though the future looks bright for a team that pulled off a massive rebuilding job much quicker than expected, Atlanta was not quite ready to contend with a team of the DodgersÂ quality. Los Angeles had too much power, too much depth, too much pitching. Not to mention too much Machado. ÂIt was a great ride,ÂŽ Snitker said. ÂWe took a huge step forward this year. We had some very young players get a lot of great experience, both during the regular season and the postseason. And we have some really good players coming up. I really am excited about the future of the Atlanta Braves right now.ÂŽ The Dodgers are locked Â“rmly in the present. This is a franchise desperate to win one more game than it did a season ago, when the Houston Astros took Game 7 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium. ThatÂs why they acquired Machado. ÂComing over from Baltimore midway through the season Â„ new ball club, new atmosphere, new teammates, new coaching staff, new front ofÂ“ce, I mean, itÂs always a bit of an adjustment,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut theyÂve been nothing but amazing to us, to myself and my family. And coming here to a winning ballclub thatÂs been determined the whole way since last year to get into this situation and further, IÂm just sitting here enjoying everything, enjoying the ride.ÂŽ Machado wasnÂt the only in-season acquisition to play a key role in the clinching victory over the Braves. David Freese, picked up from Pittsburgh just minutes before the trade deadline, came through with a pinch-hit, two-run single that put the Dodgers ahead to stay in the sixth. The MVP of St. LouisÂ improbable victory in the 2011 World Series, Freese is eager to take part in another magical postseason run. ÂYou never know what this game is going to give you, what opportunities arise for you,ÂŽ Freese said. ÂYou just gotta be ready.ÂŽDodgers counting on Machado to push them over Series hump MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers

Page 6 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018By RALPH D. RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERThe Associated Press has been honoring college footballÂs best with an All-America team since 1925. The AP midseason All-America team will be released Oct. 16. The full three-team AP All-America selections will be unveiled in December. The Â“fth All-America watch of the season features a Miami defensive tackle dominating as a senior, FloridaÂs emerging star safety and Old DominionÂs X-factor.SpotlightGerald Willis III, DT, Miami The road to stardom for the former blue-chip recruit has been circuitous Willis started his career at Florida in 2014, transferred to Miami, sat out a season, injured his knee in 2016, and stepped away from football last year. He returned this year to Â“ll a major need for the Hurricanes on their defensive front. The 300-pound senior has been a star for one of the best defenses in the nation, ranking second overall in tackles for loss with 12.5. No. 16 Miami leads FBS in that category with 12 per game. The Outland Trophy, which goes to the top interior lineman in college football, named him its player of the month for September. What they are saying: ÂGerald is playing as good as anybody weÂve had here, for sure.ÂŽ Â„ Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Outlook: This is the year of the defensive lineman in college football so Willis will have to keep up his torrid pace to be an All-American at that position.WhoÂs hotBrad Stewart, S, Florida Stewart made the play of the game against LSU last week for the 14thranked Gators, returning an interception for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It wasnÂt just one play, though. According to Pro Football Focus College, Stewart was the highest-graded player in the game for Florida. The sophomore from New Orleans was pushed into a starting role due to injuries this season and over the last three games he has settled in as one of the best players on a very good defense.WhoÂs notWill Grier, QB, West Virginia Grier had three interceptions against Kansas, all in scoring territory, and fumbled. He has six interceptions this season. The preseason All-American has mostly been great, averaging 363 yards passing per game with 21 touchdown passes. He is unquestionably a Heisman contender. But some of the other quarterbacks around the country, speciÂ“cally AlabamaÂs Tua Tagovailoa, OklahomaÂs Kyler Murray and Ohio StateÂs Dwayne Haskins, have been so good that Grier needs to be spectacular just to keep up. DonÂt bet against him doing just that.Group of five starOshane Ximines, DE, Old Dominion Old Dominion made a lot of noise by upsetting Virginia Tech, but Ximines has been making plays all season. The senior has 7.5 sacks, which is tied for second in the nation and one behind the school record of 8.5 he had last year. At 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, Ximines has gone from two-star recruit to legitimate NFL draft prospect.On the line(ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic, a former guard at Auburn, identiÂ“es an offensive lineman playing at an All-America level) Garrett Bradbury, C, North Carolina State. The Â“fth-year senior is in his third season as a starter for the 20th-ranked Wolfpack, leading a line that has allowed only two sacks in Â“ve games. ÂHe excels with quickness reaching a nose guard or climbing to her second level. ÂHas enough power to hold his own at the line of scrimmage and help double-teams.ÂŽ Â„ Cubelic.All-America matchupMichigan DEs Chase Winovich and Rashan Gary vs. Wisconsin OL David Edwards, Jon Dietzen and Cole Van Lanen. Winovich and Gary might be the best pair of defensive ends on one team in the country. Gary was a preseason second-team All-American. He plays the strong side and tends to face more double-teams. Winovich is a relentless pass rusher from the weak side and tends to get one-on-one matchups he can exploit. WisconsinÂs offensive line has three players, including Edwards, who received preseason All-America recognition. Edward takes the right side tackle spot and Dietzen and Van Lanen rotate on the left. The sophomore Van Lanen has been taking on a bigger load lately. Against Nebraska last week, Van Lanen graded out as one of the best blockers in the country, according to Pro Football Focus College.AP All-America Watch: Miami DÂs middle man; ODU X-factor AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 27, 2018, le photo, North Carolina quarterback Chazz Surratt (12) dives in for a touchdown as he is tackled by Miami defensive lineman Gerald Willis III (9) during the rst half of an NCAA college football game in Miami Gardens, Fla. Willis is second in the nation in tackles for loss with 12.5. COLLEGE FOOTBALL By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERGAINESVILLE, Fla. Â„ Florida coach Dan Mullen opened his Â“rst team meeting this week talking about handling success. HeÂll Â“nd out Saturday if anyone was paying attention. Coming off the programÂs most signiÂ“cant victory in three years and with a rivalry game against No. 2 Georgia looming in two weeks, the 14th-ranked Gators are facing the sometimes-daunting task of avoiding a letdown at Vanderbilt. ÂWe won, so guess what, TwitterÂs going to tell you how great we are,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂIf you like being told how great you are, get back to work and letÂs win again, OK? If youÂd rather be told that youÂre no good and you stink, well then you donÂt have to work very hard and everyone will tell us we wonÂt win the game and then everybody will tell us how bad we are. ÂWhen you walk on campus like today, everyoneÂs patting you on the back, right? ItÂs only about six inches lower that theyÂre kicking you in the rear end, right? ItÂs about that much difference. I like the pat on the back rather than the kick in the rear end, so letÂs just keep working to keep it six inches higher.ÂŽ Florida (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) has won four straight since losing at home to Kentucky, none bigger than last weekendÂs 27-19 victory against then-No. 5 LSU. ItÂs the teamÂs longest winning streak since a 6-0 start in 2015 that included a lopsided win over then-No. 3 Mississippi. The Gators have been up and down since. If they want to keep going in the right direction, they have to Â“nd a way to get motivated for an 11 a.m. kickoff on the road against one of the Â“ve SEC teams without a league victory and in front of an expected crowd of about 30,000. ÂWe deÂ“nitely understand,ÂŽ receiver Josh Hammond said. ÂWeÂre going to treat Vanderbilt as a big game because itÂs the next game coming up. WeÂve still got to be ready to prepare and treat it as if itÂs a national championship game and come out ready to practice and continue to get better. ÂI think that will be the biggest thing moving forward: just to not let our improvement that we keep making going up and let it slip or plateau. WeÂve got to continue to get better, get better, get better and it will propel us into the game on Saturday.ÂŽ The Gators have won four in a row and 26 of the last 27 against Vandy (3-3, 0-2). Instead of focusing on how one-sided the series has been or that the Commodores lost their two conference games this season by a combined 51 points, Mullen pointed to how tough Vanderbilt has played Florida in the past. The Gators shouldnÂt require much of a reminder since the last three games have been close. Florida needed a late Â“eld goal for a 9-7 victory in 2015 and three turnovers to win 13-6 the following year in Nashville. The Gators had a little more breathing room last year, but the 38-24 outcome was a one-score game until Malik DavisÂ late touchdown run. ÂFor our guys to have any thought except for how hard I can go on the next play would be us taking a step backwards as a team,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂThat has to be the focus of everybody within the program.ÂŽTrap game? No. 14 Florida trying to avoid letdown vs Vandy top assistant is Italian Ettore Messina, and Brett Brown had been coaching for nearly two decades in Australia before Popovich hired the current Philadelphia head coach for his staff. ÂItÂs got nothing to do with quotas or anything like that, just people who are qualiÂ“ed for jobs and getting the opportunity,ÂŽ Popovich said. ÂSo, there are no ceilings for anybody based on race or religion or gender or anything like that.ÂŽ NBA Commissioner Adam Silver asked teams to review their hiring practices in the front ofÂ“ce following the workplace harassment investigation of the Dallas Mavericks, with the hope of more women being hired at the senior levels. He doesnÂt have the same concerns at the coaching level, in part because of HammonÂs success. When she coached the Spurs to the Summer League title in 2015, Silver said he had Âno doubtÂŽ that a woman would someday coach an NBA team. ÂI think just like weÂve seen enormous change in our society, just in the last decade, I think thatÂs another ceiling, another barrier that will be broken,ÂŽ Silver said at the time. He credited women such as Hammon and players willing to follow them for his belief. But Popovich and other coaches say the credit goes to Silver for making diversity and inclusion such important themes in the NBA. ÂI think our league is probably the most diverse league, whether itÂs nationality, race, gender, whatever it is,ÂŽ Casey said. ÂI know we have issues as far as things are going on just like corporations in the world, but it starts with AdamÂs outlook. He really promotes that from a leadership standpoint of diversity, inclusion, the whole nine yards, but it starts with him.ÂŽCOACHESFROM PAGE 1Bowl or two at that position. Marpet didnÂt play poorly in his Â“rst year at that position. But when the Bucs saw an opportunity to improve the overall blocking by adding Jensen, Marpet agreed to be on the move again at left guard. ÂIf it helps our team, IÂm all for it,ÂŽ Marpet said at the time. ÂAnd I think it helps our team.ÂŽ Having never missed a start in 52 games, Smith is also in position for a contract extension and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2018. The Bucs also have met with Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for middle linebacker Kwon Alexander, who is also in line for a new deal. Email Jacob Hoag at Jhoag@sun-herald.com and follow him on Twitter @ByJacobHoag.MARPETFROM PAGE 1thrilled and incredibly humbled,ÂÂ Cash told the Times this morning. ÂI donÂt know if surprised is the right word, or Â”attered that they were willing to give me that long of a deal. ÂThis shows the longterm commitment from the Rays in wanting to see this through and continue to get the organization back to where it was in (the playoff years of) 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013.ÂÂ In the release from the team, principal owner Stuart Sternberg said: ÂKevinÂs abilities, leadership and character have exceeded our lofty expectations. I look forward to having him and his family a part of our organization for the years ahead.ÂŽ Also, GM Erik Neander said: ÂWe couldnÂt be happier with the impact that Kevin has made on our organization, an impact that extends well beyond our major league club. WeÂre thankful for this stability and the many advantages that it provides, especially the opportunity to continue learning and improving together.ÂŽ Cash impressively led the Rays to 90 wins this season, dealing with a winter/spring purge of veterans from the roster, injuries to several key pitchers, introduction and implementation of the unorthodox opener pitching strategy, additional July trades and transitioning to a core of young players. Cash received considerable praise around the game for his work, and is expected to Â“nish in the top three in the American League Manager of the Year voting. Players lauded his strong communication skills and how he created a relaxed environment for them. ÂWhat our guy has done has been as difÂ“cult a job thatÂs been asked of a manager and then delivering. Âƒ (and) been incredibly successful,ÂÂ Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg said in September. ÂHeÂs found a way through a lot of turmoil, a lot of change, and has been just a gem.ÂÂ Cash was hired with no previous managing experience (and only two years as a coach) after the October 2014 departure of Joe Maddon, and has compiled a 318-330 record. In each of the last two seasons, the Rays had the most wins of an AL team that didnÂt make the playoffs. Cash goes into 2019 as the most senior AL East manager, matching HoustonÂs A.J. Hinch for fourth most tenured in the AL, and Hinch and Maddon (now with the Cubs) for sixth in the majors. If Cash stays through 2024 he will be longest serving manager in Rays history, surpassing MaddonÂs nine years. Cash said he got the sense the Rays were thinking long term last off-season when they made several coaching changes to assemble a staff he felt was best suited to the situation. General manager Erik Neander approached him in September and said they hoped to work something out shortly after the end of the season, and did so without much discussion needed. The Tampa native played parts of eight seasons in the majors, including 2005 with the Devil Rays, during a 12-year pro career. He retired after playing with TexasÂ Triple-A team in 2011, spent one year as a scout for the Blue Jays then 2013-14 as the Indians bullpen coach. Cash and his wife, Emily, have three kids, Camden, Ella and J.D., and live in Tampa.

The Sun | Wednesday, October 10, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7By TOM HAYSASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ The father of a blue-chip college basketball recruit testiÂ“ed Tuesday that an assistant coach at the University of Louisville gave him a secret payment of $1,300 as part of a deal to get the son to sign with the school. At a criminal trial about corruption in big-time basketball, Brian Bowen Sr. described meeting assistant Kenny Johnson two separate times in 2017 to try to collect cash in violation of school and NCAA rules. Bowen testiÂ“ed that the Â“rst time, Johnson was ÂshockedÂŽ and ÂÂ”abbergastedÂŽ when he told him that defendant Christian Dawkins had promised that the coach would help the father with paying rent. The next time, he said, Johnson handed over $1,300 Â„ reluctantly. ÂHe made it clear that this was a one-time deal for him,ÂŽ Bowen said in federal court in Manhattan. ÂHe said Louisville didnÂt pay basketball players.ÂŽ There was no immediate response Tuesday to a message seeking comment from a lawyer for Johnson, who was never accused of a crime. The testimony about the recruitment of Brian Bowen Jr. came in a case that prompted Louisville to Â“re both Johnson and its legendary coach, Rick Pitino. Johnson is now an assistant at La Salle. Dawkins, former amateur coach Merl Code and former Adidas executive James Gatto, have pleaded not guilty to charges they sought to use under-the-table payments of up to $100,000 from Adidas in exchange for commitments from top prospects to major programs seen as a path to the pros. Their lawyers havenÂt disputed that payments were offered, but they argue that the schools never suffered any harm. Brian Bowen Sr. took the witness stand in federal court in Manhattan as part of an agreement with the government that will spare him from prosecution. On Tuesday, he testiÂ“ed that he tried to keep quiet about the Âmoney schemeÂŽ that he knew broke the rules, even going as far as keeping his son in the dark about it. ÂI didnÂt want him to get involved in something that was wrong. ... And I deÂ“nitely didnÂt want my son to lose his eligibility,ÂŽ he said. The former police ofÂ“cer testiÂ“ed that when Â“rst confronted by the FBI, he lied to agents by denying he knew about the scheme. He said he later decided he had no choice but to cooperate. Once the scandal broke, Louisville withdrew Brian BowenÂs scholarship before he ever played a game. HeÂs currently playing professionally in Australia.Basketball playerÂs father: Louisville assistant gave cash AP PHOTOBrian Bowen Sr. arrives at federal court, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, in New York. When Brian Bowen Jr., one of AmericaÂs brightest high school basketball stars, announced in June 2017 that he would attend the University of Louisville, a school that had not been on anyoneÂs radar as his possible destination, sportswriters called it a coup that Âcame out of nowhere.ÂŽ In a trial that began Monday, federal prosecutors will argue that the signing wasnÂt luck at all but the result of a payo to BowenÂs father. NCAASTOCKTON, Calif. (AP) Â„ Alex Spanos, the son of Greek immigrants who used a self-made fortune from construction and real estate to buy the Chargers in 1984, died Tuesday. He was 95. The Chargers announced SpanosÂ death. Faye Spanos, his wife, died in August at 92. After building a nationwide construction empire based in Stockton, his Northern California hometown, Spanos realized a lifelong dream of owning an NFL franchise when he bought controlling interest in the San Diego Chargers from Gene Klein in 1984 for about $50 million. He eventually bought all but 3 percent of the team. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hailed Spanos as Âan American success story, driven by a tireless work ethic inspired by his humble beginnings.ÂŽ ÂAlex became one of the countryÂs most successful businessmen, but he never forgot his roots and the call to help others,ÂŽ Goodell added in a statement. ÂAlong with Faye, his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, AlexÂs philanthropic and civic contributions touched many lives throughout California and around the country. He was a marvelous friend and partner whose impact on the NFL will never be forgotten. We all beneÂ“ted from AlexÂs compassion, character and zest for football and life.ÂŽ Spanos hadnÂt been in charge of day-to-day management of the Chargers since 1994, when he turned over the responsibilities to Dean Spanos, his oldest son. Dean Spanos decided to move the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles last year. The team announced in 2008 that Alex Spanos was suffering from dementia, and he eventually stopped attending games. ÂLaura and I send our condolences to the Spanos family on the death of their beloved patriarch, Alex Spanos,ÂŽ former President George W. Bush said in a statement. ÂAlex was one of a kind. ... He was a wonderful citizen and friend, and the Bush family will miss him.ÂŽ Born in Stockton on Sept. 28, 1923, Spanos took an unlikely road to NFL ownership. After working in his fatherÂs bakery and serving in the Air Force during World War II, Spanos borrowed $800 from a banker to buy a truck from which he sold sandwiches to migrant farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley. He began investing in real estate and started a construction company that mostly built apartment buildings, eventually expanding its footprint across the Sunbelt and Midwest. Spanos and his wife were generous philanthropists, giving to many causes related to hospitals, universities and youth programs. He gave extensively to the University of the PaciÂ“c, his alma mater in Stockton, where the Alex G. Spanos Center houses the TigersÂ basketball and volleyball teams. He was an avid golfer and counted among his friends Bob Hope, Gerald Ford and many prominent politicians. Hope sometimes attended Chargers home games, sitting in SpanosÂ box. ÂAlex Spanos lived the American Dream,ÂŽ former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Twitter. ÂHis incredible story should inspire each and every one of us. As a son of immigrants, he rose from working in his fatherÂs bakery to become a titan of real estate and business. But more importantly, he used his money and platform to give back to the world. He was a dear friend and IÂll miss him dearly.ÂŽ During his third season of Chargers ownership, Spanos Â“red legendary coach Don Coryell after the Chargers started 1-7 in 1986. It took nine seasons for the Chargers to make their Â“rst playoff appearance under SpanosÂ ownership, in 1992. After then-general manager Bobby Beathard nearly resigned following the 1993 season due to a feud over signing bonuses for free agents, Alex Spanos put Dean in charge of day-to-day operations of the team. With Beathard remaining, the Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance, a 49-26 loss to San Francisco in January 1995. It was Alex Spanos who Â“rst raised the topic of a new stadium in 2000, just three years after the city expanded Qualcomm by 10,000 seats for the Chargers, touting it as being Super Bowl-quality. The stadium hosted Super Bowls in 1998 and 2003, but the city fell behind on maintenance and it fell out of the Super Bowl rotation. Alex Spanos wasnÂt held in warm regard by many San Diego fans and was booed during a halftime ceremony to retire Hall of Famer Dan FoutsÂ No. 14 in 1988. After that, Alex Spanos didnÂt participate in similar ceremonies. The Chargers last year left San Diego, their home of 56 years, and moved north after years of fruitless attempts to secure funding for a new arena to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers are currently in the midst of their second of three seasons playing at StubHub Center in suburban Carson, but they will share a multibillion dollar stadium complex in Inglewood with the Los Angeles Rams upon its completion in 2020. Spanos is survived by four children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.Alex Spanos, Chargers owner and businessman, dies at 95 AP PHOTOThis is a 1986 Â“le photo showing Alex Spanos.

NFL: Alex SpanosBy JIMMY GOLENAP SPORTS WRITERThree-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, already the most decorated beach volleyball player in history, will pair with defensive star Brooke Sweat in an attempt to make it to the Summer Games for a sixth time. The decision kicks off a two-year qualiÂ“cation process that would send Walsh Jennings to Tokyo in 2020 a month before she turns 42. Sweat, eight years younger, is a four-time AVP defensive player of the year who competed in Rio de Janeiro in her only Olympics. ÂI was so excited that Brooke wanted to play,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said in an interview with The Associated Press. ÂSheÂs literally a Jedi on defense. You can tell Brooke was born to play this game. SheÂs elevated every single partnership sheÂs ever had.ÂŽ A Â“ve-time Olympian Â„ she also went to Sydney on the U.S. indoor volleyball team Â„ Walsh Jennings won three gold medals with Misty May-Treanor, who retired after the 2012 Games. Walsh Jennings paired with London silver medalist April Ross in 2016 and earned bronze, but the pair split when Walsh Jennings left the AVP over philosophical differences and formed her own tour, called p1440. The new partners will compete together for the Â“rst time Oct. 18-21 at the p1440 event in Las Vegas. ÂIÂm so excited to Â“nally be on the same side of the net as Kerri,ÂŽ Sweat told the AP. ÂIÂm excited to play defense behind that block. SheÂs the best blocker, and it makes my job on defense way easier.ÂŽ Beach volleyball partners can take years to learn each otherÂs strengths and weaknesses, along with the quirks that emerge while traveling on a world tour that bounces among Europe, Asia and North and South America. Walsh Jennings, nicknamed ÂSix Feet of Sunshine,ÂŽ is a ruthless competitor, a relentlessly optimistic chatterbox, a Stanford graduate and now a budding mogul who formed her own tour rather than give up on her vision to grow the sport. Sweat grew up in Fort Myers, Florida, and stayed home to attend Florida Gulf Coast University rather than make the usual pilgrimage to the beach volleyball hub in Southern California. ÂI probably will do most of the talking,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said with a laugh. ÂSheÂs a really grounded, really good human being. If you have a problem with Brooke, you are just not a good human being.ÂŽ Sweat, who pronounced herself recovered from May rotator cuff surgery, attended the San Jose p1440 event last month as a spectator. The two practiced together last week for the Â“rst time. ÂIt just conÂ“rmed what IÂve always thought about Kerri: She just raises the level of hard work and professionalism,ÂŽ Sweat said. ÂI always want to show up for practices wanting to be the hardest worker on the court, and I think Kerri gives me a run for my money.ÂŽ Two-person teams qualify for the Olympics by earning points on the FIVB world tour over a two-year period that began in the spring. The two are starting at zero and will have to work their way up into the top two dozen Â„ and be one of the top two U.S. teams Â„ to make it to Tokyo. ÂI have no points on the qualiÂ“cation,ÂŽ Walsh Jennings said. ÂItÂs a new situation for me, which I donÂt like.ÂŽ SweatÂs Olympic experience will be an advantage, Walsh Jennings said. Sweat, paired with Lauren Fendrick, arrived in Rio as the No. 13 seed of 24 teams. They were eliminated after going winless in pool play and Â“nished tied for last. ÂRio was devastating, but now IÂm in a place where I can look back and learn from everything,ÂŽ Sweat said. ÂMostly, IÂm learning from the journey to Rio, not being so stressed out about everything.ÂŽ OLYMPICS: VolleyballWalsh Jennings pairs with Brooke Sweat for 2020 Tokyo try AP PHOTOThree-time beach Olympic volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings has a new partner as she tries to qualify for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Murray suffered the concussion during practice Monday and reported potential symptoms to the training staff immediately afterward. Sullivan did not offer specifics on the nature of the contact that led to the injury. This is the third time in his NHL career the 24-year-old Murray has been diagnosed with a concussion. He suffered one in practice last February and missed nearly a month. He also suffered a concussion late in the 2015-16 season when he collided with PhiladelphiaÂs Brayden Schenn. Sullivan said the team is focusing on MurrayÂs health and not the number of concussions he has suffered. ÂItÂs really hard to make any sort of, to draw any conclusions with this stuff because I think everybody is different,ÂŽ Sullivan said. ÂThatÂs been my experience in dealing with concussions over the years. The nature of these is different. Sometimes players bounce back extremely quick and others tend to linger and itÂs hard to predict.ÂŽ Murray, who won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in 2016 and 2017, struggled during the opening week of the season. He allowed six goals in an overtime victory over Washington and then let in five in a loss to Montreal. Sullivan was quick to spread around the blame for PittsburghÂs sluggish start, pointing to a group that played sloppy away from the puck. ÂWeÂve got to be a more difficult team to play against,ÂŽ Sullivan said. Casey DeSmith will get the first chance at replacing Murray. The Penguins also recalled Tristan Jarry from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. DeSmith went 6-4-1 with a 2.40 goals against average and .921 save percentage as a rookie last season. The Penguins are off until Thursday when they host the Vegas Golden Knights.Penguins g Matt Murray out indefinitely with a concussion NHL: Pittsburg Penguins Celebrating 25 Years of Golf and Nature at its FinestÂƒFAMILY MEMBERSHIPS ~ $2,000 Off dues, each year for up to 5 years.

Our garage had been constructed underneath our stilted house with just lattice doors on the side, at the bottom of which was about six inches of open space. So it was certainly not inconceivable that a cat had wandered into it. As I got out of the driverÂs side of the car, I started speaking softly to the eyes in front of me, ÂHere, kitty, kitty.ÂŽ My husband was saying, ÂI donÂt think thatÂs a cat,ÂŽ but of course, I didnÂt listen. Animals do love me, after all. Just then, a small bobcat ran straight at me and darted between my legs out the open garage door and into the night. I made sure to keep a healthier distance from the bobcats when I visited the Hardee County Wildlife Refuge, in Zolfo Springs, along with all the other magniÂ“ cent animals who call that place home. The Refuge includes not only bobcats, but cougars, bears, owls, otters, deer, ostriches, alligators, tortoises, wolves and even a black bear. When walking along the elevated boardwalk that runs throughout the property, I could get a good look at the beautiful habitats where the animals are housed. They have all been brought there because they were injured or incapacitated, and unable to survive on their own in the wild. But at the Refuge, they are fed and receive medical care, and are able to roam around in their natural-type home. Though I enjoyed seeing all of the animals, I spent most of my time watching the river otters playing and talking to a very curious doe. The public park where the Wildlife Refuge is also includes a campground and a wonderful museum, which is a tribute to the founders of Hardee County. The Cracker Trail Museum includes interactive exhibits and artifacts from former Hardee County residents, from the time the land was occupied by Native Americans until much more recent events. Having a son who is currently serving in the military, I was most interested in the articles and pictures of Hardee County military Nature and history in Hardee County LETÂS GO PHOTO BY DEBBIE FLESSNERI stood and talked to this beautiful doe for quite a while.

And if you have ever lamented some of our modern medical practices, you should take a look at some of the instruments and methods that have been used by doctors and dentists of the past. You will be thankful for living in the current era. This museum is incredibly interesting and includes more than 4,500 total artifacts. After I left the building, I walked around the Pioneer Village that is adjacent to it. There is a Baldwin locomotive and several 19th century buildings, most of which were moved to their current location from somewhere else in Hardee County. ThereÂs a blacksmith shop, a residential cabin, a post ofÂ“ ce and even an outhouse, which was used by one of the founding families. Considering the numbers of animals who were probably running around the Florida woods during the time these families were settling in the area, I would assume that there were much worse things they had to worry about getting in those outhouses than bobcats. Though they probably wouldnÂt have tried to pet them, like I did. ÂHere, kitty, kitty.ÂŽ Debbie Flessner writes the Live Like a Tourist column for the Sun newspapers.

Page 6 Â€ October 10, 2018 DINING OUTBy DEBBIE FLESSNERLETÂS GO CORRESPONDENTWhen brother and sister Scott and Susan Gordon were growing up, their father was a U.S. Navy pilot whose job took the family from San Diego to Wisconsin at a very young age. After they became adults, their parents discovered that they really liked Southwest Florida. Later on, the siblings did, too. ÂOur parents are snowbirds and theyÂve had various homes here on the Gulf Coast,ÂŽ Scott said. ÂOnce they found this area, they fell in love with it, and now they live in Placida part time and in Wisconsin part time.ÂŽ Back in Wisconsin, Scott and Susan were both chefs at different restaurants/ resorts, but then they owned a restaurant together for four years. A little more than Â“ ve years ago, they both moved down to Florida full time and opened the Placida Grill. This past January, they relocated to their current 150-seat site in the Cape Haze Plaza on Placida Road. The sibling team has been working together for a long time and has systemized their operations so that Susan is in charge of the back of the house and all that entails, and Scott runs the front of the house. They are both there every hour the restaurant is open, which Scott says their regular clientele has come to expect. ÂOur customers come from Boca Grande, Cape Haze, Rotonda, Englewood and further out,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe have a lot of great ones, and they know that our philosophy is to get the best quality ingredients that we can.ÂŽ The Placida Grill serves primarily fresh seafood, steaks, pasta, burgers and salads in a both stylish and relaxed setting. ItÂs open for lunch and dinner, and each day Scott and Susan post specials for the evening, which could be something carefully crafted, but simple, like a lamb shank with mashed potatoes or a Berkshire pork chop. Both siblings went to culinary school, Susan to Johnson & Wales and Scott to the Cordon Bleu, but SusanÂs degree was in bakery and patisserie, which means that she also creates all of the Placida GrillÂs homemade desserts. Each day on a board in the front of the restaurant, she posts the sweet treats that are available, such as key lime pie, Heath Bar bread pudding, bourbon pecan pie and BarbÂs chocolate cake. Scott said that he and his sister are thrilled to be a part of the Gulf Coast Community, and enjoy supporting local nonproÂ“ ts, when asked. ÂWe feel like we love having a restaurant here, partially because we have access to such great seafood and local ingredients,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe get fresh Â“ sh deliveries every day weÂre open. WeÂll see whatÂs good and we buy 20 pounds of it and sell out that night.ÂŽPhilosophy of sibling owners of Placida Grill is to get the best quality ingredients LETÂS GO PHOTOS BY DEBBIE FLESSNER Scott Gordon, co-owner of Placida Grill, is pictured with sta members Madison Naton and Lacey Graham.

Include your answer, your name and the city you reside in.By CHRIS KOURAPISLETÂS GO CORRESPONDENTPhotographer, singer, songwriter Joseph John Orchulli II became an accidental photo journalist when a photo he submitted to the Boothbay Register in Maine won an unexpected prize and an invitation to join the newspaper staff as a features writer. In 2016, 26 examples of his work were exhibited at the Boothbay Memorial Library in a solo exhibit, and over the years his photographs and stories have won top honors from both the Maine Press Association and the North East Press Association. ÂI seldom knew when my work was being submitted by the news staff so awards always came as a surprise,ÂŽ commented Joey, who likes to call himself a Âdrive-by shooterÂŽ and a Âstorm chaserÂŽ because he loves to photograph or video beautiful scenery and spectacular lightning strikes on the spot and in real time both in Maine during the summer and in Florida during the winter. ÂThere is so much beauty in this world. I believe that every day is a gift, but you have to be present or youÂll miss it. I rise before dawn every day to photograph dolphins, birds, sea creatures, people and the sunrise at the North Jetty in Venice,ÂŽ he added. Joey OÂs mother, a former big band, and jazz vocalist, passed on her musical talents. Joey O plays guitar and regularly sings at Venice beach restaurants and at the First Baptist Church in Venice Sunday services. Due to the red tide, however, restaurant managers and owners have been forced to cancel musical entertainment so Joey O has been concentrating on his unique photography project, a 3D photography slide show with musical accompaniment. For two years in a row in 2015 and 2016 Joey OÂs ÂVenice Gondolier SunÂŽ feature photographs were awarded Â“ rst place prizes by the Florida Press Association. Photographs by Joey O are often featured in the ÂSunÂŽ newspaper and at the Cottage Gallery, 106 Pocono Trail East in Nokomis where a collection of his work is currently on display. ÂJoey OÂs photographs of soaring eagles, leaping dolphins, musing manatees, and glorious sky shots preserve Â” ashes of Mother Nature for all to enjoy. HeÂs also a Â“ ne musician who performs regularly at our monthly art markets during the season,ÂŽ said Judi Light, Cottage Artists Cooperative Board Member. Joey OÂs ÂPassing Moments in GodÂs CreationÂŽ exhibit includes dramatic photographs of tall ships, lobster men, Â“ ghting sea birds, spoon bills, dolphins, osprey, sunrises, lightning, and scenes taken at Myakka State Park. All photographs are ready to hang and mounted on gallery wrapped canvas.

Page 11 Â€ October 10, 2018UPCOMING EVENTSBy RUSTY PRAYLETÂS GO CORRESPONDENTItÂs a blast from the past Â„ with a futuristic twist. ThatÂs one way to describe Steampunk, the subgenre of science Â“ ction and fantasy that incorporates technology and 19th century aesthetic designs. A cottage industry of sorts has grown up around it, including vendors, crafts and cosplay. All will be part of the SWFL SteamCon, a fantasy expo that invites those who attend to dress up in their favorite Victorian Steampunk, Dieselpunk and fantasy themed attire. The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 13 at Araba Shrine Temple, 2010 Hanson St. in Fort Myers. Authors, vendors and craftsman will be on hand. There will be storytelling, talks throughout the day, tea and parasol dueling, a teapot race, live music, and, of course, a costume contest. Prizes will be awarded for best fantasy costume and best Steampunk costume. Costumes are not required. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 4 to 12. Children 3 and younger are free. ÂA lot of people refer to Jules Verne as the inspirationÂŽ for Steampunk, said Michelle Wassall, event organizer. The 19th century writer is considered the father of science Â“ ction, and he is best known for his novels ÂTwenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,ÂŽ ÂJourney to the Center of the Earth,ÂŽ ÂFrom the Earth to the Moon,ÂŽ and ÂAround the World in Eighty Days.ÂŽ Wassall, a Miami native, said SteamCon will be a Âcross between a Renaissance fair and a pirate festival. Steampunk events are gaining popularity in Southwest Florida. ÂItÂs amazing how many people come to these events.ÂŽ Wassall said many of those people are in the Â60s and Â70s. ÂItÂs all ages, but itÂs very popular with seniors. Some of the best costumes IÂve seen are done by seniors. The upcycling and the handmade artistry are just amazing.ÂŽ The musical acts, which are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., include the Steampunk, For Love or Money, and Mark RossmoreÂs Escape the Clouds. ÂThe big thing is costumes,ÂŽ Wassall said. ÂItÂs like seeing artwork people create ItÂs like a miniature version of renaissance fair. ItÂs going to be so much fun.ÂŽA Steampunk & Fantasy Expo: Blast from past with futuristic twist PHOTO PROVIDEDSteamCon will be a Âcross between a Renaissance fair and a pirate festival, according to event organizer Michelle Wassall.

Page 12 Â€ October 10, 2018 A VENICE SPOTLIGHT: THE CROWÂS NEST & MARINABack in the late 70Âs, you might have only known it as a small sandwich shop and Tarpon Marina, down on the South Jetty. More than 40 years later, The CrowÂs Nest is considered a landmark and one of the best restaurants in Venice, Fl. The restaurant and marina was just recently purchased last June and, to delight of its regular patrons, not much has changed on the menu. ÂOur new owners are great,ÂŽ said Redd Wilx, General Manager of The CrowÂs Nest. They recognize theyÂve acquired a successful restaurant and havenÂt changed the menu much. ÂThe changes theyÂve made have been nothing but good for us and our guests. TheyÂve implemented 20% o plus one for teachers, 20% o for military and Â“ rst responders. ThatÂs not all, kids eat free Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.ÂŽ Most of the other changes the new owners have made have been cosmetic. TheyÂve added chandeliers and mirrors and improved the lighting throughout the restaurant. ÂWe really couldnÂt be any happier,ÂŽ Wilx said. ÂWe love our community and so do our new owners, they created ÂWe Love Our Locals MonthÂ last month, giving out discounts to our locals patrons. We appreciate the support weÂve gotten from the community throughout this di cult period.ÂŽ There also environmentally conscious. They partnered with the Mote Marine last month creating a three-course prix Â“ xe menu and donating $2 every time someone ordered from that menu. They also participate in the ÂSkip the Straw, Save a TurtleÂŽ campaign where they encourage their patrons to skip the straw, which add 4,000,000 lbs of ocean waste every year. The restaurant has a gorgeous dining room overlooking the water, second Â” oor porch dining, a pub-style tavern downstairs and a full-service marina.
