Bumper stickers and T-shirts for the Democrat sell for $4.20. There is more cannabis green on the site than donkey blue. Among her top priorities for the Department of Agriculture, the state agency she hopes to lead? Expand medical marijuana and embrace industrial hemp. It all might lead some voters to believe that Frieds advocacy is accompanied by some “ rsthand knowledge. Asked if she has ever used marijuana, Fried wasnt coy about it. Of course I have,Ž the agriculture commissioner candidate and marijuana lobbyist told the Tampa Bay Times. Marijuana use is on the rise in the United States. A federal drug survey released last month found half of American adults have tried marijuana once in their life, the high point of the last 20 years. As marijuana grows more ubiquitous, sentiments about the drug have shifted, too. More Americans than ever, 62 percent, believe marijuana should be legalized, according to Pew Research Center, a complete reversal from a decade ago. Floridas next class of elected leaders will confront these changing attitudes.

Voter registration for the 2018 general election closed Tuesday, Oct. 9, and the numbers are still being processed. We are not quite “ nished processing all voter registration applications that will be postmarked as of Oct. 9, but we are close,Ž said Sarasota Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner on Friday. The new applications go to the state for vetting and are currently in suspense, so to speak,Ž said Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis on Wednesday. It takes them some time to complete the process.Ž Attempts to reach Stamoulis for comment Friday on whether Charlotte County numbers were “ nalized was not immediately successful. However, with the numbers released so far, Sarasota and Charlotte counties have gained 4,610 and 1,654 voters, respectively, since the July 30 primary election book closing. A majority of these in Charlotte County were Republicans, which gained 1,066 new voters, whereas Democrats received 264. A total of 324 people registered with no party or a minor party in Charlotte County since July 30. However, in Sarasota County, 42 percent of new voters there registered Republican, 39 percent registered Democrat, and 19 percent registered with either no party or a minor party. The numbers so far seem low compared to voter registration that took place for the 2016 presidential election „ which gained 7,727 voters in Sarasota and 2,618 in Charlotte after the primary and before the general election.By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITERBishop Michael Curry gave a “ ery sermon Friday night at the Charlotte Harbor Event Center, much like the one he gave this summer at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom. Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Curry came to Punta Gorda this weekend to speak at the 50th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida. On Thursday, he visited with children at the Good Shepherd Episcopal School, “ elding questions about why he became a priest, why God is invisible, and whether he was nervous at the royal wedding. On Friday, he kicked off the convention at the event center with a sermon and the Eucharist. His message hit many of the same notes as his royal wedding speech, stressing the importance and the power of love. Love is the way, and in fact, its the only way,Ž he said on Friday night.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERASSISTANT EDITORSome environmental groups and Charlotte County leaders lauded federal legislation passed last week, authorizing a Lake Okeechobee storage reservoir to reduce harmful discharges to area waterways. The legislation, Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), passed overwhelmingly through the Senate Oct. 10, as algae blooms have festered this year in waterways killing wildlife and harming businesses and tourism in Southwest Florida. But at one point in the process, Charlotte County hoped the federal legislation would bring even more money to the area. The countys 2018 Legislative Agenda sought $16 million for the countys sewer system expansion projects through the WRDA. The funding for Charlotte Countys project was included in the initial Senate version of WRDA 2018,Ž said Emily Lewis, legislative manager for the county, in an email. However, the House did not accept this language (along with many others proposed by the Senate) and the language was unfortunately omitted from the “nal version of WRDA in Conference.Ž Charlotte County has begun its “ve-year plan to convert thousands of septic systems to sewer. According to the countys Sewer Master Plan, untreated sewage from septic systems percolates through the soil, enters groundwater and is conveyed to waterways with nitrogen, phosphorous and contaminants that decrease water clarity, contribute to excess algae growth, sustain harmful algae blooms and lead to red tide events.Ž A “ve-year septic-tosewer conversion plan in Charlotte County involves 14 project areas with costs of over $100 million, according to the master plan. Even though residents who are affected by these conversions must pay a portion of the costs, not all agree their systems are harming the environment. The Caloosahatchee Watershed is located within Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program (CHNEP), and spans almost 425 square miles. The watershed contains 54 named lakes and ponds, 37 named rivers, streams and canals, and 2 named bays or bayous. A watershed is also known as a drainage basin, according to information from CHNEP. We are encouraged that the EAA (Everglades Agricultural Area) Southern reservoir project was included in this bill and will advocate for an updated IDS (Integrated Delivery Schedule) to advance this project and provide us with much needed relief from the Lake O discharges to the Caloosahatchee,Ž said Lewis. Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg said in statement last week that the bills passage was a victory by the people of Florida who put their collective feet down and said, enough!Ž He stressed the reservoir needs to be built soon, in the next four years. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) also praised passage of the bill in a statement last week saying the most signi“cant challenge facing Florida is the need to improve our water quality.Ž Rubio also said he ensured the bill will authorize the new EAA Storage reservoir to help reduce harmful discharges to Floridas coasts and enhance the promise of Everglades restoration.Ž He said he looks forward to President Donald Trump signing it into law soon. Trump tweeted last week before the Senate vote of 99-1 in favor of the bill that Florida Gov. Rick Scott „ who is running against longtime Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Florida) for Nelsons seat this November „ has been relentless in securing the funding to fix the algae problem from Lake Okeechobee.Ž Trumps tweet went on to say we will solve this! Congress must follow through on the governments plan on the Everglades Reservoir. Bill Nelson has been no help!Ž Last week, Nelson voted in favor of the bill. Meanwhile, Charlotte Countys 2019 federal legislative agenda is in development now, according to Lewis. We will continue to pursue all available funding sources to support our sewer master plan,Ž she said. Almost $12.5 million in funding is also heading toward the county in connection to impacts from the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. That is all proposed to be used on our sewer master plan projects,Ž said Lewis.Email: apraegitzer@sun-herald.comCongress approves Lake Okeechobee storage reservoirCharlotte sewer funding nixed from legislation PHOTO FROM TWITTER PHOTO PROVIDEDThis is a screenshot of a recent septic-to-sewer conversion in Charlotte County from a video the county produced detailing its Sewer Master Plan. BP MONEY HELPS PAY FOR PART OF EL JOBEAN SEWERCharlotte County commissioners unanimously approved spending $1.1 million of BP settlement funds Tuesday for the planned El Jobean septic to sewer conversion project. The El Jobean project is slated to begin construction in February, said Capital Projects Manager Travis Mortimer. We relied on that,Ž Mortimer said of the role BP money is slated to pay for part of the El Jobean project. The full project cost for the El Jobean project is estimated at $9.1 million and involves multiple funding sources. It is one of more than a dozen other septic-to-sewer project areas in the county, which have been planned out over five years, according to the countys latest sewer master plan. Additional BP funds will be appropriated as projects progress, and as the U.S. Treasury releases more of the BP money, Mortimer said. The current costs for residents facing hookup is $11,500 over 20 years, with no interest charged. Mortimer said that up to $4.5 million of the BP related money is ultimately expected to be used in helping to fund the septic-to-sewer project in El Jobean area. „ By Sta Writer Betsy Calvert preventive care$0copays$0savings15%MT-1165544.1 9/18 2018 United HealthCare Services, Inc. 18-9725 1 Savings based on February 2018 UnitedHealthcare analysis comparing Southwest Florida rates for similar competitor small group p lans.2 Or “ rst dollar coverage for primary care physician visits.3 For primary care physician, specialist and urgent care visits.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 Meanwhile, in the previous midterm election in 2014, Charlotte County gained 868 voters, 640 of those registered for no party and Sarasota County gained 3,187, half of those who also registered for no party. This midterm, most of the growth in Sarasota County has gone to the two major parties, with non-party af“liates only taking up 19 percent of newly registered voters. In Charlotte County, though, a majority of new voters registered Republican. Voters are obviously taking this Midterm Election Cycle very seriously,Ž Stamoulis said in late August. Increases in turnout are indicative of a healthy democracy.Ž The General Election takes place Nov. 6, but registered voters can vote early at certain locations from Oct. 22 to Nov. 3 in Sarasota County and Nov. 4 in Charlotte County.Email: FROM PAGE ONE going to cut away to a commercial?Ž He said he was nervous starting off, but once he began, he was just a parish priest again, talking to his church. He believes the reason it resonated with so many people has to do with the unsettledness of the times, on a global scale. It doesnt feel solid,Ž he said. We all know it, and we dont know exactly what to do about it. [...] Theres a sense in which were all searching for a moral and spiritual mooring.Ž Love, he said, can be that mooring, when its not just a feeling but a guide for the decisions people make and the actions they take. Since the wedding, its been a pleasant surprise how many people of different religious backgrounds and political persuasions have talked with him about love „ what it means, whether its actually possible, and what it might look like. Jesus was always talking about love,Ž he said. The brother never got off it. Christians need to reclaim it. Thats what were about. But not just Christians. Its Gods message to his human children. And that message connected.Ž The royal wedding, he said, acted as a bridge, bringing together different worlds that rarely, if ever, meet. We all gathered to see two people in love, and thats a parable of what love can do,Ž he said. Harry and Meghan, he said, were conscious of that, having read his entire sermon ahead of time. They had invited the heads of many organizations involved in relief and development work. Though he only spoke with them brie”y, he said they were kind, gracious people. At the end of the month, Curry has a book of sermons coming out that go deeper into what he discussed at the wedding. In his sermon Friday, he said the opposite of love is self-centeredness, which leaves no room for anyone else. But love, he said, can recreate a world where every man and woman is treated as a child of God,Ž he said.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.comBISHOPFROM PAGE 1VOTERFROM PAGE 1SARASOTA COUNTY TOTAL REGISTERED VOTERSDate Republicans Democrats Other Total July 28, 2014 117,713 84,850 71,546 274,109 Aug. 1, 2016 127,075 90,533 76,591 294,199 July 30, 2018 133,444 96,052 84,328 313,824 Oct. 9, 2018 135,397 97,849 85,188 318,434„ Source: Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections, Florida Division of ElectionsCHARLOTTE COUNTY TOTAL REGISTERED VOTERSDate Republicans Democrats Other Total July 28, 2014 50,673 35,487 33,002 119,162 Aug. 1, 2016 55,163 35,798 34,753 125,714 July 30, 2018 59,795 36,487 36,710 132,992 Oct. 13, 2018 60,861 36,751 37,034 134,646„ Source: Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections, Florida Division of Elections By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERPunta Gorda City Council and Charlotte County candidates have managed to raise a collective $31,824.99 since Aug. 24, campaign “nance reports state. These same eight candidates in city and county races had raised $127,636 before the Aug. 28 primary. The Sun has compiled “nancial data available for local campaigns via the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections website and the City of Punta Gorda website. Reports up to Oct. 5 were available for Charlotte County District 4 County Commissioner incumbent Stephen R. Deutsch, his competitor Joan Fischer and School Board District 1 candidate Cara Reynolds, while reports for School Board District 1 candidate Cathy Janiak, Charlotte County Airport Authority District 4 incumbent Kathleen Coppola, her competitor Joe Makray, Punta Gorda City Council District 2 incumbent Mayor Rachel Keesling and her competitor Debby Carey go up to Sept. 28. One of the largest campaign coffers for this election both primary and general so far is with non-partisan candidate Reynolds, who has raised a total of $52,579 in monetary contributions. An overwhelming amount of my support has come from small dollar donations made by parents, teachers and people who want to see change in Charlotte County,Ž Reynolds said. The average contribution Reynolds received was $193.36 from her 200 individual contributors. Reynolds has also received 15 business contributions and three PAC contributions, one of which was the Florida Education Association. Her competitor, Janiak, has raised $3,890 during the primary and general elections so far, which involved 85 percent from individual contributions. Janiak said she has tried to be careful and effectiveŽ with her “nances. I know the School Board has to do the same so it has been good practice.Ž Janiak has spent a total of $2,283.68 since her “rst “nancial report. The second largest campaign bank account belongs to Deutsch, a Republican incumbent that has raised $48,594 during the primary and general elections so far. About $9,465 of that has been raised since his close race with Tom Sullivan in August. Now he is facing off with Democrat candidate Fischer, who has raised $13,046.99 total so far. Contributions are from residents who support my issues and care about Charlotte County,Ž Fischer said. My opponents funding is from new businesses and out-of-state developers he has supported as Commissioner and those who look for favors if he is elected on Nov. 6.Ž Fischer has received 65 percent of her funds through individual contributions and almost 35 percent through loans, with the remainder being in-kind contributions. About 63 percent of Deutschs funds come from individuals, almost 24 percent from businesses, 7 percent (or $3,750) from PACs and the remainder from loans and in-kind contributions. I think its because Im fair, Im open and accessible to everyone.Ž (Deutsch) has shown no interest in preventing deadly Red Tide and Algae blooms,Ž Fischer said. He supports funded special interests, not those of the people who elected him.Ž Deutsch and Fischer have received 396 and 108 contributions respectively. We look at whats right for Charlotte County,Ž he said. Its unfortunate that my opponent chose to make this (race) partisan like Washington, D.C.Ž Seeking her “fth term, Keesling is working to keep her seat on the city council this election cycle. Campaigns cost money,Ž she said. The goal is to reach the voters with your message and to be effective you need advertising, materials, shirts, signs, etc.Ž Keesling has raised $21,792 during the primary and general elections so far „ 52 percent of which has come from individuals and 43 percent from businesses. Her opponent Debby Carey has raised $11,390, 81 percent coming from individual contributions, and 10 percent from businesses. A majority of her donors are retired. Airport Authority candidates Coppola and Makray have not raised more money since the primary election, though Coppola has spent $377.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 5FROM PAGE ONEdo so from a position of personal experience? The Times asked all candidates for statewide of“ce if they have ever smoked marijuana, and if their experiences with the drug have in”uenced their views on marijuana policy. Four of the 12 candidates acknowledged prior marijuana use, including the Democratic nominee for governor, Andrew Gillum. Many years ago,Ž his spokesperson Johanna Cervone said. Gillum has advocated for legalizing marijuana and taxing it. Our policy on marijuana is informed by medical science and a reasonable approach to criminal justice,Ž Cervone said. Five candidates said they have never smoked. Three wouldnt respond, all Republicans: gubernatorial nomi nee Ron DeSantis, his running mate Jeanette Nez and Ashley Moody, a candidate for attorney general. In a primary debate, DeSantis came out against legalization. Frieds Republican opponent in the race for agriculture commissioner, Rep. Matt Caldwell acknowledged past usage as well. I have tried cannabis, however its not for me,Ž said Caldwell, a co-sponsor of the 2014 bill that “rst allowed non-euphoric medical cannabis for select patients. Caldwell is skeptical of smokable marijuana for medical use. Rep. Sean Shaw, the Democratic nominee for attorney general, told the Times he has smoked too, but added: It does not shape my views at all.Ž Once a nonstarter for those seeking of“ce, admission of prior marijuana use among politicians has shifted along with the countrys acceptance of the drug. Bill Clinton as a candidate for president in 1992 famously, if not clunkily, declared, I didnt inhale it.Ž By 2008, President Barack Obamas nonchalant acknowledgement of smoking as a teen was a well-known anecdote in his biography. While it is no longer remarkable that candidates for elected of“ce have smoked marijuana and will admit to it,Ž Fried said, it bears noting that the over 126,000 legal, medical marijuana patients in Florida are prohibited from smoking.Ž If there is a commonality among the small sample of candidates who admitted to marijuana use, it is age. Fried, Caldwell, Gillum and Shaw are all between 37 and 40 years old. Meanwhile, the two oldest candidates running in 2018, Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, both said they didnt smoke. Scott, 65, is challenging Nelson, 76, for his Senate seat. This generational gap exists among the general population, too. While 58 percent of 35to 39-year-olds said they have used marijuana in their lifetime, less than one-third of senior citizens have. Yet, there has been a sudden surge of frequent marijuana use among those nearing retirement age over the last decade. Americans between 55 to 64 were once among the least regular marijuana users; now, baby boomers are as likely to have smoked in the last month as millennials. Researchers have at least partly attributed that spike to medical marijuana, now available in 31 states, including Florida. Yet, two years after Sunshine State voters overwhelmingly gave the green light to medical cannabis here, the issue is far from settled. While none of the statewide candidates for of“ce have advocated reversing course, some have said the state needs to do more. Nelson said he has never smoked but said if a doctor believes thats the best way to treat a patient, the state shouldnt stand in the way. Im going on the evidence of the medical experts who have pointed out its a way of dealing with pain without getting the addiction that the other drugs would,Ž Nelson said. With Scott as governor, Florida has blocked smokable marijuana. His reticence to embrace a more liberal drug policy comes from a personal experience of substance abuse in his family, spokesperson Lauren Schenone said. He knows “rsthand what a heartbreaking burden it can be on impacted individuals and their loved ones,Ž Schenone said. Of the Florida cabinet positions, only the race for chief “nancial of“cer featured two candidates who said they have never used marijuana. Both the incumbent Republican, Jimmy Patronis, and Democratic challenger, former state Sen. Jeremy Ring, responded by noting that they havent used other illegal drugs either. However, its an of“ce that oddly enough is likely to have some role in the future of marijuana regulation. Many of the marijuana businesses setting up shop here have trouble getting access to traditional banking. The federal government still considers marijuana an illegal drug and President Donald Trumps administration has signaled it may crackdown on companies that do business with a nefarious industry. Patronis said that concerns him, and Ring said he supports the state chartering a depository for these companies. While I dont have any personal experience with marijuana, during my 10 years in the Florida Senate I often met with parents whose children suffered from any a number of chronic illnesses for which they believe marijuana is the most effective treatment,Ž Ring said. Those experiences with parents „ often times in tears „ have stuck with me since.Ž Here is how each candidate for statewide of“ce answered questions about marijuana:US SENATE Bill Nelson, Democrat (i)Have you ever smoked marijuana? No. How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? Im going on the basis of the science and the medical experts that it helps. For example, theres a lady in Sarasota that has had ALS for years and ALS is a withering of the motor nerves and what the marijuana does is help her lessen the saliva that would otherwise choke her. Im going on the evidence of the medical experts who have pointed out its a way of dealing with pain without getting the addiction that the other drugs would.ŽRick Scott, RepublicanHave you ever smoked marijuana? No. How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? Spokesperson Lauren Schenone: As Governor Scott has often shared, substance abuse was something that impacted his own family growing up, and he knows “rsthand what a heartbreaking burden it can be on impacted individuals and their loved ones. In regards to medical marijuana „ the state has been working nonstop to implement the law that was passed by the Florida Legislature with an overwhelming bipartisan majority.ŽGOVERNOR Andrew Gillum, DemocratHave you ever smoked marijuana? Spokeswoman Johanna Cervone: Yes, many years ago.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? Cervone: Our policy on marijuana is informed by medical science and a reasonable approach to criminal justice. Marijuana should be regulated, taxed, and available to suffering Floridians seeking treatment prescribed by doctors.ŽRon DeSantis, RepublicanSpokesman Stephen Lawson: Were going to decline to comment.ŽLIEUTENANT GOVERNOR Chris King, DemocratHave you ever smoked marijuana? Spokeswoman Johanna Cervone: He hasnt.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? Cervone: He agrees with Mayor Gillum that its past time to regulate and tax it.ŽJeanette Nez, RepublicanSpokesman Stephen Lawson: Were going to decline to comment.ŽATTORNEY GENERAL Sean Shaw, DemocratHave you ever smoked marijuana? Yes, I have.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? It does not shape my views at all. Floridians voted 72 percent to approve the amendment, thats what shapes my view on this „ 72 percent of the voters, not Democrats, not Republicans. The vast majority of Floridians want hurt patients to get access to it and the legislature and the governor says you cant smoke it, you cant grow it, you cant get it like you need it. Thats what shapes my views on this.ŽAshley Moody, RepublicanSpokesperson Christina Johnson: We will not be responding.ŽAGRICULTURE COMMISSIONERNikki Fried, DemocratHave you ever smoked marijuana? Of course I have. And while its no longer remarkable that candidates for elected of“ce have smoked marijuana and will admit to it, it bears noting that the over 126,000 legal, medical marijuana patients in Florida are prohibited from smoking medical marijuana. Efforts by the Scott administration and Legislature to deny the will of Floridians on smoking „ and in their general obstruction when it comes to patient access „ was one of the things that motivated me to run for of“ce this year.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? Far more so than my personal experience using marijuana, its been my experience as an advocate thats informed my commitment to compassionate, patient-focused medical marijuana policies. Ive met people “ghting stage-four cancer, parents desperate to provide their sick children with relief, and patients suffering from all kinds of terrible illnesses„its one of the reasons Ive been such a strong advocate for medical marijuana. This is a plant that can improve peoples quality of life and saves lives. The fact that Tallahassee politicians think they should make decisions about patient treatment is absurd.ŽMatt Caldwell, RepublicanHave you ever smoked marijuana? I have tried cannabis, however its not for me.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? I became an advocate for medical cannabis because I saw the clear and demonstrable need. I will continue to “ght for patient access to safe and effective cannabis-based treatment options.ŽCHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER Jeremy Ring, DemocratHave you ever smoked marijuana? I have never used „ smoked or otherwise „ any non prescription drugs including marijuana.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? While I dont have any personal experience with marijuana, during my 10 years in the Florida Senate I often met with parents whose children suffered from any a number of chronic illnesses for which they believe marijuana is the most effective treatment. Those experiences with parents „ often times in tears „ have stuck with me since and I find it offensive that the legislature has watered down the will of the people and has dragged its feet to implement Amendment 2. Not only is it the right and compassionate thing to do, its also a right guaranteed by our state constitution. As I have also stated publicly, I support the Cabinet establishing a state chartered depository institution for medical marijuana companies.ŽJimmy Patronis, Republican (i)Have you ever smoked marijuana? Ive never used any illegal drugs „ including marijuana.Ž How has your experience with the drug shaped your view on marijuana policy? When I served in the Florida House of Representatives, I voted to allow usage of noneuphoric medical marijuana because I know we must show compassion to those suffering. I believe in supporting science. If the evidence shows that there are medicinal bene“ts to marijuana, then I support doing what is best for patients according to scienti“c research. I am also concerned that there is currently no bank in the State of Florida that accepts deposits from medical marijuana companies here.Ž (i) = indicates incumbent Political editor Adam C.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018VIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to letters@sun-herald.comOUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We should listen to abuse victimsEditor: Just read a letter referring to the terrible things the accusers are doing to Mr. Kavanaugh and his family. First of all, the accusers said nothing about his family, they did not disrespect them in any way, Mr. Kavanaugh did. All he had to do as soon as these accusations came out was call for a complete investigation by the FBI. This could have proven his innocence and his family would not have had to go through this. It also could have proven his guilt which may have been the reason he didnt ask for the investigation. What is also interesting is the Bill Cosby case; when it “rst started he was denying all these terrible things and his supporters were saying how vicious his accusers were. He will be spending three to 10 years in prison and did we ever hear any of the hundreds of priests come out and admit their guilt of the vile things they did to children? No, they attacked the accusers. This country needs to stand up for the victims as vigorously as we do the accused.John Lenigan North PortRanchettes cant support an MSBUEditor: The county no longer forces people building new homes in the ranchettes to install drain pipes at the end of their driveway. It appears county commissioners are going to quit doing anything to maintain the roadways in the ranchettes. The county wants the residents of the ranchettes to pay for all road improvement through the MSBU, which is impossible. In fact, the ranchettes is not a recognized sub division. There are public meetings Oct. 16 and 23, both at 6 p.m., at South County Regional Park, Punta Gorda. The newspaper has been referring to new affordable housing. Why not consider manufactured housing here a three-bedroom with lot at $100,000 or less? This would be a lot cheaper than the apartments on Airport Road. The most recent master plan for the Charlotte ranchettes was produced in the year 1966. Charlotte County has been pondering ranchettes road maintenance for 62 years. There is no other parcel in Charlotte County that has the number of large vacant lots as the ranchettes. If the county built roads and drainage the lots would be sold rapidly. The county would get all their investment back, plus new taxes far into the future. Was Midway or Veterans funded by residents residing there? If all the roads in Charlotte County had to be “nanced by MSBU funds, there would be no roads in Charlotte County.Lee Starcher Punta Gorda Keep shining star of Charlotte schoolsEditor: Where I grew up in the north, where many of you did as well, our school district was a bright, shining star on the horizon. It provided hope for a prosperous future for all our community to take part in. Our parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors all knew that a properly funded education was the way to that future. Farmers, business owners, blue collar and white, were all proud of and supported the schools where most of them attended. As we grow tired of the cold and retire to the great state of Florida, it is sometimes hard to associate with the local school district because we are no longer feel the personal involvement we once did. As our state legislators continue to cut funding to public education year after year, I watch as my colleagues retire or leave for better pay and bene“ts to neighboring communities. We can no longer attract the highly effective teachers we need. Please keep our bright, shining star on the horizon burning bright and support the Charlotte County school referendum on Nov. 6.Thomas Park EnglewoodThrowing away our tax moneyEditor: Its OK all you polluters of Lake Okeechobee. The taxpayers are going to build you a reservoir so you can continue your pollution, and when the reservoir gets “lled will dump it into the Keys and kill everything there. Does this make any sense at all? What is wrong with these people? You go after the polluters and get the problem solved from the front, not with a Band-Aid from the back. What is wrong with you people? This has been going on for how many years? And now we need a reservoir? A reservoir for what? This is unbelievable how stupid society has become when it isnt the governments money to spend. It is our money, our hard-earned tax money, so just keep throwing it away.Gerald Benedict North PortLonger classes in the school dayEditor: I am writing in response to a recent letter, simple solution.Ž The writer states that the referendum (no, the word was not used, but it was clear) will give Charlotte County school employees an increase in pay, which I do not dispute. However, what the writer fails to address is that the increase would be directly related to increasing the school day (and work day) by 2.5 hours a week in order to expand instructional time for students. Sarasota County has proven over the last 15 years that this time is valuable and signi“cant. The difference of a class going from 47 minutes to an hour may not seem like a lot to anyone outside of education, but the added time has an impact. Yes, many Charlotte County Schools employees work a second job and the pay is lower than Sarasota, but this referendum is about more. It is about recognizing that the best way to prepare Charlotte County students for whatever futures await them is to give them as much instructional time as possible. I live in Sarasota County and am proud to be employed by Charlotte County schools and honored to teach the children of this community.Kimberly Pruey North PortEditorial cartoon was offensiveEditor: I recently read John Hackworths column about the death of an inmate in a Florida prison and was most impressed with the quality of the article. Then, you printed an editorial cartoon that I found vile, disgusting and totally disrespectful to sexual assault victims. How can you support the current dialogue supporting boys will be boys. A recent letter writer said she was concerned with men being emasculated. Perhaps that is what is needed in this chauvinistic society. Mens behavior needs to change. I choose not to be offended by this type of editorial cartoon.R. Alan Holbach Port Charlotte When weighing your vote on constitutional Amendment 4, keep in mind these two Floridians: One is Neil Volz, a middleaged white man who is a conservative and a former congressional chief of staff. The other is Desmond Meade, a liberal, African-American, also middle-aged, once homeless and destitute but now a law school graduate. While working in Congress, Volz was involved in the Jack Amramoff lobbying scandal. He cooperated with prosecutors and was sentenced to probation. Years ago, Meade went to prison on drug and weapons charges. Both men were convicted of felonies. Both have satis“ed all conditions of their sentences. Both are now productive, hardworking citizens. Yet, despite having fully repaid their debt to society, neither can participate in a fundamental activity open to other American citizens: They cant vote. Volz and Meade have led the charge to do away with state law that excludes felons from voting, serving in public of“ce or on a jury. They helped the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition mount a successful petition drive to include Amendment 4 on this years ballot. The proposed amendment would restore the rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all of their sentence including parole or probation.Ž The measure speci“cally excludes people convicted of murder or sex crimes. An estimated 1.6 million Floridians are now unable to vote due to prior felony convictions, according to a 2016 study. That is an astounding number. As the system operates now, those convicted of felonies must wait at least “ve years after completing sentences before they can petition the governor and Cabinet to have voting rights restored. After that long wait, they still must await the judgement of a “stful of elected of“cials on the Board of Executive Clemency. This, despite the fact they have fully paid their debt as the law requires. In Meades case, prison turned his life around. He got out and attended community college, then got a law degree from Florida International University. As he told the Atlantic magazine, his story shows the power of restoration, because I can go from a homeless crack addict to an attorney.Ž Ex-felon Volz is now chairman of his countys homeless coalition and works in a drug and alcohol recovery program. He applied for the restoration of his rights once but was told he hadnt properly “lled out his paperwork. So, frustrated, he quit trying and started campaigning for change for all. In his view, the current system punishes offenders long after they have satis“ed the terms of their convictions. People who have paid their debt back to society and done everything that the judicial system asked them are not fully able to participate in their communitiesŽ if they cant vote, he told the Atlantic. Yet if we all got in buses and moved to Texas tomorrow, we could vote there.Ž Thats wrong. Thats unfair, unproductive and unhealthy for a society that believes in the power of rehabilitation. It leaves something we believe to be a societal right to the discretion of politicians. Take, for example, recent history. Gov. Jeb Bush first relaxed Floridas harsh procedures two decades ago. Gov. Charlie Crist went even further, automatically restoring the vote to nonviolent offenders following parole and probation. During Crists four years in office, a reported 155,315 ex-convicts regained voting rights. That changed under Gov. Rick Scott. In 2016, of the 3,188 people who applied for clemency, only 473 were approved. Seven years into his tenure, the Scott administration had granted roughly 2,600 requests. Total. More than 10,000 were awaiting resolution, according to PolitiFact. As the group Florida TaxWatch put it, The ban on felons voting rights is an outdated relic from the past and it puts Florida out of step with the vast majority of states.Ž It stands to reason that the more completely an ex-offender can be integrated back into society, the more likely it is that person will become a productive citizen instead of returning to prison.Ž We strongly agree. And reiterate the basic argument: When American citizens pay what is considered their debt to society, they are released from that debt. A civil society should restore an individuals right to participate in civil activities of that society. Automatically.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 7VIEWPOINT WEEK IN REVIEW There is a direct link from the work of my namesake and relative Susan B. Anthony, who fought for a womans right to vote in the mid1800s, and the modern-day suffragists urging us to pass Amendment 4 on the Florida ballot. Growing up, I was told the stories of Anthony and Lucy Stone, as well as Ida B. Wells and Frederick Douglass; people who fought for the right to vote for women and people of color. It always left me wondering what I would do if I were alive at a time when a whole class of people were denied the ability to have a say in our democracy. For the Sunshine State, this is not a rhetorical question. Florida is one of three states that inde“nitely bans former felons from voting, even after they have fully served their sentences. Amendment 4, the Second Chances Amendment, would repeal this Jim Crow era ban and re-enfranchise more than a million Floridians „ one in 10 of the states adults „ who have served their time but are still sentenced to a civil death. This would be the largest expansion of voting rights since women earned the right to vote in 1920. Alongside those childhood stories of our familys connection to voting rights, I was also raised a Unitarian Universalist, a faith where I now serve as national president. At the core of our faith is a belief that no one is ever cast out of the circle of love. One can make mistakes, lose ones way, but that never separates us from Gods love. As Universalists, we are taught that love, community, and forgiveness „ the possibility of redemption „ is essential for humanity and a healthy society. That is why to learn of people who have permanently lost their citizenship rights because they have come into contact with a criminal justice system that we know is uneven at best and discriminatory at worst rings so wrong to me. A parable I often draw on when I preach about forgiveness and redemption is that of the Prodigal Son. In the story, a younger son takes his inheritance early, leaves his family and squanders it all in wild living. Penniless and starving, the son returns home hoping to at least work as a servant for his father. Instead, when the father sees his son, he is “lled with compassion, and rather than punishing him, he welcomes him home, offering a new beginning. Yes, we may all struggle to live this unconditional love as fully as the father, but all of us, at different times in our lives, are in need of forgiveness and second chances. And just like in a family, society and community begin to fall apart without practices of restoration and redemption. In Florida, like in many states, too many people do not receive such a welcome. A criminal justice system that is not focused on successful re-entry can neither be considered just nor a service to our common good. Barriers to housing, employment, and the pride and ownership that comes with civic engagement erode our society rather than protect it. I myself have spent a short time in jail as a result of religious acts of conscience. I have witnessed “rst-hand how our criminal justice system dehumanizes and punishes. Ive known people beaten in jail and I carried scars on my wrists for years after, even though as a faith leader, I was handled with relativeŽ care. I am coming to Florida to support Amendment 4, because I do not want us to become a society where we so harden our hearts that ones citizenship, and democracy itself, is withheld as a life-long punishment with no chance for redemption. Even when politics frustrates me and I feel disheartened by leadership, I keep voting. I do it because I remember that someone fought hard for me to have this right. I remember the women who organized, who marched, who went to jail and faced torture so that I would have the right to vote. The 15th Amendment, which gave voting rights to African Americans, wasnt passed until 1870, after the Civil War. The rights it enshrined werent extended to women until 1920. Native Americans didnt gain the right to participate in elections until 1924. And it took the civil rights movement and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to overcome the legal barriers that prevented black Americans from fully participating in citizenship and democracy. Now in 2018, Floridians, more than a million of them, are “ghting hard for their voting rights. And I will be there to support them. As an American, we can see this moment as a chance to bring our laws closer in line with our highest values and proclamations. As a faith leader, I see this as a moment to bring the values of redemption more fully to our society for all citizens. Through the lens of criminal justice, Amendment 4 is a step forward toward a system with greater emphasis on rehabilitation, restoration, and re-integration. And as a relative of Susan B. Anthony, I see Amendment 4 as a crucial contribution to the democratic promise of this country, one that has never been achieved without people organizing and pushing for it. I will be in Florida because I do not believe that anyone should be permanently cast out. I will be there because the purpose of the 13th, 14th, 15th and 19th amendments was to prevent us from becoming the two Americas weve witnessed ourselves becoming. Amendment 4 will end disenfranchisement and strengthen democracy not just in Florida but nationwide. I ask that all those who can vote, vote yesŽ on Amendment 4, so that others too will have that right to vote again. The Rev. Susan FrederickGray is the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association based in Boston Massachusetts. She is a “rst cousin, “ve generations removed, of Susan B. Anthony, a leader of the womens suffrage movement. This column moved on the website opportunity to support Floridas modern-day suffragists FLORIDAPOLITICS.COMSUSAN FREDERICKGRAY If Sen. Ben Sasse is right „ he has not recently been wrong about anything important „ the nations mostdiscussed political problem is entangled with the least-understood public health problem. The political problem is furious partisanship. The public health problem is loneliness. Sasses new book argues that Americans are richer, more informed and connectedŽ than ever „ and unhappier, more isolated and less ful“lled. In Them: Why We Hate Each Other „ and How to Heal,Ž Sasses subject is the evaporation of social capitalŽ „ the satisfactions of work and community. This re”ects a perverse phenomenon: What has come to count as connectedness is displacing the real thing. And matters might quickly become dramatically worse. Loneliness in epidemic proportionsŽ is producing a loneliness literatureŽ of sociological and medical “ndings about the effect of loneliness on individuals brains and bodies, and on communities. Sasse says there is a growing consensusŽ that loneliness „ not obesity, cancer or heart disease „ is the nations number one health crisis.Ž Persistent lonelinessŽ reduces average longevity more than twice as much as does heavy drinking and more than three times as much as obesity, which often is a consequence of loneliness. Research demonstrates that loneliness is as physically dangerous as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and contributes to cognitive decline, including more rapid advance of Alzheimers disease. Sasse says, Were literally dying of despair,Ž of the failure to “ll the hole millions of Americans feel in their lives.Ž Symptoms large and small are everywhere. Time was, Sasse notes, Americans stocked their imaginations with the same thingsŽ: In the 1950s, frequently 70 percent of television sets in use tuned in to I Love Lucy.Ž Today, when 93 percent of Americans have access to more than 500 channels, the most-watched cable news program, Hannity,Ž has about 1 percent of the U.S. population. In the last quarter of the 20th century, the average number of times Americans entertained at home declined almost 50 percent. Americans are hyperconnected but disconnected, with fewer non-virtual friends than at any point in decades.Ž With the median American checking (according to a Pew survey) a smartphone every 4.3 minutes, and with nearly 40 percent of those 18 to 29 online almost every waking minute, we are addicted to distractionŽ and parched for genuine community.Ž Social media, those tendrils of resentmentŽ that Sasse calls accelerants for political anger, create a nuance-free outrage loopŽ for professional rage-peddlers.Ž And for people for whom enemies have the psychic value of giving life coherence. Work, which Sasse calls arguably the most fundamental anchor of human identity,Ž is at the beginning of a staggering level of cultural disruptionŽ swifter and more radical than even Americas transformation from a rural and agricultural to an urban and industrial nation. At that time, one response to social disruption was alcoholism, which begat Prohibition. Today, one reason the average American life span has declined for three consecutive years is that many more are dying of drug overdoses „ one of the diseases of despairŽ „ annually than died during the entire Vietnam War. People need to be needed,Ž but McKinsey & Co. analysts calculate that, globally, 50 percent of paid activities „ jobs „ could be automated by currently demonstrated technologies. Americas largest job category is driverŽ and, with self-driving vehicles coming, two-thirds of such jobs could disappear in a decade. This future of accelerating ”ux exhilarates the educated and socially nimble. It frightens those who, their work identities erased and their communities atomized, are tempted not by what Sasse calls healthy local tribesŽ but by political tribalism of grievances, or by chemical oblivion, or both. In todays bifurcated nation, 2016 was the 10th consecutive year when 40 percent of American children were born outside of marriage, America has two almost entirely different cultures,Ž exempli“ed by this: Under 10 percent of births to college-educated women are outside of marriage compared to almost 70 percent of births to women with high school diplomas or less. Repairing Americas physical infrastructure, although expensive, is conceptually simple, involving steel and concrete. The crumbling of Americas social infrastructure presents a daunting challenge: We do not know how to develop what Sasse wants, new habits of mind and heart ... new practices of neighborliness.Ž We do know that more government, which means more saturation of society with politics, is not a suf“cient answer. Sasse, a “fth-generation Nebraskan who dedicates his book to the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs and other little platoons of Fremont, Nebraska (population 26,000), wants to rekindle the hometown-gym-ona-Friday-night feeling.Ž But Americans cant go home again to Fremont.

Page 10 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS BY WINK NEWSA Charlotte County “re“ghter accused recently of video voyeurism was arrested again on new charges Friday, the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce said. Perry R. Carter, 33, was arrested a week ago for video voyeurism after allegedly recording his house sitter with a hidden camera in his bathroom, according to the SCSO. Now, Carter faces additional charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and a single count of video voyeurism. The investigation revealed he engaged in sexual activity with a 17-year-old and recorded the interaction without her knowledge, according to SCSO. Carter was being held at the Sarasota County Jail Saturday on $28,500 bond. Following his arrest earlier this month, Charlotte County Fire & EMS provided the following statement to WINK News: Charlotte County Fire & EMS is aware of the arrest of an employee. The individual has been placed on administrative leave and an internal investigation is being conducted. We do not have any further comment or information to release.Ž Carters occupation was listed as “re“ghter for his Oct. 5 arrest, and then listed as consultant for his arrest Friday, according to SCSO Jail records online.Charlotte firefighter accused of new charges CARTERThe Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: € Brian Sean Christin, 26, 12000 block of Venetian Dr., Punta Gorda.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy ANGEL ALBRINGSUN CORRESPONDENTCerelle Valerio of North Port brought her daughter, Isabelle, 8, to volunteer at New Hope Community Church in North Port on Saturday. That was because she wants to teach Isabelle about the joy of giving back. Every second Saturday of the month, New Hope holds the Hope for North PortŽ event from from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church, located at 5600 South Biscayne Drive, in North Port, to give free lunch, clothing, haircuts, toiletries and information about community services to those in need. I am here because I want to be an active part of the community and to teach my daughter the joy of giving to others,Ž Valerio said. In order to keep that joy and love of God, we also have to share it with those in need, and this event allows the opportunity to give back.Ž Daniel Chiles of Memphis has lived in North Port for 13 years and said that he volunteers with New Hope Church six days a week. On Saturday, he was volunteering his services by giving free haircuts. I enjoy helping people. That is really why I am here,Ž Chiles said. Mary Foraker of North Port volunteers at the event, too. I feel like it is something that God is doing and I want to be a part of that. I want to be a helping hand for those in need,Ž Foraker said. Other volunteers included various area businesses, like JFCS Families, Connect Hearing, the Loveland center, Hollys Hope, and more that were on hand to give out information about community services to bene“t those in the community. For example, Connect Hearing signed people up for free hearing screens, and JFCS Families gave out information on free relationship and communication classes.The Universal Crescent Clinic provided internal medicine, pediatric services, physical exams, vision screenings for children, nutrition, dental checks and blood pressure screenings. Dr. Shahnaz Ahmed, director of Universal Crescent Clinic, said that this was the “rst time the Clinic volunteered at New Hopes quarterly wellness clinic, but that the doctors and nurses would volunteer again. She said that Universal Crescent Clinic is registered with Florida state to administer health clinics to patients with no insurance, which they do every Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and all that is required is for patients to “ll out a medical form. Debbie Ranallo, coordinator of Helping Hands with New Hope Community Church, said that even with all of these volunteers, they need more. We do this the second Saturday of every month, and we begin setting up at 10:15 a.m. and we start serving at 11 a.m. Usually, there is only one man and four women trying to get all of these heavy tents up in 45 minutes, and its a struggle,Ž Ranallo said. So, we could de“nitely use help, even if people want to just come out and help us get set up and going. That would be a huge relief.Ž Ranallo said that the need for volunteers increases in the winter months, because they serve more people. This Saturdays event had a lower-than-normal turn out, with about 50 people coming through for free services and food, because of other events being hosted in the area, but Ranallo said the church usually serves 80-100 people. In November, New Hope will be partnering with other churchs to do its 12th Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner, in addition to the second Saturday community event and the other 15 outreach services that the church participates in. Larry Grant is in charge of the Thanksgiving dinner, and Scott Bryant cooks the turkeys for the dinner. Grant said last years dinner served 1,100 people, both at the church and with home deliveries. Bryant said they cooked 165 turkeys. This year, they plan to serve 2,500 people and they have partnered with other churches to feed more people on Thanksgiving day. Grant said they need more volunteers to make this ambitious goal happen. We have other churches coming in and we are working together, but that is a lot of people to feed and we do deliveries to peoples homes, so we could use all the help we can get,Ž Grant said. To volunteer for the Thanksgiving Day food event, contact Grant at 941-549-3902. To sign up to receive a free meal, call 941-276-5770.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBy THYRIE BLAND FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESSThe wheels on the shuttle go round and round even when nobody is driving it. A self-driving, electric shuttle takes students to school once a week at Babcock Ranch, the solar-powered community north of Fort Myers straddling the LeeCharlotte County line. I think its cool that somebody invented that,Ž said Molly Murphy, 7, a second-grader. The yellow shuttle with drawings on its side picks up students each Friday around 7:30 a.m. and takes them to Babcock Neighborhood School. An attendant is on board as the shuttle slowly makes its way to the school. The ride is only a few minutes. At 2:45 p.m., the shuttle picks up students at the school and returns them to a shuttle stop. I feel like I am ushering people into a new era,Ž said Jason Perez, the shuttle services chief operator. The shuttle is part of a lofty plan for autonomous vehicles at Babcock. Its plan is to introduce a service that will allow its residents to call for driver-less vehicles through an app, said Natalee Burns, a project coordinator for Kitson & Partners. What we always say is the ultimate goal is that you will live here and you wont need to own your own personal vehicle „ that we will have a transportation system that is so compelling thats all you will need to get around on-site or off-site,Ž Burns said. Transdev operates the shuttles at Babcock. EasyMile manufactured them. Self-driving vehicles are being tested in several cities across the country. When a pedestrian died after being hit by one in March in Arizona, some questioned if they are safe. The school shuttle has sensors on it that can detect obstacles, and the vehicle can come to a stop on its own, Perez said. Basically the response, I think, its 30 times quicker than a human being,Ž he said. Perez carries what looks like an oversize yellow remote control using a shoulder strap. He can use the remote to take control of the shuttle if needed. The unit has two joysticks „ one that takes the shuttle left or right and another that moves it forward and reverse. Like my mom says, The video games paid off,Ž he said. Perez said he thinks driver-less vehicles are going to be common in the future. I just think about the lives that we could save in the future,Ž he said. We are not worried if the person driving is drunk or under the influence of any kind.Ž Autonomous shuttles began operating at Babcock in January. Visitors can take a tour of Babcock on a shuttle while an attendant points out the communitys features. The school shuttle started operating three weeks ago. Parents and their children went on a trial run on the vehicle before it started taking students to school. It was very slow, but it was very neat,Ž Babcock resident Kacia Murphy, 40, said. You felt very safe.Ž Murphys children „ Molly, Brody, 9, and Cole, 12, „ rode the bus Friday morning. The children walk to school or ride their bicycles on the days the shuttle does not run. The shuttle looks much different than a traditional school bus. Its doors slide open rather than swing open. The shuttle doesnt have a stop arm, but it does have a bell that rings. It is much smaller than a bus. There are six seats on the shuttle and standing room.

Judging from the photos, it is very attractive and appears to be in good shape. Zillow has it posted as a Pre-foreclosureŽ listing. There is no list price shown, but there is a pre-foreclosure estimate and a Zestimate. How do I find the list price, and how would I proceed if I want to make an offer? Answer: Im sorry, but that home is not for sale. And contrary to those attractive listing photos, this is an abandoned home that has fallen into a scary stage of disrepair. Zillow does list a contact agentŽ phone number. When I called her for information on the listing, she was like a deer in the headlights. Not only was it not her listing, she couldnt find anyone in her office who knew anything about it. This is a classic case of the confusion that non-MLS search engines like Zillow create. It is unlikely that even the home owner knows his home is listed on Zillow. I visited the home. There were no signs that the yard has been maintained during the past year. There was a faded eviction notice posted on the front door, and no sign of furnishings through the open curtains. The pool deck was covered by what appeared to be a thick layer of black mold. The pool itself had been drained and covered. Zillow is correct in labeling this home as being in pre-foreclosure. Pre-foreclosure status means that the lender is taking legal action to repossess the home from the owner. This is most often because the owner has stopped making payments. In some cases, the owner can modify the loan terms and keep the house. But even if the lender agrees to a loan modification, statistics show most borrowers slip back into pre-foreclosure within a year. Most often, the process continues until the lender is given ownership of the home by the legal system. Ive seen cases where this has taken 5 years or longer, although that was in 2010 when the courts were backlogged with waves of foreclosures. I dont know why Zillows policy is to post pre-foreclosures. The photos, and even the description of the home, were copied from an old listing of the home when it was occupied and well-maintained. Posting a number for the agent to contact infers the agent is the listing agent. But as I discovered, that agent had zero knowledge of the home and was at a loss as to why her number was posted. This pre-foreclosure home will not be available until the lender gains legal ownership and possession. Typically, the lender will then rehabilitate the home before actively listing it. Up until 2013, you could find good deals in our area by buying them from the banks once the banks put them on the market. It was risky because some of these homes had mold and structural problems that were expensive to mitigate. However, many lenders today typically spend what it takes to return a home to normal condition, and then they list the home close to its market value. That has dramatically reduced the number of fixer-uppers available to flippers. Purchasing a bankowned home that has been repossessed through foreclosure requires more diligence from the buyer and her inspectors. Many of these homes were abandoned. That gives leaky roofs and other non-detected defects more time to do damage. Many lenders drain and cover the pool once they have repossessed the home. Remember all those PGI seawalls that imploded when Hurricane Irma drained the canals? A pool that remains empty too long can crack and suffer the same fate. So, in conclusion, I recommend that you focus on homes that are actively listed in the MLS. A listing in the MLS requires full knowledge and consent from the sellers and the listing agent. Your Realtor can create a private portal for you that displays all legitimate, MLS listings. You will also receive real-time alerts when new listings matching your criteria become available.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSORMortgage lenders offer special deals to doctors „ some doctors, anyway. I am a doctor but I am not eligible for any special loan programs because my doctorate is in economics. Economists and others with doctorates in philosophy have no special features that make them attractive as mortgage borrowers. On the other hand, lenders view physicians as especially attractive borrowers, and many lenders court them. Why? Because they have preset career paths with well-de“ned increases in income. For example, the physician whose inquiry stimulated me to write this article told me he was in the “nal year of a three-year residency, had signed on for three additional years of subspecialty training during which his income will increase 5 percent per year, and after those three years his income will increase by a factor of “ve! This career path, which is typical, makes physicians relatively immune to the market hazards that may threaten the ability of most other borrowers to pay their mortgage. Another attractive feature of physicians as borrowers is that lenders can target physicians and market their services to them well in advance of the physicians need for funds. Are there any other professions that qualify for preferential treatment? Yes but it varies lender to lender. Most if not all lenders who offer special loan programs to physicians extend them to dentists as well. Some will include podiatrists and veterinarians; a smaller number include optometrists, accountants and attorneys. I even found one that covered registered nurses. But none covered economists. One important concession made to physicians is the reduction or elimination of a down payment requirement, without a mortgage insurance requirement. Of some 10 lenders I checked, seven required no down payments on loans up to $650,000 to $750,000 or thereabouts. The other three offered ”exibleŽ requirements. As a point of comparison, non-physician borrowers who take conventional loans must put 20 percent down to avoid mortgage insurance. Veterans are eligible for no-down payment loans under the VA program, but they pay a guarantee fee. FHA borrowers must put 3 percent down and pay an insurance premium. In addition, the maximum loan amounts available on FHA, VA and conventional loans underwritten by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are signi“cantly lower than those available on physician loans. Another important concession made to physicians is the acceptance of anticipated income in evaluating their ability to pay. On all other mortgage loans, ability to pay is based strictly on past and current income. Anticipated income is not considered because it is viewed as too chancy. But with physicians, the path to future income is so well de“ned that lenders are willing to use it. Are physician loans priced lower? The short answer is that I do not know; they could be priced lower or higher. The 18 lenders who present their physician loan programs on https:// physician-mortgageloans/ explain their programs in considerable detail, but none of them say anything about prices. Here is how a physician can shop for a physician loan: € You must “rst decide the kind of mortgage you want, which may require a little homework on my website, www. € Go to the site shown above and identify four or “ve lenders that offer the down payment and maximum loan that meets your needs, and verify that they operate in your state. € You must obtain price quotes from all of them on the same day because lenders reset their prices every day. € A price quote includes the interest rate, points and “xed-dollar fees. On adjustable rate mortgages, pricing is more complicated and you would do well to read Borrower Guide to Adjustable Rate MortgagesŽ on my website.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy DEBORAH KEARNSBANKRATE.COMBuying a home is a major life milestone, right up there with snagging a dream job or “nding true love. Your heart might be set on becoming a homeowner, but red ”ags might indicate youre not yet ready to make the leap. For many, particularly millennials, homeownership represents much more than a “nancial investment. In a recent survey on millennial attitudes toward homebuying, 74 percent of millennials equate home ownership with stability. Although it will likely take them longer to meet their goal, 68 percent of millennial respondents said theyre likely to buy a home at some point in the future, the survey found. Whether its too much debt, a lack of savings or a roving lifestyle, there are several reasons why potential homeowners might want to delay a home purchase. Here are four of them „ and advice on how to overcome these obstacles.1. You have too much debtTo get approved for a mortgage, you must show you can handle all of the expenses of owning a home (including the ones that arent rolled into your monthly mortgage payments). You also have to meet your other “nancial obligations, and that might be a challenge if you already have a mountain of debt on your plate, says Jennifer Beeston, branch manager and vice president of mortgage lending with Guaranteed Rate. A lot of people approach buying a home in terms of whats the max they can afford,Ž Beeston says. With lenders guidelines getting looser, some will accept a debtto-income ratio of up to 50 percent, but thats based on your mortgage payment and debts that show up on your credit report in relation to gross income.Ž Beeston adds that DTI calculations dont take into account expenses such as schooling, daycare, income taxes, healthcare and retirement savings. How to overcome it: Pay down your debt to a manageable level. If youve accumulated a lot of debt over time, consider a personal loan to consolidate them into one streamlined, and preferably lower-interest, monthly payment. And avoid getting sucked into a new debt trap by cutting spending and diligently paying down debt. A debt consolidation calculator can help you determine how to strategically consolidate and pay down your debt.2. Your credit isnt stellarYour credit history and credit score are closely linked to the mortgage pricing youll receive „ and that impacts your monthly payments for the life of the loan, says Dan Green, CEO of Growella, a mortgage news and advice website. A good starting point is to give yourself a credit check-up to see where you stand. You can get you free credit report and score from Bankrate. If your credit score is not optimal, youll pay more for a mortgage,Ž Green says. Your credit score today will have a huge impact on the homes youre looking at and can afford. It may be sensible to wait to buy and work on your credit.Ž Lets do a quick calculation for two borrowers applying a 30-year, “xed-rate mortgage for $300,000 with 10 percent down. Jen has an excellent credit score and was offered a 4.75 percent interest rate and Sarah, who has a lower score, was offered a 5 percent interest rate. Sarahs monthly payments are roughly $41 more than Jens but where she really gets dinged is in overall interest paid. Shell pay nearly $15,000 more in interest of the loans lifetime because she didnt get a lower interest rate. How to overcome it: To boost your credit score, pay your credit cards and other debts on time. Ideally, credit cards should be paid off in full every month. Avoid opening new credit lines unless youre establishing a credit history. Finally, keep your credit utilization ratio to 30 percent or less of your available credit limit for each credit account. In other words, your balances shouldnt exceed 30 percent of your maximum credit limits. If youre emotionally and mentally ready to buy a home, theres likely a home you can buy. The catch: you might have to settle for less than your ideal home if your credit and “nances impact what you qualify for, Green points out.3. You dont have enough savingsBuying a house comes with a lot of upfront expenses that go beyond your monthly mortgage payment. Expect to pay 2 percent to 4 percent of a homes purchase price in closing costs. Plus, theres the down payment (anywhere from 3 percent to 20 percent of the purchase price, depending on your loan type) and moving expenses to factor in. But its the hidden costs of homeownership that take many new homeowners by surprise. These might include homeowners association dues, condo/assessment fees, routine maintenance, utility bills and major repairs. Ideally, homeowners should save roughly 1 percent of the homes purchase price each year for maintenance expenses, says Adam Smith, president of the Colorado Real Estate Finance Group. Many people dont have that kind of cash on hand. A recent Bankrate survey found that just 39 percent of Americans would pay for a $1,000 unexpected expense from savings. How to overcome it: To save more, pay yourself “rst by depositing a set amount from each paycheck into a savings account. If you have to start small, thats OK. Consider opening a high-yield savings account to accrue interest on your cash. Cut back on unnecessary spending such as monthly subscription services, eating out, impulse shopping and other “nancial vices. Depending on your income and credit pro“le, you may qualify for homebuyer assistance programs that can help you pay for a down payment and closing costs for a home.4. You want a carefree lifestyleIf youre someone who moves frequently, buying a home might not make “nancial or practical sense. Lifestyle plays a huge role in the decision to rent versus buy, Smith says. Remember that the bigger the house, the more maintenance and upkeep. If you want to keep things low-key, buying a condo or continuing to rent might make more sense until youre ready for more responsibility. Another thing to consider if you dont tend to sit still: it might be a hassle to sell your home or rent it out eventually. Home values can go up or down over time so there are no guarantees that youll be able to sell. How to overcome it: Take time to consider your lifestyle factors that impact your housing choices, including whether you plan to move around a lot, your ability keep up with and pay for ongoing maintenance, your commute, and current or future family needs. And take care with buying a house with a partner if you dont share similar “nancial and life goals, Beeston says. Dont rush to buy a house because youre reacting to a life event,Ž Beeston says. Take your time. Its a big purchase, and theres no guarantee youll get what you paid „ or more „ for it.ŽFour signs youre not ready to be a homeowner „ and what to do about it Look for volunteer opportunities in the paper SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY Cant find it anywhere?Dont give up … check the Classifieds! adno=3617348-1 EXPERT PLANNING ADVICE € VIEW STUNNING FILM FOOTAGEPreview the wonders of an Alaskan journey at this exciting multi-media presentation from AAA Travel.Or register at, Oct 18 € 2 pmCHARLOTTE HARBOR CONFERENCE CENTER 75 Taylor St. in Punta GordaRSVP to 941-627-1544Fri., Oct 19 € 2 pmVENICE COMMUNITY CENTER 326 Nokomis Ave. S. in VeniceRSVP to 941-493-2100 Pre P h h 18-TR-1244F Explore Trafalgars must-see travel destinations for the itinerary and package that are perfect for you.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy GARY M. SINGERSUN SENTINELQ: I inherited a property together with my brother. I live far from the property, and he keeps telling me he has it sold to the tenant, but months have gone by, and nothing is happening. Can I sell my half directly to the tenant and be done with it, or does it have to be both of us? „ Harold A: You can sell all or a part of any interest in real estate that you own unless you are restricted by an agreement not to. This means you can transfer your half of the property, or just a portion of your half, to anyone you want to. You need to be very clear with the buyer and disclose that you only own part of the property and, of course, you cannot transfer your brothers half. If there is a mortgage on the property, there would be a risk that the lender would demand immediate repayment, called a due on sale clause,Ž if you do this. Selling your half would not change your liability for any loan you signed for, even though you no longer own part of the house. Plus, it would be dif“cult for your buyer to get a new loan because he is only purchasing a half interest in the property. But if there is no existing mortgage and your buyer does not need a bank loan, you can do this. The buyer and your brother would now own it together, with the buyer standing in your shoes with all of the same rights and responsibilities you enjoyed. Since this ability to sell your portion is often undesirable, methods have been developed to restrict the ability of one co-owner to sell a portion. One such method is where the co-owners sign an agreement giving the other owners the right of “rst refusalŽ if another owner wants to sell the property. This would require that each owner give the others the opportunity to purchase the property on the same terms offered to a third-party purchaser. Another method is to title the property in a trustŽ and have the trust agreement contain agreed restrictions dealing with various problems that may happen when people jointly own a house, such as when one wants to sell, the roof needs replacing, or an owner passes away. As a practicing attorney, I speak with many people about problems that could have easily been avoided with a joint ownership agreement that was signed when everyone was getting along.

By ANDREW KHOURILOS ANGELES TIMES The average rate on a 30-year “xed mortgage is nearing 5 percent, following a surge this week that put borrowing costs at their highest level since 2011, according to Freddie Mac. The sharp increase in mortgage rates „ to 4.9 percent this week, from 4.71 percent last week and 3.91 percent a year ago „ stems from the same rise in the overall cost of borrowing that on Wednesday and Thursday sent stocks tumbling. The additional expense threatens to cause more would-be home buyers to hold off on a purchase. The rise in mortgage rates from last year adds $251 a month to what previously wouldve been a $2,685 monthly mortgage payment on a $535,000 house. Sam Khater, Freddie Macs chief economist, said rising rates and home prices are putting downward pressure on purchase demand.Ž The housing market was already softening. Nationwide, sales of previously owned homes have posted year-overyear declines for six straight months. In Southern California, sales last summer were the lowest in four years and the number of homes offered for sale is creeping up. Home price growth, though still strong, is also easing. Real estate agents say higher rates are one reason would-be buyers seem increasingly willing to submit low-ball offers or call it quits altogether. At the beginning of this year, rates surged over in”ation fears before ”attening out around 4.5 percent. Now rates are shooting up again, in part over expectations the Federal Reserve will keep lifting its key shortterm interest rate as the U.S. economy grows stronger. Fadel Lawandy, director of the Hoag Center for Real Estate and Finance at Chapman University, said higher borrowing costs will likely mean even fewer home sales and slower price growth. But higher rates shouldnt derail the housing market. He noted the economy is healthy and rates are still low historically. Through much of last decade, the average rate on a 30-year “xed mortgage hovered in the 6 percent range. In the 1990s, rates peaked at 10 percent „ and a decade earlier, 18 percent. Its still much cheaper to borrow money than 10, 15 years ago,Ž he said. Like many other economists, Lawandy doesnt expect values to decline unless there is a recession, citing the persistent mismatch between supply and demand in California. But while Rick Palacios Jr., director of research at John Burns Real Estate Consulting in Irvine, doesnt expect declines like last decade, he said declines are a real possibility. Affordability is already at or near a breaking point in many Southern California communities, and rising mortgage rates could be the thing that tips prices downward. Falling home prices become more likely if people increasingly believe the market has peaked and cancel their home searches, thinking theyll wait for a better deal. More home builders are telling the consulting “rm they are seeing exactly that. Consumer psyche „ people understate how fast that that could change,Ž Palacios said. Judging the exact trajectory is particularly dif“cult now, because the market often slows in late summer and early fall before picking up in the spring. During the six-year upswing in prices, there have also been moments when the market paused, even in spring, and then accelerated again. But that was earlier in the economys recovery.Mortgage rates rise to a seven-year high Port Charlotte 1441 Tamiami Trail #101 € 941-629-2639Visit us online at: COME MEET FLO AND HER NEW MANAGEMENT TEAM Available at participating locations only.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 5OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESBy ROGER BUTTONBUSINESS COLUMNISTVENICE „ Another Venice landmark has bit the dust. Contractors are tearing down the former Basketville store at 4411 S. Tamiami Trail. It is part of a 6.5-acre site, said Loyd Robbins, president of Harry Robbins Associates, Commercial Realtors. Ownership remains the same as it has been for years, said Robbins, who is working on several ideas with the owner to develop plans for the site. The owners determined the old building added no value to the property, so it was decided it would be better to tear it down. Built in 1964 with an area of 14,841 square feet, Basketville was a landmark for many years. Its big yellow sign with black writing was „ along with Cooks Sportland, which is still very much in business „ among the signs of civilization to greet travelers as they approached Venice from the south. Before Interstate 75 was completed in the mid-1980s, U.S. 41 was the main north-south route between Naples and Tampa. As its name implied, the store stocked thousand of baskets of all shapes, sizes and purposes. There were baskets suitable for gift-giving, decorator baskets for the home, laundry baskets and picnic baskets. The business closed several years ago. The property has been leased since, the most recent being Leaping Lizards, a childrens entertainment center which closed some time ago. Robbins said the nearby intersection of Jacaranda Boulevard at U.S. 41 has become a soughtafter retail area with the growth of Venice Village Shoppes and the Walmart Supercenter. Another recent addition to the area is the Wawa gas and convenience center at the junction of State Road 776 and U.S. 41. We see more than one major retailer on the former Basketville location which could also encompass smaller retailers,Ž said Robbins. We are preparing a master plan for property, because of its very good location on U.S. 41 at the junction of Woodmere Park Boulevard and the future growth of West Villages to the south.Ž The property fronts U.S. 41, known as South Tamiami Trail, together with the rear parcel and adjoining land to the south facing Woodmere Park Boulevard with Jacaranda Shopping Center with Target, Bealls and Staples.Former Basketville torn down in Venice The front of the soon-to-be torn down building that used to be Leaping Lizards and Basketville.

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

Page 10 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESOn a recent ”ight I was on, the ”ight attendant reminded everyone that we had several options for ”ying and we were thanked for choosing their airline. Suncoast Humane Society also knows that you have several options when selecting the right pet for your family. It is sad to note that only about 25 perent of our pets were adopted from an animal shelter. That is not a high percentage, but just look at the options an animal shelter has to compete with. Many people have their sights set on a certain purebred or designer dog and search out reputable breeders. Far too many buy from not-so-reputable breeders (bad idea), buy from a pet store (an even worse idea supporting cruel puppy-mill breeding). And more dangerous can be Free to Good HomeŽ ads, newspaper ads or Craigslist. There are horror stories regarding many of these advertised pets ending up in very cruel surroundings. Your best bet may be to adopt from a humane society, animal care and control agency, or a bona “de pet-rescue group, and the time could not be better. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. It is the perfect time to examine some of the many reasons why adopting your next pet is a great idea: € You will save a life. Nearly 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States, simply because too many people give up their pets and too few people adopt from shelters. The fact is, you may save two lives, the one you adopt and the next one “lling the space you have helped to provide at the shelter. € You have an excellent chance to get a healthy, well-adjusted pet. Pets adopted from Suncoast Humane Society have been evaluated for health, temperament, and behavior. They are up-to-date on needed vaccinations, and most importantly, are spayed or neutered. € Adopting saves you money. Adoption fees include the abovementioned health services. If you buy a pet, you need to add these expenses to the cost of buying the pet, which can be very expensive. € Adopting makes you feel good. Just check out our website and Facebook page, and see the people who have adopted and the smiles on their faces as they plan for years of fun devotion. Adopted pets have proven to be psychologically, emotionally, and physically bene“cial. They offer unconditional love. € You support an important community charity and encourage others to adopt. When your friends ask where you got your amazing pet, you can tell them from the Suncoast Humane Society, or one of the other animal shelters or rescue groups. Your adoption may convince others to visit and support our services and programs. Even though Adopt a Shelter DogŽ month is a canine affair, there are also far too many cats and kittens waiting for a special home. It may also be a good month to consider adopting your new feline best friend. Adopting a dog, cat or other pet from an animal shelter saves lives. Each month is a special month for each pet that is given that second chance at a quality life. Are you ready? Phil Snyder is executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society.

Page 12 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESTanzanias Olduvai Gorge occupies a special place in the story of humankind. This 30-mile long, steep-sided ravine, at the eastern end of the Serengeti Plains is where paleoanthropologists believe hominids, the family of great apes, evolved into hominins, or early humans who were more closely related to modern humans than chimpanzees. Its also where humans took their “rst meal, according to Martha Bireda, Ph.D., the founder and executive director of the Blanchard House Museum of African American History and Culture of Charlotte County. The African Roots of Southern Cooking,Ž her class at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy is part of the hidden history of the contribution that African food made to Southern and American cuisine,Ž Bireda said. The class is 10-11:30 a.m. Oct. 18 at the Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, Punta Gorda. This class is aimed at foodies,Ž Bireda said. Its for people who love food and like to experiment with different kinds of food. People who go out, try something new to eat then come home and try to cook it.Ž The class traces the African origins of some of the foods we eat today, such as okra, yams, blackeyed peas and watermelon, as well as cooking methods like one-pot meals and barbecuing, and recipes like fufu. I grew up with a girl whose mother made fufu, a starch added to a soup or stew,Ž Bireda said. Here in the United States fufu is made with ”our or cornmeal and water, while in Africa its made by pounding yams and mixing them with water. In both cases, the mixture, whether its made with ”our or yams and water, is formed into little dumplings and added to soups or stews.Ž Ultimately, African slave women cooking in the big houses of plantations introduced those foods, recipes and cooking methods to their Southern masters. Deep frying originated in Africa, using peanut oil, as a method of food preservation. Barbecue also comes from Africa, where they would put lamb, chicken or other small game on a stick and cook it over an open “re with sauce,Ž Bireda said. Africans, however, used meat for seasoning vegetables instead of as the main course. In Virginia, I grew up eating pinto beans seasoned with country ham on laundry day, as well as beans, corn and potatoes or mustard greens seasoned with country ham.Ž During the Great Migration (1916-70), African-Americans spread their unique culinary arts from the South to the Northeast, Midwest and West. Biredas class is offered in conjunction with the Blanchard House Museums 2018-19 exhibit The African Roots of Southern Cooking.Ž The museum is at 406 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, in Punta Gorda. Food brings people together. At the Blanchard House exhibit, we “nd people share many common likes,Ž Bireda said. I met a Haitian woman visiting the exhibit who ate all the foods I ate and prepared in the same ways that I ate growing up. I also met another woman from Missouri who, like me, grew up in Virginia eating wilted lettuce.Ž For more information or to register for The African Roots of Southern Cooking,Ž call 941-505-0130.FGCU class explores Africas influence on American cuisine By BETSY CALVERTSTAFF WRITERFamilies gathered at the Harvest Festival sponsored by Burnt Store Marketplace Saturday.

Having donned a pair of leather gloves, the good doctor opened the box and removed a 10-inch lizard, its stocky body covered with bright pink and black scales and its big head holding a pair of dark, menacing eyes and a forked tongue that ”ickered in and out like a snakes. Meet Bad Bill,Ž said the doctor as if introducing a favorite child. Hes a Gila monster, one of the few species of venomous lizards in the world.Ž Ah-ha,Ž said I, another poison, like curare, used as an anesthetic.Ž Nice try,Ž said he, but its not the Gila monster venom, but its saliva that is used in modern medicine.Ž Dr. Johnson explained that the diabetes medicine Byetta is derived from Gila monster saliva.

SEXTONFLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN CHARLOTTE COUNTYSlightly cooler weather and shorter days mark the transition from summer to fall and its also a sign that ”u season is here. It is critical that all Floridians do their part to prevent getting seasonal ”u and spreading it to others by getting the ”u vaccine as early as possible. Flu strains change from year to year so it is important to get the ”u shot this year even if you got one last year. Frequently washing your hands, staying home while sick, and receiving a ”u shot are the best ways to protect against and prevent the spread of the in”uenza virus,Ž said Joseph Pepe, Interim Health Of“cer for the Florida Department of Health in Charlotte County. The annual ”u vaccine is safe and remains the most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones. The ”u vaccine is recommended for everyone six months and older, including pregnant women. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop protection against the ”u so get your ”u shot early, preferably before Halloween. In addition to protecting yourself, receiving the ”u vaccine helps prevent the ”u virus from spreading to our most vulnerable populations, including older adults, pregnant women, children ages newborn to “ve and people who have existing medical conditions like asthma. Flu vaccines are free for children at the Florida Department of Healths immunization clinic, 1100 Loveland Blvd., Port Charlotte. A $10 administration fee will be billed to insurance carriers for clients who have coverage. Flu vaccines are free to all pregnant women as well. Clinic hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are available by calling 941-624-7200. Flu vaccine for adults is $25.78, which includes the $10 administration fee, and may be covered by Medicare or Medicaid. Remember to get your #VaccineBefore Halloween and help keep Florida #FluFree this season by getting you and your loved ones vaccinated against the ”u.

Pets affable nature and loving looks are enough for many people to welcome them into their homes, but the bene“ts of having a pet extend beyond their appearances and temperaments. € Pets can help prevent loneliness. Loneliness affects people of all ages, but it is particularly problematic among seniors. Older adults who may be isolated can bene“t from having a pet around. According to a study published in Aging & Mental Health, older adults who owned pets were 36 percent less likely to say they were lonely compared to those who didnt have an animal companion. € Pets can save lives. Pets can be trained to perform various tasks around the house and in the community. Rescue animals assist in “nding people after natural disasters. Medical alert pets can help people with debilitating illnesses and assist physically impaired people with everyday tasks. € Pets help lower allergy risks. Keeping pets around can reduce a childs likelihood of developing allergies by as much as 33 percent, according to a study by pediatrician James E. Gern that was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. People exposed early on to animals tend to develop stronger immune systems overall. € Pets provide socialization opportunities. A pet can be the common denominator to strike up new friendships and connect with others. Whether walking around the neighborhood or being part of a pet obedience class or interest group, pets can help their owners expand their social circles. € Pets can help combat stress. Talking to or stroking a pet can make stress easier to handle. A study from researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo found that, when conducting a stressful task, people experienced less stress when their pets were with them.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018By GREGORY N. WHYTECULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYS FITNESS CENTERBreathing is the most important of all the functions of the body. All the other functions depend upon it. Another way of seeing the signi“cance of breathing, is to visualize the concept that one of the very “rst things you did as you entered the physical realm was inhale, and the very last thing you will do before you leave it is exhale. Regrettably, as important as breathing is, not everyone breathes in a manner that facilitates good health. Diseases such as asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which includes bronchitis and emphysema are some of the more common manifestations of a compromised breathing system. When proper breathing is emphasized, many disorders of the respiratory system may be prevented. Furthermore, when breathing is at its best, the possibility exist that other systems of the body are more likely to be made more productive. A good example of this is the increased oxidative capacity of the body. Proper breathing will facilitate an increase in the amount of oxygen that is consumed. This increase, on the other hand, will cause an increase in the oxidation (burning) of the food that one consumes. The result will be an individual who is more energized, more “t and, quite possibly, healthier. Proper breathing is slow, deep (diaphragmatic) and rhythmic. It is best carried out with the following points in mind: € Unless there is an oxygen debt (the body is in need of oxygen and needs it quickly, such as when a runner is out-of-breathŽ), you should avoid breathing through your mouth. Nose breathing is healthier and more ef“cient. € Always ensure that you are breathing quietly, slowly, deeply and rhythmically through your nose. € When breathing correctly, the region of the abdomen (not the chest) will be most active. The following exercise should help you achieve this.Breathing Exercise No.1Place the left hand on the chest and the right hand on the abdomen. Breathing slowly, deeply and rhythmically, notice the hands as you inhale and exhale. If you are breathing correctly (diaphragmatically), the hand on your abdomen, and that only, should move. If the hand on the chest moves as you breathe, you are breathing thoracically and should pay more attention to deeper (abdominal) breathing. NOTE: simply rest the hands on the chest and abdomen; they should not be forced.Breathing Exercise No.2Perform the above exercise, but this time, instead of trying to determine which part of the body moves (abdomen or chest), you will now determine what happens to the body as you inhale and exhale. When you are breathing correctly, the abdomen should expand (rise) when you inhale and contract (fall) when you exhale. If you experience the reverse as you breathe, you should practice this exercise daily until the correct breathing pattern is second nature.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By LAURAN NEERGAARDAP MEDICAL WRITERSurgeons turned down Terra Goudge for the liver transplant that was her only shot at surviving a rare cancer. Her tumor was too advanced, they said „ even though Goudge had a friend ready to donate, no matter those odds. I have a living donor „ Im not taking away from anyone. Im trying to save my own life,Ž she pleaded. Finally, the Los Angeles woman found a hospital on the other side of the country that let the pair try. People lucky enough to receive a kidney or part of a liver from a living donor not only cut years off their wait for a transplant, but those organs also tend to survive longer. Yet living donors make up a fraction of transplants, and their numbers have plateaued amid barriers that can block otherwise willing people from giving. Among them: varying hospital policies on who qualifies and the surprising financial costs that some donors bear. Now researchers are exploring ways to lift those barriers and ease the nations organ shortage. We just want people to be given the chance to at least entertain this as a possibility,Ž said Dr. Abhinav Humar, transplant chief at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where Goudge ultimately received part of friend Amy Alecks liver. Thousands of people die each year waiting for an organ transplant. Nearly 14,000 are on the waiting list for a liver transplant. Of 8,082 transplants last year, just 367 were from living donors, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, or UNOS, which oversees the nations transplant system. Living kidney donations are more common but still not enough to meet the need. About 95,000 people are on the kidney waiting list. Of 19,849 transplants last year, 5,811 were from living donors. Also troubling, black and Hispanic patients are less likely than whites to receive a kidney from a living donor, and a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association earlier this year found the disparity is growing. One hurdle is economic. The transplant recipients insurance pays the donors medical bills. But donors are out of work for weeks recuperating. The U.S. Labor Department last month made clear that a donors job can be protected under the Family Medical Leave Act. But thats unpaid leave „ and donors lose income if their employer doesnt allow some form of paid time off. They also may have other expenses such as travel and hotel bills for visits to a far-away transplant center. One study found more than a third of living kidney donors reported lost wages in the first year following donation. The median amount was $2,712, particularly difficult if asking economically disadvantaged friends or family for an organ. Its a strange thing to tell you that donors have to pay for the privilege of donating their kidneys. I think most of us would agree thats just fundamentally wrong,Ž said Dr. Paige Porrett, a surgeon with the University of Pennsylvania. Penn is one of half a dozen transplant centers testing whether reimbursing a donors lost income could shorten the wait for a kidney. The communitys in a real bind about how we can help them,Ž Porrett said. Its a fine line that it doesnt get misconstrued that were paying people for their organs.Ž Another challenge: Living donation too often is considered as a last resort rather than a first choice, said Pittsburghs Humar „ especially for liver transplants. His hospital is trying to change that and last year performed more adult liver transplants from living donors than deceased ones, a milestone. The liver is unique, able to regenerate a few months after donors give a piece. But it is a larger and riskier operation than donating a kidney. And that sparks an ethical debate: Many people with failing livers arent allowed onto the national waiting list for organs from deceased donors. Thats because the scarce supply is rationed, given only to those with the best survival chances. But what if patients who dont qualify find a living donor? Should the donor be allowed to undergo a risky surgery if the recipients predicted survival isnt quite as good? Goudge, the California patient, had been fighting a rare condition called fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma since 2001. A variety of treatments kept her cancer in check for years but eventually it overwhelmed her liver. While Goudges condition isnt as aggressive as typical liver cancer, it was more advanced than transplant waiting list rules allow „ and the first surgeons she consulted said living donation wasnt an option either. Then she stumbled onto Pitts program. Humar says living donation could allow transplants for many patients who otherwise would never get one „ either because too many people are ahead of them on the waiting list or because they werent listed. After extensive evaluation of both patient and would-be donor, Humar decided Goudge had a good enough shot at prolonged survival to justify the risk to her friend. In April, his team replaced Goudges liver with a healthy piece of Alecks. Both recovered well. She is truly a walking miracle for me,Ž Goudge said.Doctors explore lifting barriers to living organ donation AP PHOTOThis 2018 family photo shows transplant recipient Terra Goudge, right and her friend, Amy Aleck, before a procedure where Alec k donated a piece of her healthy liver to Goudge. Goudge was turned down for a traditional transplant from a deceased donor, so the California women traveled to the University of Pittsburgh to nd a surgeon willing to perform a living donor transplant instead.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 MISSION NUTRITIONPerhaps because green beans are inexpensive and available yearround, is why they seem to be taken for granted. These versatile veggies are dense with vitamins, minerals, and “ber. Green beans also offer signi“cant levels of antioxidants, and contain zero fat and cholesterol, unless you decorateŽ them with bacon, cream, butter and/ or cheese. They are actually members of the legume family that includes beans, peas, and lentils. Green beans are the immature seeds and pods of various kinds of beans. A variety of green beans is widely available, so try them all: sting beans, pole beans, haricot verts and snap beans. These nutritious and delicious rascals are so multitalented you could enjoy a different recipe every day of the year. Eat them raw in vegetable salads, steam and consume them plain, or steam and combine with other ingredients to create hot or cold dishes. Please dont torment your green beans by cooking them immersed in water or baking them in a casserole this holiday season. When veggies are subjected to intense and prolonged heat they lose some of their nutrients. The solution is simple: you can easily mimic a green bean casserole by brie”y steaming them until tender-crisp (about 10 minutes), and then turning them into a healthier version of casserole,Ž mixing them with other wholesome and ”avorful ingredients. Always use fresh green beans, or at least uncooked frozen ones. Precooked green beans, as is the case with all vegetables, are dead on arrival and offer only a fraction of their original nutritional content. That includes vegetables which come in cof“ns (canned), nuke-in-your-microwaveovenŽ dinners, and other convenienceŽ food. The following recipes „ multiplied as needed „ are great for your week night meals as well as for the holidays. They declare: Keep the doctor away „ deliciously!Ž Judy E.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018PROVIDED BY MCCCaring for a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer can be all-consuming. Many cancer caregivers pay both emotional and physical tolls that can make the task of tending to family members or friends that much more dif“cult. The American Cancer Society notes that most cancer patients now receive treatment at outpatient treatment centers, meaning someone needs to provide patients with day-to-day care at home. The roles these caregivers play often change during and after treatment, and some cancer caregivers feel as though providing such care is a full-time job. Caregivers can try several strategies to make the task of caring for loved ones with cancer less taxing. € Study up on your loved ones type of cancer. Knowledge is power, and learning about a loved ones particular type of cancer can be invaluable. Doctors and patient advocacy groups can be great sources of information that can help cancer caregivers recognize or anticipate potential side effects of treatment, putting them in better positions to address those side effects if or when they appear. Attend doctors appointments with a loved one to get a full grasp of how treatment is going and what to expect in the near and distant future. This proactive approach can reduce the stress many caregivers feel while caring for their loved ones, and it can improve patients quality of life as well. € Care for yourself. The ACS notes that depression is common among cancer caregivers, who may also develop feelings of fear, hopelessness, guilt, confusion, doubt, and anger while caring for their loved ones. As a result, its important for caregivers to continue taking care of themselves as well as their sick loved ones. Exercise, a healthy diet and making time to socialize with friends can help caregivers prevent depression from developing while also allowing them to maintain a sense of normalcy. € Accept and/or seek help. The work involved in caring for a loved one who has cancer varies depending on the individual and the stage of their cancer at the time of diagnosis. But regardless of the circumstances, caregivers should not pressure themselves to go it alone. Caring for cancer patients who dont require much attention or assistance can still be exhausting, so accept help when its offered and seek it if the job is proving overwhelming. Many cancer caregivers continue to work full-time while tending to their loved ones, and there is no shame in accepting a helping hand. Ask a physician about local volunteer organizations that may provide meals or other services to cancer patients, and dont hesitate to take advantage of caregiver support groups, either. € Recognize caregiving is often a thankless job. While cancer patients appreciate the roles their caregivers play in their lives, some may be too weak or tired to express that gratitude or grasp just how hard their caregivers are working. Caregivers who recognize the limitations cancer places on those it af”icts may be less likely to feel unappreciated by their loved ones, and that recognition can ultimately help to reduce the stress associated with caring for sick relatives or friends. Cancer caregivers have dif“cult jobs. But there are ways to reduce the stress and feelings of heartache that sometimes af”ict caregivers.Cancer caregiving strategies PHOTO PROVIDEDKnowledge is power, and learning about a loved ones particular type of cancer can be invaluable.PROVIDED BY MCCMastectomy is a treatment for women diagnosed with breast cancer or those who are genetically predisposed to cancer. The removal of one or both breasts, mastectomy surgery may involve removing just the breast tissue or, in some cases, the lymph nodes as well. Data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality says their analysis points to a 36 percent increase of both single and double mastectomies between the period of 2005 and 2013, the most recent year for data. Women on the precipice of mastectomy surgery will naturally have many questions concerning the procedure and projected recovery. The process of recovering is different for everyone, and not all mastectomies are the same. The following is a general idea of what patients can expect before and after mastectomy surgery.Before surgeryA mastectomy is performed under general anesthesia, advises the nonpro“t group Susan G. Komen. Therefore, patients should expect to undergo routine physical exams and may require a surgical pre-clearance from a doctor and the surgical hospital or center. Blood tests and an EKG may be ordered as well. Prior to surgery, patients can begin making plans for childcare, meal preparation, shopping, work requirements, and more. As mastectomy is an invasive procedure, patients may experience pain and fatigue after surgery. Having various plans in play well before the surgery date can relieve some stress and help patients focus on their recoveries. Purchase comfortable clothing that will be loose around the arms and chest. Zip-up tops or those with front buttons afford easy access. Some women also opt to get “tted for post-op garments, including a lymphedema sleeve. Lymphedema is swelling of the area, and it is a common side effect. It is helpful to be prepared before such items are needed.After surgeryMastectomy surgeries typically last between two and three hours. Some may last longer if reconstruction is performed at the same time. Patients will be admitted to a hospital stay for a day or two and moved to a recovery room, and will need to be driven home upon discharge. Expect to be bandaged and possibly have a surgical drain at the wound site. The nonpro“t resource says the drain usually remains in place one to two weeks after surgery. Fluid will have to be emptied from the detachable drain bulb a few times per day. Sutures that are dissolvable will not require removal. Patients should follow the recovery plans outlined by their doctors. Rest is most important during this time, so do not overdo exercise or other activities, although some movements to relieve shoulder stiffness may be advised. Pain, numbness, itching, and myriad other symptoms may occur. Take pain medications only as needed and directed. Weakness is expected in the arms and shoulders. Ask for help lifting, moving or picking up items. Emotional side effects can be just as profound as physical ones. Fear of the cancer, body image issues and a sense of loss can occur. Having a strong support team can help, as can speaking with a professional counselor. It can take several weeks to start feeling like oneself again after mastectomy surgery. Women should not hold themselves up to anyone elses standards and be patient and hopeful because this challenging time is temporary. Learn more at to expect before and after mastectomy surgery By STACEY BURLINGTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRERUntil this year, migraine sufferers had to make do with drugs originally developed for other medical conditions, such as high blood pressure or depression. Now, there are three new drugs that were developed just for preventing the horrible headaches. Erenumab (Aimovig) was approved by the FDA in May. Fremanezumab (Ajovy) was approved in September and is now available. Galcanezumab (Emgality) was approved late in September and recently began arriving in doctors of“ces. They have a lot of promise and are potentially very important,Ž said Katherine Hamilton, a headache specialist at Penn Medicine. The drugs, which are injected under the skin, offer hope for patients who have not responded to other treatments, but Hamilton said that what is potentially even more clinically relevant is they have a lower side-effect pro“leŽ than other medications commonly used for migraine. She added, though, that it remains to be seen how patients who take them for long periods will fare. As new drugs, their long-term impact is not yet known. Stephen Silberstein, director of the Jefferson Headache Center, said about 800 of his migraine patients are on a list to start taking the drugs. He was involved in testing erenumab and helped design and run the trial for fremanezumab, so many of his patients were involved in the clinical trials and have already tried the medicines. Silberstein said insurance is expected to offset erenumabs price tag, about $600 a month, but patients will be eligible only if they have tried other drugs “rst and found they didnt help. He and Hamilton said some other migraine drugs have similar costs. Louis Colburn, 71, a retired police of“cer and security manager who gets migraines most days of the week, was among the “rst of Silbersteins patients to try fremanezumab. His headaches, he said, are just like somebodys got a drill inside your brain.Ž He watched calmly last week as nurse practitioner Rachel Seligman emptied three syringes under the skin of his left thigh. The shots should last three months. Silberstein said Colburn should see results in a week. He expects that patients with frequent headaches wont mind getting three shots at once. If you realized how bad a migraine headache is, the shots dont matter,Ž he said. Migraines affect 40 million people in the United States. These drugs were tested in people with chronic migraines, de“ned as 15 or more headaches a month. One to 2 percent of the population falls into that category. The new drugs are monoclonal antibodies aimed at CGRP (calcium-gene-related peptide), a string of amino acids that play a role in how people experience pain, and must be injected. All can be taken monthly, but fremanezumab has the advantage of also having the option of quarterly shots. The drugs have different mechanisms, but they prevent CGRP from working normally. Another drug that targets CGRP and will be given intravenously is in development, Silberstein said. Competition may bring costs down, he said. CGRP is elevated during migraine headaches. It also is involved in the movement of food through the gut and is present in the heart and blood vessels. Researchers were concerned that the drugs might cause systemic problems, but Silberstein said mild constipation was the most serious side effect of the drugs in the trials. He said the drugs appeared to be equally effective. About half the patients had a 50 percent or greater reduction in the number of headaches they experienced. Almost three-quarters had at least a 30 percent reduction. The overall averages look less exciting, however. Chronic migraine patients had about two fewer headache days a month than those who took placebos. The placebo group had a small reduction in headaches, too. In the treatment groups, the intensity of the headaches also went down.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 NEWS & NOTESLife Care Center of Punta Gorda earns perfect score on state surveyLife Care Center of Punta Gorda, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, recently achieved a de“ciency-free state survey. To pass the state survey each year, nursing facilities must meet hundreds of criteria. These address not only nursing care and resident safety, but also patients rights, food services and administration. Surveyors spend several days in the building reviewing paperwork, observing resident care and interviewing residents and associates. These results are a direct correlation between the immense leadership exhibited by the department heads and the passion and dedication from front-line staff,Ž said Julia Swanson, executive director. Our team members truly care about the patients and residents and take pride in delivering quality care. Our associates work hard each day to make a positive impact on the lives of the residents, whether that means cooking a special meal for a resident who hasnt been eating well or encouraging a resident to walk again after an unexpected fall, and they deserve to be recognized for their commitment.Ž Life Care Center of Punta Gordas survey took place Sept. 17-20.

By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER and ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP STAFF WRITERSWASHINGTON „ Across the country, Americas retailers and shipping companies are looking happily forward to a robust holiday shopping season. Theres just one concern: Who will stock the shelves, pack the orders and ring up customers? The U.S. job market is the tightest its been in five decades, consumer confidence is near an 18-year high and online shopping is surging. Companies that depend on holiday season sales need more workers at a time when the ranks of the unemployed have dwindled to their lowest level since the recession. Envisioning an even tougher struggle than theyve had in recent years, many companies are taking steps theyve not tried before. More of them are offering higher pay. Theyre holding national hiring days. Theyre dangling bonuses. Theyre providing more full-time, rather than part-time, work. Some warehousing companies that fear they still wont be able to fill enough jobs, are turning to automation. I cant remember the last time it was this tight,Ž said Tony Lee, a vice president at the Society for Human Resource Management. You are going to see a real battle for seasonal employees.Ž At 3.7 percent, the unemployment rate is at a 49-year low, and the government says a record 6.9 million job openings are being advertised „ more than the number of unemployed Americans. With more job seekers able to choose among employers, many companies have rushed to begin their seasonal hiring earlier than before. Kohls, the nationwide discount chain, with 1,100 stores, tried to get a jump on its rivals by advertising seasonal jobs back in late June. We are hiring seasonal associates earlier than ever,Ž said Ryan Festerling, Kohls head of human resources. UPS is holding its first-ever nationwide job fair next week. In 170 locations, applicants can have interviews on the spot, and driver candidates can schedule a road test. The Atlanta company had been caught off-guard last year when early holiday shipments swamped its network. On its job-fair day „ which its dubbing Brown FridayŽ„ UPS hopes to hire up to 40,000 of the more than 100,000 seasonal workers it will need. Sakeria Crawford, who will start a start a seasonal packagehandling job with UPS next month, will earn about $13 an hour „ the most shes ever made. Crawford, 24, who lives in Atlanta, hopes to stay on in a full-time permanent job after the holidays. About one-third of UPS fulltime employees began as part-timers. Crawford is using the time before the job starts to line up daycare for her son, nearly 4, for whom she hopes the job will also mean a brighter Christmas. Im very, very happy that I even have the opportunity,Ž Crawford said. I need something stable.Ž Target wants to hire 120,000 seasonal workers, 20 percent more than last year. The company has raised Scramble for holiday season workers already near fever pitch AP PHOTO In this May 9 photo, a UPS employee loads packages onto a truck at a company facility in New York. The job market is the tighte st it has been in nearly “ve decades and online shopping is still growing at a double-digit rate. Businesses now need more workers at a time when fewer are available.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018JOBSits starting wage by a dollar to $12 an hour, and is offering a new perk: It will randomly select one hourly worker at each store and distribution center to receive a $500 gift card and $500 donation to a local community organization of their choice. Angie Thompson, a Target spokeswoman, said the higher wage and other inducements appear to be paying off. Applications jumped 20 percent in the first week after they were announced compared with the same period last year. In 2017, Target raised its minimum hourly pay by $2, to $11, which it says helped produce 60 percent more applicants. The company is further raising its minimum wage, in stages, to $15 by 2020. Yet Amazon beat it to the punch just last week by announcing that it would boost its starting hourly wage to $15 on Nov. 1. Its an investment in the future growth of the company and to ensure that we can continue to hire, retain, and develop the best talent for years to come,Ž said Dave Clark, Amazons senior vice president of worldwide operations. Amazon, the nations second-largest private employer after Walmart, says it wants to hire applicants quickly. Its online job ads stress not what is required but what isnt: No resume. No interview.Ž Applicants who have an informal face-toface meeting at a hiring event and who match Amazons requirements can be offered a job on the spot. With lesser resources, smaller retailers are struggling to keep up with the higher pay and greater perks. It definitely doesnt help if a retailer has to compete with an Amazon location. Steve Fusek, who owns Fuseks True Value Hardware in Indianapolis, says he had already found it a challenge to find workers who could reliably show up on time. Making matters worse, his store is just 10 miles from an Amazon warehouse. Now, even though Amazons jobs are more stressful and demanding, he expects to have to raise his starting hourly pay by a dollar or two from $10 to compete with Amazon. Whether they want to work there (Amazon) or not, that is the new norm,Ž Fusek said. Its an unusual shift. In the retail industry, the huge store chains used to be known for paying less, not more, than smaller competitors. Its even tougher for them to compete when the big chains „ which traditionally had paid the lowest minimum wage „ are now paying more,Ž Lee said. Youre going to see everyone forced to raise wages.Ž Radial, an e-commerce company based in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, says its most competitive markets are places where Amazon and UPS also have operations, as in Lexington, Kentucky, or Reno, Nevada, where Amazon has a warehouse. Radial, which fills online orders for such retailers as Shoe Carnival, PetSmart and Kate Spade, has had to offer more perks than before. It wants to recruit more than 20,000 workers for its 22 distribution centers and five customer call centers. Sean McCartney, an executive vice president, said Radial raised hourly pay for its holiday workers in four more markets than it did last year, though he wouldnt say which ones. The company began advertising for some holiday jobs in June, a month earlier than in 2017. Radial is also offering bonuses of $1,000 or more in the most competitive markets to those who work during the crucial Black FridayŽ weekend after Thanksgiving. That bonus is helping keep Linda Connor-Lewis happy about her job packing online orders at Radials warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky, even though her email inbox is stuffed with invitations to job fairs at rival companies. Though Connor-Lewis, 54, already has a permanent job with Radial, she expects to share in the holiday bonanza: She plans to work 30 more hours of work a week on top of her current 40-hour schedule and expects to earn more in holiday bonuses than she did last year. Even so, Radial is using more automation to help keep up and has installed robotics in the order-picking section at its Louisville facility. McCartney estimates that the automation will reduce physical labor by 15 percent to 20 percent in that area. At XPO Logistics, a firm that specializes in shipping appliances, furniture, and other large items that Americans are increasingly willing to order online, plans are to hire 8,000 workers „ one-third more than last year. XPO is also installing 5,000 robots in its warehouses in the United States and Europe. The combination of man plus machine is the best way to give our customers an edge,Ž said Bradley Jacobs, the companys CEO. Jacobs said the robots, which lift entire shelves and bring them to workers, should enable the companys warehouse workers to raise their productivity. They will be able to pack 200 items an hour, up from 80 beforehand. Retailers are posting far more full-time jobs compared with last year, and fewer part-time positions, according to research by Indeed, a job-listing website. The proportion of retail jobs that are part time, like sales associates at clothing stores, plummeted this year compared with 2017. Walmart plans to manage the holiday rush by providing more hours to its part-time workers, a step it implemented just two years ago. Some stores may hire additional seasonal employees, it said. There has been a shift because the job market is so strong,Ž said Andrew Flowers, an economist at Indeed. To find workers, you pretty much have to offer them a full-time job.ŽHOLIDAYFROM PAGE 1 Make Your House a HOME!

The writer and Saudi dissident has not been seen since Oct. 2, when entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to deal with paperwork required to marry his Turkish “ ancee. World leaders have demanded an explanation from Riyadh after U.S. and Turkish media reports that authorities believe Khashoggi, a legal U.S. resident, was killed in the consulate. Saudi Arabia denies accusations it was behind his disappearance and has claimed that Khashoggi left the building before he went missing. We are going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishmentŽ if Saudi Arabia killed him, Trump told CBS News in an interview released Saturday. Asked if Khashoggi was killed on the order of the Saudi government, Trump replied: Its being investigated, its being looked at very, very strongly, and we would be very upset and angry if that were the case.Ž As of this moment, they deny it, and they deny it vehemently. Could it be them? Yes,Ž he said. But Trump said he was reluctant to cancel a $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis, even if Riyadh is found responsible. I dont want to hurt jobs. I dont want to lose an order like that.

Brunson returned to the U.S. aboard a military jet shortly before meeting the president. He was imprisoned for nearly two years after being detained in October 2016, formally arrested that December and placed under house arrest on July 25 for health reasons. From a Turkish prison to the White House in 24 hours, thats not bad,Ž Trump said. Brunsons homecoming amounts to a diplomatic „ and possibly political „ win for Trump and his evangelical base. Coming on the heels of the con“ rmation of a conservative justice to the Supreme Court, Brunsons return is likely to leave evangelical Christians feeling good about the president and motivated get to the polls in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. Brunson appeared to be in good health and good spirits. When he asked Trump if he could pray for him, the president replied, Well, I need it probably more than anyone ese in this room, so that would be very nice, thank you.Ž Brunson left his chair beside Trump, kneeled and placed a hand on the presidents shoulder.

The deadly virus appearance for the “ rst time in the far northeast has sparked fear. Suspected contacts of infected people have tried to slip away. Residents have assaulted health teams. The rate of new Ebola cases has more than doubled since the start of this month, experts say. Safe burials are particularly sensitive as some outraged family members reject the intervention of health workers in the deeply personal moment, even as they put their own lives at risk. On Wednesday, a wary peace was negotiated over the body of an Ebola victim, one of 95 deaths among 172 con“ rmed cases so far, Congos health ministry said. Her family demanded that an acquaintance drive the hearse, while they agreed to wear protective gear to carry the casket. A police vehicle would follow. On the way to the cemetery, however, the hearse peeled away at full speed,Ž the ministry said. A violent confrontation followed with local youth once the hearse was found at the familys own burial plot elsewhere. The procession eventually reached the cemetery by days end. The next day, with a better understanding of what was at stake, several family members appeared voluntarily at a hospital for Ebola vaccinations, the ministry said. They swore no one had Battles over safe Ebola burials complicate work in Congo AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 9 “ le photo, a health worker sprays disinfectant on his colleague after working at an Ebola treatment center in Beni, Eastern Congo.

His wife handed him a drill and Garcia used screws to pin his front and back door shut. But soon the storm surge from Hurricane Michael was up to his chest. His dogs sat on his bed as it ” oated. He said it took all of his strength to hold his sliding door shut as the waters outside the glass rose higher than those ” ooding the house. It was life or death,Ž Garcia said through tears Friday as he walked amid the destruction in Mexico Beach.

They barely escaped as homes were smashed from their foundations, neighborhoods got submerged, and broken boards, sheet metal and other debris ” ew through the air.

News outlets report 60-yearold John Stapleton was arrested Thursday on charges including lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim under 12. Okaloosa County Sheriffs Of“ce deputies say the attack happened at a Crestview middle school that was turned into temporary housing for shelter from Hurricane Michael.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Rachel Fidanian of Lakeland was charged this week with second-degree murder for the June 25 death of her 40-yearold husband, Bryant Fidanian. The 38-year-old suspect told Polk County sheriffs investigators she was cutting pizza with a knife when the couples dog came into the house covered in feces. She said she ran toward the dog, tripped on a rug and fell into her husband, stabbing him in the chest. While she described their relationship as wonderful,Ž detectives say neighbors reported frequent arguments and deputies had been called seven times to the home.

HEADLINES AROUND THE STATE HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDJAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) „ Torrential rains triggered ”ash ”oods and landslides on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, killing at least 27 people, including a dozen children at a school, of“cials said Saturday. A ”ash ”ood with mud and debris from landslides struck Mandailing Natal district in North Sumatra province and smashed an Islamic school in Muara Saladi village, where 29 children were swept away on Friday afternoon, said local police chief Irsan Sinuhaji. He said rescuers retrieved the bodies of 11 children from mud and rubble hours later. The National Disaster Mitigation Agencys spokesman, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, said rescuers and villagers managed to rescue 17 other children and several teachers on Friday and pulled out the body of a child on Saturday near Aek Saladi river, close to the school. A video obtained by The Associated Press showed relatives crying besides their loved ones at a health clinic where the bodies of the children were lying, covered with blankets. Nugroho said two bodies were found early Saturday from a car washed away by ”oods in Mandailing Natal, where 17 houses collapsed and 12 were swept away. Hundreds of other homes were ”ooded up to 7 feet high, while landslides occurred in eight areas of the region. Four villagers were killed after landslides hit 29 houses and ”ooded about 100 buildings in neighboring Sibolga district, Nugroho said. He said ”ash ”oods also smashed several villages in West Sumatra provinces Tanah Datar district, killing “ve people, including two children, and leaving another missing. Landslides and ”ooding in the neighboring districts of Padang Pariaman and West Pasaman killed four villagers after 500 houses ”ooded and three bridges collapsed. Both North and West Sumatra provinces declared a weeklong emergency relief period as hundreds of terri“ed survivors ”ed their hillside homes to safer ground, fearing more of the mountainside would collapse under continuing rain, Nugroho said. Seasonal downpours cause frequent landslides and ”oods each year in Indonesia, a chain of 17,000 islands where millions of people live in mountainous areas or near fertile ”ood plains.27 dead in floods, landslides on Indonesias Sumatra island AP PHOTORescuers search for victims following a ”ash ”ood in Mandailing Natal district, North Sumatra, Indonesia, Saturday. KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) „ Seven people, including South Korean climbers, were killed and two more are missing on Gurja Himal mountain after a strong storm swept through their base camp, Nepalese police said Saturday. A storm Friday night destroyed their camp and two rescue helicopters sent early Saturday were unable to land because of bad weather conditions on the mountain, said police of“cial Bir Bahadur Budamagar. Villagers who reached base camp Saturday afternoon found the bodies of four South Korean climbers, two Nepalese guides and another person yet to be identi“ed, while the search was continuing for two more, Budamagar said. There were “ve South Korean climbers and four Nepalese guides in the camp when the strong storm hit. It was unlikely the weather would clear on Saturday and helicopter ”ights were likely to be possible only on Sunday. A police team was heading toward the base camp on foot and will likely reach there on Sunday, Budamagar said. The climbers were attempting to scale the 23,590-foot peak during the autumn climbing season.7 killed, 2 missing after storm sweeps Nepal mountain SIMRIK AIR VIA APIn this grab taken from video provided by SIMRIK AIR, a helicopter lands close to a storm site after searching for missing mountaineers on the Gurja Himal mountain, in Nepal, Saturday. BEIRUT (AP) „ The Islamic State group stormed a settlement for displaced people in eastern Syria and abducted scores of civilians in the latest attack by the extremists on civilians, a U.S.-backed Syrian force and a war monitor said on Saturday. The area in Syrias eastern Deir el-Zour province has been witnessing days of intense clashes between IS and the U.S.backed Syrian Democratic Forces amid bad weather and low visibility. The SDF said in a statement that the “ghting on Friday in the Hajin camp for the displaced left 20 IS gunmen and severalŽ SDF “ghters dead. It added that IS gunmen seized civilians by force and took them to areas in the last pocket of territory they control in the region. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors Syrias war, said as many as 130 families were abducted by the extremists. The Observatory warned that IS might kill them. The Observatory said the families are mostly made up of foreign women, including widows of IS members who had been killed earlier in the Syrian war. Since IS lost most of its self-declared caliphate in Syria and Iraq over the past two years, the extremists have been resorting to attacks on civilians to show that they are still effective. The area of Fridays attack is on the edge of the last pocket held by IS in Syria. Intense “ghting has been ongoing on the area since Wednesday, amid a sand storm. Not counting the dead in the camp for the displaced, the Observatory said the “ghting in the area in the past three days killed 37 SDF “ghters and 58 IS gunmen. The SDF launched an offensive to regain control of the IS-held pockets of territory last month.Islamic State kidnaps 130 families in eastern Syria, monitor reportsAfrican youth opposition movement aims to drive changeNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) „ Popular young opposition leaders from East Africa are uniting with like-minded colleagues in West and Southern Africa to form a movement to challenge the misrule that has plagued the continent. Kenyan legislator Babu Owino said in a talk late Friday with Ugandan pop star-turned-opposition “gure Bobi Wine (whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu) and Kenyan activistturned-politician Boniface Mwangi that they are reaching out to South Africas Julius Malema and Zimbabwes Nelson Chamisa, among others. Theres a deliberate effort in Africa by senior politicians to distance youth from politics and governance, yet 70 percent of the continents population is below the age of 35, said Ssentamu. Ssentamu, a lawmaker since last year, says hes “ghting for freedom from oppression and wants 74-year-old Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, in power since 1986, to retire. Ssentamu is facing treason charges in Uganda after being arrested and tortured for allegedly organizing the stoning of the presidential motorcade. The government denies allegations that Ssentamu was tortured. Ssentamu said he was happy to speak freely in Kenya because in Uganda police would violently disperse any of his public meetings. He said never wanted to become a politician but he felt he had been complaining for too long. Mwangi said despite Africas people mostly being young, the majority of the continents leadership was elderly. Who are they speaking for? They are stealing, looting and borrowing heavily,Ž said Mwangi. He urged young people to actively engage in politics, run for of“ce and make changes from within rather than simply complaining from the outside.Saudi-led airstrike kills 17 in contested Yemeni port citySANAA, Yemen (AP) „ An airstrike by the Saudiled coalition targeting Yemens Shiite rebels known as Houthis killed at least 17 people in the port-city of Hodeida on Saturday, Yemeni rebel of“cials said. The strike, which hit in the Jebel Ras area, also wounded 20 people, a spokesman for the rebel-run Health Ministry, Youssef al-Hadari, said. Hodeida, with its key port installations that bring in U.N. and other humanitarian aid, has become the center of Yemens con”ict, with ground troops allied to the coalition struggling to drive out the rebels who control it. Tribal leaders said the strike hit traf“c, including a bus that was completely destroyed, killing all inside, adding that women and children were among the dead. The tribal leaders spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for their safety. The death toll is expected to rise as many of the wounded were in critical condition. The Saudi-led coalition has been locked in a stalemated war with the rebels since 2015. An estimated 10,000 people have been killed in Yemens con”ict, which has produced what the United Nations says is the worlds worst humanitarian crisis.Retired priest who admitted to molesting children dies at 97HAGATNA, Guam (AP) „ A retired priest accused in more than 130 sexual abuse lawsuits and who admitted to molesting children on Guam has died. The Paci“c Daily News reports the Archdiocese of Agana says Louis Brouillard, who was ordained on Guam in 1948, died Wednesday in his native Minnesota. He was 97. The archdiocese, in a statement released Friday, said Brouillards health had been declining in recent months. Brouillard served on Guam until 1981 as a parish priest in Mangilao, Chalan Pago, Barrigada, Malojloj and Tumon, and as a teacher at Father Duenas Memorial School. Brouillard, in a 2016 interview with a Paci“c Daily News reporter, stated its possibleŽ he sexually abused boys while serving on Guam. He later signed an af“davit admitting to abusing 20 or more boys on the island.WORLD/STATE NEWS

We are both gainfully employed in sales, and together we earn nearly $175,000 annually. After doing poorly in the stock market during the past two years, we decided to change stockbrokers and “nd a professional whom we could work with to build a solid portfolio with stocks that have good growth potential. At this point, dividend income is not important to us. Our new broker has recommended that we invest $100,000 in 10 different sectors „ telecommunications, utilities, tech, retail, pharmaceuticals, “nance, biotechnology, oil and gas, defense, and foreign stocks. He wants us to invest $10,000 in each sector, and the “rst stock he has recommended is U.S. Cellular. My partner doesnt care for this stock, and he wants to settle this disagreement before we proceed with the other sectors. Please give us your opinion of this stock. „ JF, Detroit Dear JF: U.S. Cellular was founded in 1983, and its cellular business is promoted by 256 retail stores and kiosks around the country. In my opinion, this cellular company is a great big huge blah. And I cant imagine one single reason in the entire universe this broker would recommend an investment of $10,000 in U.S. Cellular (USM-$44). USM has to be among the most mundane, tiresome, dull, boring, humdrum public companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange. And because a company usually imitates the personalities in its top management, USM must have pitifully tiresome, terribly mundane, appallingly dull, incredibly boring and dreadfully humdrum management. USMs chief accounting of“cer doesnt own a single share of USM. USMs senior vice president in charge of sales doesnt own USM stock, either. Neither do the executive vice president of operations, the chief technology of“cer, the EVP of “nance and numerous other of“cers and directors of this 6,000-employee company. The reason so many of“cers and directors dont own USM stock is simple: None of them feels the stock is worth a beggars dime. During the past 10 years, the market price of USM (even with buybacks beginning in 2009) shares has been on a gentle decline, with a steady rate of lower high prices and a steady rate of lower low prices. I wouldnt recommend this stock to a mudsill in a cock“ght. Revenues of this cellular company, which serves 5.1 million U.S. customers, have been up and down on its income statements like a $1 Duncan yo-yo since 2008. That year, USMs revenues were $4.2 billion, but even as revenues have grown for nearly all cellular companies for the past decade, USM will be fortunate to record revenues of $3.9 billion this year. Even T-Mobile and Vodafone continue to grow revenues. By some kind of corporate black magic, USMs management was able to make about $300 million (7.5 percent) of revenues disappear into the ether. And while other telecoms managed to produce respectable net pro“t margins of 4 to 5 percent, USMs net pro“t margins have been all over the map „ from less than 1 percent in 2008 to 5.1 percent to 3.2 percent to 2.5 percent to 6 percent (wow) to 1.2 percent to 0.3 percent to 1.9 percent. And over the past 10 years, USMs earnings have been just a screw-up and a screwdown. Last year, USMs management embarrassingly posted earnings of 14 cents a share, and this year, earnings may, on a wing and a prayer, come to 80 cents a share, with net pro“t margins fortuitously expected to come in at 1.7 percent. And dividends? Well, Im told that USM has, since the Civil War, never paid a dividend. Frankly, theres no reason for this to be a public corporation. In the past 10 years, this company has been sitting at its NYSE post like a blob, trading about 100,000 times a day. Its inutile, dozy management should petition the NYSE to delist USM and make room for another company that could better represent the Big Board. Dont dare buy USM. If this is one of your new brokers recommendations, youd better send me his other recommendations, too.

By RYAN BEENEBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON …… Jared Kushner, President Donald Trumps sonin-law, paid almost no federal income taxes in several recent years despite a ballooning net worth and billions of dollars spent building his real estate empire, the New York Times reported Saturday. Citing con“dential “nancial records, the Times reported that Kushner, a senior White House adviser, for years minimized his tax bills by booking heavy losses on reported depreciation of his real estate holdings that overwhelmed his reported income. The Times noted that nothing in the documents indicate that Kushner or his company broke the law. In a 2015 example, Kushner booked $8.3 million in losses driven by signi“cant depreciationŽ of real estate owned by Kushner and his company. The loss offset Kushners income of $1.7 million in salary and investment gains, the Times reported. More than a dozen tax accountants and lawyers reviewed the records for the Times. One told the newspaper that the records indicated that Kushner paid little or no federal income taxes in “ve of the past eight years. The documents reviewed by the newspaper describe Kushners business dealings and “nances from 2009 to 2016. They were drafted with Kushners participation as part of a review of his “nances by a prospective lender and contain information from his federal tax “lings in addition to other data provided by advisers, according to the Times. The records were given to the newspaper by a person who has had “nancial dealings with Kushner and his family,Ž it said. A spokesman for Kushners attorney told the Times that Kushner followed the advice of attorneys and accountants, and “led and paid all taxes required by law. The spokesman also said he wouldnt respond to assumptions taken from documents that offer an incomplete view of Kushners “nances, the paper said.Jared Kushner used paper losses to minimize his taxes, report says KUSHNERTrump signs Save our Seas Act into lawKETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) „ President Donald Trump recently signed into law a bill that lawmakers have called a point of unity among Republicans and Democrats. The Ketchikan Daily News reports the Save our Seas Act, which Trump signed Thursday, reauthorizes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Marine Debris Program through 2022. The program works to reduce debris through research, prevention and reduction. The Save our Seas legislation keeps the program going by continuing to authorize $10 million per year for the next “ve years.

Clearances for “ve other people Clinton designated as researchers have also been withdrawn, including for aide Cheryl Mills. The State Department disclosed Clintons request in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The committee chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley, authorized the letters disclosure following consultation with the department. The letter blacks out the names of four other Clinton researchers whose security clearances were withdrawn last month. The committee says the update on Clintons security clearance is part of an ongoing State Department review related to her use of a nongovernment email server.By JENNIFER A. DLOUHYBLOOMBERG NEWS (TNS)WASHINGTON …… Donald Trumps presidency has inspired huge protests, with hundreds of thousands of women marching on the National Mall and scientists swarming the White House fence. But now the Trump administration is seeking to restrict protests by effectively blocking them along the north sidewalk of the White House and making it easier for police to shut them down. A National Park Service proposal also would open the door to charging organizers for the cost of putting up barricades or reseeding grass. The proposed regulation could curtail demonstrations on some of Washingtons most popular staging grounds for protests, including the National Mall where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his I have a dreamŽ speech in 1963. It also includes Lafayette Square across from the White House and the Pennsylvania Avenue sidewalks in front of the Trump International Hotel. The proposal dovetails with Republicans increasingly heated campaign rhetoric over mob ruleŽ and the boisterous protests against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Trump has also been antagonistic toward protesters, once waxing nostalgic about how it used to be socially acceptable to assault them. When you think about petitioning your government for redress of grievances, this is the nations capital …… this is where you come to do it,Ž said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which opposes the proposal. And now you have the Trump administration that is not only engaging in extreme rhetoric against demonstrators and suggesting that protests should be illegal,Ž but taking concrete actions to suppress dissent and suppress free speech.Ž The proposal, issued in August and open for comment through Monday, says demonstrations can impose substantial costs on the federal government. Some of the changes are designed to preserve an atmosphere of contemplationŽ around the memorials, the Park Service said. Other revisions, according to the proposal, would help protect National Mall grass from being trampled and give the Park Service more time to negotiate logistics before permits would be issued for demonstrations. Fee requirements could make mass protests too expensive to happen,Ž said Arthur Spitzer, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union in the District of Columbia. Managing public lands for the bene“t of the American peopleŽ …… whether demonstrators or tourists …… is what Congress funds the National Park Service to do,Ž Spitzer said in a blog post. While the Park Service may be strapped for funds, it cannot balance its budget on the backs of people seeking to exercise their constitutional rights.Ž Current National Park Service rules for rallies and marches have been forged through decades of court cases, including lawsuits that successfully challenged government restrictions. The proposal would rewrite many of those rules „ and, if enacted, face certain litigation. The plan would transform the way the agency vets demonstrations and where they can be conducted. For example, it could blur the lines between the Park Services treatment of demonstrations, which typically get more deference, and special events,Ž such as festivals and the “lming of movies.Trump proposal could squelch Washington protests HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONNATIONAL NEWS

Amen.Ž Brunson, originally from Black Mountain, North Carolina, had lived in Turkey with his family for more than two decades and led a small congregation in the Izmir Resurrection Church. He was accused of committing crimes on behalf of Kurdish militants who have been “ghting the Turkish state for decades and to aid a Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, accused by Turkey of engineering the failed coup. He faced up to 35 years in jail if convicted of all the charges against him. Administration of“cials cast Brunsons release as vindication of Trumps hard-nosed negotiating stance, saying Turkey tried to set terms for Brunsons release but that Trump was insistent on Brunsons release without conditions. Trump maintained there was no deal for Brunsons freedom, but the president dangled the prospect of better relations between the U.S. and its NATO ally. We do not pay ransom in this country,Ž Trump said. Where previous administrations kept negotiations over U.S. prisoners held abroad close to the vest, Trump has elevated them to causes clbres, striking a tough line with allies and foes alike. Trump thanked Turkeys president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who had resisted the demands of Trump and other high-level U.S. of“cials for Brunsons release. Erdogan had insisted that his countrys courts are independent, though he previously had suggested a possible swap for Brunson. The U.S. had repeatedly called for Brunsons release and, this year, sanctioned two Turkish of“cials and doubled tariffs on steel and aluminum imports citing in part Brunsons plight. Trump said the U.S. greatly appreciated Brunsons release and said the move will lead to good, perhaps great, relationsŽ between the U.S. and fellow NATO ally Turkey, and said the White House would take a lookŽ at the sanctions. Trump asked Brunson and his family which candidate they voted for in 2016, saying he was con“dent they had gone for him. I would like to say I sent in an absentee ballot from prison,Ž Brunson quipped. Evangelical voters overwhelmingly voted for the president despite discomfort with his personal shortcomings, in large part because he pledged to champion their causes, from to defending persecuted Christians overseas to appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court. In the space of seven days, less than a month from the midterm elections, Trump delivered on both fronts. Prominent evangelical leaders such as Tony Perkins have championed Brunsons case, as has Vice President Mike Pence. First word of Brunsons arrival back on American soil Saturday came from Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. Perkins tweeted just after noon that he had landed at a military base outside Washington with Brunson and his wife, Norine. Erdogan said on he hoped the two countries will continue to cooperate as it be“ts two allies.Ž Erdogan also called for joint efforts against terrorism, and he listed the Islamic State group, Kurdish militants and the network of a U.S.-based Muslim cleric whom Turkey blames for a failed coup in 2016. Relations between the countries have become severely strained over Brunsons detention and a host of other issues. A Turkish court on Friday convicted Brunson of having links to terrorism and sentenced him to just over three years in prison, but released the 50-year-old evangelical pastor because he had already spent nearly two years in detention. An earlier charge of espionage was dropped. Hours later, Brunson was ”own out of Turkey, his home for more than two decades. He was taken to a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, for a medical checkup. I love Jesus. I love Turkey,Ž an emotional Brunson, who had maintained his innocence, told the court at Fridays hearing. Brunsons release could bene“t Turkey by allowing the government to focus on an escalating diplomatic crisis over Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi contributor to The Washington Post who has been missing for more than a week and is feared dead after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkish of“cials suspect Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, was killed in the consulate; Saudi of“cials deny it. Trump maintained the two cases were not linked, saying Brunsons release amid the Khashoggi investigation was strict coincidence.Ž Turkey may also hope the U.S. will now lift the tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum imports, a move that would inject con“dence into an economy rattled by high in”ation and foreign currency debt. But Brunsons release doesnt resolve disagreements over U.S. support for Kurdish “ghters in Syria, as well as a plan by Turkey to buy Russian surface-to-air missiles. Turkey is also frustrated by the refusal of the U.S. to extradite Gulen.FREEDFROM PAGE 1manipulated the corpse,Ž it added. Ebola spreads via bodily ”uids of those infected, including the dead. The Beni community where the confrontation occurred is at the center of Ebola containment efforts. To the alarm of the World Health Organization and others, it is also where community resistance has been the most persistent „ and where many of the new cases are found. Chronic mistrust after years of rebel attacks is part of the toxic mixŽ in Beni, WHOs emergencies chief, Peter Salama, said in a Twitter post. So far, the Ebola work in Beni has been suspended twice since the outbreak was declared on Aug. 1. A dead cityŽ of mourning in response to a rebel attack caused the “rst. Wednesdays violence caused the second. With each pause, crucial efforts to track thousands of possible Ebola contacts can slide, risking further infections. Defending themselves, Beni residents have pointed out the shock of having one of the worlds most notorious diseases appear along with strangers in biohazard suits who tell them how to say goodbye to loved ones killed by the virus. Until now we didnt know enough about Ebola and we felt marginalized when Red Cross agents came in and took the corpse and buried it without family members playing a role,Ž Beni resident Patrick Kyana, who said a friend lost his father to the virus, told The Associated Press. Its very dif“cult. Imagine that your son dies and someone refuses to let you assist in his burial. In Africa we respect death greatly.Ž Until recently many people in Beni didnt believe that Ebola existed, thinking it was a government plot to further delay presidential elections, Kizito Hangi, president of Benis civil society, told the AP. Now the population has started to catch on and cooperate, Hangi said. The problem was that the health workers all came from outside, but local specialists have been included to persuade and inform people in local languages.Ž The head of emergency Ebola operations with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Jamie LeSueur, acknowledged the problem. In early October two Red Cross volunteers were severely injured in an attack during safe burials in the community of Butemo. Another volunteer was injured in September by people throwing stones. It raised a lot of questions for all of us. Where is the violence coming from?Ž he said. They have stepped up efforts to collaborate with communities and be clearer about messaging while working within cultural norms as best as possible. Of course there are limitations,Ž LeSueur said. Some people like to view the corpse as it is buried but with Ebola it is dif“cult to open up the body bag.Ž In the emotionally charged environment where families have lost loved ones, a misstep could quickly raise tensions. While Congos government is acting to give more protection to its own safe burial teams in Beni, LeSueur noted that the militarizationŽ of similar efforts in the far deadlier Ebola outbreak in West Africa a few years ago led some residents to hide or not report deaths from the virus. I dont think that will be the case in this eventŽ but everyone remembers that lesson, he said. With its position of neutrality the Red Cross doesnt use armed guards in any case, LeSueur added. Community acceptance, thats our security.ŽEBOLAFROM PAGE 1 By RUSS BYNUM and BRENDAN FARRINGTONASSOCIATED PRESSMEXICO BEACH, Fla. „ Rescuers intensi“ed efforts Saturday to “nd survivors who might be trapped amid the ruins of a small Florida Panhandle community nearly obliterated by Hurricane Michael, where one body has already been recovered, tempers are ”aring, and power could be out for weeks. Crews with dogs went door-to-door in Mexico Beach, pushing aside debris to get inside badly damaged structures in a second wave of searches following what they described as an initial, hastyŽ search of the area. About 1,700 search and rescue personnel have checked 25,000 homes, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said. Authorities say there is little doubt the death toll will rise from the storm, which made landfall Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane with 155 mph winds and heavy storm surge. The tally of lives lost across the South stood at 15, including the victim found in the rubble of Mexico Beach, where about 1,000 people live. Everything is time consuming,Ž said Capt. Ignatius Carroll, of the South Florida Urban Search and Rescue task force. You dont want to put a rush on a thorough rescue.Ž More roads were passable along the storm-ravaged coast as crews cleared downed trees and power lines, but traf“c lights remained out and long lines heightened tensions at one of the areas few open gas stations. I want you to get back in your vehicle and stop!Ž one woman shouted at a man accosting her as she tried to squeeze her car between two idling vehicles at a Panama City service station running two fuel pumps on a generator. Youre an idiot!Ž the man shouted back. About 4,000 members of Floridas national guard have been called up to deal with the storm, including 500 added on Saturday. Nearly 2,000 law-enforcement of“cials have been sent into the Panhandle. Schools will stay closed inde“nitely, a hospital halted operations and sent 200 patients to hospitals elsewhere in Florida and in Alabama, and more than 253,000 customers in the Panhandle remain without power. Everybody just needs to help each other right now,Ž Scott said after meeting with emergency responders in the Panama City area. Some residents were packing up and getting as far away as they could. Were getting our stuff and were going,Ž said Jeff Pearsey, 48. Michael was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the U.S. While most residents ”ed ahead of the storms arrival, others stayed to face the hurricane. Some barely escaped with their lives as homes were pushed off their foundations and whole neighborhoods became submerged. How many others were not so fortunate was still not clear. By one count, state of“cials said, 285 people in Mexico Beach de“ed mandatory evacuation orders and stayed behind. Its unclear how many people stayed behind in nearby communities. One who did, Albert Blackwell, was preparing on Saturday to cover holes in the roof of his apartment and take a chain saw to trees that fell and broke his windows just outside Panama City. Im the idiot that rode it out here in this place,Ž said Blackwell, 65, sweat dripping from his face. He doesnt plan to leave; he wants to protect his home from looters. Emergency of“cials said theyve received thousands of calls asking about missing people, but with cellphone service out across a wide area, they found it impossible to know who among those unaccounted for were safe but just unable to dial out to friends or family. Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long said he expected the death toll to rise. Searchers were trying to determine if the person found dead in Mexico Beach had been alone or was part of a family. Authorities have set up distribution centers to dole out food and water to victims. Theyve also set up a triage tent to treat residents stepping on nails and cutting themselves on debris. President Donald Trump announced plans to visit Florida and hard-hit Georgia early next week but didnt say what day he would arrive. On Saturday he approved federal disaster aid relief for four Alabama counties affected by the storm.Searches intensify after body found in Michaels wake AP PHOTOMembers of a South Florida urban search and rescue team try to gain entry to a home while looking for survivors of hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Friday.

Without using leverage, this would turn a $1,000 investment into $847. Thats not a great performance, but you live to invest another day, and a gain of about 18 percent would make up for the loss. On the other hand, a triple-leveraged (3xŽ) S&P 500 ETF would turn that into a gain of 30 percent, a drop of 90 percent, and a gain of 30 percent. Your original $1,000 investment would plunge in value to just $169 „ and you would need a 492 percent rebound just to get back to even. Thats why leveraged ETFs are so dangerous. Of course, this is a simplified example and the market doesnt generally move 10 percent (or 30 percent) in a day, but even smaller ups and downs can have a devastating effect over time.

Its number of monthly active users jumped 11 percent year over year to over 2.2 billion people (!) in the second quarter of 2018; roughly two-thirds of those folks logged in to the service at least once a day. Facebook had no trouble monetizing all of that engagement, either, as advertising sales spiked 42 percent year over year to $13 billion. Facebooks average revenue per user has room to grow, and the company is still early in the game in exploiting the fast-growing online advertising industry. Importantly, it also owns other major social media businesses, including WhatsApp and Instagram. Its media empire generates a gross profit margin of 83 percent and an operating profit margin of 44 percent. Sure, the companys expansion pace is slowing, as tends to happen with companies that grow huge. Its also likely that its fat profit margins will shrink some as Facebook spends billions bulking up its data infrastructure and rolling out service improvements. But theres no social media business that can come close to claiming the community engagement Facebook has attracted, let alone its market-thumping earnings power. With its core business looking healthy, this stock could be poised for strong long-term gains. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Facebook.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentHung UpMy dumbest investment was in the Finnish telecom Nokia. I read in a well-respected investment newsletter that the company would soon be closing a deal to sell equipment in Russia. But the market crash of 2008 sent Nokia shares down deep. I kept hanging in there, but finally got disgusted and took the loss. It was too much of a hassle, waiting on a loser. I still wish them luck. „ A.M., online The Fool Responds: Nokia was once a titan in the smartphone arena, boasting more than half the global market in 2007. By 2013, though, its share had dropped to 2 percent. The 2008-2009 market crash was not its sole problem, though „ its lunch was being eaten by Apple and Googles Android system. While other companies stocks recovered after the market crash, Nokias stock kept dropping for some years. Nokia is still a significant smartphone name, but its no longer making its own devices. It sold its smartphone business to HMD Global (a company run by former Nokia executives) and is licensing its name, which appears on the phones. Never invest in a stock just because of rumors youve heard about it „ and if its falling, be sure to do enough digging to find out whether its troubles seem temporary or lasting. Nokia still has believers today; they expect growth from deals with China-based companies and the rollout of new 5G networks. Share-Splitting MathQDoes it benefit shareholders when companies buy back shares? „ G.L., onlineAIt certainly can, as the reduction in the share count leaves each remaining share with a bigger stake in the company. (Imagine a pizza being cut into seven instead of eight pieces „ each piece will be bigger.) But the company should buy back shares only when theyre undervalued. If it buys back overvalued shares, it gets fewer shares for its money and destroys shareholder value. That money might have been better spent paying dividends or in some other way. Heres how buybacks work, in a simplified example: Imagine that Acme Explosives (ticker: KBOOM) earnings have stalled at $10 million annually, and it has 10 million shares outstanding. Its earnings per share (EPS) are thus $1. If Acme buys back a tenth of its shares, leaving 9 million, then its EPS suddenly rises to $1.11 ($10 million divided by 9 million). When studying a companys financials, its preferable to see earnings growing mostly due to business growth, not share buybacks. You can examine a companys income statement for signs of buybacks „ or look up news reports on them. Apple, for example, had 6.5 billion shares outstanding back in 2013, and its recent share count was 4.9 billion. That reflects share buybacks. ***QIf I buy shares of a stock after its date of recordŽ for a stock split, but before the actual split, will I get the additional shares? „ R.B., Dothan, AlabamaAYes. As long as youre holding the stock on the date of the split, your shares will be split „ increasing in number and decreasing in share price proportionately. The record date is mainly for accounting purposes.Want more information about stocks?

But beware of leveraged ETFs „ the ones that tend to have 3xŽ or 2xŽ in their names. First, though, understand what ETFs are. Theyre kind of like mutual funds (index funds, typically) that trade like stocks. You can buy or sell as little as a single share, as often as youd like during the trading day „ but youre often best served holding on to good ones for years, just as with stocks of great companies. Leveraged ETFs, though, are designed to deliver some multiple of the daily performance of whatever underlying index the ETF tracks. (A 2xŽ fund, for example, seeks to double the indexs return.) But over time, daily movements in the underlying index can create losses for those who hold shares over longer periods of time „ even if the index rises overall. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I am conicted about boundaries being crossed between my family therapist and me. My 7-year-old son and I have been seeing someone we both bonded with and felt comfortable with. That is, until the therapist and I found each other on an online dating site. We matched a few months ago. Once I realized it was him, I felt embarrassed and blocked him on the site. He sent me an email within three minutes acknowledging that he knew it was me. He said he thought I was awesomeŽ and that I look better in person than in my pics. I was so embarrassed I didnt respond. A couple of months went by and neither of us brought it up. My son invited him to his birthday party and he did attend. It wasnt until later that I realized therapists are not supposed to attend social events with patients. We also text often, during late-night hours. A couple of weeks after my sons birthday party he tried matching with me again on the dating site. I was surprised and sent him a text asking him what he was doing. He responded by asking me if I was enjoying it, but did not answer my question. I do have a slight crush on him, but Im not sure what his intentions are. I am aware that its unethical. „ UNETHICAL CRUSH DEAR UNETHICAL: You are correct that what the therapist has been doing is a breach of professional ethics. There is a reason for it. Patients are extremely vulnerable to manipulation. When the online irtation rst started, you should have changed therapists. Heaven only knows how many other patients he has done this with. My advice is to draw the line, establish a working relationship with another therapist, and decide whether you want to report him to the association that licensed him to practice. You may have a crush on him, but what he is doing is predatory. DEAR ABBY: Common manners are going extinct quicker than the dinosaurs did. I was raised to open doors, stand up for women sitting down at the table, etc. Nowadays opening the door for most women feels like getting slapped in the face. There is no acknowledgment of any kind. Has our society disintegrated that far? These days if I open the door for someone and she doesnt acknowledge the courtesy, I say, Thank you!Ž loud enough for her to hear and watch the reaction. Im waiting for someone to slap me one day. „ GOOD MANNERS IN TEXAS DEAR GOOD MANNERS: I agree that when a courtesy is extended, it should be acknowledged. If it isnt, shouting at someone is rude and makes you appear more like a petulant boor rather than the genteel individual your parents raised you to be. P.S. When a gentleman opens a door for me „ oldfashioned girl that I am „ I always thank him. Then I add, You were raised RIGHT!Ž which is true, and we go our separate ways with a smile.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

I dont know where to start. „ Terry from Texas Dear Terry: Moving is a big step, and it can be expensive. Doing your homework is key. First contact the American Moving & Storage Association (www.moving. org). They certify movers to make sure that you are getting a professional operator. Then take these steps: 1. Make sure you fully understand the bid. Get a binding estimate rather than a guestimate,Ž where the price might be higher than the quote. 2. Read the ne print carefully, so you know precisely whats included. 3. Consider purchasing extra insurance, if that is an option, in order to have plenty of coverage for potential damages. P.S.: If you can move in the o-season, from around April through September, prices will be lower. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I have just gotten married, and Im starting to cook. How many knives do I need in my new kitchen? What kind? „ Becky from Illinois Dear Becky: Most cooks know that its important to have a good, sharp knife to take care of kitchen cooking. In fact, you only need three basic knives to do your culinary duties when you begin cooking. You may add more as your skills develop. Here are the basics: 1. A long chefs knife will be key for chopping and slicing. 2. A paring knife with a 2to 4-inch blade will be good for peeling vegetables and fruits. 3. A serrated knife is essential for slicing bread. „ Heloise Dear Readers: All of us eat drink and eat around our computers, although its not the best idea. And, of course, accidents do happen. If you spill liquid into your keyboard, act quickly. Shut the computer down and disconnect the keyboard. If the liquid is a non-sticky beverage and its not a big amount, turn the keyboard upside down to drain out as much of the liquid as you can. A hair dryer will help to dry out the keyboard, but dont hold it too close. Be sure to move the dryer around. Wipe o any leftover moisture with a clean cloth. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: My children are tired of the same old breakfast foods. Do you have any ideas for something else I can feed them? „ Emily from Connecticut Dear Emily: Yes, I do. For example, you can put cut-up fruit and yogurt in icecream cones, or you can make this crunchy breakfast bread. Mix together 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter,1/4 cup honey and 2/3 cup of non-fat dry milk powder. Add 3 cups of your childs favorite dry, pebble-type cereal. Spread onto a greased 8-inch pan and bake for 20 minutes at 325 degrees. Cool and cut into bars. „ HeloiseMom is ustered to discover her family therapist on dating siteDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Morales left his neighbors in a bathroom below the boats deck, while he sat in the captains chair. He said they stayed in the boat for six hours before the winds calmed and the surge receded. I lost everything „ my clothes, wallet, credit cards,Ž he said. But I made it.Ž Bill Shockey, 86, refused when his daughter pleaded with him to leave Mexico Beach. He said he didnt want to leave behind his collection of Gone with the WindŽ dishes and antique dolls. So he stashed those valuables up high in a closet before heading to his daughters newly built two-story home next door. With a pocket full of cigars and his cat named Andy, Shockey watched the hurricane roll in from an upstairs bedroom. The wind shredded the roof of his single-story home. Water rose nearly to the top of his garage door. A neighbors home across the street got shoved off its foundation. Was he scared? Worried, I think, is more like it,Ž Shockey said. His daughters home took in some ”oodwaters downstairs, but was otherwise unscathed. Shockeys own home of 24 years didnt fare so well, though his collectibles survived. Its a wipe out,Ž he said, adding that he plans to sell his property rather than rebuild. Whenever they want, Im going to move in with my son in Georgia.Ž For years, Hal Summers has managed Killer Seafood, a Mexico Beach restaurant known for its tuna tacos. Michael destroyed the eatery as well as Summers townhome on the beach. Summers rode out the storm at his parents house nearby. They had evacuated, but an elderly friend was staying there and Summers promised to watch him. Summers knew they had to get out when, about 30 minutes after the storm made landfall, water surging into the homes kitchen rose up to his neck. He opened the front door and fell in deeper when he tried to step onto front stairs that had washed away. Summers said his parents recently added a large, outdoor bathroom onto their home and he saw the door was open. The large sink was still above the water. He grabbed a bench that was ”oating by, and shoved it into the open bathroom to give them something to stand on. Then he helped the elderly man inside. I knew we could sit on the sink or we could stand on the sink if we had to,Ž Summers said. I had to hold the door shut or it would just keep ”ooding. There was a little crack and I could just see everything ”ying. I thought, Oh my God.Ž They never had to stand on the bathroom sink. Finally, the ”ooding receded. While Garcia and his wife survived the hurricanes wrath, he was out Friday searching for his daughter and mother. Kristen Garcia, 32, and her 90-year-old grandmother, Jadwiga Garcia, were staying in a second-”oor beachfront apartment Wednesday as the storm came ashore. Garcia said his daughter called him to say the apartment was ”ooding and they had taken shelter in the bathroom. He hadnt seen them in the two days since the storm passed, and hadnt been able to gain access to their apartment. He had tears in his eyes recalling their last conversation. She said, Dad, get down here,Ž Garcia said. I said, Its too late.ŽFURYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOPeople drive along a damaged road in the aftermath of hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Friday. By TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESSFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. „ Floridas disjointed property insurance system that relies almost exclusively on small and midsize companies will take a multibillion-dollar loss from Hurricane Michael, but has suf“cient reserves and backups that providers should be able to pay claims without problems, analysts say. Major national players like State Farm, Allstate and Liberty Mutual write few if any homeowners policies in Florida because of the high risk of hurricane losses, leaving the market to smaller companies and the state-created insurer of last resort, Citizens Property. Boston-based Karen Clark & Company, which models catastrophes, estimates Florida private insurers will pay $6 billion in claims for wind and storm surge damage to residential, commercial and industrial properties and vehicles. The estimate doesnt include losses covered by the National Flood Insurance Program, which has about 60,000 policies in the hardest-hit Florida counties. The program had no immediate estimate on its losses. Analysts say that, despite their smaller size, Florida insurers should be able to cover their Michael losses through re-insurance „ policies insurance companies purchase from global companies like Lloyds of London to cover catastrophic losses. Most of the states damage from Wednesdays Category 4 storm is in the sparsely populated Panhandle, lessening the “nancial blow. Florida insurers are built to be able to withstand these types of storms that are expected to happen every 10 to 15 years,Ž according to Brian C. Schneider, a senior director at the analytics “rm Fitch Ratings. The company said the reinsurance programs performed well after Hurricane Irma last year, which caused about $50 billion in damages in Florida. But, Schneider said, the industry believes many Florida insurers would not survive if a major storm made a direct hit on Miami, Tampa or another major city. The reinsurance company Swiss Re estimated last year that a Category 5 storm hitting Miami could potentially cost the industry almost $200 billion. The state has about $17 billion in a fund to help private companies pay hurricane claims if they run into trouble. Major insurance companies ”ed Floridas homeowners market after 1992s Category 5 Hurricane Andrew hit south of Miami, destroying much of the city of Homestead and causing $45 billion in damages, adjusted for in”ation. After the companies ”ed, many property owners could only get policies from Citizens Property and its predecessor, peaking at about 1.5 million policies in 2012. The state, wanting to reduce its exposure, for most of the last 20 years has been enticing smaller, niche companies into the market but required them to obtain re-insurance. The industry was also helped by a 12-year gap between hurricanes hitting the state from 2005 to last year. Their revenue is helped as Florida has the most expensive homeowners insurance in the nation, according to the Insurance Information Institute, with homeowners paying an average annual cost of just under $2,000 in 2015, the latest year available. The push worked as Citizens footprint has shrunk by 72 percent, but remains the states second-largest property insurer with about 420,000 policies „ most of them in South Florida, far from Michaels damage zone.

Miltons 7-yard touchdown with 12:14 left completed a comeback for the Knights (6-0, 3-0 American Athletic Conference), who trailed 30-14 with 2:04 left in the “rst half. The victory was UCFs 19th straight „ the nations longest winning streak „ but it was by far the toughest game of the season for the Knights, who defeated their “rst “ve opponents by double-digits. Even in the closing seconds, Memphis (4-3, 1-3) seemed on the way to at least have a chance for a game-winning “eld goal as the Tigers moved to the UCF 31. Memphis botched clock management in the “nal 30 seconds, getting hit with a motion penalty that required a clock runoff, and then Brady White completed a 9-yard pass to Tony Pollard and the seconds slipped away. Darrell Henderson, who leads the nation in rushing, had 199 yards and a touchdown on the ground on a career-best 31 carries for Memphis. It was the “rst meeting since last years American Athletic Conference championship game, which UCF won 62-55 in double overtime. Saturdays momentum swing for the Knights, who struggled to contain Memphis in the early stages, came in the third quarter. With UCF facing fourth-and-1 at their 29, the Tigers bunched at the line of scrimmage and quickly ran a play. Taj McGowan burst through the initial defense and went 71 yards for a touchdown to cut the Memphis lead to 30-24. That set the stage for Miltons winning score, capping a 74-yard drive.THE TAKEAWAYUCF: Milton, a Heisman Trophy candidate, led the Knights in a game where they struggled at time By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORPitching depth was the mother of necessity. And the lack of it, nine years ago, during weekend tournaments, helped a travel team based in Venice, evolve into the Florida Burn. Several years ago, Craig Faulkner and I were coaching a summer league,Ž said Mark Guthrie, a 15-year former Major League Baseball veteran, who along with Faulkner, the Venice High School baseball coach, founded the Florida Burn. A team made up of players from Venice High School. We had a pretty good group. There were some talented incoming freshman and there were some incoming juniors. We had 15 or 16 players and the kids did very well. They entered national tournaments, and were getting to the “nal eight and sometimes the “nal four, and then we would run out of pitching. If we play eight games in a weekend, it becomes kind of dif“cult.ŽBuilding a successful foundationThe program has sent a deep volume of players to the professional and collegiate levels, earning a reputation for developing athletes who are fundamentally sound, and possess the necessary attributes to succeed in a “ercely competitive environment. The Florida Burns commitment to excellence is so renowned, that theyre sought out by those wanting to improve their skills and direct their energies toward reaching the next level. When we got into this, we had a lot of other organizations calling our kids, asking them to come play,Ž said Guthrie. We dont recruit kids. We throw out the information for our tryouts, and they show up. If theres someone who has questions about the organization, we can call him, but we dont have a recruiter as some organizations do. Ours is just really word-of-mouth. Thats just how weve always done it.ŽA steady influencePlayers who go through the program, have an opportunity to work with an experienced coaching staff, who themselves enjoyed successful careers at the collegiate and professional levels, providing in-depth and comprehensive instruction.

WALKERAP SPORTS WRITERNASHVILLE, Tenn. „ Jordan Scarlett ran 48 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on the “rst play of the fourth quarter, and No. 14 Florida rallied from an 18-point de“cit to beat Vanderbilt 37-27 Saturday in a game marred by a near brawl with both head coaches yelling as each team spilled onto the “eld. Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey was on hand for a “rst-hand view of the incident. An of“cial held back Florida coach Dan Mullen as he yelled at Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason who was near the Gators sideline after checking on the Commodore defender whose helmet was knocked off by a hit by linebacker James Houston IV. Both teams spilled onto the “eld, drawing unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. The penalty cost the Gators their leading tackler, with Vosean Joseph ejected for his second such penalty of the “rst half. Two people escorted an emotional Joseph off the “eld. Mullen and Mason hugged each other at mid“eld after the game. That overshadowed the Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) scoring 24 straight points after By NICOLAS ANILASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia „ Gary Woodland birdied the 18th hole for a 5-under 67 to move into a three-way tie for the lead with Marc Leishman and Shubhankar Sharma after three rounds of the CIMB Classic on Saturday. Woodland just missed an eagle putt, while Sharma (66) and Leishman (67) had to settle for pars on the par“ve “nal hole. Playing in the last threesome of the day, the leading trio had 54-hole totals of 19-under 197 on the TPC Kuala Lumpur West course. They had a two-stroke lead over Louis Oosthuizen, who moved up the leaderboard with a 65, and “rst-round leader Bronson Burgoon (67) in the “rst of three U.S. PGA Tour events in Asia. Woodland equaled the course record of 61 on Friday that Justin Thomas shot on his way to winning the event in 2015. The American was again consistent. Kind of got a little loose there a little bit on the back nine, maybe ran out of gas a little, but it was nice to “nish up with a birdie and get some momentum going into tomorrow,Ž Woodland said. Leishman had an eagle and three birdies on his “rst “ve holes to be 5 under, but was 1 over on the back nine with bogeys on the 11th and 13th after a birdie on the 10th. Happy with the round, gave myself a good chance tomorrow, so hopefully I can be hot like I was that “rst 10 holes today,Ž Leishman said. Sharma has already won in Malaysia this year when he clinched the Maybank Championship in February. Good thing is that Ive been in this position before so I know what happens and what my mind goes through, so Ill just try and relax myself as much as possible,Ž Sharma said. The way Im playing, Im pretty sure Ill play well tomorrow as well.Ž Stewart Cink shot 63 for the low round of the day and was four strokes off the lead.

Brayden Point scored in both the second and third periods, and Andrei Vasilevskiy had 30 saves for Tampa Bay. Alex Killorn, Nikita Kucherov and J.T. Miller had the other Lightning goals. Tampa Bay, which led the NHL in goals last season, had scored just twice over 125 minutes in its “rst two games. Tampa Bay was held scoreless during the “nal 159:27 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Final by eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington. Columbus got goals from Josh Anderson and Oliver Bjorkstrand, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 23 shots. Hedman and Paquette scored before Gourde put the Lightning up 3-0 late in the “rst and stopped an 0 for 10 season-opening Tampa Bay power-play slide. Anderson, who beat Tampa Bays Dan Girardi to wipeout a potential icing and soon after scored, and Bjorkstrand cut the Blue Jackets de“cit to one in the second. Points goal with 44.6 seconds left in the second made it 4-2. Point and Alex Killorn both had a power-play goal during a four-goal third-period that also saw Kucherov get his “rst goal.

WALTON HEATH, England (AP) „ Eddie Pepperell will take a three-shot lead into the “nal round of the British Masters after a 1-under 71 Saturday as he looked for his second European Tour title and a likely place in next years Masters. Pepperell was on 9-under 207 at Walton Heath with fellow Englishman Jordan Smith (70), Swedens Alexander Bjork (68), American Julian Suri (69) and Frances Julien Guerrier (70) tied for second. A victory on Sunday would take Pepperell into the worlds top 35 and almost certainly secure a Masters debut in 2019. The top 50 at the end of the year are guaranteed a place in the “rst major of the year at Augusta National in April. The 27-year-old Pepperell began the day with a three-shot lead and was four clear when he holed from 14 feet for an eagle on the par“ve 11th, with playing partners Smith and Matt Wallace (73) remarkably doing likewise. Smith also birdied the 12th after Pepperell three-putted and another birdie on the 15th took Smith within two shots of the lead, only for him to immediately drop a shot on the next. Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood was seven shots off the pace after rebounding from a 77 on Friday with a 70, while Ryder Cup teammate and tournament host Justin Rose was another stroke adrift following a 69. A top-two finish on Sunday would see Rose reach the top of the world rankings for the second time this season, the 38-year-old having spent two weeks as No. 1 in September. That hasnt actually been on my mind,Ž Rose said. Its going to be tough to get there as Ive got a lot of points to defend, but Ive just got to focus on playing well.ŽBy JENNA FRYERAP AUTO RACING WRITERTALLADEGA, Ala. „ Times were already changing long before Jimmie Johnson strolled through a Las Vegas casino unnoticed, full “resuit and all. It was the start of NASCARs playoffs and the seven-time champion, wearing a ”ame-retardant billboard, was surprised that he failed to garner even a quizzical stare. Johnson had already lost Lowes, the only sponsor hes had at NASCARs top level. Now he was just another face in the crowd even though the start of the playoffs were just days away and the most decorated driver of his generation was there to promote. How utterly off-kilter for Johnson. But losing Lowes, ”oundering in a long losing streak during a dismal time at Hendrick Motorsports, going unnoticed in a hotel lobby, none of that compared to what was still to come in this bizarre season for Seven Time.Ž The biggest stunner came this week when team owner Rick Hendrick, after 17 years of babysitting the delicate relationship between Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus, pulled the plug on the longest pairing in NASCAR. Knaus built the No. 48 team around Johnson from scratch. He was atop the pit box for the record-tying seven titles and 81 of Johnsons 83 career Cup victories. The two have been together since bachelorhood, through marriage and now children for both. They were fueled by the chase for eight, the elusive number neither The King of The Intimidator could reach. Their farewell tour begins Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, and when they part, Johnson still will be tied with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. with seven titles. Knaus will be tied with crew chief Dale Inman. If No. 8 ever comes, it will come for one of them, not both. Knaus is moving to the No. 24 team, where he started at Hendrick Motorsports so many years ago building cars for a new guy named Jeff Gordon, to crew chief another fresh-faced young talent in William Byron. Rick Hendrick went to his farm system to pair Johnson with Kevin Meendering, one of those lifelong Hendrick guys who started with the company as a high school part-timer and learned how to be a crew chief. It is the end of an era, indeed. Weve lasted longer than the average length of a marriage in the United States. Weve worked really hard,Ž Knaus said. So hard they nearly destroyed the relationship on more than one occasion. Johnson and Knaus arent wired the same but have always chased winning. The path each took wasnt always orderly and Knaus, so rigid, intense and in”exible, sometimes clashed with Johnsons easygoing demeanor. The louder Knaus yelled, the quieter Johnson became. Hendrick threatened to break them up. Sat them down over milk and cookies because they were acting like children, blaming each other and bickering over their inability to win a championship. They agreed to work as hard on their relationship as they were working on their goals, and it led to title after title and a winning pace not seen in decades. Only now they arent winning anymore, and for a variety of reasons that Johnson and Knaus cannot solely control. Hendrick Motorsports is in a massive rebuild, Chevrolet has lagged behind its competitors this year and Johnsons young teammates dont know what they dont know so arent in position to take charge of the march out of this mess. Thats how Johnson gets stuck in a 53-race losing streak headed into Sunday. And at some point, Hendrick has no choice but to step in and try something new, anything new, even if it means splitting the greatest combination since Petty and Inman. Its not like were trying to kill each other. Thats not where this is,Ž Knaus said. Its an opportunity for growth for both of us. In order to be committed in a team-oriented environment for that long, theres a lot of deep digging that you have to get through. And weve done that, and weve put forth the effort and its time right now to do something different. It really is its the right time for the company.Ž So, six more races, thats all these two have got left together, and theyd like to make it count. But anything goes these “nal six weeks because when its over, nothing will be the same. Knaus will be at the No. 24 trying to mold Byron into the next Johnson or Gordon. Johnson will have a new sponsorship and new face leading his team as Hendrick gives Meendering a chance to be the next Knaus. Until then, they have nothing to lose and every reason to try to snap that losing streak and celebrate one last time in victory lane together. Were “erce competitors, we both want to win races, we both want to win championships and we acknowledge the fact that weve had a hell of a run,Ž Johnson said. Its been a long, amazing run of 17 years. Sometimes change brings new opportunity. Change brings excitement, a new breath of fresh air, a spark. Whatever it might be, that opportunity is now here for us. Weve been highly committed to each other, this team and our relationship, but its just to the point where we feel like change is the next step and potentially the next step for our next level of greatness as individuals. It just feels like its time.Ž Pepperell takes 3-shot lead into final round of British MastersTalladega starts final 6-week run for Johnson and Knaus GOLF: British Masters NASCAR: Talladega NHL: Tampa Bay 8, Columbus 2Lightning stop scoring drought, beat Blue Jackets 8-2 AP PHOTOTampa Bay Lightning center Brayden Point celebrates his goal against the Columbus Blue Jackets during the second period of Saturdays game.


The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 SP Page 3 skills and abilities from the time they join the Burn, to when they leave the program, to attend college or play professionally, is a testament to the strong foundation and commitment to the program made by the coaches. When I see the people whove joined our group, the coaching staff, guys that are helping out, it doesnt surprise me how the players have progressed,Ž said Guthrie. I really believe that once our kids get to play for these guys, it will be the best opportunity they can have, and thats really all you can ask for. I have very good friends on the coaching staff. They do a great job.Ž The Burn has multiple teams competing at multiple levels, with 200 players participating in the program each summer. Our goal is to keep all 200 players happy,Ž said Guthrie. Were very fortunate to have coaches who are on the same page as we are, coaches that have learned the same system weve learned and have the same objectives that we do.ŽFinding your placeThis fall, the Burn features seven teams, four platinum and three premier teams, and theres a place for every player participating in the program. There are certain kids that are top level team kids, and there are kids that are third level team kids, and each team provides a different experience,Ž said Guthrie. The Burn has evolved from its nascent stages when they had only one or two teams, showcasing some of the areas best players. Guthrie, has three sons, and each of them played baseball at a different level. If we have a kid who plays on the third team or the fourth team, and he wants to try and develop himself to get better, thats one thing, and thats great for him,Ž said Guthrie. We have the platform to do that with the Florida Burn.Ž However, the Burn isnt just limited to the games elite, its for those players who have a passion and enthusiasm for baseball thats palpable. But if we have a kid who just loves playing the game, maybe hes not going to be a high velocity guy or maybe he struggles with certain aspects of the game. But man, he still loves going out there doing it. And if thats what he wants to do, theres a spot for that as well.Ž The evolution process of the players, having the opportunity to watch them develop, is extremely satisfying for the coaches. A number of players have emerged, with a sharp trajectory, rising from the third team as a sophomore, to the second team as a junior and playing with the Burns top team as a senior, said Guthrie. Players whove been cut previously, have returned, and through their hard work and determination have made teams, risen to higher levels and have gone on to play collegiately. So, theres all different kinds, and when youre dealing with a large quantity of kids, you dont know where theyre all going to end up; its not an exact science,Ž said Guthrie. We do the best we can, but we dont get it 100 percent right. In that respect, its very good for us to have multiple levels of teams and opportunities for everybody to keep playing.ŽBuilding bondsThe coaching staff is passionate about what they do, and not only do they derive a great deal of satisfaction from watching the players progress, they develop relationships with the players, providing them with insight and knowledge that goes far beyond the baseball diamond. As a coach, with the high school kids that I have, in the summer and fall leagues, I will tell them what I think, and try to get them better,Ž said Guthrie. The problem is that theres so many kids that arent coached by the time they get to the high school level. Were really starting with an open book, Theres a lot to do. Theres a lot for them to learn. The intricacies of the game can make them look like an instinctively better player, Thats what were trying to develop.ŽFamily and a fortuitous opportunityGuthrie never envisioned the Burn would grow and ”ourish into the program that its become. It was in 2004, while recovering from shoulder surgery, that he had an opportunity to help his sons during the baseball season. He hadnt had much of a chance to see them play, and began working with a 9-year-old team, that his son Dalton and his friends were playing on. We just went around the park, and made up a little team, played and did some stuff,Ž said Guthrie. That team ended up staying together all through their 14-year-old year. We had a lot of professional players end up being on that team. I think there were six professional players and 12 collegiate players on that one 9-year-old team. Thats kind of what started it.ŽA different callingThe opportunity to take a year off from Major League Baseball and spend time with his family was an experience Guthrie enjoyed. He would go to spring training with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2005. Thats kind of what started it,Ž said Guthrie. I got my shoulder better. I was a 37 or 38 -year-old pitcher with the Rays. I wasnt the right age to be with the Rays. I came back, I was healthy and I was pitching well. I got released halfway through spring training. Lou Piniella called me in, and said, Hey, I think you can still play. Ill make some calls to some other people. Ill hook you up.Ž Guthrie was appreciative of Piniellas gesture, but found great satisfaction in being home with his family and coaching his kids. A member of the 1991 World Series Champions, the Minnesota Twins, Guthrie made the decision to retire after 15 years in the big leagues. The Venice High School graduate, developed a team for his oldest and middle sons, Kevin and Dalton, the Gulf Coast Greyhounds, coaching them until they began high school. It was from this nascent stage the Florida Burn would eventually emerge. Coming home provided Guthrie with an opportunity to stay in touch with the community, allowing him to develop relationships with people through the Burn.Imparting knowledgeThe players he coaches on the Burn are aware of Guthries Major League Baseball experience, but its the coaches depth of experience, their knowledge and methodologies, and how they can take that information and apply it to improve their game that are critical components. I think if they get an inkling that you dont know what youre talking about, your 15 year career goes right out the window,Ž said Guthrie. You have to show them that you do know what youre talking about. But you have to show them that you do care about them, and then you go from there. Kids today want answers, reasons for what theyre doing.Ž Guthrie isnt an overly mechanical teacher, and explains that to his pitchers and hitters as hes working with them. You have to show them how it feels and why it will be successful,Ž said Guthrie. You have to communicate with each kid differently.Ž Guthrie believes hes been successful as a coach because he had to work to survive at the Major League level, taking in every little piece of information. A guy like me, I had to continually talk to people, to try to “gure out what they were trying to tell me, and thats what we try to do with the kids,Ž said Guthrie.Preparation for the futureThe Burn is a key variable in preparing the players who participate in the program for baseball at the next level, the challenges theyll face, what they can expect, as they navigate through a world thats foreign and at times demanding and dif“cult. Theyre all different, some take in more than others, some buy in more than others, just like any program,Ž said Guthrie. Our job is to make sure that when they set foot on campus, or wherever they go, they know what theyre in for. College baseball is a different world. Its not high school baseball. They have guys who are feeding their families, guys who are getting a stipend for coaching. We try to make sure the kids are ready. We have to be realistic with them, and try to place them in the right places, and thats a dif“cult task.Ž The different dynamics endemic to high school baseball are also a critical component, where younger athletes progress from playing on all-star teams, move up the levels, and then “nd that only nine of them will be playing on the high school team. So, the coach becomes the villain for two-thirds of the kids in town, and thats a dif“cult pill to swallow for a lot of people, when you have to make those cuts,Ž said Guthrie. The high school coach is cut and dry, a lot of times when whos playing. The college guy is cut and dry, youre either going to play or youre not.Ž The Burn plays a key role by encouraging its players, so theyre able to ”ourish in the program, “nding the right place, putting them with the right coach and teammates, so they can succeed. While we still encourage, we have to be realistic, with what they want to accomplish,Ž said Guthrie. We try to explain to them in an honest manner, this is what you have to do to get there. Its just the way the game is. Sometimes you have to hear constructive criticism. Other times, you get praised when you accomplish those goals. Thats tough. Theres an art to that, and I think our coaches are pretty good with that.ŽBURNFROM PAGE 1By STEPHEN MCKAYSUN CORRESPONDENTWhen the scores from the 2018 Charlotte County Championships were announced at South County Regional Park in Punta Gorda Saturday, there was a huge collective cheer from the Port Charlotte Pirates when they learned they had swept the boys and girls team events. But those were just the “nal cheers, as each of the 24 events was highlighted by an ever-present roar streaming from the encouragement of poolside teammates. The Pirates tallied 561 points to take top honors in the girls meet, with Charlotte High scoring 529 and Lemon Bay 326. The “nal was razor thin in the boys competition as Port Charlotte edged Lemon Bay 466 to 465 with Charlotte scoring 421. The kids were excited for it, they came out here with the goal to win,Ž said Pirates coach J.R. Whaley. We had some really good swims from the upper-level kids. And the new swimmers have made huge strides and that means good things going forward. Weve got a few weeks now until districts and this gave us a lot of good information for (districts).Ž Though host Charlotte entered a relatively small squad, which made it dif“cult for it to accumulate team points, the Fightin Tarpons had a swimmer or diver “nish “rst in 17 of the 24 events. The Port Charlotte girls won four individual events and the boys one. Evelyn Negrette took the girls 200yard freestyle by better that “ve seconds. She also edged teammate Arianna JansonDugan in the 100 butter”y. Daisy Marquardt touched “rst in the girls 200 individual medley while Bryanna Robinson was best in the 100 backstroke. Furthermore, the Pirates were boosted in the team competition with depth. In addition to their “ve combined event wins, Port Charlotte picked up 14 top-3 “nishes. Weve been training really hard lately so I think thats really helped my times,Ž said the Pirates Janson-Dugan who earned a personal best in both individual events she swam. We still have a couple of weeks left before districts, so I think all of us can continue to improve.Ž Janson-Dugan picked up 32 points with a fourth in the 200-yard individual medley in addition to her runner-up in the 100-butter”y. Her brother, Kevin, also had a good day winning the boys 100 freestyle. He was second in the 100 backstroke. The strongest event for the Manta Rays was boys diving. Gage Denson added 20 points to the Lemon Bay overall score by collecting 180 points to win the six-dive event. Denson, a two-time state quali“er, produced another 17 team points with his runner-up “nish in the boys 50 freestyle. Collin McCarty, Hunter Fazler and Victor Fazler rang up 45 points for Lemon Bay in boys diving. Gage McCauley, a freshman at Charlotte High, secured 17 for second. The Tarpons Lindsey Akins led the way in girls diving with 168. She topped teammate Kylie McQueens 147.5. I do better when its early in the morning and when I have opponents to dive against,Ž said Akins, a junior. There arent always divers in other schools so we end up diving against each other. The pressure of having to compete against another school really helps my focus.Ž Like the swimmers, the divers are getting ready for the post season. Kylie had her best meet of the season and for Lindsey we toned it down a little bit,Ž said Charlotte dive coach Patti Oaks. Today we were focusing on dives (Lindsey) will need for districts. Todays dives had some lower degrees-of-dif“culty that shell need t oget right.Ž For host Port Charlotte, their list of event winners was long. The Tarpons girls were “rst in four individual events and swept all three relays. The boys were tops in seven individual races while also winning three relays. Their swimming event winners were Karys Nelson (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle), Melody Stelmaszek (500 freestyle) and Vanessa Deel (100 breaststroke). The boys touching “rst were James Rose (200 freestyle, 100 butter”y), Dylan Hacker (200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke), Joshua Eaton (50 freestyle, 100 backstroke) and Casey Keller (500 freestyle). We dont have the numbers, so for us to stay as close as we did with about half as many kids is a pretty impressive day,Ž said Port Charlotte coach Jeff Cain. Right now, were gearing up for districts, regionals and states. We practiced this morning before the meet and the team is tired. When we get to the post season, thats when we expect to be at our best.ŽPort Charlotte sweeps County Championships SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOPort Charlottes Evelyn Negrette wins the 100 YD Butter”y event on Saturday during the county swim meet. By JACOB HOAGSTAFF WRITERAfter Hurricane Michael became a threat to the Florida panhandle, forcing the cancelation of the FSU cross country invite, local teams had to scramble for a new event. A few teams were able to slide into the Lely Trojan Invitational, an event in which the Charlotte High School girls team took the top spot. Charlotte (50) beat out 19 other schools including Venice (“fth place, 165) and Port Charlotte (sixth place, 169). Scoring for the Lady Tarpons were Mackenzie Flowers (6th, 20:53.10), Victoria Simeone (8th, 20:51.41), Hannah Piacitelli (13th, 21:08.98), Aleecia Collins (14th, 21:10.57) and Alexa Roughton (18th, 21:17.91). For Port Charlotte, Isabella Coogan was the top local runner “nishing second behind Cape Corals Cheyenne Young. Coogan “nished in 19:11.06.

Page 4 SP The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018By JAY COHENAP SPORTS WRITERMILWAUKEE „ Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers know all about performing in the postseason. Backed into a tough spot Saturday, the red-headed slugger delivered once again. Shut down for most of the afternoon, Los Angeles staged another late rally and Turner hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4-3 victory that evened the NL Championship Series at a game apiece. The high-powered Dodgers had two measly singles off Wade Miley before breaking through against one of baseballs best bullpens. After forcing the Brewers to use six relievers in Milwaukees 6-5 victory Friday night, the NL West champions put that extended look to good use in Game 2, especially against faltering All-Star Jeremy Jeffress. As long as we have outs left, we know were in the game,Ž Turner said. Milwaukee wasted a terri“c performance by Miley in its “rst loss in three weeks, ending a 12-game winning streak that produced free burgers for its fans as part of a promotion by a local restaurant chain. Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw homered, and Lorenzo Cain robbed David Freese of a two-run drive with a leaping grab over the wall in center Miley pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his second career playoff start and had two hits in his “rst multihit game since 2014. We were in really good shape with the effort that Wade gave us,Ž Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. He pitched beautifully.Ž The best-of-seven series moves to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night. Walker Buehler pitches for Los Angeles and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee. Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth delighting a yellow towel-waving crowd of 43,905 at Miller Park. But that was the last run for the Brewers, and the Dodgers “nished off their rally this time around after nearly taking Game 1. Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Austin Barnes forced in another run with a bases-loaded walk off Jeffress, but the righthander escaped when pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal bounced into a double play. The Dodgers went right back to work in the eighth. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single before Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress, admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky before rounding the bases and participating in several different celebrations with his giddy teammates on his way to the dugout. Turner bounced back after striking out a career-worst four times in Game 1. It felt good,Ž Turner said. I knew it was a homer, and its cool to run around the bases and see all your teammates going crazy, jumping up and down waiting for you.Ž Jeffress also struggled in Game 1, allowing two hits while only recording one out. He was charged with two runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings in three appearances in the Division Series against Colorado, including a blown save in the opener. Its intense baseball games, man,Ž Jeffress said. Theyre going to be like this for the rest of the postseason. Were going to battle, theyre going to battle. Just be ready.Ž Los Angeles has scored eight runs against Milwaukees bullpen, all in the seventh inning or later. The more you face the relievers, the easier its going to get,Ž Bellinger said. It was Turners seventh career playoff homer. He was co-MVP of the NLCS last year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the “rst time since 1988. The Dodgers are making their sixth straight appearance in the playoffs while the upstart Brewers are in the postseason for the “rst time since 2011. That advantage in experience seemed to pay off „ especially when Turner came up with the big blow. He personi“es everything that I believe in as a baseball player, as a professional. ... Hes the glue for our club,Ž manager Dave Roberts said. Save for Yasiel Puig snapping his bat over his leg after striking out swinging with the bases loaded in the seventh, Los Angeles stayed steady as Milwaukee tried to hold on. Pedro Baez got four outs for the win, and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for the save. Jansen broke NL MVP-favorite Christian Yelichs bat for a groundout with a runner on second for the “nal out. REMEMBER WHENFormer major league slugger Prince Fielder threw out a ceremonial “rst pitch. Fielder said Counsell helped him a lot when they played together in Milwaukee. There was one time I was thinking about bunting and he told me if I bunt, hell punch me in the face,Ž a chuckling Fielder said.UP NEXTChacin had his worst start of the season at Los Angeles on Aug. 2, allowing nine runs, eight earned, and “ve hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 21-5 loss. The veteran right-hander is 5-5 with a 4.96 ERA in 12 career starts at Dodger Stadium. Buehler is making his second career start against Milwaukee. The rookie right-hander tossed seven innings of “ve-hit ball in a 1-0 loss to the visiting Brewers on July 31. By MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESST. PETERSBURG „ The Rays primary target this offseason seems to be adding a right-handed impact bat. And to do so, they are likely to get rid of the one they have, 30-homer hitting 1B/DH C.J. Cron. Why? In short, to try to upgrade. And gain some positional versatility. The Rays are in the unusual position of having some “nancial ”exibility, with at least a chance to shop on a higher shelf than usual. Whether that leads to Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson or Andrew McCutchen, or someone else similarly intriguing, via free agency or trade, they might as well look around. RELATED: More Rays coverage Cron did well (.253 average, 74 RBIs, .816 OPS, 2.0 WAR) but was not the kind of intimidating presence they could use in the middle of a lineup that still leans to the left, even after the wise addition of Tommy Pham. So rather than commit $5 million plus to Cron, theyd seem better served to trade him (having given up minor-league INF Luis Rengifo to get him from the Angels), and probably before the Nov. 30 contract tender deadline, which commits them to his salary. Then they can sort through the market, see what kind of “ts are available. At the same time, explore whether its worth trading one of the lefty-hitting out“elders (Mallex Smith most likely). They have the potential for DH and/or “rst base to be covered by lefty swingers Ji-Man Choi and Jake Bauers (unless hes ticketed for a season-opening Triple-A stint), and other options coming through the minors. And they could look in the spring at Matt Duffy and/or Daniel Robertson at “rst, just to see if there are even more options. Cron was good, but they have a chance to do better, and they should take it. Job fair Coach Rocco Baldelli is very much a hot nameŽ among candidates, as we heard from an MLB exec last week, for several, if not most, of the current six manager openings. Hes been reported to have interviewed or at least linked to the Twins (where former Rays hitting coach Derek Shelton is also a candidate), Rangers and Blue Jays. The Angels and Reds are also possibilities; the hot mess Orioles, well, maybe not. ƒ With senior VP Chaim Bloom interviewing last week for a GM job with the Mets, it wouldnt be a surprise to see his name also surface as a strong candidate in San Francisco. TV time With fewer big-name players but more wins, the Rays saw TV ratings drop 9 percent for games on Fox Sports Sun from last year (from 2.70 to 2.45), and about 6,000 households (to 46,000), per The Rays ranked 20th of the 29 U.S.based teams, and their games were third overall in the Tampa Bay market during primetime and “rst on cable. ƒ The next TV reporter will be the sixth hired in eight seasons, following Laura Rutledge, Kelly Nash, Emily Austen, Alex Corddry and Michelle Margaux, who left to cover the Houston Rockets.Is moving on from C.J. Cron the right move for Rays? TAMPA BAY TIMESC.J. Cron is greeted in the Rays dugout after scoring against the Blue Jays during the sixth inning on Sept. 21, 2018.

Page 6 SP The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) „ Jordan Ellis ran for a touchdown and Virginia kept Miamis high-powered offense from ever getting going. Ellis scored on a 7-yard run in the “rst half and Brian Delaney kicked three “eld goals for the Cavaliers (4-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Miami appeared to have stopped Virginia on a third-down run in the “nal minutes, but a personal foul call against Tito Odenigbo kept the drive alive and the Cavaliers were able to most of the rest of the clock out. The Hurricanes (5-2, 2-1) scored on an 11-yard run by Malik Rosier with 3:04 left, pulling them to 16-13, but when they tried an onsides kick, Virginia tight end Evan Butts “elded it and returned it 30 yards to the Miami 27. The Hurricanes used all three of their timeouts to stop the clock, but Odenigbos personal foul after Bryce Perkins was stopped a yard short of a “rst down foiled their comeback bid. NO. 13 LSU 36, NO. GEORGIA 6BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) „ Joe Burrow passed for 200 yards and had two short touchdown runs, LSUs defense staggered Georgias normally proli“c offense, and the 13th-ranked Tigers beat the No. 2 Bulldogs 3616 on Saturday to give coach Ed Orgeron a signature victory. Five fourth-down decisions by Orgeron in”uenced the result. LSU converted all four times it ran an offensive play on fourth down, sustaining three drives that produced a total of 13 points. In another instance, Orgeron called timeout and elected to punt on fourthand-2 after the offense initially remained on the “eld. That decision pinned Georgia at its 4, and Kristian Fultons interception of Jake Fromms pass shortly afterward set up another of Cole Tracys “ve “eld goals. Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 133 yards for LSU (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), and Justin Jefferson caught six passes for 108 yards, including a 41-yard snag of a pass ri”ed over the middle and between converging defenders. That catch set up Burrows second TD in the fourth quarter. Nick Brossette added a short touchdown in the “nal minutes after Burrows 59-yard scamper. Fans rushed the “eld, ignoring pleas not to do so from the public address announcer, as the game ended. Fromm had by far his worst game of the season for Georgia (6-1, 4-1), completing 16 of 34 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.IOWA STATE 30, NO. 6 WEST VIRGINIA 14AMES, Iowa (AP) „ Freshman Brock Purdy threw for 254 yards and three TDs and Iowa State throttled West Virginia, handing the Mountaineers their “rst loss in emphatic fashion. David Montgomery had a career-high 189 yards rushing for the Cyclones (33, 2-2 Big 12), who capped a wild day by beating a Top 25 team for the “fth time in seven tries. Iowa State scored 20 straight points after spotting West Virginia (5-1, 3-1) an early touchdown off a turnover. Purdy then found Deshaunte Jones through a pair of defenders on a sprawling 32-yard TD grab that, after a two-point conversion, put Iowa State ahead 28-14 with 12:17 to go. Iowa States defense dominated the high-”ying Mountaineers on a windy and chilly night. West Virginia gained just 152 yards, 420 below its season average.NO. 17 OREGON 30, NO. 7 WASHINGTON 27, OTEUGENE, Ore. (AP) „ C.J. Verdell scored on a 6-yard run in overtime and Oregon knocked off Washington. Verdell “nished with 111 yards but none were sweeter for the Ducks than the “nal 6, when he sprinted nearly untouched on thirdand-goal and set off a wild celebration in the east end zone of Autzen Stadium. The Ducks (5-1, 2-1 Pac12) were fortunate to reach overtime after Washington kicker Peyton Henry missed a 37-yard “eld-goal attempt on the “nal play of regulation. Henrys kick was wide right. Washington (5-2, 3-1) took possession “rst in overtime but had to settle for Henrys 22-yard kick after stalling inside the 10. The Huskies had a chance to force a long “eld goal as Oregon faced third-and-11 after a holding call. But Justin Herbert threw a strike to Dillon Mitchell for 17 yards and the Ducks had “rst-and-goal. Three plays later, Verdell sprinted into the end zone. Herbert didnt have his best day, playing in front of a large gathering of NFL executives that included Denver Broncos GM John Elway. He was 18 of 32 for 202 yards and two touchdowns.NO. 5 NOTRE DAME 19, PITTSBURGH 14SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) „ Ian Book threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Miles Boykin with 5:43 remaining and Notre Dame remained unbeaten. The Fighting Irish are 7-0 for the “rst time since 2012, the year they went to the BCS title game. Pitt (3-4) led 14-12 thanks to a long “rst-quarter touchdown drive and Maurice Ffrenchs 99-yard kickoff return to start the second half. Pat Narduzzis Panthers were looking to upset an Associated Press top-“ve team for the third straight season after knocking off No. 3 Clemson in Death Valley during the 2016 season and No. 2 Miami last November in Pittsburgh. But the Irish, who were held to 80 yards rushing, prevailed behind Book, who is 4-0 as a starter since replacing Brandon Wimbush. Book threw two interceptions, and had 264 yards passing. Kenny Pickett was 19 for 28 for 126 yards, and was sacked by Khalid Kareem „ Notre Dames only sack of the game „ for a loss of 14 yards on Pitts “nal possession to set up a fourth-andlong the Panthers could not convert. Pitt also failed on a fake punt on its second-tolast drive.MICHIGAN STATE 21, NO. 8 PENN STATE 17STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) „ Brian Lewerke threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis with 19 seconds left to lift Michigan State past Penn State, making it two consecutive seasons that the Spartans used a late score to hand the Nittany Lions a second straight loss. Lewerke completed 25 of 52 passes for 259 yards with an interception and two touchdowns for the Spartans (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten). They were coming off a loss at Northwestern. Davis, who came back from an injury he sustained on the previous drive, “nished with eight catches for 100 yards. Miles Sanders ran for 162 yards and a touchdown for the Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2). Trace McSorley completed 19 of 32 passes for 192 yards with a touchdown to become the programs career passing yardage leader.NO. 1 ALABAMA 39, MISSOURI 10TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa passed for 265 yards and three touchdowns before leaving early in Alabama victory over Missouri. The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) shrugged off another would-be challenger in the league, but got a scare when the star quarterback went down after sliding at the end of a run in the third quarter. Tagovailoa went to the medical tent on the sideline after aggravating a sprained right knee. He was joined by his parents, and Jalen Hurts led the Tide the rest of the way with a big lead over the Tigers (3-3, 0-3). Tagovailoa was playing with a brace on his right knee, sprained last week against Arkansas. Jerry Jeudy gained 147 yards on three catches, including an 81-yard touchdown from Tagovailoa on the games second play. DeVonta Smith had four catches for 100 yards and a touchdown before leaving with an apparent leg injury after a 57-yard gain in the second quarter.NO. 3 OHIO STATE 30, MINNESOTA 14COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Dwayne Haskins threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns and Ohio State held off persistent Minnesota. The Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) needed Blake Haubiels two second-half “eld goals and Haskins late touchdown pass from K.J. Hill to put away the Gophers (3-3, 0-3). Hill made the play of the game with a turnaround, one-hand grab that he turned into a touchdown in the second quarter. He had a career-high nine catches for 187 yards. For the second straight week, a heavy underdog came into Ohio Stadium and shut down the Buckeyes running game. The Gophers held tailbacks J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber to a total of 86 yards, without a single carry longer than 11. Minnesotas Mohamed Ibrahim ran 23 times for 157 yards and two scores.NO. 9 TEXAS 23, BAYLOR 17AUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ Shane Buechele came on for injured quarterback Sam Ehlinger early in the “rst quarter and Texas beat Baylor when the Bears “nal pass sailed through the back of the end zone. Charlie Brewer drove the Bears from their own 3 to the Texas 17 before he had to rush his “nal three throws under intense pressure. The victory made Texas (6-1, 4-0 Big 12 Conference) bowl eligible. Freshman running back Keaontay Ingram ran for 110 yards, Texas “rst 100-yard rushing effort of the season. Defensive end Charles Omenihu had two sacks and was chasing Brewer on the last three plays. Brewer passed for 245 yards and a touchdown for the Bears (4-3, 2-2).NO. 12 MICHIGAN 38, NO. 15 WISCONSIN 13ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) „ Shea Patterson accounted for 214 yards of offense and a touchdown, leading Michigan past Wisconsin. The Wolverines (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten) beat a ranked conference team for the “rst time since topping the Badgers two years ago. They have won six straight games since opening with a loss to Notre Dame. The Badgers (4-2, 2-1) had won a record 17 straight regular season Big Ten games, and 10 consecutive road games in and out of conference play. Patterson, who had an 81yard run, scored on a 7-yard run and connected on a 2-point conversion pass to put Michigan up 21-7 early in the third. Patterson was 14 of 21 for 124 yards and ran for a career-high 90 yards and a score on nine carries.TENNESSEE 30, NO. 21 AUBURN 24AUBURN, Ala. (AP) „ Jarrett Guarantano passed for 328 yards and two touchdowns and Tennessee snapped an 11-game Southeastern Conference losing streak. The Volunteers (3-3, 1-2) forced three turnovers from Auburns lackluster offense, intercepting two of Jarrett Stidhams passes and getting a strip sack that resulted in touchdown by Alontae Taylor. The Tigers (4-3, 1-3) are off to their worst SEC start since also going 1-3 in 2015.NO. 22 TEXAS A&M 26, SOUTH CAROLINA 23COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) „ Kellen Mond threw for 353 yards and freshman Seth Small had four “eld goals, including the go-ahead kick in the fourth quarter, for Texas A&M. The Aggies (5-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) won their third straight this season and moved to 5-0 against the Gamecocks (3-3, 2-3) since joining the league in 2012. Mond also had a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jace Sternberger in the second quarter and, when Small hit a 32-yard “eld goal on the Aggies “rst drive of the second half to go up 16-0, it looked like more than enough to put away the Gamecocks. But Jake Bentley, returning from a knee injury, led a pair of third-quarter TD drives „ and the two-point conversions both times. Vanderbilt jumped out to a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter. With the comeback, Florida won its “fth straight this season. The Gators also beat Vanderbilt (3-4, 0-3) for the “fth straight year and 27th time in 28 games in this series. Vanderbilt turned three turnovers into 17 points, and the Commodores also sacked Feleipe Franks twice and stripped him of the ball once. They also intercepted Franks once. Kyle Shurmur threw two touchdowns with his father, New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur, in the stands. Jamauri Wake“eld also ran for a TD. When Florida could hold onto the ball, the Gators simply dominated and outgained Vanderbilt 576-336 in total offense. Scarlett “nished with 113 yards rushing, and Lamical Perine added a TD run and 121 yards rushing. Franks threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns. His second, an 11-yarder to Freddie Swain, padded the lead midway through the fourth quarter to seal the comeback.TAKEAWAYSFlorida: The Gators struggled yet again with too many penalties. The costliest came when they left the sideline while Vanderbilt trainers tended to lineman Dare Odeyingbo and coaches started yelling at each other. That unsportsmanlike conduct penalty wound up being the second for Joseph. The linebacker had been flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on Vanderbilts third TD drive for slamming a running back to the ground after the whistle. Vanderbilt: The Commodores start 0-3 in league play for a sixth straight season. It didnt help that they lost running back KeShawn Vaughn early in the second quarter to an unspecified injury. Vaughn finished with one catch for 75 yards and a TD and he ran seven times for 56 yards before being hurt. POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gators played sloppily enough with penalties and turnovers that holding their ranking will be good after their escape in Nashville.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Roundup


The Sun | Sunday, October 14, 2018 SP Page 7By TOM JONESTAMPA BAY TIMESTAMPA „ Know what is one of the hardest things in football to do? Well, besides blocking Khalil Mack or getting a decent answer out of Bill Belichick? Looking at an NFL schedule before the season and predicting which games a team will win. Its impossible. Take todays Bucs game in Atlanta. Before the season, this game looked like a thorny proposition. Today? It looks a tad more rosy. Which just goes to show you that picking games in the NFL is risky business. Seriously, you might be better off ”ipping coins or throwing darts or letting your pet gold“sh pick. Thats because so much changes from week to week. Teams get hot and cold. Weather can play a factor. A great kicker can win a game and a lousy kicker can lose one. A bad call could ruin a good day. Most of all, injuries, especially at key positions, can play havoc with any team. Before the season, it looked like Kansas City was a pushover because it had a kid quarterback. Turns out that kid, Pat Mahomes, is pretty good. Or how about the 49ers? Before the season, they were a scary team because of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. But now? Garoppolo is out for the year and no one is afraid of quarterback C.J. Beathard. Three weeks ago, the Patriots dynasty appeared over. Now its back on track. And so much of a teams success depends on the opponents and catching them at the right or wrong time. See, you just never know what gifts the NFL schedule will give you, and it appears the NFL will give the Bucs another one Sunday after Tampa Bay already has had a couple. The Bucs second game of the year was against the defending-champion Eagles. But the Bucs caught a bit of a break by facing backup Nick Foles instead of star Carson Wentz. That was a gift, and the Bucs took advantage. Then came the next week against the Steelers. They were missing all-world running back LeVeon Bell. Their locker room had turned into a hot mess because of in-house bellyaching by diva wide receiver Antonio Brown. That was a gift and the Bucs did not take advantage. So now what? The Bucs might be catching another gift this Sunday as the Falcons have injuries to two key stars. Running back Devonta Freeman and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett are both beat up. Maybe theyll play, maybe they wont. Either way, they arent 100 percent, and those are gifts a team must take advantage of. Now, to be fair, the Bucs have some injuries, too, especially to their defensive secondary. Nevertheless, for Tampa Bay, this is a huge game. Besides the injuries, the Falcons, even with quarterback Matt Ryan, are not nearly as good as we all thought they would be. At 1-4, theyre last in the NFC South and are giving up points like they are the, well, Bucs. That makes this game winnable for Tampa Bay, certainly more winnable than it seemed when we all looked at the schedule before the season. And because its winnable, that makes it critical. Now, look, theres not a ton of difference between 3-2 and 2-3. A loss Sunday doesnt snuff out Tampa Bays season. But the Bucs need this game. Not just for the standings, but for their psyche. The loss two weeks ago in Chicago was the kind of loss that shakes your core and raises serious doubts about everything youre doing. The Bucs were beaten so soundly that you wonder if they can stop anyone or ever win again. So when you consider that and look at the gift the NFL schedule-maker might be giving you, you realize how important this game is. If you cant win this game against a beat-up 1-4 team with your starting quarterback “nally back in place, which games are you going to win? So who is going to win this game? Flip a coin. But who NEEDS to win this game? The Bucs.Sundays game is winnable for Tampa, which makes it critical TAMPA BAY TIMES PHOTOQuarterback Jameis Winston looks to pass during the second half of the Bucs loss to the Bears Sept. 30 in Chicago. By BARRY WILNERAP PRO FOOTBALL WRITERThere can be no better measuring stick for the Chiefs and young quarterback Patrick Mahomes than what they face Sunday night. Beat the Patriots in Foxborough and all that excitement in Kansas City might be validated. Remember, though, that the Chiefs, with Alex Smith, went into Gillette Stadium and won the 2017 kickoff to the season. They went on an upand-down ride the rest of the way, lost in the wildcard playoff round, while the Patriots straightened out and made the Super Bowl before losing to Philadelphia. Mahomes, of course, has looked immune to any sort of high-stakes pressure in leading the Chiefs (5-0) to the top of the AFC. He embraces this challenge and trying to outdo Tom Brady. It is going to be a great opportunity,Ž says Mahomes, who has a league-best 14 touchdown passes. He is one of the greatest quarterbacks, if not the greatest to ever play. I am going against their defense, but as a team we are going to go in and try to compete. They are a good team in the AFC every single year. Just to compete against one of the best teams in the league is going to be an awesome opportunity.Ž How familiar is Mahomes with three-time league MVP Brady, whom he has never met? I de“nitely watched a good amount of him in college (at Texas Tech),Ž he says. Coach (Kliff) Kingsbury actually played with Tom at one point. He liked to show me some things that he did where he was in the pocket, his pocket movements and things like that. I have de“nitely taken some things from him. He does it at such a high level, its something you have to strive to be like.Ž New England (3-2) is striving to be, well, New England. After a 1-2 start, the Patriots appear to have gotten back on their usual winning path. The weekend began with Philadelphias 34-13 road victory over the New York Giants. Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes for the Eagles (3-3). They beat the Giants (1-5) for the fourth straight time and seventh in eight games. Off this week are Detroit (2-3) and New Orleans (4-1)Pittsburgh (2-2-1) at Cincinnati (4-1)One of the NFLs most vicious and yellow-tinted rivalries As in: „These teams combined for four penalties for unnecessary roughness, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, one for taunting, one for roughing the passer, and two 15-yard penalties for grabbing a facemask in their previous meeting. „Cincinnati set a club record with 173 yards in penalties in that messy affair, when the Steelers overcame a 17-0 de“cit to win. More numbers of note: „The Steelers have won the past six games in this series, nine of 10 and 14 of 17. „The Bengals are 8-24 vs. the Steelers under coach Marvin Lewis „Lewis is 2-15 at Paul Brown Stadium against Pittsburg. „ Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is 244-1 in his native Ohio, including the postseason. Hes 13-2 at Paul Brown Stadium with 23 TDs, 10 interceptions. Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland (2-2-1) When last they met in Cleveland, the Browns won in their 15th game to avoid a perfect season on the wrong side of the ledger. So they lost every game in 2017, including at the Chargers. Not to speak too much of last year, but I could not believe and I did not feel like they were an 0-16 team or 0-14, whatever they were when we played them last year,Ž says Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. It was a good football team. They just did not “nd ways to win and so many (games) they had opportunities.Ž Theyve got two wins already and lead the NFL with 15 takeaways, two more than in the entire 2017 season.Chicago (3-1) at Miami (3-2)The Bears have won three in a row and come off a bye. They havent earned four straight wins since 2012. With Khalil Mack revitalizing the defense, Chicago ranks No. 1 against the run and second overall. If second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky truly has found the passing rhythm „ his six TD throws in a rout of Tampa Bay tied for second most in an NFL game „ the Bears needs to be taken seriously. Miami was taken seriously until it laid eggs at New England and Cincinnati, where it blew a 17-0 lead. The Dolphins rank third worst in yards and “fth worst in points. They have been outgained by 94 yards per game, which ranks third worst.Jacksonville (3-2) at Dallas (2-3)Oddly, Dallas has never won its “rst three home games at Jerry World. With RB Leonard Fournette still hurt, the showpiece matchup with Ezekiel Elliott disappears. Elliott has been the prime weapon for Dallas and is averaging 154 yards from scrimmage per game in the past three. But the passing game is 30th as Dak Prescott struggles without a topnotch receiver. Hell face the stingiest defense in the NFL.Indianapolis (1-4) at New York Jets (2-3)If any team needed the long layoff from a Thursday nighter it was the Colts. They went into New England undermanned and then got hammered with more injuries, giving them little chance against the Patriots. Assuming they are somewhat healthier, this is a far better chance for Indy to straighten out its season. Andrew Lucks arm looks strong, but who does he have to throw to if T.Y. Hilton isnt in the lineup? New York opened up its offense in a win over Denver, letting Sam Darnold occasionally ”ing the ball down“eld and it led to some huge plays. The Colts are vulnerable to that. Buffalo (2-3) at Houston (2-3) Each team comes off a tight victory in which the offenses were stagnant, while the defenses and kicking games were decisive. Houston wants things more open when it has the ball, with Deshaun Watson connecting on throws to DeAndre Hopkins. Buffalos solid second-year cornerback TreDavious White, will be tested. Apparently fully healthy after two tough years, Texans DE J.J. Watt is tied for the NFL lead with six sacks. Watt had an 80yard interception return for a score in his previous game against the Bills in Houston, a 23-17 win in 2014.Undefeated Chiefs, Mahomes await major test in New England NFL: Preview NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers By GENARO C. ARMASAP SPORTS WRITERJim Taylor, the ferocious Hall of Fame fullback who embodied the Green Bay Packers unstoppable ground game during the Vince Lombardi era and helped the team win four NFL titles and the “rst Super Bowl, died Saturday. He was 83. He died unexpectedly at a hospital in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the team said. Taylor played on the great Packer teams and was the leagues MVP in 1962. He scored the “rst rushing touchdown in Super Bowl history. He was a gritty, classic player on the Lombardi teams and a key “gure of those great championship runs,Ž Packers President Mark Murphy said of the player who left his mark on multiple generations of Packers fans.Ž Taylor was voted into the Hall in 1976. David Baker, president of the Hall, lauded Taylor for not only personifying Lombardis run to daylightŽ philosophy but for living his life as he played game, with passion, determination and love for all he did.Ž Taylor spent 10 seasons in the NFL after being drafted in the second round out of LSU in 1958. He joined a back“eld that featured Paul Hornung and began to thrive when Lombardi took over in 1959. Lombardi devised the Packers Sweep,Ž which featured pulling guards Jerry Kramer and Fuzzy Thurston clearing the path for Taylor or Hornung running around the end. The 6-foot, 216-pound Taylor best ful“lled the plays punishing effectiveness, a workhorse always charging forward, dragging wouldbe tacklers along. He taught me lots of character, and virtues, and principles,Ž Taylor said of Lombardi, with whom he occasionally feuded, in a 2001 interview with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He established a caliber of football that he felt like would be championship.Ž In 1960, Taylor ran for 1,101 yards, topping Tony Canadeos franchise mark of 1,052 yards in 1949. It was just the beginning. He Taylor ran for “ve straight 1,000-yard seasons from 1960-64 and led the Packers seven consecutive times in rushing. In 1961, Taylor ran for 1,307 yards and scored an NFL-best 15 touchdowns as the Packers rolled to a 37-0 victory over the Giants in Green Bay for Lombardis “rst title. The next year would be Taylors “nest. He ran for 1,474 yards and 19 TDs in 14 games, and scored the only touchdown in the Packers 16-7 victory over the New York Giants for the second of his four titles. Taylor said that season, when Green Bay “nished 13-1 in the regular season, stood out for him. Being voted the MVP of the league in 1962 is something that I look back and cherish,Ž Taylor said. I felt like I accomplished and achieved my goal.Ž Taylor was at his toughest, picking up 85 yards on 31 carries against the vaunted Giants defense featuring linebacker Sam Huff. Taylor sustained a gash to his elbow that required seven stitches at halftime and cut his tongue during the game. If Taylor went up to get a program, Huff was supposed to hit him. Wherever Taylor went, Huff went with him,Ž Kramer told The Associated Press in 2008. I remember sitting next to Jimmy on the way home and he had his topcoat on. He never took it off. He had it over his shoulder and the guy was shivering almost all the way home. He just got the hell beat out of him that day.Ž That game was one of several that helped launch pro football into the television era, and Taylors contributions to the Packers endured. Taylor, also a member of the 1965 title team, “nished his Packers career after the 1966 season as the franchises all-time leading rusher and held single-season marks for yards and TDs. He also scored the Super Bowls “rst rushing touchdown when the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in the inaugural championship game between the NFL and AFL.Jim Taylor, fullback for mighty Packers, dies at 83 NFL: In memory

After winning five state titles and having several memorable players pass through his gym, each group of players is special for Wheatley, but none can really compare to this years group. The thing Ill probably remember most about this group is that theyre kind of like my own kids,Ž he said. Theyre all friends with Brooke (Wheatley), so theyve all been sleeping over at my house since they were 8 years old. When they first got into high school, we had to train them to say coach Wheatley and not coach Brian. Theyve never been scared of me. A lot of groups will come in and be scared to death of me. If anything, I would raise my voice and they would laugh.Ž When his daughter Brooke turned 8 years old, Wheatley decided to give her and her friends a head start on learning the sport of volleyball through his Venetian Bay club team. Originally, the group began with Brooke, Carley Faulkner, Caitlin Montgomery, Sadie Kluner and Sophie Fraser, along with a few others. However, the youngest club teams were 10 years old, and Wheatleys group struggled to compete at first. Being so young, only one player on the team could actually serve the ball over the net. Knee pads covered nearly their entire legs, and their spandex fit like basketball shorts, said Wheatley. We started going to tournaments and we had to play in the 10-and-under group,Ž he said. We couldnt serve the ball over the net, so we had to hope the other team would mess up. So, we didnt win a match for the first year, which was fine.Ž Though they lacked the height and power to do much damage on the court, Wheatley adjusted his workouts to fit their needs. Using balloons, tennis balls and trampolines, he did whatever he could to size the game down to a childs level. Eventually, in the last game of the groups second season together, it paid off. We won our first match at the end of the second year, and you would have thought we won the national championship,Ž Wheatley said. While the girls were competing for secondto-last place in a club tournament, Wheatley convinced his team they were playing in the championship round. When they won, he handed out medals to the girls who couldnt have been more thrilled. Since that first victory together, the group has kept getting better. With aspirations of one day playing for Venice High, five of the original group stayed with the team all the way to the varsity level. And not only did the girls make varsity, but they also brought home their own state title in 2017. Its really crazy because we always thought about being state champions and playing for the varsity team at Venice one day,Ž senior Carley Faulkner said. Its really exciting because weve all become each others best friends and we all hang out outside of volleyball. They definitely mean a lot to me, Im gonna have to visit them when I go off to school.Ž Over the years, the girls became close. From playing volleyball together nearly year-round to traveling across the country to play in tournaments, the girls of Venice volleyball have become like a second family. Ive been with them for so long,Ž Brooke Wheatley said. Its weird to think about, that I wont be playing volleyball at all, or playing with them. So Im just enjoying the moment.Ž While this years senior group of Venice girls volleyball players have accomplished much since first coming together as 8-year-olds, their time together isnt over just yet. Though the regular season is finished and the Indians already honored their seniors at the TeePee, the most important stretch of the season is about to begin for Venice. It was emotional, but what Wheatley told us was that its not the last time we play in that gym,Ž Fraser said of Thursdays senior night. Its just our last time playing there in the pre-season. Playoffs is our real season, and now its time to go.Ž Coming off a 20-5 regular season and an undefeated run through 8A District-11, Venice has earned a bye for the first round of the district tournament. But when Tuesday comes around, the Indians, who will host the winner of Braden River vs. Sarasota, will begin their final run together „ with their eyes on the ultimate prize. Really my goal for that whole group was that I just wanted them to have a good high school experience,Ž Wheatley said. Theres a lot of different facets of high school, but I wanted that part to be as good as it could possibly be. Were not done this year, weve still got some work to do. Hopefully we play loose and go for it.ŽVolleyball seniors ready for one last run SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELLThe 10 Venice volleyball seniors and their parents were honored before Thursday nights senior night game against top-ranked Oviedo at the TeePee.
